A Merry Mix of Technology and Advancement

If you’re a person of present tense, you would certainly agree that the world is becoming more advanced with each passing day. In a blink of an eye, old typewriters have been replaced by modern laptops and computers, analog and wired mobile phones have been replaced by sleek and smart designs of wireless and new generation phones, and even the way you communicate with your loved ones no longer necessitates the use of overseas calls, but the modern communication brought by electronic mails, chats, and webcams.

Who would ever think that come 20th century, technology will soar and rule? These days, the use of modern devices and machineries has even made the power of technology more influential. These advancements generate a lot of benefits to common people who have gradually become used to what modern technology brings – convenience, pleasure, knowledge and information.

To cite some of the best things that technology has brought into our lives so to speak, here are few of the many advancements and developments we’ve delightedly reaped so far:

o If you’re searching for substantial information, the Internet is there to assist you of your every need. Although books are still the greatest source of knowledge, it is impressive to note that the internet provides a faster research through few clicks of the mouse.

o If you want to get in shape, but abhors the thought of major dieting and exercise, the modern advancement provided by laser treatments are indeed amazing inventions of both science and technology.

o If you want to simply enjoy life right at your fingertips, the coming out of wireless technologies, mp3 players, iPods, Bluetooth devices, spy devices, flash storage, and text and video messaging among others absolutely brings out a major influence and difference in your life weigh against the kind of lifestyle you lead decades back.

Technology

What is technology? I bet that everyone you ask will give you a different definition, depending on the things he/she uses. I’m sure your mother will tell you that technology makes her life easy because of all the gadgets that were invented, your younger brother will say technology means latest generation computers and high detailed games, you will probably say that it is your mobile phone. I will say for me technology is semi-cocked food. It was probably the best invention ever. But it’s just me.

So, we have established how we, the mortals, see technology. But wouldn’t be really interesting to see what it really is? Well it deals with how a species customs and knowledge of instruments meant to ease the life and how it affects its capability to fit into the environment. This is a general definition.

We, the humans see it as a result of the interaction of different sciences and engineering.

Technology is one of those terms that actually cannot be defined. It cam mean everything from a main board to a way of organizing a factory. It can refer to practically everything, because all of the things around us were, at a certain point technological breakdowns.

How can we use it? As such, in specific areas like “medical technology”, describing only one aspect of science or in expressions like “state-of-the-art-technology”, which is by far more abstract.

We have used technology for as far as we existed. It is in our blood to discover all kinds of things meant to ease our life. And if they do not exist, you can bet wee will invent them. Starting with the discovery of fire and with the adaptation of all the things we find in nature to our needs and ending with the World Wide Web and the space satellites launched into the orbit, we managed to turn everything in our favor. And that is technology. Well, as our ancestors used to say, since the invention of the wheel we’ve learned a great deal about controlling our environment.

Technology is every ware around us, permitting us to interact at a global scale. Imagine that! With just a click you can see your friend from the other side of the world in real time. Not just talk to her, but see her, see what she does and how she reacts.

But technology brought upon us a great curse too. We didn’t invent only good things. There are a lot of destructive gadgets that do not ease our existence, but only complicate it, or end it. Bang-Bang! And that’s not your kid’s gun, but a real one that can end your life in a heart beat.

All in all technology is what makes the world go round every day. Well, not exactly. Magic, or the laws of nature make that. Technology is everything else, all the things that can’t be blamed on magic. Ant that’s about 99,9% of the things that you use in life. So, VIVA Technology.

OLED Vs LED Technology

OLED (Organic Light Emiting Diode) technology is truly amazing and many manufacturers speak for a while about the ability to launch large diagonal HDTVs that use it. It is one of the reasons why there was so much interest when LG launched its new 55 inch OLED TV at CES 2012. It is gorgeous, both exterior and interior.

You will not find it in the nearest store at the moment I am writing this article (March 2012), but very soon you will and then you would better know the difference between OLED and LED TV on the market today. However, don’t get me wrong, LED’s are amazing too.

First, what is the difference? The main difference is that OLED TVs do not need a light source (backlight). They produce their own light, with the help of electrical current passing through the organic diodes. On LED TVs, the diode light created passes through a liquid crystal display. So although it eliminates the traditional light source, there are several layers that increase the thickness.

What happens when you compare an OLED TV with a normal LED TV?

Thickness

LG 55 inches OLED HDTV is not only the largest OLED TV at the moment, but is also the thinnest and lightest TV. Although he is 55 inches, it weighs only 7.5 kg and profile measuring is less than 4mm. Instead, even the largest thin LED TV does not measure less than 30 mm.

Contrast and black level

Adjustable LED TVs use technology to create dark areas. This means that black levels are dark but they can never be truly black. OLED screen may close areas needed depending on the scene. Besides, OLED TVs boast infinite contrast ratio, showing even the smallest details with the greatest accuracy and clarity. Together gives you the best experience. Because this we cannot compare the contrast in those two technologies.

Color Accuracy

Again, because OLED technology emits its own light, OLED TVs can create virtually any color in the spectrum. Not as is the case LED TVs which have to pass light through a matrix color LCD to produce the color. The process of creating color for OLED TV’s is much easier and more accurate, resulting in a much richer experience. LEDs do a good job but OLEDs are always on top.

Viewing angle

Nothing can competes with OLED technology when it comes to viewing angles. Viewed from any angle and any position played OLED colors remain the same. LED technology represented a significant advance compared to normal LCDs, but you cannot compare with OLED technology.

Truly Green

LED TVs are quite energy efficient. Based on low power consumption, the packaging is easier, technology is more environmentally friendly than CCFL or LCD. But it cannot do what OLED technology can make. Because it does not need a light source, OLED technology uses significantly less energy during operation and standby. In addition, due to low weight and small size, the packaging is lighter and transportation costs are lower.
