As you might know website loading time is a massive factor in usability, it affects the site’s google rankings, so it’s a good idea to optimize the sleep of your pages, a slight change even a millisecond matters.
If you want to compare one website who you trying to competite with, there’s a way to check this, with a tool like Dueload, you can check the speed of two ages at the same time, right in your browser.
You can check this elements load first and how different parts of the website load, the quicker the better it is.
The tool is really basic however it does leave a lot of room for improvement that can be done by a community, you can get the free source code on GitHub, download a copy and even host it yourself, so if you have good understanding of programming you can track load times, large HTTP assets, and even adding a 3rd website pane into the mix.
The Future is becoming something some people are looking forward too and others feel like they are under educated to handle the shortage of jobs due to new developments in robotics, that are slowly taken over our jobs.
Technology seems to be getting better and better every year and the costs of having a robot working for you is a lot more efficient and cost friendly, companies such as
Adidas who is now moving on to making shoes in a robotic factory known as the ‘speed factory’
Amazon, now has 30,000 fulfillment robots working in its warehouses worldwide.
UBER, moving to self driving cars.
You can check now to see what are the chances of your job, being taken by a robot in the future.
“According to their estimates, about 47 percent of total US employment is at risk” – WILL ROBOTS TAKE MY JOB?
Here are some examples we tested out:

The Best Way To Predict The Future Is To Create It
– Peter Drucker
Hyperloop is fairly new technology that is designed to change the way we travel, this could mean cutting costs and time by almost 80%.
This means you can go from United Kingdom to Italy within an hour, its faster and cheaper than a plane, its been described as broadband for transportation, now that’s a leap forward.
Currently, Dubai has set a deal with Hyperloop One to create a Hyperloop between Dubai and Abu Dhabi, the cities are 90 miles apart from each other, this journey will take 12 minutes, speeds of 500mph.
Your brain print as a password
This might sound insane but its actually scientifically proven,Binghamton University in New York, looked at the volunteers brain signals and how they changed, which resulted in each person reacted differently enough for the system to predict who was actually looking at the list, the success rate is 94 %, however in the future with more tests, this could improve.
Using your brainwaves as a password is actually really simple to do and can in-fact be as quick as you entering your password yourself, it uses your brainwaves to analyse how you look at a personal picture, for example, a picture of your family, it sees the brainwaves pattern and once you see the picture again, your brain acknowledges this pattern and lets you access your device, you can even reset the password by showing another picture, let say for your pets, the technology analyses your brain waves and then next time you log in to the device, it lets you access it.
Smart Farms are the future as the growth of the population seems to be getting bigger and bigger, by 2050 we are expected to have additional two billion people, and we are meant to be peaking as much as 30 million population near the future, around 80% of thoughts people will be living within cities.
The food will have to get smart, saving space and money, companies are already building structures within cities that produce vegetables and fish without using soil but nutrients in liquid, the farms stack up, like shelf’s with solar power producing the energy it needs to sustain the vegetables and fish, it can produce over half a tone of vegetables and fish per month, that over 8 stones of food year.
Internet for everyone
This might seem strange but not everyone has access to the internet, but that’s about to change companies like PayPal founder Elon Musk & Virgin Founder Richard Branson, want to send small satellites to low orbit, so they can send out a strong wireless signal to everyone around the world, countries.
This means everyone will soon have access to this amazing service, as the internet becomes a part of our daily lives.
Resurrection of extinct animals
Animals that are extinct have now got a chance to coming back to life, but its not how you manage it would be, genetic engineering the current animals within the same group type to have traits of an extinct animal, such as an elephant to have mammoth traits like look Tusk and birds with different types of feather colour and beak size.
Flying cars using both method of travel by land and air, you can drive the flying cars on the road, it will park, and do all the car stuff however it can also take off at any airport, and land at any open area or paved surface, this used to be the thing of the future, where sci-fi movies would show flying vehicle, its slowly becoming a reality, as companies have already developed a vehicle like this.
Will you be buying a self-driving car or a flying car, or even better a self-driving flying car, the future really looks like an 80’s sci-fi movie.
3D Printing to next level
3D printing has already become cheap for everyone to buy, but soon you will literally be able to 3D print just about anything that includes human body parts, our food and everything you can imagine, the technology is moving so fast that in few years, people will have a 3D printed human body part in them, this technology is also open source so just about anyone can access the files and build something incredible.
Living on another planet
This might be strange and something that some of us never imagined will happen in our lifetime, but living on another planet can soon be a thing of the future.
It might not start on a large scale but it’s very possible having human living on another planet, technology is given us the ability to move on and conquer other planets.
As the earth gets more populated will look forward to moving on to other planets and mars will only be a start.
Missions to take humans to Mars:
Mars One: wants to have it’s first human crew setting off for Mars in 2031 and doesn’t expect them to return, it’s a one-way mission for the first astronauts.
NASA hopes to have humans in orbit around the Red Planet by the early 2030’s.
Space X wants to get a million-strong Mars colony on the surface of the Red Planet with the next century. The craft they are making hopes to be ready by 2024.
A number of breakthroughs have been made in Brain Implants to help restore freedom of movement that the spinal cord injuries take away.
A test took place on a monkey, who’s right leg was paralyzed and they decided to make install this brain implant and when the monkey decided to move, the brain implant sent electrical stimulation to its spine and then the legs began to extend and flex, and boom.
The monkey can move and walk again, this is a massive leap in the future, showing that its only time before we are able to fix every issue in the world.
Test was made by The French neuroscientist
Amazon have the largest outdoor test center in United Kingdom however they didn’t say what part of UK ,the tests are at only that “Cambridge is one of a number of testing sites in the country”Continue reading

A DDoS attack works by overloading the target server with requests to connected to it, this is one of the most common types of cyberattacks, most DDoS attacks focus on one site. Overloading a server causes it to start overheating and shutting down, DDoS denies the services to others.
a thousand computers all using the same DDoS tools to generate countless fake accounts, all flooding the same website or server with thousands of gigabytes of data per second.
What devices can be used to attack a server?
- Pretty much anything with an ip address.
How does DDoS attacks impacket you?
DDoS attacks can be costly and wide-ranging, such as
- Recovery costs; detection and emergency mitigation
- Indirect costs; lost productivity and brand reputation
- Opportunity costs; customer churn and lost business opportunities
Millions of pounds are being spent every year by companies to help defend against these kind of attacks but its hard to predict how to stop them.
