Future Phone

Posted by Nazita Saye

Nazita Saye You all know how gadget-mad I am, right? Well guess what’s got my senses buzzing today? A mobile phone that you can build yourself from various components … something akin to a Lego phone and it’s called the Phoneblok. A Dutch designer, Dave Hakkens, came up with the idea after he wanted to replace a single broken component in his mobile phone. When he was told that he couldn’t just replace the broken … Read More

And then the announcer said...

Posted by Nazita Saye

Nazita Saye I don’t know about you but last Saturday night I decided to stay in – I was only halfway done with my weekend but I was exhausted. The day before I had taken a vacation day and driven down to Weymouth to watch Olympic sailing and got up super early to drive back to London to do an 8-mile hike in Surrey. So the thought of going anywhere or doing anything too taxing was out of the question (especially … Read More

Nazita Saye Let’s see a show of hands. How many of you know what I’m talking about? Yes, this was the call to action for Speedy Gonzales, the fastest cartoon mouse (and before the lawyers get involved, Speedy Gonzales and Looney Tunes are trademarks and or trade names of Warner Brothers. All rights reserved). A direct translation of it means: Up! Up! Go on! Go on! And he’d usually yell it out before speeding off … Read More

Not Another Volcano Story...

Posted by Nazita Saye

Nazita Saye After a week of uncertainty, the skies above Europe have finally opened (albeit slowly) to air traffic. Thanks to this pesky plume of volcano ash from Iceland, all of Europe has come to a complete standstill. At a micro level, I have been enjoying the quiet — no jet engines screeching overhead every few minutes.  At a macro level, this couldn’t have happened at a worst time for a recovering world economy.  … Read More

Cooking with CFD

Posted by Nazita Saye

Nazita Saye I’m the first to admit that I’m no Julia Child – but from time to time I get the baking bug … especially around the holidays. I love the smell of holiday baking… cinnamon and cloves and mix them in with the smell of a live Christmas tree … divine.  Unfortunately holiday baking is a bit of a hassle because I have to keep a keen watch over the goodies in the oven and turn them around to make sure they … Read More

It's a Struggle

Posted by Nazita Saye

Nazita Saye I work in an open office environment. There are about 20 of us in a big room and we have a problem. No … it is not noise. It is an airflow problem and the struggle I refer to is that of obtaining the perfect temperature for comfort. The guy who sits right next to the temperature controls likes heat. I affectionately call him a lizard because the hotter the room, the happier he sits … just like a lizard … Read More

Brighter Shade of Green

Posted by Nazita Saye

Nazita Saye When talking about increasing energy efficiency in a data center, a lot of people stop listening because the issue of sacrificing uptime always rears up its head . Uptime should not even be a topic of discussion. It should be a given. Even in this day and age, many facilities just leave the thermostat at a low level because it’s a safe bet. But it’s not necessarily the right thing to do for the environment. … Read More
