Canon EOS 5D Mark IV DSLR is built for the great outdoors

Canon EOS 5D Mark IV DSLR is built for the great outdoors

In order to stem the assault of smartphone cameras, many camera makers are trying more and more to appeal to beginners, amateurs, and selfie lovers. But if professional digital photographers are starting to feel left out, the new Cann EOS 5D Mark IV DSLR will probably remind them that they’re still the most lucrative customers. Boasting of a full-frame 30.4 megapixel sensor, 61-point Dual Pixel CMOS Autofocus, and all the bells and whistles of a very capable digital camera, the EOS 5D Mark IV lends itself well to almost any situation, but most especially when taking in nature’s breathtaking beauty and spontaneity.

CrossOver will soon run Windows apps on Android, Chrome OS

CrossOver will soon run Windows apps on Android, Chrome OS

Yes, you read that right, but don’t worry (or perhaps be worried), it isn’t as straightforward or as magical as you might think. CodeWeavers, creators of the CrossOver software that lets users run some Windows software and games on Linux and macOS will be starting a tech preview of CrossOver for Android, which will do the same for Android devices and Chromebooks. Of course, there will be rather big limitations to this almost miraculous arrangement, from what devices you can run CrossOver on, to which Windows apps you can run.

Nexus smartphones to get Project Fi Wi-Fi Assistant feature

Not all Nexus devices have been privileged enough to officially get the newest Android 7.0 Nougat release, but it seems that Google will be throwing them a bone. Somewhat. The Android maker has just revealed that it is bringing a feature previously exclusive only to its Project Fi customers to all Nexus owners in select countries. Wi-Fi Assistant, which helps users save on data by connecting to “verified” Wi-Fi hotspots, will soon be available to all Nexus users running Android 5.1 or higher.

Researchers suggest ancient round ‘tools’ were actually weapons

Researchers suggest ancient round ‘tools’ were actually weapons

Ancient stone objects are often rudimentary in design and, due to their age and possible exposure to the elements, sometimes lacking in finer details. This can make it difficult to discern what exactly any particular discovery is, and few things are more ambiguous than simple stone spheres. Were previously discovered round hand-sized stones used as tools? Researchers have thought so, but a new study suggests they may actually have been used as projectile weapons.

Superbook wraps up Kickstarter campaign with nearly $3m record

Superbook wraps up Kickstarter campaign with nearly $3m record

Superbook, the system that turns your smartphone into a laptop, has wrapped up its Kickstarter campaign with runaway success - it raised nearly $3 million in funds, making it one of the most successful tech crowdfunding campaigns in Kickstarter history. As we're previously reported, Superbook is a shell of sorts with the hardware needed to turn your smartphone to a laptop once plugged in. The idea behind this device — and others like is — is that modern smartphones are pretty powerful, and owning a full-fledged laptop on top of them is redundant for many people.

Endangered pack of gray wolves to be exterminated in Washington soon

Endangered pack of gray wolves to be exterminated in Washington soon

Washington state officials have been given the go-ahead to exterminate a pack of 11 gray wolves after they were determined to be behind attacks against cattle. The state is estimated to only have about 90 gray wolves total spanning 19 packs, and the controversial decision to eliminate one of the packs — called the Profanity Peak pack — will reduce the overall percentage of these endangered gray wolves significantly. The pack, however, has killed more than a dozen adult cows and calves with no sign of stopping.

This desk changed my life

This desk changed my life

The following is an Ergotron WorkFit-D Sit-Stand Desk Review - with a couple of Ergotron add-ons. Earlier this year it was apparent that my working situation was not going to be able to work any longer. I had neck pain as well as upper and lower back pain from the less-than-optimal working conditions I was providing for myself. I decided to seek out the folks at Ergotron to take some of their products out for a spin. I told them my situation and we decided that it'd make sense for me to test out several items: the WorkFit-D Sit-Stand Desk, Neo-Flex Underdesk Keyboard Arm, and the LX Dual Side-by-Side Arm for monitors.

High Galaxy Note 7 demand leads to delays in some regions

Expectations for Galaxy Note 7 sales were high, and it would appear that the phone has managed to exceed them. According to Samsung, the number of pre-orders has been so overwhelming that the company is now forced to delay the phone in some regions where it has yet to launch. That's definitely a problem, but as far as problems go, this is one of the better ones to have.
