At 25 pages per minute, Epson’s new DS-320 document scanner is the fastest in its class. Built for professionals on the go, the portable scanner can be plugged into a wall or powered straight over a USB connection. It also features a 20-page automatic document feeder and one-pass duplex scanning, perfect for digitizing business cards and other print materials that would otherwise have to be carried with you.

In addition to saving documents to a user’s computer, the scanner can upload them directly to various cloud services, including Evernote, Google Drive, Dropbox, and more. Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software can create searchable PDFs and editable Microsoft Word files from text documents, while the included Epson Document Capture software has additional features for digitizing photos, including automatic image clean up, cropping, and color enhancement. Users who would prefer to use their existing document management software with the DS-320 can do so thanks to TWAIN driver support.

Epson describes the scanner as being able to handle a wide variety of media types that road warriors are likely to come across, from paper receipts to stiff ID tags, with ease. Business cards collected from events can be scanned stacks at a time and organized with the included Presto! BizCard software. At 8.5 inches wide, the DS-320 can handle most common document sizes down to a minimum of 2 by 2.75 inches. It can also receive panoramic media up to 44 inches long. It has an optical resolution of 600 dots per inch (1,200 with interpolation) and 48-bit color input (24-bit output).

At 11 inches wide by 3.5 inches deep and just 2 inches tall, the scanner is also well suited to a home office or event space where desk space is limited. It will be available later this month from select retailers and for $299.

How to tell if your webcam has been hacked

Having your webcam hacked is a terrifying prospect for many -- and a good reason to use a dedicated webcam cover. Not only does it represent an incredible invasion of privacy, but it has the potential to grab biometric data and other personal information that could be used to further expose you and steal your identity.

Often a hacked webcam is just part of a comprehensive malware assault, though, so protecting yourself against it involves having some of the best antivirus protection you can, while keeping your system updated. Even with robust protections in place, though, you should always keep an eye out for the tell-tale signs of a hacked webcam. Here's what to look out for.

Built from the ground up to give players the world over a community forum to live-stream through, it’s the kind of content hub that’s great when you want it, but maybe one of the first things you want to walk away from when you’re taking a break from your PC and consoles.

How I unlocked the hidden modes of DLSS
dlss hidden modes dt respec

Nvidia's Deep Learning Super Sampling (DLSS) has become a mainstay in modern PC games. We all know about the basic presets to choose from in games that set the quality level and tip the scales toward performance or image quality.

But under the surface, there are a range of hidden presets that make DLSS behave in different ways. These are how developers tweak how DLSS reacts to a given input resolution and specific game content. They aren't meant to be user-facing, but a clever mod allowed me to open up the hood of DLSS and get my hands dirty. Not only do these hidden presets provide far more customization,  but they also reveal how DLSS really works.
