The 3D revolution continues apace with the news that if you own a Sony camera or Samsung camcorder, you may already own a three-dimensional snapper or shooter without even realizing it.
The only proper dual-lensed 3D stills camera currently on the market is the Fujifilm FinePix Real 3D W1. But existing Sony and Samsung models will soon benefit from post-processing that will give an extra dimension to 2D snaps and video after they've been taken, courtesy of Samsung TVs and Nvidia software.

AT&T looks like it is ready to be taken seriously when it comes to Android. A recent string of leaks indicate that a rather powerful Samsung handset is right around the corner, ready to battle the likes of the Droid Incredible.

Maybe it's a throwback to our caveman days, when our ancestors had to fight for survival, or maybe it is because modern technology doesn't always jibe with our instincts. In any event, at least when faced with an induction stovetop, one doesn't need to jump in with both feet when just one will do.

Dishes may migrate from table to sink to dishwasher at a glacier's pace, but in the end, they do get cleaned. That's the easy part. The stove unfortunately is usually another matter entirely.
The Samsung FER300 Electric Range offers the modern kitchen the convenience necessary to not only streamline the evening meal but also the clean-up afterward. Featuring a four-element ceramic glass cooktop, spills and spots are easily wiped clean. Inside, a … Read more
Whether you go for an entry-level Blu-ray player or a more expensive midrange model mostly comes down to whether you need one feature: built-in Wi-Fi. Samsung's BD-C5500 lacks built-in Wi-Fi (although it can be added with an $80 USB dongle), but comes in about at $65 cheaper than the step-up BD-C6500 and still offers up the same excellent image quality.
The BD-C5500 also features Samsung Apps, the company's expandable platform for streaming media and other Internet services like Twitter. Though it may not achieve the same popularity as Apple's App Store, the platform is already well-stocked with … Read more
