  • Christmas Coverage

    Ed Cone:

    For a nice Jewish boy from North Carolina like myself, the whole Jersey Italian Christmas is a multicultural awareness event, and the food is really good, too.

  • Sony DSC-U10


    While I was running around shopping yesterday, I stumbled across Sony’s DSC-U10.  I think that it is potentially a really cool subcompact digital camera.  The thing is tiny.  The only downsides to it that I can see are the lack of an optical viewfinder (not the end of the world) and no optical zoom (understandable given its size).  It’s priced right too: $199 for a tiny, sleek 1.3 megapixel camera that feels good in your hands.  Yeah, there are cheaper 1.3 megapixel cameras out there, but they tend to feel quite cheap, while this does not.  It does have a built in flash, which some of my el-cheapo toy digital cameras lack.

    I’m not quite sure if this will end up on my ‘things to wase money on’ list or not, but it’s a sweet little camera.  (There’s also a 2 megapixel version of the camera if you want a little more rez.)


  • On This Day…

    On this day four years ago, DPReview opened their doors.

  • Early & Adopter

    Sean and Scott have some great tidbits:

  • America’s Army: Operations 1.5.0

    I have not had a chance to play any video games lately, but America’s Army 1.5.0 has been released.  It looks like the major thing in this version (besides bugfixes and tweaks, of course) is an expanded Weapons Cache map which they claim is almost twice as big.  Hopefully that will rock, as Weapons Cache is my favorite newer map.

  • Happy

    Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, Happy New Year and all that good stuff.

    Looks like there’s still some snow on the ground here in DC.
