The backup system you have working — in this case automatic, off-site file backup — is the system which will save your business some day. This one is very good.
A common organizer, auto-analyze, powerful JPG and RAW processing and wonderful video production make it a tough act to beat.
Camera makers should dump their dense, boring user manuals in favor of Busch's guides. There's more including WordPress, photo tools, blogging.
Carrying too many bodies and lenses? Probably. Something sturdy, secure and carry-on compatible is needed.
When the latest Windows update mangles a video card or network card driver, think about how nice it would be to have a really good driver updater.
Think Tank Photo seems bent on making itself the gold standard in pro camera bags. Is this shoulder bag one of the most versatile ever?
Productivity and organization fall flat when they run into the rather limited Windows file explorer. Fast access to regularly used folders is easier than you think.
Medium size photo/laptop backpacks come and go. The best stay with us for years. This is one of the best we've seen.
If you travel with more than a shoulder bag full of gear, you need something that will protect the load and make it easy to go places.
Pros know that if you don't get the shot, you're out of business. Tough, crowded, fast moving situations require special solutions.
Crumpler is a bag maker which insists on being different. Care and attention to detail help create wonderful photography products.
The mid-size entry in the Urban Disguise series provided us with enough incentive to physically beat it up and overstress it. The bag took it all.
There are camera bags and then there are Think Tank camera bags. Lots of competition means better products. Think Tank is at the top of its game.
The best Photoshop plug-ins get better because the developers listen to end users. Nik Software listens. Digital photographers are demanding sophisticated processing effects.
If you've got boxes full of old 35mm slides and negatives, it's probably time to start scanning before everything falls apart, gets lost, or gets soaked in a flood.
Connect a laptop to the Internet, anywhere you've got cell phone service, through your BlackBerry's data connection and avoid some really crazy per-megabyte carrier charges
HTC has steadily grabbed more market share by regularly turning out superb smartphones offering slick designs wrapped around great features
A concise desktop reference guide for all standard, W3C-compliant HTML, which uniquely also includes browser compatibility charts for each element
Superb quality, purpose-built SLR and prosumer camera shoulder strap that's made in the U.S. and made to last

Boynq Wakeup - iPod Lovers Alarm Clock
So as an ipod lover you may have been looking for a cool dock with alarm clock capabilities. Unfortunately most of the solutions out there are pretty dull looking. However, fear not, Boynq, have announced a new iPod clock stereo with a cool design.
The device features three beautifully integrated LCD displays, which show the time, radio stations and input channels in a soft white light. The Boynq Wakeup supports
iPod Minis, standard 4G, 5G and Classic iPods, all generations of the Nano, and the iPhone as well as the iPod touch. iPods are docked on top of one of the panels.
Devices can be charged and synched at the same time, and other audio sources are supported via line-in. No price or release date as yet, but black and white models will soon be available.

iPhone Reviews Summary
|The reviews for the iPhone are coming hard and fast ... most like what they see, and are impressed by what Apple have produced. However below I've listed the good and the Bad.|
Good Things -
It's a great iPod with some web capabilities
Cover Flow feature is awesome
Orientation sensors are cool
Display quality excellent.
The UI is excellent and has only served to raise the bar...
Battery life is more than most of us expected.
'Visual Voicemail' is pretty cool...
The glass screen is remarkably resilient.
Microsoft Exchange is supported
No User Replaceable Battery ... Shame on you Apple yet again for being so inconsiderate!!! (A Phone without this, is a truly pathetic omission).
The virtual keyboard is frustrating with a learning curve...
The Absences of 3G is a mistake.
Web browsing is real slow unless your use wireless.
OS X uses 700MB of the 4GB/8GB Memory.
No A2DP support – Stupid considering it's a media device!!!
No cut, copy or paste options for text – staggering
No editing of PDF, Word or Excel documents.
No browser support for Flash or any other embedded video
Poor voice call quality
2MP Still camera only – no video recording.
No support for MP3 ringtones.
Contacts must be scrolled through – no searching or voice dialling...
No Memory Card slot!!!
The bottom line is that it makes a great iPod, but the phone capabilities and several features need a rethink...

iPod Mods offer 100GB Upgrades for iPods and Zune
|iPodMods are offering to spruce up your favourite media player with a massive 100GB of storage. The Zune, both 60GB and 80GB iPods will accept the upgrade with some ease, however, the 30GB 5G and 5.5G iPods require a slightly modified back cover. |
Do you really want to spend the $300 required for this though. Thanks to Engadget for this lead. Good luck with the decision, I for one, can't be bothered.

100 Million iPods Sold
|Apple announced the sale of its 100 millionth iPod. Quite the milestone really. "At this historic milestone, we want to thank music lovers everywhere for making iPod such an incredible success," said Steve Jobs, Apple's CEO, in a statement. "iPod has helped millions of people around the world rekindle their passion for music, and we're thrilled to be a part of that."|
With so many units sold it'll be hard for anyone to challenge it's position in the marketplace, although I've said it before, I think the mobile phone industry is beginning to make serious inroads with their latest generation of phones with multimedia support.

iPod Virus Created
|Kaspersky Labs have created Podloso, a virus design to demonstrate a minor security hole in the iPod. For the Virus to work the user must actually download it. The virus will only infect an iPod with Linux installed. Podloso cannot spread to other iPods on its own, one in the right folders on an iPod the virus will make all songs and videos unplayable. Instead of playing back the affected files, the iPod will display an error message which reads, "You are infected with Oslo the first iPodLinux Virus." For more visit tgdaily.|

Roth Audio iPod Dock
Roth Audio are a British company, who produce Music Cocoons, tube based amps and high fidelity docks for the iPod based audio enthusiast. I'm not sure about their claims to be able to produce sounds with warmth and dimension, but, they do however recommend using a lossless compression format for achieving the best results with these music cocoons. I would love to get my hands on one to review, just because they look so funky and cool. There several units in the works but the first with real information is the Music Cocoon MC4.
