Wacom Bamboo Pad Wireless Touchpad with Digital St&hellip by Wacom
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Wacom's Bamboo line was once the jewel of their crown, but if this release is anything to go by, then the crown has started to rust.

I've found it rather hard to take this product seriously; Windows 7 support is poor with few applications taking advantage of the pad's functionality.

Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Panasonic's TZ60 is one of the most feature packed compact cameras that I've come to own, and provides a good deal of creative freedom if you want to control your images without having to rely too much on menu navigation. But is it a good deal?

Alongside the camera, the box also contains some software and manuals, wrist lanyard, battery, USB cable and, most surprisingly of all, a USB to 3 pin wall adapter. The latter is a welcome addition for a compact camera, given that other companies rely heavily on charging through another device or requiring the battery to be removed from the camera and put in a cradle. With the Tz60, charging is completed through the camera, so you have the… Read more
