Wireless HD video is here, so why do we still use HDMI cables?

Wireless HD devices are available today that can transmit high-def and even 4K video without wires. There are three competing standards. Here’s how they compare, and why wires aren’t going away anytime soon. Wires are boring. I mean it’s not like anyone could write half a dozen different articles on HDMI. The future is wireless. The problem is, wireless HD is a fickle mistress. Competing standards, technological limits and cost all make it far less popular than the ubiquitous HDMI cable for conveying video and audio between devices in your home. But if you don’t want to run ugly cables across your floor, or can’t run them through your walls, wireless can be great, and potentially worth the extra expense. Wireless HD devices generally consist of two boxes, a transmitter and a receiver, and range from $150 to $400. You plug your source device(s) — such as a cable box, media streamer or Blu-ray player — into the transmitter box. You plug the receiver box into your TV or projector. Cross your fingers, fire everything up and hopefully you’ll get video and audio without having to run a long wire or drill through walls. The two main compe...

The process of upgrading your graphics card is really the endpoint of a larger question, and

The process of upgrading your graphics card is really the endpoint of a larger question, and that question is the real story of a typical card upgrade. The actual physical swap-out is an anti-climax. Anyone comfortable with a screwdriver can do it in a few minutes. After all, all you have to do is uninstall your old card’s driver and unplug your old card (assuming you have one installed at all), plug in a new one, wire up any power connectors, install that card’s driver, connect your monitor, and enjoy. PCI Express slots have been standardized for ages. The only real wrinkle might be the power supply and cabling, which we’ll get into below, and the actual card fitment, which you can plan for in advance. Generally, it’s trivial stuff. If you have ever upgraded a video card, though, you know that concentrating on the nuts-and-bolts part of the process alone misses the point. It’s what leads up to the upgrade that’s the thornier bit. It all really begins with a much earlier question: Do I need a new graphics card? Answering this can be tricky, and it depends more on your software than your hardware. Consider why you feel you need an upgrade. Let&...

Xiaomi Poco F1 review: Mucho phone for un poco price

In the smartphone world, Xiaomi is the epitome of value for money. Now ranked fourth worldwide, it sells nearly one of every ten smartphones. But when companies start operating at such a large scale, the start-up mentality takes a backseat to more important considerations, and innovation can be stifled. Oppo circumvented it with the “independent” OnePlus, Huawei spun off Honor for Western markets, and Xiaomi is taking an approach somewhere in the middle. Its Poco sub-brand is still under its umbrella and benefits from its resources, but has the advantage of an easily pronounceable name, some creative freedom, and room to fail without hurting Xiaomi’s reputation. The first fruit of Poco’s labors, the F1, was announced and positively received a couple of months ago. A kitchen-sink flagship this isn’t, but the correct corners were cut to reach the very affordable $300 price. The Poco F1 is blazing fast and lasts forever on a charge — two very important features in any smartphone. But if my past few weeks with the device have taught me anything, it’s that specs alone don’t make or break the experience. Usability is more crucial and that̵...

12 Things To Expect When Visiting South America For The First Time

This year I traveled to South America for the first time. I started in Colombia and began my journey with fears of violence, guns, and drugs. I ended up being baffled at the stereotypes and completely falling in love with both the country and the continent. Here are some things I learned that can help make your first trip to South America wonderful. Today’s Colombia is a perfect example of a country suffering from its 1970s guerrilla warfare reputation. Though it can be ironic to feel safe when all the homes have thick metal gates in front and a guard at the door, it’s unlikely you’ll see gangs with guns or drug deals. The Venezuelan crisis made my family nervous about my trip as we heard about violence spilling across borders. Every Venezuelan I met (and there were many) was hard-working and wanted, desperately, for things to improve in their country so they could return. I was surprised that, in many South American countries, signs were not translated into any other language. This included museums and public transportation. Even some airlines only make announcements in Spanish, which I found scary while traveling through bad turbulence because I didn’t know whether to panic. T...

About the author Dave Perkon is technical editor for Control Design. He has engineered and managed automation projects for Fortune 500 companies in the medical, automotive, semiconductor, defense and solar industries. Safety is a critical factor across the industrial landscape. But while reducing risk on the plant floor has been a constant for more than a century, safety standards have undergone a global transformation in recent years. Dave Perkon is technical editor for Control Design.
