In honor of the new IPhone release, here’s hoping that haven’t changed the greatness that is Siri’s smart aleck replies:

iphoen4

You: What is the meaning of Life?

Siri: Try and be nice to people. Avoid eating fat. Read a good book every now and then.

You: Will you marry me?

Siri: My end user licensing agreement does not cover marriage. My apologies

You:  What’s the best phone?

Siri: Wait… there are other phones? I think we both know that answer

You: Tell me a joke

Siri:I can’t. I always forget the punch line

You: Who’s your daddy?

Siri: You are. Can we get back to work now?

You: What are you wearing?

Siri: Aluminosilicate glass and stainless steel.  Nice, huh?

You: Who made you?

Siri: Like it says on the box… I was designed by Apple in California

You: “I need to hide a body.”

Siri: “What kind of place are you looking for?” — and she offers you a tappable list of choices like Reservoirs, Metal Foundries, Mines, Dumps and Swamps.

You: “Open the pod bay doors.”

Siri: “I’m sorry. I’m afraid I can’t do that.” Then: “Are you happy now?”

You: “How much wood would a woodchuck if a woodchuck could chuck wood?”

Siri: “42 cords of wood, to be exact. Everyone knows that.”

Are Smart Watches The New Smart Phone?

metal industry, shanghai metal corporation, Stainless, Steel, technology

Remember back to when you played as a child: talking into your wristwatch communicator Knight Rider style. Now these fantasies have been realized in the new wearable computing innovation.smartwatch1

A torrent of new smart watches from small startup companies, including Pebble and MegaWatch, hit the market in 2013, and big companies have arrived as well: Sony, Samsung, LG, and Qualcomm all offer smart watches. Rumor has it that Apple will be joining the crowd later this year. And Google recently launched a new operating system, called Android Wear, that’s designed specifically for wearable-technology devices. LG, Samsung, and Motorola, among others, are making smart watches that run on this new OS. 

But, are mainstream consumers ready for smart watches? According to a Parks Associates survey released in June of this year, just 4 percent of U.S. broadband households say they are very likely to purchase a smart watch in the next 12 months.

Most of the watches on the market today are what you might call “fashionably challenged” – they simply aren’t attractive enough to entice the masses. Moreover, Buzzfeed reports that lefties have been left out of the design, with humorous revisions to the current models proposed.

Motorola has bucked this trend, and has gone high class with a stainless steel casing and Horween leather bands, bringing a level of style other leather and cheaper metal options the other manufacturers had yet to try.

Top 10 Countries For Internet Speed

Stainless, Steel

If you thought it was South Korea , you were mistaken. South Korea’s speed is down 13% last year and has been surpassed by Hong Kong. Hong Kong benefits from its top rate infrastructure and money from the world over. Internet speeds averaged 9.3 Mbps last year, up 5.4% from a year ago. This compares to average mainland China internet speeds of just 1.7 Mbps.

worldinternetspeeds

Next on the list as you can see are the usual suspects, Singapore and Northern European countries though Macau has made the cut this year with 40 mbps according to netindex.

These innovations in internet speeds can largely be accredited to the commercialization of fibre optics. About 20 years ago, companies which provide telecommunications services, particularly Internet providers, realized the immense potential of fiber optic cables. These foresighted companies began installing fiber optic cables everywhere, and for a long time the cost of these services was too high for the average consumer. However, as these companies recoup their massive installation costs as more customers sign up for service, the costs are now affordable even for small businesses and home users. Here’s how fiber optics are changing the Web, and indeed, the world.

fibreoptics

The differences in fiber optic Internet services, as opposed to the older copper wire technology used by dial-up Internet services, are significant. First, users never have to worry about a poor quality connection causing loss of service. Second, fiber optics eliminate the lengthy wait times for Web pages to load, messages to be transmitted, or images to upload. Fiber optics are ideal for an interconnected world such as ours, because it allows for real-time experiences on social media sites, such as Facebook, YouTube, Limewire, Skype, and other sites heavy on audio and video.

It also has practical and useful business applications. Shanghai Metal manufactures the stainless steel strip used for optical fiber cable protection tubes.

Imagine a Summer Without Air Conditioning

Uncategorized

Picture this: It’s 35°C, there’s no air conditioning, and you’re packed into a subway of sweaty people. The last generation doesn’t need to imagine in –they lived it.

sweaty2

Before AC, most industry traditionally slowed or stopped in the summer, when buildings were hot and workers were sluggish. Back then, many workers around the world got month long August vacations similar to what workers still get in Europe today, where AC isn’t as popular.

sweaty3

The development of effective temperature control and refrigeration has revolutionized almost every aspect of industry. Without AC, the following things would be virtually impossible: the manufacture of computers and chip sets; data storage centers; the production, delivery, and storage of food; pharmaceutical manufacturing; and chemical manufacturing.

aircon2

AC allowed for exponential advances in medicine and human life expectancy. Air-conditioned hospitals helped defeat malaria, decrease infant mortality, inhibit bacteria, and advance developments in surgery.

airconditioner1

So the humble AC has been life changing, and not just on our comfort levels.

Shanghai metal produces the stainless steel tubes for electric climate products. High-temperature resistant wire is distributed evenly in the stainless steel seamless pipes, while good quality crystallized magnesium oxide powder is filled in the gap. As a result, the heater has not only a sophisticated structure, but also high efficiency. To find out more, please visit our websiteLinkedInTwitter, and Facebook.
