Synkron - Folder synchronisation Nichicon claims smallest, quickest EV charger Japan's Nichicon says it has developed "the world's smallest and lightest quick chargers" with two units that take 35 to 60 minutes to charge. The Kyoto-based capacitor maker says the NQC-A202 charger is about 5 feet tall and 13 inches wide, weighing 330 pounds. It has an output capacity of 20 kilowatts. The NQC-A302 unit has a 30kW capacity but weighs 375 pounds. The output voltage is 50 to 500 volts DC. The company says the chargers are half the weight and size of existing models but still meet standards set by CHAdeMo , a rapid-charge association led by Tokyo Electric Power Company and Japanese automakers. The chargers will be aimed at car dealerships and other customers. As of last month, there were nearly 800 CHAdeMo rapid-charge stations on the road, with the vast majority in Japan. Nichicon has also produced on-board chargers for the Mitsubishi i-MiEV as well as the Nissan Leaf . (Via Nikkei)
XQuartz MagicPrefs Mac Gems: Little Snitch snitches on misbehaving apps Our Macs can be chatty even when we wish they weren’t. Apps, and even the OS itself, regularly reach out to the rest of your local network and to the Internet to probe, query, and blab. Little Snitch 3 intercepts these requests and presents them to you for inspection and approval. OS X’s built-in firewall, when enabled, functions based on services and applications, allowing only inbound connections aimed at particular pieces of software—for example, a connection to iPhoto’s shared-library service. As in previous versions, Little Snitch’s most obvious use is in alerting you to the network activity of applications and low-level software. Little Snitch comes configured to allow common activities—for example, Safari requesting data from port 80 (standard Web pages) and port 443 (https-secured pages)—to pass through without notice. For previously unknown connections, Little Snitch presents a dialog box that shows you the requesting app’s icon, its name, and what it’s attempting to do.
Many Tricks · Witch Witch 3 now lets you assign Command-Tab and Shift-Command-Tab (or Command-`) as the Witch activation keys. Set up in this manner, Witch replaces the Command-Tab application switcher. Witch 3 also mimics some of the Command-Tab switcher's functionality. When you press H (hide) or Q (quit) with Witch active, the action occurs immediately, as it does with Command-Tab. Witch adds more useful when-active keystrokes, too: M to minimize a window, Z to zoom it to full screen, and W to close it. In addition, A and Shift-A will jump by application (instead of moving window-by-window), J and K will move the selection down and up (as in vi), T and B (or Home and End) will jump to the top or bottom of the panel. Press F to show the currently-selected document in a Finder window. Press P (or Space Bar) to pop up a preview image, even when previews are disabled. Finally, press Comma while the Witch panel is visible to open Witch's settings—just like in most any other Mac OS X application.
Vouloir un web coopératif Par Daniel Kaplan le 27/06/08 | 17 commentaires | 17,522 lectures | Impression En 2006, Time Magazine nous nommait, nous tous, “personnes de l’année“. L’explosion des blogs, des plates-formes de partage d’images, des réseaux sociaux, donnait le sentiment d’une prise d’assaut de l’univers médiatique par son propre public. Mais en page intérieure du numéro de l’année suivante, l’hebdomadaire reproduisait presque la même couverture, avec un autre titre : “Personne de l’année : Eux“, eux les médias, les puissants, les influents. Que s’est-il passé d’une année sur l’autre ? Oui : la prise de conscience que le web “massivement relationnel” ne transforme pas à lui tout seul la vie démocratique, ni les médias. Portabilité, propriété La discussion sur la “portabilité” des profils associés aux réseaux sociaux est sans doute la plus symbolique du moment. Elle marque d’une part la fin d’une certaine naïveté vis-à-vis des acteurs du web 2.0 : Rupert Murdoch, Yahoo! La révolution des petits riens
