Philips’ New 43-inch 4K LED Monitor: Is It Still A Computer Monitor?

We hardly touched on computer monitor these days because, computer monitors are just computer monitors. There are not a lot to talk about unless it is a little on the insane side, like this Philips Momentum 43-inch 4K LED Monitor (436M6VBPAB). Yes. This thing is monstrous. It makes you wonder, is 43-inch still a computer monitor or a TV for a small living room? Anyways, here it is, the monstrosity from the Dutch electronics maker.

You Can Boost Your MacBook Pro’s Graphics With This Blackmagic eGPU

Today’s routers are pretty capable in terms of transmission and so, there’s really nothing wrong in hiding it, but what if you don’t have to? While we can’t say the same for most of today’s routers, the Norton Core Secure Wi-Fi Router is certainly the one router that you don’t have to hide away.

A Ukraine Outfit Have Created The Most Accurate Desktop 3D Scanner

While 3D printers are advancing in print resolution, we can’t say the same for 3D scanner. Now, if you must be asking: what’s wrong with today’s 3D scanners? Well, nothing, really – if you are just scanning a cup or an apple. But if you are looking into scanning objects as complex as the sculpture of Bodhisattva Manjushri (see below for the scan), then it will take more than just two axes and a rotating platform to do the job, and it surely takes more than just laser to map out all the intricate details. This is where the D3D-s Desktop 3D Scanner aims to fill the gap and it wants to do it affordably. About that… affordability is quite subjective, but more on that later.

This Keyboard Does What Microsoft Natural Keyboard Failed To Do

Keyboard was invented decades ago but the birth of computers did not invented keyboard; the keyboard design was essentially a carryover from the typewriter keyboard which was invented nearly 150 years ago. From then until today, not a lot has changed with a few attempt to alter the ergonomic, albeit not quite successfully. Case-in-point: Microsoft Natural keyboard. It didn’t go down well with a lot of users; it was big, clunky piece of hardware that, despite the ergonomic layout, forces your fingers to stretch to access some keys.
