Our smartphones are gaining more and more power, opening new doors to new app functionality. This is not limited to games or programs to make your life easier. HTC now is joining ranks with SETI@home and Folding@home to be able to harness that power. HTC Power To Give aims to combine the power of your android smartphones to create a network of vast computational power. To make this possible, HTC with the help of the creator of SETI@home, Dr. David Anderson, have created an app which makes it very easy to do your part. After the app is downloaded from the Google Play store, when your phone is connected to WiFi and charging, your phone will be added to a huge network of phones all aiming to solve today’s greatest problems. This is concept is little different to fitness tracking that you can do on smartwatches like Apple Smartwatch where you can track heart rate and other health related metric.

HTC claims if they got 1 million HTC One smartphones all working together, it could be as powerful as a one-Petaflop supercomputer.At the current time, only HTC One and Butterfly phones can be used; however, HTC plans to add more and more Android devices.

Almost every person in the world has a mobile device of some kind these days. A high volume of these devices are Apple products. These contain the well-known iPhone and the iPads, which is the mobile tablet. Mobile devices offer convenience, they enable to stay in contact with colleagues, customers, family and friends while on the move, whether it’s answering a call, receiving an email or emailing through an important document.

When something goes wrong with your mobile device, your world can come crashing down around you. The funny thing is that you won’t realise how reliant you are on your Apple product until it stops working and then you are stuck without your contact list, without emails, without internet and you have to revert to your PC computer to help you manage your messages and work.

When it comes to Apple repairs you can’t simple drop your device off at any store. You need to choose a reputable company that has years of knowledge and experience working specifically with Apple products. While you may assume that all mobile devices are created equal, they are different in the components they use, the systems that operate them and so much more. Finding a company that can fix your device and provide you with a good quality service is imperative to getting your device back up and running again without delay and reducing the risk of losing all your valuable data.

The first thing you are going to want to do is ensure the company you choose for Apple repairs has a good reputation in the mobile repairs industry.Here is best trusted apple repair singapore store for apple devices in singapore .

What will your phone’s processing power be used for? The power harnessed by these phones will be used to aid researchers in a variety of uses. One of the main focuses is researching a cure for cancer and other diseases; this is done mainly through protein folding. When a protein in your body does not fold correctly, there is a possibility to cause one of many diseases, including cancer. Protein folding can show scientists the correct sequences so they can find ways to prevent or treat diseases attributed to that protein. Doing something as easy as downloading an app could help save millions of lives.
