As a ‘Tipping Point’ of the mobile Internet of Dusseldorf/Berlin, may 2009 – mobile computer and Navis prevail more and more voice control according to a report of the computer information service (CID). But who wants to access the computer on the road, has not always the hands free or have set eyes on his environment. The Datamonitor Group’s market research experts here see the greatest opportunities for voice applications. Worldwide sales of so-called advanced speech recognition\”(ASR) should therefore increase in smartphones and mobile small computers by $ 32.7 million in 2009 to $ 99.6 million in 2014. For speech recognition in vehicles, analysts predict an increase of now $ 64.3 million to $ 208.2 million in 2014.

Language computer count also for the search engines the most important instruments to conveniently serve the mobile Internet. So Yahoo from immediately the mobile phone application oneSearch voice \”for smartphones and the iPhone in Germany offers. The annoying typing on the small keyboard or the touch screen to fall away. It is now sufficient to pronounce the keyword by simply. Presentation of results for mobile displays optimized display: instead of long lists of links, Yahoo deliver structured responses by category.

It is most effective to let tepid air dry the hair dryer of about one meter distance.

Merited Retirement: The Good Old Light Bulb Say Goodbye

Until 2012 the incandescent is heard at gradually replaced the bulb soon the past! “This message caused confusion among many consumers. Which bulbs, professionally referred to as lamps, would now in their place appear, they wondered. The answer is: there is a quite wide range of lamps, which can serve as an alternative to the incandescent lamp. To deal with their advantages and disadvantages, therefore makes sense and can also save money. At first even a quick look back on the conventional incandescent lamp, also light bulb”called. Their abolition is considered, since the light bulb ban in force on 1 September 2009, done deal. But why is the probably most widely used lamp ever abolished? One reason for this is that the bulb is the temperature radiators.

This means: only 5% of the energy consumed by her beyond the other % 95 share in heat that can be wasted in light. The aim of the EU It’s now with the abolition of the energy-inefficient incandescent lamp to reduce CO2 to contribute. On the other hand you benefit have the bulb but its good color reproduction and its warm, pleasant light. Maybe a little unsettled by the prohibition on consumers can be helped however. As an energy-saving alternative to the incandescent, trade offered several types of lamps, e.g. energy-saving lamps, LED lamps or halogen lamps. Energy-saving lamps are available for several years.

It is their variety of brightness, shape and colour. A comparison with an ordinary incandescent lamp shows that an energy-saving lamp with the same lighting performance consumes up to 80% less energy and has a six times higher life span. A 12-Watt energy-saving lamp performance roughly equivalent to of a 60-watt light bulb. Also, LEDs, the light-emitting diodes, are a promising and highly efficient alternative to the incandescent lamp. Until in the 1990s into colour available only in yellow, red and green, are White high-power LEDs today an adequate replacement for the 40-watt bulb.

However her flowers anytime a similar fate as the bulb although it consumes up to 30% less energy. Halogen lamps are affected by the light bulb ban as follows: meet it not at least the energy efficiency class D, will be 2012 not to buy them.
