If you were to go back a year, you’d see a whole lot of rage directed towards the Facebook timeline redesign. If you were to ask today, many Facebook users wouldn’t even remember the controversy. However, seems like Facebook didn’t like its own redesign, so its tweaking personal pages yet again: select users, when they log in, will see a new personal page with the wall presented in a single column format. The wall again becomes a list, and they get the left side. Open graph actions, like all those apps you approved and then never used again, or the Spotify songs you recently listened (basically all the low-value detrius) gets the right hand side. I think it looks nice! (more…)By Ubergizmo. Related articles: Slapping someone for looking at Facebook is officially the best job, Facebook has new "Expecting a Baby" Timeline event,

We briefly got our hands on the Samsung Galaxy Camera at the Samsung event last week in New York. When the Android powered camera was announced at IFA we were pleased to see that our prediction finally came true: many devices should be connected, especially cameras, and Android is currently the best available software to get the job done. Check the video demo above.

You know what they say, if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is. It seems, however, that you are able to take advantage of a loophole in the official Windows Upgrade Offer site to purchase Windows 8 Pro for just $15, never mind you purchased a Windows 7 PC before June 2nd of this year, while informing Microsoft otherwise. This has been tried and tested by some who have said that it works – basically, anyone is able to pick up Windows 8 at Microsoft?s promotional price, where it was originally meant for late Windows 7 adopters only.
Regardless of when you purchased your PC, just inform Microsoft that you bought a Windows 7 PC within the past two months. Should you select a date that is close to June 2nd, you will be prompted for the current Windows 7 key, so choose somewhere nearer to October and you won?t be prompted. The rest of the details can be found in the source link, so if you want to have a clear conscience, skip it, otherwise check it out. No idea on whether Microsoft will close this loophole though, but they have been duly informed.By Ubergizmo.

If you figure out that your 8-megapixel camera on your smartphone could perform even better, you are correct – too bad that assumption will only come true in the future should phone manufacturers fall upon the OmniVision OV8835 8-megapixel image sensor to be included in their upcoming offerings. Constructed on improved OmniBSI-2 pixel architecture, the OmniVision OV8835 8-megapixel image sensor will allow one to capture full resolution 8-megapixel photography at 30 FPS and shoot 1080p/30 HD video with electronic image stabilization.
Since it delivers pin-to-pin compatibility with the previous generation OV8830 image sensor, it should be a simple matter of incorporating these new image sensors into the same circuit board that carry the OV8830 image sensor. It is said that the latest offering delivers a 20% improvement in low-light performance and a 25% improvement in full-well capacity. We can’t wait to see the performance of this new image sensor in upcoming smartphones. Volume production of the OmniVision OV8835 8-megapixel image sensor is expected to begin sometime before the year is over, so the earliest you will see it in action would be in 2013.By Ubergizmo.
