Apple’s iWatch: Among the Most Interesting Smart Watches

Smart watches have been considered trending through time. Not long ago, we expected the smartwatches or the watch phone to become a reality, and they did. You may have noticed that these watches have made its dominance mainly in the spy movies as an imperative tool for espionage. But recently, we have seen the mobile phone giants giving the concept of watch phone a big makeover this year. Apple, Samsung or Sony has come up with their own brand of smartwatches which can take a market share from the already established tablets. The Apple just recently launched its latest product – the Apple Watch. It is set to release the product soon.

If you haven’t bought any of these smartwatches yet, then you are probably curious as to what to expect from these smartwatches. Here they are.

First, let’s talk about the Samsung Galaxy Gear. This smartwatch has a number of features which would definitely attract both Android user and non-users alike. It is packed with a 1.6 inches image viewer which can produce resolutions 320 x 320 pixels. Moreover, this smartwatch displays vivid colors and high contrast and has a built-in microphone and speakers through which the users would be able to talk directly with the help of the watch. It also had a 1.9 Megapixel camera and 720p HD video recorder that is necessary for the photography enthusiast. It also has an inbuilt 4GB memory storage space. It can easily run small local apps which are necessary for the moment.

Let’s move to the Sony SmartWatch 2. It is far less expensive than the Samsung’s counterpart. It has a 1.63-inch viewer. It comes with a resolution of 220X176 pixels. Furthermore, the LCD screen of the watch prevents user’s view to be washed out in the daylight. Also, Sony has packed the phone with several goodies like touchscreen UI, sliding widgets for viewing weather, Facebook, Twitter as well as Phone alerts. These are all rolled into one and are compatible with other Android handsets. However, it does not have that it does not have the microphone and speaker compatibility so that users have to take out the phone to use it.

The latest is the Apple’s iWatch. Before, it used to be just in the rumor stage, but now it’s set to become a reality. It looks like a wristband and it runs on the iOS software. The watch would certainly be running on iOS7 or a higher version of Apple OS. It is also expected that Apple would be incorporating several of its flagship products into the watch.

Now, with all these smartwatches, the traditional watchmakers are also taking a plunge into this changing trend. They need to set up a new strategy and shall consider these new trends to remain soaring high. They need to modernize the concept from the conventional one. Otherwise, as the smartwatches gain more and more popularity; they may hardly meet their target attraction in the market.…

COSMIC SNOWBALLS

I know we’ve had a bit of snow recently but not like the big dirty snowball that’s on its way to us now.
Its official name is Comet Machholtz, after Don Macholtz the amateur astronomer from California who discovered it last August.

“Dirty Snowball”? Yes basically that’s what they are made up of, ice and some rock
When can I see it and Where? If you followed my advice and bought binoculars you’ll be able to see it just north of a small star cluster called the “Seven Sisters” or Pleiades, high in the southern sky at the moment, if you’re lucky enough to live in a dark location it will be visible as a small fuzzy ball its tail is barely discernable. It’s at its brightest now but will be in the sky for the next few months.

BIG DEAL some of you might say, but it turns out that these “snowballs” may hold the key to life on Earth, they are now recognised as being so important that different space agencies have sent craft to recover material from them (returning to Earth presently) to landing a probe on one(on its way) and even shooting an 800lb copper bullet at one, that’s happening on the 4th of July next. I’ll fill you in on these missions in my next article.

The real BIG NEWS is that man is attempting to land a craft on another Moon,
The difference is that this is no ordinary moon, as we know it. This is TITAN the planet Saturn’s largest moon, difference being that Titan is bigger than two of our planets and has an atmosphere containing methane and various hydrocarbons and although so far from the Sun is about 60 deg C warmer than it should be, possibly due to a greenhouse effect, there may also be petrol-like lakes or even seas – definite no smoking area – Titan may resemble a primordial Earth.

Hope fully we wont have too long to wait as on FRIDAY 14th JAN next the joint ESA NASA and Italian Space Agency probe, Huygens will enter Titans atmosphere and parachute down to the surface.
The descent will take about 2 hours and Huygens will be taking a series of measurements and photos, should it survive the landing, hopefully on liquid, it will transmit data for another 2 hours to the mother ship, Cassini, which will then relay this to Earth, even at the speed of light it will take more than an hour for the signals to reach us.

You can watch this live from ESA Mission Control in Germany on BBC 2’s “STARDATE, MISSION to TITAN” AT 23:30 on the 14th.

The International Space Station will be flying over Waterford again this week
Wed 12th 18:57:55 (hour: min: sec) for 2 min
Thurs 13th 17:49:43 for 3 min
Thurs 13th 19:23:21 for 1.5 min
Fri 14th 18:14:21 for 4 min
Sat 15th 18:39:43 for 3 min.

DAS will have an observing session at the Mahon Falls Car park members will be informed of details by text as usual.

Importance of regular Maintenance of Dumbwaiter Lifts

A dumbwaiter is a small freight elevator designed for carrying objects instead of people. They are common in the modern day structures including private, public and commercial buildings. These lifts connect different floors and can be installed in schools, hospitals, restaurants, or even in private homes. However, they perfectly fit a restaurant setting and can either be hydraulic or traction depending on the owner’s preferences.

Just like with any other machine, Dumbwaiter lifts require frequent maintenance, especially in a commercial restaurant setting. A lift can make a couple of hundred journeys in a day, which takes a huge toll on its ropes, motor and
guide rails. Failure to regular service the lift can cause
lubrication problems and accumulation of debris. However, this problem can be addressed by using a lubrication spray or thin oil on the lift guide rails to enhance free movement of the cabin.

Overlooking the maintenance of the lift can lead to a breakdown or a costly repair that could have otherwise been avoided. Additionally, frequent maintenance ensures that the lift remains in a good standard, which ensures future maintenance is easy to carry out and less costly.

Maintenaince Issues

Some of the maintenance issues that arise with respect to Dumbwaiter lifts can be alleviated by keeping the lift clean from dirt and excess grime. Cleaning is an important part of maintaining the lift especially if it operates as a restaurant or food lift. However, due to the shape of the Dumbwaiter cabin, some debris may find its way into the corners making it difficult to clean. Nonetheless, this can easily be cleaned using a high powered steam cleaning device.

It is also important to follow the guidelines provided by the manufacturer with regard to maintaining the lift or consult with the relevant industrial bodies on the best ways of maintaining your Dumbwaiter lift. A poorly or badly maintained lift can create a very bad impression, let alone derail the operations in your organization. Regular maintenance can prevent such instances and ensure that it serves the purpose for which it was installed.A dumbwaiter is a small freight elevator designed for carrying objects instead of people.
