With the influx of Technology in almost every sphere of our lives, most of us claim to be tech-savvy. We text message in the blink of an eye, use Bluetooth while driving, and debug programs in a jiffy. However, many of us may not have a clear concept about each and every ‘bit and byte’ of the tech world.
Here is a list of the Top 10 Tech concepts that you should have learnt.
10. Windows Registry
The Windows Registry is a hierarchical database that stores the configuration settings of the operating system as well as application software that are installed in your PC. It is simply a database that stores your computer hardware, software, user settings, security and property settings for folders and programs. It is an important part place in the Windows OS, where most of the apps are stored.
9. SSL Encryption/HTTPs
HTTPs stands for Hypertext Transfer Protocol Secure and is a URL scheme that is in sync with the normal HTTP connections, but has an additional signal that secures the browser with an encryption layer of SSL/LS to protect the traffic.
It is a combination of HTTP and SSL/TLS protocols to provide encrypted communication and secure identification of a web server. The SSL encryptions are usually used for payment transactions or sensitive corporate information that passes through the World Wide Web.
8. Network Neutrality
As the name suggests, Net Neutrality is all about creating a neutral Internet. It is also known as Internet neutrality or Network Neutrality. According to this concept, Internet traffic should be treated equally. The term also supports the view that Internet should be an open platform, just like any other home utility, as it has now become a necessary part of our daily lives.
Net Neutrality believes in no restrictions by the Internet Service Providers (ISPs) and governments on sites, content and the types of commodities that are attached to the modes of communication.
4G is the fourth generation of wireless cellular standards in telecommunications. The peak speed requirements for 3G service is 100 Mbit/s for high mobility communication and 1Gbit/s for low mobility communication. A 4G system provides a secure mobile broadband solution to smartphones, wireless modems and laptops. Internet access, IP telephony, gaming services and multimedia streaming services are all provided by the 4G system. Technologies such as WiMAX and LTE are 4G technologies.
6. Lossless and Lossy Music
Usually, audio compression comes in two forms-lossless compression and lossy compression. In the lossless audio format, the audio files retain every bit of information that is found in the original so that nothing is lost.
The lossy format is the audio compression that loses some of the information found in the original, especially when you are compressing the file to make it smaller. The MP3 format is the lossy compression format. Here the very high and the very low frequencies are often skipped during compression.
