What’s the News From the First Android 4.4 TV BOX

S82 Amlogic S802 Quad Core up to 2.0GHz (Cortex-A9) Android TV BOX. The S82 TV BOX with 16GB flash and built-in antenna for WIFI/Bluetooth. I’ll start by giving my first impressions, going through the user interface and settings.

S82 comes with an IR remote, but the two required AAA batteries are not included, so you’ll need to purchase some separately. As we’ll soon see the user interface has been designed to be used easily with an IR remote, but once you start using Android apps, you’ll probably want to use another input device. So I’ve also used air mouse during testing. I’ve connected an Ethernet cable, the HDMI and AV cables. The user interface shown below.

There are also six main menus: Online Video (YouTube, Netflix, and XBMC), My recommend (favorite apps), Setting, My Apps (all installed apps), Music, and Local. The last two are some apps to access/play local files with a not-so-slick interface that you are unlikely to use. There are smaller icons at the bottom. You can add and remove the ones you want as you wish

The “Setting” menu gives you access to the settings shown in the same Metro-style with four sub menus: Network, Display, Advanced and Other.

When you first boot the device, there’s no network at all, so you need to go to the Network settings, and select whether Ethernet or Wi-Fi, and both are working just fine.

In the display settings, it will detect the maximum resolution for your TV, 1080p60 in my case, and it’s supposed to support UHD / 4K output, but I don’t own a 4K TV to check this out. Other options allow you to hide or show the status bar; adjust the display position/size, and whether you want to use a screensaver.

The Advanced menu will let you start Miracast (Source only, not a display), enable the software Remote control, set your location (unfortunately only Chinese cities are available), set the screen orientation, and select digital audio output (PCM, SPDIF pass-through, HDMI pass-through).

The Other button will give some details about the Android version (4.4.2), kernel version (3.10.10) and provides access to OTA System Update, which is not enabled.

I started with the videos from samplemedia.linaro.org, and I added some Big Buck Bunny videos with H.265/HEVC codec from another source (Elecard):

H.264 codec / MP4 container (Big Buck Bunny), 480p/720p/1080p – OK

MPEG2 codec / MPG container, 480p/720p/1080p – OK.

MPEG4 codec, AVI container 480p/720p/1080p – OK

VC1 codec (WMV), 480p/720p/1080p – OK

Real Media (RMVB) – Failed. Only shows “Click OK when playback has ended”.

WebM / VP8 – 480p/720p OK, 1080p is very choppy. Most probably software decode.

H.265 codec / MPEG TS container, 360p/720p/1080p

XBMC – Audio only

MX Player – Can play and audio works, but everything is in slow motion with many frames skipped. The number of frame skips does not seem to be related to the resolution.

The Wi-Fi test consists in transferring a 278 MB files between a SAMBA share and the internal flash, and vice versa. The first time I tried the transfer speed was catastrophic, sometimes running at up to 2MB/s, but most of the time hovering around 50KB/s, and in some cases even stalling, with the transfer taking 11 minutes and 30 seconds. I went outside, and came back 2 hours later, to repeat the test, and I was unable to reproduce the problem I had during the first test, so I discarded it, but this may be something to keep in mind. The transfer times averaged a decent 2:35 (1.79 MB/s), which bring Vega S89 in the upper middle of the field, with performance similar to MK908.

How to Treat Those Cameras without Screen?

MD80 Mini sport DV, it completely don’t know how this little thing to work. Just 3 buttons, actually the manual tells me to control it. This DV has indicators, different color lights from indicators will remind you what the mode is now. Blue, green, red, orange, these combinations create “Video Recording”, “Photograph”, “Voice Recording”.

2.0 mega pixel CMOS, 62°visual angle, we can view its photographing quality

Are there any ways we can fit screens for these camera. The answer is “Yes”. But we don’t mean the real screen. We use the wireless connection function – WiFi. Now more and more sport cameras have built-in WiFi function to connect mobile devices. I have to say it’s a very good idea. We connect the cameras through our mobile devices, and then we can control cameras about their video or photo. All you need are just WiFi Sport DV and your mobile devices.

How about their waterproofness? Just like GoPro, adapt to the water environment. The waterproof case can help it. Next product, it’ll take us to experience the real water scenes through its lens.

And with other mount accessories, you will realize the surfing recording or racing recording.

How to Apply Face Mask Correctly

Who does not dream of a healthy skin? A healthy skin gives you confidence and helps establish a good interpersonal relationship. Face masks play a very important role in maintaining a healthy and glowing skin. Applying face mask at least once a week can moisturize the skin and help to minimize the occurrence of acnes and blackheads and makes your skin look smooth, clean and radiant. For the correct results there are 8 Tips on how to apply face mask correctly.

1、  Prepare to make the least amount of mess possible. Wear clothing you don’t mind getting messy. Apply the mask in the bathroom so that any mess can be cleaned up easily. Use hair clips or a hair band to keep hair away from the face.

2、  Read the instructions. Make sure you thoroughly read the individual instructions of each mask. Some need to be put on dry skin, some on wet. Some take 10 minutes, some take 30. Follow the instructions as they are written.

3、  Do a test spot. Especially if you have sensitive skin, it’s a good idea to do a test spot before covering your whole face. Choose a spot on your arm or a small spot along your jaw line and follow the instructions. If no reaction occurs within a couple hours, you’ll be fine.

4、  Wash the face and neck with a cleanser as any makeup, dirt, and oil can prevent getting all the benefits the mask was intended for. Exfoliating your skin to make sure dead skin cells aren’t in the way.

5、  Open your pores. Try steaming your face a bit before applying the mask. If you take a hot shower before you do it, the work is done for you. Otherwise, boil some water and hold your face over the pot for a couple minutes. Dry your face completely.

6、  Apply evenly. Make sure you’re applying evenly and generously with the mask. You want to make sure your entire face gets equal attention and all the benefits can be had from the mask.

7、  Leave on for the right amount of time. Most masks need a certain amount of time for skin to absorb the benefits from the cream. That said, they also really don’t need much more time than that. There is almost no benefit from leaving masks on longer than the recommended time.

8、  Pat dry. Rinse with lukewarm water (or do whatever the instructions tell you to do) and then cover your face with a cold towel to close your pores. Don’t rub at your skin. You’ll irritate it. Let your skin breathe. Wait at least 10 minutes before applying any spot treatments or moisturizers.

4 Tips to Protect Your Mechanical Watch

Few days ago, I bought a woman mechanical watch for myself. I really love this type of technology.

Watches need to be protected well, especially for mechanical watches. This type of watch is expensive and it needs to be checked more so it could worked more accurate and longer.

I have been studying skills for a while. There are some tips for those who love mechanical technology.

1.Try to keep your watch from where there is water. Watches are afraid of water all the time even though they are waterproof. On the other hand, once your watch has been worn for several hours, sweat from your hands may corrode it more or less. In this case, you ought to check frequently whether the watch is dry or damp. Once it gets moist, use a piece of soft cloth to wipe it gently till it’s dry.

2. Don’t throw the packing box or watch container away randomly as they are the best place to store your luxury watch, especially when it is unused for a long time. Most people are used to placing their watches everywhere. But they don’t know this is quite dangerous for their beloved watches. Watches should be placed away from electrical appliances lest they be magnetized and can’t work accurately.

3. Don’t always rely on the repair shops. In fact, as long as you apply your hands more often, the watch can live longer. For instance, you should wind it regularly to support its normal work. However, be mindful that open its back case too frequent. The dust would be in there.

4. Having been worn for several years, the case of your watch may get scratched. In this case, just give two drops of water and a bit of toothpaste on its face, then rub the face gently till it’s almost new to look.

Those are tips I concluded. I hope that could help to keep your mechanical watch working longer. I know that not many women would love it so much, but those tips are also useful to men mechanical watches.

Finally, I welcome all fans of mechanical technology to communicate with me!
