    A few tips for getting the most out of your iPhone 11 camera – BGR - December 26, 2019 by admin

    After a few years of arguably incremental upgrades, Apples iPhone 11 lineup was a breath of fresh air. Aside from boosting battery life significantly, Apple made some serious improvements to camera quality across the board. Night mode in particular is an absolute game-changer as it delivers low light photography performance that surpasses what youll find on Googles Pixel devices and even the Huawei P30 Pro.

    Of course, if you want the best that Apple has to offer photography wise, youll want to consider the companys iPhone 11 Pro models which both feature a triple lens camera scheme. And while its certainly easy to take stunning and crisp photos right out of the box, there are some tweaks you can implement here and there to help take your photos to the next level.

    Writing for the USA Today, Jefferson Graham spoke to a handful of professional photographers and asked them for a few simple but effective tips that can vastly improve iPhone photos. Whether youre a seasoned photography guru or a newbie looking to learn the ropes, there are a few tidbits here well worth checking out.

    With respect to taking Portrait mode photos, for example, Matt Van Swol notes:

    Create distance. The more physical distance between your subject and the background, the more separation your iPhone can create for you. Portrait mode creates depth by mimicking the depth of field that youd get on pro-level camera.

    One tidbit not in the article but worth mentioning involves taking selfies. By default, your iPhone will take a 7-megapixel selfie in portrait mode if you just open up the camera and hit the shutter button. However, if you want to take full advantage of the iPhones 12-megapixel front-facing camera, tap the expand button (symbolized by the two-arrow icon) and youll be able to take a slightly higher quality photo. Incidentally, if you take a selfie in landscape mode, the default photo will be 12 megapixels.

    One final tidbit worth mentioning if only because Ive been surprised by how many friends arent aware of this is that you can take high quality photos while video recording simply by tapping the white button on the right-hand side of the display while a video recording is in progress.

    For the love of suds: Cleaning business of 20 years sells – Morning Bulletin - December 5, 2019 by admin

    WHILE some young boys dream of growing up to become an astronaut, a football player or a cowboy, Edward Greany wanted nothing more than to own a dry cleaners an unusual dream, he will admit, but one that had stolen his heart.

    A passion for cleaning and quality service followed Mr Greany, 68, throughout his life, and after 20 years owning and running Rockhamptons Jet Dry Cleaners, he and his wife Rita, 65, have now decided to sell up, with a prominent local figure taking over.

    (They) had just had dry cleaning done and Rita approached (them) about buying the dry cleaners, Mr Greany said.

    One day, (they) called and she put in an offer, which Rita accepted.

    After suffering with ill health over the past few years, and suffering a small heart attack in March, Mr Greany and his wife decided it was time to retire and start travelling Grey Nomad style.

    With grandchildren around Central Queensland, Brisbane and Mackay, and their first great grandchild on the way, the time was right to hit the road in their caravan.

    The couple will also head to Fiji for Christmas, Western Australian in February and New Zealand for a cruise in April.

    We finished up on October 31, which for me finished about 40 years of being self-employed, Mr Greany said.

    Were very relieved and relaxed.

    The business has been with the family through highs and lows, including Cyclone Marcia in 2015, when the couple ran the business out of their home with a generator.

    Some of their customers includes emergency services, namely police officers.

    Mr Greany started his working life at Jets in 1968, and fell in love with dry cleaning.

    It may sound strange but thats the way it happened, he said.

    I left and ran Jackos Cakes and Pies, visiting Bajool, Mount Morgan, Rockhampton, Raglan, Marmor, Bouldercombe and Yeppoon, in the early 70s in the back of a panel van.

    Then we had a couple of milk runs around Rockhampton and the dry cleaners came up for sale.

    It was a bit of a childhood dream. All the equipment was pretty old so we got in there, upgraded the equipment, made money and then sold it after five kids we didnt have enough time.

    After a stint in carpet cleaning, and then commercial cleaning for 11-and-a-half-years, the dry cleaners came back on the market.

    It had been a big part of my life. I had worked in a couple of laundries and gained a fair bit of knowledge but with dry cleaning there has been a lot of trial and error I was self-taught, Mr Greany said.

    Ive loved every minute of it. Its our baby.

    Clean your carpets, and donate to help the hungry – ABC 4 - November 24, 2019 by admin

    Posted: Nov 18, 2019 / 04:30 PM MST / Updated: Nov 18, 2019 / 04:54 PM MST

    SALT LAKE CITY, Utah (ABC4Utah) Zerorez is now offering carpet cleaning for $33 per room. Plus, if you donate food when Zerorez comes to clean, you get the fourth room free. If you deliver a bag of food to the Draper office you will receive a $50 certificate.

    Not having your carpets vacuumed and cleaned professionally wears down its life faster. A common myth is that you should not be cleaning your carpets earlier in its life.

    Pieces of carpet get worn down by dirt and debris from underneath. When walked upon with dirt and debris underneath, carpets rubs against the debris and get worn away.

    Another myth is if you clean carpet more often it will get dirtier faster. That may be the case if you are cleaning with soaps and detergents which are hard to remove.

    Unlike their competitors, Zerorez doesnt use soap to clean, but rather what they call Powered Water. The water is run through an electrolysis process, altering the molecule. It is slick to the touch and has all the cleaning properties of soap, but none of the side effects. This makes it easy to rinse out unlike soap and doesnt leave the sticky residue in carpet. Powered Water eliminates the need for soap and dries just like water. It leaves nothing behind.

    Call (801) 288-9376 or visit ZerorezSaltLake.com or ZerorezDavisWeber.com to schedule a cleaning.

    SoftBank Is Selling a Roomba Competitor in the U.S. – Bloomberg - November 24, 2019 by admin

    A Whiz autonomous floor-cleaning machine operates during a demonstration.

    SoftBank Group Corp. has put billions of dollars into a laser-based technology that could allow cars to drive themselvesand help astronauts land on distant planets. It turns out that same technologymakes a pretty good vacuum cleaner.

    Engineers at SoftBank Robotics have spent years applying lidar, which accurately maps distances in real-time, to carpet cleaning.The result is Whiz, a sort of ultra-high-end Roomba that SoftBank will start selling to companies in the U.S. on Tuesday for $499 a month.

    Whiz.

    Photographer: Tomohiro Ohsumi/Bloomberg

    Given the high price, offices are the target market. The robot can run for three hours on a charge and clean as much as 15,000 square feet, according to the company.In the cleaning industry, theres been a lot of excitement about this, said Kass Dawson, head of business strategy at SoftBank Robotics America.

    SoftBank is most commonly associated with its mobile network in Japan and the massive amounts of cash its investing in tech companies around the worldsometimes unwisely, as in the case of WeWork. But robotics has long been an interestof SoftBank founder Masayoshi Son. The Japanese conglomerate introduced a humanoid named Pepper five years ago that can be found at airports and stores attempting to answercustomers questions.Although Pepper can move on wheels, it typically stays in placeand lacks the sophistication of Whizs movement. When Pepper debuted, according to Dawson, people frequently asked if it could vacuum. It cant.

    Another SoftBank robot called Nao is focused on education.The company wants to gradually refine its robotics chops as it works toward more complicated tasks, such as in logistics and warehousing.The eventual goal is to freeup human workers to focus on more complicated work, Dawson said. We need to do some researchand figure out which is the right repeatable task to be replaced, he said.

    But its up to people to train their eventual robot replacement. Whiz needs to be taught the cleaning route before it can get started. After that, the vacuum can learn to account for changes in the layout, such as furniture moved into new positions. The project has benefitedfrom SoftBanks wide array of investments. Whizs operating system, BrainOS, is made by a company called Brain Corp., which is backed by SoftBanks Vision Fund.

    Before it's here, it's on the Bloomberg Terminal.
