Features of 3D Pens

1. Compatible surfaces

The functionality of these pens is simple. Instead of ink, they use plastic in order to “write”. Moreover, a good pen can be used on almost all types of surfaces. So, make sure you don’t buy one that works on a certain surface.

What sets a good pen apart from others is how it responses and how convenient it is to use.

2. Required temperatures

The performance of the pen will change based on the temperature of the environment where you are in. So, it’s a good idea to read the description and reviews of the performance of the pen in different temperatures. Understanding your work environment is also an important thing to do. In a hot environment, the pen won’t be able to give its best.

3. Timing of the plastic

Since these pens use the heat technology to work, make sure the substance inside the pen comes out without any interruption. Actually, the plastic can become sticky in immense heat and some colors may look slightly different. Also, it’s a good idea to read reviews on the pens on different websites prior to buying it.

4. Cooling Time

This technology makes use of the heat and the pen works only when heat is applied. Once the plastic inside the pen heats up, you can use the pen to draw or doodle. The pen should also cool down once the plastic in the shell heats up. The pen won’t be useable if the cooling time is too high. There should be enough gap between the heating up and cooling down of the 3D pen.

All about Computer Sixth Generation

In the automobile industry, robots are used in manufacturing, but AI has crept into the vehicles themselves. From global positioning systems to warning a driver of a potential hazard in front of them, artificial intelligence is present. Some cars can even apply the break or swerve the vehicle out of harm’s way if necessary. Artificial intelligence has also assisted in the development of voice recognition software (VAR). While unable to understand the words, VAR has allowed people who have disabilities to speak into a microphone and see the words appear on the screen. Although people need to speak slowly and clearly in order to work properly, and it is not 100% accurate, VAR is also now on many hand held devices. Being able to surf the web or send a text has become easier than ever, and more advancements are on the way.

AI includes −
• Robotics
• Neural Networks
• Game Playing
• Development of expert systems to make decisions in real-life situations
• Natural language understanding and generation

The main features of sixth generation are −
• UULSI technology
• Development of true artificial intelligence
• Development of Natural language processing
• Advancement in Parallel Processing
• Advancement in Nano technology
• More user-friendly interfaces with multimedia features
• Availability of very powerful and compact computers at cheaper rates.

Some computer types of this generation are −
• Desktop
• Laptop
• NoteBook
• Mobile Phones
• Palm Top

IPAQ to Linux

Palm pilots and pdas are constantly growing in the ways that people use them in their everyday lives. Having a pocket pc is becoming the standard rather than the exception. However, many people have a desire to connect their ipaq with Linux, because it is free, and because they have an objection to paying for expensive, proprietary software. As an alternative to Microsoft and Mac, Linux is a great option.

Some pocket pcs come with the Linux software already embedded. For instance, HP and Compaq palm pilots are two that usually come with Linux software already as part of the standard package. Dealers of pocket pcs are anxious to offer plenty of choices that will personalize their pda to the average consumer.

One of the best things about Linux is that it is considered very safe and extremely stable. A Linux connection can be found online very easily. Many reputable sites offer Linux connections for your handheld that can be quickly downloaded. Linux is also simple to learn, so people who are worried about being able to use it should be able to master it in no time at all.

If you connect ipaq Linux, you can assert your individuality and choose not to conform to the normal, expensive software options that others go with. Using Linux is just one way to assert your personality, and to let the expensive software market know that you are not one to go along with the crowd and others are joining with you every day.

Time To Warm Up PC

Common causes of freezing:

  • Low memory
  • Low disk space
  • Fragmented disk
  • Too many programs open simultaneously
  • Low CPU speed
  • Corrupt files
  • Software bugs
  • Overheating – random lockups that start several minutes after you start up the PC are often the result of the processor cooling fan not working properly
  • Some non-standard applications are suspect with freezing problems
  • Memory chip problems
  • Virus infection

Steps you can take to minimize freezing:

There are many things that you can do to help your computer do what you want without testing your patience…

  • Do a disk cleanup (cache, temp files, old or unused files, recycle bin) .. click here for instructions.
  • Do not run any more applications at one time than you need to.
  • If the freezing happens consistently with one application, uninstall and reinstall it – files associated with the application may have become corrupted. Always use Control Panel/ Add Remove programs, or the uninstall program belonging to the program to uninstall a program.
  • If the freezing has been occurring since you installed a new program, uninstall it.
  • Uninstall any programs that you may have downloaded and installed in the past, but no longer use.
  • Get the latest Windows update at http://windowsupdate.microsoft.com
  • Get any available patches for your software – go to the manufacturer’s websites to check for patches or updates to your programs.
  • Free up resources – click on Run and type “msconfig” in the dialog box. Next, click on the “Startup” tab. All the programs listed here with check marks are running in the system memory. To free resources Windows 98 users may uncheck everything except “System Tray” . Windows ME users can uncheck everything except ScanRegistry, PCHealth, *StateMgr and System Tray. Leave your anti-virus software in the startup as well. You must restart the computer for these changes to take effect.
  • Run ScanDisk (or Check Disk in Windows XP)
  • Defragment your disk. Click here for instructions.
  • If you have an older computer and are trying to run multiple applications, you may need to upgrade your computer… check the system specifications recommended for the applications you are running to see if your system is capable of doing what you are asking.
  • Obtain the latest drivers for your hardware – go to the web sites of the hardware manufacturers and get the latest drivers for your video card, sound card etc
  • Redetect your devices – remove the components from the Control Panel, System, Device Management screen. Reboot the system and let Windows redetect and add only those devices which are actually on your system.
  • Make sure that you have anti-virus software installed. Set it to automatically update virus definitions, to scan all incoming files, and to do a full system check at regular intervals.

Disk Cleanup :

For Windows 98 & 2000

You have probably been downloading programs, creating and deleting files, and installing new software without thinking about the effect this has on your disk space. It’s probably time to have a clean-up. Windows 98 and 2000 have a feature that cleans up your disks for you. It removes temporary files, the recycle bin and other files – giving you the option to delete or not to delete. It is simple to run.

Do this clean-up as follows:

Start: Programs: Accessories: System Tools: Disk Clean Up

When it opens up, select the C: Drive and start it. It will pop up and show you about four types of files, each with a check box. Check the boxes for files you would like deleted and proceed. It should run through pretty quickly and then you will have more space on your computer.

For Win 95

Windows Temporary Files

Firstly, get rid of your Windows Temporary files.

Go to Start> Find> Files & Folders. Then search for “*.tmp” (minus the quotes). The * allows you to look for any file that has a temporary file type. If you have done it right, only files that have a .tmp after them should appear in the search results. Now just click on the first one, hold shift, use the scroll bar to go all the way to the bottom, then click on the last one, and press delete.

Secondly, get rid of your Temporary Internet files

Go to the Temporary Internet Files folder in the Windows directory. It should be next to the Temp folder. There shouldn’t be anything in here that can’t be deleted, so you can go ahead and delete the files in this folder.

Thirdly, empty your recycle bin. Right click on the Recycle Bin icon, select Empty Recycle Bin. Many people have hundreds of files they “deleted” but they are still taking up space in the Recycle Bin.

Run the Disk Defragmenter

Editing and deleting files as you work leaves gaps on data storage media. Instead of each file being stored in one continuous block, it ends up in several locations, resulting in inefficient retrieval of your data. As you add more data to your hard drive, the gaps left by previous deletions are filled. Your file becomes split, or fragmented. This will slow down your system – when you try to retrieve a file, the process is slower than if it was stored in one block. To make your disk storage more efficient, a process called “defragmenting” is used.

Windows has a built in defragmenter, which is located at:

Start > Programs > Accessories > System Tools > Disk Defragmenter

It is a good idea to run this program once a month. When you run the defragmenter, close all programs including your screensaver. If programs are running it can cause data on your hard drive to be changed which makes the defragmenter start from the beginning… and never finish!

The more frequently you use defrag, the faster it will become.
