Pocket Cameras

Just signed up for Vimeo.  I picked up a Flip Mino HD last Christmas, but so far only have a few videos done.  If you’re interested in these new pocket cameras, this video here is a comparsion betwee the Flip Mino HD and the Kodak Zi6.  I personally haven’t gotten my hands on the Kodak yet, but I like the Flip a lot, but I wish I could extend the memory.  60 minutes seems fine, unless you go out for long periods without access to your computer, forcing you to delete videos and prioritize those youw ant to keep.  Check out the video though, as it does a great job explaining the differences between the two.

Balut in HD

Been a while since I’ve posted on Digital Robots, and even longer since I’ve posted about new toys on the web (since this is just a post of my cousin eating balut, a Filipino delicacy and also an unborn duck egg).  Enjoy!

Flock could be my new favorite browser

Since I’m all about Web 2.0, it’s kind of ridiculous that I didn’t check out Flock a lot earlier. I was just a lot more comfortable with Mozilla Firefox, and I customized it to my liking to include several different themes to choose from and plug-ins such as Cooliris Previews and Piclens to make my browsing easier.

However, Flock just caters to all your social media needs from the startup. Everybody has a Facebook page and most include Flickr, YouTube, and Twitter in their daily online browsing – Flock makes it easier to keep track of your friends on each account without having open each site yourself. I especially like how I can publish a new blog post without having to open up my blogging software (though I admit that’s not the case here, as I couldn’t figure out how to position the image to the right of my text). You can even upload images to Flickr and video to YouTube using the 10 key buttons located at the bottom of the basic web browser buttons (see image).

It will probably be a little overwhelming on your first go around with the browser, but the more you use it the more you’ll become familiar with all the available features and it may end up your favorite browser yet.

I now know what I want to focus this blog on. I just need to find the time to do so. Hopefully I can finish setting up a few more things before I kick this off. Here’s a hint:
