September 12, 2013 |

Over the last few years there has been huge advancements in led screen technology and we don’t just mean the type of led screen you have in your living room, but the type that you might have seen when you go to a music concert or even a horse trials!

Make Sure Your Computer Is Protected from Viruses and Hackers

November 19, 2012 |

Have you ever had the displeasure of having your computer infected with a virus? I have, and it is not a fun experience. Here is what happened to me.

I grabbed my morning cup of coffee and turned on my computer just like I do every single morning. I took my first sip of my morning coffee and waited for my computer to spring to life. That first sip of morning coffee is always the best. One big whiff of that wonderful aroma and I was ready to face my computer, but the computer screen looked a little different this morning. Instead of the usual welcome screen, I was greeted with a big blue error screen. I took another sip of my coffee, and powered off my computer. I turned it back on and waited for it to boot up. I was greeted with the same blue error screen again. I repeated this same routine … Read More

Television: An Evolution

October 18, 2012 |

Television has come a long way in the last 90 years, and at each stage of its evolution, people have wondered whether it could get any better. Today’s TVs are bigger and lighter, have better images, and use less energy than predecessors. At the same time, manufacturers are able to offer all that at a price that has for the most part stayed the same when adjusted for inflation. Let’s take a look back at some of the major steps up the TV has taken since it’s introduction.

The Tube: The original television debuted in 1922, reshaping the way the world lived. With news, music and entertainment at their fingertips, families changed the ways they spent time together at home. The first televisions used cathode ray tubes, which is how they got their nickname as the tube. These TVs projected electron beams onto a curved glass screen, where they were visible as images.

Color Televisions: These were introduced … Read More

The Laptop Vs. the Ultrabook

October 8, 2012 |

The ultrabook claims to be the PC’s answer to the MacBook Air, a sleek and lightweight category of laptop. If you’re looking to replace an existing laptop with something more current, review the specs of each category to decide whether an ultrabook or a laptop is more appropriate for you.

Battery life

The average for ultrabooks is about five hours of use with a fully charged battery. As you use the laptop away from home, the battery life will shorten. For standard-issue laptops, the battery life has a far wider range, of anywhere from one hour to 10 hours. A con for ultrabooks is that batteries are encased and therefore not changeable, while standard PC batteries may be removed and refreshed.

Screen quality

Laptop screen range anywhere from 13 to 18 inches, with wider screens typically leading to a heavier laptop body. Ultrabooks go as low as 11.6 inches and top out at about 16 inches. Screen … Read More

Branding Interactions

July 24, 2012 |

As powerful and pervasive as smartphones like the Google Droid Nexus One and the iPhone seem to be, believe it or not, Americans overall still prefer their predecessor feature phones. While the popularity of smartphones is definitely on the rise, more U.S. users still have feature phones in their hands than smartphones. Some examples of popular feature phones include the Sony Ericsson Elm, the Verizon LG Cosmos, Accolade and enV Touch and the Samsung Monte.

With all the hype and accolades circulating for smartphones, how can this be? How is it that people are still choosing the previous generation of phones instead of the loaded, cutting-edge smartphones?

The reasons for this seem to boil down to cost and simplicity. At this time, feature phones are still cheaper than smartphones, sometimes significantly so. Although the smartphones do, indeed, come loaded with features as well as the capacity for even more features, this can be intimidating to … Read More

Rapid Fashion: 3D Printing Hits the Runway

February 23, 2012 |

It seems like every year that passes brings us closer to our society’s idealized version of the future. Imagine bringing an iPad to a box social in 1950; how many heart attacks do you think you’d cause? As time marches by, technology also creeps out of our offices and homes and into other sectors of our lives. One trend I’ve picked up on over the past few years is how tech fashion is being created and sold to denizens of an increasingly digital world.

Apple has helped popularize technology and elevate to it culturally iconic status with its timeless aesthetic design. As a result, we are starting to see technology play a larger role in the fashion world. The first time I can remember Apple being used effectively as gear was the old-school iPod Shuffle with the clip. A later iteration of the Shuffle was literally turned into a pretty fancy watch by an enterprising … Read More

The Flintstones Meet The Jetsons: Going Paperless in the Multi-Generational Office

February 16, 2012 |

What does a multi-generational workplace have to do with the human resources department going paperless? More than you might think. Today’s workforce is comprised of four distinct generations – Traditionalists, Baby Boomers, Generation X and Generation Y, or Millennials, as some refer to the youngest of workers. Survey results vary, but early sources indicated that Traditionalists and Millennials together made up a smaller percentage of the workforce than did Generation Y and Millennials – however, traditionalists’ presence in the workforce was expected to rise by 50 percent between 2002 and 2012. Recent economic turmoil has industry analysts revisiting theories about Traditionalists and Baby Boomers retiring en masse.

Employers benefit tremendously from the kind of multi-generational diversity found in today’s office. They reap the benefits of having the seasoned doyens from the Traditionalist generation as much as they value the expertise of a tech-savvy Millennial. Nevertheless, there are myriad challenges of running an HR department when you … Read More

3 Cool iPhone Apps

January 31, 2012 |

Here’s the review of 3 cool iphone apps.

Flipboard

Flipboard, the popular news aggregation app that has long been an iPad-exclusive staple, has finally made the transition over to the iPhone. The question is, does it translate well to the smaller screen size? Yes and no. All of the same features, are there for reading a large selection of content, but the magazine-style layout that Flipboard is famous for is conspicuously absent from the iPhone version. It uses many of the same conventions like large typefaces, pull quotes and nicely-laid-out images and video, but the limited screen space means only 1-3 stores can fit on each page, and you don’t get anywhere near the same variety of layouts.

Regardless of which device you use for accessing Flipboard, it’s easy to spend hours in the app just browsing through all the content. You can add your Facebook, Twitter, Linkedin, Tumblr and Google Reader accounts (among others), … Read More

HP Mini 5103

December 15, 2011 |

The HP Mini 5102 was a decent notebook that was dependent on the single-core Intel Atom processor. Once the Intel Atom N550 was announced, HP right away released the HP Mini 5103. It is exactly the same as its predecessor save for the new dual-core Atom N550.

Netbooks are mostly made with plastic chassis. Metal is seldom used due to several reasons. The HP Mini 5103 maintains an anodized aluminum top that is black in color. The look is very stylish and really sets HP apart from the competition.

The HP Mini 5103 weighs 3 pounds which is understandable as it has a 10-inch screen and is powered by a huge battery. Like other HP netbooks, it has a default resolution of 1024 by 600 that can be upgraded to 1366 by 768 for a fee. There is another upgrade possible with the Mini 5103 too. You can choose to have the screen turned into … Read More
