New Samsung TVs are taking a lesson from Dolby Vision IQ, with an HDR10+ Adaptive feature to calibrate in response to ambient light.
It’s unclear if Samsung’s existing TVs will be updated to support the feature. | Image: Samsung HDR10+ Adaptive is a new feature coming to the high dynamic range standard that’ll optimize TV picture quality based on a room’s ambient brightness, Samsung announced today. HDR content is typically designed to look its best in dark rooms with as little ambient light as possible, but the new feature promises to use your TV’s light sensor to react to bright environments and adjust its picture quality accordingly. Samsung says the feature will launch globally with its “upcoming QLED TV products.” HDR10+ isn’t the first HDR standard to have introduced such a feature. At last year’s CES, Dolby announced Dolby Vision IQ, a new feature for its own HDR standard that similarly promises to optimize HDR content for the room it’s being watched in.... Continue reading…

As a writer, I have gotten used to staring at blank pages for hours, and at times days on end, with some ambient music playing I have spent many days just staring at blank pages of my laptop in quiet contemplation.Sometimes no words come out at times words just flow, many times I have written pages and stories and then left them high and dry in between.But yes staring at pages is a lot that I have done, there is something really soothing staring at blankness just waiting for some ideas to flow, at times I feel I am a piano player rather than a writer as the keyboards make a symphony on blank pages.Each word being an imprint in my mind which flows with grace and rhythm as my imagination reappears on these blank pages.At times painting a story whose middle and end I know not, as a painter of words I just move my itchy fingers do the talking on the keyboard.Each word and sentence giving some meaning to an otherwise blank space that says nothing and reflects nothing.

They were not just flat canvases on a wall, but seemed more like living things, pulsing and throbbing in resonance to a wavelength that had a fundamental connection to the Source of things.This was an experience that depended on the presence of the original artifact (art: a fact).A Tune is Not a ToneI spent my early musical life working mostly with music that used-like representational art--some set of familiar musical conventions to create its effect.Slow tempos are common, and arpeggiators and sequencers obviate, to a large degree, the need for ambient musicians to develop sophisticated keyboard skills.I, for one, tend to mix as I go, since the dynamics, effects, and placement in the stereo field are all integral features of my compositions.Furniture MusicI mention these elements of ambient music because they have implications for how we might approach the genre as listeners.There are no interesting developments, themes, or dramatic sonic punctuations.There is typically a bit more sense of rhythm and flow to the sonic tapestries I will select for this purpose (this seems to facilitate the flow of the movement), but I avoid anything with too much musical interest for t'ai chi, as I wish to keep my focus on my breath and movement.Music for MeditationSome people use ambient music for meditation, and this deserves its own discussion.
Apple’s new AirPods Pro will hit stores beginning tomorrow, October 30th, and today, I got a chance to give them a try and put the company’s active noise cancellation to the test.As someone who has never been able to fully enjoy the regular AirPods — they just don’t fit my ears securely — the in-ear design of the AirPods Pro is super appealing.Three silicone tip sizes come in the box, and iOS has a built-in fit test that briefly plays a bit of music to check whether you’ve got a good seal.So from that point, it’s really about picking which one feels most secure and comfortable.To overcome this, Apple designed a vent system into the new AirPods that equalizes pressure on both sides of each earbud so you never have that buildup of air.The $249 AirPods Pro include a multi-microphone system (two in each earbud) that analyzes external ambient sound and cancels it out with anti-noise.
Do I think Tim Cook stalks me?Well, I can’t say for certain, but yes.They feature noise-canceling tech, an ambient awareness mode (the company refers to this as “transparency”), improved sound, and removable ear tips — something you can read about in more detail here.But, what has got me convinced Mr. Tim Apple has been tracking me is how eerily similar these new updates are to an article I wrote earlier in the year telling Apple how they could’ve made the AirPods better.Well, let’s have a look at what I advised and compare it to the reality.While the old AirPods were just sticks of smooth plastic, the AirPods Pro have flexible tips you can remove to get a perfect seal around your earholes.
