Tesla offers Off-Grid Power

The amazing Power Wall Battery of Tesla was announced last May 2015, the answered to unplug or off-the-grid living or your home totally independence in power source company. Today it is possible to run a home on solar and wind, weather can quickly wreak havoc on your plans and can swiftly bring down even the best off-grid power setup.

Elon Musk’s company Tesla is introducing a new energy storage solution that could revolutionize the renewable energy industry. The Powerwall, or Tesla Home Battery, is a wall-mounted energy storage unit — a rechargeable lithium-ion battery pack– that can hold 10 kilowatt hours of electric energy, and deliver it at an average of 2 kilowatts, all for US$3,500. Powerwall, which works like most other renewable energy storage systems.

Not cheap at all, but eventually it will free us to electric bills hike.

The Powerwall, by Tesla, is designed to hold a lithium-ion battery pack, liquid thermal control system, and software that receives dispatch commands from a solar inverter. It can be easily mounted on the wall and can even be integrated with the local grid for those who are just looking for an emergency backup power solution.

Powerwall: How it works

The Powerwall comes in a 10 kWh weekly cycle — for backup applications — and 7 kWh for daily cycles. If a home/business has a greater energy need, multiple batteries can be stored — up to 90 kWh total for the 10 kWh battery and 63 kWh total for the 7 kWh battery. The Powerwall generates 2.0 kW continuous and 3.3 kW during peak usage. It weighs 220 pounds and can be installed indoors or outdoors. The battery technology is lithium ion.

Tesla claims their battery can provide a number of different benefits to the customer including:

Load shifting – The battery can provide financial savings to its owner by charging during low rate periods when demand for electricity is lower and discharging during more expensive rate periods when electricity demand is higher

Increasing self-consumption of solar power generation – The battery can store surplus solar energy not used at the time it is generated and use that energy later when the sun is not shining

Back-up power – Assures power in the event of an outage

Under promise, under pressure….

Under-promise and over-deliver. How many times have you heard that phrase? Chances are if you’ve been in coding business longer than a year, you’ve heard it at least once if not a dozen times.

As a web developer, we tend to have a wikipedia syndrome, yes I know we are all smart. We never be in the Coding Arena if you are not. A decent programmer has probably an IQ of 125. But sometimes, some of us tend to make over promises and we can do it all syndrome. Yes most probably you can do it and maybe you know someone can help you doing it. But what if???

It’s not the over-delivering part that is dangerous. Over-delivering and WOW-ing your client is good business. It increases client satisfaction, repeat business, and word of mouth which all leads to referrals. You can never add too much value for your clients.

It’s also not the commitment part that is trouble. You must make promises you can keep. This is common sense at it’s best.

A good programmer measure everything, his time, resources, environment and of course skills.

Promises You Intend To Keep
In order to commit with integrity, you must intend to keep your promise, make an under promise statement and you will have less pressure. This implies that you must believe the following:

1. You understand the project. If you don’t understand the conditions of satisfaction (including time), then you cannot expect to fulfill them. You are signing a contract that you haven’t read.

2. You have a robust plan. If your plan can be derailed by likely contingencies, then you cannot expect it to withstand their impact. You are hoping for the best, but not preparing for the worst.

3. You have the necessary skills and resources. If you don’t have the required skills and resources, then you cannot expect to finish the job. You are writing a fraudulent check with no funds in your account.

It will be Google Wave Communication Era

During the Google I/O keynotes, the Google teams introduced the brand new way of communication, the Google Wave.

Google Wave is a preparation to HTML 5 standard and next phase of web interaction such as 3d games, movies, blogs, messaging, map, gallery and other browser plugins. Imagine your email collide with instant messaging on the web.

Google Wave was developed in Australia by Lars, Rasmussen and Hannon.

YouTube, Facebook, Twitter and Plurk Increase Productivity

According to the Australian Study, workplace Internet leisure browsing can increase employees productivity.

Internet workers or web factory workers need to zone out for a bit, short and unobtrusive breaks, such as a watching a 2 mins Youtube video, reading Anime or sharing or ranting at twitter and plurk, enables the mind to rest itself, leading to a higher total net concentration for a days’ work, and as a result, increased productivity.

“People need to zone out for a bit to get back their concentration,” Coker said on the university’s website. However, Coker said the study looked at people who browsed in moderation, or were on the Internet for less than 20 percent of their total time in the office. Nice one Coker… Australian are really cool!
