GoPro is the fastest growing camera company

Blog: GoPro is the fastest growing camera company

Who created
Nick Woodman is a surfer from California (United States) who enjoys surfing and other sports, but also like to record it. The idea came when he was surfing on the beach with friends and had no way to record the moments in the waves with friends. So he created a small camera that can be placed anywhere and shoot in high definition, so sports can practice and record the moments without having to be holding the camera.

Quality and durability
Then he created the GoPro, a small camera with very good quality (1080p HD), which accompanied by a rigid waterproof box, can be taken anywhere, whether in the desert, a mountain full of snow or even under water, can be taken anywhere. The camera comes with other accessories that allow to be placed as needed: in a surfboard, a helmet, on top of the car, a motorbike or bicycle, on a plane, chest, etc., it can be mounted anywhere.

Success
Founded in 2009, its success was immediate, since it is a time where people share videos on the Internet, had a tremendous growth, many people got to love this camera ideal for sports. Since the camera view can be very close to the athlete or his view, the videos on the Internet are a huge success, giving the place of some of the best videos on the Internet. Only in 2011 were sold 800,000 cameras worldwide, making the company raise $250 million.

Advertising
The company hardly needs advertises for the camera, because its customers share their videos on the Internet, it is estimated that every two minutes is sent to YouTube a video with a GoPro, and users are clear that was shot with a GoPro. But the company is keen to be in extreme events and sports competitions, like Skate or Ski competitions.

Who uses them
Not only is used by amateurs, but the first camera used by lovers of sports and more and more by entertainement professionals, television program makers are increasingly using these cameras, for example the Discovery Channel. Its excellent image quality and durability, makes any producer interested in using it.

Viral Videos
The videos are uploaded to the Internet that are so impressive and spectacular that reach millions of views. The company launched the new model "HD GoPro HERO 2" and offered cameras to several sportsmen and adventurers, and with all expenses paid, led them to amazing places so they could record these moments. With all these moments collected, the company created a 5-minute video and put it on your Youtube channel, from one day to onother, the videos was viral, everybody wanted to see, everyone liked to see it, and in just three months in the YouTube the video had 10 million views. This video can be seen on the bottom of the post.

Geocaching: Podium 3D for the FTF (with HTML code for you to use on your caches)

Blog: Geocaching - Podium 3D for the FTF

I do Geocaching for some time, but only find caches not hiding them. Now I decided it was time for me to be contributing to the game and started to hide some of my own caches. To better create the listing of my cache I made a 3D podium in 'Blender' for the FTF's, where that I indicate on the image (via HTML code) the three fastest to do the FTF.

Geocaching FTF podium

If you want you can use the image to place it in your own caches, if only you use it directly from the source http://fotos.sapo.pt/wvWA1DIZEpZ939NsTsth, direct link http://c6.quickcachr.fotos.sapo.pt/i/oa308501f/10555913_ewQEi.jpeg (640x480).

Here I make available the HTML code for you to use the directly in your own 'Listing', just copy/paste, then change the name of the cache and the names of FTF's with the respective links. The result will be the ID of the cache at the top left on the image, and name of each geocacher (with link) under the number.

Geocaching: Pódio 3D para os FTF (com código HTML para usar nas suas caches)

Blog: Geocaching - Pódio 3D para os FTF

Faço Geocaching à já algum tempo, mas só a encontrar não de esconder. Agora decidi que é altura de ser eu a contribuir para o jogo e comecei a colocar as minhas próprias caches. Para melhor criar um listing da minha cache fiz um pódio em 3D no «Blender» para indicar sobre a imagem (via código HTML) os três mais rápidos a fazer o FTF da cache.

Se quiser pode usar a imagem para utilizar nas suas próprias caches, desde que use a imagem directamente da fonte http://fotos.sapo.pt/wvWA1DIZEpZ939NsTsth, link directo http://c6.quickcachr.fotos.sapo.pt/i/oa308501f/10555913_ewQEi.jpeg (640x480).

Aqui disponibilizo o código HTML para usar directamente no seu próprio «Listing», é só copiar/colar, depois alterar o nome da cache e os nomes dos FTF's com os respectivos links. O resultado será, o ID da cache no topo superior esquerdo da imagem, e o nome de cada geocacher (com link) debaixo do respectivo número.

What is SEO: Search Engine Optimization

Blog: SEO: Search Engine Optimization

What is SEO
SEO: Search Engine Optimization is a few strategies and tools to increase the chance of your site/pages appear in the top results when someone does a search on a search engine such as Google.

How does it work
When a user searches a term or a series of words in a search engine, and if your site has the answer, then you want the link/page of your site/blog tobe on top of these results, thus increasing traffic to your site, increasing your business if that is the case.

Save in advertising
Using good SEO techniques, you will save on advertising, because the users will get to your site naturally and often, but by placing ads on the Internet, a new user can go directly to your site without knowing about it in a search about what your site offers.

Problem uploading a video on YouTube

Blog: Problem uploading a video on YouTube

There are several situations which may give problems with YouTube and cause a conflict that prevents you from uploading videos, make the transfer too slow, or possibly stops in the middle of uploading the video. There is no single solution because the problem may be the computer, browser, antivirus, etc.. I will then present a few tips to help solve this problem.

YouTube now has a maximum of 15 minutes per video for normal users, who are not YouTube Partners. So if your video is longer than 15 minutes will not be accepted and these solutions will not help you.

Use an old version of the uploader
If the version of your browser is old, may not be compatible with the current video uploader, you should use the old version of YouTube uploader which can be found at page http://www.youtube.com/my_videos_upload?forceui=3.

Conflicts with Anti-virus
Your anti-virus will be creating conflict with the action and stop the upload in the middle. You will have to open the antivirus program you are using and turn it off before starting the upload, at the end of uploading the video you should enable it again.

Conflicts with the Firewall
The firewall that you use may be blocking or stoping the video upload. For this you should disable the firewall before uploading the video. It may be that firewall you have installed or the firewall of the anti-virus.

Browser Cache
You may have to do a clean the browser cache, so your browser be empty from all its uses.

Reinstall the browser
It may be some settings or something that is influencing the application loading the video. If you uninstall and reinstall your browser, you can solve this problem, if you can not detect the problem.

Use the latest version of browser
You should use the latest version of your browser, because older versions may not be compatible with new applications of the sites.

Change browser
Sometimes it is a matter of browser or browser version, you can switch browsers (Chrome, FireFox, IE, Opera, etc) and this may no longer happen. This situation problems or conflicts could happen because other programs are causing a particular problem to the browser.

Internet connection
In 3G connection, the problem may not be the computer but the internet connection. To solve this you can disconnect the connection and make a new connection to the Internet.

Apple iPad3 Features

Blog: Apple iPad3 Features

Pick up the new iPad and suddenly, it’s clear. You’re actually touching your photos, reading a book, playing the piano. Nothing comes between you and what you love. To make that hands-on experience even better, we made the fundamental elements of iPad better — the display, the camera, the wireless connection. All of which makes the new, third-generation iPad capable of so much more than you ever imagined.

Retina display. See everything like never before


Four times more pixels than iPad 2. Razor-sharp text. Richer colors. The Retina display transforms the entire iPad experience. So everything looks and feels incredibly lifelike and perfectly detailed.

The best display ever on a mobile device
Everything you do with iPad, you do through its large, beautiful display. And when the display is better, the entire iPad experience is better. The Retina display on the new iPad features a 2048-by-1536 resolution, 44 percent greater color saturation, and an astounding 3.1 million pixels — in the same 9.7-inch space. That’s four times the number of pixels in iPad 2 and a million more than an HDTV. Those pixels are so close together, your eyes can’t discern individual ones at a normal viewing distance. When you can’t see the pixels, you see the whole picture. Or article. Or game. In ways you never could before.

Breakthrough technology. For a breakthrough display
In order to create a display with four times the pixels, we had to design it in a completely new way. You see, every pixel in a display has multiple signals telling it when to light up. But when you have a lot of pixels and a lot of signals on the same plane, signals get crossed and image quality suffers. To make sure everything on the new iPad looks crystal clear, Apple engineers elevated the pixels onto a different plane — separating them from the signals. It’s technology that’s breakthrough. Just like the new iPad itself.

Pixel-perfect performance


The A5X chip with quad-core graphics drives four times the pixels of iPad 2 yet it delivers the same smoothness and fluidity iPad is known for. Even with all that extra oomph, the new iPad still gets an amazing 10 hours of battery life.

More power on display
The Retina display on the new iPad wouldn’t be possible without the new and powerful A5X chip. It drives power to every one of the 3.1 million pixels in the display. And its quad-core graphics processing makes everything you do on iPad feel incredibly responsive. From the little things like swiping, scrolling, and pinching to the big things like editing photos in the new iPhoto, applying filters and transitions in iMovie, and, of course, playing games.

Instant on. Touch and go
You use your iPad all the time. A few minutes here, an hour or so there. And each time you press the Home button or open the Smart Cover, it’s ready to go. Instantly. That’s the work of flash storage. It’s fast and reliable, so you can get to your apps and do whatever you need to do, pronto.

Battery life spared
The new iPad features a Retina display with four times the pixels of iPad 2 and quad-core graphics. How much of an effect does that have on battery life? Almost none. You still get up to 10 hours of power to read, watch, play, write, and create whatever you want, all you want.

iSight


The iSight camera. Your memories have never been clearer.
The new iPad features Apple’s 5-megapixel iSight camera. Designed with advanced optics, it lets you shoot gorgeous photos and 1080p HD video.

Shoot 5-megapixel still images
The 5-megapixel iSight camera features a backside illumination sensor that captures great-looking pictures whether by sunlight or candlelight. Autofocus, tap to focus, and tap to set exposure functions mean every photo you take instantly becomes a frameworthy gem. And with built-in face detection that automatically balances focus and exposure across up to 10 faces, there’s more room for more grins. So everyone look at iPad and say “Cheese.”

Record HD video in full 1080p
Sometimes life takes you by surprise. You’re reading a best seller on your iPad waiting for the morning train when you spy a gifted performer on the platform. Or you’re browsing the web on the couch when your dog trots by wearing your daughter’s tutu. The iSight camera on the new iPad lets you capture all these unpredictable, beautiful, and hilarious moments. In 1080p HD, no less. And with automatic video stabilization, your recording is free of bumps and shakes. Which is a big advantage when you’re laughing uncontrollably.

It’s all in the lenses
Megapixels matter. But the quality of a photo is determined by other things, too — like the camera’s optics, image signal processor, and software. The iSight camera uses advanced optics to give you the best picture possible. With an ƒ/2.4 aperture and a five-element lens, it captures light efficiently to produce a sharper overall image. And the hybrid infrared filter — typically reserved for expensive SLR cameras — keeps out harmful IR light for more accurate, uniform colors.

4G


Ultrafast 4G LTE. Full speed ahead.
Built with the latest in wireless technology, the new iPad lets you connect to fast data networks around the world — up to 4G LTE.

World ready. And very well connected
You use your iPad a lot, so you want it with you wherever you go. The new iPad offers the most comprehensive support for networks around the world. It’s designed with cellular antennas that access a larger frequency spectrum. That means you can get online almost anywhere you are — whether you’re on AT&T or Verizon. You can even pop in a local SIM card to get a connection when you’re traveling.

Really really fast is your only option
The new iPad supports fast cellular networks the world over — up to 4G LTE.2 So you can browse the web, stream content, or download a movie at blazing-fast speeds. It also works on GSM/UMTS worldwide network technologies including HSPA+ and DC-HSDPA — the fastest 3G networks out there. You’ll see downlink speeds up to 42 Mbps with DC-HSDPA and up to 21.1 Mbps with HSPA+.

iPad as a personal hotspot
Now for the first time, you can share the high-speed data connection on your iPad. If your carrier supports it, iPad can act as a personal hotspot for connecting up to five devices — such as a MacBook Air, an iPod touch, or another iPad — over Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, or USB.

iOS


The world’s most advanced mobile operating system.
iOS is the magic behind iPad. It lets you see and do everything using Multi-Touch. It includes all the powerful, innovative, and fun built-in apps you use every day, many times a day. It’s the preferred choice for app developers. And it’s yet another reason no other device comes close to iPad.

iCloud


Your content.
On all your devices.
iCloud stores your music, photos, apps, mail, contacts, calendars, documents, and more and wirelessly pushes them to all your devices.4 So if you buy a song, take a photo, or edit a calendar event on your iPad, iCloud makes sure it appears on your Mac, iPhone, and iPod touch, too. You don’t have to do a thing.

Dictation


Talking is the new typing.
Write an email. Send a text. Search the web. Or create a note. And do it all with only your voice. Instead of typing, tap the microphone icon on the keyboard. Then say what you want to say while your iPad listens. Tap Done and, just like that, your spoken words become written words. Dictation also works with third-party apps, so you can do things like update your Facebook status or share a thought on your Twitter feed.

App Store


Something for everyone. And everything.
Apps for iPad aren’t like anything else. That’s because every app — 200,000 and counting — is designed to work with iPad features like the beautiful 9.7-inch screen, Multi-Touch, the accelerometer, the gyroscope, and more.

Over 200,000 apps to choose from
