DXG-125V: A $100 HD Waterproof Camcorder

Shock, disbelief and jaw drop.  These are all things that describe my reaction to the DXG-125V (pictured above), a tiny waterproof camcorder that can record 720p video (h.264 encoding) and costs just $100!  It will hit this July and come in red, military olive and winter camouflage.  As for storage...

Getting hitched this Spring or Summer?  Then you might wanna consider investing in the DiamondNite Diamond Moissanite Tester.  It can’t distinguish between machine made and the Earth’s diamonds, but it can tell you if it’s not a diamond at all.  Course, a little training and a magnifying glass can accomplish...
