The right PC for you is the one that meets the lowest requirements for the purpose you need it for. So, before you buy one, ask yourself “What am I going to use it for?” Great! Now you know what the right PC is for you!   Most of the people are buying the best that they can afford. There is no need to do that! You do not have to buy the most expensive one if you are going to use it for writing documents or if you are buying one for your kids.

So, when you are buying one, get the cheapest one that will get the job done.

Next thing which is as important as the previous is to not rush when buying PC.  If you saw an advertisement or you heard of a good PC that you like, don’t buy it right away, just don’t! Before you do that, you need to check its price in all the stores that sell the same one and make sure that you are buying it as cheap as possible. This actually applies to everything you buy, not only PC.

Now after you made sure you got the right PC and you are paying as less as possible, you can buy it and also save some money!

Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox

It is hard to choose which web browser to use if you don’t have any knowledge and you cannot compare them to see the difference. Google Chrome is more polished and Mozilla Firefox is more customizable. Google Chrome is better for a developer, that’s for sure, but on the other side, Firefox has better extensions and offers better privacy. But what they both got in common is that they are both good web browsers and they are both better and more used than Internet Explorer. There are always internet topics about this and there are always many people arguing about which web browser is better and they will never agree that one is better than the other.

The most discussed topic is security. Of course that is what most people are interested in since they share a lot of information on internet. Both of these web browsers have an anti-malware tool that warns users when they visit a web site that is known to install viruses, spyware and other malicious code. An early criticism of Google Chrome is the lack of a “Master Password” feature that Mozilla Firefox supports. Both Firefox and Google Chrome allow users to view the stored passwords in plain text. However, Firefox’s Master Password feature prevents unauthorized users to use this feature.

If you use internet to waste time and just have fun around discovering new stuff or maybe for using a social website then it doesn’t really make a difference which web browser you will choose.

Gmail or Yahoo,What is your pick?

Sooner or later, everyone creates an e-mail. But, there are many different ones. Most of the people think they are all the same and it does not make any difference if you have a yahoo or gmail one. But there is difference.  Here are some differences that help you choose the right one!

Gmail better than Yahoo because:

  1. Supports 40 languages! Yes, 40! Compared to the 27 that Yahoo supports.
  2. Account deactivation after 9 months instead of Yahoo’s 4 if you are not active.
  3. Labels feature available.
  4. You can voice chat with your friends.
  5. Gmail is faster than Yahoo. You can get from one to another message in gmail in no time, which takes a lot more time to do the same in yahoo.
  6. Much better spam protection than yahoo.
  7. Gmail allows attachment size of 20MB compared to  the 10MB of Yahoo unless you pay to become a premium user and you can attack files up to 20MB which is free on gmail already!

Yahoo better than Gmail because:

  1. Yahoo has unlimited storage space. Gmail has 6GB which is increasing but is still limited.
  2. Sort feature available which means it is much easier to organize.
  3. Easier to use.

Overall, Gmail seems much better than Yahoo and having an e-mail on gmail is better.

Facebook or Twitter

Social network sites are getting more and more popular every day and there are more new sites trying to get more people registered. But the most popular are Facebook and Twitter. But which one is better? Well people say “Facebook is for connecting people you go to school with, while Twitter is for connecting with people you wish you had gone to school with.” I will compare both of them and you choose which one is better.

Facebook is better than Twitter because:

  1. Facebook has 5 times more total users than Twitter.
  2. You can write a very long message on your wall, which is not allowed on twitter since there you can’t write more than 160 words in same “tweet”. So it has unlimited post length.
  3. You can chat with your friends easier.
  4. There are lots of games that you can play if you’re bored on Facebook.
  5. You can organize your photos much better.
  6. Available in 70 languages! Yes, 70 languages compared to Twitter’s 29.

 

Twitter is better than Facebook because:

  1. According to many people, Twitter is more fun.
  2. Twitter is better for making new friends.
  3. There is less emotional attachment to the people on twitter. The friends there are not as same as the friends on facebook.
  4. Thanks to hashtags you can easily find other people talking about the same thing.

E-books and e-readers

E-books are becoming more and more popular every day! Instead of buying a book and waiting for it for a couple of days, you can buy one online and read it on your computer. Plus you save space at home as-well!

There are many benefits from e-books:

  1. An e-book can be ordered indefinitely, without even going “out-of-print”.
  2. Depending on the device, the book can be read even at night, without light.
  3. Printed books use 3 times more raw materials and 78 times more water to produce than e-books. However, the manufacture and distribution of e-book hardware (both the readers and the servers from which books are downloaded) consume materials and energy; the disposal of e-book hardware creates electronic waste; and the storage, distribution, and reading of e-books consume energy.

E-book reader, also called an e-book device or e-reader, is a mobile electronic device that is designed primarily for the purpose of reading e-books and digital periodicals. An e-book reader is similar in form to a limited purpose tablet computer.

Some of the major book retailers and multiple third-party developers offer free (and in some third-party cases, premium paid) e-Reader applications for the Mac and PC desktops as well as for Android, Blackberry, iPad, iPhone and Palm OS devices to allow the reading of eBooks and other documents independently of dedicated e-book devices (such as the Amazon Kindle, Barnes & Noble Nook, Kobo eReader and Sony Reader)

Driverless car

December 12th, 2013 § 0 comments § permalink

 photo driverless-5_zpsce6bac92.jpg

Driverless or also known as autonomous cars are an autonomous vehicle capable of fulfilling the human transportation capabilities of a traditional car. As an autonomous vehicle, it is capable of sensing its environment and navigating without human input. Robotic cars exist mainly as prototypes and demonstration systems. Currently, the only self-driving vehicles that are commercially available are open-air shuttles for pedestrian zones that operate at 12.5 miles per hour (20.1 km/h)

If you ask some older people about this, you can get two types of answer. Some of them will be very skeptical and say that this will never happen in real life. But others will give the traditional answer that everything is possible and in the future there will be even more amazing things that will happen.

Many people have read in newspapers about this and I am sure everyone will agree that it is a great thing but, is it going to happen or not? Well according to some websites, Volvo expects vehicles that can be autonomous at up to 31 miles (50 km) per hour, with expected use in heavy traffic this year! By 2018, Google expects to release their autonomous car technology and by 2020, Mercedes-Benz, Audi, Nissan and BMW all expect to sell autonomous cars.

Everything sounds great, all we have to do is wait and hope that one day we will have our own autonomous car.

BMW Mercedes-Benz and Audi

BMW, Mercedes-Benz and Audi are the big German trio of luxury automakers.

BMW is short for Bayerische Motoren Werke and it is a German automobile, motorcycle and engine manufacturing company which was found in 1916. It is also world-wide popular company and synonym for high-quality cars and motorcycles. It has revenue of over 75 billion euros!

Mercedes-Benz, apart from automobiles, is also making buses, coaches and trucks and it is interesting that it took part in the world championship in 1954 and 1955, but despite being successful with two championship titles for Juan-Manuel Fangio. The company left the sport after just two seasons. He is considered by many to be the best F1 driver in history

Audi is the youngest out of all these three. Audi is “only” 81 years old compared to BMW’s 97. The largest shareholder of Audi is Volkswagen AG, which holds approximately 99.5% of the share capital. Volkswagen includes the consolidated accounts of Audi in its own financial statements.

What all these three automobile companies have in common is that all of them are world-wide popular and it is hard to find someone that has never heard about any of them. They are great innovators and they introduce at least one new model every year. If you want to buy a car, and you buy BMW, Mercedes or Audi, you should know that you haven’t made a mistake at all.

Bing or Google?

I am sure that everyone that is using internet for any reason has used either Bing or Google to find something. But which one is better? There are many people with different opinion about it. Google is more popular and a lot more used, but is it better? At the end of the article, you can make an opinion and choose which one is better.

Bing is better than Google because:

  1. Unique Search Operators Like LinkFromDomain

  2.  Video search – Bing shows you a grid of video thumbnails that will play a preview if you hover over an individual result. It has many of the same filters that YouTube’s own search has (though Google proper lacks these options), and adds related searches. 

  3. Find online courses

  4. Bing rewards – By doing searches and using Bing features, you rack up credits that can be used to buy things like gift cards or movie tickets. 

 

Google is better than Bing because:

  1. Speed –Google understands the value of speed. The search giant has made it clear with each revision to its service that it wants people to get to its home page

  2. Google has been at it for much longer time and Experience plays a significant role in Google’s and Microsoft’s ability to compete in the search space.

They are both great and the difference between them is not big. Whichever one you use will get the job done, that’s for sure.

Where am I?
