Wolfram Alpha, Computational Knowledge Engine

After using a new web browser, now I want to share about a new search engine, Wolfram Alpha. Or it is more approriate if we call it, a computational knowledge engine.

Actually, like his name, Wolfram Aplpha is designed to solve a knowledge question. It best solve nearly any mathematical equation.

For example, when you enter a series of numbers, such as 2, 4, 6, 8 in the search box, in seconds, some possible answer appears...
Look at the picture I've shoot...

The answers the search engine gave, almost complete, from genetaring function, statistics, until the chart.

Another example, when you entry a question about, who is president of indonesia, the answer will looks like this...

You can use it to solve some arithmatic function. You enter your question or calculation, and Wolfram|Alpha uses its built-in algorithms and growing collection of data to compute the answer.

My Web Broser, My Google Chrome

Almost a week recently, I have used Google Chrome as my new web browser. Sounds late, is it? Though Google Chrome has already launched at September 2008, but I'm interested in just recently. That's because my firefox doesn't work well.

I pointing the most advantages using a Google Chrome is it loads very fast, much much faster than others browser, such Firefox and IE. That makes Google Chrome different than others.

Here's another benefit using Google Chrome which I took from some article:

New Features

When you open a new tab in Chrome you have some interesting options. You have the 9 most visited sites in the main part of the window, on the right there is a search bar, a list of your recent bookmarks and a list of recently closed tabs. Pretty much the things that you would need or want to access.

There is also a small link on the bottom left that shows your full history, so you really do have access to anything that you have been recently working on. The site history does not open in a small sidebar, it opens in the full page. There is also a search function for your history. This is a great improvement on the other browsers.

There is also a full list of Chrome features, each with a 30 second video, on the Google Chrome site.

Since we spend so much time online, we began seriously thinking about what kind of browser could exist if you started from scratch and built on the best elements out there. We realized that the web had evolved from mainly simple text pages to rich, interactive applications and that we needed to completely rethink the browser. What we really needed was not just a browser, but also a modern platform for web pages and applications, and that's what Google set out to build.

In theory, each tab works as a stand alone browser. If one tab crashes the others do not crash. At least this is what they say, I have not had a crash yet to let you know it it works.

Google claims that there is "improved speed and responsiveness across the board". I find this an understatement. This is the fasted browser on the internet today. They also say that they built V8, a more powerful JavaScript engine, to power the next generation of web applications that aren't even possible in today's browsers. This seems true to me, and only time will tell. (like written by Richard Mclaughin)

Civil Servant Recruitment 2009

A few time a go, some of Government Department have opened Civil Servant Recruitment.
They are Dept. Of Foreign Affairs, Department of Finance, and the newest one is Department of Industry.

Three of them have already opened the process recruitment and accepted formation for civil servant candidate from Diploma and Bachelor Degree, exclude Departement of Finance. At this time, Department of Finance only opened formation from Vocational High School.

This year, I've already applied for Department of Industry and also Department of Foreign Affairs.
I've already pass the online exam (Dept. of Industry) and now wait for the document validation.
Difference with Dept. of Industry, Dept. of Foreign Affairs doesn't held an online exam. The first exam is written test and it will be held on August, 26th (if I'm not mistaken).

I just pray for my luck. May God help me. Amin.

When you own a business, Joining trade show exhibits can be a great idea to showcase and sell your products. Promoting your products using a right trade show display, is a best way to attract and gain new potential customers, since it makes individuals aware of your business and what it has to offer.

To make your booth successfull, you need to be more creative. You need to think what you can use and what you can do (effectively) with all the space and stuff you have in your exhibition. However, choosing a right exhibition stuffs is extremely IMPORTANT.

As I ever told in my post before, Camelback Displays, Inc can be your choice. This company has lot experiences in offering every type of exhibits made today, since 1999.
For example, when you think that you can do something with your single table, then you can use a good combination of both table top display and table cover.
What can Camelback help you with this stuffs?
Well, Camelback offers you a huge variety of table top displays. You can choose which best for your exhibitions, from the pop ups one, panel systems, hybrids, briefcase style and more. In addition, you can also buy it on your budget.
Combine with table top display, you can get unique printed table covers or a blank one. Of course you can also use it for a meeting puspose in your office. Just use it as You Love...

As unseparate part of your table, when you need to sit on, you can use Camelback directors chairs. It is very stylish since you can choose the printed one or the left blank. And the good news, whether the material from hardwood or metal, you can still buy it with a factory price. Interesting, huh?
