You can't just do something dangerous and insane these days without filming it for posterity.

Ion Air Pro 3: The Waterproofiest Naked Action Cam Around

Ion may not be the first name you think of when it comes to action cameras (or the second), but the company has been around for a few years.

Next-Generation Nvidia Ion Is a Dedicated GPU That Powers Up Netbooks…

Netbook graphics are inherently weak, especially with Intel's much-derided integrated graphics. But the new Nvidia Ion—like its predecessor—lets even a wimpy netbook Hulk out to play DX10 games and 1080p videos. The difference? It's a discrete graphics chip. » 3/02/10 12:00am 3/02/10 12:00am

Remainders - The Things We Didn't Post: Happy Birthday Photoshop Edition

In today's Remainders: a celebration. Photoshop turns 20 and reminds us why we love it with laser-eyed babies and an Earth with AT-ATs. We've also got possible iPad preorders, definite MobileMe and Chromium OS improvements, PMA bummers and more. » 2/19/10 6:59pm 2/19/10 6:59pm
