Tips to Prolong Battery Life


Salammm~ Anak IT readers~
Today I want to *liat2 jam nunggu baduk* share on how to *pigang parut* prolong your laptop's battery life based on my experience and knowledge... Or in other words how to extend your laptop's battery life...
Lurus ke pancang or nya omputih straight to the point, I will just list out in bullet points:
  • Set the display's brightness... Mikin tarang, mikin menungap battery...
  • If inda makai wireless, tutup tia...
  • Same goes to bluetooth, tutup if inda bepakai
  • Run only programs/services that you need... Close all the less necessary programs/services running on the background...
  • Heat is the best enemy for electrical devices... Sama jua battery laptop... Keep the battery away from direct "heat" such as sunlight, api, microwave? oven? kuali hangat?
  • When you charge the battery, it is best practice if you make sure your laptop inda hangat before plug in the power cord... Or masa yang paling sesuai is when it is switched off or masa inda bepakai...
  • Yang this one i'm not really sure but someone told me that keep the battery away from magnets... Drop a comment if you have better thesis on this...
  • This one may sounds "nda mengana" but makes sense... "Keep your laptop defregmented regularly"
  • If rasanya jarang makai DVD-RW or any optical drives, CABUT =) hahaha so true...
  • Use SSD instead of HDD... Reasons? Low power consumption ;) Yea I know masih mahal...
  • Here is the best tips when you are using HDD... If you plan on watching movies, put it on your pengdrive and play it from there... The reason is that, if the movie is inside your HDD, this will make your HDD spinning for the whole movie's length...
  • Graphic card... If you are planning to buy a new laptop, I recommend you to buy laptop which comes with nVidia Optimus... Read further~
  • Another tip if you are planning on buying laptop in the near future (to be specific, late 2010), buy a laptop which usesPixelQi's display panel...
  • Again, another tip if kan membali laptop, cari battery nya yang tinggi cell nya... e.g, 12-Cells battery... But biasanya yang bejual di kadai masa ani 6-cells... Some 8-cells...
  • Bring your charger everywhere... Abis ceta...
There are some softwares which are created to help "virtually" extending the battery's life...
Hope that gives benifits to all of us... Sama-sama sharing ilmu di bulan Ramadhan ;)
Sekian, wassalam...

P/S : Selamat menjalani ibadah puasa~ =)

SEA-ME-WE 3 CABLE


Salam Anak IT readers.

SEA-ME-WE 3 cable or also known as South-East Asia - Middle East - Western Europe 3 cable is an optical submarine telecommunications cable linking those read further...
This article especially goes to "anonymous" asking kenapa internet down everytime ada natural disaster on the news especially yang baru-baru anie... So by looking at the picture alone, I hope you will get a bettteeer picture... Especially masa ada earthquake... These long cable is lying on the seabed and so there is a high possibility that the cable eventually "tepunggal" and disconnecting the network semasa gegaran di bawah lautan berlaku...
That is the path of SEA-ME-WE 3 which includes Brunei Darussalam... Visit the cable's official site...There is another submarine cable which connecting Brunei to other part of the world especially U.S named Asia-America Gateway or AAG... I will post about it tomorrow insyaAllah but you may also try togoogle it now =) Until next time~

Brunei Government on Facebook?


Salam Anak IT Readers....

Brunei Government on Facebook?... Click here to read further...
It is like having friendster or myspace untuk urusan formal... What do you think?... Another point is that we also need to think who owned the social network as well as the confidentialities of information going inside and outside of the government... Share your honest opinion with Anak IT regarding this matter...

The Adam - Android Pad


Salam Anak IT.
Notion Ink's Adam
Gadget for today is The Adam. Yup... Adam... Reason?...
"It's not a tablet or a book reader. It's a new species, and we call it ADAM. The First."
Notion Ink
The creator says so but for me it is just an alternative to Apple's iPad. Or even better? Look at the following comparisons:

What I am really impressed is the battery's life. The reason is that typical screen that runs with 3 cell battery uses 2watt while this gadget uses new screen technology called "PixelQi" which only uses 0.2watt and therefore it doubles the battery life 10 times longer. Interesting? But for me, the most interesting part is that it uses AndroidOS! <laugh>Bwauhuwhahwa</laugh> It will run on Android 2.2 Froyo but there is a hypothesis saying that it will run on Android 3.0 Gingerbread. Why? It is stated that this Notion Ink's Adam will be available in July but I read a post somewhere saying that it will most probably available in November where by that time Android 3.0 Gingerbread will also be released. But I heard the delay is mainly due to import procedures on the device's parts. Hmmm... November... *liat kalendar*
Another view of the Adam by SlashGear

To read further on this Android Pad, click here. I think future students will only use this kind of "gadget" for their presentations since it has the HDMI output. 160 hours sounds like a handphone's battery life to me hahaha atue lama... Hopefully ianya akan berfungsi seperti yang dijanjikan pasalnya i've heard complaints over Android's phone punya battery life but most probably it is because of the screen's display where people usually forget to balance the screen's brightness... Since this Adam will use PixelQi Technology I think nada masalah la tue insyaAllah...
I think that is it that I wanted to share with all of you for today... Sampai jumpa... Wassalam...

P/S : To ITB/UBD/UNISSA/KUPUSB students, welcome back to school again~ hahaha and oh, tell me if you are using any Android devices (mobile phone, APad etc.) on the comment section =) thanks!
