Nobody likes to be fooled or faked out, and no one said it better than, Alexander O'Neal!!!  :-)

RATINGS GAME

Thumbnail image for Internet_August 2008.jpg
If you or someone you know is about to create their own web site for personal or business purposes it must be set up to go live on the web.

If you don't buy your own servers to do this you have to go through a web hosting company.

I ran across a site that rates web hosting companies.

Thought the site would be helpful and informative.

You knew it had to happen.

 

You use your cell phone to check your email, take pictures, get voice messages, and surf the web.


Now you can use your cell phone to bank online.

 

Of course this is only the beginning, and you can expect the technology to continue to expand to meet the demand and needs of every consumer.

TECH TERM - 3G

| No Comments
Thumbnail image for Thumbnail image for TechTerm_Image 2008.pngSomeone asked me, "What in the world does 3G mean?

They told me, "You're TechnicalJones, What's the deal?"  :-)

Ok, here's the deal!  Hope it makes your day!  :-)



LJJ_TechTerms_3.JPGDefinition:  3G refers to the third generation of developments in wireless technology, especially mobile communications.

The third generation, as its name suggests, follows the first generation (1G) and second generation (2G) in wireless communications.

3G includes capabilities and features such as:

1.  Enhanced multimedia (voice, data, video, and remote control);

2.  Usability on all popular modes (cellular telephone, e-mail, paging, fax,     videoconferencing, and Web browsing).

3.  Broad bandwidth and high speed (upwards of 2 Mbps).

4.  Roaming capability throughout Europe, Japan, and North America.

While 3G is generally considered applicable mainly to mobile wireless, it is also relevant to fixed wireless and portable wireless.

3G offers the potential to keep people connected at all times and in all places.

SHRINKING PC

PC_August 2008.jpg

Smaller . . . smaller . . . smaller!

 

I guess the next PC that you will purchase may just be smaller and faster than the big bulky one you have at home or at your office right now.

 

I guess the key to all of this new modern technology is to make it faster and smaller.

 

Let's hope that they don't forget to make it easier to use also.

I know you enjoy your digital products (i.e. Cameras, DVRs, etc.), and all of the fun you have using them.

On the other end, how do you store and keep up with all of this information that you have created.

The problem of storing and safely maintaining your digital information is another technological issue that people are dealing with everyday.

With the amount of information we are all creating it will continue to be an issue of concern for all of us both now and in the future.

Recently, America Online (AOL) released the findings of their 4th Annual Email Addiction Survey, and some of the results about our use and need for email was very interesting.

The debate over the effectiveness of laptops in school classrooms continues everyday.

In the State of Maine, the realization of such a plan is being put to the test.  Presently, the state is providing all middle school students with laptops.

The use of this technology as an educational tool will be a continuing area of interest for all of us.

One thing is for sure, how our kids and how we learn will never be the same.

NOT EMAIL, JUST SNAIL MAIL

Postcard_August 2008.gif

Traditionally, August is the vacation month.  With the use of technology we can communicate by email and text almost instantly.

 

It almost makes you wonder . . . why even go on vacation?

 

In the U.K., it seems that technology may have helped inspire people to communicate the "old school" way.  The postcard is the new hot item to send.  Simple and very direct.

 

In a world that has become increasing isolated and cold.

Hawaii_August 2008.jpg

 

It is good to know that not everyone has lost that personal touch.

 

Happy and Safe Travels.

 

I will be looking for my postcard from you in the mail!  :-)
