Nokia takes on iPhone 5, Galaxy S3 in latest Lumia video

The company's video follows a roller coaster and compares the latest Lumia's video accuracy with that of the iPhone 5 and Galaxy S3.Nokia's Lumia 928

Nokia is taking the fight to Samsung and Apple in a new video posted to YouTube.
Dubbed "The Hurricane," the video follows a roller coaster going around its track as it's being filmed by Nokia's new Lumia handset, the Lumia 928, as well as the iPhone 5 and Galaxy S3. Thanks to the handset's 8.7-megapixel PureView camera, Nokia argues, visuals will be much better when recording video.
After showing the roller coaster moving around the track, Nokia's video compares frames to those captured by the iPhone 5 and Galaxy S3. It's clear, based on those frames, that the PureView takes the top spot, but whether it was truly a fair comparison is unknown.Photos leaked earlier this week of the Lumia 928. Nokia hasn't officially revealed all the details on the device, and has instead decided to slowly offer up some details.
Interestingly, Nokia compares the Lumia 928's camera to that of the Galaxy S3 and not Samsung's latest handset, the Galaxy S4. It might be interesting to see how those two devices match up in a similar ride on the roller coaster.
Here's the video Nokia has posted to its site:

'Star Trek II' producer talks Ceti Eel, J.J. Abrams, and more (Q&A)

Robert Sallin, producer of "Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan," shares his experience working on the film, looks at the future of "Trek," and dishes on whether that was Ricardo Montalban's real chest.

The release of "Star Trek Into Darkness" has not only spurred interest in the "Trek" world in general, but especially in its film daddy, the original Khan-as-villain movie "Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan." While the new film takes quite a few detours, it is full of homages to the earlier work. Let's look back to 1982. "Star Trek: The Motion Picture" had been released in 1979 and faced a poor critical reception. Paramount, the film's studio, was gun-shy after the movie nearly doubled its original budget, ending up with a $46 million price tag. Nonetheless, plans for a second movie plodded along. It's 30, 40 years later and we have new audiences. You can't keep dwelling on the old guys and the old things. It has…

How to boot directly to the desktop in Windows 8.1

The Windows 8 Start screen is a good starting point for Windows 8 devices with touch screens, but on PCs with standard screens, you might prefer to boot directly to the desktop. Previously, you could bypass the Windows 8 Start screen with Start8, but Windows 8.1 now lets you do it natively. Here's how:
Step 1: Right-click on the Windows 8.1 taskbar, then choose Properties.
Step 2: Click on the Navigation tab, then under the Start screen section, check the box next to "Go to the desktop instead of Start when I sign in."



The next time you boot Windows 8.1, you'll go straight to the desktop without ever seeing the Start screen.

Roku's speedy streamer is the best box yetThe good:The Roku 3's excellent new interface and faster processor makes it feel quicker and more responsive than any other streaming box. More than 750 channels are supported, including Netflix, Amazon Instant, HBO Go, Hulu Plus, Pandora, MLB.TV, Amazon Cloud Player, and Vudu. It also has cross-platform search that scours several major TV and movie services to find content. And Roku's nifty new remote has a built-in headphone jack that lets you listen without disturbing others. The bad:There's still no official YouTube channel. Some services have an outdated interface on Roku compared to other streamers. The Apple TV still works better within the Apple ecosystem. And the Roku 3 isn't a great option if you're mostly looking to stream your personal digital media collection. The bottom line:The Roku 3 is the best streaming-video box yet, with tons of content sources, lightning-fast performance, and an innovative remote wit…
