Nokia Has A Cyclist Saying ‘Things Are About To Change’, Refers To September 5th Media Event

Wait a minute here: no helmet? Whatever Nokia’s stance on safety might be, it sure doesn’t matte to them that their cyclist isn’t wearing one. More on topic however, is the simple fact that September is full of technology press events, including Nokia’s on the 5th. Perhaps a new Lumia smartphone with Windows Phone 8? There’s only so much a silly marketing video can tell.

Quikdraw Is The Next Innovative Kickstarter Project For Carrying Lenses

The first thing that came to mind when I saw this was “If Batman carrier a DSLR, this is how he’d carry all his lenses”. Well actually, Batman wasn’t really the first thing that came to mind, but that doesn’t matter.

The Quikdraw belt will allow its user to fasten DSLR lenses (either Canon or Nikon). And in case you were wondering how strong this belt and the Quikdraw locks are: the belt’s creator’s say that the belt can hold up to 20lbs of lenses, and the locks are made of aircraft aluminum and high strength precision molded plastic.

It sounds like a great idea and because of how the locks are made, theft isn’t really an option (you could also hit the assailant with a telephoto lens in case you have no self-defense skills). Backers can start at the $75 mark to get a Quikdraw; multiple are needed to hold multiple lenses on the belt.

The Verdict On Samsung Vs. Apple Is Here: Apple Wins

In the gripping conclusion to the long Apple vs. Samsung case, the technology giant Apple has won as according to a court jury and Judge Koh. What else is there to report on? There always is more. Apparently, this means that all nearly all recent Android-based Samsung devices in question have infringed upon the Apple scroll/”bounce back” patent, among two other Apple patents in question. Apple has won this trial.

Evernote And Moleskine Announce The Smart Notebook — And It’s Very Practical

Evernote and Moleskine are two different companies, yet are in the same business: one stores information in analog, the other digitally, in the cloud. Coming together marks a new product: the Evernote Smart Notebook. Starting at $24.95 for a smaller notebook (and $29.95 for a bigger one), you can take a picture of anything you’ve written in the notebook using the Evernote iOS app (other platforms should get this feature at a later date) and it will immediately be transcribed into a searchable, digital document you can use with your Evernote account.

Let that sink in for a second.

This is fantastic. It is seamless, doesn’t deprive the human race of calligraphy, yet keeps our recording skills moving forward, continuously. And, they’re pretty notebooks. You can pre-order one now, but they will only be ready by October 1st, the date Evernote starts shipping the Smart Notebooks.
