Quite often when a new technology concept which we haven’t yet been able to bring to reality arrives we refer back to the 2002 Tom Cruise futuristic film Minority Report. Well this is that moment again. IDENT’s GestIC technology is a gesture based interface system and they’re showing off by describing a concept cube which allows the user to turn, twist, and pinch your data in 3D.

While there is still some time to go before anyone will be able to get their hands on an iPad. Those of you who are already dreaming of having the new Apple device may start “pretending” that you have one. If you have the iPhone or the iPod Touch and have had it jailbroken, you can now change the theme / UI on your device so that it looks literally the same as that of the iPad which runs the iPhone OS version 3.2. In fact, if you go through the entire list we have provided below, your iPhone or iPod Touch will more or less function similar to an iPad as well!

Hands on Sony DSLR Alpha 500 (A500)

On August 31, 2009, in Digital Cameras, by KLS

Last week Sony announced the launch of their next in the line Alpha series DSLR cameras, the Alpha 500 and 550 (see the press release after the break). To be out from the end of October this year, the DSLR-A550 and DSLR-A500 digital SLRs are based around new CMOS sensors with added manual focus confirmation live view mode using the main imaging sensor, in addition to Sony’s secondary-sensor Quick AF live view system.

Both cameras feature Sony’s better noise reduction, include an Auto HDR mode and offer sensitivity of up to ISO 12800. The 14.2 MP A550 features a higher resolution 921k dot 3″ tilt-angle LCD, while the 12.3 MP A500 comes with a 230k dot resolution 3″tilt-angle LCD.The pictures below are the first hands on photos taken with the Alpha 500 by the folks over at Pocket Lint.

It’s out! Finally a proper Facebook app update which I have really been looking forward to. The new Facebook app version 3.0 for the iPhone / iPod Touch aims to make staying connected to and sharing updates with your friends an even easier experience than before.

Probably the features which I have personally been most wanting to see is support for landscape mode, zooming photos, seeing latest b-day and updates and of course a complete photo management entirely from your iPhone. For iPhone 3GS users, you will definitely be delighted to know that the new Facebook 3.0 app now finally gives you the ability to upload videos which you have recorded.

The new Zune HD’s most attractive feature to me is probably the video output via its dock which basically allows you to see everything you’ve got in your Zune on TV. The TV interface as you will see in the video below runs smoothly, allowing you to do everthing as you normally would such as accessing music, video, pictures, even radio and podcasts…
