Electrical Engineering Blog

Electrical engineering started as a branch from the Physics science, in the MIT they started teaching electrical engineering in Physics College.

Nowadays, it is amazing how Electrical engineering evolved into a multi-discipline science itself.

The internet, as to many sciences, is a number one resource for electrical engineering.

Check out :

http://engineering.electrical-equipment.org/

They call it "Electrical engineering Blog".

It doesn't cover all electrical engineering, yet I can see it focuses primarily on power and energy plus electrical distribution.

Still, it is a useful resource for electrical engineers.

From a TV addict

What am I saying? most of us are TV addicts!
There is at least on TV show for each person on earth.
As all electronics do, TV evolved, and new technologies emerged just to add more entertainment to your living room.

Years ago, what is so called HDTV (High Definition TeleVision) slim, and elegant devices that are light weight, have amazing images, and kind of multi-use (I use mine as  a monitor for my mini Mac), and you can mount it almost everywhere (on top of your bed if you want!).

It is some times interesting to know how these elegant babies work, and to read tips and tricks, and sometimes guides if you're shopping for a new HDTV (weather it's plasma or LCD).

This a web site from Canada that contains such information:

http://www.hdtv.ca/

It has brief articles, with a forum, with easy jargon-free language, easy even for non-technical users.

Are you a Fish ?

"You know technology is like a huge ocean with no limits, sometimes you feel like a fish, that no matter how lost you are, you still can't live outside the ocean".

Husam Sarris

The website that inspired the quote above is http://www.programmerfish.com/




it is a well organized web site dealing with technical news, though some times they provide tips and tricks, and programming guides.

The name implies that it is some how, software focused. Yet there are also gadgets news, company news...etc.

Those Deitel Guys !

I must tell you, when I'm shopping for IT books (or looking for them in a library), I'm always intrigued by the "Deitel & Deitel" Books.

When I ran into their website I found that there is more.



If you log into http://www.deitel.com/ you will find some reviews of their books, but if you click on the "Resource Centers" tab you will find a large number of IT topics.


Pressing on one topic (say iPhone App Development) you will get a wealth of links to external web sites, and articles full of tips and resources for the subject you chose.

Click on the "Tutorials" Tab, and just dive into a see of articles full of tips, guides, for many programming languages and platforms.



I'm sure you'll love the Deitel Guys the way I do ;-)
