A test video with the Sony DSC-HX9V - zoom in/zoom out

Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-HX9VSony DSC-HX9V zoom test - video. One of the good features of the compact digital camera Sony DSC-HX9V is that you can use the huge 16x optical zoom while making a movie. The picture is stable while zooming in and out and the overall quality is very good. Of course that is thanks to the perfect optical stabilisation and Sony's Exmor R CMOS sensor.
Here is the Sony DSC-HX9V review, including all the features and specs of this incredible camera as well as a full video review.

Sony DSC-HX9V zoom test - video

And here is the full Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-HX10V review. This is the upgraded new version and actually the successor of the Cyber-Shot DSC-HX9V. One of the differences is that the new model has 18.2 million effective pixels rather that 16.2 million in the DSC-HX9V.

Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-HX10V also has better maximum light sensitivity at 12,800 ISO vs 3,200 ISO in the Cyber-Shot DSC-HX9V. The rest of the features and specs are pretty much the same, of course the DSC-HX10V is a bit more expensive as it is a newer model but many camera critics claim Cyber-Shot DSC-HX9V does the job just as well for a much lower price.

Among other changes are an opportunity to start the camera during a call option for taking pictures during recording using buttons to control volume. Removed is the restriction of Samsung, which prevents the launch of the chamber, where there are less than 15% of battery capacity. To install the modification, you will need root access to the filesystem on my phone.

BMW 6 Series Gran Coupe test drive and review

BMW 6 Series Gran Coupe test drive and review

Quick test drive and review of the all new BMW 6 Series Gran Coupe

6-Series Gran Coupe
BMW 6-Series Gran Coupe revealed
BMW 6 Series Gran Coupe review. Today we are going to take a closer look at the all new 4-door luxury sport coupe from BMW.
The 2-door version of the 6-series is very popular worldwide and one of the most distinctive GT cars ever. It is also a very desirable car so BMW decided to use this and created a 4-door coupe which is slightly bigger and is able to accommodate four people in comfort.

The BMW 6 Series Gran Coupe is a very dynamic vehicle. All of its turbo engines deliver a lot of power and torque for quick acceleration and maximum speed.
The wheelbase is identical to that of 5-Series - 2967 mm. The height is 1372 mm (or 90 mm less than the 5-Series), while the width is 1920 mm.
 As to the total length of the model, it is 5006 mm - 51 mm or more compared to CLS.6-Series Gran Coupe has frameless windows, and to reduce the mass of the car doors and hood are made of aluminum, while the front wings and tailgate are used special plastics.In terms of what is happening under the hood there are three options. 640i has a 3-liter straight six-cylinder turbo engine with 315 hp Ministry of Education and torque of 450 Nm. It allows the car to accelerate to 100 km / h in 5.4 seconds and reaches a top speed of 250 km / h650i uses twin-turbo 4.4-liter V8 engine with 443 hp and torque of 650 Nm. This allows the car to accelerate to 100 km / h in 4.6 seconds and raises again 250 km / h. Finally comes the 640d, which has a 3-liter diesel engine with 309 hp and torque of 630 Nm. While this is the most needy unit, it offers a pretty decent car dynamics. Speaking of acceleration of 5.4 seconds and a top speed of 250 km/h.

Whichever engine, it will be standard equipped with six-speed automatic transmission, although it offers a six-speed manual. Standard car has rear-wheel drive, but the option is 650i 4x4.
Expected eventually to be placed on another diesel, a hybrid version and a sportier M version. This means that one can expect a 3-liter turbo diesel with 245 hp.
A hybrid version with a 3-liter gasoline engine and electric motor with another 54 hp and twin-turbo V8 rated at 555 hp to 570 hp.

Systems Integral Active Steering, Dynamic Damper Control and Active Roll Stabilization combined perfectly to help Gran Coupe to provide sufficient quality and safe handling. Of course, this is not all. 6-Series four-can show off with ConnectedDrive, Surround View, Rear View Camera, Parking Assistant, night vision system can recognize pedestrian warning system when changing lanes, blind spot system and display the windscreen. And though not all - there are adaptive LED headlamps (with short and long LED lights, parking light and daytime running lights), each type is regulated separately by direction of the vehicle.

BMW 6 Series Gran Coupe is good for driving on twisty country roads but it best suits on the highway where it is 'calm' even at very high speeds.

The new Samsung Galaxy S3 impressive 8-megapixel camera with features from which to choose from such as: autofocus, LED flash, geo-tagging, for functionality touch focus, face detection and smile detection, image stabilization, and 1080p video capture.

Internet update - new IPs

Internet update
Thousands of millions new IP addresses will be added for Internet customers

new IPs

Internet update - this week on the Internet will be made very significant change and if all goes well, users will not even feel. The change is scheduled for Wednesday 00.01 am GMT and will enable the number of IP numbers - unique web addresses, to be increased to reach thousands of millions to only 4 billion available now. For those addicted to computer operation is known as "start global Ipv6", where Internet operators will move permanently to this new system, abandoning the previous one, known as "Ipv4". The new standards are introduced, as the number of IP addresses is exhausted.

For the full transition will take several years and older devices and networks "Ipv4" should continue to operate as usual. Most users should not feel anything, says Leo Vegoda the Internet Corporation for domain names (ICANN), which manages the system of Internet addresses. IPv4 protocol does not guarantee longer enough IP addresses so that each device has its own. This means that users must share the same address at the risk of their work on computers or portable devices to slow significantly.Some users may need to take their new modems or routers to their computers, but most ISPs are already prepared for the transition.
Large Internet companies like Google and Facebook and equipment suppliers such as Cisco encourage companies and individuals make the transition, arguing that this will make communication between home and business users more efficient. The current network operating system Ipv4 long will not be outdated. But if a user works with others already on the system Ipv6, it is better to make the transition as soon as possible, experts advise.

Peugeot 208 review
Peugeot 208 is a modern looking car

Peugeot 208 test drive and review. As one of the leaders in the small cars segment Peugeot is always pushing the limits of its small vehicles. No matter if we take a look at the design or the technology Peugeot's superminis are always one step ahead of the competitions. Even top German brands are struggling to take part in this overcrowded segment but without great success.
The Peugeot 208 is a supermini, positioned in the B-segment.
The 208, developed under code name A9, will be built on the PSA PF1 platform. The weight is to be reduced by 173kg compared to the outgoing 207 and still offers more space than its predecessor.
The exterior of the Peugeot 208 is bold and aggressive and looks very modern. The design of this vehicle will definitely better suit to women rather than man but it is a great car for young people as well.

Peugeot 208
Peugeot 208
Peugeot 208 rear
The interior of the 208 isn't impressive as the exterior of the car but it offers plenty of room and comfort for a car of this size. It is more functional rather than on artistic interior design but there are few interesting design features like some of the dash lines which you won't see in any car.
Peugeot 208 dash
Peugeot 208 interior view
Peugeot 208 is offered with three new very fuel efficient petrol engines as well as the 1.4 HDI which is a real record breaker when talking about fuel economy - it can achieve figures of under 3.5 liters per 100 km.
As an overall the 206 is a nice small and modern car which is going to be a great success in Europe car markets.
