A round-up of what's new in the App Store, Google Play, BlackBerry World and Windows Phone Store
Garmin Forerunner 910XT
Those who take their running seriously develop things like a 'personal best' and 'speed/distance' ratio - both of which, in our case, are too shameful to mention
To measure these stats, the pros use training watches like the Garmin Forerunner 910XT. According to current ITU Triathlon World Champion, and potential London 2012 medalist Alistair Brownlee, the inbuilt GPS technology in Garmin devices helps keep him "on track but also to be a step ahead of the competition."
The Forerunner 910XT can actually provide detailed metrics on all kinds of sports, including running, cycling and swimming, although there doesn't seem to be a specific setting for 'park trundling'. Shame.

I have an old Olympus Trip and a Nikon which cost at least ten times more than the cheapish £33 Olympus.
Comparing the results of both,there was little to choose between the two.
I don't profess to be an expert photographer and am happy with the results I get from these two cameras.
I firmly believe that if you gave a professional photographer a Box Brownie,they would still produce top quality pictures,it's all to do with composing the picture,lighting,exposure setting etc.
What a price for a camera. You have to ask just what it does for that money. I have a Nikon D5000 and I am as happy with it now as when I bought it.
I dont agree that a compact camera could produce the same results just because a pro is using it though.
A lot is true about the talent of the photographer but also what the camera is able to do.....aperture settings, dof settings...flash settings...tripod .I know how and when to use them....thats makes a big difference....
I don't know if many remember the original Olympus Trip ads with David Bailey. They sum things up perfectly, a great photographer with an OK camera will always take better pictures than an OK photographer with a great camera.
For studio work with still life it could help close the gap, but for creative work, not really.
There is far too much 'chimping' going on nowadays and not enough actual photo taking.
FYI chomping - click look, click look, click look......… repeat
