The future of Technology

As smart phones, tablets, typically Wi-Fi and 3G/4G supported devices are currently ruling the world and the prediction that Windows and www will vanish in the coming years, I just wanted to question the prediction/situation with my current knowledge. A part of today's article is also from the information acquired from the TED talk "How to prepare for the future of the Internet".

With Apple introduing the iPhone and iPad, computers/laptops/PCs are losing their demand (or so it is said). It is unclear whether the commercial demand is considering the vast areas of technology cannot go without desktops/laptops mainly because the tablets/smart phones cannot compete the performance that a desktop, that can be optimized to our needs: with Tera bytes of storage (so that no unknown cloud space need to be trusted with information), 16GB(or higher) RAM etc. Such huge specs are very much necessary for higher education, academic and industrial research.

The future of Technology, I see is the co-existence of Tablet world and PC world, that satisfies mobility needs and performance needs respectively. Therefore, I feel(a personal opinion) it may be not be right to predict the extinction of www or Windows in the future.

Becoming an effective Blogger

Well, first thought to your mind may be, how in the world, do I have the right to talk about Blogging with my Blogspot hardly even filled. This post is from a person, who wanted to blog ever since 2007, but the lack of information, ideas and ofcourse fear of not being noticed prevailed. What's the difference now? I don't give a damn about all that, I consider Blogging like writing a diary, a public one (so ofcourse details restricted) which may be useful for atleast one person sometime.

Here I go, long back when I wanted to be a Blogger, I created this account but downside is what I already mentioned. Three years went without many posts. When I came to Graduate School, I got introduced to Twitter, I thank my stars for this site. I was able to start small, with some tweets a few days, no tweets the other days but atleast I got rid of my fears.

Now a sudden realization that Twitter has word limit and I want to spread more information and thus this sudden attempt to restart blogging with posts of whatever I find relevant. (Thus, a small introduction to this Blog, an attempt to spread small interesting information, tips etc that may be useful.)

Therefore, if you are a person like me, who wants to blog but doesn't know where to start, start tweeting. You will find your information epicenter!! :D

Why a programs goes "Not Responding" in Windows?

Have you seen that sometimes one of yours many programs starts "Not Responding": Such a scenario can happen many times, some examples I know of are:
1. When shockwave flash in Google Chrome stops working
2. When you load too many programs.

What generally happens when you load a Program is, you try to bring its content from RAM(Random Access Memory)/ROM (Read-only Memory) to your cache, so that it will easily loadable or re-loadable.

When you load a program to your cache, you are trying to change a virtual physical address that you obtained from the RAM/ROM to a physical address of the cache. Now the programs that are already existing in your desktop have taken the physical address of the cache, when the newly loaded program tries to replace the physical address of the already existing program, a conflict occurs, so there is a temporary pause in the progress of the program (the state of "Not Responding") which is soon recovered by the processor and you get back your working program.

Note: Information piece of information I gathered, any queries/feedback are appreciated.
