    News from Apple this week

    But this translator can integrate with other apps and it is part of the base iOS and well all know what happens when Apple releases something that works well enough (Apple Maps may never be good enough) There's been apps for that on all platforms for some time now and Apple made it part of iOS...

    Off the top of my head: Widgets App Clips App Library Cycling directions in Maps PiP Wind-down mode Translate The last one made my brain hurt so I'll provide a link here: https://www.gottabemobile.com/common-ios-14-problems-how-to-fix-them/ I think the key here is that the actual release...

    News from Apple this week

    It has a whole list of features (at least ten) that have been popular on Android for years. Otherwise, early reports suggest that it has a considerable number of issues. What is it with public beta programs that makes them so incredibly ineffective?

    Given that all of these events are virtual, they can theoretically fire them off pretty much any time they're ready.

    Does this article about 8K HDR TVs with glasses-free 3D hold any water to it at all?

    The big question of 8K is why? How big must the screen be and how close must you be sitting to it to optically discern the higher pixel count? I know I couldn't fit such a screen in my home and if I were sitting that close to the moving wall, I'm pretty sure I would be queasy most of the time...

    The CableCARD experiment is over

    While it hasn't yet made much of a splash, it appears that the FCC has finally given up CableCARD as a failed experiment. https://www.nexttv.com/news/fcc-abandons-cablecard-navigation-devices-rule-review This perhaps doesn't bode well for TiVotees and fans of the HDHomerun Prime as the FCC...

    Does this article about 8K HDR TVs with glasses-free 3D hold any water to it at all?

    While I understand that it is your mission to take pot shots at the incumbent video services at every opportunity, the question is about 4K (and perhaps ultimately 8K) and your reasoning doesn't really support your position on MPVDs or 4K. If there were a market, there would be a lot more broad...

    Does this article about 8K HDR TVs with glasses-free 3D hold any water to it at all?

    Relative to the number of titles, 4K makes up a rather small portion of what's currently available. The premium movie channels offer some of their exclusive content in 4K but most isn't. Same with Amazon Prime and Netflix. The percentage is very low. Sports-wise, the 4K options are...

    Portable Spectrum Analyzer

    The inset picture shows the upper input is labeled "HIGH" (240-969MHz) and the lower "LOW" (100KHz-350MHz). What is difficult to guess is why there's a bidirectional arrow on both ports. The R&L website has a more comprehensive rundown of what's there. Not sure why they chose 50 ohm in that...

    Router Connection Issue

    Does your LAN go down (in whole or in part) when this happens? You shouldn't get wound up about your ISP if your LAN is broken. If the switch is going south, Netgear will repair or replace at their discretion. If an unmanaged switch takes out your LAN, it has almost certainly failed (I've...

    I'd wait and see if the technical specifications translate into a great picture. Sometimes bleeding edge is just bloody.

    Does this article about 8K HDR TVs with glasses-free 3D hold any water to it at all?

    In terms of content, 4K isn't really here yet so I think it is pretty unlikely that 8K will be something everyone will want anytime in the next 10 years or more. 8K currently appeals to those who have been falsely convinced that they're future proofing their TV purchase. It is likely that none...
