Although the optical fiber (which is increasingly replacing copper connections) transfers light, it does not travel at the speed of light like it does in vacuum. So instead of the maximum speed of light of about 300,000km/s, in a fiber optic light it is traveling at top speeds for the media - glass, which is about 200,000 km/s, making it slower for a third of the usual speed achieved in vacuum.

3D printers in the fashion world

ditaUntil now, 3D printers were mainly present in engineering and geek domain, but now they have apparently become a part of the mainstream when it comes to a private fashion show at Ace Hotel in Manhattan where Dita Von Teese was wearing dress printed entirely in 3D printer. It is not exactly a dress someone would wear every day as it is made from a pure nylon material, but it is a concept that demonstrates that the 3D printing technology can create garments too.

Should we be more concerned about privacy now?


The election is over and nothing much has changed as far as the balance of power in the US, which makes us wonder if we should be concerned about a free and open internet more than ever. We know that the head of the MPAA Chris Dodd has close ties to the Whitehouse and also to many members of Congress. To make things worse Dodd will be free to openly interact with all of his former buddies sometime in February of 2013. We know that he has, and still is, pushing for laws to monitor and control the internet to protect the interests of the other members of his cartel. However, there is more to this dynamic than we first saw last year during the barrage of ignorant and oppressive laws trying to limit communication (and technological advances) and it has to do with a particular mindset.

Technology and Zombies Don't Mix

Zombie Baby

If you're like most gamers, the thought of the impending zombie apocalypse has probably crossed your mind. Where would you go? How would you get food? Where would you meet up with your loved ones? How would you avoid becoming infected? How would you do this without technology? All great questions to ask.

73Wow… I can remember rather vividly trying to get out of trouble for doing something as a kid with the rather flimsy excuse of “but everyone is doing it”. To make a long story short here, that did not work and I had to face my consequences over my misdeed. So if that excuse does not work with my parents (and believe me it does not work with a traffic cop either). How is it that corporations can get away with it?

DecryptedTech Launches Reader Driven Blogs

Logo-01One thing that I am always interested in is input from others. No matter where I have worked (or what sites I have written for) I have taken the input from readers, manufacturers and even PR companies into account. The reason for this is that no matter what is said (even negative comments can be helpful) there is something to learn. Now, don’t get me wrong, I hate it when it turns out I made a mistake or I misunderstood something or even worse… was just dead wrong. However, it happens and I deal with it.

By now I am sure you are wondering what in the world I am going on about… well it was during a conversation with a reader that I began to come up with an idea. Every site has guest writers and guest bloggers. These are usually famous analyst with names that the sites hope will bring readers (both ones that like the analyst and ones that don’t).  But why should they be the only ones that get to voice their opinion, ideas, observations and thought? Truth be told they should not.

DecryptedTech is happy to announce that starting in November we will be opening a user’s blog on our forum. These articles will be written by our readers for our readers. You will have to be a registered member to read these articles. Once you reach 10 posts (real ones not spam…) you gain full access to the blog pages; once you do you will be able to submit your articles and blogs. All articles will be subject to review by a member of DecryptedTech Staff for appropriate content (no political or religious articles please) full rules will be posted inside the blog area. Each month the community will chose the best article (or review) and that will be published on our main site. The winner author will also win a prize to be determined each month.

The Prize for November will be an Asus M4A89TD Pro complete with an AMD Phenom II X4 965 C3 CPU.

We will open the new section shortly and look forward to reading what everyone has to offer.
