Canon SELPHY ES40 is voice guided

has put out a lot of great printers, and the SELPHY ES40 looks like a one-of-a-kind with its “voice-guidance” system.  Canon has been pretty quiet on this, which is surprising, since this is a feature you’d think they’d want to tout. What we do know is that it has a 3.5-inch LCD display for previewing your images, and a scrollwheel to navigate through the interface.  It should retail for $149.99 when it is released, which coincidentally, they haven’t given any information on release date either.

Until then, keep talking to your printer as you normally do.  Maybe Canon will make a printer that will talk back to you.  Not looking forward to that.

Microsoft LifeCam Shoots in 720p HD

I realize that many shoot their own version of EdTV or The Truman Show with their webcams every day, what with this whole YouTube thing we keep hearing about. If that is you, then you may be interested in Microsoft’s LifeCam Cinema, which records in 720p HD at 30 frames per second.  The LifeCam Cinema also touts autofocus, 4x digital zoom, noise-canceling microphone, and ClearFrame for “smoother video” (whatever that is.)  It will support , and will be available for $80 on September 9th.

BenQ Goes Green with V2400 and V220 Eco


It’s good to know that major electronics makers have realized that it makes more sense to “go green” than to avoid it. BenQ, for example, has recently created two new V Series monitors that are meant to be eco-friendly. The 24-inch V2400 Eco and 21.5-inch V2200 Eco have dynamic contrast ratios of 5,000,000:1, and are LED-backlit 1080p panels. The monitors are made from 28 percent recycled plastic. They also reduce power by 30 percent in eco mode, and 36 percent overall. These displays are available in China in a week, but we expect them to arrive stateside soon enough.

AT&T RF Anywhere RemoteSome of you probably still have remote controls that still require you to point at the television, DVD player, DVR, or whatever else you have on your home entertainment center. If you happen to be an AT&T U-Verse customer, you can upgrade and use a remote that doesn’t require any pointing. The U-verse TV Point Anywhere RF remote that is right up your alley, as it sends remote commands over radio RF signal to the receiver.

Dell's New Monitors: E2010H, E2210H, and ST2310

is no stranger to the display business, which may explain why they have launched three new models, seemingly without letting anyone know about them.  The 22-inch E2210H and 20-inch E2010H are $199 and $139, respectfully.  The E2210H has a full HD resolution, while the E2010H sports 1600 x 900 pixels.  The other is the ST2310 (pictured) which is a widescreen with full HD 1920 x 1080 resolution, as well as DVI/VGA/HDMI inputs plus a 50,000:1 contrast ratio with a price point of $229.

Sony Party-shot

As if the announcement of the CyberShot DSC-WX1 and DSC-TX1 wasn’t enough for Sony today, they went and announced an interesting accessory for both aforementioned models with the Sony Party-shot.  The Party-shot is a dock for only those two models of digital cameras, and is designed to pan 360 degrees, and can tilt at up to a 24-degree angle for all sorts of random shots at your next par-tay.  It features face detection, and can adjust composition on those embarrassing, and possibly incriminating, photos on the fly.  It can run for up to 11 hours, and is powered by 2 AA batteries.  The Party-shot will be available in September for a price of $150.

MIMO 710-SI don’t know what it is about the Mimo 710-S, but I just have to like it.  Maybe it’s because I could use a little portable flip-shut monitor for my laptop, even if it is 7-inches with 800x480 resolution.  Maybe it is because it attaches to my laptop easily via USB.  Actually, I think I like pretty much everything about the Mimo 710-S, except the price, which is $140.

Sony PRS-300 and PRS-600

Last week we covered the imminent release of the Samsung SNE-50K e-book reader, so it seems reasonable for us to give as much information as we can about Sony’s two new e-readers: the PRS-300 and PRS-600, or as they are known to the masses, the Pocket and Touch editions. We’ve got full specs on each for you after the jump, but in a nutshell, both sport USB 2.0 connectivity, 512MB internal memory, Mac compatibility, and a lack of Wi-Fi. Remember, these are budget readers, but Sony says a Wi-Fi model is on the way soon. Both the Reader Pocket and PRS-600 will be available at the end of the month.

Logitech Unifying Receiver

I’m certain that many of you have the problem of too many devices and not enough USB ports.  Fortunately, is helping to solve this problem with their Unifying Receiver.  It is basically a wireless dongle that is designed to work with many new Logitech products including the K350/K340 wireless keyboard ($59.99/$49.99), as well as the Marathon Mouse M705/M505 ($69.99/$49.99).  Granted, Bluetooth could do the same thing, but those devices are a bit more expensive. We like where Logitech’s mind is at, so kudos to their forward thinking.
