I’ve been waiting to get a good Power Bank so I can recharge my iPhone 6 Plus and my iPad when on the go. I didn’t want a too small Power Bank. I use my iPad quite a lot, so one of the main features it needed was the ability to quick charge at 2.1 Ampere. After comparing the different choices I decided to get a TP-Link TL-PB10400mAh Power Bank. It didn’t take long before I had to test it out by measuring the capacity and the efficiency of the boost converter in it.
I helped my boss today with a weird problem. In his calendars on his iOS devices, an extra line would show up, displaying the GMT time of the event. The event was placed correctly in the timeline, but it included the GMT time in the text. Naturally I did the obligatory Google search and found a lot of other users with the same problem, but not any solutions on how to fix it.
After checking all the settings on Google Calendar and checked the time and calendar settings, I couldn’t find anything wrong. But after checking out his iPad settings, I realized that the old IT guy had missed a thing.
George Tinari, The Unofficial Apple Weblog (TUAW):
WiFi Map is a crowdsourced tool for finding all of the Wi-Fi hotspots in your area as well as the passwords to certain security-protected networks.
This looks like a great utility when trying to find a free WiFi hotspot. I’m going to give it a go on my iPhone next time I’m out and about in the city. I hate the 1Gb cap I have on my phone by network provider Tele2.
Let’s just hope that Apple doesn’t ban the app. I’ve seen it before…
I have being going through the code for the Editorial App Workflow for uploading images directly to WordPress Media Library and added some functions. There where several bugs and problems. Should work better now.
— Bug where scaling didn’t work at all (shame!)
— Added full resolution image as alternative
— should work now for blogs that doesn’t automatically make scaled versions of uploaded images, only presented with the option to use full resolution.
My New walkabout camera
I used to try to bring my Canon 5D Mark II with me wherever I went. But with the best walkabout lens, the old 24–70 f2.8L mounted on the camera; it became a pain just to carry the beast around. Only the glass weights 1.1 kilos, and with a battery grip with dual batteries, it’s a complete monster. I still use it because of the great optics and the quality when shooting with it, but I no longer use it for street photography.
