Pluto Trigger is a high-speed smart camera trigger that is controlled through a free iPhone or Android app via Bluetooth. It is a very practical gadget, highly appreciated by DIY and commercial photographers who are involved in specialized projects with specific requests.

The Pluto Trigger can be used for remote shooting, time lapse, High Dynamic Range Photography, video recording, lighting photography and many other things. The reason why it is called a ‘’trigger’’ is simply because it is activated by light, sound, or anything that breaks the laser beam aimed in the direction of the Pluto Trigger.

About a year ago we reviewed the QNAP TVS-473 which is very closely related to this model. So in this article we’ll focus mostly on what’s different from the model we wrote about before.

The TVS-673e is the middle brother in the brand-new QNAP TVS-x73e series. The line-up of these high-performance SMB NAS units consist of the TVS-873e (8-bay), TVS-673e (6-bay) and QNAP TVS-473e (4-bay) models (the first number indicating the number of bays).

Okay, so what’s the “e” stand for in the TVS-673e?

Could be for Enhanced (more features) or Economy (fewer features) than the 473 we had on the bench earlier?

What’s the most important asset for most businesses? People, products or premises will probably make your shortlist. How about Data?
It’s alright to pump all your data into “the Cloud” and hope that it will be secure and uncompromised but how about at least having access to your own data in your own company at the local level? In other words, having it on a Networked Attached Storage (NAS) system.

Written by Martin Regtien on . Posted in Appliances

Read more: Miele Blizzard CX1 Comfort – Australian Review of the Revolutionary Miele...I must say I felt conflicted when Miele announced their first bagless vacuum cleaner earlier this year.

After all, Miele build their reputation as one of the world’s top vacuum cleaner manufacturers for the past century, spruiking the benefits, indeed the necessity, of making a bag an integral part of their cleaning process.

And now they announce a bagless vacuum? Have Miele created the best of the bagless bunch?
It certainly is a futuristic-looking machine....

Follow me as I dragged the Blizzard CX1 through the office and our house.
