A fisher of wheelchair men and women

A fisher of wheelchair men and women

Sometimes it might be appropriate to quote religious texts or inspirational spiritual verses because the news story is so joyful that it reminds both reader and writer of an epic event or good deed.  The New Testament story from the Christian Bible goes something like this; Jesus, a savior of men and women, once upon a time called a group of fishermen to become fishers of men and not just fish. Over two thousand years later, one fisherman from Whidbey Island, Washington, USA, seems to have taken these words literally and to heart. He also has fond memories of his…

Tech wheelchairs are cheaper

Tech wheelchairs are cheaper

For those that did not know, particularly those who need to get around in wheelchairs, there is a new product on the market which will save the disabled money in the long run. The 3D printed wheelchair Hand Drive, as it is known, is believed to be both more affordable and technologically-advanced than the traditional lever-powered versions. This is indicative of the trend in advancing 3D printing as a better option than traditionally-manufactured goods. Invariably, because the expense in the design and development processes of three-dimensional printing is much less than conventional methods, the finished products are also much cheaper….

Tech help for bees

Tech help for bees

Many folks have a phobia of bees; insects smaller than the size of their thumbs. The fear lays in the accidental encounter with a bee which in order to protect itself, gives off a nasty sting. Tragically, the sting kills the little soldier which is better off travelling in large swarms. But more folks love bees for the sweet honey they produce. Across all species, including humans, bees are an important part of the food chain. World-wide, the existence of bees is threatened, mainly by the rapid urbanisation of previously natural habitats. It could be said that bees are being…

Wait for the Apple Car gets longer

Wait for the Apple Car gets longer

Fans, pundits, writers and auto retailers and experts all want to know one thing. When is the much-hyped Apple Car going to hit the road? For now, there are only rumours. A leading British publication snapped up a tip from California that trials for the Apple Car would begin at a neglected Navy base in Concord. But a rival US online publication squashed the rumour and told readers that Apple is still a long way off testing a prototype. Like rivals Google, Apple still needs to market themselves as a viable car manufacturer and retailer. Then they need to reach…

Regulations hold back Apple

Regulations hold back Apple

The USA’s most valuable company is delaying its television streaming service due to issues with licensing. Their current projection is that they will now go live next year. This means that Apple’s plans of launching its new service this fall have been scuppered. It could, however, turn out to be a blessing in disguise because it simply means that the tech giant now has more time to prepare. For ordinary folks, a year could be a long time to wait, but time does not stand still for Apple. The tech giant may now delay the release of their exclusive iPhone 6s, which was originally…

Guess who’s recalling their cars this time?

Guess who’s recalling their cars this time?

Another question; when will the world’s leading automobile manufacturers, with loads of capital resources and technology at their disposal, ever do the job right first time and be done with it? Let’s also not forget that most of these cars are being built, wait for it, by robots. So much for efficiency. Correctly argued, technical excellence remains the domain of those who built their factories up in the first place. This latest saga of motor car recalls sees over six hundred thousand vehicles being summoned back to the workshops. This is the fault of two large car manufacturers. One company…

But the manufacturers are gearing themselves for larger upgrades with a more lucrative target market in their rear view mirror. This current model is also the product of a global…

BMW joins the Paralympic race

BMW joins the Paralympic race

In a year’s time, the 2016 Paralympics will be declared open by troubled Brazilian President, Dilma Rousseff. The next installment of this rendition of humankind’s spiritedness and pursuit of excellence will see Paralympic athletes, many on foot, many on prosthetic legs, and many in wheelchairs, cavorting through the festive carnal streets of Rio de Janeiro while Cristo Redentor benignly looks over them, unable to move a muscle. South African Paralympic wunderkind, Oscar Pistorius, won’t be there to collect a few more gold or silver medals. He’s serving a short-stinted term in jail for accidentally killing his model girlfriend, Reeva. Cristiano…

Samsung Galaxy S7 to feature Snapdragon 820

Samsung Galaxy S7 to feature Snapdragon 820

Looks like Samsung’s upcoming flagship smartphone after Galaxy Note 5 is not going to be sporting its own ‘system on a chip’. Instead, the South Korean tech company is looking to make amends concerning the business relationship between Qualcomm and itself by choosing to incorporate the latter’s Snapdragon 820 inside its Galaxy S7 handset. According to a source, Samsung is strongly considering Qualcomm’s upcoming flagship chipset because according to leaked images, Galaxy S7, which has also been codenamed Jungfrau, had been given support for Snapdragon 820, which possesses the model number MSM8996. It could very well be that Samsung is…
