Nový weblog v AKA MONITORu

V červnu 2015 byl zřízen nový weblog, RASPBERRY Pi, věnovaný mikropočitači Raspberry Pi 2 Model B (RPi2B), případně jeho dalším verzím.
Na první pohled velmi úzké téma - ale opravdu jen na první pohled. Uvedený mikropočítač představuje nový trend ve vývoji počítačů, nový, překvapivě výkonný a při tom levný nástroj, umožňující velmi široké uplatnění v tradičních a zejména v nových aplikačních oblastech. Stačí se zmínit o úloze, kterou může hrát v nejaktuálnější oblasti, označované jako IoT - Interner of Things - Internet věcí. Weblog bude přinášet informace o nových zdrojích informací - především webových - týkajících se RPi2B. Weblog je určen pro širší okruh zájemců o konkrétní mikropočítač, způsoby a oblasti jeho možného uplatnění.

EASEUS Partition Manager ( EPM ) www.easeus.com )je přehledný nástroj pro vytváření, editaci a správu diskových oddílů. Uživatel může měnit název i velikost již vytvořených oddílů. EPM spolupracuje se souborovými systémy NTSF i FAT 16/32. S  programem EPM snadno zvládnete všechny standardní operace při správě pevných disků a jejich oddílů, jako je instalace nových disků, vytváření a změna velikosti oddílů nebo jejich spojování či rozdělování. Připravení průvodci vám pomohou s klonováním oddílů i celých disků nebo se záchranou ztracených dat.  Program má snadné ovládání pomocí intuitivního průvodce a před samotným obnovením je zobrazen přehledný seznam souborů, které je možné obnovit.
Pro EaseUs Partition Master platí totéž, co pro EaseUs Data Recovery Wizard. 
Postupně jsem vyzkoušel všechny deklarované funkce a byl jsem velmi příjemně překvapen. Pro  mnohé produkty z této aplikační oblasti je charakteristická náročnost na odbornou zdatnost uživatele  a značné riziko nežádoucích, obtížně obnovitelných změn. V případě programu EPM, má uživatel výborný přehled o připravovaných a prováděných změnách a má zajištěnu dopředu deklarovanou návratnost původního stavu. Je to další  produkt z této oblasti, u kterého jsem byl při práci klidný, jelikož jsem byl dobře veden a u kterého jsem měl jistotu o  návratnosti všech prováděných změn. Všechna moje očekávání program bez výjímky splnil.
Následuje podrobnější charakteristika produktu v angličtině:
Main features:
- Extend C drive (system partition) without data loss
- Migrate OS from HDD to SSD without reinstalling
- Convert MBR disk to GPT disk and vice versa

- Resize dynamic volume - EPM helps you resize a dynamic volume, including simple volume, mirrored volume, spanned volume, striped volume and RAID 5 volume easily.
- Merge operation - When a partition is out of use, you would want to merge two adjacent partitions as single larger one. Then there will be more free space to use. 
- Clone disk wizard - There are two features for you to clone hard disk, Copy disk and Upgrade disk.
- Copy disk - EPM enables to successfully transfer all on-disk information including standard bootstrap code and other system service structures, thus maintaining the operating system’s working capability. Upgrade disk - copy system disk to a new larger hard disk only. 
- Partition copy - Copying single partition to an unallocated space, it is often used to back up data for security reasons.
- Dynamic volume copy- This feature copies dynamic volume to unallocated space on basic disk. After copying is completed, the dynamic volume will be changed into basic disk.
- Migrate OS to SSD/HDD . This feature transfers Windows partitions from one hard disk to another.
- Convert FAT to NTFS -  NTFS has several improvements over FAT and HPFS such as improved support for metadata and the use of advanced data structures
to improve performance, reliability, and disk space utilization, plus additional extensions.
- Convert primary to logical - This operation is for converting a primary volume to a logical volume and applies to basic disks with MBR partition scheme.
- Convert dynamic disk to basic - This feature allows you to convert a dynamic disk containing simple volumes or mirrored volumes into a basic one while keeping its content intact.
- Delete partition - once the partition has been deleted, its space is added to the unallocated disk space.
- Wipe - Wipe partition/disk can erase all the data on the partition/disk. Comparing to deleting partition, after wiping partition/disk, the data cannot be recovered any longer.

- Repair RAID 5 dynamic volume. When the hard disk of RAID 5 dynamic volume goes wrong or if you want to replace the old hard disk with a larger one, you need to repair the RAID 5 volume.
- Rebuild MBR - Once MBR (Master Boot Record) of disk is damaged, system cannot be booted. This feature will rewrite the Master Boot Record of the selected disk without destroying the disk partition table.
- Partition recovery wizard - Partition Recovery Wizard is an easy-to-use tool, with which you can recover volumes from the unallocated space on a basic MBR/GPT disk that were accidentally deleted or damaged due a hardware or software failure.
- Recovering volumes in automatic mode - The automatic mode is easy to use and requires minimal effort. The program will try to find and recover all the deleted volumes on all basic disks
- Recovering volumes in manual mode - The manual recovery mode lets you take full advantage of the volume recovery. You will be able to specify the searching method, disks to search on, and volumes to recover.
- Set active - If you have several primary partitions, you must specify one to be the boot partition.

Abelssoft Youtube Song Download - Review

Programů pro stahování obsahu z Youtube existuje celá řada. Nedávno jsem objevil program Youtube Song Download od  firmy Abelssoft, který se mi hned napoprve zalíbil svoji jednoduchostí, líbivým designem a rychlostí práce. Umožňuje vyhledání jednotlivých hudebních nebo video souborů, umí vyhledávat i v databází alb. Po zadání klíčového slova či věty, se objeví tabulka se všemi nalezenými položkami. Nalezenou písničku nebo video si můžete ihned přehrát, nebo si je lze stánout z webu a to jednotlivě hudbu, video nebo oboje současně. Uživatel si může snadno nastavit několik parametrů. Nabízí se i přehlídka již stažených souborů, které si opět můžete i zde přehrát, nebo si můžete editovat jejich tagy. Program umí přesně to, co uživatel potřebuje, nic méně a nic zbytečného. Program stojí za pozornost všech, kdo si chtějí jednoduše a legálně přehrávat obsah youtube, koncerty počínaje, přes moderní hudbu, až po písničky pro děti.

MAGISTO - review

MAGISTOwww.magisto.com ) is a new breed of free online video-editing systems: it's fully automated, and fast.  All users need to do is upload a video to Magisto, choose a title and soundtrack, and then hit edit. In seconds, Magisto analyzes raw, unedited video footage for the best segments and turns all of it - up to 10 video clips to make a Movie up to 75 seconds long in BASIC and up to 30 photos and 30 videos to make a 2.5 minute Movie in PREMIUM version - into short movies with music and effects (transitions, split-screens, titles, wipes) that can be shared with friends and family over social channels like Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, or e-mail.
- People from the Magisto team are saying: "Our mission is to make it as easy as possible for our users to create personal Movies that not only tell stories, but elicit an emotional response as well.We help users accomplish this feat in just a matter of clicks with our patent-pending artificial intelligence technology, Emotion Sense."
- I would like to recommend, first of all, to look at some examples of edited videos, which Magisto team demostrates on the web. Please click here: http://www.magisto.com/featured-videos
Now, when you know what  I am speaking about, I can cntinue with the explanation.
- Magistos Emotion Sense Technology allows users to collaborate with artificial intelligence to ensure that their Movie elicits the right sort of emotional response - users provide Magisto with footage and supply emotional direction through choice of music and video style and Magisto bring their footage to life in a Movie that not only compiles the best moments of uploaded footage, but also captures a mood.
- Algoritms of the MAGISTO take a virtual look at all of the video and photographs and breaks down analysis on three levels - visual analysis, audio analysis and storytelling.
- On the visual side of things, Magisto analyzes everything from in-frame action to camera motion, face detection and indexing, object detection and tracking, facial recognition and more. This helps Magisto understand which parts of the uploaded footage are the most interesting, and also helps to determine whether video footage needs to be stabilized, color corrected or maximized in some other way.
- Audio analysis detects speech, classifies the different types of audio within uploaded footage, analyzes the selected music track and determines how each of these elements will best work together to tell your story.
-Then, the artificial intelligence begins to construct a script for the final cut of the Movie. Magisto understands who your main characters are, what the topic of your Movie is and more and, based on this information paired with the video style selected, use emotion guided editing techniques to edit your Movie togetherMAGISTO delves deep into your content and "understand" the media you have uploaded, Magistos algorithms are able to determine which are the most interesting and share-worthy moments, as well as determine the most effective way to edit these moments together to tell your story.
- Magisto have built a collection of Editing Styles that users can select to determine the style and mood of their Movie. The Editing Style denotes the type of effects you'll get, but it also serves as a roadmap for the algorithm, telling it how to treat your footage, from the editing speed to the mood and general look and feel of your produced movie. The effects, transitions, editing  speed and more all contribute to the emotional mood of your Movie.Magisto is constantly updating our service with new Editing Styles.
- When you select a song to play in your Movie, Magisto is  sure to apply the mood and tempo of that particular song to your edit. The edited video is be properly synchronized to the music, both in terms of cuts, time-warping effects and more, and that the speed and style of the editing will fit that particular song to a T.
- Magisto doesn't simply plop your video clips and photos down in a timeline and call it a day. Magisto incorporates professional effects and transitions that help tell your story in a unique and eye-catching way—zooming in on important actions, panning to give movement to static shots, lowering the volume of the music when someone is talking,  incorporate color-correction, image stabilization and other image enhancement technologies to ensure that your pictures and video footage look as good as possible.
