Technology in 2017 & trends for 2018

It’s been a long year full of interesting things in 2017. I think highlights on the scene of technology in 2017 are …

Larger screens on smart phones – which is good and I love the futuristic design manufacturers are making. Since the official colour of 2018 is ultraviolet, the well know colour of cyberpunk, I think design in 2018 will get even more in futuristic direction.


Electric car development – beside Tesla, which is electric car only company, other well know car manufacturers are also selling electric cars. The story was also covered on Business Insider. That story of electric cars will probably follow in 2018…

And crypto currencies. Even The Guardian posted a story on the digital coin phenomena. What is the point of blockchain and cryptocurrencies anyway? It’s available for anybody in the world who has a computer and internet access. And there are stories online on co-called bitcoin millionaires like Winklevoss twins (that guy’s who sued Mark Zuckerberg because of Facebook project).

IBM offers (if you don’t mind sharing with them some personal information) free download of Blockchain for Dummies.

What’s next in 2018? We will see… But according to website trends in 2018 are: Artificial Intelligence, IoT and SDE – Software Defined Everything.

Wish you a succesful and futuristic 2018!

Subnetting: engineers hidden secret

Tonight a short guide in the world of subnetting. What is subnetting? Well taken from Wikipedia it’s:

A subnetworks or subnet is a logical subdivision of an IP network.
The practice of dividing a network into two or more networks is called subnetting.

Patch cables

So it’s like this we have hosts, clients and network stations. Hosts are usually main computers, servers or mainframes. Clients are usually computers from users. Network stations are switches, routers and other network devices. To make things work we connect this devices in to network that we provide information flow. Every device in ethernet environment has IP. We can configure this IP’s in logical network. We have different topologies, but that’s not relevant now.

Spring/Summer plans? On-line courses!

Another thing I love about free time its ideal to start a new project and keep myself busy, that’s pretty much how 24itworld started.  I wanted to do something new and share my passion about tech.

IPv6: time for transit?

There are currently three operative technologies for trafficking packets in IPv6. The main question here is, how to developed system that can be used on IPv4 and IPv6 applications on existing machines? This means that for example if you have server running on IPv6 that can communicate with IPv4 clients or vice versa. This might sound like a simple problem to solve, but complexity is much bigger. You can solve that kind of problem with additional hardware upgrades or software solutions – however this solutions and development doesn’t come cheap and it takes some time to put it in production.

List of 6 interesting features of Windows 10

The thing that it’s cool about Windows is that every time they release new operating system it has many new build in apps and features.

Windows 10: desktop & applications

Snipping tool is handy app that we can use on every day base in the office or while chatting with friend. With Windows 10 we can find more apps in Windows store like WiFi Analyzer. The biggest surprise is of course 3D builder. Sadly it’s available only in language by location language of Operating System (this means if you choose operating system English but location is I don’t know, Slovenia for example the language of Windows Store will be Slovenian), so half of my apps on laptop are in English OS default language and half in Slovenian – country OS Windows store language. But hey, funny coincidences like that are reason we like Windows.
