3D??

Uncategorized

3D has been around for a while and is still going till this very day. People had doubts in with 3D films, saying it was just a fad and would eventually die out. But instead of dying out, it has actually increased in sales over the few years. A lot of people really enjoy the 3D experience.

Personally I am not a big fan of 3D films, just because I find discomfort in wearing the glasses the whole time. I know that defeats the purpose of watching anything in 3D but for me its just a haste when it comes to comfort. Comfort takes a big part of the experience when attending the theaters for me at least do to the fact that I am paying to watch and enjoy a movie. I also find it annoying when watching a 3D film at home on a 3D TV is annoying as well because we have to be eye level with the TV while watching. What I think the experience at home should be is relaxing in the own comfort of your house and you can’t always do that with the 3D TVs if you would rather lay down while watching a movie.

But have no fear, MIT is coming up with a new way to view 3D without the glasses. Something such as a hologram. They are in the process of making prototypes for this type of technology, using liquid crystal panels. If this goes through and the technology looks good and its for a fair price, I would have no problem buying something like this!

How to Make $$ online

Uncategorized

There are plenty of ways that one can make money online. Of course we all know that it is possible to make money with a YouTube channel. But I’m going to tell you how it is possible to make money besides using your YouTube channel.

There are plenty of online surveys that you could take that pay you to fill out and respond to whatever questions are on their survey. Another way to make money is by responding to peoples blogs. It’s not the highest paying job but hey it gets you money for putting your thoughts into someone’s blog. You could also make money off of domain names. If someone is interested in the domain name that you own they could offer you money in order to buy the domain name for their use. You could also build a website for someone in need of one and charge a monthly maintenance fee as well.You could also make money by sharing any files online with certain websites that ask of this and get paid that way. And one of the last ways you could make money is by sharing your knowledge and answering questions online as well. This helps websites such as JustAnswer.

My final project will be a website that I create for my portfolio and the host that I will be using is Wix.

Week 4

Part 1

MIT is where a lot of research is done and where people “design technologies for people to create a better future”. They try and make inventions that can help aid humans with all the new technology there is around us that we all take for granted.

Part 2

So I did my research on The Net Leverages article. This was really cool to look at because it was an old article and it had a hyperbole that there would be 1 billion people who use the web. As far as I know this is true already. The hyperbole was that the internet would reach 1 billion users by the year 2000. This I’m not so sure of but now a days I guarantee that it is getting one billion users especially those who own a cell phone can easily access the web with a hit of a button.

Final proposal

I will be doing a website for my final for this class.

Open Source

Open Source- denoting software for which the original source code is made freely available and may be redistributed and modified.

This is open source, —–> “With that in mind, open source can be a great thing, however I am not as affected as others by the opinions for or against” (Schiff, 2015). He’s the one that just posted right before this. Matt just shared his idea with his homie (me) and I got an idea of what to write about. I can now either disagree or agree with Matthew and use it in my own liking. I just believe that open source is a great thing because it allows us to surf the web and obtain knowledge/software thats free. What can get any better than getting something for free.

Marcus’ Net Neutrality

Uncategorized

What is Net Neutrality?

According to Dictionary.com the definition of Net Neutrality is “the concept that broadband Internet service providers should provide nondiscriminatory access to Internet content, platforms, etc., and should not manipulate the transfer of data regardless of its source or destination”. Net Neutrality allows all content on the internet to be seen without blocking out any other content so that there are multiple sources rather than just one. This allows all sources to be seen equally without favoring one source or another.
