Canon PowerShot G10 (G9 as a preview)

This is coming out in October, but is a pretty big update. A reason to wait before buying a LX-3, I think. “Popphoto”:http://forums.dpreview.com/forums/read.asp?forum=1010&message=29122707 had the notice. The previous “G9”:http://www.dpreview.com/reviews/canong9/ did get very good reviews (it is 12MP vs. the 15MP in the new G10) * 14.7 megapixels (wow!) * 28-140mm 5x zoom * 3 inch […]

Zenphoto

OK, finally flopped Nextgen Gallery for ZenPhoto even though I can’t get the widget to work. But, let’s try integration. First, you should see a “Photos”:http://tongfamily.com/zenphoto button now at the top. You do need a password to see anything though 🙂 But to get it to actually integrate into the blog is the trick. First […]

Fax Services

Most people like me don’t have anything fancy. A fax machine at home (well really an all-in-one attached to a phone line where you unplug it most of the time for sending or receiving) and then at work a fax machine tied at the front desk. So if you were in the 21st century and […]

Ok, I’m looking for three phones…you should definitely check out Amazon. They have a $150 rebate on, it is amazing, main issue is that you can’t get family plans with them. Nextel. Need a replacement for my work phone. There are two choices Nextel i90c. This is the clamshell and is not color, but it […]
