Metricom Ricochet commences high-speed data rollout
If you've recently relocated to San Diego or Atlanta, pat yourself on the back for making such a brilliant move. Why? Because Metricom's high-speed wireless Internet access, called Ricochet, will be rolling out in the two southern U.S. cities at the end of July, with 19 more metropolitan areas to follow by year's end, and another 25 by mid-2001. If you like the thought of transmitting digital photos at 10K/second or more while driving down the Interstate at up to 70mph, Ricochet may be for you.

Aimed at digital newspaper photo departments, Scrounger 4 from T/ONE is designed to ease the input, storage and tracking of large numbers of digital camera images.

Nikon, third party software updated
If you shoot with a Nikon D1, there's a good chance that at least one of the programs you use with the camera is out of date. That's because the last month has seen a slew of D1-related software releases. They include:

Band Aide noise reduction filter released
While it's tempting to buy Camera Bits' Band Aide noise reduction filter based on the strength of its catchy name alone, there is, fortunately, an additional reason: it's the best way on the Mac to prepare noisy Nikon D1 photos for printing, and the only way on both Mac and Windows to effectively remove D1 luminance noise from within Photoshop.

IBM microdrive reaches 1GB
IBM this week announced the second generation of the Microdrive, the CompactFlash Type II miniature hard drive that's popular among Nikon D1 shooters in particular. The three new cards, code named Scully as they were being developed (the original Microdrives were code named Mulder, so the X-Files theme continues at Big Blue), will be available in 340MB, 512MB and 1GB capacities when they begin to ship to retail stores in August. The hampster, presumably, will not be included.

FireWire iBooks announced at Apple Expo 2000 in Paris
During his keynote address this morning at the Apple Expo 2000 show in Paris, Apple CEO Steve Jobs took the wraps off a new line of iBook computers. The primary change in the latest consumer Mac laptop is the addition of a single FireWire port, which enables the connection of a Nikon D1, Kodak/Canon pro camera or a speedy external card reader. This effectively removes the main barrier to the iBook's use in digital photojournalism, since it has always lacked a PC Card slot, thereby forcing users of previous models to use a sluggish USB card reader to move photos from card to computer.
