After the Apple Iphone 6 #bendgate controversy comes the latest scandal that the Tech giants is facing today—the #hairgate. Some complains started to mushroom in September but it was not later than the first week of October that the controversy made it to the social media limelight. Dubbed as #hairgate, this latest complaint from Iphone 6 users said that strands of hair and beard get caught between the metal case and the glass straps. The controversy started gaining attention when one community member at the 9 to 5 Mac posted a complaint in the website saying that “…my iPhone 6 Plus, keeps yanking out my hair when I’m making call. Initially I thought it was the hair sticking to the screen protector. But upon closer inspection, it was the seam between the glass and aluminum– hair gets stuck and when you try to free it out, it hurts. I believe it’s not only me.” It is difficult to determine whether the issue is true or not, but Twitter netizens were very quick to make #hairgate a rising social media trend, so...

The BatteryBox – New Solution To Old Lithium Ion Battery Problems

Apr 11, 2014

BatteryBox is one of the wonders of modern battery technology and this article is going to reveal it. It is a portable battery, but what makes this nifty gadget different is it is guaranteed to perform like new and able to store 98% of its original capacity for up to five years. Furthermore, this powerful portable battery is small enough to fit in the hand of an average person and has enough juice to fully re-charge eight iPhones and one MacBook Air. Lithium Battery Problems Most of today’s batteries for mobile devices get their power from lithium batteries. The problem with a lithium battery is, the more you charge them, run flat and re-charges them again; the more they lose their power storage capacity. After enough cycles of discharging and re-charging, it will eventually unable to hold juice to power your mobile device. Inconvenient Solution For consumers who are constantly using their mobile device, one solution is to bring a re-charging cable all the time and charge their device whenever they get a chance. For notebook users, constantly plugging the device to a power outlet is the popular method of solving battery problems. However, some consumers make use of an external battery pack to tackle the same problem, and these portable gadgets will be able to fully charge a mobile device on the go via USB. External Battery Packs Problems However, the main problem with external portable battery packs is they are still made-up of lithium ion also. This means they suffer the same problems with other lithium batteries. This eventuality problem is one of the main reasons why some segments of consumers tend to get angry when new notebooks or Smartphones with built-in and un-removable batteries are launched. This is perfectly comprehensible since it would be pointless to discard a mobile device simply because the built-in battery’s storage capacity faded and died. BatteryBox: The New Solution Introducing BatteryBox, and it may be the wave of the future when it comes to solving the problems that come with lithium ion batteries. What makes this battery different is it is a battery with a brain. This portable battery comes with a BatteryOS and its main purpose...

With NVLink, you can be rest assured that your data are on the right track, quite literally. Size The speed, power and efficiency of the GPU come at a cost of a big chip. NVIDIA says it’s working on that. Actually, the GPU is already the biggest chip in the world. Its interface is already extremely wide. The solution here is to build chips on top of other chips. And NVIDIA will build smaller GPUs that are four times as energy efficient as today’s chips. Being small in size and efficiency is very important when it comes data transfer chips. Many people need chips to fit into very small devices. Further Improvements The NVIDIA Company is not satisfied with the achievements it has already made. It is working on other technologies to improve its other forthcoming GPU. This includes working on a unified memory system that will eliminate the need for developers to split resources between CPU and GPU memory. Thus, a Pascal-powered laptop is a dream that will soon come true, thanks to NVIDIA. This next-generation GPU, code-named Pascal, features stacked 3D DRAM, unified memory, and a technology called NVLink to bring more power to today’s small and thin devices.

SEO For Ecommerce Sites By Google’s Matt Cutts

SEO For Ecommerce Sites By Google’s Matt Cutts

Mar 27, 2014

A lot of customers use search engines to look for products online. When a customer visits a site and finds a product, they expect that the product is in stock and they can get it. Sometimes, however, products run out of stock. This poses a problem as they can still be found on the site. If a customer visits a site two or three times and finds products that are out of stock, the business risks losing the customer because of disappointment. This is also a waste of the customer’s valuable time. Many site owners do not know what course of action they should take when products on their site are out of stock. This is the issue Matt Cutts addressed when he talked about search engine optimization for eCommerce sites. According to him, the steps taken depend on the size of the eCommerce site. There are three sizes: small sites, average sites and massive sites. Small sites These are sites with less than 100 pages. He advised these sites to link unavailable products to those that are similar but available. This serves to advertise the other products that can be obtained immediately in case the client decides to settle for the alternative. The site owner can also use this opportunity to make the customer aware of new designs. It is a good method of putting new products out there because they sell much faster. He added that the out of stock products should have a manufacture date, which is a date that they are expected to be available. The customer can then choose to wait for the product to be available or pick a similar one from the options available. REF Medium sites These are sites with hundreds of pages. For these, he suggested that the site owners should 404 the pages with products that are out of stock. This means that when a customer searches for the product, they will be told that the product cannot be found: the famous error 404 that sometimes comes up on screens. If the date that the product will be available is known, this should be put up on the page instead of having to 404...

Dec 6, 2013

Countless people in this world search lots of information through internet by searching through the search engines like Google using long tail keywords. But the Google Update released recently had made radical changes in the process of searching new things. Changes Done By Google The introduction of Google New Hummingbird Algorithm, a new search technology, had made drastic changes in this field within a decade. SEOs were using Google’s updated algorithms popularly known as Panda and Penguin for many years which allowed them to use the prevailing algorithm of Google with a slight difference. But you can not consider Hummingbird as an update to the algorithm as it is an entirely new concept in this regard has over 200 new and old factors to use it in searching information. New Concept In SEO Google was occasionally updating algorithms to make the search effective and quick for the developers. The introduction of the new algorithm is based mainly on two points: Google had introduced Natural Language Processing (NLP) to let the searchers understand their searches in a better way. Introduction of knowledge graph of Google had enabled the searchers to get relevant information about the method of mapping the semantic web by the company. The system of matching keyword used by Google for searching information has been changed by the introduction of these new factors to the system where search engine tries to search and deliver the information delivered by the searchers. In this way almost 90% search results have been changed on Google with the introduction of this new algorithm. Reasons To Change The Google Algorithm The main reason behind the core change in the algorithm was to organize the information of the whole world to help the searchers in finding the information easily.
