9 Clever Comic Artists to Follow on Tumblr
Feed-twFeed-fb

Most casual Tumblr users view the site as a veritable goldmine of funny GIFs, memes and pictures of the Supernatural cast. What many don't realize is that Tumblr is also home to an extremely talented community of comic artists.

Tumblr's hassle-free sharing buttons and customizable templates make it a perfect place to start building a website for creative content like comics, and tons of cartoonists and illustrators have taken note.

"At first, I decided to post my comics on Tumblr simply because it was free," Safely Endangered artist Chris McCoy told Mashable. "But the kind messages and words of encouragement from users, and even other artists, are why I still post there." Read more...

Who It’s Good For: Anyone who wants an easy way to add music to an outdoor gathering.

Price: $429.99

What It’s Good For: Projecting movies, video games and photos onto your walls, ceilings or even the side of your house.

Limitations: You’ll need to be in a dark place to get the best video quality, and the projector is only capable of displaying images 60 inches in size.

Bottom Line: The Cinemin Slice can spice up your traditional movie watching experience, and it lets you show videos from your smartphone, computer or tablet with several people at once in a unique way.

Read the full story here.


5. Canon PowerShot G1 X


canon-gix-600Price: $799

What It’s Good For: Shooting great photos in challenging situations (like moving targets or low light) without the hassle of a full-featured DSLR.

Who It’s Good For: Budding photographers who want to level-up from everyday point-and-shoots or pros looking for a secondary camera.

Limitations: The retro design takes some getting used to, and it falls down on extreme close-ups.

Bottom Line: The camera delivers on its promise of shooting great pics, but it’s the compact and cool design you’re really paying for.

Read the full story here.


6. Eco Terra Rugged and Waterproof Boombox


Price: $149.99

What it’s good for: Sharing tunes from your smartphone or MP3 player with others while keeping your device protected against the elements.

Limitations: The boombox’s design may be too bulky to carry with you while rafting or kayaking. It’s also pretty heavy, which can make it difficult to tote along for longer journeys.

Bottom Line: The Eco Terra Rugged and Waterproof Boombox can be a great option for sharing music with others by the lake, on the beach or anywhere else other music players might be damaged by the great outdoors. But, you should be ready to lug it to wherever you’re headed.

Voices of the Debate: Where Media Sites Stand on SOPA


Many news sites, tech blogs and media companies have openly expressed where they stand in regards to the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) and Protect IP Act (PIPA).

By now, you know what it is, and if you don’t you can catch up here. Some sites have chosen to go dark in protest, such as Wikipedia, while others have taken smaller measures with a banner or landing page directing to more information on the subject, such as Google or Facebook. Many news sites are continuing to post articles as they would on any regular day.

As with the two bills themselves, it is not a one-answer situation for tech reporters. The role of any reporter is not to participate in a protest, but be the eyes and ears of the public. It is your right as a U.S. citizen to have an opinion, but it’s the responsibility of a journalist to make sure you have as much accurate, non-biased information on a subject before formulating that opinion.

This gets tricky when the issue at hand could, as critics have claimed, have the power to change the future of the web and technology, which many companies would agree is the foundation of their business.

We’ve round up some of the tech news sites and media companies’ articles on today’s protest against SOPA/PIPA. How do you think journalists should be responding to the issue? Let us know your thoughts in the comments.


1. Facebook




"The internet is the most powerful tool we have for creating a more open and connected world. We can't let poorly thought out laws get in the way of the internet's development. Facebook opposes SOPA and PIPA, and we will continue to oppose any laws that will hurt the internet." - Mark Zuckerberg

HANDS ON: 10 New Tablets Ready to Challenge the iPad [VIDEOS]


One of the standout trends of CES 2011 was the tablet. No fewer than 80 tablets were on display from manufacturers from across the globe, each hoping to take a piece of the growing market, led by the iPad.

Most of the tablets, unsurprisingly, were running Android. With details of Android 3.0 Honeycomb just starting to eke out in earnest at the show, most tablet makers were instead running customized versions of Android 2.2 or 2.3. By the time many of the tablets we looked at hit the market, we expect that they will ship with Honeycomb.

We’ve compiled a video gallery of some of our favorite tablets from the floors and hotel suites at CES. While most of these run Android, the BlackBerry PlayBook and the Windows 7-based ASUS Eee Slate EP121 also made strong showings.

The first Android 3.0-based tablet, the Motorola Xoom, was one of the big stars of CES, and we can’t wait to see it do more than running demos.

One of our surprise favorites of CES 2011 was the ASUS Eee Transformer. As someone who previously wasn’t sold on the concept of a detachable netbook/tablet combination, I have to say, I like ASUS’s approach in this space.

2011 is going to be a great year for tablets — Android or otherwise — and we look forward to watching these devices come to market and seeing what other surprises are in store for us from other manufacturers.

Do you plan on buying a tablet in 2011? Let us know in the comments.


Motorola Xoom and Android Honeycomb Demo


The Motorola Xoom will be the first tablet to hit the market running Google's tablet-specific version of Android, codenamed Honeycomb.

Mashable's Ben Parr already gave his thoughts on the tablet, and while we wish that more of the actual software (rather than just a demo loop) had been on display, we have high hopes for this dual-core tablet and for Honeycomb.

Motorola really spurred the Android revolution in the smartphone space. Let's see if the company can do the same thing with tablets.


Detailed Demo: BlackBerry PlayBook Tablet


BlackBerry announced its QNX-powered tablet, the BlackBerry PlayBook, last fall to much fanfare. As one of the few non-Android tablets at CES, we were curious to see the device up close and personal.

As you can see, the device is fast and has an interesting user interface. More than just supporting Flash video content, RIM also supports apps written in Adobe Air.

RIM might be trying to position the PlayBook as a business tool, but we think this dual-core tablet has more innate appeal to home users. We're just waiting for the company to announce pricing and availability information.


ASUS Eee Transformer


ASUS had a very solid showing at CES 2011, with no less than four tablets on display.

Our favorite of the bunch was the ASUS Eee Transformer. This 10.1-inch tablet was displayed running Android 2.2, but ASUS says it will ship with Honeycomb. The Tegra 2 chipset was fast and the screen was responsive.

The big standout feature of this tablet is that it can connect to a docking station of sorts that will turn the tablet into a bonafide netbook. Not only is the resulting package still very lightweight, it doubles the battery life to 16 hours (8 hours on the tablet, 8 on the keyboard). It also features seemingly standard Android-tablet features like front and rear cameras.

While lots of companies had keyboard/tablet hybrid models on display at CES, we most liked ASUS's approach with the Eee Transformer.


VIZIO VIA Tablet and Mobile Phone Demo at CES, 2011


We've already shared some of our thoughts on VIZIO's VIA tablet and smartphone series, but we think this 8-inch tablet deserves another mention for not just having a unique form factor (not 7 inches, not 10.1), but for having a very attractive Android skin.

The software on the demo unit was still being tweaked, but we liked some of the hardware features like three speakers for stereo sound in landscape and portrait mode, built-in IR ports and an HDCP compliant HDMI port.


Dell Streak 7 Demo


Dell made an impressive showing with its Streak 7 4G tablet at CES 2011.

This 7-inch, dual-camera tablet looked a lot like some of the other 7-inch tablets we saw at CES, but we appreciated the thought Dell put into making sure the device could connect with other components in the home.

The big question for Dell will be how quickly it can get Android 3.0 on its tablet, lest it repeat the same mistake it made with the Dell Streak 5 (shipping with the antiquated Android 1.6).


ASUS Eee Pad MeMO CES 2011


Another ASUS tablet on display at CES was the Eee Pad MeMO. This 7-inch tablet looks very similar to the Samsung Galaxy Tab, but it has a few tricks up its sleeve.

Not only has ASUS said that the Eee Pad MeMO will support Android 3.0, the device features a capacitive touch stylus that will let you take notes on the fly.

Perhaps it was the demonstration unit, perhaps it was all the hordes of people that used the device before us, but we had problems getting the stylus to respond well on the screen. This was reminiscent of other capacitive styli we've tried to use over the years (the new paintbrush stylus notwithstanding), which just never seem to work right.

More disappointingly, the addition of a digitizer or additional overlay for the stylus also impeded our finger movements on the device. Again, this was CES; it's possible that final shipping versions will be better. Form factor aside, the stylus gimmick wasn't much of a draw.

Still, we liked the spec layout of the device and we look forward to seeing it with Android 3.0


Panasonic Tablet to TV at CES 2011


Panasonic took a slightly different approach to the tablet mania, highlighting how you can use its innovative new accessory tablet with its line of connected television sets.


ASUS Eee Slate CES 2011


At last year's CES, Microsoft made a big production of showcasing a bunch of Windows 7-powered slate PCs. Twelve months later, most of those devices never hit the market.

That didn't stop ASUS from adding some variety to its Android-centric lineup with the Eee Slate EP121. This 12.1-inch LED-backlit tablet comes with a stand-alone, full-sized bluetooth keyboard and runs Windows 7 Home Premium. It also includes a stylus (that unlike the ASUS Eee MeMO, actually works well).

Under the hood, this device -- which has some heft and is far larger than other tablets on the market -- has an Intel Core i5 processor and an SSD with 32GB or 64GB of storage, plus 4GB or RAM. In other words, this is a power-packed laptop in the form factor of a tablet.

We were impressed with the device's speed and with the stylus -- the touch input wasn't bad either. Our only hesitation with this sort of device is battery life and real-world portability. The tablet is nice, but I'm not sure how different this is from traveling with both a small notebook and an iPad (or other tablet computer).

For individuals that want a full-functioning computer that can double as a tablet, who understand that they are giving up some portability and battery life, this might be an interesting compromise.


Dell Wireless Living Room and Streak 7 Demo


Dell's Angela Blair shows us how the company's new technologies allow you to wirelessly transfer media between devices in your home.


ASUS Eee Slider


The final ASUS tablet we played with was the Eee Slider. Spec wise, this is the same as the Eee Transformer but instead of detaching from the keyboard, a spring-bound keyboard is built-in underneath.

The keyboard isn't a bad size -- though we didn't like the keys on it as much as on the Transformer.

The demo unit wasn't as responsive as the Transformer, but since the two share the same internals we expect the final Android 3.0-shipping product to really fly. It features dual cameras, a Tegra 2 powered chipset and a beautiful 10.1-inch IPS display.

Our only hesitation with the Slider is that the bulk added on by the keyboard takes something away from the device. It's still relatively thin and lightweight, but we're not sure how often people will actually end up using the keyboard. From a travel standpoint, I could see myself more willing to use the Transformer (and leave the keyboard base behind when I'm on the go) rather than the Slider.

95+ Predictions for the Web in 2011


2010 was a busy year for social media and the web. It began (more or less) with the launch of the Apple’s genre-defining iPad tablet and culminated with the ascent of Facebook as the web’s most visited site. In between we had the fall of Palm, the rise of Android, the surprise of Groupon and the success of the Facebook movie. There was more, too, from fun new gadgets to embarrassing downtime (at a startup not called Twitter).

If all that was packed into the final year of the last decade, what’s coming our way as the calendar flips to the next?

For the past two weeks, editors and contributing writers at Mashable have been gazing into our crystal balls to try to discern what’s coming in the next year. Below is a roundup of all of our predictions posts for 2011, covering over 90 topical predictions for what’s in store for the web and social media in the coming year.
