Sigma working on the successors to DP1
















Those who are the fans of DP1, get ready for some more clicking experience. Sigma is working on the successors to its DP1 compact camera. Even though DP1 is already ready the company hasn't yet done with the release. The two new models DP2 and DP3 will presumably share in common the same sort of full-frame sensor that reduces noise while still increasing sensitivity. They are also likely to come with cropped technology that artificially shifts the focal length of the lens.

The DP1 and DP2 are likely to be available by the year end.

Netscape Navigator bids adieu to the World Wide Web

















The world's first web browser, Netscape Navigator will sadly be no longer with us anymore from 1 March 2008. It will disappear forever as not many people have love for it though it was the one to have gave many people their first web experience.

Over the years, the popularity for Firefox and Explorer has seen steep increase while the user base for Netscape declined drastically even though Netscape has all the features of other browsers. Infact, the technologies and codes that are used in other browsers have been built on the same underlying technologies as that of Navigator. It's a sorry treatment for such an innovative internet icon. "I think we represent the hope that was of Netscape," Mitchell Baker, chair of the Mozilla Foundation which coordinates development of Firefox, told BBC News.

However, not all are happy about the news. There are still some who consider Netscape as their favourite browser and are in no way ready to show exit way to their best browser. " Many have commented that the browser will make a comeback.

"Netscape is a wonderful browser, and it will be so in the future," read one comment.
