Samsung has introduced its first curved TV with 55-inch OLED-panel. Samsung and LG are the only TV makers in the world. Kim Hyunsuk, the executive vice president of Samsung’s TV division, said the company is optimistic about demand for the high-end TV. “OLED is about picture quality,” Kim told reporters. “We are sure that we realized the perfect picture quality.”
Firstly such device had been presented at the beginning of the year though, the commercial version has got some changes, mainly it concerns the design of new TV.
Now, the new product will be available in Korea only and cost approximately $13 000. However we can expect that Samsung Tcurved TV maybe will sell abroad almost in the next month, thoigh Korean company did not specify yet the date and countries where curved device will be appeared. The had promised to launch TV devices in 2012 but delayed the launch to this year.
The Lensbaby has provided super-strong, adhesive-backed stainless steel rings around the phone’s lens, where the magnets located on the ends of the lens would then allow it to be attached as well as removed from your iPhone without breaking a sweat. Thanks to a magnet located on both sides of the lens, shutterbugs can use other magnetic mobile phone accessory lenses too, including wide angle, macro, telephoto, polarizing filters, the works, on their Sweet Spot Lens to alter their focal length.
The Sweet Spot Lens is the first Lensbaby offering for smartphones and consists of a small anodized aluminum body lens barrel, which attaches over a camera lens with magnets and an adhesive-backed stainless steel ring. Inside there are a series of optics which give users the ability to shoot with the signature dreamy Lensbaby look, and the lens gives a focal length equivalent of 17 mm on most phones.
Because the Sweet Spot Lens has magnets on both ends, it can also be used in conjunction with other magnetic mobile lenses or filters. This will be good news for dedicated phone-photographers who already have fish-eye, telephoto, macro or polarizing attachments for their smartphone and want to maximize their in-camera creative options.
The app can also be used to lock a focus point, apply filters and use features including exposure lock, spot and evaluative metering. There’s also the ability to move the sweet spot of focus around the frame while composing the image. However, it’s not quite like using a Lensbaby on a DSLR. Here you’re essentially using a live cropping tool, and dragging the crop to move the sweet spot around the image.
DSLR and compact system camera users who desire the analog effect have turned to Lensbaby, the maker of interchangeable art lenses that create a soft focus effect that gives photos a unique look. The company is now bringing its “sweet spot” focus to the masses, with the new Sweet Spot Lens for iPhone (LM-10), its first lens made for mobile devices. The magnetically attached accessory now allows iPhone photographers to capture images with depth of field – a point of sharp focus surrounded by gradually increasing blur – with hardware, rather than a software filter.
When defining the term image quality there are several qualifiers that go into the mix. Among them are tonality, contrast, brightness, and dynamic range, which is the degree of detail one can detect in the deepest shadows and brightest highlights. And then you have sharpness, which might be the trickiest to define.
‘”Is it sharp?” might just be the number-one question people ask when shopping for lenses. After all, if you’re going to be taking pictures with the camera you worked long and hard to purchase, you want to be assured the lens you’re contemplating to buy will perform as advertised and deliver pictures you’ll want to share with others.

By this point we’re all extremely familiar with the world of apps – those myriad applications which allow us to unlock all manner of uses for our smartphones and tablets. A select few – generally very well marketed – apps dominate a huge percentage of the column inches in the technology journalism world, and we think that’s a great tragedy.
We can’t imagine life without Angry Birds, it’s true, but there’s so much else out there on the app market that demands your attention and could even change the way you live.
Here are five of our favourites which we think you need to know about:
1. Wordly – Trust a writer to pick an app like Wordly as their number 1… Wordly is a fantastically fun game which pits the player’s lexicon against either their friends or ‘bots’, which include virtual incarnations of articulate figures of the past such as William Shakespeare and Cleopatra. Highly enjoyable, a great mental workout and above all, a chance for linguaphiles to show off.
2. Sunrise – If Wordly sounds like a waste of time to you, maybe you’ll prefer Sunrise, an app designed to pull together all the digital loose ends of your life and clarify your schedule. Sunrise combines dates from your Facebook, Google and LinkedIn calendars to create one master calendar, obviating the need to check each one individually. Sunrise also features map data and attendee lists for events, so you know exactly what to expect wherever you go!
3. SpeedQuizzing – When smartphones first started appearing a few years ago, many believed this could spell the end of the line for good, old fashion pub quizzing – the new devices made it extremely easy to cheat by simply looking up the answers to questions on Google.
Ironically, smartphones now seem to be injecting a new lease of life into the quizzing pastime, in the form of SpeedQuizzing. This app allows teams to use a smartphone or tablet as a buzzer to let the quizmaster know they’ve figured out the answer. Beautifully simple and innovative. You can get all your speed quizzing questions answered at their site.
4. PeakFinder – If you ever find yourself in a notably mountainous area, look up PeakFinder and see if they’ve got the region covered. This clever app allows you to view the names and details of the mountain peaks rising right in front of your screen.
5. Bowel Mover Pro – The app that logs your bowel movements! It’s real! An essential purchase.
