Configuring Hardware Systems into Personal Technology Devices

Angry PhoneA friend of mine recently spent almost $ 800 on a food sealer. A device that vacuum seals food for it to stay fresh for storage. Although I have no great knowledge nor ideas about food sealers in general the concept is interesting, as it allows you to buy food in bulks for cheaper and then store in in a way that keeps in fresher for longer, but the real interest for me is the software behind the function of the food sealer.

You see, the device is programmed in a certain way to keep it working in a specific way and it got me thinking about hardware systems in all our tools and devices. And even if I am quite sure no one will hack into your VacMaster P112 (LOL) we all keep various devices around that can be – even our cars now a days are programmed and can be hacked!!

The New Standard of Development: HTML5

inovies-HTML5Hyper Text Markup Language 5 more commonly known by its abbreviation HTML 5 is the fifth and latest development in the HTML standard. It is used by web programmers to build web pages and to design and build web applications.

It is the main approach used by web programmers and as such is recognized as the foundation to web programming. HTML 5 is meant to incorporate its predecessors; HTML 4, Extensible HyperText Markup Language (XHTML 1) and Document Object Model (DOM) Level 2 HTML.

Programmers Need to Be Multilingual or They Will be Left in The Dust

The HackerIn the past computer programmers only needed to be proficient in one computer language to be set for a career. In the 70’s and 80’s you learned FORTRAN, COBOL or C and you could be gainfully employed for 30 years until you retired. In those days mainframes ruled the business world and desktop PCs were just beginning to have some processing power. Today that time is literally ancient computer history.

The average smart phone has more processing power and storage than even the best systems of that time. Software development in 2014 is more complex with a wide range of computer languages and the cutting edge development that is being utilized. Being fluent in a variety of computer languages and keeping up with emerging technology is the only way for you to stay current and gainfully employed.

You can have apps and computers that control your “health” how you eat, when you go to the gym, you get sent juice guides and diets to your phone while the same programs count your calorie intake and how much you burn while you train on your elliptical machine or when you go out for a run. We are very much in the hands of technology at the moment.

Granted the benefits, owning one can be a thrilling experience, but unfortunately there can be wide range of computer to choose from, thus making selection an upper hill task.

Best Air Compressor for Sandblasting

Tips in choosing the best air compressor for sandblasting

best air compressorSandblasting is the act of cleaning a surface or area at high velocity using tiny bits of materials. Sand was commonly used for sandblasting. But, due to the outbreak of lung disease commonly known as silicosis, Sandblasters are now using small or relatively uniform particles such as slags, walnut shells and the like. Air compressor is just one of the different parts of sandblasting set-up. This refers to anything that will increase the amount of air in certain container. The increased pressure of air eventually creates force use for blasting or cleaning a surface or the like.  And due to the abundance of options of air compressor available in the market, good working knowledge about air compressor can help buyers buy for the best compressor for sandblasting.

Let it be noted that air compressor becomes a leading commodity among compressors due to its safe, clean, flexible and convenient features. Air compressors come in types and even sizes as well as their capacity.

Reciprocating or Piston compressors

The most common air compressor in the market today if ratings and online air compressor reviews (see here) are any thing to go by. It is known for its positive displacement  works by filling an air chamber with air  then reducing the chamber’s volume. Reciprocating compressors are ideal for internal combustion engine in a reverse process. The good thing for this kind of compressor is its simple in design, lower initial cost, easy to install and no need to use oil carryover. And it uses large range of horsepower. However, this type of air compressor has some known disadvantages like, most of the reciprocating or piston compressors do not run at full capacity of the time and are prone to vibration problems.

It is also practical to compare this type of air compressor to Rotary Screw Compressor to evaluate the best air compressor for sandblasting.

Rotary Screw Compressor

This type of compressor becomes functional by means of air filling the void between two helical mated screws and their housing. The increase of air pressure is achieved by the reduced volume caused by the turning on of the two helical screws. To achieved the desired cooling, lubrication and seal between screws, oil injected into the bearing and compression area. Like the reciprocating compressor, it has both the advantages and disadvantages. It has almost the same advantages to the reciprocating compressor but more of the disadvantages. These include the its limited air end life, high rotational speeds, shorter life expectancy, a lot of oil carryover caused by the injection of oil and its difficulty to manage in dirty environments.

Another type which buyer can compare with is the Rotary Vane Compressor. It has also the positive displacement compressor. Its compressor pump has the rotor, stator, and eight blades. Comparing this compressor with the Rotary Screw compressor, it has long life air end and is resistant to dirty environments.  However, it cannot handle high pressure of over 200 psi.

Now, evaluating these types of air compressor, buyers can surely pick for the best air compressor for sandblasting.

Tiger Wood’s Power Golf: A Real Golf Game

Tiger woodsThe game of golf has become very popular in recent years with more people going to the golf course with their clubs to hit that white golf ball each year. Personally, I have no idea about the game as such as I have never played it but I tried this game and found it quite fun. You play the game as Tiger Woods, a golf legend that has won everything that you can win as a golfer, and play 18 holes on the PGA Tour at a course called Pinehurts.

You start the game at the driving range hitting balls into a golf net, warming up and getting the tempo flowing. You then start to play and the twist is that instead of normal golf scoring, you get 2 plus points for a birdy, 1 minus for bogey and 2 for double bogey or worse. A par leaves you at zero. For those interested in golf and or looking for something different I thing you should check this game out.
