Monitor with giant cactus
Formerly, when still the CRT (Cathodic Ray Tube) monitors were in use, emerge the myth of cactus that absorb the monitor radiations. This swindle probably was thought by some illuminated herbalist that saw the bulky filters antiradiaton that was putting in front of the screen. Surely though that he can win a lot of money selling cactus as substitute of this filters, because a cactus is a lot of more nice and friendly than an authentic filter antiradiation. Follow reading if you want to know why this belief is absurd. Read the rest of "The myth of the antiradiation cactus"

Microsoft vs WebGL
Internet Explorer, that sadly is the most popular web browser is also the worst in the fulfilment of standards and the one that delay more in implementing them. Taking advantage of their dominant situation Microsoft, decided that the new versions will not going to be compatible with the new open standard for the 3D Web (WebGL) to try favour the implantation of their proprietary technology (Silverlight), but that decision could be a bad idea.

inkjet cartridge refill

Due to the expensive that are the ink cartridges of the inkjet printers, surely a lot of you would think that the composition of the ink must be something as human blood, alcohol and petroleum.

Phosphorus of a CRT screen
The screensavers, theoretically, serve to protect the monitors from the deterioration of the quality of the screen produced when you leave an image fixed during a lot of time. With the abandon of the CRT monitors in favor of the TFT-LCD, the screensavers leave of be useful, but a lot of people follow believing that still serve to save the screen.

linked data - semantic web
Tim Berners Lee, inventor of the Web, from the beginning wanted that his invention was semantic forming a global data base of the human knowledge, in which the information could be consulted by all the world and understood by the machines, to generate new knowledge, answer questions and create artificial intelligences that could surpass the Turing Test. This idea begins to become true, but first have to overcome several difficulties that I'm going to expose next. Follow discovering "The problems of the semantic Web"

de-fragmentation
In the computer science, sometimes, appears false beliefs due to the ignorance of that really occurs in the machine. This time I'm going to demystify some of this old beliefs, which say that the hard disk can't be fragmented when we run a Linux based operating system.
