Xiaomi either knows what he is doing or he is hijacking the sun. Xiaomi Mi 10 - first impressions

Let's find out if Xiaomi is better this time. We start testing Xiaomi Mi 10. Read also: Xiaomi Mi 10 and Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro debut in Poland. It's expensive You can read the full review of the latest Xiaomi in a few weeks. I took the smartphone out of the package just a few hours ago, so it's too early for any conclusions and definitive opinions. In the first contact, Xiaomi Mi 10 makes a pretty good impression. Taking Xiaomi Mi 10 into your hand, you can clearly feel that we are dealing with a top-of-the-range phone. The construction is solid, perfectly fitted and with 208 g of weight ... quite substantial. The phone is quite good in the hand, for 162.5 x 74.8 x 8.96 mm. This is mainly due to the curved frames not only on the display (which is more disturbing than helping), but also on the back. There is no headphone connector on the edges (small loss). Interestingly, we find a second speaker at the top of the cabinet. Xiaomi Mi 10 offers stere

Hubble has discovered a long-sought-after intermediate black hole

The latest data from the Hubble Space Telescope provide the strongest evidence for intermediate mass black holes in the universe. Hubble confirmed the presence of such a black hole in one of the dense star clusters. Intermediate-mass black holes (IMBH) have long been a sought-after "missing link" for the evolution of black holes. Only a few candidates for this type of black hole have been discovered so far. These objects are smaller than the supermassive black holes discovered in the centers of large galaxies, but also larger than the star-mass black holes formed by the collapse of the massive star. The black hole observed by scientists has a mass of about 50,000 solar masses. Intermediate black holes are very secretive objects and they are extremely difficult to find. For this reason, scientists must eliminate any other alternative before they announce that they have discovered IMBH. It was Hubble's telescope that allowed us to do this, 'says D

Philips 349P7FUBEB - review

My needs were clear: I wanted a curved monitor to which I would connect two devices at the same time - one with Windows 10, the other with macOS. The condition was also the ultrawide width for working on many windows. I also expected USB-C and bearable gaming parameters. I hunted down the Philips 349P7FUBEB model and checked how it worked. Philips 349P7FUBEB is a 34-inch ultrawide monitor advertised as equipment for both the office and the player's room. When the screen debuted at the end of 2018, its price was over 3500 PLN. Now the monitor can be caught a thousand zlotys cheaper. It was the price drop that made me interested in this model. I must admit that the economic aspect was extremely important to me. I am not a professional photographer or editor. I also don't need a top matrix. Unfortunately, the combination of ultrawide screen, UWQHD resolution and USB-C socket is an expensive combination. The price is particularly high due to the presence o

Resident Evil 3 - review

Resident Evil 3 does not get as good reviews as Resident Evil 2. I am not surprised because the game is noticeably shorter and structurally simpler. I have no doubt that we are still talking about great production that does not deserve such a negative press. I will be the devil's advocate. The embargo on reviews is falling. A moment later I get a message from a friend: - So I'm not buying RE3 for the premiere. I will wait for some promotions. - although I perfectly understand the approach of my colleague seeing all these 7/10 in the Western press, I felt a pang of injustice. I also have the Resident Evil 3 campaign behind me and I do not think that the title deserves only good grades. I have the impression that some reviewers have forgotten what the iconic Resident Evil 3 looked like. The survival horror classic was created at a record pace, on the wave of popularity of RE2. Capcom wanted to earn on the success of the great Twos, while wanting to r

Perhaps the next dream of nostalgic players will come true. Blizzard is preparing Burning Crusade servers

World of Warcraft Classic was the fulfillment of the dreams of those players who longed for the original, "vanilla", more difficult MMORPG in the world of Azeroth. Blizzard decided to follow the blow and take advantage of the nostalgia of players. Despite some predictions, World of Warcraft Classic has been a huge success. Even in 2018, I shared my doubts with readers. I suspected that the power of nostalgia is not enough, and today's "dissolved" players will be afraid of a completely different pace and level of difficulty of the classic game. I was wrong - World of Warcraft Classic has caused the whole game to revive, and the number of active subscriptions is reportedly greater than ever in recent years. Return to the roots brought Azeroth so much awaited renaissance. Players after visiting the classic Azeroth have gained appetite for more. For some time, rumors have been circulating among players about the possible next evolution of cl

Coronavirus will accelerate the appearance of e-receipts. At least in theory

The coronavirus pandemic forces us to take extraordinary precautions, especially when dealing with other people and objects. As part of the spec of the law related to COVID-19 disease, politicians have been trying to introduce the option of issuing e-receipts from April. At least that's the theory. The spec currently being developed assumes that e-receipts, i.e. receipts sent electronically to an e-mail address, will be able to be issued only by those sellers who use online cash registers. The relationship with the spec act on COVID-19 is obvious here. The seller will not have to touch the paper receipt and pass it on to the consumer, which in the current situation will reduce the risk of horizontal coronavirus infection. At least, officials of the Ministry of Finance say in response to the question of Dziennik Gazeta Prawna . Although introduced as part of the spec act on the ongoing pandemic, ultimately this change is to remain with us permanently. Initial

The Apple Swift programming language will soon be compatible with Windows

An investment in learning programming in Swift is becoming more and more profitable. Already today you can write apps for macOS, iOS and its variants, as well as for some Linux distributions. Coming soon for Windows. Apple Swift is a language designed for those who are just starting their adventure with programming and are looking for something easier - but also suitable for writing useful applications.
