Successful Meetings - February 2010 - (Page 13)

PLANNER’S WORKSHOP personal success The digital camera comes into the social networking age Snap & Share By William Ng, ocial networking wouldn’t be what it is today without the digital camera. Yet digital cameras wouldn’t be today’s pocket-size technological feats without Facebook, YouTube, and other social media sites pushing the envelope of their uses. As advanced as today’s cell phones are, their built-in cameras still do not capture life quite like digital cameras do. That’s why the devices remain an integral part of consumers’ web-connected lives, as they snap away and post their pictures online. S A unique WAY TO MEET YOU ARE HERE Samsung’s 12.2-megapixel CL65 camera is billed “the connected camera,” with built-in Bluetooth 2.0 for sending photos to other devices and WiFi connectivity for e-mailing (via a touchscreen keyboard) images to social networking hubs and photo-sharing sites like Picasa. Its internal GPS system geotags photos, and the camera contains the “intelli-studio” photo editing and management package. It has a 3.5-inch touch-screen LCD with a haptic interface: Holding a fingertip on a location on the screen automatically makes the camera focus there and take the image. $399.99 Beyond the meeting, the wonders of the Florida Keys beckon.
