New in Adobe Premiere Pro CC 2017

Podcast: EmbedSubscribe: Apple Podcasts | Android | RSSAl Mooney sat down with me at NAB 2017 to let me know all the cool new features that Premiere Pro contains. Lots of cool beta programs that you can start to use right away. Just like the Character Animator, which programs such as the Late Show with Stephen Colbert started using right away. This is part of an “Instant on” option: when something gets announced, you can start using it by updating the program. This is true for all Adobe Creative Cloud programs. As for Premiere Pro, it’s more than just editing. Color, audio, and motion graphics have been the main focus. For color, Adobe added a lumetri color panel. Audio also has a panel that gives you a essential sound panel – a visual screen to help clean up sound points. An auto-match loudness will normalize all sound clips. Easier...


HP Z27x DreamColor Monitor for 4K Video – NAB 2014

Podcast: EmbedSubscribe: Apple Podcasts | Android | RSSMovies such as Frozen, How to Train Your Dragon 2, Mr. Peabody and Sherman, and upcoming Shrek – the Final Chapter all have either used or will be using this technology to make the color pop and the movies shine. All because of a computer monitor. I met up with Dan Bennet this year at NAB 2014. Dan knows his stuff when it comes with high-quality HP computers – like the Z1 G2 – and also HP’s monitors in the HP DreamColor Z27x and Z24x. We focused mainly on the Z27x because of everything it had to offer. The HP DreamColor Z27x features a 4k input support screen, 10 bit color, and an integrated calibration engine to color correct the screen when needed. Dan showed me two calibration devices that could be used and could be calibrated to multiple color formats....

Zombie Cookies 0

Zombie Cookies

I don’t concern myself too much with browser cookies, because I’m pretty conservative in my browsing habits. I spend most of my browsing time at legitimate news sites and blogs–I don’t care if the Denver Post or Project Gutenberg leaves footprints behind on my browser and my hosts file blocks most of the sites that like to drop tracking cookies. Also, since I moved to Linux, I’ve drifted away from alt.comp.virus, where the discussion is not limited strictly to viruses, but may address to any form of possible security issues (maybe I’ll resubscribe). Consequently, I had not heard of “zombie cookies” until I saw this story on the BBC website; a privacy activist has filed a lawsuit against a number of websites, including Hulu and MySpace, for using a type of Flash-based cookie that can recreate itself after being deleted: . . . the lawsuit, brought about by...

The Hovercam lets you scan documents and Business Cards at CES 2010

Podcast: EmbedSubscribe: Apple Podcasts | Android | RSS If you get a lot of business cards, you might want to take a look at this. It’s a scanner that really is a camera which takes a picture at 600 dpi. Both the document scanner and the business card scanner fold down to be portable, but then you open them up and get your information scanned. The HoverCam is a full document and business card scanner. With their software, you can collect and organize the documents. Best part – the software is FREE. You don’t even need the scanner. Just download off their site. It works with Adobe AIR 2.0, so as long as you have a computer that can run AIR, you are good to go. Jeffrey Powers talks with Gene on the HoverCam and how it can turn all your documents into nothing. The business card scanner...

Gumblar Virus 0

Gumblar Virus

The Guardian reports that there’s a new kid in town, and he’s breaking windows via the Google. The story is here. A computer virus that targets Google users is mutating rapidly, turning it into what some are calling the biggest threat to online security today. The worm, known as Gumblar, attacks computers through vulnerabilities in some version of Adobe’s PDF reader and Flash player software. Once it infects a victim’s PC, it silently redirects the user’s Google search results to sites that download more malware onto the machine or allow criminals to conduct “phishing” attacks to steal login details for banking, social networking and websites. The worm spreads from infected website. The story recommends the Unmask Parasites tool for scanning a site; I just scanned my own site and it came up clean.

Koobface Worm Invades Social Networking Sites

Judging by this description from McAfee, when Koobface infects a computer, it connects to the net and downloads additional malware. Here’s one item it attempts to download. The worm uses social engineering to spread. It sends users bogus messages posing as an invitation to watch a video and prompts the user to download malware disguised as an Adobe flash plugin.

MacWorld Should Slap Apple in the Face and Get A New Keynote Presenter

On Tuesday, Apple did what it said they were going to do for the last 2 years – pull out of MacWorld. Of course, Apple will attend this years’ event, but they really dropped the ball by stating Steve Jobs will not be doing the Keynote address. So now MacWorld is left with the senior vice president of Worldwide Product Marketing, Phillip Schiller. MacWorld Should Say to Apple “We’re Mad As Hell and we’re not going to take this anymore…”

What if Microsoft went Open Source?

Subscribe: Apple Podcasts | Android | RSS Subscribe: Apple Podcasts | Android | RSSOpen Source seems to be a growing movement. Not everything is part of the “GNU General Public License” though.  Some have even gone as far to make their own Public License standard. Microsoft does have some Open Source to them, but what would happen if they took their Operating System to that standard? Would people accept the Microsoft OS, or would they finally make the switch to Linux? Brought to you by CareerSaver.com – 25% off Training materials if you use code “Geek08”.

Do We Need Comcast to Cap Bandwidth Usage? 0

Do We Need Comcast to Cap Bandwidth Usage?

Subscribe: Apple Podcasts | Android | RSS Subscribe: Apple Podcasts | Android | RSSIt would be interesting to see how much bandwidth I go through a month. Uploading shows, ustream channel, downloading software updates and media content.  All of it legally. There are some that decide to use their internet connection without abandon. They download movies, music and computer programs without legally paying for it. I have seen many downloading 4 to 5 items at a time, which at gigabytes at a pop, it’s a lot of data that passes through. And with programs like bittorrent, not only does it download the items, but it turns your computer into a “Seed” in which others can use to pull from. Comcast is working on a model to cap bandwidth per month. For some it won’t be noticeable. For the internet Zealot, they might find it tougher to work and...
