5 (4) 100%

How does CD Audio Track from MP3 work?
In cars and older sound systems we find CD players that can not play compressed music (mp3, mp4, flac etc.). That's why we need to burn some audio tracks from MP3 files and our favorite tracks from time to time.
What is the difference between the audio track CD and MP3?
Audio track (Track) - the songs are uncompressed on high quality.
Disadvantages - it does not fit too many tracks on a CD, the quality being the same if you shoot from MP3.
Advantages - high-resolution sound (if shot in the studio)
CD in MP3 format (s) - here the songs are stored in a container, compressed.
Disadvantages - Some MP3 files have very poor audio quality
Advantages - More MP3 than tracks are on a CD.
What would I choose between a CD player and a MP3 player?
My choice is obvious. A MP3 player is [...]

Debug network card failure Offline-No connections available (with red X)

"Offline - No Available Connections"
A few days ago I received an update to Windows 10, which broke my network card, meaning that a red X appeared on the network card icon, in fact it is a red circle with a white X inside. In addition to this red X, the message "Offline - No Connections Available" is displayed when you are holding your mouse on the bottom right network board.
I said it was just a bios initialization problem because we had Fast Boot enabled on the motherboard in bios; But I opened the Acer V15 Nitro laptop and so on.
It's not the first offense to Windows 10 that.
The same problem I had a one-year-old trace ... would it be any thing that appears once a year when the spring comes ???

Transforming Speech into Computer Text - Dictation for PC

TTS vs. STT
If last time we introduced you to Text to Speech, today we have a Speech to Text service, that is, transforming speech into text.
Translating speech into text is extremely important in many applications, but especially in the user interface and assistant type.

Transforming speech into text

I have also presented you some of this Speech to Text service now, but in the meantime it has improved a lot and I thought it deserves our attention again.
Dictation.io
It's a free service that you can use in your Google Chrome browser. Dictation is based on Google Voice Recognition, which is why it works so well.
How Good Does Speech Work with Dictation Text?
Last time the dictation service was quite spartan (now about 5 years), and did not offer anyone who knows what options. Now we have support for signs of [...]

Fix Windows high resolution bluetooth windows (DPI scaling)

One of Windows's problems is the incorrect scaling of some applications or submenus when the DPI is scaled. We'll notice that as soon as we've increased the DPI to 125%, 150%, 175% or 200%, almost all apps show text, icons and graphics, blurry.
What is DPI scaling?
DPI scaling is mainly used on high-resolution monitors. Normally on an 100% DPI, a high-resolution monitor, operating system icons, text, menus, etc. in the operating system will see VERY SMALL.
To solve problems with displaying too few characters on the screen, Microsoft has provided the scaling option for the DPI. Unfortunately this scaling is not perfect every time, in the case of some applications we will see blued pictures instead of clear and well defined images, so [...]

Why PCs are weaker overnight - RESOLVATE update meltdown

How do things with Meltdown, Specter, and PC performance?
A few days ago I told you about the Meltdown and Specter vulnerabilities, which led to Windows and Linux updates being released.
System updates can only solve the Meltdown vulnerability, with manufacturers of motherboards, systems, or laptops providing users with BIOS updates that will resolve Specter vulnerability.
Loss of performance quite important!
Intel's older 4 (Haswell) generation processors may suffer significant performance losses.
To me (Ivy Bridge) it feels extremely losing performance. if until yesterday some web pages opened in 2 seconds, now the same pages are over 5 seconds to load.
How do we solve the loss of performance?
We have two solutions, and in both we will lose the "protection" for Meltdown. Why did I put it in quotes? Because they talk about [...]
