Well said that the ‘contemporary society is nothing but a technology juggernaut’ and the phenomena is driven and shouldered by engineers. While other technological inventions may have had already been developed prior to the foundation of science, “technology” is not yet a proper term for such. The word technology, after all, is always correlated with science and both science and technology are mutually inclusive to one another, strictly speaking in terminologies. Computers of today, however advanced they may seem, have had its origins in humble beginnings. Socializing: People access the Internet to socialise and to connect with other people with similar interests. The rise of social media has played a big role in making the Internet more popular than ever. Using the new technique, a neuroscientist can order a design which the engineering team can transform into a computer model which feeds instructions to the printer. The printer then applies … Read the rest

The history of gadgets spans as far back as humanity itself – since hominids began creating tools to make their lives easier. So here are a few ideas for projects. The simplest experiment with electricity might be an exploration of conductors versus insulators. A conductor is simply a material through which electricity will flow with little resistance; an insulator prevents electricity from flowing. This can be tested by creating a simple circuit with a battery and a light bulb. If a material completes the circuit, the light bulb will luminesce, indicating that it is a conductor. Most metals are conductors, while most nonmetals are insulators. Therefore, it will not be a surprise to see that silver and copper are conductors, while cotton and glass are insulators. However, you may be surprised by the results of lead (a metal) or graphite (a non-metal). Epoxy molding engineering plastics mainly include epoxy molding … Read the rest

The history of electronics is a story of the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries and of three key components—the vacuum tube , the transistor, and the integrated circuit In 1883, Thomas Alva Edison discovered that electrons flow from one metal conductor to another through a vacuum. The ability to store and execute lists of instructions called programs makes computers extremely versatile, distinguishing them from calculators. The Church-Turing thesis is a mathematical statement of this versatility: any computer with a certain minimum capability is, in principle, capable of performing the same tasks that any other computer can perform. Therefore computers ranging from a mobile phone to a supercomputer are all able to perform the same computational tasks, given enough time and storage capacity. Textured protein contains MSG.

Mobile computing will never be the same with the advent of Seamless Wi-Fi’s S-Gen UMPC, or Ultra Mobile Personal Computer. That means you get Ubuntu Linux with a heavily customized GNOME desktop environment that looks a lot like macOS. It also means that you won’t have to do all the customization all by yourself to make Ubuntu look like MacOS Gmac already does it for you. Plus you get to keep your Ubuntu distribution. There are tools for moving VEs across different Virtuozzo servers in the event of a disaster. A SAN is not really required (which must be a big plus). That reduces costs tremendously and Virtuozzo claim that you can move live applications while data is in transit (“up to the last moment”). A quick check with the Wine Web site showed that Photoshop was indeed among the 4,398 Windows applications that would run under Wine. Twitter provides … Read the rest

There are many universities that offer Computer Engineering either as a degree program or as a sub-discipline of Electrical Engineering. This is an exciting development for those who wish to live off the grid and produce their own electricity. Unfortunately, the scaled down fuel cell model that is designed for homeowner and small business applications is not cheap, with the equipment costing approximately $56,000 for a 5 kilowatt system, which does not include the labor necessary to install the small-scale fuel cell electrical generator (which adds a few thousand dollars to the overall cost). However, the cost for a small-scale fuel cell electrical generator can be offset in some jurisdictions by government grants and tax credits, and the cost is likely to come down over time as small-scale fuel cell electricity generation becomes more common and the equipment is mass produced. It is used in industrial mobile computing devices to … Read the rest

Electrical engineers are very important in the fields of technology. Put another way, such an appraisal determines whether the pre-requisites of a successful project have been covered and good choices have been made in regard to (i) location, (ii) plant capacity, (iii) raw materials requirements and (iv) other such factors as availability of required professional, technicians and workers. In addition, project costs are estimated and subsequently manufacturing costs are worked out. Adverse environmental impact, if any, is also visualized and efforts are made to reduce it through a better project design incorporating treatment of effluents and noise abatement. Yes, the waves from the cell phones are harmful to our physical body such as our heart, but most of us cannot avoid it. It can affect our heart and internal organs. Recent study tells that even reproductive organs are adversely affected by waves that come from cell phones. It is better … Read the rest

Engineering is considered to be a discipline, an art and a profession that seeks to apply scientific theory towards designing, developing and analyzing technological solutions. Dropped calls” is a phrase that has popped up in force since cellular phones made the scene. This phrase is often heard in relation to cell phone service but is rarely associated with a home phone. Reliability is one factor that just can’t be argued when it comes to the advantage of landlines over mobile phones. Landlines receive much less interference than do cell phones. Even in a storm, when cell phone reception is patchy, landlines are usually going strong. The modern era of electronics originated in the early twentieth century with the invention of the electron tube. An electron tube is a device that stores electric charges and amplifies (intensifies or strengthens) electronic signals. In 1947 the industry took a giant leap forward when … Read the rest

So Windows Vista is a raging success, and Mac OS X Leopard will be here later this year. Writing this week in the journal Cancer Research, Morgridge researcher Tiffany Heaster and colleagues describe using a combination of technologies to better reveal macrophage function and behavior. The team applied fluorescence imaging to measure the precise metabolic activity of cells , then combined it with 3-D microfluidic technology allowing them to see, in real time, how the cells migrate and what role they play. Citizen journalists are proliferating. Due to widespread dissatisfaction with the mainstream media and the ready availability of high definition video cameras and high-speed networks, private individuals are pooling their resources to create their own nightly news programs that directly compete with ABC, CBS, MSNBC, NPR, the BBC and others. These individual journalists are paid through private donations via Bitcoin. Bonato says additional research will help expand the understanding … Read the rest

An electrical and electronic installer is responsible for testing, operating and repair of equipment and tools that make use of electronic technology. The IEEE “Blue Book” discusses methods of installing and connecting low-voltage circuit breakers. The “Emerald Book” contains standard IEEE 1100. The “Emerald Book” is separate from the “Green Book” and was first published after the “Green Book”. IEEE Standard 1100 addresses the powering and grounding of electronics and high-tech electronics. Are you using the s7 slim or the AD-1000A? Cellphone accessibility is not listed on the features. PLDT didn’t specify it coz it’s PLDT exclusive. Since the gadget is fresh in their menu, I’m sure they’d allow the sim availability especially if a competitor appeared in the market. After a good workout, you’ll probably feel pretty tired.
