Computer Tips From a Computer Guy

This is the title our blogger chose for his blog Online Tech Tips

What I like about this blog is the amount of "How To's" it's covering, and for a wide range of readers from beginners to advanced tech professionals (even though it seems as it is serving beginners mostly).

So log on to http://www.online-tech-tips.com/
Check it out, you might find something you like.

Automation, Instrumentation....anyone?

Let's face it; there is a lack of informative sites that talk about instrumentation.

As an instrumentation engineer, I used to spend a lot of time searching on the web for such web sites.
I was lucky to find some websites, or to explore websites referred by friends.
else, I shall have to go to instruments companies websites, where they try to lead you to use their products.

http://www.automation.com/ is one of these informative sites that I was lucky to find.

Actually, it's kind of a comprehensive instrumentation site.

They have everything from  a web store for instrumentation products.
an index of suppliers, and products where you can search both.
 Tons of articles, tutorials, and best of all "Instrumentation stories" where you can check solutions made in different places.

And above all, a "Resources" link.

I'd say it's a relatively rich resource.

Check it out and enjoy.




Book of the Day

I will try to stick to the subject of the post when I pick the book of the day.
This is a book that will teach you the basics of instrumentation, and will add more of course.

Enjoy it :

All About Symbian.

I don't know about you people, but these days I'm into mobile computing, and big time!

Smart phones are being spread between people like fire in a hay barn!

http://www.allaboutsymbian.com/ is more like a news site for the Symbian operating system (A very famous operating system for mobile phones running on mobile devices from different manufacturers such as Nokia, Sony Ericsson, and others).

It also has links for developement websites, you can access them by clicking "Developer" link on the menubar.

It also contains useful forums with various subjects. A section for reviews, and other useful links.

You have to give it a visit :)


Book Of The Day:
I picked up this book, since our subject today is about Symbian.
It's called "Porting to Symbian" For those who would like to port their applications from other operating systems to Symbian.
you can download it from the following link (No viruses guaranteed):
