Atmosphere (unit)

The ata unit is used in place of atm to indicate that the pressure shown is the total ambient pressure, compared to vacuum, of the system being calculated or measured. For example, for underwater pressures, a pressure of 3.1 ata would mean that the 1 atm of the air above water is included in this value and the pressure due to water would total 2.1 atm. Standard conditions for temperature and pressure. Atmospheric pressure. International Standard Atmosphere.

Apple began using OLED panels in its watches in 2015 and in its laptops in 2016 with the introduction of an OLED touchbar to the MacBook Pro. In 2017, Apple announced the introduction of their tenth anniversary iPhone X with their own optimized OLED display licensed from Universal Display Corporation. Apple has continued the use of the technology in the iPhone X's successors, the iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max. The sheer number of OLED manufacturers in the world today seems to guarantee a steady OLED supply. This, however, might not be the case since almost all of the manufacturers rely on fabrication equipment that is only manufactured by a single company called Canon Tokki.


peripheralsperipheral devicecomputer peripheral
Three categories of peripheral devices exist based on their relationship with the computer: Many modern electronic devices, such as digital watches, smartphones, and tablet computers, have interfaces that allow them to be used as computer peripheral devices. 1) an input device sends data or instructions to the computer, such as a mouse, keyboard, graphics tablet, image scanner, barcode reader, game controller, light pen, light gun, microphone, digital camera, webcam, dance pad, and read-only memory). 2) an output device provides output from the computer, such as a computer monitor, projector, printer, headphones, and computer speaker); and. 3) an input/output device performs both input and output

Accessories that are worn may include jackets, boots and shoes, cravats, ties, hats, bonnets, belts and suspenders, gloves, muffs, necklaces, bracelets, watches, sashes, shawls, scarves, lanyards, socks, pins, piercings, rings, and stockings. The type of accessory that an individual chooses to wear or carry to complement their outfit can be determined by several factors including the specific context of where the individual is going. For example, if an individual is going to work their choice of accessory would differ to one who is going out to drinks or dinner thus depending on work or play different accessories would be chosen.


In 2007, Asus, Dell, and Apple introduced LED backlights into some of their notebook models., Lenovo has also announced LED-backlit notebooks. In October 2008, Apple announced that it would be using LED backlights for all of its notebooks and new 24-inch Apple Cinema Display, and one year later it introduced a new LED iMac, meaning all of Apple's new computer screens are now LED. Almost every laptop with a 16:9 display introduced since September 2009 uses LED-backlit panels. This is also the case for most LCD television sets, which are marketed in some countries under the misleading name LED TV, although the image is still generated by an LCD panel.


In the first several decades of the 20th century, other inventors attempted (unsuccessfully) to use gyroscopes as the basis for early black box navigational systems by creating a stable platform from which accurate acceleration measurements could be performed (in order to bypass the need for star sightings to calculate position). Similar principles were later employed in the development of inertial navigation systems for ballistic missiles. During World War II, the gyroscope became the prime component for aircraft and anti-aircraft gun sights.

Internet of things

IoTInternet of Things (IoT)Internet-of-Things
For instance, using Apple's HomeKit, manufacturers can get their home products and accessories be controlled by an application in iOS devices such as the iPhone and the Apple Watch. This could be a dedicated app or iOS native applications such as Siri. This can be demonstrated in the case of Lenovo's Smart Home Essentials, which is a line of smart home devices that are controlled through Apple's Home app or Siri without the need for a Wi-Fi bridge. There are also dedicated smart home hubs that are offered as standalone platforms to connect different smart home products and these include the Amazon Echo, Google Home, Apple's HomePod, and Samsung's SmartThings Hub.

Post-PC era

consumer trendpost-PCpost-PC trend
The Post-PC era is a market trend observed during the late 2000s and early 2010s involving a decline in the sales of personal computers in favor of post-PC devices; which include mobile devices such as smartphones and tablet computers as well as other mobile computers such as wearable and ubiquitous ones. These devices emphasize portability and connectivity, including the use of cloud-based services, more focused "apps" to perform tasks, and the ability to synchronize information between multiple devices seamlessly. The term was first coined by MIT scientist David D. Clark.


In 2015 Microsoft released Wunderlist for Apple Watch devices. In October 2014, Wunderlist announced its first integration, with cloud storage company Dropbox. Users could now access and link their Dropbox files to their Wunderlist tasks. Later that month, a Calendar Feed feature was released for Wunderlist, allowing a user's pending tasks to appear in other calendar services such as Google Calendar, Microsoft's Outlook Calendar, Apple's Calendar, Slack, and Sunrise Calendar. Wunderlist can export notes to the JSON file format, but cannot save as PDF or HTML.

Pokémon Go

The decision to create the device rather than create a smart watch app was to increase uptake among players for whom a smart watch is prohibitively expensive. It was released in the United Kingdom and North America on September 16, 2016. The game's official launch began on July 6, 2016, with releases in Australia, New Zealand, and the United States. Due to server strain from high demand upon release, Niantic CEO John Hanke stated that the release in other regions was to be "paused until Niantic was comfortable" fixing the issues. European releases started on July 13, and the game became available to most of the continent over the following ten days.

Energy harvesting

thermoelectricsthermoelectricenergy harvester
Some wristwatches are powered by kinetic energy (called automatic watches), in this case movement of the arm is used. The arm movement causes winding of its mainspring. A newer design introduced by Seiko ("Kinetic") uses movement of a magnet in the electromagnetic generator instead to power the quartz movement. The motion provides a rate of change of flux, which results in some induced emf on the coils. The concept is related to Faraday's Law. Photovoltaics is a method of generating electrical power by converting solar radiation (both indoors and outdoors) into direct current electricity using semiconductors that exhibit the photovoltaic effect.

Portable computer

The 2010s introduced wearable computers such as smartwatches. Portable computers, by their nature, were generally microcomputers. Larger portable computers were commonly known as 'Lunchbox' or 'Luggable' computers. They were also called a 'Portable Workstation' or 'Portable PC'. In Japan they were often called 'Bentocom'. from "bento". Portable computers, more narrowly defined, were distinct from desktop replacement computers in that they usually were constructed from full-specification desktop components, and did not incorporate features associated with laptops or mobile devices.
