Future Technological Developments will Give Digital Communication a ‘Face’

March 26, 2013 |

This blog has been written by Jacqueline Rose, a features writer from Lifting Gear UK.

As the generations Y and Z (born between 1977 – 2012) grew up naturally with the internet, mobile phones and social networks, technology became an integral part of human society. Nowadays, people are enabled to do nearly everything from the comfort of their homes using the internet.

Starting from watching movies, transferring money, reading books, booking holidays, meeting (new) friends, doing grocery shopping, or sending postcards, everything can happen online. Recently, it has been reported that in the UK even doctor consulting rooms may be replaced with chat rooms on Skype. Consequently, human communication and relationships became virtual and global, and individuals self-organise and inform themselves using the web.

However, networking technology has also been impacting on businesses. The wide availability of the internet and social media let to the beginning of the information age, putting companies primarily into a … Read More

Long-Term Effects of the Digitalisation of Manufacturing

March 26, 2013 |

The digitalisation of manufacturing, the usage of renewable energies and 3D printing are seen as important cornerstones of a new era often referred to as a fourth industrial revolution. It is believed that this revolution will impact on both the economy and society.

For instance, offshore production centres may move back to their home countries in order to satisfy the demand off higher skilled labour which profit from the know-how of the local specialists. Thus, over the course of the next 30 years, industrial plants may experience many changes; with their old machinery being decommissioned or dismantled and replaced by intelligent, digitalised ones which make use of renewable energies. Plant demolition and disposal contractors would clearly profit from that prognosis. Click here for more information about Plant Decommissioning with AinscoughVanguard.co.uk.

For over two decades, internet technology has been shaping business related and private processes. Being already utilised for product distribution, marketing and customer service activities, … Read More

Lenovo Sets its Sights on Notebook Dominance

March 22, 2013 |

It seems strange to think that Lenovo’s notebook division only really entered the global consciousness in 2008, with the company’s purchase of IBM’s laptop division signalling its entry into this market. Now, the Chinese company is slugging it out with HP for notebook dominance, with analysts split on who will emerge victorious in 2013; most, however, expecting Lenovo to lead notebook sales volumes when first quarter results are announced shortly. The rise of Lenovo in this area has been astonishingly rapid, and it’s a success story that’s been built on smart acquisitions, product innovation and the burgeoning power of the Chinese laptop market.

For the root of Lenovo’s success though, we need to go back to that first acquisition from IBM, the purchase of the company’s global PC division. This was a complex deal which was valued at a total of US$1.75 billion and which took the Chinese company from being the world’s ninth-largest PC … Read More

Big Brother Improving Productivity in the Workplace

March 22, 2013 |

We have all heard the expression “time is money”, and when it comes to conducting business this saying is engraved in stone. When employees are on the clock and are not utilizing time during work hours to conduct business-related activities, they are ultimately stealing from their employer. However, thanks to Mobistealth, employers can increase productivity by ensuring that employees are not wasting company time and dollars by engaging in non-work related online activities.

A solution to the problem In some cases companies can simply block sites like Facebook, Twitter and YouTube from being accessed on company computers. However, as social media marketing is such a huge vital platform to ensuring business growth, it may be necessary for employees to have access to such sites. Having the technology to know how employees are using social media will help businesses boost efficiency tremendously. Think about it: if an employ is venturing into his personal Facebook account … Read More

Leveling Up Your Skype

March 20, 2013 |

These days pretty much everybody has a Skype account. The account is free, easy to set up and the app is easy to download and use. This service does more than just give you the ability to chat and make video calls, though! Here are some of the things that you can do to level up your skyping experience.

1. Get Your Own Phone Number

Skype offers dedicated phone numbers for extremely affordable rates. These phone numbers come with calling plans, voice mail, call waiting, the works. Why spend a bunch of money with your cable or phone provider to get the same exact service if you don’t have to?

Even better, the phone will only “ring” when you are logged in to Skype. If you don’t want to be disturbed you simply log out of the app and your calls will go straight to voicemail. Then, when someone leaves you a voicemail, you’ll … Read More

5 Free Online Photo Editing Tools

March 20, 2013 |

If you think you need to spend hundreds of dollars on photo-editing software, think again. These tools let you perform minor edits and major design changes to your images.

Pixlr

Pixlr works in your browser, but you can also download the app for your mobile. If you sign up for an account, it’s easy to access photos from your library.

Lenovo ThinkPad Helix Review

March 20, 2013 |

 

“Laptop, Tablet, and everything in between.” That’s Lenovo’s slogan for their high-power premium tablet/ultrabook hybrid. We were lucky enough to get an early preview of the device, which launches in March. Find out all about it in our review.

The hardware

The real blow-away selling point of the Helix is the sheer computational grunt contained within the main laptop body. Ivy Bridge i7 processors push Windows 8 smoothly, and power the bundled graphics software with aplomb. The full HD 1920×1080 LED display is rich and clear, whether you’re using the device in its laptop, tablet or presentation mode.

The display swivels on its hinges and lies flat against the main body, leaving you with a perfectly functional tablet experience. Moving from the docked ‘laptop’ mode to the more mobile-friendly ‘tablet’ mode is seamless – Lenovo have a good reputation for build quality, so those display hinges should be able to take a bit … Read More
