Do We Need Remote-Controlled Home Appliances?

There is always some kind of conflict between people whenever some new kind of technology steps in to play. People always question, whether it is necessary or not? The same is the case with remote-controlled devices. There are a lot of people around us who raise a question that whether the remote-controlled devices are necessary or not.

Well, to be frank, the remote-controlled devices can make us lazier but that’s a decision which solely rests upon our soldiers. Apart from that, the b remote-controlled devices are pretty much useful and increase the convenience of the people. Here, we will tell you about how remote-controlled devices make our lives easier.

  1. Safety

The biggest concern that people have while accepting some new form of technology is regarding its safety. Well, in this aspect the remote-controlled home appliances like microwaves, vacuums, etc. have set a whole new standard. If a particular appliance is operated through the remote-controlled device, then the need for coming directly in contact with the appliance fades away. This means that the user can operate a particular appliance from a safe distance and this will make sure that he or she remains safe, in case the appliance malfunctions. In addition to this, the user will also remain safe from vibration, noises as well as harmful dust and debris.

  1. Ease in using

 

This is one of the reasons which might make a person lazy, but as we have already said, it’s nothing but a personal choice. The remote-controlled devices reduce the amount of fatigue that might be created in the process of making the device to function. The remote system also enables the user to multi-tasks which means that the user can do multiple things at a time instead of giving specific time to a particular appliance. In addition to this, the user can also do multiple operations using the device and that too at the same time.

  1. Increase in productivity

Well, this is one of the strongest points that work in favor of remote-controlled technology. This is the basic thing because of which development and innovation are done. Humans innovate to increase productivity than they already have. If a person works manually on something, then surely it will take more time, whereas if the same person uses a remote-controlled, device, then he doesn’t need to supervise one particular appliance and can use multiple appliances at once.

Well, these are some of the major reasons which justify the use of remote-controlled technology. There are certain points which tell about the disadvantages of remote-controlled technology. The major and the most alarming amongst these is that the remote-controlled technology will make us lazier. Well, as we have already said, this is indeed true and the possibility of this can’t be ruled out, but the advantages of remote controlled technology far outweigh the disadvantages. So, if we see the bigger picture, then the remote-controlled technology is helpful for mankind. …

Naperville Illinois Residents Without Phone Service

Naperville Illinois Residents Without Phone Service


Hundreds of customers in Naperville, Illinois remain without telephone service after crews working on an electrical upgrade project erroneously cut three telephone cables at about Noon this past Thursday. Some will be without telephone service until Monday, according to recent estimates

Naperville, Illinois is the fourth largest city in Illinois – behind Chicago, Aurora, and Rockford. Naperville is partially in DuPage County and partially in Will County. The outage covers an area several square miles in size. The outage area is bordered by 75th Street on the South, Chicago and Maple Avenues on the north, Washington Street on the west and Greene Road on the east.

AT&T; telephone company is working around the clock on repairs. Some have had their service restored already though AT&T; phone company warns that service could remain intermittent on newly restored lines for the time being.

Cellular telephone service is unaffected by the outage. The Naperville police believe most residents affected by the current outage have access to a cellular telephone – at least through a neighbor’s service.

Naperville police are making available to elderly residents a number of wireless telephones. The Naperville Police Department’s Elderly Services Team is distributing emergency mobile phones. These phones are only able to dial 9-1-1. The phones are available to be picked up at the front desk of the Naperville Police Building at 1350 Aurora Avenue.

Naperville police are warning cell phone users that they should be prepared to give 9-1-1 operators their precise location immediately. Calls to 9-1-1 using wireless technology cannot be tracked to a precise location as easily as a land line call.

According to the Naperville City Communications Manager, the current telephone outage is the worst since the May 1988 Hinsdale fire that impacted telephone service in the western suburbs for almost a month.

The outage occurred when an unidentified contractor, drilling underneath Wehrli Road in Naperville, accidentally cut a cable around Noon on Thursday. Because the cable is underneath the roadway, traffic lanes have to be closed in order to excavate the area and make the repairs.

The City has yet to address the impact of a loss of telephone service on security systems and home medical monitoring equipment such as fetal monitors that are ordinarily tied into the telephone system. No indication has been given if anyone in the affected area is relying on any such equipment.

Naperville is located 28 miles west of downtown Chicago.…

Five Smart Ways to Use Your Smartphone

Five Smart Ways to Use Your Smartphone


Every now and then we come across an unusual way to use our smartphone. Some of these are so SMART we wish we thought of that. All of these use apps that are standard with the iPhone so you don’t have to download or pay for anything out of the ordinary.

What’s Up Doc?

How often have we gone to the doctor whether for an annual physical or more importantly for a major operation? But once the nurses or physicians start spewing out instructions about prescriptions, frequency, activity, what to do, what not to do, we nod as if we know exactly what we’re supposed to do. But the minute we walk out the door we forget what they said. Now I alert my doctor that I am going to record the instructions so I don’t forget

Car 54 Where Are You?

Have you ever been in a parking lot only to forget exactly where you parked? To avoid this vehicular faux pas I now take a photo of my car spot especially if there is a floor and pillar number to know precisely where I parked. This has become so handy the only thing I have to worry about is whether I have enough battery power to ensure I can turn on my phone when it’s time to leave.

Room Service

I now take a photo of my hotel room number whenever I’m traveling. Remembering your room number at a hotel is easy to forget. You’re so excited to reach your destination and get to the pool, theme park or event that you grab your card key only to forget the room number. So take a pic – so easy! And be sure to password protect your phone in case it gets lost or stolen!

Scene of the Accident

Recently I was in a small fender bender and remembered to whip out my iPhone to take photos of the other driver’s insurance card, drivers license, scene of the accident from various angles and the dents in both cars. I sent them to both insurance companies. Those photos proved to be useful and the other driver was found to be reckless.

Magnify

The other day I had a label that had such tiny print I could not read it. So I took a clear photo of the label then stretched the image to zoom in on the text. This tip comes in handy at restaurants to read menus or to read the back of a device that is hard to move but big enough to fit a smartphone. I know folks who also use it like a mirror by having the camera turn to do a selfie.

What other unique and handy ways have you discovered to use your smartphone?

Cell Phones, Manners, Life & Death

Cell Phones, Manners, Life & Death


This afternoon I drove to Sonic. I took my kids and my dog over there in the convertible to enjoy some yummy drinks. The weather was so perfect today, and it’s these type of days that I love having my convertible.

Anyway, while we were at Sonic, enjoying our drinks, some loud, obnoxious teenager decides to have a screaming fit on his cell phone. All I heard was “verbal contract,” yada yada yada, and he was using a really tough guy accent, not a Georgia sounding one at all.

My point is he was LOUD. He was disturbing our peaceful Sonic experience. I made some comment as I was driving away like, “Thanks for ruining our enjoyment of Sonic.” Of course he didn’t hear me, he was too busy yelling on his phone.

I’m really tired of cell phones. I don’t want to hear your conversation, people. I’m tired of them ringing in the middle of movie theaters, and worse, people answering them and talking at full voice. I’m tired of them interrupting church services, when I’m receiving communion. I’m tired of them ringing during orchestra rehearsals. My son said he’s tired of seeing people look at them to check messages mid conversation with someone else. My orchestra director would do that in the middle of a rehearsal. He’d be swinging his baton, and then all of the sudden pull his cell phone out of his pocket and look at it. And, if you read my prior camping article, you’ll see that’s I’m tired of hearing loudmouths chatter away at 1:00 AM in campgrounds on their phones while I’m trying to sleep.

There’s gotta be a baseline of courtesy with these things. Reading texts is not much better. Nothing like having a heavy duty conversation with someone only for them to pause to read a text from someone else.

I think it all comes down to being in the moment. If you are doing something, don’t let a cell phone interrupt you. Concentrate on that thing you are doing. Society is pushing us to multitask all aspects of our lives. This is not a good thing. No one is relaxing anymore or enjoying nice, quiet, everyday moments. Cell phones are ruining those moments.

These things, when it comes down to it, should really be used only in emergencies. I use mine from time to time to meet up with people. They are very good for that. As a rule, I don’t generally just yak on and on with the cell phone out in public. If I’m out enjoying a meal with my family at a restaurant, I don’t want my phone ringing. If it does, and if I decide to answer it, it is going to be very brief. It’s not nice to expect everyone else around you to stop what they are doing so you can have your conversation on the phone.

I think cell phones are so ubiquitous now that people have …

The Easiest Phone Search Reverse Lookup System Ever – Learn How to Reverse Lookup a Phone Number

The Easiest Phone Search Reverse Lookup System Ever – Learn How to Reverse Lookup a Phone Number


If you want to perform a reverse cell phone number look up, you are not alone. People from everywhere across the country are curious about the number that keeps calling and hanging up, the number that keeps showing up on your girlfriend’s or boyfriend’s call history, the number that you found in your drawer with no name to it. Whatever the reason, curiosity spurs us to search for answers about who is on the other end of the phone.

Unfortunately, because cell phones are not listed in phone books and are not in the public domain for privacy reasons, it is much more difficult to trace a cell phone number than it is a landline number. There are many good reasons that these numbers are kept private and secure; however, we are slowly losing that privacy. As telemarketers and companies gain access to our cell phone numbers, it means we receive more solicitations and have to pay for more minutes. There are ways to conduct reverse look up inquiries for cell phone numbers.

Although cell numbers are not listed in phone books or public domain, the communication companies do keep track of numbers within their internal databases. Obviously, you are not allowed to go into these databases and search, but there are many companies who purchase information from these databases and compile all the results so they have access and a listing of almost all of the numbers across the United States.

Since the cell phone providers charge the listing services to access their databases, a reverse cell phone number look up will usually cost you a small fee.

Resuming, if you are really serious on your cell phone number search and you want accurate information instead of obsolete data, I urge you to perform a cell phone number search. The search fee is really low, and if you are desperate about getting the phone number owner personal information, then it is really worth it.
