New Pricing Technology Makes Car Insurance Cheaper

New Pricing Technology Makes Car Insurance Cheaper

Over the years, the technology used to calculate car insurance premiums has changed dramatically. Actuaries used to figure out premium levels by hand using books of statistical data. Later, adding machines and early computers ground through the numbers. More recently, online forms were invented which allowed you to get a quote online.

After all that time grinding things out, what most insurers and consumers wanted was speed. As a result, the current model for most traditional or mainline insurance companies in Australia consists of just a few questions. With these tiny points of data, a quote is generated based on aggregated consumer averages.

The result is a fast quote, but not a very accurate one. Most people dont notice that they are being treated as averages. They simply pay the quoted amount and pay rate increases even if they are accident free. However, you dont have to settle for this outdated and inaccurate system any more.

While most insurers havent gotten there yet, there are a few car insurance companies that have been pioneering a new way of calculating premiums. This new pricing methodology is based around creating highly detailed risk profiles of potential customers. This allows a calculation of premium that can truly separate high-risk from low risk customers.

There are several winning elements to this methodology. However, for consumers like you, the main benefit is often lower prices. If you are a good driver with a limited number of claims, you can really make home some substantial savings by switching to a company using this in-depth modelling framework to calculate rates for insurance cover.

It can feel a bit strange, especially after years of living with the old speed-is-everything system. Thats not to imply that this method isnt fast, mind you. It simply asks several additional questions about parking locations, length of commute to work, and so on.

As one of the early adopters, you stand to benefit the most. While your friends potter along with outdated insurance policies with off-the-rack premiums, you can have a custom tailored premium that only charges for the real risk you face as a driver and customer. Youll be able to quit subsidizing the behaviours of others through blanket premiums, and get to enjoy the fruits of your own careful behaviour on the road.

This is especially true if you really arent an “average” driver. If you only drive a few days a week, work from home and dont use your car regularly, or are retired and dont drive long distances, you have a dramatically different risk profile than most Australians. Yet you have been paying “average” rates for years, since the old method never inquired about your true habits.

Even if youre not a fan of the new and different, this is a new technology youll want to embrace. The new technology behind this quoting system isnt all flash and sparkle. It truly represents a way to make insurance premiums cheaper for you through more accurate pricing of your insurance cover based on your real risk profile.

Make OS X Faster & Efficient

Make OS X Faster & Efficient

Because created and designed by one company, hardware and software from Apple can work optimally and efficiently. One of the advantages are when we install OS X, we do not need to fuss looking for drivers for the Mac that we use.

Moreover, because the security system, not many viruses that successfully made to screw up OS X, though there is still malware that managed to infiltrate. It was not to screw up OS X, but rather aims to steal sensitive data or personal in the Mac.

While it is arguably efficient, we can still fiddling with that OS X running faster again.
Here are some things we can do:

Hardware side

T02-436-111-make. Upgrading memory up stuck. Output for Macbook Pro 2012 to the above, this is not possible, because the memory is soldered directly to the motherboard. Even so great a minimum of memory available is quite capable, which is 4 GB. 4 GB of memory is the minimum for all major applications in both heavy-and could not walk comfortably. The bigger the memory, the better.

2. Upgrade the hard drive. Mac can walk comfortably if enough free space available in the T02-436-make-12partisi existing OS X. In order to walk comfortably, should be available at least 30 GB of free space. If you use a heavy application sorts PhotoShop, AutoCAD, or the other, there are at least 80-120 GB of free space on my hard drive. So get used to the data stored on the internal hard drive external hard drives that can have empty space relief. If forced, upgraded hard drive to a larger capacity. If you can, use a hard drive upgrade to SSD. It is still expensive, but the performance is much more hurried.


Software side

T02-436-21a1-making. Repair Disk Permissions. Actually this procedure is to check whether the file status in accordance with the original. File status could change as the applications that use them have problems. As a result, the Mac can run slow or weird, such as the application of a sudden go out alone, running slower, slower booting, and other sebagainya.Caranya quite easily, run Disk Utility> click on the existing partition OS X it> click repair permission and wait until the process is complete. If you’ve done repair permissions, more afdol followed by a second step.

T02-436 T02-make-436-21b-21c-making


2. Reset NVRAM. Non-Volatile RAM or NV-RAM is an OS X application and keep most of the settings that we often use. The goal is that we run the application on the condition that we use. But at a certain point, the NV-RAM will be full and will actually make the Mac went awry. How to reset the NV-RAM is quite straightforward, we turn on the computer and then we immediately pressing Cmd + alt + P + R and press and hold until dueng Mac emits three times.

3. Provide enough free space on the disk / partition OS X is. The trick is to move the data to another hard drive and remove any unwanted applications. With so many free apps available on the AppStore, maybe some of us a lot of the “greedy” to install the free application. In the end, many of these applications are not suitable for us and ultimately make the hard drive so full. Most applications are indeed living discard the application file to the trash. But it does not hurt to uninstall the application using software like CleanApp, AppZapper, CleanMyMac, etc..

T02-436-244-make. Clean desktop. Try not store any files on your desktop as this will slow down the boot. Each boot, OS X will prepare a file on the desktop that can be accessed at any time. If only one or two files it may seem, but we would feel if a desktop full of files.


T02-436-255-make. Delete unneeded languages. Mac provides multiple language that is easy to use by people from various countries. Surely we do not need all of the existing language. If only need English only, we better just delete the language that we do not need, especially when they take a big enough hard drive space. The easiest way is to use Monolingual which can be downloaded from The trick is easy, just check the language that you want to delete and click remove.

T02-436-26a6-making. Turn off animation. When running the application, mac will display an animation that gives the impression that the application is open from the icon that we double-click the. When the mouse over the application icon in the dock line, the application automatically enlarges. Such animations can we Disable that Mac go faster. Run the System Preferences> Dock> uncheck the choice of animate opening applications. Also do not use the option of changing the existing wallpaper in System Preferences> Desktop & Screen Saver.




7. Set the Startup Item. Some immediate applications come running when OS X booting. Check if there are applications that do not really matter that went along with running. I run the System Preferences> Users & Groups> and check the applications that do not want to run at startup.


Mac Monitor Every Time

After performing such optimization step above, of course, we should be able to monitor the Mac that is always in top condition. Some steps we can do include:



1. Activity Monitor running. This application provides a complete and detailed information firsthand what is happening on the Mac. So when Mac was running slow and do not know why, we can run the Activity Monitor and find out.

a. Button to shut down the application. Once we click on the application process takes a wild and uncontrolled, click the button to turn it off.

b. Percentage of CPU used by an application. Applications that run normally just use cpu power is not more than 10%. More than that, the application will be considered illegal and should be turned off. Applications typically do not have errors and uncontrolled eating up 90% cpu power. No wonder Mac can be slow.

c. This is the part where we can see the other processes of the cpu, such as memory, disk activity, disk in use, and network. Some of them are equipped with a chart showing the current work process.



2. iStat Menus. This application can display the information that we need in the menu bar, so we only glance we can determine the condition of the current cpu. This application can be purchased at costs 25 dollars.


T02-436-333-make. Daisy Disk. Very useful for hard drive clean up when we needed space. Daisy Disk folder instantly displays the big size, so we know which folder has a large file. Can be purchased in the App Store for USD. 95 thousand.


T02-436-344-make. Memory Clean. As we know, that we run most of the applications will be put into memory. The problem is, when we close the application, most will still be stored in memory. Over time the memory will be full and the computer was so slow. Used to be the only way to clear this memory just by turning off the computer or restart. Now we can use the Memory Clean with one click direct memory clean. Purge memory several times in order to get maximum results. Download it for free in the App Store.

Podcasting Technology What Is It

Podcasting Technology What Is It

Podcasting: Everyone is talking about it. But what exactly is it, and how does it work? Simply defined, podcasting is the dissemination of syndicated files, either audio or video in content, over the Web for use on handheld audio/video equipment and computers. The term itself is a combination of two words, “iPod” and “broadcasting.” The word refers to both the file that’s downloaded and the technology to transfer it. Keep in mind that an iPod is not necessary for accessing podcasts. A podcast is also known as an audio subscription service. Listeners can subscribe to and download as many podcasts as they want. As a new method of downloading and transferring information, podcasting is revolutionizing the way we communicate. Podcasts differ from streaming video and audio. Podcasts are usually a continuous series of programs, with many episodes featured in serial format. Podcast subscribers can listen to the content on MP3 players or computers whenever they want. Unlike streaming video, no Internet connection is necessary to review the content of a podcast. But, due to their nature as stored files, podcasts can never be experienced live, in real time – again, unlike streaming video.

Podcasters, or people who create podcasts, have Web sites where their content is available for downloading. Can any old Joe start his own podcast? For better or worse, the answer is yes. All a would-be podcaster has to do is put his files on a web server thats accessible to the public. The file should have an internet address (URI). Podcast files can be any kind of files, from a PDF to a text file. The files can contain audio or video content. The would-be podcaster begins to create a series of files, creating a feed or list of URIs, so the entries in the series can be easily found and downloaded. Each entry is usually accompanied by a date, a title and some kind of content overview. The podcaster links the file to an identifiable place on the web server. This place is usually permanent, and its called the feed URI.

The popularity of these informational feeds has grown astronomically since 2004, when podcasting first became popular among bloggers and software developers. Podcasts cover all sorts of subjects, from technology to politics, to art and literature. Apple made podcasting part of its iTunes package in 2005, and last year, Sony Entertainment released a statement saying that its Play station Portable would be compatible with podcasts.

Now, podcasting has become a part of conventional media. The technology is being used by news stations and newspapers around the world, including The New York Times, The San Francisco Chronicle, the BBC, ABC in Australia, and Sirius satellite radio. The popularity of podcasting is expected to continue to grow, as print media becomes a less vital part of day-to-day communication. Check out New Technology TV for more information.

Is technology making social anxiety worse

Is technology making social anxiety worse

I love video games, I love my computer, and I love my flat screen, but I find myself wondering sometimes if technology is making social anxiety worse. Has the convenience that technology has given to us also hindered us from overcoming social anxiety as a whole? Has technology made overcoming social anxiety even more difficult by placing a virtual barrier between human interaction and physical contact?

We can research and make friends with people online, but there is a lack of human interaction. The advantage of being online is that you can find a community to help you with whatever problem you have, but the disadvantage is the lack of action. We start using the internet as our outlet to being social. There is a huge lack of “real” interaction. We can sit at home and keep ourselves entertained with the hundreds of channels we have. We can live our vicariously through the character we play on video games, hell we can even pay our bills online so we don’t have to interact with another human being.

I love the benefits that are given to us because of technology, don’t get me wrong. I think it’s great that I can do everything I listed above. I love the fact that I can save time and money by sitting at home. I think technology can help and hurt you at the same time.

The way that I figure it, technology is like a fine wine. Doctors say, for the time being anyway, that a glass of wine a day is good for you. On the other hand, If you drink too much, it can kill brain cells and also can cause liver problems. Technology, like wine, can affect your relationships if you take in too much of it and let it control your life.

I think it’s outstanding that I have friends from all over the world that I’ve never met and probably never will, but I think it can also stunt your growth when it comes to getting past the reality of shyness and social anxiety. I realize that technology is a tool we can use to reach out to others but we need to use it wisely and apply what we learn with it, to the outside world. We have to make sure we don’t use technology as a crutch to avoid physical social interaction.

The Advantages Of Individual Sports Over Team Sports

The Advantages Of Individual Sports Over Team Sports

Everyone raves about the benefits of team sports for children. They develop teamwork. They develop social skills and networks of friends and so on. But team sports may pale in comparison to individual performance sports when it comes to things like independent thought, leadership, and self reliance.

Self reliance is a skill undoubtedly developed in individual sports. As a sole performer, you’ve got no one to rely on but yourself. Training for that event you may have several friends and training partners helping you, but you know that it’s up to you on performance day. Whereas in group sports most athletes have the knowledge that success and failure both are a team effort, and no matter how well or how poorly one performs, it’s up to the team as a whole to work together and win. One may argue this develops dependence rather than independence.

In team sports, there may be a team captain whose real job is to boost moral and lead the team with confidence and focus. But the rest of the team is just that, part of a team. They are expected to perform their functions on that team to the best of their ability, and follow the team structure set up by the coach. They are trained to follow. Individual performance sports however, do not teach this skill as such. Trainees are still taught to follow and trust the coach, but the act of standing alone under pressure and following your own plan is what translates more closely to those skills of a leader.

Individual performance sports like martial arts, gymnastics, and various track and field events force the trainee to stand alone, to fight alone, and to perform alone. Decisions must be made by you and only you in the moment. If you fail, it is on your shoulders, and if you succeed, that too is your success alone. This creates a deep sense of self confidence and self reliance. It instills the knowledge that one is capable of acting alone against challenging circumstances. This is one of the most important things to learn in adult life.

So while team sports offer a lot of benefits to athletes in terms of social networking, team work and sportsmanship, individual performance sports should not be overlooked as great development tools for a strong, capable and confident adult, and one who is capable of standing and acting alone in accordance with their values and beliefs.

Things To Do Before Travelling Abroad

Things To Do Before Travelling Abroad

Getting everything done before heading off on a holiday can be difficult, but making sure your pre-travel list is completed will give you great peace of mind while on every single trip. Travel insurance, vaccinations, visas, and scanning documents can pile up on your ‘to-do’ post it notes, but all the little tasks done can really save you a lot of trouble while out on your adventures. This is especially true if you’re travelling outside of Europe or to places with special visa requirements.

This article has a six-item to-do list already set up for you to tick off. From booking your single trip travel insurance to checking your debit cards, you’ll find some helpful suggestions of things to get done before you get on the plane.

1. See your doctor

If you’re travelling outside of Europe, you might need to get vaccinations before you go, and in some cases, before you can even apply for a visa. It’s also not a bad idea to refill any prescription medication to last you through the duration of your travels.

2. Learn as much about your destination as possible

If you’re travelling to a place you know very little about, it’s a really good idea to read about the local customs and history before you leave. This will give context to many of the sites you’re seeing, and will provide insight into appropriate behaviours and attire.

3. Check in with your bank

Before you travel, check the expiry dates on your cards to make sure that they’ll last through the duration of your trip. It’s also not a bad idea to call your bank to let them know which countries you’ll be visiting, so no red flags go up which might led them to put a stop on your card when you need it.

4. Book Single Trip Travel Insurance

When travelling abroad, it’s a good idea to make sure you have single trip travel insurance to cover you in case of injury or loss of property. These policies are usually easy find and you can usually complete application forms online and just print out your proof of policy. Many countries require you to have cover before you can apply for a visa.

5. Scan your documents

Make a copy of your passport, insurance policy, card numbers, your ticket details, and any emergency contact information that you might need (including doctors, family members, and travel agent). Email these documents and this information to yourself, and also forward it to your family and friends.

6. Stock up your camera

Pack extra batteries; you don’t want your batteries to die on you when you’re just about to arrive at the Great Wall of China or Yosemite National Park. Remember you might not always have access to an outlet and pack extra memory cards as well, so you can snap photos to your heart’s content.
