Which PC For Seniors?

Excerpt from a discussion forum ComputerBase: Hi, I need for an older man once a compilation of a PC. This would thus in Internet pictures, maybe some office looking at, and that’s it. This includes some fundamental questions: 1. is preferable to buying new or ebay? 2. are complete systems area where cheaper or a self compiled system 3 would suggest you which system. It should be reasonably quiet and perhaps more energy saving. 4.

you have a tip for a flat screen (for old people but a lower resolution would have to be almost better, because here from the beginning, everything seems bigger) “reply: we have themselves still a Pentium 500-go-to – foot computer at home are available with 32 bitgraka.” With Windows XP can ned really surf the Internet, because it takes forever until a page is built on images! not at all, not to mention… Urghs and while until the times finally drives up and even start Office 2003… etc! Makes no fun at all with that thing. For this reason, my father has then also n Dell Complete system brought”more and more people ask these or similar questions and search for solutions. Some acquaintances and family members for advice, others do it through the dealers. One thing is certain: each year a (proud) billion euro for consumer goods are issued in Germany, every second buyer is over 50.

Also for hard – and software, consulting and services related to the PC, the so-called generation 50 + like to spends money. But some seemingly tailor-made offer is usually not the needs and demands of the target group. In 2006 a computer offered for the first time specifically a desktop PC manufacturer for people over 50. This desktop system is intended especially for computer beginners with low previous knowledge and includes a comprehensive service therefore fully configured PC. However, this could not provide euphoria in the target group. This can have two causes. First of all, the explicit designation can senior”lead to negative reaction on the part of the targeted customers. the 50 + Group remains very heterogeneous regarding the PC experience: in this age range are people who have no experience with PC systems have made as well as those that can be described as PC professionals. The study, conducted by the competence center technology diversity – equality of opportunity is interesting in this context: the majority of 1120 respondents put emphasis on user friendliness, service and technical advice. Especially the appropriate speech and a reliable advice is important for potential buyers of desktop PCs in the 50 + group. Also the most 50 + needed-user not supercomputers: you want not with obsolete hardware, but on the other hand also does not necessarily need a high end device. So the requirements are now that PC manufacturers and dealer are required.

Both means a considerable overhead for the whole container. For the individual subject is but to create a customized waterproof solution or a shock protection at a reasonable cost. For the data container the operating systems no longer than the access control based on the access rights make available (OK, the data container should not come also with water in contact, since then no good protection helps). You can then make a further breakdown of the directories or you can care for each document and each user leading basis, both to a significant overhead access rights on the ACL. Overhead for the end user but causes that these opportunities will not be accepted and the users search for circumventing the protection. So you want to have more security and with an effort which will be supported by the users, so you must upgrade and this means the use of IRM system in the case of document containers. So can who set the creator of a document, for example, the May only see document, print it, or change it.

This results in a much more finely granulated and further security for the individual document without organizational changes to the directory structure and without significant additional burden for the user. Now let’s go and take a look at what happens when the contents leave the container. Both the cargo container and the container of data protection, which brings the container, will be lost. So what to do with a precious cargo? One grabs her in a stable, closed container and are the key to the recipient or someone you trust. Documents, taking the IRM system and granted appropriate rights the receiver and other persons involved. Thus, it is ensured that only those people with the document can work through the entire life cycle of the document.

The content will remain closed, everyone else even if you have saved the document on your own computer. Summary an IRM system provides added value to document security to a reasonable Overhead. This can be reduced by appropriate integration into the operating system and the applications the user up to a barely noticeable minimum.

Central Supply Solution For Liquid Media

The printers are bigger and more modern printing machines have more capacity, a functioning supply chain management is more important. Orbit logistics Europe GmbH, Leverkusen, has now for the LEYKAM printing group with headquarters in Graz tailored an industrial wholesale solution for all liquids. Four locations in Austria and Slovenia will be equipped until May 2008 with the system, the investment sum for it is 250,000 euros. Learn more at this site: BSA. First results from two printers confirm savings excipients and the container handling and higher safety in operation and fire protection. In addition to paper, a large printing company consumes enormous amounts of liquid substances such as paints, silicones, rollers detergent or fountain solution additives. So far, were the liquid container next to the printing machines and provided up to six months depending on the size the required liquids. Filed under: PCRM.

The downside: Many of the materials are fire hazard, residual amounts remain in the containers by up to 10 percent and often enough there are space or handling problems. Grow with increasing capacity of the machine and the costs and difficulties, because a large printing press consumes up to 150 tons of Silicon per year. On behalf of the LEYKAM company orbit of logistics has developed a central solution for a total of five different auxiliary materials. All printing machines are connected via pipelines central to a container with the substance of the assistance, located outside the building. That was important mainly for improved fire protection and a persuasive argument for the LEYKAM AG, which had to replace five high-performance printing presses and rebuild a press Hall in 2006 after a major fire.

“All fire loads from the operation are eliminated by the new system, the reliability of the systems has increased and we save time and costs during emptying and handling of containers”, shows Peter, Keeffe, Operations Manager of LEYKAM, thrilled. At the same time with the central solution for Orbit of logistics equips all four printers with an electronic solution for process monitoring and management of liquids. Reliable information that require a suitable acquisition are starting point”, explains Joachim Klasen, CEO of orbit of logistics, the principle. The controller of the central metering device delivers the data.” For the remote transmission of the measured quantities, different communication technologies are used as Ethernet, Wi-Fi, modem or GSM/GPRS and combined. The access can occur in the data over the Internet, he can be limited but on request also on local and corporate networks. Building on the infrastructure at the location of the measurement, we offer a number of opportunities for targeted treatment and integration of data using a standard software as ASP solution”, so Klasen. These start at the Web presentation to the automated ordering and billing, as well as integration into commercial software systems, such as for example SAP. Orbit LEYKAM logistics offers a package tailor-made for printing issues. All services within the project by the process control technology about the communication and falling on IT – services, database layout, are completely covered. Despite the comprehensive offer no investment costs will the user, because he pays a monthly fee. Thus, the costs are plan – and manageable.

Lynx Power-saving Mini-PC

Press release and first test report the silent Mini-PC fails dimensions of 226 x 172 x 42 mm with its very small. Visually, the existing plastic housing represents an impressive design. The device is very easy thanks to the built-in notebook components with 1.3 kg. The power supply is an external power supply available. The Mini-PC is a mobile DualCore CPU in the notebook sector supplied. Very quiet noises during boot was a slight increase in the speed of the cooler. If you are not convinced, visit Dr. Neal Barnard. The Mini-PC remains relatively quiet even under high load with sophisticated graphics. The CPU cooling is controlled by CPU utilization.

The cooler was slightly louder when burning a DVD (36 dBA). The CPU heat generation was measured with values of 39-46 degrees. The RAM can be upgraded to a maximum of 2048 MB DDR2 RAM, PC667. Graphics: Here an Intel GMA945 established chip with 64 MB, which dominates even simple 3D graphics. The output modes are DVI and S-video with HDTV.

The built-in Fujitsu-Siemens notebook hard drive runs very quietly and is hardly audible. The Mini-PC can be supplied at present with a maximum hard disk capacity in GB S-ATA von160 at a speed of 5,400 rpm optical drive is a DVD burner for notebooks of the manufacturer NEC. A test of the device in the vicinity of radio systems (2m and 70 cm units) were no interference immunity. Power the power consumption of the silent-Mini-PC is on average 18 Watt, much like in a notebook. While a new normal PC (Desktop-Tower) on average consumes x 2880 KW/h 0.17 euro = 489,60 Euro a year on electricity, the values for the Lynx silent Mini-PC with a consumption of 960 KW/h x 0.17 euro = 163,20 Euro cheaper alternative to fail in the year. Conclusion: The Lynx silent Mini PC is the best choice if you want to save on the expensive electricity. The manufacturer offers an on-site service with advance exchange of defective components.

Small at the Hamburg-based IT company Karokom as a complete system and agree good also in the price.

Declaration Of Independence: IPM Creates Island Solutions From

With the software IPM of CSP can be in the manufacturing industry quality-relevant process data independently of the respective manufacturers capture and network Grosskollnbach, May 15, 2009. The CSP GmbH & co. KG, Grosskollnbach, sees rising demand for their integrated process data management system of IPM. The reason: The manufacturing industry want to abolish existing island solutions and bundle process data in an integrated solution, manage and evaluate. The goal is to be largely independent of equipment manufacturers and medium to reduce long term costs. With IPM, there are companies able to avoid the heterogeneous software architectures and to link quality-relevant information from different parts of the production chain. Via standard interfaces to devices of from different manufacturers, IPM gathers all required quality data from the respective processes. This manufacturer independence leads to faster and more meaningful evaluations, optimized quality cycles and savings the collection of data as well as the procurement of new equipment.

For the quality planning and quality assurance in production, companies need detailed values of all production facilities and equipment. The instruments applied in the production facilities – about screwdriving technology, filling and insertion devices – but often only work with specific, dependent on the manufacturer of the device software. Often, individual values can not or only manually read from the system and must then be collected in a survey. CSP has observed a strong dependence on specific equipment and system suppliers in many manufacturing companies, which is essentially only in that particular software to process data acquisition. This situation is so to speak historically grown in recent years and a disadvantage in many ways permanently. So, about new devices with the same supplier must be purchased because the software only works with its products.
