VMware demoed a Nokia N800 featuring its mobile hypervisor at its VMworld Europe conference, showing Windows CE and Google's Android running at the same time.In a keynote at VMworld Europe, chief technology officer (CTO) Stephen Herrod unveiled the firm’s mobile virutalisation platform, explaining that phones featuring hypervisors - the technology that allows virtualisation - will have two main functions.The first enables users to back up their system and data on a virtual machine, so if they get a new phone they can easily transfer contacts and other information regardless of the operating system. “What data is on a device will outlive the device,” he said.This will also make developing mobile applications much easier, as developers can embed it on a virtual machine with a thin operating system of its own,…

Canon, DCinema, Disruptive Technology, RED EPIC
When Canon announced their new 5D MKII DSLR Camera everyone was wowed by the 21MP sensor and all the other new goodies. What everyone has missed/neglected is the fact that this little beauty has the potential to become the new RED Camera. You see, with it's 2K video output (1080P) in quicktime RAW format at 30 fps and superb low-light performance, Canon has created a dynamite hybrid camera for the photo jounalists (or anyone who doesn't want to spend 20-30K on a RED camera). Vincent Laforet has done a very in depth review of this camera's video capabilities on his blog (video is upcoming).
