Its hard to think about our daily lifestyle without vehicles and various other means of transport that help us to move around freely, help us reach places that we want to in time. While we have cars that help us get wherever we want to, the fact is that there are many transportation issues that come with it. For instance, there are serious parking problems and if you prefer to walk it could be that you may reach late which again affects your daily routine and productivity. Today, technology is redefining the way we live with various gadgets that make our lives easier, but gradually technology is changing the way we move around and help us move quickly and with ease.
Well, even before I warm up my fingers on the laptop keyboard and the flow of words from my head gets going, I want my readers to know that this post is in response to my friend Dan Antion. Last week, Dan wrote about “How long does it take for technology to be accepted into everyday business culture?” He spiced it up with some great examples and tossed it up with his superlative sarcastic tone that made me force to write something like this which you’re going to read in a short while. Of course, if you want to read the original you have to go to Dan’s site and read it there, because I’m not sure if I’ll be able to pitch it up to the same level, but I’m focusing on the Indian perspective. It may be that somewhere down the line I may get too sentimental because I love my country and want to see it on par with any developed nations in the world.
Better computer engineering and smart technologies is something that various departments in the US government wants to ensure that they can function effectively and have better data at their disposal. In 2008, petascale computers came into operation allowing various US government departments to handle the data in the right way. However, with the improvement in technology exascale computing is soon taking over. In simple terms, exascale computing is a computing system that is capable of at least one exaFLOPS, or a billion billion calculations per seconds. It is a thousand fold leap over the currently used petascale computing machines. Currently, the United States government has put aside $126 million for exascale computing research programs like Fast Forward and other similar projects.
Just a couple of days ago, Apple created history posting a quarterly profit of $18 billion. This certainly indicates that Apple iPhone is the single best-selling gadget in the market. While many international news websites never get tired of boasting the staggering performance of Apple, the fact is that Apple is still far behind in the race, especially in India.
