The Sony a6500 is a faster and more stable version of the Sony A6300 with probably the best image quality and features of any camera in the world.But sometimes a camera needs more than just an awesome spec list so let s take a look at the Sony Alpha A6500 Mirrorless Camera ReviewWith 4k video, IBIS in body image stabilization, 11fps RAW bursts, great low light performance, log video, and a host of other options, it s easy to see why the A6500 is one of the best cameras around beating both mirrorless cameras and the best DSLR cameras from Canon & Nikon.The focus system is snappy and accurate with tons of flexibility and control.Unfortunately, the touch AF is not as snappy and I found it extremely unreliable.Focusing in video is also amount the best around but the lock on AF feature I use the most which locks on your subject and follows them around the frame does not work while shooting 4k video.

While running Yardsale, a previous Y Combinator startup based around essentially making it easy to sell your old stuff, Ryan Mickle had the benefit of talking to alumni and colleagues to figure out what to use to build it.But one of the basic services he used to run it ended up costing more in the long run as the app ran into critical problems when it came to some transactions — forcing Mickle and his team to essentially duct tape fixes on top of it.He and his cofounders needed a more consensus decision as to which services to use for their startup.So he s now started a small project called Founderkit, which is designed to tap the Y Combinator community as well as other communities like TechStars to dig into whether a service is good enough or not to deploy when starting up a company.The products you ll find on it are often the ones you d expect — Slack and Stripe are highly-rated, because of course they are popular in Silicon Valley.But the goal for Founderkit is to get people to give honest opinions and keep things carefully curated, Mickle said.

2016 lär inte skrivas in som det säkraste året i internethistorien.Vi har rapporterat om otaliga säkerhetshot, och 2017 ser knappast ut att bli bättre.Ett sätt att skydda sig mot lömska hot är att ha sunda lösenordsvanor.I årets undersökning från PC för Alla svarade 4 000 läsare på frågor om sina lösenordsvanor.55 procent av de tillfrågade uppger att de byter lösenord mer sällan än en gång per år.Att det inte är någon bra idé att använda samma lösenord till fler än en tjänst har vi sett gott om exempel på genom åren.

If you do any amount of cooking, you re going to need to cut, chop, and slice, and that means you re going to need a surface on which to perform all of that cutting, chopping, and slicing.Cutting boards come in a varietyof materials, and picking the right one can make all the difference.I m partial to wood, both for aesthetics and functionality, but each type of board has its time and place.A tenuous case can even be made for glass.Plastic: I used to think that plastic was the safest, most hygienic choice for cutting boards, and reserved my wood board for cleaner tasks like chopping vegetables.Even though a plastic board can be disinfected pretty effectively in the dishwasher, plastic boards with dings and dents are impossible to disinfect with handwashing, but they are easy to toss in the dishwasher, which is a nice perk.

HPE today announced that it has acquired data management platform SimpliVity for $650 million in cash.SimpliVity is one of the many companies in this space that are focused on what is often called hyperconverged infrastructure.That sounds like somebody buzzword — and it definitely is — but the core idea is pretty sound: hyperconverged systems combine compute, storage and networking into a single system.SimpliVity s flagship product is the OmniCube hyperconverged infrastructure appliance, but the company has also worked with Lenovo, Dell, Cisco and Huawei to bring the software part of its solution to their servers, too.For HPE, the idea here is clearly to expand its existing infrastructure, automation and cloud services with SimpliVity s platform.This transaction expands HPE s software-defined capability and fits squarely within our strategy to make Hybrid IT simple for customers, wrote Meg Whitman, the President and CEO of Hewlett Packard Enterprise, in today s announcement.

The new and improved default OS for the Raspberry Pi isn t just for hobbyist computer boards any longer.Thanks to an experimental version of the Linux-based software for PCs and Macs, you can use it to reinvigorate an old laptop and get a few more years out of an ageing machine.As we ve explained before, there s a lot to like about the Pixel Pi Improved Xwindows Environment, Lightweight OS.It looks great, comes with most of the applications you need, and isn t very demanding on system resources—which means it runs well on the older hardware you ve got lying around.To get started, you ll need to get the Pixel ISO image, which you can download here, on to a DVD or USB stick.If you re going for the latter option, Pixels creators recommend Etcher; for the former, you can use the tools built into Windows 10 via the burn to disc option in File Explorer or macOS via Disk Utility .

I just started a job at a small business and am in charge of marketing the local branch.Currently, the owner has the shop girls hand out leaflets to people passing by when the shop is not busy.It's in an area with lots of foot traffic, so I'm not opposed to this idea necessarily.But I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions for an alternative marketing activity the girls could be doing as well?Perhaps something more targeted to our demographic 18-35 year olds, middle - high income, group activities As is typical for leaflet handouts, most of them end up in the trash can 5 feet away, and it can be quite demoralising for the girls having to do this several times a day.

Autofill turns a whole lot of tedious typing into a breezy single-click affair, but the simplicity may come at a cost.Viljami Kuosmanen, a Finnish web developer, has discovered that when filling out information on Chrome, Safari or Opera web browsers, autofill may provide the website with stored information beyond what it's seemingly asking for.You may just see a box for your name and email address, but if you choose to autofill these two data fields, you might actually be sending over details about your address, phone number and even credit card.Kuosmanen has created a simple website where you can witness the sneakiness for yourself.With only a name and email entry field to fill out, it seems unassuming, but through the use of several other hidden fields the site ends up collecting a whole heap of other details as well.Instead of using these details for nefarious purposes, Kuosmanen s site just gives you a raw HTML printout of the data that autofill has so generously provided it with.
