TSA Profiting from your Uncharged Electronics

IpIPhone Battery Low indicationTSA Profiting from your Electronics, Making Big Bucks on Devices Left Behind

The Transportation Security Administration has decided to make you flying experience even worse by banning uncharged electronics from any flight entering USA. This includes your phone, laptop, IPod, Tablet, MP3 Player and any electronic device that is powered by a battery. This is just the beginning as over time it will become a standard security procedure for all flights. This action suggests that TSA is trying to seize your electronic device and profit from it. Think about it, tell me that you dint have a laptop at some point that had dead battery but you used it anyways by just connecting it to AC power. Well you can’t bring that laptop on the plane anymore.

TSA already uses explosive trace detection scanners that will sniff out and detect any explosives and any potential chemicals that can create a explosive. So why does TSA  go after uncharged Electronics? TSA explanation is that the electronic device needs to have at least power to power on during screening. If the electronic device powers On then you are good to go but if it does not then you will have option to leave the device behind or miss the flight.

Is this the way TSA wants to increase security or just cash in on electronics that will be left behind? TSA claims that terrorists can replace the battery with a explosives and trigger it by turning the device ON. Even if that was the case would that put people the stand in line for screening in Risk? The Screening lines are packed with people that want to get on their flights, yet TSA is not considering that they create risky environment for those people.

Now that the Policy is in effect travelers will need to bring chargers for their devices with them which in fact create more baggage to check and more ways to smuggle anything thru security. TSA however has not mentioned anything about check in luggage. So you can still bring your uncharged devices that way but you know how it is with check in luggage, you never know if it will ever reach your destination. I would be really upset if my phone was in the luggage because it was uncharged and somehow got lost. My photos and contacts lost, not to mention my precious phone. This would be extremely upsetting, yet it happens all the time. For those that traveled and airlines lost there baggage know how hard it to get airlines to reimburse you for lost language. They are on with paying the first $100 to replace the suitcase but not the content of it.

Lesson to be learned from this is to always make sure you electronic device is fully charged and carry a charger whenever possible. Don’t let TSA profit from you and your electronic devices.

Canon 5D Mark III and Nikon D800 Pro DSLR Comparison

Canon 5D Mark IIIvsNikon-D800-Front

Canon 5D Mark III and Nikon D800 Pro DSLR  Comparison – Which one Is Better?

Are you a die hard Canon user or a dyed in the wool Nikon fan? There are some biased photographers that swear by their favored brand and claim to be un-compromised when it comes to their beloved camera brand they have used since first being bitten by the photography bug. It may be that most brand snobs don’t realized that it can come across as snobbish (and insulting) when they respond with “I only use [insert brand here] I’d NEVER use [insert your brand here]”  when asked what brand of camera they use.

Canon-Vs-Nikon

But is there really a significant difference that makes one brand better than the other? Or is it all a matter of taste? Both Nikon and Canon companies are based out of Japan have been rated as #1 in camera sales over the years, they both have produced high quality equipment and are backed up with quality assurance and excellent warrantees. Their range in styles are DSLR to compact point and shoot. Whether your a novice who just wants the simple camera for the occasional family vacation or birthday party, or a professional veteran photographer whose lively hood depends on his/her gear, each of these industry leaders can provide the right camera for your purpose.

 

Since both are used by leading award winning photographers around the world saying one is better than the other is just really a matter of preference. It all depends on tastes and what features you can’t live without.

Canon 5D Mark III top

Megapixels

Nikon D800 DSLR offers an impressive 36 megapixel sensor, while the Canon EOS 5d mark III offers a mere 22 megapixel that’s a 14 megapixel difference for a camera that’s costs is about the same.

 

Video

More photographers are wanting their DSLR to have a high definition video feature. And it’s pretty impressive that some of the latest action packed block buster movies were recently made using the Canon 5d Mark II. Nikon’s D800 is no slacker, it’s been used for TV broadcasting in serval studios from TV shows to nightly news. Both of these camera systems have models that offer full HD recording with range of frame rates, available headphone audio monitoring & stereo sound recording, manual controls for exposure, that are capable of high quality high-definition footage, pretty impressive. However, Canon first came up with a excellent focus tracking system, its Duel Pixel CMOS AF used with STM lenses that’s been designed for video, the autofocus is smooth, fast and an accurate.

Canon-5D-Mark-III-Back

Body Style

The design and placement of dials, controls, flip screens and shutter release buttons differ from Canon and Nikon, they’re almost always opposite. For example, Canon places their quick control dial at the rear of its camera while Nikon has two dials one in front and one in the back of its grip and a D-pad on the rear of its camera. When it comes to zooming and focusing, exposure, and mounting the lens, they’re at opposite ends. So as to why most photographers have a biased camera brand when it comes to handling, it’s no wonder that why there’s a favored brand, if one were to switch back and forth between the two models (in one photo shoot for example), it’d be a recipe for frustration and disaster. However, that being said, there are professionals that carry both and are used to switching back and forth, but with novice or hobby photographers it can be frustrating at best. When it comes to body styles and placements of knobs, dials and controls this is all a matter of tastes, one is not better that the other, so it’s just a matter of personal opinion and preference which is better than the other.

 

Flash Options

For years Nikon has had some kind of secret they’ve patented to ensure perfect and consistent flash exposure, while Canon users struggle with the variation of frame to frame exposure. Just recently Canon’s 5D Mark III has perfected this flash exposure issue and is now equal to Nikon’s. The only draw back is Nikon still out performs Canon by way of user friendly flash settings. While Nikon has easy to find and select options, Canon requires some research and thorough reading of their manual to find how to change settings like flash sync and speed.

 

Hybrid Autofocus

Most DSLR cameras have two distinct types of autofocus speeds, a slow contrast detection or a fast phase detection. The fast autofocus is best used for shooting through the viewfinder, while the slow autofocus is generally best for live view autofocus. Each of these systems are different and non-compatible, until Canon created an advanced system, its 70D features a Duel Pixel CMOS AF than enables an 80% of the sensor area to be used as phase detection so you can switch seamlessly from video to picture. It makes a great camera for film use. Unfortunately Nikon’s hybrid AF system is limited to Nikon series 1 in their compact system.

 

TNikon-D800-Backouchscreen

Canon and Nikon now both carry a vari-angle or tilt and swivel, monitor, but Canon offers a touchscreen and a vari-angle monitor the EOS 60D followed by EOS 600D and 70D, 100D and 700D. Nikon does not have this double feature for the monitors for their DSLR cameras.

 

LCD

While Nikon and Canon have the same screen dimensions, their ratios differ, Canon has a 3:2, the same as it actual images, while Nikon’s differs so image appears smaller on screen. Canon also has a very specific coating on it’s screen that resists oil smudging from fingers while Nikon doesn’t. The materials the screens are made from also different, Canon has a high-quality screen that’s anti-refection and easy to view in daylight, Nikon remains uncoated and difficult to view in outdoor light.

 

Data Embedding

Nikon has more advanced features that lets you embed your images without having to upload to a computer first. Canon has just caught up with Nikon on this, where as before one would have to load the images and use special software to embed images on their PC.

 

Uploading

Nikon offers easy data transferring without any software to install, folders can be created within the camera settings itself for easier transferring too. Canon still requires special software you must install in your PC before you can transfer your images.

 

While there are other features where one is better than the other it’s always best to talk to a professional and ask why they prefer their favored brand. There is always a trade off and if you’re on a tight budget it’s best to try out each before you decide on which you’ll be investing in. If you offer to do an internship with a professional, you can get hands on experience and an insight to the differing features to these two amazing camera systems. You may find that a Nikon fits better in your hands, or you may discover a you favor Canon’s LCD touch-screens, but the only sad part is, as stated before is deciding what your trade-off is going to be. Happy shooting!

Working with Cayosoft Admin Assistant

Coyosoft Admin AssistantCayosoft Admin Assistant

Lately, we heard about a product from Cayosoft, called Admin Assitant, that claims to be able to render reporrting and eule enforcement for Acfive Directory, Office 365, and Windows Server.

Working with Cayosoft Admin Assitant

Cayosoft Admin Assitant utilizes a fairly simple console. A large number of built in templates are contained by the console, on which rules can be based. For instance, the computers -AD Computers (Report) template is used to compile a list of all of the computer objects in the Active Directory. There are few different options for each template. A preview query can also be performed, you can run the ruke, or you can also enforce the rule.

The preview option simply displays the query results within a window, in case if you are wondering. The result can be seen on the screen, or can be exported to a CSV file.

After you run a rule, the output is written to an HTML based report. When a rwport is run, Admin Assistant displays a message , telling yoj that records may be E-mailed or they might be displaye din the Reports folder, depending on how the rule is contoured.

Although it is useful to be able to run a rule manually, Cayosoft Admin Assitant is really all aboht automation. By enforcing rules, automation is attained. Yoh are also given the option to schedule to run on a periodic basis, when you select the Enable check box for a rule.

For the new templates to be downloaded at any time, Admin Assistant is designed. More essentially, administrators are given the ability to create custom rules, which can be based on existing temlpates or administrators can build rules entirely from scratch.

We find Admin Assistant to be a solid product that does exactly what it is supposed to do.

How Good Are the BOSS Waza Craft Pedals From Roland

boss Waza Craft PedalBoss Waza Craft Pedals From Roland is it any Good?

 

If you’ve been playing around with your guitar for awhile or you’ve got your own synth setup going on, then there’s a good chance that you’ve got some Waza pedals sitting around somewhere. Roland has a pretty good setup with them, but the new Waza craft pedals that are coming out this Summer are going to kick your sounds up to another notch! Roland has retooled the overdrive, delay and the blues driver to make the sounds clear, concise, and solid.

What Makes the Waza Craft So Good?

 

The BOSS pedals are so good because they still utilize digital and analog components in the construction of the unit. The analog circuits are discreetly woven into the pedals in such a way that the average person isn’t going to know that they’re there… but it’s there. In some ways, this is the epitome of what Waza means. Referring to the technique of art, these pedals are going to add another level of depth to the sounds that you can produce.

 

It begins with the stomp that’s on the blues driver. It adds a nice level of grit to the sound that you’re creating and really captures the lower frequencies to bring them out. The pedal is able to pick up the subtleties of a bass that’s being picked, yet has the speed to work with a synth setup without lagging behind on a fast sequence. The standard sound mode is nice and it’ll even pick up on volume changes fairly well.

And Yes… Roland Has Brought Back the Delay!

There’s a good chance we’ve encountered each other at some point along the way in the quest to get the old DM-2 delay pedal because it’s so good, but this new Waza delay is even better. It nails the sounds perfectly and you get up to a 300ms delay on the standard mode. The custom mode is A LOT better, however, because the delay reaches up to 600ms and it has an old school analog tone that gets put into the sounds from the guitar or synth.

 

As for the overdrive pedal, the final product is falls in-between a British clean type of sound with an infusion of American crunch. The sounds are captured with an increased range of tones and the gain isn’t so overpowering that you’ll end up hearing more feedback than music. It’s definitely a premium stomp if you love the overdrive sound and tone and the analog amplifier adds just a bit of extra depth to the final sounds.

 

If you’re looking for new pedals this year to influence your live sets or your compositions, then the Waza Craft  series from Roland will help to develop the frequencies of your sounds so your tones are pure, solid, and true. They’re highly responsive, work well with the rest of your pedal board, and will help you create a customized sound that will become your trademark.

 

These pedals are definitely going to change the way you think about music.

Using Citrix VDI-in-a-Box 5.2 or VDI Controller Advantages

Firewall system. Computer Network.What is Citrix VDI-in-a-Box 5.2?

Citrix VDI-in-a-box functions as a VDI controller. It sits as a VM appliance, in your data center, and tosses sessions between a breathtaking number of devices; Microsoft Hyper-V 2008 R2, VMware 5.0 update 1+, Citric XenCenter 6.1 hypervisor, and many others. Citrix uses an enhancement of RDP protocols by Microsoft, HDX protocol. With Citrix VDI-in-a-box you cannot virtualize hot sessions for non-Windows operating systems, and you will need a Microsoft volume licensing agreement to have Windows virtual licensed desktops available to you, a DHCP server, data store, and a naming convention for hosted Virtual Machines.

Although both companies, Citrix and VMware, have extra products, VMware native instance image considerations still lead a bit. Once you get the images correctly installed, you will have to license these; has a different licensing constraint. To prevent resource drainage during peak events, like a remote meeting time or morning start up time, Citrix allows VDI-in-a-box to be configured. For Citrix running Citrix VDI, Citrix recommended server infrastructure descriptions are less detailed than VMware. This might be due to the fact that Citrix runs as a connection broker over various different flexible hypervisor families, Whereas VMware Horizon View is run in a more controlled environment.

Images are delivered to remote based and local desktops without a hitch, and the draft images allow you to choose either Citrix HDX protocol or Microsoft’s RDP protocol. For a dramatic effect, high latency connections or low speed, you can also limit colour depth. You can also choose between hosted VMs use of network or device disks, smart cards, printers, or USB devices.

Security concerns are outside the scope of this product and should be buttoned down before the installation; Citrix VDI-in-a-box facilitates multiple hypervisor family platforms. Chances of misuse seem to be very limited as most organizations use the best security practices.

Tips to Help Keep Your Laptop Cool

wpid-20140715_144142.jpgKeep Your Laptop Cool

 

It is important to to keep your laptop cool if possible. Keeping it cool will help extend the life of your laptop as well and improve its performance.All electronic workings generate heat when they are running; your laptop is no different. If you are thinking, why does your laptop overheat more than your desktop? Well, there are two major reasons for that: As laptops are much smaller than desktops, all the electronic components are crammed tightly, and as they closer together there is not much room left for heat dissipation. Moreover, as laptops come with more powerful processors and your OS requires more processing power to run, extra heat is generated inside your laptop case.It is important to keep your laptop cool so that it will last longer.

 

To maintain your laptop and get rid of overheating issues, you need to do some basic maintenance, It is important to keep your laptop cool so that it will last longer.
1. Check your laptop’s fans: As the fans are packed inside your system and opening up your laptop’s case means your warranty goes void. You could download fan diagnostic software, which is a tool to make sure that your fans are working properly.
2. Clean air vents: Laptops which use airflow aid to cool have intake and exhaust vents to throw out hot and take in cool air. Clean these vents using a compressed air blast, or damp cloth.
3. Check BIOS settings: Download and update your BIOS settings, check the website of your laptop manufacturer for the update; make sure you take a complete backup of your data before updating.

 

There are some external tools and add-ons too to help you deal with overheating issues.
1. Do not use your laptop on your lap, or any soft surface; it impedes airflow through your machine.
2. Try using a laptop stand, it maintains distance between the surface and the bottom of your laptop and forms an air gap for sufficient airflow.
3. Try using an Aluminium stand which would act as a heat sink; actively drawing out heat out of your laptop helps cooling it.

4. there are also gadgets that you can but to keep your laptop cool.
