Twenty Years Later, The Web Is Finally Turning Into a Computer

int_blog_academy,  Tuesday, March 17th, 2009

On March the 13th, the Web turns 20 years old. In the TED talk, Tim Berners-Lee recalls how he invented the World Wide Web twenty years ago. It was a “play project” that his boss let him do on the side. Berners-Lee notes that the original Web was for connecting documents together online, and then argues quite eloquently why the Web now has to evolve from linked documents to linked data.

Of course, that evolution is already well under way. The Web is becoming a massive interlinked computer, and computers need data. As more and more data becomes linked across the Web, the more that it can be accessed, analyzed, and computed. As Berners-Lee says, “Data is relationships.”

Top Tip for Going Green at Work

int_blog_academy,  Tuesday, January 6th, 2009

More Work, Less Energy

For many people, a computer is the central tool at work. Optimizing the energy settings for computers and other devices can be more than a modest energy saver. Set computers to energy-saving settings and make sure to shut them down when you leave for the day (“standby” settings will continue to draw power even when not in use). By plugging hardware into a power strip with an on/off switch (or a smart power strip), the whole desktop setup can be turned off at once (make sure to power down inkjet printers before killing the power—they need to seal their cartridges). Printers, scanners, and other peripherals that are only used occasionally can be unplugged until they’re needed. And of course, turn off lights in spaces that are unoccupied.

Know about 3G

int_blog_academy,  Saturday, January 3rd, 2009

3G stands for the third generation of wireless communication technology. It refers to pending improvements in wireless data and voice communications through any of a variety of proposed standards. The immediate goal is to raise transmission speeds from 9.5K to 2M bit/sec. 3G networks enable network operators to offer users a wider range of more advanced services while achieving greater network capacity through improved spectral efficiency. The recent IPhone has also been fully equipped with the 3G technology.

3G Wireless Combines a mobile phone, laptop PC and TV
Features includes:
– Phone calls/fax
– Global roaming
– Send/receive large email messages
– High-speed Web
– Navigation/maps
– Videoconferencing
– TV streaming
– Electronic agenda meeting reminder.

The first pre-commercial 3G network was launched by NTT DoCoMo in Japan branded FOMA, in May 2001 and the first commercial United States 3G network was by Monet Mobile Networks, on CDMA2000 1x EV-DO technology, but this network provider later shut down operations. The second 3G network operator in the USA was Verizon Wireless in October 2003 also on CDMA2000 1x EV-DO, and this network has grown strongly since then.

Google Earth 4.3

int_blog_academy,  Tuesday, December 2nd, 2008

Get the latest version of Google Earth which has added features that make it a necessity for those whose topographic desires are more serious. Version 4.3 adds day and night lighting, Street View, more 3D models, and faster rendering speeds.

Most of the interface’s real estate displays a rendering of the globe, which slowly zooms in on a satellite image of your destination once you’ve keyed it in. The control panel has changed again, but the real draw is the addition of Street View, an on-the-ground 360-degree look at the premises that users may recognize from Google Maps. Also gracing the virtual globe is an option to illuminate it in real-time.

Everything from roads and restaurants to crime statistics can be displayed; subcategories and individual items can be unchecked to show only what you need. Google’s driving directions are incorporated, and the user community has produced several nifty mods, including historical maps. There’s also integration with Google’s 3D rendering program SketchUp, which you can use to place buildings and other ornamentation in a real-life setting.

The only downside to the program is that it can consume a large amount of RAM.

The mouse is 40 yrs old

int_blog_academy,  Tuesday, December 2nd, 2008


The computer device could be called as being the most “in touch” with humans – is the mouse, which turned 40yrs old on Monday 1st of December, 2008.

The first computer mouse, developed 4 decades ago, was a little wooden box with a single red button on top and a wire hanging from the back, because of which it was resembling to a rodent. And while computers have transformed from big white boxes to cool flat screens and laptops, the mouse has stayed the same.

It was designed by Douglas Engelbart, who was not a rich man as he never got any royalties because the patent expired before the mouse became a necessity.

What is IMAX

int_blog_academy,  Friday, November 21st, 2008

SEE MORE, HEAR MORE, FEEL MORE

IMAX AND IMAX 3D THEATRES
In IMAX  the audiences feel like they are part of the action due to the specially designed theatres, breathtaking, crystal clear images projected onto giant screens and exhilarating sound from state-of-the-art digital sound systems.

In 2008, IMAX will launch its new digital projection system. The new system is designed to create the unparalleled image and sound quality of The IMAX Experience in a digital format. The new system will integrate a suite of proprietary IMAX technologies with dual digital projectors, multi-channel digital surround sound and IMAX’s world-famous theatre geometry that puts you IN the movie. The system will deliver the superior cinematic experience that IMAX moviegoers have come to recognize and enjoy, with stunningly crisp and bright images, as well as crystal clear surround sound, in both 2D and IMAX 3D.

Unlike conventional theatre sound systems, IMAX digital surround sound systems deliver multi-channel, uncompressed, full fidelity sound that is simply unsurpassed in depth and clarity. IMAX’s amplifiers generate up to 14,000 watts of power, not volume, to provide the audience with life-like sound. IMAX’s proprietary loudspeaker system delivers exacting volume and quality at every seat throughout the theatre. From a small drop of rain to an enormous clap of thunder, you’ll hear every shade and subtlety, regardless of where you are sitting.

The New IMAX theater is going to be inaugurated at the Mani Square Mall, Kolkata. It will definitely be a boon for cine lovers.
