How to pick the best gaming headset in five steps

Comments Off on How to pick the best gaming headset in five steps

Gaming headsets improve your gaming experience a lot. For one, a good headset will make you feel like you are in the game itself, surrounded by all the sounds. Secondly it will help you locate your opponents even better so that you are always one step ahead of them. And last but not least a gaming headset will help you to communicate with your team members and other players. This makes it a very valuable addition to your gaming gear. But how do you pick the right headset? In this article we will give you five steps to follow so you can come to a selection that will fit your needs.

Step 1: Your platform

The first step is to take into account the platform you will use your gaming headset for. Especially when you are looking for a wireless gaming headset is important to check if they can connect to your PC, Xbox, PlayStation or Nintendo. Wired headset often have a 3.5mm jack that will fit most consoles and PC. Still sometimes the sound is not compatible with your platform so always check this first.

Step 2: Wireless or wired gaming headset?

Wireless and wired gaming headsets both have their advantages and disadvantages. A wireless headset gives you more freedom and the wire won’t be in the way while gaming. On the other hand, wireless gaming headsets have a battery that often makes them more heavy than wired headsets. Also the battery can run out so you will have to pay attention to that. Lastly the wireless versions are often platform specific, so pay attention to that. Especially when you play on different platforms a wired headset might be the better option.

Step 3: Sound quality of the headset

The quality of the sound can vary a lot between different headsets. Broadly speaking there are there different type of sound qualities:

Stereo Sound: the sound comes from two audio channels, which makes it quite straightforward. It is great sound for watching a movie or listen to music, but when you are gaming you might not be able to hear specifically where your opponents are.

7.1 Virtual Surround Sound: with this type of sound the sound comes from 7 audio channels, thereby improving your ability to hear where the sound (and opponents) are coming from. This can give you an edge while gaming, but when you also want to watch movies with it or listen to music this might not be the best option.

Dimensional Sound: in terms of the spatiality of sound this is even one step better than 7.1 virtual surround sound. However this type of sound is not yet supported for all games so check this with your favorite games before you invest in a gaming headset with this new technology.

Step 4: Comfort

When you are gaming you might wear your headset for multiple hours at a time. Then comfort is also an important aspect to think about. First of all you need to choose between on-ear or over-ear ear cups. On-ear cups will give you a bit more natural sound and it will become less hot in the summer. Over-ear cups will completely block out sounds around you and give you the best in-game experience. The disadvantage is that it might get very warm in the summer while gaming.

Other things to think about in terms of comfort are the headband and the weight of the gaming headset. The headband distributes the weight on your head and you have to make sure it fits well. Some of the gaming headsets therefore have adjustable headbands. More expensive headsets are often lightweight so that you can wear them for a longer time without any problems.   

Step 5: Communication

In terms of communications possibilities, two things are important: noise cancelling and a mute function. The noise cancelling makes sure that any background noise will not reach your team. With the mute function you can turn off your microphone so that your team can not listen to you while you are talking to someone in your room for example.

These are our five steps for picking the right gaming headset. You will probably still come down to a selection from which you have to choose, but at least you will have some guidance now on what to look for!

Oracle licenses, understand jargon to avoid confusion

Comments Off on Oracle licenses, understand jargon to avoid confusion

The wide variety of licenses, the complex and confusing rules and conditions becomes clear to Oracle users very soon. For those who are unexperienced with Oracle, the different Oracle terms can be challenging to them. As with other software companies, Oracle’s world has its own language that differs from industry standard in a number of important respects. Very useful to know before reading an Oracle licensing guide. Understanding these terms is an important first step in gaining a better understanding of licensing knowledge and your partnership with Oracle. 

Term 1: ‘partitioning’’

This term is often used during Oracle related discussions. Partitioning van mean two very different things.

  • Partitioning is the name of a licensable option on the Oracle Database Enterprise Edition that help customers to break a large database in to smaller pieces. In this context, reference is made to a specific product.
  • Partitioning could also be used as a term of segmenting a physical server into multiple section. Each section will act as a separate system. Oracle has qualified a number of technologies as hard partitioning. In this category, Oracle allows to segment a server, and this allows to reduce licensing costs. Another category is soft partitioning, and this is forbidden to license only a part of the physical server. 

Term 2: ‘’capped’’ and ‘’uncapped’’

The terms capped and uncapped are sometimes used informally to refer to hard and soft partitioning. However, the confusion lurks at IBM LPAR technology. This is one of the methods that Oracle qualified as hard partitioning. When it comes to Oracle licenses, LPAR is a valid hard partitioning technology, regardless of whether the LPAR’s mode is capped or uncapped. So an uncapped LPAR is still hard partitioning.

Term 3: ‘’multiplexing’’

The term multiplexing is often used by Oracle. Especially within the Named User Plus Licensed metric definition, the term is not very standard. The result: customers are often confused as to what it really means.

Oracle uses multiplexing in the scenario where there is a technology layer between the database and the front end that masks some or all of the users entering data into the database. TP monitors or web servers are common examples that Oracle provides. In a multiplexing scenario, front-end users enter data that should not be ‘’seen’’ by the database. Oracle wants to make clear that all users must be licensed, regardless of which user accounts are logged in the database.

Term 4: ‘’Batching’’

The last term we know off that Oracle uses, is batching. It refers to the one-time transfer of large amounts of data from one computer to another. While the description of computer to computer leaves room for interpretation, Oracle considers a batch to be a transfer from one specific relational database to another.

Blockchain Application Ideas That Could Help Your Small Business

Comments Off on Blockchain Application Ideas That Could Help Your Small Business

Blockchain: you have certainly heard of it. For experts, blockchain has become something familiar. For novices, this remains a subject which may seem difficult to grasp. Simply put, blockchain is a decentralized technology that allows you to store and distribute information securely and inexpensively. Mostly known as a technology at the heart of Bitcoin, a virtual currency that has taken sophisticated merchants by storm, blockchain is a technology with endless possibilities. The main advantages of blockchain include transparency, security, elimination of intermediaries and saving time. Although still in its infancy, many startups have started to explore how this technology can change the way businesses operate. Here are blockchain application ideas that could help your small business.

Payment and money transfers


We start with the blockchain possibilities in the financial sector. The blockchain is a highly encrypted database, spread over thousands of servers, where each entry is verified and encrypted. Technology now has many more advancements that see it enter the payment scene and potentially make it a much more accepted payment technology.

Encryption ensures that data is secure but transparent. The point behind this is to use blockchain to manage payments locally and internationally, without an intermediary like a bank, thereby reducing transaction costs. Eliminating intermediary expenses also eliminates delays, which means that financial transactions can be executed directly between network participants.

Decentralized Cloud Storage

Cloud storage is necessary for all types of businesses to store data. And small business owners are increasingly abandoning traditional cloud storage solutions like Oracle Cloud, Google Cloud Platform and Amazon Web Services, due to their low transparency, high cost and limited security. Major hacks in the cloud have disrupted many reputable companies like Tesla. Thus, small business owners are skeptical of centralized cloud platforms. The good news is that blockchain-based distributed cloud storage solutions provide business owners with data transparency and security. Distributed cloud storage is also cheaper than centralized cloud storage solutions.

Supply chain management

Supply chain management is the wide range of activities needed to plan, control and execute the flow of a product – from the acquisition of raw materials, production, distribution to the end customer. In other words, supply chain management is the active management of supply chain activities to maximize customer value and achieve sustainable competitive advantages.

Supply chain management has become a necessity, especially when it comes to delivering goods at low cost. The problem with this system is that if a supply chain fails or is compromised, the final brand suffers. Fortunately, blockchain is exploring new ways to play. It can be applied to record keeping and product tracking. It is a better automated and less corruptible alternative than centralized databases.

Final Thoughts

It’s not an exaggeration to say that blockchain should change small businesses as we know them. Blockchain is a huge deal at the moment. This means that countless incompetent developers are launching apps to try to ride the wave. So you may want to proceed with caution.

On, our main goal is to inform people about cryptocurrency. You will find information about Exchanges, Coins and trading.

What is Crypto Swing Trading?

Comments Off on What is Crypto Swing Trading?

Swing trading is a fundamental type of short-term market speculation where positions are held for longer than a single day. 

The definition of swing trading for beginners is that users seek to capture gains by holding an instrument anywhere from overnight to several weeks. As training guides highlight, the objective is to capitalize on a greater price shift than is possible in an intraday time frame. But because you follow a larger price range and shift, you need calculated position sizing so you can decrease downside risk.

To do this, individuals call on technical analysis to identify instruments with short-term price momentum. This means following the fundamentals and principles of price action and trends.

Swing trading setups and methods are usually undertaken by individuals rather than big institutions. This is because large enterprises usually trade in sizes too great to enter and exit securities swiftly. However, as examples will show, individual traders can capitalize on short-term price fluctuations.

There are several advantages of swing trading:

  • Application: swing trade can be effective in a long list of markets and instruments. For example, you can speculate on the latest alternative currencies, such as bitcoin (BTC), ethereum (ETH) and litecoin (LTC). Alternatively, you can stick to the swing trade with standard options.
  • Tools: You can trade with candles and other techniques on any number of platforms, from Robinhood to MetaTrader. There is also the option of using automated bots and expert advisor (EA) software. If used correctly, they can allow you to perform many more swing operations than you could do manually.

Risks of Swing trading:

There are certain disadvantages of swing trading, including:

  • Market risk: You can certainly lose money. Although some have made it seem easy, any mistake will feel where it hurts most, your income. And unfortunately, as is the nature of market speculation, lessons are often only learned the hard way. In addition, operating with margin and using leverage could cause you to lose more than your initial investment.
  • Time: Trade by swing is not one of the types of trade in which you can enter your position and simply verify it a week later. It’s live commerce and the strategies that work require constant monitoring. This means that juggling the swing trade with a full-time job can be a challenge.
  • Taxes: Swing trading does not essentially immune you from taxes. In fact, In the US, for example, you can get caught up in the laws of merchant day patrons. Therefore, verify that you can meet any obligation in your financial system first.

This is the decade of smart technology. Smart Crypto Bot is a robust automated cryptocurrency trading program in the market. It’s a graphical representation of your trading style and parameters which makes it much easier to use.

Powerbanks bedrukken om cadeau te doen

Comments Off on Powerbanks bedrukken om cadeau te doen

Powerbanks bedrukken zodat deze weggegeven kunnen worden als relatiegeschenk is tegenwoordig lang geen gek idee. Een powerbank is een geschenk dat door veel mensen gewaardeerd zal worden omdat je er echt wat aan hebt.

Powerbanks bedrukken om je smartphone onderweg op te laden

Nagenoeg iedereen heeft tegenwoordig wel een smartphone of tablet en ook iedereen kent regelmatig hetzelfde probleem: je bent onderweg en hebt geen mogelijkheid om je telefoon die bijna of helemaal leeg is op te laden terwijl je deze wel gewoon graag wilt gebruiken. Een powerbank kan dan uitkomst bieden om het apparaat snel op te laden.

Reclame maken met de powerbank

Een powerbank is een nuttig apparaat om te geven en om te krijgen. Als je er als ondernemer voor kiest een powerbank weg te geven aan je klanten of leveranciers kun je deze ook laten bedrukken. Dit kan bijvoorbeeld met een logo, bedrijfsnaam of andere tekst zoals een slogan zijn. Als de gebruiker van de powerbank deze voor de dag haalt wordt hij of zij er meteen weer aan herinnerd van wie deze powerbank afkomstig is. Daarnaast worden powerbanks met name onderweg gebruikt en kunnen ook andere mensen jouw bedrijfsnaam of logo zien.

Diverse soorten powerbanks bedrukken

Een powerbank kun je online als relatiegeschenk bestellen bij Niet iedere powerbank laadt een telefoon of tablet met dezelfde snelheid op (mede afhankelijk van hoe snel het toestel zelf kan opladen) en dat komt tot uitdrukking in de prijs. Naast een losse powerbank kun je kiezen voor een compleet cadeaupakket waarbij de powerbank hoort.

Voor bedrijven en particulieren

Een powerbank is een leuk cadeau om mee te geven aan bezoekers op bijvoorbeeld een beurs of evenement. Met jouw bedrijfsnaam erop zullen mensen eerder aan jouw bedrijf denken als ze op zoek zijn naar een bepaald product. Het is niet alleen mogelijk om als bedrijf bedrukte producten te laten maken. Als je bijvoorbeeld een feest geeft en je de gasten een leuk aandenken naar huis wilt meegeven kun je ook kiezen voor een powerbank met een gepersonaliseerde opdruk. Bij ieder gebruik zal de ontvanger weer terugdenken aan jouw feest.
