New All-in-One Medical Computer from Cybernet

Cybernet’s New All-in-One Medical Computer a Big Hit at Trade Show - Cybernet’s new all-in-one medical computer, the CyberMed, generated a lot of buzz at the HIMSS show in February.

Disable iPhone Location Tracking with iPhone 4 Jailbreak Software

iPhone Unlocking Solutions Announces iPhone 3G, 3GS, and 4 Jailbreak Software To Disable iPhone Location Tracking, and Protect User Privacy - Since announcing the privacy app iPhone Unlocking Solutions has seen their sales quadruple in the last few weeks.

The ability of an iPhone user’s whereabouts to be viewed by a third-party has surprised many iPhone users, with no real solution – until now. iPhone Unlocking Solutions has come up with a downloadable software that encrypts this file, while still allowing Geo-Location services to work.

iPhone Unlocking Solutions

The Apple iPhone’s recent location based applications have opened eyes to the benefits of Geographical Location Data (GLD). This new technology can deliver information and content based on the location of of the user. This is obviously a great and innovative step, but when an iPhone user’s location information is available to prying eyes, the excitement of the technology becomes mute. The Location based information that the iPhone heavily relies upon has been a hot topic lately after the discovery of a loophole by two British men.

Ever since the introduction of iPhone iOS 4, Apple has been collecting location specific information including latitude, longitude, and timestamp information. In order to use geo location based apps, an iPhone user would need the Location Services enbabled. All the location information is then stored in a standard SQL database format in a file called as “consolidated.db” in the User Data Partition area. This file is unencrypted and anyone who accesses this file can see the same information that any geographically based iPhone app uses.

New Coloring Book App Color Mix for iPad

Kids Mix Their Own Colors in a New Coloring Book App for iPad - Color Mix for Kids adds an educational twist to a child’s coloring experience. It allows children to mix primary colors on a palette and use those mixed colors to draw.

Children’s creativity has always been limited by a box of colors chosen for them. If their school funds art studies, they may have some opportunity to mix paints and learn the color wheel. However, their exploration via creative play is always restricted by limitations in art supplies, and frankly, the mess that it makes. By using virtual paint, Color Mix for Kids allows for unlimited play and unlimited color selection.

New Coloring Book App Color Mix for iPad

In addition, Color Mix for Kids’ incremental approach to color mixing provides children a more concrete learning experience than traditional finger painting. They can see that equal portions of blue and yellow do not make the same shade of green as two portions of blue and one portion of yellow. This valuable lesson in color theory comes easily through creative play. According to Eightfold Education founder, Justin Lewis, “Color theory is an important educational foundation in order for any early elementary student to develop a talent for art.”

Color Mix for Kids provides a multi-touch enabled canvas to allow siblings or classmates to share and create together. This feature prevents the inevitable arguments that will arise when one child overrides another child’s control of the app.

Data center managers have been challenged to maintain or increase IT availability, server utilization and efficiency in the face of rising costs and demands. One strategy to help address these challenges is virtualization, which increases server utilization and enables greater energy efficiency. But virtualization also makes it more difficult to predict the demand on physical systems at any given time. As a result of the uncertainty in physical system demand, the data center manager is compelled to reserve a resource buffer against overload at peak capacity. A holistic DCIM approach provides new insights into the relationships between facilities and IT infrastructure components, enabling data center managers to better optimize their data center resource consumption.

These are the questions Emerson Network Power recommends data center managers ask before deploying a DCIM solution:

1. What are the critical infrastructure assets in my data center and what are their respective mission interdependencies? An inventory repository can provide the data center manager with a “reality check” of today’s high-value assets, as well as context in the data center plan for tomorrow. This forward-looking insight gives a continual business-oriented view into these critical assets allowing better return-on-investment (ROI) on assets as well as freeing up data center budget for other compelling priorities—a top of mind concern for data center managers.

Doomsday Predictions and Disaster Shelters are in High Demand

State-of-the-Art Disaster Shelters in High Demand as Doomsday Predictions are Heightened - Recent catastrophic disasters and chaos in the Middle East have sparked fear around the world creating a renewed interest in modern shelters. Green Eye Technology provides luxury military-grade structures which can withstand the strongest storms as well as nuclear, biological or chemical disaster.

The world is abuzz with fear that the end may be close. If recent headlines are any indication of what’s to come, those fears might be valid. With catastrophic events such as massive earthquakes, tsunamis and nuclear disasters in Japan and wars blanketing the Middle East, is a recent cover of Newsweek, “Apocalypse Now”, prophesying the truth?

Dome Disaster shelter by Green Eye Technology

A 2010 government study led by President Obama’s National Security Staff, outlines new recommendations for the best way to survive a cataclysmic event, especially a nuclear disaster. Their advice… resist the urge to flee and seek an indoor or underground shelter. The last thing people should do, the report says, is try to evacuate. For this reason, Green Eye Technology, the largest provider of state-of-the-art underground shelters, has been busier than ever. “We are getting more calls every day from people who are terrified the end of the world is upon us and want to know if there’s something they can do to survive,” says Green Eye owner George Welhaf. “While we can’t predict the future,” Welhaf concedes, “we can protect people so they feel more in control of their future.”

In the wake of recent disasters, Green Eye has seen a rise in sales of their luxury shelters which can accommodate small families or groups as large as 2,500. The military-grade structures are made of impenetrable fiberglass, and are made to feel much more like a nice home than the fallout shelters from the 1950’s and 60’s. More importantly, they can withstand the strongest storms, nuclear disasters, and radiation as well as chemical and biological warfare. Large amounts of space for food and water, and an advanced air filtration system, allow people to live comfortably “off the grid” for five years or more.

New Asetek Pumps Enhance CPU and GPU Performance - Liquid Temperature Fan Control Delivers Optimum Cooling and Quiet Computing

Asetek Inc., the world’s leading supplier of liquid cooling technology for computers, today announced two new pump technologies that deliver optimized cooling and quieter computing. The new pumps use Liquid Temperature Fan Control technology to automatically adjust fan speeds at the radiator. This technology boosts cooling for significant CPU and GPU overclocking and keeps the computer quiet during less demanding tasks. The Antec KÜHLER H2O 620 liquid CPU cooler is the first product to feature Liquid Temperature Fan Control technology.

Asetek’s ChillControl™ monitoring and control app.

Asetek’s new pump technologies give Do-It-Yourself PC hardware and gaming enthusiasts a choice between two liquid temperature fan control strategies:

* Automatic liquid temperature fan control provides a “Plug and Play” user experience.
* Interactive liquid temperature fan control for those who like to tweak and monitor their hardware.

Both pump technologies use integrated temperature sensors to monitor liquid temperatures and adjust fan speeds. Preset speed control curves are built into pumps with automatic fan control. Pumps with interactive fan control include a USB interface to Asetek’s ChillControl™ monitoring and control app.

ChillControl gives enthusiasts the ability to define their own speed curves or select between preset curves. It also provides monitoring of liquid temperatures, fan speed, pump speed, and sound level. A purely fun feature of ChillControl is the ability to change the color of the lighting in the pump cap to match your machine color or mood.
