Taking a Quantum Leap into Wireless Technology

Quantum mechanicsQuantum Internet may be closer than what many people may believe. Based on quantum mechanics, information can be shared between two points without traveling through the space in between. In 1935, Einstein theorized of a "spooky" behavior that particles are still somehow connected through entanglement although they have been separated. The ability to tap this behavior could create security and ultra-fast access to information.

Wireless Network War-Which Wireless Network is the Best

Wireless Network War: Which Wireless Network is the Best?
 
Cutthroat competition is always a funny thing, but the game is even odder when it comes to wireless providers. The truth is that even though customers are likely to complain about dropped calls and horrible customer service, they are unlikely to switch to another provider. Why? The simple truth is that because wireless service is such a dizzying equation of factors ranging from price to coverage to contracts, the bottom line can seem elusive.  Here, we put a few of the  top players head to head to make things a little simpler.

Google wants to eliminate search engine-introducing Semantic Search

Google Wants to Eliminate Search
 
The search engine giant Google always has something up its sleeve. At times the company is introducing new and fun gadgets and some times it is researching on how to build robots. But the company really wants to take a step back and look at the basics for a while especially its search facility. Google is not just experimenting this time – it is serious. The experts at Google want to eliminate the one thing that Google does best – searching.
 
There is nothing to worry about because the company intends to introduce semantic searching which, to them, makes more sense. The company has provided that when users usually search for something, all the related search results appear on the page. The user has to quickly glance at all the results before clicking on the one that is the most relevant. This is what Google is not happy about.

 
What is Semantic Search?
 
The company wishes to introduce a new form of search which will make more sense from the user’s perspective. They will not be thrown a bulk of search results at. With semantic searching, the algorithm working behind the search engine will understand the meaning of the search term and hence provide meaningful results, saving users a lot of hassle and a lot of time. In short, the new search is going to allow users to smart search for everything on the web. A perfect example of such an algorithm is Panda which was recently introduced by Google and has affected 12% of the overall search results.
 
Semantic searching or in other terms, meaningful searching is based on a simple concept. When you enter a word in the search bar, for example, “music”, Google’s auto-fill dropdown will show results like “music video”, “music artist”, etc. The word music will show in the end. These dropdown options are implying that people mostly search for these terms on the search engine and if you click on just “music”, it will be set as your primary dropdown option. Hence, the search engine “understands” the most relevant search term for your results.
 
Website Owners Reaction
 
Website owners on the other hand are not at all happy with this change. For years they have worked on optimizing their websites for Google with the algorithm the company had initially provided. Now the company is changing the algorithm and website owners see their optimizing going down the drain. However, in reality this is not the case. Google is just preventing website owners to dig out the most-searched for keywords and then bulk them on to their websites.
 
According to BusinesstoCommunity, the company is prioritizing towards penalizing website owners who spam websites with their links and such keywords. It believes that the practice of keyword stuffing has got to go since it is eventually the wrong way to make potential clients or customers land on the website.
 
In order to calm website owners down, Google has provided that the new algorithm is going to consist of an improved form of the same algorithm which will provide an opportunity to work towards legitimate optimization instead of spamming.

What is Bitcoin – An Introduction

Bitcoin LogoWhat is Bitcoin?

Bitcoin refers to a new currency created in the year 2009 by an anonymous party with the alias Satoshi Nakamoto.  Bitcoin transactions are executed without any middle men and as such no banks are required. Moreover, you don’t have to pay any transaction fees or offer your real name.  Millions of merchants all over the world today have started to accept Bitcoins since they can use them for purchasing pizza, web hosting services and even manicures.

As a form of electronic money, bitcoins are definitely independent of traditional banking systems.  Ever since these coins started circulating in the year 2009, they have grown to become one of the most prominent elements even rising above a couple of fledging currencies.  This virtual currency mainly relies on computer networks that help in solving complex problems as a means of keeping track of every bitcoin that is used in a transaction.  Unlike the case is for traditional currency where the central bank might limit the amount of money printed, there is no known authority which governs bitcoin supply today.

Why Make Use Of Bitcoins?

Bitcoins can be used to purchase lots of merchandise anonymously. In addition, it helps to ensure ease and effectiveness of international payments since bitcoins are never tied to any regulations or the laws of the land.  Many small businesses today prefer them since they do not incorporate credit card fees.  Some people are even opting to buy bitcoins as an investment with the hope that they might grow in value.

How to Acquire Bitcoins

When you want to acquire bitcoins, there are three main approaches which you can employ. You can either:
  • Buy on an exchange
  • Request transfers
  • Do bitcoin mining
A number of marketplaces which are referred to as bitcoin exchanges allow you to conveniently buy and sell bitcoins through the use of a myriad currencies.  Today, Mt. Gox is known to be the largest exchange for Bitcoins.  Secondly, bitcoins can be transferred from one person to another through the use of computers or mobile applications. This is similar to the aspect of sending money digitally. Last but not least, people also compete in bitcoin mining through the use of computers. This is the main means through which bitcoins are created.

How Volatile Are Bitcoins?

The dollar value of bitcoins has been rising exponentially over the past couple of years.  Many people are becoming aware of this type of currency and as such many speculators have also decided to jump into the ever volatile market.  That is why there have been growing concerns from many quarters that bitcoins might actually be susceptible to fraud than the case was a few years ago. To compound this issue as well, the prices of bitcoins in various exchanges vary widely.

Where Can You Use Your Bitcoins?

Proponents of this form of currency argue that bitcoins can be used in a wide range of elements. For instance, they are widely used by consumers all over the world for electronic transactions such as online shopping.  A number of online retailers and physical stores today allow for operations using this currency even though its adoption has not yet hit the climax.  Many critics argue that bitcoins are too volatile and as such they cannot be widely adopted.
