Cell phones

Cell phones are portable telephones that transmit signals through a cellular network. This system enables people to make phone calls or send text messages.

Background of a cell phone.

Motorola was the first company to make a cell phone. This was between 1973 and 1983. It was called DynaTac. It was heavy and had to be charged after every 30minutes of use.  Back in those days, almost every household had a landline so the cell phone was not so essential.

Non-profit Technology can help you do good

Due to time and budgetary constraints, many non-profit organisations tend to put technology way down on their priority lists. However, there is now a major case for why they should be bringing technology back up to the No. 1 position!

non-profit

In order to assist in allowing the adoption of the latest technology to become an easier, and more affordable, activity for non-profit organisations of all sizes, Microsoft recently launched a brand-new programme for these called Technology for Social Impact, or TSI.

What if you wanted to develop a Star Wars robot, and could see the actions performed by the Star Wars robot first, just to know if all’s good? The simulations could help you identify small to big errors, enabling you to get it right when you actually manufacture the robot.
