How to Edit Your YouTube Videos For Free! It Is Called OpenShot!

By Tim

I have mentioned this editor in a lot of my videos and it is a really good, open source video editor that runs on my tablets and on my PC in Windows 10 and of course you can use it in Linux also!

It is fairly full featured considering it is free. So I just thought I would post a quick video on it, showing you how easy it is to use.

The video below was shot on my ancient BLU Studio Energy 2 phone, which is my camera of choice and was done at 1080p. The only thing I had to really do to edit the final video was to add a transition, because the phone decided to quit recording and also a little overlay at the end asking folks to like and subscribe.

This is by no means a full tutorial, because the software has some great help pages on their website at openshot.org.

This video was edited on the Zotac in OpenShot as I wrote this post at the same time! Yeah, if you are using it on a tablet with an Atom X5-Z8300 or Z8350, you will simply have to wait for it to finish. 4 GB RAM just isn’t enough, but if you have 6-8+ GB RAM and an Apollo Lake or even a Celeron N3150 like me, this thing works great!

I do also mention the Android app I use to stitch multiple videos together seamlessly and that app is called AndoVidPro. It is inexpensive and will run just fine on older hardware like mine. So if you have a newer Android smartphone, it will be super fast fast and reliable!

That is all I have for this evening,

Tim

Sony Debuts Small Version of Digital Paper E-Ink Tablet

By Radu Iorga

Sony had an interesting device launched last year, the Sony DPT-RP2 Digital Paper tablet, which was a giant E-Ink machine with an impressive battery life. It was an A4 size device and this week it got smaller, as Sony announced the A5 version of it. The newcomer is aptly named DPT-CP1 and it keeps the bulk of the specs, but changes format.

We’re dealing with a 10.3 inch screen here with a resolution of 1404 x 1872 pixels, at 224 dots per inch. It provides 16 levels of grayscale, 16 GB of storage for PDF files and supports sharing with iOS, Android, Windows and Mac via a companion app. The thickness is crazy, at 5.9 mm and the weight is about half a pound, also not bad at all. Sony promises here about a month of usage with a single charge. That’s the real appeal of the device, making it ideal for student or office use.

This is sadly just a product meant for the Japanese market, so no luck if you want it in Europe or USA. The price is said to be “about $650”, but it may be bigger in fact. At least it’s $100 cheaper than the bigger unit. Availability starts in early June. The other model measured 13.3 inches in diagonal and had a price of around $700 or $750. The big model shipped with a stylus, but that was reported to be laggy by its testers.

Hopefully Sony fixed the bugs and before you get excited, I should mention that the pen doesn’t come with support for pressure sensitivity.

Samsung Gets Patent for Multi Folding Tablet With Physical Keyboard

By Radu Iorga

Samsung received a fresh patent this week, one that involves the usual folding tablet, but this time with a twist: a physical keyboard. We’ve seen multiple foldable devices patented by Samsung, some linked to the Samsung Galaxy X project, others not. But the keyboard is a new approach….

Sammy already has a multi fold patent under its belt ever since September 2016. This time it gets a patent for a next gen device, that folds its keyboard below the screen part, at the back side of one of the folding panels. Samsung has yet to launch a proper foldable device, even though they’ve been exploring the segment ever since the Youm prototype at CES, more than 4 years ago.

To me this looks more like a MID, a small Vaio, or something like that, not exactly a futuristic machine. You could get more use out of a tablet keyboard dock or a case with a keyboard integrated. Having a physical keyboard on a tablet, even if foldable doesn’t make much sense anymore, for ergonomical reasons, battery reasons and also for the sake of a pretty looking design.

It’s true that convertibles and detachables do have keyboards, but they aren’t the pinnacle or ergonomics or aesthetics. A touch keyboard makes more sense for foldables. Also, word through the grapevine says that Samsung is going to adopt a Snapdragon CPU on a future Windows on ARM device.

Samsung Chromebook Pro Updated With Backlit Keyboard

By Radu Iorga

Samsung just released a new version of its Chromebook Pro laptop, that has a backlit keyboard. The Chromebook Pro was one of the best Chromebooks launched in 2017 and thus Samsung felt the need to upgrade it.

The 12.3 inch 2400 x 1600 pixel display was much appreciated by buyers and reviewers, but the Core m3 wasn’t exactly top of the line processing gear. At least it was superior to an ARM solution from a Chromebook Plus. One drawback of the device was poor travel of the keys and lack of backlighting. Samsung fixed that on the new model.

Unveiled over the past weekend, the 2018 Samsung Chromebook Pro has simply been listed on the Samsung website, as the “Samsung Chromebook Pro with Backlit Keyboard”. The specs are identical compared to the 2017 model, minus the keyboard of course. We would have expected a newer CPU, maybe more than 4 GB of RAM and 32 GB of storage. The price stays $599 though…

The appeal here is that you also get a pretty capable stylus, which is stowable on the device. By the way the device has a rotatable screen (360 degrees), microSD card slot and a 39 Wh battery, which promises 9 hours of functioning.

Apple iPad (2018) Review Roundup: Great for Productivity and PUBG, Screen Gap Spoils it a Bit

By Radu Iorga

The Apple iPad (2018) reviews are in and they’re positive for sure. Well, not God of War positive, but still Apple must be pleased. This is pretty much the slate to beat right now, especially thanks to the price and productivity features. We rounded up the best and most detailed designs and we’ve summed them up below. Let’s have a look via a roundup.

The Verge – Quality, but no laptop replacement

The Verge are traditionally considered as Pro Apple folks, so they didn’t stray far from the usual praise pattern. They praise the simple fact it’s an iPad and it’s fast. I’ll admit what from what I’ve seen the device is truly fast and snappy. The Apple Pencil support goes into the Pros as well, while the lack of smart connector is a bummer. The editors see this as the logical choice, the cheaper iPad for the people, the average users.

It doesn’t even want to be a laptop replacement apparently, unlike the iPad Pro. The thing you’re going to miss the most here is the lack of the ability to run 3 apps at once like the Pro does. The screen is praised, as is the waistline.

CNET – praise for work features

CNET also gave the product praise, for its faster A10 CPU and the use of the Apple Pencil for work and annotation. iOS remains king of app selection on tablets, hands down. The problem is that people may want a bigger and better screen, plus quad speakers, since we’ve been spoiled by the iPad Pros. They also remind people that also buying a Pencil, case and keyboard will bring you closer to laptop pricing levels. Food for thought…

The editors praise the integration of the Pencil experience into the iWork suite. They also say that games run great, the apps will load fast and the battery life even beat expectations. LTE speeds are also improved, it seems. One of the drawbacks is that the Apple Pencil is not exactly kid friendly, having a rear cap that get lost easily.

Engadget – Great price, great Pencil support

Engadget sees this as the best tablet at the $329 price tag and praised its great performance and Apple Pencil support. The many tablet apps are also a big plus, but the design is seen as “getting old” by this review. The thickness is also a downer, compared to the other iPads. The return of the gap between the Retina Display and the glass that covers it may annoy some people, accustomed to the newest format.

Engadget actually played some solid PUBG Mobile sessions on the tablet and came up satisfied with the way it ran, even with the graphics tuned all the way up. Fortnite also ran fine and the multiple apps running side by side provided solid multitasking. As far as the stylus goes, the experience is very similar to the $650 iPad Pro 10.5 one with pencil, but the screen gap kind of changes it.

Ars Technica –  Some compromises, especially the screen

Ars Technica takes a more cautious approach and asks just how creative the device is. They also bring up the screen gap and the way it influences Apple Pencil interaction. The design is the same as the cheap iPad from last year and it’s really getting dated. Bezels are also considered a bummer now. The screen isn’t laminated in the same way as the iPad Pro, which is a bummer.

Also, if you’re coming from the iPad Pro you may find the screen being too small. The camera is considered forgettable basically and the benchmarks are good enough to compete with the first iPad Pro or even beat it. In some tests it’s even close to the iPhone X.

Techradar  – Going into detail, loving the screen

Techradar considers this device a great tablet for people who want a basic tablet and to serve that basic purpose. They praise the screen, CPU power and price, but the design and extra priced Apple Pencil gets some backlash. They seem happy with the way to express artistry through the pen and you can also do quite a bit of work via the Notes app. The multi level pressure of the Pencil si very useful and put to work properly on this device, even though not on iPad Pro level.

2 GB of RAM may feel like too little, but it’s enough for drawing, PUBG, email and some educational apps. Techradar praised low screen reflectance, nice contrast, but the gap and bezels kill the mood a little.

In the end I feel that the latest iPad is just Apple being Apple. Some incremental updates, much of the package from last year, a newer CPU and a gimmick: the stylus. They cut some corners here and there, but hey, you can dissect frogs virtually and schools will buy this in bulk, so sales are going to go crazy.
