Welcome to TEI. A place where you foster good ideas and help them grow:
So you want to find a career in technology? It sounds a logical choice and with our world becoming increasingly digitalised and online there are more UK jobs than ever in that area of expertise.
However, the fact that there are more technology based jobs available does not mean that the competition is any less for this type of job – you need to be match fit, competent and qualified to be able to bag a decent job in this field.
It is possible to study at night classes or at your local college to get the knowledge that you need and it pays to specialise in a certain area that you know is in demand. Knowing how to use a computer is not enough, you have to be able to demonstrate qualifications in one area or another. (more...)

Whether it's laptops, notebooks, PDAs or other gadgets, as technology advances, there are always new things hitting the shelves for people to choose from. The latest technology can be very alluring. But the prices for some of these products can be quite intimidating. There are ways to shop smart and get better deals on everyday electronics. Here is a short guide to how you can get the best prices on latest consumer technology.
We live in a consumerist society and competition is what drives the market. There is always a better deal to be found than the regular market rate. Keeping this in mind, it seems like a good idea to compare prices at different vendors etc. There are price comparison sites for products and services; these can come in handy while searching for the best deal.
When it comes to investing a substantial amount of money, many people are even ready to travel or order electronics from other places. So you may have to check the Canadian Dollar rate today, or the airfare to Dubai, but the deal you get can make it well worth it. Even a small percentage cut in the market price can be very attractive on expensive products like cameras. (more...)
Solar power is an environmentally clean, safe and sustainable solution for our domestic heating needs, and it also saves us pots of money in the long term! Surprised? Don't be! Solar technology has now advanced enough for it to be accessible to domestic users. This clean and efficient technology is, without a doubt, the way of the future.
The sun, our very own shining beacon of hope for the future, has been around for billions of years. However, it is only recently that we have developed the technology of harnessing the power of the sun on a large scale. Needless to say, solar technology converts the energy from the sun into usable energy in the form of electricity.
Today, a growing number of people are seeing the sense of converting to solar technology for their domestic heating needs. Going solar especially makes sense in places where there is plenty of sun! I know someone who recently moved to Spain. They made sure they had installed PV cell panels on the roof of their new home before they even got their International removals Shipping services sorted.

In recent years, notably 2005 onwards there has been a boom in virtual gaming environments becoming available online through various programming languages. Where as some big games developers such as Blizzard (with World of Warcraft) have distributed hard copies of their gaming environment's that customers purchase in retail stores, install on their pc's and download 1000's of mb's of information on top, other's such as Flowplay's ourWorld and Minecraft by Markus Persson offer environments created from open source languages such as Adobe's Actionscript and Sun Microsystems Java.
Creating & customising digital worlds such as ourWorld is a long and complicated process requiring hundreds and thousands of lines of code but of course can be helped by the fact that ourWorld is created in an open source language. Flowplay have created anenvironment for teenagers which can be accessed through your browser with no special software installation needed. This has again demonstrated the capabilities of Adobe flash with regards to online web interactivity and the user experience.
Markus Persson did something similar when producing Minecraft by using open source blocks of codes pre written by a whole community which develops using Java. (more...)

The battle over high speed broadband contracts in Britain rages on. A most recent development is BTs plee to be freed from long-term price controls on broadband. Such controversy concerns the new super-quick fibre optic network, on which the proposed superfast broadband will run. Let us then have a look at the latest outrage and discern what can be done to prevent further dismay.
BT is even considering asks remote communities to take on board some of their own manual installation work, such as digging routes for the cables themselves and paying for and installing the fibre optic ducts themselves. This sounds like a pretty outrageous way to install cheap broadband infrastructure, and indeed it does reflect the dire straits of BT’s financial situation. (more...)
Being in compliance with the Electricity at Work Regulations in the UK is a must for every business in the United Kingdom including those in Hampshire. The best way for these businesses to comply with this regulation is through Portable Appliance Testing or PAT. The PAT process is a simple one with three main phases – observation, visual inspection and a hands-on inspection by a qualified company or individual.
Observation is the first and most important phase of the PAT process because it is from this phase that the other two phases are derived. Observation is done by any member of the business. It is the process of simply looking at any portable appliance that is being used in the business and if any electrical safety issues are visible or made known during this process, it should be reported to the superiors of the business so that a formal visual inspection can take place.
A formal inspection must be done of all portable appliances in the workplace. This inspection does not necessary have to be done by a PAT Testing company. It can be done by an individual who has some basic training in PAT. During this process, the individual looks for obvious defects in the appliances. Some of these defects include: cracked cables, frayed wires and broken plugs. (more...)
