Sounds like an interesting tool. Now I just need something to nail… Badum-Tish
From The Page: A palm nailer is a magic hammer. Like a nail gun, you hook it up to an air compressor, but unlike a nail gun, it can be held in the palm of one hand. Its appearance doesn’t make its usage obvious, but this air tool pounds in nail after nail without hurting your hand at all. Just place a nail exactly where you want it. Press the opening on the nailer over the nail, and BAP! BAP! BAP! BAP! BAP! — compressed air drives a little hammer head inside the sleeve to gently pound in the nail. It takes about 10+ taps to get a nail all the way in, but in under a second.
Check out this awesome ceramic pinhole camera created by Steve Irvine.
“It is made of stoneware, fired to 1,300 degrees C. (2,350 F.) It has a matte black glaze on the inside. Overall, it measures h 22.5 x w 20 x 20.5 cm. on the outside. It’s designed to take a 4 x 5 inch piece of photo paper. The negative holder on the inside is made from three strips of black weather stripping.”
It’s a camera with a crunchy wooden shell and a gooey digital filling! I like the unique look, though I wish the camera looked less like a planchette. Either way it’d be pretty cool to see a larger SLR camera with a wood shell. I wonder how much more this weighs with the wood.
Anywho, Olympus just announced the camera today and they’re tightlipped about a release date. Source Via Gizmodo
The Leica D-Lux 3 has a 28-112 F2.8 Lens on it. It has a nice figure at 4.2 x 2.3 x 1.0 in, with a weight of 7.8 ounces with the li-ion battery.
Personally I love the classic look.. Plus you can operate the shutter speed and every other setting manually. You can also shoot in either JPEG or RAW. If it had an actual viewfinder this thing would be perfect.
Buckling under pressure Dell has partially given in to complaints by users. They are now offering their XPS line of computers with no bloatware and spyware installed. However Dell’s other line’s of consumer products appear to still be compromised.
