My, my, hey, hey lossless audio is here to stay thanks to JustBoom, a set of Raspberry Pi hats that connect to the mini computer and offer high fidelity audio playback and amplification.The $24 hats including a lossless DAC, a mini-amplifier, and a high-resolution audio output with COAX and optical audio out.If you, like Neil Young, require the utmost fidelity in your music playback these three low-cost solutions should at least let you play back your lossless music files without much fuss.Obviously you can t carry around a couple bare circuit boards so you can either buy or 3D print a case for your little semi-portable DAC unit.What would it take to turn this into a Pono?Well, presumably you d need a little power supply and LIPO battery, some kind of screen, and an input system to make it portable.

Med en ganska nylig uppdatering kan Facebook Messenger i din telefon skicka och ta emot textmeddelanden precis som den sms-app som kom med telefonen.Men den här uppdateringen tvingar dig att välja Messenger som standard för sms.Den blandar också varenda sms-tråd med Facebooks meddelandelista i kronologisk ordning, vilket kan göra konversationslistan förvirrande och svår att använda.Dessutom kan du av misstag råka skicka meddelanden som kostar riktiga pengar om du har alla typer av samtal på ett ställe.Trivs du med att ha det så är det inga problem, men om det här förstör din Messengerupplevelse är det enkelt att inaktivera sms-funktionen i Facebook Messenger och fortsätta att använda din vanliga sms-app.Öppna Messenger i telefonen och klicka på ikonen med gubben längst till höger i menyraden.

That means every landing page must include stellar imagery, compelling textual content, and related media — all designed to get visitors to take action.On mobile, people are willing to spend even less time.That s tricky, especially since so many small businesses operate with minimal staff.According to Econsultancy, half of online shoppers will try just once or give up immediately when looking for help before making a purchase, and 71 percent expect some level of assistance within five minutes.Digging further, researchers found that getting issues resolved quickly and in a single interaction far outweighed the ability to contact companies for help via social media.The self-servers are thrilled to find a knowledge base, how-to articles, community forums, and other relevant content.

While getting ready for bed more than a month ago, my six-year-old excitedly told me about hearing the Batman smells variant of Jingle Bells.A few nights later, she giggled through a version that ended with and Robin does ballet!and asked me why, in the song, the Joker got away.I answered that while Batman is an incomparable athlete per the old DC Who s Who entries , he s still a normal human who doesn t have superpowers.She s seen some cartoons at school that have featured the Justice League and some of the characters have gotten all mashed up in her brain; I ve been painstakingly trying to separate the Martian Manhunter from Green Lantern.The Flash is a standout for her—she got the coolness of his superspeed immediately.
