I had no idea!! - Upgrade a Wall Outlet to USB Functionality - You can get one at Lowe's or Home Depot for $15.
Hmm maybe camcorders won't get out of style soon enough, not if they have innovated it with WiFi, HD and app integration for the iPhone and Android. Like JVC's GZ-VX700, a high-sensitivity Premium Compact Design Full HD Memory Camcorder. Just install a free app on your Smartphone to control the camera, receive and share videos.
Taking photos through cell phones without buttons (only virtual) can be very uncomfortable and the photo can be blurred. But if you use HTC One X then there is a solutions to this problem. Whether this was planned or not by HTC, apparently the bluetooth earphones can be used as an external remote shutter button to take pictures through the phone. This way allow you to take pictures with more stability and able to take a self portrait photo.
