Let's start by saying 2011 is going to be the year we wanted three years ago when the financial institutions "borrowed" our global wellbeing!¬† It was the first time we entered unfamiliar territory because the financial meltdown didn't affect just one country but all of us.
CES was a great experience for me this year, being the first opportunity I've had in over 3 years to go because of my deployment to Iraq. The energy of the show felt entirely upbeat and positive, full of optimism for this New Year and the new technologies that will literally dominate our lives. With such an abundance of amazing technological innovation happening all around us, I find it hard to believe that anyone can not be absolutely thrilled about the direction we are moving! So with that, I'd like to present a few of the technologies that I feel are going to be major influencers around our homes this year.
It's not uncommon for a new subwoofer owner to have problems getting the subwoofer to produce audible output. More often than not, it's usually a matter of choosing the right menu items in the AV receiver, but there are some simple tests you can make to ensure that the subwoofer itself is activating properly and producing output.
We're frequently (OK, sometimes) asked "Is it better to push cool air into a cabinet or pull the hot air out?" Other FAQ's ask whether all (there's usually more than one) fans should push or pull, or should you use half for each function. There are a few fundamentals to remember when you're planning to ventilate a cabinet, closet, video projector enclosure, etc.
Although the Blu-ray disc specification has been¬† finalized,¬† engineers continue to work on advancing the technology.¬† Quad-layer or 100 GB discs have been demonstrated on a drive with modified optics. Hitachi Corporation has stated that such a disc could be used to store up to 7 hours of 32 MB's video (HDTV)¬† or 3 hours and 30 minutes of 64MB video ¬†also referred to as 4K. In August of 2006,¬† TDK announced that they have created a working experimental Blu-ray Disc capable of holding 200 GB of data on a single side,¬† using six 33 GB data layers.
Even though a few companies have sold 10M +/- tablets and phones in the US and are slowly, painfully rolling them out in other wealthy consumer markets (Japan, North America, Europe), that's only a drop in the proverbial consumer population bucket. ¬† There's are 300 million potential consumers in the US and a whopping six billion plus around the globe. ¬† Today, the Gross Domestic Product (GDP) growth in the wealthy countries is modest (at best), and the outlook for the next 10 years isn't overly aggressive. ¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬† ¬†¬†¬† The "buy low, sell high" approach - buying components, manufacturing "somewhere" at the lowest possible price and selling them for optimum profit to folks in the wealthy areas is becoming more challenging. ¬† That's why businesses are becoming more serious about reaching, influencing emerging economy consumers. "There must be alternatives. You must have some technology that could solve our problem." - Professor Barnhardt, The Day the Earth Stood Still, 2008
Think about it‚Ä¶Dennis Hopper, Peter Fonda, you hittin' the road on rad bikes.¬† How freakin cool!¬† How free!! How far to the next electrical outlet because your notebook, tablet, smartphone, iPod batteries are in the red zone? Some say it was Jobs that put you on the road to adventure.¬† First, the iPhone that did everything but make a call.¬† Then, the iPad that does even more of everything, still doesn't make a call.¬† "Oh, yeah, they're gonna talk to you, and talk to you, and talk to you about individual freedom. But they see a free individual, it's gonna scare 'em." - George Hanson (Jack Nicholson) - Easy Rider (1969), Columbia Pictures
New Consumer, New Tools Equals New Normal You should really be excited. The government - no matter what country you live in - recently reported that the last few unsteady years are behind us and things are better and getting better. That's government speak. Actually, the downturn lasted so long it changed the consumer landscape, so the next few years deserve their own name..the new normal. Jason explained, "Then do something about it. Everything you need is in there." We're frugal in areas we never thought twice about before. "This is Jason Bourne. You are nine hours behind the toughest target you have ever tracked. Now I want everyone to sit down, strap in, and turn on all you've got. That would mean now." - Pamela Landy (Joan Allen), The Bourn Ultimatum (2007), United Pictures
