Olympus Slaps An ‘S’ To The E-PL1 Micro Four Thirds To Improve It

Not much to see here, readers. The Olympus E-PL1 just got an “S” tagged to its name, which brings some improvements. First, an ISO bump from 3200 to ISO6400, a new BLS-5 battery, new BLS-5 battery, a new weight of 454 grams (342 grams for body) and when bundled with a 112 gram M.ZUIKO DIGITAL 14-42mm F3.5-5.6 II lens — the weight remains the same, along with an SDHC card. It’ll be out in April in red (I’ll take red, thanks), white, or black (with silver lenses) for ¥60,000 ($723) or ¥80,000 ($964) with a M. ZUIKO DIGITAL ED 40-150mm F4-5.6 lens. Via: Impress

Toshiba Satellite L655-S5078RD Review

First thing first: if you don’t want a laptop with more than a half-dozen letters and numbers to its name, you can stop reading this now. For those who would like a 15.6-inch, 16:9 aspect ratio and 1366×768 resolution screen, a Core i5 processor, 4GB of DDR3, and a 500GB hard rive with DVD LabelFlash technology player, then please continue. And please read throughly. And cautiously (you can tell this isn’t going well, is it?).

Samsung Galaxy Tab Coming To AT&T For $650, US Cellular $399 to $599

It is indeed so. The Galaxy Tab is an overpriced Android tablet. The last version besides the unannounced Wi-Fi version is the AT&T model, which launches on the 21st for $650 and has $15 and $25 pay-as-you-go data plans at 250MB and 2GB, respectively. On the flipside, US Cellular will launch their version of the Tab with $14.99 for 200MB or $54.99 for 5GB with tethering enabled data plans, and $399 on-contract or $599 off for the Galaxy Tab itself. Hit past the cut for the press releases.

Facebook Makes Its ‘Minimal Messaging’ Program Official

That’s right. There’s GMail, YMail, and FMail (not exactly). It’s a “modern messaging product” as according to Mark Zuckerberg, and it handles Facebook IMs, messages, SMS, and email, but it’s not email. It’ll still have FB email addresses, but it’s still not an email client. In fact, it’s a sort of super messaging program that is also minimal.

Essentially it’s messaging with email. And it’s not revolutionary, and it doesn’t allows for IMAP forwarding (like let’s say, to Gmail) bt Facebook states it’s coming. So sending emails from Facebook is more like sending messages to email addresses, and therefore Fmail is Fail Mail, because it doesn’t exist. In the meantime, email with your Facebook launches in the next few weeks; it’ll roll out much like the New Twitter did.
