Time Spent On Screens Can Affect Eyesight
London: The British spend an average of 11 hours a day looking at screens, reveals a new survey, stressing on its detrimental effects on the eyesight - reduced blink rate and tear evaporation.


People are spending an increasing number of hours staring into their computer, mobile, TV, tablet and e-reader screens, indicates the survey, conducted on over 2,000 British people by Spectrum Thea eye care specialists, reports femalefirst.co.uk.


The respondents were aged between 16 and 24.


Over half of the respondents, 54.4 percent of people polled to be precise, agreed that they had suffered from symptoms associated with conditions like Dry Eye and Blepharitis.


They said that in a week they only spend 12 hours 58 minutes in quality time with their families, 10 hours and 16 minutes looking at their partner and a meagre 5 hours 44 minutes walking around outdoors.


According to the research, an increased concentration on reading, playing computer games and watching videos can reduce a person's blink rate by a third. This reduced blinking can lead to a higher rate of tear evaporation, which can result in dry eye syndrome and further complications.


"The sheer amount that people are now spending looking at screens is worryingly high," said Sarah Farrant, dry eye specialist and partner at Earlam and Christopher Optometrists, Taunton.


"While many people may not think the symptoms associated with these common eye complaints are serious, if left untreated, these conditions can become chronic and, in some cases, can lead to permanent damage to your eyes," Farrant added.

Gold or champagne-colored iPhone 5S

With the speculation moving from unsubstantiated rumor into the zone of credibility as manufacturing ramps up and the product launch nears, it appears that Apple CEO Tim Cook will unveil a gold or champagne-colored iPhone 5S. Several sources are confirming the gold-toned iPhone 5S will be part of the September 10 event.
Gold is not an entirely new color for Apple products, but the iPhone has been cast in black and white since its inception. The company produced a gold iPod Mini, and the latest batch of iPods includes a yellow version that borders on gold.

The lows and highs of small Android tablets

At the Google press breakfast where the company unveiled the new Nexus 7 -- Google's first product franchise with "the new" Apple-esque branding -- the company made sure to highlight the many benefits of the 2013 product compared with its earlier foray into the tablet space.
The successor is faster, lighter, thinner, narrower, and runs a more up-to-date version of Android. But despite being a follow-up to a successful product in a white-hot category, its thunder was stolen by the Chromecast -- the small and cheap one-trick pony trying to solve the problem of streaming video and other media. It was as if Apple TV had grabbed the spotlight at the launch of a new iPad.
When the first Nexus 7 was introduced last year, it represented a powerful device in a compact form factor at a price that challenged similarly sized tablets from Amazon and Barnes & Noble. Unlike those e-readers, though, it offered full access to the Google Play store.

Sigma's lens conversion service promotes body agnosticism

One frustrating lock-in for interchangeable-lens camera systems is having to give up the expensive stable of lenses you've amassed when you switch to a different camera manufacturer -- other than Micro Four Thirds, supported by Olympus and Panasonic, each company has its own proprietary mount. There are mount conversion adapters, but you frequently take a hit on capabilities or performance when you use them. Sigma, on a roll with new and excellent lenses that fall under its "Global Vision" marketing strategy (the ones labeled Contemporary, Art, or Sports), adds another compelling reason to buy with its Mount Conversion Service. Sigma's MCS lets you -- for a fee ranging from $80 to $250 -- convert any of these newer lenses to another mount, as long as that mount exists for the lens. So, for example, you could convert the full-frame 35mm F1.4 DG Art from/to a Canon EF, Nikon FX, Sony A, Pentax K or Sigma mount, but not to a Sony E, because that mount isn't offered for this lens.

Ubuntu Edge dual-boots Android, seeks $32M

Ubuntu creator British company Canonical wants to bring the dual-booting Edge to fruition by raising a whopping 21.5 million pounds ($32 million) in a month on Indiegogo. It claims this is the biggest target ever for a crowdfunded campaign. The campaign intends to produce 40,000 units; if you want to own an Edge of your very own, you'll get a handset if you pledge 394 pounds ($600) today, or 532 pounds ($830) thereafter.

Twitter creator finally learns Facebook, suggests monthly fee

Twitter co-founder Biz Stone is long gone working on secret new projects, and apparently the return to the creative process has inspired a must-share idea he thinks can solve one-time competitor Facebook's revenue-generating woes.
Stone said that after finally learning to love Facebook -- he needs to use it to communicate with his new co-workers -- he believes the social network should offer people a choice to pay $10 a month to avoid ads. Because ads, which the company he used to run also uses to keep that service free, totally suck.
