Power and price

A few weeks ago we reviewed the Sony DSC-TX9, from the Japanese manufacturer’s new range of compact cameras. Another device in that range is the DSC-H70, which is somewhat less compact but offers much better value.

I’m not the type of person who’s usually turned on by megapixels and memory sticks, but this sleek little black camera did get me excited. Apart from the vivid 3.5” OLED touchscreen, which allows for simple selection and photo browsing, the fancy 16.2 megapixel sensor and sharp backlighting have the ability to turn even the most wilted of barflies into a blushing beauty.

Nice price, but does it have wings?

Red Bull Mobile has launched in South Africa, piggybacking on the Cell C network and with some of the most competitive prices available in the market.

Plot your trot

RUNNING is worryingly enjoying massive uptake as a sport, we’re told. And as more people increasingly take to the road, technology companies are looking at how they can coin it from the trend. For example, Apple has partnered with Nike to produce iPod accessories that track your running and allow you to share information about your jogs with friends, monitor your times and other information.

Cheap is as cheap does

THE CAMILEO S20 doesn’t promise the world but does deliver on what it does claim: a simple, affordable digital video camera. And at R1 500 it’s hard to argue over price. The five megapixel S20 takes both videos and still pictures and allows you to upload videos from the camera straight to Google’s YouTube video service – although it does have to be connected to your computer for the latter, which sort of negates its usefulness.

Smartphones are many things but indestructible isn’t one of them. The iPhone 4 screen will shatter if you look at it funny and most phones don’t like being dropped very much. Get them near water and not only do they stop working but your operator won’t even help you with the problem.

The real deal

There are very few technology products that live up to the marketing hype that accompanies their entry to the market. Companies making truly amazing devices are quietly brilliant. Nintendo didn’t create a big hoo-ha about its latest gaming console, the 3DS – which is easily the most remarkable piece of technology we’ve seen over recent years.

Rocks and drops

WHEN MY FIRST SON was born one of the first things I did was buy a new point-and-shoot camera. Less than two years later the thing looked like it had been left lying on the M1.

Big on being small

THE VPC P115 IS easily the smallest laptop I’ve ever seen. It’s also the “loudest” in terms of its colour. The unit dropped off at Finweek for review is bright pink, including its keyboard keys. It’s also available in other colours, including orange, green, white and, thankfully, black.
