Dell’s newest monitor is a 49-inch, dual QHD, curved behemoth

By Valentina Palladino

Valentina Palladino

Ultra-wide monitors are overwhelming yet impressive to behold, and Dell thinks it has made one that will appeal to all types of professionals. The new U4919DW UltraSharp 49-inch curved monitor nods to the massive gaming monitors made by Samsung, MSI, and others, but it adds a workplace spin while upping the resolution to QHD.

Dell describes the U4919DW as the equivalent of two 27-inch monitors stuck together, and its dual mode cements that comparison. Users can fill the entire screen with their desired programs, or they can split it down the middle so the display literally looks like a beast with two heads—two different screens sitting side by side on a single stand.

What to expect from Google’s hardware event: Pixel 3, Pixel Slate, and more

By Ron Amadeo

The third annual Google hardware extravaganza is kicking off in just a few days. On October 9 at 11am, Google will show off its next flagship smartphone, the Pixel 3, along with a few other products. The new Pixel phone is usually the headline launch at these hardware events, but Google often announces four or five other products alongside the new phone.

Last year, we saw the Pixel 2, the Chrome OS-powered Pixelbook, the Google Home Mini and Google Home Max, a new version of the Daydream View VR headset, the Google Pixel Buds, and a dead-on-arrival AI camera called “Google Clips.”

The year before saw the Pixel 1, Google Home, Chromecast Ultra, the first Daydream View, and Google Wi-Fi. Most of the leaks and rumors hint at sequels to some of these products.

Today’s Video Worth Sharing: Gooseneck Mount Work Around – If It Was a Snake It Would Have Bit Me!

By Tim

The other day I received my desk edge mounted gooseneck mouse  accessory. I did a video, posted an article here and the only open question was how to mount the smartphone with the holder being vertical and the phone being horizontal.

I did mention I was going to need to shim it somehow. While my current phone has a center positioned camera, future phones will more than likely have them to the left or right.

So I was still searching about for a good solid shim device and I spotted one from my seat here in front of the PC.

I realized that my tablet charger for either my Chuwi HiBook or Hi12 was just the right width!

So without further explanation, below you will find the video.

That is all for now, except please subscribe to our channel or click those big donation buttons on the website here!

An alarming number of sites employ privacy-invading session replay scripts

By Dan Goodin

If you have the uncomfortable sense someone is looking over your shoulder as you surf the Web, you’re not being paranoid. A new study finds hundreds of sites—including microsoft.com, adobe.com, and godaddy.com—employ scripts that record visitors’ keystrokes, mouse movements, and scrolling behavior in real time, even before the input is submitted or is later deleted.

Session replay scripts are provided by third-party analytics services that are designed to help site operators better understand how visitors interact with their Web properties and identify specific pages that are confusing or broken. As their name implies, the scripts allow the operators to re-enact individual browsing sessions. Each click, input, and scroll can be recorded and later played back.

A study published last week reported that 482 of the 50,000 most trafficked websites employ such scripts, usually with no clear disclosure. It’s not always easy to detect sites that employ such scripts. The actual number is almost certainly much higher, particularly among sites outside the top 50,000 that were studied.

Kind of makes you want to go to the sites mentioned and type nasty comments into the search boxes…after all, they shouldn’t be doing this, so they can’t complain about being offended. 🙂
