A colleague asked me what cleaning job to buy. Instead of "Chinese" I recommended him Roomba

Marek, my good friend, some time ago he asked me what cleaning job he should buy. As his budget was about PLN 2,000, he wanted to choose the often recommended Roborock S50. I convinced him that Roomba e5 would be a better choice. Looking through the reviews on the topic of automatic vacuum cleaners you can come across a lot of people recommending Xiaomi equipment. This is due to the first-generation Xiaomi model, which was characterized by a considerable cleaning efficiency and at the same time costing only PLN 1,200. It is worth remembering, however, that this robot was available for a long time only in Chinese stores, which did not particularly care about paying VAT to the Polish budget. As a curiosity, I will add that the Polish distributor initially determined the price of this model at PLN 1799. Let this show the scale of "savings" we are talking about. Nevertheless, many people compared it with equipment whose prices already contained all taxes, m

Facebook will change the look on browsers. We have been waiting for this for too long

In addition to the announcement of the redesigned Messenger, Mark Zuckerberg promised several smaller and larger novelties. We will see, among other things, a refresh of the website version for browsers. Facebook in the browser looks archaic. In addition, users can feel like guinea pigs, because the interface elements change like in a kaleidoscope - sometimes at intervals of a few days. The website wants to refresh your site. The new visual layer is to be more modern and lighter. As you can see below, all the main elements of the website have been refreshed. We see, therefore, news with the relationships promoted on the Facebook mobile application fashion. Switching between individual parts of the platform (Watch, Marketplace, friends, Messenger) will take place on the upper beam. The page of our profile will also change. In this case, you can see an even greater similarity to the elements known from the mobile application. It can therefore be said that visual

Oculus Quest is officially. These are the best VR games without PC and smartphone

After the refreshed Messengerze, we got another novelty from Facebook: Oculus Quest sunglasses and Oculus Rift S, which will go on sale in May. Virtual reality has not died yet. Although until now VR equipment has not gained much popularity, we are witnessing a new hand in this segment. Facebook together with Oculus at the F8 conference showed two new sets of VR goggles, and we got to know the details of the Valve Index VR glasses. Also, do not forget about the upcoming PlayStation VR2 that are supposed to debut along with the PS5. Let's start with Oculus Quest, or the autonomous VR goggles.

Messenger on smartphones is supposed to be lighter. There will also be a new application for Windows and macOS

2019 promises to be a new deal for Messenger. A slimmer version of the communicator and an official Messenger client for Windows and macOS are being prepared. During the F8 conference devoted to the future of Facebook, we learned about the news of the waiting messenger. There is something to wait for. Messenger on a diet. The application will be heavily slimmed down. Facebook announced the work on the LightSpeed ​​project, which is the next step in the total reconstruction of Mesenger. The application has recently gained a new, refreshed look, but is still overloaded with features. The new Messenger app should take less than 30 MB, and it should run in less than 2 seconds. This is a full version of the Messenger, not the Lite version. The team of Facebook developers wants to achieve this by rewriting the application code, and so - to the dissatisfaction of many people - all the weirdness of the Messenger will stay with us.

Garmin presents five new watches. Including Forerunner 945

Garmin has prepared a powerful refreshment for his Forerunner line today. Five new watches have been presented, including 45, 45S, 245, 245 Music and probably the most-anticipated - 945. What's new and who should enjoy the most? Let's start with the most important prime minister of today: Garmin Forerunner 945 That is the direct successor of the popular 935. In relation to the predecessor, this time the place was primarily for music playback functions (including Spotify) and built-in memory for it (up to 1000 songs), Garmin Pay contactless payments, as well as maps. So for less money, we get largely the most important functions from the latest watches from the Fenix ​​line. The difference is mainly packaging, which has not changed exaggeratedly compared to 935. In addition to these three key novelties, the Forerunner 945 introduces, among others, a new optical heart rate sensor, new software for analyzing workout performance and measuring the level of

Apple needs Steve Jobs. Without it, a mess has been made, over which no one rules

Steve Jobs founded Apple together with Wozniak in 1976. In 1985 he was forced to leave his own company. He returned in 1996, however, to get Apple out of trouble in which the company found himself in his absence. When I look at Apple's offer today, I get the impression that in 2019 the colossus again needs to return Jobs. In 1996, Apple bought Next - a new company from Jobs. And that's how Steve was brought back to the company again. This is a simplified story, of course, and I refer to the book "Being like Steve Jobs", which Leander Kahney wrote, and above all the biography of the pen by Walter Isaacson. In the first of these books we find a quote that shows the situation in which the company was when she had to stand on her head to get Job's back together: When I sat in an armchair, I saw a thousand and one products - said later Jobs. - Something amazing. I began to ask, why do they recommend 3400 instead of 4400? When is it worth changin

Acer cares about professionals. These devices are simply created for people in constant motion

Contemporary business is primarily a mobile business. Employees and managers who stay in constant motion need machines that keep pace with them - and Acer has something special for them in his portfolio . From the meeting to the meeting, from the office to the office, from the train to the train, from the airport to the airport - this is the life of business people. And the work itself will not be done, so you have to do it regardless of the place and time. Acer is aware of the nature of this work, which is why their machines are simply tailored to the specific requirements of being constantly in motion. Acer TravelMate X5 - something for those who spend half a day in Pendolino. Anyone who had ever driven Pendolino must have seen them - clustered, silent, usually dressed in blue jackets, leaning over their laptops, men digging numbers into an excel table, occasionally ringing an unknown caller asking "how are we standing with the presentation? ". Spe

Great pictures of the cosmic crab on the 29th anniversary of the Hubble Telescope

The cosmic crab has never looked so good. The anniversary photographs of the nebula around 7,000 light-years from Earth delight. It's been 29 years since the Hubble Space Telescope has been circulating in orbit around the world and carrying out hundreds of thousands of space images. Every year, the famous telescope makes its anniversary photos . Thanks to this tradition, in 2019 we can see new photographs of the amazing Southern Crab Nebula. https://youtu.be/MWW3_srdxBM Red giant and white dwarf, or cosmic crab The Southern Crab (officially called Henize 2-104) is a planetary nebula in the Centaur's constellation about 7000 light-years distant from Earth. It consists of two main objects: a red giant and a white dwarf. https://youtu.be/7g4ZZbVSpdo Elements that look like legs and crab claws are actually bubbles of gas and dust. They are ejected by both stars in the very center of the nebula. The red giant is a dying star that is in the process of rele
