(at The Gadgeteer) Wacom Bamboo Tablets Wacom has just revamped its Bamboo tablet lineup, replacing the current Touch, Pen and Pen & Touch models with the Bamboos Connect, Capture and Create. These new names will take a little more explaining than the old ones. The entry level Connect ($80) is a pen-only model, a little larger than an iPad, and with a smaller bezel and thinner body than the previous Bamboos. The Capture is the same size, but adds multitouch and the option to go wireless. This is done with an add-on set of dongles (one for the tablet, one for the computer) and a battery pack. This pack costs another $40 on the $100 price of the Capture. The $200 Create is essentially a bigger version of the Capture, with multi-touch, wireless option and a large 8.5 x 5.4-inch touch area (and a 13.8 x 8.2-inch). (at Wired)

It zooms to allow clear distant views such as watching a football game, attending a concert, touring in some places, examining some wild animals etc. Adopting a novel optical design, the telescope avoids contortion of images effectively. It makes the super wide angle, the larger luminous flux, the higher visual acuteness, good for color reduction, which makes the high quality of photography. (at 7 Gadgets) Yamaha PDX-11 iPod Dock Yamaha makes some pretty awesome audio equipment, even if it often ranges on the pricey side. So there's reason to be excited for their new PDX-11 iPod dock, especially considering the four-inch woofer, distinctive looks and $100 pricetag. In addition to the woofer, which handles the lows and mids, the two-way speaker also packs a tweeter to handle high notes. And while some may scoff at the single speaker, Yamaha's approach here is nice. Instead of using stereo sound as a marketing gimmick (no iPod dock can really provide the true stereo effect), Yamaha seems intent on making one speaker sound good.
