Computers

Have you ever tried moving a large 20GB file from one computer to another without a network-attached storage drive? It’s a painful, slow process with a substantial chance of failure. Also, seeing a Windows or Mac computer progress bar estimate that it’s going to take a little over a year to finish the data transfer doesn’t exactly help.

That old computer is getting longer in the tooth. Sure, when you got it, Windows Me was the latest and greatest, and it had a whopping 40GB hard drive… maybe even 256MB of RAM. Imagine that. Nowadays, that computer seems like it belongs in Barney Rubble's den, not your home office. If you're faced with the oft-daunting task of choosing a new computer, read on for a few suggestions.

I’ve seen powerful images in all facets of photography, from street portraiture to landscapes. As I grow and see my own photographic vision develop, more and more the powerful moments I’m capturing are the small, personal moments... the moment two children make each other laugh, a family all snuggled in bed together... a mother bathing her child in the kitchen sink.

An external sound system completes a home theater, and turning one on yields unexpected pleasures. Recently, I stumbled upon a new TV series on HBO and a romantic drama on Blu-ray Disc both designed to indulge the ears.

The series, True Blood, features a waitress who can hear what people are thinking. As she works her way past tables, thoughts cascade toward her from every direction. And the audience hears the cacophony, too, brilliantly steered from multiple speakers at the sides of the TV and near the sofa.

The movie, August Rush, on Blu-ray and also available on DVD, features a humdinger of an opener: a child prodigy deciphers the musical nature of wind rustling the field in which he's standing. As the wind shifts, the sound washes over the audience from various directions. The powerful effect is all but lost on viewers relying on the TV's internal speakers alone. The same is true for the restaurant sounds in True Blood.

Giving cell phones to your kids just to be able to stay in touch with them locally seems like a waste of money, considering the alternative—no-fee two-way radios. What used to be called walkie-talkies are now smaller, lighter and more reliable than ever. Transmission distances range from about two to 18 miles or more. Commercial-class models carried by employees in a sprawling enterprise can help a business watch its pennies, too.

Last year at CES, it was all about the Ultrabook. Ultrathin and ultraportable but yet still powerful enough to be used as a capable computer, the Ultrabook was everything people wanted in a notebook. Now it seems that CES 2013 was all about the mobile all-in-one computer.

Touch screens are great until they get touched by greasy fingers or inadvertently scratched by jewelry or a sharp object. If you've invested in an iPhone 4, the price of adding a layer of protection is almost negligible compared to the repair or replacement costs. One of the most popular protectors is the Zagg Invisible Shield, available in three different configurations for the Apple iPhone 4.

Getting started with 3D requires more than the TV. To see depth you need 3D glasses, and to be sociable, more than one pair. You may also opt for a 3D-capable Blu-ray Disc player. So, you can see why a bundle is a good thing. B&H has assembled 30 kits involving 3D TVs in different series and screen sizes. Grab a bundle by July 3, and you'll save $300 off the regular price.
