Buying a New Computer? Read This First

Ever had one of those days when you thought that you would spend a lot of time searching around for really good computer bargains?

I have had that experience many times and have found that I used to waste time doing endless and meaningless searches trying to find what I need. But then, I found a solution!

Figuring out what to search for is half the battle won, but how to figure out whether the prices being displayed were bargain prices was another issue. So how did I solve that problem?

Try and identify first what computer system you need to buy. This really can be a struggle if you are not familiar with computers. You can visit the nearest library to you and speak to a librarian to see whether they have issues of the Computer Shopper magazine. Not only Computer Shopper, but PC Novice and PC Magazine as well. I have found these to be quite useful and effective in helping me decide on the type of system I need.

PC Novice is especially useful because it explains in layman's language what I need to know and gives recommendations on the alternatives to look for. Terms such as motherboard and peripherals are usually explained in detail. You should not worry however if you are not familiar with these terms. Just understand that when you go to purchase your computer, you may find an enthusiastic sales rep asking you – “so how much ram do you need in this computer”; “you think you may need an Intel or AMD processor?”; or, “how many gigabytes do you need for your hard drive? --- Huh???

The magazines I have listed above will help you a great deal but don't get lost with all the geek talk. You will be able to find complete systems available that will be sold with software. Some systems will be sold with the box – the CPU portion, and the monitor. Depending on where you are buying your computer from, the monitor may be at an extra cost. Some systems will be sold with a printer and they will try and sell you a host of other things which are not really necessary.

My advice therefore is to first figure out what you want to do with the computer and do some research!

Shopping around is the next best thing you can do to find the best prices. I usually look at three to four different quotations to see which one matches my budget. Most computers today will do what you want to do. You do not need to get the most expensive system especially if you will only be surfing the Internet and checking email occasionally, so don't go overboard thinking that because you saw you neighbor with this expensive system you need to have one too.

Good luck and happy shopping!!

Buying A New Computer

Purchasing a home computer can be one of the most nerve-wracking experiences if you don’t do your homework first. Since most of us are non-technical, wading through all of the specifications and deciding what is right can be overwhelming.

While price is important, there are many other factors that should be considered when purchasing a computer. Doing research before entering your local office supply or computer store will help you from spending more than you wanted to and also get you the best deal on the quality that you need.

Spend some time thinking about how your computer will be used. Make a list of what needs that this computer will need to fill.

What software is an absolute necessity?

Will you need non-standard hardware like a scanner or fax in addition to your computer?

Are you more interested in word processing or gaming or both?

Thinking about what function your computer serves for all the members of your family will help you narrow down your choices.

After you’ve determined what function your computer serves in your life and the life of your family you will want to consider the speed of your new computer.

The Central Processing Unit or CPU is the brain of your computer. The CPU is the largest contributor to the overall speed of your computer. It controls all of the functions and capabilities that your computer will have.

The newest computers come with CPUs that range from 1.6 GHz to 3.2 GHz. If you are involved in graphics or want to play high-resolution computer games, you need the highest GHz that you can afford.

Another consideration is the memory or virtual storage space of your new computer. While computers are available with 128 MB of memory, you’ll want to have at least 256 MB on your machine. Memory is essential to achieving maximum speed and performance from your computer. It is recommended that you purchase your new computer with as much memory as you can get for the best price.

Memory upgrades can cost as little as $30, so if you need to build your system slowly over time it is certainly a viable option. You can always add more memory, but you can’t replace the CPU and increase your processing speed. If you have to choose between the two, go with a higher GHz processor and add more memory as you can.

The monitor can make a big difference in your enjoyment of your new computer. Although most people just accept whatever monitor comes with a computer package. However, it really does deserve more consideration.

Size is the most important factor. If you go any smaller than 17 inches, you may end up spending most of your time squinting and causing yourself unnecessary eyestrain. If you can upgrade your monitor to something larger, go for at least a 19-inch monitor.

Another option you may want to consider is getting a wireless mouse and keyboard. Going wireless with these necessary pieces of equipment will help to pare down the cords beneath your computer desk.

There are a ton of other options you need to consider when purchasing a new computer. It’s a good idea to ask people you know what types of options have worked well for them. Also, you do not need to purchase the very latest in computers. The best value is usually found with a computer that was brand new and the fastest thing going 6 months to one year ago. That is where you are likely to get the most bang for the buck. I hope this little guide has been helpful to you for buying your next computer.

Buying a Gaming Notebook

Buying a gaming notebook is a little different to buying a general purpose one. There are certain things that need to be looked at to ensure you get a notebook that will meet your gaming needs. Be warned gaming laptops can be rather pricy and is not for those that are budget conscious.

The most obvious consideration when buying a gaming notebook would of course be the quality of the video card. General purpose notebooks have minimal graphics processing power and therefore cannot cater to most modern games. The video card will need to have at least 128mb of RAM and have a fairly good processing speed. The video card is the heart of a gaming notebook so the getting a notebook with a good video card is important.

Another consideration would be the amount of system RAM the notebook has. For general purposes such as browsing the internet or word processing 256mb is enough. However for a decent gaming notebook you will need 1gb of RAM or more if possible. Most modern games will use 1gb where some will use even more. A good amount of RAM is essential to play today’s modern games.

Battery power is also essential. With a good video card and a fair amount of system RAM the notebook will need enough power to run all these components. Getting a high quality battery will ensure you won’t be searching for a power-point everywhere you go. If possible it is best to get a notebook accommodates a second battery. Gaming uses a lot of power compared to other mundane tasks so ensuring your notebook has ample power is not to be overlooked.

Buying a gaming laptop can be simple if you watch out for the points mentioned above. Most manufacturers have pre-built gaming configurations. These configurations can end up costing less compared to custom built notebooks but can also be lacking in some aspects.

Buy Laser Printer for effective printing

Computer printers are an important peripheral for any business houses today. The use of printer is endless you can use a printer for printing reports, documents, publishing newsletters or for just printing photos. One of the most preferred printers in many big business houses today is a laser printer.

A laser printer utilizes a laser beam to produce an image on a drum. The light that the laser releases alters the electrical charge on the drum. The drum is then rolled through a toner picked up by the charged portions of the drum. Finally the toner is transferred to the paper through a combination of heat and transfer.

Laser printers are considered to be the most ideal printing tools for printing today. Initially due to their high cost they were only favorable to big business houses however off late with a fall in prices they have been accepted in both homes and office environments.

Laser printer is known for its high quality text printing and excellent graphics printing. Though laser printer has a much higher initial cost as compared to inkjet printers or dot-matrix printers but they have a comparatively much lower running cost.

Laser printers are controlled through page description languages (PDLs). Page description languages have two de facto standards
• Printer Control Language (PCL)
• PostScript

Most software can print using either of these page description languages. PostScript is more expensive than PCL but it has additional features that PCL lacks.

Tips that can help you select the right printer
• Decide what type of documents you will be printing
• Decide what featured you will need like ability to handle large files, ability to print on various media, two or more paper trays etc
• Compare the print quality of different printers
• Compare the resolutions of different printers
• Compare the speed specifications of different printers
• Check whether the printer’s paper path is sharper than 90 degrees to handle envelopes, card stock and transparencies.
• Compare printer warranties and service contacts.

If you sit and work upon the above useful tips you will realize that laser printer just fits the bill.

Bundles Gone Wild: Phone Companies Exposed

You've probably seen the ad on television, "phone TV DSL", offered by SBC Global. Is it a good deal? Compared to services offered by traditional telephone service providers in the past, yes. Compared to what you could get by doing some research yourself, no.

While SBC advertises bundled telephone, DSL, and satellite TV service for around $75.00 a month, you knew there had to be a catch didn't you? The catch being the advertised price is not the end price. You'll also be bound to a contract.

Did you know you could be getting a much better deal on those services if you just do your homework? About an hour doing the research could save you a big hunk of money every month. Sure, you'll have to pay separate bills, but with the money saved, it's worth it.

Let me give you an example. You are probably looking for phone, TV, and DSL services. Let's discuss the promotional rate and the end price on each of these services. Keep in mind, these examples will reflect basic packages with no add on's.

Satellite TV from dish network will cost you about $19.99 a month for three months then go up to $31.99 plus $5.00 for DVR service in two rooms. Movie channel packages range from $12.00 to $40.00 a month. The end basic package price with 2 DVR's is $36.99

DSL or Cable broadband Internet from both ComCast and Earth Link will be around $19.99 to $29.99 for the first three to six months, depending on your service area. In most cases It will be $19.99 a month for the first six months then go to around $45.00 regular rate.

Broadband telephone service or VoIP from Vonage is about $15.00 a month for unlimited local calling plus 800 long distance minutes a month. Now, don't fall over, but this is not a promotional rate. This is the regular rate for basic service with Vonage.

So what we have now is phone, TV, and high speed broadband Internet for about $55.00 a month for the first few months, that's $20.00 a month cheaper than SBC. In the end, you'll be paying less than $100.00 a month for the services just mentioned.

So the next time you are looking for a good deal on bundled packages, keep in mind you'll save a whole lot more if you just take the time to bundle your own services and spend an extra five minutes each month paying your bills separately. That's an hour a year folks.

Building A PC

Many people simply go to the retail store and get sold to when it comes to computing equipment. You would be very surprised how easily you can pick up all the core components and assemble yourself or get a friend or family member in the know to do it for you. All the top brand PC manufacturers such as IBM, HP and Fujitsu Siemens offer you pre built PC’s, Dell on the other hand will take your order and build to your own style. Off them all Dell will come across more flexible with the specification, however, building your own will not only save you many dollars but make you aware of just how much profit these guys are making.

What are the core components of a PC?

Well let’s start with the basics you will need no matter how high or low spec you want the computer:

PC Case – Motherboard – Processor Chip – Fan – Power Supply – Hard Disk Drive – Memory (RAM) – Power Cord – Keyboard & Mouse – Graphics Card (may come on the motherboard) – Sound Card (if you require one). All these components will get you started. Remember build the PC to your own needs. Gaming PC’s generally need a good graphics card with 3d capabilities while general office PC’s do not need such powerful cards.

Processors:

Intel and AMD are the key players when it comes to processors, Intel offer the Pentium chip or Celeron while AMD have their range such as the AMD Athlon and Sempron. While both companies have their benefits Intel’s being that they are the largest selling globally but AMD seem to have the faster processing capabilities. When looking at the processors think sensibly and ask yourself do you really need the latest and greatest or would you notice the difference in point two of a processor e.g. 3GHz compared to 2.8GHz.

Remember keep the cost down, basic components such as the PC case comes in a number of different styles such as Mini Tower, Desktop. Choose what suits you. RAM (memory) will depend on what you plan to do, some games and simulators require large amounts of memory so check before you buy, and the graphics card will also depend on your PC plans. If you are generally using the PC for home and Internet browsing remember to purchase a modem or if you are planning broadband arrange with the installer and get yourself on the waiting list.

Building the PC

Building a PC is not as daunting as it seems. If you have not attempted to do this before it is a good idea to have supervision. Some of the components such as the memory need careful handling due to static electricity. Get an anti static wrist strap to protect the components, they cost very little and could save you a lot of money. There are plenty of cheap books out there to guide you in assembly but you will also find free articles online with diagrams for assembly.

Software:

Hardware is one thing but you also need the software such as the operating system and anti virus software for protection against viruses. Depending on what you want and what you are used to using before you can get free operating system such as Linux. Most of us are used to Microsoft Windows but you will require a licence to use this software. You may also need some office software such as Microsoft Office XP or 2003 standard or Professional edition. The anti virus software is essential and Norton’s or McAfee are some of the better known brands. There are also free downloads that will help protect your PC such as Stinger and Ad-Ware.

In Brief:

Building your very own PC gives you the flexibility that most manufacturers do not. The price is greatly reduced if you can assemble yourself and it will give you a great insight to all the components and key terms in computing. You will be surprised to find that not all is as technical as first seems.

Some quick notes: Do not forget the following: Modem – Make sure you also have enough USB ports for external devices such as a printer or digital camera. Always back your files up such externally on the off chance you have a problem with the Hard Disk Drive and your files are not transferable, something like a usb keyring would be ideal.

Build the layout from the base

The layout of the Myspace account page is very important since it forms the base. Work out the details of the layout very carefully before actually plotting the characters and features on them. Make sure that there is adequate space for all the characters and components on the layout. If the layout is not sufficient to host the features, problems relating to managing the account could be greater.

A number of layout designs are available for the use of the member. They can be of any shapes or sizes, but fit to meet the requirement. It can be the layout designs such as nature or landscape or those that are futuristic. If the layout designs are futuristic, it could reflect the attitude of the of the Myspace user. However, if you do not want to look futuristic in the layout, stick to the traditional design. The futuristic layout design might not be appealing to all of the visitors.

There are some technical issues also. The opening of the Myspace web page could slow down if the features are heavy and the background do not support them layout formation. In an effort to make the web page appropriate in terms of features and background, design the layout carefully. Make sure that the codes are appropriate and are in synchronization with the layout designs of the web page. If the codes of the layout do not match with the web page, there are chances that the entire Myspace page could be damaged. Ultimately, the recovery of the Myspace page could become problematic. It could be damaged permanently. Therefore, the best option is to download the pages with the codes and install them on the Myspace page at the layout level itself.

There are two options to download the layouts for the Myspace page. The first option is free downloads from popular sites and the second option is to go for paid layouts. There are a number of rich features under paid layout formats. Users also have the option of customizing the layouts according to the wishes of the users. There are plenty of tools available for the user to download from the site and opt for the preferred layouts. The options provided are user-friendly. If the user does not find the tools to be in accordance with the preference, there are multiple options to change the preferences. The paid layouts have a number of options that are available in the form of license. Unlicensed layouts are also available, but they are not reliable when compared to licensed layouts. Therefore, the best form is to go in for free layouts. The free layouts are also available on the Internet. Using the popular search engines Yahoo! and Google, you can access free layouts.

There are plenty Myspace layouts based on themes. For instance, there are layouts based on themes such as celebrities, nature, colors, movies, hobbies, personalized, standardized and other formats. They are also based on separate patterns and themes related to contemporary, futuristic and retrospective subjects. Check what is best for you. The layout should also match the background of the account.

Bubbles: Tech, Housing and Gum

Bubbles: Tech, Housing and Gum

Americans like The Tennessee Mountain Man are such optimists and patriots that the country just keeps growing and growing despite the messes of our own making and those imposed on us. And, without once considering where it is taking us.

Little wonder we know neither what the Holy Book nor the Hebrew, Muslim, or Christian prophets such as Michel de Nostredame have to say. Having lost the meaning of charity (love), the most important gift we had to lose the rest. We have even corrupted and confused "profit" with "prophet" as in prophet.com. Wise geek dot com says, in part: "The term prophet has several definitions and is based on issues of faith and belief. Loosely, a prophet is one of two things:
1) He or she receives a direct message from the divine, which is meant to be communicated to others.
2) He or she is able to somehow tap into divine knowledge and make predictions about the future of the world or about individuals."

But I digress thinking upon the cause rather than the reality. The Reality for example: The Tennessee Mountain Man hates chewing gum of any kind. He hates it being spit on the ground where it sticks to his shoes. He especially hates seeing bubbles being blown with bubble gum and hearing people who can't resist popping and smacking their chewing and bubble gum, a problem not associated with smokeless tobacco products.

Remote Helpdesk 1 is much more likely to terminate a computer repair technician for chewing gum than reporting to work with a hangover, or chewing tobacco. Outsourced IT Services customers do not want to hear a tech or anyone else chewing and popping gum or food in their ears.

Burk Pendergrass hates it when bubbles of any kind burst because someone always gets negatively effected. But the age old gum mess should have at least taught us how to recognize a bubble. It is, after all, exactly what the name implies. It is a bubble and bubbles all do the same thing. They tend to swell to an unsustainable point where they burst splattering all over anything or anyone within range.

In the 80's everyone was chasing a realtor's license because real property is where the money was. The result, almost everyone got burned.

In the 90's the tech industry had seemingly come of age and anyone and everyone with a nickel to invest was chasing tech stocks. The and result, everyone got burned.

2008 is almost here and guess what? Tech stocks are back in vogue while real estate investors are taking a beating once again. Guess what?

Bubbles: We may be patriotic and we may be optimistic, but for a capitalistic society we sure are short on memory. It is simply amazing that we can remember in an instant all the negatives associated with chewing gum and bubble gum, while blinded by our inherent driving greed we can't or won't see that big heavy bowling ball racing towards us like a speeding bullet getting ready to knock our feet out from under us again.

So far, we haven't seen men killing themselves in numbers like the last stock market crash, but what else could such a greedy future hold?

Don't the Holy Bible speak on this? Bible? Ah, yes. That uh...That Book mother always had prominently displayed in the living room and den. That Book which was always on the corner of dad's desk. Didn't it say something about gaining the whole world and loosing your soul? I wonder what ever happened to that Book?

Today every subject and discipline and government agency has it's own "bible" usually with the word "Bible" being part of the name or title. There is the evil bible at evilbible.com, the computer repair bible, the windows bible, the photoshop bible, the investor's bible, the job hunter's bible, and even the novel..."The Poisonwood Bible". Wonder what those bibles say about technological advances, bubbles, gum, greed and housing and God knowing you have need of these things and that He will provide? Wonder how their text compares with what dad's Bible said?

Oh, well...It is just human nature - Bubbles: Tech, Housing and Gum. In fact, see the tracks? A bubble head has recently been here. Better watch where you are stepping!

Brighten your lives through MySpace Layouts

In this modern world, people are all steering towards the internet to provide them with information, help out with shopping and for them to play some games. When they can do all this, why not get someone to decorate their house as well? Yes, there are people and companies who take up interior decoration assignments for corporates and homes. All you need to do is give them your budget, and color preference. You won’t have to lift a finger. If only it were this simple with your webpage right? It is, all you need to do is approach one of the MySpace Layouts sites and you can change the look, feel and appearance of your pages in a flash. Now, many of us have seen mind blowing beautiful web pages that make us wonder how much they spent on it. They wouldn’t have spent much, but used MySpace Layouts to add to the background. Or if they want to jazz it up further, they would have used the banner or text options on MySpace Layouts and added those in as well. Simple, isn’t it?

I am sure many of you are lost, wondering what is being discussed here. You are probably not very tech savvy or not familiar with these design related issues. Here is how you can add MySpace Layouts to your site, or web page or social networking page or even your blog to give it life.

1. Decide on theme-
If you are fond of butterflies and flowers, you can maybe use pastel shades of MySpace Layouts or nature related themes. These would go well with your personality and look good on your page. Since the colours are all soothing and not very loud, the page will have a feeling of walking through paradise on it. But while choosing your MySpace Layouts, check on how the page has been laid out there. This will give you an idea of how it will seem when you have inserted the MySpace Layouts code on your page.

2. Purpose-
What is the main purpose behind adding colours, pictures, fancy text on your page? Are you looking to impress others or to make new friends through these changes? If you want to reach out to work related people, the page must be customized with brief about your profile. Insert a write up in the MySpace Layouts about your work, personal life and other interests. When a visitor sees the MySpace Layouts, they will notice these few lines and reach you.

3. Complex-
There are some MySpace Layouts which are very complicated and confuse the person visiting your page. The comments box might be on the wrong side or when we type a message in the box it might appear to be going in the wrong direction. Instead of from left to write it would be from right towards left.

Brand new Myspace account with new features

Whenever you want to ensure that the Myspace account has to be revamped, simply go ahead to do that. Never wait to revamp the account. There are plenty of tools and designs available to redo the account page. However, one base that has to be kept in mind before redoing the account page is the background. Every change depends how the background is changed.

For instance, if the background is crimson, a number of colors and combinations can be worked with the base as the red color. New color combinations can also be worked out depending on whatever the account holder seeks. The tools necessary to carry out the experimentation on the background are also available on various Internet sites.

The ownership of developing the Myspace page depends on the requirements of the user. If the user wants to maintain a low profile, the Myspace page should be basic and normal without any additional features on the background. If the account holders do not want any visitors, then a filter to the page to screen the visitors can be installed. If you do not want the Myspace page to be in the public domain, it can be achieved by restricting access to the site for the visitors. All these features are embedded in the background by the user. The site can also have images of the member, favorite time pass hobbies, social life and networking issues.

If the account holder wants the Myspace page to be full of personal images and photographs, then select a dull and pale colored background for the site. The dull color is necessary to ensure that the images have adequate visibility and generic form. In a dull colored background, the visibility of the images will be enhanced and have visual appealing. If the background of the Myspace page is dark such as orange, yellow or violet, the images might not receive the attention due to them. Besides, they do not go well with the image flow on the web page. Besides, if the image album is black and white or restricted to certain colors, the color combination could be a total contrast. The resultant page will not be up to the expected level of the user as well as the visitor. Hence, as much as possible, keep the page evergreen by ensuring the right color and scheme combination. Choose a dull color like light pink or parrot green or grey. This will not only enhance the beauty of the images, but add greatly to the aesthetic value of the site. However, make sure that the color splash does not mask the images and photographs pasted on the background.

The background should have adequate space to host various features of the account holder such as cool new videos, audio files, streaming music, images, links fro web sites that provide update developments relating to all sectors, horoscope, file sharing codes, blogs, news, and music albums. Do not provide a clumsy look to the background by loading all the features on one corner. Try and distribute them with even space in between.

Boxtrapper spam protection for your email

Spend a little time, you will found a solution that will save you lots of time, instead of wasted on screening those spam mails. I had found my best spam protection solution, and it’s a free solution. I am talking about boxtrapper email spam protection.

My web hosting plan with bluehost hosting, are come with boxtrapper email protection. And I can activate it for free. It uses a very effective method to block spam from reaching you. You can add people you know into your ‘white list’, and block spammer emails, or email with certain keyword that you want to blog, eg. Pill, jackpot, drugs, etc.

Simple and effective. That’s what I looking for. If the email sender that is not in your white list sent an email to you, he is require to reply to the verification email. And only once he is verified, the email will reach you. Email bots are not capable to fool this system.

Once I was having an email account that received a spam mail every 5 minutes, and its keep coming in like crazy. It’s frustrated, and you can’t do anything if your email account that not have the boxtrapper feature. Think again, you will need email spam protection for your email. And definitely, not all web hosting are offering this. http://www.bluehostreview.org/bluehost/bluehost-email/ will have more information about email account with bluehost and also boxtrapper features.

A good web hosting must have good email system, and a good email system must have an effective spam protection. That’s what I think.

Blu-ray Technology

New technology is now making it possible for viewers to record and store high definition programming onto DVDs. Blu-ray Disc is one method of recording HD content onto an optical disc. A blue-laser optical disc (MPEG-2 or MPEG-4) is used. Systems that use this technology will be able to play traditional DVDs, but the goal of Blu-ray is to create an image that's as close to the HD format as possible. The name Blu-ray comes from the blue laser that decodes and copies information to each disk. Blu-ray technology may very well revolutionize the world of high definition programming. The Blu-ray disc format offers greater potential for storage, usually 25 gigabytes, which exceeds that of a standard DVD (15 gigabytes). One single-layer Blu-ray disk can hold about four hours of high definition content. A two-layer disk can contain eight hours of HD content. Four- and eight-layer disks are now in the works. These disks would have storage capabilities of 100 and 200 gigabytes. The Blu-ray recording system utilizes a shorter wavelength for recording information than traditional CDs and DVDs, and this is part of what allows it to hold more content on a single disk.

Blu-ray has also influenced the computer industry, specifically in terms of data storage capability. A number of major companies have come out in support of Blu-ray, including Apple, Dell, Hitachi, Pioneer, and Sony. Hewlett Packard plans to market desktop computers and laptops that utilize Blu-ray technology. Sony has announced that it will introduce a Blu-ray component in PlayStation 3, which is expected to appear in November of this year. Microsoft has also said that it may add a Blu-ray component to its Xbox 360. Currently, Blu-ray is only available in Japan, but it will appear in the United States in May, in video games and a DVD system that recreates a high definition effect on a viewer's TV.

Many movie studios have Blu-ray films planned for future release. In 2005, Sony Pictures cornered the market on the first Blu-ray feature-length movie disk, which was none other than Charlie's Angels: Full Throttle. Studios that support the technology include Walt Disney and Twentieth Century Fox.

Competing with Blu-ray in the area of HD storage is HD DVD. HD DVD disks have less storage capability, but they're cheaper to produce. Other big-name companies are showing their support for this option, including Microsoft, Intel and Toshiba, as well as Universal Studios. In what may be the smartest move, some companies are backing both types of technology, ensuring that their products support both Blu-ray and HD DVD. These companies include Samsung, Paramount and Warner Brothers.

Blu-ray is facing challenges from other competitors in the HD market: the Enhanced Versatile disk, the Digital Multilayer disk, and the Holographic Versatile disk are a few alternatives to Blu-ray. But at the moment, Blu-ray has a strong lead in the HD race. Check out New Technology TV for more information.

Bluetooth Technology Is Likely To Be The Answer You Are Looking For!

Several large and well-known companies developed Bluetooth as an industry standard. The standard was introduced in order to specify how hand held devices, computers and other peripherals would communicate with one another without the need for cables. It uses short distance radio signals in order to generate communication between one device and another in close proximity. It is already widely used around the world in particular in bluetooth headsets, used for speaking on your cell phone when driving. However, data can be passed between any bluetooth devices within range.

Bluetooth is the simplest and most widely available technology of its kind. This means that manufacturers can build bluetooth-enabled devices quickly and effectively and pass this saving directly on to consumers. It is also extremely convenient and bluetooth devices are usually incredibly small. This is why it is used in hands free headsets for use with cell phones.

Because bluetooth is the industry standard, this means that it is widely accepted and regularly used by companies from all over the world for many different reasons. Because it is so easily accessible and the transfer of data from one bluetooth device to another is completely free it is the most popular option. It is also incredibly easy for consumers to use and in many cases it is simply a case of turning the bluetooth devices on and then sending the data as required.

Bluetooth Security

Bluetooth Security

These days, all communication technology faces the
issue of privacy and identity theft, with Bluetooth
being no exception. Almost everyone knows that email
services and networks require security. What users
of Bluetooth need to realize is that Bluetooth also
requires security measures as well.

The good news for Bluetooth users is that the
security scares, like most scares, are normally over
dramatized and blown entirely out of proportion. The
truth being told, these issues are easy to manage,
with various measures already in place to provide
security for Bluetooth technology.

It's true that there has been some Bluetooth phones
that have been hacked into. Most devices that are
hacked into are normally those that don't have any
type of security at all.

According to Bluetooth specialists, in order to hack
into a Bluetooth device, the hacker must:
1. Force two paired devices to break their
connection.
2. Steal the packets that are used to
resend the pin.
3. Decode the pin.

Of course, the hacker must also be within range of
the device, and using very expensive developer type
equipment. Most specialists recommend that you
have a longer pin, with 8 digits being recommended.

Fundamentals of security
The "pairing process" is one of the most basic levels
of security for Bluetooth devices. Pairing, is
two or more Bluetooth devices that recognize each
other by the profiles they share - in most cases
they both must enter the same pin.

The core specifications for Bluetooth use an
encryption algorithm, which is completely and entirely
secure. Once the devices pair with each other,
they too become entirely secure.

Until they have successfully paired, the Bluetooth
devices won't communicate with each other. Due to
this pairing process and the fact that it is short
range - Bluetooth technology is considered to be
secure.

As the news has indicated, experienced hackers
have developed ways to get around this level of
basic security. There are ways to get around this
threat, as you can install software to prevent
hackers from getting in.

With Bluetooth becoming more and more popular, it's
really no wonder that security is always in
question. As Bluetooth gets bigger and better,
security will always be something that no one
really takes lightly.

If you've been concerned about Bluetooth security
in the past, rest assured that newer devices will
offer bigger and better security. Preventing
hackers from getting in is something every owner
is concerned about - and the manufacturer's are
very aware.

Other wireless technology such as Garmin GPS utilizes complex wireless systems that let you know where you are, on any place in the world.

Bluetooth In Action

Bluetooth In Action

In the United States, Bluetooth gets positively no
esteem. Bodily is however, becoming new and added

unseasoned wireless technology. Referred to in that UWB or
Ultra Wideband, true promises data transfer of up
to 480 MB a second - bout most current Bluetooth
devices transfer data up to 721 KB a second.

For the stage being, Bluetooth devices are just so
cropping up. Below, we will regarding at some of
the accessories offered stifle Bluetooth technology.

Bluetooth, Smartphones And Apple

Bluetooth, Smartphones And Apple

Laptops are the firsts ones to use bluetooth technology. But technology is inevitable and today, more and more gadgets, such as smartphones uses the same technology to communicate with other devices.

Bluetooth And Apple The new Apple powerbook G4 are among the first computers to offer Bluetooth technology 2.0+EDR. The 2.0+EDR technology, which still backwards compatible with 1.0, is up to three times faster than previous versions, offering maximum data rate transfers of up to 3 MBps. Being the first company to certify a system with 2.0+EDR, Apple continues to make great use of the Bluetooth technology.

Bluetooth

What is Bluetooth

If you have recently purchased a cellphone you may have been told whether or not your device was Bluetooth capable. Bluetooth technology enables a completely wireless headset that attaches onto the ear of the user. It allows the user to communicate hands free with no additional wires. Bluetooth technology prides itself on being very secure and having privacy as one of its main focuses. The device looks almost space age like something out of Star Wars since it fits directly on the ear and is very small like most advanced technology.

Why Own a Bluetooth?

The most obvious reason to own a Bluetooth is for the ability to talk hands free while moving around or driving. Many state are beginning to implement traffic laws that forbid the usage of cellphones without a hands free device. Bluetooth technology will become all important for people that are on the go that need to reach the home or office while driving. Not to mention they are very convenient while shopping at the supermarket and one forgets what they were supposed to purchase. It allows the user to call home to find out what needed to be purchased.

About Bluetooth Technology

Bluetooth comes equipped with a 2.45 GHz which is a tranceiver that sends and receives in an unused frequency. It is able to be accessed around the world. Also, each bluetooth has its own 48 bit address. The connections are in the format of point to point or multipoint in nature. The furthest range allowed is ten meters at this time, so it is a short range wireless device. Data travels at a speed of one megabit a second.

How Bluetooth Can be Used

Bluetooth is by far not just to be used as a hands free device for a cellphone. In addition, Bluetooth can allow for the exchange of information between multiple devices such as: digital cameras, GPS receivers, laptops, mobile phones, PC's, printers, and video game consoles. The communication passes through a secure, short-range radio frequency. It is licensed on a global level.

Blogging

The fact that an estimated 40,000 new blogs are being started daily should be of great interest to anybody already in the web hosting business or intending to go into it. Especially those planning to go into the business as affiliates or as resellers because this group of online entrepreneurs are in a very good position to cash in quickly on this amazing growth rate of blogs with hardly any investment necessary.

While it is true that a vast majority of blogs are hosted free, it is also true that many blogs are gaining high traffic so quickly that they are forced to quickly find paid web hosting as they exceed their allocated bandwidth.

The other fact to bear in mind is that virtually all successful bloggers own several blogs. This is significant because it is not easy to own several websites since lots of technical know-how and time are required to maintain a single website, let alone several. This is not the case with a blog that mainly requires content and very little technical knowledge to run very successfully. In terms of business volumes this simply means that a web hosting business that targets blogs is bound to grow a lot faster than the one that only seeks clients from the ranks of traditional websites.

The other significant factor in blogs that should be of great benefit to any web hosting business is the huge traffic that blogs seem to enjoy almost effortlessly.

All a web host entrepreneur needs to do, is to find a way to advertise their web hosting services to this blog traffic. There are several ways of doing this. You can for example look for acceptable ways of creating as many links from the blogs to your web hosting sites as possible. You can even start your very own blog on the subject.

Bless Your Ears And Feed Your Brain. Sony Headphones.

Looking to bless your ears and feed your brain the sonic genius your favorite musician's recording engineer intended?

If you're sitting, strolling, painting...even mowing the lawn...and you require an Accurate, Un-Tinged reproduction of music as it was recorded, engineered and intended, a set of Sony MDR-7506 headphones are a must. Chances are...the music that you're listening to may have been recorded and mixed using these headphones.

The MDR-7506 boasts a frequency range from 10Hz to 20kHz. In other words, very low frequencies -ie. thumping bass drums, bass guitar, synth sub-sounds, etc. to whispy cymbals, tse-tse high hats, Kate Bush's trills, even the phlegm in someone's throat upon taking another breath can be recognized. Maybe even a problem!

I've owned these headphones for 7 years. Need I say more? Let me say it again. I've owned these headphones for 7 years after having used many other makes and models. If these ever burn out, are crushed under a truck, are thrown off of a bridge or stolen, I wouldn't think twice about replacing them with the same.

Our daughter was born almost 5 years ago, we would rock her to sleep, and then I was a rockstar in my own mind, er ah, in my headphones with

electric guitars, sampling/ rhythm sequencer, accoustic drums (mic'd), synthesizer, recorder/mixer, and assorted sweetened sonic noise toys. I would rock myself to sleep as well without waking anyone up through the night. The next day I could "unveil" the previous night's workout via the room monitors. "AAAhhhh..excellent! Just as I intended!"

These phones have treated me well with clear clean reproduction of what I've put into them. I have also punished myself, rattled my brain as it were.. But was able to recover without medical attention.

The foam padded 'closed ear cups' essentially focus what you're listening to where you want it. Right between your eyes. Close your eyes. . .Yes there it is. I can see it! No! now it's over there. Fans of Pink Floyd, Flaming Lips, Beck, Bjork...JUST TO NAME A FEW! Put down your beer, dim the lights, close your eyes and your mind WILL ride the stereo wave. Undistorted, Un-Colored.

The closed cups also help to prevent ambient (room, yard, gym) sounds from entering your sound-(e)scape. These are not, by the way, considered "Noise Cancelling Headphones". But with the closed cups, and dynamic range...you won't really be paying much attention to anything else.
Another point about volume vs. sound quality and aural health:

With quality sound transducers that are capable of accurately reproducing the complete frequency range of the recording, you will find that you don't have to 'blast' yer phones in order to click your brain into the groove that you know or think ought to be there. Listening through headphones is not like being at a show where you can stand in front of the subs and feel every beat of a kick drum bounce the shirt on your chest.

Headphones are more of a sound quality experience. An.."oh! I've never heard that before..or that way before" kind of experience. Ahhhh! The clarity.

The MDR-7506 phones fold up into about a palm sized package and go neatly into a supplied pouch with drawstring. I wondered about this when I got them. "is this gadgety or what? why do I need to fold these up? How soon before something starts falling apart?" I repeat. I've had these for 6 years...a lot of use..and now have two kids who find and 'play' with them sometimes. I haven't had to address any of my previous doubts or cynicism re: integrity of design.

The cord is an 8'-10' recoil cord with 'UniMatch' plug. Which means it has a 1/8" stereo plug end (for your iPod or video camera) and or a 1/4" stereo plug that screws on over the 1/8" end so you can plug into your home stereo, or your mixing board, synthesizer, or your stereo delay and/or chorus effects pedal for your guitar! Mucho enjoyable!

Not really intended for physical activities. Have lost these off the top of my head from time to time during a few power-chord rock-a-billy rants. Use of a tight knit hat on top of everything helps to prevent this. Whether you're riding a train to work downtown, shoveling your driveway or programming the next hit sensation video game. Built to boom, bop and bash..!

MDR-7506 headphones with pouch -
-unbeatable@under $100.

ps
Don't even mess with those little phones with foamy ear thingys that sort of sit over you ears (if you really want to hear...well..anything).

Ear buds are good if you're jogging or playing tennis. They shouldn't fall out, and won't fall off your head at love 15.

Binoculars – Take A Long View

You can be a hunter or a bird watcher (an ornithologist,) or even military or marine personnel. You can do pretty little without good pair binoculars. But when you want to buy a pair for yourself, you know you can’t hope to cross match the specifications of a bird watchers’ needs with your, a soldier’s, needs.

Considerations before Buying Binoculars

Fundamentally, since you are planning to buy binoculars, it goes imperative that they must match your needs. Binoculars are manufactured to suit specific needs of different professionals. Give a thought to the number of hours you use it on a day to day basis. Naval range finding binoculars are huge and weigh upto 10 tons. Secondly, buying binoculars is a very personal matter; how much weight you are comfortable with, what eyepiece suits you if you are bespectacled and so on.

Consider the Following Points First

Magnification and lens diameters are the fundamental parameters you must consider regardless of the type you require. Binocular of 7x35 means 7 times magnification of the objects than would be possible with naked eyes and the front lens has a diameter of 35 millimeters. Larger the diameter, larger is the field of view but magnification power decreases accordingly. Larger diameter also ensures clarity of pictures which otherwise would appear hazy. Just doubling the diameter quadruples the clarity by increased light gathering.

If your reason for buying binoculars is horse race watching or military surveillance, larger field of view suits better. Field of view signifies the area of vision specified in degrees. To understand the width of view from a distance of 1000 yards, multiply the specified degrees by 52.5.

The glare of lenses is reduced by special coating.

· Plain coating
· Full coating
· Multicoated
· Fully multicoated

Plain coating is very poor, so get yourself binoculars which are at least fully coated.

Check for rubber eyecups if you are bespectacled; next, if the lenses are fitted deep in, the field of view is curtailed even for persons without spectacles. As for focal length, a close range (15-18ft) would do better for birding. So, check whether you can focus your hand to confirm this point.

Zoom function helps adjust the power for birding and military purpose. For such binoculars the power is indicated in ranges like 10-50x50. This means the power ranges from 10 times to 50 which is the maximum.

Finally, what you can’t forget are designs like Porro Prisms, Roof Prisms and pocket designs. The latter is handy owing to small size and weight but images will be darker. Porro prism designs provide larger exit pupils, quick & closer focus, wide field of view. But it’s bulky. Roof prism design offers a lighter, water proofed binoculars but costs a hell.

Which Wireless Plan And Phone Should I Buy

“Which cell phone should I buy” is a question a lot of people ask, but it is one that doesn’t have an easy or simple answer. That’s because there are so many cell phone choices and plans available today, and different people have different needs and different reasons for wanting to get a cell phone. If someone is looking for a cell phone to carry just for emergencies or if their vehicle breaks down, a basic phone with a low cost plan is all that is needed. A prepaid phone with minutes that do not expire quickly is another good choice. On the other hand, if someone wants to have a phone to use as their primary mode of communication and also wants to be able to store information in it, a combination cell phone and PDA might be the best choice. A calling plan that includes a significant number of calling minutes that can be used any time would probably also be a good choice for that person. The first step in buying a wireless phone and calling plan is to get out a piece of paper and a pen. Write down the reasons why you are going to purchase a cell phone along with what you are going to use it for. Think about how many minutes a month you will probably be using the phone. If you plan on using the phone often you will want a plan that has a lot of “anytime” minutes, not just minutes that can be used at night and on weekends. Where is the phone going to be used? Will you be using it primarily in the area you live and work or do you travel frequently? If you travel frequently and plan to take your phone with you, a plan that gives you nationwide coverage is a good choice. If you travel out of the country frequently, look for a phone that can be used internationally. If you plan to use the phone extensively in your home area, look for a local or regional plan that offers a lot of minutes during the times you plan on using the phone. If you want to be connected with your spouse and children, a family plan is a good choice. Look for a family plan that lets family members talk to each other as much as they want without using any of their plan minutes. Look for specials on phones. Wireless companies often offer specials deals when purchasing a family plan (and other plans as well). It is sometimes possible to get phones for the entire family for very little money or even free with a contract commitment to keep the service for a certain period of time, usually two years if you want to get the best deal. Some people want to be able to have short and quick conversations. For those people a push-to-talk phone may be a great idea because it allows quick conversations that do not count against a person’s plan minutes. One caveat; the other person or people you want to have a conversation with also have to have a phone with push-to-talk capability in order for a push-to-talk conversation to be held. If the ability to text message is important check to see how much text messaging is going to add to the cost of your plan each month. Text messaging is most popular with teens. Many adults however would rather call someone than try to type a text message into a cell phone that has tiny keys, and most cell phones do. If you do a lot of text messaging, a stylus (the type used with PDA’s) can make typing messages much easier. One of the most important considerations is your budget. How much can you afford to spend each month? Even low cost plans can start to get costly if a lot of additional features are added to the basic plan such as text messaging, picture messaging, Internet access, and any of the myriad of downloads that are available from ring tones to games to the latest news and sports scores. Optional insurance on a phone also adds to monthly costs. Depending on the wireless company you use, the monthly phone insurance cost is approximately four to six dollars. Insurance may be a good idea if the phone isn’t always going to be handled with care or if it is a picture phone, because one hard fall on concrete can ruin the picture-taking capabilities of a picture phone. Take time to consider how many minutes you will realistically use. Although the charges for going over plan minutes can be costly (usually at least 40 cents a minute with the exception of some plans that allow for overages and charge a reasonable fee), most people don’t ever get even close to using all their minutes each month. If you are not sure how many minutes you will use, choose a mid-range plan and closely track your minute usage for three months. Then adjust your plan accordingly. If you are not a person that wants to commit to a one or two year contract, a pay as you go plan is probably the best option. There is no long term commitment and most of the major wireless carriers now offer a pay as you go package. Another big consideration is coverage. Some of the major carriers do not have good coverage in some areas so also check with the local and regional companies in your area to see what their coverage areas are. Probably the best way to find out how good the coverage is in your area is to talk to family and friends who already have cell phones. Ask them what their reception is like and if there are any areas where it is so poor that conversations are nearly impossible. Also ask how often they have dropped calls. Those pieces of information will give you a good idea of how good the coverage really is in your area. Once you decide on a company, a plan, a phone, and your contract is signed; use the fifteen or thirty day return period that many companies now offer to use your new phone in all the areas you will most often use your phone. If the phone does not work well in those areas, do not be afraid to return the phone and try a different carrier. Be aware that even though coverage areas are quickly getting more expansive, there are still areas that do not have very good coverage no matter which carrier is chosen. There are lots of phone choices available. Many plans offer decent quality phones for a nominal cost or for free with the contract commitment. Phones can be free or cost several hundred dollars. Shop around. Try out phones. Get a phone that you like and can easily use. Many people overbuy on their phone. They want all the latest features and gadgets but hardly ever use them. For instance, picture phones are very popular right now but most people who have a picture phone hardly every use it. Do not let an overzealous salesperson talk you into the latest and greatest phone unless that is what you want. In the end, the choices are yours to make. By doing some planning, research, and by shopping around before buying, you will be able to make an informed decision based on your needs, wants, and budget; and will have a plan and phone you are comfortable with.

Wireless Router & Security: A Step-By-Step Guide

Setting up a wireless router is easy. Essentially you turn your cable or DSL modem off and your wireless router on. Then, you connect the router to the modem with a cable, and turn the modem back on. You are more or less done. The wireless network wizard on your computer will pick up the router and, if your ISP does not have any special requirements, away-you-go, you are on the Internet. For ease of setup and configuration, manufacturers ship wireless routers with all security disabled. Therein lies the problem. If you do not take any further steps to secure your router, and a surprising number of people don’t, your network will be wide open to all passersby and strangers. It’s like you’ve hung out a sign, “The door is open. Please come in and help yourself.” The problem is not that strangers will be able to use your router to access the Internet but that, without further protection, would-be intruders will be able monitor and sniff out information you send and receive on your network. Malicious intruders can even hop on to your internal network; access your hard drives; and, steal, edit, or delete files on your computer. The good news is that it is relatively easy to secure your wireless router. Here are three basic steps you should take. 1. Password protect the access to your router’s internal configuration To access your router’s internal setup, open a browser and enter the routers setup URL. The URL will be specified in the manual. The URLs for D-Link and Linksys routers, two major manufacturers of wireless routers, are http://192.168.0.1 and http://192.168.1.1, respectively. For Linksys routers, leave the user name blank and type “admin” (without the quotes) in the password field and press enter. To change the password, simply click on the Password tab and enter your new password. For other routers, please consult your manual. Alternately, you can search on the Internet with the term “default login for ”. Don’t be surprised to find quite a number of pages listing default login parameters for many different routers, even uncommon ones. 2. Change the default SSID (Service Set IDentifier) The SSID is the name of a WLAN (Wireless Local Area Network). All wireless devices on a WLAN use SSIDs to communicate with each other. Routers ship with standard default SSIDs. For example, the default SSID for Linksys routers is, not unsurprisingly, “Linksys”. As you can see, if you don’t change the default SSID of your router a would-be intruder armed with a few common SSIDs from major manufacturers will be able to find your wireless network quite easily. To change the SSID, click on the Wireless tab. Look for an input item labeled SSID. It will be near the top. Enter a new name for network. Don’t use something like “My Network”. Use a name that is be hard to guess. 3. Disable SSID broadcast Wireless enabled computers use network discovery software to automatically search for nearby SSIDs. Some of the more advanced software will query the SSIDs of nearby networks and even display their names. Therefore, changing the network name only helps partially to secure your network. To prevent your network name from being discovered, you must disable SSID broadcast. In the same screen that you changed the name of your network, you will see options for SSID broadcast. Choose “Disable SSID” to make your network invisible. Now save all your settings and log out. Since your wireless network is now invisible, you will have to configure your computers to connect to your wireless network using the new name. On Windows XP, start by clicking on the wireless icon in the Notification Area and proceed from there. With these three steps, your network now has basic security. However, if you keep sensitive information on your computers, you may want to secure your wireless network even further. For example, you can - Change the channel your router uses to transmit and receive data on a regularly basis. - Restrict devices that can connect to the router by filtering out MAC (Media Access Control) addresses. - Use encryption such as WEP and WPA. As with most things in life, security is a trade off between cost (time, money, inconvenience) and benefit (ease of use). It is a personal decision you make. However for the majority of home uses, the three basic steps plus WEP/WPA encryption provides reasonably strong security. Turning on encryption is a two-step process. First you configure your router to use encryption using an encryption key of your choice. And then, you configure your computer to use the encryption key. The actual process of configuring your router for encryption varies from router to router. Please consult the router’s manual. There are even stronger methods for ensuring security. A strong and robust security method is RADIUS (Remote Authentication Dial In User Service). Using RADIUS requires additional hardware and software. However, there are companies that offer RADIUS security as a subscription based service. The fees are reasonable and dropping. Therefore for example, if you run a business on your wireless network, have sensitive data on your computers such as credit card information, and have a number of users who access your network, you should consider using RADIUS. Since the service sector for RADIUS is dynamic and growing, a search on the Internet with terms like “RADIUS subscription” or “RADIUS service” is probably the best way to locate one.

Bingo History: Story of the Game Bingo

The origins of contemporary bingo go back to 16th century Italy, where the lottery game Lo Giuoco del Lotto dItalia was introduced. The popular chance game was introduced to North America in the late 1920s by the name of Beano. A toy salesperson of New York was responsible for changing the name of the game into Bingo and to the increase of its popularity throughout the US.

In the late 18th century, the original Italian lotto game made its way to France. Historical evidence shows that a game called Le Lotto was popular among the French high society who used to play the game in parties and social gatherings.

Le Lotto used to be played with special cards that were divided into three rows and nine columns. Each of the three columns consists of 10 numbers, while each column had five random number and four blank spaces in it. Each player had a different lotto card where he used to mark the number announced by the caller. The first player to cover one row won the game.

By the 19th century, the lotto game spread around Europe and started to serve as a didactic childrens game. In the 1850s, several educational lotto games had entered the German toys market. The lotto games purpose was to teach children how to spell words, how to multiply numbers, etc.

By 1920s, a similar version to the lotto game, known as beano was popular at county fairs throughout the US. In beano, the players placed beans on their cards to mark the called out number. The first player who completed a full row on his card, used to yell out Beano!, until one night in December 1929, when a New Yorker toys salesperson by the name of Edwin S. Lowe visited a country fair outside Jacksonville, Georgia.

On his way back to New York, Lowe had purchased beano equipment including dried beans, a rubber numbering stamp and cardboard. At his New York home, Lowe has been hosting friendly beano games. During one game, one excited winner who had managed to complete a full row stuttered out Bingo, instead of Beano. Listening to the excited stuttering girl, Edwin S. Lowe thoughts went away. Lowe decided to develop a new game that would be called Bingo.

While Lowe’s Bingo game was making its first steps in the market, a Pennsylvanian priest asked Lowe to use the game for charity purpose. After a short tryout period, the priest had found out that the bingo game causes the churches to lose money. Since the variety of bingo cards was limited, each bingo game ended up in more than five winners.

In order to develop the game and to lower the probabilities of winning, Lowe approached Prof. Carl Leffler, a mathematician from Columbia University. Leffler was asked to create bigger variety of bingo cards that each of them will have unique combination of numbers. By 1930, Lowe had 6,000 bingo cards and Prof. Leffler went insane.

Since then, the popularity of the bingo game as a fundraiser continued to grow. In less than five years, about 10,000 weekly bingo games took place throughout North America. Lowe’s company grew to employ several thousands of employees and to occupy more than 60 presses 24 hours a day.

Now, bingo is one of the most popular chance games in the world. It is played in churches, schools, local bingo halls and land based casinos in the US, the UK, Australia, New Zealand and other parts of the world.

Binding Machine Buying Tips

Whenever you are asked to prepare an annual report or a technical paper, you want it to look as professional as it can be. The same thing is true with client presentations. And aside from making your document look professional, you would also want to protect it with covers so that I can be used for a longer time. There are many applications that can enhance the appearance of documents while protecting it better. Among them are binding machines. Binding machines, or binders, are machines used to align, punch, and enclose individual sheets of papers into document sets. With binding machines, you can make documents look more professional, keep them well protected and lengthen their usage life.

1. Document Protection

Now, all binding can enhance the appearance of documents and protect them from damages. Choosing a binding machine to use for your report or paper, however, is not as simple as just picking any binder you can find in the market. There are many types of binding machines and each type would differ in price, binding method, capacity and a lot of other things. The question now is what kind of binding machine would you want to purchase?

2. What Kind Of Document To Bind?

Different kinds of documents require different styles and not all kinds of binding machines can give your document the binding style it needs. Decide whether your document needs a traditional finish, a book-style finish, a contemporary finish or a finish with some metallic appearance. Then, base your choice on this decision.

3. How Thick?

Each type of binding machine has a limit on the thickness of the document it can bind. Some binding machines can bind documents of up to 3 inches in thickness while others are limited to binding I inch documents.

4. How Will The Machine Be Used?

If the binding machine would be used at home or in a home office, and not regularly at that, then a simple and affordable binding machine would generally be recommended. Larger offices that demands more binding jobs would need some complex and electrical binding machine unit.

5. Binding Machine Options

After you’ve answered all the questions and have eventually determined what kind of binding machine you need for your documents, then it is time for you to consider your options. There are a lot of binding machines available today and each of them has their own set of strengths and weaknesses.

- Coil Spiral Binding Machine
- Plastic Comb Binding Machine
- Wire Binding Machine
- Thermal Tape Binding Machine

6. Coil Spiral Binding Machines

Coil or spiral binding is probably the most recognizable type of binding technology. It is the type of binding that one usually sees in blank notebooks. Coil binding machines are available in table top and floor standing models. These machines are also available in manual or electric configurations. Spiral binding machines bind documents by (1) punching holes on the pages, (2) inserting the coil, and (3) crimping and cutting the coil ends.
