I recently purchased Motorola's Razr v3 - must say the most feature filled, isync compatible blue tooth phone I have owned.

If you need address book and calendar updates between your home machine, .mac account, portable computer and phone, this will do it very well.

As a note, I found that all of sprint blue-tooth phones were infact gimped and only allowed for connectivity between the phone and handsfree sets, and offered no data connectivity (Sprint says its because they do not want to enable file sharing due to pay-to-download games, etc)

I ended up cancelling my sprint and went with Cingular (with the new Razr V3)

Check here (http://www.dpreview.com/reviews/compare.asp) for digital cameras. A friend has just got a Canon Ixus 50 and it's lovely. Why only 4 -5 MP though? For the price I'm assuming.
There are other tuners for a Mac, formac (http://www.formac.com/p_bin/?cid=solutions_converters_studiodvtv) for one but the general consensus is that the Eyetv - in all it's different flavours - is the best.
