waste leaves toxic taste

products like PCs, TV sets, VCRs, VCDs, cellphones, stereos, fax

computers may replace PCs...
the silicon-based conventional computers are slowly and surely edging
closer to their peak performance in terms of information storage and
data search, researchers are on a look out for the smarter
technological tools that would go beyond the barriers of classical
physics. It is against this backdrop that for many years now
physicists have been toying with the idea of a computational device
that could be as small as a teacup based on the well-defined laws of

qubits will secure data
of the fundamental problems in cryptography is how to get the
encryption key (or password) to the receiver, secretly. There is no
way to guarantee that the 'snooper' does not read the key in transit.
One way to resolve is Public Key Cryptograph, which involves a shared
public key that the whole world knows, and a hidden private key that
only you can see.
indispensable for cable Net
demand for a stable Internet connection and higher bandwidth has led
to enormous success of the so-called cable Net. Actually cable Net in
India is basically an extended LAN over Cat5 cable, and not what is
technically known as the Internet-over (coaxial)-cable. Decreasing
costs of networking equipment has made it possible for such services
to be made available at cheaper rates.

new friends being developed by the humans are robots. So in a way, the
21st century besides being the century of new technologies will also
remove the differences between automation and living beings.
