We’ve all seen brightly-colored pieces of aluminum and can identify them as anodized. But what does that mean, exactly? A recent video from [Ariel Yahni] starring [Wawa] — a four-legged assistant — shows how to create pieces like this yourself. You can see [Wawa’s] new dog tag, below.
The makers of Halide, a popular third-party iOS camera app that offers advanced RAW shooting and other powerful tools, are today releasing another photography app: Spectre. Spectre costs $1.99 and comes with one big specialty: long exposures. Long exposures are very common in the DSLR world: they can make an ordinary nighttime city shot feel much more artistic by creating streaks of light from passing cars. Or you can take a long exposure to bring a real sense of moving water to waterfalls or other nature scenes. But on phones, long exposures have often gone ignored: theres no way of capturing one with the built-in camera on the iPhone or Google Pixel, for example. On devices from Samsung, LG, and others with manual photo modes, it can…
Samsungs promised Bixby remapping update is now available for owners of older Galaxy flagships, including the S8 and S8 Plus, S9 and S9 Plus, Note 8, and Note 9, after debuting on the soon-to-be-released S10 line.
Assuming you have a compatible device thats running Samsungs Android Pie / One Touch UI software, you should be getting a new update thatll bring the much requested feature to your phone.
There are a few caveats to the feature, as noted by The Verges Dan Seifert on Twitter: you cant remap the Bixby button to launch another voice assistant, like Google Assistant or Cortana, even if you have those apps installed.
my S10+ review unit has received an update to the Bixby app that lets me natively remap the button to a…
Buyers of the new Samsung Galaxy S10 and S10 Plus will find a preinstalled plastic screen protector on their device when they unbox it beginning March 8th. Samsung has confirmed that its shipping the S10 with a protector on the display, meaning you wont have to immediately hunt for something thats compatible with the ultrasonic in-display fingerprint sensor on day one. Now, this is just your very basic screen protector similar to what OnePlus does with their phones, if I had to guess and it isnt glass, so its bound to scratch over time. The included protector has a 90-day warranty.
Samsung will sell extras of its first-party screen protector for $29.99, but the company doesnt plan to bring it to Best Buy or carrier stores…

We can make our 3D-printed parts even more capable when we start mixing them with some essential “mechanical vitamins.” By combining prints with screws, nuts, fasteners, and pins, we get a rich ecosystem for mechanism-making with capabilities beyond what we could simply print alone.
In todays digital age, it can sometimes feel like hardware has taken a back seat to the software that drives devices. Button of the Month is a column that looks at some of these buttons and switches on devices both old and new to appreciate how we interact with our devices on a physical, tactile level.
Buttons are one of the most ephemeral parts of modern technology. A text file from a decade ago will still load the same, a dead consoles games can live on in emulators, and as the adage goes, nothing is ever really gone from the internet.
But even the best button is doomed to fail. As the only physically moving part in most modern tech, buttons are the one element that can truly, permanently wear down or break.
But during my discussions with quite a few developers, I feel that there is still a lack of clarity about how single-page applications actually work. Hence, I decided to roll up my sleeves (figuratively speaking) and provide my take on this very very interesting subject.
The Tiny Type Museum is a limited-edition handmade box set of traditional printing tech, including hot metal and wooden type, custom-made linotype slugs, plate molds, phototypes, plates, Monotype matrixes, other stuff besides, and a book about six centuries of reprographic technology that fits nice and kentucky in a slot.
I realize the museums price isnt low, but the intent is for it to be comprehensive, authentic, and long-lasting. Sourcing and commissioning material, building a custom case designed to last centuries (and likely longer), and having the book printed in a historically accurate and archival method adds up quickly.
I wanted to do this right, have it be meaningful, and produce a treasure that will last the ages, and youll be proud to own, examine, and share.
HMD Globals new Nokia 9 PureView and all five of its rear cameras may have just gotten announced at MWC 2019, but its hitting stores in the US really soon, with sales set to start March 3rd.
To go with the launch, HMD is also offering a special limited time offer on the Nokia 9 PureView that will lower the price by $100 off the usual $699 price, bringing it down to $599 for the first week of sales. After March 11th, the price will go back up, which doesnt leave a ton of time for customers to decide on whether they want to buy it. But if youre planning on being an early adopter, the extra $100 off certainly cant hurt.
The Nokia 9 PureViews standout feature is, of course, the quintuple camera array on the back, offering five…
20th Century Fox debuted a second trailer for the long-awaited next (and presumably final) installment its X-Men franchise, Dark Phoenix.
Directed by Simon Kinberg, the film reunites James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence, Nicholas Hoult, Sophie Turner, and others to adapt the Dark Phoenix storyline from the X-Men comics. The story is one of the best-known from the X-Men comics franchise, in which mutant Jean Grey is exposed to radiation, which boost her powers. The studio released its first trailer last fall, showing off the danger that Jean Greys powers pose to the world, and the complicity that Professor Xavier (player by McAvoy) has in her formation.
We see a bit of this in the trailer: the X-Men head to space and are…
If you love to travel, you love reminiscing about the places you’ve been. Aside from the photos, you might turn maps into keepsakes, putting pins or stickers onto each country you’ve visited. World Travel Tracker Scratch Off Maps® take that pastime and ramp up the fun, making it easy to keep tabs on your adventures by literally scratching each country off your list.
Like all good ideas, this one is pretty simple. What you’ve got is essentially a 17″ by 24″ scratch-off ticket version of the entire world. Every country is covered in gold foil that rubs off to reveal a different color, highlighting your visit. Stateside road trippers can also keep a tally of their itinerary, with the US, Canada, and Australia broken down into different sections for their own states and provinces. There’s also a gallery of scratch-off flags below the map – one for each of 210 countries.
The eighth season of Fortnite has arrived to the sound of an erupting volcano.
The biggest change is the addition of two new locations that have formed in the aftermath Lazy Lagoon and Sunny Steps which can be found in the northwest of the island, around the volcano that sprouted where Wailing Woods used to be. Theres now lava to look out for, and volcanic vents that will give you a boost into the air. The snowy portion of the island that formed in season 7, meanwhile, is still in place leading to the most diverse iteration of the Fortnite island yet.
This season has a pirate and adventure theme, which means not only the changes to the map itself, but also a new pirate cannon weapon. Meanwhile, a number of prominent elements have…

As an object-oriented language, Python provides two scopes for attributes: class attributes and instance attributes.
While the instance attribute in Python has exactly the same characteristics and definition as the other object-oriented languages, the class attribute is always mistakingly considered to be the exact equivalent of the static attribute in Java or C++. To be accurate, class attributes in Python and static attributes in Java or C++ have a lot in common, however, they have behavioral differences that I will highlight in this article.
At some point in your electrical pursuits, you’ll need to make a connector. Maybe you’re designing something that will connect to another device, or maybe the spaghetti mess of wires coming out of your Raspberry Pi has become a pain to deal with. Whatever the reason, a proper connector can …read more
