30 Incredible Pieces Of Wisdom From Nikola Tesla

on this day quotes from one of the greatest inventors on earth

http://higherperspectives.com/nikola-tesla-wisdom/

higherperspectives.com Nikola Tesla is often called the man who invented the 20th century, and there are lots of good reasons for that.

[09/21/15]   we just received a message from a member Joseph Collin Muendo

"hello my laptop overheats how can i keep it cool"

When your computer starts over heating then there is a number of reasons that could be causing it to do so, we would first like to address the problems before giving you the solutions the solutions so as you can prevent this from happening

Air Flow and Heat Transfer
Computers have vents, heatsinks and fans to help get heat out of the computer to keep it cool, the most common problem is when these components are not working efficiently causing the heat not to be dissipated from the computer properly due to clogged vents or faulty fans. Perform maintenance on your computer to remove Dust and vent clogs

Dying Batteries
There are plenty of different types of batteries, and many different schools of thought on battery maintenance and life span, but one thing that seems pretty unanimous is that batteries aren’t meant to be stored at 100% or 0% capacity. I know plenty of people who buy laptops and always keep the charger in, never actually using the battery. You can definitely expect to kill your battery’s health this way, since you’re essentially storing the battery when it’s full. Bad batteries don’t just give out really quickly, they can generate heat.

Persistent Overheating
If you’ve taken the air vents and battery out of the picture and you’re still having problems, then you might have a more persistent heat issue. Sometimes a dusty hard drive can cause heat problems and data loss. Some laptops just “run hot,” even without a major load on the CPU. Try cleaning out these areas as best you can before you move on to another solution.

We at TwiDan (U) Ltd offer maintenance services for your computers to help you avoid such problems and also cooling products like external fan cooling pads

TIPS
-always keep your computer elevated
-avoid putting your computer on soft surfaces like blankets this blocks vents

Consumers have been promised futuristic, fast-charging batteries for a long, long time now, but if Qualcomm is to be believed, we won't have to wait too much longer.

The company announced on Tuesday that its new Quick Charge 3.0 technology is capable of reviving the average smartphone battery and bringing it to 80 percent of a full charge in just over 30 minutes. Many smartphones today take roughly three times as long to do that.

Qualcomm's Quick Charge 3.0 is approximately 38 percent more efficient than the second version, which is found in several flagship Android phones like the Samsung Galaxy S6 and Xperia Z4. The new version will launch with select Snapdragon processors, including the 820, which Qualcomm revealed will support a blindingly fast 600 Mbps LTE-Advanced connection.

Still, as impressive as a 300-percent increase in charging speed is, waiting 35 minutes for an 80-percent charge is still small potatoes compared to the battery-charging advances we've been promised in the past. Given that researchers already built a battery that fully recharges in just 10 seconds, 35 minutes will feel like a lifetime.

LG's 1mm OLED Wallpaper TV

LG Display continues to be the leading pioneer in flexible technology - debuting its new flexible TV panel at an event in Korea this week.

18 inches wide, the screen offers high definition viewing – but can be rolled up into a 3 cm radius without damage to the screen or technology.

The screen was made possible by its OLED, or organic light emitting diode, technology, which allows it to be lighter, thinner and more flexible than standard LCD screens.

At an event in Korea earlier this week, LG demonstrated its newest flexible display screens, which are 55 inches wide and paper-thin at 0.97 mm thick, and weigh just 1.9 kg – all the while still offering high definition. Attachable to surfaces via magnets, the new screen can be fitted to curved walls.

LG exhibits its 0.97 millimeter (0.04 inches) thin OLED-TV prototype. It sticks to the wall by using magnets. More info at http://www.flatpanelshd.com

This Animation Shows You Exactly How Many Internet Cables Are Under The Ocean

Ever wondered how the internet is received all around the world? While few of us still connect directly via an ethernet cable thanks to the invention of Wi-Fi, the internet is still delivered around the world through cables, most of which are deep below the sea, as this video by the Business Insider shows.

This undersea cable network stretches 885,000 kilometers (550,000 miles) – enough to circle the globe an astonishing 22 times. It weaves all over the Earth transmitting 99% of international data, sharing everything from the best pie recipe to the latest trades on the world's stock exchanges.

Shortcuts in windows

As you use your computer there are a number of shortcuts u can use to replace the clicking process hence somewhat increasing your productivity.
today i will walk you through some of the basic shortcuts u can use on your PC

have fun trying them and c if the work for you

Copy a selected item: Ctrl+C
Cut a selected item: Ctrl+X
Paste a selected item: Ctrl+V
Undo an action: Ctrl+Z
Redo that thing I just undid: Ctrl+Y
Select everything: Ctrl+A
Print: Ctrl+P

also

Switch between open windows; Alt+Tab
If you have lots of open windows and you’re not sure exactly which one you need, press Alt+Tab, and get a quick thumbnail view of all open windows.

Minimize the window; Windows logo key +Down Arrow
Minimizing a window is a sure-fire way to see what’s underneath it. And it’s fast to use the shortcut. If the window is maximized already (covering the entire screen) it’ll go to “normal” size. And if it’s normal size, it’ll minimize entirely.

Maximize the window; Windows logo key +Up Arrow
Maximizing windows works the same way.

Clear away everything and show the desktop; Windows logo key +D
Use this shortcut when you want to minimize a lot of open windows at once to check something on your desktop.

Compare and contrast in a snap; Windows logo key +Left Arrow or Right Arrow
Snap is the easiest way I know to compare two documents—or to write up something while also looking at a web browser.

Open Task Manager; Ctrl+Shift+Esc
This simple shortcut whisks you straight to Task Manager—without any intermediary steps.

Lock your PC or switch users; Windows logo key +L
This shortcut locks your PC and instantly displays the login screen.

Choose a presentation display mode; Windows logo key +P
whether you’re giving a presentation or are using multiple monitors, it’s simple to switch settings.

Zoom in, zoom out; Windows logo key +Plus Sign or Minus Sign
The Plus Sign key (+) zooms you in, the Minus Sign key (-) zooms you out. This lets you see small text on a webpage or to check out the pixels in a photo.

Search for files and folders; Windows logo key +F
In the past, finding a file could be like an archaeology expedition. But nowadays, search is really fast and thorough. Use this shortcut to get a search window, type in a few keywords, and presto, you’ll get your file.

Open a new instance of a program; Windows logo key +Shift+Click a taskbar icon
I like Internet Explorer tabs—but sometimes I want a whole new browser window. To get one, I click the Internet Explorer icon while holding down Shift.

And when you need it …get help; Windows logo key +F1
It’s the simplest shortcut out there. When all else fails, and you’re just not sure what to do, press F1.

The Difference Between Antivirus and Anti-Malware (and Which to Use)

Antivirus is a confusing matter: it's called antivirus, but there are tons of other types of malware out there. So...do those programs also scan for spyware, adware, and other threats? Here's how to make heads or tails of it all, and which tools you can trust to keep your PC clean.

We may be beyond the days where viruses made the evening news, but that doesn't mean that viruses and other malware are gone forever. They're there, more than happy to infect your computer and add it to a botnet or spam everyone in your contact list. On the bright side though, with some common sense, a good understanding of what you’re up against, and the right tools, you can keep your PC safe pretty easily.
