    The fragrance industry has been stagnant for a billion dollar industry and that continually introduce new products to attract more people to buy. Perfumes, whose real name is expensive and every buyer tries, a place that to find the best perfume prices offers.

    It’s sad to say that the walmart plan is half the cost of regular cell plans here in Canada.

    In Canada its still $60 a month for 2000 mins, 3GB data, and voicemail etc…even with all the competitors we have here. So I am jealous of how cheap it is there.

    The new Nokia phones are very cool. I just wish they *would* make a stronger presence here in the U.S. I see almost no Nokia phones in my long day *anywhere*. With the E7 though, picture taking is often done in business on job sites where equipment surveys are performed. I do this myself for the bidding process to determine customer needs based on *currently* installed equipment and for calculating space requirements for the *new* equipment I’m proposing. It’s much easier at times to use a camera phone, than carrying a full or even compact sized camera into a factory or office building. If companies distribute phones with cameras to their employees, the management should have an option to disable the camera option if not needed.

    I really love the new Wal-Mart phone idea as a lot of people cannot afford contract plans. Being a 30 year telecom man, it still boggles my mind how the phone companies keep coming up with all these new 11 digit phone numbers.

    I am in the market for a new backup camera, and the Canon G12 might just fit the bill, epically for the HDR features.

    Good show today, I’m glad you’re still adding the bloopers and outtakes, really makes me smile… “B”

      I second that!

      Plenty of interesting stuff for Micro 4/3rds has been announced leading up to and during the Photokina photography convention in Cologne, Germany.

      I guess a look at the mirrorless format in general would be more fitting, since M4/3 isn’t the only player in the game.
