Ricoh has announced the sale of the Ricoh GR IIIx Urban Edition Special Limited Kit, which includes a special version of the GR IIIx camera and matching accessories. The camera in the kit differs from the basic model in appearance, new exposure and focus modes.

As for external differences, the main color “metallic gray” is complemented by a blue ring around the base of the lens. The set includes a leather hand strap and a metal cap for the hot shoe. According to Ricoh, the blue “was chosen to represent typical street photography images, such as the dark blue sky reflecting in a puddle after rain, or the bright neon signs of a city that never sleeps.” Gray metallic, according to the manufacturer, “reminiscent of the sandy tones” of the urban landscape.

New modes include the Snap Distance Priority mode, in which you can save the focus distance and the desired depth of field (DOF) in advance, after which the camera allows you to quickly recall these settings. If you set the focus to the hyperfocal distance, this setting is especially useful for taking quick photos.

Instead of covering the entire image field, Auto Area AF (Center) only works in nine focus areas around the center of the image field, preventing the camera from focusing on secondary elements.

The next mode allows you to make it so that when you press the shutter button halfway, only autofocus is blocked, but not metering.

In addition, a 3.5 m distance setting has been added to the Snapshot mode, and a long press on the monitor during playback allows you to instantly call up the playback function selection menu.

The manufacturer promises that the new exposure and focus modes will also appear in the base GR IIIx camera with a firmware update that will be released next month. Then the described set will also be on sale. It will cost $1099.

Alfa Bank disables outdated iPhone app from May 27

The Alfa-Bank team began to warn users of the mobile application on the iOS platform about the upcoming shutdown of outdated versions.

Alfa-Bank disables outdated iPhone app from May 27

As reported in the Alfa-Bank application, it will stop working from May 27, 2022. We are talking about application users who did not have time to upgrade to version 12.13 and higher. Now the update will no longer work, because the application has been removed from the App Store.

The explanation says the following:

Your version of the app is out of date and you can’t update it yet. Manage money in Alfa-Online – just like in the application.

According to representatives of Alfa-Bank, the notification was sent to “a small part of customers who did not have time to upgrade.” Version 12.13 and later will continue to work correctly.

Recall that the Alfa-Bank application was removed from Google Play and the App Store due to sanctions in April 2022.

Engineers came up with a way to increase the cooling

US engineers have come up with a new way to cool semiconductor products, which does not involve the use of a thermal interface. Conformal coating in laboratory conditions has demonstrated its high efficiency in comparison with traditional methods of heat removal.

Engineers came up with a way to increase the cooling efficiency of processors by 700%

Electronic devices heat up during operation, and the greater the power, the stronger the heating, all other things being equal. This problem is especially acute with the miniaturization of devices. Researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign have come up with a new efficient way to remove heat from semiconductor products.

Usually, a radiator is connected to the hottest places of the microcircuit through a thermal interface. For example, thermal paste. Instead, American scientists proposed to cover the entire device with a thin layer of polymer insulator, and “fill” it with a layer of copper on top, completely repeating the shape of the device. This conformal coating is in close contact with the device and effectively removes heat from it.

“We compared our coatings to standard heat dissipation methods. It turned out that our method dissipates 740% more power per unit volume.one of the researchers explained.

It is expected that in the future this invention will make electronic devices, including telephones and computers, more powerful and compact.

US military space intelligence to spend billions of dollars buying

The US National Space Reconnaissance Office announced the largest ever contracts worth “billions of dollars” for the purchase of satellite imagery from commercial companies. There are three such companies – BlackSky, Maxar and Planet.

“These contracts, which are valued in the billions of dollars and will run for the next 10 years, represent a historic expansion of commercial imagery purchases by the National Space Intelligence Agency.”the agency said in a statement.

The exact amount of contracts is not called. It is noted that they are concluded for five years with the possibility of an additional extension until 2032.

Huge cheap smartphone with a giant battery Tecno Pova 3

Tecno introduced the Pova 3 smartphone, which boasts a huge battery and a huge screen.

The novelty received a 6.9-inch 90-Hz IPS display with Full HD + resolution. The battery capacity is 7000 mAh. Samsung has stopped experimenting with such smartphones, so it is very, very difficult to find something like this on the market.

The heart of the novelty is the SoC MediaTek Helio G88. There are 4 or 6 GB of RAM and 64 or 128 GB of flash memory. The main camera is represented primarily by a 50-megapixel main sensor, and the other two can be left out, as these are just “plugs” with a resolution of 2 megapixels. The resolution of the front camera is 8 megapixels.

From the rest, we can note stereo speakers, a design diluted with a vertical stripe, 25-watt charging and 10-watt reverse charging. By the way, for some reason, a 33-watt charger comes with the device, so this value appears in some promotional materials, which is confusing.

In the Philippines, where the smartphone first debuted, it costs just $172.
