奈米科技的新產物:手持式消毒器

<p class="byline" align="right">Atticus Wu on Jan 3, 2007, 2:04 PM ET<a href="http://www.hammacher.com/publish/73647.asp?promo=new_items&amp;cm_ven=CJ&amp;cm_pla=1781363&amp;cm_ite=Hammacher+Schlemmer&amp;cm_cat=1511450" set="yes"><img style="DISPLAY: block; MARGIN: auto" alt="" hspace="4" src="http://www.blogsmithmedia.com/www.engadget.com/media/2007/01/1.1.07-germzapper.jpg" vspace="4" border="0" /></a></p>
<br />如果你討厭乳膠手套的觸感,或厭倦了手部消毒劑的濕滑,何不試試 Hammacher Schlemmer 為你提供的另一個選擇。<br /><br />有著滑蓋機的外表,這款手持式消毒器利用 UV-C 紫外線及奈米技術,可針對鍵盤、電話、滑鼠,及家中其他容易滋生病菌的東西(像是牙刷、砧板)消毒,據說能夠消 99.99%的大腸桿菌、葡萄球菌、沙門氏菌,及其他可能會導致疾病的細菌,不過要記住,一定要從「污染處」的上方照射,並乖乖等內部計時器的訊號,才算完成消毒。<br /><br />相信見到這麼輕巧可愛的玩意的你,也會忍不住想買個來用一下吧,售價美金79.95元(折合台幣約2600元)。

Asus XG Station 為筆電帶來外接式音效、外接式獨立顯示晶片

<br />華碩即將在 CES 上展出的這個叫作「XG Station」的玩意兒,目前相關資料還蠻稀少的,不過看起來它背後的邏輯,應該是將筆電的音效晶片和顯示晶片獨立出來,讓使用者可以出門帶著輕便的筆電工作,回家再外接上 XG Station 玩遊戲。<br /><br />不過目前好像沒有哪種匯流排能支援獨立顯示晶片所須的頻寬的,倒底華碩是怎麼設計的呢?是純粹輔助性的功能(影像壓縮晶片之類的),還是真的是獨立顯卡?看來再等一小會兒就會真相大白了…

<div>
<div>As the RFID business grows strongly from $2.8 billion in 2006 to $26 billion in 2016, transport will be taking its fair share. A seminal decision was the unanimous vote of IATA, in October 2005, to settle on only one specification for the world's baggage tags, this being based on the UHF frequency band. This was courageous, because UHF works well with dry, non-metallic environments such as retail apparel in the UK and books in shops in the Netherlands, where there are few readers to interfere with each other but air baggage is none of these things. The technologists are wrestling with that one but in Europe and East Asia it is largely a waiting game as they hope for easing of UHF radio regulations to something nearer to the power levels, signalling protocols and bandwidth enjoyed in the US. However, few countries are willing to match the US regulations. Work rounds are on the way and the seven million or so airline bags that are lost yearly in the world, at a retrieval cost of about $100 a time, must surely reduce some time soon.</div>
<div>&nbsp;</div>
<div>The split of value sales of RFID systems including tags in the air industry is shown below.</div>

<div>Boeing and Airbus are energetically introducing RFID on parts and equipment to reduce counterfeiting, automate status checks and make the supply chain more efficient. Virgin Atlantic, FedEx and others are deeply involved. UHF is preferred but there is interest in HF where appropriate.</div>
<div>&nbsp;</div>
<div>In transport in general, there is a boom in RFID tickets and cards to improve security and speed of transaction and some are increasingly usable for general purchases. Twenty million of the new e-passports are being issued this year, with their RFID labels for security and automated recording of movements. That figure will soon reach 40 million yearly as over 50 countries adopt them. Over eight million ExxonMobil Speedpass key fobs are in use for purchases at gasoline stations. The 4.5 billion credit, debit and account cards from Visa, MasterCard, American Express, JCB and others are gradually being issued in RFID form so they transact faster and are more reliable and longer lived. The first 20 million were issued last year. Well proven HF is used for RFID for ticketing, bank cards and passports.</div>
</div>
<div>&nbsp;</div>
<div>
<div>However, nothing stands still for long in the RFID business and there is now great interest in locating people and things with RFID. For example, one major airport is trying to figure out how to make all people in the airport carry something that lets them be located at all times, the better to eliminate queues and improve evacuations and security. Tracking freight and baggage with the off electronic reader here and there and making heroic assumptions about what happens in between is all well and good but we need Real Time Locating Systems RTLS. These usually consist of RFID at 2.45 GHz because, at this license free frequency, you can locate things using time of arrival from interrogatory beams or be parasitic off pre-existing WiFi networks or use peer to peer ZigBee RFID. However, this is a very busy frequency like UHF and there are a lot of interference issues. The good news is that the cost of RTLS systems and tags is tumbling down. The tag no longer drains its battery in a short time, it is smaller and other impediments are largely overcome. RTLS on vehicles, assets, freight and even people - when they volunteer for queue elimination and other delights - is on its way.</div>

搜尋引擎市佔率!

<p>以下根據Nielsen的統計資料:<br />1. Google:49.5%<br />2. Yahoo:24.3%<br />3. Windows Life:8.2%<br />4. AOL:6.2%<br />5. Ask.com:2.6%<br /><img src="http://aycu30.webshots.com/image/7469/2004219012384578411_rs.jpg" align="absMiddle" alt="" /><br />根據美國線上市調Nielsen/NetRatings在其11月的網路調查報告中指出,Windows Live Search的總市佔率從12%下滑至8.2%,而讓其對手Google和Yahoo佔了近四分之三的市場。</p>
<p>這項調查反映出微軟在搜尋市場佔有率持續在退步。包括comScore Networks、HitWise與Nielsen/NetRatings等的調查都顯示,自2005年10月至2006年10之間,微軟市佔率不斷呈現下滑,而Google則是穩定成長,至於排行第二的Yahoo則是持平。</p>
<p>微軟Windows Live事業群發言人Adam Sohn對此表示,為了挽救持續下滑的搜尋市場,微軟將會讓Windows Live Search正式上線,並透過各種行銷及合作策略,以提高微軟在搜尋市場的市佔率。</p>
<p>而在報告中位居第4和第5名是AOL Search及Ask.com。AOL Search的總市佔率為6.2%,而Ask.com則成長至2.6%。</p>

如何經營自己的佈落格

<p><strong>看到一則教導人如何經營自己的佈落格,供各位參考!</strong><br /><br /><a title="How to get your blog (or yourself) mentioned in print" href="http://blog.penelopetrunk.com/2006/12/20/how-to-get-your-blog-or-yourself-mentioned-in-print-media/" target="new"><font color="#2179c8" size="2">Penelope Trunk</font></a>提供了幾個守則,或許可以幫助Blogger們進攻實體媒體:<br /><br /><strong><img height="380" alt="" hspace="2" src="http://aycu33.webshots.com/image/7992/2005841132912689555_rs.jpg" width="540" align="textTop" vspace="3" />&nbsp;<br /></strong></p>
<p><a id="more-406"></a></p>
<h2>1.Don’t pitch yourself, pitch an idea.</h2>
<p>她文章中強調,雖然許多成功的Blog歸功於站長本身的個人魅力;不過報章雜誌的記者、編輯諸公們可不一定對你本人感興趣。因此如果你希望被報導,最好是強調你的idea,而非你這個人本身。</p>
<h2>2.Pitch an idea with the print audience in mind.</h2>
<p>塑造idea時,別忘了時時將實體印刷的讀者謹記在心。畢竟看雜誌的跟看你Blog的讀者特性,可能截然不同。且許多平面媒體發行量遠遠比一般Blog網站讀者高出許多,因此你的主題、想法最好廣一點,讓人讀起來覺得有興趣的可能性比較高。<br />另一方面,雖然許多雜誌角度比較刁鑽、專業性比報紙高;但別忘了那角度是「雜誌的角度」,不是你的。因此最好先摸清楚該雜誌的風格與特性。<br />再好的文章可能因為風格、角度不同,人家就不用了。</p>
<h2>3.Tailor the idea to the journalist.</h2>
<p>作好準備,尤其是為記者、編輯量身打造他們要的資料。假如你的工夫下得夠,文章內容、編排、用字都堪稱水準,許多編輯是樂得全文照錄。(作者說連紐約時報都可能這樣做)</p>

<p>幾經波折,台灣大哥大引進的行動郵件服務黑莓(<a href="http://www.blackberry.com" target="_blank">Blackberry</a>),終於在台灣市場推出。</p>
<a href="http://www.discoverblackberry.com/devices/device-detail.jsp?navId=H0,C63,P101" target="_blank"><img height="280" alt="BlackBerry 8700g Image" src="http://www.blackberry.com/images/handhelds/landing/8700g_black_landing.jpg" width="230" align="left" border="0" name="BlackBerry8700g" /></a>台灣大哥大今(20)日宣佈「黑莓即時郵BlackBerry」正式上市。先期引進兩款BlackBerry手機7290及8700g,售價分別為 7,990元和12,990元。公布兩種資費方案:月租費899元,享有2M的傳輸量,大約可收1千封電子郵件;月繳1,799元,即能無限傳輸。不過值得注意的是,由於台灣大哥大係鎖定企業用戶市場推出此服務,因此雖然即日起可在台灣大哥大直營門市申購此服務,但在其他零售通路都還暫時看不到。<a href="http://na.blackberry.com/eng/devices/device-detail.jsp?navId=H0,C65,P77#tab_tab_overview" target="_blank"><img alt="BlackBerry 7290 Image" src="http://www.blackberry.com/images/handhelds/landing/7290_landing.jpg" align="right" border="0" /></a>
<p>企業用戶如欲藉由BlackBerry收發公司內部的電子郵件,除上述裝置及資費成本外,尚須額外在於企業郵件伺服器端建置BES(BlackBerry Enterprise Server)。這方面的成本,如以五人使用授權費用來算,一台大約五萬台幣。<br /></p>
