Tecnología en los coches – infografía


Vehículos coches infografía

El cinturón de seguridad, introducido por Volvo en1959, y el airbag, por General Motors a principios de los 60, ya tienen más de 50 años. Sin embargo, abrieron el camino para que hoy la tecnología sea un elemento más de los muchos presentes en los vehículos destinados al gran público.

Así, actualmente pueden ser utilizadas cámaras queayudan a la hora de aparcar (e incluso sistemas de autoaparcado), comandos de voz o aplicaciones para teléfonos inteligentes.

De todos modos, la pantalla más común (y tal vez más práctica) es el GPS, que cada vez empieza a ser más fácil ver de serie en los coches.

The Social Network: Ecosystem vs. Egosystem

The Social Network: Ecosystem vs. Egosystem

By Brian Solis – Of all the social networks competing for our online persona and social graph, Twitter is special. The culture and self-governing rules of engagement shaped by the “me” in social media, create a personalized experience that looks and feels less like a “social” network and instead, creates as an empowering information exchange. Twitter is at the heart of the Web’s evolving egosystem and its archetype is powerful and quite understated.

Study Finds Celebrities Have Little Twitter Influence

By Steve Olenski – “Celebrities who have an army of followers on Twitter do not actually hold any influence on the micro-blogging website, scientists have discovered.” This was the headline on a story posted to the telegraph.co.uk this past Saturday, September 25th. Now my initial reaction was one of feigned disbelief… Really? How can that be?

Social Media: In-House or Outsourced

By Maria Ogneva – Social media is hot, and sometimes it can feel like an arms race across businesses of all sizes to start using social media. There are many caveats and best practices to listening and engaging correctly; although it’s still a developing field and best practices are formed every day, there are certain spoken and unspoken rules and approaches. With that said, it’s imperative that brands adopt a smart strategy and thoughtful execution of social media.

How successful are Facebook ads?
By Donna DeClemente – Like all internet-based content providers making a killing despite charging nothing for their products, Facebook delivers advertisements. Unlike Google, whose AdWords system has rewritten some basic concepts of internet advertising, Facebook ads often prove far more annoying, or simply confounding, than successful.

B2B and Social Media: A Logical Fit
By Drew Hawkins – When something is past the point of experimentation and is still sticking around as a business tool, it’s more than likely here to stay. This video found here shows that. I’ve heard estimates of nearly 20% of people use social tools like LinkedIn and Twitter over email as their primary communication tool. That’s not to say that email is dead (far from it actually) but it is a note that the pendulum is swinging.

Habits of Mind [Acá volcamos varios…]

This is still a work in progress (and feedback would be greatly appreciated), but I’ve decided to explicitly teach (and assess…more on that later) 4 “categories” of mathematics this year.

1. Skills (I know how to…)
2. Concepts (I understand and can explain why…)
3. Connections (I see and can explain the relationship between…)
4. Mathematical Habits of Mind (I can use and appreciate the process of…)

I’ve decided not to use the term “problem solving” because I believe this term is often misused to include be limited to solving problems and because the motivation for problem solving skills seems to be to solely help you get an answer. While I believe that they can be very helpful in finding answers, I see mathematical habits of mind as also being mathematical in and of themselves. So…while searching for patterns may help you solve a problem it is also DOING mathematics.

Here’s the current version of the mathematical habits of mind I think are important.  I hope to explore (in varying depths) every one of these and have already shared the list with my 6th graders.

This is definitely a work in progress and some of these are based on work by Cuoco, Driscoll, Schoenfeld, and others.

A Comprehensive Guide to Windows Vista Fonts for Designers

[T]here are no bad fonts — only inappropriate ones.

— Jason Beaird

The majority of computer users became aware of Microsoft Windows Vista on January 30, 2007, when the company released the new operating system publicly.

You and I of course knew about it well beforehand. Once Vista was available for beta, many web designers adopted it early to begin trying — with varying levels of success — to figure out if they can incorporate Vista fonts into their designs.

Three things quickly became clear:

1. They are beautiful typefaces.
2. They are unusually — and, for designers, unacceptably – blurry unless you have ClearType or another anti-aliasing protocol enabled; but there are serious issues with ClearType.
3. With some exceptions, they are markedly smaller in size than most fonts, making them difficult to incorporate into font stacks.

Trust Microsoft to create something attractive and potentially valuable like this set of spiffy new fonts (or an operating system like Vista), and then take steps to ensure they can’t be used easily.

But I like these fonts: they’re beautiful and they are available in many of our user’s computers (as much as 92% of all PCs use Windows as of May 2010[1]). In addition, the design community deserves some thought as to how to use them in their work.

Let’s see what we’re up against.
