April 26, 2012

CPU (Central Processing Unit) is the portion of a computer system that carries out the instructions of a computer program, to perform the basic arithmetical, logical, and input/output operations of the system.

A BYOD policy, or bring-your-own-device policy, is a set of rules governing a corporate IT department’s level of support for employee-owned PCs,  Smartphones and tablets.

QR Codes (Quick Response Code) enable you to bookmark an web page with your mobile phone quickly and easily. Our URLs can get very long: “www.ecb.europa.eu/paym/sepa/benefits/consumers/html/index.en.html” is one example. But with a QR code there is no need to type the full URL into your phone, instead you simply scan the image. Your phone reads it, converts it back into the URL and stores it as a bookmark. Then you can use your phone to go online to that page.
