I feel like the new kid at school again: A bit shy, reserved, and somewhat intimidated by the veterans. But, at the same time, I am extremely excited for the change and the new adventures that lay ahead. If you’re still wondering why Janine changed her hair, let me put your minds at ease.
It wasn’t so long ago the Apple was the phone to have. Yes, there were the holdouts who took a...
Engineers are tossing the batteries and making advances to save wasted energy in more effective...
Okay, so it’s no surprise that the engineering community is continuing to be taxed by a need to shrink both the number of components housed on the board, as well as the size of them. So it’s been great to see how a number of semiconductor, power supply, and connector companies are working to provide these solutions.
I’m at the midway point during my first trip to electronica and it has proven both awesome and challenging. Awesome in the number of new technologies that are on display; challenging in navigating a show that is so expansive. Awesome in how much I love Munich; and challenging (to my body) with the amount of beer consumption.
For some, the shower is a sacred place to escape the world for a while and wash all your worries away. For others, the shower is a necessity – an in-and-out in five minutes type deal. Either way, you might get some use – or just a kick – out of some of these shower gadgets and accessories.
We’ve all been there – distracted while driving. Unfortunately for some, it can result in a horrible accident. Hitting another car, a tree, or even a pedestrian. General Motors is making moves to prevent these accidents, and I must admit – the technology is pretty cool (and you’ve probably heard of it).
I’m a strong believer in cleaning up after yourself, but sometimes a crazy schedule crowds not only your calendar, but also your home. As a girl, each morning is a stressful, messy event. Shower – drop the towel on the floor; brush hair – leave the brush on the bathroom vanity; get dressed (five times) – leave the “no’s” on the bed, or the floor, or wherever they land.
So you think you're smart, right? You think you’re memory is impeccable; you always know where you left your keys. You’re definitely quick – you’ve always got the answers tucked away, just waiting for someone to ask the questions. You have strong cognitive capacities through genetics and early development – thank your parents.
We’ve all seen it happen – a pooch waiting in the car for its owner on what feels like a thousand degree day. Even with the car off, the temperature inside can rise to a harmful, potentially life-threatening level. Aaron Starkman felt the threats first hand. After leaving his dog, Hefty, in the car for what he thought would be a couple minutes in the pouring rain, he returned after a 20-minute-long lineup to the sun shining and Hefty struggling in the heat.
I’ve been a Blackberry lover since day one, and for a long time, I loathed each person I saw with an iPhone. In the back of my mind I knew it was pure jealousy, as my good ol’ berry was falling apart in my hands. My carelessness aided in the destruction of this once shiny, new device. At the top of the phone you could see the green circuit board shining through, the plastic covering broke off during an epic fall.
Twelve journalists pack into a tiny glass room with the most captivating views of Oslo – the land of the midnight sun. Situated at the top of Holmenkollen, an Olympic ski jump, the room showcases 360° views of Oslo’s hilly countryside, lively downtown and Pipervika, the Norwegian capital’s principal harbor.
By Janine E. Mooney, Editor Design changes present new opportunities, and requirements, that allow the RF industry to assume a much greater application reach. Malcolm Gladwell, a British-born Canadian journalist, bestselling author and speaker, once said, “Connectors are people in a community who know large numbers of people and who are in the habit of making introductions.
By Janine E. Mooney, Editor EMI gaskets are a must in order to properly block all interference from reaching your device. A key concern when shielding your design is choosing a gasket. Gaskets are used to seal seams and other gaps that can cause problems in shielding, thus implementing the best fit is imperative.
By Janine E. Mooney, Editor EMI has the ability to interrupt or even destroy the functionality of unprotected electronics. What’s more important than protecting your valuable electronics from potential threats? Not much. Especially with regards to military electronics, which are growing more and more prevalent every day.
