Photo of a sign on the beach
At present, we find a lot of beachs that has Wifi. Go to the beach to surf by Internet can make us seem a bit geek, although this is not the motive to quit. However, there are others that produces more serious problems. In this post I'm going to deepen in these. Don't stop reading the rest of "Problems of Internet on the beach"

We can classify the ways that hard disk can breakdown in two: software and hardware. With the first I'm talking about the lost of data due to virus or accidental erasure. In these cases, if it's possible retrieve the information, it is often so cheap because only we have to use the appropriate software. Instead, the errors of hardware or physics are very expensive of repair, because are needed tools and specialized installations and only if the information that contains is enough valuable, can worth pay for it.

Signal warning of radiactivity
The processors aren't inmune to the radiactivity. This it produces soft errors, that are errors in the signals of its circuits, produced by the noise that generates the radiation on it. The consequences of the radiation over the machines aren't so devastating as over the human, because in the worst case we can reboot the machine, but the things that could do the machines affected by radiation to the humans, it could be dangerous. Learn more about "The machines neither are inmune to the radiactivity"

embedded cpu
Although your car doesn't have onboard computer, probably it has more than 40 embedded processors. These are less powerful than the PC processors, but enough to perform the work that must accomplish to safeguard our security, improve the efficiency of the vehicle and reduce the pollution that generates.

Inside of a hard disk
Often the people lost the data of their hard disk due to don't know some of the more common things that they mustn't do with them. Do you want to know how much lifetime has a hard disk?, How enlarge its life? or how you can break it accidentally? Don't stop reading the rest of "Prolongs the lifetime of your hard disk drive"

Map of Internet
Internet is formed by a tangle of cables and routers. These routers, have the mission of route the information through that spider web in order to arrive to its destiny, although really Internet is organized in a hierarchy of routers that goes from the router of our house to the router that send the data of a entire country.

A Bigfoot Hard Disk below a hard disk of standard size
Did you question some time what is faster, a big hard disk or one little?. Normally, the hard disk to desktop computers have 3'5 inches and the laptops have 2'5. This suppose any advantage? Don't stop reading the rest of "Hard Disk: the size is important"

WiFi logo inside of a heart
We absorb massive doses of WiFi radiation all the days, is important that we ask us if the WiFi signals are or are not harmful to the health. In this post I'm going to explain some known facts and in the next one I will deepen about the scientific studies that talk about this topic. Finish reading "Are WiFi Networks healthy? (I)"

Gordon Moore’s photo
Gordon Moore, one of the Intel founders, published in a magazine of 1965 a "law" known as Moore's Law, that tells: "the number of transistor of a processor doubles every 24 month". Can be interpreted as: "every two years the processors are twice fast at the same price". That "law" it's satisfied every year, but, Will stop at sometime?
