Celebrating Women’s Day with Technology

Women’s Day is not a day in which we will look at the women who have the knowledge and skill to use technology rather we will look into how some of this world’s earliest technological achievements have a direct relation to women and the role they play.

For example, let us take the example of Ada Lovelace. Who was she? She was the daughter of Lord Byron, who made notes on the analytical engine created by Charles Babbage. It was these notes that led to the creation of the first algorithm that could be used on a machine. Throughout this article, we will look into some of the main women who played an important role in the world of technology.

Sheryl Sandberg is one of the main players in Facebook that allowed it to become the giant it is now. She left Google in 2008 at the VP of Global Online Sales
and Operations at Google posts and joined the Facebook organization in 2008. When she entered the company, she brought along with their valuable experience as well as her desire to make profits. She helped turn Facebook into the multi-billion dollar company it is today and without her, who knows where they would lie.

Virginia Rometty became IBM’s first female CEO, even though it took the company some 30 odd years to do so. She became the Senior VP of the company and played an important role when they were acquiring Price waterhouse Coopers, which was thought to be a major project as the two companies varied in culture.

Marissa Mayer became Google’s first female engineer. She stuck by Google from the very beginning and now is the company’s VP of Location and Local Services. This is thought to be the bloodline for the company’s search business, which is advertising.

Many people are not aware of the fact that women play such a pivotal role in the technology arena, possessing some of the most important and senior roles in major companies. Without them, where would the world be?

Tips for Buying a Monitor

For your computer, it is important that you get a monitor that appeals and offers you a great visual experience. It is the most important part of your entire computer setup that is, of course after the PC itself. Throughout this article, we will look into the different aspects of buying the perfect monitor to complete your computer system.

Technology is the very first thing you should be looking into. These days, there are so many options in terms of technology that you can get. Most commonly used, are flat screens of course, but these flat screens can vary in technology. LCDs (or Liquid Crystal Display) are the screens seen almost everywhere, primarily on laptops.

LCDs offer a sharper image display and are more efficient in terms of space. When it comes to prices, they are more expensive. Another technology has emerged now, which is called light-emitting diodes or LEDs. LEDs are little light lamps that are placed inside a screen.
They offer a more clarity and sharp images than any other type of technology out there. Another type of technology, still emerging though, is 3D monitors. 3D monitors are still on a growing trend, close to its peak. These monitors feature different images for both of your eyes, giving you a real-life experience to viewers.

Size is another consideration that needs to be made. Size is important when purchasing a computer monitor. Larger sizes will obviously be more expensive so make sure you only buy a monitor that fits your needs that is, if you have a budget constraint. Sizes can vary from 15 inches to something like 24 inches or more. The viewable size is important. This term refers to the actual size of the screen and not the entire monitor.

Another term that we are sure you have heard of is screen resolution. The screen resolution refers to the pixels that can be depicted vertically and horizontally. Many companies offer users a high resolution but there is no point in buying such a screen when you don’t require such an extensive use. Increasing the monitor size will decrease the display of the image.

These are some of the most important factors that one needs to consider when buying a computer screen. There are other factors as well but none of them are as significant on these. Keep visiting our website for more tips and how-to’s.
