In a perfect world, we'd all have cameras like the new XF1 from Fujifilm. Launching in October for US$500, these 12MP shooters clad in fake red, black or tan should reach that retro itch we've been dying to scratch.
Is there anything here to warrant a purchase though? We've got a high-definition FUJINON 25mm wide angle F1.8 lens, macro shots as close as 3cm, a brand-new menu dial to quickly access the manual settings and the EXR CMOS sensor that promises ...
This week I am really excited about my interviewee, not only because I really love his work, but I do appreciate his frank approach to everything he does. I’ve used thalamus’ kernels on all of my Android devices and his kernels have improved the performance and battery life of my HTC Desire, Nexus S and now my Nexus Prime so I’m very familiar with his work and the benefits his kernels offer.
On occasion he can be brutal towards ignorant users, ...

We almost, almost missed this story and ironically, it's one of the most important tech innovations to emerge this year. Intel's revealed it's fourth-gen CPU, called "Haswell", and it's specifically aimed at making mobile computing faster, better and more hardcore.
At the Intel Developer Forum in San Francisco, Haswell has been revealed to have 20 times more power than the 2nd-gen Intel CPUs of yore. Additionally, and by 2013, Intel plans to add CPUs with even lower power requirements ...
Well what did you expect? The latest demo from one of the world's most popular sports franchises, FIFA 13, has been downloaded almost two-million times in the past three days. That's 1.99 million downloads, in 73 countries for the the PC, Xbox and PS3.
Let's not even mention the pre-orders, which hit 875 000 this past week. EA notes that this is a 29% increase in downloads over FIFA 12. FIFA 13 is scheduled for launch in South Africa come 28 September.
Want to ...
The point-and-shoot might be a dying breed but that doesn't mean that the manufacturers can't occasionally crack out something fun.
Case in point: an as yet unnamed Olympus has been spotted by Digicam Info:
As Engadget points out, the camera could well be a successor to the XZ-1 model. It certainly looks the same, although a faux-leather grip and a toggle have been added.
If you suddenly feel a little adventurous you can also kit it out with a tough-looking underwater cover. ...
So it was that time of year again where your favourite tech blog goes into overdrive. But I’m not here to try to spin relatively disappointing releases into something awesome. Now that we have seen what every phone maker released for the next year, we can now decide which phone is actually the best one to get. I’m not including HTC in this because let’s be honest, the One X is old and I’m not too excited about the 8X ...
Behold, a fantastic behind the scenes look at Microsoft's and 343's upcoming shooter, Halo 4.
There's plenty to say about Halo 4. Following directly on from Halo 3, Halo 4 shifts the focus to an elder alien race called the Promethean's. The video's pretty detailed and lifts the lid on a bunch of folk you're going to blow the shit out of.
What we love though is how detailed the Halo lore is. In every Halo title there's been an overflow ...
The Apple iPhone 5 is finally here, with the latest arrival boasting a 16:9, 4 inch screen, new smaller port, thinner, lighter design and 4G LTE.
Last year's iPhone 4S always felt like an incremental upgrade rather than a true step change, and although it sold wonderfully for Apple and brought some interesting additions, few would argue against the suggestion that it opened the door for competitors.
As a result, this year's launch was perhaps most important for Apple since the very ...
There are not one, but two decent reasons to read this story. One, it's not about the iPhone 5 and two, it's the launch date of Nintendo's fabled Wii U. Come 8 December in Japan, the world may sit up and take notice of the Big-N again.
Two will tell the tale
The successor to the Wii, the Wii U is an interesting experiment for one of the world's oldest gaming companies. Instead of a standard controller, the Wii U has ...
