Technology is the application of scientific knowledge for practical purposes, especially in industry, business and finance. Other definitions include: scientific knowledge applied to the development of machinery and equipment. Knowledge used with engineering or applied sciences.

There are many branches of technology, here are a few that we have written about :-

Electronic Components
like resistors, capacitors, inductors (coils, choke), diodes, transistors, ICs (Integrated Circuits), valves (Tubes) right up to computer memory chips.

Silent Computers
Computers should be seen and not heard... unless they are playing my favourite video.

This is one person's story on how they finally created workstations and servers that make absolutely no noise. No fans, no spinning disk-drives and no noisy PSU, just totally silent computing power.

Search Engine Optimization
(SEO) is the process of building websites that give Google (and other search engines) all the information they need to fully index them, or at least do nothing to repel them. This process involves the careful writing of content, skillful use of HTML meta-tags like TITLE, DESCRIPTION, the ALT tag in images and other media.

This often gets confused with Search Engine Marketing (SEM) which is the process of encouraging traffic to said website with carefully placed and relevant links from around the web.
