Things To Know Before Buying Refurbished Computers

You have the potential to save hundreds of Norwegian krone when you purchase a refurbished computer over a brand-new desktop or laptop. Restored electronics have a somewhat mysterious reputation they do not deserve, particularly given the cost of a new computer. Fortunately, the most common misconceptions associated with the used PCs, desktops, and laptops can be quickly dispelled. Do not allow any misunderstandings to color your view. I see no motive in the world why you cannot find a powerful machine that matches just a few hundred Norwegian kroner to your needs.

At Refurb, purchasing refurbished computers is a great way to save money and make the environment a benefit. But you may be worried somebody could give you a lemon. Hence, it is vital to take some time to find the right machine.

Here are what to look for before buying a refurbished computer.

Amcor develops world-first recyclable retort flexible packaging

The product, which uses Amcor’s AmLite HeatFlex Recyclable solution, has the potential to be used in a variety of retort applications where products with a long shelf-life require high-barrier, high-heat resistant packaging.

“The technology to solve the problem of retort recyclability simply did not exist​,” Amcor’s chief commercial officer Peter Konieczny said.

“Amcor’s innovation represents a breakthrough for brand owners looking to reach their sustainability ambitions. Brands will be able to stand out and meet consumers’ growing demand for more sustainable products by replacing older formats with the latest in cutting-edge packaging technology.”

Amcor said creating a recyclable version was considered a challenge because it added another requirement to packaging already satisfying very high functional needs: withstanding heat-sterilization, blocking oxygen and bacteria, keeping food safe without refrigeration and ensuring a long shelf life.

Flexible retort packaging, a modern alternative to metal cans, can improve the carbon footprint of

Big Oil Faded. Will Big Tech?

This article is part of the On Tech newsletter. You can sign up here to receive it weekdays.

Less than a decade ago, Exxon Mobil was the most valuable company in the world. On Monday, it’s being kicked out of the Dow Jones industrial average after nearly a century of inclusion in the stock index.

I’m mentioning an energy company in a technology newsletter for two reasons: First, as wild as it feels to have a handful of American technology superpowers rule the economy and the stock market and influence world events, oil superpowers like Exxon were in a similar position not very long ago.

And second, while it’s hard to imagine Big Tech losing relevance, most people didn’t predict that demand for fossil fuels would start to wane, until it did. That’s part of the sweeping changes that ushered out the era of Big Oil and started the Big

Cool Construction Technology

Amazing projects of constructions are being completed around the world as I write this text. Along with new technology, new methods of building are created. From using flying drones to 3D printing smart helmets for workers and solar panels that are transparent, innovations are starting to have almost revolutionary impact on industry of construction. 2016 will be rich year for construction while technology providing even more, increasing job safety, flexibility and accuracy. Drones are starting to be used increasingly by mapping firms, construction firms and also public agencies.

Why Digital Signage and Wayfinding Technology Are Critical in a Post-Pandemic World

This year we have faced a host of new challenges around the way we work and live due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Every component of our life, from work, to schools and universities, healthcare facilities to entertainment centers, all must find ways to adapt and overcome challenges to support the “new normal” while keeping the public safe and proactively mitigating health risks. Flexible and safe workplaces, learning spaces, and other public spaces must become agile and pivot as needs continue to change daily.

For systems integrators, installers, AV/IT managers, and others responsible for keeping technology working in buildings, remaining agile is especially critical. Fully remote companies and schools are still widespread, but in-person working, learning, and more continues to expand as buildings open fully or partially. Digital signage and wayfinding are an important part of how these buildings operate; they bring people together, communicate changes and important messages, streamline operational

The two big telecommunication companies in the country were included among the most improved internet providers of 4G availability in the world despite the still slow internet speed compared to other countries.

UK-based Opensignal Ltd. listed Smart Communications and Globe Telecommunications in the roster of the top 30 mobile network operators in the world that improved its services in terms of 4G internet connections and video experience.

The report was based on the mobile network experience between the first six months of 2019 and the first half of 2020. It has four critical measures: video experience, download speed experience, upload speed experience and 4G availability.

The average proportion of users that used the 4G of PLDT’s wireless arm Smart grew by 17.9% and Globe’s scores for video experience increased by 32.7% and for download speed by 24.5%.

PETALING JAYA, Sept 14 — Sharp Corporation has developed a device equipped with Plasmacluster technology that they claim can effectively reduce the airborne novel coronavirus particles.

A collaborative effort, the Plasmacluster technology is the result of the collaborative effort between researchers from the National Research Centre for the Control and Prevention of Infectious Diseases, Nagasaki University and Shimane University’s faculty of medicine.

The brand prides itself on the effectiveness of its Plasmacluster technology from 2004 where the technology inactivated the feline coronavirus (FCoV).

New Research Shows that Breach and Attack Simulation Technology is Key for Managing Cyber Risk in a World of Growing Complexity

Frost and Sullivan’s white paper highlights the importance of using automated tools like BAS in identifying security gaps. In Automated Breach and Attack Simulation: The Cost & Risk Reduction Revolution is Here, Frost & Sullivan’s Global Cybersecurity Program Leader Jarad Carleton writes, “Leveraging advanced automated BAS technology is a best practice that more enterprises with a large number of endpoints need to embrace. It will unquestionably enable organizations to raise the bar on security hygiene while simultaneously allowing IT departments to become more efficient.”

A Critical Period for Cybersecurity

In 2019, there were roughly 2.3 billion endpoints globally, according to Carleton. With the COVID-19 pandemic forcing millions of workers to telecommute, the job of maintaining endpoint security has become much more complex, as workers use their devices outside of the office and away from IT oversight and assistance.

Carleton notes that today’s organizations must deal with vulnerabilities arising from
