Ludo Schildermans heeft de nieuwe 5 megapixel camera getest en neergeschreven wat hij ervan vond. De reviewer geeft de camera een 3/5.
Hij is vooral erg handig door zijn kleine formaat, maar verliest hierdoor toch geen kwaliteit.
Enkel bij overtollig zonlicht laat het LCD scherm het wat afweten om een goed beeld op het scherm te toveren, doordat de camera geen optische zoeke heeft.

Elite computer programmers searching for a cool way to differentiate themselves from mere mortals need look no further. Das Keyboard, a division of Metadot Corporation, today announced the launch of a keyboard designed specifically for a certain class of geeks -- not just normal techies, but only those who have risen above the pack: the UberGeeks.
Das Keyboard is an enhanced 104-key USB PC keyboard equipped with blank keys mounted on precision and individually-weighted key switches. Since users cannot look at the keys while typing, their brains adapt and memorize the key positions, resulting in faster and more accurate typing. In addition to its unique appearance, Das Keyboard features five different levels of force required to activate its keys. Whereas most keyboards use a standard 55 grams of force to register each key, Das Keyboard's keys are divided into groups with feedback springs weighted differently, from 35 grams to 80 grams, which corresponds to the strength of the finger that touches the keys. The result is more comfort for the user's hands. Das Keyboard is built from premium keyswitch technology and its keys are factory-tested to withstand over 30 million keystrokes.
"Das Keyboard was designed for elite programmers who write sophisticated code under tight deadlines, someone who makes impossible projects possible or the person that colleagues turn to when they need IT advice," said Birgit Guermeur, project manager for Das Keyboard. "This keyboard is a must-have for gung-ho coders or gamers who want a keyboard that not only looks cool but accelerates their output rates."
Das Keyboard is compatible with all modern operating systems including Windows, Linux and MacOS X. Priced at $79.95, Das Keyboard is available now from the company's Web site at http://www.daskeyboard.com/ or from ThinkGeek, Inc. (http://www.thinkgeek.com/) at 888-433-5788.
Das Keyboard is a division of Metadot Corporation, the developer of one of the world's most popular free, open-source portal server solutions. Founded in 2000, Metadot is a privately-held corporation based in Austin, Texas. For more information on Das Keyboard, log on to http://www.daskeyboard.com/.

It’s easy: you chose an image and write the text that you would have on the disc. The only thing that you have to do: buy a LightScribe-compatible disc. The DVD writer burns his disc like usual but when he’s ready, turn the disc and let burn a second time. Perfect and professional looks like you buy a CD/DVD. So you don’t have to bungle anymore with stickers or even terrible, with a felt-tip pen writing on top of the disc.
LightScribe becomes gradually standard. The newest PCs , desk and notebooks, have one now. When you recently buy a new PC, extern appliances will help you. LaCie has released this new DVD writer which you can burn your own professional label.
Besides he’s ready for the next generation discs, because he can handle a 8,5GB dual-layer. Included in the packet you find the full version of EasyMediaCreator7PC, a really excellent burning program. He also is being able to plus and min RW. You can plug it in on your PC with USB2-port. On a USB1-port it’s too slowly.
Price: about € 469
