Google has recently gone public with a new image compression format known as WebP which claims to cut the current size of images by up to 40 percent.
A Sky News Survey found that more people would opt to cut back on food rather than give up their broadband connection if money became. This gives an indication as to exactly how important the internet has become and shows that for many it has now necessity rather than a luxury.
Here at Advanced Web Designs we have been very busy over the last few months developing some interesting websites for Hertfordshire based customers. The culmination of all our hard work has meant that we have recently launched a number of new websites and are just finishing a few more which will be going live very soon.
Intel just in the last week has announced the world’s first silicon based optical data connection that incorporates lasers. Distance is vastly extended over current copper technology as well as allowing greater speeds of 50 gigabits per second. For those who aren’t technically minded, that’s the equivalent of 1 High Definition film being transmitted every second.
The higher speed access home users have means that web designers can make more graphic or media rich websites. Whether you’re on a home computer or a mobile phone, speed is extremely important. Japan has just announced that their networks will soon be able to take advantage of 42Mbps HSPA data directly to their phone.
