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?

Fractal of the Mandelbrot set
The fractal geometry, makes reference to geometrical objects fractured, is a mathematical tool very powerful to represent in a computer and, with fidelity, structures that we can find, either in the nature or some things created by the man. Furthermore allows realize simulations more accurate of all kind of natural phenomenons. Also it's applied, in certain situations, to resolve all kind of problems. Would you like know how are made?

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.

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. Deep in "Are WiFi Networks healthy? (I)"

The voice synthesizers are those programs as Loquendo, which provide of human voice to the machine. Although the majority of them have a voice very robotic, without intonation and feelings, but we can understand it. Here you see roughly how is imitated the human voice in a computer and because is so difficult achieve a voice equal to the human one. Read more of "How works the voice synthesizers?"
