D-Premier, what a joke, if your willing to pay $16,000.00 for an audio amplifier I will sell you a $500 coffee mug that will make your coffee taste the best ever, and I will give you all the specs. you need, such as the height, the bottom diameter, the top diameter to the nearest thousandth, and the purity of the cup material. Hopefully this will convince you it is worth $500 dollars.

The Lytro camera is interesting, but I don't really understand why they just don't focus the entire photo. It seems an extra unnecessary post process to arbitrarily choose a focal point for every single photo when the entire picture could be focused. No thanks. The one other interesting thing to me is the thermostat. Personally, I will probably buy one myself eventually. People spend extra money all the time on mundane house items like faucets simply because they like the style. The thermostat looks cool, and the smart functionality is just a bonus as far as I'm concerned. The Apple guys get it right again.

Hi-fi folks are generally obsessed with internal/external appearance. seems a low power one here. You can get a $15 amp from china, the difference? you might never feel it.

Not aware of their immediate plans but from what I see on their site, it must be a fun place to work for: http://www.lytro.com/jobs

The Lytro Light Field camera is amazing. I will buy it when it gets cheaper, since presently I am unemployed. Have the folks at Lytro demo'd the camera to Law enforcement? This could become the standard camera for crime scene investigation.

I always find Sony's approach to consumer devices refreshing. This updated review, which we don't endorse, has some markedly interesting points: http://www.pcworld.com/article/239253/sony_tablet_s_review_a_tablet_that_goes_beyond_basics.html

No, I didn't know that, but I'll take your word for it. You're right, it seems to detract from the entire "competition" that it's entirely done on paper. On the other hand, think of the logistical problems of judging real-world objects and software.

Sony's tablet is questionable as a market entry to displace the leaders, but it has an interesting approach: http://www.eetimes.com/electronics-news/4218126/Adobe-and-Sony-launch-competition-to-develop-apps-for-new-tablets
