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.

Gallery: Land Rover LRX Concept

On March 30, 2009, in Auto Tech, Eco Friendly, by KLS

A bit of car tech to start off the morning folks. This is the LRX concept from Land Rover. Its the car maker’s bid to create a vehicle just as good as their existing hefty off road 4X4s, but with significantly reduced carbon emissions and increased MPGs; in other words, the most efficient car they will ever have producted. We know this is possible, but it will be pricy and in addition to that Land Rover isn’t doing so well. From last December through next month, 1,800 employees have either been laid off, released or asked to leave. Our government (UK) have already given Land Rover a £27 million ($38 million USD) loan to help put the LRX into production, but once its done doing that, will this car be as popular as any of its other not so eco-friendly models? One thing is for sure, its not going to be cheap.

You will definitely remember during this year’s CES when Asus dropped an exciting bombshell featuring their latest creation the Eee HTPC Keyboard or Eee Keyboard PC. In a one line summary, it’s a pc inside a multimedia keyboard complete with wireless connectivity and of course that attractive but tiny 5-inch touchscreen display.

The wonderful news is that Asus have now revealed the pricetag which will be placed on this new fascinating gadget, CEO Jerry Shen says they’re working on two models to be released by summer time and these will range from $400 (£285/€317) – $600 (£428/€476). Prices like these will definitely be competitive against notebooks and netbooks, but I suppose the Eee Keyboard PC, once out will probably be in a market of its own! Check out the specs if you think you missed out on the Asus Eee Keyboard PC during the beginning of the year.
