Your Questions About Technology

James asks…

What technology is used to track seismic activity?

Does anyone know of a time line for this technology? When it was invented? Different models available over the course of years? How the technology was made better? Improvements over the years?

What ways has technology helped people by examining the history of sanitation?

What ways has technology helped people by examining the history of sanitation in the context of disease outbreaks and comparing the quality of life in those times to that human life expectancy have resulted in larger part because of technologies that we now take for granted, such as waste disposal, sanitary food handling and refrigeration?

Sitatara answers:

Blessed is every one who fears the LORD,
who walks in his ways!
You shall eat the fruit of the labor of your hands;
you shall be happy, and it shall be well with you.
Your wife will be like a fruitful vine within your house;
your children will be like olive shoots around your table.

What is keeping computer technology from taking off uncontrollably?

I know a bit about computers, particularly how technology nearly doubles every 13ish months. My question is why is it that 13 months, and why/what is it that is making it so it doesn’t just double all the time right now? What is the bottleneck for technology?

Sitatara answers:

The primary bottleneck is the difficulty in finding new processes to reliably create CPUs and other microchips with more and more transistors packed onto them in a way that will allow them to function.

Physics imposes limitations on the minimum size of the traces that can be etched onto a layer of a silicon chip using existing processes, and on how close together the traces can be without allowing electrons to interact with those following neighboring traces in ways that would cause the chip not to function correctly. Also, there is always some electrical resistance, which generates heat, and chips have to be designed in such a way that the internally generated heat can be dispersed quickly enough to avoid any danger of melting the chip.

Ken asks…

What are the latest technology related topics that are useful in telecom billing domain?

Can anyone please suggest me some seminar topics about latest technology that is used in telecom billing domain or also technology that can be used to reduce cost and effort of developing, deploying and managing telecom billing applications? Example like “Cloud Computing”.

Sitatara answers:

Don’t have any idea
sorry

David asks…

How is technology truly impacting on our lives, and is it a good or bad thing?

This is for an ICT assignment for my AS Level coursework. Explain the effects of all this growing dependence on computer technology and explain why it is either good or bad – or possibly partly both – on today’s society.

Sitatara answers:

You’re doing your homework on a computer. That’s an example
We need automobiles or trains to get just about anywhere and all modern cars(1990-) have computers.
We get our news from the tv and computer.
Machines make things for us computers help keep people alive in hospitals wheel chairs are powered.
