Samsung declares 2015 Year of Wireless Smartphone Charging becoming an Industry Standard

In 1882, Nikola Tesla identified the concept of the rotating Magnetic Field. He took the first bold steps in 1891 to publish his work and thus became the first person to demonstrate the idea of Wireless Charging. He would have been proud if he were alive today to see his idea being put to good use. Everything from smartphones and Tablets to even Electric Lamps can receive Power via the so-called “magnetic-inductive” method of Power Transfer which he developed. So how does Wireless Charging Work? Shine Bright like a Magnetar in the sky, Rihanna’s Diamond in the Sky Style!  Wireless Charging – Tesla’s Idea of Wireless Charging is merely rotating Magnetic Fields That method involves a rapidly rotating Magnetic Field that changes field strength and direction at a very high frequenc...

How to expand and secure your Wi-Fi Network with Power-Line Adaptors

If you’ve got Broadband Internet from FLOW of LIME, you probably may have noticed that you can’t get Wi-Fi (IEEE 802.11n) everywhere in the house. Some part of your house may have thicker walls with more metallic structures. As such, metal i.e. steel, zinc nails, iron grills attenuate radio waves and thereby shorten the 100m range of most Routers. This is both Good and Bad: makes it harder for hackers to access your Wi-Fi Network but reduces your home Wi-Fi Network to literally sitting beside the supposedly 100m range Router. So what can you do, especially a report published on Wednesday April 17th 2013 by Independent Security Evaluators states that the top Wi-Fi Routers on the market are easily hackable due to security holes in the firmware, which many don’t make easy to regularly upda...

Looks like Apple is cranking up the innovation engine again, so soon after the debut of the Apple iPhone 5 on Tuesday September 11th 2012 as covered in Kelroy’s article iPhone 5 Announced – Slimmer, Taller and Faster.

The New Wave Of Wireless Speakers

Gone are the days when your speakers had a mess of wires connecting them to a stereo system or CD/DVD player. Similarly, gone are the days when you needed to play your music directly from CDs. These days, you rarely buy CDs, because music is bought or downloaded in digital format, and stored directly on desktop computers, laptops, tablets, music players, mobile phones and other portable devices. With this technological shift has emerged a new type of speaker - wireless speakers that can use bluetooth or any wi-fi network to stream music directly from a plethora of storage devices (including the ones named above). From wireless speakers in lightbulbs, to those that pack a powerful punch but can fit in the palm of your hand (e.g. the Jawbone Jambox), to water-resistant models that you...
