Storing Technological Equipment
The way the world of technology is these days, it moves so quickly that equipment becomes obsolete in a second. As soon as something brand new is developed, something in the same vein is developed but that much better and more advanced. Sometimes however, when something new is developed it does not immediately negate all the other products that it surpasses. For instance, when new computers come out, they may trump the other computers on the market, but do not make them useless. When someone has a collection of all kinds of technological equipment, it is important to hold on to it, since at one point it was very expensive, and it could still come in handy. The question is what to do with these treasures while not using them. Mobile storage is a system that allows a person to hold onto their old technology but gives them room for the new. By using any sort of organization system to contain all the different types of technological equipment, it gives freedom of space to buy new products but not have to discard so quickly something like a computer, which can always come in useful to have another one on back up.
??????????? Businesses and individuals could benefit from using some sort of portable storage container to keep the equipment safe and undamaged while not in use. It would be a shame to have a computer break while it is not being used, as it is an expensive and important tool in today?s world.
Technologically Advanced Boats military
Technology has begun to peek its head into every aspect of our lives. Almost every home has a computer and businesses would be lost without them. Even supermarkets have upgraded their check out systems. Knowing this it is not surprising that technology can also be found in our leisure activities. Boating is a great past time for those who enjoy the open seas. It is great even for just a leisurely afternoon on a lake. And it is even better for those who can now enjoy their favorite past time as well as not leave the world behind. There are now luxury sailing yachts with such technology as to be able to allow a person to take their work with them. As some may want to go sailing to get away from it all, others may want to do this but not be able to. If this is the case they need not worry, they can take out a boat with such technological equipment as computers and televisions. They can enjoy the view at the same time as sending an email.
The way the boats themselves are made is an advance in technology and allows those who take out high performance luxury catamarans to have smooth sailing, comfortably and with ease. The combination of technology is a great example of the technological advances that this generation has made. Boating was once a culture of escape and freedom and now it is still but also includes ways to stay connected to life and the world while on vacation.
Sony boss Howard Stringer has put his reputation on the line with a bold prediction that the PS3 will outsell the Xbox in 2008 ? well on the surface it may look a bold prediction!
If you look a little more behind the scenes it is not difficult to see that problems are mounting for the Xbox with the Xbox live debacle tarnishing the Xbox name in many gaming circles.? The gaming industry, more than many others, is a very unforgiving community and you do not often get a second chance to make a first impression.? Microsoft launched their Xbox in a blaze of glory and while it has proved very popular in an array of markets around the world it has not quite set the world alight as they had hoped.? The Wii has put a spanner in the works for both Sony and Microsoft and they are still really fighting for second place in the industry, but is that about to change?
There have been numerous reports in the press that both Microsoft and Sony have been working on improved control pads for their respective machines and they are set to be launched in 2008.? This would take away much of the unique selling angle which the Wii currently holds and move both Sony and Microsoft onto a level playing field with Nintendo.
Whatever happens in 2008 it cannot be as dramatic and ground breaking as 2007, a year when Nintendo came in from the cold and took on the mighty Sony and Microsoft from what many saw as a position of weakness.? Written off by many just a couple of years ago, Nintendo have bounced back and recently announced a doubling of group profits ? mostly down to the success of the Wii.? This increased exposure has also given the company a lift in general, putting the name back in the technology headlines, a area it had been missing from for so long.
While the use of satellites has become something of an everyday event these days, it appears that what for years has been one of the more reliable areas of new technology is about to come crashing down to earth ? quite literally!
Apparently a US spy satellite ?the size of a bus? has lost power during its orbit of the earth and is slowly descending towards us, due to ?hit? earth in February / March 2008.? While there have been satellite malfunctions over the years without any threat to human life, this satellite seems to be a little different. While the size is larger than normal there are strong rumours that the satellite may well contain an array of potentially hazardous materials.
The US authorities have been unwilling to go into to much detail for obvious reasons but the very fact that all of the major government agencies around the world have been advised of the possible threat is more than a little worrying.? Some people are even linking the vessel to the famous ?Star Wars? program which would have seen the launch of armed satellites capable of knocking our missiles headed for the US, from outer space.? Officially this program was cancelled sometime ago, but there are some concerns that elements of the early stages of the program may be ?active?.
It is hoped that much of the satellite will breakup on re-entry to the earth?s atmosphere, but there are real fears that we may not be as lucky this time and the satellite could hit a heavily populated area of the earth.? The speed and weight of the satellite would be similar to that of a missile hitting the earth and has the potential to cause widespread damage ? aside of the fact it may well be carrying some form of hazardous material!
While there has been much controversy with regards to the power of social networking sites such as MySpace, BEBO and Facebook to name but a few, it seems that they have been welcomed into the fold by the BBC.? It has been announced that clips for their programs will be show on Rupert Murdoch?s MySpace social network, which has surprised many.? So have these networks finally been accepted by the mainstream media?
On the surface it looks as though these networks have been accepted with a whole host of media content and media delivery companies looking to cosy up to the like of Rupert Murdoch, however behind the scenes it may be a little different.? Since the success of YouTube and similar video sites, we have seen literally millions of illegal video clips and full movies appearing on sites such a MySpace.? While the likes of the BBC have sought retribution through the courts, the scale and number of video clips appearing is just unmanageable and it would cost a fortune to pursue each case through the courts.
Many have therefore taken the decision to use these social networking sites to advertise their programs in a more professional and market led manner.? The idea is that by giving an official channel where people can look at and even obtain clips of their favourite programs this will build the brand awareness of the likes of the BBC.? The more people who become aware of the depth and variation of programs which they have at there disposal the greater their viewing markets will become.? As we have all seen in the past, a fresh interesting video clip can soon go ?viral? around the world bringing with it a style of promotion which cannot be matched in many other places.
Over the next few years the relationship between online content providers and the likes of MySpace is set to become even cosier as they look to use each others strengths to promote their own services.
As they say in Yorkshire, ?Where there is muck there is brass?, well it seems to be the way for H20 Networks, a provider of broadband services to UK internet users.? The company are in talks with a host of councils across the country with regards to using the UK?s extensive sewer network to lay broadband fibre optics.? So what have they really got to offer?
The company involved seem to have some really ambitions plans and have indicated that they will be offering transfer speeds of up to 100 megabits per second against the standard BT rate of just 8 megabits per second.? H20 Networks already offer a limited sewer based service in Aberdeen and Bath and argue that the idea can save literally millions of pounds because the main cost of any new network is actually laying the cables.? After reaching earlier agreements with various authorities around the country they will ensure the cables are dug out of the way of rodents and other animals which may venture around the sewer network of the UK, thereby reducing the chances of damage.
There are some who are already pointing to a similar venture which was launched at the start of 2000 which unfortunately failed, however it seems as though the earlier venture was a little ahead of its time.? As we keep reading in the newspapers, broadband use in the UK has risen dramatically and we are already putting a huge strain on the systems currently in place.? There are real concerns that the UK broadband service may be in severe danger if improvements are not made to capacity levels.
As well as the cost factor (which would see the cost of laying cables to serve a small city reduced from ?80m to ?24m) there are also positive aspects for the environment.? It will be interesting to see how far this venture can go because there is no doubt that the UK broadband sector is screaming out for help!
