Manfrotto’s new Pixi tripod is built to supports hefty compact cameras, but will be equally at home when shoved under your iPhone (via a case with a tripod screw mount, of course).

The iPhone 4S arrives in Italy today – along with another 22 countries – and the Italians are so into it, they are apparently standing in orderly lines to get it.* Outside the Roma Est store in the country’s capital, however, Apple employees went on strike. The unidentified leader in this video from blog iSpazio says they have decide to “strike different” – as their banner and T-shirts say – because they have asked store management to meet a series  [Read More...]

You can hear a collective sospiro of relief from Italian Apple fans today after a judge in Milan denied a request by Samsung to block sales of the iPhone 4S in a preliminary hearing. At stake was the launch of the iPhone 4S on October 28, the device that some Italians have already been buying on eBay  just to say they’ve established intimate relations with Siri before anyone else. Today was  [Read More...]
