All the big camera manufacturers headed out to CP+ in Japan this week with something new to show. Fujifilm showcased the X-T1, Sony had the A6000, and Nikon had the slew of point-and-shoots that it unveiled last week. Canon and Sony joined Nikon in unveiling their own slates of new and updated point-and-shoots around the event. But while all three companies unveiled their cameras within a week of each other, their latest lineups have fairly different focuses.
Canon’s latest point-and-shoots are all fairly basic affairs. While Nikon and Sony’s new cameras both try their best to give compelling reasons to use one over a smartphone, three out of Canon’s five new PowerShot point-and-shoots just aim for affordability.
Sony’s cameras, on the other hand, each do a bit more to stand out. First, there’s a trio of cameras with large zoom ranges, the Cyber-shot HX400V, H400, and H300. The star of the show may be the H400, which is capable of zooming out to the equivalent of 1550mm. Though the more expensive HX400V doesn’t zoom as far — only to 1200mm — it has a newer processor and builds in Wi-Fi, NFC, GPS, and a higher-resolution display, making the camera far more accessible. The final in the trio, the H300, zooms out to just 875mm, but it’s also priced at $219.99 — not all that much above a far more basic point-and-shoot.

Dropbox has got a Modern UI dedicated for Windows 8 and Windows 8 RT app, just before Dropbox announcement storm from CES 2013 to hit.
The app is designed in the familiar Windows 8 manner, the app displays tiles of files and folders from your account. It’s nicely optimized for touch-operation too.
In its initial release, the app is very limited in its functionality. You can search your files using the Search charm or share them via the Share charm.
The app doesn’t support viewing the files that are locally synced on your PC. For that you’ll need to download the classic, non-Modern UI, Dropbox desktop application from the company’s website.
Head down to the Windows Store to download the free Dropbox app for Windows 8.
If you’ve found that Microsoft’s very own cloud storage solution SkyDrive doesn’t quite cut the mustard for you, worry no more as Dropbox for Windows RT and Windows 8 is already on its way. The Dropbox app for Windows RT and Windows 8 is ready and submitted to Microsoft for approval. Lots of people rely on the Dropbox service instead on the Microsoft’s own SkyDrive and it’s certainly going to boost the productivity of the RT slates.
The Windows 8 users had a Dropbox app since its launch (the Desktop one), but the RT owners had nothing but the web client until now. Well, the Modern app should pop up in the Store any moment now.
Dropbox, the current top dog in cloud storage solutions, is celebrating its 100 millionth account by offering free cloud storage to people who share their Dropbox story.
If yours is one of the top ten favorite stories, you will get 100 GB of cloud storage for life. If it makes it in the top one hundred favorites, then you get a consolation prize of 10 GB for life.
So what is a Dropbox story? A high school football team in Utah uses it for studying game films and scouting reports. An elementary school music class uses it to share their music with students in other countries.
We mostly use it for cat pictures and stuff.
