Robin Good: Here is a full in-depth field review of the brand new Canon 5D MKIII, one of the best HDSLR cameras you can buy today.
From the review by Zach Honig: "Like its predecessor, the 5D Mark III is an incredibly capable video shooter -- in fact, some of the camera's future owners may not use it to capture stills at all.
...there's no option to capture stills while you're recording video, though if you're shooting in 1080p -- there's support for 1080 at 24/25/30p or 720 at 50/60p -- you'll probably have plenty of frame grabs to use.
...At $3,499 for the body only, Canon priced this latest 5D higher than its predecessor, which rang in at $2,699 at launch..."

N.B.: Google is currently rolling out the new update across all Google+ users, but explains that it might take a couple of days for the new feature to hit your account."

Anise Smith writes on her blog: "The new Facebook Timeline layout for brands will be going live March 30, 2012 ready or not so I thought I would find as much information as possible to get you prepared.
I found a great two part tutorial that I screen captured that really provides an amazing step by step walk through of Timeline for Brands.
I am pretty sure it will get you prepared to make your Timeline shine for your brand.
Take a look at the two videos below and they should answer EVERY question that you have about how Timeline will work for your brand."

This is fascinating whether you're an iPhone fan or not, it's pure genius and we certainly will miss Steve Jobs.
"The ongoing talk about the iPhone is probably divided into two camps. Some people are for it, and some are against it.
Ever since this groundbreaking new smartphone was announced and launched, people have been arguing about whether it is actually the best one, the first one or even the most successful one."
****What we know for sure is that the iPhone, no matter what generation it is, is a massively popular smartphone. It’s been sold in ridiculous amounts, and with
****the recent news that the iPhone 4S sold 4 million smartphones in its 3 first days of release, you can’t help but agree that it is a hot gadget for people to own.
