The Smart Phone Surge

Over the last few years there has been a technological surge in the application of Smart Phones and Touchscreens. You probably already have one and if you do you’ll know about the constant updates, interface reworks and new models on the market.

It’s all a sure sign that this area of technology is booming. Facebook gets around 100 million unique visitors every month via mobile technology. Everyone uses Smart Phones and Touchscreens in some way and for good reason.

Smart Phones are great, the ability to manage finances, do your food shopping, check the weather,buy Christmas presents, anywhere at any time, on a piece of plastic that you can put in your pocket. You have to have some kind of grudge against technology to not make use of it.

But by the same token, you have to make use of it to stay in the loop. Most marketing is carried out with Smart Phone and Touchscreen technology in mind. To be up to date with the latest in modern society, you kind of need a Smart Phone.

 

 

Scientists Achieve a 5G Record Connection Speed

Researchers at the University of Surrey’s 5G Innovation Centre (5GIC) achieved a speed of one terabit per second, which is significantly faster than current data connections. It was announced earlier this year by Ofcom that they would expect 5G to be available in Britain by 2020.

The 1Tbps speed could potentially see an individual download a file 100 times the size of a feature film in about three seconds, but obviously it remains to be seen whether the speed can be replicated in real world conditions. As yet, there is no accurate timescale of when 5G will be rolled out, and many people are still not satisfied with 4G coverage so there is a long way to go. This does show, however, that 5G can be extremely fast, and we’re sure the record will be broken numerous times before it’s available throughout the whole of the UK.

Sony To Provide Refunds Following ‘Misleading’ Ads

Electronics giant Sony has been told that it will need to provide consumer refunds thanks to ‘misleading’ advertisements for its PlayStation Vita in the US.

FTC targeted a particular advert which claimed that PS Vita users could PS3 games at any time and then continue where they left off on the PS Vita. FTC said;

“This feature, however, was only available for a few PS3 games, and the pause-and-save capability described in the ads varied significantly from game to game. As we enter the year’s biggest shopping period, companies need to be reminded that if they make product promises to consumers – as Sony did with the ‘game changing’ features of its PS Vita – they must deliver on those pledges. The FTC will not hesitate to act on behalf of consumers when companies or advertisers make false product claims.”

Sony will now have to provide consumers who purchase the PS Vita before June 1st 2012, a $25 cash/credit refund or a $50 merchandise voucher.

 

All you need to know about compressor repair

A Compressor is a mechanical device which is used to increase the pressure of the air with the reduction in its volume. Generally, Compressors work like pumps which pressurize and transport liquids through pipes. Compressor repair Has been a major problem to many people from time immemorial due to its high cost. It is therefore important to understand all aspects regarding this type of repair.

Appropriate Air compressor maintenance is required to improve the efficiency and functionality.  Mostly, Basic maintenance is ignored due to which the equipment lags and eventually results in a breakdown. It is recommended to have a complete check of all the parts used in an Air compressor to avoid higher cost at later stages. The most common occurring problem is the presence of leakages which is never easy to locate, often resulting in a breakage. It is difficult to see air leakages with bare eyes, which is the reason why smaller leakages may simply go without noticing.

There are different methods used to identify the basic problems. Out of which the most common method involves applying soapy water on the outer surface of your air conditioner. Any such presence of leakage will be seen through bubbles coming out of the affected area. If it is a bigger leakage then you need to contact the Air compressor repair experts to avoid further breakage.

There are also some cases of simple leakages in which compressor repair can be done just by tightening the loose connections. Sometimes, the leakage may only be due to the dirt on the threads which can be repaired by just cleaning the dirt from the threads. The most common way to correct the leakage problem is to reduce the pressure in the system. However, this will provide you the temporary solution for your problem. There are some other ways to make your compressor work efficient listed below:

Proper lubrication: The Air compressor should be properly lubricated to avoid wear and tear and further breakage of parts as these repairs are costly. Make sure to always use the proper weight and grade of oil specified by the manufacture.

Worn parts: Proper replacement of worn parts should be done in order to avoid unnecessary noises and vibrations which can cause imbalance in the system. Often friction and loose components may be inaudible, so it is important to do periodic checks. These checks can help prolong the life of the machine.

Safety: Always remember the safety as working with large machinery  electricity and compressed air could be dangerous. So, while performing maintenance duties make sure that the electrical supply should be completely disconnected. Also, the air compressor should be completely relieved from all the pressures.

The best solution which has been adapted by most of the people is the regular maintenance and the timely servicing of their compressor to avoid frequent compressor repair for their Air conditioners. If the problem still persists then you need to contact the Air compressor repair expert to look into the problem.
