Samsung’s new generation of HDTVs is pretty sleek, we admit. But the remote control that they come bundled with is quite amazing on its own. Why? Just take a look at it. Does it remind you of something? Yeah, we thought so too.

Hello, have we met before? Yes, I remember you – but back then you were called Aria. But has anything else changed besides the name, which changed to HTC Gratia, remains to be seen. As usual the first step is an unboxing video and a short tour of the user interface…

Samsung just announced the Wi-Fi-enabled SH100 ultra compact digital camera. It packs a 14 megapixel 1/2.33 CCD sensor and 5x zoom lens covering the 26-130mm range in 35mm equivalent, which sounds nice on its own.
