This box caught my eye when one of the guys from the computer department was showing me how to do some of their web work.

I had to take a picture of it; not only is it already a relic of the digital age, the box features the World Trade Center towers.

The resolution is .26 megabytes. The output, according to the spec page is 320×240 dots. What would you even do with that? There’s no place for a memory stick, it just has 2 MB of internal flash memory. The swivel lens is pretty cool though.

It takes four AA batteries, and when you shake it, it makes a vicious rattle, so I don’t think I’ll be shooting with it any time soon.

Oh, and for a major laugh, check out the battery pack this guy rigged up for his. Be sure to scroll down and see how he wears it on his belt. Now imagine him running through an airport with his camera.

Top 10 HTC Desire Battery Life Increasing Tips [HD]

23

Here are my top 10 tips on making sure your HTC Desire/Nexus One battery lasts as long as possible. I can easily get a day and a half out of my Desire when applying these tips so hopefully you will be able to as well! Please comment or ask any questions below and please don’t forget to subscribe! 1) Use the Power Control Widget – the gives you quick access to all the power-draining features of your phone and allows you to turn them on and off at the press of a button. 2) Mobile Data Widget – Add this to one of your screens to enable you to turn the phone’s network data connection on and off. Keeping it off will drastically increase the life of your battery. Only turn it on if you are out of WiFi range and need to send/receive some data. Turning Mobile Data off does not effect being able to send/receive calls/texts. 3) On the Android Market, search for “2G 3G”. This free little widget allows you to jump to one of the settings screens on your phone with one click. From this place you can set your phone to work in just “2G” mode which increases the life of your battery. 4) Brightness – one of the obvious ones. The brighter your screen, the quicker your battery drains. You can use the Power Control widget to quickly switch between Low, Medium and High brightness levels. Keep it on Low to be most efficient. Medium is fine if you know you’ll be reunited with your charger at the end of the day and only use High brightness in very sunny places. 5) Live Wallpapers – As pretty as

Android Quick Tip Extend your Battery Life by Changing your Wi-Fi Sleep Policy

25

Generally speaking, you don’t need to leave your Wi-Fi turned on when your screen is turned off, and Android has a settings area where you can set your Wi-Fi sleep time accordingly. It’s buried pretty deep in the settings, so some people may not even know it exists. To make sure your Wi-Fi radio is set how you want it (to maximize battery life, or to maximize convenience), watch the video to see what you need to do.

How to Bring a dead rechargeable battery back to life

6

Problem: The battery in my R/C car wouldn’t charge. This can happen sometimes when NiMH and NiCad batteries go without use for long periods of time. Solution: Voltage Blast! Please use caution as batteries can SPLODE! Also, I have no idea if this works on lithium type batteries. There are no guarantees that this will work and this could cause damage to your… Everything. In this case I used an AC/DC adaptor to give a 4.8V 150mAh NiMH battery made for a Losi Micro T/B/DT Remote Control Car a Voltage Blast. It works almost like a defibrillator on a heart shocking the battery back to life. This poor video quality comes from the front facing camera on an iPad 2
