Sierra macOS: These are Mac compatible

macOS Sierra is the new Apple operating system for Mac computers – but not all.

Like iOS 10, the mobile operating system for iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch, macOS Sierra is compatible with a specific list of devices.

The list of supported Mac computers with Mac OS is as follows

If your Mac is on this list, congratulations, because you will receive news from Sierra macOS like Clipboard platform, Siri on the Mac, Apple Pay on the Web, among others. Find all the news from Sierra here.

To find out what time of year and what year is your Mac, we will explain below. Note that Apple names its models in three different ways: Principles (Early), Mid (Mid) and Late (Late), besides the year.

So you know if your Mac is compatible with MacOS. My MacBook Air, but with four-year-old Sierra itself will be updated.

Go to the apple icon in the upper left corner in the menu bar. Click on the Apple and select About this Mac, a window with general information on your Mac, as the model, processor, RAM and serial number will open. There appears the year and what season it is your Mac. Now corroborates the model of your Mac with the compatibility list above.

The difference between macOS Sierra compatibility and OS X El Capitan is very short, but it leaves several models with OS X El Capitan without the possibility of receiving macOS Sierra. El Capitan was compatible with Mac 2007 and 2009, but Sierra leaves out all those computers. In addition, Xserve has no MacOS version.

macOS Sierra is available as a beta for developers since Monday, a version of the beta to the public arrive in July (for which you can already register) and the final version will arrive in the fall.

The five most expensive apps in the App Store

In the Apple application store is everything and everyone. Many of these apps are free, while others are priceless – seriously.

Most of the most popular and downloaded in the Apple store applications are free or at most cost $ 1.99. This is why many think twice when you have to pay more than US $ 5 for an application.

But if you think $ 5 a price, be prepared to meet five of the most expensive applications store Apple – who served six years of existence in July.

This application is also available in versions for the state of New York, New Jersey, several states, among other options.

Apple to request more information about their policies to price apps, but at press time had not responded.

Previous Project Tango tablet

Google has just launched what is possibly one of the best tables of the year – one that is not intended for consumers. Project Tango tablet (or Tango Project) is aimed at professional developers interested in working in 3D or depth detection programs. Available in white or black, the tablet 7 inch Google has a starting price of US $ 512 (the international availability yet to be announced).

Although its features are as robust as those of the best tablets out there, it is technology monitoring and detection depth and 3D motion what really sets it apart. Some of the built-in sensors include a standard accelerometer, gyroscope and compass, but also comes with a camera motion tracking, a barometer and a 3D depth sensor. The 7-inch tablet has an IPS screen with 1,920×1,200 pixels resolution screen and Corning scratch-resistant glass.

Do not run the latest operating system from Google, Android 5.0 Lollipop, but has instead opted for Android 4.4 KitKat.

Within this tablet you will find a powerful Nvidia Tegra K1 processor with 4GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage. In addition to its capabilities NFC and LTE, also it has Micro-HDMI and USB 3.0 ports ports and space for microSD and SIM cards.

In terms of design, the Tango tablet is not as refined as Google Nexus 9, but because Tango is aimed at developers and not consumers that is something we understand. That is, their physical appearance is not important when compared with their tremendous inner potential.

Tablet Google Project Tango is available for purchase now. We will be updating this article as we have more details on the tablet.

This is a developing story. Follow this site for our entire coverage developer conference Google I / O 2015.

Microsoft lowers the price of the Xbox One: a new console in sight?

Rumors that Microsoft is preparing a new Xbox console today charged more strength, thanks to Microsoft announced a downgrade of US $ 50 to the price of its console launched in 2013, the Xbox One.

From this week, Microsoft reduces the price of the Xbox One to US $ 299, discount also apply to the packages or bundles.

While this reduction could be just a temporary promotion to stimulate sales of the Xbox at this time, it could also suggest that rumors of a new Xbox could be true. It is important to note that the announcement comes just weeks before the E3 gaming conference begins.

According to several rumors, the new console could carry the name “Slim”, while others suggest it could be up to 40 percent smaller than the current Xbox One, integrating 2TB of storage and a higher price.

If you’ve waited to buy an Xbox One, this might be a good time to do it and take advantage of the rebate. However, it would also be worth waiting a few weeks to see what Microsoft and Sony (PlayStation) have prepared announced during E3 2016.

this site will send a contingent to Los Angeles from 14 to 16 June to bring you all the details about the fair most important game.

Pentax K-3 Preview

For, last camera dSLR high-end, K3, Pentax improvement inside and outside it; he had previously presented at the K-5 II / IIs camera, integrating a new, sensor, new design, new autofocus system new system, measurement and better performance. I had the opportunity to spend time with an initial model that showed some problems in the (expected) firmware did something that prevented reports of image quality and performance, but overall it looks like a; promising start with some interesting changes. As for the fans, the brand that do not require the latest and the best, the K-5 II and IIs remain, being sold, but at a lower price, but Pentax has not said with, exactly what the price.

Like the K-5 IIs (and the Nikon D7100), the new sensor 24 megapixel Pentax K-3, completely abandons the optical low pass filter (OLPF, for short, English). But sometimes you want to blur the light of this, filter, especially if you know that the moire be a problem. So Pentax does something to address this concern: K-3 can be used; a mechanical system of image stabilization to compensate lightly; pixels in a circular motion, horizontal or vertical, but appears to be unavailable; in movie mode. To compensate for the increased vulnerability of the sensor; now there is a vibrant piece of glass coated thereon, to protect and, remove dust.

Unfortunately, the new autofocus system does not have the optimization Live View, but, Pentax says five sensors autofocus are for low light. In addition, Pentax implements a more granular RGB measurement and, using data from the light meter to supplement autofocus;. As the Canon EOS 70D camera, the K-3 implements zone focus, but not, shows the area, but only the selected focus point in; prefocus. Appears select the center of the area more often (which is good). Similarly, the camera keeps focusing the expanded area, automatic.

According to Pentax, the new display features an improved coating on the prism, offering better; refraction and reflection for sharper images, with a slight increase, but not really noticed the difference. In addition, this is the first camera; support USB 3.0.

The, performance improvements include continuous shooting at 8.3 frames per second, which puts the Pentax K-3 camera ahead of the competition. In addition, the camera offers a stabilization enhanced image and improved; shutter durability. Pentax brings his movie mode with options; 1080p / 30p and 720 / 60p, along with a microphone and headphone port. The camera, Pentax also features a; option of 4K (3,840×2,160). The filters now work in raw + JPEG modes and, film.

The; design is not completely renovated, but has many significant changes, compared with the K-5 series. Mode control can be locked, but not, I am sure your application and it seems exaggerated. Pentax has also adopted, the convention of a switch to change from video to photography, with a, button dedicated to Live View / Record.

The, new navigation buttons are cleverly designed to move; diagonal (as you would do when selecting focus points) and I, that I like the Pentax controls that Nikon or Canon.

In, overall, I liked the camera interface, which should be familiar to, Pentax users, but the buttons have spread a little. Normally in other cameras in the brief information screen, you must press of a; button to navigate the screen. In the, Pentax, you will see all the important settings on the control screen, but you’ll have to press different buttons to change each. For, change multiple settings in one screen, you have to go to a; screen with lots of information that is difficult to read quickly (because all; the icons are similar). In the K-50 camera that’s not so bad, because you do not have, as many features as the K-3.

The; Pentax K-3 has a flash that has a sync speed, rather slow and the camera does not have Wi-Fi functionality. Instead, the, company offers a Pentax Flucard card (optional), which allows wireless sharing via the web browser.

The, lack of some optimized functionality (Live View) autofocus is, really negative, but I find the Pentax lenses are quite slow, anyway. However, I believe that current Pentax camera photographers, who have waited long to upgrade, will find important reasons, do it with the Pentax K-3.

Preorder the Galaxy Note 7 is already a success in several countries

The Samsung Galaxy Note 7 seems to bring enough new features to captivate many, at least I suggest presales in various parts of the world.

In South Korea, Samsung Galaxy presales Note 7 would be twice what the company achieved with the presale of Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge, according to the publication The Korea Herald. Samsung achieved sell more than 200,000 Galaxy Note 7 in just two days, making the cell more bought in presale Galaxy in South Korea to date.

Also, Mark Childs, president of media for Samsung in Canada revealed the blog MobileSyrup that preorder the Galaxy Note 7 has been well received in the country, calling them “exceptional” and that there is no doubt that there is a “significant demand” the Galaxy Note 7 blue.

In addition, Childs said that the great response presale shopping in the Galaxy Note 7 has exceeded expectations.

The Samsung Galaxy Note 7 is the first of the series to be waterproof, it is also the first cell of the South Korean company to integrate iris reader, allowing only unlock the phone with him.

In addition, the Galaxy Note 7 has a Snapdragon 820 (Exynos 8890 eight-core o) quad-core processor, 4GB of RAM, USB-C (USB Type C) port, new interface, Android Marshmallow and will be updated in the future to Android Nougat 7.0.

The Galaxy Note 7 is a preorder in the US, South Korea and Canada, among other countries and will be available on August 19th. You can learn more about the Galaxy Note 7 features, price and news here.

Samsung took several moments of film at CES 2014

When, Tim Baxter, managing director of Samsung in the US, invited Bay on stage, he was speechless, because the monitor from, where he was read his lines did not. Confused, he left the stage after a few, few seconds felt like minutes.

But, the moments before and after this singular event, Samsung confirmed its, size and ambitions and one of the most recurrent trends in electronics fair; so far: connectivity and integration of all the devices we use in our life daily (a very happy life, if we stick to, images of families that manufacturers usually pass in their conferences). We saw in the presentation of LG.

“The, home is the most important place in our lives,” said co-chairman, executive Samsung, BK Yoon, opening the session. The need for, protect, shape it to our liking and that meets our needs are, “the trends that will shape the home of the future and we will bring; a huge opportunity for growth.” With “We will bring” refers to, themselves, very ambitious Samsung.

Baxter initiated its participation with a reference to “Internet of; things,” a phrase that until recently did not mean much. Today is more, it is suggesting clear: a home where all our devices, connect to the Internet and are managed and controlled from a central (telephone, intelligent) through a common language (operating system or platform).

A, Baxter example he is to communicate with Galaxy Gear smart watch to leave, the house for air conditioning and lights know we will not be there, for a few hours and go out. Voice commands, although they did not come in, talk Samsung, are essential to ensure practical and daily use; of these objects. As Baxter says, Samsung imagines “talking things, among them to create extraordinary experiences.” It remains to be seen.

As, part of the platform, Samsung announced new apps NBA (basketball) and, PGA (golf), to offer these sports to your menu so more content, integrated into all screens.

One, the large consumer concerns is the little 4K content available, on the market today, but it seems that Samsung read them thinking and, announced agreements with Paramount, M-Go, DirecTV, Comcast, among others, to bring; UHD content to Samsung screens.

For, in one of the few moments that caused a sigh at the end of this segment, audience (a good one) was when Samsung put a UHD screen of 85 inches, which he called “folding” (bendable, in English) with pressure a button changes from flat to be curved. We believe that it could be mere sensationalism.

Although, it was not an explosive announcement, the company took the charge of his line; tablets in the US, Nanda Ramachandran, to announce a new Pro series: Galaxy; TabPro and Galaxy NotePro (with stylus S Pen). Both tablets come in 12.2-inch and TabPro also presents models of 10.1 and 8.4 inches. WQXGA have screens of 2,560×1,600 resolution, Android 4.4 KitKat and, 2.3GHz processor quad core. We will give all the details of these more, later. Among the goodies they offer, you are the multiwindow function, lets see four windows simultaneously and covers designed by fashion, brands like Moschino.

Jolla Tablet gets $ 1 million in 48 hours

Jolla Tablet has raised more than US $ 1 million in its first 48 hours of exposure on the crowdfunding website Indiegogo, a campaign which will still remain 19 days.

The first three batches of tablets were sold out almost immediately, forcing manufacturers – former employees of Nokia – to put a new benchmark price. At the time of its launch the first 1,000 buyers paid US $ 189 per tablet, the following, US $ 199 and the third batch of 2,000 buyers paid US $ 204. Those wishing to pre-purchase now and support the company will have to do with US $ 209.

The full price Jolla Tablet will be US $ 249, so still remaining new milestones for the acquisition of the device, whose first financiers begin to receive in May 2015.

In addition to pre-acquisitions, all persons who wish may make donations in any amount, starting with US $ 1.

The device Jolla has come to flexible funding, indicating that although the company did not achieve the goal, it would keep the proceeds.

Jolla is a Finnish manufacturer of mobile devices that emerged last year following the proposal of former employees of Nokia who wanted to see in use the MeeGo platform, which eventually reconverted Sailfish OS.

The tablet will run the second version of the operating system, will have a 7.9 inch screen, an Intel quad-core processor, speed of 1.8GHz, 2GB of RAM and 32GB of internal memory.

On one side, 360: the future of smartphones is in the double chamber

The Hawkeye Corephotonics module is thinner than most cameras, but offers a much better performance.

Forget larger screens and higher resolution, even more powerful processors, because the main factor that will make you buy a new phone technology Dual Camera Corephotonics.

After its debut two years ago, this Israeli company is finally ready to incorporate its technology to new phones as soon as the third quarter of this year. The new system promises a dual camera optical zoom without moving parts, while allowing a reduction of optical noise in images that is not available on mobile sensors already sold.

At the World Congress Mobile Devices (MWC, its acronym in English) 2014, Corephotonics said that phones with its new technology could reach the market later that year, but two years have passed. The delay is frustrating, especially in light of users want something new and advanced.

When Corephotonics introduced the two-camera technology in 2014, benefits were evident soon after. In 2015 the first generation was ready, and there was demand for this technology, which has been increasing, “says Eran Kali, VP of Sales and Licensing Corephotonic, with whom I met again this year in Barcelona.

“However, in 2015 the supply chain was not ready for double cameras. I am pleased to report that at this time all the components of demand, development and maturity of the supply chain are present. This applies to the manufacture of cameras and also for the implementation framework of the processors. ”

Although Corephotonics declined to confirm if their technology was used in new phones LG G5 and X Cam, an executive of LG said the technology on their phones was developed in the company, and does not seem to share the same characteristics as that of Corephotonics because no It has a comparable optical zoom.

It is not the first time the smartphone industry test double cameras. With the rise of 3D a few years ago, phones like the HTC Evo 3D dual camera used to take pictures in three dimensions, which could be reproduced in 3D display, but the technology never went from being a novelty.

This time is different. For the less advanced system, Corephotonic technology uses two cameras, one with a fixed focus telephoto a narrow field of vision, and one with a wider angle, and combines the images with algorithms to improve the picture. Corephotonics says the system is a ‘computational camera’ and argues that improves resolution, reduces image noise in low-light environments increases the dynamic range and depth analysis. more advanced modules, such as the new Hawkeye shown above, using a different method, discussed later.

And from what I can see, it works, and amazingly well. Corephotonics demonstrations at Mobile World Congress are the same as we saw two years ago, but with much higher quality, more optimized. The images in low light have excellent details and much less noise, something phone manufacturers have tried to achieve with larger sensors.

The quality of the image with optical zoom used in this picture is much better than the old digital zoom.

Corephotonics has three models ready for use on phones. The first is a combination of cameras 13 and 8 megapixel camera with a maximum optical 3x zoom. The second, less bulky, is a combination of two 13 megapixel cameras, although only take pictures in black and white, which enhances photos in dim environments. The third model is one called “Hawkeye” and has two 13 megapixel cameras, one normal and the other with a proprietary technology that has an optical 5x zoom. It also has image stabilization.

Although cameras use Qualcomm Snapdragon processors, Corephotonics says it is working to use other processors, such as the Exynos, Samsung, and Mediatek. In fact, I say that a solution with the Exynos is almost ready and could materialize at any time.

The point is that the phones do not impress us as much as before. Everyone has almost the same specifications, the same cameras, storage space, and the differences are in design surface characteristics, water resistance and if they have fingerprint reader. The phones need something new to stand out, and this technology meets that need.

How many times have you wanted to zoom in or zoom out, or you do not like how it came out because you did not want, or could not, use the flash? This technology solves all that and means another nail in the coffin of compact and simple cameras.

And manufacturers using the Android operating system are not the only ones who could benefit. It is rumored that the next phone from Apple, the iPhone 7 will have a similar technology, commissioned another Israeli company that was working on improving the quality of phone cameras.

There is also a physical limit to the size of the sensor that can be used on a phone. HTC tried it once with 4-megapixel camera did not work them well, and although the new Samsung Galaxy S7 has a larger sensor, no optical zoom, which means you can not zoom without losing quality. That said, the performance in low-light environments new sensor that Samsung is using looks impressive in demonstrations.

This image courtesy of Corephotonics shows your slim camera module with another competition.

If Apple rumors are true, we will see an iPhone 7 optical zoom and other manufacturers will have to adapt. Forget virtual reality and mobile payments; this will be the feature of the new phones this year because its advantages are obvious, and those who use the phones to take pictures have something that catches their attention once again.

MacBook Pro at half price

This is a great time to continue to hold Apple’s inventions, buying its older products at discount prices. The iPhone 6 is a little gem and Apple Watch conquer hearts in the not too distant future, but the products that received no updates are still excellent, and you can now find many at discount price;. An example is this MacBook Pro, that Daily Steals reconditioned and has limited time to US $ 999. (Its list price is US $ 1.999). Definitely not the newest: it came out in 2012 and does not have the Retina display of the latest models. However, it has an Intel 2GHz Core i7 processor, 4GB of memory, 500GB of storage and SuperDrive to see and burn CDs and DVDs. This MacBook Pro comes with OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard, you can upgrade to Mavericks relatively easy and free;. The Apple store has the same model, also reconditioned, to US $ 1.109, plus tax, with free shipping. Those US $ 109 matter, but I mention this offer because it includes one-year warranty from Apple and comes in original packaging Apple manuals, prayer cards and even a cloth to clean the screen, something I’m not sure Daily Steals to offer .; Daily Steals model comes with a 90 day warranty. For me, if the product is defective, you will discover within this period. And for US $ 109 less …;? The offers mentioned in this note apply only to US and they are subject to availability, expiration, and other terms of stores and suppliers.
