Path for Windows Phone just got real with 'media moments' to share everything

36

The private social network Path is slowly getting better with each update, especially after coming out of beta a few weeks ago. The app was first introduced earlier in the year and after a hiatus, it’s back with another significant update. Version 2.1 is now live in the Store, and it introduces the most coveted feature of ‘media moments.'

For those who aren’t familiar with Path’s media moments, it’s enables sharing what you’re reading, a movie you’re watching or music that you’re currently playing. It may seem like a trivial thing, but it’s a core aspect of the social network, since presumably you want to be able to tell your friends what you are up to, including entertainment. With it missing on Windows Phone, the app was never complete for most fans of Path.

Take your Lumia 1020 underwater like Cousteau with this $299 Watershot case

79

Over the weekend we reported on Fabien Cousteau’s Mission 31 (mission-31.com), where the famed underwater explorer will spend 31 days under the sea (cue the music). While super science stuff is super cool, we were more interested in the custom underwater housing for Cousteau’s Nokia Lumia 1020. The housing will allow Cousteau to take photos 100 meters / 330 feet below the ocean and to Tweet them later, marking a first for Nokia and Windows Phone.

Although we were quite jealous of the housing, Nokia in conjunction with the company Watershot Inc. have a limited supply of those casings for your Lumia 1020. Priced at $299, this is probably the most expensive case you’ll ever buy. On the other hand, if you’re a SCUBA diver, the case and opportunity it presents is hard to resist.
