Make OS X Faster & Efficient

Because created and designed by one company, hardware and software from Apple can work optimally and efficiently. One of the advantages are when we install OS X, we do not need to fuss looking for drivers for the Mac that we use.

Moreover, because the security system, not many viruses that successfully made to screw up OS X, though there is still malware that managed to infiltrate. It was not to screw up OS X, but rather aims to steal sensitive data or personal in the Mac.

While it is arguably efficient, we can still fiddling with that OS X running faster again.
Here are some things we can do:

Hardware side

T02-436-111-make. Upgrading memory up stuck. Output for Macbook Pro 2012 to the above, this is not possible, because the memory is soldered directly to the motherboard. Even so great a minimum of memory available is quite capable, which is 4 GB. 4 GB of memory is the minimum for all major applications in both heavy-and could not walk comfortably. The bigger the memory, the better.

2. Upgrade the hard drive. Mac can walk comfortably if enough free space available in the T02-436-make-12partisi existing OS X. In order to walk comfortably, should be available at least 30 GB of free space. If you use a heavy application sorts PhotoShop, AutoCAD, or the other, there are at least 80-120 GB of free space on my hard drive. So get used to the data stored on the internal hard drive external hard drives that can have empty space relief. If forced, upgraded hard drive to a larger capacity. If you can, use a hard drive upgrade to SSD. It is still expensive, but the performance is much more hurried.

 

Software side

T02-436-21a1-making. Repair Disk Permissions. Actually this procedure is to check whether the file status in accordance with the original. File status could change as the applications that use them have problems. As a result, the Mac can run slow or weird, such as the application of a sudden go out alone, running slower, slower booting, and other sebagainya.Caranya quite easily, run Disk Utility> click on the existing partition OS X it> click repair permission and wait until the process is complete. If you’ve done repair permissions, more afdol followed by a second step.

2. Reset NVRAM. Non-Volatile RAM or NV-RAM is an OS X application and keep most of the settings that we often use. The goal is that we run the application on the condition that we use. But at a certain point, the NV-RAM will be full and will actually make the Mac went awry. How to reset the NV-RAM is quite straightforward, we turn on the computer and then we immediately pressing Cmd + alt + P + R and press and hold until dueng Mac emits three times.

3. Provide enough free space on the disk / partition OS X is. The trick is to move the data to another hard drive and remove any unwanted applications. With so many free apps available on the AppStore, maybe some of us a lot of the “greedy” to install the free application. In the end, many of these applications are not suitable for us and ultimately make the hard drive so full. Most applications are indeed living discard the application file to the trash. But it does not hurt to uninstall the application using software like CleanApp, AppZapper, CleanMyMac, etc..

T02-436-244-make. Clean desktop. Try not store any files on your desktop as this will slow down the boot. Each boot, OS X will prepare a file on the desktop that can be accessed at any time. If only one or two files it may seem, but we would feel if a desktop full of files.

 

T02-436-255-make. Delete unneeded languages. Mac provides multiple language that is easy to use by people from various countries. Surely we do not need all of the existing language. If only need English only, we better just delete the language that we do not need, especially when they take a big enough hard drive space. The easiest way is to use Monolingual which can be downloaded from http://www.monolingual.sourceforge.net. The trick is easy, just check the language that you want to delete and click remove.

T02-436-26a6-making. Turn off animation. When running the application, mac will display an animation that gives the impression that the application is open from the icon that we double-click the. When the mouse over the application icon in the dock line, the application automatically enlarges. Such animations can we Disable that Mac go faster. Run the System Preferences> Dock> uncheck the choice of animate opening applications. Also do not use the option of changing the existing wallpaper in System Preferences> Desktop & Screen Saver.

7. Set the Startup Item. Some immediate applications come running when OS X booting. Check if there are applications that do not really matter that went along with running. I run the System Preferences> Users & Groups> and check the applications that do not want to run at startup.

 

Mac Monitor Every Time

After performing such optimization step above, of course, we should be able to monitor the Mac that is always in top condition. Some steps we can do include:

T02-436-31-fetched

 

1. Activity Monitor running. This application provides a complete and detailed information firsthand what is happening on the Mac. So when Mac was running slow and do not know why, we can run the Activity Monitor and find out.

a. Button to shut down the application. Once we click on the application process takes a wild and uncontrolled, click the button to turn it off.

b. Percentage of CPU used by an application. Applications that run normally just use cpu power is not more than 10%. More than that, the application will be considered illegal and should be turned off. Applications typically do not have errors and uncontrolled eating up 90% cpu power. No wonder Mac can be slow.

c. This is the part where we can see the other processes of the cpu, such as memory, disk activity, disk in use, and network. Some of them are equipped with a chart showing the current work process.

T02-436-32-fetched

 

2. iStat Menus. This application can display the information that we need in the menu bar, so we only glance we can determine the condition of the current cpu. This application can be purchased at macupdate.com costs 25 dollars.

 

T02-436-333-make. Daisy Disk. Very useful for hard drive clean up when we needed space. Daisy Disk folder instantly displays the big size, so we know which folder has a large file. Can be purchased in the App Store for USD. 95 thousand.

 

T02-436-344-make. Memory Clean. As we know, that we run most of the applications will be put into memory. The problem is, when we close the application, most will still be stored in memory. Over time the memory will be full and the computer was so slow. Used to be the only way to clear this memory just by turning off the computer or restart. Now we can use the Memory Clean with one click direct memory clean. Purge memory several times in order to get maximum results. Download it for free in the App Store.

Sony Xperia smartphones Z

The Water Proofing

Sony Xperia Z’s lips at the Consumer Electronic Show (CES) 2013 in Las Vegas in early January. Because this phone has the security features that is waterproof.

U3-436-SonySmartphone dimensions 139 x 71 x 7.9 mm screen has 5 ˝. With such a wide screen, the display explores the experience is more freely, though it would be difficult to operate with one hand. Smartphone flat box shape does look pretty, it’s just feels less comfortable grip. This smartphone is also layered glass on each side. Those who would like smartphones bodied clean, need frequent cleaning traces of the hand attached to the glass. Dressings glass also makes it feel a little slippery when held.

The placement of the power button and the volume of the right middle, making it easy to reach buttons when holding, either left or right-handed. Micro-USB port, a micro-SIM, microSD, headset jack and has a special cover so that water does not enter into these holes.

Sony Xperia Z screen uses the Bravia Engine 2. 1080 × 1920 pixel image displays sharp colors. When used under strong light, the screen can still display a good image. This screen does not use IPS panels, so that the sharpness of the picture is only valid when it is in plain sight. Once tilted, the color looks a little foggy. The screen has wet finger tracking, so it can still operate even if your fingers wet. But, when in the water, he still does not respond to touch.

One more thing to note is hot. When using a smartphone intensive, especially when connected to the internet, so it feels very hot. Although the heat was tolerable hand, the heat is quite disturbing because the effect on Li-ion 2300mAh battery that is growing quickly depleted. This substantial battery can last all day with moderate internet usage. In addition, the Sony Xperia Z also has stamina mode that turns off the internet when the smartphone is not active. Internet will be active again after Sony Xperia Z used.

This smartphone’s camera using RS 13 megapixel Exmor sensor, the resulting image is quite good. Sony Xperia Z adds many exciting features, such as burst and HDR function. There are also picture effects such as panoramic images and a variety of filters to be creative with the pictures taken. One favorite is the sketch effect. The camera is also capable of recording HD quality video.

Audio business, Sony presents the expiration monaural speaker and stereo sound with headphones. The resulting sound is quite crisp innate headphones in ears, though not too special. While the default mono speakers generate sound quite comfortable to hear. In tests conducted PCplus, Sony Xperia Z can still operate despite being dipped into the water. Turn on the music, until a call. It’s just the sound of the speakers so there selantang usually after dyed. Wait three hours, the speakers back to normal.

Hunger Games themed semi-iterated prisoner’s dilemma tournament

With all the talk surrounding it, crowdsourcing science might seem like a new concept and it might be true for citizen science efforts, but it is definitely an old trick to source your research to other researchers. In fact, evolutionary game theory was born (or at least popularized) by one such crowdsourcing exercise; in 1980, Robert Axelrod wanted to find out the best strategy for iterated prisoner’s dilemma and reached out to prominent researchers for strategy submissions to around-robin tournmanet. Tit-for-tat was the winning strategy, but the real victor was Axelrod. His 1981 paper with Hamilton analyzing the result went on to become a standard reference in applications of game theory to social questions (at least outside of economics), agent-based modeling, and — of course — evolutionary game theory. Of Axelrod’s sizeable 47,222 (at time of writing) citations, almost half (23,370) come from this single paper. The tradition of tournaments continues among researchers, I’ve even discussed an imitation tournament on imitation previously.

The cynical moral of the tale: if you want to be noticed then run a game theory tournament. The folks at Brilliant.org— a website offering weekly olympiad-style challange problems in math and physics — took this message to heart, coupled it to the tried-and-true marketing technique of linking to a popular movie/book franchise, and decided to run a Hunger Games themed semi-iterated Prisoner’s dillema tournament. Submit a quick explanation of your strategy and Python script to play the game, and you could be one of the 5 winners of the $1,000 grand prize. Hooray! The submission deadline is August 18th, 2013 and all you need is a Brilliant account and it seems that these are free. If you are a reader of TheEGG blog then I recommend submitting a strategy, and discussing it in the comments (either before or after the deadline); I am interested to see what you come up with.

Revealed, Microsoft SkyDrive Allow Skype and Tapped

A document reveals how Microsoft is working with U.S. intelligence agencies to read messages from users, including helping the U.S. National Security Agency (NSA) secret unlock code Microsoft, Australia Guardian reported on Friday (07/12/2013).

Confidential documents obtained by the Guardian of Edward Snowden, U.S. intelligence whistleblowers, said the level of cooperation between Silicon Valley and American intelligence agencies in the last three years.

The document, among others, suggests, Microsoft helped the NSA to read the conversation at the new portal Outlook.com by giving the company secret code. NSA has access to Outlook.com including Hotmail before the messages are written in the form of a code (encrypted).

Microsoft is working with the FBI this year that the NSA get easier access to the data warehouse via Prism SkyDrive which has 250 million users in the world.

Microsoft is also working with the FBI to the intelligence agencies “understand” the issues that potential Outlook.com that allows users to use the e-mail alias for them.

In July last year, nine months after Microsoft bought Skype, the NSA is proud to mention that the NSA has been able to increase the amount of video that they can access through Skype as much as three times through the Prism program. The materials obtained from Prism program routinely accessed by the FBI and CIA. One of the documents referred NSA has the name “team sport”.

Snowden documents also reveal the tension between Silicon Valley and the Obama administration. Leading technology companies lobbying the government to be allowed to express the depth of their cooperation with the NSA to address customer concerns in terms of privacy.

Corporate leaders are not trying to claim that they have collaborated and worked with intelligence agencies like NSA documents mentioned in the argument that the process is carried out according to the lawsuit.

In a statement, Microsoft said, “If we increase the capacity (upgrade)-prudok and updating our products, we are not exempt from having to comply with applicable laws, both now and into the future.”

Microsoft reiterated his argument that they provide the customer data “only in response to government requests, and we only serve the demand for specific address or identity”.

Last June, the Guardian reported that the NSA claims to have “direct access” program through the Prism system leading internet companies including Microsoft, Skype, Apple, Google, Facebook, and Yahoo.

3-D Gun Printing: Here’s the Software That Stops It

New software has been developed that aims to restrict the manufacture of firearms that have been created using new 3-D technology.

The world’s first gun made using 3-D printing – called “The Liberator” – was successfully fired on May 6 in Austin, Texas. In just three days the blueprint created by startup Defense Distributed to produce the plastic gun had been downloaded around 100,000 times, according to Forbes Magazine.

Anti-gun campaigners have criticized the project, whilst lawmakers in different U.S. states have moved to pass new legislation to prohibit the manufacture, sale and use of the digitally made firearms. And now Danish startup Create It REAL has produced software that it says blocks users from printing guns in the first place.

“The likely buyers are 3-D printer manufacturers who want to minimize their liability risk and offer a firearm parental control feature to their customers,” Create It REAL’s CEO Jeremie Pierre Gay told CNBC.

“The feature creates a unique digital fingerprint of the firearm…the manufacturer could decide to block the print or to simply give a warning to the user of the potential danger.”

The software has taken a year to develop. The firm realized there was a gap in the market after surveying end users and 3D printer manufacturers. Gay told CNBC that his previous job working with Digital Rights Management (DRM) for technology firm Motorola served him well.

“[We realized] people are interested in the ability to put a lock on their firearms at home, the same should be possible on a 3D printer as a parental control feature. I would say that this feature is customer driven even if they did not know they wanted the feature when we asked,” he said.

“The possibility to make a firearm at home is not new, there are many plans on how to do it on Internet, the problem with 3-D printing is that it could become simply too easy, this feature makes it more complicated again.”

Cody Wilson, the man behind nonprofit Defense Distributed was skeptical that the product would actually be able to prohibit the printing of guns, which are produced as separate parts and then assembled. “The Liberator” is printed with hard plastic and fires a standard .380 caliber bullet. The only non-printed piece is a common hardware store nail which is used as its firing pin.

“Such software must walk a very fine line, of which I’ve no doubt it is incapable…It’s interesting PR to the uninitiated only,” the 25-year-old law student at the University of Texas told CNBC.

“‘The Liberator’ pistol is an assembly of over 17 parts, most of which individually would not set off a detection software unless the exact model was blacklisted. Think about it, springs, hammer, even the grip. These are not ‘guns’.”

‘Wild West’ Regulation

Both New York City and New York State have introduced legislation to curb the making of 3-D printed firearms or ban their use altogether and similar bills have been introduced in California. Linda Rosenthal, a New York State assembly member told CNBC that New York’s bill is currently sitting with the Codes Committee after the legislative session ended on June 21.

“I have all intentions of pursuing this legislation next session,” she told CNBC. “The controversy surrounding the passage of the SAFE ACT (the New York Secure Ammunition and Firearms Enforcement Act) will make passing any piece of gun-related legislation that much more difficult, but I think this is a very important issue that must be addressed before the technology becomes widely available.”

New York State should act as a leader to provide a national model for other states to follow, Rosenthal said, and welcomes the new software that she says is effectively the industry regulating its own behavior.

“It is important that industry and government partner with each other to address this issue. Neither acting alone will be able to accomplish enough to deter dangerous behavior….Given that no technology is foolproof, it is critical that the states have strong tools available to discourage wrongdoing and criminalize bad behavior,” she told CNBC.

“3D printing is a very new technology, and in terms of regulation, it is the Wild West out there.”

Despite the issues surrounding the manufacture of firearms, 3-D printing – creating three-dimensional solid objects from digital models – is gathering momentum and is transforming everything from medicine to home goods. Printers that once cost $30,000 now are priced closer to $1,000 and have the potential to rewrite the rules of global manufacturing.

The market for 3-D printing was estimated at about $1.7 billion in 2011 and could hit $6.5 billion by 2019, according to research firm Wohlers Associates.

IDF San Francisco 2013: Intel to unveil new product optimizations

Intel is set to host Intel Developer Forum (IDF) 2013 in San Francisco, the US from September 10-12 to further discuss its 2-in-1 device plans as well as its latest progress in Android smartphone and tablet development, according to sources from the upstream supply chain.

With new CEO Brian Krzanich and president Renee James coming on-board to adjust Intel’s business strategy, the sources believe the CPU giant is likely to unveil new optimizations for products as well as several interactive technologies such as voice recognition and gesture control at the forum.

Intel may also unveil product designs for its new quad-core SoC Bay Trail-T, which is set to be launched in December, at the forum and prepare related marketing projects.

Intel is expected to showcase smartphones developed with Lenovo, ZTE, Acer and Asustek Computer and may even display its 22nm Merrifield-based smartphones, which are set to be released in the first half of 2014, the sources said.

Since wearable devices have become a focus of IT players, Intel may also announce plans for related developments.
