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.

Most DevOps journeys involve several phases of maturity. Research shows that the inflection point where organizations begin to see maximum value is when they implement tight integration deploying their code to their infrastructure. Success at this level is the last barrier to at-will deployment. Storage, for instance, is more capable than where we read and write data. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 20th Cloud Expo, Josh Atwell, a Developer Advocate for NetApp, will discuss the role and value...
