Softmodded Wii + USB Loader GX



The Story
Friends told me the New Super Mario Bros for Wii is really fun. I dusted off my Wii console and got the latest softmod + USB Loader GX installed. I was surprised by the fancy user interface and would like to share with you guys. However, I am not going to show you the details of how to get the softmod done here since there is a chance of getting your Wii bricked (stop functioning).

p.s. New Super Mario Bros for Wii is really fun!!!

The Story
The guys of the Dell Linux division have wowed the community by building and releasing their own revision of Chromium OS tailored for the Dell Mini 10v. After seeing Engadget running Chrome OS on a Vostro system, they tried fiddling with the build themselves to get it up and running on a Dell Mini 10v and succeeded. This OS relies 100% on the cloud, local storage is just used to speed up the system, everything is store in Google Docs, Picase, Gmail...

The Chrome OS build for the Dell Mini 10v can be downloaded here and Instructron from here.

The Story
My wife sent me a link today for a Casio Point and Shoot camera event in Taiwan, its basically promoting the camera’s “Makeup Function”, which of course means to make the girls look like they have great makeup on in every photo. According to the product description, it uses the facial recognition function to make the skin look smoother and can soften the shadows caused by sunlight.

It’s a little irritating to hear her raving about a little P&S after I just spent a grip on the Canon 7D as her early Christmas gift. However, she did point out one undeniable fact…

Canon 7D Unboxing + 8fps Mirror Demo



The Story
Finally got the Canon 7D on hand before the holiday. A very short unboxing video to share since this is not something really new. I did add a 8 frame per second mirror flipping demo at the end per friend's request.

Comments
After hands on for a while, I feel it has come with improved video recording functions compared to 5D Mark II. Since 7D is still in short supply and some sellers are trying to mark up higher than MSRP, You can check the following link for stock status.

7D Body Only for $1699, 7D Body with 28-135 Kit Lens for $1899.
