The following is an article that explores the potential (and frequently realised) uses of Fast Ethernet in both the personal sphere and that of business.
Strictly speaking Fast Ethernet is a term that is applied to Ethernet connections with a rate of 100Mb/s (i.e., 100 megabits, or 100,000,000 bits, per second). These Ethernet connections are termed as such because they are 10 times faster than the original Ethernet. In practice the term can also be applied to speeds which reach a thousand times faster than that.
Fast Ethernet allows the transfer of large amounts of data at a faster rate and it is this feature that has led to its various uses, as it improves the capabilities of existing technologies as well as unlocking opportunities previously prohibited by the limits of traditional Ethernet speeds.
Wide Area Networks
Fast Ethernet is essential for the capabilities of Wide Area Networks (WANs) which …
Since the introduction of telegraph and phones lines in the 19th century voice communication between people separated by distances each and every day has become a necessity. When phones were first introduced you would call the exchange and ask for the number and the telephone operator would connect you. Then with further developments the phone exchange became automated and you dialled the number yourself and the connection went through. Even the styles of phones have had many changes over the century from a black box to the slim line cordless phone, from jiggling the lever, through to the round dial and now push buttons
Now, with advances in technology we have VoIP or Voice over Internet Protocol. This technology connects users in an entirely different way from the ordinary analogue phone which used voice only. With analogue phones the signals are transmitted through wires but VoIP converts your voice to …
The iPhone 5. Apple’s new shiny product that’s drawing in millions for them. It’s the greatly anticipated next chapter for cellphones. But is it really worth shelling out $199 ($699 without a new contract) if you have the 4S?
The Initial Differences
Lets look at the differences. As you may have seen, the iPhone 5 is noticeably thinner and lighter, it’s longer, and overall just easier to hold in your hand. The outside is now a brushed aluminum, verses the glass surfaces in the 4S, which shows more scratches and fingerprints. So there’s some noticeable differences.
Looking at the phones, you’ll see that they share many similarities; such as their same volume control buttons, the same mute switches, microphones, the power buttons, and speakers. The iPhone 5 also uses a nano-SIM sd slot instead of the older micro one. Also, the iPhone5 dropped the usual 30-pin charging port …
Have you ever wondered what attracted you in a new iPad, new smartphone, or any other modern gadget? Was it its fascinating technology or its simplicity of design? Design has become an essential communication tool and it’s hard to imaging new technology without it. I wanted to look at the history timeline to define correlation between technology and design and their impact on each other. I used an art history timeline to compare evolution of both areas.
1750-1850 The Industrial Revolution and Romanticism.
The first prominent interaction between technology and design (art at that time) began with the Industrial Revolution. Needless to say, the Industrial Revolution was the starting point in modern technology development and has changed the social, economic and cultural conditions of the times.
Design existed mostly in the form of art at that time and was in transition from Baroque movement (1600-1750) to Neoclassicism (1750-1850) and later …
