Sharp Introduces Microbe Sensor for Fast, Automatic Measurement and Visualized Count of Airborne Microbes

Tokyo, Sept 26, 2013 - (JCN Newswire) - Sharp Corporation has developed a microbe sensor that quickly and automatically measures the amount of airborne microbes such as bacteria and mold spores. The product will go on sale to corporate customers starting in October 2013. Worksites in industries such as food processing and pharmaceuticals manufacturing need to prevent contamination of products by airborne microbes by continuously monitoring the level of these microbes in the air. Currently in widespread use for the detection of microbes is the petri dish culturing method, in which microbes are cultivated in a petri dish and then monitored. However, this method takes skilled workers from several days to a week to perform manually, and it cannot be used to provide real-time, accurate measures of microbe concentrations. Sharp's newly developed sensor takes in air from the... (more)

My Thoughts on the Apple iPad

iPhone Apps on Ulitzer iPhone Apps on Ulitzer - The Apple iTablet or iSlate is due to be shown off to the world January 27th, and unleashed on us sometime in March. The blogosphere has been buzzing about the topic. Joe Wilcox of BetaNews.com said “The world doesn’t need an Apple Tablet, or any other” (full post here). MG of TechCrunch followed up with “The World Doesn’t Need Someone Telling Us What We Don’t Need In Tech” (full post here).  I think both writers make some good points, but I wanted to give my thoughts, and ask the readers of CTOvision theirs. The Apple Tablet is rumored to cost $1000. So the first word that comes to my mind is “overpriced.”  When you can purchase a decent netbook for under $300, a solid ultra-portable 12-14″ (laptop) for $500, and a good business laptop for under $700…why would you ever pay $1000 for a simple tablet?  Quite frankly, I...
