Polaroid to Make Digital Cams

Posted by Sheila Franklin Categories: Cameras, Corporate News,

PolaroidPolaroid has decided to go back to what it does best, instant printing cameras. The digital cam will have an on-board printer for 4x3-inch prints, their original image size. Amateur Photographer is holding a competition for the company to help design it by asking 6 questions, such as whether you think it should have an external battery for extended printing. The competitions ends August 31. We assume you have to be a real photobug for this one because as far as we could tell, the prize is knowing that you contributed.

SnagIt

SnagIt 9 works like your regular screen capture but it certainly is a lot easier. The software lets you grab a shot, store it in a media library, or turn it into a graphic. Then share by adding it to your document, presentation, etc. You can combine images by simple drag and drop. SnagIt includes arrow, callouts, and color fill, and more to tidy them up. TechSmith is offering their products at prices beginning at $49.95 or try it free for 30 days. Oddly enough, we had to use our own screen capture to grab an image of the box.

NHTSA Tests Illusional Speed Bumps

Posted by Sheila Franklin Categories: Science, Transportation,

Speed BumpsThe National Highway Traffic Safety Administration is testing a fake speed bump to see if drivers will slow down. The optical illusion looks like a 3-D pyramid when seen from a distance. The first experiment in Phoenix seemed to work until drivers realized that there were no barriers. This time the NHTSA will run a larger test in a Philadelphia residential area, hoping that they will reduce pedestrian accidents. The markers only cost $60.00 to $80.00 apiece as opposed to real speed bumps which can run $1,000.00 to $1,500.00. At least they are acting reasonably about the devices that they realize will probably have only the same effect as flashing lights.

iPhone 3G and iPhone OldSchool side-by-side

iPhone 3G vs iPhone

If you are tired of all the mockups that try to show the size differences between the and the original , we’ve finally got an image of the two phones, side-by-side. The main difference here is that you have a uniform color on the back of the phone, rather than the odd black bottom that we never really enjoyed on the original. Here’s what iLounge had to say:

The 0.48” depth is thicker than the touch (0.31?), 80GB classic (0.41?), and original iPhone (0.46?) but thinner than the 160GB classic (0.53?), and tapered at the sides for the appearance of thinness. At 4.7 ounces, it weighs more than iPod touch (4.2), but less than the iPod classic (4.9-5.7 oz.).

Anyhoo, expect a lot more of these come July 11th.
