With electronics makers like LG and Samsung selling tens of millions of flat screen TVs a year, it would seem that the world has largely moved on from older, “traditional” televisions—those with round cathode ray tube (CRT) monitors. CRT TVs are heavier, bulkier, and don’t produce as high-quality a picture as flat screen televisions, which feature LCD, plasma, LED, or the newer OLED technology. In 2009, a study reported by the Washington Post found that over 90 percent of new TV sales were of flat screens. Is there still a place for CRT TVs in the modern world? Power Consumption As Which? points out, CRT TVs have many disadvantages beyond their size and heft. The media outlet found that CRT televisions consume much more power

It’s easy to take memory storage systems like writing for granted, but thousands of years ago, human beings had to rely on impressive feats of memorization to retain information. Back then, if you wanted to have access to a poem, for instance, you’d either need to memorize it yourself, or else find someone who had already stored it away in their heads through painstaking practice. Given how much data we all process these days, that sort of memorization is no longer an option. Nobody can remember everything, and luckily, we don’t have to! We have come such a long way when it comes to the technology of recording our thoughts that our smartphones now work as a kind of external storage for our brains. Regardless

There is often a misconception surrounding marketing as a term. Most people look at it through a very limited scope and fail to see its robust nature. Business marketing is both a science and an art. It strives to capture an experience in real time and share it with the consumer masses in a consistent manner. To be successful it must stay fresh and current. This means that as technology advances, business marketing must evolve to accommodate the new tools of the trade. Having a marketing plan with a projected growth rate is vital. It is the scientific side of the coin that says, “If you follow this marketing plan, 150 percent growth rate is guaranteed in one quarter or less”. In other words, it

On the morning of November 4th 1979, embassy workers arrived to work amidst a sea of chanting protestors who were expressing their anger at America’s support

In an age where we are working longer hours for less money, it’s no wonder the levels of stress in the workplace are so high. There are so many things that can get you down; boring colleagues, little free time, looming deadlines or even just running out of coffee at 10am on a Monday. Sometimes it’s good to get away from the stress of work-related duties and to take some time out during your day to forget about those pressing issues. Distraction If you’ve been working so hard on a project that you just can’t seem to get any further with it then perhaps you need a distraction. Just taking some time out to think about something else can get your subconscious working on those

I don’t know about you but I have always hankered after a holiday on the Moon. Either a fortnight’s self catering on the Seas of Tranquillity or an all inclusive deal on the Sea of Nectar would be perfectly fine by me. So why can’t I seem to find any offers to take me there? Apart from the fact that there are not many great hotels up there and the restaurants are fairly limited it seems that there are some other logistical problems in taking a lunar break. Yet we continue to believe that they are just around the corner. I read recently that around 5% of us think that by the year 2020 we will be able to choose from Benidorm, Cancun or the

In the midst of the Olympics, one of the major discussions going on in the gaming world is whether gamers are athletes. After all, hardcore gamers train for hours each day, compete in major international events, and even have to meet some physical requirements to maintain endurance. The way I see it, if ESPN will play poker tournaments, it isn’t much more of a stretch to have them play video game tournaments, too. And given the name of the network, that makes gaming a sport. But let’s take a step back first and see how gaming has managed to rocket itself into the spotlight. Casual Console Gaming To get a true look at the evolution of gaming, we have to go back. Yes, I’m talking about

While so much focus has bounced around recently in regards to privacy in cloud computing, the issues with social media like Facebook and big companies have taken position on the back of the stage. Privacy issues are just as much a problem with corporations and individuals who work for them and Facebook as they are in cloud computing, so how is it the issue hasn’t received more attention? Simple—companies have been using Facebook and other social media platforms for years to promote their businesses, connect with clients and recruit talent, but only recently have started to push their employees to turn over their passwords so they can monitor what their employees are saying about their work on and off company time. What makes the issue

Trucking transports over two thirds of the goods delivered in the United States to their destinations, and as an industry, the costs of running a fleet fluctuate widely based on the cost of fuel. As fuel prices remain at their high levels, companies are looking more urgently for ways to drive down trucking costs. These five strategies can all have an impact on the bottom line. 1. Fuel-Efficient Driving Trucks don’t use a fixed amount of fuel per mile, and getting gas mileage as high as possible is a great way to cut costs. Drivers can use defensive driving techniques, like hitting optimum highway speeds based on their load and avoiding accelerating or braking quickly. Keeping the truck tuned up also affects fuel efficiency, and
