Nikon CoolPix S70 offers a retro feel http://www.battery-mag.us/blog/nikon-coolpix-s70-offers-a-retro-feel/ http://www.battery-mag.us/blog/nikon-coolpix-s70-offers-a-retro-feel/#comments Fri, 04 Mar 2011 10:33:58 +0000 amy http://www.battery-mag.us/blog/?p=225 Digital Camera Nikon CoolPix S70 comes with a stylish retro design with a chassis that includes leather in cream color. Another interesting feature of kamerna is that it uses an OLED screen.

Manufacturers of digital cameras have increasingly begun to focus on design, now that the hysteria about delivering the highest number of megapixels has calmed down. Retro design, we have seen before on a number of models, including the popular Olympus PEN - an SLR that had really good reviews, and that is very pretty.

Nikon CoolPix S70 is a compact camera that is small and compact in size, and it has a sensor with 12.1 megapixels and an optical zoom of 5x. In addition to taking still pictures, you can record video in Full HD resolution.

The screen measures 3.5 inches, which is quite large, and instead of the usual LCD has chosen to use the relatively new technology OLED . This will provide better clarity and brightness, but still does not display so well in sunlight.

Sony Ericsson Xperia X10: Images and Video http://www.battery-mag.us/blog/sony-ericsson-xperia-x10-images-and-video/ http://www.battery-mag.us/blog/sony-ericsson-xperia-x10-images-and-video/#comments Tue, 01 Mar 2011 10:26:54 +0000 amy http://www.battery-mag.us/blog/?p=218 Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 is the first mobile phone from a manufacturer that uses the Android operating system – Google competitor to the iPhone OS. The giant manufacturer Sony Ericsson embraces Android is a big step for the development. Moreover, it seems a great mobile!

Today Sony Ericsson announced its upcoming Xperia X10 that uses Android. The mobile phone (also called a smartphone ) is described by Sony Ericsson as an open world of social media, communications and entertainment. Xperia X10 is expected to be commercially available in the first quarter of 2010. More mobile phones that use Android also appears to be planned.

The Sony Ericsson Xperia X10, you should easily be able to manage your social life on the Internet, for example, Facebook and Twitter, e-mail and instant messaging, and other channels. Since it uses Android, you can download thousands of applications from the Android Market .

The development of software for Android is constantly moving forward, even if the time of writing is a way to go compared to the quantity of applications for iPhone OS. The advantage of Android is that the system is completely open. Anyone can develop applications for mobile phones, unlike iPhone, which Apple determines which applications are allowed to join.

Android is obviously a strong link to Google’s applications, such as Google Maps ,YouTube, Gmail, and more. But there is, as I said lots of other applications to download to cell phones.

With the launch of Xperia X10 will also be a wireless stereo headset ( MW600 ) that works over Bluetooth, which has built-in FM tuner. The headset lets you stream music from X10 to your earbuds.

Digital camera in the Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 seems to keep good quality. It has a resolution of 8.1 megapixels and autofocus. Furthermore, it has an anti-shake, which is good given that cell phones are not ergonomically designed by digital cameras. There is face recognition and leéndedetektor, which makes it easier for you to take good pictures.

Review: Microsoft Security Essentials, free antivirus http://www.battery-mag.us/blog/review-microsoft-security-essentials-free-antivirus/ http://www.battery-mag.us/blog/review-microsoft-security-essentials-free-antivirus/#comments Mon, 14 Feb 2011 08:23:21 +0000 amy http://www.battery-mag.us/blog/?p=196 Microsoft has launched a free antivirus program that has now come out in full version. Is it time to replace your antivirus protection against one of Microsoft ? PCOnline have tested the Microsoft Security Essentials – the free tool called!

Microsoft Security Essentials showed up as a beta version a while back, and with the launch test, I drove the early version for a while. I wrote a text about this on my blog . Now it has free anti-virus arrived in the full version and it’s still free . However, it is not yet translated into Swedish, so the version I chose was in English.

Security Essentials, offers one resident antivirus protection . This means that the program is in the background of your system and ensures that no virus infects your computer. You can compare with a virus scanner, as there are plenty of free versions of where the program will only scan your computer for viruses but does not remain and protect.

Free Antivirus

Software is available for Windows XPVista and Windows 7 . The file you download is about 8 MB, and then also needed updates are downloaded but it went very quickly.After installation, you can choose to scan your computer to see if there are any viruses lurking in the files on your hard drives and other storage devices.

The scan took about 30 minutes on my test computer. Then it is a relatively old computer at 3 GHz with 1.5 GB of internal memory and a couple of hard drives totaling about 500 GB. The speed must be assessed as average.

When I test for viruses, there are several details I’m looking at. What I do not test is how effective protection against viruses . This is something that I believe require significantly more resources than most newsrooms have access to. To carry out a fair test of antivirus effectiveness requires much more than simply installing some virus files and then kick off the program.

Why do I like most reviewers and the viewing figures from well-known and credible test centers , such as AV Comparatives.org and AV-Test . These, and some others, carrying out very good reviews that provide a good basis to assess how effective the virus protection is.

What I’m looking at is the installationuser interface , how much performance it takes the computer and the General experience of the software. This is what users have proven to be most interested. An antivirus program will work silently and efficiently in the background , without interrupting the user with either dialog boxes or by pulling down the performance of your computer

So you get better range on your wireless network http://www.battery-mag.us/blog/so-you-get-better-range-on-your-wireless-network/ http://www.battery-mag.us/blog/so-you-get-better-range-on-your-wireless-network/#comments Sun, 06 Feb 2011 02:27:21 +0000 amy http://www.battery-mag.us/blog/?p=171

Wireless networks have become very popular with both home users and businesses. One of the bottlenecks is scope, however, that you can improve with such Sitecom Wireless Range Extender .

Sitecom Wireless Range Extender 300N (product code WL-330 ) is a small device that looks like a regular wireless WiFi router. The difference, when you look at it, is that there is only one network socket for Ethernet connection.

Wireless Range Extender can work in two ways. First, it can be used to improve the range of your existing wireless network. Say you have a problem getting a good connection when you sit upstairs. Then you can install a Wireless Range Extender somewhere in the middle and thus expand your wireless network. In this mode the device acts as an amplifier that makes your WiFi network larger.

The other way you can use the Sitecom Wireless Range Extender at 300N, is to get a wired network device to become wireless. Do you have a network hard drive that only has Ethernet connection to your LAN, but lacks WiFi, so you can relax Sitecom device to disk, thereby making it wireless. This also works for video game systems that do not have WiFi, but has Ethernet.

Sitecom WL-300 is compatible with the network of 802.11b / g, and the new 802.11n Draft 2.0. The unit costs about 920 dollars and included in Sitecom’s product line Pure E-motion. We have not tested it yet, so how well it works in practice we do not know.
