Technology keeps getting smaller and cheaper, especially that of HD cameras and video equipment.  What a great merging of technology when you can take an RC airplane and put a virtually feather light 720p camera on board to record video.  That's exactly what I've done with my Twinstar II Brushless Lipo RC airplane, in this case the 808 #18 720p keychain HD camera, which is known as the Car Keys Micro Camera.  The 808 has been around for a few years, but they have become more refined and the price is hard to beat.  Check out the video at the end that demonstrates this gem of a camera.  It also has video out support.

This is a review/guide I did of this fantastic RC Aircraft, the Multiplex Twinstar II electric I had built several years ago.  Its a fantastic model to fly, made of foam and fairly indestructible.  The standard kit comes with regular electric motors and nicad batteries.  For my build I upped things a bit and went brushless and Lipo (lithium polymer).  I also have some newer FPV keychain HD 720p video which you can view by clicking here.

With the growing interest in space tourism we now have another option that could be ready within a few years.  Another form of space tourism is coming that uses a giant helium balloon and would offer stunning views of the horizon and dark of space.  This is the promise of a Spanish company called Zero 2 Infinity.

Tired of cutting your lawn yourself?  Then why not let the robotic mower from Bosch save you some time.  We have had automated mowers for some time, but Bosch claims this one is more automated than the competition.

At the WWDC conference Apple made some announcements related to iOS 6.0.  Apple has stated there will 200 changes in store for iOS 6.  Among the big changes include the new 3D maps, FaceTime over cellular and Mail enhancements.  The developer beta of iOS 6 will be immediately available to download with the final release coming in the fall, most likely at the same time as the iPhone 5.  The iPhone 3GS, 4, 4S along with iPad 2/3 and iPod Touch (4th gen and later) will be able to use the upgrade.

At the Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) in San Francisco today, Apple has announced the new Retina display MacBook Pro along with updates to the 13 and 15-inch MacBook Pros.

The new MacBook Pro is just 0.71 inches thick and weighs 4.46 lbs, one of the lightest ever made.  It also includes the new Retina display found in many iPhones and the new iPad.  The new MacBook Pro Retina comes in a 15.4 inch screen with 2800 x 1800 resolution in an IPS panel.  Apple claims a 75% reduction in glare and reflections.  The display is now integrated into the unibody allowed apple to remove the cover glass.

In this article I will outline my experiences with an in-place upgrade of my corporate Windows 7 x64 Ultimate machine to that of Windows 8 Release Preview (RP).  Granted this is a release preview and not the RTM (Release to Manufacturing), but most of the underlying bits should remain the same in the end in a few months.  I have a large range of software installed on this test machine, which should be useful for compatibility testing.  I've included a compatibility chart to organize my findings.  In addition, this setup is a multi-monitor setup of 4 screens over the two video cards to make things more interesting.  This is a work in progress, as I will likely update this article over time.
