Buying tips: Digital photo converter

On April 8, 2009, in Gadgets, Tips, by SSC

Having stumbled upon a digital photo converter recently, I felt it was quite confusing to choose which one would suit me the most. Obviously having one was useful because it would be the best solution for me to sort out all the old photos I have got in my house. If you don’t know too much about them, digital photo converters are also known as a photo to digital converter. Majority have got specs including at least a 5MP sensor and 1800 dpi resolution. The converter basically takes a digital photo of the regular photo that you slide down the tray. Then, simply connect the digital photo converter to the computer USB port, it will begin scanning and uploading pictures.

Today, there’s been news about Windows 7 Build 7077 x86 (32-bit) being leaked onto the net, this doesn’t come as much of a surprise as this has happened to previous builds too (Update: Though we don’t recommend, the leaked Windows 7 Build 7077 can be downloaded in ISO format here: http://torrentz.com/1c3a70cda770611b789bfc10d6ef7afe389509a9). But the latest Windows 7 build 7077 comes as a slight confusion, Windows 7 Build 7077 has build string 7077.0.090404-1255 this means it was compiled on April 4, 2009, at 12:55pm and the previously rumored windows 7 Build 7105 has build string 6.1.7105.0.winmain.090404-1235 indicating that it was too compiled on April 4, 2009 but at 12.35pm.

How it is possible to have a higher build compiled before than lower build seems awfully strange, if you know the answer to this question do let us know! Meanwhile, the below are some pics showing in greater detail of the leaked Windows 7 Build 7077.

vzw-blackberry-storm-leftThere was a rumor about the possbility of launching a next gen BlackBerry Storm 2 with WiFi on Verizon Wireless some time ago, but this was thought by most as a joke at first. However, sources have now confirmed that the rumor was in fact true. The BlackBerry Storm 2 will launch on Verizon with WiFi, obviously for far more greater connectivity and faster web browsing. I personally believe WiFi has been the single most importantly let down for the Storm, otherwise it would have been a far greater device with much more popularity. Sources also confirm that the next Storm, Storm 2 has a new screen technology, which aims to make typing easier. It is believed that the Storm 2 will be launching around September time, which makes you think – BlackBerry has reduced the cycle time of its first full touchscreen device to less than a year, they must be in a hurry!

Here are some of the latest Apple iPhone 3.o shots which have been leaked onto the net. The shot shows a design layout that looks similar to our present iPhone OS. However, with another unannounced new functionality, video recording feature,  more setting options, usage information and accessibility entry, this further supports earlier speculations that video recording, a feature many user have been hoping for is likely to be coming when Apple hopefully announces a new iPhone later in the Summer.

GM and Segway have teamed up before the New York Auto Show on what they’re calling the PUMA project. The prototype vehicle was exclusively unveiled today on the Today Show in the States. Personal Urban Mobility and Accessibility is what I believe PUMA stands for.
