Now it’s hard for us to believe that recently parents let their children go out all day without a mobile phone, and tourists fearlessly went on a wild trip without a GPS receiver. Over the past decade, a real revolution has taken place in the world: telecommunications from an emergency tool have actually become part of our lifestyle. apichart boonsin Shutterstock.com In 2011, the UN included free Internet access in its list of basic human needs. What a seemingly unnecessary luxury! In a world where tens of millions of people die of hunger every year, they dare to declare the urgent need of some kind of Internet! Alas, not so simple. Man does not live by bread alone – communications alone can change our lives. Continue reading
What is a tablet for? In order to “move away” from real life further and further. If earlier we were lost in the wilds of the Internet only in the office or at home, now we do it anywhere and in any free minute. And it is likely that soon these free moments in modern man will not remain at all. Yuri Arcurs, Shutterstock.com But this is only one side, the negative, so to speak … Why do I need a tablet if my husband swears because of it that there is little time left for household chores and children run around the house idle and the mother-in-law constantly growling that I’m a bad mistress? But I do everything precisely thanks to the tablet. Because he is always there. I need to find some recipe for a new dish, open the tablet, and voila! What is there, on the great expanses of the Internet. Continue reading
The market for navigation software is full of programs for various operating systems. It is believed that the versions of one program for different platforms are absolutely identical. But it is not so. We will talk about the little things and technical nuances of implementing popular navigation programs in this article.
Developers strive to make navigation programs, focusing simultaneously on several different platforms. For example, almost all navigation programs are available for Windows Mobile / CE. Versions of many programs are also available for iPhone and iPad, and more recently, Progorod has also been included in this list. At the same time, some operating systems (Bada and Symbian) are deprived of attention: only Continue reading
DropBox is one of the most famous and popular services for creating your own data warehouse in the Internet space. It is very convenient to have such an “online flash drive” that will not be lost or broken, unlike the real one. VR Photos, Shutterstock.com And this is not the only advantage. Once you set up synchronization of your data with an Internet flash drive, you can no longer worry about it – everything will happen automatically. Compare this with a physical flash drive, on which you need to copy your documents, then remove, carry somewhere, paste … It is not surprising that DropBox became megapopular and spawned a lot of clone services. To attract users, they offer better conditions and new opportunities. And this is all at hand for us! Competition is good. It forces firms to give consumers more Continue reading
Will the Internet retain its position in 15 years? What will be its functions? How will sites change? To answer this question, let us first look at the very recent past – 12 years ago, the World Wide Web audience was about 250 million people. Sites were not very colorful collections of texts. The number of illustrations was limited by the bandwidth of the channel and the amount of traffic. Information processing was carried out on sufficiently low-power systems by today’s standards, with a small amount of operational and permanent memory. Servers also left much to be desired … Technical limitations, of course, prevented the full disclosure of the creative potential of web developers. Sometimes they so wanted to screw the chip in a bit more fun and more fun, in order to fully realize their Napoleonic plans to realize their own vision of site development … Continue reading
