A new Kickstarter project is hoping to combine some popular recent gadget trends with commonly sought after DSLR and pro photography features for a Bluetooth gadget that’s unique and more versatile than most in the same category. It’s called the MaxStone, and it’s a smartphone controlled camera shutter, Bluetooth device locator and remote smartphone shutter trigger all in one.

The MaxStone is a small device powered by a single watch battery that you affix to your camera via a simple loop strap. It attaches in touch a way that it covers the camera’s shutter button, and hands down a small, pebble-like main body in front of your camera’s IR sensor. This actually contains an IR blaster that connects to your smartphone via Bluetooth, so that you can remotely trigger the camera’s shutter from your device. It’s a lot more low-tech than using Wi-Fi or something like that, but it…

Mozilla’s HTML5-based open mobile platform Firefox OS, which bagged support from a raft of carriers at the start of this year as a low cost alternative to Android-based smartphones, is gearing up to launch in more markets.

New device hardware running FFOS is also incoming, Mozilla said today in a blog — although it’s not naming the forthcoming markets and devices at this point, noting only that new phones will run the latest version of the OS, FFOS (1.1), also announced today.

“Individual partners will announce specifics about upcoming launches in each market,” it added.

New features in the v1.1 update to FFOS include: performance improvements, such as better app load times and smoother scrolling; support for new languages (now more than 15 languages); support for MMS; a push notifications API; and more. “This Firefox OS update will be available for current users and on developer phones soon,” said Mozilla.

“With @Jack, @Ev & @biz at @Twitter today, together, guessing the IPO/S-1 filing will probably happen tomorrow,” Om Malik tweeted last Thursday, presciently predicting the arrival of the company’s S-1 a couple of hours — not 24 hours — later.

So clearly this was planned, the world is thinking. Twitter, champion of the news cycle, doing some more skillful cycling. Well, not exactly.

From what we’re hearing, the Very Special Tea Time was not a pre-IPO production. The three founders were at the company’s 1355 Market headquarters coincidentally after Twitter CEO Dick Costolo had promised to bring the band back together in front of all employees. Jack Dorsey and Ev Williams had jointly appeared at a recent sales conference in San Francisco this past summer to great success, and someone had asked for a rematch. The last time all three core founders had spoken together was when Twitter had…

Gaming and Linux in the same heading makes for interesting reading to all our followers


In his keynote today at Linuxcon, Valve CEO and Founder Gabe Newell said Linux is the future of gaming and hinted about the announcement next week of a gaming box built on the open-source operating environment.

As proof of Linux’s bright future, Newell pointed to Steam, the company’s online platform. Since it launched last spring, developers have created 198 games on it.

He said it points to a future in which games will be nodes in a connected economy where the vast majority of goods and services will be created by individuals not companies.

The reasons for Linux’s rosy future dates back to the age when PC vendors ruled with proprietary technologies. By blocking competitors, open systems emerged and the proprietary hardware became less relevant. Today, PC gaming is where the innovation is occurring, with the most interesting developments coming from open communities.

He said proprietary systems create friction, which…
