Wireless Power Transmission: real available technology and marketing advantages

ubeamWireless energy transmission for remote charging is one of the most strategic key factor for the development of a new generation of tech devices in the near future. Few years ago some futuristic thinkers forecasted the possibility of wireless energy transmission between far places. In particular the academic community was interested in energy transmission between the planet earth and orbiting satellites equipped with solar power stations. 
This long range power transmission technology would radically change the energetic, economic and power equilibrium of our world but unfortunately, at the moment, this technology is not available. 
On the contrary, near range power transmission is something near the corner. 
After long researches an USA company  is launching the first generation commercial version of a wireless power transmitter with ultrasound that will allow to recharge (for the moment) mobile phones in a range of 15 feet (4.5 meters) just using a special cover. 
Fifteen feet are not a long range nor a medium one but the important thing is that it is contactless and that 15 feet start to be an interesting distance. 
So interesting that a big coffee shop chain as Starbucks  is considering to introduce these remote charging devices in all its shops. 
In this way all the customers will be able to automatically and freely charge their mobile devices as soon as they enter into the coffee shop. A good added value considering how much energy our devices need when strongly used during the day. And consequently, for many people, a good reason to prefer a store to another one. A potentially viral added value as well as a magnetic marketing strategy!
Last but not least, it must be considered that the success of this kind of technology operations is determined by costs. At the moment it is not possible to find any information about prices for the mobile device covers at the end consumer side. If the end users price for covers will be high, the huge, positive effects of a partnership with a big player as Starbucks couldn’t be enough without some kind of tech fashion pivot. 
Good luck uBeam! You have the right idea!

YouTube changed its website parameters and DownloadHelper immediately released an updated, on the fly, version

Sunday night the (on the fly) updated version of DownloadHelper was released. After just few days of malfunctioning all the features offered by this add-on for Firefox are back again.

In particular it is  possible to download again all the videos to have a local copy to watch when we are not able to use the internet.

The team of DdownloadHelper was professional and fast to solve this annoying problem which was caused by changes operated by YouTube on its website. For all the people who has not already used this add-on before, I remind you that DownloadHelper is, in my opinion, the most advanced tool to navigate YouTube videos, download contents for evaluation and directly convert the format from flv to mp4 or other video format you prefer.

For the record, this problem caused the same malfunctioning to all the software with similar features. In particular, you could have problems when using Gmediafinder for Linux (at least we have had this kind of matter during the past weekend). AddThis

TeamViewer: Control remoto para Linux y Android

Ante de nada, quiero disculparme con todos los seguidores de Galigio por la falta de Post en Castellano, espero poder volver a contribuir con mi granito de arena y compartir mis ideas. Bueno volviendo a lo nuestro, os quiero hablar del programa TeamViewer.

Hace tiempo estuve mirando para poder efectuar el aceso remoto entre mi PC y el PC de un amigo, ambos con Linux; desafortunadamente hay que reconocer que es posible pero no de una forma muy rápida y sencilla, el programa LogmeIn que era una de los disponible funcionaba solo con Windows y MAC también. Afortunadamente hace unos meses estuve investigando otra vez y pude averiguar que TeamViewer está disponible para Linux, Mac, Windows y también para Smartphones. La versión para Linux está disponible en diferentes paquetes: deb 32/64 bit, rpm 32/64 bits y también tar.gz; para Smartphone está disponible para Android, iPhone e iPad. Yo que uso Kubuntu he instalado la versión deb y también la he instalado en mi Smartphone Android.

Tengo que reconocer que funciona muy muy bien, desde mi teléfono puedo entrar en el escritorio de mi PC sin ningún problema y funciona muy rápido sin quedarse colgado. También he hecho una prueba entrando en el portátil de mi hermana mientra ella estaba en su casa y yo en la mía, todo muy bien, he podido efectuar una asistencia remota en su portátil e ayudarla con algún problemita que tenia. En fin, puede que no os cuente nada nuevo pero os aconsejo de probar esta aplicación porque seguro que siempre pude venir bien para diferentes usos. os dejo el enlace a su pagina Web.
