Are Laptop Cooling Pads Necessary

xaEvery laptop user has felt it at one point. The scorching hot waves of the heat of your laptop slowly cooking your legs as you try to finish up a project or check your emails.

This is due to throttling that takes place in the device. Having processing power in a compact space like the body of a laptop often puts a strain on the hardware. Intensive activities like gaming or even binge watching Netflix might be causing the throttling and making your computer over heat. This problem might eventually lead to permanent damage.

However, cooling pads come to the rescue in elongating your laptops life span and helping it deliver its top performance without the hassle of overheating.

The phenomenon is commonly referred to as IT consumerization. The term is also used to describe the same practice applied to students using personally owned devices in education settings.

The term BYOD was introduced in 2009 by Intel when they noticed the tendency of using own mobile devices among the employees in their corporate work.

Importance of BYOD

Due to the rapid increase of mobile devices it is assumed that within next five years the total number of devices will be around 10 billion that means 1.5 devices per head. As the personal mobile devices are integrated part of our lives, employees want to use their own devices in personal as well as corporate purpose also.

Do We Give Thanks To Mobile Phones Or We Curb It Down

xssPleasure or Punishment

Do we give thanks to the mobile phone for blessing us with technology or we curse it because it has distanced us from our families? It has done both actually. Since the advent of 21st century the technology has also turned new and given us unimaginable things that we didn’t even think of in the 1990’s. But look now. Today, the iPhone 6, the tablets, the Smartphone, the laptops and palm tops and what not have made things so easy. We can book our movie tickets, download huge 4 hours movies and documentaries, learn hard mathematical equations, download recipes and eat delicious food and what not. Mobile has done everything that we humans are not capable to do it by our own physical hands. And what’s ironic it is us-the human brains that have invented this piece of technology. But is it is really giving us what we wished for?

What’s Up With Mechanical Keyboards

ckWhy should anyone want to spend upwards of $100 on a mechanical keyboard instead of sticking with a basic $20 model? A keyboard is a keyboard, right? Not so much, actually. My opinion changed when I finally tried out a mechanical keyboard. Suddenly, I found the keys on my rubber dome keyboard to be horribly squishy. What’s so special about mechanical keyboards? To answer that, I’ll start with a little history.

In the early days of personal computers, keyboards were large, expensive devices. They consisted of a sturdy printed circuit board mounted to a metal plate with mechanical switches of various types that provide tactile and/or audible feedback when pressed. This left you with no doubt whether or not you successfully typed a character. There was no need to pound on the keyboard and bottom out on each stroke just to guarantee the keypress registered.

These keyboards were large and heavy and cost upwards of $100. When the average personal computer cost somewhere between $2,000 – $5,000, this additional price was negligible.

However, as computers dropped in price, consumers were less willing to shell

Changing for the Sake of Changing

rbWe’ve seen some crazy gadgets over the years released by some of the world’s most valuable corporations. Some call it, “The second digital revolution”, only instead of sweaty proletariat workers, we’re talking about computer people tinkering around with gadgetry and coming up with a clever marketing slogan for it.

According to analysts, the Internet of Things are expected to generate $1.26 billion in 2016 and stating that The Internet of Things to be hitting the peak of the mountain. For those who are unaware, the internet of things is a collection of everything geeks would love. Software, programs, sensors and a whole network of computing paraphernalia to make new gadgets. Most of these are innovations and new technology supposedly made to make our lives easier.

Sounds good, right? Except that now, manufacturers are blatantly slapping WiFi and Bluetooth on every single gadget they come across, giving it a fancy name, tell the press that it’s a “modern marvel” and call it a day. I bet two engineers are high-fiving each other in some factory for every gadget they put a WiFi connection on.

6iThe Internet of Things (IoT) is the hot topic in the technology industry and we’re left to wonder why every industry insider is frenzied about it. As new as it may sound, IoT is not a newly born technology but the one that’s been here for some time. Kevin Ashton, co-founder of Auto-ID center at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, conceived it in the early 2000’s. Ashton was one of the pioneers of IoT, which he developed when he was working for a P&G project that involved linking RFID information to the internet. The concept was simple yet powerful enough to storm the whole IT industry.

What is Internet of Things?

Ashton wrote an article in 1999 for the RFID journal which said:

“If we had computers that knew everything there was to know about things-using data they gathered without any help from us — we would be able to track and count everything, and greatly reduce waste, loss, and cost. We would know when things needed replacing, repairing or recalling, and whether they were fresh or past their best. We need to empower

Keeping Up With Tech Trends

yWith the continuing evolution of technology, it’s not surprising how trends are constantly changing as well. A big number of companies try to create new trends or keep up and ride with the current ones as they create new tech startups that will hook the public and keep them wanting for more.

Take Flappy Bird for example. Although the application was released May of 2013, it made huge waves in 2014 and even became the most downloaded free game in the Apple App Store. It even earned $50,000 a day! After feeling guilty about it’s addictive nature, the creator of the game removed the game from application stores. But that gave opportunity for other developers to create their own application that was similar to it. So not long after that, hundreds of flappy bird-like applications were created and released in the application stores. But now it seems like the hype has died down and flappy bird will now just become another tech trend faded memory.

If you’re one of the companies that are making plans now for a new tech trend or you’re

Growth Hackers

errA man was running walking to his destination and came across a mountain. He could hear the sounds of those who were chasing him. The mountain like a colossus stood defiantly in his path. All that he had was a rope and no equipment to climb the mountain. It was either climb the mountain or risk being caught. There was no other way to reach his destination. He looked at the mountain and made a decision. He placed his hand upon the rock and started his ascent up the mountain.

Some people saw the man climbing the mountain from a distance and laughed at him. The man ignored his critics and moved upon the rock. Inch by inch, he climbed the mountain. Soon his hands were sore, his feet hurting but he kept on climbing. He had no resources but his rope, his strength and his mind. Many hours later, he stood upon the summit of the mountain. He did not climb the mountain because the mountain was there. He climbed the mountain with no resources because he had no choice.
