Our hot items include desktops, palmtops, cell phones and all the tools and utilities you need to keep you wired and wireless. "What is human civilization if you look at it one century at a time? Man, aren't we way passed the computer era? Isn't the information age bygone? Haven't we just stepped into the wireland and spun out to the wireless world? You are confused? I will make it simple for you, we are now in the Net World or may be Web World. Still puzzled? I ask you or you tell me: Can you work without the Internet? Can you live without a cell phone? Can you go anywhere and be somebody without a handy gizmo that can take pictures and send them, can download music and play them, can peek into a video conference and surprise them, and can access all your email wherever you are and chuck them, print them or reply them. Man! That is power and man! that is human civilization if you ask me! Who am I to say? I am a chip in a gizmo! I ought to know. The chips made it all happen." - Quote from Dr. Chang with a New York accent.

Quotes About Designs in Computer Gizmos

Some computer gizmos get smaller, some get bigger, some flatter, some thinner, some curvier, some faster, some lighter but never bulkier or heavier, why?  That is because humans, always desire to be superior & in control, are only allowing themselves to get bulkier and heavier with time and humans can always smash any computer gizmo when it gets too smart or refuses to work for its master! ~ IFC

Tips for Shoppers (Click Here for Future Updates on Computers Plus)

Cell phones, Computers and Electronics are fast changing products. It pays to be educated on the basic level to understand their functions and differences. Some products are very hot products and some are highly competitive products. For cell phones, one needs to pay attention to phone rates and new features. For other computer and electronic products, one needs to pay attention to warranties and maintenance contracts. The following table gives shoppers a quick comparison about these products. Be aware that the data does get obsolete rather quickly. Nice thing about telecomputing products is that you can buy more functions for the same price in newer products. So you may just discover you can buy a lot more with the old prices. Don't wait forever, though!

* Comments by Dr. Chang: Making a judgment on display quality and satisfaction is a complex scientific problem due to many variables behaving differently for different display applications. There are many different usage conditions such as indoor vs outdoor, single user vs group viewing, day use vs night use etc etc just under the PC and TV category. Therefore consumers are advised to gain some knowledge before buying a device of thousands of dollars. In addition to LCD and plasma, there are other displays such as electroluminescence film display, offered by a Canadian manufacturer and microdisplay.
