1265 Borregas Ave

 

It is sad to see this nice office building staying empty.

If you look closer, you will see one of many new Google's fancy glass offices (in the background).

It seems that 30 years old buildlings do not match modern standards any more and are too small for the giants...

In Topic: Sophia rev.C - DVI board

New latency measurements are available for SOPHIA-DVI:

BigBen's setup allows to messure the difference in the latency between 2 monitors.

We have used FUNAI-A1506 TV (popular in Germany) as a reference device (connected to Atari's analog video output), because we didn't have any CRT at hand.

We compared the latency with Acer S200HLBbd PC Monitor (1600x900) connected via DVI to SOPHIA.

Acer has 5ms latency according to the technical specification. FUNAI has exactly the same latency (5ms) compared to CRT monitors (messured before).

 

The results of the measurement show exactly the same timing, which means that SOPHIA-DVI does not introduce any additional delay in video processing. It not only provides sharpest picture ever, but it is also damn fast :)

I don't know yet.

My concern was not to break support for old Android devices.

 

Some apps at Google Play are branched at one point of time (for example: MyFRITZ!App and MyFRITZ!App 2)

The older version is frozen and the owners of the older devices can still install and use that version,

while a new (re-written) app (with a new name) is added to Google Play, which targets the latest API.

 

I hope to be ready with all new features (including "internet modem") until November :)
