Epitaph on Net
Agreed, these days people find computers more intimate than letters. But writing an epitaph in e-mail' A Spanish Internet company is breaking fresh ground on the Web by offering people the chance to write one last e-mail, complete with video clip or photo attachments, and send it to loved ones after his/her death against a monthly fee unto death. 'Most people leave notes behind in drawers or boxes. This is the same, but via Internet,' said Alberto Iriarte, director of Global Spectrum, the Pamplona-based company which runs the service in English, Spanish and Portuguese versions. One can also update and rewrite those final farewells.
Nikon's new digital camera comes with an adapter that allows it to send higher resolution pictures through the airwaves. The new model, called D2X, can be operated wirelessly as well, from a computer up to 400 feet away, using a normal Wi-Fi network. This is the first camera to allow wireless remote control for all its major functions while others have been able to transmit photos over wired data networks. The D2X has also got a liquid crystal display on its back donning the look of a digital camera.
