HTC Droid Incredible 2 In (Official?) Press Shots And Verizon Branding

It’s the Droid Incredible 2  with Verizon branding and the famous “red eye”, folks, full of the looks from its European counterpart, but with the Verizon branding that makes it a full-fledged Droid, as seen in what seems to be an official press shot seen above, which was leaked by the sources of PocketNow.

Nikon Announces The New D5100, Capable Of Many Awesome Things

The Nikon D5100 With Lens KitIt’s a new D-Series edition DSLR by Nikon, and this time it’s called the D5100. Set to be released in “mid-April” for $799.95 or $899.95 with a kit lens (seen above) the D5100 contains the following awesome specs, which remain to be seen if they actually deliver, as is the case with all new DSLRs:

16.2 megapixel APS-C sensor
3″ 640×480 (920k dot) swiveling LCD
ISO 100-6400 (expandable to 25600)
HD video recording: [email protected]/30p
In-camera effects on movies (nice!)

Since I’m still waiting on Nikon for a certain D3100 to play around with, I may just have to adjust my sights on the newer, more awesomesauce (on paper) D5100. It’s solid competition for the Canon Rebel T3i, no doubt. Press release after the flying jump.

Artsy Editor Aims To Simplify & Redesign The Default WordPress Writing UI

As any humble (and then some) blogger might know, WordPress is quite awesome, however the writing experience and interface requires many steps (at least 3-5) to attach a simple image or add a link to a selection of letters. Stephen Ou, creator of iTunes Instant (remember?) has recently begun creating a plugin which would replace the current interface and implement his own, dubbed Artsy Editor. An early build screenshot is seen above. While there is no solid launch date, an official site has recently launched and offers a 50% discount for those that sign-up via email when Artsy Editor launches.
