The Internet and the World Wide Web. It seems as though people use them interchangeably all of the time. They think they are the same thing. They are separate things, though similar.
The internet is a massive network of computers. One computer can connect to another via the internet if both are connected. You likely use the internet for many things, including playing Minecraft (or any other video game) on an external server, downloading games from the app store, or browsing the World Wide Web. It simply connects computers to each other.
The World Wide Web
The World Wide Web is a system based upon the internet, but it is a small portion of it. The World Wide Web uses HTTP (Hyper-Text Transfer Protocol) to send information from servers to your computer. HTTP is only one of the protocols that the internet uses to send information. People use the World Wide Web with a browser, such as Chrome, Firefox, Safari or Internet Explorer, they decode the files and turn them into a hu…
Self-driving cars seem to be inevitable nowadays. It is predicted (by the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers) that by the year 2040 three-quarters of the cars on the road will be self-driving. However, there are some concerns I have with them. This post will address them.
It is not a realistically major concern. I am sure that before they are widely used the major safety concerns will be resolved. However, there might be real problems within the first few years of their main release. You can never be totally safe in any vehicle.
I am certain that when self-driving cars "hit the market" they will likely add tracking features to them to collect data. The reason that they will collect this information is to improve on your car. Kind of like how Windows 10 sends a lot of information about you and how you use Windows to Microsoft. It may be useful for the company, but they collect way too much with little option for consent. Windows, Android, and iO…
Freenom is a service that allows you to get .tk, .ml, .ga, and .cf domain names for free. That is useful, and now all of my domains use that. Well, you might know, I host my Kids and Computers preview website domain (http://kidsandcomputers.tk) with Freenom, but I just went to that website on my tablet, and it gave me an error that my internet was too slow and that my browsing activity is used for ADs! Freenom has too much control over those domains, and I am soon going to just buy a real domain for this website. I encourage anyone wanting a domain name for their website: buy a real domain name, it is only $1 a month! There is too much hassle otherwise.
