Now playing: Watch this: Travelling 2,600 miles across Europe in a VW camper 28:48 Teething problems (London to Austria)

The first leg of driving was a big one: an 800-mile, 15-hour stint from London, boarding the Eurotunnel car train under the English Channel to France, then into Germany and finally to Austria. Getting a huge chunk of miles out of the way at once gave us more time to spend later cruising around the areas we were most keen to see.

Plus, there are the usual myriad small updates. Other highlights include an overdue distortion and perspective correction tool, vmware Upright; reusable custom page layouts and page-numbering tweaks in the Book module; a radial filter; the expansion of the spot healing/clone tool into a full-blown healing brush; and the option to insert playable videos into slideshows. The latest iteration of Adobe’s raw-editing and management software development, Adobe Lightroom 5, offers a modest set of enhancements that will make some photographers very happy but will probably make a large number of others shrug and choose to skip it. The biggest news: support for proxy editing of disconnected images, a feature dubbed Smart Preview. What’s not here: still no face recognition or tagging, HDR editing, panorama stitching, or expansion of the video capabilities. Editors’ note: This is an updated and rated version of the First Take published on April 15, 2013, based on subsequent testing of the final software.

PayPal reversed the transaction and charged Wandt instead. The scammer paid Wandt with a stolen PayPal account and then claimed he’d never received the item. Adam Wandt, who teaches digital forensics and cybersecurity at New York’s John Jay College of Criminal Justice, found that out firsthand when he sold his first iPhone on eBay.

Be sure the websites you’re designing are cross-browser compatible. You must check your site in the most popular versions of every top browser. Many users use these browsers for surfing online, so you need to be sure your designs are being seen correctly on whatever they use. Some examples include Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, Safari, Mozilla Firefox and Opera.

I also find the traditional “marching ants” type of selection display completely unsuited to phone-size screens. It’s easier to see if you go into Refine Edge, which overlays a red mask, but overall I think we need a new interface metaphor for handling selections on small screens. In places it’s impossible to make out the border, requiring a lot of tedious zooming in and out to tweak the selection.

The fixture plugs into standard 120V outlets, so there’s no need for hardwiring, though you will need to hang the thing up — Big *** Light sells a wire-mounting kit for $10. The Big *** Light Shop LED is available for sale on the company website and through Home Depot, and comes with a 7-year warranty that includes the light’s power supply.

If you have any issues about wherever and how to use it maintenance, you can speak to us at our website. Some can even take command of your camera to record everything you type and look at. Plugging directly into a public charging USB port can put you at serious risk of “juice-hacking.” That’s when hackers use that same USB connection to transfer malware directly to your device and access your email, text messages, photos and windows server contacts. Never use a public charging station. 


Encryption scrambles data, making it impossible for unauthorized readers to make sense of it. It’s especially important when you’re traveling and your phone and tablet are at their most vulnerable to being lost or stolen. It’s easy to encrypt your device with Google’s or Apple’s security setup.

But learning what others have gone through and how they practice self-care made me empathize with these strangers. Reddit was about the last place on Earth I thought I’d look to ruminate about these issues and get help with my personal insecurities. In turn, it made me empathize with preteen Lynn. She was too hard on herself frankly, and though it took a number of years, the shame she felt even talking about her acne has started chipping away.

Getting your testing wrong: Developers need to own both the quality of the product and the responsibility for making it easy to test. There is need for test engineers, but if developers have created the automated test environments, the test team can focus on maximising quality.

This is considered one of the best ways of building a relationship.  Send them a ‘nice to meet you’ email and perhaps news clipping every now about something they are interested in.   It needs to be something of value ‘to them’.

Lori Grunin/CNET Another universally welcome new capability is the expansion of the spot healing/clone tool into a brush for working on irregularly shaped areas. It’s not without its glitches, perhaps because it’s unused to finding matches for larger areas — while trying to fix a large under-eye area it drew from the lips, which is not a good look — but it’s certainly a useful feature extension. This version expands the spot healing tool into a brush for noncircular fixes and gains an opacity slider for fine-tuning. Also, Shift+Q will toggle you between clone and heal.
