Reseña Mouse Logitech G600 – Muchos botones, muchas funciones.

Ha pasado un tiempo desde la último post escrito en este blog pero es tiempo para que las vacaciones se acaben. Hoy traemos la reseña del Mouse G600 de Logitech, un mouse un tanto extraño por la cantidad de botones que tiene en el lateral y un directo competidor del Razer Naga. Tanto el G600 como el Razer Naga están diseñados con los jugadores de MMO en mente pero hay que poner un alto ahí, gracias a la versatilidad (hasta 8600 DPI creo, con 4 niveles de DPI totalmente ajustables a nuestro gusto) que ofrece la sensibilidad del mouse y la posibilidad de asignar cualquier función, tecla del teclado o comando de Windows, a los botones laterales, lo convierten en el Mouse perfecto para todo tipo de juegos.

iExplorer 3 Review: get more from your iDevice

The iDevices are great products, the iOS interface is fast and clean but it has some little things that are not so great. For example, you can’t connect an iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad and use it as a USB Drive, you can’t do anything more than charge it if it’s not from iTunes and sometimes is better just to be going and adding files and music from different computers without the syncing/deleting process.

This can be really annoying sometimes and there’s no reason of why your iDevice can’t do that. This is where iExplorer from Macroplant gets in. Is an amazing little App that can help you a lot, is simple, is nice, great looking and it gives you full access to your iDevice, let’s check the best features of this program.

Windows Magician Review: Mac just got easier for pro users

When you are using Logic Pro, Photoshop or any other big program with tons of windows to manage it can be a mess. As a user for Logic Pro studio I know what I’m saying. Loops window, mixer window, instruments window and many more at the same time. You can use Spaces to get everything in order, but there’s another way now.

It’s called windows magician, an application for Mac that let’s you choose the size and location of every window for every time you open it. For example, in Logic Pro I like to have my loops on the left side, with a medium size and in the bottom the mixer. Before windows magician I had to establish those windows every time I open it but that’s old story now.

FX Studio Pro Review: Simple Is Better

We have reviewed quite a few photography apps for Mac and iOS, and true is that Apple’s platform have a certain attraction with photos, videos and everything related with creativity and memories. There are some great apps that can turn a photo into vivid memory for a family, some of them are hard to use, complicated, dedicated to professionals, others are simple and have a small selection of options so the regular user can have a nice photo too.

FX Studio Pro from Macphun is the second kind of app: is simple, everybody can use it and it has a limited range of options. It is the Instagram for the Mac, has a lot of filters and frames and with a few clicks you can have a great photo. But there’s something that puts FX Studio Pro over a big part of his competitors: It’s not designed for children, it doesn’t look like a core photography photo app; with a few clicks you can have your great photo, the way you want, not the way the filters want.

iPad Mini release date confirmed & Microsoft Surface price revealed

This is a big week for the tablet market, two new competitors were announced, well one, as usually Apple sent the media invitations but they don’t say what is about but we are 90% sure that is going to be the new iPad mini or nano. Microsoft on the other hand has announced the Surface RT price and they are ready to be pre-ordered.

The price of the Surface is quite a big surprise, 499 USD (the same as an iPad) and being honest, I can’t find what justify that big price. The Surface is bigger than the iPad (10.6 vs 9.7 inches) but it lacks on some points as for example the connectivity  Wifi only, and the big weak point is the screen resolution, it is a 147 ppi screen (the iPad has 265 ppi) which is just lame. Microsoft has announced the dead of Surface when they announced those prices. You can’t compete with the iPad if you have less things to offer than the iPad and definitely, you can’t put a 499 price tag on it. The so announced Touch Cover is going to cost an extra 100 USD so the model with the touch cover or the type cover will cost 599 USD.a

The rumors about the iPad mini are very strong but we know very little about it. We think the iPad mini will be as same as technological level as the iPad 2 but a little bit smaller and cheap. We are betting on a 299 USD price tag for the basic 16 GB version but we don’t know that yet, next week we will have the Apple presentation and the summary of it.

The music industry is on the constant move is very money hungry. Because of this some people stopped calling it music, some “artist” are big clowns and most of the pop popular singers doesn’t actually know how to sing.They look good and they have a big marketing campaign.
