Let us consider about the '1 C '.





On Friday at the Day of Accounting '1 C ', as usual, also told reporters on the outcome of their work. As always, the mass of information which is not very easy osmyslist.

Yesterday was trying to summarize the main thing in book form, but somehow it is not very successful, somewhat confused by the ' testimony podsledstvennogogo '.


But there was one thought. Here's what: '1 C ' is largely exhausted its resource of rapid growth as a provider of. Distribution of software ( namely, that 1C began his business in the early 1990s), it seems (according to my rough calculations ), even in 2011 not reached the level of 2007. Dynamics of '1 C: Enterprise ' remains decent, but there is a feeling that starts out of steam....

But to go beyond the '1 C: Enterprise ... However, as to go beyond the CIS market. Given that the Russian market of software development is evolving faster pace in the export direction.

I recently learned with sincere surprise recently that ' Kaspersky Lab ' at Eton in 2009 and 2010 showed sales growth of 40% (I think 38 and 48) each year - in the midst of crisis! . USD. While remaining 100% of the company razrabotcheskoy. It turns out that the overall dynamics of '1 C ' clearly falls short of ' best examples '.

At the same time with '1 ' share of their own ' development ' is now only about 50 %. T. e. the company quickly moves away from vendorskoy business model Microsoft ( software sales ) and no longer goes to the service model of Oracle and more....

The growth of ' group 1C ' is largely due to nerazrabotcheskih directions (including promotional services), and this means that the firm is increasingly beyond the ' partnership ' field.

In this situation becomes clearer (though it was clear in the past ), why '1 C ' so quickly took this year for the cloud model, which implies in particular the transition to the direct delivery of software customers in addition to the channel partner....

These are preliminary thoughts out loud....

We must still finish the ' official ' story -report....

LIVING ENERGY: A SOURCE OF ELECTRICITY Beetle





Transformed insect cyborgs will be in a dangerous situation to send them to explore in advance, before you go there people.



First steps in this direction have already been made ​​- for example, recently a group of American Professor Khalil Najafi (Khalil Najafi) have found a way to turn an insect into a source of energy: bringing ... The proposed approach allows us to feed the tiny cameras, microphones, all sorts of tiny sensors, and communications system that can be installed on the beetle.






The idea is to utilize natural energy in the form of insect movements of his limbs, and allocated them to Heat. The kinetic energy can be converted into electricity by the piezoelectric element and the heat - with the help of thermoelectric. In addition to the hard beetle elytra can install the finest solar panels.






Well, if we add the ability to control its flight - which is possible not only in theory (...
