First reported by Nikonrumors.com and turning those very loud rumors into reality yesterday when Nikon officially announced their new D3100 DSLR along with their new batch of lenses.

Rogers 8300 HD PVR has been on the market for over 5 years now, and a lot of users have been wondering when Rogers would release an updated HD PVR. The 8300′s capacity and technology is definitely well past being cutting edge, and with the release Bell’s dual tuner 9241 HD PVR last year the pressure was on for Rogers to bring out something new to compete with it.
