This is so awesome. A camera drone that lives on your wrist... the future of wearable technology is amazing.
Earlier this year, Intel kicked off its Make it Wearable challenge, a mission to take wearable technology and do things with it that haven't yet been done -- that, maybe, no one had even thought of...

I think I'll have one for Christmas. Always wanted a decent keyboard for a tablet.

So here is my biggest gripe about the iPhone and Apple didn't fix it this time round either. I know Megapixels are not everything but I think the day of 8mp phone cameras are done. For me 13-16mp is a ideal spot for low light image quality and enough detail or even a bit to spare when you need to crop an image.

Story
Tagline
Founder & Editor of the now former PhotoComment Magazine. Today I am mostly a Mobile & Mirrorless camera shooter. Also a Product Manager for Sony's Alpha cameras in South Africa.
Introduction
Born, raised and living in Johannesburg, South Africa. Photography somehow got into my blood as a kid and I have been addicted ever since. Founded PhotoComment as a personal photography blog that grew into a magazine which sadly closed at the start of 2014. I have owned over thirty cameras (lost count of the lenses) from almost all of the big brands since 1998.

Today I mostly shoot with my mobile phone and also an advocate of mirrorless or CSC (Compact System Cameras) like the Sony NEX, Samsung NX and Olympus PEN cameras. I even tend to edit and post my images these days via a smartphone or tablet, usually running Android.

My particular camera of choice - mirrorless or conventional DSLR - for the past five years has been Sony's Alpha and NEX range. As of April 2014 I am the Product Manager for these self same products at Sony South Africa.

Kids play area and brilliant food make this place a winner. We need more quality restaurants that cater or children. Only so much "taste for life" you can eat in a life time for those who know the tag line for what feels like the only other restaurant which targets family meals.
