BlackBerry Cell Phone Review

Bookmark and Share

A permanent access to all your emails... You dream about it? Blackberry phone did it. The BlackBerry is a wireless handheld device introduced in 1999 which supports push email, mobile telephone, text messaging, internet faxing, web browsing and other wireless information services. Same size as a PDA, with a mini keyboard, BlackBerry device allows you to receive and reply to emails.

How does it work? Connected to a cell phone network (Cingular BlackBerry, T-Mobile BlackBerry, Sprint BlackBerry, Nextel BlackBerry and Verizon BlackBerry), terminal BlackBerry regularly query the email server of the user. When a new email arrives, the terminal signals it. The user can then read the message and reply. Innovation comes from the fact that synchronization of the emails with the messaging server is real time through the cell phone network it is connected and it supports both GSM, GPRS and UMTS.

Of course, BlackBerry service is more specifically dedicated to companies. The devices are very popular with some businesses, where they are primarily used to provide email delivery to roaming employees. To fully integrate the BlackBerry cell phone into a company, the installation of BlackBerry Enterprise Server is required.

But the popular device BlackBerry that allows reading emails using cell phone network is forbidden in some companies. Indeed, some security experts fear about communications being intercepted. However, Research In Motion (RIM), editor of BlackBerry, claims that all the traffic is encrypted from start to end by the Blackberry servers installed in companies. In fact it has the exact same security level as a traditional VPN if correctly configured.

A Blackberry handheld allows users to fulfill their need of communication but also give them the feeling of control that a phone conversation doesn't offer. More and more professionals often work in mobility situation and need to permanently be connected to computing system of the company.

The professional Blackberry is a "all in one" terminal, phone/PDA/messaging, which design is optimized to allow users to manage emails on the go and to access various applications. The original BlackBerry device had a monochrome display, but all current handsets have color displays.

Most BlackBerry devices is equipped with a full QWERTY keyboard, The ease of keying in and sending not only emails, but also SMS, is particularly practical, even if they do not have a BlackBerry.

Know About Green Technology

Bookmark and Share
The companies are getting concerned about the e-waste. The disposal of such wastes is difficult as only small part of such waste can be recycled and the other are dumped at places and that pollutes the environment. The technology is thus being developed to solve such problems. The electronic industry is thus taking up such challenges and improving its products so that they are less harmful to the environment. Welcome to the green technology.

The technology has gained importance recently. The companies are developing products that have multiple functions, can be recycled and consume lesser of the energy thus contributing to the environmental safety.

It's a trend to be green particularly in the technology dependent industry. Such industry rely heavily on the use of the products that are non recyclable and consume more energy. Say for example computers, these are every where. They are used by us and in the offices, stores and are replaced continuously with the new advancement in the technology taking place. But when we replace the older computer with the newer one where does our old computer go? Where do the other parts of the computer or our electronic goods go when we buy the new ones? They are in fact dumped at certain places mostly the developing nations where the materials in them seep into the ground and pollute the earth and the ground water. Yes, we are generating a huge amount of electronic waste or e-waste which is hard to be managed. It's of no use, as only small part of it is recycled and the rest remain lying some where with the question of what can be done with this waste stuff.

Also the electronics we use are consuming large amount of energy that is generated form non renewable sources. These sources are getting depleted and thus the concern is what will happen when these sources are used completely.

The companies are getting concerned about such things and bringing innovations that are more eco friendly, consumer friendly, with multiple use and can be recycled.

The recent is the MacBook by Apple that has no PVC, no mercury and the lower part of this notebook is made of aluminum. The absence of mercury and PVC make it less polluting and the aluminum make it recyclable thus making it more environment friendly. iPods by Apple which are mercury and bromine free are examples of green technology.

Panasonic launched its new version of plasma television which consumes about 96 percent less power. More use of biofuel, use of solar energy, wind energy is all green technologies.

Business & Technology Crack

Bookmark and Share
Many people say that the business drives the technology whereas some people say that the technology drives the business. It is really unknown that which is really responsible for what and I must say that the emergence of the information technology has really made it even more complex. All the people who are involved in the business as well as the technology are really in dilemma that which theory is correct. However I have different ideas. I feel that sometimes the technology drives the business and sometimes the business drives the technology. In fact it is right to say that the business and technology are interdependent. I would like to prove the same with the help of this article.

Just think that when it was decided that each company should have a board of directors. I must say that this is really a very old practice. Even the ancient Romans too had this in their administration. I really feel that this indicate that the technology came afterwards and hence business need lead to the evolution of the technology. For example the telegraph became famous because of the Reuters. In deed it was the biggest news agency in the world which first used the telegraph for their work. There are many more examples.

The industrial revolution which brought about the great change in the field of the business was ignited due to the invention of the steam engine. This really made the world of business grow fore fold throughout the world. This gives us the indication that the technology played an important role for business to become global. In fact the technology is responsible for the globalization of the business.

But this does not mean that the technology drives the business. Yes, you can say that the technology increases the speed at which the business activities are performed. But saying that the business is driven by the technology is still not correct.

Let me explain you another side of this topic. You know why the telegraph was discovered. Yes this happened because the world of business needed this. The Reuters were the first to use the telegraph and they become the best in the world. Hence can we say that the technology works as the cutting edge so that one business leads over the other? Yes this is really the truth and this time we are absolutely right. This is really the main thing about the relationship between the technology and the business.

One can only say that with the help of technology you can win the race which is on among the rivalry businessmen. Let's think about the issue of the first paragraph and I am quiet confident to say that sometimes the business is driven by the technology and sometimes the technology comes into vicinity because of the business needs

Important Part of Buying a Digital Camera

Bookmark and Share
The most important part of buying a digital camera is making sure that
the one you select meets all of your needs.

Digital Camera 101

Better digital cameras uses a chip called a "Charged Coupled Device"
(CCD) instead of film. Light enters the camera, through the open
shutter, and strikes the CCD where it is converted to digital data
before being stored in the camera's memory.

While that is the simple description, things can get pretty
complicated from there.

Megapixels & Resolution

Resolution is a measure of how many pixels are used to make a digital
copy of an image. Pixels are tiny dots of light that make up a digital

The quality of a digital camera's image is usually measured in
'Megapixels' where each megapixel represents one million pixels.

Here's how to determine how many megapixels you'll need depending upon
the type of photos you will be taking and what you intend to do with

1 megapixel

Almost obsolete, you might still find these in cell phones, PDAs, and
desktop "web" cameras. They're OK if you only intend to email pictures
to other people and those people aren't going to be printing them.

1.1 to 2 megapixels

Only slightly better than the 1.0, this resolution is OK for an average
4x6 snapshot, but it isn't going to be a production quality image.

2.1 to 3 megapixels

This is the beginning of the decent camera range. You get very good 4x6
images and reasonably good 5x7 images. These cameras are low cost and
provide a good platform for beginners.

3.1 to 4 megapixels

You are qualified to say that you have a "pretty good" camera. You get
professional quality 4x6 images, real good 5x7 and 6x9 shots, and
somewhat decent, but not great 8x10 images.

4.1 to 5 megapixels and up

People will be saying "Hey, great pictures!". You can count on
professional images all the way up to 8x10's. Of course, as the
megapixel count goes up, so does the price.

If you are only going to be viewing your pictures online, such as
posting them at a photo site or using them on your web pages, keep your
money in your pocket and pick yourself up something in the 1.5 megapixel

If you will be shooting pictures that will be printed at a print house,
such as for brochures, postcards, etc, then you will need at least a 5
megapixel camera if not higher. Of course, you'll also need to have a
fat wallet or a lot of open to buy on your credit card because, even
thought prices are steadily falling, these puppies aren't cheap!

Once you've solved the megapixel puzzle, the rest of a digital camera's
features, such as lens types, storage capacity and shutter speed are
pretty routine and easy to understand. You shouldn't have a problem
deciding on those features.
