Think Smart

Nowadays, people are getting smart. Companies are creating better smart phones. Don’t know what the time is? Check your smart watch. You can now even wear your computer with smart glasses and smart homes are getting popular too. Yes, developers are finding new ways to bring smarter things in this world. Create your own application or device that will keep the momentum going.

Some Privacy, Please

With plenty of emerging news about invasion of privacy, people are becoming more conscious about keeping things to themselves or just among a few people. Private applications like, Snapchat or ones that secure your pictures and other information have made waves because people favour them more for their privacy-promising quality. Look into creating or capitalizing more applications that will cater to this consumer need.

Drones!

With Amazon launching the video for their Prime Air, you know that they are coming. And with a great feedback of interest from everyone who watched the videos, we can predict that drones will no longer be something that we see on TV

Hiring A Virtual Assistant

1. Stretch your budget. We all try to work within a budget. And one of the reasons why many people are considering a virtual assistant is because of its cost effectiveness. Consider spending more to hire a virtual assistant with more experience. Try to see it as an investment.

2. Communicate what you want. When hiring a virtual assistant it is important to let candidates know what you want and your expectations. You should also be clear about your budget, how long the contract will last, and the tasks you expect to be completed.

4. Availability of the VA. Most virtual assistant work for numerous clients at the same time. Make sure that the VA you will be hiring is available to go online during your clinic’s working hours or during the time when you need them the most. They

Make Smartphone Battery Last Longer

Charging battery frequently: The smartphones we use have big batteries so that we do not need to charge them again and again. But a lot of people are in the habit of charging them frequently and this is something that must be avoided. By charging your battery a lot of times you are putting extra strain on the battery and this will only have a negative impact on the life and performance of the battery. It is advisable to charge your smartphone battery when it gets really low. This will keep the battery in good health and ensure that your smartphone does not run out of charge after every few hours. Leaving your smartphone on charging overnight is also not a good habit and must be avoided as much as possible.

Using third party chargers: Many people have the habit of using third party or cheap chargers to charge their smartphones. This is something that really harms the battery and your smartphone a lot. There is no point in spending 500 dollars on a smartphone and charging it with a

Technology Changed Art

Technology has taken art into a new level of creativity. Let us talk about how technology has changed traditional art into digital art. We know that internet is ruling the world with its power. So, artists decided to present their art online with the help of internet. This is possible with use of technology.

You must have seen art galleries and attended painting exhibitions in your life. These doesn’t work well these days so artists find a way where they can get more attention and more praise for their work. Most of the artistic stuff is now seen online and is circulated to the art lovers.
There are some places where exhibitions are held and we do respect them. But presenting paintings, sculptures and art work online is in trend. Some of the artists are also showing their art on the basis of card swipe panel or coins.

How this work – when you enter coins or swipe card in the panel, the panel shows you some of the art work for a few minutes and then gets closed and if you want to see it again or explore more, further you need to swipe your

Use 3D Pen

First of all, a 3D pen is somewhat like a glue gun. The plastic filament of the pen heats up and forces the plastic to get out of the tip. And the melted plastic can be used to draw anything that you may want. As soon as the melted plastic comes out of the pen, it begins to cool down fast giving the desired shape of the object.

3D Pens and Filaments

Creating plastic models with this type of pen is an affordable hobby. You can buy a pen along with the plastic filament of different colors for not more than $100. But if you can afford to spend a bit more, we suggest that you go for the 3D Simo Mini, which is a great choice for professionals.

As far as investing in the plastic filament goes, you may want to make sure that the filament is flexible and durable. If you are a beginner, we suggest that you go for the PLA filament.

Getting started

You need to consider a couple of things prior to getting your 3D pen ready for the work. First of all, you need to set the

All about Compressing Files

First of all, the software Winrar exists which can be downloaded for free from the web for almost any version of windows operating system and can be used instantly to compress files. It can also compress a folder of file(s). But you have no control over how reduced the size will be. Winrar will do it automatically as it is configured to do so.

If your operating system is windows, sending a file to a compressed zipped folder is another option to compress a file but you do not have to download anything. It comes handy with the operating system and you just have to right-click on the file you want to compress and select send to compressed zipped folder.

If you do not like the above two ways, you have the option to reduce files to your desired size by Adobe Photoshop or using the special feature of file size reduction of adobe acrobat reader.

These are all good choices for compressing files. You just need to make the right choice for your particular task. Sometimes you will need to experiment a few trial and error runs until you are comfortable with one way.

Getting PC to Speed Up

• Limited space-when downloading things from the internet most people will store it on the hard drive. If there is too much stuff on the hard drive it will slow your computer down. Delete any software programs, entertainment media files, and games that you no longer use and are just taking space on your hard drive. Once this is done your computer will be faster.

• Get rid of temporary files-there is generally a lot of unwanted stuff that is stored in your cache memory so make it a habit to delete all of the temporary files, history of websites you visited, and cookies at least once every two weeks. All of these unnecessary files can take up a lot of space on your computer. To use these slow computer solutions go to your Start Menu and select run. In the box there type (%temp%). This will show you all of your temporary files. You can select and delete what you want.

• Repair your windows registry-approximately ninety percent of all slow computer problems are because of window registry errors. Here there is a track record of all of the software found in your computer. With

Fixing Computer Problems

• After a power outage-there are many sudden power outages, spikes, and voltage problems that can damage a computer. The damage can cause many software and technical snags along with interrupting your work. This can lead to damage to the hardware, loss of data, etc due to a sudden power outage. The solution is to use an uninterrupted power supply (UPS). It can provide a constant flow of energy to your computer even if there is a sudden power outage. It will give you enough time to save your data and if needed, to shut down the computer.

• Slow down of computer performance-when you notice that your computer is slowing down a lot and it seems to take a long while to execute a simple command it could be due to your computer being loaded with fragmented data, unnecessary files, spyware programs, corrupted registry, etc that makes your computer slow down. The computer solution to this problem is that you need to delete any unnecessary software and data that you do not need or not using, and learn to manage your programs. When you clean your registry regularly it can boost your computer performance speed by

All about Audio PED

Now most Bluetooth headsets equipped with the camera available on Amazon are dubbed “spy headsets” and there is a whole variety of them available with price ranging from $30-90. But, AudioPED is a lot more than just a Spy cam or even a Bluetooth headset as it has basic health monitoring sensors as well. I managed to find one headset that came close to it; The Ctronics Hidden Wearable Spy Camera HD that costs $90. As you can easily predict, the price increases with an increase in memory size, functionality and the camera quality. Now there is no concrete price tag from the team right now, but it is widely reported to be around $109 which is a lot more than the other Bluetooth devices but let’s look at the specs of the new Bluetooth handset and see if it’s really worth the hefty number of dollars!

Sound

Since these are basically Bluetooth headsets, it is important to start off with the primary function: sound. The Audio PED offers a top-of-the-line quality sound to its users, and it can be streamed directly via the internet instead of storing it on the device itself. This feature is

Prevent Laptop Overheating

Use a Laptop Cooler Pad To Prevent Computer Crashes

We all know what it is like when our computer crashes; pretty frustrating. Luckily, most of the time all we have to do is re-boot the computer and things are back to normal. If you find that the crashes are fairly regular then it is because there is something seriously wrong and will need to get looked at quickly.

Overheating is a major factor in computer crashes. Many people assume that when their computer crashes, that it is due to a virus, a part failing, or simply due to the Operating System itself. While some of these may be true, it is more often than not, a symptom of overheating.

A crash due to overheating can be characterized by the entire computer system being unresponsive or, “locked up.” This generally results in you having to manually restart your computer. After restarting, the laptop may seem to operate normally for a time, but eventually it suffers the same crash symptom, regardless of which program you are working in.

Android TV Box

Not only can you use your Android TV box in the UK but it’s so compact you can take it abroad with you. Having access to your favorite Movies and shows whilst you are away is just another great reason for owning an Android TV box with XBMC.

People of all ages benefit from the options that an Android box opens up. Downloading and playing the latest Android games for kids, or following awesome content for Mum on Pinterest, it has it all.

Another great feature is being able to wipe the box down and start again in the space of few minutes. Updating the box also usually happens automatically with many of the better brands having OTA update service, downloading the latest firmware build directly from their own servers.

Imagine a system where your kids can play angry birds on your TV, you and your friends can watch the latest film and for dinner parties, you can play your favorite Spotify playlists directly from you home theater speakers, all remotely controlled from your connected smartphone!

Once you use an Android TV box in the UK it becomes pretty apparent that you no longer

Types Of Connectors

VGA Connector

It’s common in many computers. It’s also used in many videos. For ideal results you should use a 15-pin connector on a device that you are sure of the type of video that it can put in and out. The connector is mostly used in projectors.

Speakon Connector

This is the latest connector used in audio connections. The unit is available in 2, 4 and 8 pole iterations. For audio applications, you should use 2 and 4 pole. The good side with this unit is that it takes in high current signals. When connecting it you should connect the female plugs to the male panel socket. Due to this connection, you should use the connectors in live sound applications where you should use them in connecting power amplifiers to loudspeakers.

XLR Connector

This is another balanced connection that is used in many pro audio applications. The unit has a barrel design that is approximately 2cm in diameter, with about 3-7 pins or holes. You can effectively use it in audio applications where you use the 3 pin XLR.

Balance Jack Connector

It aids in carrying two channels of audio

Maintain Portable DVD Players

1. Set The Portable DVD Player On A Flat, Stable Surface. This cannot be emphasized any further. While modern portable CD players can tolerate more vibration without seizing up than older models, it is still the safest bet to position it on a flat and stable surface. Even the latest car DVD players will seize up if you hit a bump hard enough. This is because your CDs will be spinning at incredible speeds, and abrupt motions can (and often do) result in damage to either the VCD or the player.

2. Canned Air Is Your Best Friend. Bringing canned air with your portable DVD player is a must. When playing a DVD, it is considered safe practice to blow away any and all dust on the data surface (aka the shiny side) of the CD. This prevents dust from scratching the VCD as it spins inside your mobile DVD player. Canned air ensures that you don’t get any saliva on the surface of the CD – further reducing the risk of accidentally damaging the VCD due to losing spit.

3. Keep Some Lint-Free Cloth and Lens Cleaning Fluid. These two items combined are necessary for

Clean Cell Phone Screen

Experts believe that you get the flu by coming into contact with someone who has the flu. If that person sneezes or coughs, the germs travel through the air and the tiny droplets land in your nose or mouth, gross. However, those airborne water droplets can also land on the surfaces around you. This is the ‘viral’ part of the sickness and it happens very easily. The statistics demonstrate a need for additional precautions to be taken, including cleaning things you touch regularly. One of those things is definitely your cell phone.

During flu season, you might want to avoid allowing a stranger or even a friend to use your cell phone, which is pretty good advice all the time actually. However, keeping your cell phone fairly sequestered won’t keep it free from any particles that might be in the air. There are various companies that have made it easier for you to make sure you have a clean cell phone screen during flu season with screen cleaners. The two most popular product on the market are Microfiber Cloths, which can be kept right in your purse, pocket, or a drawer in your desk and are microfiber

Keep Electrical Cabinet Cool

Replace Parts as Needed

Many cabinet fan cooling kits are designed to give consumers with a product that is easy to install and will last awhile. That does not mean that all the parts of the product will last for the entire life of your electrical enclosure.

Owners should do routine checks to guarantee that all parts are in working order, and replace parts as needed. Even fan cords that are beginning to fray can have a negative impact on the cooling system of your unit, resulting in your electrical enclosure not being as cool as it should.

Filter Maintenance

Providing routine filter maintenance is vital to keep cooling systems running properly. When a filter is not clean, it is more difficult for the system to push cool air into the electrical enclosure, resulting in an electrical cabinet that will be hotter than average, causing damage to the electrical components found inside. Filters that are reusable should be cleaned on a regular basis, and filters that are not should be replaced as they become dirty.

What Not to do

Individuals that own electrical cabinets may find themselves in a bind if their

About Telerobotics and Telepresence

Telerobotics is often confused with the idea of Telepresence (TP). Both have a role to play in shaping the way that future security systems will act. So, what is the difference between telepresence and telerobotics?

Telepresence allows you to feel like you are in a remote location without actually being in a remote location. Currently, it’s about pumping the highest resolution video and audio to the remote viewer in order to simulate the environment in which the sensing/recording equipment have been placed. This type of solution is going to be focused on improving what the camera and microphone can detect as well as bandwidth utilization. Some common examples of consumer tools include Skype, FaceTime and Google Hangouts.

These are all essentially telepresence applications that can be used from your computer or cell phone. Other than the focus on real-time interaction, this is effectively the current state of the surveillance industry. The video and audio feeds are as real time as possible and an individual can theoretically monitor those feeds from anywhere. This likely means that future applications in security for telepresence may be more about access control or real-time interactions in areas too dangerous/sensitive to host

Internet for Reference Tool

First, using the Internet as a reference tool.

While the ease of use, scope of resources, and up-to-date nature of the information available online are collectively invaluable, there are also some downsides to using the web for research. The biggest thing to be careful about is low quality, unsubstantiated material that hasn’t been reviewed for accuracy. Since anyone can post on the Internet, it’s up to you to make sure the resources you’re using are reliable.

How do you deal with that problem? You need to use good, reliable search tools; use good searching techniques (see a recently published article on Boolean Phrase Searching right here on EzineArticles for more on that); and take responsibility for thoroughly vetting any material you use. It can be tempting to trust resources that support your hypotheses, but they need to be checked just as thoroughly as anything else you hope to cite, or more so.

Good, reliable search tools mean, when possible, focusing on information available in libraries, government databases, and similarly vetted information repositories, as well as using the appropriate internal search tools. That doesn’t mean you can’t use Google or Wikipedia, but if you do, check

Creative Names and Passwords for WiFi

Get creative with the name.
Please don’t leave the default string of letters and numbers. While it may feel like you’re keeping the connection anonymous, anybody who looks at the signal strength on their device can make a good guess. Walk down the street with your phone searching for connections, and you can reliably identify most of the homes on the block, just by the signal strength as it peaks and fades. Like the email address you first made in middle school, the wireless router is an opportunity for unprofessional flourishes of creativity. Even if you just want to make a pair of breasts with parentheses and periods, only the neighbors can judge you. Consider referencing pop culture or your favorite book series, and you may become the coolest person at the next neighborhood block party.

Some people use their network name as a way to send messages to neighbors, which can come off as passive aggressive. “PickUpYourDogPoo” may get a laugh from neighbors who share your frustration, but someone who takes offense could respond unpredictably. To get a more consistently positive response, stick to puns and pop culture like “Hide Yo Kids Hide Yo WiFi.”
