The Microsoft Xbox One S - 40% Smaller

EntertainmentSo here, with a 40 percent smaller footprint than the 2013 Microsoft Xbox, is the Xbox One S - ‘the smallest Xbox yet’. Already, that headline statement should furrow your brow; because between the lines, what Microsoft is mostly shouting about is the new Xbox’s form; whilst they’re merely whispering about its added functionality.

Probably the biggest hardware upgrade is the 4K Blu-Ray player and support for 4K playback, as streaming services such as Netflix and Amazon are increasingly offering UHD content. No, you cannot play processor-hungry 4K games. The power supply unit is now integrated, and there’s a new wireless controller with textured grips, improved range and Bluetooth; and for those with spatially-challenged living rooms, thanks to its reduced size the console can now be made to stand vertically too. That’s for you, single person.

The Truth about Intel Processors

TechnologySome people try to get the latest technology in the house as fast as companies can introduce them. Me, I like to recycle trusty electronics to the things they deserve. One of my latest still doing strong and running cool is an Asus P5K mainboard powered by an Intel E4300 Core2Dual processor. With an official processor speed of 1.8 GHz, but in fact running at a of clocked frequency of 3 Ghz, from the time I bought it.

Intel try to tell us and most people who run test mainboard and your latest processors websites, will tell that the Intel E4300 with its 65-micron design is a power hungry monster… the fact is that running my little server with no graphical interface and just a web interface is using 70% less power than the average latest mainboards with integrated graphics…

The Mobile Phone and It's Camera

TechnologyOver the years the mobile phone didn't change much, most to the changes involve just the camera – it changed photography in general. Since you can take decent pictures with a mobile phone, pictures are no longer stuffed into photo albums; they are shared online at a amazing rate of over 500 million photo shots per day.

And there are now more than 8 billion smartphone owners in the world, most of them snapping pictures away with increasingly powerful smart camera phones.

How powerful? I have seen mobile phones with 41-megapixel sensor that re-creates more detail than some dedicated best selling point-and-shot digital cameras.

The Ferdinand Berthoud FB1 Chronometer

TechnologyThe name of Ferdinand Berthoud has not appeared on the dial of a timepiece since the late 19th century, but it has now been revived by Chopard on a small series of ultra high-end chronometers costing €220,000 (around 8.7 million THB) apiece.

Bertoud was born in 1727 and became a highly celebrated clockmaker who, at the age of 47, was appointed horologist mechanic to King George III and the British Navy. In recognition of his, the new FB1's hand-wound movement features a beautifully engineered fusee-chain regulating system – an arrangement that offsets the diminishing force of the mainspring as it unwinds and which was once popular in marine applications for its accuracy.

Stock Market Take Advantage of Knowledge

BusinessIf you take the advice of the man widely considered to be the most successful investor of the 20th century, then you’ll see that dogged, minute-by-minute attention to the stock ticker won’t guarantee you stock-market success. In fact, Warren Buffet says, ‘Lethargy bordering on sloth should remain the cornerstone of an investment style.’

For business owners with little time to spare, it takes a sensible approach to lock in stock gains. Remember that the stock ticker represents businesses – real companies with products to sell, customers to satisfy, workers who need to be paid, supplier to negotiate with, and budgets to meet. Think of stocks the way you, as a business owner, would think about your company. Invest in businesses you understand

The great fund manager Peter Lynch tells individual investors to invest only in businesses they understand. There are more than 200 listings in the stock market. You’ll need years, if not a lifetime, to know all the companies and make an intelligent assessment of each stock. Instead, focus on industries that you understand and are a part of. You day-to-day interaction with customers, competitors and suppliers provide valuable insights that will allow you to make intelligent and informed decisions about which stocks to own.
