Sony Updates QX lens cameras with new features and HD video mode
Sony has announced a new firmware update is available for both if its QX lens cameras. The updates are available for the QX 100 and the QX 10 digital cameras. The cameras look like a lens alone and are designed to attach to a smartphone. They can be used without a smartphone as well.
The QX 100 digital camera gets an update that adds a shutter priority mode that allows the user to control the shutter speed. The QX 100 also gets an expanded ISO range of ISO 160-12800. The camera also gets the ability to shoot in full HD mode for video when recording in MP4 format.
The QX 10 gets similar updates with a new 1920 x 1080 30p MP4 video recording mode. The camera also gets an expanded ISO range of ISO100-3200.
Sony writes, "Sony continues to update and improve the connectivity of the QX interface to meet users’ demands for a more seamless experience. The QX Lens-style cameras now offer the ability to transition between taking your shot and accessing the preview function without interrupting the Wi-Fi connection, and the time it takes to establish a Wi-Fi connection has been shortened by half."
A new accessory will be available in March that allows the cameras to be connected to tablets. The accessory is the SPA-TA1 and supports devices between 75mm and 20mm high.

Apple's first wearable will not ship until 2015
If true, Apple, as it has always been, must be very confident about its timing. After all, it will be the company's new product from an entirely different category, and people will most likely be patient about it.
About the Geek Mind
The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
