It's high season for consumer electronics. Apple, Nintendo and other manufacturers of various gadgets are unveiling their holiday lineups. Some products surrounding a new version of Windows are also coming out.

Here's a recap of the announcements so far:

Sept. 4: Microsoft Corp. releases the first major update to its server operating system since 2009, a prelude to releasing Windows 8 to consumers in October. Microsoft says Windows Server 2012 adds features that make it easier to manage large clusters of servers in data centers remotely.

Sept. 5: Nokia Corp. unveils its first phones running the next version of Windows. The company didn't reveal prices and says only that the Windows Phone 8 devices will be available in the fourth quarter 'in select markets.' The two devices are under Nokia's Lumia brand.

Motorola Mobility, under new owner Google Inc., announces three smartphones borrowing the Razr brand, the name of the hit clamshell phone from 2004. The $99 Razr M goes on sale in Verizon Wireless stores on Sept. 13. Two higher-end models will come later.

Sept. 6: Inc. announces four new Kindle Fire tablet computers as it steps up competition with Apple Inc. and its iPad. Two of the models have screens nearly as large as the iPad's, at lower prices. Those will start shipping in November, while the smaller, 7-inch models will start selling Sept. 14. Amazon also refreshes its line of stand-alone e-readers.

Sept. 10: Toys R Us says it plans to launch its own Android tablet computer aimed at children. Called Tabeo, it will start selling on Oct. 21 for $150. The 7-inch touch-screen tablet will come with 50 apps selected for children, including such games as 'Angry Birds' and 'Fruit Ninja' and a book app called istorybooks. Toys R Us sells other electronics including the iPad, but this is its first store-brand tablet.

Sept. 11: Google releases a new YouTube app for the iPhone and the iPad as Apple prepares to release a new iPhone model and a software update that displaces the video service as a built-in program. The changes are being made because Google Inc. and Apple Inc. didn't renew a five-year licensing agreement.

Sept. 12: Apple unveils a bigger, lighter iPhone, with an ability to connect to faster data networks known as 4G. The iPhone 5 will go on sale in the U.S. on Sept. 21, with advance orders starting this Friday. Apple also refreshed the iPod Nano and the iPod Touch. Plus, it introduced a new type of headphone called EarPods, which are meant to fit comfortably in more people's ears.

Sept. 13: Nintendo says its new Wii U game machine will go on sale in the U.S. on Nov. 18, starting at $300. It also announces an entertainment component called Nintendo TVii. The service collects all the ways users have to watch movies, TV shows and sports, such as through cable TV, Hulu and Netflix.

Sept. 14: Advance orders for Apple's new iPhone begin. Delivery times climb quickly, suggesting heavy demand.

    Today, I went to the beachfront with my kids. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year
    old daughter and said "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear." She
    placed the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
    She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is completely off topic but I had to tell someone!

    A striptease is a sensual or exotic [url=""]virtua girl hd[/url] dance where the performer gradually undresses, either partly or entirely, in a seductive and sexually suggestive way. [1] The individual who carries out a striptease is typically called a "stripper" or stripper.In Western nations, the locations where erotic dances are carried out on a regular basis are now generally called strip clubs, though they might be carried out in venues such as bars (specifically in the UK), theaters and music halls. Sometimes, a stripper may be hired to perform at a bachelor or bachelorette party. In addition to providing adult home entertainment, removing can be a type of sexual play between partners. This can be done as an unscripted event or-- maybe for a special celebration-- with sophisticated preparation including fantasy wear, music, special lighting, practiced dance relocations, or unrehearsed dance moves.Striptease includes a sluggish, sensuous undressing. The stripper may prolong the undressing with postponing techniques such as the wearing of additional clothing or putting clothing or hands in front of just undressed body parts such as the breasts or genitalia. The emphasis is on the act of undressing in addition to sexually suggestive movement, instead of the state of being undressed. In the past, the performance frequently finished as soon as the undressing was ended up, though today's strippers typically continue dancing in the nude. [2] [3] The outfit the stripper uses prior to disrobing can form part of the act. Sometimes, audience interaction can form part of the act, with audience prompting the stripper to get rid of more clothes, or the stripper approaching the audience to engage with them.Striptease and public nudity have undergone legal and cultural restrictions and other visual factors to consider and taboos. Constraints on locations may be through venue licensing requirements and constraints and a variety of nationwide and regional laws. These laws differ significantly all over the world, as well as in between various parts of the same country.H. L. Mencken is credited with creating the word ecdysiast-- from "ecdysis", implying "to molt"-- in action to a request from striptease artist Georgia Sothern, for a "more dignified" way to describe her profession. Gypsy Rose Lee, one of the most famous striptease artists of perpetuity, approved of the term.

    I have been imaging the sun with a 40mm PST and a Philips webcam for a few years. I recently purchased a DMK 41 and really like the improvement in the disk features. I usually add color. However, adding color to the prominences has not been that successful. A large prominence captured with the webcam turns out better.Can you elaborate on how I should be adding color to prominences?Thanks, Ron
