Windows 8 build smuggled onto Web, looks familiar

A preliminary build of Microsoft’s Windows 8 desktop operating system has made its way onto the web. Available via illegal download, the software does not seem to have a look and feel all that different from its predecessor — Windows 7. The software bears the build number 7850 and is, in all likelihood, far from what we’ll see when officially released. Regardless: if you’re curious, and would like to have a look for yourself, hit the jump. There are several additional images waiting for you. More →

Nikon D3s is packing heat, 102,400 ISO to be exact

nikon-d3s

Today Nikon announced the much-rumored upgrade to it’s D3 SLR camera, cleverly named, the D3s. The D3s is a 12.1-megapixel beast with dual compact flash cards and a standard 12,800 ISO, which can be expanded up to the equivalent of 102,400 ISO. You can use all those ISOs for still images or 24-fps, 1280 x 720 video. That’s only 720p, so unfortunately you won’t be taking any HD 1080p movies on this camera, something Nikon doesn’t seem to care about. An improved battery will allow over 4,000 shots on a single charge and the twin compact flash slots can be used to create an on the fly backup of your main card or to shoot in RAW and JPEG simultaneously. Now that is sexy. Check out the press release for all the dirty details.
