Today in London as part of ARM's TechDay 2015 event we had the pleasure to get a better insight into ARM's new Cortex-A72 CPU. ARM had announced the Cortex-A72 in the beginning of February — leaving a lot of questions to be asked…
Green energy technology has always existed ever since civilization began. For instance, we have been utilizing water, wind, and the sun, among others for centuries now. But of course, how we use these technologies now is completely different than what it was before. However, green technology has come again to the forefront because of the changes that our home, the Earth, has been experiencing thanks to our actions. There are different technologies that were developed that made “green” technologies feasible ones. What exactly are they? We are going to discuss all about green energy technology in this article.
When you think about green energy, the first thing that comes to mind is the sun. The center of the solar system, this star is an undisputed powerhouse. Capable of generating near-infinite amounts of energy, it is an inexhaustible energy source in the truest sense. Before, it is just being used for functions such as drying and heating, but now it is now used to harness electricity. Because of the aforementioned strength of the sun, it is undisputedly the most intriguing green energy technology of all. Just imagine if mankind can tap even a fraction of its immense strength. Still, people were able to create systems that were able to harness this powerful energy source. And these systems were able to power up a lot of communities as well as decrease our dependence on conventional (and temporary at best) energy sources. The better news is that this technology is constantly improving. From solar panels to inverters, individual parts of the solar energy system are being improved, making it a better energy source for the future.
And then there is wind energy. Wind is generated in just about every part of the world, and while it is not as powerful as sunlight, it is still a formidable force. Just watch how a storm or a tornado ravages, and you’ll know what we are talking about. However, to harness wind as a green energy technology, it doesn’t have to be a force that is as violent as that. In fact, wind speed of 15 kilometers per hour (speeds that approximate your typical breeze) is just enough to generate electricity to power your everyday tasks.
One of the things that people hold against these alternative energy sources is that they are unreliable and difficult to install. But that can’t be any more farther from the truth. With the constant improvement of green energy technology, they have grown more and more efficient with each passing year. And equipping them is not really all that hard. Most of the kits that allow you to harness green energy are easy to install and are ready to operate in less than a day of work. And if do it yourself isn’t exactly your cup of tea, some of these sellers offer installing services.
Green energy technology is undoubtedly the future of energy in our planet. Clean and renewable, they can provide the fuel to power our society while being kind to the environment at the same time.

Graphics and photo imaging software has a buyer power score of 4.7 out of 5, reflecting very positive purchasing conditions for buyers. In particular, buyers benefit from the availability of free open-source software alternatives, low switching costs and high profitability within the market. According to IBISWorld research analyst Daniel Krohn, “Free open-source software alternatives have applied strong external pressure on vendors selling graphics and photo imaging software, compelling them to lower their prices over the past three years.” Meanwhile, buyers can switch suppliers very easily thanks to low switching costs. In turn, suppliers must actively pursue brand loyalty, granting buyers more leverage when renegotiating contractual terms. Also, high profit margins within the market give suppliers a substantial amount of price flexibility, providing buyers additional opportunities to negotiate price discounts.
Nonetheless, a variety of factors have mildly hampered buyer power. Rising corporate profit, consumer spending and private investment in computers, software and advertising have generated strong demand for graphics and photo imaging solutions, says Krohn, which allows suppliers to push prices upward. Furthermore, top-tier suppliers have strong brand-name appeal, which they can use to attract and retain customers, also reducing their need to resort to price competition. Together, these factors have offset rising competition in the market. Current major vendors include Adobe Systems, Platinum Equity and Autodesk.
Software publishers are transitioning toward a subscription pricing model that may benefit some buyers, while increasing the total cost of ownership for others. Purchases of perpetual licenses have high upfront costs and are best for users that do not plan on upgrading their software often. The subscription model benefits users that do upgrade with each new software release, use multiple related products or prefer lower upfront costs. Because subscription pricing requires continuous payments, the long-term total cost of ownership can be higher. However, the shift toward subscription pricing is expected to reduce costs in the short term because of its lower initial cost.
