Aniracetam Cognitive Enhancers Unlock Limitless Potential
 
06:13
http://w34.us/amz/B006ICFUCW Aniracetam is marketed as a cognitive enhancer, but probably anti-anxiety medication is a fairer term. It doesn't make me smarter, just more focused and less distracted. That does let me do more "smart" things, and be more productive, and sleep better, and generally have a higher quality of life, but it wasn't like I instantly hand photographic memory. Aniracetam has drastically improved my quality of life, but I am not a doctor, so review your medications with your physician before you changes to your prescriptions.

How Fast Is Thunderbolt 2? Intel talks about 4k and Gigabytes Per Second
 
01:53
Thunderbolt 2 enables two 20Gbps bi-direction channels instead of two sets of 10Gbps channels. There's no overall increase in bandwidth, but the solution is now more capable. Since there's 20Gbps of bandwidth per channel, you can now do 4K video over Thunderbolt. You can also expect to see higher max transfer rates for storage. Whereas most Thunderbolt storage devices top out at 800 - 900MB/s, Thunderbolt 2 should raise that to around 1500MB/s. These new specs allow for 4k Video to be output while simultaneously reading from disks or attached storage like the Lacie Little Big Disk simultaneously. With out these advancements in the transfer capabilities editing in UHD would be very cumbersome and take at least twice as long.

Adwords vs. Adsense: Buy and Sell Ads With Google
 
03:50
Adwords and Adsense are two sides of the same coin. Adsense is for publishers to monetize their content, and Adwords is for advertisers to place ads in on content providers websites. If you want to make money with your blog, you will want to use adsense for sure, but to "kick start" your growth you may want to also use adwords to market your content.

Install Instructions for E-Autogrilles 51-0360 07-15 Jeep Wrangler JK Full Width Front Bumper
 
08:44
http://w34.us/amz/B00SKN9PNC E-Autogrilles off road bumpers are made from durable 3/16" powder coated steel for corrosion protection and durability. Our heavy duty construction has been designed and tested to endure the harshes environments. High strength D-Ring mounts(D-Rings included) are machine-welded on the inside and out for increased strength. The install of this bumper is pretty straight forward but there are a few tricks regarding the fog lights, and the wiring that are worth taking note of. You need an 18mm Socket or wrench and a screwdriver to complete the install. I have the warthog grille and this completes the look I was going for. This bumper is exactly what I was looking for. While Stubby bumpers are more popular than full width bumpers, they have this "I jury rigged this" look. This grille looks like it could be from the factory, only more aggressive. In fact this looks like a more heavy duty version of the "Call of Duty Black Ops" bumper. Because this bumper fills in the gap between the fenders and the bumper this is sometimes called a "euro-bumper". Does the package come beat up? Yes. But with corner protectors and heavy foam wrapping that didn't impact the look of the bumper. This is a 120 pounds of cold steel. It probably doesn't matter what you wrap it in, in shipping the container is going to get beat up. The install takes about 30 minutes. The Bumper comes with everything you need except an 18mm Socket wrench, and an extender for the fog light wires, ( iJDMTOY (2) 5202 H16 Extension Wire Harness Sockets For Headlights, Fog Lights Retrofit Work Use ) The bumper is HEAVY. You can also tell it is well made. The 12,000 pound rating on the winch plate makes it really apparent that this is not the stock bumper. This ways about 10x as much and offers a real metal skid plate, where as the stock has a plastic plate that won't do anything beyond pack down the snow. I was blown away at how fast this arrived. It was 3 business days. I don't know that you can be guaranteed that speed, but it is nice to know they are fast. To co-ordinate shipping since this is a bigger item than what likely I wanted delivered to my apartment I contacted E-Autogrilles before ordering and they were really fast to respond. It means a lot to me that I can communicate with the manufacturer, as it shows they care about the product. The video shows the bumper install process, and the finished look.

By going to about:flags in Google Chrome, you can enable many hidden features in Google Chrome. One of the most useful of these features is the ability to enable GPU acceleration. This speeds up the rendering of the page, and often improves the appearance of screen fonts. GPU Acceleration is a feature that is still in testing, so it may not work with all hardware, or may not render all pages correctly, but it has worked very well for me on all of the computers I have tested.

Siri vs Cortana vs Google Now vs Plexi : Voice Assistant Shoot out
 
05:51
http://www.recognant.com is now the owner of Plexi This is a test of just over 20 questions comparing information retrieval features of Siri, Microsoft Cortana, Google Now, and Plexi. Cortana just was released to developers as part of the Windows Phone 8.1 update and we wanted to see how she stacked up to the competition. Each question was asked the same way to each assistant. We re-tried if voice recognition was an issue so that they would be tested on their ability to answer questions rather than the pronunciation of the user. Yes, my product won. But Siri did nearly as well. Plexi will do more of the "call", "text", and "calendar" stuff soon, but Windows Phone API's tend to be a bit protective of privacy and so we didn't optimize for those tasks. Think of this as a review of how Natural Language Processing can help with your homework. It is worth noting Plexi doesn't use Wolfram Alpha, and only uses Wikipedia for abstracts on certain topics. Plexi believes it is a failure if we have to drop the user to a search result when they didn't ask for search. Spell your name Siri, Cortana, Plexi, and Google now can't spell their own name. What's happening with Microsoft Cortana? Siri shows tweets, Cortana searches, Google now goes to news search. Plexi answers directly. Stock price for Microsoft. They all give back the same current stock price. Opening stock price for Microsoft. Siri, Cortana, and Google now say current stock price. Plexi answers the question with Opening price. Will it rain tomorrow? Siri, Google now, and Cortana show weather for the week. Plexi answers and gives weather conditions for tomorrow. Ice cream events near me. Siri searches my calendar. Google finds ice cream shops. Cortana gives events 1000+ miles away. Plex finds local ice cream events. Where can I recharge my Tesla? Siri, Google now and Cortana to to search. Plexi finds electric car charging stations nearby. How much does it cost to rent an apartment here? Siri lists apartment complexes, Google now and Cortana do a web search. Plexi gives answer and listings. Book a hotel in Washington for 3 nights starting Thursday. Plexi is the only one to respond with Hotels with actual availability the nights specified. Roll the Dice. Google Now and Cortana go to search. Siri and Plexi both roll the dice. Flip a coin. Google now and Cortana go to web search. Siri and Plexi get it right. Tell me a story Google now goes to image search, Siri doesn't get it. Cortana wants to send a message and Plexi tells a story. Movies currently playing. Google now and Cortana go to web search. Siri and Plexi show movies now playing. What is your favorite movie? Siri and Plexi give a playful personality response. What is a cougar? Siri and Plexi give the Wikipedia abstract, Google Now gives two dictionary definitions, one is not appropriate for children. How large is a jaguar? Cortana, Siri, and Google all give web results. Plexi provides the answer directly. How big is a cougar? Cortana, Siri, and Google all give web results. Plexi provides the answer directly. What does a jaguar eat? Cortana, Siri, and Google all give web results. Plexi provides the answer directly. Who is the leader of Turkey? Cortana does a web search. Google and Siri give the wrong answer. The President in Turkey is a figurehead. As Plexi says the prime minister is the leader. What is the GDP of Turkey Everyone gets this right. What languages are spoken in Turkey? Siri, Google, and Cortana only provide one language. In Turkey, Kurdish is spoken by about 1 in 4 people. Where can I find a dog? Cortana's weak spot is voice recognition. She understands "dog" as "dawg" taking me to DAWG Inc.

Tesla Model S Roadtrip From San Jose to San Diego: Superchargers Work
 
09:58
We drove the Tesla Model S from San Jose, CA to San Diego, CA. The roadtrip was very smooth and the car does a great job cutting road noise making it much more relaxing a trip than it would be in almost any other vehicle. Along the way we recharged and ate at Harris Ranch, and Yogurt Land. At the SpaceX dealership I saw the Tesla Model X though the window. This was also the only stop we had to wait to charge. Model S is a rear wheel drive electric vehicle. The liquid-cooled powertrain includes the battery, motor, drive inverter, and gear box. 60 kWh microprocessor controlled, lithium-ion battery Three phase, four pole AC induction motor with copper rotor Drive inverter with variable frequency drive and regenerative braking system Single speed fixed gear with 9.73:1 reduction ratio Suspension, Steering, and Brakes Double wishbone, virtual steer axis coil spring front suspension and independent multi-link coil spring rear suspension Variable ratio, speed sensitive, rack and pinion electronic power steering

How To Reduce Eye Strain Using Blue Cut Glasses (SeeCoat / Prevencia / Irlen) 4k
 
05:21
Blue Light is a type of short wavelength UV light that can be found in just about everything from sunshine to computer screens. A healthy amount of Blue Light from sunlight is good for the human body. However, concentrated amounts of Blue Light from backlit screens like computers, tablets, cellphones, and televisions can be dangerous to your eyes. This coating is also called B+W or Crizal Prevencia As the widespread use of smartphones, tablet devices and computers increases the time we face a screen, more and more people suffer from eyestrain symptoms. One cause of this is believed to be the blue light emitted from the display on such devices. The shorter the wavelength, the stronger energy a light wave has, and this may cause eye fatigue. Blue light, which is next to ultraviolet light on the electromagnetic spectrum, has a shorter wavelength than other visible light. It also tends to be diffused and is believed to cause flickering in the vision. If you have seen the Yellow Gunnar glasses, this is what they claim they are filtering. Though my experience is that they are too yellow, and don't actually do a good job at filtering in the Blue spectrum. There is a movement to generically call all the conditions that make you sensitive to certain light spectrums as irlen syndrome which I think is stupid. Lastly, this is my first 4k Video, and I don't have an animated intro, rendered in 4k yet, so you get the ugly logo for 3 seconds.

While 1.8 inch SSD are pretty much only available in up to 256 Gigs that's what I went with. The Crucial m4 mSATA SSD delivers all of the award-winning performance and reliability of the Crucial m4 SSD - in a drive that's an eighth of the size. Measuring in at about one-third the size of a standard business card (3cm x 5cm), the Crucial m4 mSATA is designed primarily for ultrathin laptop users who want to dramatically increase their system's performance. Because of its small form factor, the Crucial m4 mSATA SSD can do things that hard drives and other SSDs often can't: it can serve as a primary storage device in ultrathin laptops, it can attach directly to the mSATA socket on your system's motherboard (freeing up a hard drive bay), or it can act as a cache to complement the performance of an existing hard drive. Offering lightweight construction, inherent power savings, travel-worthy durability, and validation for Intel Smart Response technology, the Crucial m4 mSATA SSD packs powerful performance in a tiny mSATA form factor.

In the navigation bar enter about:flags and scroll down to disable 3rd party cookies, and select "enable" which disables the cookies. This is slightly counter intuitive.

Oracle DB Vs MySQL for Enterprise DataBase Deployments
 
08:54
Oracle DB is big, and expensive, but it brings a lot to the "table" when compared with MySQL. MySQL has limited ability to audit. MySQL's security is unsophisticated. There are no groups or roles, no ability to deny a privilege (you can only grant privileges). A user who logs in with the same username and password from different network addresses may be treated as a completely separate user. There is no built-in encryption comparable to Oracle. MySQL's Authentication is built-in. There is no LDAP, Active Directory, or other external authentication capability. MySQL has no MPP (massively parallel processing ) support. Unlike Oracle MySQL has no fractional-second storage type for times, dates, or intervals. There is no RAC (Real Application Cluster) support in My SQL, and no failover or server promotion either. These are strong features in Oracle MySQL's number of joins per query is limited to 61. Oracle's limit is much larger. MySQL Replication is asynchronous and has many limitations and edge cases. For example, it is single-threaded, so a powerful slave can find it hard to replicate fast enough to keep up with a less powerful master.
