Connect With Your Loved Ones Using Satellite Internet

Living in Conway, Arkansas Satellite Internet is something you may be interested in. Especially when you realize how helpful it can be in reaching out to your loved ones. Let’s face it, when children grow up they leave the nest and move away, your sister lives two states away, and you barely talk to your parents who live on the other side of the country. Your family is spread all over the country, even the globe, and you just want to talk to them. Years ago you only have one option, the regular telephone service. These were often spotty calls that you were charged a boatload for and you didn’t even get to talk to your loved ones for too long. However, with the 21st century has come amazing technological advances, such as satellite internet.

What Is Satellite Internet?

Now in the 21st century satellite internet is the way that the world functions. In simple terms, satellite internet is thousands of small satellites communicating with each other and allowing you to communicate using the internet. Connections are more stable than the old telephone service and it gives you many more options to talk to loved ones. There are also more places to talk now. Internet cafes have popped up all over the globe and Wi-Fi hotspots allow you to use internet in your home, out in town, and even in restaurants and airports. What happens if you don’t have Wi-Fi? There are small portable satellite systems, you can bring with you. These are slightly more complex than simply attaining free Wi-Fi, but they allow you to speak to your loved ones almost anywhere.

What Can I Communicate With?

The internet has changed the world and has given the population, many new ways to communicate. 20 years ago you could use your phone and nothing else, but now you have a variety of different options. Social media like Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram allow you to post pictures and videos of what you are doing; allowing your family to see second hand what is going on in your life. These sites also come with private messaging system that allow you to type back and forth with a loved one whenever you want; much less difficult than talking on your phone in public. Or, maybe you miss seeing your moms face? There are programs you now can download onto your computer that allow you to video chat. You can now see your family members without them being in the same room!

More to Come!

Satellite internet has opened a world of new doors and there are more advances that are sure to come. For today, however, your satellite internet connection gives you a multitude of ways to connect with loved ones all over the globe.

Is the FCC really endangering Oklahoma’s Internet Connectivity?

Do the actions of the FCC really endanger rural Oklahoman’s ability to connect to the internet? Well, let’s see if we can answer that.

The FCC has recently been accused of placing out dated regulations on Internet Service Providers throughout the United States. These regulations allegedly date back to railroads in the 1800s, further exacerbating the problem, because apparently the Federal Government already knew we were going to have internet problems today so long ago.

Fine. Now, let’s look at what Ajit Pai has to say. He is the FCC commissioner who opposes these regulations set out by the very organization that butters his bread. He says that there are “thousands of small ISPs that do not have the means…to withstand regulatory onslaught.”

Pai feels that using these “old regulations” (I’ll get to that in a minute) will force these tiny businesses to go bust. He thinks that by destroying these small ISPs, the larger companies will take over and there will be a monopoly anyway.
Joe Portman says that the most threatened ISPs are the ones that service rural areas. Joe’s company, Alamo Broadband, which is head of, serves only seven hundred customers across a five hundred square mile region. He wants the world to know that his customers will have no choice because larger companies don’t invest in rural markets.

In all honesty, that sounds like he is saying there’s no point in offering business to those markets.

Now, these “old laws” that people like Pai and Portman are referring to are the Sherman Antitrust Act of 1890, Clayton Antitrust Act of 1914, Federal Trade Commission Act of 1914, Robinson–Patman Act of 1936, and the Celler–Kefauver Act of 1950. All of these acts were designed and implemented in order to stop big business monopolies and cartels from running the country. (Well, anyway.)

So, really, even if there were only a single Internet provider in Oklahoma, there would be no way for them to monopolize internet connectivity in the first place—that would be illegal.

That said, there’s really a simple solution. According to the map on the OK State website, there is only one spot in the entire state that isn’t covered by satellite internet availability—and that is a nature preserve. Seriously. Stop bawling about regulations and point people to the information that’s already there.

5th Generation Intel Processor To Debut In 2015

The 2015 release of Intel is going to astound millions. Yes, that is right; Intel is evolving, and taking it to the 5th generation come this spring. They are simultaneously launching Skylake and Broadwell processors. While there were widespread rumors of Intel delaying on its schedule, their latest roadmap update defies it and confirms it is indeed hitting the stores in 2015.

intel-procesorWe have already come across Broadwell architecture a couple months ago going by the codename “Core M”. But Intel, this time over, is looking to enhance its performance despite it received rave reviews from the users. The release of these two processors will be limited to certain PCs, Acer Aspire E5-571 being one of them. What’s more awesome is that the price is going to stay under the belt, while we may see decline in price of other predecessors.
Basically, Broadwell is the new generation 14nm Haswell with massive improvements to the CPU, but Skylake, in contrast, is a whole new thing. Let us look into some of features (unconfirmed):

1. No More FIVR (Fully Integrated Voltage Regulator) – Intel’s FIVR has always proved to cause headaches. It is very obvious that putting the regulator right next to the CPU could cause it to be super heated, and it only keeps heating up more as the CPU workrate increases. So it is a great “news” that Skylake could be dropping the FIVR. This rumor just applies for Skylake, however Broadwell is perhaps going to keep things similar in this aspect.

2. GPU Improvement – Majority of the gamers do not prefer the integrated graphics, so Intel has decided to pick up their game. Yes it is rumored that Skylake will retain the max 128 MB cache thing, but the GPU enhancement will bring major improvements to it. Besides GPU will hold DirectX 12 and more chips will beIntel-Skylake-S-Platform-Details released down the line.

3. Fresh Instructions – It is expected that Skylake will include some of the unique instructions for performing SHA-1 and 2 safely. Intel ADX (Multi-Precision Add Carry Instruction Extensions) and Intel MPX (Memory Protection Extensions) are billed for Skylake most probably.

Intel Skylake Core i5 And Core i7 Details Leaked:

According to a Chinese website called Benchlife, the information regarding the Intel’s upcoming processor details have been unveiled or leaked to be specific. Currently, the site states that the Skylake i7 processor will see at least 15% improvements over the current Intel Haswell i7 processor. As we all are aware, 15% improvement has been like a trademark improvement since like 2011. It sounds like we should not be expecting TOO MUCH as the rumors currently speak, but then again, it is just a rumor.

intel-core
Intel Skylake i5s and i7s feature ten SKUs, ranging from efficient power 35W T chips to the high end 95W K series chips. The latter is obviously what we are really awaiting. But the good news is, there will be a change. 95 W K series are highly effective chips and have doubled with much more effective architecture. And hopefully, this processor is going to allow the users with some real overclocking. The leak also suggests that Skylake is going to support both DDR3 and DDR4 based systems.
