Lumigon T3 premium smartphone boasts of special Scandinavian design

lumigon-t3Not all smartphones are created equal, although there are some models out there which do seem to look a whole lot more appealing than the others. The recently introduced iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus are definitely beautiful devices in their own right, but does that mean that Apple has an exclusive claim to aesthetics in consumer electronics? Not quite, as Lumigon has proven with their T3 smartphone. The Lumigon T3 is a premium smartphone that boasts of a Scandinavian design that simply oozes with class.

Available in stores in Netherlands, Russia, Dubai and at airports around the world, it is certainly not the easiest handset to get hold of, although when you do, you would not be disappointed. The Lumigon T3 gets even more exclusive when you pick it up from Dubai in the form of the 24-karat gold edition, making this double up as a piece of jewellery.

What makes the Lumigon T3 smartphone so special? For starters, it will boast of minimalistic Scandinavian design with a durable steel exterior, while you also get to enjoy innovative features such as a night vision camera as well as the special BackTouch technology that has not debuted anywhere else. On the outside lies scratch and damage resistant glass, with both the front and back of the smartphone comprising of Corning Gorilla Glass. This helps make sure that the 4.8” HD Super AMOLED Diamond display will not end up spoiled by screen cracks.

Underneath the hood lies a speedy 2.2 GHz 64 bit 8-core processor, accompanied by 3GB of RAM with Android 6.0 Marshmallow in tow. There will be 128 GB of internal storage to help you get started right out of the box, with a dual SIM card slot to boot. At the back lies a 4K HD, while the front facing 2K HD camera will have an innovative FrontFlash for perfect selfies even when it is dark all around. The Lumigon T3 is not going to come cheap though, with an asking price of 645 Euros.

5 Office 365 Myths Dispelled

office-365-myths

Office 365 is the future of the Microsoft Office suite. Yes, you can still buy standalone licenses in shops and online, but they’re no longer a cost effective solution. Even though Microsoft clearly wants everyone to make the jump to the subscription version, it hasn’t done a great job of educating people about what it entails. There is a lot of misinformation out there — it can be confusing for those who aren’t tech-savvy. The problem is now so acute that Microsoft has recently published an ebook to dispel some of the myths about Office 365. In this article, I’m going…

A Meat Processing Professional Reviews Resident Evil: Retribution

residentevil-retribution

At last, we have come to this, the most recent available production in the Resident Evil franchise. Mr Paul W.S. Anderson returns to write and direct, and Ms. Milla Jovovich appears in the lead role, alongside many returning faces from times past. The 96-minute entertainment was seen in cinemas in 2012, and will hold its 39-month streak as last Resident Evil film until January 2017, when the final chapter appears.

I wish I could speak of this ending with the regret which is the appropriate accompaniment to all endings, but sadly, this is beyond me. Resident Evil: Retribution is sadly lacking in sparks of interest for either the meat processing professional or the keen amateur.

The story begins with the capture of Ms. Jovovich, and her clone’s memory-modified immersion in a simulated environment. One may note that the memory modification and implantation mastery shown by the Umbrella Corporation seem unlikely, given the complete failures of both their biological weapons and experimental design unit. Perhaps this is an instructive lesson for my readers; the corporation might have happily sold their services as a brainwashing facility, avoiding so much unpleasantness for both the participants and the unfortunate audience of these films.

skill

It is revealed that Ms. Jovovich is inside an underwater laboratory, if one can call any place that operates with such scant concern for basic biosafety a laboratory. Certainly, a large proportion of the Umbrella Corporation budget seems to have been spent on simulated weather, and rather less on introductory courses to controlled experiments.

The place is riddled with former allies, most of them hostile. There is even a return of our friend in Tokyo with the unsuitable footwear. And, of course, there is a full cast of disposable security guards and the like. This is a realistic depiction of life’s fragility, yet it is never satisfactorily explained what these people are doing here, or indeed, given that the plot hinges on a human population that is close to extinction, why characters driven by this fact are happy with such a large amount of collateral damage.

misguided

Given that so much of this production takes place in a simulated environment, one feels that there is a potential explanation for everything that happens–who knows what, exactly, the Umbrella Corporation was trying to achieve? The clones, the unlimited ammunition, the return of the inexplicably threatening large, unwieldy man with a custom tooled weapon; all perfectly rational, if you assume the Umbrella designers were as asinine as their counterparts in scientific ethics. It is somewhat freeing to see all of this without a reference to reality. It has been explained to me that a philosopher has suggested that something similar may be true of our own world–I cannot feel qualified to comment on this.

As we all know, such pleasures cannot last, and we soon return to what is laughably, in these productions, dubbed the “real world.” A fight in arctic conditions makes a mockery of thermodynamics, as climatic conditions that appear similar to those that would freeze exposed skin have no effect on characters wearing body suits and cocktail dresses. But this is the least of the indignities the truth is forced to endure. The greatest is probably the sight of a self-administered parasitic infection granting its host the ability to both propel and expel bullets through her body–even if we grant that, conceivably, an infection could do such a thing, there is surely no time for the relevant musculature and ligaments to develop within the young lady’s fingers.

implausible

We end at the seat of the federal government of the United States, which has apparently become something of a refuge for the surviving humans. Apparently, the final film will deal with some form of last stand, alongside a return (sad to say) of Ms. Jovovich’s magical powers. While such a recurrence is unpromising, it is pleasant to see that three women have survived to lead this stand, alongside two men. Females slightly outnumber males in the US, so this is a demographically pleasing mix, in that aspect, at least. Perhaps one might entertain the hope that a final production can, produce that accuracy in both depictions of meat consumption and the presentation of reality that has been, until now, so sorely missing. As this film finishes, one finds it impossible not to stare towards the future with equal dreams.

The purpose of the Web Compat system add-on for Firefox

If you monitor your Firefox installation (or portable copy) closely, you may have noticed a new system add-on called Web Compat since version 49.x.

System add-ons are similar to add-ons that you install. The main difference is that they are not installed by the user but ship with Firefox or are pushed to Firefox when the need arises.

The latter happened just a couple of days ago when Mozilla pushed two hotfix add-ons to Firefox 49.x to fix issues in the browser.

The main advantage that system add-ons offer over shipping fixes with Firefox is that the method is faster, and that there is no increase in Firefox version. Mozilla can ship system add-ons quickly to fix issues or introduce features without impacting the release cycle.

One disadvantage is that users get little control over these system add-ons. While you may not want to disable Web Compat for instance, you may want to do so with system add-ons like Pocket if you don’t use it.

Web Compat

firefox web compat

All installed browser extensions, user installed and system add-ons, are listed on the about:support page. The Firefox Add-ons Manager on the other hand lists only user installed add-ons but not system add-ons Firefox ships with.

Open about:support in the Firefox browser and scroll down to the Extensions section. There you find listed all browser add-ons.

There is no easy way to distinguish system add-ons from regular add-ons. If you run a recent version of Firefox, you find the following system add-ons listed there:

  1. Multi-process staged rollout
  2. Pocket
  3. Web Compat

Web Compat has been designed to ship web compatibility fixes to Firefox installations independently of releases.

We’d like to create an empty stub in `browser/extensions/webcompat` for shipping webcompat fixes after a release has gone out.

Basically, what this means is that Mozilla may identify compatibility issues and ship a fix for that issue to all Firefox versions without having to create and distribute a new Firefox release.

This is quicker as mentioned earlier so that the issue has less of an impact for users of the browser. The fixes are usually integrated into the next Firefox release so that they get fixed this way as well eventually.

This is especially useful when changes on websites or in apps prevent Firefox users from accessing a page, site or app at all, or if features don’t work because of this.
