The tiniest computer!

Can you believe this is a fully functional PC?

It’s got an Atom Z530 1.6GHz CPU, 1GB RAM, 250GB HDD, 2 gigabit ethernet ports, wifi, etc. etc.

This tiny little amazing computer is called the fit-PC2i, and I just ordered one with Mint Linux on it. Whee!

The Colours, Children!

So despite these things being available for nearly three years in Europe and the US, Philips are going to make me order one all the way from the UK. “No plans to sell in Australia at this time,” they say. Booo! The people demand their trinkets:

I updated my phone this morning. Definitely snappier, snappier for sure.

Snappier.

Anyway, I took an HDR photo with the new-fangled HDR option. Here, have a look (click the photo for a bigger image, full 5MP resolution image is here)!

It can save a non-HDR copy as well, so you can say “ooh! aah! that’s so much sna^H^H^Hprettier!” (full 5MP resolution here)

Seems like it’ll be quite useful for those odd occasions where it’s really hard to get an evenly exposed photo.

Electric Butterfly!

This is too cool to be a mere shared Google Reader link. This mechanical butterfly in a jar is like one of those magnetically actuated aquaria, but amazingly realistic. Gaze upon its fluttering glory!
