The Fusion Plate Plays Nice With Camera Straps And Tripods [Kickstarter]

Those quick-access camera straps which loop through a ring screwed into the tripod socket are fantastic and terrifying in equal measure. Fantastic because they really are fast, convenient and comfortable to use (just ask Cult of Mac’s Traci Dauphin, who I have never seen without an Olympus hanging from a Black Rapid strap around her neck); and terrifying because you’re hanging your expensive camera from a strap which could unscrew itself any any  [Read More…]

The Story Of An iPhone So Nice It Was Stolen Twice

You don't have to jailbreak to give your iPhone a little extra personality.

You should never steal an iPhone while wearing pink shoes. It doesn’t sound like a piece of vital information, but in the hard streets of Brooklyn’s Prospect Park it is, because those pink little things are going to get you caught.

One thief learned that lesson the hard way, after he stole an iPhone from a girl, and then the  [Read More…]

Canon’s Instagrammatical Camera Plays Nice With Your iPhone

This is Canon’s Instagram camera. That’s right – this little point and shoot is designed to work with your smartphone, connecting via Wi-Fi and even pre-processing some of your pictures for you.

The Powershot N is a neat little gadget. It’s square, for one, and can be used in any orientation you like thanks to the round-the-lens zoom ring and the flip-out screen. But the real gimmick is that it works with smartphones.

We’ll  [Read More…]

Samsung’s New NX300 Camera Plays Nice With Smartphones [CES]

As Samsung improves its cellphones by adding proper cameras, so it is tweaking its cameras to make them more like pocket computers. The new mirrorless flagship NX300 adds better Wi-Fi connectivity and a massive 3.3-inch, 768,000-dot 16:9 touchscreen.

The camera is also improved over the NX210. It has a 20MP APS-C sensor, hybrid AF (which adds the way-faster phase-detection autofocus found in SLRs to the existing slow-but-accurate contrast-detection AF), and a new processor capable  [Read More…]

A Nice & Simple Binary Clock Screen Saver for Mac OS X

Binary clock screen saver

Minimally styled clock screen savers are fairly popular and we’ve shared a variety of them here before, but it’s hard to get more minimal than a binary clock. The aptly named BinaryClock is just that, a free and simple binary clock screen saver for OS X that has some nice color effects that change with the time. Binary clocks are also fun because the average person may  [Read More…]

Lekh Diagram Is A Nice Free App, But You Need To Pay Up To Export [Review]

The premise: quick, simple diagrams…

Lekh Diagram is a clever and potentially useful diagramming app for iPad, “free” on the App Store, but not if you want to make serious use of it.

If you want to make some kind of flow chart, org chart or almost any other kind of chart, it’s easy to do inside Lekh. Scribble simple shapes – circles, triangles, squares and so on – and  [Read More…]

Dooo Is A Nice Todo App For Doers [Review]

How do you dooo?

Another day, another todo app. There’s a bewildering variety of choice in this category, and newer phones all come with Apple’s own Reminders app, which is capable although not to everyone’s taste.

This one, oddly named DOOO, is nicer than most. For two bucks, it combines a thoughtful approach to feature design with stylish looks and a minimal, simple layout.

DOOO’s primary view is two columns:  [Read More…]

[Review] Get A Nice Christmas E-Card Maker for Your iDevice
