    Expanding the Nikon 1 system: Accessories and concepts

    By 22 September 2011

    Launching a compact system camera without a system to support it would be disastrous. Fortunately, Nikon has announced a full run of accessories and lenses for their new Nikon 1 V1 and Nikon 1 J1 compact system cameras, or as they like to put it Advanced...

    Electric fan heaters are two a dozen, cheap as chips, and pretty much resigned to the shelves of DIY shops around the globe. They are an "in case of emergency" or "it’s too bloody cold" purchase. Not so, says Sir James Dyson. Dyson and his engineers...

    The Nikon 1 J1 doesn’t offer as many features as its sibling camera the Nikon 1 V1, but as a result it is a mite more compact. These two cameras make up a new category for Nikon under the name "Nikon 1" and we managed to get our hands on both cameras...

    By 20 September 2011

    The HTC Rhyme is something of a delicate matter, as it is HTC's first phone that is said to have been designed with a female audience in mind. Yet it comes in dull colours and looks quite a lot like every other HTC handset we’ve seen so far. Sure, it’s...
