Podcast: EmbedSubscribe: iTunes | RSS Over the weekend, we found out that Kodak was shuttering their digital camera side of Kodak. That means both the digital cameras and their digital video cameras are being discontinued. Which means there will be no Zi12 PlayFul Dual as we were anticipating later this year. This is a sad day – The Kodak Zi8 and Zi10 were staples in my bag. Now, with no additional upgrades, I will have to hold on to my cameras a little closer. You can check out my video on the comparison between the Zi8 and Zi10. Get Kodak Zi8 at Amazon I saw many reporters and bloggers with these cameras. Mostly because they were easy ways to record interviews, then use the recordings to write their articles. Some of them did post to YouTube. We even saw some very interesting camera rigs with this camera. I...
Podcast: EmbedSubscribe: iTunes | RSSDuring the HP Discover event, Prith Banerjee came into the Bloggers Lounge to talk with the group and answer any questions we had. Prith talked about the new CEO Leo Apotheker and how that affects the Converged Infrastructure and Cloud initiatives. Some of the questions that were asked included what the plan for Memristor research is, what the staff at the Palm division is like and many more. Prith wanted to stress that even though there is a change in the administration, things will go forward as planned. Changes will be made only if technology makes it change.

I have been to Vegas before, but never really did the “tourist” thing. Bob, Greg and especially Aaron (who has never been to Vegas) wanted to walk around and see the sights. We started by going from Four Seasons, to the tram and to the monorail to about mid-point in Caesar’s Palace. We then walked back to Mandalay Bay, while seeing all the great images the strip had to offer. It was a fun time and even I got to see stuff I haven’t before.
