British firm develops 'cheapest wireless tablet' British firm develops 'cheapest wireless tablet' A British technology company claims to have developed the world's least expensive computer tablet for wireless Internet access. At a cost of as little as $35 (£22) apiece, Datawind Ltd hopes to supply a market of billions of customers, many in underdeveloped countries. The student tablet released in October costs $35, but Datawind released an updated version of the Aakash computer tablet this month for the commercial market that costs $50. It comes with more features. Aakash is the Hindi word for "heaven." The Aakash tablets reached their first users last fall under an information technology program sponsored by the Indian government. The company provided 100,000 of the tablets, which were designed at its Montreal facility, to Indian students. Customers have been contacting Datawind with "in the range of about 30,000 orders every day," said Suneet Singh Tuli, Datawind's chief executive officer, during a telephone interview with AFP. "It is huge. "It is a totally different game," he said.
I'm sure somewhere in this massive, 18-page article, AnandTech might address it :-) [www.anandtech.com] Massive? That's their PREview. Omg, I know. I can't even imagine what the review will be like. I'm trying to figure out why you are looking to spend so much money on pieces that will give you little, if any performance increases. Under the assumption you are using After Effects, there is no advantage of having 64 GB over 32 GB, or maybe even 16 GB. If you really want to get a lot more bang for your buck, you should consider building two machines and using the second as a render box which AE (and most professional tools) support by sending jobs them. This way you can build 2 machines for 1/3 the price of the one you are wanting, and getting significant performance and productivity boosts - sure the raw specs of the the other two machines will be lower at 16 or 32 GB RAM and 2700k processors, but you won't even notice the difference.

Quali antenne devo usare? [Napoli Wireless] Quali antenne devo usare? [Napoli Wireless] E' una delle domande più frequenti nei forum sparsi per la rete: “Devo connettere 2 punti distanti N Km. Quali sono le antenne ideali con prezzo/prestazioni migliori, meglio se autocostruite?” (anche se spesso sfacciatamente si chiede: “ho trovato una rete wireless non protetta, ma non riesco a collegarmi…..vorrei potenziare il segnale del mio portatile, come faccio?”) Introduzione La risposta a questa domanda dipende da come sono disposti i punti da connettere e quali eventuali ostacoli si devono superare. Prima di continuare, diciamo cosa fa un'antenna (direzionale o omnidirezionale): Un'antenna ha lo scopo di concentrare in una zona limitata dello spazio (in un “fascio”) l'energia emessa dal trasmettitore; il risultato è che l'energia non viene sprecata in direzioni non volute (ad esempio verso il cielo). La maggior parte delle informazioni che troverete su Internet si basa su un presupposto che, quasi a ragione, è dato per scontato: i punti devono essere “a vista radioelettrica”.
Estendere il segnale Wireless Esistono diversi metodi per aumentare il raggio d'azione del proprio router, in questa pagina consideriamo i metodi più semplici: gli Extender, gli Access Point e i Powerline. Ripetitore di segnale / Range Extender Immaginiamo di avere un router wifi che non soddisfa le nostre aspettative, magari riesce a coprire alcune stanze della nostra abitazione ma non arriva al piano superiore o lascia scoperte le camere più distanti dal router. In questo caso potrebbe risultare utile l'utilizzo di un ripetitore di segnale da posizionare in un punto intermedio dove il segnale arriva, la funzione di tale apparecchio sarà proprio quella di captare il segnale e dargli nuova forza ritrasmettendolo. In tal modo l'area raggiunta sarà più ampia e arriveremo in zone che non erano prima raggiunte dal segnale. Lo svantaggio principale del range extender è che il segnale ripetuto è sempre meno veloce di quello orginale, ma un utente medio spesso non se ne accorge.

This guide applies to the Current Saffire Range, and is also relevant to the Scarlett 6i6, 18i8 and 18i20 The first section of this Saffire MixControl tutorial is going to focus on the top half of the control panel (shown below), and how to use it to create custom mixes that can be routed to any of the outputs on your interface. It is worth noting however, that this section of the MixControl software has no effect on the signal being passed into your computer. When used with the PRO 40 and the Liquid Saffire 56 (pictured above), Saffire MixControl contains up to 16 mono, or 8 stereo mixes. With the PRO 24 and PRO 24 DSP, this number is halved. Let’s start by focussing in on a pair of channels in the mix window: The first thing that you need to do is to select an input for the channel. The possible inputs are divided into streams grouped by source, as shown in the drop down menu above. Pan – adjusts the balance between left and right speakers PFL – Pre-Fade Listen.

Some music applications will completely fail to take advantage of the multiple cores of a modern CPU - but which ones, and why? We find out, and advise on how you can make best use of however many cores your PC has. Over the last couple of years, the PC musician has been offered first dual-core processors, then quad-core models, and octo-core machines (currently featuring two quad-core processors) are now available for those with deep enough pockets. A Brief History In the days when most musicians ran Windows 95, 98 or ME, the question of running multiple processors didn't arise, because none of these operating systems supported more than a single CPU. In 2001, Microsoft released Windows XP in Home and Professional versions, and once again most consumers who opted for the Home version were limited to a single physical processor, although the Professional version supported two.

Eradicating PC Audio Clicks & Pops Cicks and pops can ruin a recording, not to mention causing vast amounts of annoyance and wasted time. Tracking down their causes can be far from easy – but our step-by-step troubleshooting guide is here to help. We've published lots of fault-finding hints and tips in SOS, but quite a few PC musicians still seem to be suffering from audio clicks and pops, also known as gapping. They can be caused by a wide variety of factors, from a single unsuitable software setting to conflicts between hardware devices, so this month we're providing a logical step-by-step troubleshooting guide. Introduction Before we start, I'll explain the fundamental cause of audio clicks and pops. To maintain a continuous audio stream when recording or playing back a song, small chunks of system RAM (buffers) are used to temporarily store a chunk of audio at a time. Clocking Problems If you hear occasional clicks and want to rule out clocking issues, temporarily set your soundcard to internal clock. The Last Resort Eradicating PC Audio Clicks & Pops

Load-balancing Docker containers with Nginx and Consul-Template - Belly Card Engineering We are investing a lot of research and development time into leveraging Docker in the next generation of our internal infrastructure. One of the next components we need to build out to full maturity is being able to dynamically route web traffic from our Nginx load balancers to internal Docker containers in a performant way. We are very passionate fans of the work of HashiCorp at Belly, and they recently published a new project named Consul Template. We were using an earlier HashiCorp tool named consul–haproxy to reconfigure our Nginx load–balancers based on Consul data. Consul Template is a slightly more generalized tool that was fairly smooth to adopt. Let me walk you through a proof of concept I whipped up last week. Architecture At a high level, here is the construction of the current PoC. The Nginx container listens on the public port 80, and runs Consul Template. Finally, an example backend container is included for the load–balancer to proxy to. Breakdown Getting Started Help Wanted
Consul is a powerful tool for building distributed systems. There are a handful of alternatives in this space, but Consul is the only one that really tries to provide a comprehensive solution for service discovery. As my last post points out, service discovery is a little more than what Consul can provide us, but it is probably the biggest piece of the puzzle. Understanding Consul and the "Config Store" The heart of Consul is a particular class of distributed datastore with properties that make it ideal for cluster configuration and coordination. The father of config stores is Google's Chubby, which was never made publicly available but is described in the influential Chubby paper. These specialized datastores are defined by their use of a consensus algorithm requiring a quorum for writes and generally exposing a simple key-value store. You can learn more about the challenges of designing stateful distributed systems with the online book, Distributed systems for fun and profit.

Once upon a time, you had to really keep an eye on your Android phone to make sure the battery wasn’t being depleted prematurely. Manually toggling connections, constantly adjusting brightness, and the like are basically all things of the past now—but there are still things you can do to maximize your handset’s battery life. Before we get into the how, however, let’s talk about how far Android has come. Back in Android 6.0 Marshmallow, Google released a new feature called Doze Mode, which promised to improve battery life by “forcing” the phone into a deeper sleep when it’s not in use—leave it lying on the table or desk for a bit, and Doze would kick in, saving you precious juice. Then, with Android Nougat, they improved this even further by making it a bit more aggressive: instead of kicking in while the phone is completely still, Doze now works while the phone is in your pocket, bag, or anywhere else it isn’t in active use. And so far, it works exceptionally well. The Complete Guide to Improving Android Battery Life
