Medical Technology Choose Blogspot
Based on our experience, finally, Medical Technology choose blogger.com or blogspot as our free blogging platform. In other side, Wordpress.com is blogspot's heavy rivals. Pcworld.com choose blogger.com on their comparison. You can see full article on this rank of blogging platforms
and its full article of blogging platforms comparison
Medical Technology team have another reason.
We choose blogger.com because of some reason:
- customizable CSS (Cascading Style Sheet) → we can use external CSS to load pages faster and more efficient, change the color, background images, column's style, and font's type
- customizable XHTML (eXtended HyperText Markup Language) → recent and common web technology, clean and compact codes
- larger storage capacity → until 300 MB
- simple and more intuitive (user friendly) admin panel → but you will need third party accessories for more convenience
- more free templates available
- add some ads
- more hacks available
But for your consideration, blogger.com users will also:
- get slower access → since Blogger users are increasing
- not convenience of popups comments → could break of accessibility, so you couldn't use back button
- not convenience of chaptcha code → especially for users with disable images mode (volume based charging using GPRS, CDMA, or limited bandwidth per month)
Choose Medical Pocket PC
This post will tell you why we should choose Pocket PC PDA (Personal Digital Assistant) technology for medical purposes.
Pocket PC has a great improvement on PDA business. It has great on PDA market share today. Free medical application is growing on Pocket PC device. Some users feel Pocket PC PDA has more friendly interface especially for Windows users.
Pocket PC PDA is multitasking, need high speed processor, great capability on multimedia, so it take power consumption and relatively slower. Pocket PC is nice for medical and entertainment purposes.
Pocket PC has a regular WiFi built-in as their standard on the market today. Slimmest body from iPAQ series, high resolution from Toshiba series, camera, bluetooth, faster processor, and increase internal memory are common models for Pocket PC now.
Some of medical application's size for pocket pc are bigger than palm.

Doctors and medical students with pocket pc will be able to read simple Office application (MS Word, PowerPoint, Excel) but can not edit it without additional softwares.
Choose Medical Palm PDA
This post will tell you why we should choose Palm PDA (Personal Digital Assistant) technology for medical purposes.
Palm is an old player on PDA business. Since monochrome until high color resolution. There are a lot of free medical application on the web. Try to find medical eBook, eText, calculator, etc. The amount is more than Windows Mobile (Pocket PC) has. In some countries maybe we will find PPC users is greater than Palm.
Palm PDA is not multitasking, so it save power consumption and faster. Even multimedia is not as good as PPC, but it is enough for medical purposes.
In the old, we'll difficult to find Palm PDA series of technology with WiFi built-in. Even we can add an external utilities by using WiFi SDIO port.
Palm PDA technology is more user friendly for some of our medical practice since they do not need much game and multimedia application.
Office mobile application is better on Palm. Palm PDA has a Documents To Go to do a syncronization well.
If you choose PDA for your medical practice, we think Palm PDA is the choice.

If you think it is the same as Palm PDA (personal digital assistant) and Windows Mobile (Pocket PC) which can install some mobile medical applications, you maybe sligthly wrong. Because Apple iPhone is closed system yet.

Mac Newbie and CDMA
As a Mac newbie
you can easily make an Internet connection with your CDMA
(Code Division Multiple Access) phone technology. Mac and CDMA technology can make your mobile Internet access available when there is no WiFi (Wireless Fidelity) signal. Mac and CDMA configuration is same easy as Windows and GNU/Linux. We wil use Nokia mobile phone (N3205) and its original data cable (CA-42). Better use an original data cable for stable connection.
CA-42 USB data cable usually detected automaticaly as Prolific chipset (pl2303) on Mac laptop. If no, do manual installation using Internet Connect application for usbserial.
You can download modem script on Taniwha
Put modem script in your Mac directory (HD/Library/Modem Scripts).
Check your » system preferences, » network, » choose usbserial, » click modem tab, » choose modem type (modem script).
Do a dial up using number #777 on Internet Connect application.
Because CDMA connection means volume based charging, maybe you'll need some tips and tricks for your browser:
- disable images
- save cookies
- save passwords
and choose the right time: not in a busy hour.
for your Mac system: disable any auto update.
Keep enjoy with your Mac laptop
Mac Newbie on Laptop
As a medical student and a Mac newbie
, I have no time to digg this technology. Mac users claim its Apple technology is the best in this technology era. First impression, it is so beautiful. It's really fast. Their desktop widgets are so useful. Do not waste your time to make some laptop configuration, just use your Mac laptop. Yup, back to your work.
All of its software bundle just work out of box. Try iLife, Comic Life, Omni Graffle, World Book Encyclopedia, and iApps such as Grapher, Terminal, etc.
Virus? With Mac laptop , you don't need a busy work to do a regular virus update such as Windows users. Throw away of virus, worm, adware, etc. Really easy for a Mac newbie on laptop.
Driver? Almost all of your devices will be driverless, just plug in and you are ready to use your technology. Flashdisks, digital cameras, iPods, memory cards, etc. Even no restart required. Mac laptop has a bluetooth and firewire connection built-in as their standard.
But there is nothing perfect.
The white cover need an extra treatment. There is available a black Mac laptop with the expensive price.
And you'll need an extra device if you want to make a connection with projector or external display. By default, you can not do that and you need tu buy a Mini-DVI to VGA adapter or Mini-DVI to DVI adapter (depend on your external display based).
Enjoy the Mac international guarantee. Buy only the original Mac laptop
from your trust agent or reseller.
The limit is just your creativity.
