• Review: BlackRapid RS-4

    A camera strap is just one of those things; you have to have the “right one” that works for you, or you’ll go crazy.

  • Gadget Spotter: Whodunnit Edition

    1) The folks at Flickr are going to freak when they see these photos. Because of the speed in which the questions were answered last week, this week’s screen caps are going to be a bit harder (Don’t worry, I’ll post some clues later).
