This is a video of a couple zombies impressively parkouring around a post-apocalyptic wasteland. Obviously, if real zombies turn out to be this nimble, everyone’s getting their brains eaten. Except me. I’m throwing myself into a volcano like that little troll at the end of Lord of The Rings.
Hit the jump for the video.
We’ve never understood why Panasonic chose to brand its top-line tablet as the Toughbook H2, but given the hairy-chested types who build and use the gear, we’re not gonna challenge ‘em. The company hasn’t messed too much with the Windows 7 slate, except pushing the top chip to a 2.8GHz Intel Core i5-3427U and to swap out the 320GB 7,200RPM shock-mounted HDD for a 500GB model. Panasonic has also tweaked the hardware’s polycarbonate-encased magnesium alloy chassis, with MIL-STD-810G1 ensuring that the gear will survive drops from six-feet, as well as IP651 weather-proofing. The 3.5-pound unit also sees its battery life pushed to seven hours and also gains boosted WiFi 802.11 a/b/g/n and Bluetooth 4.1+EDR connectivity. Once you’ve selected a unit, there’s a hefty list of possible add-ons, including barcode scanners, smart card readers, Gobi-running 3G, LTE and GPS options. There’s even a model that meets MIL-STD-461F standards for electromagnetic protection — useful if your day job involves battling superheroes. The standard unit will set you back $ 3,349 and comes with a three-year international warranty, so you’d better get buttering-up your procurement manager now.

Question by Abraham: If I connect an ethernet cable to my imac and to my router would it be faster then wireless?
My imac is about 90Ft away from my router so I would need like a 100ft ethernet cable. Would that be better then using wireless?
Answer by Sassifrass13
A hardwire will always be faster than wireless. If that’s what you what to do than go for it. Though you can try relocating the router so make sure that you don’t have as much physical interference such as wall studs.

Qualcomm left out a few details when it announced its next-generation Snapdragon 800 mobile processor last month at CES. Every smartphone and tablet that utilizes the processor (none of which are expected until next year) will be enabled with what the company is calling Quick Charge 2.0, which is said to charge devices 75 percent faster than those without the technology. In the real world (if you count Qualcomm’s laboratory as the real world), it’s reported that some tablets that normally take over seven hours to charge did so in under three.
The technology builds off of Quick Charge 1.0, which is said to offer 40 percent faster charging than older phones, and Qualcomm announced just last week that it had been built into over 70…

There’s a whole sector of Bitcoin miners out there, people that set up specialized computer system rigs to run 24 hours a day to mine the digital currency. Thanks to a 23-year-old kid from Brooklyn, this cottage sector is about to change. Yifu Guo, a digital media pupil on hiatus from NYU-Poly, has released the first set of ASICs, which are chips tailor-made to do something: mine Bitcoins.
These ASICs can mining Bitcoins at a far higher rate than is possible with usual pc devices– Guo’s design, called the Avalon V1, could mine Bitcoins about 50 times faster than a high-end rig, and provides a a lot more attractive price-to-performance ratio. ASICs additionally consume much less power than GPU-based devices, but they do not …

There aren’t a lot of lens adapters that catch our eye, but the $ 600 Metabones Speedbooster has numerous tricks up its sleeve that we could see it tempting a lot of major NEX camera users– like us. Huge words, but exactly what it purports to do is absolutely nothing short of mind-boggling. First of all, it adapts your Canon EF (full-frame) lenses to E-Mount, which is good enough since there’s still a scarceness of high-end glass for NEX individuals. However it improves: the Speedbooster additionally makes your lens larger by a factor of 0.71 x, shrinking an 85mm lens to 59mm, for circumstances– successfully making your NEX nearly full-frame. Other adapters can do some of that, but its final trick is the piece de resistance: enhancing the rate of a lens by a complete stop. That may appear impossible, however it evidently works by focusing the added light-gathering area of a full-frame lens to the smaller E-mount sensor location, turning an f4.0 lens into an f2.8 lens, for example. The adapter presumably raises sharpness on top of all that, and brings “auto-aperture, image stablization, EXIF and (sluggish) autofocus support,” for late design EF lenses, according to Metabones.
Hesitation reigns till we could scope it for ourselves, however the adapter came out shining on Philip Bloom‘s video and photo evaluates up until now, judging by his samples (below the break). The $ 600 cost will likely deter laid-back users, but light-deprived in the house shooters (like us) or those shopping for brand-new glass– who already have a bagful of EF-lenses– may take it like a sugar abuser to Trix. Metabones said they’ll begin shipping the Speedbooster this month, and will come out with MFT and Fuji-X mount options, together with support for lenses from Nikon and Leica, amongst others. Check the source to see how to get it, however the line types behind us.

Recently we’ve seen faltering notebook sales courtesy of NPD Group, and now the latest numbers from IDC show that worldwide PC shipments continue to fall. A grand total of 89.8 million PCs were shipped during the fourth quarter of 2012, down 6.4 percent compared to the same period in 2011. The numbers for the whole of 2012 were also down 3.2 percent, with PC manufacturers shifting 352.4 million units overall.
The falling numbers mark a grim milestone as well, with IDC saying that this is the first time in over five years that sales declined year-on-year during the holiday season. The launch of Windows 8, then, doesn’t seem to have had much effect in the wake of tablets. Microsoft and its partners weren’t the only ones seeing…
Apple remained to win out in regards to tablet market share this previous quarter, according to the current figures from ABI Research, with a 55 percent share of all cargos throughout the duration. That ’ s a lead it has actually had given that 2010 when the iPad was introduced, however it ’ s also the slimmest lead it ’ s ever before had, and represents a dip of 14 percent against the previous quarter. At this rate, Android can overtake the iPad for tablet share sometime following year, something which appeared unlikely or even impossible in 2010 and 2011.
Shortly after the iPad ’ s introduction in 2010, there were prophecies that Android would eventually overtake Apple ’ s market share in the tablet market the same way that Android mobile phones had finished with the iPhone. But early predictions had the tendency to favor 2015 or 2016 as the crossover point at which Android tablets (from a variety of OEMs) would actually surpass iPad sales in regards to broad market share. Others still saw Apple dominating even longer– a 2011 Gartner research recommended Apple would keep 47 percent of the market in 2015, with Android coming up with just 38 percent.
Apple still hasn ’ t dipped that low, but Android now has 44 percent of the marketplace, owing in component to the utter failure of any various other tablet-based mobile platform. HP ’ s webOS was a brief-lived affair, and RIM ’ s PlayBook, in spite of remaining on sale, has actually failed to become a major competitor to either iOS or Android-based slates. That lack of competitive options has helped Android gain share much faster than a lot of initially forecasted, indicating a tipping point might not be that far off.
In fact, a current projection, expert Sameer Singh from Finvista Advisors recommends Android may take the crown as early as mid-2013, just following year. The narrowing of the space is testament to considerable improvements in the quality and selection of Android tablet gadgets readily available, including tough, inexpensive participants from Amazon (which are apparently selling well this vacation period, though there aren ’ t any type of numbers attached to those claims), and Google ’ s Nexus 7 (which we heard some very early numbers around from OEM partner Asus). Samsung also saw sturdy tablet efficiency, according to ABI.
ABI recommends that the iPad mini has actually done little to assist Apple ’ s general tablet sales, but I think it ’ s too early yet to inform exactly what kind of effect that new form factor will ultimately have on the company ’ s market share and its own tablet breakdown. And even if Apple loses its majority share of the tablet market in 2013, that likely won ’ t have a negative impact on its financial performance; losing the mobile phone market share crown, for example, hasn ’ t stopped iPhone sales from seeing continued positive development.
