Xolo Q700. Is Speed Everything?

Quad-core Xolo Q700 was tested to see how well the camera fares in terms of image quality.

Lava International is one phone manufacturer that has been offering quad core processor smartphones under and around the price range of Rs. 10,000. The company’s latest launch is Xolo Q700 with a 1.2 GHz processor. Let’s look at what the phone has to offer at it’s affordable price.

Features in Hand

The Xolo Q700 features a 5 MP camera that allows manual control in terms of adjusting White Balance, ISO (100-1600) and Exposure Compensation. But then, one has to tap three times into

Winds at twice the speed of sound

We’ve all got stuck out in or witnessed very strong winds here on Earth, from gusts that turn your umbrella inside out to tornadoes that rip up everything in their path. You might think these winds are a force to be reckoned with, but unless you’ve had a day floating around the gaseous atmosphere of ice giant Neptune you haven’t seen anything yet!

You might think that Neptune’s distance from the Sun, which creates temperatures as low as -218 degrees Celsius (-360 degrees Fahrenheit), would mean a world frozen solid by the subzero climate with not much going on in

Variable Speed Multi-Output Running Mode LED Display

The circuit is a transistor transistor-logic (TTL) compatible running light display with a maximum of 15 outputs and is capable of driving up to 751 LEDs for display. The circuitry employs TTL devices and ICs. Power dissipation of the logic circuit is in milliwatts.

The circuit is based on digital logic having 4 inputs (hexadecimal) and 15 outputs which drive the output transistors. This logic circuit consists of six ICs — three quad 2-input OR gates and three quad 2-input AND. gates.

If A, B, C and D arc the inputs to this logic circuit and Y1, Y2, Y3 Y15

Triumph Speed Tripler

I’m stacking on the miles. That’s because 1) I love riding this motorcycle, and 2) I’ve had a few assignments outside Los Angeles County that I opted to ride to. Before I could shove off on my first overnight trip, I needed to reinstall my Ventura luggage system. Fine, except the L-brackets—the structural pieces that bolt to the bike’s subframe and support the rack and Mistral pack—were bent in the crash. No problem, because Ventura (www.ventura-mca. com) sells components individually, allowing me to order up new L-brackets for $174.

Back with my rack and pack, I realized something that may

Switzerlands FSK 17

Peter Haclerode reports on Switzerland’s rarely seen, but highly efficient, airborne Special Forces – FSK 17.

DESPITE IT’S LONG-MAINTAINED policy of neutrality, Switzerland has always considered defence to be a high priority. The Swiss armed forces maintain a high degree of professionalism and are extremely well armed and equipped — and yet national servicemen have only 17 weeks basic training to their credit, topped up by a 19-day refresher course every two years.

However, the Swiss armed forces also include a small, but highly trained, special forces element, the Fernspah Kompanie 17.

In 1968, the Swiss decided that its army

SPORT ACTION

WHETHER IT’STHE THRILLS AND SPILLS OF MOTORSPORT, YOUR KIDS RACING AROUND THE PARK ON THEIR BIKE OR THE DOG JUMPING FOR STICKS, ACTION PHOTOGRAPHY IS BOTH CHALLENGING AND EXCITING. IT’S ALSO ONE OF THE TRICKIEST PHOTOGRAPHIC DISCIPLINES THAT WILL TEST YOU AND YOUR EQUIPMENT TO THE LIMIT, BUT IF YOU STICK WITH IT AND MASTER THE BASIC SKILLS REQUIRED GREAT IMAGES WILL RESULT. TIMING IS THE KEY TO SUCCESS. OFTEN OPPORTUNITIES ONLY LAST FOR A FRACTION OF A SECOND BEFORE THE MOMENT IS LOST, BUT IN THAT TIME YOU HAVE TO MAKE NUMEROUS DECISIONS- ABOUT FOCUSING, EXPOSURE AND COMPOSITION, AS

Speed up your editing workflow.

We unveil tips and tricks for speeding up common photo editing tasks over multiple platforms.

What is an Action?

An Action is an automated series of edits applied to an image. When you add photo effects in Elements, you are essentially running an Action. There is a dedicated panel found in Window>Actions.

Use built-in options.

This is the Actions panel, where you will find some built-in Actions. These are categorised by what they do: some have practical applications and some have more fun effects. Click on the folders to see them.

Run an Action.

To see what an Action does,

Seeing is believing

Whereas the First World War at sea is best remembered for the actions of the larger warships, a large proportion of the everyday duties of the Royal Navy was performed by smaller motor launches. An example of this is the actions of ML 357 which attacked three German submarines in the final months of 1917. These attacks formed the contents of a letter, revealed by Rick Mayall, which was written by the commander of the motor launch in January 1918.

On 9 April 1915, the British Admiralty placed an order througn Canadian Vickers for fifty anti-submarine boats to be built

Second Generation Jets — The Need for Speed

In warfare, time is always a paramount consideration. The general rule appears to be if you can operate at tempos above that of your enemy, you gain and hold the initiative.

In the Second World War time was critical as it gave the defenders the opportunity to climb to a suitable altitude from which to gain speed and engage the enemy. However; as jet fighters started to evolve, tactics became driven more by the closing speeds between an air defender and an incoming threat.

If the enemy aircraft was thought to be carrying a nuclear warhead, it became even more

RECORD FEST 53 — The Year for Speed

Deep in what the early Spanish settlers called the Colorado Desert, 150 miles east of Los Angeles, the Salton Sea is like nowhere else on Earth.

For one thing it’s not a sea but a lake, the largest in California. It’s 220ft below sea level and so hot that the temperature can top 115 degrees. And sometimes it’s a sea without water as random river flows transform it into a dry desert basin.

Today the guidebooks call the Salton Sea «a crown jewel of avian biodiversity» but 60 years ago it was the scene of quite another form of aerial
