A ferrite bead is a passive electronic inductor, commonly found attached to the power cord of your laptop or on your monitor cables. While most people are aware of what a monitor cable is and what it does, the ferrite bead that is attached to it is a bit of a mystery. Not there for show, the ferrite bead is designed to inhibit high frequency signals on almost any power supply line. They can be used for fixing the disturbance known as EMI (electromagnetic interference). EMI is generated by an external source that affects an electrical circuit by electromagnetic induction, electrostatic coupling, or conduction. Below you can find some helpful information on selecting the best monitor cables with ferrite beads.

The University of New South Wales of Australia (UNSW) has managed to create a resistible ink used to retain memory cells despite misuse of products. A recent experiment was held by the University and lead by Professor Sean Li, at the Department of Materials Science and Engineering. The prototype endured testing of the durability of the cells in the ink. Coating a minor piece of plastic and bending it back and forth over 2000 times resulting in no loss of data.

BBC News has recently reported that the United States nuclear weapons force still uses 8-inch floppy disks as well as a 1970s-era computer system. This information was revealed through a government report. According to the Government Accountability Office, the Pentagon, along with several other departments, are in desperate need of having their “legacy systems” urgently replaced. The government report suggested that taxpayers spend around $61 billion per year just to maintain these ageing technologies. This amount of $61 billion a year is said to be roughly three times more than the cost of investments for modern information technology systems. The government report revealed that the United States Department of Defense systems which coordinated intercontinental nuclear bombers, ballistic missiles, as well as tanker support aircraft

Intel is one of the largest and highest valued semiconductor Companies, has quietly launched a new program for Laptops and notebooks which was revealed as a new Skylake-U system-on chip for low power laptops which is called the Corei7-6660u. The chip is based on 14nm processing technology which is packed with two core packs clocked at 2.40GHz. This new chip is a little upgrade from the older chip known as the i7-6650U which pretty much does the same thing just at a little slower pace clocking in at 2.20Ghz. The two chips have both been on the market for the same price at $415 in 1,000 unit quantities.
