Los lentes de tu cámara, más seguros que nunca

Put Your Lens in a Bomb Shelter with This Rugged Case

Beta Shells are made for those of you planning on taking your DSLR beyond Christmas dinner centerpiece shots—say, a mountain, or in the snow. Each is made from super-tough polymer, sealed against the weather, and padded with foam.

The rundown of the Beta Shell's specs are full of brawniness—steel screws, adhesive-blocked seams, neoprene and visco-elastic impact foam—the point being that you can drop this sucker, have it rained on, and maybe have a wolf take a chomp at it, and the delicate lens inside will stand a decent chance of survival. The cases come in two sizes—for lenses with max external diamaters of 68mm or 87mm.

And here, in case you are skeptical, is a video of a Beta Shell being run over by a truck.

The truck run-over test settles all doubts.

Intel Sandy Bridge se adelantan y asoman la cabeza por Malasia

La nueva generación de procesadores Intel en rango medio, está más cerca que nunca…

A pesar de que ya se ha confirmado que los nuevos Sandy Bridge de Intel harán su aparición oficial en el CES 2011, no es de extrañar que esta nueva generación de procesadores comience a mostrarse de in fraganti en algunos próximos equipos de los fabricantes. Lo que ya sí que desconcierta un poco más es que los encontremos acampando a sus anchas y con precio listo para venta en algún distribuidor, algo que ha ocurrido en Malasia. En dicho país, algunos distribuidores como Compuzone muestran ya un listado completo de modelos y costes, encontrando un Core i7 2600 a 3,4 GHz por 939 ringgits malasios (301 dólares/227 euros al cambio), un Core i5 2400 a 3,1 GHz por 609 RM (195 dólares/147 euros), o un Core i5 2300 a 2,8 por 585 RM (188 dólares/141 euros). Si quieres ver la lista completa y hacerte una idea de lo que está por venir, tienes más jugosas capturas en el enlace de lectura.
