Juice Up Your GMail

Did you know GMail has its own little app store? Ok, so it’s not really a store. And they aren’t called apps.

You’ll recall that it’ll be available from all four major US …

Two Minute Video: Visions of a 3D Point and Shoot Camera

The Finepix Real 3D W3 is Fujifilm’s second stab at a consumer-friendly point and shoot camera that takes 3D photos. While the first version met with less-than-favorable reviews last year, the W3 has slimmed down a bit and gotten a little easier to use so it should fare better this time around.
