Mouses vs. Mice

September 29th, 2009 Comments off

The term �mouse� describes the electronic devices that we use to control our computers. The reason why this device was called a mouse was that in the development lab initially the cord was going from the back of the mouse. This looked like a tail so the device was called a mouse. Later on the term mouse was still being used, although our devices do not resemble that much the furry creates they are being called. Anyway, the question is whether we should use the plural term mouses or mice. The truth is that the plural of this device should be determined by common usage. If this is the case, then both mice and mouses are acceptable. I suggest using the term mouses as it avoids confusing peripheral input devices with rodents; however, you can use either one.

One of the features that I like about PCs is the fact that I can use shortcuts to open various programs, and perform various tasks without using my mouse. In a room where there are many computers, mouses can be quite annoying. I do not have anything against mouses, but for some people it is difficult to concentrate on performing their tasks when there are many people in a room clicking on mouses. That is especially true if people are clicking on mouses repeatedly within a short interval of time. Many believe that if you learn how to perform so many tasks by using a keyboard, then your productivity might get higher. That is why using shortcuts might be a good idea.

iTunes or CDs?

September 3rd, 2009 Comments off

There has been a study done that suggests that people are abandoning compact disks in order to buy music from stores like iTunes. This is especially true of teenagers, as half of them do not buy a single compact disk even during a whole year. In 2006 the number of teenagers that did not buy a CD was around 40% according to a study. This shows a quite drastic trend, as at the same time the sale of digital songs grew fifty percent. This is mostly due to iTunes, which appeared to be an excellent business idea. The reason that many people are using their services is that you do not even have to leave your home to buy any music you want. Buying music this way is a very simple process. Additionally, you can find what you are looking for a faster than in a traditional store. Another reason is that the cost of storing music digitally like iTunes does is very low, and as a result customers pay less for their favorite music. On the other hand, traditional stores need a lot of space to store their CDs.
I think that the fact that the Internet is getting more and more popular each year is one of the main factors of the decline of the popularity of CDs. People spend a lot more time on the Internet, so it is natural for them to buy music online.
