By using the battery, you can run this device is not currently available grid (PLN). This battery is claimed to last for up to five hundred print document sheet.

u9-435-hp150Meski your physical form, HP still includes a variety of connectivity for easy printing of various devices. You can print directly from the camera using Pictbridge connection, also can print from a memory card slot thanks to the existence of SD and MMC. Any USB port makes HP Officejet 150 Mobile can be used to access and print the content of external media such as flash disks and hard disks. Memory card and flash drive can also be used to store the scanned file. While in the case of the scan function, its use must install the software first included in the package.

In addition, the device also supports printing directly from the smartphone. Unfortunately, given only limited support for Windows Phone and Blackberry platforms. While the operating system is quite popular smartphones such as Android and iOS are not supported. All of which functioned through the touch screen-based fee that is responsive. “Shortage” is in another physical form that are made as short as possible: not supplied buffer to hold the paper. As a result, you will be a little bothered by the scattered papers.

Although the print speed is quite normal, to say the performance is not too slow. Copy and scan process is done using sheet-fed technology. This technology will scan the pages of the paper. When finished scanned per sheet of paper, the results can be printed directly pindaiannya. When PCplus count, nicks exact same time even though the documents are processed differently.

The Water Proofing

Sony Xperia Z’s lips at the Consumer Electronic Show (CES) 2013 in Las Vegas in early January. Because this phone has the security features that is waterproof.

U3-436-SonySmartphone dimensions 139 x 71 x 7.9 mm screen has 5 ˝. With such a wide screen, the display explores the experience is more freely, though it would be difficult to operate with one hand. Smartphone flat box shape does look pretty, it’s just feels less comfortable grip. This smartphone is also layered glass on each side. Those who would like smartphones bodied clean, need frequent cleaning traces of the hand attached to the glass. Dressings glass also makes it feel a little slippery when held.

The placement of the power button and the volume of the right middle, making it easy to reach buttons when holding, either left or right-handed. Micro-USB port, a micro-SIM, microSD, headset jack and has a special cover so that water does not enter into these holes.

Sony Xperia Z screen uses the Bravia Engine 2. 1080 × 1920 pixel image displays sharp colors. When used under strong light, the screen can still display a good image. This screen does not use IPS panels, so that the sharpness of the picture is only valid when it is in plain sight. Once tilted, the color looks a little foggy. The screen has wet finger tracking, so it can still operate even if your fingers wet. But, when in the water, he still does not respond to touch.

One more thing to note is hot. When using a smartphone intensive, especially when connected to the internet, so it feels very hot. Although the heat was tolerable hand, the heat is quite disturbing because the effect on Li-ion 2300mAh battery that is growing quickly depleted. This substantial battery can last all day with moderate internet usage. In addition, the Sony Xperia Z also has stamina mode that turns off the internet when the smartphone is not active. Internet will be active again after Sony Xperia Z used.

This smartphone’s camera using RS 13 megapixel Exmor sensor, the resulting image is quite good. Sony Xperia Z adds many exciting features, such as burst and HDR function. There are also picture effects such as panoramic images and a variety of filters to be creative with the pictures taken. One favorite is the sketch effect. The camera is also capable of recording HD quality video.

Audio business, Sony presents the expiration monaural speaker and stereo sound with headphones. The resulting sound is quite crisp innate headphones in ears, though not too special. While the default mono speakers generate sound quite comfortable to hear. In tests conducted PCplus, Sony Xperia Z can still operate despite being dipped into the water. Turn on the music, until a call. It’s just the sound of the speakers so there selantang usually after dyed. Wait three hours, the speakers back to normal.

Whether you’re a tinkerer with a custom rig, or you just aren’t sure why your computer’s fans are running, checking your CPU usage is a pretty common task. Instead of using a boring on-screen activity monitor though, you can hook up your machine to a car tachometer for constant feedback.

This hack comes courtesy of ivancreations, who created an entire PC monitoring block from real-world components. The full instructions are on his blog and needless to say, they’re pretty complicated. If you can makes heads and tails of his plans though, the results speak for themselves.

While the tachometer is my favourite part of the build, he also wired up some LED light grids to illustrate other vital system information as well. If you think you’re up to it, or just want a closer look, be sure to check out the source link.

Last year, many manufacturers began to play with the seven-inch tablet and the price competition is getting fierce. Google hit the market with the launch of the first Nexus tablet, named Nexus 7. Now, the biggest search engine in the world announced the second generation of its flagship tablet. Changes in what is offered?

Nexus 7 2 7 Generation Google Nexus 2, Pack Full HD Screen And Processor Quad Core tablet pc computer news
Still manufactured by ASUS and uses soft touch material on the back side, second-generation Nexus 7 carries a smaller design. Although the screen size remains the same, the Nexus 7 II appear slimmer and lighter. Compared to previous Nexus 7, bezel or frame is now thinner 2.8 mm, 1.8 mm thinner body and lighter weight 50 grams. To display sector, the resolution increased to 1920 × 1200 pixels with a density of 323 ppi or 50% denser than the predecessor model.

Also a significant increase in performance. The second-generation Nexus 7 processor quad-core Krait Snapdragon S4 Pro with 1.5 GHz speed, capacity is doubled to 2GB RAM, and Adreno 320 graphics cards. Unlike the previous model, this time carrying the Nexus 7 rear 5MP resolution camera that can record 1080p video and 1.2 MP sensor on the front of the camera.

The Gateway DX4870-UB2B ($499.99 list) is a basic tower desktop PC that checks all the boxes on what you need from a new desktop, particularly if you already have a LCD display that you’re carrying over. It’s speedy for its segment, has capacious storage, will let your family keep many documents open simultaneously, and it’s relatively inexpensive. Unlike the $300 bargain basement specials, the DX4870-UB2B$499.99 at Best Buy comes with a modern Intel Core i3 processor, dual-band Wi-Fi, and lots of drive space. It’s expandable, so it can grow with your family. It’s not ground breaking, but it’s a solid choice with a great bang for the buck, so it’s our latest Editors’ Choice for budget desktop PCs.

Design and Features
The DX4870-UB2B follows other Gateway desktops, looking almost identical to the last black tower Gateway DX4870-UB17$329.99 at Newegg.com ($500). Like that model, the DX4870-UB2B comes in a tower chassis with black panels all around, including the plastic front panel and metal side panels. The system’s tray-loading DVD burner is hidden, but two of the system’s USB 2.0 ports, SD card reader, and audio jacks are exposed on the top front of the chassis. In the back, the system has four more USB 2.0 ports, two USB 3.0 ports, PS/2 mouse and keyboard ports, HDMI, VGA, Ethernet, more audio jacks, and two connectors for the included WiFi antennas. It would have been nice if the front USB ports were USB 3.0 to accommodate USB hard drives instead of the slower USB 2.0.

The inside of the system is certainly expandable, with plenty of space to move around for future upgrades. The system has space for two additional drives: one optical 5.25-inch bay and one 3.5-inch hard drive bay. Theoretically, you could shoehorn another three to four 2.5-inch notebook class drives in the same space, provided you have the correct brackets to hold the drives. The motherboard has four free SATA ports to service these drives. The system also has two DIMM slots free, along with a slot for a PCIe 3.0 x16 graphics card and two additional PCIe 2.0 x1 expansion cards. One PCIe x1 slot is occupied by the included 802.11a/b/g/n Wi-Fi card, which will serve most users well. This is an improvement over other budget systems like the Lenovo IdeaCentre Q190$416.03 at antonline.com ($400) and Zotac Zbox ID83 Plus$448.99 at Amazon ($473), both of which don’t support 5Ghz WiFi, only the more common and crowded 2.4GHz channels.

The last consideration you have to make for expandability is the system’s 300W power supply. While sufficient for additional drives and minor expansion cards, 300W will be insufficient for a high-powered discrete graphics card with Nvidia’s or AMD’s highest end GPUs. You can of course swap out the included power supply, but most budget system buyers never open their chassis, even if they are tempted by the system’s expandability. Bring a screwdriver if you dare, because you’ll need it for the case door and the drive bays. At least the internal card slots are tool-less.

Like other Gateway systems, the DX4870-UB2B comes with quite a few pre-loaded applications and utilities. These include 7digital, Zinio, Kindle, eBay, Chacha, Netflix, NewsXpresso, Amazon, Tunein, Hulu Plus, Xbox Games, Cut The Rope, Stumbleupon, Skype, Merriam-Webster, Britannica, Spotify, Microsoft Office (ad), Norton Internet Security), and Wild Tangetn games. That’s a lot of pre-loaded apps, and most if not all are available for free from Microsoft Windows Store. While you may want to spend a few moments uninstalling all these programs, fret not, since the system has a capacious 1TB hard drive with plenty of free space left. The DX4870-UB2B comes with a standard one-year warranty.

Performance
The system comes with a third-generation Intel Core i3-3240 processor, 6GB of DDR3 memory, Intel HD Graphics 2500 (integrated in the Core i3 processor), and a 1TB 5,400rpm SATA hard drive. All of these components mean the system is plenty fast on our benchmark tests, certainly faster than the Lenovo Q190 and the Zbox ID83 Plus. That said, there are systems in this price range that are faster, notably the Polywell Nano i3-Q7 ($595) which trades physical and storage space for SSD speed, and the Acer Aspire AT3-600-UR11$449.99 at Newegg.com($600), which has a discrete graphics card and slightly more powerful processor adding to its performance totals. Check the performance chart link to see the final numbers, but suffice to say the DX4870-UB2B has the performance to keep your family happy for the next five years or so.

A few years ago a team of researchers from Brown University made headlines after they successfully demonstrated how a paralyzed woman who had lost the use of her arms and legs could control a robotic arm using her brainwaves. In a video, Cathy Hutchinson imagines drinking a cup of coffee, and the robotic arm brings the cup to her lips.

The scene is amazing, but also a little disturbing. Hutchinson is connected to the robotic arm through a rod-like “pedestal” driven into her skull. At one end of the pedestal, a bundle of gold wires is attached to a tiny array of microelectrodes that is implanted in the primary motor cortex of Hutchison’s brain. This sensor, which is about the size of a baby aspirin, records her neural activity. At the other end of the pedestal is an external cable that transmits neural data to a nearby computer, which translates the signals into code that guides the robotic arm.

This method, known as BrainGate, pretty much defined state-of-the-art brain-computer interfaces at the end of the last decade. If the idea of a rod-through-the-head computer interface makes you cringe, you are not alone.

For some time, a small team of researchers at UC Berkeley has been working on plans for a less invasive, wireless monitoring system. Earlier this month, they released a draft paper: “Neural Dust: An Ultrasonic, Low Power Solution for Chronic Brain-Machine Interfaces.”

Dongjin Seo, a graduate student in UC Berkeley’s electrical engineering and computer science department, authored the paper under the supervision of senior faculty members, including Michel Maharbiz who has famously created cyborg beetles for the US Defense Department.

Seo said the researchers’ goal is to build an implantable system that is ultra-miniature, extremely compliant, and scalable to be viable for a lifetime, for brain-machine interfaces. “With neural dust, due to its extreme scalability, this framework can be applied for Obama’s BRAIN initiative, which necessitates large-scale, parallel, and real-time monitoring of neurons,” Seo explained.

The Berkeley researchers propose to sprinkle the brain with tiny, dust-sized, wireless sensors. This would reduce the risk of infection from wiring up scores of sensors placed throughout the brain and limit the trauma to one initial operation. During that operation, the skull would be opened, and sensors would be inserted into the brain. At the same time a separate transceiver would be placed directly under the skull but above the brain. The transceiver would communicate with the sensors via ultrasound.

Another battery-powered transceiver outside the skull would receive data transmissions from the chip inside the skull and supply wireless power to it.  As the paper notes, this type of power transfer is already used in a variety of medical applications, including cochlear implants. Seo said the amount of power being proposed is within FDA and IEEE guidelines.

The idea of neural dust immediately sparked the imagination of futurists after the paper was published on arXiv.org on July 8. “The brilliance of this system is that it could potentially allow scientists to see what’s going on with thousands, tens of thousands, or even hundreds of thousands of neurons inside the brain at once,” wrote Ramez Naam, a senior associate at the Foresight Institute and author of “More Than Human: Embracing the promise of biological enhancement.”

But would neural dust have practical use for the growing industry of mind-controlled computer games and brain training apps? Jon Cowan, founder ofNeuroTek, is dubious. NeuroTek’s Peak Achievement Training has been used at the U.S. Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs, as well as at other Olympic centers from China to Norway.

“[Neural dust] doesn’t have much practical promise because of the surgery it would require,” Cowan said. “I don’t think they’ll find too many people that would volunteer for it.” Cowan noted existing ways for measuring brainwaves that rely on external sensors may be crude, but they’re effective enough for today’s applications.

“We really believe this is a practical system and, more importantly, we think this is potentially a powerful framework for achieving what Obama has announced,” Seo said. Still, he pointed out that the paper is a draft. “It’s a concept paper,” he said. “It’s a theoretical study of what we think is possible in the realm of neural recording.”

By publishing the paper on arXiv.org, an online collection of preprints of scientific work, the team is hoping to spur involvement and feedback from scientists in different fields. Lots of challenges remain to be overcome before neural dust will be ready for live testing.

Sprint HTC 8XT retail package

I was given an HTC 8X at the Windows Phone 8 launch event and loved the design that seemed to disappear in your hand. Sprint hasn’t seen much Windows Phone love, but has two decent options for customers. I’ve been using the HTC 8XT for a couple days and wanted to share some first impressions.

The HTC 8XT from Sprint brings a mixture of HTC’s best with design aspects of the HTC 8X and 8S, along with features from the excellent HTC One. It is available now from Sprint for $99.99 with a 2-year contract.

Hardware

It comes in California Blue and at first glance looks like a slightly larger 8S with a different shade of color on the bottom button area. Specifications include:

  • 4.3 inch 800×480 pixels resolution Gorilla Glass display
  • 1.4 GHz dual-core processor
  • 1GB RAM
  • 8GB integrated storage with microSD card (up to 64GB supported)
  • 8 megapixel rear camera and 1.6 megapixel front camera
  • HTC BoomSound front facing stereo speakers
  • Bluetooth 3.0, 802.11 a/b/g/n WiFi, and NFC
  • 1,800 mAh battery
  • Dimensions of 5.2 x 2.6 x 0.39 inches and 4.9 ounces

As you can see this is more of a mid-range device with the lower resolution display, 8GB of internal storage, and processor. Then you see high end aspects with the HTC BoomSound speakers, Beats Audio, NFC, and 1GB of RAM.

Like the HTC 8X, the 8XT feels great in your hand and if I was a Sprint customer looking for a Windows Phone then this would probably be the one. The camera has been improved over the 8X with a more attractive design around the lens and new HTC Camera utility. The HTC Camera utility gives you some different effects to use when you capture your photo, just like the HTC One camera utility. You also get the ability to capture photos in burst mode with the software then selecting the best shot so you can make sure to capture the best photo. You can also capture still images while recording video, something again seen on HTC Android devices.

Software

The HTC 8XT launches with Windows Phone 8, which is a very functional OS that has enough apps to compete with iOS and Android. You will find all the typical Windows Phone 8 functionality in the 8XT with some HTC-specific experiences included. Windows Phone 8’s latest Data Sense utility is included with Office, OneNote, Wallet, and more. Don’t forget you can also download and install HERE Maps from Nokia on the 8XT.

HTC includes their weather/news/stocks utility, handy flashlight app, photo enhancer, unit converter, and utility to manage space on your device. As I mentioned earlier, they also provide an HTC Camera app similar to what Nokia does with their special apps. I haven’t taken a ton of photos yet, but so far I am pleased with the camera performance and functionality of the HTC Camera application.

Sprint also includes apps and services, but like all Windows Phone devices you can easily remove anything you want, unlike on Android devices. Sprint apps and services include Sprint Music Plus, Sprint TV and Movies, Visual Voicemail, and Slacker Radio.

I was pleasantly surprised to find Telenav Scout on the HTC 8XT since I find this application to be quite useful on my iPhone 5. I did not know they had a Windows Phone 8 client and after trying it on the HTC 8XT I saw it is also available on T-Mobile Windows Phone devices so I installed it on my new Nokia Lumia 925.

First experiences

The HTC 8XT is a solid Windows Phone device for Sprint customers. The device feels excellent in your hand and the resolution looks good on a 4.3 inch display. All the user reviews on the Sprint site show nearly all five star ratings so it seems Sprint customers like the device so far.

The light weight and curved design of the 8X always appealed to me and the 8XT continues that look and feel. With the soft touch material all around, the 8XT doesn’t slide around and the California Blue looks great.

I understand that there is still no LTE coverage in the Puget Sound area so I won’t be able to test out those speeds unless I travel in the next couple of weeks. With Seattle being the home of Microsoft and Windows Phone, I find this lack of LTE to be rather disappointing.
