The Techonomy Detroit conference.
For years, Detroit’s IT presence was driven by the auto industry. Within the last five years, though, the tech scene has moved well beyond the Big Three due in large part to an explosive growth in mobile and cloud technologies. When I came to the city six years ago, Detroit’s tech scene was insignificant compared to what it has become now. Today downtown is thriving with young, passionate developers who want to be a part of the revitalization of Detroit through IT. Over the last few years thousands of new tech jobs have been created or have moved into the city.
Whether it’s creating a better user experience or revolutionizing the media industry, these Detroiters are busy building a community of technology-based startups that is helping solve the city’s larger economic problems, bringing economic diversity to the city and turning Detroit into a tech hub.
Over the past two years, this revolution has been driven by the start of Compuware Ventures, Detroit Venture Partners, and Detroit Labs. Other companies such as Galaxe Solutions, Quicken Loans, and Atomic Object have recently moved downtown further energizing the city’s tech community.

Here are some ways you can care for your computer:
i. Do not drop or bump your computer.-The case although strong may not support extra support on it.
ii. Always carry it in a carrying case while traveling.
iii. Magnetic fields can destroy data on your hard drive or diskettes so keep your computer and any kind of diskettes away from magnetic field.
iv. The data on the hard drive could be lost if you turn off your computer while the light on the hard drive is still on.
v. Keep your computer at a temperature that you are comfortable with or else the case may become very brittle or easy to break in cold conditions and can melt or wrap in warm conditions. Damages by extreme conditions are not repaired through warranty.
vi. Any sort of liquid accident can be very expensive and would not be covered under your warranty so keep liquids away from your computer. Dust and dirt can clog the internal mechanisms so avoid dusty and dirty work places.
vii. Keep your computer running at its best by setting up a regular maintenance schedule.
Why is it important to back up a file?
Backing up a file protects us from losing important information if the hard drive crashes or accidentally deletes files. This might be caused if the computer crashes or a virus infects the computer and start deleting files. Backing up files and removing them from your computer also provides space for new files. External hard drives or other high capacity backup devices can be used to do a complete hard drive back up.

Apple is expected to drop the numbering moniker from its next-generation iPad, calling it the iPad HD instead of iPad 3, according to reports. The HD would stand for the higher-resolution Retina display, which would have double the linear resolution of the current iPad 2 screen.
HD moniker makes sense
By all accounts, calling the new tablet iPad HD makes sense. That’s mainly because the most notable feature of the new Apple tablet is meant to be the higher-resolution display, which would have double the linear resolution of the iPad 2, from 1024 by 768 pixels to 2048 by 1536 pixels.
The iPad HD display’s resolution would be higher than full 1080p HD video resolution at 1920 by 1080 pixels, and should display much sharper images. At 9.7 inches and double the current resolution, an iPad 3 display would have just over 260ppi pixel density. The only comparable Android tablet at this resolution is the Transformer Pad Infinity 700, with a 10.1-inch 1,920 by 1,200 pixels resolution screen.
Another significant feature that could make its way onto the iPad HD is 4G LTE connectivity and a quad-core chip dubbed the A6. The chip would have twice the power of the dual-core A5 found in the iPad 2 and iPhone 4S, making it powerful enough to drive the high-resolution display.
