Christians and Computers

When the Internet first started to really get major synergy going many religious people claimed it was the coming of the Beast. Needless to say they were not the early adopters. Today almost every religious organization has a website and many even pay for key words. Paying up to $ 2.00 for Google "Key Words" for things words like; God, Church, Sunday Worship, etc.

It appears that those who condemned the Internet early on, as a sign of the beast and the temporary demise of the Earth through their belief in revelation in the literal sense have made a complete 180. Today, one of the largest sectors on the Internet is that of religious websites. Why are we always getting in the way of our species' forward progress? Religious groups should have embroidered the Internet for its communication value. Instead they bought it like the plague. Each time a new technology or concept comes of age, we find our civilization is caught in a time warp. Even the Catholic Church said it would probably keep things the same, even if it meant the Church became smaller or had to consolidate.

We currently are divided over right to life abortion issues, stem cells and Major Religions and in all this sound and fury is there really any room for the Next Thing? And when the Next Big Thing happens will we embrace it or will we use it as fuel for the fire to further partition us? Are we stifling innovation, real discoveries which might improve our quality of life and standard of living? Are we doing this to help organized religion maintain its grip until it can catch up or get on board with the rest of us? Why do we do that, think on this for me. …

Seven Things That Could Make Your Gadgets Obsolete

Thinking about buying a new TV, Blu-ray player, or even laptop? Well maybe you should think again because we saw some technologies at CES 2010 that could make a gadget you buy today obsolete very soon.

HDMI 1.4

HDMI is the standard for moving digital media like surround sound audio and high definition video from a source like a Blu-ray player, game console or receiver to your TV or other device. The current standard is HDMI 1.3 with variations like 1.3a, b, and so on. HDMI 1.4 is the latest standard that not only adds support for 3DTV but adds an Ethernet channel that allows the cable to be used to transfer networking data at speeds up to 100Mb/sec for things like IPTV and DLNA (see below). The good news is that high speed HDMI 1.3 cables (the expensive ones) will support HDMI 1.4 features except for the Ethernet channel the bad news is you’ll need a new device for the old cable to work with.

USB 3.0

They would prefer you call it SuperSpeed USB but whatever you call it, it’s much faster than the older USB 2.0. USB 3.0 or SuperSpeed boasts a speed improvement of around 10X over USB 2.0 with transfers up to 300 or 400 megabytes per second. SuperSpeed has been slow to be adopted. Intel, who is promoting a competing technology based on optical cables called Light Peak, has said it won’t support SuperSpeed for another year. In fact, some people think Light Peak which claims 10 gigabit per second transfers might even replace USB especially if vendors like Apple adopt it. Meanwhile, Microsoft is in the process of creating SuperSpeed drivers for Windows 7. The good news is USB 3.0 is picking up speed (haha). We saw SuperSpeed external drives, adaptors, and even a laptop at CES 2010.

3DTV

If you are planning on buying a high end HDTV this year, you may want to consider waiting for a 3D-capable version. A 3D LCD TV (or Plasma) will have a fast refresh rate of at least 120Hz (240Hz is better), circuitry to decode the various 3D broadcast formats, a 3D glasses interface (if it uses active shutter glasses which it most likely will), and HDMI 1.4 ports. We should see more sets appearing on the market in the second half of 2010.

DLNA

The Digital Living Network Alliance has been around since 2004. It now claims to be used in more than 5,500 devices. DLNA has been something of a sleeper for the last few years but at this year’s CES 2010 we kept hearing it mentioned in places like the Samsung booth where they were showing their vision of a “connected” house. We predict you will start seeing it featured more prominently in TVs, mobile phones, laptops, printers, and more. We understand that the DLNA standard might be enhanced to include support for MPEG-4 AVC and Bluetooth in the near future. We advise you to keep an eye on this standard and …

What is a Personal GPS Locator?

A personal GPS locator is a small and lightweight unit using assisted GPS technology to help more precisely and reliably determine the location of it. These on-demand locate requests can be done from the internet or from your cell phone.

If you’re using the internet, all you have to do is log in to a certain URL depending of the vendor of your GPS locator, click on a button and a real time location of you and your unit will be displayed on a map. It will also display the immediate neighborhood such as the closest street addresses. You will also be able to zoo m the map in and out as well as scroll it in any directions.

If you choose the cell phone option you just send a message to a number given by your personal GPS locator’s vendor and the same map with the same information as described above regarding the online alternative.

Define Your Safety Zones

A safety zone is another function enabled in some GPS locator models. This is a customized virtual boundary around a location and some models allow you to create several such zones that can be active simultaneously. For models that have this function, you can opt in to receive alerts via email or text messages when you enter or leave any of your self-defined safety zones.

Tracking Intervals

You can set the tracking intervals on your on most GPS locators. The more expensive the model is the shorter tracking intervals you can set, for example every minute, every 5 minutes etc.

History of Locations

Location history can be useful; therefore many models are equipped with this feature. The more expensive the model the more detailed information you normally get. With this feature you will have an overview of stored information so you can see where your GPS locator has moved in a certain periode of time, for example the past hour, day, week or even month. Models with this feature will often display the information on a map, that you are able manipulate as the real-time map, such as zooming and scrolling.

Power Alerts

Depending on the model of your personal GPS locator, you can be notified through email or text message when your GPS unit has been powered off or when the battery’s capacity level is at a certain level, for example when there is 20 percent battery power left.

As you may already know personal GPS locators are in the same class as cell phones and other electronic communication devices when it comes to aviation security, which means you can’t use them on airplanes.…

Old School Online Gaming

Ever wondered what your parents and the adults played for fun back in their day? Or before the existence of Nintendo Wii’s, Playstations, and World of Warcraft, what were the games that people played with the computer? Online gaming back then wasn’t as high-tech as what you play now but they delivered the same amount of fun that today’s online games give you. Take a journey down old time geekery and see what was deemed as hi-tech back then:

1.#TradeWars 2002

A space game developed in 1984. In TW2002, the player is a galaxy trader where the main objective is to gain control of a limited set and amount of resources, as you travel in different sectors of the galaxy. Using your gained wealth in trading, you can upgrade your spaceship, get better weapons and fight for control of planets and starbases.

2.#MUDs

Also known as Multi-User Dungeon, this is a text-based multiplayer real-time virtual world that started in 1978. It combined elements such as role-playing games, hack and slash, player versus player, interactive fiction, and online chat with a fantasy setting populated by fictional races and monsters. The objective of the game is to slay monsters, explore a fantasy world, complete quests, go on adventures, create a story by role-playing, and advance the character.

3.#MUSHes

MUSH, generally called a Multi-User Shared Hallucination, is somewhat of a text-based Second Life where you can create anything you want, be anyone you want, and do anything that you want in a multi-user game. With the popularity of MUDs in the 1980s, many variations emerged such as TinyMUD in 1989. MUSH was then created by Larry Foard who used TinyMUD’s code and added a different programming language.

4.#Hunt

The old school Before Doom, created in 1985 by Conrad C. Huang and Gregory S. Couch, is represented using ASCII characters on an 80×24 terminal screen. Hunt is a multiplayer game where each player wanders around a maze, killing off other players using guns, bombs, and slime. Players can also form a team. The maze, when destroyed, regenerates over time, during which “deflectors” appear, changing the direction of the projectile. Sometimes a “wandering bomb” appears, exploding when contact is made.

5.#Empire 3.84

Considered as the grandfather of all Internet games, Empire 3.84 is a risk-like conquer-the-world game with its original version appearing in 1971 on a PDP-11/45 mainframe computer at Harvard University. It gained popularity for being cited as one of Sid Meier’s inspiration for Civilization PC game series.

6.#BBS Door Games

Since the technology in the old days was pretty much text-based, online games back then usually were also text-based games played over the modem on an amateur-run bulleting board system (BBS). Supporting only one phone line, there wasn’t WiFi back then, so players usually had to take turns when playing, but still they can compete against each other.

7.#FIBS

The First Internet Backgammon Server pretty much tells us what it is, it’s the first backgammon server on the Internet. Started in 1992, it …

What You Need to Know About Satellite Internet Pricing

It may seem strange in this day and age, but there are still a large number of people in the United States alone which homes are located in places where wired broadband services such as cable and DSL are not available. For these people, satellite Internet broadband provides a high-speed alternative to slow-speed dial-up service. Wireless satellite technology is becoming increasingly popular among residents of rural and remote areas because it lets users do a number of things that dial-up does not. Probably the most enticing benefit that this service has to offer is speed. Of course, as can be expected, better service often means having to pay a bit more. But how much more? The following information will tell you all you need to know about satellite pricing to help you make an informed decision about whether or not it is worth it.

1. The first thing that you should realize is that, satellite Internet equipment, like any new technology, is not cheap. This is the primary reason why service providers will charge around fifty dollars a month for a satellite package. The exact price of your plan will vary depending on the specific connection speeds you receive. It only makes sense that the faster the speed of your connection is, the more you will have to pay.

2. That being said, there are things that you can do to save money on your satellite subscription. For starters, you should always take your time when selecting a service plan. Make sure that you do the proper research and thoroughly compare your various options. Do not look only at price, but also at what you are getting for your money.

3. Possibly fittingly, the best place to look for deals on satellite Internet is the Internet itself. A preliminary Google search to see what companies provide satellite service where you live will only take a few minutes.

4. Once you have a short list of providers in your area, you should look at what kind of upload and download speeches each one has to offer. Keep in mind that price is only relevant if you are aware of what you are paying for. One particular satellite Internet plan may cost half as much as another plan, but it might also be twice as slow. Another thing to think about when you are comparing connection speeds is that the quoted speed refer to the maximum rate, not the average.

5. Aside from monthly rates, you should also take into consideration whether or not a certain provider charges installation fees, and if so, how much these are. The initial set-up of your satellite Internet system can cost several hundred dollars, so, if possible you should choose a company that that waives this fee. Sometimes, in order to qualify for free installation, you will have to commit to a long-term contract.

6. You will also need to decide whether you are going to buy your own equipment or rent it from your provider. …

Fiction: it is impossible for this to be true when the method of viewing differs according to the type of browser software being used along with the difference in monitor sizes, resolutions and other user preferences that can be activated on the Internet.

In addition, people want the ability to control how they view websites; the more flexibility you offer them to customize their experience on your website to their liking the more satisfied they can be with the experience, providing of course that your content provides the information they need as well. If you limit your website design to be seen as you intended instead of giving people the freedom of choice, you may also limit your online business profitability.

How can you create website design for the browsers of your "target audience" when there is no way to know which browser and configuration your "target audience" is using and these are changing all the time? Are they a business owner on a laptop using Apple Safari in their hotel room or a person using Lynx to browse at the public library? Either way the browser they use does not influence their preferences in products or services. Website design that is created to be browser independent is your best option to reach your audience where they are and regardless of their computer specifications.

HTML 2.0 is the best coding to use for web pages to be accessible- Fact or Fiction?

Fiction: with the new backward compatibility features you can maintain web page accessibility using HTML 4.0, HTML 3.0, HTML 3.2 or HTML 2.0. The important thing to remember is to use features non-supporting browsers can handle, for instance using HTML tables can require extra attention and using style sheets provides an excellent workaround that can compensate for the short comings of some browsers.

In order for web pages to be accessible they must be created with boring content content only- Fact or Fiction?

Fiction: using style sheets in website designs affords you the ability to specify colors, fonts, and parameters allowing the visitor the option to see the style as designed or customize it to their preferences and still access the content. You can use the multimedia capabilities of the Internet to your advantage with images, video or audio and provide alternative content for those who do not want to utilize these features.

Writing accessible web pages is cost and time consuming-Fact or Fiction?
