2  Ponies / General Discussion / What to check for when buying your Laptop on: November 07, 2012, 06:36:13 am
When you’re ready to buy your own computer, don’t be in a rush and buy the first machine you come across that fits your budget.  Whatever your budget is, there won’t be a problem in finding a machine suitable; what is more important is to know what you need it for and whether the computer  you have chosen is capable of providing you with the speed, space and functionality you expect from it. Doing some research before hand will not hurt you and help you to decide which particular computer is best for your needs.

If it’s the first time you are purchasing your machine, it will most probably be a laptop computer, a Notebook or Netbook. These are the three most popular types of computers that everyone goes for with the  model you hope to buy depending on the money you can spend at the time. Let’s start with the Netbook which is the smallest of the three types and will provide you with everything you need in a computer at a lesser price. Just because it’s comparatively cheap doesn’t mean that a Netbook computer is slow or sluggish although if speed is of the essence, cut down on unessential components such as a powerful sound or graphics card and settle for a Notebook  with a fast processing speed.

Whether you buy a Netbook or Notebook, keep in mind that the hard drive of the computer also matters a great deal with one that has more disc space being always better in the long term.  While it’s always possible to get additional memory through the use of a “Flash drive” this might not always be possible in view of the very few USB ports found on a Netbook and Notebook computer. Another reason to ensure that your  machine is built in with the desired space is so that you don’t have to take other components with you since the main reason for buying a laptop, or notebook is because of its portability.

One of the main disadvantages of the Laptop and other mobile computers is the minimum battery life they offer. In most instances the actual time you can use your battery is much less than what is stated by the manufacturer. Therefore before you buy your Laptop computer, make sure there’s at least a reasonable time such as 80% of what is stated. You will understand that the cheaper computers suffer more in this regard while those in the upper price bracket having a better life whether it’s a Netbook or Laptop.  At an average you can expect to have 5 hours of battery time and if you come across any Laptop computer or Notebook that has a better life, you should definitely put it on top of your list.

Unlike in the past, the storage capacity of the Notebook has been considerably increased with many Notebook computer being available with 250GB memory.  They have also been Wi-Fi enabled now offering greater advantage and portability to the user. The Notebook also has a LCD screen which provides  better  viewing and brighter pictures with the latest Notebooks having inbuilt cameras and sound cards that makes extra peripherals absolutely unnecessary for those using these computers.
3  Ponies / General Discussion / Replacing your old desktop computer with an all in one PC on: November 07, 2012, 06:33:56 am
The desktop computer which was at one time king in all offices and home is fast losing its glory due to the advent of laptops, notebooks and iPads. But make no mistake the desktop is still the mainstay of personal computing and if you were to ask any serious computer geek or a professional, they will all say that they preferred the desktop computer to anything else that has been invented since. This is mostly because of its versatility, its speed and performance which is unmatchable in terms of features and functionality and the reason why many computer users are loath to trade their old faithful desktops for any new device.

The desktop PC can still be bought at competitive prices with such a plethora of them being available at any retail or online store on the web. One of its greatest benefits is its capability of being customized and upgraded which is something you don’t see in most of the new types of computers flooding the market these days. What is even better is that any desktop computer user can easily find parts and accessories for his machine without having to take it to the manufacturer. They are easy to replace and any computer repairman will undertake to carry out the repairs which cannot be said of the laptop or any of its cousins.

While the desktop computer can be bought in any make or model what is important is to check the operating system which is the foundation of any computer. The smooth running of your machine depends on its operating system which will also decide the stability and functionality of your computer and the type of software you wish to use.  If you ever decide to replace your old machine but don’t wish to get out of the desktop PC functions, your best option is to go for an all in one PC especially if the only needs you have   is to e-mail,   do some shopping and chat with friends.

Although the all in one PC has been there for sometime, no one spoke about it until the Apple iMac hit the streets. Now this is a thing of beauty and anyone replacing his desktop shouldn’t have to think long and hard because the Apple iMac is the all in one PC that you might be satisfied with after your faithful desktop computer. It can do everything your old PC did and looks absolutely marvelous with its slim LED screen. It’s even better if you can use it with a wireless keyboard and mouse and you will have more space on your table as well.

But it does have its drawbacks with the first one being its high price. If you can get over that, don’t forget there are some issues regarding upgrading and gaming because these are not things that can be easily carried out in the all in one PC. Another negative point is the accessibility of the ports which are not as conveniently placed as in a desktop computer tower. As beautiful as the screen is, you can’t replace it or the computer because they’re integrated as one unit and if one component becomes unusable you will have to throw it on the garbage dump or loose it somewhere in your wardrobe.

4  General Category / General / The ease of getting our work completed with computers on: November 05, 2012, 11:28:53 pm
Modern digital inventions such as computers and printers have made it possible for people to complete their tasks speedily and efficiently. When computers were first introduced it was only possible to carry out simple tasks such as creating a word document or checking for one’s e-mails because of the lack of multiple features.  The heavy tasks in an office however had to have computers that were capable of accomplishing more serious tasks and it was for this that the workstation computer was designed.

A workstation computer is one that is connected to a server or a mainframe and had more capabilities than the desktop those days.  But the modern desktop is equally powerful and comes with all the features that enable it to carry out similar tasks as the workstation. Although it comes nowhere close to multimedia as far as gaming is concerned, a workstation computer can be upgraded because most of them have inbuilt graphics and a sound card.

Whatever computer you use will have a motherboard which is where you have all the important components located and connected to each other. The quality of the chipset fixed to the motherboard will affect the performance of your computer to a great extent. Therefore, even if you’re on a tight budget, cheap motherboard is not recommended because it will have a low quality chipset. It’s better to cut down costs from another angle rather than going for a cheap motherboard which will provide a negative performance in the long term.

The hard drive is where all the data we input is stored permanently and if necessary can be  replaced or upgraded for which the computer case has to be opened to take out the old drive. It is also possible to install a secondary drive for additional storage without removing the old drive; but you will have to find a location for the second drive. You might also have to find a matching cable to install the new internal hard drive since the old cable attachments might not be compatible with the new drive.

Graphics and sound are playing a major role in movies; video and computer games and the need for high quality Graphics card and sound card  have arisen in a big way since of recent. Although most motherboards have built in graphics to handle two dimensional images which are more than adequate for the creation of simple documents and browsing the web, some tasks need more power in their graphics card for which a separate printed circuit board is required. Similarly, a basic sound card is also a printed circuit board that facilities the input and output of audio signals through which we get to hear music, speeches, movie dialogs etc. on our computers.

The new LED Monitor which was introduced recently has caught on very fast with LED screens providing  perfect pictures for those who love watching movies or playing  the latest games on their computers. The backlighting of the LED Monitor, which is an improved version of LCD back lighting that was in use earlier, offer many benefits to the consumer while helping save space and energy in the long term.
5  Ponies / General Discussion / Types of Denims on: October 02, 2012, 12:55:56 am
Some renowned brands have a history past. They were discovered in a dramatic way and never looked back. The field of fabric has been prevalent for quite some time. In some countries, which have sound agriculture, textile industry plays a pivotal part in the economics. The foreign reserves collected in this way are sufficient to aid the people of that country.

The old names in the vast circle of textile and fabrics have improved the quality and standard of their product since the formation of their brand. The makers of denim jeans were cautious when it came to manufacturing quality jeans. Being a renowned brand, it has not lived upon its name; instead it has strived extremely hard to stay in the top position. It has achieved a high status by introducing several types of denims, which are dry denim, salvage denim, color denim, and stretch denim.

Dry denim is a unique type of denim which is not washed after being color during the process of production.

It is easy to identify this type of denim; the observer can see the faded parts on the jeans, especially on those areas that receive the most stress. Salvage denim is the type of jeans that includes a natural looking edge on the inside. To the buyers, it is usually displayed in the rough state. Salvage denim is also easy recognizable as the edges become visible after some time. This type of denim is most preferable as it entertains a rough look; the most highly demanding factor which is prevailing in the society. Teenagers like it rough. The decency in the society has gone far away, now is the time of innovation!

The color denim can be divided into two parts; sulfur dying and indigo dying. Sulfur dying specialized in making black color jeans, though denims of other shades like grey, pink, rust, green, and mustard may also be included. Indigo dying is expert in producing jeans of the shades of blue. Lastly, stretch denim contains some stretch contents which allow small degree of stretching of the pair of jeans.

 There is a high demand for women jeans. The women or girls that are slim and smart desire for modern fashion.skinny Jeans are the simple solution to all of their inquiries. Apart from the vast variety of jeans for men, the manufacturers of jeans, now, are also focusing upon women products. There is considerable variety in skinny jeans. Like men’s jeans, colors on a wide scale are available to female consumers.

Keeping in view of the fast pace of today’s world, online shopping for jeans is also available. Jeans Australiais one such location that allows online purchase of jeans and many other products.  Thus, jeans are gaining rapid fame in the society. People are getting attracted to the phenomenon of jeans, especially denim jeans, due to which its demand has increased to a great extent.

7  General Category / General / A Few Things to consider when opening a Restaurant on: September 24, 2012, 04:04:24 am
If you’re thinking of opening a restaurant, one of your major concerns will be finding restaurant furniture in keeping with the ambience of your business.  It’s extremely important to decide beforehand what your customers can expect when they enter your restaurant and this should be the base on which you should build your business and the furniture you buy. If yours is going to be modern in outlook, style and design, there’s no point in buying classic, traditional furniture which is what you should be buying if you plan to open a high class restaurant that would be the ideal setting for elite customers.

You must always keep in mind that your customers will expect the same standard of service you have input into the design and style of the restaurant and this should be your guide when buying   furniture such as dining chairs and tables as well as other   restaurant furniture.  You can make things easier for yourself by identifying the type of customers you expect to be eating at your place; the type of food they will be expecting; whether its regular or gourmet; how elegant or cheesy looking your furniture is; all of which will go a long way in making your restaurant a great success or a deplorable failure.

The interior design of the restaurant will also play a major role when deciding on the furniture.  The right type of furniture installed in the bar, dining area, and lounge not to mention the lobby will have an impact on the success or failure of your venture.  People dining at a high end restaurant will expect to be seated at tables and chairs that look exceptionally grand and blending with the rest of the décor in the place. Such dining chairs should be suitably upholstered in quality fabric while the rest of the restaurant furniture such as bar stools and lounge chairs should be in keeping with the general theme of the place.
 
If there’s going to be an outdoor dining area, much attention should be given to the furniture you plan to install; such as the quality of the chairs and other outdoor furniture. If it’s to be an easy going laid back kind of place, you can get away by using café chairs instead of heavy, elegant furniture. Even café chairs can be bought from the cheap and cheerful to those that are upholstered in expensive fabrics such as faux or real leather. Once again what you buy will depend on the customers you hope to attract to your restaurant and the atmosphere you wish to create.

A roadside café for instance will be the ideal place for café chairs that are cheap yet capable of providing a cheery atmosphere that is conducive to a casual get together for tea and cakes or for the young to congregate for snacks and coke.  Such a place would look just right with brightly colored plastic café chairs with chrome frames that can withstand a great deal of wear and tear. Just make sure that the chairs you buy are suitable for the inclement weather since they will mostly be used as outdoor furniture.

8  General Category / General / Various methods can be used to buy furniture on: July 22, 2012, 03:36:54 am
Moving into a new house can be very exciting because not only are you getting to start a new life and make new friends, you also get the opportunity to buy furniture for your home which is definitely something that most home owners look forward to. Unlike in the days gone by where buying furniture meant   walking into the one or two furniture shops in your locality and choosing what was most suitable, today, there’s such a vast range to choose from in keeping with your lifestyle, budget and your home.

There are also many different methods you can use to buy furniture which gives you ample scope to pick and choose and also decide whether you buy your items from a furniture store, from an auction or by browsing the internet where there’s such a wide selection that you will no doubt be spoilt for choice.  A furniture store is still a popular a place for most people because you not only get to look and touch the various pieces and see if they are well made or not but also get an idea as to how the furniture will look in your home since most furniture showrooms tend to display their items in a mock up of a bedroom or living room.
 
Another advantage in a furniture store is that you get to measure the furniture so that you will know for sure whether they will fit into your rooms, which is extremely important if you’re moving into a home with limited space. Being able to interact with sales staff on a one to one basis also provides an opportunity to find out about the material out of which the furniture is made of and any other queries you may have about the stuff you need for your home.

Another very popular option to pick up a few bargains is by visiting auction rooms that have regular auctions of general furniture.Those keen on getting cheap furniture will find this a better alternative to visiting a store because at auctions its more than possible to buy quality furniture that has been used with care and well maintained at less than half the price you would have to pay for brand new furniture.  Auctions are also great places to look for antique or replica furniture that look almost the same as the original but can be bought for a much lesser amount.
 
Buying replica furniture from an auction can be tedious at times especially if you are interested in a piece that has also caught the attention of half the people in the room. Most often the pieces on sale are listed beforehand so that you can be prepared to bid for the piece you’re interested in and also be ready with your limit because bids for popular pieces can rise much above what you might be able to afford and you should therefore know when to stop.

Another modern preference is to shop online in view of the enormous number of websites that sell all kinds of furniture.  It’s always better to buy a few small items such as a bar stool or some    cheap furniture the first time to check out the service. Make sure you check the reputation of the site and read the reviews and feedback left by previous customers so that you will not be duped into buying inferior furniture. Online furniture stores are also great to buy retro furniture which can sometimes be difficult to find in a regular furniture store.
9  General Category / General / Computers Now a Days on: July 15, 2012, 12:05:08 am
If the speedy evolution of computers is anything to go by, you can never say what new gadget will be out in the market tomorrow. Who would have ever thought the very first gigantic computers would give way to the mobile models of today not to mention the various new features and ease of  using them being widely accepted by each and everyone across the world.

When the desktop was first introduced it was considered a marvel and although some people looked at it with a great deal of suspicion, it wasn’t long before the majority  wanted to learn how to operate it and suddenly the rush was on for everyone to buy their own desktop for personal use. With the PC gaining widespread acceptance the size of the computer started to shrink while its power increased and very soon these almost brainy machines were taking over the world.

Those early day computers looked ungainly with their bulky CRT monitors, and huge towers, that were all part of a package which also consisted of a keyboard and a mouse Although the personal computer has not yet been dumped as obsolete, very few people can be seen using them with more and more new users turning their sights to the Laptop and Notebook, mostly because of the ease of carrying them everywhere and also because no one wanted to be identified as an “old nerd” who used a pre-historic desktop computer.

It was quite sometime after the desktop that the Laptop came on the scene and everyone was going bananas over its futuristic design, its size and its portability calling it one of the greatest inventions ever. It was considered “cool” to hug a sleek looking laptop to your bosom and the obvious glances of envy from onlookers when it was opened in public was enough to keep the owner basking in its glory for days.

The Notebook followed close on its heels and apart from its cute size and not having a built in CD Rom, there was hardly any difference between the two and being light of weight and smaller than a Laptop, it was considered an ultra portable device that was ideal for travel. Next it was the turn of the Netbook and everyone was going gaga over it because it was the perfect computer for web browsing and light work while being relatively inexpensive and had a very long battery life. Its future however seems to be very uncertain as a result of its ridiculously low 1GB RAM and crammed keyboard being rejected by most consumers looking for something more wholesome.

It is in this backdrop that one should look at the All in One PC  which has multiple components within one unit and can be simply   plugged into a power source.  Its main disadvantage however is that it cannot be upgraded or customized since its internal hardware is located at the rare of the visual display unit and permanently attached to the motherboard.

Finally we come to the Mobile PC which continues to flourish with Apple being far ahead of its closest competitor in the field. The Mobile PC better known as the Tablet PC is also a laptop computer but with more functions and a movable touch screen.  Whenever the touch screen is not available a digital pen can be used to write on the screen where handwriting automatically converts to text. If nothing else, they’re smart and neat and the ideal computer for those on the go all the time.
10  General Category / General / Vital Components of all Computers on: July 14, 2012, 11:58:30 pm
When you plan on buying a new computer, the most important decision you will have to make is how good your Processor is for the work you have in mind. You will have to consider its speed, multitasking abilities and its performance as well as your budget when deciding on the Processor because no matter what else you add to your computer,   unless your Central Processing Unit can offer you quality service it will not be of much use to you.

Whether you buy a Laptop   or a Netbook, first check what kind of processor it has. The two most popular processors in the market are Intel and AMD with Intel leading the market at present. The tasks you intend performing will also have an impact on the CPU and if they involve lots of 3D graphics and a large cache to diminish memory load, your best option is an Intel Core i7 while the AMD   Phenom Line   is said to be best among their processors.

Buying a computer today is not as uncomplicated as it used to be earlier because of the wide variety available. The choices are many and you get to choose from desktops, laptops, Notebooks, Netbooks and iTablets which can be very confusing for the uninitiated.  If you prefer a Laptop computer or the smaller, lighter Netbook Computer you might be thinking of their portability features.  The latter has more battery life but less processing power even though its more than adequate for simple tasks such as word processing,  and web browsing. Being small in size the Netbook computer is the ultimate device for portability.

The Laptop Computer which is also known as the Notebook is also portable but   bigger than the Netbook  while having more processing power similar to that of the Desktop. It has its own screen and built in keyboard and track pad which replaces the mouse.   The modern laptop computer also has exciting new features such Blue Ray disc players, and surround sound among others provided you’re prepared to dole out a considerable amount of money.

The other component of importance is the Motherboard which provides a platform for the smaller components in a computer to be connected to each other. Most new computers have the motherboard as well as RAM and the Graphics Card built into the machine making it possible for manufacturers to design smaller motherboards. The earlier ones had to be large in size due to the presence of multiple ports to connect peripheral devices apart from the larger size of the CPU as well as the RAM, Video card and Graphics Card.

The vast improvement in RAM has also made a considerable difference to the overall performance of the computer because unless there is quality RAM the CPU will not provide a smooth performance no matter how fast it is. The new type of motherboard is capable of supporting up to 8 GB RAM which enables the processor to work really fast. Similarly, a Graphics Card with high capacity provides high quality imaging. But computers   that have built in Graphics do not have more than 8 megabytes which makes it imperative for those working with graphics to use an external Graphics card through a slot in the motherboard.

11  General Category / General / Skinny Jeans: The Best Outfitting For All Seasons on: July 03, 2012, 12:23:08 am
Among all types of wearing stuff, jeans provide the widest variety to wear on. The beauty that it adds to the dress is not confined to trousers but also other suiting items like shirts, jackets and shorts. Jeans is versatile clothing equally popular all over the world and among both demographics. Skinny jeans and denim jeans are the heart favorite choice of youngsters. If you also like skinny jeans and denim jeans then be known of some pitfalls of this perpetual trend.

Classic Jeans Material
Heavy-duty cotton is often not considered suitable for stretching and moving. Rather they are more suitable for protecting skin and being outdoors. Skinny jeans bring a sense of style but at the same time the person feels a little congested while bending the knees and for that reason some individuals don’t like skinny jeans. For such people, classic skinny jeans are not an ideal choice.

The greatest advantage of Skinny Jeans is that it helps pulling extra bulge in which gives a smart and appealing look to your physique. Denim jeans don’t provide this type of built in protection.

Stretchy Jeggings
Nowadays,Denim Jeans also called denim legging or simply jegging is also prepared as a substitute to the real jeans that allows a lot of stretching for comfort. These jeans are available in a large variety of colors however they are not liked by many individuals.

For heavier builds, the emaciated material will not even out the silhouette. On the other hand, it will magnify every bump that will definitely appear shabby. If you are unable to convince yourself about this shortcoming, then choose the jeggings having real or faux pockets on the back to camouflage or create an illusion.

Colors Galore
Some fashions like colorful jeans keep changing. If you find these trends intriguing then go for darker colors so that you may wear them with any shirt. For heavier builds, skinny jeans with dark shades give slim look apart from the ordinary casual black and blue. For people with balanced figure, every color does well but as these are trends, look for a fast fashion store to avoid spending inflated amounts on fads.

Patterned Jeans
There are some other fashions introduced for skinny jeans. These fashions mostly come as patterns sewn in. For instance, the motorcycle effect is very trendy these days where different patterns of colored jeans are patterned near the knee area. This helps creating an illusion of motor sport pant along with providing extra protection near and around the joints. Sometimes skinny jeans fail to bring the focus on their legs that some individuals expect. If it happens so, then such people must try denim jeans.

Whatever are the trends and whatever are the circumstances, skinny jeans remain an outfitting choice. Spending too much on fads is not wise, look for the stores which keep their stocks updated with the latest fashioned jeans. Also take help from the internet and check the latest updates on the famous online stores.
