Meet the Panasonic DMC-CM1 cameraphone. Inside is a massive image sensor on par with top-tier pocket cameras, yet the whole package is still rather svelte. With the DMC-CM1 Panasonic is returning to the smartphone market in an important way.
Two years ago Panasonic pulled the plug on its smartphones following disappointing sales of the Eluga handsets. Quite frankly, those handsets were not novel enough to sell in the crowded smartphone market. The just-announced DMC-CM1 plays nicely to Panasonic’s strengths as a leader in digital photography.

Amazing. Who would have thought a simple game using building blocks would be worth so much! ... I wonder if Lego will sue Microsoft now, haha ;)
"Microsoft has bought Mojang, the Swedish firm behind the popular video game Minecraft, for $2.5bn (£1.5bn). The title, which has sold over 54 million copies, allows players to build structures with retro Lego-style blocks, as well as explore a large map and battle others. The deal was announced by Xbox chief Phil Spencer.
Mojang, whose three founders will leave the company, assured fans that "everything is going to be OK". Some analysts have speculated the deal is designed to attract more users to Microsoft's Windows Phone devices. The acquisition comes a year after Microsoft bought the Finnish mobile phone firm Nokia."

I have seen a couple of the DimasTech bench tables in the past during overclocking contests and presented on a various computer enthusiast forums. However, I have not had the chance to take a closer look at these simple looking but helpful computer chassis. Many regular computer users probably will not be interested in a bench table but all enthusiasts and overclockers find it very handy. There are also users who wish to expose their brand new and often expensive computer hardware, not hiding it in a more standard computer case. For all of those users, DimasTech has designed a full line of the bench/test tables.
Due to kindness of DimasTech we are able to present one of the latest series of the bench table simply called Easy V3.0 which comes in a full ATX size.
