Advertising aside, the interface is fairly straightforward, and the online Help is … Read more

Ever since we heard about the Invisio Q7 bone conduction headset at CES 2008, we've looked forward to it finally coming to market. The headset promised a way to translate the vibration of the jaw to actual speech without the use of a microphone, thus eliminating noise. But a year had now gone by, and we had not seen any sign of it, leading us to believe it was vaporware.
Yet, it appears it may have been reincarnated as the Motorola Endeavor HX1. Motorola has mentioned that it was working with the Invisio folks to come up with a … Read more

Every round of releases from Panasonic's digital camera division gets more interesting. Case in point, the very compact 12-megapixel Lumix ZR1 features a 25-200mm-equivalent lens with an 8x zoom.
