Mobile Hotspot and Tethering

Mobile Hotspot and Tethering services have been around for some time now. Setting up and using is more straightforward than ever before, which is good in today's connected world.

Wireless is now the most popular method of Internet connectivity, with most, if not all, mobile devices capable of connecting in this way. However, we do not yet live in a world where Wi-Fi is ubiquitously available. This is where tethering capabilities comes in.

If you have ever been on public transport, and found a long list of wireless services available to your mobile phone or Laptop, it is likely due to other passengers setting up their smartphones for tethering purposes.

In this article, we delve deep into what mobile hotspot and tethering is and how it works. We then look at how to set up tethering, which is very straightforward, and highlight a few hints and tips to make the most of your experience.

Algae-Powered Computers?

I was on the latest computer news feed earlier, checking out what's going on in the computer world, and one article caught my eye, so I thought I would share it with you.

The University of Cambridge has developed of powering small computer components using algae!

"The algae harvests energy from the sun through photosynthesis, which generates an electric current". This could be fantastic news for a cheap, green and cleaner power source, for Internet of Things devices that only need small amounts of power.

When you think about the billions of IoT devices that exist today (est. 22 billion at last count), and that will exist tomorrow (est. 50 billion by 2030), that's a lot of power. Food for thought.
