Should we really buy ipad 3?

If you see the ipad3 and ipad2 together, at a glance, you cannot see or recognize the differences, but actually they have some.

I put the ipad3 and ipad2 together and I saw that the new one is actually thinner and lighter, actually in more detail (50g and thicker 0.6mm). The second item that got my attention was the screen which helps people that want to read a book or watch movies, and definitely better quality picture in gaming.The new ipad3 is faster, and also they say that there are some differences in some standard applications.

Impartiality in the news

What is the criteria applied by journalists and editors in news organizations to determine whether or not to publish particular items of news? In commercial news the consensus of “Value” is used to determine whether an item is likely to interest a potential audience. However, there are some other  sources of value, including the judgment of intrinsic significance or the pull or pressure of influential interests other than those of the audience. Therefore, the Informative character of the television and press has been affected by contemporary social and economical changes.

Newspapers and broadcasting corporations have their own particular way to inform people. Based on their own policies and agendas – and sometimes regulated by economical and political interests- those are the sources of  media which produce news that audiences consume.

Identity Crisis! – Nokia 808 PureView

Am I a camera or a phone? Well these days people are calling these mega phones with mega mega pixel cameras, “camera phones”. Just to get the statistics out of the way, this camera phone has an incredible 41 megapixel camera with auto focus, face detection, geo tagging, self timer, digital zoom, Carl Zeis lens, image oversampling, lossless zoom and a 1280 or 720 pixels HD video recording capability.

I don’t want to mention the phone side of things, although  it is quite impressive with great connectivity and a Nokia bred Symbian OS, (to each their own), but instead I want to “focus” on the incredible camera. Continue reading

Zebra Patterns on your camcorder controls

“Many of the semi pro and all of the pro camcorders use the zebra pattern to determine when parts of a scene is being understood as overexposed. It is used as an exposure guide. These are black & white diagonal lines which appear in the viewfinder area. This will usually appear on light sources, the sky or white objects. You will have to take measures to stop the excess light from overexposing your shot, (unless that is what you are going for). This could include reducing the light or adjusting the exposure settings of your camera. So go ahead and turn this function on, it helps!”
