How Apple & Samsung mobiles stand on Specific Absorption Rates (SAR)

Posted by on in Mobile & Tablets | Comments Off on How Apple & Samsung mobiles stand on Specific Absorption Rates (SAR)

I was wondering how Apple and Samsung where doing in regards of SAR (Specific Absorption Rates) values for mobile phones so on this post I am going to share with you where some of their most known devices stand.

Mobile phones use high frequency electromagnetic fields for voice and data transmission. When you talk to someone with your mobile phone, the energy of these fields is party absorbed in the head (unless you are using a headset) or by your body if the device is for example, in your pocket.

SAR is measured in Watt per Kilogram, in order to avoid adverse health effects, the specific SAR for mobile phones cannot exceed 2 Watts per Kilogram. Currently there are no mobile phones in the market that exceed this recommended number, still I think it might be a good idea to consider the SAR value before making a purchase, or not?

GARDENA Robotic Lawnmower R40Li R70Li R80Li Installation Videos and manuals links in English

Posted by on in Guides & Help | Comments Off on GARDENA Robotic Lawnmower R40Li R70Li R80Li Installation Videos and manuals links in English

We acquired the Gardena R40Li robot lawnmower as it was on sale some days back and we needed a solution for maintaining our garden.

When I started checking the online videos from Gardena with the installation instructions I couldn’t find a proper YouTube playlists with all the videos together, also, the link to chapter 4 was broken, so I decided to compile all the links in this post so you dont have to waste time finding them if you need them.

Reolink Argus 2: a wireless camera that promises to keep an eye for you

Posted by on in New Tech, Security | Comments Off on Reolink Argus 2: a wireless camera that promises to keep an eye for you

I am searching for a couple of wireless cameras to keep an eye at my house when I am not there or even if somebody jumps into my garden when I am asleep.

There are several options out there, but very few of them actually offer to be truly wireless from a power perspective. A company based in Hong Kong called Reolink has recently launched the Argus 2 line and besides the specs that I will share below their main asset seems to be the price which seems to arrive to disrupt the market. At literally half the price of what the Arlo’s Pro 2 set of 2 cost you could potentially have 2 cameras with arguably similar results and without the need of a wireless base to connect them to.

Matias Wireless Aluminum Keyboard review, a great concept but with quality issues

Posted by on in Reviews | 1 comment

I recently decided to switch back to a MacBook Pro 2017 15″ and as I use an external screen with it I needed a nice keyboard and mouse. The mouse part was an easy quick win as I got the Logitech MX Master 2S and works great.

The keyboard part though required a but more analysis and testing, my old Logitech keyboard was already getting some keys fading out after almost 6 years of use. So I started searching for other non classic options, this is how I ended up finding the Matias.ca keyboards. They are not commonly known but the design which was in line with the Apple keyboards but at a better price caught my attention.

Belkin Thunderbolt 3 Express Dock HD Review, a half-baked dock with horrible support

Posted by on in Reviews | 2 comments

I purchased this dock to use it with my fresh MacBook Pro 15″ 2017. This is one of the few docks advertised able to power the 85w needed by the laptop to work properly. If you are interested only on the technical review, skip the immediate below section where I describe how difficult was to buy the thing in the first place.

Automatically move photos to directories or folders based on exif date taken

Posted by on in Reviews, Soft | Comments Off on Automatically move photos to directories or folders based on exif date taken

I like to share when I find a very useful application. For some time now I´ve been organizing and de-duplicating the huge collection of pictures I currently own. With today´s mobile phones and the great quality of pictures and videos they can take, its not a surprise to see a lot of files accumulating.

I had a folder with more than 45.000 pictures and videos captured with my iPhone alone, I am sure I am not alone on this boat 🙂

Is it possible to get Apple´s attention? Lets try with your help ;)

Posted by on in Apple | Comments Off on Is it possible to get Apple´s attention? Lets try with your help ;)

They say hope is the last thing a man should lose, and here I am hoping Apple fixes an issue that is affecting a lot of people by creating a petition.

Accessing network shares over AFP/SMB on the MacOS Operating systems work very bad.

Listing files on a NAS its terribly slow, no matter if its over Wifi or Ethernet. Specially if you have a large amount of files on the folder.

Windows has no issues accessing the same shares with Windows Explorer with blazing fast speeds (almost instant). An example can be seen on this video I shot some time ago. The problems persists today (August 2017).

Thunderbolt 3 Docks that can charge your MacBook Pro 2016/2017

Posted by on in Desktops & Laptops, Opinion & Ideas | Comments Off on Thunderbolt 3 Docks that can charge your MacBook Pro 2016/2017

 I made some research which took quite some time, so I thought on sharing it in this post so you can also benefit of the information.

I was looking for a Thunderbolt 3 Dock which would allow me to connect my external ultra wide screen, keyboard, mouse, Ethernet network and some other things to the dock and then with the plug of one single Thunderbolt 3 cable from the dock to a 2017 MacBook Pro 15″ which I ordered. I would like to be able to connect all the things AND charge the notebook at the same time without the need to plug the power adapter of the Mac.
 
You have to be careful because not all docks charge a MacBook Pro 15″ (they dont have enough power).
The only models that would do so until today (July 19th 2017) are:

Rewfeed another Internet scam, how it works

Posted by on in Guides & Help, Security | 2 comments

You might start seeing a lot of social media posts about #Rewfeed (can go as “RevFeed” too) and how incredible this website will give you USD 250 for free to start investing on their own “Social Media Investment platform”. The main selling point is not only that they will give you the 250 to start for free but that you will pay it back once you reach your first USD 10.000 :). They claim that they invented a “social media analyzer” that lets them predict which companies stock´s will go up or down based on people´s perception.

Sounds sweet right? Actually too sweet to be true. Check the analysis of the scam below:
