These days there are many distractions that can get a driver of a car, truck or whatever distracted. Everything from messing around with your stereo to checking Facebook on a Smartphone can cause a driver to take his or her eyes off of the road while driving which in many cases can lead to an unexpected accident. Another thing that can cause a driver not to have their eyes on the road is tired and sleepy driver. Many people drive when they are very sleepy and have a hard time keeping their eyes open and paying attention to the road ahead of them. Well there is a new Australian company called Seeing Machines that has developed a new technology that will help distracted and sleepy drivers keep their eyes where they should be, on the road ahead of them. Seeing Machines of Australia has developed a driver sensing system with an infrared camera mounted to the vehicles dashboard that works with software running in the car to evaluate whether or not the driver of that vehicle has their eyes on the road ahead. This sensing system evaluates the drivers head position, their eyes blink rate and even theirREAD MORE !
Well in this installment of “My Featured Website”, I thought I would feature Newegg.com. One reason I thought I would feature this website is because I love electronics of all kinds, especially computers and Newegg has tons of awesome things for an electronics enthusiast to check out. If you love electronics, especially then this is a MUST SEE website. Newegg has been around well over a decade and is one of the top online electronics retailers, specializing in computer hardware and software. I have been shopping at Newegg for quite a while and they always have great prices on the products they carry. What sets them apart is how great their customer service is and how well they operate. If you ever order anything from them, it is shipped out very quickly and very well packaged. This means a lot since they sell a lot of computer hardware that doesn’t respond well to being handled roughly. I have never received anything that had any damage of any kind. Kudos to their packaging department! Recently I had decided to upgrade my RAM since my sweet Lenovo laptop computer was lagging a bit due to me using way too manyREAD MORE !
My third installment of “My Featured Website” is about a website called eGeek Universe (www.egeekuniverse.com). On eGeek Universe there are all kinds or articles, stories, tips and other information about electronics, mostly consumer electronics like cell phones, MP3 players, tablets, laptops and things along those lines. Instead of just providing you with information you can get on other websites or blogs, this website provides it’s site visitors with a more down to Earth way of presenting the information they share with their site visitors. I have been to thousands of websites and blogs that were covering electronics in one form or another and they all seem to be kind of “BLAH” as far as how they present their information, kind of like their target audience are robots or something. Most of the information online can be found on many different websites so I think it’s best for a site to try to provide that information in a better way. That way if their readers enjoy reading their articles, stories and posts they are more likely to come back to that website or blog and maybe even bookmark the site. Who knows, if someone enjoys a site enough they mightREAD MORE !
Like many people out there on the internet, I started my website / blog as just a way to express some thoughts, ideas, viewpoints and whatever else I wanted to share with the world. As time has gone by and the number of people who come and visit my site has increased I had pondered the idea of putting up some advertising on my site. I thought that if I did decide to put up some advertising on my site I wasn’t intending to do it to get rich or make a living or anything but just to maybe help cover the costs of my web hosting service for the site and possibly the renewal fees for my domain name. I had many things cross my mind about putting ads on my site so I thought I would share those thoughts and ideas so that if someone else had those same thoughts and ideas the information here might help them to make the decision or weather or not to place advertising on their website or blog. My first thought about placing advertising on this site was that I didn’t want this site to come off as just anotherREAD MORE !
I thought I would write an article about domain names (Internet Addresses) and web hosting service since they are both something I know about. Now don’t misunderstand me, I don’t know everything there is to know about domain names and web hosting but I do know more than the average person does. I have owned many domain names over the last decade and a half and have learned quite a bit about them. The same goes for web hosting service. In this article I will share some of my knowledge and experiences about these two things with all of you reading this article. First let me start off by discussing domain names since you will need a domain name or names before you will need a web hosting provider. If you decide you want to start your own website or blog and you want to take it seriously as well as have others take it seriously you will need to buy your own domain name. You can get a free sub-domain name if you use the free hosting providers like weebly.com, blogger.com and other similar type of sites but if you want people to take you more seriously thenREAD MORE !
