Last year I was at the launch of the Nikon 1 camera, and although I asked several times to review it I never got to the top of the list. Now however Nikon have just launched the Nikon 1 v1 which comes with two lenses.[...]

The world of digital cameras is an interesting one, and it was just slightly more than one year ago when Nikon made their first foray into the mirrorless digital camera market with a couple of 1 System cameras, aptly called the Nikon V1 and Nikon J1. Today, we have the Nikon V1?s successor revealed, where the Nikon 1 V2 will continue where its predecessor left off, and obviously it will come with better hardware and performance figures right off the bat. For starters, there the V2 will feature a 1200fps slow motion capture mode, a 3? LCD display that is located on the back, a high-resolution electronic viewfinder, as well as the ability to record videos in 1080/30p and 1080/60i.
You know that the Nikon 1 V2 will ooze with class as it comes in only black or white shades, where your stills are ably captured using the upgraded 14.2-megapixel CMOS sensor, touting an ISO range of 160-6,400. Not only that, Nikon has thrown in a new Expeed 3A image processor alongside in Nikon’s Advance Hybrid AF so that you can achieve higher speed shooting without missing a beat. Fancy shooting up to 60 frames non-stop using fixed focus? Then the Nikon 1 V2 is right up your alley. [Press Release]By Ubergizmo.

Most, if not all, of the first generation robot vacuum cleaners came in only one shape – it was circular in nature, and they generally pitter pattered around the home while making short work of dust bunnies. It then dawned upon the folks over at LG that a square shape would do a much better job at cleaning corners compared to a circle, resulting in the LG Hom-Bot robotic vacuum cleaner. We do wonder, however, why not come up with a triangle shaped robot vacuum cleaner to boot? That would also be able to cover corners effectively, and would be handy for small one-bedroom apartments.Ubergizmo.

We are not too sure whether you have the cojones to step into this uniquely modified room by LG that has their new IPS monitors on the floor, combined in a three-by-three grid that depicts the elevator shaft right under where you are standing. It is definitely an eye opener, and LG?s public relations or marketing stunt will definitely win its fair share of fans and detractors alike. After all, not many people I know are happy enough with their life at the moment that they can die and leave this world without a care or concern for those remaining behind, and a shock like this would definitely rile some suits and skirts alike.
Do you think that the video above is real, or is it just a PR stunt? Whatever the case or verdict is, whoever steps into that room by accident might just walk out of it, needing to head home for a new pair of pants or a skirt because he or she soiled his/hers.By Ubergizmo.

Remember how earlier this month, both Huawei and ZTE were warned by the US Congressional Committee that they could not be trusted? Well, it seems that Chinese giant Huawei has taken a proactive step to win back some of the trust and to counter such a warning by offering unrestricted access to its software code, hoping that this move would be able to alleviate the public?s fears of the company being a security risk to the country. If we were to put it in layman?s terms, this would mean Huawei has lain on its back, allowing all and sundry to rub its belly.
John Lord, the chairman of the Australian arm of Huawei, did concede that Huawei did a rather poor job when it came to explaining its work, and will obviously need to take steps to change that. John Lord did suggest to start a national cyber security center that will independently evaluate all overseas-made technology products, in addition to making available their software code to all and sundry to pick apart at the seams if they want to. Do you think this is a true gesture of their sincerity?By Ubergizmo. Related articles: Huawei W1 press images leaked, Photos of Huawei's W1 Windows Phone 8 handset leaked,
If you happen to own the Nikon 1 digital camera, then you are in for a treat as Nikon has just announced an expansion to their lens range for the Nikon 1 under the 1 NIKKOR lens family. In fact, consumers will be on the receiving end of not one or two, but three new lenses. These new lenses are sure to expand your photo shooting horizon, where they will be the 32mm medium-telephoto fixed focal length lens with a fast maximum aperture of f/1.2 optimal for portraits exhibiting significant background blur; a vibration-reduction (VR) equipped 6.7-13mm f/3.5-5.6 ultra wide-angle zoom lens that is the first 1 NIKKOR lens to offer a 100° angle of view; and a compact and lightweight 10x zoom lens covering the 10-100mm range of focal lengths with maximum apertures of f/4-5.6, which makes this the ideal lens to tote around everywhere regardless of the situation.
So far, Nikon has remained mum on the actual release dates for these lenses, and neither do we know just how much of a premium will Nikon slap on them, but we do hope to be there to catch the news when it breaks and relay it to our readers!

It looks like cars are not exempt from this thing known as firmware updates now, as General Motors (GM) has announced that their 2013 Chevrolet Volt (approximately 4,000 of these Volt plug-in hybrids were affected) would be on the receiving end of a firmware upgrade, and this exercise can be done after you send your ride back to your dealer. According to Michelle Malcho, a spokeswoman for General Motors, who mentioned over a telephone interview, this firmware upgrade is a must have, just to make sure that your precious new Chevy Volt would not end up stalling when in motion.
The issue lay with a delayed-charging function, where this particular feature enabled owners to preselect a convenient time to charge the Volt?s batteries, for example, when the electrical rates are at their lowest. Choosing such an option, however, would see the software run amok and could result in the electric motor shutting off at a different time, even while you drive. Good thing the power steering and brakes are still working under such situations, but it is dangerous nonetheless.By Ubergizmo.

Times are not exactly the best economically speaking, and if you know that your mobile plan has a limited number of text messages that you are able to send each month, keeping track of them is not exactly the easiest thing to do, especially when you have your attention pulled towards other directions from time to time. Well, how about letting your smartphone keep track for you, at least in part to make sure it earns the smartphone name?
The Sony Xperia J is said to feature an SMS counter that can be activated under the Menu settings, where you are able to set the ceiling on just how many text messages you are able to send monthly. Definitely an advantage for those who have subscribed to restrictive mobile contracts, and parents, too, will be able to keep a lid on their kid?s texting habits. No idea on whether the SMS counter feature will be made available only on the Sony Xperia J, or will it soon be expanded to other devices in the Sony Xperia range. Guess only time will tell!By Ubergizmo. Related articles: Sony Xperia J does the "meh" dance, Sony Xperia J (ST26i) preview,
Photography can be said to be an extremely creative hobby, and it can take years to master even, but how about some moments in life where you cannot be trained to capture?

Hailing from the same land that spawned Ikea and Volvo, the Memoto intelligent micro-device will be able to capture all moments of your life in photo keyframes, where you can always return to these spontaneous shots at any point in time thanks to Memoto?s innovative web service and mobile application.Ubergizmo.
