→ MacWorld also gets a Redesign

TechHive‘s launch was not the only big event for Jason Snell and crew today, Macworld also got a snazzy, new design.

→ Kindle Fire HD Review – TechHive

If this review is an indication of the quality of the writing we are going to get on the new TechHive, then this new site is going to be good.

Best Coverage of the new Kindle Lineup

Though The Verge has some good stories on new Amazon Kindle lineup, Techhive is absolutely killing it:

The new Paperwhite model looks pretty sweet.

→ eInk Explained

TechHive with a break down of eInk. Pretty cool stuff, though I feel like it has not advanced as fast as I thought it would. A color, eInk Kindle would be extremely compelling.

→ Security Options in the Cloud

Another excellent instructional article from the guys at TechHive.

Not everyone wants to hold the keys to their own data, and would prefer a trusted provider takes that role on, partly because the loss of a password or key means absolutely no way to restore data or access files that are locked away. But if you’re interested in maintaining your own data’s security, you can leverage a cloud provider or software to be the lord or lady of your own domain.

I wish SpiderOak1, and their encryption of your data before it’s sent to the server, would get the same kind of ubiquity that Dropbox has. That would ease some of my security concerns.

→ TechHive with some tips on getting more out of the iPhone Camera

Camera Awesome1 has two burst-mode settings: One that captures two full-resolution (8 megapixel) photos per second, and a “high-speed” mode that rattles off six shots per second at a reduced 640-by-480 (0.3 megapixel) resolution.

That’s how I took my engagement photo. Also interesting:

And finally, there’s Cinemagram, which lets you add a bit of motion to an otherwise still photograph. You launch the app and record a short video clip, then you select a portion of the video clip to use for your “photo.” The next step involves drawing a “mask” over parts of the image with your finger; anything within those regions will remain in motion while the rest of the image stays still. Cinemagram also offers an Instagram-like sharing community, but it also outputs your work as a 360-by-480 animated .gif that you can embed or share via Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, or e-mail.

No real surprises, but TechHive sums them up nicely.
