Mimo Mini USB Monitor

Then we took a closer look at the Mimo Mini USB monitor and realized it is powered entirely via USB, no external AC adaptor or video card needed. This miniature display marvel also runs in landscape or portrait mode and also comes in a touchscreen version. Mimo Mini, we think we love you - full specs after the jump.

The Sharper Image Charging Valet


I’m sure most of the readers of this blog probably have way too many gadgets, and these gadgets have an annoying habit of always needing to be charged. Why not have one place where you charge them all simultaneously?

Well, at least you can have one place to do three at a time, which is what the Portable Charging Valet from Sharper Image is designed to do. Yes, because it is made by Sharper Image, it is a Charging Valet, not a charging mat. All the user has to do is unfold the Valet, plug it in, and there are three cords ready to charge his or her favorite mobiles. There is a video of it in action after the jump if you want to see more.

The Charging Valet comes with five of the most used power tips such as Apple, Micro USB, Mini USB, plus Samsung and LG. The valet conveniently folds up and magnetically locks together, and then can be placed in its included case that also locks magnetically. It is perfect for travelers, especially those who want to put their gadgets on the table near the side of the bed, and sleep while they charge.

Snap a Picture with The Canon EOS 40D SLR

Canon EOS 40D 10.1MP Digital SLR Camera with EF 28-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS USM Standard Zoom Lens

Are you that person at parties? You know who you are: you’re the one with the camera that drives everyone crazy by perpetually snapping and flashing your way into the fun. Are you sick of the quality of your point-and-shoot digital camera? Do you want a way to condense files without having to kill resolution? Do you want professional quality without professional hassles? If you answered yes to one or all of these questions, then the new Canon EOS 40D SLR is the camera you’ve been waiting for.

To be honest, this camera is nothing short of amazing. While most digital cameras boast about a whopping 6.0 megapixels (this refers to resolution for those non-techie folks out there), the Canon EOS 40D SLR has 10.1 megapixels. Seriously! 10.1! That’s a 40% increase in megapixels from your typical point-and-shoot digital camera which means that your pictures will come out 40% better. I don’t know about you, but that seems like a significant increase to me!

Also, with this model, Canon finally took into consideration that most of us don’t keep our cameras in padded boxes that are hermetically sealed to keep out dust. And, let’s face it, most of us drop our cameras once and a while—we’re only human! To combat these issues, Canon included a self-cleaning feature on the EOS 40D SLR that removes dust and grime build-up. Also, it made the display much sturdier. No more damaged displays when you fumble your camera. No Sir! This display is meant to last.

Another fabulous feature you will find on this camera is the huge—and of course, I mean huge in camera standards—display on the body. Instead of the measly one and a half to two inch displays that you are supposed to decide whether or not the picture you took is passable that most cameras have, the EOS 40D SLR has a three inch square display in the body. While this might not seem like a huge increase, the clarity is amazing and it is much easier to see the flaws in your pictures before you upload them onto your computer or print them out.

This camera also has the capability to reduce the storage size of your pictures while still protecting the quality. Most Canon cameras store images using RAW files which are sometimes overly large for uploads and storage. The EOS 40D SLR has the capability to reduce the memory used by converting image files to sRAW which take up around half the space as regular RAW files.

This camera is awesome and its price is affordable as well. Stop taking crappy pictures and upgrade to the Canon EOS 40D SLR. You’ll feel like a professional without spending professional money!

This LG U990 is reported to be the first 3G touchscreen phone from LG. The new U990 might look similar to the iPhone, but it actually offers some more interesting features that are sure to get you excited.

The phone sports a 5-megapixel camera with Schneider Kreuznach optics, a high-speed 3G HSDPA capability 3G HSDPA, a 120fps video camera –enabling super slow motion image playback in top quality, 170MB internal memory, a 240 x 400 touchscreen and the music player. Besides a nice touchscreen, the video camera has a twisting collar around the lens, which doubles as a shuttle dial to get your way through high-speed video footage.

However, US users should be a bit patient. This phone is initially set for a UK release in October and there is currently no word on when the same product may hit US shelves.
