E-mail, phone, Web browsing, text messaging and even a 35-key QWERTY keyboard are part of the Blackberry mystique. Intelligent light sensing technology automatically optimizes the screen lighting levels for indoor and outdoor viewing of the 320 × 240 pixel LCD color screen. In addition to the lighting technology, the unit has a built-in speakerphone for hands-free usage where an audio power amplifier provides mono and stereo listening. Like other high-functionality portable products, the Blackberry uses several dc-to-dc converters. Efficient design allows the removable/rechargeable Lithium cell to provide up to 16 days standby time and four hours talk time.

Like many other Hollywood movies, however, Spare Parts only tells part of the story. What the film shows -- and doesn’t show -- raises important issues affecting STEM education in the US.
Instead of sifting through huge amounts of technical data looking for answers to assembly problems, engineers can now benefit from 3M's new initiative -- 3M Assembly Solutions. The company has organized its wealth of adhesive and tape solutions into six typical application areas, making it easier to find the best products to solve their real-world assembly and bonding problems.
Load dump occurs when a discharged battery is disconnected while the alternator is generating current and other loads remain on the alternator circuit. If left alone, the electrical spikes and transients will be transmitted along the power line, leading to malfunctions in individual electronics/sensors or permanent damage to the vehicle’s electronic system. Bottom line: An uncontrolled load dump threatens the overall safety and reliability of the vehicle.
