Since 1985, Windows has always shipped with a basic image-editing program: Paint. For MacOS, there’s no native equivalent, whether you’re running the latest version or an older one. Apple removed MacPaint long ago. However, Apple’s default app for opening images, PDFs, and other files — called Preview — comes close. It doesn’t mirror Microsoft Paint, but it has a few editing tools, like drawing, adding text, and inserting shapes. Most people don’t know these features exist because they’re hidden behind a button they never think to click. Keep in mind that Preview doesn’t allow you to create new artwork from scratch like Microsoft’s Paint — there’s no blank canvas. These tools are more for annotating and highlighting photos and other files rather than creating new pieces of artwork. Read on to find out how to enable the paint features hidden on your Mac. We’ll also go over how to use the built-in tools, and if you’re looking for something simpler, we’ll go over one-for-one … [Read more...] about A Paint-like app does exist on your Mac. Here’s how to find it

Samsung Galaxy S21+ Score Details DT Recommended Product “The Galaxy S21+ 5G is a classier, bigger version of the S21, and while it has excellent quality, it doesn't drastically improve on the S20+, or reach the heights of the S21 Ultra.” Classy metal-and-glass body Stunning screen performance Capable camera Lacks a 2021 flagship camera S21 Ultra is substantially better in many ways MSRP $999.99 If the Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G is the best Android phone you can buy right now, and the Galaxy S21 5G has all the right ingredients but can’t quite pull them together, where does this leave the Galaxy S21+ 5G? It’s right in-between in price and mixes the S21’s lackluster specs up a bit, yet still doesn’t quite match the S21 Ultra for outright high-tech appeal. Is the Galaxy S21+ the confused middle child, or a bit of a star waiting for its moment to shine? Because the Galaxy S21+ is almost identical to the Galaxy S21 in software, … [Read more...] about Samsung Galaxy S21+ 5G review: Not as good as one, but better than the other
Whether it’s via Zoom, Microsoft Skype, Microsoft Teams, or some other solution, the ability to work with colleagues and teams virtually yet face-to-face has never been so important. Unfortunately, the built-in webcams in most laptops aren’t good. Most use old-school 720p cameras that aren’t well-suited for videoconferencing. There are some rare exceptions, of course. The following options all have 1080p webcams that produce a sharper and more balanced image. In lieu of buying an external webcam , these are the best laptops you can buy for videoconferencing. Google Pixelbook Go It should be no surprise that the best Chromebook makes our list. It’s an incredibly well-built laptop with excellent Chrome OS performance and a lovely 13-inch display. And yes, its webcam supports 1080p and provides a quality image that makes videoconferencing a highly portable and pleasant process. You won’t find many Windows 10 laptops that can match the Google PixelBook Go at its price of … [Read more...] about The best laptops for videoconferencing
Growing up, many of us were told that playing computer or video games was a waste of time. However, when it comes to training artificial intelligence, not only is it not a waste of time, but it could be key to developing the intelligent agents of tomorrow. Several years ago, researchers from Google DeepMind impressively demonstrated that cutting-edge A.I. could be used to master several classic Atari games, without being explicitly taught how to play them. Since then, multiple researchers have tried their hand at reinforcement learning systems that use trial and error to learn how to master games. Now, researchers from Uber AI Labs and OpenAI have come up with a way to refine these tools even further that enables them to exhibit a high level of performance at more complex games that gameplaying A.I. agents have previously struggled with. “The new algorithm that we developed, Go-Explore, outperforms previous machine learning algorithms on many Atari games, including the … [Read more...] about Chess. Jeopardy. Go. Why do we use games as a benchmark for A.I.?
What a difference a year makes, especially for 5G. The new mobile network tech, which seemed almost futuristic a year ago, is widely available today, especially in big cities where the 5G rollout has been prioritized. As such, the AT&T 5G network has expanded and covers more than 14,000 cities and towns throughout the U.S. (see our 5G coverage map for details). If you have 5G coverage, it’s likely on a sub-6 network, which is more available right now. Sub-6 relies on lower frequencies to deliver a larger wireless network, but with a tradeoff in speed, which may be only marginally faster than 4G. Another 5G variant called mmWave (millimeter wave), differs in that the network’s radio waves are much faster than sub-6 networks, offering multi-gigabit speeds at various points. It relies on frequencies that can travel short distances but cannot penetrate obstacles like walls or windows. Sub-6 frequencies travel further, sometimes a distance of miles, but the connections can’t … [Read more...] about The best 5G phones for AT&T
