THE NEW iPad

The iPad was al­ways the best tablet around, but with a retina dis­play screen things got much bet­ter. If we have waited for an iPad killer for all th­ese years, it has al­ways turned out to be an­other iPad. This year, there were two iPads, one bet­ter than the other, but both bet­ter than all the rest. Now, th­ese tablets have bet­ter pro­cess­ing power, more sound out­put, a 5MP iSight rear cam­era with aut­o­fo­cus and voice dic­ta­tion. That should do till the

next iPad comes along.

OLYM­PUS OM-DEM-5

It is rare for a cam­era to im­press its users at so many lev­els. This com­pact miror­less cam­era is one such de­vice. Be its ease-of-use, its low-light per­for­mance or its mo­torised zoom lens, the EM-5 has an awe fac­tor all the way. We were par­tic­u­larly im­pressed by its max ISO of 25600 which lets you click pic­tures in com­plete dark­ness, that too with min­i­mal noise. This is one cam­era that can put most en­try and mid-level DSLRs to shame. But then it costs as much as a DSLR too.
