Goodbye OS X El Capitan, hello macos Sierra. For the new update of the operating system of the Mac, Apple made in the simplicity. One way to better match other Apple systems, iOS, and watchOS in particular. And this nominal approximation is also felt in the functionalities. With Sierra, the link between the different products of Apple is more advanced. Let’s see what’s so amazing about this new Apple OS!
ICloud Drive, the indispensable. Already present on the previous version of macOS, cloud Drive, the file synchronization system in the cloud, has been significantly improved for Sierra. While previously saving files from certain applications in the cloud, it can now automatically backup all files on the desktop and in the “Documents” folder. The two places where the most important files are usually stored.
Best of all, the arrival of an application “cloud Drive” on iPhone and iPad allows finding in real time the files present in these folders of the Mac remotely on smartphone or tablet. A system that is practical in everyday life and avoids many forgetful or transfers on USB stick when working remotely without its computer.
Siri, but with discretion. In general, MacOS Sierra takes back many features coming from iOS, the operating system of the iPhone and iPad. Siri, the voice assistant for Apple, does not escape and integrates the computers of the brand. Dedicated features and queries have been designed for computer use. If it is still possible to ask Siri for the next day’s weather or schedule an appointment, the wizard can also search the files on the computer.
In practice, Siri works quite well, but the use is not always easy. Without earphones in a noisy work area, the voice assistant does not always understand the user’s requests. Those who wish to use Siri will, therefore, have every interest to do so with headphones or headphones.
A better file management system
Photos, Messages, and iTunes at iOS time. Several other applications also adapt to the output of iOS 10. First of all, “Messages” is now compatible with the latest features of its binocular on iOS. It is, therefore, possible to send and receive giant emojis, stickers or messages written in invisible ink.
The “Photos” app adds the Memories discovered with iOS 10. The functionality that orders and groups the images taken during a trip or the same person, for example, has a dedicated tab on Mac. Finally, iTunes reorganizes itself in the same way as the Music application on iOS. Navigating between songs stored on the computer and those accessed via the Apple Music Streaming Service becomes simpler.
The tabs for everything, the videos to have fun. In the straight line of the features coming from iOS, the “picture in picture” or “image in the picture” in good French makes a small place on the Mac. It is, therefore, possible to view a video from iTunes or Apple’s browser “Safari” in reduced size while performing another task. Only problem, relatively few online video services are compatible to date. If Vimeo is compatible with the function, neither YouTube nor Dailymotion is currently supported.
Classic Apps available like Clean my Mac 3 for example which is a must have for Mac maintenance! More on this FB page or WP Nettoyer Son Mac
Two designs, standard exterior specifications and a desire to offer old games but also recent ones … here are the first pieces of information we managed to gather about the Atari box.
Many things remain to be known about Atari’s Atari box, its first console for years, but the venerable manufacturer and developer at least decided to show the design of his machine. It is via a newsletter to its subscribers that the firm has unveiled the pictures below, as well as some initial information about its objective.
The first news about the Atari box
Naturally offered in modern version red/black and in old school version way wood of the Atari 2600, the Atari box keeps its dark entrails for the moment. We just know that it has an HDMI port, 4 USB ports, an Ethernet port, jack and an SD card slot.
The presence of the Ethernet port is accompanied by important information in the newsletter: the Atari box will offer classic Atari games like the NES and SNES Classic Mini of Nintendo, but also “current video game content.” It remains to know what this means exactly, but the objective of Atari is certainly to attract as much the fans of the brand as the others.
What about performance?
It is remained to know the performance of the machine, its mode of operation (console open in Android TV or closed?) Its price, the games that will be offered or its date of availability. Atari’s strategy is to disclose information little by little to “do things right” and warns that there will be many steps in the coming months. We must, therefore, be patient.
The new DJI’s Phantom 4 is a new model of a well-known and extremely popular brand among casual pilots – DJI Phantom. At Mungi, we fell in love with the new version of this already acclaimed drone and will be using it for our next annual meeting in Dallas.
Look around when you’re outside hanging out with drone pilots and it’s very likely that at least a few of them will own a Phantom drone. Compared to its predecessors it is slightly easier to fly and harder to crash. With a few significant enhancements, it seems fit the series and to be a step in the right direction. What has changed?
The awesome features
– Collision avoidance The first significant change is the new collision avoidance feature, which gives your remotely piloted aircraft a bit of autonomy regarding finding and avoiding obstacles. The new front camera helps your UAV avoid hitting trees, walls, and other obstacles on its way, making it easier to use for beginners and a bit safer than the previous versions.
This new feature gives you the chance to choose a subject that you want to focus the camera of your DJI Phantom 4 on – it can be anything, from a person up to an object like a bike or a car which your RPA can follow and keep recording. This is great, especially if you are trying to record a movie focusing on a particular person or object. To do that, it uses the same technology as it used in collision avoidance, but this time, the focus is not on the obstacle but anything it has to follow.
The third interesting feature, while not that new and groundbreaking, gives you the possibility to get the live feed from the drone’s forward-facing camera straight onto your mobile device; that way you can tap anywhere on the screen to point your UAS into that direction. The drone follows your orders smoothly, and it’s not that hard to control it using the mobile app.
How does it look
On the outside, this UAS hasn’t changed much, compared to Phantom 3. It’s made of glossy plastic, and it lacks the coloured bands on the arms; those are finished with a shiny metal, giving the whole machine a very professional look. If you look at it from a distance, there is no significant change noticeable, but when it flies a little bit closer to you, it is easy to notice the more attractive and slightly more aggressive changes in the design. The controller is now also shiny to better match the drone.
Overall user experience
Thanks to the new features, it’s a lot of fun to follow people, control it using simple taps and fly without having to worry about avoiding obstacles. It’s enjoyable though definitely not for beginners. Despite having the anti-collision system it’s still not super safe as it only works for the front-facing camera, so you are not protected when the drone is flying to the left, right or any other direction.
There are three different speeds which the drone can achieve. In the standard mode, it’s capable of reaching up to 35 mph; with the new feature, collision avoidance, turned on, it can go as fast as 22 mph. If you want some real speed, you can turn on the new “sports mode”, in which it can reach even 45 mph, what is a superb result for a typical retail drone which isn’t advertised as a racing drone. Even with higher speeds the video stream is very clear, and there are barely any lags. The quality of recorded video has improved compared to the previous versions; the changes are visible in the streaming process – compared to a few other unmanned aircraft systems, this one almost never loses connection, what is a big improvement.
– One of the biggest advantages of DJI Phantom 4 is its three new features. The (finally) added collision avoidance mode makes it a great tone for beginners even though it’s not that easy to control. The “sports mode” is perfect for casual racers and everyone who would love to try racing but wants to buy a universal drone.
– One of the best drones on the market available for personal use.
– It’s proof that changes in the Phantom series are going in the right way.
– It can record top-notch videos without any noticeable lag.
– There are some claims that this RPA is five times more stable than its predecessors. It also holds the exact position much easier and delivers much smoother footage making it an excellent choice for everyone who is into filming using drones.
– It’s made of very high-quality and durable materials, increasing it’s safety and life span.
– The collision avoidance works only for the front camera, so you still have to be very careful when you are flying the drone towards any other direction.
– Compared to a few other unmanned aerial vehicles available on the market, it is still not a fully autonomous UAV, even despite having a great tap to control feature.
– The tracking feature is great once you lock it on something or someone; unfortunately, it’s not that easy to catch the object and lock on it. The system likes to tell you that the chosen object is too small or too far away.
. Still, the new features make it an excellent choice for anyone looking for a modern and affordable (despite the high price, when you consider the features), RPA.
DJI Phantom 4 raises the bar, for a drone which isn’t targeting any professional audience, it has a very high-quality camera, very useful features which can be used both by beginners (collision avoidance) and a bit more professional pilots (” sports mode”). Despite a few technological limitations which aren’t a very big drawback in a drone of that class, it can be recommended with confidence to anyone who wants to learn the art of drone flying as well as everyone who is looking for a universal and high-quality machine. The drone can be used to fly around your neighbourhood, race with others or create amazing and high-quality footage – recommended!

If you use Twitter, then you know how useful tweet chats can be. They’re an excellent way to connect with like-minded individuals and make connections you might not usually make. If you’re new to tweet chats, hopefully, the tips below will help you out when first getting started in the tweet chat arena.
1. Use a reliable Twitter client
Twittr client for twitter
The first thing you want to do is use a reliable Twitter client to follow the chat. Nothing can be more frustrating that trying to keep up with the chat when the software you’re using keeping timing out or lagging.
At Mungi our client of choice is TweetChat.
Reasons we use it:
Slow down the flow of the chat if it’s going too fast
Smart pause lets you read what you’ve missed
Feature and Block users, keep track of those you want and ignore those you don’t want to
Toggle font allows you to view the chat at a readable level
There are other ways to track the chats; the important thing is to figure out what features you want then try it out to make sure it works for you.
2. Keep your tweets short
When interacting in the chat, it’s a good idea to keep your tweets short enough so they can be retweeted and so others can add their remarks onto it. Also, chats tend to go by pretty quickly even if you do use TweetChat to slow it down so making your tweets scannable means the other people in the conversation are more likely to read your tweets, reply to them or retweet.
3. Listen and participate
After moderator asks question Q1, Q2, Q3 et.c, you should also respond with A1, A2, A3, etc. It will help others understand what question you’re answering in the chat. Be mindful of others in the chat and interact with not only the Moderator but the others in the chat as well. There’s more than just you and the Moderator in the tweet stream.
At the end of the chat thank the Moderator & other peeps at the end of the chat you followed or engaged with during the chat. Then take some time to try and connect with others you might have missed the opportunity to interact with during the chat. More often than not some people keep tweeting long after the “chat” has ended.
4. Track the chats
Sometimes chats are so fast and full of great content, it can be overwhelming. Amazing nuggets of knowledge can be missed in the blink of a tweet. One of our favourite tools is HashTracking.com. HashTracking is a powerful free and paid analytics service.
From full transcripts of chats to snapshots of tweets, impressions and reach, there is also top 10/top 20 lists that help analyse the audience of the conversation. That’s helpful to see who are the leaders of the discussion, who makes the biggest impression and who you might want to follow.
5. Show your passion
If you’re participating in a Twitter chances are it’s something you’re passionate about or something you want to learn more about. One way to hit it off with people in the tweet chat is to talk about why you’re passionate about the topic. If you’re looking to learn you’ll connect with people that can help you out, or if you already know a great deal it’s a chance for you to shed some knowledge and help out.
