Near Field Communication on Android* Tablets and Hand-held Devices - An Introduction

Background



Near Field Communication (NFC) is a set of communication standards which allow peer-to-peer data exchanges between two closely held end points. Normally the distance between the devices is required to be less than 4cm. NFC originated on RFID systems, and gradually developed into a standard communication protocol on smart phones and tablets. Intel® AtomTM based Android tablets and hand-held devices support NFC.

Solitude and Zombies: Waking up to a New Gaming Industry

 

A long time ago, a mentor encouraged me to wake up earlier each day and spend some quiet time thinking about what’s going on in my life. While my job responsibilities and family were growing, my attention span was shrinking. I was becoming someone that life just “happened to.” I didn’t like it and he was tired of hearing me complain about it. So now I slow down a little each morning  to thoughtfully consider my priorities and the bigger picture of life. It’s really helped me to prioritize my time (as well as remember all my kids’ names).
