Question by mrlizard8: How to extend volume control on car amplifier? Basically I have a small Dual 150 watt (RMS) amplifier. My radio is a bit older and has no low level RCA outputs or subwoofer volume control and Im to cheap to upgrade it, Im also to cheap to buy a newer amp. Basically my question is: is it possible to fabricate something to extend the volume control from the trunk to the front of the car. Could I just buy a potentiometer and some wire and do some soldering, or is there more to it than that. Thanks in advance for any help. Best answer: Answer by Noah W dont think so. save up some money buy some new gear Add your own answer in the comments!

iPhone OS 3.0!
by HOSTMEI R on DECEMBER 2, 2011

iPhone OS 3.0!

Image by so Another Apple announcement, another Flickr blog. Here goes First off, it looks good. Developers obviously have gotten the most benefits, but what do you expect from an SDK intro, you know? I will not mention the various developer APIs, as most of you probably arent interested. I will, however, go into detail about the other things that were introduced. #1: Copy & Paste! It was about time. Not sure why this wasnt in the first release of the software. According to Apple, there were Security Issues before. Support is global in all of Apples apps, and it will be easy for third-party developers to work it into their apps. Execution seems simple enough, although well see how it works in real life. #2: Landscape Support: Safari always had landscape support, but now it is found in most of Apples default apps as well. Mail, Notes, Stocks, & SMS all have it now. This is great, as I like the horizontal keyboard, having larger keys, and I do send quite a bit of email from my iPod. This should make things faster While on the subject, more than one photo can be sent at once now. #3: MMS: For me, not a big deal, as I have an iPod Touch. However, it seems it has been implemented well. Supports contact data, audio, pictures, etc. Again, not sure why this wasnt in the first release. #4: Push Notification: Yeah, this was supposed to be announced last year. Apple says they had complications. Anyhow, it will be the same as it was demoed last year, allowing apps to give notifications if something happens via network service. #5: Bluetooth: Now supports P2P sharing of LEGAL things (sorry, pirates), as well as stereo audio, wire-free. On first glance, this would seem to only affect iPhone right? Well sort of iPhone Edge will not get the stereo audio, as it doesnt have that hardware. But, remember the Bluetooth chip iFixit found in the 2nd Gen Touch? While it was originally

designed for the Nike+ kit, Apple has now Unlocked it and it will also do the file transfer and A2DP. #6: Tethering: Sort of. Support is built-in by Apple, but the carriers will have to be dealt with. Apple seems confident that tethering will happen soon. #7: Calendar Compatibility: It can take new calendar data, as well as subscriptions. #8: Ability to purchase things from inside apps: Things like e-magazine subscriptions. #9: Voice Memos: Apple added a basic voice memos app to the iPhone. Unless thirdparty apps can find a way to add extra features, I see this as Apple effectively killing those apps for iPhone. However, the iPod Touch will not get this app, so the third-parties can still develop for the 2nd Gen Touch. #10: Notes Sync: Briefly mentioned. Not sure how this will work, but it will be nice. And finally Spotlight! Yay! As those of you with Macs know, Spotlight is Apples global search tool. It looks for anything, anywhere. Now, its on iPhone. To the left of the first homescreen is a searchbar, which you type in your query. It will search calendars, mail, contacts, iPod library, etc. for what you are looking for. Ill definitely be using this. Search will also be in the default iPod app, something which I was just bemoaning the lack of last night. Overall, I view this as a big update- definitely calls for a new version of the OS. However, there are some things still missing #1: Flash: Frankly, I couldnt care less. I have a vehement hatred against Flash and would rather not see it on the iPhone. For entire websites that are written in Flash and want iPhone support, change your website design to HTML. Flash is an awful way to write an entire website. You deserve to not be on the iPhone if your whole site is Flash-ified. *End rant* If Flash were introduced, I would hope there would be an option to turn it off. That would be the first thing Id do.

#2: Background Apps: For the most part, Im okay. The only apps I truly want to run in the background are my RSS viewer, Twitterific, and Pandora. The others I really dont care about. #3: Better App Management: This is the only thing Im actively disappointed about. As I have four pages of apps, Id like to see some form of management. For example, apps could have a Genre which they are assigned to. You then have the option to order apps by Genre. There would be multiple ways to do this. Free for iPhone, .95 for iPod Touch. So there you have it. Way too much text crammed into a Flickr description box. I know Ill be forking over .95 in Summer for this update. Question by CUCKOO: is this a good laptop? lenovo? i bought this @ USD 1125 USD Lenovo Consumer Y410 775732A Lenovo Consumer Y410 775732A Notebook PC P 54,984 Specifications: Intel Core 2 Duo processor T7100 (1.8GHz) 2MB 800Mhz Intel PM965 2x512MB 667MHZ DDR2 / 2GB 120GB S-TAT HDD CD-RW/DVD-RW Slot-in Rambo 14.1 WXGA(1280800) TFT LCD

The right place for computer speaker Waxing Poetic, or rather, Vinyl
by HOSTMEI R on DECEMBER 11, 2011

Waxing Poetic, or rather, Vinyl

Image by kqedquest I experimented with different light settings on the camera to achieve this warm effect of the light on the surface of the record. Check out all the grooveslooping around the circumference of the record. Carl Habers optical scanning and digital audio preservation tool, IRENE, takes high-speed photographs as the 78 rpm record plays. Twenty-five spins of the record are needed to produce a large digital file, roughly 80,000 pixels long, that can be analyzed by the computer to produce the corresponding sound from the record. Each image produced by IRENE is turned into a WAV audio file roughly 7 seconds long. Image Source: Sheraz Sadiq Question by generic_cyberperson: Where can I download a tool which will let me record audio being played on my computer, without a mircrophone? i.e., a program which will grab sound as it comes out of the speakers, or whatever. Like a

screen recorder, only with sound instead. I preferably want a free tool which isnt limited in terms of trial time. Best answer: Answer by Teleprovider Hypercam more prefer over FRAPS. Know better? Leave your own answer in the comments!

connecting with giant pandas

Image by woodleywonderworks At the new Fujifilm Giant Panda Habitat, two new yards feature several enriching features for both animal and visitor enjoyment and add more than 12,000 square feet to the pandas outdoor exhibit. Additions to the indoor exhibit include a new room with a rocky outcrop and waterfall, another den, and more visitor viewing space and informational exhibits.

from Smithsonian Web Site nationalzoo.si.edu/Animals/GiantPandas/PandaExhibit/defau Experience Asia Trail with an online and audio tour from Fujilfilm. The creation of this state-of-the-art research facility and habitat is made possible in part by Fujifilm, who donated .8 million to the Zoos giant panda program, the single largest sponsorship ever provided to the Zoo. Many sustainable design strategies, such as planted green roofs to reduce stormwater runoff, were incorporated into the new habitat. Other elements include a solar hot water system; natural tree-resin bound paving material, instead of petroleumbased asphalt, on the visitor paths; recycled rubber; sustainably harvested ipe wood, which is naturally resistant to pests and rot; and dried bamboo, because it is rapidly renewable resource and does not deplete the environment when harvested. more Asia Trail green elements Outdoor Exhibit The pandas state-of-the-art Fujifilm Giant Panda Habitat is designed to mimic the pandas natural habitat of rocky, lush terrain in China. Each element has a purposefrom helping the pandas stay cool in hot weather to giving them a place to hide when they need privacy. There are rock and tree structures perfect for climbing; grottoes, pools, and streams for keeping cool; and shrubs and trees, including weeping willows, corktrees, and maples, and several species of bamboo. Water-cooled grotto has cold-water pipes in the walls that provide a cool respite. Low trees and shrubs provide shade and cover. Fog grove creates a misty retreat from the heat. Pools and streams offer refreshing dips on hot days. Rocks and fallen trees allow for climbing and exercise. Visitors can enjoy two levels from which to view the pandas, several areas where they may be just inches away from the bears, separated only by glass, and the new Clint Fields Conservation Plaza, where they can learn more about efforts to save pandas and their habitat through the stories of real people here and in China. At the Plazas Decision Stations, people can get a sense of the complexity of conservation choices by watching videos about wildlife-people dilemmas and deciding which actions to take. Other features at the Plaza include a topographic map of the mountains of central China and exhibits about alternative economic activities to reduce habitat destruction. Portraits of villagers, scientists, park rangers, and others, with the real tools of their conservation work, will be

highlighted. Multimedia displays of photos, video, and audio will give visitors a sense of place, introducing them to the sights and sounds of Chinas wilds.

University of Maryland Introduces iPads as Part of Mobility Initiative

Image by University of Maryland Press Releases COLLEGE PARK, Md As further demonstration of the universitys strong commitment to new educational technologies and innovation across diverse media, all 75 students

enrolled in the University of Marylands newly-launched Digital Cultures and Creativity (DCC) living and learning program within the Honors College were given an Apple iPad at the start of the fall semester (above Terp Freshman Victoria Lai receives her new iPad from OITs Michael Hooker). This device will be fully integrated into the programs curriculum, where it will serve as the basis for content delivery and instruction. Students will also have the opportunity to learn to develop their own applications for the iPad. The devices were handed out in late August when students move onto campus. This latest action is part of the universitys Mobility Initiative, a pilot program studying whether mobile technology enhances the student education experience. "DCC is thrilled to be joining the universitys innovative Mobility Initiative," said Dr. Matthew Kirschenbaum, Associate Professor of English and Director of Digital Cultures and Creativity. Kirschenbaum adds, "Many of DCCs students are digital natives who will come to campus already having programmed their own applications, made their own electronic music and art, or designed their own interactive media. They will use their iPads in the context of a curriculum that immerses them in the surprisingly long and complex history of thought behind todays new media devices. They will learn to develop new content for the platform, as well as use it to consume rich media integral to their education." DCCs faculty includes Associate Professor of Computer Science and former director of the University of Marylands Human-Computer Interaction Laboratory Ben Bederson, who has already developed applications for the iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad. For nearly two years, the University of Maryland has been studying whether incorporating mobile technology enhances the student educational experience. Sponsored by the Office of the Senior Vice President for Academic Affairs and Provost, the Office of Undergraduate Admissions, and the Office of Information Technology, the Mobility Initiative began in fall 2008. During its two years of existence, 280 freshmen in the Banneker/Key Scholarship and Maryland Incentive Awards programs have been given either an iPhone or iPod touch to test inside and outside of class. In addition to the 75 DCC students who received an Apple iPad in the fall, approximately 160 new freshmen in the Banneker/Key Scholarship and Maryland Incentive Awards programs were given either an iPhone or iPod touch devices bringing the number of student pilot participants to approximately 515.

During the initiatives first year, more than 130 student participants used the mobile devices to substitute for student response devices (also known as clickers) in class, to access the mobile versions of the universitys portal and learning management system, and to participate in varied special activities, such as research scavenger hunts. For its second year, the pilot study expanded to include additional students, professors, and learning opportunities. New efforts were undertaken to support faculty in their efforts to incorporate mobile learning into their courses, including offering a set of iPod touch devices that can be loaned out to students in a course to support specific learning activities. Additionally, an Office of Information Technology (OIT) and Center for Teaching Excellence (CTE) partnership gives participants in the CTEs Summer Institute for New(er) Technologies the opportunity to explore integrating mobile learning activities into their courses with support from OIT. "Four fall courses and five spring courses have been part of these efforts," said Ellen Yu Borkowski, Director of Academic Support in the Office of Information Technology. "Some of the mobile learning activities in these courses include recording assessments of high school PE teachers, recording use of media as part of an international research study, collecting and distributing interpretations of poetry, and using the devices recording and playback features in support of learning foreign languages. OIT and the CTE plan to continue this partnership into the Mobility Initiatives third year," Borkowski said. Additionally, for the spring 2010 semester, a new upper-level computer science offering was introduced to the universitys curriculum. The new course, "CMSC498I: Selected Topics in Computer Science: Programming the iPhone," covers topics such as iPhone development tools and fundamentals; user interface design; media considerations related to gaming, audio, and video; and usability and quality assessment. As part of the course, students are developing new mobile applications for the iPhone, specifically focusing on ones that can be deployed and used across the university as part of Marylands overall efforts to support mobile devices on campus. Digital Cultures and Creativity is sponsored by the College of Arts and Humanities, with co-sponsorship from the Maryland Institute for Technology in the Humanities, the Department of Computer Science, and the College of Information Studies.
