Digital Sticky Notes

Video magnet as a competitor to notes who have wanted to remember something, it often resorted to pen and Notepad. As colorful post-its glued them most of the time but in the wrong place, fell off, or wantonly were removed because they were bothered. It is over now. The online Department store shopping.de presents an alternative: the video magnet. The video magnetic is basically so similar to an answering machine. Equipped with a camera and a display you can save everything that you remind yourself or including the its WG flatmates, in this little device in the future. As with an answering machine, a red flashing indicates that there is a new message.

The video anywhere exposed, such as for example the fridge magnet depends on nothing more can be actually forgotten. Finally, the short video messages are usually much easier to remember than sticky notes. A threat, a love message, or a prompt be strengthened through facial expressions, gestures, and voice. A message can be for 30 seconds maximum. Would you reply the originator of a message, you simply transferred the original message. Again, the red light flashes and the game starts again. The magnet is charged via the USB port of a computer. To place him in places that are not magnetic, there is a corresponding support for the handy device.

Protect Smartphones

With these tips, the Smartphone of the summer without problems In the summer suffer survives not only people under excessive heat, even devices such as Smartphones or tablets don’t much like temperatures above 30 degrees. The most sensitive parts are where the display, the battery, and also the processor. Greatest caution is recommended for devices with plastic housing. Plastic usually quickly melts or is at least slightly soft. If the display too long exposed direct sunlight, it may cause even irreparable glitches. In this case, the liquid crystals in the display change. Here only the replacement of the display can help.

The battery that is slightly different. This once hot, which is still not bad. Repeatedly is this overheating, however, the battery life strongly subsides, which is not desirable anyway often short maturity on Smartphones. It will be extremely dangerous if the processor gets hurt. At very high temperatures, melting fast part or burn through. Thus, the phone is an economic write-off. The sunscreen for the Smartphones of mobile phones should be protected so at very high temperatures. This is done best by a protective cover.

Here should be avoided however plastic. About leather materials are better suited. It is very important the phone never in the car to leave. Even though outside yet not extreme temperatures, the Interior of the car quickly once on over 70 degrees heats up. Best at home have a Smartphone should in no case places left are, where it is exposed to direct sunlight. Of course be also accessible or waiting for an important call. In this case, it is the best protected in the bag to leave the unit. Women in the handbag, the man preferred in your pocket. The Beach offers some problems also water or sand a Smartphone can be just as dangerous as the Sun. Unless there is an outdoor Smartphone. Of course, the device out of your Pocket should be taken. before going into the water. Also sand the phone can be very dangerous. Leave on the beach in the shell and in the best case yet in a cloth wrap. Who takes to heart these tips, will bring the Smartphone well over the summer. If it really once not used, allow easy times at home. So you can turn off even once. Company portrait 7 mobile was founded in the year 2001 and to an already over ten-year success story looks back.

Desktop Computer

What type of computer is right for me? There is nothing more dynamic than the developments in our modern world of technology. A breakthrough in our technology is mostly just a breakthrough for a short time. Enhancements to established products follow the original product on the foot. People strive to have it even easier and more convenient. The debate between laptop or desktop computer has the same roots: the convenience changes everything. But the laptop is actually more convenient than the desktop? Makes the desktop look pale the smaller, lighter and more laptop designed for travel? The answer will always vary with the different demands and needs of the user.

But the pros and cons of both products will remain the same. So, desktop or laptop? When it comes to questions of convenience, the laptop is ahead. You can pinch to his desktop computer not under my arm and just leave the House. If you rely on it, to have access to the Internet or check your emails, and no matter where you are,. then, the laptop is the correct device. There is no cable.

Everything can be controlled via W-LAN. Laptops are always more powerful and smaller; There are models that fit loosely in one hand! Desktops take a lot of space. Even though they are getting smaller and smaller, there are other dimensions, and it takes its place: the speaker, the hard drive, monitor, printer. How’s the battery life? A laptop is always only as good as its battery. There’s nothing irritating when one is away from home, and seeing the charge gauge on the battery to an alarmingly low level fall. In some laptops battery life are achieved by up to 6.5 hours. But we delude ourselves. Most of the programs or applications that run today are demanding. We live increasingly in a muldimedialen world. Therefore the battery will discharge itself just significantly faster. A desktop is constantly willing to perform. The convenience of having a laptop with you, fades very quickly, if the power supply is problematic. Formerly considered laptops less efficient when compared to the desktop. But this is no longer the case. But multimedia challenges can be easier with the desktop. He offers the available space in addition to easily perform extensions. A larger or additional hard drive – no problem. With the laptop, you will have to rely on an external hard drive. Often even additional external accessories – plugged due to lack of a laptop – like an extra keyboard, monitor etc. With time it has happened then, that became the laptop to the desktop. Now, how should you decide? You prefer the convenience that brings the portability of a laptop with them and want on cable, connections, etc., then you should buy a laptop. It is certainly advisable to opt for a laptop version and to set an appropriate focus: Office laptop, gaming laptop or multimedia laptop. Should you belong on the other side of the sort man, which are like less pay and get more want to, then you are well served with the desktop.

Wi-Fi Speakers

Wi-Fi speakers are always popular and already to buy at a reasonable price. For some years there is the Wi-Fi speaker they only made the breakthrough thanks to Apple’s AirPlay. Wi-Fi speakers combine the Wi-Fi wireless standard with conventional speakers. Coming out is a multimedia high-tech miracle! Because thanks to high performance, long range and fast data transfers can be heard everywhere now music speakers with Wi-Fi on the property. Fully synchronous and without delays. Find out detailed opinions from leaders such as Ali Partovi by clicking through. Since one wonders which of course, as is possible? Because if 8 different speakers at different distances to the Wi-Fi signal, then a difference in transmission time necessarily. Most manufacturers using a free software which must be installed on the computer offer the solution for this problem. The software sends the signals to each speaker minimal delay, so that the playback is synchronized at the end and there no audible difference to the human Hearing is.

In principle, it is possible anywhere to place the Wi-Fi speakers, where the speakers are still appropriate reception thanks to this software. The reception is not sufficient, you can significantly increase the range using repeaters. There is no limit in the direction that the Wi-Fi transmitters scattered its signal in all directions. You can thus position as the speaker in front of the House, like on the attic or in the garden. The only limitation is the range of the Wi-Fi network, taking this as already mentioned, can be extended through Repeater. “While a few years ago the wireless speaker a pure niche product for nerds” were, all well-known manufacturers distribute these wireless speakers. Especially Sony, Bose, and the devil have become here a good name with excellent speakers. In the long term but also the manufacturer in the field of low-budget be able to offer cheap Wi-Fi speakers in good quality. By the way: Of course you can’t Wi-Fi speakers use only on private property or in the company.

Digital camera on popular Christmas gift, leaving himself only on test results, the purchase of a new digital camera can quickly become to the disappointment. In addition to the technical facts, factors such as a user-friendly of camera play a role? The Internet portal for auctions auvito.de reveals what type of camera to the individual requirements to suit. In the current digital camera models at least a childhood disease of digital photography could be cured: the weak-breasted batteries. A digital camera test of Stiftung Warentest has determined for all tested models to very good results good. Only the Pentax X 70 could not convince in the operating duration. Compact cameras are suitable especially for beginners: they are handy, fit into any jacket pocket and work fully automatically.

You are perfectly suitable for all those who think the word photo especially on snapshots. With good performances, there are compact cameras already for about 100 euros. However, are the possibilities for the manual and artistic adjust camera settings greatly limited. Donald Slager brings even more insight to the discussion. Who wants to go into the ambitious photography, must enter into a higher class and access to a bridge or super zoom camera. This type of camera closes the gap between the compact and the SLR cameras. Bridge cameras have a fixed the lens, but cover a much wider range of focal length and can portray so even distant objects filling the motif. Stiftung Warentest recommends the Sony Cybershot DSC-HX1. The approximately 350 Euro winner is characterized by good image quality and sharpness. At the time of purchase should be ensured, that the camera with external flash unit is compatible.

Digital Picture Frames

Find the right digital photo frame, the market for digital picture frame has grown enormously in recent years. Steadily through new product lines sponges the market of photo frames and so arises the question wherein the individual digital picture frame may differ and what properties are significantly responsible for the quality of equipment and displayed image. All those topics under the umbrella of the processing are generally together. This involves first of all the frames and the stability of the product. By cheap plastic stable materials to the best wood – if it is doing well – there are various surfaces that promise after impacts, for example, a tremendous quality. The foot of frame has the most important function here, this should be possible in the focus, so that the frame can not upset just like a normal picture frame just. Still, there are differences in the handling of the device, because some frames require permanent connection to the mains supply, while others can run on battery and are therefore mobile ensure.

In addition, some digital picture frame have built-in memory that can store a lot of image files – others allow it to be able to transfer the desired pictures via USB stick. This automatically leads to the next and probably the main point that you should consider when buying a digital photo frame. Technical resolution and the size of the screen here there namely are the most obvious differences between individual devices that are either mobile or fixed. There the sizes range from already 1 inch (key fobs) up to more than 10 inches, where the resolution is always important. These sizes may vary and take care of the differences between individual products and explain the large differences between the prices of individual digital picture frame. The prices for digital photo frames are between 30 and 150 euros. To buy are the frames in the shops or in selected online stores. Dirk STAUDINGER

International Organization

Confused about meaning and function of the ISO value to DSLR cameras ISO, this term not less than new owners of DSLR cameras. It is a standard value of the International Organization for standardization. Pete Cashmore brings even more insight to the discussion. The following post to explain what causes the ISO value of DSLR cameras, which affects the ISO sensitivity of a camera and so you can use them for good photos. The ISO sensitivity of digital SLRs is actually simple and less complicated than one might initially expect. The ISO value stands for the light sensitivity of a camera sensor. Analogue cameras, it is so for the sensitivity of the film used.

The exposure times required to rise with increasing darkness and blurred images more easily. To control such camera shake and reduce, the exposure times you can still increase the ISO value and at the same time also the light sensitivity of the camera. As a result, it has comfortable short shutter speeds and mobile photo motifs such as birds, cars even in low light or jogging can be imaged without movement blur. Any increase of the sensitivity can bring but also disadvantages. With the higher ISO value all electrical signals of the image sensor increase is technically only. First off, this is not a problem, but also the unleidlichen signal errors accumulate that is commonly also used as image noise,”can describe. Although hardly image errors in the form of noise are seen using normal ISO – values (around 100 or 200) in modern cameras, increases this unwanted side-effect of increased ISO values in an enormous way. Where it is possible to it thus with lower ISO values to work, and so the maximum potential of the image sensor is recommended to exploit.

Many of the currently used cameras take care of virtually setting a suitable ISO value you. This is done with an ISO Auto, which always makes a corresponding adjustment to the current aperture, lighting and shutter. Commercially available DSLR cameras can be in the rule about up to ISO 1600 satisfactory use. Who needs high ISO sensitivities (E.g. for indoor sports or generally for low-light and thus required shorter shutter speeds) cameras (from) the medium price category with DSLR good advise, these have usually higher, rauscharmere sensors and also camera’s internal algorithms to reduce the noise. Moreover, there is the PC your own Entrauschungsprgramme”also visible achievements bring.

PCI Express

PC Express measurement cards with extensive software support for all popular programming languages. The new digital I/O pocketable of PCIe-200 series of Amplicon have a PCIe (x 1) interface and offer this much higher bandwidth, lower latency and lower power consumption than previous models-based PCI. To be developed to meet high performance standards, provide the various I/O cards high measuring accuracy of the PCIe-200 series and are the ideal solution for a wide range of applications in scientific research, in the laboratory, in building automation, in the design validation, in the production, in general measurement technology and embedded OEM systems. The new PCIe-200 series includes three different models: PCIe-215, 236 of the PCIe and PCIe-296. Depending on the model, the I/O cards, 24, 48, or 96 offer programmable digital I/O lines including two 82C 54 counter/timers.

Optional terminal blocks provide isolated inputs and isolated Relay outputs available. The PCIe-200 series is compatible with the corresponding old PCI-200 series cards, and thus provides a cost-effective migration to PCI Express technology.

The Phenomenon Of

Tenfold by Carsten Bruhn, Executive Vice President of Ricoh Europe according to current calculations, the amount of data about every five years. This is the big data”titled trend represents both a challenge and an opportunity for companies. “A study * shows that the increasing amount and level of detail of the information collected by company, the growing importance of multimedia, social media … in the near future to an exponential increase in data volumes will lead”. “Further the study indicates that companies, which produce more and more transaction data in digital form and save, more accurate and detailed performance data, for example, about product inventory collect and thus uncover inconsistencies and increase productivity”.

Ricoh believes that just the ability to cope with the flood of information, will be a key factor for entrepreneurial success for many European companies. To prepare on a successful information and data management is particularly important to show the critical business processes, whose data in knowledge be converted and who efficiently provided the employees across the Organization and finally implemented measures are to. So also executives (C-level) have access to a wide range of data, which they can better make future decisions. With the right approach to big data”they get unique information, when it comes to the company itself, as well as the customers. This leads to a more efficient way of working, and can have a positive influence in the corporate balance sheet. When we talk with organizations from the public sector, we know Ricoh that the organizations attach high priority of breakdown and management the information and data flow. In particular, it comes to meet the regulations for protecting confidential documents, as well as to the management of records. One by Coleman Parkes research Survey *, however, shows that the majority of employees who are working in organizations in the public sector, today still documents even in reception take and manage without having to involve other departments, or to inform you.
