  1. You do not have to have a smart TV so you can watch movies on your phone. It's not a bad idea to watch movies on a tablet or smart phone, but it's not even very comfortable. Even if you do not have a TV in the house, you can still connect to it with your phone to use a larger screen for your favorite movies and series. 1. A cable would be enough You need a TV with an HDMI jack and a USB-C-HDMI cable for your phone. From that moment on, you can see what you do on your phone on your TV without needing a WI-FI connection or a password. 2. A streaming gadget D you do not want to hear anymore cables and adapters, because you already have too many, then there are some streaming devices that will help you connect your phone to your TV very easily. You can try Roku Streaming Stick, ChromeCast Miracle or AirPlay (for those who have iPhone or iPad). 3. Through a console If all you want is to look at Netflix on the TV, there is another way you can do it, even if you do not have a Smart TV, and without including the phone in the equation. it needed an internet connection and a TV-set console. Nintendo Wii, Playstation 4 and Xbox One can be very simply used to track Netflix on your levator
  2. In brief: Cryptocurrency exchange QuadrigaCX’s 115,000 customers have lost a combined total of $145 million, after CEO and founder Gerald Cotton unfortunately passed away from complications caused by Crohn’s Disease last year. The company has less than half a million left in cash. A common practice among cryptocurrency exchanges is to store customers' coins in cold wallets, which are offline and encrypted and can only be accessed by those who know the password. This protects them from hacking and virtual theft but does mean that the entire value of the wallet rests in the hands of those with the password. An affidavit filed by QuadrigaCX on January 31 reveals that there are 26,500 bitcoins ($92 million), 11,00 bitcoin cash ($1.3 million), 11,000 bitcoin cash SV ($707,000), 35,000 bitcoin gold ($352,000), 200,000 litecoin ($6.5 million) and 430,000 ether ($46 million) stored on Cotton’s encrypted and inaccessible laptop. While the company has hired several security researchers (read: hackers) to attempt to access the laptop, they’ve had very little success so far. The company’s stance has gone from “Quadriga’s inventory of cryptocurrency has become unavailable and some of it may be lost” to “most, if not all” of their customers will suffer damages. To try and buy time to access the laptop and possibly to liquidate the company, QuadrigaCX has applied for a stay of proceedings from the Supreme Court. Ideally, it could let them access around $50 million or so that is currently trapped in a legal battle with a Canadian bank, though a good portion of that money is their customers', too. Since it’s leaked out that customers may not get their money back, many have taken to Reddit and Twitter to request proof of death and expressing their anger that the money was so mismanaged. QuadrigaCX employees have admitted that they’re even receiving death threats 😱😳😠
  3. We have come a long way from the standard Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) and cryptic error messages that plagued us during the Windows 95/98 and Windows 2000/XP days. The error messages have become a bit more detailed over the years, but they can still be a bit nonsensical and difficult for your average Windows user to decipher. Fortunately, it looks as though Microsoft is looking to make things a bit more informative for us mere humans with the Windows 10 19H1 Update (which will reportedly be called the Windows 10 April 2019 Update). In the last Windows Insider webcast, Microsoft showed off how it will make things much simpler. As you can see in the image below, this is the message that users would currently see when trying to perform a major Windows 10 upgrade As you can see, the user is presented with a message telling them that an installed program is incompatible with the newest version of Windows 10, but there's a reference to a Knowledge Base article that the average user wouldn't understand or even know how to look up. In addition, the KB document isn't hyperlinked, leaving many to likely scratch their head. On top of that, the only actions that the user can do is go Back or hit Refresh – and hitting Refresh is just a fruitless endeavor. There's no option to quickly and easily address the underlying problem: the need to uninstall the program Microsofts update dialog box in the Windows 10 April 2019 Update (19H1) -- Click to Enlarge With the Windows 10 April 2019 Update, the KB article tied to the error message will be accessible with a "Learn More" hyperlink. That way, users will be able to read up more on what's causing the problem. Secondly, Microsoft is providing additional actions that the user can perform. Now, the user will be given the option to uninstall the app straight from the error dialog box, or upgrade the software to a newer, compatible version [if available]. It's a small change, but one that provides a much cleaner interface for the user while being informative at the same time. According to Microsoft, it will also allow app providers to directly contribute details regarding what options/updates are available to consumers, which will be displayed in the dialog box. Microsoft is far along in development of the Windows 10 April 2019 Update and has been pushing out new builds at a steady clip to Windows Insiders. In fact, the company just recently opened up its Skip Ahead feature for Windows Insiders which will allow them to start testing the Windows 10 19H2 Update
  4. Attempts to incorporate a key scientific study into global climate talks in Poland have failed. The IPCC report on the impacts of a temperature rise of 1.5C, had a significant impact when it was launched last October. Scientists and many delegates in Poland were shocked as the US, Saudi Arabia, Russia and Kuwait objected to this meeting "welcoming" the report. It was the 2015 climate conference that had commissioned the landmark study. The report said that the world is now completely off track, heading more towards 3C this century rather than 1.5C. Keeping to the preferred target would need "rapid, far-reaching and unprecedented changes in all aspects of society". If warming was to be kept to 1.5C this century, then emissions of carbon dioxide would have to be reduced by 45% by 2030. The report, launched in Incheon in South Korea, had an immediate impact winning praise from politicians all over the world But negotiators here ran into serious trouble when Saudi Arabia, the US, Russia and Kuwait objected to the conference "welcoming" the document. Instead they wanted to support a much more lukewarm phrase, that the conference would "take note" of the report. Saudi Arabia had fought until the last minute in Korea to limit the conclusions of the document. Eventually they gave in. But it now seems that they have brought their objections to Poland. The dispute dragged on as huddles of negotiators met in corners of the plenary session here, trying to agree a compromise wording. None was forthcoming. With no consensus, under UN rules the passage of text had to be dropped. Many countries expressed frustration and disappointment at the outcome. "It's not about one word or another, it is us being in a position to welcome a report we commissioned in the first place," said Ruenna Haynes from St Kitts and Nevis. "If there is anything ludicrous about the discussion it's that we can't welcome the report," she said to spontaneous applause. Scientists and campaigners were also extremely disappointed by the outcome. "We are really angry and find it atrocious that some countries dismiss the messages and the consequences that we are facing, by not accepting what is unequivocal and not acting upon it," said Yamide Dagnet from the World Resources Institute, and a former climate negotiator for the UK. Others noted that Saudi Arabia and the US had supported the report when it was launched in October. It appears that the Saudis and the US baulked at the political implications of the UN body putting the IPCC report at its heart. "Climate science is not a political football," said Camilla Born, from climate think tank E3G. "All the worlds governments - Saudi included - agreed the 1.5C report and we deserve the truth. Saudi can't argue with physics, the climate will keep on changing." Many delegates are now hoping that ministers, who arrive on Monday, will try and revive efforts to put this key report at the heart of the conference. "We hope that the rest of the world will rally and we get a decisive response to the report," said Yamide Dagnet. "I sincerely hope that all countries will fight that we don't leave COP24 having missed a moment of history
  5. Now that macOS Mojave has taken the crown from macOS High Sierra, you’d be forgiven for thinking that no one cares about that old mountain-themed OS anymore. But, if you think about the fact that macOS Mojave requires more recent hardware, you’ll realize that plenty of users will be using macOS 10.13 High Sierra for a long time. And, while macOS High Sierra may have faced its own problems, like password vulnerabilities and other security issues, back at launch – those days are over. Apple has effectively fixed all those lingering problems, and macOS High Sierra grew into quite a respectable macOS release. Plus, Apple more than made up for any launch issues with that new file system – not to mention those built-in photo-editing tools. When all is said and done, macOS High Sierra faced – and still faces, to a certain extent – the same problems that Mountain Lion did, following Lion. It brings some interesting changes, but doesn’t do anything all that new and exciting. So, without further delay, let’s dive into everything there is to know about macOS High Sierra. macOS 10.13 High Sierra release date Apple revealed macOS 10.13 High Sierra at the WWDC 2017 keynote, which is no surprise, given Apple’s tradition of announcing the latest version of its Mac software at its annual developer event. Yet, it wasn’t until September 12 that Apple revealed that the full release of High Sierra would launch little more than a week later, on September 25. There was a developer version of the operating system you could enroll in leading to the final release, but luckily that’s no longer required to take advantage of the latest features found in macOS 10.13. VR finally comes to the Mac One of the biggest bits of news surrounding macOS High Sierra is that it will finally bring support for virtual reality headsets officially. Namely, the HTC Vive and Steam VR will work with Macs running the new OS this autumn. However to use such a device, you’ll need at least a 5K iMac or MacBook Pro – or, any Mac that can run the new OS with an external GPU solution. Support for such devices comes part and parcel with macOS High Sierra, but won’t be an active function until later this year. The good news is that macOS High Sierra comes with a helping of refinements to its graphics API that make up for the scarce GPU support. Metal was a step forward for hardware-accelerated 3D graphics, but with Metal 2, Apple promises less strain on the CPU as well as proper machine learning and better Xcode profiling/debugging in macOS High Sierra. Perhaps more important, though, is the fact that MoltenVK was recently brought to Mac by Khronos Group. An implementation of the open-source Vulkan API, it’s said to bring frame rate gains of up to 50% in Dota 2. As it’s cross-platform, too – being supported by Windows and Linux as well as Apple’s devices – MoltenVK is likely to be more widely adopted by creators. The final build of macOS High Sierra, 10.13.6 is available right now. Beside a few bug fixes, it integrates Airplay 2 into iTunes – though you will need to update iTunes to take advantage of it. You can download the update from the Mac App Store. More importantly, this update contains the bug fix that stops the Core i9 MacBook Pro from thermal throttling

  7. If you ever trailed a trailer, then you know how much your visibility is limiting, but a French company has found the optimal solution to remedy this problem. The on-board display allows you to see a true panorama of everything behind the trailer. The French company Valeo presented at the Consumer Electronics Show 2019 (CES) a smart camera system for cars that are mounted on both the vehicle and the trailer. A second set of cameras is mounted behind the two vehicles. All the real-time recordings made by the four cameras are then combined into one, so you get a panoramic view behind the trailer as if it were not behind your car. Real-time video recording is transmitted directly to an on-board LCD to help you drive safely for you as well as for other road users. In CES 2019, Valeo representatives did not mention whether the screen compatible with their technology will somehow be integrated into the car. This would be most convenient because it's hard to find a place for a screen of the size of the image, separate from the car's display. The synchronized video system helps you get more visibility in any situation, both in light and dark, and to be sure when you can overcome a front car without cutting back on the drivers of speed that come with speed. This system is used in TIRs that transport Samsung's technology abroad. The South Korean company boasts that all its trucks are equipped with front-mounted cameras that transmit a real-time shooting on a screen located behind the TIR. Thus, any machine that remains temporarily locked behind it has perfect front visibility and no longer risks driving halfway up the counter.
  8. Știm deja că AMD plănuiește lansarea unei generații de GPU-uri pe 7 nm anul acesta, însă până acum nu ne era foarte clar câte variante de plăci grafice cu arhitectură Navi vor exista. Mulțumită unui leak publicat pe TonyMacx86 forum, astăzi aflăm că vor fi patru versiuni: Navi 16, Navi 12, Navi 10 și Navi 9. Informația vine din codul sursă a unei actualizări de macOS și, din ce susțin cei de la Videocardz, este cât se poate de credibilă. Nu știm însă cu exactitate dacă aceste placi grafice vor avea die-uri distincte sau dacă vor fi variații ale aceluiași chip. Unele surse din dot com vorbesc deja de die-uri diferite pe Navi 10 și Navi 12, dar fără a prezenta dovezi concrete în acest sens. Se zvonește că vârful de gamă Navi 12 (sau RX 3080) va fi cu 15% mai rapid decât Vega 64 și cu doar 10% mai slab decât Radeon VII, la un preț de doar 250 dolari. În acest context, strategia AMD pare a fi destul de greu de înțeles, Radeon VII având un cost de aproape trei ori mai mare și un spor de performanță infim. Mai există și varianta în care modelul de top Navi 12 nu va fi așa rapid cum se zvonește. Cât despre plăcile grafice bazate pe Navi 14 și Navi 16, nu cunoaștem încă foarte multe detalii. E mult prea devreme pentru leak-uri cu benchmark-uri, așa că nu avem de ales decât să așteptăm. Sursa: ArenaIT
  9. Sapphire, producatorul de incredere al AMD, a anuntat o varianta noua pentru RX570. Acesta este conceputa special pentru minat. Se numeste Sapphire RX570 16GB HDMI Blockchain si la prima vedere nu aduce nimic special fata de un model clasic. Placa se diferentiaza de modelul clasic doar prin cei 16GB de memorie, in schimb avand tot 2304 unitati de procesare, BUS de 256bit si o latime de banda a memoriei de 224GB/s. Ventilatoarele sunt de 92mm, se poate scote usor pentru a le curata de praf, are alimentare cu 8 pini si consuma 175W. Suporta Grin Coin, Cuckaroo 29+ si Cuckatoo 31+. Sursa: ArenaIT
  10. Ever wondered what it would feel like to be carrying secrets that could impact national security in a drive with military-grade encryption? Well, while we can’t help you with the secrets portion, DiskAshur2 from iStorage can take care of the military-grade encrypted device part with its lineup of portable SSDs. Today, we will be looking at the iStorage DiskAshur2 512 GB portable SSD that ships with AES-XTS 256-bit – military grade encryption that is currently unbreakable (from a direct attack vecto r ) . iStorage’s DiskAshur2 brings unbreakable data security to the consumer market starting at $176 iStorage is a pretty well-known name in the encrypted storage market – they were the first company on earth to get a portable encrypted storage solution on the market with their DiskAshur Pro series (which has certifications by NATO and other major organizations). The DiskAshur 2 (non-pro) series lacks these certifications but as far as I can tell that’s pretty much all the difference between the Pro and non-Pro variants. In any case, they should be more than enough for the average consumer’s security needs. Before we go any further, here is a quick overview of the tech. Capacity 500GB, 1TB, 2TB, 3TB, 4TB & 5TB Data Transfer Speed Up to: Read 148 MBps / Write 140 MBps RPM 5400 Buffer Size 8MB Power Supply Bus Powered Dimensions (W, D, H) 124 mm x 84 mm x 19 mm (500GB,1TB,2TB)| 124 mm x 84mm x 27mm (3TB,4TB,5TB) Weight 500GB/1/2TB max. 216 grams approx. | 3/4/5TB max. 325 grams approx Approvals FIPS PUB 197 Validated, FCC, CE, RoHS, WEEE, TAA Compliant Interface Super Speed USB 3.1 - up to 5Gbps.

A very good quality USB extension cable is also included in the box (which is a very thoughtful touch!) which increases the value of the package when looking at the price tag of $176. The SSD itself features an epoxy coated keypad, with a USB 3.1 cable tucked away in the side . The SSD feels very well built in hand and has oleo-phobic coating on the keypads so the keys don’t give away the possible key combinations by degrading over time as the same pin is keyed in repeatedly. I was slightly concerned about the integrated cable as that is the biggest possible point of failure but the quality of the material is very sturdy and my fears appear to be unfounded. Encryption and ruggedness overview The DiskAshur2 utilizes a dedicated on-board secure microprocessor to handle all encryption needs on a hardware-level. This is a very important distinction because this means all encryption processes will happen on-disk, away from the host’s PC where they might be modified. The specific encryption standard that is being used is the AES-XTS 256-bit which as far as I know is known to be unbreakable. This is a FIPS PUB 197 validated encryption algorithm that is handled in its entirety by a Common Criteria EAL4+ on-board microprocessor. Best of all, however, you get no performance degradation since this is full disk encryption. An interesting part of the security design is that the device will accept a maximum of 15 pin attempts. After that, it will delete all encryption keys and the data will be lost forever (the device assumes a forceful attempt is underway). This is either a pro or a con depending on how security conscious you are. The device also has a self-destruct pin which you can enter to delete all data in one go. The packaging is IP56 certified which means its fairly dust and water-resistance so don’t worry about the odd splashes and rain. The case itself is rubberized so it can handle a fall quite easily (SSDs are more resilient to falls than HDDs anyways). The case is also designed to be tamper-proof and any attempt to open the device or mess with the encryption hardware will result in the device assuming someone is attempting to tamper with it and all data lost. The device that iStorage has applied the encryption layer is actually the ADATA SU800 512GB – which is what benchmark software will sometimes detect the drive as when you plug it in. This means that you are looking at a 3D NAND based SSD with a very high shock tolerance. The DiskAshur2 features 294 MB/s read and 319 MB/s write speeds and includes intelligent SLC caching and DRAM memory cache buffer (the standard bells and whistles of modern SSD firmware). This particular SSD also contains an error LPDC – low-density parity check – which compared to non-error correcting memory is going to offer superior reliability of the data as well as the encryption keys. Our testing methodology includes filling up the drive to roughly 1/4th of its value and then running tests as this gives a more accurate picture than simply testing a newly formatted drive out of the box. The performance of the DiskAshur2 was very impressive and I was continuously getting 300 MB/s+ read and writes when transferring data from my M2 Samsung 960 SSD over the USB 3.1 front port. Here are the CrystalDiskMark results on the front USB 3.1 port:
