Yesterday and today (part 3)
As the computers starting to get smaller and more powerful, more and more sophisticated languages and applications were introduced.
Then the concept of connecting computers and share important information and resources was born..... it was the beginning of what is known today as the Internet. The Internet was the work of dozens of pioneering scientists, programmers and engineers who each developed new features and technologies that eventually become the “information superhighway” we know today.
On 6 August 1991, the World Wide Web became known to the world. In 1993 the World Wide Web was free for everyone to use and develop, with no fees payable – a key factor in the huge impact it would soon have on the world. Some of the applications that are popular in today's world are : Face book, LinkedIn, Twitter, Instagram, You tube, Skype, etc.....
The Web has become a part of our everyday lives – something we access at home, on the move, on our phones and on TV. It’s changed the way we communicate and has been a key factor in the way the Internet has transformed the global economy and societies around the world.
Telephone and Social Media (part 3)
Cell phones can send and receive calls without wire connections of any kind. It does that by using electromagnetic radio waves to send and receive the sounds that would normally travel down wires.
The microphone in the handset converts the sounds of your voice into a corresponding pattern of electrical signals. The phone turns these signals into strings of numbers. The numbers are converted into a radio wave and send out from the phone's antenna and races through the air until it reaches the nearest cell phone post.
The post receives the signals and passes them to a base station called cell. From the base station the calls are routed to their destination.
The network enables you to reach the person you want by dividing the land in a hexagonal areas, each area contains its own post or base station. These base stations pick the signal of your phone and send it to a base station near the desired destination. if you are traveling ether by bus, train or any other means your phone switches base stations without dropping or interrupting your call.
Cell phones have changed the way the world connects, people use their mobiles more than their landlines phones. Cell phones are also used in several different ways, at the beginning were used entirely for voice conversations and sending short text messages, purely for occasional emergency use and still remains a popular reason for owning one.
Today, smartphones are everywhere and people use them for social media, social media marketing, emailing, browsing the web, downloading music, and running all kinds of apps. Today smartphones are essentially pocket computers that just happen to make phone calls.
