hifiduino The LG V20 isn’t due to launch until tomorrow, but the company has been busy tantalising us with some of the phone’s upcoming features. Most intriguingly is the inclusion of the first ever “Quad” DAC packed into a smartphone. The term has led to a fair bit of confusion, with some wondering if LG is counting the number of outputs, or if there’s multiple DACs for different audio paths. I assure you that this isn’t the case, but a proper explanation is far more complicated. Of course, that’s what I’m here for. We are pretty certain that the LG V20 will be using the latest ES9218 component from ESS Technologies. The company’s press page features LG’s V20 statement, followed a few days later by a release about the company’s new ES9218 Quad DAC for mobile products. A pretty easy connection to make. Delving into the press release reveals that the ES9218 is a 32-bit 394kHz and DSD512 capable … [Read more...] about What is the LG V20’s “Quad DAC” and how does it affect audio quality?

DigitalBoy05 (Posts: 234; Member since: 04 Jun 2011) I installed it on my 6p and so far when it's on split screen the interface is pretty raw. The two apps kinda look smashed together without much of a border to separate them. Future builds will probably polish it up a bit. Also I still don't see a dark theme. posted on 11 Mar 2016, 09:11 0 5.

Yesterday’s delisting of Turn N Run – literally the night before our review went live, and only six days after the game’s release – highlights a large and ongoing problem in the world of Xbox Windows Phone games. Since the debut of Windows Phone 8, incompatibility with the new OS has been discovered among a number of Xbox WP7 titles. Each of these games has been completely delisted from the web version of the Windows Phone Store, and either partially or fully removed from Store searches on actual Windows Phones. Read on to learn what games have been affected so far, and how Microsoft may be mishandling the Windows Phone 8 incompatibility issues in more ways than one. Missing games from Windows Phone 8 First, let’s look at the list of Windows Phone 7 games that aren’t compatible with Windows Phone 8. As stated earlier, every single title’s Windows Phone Store page is was offline: Big Buck Hunter Pro - Review Contract Killer Dodonpachi … [Read more...] about What is missing from Windows Phone 8?

Back in the day, Networld+Interop was the gala networking event. Exhibitors were numerous, PR reps were mostly women and gracious toward nerds, and I was young and thin with the lights of Vegas glittering in my eyes. Then the bubble gave a wet pop and N+I did a nosedive so steep that for the last couple of years, I haven’t even bothered attending. But I’m here to tell you: N+I is back, and it’s back with a vengeance.I staggered home having been too busy to sleep much and, more’s the tragedy, too busy to gamble or carouse. Then again, I’m broke and old so it’s just as well. But I garnered many useful tidbits at the show, not the least of which was on the plane ride home when Bill Woodall of Siemens let me try his Sennheiser noise-canceling headphones. I’ve seen them and figured it was marketing hooey. After trying them for exactly 30 seconds, I went out the next day and bought a pair. I’m literally never traveling without them again … [Read more...] about N+I has bounced back, and its network operating center is a site to behold
Last week I talked a bit about how best to protect against the vagaries of human error, happenstance, and Murphy’s Law in regard to remote devices. Most of that includes trying to anticipate every possible circumstance that may occur and provide some kind of protection against them, such as remote-controlled power distribution devices that can automatically power-cycle a device if network connectivity is lost or scripts that run on remote devices that can make sure that some form of remote access, such Dropbear SSH, is running and available.It’s the latter — scripts — that I’ll expand on this week. We live in an age where we have very many options for writing interpreted code. Perl, Python, and Ruby are commonly used for CLI control and management scripts, and they offer a plethora of modules that can make all kinds of functions easier to develop. Automating SSH or Telnet sessions, working with SNMP, file manipulation, accessing remote systems — all … [Read more...] about Bash is more powerful than you think
First, some background.I am a hardcore Linux and open source guy. I run two Debian servers: One powers my site Linux Veda and the other takes care of my cloud needs, thanks to ownCloud (and soon it will also host my Kolab server).At home I run a file and media server powered by Ubuntu 14.04 that serves me media through Plex and Emby and also works as the central repository for all my files and data. My main system runs Arch Linux and I also run Kubuntu, openSUSE and Linux Mint on secondary machines. All of my ‘consumer’ devices are powered by Linux, including two Chromebooks, two Android phones and two tablets, a Chromecast and Amazon Fire TV stick.But…I also run a heterogeneous environment. I have a Macbook Pro and an iPad. I do a lot of photography and video editing and these two things still remain weaknesses, not of Linux, per se, but of the software. I prefer Mac OS X over Windows because OS X’s UNIX base lets me use the Terminal; I can install Homebrew to … [Read more...] about Why this loyal Nexus user is buying the iPhone 6s Plus
Terminal multiplexer applications are a great boon to Unix and Linux sysadmins all over the world. They allow sysadmins to start long-running tasks on remote machines, terminate the SSH session to that machine, then connect to the machine again and resume watching the task or check its results very easily. They also allow sysadmins to run several shell sessions within a single virtual terminal, which is of great use for remote administration as well. The uses to which a terminal multiplexer can be put are numerous and, at times, indispensable.By far, the best known terminal multiplexer is GNU Screen. In fact, many people who use it in their day to day work are not familiar with the term "terminal multiplexer", in much the same way that many people who use Microsoft Windows every day are not familiar with the term "operating system". GNU Screen has been around for a long time, and to many it is synonymous with the very concept of a terminal multiplexer application.This is changing … [Read more...] about Is tmux the GNU Screen killer?
In the early 80s, mathematician, computer scientist, and author Rudy Rucker was one of two writers introducing the idea of cyberpunk to science fiction fans. The concept of computers merging into our reality and the need to maintain our individuality is more relevant than ever in this digital age.As one of the founders of the cyberpunk movement, Rucker talked about the concept on Tuesday at IdeaFestival 2017 in his hometown of Louisville, KY. In 1982, when Rucker published his first novel, Software, the idea of computers invading our every waking moment was a distant concept. Now it's reality, as everyone walks around with smartphones in their pocket and a library of knowledge at their fingertips.But what is cyberpunk? Easy. It's cyber plus punk. "In a nutshell, punk is give the finger and walk away," Rucker said. "Cyber is a sort of all purpose word. What cyber is about, it's about two things we were noticing in the 80s and this was the fusion of people and machines and the fusion of … [Read more...] about IdeaFestival 2017: The cyberpunk future is here
