Gmail will prevent leaks of information

Google helps a hand to all entrepreneurs whose businesses could harm the leak of confidential data. An American concern has announced that the business version of Gmail will be equipped with a special technology that will scan emails in the box to prevent important data from being taken over by the competition.

The American company has just launched a new program called Data Loss Prevention, which aims to protect corporate mail from leaking sensitive information. The system will scan the documents on an ongoing basis by using an optical character recognition system to ensure that they do not contain sensitive information such as passwords or other codes.

This process is to be done before sending an email, which will first be checked for the presence of certain words, phrases and numbers. If the system detects, for example, a credit card number, the email will be paused.

One of the first personal computers went to auction

Many are fascinated by the prices of their first Apple computers, but few are aware that the Kenbak-1 model was available much earlier than the Californian launch of their equipment. And that’s one of those machines that was recently auctioned.

Kenbak-1 is the first personal computer built by John Blankenbaker, which was introduced to the world in 1971, so much earlier than the Altair 8800 and five years before Apple I, albeit slightly after the Datapoint 2200. The machine was offered for $ 500, and the builder hoped that the school would be interested in introducing students to programming.

The device did not have a microprocessor at all and only had 256 bytes of RAM. Kembak-1 has not succeeded commercially, and the constructor now admits that the fault of failure is wrongly defining the target. In retrospect, he thinks it was a good idea to send his product to hobbyists instead of educational institutions.

Kembak-1 was created in a total of around 50 copies, which last year began appearing at auctions. One of them was recently sold for $ 31,000, while another one was auctioned in Germany last weekend.

100 years of elextrolux vacuum cleaners

In 2012 it will be 100 years since Electrolux presented its first Lux1 vacuum cleaner. Since then many improvements have been made, leading to the creation of leading models – the Green Range line and the UltraOne vacuum cleaner. Electrolux “introducing a vacuum cleaner under the thatch” has revolutionized home cleaning.

Lux 1

The few vacuum cleaners that could be found in homes at the beginning of the twentieth century were huge, unwieldy and very heavy appliances. At that time, the founder of the company Electrolux, brilliant salesman Axel Wenner-Gren saw at the shop window in Vienna American vacuum cleaner. He immediately realized the potential of such a device, provided that it would be smaller, better and cheaper. In 1912 he managed to realize his vision. This was the Lux1 vacuum cleaner (Electrolux was founded in Sweden 7 years later in 1919), weighing 14 kilograms.

Model V

Lux1 has quickly become a huge success. He was used in houses and institutions of various types in the Swedish Royal Palace. Nine years later, in 1921, Wenner-Gren surprised everyone with a new solution – he put the vacuum cleaner on his side and mounted skids such as sleds. This makes the vacuum cleaner more mobile and easier to handle. Model V, because it was named a new vacuum cleaner, also became a great success.

From the Luxomatic to the most modern models

Only in the 1960s did the Luxomatic model appear, the first in which the skids were replaced with something that now appears to be a natural part of any vacuum cleaner – wheels. Luxomatic was also the first vacuum cleaner with an automatic rewinding cable, bag filling indicator, and paper bags closing when throwing.

In the 21st century, Electrolux presented two groundbreaking inventions that were a response to the observed trends – the automatic robotic vacuum cleaner for those who do not have time to clean and wireless vacuum cleaners for quick cleaning. In 2001 an automatic vacuum cleaner was created – Trilobite, and in 2004 – an elegant, vacuum cleaner Ergorapido.

Today, Electrolux is focused on creating eco-friendly, energy-saving products such as UltraOne Green. This device uses 50% less energy than a standard vacuum cleaner and is 70% recycled. UltraOne Green is one of several Green models available for the production of recycled plastic.

Over the past 100 years, Electrolux has created some of the most popular and innovative models of vacuum cleaners:

1912 – Lux 1 is created, smaller, lighter and more efficient vacuum cleaner

1921 – a vacuum cleaner on the model V was introduced. This was the first vacuum cleaner that really deserved the name of a household vacuum cleaner. It was adapted to work comfortably at home and became the starting point for all subsequent changes and improvements.

1964 – Luxomatic appears, the first generation vacuum cleaner that has a rewinding cable, a self-closing paper dust bag, and a bag filled indicator.

2001 – Trilobite is the first mass-produced automatic vacuum cleaner. The Trilobite, a wheel-shaped vacuum cleaner, was 13 centimeters in height and 35 centimeters in diameter and made it possible to clean the home almost without human intervention.

2004 – Ergorapido 2 in 1 vacuum cleaner is created. This was the first vacuum cleaner in a new category of beautifully designed column vacuums that can be left in a visible place and always available at hand for quick cleaning.

White House invests in 5G Internet

Over the next few years, the amount of mobile devices connected to the Internet will increase significantly, which, coupled with the rapid development of multimedia services, will soon require much higher network bandwidth. The White House goes out to meet these needs and announces an investment in the 5G Internet.

Obama Administration has announced a new project called the Advanced Wireless Research Initiative, managed by the National Science Foundation (NSF), and has a budget of $ 400 million. This money is to be spent on the development of the new 5G mobile internet standard, which will be about 100 times faster than the current 4G technology. The project also envisages the creation of four test platforms spanning entire cities that will emerge over the next decade.

Over the next five years, NSF will donate $ 50 million to private sector companies that will build a new platform starting in 2017. In addition, over the next seven years, $ 350 million will fund research into 5G technology, from the conceptual phase to the real-world testing.

$ 6 million has already been donated to Intel to create a super fast network that will deliver data in less than a millisecond. Another

Drones in water sports

Freefly Systems invented a brand new Dronesurfing sport that will appeal to water sports enthusiasts. This is a modification of kitesurfing with the difference that instead of a small kite, the athlete is drawn by the drones.

For a constantly growing list of modern dron applications, you can add more. It is Dronesurfing, a new kind of water sport invented by Freefly Systems. Sport is very similar to typical kitesurfing, but it differs in the way of the drive. Instead of a small kite flying to the wind, which is usually an athlete, we have a mighty dron equipped with eight rotors.

The machine called the Freefly ALTA 8 shoulder span of up to 1325 mm, is equipped with eight Freefly F45 motors. Each has a continuous power of 350 W and a maximum of 950 W and accelerates to 6300 RPM. The propellers were made of lightweight carbon fiber reinforced balsam to withstand such high revolutions. The dron is powered by a battery pack connected in parallel.

Dron was not specially modified to pull people, but as provided by Freefly Systems, a single battery charge can pull a person about 3-4 times, with each tow lasting about 30 seconds.

The American police will get armed drones

A few weeks ago a sensation triggered a movie thrown into the net, where you can see how the armed dron shot at the target. It was a freak of a lone enthusiast, however, the idea of ​​unmanned equipment armed was soon picked up by the American police, which will soon receive such equipment for equipment.

At first, armed drones will be available to North Dakota policemen as the mayor of this state has just introduced a new amendment to the law that allows the use of such machines.

For now it will not be a lethal weapon, of course, so we will not see flying equipment equipped with rifle bullets, pistols and grenade launchers. Officials will, however, be able to install unmanned guns, rubber bullets, pepper spray, tasers, and sound guns, and then use such machines during the action.

A new way of taking care of firearms

The firearms have to do with the fact that it needs constant maintenance to be effective. During the war, this should be done even every day, as it can be life or death. However, scientists from the military laboratories have devised a new substance that will make it easier to take care of the weapon and make it much less time consuming.

Specialists from ARDEC (US Army Research, Development, and Engineering Center), the military research center of Picatinny Arsenal in New Jersey, have developed solid lubricant (DSL) for the maintenance of handguns, which will replace the previously used liquid substances.

Every weapon requires constant cleaning and although the currently used armament has been seriously upgraded for years, there is still a need for routine cleaning and cleaning.

This is essential because the weapon is equipped with a lot of moving parts that have to work without any problems, and lubrication ensures that they work without any jams. Meanwhile, after each shot, the barrel is filled with hot corrosive gas, leaving a thin layer of carbon residue and, if not regularly removed, builds up, resulting in jamming. Worse, guns often get dirt and sand that can also cause problems.

For most types of weapons, CLP is used, a liquid substance that cleans, lubricates and protects against corrosion. Unfortunately, cleaning removes the CLP, which must be constantly applied.

The problem of cleaning up arms has increased since 2001, when US and Allied forces began a global fight against terrorism. Weapons designed for action in Europe did not do well in the Middle East, where the sand was jammed causing it to jam.

Specialists from ARDEC were therefore commissioned to develop a new lubrication method for small and medium-sized weapons. Engineers have come up with a rather interesting problem, because instead of applying the DSL directly to the weapon, it covered the components already at the production stage. As a result, lower friction has been achieved which allows the mechanisms to work much more freely, in addition to higher abrasion resistance and better corrosion protection.
