Projectors are no longer the boring devices stuck on the office ceiling. The boom of portable projectors adds flexibility to when and where you want to watch a movie or handle a presentation. The ViewSonic M1 projector was the genesis of ViewSonic’s portable projector series. The second iteration, the M1+, brings a few incremental updates to the existing version.The M1+ distinguishes itself through three new features: a new 16GB internal storage, app compatibility, and wireless connectivity. Of course, the projector’s operating system has been overhauled to accommodate these new features.DesignFor a projector, the M1+ looks seriously nice. Its plastic shell features a mesh top that helps draw in more air.The only metal component, the stand, swings out from the front and doubles as a lens protector. A proximity sensor detects when an obstruction is in front of the lens and disables the lamp automatically; saving battery and potential blindness.Both the rear and sides are covered in ventilation grills.At the rear is a simple set of control buttons, the power button, and battery level indicator LEDs.On the left edge is a focus adjustment wheel.It also comes with a handy remote for basic media controls and keystone adjustment.A mounting hole at the bottom is compatible with a standard tripod and mounting screws.Ports and I/ODespite its tiny footprint, the M1+ comes with a plethora of ports. In addition to its internal 16GB storage, it also supports MicroSD card, USB-C, HDMI, 3.5mm audio jack (audio out), and a 5W USB-A port.Wired options aside, the M1+ also supports Bluetooth and WiFi connectivity.Resolution, color, and brightnessWith an 854 x 480p resolution, the M1+ isn’t going to trounce a 4K TV and gets blurrier the further away it moves from the projected surface. I found that it’s usable up to three meters, after which the display becomes too blurry to discern text.According to its specs sheet, the ViewSonic M1+ supports up to 1.06 billion colors, which is around 65 times the sRGB (Rec. 709) color gamut. If it sounds too good to be true, that’s because it is. The 1.06 billion colors rating is the number of colors its Texas Instrument Digital Light Processing (DLP) chip can support. The actual output is heavily influenced by other factors such as optics and color wheel quality.Even if it’s not shining in a billion colors, images and movies still look great. In the vibrant shots below, colors are punchy and saturated, which helps to deliver an enjoyable viewing experience.Brightness, however, is palpably lacking. When used in well-lit rooms in maximum brightness, the M1+ struggles to overpower even a floor lamp. In power-saving mode, it’s only usable in borderline blacked-out rooms.A projector’s projection size is quantified by its throw ratio. The throw ratio is the ratio between the distance of the lens to the projection surface and the width of the projection. A lower throw ration indicates a narrower projection and vice versa. Because the M1+ are likely to be used closer to the projection surface, it has a higher throw ratio of 1.2. Combined with a 3m usable distance, it can produce a projection up to 3.6m wide. Impressive for such a tiny unit.While the projector lamp isn’t interchangeable, it is rated to last for up to 30,000 hours. Beware that the lamp burns out faster when frequently used at peak brightness. Furthermore, all projector lamps dim over time.Since it will often project at an angle, the M1 can “tilt” its projection (called keystoning) to eliminate distortion. Its integrated gyroscope will try to compensate for tilting automatically, but the angle can also be adjusted manually through the remote. This is the single most commonly-used feature besides its power button. Unfortunately, the projection can only be tilted vertically and not horizontally.AudioWhat goes into your eyes matter, but what goes into your ears does too. In addition to supporting audio output through a 3.5mm audio jack, the ViewSonic M1+ also carries a pair of speakers by Harman/Kardon.Its sound is impressive even by portable speaker standards. Audio is sharp, biting, but bass is flat. While dedicated speakers are still better, the built-in speakers still did a fantastic job at filling a small office space with clear sound. Even more impressive, the speaker can act as a standalone wireless speaker without turning on the projector – albeit with the fan still on.SoftwareThe M1+ sports an interface so dummy-proof that a chimp can figure it out. Its starting menu provides a list of all the input sources, which can be selected using the included remote or the integrated buttons on the rear.When connected to the PC, the projector registers as a secondary display. In addition to external input, the M1+ also supports media playback through SD cards. This saves the user from having to carry a laptop when the presentation only involves media files.The app store — a marquee feature of the M1+ projector– resides quietly at the bottom. Once connected to WiFi, the projector can install a handful of media apps like BBC, Spotify, NBA, and so on. The app ecosystem is austere, however.Battery lifeSince I don’t have a baseline to compare it to, I evaluated the merit of the M1+’s battery life based on whether it can get through a movie and a lengthy presentation. My review unit lasted two hours and 12 minutes on a single charge at peak brightness. That’s respectable considering the unit draws up to 45W of power. The lights can also be dimmed to extend battery life further.The projector is set to Eco mode by default. Brightness can be manually adjusted or by changing its power settings to Full.Like the older M1, the M1+ still charges using a dedicated charging port. Just like the older generation, it takes hours to charge.Thermals and noiseFor the most part, the M1+ manages to keep quiet in standard and power-saving modes. Its single fan does ramp up occasionally, but never stays annoying for long, winding down after about 20 seconds or so.ConclusionAs ViewSonic’s updated entry-level portable projector, the M1+ brings a couple of new features to the table for $48 more, bumping the price up from $385.67 CAD to $432.36. Although it seems expensive compared to monitors, it’s a more affordable option in the projector world.Sporting a maximum resolution of just 854 x 480p, texts and finer details can appear aliased when examined up close. With that said, the color saturation is superb, just don’t expect it to actually cover the 1.06 billion colors that it claims to support.Brightness is the M1+’s most prominent drawback. I could give the low resolution an easy pass, but the dimness makes the projector borderline useless in a brightly lit room. When it comes to movies, fine. We watch them in the dark anyway. But in a meeting where people need lights to write down notes, it’s simply inadequate.I’m also especially appreciative of the M1+’s wide gamut of ports. In addition to USB-C and HDMI input, its wireless screen mirroring support is convenient for when you don’t want to transfer the files over to a PC. Abetted by a set of speakers that are great even if it lacks thumping bass. And being able to operate it independently is just icing on the cake. This section is powered by IT World Canada.

first_imgA spokesman added: “In these increasingly violent times the arming of the British police service is a legitimate matter for debate.”Policing by consent is a mainstay of keeping the peace in the UK, so ultimately it is for the public and our elected representatives to decide what sort of policing they want.”Previous research has suggested the majority of police are opposed to any change in approach, but surveys of members of the public have proved less conclusive. Conservative MP Philip Davies said: “In light of the terror attacks we’ve seen in Europe, I would much sooner the people who were armed in the UK were the police rather than the criminals.”More importantly, it’s about keeping the police officers safe, so we should let them decide what protection they need. I certainly believe that they should be routinely armed with Tasers, and as long as they are properly trained they should have the option of hand guns as well.”The Police Roll of Honour Trust, a charity that supports the bereaved relatives of police officers killed in action, said that they would “welcome any measures that would help the police to protect the public and keep themselves safe from harm.” However, police chiefs say they have struggled to recruit firearms officers, claiming that many fear they could spend years under investigation if they used their weapon in the line of duty.Last year, Scotland Yard announced plans to increase the number of armed police in the capital by 600, bringing the total to almost 3,000. Now the Metropolitan Police Federation, which represents 32,000 officers in London, is asking all of its members whether or not they would be happy to be armed on duty.Ken Marsh, chairman of the association, said: “We’ve seen a lot of change in Europe and a lot of different kinds of terror attacks such as lorries being used. “We’re asking our officers if they think they should be armed with Tasers and firearms to get an informed opinion from them so we can tell people what my colleagues are saying.”If it comes back overwhelmingly that they all want to carry firearms we would have to have a very frank discussion about that, but there is no intention as we speak for that to happen.”However, if there was a major incident on mainland England then I think that people’s opinions could change. The terrorism threat in London is constant and our officers must be vigilant and be able to deal swiftly with any scenarios we face.”He said the results of the survey – which runs until the end of January – could have a “lot of implications,” including the prospect of officers having to pass harder fitness tests to be armed. Britain could move closer towards having fully armed police as officers from the country’s biggest force are today asked if they want to carry a gun.The Metropolitan Police Federation will be asking its members whether they would be willing to carry a gun or Taser in the wake of a spate of terror attacks in Europe.They will also be asked if the prospect of being armed would put them off their jobs. Nationally, the number of armed police is being boosted by 1,500 officers, the number that security officials believe Britain needs to help protect the public from the possibility of a terror attack.center_img In light of the terror attacks we’ve seen in Europe, I would much sooner the people who were armed in the UK were the police rather than the criminalsPhilip Davies MP A poll in the wake of the November 2015 Paris attacks, which claimed 130 victims, found that 58 per cent of people believed British officers should be armed on patrol. For more than two years the official threat level for international terrorism in the UK has stood at severe, meaning an attack is “highly likely”.A Scotland Yard spokesman said the survey is not being carried out on behalf of, or in partnership with, the force.They said: “The position of the Met and the Commissioner is clear – we are proud to maintain the tradition that police in this country are not routinely armed. The routine arming of the Metropolitan Police is not supported.”About 92 per cent of the service is unarmed and armed policing is delivered by highly-trained specialist units. There is no plan to seek to change this.” Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp?

A four-year-old boy drowned at a holiday camp swimming pool during an event organised by drugs rehab charity after staff said something went “horrifically wrong”.The boy, named locally as George Miller, from Weymouth, Dorset was at the end of a week-long holiday with his family organised by Devon Narcotics Anonymous when he went missing.Emergency services were called to Knapp House Activity Centre, in Bideford, Devon, and the boy was taken to hospital, but he could not be saved.In an additional agonising twist for the child’s family, the first ambulance on the scene became stranded with a flat tyre – forcing a second to be called in.The boy was taking part in the sixth annual camp-out for members of Narcotics Anonymous (NA) and their families. “A second ambulance was immediately allocated and was on scene within six minutes. This crew then carried on to the hospital.”Our crews and police officers on scene would have been doing everything they could to treat the patient.” “Somehow he must have wandered into the pool building. From my own knowledge I know that it is not open all the time – only when supervisors and lifeguards are on duty.”The activity centre’s pool is housed in a timber shed with perspex roof and was sealed off yesterday.A spokesman for Devon and and Cornwall Police said: “The boy’s next of kin have been informed and inquiries continue.”Officers are investigating the circumstances and the death is currently being treated as unexplained.”Ashley and Stuart Clements, directors of Knapp House Activity Centre, insisted that the NA group had “self-supervised” use of the pool.”Our deepest sympathies go out to the young boy’s family and friends,” they said.”The group had the use of the pool on a self-supervised basis for recreational use – it was not part of the planned activity program that we provide.”We are fully committed to understand exactly how this could have happened and will continue to liaise with the emergency services, the Health and Safety Executive and Narcotics Anonymous to establish this.”A spokesman for South Western Ambulance Service NHS Trust said: “The first ambulance on scene received a puncture whilst transporting the patient to North Devon District Hospitallast_img read more

An emotional pensioner has seen his lifelong dream fulfilled as a special flypast has taken place to honour 10 airmen who lost their lives 75 years ago. The pensioner believes that the pilot had deliberately steered away from him and his friends, and has dedicated decades of his life to looking after a memorial to the men at the park.

first_imgBHP Billiton is reviewing its diamonds business, comprising the interests in the EKATI diamond mine and the Chidliak exploration project in Canada. Its strategy is to invest in large, long life, upstream and expandable assets while remaining a simple and scalable organisation. EKATI is a world class operation and Chidliak is a promising exploration opportunity, but many years of extensive exploration suggest there are few options to develop new diamond mines that are consistent with this approach. This review will, therefore, examine whether a continued presence in the diamonds industry is consistent with BHP Billiton’s strategy and evaluate the potential sale of all or part of the diamonds business.As it reviews its diamonds business, BHP Billiton says it “will only pursue those options that will preserve EKATI’s outstanding safety and environmental standards and protect the benefits that the mine has created for local communities. Potential transactions arising from the review will be subject to detailed analysis before a final decision is made. In the event that these criteria are not met, BHP Billiton will continue to operate its world class diamonds business in a sustainable manner.”BHP Billiton Diamonds & Specialty Products President Tim Cutt said: “EKATI has made a substantial contribution to economic growth and development in the North ever since diamonds were first discovered there in 1991. Its success is a credit to the great team working at the mine and the strong partnerships they have built with Aboriginal communities and local businesses. The review we’ve announced today will seek to maintain this legacy so that EKATI continues to bring social and economic benefits to the North while remaining a great place to work.”BHP Billiton’s review of its diamonds portfolio is expected to be completed by the end of January 2012.EKATI is located 310 km northeast of Yellowknife and 200 km south of the Arctic Circle. It is Canada’s first diamond mine and owned by BHP Billiton (80%), Dr Stewart Blusson (10%) and Charles Fipke (10%).EKATI has produced an average of over 3 Mct/y of rough diamonds over the last three years with annual sales representing approximately 10% per cent of global diamond supply by value. EKATI has an outstanding safety and environmental record and a strong history of working with communities in the North. Since operations began in 1998, its total expenditure on goods and services has exceeded $4.2 billion, of which almost 80% has been spent in the North with Aboriginal and Northern businesses.Chidliak is a diamonds exploration project located on South East Baffin Island in Nunavut, Canada. The property consists of 860,000 ha about 140 km from Iqaluit. Chidliak is a joint venture partnership between BHP Billiton (51%) and Peregrine Diamonds (49%) and has been operated by Peregrine since 2006. Exploration is ongoing and seven of 59 known kimberlites have shown economic potential, with others continuing to be explored and assessed. In addition to its diamond potential, the Chidliak property hosts mineral anomalies indicative of platinum/palladium, lead-zinc and copper deposits.Peregrine Diamonds reports that BHP Billiton continues to view Chidliak as a highly promising diamond exploration project and has committed to its share of up to $1.9 million for the mobilisation of materials and equipment that will be used for the 2012 Bulk Sample program. This commitment is not affected by BHP Billiton’s strategic review of its diamonds business. BHP Billiton intends to participate in the Chidliak 2012 exploration program. This commitment is also not affected by the strategic review.As operator of the Childliak Joint Venture, Peregrine has presented BHP Billiton with a preliminary 2012 Chidliak Joint Venture program and budget. The major objectives of the proposed program are the collection of bulk samples from kimberlites with economic potential and continued exploration to discover more kimberlites with economic potential. Peregrine and BHP Billiton expect to approve a 2012 Chidliak program and budget before year-end. Peregrine holds a right of first refusal on any disposition by BHP Billiton of its 51% interest in Chidliak.last_img read more

first_imgIt looks like those rumors from earlier in the week ended up being true. Motorola’s delayed, redesigned Droid Bionic is officially hitting stores this September. In an earnings call yesterday Motorola CEO Sanjay Jha stated that the 4G dual-core handset will be landing the month after next and that it will be the first device on Verizon Wireless’ network with both dual-core power and LTE radio.On the call Jha also noted that Motorola had another 4G phone coming in 2011 and that the company was planning to release two more tablets, one of which would be 10 inches and another that was smaller. An upgraded Xoom tablet, complete with 4G connectivity, will be released in September as well. The Xoom release will come after months of delays, which were necessary for Motorola to tweak the 4G radio connection. It’s said that the same problem could have caused the delay to the Bionic as well.Previous rumors had the Droid Bionic slated for an August 4th release, a date that any number of prospective buyers came to expect. By further pushing back the phone (first from April and now to September) Motorola places its release date that much closer to when the iPhone 5 is expected to be released, and then closer to the carrier-sold Samsung Galaxy S II, which just had its pre-order page launched.The Bionic should still be the first to combine LTE and dual-core but other competitive phones will be hot on its heels.via Cnetlast_img read more

first_imgGoogle I/O is coming soon, and it looks like Motorola’s stealth X Phone could be ready in time to make an appearance. Freshly leaked photos have been leaked to Twitter that show this will be a very different device than previous Motorola Android offeringsYes, leaked photos and specs generally need to be taken with a grain of salt. These pics, however, come from the highly-reputable @evleaks, so there’s every reason to think this really is the X Phone.No, that chunky black surround isn’t a final chassis design. It’s merely a case that’s been shipped with the prototype to keep the X Phone under wraps. A single image of the phone’s back was leaked, too. While it’s textured and looks like Moto’s trademark kevlar panels, PhoneArena’s sources say that it’s polycarbonate.There are a couple possibilities here. First, this is still a prototype. The Kevlar back may be coming, but Motorola may have chosen not to include it at this point in the process. Second, it’s possible that the company wants to keep the price of the X Phone down (possibly in the Nexus 4 range?) and has gone with a less premium material.Then there’s the carrier in the status bar: AT&T. Motorola is better known as Verizon’s BFF, so it’s surprising to see Big Blue’s name there. AT&T has also never debuted a Nexus device, so this would be its first (Nexus X has a nice ring to it) . The X Phone will reportedly launch on both carriers, however.One other interesting thing you may have noticed in the photo is that Motorola logo in the top left corner. The dashes and dots surrounding it aren’t identical in every picture. So these are either three different handsets (which would provide ample confirmation that this is a real device) or the logo is somehow dynamic.So what about the X Phone’s specs? The prototype has a 720p display that measures roughly 4.7 inches, though it’s believed that the final version will switch to a 1080p panel. 2GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage are also in the cards, which make this sound like a high-end device.But with no MotoBlur anywhere in sight, the X Phone could be shaping up to be the next Nexus: a premium device without the premium price tag. Let’s just hope they build enough to keep up with demand.last_img read more

first_img Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram Australia’s Foreign Minister Bob Carr has poured cold water on a federal Labor MP’s call for Australia to recognise FYROM as ‘Macedonia’.Stephen Jones MP, the federal member for Throsby, made a speech on Tuesday in Parliament House, Canberra, asking for a bi-partisan approach be made by Australian politicians in recognising “the Republic of Macedonia under that constitutional name”. Mr Jones described it as “unfortunate that in Australia we are expected to use the anachronistic name, the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, in formal address”.Mr Jones’ electorate has a significant number of people who trace their ancestry to FYROM.After hearing the Throsby MP’s comments, Steve Georganas MP, federal member for Hindmarsh, spoke to Bob Carr on the matter.Mr Georganas told Neos Kosmos: “Minister Carr reaffirmed to me that Australia’s policy on FYROM and the naming issue remained exactly the same, and there are no plans to change it.” “I don’t agree with what Steve Jones said in his speech, and I’ve let him know.”With Bob Carr’s reaffirmation of Australia’s position over the UN-brokered naming process, Georganas says it is important for the Greek Australian community – with a looming election coming up – to make their MPs and those running for election aware of the issue.“Greek Australians need to be asking politicians who want their vote, what that politician’s views are on the subject of FYROM and its renaming,” says Georganas.“Most MPs might not be aware of the issue, and it’s up to the Greek Australian community to inform them. and to let them know what their views are. Sometimes we as a community are falling down in that kind of lobbying.“That’s how you reaffirm and get the federal government to continue its commitment, regardless of who’s in government.”In his speech, Stephen Jones told the House of Representatives that the renaming of FYROM was “unfinished business”, and called upon Australian political leaders “from all sides of politics” to contradict the Australian government’s prescribed position on the naming issue.“Nothing would be more significant that a bipartisan agreement to recognise ‘Macedonia’ by its constitutional name,” he said.The MP alluded to reports that the FYROM government are considering naming prominent streets in Skopje after Bob Carr and Shadow Foreign Minister Julie Bishop, “in recognition of their leadership and their importance”.Mr Jones called on Mr Carr and Ms Bishop to “truly earn this honour” by acceding to Skopje’s wishes. In a statement provided to Neos Kosmos, the Australian Hellenic Council (AHC) said that Stephen Jones had shown a “total ignorance of history” and complete disrespect for UN resolutions over the FYROM naming issue.AHC Victorian State Coordinator, Peter Jasonides described Mr Jones’ actions as “shameless opportunism” and that the Illawarra constituency MP was “trying (unsuccessfully) to undermine Australia’s participation towards a resolution in the ongoing name dispute.“This shows just how opportunistic and shallow a politician he is. His call is contrary to the official policy of his own party; in fact, this policy is one of the few in Australia that has bi-partisan support,” said Mr Jasonides. “He is playing a numbers game, trying desperately to lure voters.”The AHC Victorian coordinator added that he was sure “people from all backgrounds living in Mr Jones’ electorate – Australians who know and respect history – will give him the history lesson that he so desperately needs, between now and election day… or on election day!”last_img read more

first_imgStephen King wants Netflix to reboot Under the DomeStephen King (@stephenking/instagram)Stephen King has recently suggested that Netflix should adapt Under the Dome to make a new TV series. King also wants the new show or a possible movie to follow the plot lines depicted in his best-selling 58th book of the same name.Writing on Twitter, Stephen King suggested that the streaming giant Netflix should adapt Under the Dome. He did not put much weight on whether it should be a movie or a full-fledged TV series. But he added that Netflix should be actually “doing the book.”Under the Dome was a science-fiction mystery drama television series that premiered in 2013 on CBS but was later concluded in 2015 after poor ratings. The series narrated the story of the residents of the fictional small town of Chester’s Mill, when a massive and indestructible dome suddenly cuts them off from the rest of the world – hence the title, Under the Dome.Under the Dome featured how the residents of Chester’s Mill cope up with the sudden claustrophobic event and how they tackle their day-to-day activities and problems. It also featured the story of a small group of people inside the dome itself who had to come together, irrespective of their differences, to solve the mystery of the impenetrable dome.How about Netflix bringing back UNDER THE DOME, only starting from scratch and actually doing the book?— Stephen King (@StephenKing) June 13, 2019The show was an instant success for CBS as it broke all-time viewing record in 2013 but the series faced a sudden downfall from season 2 and their numbers significantly declined in season 3. In addition to this, the series had some amazing reviews in the beginning and had all the potential to become the next big thing for the television industry but in season 2 & 3, the reviews became mixed to worse.As stated above, the show was based on Stephen King’s much acclaimed 2009 novel of the same name but the two differed on several plot points. One of the main difference between the book and the adapted TV show was the role of religion in the book. Stephen King often uses religion as a backdrop in several his stories and narratives and his science fiction book was no different. However, the television adaptation of Under the Dome used different plot devices to carry on with the conflicts.Will Netflix adapt Stephen King’s Under the Dome for a brand new TV series or not, is a question for some other time but it would really be interesting to see those characters breathing life again on the silver screen.last_img read more
