October 17, 2014
The small, lightweight AAXA P3X Pico Projector ($249) can project media files from a memory card or USB thumb drive, or mirror what's showing on your computer's display. It's a good choice if you need to show content when you're out of reach of a wall socket, but overall image quality is merely adequate. This DLP-based projector has an LED light source, rated at 70 lumens of brightness, and a native wide 480p, aka WVGA (854-by-480) resolution. It can be powered either from the included AC adapter or its built-in lithium ion battery, which according to AAXA should last at least 2 hours on a single charge.

Northern Virginia Real Estate Company Pasquali Realty Group Offers Tips To Homeowner's To Avoid Frozen Pipes This Winter.
October 16, 2014
  Burke, VA (PRWEB) October 16, 2014           Homeowners sometimes need to deal with frozen pipes during cold stretches during the winter months.   Pasquali Realty Group, a Northern Virginia real estate company suggests the following tips to protect their household plumbing from freezing:         -- Allow room heat to freely circulate around meters and water pipes. Meters and pipes installed in an enclosed area or cabinet, or on an outside cellar wall restricted from heat circulation, can result in freeze-ups when outside temperatures drop below freezing.           -- Seal cracks or holes in windows, walls or doors near the meter or pipes. Outside air from a crack or small hole can quickly cause a freeze-up, particularly if high outside winds create a further chilling effect. This type of freezing can occur even though the rest of the room may be considerably above freezing.     -- Wrap pipes with insulation. Insulating pipes is helpful when basement temperatures are reduced because of lower thermostat settings, an energy efficient furnace or use of a wood stove or other sources of heat. Check the insulation regularly to make sure it stays dry. Wet insulation can freeze and damage the pipes it was intended to protect.           -- Consider placing a small heater near pipes located in a particularly vulnerable location when the forecast is for bitter cold temperatures.

Favi J6-LED-Pico Projector With AirPlay and Miracast
October 10, 2014
The Favi J6-LED-Pico Projector with AirPlay and Miracast ($349) is a good companion for a smartphone or tablet. This pico projector allows wireless projection of content from the screens of Miracast-certified devices (primarily ones running Android), no Wi-Fi network required. It can also project content from iOS devices, though setup is a little trickier. Anatomy of a Micro-Projector Pico projectors are generally defined as those that can comfortably fit into a shirt pocket. The J6 is large as such, sticking out of my pocket like a nerd pack. Nonetheless, it's still tiny, measuring 0.6 by 5.7 by 3.1 inches (HWD). It's similar in size to the Editors' Choice AAXA P4-X Pico Projector , although it's thinner. It weighs a mere 7.3 ounces. It comes with a small power adapter that connects via a USB cable. Inside is a 4,000mAh rechargeable battery that Favi says can project for 2 hours between charges.

Driveability Corner

FULL TEXT Finding and fixing evaporative system leaks can be challenging. How you conduct your diagnostic tests and the equipment you use can directly affect the results. In the August column I discussed the issues associated with testing under pressure vs. testing under vacuum. Older smoke machines used pressure and a flow gauge for testing; newer machines have a vacuum/pressure gauge and a throttle/valve assembly. The photo below shows my pressure/vacuum gauge and plumbing setup:
