Present Technology and Their Future Replacements

Published

on

Fast -paced ever growing technology has made some past tech such as vacuum tubes look like a joke dumb thing.
Not long will the present tech you are using right now go obsolete and so much useless. 
I compiled a list of technologies that will fade in time, and their future replacements which are already invoke.
You Google up any of them if you want to.

LCD Television – OLED Television
Liquid Crystal Display is low-end when it is matched with OLED (organic light emitting diode). New televisions now come with a curved OLED display cause of the more flexibilty of the OLED tech.

LED Bulbs – OLED Light Bulbs
LED bulbs are cool but OLED powered bulbs are beyond being cool. OLED bulbs make better beautiful lights, and it shares some similarities with the OLED display.

Physical Storage Drives – Cloud Based Storage
Next generation storage is Cloud based. The competition is on, Google Drive, One Drive and I-Cloud now render cheap service of up to 250GB or even more. Physical storage is way less convienient when it comes to retrieving archives. Next gen cannot do without archives

Physical Gaming Consoles – Cloud Based Gaming
Oh gaming has now gone cloud with Nvidia not wanting to be left out. Years o come Nvidia Cloud bases console free gaming will swarm the world.
Consider, for example, NVIDIA’s GeForce Now game-streaming service, which allows gamers to instantly stream more than 100 AAA games instantly at 60 frames per second and 1080 resolution, all with ultra-low latency and without requiring updates or downloads. 

Wired Charging – Wireless Charging
Samsung is not smiling at all. Galaxy S7 comes with wireless charging features. Wired charging is not sweet ,wireless is sweeter. Time will tell, when every electric device will go wireless charging.

Train – Hyperloop
Super speed travel means would kick out regular trains in no time. Hyperloop moves at an speed faster than trains because of it’s near vacuum tracks.

Remote Control – Amazon Echo
Yes no more physical remote, very soon amazon echo will take over. Echo is a voice-command device you can just tell a thing and consider it done.
The hands-free, voice-controlled product allows users to do everything from ordering a pizza to playing music, calling a ride from Uber, controlling their smart-home devices, and buying items from Amazon.com itself, to name only a few.

Passwords – Facial recognition
Aside finger print sensors facial recognition is the new thing.passwords are easily forgotten but a safe locked with your face can always open on with your face. Unless you apply too much make-ups and it fails to recognize you.funny.
but the thing is make-ups don’t hamper facial recognition.

MTN APN Configuration That Works – Mobile and Modem

Published

on

MTN APN is what is required to enable internet connection on your phone. APN is an acronym for Access Point Name. Access Point Name is typically the name of the gateway connecting your internet enabled device to the web through an internet service provider, such as MTN.

Most often we run into the problem of missing APN configuration and can’t surf the web with our phone or modem. If you have your APN configured before now and you still cannot browse, make the listed below are in order.

  • Data subscription balance
  • Data monitor app threshold
  • Other phones of same network can browse. Your inability to browse could be a general problem from the service provider at the moment.
  • Network signal reception

In Nigeria you can fall into the hands of the wrong people, who will charge you high amount of money in the name of configuring your phone for browsing.

To get the configuration pushed automatically to your phone by MTN.

Send as a text message “Settings” to 3888. Without quotes.

If the above method fails to get you APN configuration, you can fall back to configuring it yourself which always works.

For Mobile phones, navigate to “mobile network” in settings through more connections option, and you should see APN configuration option there.

Note: If your device works just fine, you are advised not to go further. But if for a reason you deleted the pre-installed APN configuration and you want to get it back. You’re welcome. The configurations work for 2G, 3G and 4G network type.

Access Point Name is unique to every service provider and can come pre-configured in SIM cards. When you slot in a new SIM card into a phone, it goes through it’s initiation to the service provider’s system. The service provider can then push necessary configurations to the device. Devices with MTN SIM card making an internet connection must be configured with an APN to present to MTN.

MTN will then examine this APN to determine what type of connection should be created, for example: which IP addresses should be assigned to the wireless device, which security methods should be used, etc. All of which is done in a second by a programmed system.

Hard to say:
