Google+ better than Facebook to find lost cameras

Markus Thompson was scuba diving in Deep Bay and found a Canon EOS 1000D camera in the deep. Maybe he read some Sherlock Holmes books in the past because Markus start an investigation to find the camera owner.

lost canon camera

He search for camera serial (0520213746) and even ask Canon Canada about it. No luck.
He post the photos downloaded from SD card (yes, the SD was working…) on Facebook and Google +. On Facebook get only one “like” but with Google + the owner was found!

Also, big media (like The Verge and Engadget) publish the news.

The Black Friday is dead. Long live the Cyber Monday!

The Black Friday is over… Some retailers like Amazon still offer some good deals under Black Friday umbrella but they prepare the new deals for upcoming Cyber Monday.

Amazon has expanded the Cyber Monday to Cyber Week 2011, so there will be a lot of discounts during the all next week.

I’ll search for best possible deals and I’ll let you know about them as soon I’ll have information. For the moment I know few deals like Microsoft Xbox 360 250GB Holiday Bundle ($100 off), Nokia N8 ($249 off), and so on.


Cyber Monday was invented by in 2005. Now, the Cyber Monday is the online equivalent to Black Friday and in 2010 Cyber Monday surpassed $1 billion in online sales.
