SONY ANNOUNCES BEST GO-PRO YET

There’ve been plenty of pretenders to the Go-Pro action-camera throne – we’ve even mentioned one previously that we think took a pretty good swipe at the crown http://ebuzz.ie/say-hello-to-htcs-re-camera/ – but with Sony putting their mighty technical clout behind it, this could be the one that the Go-Pro lovers should take the most seriously.

Aptly named the 4K Action Camera, Sony’s new device shoots 4K (obviously) at 30fps, but it can be tinkered with to record 1080p at 120fs, as well as 720p at 240fps, both of which can then be rewatched in glorious slo-mo. The lens is equipped with a lovely 170 degree wide-angle view, while the built-in mic comes with wind and noise reduction.

The only issue? Currently priced at £359 (around €469), compared to the standard edition of the latest Go-Pro which comes in around £100 cheaper, will Sony have priced themselves out of the market? Only time will tell.

Does Blackberry’s open letter have a return address?

Tomorrow, Blackberry will release a letter to media outletss worldwide. When I got news of this tonight, I stumbled mentally for a moment. I thought it reminiscent of the "There is life after Apple" Chiat/Day letter from Steve Jobs in the Wall Street Journal 25 years ago. For a minute I allowed techno-romance to gnaw at me, but only for a minute. Tomorrow's open missal from Blackberry reminds me more of a fake letter that appeared in Chinese newspaper, The Southern Metropolis Daily a couple of months ago, and then found it's way around China via the micro-blogging Weibo.

NASA Game Changing 3D Printing success really matters

Last night I tweeted a link to the Press Release from NASA regarding their success with  testing a rocket engine injector made through additive manufacturing, or as we say these days,  3D printing. What surprised me was the reaction I got via re-Tweets, messages and people just saying 'wow!'. I think what caught people's attention was the potential highlighted by the success in NASA's test, the potential for manufacturing and for business.

Social Media: quality always tops quantity

In recent years I have had the privilege to speak at a number of different events on Social Media. Typically the area of greatest interest has always been Facebook. The same question always pops up during the Q&A part - “I don’t have a budget for Facebook, how do I get to 100,000 fans?” To be fair, there is not one answer to this question for every industry but I will try to give you an answer that should set you on the right path.
