In the modern world of fast advancing technology, new ideas and concepts are coming up so fast that the technologies of today seem to get older tomorrow. These new technologies come in diverse forms like new platforms and applications and in different fields as for example the mobile applications. Even though the development of mobile technologies has become very important for numerous industries in different parts of the world most of the common masses are not really and truly aware of them.

Development of mobile applications involve creation of different software that work mainly on compact and small devices like the mobile devices. The smart phones, iPhones and digital assistants are small phones that avail nearly all the facilities available on the desktops and laptops. These devices apart from the function of calling one another also include diverse functions that at one point of time were only possible in the desktops or the laptops.

This heavy development in the rise of the mobile devices have arrived due to the demand of the people to use services and applications in portable and devices that can easily be carried along with everywhere. The dependency of the people on these applications and services has led to this momentous development in the mobile applications. These portable devices serve as the best source of key information no matter whatever topic it is related to plain entertainment or to awareness.

The market of the mobile applications development can be categorized on the basis of the platform they actually work on. The basic platform that mobile applications are mainly based on in the modern day includes iPhone, Blackberry, Windows and Android. Among them the iPhone is regarded as the most promising of them all for the simple reason that they have made a significant mark in the market all over the world and are heavily on demand. With the popularity and craze of the iPhone platform it can be easily expected that they would make further developments in their applications and services which will perhaps seal their place in the global mobile applications market.

The numerous features and services provided by these mobile applications have made them highly interesting and helpful for the common people in numerous ways. These features have revolutionized the mobile applications and made life a lot easier for one and all. Gaming, fast and secure internet browsing, video and audio players, GPS and video calling are only a little few in the long list of applications that mobile technologies provide. They have become such an integral part of our lives that we can hardly think of living a day without them.

Online Technology Offers New Online Learning Opportunities

Online technology, especially with internet enhancement, enables the world to be connected. Border and geography are no more an issue in the online world because everyone from anywhere can meet together at a place called the internet. The enhancement of online technology shortens the distance between people all around the world and at the same time it creates new form of online learning opportunities.

It does not like the old day when people only learned at physical schools that had fixed schedules. With the enhancement of online technology, education can be done online. Online education has been introduced for decades. In the earlier stage of introduction, online education has faced a lot of technology limitation that slowed its growth, but following the enhancement of online technology for broadband internet connection, it has taken a big step to grow as one of the preferred education options for students to pursue their degrees.

Online technology also makes possible for learning and working to be done simultaneous, instead of asynchronously. In the old day, working individuals who were thinking of earning a career related degree had to quit their job or taking unpaid leave if they want to study full-time. Or, they need to scarify their family time to take the evening classes on a related degree program. Both options need you to scarify either your current job or your family time. But, online education enables you to perform both work and study at the same time. With a proper time management, you can keep your current job and carrying out family obligations while getting a degree online. Online technology has created a new learning opportunity for working individuals, encouraging more and more adult learners who have entered workplaces for years to go back to school and learning at virtual world from anywhere and at any time.

In the old day, you might have to go to library or bookstores to find references for knowledge when you need it. You have to go through page by page to find the required information that might take up a lot of your time. With online technology, new learning opportunity can be reached at a finger tip. The internet is full of knowledge and information that cover almost anything on the earth and out of planet. There are zillions of pages, but you can find the required information easily with the search features available with some simple mouse clicks.

New learning opportunities brought by online technology not only benefit students and working individuals, but also stay-at-home moms. With online technology, full-time moms now can learn new knowledge and improve themselves with the necessary knowledge to stay at the edge of the modern world. They can even learn how to earn an income online with home-based businesses and generate an income stream to support their family.

New Dental Implant Technologies

Conventional dental implants involve a procedure that lasts six months or more. The implant is placed, and allowed a period of six months to integrate with the bone and heal before it is crowned. Advancements in new dental implant technology have resulted in ‘immediate loading’, making teeth implants a one-day procedure.

Recent Advancements

Modern implant technologies have revolutionised the way tooth replacement is performed. Improvements in coating technology, advances in the shape and thread designs of implants and three dimensional scanning systems are some of the radical changes that are changing the way implants are done.

Improvements in Coating Technology: New methods of coating technology have made it easier for dental implants to assimilate with the jawbone, thereby enhancing their stability and durability. One of the latest developments in the field involves the coating of dental implants with a bone material that is synthetic in nature. This helps the implant to incorporate better into the jaw bone.

Three Dimensional Scanning System: A 3D dental CT scan uses Cone Beam Volumetric Technology (CBVT). It allows the scan to be performed with the patient in a sitting position, offering a clear view of where exactly the implant should be placed. The quality of the scanned image is excellent and the extent of the patient’s exposure to radiation is reduced.

Tooth Implant Shape and Thread Designs Advancements: Implant thread design has a major impact on primary implant stability. Modern dental thread implant technology offers maximum primary contact, enhanced stability, increased surface area of the implant and easy integration with the bone without any stress. This advancement in implant technology minimises bone loss.

Screwless Dental Implants: Another recent advancement is single tooth dental implantation without the use of screws. This novel technique offers a clipping mechanism to bond the abutment and the material of the crown.

Immediate Loading or Osseointegrated Implants

Osseointegration refers to the fusing of the dental implant into the bone. The success of new implant technology depends on effective osseointegration. Modern implants are made up of two parts – the implant proper or artificial that is surgically implanted in the jaw bone and held in place with tiny titanium screws, and an abutment which connects the root to the crown.

CT Scanning Technology

The 3D dental CT scan is used to image the mouth and the implant is then positioned appropriately. CT Scans enable cosmetic dentists to fully plan a complete tooth implant procedure before the dental surgery. The cosmetic dentist is able to view a detailed three dimensional image created by the scan from any direction possible through 360 degrees. With conventional techniques there was a need for the dental surgeon to detach the gum tissue from the root and jaw bone and use probes to accurately measure the thickness and density of the jaw bone. With this new dental implant technology there is no waiting period involved, the procedure is often referred to as ‘Teeth in an Hour’.

The Future of Tooth Implants

Recent advancements in the design of Teet implants and components used have enhanced the flexibility of the procedure so that the implant specialist to can customise it to suit the patient’s bone structure. Research carried out at the Medical Centre of Columbia University resulted in developing new dental implant technology which uses stem cells to grow a dental implant in the mouth. This technology is in the very early stages and the research showed that it was possible to grow a fully formed tooth in approximately nine weeks form the implant procedure.

Technology Partnerships Boost Nascent Wind Power Industry

By working with local universities and overseas component suppliers, manufacturers aim to produce more affordable turbines that are 15 to 20 percent more efficient in generating electricity.

The wind power industry in China is blowing up a storm.

From just six wind turbine manufacturers in 2004, the China Wind Power Association estimates the country is now home to more than 70 companies. This represents at least 17 times growth in just six years.

Output is multiplying swiftly as well. Statistics from China Wind Power Material Equipment Network show 124 percent year-on-year growth in 2009 production to 10,129 wind turbines generating a total of 13,803.2MW.

This, in turn, is promoting development in the auxiliary industries such as blades, converters, pitch control systems and inverters.

To make a mark in the export sector, China’s wind turbine manufacturers are now investing in technology, certification and aftersales service upgrades. The majority of companies only started catering to overseas markets during the past two or three years. In 2009, only four suppliers shipped out wind turbines internationally. These are Sinovel, Goldwind, Shanghai Electric and Changzhou New United. Sinovel exported 10 units to India. Goldwind sent three wind turbines to the US, while Shanghai Electric shipped two to Thailand. Changzhou New United manufactured one each for Thailand and the US.

At present, most locally made wind turbines cannot handle speeds that are too slow or too fast. The Chinese Wind Energy Association said a 1.5MW generator typically requires wind speed of at least 3 meters per second to start and 12.5 meters per second to generate electricity. But at 25 meters per second, the turbines need to stop working because the electricity generated would be too much for the transformers to handle.

Because of this limitation, suppliers focusing on large-capacity wind turbines are working with local universities in developing new technologies that can help improve stability and performance. The Shandong Changxing Group is cooperating with the Shaanxi University of Science and Technology to produce high-speed synchronous generators with a brushless excitation system. Unlike the traditionally incorporated doubly-fed asynchronous generators and permanent magnet direct-drive systems, the newer technology can convert electricity even in extreme wind conditions. Shandong Changxing is said to be the first in China to use such advanced systems, which can generate 15 to 20 percent more electricity than wind turbines adopting other technologies.

New United Group Co. Ltd works not only with the Shenyang Industrial University to develop 1.5MV wind turbines, but also with Germany’s Euros, UK’s GH and France’s Alstom to produce key components such as blades, controllers and converters. Using information shared from this technology partnership, the company initiates another round of R&D to develop parts in-house.

Some component suppliers, on the other hand, were set up by technology institutes themselves. Beijing Corona Science & Technology Co. Ltd was set up by the Chinese Academy of Science’s Institute of Electrical Engineering. With the institute’s focus on high-tech R&D, Beijing Corona is able to offer converters, pitch control systems and inverters for both wind and solar-powered products.

Wind turbines made more affordable

Advancements in technology coupled with China’s relatively low labor costs are pushing down prices of wind turbines. Guangzhou Hongying Energy Co. Ltd, which exports kW-rated capacity wind turbines to North America, said small China-made units are 100 to 200 percent less expensive than overseas variants, while larger models are priced 20 percent lower.

From about 6 million yuan ($885,000) per megawatt at the start of 2009, quotes fell to below 5 million yuan ($737,000) in H1 2010. Global prices are falling, but not fast enough to meet China’s low rates. From a high of 1.22 million euros ($1.6 million) per megawatt in 2009, prices are projected to fall to about 1.04 million euros ($1.4 million) by 2011.

The swift decline in quotes for China-made wind turbines is attributed in part to the way some small manufacturers offer really low prices, often at the expense of quality.

But larger, more research-oriented companies are less inclined to reduce quotes to finalize a transaction. Among these is Shandong Changxing, which believes engaging in price competition at such an early stage is not a move in the right direction.

Other improvements

Apart from investing in technology, companies such as New United are bringing in professional testing equipment to ensure the quality of its turbines. The company now has blade, 3MW land drag and 3.8MW land grid-connection testing platforms in addition to an EMC laboratory.

Apart from these, New United carries out various tests on turbine performance under different weather conditions, including low temperatures and high air salinity. The units are subjected to a shipping simulation assessment to evaluate how well the sealed film packaging holds up against sea travel. Burn-in tests are carried out as well.

Likewise, Shandong Changxing carries out land inspection to check resistance to moisture and corrosion, and evaluate suitability for sea and land use.

By improving the technology, manufacturers also aim to speed up turnaround in acquiring export certification such as being able to carry the CE mark or be UL-listed. Since the industry is still in its nascent stage, certification is usually per component and not for the entire turbine. Depending on the part and type of turbine, the process can take three to more than five months.

The lengthy turnaround sometimes causes problems in meeting delivery schedules. Companies would often have to negotiate lead times with buyers. In fact, a few manufacturers said they are unable to ship out some of the orders placed last year because the export certification is still not ready.

Presently, China-made wind turbines are exported to the US, the EU and Southeast Asia.

Aftersales service is being enhanced as well. Apart from sending engineers to guide buyers during on-site installations, suppliers are providing bilingual technical blueprints with metric and imperial measurements, and operating and maintenance manuals.

New Technology, New Surprises

Technology in recent times has grown to such a level, that you get almost everything at your finger tips. Electronic gadgets have replaced people in many places. Earlier, we used to go to meet friends, run around in the park, share a coke. These days, all we do is ping someone in yahoo or tweet in a networking site. Gone are the days, when you could go to your friends’ place without having to inform them about your arrival.

Technology is also a nice way to connect, learn and explore. One of the recent developments of technology is e-learning. E-learning is learning by the use of digital tools and content. Simply known as learning through computers.

E-learning is such a huge jump in the world of education. There was a time when certain subjects or certain courses were not available to us, as we could not find anyone who could teach us. With technology, this gap has been bridged. E-learning helps us learn just about anything at anytime and at any place. The education system is fast changing to e-learning, wherein many schools are changing over to E-learning for certain subjects and topics. Students can learn just about anything, right from how a cell phone works to how to fly an aircraft.

Many corporate companies are using e-learning as a tool to improve their employees knowledge without having to travel far.Video conferencing is yet another tool which provides a virtual meeting place. This reduces the cost incurred by a company on travel, stay and hiring professionals to teach.

Understanding Projector Screens

If you work with a projector, you should have a projector screen. Some people argue that having the screen is equivalent to using a wall, but this isn’t the case. There are plenty of benefits that come with having the screen instead of a wall:

Advantages of the screen

Smooth image: When you use the screen you tend to have a smooth, crisp image. The reason for this is because the screens have a vinyl coating that allows the projector’s light to be reflected back to the viewers. These sheets come in handy and significantly affect the picture qualities such as contrast, brightness, and viewing angle.

You can move them around: In addition to the units giving you a better view, they are also easy to move around; therefore, you can use them even in areas without walls.

Types of screens

When you are looking for the screens, there are many of them that you can go for. Some of the best ones are:

Fixed-frame: A fixed-frame screen features a screen material that is stretched over a metal frame. Since you don’t have to roll the fixed screen up and down, you can maintain a tight, tensioned surface to provide you with a completely smooth image. The fixed units are also easy to install as you don’t have to connect power to them.

Motorized: Also, known as retractable screens, these units are ideal for the movie time. The units easily roll up into a long metal case that you mount to the ceiling or wall. The most identifying feature of the unit is the case that houses a powerful electric motor that easily raises and lowers the screen at the touch of a button.

While the units are great, their main flaw is that they are more cumbersome to install. This is because you have to supply power to the electric motor. The units also feature a trigger input so that they lower themselves automatically as soon as turn on the projector.

Factors to consider when buying the screens

When purchasing the units, you need to consider a number of factors. One of these factors is the screen gain. This is simply the amount of light that is reflected back to the viewers. When the gain is high, there is more reflected light and as a consequence a brighter picture.

You also need to consider the screen color: This is solely dependent on your preference and the industry you are in. If you are looking for high-quality images, go with a white screen.

Catering Your Business Meeting

Business meetings can be tedious affairs, often taking up a lot of the day, but they are also the place where things get decided and offer a chance for team members to input their ideas over new products or services. The business meeting may elicit groans from those who have to partake, but they are a necessary evil. Instead of brown bagging it, what about a catered meeting that will give everyone something to look forward to and bring people together again in a less formal way–as they eat?

Most catering companies will have a dedicated menu specifically for the corporate world. They include things that can be eaten on the go, or hand held and of course they will also cater to sit down lunches or dinners as well, depending on your needs. The best part about having your lunch catered is that it arrives ready to eat when you want it to, no one has to leave the meeting to make or put the food out. It also doesn’t matter where you meeting is taking place. Your boardroom, outside or at a client’s place, it doesn’t matter to the caterer as it is their job to take your order to you at the specified time and location.

Catered food is known to be of high quality, because with so many caterers around, no one would ever order from one that had a bad rating either online or by word of mouth. You can also customize your menu to suit a specific theme or to avoid certain allergens that may make some people ill and of course there will be plenty of food to go around, and beverages like coffee and tea are usually also included in the fee.

About the fee–catering your office meeting is cheaper than you may think. It is hassle free for you and your employees of course but it is also better than asking your associates to bring out their own food at the appointed time. This means they’ll sit where they are and eat, but with a catered meal they will get up, fill their plates, chat with each other and eat in groups which is more conducive to the meeting’s overall feel once you get back at it after your lunch break.

Catering is something that has been done for years and something that corporations the world over swear by. Isn’t it time you looked into catering for your next meeting?
