The World Economic Forum has published the results of their annual study that measures the technology usage of different countries. Go figure, the United States didn’t come in first place. The study used over 70 factors and indicators to determine the countries’ rankings. This annual study has been done for ten years and includes 138 [...]
Can you imagine a world where cars talk to each other? Can you picture a world where cars can tell other cars that there is an accident and heavy traffic up ahead? Try to conceptualize that a car can tell another that there is a parking space available at the location you are traveling to. [...]
President Obama, well into the latter half of his first term, is pressing forward with the goals he introduced in his latest State of the Union address. Mr. Obama is striving to bring high-speed wireless coverage to most Americans before the end of his potential second term. During his visit to Northern Michigan University in Marquette, Mr. Obama presented his appeal for linking and developing the infrastructure of the country using wireless broadband access. His plan calls for a $5 billion investment that would net $22.8 billion in the next ten years and reduce the deficit by almost $10 billion.
According to a recent report by research group ICD for the first time ever, personal computers are being outsold by smartphones. I can’t say that I’m at all surprised. This report states that worldwide, in the last 3 months of 2010, consumer electronics makers shipped 100.9 million smartphones (an 87 percent jump from the year prior) while PC shipments edged up a mere 3 percent to about 92.1 million.
Have we really almost run out of space on the internet? These are the types of possibilities that never occur to us common folk as we acquire more and more electronic devices from handhelds, to routers, to desktops, laptops, printers, modems, smartphone’s, Androids, IPads, and all other technological devices used so than we can keep track of Facebook, Twitter and MySpace (if you’re still into that sort of thing) for minute by minute updates on the happenings of our colleagues. We never stopped to think that “hey, since I have thousands (pardon the exaggeration) of electronic devices then Suzie Q may have around the same amount. At this rate maybe one of these days we’ll exhaust our resources?” No, we never stop to think that at all. In fact, we’ve been groomed to believe quite the contrary. We’re groomed to think that the internet offers an infinite supply of information accessed by an infinite array of mediums and we’ll have access to it all forever and ever. Well, the joke just may be on us.
So, how old were you when you made your digital debut? A new study by AVG Technologies found that 92 percent of today’s kids have some kind of online record. Additionally, 23 percent make their online debut before birth, with moms posting sonogram images. My cousin even started a blog from her baby’s perspective 3 months into her pregnancy.
On September 13, 2010 the HP and ArcSight merger was announced in California. The agreement, under which HP acquires ArcSight, is expected to have a big impact on the security of HP as well as reducing risk for customers while saving them money.
In the beginning of the year I looked back on the last decade and many of the major milestones we’ve reached in regards to new and innovative technology. I also said that although I see major improvements to the technology we use today, I don’t see anything as major as we did in the last [...]
I consider myself a healthy person and I am always trying to look for products that help me get into shape without getting bored and allow me to continue growing in my search for optimum health. At the beginning of each year you can always count on seeing commercials for companies like Jenny Craig, Special K and Bally Fitness. This year, you can also catch a commercial for Nintendo Wii Fitness. This product is a new innovation in getting you and your whole family fit.
Imagine the qualities and benefits of a new electronic device that was manufactured using semiconductors made out of plastic instead of silicone. The ability of this device to store and display hundreds of pages of newspapers, books, and documents makes this electronic reader a very useful tool and a great innovation.
