Driver Free Peripheral and Internal Hardware

The utopia in computers can happen only if we free ourselves from "Drivers". I mean Software Drivers. It has to interface by a serial protocol close to the TCP/IP.

It needs to only identify itself to the computer as what type of data it can send or receive. Even that has to be from a tiny server on the device, which can be mapped by a address and accessed by any Browser on any OS. The Browser can have the configuration GUI. This is similar to some Router Configuration.

Driver Free Peripheral and Internal Hardware

Driver free, connect a new peripheral on the USB/Firewire or LAN or Wi-Fi, Now In browser you have a TCP/IP or Ethernet Device Explorer. Browse to the device, it can have a IP Addr. like 11.724.55.66.77.11 . The firewall blocks all communication of this device to the outer world. Now setup the device on the browser, now any software on the PC can communicate with that peripheral to do the job.

Biotech Nanotech and 12G

Convergence Of Biotechnology, Nanotechnology and 12-G Mobile Cellphoney. (this is a work of pure tech fiction by delabs written around the year 2000)

This post was first put in a blog powered by pMachine in 2001 or earlier, may have given the inspiration for the Android Brand.

This is a revolution of sorts. The final triumph of man over nature. The solution to the globalization standoff.

Android Brand.

Here I describe a small DIY (Do It Yourself) CBNM (Convergence Of Biotechnology, Nanotechnology and 12-G Mobile Cellphony.).

First unfold the third dual helix protein of a human DNA. This is fairly straight forward. These days they do it with their eyes closed.

Then procure from a leading nonotech vendor a 12-G Mobile Multimedia Enhanced Module IP (Intellectual Property).

Now embed the 12-G IP on the 48654 Rung of the Left Spiral Ladder of DNA and begin the hyper cloning process.

Then subject the cloned mass to accelerated aging in an activated rhodium incubator for a few pico seconds to trigger a super-mutation.

Now the baby that has been produced is the CBNM Super-Cell-Android. This child is born connected and online with a 1Gbps XeePee Network.

The mobilephone and multimedia pda are embedded in this child. He can chat, talk, download music and movies without moving a finger or blinking an eye.

The only problem is even as a little infant, he will start getting huge communication bills and if not paid in time the global service provider can terminate him.

delabs Stories written around 2000 also known as Y2K Fables

Gesture Computing - Enhanced Usability

When a Man is Hospitalized or Bedridden for a Long time. He still will need to check his mail or browse office reports or communicate to keep the show going.

A Laptop/Netbook Peripheral for such a need may help many people. While he is sick and recovering, he can only watch the ceiling. So a Projector attachment that can create a large Virtual Monitor on the Wall or ceiling will be a Boon for him. The inputs from him can be taken by part voice and part finger or toe twitching/movement.

Gesture Computing - Enhanced Usability

The most difficult part is the software GUI Accessibility Overlay. This Application has to ride above the OS Linux/Mac/Win as the case may be. It has to be built on Open Source only. We do not want to again move up the Health-Care Costs for the Common man.

Sensors, Actuators, Analytical & Environmental

The App must be very intelligent and wizard like, could be a webapp with a real human remote assistance at a extra service cost. It should operate on a Yes/No type of  Buttons to navigate. This will strain the patient the minimum; mentally and physically. This Exercise must help him recover faster, it should not become another pain in the neck.

The Fingers in two Hands twitch and the Computer watches his eyes and moves the cursor on the large screen sympathetically to the eye movement while listening to what he is saying.

The SmartRadio - eNewspaper Delivery

A Jpeg browser device like Digital Photo Album. It has a LCD Screen and a FM Radio interface. It costs less that $100 or comes free with 5 yrs subscription to a paper. - The SmartRadio

In the early morning it downloads the media on a built-in locked FM receive only radio.The FM newspaper station just transmits a few minutes of encrypted digital data. This is stored and static jpeg pages generated, which can be easily viewed and read using scroll and zoom using a convenient handheld device.

XML-HTML FM Radio - FM Radio enhancements

FM radios consume less power and are affordable, now we should add a small LCD display like you have in cellphones. Xml should be frequency modulated and transmitted by fm stations in adjoining bands.

Electronic Engineering Magazines

Xml is demodulated by fm radio and displayed in the lcd display on radio. This way news can be transmitted to many people without internet or tcp/ip. This is just one way broadcast of xml or html information, it need very less freq. Even html, jpeg, png and flash can be broadcast by fm radio. Product advertisements can also be sent in this format. Just tune into your xml fm radio station with your color lcd portable radio and presto news, ads, pictures, semi static but can reach millions. The radio tuner can tab over different stations.

Cost Effective eNewspaper Delivery Jpeg Radio

If it works and people start using it, it could be a standardized paper reader which can manage multiple subscriptions. The subscription can be bought in the form of a chip card or monthly billing. Then it can move to color and slowly to WiMax with Rich Media and Accessibility like Read aloud Text, Translate and Search. This depends on how far the media can go in modernizing and how safe the system is. Too bad that looks like a Tablet Computer again.

Everything is converging to Wireless Internet and Cloud Computing. The Tech Prophets had foreseen this phenomena prematurely.Then there was a oracle from the sky .....

There is enough bandwidth on the sides to accommodate a Low Resolution Jpeg or GIF Animation. Seeing this on a Color LCD Radio will make it Smart.

Now we have SMS Song Requests. The names of the Enthusiasts can come on the LCD screen by xml. Some Text can be easily pumped on FM Frequencies as a thin xml file. Even the details of the Radio Show.

SmartRadio may be One way communication. But we can add static pictures and text !

We could also make a Hybrid Device that combines the Mobile Data or Wi-Fi.

Secure Authenticated RSS-XML Feeds and Feedreaders

Suppose you want to have a simple means of communication with a known individual online without the need to a routine task to check or sort mail, there is, we know a solution. which is instant text messaging. Spam in this is very rare.

Secure Authenticated News is hard to find

 Secure Authenticated News is hard to find

Now an alert comes by email, about some secure site, you have to first find if it is real or it is a phishing-spoof. You first go in your browser to your secure-site and verify. So communication of such kind has to be a combination of Instant-messaging and email. If the secure site sends a IM + eMail. Then you know it is real. As you have only known contacts on your IM.

Now one step further, if the secure site in which you have your account has a secure encrypted rss-xml feed of your account which can only be read with an user-id and password.

Now You have a feedreader for secure sites with provision for authentication. You place your accounts feed and setup the login. Now once a day or once a week it reads the encrypted private feed and you are updated about the status of your secure account. The Client feedreader also can be given access by secure site, which will note the programs serial number and vendor number and the NIC Number.

So What is the Cache

When pages from the web are downloaded to your computer. A page means a html page, like "mypage.html", with a lot of bells, whistles and flashers. These are javascript, flash and images like png-jpg-gif and even mp3-mpeg.

Some pages have scripts that make the pages smart, these are pages that can think and react, they are Live Pages. This makes your page work with a array of computers from a service provider and behave like a software application.


This page and its accessories when downloaded to your computer are stored as files, in an allocated area on your computer. You can view them when you go offline and delete them from your browser history. This is the local computer cache.

In order to speed up the internet such cache of pages may be made at cyber cafes, Internet service providers and other servers in the path, or even at the host. It may be more important for mp3 and mpeg than for simple pages, to make web run smooth. These caches are also flushed periodically.

I feel as web grows, there may be a cache on every pole, at every street corner. Then you can use your computer to watch HDTV.

Sometimes due to stubborn cache in the browser, isp server or host, the files you uploaded, may not show up in the browser. So this is a trick you can use, when you just cant wait.

Delete the file at host, clean and reload your browser a few times till that element does not show on the page, upload the new replacement image or script. Now view page in browser after clearing history. Reload if required. You will see the new updated element.

If it is an xml, js or any other file you have to submit to a webapp for testing, but it does not respond due to cache. Rename and submit file, each time.

Use .... FileZilla A fast and reliable FTP client and server with lots of useful features and an intuitive interface.

delabs Notes 2006

Wireless Handheld Multimedia Computers

The Average home user or a majority of mankind have trouble even when operating a TV remote control. Things are not as simple as a Water Tap or a Toggle Switch. An Easy to use Handheld is more important than any technology or features that may be available for that. Ergonomics, Utility or Application, Quality and Cost are the basic requirements of the consumer.

Wireless Handheld Multimedia Computers

A Handheld gadget for the masses, needs to be a Entertainer and Communicator. It has to be wireless and should at least get into a Coat Inner pocket or Small Bag. It is a Duarble Consumer Electronics Product, comparable to the first Popular Tape Recorders from Philips or Grundig.

Wireless Gigabit Alliance - WiGig 60 GHz

Wifi and WiMax are the things that are being talked-blogged about and being tried. I just got some idea about these technologies and have my feedback or understanding.

If Somebody asked me to set up a low cost wifi connectivity in a small housing complex, I would just strap a wireless router on the pole on every street corner, the poles or junctions being the ones used for existing cable broadband. Then depending on subscriptions and demand, improve the capacity of the network within the budget of the colony.

The handheld can have simultaneous connection to two or three routers and as the person moves, drop a weak path and take up a new router which is strong. This is just my hunch.

The Handheld could be used for three types of wireless connections.

Full Multimedia Duplex - Like Video Telephone, WebApps - 100 units money charge per hour.

Semi Multimedia Duplex - Like Interactive Quiz, Games - Up is Text, Down is Video - 50 Units /hr.


Multimedia Broadcast - Digital Radio Podcast, TV Show Podcast, Movie Podcast - 15 Units/hr.


The TV and Radio Shows on subscribed podcasts can be downloaded and stored when it is transmitted live; but seen any time, any number of times, but transmitted only once. This is a wireless Transmission with an advance program xml feed info. It is just like Regular TV. This is to avoid bandwidth wastage on multiple downloads of same show by the people in one block. Even software updates and games can be brodcast and stored in background.

The usage of Internet and phone remains duplex and will take more resources. The handheld usage for entertainment may be very high. Duplex for that will cause excess costly load. Normal usage of Internet for browsing, mail and webapps may become difficult as more entertainment load builds. Entertainment on Handheld is best as a one time brodcast with a advance feed.

Drawing Tools for Electronic Schematics in Android

Conclusion - Wireless Handhelds connectivity must have separate interfaces for Web and Media. The Web is the same as Lan Wifi but Movies and Games can be connected by a Broadcast Show. And seen on Handheld by wireless Programmable Live Reception with storage.
