Tips for Getting the Most Out of OS X Yosemite

The latest OS X Yosemite has many fantastic features inside a cleaner, improved interface on the Macintosh. It’s a very big upgrade and there’s plenty to explore in the new version of Yosemite.

Wondering how to get started?

Follow the below mentioned tips and tricks for getting the most out of OS X Yosemite:

  • Turn on “dark mode”: Yosemite include a new “dark mode” which turns the menu bar, Spotlight and dock black.
  • Do a ton of stuff with Spotlight: Now Spotlight is more powerful in the latest OS X version that has the ability to search 22 types of data.
  • Manage your extensions: Applications optimized for OS X Yosemite can now offer extensions. Actions, Finder, Share Menu and Today are the four types of extensions that is added in the latest Mac version.
  • Annotate images in Mail: In Yosemite you can directly annotate images and PDFs in Mail with the Apple’s new Markup extension.
  • Sign things using your trackpad: Another wonderful advantage of Markup is the capability to sign things using your trackpad.
  • See all open tabs in Safari: With the help of Safari in OS X you are able to view all your open tabs and let you to close and also organize them individually.
  • Be untraceable with DuckDuckGo, private windows: The DuckDuckGo does not track your search results and with Safari private browsing is very much easier.
  • Quickly access your iOS device’s hotspot: The iOS 8 and OS X Yosemite makes it easier to use your iOS devices as a mobile hotspot and make sure you are logged into the same iCloud account.
  • Use Handoff for supported apps: There are various new features that allows your Macintosh and iPhone work together like Handoff. If you update an app for Handoff on Yosemite and iOS then you can seamlessly move between these devices. Enabled or disabled Handoff under General in System Preference:
  • Answer iPhone calls on your Mac: As long as your iPhone is nearby, you can answer iPhone calls and can make calls from the Contacts app or Spotlight in OS X Yosemite.
  • Record your iOS device’s screen: The QuickTime in OS X, not only record the Mac’s screen but also your iPhone or iPad’s screen could be recorded when they are connected through a Lightning cable.
  • Eradicate transparency: You have an option to make all the transparency go away on your system, just go to Accessibility in System Preferences and check the “Reduce transparency” icon. This is helpful because few app windows and interface elements in OS X are slightly translucent.


Develop and Reprogram Next-Generation Robots

The next generation robots are advancing, it’s not that they are replacing by humans but it could interact with people in much better than its predecessors. The enhanced compatibility, adaptability and lower price has led to develop and reprogram robotics projects that will be useful throughout their life time.

The Power of Collaboration

The collaborative robot is an example of next generation machine. The new robots must be programmable, so that to reuse them is the main aim of the myriad projects.

  • According to Bill Culley, president and co-founder, Empire Robotics, programming is easy and it does not require any high level training, relatively easier to re-purpose the robot.
  • The new machines generated had lessen the technical burden of robotics projects. People without any robotics experience will soon program robots and integrate them says Ms. Litzenberger.

Lower Costs, Greater Returns

Though the next generation robots are more effective but the cost have fallen than their predecessors. From many years, robots are well suited to the automotive industry but the new programmed robotics could make inroads with various manufacturers because the new technology allows the robots to be changed to run on different application which means better ROI.

Here are two of the new-breed project teams that are pushing the boundaries of robotics.

Lowe’s: By these shopping in big stores is a pleasant experience. The pilot project was created by  Lowe’s to guide customers via stores, assist to recognize merchandise within the cavernous spaces by using various speaking language. This company constantly evolved and change according to customer demands in the field of robotics technology to introduce a robot to the public.

Jeva: The Jeva robot helps people with physical disabilities. This Jeva robot will assist people in doing their house hold activities which will be a helper to consumer with disabilities. The new robot of Jeva is able to lift 2 kilograms weight and before the prototype was just finish as early as possible but now the key is to improve the design phase.

Robots have revolutionized the worlds of manufacturing and beyond.

  • In 1961, the industrial robot was the world’s first robot that followed step-by-step directions to sequence that was named Unimate.
  • In 1973, the first robot equipped with dynamic vision that was used to tight and lose the bolts.
  • In 1985, the Z-shaped revolutionary arm was developed by German engineers.
  • The world’s fastest picking-up robot was developed in 1998 by ABB in Switzerland.
  • To allow soldiers to remain at a safe distance, in 2002 iRobot deploys its multi-mission robot.
  • In 2010, Japan’s Fanuc Robotics launched the first learning-controlled robot.
  • The first robot that is able to read and respond to human is Pepper which was released in 2015.


iPhone 7-Coming in 2016

The iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s plus are only few months older but rumours are trickling out already about next generation Apple’s smartphone that is iPhone 7. But, until the fall of 2016, latest iPhone 7 won’t be introduced.

What we might see when the device is released?

The iPhone 7 is a latest Apple’s next generation Android phone which is expected to bring fundamental updates to your smartphone line-up. Here you will get to know everything about iPhone 7.

  • Radical redesign is likely to be seen in Apple’s next iPhone.
  • The design features of iPhone 7 will be very much similar to that of iPhone 6S but it is expected to be thinner than iPhone 6S.
  • The next generation iPhone could have strengthened and waterproof frame and will have 3GB RAM.
  • The upcoming iPhone will not have the 3.5mm headphone jack and may not ship a pair of Lightning-enabled EarPods.
  • Apple plans to launch two versions of next iPhone that includes the 4.7in iPhone 7 and 5.5in iPhone 7 Plus.
  • The upcoming iPhone 7 is the first to use Samsung’s OLED screen technology that provide boost in vibrancy and power efficiency and the first iPhone to feature Intel internals.
  • Wireless charging and Apple phasing out 16GB version of the smartphone with the arrival of the new iPhone 7.
  • Rumours striking, the latest iPhone 7 will have bigger upgrade in the photography department.

Wireless Earphones
The new iPhone 7 along with Lightning-equipped EarPods also be sold with wireless Bluetooth earphones. These wireless earphones does not even includes a wire that connects the left and right ear to eachother as you have seen in your traditional Bluetooth headphones. The Apple new wireless earphones does not include connective cord between left and right ear pieces.


Why No Virus on Apple?

Most of the Apple users unaware about malicious threats including spyware, virus, worms and Trojans there are several reasons behind this factor. Nor can you count the 10-second Zero Day Pwn2Own Safari exploit that got so much press attention last March. None of these, strictly speaking, were viruses. The issue comes up anew because Apple’s  AAPL 2.76%  latest Get a Mac ads are once again hammering Microsoft  MSFT 5.60%  for those “thousands of viruses” to which its operating systems and application suites are heir. And that, in turn, has led to a resurgence of comments in this space to the effect that a) Macs are just as vulnerable as Windows machines and b) the only thing that protects them is their miniscule market share.

Those thoughts, while widely broadcast on the Web, are wrong. The fact that Mac OS X represents less than 4 percent of the worldwide installed base of computers might explain why there are fewer Mac viruses. But it wouldn’t explain why there are none.

There are many scenarios for this have been widely debated by security specialists, who offer several clarifications as follows:

  1. Small market share. There is some truth to the “security through obscurity” argument. Many virus writers are motivated by the power they can command and the money they can make by seizing control of large numbers of computers. That puts a financial premium on Windows viruses.
  2. Mac OS X, with its Unix-based file system and kernel, is harder to infect with a self-replicating program. Windows, as I understand it, allows users to write run executable code outside their own protected memory space; Mac OS X does not.
  3. Viruses are going out of style. The action these days, I’m told, is in Trojans and spyware.
  4. This is not to say that OS X is invulnerable. The frequency of Apple’s security updates and the emphasis the company is putting on the new security features in Snow Leopard are proof that it is not. Maybe Apple is just lucky. Or maybe it’s better at protecting its users from infection than Microsoft.
  5. A Mac OS X virus in the wild, to use the definition put forward in a short-lived contest that offered $25,000 to the first hacker who could write one, is executable code that attaches itself to a program or file so that it can spread from one Mac to another. “In the wild” means it has infected, or is currently infecting, new machines through normal day-to-day usage.

 


What’s the Difference Between a Smart TV and an Internet TV

What is an Internet TV?

Internet TV popularly known as online television. It is the digital circulation of television content through the public Internet that can even carries other kinds of data, as opposed to enthusiastic terrestrial television, satellite television, and cable television systems which can caries only video and audio content. Online television can also called as web television, though this phrase is also used to describe the genre of TV shows broadcast only online.

Introduction about Smart TV: In these recent days most of the mid high-range TVs will allows brilliant functionality and other online features. Smart television is one of the first and simple t device user can add to living room in order to make a smart home. Clearly, in order to make use of addition features offered by a smart TV, so user need to have Internet connection at home. Most of the smart TVs have an Ethernet port on the backside to offer to plug it directly into home broadband router. Few version are even capable of accessing Wi-Fi, either make use of built-in hardware or USB dongle.

Difference between Smart TV and an Internet TV:

  • The cost of both smart TV and an internet TV various all the time, but the resolution, screen size, and LED, LCD or plasma screen regulate the price of HDTV. Instead of paying several hundred dollars for a smart TV rather use HD set without built-in Internet connectivity. Almost all the smart TVs consists of basic services like YouTube, Netflix and Hulu. If you like to intend to make use of video calls from your TV then verify prior the set can able access a service including Skype or Google TV. As a smart TV’s initial basic services won’t cost much but you need to pay it separately for individual subscriptions.
  • Suppose you buy or rent movies via through iTunes or Google TV, or use a branded package like Sony models offer, you have to pay for each rental or buy separately. If you are observing for a specific game or video service, then verify its accessibility on a TV prior you purchase the set. You can upgrade your service in the future, but you can’t guarantee that you can able to access to particular applications.
  • Apart from set-top boxes, other gadgets can smarten up your normal HD TV to certain extent. Game consoles such as the Wii, Xbox 360, and PlayStation 3 give you access to Internet-based services including HuluPlus or Netflix. Most of the Blu-ray players and home theater systems can even access Internet-based applications.


Top Cameras 2016

Digital cameras are more convenient and now a day’s many people prefer to use top-end high resolution cameras. There are many top camera manufactures in the information technology and they are with advanced, rugged and super zoom digital camera options all being existing that makes you finding the effective one. Choosing the right camera is based on brand name, high pixel and what you like from your digital camera. Maybe you are seeking for a high-end resolution camera to capture the good quality of pictures in different occasions.

Some of the top cameras 2016:

Fuji X20: This is one of the excellent digital camera that costs £480/US$600 and contains many features like 7.1-28.4mm f/2-2.8 lens, 12MP X-Trans CMOS II sensor, and filter array pattern of 6 x 6 RGGB. Whereas Fuji X10 was one of the favorite high resolution camera in the year 2012. Fuji reveals that Fuji X20 camera is come up with more than 50 improvements on the X10 that can include a new 2/3-inch X-Trans CMOS II sensor with 12 million effective pixels and a 6 x 6 RGGB filter array pattern, which combines with an EXR Processor II. The Fuji X20 also boasts a hybrid AF system and a Digital Trans Panel in the viewfinder.

Canon Powershot G1 X: Canon Powershot G1 X is designed with 1080p HD video, high 14.3MP CMOS sensor, and the price of this camera is £500/US$700. It has swivel LCD screen, 4X optical zoom, larger sensor, etc., and the zoom capacity is bit limited as compare with other Canon G-series digital cameras. A larger sensor has more surface area to receive light, improving image quality at high sensitivities and boosting dynamic range. Interestingly, Canon has opted to stick with the 4:3 aspect ratio, rather than 3:2 as most APS-C sensors are, even though the sensor in the G1 X is roughly the same height as APS-C format.

Nikon Coolpix A: It is developed with many specifications such as 28mm f/2.8 lens, 3-inch 921,000-dot LCD 16.2Mp APS-C format CMOS sensor. Nikon has given the Coolpix A the same 16.2-million-pixel sensor as the Nikon D7000, but it has left off the anti-aliasing filter to allow it to record sharper details in-camera. Aimed at serious photographers, the Coolpix A has advanced exposure modes such as aperture priority, shutter priority and manual as well as fully automatic and scene options. The tests disclose that the Nikon Coolpix A can possible to capture tiny sharp detail photos with an SLR.

 


Best Gaming Processor 2015

Intel was launched a new desktop processor in the year 2014 known as Broadwell, that has inappropriately been set back on the mid 2015. It is replaced with a fresh and an existing Haswell integrated chips, also known as Devils Canyon. The major difference with gaming processors is greatly faster clock speeds across the board, and that will make identity difference depending on gaming performance. The brand new Core i5 processors, and the Core i5-4690K are faster and are the best gaming processor for the year 2015. They are a quad-core processor which works at 3.5 GHz, with a Turbo Mode frequency of 3.9 GHz. This is completely equal to the same speed the earlier generation of Core i7-4770K and is enough to really drive gaming performance.

Pentium K G3258 Processor: This Pentium is one of the effective downsides of gaming on a computer compared with other gaming console, is the cost of the hardware. There’s certainly some truth to that, since a single high-end component can cost as much as entire console, and in some cases, more. But by carefully choosing components, you can shave hundreds off the price of your gaming PC and still enjoy most up-to-date games in high resolution without having to keep the detail settings on the lowest possible level. Both Intel and AMD sells a wide range of other affordable processors, including the Core i3 line and other Pentium chips. But none of these even approach the value for money of the Pentium K G3258, given how well it does in tests.

Core i7-4790k Processor: Central Processing Unit clock speed contributes greatly to a graphics card’s overall polygon-pushing performance, so for the absolute best frame rates at the highest possible detail settings, you want to pair the best GPU you can afford with the fastest CPU around, rather than the CPU with the most cores. It’s why people spend hours overclocking, tinkering with BIOS settings and installing large and expensive cooling systems to raise their CPU’s frequency as high as it can go. And it explains why the Core i7-4790k outperforms or equals Intel’s eight-core Core i7 5960x Extreme Edition processor in games, despite the 5960X costing $1050. Triple the price!

For gaming, as we mentioned before, more GPU power usually makes a bigger difference than an extra few hundred megahertz. If you take a look at our results, the extra performance of the Core i7-4790k means a very slim improvement to average gaming benchmark results.


Free Best PC Apps 2016

LED Vs LCD Screens – Which one is the Best for Mobile Devices?

Before discussing which is the best among LED and LCD screens for smart phones. Let’s know brief introduction about Liquid Crystal Display and Light Emitting Diode.

Introduction about LCD: Liquid Crystal Display is commonly called as LCD. It is the technology used for presentations in laptops, smaller computers and nowadays in all smartphones. LCDs provides to displays much thinner than Cathode Ray Tube that is known as CRT technology. A Liquid Crystal Display is designed with either an active matrix or a passive matrix display grid. It consume very much less power compare to Light Emitting Diode and gas-display due to they perform on the principle of delaying light rather than discharging it.

What is LED: A Light Emitting Diode is popularly called as LED. It contains with two-lead semiconductor light source that is p–n junction diode, that emits or discharge light when it get activated. As soon as the suitable voltage is supplied to the leads, electrons are possible to regain with electron holes within the circuit in order to emit or release energy in the form of photons. This process of effect is known as electroluminescence and the color of the light (based on the energy of the photon) is identified by the energy band of the semiconductor. LED’s is one of the invention done by Samsung’s marketing department.

Difference between LED and LCD Screen for Mobiles:

  • Recent days, most of the mobile companies prefer to use LCD screens and also being used every compute, laptop monitor, in the common of all TVs. LED screens are finished with amazing liquid crystals, that they also need few couple panes of glass, and a light source to emit or release effective light. Liquid Crystal Display screens allow or emit few of the most truthful colors you can find on the display screen, but it might not prefer as wide of a contrast ratio compare to a Light Emitting Diode screen.
  • LED TV’s are really very much similar to LCD Television screens. They also have a slim screen which operates Liquid Crystal Display technology. The only main change is that LED that blocks the source of the light and at the back of the LED screen. The LCD screen contains fluorescent lamps, whereas the LED screen has Light Emitting Diodes.
  • Two kinds of LED are available they are Edge lighting and Full Array lighting. With the help of Edge lighting the set of diodes are organized with outside edges of the screen.
