Ostendo CRVD 43-Inch Curved Monitor

At this time of year, particularly, there is a whole world of gadgetry vying to catch your eye and empty your pocket, some worthy and some not. At a pricey $6,499, Ostendo's 'world's first curved desktop monitor' does, I do believe, fit into the former category. This 43-inch behemoth has a 90-degree field of vision which uniquely engages the peripheral vision to give you what is, apparently, "an unmatched immersive viewing experience." With its 2880 x 900 quad-DLP display, seamlessly curvaceous screen, compatability with existing operating systems and ability to open multiple applications at once, the CRVD claims to have the ability to up your productivity levels by 30%...or you can just put 3 together, as seen in the video below, and have the drive of your virtual life. (All work and no play an' all that.)

GAME PITCH: being as my virtual driving's as infinitely incompetent as my real driving (i.e. I'm not licensed to do this,) I'd like to suggest a Morgan/EA Games collaboration of a more sedate nature so that I may also get in on the triple screen action. Driving Miss Fifi; a potter about in the British country lanes featuring an appearance by the royal badassery that is Thomas's beyond awesome dad, Cornelius. However, Driving Miss Fifi would not be without a smattering of high-octane thrills as, depending on your social leanings, you'll have the option to knock over the odd pauper or startle the hunt horses to the ends of trampling their charge as they wimper something about affronts to their civil liberties. Interested parties may apply within.

MHS-PM1 HD Snap Camera From Sony

Calling all snap-happy web-lovers, this one's for you...

Sony's MHS-PM1 HD Snap Camera is not only the thing of compact, highly portable and aesthetically pleasing loveliness, but it's big on handy functionality, too. With the ability to shoot impressive 1080/30p HD footage for up to 25-minutes on one battery charge, the MHS-PM1, compatible with both Windows/Mac OS*1, is designed for quick and easy upload to personal computer folders or websites of your choice. Connectivity via the supplied USB cable will transfer the content directly to video sharing sites such as YouTube and Dailymotion, with the addition of a 'Sharemark' button to pre-select your favourites.

But if you have a preference for still photos, you won't be disappointed as it also features CMOS Sensor technology to produce crisp 5-megapixel pics. Add to that a 270-degree rotating swivel lens with 4x digital zoom that flips over for that increasingly popular pastime of snapping one's self at any given moment (handy if, like me, you're a huge Tumbr fan,) this palm-sized gadget is a must for fans and newcomers alike to the capture-and-share revolution.



Panasonic has announced the market introduction of the DMR-BS850 and DMR-BS750 Blu-ray Disc™ Recorders and the DMR-XS350 High-Definition Recorder / DVD Recorder (Standard Def Archiving). All three new models are compatible with freesat+, making it easy to view and capture high-image-quality digital satellite broadcasts.

In addition to storing all films and shows, they can be used to preserve your family films and photos on a Blu-Ray disc.  Therefore, in a bit of a fun twist, they’ve released some research that puts a definitive monetary value on the sort of family memories the recorders store. You are invited to calculate this value at the Panasonic HD Everything site at hdeverything.co.uk/mymemories.
