Although the functioning principle is basically the same, there are different types of desktop weed vaporizers. If you want to choose the one that’s right for you, you need to understand these differences. This article takes a closer look at the main parameters that can influence your purchasing decision so that you can make the best choice right off the bat.
Your budget will probably dictate the type of desktop weed vaporizer you’re going to buy.
Nonetheless, you’ll also have to consider other factors such as the build quality, the warranty, and the vaping experience in itself. The best way to proceed is to gather information about the best vaporizers in each category, and then use a spreadsheet or a table to compare them side by side. Like this, you’ll have an excellent overview of all the pros and cons of each model, so you’ll be able to make an informed decision right away. Let’s see how you can do this research work most efficiently.
In terms of build quality and warranty, you’d be better off with a reputable brand. Well-known manufacturers are usually willing to go the extra mile to keep their users happy so that they would offer a better warranty and higher quality products than no-name vaporizers available on the market. You may have to pay more, but you’ll have the peace of mind that your unit will deliver you the ultimate vaping experience you’re after.
Pick the right vape for your needs !
The Volcano, for instance, is the top pick of many vapers, thanks to its impressive vapor quality. Another feature that makes the Volcano so popular is that it belongs to the bag vaporizers category. This means that the vapor accumulates inside a bag, from where you are free to inhale it as you please. Made in Germany, the Volcano is a durable device, able to serve you for a very long time. The most significant drawback of this desktop weed vaporizer is its price, so if this falls out of your budget range, you may need to look for cheaper alternatives.
If you prefer bag vaporizers, but you don’t want to buy an expensive one, you can go for the budget option in this category, which is the Extreme-Q. This one offers you two options: to use a bag or a whip. It isn’t as convenient as the Volcano, because the bag is slower to fill and you need to keep your finger over the tube to prevent the vapor from leaking. Nonetheless, its price makes the Extreme-Q a very interesting option for those who want the best value for money.
If you don’t care about having the vapor accumulate inside a bag, you can choose a direct draw or a whip vaporizer. The VapeXhale Cloud EVO is perhaps the top of the direct draw vaporizers category, but it is also quite pricey. If you would instead choose a budget option, you may want to take a look at the E-Nano vaporizer.
Once you’ve compared all these advantages and drawbacks of the best desktop weed vaporizers on the market, you’ll surely be able to make the right choice for you.
Is the Microsoft OS overrated? Cleaning it up usually, gets it going! Additional programs are not necessary if you want to make Windows faster – it works with Windows-specific tools.
A freshly installed Windows is fast – especially on a new PC and enriched with current drivers. The speed frenzy disappears with time: data garbage blocks the system, fragmented files force long reading of required contents (at least with hard drives), active autostarts and services consume resources in the background. Such side effects occur in everyday use.
Why reinstall Windows every 14 days? No! Today we reveal how to make Windows faster with only a few tweaks – without additional programs! Is the pc on the move? Try the suggestions anyway.
Update Windows 10: Good for speed
With an update to the latest Windows 10, an important step has already been taken: current Windows 10 versions bring new functions that influence performance. For example, Windows 10 Creators Update (1703) introduced a digital garbage collection function in the Settings app that works similar to CCleaner.
Since the Windows 10 April 2018 Update (1803) you clean up the autostart with the Settings app; the comparable functionality in the Task Manager remains the same. Another article explains the changed automatic background mechanisms that Microsoft has introduced for better memory management. Interesting for Windows 10 1803 and 1809 (April 2018 and October 2018 update): Both OS load the Edge Browser into RAM when booting, so that it is available faster; with the 1809 Windows the loading of the add-ons is omitted, so that the former (with 1803) high memory consumption decreases.
Addressing recurring problems
Windows don’t just slacken like that, especially installed autostart programs slow it down – usually, more than other factors, because in RAM bottlenecks the system has to swap out data to the hard disk (to the swap file called pagefil.sys). Even if you use an SSD as your system drive, you will notice a loss of speed, because SSDs are much slower than RAM, just like hard disks.
Services can be compared to autostarts, but when deactivating such mini-programs you need to be more careful compared to autostarts – and the speed gain is usually much lower. Data garbage on a file basis, which makes the overview in the Explorer/file system more difficult, rarely hits the brakes. The same applies to extra registry entries that remain during program de-installations. You should defragment after deleting data garbage: Thanks to the orderly file components, read and write operations on hard disks are again carried out without delay.
Ultimate performance unlocked and more.
In addition to standard tips, the article also deals with more critical speed-gain measures, which in themselves have comparatively little effect, but in combination with the others ignite the turbo. In addition to the obligatory deletion of temporary files, the task is to configure the program preloader Superfetch, for example, to use a USB stick as a working memory extension, to reset the energy saving in favor of the tempo, or to display the taskbar preview without delay.
New for Windows 10: “High Performance” has got a successor – by cryptic command line command you activate the energy saving mode “Ultimate Performance”! This drives up the power consumption, but gets everything out of the device.
System 76 will soon be upgrading its Linux notebook Oryx Pro with RTX graphics units. The display of the smaller model gets a little bigger, and Linux is pre-installed. The American manufacturer also delivers to EU countries.
From the end of February, the American notebook provider System76 will offer its Linux laptop Oryx Pro in a new version, reports the IT magazine Softpedia. The basic structure remains the same: It is a device that comes pre-installed with Ubuntu 18.04 LTS or Pop!_OS 18.04 LTS. New are the built-in Nvidia-Turing graphics cards. Possible is a Geforce RTX 2060, RTX 2070 or RTX 2080.
The chassis is offered with a 17.3-inch panel and an unusual 16.1-inch display. Both screens are anti-glare and display content in full HD. An optional frame rate of 144 Hz emphasizes the focus on Linux gaming. The built-in Intel Core i7-8750 processor with six cores is undoubtedly also interesting for software developers, video editors, and graphic designers. Up to 32 GByte DDR4 RAM and up to 8 TByte storage capacity fit into the case thanks to a combination of up to two NVMe SSDs and a 2.5-inch SATA drive.
Many ports available but no management engine
The notebooks also have a wide range of ports, including two mini-display port 1.3 jacks, an SD card reader and HDMI. The 16-inch model uses two USB type C ports and three USB A ports at 3.1 Gen 2 speeds. The 17.3-inch model has a single Thunderbolt 3 port and four USB A jacks. An RJ-45 port for Gigabit Ethernet and WLAN to Wi-Fi 5 is also provided. The Intel Management Engine is disabled by default for security reasons.
System76 also delivers to Germany, Austria, and Switzerland. The company has not mentioned a starting price for the new versions of the Oryx Pro. The predecessor starts at around 1,600 US dollars before taxes and import duties. Interested parties can find out when the product is available on the product page.
The new Nokia 9 Pureview from HMD Global promises improved image quality with its five main cameras. We’ve checked it out thanks to our tech partners and would like to report on it.
With the Nokia 9 HMD Global has relaunched the Pureview series. The smartphone has a total of five cameras and a ToF sensor. Two of the cameras take color pictures, the other three black-and-white photos.
All camera sensors have the same resolution of 12 megapixels and the same viewing angle. Unlike many of its competitors, HMD Global does not use a telephoto or super wide-angle lens. A sensor with a higher resolution, for example, to enable a high-quality digital zoom, is also missing.
On the one hand, the combination of the five lenses is intended to provide better image dynamics and contrasts. On the other hand, the Nokia 9 can capture considerably more depth planes, a Zeiss representative speaks of 1,200 instead of the usual 10.
This allows us to reset the focus point in the images after shooting and edit the blur very precisely. We can also easily manipulate the foreground in this way.
The first impression of the image quality is good, but the new Galaxy S10+ makes the better image in direct comparison. But we couldn’t test the camera of the Nokia 9 extensively yet, because it always crashed in certain modes. However, it’s noticeable that the processing takes almost ten seconds after taking the picture; until the finished image is loaded, we only get a blurred preview.
The Nokia 9 is expected to be launched in March and will cost 650 euros. Because of the Snapdragon 845, 6 GB RAM and 6 inch OLED display, this is not a bad price.
Bitcoin, altcoin, wallet, blockchain, transactions. If you are new to this market, you probably don’t understand anything or not much to these concepts. It doesn’t matter: today, I explain all the steps to go and buy Bitcoin. If you want to follow these steps as you go, prepare an email address, your identity papers, and a credit card.
How much should I invest?
The first thing to know: you don’t have to buy a “whole” Bitcoin. You will be free to choose how much you will invest. For example, my first purchase of bitcoins was 100 euros (103 including the site commission). We will assume that you want to invest the same amount.
In everyday life, the currency we use is divided into 100 cents, and we can write two digits after the decimal point. Bitcoin has eight decimal places, and the divisions are called “satoshis.” This name is derived from the pseudonym of the inventor of Bitcoin, Satoshi Nakamoto, about whom very little is known.
Why buy Bitcoins?
When you buy Bitcoins, you bet on the fact that their prices will rise. It’s the same principle as with stocks, except that instead of betting on a company’s profits, you hope that Bitcoin’s demand will increase and the purchase price will rise. This way, you will receive a profit when you resell your Bitcoin.
On the same principle, it is possible to buy and sell foreign currencies (Dollar, Euro, etc.). This is called Forex (Foreign Exchange).
Be careful, as with all investments; Bitcoin carries risks: if tomorrow, the price falls, the value of your Bitcoin holdings will fall, and part of the amount you have invested will have disappeared. Don’t take any ill-considered risks, and only “bet” what you are willing to lose!
To be put into perspective: on the right, here is the Bitcoin price curve over one year. More than 800% increase.
What makes the price of Bitcoin rise?
Several factors come into play. Simply put, supply is limited, and demand is increasing.
The first reason for this demand is speculation: buying/selling with the aim of making a profit. You and I are not the only ones (far from it) who have sniffed the right plan. An increasing number of players are investing more and more money to buy Bitcoin.
In contrast, commercial services with a street address already accept payments in Bitcoin. Today, you can buy everything in Bitcoin on the Internet, from fashion to food, and the list is growing every day.
We often hear that Bitcoin will eventually collapse. This is not impossible, but it should be noted that at present, on all exchange sites, the price of all crypto assets is more often calculated on the basis of Bitcoin price than on the basis of the price of the euro or the dollar, for example. Bitcoin, therefore, serves as a standard meter in the world of cryptocurrencies and will be difficult to dethrone from this role as it is implemented everywhere.
To complete the picture, it should be noted that the supply of Bitcoin is not unlimited. There will be, in all and for all, 21 million bitcoins, and not one more. You will learn more from this Twitter account!
What is a Wallet?
To store your future Bitcoins, you will need the equivalent of a bank account, a portfolio. It’s called a wallet.
Your Wallet has a public address. Like a bank number, you can share it, since it is only used to send you money.
You will also receive an identifier, in the form “96588g8394u-bfc8-4dd2-851c-34bc10401374”. This identifier must remain secret; it is a little equivalent to your credit card code: it allows you to connect to your account and, in particular, to send money.
To start, I advise you to create an online wallet. It goes faster and technically easier. We will use an online service that will generate your Bitcoins portfolio for you. For example, I recommend Coinbase, which is rather simple to use, and which also allows you to buy Bitcoin, Litecoin, and Ethereum. If you plan to invest large sums of money, push the paranoia to the point of creating an email address specifically for cryptocurrency services, and don’t give it to anyone.
