Technology Changes Life

Human beings have always been significantly affected by technological developments

Human beings have always been significantly affected by technological developments, including the printing press, the telephone (cell phone), and the Internet, which have lessened physical barriers to communication and allowed humans to interact freely on a global scale.

CES, short for International Consumer Electronics Show, is just a major technology-related trade show hosting previews of technological products and announcements of new consumer electronics. The 2011 exhibition is currently scheduled for Thursday, January 6 to Sunday, January 9, in Las Vegas, Nevada, USA.

Throughout the history of this show, lots of epoch-making products and technologies have been first introduced at CES including Video Cassette Recorder (1970), Camcorder (1981), Compact Disc (CD) Player (1981), Digital Versatile Disc (DVD) (1996), HDTV (1998), Digital Video Recorder (DVR) (1999), Xbox (2001), Blu-ray Disc (2004) and etc. According to a report in the New York Times, Microsoft may reveal Windows 8 for the first time.

Apart from those blockbuster products aforementioned, we cannot ignore some inconspicuous but helpful tools. For example, we can turn to some easy-to-use program to extend the application scale of Microsoft Office PowerPoint just like adding wings to a tiger. Those tools that might redoubled the features of PowerPoint for business person, teacher, students and speechmakers including but not limited to:

  • PPT to PDF Converter: It refers to the converter which can convert PowerPoint document to protective and convenient PDF files. In addition, Moyea PPT to PDF Converter can also convert Word, Excel as well as PowerPoint files to PDF. What’s better, it is a piece of totally free software.
  • PPT to Video Converter: It refers to the converter which can convert PowerPoint to video files in common formats, such as AVI, WMV, MPEG, FLV, MP4, MOV and etc. As a result, you can transfer your converted PPT file to portable multimedia devices like iPod, iPad, iPhone, PSP, or upload them to your blog or other video-sharing websites like YouTube.
  • PPT to DVD Burner: It refers to the converter which can convert PowerPoint documents to DVD, so that you can play them on TV set with DVD player, or keep them in bland disc for storage. What’s more, Moyea PPT to DVD Burner can help you convert your PPT file into video and Blu-ray Disc besides standard DVD.
  • PPT4Web Converter: It refers to the converter which can convert PowerPoint documents to flash video (FLV, MP4, MOV, 3GP or 3G2) for web application, for example, you can embed this kind of video onto YouTube, MySpace, Facebook and your blog or the like.

Although not all technology has been used for peaceful or kind purposes, the development of ever-increasing destructive power (or weapons) has progressed throughout history, from clubs to nuclear weapons. In addition, many technological processes produce unwanted by-products, known as pollution, and deplete natural resources, to the detriment of the Earth and its environment.

What we need is just a pair of eyes to find the skillful and reliable technological gains just like the PowerPoint converter I have mentioned.

Modern software design has fundamentally changed how we manage applications, causing many to turn to containers as the new virtual machine for resource management. As container adoption grows beyond stateless applications to stateful workloads, the need for persistent storage is foundational - something customers routinely cite as a top pain point. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 21st Cloud Expo, Bill Borsari, Head of Systems Engineering at Datera, explored how organizations can reap the bene...
"NetApp's vision is how we help organizations manage data - delivering the right data in the right place, in the right time, to the people who need it, and doing it agnostic to what the platform is," explained Josh Atwell, Developer Advocate for NetApp, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at 20th Cloud Expo, held June 6-8, 2017, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY.
The Jevons Paradox suggests that when technological advances increase efficiency of a resource, it results in an overall increase in consumption. Writing on the increased use of coal as a result of technological improvements, 19th-century economist William Stanley Jevons found that these improvements led to the development of new ways to utilize coal. In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Mark Thiele, Chief Strategy Officer for Apcera, compared the Jevons Paradox to modern-day enterprise IT, examin...
In his session at 20th Cloud Expo, Mike Johnston, an infrastructure engineer at Supergiant.io, discussed how to use Kubernetes to set up a SaaS infrastructure for your business. Mike Johnston is an infrastructure engineer at Supergiant.io with over 12 years of experience designing, deploying, and maintaining server and workstation infrastructure at all scales. He has experience with brick and mortar data centers as well as cloud providers like Digital Ocean, Amazon Web Services, and Rackspace. H...
Skeuomorphism usually means retaining existing design cues in something new that doesn’t actually need them. However, the concept of skeuomorphism can be thought of as relating more broadly to applying existing patterns to new technologies that, in fact, cry out for new approaches. In his session at DevOps Summit, Gordon Haff, Senior Cloud Strategy Marketing and Evangelism Manager at Red Hat, will discuss why containers should be paired with new architectural practices such as microservices ra...
In his session at 20th Cloud Expo, Scott Davis, CTO of Embotics, discussed how automation can provide the dynamic management required to cost-effectively deliver microservices and container solutions at scale. He also discussed how flexible automation is the key to effectively bridging and seamlessly coordinating both IT and developer needs for component orchestration across disparate clouds – an increasingly important requirement at today’s multi-cloud enterprise.
The Software Defined Data Center (SDDC), which enables organizations to seamlessly run in a hybrid cloud model (public + private cloud), is here to stay. IDC estimates that the software-defined networking market will be valued at $3.7 billion by 2016. Security is a key component and benefit of the SDDC, and offers an opportunity to build security 'from the ground up' and weave it into the environment from day one. In his session at 16th Cloud Expo, Reuven Harrison, CTO and Co-Founder of Tufin, ...
DevOps is often described as a combination of technology and culture. Without both, DevOps isn't complete. However, applying the culture to outdated technology is a recipe for disaster; as response times grow and connections between teams are delayed by technology, the culture will die. A Nutanix Enterprise Cloud has many benefits that provide the needed base for a true DevOps paradigm. In their Day 3 Keynote at 20th Cloud Expo, Chris Brown, a Solutions Marketing Manager at Nutanix, and Mark Lav...
Many organizations are now looking to DevOps maturity models to gauge their DevOps adoption and compare their maturity to their peers. However, as enterprise organizations rush to adopt DevOps, moving past experimentation to embrace it at scale, they are in danger of falling into the trap that they have fallen into time and time again. Unfortunately, we've seen this movie before, and we know how it ends: badly.
TCP (Transmission Control Protocol) is a common and reliable transmission protocol on the Internet. TCP was introduced in the 70s by Stanford University for US Defense to establish connectivity between distributed systems to maintain a backup of defense information. At the time, TCP was introduced to communicate amongst a selected set of devices for a smaller dataset over shorter distances. As the Internet evolved, however, the number of applications and users, and the types of data accessed and...
