3D Printing Comes Of Age

July 31, 2013 |

If Gene Roddenberry is up there somewhere looking down on us, it’s a good bet that he’s wearing a wide smile. It’s amazing just how prophetic the original Star Trek is proving to be, foretelling advances that we’re starting to see within 50 years of the series, well in advance of the 23rd century when Star Trek takes place.

Perhaps the most obvious example is the communicator, which bears an uncanny resemblance to a flip-top mobile phone. Nowadays, our Android or iOS smartphones actually go far beyond anything that Star Trek envisioned. Of course, we can’t beam down to a strange planet and then call Scotty back in orbit on the Enterprise, but we can call just about anywhere on Earth.

There are many other examples. The Enterprise traveled the galaxy, seeking out new life and new civilizations, boldly going where no one had gone before. We may not be traveling the galaxy ourselves … Read More

Cellular vs. Satellite: Understanding the Differences

July 29, 2013 |

Almost everyone has a cell phone these days — from your little sister in elementary school all the way up to your grandmother. It’s hard to imagine life without these handheld devices, which allow us to do so much more than simply make phone calls.

In fact, today’s cell phones are so powerful and have so many capabilities that it’s difficult to imagine a situation when a cell phone won’t come in handy. And while it’s true that for the vast majority of the time, and in the vast majority of situations, a cell phone will allow you to stay in touch or get help when you need it, there are actually plenty of situations when a cell phone just won’t cut it. In those cases, you need a satellite phone if you’re going to make a connection.

Data Storage: What Are Your Options?

July 25, 2013 |

Only 15 years ago, a good PC was lucky to provide a 3GB hard drive. Now, mobile phones have three times that amount as standard. While it may have been £25 for a 256MB flash drive in 2004, you can get 20 or 30 times the storage for the same price – and delivering higher speeds – from an even smaller piece of technology on your keyring. It’s not just because of advances in technology, either – it’s simple demand.

Over the last couple of decades, we’ve experienced a huge demand for more space. The explosion in popularity of the MP3 format in the late 90s led to huge music collections going digital, while the AVI and MPEG formats created a boom in video content. As technology gets greater – most recently, with the advent of HD – so does the need for storage. Now that most of us are “always on” – the internet, that … Read More

Recycling Resources for the Home and Office

July 25, 2013 |

The term “eco-friendly” is multifaceted. It denotes anything relating to the reduction of waste, the reduction of the emission of fossil fuels, and the conservation of energy. It would seem that in the home and office, it seems to fall to the wayside. Since waste management is the most tangible facet of eco-compatibility, it makes perfect sense.

The Civil Rights Movement was not the only movement to strike the states in the late 60s and early 70s. There was also the recycling movement, which sought to lift the waste of natural resources.

Since its inception, the earth had been recycling its resources naturally. It wasn’t until the recycling movement that men and women got the idea. Since then, educational programs have been instituted, recycling plants have been established, and trillions of tons of recyclable material have been diverted away from landfills.

As a result, what was once a movement has, in the last 20 years … Read More

4 Things You Need to Know When Selecting an SMB ISP

July 24, 2013 |

Selecting a small or medium business internet service provider (ISP) can be challenging for everybody, especially small business owners. Even though you should make price comparisons, other elements beyond price determine the quality of service.

Here are four significant things to ask yourself when determining what sort of internet you need along with which supplier meets your needs.

2. Precisely what degree of support comes with … Read More

July 24, 2013 |

Motorola has announced its return to the market with the long-awaited Moto X, firmly establishing itself alongside Finnish rivals Nokia as a company that has made huge strategic changes after slipping off the radar after years of dominance in the era where polyphonic ringtones were a way to sell a phone over a rival.

Nokia has already fought its way back into the modern market with its Lumia range. Recent adverts have shown how it is already specialising in areas that others … Read More

What is the Future of the Nook?

July 5, 2013 |

The Nook made a huge splash when it came on the scene. It was really the first of its kind and people wanted it for the freedom and benefits it gave. Gone were the days of needing to buy lots of bulky books to carry with you to appointments or the beach just for them to get damaged or lost. The Nook offered an alternative that people had been seeking: a device to store books at their fingertips that could be easily carried from place to place, and the eBooks could be downloaded without having to visit the store.

Why It Was Almost Gone

It was almost gone and phased out, though, because it was made and offered by Barnes and Noble, a bookstore. The company met a demand, much to their own downfall. They made it, marketed it, sold it in-store, and lost money on it. The company realized it was losing money … Read More
