LG Refrigerator Signature Previous

LAS VEGAS – LG would not let win by the new modern refrigerator Samsung, which has a color touch screen on the door.

Presented Tuesday morning during a press conference at CES 2016 fair in this city, the new LG refrigerator Signature also seems to have a touch screen, but it is actually an upgrade to its previous model. When you touch, it becomes transparent and lets you see what’s inside without opening the door.

And better yet, the door opens only if you get close laden foods. If you activate the sensor foot on the bottom, hands-free access to the refrigerator. It is reported that the sensor can even determine the difference between people and pets, so do not open the door to a curious dog.

It is an elegant T type refrigerator, with a French door at the top and two doors in the freezer at the bottom, so inevitably is an expensive model. Once we know the details of the price and date of arrival on the market, we will update this information.

I hope that one of the doors of the freezer uses less cold temperatures, such as the Samsung Chef Collection, and it is interesting that does not have a dispenser in the door.

Its features, I criticized that of door-in-door in the past. Adds only a small level of convenience, but sacrifices temperature control the connected departments, but in this case I seem useful things. I like to take the time to decide what I’m going to lunch, and now I have to feel guilty about it. And the fact that the door opens automatically help me not to leave it open when I get loaded food market to place inside.

I’m curious to know exactly what is the difference between people and pets. During the demonstration, the presenter of LG had to keep your foot under the sensor a second, and perhaps that is enough to prevent your dog causes the door to open if front of the unit. But it also opens up just a little, so you need to use the elbow or knee to open the door completely.

To help mitigate the lack of uniformity of temperature on the doors, LG has coated stainless steel inside and did not change its system compressor. I like to hear that except doors, LG refrigerators we’ve tested so far kept very well the temperature level.

If the style of a transparent door next to stainless steel catches your eye, certainly it has a look of high-end, although unusual, and if you are looking for a cooler front, the unique features of this LG seem to be of great help.

Soon we will list more detailed review of the new LG refrigerator.

How to configure the keyboard in Spanish and English on Android 5.0 Lollipop

The text autocorrect on mobile devices is a blessing or a curse.

I’m sure that at some point this function has totally changed what you wanted to say, making funny or embarrassing. Also, if you are used to write messages in different languages, Spanish and English say, you know that most often self-correction works even worse.

How to configure keyboard Android 5.0 Lollipop in Spanish and English

Fortunately, Android 5.0 Lollipop brings not only a keyboard with a new design, but also offers you the ability to configure it so you can use in different languages.

This is not a new feature and we had already seen how to configure the Android keyboard in two languages, but Android 5.0 Lollipop changes a little what we knew on the keyboard.

Sets the keyboard Lollipop Android …

Configure the keyboard to work, for example, in Spanish and English is relatively simple and can even include a key for voice commands can easily operate in different languages ​​selected.

To begin, open the device settings, select Keyboard and Language, located in the section called Personal.

Go to the Keyboard option called Google (referred to as keyboard settings Google) and then Languages. Disable the Use the system language and then select Spanish (USA) and I nglés (USA) in the section Active input methods.

Dale returned with Android button until you get back to the Language and keyboard settings. Then select Dictator Google Voice> Languages. Select Inglés (US) and Spanish (USA). Return to Language and keyboard settings, select Current keyboard and then select keyboards. Make sure the Google voice typing option is enabled so that you have the ability to make dictations.

And ready. After this you can start using the keyboard in both languages. You’ll notice that your keyboard now includes a microphone at the top right of the keyboard (on the last row of the keyboard) and a key with a world icon located on the lower left side, right next to the space bar. Generally, when the microphone key does not appear, the icon is located directly in the field where we will enter text because the application integrates voice functionality, so it does not necessarily depend on the keyboard.

On the other hand, if you select the key on the microphone, the voice command is activated and you can start talking.

A useful tip is that when you hold down a vowel the possibility of entering it with accents or other options enabled.

Personally, I like to keep this setting to improve a little self-correction in English and Spanish and to use voice commands in both languages, while maintaining installed the original Android keyboard.

For more news about the new version of Android look at our guide tips and tricks Android 5.0 Lollipop.

Prevents your Facebook friends know that you have read a message

We have all felt the pressure to respond immediately after opening a message, knowing that the sender can see that you’ve read. Or the anger that breaks out inside after sending a message, see that they have read and did not receive any response.

While in theory read receipts seem to be a smart move, sometimes they subtract more than they add.

Prevents your Facebook friends know that …

When installing Chat for Facebook Privy your Android device, you can check incoming messages from Facebook without fear.

The application needs to greatly improve both the user interface and in terms of the features (you can not start a new conversation from the application or look attachments), but delivers what it promises.

An icon of a closed eye with an incoming message in the application indicates that the message has not yet been marked as read, while an open eye indicates that the sender can see that you’ve read.

I recommend adding the application shortcut to one of your home screens and use it to read incoming messages. You can also answer them directly from the application and, thus, all messages in the conversation are marked as read.

How to tell if a page has corrected heartbleed

Heartbleed has been of the greatest vulnerabilities of digital security we have seen and can be very confusing for many. Fortunately, we have seen how we can protect ourselves from this security flaw and we have submitted a list of some sites have corrected this vulnerability. Although our list really helps, we can not place all the web pages that exist in the world because it would probably be almost infinite.

To see if any specific page has been affected by heartbleed, you can visit the page LastPass or you can just download the extension Chromebleed specially designed for the Chrome web browser.

How to tell if a page has corrected heartbleed

The application also allows you to activate notifications of every page you visit. To do this, just give right click on the application icon in the Chrome toolbar, then> Options and select Show all Notifications.

I had the opportunity to test the extension for a couple of days and I warned about a couple of pages. It is very difficult to ensure that works perfectly, but it can be a tool extra security to protect you.

The new Intel chip PC claims to be the fastest and will arrive this fall

The glory days of the PC industry, when people buy new computers powered by ever-faster chips, are over. But Intel thinks his latest PC processor will win some hearts in the coming months.

During its developer conference Intel Developer Forum to be held in San Francisco, Intel CEO, Brian Krzanich, demonstrated on Tuesday PCs powered by the seventh generation Core processor. PCs were dealing with intensive tasks, such as editing high-resolution 4K video captured by a GoPro camera and playing the first-person shooter Overwatch.

Is the “CPU outperforms Intel has ever built,” said Krzanich. “We are already distributing the seventh-generation Core chips to our partners and launch PC devices to market this fall.”

The seventh-generation Core processor, which receives the codename of Kaby Lake, is the first chip for PCs that has come out since Intel decided to slow down its development of processors. Previously he presented new chip designs and new manufacturing technology, but Kaby Lake refines an existing design with an existing manufacturing process.

The constant improvement in the speed of processors has stagnated, however, as PC sales have fallen and consumers have flocked to smartphones powered by chips from other companies. But Krzanich remains optimistic in view of Moore’s Law, the observation named after Intel co-founder Gordon Moore that the number of electronic components on a chip doubles every two years.

“Moore’s Law is far from dead,” Krzanich said.

These Apple Watch will also test and the displays will show some features, but also be modified to allow the buyer to interact and answer the clock.
