A TV box or streaming stick is the perfect alternative for anyone who wants to stream movies and series from online providers as well as standard TV channels – without sacrificing the enjoyment of a large screen. TV boxes provide all streaming services and TV channels in one device. But which TV box is best for your needs? We compare the best TV boxes available in 2021.
In so far as is possible, the communist state of North Korea has managed to shut itself off from the rest of the world. However a western IT expert recently succeeded in sneaking a peek at their internet domains and as a result we now know that there are only 28 domains for the entire country. From recipes to maritime affairs, here you’ll find an insight into what a North Korean can find online.
Admittedly, automated systems also make mistakes, but overall, it’s quite impressive that online stores can suggest products that users like. By streaming movies and series, the respective platforms are able to 'learn' the users’ tastes and then generate playlists automatically. This isn’t a coincidence, but rather the ability of modern recommendation systems.
Bits and bytes are part of our daily life, whether we’re aware of it or not. They’re the units of measurement for storage capacity and data transmission - meaning that you’ll need to know about them when shopping for a new computer or deciding on a WiFi package. But what is a bit? And how does it differ from a byte? Keep reading to find out more about the smallest unit of information.
Whether you’re working with hard drives, computers, or smartphones - digital applications and storage devices indicate their capacities in bytes. But what is a byte and why do we need it? In short: The byte is the smallest quantity of data and consists of 8 bits. Since computers store a lot of data, bytes can be converted into larger units like megabytes and terabytes. Keep reading to find out how...
Simply explained: an exabyte is equal to one trillion bytes. But few people can actually make sense of a file size this huge. It’s simply not enough to know that a byte consists of eight bits and roughly corresponds to a letter. One thing is for sure, global, monthly data volumes now exceed 174 exabytes and this number is expected to double by 2022. That’s why it’s worth keeping an eye on the...
We tend to work with megabytes and gigabytes on a daily basis. The yottabyte, however – while the largest unit for data volumes – is less well-known. But this unit of information gives an exciting insight into how much data is in circulation worldwide. We’ll explain the size of a yottabyte and how it is converted into other units for storage capacity.
The byte is a unit of information that makes it easy to specify the storage capacity of data carriers. Large units such as petabytes are now commonly used to express growing data volumes globally in simple figures. But what is their capacity? We compare petabytes with known quantities such as megabytes or gigabytes and explain how their conversion works.
Units of storage in computers, such as megabytes and terabytes, refer to quantities of data and storage capacities. Users will be familiar with units like gigabytes as they relate to hard drives and USB sticks. But units like exabytes and zettabytes rarely come up in daily life. Keep reading to find out which storage units exist and what they really mean.
Most of us are already well-acquainted with storage units such as megabytes, gigabytes, and terabytes. But a much larger unit needed to measure the data capacity in use worldwide. The zettabyte has been mapping global data traffic since 2012. But how much data is in a zettabyte? We explain the relationship to better-known units and how their conversion works.
