Hey tested, is there anyone out there who can help? My Samsung S3 is starting to have a fair bit of hitching, it's not unusable but it's getting pretty noticable. What should I do?
I'm due to be a dad in the next couple of months and my wife has been throwing hints for a camcorder to record the sprog once it's born (not the birth! Noooo!). Anyway I've been thinking on this:
A camcorder seems a bit pointless, they're a one use device in a multi-device world. They don't seem to offer anything more than her iphone 4s or my galaxy S3 (both 1080p @ 30fps) does, except if you're looking at something like the gopro or some other specialised camera, which isn't really necessary for baby's first steps, maybe baby's first motocross....
I'm also thinking the convenience factor, a phone tends to be to hand, while a camcorder wouldn't always be around.
I was considering a sony NEX camera, a good camera makes sense and I can see one of those paired up with a phone for recording may be a good fit. Or maybe the phone is 'good enough'
I'm not an expert in these things, can anyone offer any thoughts?
Just been reading there's plans for a new nexus 7 at $150, if that becomes possible i'd buy one of them. The only thing that's drawing me to the ipad mini is the size and aspect ratio. That price though, there's nothing between these devices anymore
Yep unreadable and just a really poor experience
It depends, SD cards are designed with specific purposes in mind. They may not be designed to be accessed as regularly as a hard drive so may wear out quicker. That's why I wouldn't recommend for a main hard drive, as storage for media though should be fine.
Wow @will has lost a fair bit of weight, is this the weight loss testing thing he was doing, the appendicitis or (my fear) the result of raising a child and not having time to eat???
Also good call on the kempt beard, I have shown the wife the beard and told her that will be my fate(face) once our baby is born. She was not happy
