Garo Tchakatian

(Top)
Garo Tchakarian has been helping Tastar in our ColorCentral demo room for the last few years. When he's in the demo room, he loves doing everything - running test prints on screen printing film, running demo prints for customers, testing various media (he used an awful lot of the Hahnemühle Hemp), working with color calibration and software RIPs and anything else that keeps him in touch with his roots in photography.

Garo is an accomplished photographer, and has recently scanned a few of his old negatives from photos that he took when he was in his home country. He was born in Sofia, Bulgaria and has been a photographer since 1975. During all of those years of creative activity, he has received over 15 international awards.

We would like to take this opportunity to display a few of these photographs. More of his photography can be found on his website.

iFixit's 2020 Top 5 Most Repairable Devices

Guess what isn't on this list - any current Apple computer. When you look at iFixit's Laptop Repairability Guide, new Mac notebooks are at the bottom of the list - generally at a 1 or 2 out of 10 maximum points. HP notebooks, by comparison, generally are at a 9 or 10 out of a 10 rating.

Apple, please make your computers repairable!

Types of USB/ Thunderbolt Ports
08/29/2020

(Top)
Ports on a typical new pc notebook: USB-C 3.2 Gen 1/DisplayPort (Power Delivery); USB 3.2 Gen 1 (PowerShare); USB 3.2 Gen 1; USB 2.0. Ports on a 7 year old pc notebook: 2 x USB 2.0; 2 x USB 3.0; USB 2.0/eSATA. Ports on a new Apple MacBook Pro: 4 x USB-C 3.1 Gen 2, Thunderbolt 3, DisplayPort.

Our Guide to Ports

USB Type A: also known as USB standard A connector, the USB A connector is primarily be used on host controllers in computers and hubs. USB-A socket is designed to provide a "downstream" connection intended for host controllers and hubs, rarely implemented as an "upstream" connector on a peripheral device.

USB Type B: also known as USB standard B connector, the B style connector is designed to connect to USB peripherals, such as a printer, upstream port on hub, or other larger peripheral devices.



USB Micro B-1: the micro USB B connector essentially a scaled down form of the mini USB which allowed mobile devices to get slimmer while still maintaining the ability to connect to computers and other hubs.



USB 3.0 Micro B: also referenced as the SuperSpeed Micro USB B connector, this connector stacks five more pins on the side of the USB 2.0 Micro B connector to achieve the full USB 3.0 standard data transfer speed. USB 3.0 Micro B connectors are found on hard drives, digital cameras, cell phones, and other USB 3.0 devices.

USB 3.0 Type A (USB 3.2 Gen 1): inheriting the same design to the A-Type connector used in USB 2.0 & USB 1.1 application, USB 3.0 A is also provides a "downstream" connection that is designed for use only on host controllers and hubs. It has a maximum throughput of 5Gbps.


USB 3.0 Type B: the USB 3.0 B-Type connector is designed for USB peripherals, such as a printer, upstream port on hub, or other larger peripheral devices.



USB Type C or USB 3.1 (USB 3.2 Gen 2): the USB-C or USB Type-C connector is the newest USB interface came to the market along with the new USB 3.1 standard. USB Type C connector is compatible with USB 2.0, 3.0, 3.1 Gen 1 and Gen 2 signals.


Thunderbolt: Thunderbolt 1 (10Gbps) and Thunderbolt 2 (20Gbps) support bi-directional data transfer capability and power delivery for bus-powered devices.



Thunderbolt 3: Fully compatible with your USB 3.2 Gen 2 devices. The Thunderbolt 3 USB-C cable supports data transfer rates up to 40Gbps when connected to a Thunderbolt 3 device, enabling lightning fast performance. When connected to a USB C device, this cable supports rates of 20Gbps.


Computer Improvements?
08/09/2020

New Apple 27 inch iMac:

From appleinsider.com: The latest update to the 27-inch iMac included the T2 chip, which handles encryption and security on the computer. Because the SSD is fixed to the logic board for hardware encryption, changing the logic board will erase all data on the drive, and changing the drive is impossible for the same reason.

Our take: just like the MacBook Pros, etc. the SSD is soldered to the logic board. If there is a problem with the board, the user will more than likely loose all of their data - just like with the MacBook Pros. And, if the drive fails or you outgrow it's storage capabilities, replace the computer, not just an inexpensive drive. There is plenty of room inside of the iMac for a mount for the drive. This is a definite attack on serviceabilty and upgradeability.

HP ZBook FireFly:

Taking a play from the Apple playbook, the new HP FireFly 14 has two interesting features: provided memory is soldered and not upgradeable, and there are only a few ports (and no LAN port). It's actually heavier than the equivalent HP EliteBook, so why did they sacrifice upgeadeability and flexability - to force a quicker upgrade to a new computer?

Lenovo ThinkPad T495S:

Another notebook taking a play from the Apple playbook, the Lenovo ThinkPad T495S has soldered memory, so don't outgrow the amount of memory that it is included at purchase (do applications get larger memory appetites as time moves forward?).
