The scientists demonstrate the ability to decode a persons preference for one of two drinks with 80 per cent accuracy by measuring the intensity of near infrared light absorbed in brain tissue.
Canadas largest children’s rehabilitation hospital have developed a new technique that uses infrared light brain imaging to decode preference with the goal of ultimately opening the world of choice to children who can’t speak or move.
This is the first system that decodes preference naturally from spontaneous thoughts,
After teaching the computer to recognize the unique pattern of brain activity associated with preference for each subject, the researchers accurately predicted which drink the participants liked best 80 per cent of the time.
Most brain-computer interfaces designed to read thoughts require training.
Wearing a headband fitted with fibre-optics that emit light into the pre-frontal cortex of the brain, they were shown two drinks on a computer monitor, one after the other, and asked to make a mental decision about which they liked more. When your brain is active, the oxygen in your blood increases and depending on the concentration, it absorbs more or less light.
Luu says. The brain is too complex to ever allow decoding of a persons random thoughts. However, if we limit the context limit the question and available answers, as we have with predicting preference then mind reading becomes possible.
Luu says. In some people, their brains are more active when they don’t like something, and in some people they are more active when they do like something.
What is GPS Fleet Tracking Systems?
GPS (Global Position System) utilizes satellite signals to track location. It will monitor and manage your entire fleet from a single computer. By Using Feet GPS Tracking system, you can monitor your cargo, assets, employees, etc It will helps you if your products are misplaced, stolen, etc
By Using GPS Tracking system, you can track down the stolen or misplaced products. Technology is getting newer everyday with a lot of new inventions especially in the area of security. GPS Fleet tracking technology in vehicles or any other objects is one of those important technology.
By attaching a GPS device in vehicles or any other objects , we can monitor the vehicles or any other objects from a remote place from anywhere across the globe.
GPS Fleet Tracking will allow their companies to monitor all their vehicles and other assets from a single computer. This will greatly reduce the operating costs for them and eliminating unnecessary cost and wasted time. There are a lot of benefits of using these fleet tracking systems with some different features. Most of these GPS systems are also equipped with alarm systems, cameras, audio (voice) recorders, telephones and added security devices.
GPS Fleet Tracking System Gives following Features:
* Gives Location Data.
* Gives speed Information and alerts.
* Present Direction.
* Automatic e-mail alert.
* Fastest Speed Report.
* Historical Data.
* Accumulated Mileage Alert.
* Map Detail and so onâ€¦
These systems also helps their parent to track down where their teenage kids are driving. Parents really just want to make sure their kids are driving to some safest place. but I too feel uncomfortable being monitored while driving. But then again the safety comes first.
These systems also helps in rough terrain such as into the desert or forests it is too easy to lose your bearing and your directions when nightfall. A GPS Tracking System can literally save your life, they have saved many lives in recent years and authorities use them in such locations religiously.
In recent years the process has been refined to the degree where Some phones have GPS tracking built in System.
GPS Fleet Tracking Systems are definitely great ways to monitor your business by tracking your vehicles or any other objects. There are so many GPS fleet tracking device are available according to our usage.
The Mains reasons why PCs crashes is as follows:
The number one reason why Windows crashes is hardware conflict. Each hardware device communicates to other devices through an interrupt request channel (IRQ). These are supposed to be unique for each device.
Ram (random-access memory) problems might bring on the blue screen of death with a message saying Fatal Exception Error. A fatal error indicates a serious hardware problem. Sometimes it may mean a part is damaged and will need replacing.But a fatal error caused by Ram might be caused by a mismatch of chips.
Every motherboard is supplied with a range of chipset settings that are decided in the factory. A common way to access these settings is to press the F2 or delete button during the first few seconds of a boot-up.
Hard disk drives
After a few weeks, the information on a hard disk drive starts to become piecemeal or fragmented. It is a good idea to defragment the hard disk every week or so, to prevent the disk from causing a screen freeze.
First sign of a virus infection is instability. Some viruses erase the boot sector of a hard drive, making it impossible to start. This is why it is a good idea to create a Windows start-up disk.

The use of an Atom CPU with a mere 1GB of RAM to play Windows Vista Home Basic Edition. A Linux system is expected to come later, so it’s not all bad news though.
The Mini 12 costs £429
If considered as a small, low-powered and above all portable notebook, then, the Mini 12 could be a lot more attractive.
Nokia on Tuesday launched the N97, the manufacturer’s first smartphone to feature both a touchscreen and a slide-out full Qwerty keyboard. After the Nokia 5800, the N97 is the company’s second-ever touchscreen mobile phone. The Nokia N97 is slightly larger and heavier than Apple’s iPhone one of its main rivals. Its 3.5-inch screen is the same size as that of the iPhone, but at 640×360 pixels, its resolution outstrips that of the 480×320-pixel iPhone screen. The N97 can also handle Flash video in its browser something the iPhone cannot do. The N97 has 32GB of inbuilt flash storage and can take microSD cards of up to 16GB in capacity. The Finnish manufacturer claims the device’s 1500mAh battery can handle one-and-a-half days of continuous music playback. Connectivity options include Bluetooth 2.0, HSDPA, 802.11b/g Wi-Fi and a Micro-USB port. The handset can also take standard 3.5mm headphone jacks, and a 5-megapixel camera with flash is included
