By as early as the second half of 2018, Microsoft Corporation has plans to release a line of low-cost Surface tablets. The goal of this new line is to provide a cheaper device than Apple Inc.’s iPad. This is no new effort by Microsoft. In 2012, the software company launched its consumer-oriented hardware promotion, with the introduction of the original Surface RT. At the time, the starting price for the device was $499. After receiving sub-par reviews by both consumers and product reviewers, Microsoft moved on to the much pricier Surface Pro.

This line of tablets was well received and most likely contributed to the demand of Apple’s “Pro” iPad, which launched in 2015.

The new tablets will be equipped with 10-inch screens, which is smaller than the standard 12-inch screen of the Surface Pro laptop line, but about equal to the standard iPad. The new Surface tablet will have a price point of around $400 and will feature round edges like the iPad. USB-C connectivity will be used, which is a first for the Surface line tablets, along with a new charging and syncing standard that is used by latest smartphones.

The tablets are anticipated to be almost twenty percent lighter than the higher end models but will have around four hours left of battery life. The current Surface Pro model has around thirteen and a half hours of battery for one single charge. It has been speculated that Intel Corporation will provide the main processor and graphic cards for the new tablets, although representatives at both companies have declined to comment or confirm.
Apple has sold almost 44 million iPads which has generated almost $20 billion in revenue just these past 4 quarters. The entire Surface hardware business for Microsoft has generated $4.4 billion in the same period. Market research shows that Microsoft has sold almost 725,000 tablets in the first quarter of 2018, which is an increase of 1.8 percent in comparison to early last year. Apple has sold 9.1 million iPads in the same period. Microsoft has plans to release multiple Surface models, include a 64 and 128 gigabyte version that connects to LTE networks and running Windows 10 Pro.

This network interface card’s job is to connect a computer to a local network or internet. It does this by creating electrical signals that are both compatible with the computer and the network nearby that it connects to. Basically, all PCs, both desktop, and laptops have a network interface card built in. The card is held securely in the computer by the bracket. This bracket can also have a cable jack or antenna on it with an indicator light that the card is inserted correctly and working.
The most common adapter has a number of computer chips used to process signals from the network to the PC. These computer chips are in a plastic circuit board that can be injected into the actual PC and connecting to the motherboard. There are several types of network interface cards, one of the more recent ones work with Wi-Fi wireless networks through an antenna to send signals.

Not all are wireless, there are also ones that use actual Ethernet cables to connect the computer and internet. Ethernet cables have a plug that connects that network card and the internet as one.
These connections transfer waves and signals to communicate which website you are trying to access and turns them into the data you see on your screen. To put it simply, the card is a middleman for everything you are trying to access on your PC.  The circuit boards are automatically programmed when placed in your computer. The make and model are used to properly pass all of the data specifically for your network. Without programming, these cards do not work.

Cryptocurrency has been the latest fathom as millions of users adopt the newest way of currency for personal gain. The market is growing as more investors invest into the market but are not limited to the way the market can grow, as it allows “mining”. Producing more cryptocurrency is nothing like counterfeiting dollars or any other currency but adding to the market by a greater generation of electrical power. There are three main ways of mining that have been used by minors are with a CPU, GPU, and ASICs type method.

Most effective to produce substantial amounts of coins have been mined by the ASICs method. Having advantages and disadvantages to the ASICs mining process, it reigns supreme due to its precision capability. This ASIC is so powerful that according to they suggest that,” A Bitcoin ASIC can calculate hashes 100,000 times faster than even the best Central Processing Unit.”  They are programmed to be very centralized towards a coin that allows only for one ASICs unit to be used for a single hash algorithm. Along with many positives, the ASICs may generate, it also requires lots of energy to produce their hashes, which can be very costly including loud sounds from its cooling fan.

Another very popular way but not as effective as ASIC mining is the GPU mining method. This method is a way to be able to mine using a Graphics Processing Unit originally used to transmit graphics more effectively. Due to the fact that these GPU OEMs have noticed the current use for the product, they have increased their prices tremendously and offered discounts or incentives for users that are using it for other uses other than mining.

Coins mining with CPU is not as efficient as ether or other method and has been deemed obsolete from some coins as it is outworked by ASIC units. If and when CPUs are allowed to mine a certain coin, it takes away from ASIC potentials.

Well known information technology equipment company, Fujitsu, has created a mini sensor that is powered by a solar cell. This miniature sensor will help aid LPWA wireless transmission. This newly introduced device measures at 82x24x6mm, and the company boasts that this is the smallest sensor device that supports LPWA in the world.

Conveniently, the sensor does not require replacement batteries. Data for both humidity and temperature that is collected by the sensor is able to be transmitted to a Sigfox base station that is as far as 7 km away.

LPWA in recent days has been in the spotlight due to it being a wireless technology that is able to directly transmit data to the cloud while consuming low power across wide areas. Fujitsu Electronics has been able to create power control technology that is able to command the timing of LPWA signal transmissions in real time. This controlling is based on temperature data that has been collected by the temperature sensor.

This milestone in technology will allow for signal transmissions to be carried out only when activation voltage, which may change with temperature, is boosted, which will help to prevent the voltage from falling under the minimum operating voltage for the LPWA module.

With this efficiency in power, it is possible to allow variation in power utilized by the wireless circuit or power created by solar cells because of temperature. This will remove the need for any excess energy storage elements that were in the past required to react to power variation, allowing for the miniaturization of the sensor device with the smallest power storage elements needed.

The data that is collected can be seen through Fujitsu’s Cloud Service K5 loT Platform, which is Fujitsu’s loT platform service for data utilization. The platform has received Sigfox Ready Program for loT PaaS certification as a platform that can connect to the Sigfox cloud. This ensures that the sensor data is easily obtained in the cloud simply by setting the sensor devices. This will allow for maintenance-free installation and management of the loT systems, which will speed up the procedure of digitalization.

As a Fujitsu sensor parts supplier, as well as an IT parts supplier in general, ASAP IT Technology has a goal of providing out-of-the-box parts procurement solutions. ASAP-IT Technology seeks to help in the purchasing of information technology hardware, with an emphasis on networking and telecommunications equipment.
