‘This is not for any aul eejit’ – RTÉ presenter takes on terrifying climb at Sliabh Liag

first_imgYou can almost feel Carl Mullan’s fear as he braves the heights of Sliabh Liag for his new RTE series.The 2FM presenter recently visited Donegal to film an episode of Go Outside and Play, the new non-traditional travel series launching this week.Carl couldn’t contain his nerves, and his amazement, as he took on the One Man’s Path at Sliabh Liag. With nothing but staggering drops at either side, he soon realised it’s not for the faint-hearted. Watch a preview below:This incredible Donegal adventure will be featured in episode two of Go Outside and Play. The show will be streamed on the RTE Player from Monday 8th July. The series promises to take viewers to some of the most stunning and instagrammable spots in Ireland. Viewers will be able to follow Carl’s adventures to some of the most stunning parts of Ireland, from the ultimate sea cliff experience at Sliabh Liag to the Stairway to Heaven at the Cuilcagh Mountain Boardwalk in Co Fermanagh. Commenting on his new series, Carl said: “The whole idea for the series came about from scrolling through Instagram and coming across an image of a lake in Waterford. It’s called Coumshingaun Lake, and to be honest with you, I couldn’t believe that a place so spectacular was in Ireland. If you had said it was in Canada or Iceland I would have believed you, but Ireland? No way! “I started doing some research about places to go see in Ireland that aren’t necessarily on the front page of a tourism magazine. “We featured 6 of them, but there’s so many of them you wouldn’t believe it. “We live on an incredible little island and I hope this series will give you a sense of that. Once you’ve watched it you’ll want to call your mates, hop in the car with them and go on an adventure.” ‘This is not for any aul eejit’ – RTÉ presenter takes on terrifying climb at Sliabh Liag was last modified: July 5th, 2019 by Rachel McLaughlinShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:carl mullanGo Outside and PlayRTEsliabh liagtourismlast_img read more

Evernote & Moleskine Merge Paper & Pixels in “Smart Notebook”

first_img8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market While this works for any page, the Smart Notebook from Moleskine has some enhanced features. It comes with stickers that enable Evernote’s camera to automatically tag your hand-written notes, so they end up in the right place in your digital archive. The small version of the notebook is $24.95, the large is $29.95, and they ship October 1. They’re available for preorder now, and Evernote Trunk Conference attendees received one after the announcement. Evernote’s OCR is great at print, but it also has some of the best computer scientists in the field of handwriting recognition behind it. Some of its core team members were on the Apple Newton team and wrote the CalliGrapher handwriting recognition engine. In May, Evernote acquired Penultimate, the best digital handwriting app for iPad, so now that team gets to optimize Evernote’s OCR with data from all that digital handwriting.To fend off concerns about privacy when storing all these personal notes, CEO Phil Libin stated explicitly that Evernote is “not a big-data company.” User information is private, and it’s only used to optimize the tools themselves. “We want Evernote to be a cognitive aid,” Libin said.

It announced the Evernote Smart Notebook from Moleskine, along with a new version of Evernote for iOS that will bridge the gap that’s familiar to anyone with an urgent need to capture ideas.Despite Evernote’s efforts to move people to go paperless, Moleskine’s fancy journals are still a booming business. But according to the presentation at the Evernote Trunk Conference, 60% of Moleskine owners also use digital notes. While Evernote has long had optical character recognition built in, so stored photos of printed text are searchable on your computers, there’s still a big divide between our hand-written and digital outboard brains.See also: Evernote: A 0-to–60 MPH GuideToday’s update to Evernote for iOS adds a new mode called Page Camera, which is optimized for bringing handwritten pages into Evernote. It fixes the contrast and shadows, so the handwriting is more visibile. That makes the notes more legible to you, but it also enables Evernote to read and search the text.last_img read more

Redmi Note 7 Pro, iPhone XR, Samsung Galaxy S10+: Best phones to buy in April

first_imgIt has been a pretty busy and eventful 2019 already with almost every mainstream smartphone brand launching a bunch of phones over the past four months. We have seen phones range from the ultra affordable Redmi Go to the ultra premium Galaxy S10+, so one is likely to find something new in every price segment. This is why we decided to put together a list of some of the best phones you can buy in the month of April.Our list for April includes a lot of new phones to have come out this year and some phones from 2018 that continue to stay relevant in 2019. Samsung in particular has been quite busy, launching a handful of impressive affordable and mid-range phones in just a span of three months. Xiaomi has also kept itself busy this year as usual and you’ll also find phones from regulars like Nokia, Realme and Apple, to name a few.Cheapest phone money can buyRedmi Go: Rs 4,499The Redmi Go (Review) is Xiaomi’s first Android Go, and it is expectedly also Xiaomi’s cheapest smartphone yet. With the Redmi Go, Xiaomi wants to attract first-time smartphone users making the switch from feature phones. It comes with bare-boned specs that includes a 5-inch HD display, a Snapdragon 425 chipset, 1GB of RAM and 8GB of inbuilt storage. As an Android Go phone, the Redmi Go runs on Android Oreo (Go edition) with preloaded Google Go apps like Gmail Go, YouTube Go, Maps Go and so on.Best phones under Rs 10,000Redmi Note 7: Rs 9,999advertisementYou can trust Xiaomi to offer dependable low-cost phones, and the Redmi Note 7 is the latest phone in what is a pretty long list. The Redmi Note 7 offers excellent value as it comes with a premium glass design coupled with a powerful mid-range chipset, all for under Rs 10,000. You get a 6.3-inch FHD+ waterdrop display and Gorilla Glass 5 protection. It is one of the cheapest phones with a Snapdragon 660 chipset and the phone also packs a solid 4,000mAh battery that charges over a Type-C port. This is topped with a 12MP + 2MP dual camera system and a 13MP selfie camera.Realme 3: Rs 8,999 Realme seems to have gotten off to a good start this year with the Realme 3 (Review), selling 5 lakh units in just three weeks. The reason behind Realme’s success is because the company is walking on the path of Xiaomi by offering great design and specs at affordable prices. The Realme 3 charms with its gradient design, 6.2-inch HD+ waterdrop display, smooth Helio P70 processor and decent cameras made better with Nightscape made. At Rs 8,999, the Realme 3 offers a lot of value, and should be the perfect alternative to the Redmi Note 7.Best phones under Rs 15,000Samsung Galaxy M30: Rs 14,990Samsung has been really impressive this year, launching a series of affordable and value-for-money phones under the new Galaxy M series. The Galaxy M30 (Review) is the latest in the M-series lineup and it is perhaps one of the best phones under Rs 15,000 right now. The Galaxy M30 offers a stunning striking 6.4-inch FHD+ (2340×1080) Super AMOLED display, gradient design and a massive 5,000mAh battery, which is perhaps the best in this segment. The cameras on the Galaxy M30 are decent, but underwhelming in low-light. The phone also ships with Android Oreo with Experience UI 9.5 on top, which may disappoint some.Realme 2 Pro: Rs 12,990Realme will announce the Realme 3 Pro (Review) this month, but if you’re in a hurry to get the best of Realme right now, it will have to be the Realme 2 Pro. Starting at Rs 12,990, the Realme 2 Pro offers a combination of premium dewdrop design along with powerful hardware with a Snapdragon 660 chipset at its core. It is a terrific affordable device to play PUBG and you get some good 16MP cameras as well.Redmi Note 7 Pro: 13,999 Like the Redmi Note 7, the Redmi Note 7 Pro (Review) is yet another disruptive smartphone from Xiaomi. The Redmi Note 7 Pro sports a premium Gorilla Glass design, gradient colours, 6.3-inch FHD+ waterdrop display and a large 4,000mAh battery. Two features in particular make the Redmi Note 7 Pro a no-brainer in this segment – the Snapdragon 675 chipset and a 48MP dual camera setup.Best phones under Rs 20,000Samsung Galaxy A50: Rs 19.990In addition to the Galaxy M-series, Samsung has also impressed with its Galaxy A devices in 2019. The Galaxy A50 (Review) brings the best of Samsung’s mid-range chops at a great value. The phone offers a stunning glasstic design combined with a fantastic 6.4-inch FHD+ (2340×1080) Super AMOLED Infinity-U display and a powerful 2.3GHz octa-core Exynos 9610 chipset. It also comes with an in-display fingerprint sensor and a long-lasting 4,000mAh battery. The icing on the cake is the 25MP triple camera setup that captures some great pictures in daylight.advertisementPoco F1: Rs 19,999The Poco F1 (Review) has had a terrific staying power for the simple reason being it is still the cheapest phone with a flagship Snapdragon 845 chipset. No other company has been able to deliver flagship specs at this price point, and the Poco F1 is still worth every penny even today. In addition to a powerful chipset, you also get some a 6.18-inch FHD+ display, some good quality dual cameras and a large 4,000mAh battery. The Poco F1 has already been updated to Android Pie and is due to get Android Q in the future as well.Best phones under Rs 30,000Nokia 8.1: Rs 26,999HMD Global is yet to bring the Nokia 9 PureView to India, so the Nokia 8.1 (Review) is the most premium Nokia phone you can get right now. And if you have a budget of around Rs 27,000, the Nokia 8.1 is definitely worth the money. The Nokia 8.1 sports a classy and elegant glass and metal design coupled with a terrific Snapdragon 710 chipset and stock Android Pie as part of the Android One program.Oppo F11 Pro: Rs 24,990 The Oppo F11 Pro (Review) may offer the same Helio P70 chipset as the cheaper Realme 3, but the company justifies the pricing in other ways. The Oppo F11 Pro delivers a large and stunning 6.5-inch FHD+ (2340×1080) LCD display, unique gradient colours in Thunder Black and Aurora Green, a long-lasting battery and a 48MP camera that manages to take some excellent low-light shots thanks to the Nightscape mode.Best phones under Rs 50,000OnePlus 6: Rs 37,999The OnePlus 6T (Review) will likely be succeeded by the OnePlus 7 soon, so this is the best time to get the OnePlus flagship. OnePlus hasn’t dropped the price of the OnePlus 6T, but it probably doesn’t need to. At Rs 37,999, you get an incredibly fast flagship, probably the fastest flagship phone in the market right now. This is thanks toHonor View 20: Rs 37,999Perhaps the only neck-to-neck competitor to the OnePlus 6T right now. The Honor View 20 (Review) was the first flagship to launch this year, and it set a pretty high standard for its stunning punch-hole display and chevron glass design coupled with a powerful Kirin 980 chipset, an exciting 48MP camera and a long-lasting 4,000mAh battery. The Honor View 20 is in a lot of ways better than the OnePlus 6T, and its pricing even helps it trump the Huawei Mate 20 Pro.Best phones that money can buySamsung Galaxy S10+: Rs 73,900If you’re spending around Rs 70,000 on a phone, you expect to get the best design and hardware on a smartphone, and the Galaxy S10+ (Review) fits that bill perfectly. Samsung’s latest flagship is one of the best-designed phones this year, offering a premium curved glass design, a stunning edge-to-edge Dynamic AMOLED punch-hole display, a blazing fast Exynos 9820 chipset paired with One UI on top and a solid battery life, among other things, You get an impressive triple camera setup as well, although low-light photography may be the only thing that puts you off if you compare it against the competition.advertisement You should also consider the Galaxy S10e, which is arguably Samsung’s best compact flagship yet.A special mention to the Rs 55,999 Galaxy S10e (Review), which I believe is the best S10 for most consumers. For a lower price, you get the same flagship performance, software and mostly the same cameras as the S10 and S10+. The display, while not curved or QHD+ supported, is still sharp and attractive, and you also get a snappy side fingerprint sensor and reverse wireless charging.Huawei Mate 20 Pro: Rs 64,990We are yet to review the new Huawei P30 Pro, so we would recommend the Mate 20 Pro (Review) for now. Despite being a 2018 flagship, the Mate 20 Pro is still worth its premium price. This is a feature-packed phone that has all the bells and whistles that you would expect from a flagship, including a 6.39-inch 2K+ (1440×3120) OLED display and a Kirin 980 coupled with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage. The phone supports 40W SuperCharge fast charging that will quickly charge a large 4,200mAh battery. The Mate 20 Pro also offers some of the best triple cameras in the market.Google Pixel 3: Rs 69,999The Pixel is a phone that consumers look towards if they want excellent cameras. The Pixel 3 follows the path set by its predecessors and offers superior cameras made even better thanks to the revolutionary Night Sight mode. The Pixel 3 is also notable for its stock Android interface, and you can be rest assured that it will be the first to get Android Q later this year. Other features include a 5.5-inch FHD+ (2160×1080) OLED display, Snapdragon 845 chipset and glass design.iPhone XR: Rs 59,900 The iPhone XR (Review) continues to be the best iPhone for most people. While it was launched at Rs 76,999, Apple recently discounted its price via offline Apple Authorised Retailers where you can get the XR for as low as Rs 53,000 after applying some offers. This makes it more value-for-money than even the Galaxy S10e. At this price, you get an unparalleled performance courtesy the A12 Bionic chipset, probably the best battery life in a flagship phone, some decent cameras, Face ID and iOS 12.ALSO READ | Samsung Galaxy S10e review: Affordable, compact and the best S10 to buylast_img read more
