Fujifilm Instax Mini Link Review

Fujifilm Instax Mini Link Review The Instax Mink Link replaces the Instax Share Smartphone Printer SP-2 as Fujifilm's mini film printer - with a few additional social features
Should I Buy The Instax Mini Link?
Are all the features on this device necessary? Probably not. But there's definitely something fun to explore with the Instax Mini Link that other instant printers don't offer - though the lack of social media integration is something that the company should definitely rethink.
Overall this is a simple printer to use, offering great quality photos for the user with customisable options for a more creative experience. However, if these fluffy features aren't of any interest, we recommend spending that little bit more for a camera-printer hybrid.

If You’re Using An iPhone 5 You Need To Update The Software Now

Image: Apple
A GPS reset pattern means you need to keep on top of software updates to avoid any problems

Apple has added a support page to its website advising anyone using an iPhone to update to the latest software version, which for that device is iOS 10.3.4.  The company warns that failure to do so might result in the phone failing to function.

The iPhone 5 came out in 2012, so there won’t be too many people still using it. But clearly there are still some of you out there, so listen up. Apple said:


“Starting just before 12:00 a.m. UTC on November 3, 2019,* iPhone 5 will require an iOS update to maintain accurate GPS location and to continue to use functions that rely on correct date and time including App Store, iCloud, email, and web browsing. This is due to the GPS time rollover issue that began affecting GPS-enabled products from other manufacturers on April 6, 2019. Affected Apple devices are not impacted until just before 12:00 a.m. UTC on November 3, 2019.”

This GPS bug, which is not exclusive to Apple devices, has been likened to the date change malfunctions made famous by the Millennium Bug.

If you don’t update to the last possible iOS version, your iPhone will struggle with the date rollover and you might find you can’t use a lot of the core functions of your phone. As detailed by The Verge, the bug derives from the fact GPS devices measure time using a weekly counter that annoyingly can only count to 1,024. The bug affects this because a GPS reset was due on 6 April, but as it states above, doesn’t affect Apple devices until 3 November.

It’s good practice to keep your devices’ software up to date no matter what though, particularly for smartphones. Apple keeps most iPhones four to five years old up to date with the latest version of iOS, which is exceptional. The seven-year-old iPhone 5 will be feeling the strain a bit stuck back on iOS 10, but this latest point update should keep your trusty phone going a bit longer.

Danger Close 2019 Sinhala Subtitles

Synopsis
South Vietnam, late afternoon on August 18, 1966 - for three and a half hours, in the pouring rain, amid the mud and shattered trees of a rubber plantation called Long Tan, Major Harry Smith and his dispersed company of 108 young and mostly inexperienced Australian and New Zealand soldiers are fighting for their lives, holding off an overwhelming enemy force of 2,500 battle hardened Main Force Viet Cong and North Vietnamese Army soldiers. With their ammunition running out, their casualties mounting and the enemy massing for a final assault each man begins to search for his own answer - and the strength to triumph over an uncertain future with honor, decency and courage. The Battle of Long Tan is one of the most savage and decisive engagements in ANZAC history, earning both the United States and South Vietnamese Presidential Unit Citations for gallantry along with many individual awards. But not before 18 Australians and more than 245 Vietnamese are killed.

OnePlus 7T Pro Review

The OnePlus 7T Pro is official, and while we love it, we can't wholeheartedly recommend it. Find out why in our full review.
Should I Buy The OnePlus 7T Pro?
The OnePlus 7T Pro boasts an excellent 90Hz display, a powerful chipset capable of a high-end gaming experience and a great triple-camera setup that performs well in most conditions. But, with such a similar offering to the cheaper OnePlus 7T, the 7T Pro is amongst the best smartphones that we can't wholeheartedly recommend.
