How to get the best performance on Dual Displays from your Thunderbolt 3 MacBook Pro or Windows Laptop

How to get the best performance on Dual Displays from your Thunderbolt 3 MacBook Pro or Windows Laptop

What makes one dual display solution better than another? What’s the difference between the cheap USB-C to HDMI adapters and the expensive ones if they both output the same resolution? Prepare for a deep dive in to Thunderbolt 3 when we review OWC’s Thunderbolt 3 to dual HDMI or Display Port adapters.

Eventually, we conclude that greater efficiency between computers and displays mean more system resources dedicated to your tasks and less overhead wasted by substandard methods of conversion.

Net Neutrality will take a lifetime to defend.

Net Neutrality will take a lifetime to defend.

By now, you've seen the headlines trumpeting the Internet's collective voice being heard as the FCC adopted the re-classification of Internet Service as a Title II common carrier, much like phone companies are now.  This is the very beginning of what will be a lifelong struggle for fans of a free and open Internet.  While we most wholeheartedly agree that the net, while being unregulated, has grown nicely, it goes without saying that Internet access in the United States is both slower and more expensive than much of the world.

An open letter to Steve Gibson & Security Now's Audience

 Listening to Security Now and hearing about the painstaking detail you approach every project with has inspired me to make my first app something unique.  There's a big difference between good and  great, especially when it comes to writing and designing a program!

Listening to Security Now and hearing about the painstaking detail you approach every project with has inspired me to make my first app something unique.  There's a big difference between good and great, especially when it comes to writing and designing a program!

Steve,

My attempt to simplify some of the confusion around drones & security came from Security Now… And inspired me to create something neat.

This year, I was invited to NAB to present with a friend on the topic of drones in journalism. The presentation was a wild success, and, on the drive back to Albuquerque, my friend and I discussed some of the major pitfalls people who use drones to shoot aerial footage would likely face over the next year. 

By the time the drive was over, Legal Flyer was clearly wire-framed in my head. Now, I just had to take the code plunge. 

It turns out just as a photographer needs a model release from the model, so does anyone flying a camera over non-public property.  This law isn’t from the FAA, but rather the FCC’s edict which states that property owners own their own airspace from ground level to 400 feet above ground level. 

Inspired by the way you approached Squrl despite your other projects, I decided now was the time to start to code. Over the next 111 days, I poured every available moment in to learning Objective-C, Apple's design rules, and xCode's workflow. 

You've spoken quite eloquently on many occasions about the hierarchical concepts of programming, championing organization and specificity of concept as inseparable from the code itself. Boy were you right!

Below is an iTunes App store code which should let your download Legal Flyer. EDIT: Since this is an open letter, you'll have to tweet @nerdslimited directly or get the code from the mail bag at GRC.com 

I thought you might like to see the kind of security-minded stuff you’ve inspired from me. The app is iPad only but will be out for iPhone and iPod touch in a week or so.

Keep up the great work!
