It looks as though the rumor mills were correct, Samsung was indeed working on an Android-powered camera, culminating in the Samsung Galaxy Camera (glad to see them keep things short and sweet in terms of the naming convention, unlike the Nikon Coolpix S800c where folks who do not follow the news won’t even know that it is Android-powered), with the Galaxy name being retained to indicate that it runs on the Android operating system. Carrying the tagline, “Camera, Reborn”, the Samsung Galaxy Camera puts to shame some of the newer smartphones as it packs the latest Android 4.1 Jelly Bean operating system, while delivering Wi-Fi connectivity. We have a photo gallery of the Galaxy Camera’s announcement and on-stage action right after the break. (more…)By Ubergizmo. Related articles: Samsung Unpacked, packed, Samsung ATIV S announced,

Yesterday, we looked at the possibility of the ‘ATIV‘ name being used for devices from Samsung that ran on the Windows Phone 8 platform, and here we are today with the official word that Samsung had just introduced their first Windows Phone 8 device, calling it the Samsung ATIV S. This will (hopefully) be the first of many other Windows Phone 8-powered hardware, where Samsung claims it is “a superphone that?s equal parts powerhouse and head turner.” Do you think that they are correct? On the outside, you see an extremely slim 8.7mm brushed aluminum chassis that encases a generous 4.8? HD Super AMOLED display which is backed by Corning Gorilla Glass 2 for that added bit of toughness.
Underneath the hood, you will find a 1.5GHz dual-core processor, 1GB RAM, an 8-megapixel autofocus camera at the back and a 1.9-megapixel camera up in front – making us think that this could be the Galaxy Note 2 just for a moment. Available in 16GB or 32GB capacities, you can further expand on that thanks to a microSD memory card slot. To make sure the Samsung ATIV S can last throughout the working day, it is equipped with a 2300mAh battery that should last the distance for the average user, although power users would still do well to carry their charger around.By Ubergizmo.

How far have we come since the invention of the telephone (which was obviously preceded by other kinds of long distance communication tools such as smoke signals and messenger pigeons), and fast forward to today, we are able to keep in touch with folks from halfway across the world in different time zones, at the touch of a button. Skype, the VoIP software of choice for millions of people around the world, has just turned 9 today, and where they are now (after being purchased by Microsoft in October last year) is certainly heads and shoulders above what was originally conceived way back in 2003.
How has the use of Skype impacted you in the past 9 years when it came to communication with your family and friends, near and far alike?
