Using a Wi-Fi Signal Booster to avoid losing internet connectivity

October 4th, 2012

Having problems with receiving or placing calls from you cell phone? Don’t just blame the manufacturer because it might not have anything to do with him. No matter how superior or costly the phone is, reception issues affect everyone when the signal from the tower does not get across to your phone. There could be many reasons for dropped calls and no signals with the primary one being that the relevant area is far from a cell phone tower or your signal is crossing a dead zone where there is no signal at all.  Since the main reason you need a phone to give calls and receive them, you have to do something to solve the problem.

Apart from moving to another area which I don’t think is practical, the next best and only thing you can do is to get yourself a cell phone signal booster to strengthen the signal received from the tower. Keep in mind that you’re not the only person assailed by this issue and evidence show that a majority of people in the country suffer from this issue when you look at the rising sales figures of the cell phone signal booster.  What a signal booster can do is amplify the weak signal to make it strong enough to cross a dead zone or other barriers such as high concrete walls and aluminum sidings to reach your phone.

Many reputed manufacturers that have come to recognize this problem have designed a signal booster providing an easy way out for people who have been suffering with dropped calls and no calls for a long time. There are of course reliable models and the not so reliable ones and it’s up to the user to do some research and buy what’s most suitable for his mobile device.  Another area where signal distortion causes havoc is with internet users who find it a real hassle to get a connection to their network due to the same problem.

Anyone who has experienced problems when trying to access a network to search for information, to do shopping online or simply to watch a movie will understand how frustrating it can be not to be able to get a connection to the internet.  For some, it’s a case of the connection appearing and disappearing which makes it even more of an irritant causing a lot of time to be wasted.    The easiest way to overcome this problem is by opting for a Wi-Fi signal booster that would help to increase the range of the signal considerably.

Installing such a signal booster is no big deal and can be done by following a few simple instructions that are included with the device.  All that has to be done is to plug the wireless signal booster into the router you use at present and give it   a password so that no one else within the range of the signal can access it on your account.  This type of signal booster is also great if all members of your family own laptops so that they can make use of the Wi-Fi signal booster to enhance their connection as well. Keep in mind that a wireless booster can be used anywhere in your home as long as it’s within the stipulated range and all your signal problems will be solved.

Benefits of using visual display equipment such as Network Cameras

September 27th, 2012

Web Cam, Network Camera, Video Conferencing Camera, Document Camera
With internet Live chat becoming one of the most popular aspects of online benefits offered to people, it has now become possible for friends and family or even business associates to chat with others across the world on live time.  But it was the introduction of the web cam that really revolutionized this feature by allowing people to see each other across the miles which added a whole new dimension to what it meant to communicate on the internet.  Although this was possible, the webcams used by many were not good enough to display good images or quality sound because it was mostly a desktop PC or laptop that was used for this purpose.

It was only when the iPad came into being that people found the real worth of Live Chat which managed to solve most of the earlier sound and image problems. But even so, a quality webcam that was compatible with the iPad was required for this purpose in order to produce non grainy clear images on the screen. One of the best out of those that can be recommended is the UVC webcam that carries a variety of external devices and since it needs no driver installations can be connected and disconnected at any time.

The webcam or video conferencing camera as some prefer to call it is not only for social interaction because in today’s busy world, most business organizations and even world leaders use it for the purpose of holding sessions with their counterparts in other countries. Provided the webcam used for this purpose is of really high standard and the internet connection is strong and fast, the images that could be derived at such meetings are incredibly clear, sharp and natural.

Most homes and offices have also started installing surveillance equipment for security reasons in view of the high rate of crimes and burglaries reported everywhere. While some prefer the CCTV camera to see what’s going on in their neighborhood, others prefer the network camera that can digitize the images and make them stay digitized offering you   very clear images on the video camera. The network camera technology therefore makes it much easier to identify a burglar or a suspicious character hovering near your home or office easily because identification is possible from the clear displays they offer.

Another advantage of the Network camera is that  if you connect it to an existing infrastructure, you will be able to get clear images with no interface problems, remote accessibility and also save money  due to low cost of installation.

With the environment calling for greener solutions in the use of day to day equipment, using visual presentations for educations can help to lessen the amount of paper that’s being used resulting in cutting down tress on a massive scale. One way of doing this is by making use of the document camera both by students and teachers to provide teaching through presentations rather than by using paper based text and documents.

A student will find it so much easier to understand a subject through visual presentation where even 3D objects, artifacts and any type of item, photograph or document can be displayed on an interface screen or whiteboard through a document camera.  A document camera is not only capable of capturing a still object or person but also any moving target making it a really worthwhile piece of equipment to have in any classroom today.

Burning a PS3 game to an ordinary DVD – Is this possible?

September 27th, 2012

A question that is often asked by gaming fans is whether it’s possible to burn PS3 games.  I wouldn’t go as far to say that it’s not difficult; because there are certain ways that can be used to do it if you following the instructions correctly and use the relevant copying software for the job.  Most gamers tend to store their computer games on DVDs which is not the best media for storage. They can be easily damaged, lost or copied over. It’s much safer to burn your PS3 games if you want to make sure they’ll be there for you to use whenever necessary.

You might not be aware that PS3 games discs are very fragile and should therefore be looked after with much care for long term enjoyment. With a video or movie CD, a small scratch or blip might not make a big difference whereas on a PS3 games disc it can mean all the difference being able to play the games and throwing it on the garbage heap. These gaming discs come packed with a lot of features that are critical to its performance and the slightest damage will make them completely unplayable.

The best solution to this problem is to burn the original PS3 games disc by using reliable copying software that can be   downloaded from the internet.  You will also need good quality blank DVD’s for the copying process and a computer that has disc burning properties. But not just any computer as you will see why.    Make sure you read the copying software to ensure you get it right. This is not difficult and all you have to do is to insert the discs and start following the automated instructions that are displayed on the screen. It might however take some time for the burning process to take place, so have patience.

By now you must be wondering if it’s that easy why people are not doing it more often. Well, here’s the problem. Most PS3 games have been burnt on Blu-Ray discs making it impossible to copy them to ordinary DVDs. Although a Blu-ray disc is capable of storing more data than an ordinary DVD, they don’t have the speed of installation that the latter has. There is in fact a lot of controversy about the Blu-ray disc being used as the storage media for PS3 games. But that’s another story in itself.  So how does one get round the problem of copying the games to another disc?

Another issue is that these discs are usually writer protected which makes it impossible to copy them. Sony has made them that way to make it as difficult as possible for software pirates to copy their PS3 games and sell them at much reduced prices. So let’s hope the only reason you want to burn a PS3 game to a disc is to keep the original safe from being damaged.  It’s for this purpose that you have to download special software that will allow you to copy the game to a new disc and also be in possession of a blu-ray disc burner.  If you can get all these right, it’ll be worth it to keep your precious and expensive PS3 games from being damaged in the long term.

Many uses the Webcam and the Network Camera can be put to

September 27th, 2012

The webcam is such a small piece of equipment that you would hardly notice if you didn’t know how valuable it is to people like us staying far away from home. Leaving family and going far   is not as bad as it used to be because you know the moment you walk into your apartment and turn on the computer, you’re just a click of the button away from seeing your family and siblings. Not having to pay a cent when calling from one computer to the other has also greatly contributed to the popularity of programs such as SKYPE, not to mention the unbelievable pleasure it gives you when the connection is made and you hear a familiar voice.

When investing in a webcam its wiser to pay extra and buy a superior model that will ensure a clear picture and connectivity without you having to strain your eyes to look at grainy pictures that keep breaking up making it a extremely frustrating when you want to discuss something important. There are webcams and Webcams with some being sold around $15-$20 where the performance matches the price. But if you go for a Logitech model you will have a clear screen and pleasant interaction but this will be necessary only if you’re using a desktop PC because modern laptops and Notebooks have the webcam built in to them.

They’re very useful not only for us to chat with family and friends but also in offices when it’s necessary to talk to people in branches spread across the country or   overseas. Just think how much you can save on telephone calls merely by being connected to the computer on a webcam? What’s even better is that you can talk limitlessly because services like SKYPE are completely free if you’re talking from computer to computer. It is however possible to call from a computer to a landline or mobile for which   you’re expected to deposit money in your SKYPE account.

Our bosses too are making good use of programs like SKYPE and the webcam to hold meetings with their foreign counterparts and business associates and the fact that everything is free of charge makes it possible for them to hold even   lengthy conferences and long drawn discussions that can never happen if they had to pay for it. Similarly using such a program with a webcam means you get to see the people you wish to talk to face to face and thrash out any problems there are without having to buy an air ticket and fly half way across the globe.

A network camera provides a similar service but for a different reason. A network camera is what you would call a video surveillance device that is fixed to observe and record everything that happens in the vicinity. With so many unsavory things happening these days, many residents and business owners not to mention government establishments have started fixing network cameras for security reasons.

The better and more advanced cameras have a web server inbuilt and come with its own IP address so that you don’t even have to connect it to your computer or network. But this is not really necessary if you’re simply monitoring your home and is only required for high security institutions that must have round the clock surveillance to filter suspicious characters and activities.
