Is LG's Latest Gadget a Camera Or a Phone? - http://gizmodo.com/5684124...
The camera phone is destined for Japan where it'll be sold by the DoCoMo carrier in January. With all the styling of a retro compact, it also has a 12.1MP sensor with ISO range up to 3200, and while the Pentax 1:3.6-5.5 lens is only capable of a 3x optical zoom, it can shoot video in 720p and do geotagging thanks to the phone's GPS. There's also Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and 3G connections. - Thomas Amberg

tehran times : Facebook ‘friendship’ tool may cause some squirming - http://www.tehrantimes.com/index_V...
Facebook has a way of taking the innocuous and turning it into the problematic, and its new “friendship” tool may fit that category. It allows users to convert public information to pages that shine a spotlight on the relationships between two people -- and it's not clear whether both have to agree to the match-up. Advertisers, on the other hand, are salivating at the possibilities. - Thomas Amberg

Arduino Halloween Candy Dispenser - http://www.adafruit.com/blog...
This year my Halloween project is the Automatic Halloween Candy Dispenser® triggered by TextforTreat®, CallforTreat® (powered by Twilio)and @TweetforTreat® technologies. Of course it can also be triggered from a Big Red push button, but where is the fun in that? When trick-or-treaters show up at my house they can text, call, or tweet a code displayed on an LCD screen to get their Halloween candy. They can also push the Big Red button. Once the candy request is made a few “special” effects are triggered by X10 modules. A low laying fog machine is activated and lights turn on while the candy shoots down from my front deck on the second floor. - Thomas Amberg
