Plus El Reg’s comment ‘sin bin’ and what iPhone, Android and BlackBerry switchers thought of Windows Phone
A quick burst of 7 links for you to chew over, as picked by the Technology team
“Kinect hacks have been used for many a grand feat, from a tool that helps the blind navigate more easily to hands-free questing in World of Warcraft and virtual cat brushing. The Mirracle system projects a CT image onto the user’s reflection to give the illusion of seeing inside one’s own body. So why not integrate the powers of Microsoft Kinect with a mirror to teach such subjects as basic anatomy?
Maybe they could make it into a revision game for the Xbox 360?
We never knew that El Reg had a moderation team. The policy there looks pretty much exactly like the one here, except that new commenters get put in a “might sin” bin before being allowed to play with the big kids.
No, not 2012. This is from June 2011:
I finally had someone explain to me why Android will gain huge marketshare this year in the large-screen tablet wars (aka where iPad is dominant). It took USA’s #1 TV manufacturer, Vizio, to do it. Why didn’t Google have them on stage to show this off a few weeks back at Google IO?
Vizio didn’t figure in Android tablet sales for 2011 in any research we have seen.
This may not come as a surprise. But it goes back a long way.
Three people who usually use those bigger (in terms of sales) platforms try a week on Windows Phones devices. As it’s the US, none is a Nokia one. The common response from the iOS and Android user: the apps don’t match up. The BlackBerry user seemed impressed, though.

The latest update adds functionality:
Videographers were promised from the introduction of FCP X that in the near future we would once again be able to edit a multi-camera project, and Apple has delivered. With up to 64 active camera angles available, FCP X may actually shake the industry to its core with that level of multicam facility in the basic editing package. This means that you can actively edit more cameras than I have ever heard of being used for any multicam project, with the possible exception of the Super Bowl or, perhaps the bullet-time for The Matrix.
However, what’s completely mystifying is why Apple released a not-good-enough initial version in June 2011, rather than waiting until it had everything it needed. It has lost clients – will this really get them back? (Thanks @rquick for the link.)
