A Taiwanese research institute has developed a new memory card, the miCard (Multiple Interface card) designed to work on both MMC slots such as those used in digital cameras, mobile phones as well as any device with a USB (Universal Serial Bus) plug, which are common on PCs.
This makes transferring pictures, songs and other data between gadgets and PCs easier. The card is expected to be available globally starting from the third quarter of 2007. So far 12 Taiwanese companies have signed on to manufacture the miCard, according to its inventors The Industrial Technology Research Institute. Officials expect saving around US$40 million as manufacturers will not have to pay royalties to make miCards.

Found this weird telescope thingy on Brando.com. It’s supposed to give you a pretty good 6x optical zoom and probably does a pretty good job as a tool for spying on neighbors.
It’s “compatible” with Nokia N70, N72, N73, 5300, 6230, 6230i, 6233, 6600, 6630, 6680, 6681 and 7610. The official function is of course too ‘Overcome the short coming of camera cellphone that can only near-sighted, it also makes distant view for you at the moment’.

I found these pretty neat accessories on e-bay, behold the “Crystal clear hard case”! As you can see, this is a protective see through cover for the N95. It’s made of hard plastic which you can pop in place. I haven’t tried it myself, but hopefully it will make life a little easier for all you people trying to avoid scratches on your devices.
Note: I’m in no way associated with the retailer advertised on these images.

Recently I read about these protective silicone gloves for different devices. They seem to work pretty good and people seem pretty happy about them. For now, the only place I’ve seen them for sale is on e-bay. Be careful when ordering products from e-bay since there have been many fraud attempts, especially with Nokia N95 products.

Steve at AAS has written part 4 of their super extensive reviews on the Nokia N95. The guys at AAS write really good reviews, infact the best I’ve found. This time Steve focus on the camera recorder of the N95.
