How Does Yahoo and Google Find Information?
Do you really know how a these search companies like Google and Yahoo really operate? If you are like millions of people you probably type in into the search box of Google and Yahoo what you are looking for and take what it gives you. Most people will click on the one of the links in the top 10 searches and let the other thousand search suggestions fall to the wayside. Let’s explore at how things pop into the top 10 of search results and let’s look at why the large search engines pick these items to be in the top 10.
Before we go any farther lets put the myth that search engines are bias. All web based search compaines even the giants like Google, Bing, and Yahoo are not biased; they keep a very competitive edge and for the most part offer high quality search results for the customers. If they were bias then they would lose in ranking because the
Everybody either has one, or has used one. No longer the stuff of science fiction movies, touch technology has transformed they was people interact with their hand held devices and computers. However it is not only used on personal devices, but also is now a common interface when using public services such ATM machines and interactive ticket booths. In this article we explain about different types of touch technology, optical, projected capacitive, and infrared, and the use of this technology in information kiosks.
There are many types of touch screen technologies, in this article we discuss optical, projected capacitive, and infrared technology.
With optical touch you have image sensors placed around the edges of a display, and armed with infrared backlights, it can then distinguish two contact points at the same time. This allows users to use two finger interactions such as zoom and rotations. Optical touch is easy to use and normally provides an accurate and responsive experience for the user.
Projected Capacitive touch (PCT) is what is commonly used
Since the beginning of the world, there has been “technology change” surrounding those individuals in that society. The first societies developed fire and even an irrigation system to make sure all of their crops were well watered and taken care of to make sure the village was well fed. In the present, technology is everywhere. This sudden burst of growth, in the technological sense, has skyrocketed beyond belief in these past years. Before, people got along just fine without cell phones, mp3 players, iPods, and personal computer. Nowadays, take someone’s cell phone away from them and they are lost. Most people would agree that technology is an immense help, but sometimes what is so useful and handy, hinders the society as a whole in advancing communication with others around them.
With the formation of E-mail, there has been a definite loss in hand written letters as well as phone calls. Getting in contact with people on a personal level is no more. The hand written letters to friends or family has almost become extinct.
Medical voice recognition technology has reshaped the landscape of medical documentation. Now, physicians and medical facilities do not need to wait for many days or weeks just to document important medical data about patients. With the advanced medical transcription technology, information could be easily filed in electronic medical records so that retrieval of data could be made accurately, quickly, and conveniently.
In the past, physicians needed to dictate their narratives in tape recorders, which need to be turned over to a third-party transcription services provider within a few days for transcribing of information. The process is long, winding, and tedious, aside from being costly. It usually takes about a week at the fastest rate to complete a medical transcription job. The fees could also be significant when accumulated in a year. Thus, medical transcription has made itself a lucrative sector of the medical industry. Now, with the advent of medical voice recognition technology, medical documentation would not need to rely to medical transcriptionists. Medical facilities could have their text format data on their own just by installing and using appropriate voice recognition and transcription software.
The advantage of the technology
I recently had a conversation with a client about conversion rate on his website. He was confused why such a small percentage of traffic was calling or emailing him (<5%). The question was “what were the other 95% looking for? ” One of the keys to internet marketing is to understand why people might be coming to your site and what would entice them to take action in the future.
When potential customers are searching about products and services they are said to be in one of three phases.
Awareness: Trying to find out what options exist and what could be applicable to them. They know the problem they are trying to solve, but have little idea what solutions are there.
Research: The searcher has a better idea what they are looking for, but are now looking for more information to narrow down their decision.
Ready to act: The searcher has specific criteria on what they are looking for they are now looking for the “best” product. The “ready to act” searcher is going to have the fastest and highest conversion rate when they
As it seems, information technology is progressing very rapidly – as a consequence it’s also correct that the expense for hardware, software programs, and associated expertise are decreasing every year. Nevertheless, this trend does not indicate that firms are paying a reduced amount. The top reason spending Too Much because our increasing necessity for advanced capabilities proceeds to strengthen our desire for technology, and obtaining the most recent and finest business typically more costly, especially when you’re married to a specified system or platform. If you can live with the previous year’s technology and capabilities, or if you can comfortably swap from one system to a different one, then you can most likely expend less. A second important reason, interestingly enough, company a remaining ever-present vision of IT as an accessory that requires modest attention when it is time for long-term preparation. When firms identify what it is they need and want in the present time, but also what they will need in coming years in relation to technology, the steep curve of rising prices can be moderated, and numerous times compressed through proper scale administration.
A third cause for overspending in IT
One of today’s hottest career fields is computer and information technology. The number of jobs is projected to expand for the foreseeable future. So, what traits must a person have to be successful in an IT career?
The person must enjoy problem solving. Computers are deliberately used to solve problems in the private and public sector for the purpose of increasing productivity. Programmers, analysts and software developers create programs that make it possible.
To succeed in problem solving, an individual must enjoy troubleshooting, which is the systematic identification of the required steps a computer program must follow to solve a problem. Becoming involved in a structured hunt for a solution requires that a person be patient and logical.
Computer software and hardware are very complex and can function differently, depending upon the specific circumstances, conditions and connected infrastructure. A programmer might fail, for example, to recognize that a specific line of “code” isn’t designed to function on a particular brand of networking devices. Finding the error might take weeks and require that multiple perspectives be considered. Solutions can be slow in coming, very illusive and hard to
The Information Science is the discipline that investigates the properties and behavior of information, the forces that govern the flow and the means to process the information for maximum accessibility and utility. It has a component of pure science research that is not related to its application and a component of applied science, which develops products and services
The Information Management (IM) of helps in increasing the competitiveness of business and organizational processes of modernization from the point of view of planning and strategic use of information and associated technologies, and quality specifications, content and information security in the company.
The importance of the Information Technology is the application of the storage and retrieval of information and its dissemination in the data banks and networks of computers suitable for different systems. Information Society Human conglomerate that, by virtue of technological change, has had its shares of survival and development based on the creation, storage, distribution and intense use of information resources. Every system that using or not the resources of Information Technology, manipulates and generates information can generally be considered Information System.
I love learning new stuff and it saddens me when I come across business owners and directors who stop learning and become ineffective. If you plan well, gathering business knowledge may cost you little but your time and it’s often fun too.
Be informed by newsletters
Letting technology inform you is so much easier than hunting for what you want. Many websites offer to e-mail daily or weekly tips. If you are innovative, you may even use the RSS (really simple syndication) services from many search engines (like Google) to feed news to your desktop and to tell you when relevant content is posted.
Share common concerns with peers
Those worthwhile organisations that charge you annual dues can often provide learning opportunities, particularly if you get involved with the local branch. So why not work on shared ideas with peers in your professional community?
Where you work alone, why not gather a group of like-minded people to help each other? Your skill is probably someone else’s Achilles heel so you can gain while sharing your issues and needs.
We get information from many sources and it increases every day. Many of us feel overwhelmed by all this information, and here are some reasons why:
- Americans spend over three hours per day on the computer.
- Not including time at work.
- It is estimated that the average American consumed more than 34 gigabytes of information per day in 2008. That is 34,000,000,000 bytes per day, or about 7 DVDs. And that was only in America.
- The worlds digital data requirement is more than 300 exabytes.
One exabyte is a billion gigabytes. One followed by 18 zeros.
If you stacked CDs on top of each other to hold this much data the stack would reach 288,00 miles high.
The Internet has made getting information almost instantaneous. Multimedia makes it possible to see and hear something that is thousands of miles away, almost in real time. New technology is being replaced constantly, making it old technology. Information comes to us by cell phone, television, radio, books, magazines, advertising, newspapers, the Internet, word of mouth and other sources that you may think of.
Information saturation can drive you bananas, if you let it. We have to find a way
PRINCE is a project management method; not system development, which covers the organisation, management and control of projects. Since its introduction in 1989, PRINCE has become widely used in both the public and private sectors and is now the UK’s de facto standard for project management. Although PRINCE was originally developed for the needs of IT projects, the method has also been used on many non-IT projects. PRINCE requires a dedicated team to be established to manage and carry out each project. It therefore aims to provide a supporting framework between the current state of affairs and the planned future state. PRINCE focuses attention on end-products rather than activities, ensuring that the organisation actually gets what it wants out of the project. Quality is seen as a necessary and integral part of the project and the focus on end-products enables the criteria by which quality is to be judged to be specified at the outset of the project. It requires the development of a viable “business case” for the project at its outset and that the business case needs to be periodically reviewed.
In PRINCE a project is regarded as having the following

Internet is a huge ocean of competitive and technological information. Information searching and extraction on domains of interest is tedious and results in large set of documents. Identification of relevant documents form is more tedious and time consuming. There are many intelligence text extraction tools available worldwide. But, these tools are fully automated and generated results based on keyword frequency. There is no tool available which takes input from the human and then run automation based on the user definitions or objectives.
Patents are good source of technology and competitive information and could be used for better actionable intelligence from text mining. A patent document consists of core information concerning a particular invention in a technology domain and the key elements, processes and methodology of the invention are vested in the title, abstract, summary, claims and detailed description of the preferred embodiments of the invention. Additionally, US class and an IPC class provides the key parameters of the invention. But, in case of US or IPC class, it is better to consider all the classes, not just the primary class to get better understanding of the invention. Thus, it is easy to run
Wireless communication has diffused faster than any other communication technology in history. To begin with, the most pervasive technology in this field has been -Mobile Phone which brought a wave of variations in the mode of communication.
Within a span of about 10 years Mobile telephony has moved from being the technology of a privileged few to an essentially main stream technology. It actually began to take off world wide in mid 90’s when the ratio of mobile to land line phone went up from 1:34(1991) to about 1:8(1998). By 2000 the ratio of mobile phone to land line phone rose to 1:2 and by 2003, mobile phone subscriptions had overtaken mainline subscription for the first time. Since then mobile phone subscriptions have continued to rise effectively at a fast rate. With the passage of time mobile phones have not only become substitutes for wired phones but have overshadowed them.
There has been a significant increase in mobile phone subscription in the past decade and mobile phones have outstripped fixed lines in most countries. The main reason being that the mobile phones come with a wealth of features like text messaging, email, internet access, games, music
The use of technology in education is not very old. A few years ago, the education was all about schooling and physical classes, but now, the way of learning and teaching is changed a lot. With the introduction of online education, the way of learning is improved. Previously, we used to learn things only by reading them in the books or through our teachers, but now both the study resources and methods have changed. In this article, we will discuss 7 major technologies that have changed our education system.
The internet: Internet has made it very easy to access all kinds of information. With the help of the internet, we can read books, attend online classes, learn through online study material, and can even join a degree course online. Internet is accessible anywhere and anytime making it easy to read.
Mobile: Mobile devices including mobile phones, tablets and laptops have changed the learning process. With the help of these devices, we can access study material anywhere and can read anytime. We can use the internet on our mobile devices. Mobile technology has shifted the books from table to our pocket.
Brainwave technology has been around for a long time now, and this article will explain a little on where it has been, where it came from and where it is now. Of course you need to understand that the power of the mind and such technology has a lot more literature attached to it and if you need to find out as much as you can about this, is when you do your own research. This brief article can only give you a brief overview of the market and how it has been doing and what it can be doing for you, but more and more people are getting their information from official sources, so look into this offline and online to enrich yourselves with some dedicated information for yourself.
One thing about brainwave technology is that it has been around for a long time and it was discovered close to a hundred years ago that the brain was capable of producing these brainwaves. Latest technology allowed us to actually measure these brainwaves, and E.E.G machines that are able to measure these brainwaves on the top of the scalp allow us to exactly
Creating a blog or website when you have no website technology know-how and limited funds can be a daunting prospect at any age. More important, though, is whether you really want and need a blog or website for your business or some other aspect of your life.
Before committing time and money to any website or blog creation teacher, take some simple steps to introduce yourself to the subject of website technology. Focus on increasing your basic knowledge at little to no cost by gathering information from the following sources.
• Call your local library. Most libraries now include a bank of computers for their members’ use and classes intended to increase their members’ ability to use them. My local library provides the services of a computer “geek” to answer questions. Does your local geek have the know-how to teach you how to create a website or blog? Is the library planning to give a low-cost course. Or perhaps the geek has a friend in the business or has taken an online class in the subject and can recommend who you should turn to. It never hurts to ask.
The age of modern day learning has arrived. It is no longer a matter of whether we want to integrate technology and education; it is a necessity. The reality poses an immense problem and threat to the longstanding educational institutions that have for the most part remained unchanged for nearly a century. Who would have imagined that the alphabet’s letter “E” would forever transform the face of education to E-Ducation?
Technology in education has progressed from basic tools such as the abacus, pencil, ruler, paper and calculator to computers, laptops, iPads, tablets, software and apps. The technological advancements alone are forcing the manner in which teachers teach, how students learn, the ways schools are structured and breaking the barriers between home and school life. At its core, technology is impacting the very essence of the future of humanity.
Digital Natives: A Generation Dedicated to Learning with Technology
The prominence and rise of technology in the world applies to all aspects of life including how we learn. It appears that the days of “open your textbook, read the following pages and answer the questions” will be for the
With the advent of internet revolution, technology is no more a supporting function, rather it has become a driver for business growth in any sector and of any size. Small businesses in non-technology sectors, find it a daunting task to articulate a Technology Strategy, rather, most of them don’t even have it. Not only are these companies cash strapped, they have minimal or no internal capabilities and limited access to expert guidance on technology. Not having an effective Technology Strategy can drain a company’s resources, push them behind the competition or they may even cease to exist. This article provides basic advice for small business owners on where to get started. Below are some factors to take into account while creating an effective Technology Strategy.
Legal and Government Compliance
Planning for technology that keeps the business in legal and government compliance comes before anything else. Last thing a business wants is getting distracting from core trade and going bankrupt contesting litigations. For example, a restaurant business should have technology planned for Sales Tax, PCI Compliance, and Employee Time sheets etc.
Core Business and Customer Experience
In the last half of the 20th century it was President Kennedy who took up the gauntlet of outlining a national directive focusing on science and technology. The course that the United States chartered then propelled America into the space age. No longer was man confined to this planet alone. We reached for the stars and did the impossible. We put a man on the moon, built the International Space Station, launched the Hubble Telescope which opened up the universe for all of mankind, and sent the Voyager on a never ending quest to “boldly go where no man has gone before.”
This all came about because a sitting President had the courage and took the leadership to lay the groundwork for the United States to act on a decisive plan of direction which open up so many windows of opportunity for millions of Americans. Some how for the past five decades the United States lost the exuberance that prevailed when President Kennedy pointed this country in a new direction.
Sure, there have been many marvels along the way in technology, science, and medicine. The Internet for one has opened
