A new app called Normal might help you finally get to the bottom of your iPhone’s disappointing battery life.
Unlike any other iPhone battery tracking app, Normal uses crowdsourced data from everyone using the app to provide personal advice on how to improve your battery. Once installed, Normal starts giving actionable suggestions like ‘kill Google to save 1 hour of battery life’ rather than just presenting you with stats.
I am getting so confused with photography. When I first started out over 50 years ago, life was simple. Photography just meant a roll of Kodak Tri-X-400 black-and-white film, my old Minolta camera, and off I went. The only thing I worried about was f-stops, shutter speed, focus and composition.
But that has changed in the name of creativity. Now everyone is adding scratches, light leaks and grunge to their once pristine images. Does any of this make any sense? It seems so counterintuitive. Of course when I first started in photography, the horizon was supposed to be straight and people used the rule of thirds.
After the shoot, it was a process of developing film and making a few prints. It was a combination of creativity and science making it more difficult than today’s instant digital images.
There was a time when everyone was trying to achieve fine grain and higher-quality images. That’s why people used film such as Kodak’s Kodachrome 25 when shooting color slides. It was amazing film back then because it produced great color and detail along with super fine grade. It was the higher quality everyone strove for.
Working with iCloud is fairly simple, but you need to know the ground rules if you plan to start storing your documents in the cloud.
The new dream in computing is keeping all of your files in “the cloud,” on remote servers that you can access from anywhere at any time. Apple’s cloud-based syncing and storage service, iCloud, debuted in June 2011. Still, only since the release of OS X Mountain Lion that enough applications have started to support iCloud document syncing for this feature to be useful. Working with iCloud is fairly simple, but you need to know the ground rules if you plan to start storing your documents in the cloud.
