I have a BlinkStick Square. They have a large variety of products (including an enclosure for my Square that I just noticed). The Square has 8 LEDs and each are addressable individually. The Square comes pre-assembled. There are other products that provide you with the parts so that you can build it. The API supports a number of languages (including ...

Is not a printer Various paper sizes, including A4 and automatically recognizes the size of the paper. Duplex capable Windows and OS X drivers. Dimensions: 292 mm x 159 mm x 168 mm (11....

While the production year might not be relevant, new features introduced after a certain period might be required. Nordis already mentioned CPU efficiency, but if you dive down to components you will also see newer instruction which are only available on newer CPU, more modern firmwares (UEFI) ect. etc. All of which are not available on older hardware. ...

The main problem with pocket-size projectors is that they mostly rely on wireless connection rather than typical interfaces. What is more, low resolution can make subtitles unreadable. If we are talking about mini projectors, I can suggest ZeleSouris UC40. Pros: suit for home video playing relatively small (20.1 x 15.3 x 6.7 cm; 998 g) affordable price (~...

I don't own one of these, so I can't say how I feel about it, but it seems interesting. This is a laser keyboard which is said to be "fast and accurate". Pros Supports everything, from iOS, to Android, to Windows XP - 10, and Mac OSX Is said to be "accurate" on Amazon page.

I am assuming that you want to connect the Intel Compute Stick to something that you can view the output of the device, correct? First off, you cannot connect it into the HDMI port of your MacBook Pro. That's output only. That's like trying to connect the HDMI out port on a DVD player to the HDMI port on a game console - it's not going to work. What you ...

The RAM is probably the main change I would make to your proposed specs. Narrowing Down the Options If you're going to want an iMac, especially for video editing, you're going to need a fast hard-disk, enough RAM, and definitely a good GPU. This immediately narrows down the selection to a 27-in 5K iMac. Why? The 5K iMacs are the only ones offering discrete ...

First, see the megahertz myth - you can't compare processors from four years apart based solely on clock speed. Either machine would be great for iOS development. A couple things to note: I use a 2012 13" Pro as a daily driver. I put a Crucial MX300 SSD in it and it's a great machine. You'll be able to buy the 2012 for significantly cheaper, and it'll hold ...

If you could get in theory get a mac with exact the same specifications, it wouldn't be a problem. You can see two intel CPUs with at least some similarities (I don't know if the second was used in a mac, but I doubt it) A intel CPU produced in 2008 Intel Core 2 Extreme Q9000 4 Cores, 2.0GHz, 45nm, 6MB Cache A intel CPU produced in 2016 Intel Xeon E3-1578L ...

This is a tech support question and will likely be closed, but to answer the question, it should work. I have in the past run multiple OS's on external disks, then installed them into the chassis with no problem. All that changes is the connection interface.

You can look at Ubiquiti's EdgeMAX line. Don't be fooled by the size and price, it is a very capable device. It can run standard IPsec and you can also install OpenVPN on it. I have used OpenVPN for Windows and Unix machines with good results.

If you have large pockets (not necessarily cargo pants size), the Poker ][ is a very nice pocket-size board. Mine has an aftermarket aluminum case, which means it's a very tight fit in my pants. Vortex has since discontinued the Poker ][ in favor of the Pok3r, which comes with a stock aluminium case and has a different default fn-layer mapping. Other 60% ...
