65Bits Episode 125: Month of Smartphones 4 – Google Android Posted on: June 29, 2009 at 9:00 am Posted in: 65Bits,Podcasts

Hey there. Farinelli here. So um, the hamsters did in fact revolt again, nearly destroyed the episode but my l33t skills saved it somehow, and I’m basically left to apologize for the volume issues in this episode. You do not want to know what happened while I was working on this episode. And even if you do want to know, I don’t want to tell you. What I will tell you though, is that this week’s episode focuses on the last, newest, and debatably the most promising of the big 4 smartphone OSs – Google Android. Zi Yong from CodeAndroid joins us in sharing with you the pros (what, what cons?) of the Android system – what it has brought to the table, what companies have done, and what will be done with it in the near future. Be sure to catch the next episode as we do a grand wrap-up of what we have discussed in the past four weeks. Guess who’s back.

The Making of Gear65 #28 Posted on: June 25, 2009 at 12:05 pm Posted in: How Tos,VideoCasts

Ever wonder what we use to edit our weekly gadget show, and how we do it? Well, know you can find out! In ten minutes, I attempt (several times) to produce Episode #28 of Gear65, featuring the Canon 500D, to give you an idea of some of the tools and tricks that we use to edit Gear65.

I used to mock iMovie 08 when it first came out, but after I gave it a try, I realised how much it could help speed up our production process, and after iMovie 09 came out, to even do fancy stuff like Picture-in-Picture while we’re at it! Hope you learn something about iMovie 09, and realise that it’s actually a really powerful video editor if you know how to use it well.

65Bits Episode 123 : Month of SmartPhones 2 – iPhone Posted on: June 18, 2009 at 9:11 pm Posted in: 65Bits,Podcasts

Shit happens.. and it happened to us this week. The hamster which power our rendering farm went on strike over the weekend. Thus, had to render the episode manually this week… Hence, the precious discussions on the Month of SmartPhones, your nearly illegal byte of the week, a quick round of refresh with local and social networking news and ofcourse everything from that Apple keynote was delayed for a few days.. Really sorry for that..

-DK, Fari, Daniel, Hisham, Bernard and hamsters….

Gear65 #26 – Samsung i8910 HD (a.k.a Omnia HD) Posted on: June 11, 2009 at 3:01 am Posted in: Gear65,VideoCasts

The first non-Nokia device running on Series 60 S60 version 5 is what we’re taking a look today: The Samsung i8910 HD, more commonly known by its old name: the Omnia HD. For once, the HD actually stands for 720p HD, as in the ability to record 720p HD video, and not “higher definition than you”.

By the way, if you haven’t noticed, this is the second Gear65 episode this week! That’s right, two for the price of one!!
