Well, not a camera yet but a sensor, developed by Canon it’s an APS-H-size CMOS sensor with approximately 250 megapixels, the world’s highest pixel count for its size. The image out of these would measure 19,580 x 12,600 pixels.

So the government is rolling out FREE WiFi internet nationwide. It will probably be slow but should be enough for its purpose, that is, to stay updated with the latest news, social stuff and email. Assuming it’s full access. The WiFi will be installed in public places such as public schools, hospitals, airports, parks and rings. This affair will cost 1.5billion peso every year. The free WiFi service speed will be capped at 256 kilobits per second (ouch).

Unfortunately, MicroSD card slot has been removed as well.
It will be available globally starting April 10, 2015 in 32, 64 and 128GB versions.
As with every major brand out there, laptops that come with preinstalled operating system, bundle on top of it a host of bloatware, mostly useless, resource hog software with unknown purpose other than to annoy the buyers. Well, Lenovo decided to take it one step further, with Superfish, what an irony, fishy stuff indeed! (more…)
