Is your telecommunications company prepared for a power outage?

Is your telecommunications company prepared for a power outage?

Technology
More than many other companies, telecommunications firms are reliant on having an uninterrupted supply of electricity. If the power to your premises was suddenly cut, your business may instantly be rendered incapable of functioning. For every minute in the dark without access to critical systems and technologies, your organisation could lose many thousands of pounds. On top of this, you risk suffering major and long-lasting reputational damage. After all, customers demand a reliable round-the-clock service from their telecommunications providers. With this in mind, it’s important to ask yourself if your company is prepared for possible power outages. If it isn’t, now is the time to take action. (more…)

The new Microsoft browser that will end IE

The new Microsoft browser that will end IE

Technology
The story of Internet Explorer is coming to an end. Back in 1995, a revolutionary operating system took over the world, reshaping the way we interacted with computers. I'm talking about the Windows 95, an OS that represents a milestone in the history of computers. Along with it, Microsoft launched Internet Explorer 1.0, an application that allowed the user to interact with the outer world via Internet. Ever since,  things have evolved. A lot. Nowadays, although IE is the third most popular browser,  it is regarded as an outdated application that couldn't keep up with the trends. The best thing I can say about it is that IE is the perfect solution if you want to download a great Internet browser like Mozilla or Chrome. It's a sad joke, I…

Download 1GB in 0.003 seconds. The invention that could speed up the Internet

Download 1GB in 0.003 seconds. The invention that could speed up the Internet

Technology
A group of scientists from Netherlands and US was able to transfer digital information at the speed of 255 terabits per second (Tbps), ie 32 terabytes per second. If you do the math you'll learn that 255 Tbps is just enough to transfer a 1GB movie in three milliseconds. That's pretty fast, right? The team of scientists managed to beat the speed record for such a network transfer on a single optical fiber. So far, the fastest transfer rate achieved in the lab was around 100GB per second, and that is 2550 times slower than the this one. A rate of 255Tbps is similar to the sum of the entire Internet data traffic at peak hours. Scientists have achieved such speed by creating a multi-cores optical fiber. Before this project,…

How to downgrade from iOS 8 to iOS 7

How to downgrade from iOS 8 to iOS 7

Technology
iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus along with the new iOS 8 were just released. Although I can't say too much about the new Apple smartphones, since I haven't had the chance to play with them, I thought it would be a great idea to help people that just upgraded to iOS 8 and they are not so happy with it. Most users have mixed opinions on the latest iOS, and those who doesn't love it have the chance to perform a downgrade and return to iOS 7.1.2. The iOS8 to iOS7 downgrade option will be available for a short period of time, until Apple will release the digital signature for iOS 7.1.2, which will lead to the impossibility to return to the previous operating system. If you want to downgrade,…

The battery that can be charged in just 26 seconds

The battery that can be charged in just 26 seconds

Technology
The Kickstarter portal probably brought lots of dollars to its founders, but it also created the perfect environment for inventors to get the necessary funding for their projects. One of Kickstarter's users is Shawn West, and he says that he created the perfect battery: it can be charged in just 26 seconds. This type of battery could replace normal batteries like AA, AAA, C and D. In addition, Shawn says that his invention could revolutionize mobile phones and I have to agree with that. The smartphone industry really needs devices with longer life per charge. (more…)

Communication technology and services for organizations

Communication technology and services for organizations

Technology
The other day, I visited a large corporation in my city, and I noticed few interesting things about the way my friend that worked there and his colleagues communicate in order to achieve their goals and to finish the projects they are involved in. My first guess was that besides the Internet wires, they needed telephone wires and additional wires for the intranet to sustain all the possible ways of communication. Later, my friend told me that most organizations use special services that combines all their needs into a single line, thus reducing the costs and improving the performances. So, I thought it would be a great idea to write an article about it here... (more…)

Following last year's article on future technology trends, I decided to reiterate the invitation to peek into the near future and to see what are the best bets in terms of technology. There are many interesting projects to look for next year, but I will focus on things that are of great importance to us, things that we use in our daily life, things that could change our life for the better in the years to come.

The rise and fall of Kodak: a short study

The rise and fall of Kodak: a short study

Technology
We all know about Kodak. We’ve all used a Kodak camera at one point or another in time. But what few of us realize is that this once profitable and thriving company is now barely struggling to stay afloat. This may come as no surprise for most of us, as there have been no recent sightings of Kodak products in stores, professional magazines or simply in client’s requests. The truth of the matter is that nobody is using this historical brand any more, thus leading the company to stop production altogether. Being in the situation to file for Chapter 11 bankruptcy in the first quarter of 2012, the Kodak group and entire trademark was slowly but surely heading down. At the end of 2013, its managers successfully achieved the unbelievable…

Now it’s possible to 3D print your baby before birth

Now it’s possible to 3D print your baby before birth

Technology
3D technology has evolved way beyond its original purpose and scientists have developed ways to print even human organs. It's obviously that it has no limit, and there are companies that will think of unbelievable ways to make some money from it. For example a company called 3D Babies is selling custom 3D prints of your future baby! The service is based on the famous 3D ultrasound scan that offers a 3D perspective for parents for quite some time now. With the new 3D technology, parents are able to "hold their printed baby" before his birth. I know, it sounds awkward (and maybe it is), but it's all about science and shapes. (more…)
