How to Resize an Image — WordPress.com

2018/07/25

Three reasons to go with an iPhone X i.e. why not just go with an iPhone 8?

2017/11/22
  1. The oled screen makes you photos look fantastic.
  2. It takes 4K video!
  3. The front facing infrared technology has a lot of abilities. More than just faceid.
  4. The back camera is now better suited for landscape photos.

I’ll post more after the phone arrives.

Contact management in 2016

2016/01/10

I have all my contacts on Yahoo and have for years. Yahoo’s features have worked for me however the service has become dated and does not have some of the more modern look and feel.

However I use the contact features of Apple IOS, mainly facetime and texting string and now photos for contact.

So I’m studying how to maintain these two systems and am considering converting my Yahoo contacts to Apple IOS contacts. To take all my requirements into consideration will be a longer due diligence process some of which I’ll record here.

This article says how to use google contacts as you can manage it on IOS and Android smartphones.

ElasticSearch as used by Hotelstonight

Atrial Fibrillation detection defined

2016/01/05

This post on 9to5mac has this response which explains a lot!

Atrial fibrillation with a rapid ventricular response is not appropriately measured/monitored with a photoplethysmogram. The nature of atrial fibrillation is that the beats are irregular, and with a very fast rate the individual beats will not reliably perfuse the extremities, at least not to a level that can be consistently detected by an external device. It is a case of having the wrong tool for the job, rather than the tool functioning incorrectly. The best tool for the job is an implantable loop recorder–this measures continuous cardiac electrical activity (ECG) and will readily detect A-fib with RVR.
