Chinese Crisis in Rare Earth Metals – Afghanistan is Silicon Valley’s Savior

The new All-Electric Vehicle, the Japanese 2011 Nissan Leaf is a beauty to behold and an even more amazing experience to drive, if you take no offence to its exterior looking a lot like a 2010 Honda Fit. Yes Car Enthusiasts, finally something for you! The vehicles is set to be a sure fire hit with Japanese car owners, what with reports of Nissan Leaf seeing black on their balance sheets and  - finally – the golf cart quiet Nissan Leaf getting a noise make that you can customize. Thus, one can imagine, if you are creatively inclined, pre-loading a sound file into your ultra modern, ultra quiet 2011 Nissan Leaf to make it have the throaty roar of a Ford Mustang Shelby GT 500 or even a 2010 Dodge Challenger SRT8. What’s not to love about this car, reminiscent of the Volkswagen VW Beetle and i...

Digital Video and Music Piracy – A Land grab for Taxes on the Internet

A buzz of excitement is in the air as everyone is making a push for 4G. Or at least what they suppose is 4G. Before I begin, it is good to note at this point, lest we forget, that these competing technologies are not yet 4G, as that seal of approval can only be bestowed by the ITU (International Telecommunications Union), the Telecommunications arm of the UN (United Nations) which has indicated that WiMax and LTE, more specifically WiMax 2 (IEEE 802.16m), are indeed 4G, albeit not officially, according to the ITU. The ITU’s conditionality is simple: Orthogonal Frequency-Division Multiplexing (OFDM), effectively the same signal multiplexing inherent in WCDMA (Wideband Code Division Multiple Access), a descendant of CDMA Networks and speed capability demonstrable in achieving 100MBps and hig...

MacBook Air and FLASH-based Hard Drives: The Quest for Instant On

History is always a good thing to sequester when dealing with electronic gadgets, and Apple Inc. is no exception. They always deliver the goods, be it a new device, the Apple iPad, the Apple iPhone 4, refreshed Apple iPod Nano, Apple iPod Touch, Apple iPod Shuffle, and the Apple iTV all deserving of their own special blog articles - as soon as they become newsworthy, as all the Tech News uproar is STILL Tablet- centric, Silicon Valley still smarting from its sudden appearance out of nowhere, tackled, like American football, to the ground straight out of left field. But the spotlight is still on the recent “one more thing” event hosted by Apple CEO Steve Jobs, in which invitations were sent out, shaped like an Apple Logo being cut out of paper, turnstile 3D oriented and an image of a L...

Samsung Galaxy – Apple iPad’s Contender for Christmas

{35:22} And they came, both men and women, as many as were willing hearted, [and] brought bracelets, and earrings, and rings, and tablets, all jewels of gold: and every man that offered [offered] an offering of gold unto the LORD. Exodus 35 vs 22, King James Version Just goes to show you that contrary to what Apple CEO Steve Jobs may say about the origins of the Apple iPad, his was not the first, as, amusingly, the Biblical reference suggests otherwise. Throw in the fact that Microsoft originally suggested the tablet form factor along with the idea of the Home Entertainment system back in the 90’s, and you get a picture of a Silicon Valley that is a poster boy for Copyright Infringing and all its ills. Microsoft came out with the much anticipated Courier Tablet aroun...

Dekal Wireless: Broadband for the Masses

When Dekal Wireless quietly launched on the scene in July 2010 with advertisements in Jamaica's Sunday Newspaper and very little fanfare, but offering so much more than what was on the table at the time. Digicel 4G Broadband, based on the WiMax 4G Fixed (IEEE 802.16a) and WiMax 4G Mobile (IEEE 802.16d,e) Protocols, stole all the show with their brash advertising, store retrofitting and pre- announcement hype, only to be swamped with traffic and thus complaints from customers, who discovered that their service, initially getting speeds of up to 10MBps best effort, is now cruising at speeds far below that of even CLARO 3G. Dekal Wireless, who Municipal Wi-Fi (IEEE 802.11n) Network is powered by Internet connectivity provided by Fiber Optic T1 wholesaler FLOW, is quietly adding on casual brow...
