Google changes its policy on the use of nicknames on his G + network. Strategic flexibility?


Having announced its commitment to ban the use of pseudonyms on his social network, and then finally have added one field "another name" to try to satisfy a maximum of Internet users, Google is totally back by announcing that it tolerates now the use of nicknames on Google +. Indeed, the firm will send more warnings and more will block members who continue to use of user IDs.

Google having the worst difficulties to effectively combat the resurgence of usernames on Google + users, especially since the opening of the service to all. Not necessarily, because he could mainly be a strategic decision to attract Internet users discouraged by the need to use their real identity to come try Google +.

Windows 8 improves research

Small update on the progress of the development of Windows 8. Microsoft refers to this time research.

New post on Building Windows 8 and new analysis of the novelties presented by Microsoft. This time, still talking about a bit of the screen startup and start menu, but under the prism of the function of research of bone that had already been much improved (both in terms of relevance of timeliness) with Vista and 7. Brian Uphoff, responsible for user experience in the development of Windows 8, presents the progress in the matter.

The start menu search function will be the part on the Start Screen of the most important interface Metro of Windows 8, receiving at the time of a display surface. Metadata and ToolTips will complement each result obtained, history to give more indication of the indexed files made by the system for each request. Another novelty, the search field will be able to correct a motion, propose a different spelling or offer suggestions. History of the local search as simple as that proposed by the engines on the Internet.

 Windows 8 Recherche (1)

Research programs

Using the Windows Feedback Program, Microsoft teams have noticed that in 67% of cases, the search function is simply used to start a program. Most of the users who took to reflex instead of using the working tree. Programs will therefore, in Windows 8, wanted by default, and this content by frequency of use. Then comes the search for files (22% of cases), accessible either by the shortcut "Windows + F", or via the side bar. A view with only the files that can be customized with various filters appeared as well. Another new "Windows + W" key combination to perform a search in the Control Panel, what quickly find the part of adjustment of a specific item (9% of cases).

Research in the settings and files

Research of e-mails via the interface of Windows search only about 0.5% of the queries users, given the integration of this function to various dedicated customers, Microsoft has logically decided does more deal. Email client developers can however take advantage of the Metro interface to add this feature to their tiles if they wish, and to propose an overview dedicated to these specific research.

Finally, and this is just as important, Microsoft announces that it takes care to optimize at best this search function, announcing that it will be 45 to 78% faster than in Windows 7 based on the configuration of the user (see the table below). Encouraging!

Test: QPAD MK-80, the mechanical keyboard to blue switches

Mechanical keyboards using Cherry MX switches are rare. This is the case of this QPAD MK - 80, an excellent keyboard for text as in the game...



Cherry MX Blue switches
Used plastic coatings
Connector complete

The price

The pro-gamers (or those who dream of becoming) necessarily know QPAD which, on the past year, has enriched its range of mousepads to devices of game such as mice, the microphones and keyboards. It is in this last category that fits the-80, un MK true mechanical game back-lit keyboard designed switches Cherry MX blues-based. This rather top-of-range solution integrates a hub offering two USB 2.0 ports and catch helmet and micro directly over the touchpad. Point quite rare to be noted, MK-80 comes with an is decent and well-proportioned, few covered as the rest of the keyboard of a plastic soft-touch very pleasant to the touch, less messy than brilliant surfaces and who has his interest for players, since it plays a role of grip. The keys are covered with a very interesting plastic processing, is also to avoid skidding and offer a nice typing comfort.

Leaving the MK - 80 of its box, we discover a rather heavy (about 1.3 Kg) keyboard to the original design. In addition to the famous logo of the mark which is used on the space bar and the letter "Q", we appreciate a gamer but typed racy design that knows how to stay sober. Efficiency being an expensive term target within QPAD, is rather well seen and we appreciate this clean but chiseled with taste design. So-called "Lock" diodes are integrated with a faithful to all aesthetic research, and if the success of the design of the keyboard backlight on four levels, it regrets that used blue diodes do not offer a uniform light on all the keys (the lower arrow Tab, or those of the entry and delete keys do almost not). This is of course the fault to the used switch takes place, mechanical keyboard requires. It is also noted that the rear face is is equipped with only two non-slip pads, which is a little just for well hold on the keyboard to the Office. And beyond these remarks of chipoteurs, it must be recognized that this keyboard QPAD to careful finishing has typed us in the eye.

And not only in the eye! Indeed, the ears are being strained - our comrades of open-space can longer. Keys mechanism that offers two separate sound returns (a first dry halfway when the key is activated, and a second more deaf fading when the key is pressed to the maximum) made this keyboard one of noisiest ever passed our hands. Difficult to forget the noise to the strike, and yet this MK-80 provides high performance. All to text is a pleasure, with a very fast strikes with a very specific point of activation and a marked touch return. Nothing to see therefore with Cherry MX black or red base, without click keyboards and requiring a greater pressure for activation. It is simple, if you are very comfortable with a keyboard, will be great fun to type text with MK-80. Typos are rare, the fluidity is and very good sensations.

At stake, the PS/2 port allows NKRO (N - Key Rollover), or the ability of the keyboard to take into account the simultaneous striking of several keys. The anti-ghosting by QPAD is not only to title marketing, and on our small usual tests results have shown that the keyboard controller is well able to individually manage each key, without generating keys ghosts even in now pressed the inevitable blocks "Z, Q, S, D" or "E, S, D, F". Note using the PS/2 adapter to USB, limiting the NKRO to 6 keys but the anti-ghosting is doing its job well. Concern was not appreciate switches blue our gaming sessions, especially the FPS, but it is clear that once the sensation of return tame one is comfortable with, even if it would have preferred a resistance a hair more pronounced. Which in the end is especially a few problems in games involving a large repetition of striking certain keys, year in which the Maroons switches are preferred, as in the RTS. Overall, play with the MK-80 small time to adapt but can be really nice if it adheres to the sensations it provides.

With regard to reliability, this QPAD inspire confidence. The mechanism of backlight having been positioned outside the switches, it has no effect on the strength of the keys known to be excellent in Cherry. And since the entries are transparent, no fear, never they will disappear. A keyboard that proves, beyond that, very resistant, with keys planned to be minted a minimum of 50 million times each. The headphone jack does no embarrassing breath as is sometimes the case with this kind of extension cables. And eventually it is noted that four connectors to connect are gold plated. The large cable of this keyboard that integrates USB, PS/2 and two Jack ports however lacks a bit of flexibility.

At the time of the accounts, QPAD MK-80 leaves an excellent impression. If it is incredibly noisy (his biggest failure), it will delight users who type many text without disappoint them at play. A keyboard that, at the level of competition, could however not be suitable for fans of games in which he greatly be spammer the same keys. Beyond that, and its high selling price (around €120 even!), difficult to do not advise as it offers very good performance, a comfort of use remarkable with the selection of its plastics, knowing that it is both durable and well finished, in addition to having an original and eye-catching design.

Lytro: a revolution for digital photo?

A method for taking innovative redefines the field of digital photography for a treatment of the development on the fly on his computer...

Lytro (6)

Lytro, a California-based start-up based in Mountain View, is poised to launch a funny digital camera of the same name with which it intends to propose a new alternative to digital photo enthusiasts. Method is called "Light Field Capture" and it is to capture the light field to form an image, that is to say all of the lights through a scene, not only light which has just hit the sensor of the device.

This unusual AFN sensor works with a complex optical set to save the information necessary for the creation of the photo, i.e. colors, the intensity of the light and the direction in which the broadcasts. This small paragraph technical to explain that in fact, each image taken with a Lytro device allows the development on the image at the time of the re - treatment, that is to say directly from his computer (soft to read and work images for CFLs format is available for Mac and not yet for Windows, but this cannot delay).

More need to make the development before taking a photo, can therefore choose a second time if you prefer that the sharpness is on the first, second or third plan, etc. Another advantage of the system, it allows to easily create a 3D relief from a single photo image, and this still at the time of reworking the image on his computer.

The first digital cameras of Lytro will be delivered from early 2012, and a U.S. mailing address holders can already order them at the price of $ 399 for the models blue and grey of 8 GB (350 photos stored on average, each snapshot weighing little more than 20 MB), and $ 499 for the 16 GB red model. To do nothing spoil the design of these cameras like no other is also that successful original. While length to integrate lenses, they are pretty with their chassis aluminum anodized and minimalist, with a simple button for shooting and "1.46 screen to control the framing.

By visiting the official website of Lytro, we learn in the sheet that the opening of these devices is fixed at f/2 and that they offer optical zoom 8 x. 24 X 36 mm equivalent range is unfortunately not indicated, as the definition achieved "HD" clichés. The Lytro weighs 214 g, are 11.2 cm long and 4.1 cm wide and high. And it would love able try a!

Francois Hollande.PNG

If parties and politicians are also and efforts to use digital tools in their campaigns, they sometimes face surprises of size. As François Hollande, inducted candidate of the Socialist Party in the presidential 2012 after winning the primary, including the head of campaign Internet is rendered account in the aftermath of this victory that the domain name "" was already reserved. Problematic, especially when the Manager of this name, domain, picture puzzle, had done in sort of redirect Internet users visiting this address to the website of the UMP.

But the ruling party has obviously nothing to do in this case, since this domain name is managed by a person who seeks employment in the communication, and found a great way to talk about him. The Socialist Party of course tries to recover this domain name and its current owner is willing to return it to François Hollande, declaring: "who knows, perhaps have it work on propose me?". When the head of the Socialist candidate Internet campaign wants to exclude any assumption of negligence on his part: "We have reserved a maximum of domain names in relationship with our campaign and our candidate so that they point to the official website."

It is true that the domain name Hollande2012 was reserved as of 2007 by the unemployed who had flair. François Hollande team plans to pursue legal action to recover this domain name, which will be a priori not necessary, as can be read on the page of the site currently online: "of course to not interfere with the political debate of the presidential 2012, this domain name will be released and handed over to Mr. Francois Holland".
