One of the biggest annoyances and problems for Digital SLR photographers is that tiny, almost invisible bits of dust on the sensor can result in enormous amounts of time "de-dusting" the images after a shoot is over. While applications like Adobe Photoshop Lightroom have some automated tools to help with the removal of dust that is already on the image, what your mom told you holds true: an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. In this review, we look at the approaches taken by VisibleDust and Delkin Devices to help rid your sensor of dust.

I've been using a Wacom tablet for over 15 years, starting with their ADB-based ArtZ tablets. There have been other tablet entries into the market over the years, but none have stuck, and Wacom rules the roost. And for good reason - each iteration of the line offers more sensitivity, tilt, and options. But the ultimate tablet is the Wacom Cintiq 21UX tablet, which bonds a tablet to a high-quality LCD display.

If you have ever been hiking and wanted a tripod to stabilize your photos, but didn't want to lug along extra pounds of photo equipment, you haven't had much choice. The TrekPodand TrekPod Go look like well-constructed walking sticks, but the bottom section opens up James Bond-style to reveal a small tripod, and the top has a screw thread to match a camera base.

Anyone who has used a remote control with their iPod, know that they all have one thing in common: you can't actually see what you are controlling. Not so with the new Keyspan TuneView for iPod remote control and docking station. Attach the dock to your stereo and the video out to your TV, and insert your iPod, and turn on the TuneView, and you have the screen from your iPod on the TuneView's remote which has its own color LCD screen.

I race down a canyon with my speed being at least 70 mph, trying to stay on the road. My opponent crashes into me purposely, making me swerve. I hit him accidentally, driving off the road and into the canyon. My heart pounding, I step away from my keyboard, and get myself a Coke. Thankfully, I’m not really old enough for a driver's license, and I had only been playing EA's new racing game for the Mac, Need for Speed: Carbon.

In 1962 Olympic Decathlon Gold Medalist Bob Mathias founded a summer camp for boys in Kings Canyon, California, in the Sierra Nevada mountain range. In 1969 the camp added girls, and for almost 30 years it was a treasured memory of summer for generations of campers, counselors, and staff. How to bring together the people who made it so wonderful after all these years? Yahoo Groups and the Internet to the rescue! Recorded during a reunion at the site of the former Bob Mathias Sierra Boys Camp, Kings Canyon, California, September 2007 by Harris Fogel. Posted 12/18/2007 (22:02)

There are few things that electronics like less than water. Get most electronic equipment wet, and it's pretty much the end of life for that device. So, what to do if you crave your music when playing near water or bashing the slopes on a snowboard? What if you plan on taking your iPod, MacBook or laptop to places that would normally instantly void the warranty? We would recommend you start your journey toward water with a case from OtterBox. We tested a variety of their iPod cases as well as their laptop case, and found them pretty much indestructible.
