  • If done right, vintage decor can work well in a modern home. By blending vintage and contemporary styles can make your home look more sophisticated and provide a charming atmosphere. It is a good idea to always have one dominant style with only an accent of the other. A modern interior design can be delightfully enhanced by a touch of vintage here and there. What to buy Big furniture piece like couches and armchairs gets worn down a lot over time, therefore finding a vintage sofa for example which is still in good shape might be challenging to find. By sticking to a contemporary piece, you can solve this problem. Old side tables and coffee tables, on the other hand, looks decent most of the time, no matter the age. Also, dresser and vintage consoles can look very classy when used as a centrepiece in any room. Most vintage wood pieces are excellent quality, wood that looks worn down might add to the vintage look that you were wanting. However, a new varnish will help it fit in with the rest of the modern room without losing that vintage sophistication. For a further blend in of old wooden piece, the simple trick is to paint it the same color as the wall. Smaller vintage items that will add to the charm are chandeliers, vintage mirrors, lamp shades, throw pillows, rocking chairs, old vases, warn down frames, old photos, eccentric art and so on, the possibilities are endless. How to get it right Fortunately and unfortunately (for the less creative), there are no rules when it comes to mixing vintage and modern furniture. It depends on what goes well together and what effect you want to gain. If you have a good feel for what works well together, then a scavage...
  • The craze of online games is very high in this technologically advanced world, but one of the biggest problems which are faced at the time of playing online games is lag. Why do you think it happens? In this regard, we first need to understand latency. Latency gets calculated by ping times.  It means the time which is needed by the player for sending a signal to the game server and then for the game server in sending a reply back. Time differs because of many factors.  The important factor is geographical location of both servers. The world of internet is actually network made up which is formed of millions of system and each one of them serves like a node, capable of receiving and passing data. More the distance between servers more will be the nodes which one needs to travel.  It means higher ping time will lead to higher latency.  This happens because of the way a game engine works.  In short, lag is the sum of ping time and the system speed. How to solve this problem? Well you need to reduce the ping times and ensure the system you are using is running fast. Here are some Tips when playing online games. Go for a wired connection A wired connection is something which gives the guarantee that it will act faster than a wireless one, even in the case when a player is using new Wireless-AC standard.  We all know Wi-Fi is leads to huge interference. To stay away from uncertainties plugging it in is something which always helps. All programs to be closed which are connected to the internet The Internet bandwidth acts as a finite resource.  In case you are trying to run multiple programs at one time which needs Internet access for sure,...

    My Top 5 Podcasts of 2017

    For me, podcasts have completely replaced talk radio for the most part and I like talk radio. I have been reviewing my Top Podcasts on this site every year for a few years I like to see how my interests change from year to year. CRTV CRTV (Conservative Review) TV is a free podcast stream of all the shows on CRTV. I enjoy LevinTV, Get off My Lawn and Louder with Crowder. All these podcasts and more (about dozen shows most are daily) are free audio but I subscribe because the subscription gets you the video element which is not free and a free coffee mug. First Ring Daily First Ring Daily would probably be my pick for the number two podcast. Paul Thurrott and Brad Sams do a great job reporting the tech news of the day. First Ring Daily this year went from being a premium paid show every day to being free every day. Paul and Brad have both said they don’t consider the show a premium product. Thurrott.com reporting is still premium but not the daily podcast. If you are looking for the best tech news reporting this is a great site. Red Bar Radio Red Bar Radio is a weekly podcast I like and watch when it has an episode topic I am interested in hearing about on that day. Mike does a weekly two-hour free show then premium paid additional 2-4 hours. I don’t subscribe and I don’t listen every week but when a topic or subject about an entertainer or celebrity comes up I will watch the free show. This Week in Google I do not listen too many of the TWIT.TV shows but I have been listening to TWIG. Jeff Jarvis and Leo Leport do a great job of reporting all the...

    GLOW On Another Streaming Service?

    GLOW (Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling) is Netflix’s new hit series starring Alison Brie and Betty Gilpin. The show centers around an out of work actress Ruth played by Alison Brie living in Los Angeles in the ’80s. Betty Gilpin plays Debbie an out of work soap actress. Debbie and Ruth are ex-friends forced to work together to headline a wrestling show with 10 other women and a washed-up director of “B” movies who tries to lead a group of women to fame. The series debuted all 10 episodes on June 23, 2017, on Netflix and was renewed for a second season on August 10, 2017, via Twitter. GLOW is definitely a hit Netflix Original Series. The question many people have asked would GLOW have done better on another streaming service. I think the logical choice for me personally for a show like this would have been WWE Network. If your subscribing to the WWE Network your obviously a wrestling fan which fits this shows premise. Hulu was a possible choice since Hulu does host past episodes of WWE Raw, Smackdown and NXT. I think the issue with Hulu is they are still stuck in the old way of thinking releasing one episode a week. When you watch GLOW, it had a very Netflix binge watch feeling to it with the ending of each episode not having a huge cliffhanger like a typical weekly show does on Hulu. The one network I think that could have possibly had this series was HBO. Due to some of the adult topics and content in the GLOW series I could not see Hulu (owned by Disney) picking up this series. HBO even with their style of releasing an episode a week has an audience that I think has the proper demographic on that Sunday 9 o’clock...

    Big Data Is Changing IoT in The Future

    Tens of millions of individuals that are connected to trillions of devices at all times. This level of connectivity is one way that provides an unprecedented standard of access to information in not only business but also personal lives. As more people have access to connected devices, they also gain a new level of knowledge to various tools and options to increase their efficiency and input into society. More devices means more data, and the only way to make this increased amount of data is to have a new way to view and interpret that data. Future analytics and also the programs which support extensive data are continuously evolving, being formed by the necessity to provide information faster to customers and obtain practical insights across the organization. Big data is only getting bigger, and with all the viewpoints and ways that big data can be used in business operations, it can be difficult to obtain a bird’s-eye view of the many trends affecting the landscape. Following is a roundup some of the trends in hypotheses and data on how they may grow in the future. IoT Technology Depends On Big Data As individuals move more of their own lives on the internet, their apparatus migrate with them. IoT technology is the expression used to refer to the gigantic technological network–that includes anything from medical enhancements and weather detectors to autonomous vehicles driving around our city streets and even electricity grids–and the infinite streams of information that they collect and exchange while attached to the internet. This churn of data will require improvements in analytics to be processed, and businesses must take care of challenges which IoT presents to safety and information governance.Without adequate approaches and systems to translate and direct the information that’s collected, there’ll be no way to generate...
