Bluetooth Benefits

10 Benefits Of Bluetooth

  Below, are 10 benefits and reasons to use Bluetooth technology.

 1.  Wireless

As you probably already know, there are many benefits and advantages to using wireless devices.  Along with improving safety as a result of eliminating wires you don't need, wireless also offers you plenty of other advantages.  When traveling with your laptop or other wireless devices, you'll no longer have to worry about bringing connection cables.

2.  Bluetooth is actually inexpensive

The technology of Bluetooth is cheap for companies to implement, which results in lower costs for the company.  These savings are then passed from the company on to you.

3.  Bluetooth is automatic

Bluetooth doesn't have you set up a connection or push any buttons.  When two or more devices enter a range of up to 30 feet of each other, they will automatically begin to communicate without you having to do anything. 

 4.  Standardized protocol

 Bluetooth is standardized wireless, meaning that a high level of compatibility among devices is guaranteed.  Bluetooth will connect devices to each other, even if they aren't the same model.

 5.  Low interference

 Bluetooth devices almost always avoid interference from other wireless devices.  Bluetooth uses a technique known as frequency hopping, and als low power wireless signals.

 6.  Low energy consumption

As a result of Bluetooth using low power signals, the technology requires very little energy and will use less battery or electrical power as a result.This is an excellent benefit for mobile devices as Bluetooth won't drain the battery 

7.  Sharing voice and data

The standard for Bluetooth will allow compatible devices to share data and voice communications. This is great for mobile phones and headsets, a Bluetooth simplifies driving and talking on your cell phone.

8.  Instant PAN (Personal Area Network)

You can connect up to seven Bluetooth devices to each other within a range of up to 30 feet, forming a piconet or PAN.  For a single room, you can also set up multiple piconets.

9.  Upgradeable

Upgradeable is the standard for Bluetooth.  There are newer versions of Bluetooth in the works, which offer many new advantages and backward compatible with older versions.

10.  The technology stays

Bluetooth technology is a world wide, universal wireless standard.  With it being as popular as it is, you can count on it being around for years to come.  As more and more devices start to use Bluetooth technology, more manufacturers will be eager to make their products compatible.  A chain reaction will occur, making Bluetooth the standar for cutting edge wireless.

 

 

 

 


 

Advantages of Digital Cameras

 There are many advantages when comparing digital photography to traditional film cameras. These include:

 * Data can be stored on the image including date and time, type of camera, film speed and shutter speed (this is great for vacations); this assists in reviewing photos at a later date.

 * The use of a tripod is all but eliminated due to the anti-shake tools in digital cameras.

 * You can capture hundreds of photos for emailing and graphic uses without the need to print all of them and scan them into your computer.

 * You print only the pictures you want, so you can take a lot of pictures. And, by changing the settings slightly, you can take as many shots as you want choosing only the best quality to keep.

 * Storing photos on a computer is a lot cheaper than storing them on film, and they are much easier to access.

 * With a consumer-grade printer, you can communicate directly with your camera or its memory card and print your own pictures.

 * You can immediately view your pictures. If you don't like the picture, just take it over again!

 * Film cameras are much larger than digital cameras with equal quality.

 * Without the expense of developing film, you can experiment with the settings on a digital camera, allowing you to learn new techniques with no additional cost.

 * Film cameras require a change of film every 24 to 36 pictures, with digital photography you can store hundreds of images on the same media device.

 * Digital cameras can now be hooked up to your television, allowing you to review your photos with an audience.

 * You have a home colour darkroom for editing your pictures without the expense of a darkroom and its many chemicals.

 * No more scanning of photos to view them on your computer.

 * You don't have to pay the high cost of film processing and store many, many rolls of film and photographs.

Advantages of Digital Photography to the Professional

 The professional photographer and the amateur photographer can find many advantages to digital photography. These include, but are not limited to:

 * Without wasting storage space, the professional photographer can review, edit, and even remove a photo, while assessing composition and lighting.

 * The versatility of management, including colour and file, manipulation, and printing abilities, creates a much faster workflow than film cameras.

 * It is much easier to modify and manipulate digital images than it is to modify negatives and prints.

 * Special effects that are available on a digital camera can give much more dramatic results than film cameras.

 * With the clear images provided by new digital cameras, tripods are a thing of the past in most instances. This is due to the anti-shake tools now available.

 * Hundreds of images can be stored on your computer with a minimum of space allowing easy access for editing. It is much less expensive to store data on a computer than on rolls of film and negatives. In addition, the professional can take time to view them, saving only the best for use.

 * Digital cameras are much more compact, allowing a freedom of movement when going on difficult shoots.

 * Reviewing images and techniques are much easier as data can be stored directly on the photo, including; camera type, date and time, film speed, flash used, and shutter speed.

  Advantages of Digital Photography

 The quality of the images on the new digital cameras, and the time limits that are so vitally important in the newspaper industry, have made digital photography the norm with most professional news photographers.

 Many amateur photographers have also adopted the digital camera as their camera of choice. They enjoy the convenience of sending photos by email, being able to put them on the web, and displaying them in digital picture frames.  Many cell phones now have digital cameras included in them, even though the small lens size of these phones reduces the quality of the pictures, making them unsuitable for making prints.

 The quality of pictures taken on even the best digital cameras is not considered to be anywhere near the quality of regular film. Therefore, many commercial photographers and even some artistic amateurs resist using digital technology for their photography purposes.

 Film also has a much greater resolution than even the best of digital projectors. Other professionals have embraced with enthusiasm the digital cameras, believing that the lower long-term costs in flexibility outweigh the initial high costs.

 Unlike film photography, which requires constant expenditures to update and maintain equipment, nearly all expense in digital photography is the initial cost of the equipment.  However, film equipment lasts longer and doesn't become obsolete as quickly as digital cameras

Many professionals have changed to digital photography because of the advantages of editing on a computer. This includes the ability to balance the colour and manipulate images in a way that are not possible with conventional film photography.

A further disadvantage to digital photography is the need to have electrical outlets to charge batteries on digital cameras. Digital cameras are also much more sensitive to climate, extreme cold, and moisture than standard cameras, which cause photographers who work in remote areas to prefer the more conventional film camera.

Some fear that the changing technology of computers will eventually make the digital photography taken today inaccessible in the future. Digital photography in the courts is also held to be very questionable because of the inability to prove the photograph's authenticity.

 Choosing the Best Digital Camera

 Today's digital cameras have gone way beyond just point and shoot. They come with dozens of features, meaning you can customize your camera to your specific needs.

Some of the things you will want to look into when purchasing your camera are confusing, so make sure you know what you are looking for when you go shopping.

 The quality of the resolution of your photos is determined by the mega pixels (mps) of your camera. Tiny dots called pixels make up your digital photos; a mega pixel means 1,000 pixels, or 1,000 dots.

 The higher the number of pixels your camera has, the better the resolution of your photos. If you want to crop your pictures or plan on printing larger prints, you need to be sure you purchase a camera that can meet those needs. 

 Optical or digital zooms are available on digital cameras. Optical zoom is like the one on a traditional camera and works the same way -- it goes out, bringing you closer, or in, to take you further away from the subject.  A digital zoom takes the picture as it is and enlarges it; this can lose image quality because it is simply enlarging the pixels (dots) of the picture. Pictures may seem blurry or out of focus.

 Preserving the image quality can be as simple as turning off the digital zoom feature on your camera.  Later, during editing, you can zoom in on a specific part of the photo with much better results.

 A manual focus can be a great deal of fun, allowing you to focus in and make different parts of the photo stand out.  This allows for a lot of creativity in

your work. And most cameras still have an auto focus, so you can go back to the basics if your are not feeling extremely creative.

 

Comparing Film and Digital Cameras

 Digital cameras have many advantages over traditional cameras. Some of these advantages are:

 * After instantly reviewing the picture, it can be retaken if there is a problem. The photographer simply changes a few settings.

 * Taking many shots of the same thing using different settings and angles can be done inexpensively, and you print only the best ones. This is too expensive to accomplish with film cameras.

 * Those who want to take hundreds of photos for various uses without printing them can do this at minimal cost.

 * Storing large quantities of digital media on the newer computers is much cheaper than film.

 * No degradation occurs when copying images from one medium to another.

 * You can view pictures on your computer without having to scan them first.

 * With a consumer-grade printer and a computer, you can print your own photos.

 * Film cameras of equal quality are often much larger than digital cameras.

 * While it is necessary to change film after 24 to 36 shots, you can store hundreds of images on the same card in a digital camera.

 * With many of the new cameras, you can view your photos on the television with an AV-out function that is included.

 * It is easy and inexpensive to experiment with the settings on a digital camera. With a film camera, you could use up many rolls of film trying to learn to use it.

 * Some printers can communicate directly with your camera, or its memory card; you don't need a computer to print your pictures.

 * Digital cameras make it easy to add information to your pictures, such as time and date.

 * Sharper images are now possible with digitals due to the anti-shake tools, making tripods nearly obsolete.

 * A color darkroom is as close as your computer, and you can now avoid the very expensive photo labs.

 Compromises Made by Your Digital Camera

 The means your camera uses to take images and translate them from the image sensor to the computer or printer may not be hindered by the compromises it makes during the process.  You will only know this when the photos are being viewed at the time of transfer.

 Storage is one of these compromises; digital images take a great deal of space for storage. They need to be managed in a way that ensures enough images can be stored before they need to be downloaded from the camera.

 Cameras use different levels of compression to downsize the images for storing them in memory. JPEG is the most widely used standard, it removes information that can't be seen by the human eye anyway. The higher the level of compression, the more information is deleted.

 At the higher compression setting, blocks start to appear in the images. This begins to degrade the image quality, making the resulting file size extremely small.  If quality is the most important consideration, avoid JPEG compression. 

 The mid- to high-end digital cameras offer different forms of compression, which don't delete any information, by using mathematical algorithms. They compress the file and save it either in TIFF format or as RAW files, which contain only the information the sensor captured with no in camera processing.

 Larger file sizes are the result of this loss less file compression format. However, the higher image quality and post processing flexibility makes up for the loss in image storage space.

 Another compromise made in digital cameras is the in-camera processing; these create predefined results. Some cameras have sharpening filters which restore the contrast that is lost in edge details when the image goes through the various optical filters.

 This process of sharpening in the camera reduces the ability to sharpen the image once it has been downloaded to the computer. Over sharpening can create unnatural and harsh edges and may even cause shifts in colour.

 

The Perils Of Perfectionism

The Perils of Perfectionism

Finding work/life balance in today’s busy and highly competitive world could never be described as easy.  For most perfectionists, however, it is downright impossible.

Although many people tend to think of being a perfectionist as a positive thing, true perfectionism is, in many ways, extremely counterproductive.  Not only does the need to attend to every last little detail waste unnecessary time and lead to tasks and projects taking much longer than they need to, but it typically means that perfectionists end up allowing work to eat into their own personal leisure time.  Perhaps worse still, even once the job is finally handed over, the perfectionist still never feels that he or she has completed it well enough and so is left with intense feelings of frustration and low self-esteem.

Striving for excellence is something that can only benefit ourselves and our employers, but there is a world of difference between this and trying to achieve the impossible.  As human beings, we are not built to be perfect; trying to achieve perfection is a certain road to unhappiness.  By all means give everything your best shot, but know when to stop because your best really is good enough!
