Mechanical Keyboards, Lytro's Light-Field Camera, Nokia's Windows Phones, and Reader Mail on PCWorld Podcast #127

Join PCWorld Editors Ginny Mies, Tim Moynihan, Patrick Miller, and Jason Cross as we give you the low-down on mechanical keyboards. What's the difference between these and the keyboard you probalby have on your PC today? What are the different switch types? Which ones are best?

And what's this about Nokia's new Windows Phone 7.5 phones? Are they just nice to look at, or is there a real reason to wait for them? They're going to miss the holidays here in the U.S., but Europeans should get them real soon now. Is this what Windows Phone 7 needs to be relevant in the market, or is it too little too late?

Speaking of new entries to the marketplace, there's Lytro and it's rather amazing light-field camera. Focus after you take the picture? That's crazy talk! It looks like it works, and does a few other neat things no other camera does, but there are some significant drawbacks.
