Nikon announced yesterday that it will add an 800mm f5.6 supertelephoto lens to its product line, helping reduce some competition between Nikon and its rival Canon. Nikon has not mentioned how much it will cost nor when it will ship, but we are expecting somewhere around the same price as Canon’s EF 800mm f/5.6 L IS USM, which comes in at $13,000.
Although this seems like an extremely high price to the average customer, it is definitely worth it for professional photographers, especially those who do nature shots such as bird watching, and obviously paparazzi photographers (they can even have much more expensive lenses).
Nikon also mentioned that it will show off the 800mm lens at the Photokina show in Cologne, Germany this September. We’ll keep you updated on the status of the 800mm supertelephoto lens as more info becomes available.By Ubergizmo.

Although this is not really the Boeing Phone that the American aircraft manufacturer promised to us a few months ago, Boeing is at least trying to integrate the best that mobile technology has to offer to its jets. And it begins with the Boeing 787 Dreamliner – a long-range, wide-body, twin-engine jet airline that can carry hundreds of passengers. Boeing is saying that it will be integrating two Android-based entertainment systems on the Dreamliner. The said two in-flight entertainment and connectivity solutions (IFECs) are the Panasonic eX3 and the Thales TopSeries Avant.
Boeing recently integrated the Thales TopSeries Avant IFECs to the 787 Dreamliner of Qatar Airways. Qatar Airways 787 has two classes – economy and business – equipped with 7-inch and 10-inch touchscreen displays. Every IFEC will will sport an STMicro dual-core ARM processor, 1 GB of RAM, and a 256 GB storage capacity. The Thales TopSeries Avant IFEC will also be equipped with an Android handset that will presumably run applications that aren’t suited for larger screens. As for the version of Android used on the system, ExtremeTech believes that it will run either Android 2.3 or Android 3.0.By Ubergizmo.

If you’ve got an account on the NVIDIA forums, you probably noticed an announcement about the forums being hacked recently. NVIDIA took the forums offline last week to investigate the breach – it turns out that hackers managed to gain access to user’s usernames, email addresses, hashed passwords with random salt value, and public-facing “About Me” profile information. While most of the information was already available online anyway, users have been encouraged to change their passwords for accounts on other websites if they used the same password for their NVIDIA forum account.
Users are also warned not to provide any personal, financial or sensitive information in response to any email purporting to be sent by an NVIDIA employee or representative. All user passwords will be reset when the system comes back online, though it wasn’t mentioned when that was going to be.By Ubergizmo.

Microsoft’s Windows 8 will be coming out later this year, and not long after will be the next version of its popular productivity suite – Office (codenamed Office 15). Well, if you’re keen on finding out what improvements will be in this new iteration of Office, it looks like we’ll be able to find out next week. According to USA today’s sources, Microsoft will be officially unveiling Office 15 on Monday next week.
While Microsoft has released plenty of details about Windows 8, they’ve been pretty tight lipped about Office so we don’t really know what’s in store.

Stay tuned next week for more details if the rumor turns out to be true. What would you like to see in Office 15?By Ubergizmo.
