personal and travels

Archive for the ‘technology’ Category


At work, majority of our hotel guests are tourists from different countries. Usually Tourists traveled miles just to make a tour to witness the beauty of the country and its people. Some of our guests were too confident making tours of their own without any tour guides. I just wondered how they made it to drive and find the place wherein they were not familiar with and were able to come back to the Hotel? I found out, they were using handheld gps. It is a satellite-based navigation system that navigates locations all around the world and provides time information in all weather. It helped them enjoy the adventure of travelling without getting lost.

Self Erasable Paper

May 5, 2008 Author: bluegreen butterfly | Filed under: education, technology

Xerox has invented a new form of Self Erasable Paper that would self erase anything printed on the surface of special type of paper within a time span of 24 hours, the paper can then be reused for upto 100 times. So you might ask what the use of this? Well it can be used in offices, instead of trashing or recycling the paper, it can be used again and again for upto 100 times. This Reusable paper is environmentally safe, reduces paper waste and could also help in lowering overall paper costs. It is amazing to know that this paper can be used up many times. I never thought of this kind of invention. This is great. How the technology works:

The paper contains specially coded molecules that create a print after being exposed to ultraviolet light emitted from a thin bar in a printer. The molecule readjusts itself within 24 hours to its original form to delete the print, or heat can readjust the molecule instantly. Xerox developed the molecule. The ultraviolet bar itself is very small, so it can also be used in mobile printers.

Six-wheeled soldier

six-wheeled soldier, MULEYou call a vehicle a “soldier”? That is how we will fight wars on the future, at least as explained in the new technology of war, answering the question with battle footages, animation, live-action weapons testing and interviews with experts to examine everything from robot warriors to unmanned aerial vehicles. That is the trend. If we can deploy robots to wash our windows, or clean the floor, why not as a soldier? In fact, it has been tried already, those electronic objects deploying or searching for bombs. Right, we are talking about robots in warfare. Did you say we are in the age of the machines? Now this 6-wheeled soldier called MULE, multifunctional utility/ logistics and equipment, is not just unmanned while remotely controlled and armed with antitank or missiles, but it actually climbs over other vehicles to attack enemies. Could be deployed by the army by 2013.

Microsoft’s warning on Vista update

Feb 23, 2008 Author: bluegreen butterfly | Filed under: arts and culture, Computers, technology

Warning?! Seems like there’s a rough road ahead for windows vista users.

windows vista updateMicrosoft needs a Vista success. As Service Packs are among the biggest updates Microsoft issues for its various operating systems, the software giant will be releasing the SP1 update for Windows Vista, for success in mid-March, although business customers are availing it in February. The software firm said SP1 makes Vista more secure and reliable and introduces some new features. But this needed success will be a concern for vista users.

Microsoft is warning Windows Vista users that a forthcoming service pack for the operating system may stop some twelve (12) third-party programs working.

And it happens that the list of programs that may be broken by the SP1 update for Vista are security programs that prevent Windows users falling prey to viruses, Trojans and booby-trapped WebPages six of which block viruses or keep an eye on the places someone visits online. PROGRAMS HIT BY SP1 which some will be blocked by the update, some will not run and others will lose some of their functions are:

  • BitDefender AV
  • Fujitsu Shock Sensor
  • Jiangmin KV Antivirus 10
  • Jiangmin KV Antivirus 2008
  • Trend Micro Internet Security
  • Zone Alarm Security Suite
  • Iron Speed Designer
  • Xheo Licensing
  • Free Allegiance
  • NYT Reader
  • Rising Personal Firewall
  • Novell ZCM Agent

Microsoft warned that its list was not “comprehensive” and asked people to get in touch with the maker of any affected software to fix problems, BBC said. So my security program is not gonna work? That’s a headache.
