I am one of those who do not believe that one must have a DSLR in order to be able to take good pictures. A compact digital camera that can easily fit in my pocket is good enough for me. It is not because I can't afford to buy a DSLR, it is just that I'd rather buy a very powerful laptop than buy a DSLR (I don't make my living out of photography, I am not a photographer; I make my living out of the internet). But I like taking pictures, capturing moments, that is why I like digital cameras. There's one baby that I would like to buy, it's the Canon PowerShot S95 digital camera. Here are the reasons why I want this camera:

10.0 Megapixel sensor combined with the DIGIC 4 Image Processor create Canon's HS SYSTEM for improved low light performance and better image quality.

Shoot beautiful 720p HD video in stereo sound and play back on an HDTV via the HDMI output.

A bright f/2.0 lens, great for shooting portrait photography in low light conditions or using a shallow depth-of-field for great images with beautiful soft backgrounds.

A control ring for intuitive manual control, built for the way the serious photographer has always accessed exposure control.

Full range of shooting and recording modes including RAW + JPEG for the ultimate creative control.

A 3.8x Optical Zoom with Optical Image Stabilizer, plus a 28mm Wide-Angle Lens gets you close to your subjects as well as capture more in your frame.

Utilizes Canon's Hybrid IS to compensate for angular and shift camera shake during close-up shooting.

If the above doesn't convince you, here's a video from that speaks tons about the Canon PowerShot S95 digital camera.

Not all laptops are created equal. Some laptops are made for people who work while on the move while other laptops are designed for people who see laptops as a gadget that allows them to have entertainment anywhere, anytime. The HP Pavilion is a series of laptops and notebooks designed especially for people who use laptops as their main source of canned entertainment. Take a look at the HP Pavilion DV7-1240US Notebook, if you are always on the go and could not leave your favorite music and videos behind, this lappy is the one for you. With 2.1 GHz AMD Turion X2 RM-72 dual-core processor and 4 GB RAM, it has enough power to make your music and video come to life with you where ever you go. And check out the widescreen 17-inch LCD display, which is given life by ATI Radeon HD 3200 Graphics (up to 1918 MB total). You can also store a lot of videos and music in its 320 GB Serial ATA (SATA) hard drive.

Of course it has LightScribe DVD±RW drive which allows you to laser-etch silkscreen quality text and images on your CDs and DVDs.

My five-year-old son enjoys playing Crush the Castle, now he'll be happy to know that Armor Games has released Crush the Castle 2, a newer and more exciting version of the game. There are more projectiles to choose from now, more kinds of castles to be crushed, plus a storyline that would surely add to the games attractiveness. Here is the description of the game from Armor Games:

Even after crushing and capturing Arcturia, the Redvonian King was still longing for more castles to crush. Rumor has it that King Blutias has built sturdier castles in his cluster of islands known as Crushtania the Redvonian King wants them crushed. The King has sent you, his Seige Master, and Halgrim his finest mason, to assemble the greatest minds in the land to destroy Blutias's empire.
