Today, Nikon announced the addition of new zoom Coolpix P610 and Coolpix L840 cameras to its compact camera lineup. These Coolpix offerings incorporate the latest Nikon imaging technology, with Nikkor optics that offer super-long zoom lenses of 60x and 38x, respectively. Also released are the the compact Coolpix S9900, S7000 and S6900 for entry-level shooters.
Nikon is expanding its Coolpix range with three more compact cameras in the United Kingdom. The Coolpix S2900 and the Coolpix S3700 pack a 20-megapixel CCD image sensor inside their small and colorful casings, while the Coolpix L31 is a cheaper model with a 16-megapixel CCD sensor, powered by easily-replaceable AA batteries.
Nikon's second camera launch of the day is a new device in its Coolpix compact camera range aimed at "selfies." The Coolpix S6900 is a 16-megapixel shooter with a wide-angle 12x optical zoom lens, with Nikon pitching it as a camera for impromptu self portraits and sharing on social networks, thanks to its display, stand, and Wi-Fi connectivity.
Nikon is adding another camera to its popular Coolpix line, with an Android-based device. The Coolpix S810c runs on Android 4.2.2, an upgrade from the Android 2.3 used in the Coolpix S800c two years ago, and while it has a similar 16-megapixel sensor to its predecessor, its optical zoom has been improved from 10x to a greater 12x, doubling to 24x using "Dynamic Fine Zoom."
Nikon announced the latest additions to its lineup of Coolpix cameras that offer advanced optics and performance. The 60x zoom Coolpix P600 and 42x zoom Coolpix P530 provide super-long zoom lenses, and the ability to capture images and Full HD (1080p) videos. Additionally, the slim 30x zoom Coolpix S9700 and the Coolpix P340 claim to provide quality images in a compact package.
Camera maker Nikon has used the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas to debut a new line of consumer-oriented Coolpix cameras as well as a replacement for the entry-level D3200 DSLR. It also announced that it will produce a successor to the D4, called the D4S, later this year. The new D3300 now features 24-megapixel shooting, full HD video at 60fps, in-camera panorama and burst shooting. The Coolpix models are mostly point-and-shoot, with one "superzoom" offering.
Nikon on Wednesday debuted two new cameras that are upgrades from previous models. The Coolpix S02 follows the pocketable compact point-and-shoot S01, and is even smaller and lighter than its predecessor. It's goal is to be a tiny camera that still take better pictures than most mobile phones, but light enough to convince consumers to also bring it along. The larger Coolpix P7800 is a sequel to last year's P7700, and adds a significantly-improved 921,000-dot electronic viewfinder and wider aperture range, aiming more for the advanced consumer market.
Nikon has launched a pair of cameras in its Coolpix compact camera range. The Coolpix S6600 offers a 16-megapixel backside-illuminated CMOS sensor with lens-shift vibration reduction and 12x optical zoom, while the Coolpix L620 is equipped with an 18.1-megapixel BSI CMOS sensor with 14x optical zoom and a similar vibration reduction system.
Nikon has revealed three new Coolpix cameras, including its first with a DX-format CMOS sensor. The Coolpix A aims to offer customers the image quality found in a DSLR but inside a compact camera, while the P330 expands on the groundwork done by the Coolpix P310, and the S3500 provides an upgraded feature set to the Coolpix S line, including lens-shift vibration reduction.
Nikon has extended its point-and-shoot Coolpix line with a pair of compact super-zoom cameras. The 16-megapixel Coolpix L820 is capable of recording Full HD video through its 30x zoom NIKKOR lens, while the more-powerful and higher-resolution 18-megapixel Coolpix P520 increases the zoom range of the lens to 42-times.

HBO Now has 800,000 subscribers
The CEO of HBO, Richard Plepler has confirmed that the online streaming HBO service, HBO Now, has 800,000 subscribers. When criticized for the seemingly low number, Plepler noted that the still nascent service was bound to Apple exclusivity during the fifth season of Game of Thrones. Plepler declared during the Time Warner quarterly earnings conference call marketing for the online-only offering would be enhanced in 2016. While HBO Now's critics are slamming the low numbers, the service must also compete against itself on cable, in addition to Netflix and other streaming services. http://on.recode.net/1QWoLHe
Unsafe IoT called threat to humanity
US Director of National Intelligence James Clapper told two different Senate committees yesterday that the Internet of Things posed a clear and present danger, and could be weaponized by governments. Before the Senate Armed Services Committee and the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, Clapper declared that insecure IoT "will bring new security vulnerabilities" and "will connect tens of billions of new physical devices that could be exploited" by those wishing to perpetrate violence or eavesdrop on the populace of the world. http://bit.ly/23Xvcky

Google given NHTSA SDS waivers
In contrast to the California Department of Motor Vehicle's approach, the US National Highway Traffic and Safety Administration (NHTSA) has confirmed that it is declaring the software in autonomous cars is the legal driver of a so-equipped vehicle. In a letter to Google, the NHTSA says that it "will interpret 'driver' in the context of Google's described motor vehicle design as referring to the SDS [self-driving system], and not to any of the vehicle occupants." Other matters, such as legally-required rear-view mirrors for occupied vehicles has yet to be determined. However, regulations specifying the "driver" need no longer be interpreted as meaning a person behind the wheel, as the agency writes that self-driving cars "will not have a 'driver' in the traditional sense that vehicles have had drivers during the last more than one hundred years" http://1.usa.gov/1QrAGtR
