MagicDock Turns Your iPad Pro Into an AllinOne Desktop

first_img Author Bio Apple’s iPad Pro is one of the most powerful systems around, offering better performance than almost every laptop we’ve tested. But as a tablet with limited cursor support, a lot of the iPad Pro’s power goes to waste. MacBook Air vs MacBook Pro: Which 13-inch MacBook Is Right For You?Apple’s entry-level MacBook Air and Pro look pretty similar, but our testing proved they differ in crucial ways.Your Recommended PlaylistVolume 0%Press shift question mark to access a list of keyboard shortcutsKeyboard Shortcutsplay/pauseincrease volumedecrease volumeseek forwardsseek backwardstoggle captionstoggle fullscreenmute/unmuteseek to %SPACE↑↓→←cfm0-9接下来播放Which Cheap Tablet Is Best?

If the dock looks familiar, it’s because the hinge is almost identical to the design of Microsoft’s Surface Studio.So, how does it work? An iPad Pro slots into the anodized aluminum dock using magnets then connects (and charges) via the iPad Pro’s USB-C port. The dock’s flexible hinge can rotate 90-degrees from landscape to portrait mode, so you can easily switch between watching a movie and editing a document. And like the Surface Studio, the arms of the dock bring the iPad Pro to desk level as you lower them. MORE: New iPad Pro 12.9-inch – Full ReviewOn the back of the dock are ports for plugging in peripherals, including the headphone jack that got removed from the latest iPad Pro. Other inputs include an HDMI port, a USB-C port and a USB 3.0 port, so you don’t have to live the dongle life anymore.  The MagicDock is compatible with the 2018 12.9-inch and 11-inch iPad Pro models. Early bird prices start at $99 for the 11-inch version and $109 for the 12.9-inch dock. The MagicDock has already received $21,972 from more than 200 backers, quickly passing its $8,000 goal with 27 days remaining. Before you pledge to this project, it’s important to be aware of the risks of crowdfunding. A study conducted in 2015 found that 9% of Kickstarter projects fail to deliver a product and those that do are often delayed or launch something different than what was originally promised. Credit: KickstarteriPad Pro Keyboard Case Face-Off: Apple vs. Brydge vs. Logitech by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeVikings: Free Online GameIf You Have a Computer, This Strategy Game Is a Must-HaveVikings: Free Online GameUndoKelley Blue Book5 Mid-engine Corvettes That Weren’tKelley Blue BookUndoForbes.comLebron’s Home Made This Forbes ListForbes.comUndoVerizon WirelessThis new phone will blow your mind.Verizon WirelessUndoMy Food and FamilyHealthy, Homemade Drunken Thai Noodles In Just 20 MinutesMy Food and FamilyUndo247 SportsRanking The Highest-Paid NBA Players In 2019247 SportsUndoAdvertisement Phillip Tracy, center_img Phillip Tracy is a senior writer at Tom’s Guide and Laptop Mag, where he reviews laptops and covers the latest industry news.

PrintFriendly and PDF for Microsoft Edge

first_imgPrintFriendly and PDF for Microsoft Edge by Martin Brinkmann on May 02, 2017 in Internet Explorer – Last Update: July 05, 2017 – No commentsPrintFriendly and PDF is a new browser extension for Microsoft Edge which optimizes web pages for printing or PDF creation.When Microsoft announced extension support for its Edge browser, hopes were high that this would give the browser a much needed boost to close the productivity gap to Chrome or Firefox.The initial release in 2016, with the Anniversary Update, pushed a handful of extensions to the Store. Not a lot happened afterwards though; there was a trickle of new extensions that Microsoft published via the Windows Store, but nothing substantial and altogether less in the eight or so months since then, than what gets released for Chrome or Firefox in a couple of days.PrintFriendly and PDF for Microsoft EdgePrintFriendly and PDF for Microsoft Edge is the latest browser extension for Edge. It is a port of the popular Print Friendly extension for Chrome and Firefox.The extension supports several features that push it past Edge’s own Reading View feature which converts web pages to print friendly pages for better accessibility and printing.PrintFriendly and PDF offers that functionality, only better. The extension adds an icon to the menu on installation which you can click on to activate its functionality. You can move the icon from the menu to the main toolbar by right-clicking on it in the menu, and selecting the “show next to address bar” option.The extension cuts all the excess fat of the website in question when activated, so that you end up with the main article only in the end.It displays print, pdf and email buttons at the top, and hides its other functionality behind a menu icon.If you click on that, you may increase or decrease the text size of the article, and switch from displaying full size images to large/medium/small images, or no images at all.Another feature that PrintFriendly and PDF ships with is the ability to remove page elements. Simply hover the mouse cursor over an element, for instance an image, paragraph of text, or other data such as the page’s publication date, and hit the “click to delete” option that appears.The element is removed instantly from the page. Note that you can undo the changes that you make by clicking on menu and selecting the undo option that is displayed there.You may print what you see on the screen, or save the content to a PDF file instead. The only other option is to email the article to a recipient. The latter did not work during tests on the system I tried the extension on though.Closing WordsPrintFriendly and PDF extends Edge’s own Reader View mode by giving your more control over what is displayed on the screen. It is not really needed if you find Reader View satisfactory already.You may also use the bookmarklet that Print Friendly has created instead of installing the Edge extension. (via Deskmodder)Now You: Why are there so few browser extensions for Edge available? Summary12345 Author Rating2.5 based on 6 votes Software Name PrintFriendly and PDFOperating System Windows 10Software Category ProductivityLanding Page https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/store/p/app/9ndw7p49xrm2 Advertisementlast_img read more

Openmailbox Alternatives after owner change

first_imgOpenmailbox Alternatives after owner change by Martin Brinkmann on August 07, 2017 in Email – Last Update: August 22, 2017 – 76 commentsOpenmailbox, a popular cloud storage and email service provider, began to update its service a couple of days ago which led to a two-day long outage.After the site went back up, users of the service noticed that ownership changed hand, and that the new owners of the service made a drastic change to the service.Update: ownership did not change, the owner of the service changed it from a non-profit organization to a Limited.Free users of Openmailbox could use IMAP/POP to connect to their mailboxes previously. The new owner of the service, French company SASU Initix, disabled the option without prior notice for all free account owners.This blocked the use in all email clients for free users, and left them with no choice but to use the web interface instead to do their mailing.Related to that is the removal of the mail aliases feature. The available aliases were removed completely and stopped redirecting any messages.According to the new pricing page on the website, IMAP, POP and SMTP access to Openmailbox accounts is only available to PRO users.The company posted an update on the official site about the removal of the IMAP service.The reason for this limitation is the cost of offering this protocol. In fact, due to the nature of the protocol, great loads are experienced from our side. Sadly managing all this load for free is hardly sustainable.It acknowledges however that the transition did not went as smooth as it should have been. All free users that used the service before August 4, 2017 get one month of PRO account access.Reactions were not pleasant to the changes. Most disliked the feature removal. Some customers stated that they understood the reason behind the change — as the company stated that it was not viable financially to offer IMAP to free users of the service — they disliked that the new owner did not notify customers in advance about the upcoming changes.Openmailbox alternativesDisroot — Offers access to email. cloud, forum, Dispora social network, Pastebin and more based “on principles of freedom, privacy, federation and decentralization.

first_imgHow to access any Reddit forum quickly in Firefox or Chrome by Martin Brinkmann on November 21, 2018 in Firefox, Google Chrome, Internet – Last Update: November 21, 2018 – 24 commentsReddit uses a straightforward structure for its subreddits (forums). The main URL, https://www.reddit.com/r/, is always the same and the name of the forum is just added to it. For the main Firefox forum, you’d go to https://www.reddit.com/r/firefox/ for example.Reddit users may sometimes want to jump to certain forums right away. While it is possible to subscribe to forums to get quick jump options while on the site or use bookmarks for that, another option that is available is to integrate the functionality directly in the browser.How that is done depends on the web browser. In Chrome, you’d add Reddit as a search engine, and in Firefox, you’d add it as a bookmark.Google Chrome and RedditOpen the Search engine settings in Chrome by loading to the following internal Url: chrome://settings/searchEnginesClick on the Add button on the page to add a new search engine and fill out the following fields:Pick any name under Search Engine.Set the desired keyword, e.g. rePaste the following URL to the URL field: http://reddit.com/r/%sWhenever you want to jump to a Reddit forum in Chrome, type re (the keyword you picked), then Space, and then the name of the forum. To go to the Chrome forum, you’d type re, then Space, then Chrome, and then return to get there right away.Note that the same method may work in Chromium-based browsers that are not Chrome as well.Firefox and RedditFirefox users may use the browser’s bookmarking system for the same functionality. The process is a bit different from Chrome but the result is the same.Use the shortcut Ctrl-Alt-B to open the Library of the browser. You can also tap on the Alt-key and select Bookmarks > Show All Bookmarks instead.Switch to a folder under All Bookmarks, e.g. Bookmarks Toolbar.Select New Bookmark from the context menu and fill out the following fields:Select any name you want under Name.Use http://reddit.com/r/%s as the location.Add a keyword, e.g. re.Once you are done type the keyword followed by the name of the subreddit and then Enter to jump straight to it.SummaryArticle NameHow to access any Reddit forum quickly in Firefox or ChromeDescriptionFind out how to add Reddit forum quickjump options to the Firefox and Chrome web browsers to jump to any subreddit immediately.Author Martin BrinkmannPublisher Ghacks Technology NewsLogo Advertisementlast_img read more

Ribbon Disabler 40 restores Explorers classic interface

first_imgRibbon Disabler 4.0 restores Explorer’s classic interface by Martin Brinkmann on June 27, 2019 in Software – 10 commentsRibbon Disabler provides users who dislike the interface with an option to restore the classic Explorer interface on Windows 8 and newer versions of Windows.Ribbon Disabler 4.0 is a new version of a software program that we reviewed in 2013 for the first time. Microsoft introduced a ribbon interface in Windows Explorer when it launched the Windows 8 operating system and announced it even earlier in 2011.Some dislike the ribbon interface, others like it. The same heated discussion took place when Microsoft integrated the ribbon interface in Microsoft Office. Microsoft released an add-on for Office even, called Ribbon Hero, to teach new functionality playfully. Office users who did not want to use the ribbon interface could install a third-party program like uBit Menu to restore the classic interface.Ribbon Disabler is a very simple program that you can run right after you have downloaded its archive from the developer website and extracted it. The application requires no installation and can be run from any location including USB drives.Note: you may get a Windows SmartScreen prompt when you run the program.The interface displays two buttons to toggle the functionality. All you need to do is click on the “disable Ribbon Explorer” button to restore an Explorer interface that resembles that of Windows 7. You need to log out of the account or restart the PC to apply the changes, and Ribbon Disabler reminds you of that once you use it to disable or enable the ribbon interface.To restore the functionality at any time, run the program again and select “Enable Ribbon Explorer” this time.The modified interface looks like the one on the screenshot below on a Windows 10 machine. Note that the ribbon interface is no longer visible and that you access most options from the menu instead.Closing WordsRibbon Disabler worked well during tests on a Windows 10 system. The new version 4.0 of the application supports all versions of Windows starting with Windows 8.The interface could be improved usability-wise though as a toggle could reduce some of the confusion surround the disable and enable options.The program may be worth a try for users who are still holding on to Windows 7 but plan to migrate to Windows 10 in the near future. Windows 7 will run out of support in January 2020.Now You: Ribbon or not, which do you prefer?

Samsung DeX Is Now Available As A Windows And macOS App

Now the handset can be connected to a monitor via a USB-C to HDMI cable and work alongside a PC.It’s still more or less the same as before when it comes to interface and functionality of the app itself, but there are some clear advantages here now that it’s a PC app. For starters, users can now access their mobile’s calls and messages and other software and use them together with their computer’s other apps.Files are easier to manage this way too, since users can drag and drop them from the mobile to the PC and vice versa.It’s also worth mentioning that DeX isn’t the same as the new Link to Windows feature that debuted with the Galaxy Note 10. While users can access messages and the like through the latter, the interface is different, not to mention it’s wireless.The new DeX app is compatible only with the Galaxy Note 10 and Galaxy Note 10 Plus at the moment, and it works on Windows 7, Windows 10, and macOS 10.13 or later.Before anyone asks, no, it doesn’t support the Galaxy S10, Galaxy S10e, or Galaxy S10 Plus.

Bioengineers Are Closer Than Ever To LabGrown Lungs

first_imgThe lungs in Joan Nichols’ lab have been keeping her up at night. Like children, they’re delicate, developing, and in constant need of attention, which is why she and her team at the University of Texas Medical Branch at Galveston’s Lung Lab have spent the last several years taking turns driving to the lab at 1:00 am to check that the bioreactors housing their experimental organs are not leaking, that the nutrient-rich soup supporting the lungs is still flowing, or that the budding sacs of tissues and veins have not succumbed to contamination. That last risk was a persistent source of anxiety: Building a lung requires suspending the thing for weeks on end in warm, wet, fungus friendly conditions—to say nothing of the subtropical climate of Galveston itself. “In this city, mold will grow on people if they sit still long enough,” Nichols says.But their vigilance has paid off. In 2014, Nichols’ team became the first to bioengineer a human lung. A year later, the researchers implanted a single lab-built lung into a pig—another first. They’ve grown three more pig lungs since, using cells from their intended recipients, and transplanted each of them successfully without the use of immunosuppressive drugs. Taken together, the four porcine procedures, which the researchers describe in this week’s issue of Science Translational Medicine, are a major step toward growing human organs that are built to-order, using a transplant recipient’s own cells. A bioengineered pig lung after 30 days of growth in a bioreactor.Joan NicholsBioengineering a lung is a bit like modeling with clay: Like a sculptor uses a wire armature to lend his creation form, Nichols’ team grew the tissues and blood vessels of their lab-grown lungs atop a framework of tough, flexible proteins. The researchers got that scaffolding secondhand, harvesting whole organs from dead pigs and bathing them in a concoction of sugar and detergent to strip them of the cells and blood of their previous owners like a coat of varnish from an old table.Nichols calls the milky mass that remains the organ’s skeleton: It’s made mostly of collagen, which lends the lung strength, and elastin, which makes it flexible. Each scaffold goes into a bioreactor—one of the containers Nichols and her team built from scratch to house each of the proteinous blobs. The earliest models were little more than spruced-up fish tanks; the latest iterations still incorporate parts purchased from Home Depot. A bioengineered pig lung suspended inside a bioreactor. The lung was positioned so Nichols and her team could monitor the placement of catheters in the trachea, pulmonary artery, and pulmonary vein.Joan NicholsIts humble origins notwithstanding, each bioreactor plays a vital role. “It lets you provide the organ with growth factors, media, mechanical stimulation,” says pediatric anesthesiologist Joaquin Cortiella, who co-leads the Lung Lab with Nichols. Its job is similar to that of a placenta, allowing the lung to develop in a warm, cozy, nutrient-rich environment for 30 days before it moves to the thoracic cavity of a living, breathing pig, nestled neatly beside the animal’s original lung.

Sign up for our daily newsletter and never miss our latest and greatest stories A diagram of the bioreactor shows how it connects to the microfluidic, pumping, and waste disposal systems.J. Nichols et al./Science Translational MedicineGrowing a lung in a bioreactor for a month is a significant accomplishment, says bioengineer Gordana Vunjak-Novakovic, director of the Laboratory for Stem Cells and Tissue Engineering at Columbia University, who was unaffiliated with the study. In an email to WIRED, she said that previous lab-grown lungs have spent a lot less time in culture before being transplanted. The extra time allowed Nichols’ and Cortiella’s bioengineered lungs to grow more blood vessels, the underdevelopment of which “is a major current limitation of lung survival,” said Vunjak-Novakovic. In past studies involving smaller animals, transplant recipients have died within a matter of hours due to fluid accumulation in the lungs. By contrast, the vasculature in Nichols’ and Cortiella’s organs allowed the pigs who received them to survive as long as two months post-transplant without any observable complications.It’s unclear how the pigs would have fared beyond two months. The four animals in this study were euthanized 10 hours, two weeks, one month, and two months post-surgery, so the researchers could examine how each bioengineered lung had developed inside its recipient following transplantation. All signs pointed to the lungs integrating seamlessly—they continued to develop blood vessels and lung tissues and were colonized by the microbes specific to each animal’s native lung microbiome, all without respiratory symptoms or rejection by the recipient’s immune system.A big lingering question is how well the bioengineered lungs deliver oxygen. Though each of the pigs had normal amounts of the stuff pumping through their bodies, that could have been the work of the animal’s original lung. The researchers worried the implanted organs were too underdeveloped to risk stopping each research animal from breathing on its original lung, to test the lab-grown one in isolation. That’ll have to wait for future experiments, which Cortiella and Nichols say will involve pigs living for a year or more on their transplanted organs.Such studies will also require more animals. “It will be interesting to see how robust this technology is, as the number of animals was very low,” said Vunjak-Novakovic. Still, the results are promising. With sufficient funding, Nichols and Cortiella think they could be transplanting bioengineered lungs into humans within the decade.But first come more experiments—and better, more reliable research facilities. High on Nichols’ wish list is a clean room for the bioreactors, accessible only to researchers clad head-to-toe in bunny suits. She’d like more automated equipment too, which would translate to less manual labor and fewer opportunities for error. And of course, she’s looking forward to the day when she and her colleagues can monitor their lungs remotely via a livestream. Babysitting bioengineered lungs may always be a 24-hour job, but at least with a video monitor the members of the Lung Lab could work remotely.last_img read more

Legislator says gay conversion therapy is okay if its done in a

first_imgA Maryland legislator says gay conversion therapy should be allowed, as long as it’s done in a ‘loving way’. More and more US states are starting to ban the controversial and discredited practice, with Washington recently passing a bill and becoming the 10th state to ban the practice.The Maryland Senate passed a bill on Wednesday (28 March) that would make it illegal for licensed mental health professionals to offer therapy to minors that is intended.The bill is expect to head to the House of Representatives for final deilberation.However the ban does not affect religious groups or unlicensed practitioners.But Senator Bryan Simonaire argues the government shouldn’t advise parents on what treatment they give to their children.Legislator argues that conversion therapy ‘isn’t abuse in every case’Washington banned gay conversion techniques being used on minors (Picture: Flickr)Simonaire said that parents should be able to choose conversion therapy, if it’s conducted in a ‘loving way’.“I don’t think [conversion therapy] is abuse in every case,’ claiming the ban would silence a child who wanted to talk to their clergy or health care professional about feeling gay or transgender.‘The definition is so expansive this bill could revoke someone’s license and livelihood by a simple conversation.

GAYSTARNEWS- ‘I wonder if Jesus would have been banned if he had been licensed in Maryland,’ he said according to the Baltimore Sun.Simonaire reportedly backed an amendment to the bill that would bar coercion, electroshock therapy, and other abuse.It would still give therapists flexibility with other conversion methods.Growing number of states banning controversial ‘gay conversion’ therapyRainbow pride in the Aloha state. | Photo: Flickr/D.A. LewisMaryland has joined a number of states banning the controversial ‘therapy’.Earlier in March the Hawaii State Senate passed a bill banning conversion therapy on minors in the Tuesday 6 March session. In SB 270’s text, conversion therapy, both in practice and advertisement, is prohibited age.’Furthermore, it also explains research done exploring the harm of conversion therapy.Legislators wrote the bill based on a task force the American Psychological Association set forth to assess the practice.‘The task force concluded that sexual orientation change efforts are unlikely to be successful and involve risk of harm to lesbian, gay, and bisexual individuals‘This includes depression, suicidality, loss of sexual feeling, anxiety, shame, negative self-image, and other negative feelings and behaviors.’ eTN Chatroom for Readers (join us) Maryland Legsilator Bryan Simonaire says that gay conversion therapy isn’t always abuse (Picture: Facebook/Bryan Simonaire) Maryland lawmakers ban gay conversion therapy for minorsHawaii becomes 12th US state to ban conversion therapy for minorsLGBTI ‘conversion therapy’ is quickly being phased out of the United StatesRead the full article on Gaystarnews:  :https://www.gaystarnews.com/article/legislator-conversion-therapy-okay/last_img read more
