Our Latest ITTV Video:
One of the most popular gift categories for the holidays is digital cameras. We're revisiting a Product Spotlight segment we did recently with Mike Kahn from Sony about a new line of cool Digital Cameras... and some Digital Binoculars. Also, Chris Graveline takes us into Yesterday with "This Week in Tech History".

... and send us your Holiday Rejoins!
Because you are "family", we would love it if you would consider recording a Holiday Rejoin for us that we will air on the show, between Thanksgiving and New Years. "Rejoins" are little promotional announcements that we air – usually just done by Dave – over our show theme, as we "rejoin" the show after commercial breaks. During the holidays, Dave always like to have his on & off-air staff do them, but this year we would also like to include some of our special friends and YOU are certainly among them!
This would simply be a 10-12 second AUDIO ONLY message that you can record using our free "Into Tomorrow" App for iPhone or Android Smartphone and listen to it, making sure it's what you'd like to say and sounds good to you. Then, if you'd like to re-record it before sending, it's easy. If you like it, just hit the button and it will "send to the studio". Then we'll match it with some nice generic holiday music and have it ready to start airing Thanksgiving Week.
Here we have a brief sample, to give you a general idea. These must NOT sound commercial at all, but instead just YOUR personal Holiday Greeting or Holiday Reminder and should end with a 'toss' back to the show. (Like … "Now… back to Dave")
For example, you might say something like "Hi this is long-time listener Mary from New York wishing you an awesome holiday season and a wonderful New Year and remember to do Dave and yourself a favor and PARTICIPATE on "Into Tomorrow" often! Now … back to you Dave!" Or something similar, In YOUR own words & thoughts.
WE will add the music and get them in the on-air system.
1) Select "Ask Dave any time 24/7" on the FREE "Into Tomorrow" App
2) Out of the choices, tap on audio
3) Hit record, record the message (10-12 seconds ONLY!), hit stop when done.
4) You can play it back if you'd like
4) Tap the button to email to the studio and hit send to let the email with the audio attachment go out.
Thank you and HAPPY HOLIDAYS from "Into Tomorrow with Dave Graveline"!

126M U.S. adults did online shopping over the weekend
The Thanksgiving weekend and Cyber Monday saw 126 million U.S. adults engage in online shopping, up 10% from 2012, according to the Consumer Electronics Association. "Consumers appear to have responded to retailers' strong push to get them in the stores and online early this year," said Shawn DuBravac, CEA's chief economist and senior director of research. "The dust is still settling, but early indications point to a weekend of record-breaking online sales and a healthy appetite for key tech products." More -- eWeek
Amazon Drone Delivery: Why It's Not Crazy
Amazon Prime Air delivery robots are made to fly and deliver packages autonomously, no human operator required. Before they're deployed, however, Amazon must wait — along with everyone else interested in using drones for commercial purposes — for the FAA to set the regulations for civilian drones. Even then, there are a host of issues that could delay Amazon's robotic flight of fancy for decades. Nonetheless, even though Amazon Prime Air is the most ambitious commercial drone program ever, there's no reason it couldn't work. Today. More -- Pete Pachal, Mashable

Nokia sells almost all the Windows phones
Nokia phones account for 90% of all Windows Phone handsets in use worldwide, a figure that is rising monthly, according to AdDuplex, a marketing network devoted to Windows-powered smartphones. A version of Nokia's popular Lumia 520 will target emerging markets with the low-end 525 model that will hit parts of the Asian and African this year and in early 2014. Nokia will also target the overseas budget market with a pair of phones that run on its Asha platform. More -- TechCrunch
A look at Google's motivation behind the Nexus brand
Google's branded Nexus phones are not sales leaders, but some analysts say sales volume isn't Google's end goal. In producing smartphones that carry the stock Android platform, Google has tried to encourage phone-makers to develop better handsets. "The Nexus line is a hedge against indifference. It sends a message to manufacturers that if they can't develop competitive Android products, Google will on their own," said Patrick Moorhead, an analyst at Moor Insights & Strategy.
