Intel Corp has this month made an announcement revealing that it will be entering into a form of battle with AMD (Advanced Micro Devices) and other big companies which are capitalising on the demand for microchips which can be used for cloud computing.
Intel’s microprocessor is set to be called the Xeon Scalable Processor chip, and according to its creators, is set apart from its existing counterparts. Navel Rao, the VP of Intel’s artificial intelligence branch, has reportedly informed that it Intel’s microprocessor will provide users with more support for the ways that computing is expected to be implemented in the near relatively near future, including artificial intelligence and cars which do not require a driver.
Very often, people hear the word ‘free’ and become immediately wary. There is, of course, the knee-jerk reaction that there’s no such thing as a free lunch. In this increasingly cynical, avaricious, money-centric world filled with false promises and loopholes, it’s an understandable reaction. Still, having even given WHPAY?’s website or blog a cursory glance, you would, by now, know that although we can make no promises about lunch, there is such a thing as a genuinely free conference call.
A buzz is quickly growing around the term ‘LiFi’, but what is it actually all about? The quick version is, it’s a much, much, much faster version of WiFi – about 100 times faster, in fact, reaching up to 224GB/s. Li-Fi is an abbreviated form of ‘Light Fidelity’, which is the term given to this particular wireless connection. As its name suggests, it is an optical wireless communication, using visible light, infra-red, and near ultra-violet in the place of radio frequency waves. This means it can carry a great deal more information. In normal Visible Light Communication, LEDs (Light Emitting Diodes) are switched on and off rapidly – too rapidly for a human to notice. However, LiFi would involve keeping the LEDs switched on all the time, although they could be dim enough to be impossible to perceive by the naked eye. This, of course, means that LiFi will be a relatively energy efficient mode of communication.
Conference calling is constantly growing and developing, earning its place as one of the most invaluable – and, as it happens, inexpensive – business tools available. If you don’t already use it frequently, there are reasons why you should be conference calling, particularly as it’s available completely free, if you know where to look.
Governments across the globe frequently engage in conference calls, be it with members of their own government who are travelling or stationed abroad, members of foreign governments or NGOs. If groups with such huge power, pressing responsibility and often urgent issues to resolve find the conference call one of their most valuable tools, can there be any doubt that it could be immensely valuable for you?
With some conference bridges like WHYPAY? offering their services completely free of charge, and all the benefits of conference calling, it’s no wonder that the teleconference has become an everyday tool in the business world. As with any situation involving potential disclosure of sensitive, financial or legal details, security can be a concern that people want to know they need not worry about. With WHYPAY? there are several ways to ensure you can make your conference call more secure, giving yourself and your participants a little peace of mind.
Starting a new business is an incredibly exciting, exhilarating time filled with potential and opportunity. And yet it is undeniably prone to being a very stressful time, often surrounded with great financial risks, uncertainty and pressure, particularly if there are people dependent on you. Anyone behind a new start-up knows that taking care with money is important – it is not the time to be frivolous. Therefore, what better time to put to use the free business tools on offer to you than in the early stages of a new business?
