Window installer spied on N.J. family with camera he hid in bathroom, cops say

A home-improvement contractor was arrested after a Bergen County family he worked for said they found a small camera hidden in the wall of their bathroom, authorities said Wednesday.

Romeo Sanchez, 47, of West New York, was hired to replace a window in the family’s Paramus home in August, according to Police Chief Kenneth Ehrenberg.

After working in the home, Sanchez told family members he would return another time to finish putting in the window, Ehrenberg said.

One of the family members called police on Aug. 25 to report “they had found a suspicious electronic device” in the bathroom, Ehrenberg said.

“The device was later determined to be a micro camera with a micro SD memory card that had been secreted in the bathroom wall,” Ehrenberg said.

A police detective accessed the memory card and found video clips of the family’s bathroom along with videos of a bathroom in another

Google’s Pixel 5 costs $699 and packs major camera improvements

Tuning into hardware events these days feels like a surprise party someone has spoiled for you — fun, but you know what’s going to happen. So today, after endless leaks and rumors, Google today announced the Pixel 5. It costs $699 and will be available starting October 15.

At first glance, the Pixel 5 looks a whole lot like the Pixel 4, at least from the rear. This time around, however, there is only one size of the model (with a 6.0″ display), and Google has abandoned the radar-based gesture and facial recognition system, opting for a fingerprint reader on the rear instead.

This isn’t a flagship in the traditional sense.

For the first time since the inception of the Pixel line, Google isn’t using for the most powerful Qualcomm processor, but rather the increasingly popular Snapdragon 765G. That means the Pixel 5 is technically weaker than the Pixel 4

Sony Xperia 1 III could have display and camera improvements

(Pocket-lint) – Sony Mobile has already announced two smartphones this year – the Xperia 1 II and the Xperia 5 II – but rumours have already started appearing for the next generation of Xperia 1, due in early 2021.

According to AndroidNext, the Xperia 1 III will feature improvements to both the front camera and the display.

The report suggests the display will have a 15 per cent bump in brightness compared to the Xperia 1 II, whilst also offering a higher refresh rate.

In terms of the front selfie camera, it’s claimed the Xperia 1 III will have a wider aperture, which would allow more light to reach the sensor, theoretically improving low light shots. 

We’d still expect to see a 4K resolution on the Xperia 1 III’s display, along with a 21:9 aspect ratio and support for HDR. It would be great to see the bezels at

Amazon’s new hardware gives its smart home devices a digital leg up with a flying camera and more

The Echo line of devices has got a major revamp, making the largely cylindrical design move towards a spherical one



Amazon has kept its annual date of launching new gizmos and it did in plenty, though only a handful would be available in India. Two of the most interesting developments involve a cloud-based gaming service subscription called Luna and the other is a home camera drone while the vertical Echo smart speakers will now sport a spherical shape and its innards have been given a digital boost.

“Our homes have become our offices, our classrooms, movie theatres and more. We believe that our homes are made better by technology—technology that you don’t have to learn and works well for everybody, whenever and wherever you are,” said David Limp, Amazon’s head of devices and services, during a virtual event.

Though cloud gaming is a good addition in the pandemic situation but
