As the title of the great film by the Coen brothers is not a country for old people , I wanted to title this new entry, “It’s not a Mac for photographers” and I think this entry will bring tail, a lot of tail … more than anything because the human being seems to have clear belong to a single faction of almost everything, Coca Cola or Pepsi, McDonalds or Burguer King, Nikon or Canon, Audi or Mercedes, Pc or Mac. In this case I give my humble opinion as a professional photographer and that no doubt I want your comments, as long as they are not faltones hahaha, in this belonging to a group there are people who take it to the tremendous.
Well, at the beginning, I want to say that I really differ a lot from the apple brandbe a good brand for the professional of photography, but beware, only in terms of product range is concerned because it is clear that there is nothing better in terms of optimization than working in such a closed and dedicated environment as Mac, as long as just be work, the power of your devices with a superior optimization of the resources that make up these computers make it a delight in many cases to work on them, but make no mistake. Has Apple really thought about photographers? We all have Apple as the “patron” of the multimédia and creative professionals, although it is true that we all know that a designer, illustrator, layout artist or videographer as well as all professionals of the cinema or drawing almost ninety-five percent are going to have an Apple work environment if they can. But what about the photographers and why do I write this entire entry? What about all that big group that are creative wedding photographer, advertising, sports etc and working with images looking for the highest quality? Well, in my opinion Apple has abandoned us or wants us to be the poorest group in the multi-media sector.
Picajoso with Mac? As a photographer, yes, I admit it.
I mean, yes, I admit it, I also fell into the temptation and attractiveness of Macintosh, all my life with a “sad” PC nothing snobbish and nothing minimalist and wanted to move me to Mac, have a work environment and brand, be from the tribe of glasses and beard, here began an arduous task of finding solutions, as long as it did not leave me my humble economy in Apple’s most expensive product, I looked for solutions and products in different Apple Stores and I had no result and everything for something as simple as the monitor, those who are professionals know very well that a photographer needs a matte monitor and we invest part of our capital in monitors that have a very good quality of reproduction of colors, density and depth,We work with fixed images and we have to edit without being bothered by inopportune brightness and with the most accurate reality and Apple blogers mios does not have any product with a Matte screen, before it had them but now “nasti de plasti”, the problem is how everyone knows that Mac currently has very powerful laptops but their screens are the milk in terms of brightness, resolution etc etc, and is in a way a “visual deception” very good, yes, and attractive, on the other hand Mac Mini was never recommended to me for falling short, it could have been a perfect solution for attaching a monitor but it was not the definitive solution either,finally has a cast of perfect computers like the iMac but they have a built-in screen and it is not plan to install another screen losing in some way the screen of the Mac because I already work with two matte screens, so all we have left is to invest 3.349 crushers according to the price of their website in the Mac Pro and I am not willing to such an investment because we know that the iMac have very good and fair but they do not facilitate it with a matt screen version, well yes, a great solution that they gave me in an Apple Store was that after disbursing more than € 2000 for a computer, will stick an anti-gloss film to the screen, come on, superior quality at the height of Eizo or NEC.349 crushers according to the price of their website in the Mac Pro and I am not willing to make such an investment because we know that the iMac have very good and fair but they do not provide it with a matte screen version, well yes, a great solution they gave me in an Apple Store was that after disbursing more than € 2000 for a computer, I will stick an anti-gloss film to the screen, come on, superior quality at the height of Eizo or NEC.349 crushers according to the price of their website in the Mac Pro and I am not willing to make such an investment because we know that the iMac have very good and fair but they do not provide it with a matte screen version, well yes, a great solution they gave me in an Apple Store was that after disbursing more than € 2000 for a computer, I will stick an anti-gloss film to the screen, come on, superior quality at the height of Eizo or NEC.
So, I have determined that Mac is not for photographers unless you are a mini-millionaire, I know that many people will complain that I am upset because I do not feel like spending more than 3000 euros on them, but having material as they have, the iMac , so beautiful, so precious and minimalist and balanced, why do I have to invest in a cucumber like the Mac Pro? This has been my humble opinion, of course I bought the Pro but for less than that price there are superb PCs with similar powers to edit. I await your opinions and answers because I think it is a very questionable topic, greetings.

The last days are loaded with news from the Canadian multinational. In this case, it is the BlackBerry Podcasts application and PGP Blackberry, with no limitations for customers that use both the BES and BIS services and that fans of this type of audio and video programs will appreciate .
Known its development since last April due to leaks, RIM has decided to release the application coinciding with the arrival of BlackBerry OS 6.0. However, the application is available for BlackBerry smartphones with BlackBerry OS v4.6 or higher.
Users can search the Podcast Catalog for keywords, categories, channels or a download top, and subscribe or simply preview or listen to a podcast briefly before confirming the subscription. In addition to streaming, it is also possible to download episodes and store them on the microSD cardto enjoy them at any time. With the added advantage of integrating push notifications from the platform itself to notify users of content updates available on their channels.
Although we must say that at the moment there are few podcasts that we can enjoy in our vernacular , having to settle for other languages until the content park is expanded.
It is no secret that many manufacturers of mobile terminals are eager to have a large platform through which they can facilitate both applications and services of various kinds. A claim for potential users before a wide offer while a new line of business with which to collect greater dividends for the coffers of the company. BlackBerry Podcasts is a living example of where the shots go in RIM.
Something that will surely affect the thinking minds of the companies involved to properly squeeze their brains to offer more and better content. After all, competition always benefits the user.
We live in a world where technologies increasingly occupy a more important role in our day to day. This new era has provided us with a series of apps and software that has simplified many of our daily actions.
The appearance of these new technological tools like www.chefmod.com also arises in the hospitality sector, becoming elements that can significantly facilitate the management of restaurants and bars.
Here are some of the apps that can help you most in your business:
This app helps to make the shopping list in a fast way, facilitating the order from the restaurants to the suppliers. From the mobile, through the platform, you can choose the product, see the price and place the order directly with the supplier that supplies it.

This app also allows you to schedule your orders, locate the less common products and also have controlled costs, since you can see the price of your order before sending it.
The benefits are also transferred to the suppliers, since they save gas by rationalizing deliveries, they can reach areas where they did not arrive before, and they are always available to their catering customers without the need to visit them regularly.
It has different apps dedicated to improving hotel management.
The waiter or comandero :
It allows you to send orders in whole or in part depending on what has priority over the order of service (first, second, dessert …).
Similarly, each product request arrives at its configured destination, since within the kitchen, each request can reach a specific section (cold, hot, etc).
When paying, this app allows you to make the payment from the terminal itself by card without having to go to the main POS.

Control the performance and efficiency of your team. Manage VAT, prices or products of the day or special season, etc. Register products or categories by adding photos from your library or iPad camera.
We love animals always want the best for our pets . A correct and balanced diet, an up-to-date schedule with all the vet check-ups and a minimum knowledge to know what they need or what happens to them at all times and, consequently, to be able to act. If it is difficult to separate ourselves from our pet, as much or more than from our mobile phone, the best thing is that we get several applications that can be very useful and whose information we always have at hand. Pay attention to the dogbreedindex.com Top 5 this week, your dogs, cats and other animals will thank you.
Pet Master Pro
If you do not want to miss even a single detail of what concerns your pet, Pet Master Pro will be your great ally. This application works as a complete compilation of information of interest , starting with the fundamental data of the animal (breed, age, weight, …) and following other more specific aspects, such as possible allergies, special needs, treatment received , etc.
We can also upload photos with which, for example, record their growth, reflect the visits to the veterinarian and record future revisions or indicate the vaccines that have been administered. With Pet Master Pro nothing will be overlooked.
If Pet Master Pro meets your expectations but you are looking for an application with a more attractive design and in Spanish , you should give MascotasOnline a chance. With a cleaner and clearer user interface, it also allows to record all the information related to visits to our pet’s veterinarian (vaccines, medications or special treatments that have been administered, antiparasitic …), as well as the care received in the Barber Shop. The most useful thing is that the visits or revisions that we program can be added directly to our calendar. That synchronization ‘agenda of the mascot-agenda of the owner’ is very comfortable to avoid that we forget an appointment or that it is stepped on with other issues.
If we are especially concerned about the feeding of our dog, because we want you to enjoy good health, do not get too fat or simply have to follow more or less strict routines for any medical issue, we would appreciate an application as complete as iKibble Free. Thanks to it we can keep a diary of their meals , consult different ways of preparation or discover what foods can do them well or which, on the contrary, will be harmful.
There is a long list of foods and next to each one a star to mark it as a favorite , as well as the option of writing a note that reminds us, for example, how often it is eaten or if the last time it felt bad. The categories with very complete. Only in the dairy section can we find up to 37 different foods. And also, showing its order and simplicity, iKibble Free allows you to classify foods into five main types: healthy, good, OK, unhealthy and toxic.
Surely on more than one occasion to organize your vacation you have a big question: “Will pets be allowed in the hotel / hostel / apartment?” Some lodgings inform about it, but others are not as clear as we would like. Not to mention other establishments, such as bars, restaurants, shops and hairdressers, or public places, such as parks and beaches. Well thanks to Pets Welcome many of these questions will be resolved.
Just indicate our location and perform the corresponding search. This way we will avoid disappointments and setbacks and we will be able to enjoy vacations or small moments of leisure in the company of our most loyal friends. In the case of us who run an establishment, we can register in the application and specify if pets are welcome.
Because dogs are also entitled to enjoy the benefits of their own ‘WhatsApp’, although this case we are the owners who facilitate the task. With Doggy Talky we can create a social profile of our pet , adding interesting data, such as their breed, sex, age, name and, of course, a photograph. If we allow the app to access our location, it will automatically show us other dogs with which to be able to stay and the distance to which they are.
And why would dogs want to have their own WhatsApp? Well, the interests can be several: to make friends or take a walk with others who live in the same area. It is also possible to specify an adoption, in both directions. We can find users who have dogs in foster care while they are looking for a new home or be us what we put the corresponding announcement. And who knows, maybe while our pets spend an entertaining time we can also start a friendship (or whatever comes up) with other animal lovers.
Keep all the information related to your pet handy with Pet Master Pro and MascotasOnline. If you want to find out what animals are allowed in the next hotel where you will stay or find a public place to walk with your dog, Mascotas Bienvenidas will take you out of doubt. To keep your animal’s diet up to date and prevent it from eating something it should not, iKibble Free offers a long list of products to flag as favorites or noxious, among other things. And nothing better than Doggy Talky to get our dogs socialize with other neighbors and have a great time playing.
At the end of 2015, I spent a few evenings, and a few weekends too, thinking about the computerization of my wife’s future office which opened in early 2016. Here is my experience feedback, first episode.
First of all, one important thing to remember is that one of the software currently referring to gynecologists for obstetricians from midatlanticobgyn.com is of a somewhat specific type: it is nothing more than a web server provided under The shape of a Mac mini that is stored in a closet cabinet. It is connected to the local network on one side and to the internet on the other. The user accesses the software via a simple browser. This is Chrome (beurk! Google did not need that!) Which is imposed here probably more for the sake of simplicity of support by the editor than for real technical incompatibilities with other browsers.
Since this software has been chosen, The result is a series of cascading consequences that allow rather atypical and interesting choices.
First, there is the question of the 2 client workstations of the installation, that is to say the computer doctor and the computer secretary. What are the needs?
– launch the Chrome browser to use the business software
– create electronic forms of care (FSE)
– use a basic office suite for small ancillary works.
Nothing exceptional, nothing that requires muscular configurations. Nothing that is impossible either (after investigation) on any of the 3 large possible OS: Windows, OS X or Linux.
The pros and cons of each of the possible choices is known. caricature, We are retaining Windows and its viruses, Apple is the increasingly exorbitant cost of its hardware for configurations more and more low-end, Linux and its risk of hardware incompatibility.
At the end of a brief “for and against” in front of each OS name, the observation is without appeal: Linux wins the part for its zero cost, its low material needs, its excellent stability. It also adds the absence of viruses, the absence of surprise and the possibility of a vast choice to rebound if problem there really had to be. A priori, with Linux, we will not support the obsolescence programmed on the hardware that an Apple or a Microsoft will tend to weigh sooner or later on the hardware configuration chosen.
The defined software strategy, We go to the material itself. Apple excluded from the game, the choice is bloated. The goal is not to make the total discount to not pay the high price later, we stayed in big names: Intel for its NUC, Dell for its screens, Microsoft for its simple mice and keyboards, No frills (finding a quality wired mouse now needs to get up early …). It is likely that we have even typed a bit strong with the NUC config: this is Core I3 latest generation of the time (NUC5i3RYK) in which we added 8GB of RAM and SSD of 128GB. Clearly, we do not really have time to see the machine turn on. Let’s also say, there is nothing to hear: it does not make a sound!
Finally, with regard to screens, Being not imposing, we stayed on a full 21 inch matte HD (Dell P2214H). The screen is sober, its foot adjustable, nothing wrong!
A word on the OS finally for this first article: when we said Linux, we said everything and said nothing. We chose the Linux Mint distribution for several reasons. First its GUI is not confusing for a regular user of Windows or Mac. The desktop paradigm is the same as in other OS. Then because Mint is based on Ubuntu, itself based on Debian. To make it short, let’s say it’s hard to make it more solid and more square than these bases.
The last word about the ESFs is probably the critical point of Linux choice. The publishers are not jostling on this platform. There is one, Pyxistem who does the job … but at what price. Obviously, technical support had not used Linux for many months. It took no less than 12 hours of tele-assistance to get a usable system. When the first 40 minutes, they were passed by the technician to try to run install.exe command line in the terminal (a .exe sign a file made for Windows). Once the license was sold, the commercial of Pyxistem never followed our mails before all these problems. In short, a system that ends up working, but communication below everything (if the boss reads us, he will have to think of paying a crisis communication course to his employees … in 2016 this kind of thing is Unacceptable for a company).

While the MySurvey Review poll echoed by ComputerWorld should not be interpreted as meaning that Apple has an 80% penetration in the business world, what it could come to say is that Apple and Mac OS X has a mental presence – and positive – 80% of those who decide to buy equipment for the company.
Of the study, the penetration that is found for Apple in the business world is between 8 and 10 percent, when long ago only had a penetration between one and two percent.
Among the most interesting quotes from the study, we find:
The main reason companies are using Apple hardware is to virtualize other operating systems, fundamentally Windows XP and Windows Vista. The percentage of business users virtualizing Windows on their Mac is around 30%, while the percentage of users using Bootcamp is slightly more than 20%.
8 out of 10 Mac business users rated Very Good or Excellent hardware quality.
The company’s information technology managers miss Mac OS X configuration management tools (I do not know if they do not know Apple Remote Desktop and NetBoot, or there are really better tools in Windows), as well as hardware options, but they indicate That the productivity tools of Mac OS X (Spotlight, iChat Theater) make up for it.
A quote from a respondent: Many of our Windows developers have switched to XP or Vista virtual machines on Macintosh computers to avoid the productivity loss issues they experienced from unreliability – viruses, spyware, interruptions to security updates – Windows XP on PCs.
And best of all, Apple is still focused on the consumer market, not on the enterprise.
One of the greatest pleasures of life is to give yourself a good shower of hot water – or, if it is in summer, fresh water. The levels of pleasure, however, increase even more if the aforementioned shower is accompanied by the reproduction of good music, so that you can sing naked, in “duet” mode with your favorite artists, the songs that you like.
I have to admit that, until recently, I put my iPhone in the bathroom and left reproducing the songs that I wanted. As an emergency solution is not bad at all – although compromising the integrity of the phone – but then discovered an infinitely better alternative: shower speakers, completely waterproof , more powerful than those integrated into the phone itself and … you can put them Right next to you and control the reproduction and volume as you like during the shower itself!
Lately these loudspeakers are proliferating, so it can be difficult to choose the most appropriate. That’s why, on iPhoneA2, we have decided to carefully scrutinize the market in search of the best options. In our search we found some very interesting alternatives of different types, and we have left with these 7: the best waterproof shower speakers to use with iPhone, iPad, Mac or other mobile phones, tablets or computers that have Bluetooth connectivity . Let’s see them!
Shower speaker with fantastic value for money | TaoTronics SK03
This waterproof shower speaker from TaoTronics is the ideal solution if you want to spend little money and do not mind doing without frills. And we are talking about a simple model, but very efficient: you pair it with your iPhone – or with the device you want – via Bluetooth in a really simple way, you play and … enjoy the music!
Of course, the speaker will withstand splash water without problems – IPX4 certification – and comes with a strong suction cup that will allow you to place it next to the hand shower to the height that you want. As for the sound quality it provides, this, without being overwhelming, is more than correct to give you a pleasant shower experience.
Its autonomy, on the other hand, is not bad at all: it takes about 5 hours of continuous audio playback , so with a 15-minute daily shower, the speaker will work for almost 3 weeks without having to go through the plug. The load, by the way, is done by the microUSB port that comes built-in, and takes about 2 and a half hours to pass from 0% to 100%.
Finally, the speaker also incorporates an integrated microphone , so if someone calls you while you’re shining in the shower and want to pick up the call, you can do it and have a conversation with whoever calls you. And all this for a price that does not even reach 20 € . Not bad, right? You can see more in this shower speaker – and, if you want, buy it – by clicking on this link .
LCD shower head with built-in radio | VicTsing
With this model of VicTsing we are already not only with an excellent shower speaker , but also with several extra features that place it a step above the TaoTronics model in terms of functionality. A few weeks ago, in fact, we had the opportunity to analyze it in depth – you can find our review on this link – and we were really satisfied with it.
The first thing that catches the speaker’s attention is the integrated LCD screen , which will give you data such as music volume, battery charge level, etc. But, the older, this model incorporates FM radio , so with it you can also listen to your favorite stations without needing to have it paired with an iPhone or any other device.
Add to that the built-in microphone – thanks to which you can also use the speakerphone as Bluetooth hands-free -, the mandatory water resistance – IPX4 certification -, the strong suction cup included, the outstanding sound quality it provides and the fabulous autonomy of Which boasts – up to 8 hours of continuous audio playback – the result is blunt: this is one of the most interesting shower speakers on the market.
You have it available in two different colors – black and sky blue, and its price is more than 30 € . You can see more in depth – and buy it – through this link .
Shower loudspeaker with colored LED lights and built-in FM radio | Dland F013
If you feel like giving a touch of color to your showers or toilets -then, of course, the musical touch- then you’re sure to love this waterproof Bluetooth speaker from Dland. And we are talking about a model that incorporates a fun panel of colored LEDs that move to the rhythm of music.
Apart from the detail of the LEDs – there will be who loves it and whoever leaves it indifferent -, the speaker has several points in which it performs very well: its certification of resistance is IP67 , reason why, as far as water is concerned , Not only withstands splashing, but can also be immersed without damage . In the event, for example, that you are in a pool and that you fall into the speaker, it should survive the incident without problems.
But, in addition, the aforementioned certification ensures that the speaker is dust-resistant , and also stoically stops many more knocks and falls than other models can resist, so as well as serving as a musical company in the shower and / Or bathtub, you can turn it into your Bluetooth speaker for other uses, like going to the beach or giving you the opportunity to hear your favorite songs while you’re in the pool.
The sound quality it provides, on the other hand, is not bad at all – obviously, of the standards of these small speakers – and, like the VicTsing model we were talking about a few lines up, Dland’s speaker Incorporates FM radio , while its autonomy reaches 6 hours of continuous audio playback .
Waterproof “mini” Bluetooth speaker for shower and other uses | AmazonBasics nano
This proposal of AmazonBasics is the most portable of all that we propose: it is a Bluetooth speaker very, but very small , designed to take you anywhere with the greatest comfort possible, and also, for Of course, so you can enjoy your favorite music in the shower or while you take a bath, as it is a splash resistant model .

s we all know, Apple represents more than just a technology company (or mobile devices) to many people. From its beginnings it tried to carry a message of revolution and alternative thought to the masses, approaching the people and changing the way in which they thought about the computation. While some are reluctant to philosophy maquera and prefer to just enjoy their products, others carry the love of block away. These are 3 movie2kmovies (mostly documentaries) that I thought of sharing so that they can know a little more of the history of Apple and what it represents in their fans (called Macheads or simply fanboys ), and why not, have some fun.
This documentary focuses on Apple fans , and discusses how the evolution of the company’s history influenced the people who followed it from the beginning, through stages of heyday and odyssey. Interesting to know what people can do by following an idea, and especially how far they are willing to go as they realize that they are finally just one more consumer.
Welcome to Macintosh (2008)
The focus of this documentary is on showing the Apple world to people who do not yet know it, or are in their first steps, explaining the phenomenon that represents for both industry and people. The film treats very well the spirit of Macintosh , mixing history with criticism, and famous personalities like the well-known evangelist of Mac Guy Kawasaki , and the co-founder of Apple Ron Wayne .
Pirates of Silicon Valley (1999)
A classic that is more than 10 years old, and is based on the book Fire in the Valley: The Making of The Personal Computer to tell the story of the origins of the personal computer and the rivalry between Apple and Microsoft . A film with a cast of well-known actors who personify to the very Steve Jobs and Bill Gates in his youth, among other important personages. Perhaps the best option if they prefer a film plot to a documentary.

When a multimedia presentation is organized in a digital cinema room, it often happens that animators want to project their slides or videos from their own computer and that this computer is not a PC (running Windows) but a MAC (Apple branded computer operating under a Unix operating system).
Or the interfaces video output that equip the MAC are different from the PC. There are of course adapters that connect them to a projector or a flat screen (with classic interfaces of type PC) but Apple has evolved them with each launch of a new generation of MAC. In addition, these adapters are often not sold with the machine: it is up to the buyer to invest in these complementary connectors. So there is every chance that the animators of a Mac multimedia presentation will arrive in the movies without an adapter, either because they forgot it or because they simply will not have bought it. To avoid unpleasant surprises, it seems more prudent to have different types of adapters in the cabin: their price of these adapters is quite low (usually less than 10 €). Visit www.heimkinoleinwandtest.de/heimkino-beamer-test/ for more details.
It is important to choose the adapter to use as the resolution output (and therefore the image quality level) depends on it. The outputs available on MAC
It replaces or supplements the standard VGA output and allows to carry a composite signal (minimum quality), S-video and VGA thanks to a dedicated adapter:
Mini VGA / VGA Adapter
Like its standard VGA counterpart, the mini-VGA carries an analog signal limited to a standard definition (no HD via this adapter).
The mini-DVI is present on Apple’s latest generation computers. It replaces the mini-VGA and stands out for better performance. Indeed, it is able to support a resolution of 1900 X 1200 pixels at a rate of 60 frames per second.
Mini DVI / DVI Adapter
Depending on the type of adapter available, the projectionist can connect with a mini-DVI / VGA or mini-DVI / DVI adapter. The picture quality will be better with the second option since the signal will remain in digital and in HD.
This output was only used for a short time. Its main interest lies in the smallness of the interface which makes it easy to host it on extremely fine MAC models. As for the mini-DVI, there are micro-DVI / VGA and micro-DVI / DVI adapters. Mini DisplayPort or MDP
The mini DisplayPort is a connectivity present on the latest generation MAC. Little popular with the general public, it has hardly democratized itself outside the ranks of users of Apple products. It replaces the DVI or HDMI that equips many high-end PCs.
Mini DisplayPort output only available on MAC
Compared to traditional DVI, the Mini DisplayPort is not only capable of carrying an HD digital signal but additionally carries the sound. The Mini DisplayPort also performs better than standard HDMI since it manages resolutions greater than 2 K (up to 2560 X 1600 pixels).
There are several adapters to connect to the cinema projector or scaler: Mini DisplayPort / VGA, MDP / DVI or MDP / HDMI. The last two options are qualitatively the best.
Once the hardware is connected, the operator can access the settings of the MAC’s video output in the Finder (the desktop equivalent on PC). To do this, he clicks on the Apple logo at the top left of the screen and chooses the “System Preferences” function:
In the menu that opens, the “Monitor” function allows access to the configuration of the output resolution and the refresh rate of the images:
This entry rate as mandatory . Just as I like to convey the good feelings of the products I have tried, I find it my duty to warn (under my subjective point of view and personal conditions) what has been a disappointment. These types of entries are common in beauty blogs, and although I do not like to read them much, I leave none in the ink. I read them all. For caution. And thank you enormously.
As far as “bad experiences” are concerned, they are a bit more objective. After all, it is a question of verifying if the conditions of your contract have been diligently fulfilled. Or if they have totally broken, and hence, dissatisfaction.
I will be brief, I do not like to dwell on the negative, especially when it comes to beauty. So here we go.
5% Glycolic Acid Cream, from Reviva Labs.
Cream of glycolic acid with concentration of 5%, very well valued, both in the reviews of Iherb and in external forums. I bought it looking to improve the look of my skin after the summer. Specifically, I wanted to reduce the appearance of my pores and start a smooth chemical exfoliation. Because usually the brand has products that I love (like your TONIC or eye contour wheat germ), not achacaré the product itself. I achacaré to my skin does not tolerate glycolic acid, even in small concentrations . With this cream he did not notice the famous itch that announces, only noticed the skin more disrepair, and the pore, huge! As if instead of bringing health I would have been shredding the care-based job I had spent so much time doing.
Now, if you have already proven that glycolic acid suits you, it can be a stupefying option, both for the quality of its ingredients and for its price, which is around 10 euros.
BLACK HEAD mask by Pilaten.
The last time I let myself be carried away by the promises of eternal youth and beauty of deep Asia. I recognize it, the perfect skins that look their people, and the fame of their treatments have managed to dazzle me more than once and take me to make purchases that I have later regretted.
This mask promised to eliminate blackheads effectively. And he had seen videos on Youtube who claimed their benefits eradicants impurities. And I trusted. Nothing is further from reality. This pilaten mask – which looks more like Texas oil than the mask and can be removed – leaves my face reddened, the pores tormented and equally dirty. I imagine that in sensitive skins it will wreak havoc. It is Attila’s horse.
Nor do I like that he can not decipher his ingredients, even though he had heard that it was made of charcoal. Namely. But I do not repeat.
Face Cleansing Strips, by nu-Pore.
These are the typical strips anti-blackheads (which are sweltered, glued, dried and removed) that can be found in any supermarket, perfumery or drugstore. These specifically come from the Iherb samples section. To be fair, it has not really been a disappointment. Well, no more disappointment than other previous strips of similar nature. This type of product has never done in me effect. It does not matter the brand. Perhaps it is that I wait too long, and I expect to see tons of facial impurity when I remove it. The fact is that I do not notice a difference when use and when not. So with its price I buy something rich and meriendo happy. Like the kids out of school.
Lipsticks: Sleek Peaches & Cream and Wet ‘n Wild Think Pink.
Two magnificent colors, two hopes truncated.
I searched and bought Peaches & Cream very thoroughly, in love with the color I saw over and over again on the internet. I thought I was going to find the perfect peach for my lips, which, along with a pink rouge, turned my pale face into an ode to innocence. But it was not, the tone is beautiful yes, but …. The texture is hateful! I will not call it creamy, but slippery. It is impossible for me to settle on my lips, to apply it in a fairly uniform manner. Impossible. It does not matter if your lips are freshly exfoliated or full of hides. I still like a nightmare of Twin Peaks .
Think Pink is not that big of a deal. Applied with much mime can get to cover the lip and settle, leaving a mouth of Barbie. But it requires a lot of time and lips in perfect condition. What is a nuisance and does not facilitate the task. It lasts less than others on the same line, and tends to mark more wrinkles on the lips. In his defense, I will say that in summer I see it more beautiful. Another thing that I dislike, but that shares with its companions of series, is that criminal cover that has. Unstable, fragile, falls everywhere, staining bags and needles. Those lipstick tops are another nightmare to me. But that’s another story.
Since they are beautiful colors, I try to use them as coleretes in cream, but they disappear in a sigh.
EVERYDAY MINERALS mineral foundation.
Before hurling against this product, I will say that it is a great product. It is a great powdered mineral base, with high quality, imperishable and varied and precious tones. But to me the mineral makeup gets into my pores, marking them as if there was no tomorrow. A horror. I am scarce with the mineral makeup, which despite its great virtues, is not for my skin. However, I do not have it all dead with laughter. I use it as a bronzer on the front, eyelids and jaws. Up above the nasal septum and beautiful fall. I have also added some bb cream to make it shine. After all it is a base that promises matte finish. Although I would say it is velvety.
Brush Tangle Teezer Salon Elite.
Another miracle that did not turn out to be such. The boom of these brushes was very large and inflated my hopes. My hair is quite long, and my efforts not to mistreat her , I thought I put a Tangle Teezer in my life would be a good idea. And it was bad, both for its price and for its uselessness. I find it really uncomfortable to use, and every two to three, it flies off and stamped itself against the ground while I’m using it, making a nasty noise, of course. And that gives me a rage …
On the other hand, it hooks on the hair just like another brush and gives pulls. Of course, to distribute evenly masks is great. And to give anti-cellulite massages on the thighs as well. Or to tickle you. All to feel that you have not lost the money.
When it comes to keeping the screen of your Mac as the first day, the first thing to do is stop and think what is the Mac you have and where the most critical points are the same . Most of the time these points are concentrated in the equipment screen and in the possible slots through which dirt and liquids could enter.
Today I intend to share with you how I personally have cleaned the screens of my Mac computers , both laptops and desktops since I joined this great family of the fanboys of Apple’s best service.
If there is one thing that is total sacrilege is to have a computer of the most famous brand on the market, with a breaker design and have it dirty and poorly maintained. I am one of those who thinks that when something is bought, if you really hurt the money you spend, take care of it as if it were part of you. I know that you do not have to reach such extremes, but in my case, that it is not easy to have these equipment, I prefer to take care of them and much.
As I have said, the most critical point is the maintenance of the screen. We must differentiate if we have a screen that is protected with an additional glass front panel itself or not . In the case of MacBook Pro that are already disappearing, they have the screen behind a glass, just like with the screens of the iMac. However, the MacBook Air, have the screen exposed without any protection.
In both cases my cleaning procedure is the same , but in the case of delicate screens of the MacBook Air, you must be very careful and not over tighten because you could damage it .
Take a microfiber cloth and moist it a little with window cleaners that have no rare components. The transparent ones better.
Once the cloth is moistened, proceed to gently wipe from side to side of the screen to remove dust and dirt.
After removing dirt and dust particles, you will see that the screen is slightly damp. Now fold the rag and by the clean part you begin to make circular movements along the length and width of the same, guaranteeing that it remains totally shiny and without footprints.
Once the screen is cleaned, dampen the rag again and review all the keys on the keyboard and the body of the computer.
It seems silly the process, but I have friends who have asked me how I manage to have my equipment so shiny. The secret is, take care of them as if it were you.

The readers of e-books have been becoming gradually a gap between our homes. It’s not uncommon to see users of all ages quietly reading in public transport or in the park with their eReaders. Have the model you have, if you want to fill your eBook reader, nothing beats Calibre .
Development of completely free and translated into Spanish , this application will allow us to organize, convert, transfer and even create electronic books.Compatible with OS X, PC-Windows and GNU / Linux; Calibre is packed with features, sometimes quite unknown, to make the experience of reading on eReader something much simpler. We show you step by step the possibilities of this application and how to exploit them .
Once you have downloaded and installed Calibre, first we will surprise his terse design .You do not expect a neat style and stylized style native application software in OS X Yosemite or Windows 10 for example. But do not panic, your poor design does not have to be an impediment to discover all the features of the application.
The first task will be to add books to our library, which you previously set to the desired location (although later discover all its possibilities). Although there are seven different varieties of imported books to the library, we will focus on the most important.
Add books from a single directory: simply pressing the button “Add Books , ” we will automatically open a search box where you can navigate between different folders on your computer to find the book or books you want to add to the library.
Add books from a file: in this case, we can access it in two ways, the first as in the previous case by directly touching the button “Add books” or by clicking on the down arrow of the same button and then on the tab “Add several books from a file”. We will have two options depending on how we have distributed books in the archive, but the most common is to select a book for each directory in the file.
The latter is an option to consider if a friend has passed us his library of e-books compressed in RAR or ZIP and want to include it in ours without having to go one on one decompressing.
One of the great features of Calibre and not everyone gets to use is the ability to automatically download the web countless e – books. So if we have the book file will not have to go Google looking for him, the application will do this work for us andautomatically included in the library. Of course, all the books that the application willsearch to be free from any kind of DRM (ie, free or public domain). If payment books, Calibre will make a selection among the major shops e-books in the world to give thelowest price.
CALIBRE WILL NOT ALLOW YOU TO DOWNLOAD THOSE BOOKS THAT VIOLATE COPYRIGHT
To access this feature so we’ll just go to the button “Get Books” , which will access a copyright notice and payment policy. Leaving behind this notice, a new window will open where you can select the libraries where we want to search for e-books and the different search boxes to filter books by title, author or different keywords.
All payment transactions books will be held outside the application, introducing us to the respective websites of publishers or stores e-books. Once you have purchased and downloaded the book, so we’ll just follow the steps above to add the book to the library Calibre.
Create and manage libraries
To enjoy the experience of reading before we should have all our eBooks computer. It may seem absurd , but when offers on dozens of books the fact of having to rummage through the library to modify metadata or export them to a device is somewhat tedious.Calibre provides two ways to distribute our books without switching applications.
Create a new library: in this case we will create a new library from scratch to organize our electronic books. To do this we must go to “Library CALIBRE” button on the top toolbar and press. A new window will open where we can select the folder location where e-books that we include in our portfolio are stored. Then we leave marked the option “Create an empty library at the new location” and will press to accept.
As you see, this option also allows us to move our library to another location. It is important to note that in case you want to transfer all our e-books to a folder on an online storage service type OneDrive or just an external storage device, it is advisable to use this option and no copy / paste the folder manually as it can generate some reading errors, data loss and data append.
Create a new virtual library: an option that not many people know but it is extremely useful is the creation of virtual libraries. Unlike traditional libraries Calibre, these will be created within our library serving of intelligent filters to search among our books. Undoubtedly a necessary tool when we manage dozens of books. To create them we will have to click on the “Virtual Library” button next to the search box interface. Then a window where we will indicate the name of the library and intelligent filtering tag appears.
With regard to this last point, the virtual libraries are fully automatic including within them only those e – books whose metadata match those we have selected. For example, in this case to order all the books of the James Bond saga in a single virtual library.
Modifying metadata: keep everything in order
If there is one thing completely vertebra Calibre is the order: an application created by and for ordering your library e-books. And metadata, this would be completely impossible. As ye shall have been able to imagine, speaking of metadata we mean all those data inserted in each book and help us to both identification and for cataloging.
WE CAN ALSO AUTOMATICALLY GENERATE COVERS SHOULD BE NO AVAILABLE
Depending on the source from which we have downloaded the e-books, it is normal that the metadata 100% completed correctly located. Otherwise or simply because we want to add new data, just we have to select the book you want from our library and click the “Edit Metadata” button. A window will appear with all the information of the electronic book selected, from the author to the book’s description will appear in our reader.
As a recommendation, should be sagas, you should manually change the “number” as well we know the exact order of each book and so appear in our reader e-books (if this is compatible). If you want to modify the metadata of several or all books automatically, so we’ll just click on the button “Edit metadata mass” at the bottom arrow button above. In this case the window that opens will be different as insert metadata already registered for the selected books. We can also find and replace data that we want tosearch in question.
Downloading metadata and covers
What happens when a book does not have all the information as metadata but we do not want to complete it manually? For example, we do not know the year of publication, the correct order if it is part of a saga we are too lazy or just look on the net. For this Calibre allow us to automate this task .
Download the cover: if the rest of metadata are complete and we want to just download a cover for the book (because the self – generated by the application seems very dodgy), we will go to the individual vision metadata explained above and click on the “Download cover” button. Next Calibre libraries will search Amazon and Google to see the covers of this book in particular, can select the one that best suits our tastes.
Download metadata: time is money and if you do not want to have to go through them manually including metadata of each book Calibre will do this job for us. If we complete all metadata of all library books have to select them all (keyboard shortcut Ctrl + A or Cmd + A) and then press the “Download all metadata” located at the bottom arrow on the button ” modify metadata. ” It will also work with the Ctrl + D or Cmd + D shortcut depending on whether we’re on Mac or Windows PC.
The next window will tell us if we want to download the metadata, the cover of books or both. It is important before you continue to click on “Set download” and observe the information we will download. May not interest us touch the information about the author and the publisher, just looking for that on the series to which it belongs, year of publication and description of the book for example. Also we can choose which databases Calibre seek this information to complete the metadata.
Transferring to a reader e-books
Although Calibre supports virtually all readers of electronic books, you may not have the luck that our reader is compatible with the application so the tedious task of transferring books will have to be set manually. But still, it is not something that takes along time.
Unsupported device: in the above case where the reader is not supported by Calibre, we will automatically choose the folder where you want the e-books are deposited. To do this we must go to the button “Connect and share” to choose the option “Connect to a folder” . So downloading the application automatically go in the default folder books you’ve specified. This same feature supports micro-SD that we insert in readers compatible with external storage cards electronic books.
I supported device: when the device if supported by Calibre, so we’ll just connect itto your computer with the corresponding cable. Then a new button appears on the toolbar with the name “Device” that will tell us the catalog of e-books containing the media in question and the information they provide us with their metadata and the ability to include new electronic books dragging or by clicking the add button.
Transferring to an Amazon Kindle
Regarding the Amazon Kindle, the system is virtually the same as a reader e-books supported by Calibre, because if just connect it via USB can see the catalog of books in its interior to delete or introduce new Titles. But thanks to the technology of these devices we can do much more, such as sending wirelessly through new email e-books, and every time our Kindle connects to a Wi-Fi will go down the same no need to include any cables .
In this case we have to make some presets in the application settings. Pressing Ctrl + P (Cmd + P on Mac) or tool bar will access preferences, where we will have to click on the button “Share books by email” .

Then in Applesencia the best apps on como aprender ingles com facilidade from our iPhone, iPad or iPod touch with applications like Babbel, uSpeak, Voxy, Duolingo or English daily.
Every Tuesday we bring you the most interesting applications for IOS on a particular topic a series of articles that we hope will prove useful for everyone. They try to see and analyze a number of distributed applications related topics.
The goal is to help each user to decide which application best fits your needs to perform a particular task. And the huge number of applications that we find in the App Store often poses problems when choosing one or the other, even more when these are extra and if once purchased does not satisfy us, we have the possibility of return.
This week we will focus on basic apliaciones for any iPhone specifically with the most interesting applications when learning English . Again, an ambitious collection we want you as a guide to deciding your preferred application to get fit.
We started with an application that appeals to me primarily for two things, its interface and learning mode.In Duolingo not only have a perfect, friendly and beautiful interface, but the process of learning English is perfect . We’ll have to unlock games and levels to achieve. Each level talks about a different theme every level learn new words and memorize new vocabulary in English. It is free, so do not expect more and give it a try.
Bebbel is a app to learn English that stands out for its functionality and effectiveness. Not only learn new vocabulary we -Vocabulary and variadas- organized by different themes, but we can review what waslearned thanks to a perfect system of review. Also it allows us to delve into an issue or practice to memorize the words perfectly. Another free application that will help us improve our English considerably.
Everyday English is an application other somewhat different because it is an audio application. By this I mean you learn not words themselves, but conversations and expressions in English, listening to the pronunciation from our iDevice . The application is free, but to get all the expressions we buy the full version.
One of the most popular applications in this category is Voxy, and like the previous one , the learning mode is somewhat different. In Voxy we read articles and news in English, after which we will be asked toanswer questions and translate vocabulary to see if we have understood. In addition to learning with phrases and daily news, we can also review what was learned through a section of practice, a translator and tools.
Just this compilation with uSpeak, an application through game levels learn English and new vocabulary.The application stands out for its interface and the learning process. In uSpeak we will gain points as weanswer questions and we must do it in the shortest possible time. Note that if we do not understand a word we hear. A very interesting game to help improve our English.
As they say, are not all that are or are all that are , but if we tried to make a selection of the most significant, hoping to serve as aid and awaiting return next week .
The problem with programs that try to quantify 3 week diet review is the small number of foods that have and limitation on how to cook them . Caloriessolves in part this being a program with a database of 6900 foods , something quite considerable and we can find almost all foods daily.
What has llamdo me about this program is that it is very visual. By introducing the different intakes: breakfast, lunch, dinner and “snacks” We can go see in each bar -like colors the amounts of carbohydrates, fats and proteins that have consumed.
This visual information we can see both for each meal as if for a day, week or month . Thus at the end of a day we can analyze whether we have eaten too much fat or if we have not reached the recommended protein intake. I recommend that these analyzes are made weekly or monthly basis, because what we lack in one day we can meet the next and vice versa. Recall that the recommendations for good sportsmanship are: 65% carbohydrates, 20% fat and 15% protein.
If you acquire the program do not be obsesionéis to find food as such, makesubstitutions . If for example you do not find a potato mash or put the potatoes if you do not find your soup put similar because in the end result if we analyze long -term data do not vary much.
Calories solomente is made to run on Mac , something against it because it loses many users to not launch on Windows or Linux versions. It is in English I do not think it inconvenient, food is easy to find. And one point is to export data to CSV , if we want to handle the data then by other means.
The program is shareware and can toquetearlo to see if we like. Getting the license costs $ 19 , a fairly reasonable price for the large database that provides and how easy it is handled by the interface to set the menu.
On the official website you can check out the screencast to see how they spend this program. As you see it is quite resultón, as often happens in the Mac world.
If in addition to an iPhone using an iPad, or Mac Watch maybe you should start using apps that integrate seamlessly into the Apple ecosystem.
Both Apple , and its products, you can get many drawbacks. But there issomething that can not be denied: they have the best ecosystem compare him with the platform that compares. From Cupertino they have understood very well that it is making phones, tablets and computers not alone. Of course everyone can work very well separately, but if you add (if connected together perfectly and form an ecosystem) makes the result has added value. The best example is the Apple Watch , thanks to its seamless integration with the iPhone is able to get to where other accessories such as the Pebble. And the same happens between the clock and the iPhone also occurs with the iPad , Mac and even the Apple TV, which are today all the pieces that form the Apple ecosystem.
From Cupertino have understood very well that not only is making phones, tablets and computers
And living in an ecosystem has its advantages. Wherever you go you have all your data, whether contacts, tasks or files.And as each device is designed following the same pattern, all work in a similar way that makes everyday life much easier. Do not have to learn 5 ways to do one thingThis ecosystem also favors the creation of shared technologies further comprising each device each . We talked about the case of AirPlay (for watching videos on a second screen), AirPrint (for printing without cables), AirDrop (to send device files device by WiFi or Bluetooth), Touch ID and even iCloud that serves as the hub of communications cloud for almost all data.
Of course, the ecosystem not only provides benefits to users but also to companies that create them , since it is the best way of fidelity to your users.This is not only applicable to Apple and its hardware, applications and services, if not through the App Store can also take advantage of the ecosystem anyone who believes an application . If it is true that every year the requirements to be fully integrated into the ecosystem grow (only this year have added two new platforms and a handful of new APIs to adopt), but those who meet have a great advantage over the rest . Not only have “favor” of Apple (which promotes in its stores to include new features such as 3D Touch or iPad multitasking), but caring for their users.
Hence, if you want to maximize the advantages of having an iPhone, iPad, Watch, Mac or Apple tv we recommend that you try one of these apps that not only integrate if not that give meaning to the Apple ecosystem:
1password ( iPhone, iPad, Watch and Mac ): This is the password manager par excellence. It is not only the safest, but it is always the first ones you integrate the latest developments: from iCloud sync to iOS multitasking 9, to Touch ID.
MindNode ( iPhone, Watch, iPad and Mac ): Today is one of the apps to create more complete (and easy to use) mental maps we can find in the App Store. Use iCloud to synchronize and even has a version for the Apple Watch where we can see our documents.
Things ( iPhone, Watch , iPad and Mac ): Now that we have improved the pace of development has improved, Things is one of the managers best positioned tasks market: it has a native app for watchOS 2 widget Notification Center and even an extension to capture new tasks from other apps.
OmniFocus ( iPhone, Watch, iPad and Mac ): Like Things, OmniFocus is the first task managers to add all the news ecosystem: multitasking, widgets, Apple Watch … The safest thing is that even already have list your app for iPad Pro.
MoneyWiz ( iPhone, Watch, iPad and Mac ): If we seek to keep track of our personal accounts this is our app. Moreover, as available on multiple devices it makes managing our money is easy: add expenses from the clock to check the data on the iPad.
Fantastical ( iPhone, Watch , iPad and Mac ): Thanks to its design and natural language Fantastical has changed the way many use the calendar.It integrates with iCloud, has a widget, an extension and the Apple Watch works natively in addition to having a complication for the sphere.
Day One ( iPhone, Watch, iPad and Mac ): Since his arrival in 2011 has become the reference app for those who still write in a journal. Its integration with the ecosystem is such that it is able to add our activity, position, temperature and even the music you’re listening to an input to give greater context.
Deliveries ( iPhone, Watch, iPad and Mac ): With it we can track our packages from all our devices. From the Notification Center widget to your wrist.
PCALC ( iPhone, Watch, iPad and Mac ): The scientific calculator for excellence in IOS and Mac has recently launched its version for the Watch and is even expected in the Apple TV..
Pixelmator ( iPhone, iPad and Mac ): Unlike Photoshop Pixelmator is one of the graphic editors who can say they are part of the ecosystem: it integrates with iCloud, uses the latest processing technologies and iOS has up to an extension to edit images.
Paprika ( iPhone , iPad and Mac ): The app is responsible for saving our recipes and help us develop a shopping list as we go to cook. Although his version is the iPad, the iPhone and Mac are not far behind.
Tweetbot ( iPhone, iPad and Mac ): ? What about Tweetbot that was not said with its latest update can even respond to notices from the Apple Watch.
Reeder ( iPhone, iPad and Mac ): If you’re still news RSS Reeder is the best choice. It is compatible with most services and is available in all places where you want to read.
Djay ( iPhone, Watch, iPad and Mac ): It is not only one of the most complete today for mixing applications, but it can say with confidence that none of its versions is a “toy”, not even the Apple Watch .
Next ( iPhone, Watch , iPad and Mac ): Focused on cost control and Cloud bookkeeping services, Next has been one of the apps that has better understood the concept of ecosystem and has adapted perfectly to each device .
Byword ( iPhone, iPad and Mac ): If ours is minimalist writing apps like iA Writer us fall short this is our app. It maintains the same idea but has added as interesting as the ability to publish to WordPress, Blogger or Tumblr.
iA Writer ( iPhone, iPad and Mac ): If all you are looking for when writing is a blank page and want to leave out all distractions this is your app.
Clear ( iPhone, Watch, iPad and Mac ): If Things or OmniFocus is you are “big” and do not like the way it works is clear reminders app to manage your tasks. ICloud synchronization features, design and sounds really worked and is even has a widget for the notification center.
And you, what apps that integrate seamlessly into the ecosystem you do you use?
So far we often heard news of new businesses that start to support Apple Pay in the United States when making any purchase. However, an extremely interesting option would be to pay at vending machines or self – service . The typical coffee in the break from work, the coke on a hot summer day or the parking ticket without chump fill pockets.
USA Technologies announced today that about 200 thousand of these vending machines or self – service in the United States will support payment by Apple Pay . Such machines include some very good coffee makers, drinks and similar products, laundry, parking, newspaper kiosks, and even car washing machines.
Stephen P. Herbert, CEO of USA Technologies, said they are aware that a number of the millions of customers who use these machines daily would like to be able to pay with Apple Pay . Also, he thinks that using apple pay in such vending machines increase sales by making it easier for customers to pay for any product .
It has also ensured that USA Technologies has always sought to provide its customers comfort, safety and easy way to pay, now that it is becoming more common not wear loose cash.
USA Technologies is related to major brands like Starbucks, but also with smaller, so from today in the US will be much easier to find any vending machine that allows pay via Apple Pay. A very good news.
