With the constant progression and ubiquity of the traditional television, the development of the modern projector is something which rarely sees significant media attention. The truth is that the projector has seen vast improvements over recent years and today stands quite legitimately as a strong contender for pride of place in your living room.
Here, we’ll take a quick look at a few factors which contribute towards the argument for choosing a modern projector over a traditional television set.
Due to their constant development, the price of televisions very rarely falls. Today, if you’re after a television set that can offer a true cinematic experience – let’s say, anything over 36” – then you’re accepting a price tag well into three figures. And that’s before you’ve considered adding any extra features such as TV stands, speakers or accessories.
Projectors are able to offer a viewing experience that far surpasses that of a television. For the …
Running can be two things depending on the person: therapeutic or challenging. While this is true, I think we can all agree on one thing: A great playlist can make all the difference in the world when getting your workout on. Becoming motivated by hearing your favorite song allows you to tune out your surroundings, focusing on getting your heart rate up and reaching your goal. While creating the perfect playlist is instrumental in this, having a top-of-the-line pair of headphones is most important, because there’s nothing more annoying than having your music play unclearly when you’re trying to run. When making the decision on which pair is best for you, consider certain features: the comfort level desired, sound quality, style, and obviously your price-point. It’s recommended to search online for cheap headphones as oftentimes, you’ll find offers that can’t be beat.
Just like your go-to workout outfit, you want your headphones to fit …
There’s no denying the fact that OLED TVs are causing a stir in the technology world, but how do they compare to LED TVs? If you’re shopping for a new TV, you obviously want the best money can buy. That doesn’t necessarily mean that the most expensive TV will be the best choice. While OLED TVs do have their advantages, they also have some drawbacks. Whether it’s picture quality or size, you need to carefully consider your options before spending your hard-earned money. The following will give you a better idea of how OLED TVs stack up against LED TVs.
There’s no debating the fact that OLED TVs have a superior picture quality over any other type of TV technology. The contrast in blacks and whites, the color and brightness are all top of the line and make the viewing experience as close to real life as TV has ever come. That’s not …
Despite advances in automotive technology, more people are turning to bicycles. Bikes offer a simplicity that automobiles cannot match, and the overall cost of using a bike is far lower than the cost of using a car. For those who live in urban areas, bikes can often offer the same speed of cars, and they allow users to exercise while they commute. This renewed interest is spawning a considerable amount of new technology and new types of bicycles; here are a few future developments that will likely come to bikes.
Portability A popular trend that will likely see some commercial use in the coming years is portable bikes. These bikes can be folded multiple times, which allows them to be placed in duffel bags and backpacks. Current models of portable bikes have some disadvantages; they often have small wheels, which can make the ride bumpier, and they lack the ruggedness of traditional bikes. Still, …

Does it sometimes seem you could spend all day on social media and never get around to your real job? Join the club.

The free exposure that sites like Facebook, Twitter and Google + offer is extraordinary; however, such sites can demand all of your time and energy if you’re not careful. Fortunately, there’s a way to get ahead of social media demands so you’re acting and not just reacting.

Have you ever had to call your tax professional to make an appointment to bring in your tax documents?
For many years I did what my husband had told me to do with our taxes – take them to the accountant’s office. I’d gather up all of the tax forms and documents that we had and drive a half-hour to her office. Always punctual, I’d check in with the receptionist and be told to take a seat in the waiting room to be called. After waiting for at least twenty minutes, I’d be called into the inner office. Once inside the inner office, there would be brief conversation, a promise to “get right on it” and a quick dismissal. And then the drive home to wait. And wait. And wait some more. Weeks would go by. Finally, just a day or two before the deadline to file, the telephone would ring.
“Your tax return is …
Health and medical apps offer variety of features for doctors, medical students and the general application. A study conducted in May 2012 by Manhattan Research suggested that 62 percent of doctors in the U.S already had some kind of tablet device, a figure that has doubled since 2011.
Though these apps don’t replace doctors and medical consultants, they can greatly enhance knowledge levels. They also allow the user to keep track of and collate medical information, which can then be easily transmitted to medical malpractice lawyers in the event of a medical error warranting legal action.
Without further ado, here are 5 great medical apps to use:
1. First Aid
First Aid has been developed by American Red Cross. This app presents basic instructions that are required in typical first aid emergencies. For instance, if the user has accidently burned his/her hand while cooking food, the app can be used to find out information …
Identity management is something that everybody should be doing. In our digital age when so much could go wrong based on a typo or someone trying to play a joke, staying on top of things is the best thing you can do for yourself. So how do you do that?
Don’t wait for someone else to do a background check on you to see what they will turn up. Do the background check on yourself!
Start where you’d start with anything else: Google. Google your name and see what comes up? Is it good stuff? Do you see anything wrong or false or otherwise unpleasant? Take steps to correct the information or get it taken down. This can be time consuming but will be worth it in the long run.
Move on to social media: how are your privacy settings? Are they as strong as they could be? Do you approve of all of …

We’ve all seen these past two decades the slow but inevitable transformation of our society thanks to advances in science and technology. While many lament the passing of the good old days when you could read your paper on the subway rather than browse CNN.com or catch up to the latest buzz going through the Twittersphere there are a lot of people who embrace the transition. Like it or not, the current pace of technology has significantly improved many aspects of our lives, often by making menial, ‘analog’ jobs obsolete. Here are 5 items that are on their way out, soon or already replaced by their tech equivalents.
Vacuum Cleaners Some of us might remember the days of door-to-door vacuum cleaner salesmen with nostalgia. Most will remember them with irritation. People knocking on your door at 8 o’clock in the morning on a Saturday are perhaps not the ones you’ll remember fondly. But did …
