Pixel 4 Astrophotography Mode Review! – [Part 1]

The other night, I got to try the Pixel 4 Astro Photography mode for the first time.  As a person who has been taking photos of stars already using manual mode on LG smartphones, the new Astro Photography mode on Pixel 4 proved to be a great way for regular Joes to be able to take photos of stars without fiddling with camera settings.  While it takes me at least 10-20 minutes to setup the manual mode on smartphone cameras to do astrophotography, Pixel 4 allows any user to take photos of stars easily simply by pressing the shutter button.


Ask Max #1 – Why Don’t You Use Apple?


I have never been fond of Apple ever since I picked up my first computer back in 1989.  Also, I am an avid supporter of open source products such as Linux, which is what Android is built on, what auto-drives Tesla, and stands for everything that Apple doesn’t.   I don’t use Apple not because of its features rather it’s philosophical for me.  I’ve always been a fan of companies that support sharing of knowledge.  This all started with IBM-compatible PCs when I got my first computer back in 1989.  As a 9 year old kid, I saw that PCs offered a slew of different brands, thus much competitive prices and back then, PCs had like 10 times more games, which I was mainly interested in.  To me, Apple was evil as no one else but Apple could make Apple computers, meaning as a consumer you are limited to imagination of Apple engineers.  On the other hand, PCs had a wide range of features and you could even build your own custom computer.  With Apple. you couldn’t and the software selection was very poor back then.


How to Get FAST Fingerprint Sensor w/ $9 Tempered Glass on Galaxy Note 10/S10 Series!

In this tutorial, I am going to show you how to get FAST fingerprint sensor with a $9 tempered glass on the Samsung Galaxy Note 10 or S10 series(Galaxy Note 10/Note 10 Plus/S10/S10 Plus).  If you don’t use this method, you will get a very slow fingerprint sensor or your your fingerprint sensor will be REALLY SLOW.   You don’t need to spend $50 on expensive WhiteStone Dome Glass, you just need to be smart and know how to cure the tempered glass with a thinner layer near the fingerprint sensor.  Follow this method and you will have a fingerprint sensor that works just as fast as when you first got your new smartphone.
