Barcode Scanners

Barcode Scanner, also known as Barcode Reader, is an input device which is used to capture and retrieve information about the product which is being scanned. This helps in automation of the process thereby increasing the speed, accuracy, and efficiency of the business process.

Barcode Scanners may be hand-held, hands-free, fixed mount, or portable data terminals. Another way of categorization can be into image scanners and laser scanners. But they utilize a connection with a computer through a serial port, a keyboard port and a wedge, which is an infrared device. Some major brands in the field of POS automation are Nexa, Epson, Zebra etc.

A Barcode Scanner uses a beam of light which falls on the barcode printed on the product. When this beam of light is deflected from the product, it is measured on the basis of the fact that the dark bars on the barcode reflect less light in comparison to the light spaces between the dark bars. The scanner, then, converts the light energy into electrical energy. This is further converted by

Telerobotics Vs Telepresence

Telerobotics is often confused with the idea of Telepresence (TP). Both have a role to play in shaping the way that future security systems will act. So, what is the difference between telepresence and telerobotics?

Telepresence allows you to feel like you are in a remote location without actually being in a remote location. Currently, it’s about pumping the highest resolution video and audio to the remote viewer in order to simulate the environment in which the sensing/recording equipment have been placed. This type of solution is going to be focused on improving what the camera and microphone can detect as well as bandwidth utilization. Some common examples of consumer tools include Skype, FaceTime and Google Hangouts.

These are all essentially telepresence applications that can be used from your computer or cell phone. Other than the focus on real-time interaction, this is effectively the current state of the surveillance industry. The video and audio feeds are as real time as possible and an individual can theoretically monitor those feeds from anywhere. This likely means that

Use Google Maps Offline on Android

The process is identical on both iOS and Android. Before we dive into the process, take a moment to visit the App Store on your iOS device, or the Play store on your Android device and check for any available updates for Google Maps.

After verifying you have the latest version, launch Google Maps on your respective device and search for the area you’d like to save for offline access.

Google Maps will then show the area you find, with the name being displayed along the bottom of the screen. You will need to download the area of interest before being able to take advantage of Google Maps offline. This is what we mean when we say things must be done “proactively.” The map area must be downloaded before leaving the safety of your city’s secure connection.

You’ll then be tasked to adjust the area to be saved via panning and zooming around, making sure to pay attention to the size limit alert along the top of the screen. Of course, there is a massive amount

Chrome Keeps Crashing

Step 1 – Re-Install Google Chrome

The most common reason why Chrome crashes is because it has a series of issues with its integration with Windows.

As mentioned, it is highly extensible which means it has a large number files which all need to work correctly. If just one of these files becomes damaged, Chrome will stop working.

To resolve this, the most effective way to fix the error is to simple re-install Chrome. This not only replaces any potentially damaged files, but updates the various Windows settings that are often the silent cause of errors/crashes.

To do this, you need to follow the steps here:

  • In Windows 7, click onto “Start > Control Panel > Add/Remove Programs”
  • In Windows 10, right-click “Start” > select “Apps and Features”
  • When either application management interface appears, scroll through and locate Google Chrome
  • Right-click and select “Uninstall”
  • This will process the uninstallation, after which you should restart your PC

Upon restart, your system will not have Chrome, so you’ll need to use Internet Explorer – or Edge if you’re using W10 – to download a new copy.

To do this, you should just load up the other browser,

Privacy Is Not The Product

Your basic human right: Today, millions of people across the globe doesn’t differentiate online and offline privacy. However, you need to always keep in mind that current legal system of democratic nations like USA, India, UK, E.U countries, Japan, South Korea and many countries strongly protects person’s right to privacy.

The organization like UNHRC, ICCPR, a number of national and international treaties, and written words on the constitution of several nations, enshrine “privacy” as a fundamental basic human right.

It was the year 2015 when The United Nations Human Rights Council noticed that the enormous progress in the communication technology has made it easier for corporations & government to record daily activity of an individual and they can easily block free speech. The authoritarian government can very easily crackdown on protests and they can even limit the spread of information, while a corporation can sale the data to the malicious third-party contractor for money. In short, online privacy makes you stronger than the government itself.

The absence of online privacy makes you unsafe: Whenever you are connected with the digital world, you leave behind a traceable and permanent trail of your private data. This recognized

Data Center Consolidation

There are a number of drivers for consolidation projects. In some cases, the organization grew through mergers and acquisitions, inheriting multiple data centers that replicate services. In addition, many organizations have effectively reduced their IT footprint through virtualization and the adoption of hyper-converged infrastructure solutions. These technologies make it possible to eliminate underutilized equipment and replace what remains with smaller form factors.

The rationalization of these services can also facilitate consolidation. This has been a priority within the federal government through the Federal Data Center Consolidation Initiative. Federal agencies have been working to reduce the cost of their data operations by eliminating waste and implementing a shared services model.

Similar efforts are underway at the state level. According to the National Association of State Chief Information Officers (NASCIO), 42 percent of states had completed data consolidation projects in 2016, up from just 14 percent in 2007. In addition, 47 percent of states are currently working on consolidation projects, and 11 percent are in the planning stages.

That data comes from a newly released report, “Shrinking State Data Centers: A Playbook for Enterprise Data Center Consolidation.” The report notes that consolidation enables centralization of data infrastructure,

Trouble With Sophia

No doubt I am the only one concerned about hackers. I just happen to remember what hackers did to our so-called, self-cleaning, intelligent public toilets. I mean, if people can spy on me though my TV eye, my webcam, and my smart fridge, imagine what mischief they could wrought if they gained access to my bed. This could certainly put a new twist on our political elections, but actually I was thinking more in terms of being able to hack someone’s bed in the middle of the night and trigger that eject button.

I mean seriously, if you’re going to have a smart bed, let’s do it up properly and consider all of the ramifications and potential issues and take the idea fully to its logical conclusion.

As if smartbeds were not already a potential disaster, we also now have the lady robots. As usual, people are always trying to create a new and improved woman, especially one that can do customer service for free. It is a great tragedy, a huge offense, that we live in a culture that genuinely does not seem to understand the human element, the significance of women, the importance of

Technological Impact

What is a card issued by UIDAI? One such card is a card holding a number assigned to every citizen of India by the UIDAI or THE UNIQUE IDENTIFICATION AUTHORITY OF INDIA and the card commonly named as the AADHAR CARD.

Technology behind it: The technology is foolproof. The Iris and Fingerprints of a person are captured, scanned and held into a card. The entire process is done by very sophisticated devices and elite technology was used. This process is called the process of capturing the Biometric Identity of an individual. The Iris and the fingerprint of one individual will never match with the details of another individual in this world. That is why such a system was used. This card is commonly named as the AADHAR CARD..

How secure is it? According to experts the UIDAI details are kept in a highly secured server and it cannot be leaked. But it is only a matter of time to get its efficacy tested.

Demonetization: This is the art of moving currency away from the system and to provide detectable electronic modes of financial transaction. This also involves making the currency notes in circulation as invalid

CD Printing

• Lithographic offset print

The industry standard for labelling and printing on high volumes of discs, lithographic printing is an innovative printing method involving the creation of what is known as printing plates. These plates can be made from photographic negatives, which are processed using a traditional photo production method where the negatives are bathed in chemicals. Images can likewise be processed directly from a computer to a plating machine in a procedure known as the CTP or computer to plate process. The plates are imposed onto rubber blanket cylinders within a specialised printing machine (thus the term offsetting, as plate imagery are offset onto the cylinders). The cylinders then apply the appropriate colours onto the disc’s printing side.

• Silk screen print

Silk screen printing uses the basic principle of traditional screen printing where ink is passed through a mesh or screen. The mesh is stretched on a frame together with an outline or stencil of the image to be printed. The open areas of the stencil allow the ink to flow through, leaving a nice, clean print on the disc. A four-color process, screen printing on CDs, much like screen printing on garments

Wire Harness

Remember back to children’s programming of the 1970s and 1980s? There’d be moments when the fourth wall would be broken by the actor on camera acknowledging the voice over, and it usually involved the actor being completely clueless about something. The idea of a wire harness and how it helps up in our everyday lives is probably giving most folks the same befuddled feeling.

So, what it is a wire harness? In truth, it’s nothing more than just a collection of wires into one unit that helps to keep electrical systems organized. If you’ve ever opened your desktop computer’s tower or looked inside of a printer, you’ve probably noticed how clean everything looked. Clean, of course, refers to the uncluttered look of the internal pieces. This is how wire harnesses really earn their keep. What’s more, they can also vary in size depending on the application.

First things first, though, we need to ask ourselves – what does a wire harness do? Well, it allows data and electrical power to be conveyed efficiently throughout a structure. Considering how many things we’re surrounded by that start their functioning by being plugged in, it’s safe to say that

Biometric Hardware

This type of biometric authentication employs the exceptional facial qualities of someone. When it has to do with biometric authentication, the fingerprint sensor is the most trustworthy and convenient. For starters, biometric authentication is considered among the best kinds of authentication currently offered. The worldwide biometric authentication and identification market is predicted to undergo substantial growth over the following five years.

Biometrics provides convenience, simplicity of use, simple scalability and increased cyber security. In addition, they are increasingly sophisticated and proven, including facial recognition as a means of authentication. Biometrics needs to be secure. however, it can’t interrupt somebody’s day-to-day pursuits. For smaller companies, in addition, it supplies a cloud-based solution which delivers fingerprint biometrics and smart cards.

There are a few specific forms of biometrics utilized for some particular purposes. They will also have some impact on the workplace with regards to the need for additional hardware costs such as scanners. Behavioral biometrics is a new type of biometric that gives you the ability to confirm your identity with how you behave, instead of some facet of your physical body.

Biometrics allows an employee to use their fingerprint as identification at any location in

Internet As a Reference Tool

First, using the Internet as a reference tool.

While the ease of use, scope of resources, and up-to-date nature of the information available online are collectively invaluable, there are also some downsides to using the web for research. The biggest thing to be careful about is low quality, unsubstantiated material that hasn’t been reviewed for accuracy. Since anyone can post on the Internet, it’s up to you to make sure the resources you’re using are reliable.

How do you deal with that problem? You need to use good, reliable search tools; use good searching techniques (see a recently published article on Boolean Phrase Searching right here on EzineArticles for more on that); and take responsibility for thoroughly vetting any material you use. It can be tempting to trust resources that support your hypotheses, but they need to be checked just as thoroughly as anything else you hope to cite, or more so.

Good, reliable search tools mean, when possible, focusing on information available in libraries, government databases, and similarly vetted information repositories, as well as using the appropriate internal search tools. That doesn’t mean you can’t use Google or Wikipedia, but if you do, check

About Facial Recognition

The said technology consists of four different stages as explained below.

1. The Capturing stage involves the collection of a sample using the video equipment. This sample could be an image/footage from a busy metro station or of the audience at a baseball match.

2. The Extraction is more unique and focuses on individuals instead of the whole crowd. A template is created with the unique data.

3. The Comparison stage weighs up the earlier mentioned template with a precompiled database.

4. The Match/ Non-Match stage implicates making a final decision that whether or not the template matches with any entry in the already existing database. This is achieved with the use of various complex algorithms.

Facial biometrics can be consolidated at any place, where you can find modern-day HD security cameras. The Police and other law enforcement agencies use these systems to locate people of interest by scanning video footage captured at different places. Other deployments of this incredible technology include border control applications and consumer applications like banking and payment gateways.

Thus, wherever there is a need to track an individual or a group of individuals on the basis of

Music Can Heal Your Mind and Soul

Music promotes cognition.

Music is not just a powerful abstract. It has the ability to enhance specific brain functions and amazingly can make someone smarter. Wow! Science has revealed that listening to music can enhance reasoning prowess, improve literacy and reading skills, and mathematical skills.

What if you’re not a musician? That question might come to your mind, right? Well, even if you’re not a musician, you can still get the perks or positive effects of music. As a matter of fact, senior citizens enjoy listening to music and have dramatically showed augmented processing speed and enhanced episodic memory. There are also studies that proved that listening to a background music helps increase the cognitive and productivity performance of individuals doing tasks.

Music astonishingly helps improve memory.

Our brain is a made up of interconnected nerves which can be activated to link up with long-term memory. There are also specific points in the brain that are connected to episodic or autobiographical memories and emotions – all can be activated when familiar music melodies are heard. That’s why music is incredibly helpful to adults.

Listening to music can dramatically improve motor and reasoning skills.

We Fear Personal Robots

The conversation comes up over and over again – regardless of venue. Many people have a very real sense of dread and fear related to robots invading their lives. Similar to popular Star Wars movies, imaginations are going to the outer limits where no man has dared to venture. Perhaps the time has come to remind everyone to simply relax, as robots are not going to take over the world or displace millions of workers. The technology really is in its infancy stages, with limited capabilities at this point. However, advancement is a linear process where simple robotic assignments are mastered initially before moving forward to more complex duties. From a development standpoint, we are still a long distance from having technology that simulates human executive functioning and socialization. We are, however, closer to having robotic assistants capable of performing a number of tasks once considered impossible.

In order to gain some perspective on the anxiety related to robots in our daily lives, it would be prudent to look back at history. During the early years of the 20TH century, Henry Ford invented the Model T automobile. Mr. Ford’s goal was to build an affordable dependable vehicle

Audio PED

Now most Bluetooth headsets equipped with the camera available on Amazon are dubbed “spy headsets” and there is a whole variety of them available with price ranging from $30-90. But, AudioPED is a lot more than just a Spy cam or even a Bluetooth headset as it has basic health monitoring sensors as well. I managed to find one headset that came close to it; The Ctronics Hidden Wearable Spy Camera HD that costs $90. As you can easily predict, the price increases with an increase in memory size, functionality and the camera quality. Now there is no concrete price tag from the team right now, but it is widely reported to be around $109 which is a lot more than the other Bluetooth devices but let’s look at the specs of the new Bluetooth handset and see if it’s really worth the hefty number of dollars!

Sound

Since these are basically Bluetooth headsets, it is important to start off with the primary function: sound. The Audio PED offers a top-of-the-line quality sound to its users, and it can be streamed directly via the internet instead of storing it on the device itself. This feature is

PC Running Perfectly

Get Rid of Malware

Malware is similar to a virus, but it can cause an increase of damage to computers. For example, malware can infect a computer and then cause the cooling system to stop working, resulting in a computer that is overheated. After this, the computer’s hard drive will no longer work. The only solution is usually to buy a new computer.

Instead of dealing with this hassle, download a free program that is designed to specifically get rid of malware. Once the malware on a computer has been eliminated, many users notice an increase in speed and a brighter picture.

Keep it Clean

Cleaning a PC should be a part of every people weekly dusting routine. Computers can accumulate a bit of dust on the screen, keyboards and, for desk top computers, on the hard drive. Once this dust makes its way inside of a computer, it can have a disastrous impact. Dust is also one of the most common causes of computers overheating.

Fan Filters

Specialized products can help cut dust that has the potential to make it into the inner parts of a computer’s hardware. A variety of

Types Of Connectors

VGA Connector

It’s common in many computers. It’s also used in many videos. For ideal results you should use a 15-pin connector on a device that you are sure of the type of video that it can put in and out. The connector is mostly used in projectors.

Speakon Connector

This is the latest connector used in audio connections. The unit is available in 2, 4 and 8 pole iterations. For audio applications, you should use 2 and 4 pole. The good side with this unit is that it takes in high current signals. When connecting it you should connect the female plugs to the male panel socket. Due to this connection, you should use the connectors in live sound applications where you should use them in connecting power amplifiers to loudspeakers.

XLR Connector

This is another balanced connection that is used in many pro audio applications. The unit has a barrel design that is approximately 2cm in diameter, with about 3-7 pins or holes. You can effectively use it in audio applications where you use the 3 pin XLR.

Balance Jack Connector

It aids in carrying two channels of audio

Cloud Computing

Security Exposure

Security is cited as the number one objection to Cloud for 49% of organizations (IDC 2017). Should you be concerned? The security investments made by the major Cloud providers is significant and has created cloud platforms in which security breaches, due to vendor error are rare. In fact, the Cloud has proven to be more secure than most non-cloud environments.

Network Response

A key detractor to cloud for customers in Western Canada is the worry that network connectivity will be insufficient to provide the type of response time and security that end users are accustomed to. With the major public Cloud providers located in Eastern Canada, it is understandable that network connectivity options should be well understood before proceeding. Several networking options exist to address the need for high bandwidth, security and connectivity to Cloud, including solutions based in Saskatchewan.

Service Availability

Service availability, including response time and user downtime, is a concern due to the perceived loss of control over the computing environment. To mitigate this concern, public Cloud vendors provide service levels for all their products with financial credits provided if they are not achieved. The robust engineering of

Getting PC to Speed Up

• Detecting a virus-when downloading things from the internet you need to check on spyware and malware because when you download files from the internet you can also accidentally download a virus. If you have a lot of viruses in your computer’s brain it could cause you to have slow computer problems. The solution is to install good antivirus software and run it to get all of the malware out of your computer. You should also only download from reputable websites if possible and keep your virus software up to date. Have it run every day at a time you will not be using the computer to check for malware and any other viruses.

• Limited space-when downloading things from the internet most people will store it on the hard drive. If there is too much stuff on the hard drive it will slow your computer down. Delete any software programs, entertainment media files, and games that you no longer use and are just taking space on your hard drive. Once this is done your computer will be faster.

• Get rid of temporary files-there is generally a lot of unwanted stuff that is stored in
