Drones could be the answer for Medical Supplies in remote rural villages.
Although Amazon may be the first company to begin drone testing for commercial use back in 2013. Funding for drone related startups has sky rocketed in 2016 to millions of dollars, and of course medical startups have not been left behind. Entrepreneurs in the medical industry have also begun prototyping and testing several of these drones that can be used for a range of purposes. Some entrepreneurs are working to build a network of ‘flying things’ to deliver critical medical supplies to inaccessible areas all across the world. Although the ambition may be set very high, but with million people living with no access to all-season roads, there is certainly plenty of room for improvement. On July 27, 2016, Michigan-based Vayu, Inc. and Stony Brook University, with support from the Madagascan government and backing from the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), have completed the first ever series of long-range, fully autonomous drone flights transporting blood and stool samples from rural villages to centralized labs. The exercise was undertaken to demonstrate how drones can be used to improve healthcare for vulnerable rural communities, where delivery of care is hampered by poor or non-existent roads. The samples were flown from villages in […]
By default Windows 10 is slowing down your Internet Bandwidth.
After installing Windows 10, Feeling like your Internet Bandwidth is dropping away? Windows 10 is stealing your network bandwidth. Along with the privacy features related to Wi-Fi Sense, Windows 10 users should check for another hidden by default feature that uses your network bandwidth to share updates with other Windows 10 users across the Internet. Microsoft launched Windows 10 on July 29 and offered a free upgrade to Windows 7,8 and 8.1 users, and for anyone who wants to download it. But, handling millions of simultaneous 3.5GB downloads is quite difficult for the company. So, in order to cope up with the issue, Microsoft has baked a new feature into its latest desktop operating system that uses the torrent-style approach to obtain software updates, allowing Windows 10 users to download updates from other users. The feature, known as Windows Update Delivery Optimization (WUDO), is initially designed to help users get faster software updates, which is quite a good idea to handle massive internet traffic of up to 40 Terabits per second (TBps). WUDO works a lot like torrents work. Your computer running Windows 10 is used as part of a peer-to-peer network to deliver software updates faster to others, each person […]
HP Inc. agreed to buy Samsung Electronics Co.’s printer business for $1.05 billion
HP Inc. agreed to buy Samsung Electronics Co.’s printer business for $1.05 billion, a deal designed to bolster the Silicon Valley company’s offerings in the market for high-volume devices that handle printing and copying for office work groups. The transaction, which is subject to regulatory approval, is expected to close within 12 months, the companies said on Monday. Samsung also agreed to buy between $100 million and $300 million in HP shares through open-market purchases after the business sale is completed. Several hours after disclosing the deal, HP unveiled 16 new multifunction printers targeted at so-called A3 larger printer-copier combinations that are the stronghold of such companies as Xerox Corp., Canon Inc., Ricoh Co. and Konica Minolta Inc. HP, created as part of the breakup of Hewlett-Packard Co. last fall, sells personal computers but gets most of its profit from supplying ink and toner for its printers. It is the market leader in the desktop printer business. That business hasn’t been growing lately, in part because PC users print fewer pages these days. HP last month reported that revenue from ink and toner supplies declined 18% in the third fiscal quarter from the year-earlier period, while printer hardware unit sales fell 10%.
Recall of Samsung’s Galaxy Note 7
As reports of damage from exploding batteries in the smartphone circulated, prompting Samsung officials to urge Note 7 users to turn off their devices and return them. Users have described explosions in cars, homes and hotel rooms while charging and watching video on the phone. The reports point to a deepening problem for the Note 7, beyond the 35 instances of faulty rechargeable lithium batteries Samsung initially disclosed when it halted sales and announced a voluntary recall in early September. At the time, it had sold 2.5 million of the devices. According to USA Today, Late last week, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission warned consumers to stop using and charging their Galaxy Note 7s due to the risk of exploding batteries. That followed a warning from the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration to avoid turning on or charging Note 7s in airplanes.

Bitcoin a new form of digital currency
Bitcoin is the first example of a growing category of money known as cryptocurrency. Bitcoin is a form of digital currency, created and held electronically. Bitcoin uses peer-to-peer technology to operate with no central authority or banks; managing transactions and the issuing of bitcoins is carried out collectively by the network. No one controls it. Bitcoins aren’t printed, like dollars or euros – they’re produced by people, and increasingly businesses, running computers all around the world, using software that solves mathematical problems. Bitcoin is open-source; its design is public, nobody owns or controls Bitcoin and everyone can take part. Through many of its unique properties, Bitcoin allows exciting uses that could not be covered by any previous payment system. What makes it different from normal currencies? Bitcoin can be used to buy things electronically. In that sense, it’s like conventional dollars, euros, or yen, which are also traded digitally. However, bitcoin’s most important characteristic, and the thing that makes it different to conventional money, is that it is decentralized. No single institution controls the bitcoin network. This puts some people at ease, because it means that a large bank can’t control their money. Who created it? A software developer called Satoshi […]
