The Technology in House Alarms Which Keeps You Safe

House alarms are things which we don’t tend to think about too much. We buy one, get it fitted and then switch it on to protect our property. What could be simpler?

However, modern house alarm systems have some highly advanced technology in them which makes it interesting to spend a bit more time investigating them and how they work.

How House Alarms Technology Saves Us

Wireless Systems

Wireless Systems ready to keep you safe at homeOne of the greatest advances in alarm technology in recent years is that which gives us wireless systems. This isn’t merely an aesthetic improvement, as a wireless alarm will offer the homeowner a more flexible and secure way of protecting their home than a traditional one would. This is because additional detectors can be added easily to the network and there is also no risk of the wires being cut or otherwise rendered useless.

Ultrasonic Devices

Ultrasonic device can help avoid injuries at homeAnother interesting way of protecting home is with alarms which use ultrasonic frequencies. These can’t be heard by humans but are very effective in detecting movement in a property. The detector sends out waves of sound and then receives them back, as they bounce off the walls and furniture. However, if there is unexpected movement in the room then the alarm will pick up on the fact that the sounds come back to it having been altered by that movement.

Heat Detectors

Some of the alarms which most people think detect motion actually detect heat changes. This may not seem like a huge difference but it helps make them more efficient than a motion detector would be. When someone passes the detector it will detect the subtle change in the room’s temperature caused by that person and this will activate the alarm.

Heat Detector Prevents Fire

We have all seen how crime films make great use of light beams crisscrossing a room or protecting a giant precious stone. Of course, the big problem with visible beams is that the criminal can look for a way of getting past them. A better way in most cases is to use infra red beams which are invisible. Instead of just one narrow beam these can be concentrated in blocks to make an implementable barrier.

Instead of just one narrow beam these can be concentrated in blocks to make an implementable barrier.

Broadband and Remote Control

The use of broadband communication means that alarm signals can now be sent in a faster and more secure way than ever before. It is certainly a long way from the old fashioned alarms with tripwires and bells to the current models offered by the likes of ADT. You can also integrate your alarm in a smart house design by operating it by remote control. The CCTV monitoring system enables you monitor your house when you are away from home and also to turn it off for your arrival before you even get there.

All is set for the BlackBerry 10 release on Wednesday

It’s happening on Wednesday, the BlackBerry 10 will be showcased in New York by the Chief Executive of Research in Motion Ltd, Thorsten Heins.

The Canadian smartphone maker has promise a speedy, super typing experience and a device that could keep personal and work identities separate on the same phone.

blackberry 10 interface

The debut will go along with a super bowl marketing campaign for the long awaited BlackBerry 10 device. The smartphone has suffered a lot of delays, which may be attributed to a phobia from the trend – setting Apple iPhone and the Google Android devices. RIM couldn’t afford a single error that will give the iPhone and Android more edges.

The BlackBerry 10 since its first demo has been receiving positive reviews by analyst and blogs around the globe. Many analysts has predicted the BlackBerry 10 as a chance for RIM to bounce back, last September, merely getting a new about the new device, RIM’s stock surged nearly triple to $16.18 from the a nine year suffering, although it is still 90% below its $147 value in 2008.

Major analysts believes the success of the BlackBerry 10 would be very important in the history RIM’s long term viability.

BlackBerry, introduced back in 1999, once dominated the smartphone market, especially for business users. Infotech managers loved the device based on the security and easy management. The physical keyboard was one thing that thrilled a lot of employees; it is easier to type than the touch screen system on the iPhone. It was President Obama’s favorite when he entered office; it also entered the list of Oprah Winfrey’s favorite things. Out of addiction by so many people, BlackBerry got a new nickname called “the CrackBerry.”

Many more markets began to open for the BlackBerry, and the ego entered many countries. The story changed to another thing just in 2007 when Steve Jobs came with the iPhone. The iPhone proved that phones can much more be useful than just doing calls and Email. They became big time music and video players, alongside game consoles.

Soon, the Blackberry looked obsolete.

Although, the sales of the BlackBerry continued its growth in other parts of the world, but the North Americans switched to Android devices and iPhones. In the quarter of September 1, the 80 million BlackBerry subscribers dropped to 79 million in recent quarters. IDC research firm observed that within 2008 – 2012, BlackBerry shipment in the US sloped down from 46% to 2%. The market was lost to either iPhones or Android devices.

RIM purchased QNX software systems in 2010, and promised to catch up with the trend with the technology it has gotten through the new acquisition. RIM previously promised the BlackBerry 10 in early 2012, later pushed it to late 2012, and due to some issues, it was extended further to early 2013, missing the lucrative holiday sales.

Over sometimes now, executives has been relaying a glimpse into some of the features of the BlackBerry 10, but RIM’s boss will finally uncover the entire system in the event coming up on Wednesday. The device is to go on sale after the event, but the price and the exact date is earnestly been expected on Wednesday.

RIM has redesigned the system to accommodate apps, multimedia and touch-screen experience that are the technologies of today.

RIM’s executive vice president of global sales, Rick Costanzo in an interview admitted that, RIM in history has once missed some strong points, but, now “Not only have we caught up, but we may even be better than some of the competition now.” Rick said. He continues “no one else can touch what RIM’s new system offers.”

BlackBerry 10 operating system, boasts of better multitasking than the Android and iPhone. A simple swipe of a finger across the screen will help you switch to another program.

The Blackberry Hub receives all emails and notifications from apps like Facebook and Twitter, a sensitive location that is easily accessible with a finger swipe even when you are running another application. You can peek into it to open your mailbox or go back to the opened application without opening the email.

Constanzo added that you won’t be going in and out of applications, but you will flow through applications with just one finger. The unique thing we worked on is to make sure you effortlessly flow between applications, and there is no problem if you choose to leave them running.

You can check your email while watching video, but the video get paused if you decide to open the email message. You will just resume it back after getting through with the email message.

One breakthrough RIM achieved with the BlackBerry 10 is that, the touch screen keyboard learns your writing style and suggest you words or phrases to auto complete, a feature above the typo corrections rivals offers. Pick the correct one you are about writing.

A Scotiabank financial analyst, Gus Papageorgiou who has tried the BlackBerry 10 out agrees the keyboard further learns and even adjust to your finger placement.

RIM has planned to produce touch screen phones for the BlackBerry 10 at first, and then later release the physical keyboard versions. Many users prefer the physical keyboard to the touch screen and that an area where RIM is still able to stand in the game.

The second area that will make RIM excel with the new BlackBerry 10 is the ability to run two different accounts on the same device, employees don’t need to purchase a second device as one account can be for Business and the other for personal use. The feature is called BlackBerry Balance, with balance, you are able to switch from personal to work mode.

The browser is another thing Papageorgiou talked about, its browser promises to get speedy and faster even more than browsers on desktops and laptops.

Then only shortcoming in the BlackBerry 10 is that, it will not support many outside app writers for its app world just like it is being done on Android and iPhone. Although RIM has promised to launch over 70,000 apps alongside the release, and the apps will also support the PlayBook tablet release back in 2011, that is just one tenth of what is offered in the GooglePlay and iTunes store.

The analyst never forgot to add that longtime BlackBerry users will have to adapt to the new operating system.

He added that RIM will be successful if just one third of its current subscribers should upgrade, and if about 4 million new subscribers can be added overseas. According to IDC, the shipment of smartphone increased by 44% in 2012, and if the trend should continue, the growth of BlackBerry is possible even if Android and iPhone users refuse to switch.

“This smartphone doesn’t have to be the best in the world before RIM can be successful, Papageorgiou said, the big question is, if it fails, is it just too late? Is it that the two other platforms are just too advanced that no one can catch up with them? That’s a big risk.”

DARPA Showcase world’s highest resolution Camera, ARGUS-IS, 1.8-GigaPixel, can spot 6-inch target from 20,000 feet distance

ARGUS-IS is a 1.8 gigapixel camera, by DARPA and the US Army. The video surveillance equipment can resolve object as small as six inches from an altitude of 6km (20,000 feet). This is the highest resolution surveillance camera in the world so far or betters still, the world’s highest resolution camera.

ARGUS would be attached to an unnamed UAV drone and taken to an altitude around 20,000 feet is able to view 25 square kilometers (10sqmi) area.  For example, if the world’s highest resolution camera was flown to hover above New York City, it could capture half of Manhattan. Attaching two ARGUS could make the US keep an eye on the entire Manhattan 24/7.

This video shows ARGUS in function, you can see how amazing this is.

ARGUS can capture video at 12 fps with an imaging power of 1.8 billion pixels; the world’s highest resolution camera can clearly pick flying birds on the sky. The 1.8 gigapixel powers were made possible via 368 smaller sensors which DARPA/BAE claimed to be just 5 megapixel smartphone camera sensors. The totalities of the 368 sensors were focused on the ground through tetra image-stabilized telescopic lenses.

The world's highest resolution camera

This combination creates 600 gigabytes of data per second, part will be processed, and others stored for later analysis. All ARGUS’ data cannot be sent to the control room; therefore, DARPA has created Persistics, software which is able to identify ground objects and indefinitely tracking them.

The initial intention behind ARGUS, the world’s highest resolution camera was to get it deployed in Afghanistan, but scrapped; the war is winding down before the project could be completed. The best place ARGUS could be used is at home in the US where it will be strapped to a Predator drone for surveillance purposes.

Does this technology amaze you? The world’s highest resolution Camera, 1.8 Gigapixels or 1.8 billion pixels.

Business How to Guide

5 Most Expensive Computer Repairs Till Date

Computers aren’t always as intuitive as you might expect. It’s tempting to assume computers know how to take care of themselves. After all, they seem to know well enough how to play music, install updates, print documents and tell you you’re performing an illegal action. The truth is, however, that the more advanced computers become, the more care and regular maintenance they need.

The longer you prolong giving your computer the attention it needs, the more support you’ll need from your local computer repair shop.

Fortunately, many of the most expensive computer repairs are also the most preventable. Here’s a look at the top five most costly computer problems (most expensive computer repairs till date) – and how to avoid them.

Most Expensive Computer Repairs

1. Virus Cleanup

Depending on the situation, virus removal from a fleet of business computers can cost in the tens of thousands of dollars – or more. The more computers affected, the more expensive the computer repair services.

When a virus invades a computer, it can corrupt and steal data. Along with accessing your personal data, a virus on a business computer can acquire sensitive information about a company and its customers. Consequently, this can result in fines and penalties for not securing the privacy of those with whom you do business.virus cleanup - expensive computer repairs

Prevention tips: Install and regularly update antivirus and anti-spyware programs, as well as a firewall. A computer repair professional can recommend products based on your needs and budget.

Furthermore, be smart about the emails you open and the web pages you surf. Avoid opening emails from people you don’t know, and don’t click on attachments or links that come from unsolicited messages. Stay away from peer-to-peer file-sharing websites and those that appear suspicious. If you handle sensitive client information, consider having an IT company monitor and update your computer from a remote location so it can catch and prevent problems before they become major issues.

2. Cracked LCD Screen

There’s no simple or inexpensive fix for a broken LCD screen – you simply have to replace it. A simple screen can cost up to $300 to replace, but the latest touch screens will cost you more.Cracked LCD screen is expensive to repair

If the crack occurs on a laptop, you’ll have to surrender it until the computer repair and maintenance work is done, which can result in being out of business for a few days if don’t have a backup PC.

Prevention tips: Always use and place your laptop on a stable surface where it can’t fall or accidentally get kicked. Avoid placing an object between a laptop’s screen and keyboard before you close it. When you travel, use a padded bag or backpack designed to protect laptops from bumps.

3. Data Recovery

There are several scenarios that can make you lose all the data on your computer: a fried motherboard, failed hard drive, natural or man-made disaster, theft, virus, hackers, a drop as short as 6 inches, or age (hard drives and motherboards have a lifespan of a few years). When your data is gone, so are all the pictures, music files, client files, reports and projects you saved on your computer.

Data Recovery is another computer repairs headache

To recover the data lost on a single computer, you can expect to spend at least $3,000. It’s important to note that this cost doesn’t come with the guarantee of complete (or any) data recovery. If the problem is with a business computer, you can also expect a few days of downtime.

Prevention tips: Regularly backup your computer files using an online data service or external hard drive that automatically saves your data. If you do opt to use an external hard drive, keep in mind that you should store it in a secure, fire-proof and waterproof location. Additionally, guard your computer against power surges and lightning strikes with a good surge protector.

You can use Google Drive online backup for automated data backup!

4. Beverage Spills 

Beverage Spills is one of the expensive computer repairsOne of the simplest ways to fry a computer is to spill a liquid onto it. If the spill occurs on the keyboard of a desktop computer, you may only have to spring for a new keyboard. A spill on a laptop or computer case, on the other hand, can cost up to $400 because the computer repair professional has to take the machine apart, clean it well and put it back together – by hand.

Prevention tips: The simplest way to prevent a spill is to avoid drinking beverages around a computer. Since this is highly unlikely to happen, the next best thing you can do is sip them from a lidded container.

5. OverheatingOverheating is one expensive computer repairs

With the ability to reach temperatures of up to 171 degrees Fahrenheit, computers need to be able to vent hot air and take in cooler air. Like a car, when a computer overheats, it begins to fail. An overly warm computer may not work as quickly as it used to, or it may freeze or crash. If the overheating is bad enough, you could end up with melted components or fried circuitry.

Prevention tips: Give your computer or laptop plenty of room to breathe and don’t block the cooling vents. For example, avoid placing a laptop on blankets while it’s turned on; hard surfaces are best. When using a desktop PC, keep the case away from walls. If necessary, consider having a computer repair and maintenance shop install a special cooling system. Use a cooling pad with a laptop to prevent overheating.

These are the most expensive computer repairs issues/problems always encountered by computer users and this has been happening for long. If you don’t want to experience such kind of problem, you must follow the prevention tips outlined in this article so that you won’t experience any of these expensive computer repairs issues.

What are other things you think could be referred to as other expensive computer repairs issue that we haven’t covered here? Please share them with me.

Nokia Planning True PureView Windows Phone to release later in 2013

At the Mobile World Congress tradeshow in 2012, the Nokia 808 Pureview was arguably the most rated phone, except for the Symbian Operating System Nokia has made on this device. The mobile phone unboxed with a whooping of 41 MP camera, which made the phone able to capture exceptionally clear and crisp photos. This was a fascinating experience for people, but the Symbian was not just worthy of this, and a quest for the True PureView Windows Phone via the Lumia line up.

True PureView Windows Phone

The PureView is yet to hit Windows Phone, Nokia tried incorporate it on the Lumia 920 claiming it had added camera stabilizing features to reduce the on hand-shake induced blur, but the sensor in the 808 PureView was not found anywhere in the device.

The story could change this 2013 as the Finnish manufacturer is planning a “True PureView Windows Phone” and currently, it is codenamed “EOS” proposed to unbox with a similar sensor like that on the 808 PurView.

As the report we got from the Verge wrote; the EOS smartphone will be a high-end Lumia series for this year and instead of polycarbon, will be clad in aluminium which Nokia uses for its high-end Lumia phones. Nokia had earlier planned to shift from plastic to lightweight aluminium for a forthcoming high end Lumia phones, now the EOS True PureView Windows Phone is apparently one of the three devices being reported about, the rumored Lumia 920 replacement (Catwalk) being the second and a mid-range Nokia smartphone expected in the early summer is the third.

True PureView Windows Phone

The True PureView Windows Phone EOS will be a range on AT&T and will come with a new look featuring square edges in the aluminum body.

Nokia is yet to release a comment on the devices on rumor. As a spokesman said “Nokia doesn’t respond to rumors and speculations.”

Finally, apart from the True PureView Windows Phone, other rumors are saying that Nokia will be making its own Windows RT tablet, and is expected to debut early this year. Nokia has been an early pioneer of Internet tablets since 2006, the device ran on a form of Linux. Nokia is also one of the late phone makers to offer a tablet. Above all, Nokia is yet to comment on all the above listed issues.

What is Disk Partition?

Disk partitioning is a process whereby you divide your hard drive into numerous compartments, just like sectioning your library into different departments. One section covering books on wild-life, another on Psychology, Computers, Anatomy etc.

The main advantage of this disk partitioning is that you can access each compartments as a single individual drive.

Disk partition

Why do you need Disk Partition?

These days, hard drives arrive in bigger gigabytes, although it is a great improvement in the world of information technology, but there are major disadvantages facing disk with large spaces. An example is data loss, if there is an attack on your data store in a single compartment, the whole files could get infected. It has been observed that larger disk stored with data un-partitioned easily crashes down.

Importance of Disk Partition

Easy Maintenance

When you do disk partition, maintenance becomes easy, e.g. defragging process will be an easy task for the system, you will be able to set up Windows to defrag drives one after the other.

Easy Search Performance

When you are about to locate a stored file, since you have disk partition for each categories, it is easy to have a clue where the specific file could be locate, and it will also be an easy task for the system to search small compartments than larger space within the shortest possible time.

Security against disaster

This is the largest advantage of all; disk partitioning can save your data in times of infection or error. If a compartment gets infected, the other compartments are secured and you can easily format the infected section, unlike having infection in a whole disk when not partitioned.

How to run Disk Partition

This is usually done at operating system installation, this would enable you start up with a blank drive. For people who already have data on your disk and want your disk partitioned, you can run a format and restart your OS installation, but this will erase all your content except you run a backup before the process.

To save you all these stress, you can purchase a third party disk partition tool that will run and manage your partitions without a bit of data loss.

If you don’t want to spend a dime on this, you have to run this contest.
