But since this is our first year living in an RV, I did not want to post what we did and then it not work. The good thing about the Midwest is, if you do not like the weather, just wait a day or two, it will change. We will have 70 degrees one day and snow the next. Like last weekend, 50-60 degrees but now we are having lows hitting zero. #1… Skirting We built a skirting to go around the low part of our 5er. I was advised that if I can stop the wind blowing under our unit, it would make a difference in the way it feels inside and save fuel cost. I didn’t want anything sticking to our exterior so taping or Velcro was out. I didn’t want big sheets of foam leaning up against the outside and rubbing against the finish. I didn’t want anything real heavy to move when spring comes and we need to move the skirting to storage. Our first winter sure has seemed long but in reality, it hasn’t been bad. Then the weather man is saying we will be in the 50’s and should remain there. One thing I know for sure, this season will pass. “To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven:”. My wife and I have learned so much over the last 12 months, 4 months of preparing and 8 months of full-timing, so that is why I am.
IoT is expected to digitize our lives while making us more efficient and dependent on technology. Internet of Things is a seamless network of uniquely identifiable everyday devices and objects that are connected to each other and the Internet with the purpose of making the daily life smarter and efficient through exchange of data between these... Without violating an individual’s privacy, I believe IoT has tremendous potential in a fast-developing country like India. Seamless Internet connectivity through either Wi-Fi or high-speed cellular network is a prerequisite for this technology and India is getting there, albeit slowly. The government’s latest push towards ideas like Digital India and Smart Cities is targeted primarily towards making people’s lives hassle-free and efficient. IoT fits very well in such a scenario and could be a growth driver for the country. In a vision document released by the government last October, an objective has been set to create a $15 billion IoT industry in India by 2020. Investments have started flowing in already. With such major push, here are some applications of IoT that can be implemented in India –. – Security of homes in the absence of.
Samsung thinks so. Its second experimentally screened phone taps into its hardware R&D and production clout to offer something not many other companies can make, let alone bring to the public outside of a fuzzy proof of concept. And so, following the Galaxy Round, here's the Galaxy Edge. If you take the basic shape and concept, it's the spitting image of the curved-screen Youm prototype spied at CES a little less than two years ago. I've been testing it out in Japan, where it launched instead of the Note 4, although both the Note 4 and the Note Edge will eventually be available in the US. Fortunately, despite the unusual, (addictively stroke-able) curved screen, it still... But bragging rights aside, is there enough of an argument for a curved screen. Samsung Galaxy Note Edge review. The Galaxy Note Edge grabs your attention. The screen looks great, with the punchy contrast and sharpness that's been a Samsung flagship mainstay for years. ) This means a little chunk of extra screen makes the phone just less than 4mm wider, and around 2mm shorter, than the Note 4. The screen is marginally smaller than the Note 4, despite the.
