Tamron 28-75mm f2.8 Di III RXD Zoom REVIEW

By | March 11th, 2019|Categories: AV Hub|

Flying Start

Tamron’s first lens in the Sony FE mirrorless mount is appropriately a standard zoom, but with the twin attractions of an f2.8 constant aperture and an affordable price tag.

Things are hotting up in the Sony FE mount world and not just because more third-party lens makers are joining the club, but also because Sony itself is fast-tracking a program of new lenses, including more high-end ‘G Master’ models. And it’s going to get hotter now that Sony finally has some competition in the full-35mm mirrorless space, although it has a very substantial head start on Canon and Nikon which you can be sure it’s determined to maintain (starting with the promise of 12 more FE lenses within the next year or so).… Read the full article

By | March 11th, 2019|Categories: TechRadar|

Employees from dozens of major organizations have accidentally been leaking sensitive company and customer data by sharing public links to files in their Box enterprise storage accounts.

The discovery was made by the cybersecurity firm Adveris which found that major tech and corporate giants had inadvertently left company data exposed.

Data stored in a Box enterprise account is private by default but users have the ability to share files and folders with anyone through a publicly accessible link. Adveris discovered that these secret links can easily be discovered by others.… Read the full article

By | March 11th, 2019|Categories: Audiohead|Tags: , , , , , |

Schiit Audio recently hosted a get-together at their retail space in downtown Newhall. The Southern California location was entertaining several new products that have yet to hit the company’s retail website, all set up in a private listening room as part of a monthly event schedule to satiate a deep list of upcoming products set to release this year.

The three newest offerings on display are actually a slight departure from the personal audio core of Schiit’s slate of hifi components.… Read the full article

Android Q developer beta might launch today

By | March 11th, 2019|Categories: TechRadar|

Android Q, the next version of the mobile operating system, could be launching its developer preview later today, thanks to speculation over a date filter in Google’s bug tracker.

A template explaining how to file bug reports for Android Q Beta was spotted by XDA Developers Editor-in-Chief Mishaal Rahman. 

The sample (which reportedly could be found here but has since been removed) seemed to be directed at OEMs, and advises reporters to check if the issue has already been filed by clicking a link (, still working as of publication) leading to a repository – which only lists bug tickets created on or after March 11, 2019.… Read the full article

Apple sends March 25 event invite, likely to unveil its video streaming service

By | March 11th, 2019|Categories: TechRadar|

Apple is ready to yell 'action' to launch its long-awaited video streaming service – a bid to take on Netflix – judging from suggestively-titled invites for its next major launch event that went out today.

The Apple keynote will takes place on March 25 with the not-so-subtle title 'It's show time,' according to Engadget and other members of the media. 

It appears as if Apple is boldly bringing Hollywood to its Silicon Valley headquarters, with the event scheduled to occur at its own Steve Jobs Theater in Cupertino.… Read the full article

Intel Ice Lake release date, news and features

By | March 11th, 2019|Categories: TechRadar|

The computing world has eagerly waited for Intel to boldly show us something we haven’t seen before – and that might be Intel Ice Lake, the company’s first 10nm CPU family.

These processors will see Intel finally move away from its 14nm process, which has been enhanced since the introduction of Broadwell in 2014. With AMD going full steam ahead with 7nm and Ryzen 3rd Generation (and presumably Ryzen Threadripper 3rd Generation), it’s about time for Intel’s processors to evolve.… Read the full article

AirPlay 2 for Roku could bring Apple’s streaming service to the set-top box

By | March 11th, 2019|Categories: TechRadar|

Roku and Apple may on the verge of closing a deal that would bring AirPlay 2 support to Roku streaming devices, according to sources who are familiar to the matter.

The news was first reported by MacRumors, who says that AirPlay 2 would be available via a software update on select Roku players and Roku TVs – but warned that not all devices under the umbrella receive it. 

Sonos faced a similar issue when it made AirPlay 2 available on the Sonos Beam and Sonos One speaker, so it's unsurprising that Roku would also run into difficulties putting the software on older devices.… Read the full article

Intel Lakefield release date, news and rumors

By | March 11th, 2019|Categories: TechRadar|

Intel must be feeling the heat from Qualcomm Snapdragon-powered laptops, because the company is now developing its first hybrid processor or system-on-a-chip (SOC).

Meet Lakefield, an Intel processor unlike anything you’ve seen before, as it comes packed with more than one type of CPU core to create a better-rounded chip. Additionally, these hybrid chips can even come with their own integrated memory, I/O interface, wireless connectivity and, of course, onboard graphics. 

In this way, Lakefield operates more like the ARM processor found in your smartphone than the traditional computer CPUs that have been powering laptops and desktop PCs practically since they were invented.… Read the full article
