  1. Mouse cursor, the term refers to pointing devices, such as trackballs, touchpads and pointing sticks built into notebook computers. It is sometimes also referred to as the pointer and serves a purpose we all are aware of. And we are also aware that it is tilted to the left. But have you ever wondered why? What could be the possible reason for this angle of inclination? Some say that it emulates our natural way of writing, where we hold the pen at such an inclined angle. But if a person is left-handed and writing , the wrist covers the text you just completed and therefore drags through the fresh ink when you proceed in the opposite direction. This view, I believe won’t have many takers when it comes to computers as the ink used is digitized. Also, some say, it is so, because we Read from Left to Right. But this too does not seem entirely plausible. Why is the mouse cursor tilted?The more sensible or scientific argument is offered by computer software developer Bart Gijssens over on Stack Exchange. The expert familiar with the history of computer technology put forth the explanation citing a document more than 30 years old (from 1981). He confirmed that Douglas Engelbart, inventor of the mouse, first portrayed the arrow cursor vertically. It was initially an arrow pointing up. Palo Alto Research Center, shortened form – PARC the research and development unit of Xerox was the first to implement the graphical interface of the operating system in practice. It was the document of this unit that first described the cursor in 1981. It argued that it was practically impossible for the developer then, to design a vertical mouse arrow of small size, easily visible to users so much so much so that they decided not to increase the size of the pointer, but instead turn it slightly so the left side of it was verticaland the right one tilted under 45°. So, it was an attempt to reduce the amount of ‘pixelated’ edges on low resolution screens and not weight-imbalance that forced developers shift to the other design, leaning towards the left. In addition, the reason the arrow is tilted to the left can be attributed to the fact that the click position is easier to calculate, because the origin of the cursor’s bitmap is in the upper left. This saved the mouse tracking subroutine a calculation on every click (it’s not much, but it helped on older machines). From a convenience point, the slight bend feels a lot more natural as it reflects the posture of your hand using the mouse. The key feature from the tilted arrow is that the left side is a vertical line. Even the hand, at times used assubstitute for pointer, features a tilted line with the index finger. There are various other reasons cited at Stack Exchange for adopting such a design, another being Low level visual cognition.The design has not been updated even with higher resolution screens. The only development that occurred – Steve Jobs borrowed it for his software, followed by Bill Gates! Incidentally, just like the tradition of portraying the mouse cursor tilted by 45° is preserved, the arrangement of keys and characters on the QWERTY keyboard, a carry over from the days of mechanical typewriters too remains same.

  4. Notebook Hardware Control 2.4.3 Professional Edition Portable Managing the components of a portable system and optimizing their usage to obtain the best performance with minimal power consumption is not an easy task, unless a specialized software is available. One such utility is Notebook Hardware Control (NHC), a program dedicated to power management and hardware monitoring. The well organized interface provides information about system components as well as quick access to all the functions of the application. Notebook Hardware Control helps you to: control the hardware and system power managementcustomize the notebook (open source ACPI Control System)prolong the battery lifetimecool down the system and reduce power consumptionmonitor the hardware to avoid system failuremake your notebook quietThus, you can view details like the CPU clock and current load, the processor and hard drive temperatures, CPU voltage and speed, as well as the available physical and virtual memory. Notebook Hardware Control (NHC) is able to detect for how long the system has been running (the power-on time) and read battery stats. The software features an Advanced Configuration and Power Interface (ACPI) control system that can handle may power options, and set thresholds for critical CPU temperature that send a warning or shutdown the system, depending on the selected values. A neat thing about Notebook Hardware Control (NHC) is that it allows you to activate a set of tray icons for various parameters that you may want to monitor without having to bring up the program's interface every time. You can choose icons for processor clock, temperature, speed or load, as well as HDD temperature. Notebook Hardware Control (NHC) can also track the battery charge level and for certain laptops it provides a function called Notebook FAN Control which is useful for reducing the noise coming from the system cooler running at high speeds when it doesn't have to. To sum things up, it's safe to say that with the help of this application users can really benefit and adjust the power settings of their notebooks in such a manner that the system components are spared of unnecessary wear and tear. Here are some key features of "Notebook Hardware Control": prolong the battery lifetime and cool down the system with CPU Voltage Control and ATI Clock Control.full processor speed control with custom dynamic switching and CPU Speed Control (CPU policy)monitor the battery charge level and system temperature.control and monitor the Hard Drive with S.M.A.R.T management, acoustic & advanced power management and Hard Drive temperature monitoring.reduce noise with Notebook FAN ControlWebsite: http://www.pbus-167.com/ OS: Windows XP / Vista / 7 (Only x32!)
