The Next Web: “How to shoot, edit and publish videos from your Android smartphone #android #video #filming

27 Jul

“Without meaning to stray to far into truism territory, the core raison d’être of smartphones is that they are designed for many tasks. In a single, compact device you have a mobile phone, digital camera, PC, MP3 player, video player, travel guide, supermarket and any other service you can think of that works online.

Yes, your smartphone is a jack of all trades. But is it a master of any?

“This is my first tutorial on flying RC helicopters. Please can people leave some feedback in the comments bellow, also let me know what tricks to do next. I didn’t really have much to explain about these tricks because they are fairly simple. With these tricks it’s more the nerves that are the limiting factor, and not the skill level. I’m sure a lot of people have tried these tricks on a simulator, but doing it for real, for the first time is scary.”

Nu sänks priserna för roaming inom EU

30 Jun

Kvinna som är uppkopplad på semestern

Lagom till sommarsemestern kommer här en glad nyhet för dig som tänkt semestra i Europa.
Från och med imorgon kommer det bli billigare att ringa, SMSa och surfa utomlands.

Förra året sänkte EU-kommisionen taket för mobilanvändning utomlands, sk. roaming.
Då sänktes priserna för att surfa ordentligt, och imorgon är det dags för en ny sänkning.

Här nedan ser du en jämförelse hur priset har sjunkit under de senaste åren

  1 Juli 2012 1 Juli 2013 1 Juli 2014
Ringa ett samtal (pris per minut) €0.29 €0.24 €0.19
Ta emot ett samtal (pris per minut) €0.08 €0.07 €0.05
Skicka SMS €0.09 €0.08 €0.06
Surfa (pris per MB*) €0.70 €0.45 €0.20

*Du blir debiterad per KB, om inget annat anges

Som du ser så har priset sjunkit de senaste två åren. Nu kan du t.ex surfa dubbelt så mycket jämfört med 2012.

Observera att detta är vägledande maxpriser och att din operatör kan ha en lägre prisplan än ovan.
