Can someone explain to me the difference in price tag between the Canon WFT-E5A and the Eye-Fi Pro X2? The Canon is $700 and the Eye-Fi Pro is $150. I know they are two different things with different formats but they both generally can accomplish the same thing.
The Canon WFT is an attachment for your camera (Canon 5D,7D, etc) while the Eye-Fi is a SD card (Nikon D40, D90, etc) that happens to have wireless connectivity built in.
Both are secure 802.11g compatible (Eye-Fi supports N as well). They both can be set up as a FTP site with access from anywhere in the world (a few tricks with the Eye-Fi) as well as real-time access to your camera’s photos from anywhere in the world. They both can be set up as a DLNA server (again a few steps and free software with the Eye-Fi). The Canon WFT allows you to shoot in “Utility Mode” from another computer as if you were right in front of it. I guess this is a plus for the Canon as before you had to do this with a USB wire. The Eye-Fi itself cannot do this but maybe your camera can. They both can do geo-tagging but the WFT allows the ability to attach GPS devices whilst the Eye-Fi depends on router information.
Now, a very nice feature that the Canon WFT provides is the ability to attach external hard drives to your camera as storage devices. The benefits and possibilities of this are obvious, however, I cannot justify the huge price tag.
I’m a Verizon customer. I love their service. I love my underground subway hotspots where I can quickly make calls or do my tweeting. I’m sure you’ve heard this before. However, as a Verizon customer, my choice of smart phones is limited.
I own a Blackberry. I love it. Do I want an iPhone? Kind of. Is it possible with Verizon? Not yet. There are many things with the iPhone that I have trouble dealing with (not including it’s carrier) but I am willing to give it a shot. That in itself is a whole different post.
Today, Google’s Nexus One phone went on sale. It won’t be available at Verizon until Spring 2010. There is a rumor that another iPhone will be released then on Verizon. The Nexus One is a better phone on paper. You can view a specs comparisons chart here*. As you can see from the facts, the iPhone only wins in categories that have nothing to do with the phone itself. Apps? Sync? These things don’t matter to me personally but I can understand someone weighing these things in a decision. Therefore, the Nexus One is better for me on paper.
I haven’t used it yet and have only used the iPhone for maybe a combined hour. From watching dozens of videos of the Nexus One’s new Android OS, I can only come to the conclusion that it’s similar to the iPhone’s and will probably come down to personal taste.
I currently use Google’s massive amount of services everyday including Google Voice. The Nexus One has integrated Google Voice into it’s phone (as with other Android devices) much better than it is on my BlackBerry. If you haven’t used Google Voice yet, please do yourself the favor of giving it a try. Unfortunately, Apple won’t budge with letting iPhone’s use it. The Nexus One clearly wins here for me. I know it’s not truly part of the phone itself but it definitely has weight in my decision and is worth mentioning.
I’m excited Google has taken software politics into it’s own hands and entered the Mobile device market. Google promotes open source. They don’t block apps for dumb reasons. Did anyone mention DRM? The feature list goes; fastest chip, good camera, nice screen, flash player, Google Navigation, best Voice recognition, live wallpaper, etc, but the most important feature is the ability to make a phone call. The Nexus One wins for me but I am many months away from owning one. So, this is it, until something better comes along.
*Hardware, yes. Software, no. Although it doesn’t affect my decision.

However, I’m a big fan of 88 and reading 90′s hip-hop liner notes so this story is very appealing. I actually met 88 quite a few times but the first time was during the studio recording of Angie Stone’s “Stone Love” album. He appreciated that someone recognized him and knew his work. There is another video of when he met Jay Dee for the first time. It’s also a very interesting story.
