Imax vs Dolby Vision

Image
I was asked over the holiday which is the better one, IMAX® and Dolby Cinema™. I'm not going to compare 3D options in these two, but let's look at what you can expect from your money. In both cases, the experience is being managed and guaranteed by the license holder, so you are guaranteed a good experience regardless.

I'm also going to compare two versions of IMAX® because they have been around for a while and this means you could end up in a film version of the cinema. The Dolby™cinemas are newer and are a partnership with Christie, so they are digital.

Android and IOS Emulators on MacOS

Having to develop applications for Android and IOS on MacOS outside of the respective IDE's, it can be annoying to get the emulators up without launching the IDE's.

I'm not going to explain how to get the emulators configured, those are well documented, but rather just give the command to launch them.
