Yesterday I wrote about the Sony’s new Ultra Compact Digital Camcoder HDR-TG5V and seems like Sanyo is already there to fight the competition by launching 4 new digital cameras. Sony has unveiled their 2009 Xacti Dual Camera lineup, including VPC-FH1, VPC-WH1, VPC-TH1, and VPC-CG10. All these new Xacti does both video recording and photo taking.

The Xacti VPC-FH1

The Xacti VPC-FH1 comes with a 8 Megapixel CMOS sensor and offers full HD dual Camcoder recording. It can capture footage at 1920x1080p at 60fps and also features a 16X zoom and Image Stabilizer. The Dual Camera Xacti FH1 packs high performance, cutting edge technology into a small, stylish, easy to use camera.

Like other regular camcorders the display flips out from the camera and rotates up to 285 degrees on an axis that allows you to take great video or still images from otherwise-difficult-to-view positions, proving to be especially useful when shooting in confined spaces.

What’s Thanksgiving without turkey with the whole family or maybe the grand parade in New York, but for this list we also give you travel ideas veering a bit off the traditional. This is perfect for families who want to spend the Thanksgiving on a tropical island, a ski resort, go for water adventures or may be explore desert landscapes. Going non-traditional may also be a good way to pay tribute to the pilgrim pioneers. We also cannot skip the favourite destinations for Thanksgiving. They’re part of the unwritten requirement so children will know about the holiday beyond the turkeys. It is like passing on the tradition to the next generation.

Thousands of people each year get the urge to take a cruise to some exotic destination and satisfy their desire for experiencing new cultures in unadulterated luxury. The cruise industry wants your custom and there are so many offers out there geared to every taste that it becomes a major headache to select the right one for you.

Price is not always the governing factor when selecting a cruise. It may be the sense of adventure that appeals to you on an Alaskan cruise or the appreciation of a different culture that a Mediterranean cruise offers that appeals to you. It may just be that you have had a good experience on a cruise before with a particular cruise line or on a particular vessel. Make sure the cruise will give you a new experience at a reasonable price.

In Amsterdam you can anything, from pleasure to tulips. There are numerous malls, some very old like De Bijenlorf, Maison de Bonneterie or Metz & Co (1740), and butiques and, except the gays, all the city is very shiny. All the fun lays in the Red Light District neighbourhood – the namber wanz Amsterdam attraction.

If you’re looking for bitches (too bad 90% of them are ex males) that’s the place. Sex shopping is very well developed in Amsterdam, it’s behind the tulip industry tough. These beautifull flowers are always associated with Holland, but they’re origins are in the Middle Orient. A visit to the flower market it’s well worth it…after Red Light District. Then you can go and buy some good stuff from the cafeterias, marijuana I say. For clothes, best deals are at Zara, Bershka, Espirit, Diesel or H&M.

RFID Chip on Checked-in Bags

If you’ve lost your luggage at the airport before, you will definitely love the idea of this new chip. The RFID chip of radio-frequency identification chip is also installed on all checked-in bags at the McCarran Airport. This way, baggage can be tracked down much like cell phones could be located as long as they’re turned on.

Aside from this locator feature, RFID chips allow for easy scanning. It would be very hard for the crew to put a particular baggage on the wrong route with these barcodes and sensors. Double-checking also helps the crew track misplaced luggage.
