The Latest in Mobile Computers

 by edmondshi


The recently released Honeywell Dolphin 9700 mobile computer, also referred to as a rugged digital assistant, further builds upon the HHP (Hand Held Products) line of Dolphin mobile computers. This handheld mobile computer is far beyond a mobile computer with an integrated barcode scanner, but a new device that that can help maximizes worker productivity and reduces operating costs. With its multi-functional data collection and communications capabilities in one reliable, easy-to-use device, mobile workers can perform a broad range of tasks including email, instant messaging, web browsing, barcode scanning, GPS tracking, picture taking and even video recording. It truly is amazing how advances in mobile computers continue to proceed at such a rapid rate.
According to Honeywell, the Honeywell Dolphin 9700 mobile computer was built from the ground up and features Honeywell's Adaptus Imaging Technology for advanced barcode scanning which ensures that barcodes are read accurately and fast. The built-in barcode imager is capable of reading both 1D and 2D barcodes and is set at an angle, allowing workers to scan barcodes while still providing a full view of the crisp 3.7" VGA screen. An optional 2 megapixel camera takes high quality color photos which is ideal for adding visual documentation to receiving orders or customer accounts that have been scanned. For communication, all Honeywell Dolphin 9700 units come with 802.11a/b/g and Bluetooth radios standards as well optional GPS and GSM/HSDPA cellular radios. For rugged barcode scanning applications, the Dolphin 9700 has an IP64 seal meaning that it completely protects the internals from dust and is resistant to splashes of water. The Dolphin 9700's rugged design also allows it to withstand 5 foot drops to concrete, making this device excellent for withstanding the rigors of day-to-day barcode scanning in the field or warehouse.
Another unique feature of the Dolphin 9700 mobile computer is that it is available in Honeywell's disinfectant-ready housings which are better able to resist the harsh cleaning chemicals used in healthcare environments. The reliable 9700 helps healthcare providers quickly and accurately perform bedside patient care including medication verification through bar code scanning, and more. With the large, bright display, and the high-speed wireless connection, healthcare providers can easily scan patient barcode information and quickly transmit it to the patients' electronic medical record. Additionally, the comfortable grip and Honeywell's Shift-PLUS power management system, which enhances productivity by powering real-time wireless and multi-media applications continuously for 8 hours or more, ensure that nurses have a device to support them throughout their entire shift.
Next month, we will take a look at the Motorola MC9500-K mobile computer and see what this new barcode capable handheld can do. If you need pricing or additional information on either the Honeywell Dolphin 9700 or the Motorola MC9500K, visit my recommended website at or contact a Mobile Computing specialist at (714)922-1140.

Edmond Shi has worked in the computer industry since the early 1980s when he began his professional life as a software developer. Now he is concern with different types of barcode printer and barcode scanner technology and product design.

One Of The Fastest Technologies

 by alfiery


Most of the companies especially the one dealing with e commerce and other related technological solutions on Internet are facing trouble with their central servers as more users are accessing the data during same time. This in fact is jamming the server without providing the requested information.

A new technology called content data network or CDN is developed in order to help such companies to prevent any more bottlenecks on the servers especially during the peak hours. This consists of large number of computers and they are all placed in different points on the network. All these computers are having same data thereby leading to redundancy. As a result whenever a user request for some information, the data from the nearest computer in the network will be accessed and passed on to the user. This will help in the fast delivery of data and also this process takes place without any loss of packets on its way. The users mostly will be requesting for the download of various streaming media video files, image files or audio files which requires high bandwidth for fast download to takes place.

This technology has bought many advantages for all Internet users. This will allow them to stick with their present Internet connection rather than moving with any advanced subscription plans thereby preventing them to pay more for Internet usage. More users are able to access same information at same time without having any trouble. Usually a trouble used to exist when all the data was placed on a single central server. This in a way has increased the number of servers and also increased speed of access and capacity of the network. In case if a fault occurs on any part of the network, it will not affect the functioning of the network as all the traffics will be diverted to all the other computers accordingly and it will perform the task easily without creating any downfall which was not the case with central server.

The number of computers connected within the network determines the architecture of the network. A large architecture is intended to cover large geographical location, and then more number of computers is required. There are many providers for CDN service. You can search on line in order to find different providers. You should carefully go through different quotes of these providers also the services provided by them and accordingly you should select the provider that suits your budget.

CDNFinder gathers CDN Provider data from all across the web and puts them into one convenient place. Examples of providers are Web Streaming,Video Streaming, etc. CDNFinder allows you to search for a specific provider, compare CDN providers, or buy CDN solution if have found what you are looking for.

Hard Drive 101: What You Need To Know

 by James.King


I can still remember the day when the first 1 gigabyte hard drive was released. At the time, it was unfathomably large for a personal computer user. "That has more storage that I could ever use." I thought. Today, hard drives top out in Terabytes rather than the gigabytes and operating systems alone like Windows 7 take up 16GB of storage. Today, the size of hard drives varies drastically. Notebook PC have hard drives that vary from 4GB up to 1 terabyte on souped up media laptops. Desktops are typically more robust with most featuring at least a 160GB with many multimedia systems boasting 750GB to 1 terabyte drives at a relatively affordable price (below $1,000). However, what do you really need, and what are the differences between hard drives?

Every computer has a hard drive. They are the main storage facility for your computer. Whenever you install a new program, save a document, or download something from the internet, it is stored somewhere on the computer hard drive. The storage size of a drive is in typically megabytes (1MB equals around one minute of music), gigabytes (made up of 1,000 megabytes), and terabytes (One terabyte equals 1,000 gigabytes). You might expect that the greater the storage capacity the better the drive, but that is not necessarily true. Since so much that your computer does is dependent upon the hard drive, the speed of the hard drive is critical. Hard drive speed is measured in the rate per minute (rpm) that they spin. Most drives will spin at 5,400 or 7,200 rpm but premium specialty drives are available at 10,000 or 15,000 rpm. With a faster hard drive, data can be accessed faster, thus speeding up almost everything that you do on your computer.

While every computer has a internal hard drives, external hard drives are also available which can offer many of benefits. Many users safely store and back up all of their important data against disk failure by using an external hard drive. Additionally, one of the best ways to speed up your computer is by freeing up your hard disk. Many people choose to use an external hard drive to boot up their hard drive if their internal drive is slower. For example, if their internal hard drive spins at 5,400 rpm, they could use an external drive that spins at 7,200 rpm to boot their computer, a process that can often take several minutes, in a much quicker time.

Both internal and external drives have their benefits. Internal drives are safe because of their secure and stable casing. Plus, with the fan cooling available on internal drives ensures that the drive stays cool. External hard drives are housed in boxes outside of a computer and are connected by firewire or USB drives. The potential benefits of an external drive include improved performance if the external drive is faster than the internal drive on your computer, durability versus many laptop hard drives which can be jarred as they are moved and the ability to be used as backup storage.

When you decide through the name and the outer feeling of the notebook, that you might like it, then it`s time to look inside.

Screen size might be an important issue for you. Do you want a big screen or is a smaller one okay as well.

Knowing the Basics of Computer Hardware

by Lisa Moore


 Who doesn"��t know what a computer is? In the modern world, computers are one of the most common technologies that one must learn to operate. Lack of knowledge about computers can cause you to get left behind in this technological era.

Elementary schools are mandated to teach the basic parts and functions of computer hardware. Computer hardware consists of the physical components of the computer. These include the central processing unit (CPU), monitor, keyboard, mouse and printer. Optional hardware devices such as digital cameras can also be installed, but these are not necessary for computer use. Most people install web cameras in their computer units solely for video chatting.

Storage devices are also considered hardware devices. There are four kinds of storage devices: hard drives, optical disks, floppy disks, and USB flash drives. Hard drives are normally found inside the CPU, acting as main data storage for important programs and system files. An optical disk is commonly used to store large files that do not require much editing, such as movie files and pictures. Floppy disk drives store data and information in thin, flexible vinyl tiles enclosed in a hard plastic material.

The most commonly used storage device by students and professionals alike is the USB flash drives. In information technology (also known as it consulting boston professionals recommend the use of these USB flash drives. These storage devices read and store memory in flash devices enclosed in a durable and plastic material. Because of their size and affordable price, they have already supplanted traditional memory storage devices such as floppy disk drives. Others call them "��thumb drives"�� because most USB flash drives are about the size of a thumb.

It is important to know that a computer is not a single gadget; it is a unit consisting of various hardware devices operating together. One should not attempt to assemble a computer without it consulting boston, Massachusetts has various IT services) to help in installing computer hardware devices. Knowing where to connect one device to another is important in computer assembly.

For people who want to purchase a computer unit for the first time, boston it consultants recommend a canvass of various computer brands and models before deciding on which type of computer to buy. This helps in choosing the best set of hardware for a given budget.

Use Linux for the Best Computer Security

by James Madison


 If you want a secure operating system you might consider Linux operating system. Linux is an open source operating system. This means that anyone can use the code, modify or redistribute under GNU General Public License. Due to its versatility, Linux can be loaded in PDA, smart phones, PC, tablet PC. Some of the fastest supercomputers are using Linux as operating system. Linux was not a very popular operating system at the time when it was launched. But with distributions like Ubuntu, SUSE, Mandriva Linux has proved that it can really replace other operating systems in case of Workstation and of course servers. You can get Linux set up support from a PC support service provider.

Now the question is that which is more secure Windows or Linux? Both operating systems have list of supporters and the debate will continue but one thing for certain, it is difficult to secure Window Operating System. On the other hand, it takes some time to become acquainted with Linux. But when security is concerned Linux is better as compared to Windows. Let"��s discuss the reasons.

First of all, an ordinary user of Linux does not have all access like executing a file or using a CD ROM drive. In order to execute a file or accessing a CD Rom drive you should be a super user or an administrator. This helps Linux to be a secure operating system. But it is worthy saying here that Windows NT operating systems are equally secure in this regard.

Again, we certainly know that number of users using Windows far exceeds users using any other operating system. Hence, hackers or crackers have the tendency to concentrate more on Windows than Linux operating system. Another one thing for sure is that Virus or Trojan horse written for Windows has no effect on Linux operating system.

Securing Linux is slightly easier than Windows as most of the tools are open source. On the other hand, when Windows operating system is concerned you might have to purchase one. This might be little expensive.

If you are new to Linux Operating System, you may or may not do well with Linux Operating System. But once you get used to it, you can easily do all the tasks like connecting to internet, sending mails, chatting, downloading, and watching a movie, listening to songs and that too without worrying about virus or spyware or adware.

Linux has its own firewall and once configured properly it will protect you against all odds. So if you want to try Linux without uninstalling your favorite OS you can do the same. So what you can do is to call up an expert who can guide you in proper way so that you can enjoy a virus free and secure computing.

Priced at $1,049 using the product we saw (Lenovo also provides a dialed-back edition concerning the Y460 at $899), the IdeaPad Y460 is reasonably affordable offered its effective configuration, which propelled it in the direction of the greatest of its school in conditions of performance. Our gripes with this product experienced been comparatively minor: an overly reflective fluid crystal display screen, and merely mediocre battery life.

As using the IdeaPad U450p we attempted not extended before to this model, the IdeaPad Y460 features a patterned dark finish. as opposed to the weave print, though, it is decorated receiving a sequence of intertwined hexagons in inclusion to other geometric shapes. A sliver of glossy copper trim frames the lid, complementing the matte finish.

A digital video disc burner and an ExpressCard/34 slot reveal space with plain USB and USB/eSATA-combo ports concerning the best edge.

Raising the lid exposes a roomy keyboard deck that's gunmetal gray concerning the decrease half and piano dark on the top. using the center is truly a standard world-class Lenovo keyboard; the dark keys are well-spaced and have just the best amount of give with out sensation as well mushy. The gesture-enabled touch pad (which lets you navigate the display with multiple-finger motions, just like you would on an Apple iPhone) can be considered a satisfaction to create utilization of and features a lightly textured finish off that provides effortless cursor control. The dual computer mouse buttons are whisper-quiet and extremely responsive.

At the best concerning the keyboard deck is truly only a little pair of JBL speakers which could be surprisingly loud and crisp for their size. Predictably, they lack bass (most mobile computer speakers do), but their audio tracks output is nonetheless a minimize above the norm. in the direction of the left concerning the backlit energy change is truly a hotkey that launches Lenovo's backup and restoration application, OneKey, and in the direction of the greatest of which could be wireless-network- and drive-activity indicators.

The roomy keyboard and touch pad are responsive as well as a satisfaction to use.

In the center is Lenovo"��s SlideNav bar, a touch-sensitive slider look after that lets you start pieces for example Calculator, Notepad, and seem Recorder, in inclusion to other pieces which you can include in your own.

You can unzip the display by dragging your finger from best to left. this could be truly a quite awesome attribute and one we haven't observed before.

This "zipped screen" attribute functions like a display saver and disables the touch pad, keyboard, and computer mouse buttons.

To the best concerning the SlideNav bar is truly a key that launches Lenovo"��s vitality operations utility, which lets you alter energy schemes concerning the fly, as well as a Theater key that switches among the three preset show modes (normal, movie, and intelligent). on the much best are volume-up, volume-down, and mute buttons. As using the energy switch, all of those upper-deck buttons are illuminated with light backlighting. A backlit IdeaPad logo is concerning the decrease right-hand portion concerning the keyboard deck.

The 14-inch show consists of a 1,366x768 resolution and utilizes a glossy coating to provide wealthy coloring reproduction and broad viewing angles.

(A light LED lights up once the dedicated chip is selected.) This implementation is not as seamless as Nvidia"��s Optimus technology, which switches instantly based on what you're undertaking using the laptop, but you do not should shut affordable when switching. So as extended when you recognize the right time and area to switch, it is quite straightforward.

Portability, superb performance, as well as a bold, eye-catching design are all decent motives to pick the Lenovo IdeaPad Y460 as your following thin-and-light notebook. Unfortunately, the complete point of switchable pictures can be to provide the option among the basic performance and battery life, but for this notebook, one of probably the most superb battery lifestyle you could get is nonetheless quite short, producing this a moot point. Even so, you do not ordinarily take place throughout this kind of basic performance on this dimension of laptop computer for this price, so if all those priorities all outweigh battery life, then this could be truly a severely powerful laptop computer choice.

Can Computers Learn to Repair Themselves to Make Life Simpler for Average Users?

 by Torri


Imagine a world without blue screen errors, spyware strikes, harmful Trojans or your operating system slowing down day by day. Imagine your laptop or netbook independent enough to address their ongoing concerns without taking the time and trouble from you. For an average computer user this might sound like a dream come true, as technology becomes more and more ubiquitous and complex and, leaving hundreds out in the cold when something goes down. This may be good news for IT repair shops, generating a steady inflow of jobs, big and small, but in the long run efforts to make machines more aware of the state they are in and possibly to teach them how to do comprehensive troubleshooting are bound to accelerate.

The question is whether this goal is even achievable? In lots of ways, consumers are witnessing technology improvements that are headed in the direction of self diagnostics and self-repair. Just a cursory look back in time at what the standard was for computers a decade ago or so is tell-tale. Most electronic devices, like digital cameras or music players, to say nothing of larger peripherals such as printers, came with sets of drivers, dedicated software and required time-consuming installations and updates. Since then, producers have put considerable investment into making life easier for users and now you are more likely to come across standalone, ready-to-go gadgets that take much of the technical bother behind the scenes.

Self-configuration is one powerful trend, also evidenced by how new computers tend to come with pre-installed operating system and some selected applications. The downside for customers is that they by accepting what producers load on machines for them, they give up their right to control initial content of their PCs. Unfortunately, the same side effect plagues other trends that see the autonomy of computers strengthened.

There is a lot of talk about technology that allows machines to self-optimize themselves. It may refer to hardware, for example when the battery is designed to shut down computer subsystems in order to save energy and lengthen its life span, or to software when the operating system is capable of taking decisions to improve its own environment before it degrades or slows down. Again, this involves a degree of trade-off between convenience and freedom to see optimization in your own terms.

It is no better with self-protection. Most anti-virus programs can completely rely on themselves, if you elect so, in getting updates or making security choices, but this may rob you of control over how your machine is run.

Self-healing technology looks unstoppable too, as increasing power of processing and efforts to program computers into greater autonomy make it possible to cede more responsibility to them. Visits to computer repair Miami or other cities offer may not be over anytime soon and computer support Miami or other desperate keywords are not likely to stop being typed in search engines overnight, but the future looks challenging for them as machines keep learning to respond to their own errors.

How to Recover Data From a Failed Hard Drive

 by Stephen Drummonsy


When the hard drive on your computer fails, you'll realise the importance of backing up your data. Sooner or later all computer hard drives fail. And I don't need to tell you how valuable your data is, because I'm sure you already know.

If you haven't backed up your data and you really need to get it off the failed hard drive, then your best option will be to hire a professional data recovery specialist. This can be expensive and if your hard drive is very badly damaged it's not always guaranteed to deliver results. But if the data is valuable, it will be a much better option than fooling around with the hard drive yourself if you don't have the right experience.

Remember a few important things before you opt for the do-it-yourself data recover option:

1. You will probably void any warranties that you got with the hard drive

2. Never open the hard drives casing. Exposing it to will cause even more damage

3. Make sure that you are grounded whenever you are working with any electrical equipment, otherwise you may damage it further with static electricity

If you've taken these precautions and you don't have the money to invest in a professional data-recovery specialist - read on.

First Step

Firstly, remove the hard drive from your computer and plug it into a different computer, one that you know is working properly. If you can see the drive in Windows and access the drive from the other computer, it's probable that you have a motherboard problem on the broken computer. However, take this opportunity to back up your hard drive now.

Second Step

If you hear a loud ‘wurring' sound coming from the hard drive or maybe a ‘clicking' sound it maybe that the disk itself is stuck and won't spin. This means that the data can't be read.

You may be able to temporarily get access to the data on the drive by freezing it. Freezing sometimes revives a stalling hard drive.

Take the hard drive out and put it into a freezer bag. Make sure that the bag is properly sealed otherwise condensation can get in and form ice crystals. This will further damage your hard drive. Leave the hard drive in there for 2 or 3 hours at most.

Now plug the hard drive back into the other computer. Go to Windows and check to see if the hard drive shows up. If it does, then get that data off there as quickly as possible. Once the hard drive warms up, it may stop working again.

Third step

If you still can't get this hard drive to spin, then I'm afraid you're going to have to make a decision about how valuable your data is. Because you're going to need a specialist pc repair service to recover it. They will open up the hard drive and remove the disk itself to extract the data - something not usually possible in a domestic environment. This service will probably cost around £350 or $500 as you will need a new hard drive to store any recovered data onto.

My name is Stephen Drummonsy. If you are a novice on the computer like me then the best option is to go to a computer repair expert. For me this option works best. But I have found that backing up all of my files on a regular basis can save me a lot of money if anything goes wrong with my hard drive. I learnt how to do this by taking my laptop to specialist hard drive company. And I have written this article in the hope that it may help others who are not wizzards when it comes to PC or laptop repairs.

Where Price and Quality Meet

by anderson44


When most people think of cheap ink cartridge, what comes to mind is usually basic information that's not particularly interesting or beneficial. But there's a lot more to cheap printer cartridges than just the basics.

Those of you not familiar with the latest on cheap printer cartridges now have at least a basic understanding. But there's more to come.

Money matters. Some people may hate that fact, but it's true nonetheless. Without it, no one can get by, because they won't be able to get the things they need - much less the things they only want. So, it's important to make sure that everything one does stays within affordable limits. This is every bit as true with printer cartridges as it is with anything else.
However, that doesn't mean that one has to give up the level of quality that's found in the best name brand models. There are plenty of cheap printer cartridges that do every job just as well without costing a small fortune in the process. That means that it's possible to get prints that normally cost £.10 or more for about £.5 instead. That makes a huge difference in how easy it is to get the prints one needs without breaking the budget.
The coolest thing about it is that there are plenty of good examples not only of compatible brands but also of cartridges that have been remanufactured to be used a second time. That saves a lot on the amount of plastic that winds up in landfills when it doesn't have any more ink or toner to use.
There are lots of people who try to do this themselves, but it isn't actually as easy as sticking a needle into the ink projection port and squirting a refill in. The job has to be done while ensuring that the cheap ink cartridge will still function at the level expected while remaining cheap enough to help people's budgets. That takes a measure of skill and special equipment that would cost too much for each individual to obtain.

The saying that everyone gets what they pay for has been around for a long time, and it's generally proven true every time.

What is an External Hard Drive Really?

 by TonyShepard


Every computer contains a hard drive, a way of storing applications, photos, music, movies and other files in its memory. An external hard drive is the same kind of device used to store your digital information on a unit separate from your computer. For this reason, it is often used to backup data in the event of a hard drive crash or other malfunction. Like most people, if you keep your family photos in your computer, and if you don't have an external hard drive, you run the risk of losing them forever if your computer breaks down. But if you store them on the external devise, your pictures will be preserved.

In addition to backing up your data, an external hard drive can also be used to supplement the storage space you already have on your computer. More people are keeping more information on their computers, like movies and music. Files like these can quickly fill up all the available storage space on on your computer, which can have a negative effect on your computer's speed and your hard drive's stability. An internal hard drive filled to the brim with files has a much greater probability of data corruption or system crash. An external hard drive is a cost effective way to give you extra storage for these kind of files, which frees space for your personal use, and can improve the stability and performance of your computer. You can also use an external hard drive to hold an additional account. All you have to do is select the external hard drive as the computer's start up disk, and you have all new computing environment.

External hard drives are very easy to use. Usually, all you need to do is connect it to your computer via a common USB port. Sometimes, if you have the available interface on the computer and depending on the model of your external hard drive, you may also use a Firewire cable for greater transfer speeds. It is also possible to interface with your external hard drive wirelessly for greater convenience.

The most common variety of external hard drives for computers are disk drives, which store information on a magnetic disc and is read by a small stylus. This cost effective means of storage has been the standard for years, but is prone to the occasional crash or breakdown when dropped. For only a few extra dollars, you may purchase a solid state external hard drive, which is more stable than standard disk drives, and is much less prone to damage if dropped. These devises store data electronically on chips, with no movable parts, in the same way common flash drives store information.
