    Worry or not these are the latest robot trends

    Robots are here to stay. Technology has advanced to such a degree that those who remain resolutely anti-robot can be forgiven for feeling a little overwhelmed by it all. Most media and business focus is on how robots can improve the overall quality of life for human beings on planet earth. Because time and space does not allow an extensive analysis of all the latest developments and trends in the world of robots only a few themes can be mentioned here. In the weeks and months to come there will be more breaking news stories. Media focuses on the attention,…

New Horizons and beyond

New Horizons and beyond

Sep 5, 2015

The journey to the infinite reaches of deep space could very well begin with NASA’s New Horizons. After passing the dwarf planet (which took nine years to reach), New Horizon’s journey has just begun. It has a new destination in mind. It is one billion miles beyond Pluto, which lies in the Kuiper Belt, an area beyond the small planet’s own orbit of the Sun, the largest sphere in the planetary system. Over one hundred thousand mini-worlds could be discovered through New Horizon’s journey into deep space. But the journey must still be approved by powers beyond its control. Even…

This robot book may scare some people

This robot book may scare some people

Sep 5, 2015

It’s not an original story. Many similar accounts have been recorded over the years. Most readers never took these stories seriously or to heart. It was only fans of the science fiction genre that warmed up to the idea. Long before science fiction writers were furiously scribbling their take on a world aided and abetted by robots, the great Isaac Asimov had done it all before. Since Asimov’s first story, the ‘idea’ was still ludicrous and fiction. It was never taken seriously, but such stories enjoyed the status of good entertainment value for money. TV shows and films brought visual…

Improving the quality of life for wheelchair folks

Improving the quality of life for wheelchair folks

Sep 5, 2015

The Gilbert Lake State Park falls under the jurisdiction of the American New York State, not to be confused with New York City, one of the world’s largest cities and purportedly a city that never sleeps. Green Lakes and Delta Lake State Parks are also within this important state’s domain. Recently the state’s New York State Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation initiated a grant called Quality of Life. It may not seem much at this stage, but this state department has made available just over ten thousand dollars to purchase just three wheelchairs. Wheelchair users already know that…

Hurricane tracking

Hurricane tracking

Sep 3, 2015

Soon it will be possible to accurately forecast the arrival of hurricanes and cyclones and prepare for them long before they happen. Preventing these natural events that are occurring on a more regular basis due to global warming and climate change triggered by mankind’s extreme behaviour is not possible. However, at least man’s ingenuity allows him to protect himself from these unavoidable disasters. Engineers at NASA have begun working on the first of eight mini-satellites which forms part of their world-wide weather tracking initiatives and research projects. The NASA engineers are being guided by researchers at the University of Michigan….

Chrysler’s big fine

Chrysler’s big fine

America’s largest auto manufacturer can afford it. Fiat Chrysler has been slapped with a huge 105 million dollar fine. It is, to date, the largest known fine handed out by the NHTSA. While the fine is justified, it also beggars belief. It has to be remembered that America’s traffic safety authority is punishing the manufacturing giant for the bungling of millions of product recalls of their vehicles mainly for safety reasons. Chrysler’s punishment includes the repurchase of over five hundred thousand pickup trucks manufactured over a number of years towards the end of the last decade. The steering mechanisms of…

How one billionaire puts his money where his mouth is

How one billionaire puts his money where his mouth is

Tesla Motors’ founding CEO Elon Musk has acquired over eighty thousand shares in the company. At this stage it may be small change for Musk, but for the ordinary investor it is a fortune. Musk grabbed the shares while they were trading at an average of $242.00 and worth $20,000,000.00 overall. Musk’s move is noteworthy and indicative of the faith he places in his own company. Deutsche Bank and Credit Suisse have both rated the Tesla stock as a ‘buy’. They also have a target objective in mind, setting the share price near $300 in the short term. Something is…

Counter-blocking ad blockers

Counter-blocking ad blockers

There is a concern that free internet use will be adversely affected by the increased use of ad blocking software. Unless users are sitting in a public library, municipal offices or utilizing the mall’s free Wi-Fi service, the internet is not and never will be free. Somewhere some body or another is paying for the service to be used by millions around the world. One of the users’ benefactors is the advertising industry, particularly the advertisers who aggressively pepper the web pages with ads that users continue to bypass in order to view their chosen material. The popular software being…

Windows 10 upgrade will not affect Microsoft financially

Windows 10 upgrade will not affect Microsoft financially

Microsoft is not having sleepless nights about their free Windows 10 upgrades, which are being rolled out across the world. The company is saying that this roll-out will have no financial impact on their bottom line. By reporting massive losses, the tech giant has forced tech and financial analysts around the globe scratch their heads; according to those experts, either this ‘free’ upgrade is not free or someone else is paying for this. Ultimately the Windows 10 upgrade is not free. It is free in the usual marketing sense when a salesman tells his unwitting customer, after barging his toe in the front…
