Having a third screen with the MBP 

  • Samsung screen: The usual VGA/HDMI adapter
  • iPad: Using DuetDisplay

Although there are some performance issues with Duet, to display text (which is what I do) is just fine. Now I can have the browser, the IDE (PyCharm if you are wondering) and iTerm 2.

Since is another screen attached to the laptop you can use it to display any other thing that is being processed by your main computer, and can move apps between the screens with no problem at all.

The iPad Pro as main computer for programming

Definitively an interesting way to solve his problems with carrying the whole laptop. To me having having a full laptop is more important than that mobility, this because the multitask capability of the laptop vs the “one or two” apps approach in the iPad.

Still a nice way to work when you don’t have your laptop near to you.

Ceramic phone, no thank you.. 

Xiaomi made a beautiful phone, with a huge screen in a relatively small body, with a ceramic back that is resistant to scratches.. what can be wrong??.. well, ceramic is not that good when hitting the floor.

Is not that I’m getting it or not getting it because of this, I’m not fan of Xiaomi nor fan of anything that uses a heavily modified Android, just because updates are… well.. let’s say that updates are not that good in something different than vanilla android.

Replacing the auto focus flex of a Canon 18-55 IS lens

A couple of days ago I got the flex for the focus mechanism in my 18-55 camera lens, but in my lack of experience I didn’t do a god job, the focus moved, and the camera tried to focus (it really tries) but the image remained blurry. So I had to put the flex in place again, the first attempt was not perfect. In order to do this. Here some pictures.

Are there problems with the surface laptop?

I think the major problem with the surface laptop is the fact that the price does not match the target audience, I mean, the main purpose is students and $999 for an entry laptop is not something for a student.

Also, for $999 you can get a better laptop that lets you run your favorite Browser, open apps that you downloaded from the Internet and configure the way you like it.

Now, this thing runs windows, let’s use another version of windows 10… well, you have to pay for the license then, I mean, pay more for something that you can get with a cheaper laptop. read more
