Usain Bolt breaks World Record in 100m - 9.69

Jamaican athelete Usain Bolt , also known as Thunder Bolt, as expected broke his own world record set on 31 May 2008, from 9.72 to 9.69 for 100m. He started Celebrating 20 M earlier.

I was waiting for this event and him since long. It was held on 16th august, the 100m Mens Finals. I knew he'd come first. He broke the 200M record too. But 100m is greater !

He didnt care about the world record, he just did his thing. Look how calm he is just before the race:In the start, he is slow, thats why de doesnt get tensed before the race, because he knows that he wont lead until the first 35 M
" Now you're gone " ! (have you heard this dance music ?, lols)
Bye Bye other ppls !
The largest Margin in a 100M ever
Celebration on 82nd meters !
yeah ! this is what made the race MOST interesting
we know you did it :)
Lead !
Look at the collosal difference !
Winner at last ! True Winner
Final Stride
Winner at last again !

Sony Cyber-shot DSC-T77 features 3 inches of touch-screen goodness

What's 15mm thin, comes in five colors, has a 10.1-megapixel resolution, a 4x optical zoom, and costs $300? Why, it's the new Sony Cyber-shot DSC-T77 digital camera. Oh, and it's got a 3-inch touch-screen LCD as well. The only physical controls on this replacement of the DSC-T70 are for power, shutter, and zoom.

Beyond those specs and its stylish looks, the T77 is a typical pocket camera, with a smattering of modes (10 in all), an ISO 3,200 sensitivity, and optical image stabilization. Sony's made some nice tweaks to some of the modes like the smile recognition mode that allows it to continue to take photo after photo when it detects smiles without you ever hitting the shutter button. There's blink recognition so you never get caught with your eyes closed, a new gourmet mode for shooting your food, and intelligent scene mode selection, which will pick the appropriate mode for your subject.

If all this sounds familiar, it's because the Nikon Coolpixs announced today have similar features. Now, it's just time for us to see who's done the best job with software and implementation.

I really wish to own one, and its a fair cost - $175 - 300 only.

The DSC W-100, costed $500, which actually didn't cost me anything. But this gives comparatively, 3.5 times the performance of any W series, and 1.25 times the performance of T series from Sony's Still Pocket/Compact Digital Cameras.
