Flip Mino jumps on the High Definition

Flip Mino HD
Known as the Flip Mino HD, this is touted to be the smallest high definition camcorder in the world. It is extremely easy on your pockets, tipping the scales at a mere 3oz., making it a snap for you to carry this just about anywhere you travel, capturing those precious moments in high resolution video for future viewing. The price tag also won’t eat into your kids’ college savings, retailing for $229.99 a pop. The Flip Mino HD has the ability to record up to an hour’s worth of HD video, and with the bundled Flip Video’s new FlipShare software, you are able to turn just about any computer into a platform for drag-and-drop video organizing, editing and sharing on YouTube, MySpace, AOL Video or via email.

Features of the Flip Mino HD include :-

* Resolution: HD 720p
* 4GB internal memory
* 1.5″ anti-glare LCD display
* Internal lithium ion battery
* One-touch recording with 2x digital zoom
* Touch-sensitive buttons for recording, playback, fast forward, rewind, pause and delete

Sounds like a decent Christmas present to bring home this holiday season, eh? I would have preferred to see a memory card slot thrown in for expansion options – 4GB of internal memory just isn’t enough especially when you plan to record an event that is longer than a single hour.

The LED Micro Task Light

The LED Micro Task Light
The light has four LED lights which would give you a decent amount of lighting. The light also rotates 360 degrees to make it easier to work. To keep it powered you’ll need three AAA batteries. Apparently the light doesn’t produce any heat either so the batteries will last longer. The light can last up to 100,000 hours. You can pick it up on Solutions for $12. So it would be fairly affordable, plus you can save yourself a battery run and add an extra $2 and they’ll throw in two batteries.

Asus R50A finally arrives

They weren't kidding when they said it would be above $500, but for the price you'll be running Windows Vista on a handheld with a 1.33GHz Intel Atom processor, a gig of RAM, a 32GB SSD hard drive, a 5.6'' screen at 1024 x 600, three USB ports, a microSD slot, a wireless keyboard, and an external DVD reader / writer. Connectivity options include 802.11 b / g WiFi, Bluetooth, and 3G. These specs aren't all that different from what you'd find in a netbook (save for the SSD), except you're paying more than twice as much and you get to look like you're playing games on a GP2X while you're using it on the train. Maybe it's supposed to be a status symbol?
