That’s all changed this year, with a slew of new product announcements from video manufacturers: cameras, recorders and displays. So you can expect more and more 4K content to start appearing (like this year’s World Cup). When 4K displays first appeared, they were tens of thousands of dollars.

10 Keyboard shortcuts to boost your productivity

Keyboard shortcuts are easy to learn and can really boost your productivity. With a bit of practice, they will even become second nature. Once you master some keyboard calisthenics, you’ll be slashing through spreadsheets, controlling content and burning through budgets. Here are 10 shortcuts to add to your computer arsenal. Note: if you’re a Mac user, the Control key in Windows translates to a Command key in Mac OS. 1. Ctrl+X, Ctrl+C, Ctrl+V The fundamental Cut (Ctrl-X), Copy (Ctrl-C) and Paste (Ctrl-V) commands are at the very core of your interactions with your computer and are an indispensable time-saver. Make these your best friend and you’ll get things done a lot quicker.   2. Ctrl+A Use this to select everything.
