Webcams and MP3 players

Just a very quick post - have you noted how lame webcams still are? Even now there are a huge number of USB 1 models with under 0.1 megapixels, and the best thing that you can buy under 50$ has a 640x480 sensor (that means 0.3 megapixels) ! And going around 150 US$ will NOT get you better resolution, just eventually autofocus ... and in that price range I believe there are some 1-2 megapixel real cameras !!!

And a quick note on the new MP3 players announced this year - the only two that seem interesting so far are the SanDisk nano killer (I like the large screen and the 6 GB vesion, also the hard-to-scratch liquid metal reference, even if it is more a hit on the too-easy-to-scratch nano) and the Samsung shuffle killer :) (I love the small 2 GB version with screen, OGG support and an USB stick!) Also in the "strong nano competitor" group is the Cowon iAudio 6 which will probably be on the market earlier than the two killers above :)

Soo funny :))

And yet soo out of touch - only those people that can hardly use a computer will pay attention to iTunes ... and real geeks will NOT use it even on the real iPods :))

I still can't figure out what the big deal is with Itunes. Apart from complete idiot mode, it no easier to use than any other music software on the market (Window's media player excepted, perhaps). I have an ipod but still use Creative to rip music. AAC is for morons.
