INTEL Vs AMD

When choosing a computer CPU it usually comes down to two choices: AMD or Intel. The CPU wars between these two corporations have been going on for years, even resulting in antitrust charges filed against Intel several times. However no matter what company you prefer, you have to agree that competition is great for the consumers since it drives the prices down and promotes innovation.

DIGITAL SLR TECHNOLOGY

Digital “SLR” stands for single lens reflex. An SLR camera lens that uses a mechanically controlled mirror system and prism to allow light to expose itself to the camera sensor only during the period of exposure right after the shutter is clicked. Digital SLR cameras are preferred by professional photographers because they feature interchangeable lenses and an accurate portrayal of what a shot will look like.

IPAD 3

The new iPad, the iPad 3, the new iPad 3… call it what you want, but it’s a device that from the outside looks remarkably like the iPad 2 but with an overhaul on the innards.
The question most people ask us when it comes to the new iPad is: what’s different from the old one?
Well, in this case it’s pretty easy: there’s a Retina Display that makes everything looks superbly crisp, an updated A5X processor bringing quad-core graphics and a 5MP camera on the rear with a VGA sensor on the front.
Oh, and the iPad 3 is also the device that brings iOS 5.1 to the masses.

Retina Display

Before we get onto all the normal insight over the frame of the new iPad, it’s worth talking about the main feature: the Retina Display.

Apple has packed a huge amount more pixels into the 9.7-inch screen – 1536 x 2048 to be exact. However, despite the fact that the Cupertino brand makes a big thing about the 330 PPI density of the iPhone 4, we’re looking at a screen that’s technically a lot less sharp than its smartphone brethren – around 264PPI.

Key features

  • 9.7″ LED-backlit IPS LCD touchscreen, 2048 x 1536 pixels; scratch-resistant, oleophobic coating
  • Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n connectivity, carrier-dependent hotspot support

Virtual Retina Display

A virtual retinal display (VRD) is a head-mounted display system that projects an image directly onto the human retina with low-energy lasers or LCDs. VRDs can give the user the illusion of viewing a typical screen-sized display hovering in the air several feet away.The user sees what appears to be a conventional display floating in space in front of them.

Water Powered Vehicles

I guess many of you have heard about vehicles run by water, i also know that many of you have thought that this is confined to a concept and dosent work in real time….but if you go through this article u will be convinced to accept that it is true….

Yes, you can run your car on water. All it takes is to build a “water-burning hybrid” is the installation of a simple, often home-made electrolysis cell under the hood of your vehicle. The key is to take electricity from the car’s electrical system to electrolyze water into a gaseous mixture of hydrogen and oxygen, often referred to as Brown’s Gas or HHO or oxyhydrogen. Typically, the mixture is in a ratio of 2:1 hydrogen atoms to oxygen atoms. This is then immediately piped into the intake manifold to replace some of the expensive gasoline you’ve been paying through the nose for these last couple of months. These simple “kits” will increase your fuel economy and decrease your bills and dependence on foreign petroleum by anywhere from 15 to 300 percent.

Benefits

If water cars could be developed and used by every person then we would have no need to have for gas stations, oil refineries and tankers. There would be no much more require for drilling for oil. The corner gas station would be a distant memory. In addition, the Ozone layer would return to pre-industrial conditions with out any holes and the smog would disappear. Our environment would be a lot cleaner.

Water cars are cheaper. Water costs a lot less than gasoline. And it is quite effortless to get water to fill up your car.

Water cars are significantly better for the environment as they create no emissions. As a result they will not contribute to global warming.

Water is always being produced. It is very unlikely the earth will ever run out of water. And making use of a water-powered vehicle it may support the environment. Water cars, using a procedure known as electrolysis, send oxygen into the atmosphere. The oxygen can bind with hydrogen in the atmosphere to item water in the form of rain and snow.

Disadvantages

Water cars, if they came on the market, would be extremely costly as they cost a lot to generate. Even so, there are developers working to make a less expensive vehicle.

The water cars that are becoming developed these days still use what is called brown gas and it is mixed with water utilizing a approach referred to as electrolysis to produce power for the car. So this sort of water card would still need gasoline. Even so a lot much less gas would be required and it would not have to be as refined to do its job.

There are some skeptics that say the concept of a water vehicle is one large scam and is an impossibility. Only time will tell as there are folks that believe in this procedure and are diligently working to create an powerful and reasonably priced water powered vehicle.

Water cars may well still a dream of the future. However, if they do come to fruition, these amazing low pollution vehicles will be the answer to high gas and oil costs. They will really contribute to the well being of our environment.

These days however we can only rely on conservative driving to get us where we want to go. Or, better however the foot-powered bicycle is a excellent alternative to save on gas and avoid pollution or look to public transportation and shoe leather as alternate means of transportation until the water car is ready for the market.

About Snapdragon

Snapdragon is a family of mobile system on chips by Qualcomm. Qualcomm considers Snapdragon a “platform” for use in smartphones, tablets, and smartbook devices.

The original Snapdragon CPU, dubbed Scorpion, is Qualcomm’s own design. It has many features similar to those of the ARM Cortex-A8 core and it is based on the ARM v7 instruction set, but theoretically has much higher performance for multimedia-related SIMD operations. The successor to Scorpion, found in S4 Snapdragon SoCs is named Krait and has many similarities with the ARM Cortex-A15 CPU and is also based on the ARMv7 instruction set.

All Snapdragon processors contain the circuitry to decode high-definition video (HD) resolution at 720p or 1080p depending on the Snapdragon chipset. Adreno, the company’s proprietary GPU technology, integrated into Snapdragon chipsets (and certain other Qualcomm chipsets) is Qualcomm’s own design, using assets the company acquired from AMD.

Snapdragon chipsets, as of 2011, include a CPU “Krait” (with speeds up to 2.5 GHz), GPU “Adreno 225”, 2G/3G/4G modem, and severalHexagon DSP coprocessors.
