Today's Tech Funding News, In One Place
The rate at which new computer hardware products are arriving in the market is simply mind-boggling. As the technology advances, the size and the price of the devices come down, while the efficiency and capacity increase. The scenario is same in all cases, whether it is about internal components like processor, motherboard, RAM, graphics card, and hard disk or for peripheral accessories like mouse, keyboard, and monitors. Personal computers became popular only before about three decades back. But already there are huge piles of outdated and antique hardware components and devices. This is a tribute to the tremendous rate of development of latest technologies in computer hardware field. Perhaps, the newest entrant into the archeological catalogue of computer peripherals is CRT monitors. The sleek looking LCD monitors are spreading like computer virus.
The judge refused to grant Morel's motion for summary judgment on whether AFP, Getty and ThePost acted willfully, as well as whether the media companies violated Morel's rights under the Digital Millennium Copyright Act. The act prohibits providing or distributing false copyright information in order to conceal copyright infringement. There were a lot of things that weren't going as fast as Moore's Law, and I started trying to get measures of them,” Magee recalls.
WARNING: If you use Registry Editor incorrectly, you may cause serious problems that may require you to reinstall your operating system. Microsoft cannot guarantee thatcan solve problems that result from using Registry Editor incorrectly. Use Registry Editor at your own risk. We thought, ‘Maybe there's enough information there that we can do something about linking it to the dynamism of technical change,'” Magee says.
Benson and Chris Magee, a professor of the practice of engineering systems at MIT, have published their results this week in the journal PLoS ONE. The paper contains the fundamental findings and equations relating technological improvement to a variety of patent characteristics. In 2003, Magee began determining the improvement rates of various technologies. At the time, he was curious how technologies were developing relative to Moore's Law — an observation pertaining originally to computers, in which transistors on a computer chip double every two years.
For several years, he and his group identified the most relevant patents in a technological domain, by literally reading through thousands of patents — an incredibly time-intensive process. The approach was not very reliable, as two people may choose entirely different sets of patents to represent the same technology. In 2012, Magee and Benson came up with a more efficient, repeatable method for identifying relevant patent sets, by looking at the overlap between the U.S. and international patent-classification systems.
Computer technology, just like any other material on earth has been created with a common good in mind. Just like a knife, it has been made to cut and slice food to speed up cooking time for people but it can also be used to kill people, and you cannot ban the use of knives in order to stop killing. And so you can't blame computers for the problems it may have caused for it is the people who use them who caused the problem. It has disadvantages and advantages that must be taken into consideration.
Of course, in order for the advances in technology to be effectively used, people will need to equip themselves with the right tools and accessories. There are different product parts which are released and designed to improve the efficiency in service of a product. For instance, the introduction of blue tooth and wireless technology allows most people to abandon the use of wires. Headsets as well as other accessories can now be linked with real hardware with connections such as these. The provision of wireless keyboards and headphones do not only improve human efficiency, they also reduce many of the clutter that existed prior to their introduction.
