Retina Macbook Pro Can Power 4 Display

Retina Macbook Pro is really a powerhouse laptop. Tons of very good review on the performance and incredible display, this 2012 Retina Macbook Pro can really do replace your home Mac Pro or iMac. Very very good performance for such a thin and light laptop.

4 Display 15 millions of Pixel.

One issue to replace your Mac Pro or iMac is screen real estate, Retina Macbook Pro have a great looking 15 inch Screen, but to many power users it is not enough. Worry no more, this Macbook Pro can power up to 3 other display excluding its own screen. Pretty impossible for a small size laptop like it.

The MacBook Pro pictured is connected to two iMacs running at 2560×1440 over Thunderbolt, with an additional LG monitor connected over HDMI running at 1920×1200. Not only can the MacBook Pro now push nearly 15 million pixels

OWC reports that the MacBook Pro was able to play video simultaneously on all four displays without any lag. Very very cool.

Scan and create PDF via iPhone with Snap2PDF

Many a times when I’m on the move but I need to send printed documents to my clients, I can’t go back to office just for scanning. What’s my option? iPhone! It has been a integrated tool in my life, thus I will always have it around with me. There are tons of scanning documents into PDF apps in the Apple App Store, but which one is good enough? I reviewed Snap2PDF and found it to be quite good and met all my requirements.

Snap2PDF

To scan any documents, photo, bills, receipts into PDF, all I need to do is snap a picture using my iPhone camera app, of course  I can snap the photo in Scan2PDF app too.

After OCR able to recognize the text in the bill, thus searchable

What’s cool about the app is that after snapping the document, you can do image rectification to correct the size and alignment, Gamma correction to make the words easier to read and OCR ( optical Character Recognition) so all the text in the document, bills or even book will be recognized. The PDF generated will be searchable by text too. Pretty cool right? You can also email the pdf directly via the app, so you won’t have a problem getting all the pdfs out of the app.

Please take note that this image was taken at a very low light environment to test the gamma corrections.

After using Snap2PDF for a week, I find it a very handy app. It is definitely an app will that will be very useful when I need a document to be scan quickly and accurately. You can get  from the Apple App Store at $1.99, click here to go to Snap2PDF in App Store


‘iPhone 5’ Back Cover Video!

We have seen countless rumors on iPhone 5 that it will have an 4 inch screen, smaller dock port, bottom headphone jack. But finally we have seen a video of the rumored iPhone 5 back cover/case. It seems very pretty real, and even the finishing and style looks very Apple-ish.

Check out the video and determine for yourself. I really think it looks pretty good, hope we will see iPhone 5 very soon.
