In this recurring column, we highlight a few items we've run across that don't merit a full story of their own but are interesting enough to bring to your attention (with more than 140 characters). This time we look at Airnef, battery charger lights, an iOS 9 review and a Google matching donation.

  • Airnef 1.00, an "open-source utility for downloading images and movies from your WiFi-equipped Nikon camera," has been released with support for both Nikon and Canon WiFi cameras. Written in Python, this version of the free utility includes a GUI front-end and a command-line app, although future plans including merging the two. Thom Hogan has a brief review.
  • In Petty Annoyances, Thom Hogan rants about the status lights on battery chargers, complaining "it always amazes me when companies that should know better get the little things wrong." Welcome back from vacation, Thom!
  • While you're waiting for iOS 9, Rene Ritchie has written a comprehensive iOS 9 Review accompanied by a four-minute video of "the biggest highlights of iOS 9."
  • Google has announced it will match your donation for humanitarian relief for refugees and migrants up to about $5.5 million for a $11 million total.

More to come...
