Gadget alert!

Been experimenting this week with something called the Sony Bloggie (pictured), which I have on loan for 14 days. Exciting stuff for a gadget boy like me!



Since my much-loved but rather dated Panasonic Lumix camera went kaput a week or so ago, I've found myself missing many potentially great pictures (mostly family stuff, inevitably) and am now making up for it with this handy little fella. For a limited time only...

It's essentially a pocket-sized camcorder/camera which makes uploading video to YouTube (or whatever tickles your fancy) very easy indeed. IT MUST be easy - even I've done it intuitively without recourse to the handbook. It could make blogs a lot more interesting (I know...wouldn't be difficult with mine...)

A visitor to the office showed me a variation on the theme and it got me thinking about the possibilities for both home and work use in this multimedia age. Plus it was such a cool little gadget! Expect to see some deeply experimental videos to follow! The high definition video is pretty appealing and there's also a setting which allows you to take web-standard footage for faster upload.

There's a 360-degree lens attachment that I'm very excited about. Might have to ask my daughter how that goes on. My three-year-old son is very, very interested in this little gadget too...



Super-busy work week (is there any other kind?) which is starting to make me anticipate some summer holiday time off. Still trying to pull together a three-week trip to Beijing, having booked the time off, sorted passports for little people and set visa and vaccination processes in motion. Whether it's Beijing or Balintore, I'll be happy enough to spend some time with the tiddlers.

Your son is getting so big! I just want to kiss those gorgeous cheeks. :)

Have fun with the toy!

thanks:-) Those cheeks were indeed made for kissing! The toy's been fun. I'd be lost without a camera close by.

Matchgirl's aching for the new iPhone. I'll send a review if she goes ahead with the purchase.

I'll take a wild guess that she'll get it before me...

She will if it involves spending money rather than snaffling freebies...
