Jennifer Love Hewitt: Evening Wear for Breakfast

Jennifer Love Hewitt

But…why?

What are the Palin Baby Photos Worth?

DescriptionTripp Easton Mitchell Johnston, first grandbaby for Governor (and former VIP candidate) , entered the world on December 28, 2008. Now, let’s find out just how much clout this youngster has with the tabloids, shall we?

Palin, who emerged from nowhere at the GOP convention and rose to instant stardom, has managed to stay on the radar even though we’re several weeks away from November. Everyone seems interested in the Alaska Governor’s next TV project (we’re all quite sure there will be one), but for now the politician is working on a different role: Grandma.

A role which, if you’re Sarah Palin, may not be without its huge monetary perks. Technically, the money will likely go to daughter Bristol and her boyfriend Levi Johnston - but we all know who’s name is going to sell the cover shots.

The bidding war for the first photos of little Tripp has begun, and some sources are claiming the price started as high as $100,000. That’s more than some real celebrities get - and the number’s only getting higher from there. No price for the pics has been confirmed, but some sources estimate the photos are selling for more than $300,000 - truly, a staggering sum for a child that’s probably still wrinkled and hairless.

Record Your Voting Experience

A little nervous about voting? We won’t mention the term “hanging chad” (oops) but poll experts suggest that you not only bring your ID with you but take a picture of your ballot as well. Video the Vote goes one step further and suggests you record your experience to share with other citizen journalists, indy filmmakers, and media pros.

Novo Minoru 3D Webcam

Posted by Sheila Franklin Categories: Cameras, Misc. Tech, PC / Laptop,

Minoru 3D WebcamWith the Minoru (which means “reality”) Webcam from Novo and a pair of glasses, you can see in 3D via Skype, Microsoft Live Messenger and other IMs. It apparently also makes 3D images and videos that can then be uploaded to social sites such as YouTube, although those wanting to see it will need glasses, too. Arriving in December at a price of $100.00, we figure that this is a bit overpriced and overcomplicated.

Epsom Toyocom Develops Anti-Shake Technology

Posted by Sheila Franklin Categories: Cameras, Cell Phones,

Epson Toyocom DisplayPhotography 101 taught us the the faster the shutter speed, the less blur. But because most cell phone cameras cannot be adjusted, most images come out fuzzy at best. Epson Toyocom has addressed the issue with anti-shake technology. It predicts the amount of blur before the moment the shutter is released as opposed to current technology that measures it at release. Cost is expected to be lower because the microcontroller and sensor needed are less expensive than such technology as a dedicated optical system and a memory chip.

Snap & Lock

If you are a photobug but don’t have time to get to a computer, Johanna Schoemaker’s Snap & Lock is a viable alternative. The digital cam and photo viewer/docking system combine with reinforced cable and magnets keep them in their place. The camera features saving, transfer, viewing, and editing when attached and has a flip screen for protection when not in use. While the description doesn’t mention it, the prototype appears to be a touch screen for further simplification. Good job, Johanna!
