Computer Hardware Buyers’ Glossary


Open Source

I personally believe open source is most important is in the operating system and in file formats. As long as those two things remain open source you can never have a monopoly. No company can dominate by any means except a superior product and that puts the choice back into the hands of the public.

Medication Alarm

There are people who become dangerous if they go off their medications, but are just fine if they take them regularly. Similarly there are people who are forgetful who can be at risk of dying if they don’t take their meds. What we need is a tiny embedded meter than measures the concentration of a medication and if it is dangerously low or high, sends out an emergency cellphone signal with the GPS (Global Positioning System) coordinates. Early versions would need an external pack for battery and most of the electronics.
