Wireless World Of Ramsey

"For All Your Wireless Needs"

Welcome to my website

  Located at 88 East Main Street, in lovely downtown Ramsey, New Jersey is an authorized Dealer for AT&T Wireless Services. They have been in the wireless business since 1999; but their cumulative wireless experience totals over 40 years. This type of experience can only benefit their customer base. Since day # 1, the owner and staff have tried to steer clear of the stereotypical wireless dealership mentality. It has been their goal to be more of a consultant; than a salesperson. They treat “word of mouth” or “referral” business as their driving force.

The Handbrake video encoding software has received an update, jumping to version 0.10. With the new software version, the makers of Handbrake are bringing a few notable new features as well as some under the hood improvements, such as new encoders, filters, and scalers along with bug fixes:

Here are some of the new encoders that are introduced:

  • Intel QuickSync Video is a hardware based H.264 encoder that is available on Intel CPUs. Currently, QSV is only supported on Windows but we hope to bring this to Linux users in the future. Thanks to the good people at Intel for making this possible!

  • H.265 is now available through x265 1.4. While this encoder is still fairly new, we have seen some promising results come out of it. It’s still under heavy active development and is only going to improve over time!

  • VP8 using the libvpx encoder. We have now deprecated Theora (VP3) in favour of VP8 which is a more modern encoder offering better quality encodes at lower file sizes.

  • LibFaac: Has now officially been removed due to GPL compatibility issues, and replaced with the libav AAC encoder as the new default for Windows and Linux. In addition, we have added the FDK AAC encoder for Windows and Linux as a optional compile-time option. The Mac release will continue to use CoreAudio as the default.

  • As usual, we’ve updated a number of the core libraries including x264 and libav

There are some new filters and scalers added as well. Of note, though, is that OpenCL scaling has been introduced, but according to @donmelton on Twitter, you may not want to use that feature:

  • Denoise: The new NLMeans filter offers much higher quality denoising. Our previous filter, hqdn3d, now accepts individual settings for each of the chroma channels (Cb, Cr).

  • OpenCL Scaling: In addition to the default Lanczos scaling algorithm, HandBrake now offers BiCubic scaling on Windows via OpenCL. If the results prove positive, we may roll it out to other platforms in a future release. Thanks to the guys at AMD for building our OpenCL framework!

The developers have also made some changes to the GUI as well:

  • Feature Parity: A lot of work has been done to bring the user interfaces closer in terms of feature parity. We are now much closer than in any previous release.

  • Audio and Subtitle Defaults: The audio and subtitle controls have been overhauled to support default behaviours which can be stored in presets. This simplifies the workflow for many batch encoding scenarios.

There are also a number of other changes as well in the release notes.

iCloud Photo Sharing not only lets you share Photo Streams with other iPhone and iPad owners, but also gives you a way to share a batch of photos with virtually anyone through Once you choose to share your photos on iCloud, you’ll be given a link, send it on to whomever you like, and they can view them with any browser on any computer they like.

How to share a Photo Stream with people not using an iPhone, iPad, or Mac

  1. Launch the Photos app on your iPhone or iPad.
  2. Tap on the Shared tab in the bottom navigation.
  3. Tap on Sharing at the top to return to all your streams, since iCloud Photo Sharing launches to the activity section by default.
  4. Tap on the stream you’d like to create a link for.
  5. Tap on People in the bottom.
  6. Turn On the option for Public Website.
  7. Tap the Share Link button when it appears and share the link however you’d like.

Keep in mind anyone you share the link with can also turn around and share it with anyone else. In other words, treat it as public and don’t put anything there you wouldn’t want found.

Earlier this week the CEO of an anti-virus company wrote a “guest editorial” on a popular technology website, saying it was time for Apple to “open up” and — wait for it — allow anti-virus software on the iPhone and iPad. The premise is self-serving and the headline spit-take inducing, and it’s absolutely not worth rewarding negative attention seeking with attention. However, it is important to address the fear, uncertainty, and doubt (FUD) the “guest editorial” is trying to spread.

The CEO starts off by bringing up a Xsser as an example of why we should be concerned about the security of iOS. Xsser is a type of spyware that can steal data from iPhones and iPads — if the owner first jailbreaks them and then downloads something like an infected Debian package.

The CEO chooses not to mention that and, even though it’s immediately mentioned in the comment, the “guest editorial” hasn’t been updated to correct the omission.

Next, the CEO claims that BYOD, the bring-your-own-device trend that’s helped the iPhone and iPad gain a growing presence in enterprise, will turn into a disaster because Apple won’t give “security professionals” the cooperation and system-level access they need to protect our devices.

iOS is already so well protected, however, that exploits typically require explicit user overrides — jailbreak, the downloading of pirated apps, the acceptance of untrusted certificates — to get any access to our data at all.

Just like Xsser can only infect a jailbroken device, the type of system-level access the CEO is asking for under the guise of “openness” would only make us more vulnerable to malware, not less.

If security were the real agenda here, the CEO would ask for Apple to increase their own, already impressive anti-malware efforts on iOS. That way we’d get all the benefits but none of the risks.

Instead, the agenda here appears to be spreading misinformation in a deliberate attempt to make both direct customers and IT departments afraid so, presumably, Apple somehow feel pressured to change.

Well, Apple won’t. They’re smarter than that, and we are too. We know that misinformation is simply another form of malware. Just like we know this “guest editorial” isn’t trying to protect us, it’s trying to exploit us.

Dell is now shipping its $ 2,500 UltraSharp 27 Ultra HD 5K Monitor through its online store. The display sports the same 5120 X 2880-pixel Ultra HD resolution that we saw on Apple’s recent iMac with Retina 5K. Interestingly enough, Dell is pricing its monitor-only solution at the same price as Apple’s all-in-one, which includes a full computer running OS X Yosemite.

The Dell display comes with Dell’s PremierColor tech to have 99 percent color accuracy with Adobe RGB and 100 percent accuracy with sRGB coverage. It also has two integrated speakers with Harman Kardon sound quality.

In terms of connectivity, the display features 1 Mini DisplayPort, 2 DisplayPort, 5 USB 3.0 ports, 1 USB port, and an integrated card reader. At this time, it’s unclear if the Dell UltraSharp 27 Ultra HD 5K monitor will work with Apple’s products, including the Mac Pro. If it does, it would allow you to have a more powerful computer than what’s delivered inside the iMac, but add the same high resolution display as the iMac with Retina 5K.

For more coverage about Dell’s solution, you can visit our sister site Windows Central. And if you’re on the fence about Apple’s iMac with Retina 5K, be sure to read our review here at iMore.

iWork for iCloud has received some noteable updates recently, including more languages, fonts, and better document editing. Apple’s cloud-based document editor features eight new languages, with French, German, Spanish, Brazilian Portuguese, Chinese, Arabic, Japanese, and Hebrew added to the mix. Apple has also added 50 new fonts, including fonts for some of these new languages.

There are other changes that make editing documents easier. Documents now have a new toolbar which lets you more easily edit the name. Pages will also now let you undo deletions of section breaks when editing a document. Pages and Numbers will both also let you drag wedges from pie charts and move and resize chart legends.

Plex Home has arrived to deliver new features allowing users to have better control over sharing and their media in a multi-member family household. Users can choose who they want to share their media content with and create separate user profiles for different members of their family in Plex Home. This is enabled as Plex has moved the server management to the web app.

So we set out to make Plex a better place for families with fine-grained access controls by moving all the server management inside the web app, and allowing you to easily specify the exact content ratings accessible by all your friends and family.

Additionally, with more control over sharing, you can share albums or selected songs with specified members.

Another really important part of being in a home with multiple family members is that creating accounts should be really easy, especially for the younger ones in your household, who may not even have an email address of their own yet. So we’ve added managed users, which are incredibly simple to create, and don’t require a unique username, email address, or password.

There’s also fast switching between different user accounts and you can set up PINs as well to protect the accounts.

Lastly, Plex is opening up its Plex Pass so everyone in your Plex Home will have access to it, not just the main Plex Pass account holder.

To experience Plex Home, be sure to download the latest version of the Media Server for OS X. Then, use one of the apps with Plex Home support to stream to your connected TV. Plex will be updating the rest of its apps soon.

After failing to lock down a lead actor, Aaron Sorkin’s upcoming Steve Jobs biopic may now be changing studios. Deadline reported that the movie is heading to Universal from Sony Pictures, with a deal set to finalize as early as Thursday evening. According to Deadline’s Mike Fleming Jr:

I’m hearing very strongly that Universal is indeed locking down the Jobs project and essentially giving it a green light. This should be closed by tomorrow latest. That means the project shouldn’t lose any momentum despite the studio move. Will provide more details when I get them.

Reasons for Sony’s decision to put the film in turnaround are not yet clear, with the studio failing to provide an official comment on the matter. The screenplay for the biopic is based on Walter Isaacson’s biography of Steve Jobs, and will be directed by Danny Boyle. Christian Bale was originally cast to be the lead, but the actor reportedly pulled out after stating that he was unsure he was a right fit for the role. Michael Fassbender is said to be the latest actor being considered to play Jobs.

It seems that there’s more news in the never ending story of GT Advanced today. The latest sees the sapphire manufacturer’s creditors calling for an extension concerning a settlement hearing that could potentially see GT Advanced paying Apple $ 439 million as it sells off its sapphire furnaces, Reuters reported today.

The creditors submitted their complaint in a court filing on Tuesday claiming that GT Advanced may have gotten the short end of the stick in its settlement with Apple, saying that “extraordinary allegations against Apple … call into question the adequacy of the settlement agreement.”

The creditors requested the delay to further investigate internal records from Apple and GT Advanced in order to decide whether or not Apple should carry more responsibility for the plant’s bankruptcy.

According to Reuters, GT Advanced is opposed to the extension as it could potentially “hurt its ability to reorganize and repay its creditors.”

Have you ever felt like searching through tweets you published years ago? Now you can using Twitter‘s search engine. Searches on the social network were previously limited to just a week before tweets were removed from the index (but still viewable by other means – direct links, profile timelines, etc). Twitter has worked on rolling out a new search engine that not only keeps up with the plethora of tweets being beamed to the service on a daily basis, but also enable users to search through those vintage messages.

“Our search engine excelled at surfacing breaking news and events in real time, and our search index infrastructure reflected this strong emphasis on recency. But our long-standing goal has been to let people search through every Tweet ever published.”

For the time being the Twitter search is restricted by just a few keyword terms, but the company aims to improve the experience by adding more complex queries. It was generally the case for Twitter to stand back and allow third-party developers to swoop in with more advanced functionality, but the company and its rather small team of engineers have been soldiering on to offer a native experience, one that’s available both on the web and on official mobile apps.

When one considers the scope of the project, it’s quite the achievement. The team needed to find a way to merge the index with literally millions of new entries each and every second. Also, SSDs are now used for storage over saving tweets in main memory for speedy, and more expensive access. Give it a try yourself the next time you visit or fire up one of the official apps (currently works on iOS and Android). Be sure to read up on some handy queries to help you out with your in-app searching.

Apple has found itself on the losing end of a patent lawsuit and has been ordered to pay $ 23.6 million to Mobile Telecommunications Technologies, which claimed that Apple infringed on pager technology patents that were first developed in the 1990s by Skytel.

Bloomberg reports that a federal jury in Marshall, Texas agreed late on Monday that Apple had used those SkyTel patents without the permission of their current owners. MTel claimed that Apple used their technology in their iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch and Airport products. MTel was originally asking for $ 237.2 million in damages.

During the trial, lawyers for Apple denied the company was infringing on the patents. They also tried to claim the patents were invalid because the company felt they didn’t offer anything new when they were first issued. An Apple spokesperson would not comment on Monday’s jury verdict.
