Typo vigilantes go on spelling spree →
If you’re confused about the difference between “it’s” and “its”, or unsure how to spell “cemetery”, you’re not alone, and there’s plenty of evidence to prove it. That’s the conclusion of two young Americans who took it upon themselves to correct public typos during a three-month road trip across the country. They have written...
New Sony Alpha 55 and Alpha 33 to feature fixed... →
Wow. Amateur Photographer is reporting that these new Sony DSLRs will feature a pellicle mirror, which is cool because I wrote a blog post a while ago suggesting a return to this technology would be a good idea for DSLRs.
Tim O’Reilly believes that Apple is trying to build a fundamental challenge to...– Jason Kincaid on tech crunch. Here’s the irony in that statement. When the iPhone first debuted Apple was given a lot of stick for touting web apps, and not giving developers a proper SDK. Everyone claimed that web apps weren’t good enough and not up to the task. Now that the app store...
I’m just looking forward to the spoof version that will likely drop before the...– Matt Burns on Tech Crunch commenting on the latest Apple iPad commercial. Clearly Matt doesn’t understand the concept of a commercial. Why is it people feel that Apple ads need to be some sort of public service broadcast and a warning to potential users rather than being allowed to just sell...
Cool iPhone 4 Wallpaper →
This is pretty cool, although I had it on my phone for a few days before it started to annoy me (to cluttered) but it’s still pretty clever
Finally there is a half descent Tumblr app for the iPad. In fact I’m using it now to post this.
Nikon introduces 24-120mm F4 G ED VR lens →
Nikon Finally has a competitor to Canon’s venerable 24-105L lens. Can’t wait to see how this performs in real life.
Mobile Flash Fail: Weak Android Player Proves Jobs... →
You’ve probably seen this story by now - but what’s interesting is that there is no mention of it what so ever from Engadget or Gizmodo. The slightest speculation of a rumor of a problem of a readers friend’s friend with an iPhone gets splashed across the front page, but anything wrong with an android phone gets buried or not picked up at all. Totally balanced reporting there. It’s amazing...

Awesome coffee diary by Mike Harding
Modder makes all-in-one Keyboard/Trackpad Mac →
This is awesome. Reminds me of our old Atari ST and Commodore 64 of ye olden days. In fact, it would be cool if Apple made one of these - stick a HDMI port on the back of it and sell it cheap (in Apple terms) and you have a cool home/first computer.
BookBook for iPad →
Beautiful albeit somewhat over the top iPad case from 12 South. My favourite part from the description…. “BookBook for iPad is handcrafted in India. Ten hours of careful hand stitching and distressing go into each case to ensure every one has its own individual look.” Not sure they thought that one through before putting it on the web page. Just sayin’

Check out this cool free iPad magazine. It’s actually really good. I was expecting it to be fairly bland, being free, but there’s lots to read, if you’re technologically or design oriented.
O2's shift to online billing criticised →
Comms 10.08.2010 The move by mobile-phone operator O2 not to automatically send customers bills out in the post has been criticised by Labour communications spokesperson Liz McManus. O2 is advising customers that their bills will no longer be automatically sent out in the post, but that they can opt to have the bill sent by post if they wish. McManus has said she intends to...
The Lens is Not More Important Than the Camera →
There are widely-held sentiments in photography that don’t hold up under close scrutiny. Recently, a reader made the remark, “…besides, the lens is more important than the camera.” This is not an uncommon feeling among photographers. It was frequently expressed back in the film era, the general argument being that a camera body, no matter how exquisitely crafted, was really nothing more than a...

Hands up anyone who didn’t see this coming ?
IGN Video: Transformers Prime TV Trailer - Teaser →
Animation test from the new upcoming Transformers animated series. Looks cool. It’s being produced by the guys who wrote Star Trek and Fringe so it should be good.

Apple moves past antennagate, but videos are still... →
You may have caught this story over the weekend. Apple has removed all the “Antennagate” videos showing the death grip on various other manufacturers phones. The Loop correctly asses this move as Apple moving on. Unfortunately it hasn’t stopped other publications from looking for the more sensational (ie rediculous) reasons for the move, including “Apple is afraid of...
