Begins another season: advance FIFA 12 and PES 2012

Now that the football season begins to come to an end comes to the “other” season , they play every year the two major football franchises Consoleros: FIFA and Pro Evolution Soccer .

The first to open fire this year, as happened last year, was Konami , which has already shown a video in which Shingo “Seabass” Takatsuka, executive producer of Pro Evolution Soccer , talks about the new version including 2012 . After the jump you have the video :

In it, this nice man tells us about the virtues of the game and on the two pillars on which to base this issue: team play and improved AI .

For his part, responsible for its sworn enemy, the guys at Electronic Arts, still are a bit shy. However, and through the official journal PlayStation Magazine UK , and we could see the first footage of FIFA 12 :

Source: LivingPS3

The new version of the simulator Electronic Arts announced as major developments ahead of their 2012 version called Impact Engine , a new collision engine that promises to add more realism to the contact between players , and improved the system Personality Plus , by which the differences between players are more evident and the movements of each are closer to “as you move in real life” .

In addition, the version of FIFA 12 for Nintendo 3DS promises to give a lot to talk …

The battle is served. Who do you think will win this year? “FIFA or PES?

Google’s Cloud-based Laptops Should Improve On 4 Things

Amazon has not even started to take preorders for the six Chromebook stock keeping units but two of them are already in the top 20 “most wished for” laptop category.

The original Chromebooks though are far from being perfect and there are at least four things that can be done to improve the current generation quite easily actually.

(1) For unknown reasons, Google opted to get Chrome OS to run on Intel hardware rather than ARM. Switching to ARM will have a knock on effect on a number of critical features.

For example, the one-year old Toshiba AC100-10U laptop, which runs Android, is cheaper by a third and weighs 40 per cent less while having a similar battery life compared to the average Chromebook.

What’s even more incredible is that the AC100 uses a 2200mah, 3-cell laptop battery compared to 6-cell 8280mAh monster on the Samsung Chromebook for instance.

This also has other implications; Chromebooks for example will have more expensive and bulkier brick-type power adaptors whereas Chromebooks based on ARM are likely to have smaller, cheaper wall-type models.

(2) Speaking of the battery in the Chromebook, making it removable would be a great idea as the laptop only supports up to 1000 cycles or around 18 months in the worse case scenario.

(3) Bringing in an Ethernet port – a conspicuous omission – would also make a lot of sense especially if you have to set up the laptop in a notspot zone in the first place.

(4) Connectivitywise, turning Chromebooks into hotspots would be a pretty cool addition indeed, something that Connectify does already for Windows and Google already achieved with Android since Froyo.

While we are looking forward for the first wave of Chromebooks, we cannot wait for the next generation of Google’s cloud-based laptops to come forward.

Give Your Battery A Boost

Smartphone batteries have to be small, lightweight and yet power the device for an extended stretch while you talk, SMS, email, surf the web, take photos and videos or listen to music. The biggest  battery  eater in a smartphone is the screen, so you can start by reducing brightness. Kill any background apps, switch off Bluetooth and Wi-Fi when not in use, don’t use fancy screensavers and animated wallpapers and switch off push notifications for an instant boost.

FOR YOUR LAPTOP:
In laptops too, the screen is a large draw on the laptop battery . Reduce the brightness to an acceptable level, switch off Bluetooth/Wi-Fi if not in use, disconnect any peripherals that are drawing power from USB and use the built in power saving settings for the maximum benefit.

FOR YOUR CAMERA:
For cameras, pretty much the only thing that helps extend camera battery life is minimal use of the flash and minimal use of the LCD (if an optical viewfinder is available).

A NOTE ON BATTERIES:
Unfortunately, battery technology has not kept pace with the rest of the technology in our devices. If battery technology had kept pace, by now we would have had laptop batteries that charge to full capacity in a few minutes and last for weeks on end. Fuel cell batteries meanwhile, are still a few years away. Currently, all rechargeable batteries have a limited number of charge and discharge cycles – their charge retention capacity gradually reduces with each cycle. Over time, a battery needs replacement when its usable life is over – and you can tell when the backup time is one-third of what it used to be when new. To make any rechargeable battery last longer, you simply have to extend the time between each charge-discharge cycle, i.e., charge the battery only when less than 5% is remaining, and do not remove the charger until the battery has charged fully. This way, you ensure that each charge lasts you the maximum amount of time. Periodically, drain the battery down till the device shuts off completely and then charge till full.

Product Description:

This panel has no ballasts to burn out like other plant lights.

It does not run hot, just warm. You will not experience unsightly brown burned leaves when they accidentally touch the LEDs. This is common with most other lights that get very hot. This more controlled running temperature reduces the need to water so often and keeps rooms with plants from getting uncomfortably hot in the summer months requiring additional air conditioning. Extreme energy efficiency permits this new LED panel to pay for itself many times over each year in electricity savings.

It saves 50% to 90% in energy consumption compared to incandescent bulbs or fluorescent tubes. Wide angle projection insures uniform leaf coverage. Scientifically calculated even blending of red and blue LEDs eliminates the time consuming task of repositioning separate colored lights back and forth trying to achieve uniform exposure. 14 to 16 hours per day is all that is necessary for maximum plant health with this wave blended lighting system. This allows distances 6″ and less between the LEDs and the plants accelerating photosynthesis. Red and blue wavelengths are for growing and flowering of plants.

The typical white plant lights that are very hot is unnecessary and just consume excessive electricity.

The purity of the LED generated light lengthens flowering periods.

These LEDs turn on instantly and can be turned on by hand each day or work well with all standard lamp timers.

The design of this new all in one Full Spectrum plant lighting panel allows maximum level photosynthesis food production, growth and flowering all in one.

To help you budget your time, Called HP Laptop Battery Go

Ever run your MacBook or MacBook Pro without the battery installed? Most people don’t, but some notebook users pop them out when their systems are running on AC with hopes of extending the life of their hp pavillion dv6000 battery by a few months.

The battery stays in. If you’re a MacBook or MacBook Pro owner, you’ll get the best performance out of your system when you leave the  hp nx7400 battery in. A small extension of your battery’s life span is not worth a 37 percent drop in performance.

If you’re operating a MacBook or MacBook Pro system with a dead battery, I invite you to benchmark your own system: Try testing your notebook with and without the dead battery installed. You can use a free download of Cinebench R10 to benchmark your Apple system. Be sure to close all applications and disable Airport and Bluetooth before you run the test. And please let us know your results as a comment below.

Pulling the trigger would initiate high-speed movement that gets the electromagnetic induction coil to provide the energy needed for the remote control to operate. The coil can generate 20-30mA of current enough to transmit signals using infrared light.

To operate the device, you need to pull the trigger once to change channels and twice to turn the TV set on/off–making the No  HP  hstnn-ub73  Battery Remote Control a not-so-ideal remote control after all. Perhaps if they could find a way to let people choose channels instead of clicking on and on, it’ll be usable. But, it’s the technology that matters, not the remote control itself. If the mechanism could be used for other devices and allow them to operate without batteries, then that’ll be great. Anyhow, it’s just a prototype–who knows, we might be using it sometime in the future after all.

The guarantee will cover the performance of the battery, specifically a certain capacity level, according to the HP spokesman. If the compaq presario c700 battery ‘s capacity drops below the guaranteed level — a value less than 100 percent, the HP spokesman said — a user can exchange the battery for another. For its part, Boston-Power markets Sonata as a technology that delivers “like-new performance” for three years, offering the “same, unwavering capacity of a new battery that entire time”.

Although lithium-ion batteries have been plagued with a rash of problems, a Boston-Power spokesman said the company “was fundamentally founded on safety. It’s a non-negotiable issue.”

To help you budget your time,  Called HP Laptop Battery Go!, it shows your current power level, as well as what you could do with that much charge. Four big icons show you how long you could surf the Web, talk on the phone, listen to music, and watch video with your current charge level.

Besides showing your actually power level, the hp pavilion dv3000 battery Go! app lets you see how much usage you’d get at hypothetical power levels. A slider bar along the top lets you view usage times for different levels, so you can see how much phone time you’d have left, for example, if you watched a movie for two hours.

The app sells for a modest $.99 and will definitely be welcome to heavy iPhone users. If you’ve gotten battery level warnings on your iPod or iPhone before and wondered just how much usage you have left, give HP HSTNN-OB06 Battery Go!

How to Test a Laptop Battery

Testing a laptop battery allows you to determine if it has any remaining charge. The best way to test a battery is to connect it to a laptop and turn the unit on. However, there are several other ways to determine if your laptop battery has any charge.

Instructions

  1. 1

    Test your laptop battery with a test light. Check the test light first to make sure it works. Connect the light to a metal ground source. Check the test light on a battery that you know works. If the test light glows, it’s good. Place the light’s test end into the battery’s positive port. If the light glows, your battery is good.

  2. 2

    Check your laptop battery with a battery tester. Put one end of the tester in the battery’s positive port, and the other in a negative port. The tester will read how much life is in the battery, if any.

  3. 3

    Hook your laptop battery up to a multimeter. Follow the process in Step 2 to connect the meter and determine how much charge is left in the battery. Most multimeters are electronic, but some have gauges that move to a certain point.

  4. 4

    Place the laptop battery on a battery charger. These are mostly used for cars. Battery chargers generally indicate if a battery is good, bad or needs a charge.

The Dell Latitude D600 Is Getting No Power From the AC Adapter

By Jennifer Moore, eHow Contributor
updated: December 19, 2010

The Dell Latitude D600 is a part of the thin and light series made by Dell. This particular model is equipped with the newer Pentium M processor, making it one of the faster laptops of its time. It has all of the standard ports and features of the newer laptop models including the wireless mini card. However, like all laptops, after a certain period of time this computer can start to experience power issues. These power issues can be power cord, power outlet or DC Jack related.

    Power Cord Breaks and Lights

  1. Power shortage issues are often caused by problems with the power cord, and because this is such an easy fix, it is often overlooked. Check for breaks, tears or cuts in the cord and fix them with electrical tape or replace the cord, if the cuts are too deep. Check the box in the middle of the card to see if the surge protector light goes on when it is plugged into both the computer and power outlet; if this light is off then you need to replace the cord.
  2. Power Cord

  3. Check the voltage output for the power cord with a digital multimeter. If the voltage output does not have the correct Amps and Ohms listed on the surge protector box label (found in the middle of the cord) then you should replace the cord. Improper voltage transferring will keep the laptop from powering on.
  4. Power Jack

  5. When the DC power jack starts to fail or slightly loosens on the motherboard, it causes uneven voltage to reach the motherboard. Signs of this problem begin when you have to prop the power cord connector on the back of the computer in a certain way to get it to power on. Although the D600 will come on for some time by doing this, the DC jack is defective and needs to be replaced.
