New camera for narcissists has front-facing LCD

I wrote a column for last month headlined, "Does mobile tech breed narcissism?" The answer to that question is yes, and some more than others.

A new $350 Samsung digital camera called the TL225 helps you take pictures of you. In addition to a big LCD screen on the back, the TL225 has a small LCD on the front, so you can look at yourself while you're taking pictures of yourself. Isn't that special?

Actually, a lot of couples would find this camera very useful, especially if they can't find a third person to take a picture for them. Now couples can extend their hands out in front of them with their camera and see what picture they're taking.

Not sure how that would be narcissistic.

Becuase they need to feed in to that crowd of people who use MySpace and Facebook to put up pictures of themselves in the mirror. Who don't realize they should just have a friend hold the camera. Or use the timer button.
