Is There an Intelligence Through Conventional Reading and Research Being Lost in the Digital Age?

What is your opinion about the title question? Any ideas? Why don’t you read on for a few highlights?

Conventional reading of documents in print allows you to focus more and give you enough concentrating power so that you are able to come up with research ideas and eventually a research topic.

You are able to do prospective research through programming and experimenting innovatively. In fact, for this to happen, you need to study programming and various experiments in your field of niche and come up with new approaches.

In the digital age, there is too much information on the web. Continue reading Is There an Intelligence Through Conventional Reading and Research Being Lost in the Digital Age?

New or Used Computers?

When it is time for a new computer do you go with a used model or a brand new one? The experts will tell you that first you should know what you will do with the computer. Are you using it for work? For high end gaming? For checking social media accounts and emailing? Because computers get more and more powerful all the time something that is a few years old just won’t be able to compete with something brand new unless you don’t need or anticipate needing it for anything full on fancy.

Old computers are behind in a lot of things, the operating system is a big one. Continue reading New or Used Computers?

MongoDB: An Overview

MongoDB is an open source database which adopts a document oriented data model for its functioning. It was devised by Dwight Merriman and Eliot Horowitz when they were facing development and scalability issues with traditional relational database approaches while building web applications for an internet advertising company named Double Click which is now owned by Google Inc.

According to the creator Dwight Merriman, the name of the database was derived from the word ‘humongous’ to serve the idea of supporting large amount of data. Continue reading MongoDB: An Overview

Ubuntu for Tablets and Phones From Canonical

      For some it came as something as a shock, but for anyone paying particularly close attention to the recent developments within the operating system over the past couple of years, the announcement from Ubuntu developers Canonical that they are planning to release tablet and mobile phone versions of the popular Linux distribution should have come as no surprise.

    But what could Ubuntu bring to the mobile phone and tablet market that isn’t already provided by Apple, RIM and Android? Surely there is already one very strong Linux based mobile OS in the shape of Android already, perhaps negating the need for such a move?

    Regardless of what you think about Canonicals motivation for this expansion, the fact remains that they have established a full roadmap to getting the Ubuntu onto phones, tablets, set-top boxes/media centers and even TVs by 2014.

    It seems that the only thing that can stop them is a lack of partners or a lack of interest

    Why Ubuntu Suits Tablets and Phones

    As far as Canonical is concerned, their Linux distribution is ideal for all manner of different devices. Continue reading Ubuntu for Tablets and Phones From Canonical

Is The End Near for Mechanically-Induced Flight Delays?

Is The End Near for Mechanically-Induced Flight Delays?

Have you ever had to deplane because of mechanical problems, waiting hours on end before you could catch another flight? Chances are, as you waited, you didn’t wonder if 3D printing could help get you back on schedule. But with 3D printing, or additive manufacturing, these delays might become significantly shorter.

Boeing uses fuel nozzles created through additive manufacturing. Continue reading Is The End Near for Mechanically-Induced Flight Delays?

The Diverse-Less Tech Industry - Change Never Happened in a Silo

If corporations have mission statements, goals and initiatives that they work toward achieving in their own systems of operation, shouldn’t hiring employees simply involve sourcing individuals who can help achieve corporate goals? Seems simple enough. I’m sure there are many more complexities to consider but at the core of it, this is the reason why new positions open in companies. Continue reading The Diverse-Less Tech Industry – Change Never Happened in a Silo

Advantages of Master Clock Systems

A master clock is a hardware device that obtains accurate time from a hardware reference and synchronizes slave clocks and time displays. The slave clocks rely on the master clock to display the correct time.

Once set, traditional, unsynchronized clocks drift away from the correct time at differing rates. After a relatively short amount of time, they can all display very different times. Correcting individual clocks can be a very time-consuming process which needs to be carried out at regular intervals.

GPS Master Clocks

Master clocks can use hardware time references, such as the GPS system to obtain very precise time. Continue reading Advantages of Master Clock Systems

Theory of Microsensors

Microsensors

Since microsensors do not transmit power, the scaling of force is not typically significant. As with conventional-scale sensing, the qualities of interest are high resolution, absence of drift and hysteresis, achieving a sufficient bandwidth, and immunity to extraneous effects not being measured. Microsensors are typically based on either measurement of mechanical strain, measurement of mechanical displacement, or on frequency measurement of a structural resonance. The former two types are in essence analog measurements, while the latter is in essence a binary-type measurement, since the sensed quantity is typically the frequency of vibration.
