    5 Things to Try When Your Internet is Slow

    If you’re like most people today, you use the Internet for both work and play. You may run an online business, trade in foreign exchange from your phone or play games to relieve stress. Whatever you do, it can be very frustrating when your Internet slows down. However, there are some simple things you can do to troubleshoot the problem. Let’s look at five of them. 1. Conduct a Series of Speed Tests If your connection has gotten consistently slow, you need to begin conducting speed tests. You should do them at different points throughout and day and on different days of the week to see if any patterns develop. Doing this allows you to have a record of the actual speeds you’re getting. To ensure you get the most accurate results, there are a few things you should do first. You need to: Restart your router, modem, and computer before you do the speed check Close any browsers and apps using the Internet and don’t use the connection for anything else besides testing Clear your browser’s cache before each subsequent test Remember your speeds may be limited by the quality of your router, your choice of internet service provider, the type of internet connection you have, and the capabilities of your computer. A consistently slow connection may mean you need to upgrade either your device or your plan. 2. Change the Location of Your Router and/or Computer This is a simple solution that often work. Move your computer or mobile device closer to the router to see if Wi-Fi speeds increase. If your router is older or its signal is weak, you may not pick up the signal on another floor or several rooms away. If bringing the equipment closer works but you can’t permanently relocate, upgrading your router...

    An Introduction To FPGA Boards

    Have you ever seen the inside of an electric circuit board? There are so many blocks and interconnected circuits that you will have a hard time understanding which circuit is connecting which point. One of the main components of this electric circuit is the FPGA board or the Field Programmable Gate Array board. It is a special device that is widely used in the electric circuits and they help to create the logical blocks and the interconnection among other circuits. FPGAs are basically semiconductor devices that can be programmed according to the function that is required in the circuit. Previously, ASIC or Application Specific Integrated Circuits were used instead of FPGA. They were manufactured for a particular task and they could not be reprogrammed. However, with the introduction of FPGA boards, ASIC slowly started to lose its ground. This is because FPGA provided the facility to program and reprogram according to the purpose that the circuit was designed for. The complex structure of an FPGA board can be a bit difficult to understand. The array of gates are rather complex in nature and most of the FPGA boards have in-built hard blocks like PCIe Endpoints, high-speed communication interfaces, and memory controllers. One of the reasons why this kind of board managed to make a mark in the electric circuit is that many of the gates that are used in the FPGA board are arbitrarily connected so that they can make a circuit that is tailor-made for you. If you have managed to connect individual logical gates previously, you will understand how easy the working of an FPGA is. Many programmers have said that FPGAs have a similar structure as CPLDs or Complex Programmable Logic Devices but their only difference is in the size. FPGAs are much bigger and are more...
  • There’s a reason why living in cities is highly preferred by a lot of people. Better opportunities, higher chance of employment, a comfortable lifestyle, and many more. With the recent advancement in technologies, cities become more efficient as they have the task of keeping up with the increase in population. That’s also why smart cities will come soon because of the norm in major metropolitan areas. Here’s how smart cities and IoT will change our communities. For starters, the smart city is a city that utilizes technology, specifically IoT devices, such as intelligent construction cones, connected sensors, and lights to gather and analyze primary data. These data are used to improve public utilities, infrastructure, and many more. Better Architecture and Infrastructure  Project managers and construction experts all over the world are always in search of ways on how to utilize IoT devices and solutions into infrastructures with hopes that it would improve the overall quality of the building while reducing costs at the same time. According to surveys, almost 60% of building managers in the US are familiar with IoT, and the rest of them believe that IoT is capable of shaping how they operate their buildings in the following years. One of the few areas with massive potential for improvement is lighting. With IoT technology, building managers could make a switch to using LED bulbs as a way of saving energy and money. There are also elevators embedded with IoT that promotes greater efficiency. Though, the most remarkable implementation of smart architecture would be the smart grids that help in resource conservation. Another country that has been experimenting with what IoT has to offer would be Amsterdam. Basically, it has been working on ways on how energy storage units can be used, together with solar panels for a household...
  • While online video services and original series go hand and hand on the internet these days there are still differences in the way online services are handled by different services. To start out with is release schedules are different depending on the service you are using to start with networks like HBO, CBS, FX and others with a channel release shows on a weekly schedule since they air the shows on the network then offer them on demand afterward online. Service like Netflix, Hulu, YouTube, and Amazon Prime that offer online original content with no network have options for how they can release content. Netflix chooses to release all content at once so people can watch all episodes at their leisure or watch the entire series all at once. Netflix is the service that coined the term binge watching. Amazon Prime tapes pilots of shows then release them for free to everyone to vote on. Then the series that win the voting get released exclusively on Amazon Prime and Amazon Prime Video. Amazon has a little advantage here while many people get the service because they have prime some 7 million people subscribe just for the video streaming service itself. YouTube does a similar thing like Amazon Prime they release the entire series all at once but only the first episode is free on YouTube the rest of the series is available only if you subscribe to YouTube Premium (YouTube Red). YouTube has a little advantage over other services since YouTube Premium offers music, commercial-free YouTube viewing and better YouTube viewing experience on mobile. Users who subscribe to YouTube Premium get more than just series which is a large reason why they are getting lots of new YouTube Premium subscribers. Hulu is kind of doing its own thing releasing originals...

    Pocketcast App Review

    I have been playing around with Pocketcast for about a month and I have to say I like it way more than most other podcast apps I have used over the years. To start with I would like to mention that Pocketcast whilejust suffering a major outage this past week was great with their response and kept all their users up to date about the outage. There is something to be said about a company that handles an outage well and keeps users informed every stepof the way. All that aside I really like the way Pocketcast handles their app on iOS to start with its one of the very few podcast apps that Chromecast which is huge for me since I have a Chromecast in every room. I really like how you can stream podcasts rather than download to listen. I really enjoy how Pocketcast allows you to subscribe to podcasts without havingto download them by default like Apple. Pocketcast, since it’s not designed by Apple or Google, works on all platforms including a downloadable app for MacOS and Windows 10. This feature is really nice because no matter what operating system platform you are on you can get all your podcasts since you make an account for Pocketcast when you subscribe. The other great thing is the web-based platform forPocketcast which works out really niceley when you are on Windows 7, Windows 8 or ChromeOS where there is not app support.  This really makes the app available pretty much everywhere and allows you to again save all the podcasts you like to one place. The main page layout is great as you can see and is easy and smooth to operate and allows you to organize all podcast artwork into whatever order you want them in which is very...
