Okay, now it's time for me to give you some updates on the techie scene. First up, I'll be giving a rundown on the new Sony HDR TG5V cam, the HTC Snap Android phone and the newest in the Acer Veriton line of desktop PCs.

Without any further ado, let's fire the guns away.

Sony’s HDR-TG5V High Definition Handycam Camcorder is a pocket-sized powerhouse where true 1920 x 1080i video meets a rugged, yet sleek, lightweight titanium body. Features include a 2.7″ LCD with a touch panel screen for intuitive menu navigation and a 1/5″ CMOS sensor for capturing brilliant 2.3MP video and 4MP stills.

The professional Carl Zeiss Vario-Tessar lens features 10x optical zoom and SteadyShot image stabilization. Face Detection automatically adjusts exposure and focus on up to 8 faces. Smile Shutter technology ensures smiles on stills. The camera has Dolby(R) Digital stereo recording, and includes HDMI (TM) and USB 2.0 interfaces.

While the HDR-TG5V records to Memory Stick PRO Duo media just like its predecessor, the HDR-TG1, this camcorder also provides the added flexibility of recording to its 16GB built-in flash memory.

The TG5V also adds Geotagging, a built-in GPS receiver that allows for tagging shots for storage and easy retrieval from the camera’s Map Index.
