With the Samsung Galaxy S2 still winning accolades all over the shop, it was natural that Samsung was going to capitalise on this technology and release another version of the smartphone – albeit one that’s specs aren’t quite as impressive.
Enter the Samsung Galaxy R; a fine addition to Samsung’s portfolio and one that tries to copy much of what the S2 delivers.
After checking out the phone at IFA 2011, we did notice some differences between the Galaxy R and its bedfellow. For a start it is not as light or as thin as the S2 – the chassis has a touch more bulk (at 0.04 inches) [...]
It won’t be long before airlines start charging by the pound. Heck, you’re already docked a $90 fee if your bag’s weight exceeds 50 pounds. That’s why you might benefit greatly from this self-weighing luggage, displaying its weight in an easy-to-read LCD.
Simply pick up your bag, and its LCD screen tips you off if you’ve picked up one too many souvenirs on that shopping vacation. Nice idea — if it could prevent you from going over 50 pounds just once, it’ll almost pay for its $100 price. Now if they could just make it self-propelled, it would be ideal luggage

Well, Korean designers Sun ho Sin and Jeong eun Park have rethought the shape of the digital camera to alleviate those LCD worries, adopting a clamshell form factor that’ll better protect your display from wear and tear.
Called the Zero Angle, you can see how it works in the image above: all folded up, your LCD is snug against the front of your camera, mounted on a tray that swings around to the back, where you can view the screen. Thanks [...]
Until recently, you couldn’t see a live view of your picture as you frame it up on a digital SLR — the only way to see the image was through an optical viewfinder. Now, most of those fancy cameras let you see that image on a viewscreen using Live View, but this Pixel LD-W1 wireless remote control takes that a step further — away from that camera, that is.
Connect the 2.4GHz transmitter to the camera’s flash hot shoe, and take the receiver up to nearly 200 feet away, viewing your shot on a three-inch, 960 x 240 LCD screen. So now you can set your camera on a tripod, hide [...]
