In a strange ruling against basic privacy Ontario’s highest court ruled that the police can look through your phone if there’s no password. If it is locked, however, investigators will need a search warrant. The logic (?) behind the ruling is kind of hard to figure out but it seems to suggest if your
How is it so many Russians managed to get those awesome meteor shots from their cars? Dash cams are getting more popular but I doubt very much if something like that happened here in Halifax there’d one video let alone a dozen. Turns out I wasn’t the only one thinking that. WIRED did some
NEMO could have been much worse. Thankfully we here in Halifax didn’t get hit like they did down in Boston but it was still a mess. Like many parts of the country affected by the winter dump thousands of people lost their power, some for hours, some for days. So if that happened to

I picked up the Philips In.Sight Wireless Home Monitor kit a couple months ago. So far it’s done exactly what I hoped for. It keeps an eye on our place and allows me to check in from anywhere via an iPhone app for a live look. One is pointed out front and the other
Test video for the Brinno TLC200. For time lapse it’s an easy solution. Turn it on, set time interval, frame your subject, and walk away. It takes a series of jpeg images and converts them in camera into an AVI file. I ordered mine with the optional waterproof case. Nothing to complicated. Now I
Shot on April 24, 1926. Fire Chief Kenlon and his fire crew get an alarm and race to the fire truck. Then the camera was mounted to the truck for the balance of the video showing a “dash cam” perspective. The second video shows the whole course of events, from the initial broadcast, warning,
