If shopping blogs stop posting new cameras every week maybe the manufacturers would quit introducing new models every couple days. Yeah, right! That’ll never happen, so let’s get on with it. This here is the Lumix GX1. It’s new. It has more features than anyone needs, like stereo sound to go with full HD footage; it also takes pictures, huge ones.
Traditional burials inevitably lead to zombification. If you don’t want to risk returning as an undead walking corpse maybe you should have your cremated ashes packed into ammo and shot out of a gun. Seriously, the maniacs at Holy Smoke will load you up and send the bullets back to your family for safe shooting.
Obviously intended to compete head-on with the MacBook Air, Acer drops this little nugget into the ultra-light notebook ring. Tidbits include a second generation Core CPU, a 13.3-inch HD screen, both a SSD and HDD, and a 0.51-inch thick chassis made out of aluminum and magnesium that weighs just 2.98 pounds. Available later this week.
It seems like every week some camera company is revolutionizing photography again. Nikon is one of the few brands that may actually be doing it. Their latest creation doesn’t appear to have any buttons or controls, maybe what’s revolutionary is the fact that you can’t screw up the photo.
Go ahead, “touch it, love it” their website says, just don’t ask us how the damn things works. Do we look like Popular Science to you? It’s a high-tech alarm clock from award-winning designers Giebert & Funk. That’s what we know. We featured its big sister a while back and we struggled to explain that one, too. But it looks slick, futuristic, and keeps perfect time. This one comes in seven colors.
Years ago you ditched your big, boxy TV and upgraded to a flat screen. So why are your poor pet fish still swimming around in a tank from the 70s? They’d surely be happier in a sleek, new wall-mounted tank. And it’s not just good for the fishies, it’s good for you. These tanks save space, energy and feature convenient, touchscreen controls and auto feeding.
Unless you went back to shooting film, which sounds cooler than actually doing it, your vintage-retro-heritage attire is probably clashing with your camera right now. The Pentax Q Black digital camera will fix that. It looks like a 1960s rangefinder but it’s actually a compact digital that shoots a 12.4 MP file and offers a whole slew of interchangeable lenses. There, style uncramped. You’re welcome.
The rules and requirements of Swiss law make it very difficult for any watchmaker to achieve the elite status of creating truly ‘Swiss Made’ timepieces. Among other things, they must be made of high-quality Swiss materials with the case assembled in Switzerland. SoCal tastemakers Nixon Watches have now achieved the Swiss stamp of approval and damn, it looks good.
If these Beastie Boys action figures were a penny less than the $750 price-tag, it would be a little sad wouldn’t it? Like, if they were at K-mart for $6.99 they’d suck. You’d be like, damn the Beastie’s musta hit the skids. But nope, those 3 rich-ass, groundbreaking white dudes are donating the proceeds of this limited edition collection to children’s cancer charities.
