9/12    iPhone 4S has new features like 8MP camera and Siri, and iPhone 5 has
        4" display and 4G LTE.  My 17-month old Android phone has 8MP camera,
        4.2" display, built-in voice search and voice typing, and 4G LTE.  I
        don't get it.

3/7     Does anyone else think the iPad3 isn't really that much better
        than the iPad2?  I don't really understand the hype.
        \_ 5MP camera?  My 1-yr-old Android phone has a 8MP auto-focus camera
           (plus a 1MP focus-free one on the front.)
              \_ The iPad camera seems like a joke to me.  The iPad is just
                 to big to be useful for taking pictures.  Maybe it makes

9/28    A lot of photos I take come out blurry. A lot of them are clear,
        too, but the proportion of blurry photos is high. This has led me
        to take more photos than I otherwise would in hopes of getting a
        clear one. I took some photos of the Rio grande and they
        were all awesome, but the next day I took photos of landscapes
        and almost all of them were blurry. Could it be the camera or is

4/8     I want to by my mom a point and shoot camera for about $150 because
        she's running around with this 1 megapixel camera from back in the
        day. I looked at Canon and Nikon, but I am not as into this stuff as
        some people on MOTD are. I take photos with my Blackberry. What's
        a good choice in that price range? Definitely not more than $200.
        \_ Canon has the best point and shoot cameras.  The A1100 or A495

10/16   Interesting new Canon P&S cameras: G11, S90.
        http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/find/newsLetter/PowerShot-G11-S90.jsp
        BTW, has anybody used the new D10 [not the old 10D] ... any thoguhts?
        I'm trying to pick between {my G10 + buy waterproof housing} or
        a buy a nw D10 (beach, boat/raft/kayak, snorkel ... not scuba).

        I just hope that copycats won't pop up everywhere and cause airline
        crashes.
        \_ How did they beat NASA?  This is cool, but comparing it to
           NASA is just stupid.

9/6     I find the following ad pretty offensive. What's the best way to
        find out who this is? Garden Grove is full of Vietnamese.

        Like new, has 212 actuations. Includes everything that originally came with the camera.

        Are they our of their minds? :-)
        \_ Doesn't seem that bad, considering (from the article) "By default,
           the app will only run calculations when the device is plugged in
           and charging (for example, overnight) and will only transmit data

12/11   What are some cheap wireless plans you can buy where you can
        get the sim-card and stick it into any device of your choice?
        \_ Any plan which uses a SIM. I have used my AT&T SIM in a
           Blackberry, two different iPhones, and even an old Razr. I
           assume you mean domestic use only.

9/19    Why are most latest smartphones called "<model> by <manuf>" rather than
        "<manuf> <model>" like in the older models?  E.g. "Droid X2 by
        Motorola", "ThunderBolt by HTC" and "Revolution by LG", vs. "Motorola
        Citrus", "HTC Trophy", "LG Cosmos Touch".  Is is just a matter of
        being fashionable?
