Hands On with the Nexus 10
Right before Christmas my tablet, an Iconia A500 died (just a couple weeks after the warranty ran out of course) and I was faced with the task of choosing its replacement. The timing was great because the latest iPad was out,several new Android tabs were being released and Microsoft was just about to start shipping the Surface. All have some very compelling aspects and I like all three platforms, but as I already have had several android tablets and a lot of apps for that system, my focus and ultimate decision was towards the Nexus 10 from Google. Since there were plenty of 'First Looks', 'Quick Peeks' and such being written already, I wanted to spend some more time with it before actually evaluating it. This review is really my perspective on using the tablet, what that experience has been like and finally was it worth the money.

In the video world monitors are probably more critical than any everyday old computer monitor is. Serious photographers who play with Photoshop will know what I mean. Calibration is everything. Which leads me neatly to the BENQ GW2450 which landed on my desk today.
First Look: Parrot AR 2.0 Drone
Ostensibly, it is a ring around 3/4 metre across that is segmented into 4 internal circles each containing a rotor blade driven by a motor. A full charge lasts around 12 minutes and it can be controlled from an iPad, iPhone of Android App. Although this description sounds a bit rough, as the video and photos show, it is in fact very elegant in its design. And boy does it perform in the hands of a skilled operator. Spectacularly!
Corel VideoStudio Pro X5
While it is still fair to say that Corel has struggled in the video editing market, I suspect the latest carnation of VideoStudio Pro X5 will change all that. And oddly enough, I say this not because of any improvement over its standard video editing approach as this retains the 3 step approach that many programs of this type use - Capture, Edit, Share. No, not at all. This version has some truly ground breaking features.
