Cell Phone Towers In Hiding

While driving down any American roadway it is not an unusual sight to see electrical lines, telephone poles, and cell phone towers. You may notice, however, that there do not seem to be enough cell phone towers in comparison to how many cell phone customers exist. This phenomenon is caused by the fact that you are not looking in the right places. Cell phone towers have gone into hiding, disguising themselves as trees, church steeples, and even gas station signs in an attempt to preserve the look of the landscape.

Cell phone towers are a necessary element to allow us to transmit our signals from cell phones and must be placed at appropriate intervals along the highway. Unlike other utility towers and poles, these structures are wireless and usually solitary. The number of towers needed in an area is directly proportional to the density of cell phone users. As different cell phone companies use different antennas that are all located on the same cell phone tower, these structures can be quite unsightly. Thus the cell phone tower began to be disguised.

Cell phone “trees” have become the most popular disguise that these technological giants assume. These “plants” come in every shape and form depending on what species of trees are close by to help them blend in. This disguise is usually part of a landscape theme or a forest. In the Pacific Northwest, Douglas firs are a popular species that are “planted” among the thick woods and forests in this mountainous region. In southern California, different species of “palm trees” blend in with their natural counterparts along the streets and boulevards. In the desert of Arizona, “cacti” are springing up in the most remote regions. While birds do not nest in these “trees, other wildlife call these towers home, such as various bugs and insects who do not seem to be able to distinguish these “plants” from the natural ones.

There are several advantages to these cell phone “trees” that natural trees do not have. The cell phone species do not lose their leaves and maintain their color indefinitely. They never need pruning or trimming and maintain their original shape in and out of season. Cell phone “trees” are also immune to diseases, tree parasites, and drought. These “trees” do not require watering or even soil for that matter. They can survive just as easily in concrete and can be “planted” anywhere. If you are a hay fever sufferer, there is also no pollen present.

Opponents argue that these cell phone “trees” are dangerous to the surrounding environment. These individuals point out the fact that was previously mentioned that birds do not nest in these “plants”, explaining that the birds may know something that we do not and claim that these “trees” are a potential health hazard. While there has long been a debate about cancer being linked to power lines and electrical towers, a possible link between this disease and cell phone towers is being hotly debated. Opponents also point out that while these cell phone “trees” look better that the traditional towers, the public may be exposing themselves to potential health hazards without even knowing that the towers are there. Of course, when these individuals are out locating these health-threatening towers, they are probably calling the locations in to their bosses on their cell phones.

Cell phone towers are a necessity to modern life, and if by disguising these mechanical monstrosities as beautiful trees can help us preserve the natural look of the surrounding environment, most people would agree that it is a beneficial policy.

Scaffolding Towers Review: Youngman’s BoSS Evolution Scaffolding Tower

Scaffolding towers are more suited for construction and home renovation projects than simple ladders but there are obvious risks involved when using one. Safety is the number one consideration when buying your own scaffolding tower system. Therefore the danger of choosing the wrong one could lead to disastrous results. So in buying your very own scaffolding tower system you need to take into consideration the following:

  1. Material – aluminum and steel are the usual choices because of its tensile strength but composite scaffolding made up of fiberglass is also available
  2. Compliance to British and European standards – EN 1004 or the standard for mobile access working towers
  3. Strength & Stability – this is attributed to the metal thickness and tube diameter

Dell Precision Tower 3620 Review of a Powerful Workstation With Compact Design and Great Performance

Just because a machine is a powerful workstation doesn’t mean it has to be big and bulky. In fact, you can get a lot of power and speed in a small form, thanks to the new mini tower and small form factor designs of the Dell Precision Tower 3620. The standard tower is still available as well if you have enough space for it and want to add multiple hard drives.

The SFF tower is the most compact small form factor design in the industry, and the mini tower still has enough room for expansion as your business requirements grow.

This is a nice looking workstation with its “utilitarian” design. The chassis is matte black and the front portion of the case features a grille. The small form factor version is 11.42-inches high, 3.65-inches wide, and 11.5-inches in depth. Its weight starts at just 11.68-lbs. The measurements of the mini tower are 14.17 x 6.89 x 12.17-inches (H x W x D).

There are a number of hardware certifications that come with the Dell Precision Tower 3620 to ensure its quality and performance. Dell ISV certifications cover a variety of software applications as well, as the company partners with other industry-leading IT companies to solve today’s most complex problems of computing.

Another great feature that is available with this workstation is the Precision Optimizer. Since different applications have different system requirements in order to run smoothly, the Optimizer takes all of the guesswork out of customizing settings. The technology works together with SCCM centralized management for the purpose of automatically tuning the computer to run popular ISV applications at the ideal speed, therefore enhancing productivity.

Dell Precision Tower 3620 Specifications

As far as hardware goes, the Dell Precision Tower 3620 comes with some great specs. The following are all included in the starting price:

• OS: Windows 10 Pro

• Processor: Intel Core i5 7th generation (up to 3.8GHz with Turbo / 6MB) with HD graphics 630

• Primary hard drive: 1TB SATA 3.5-inch 7200 RPM

• Memory: 1 x 8GB / Non-ECC / 2400 MHz / DDR4 UDIMM

There is room for multiple hard drives (up to 5 in the standard, large tower), so you can easily add as much storage as you want. All types of drives, including SSDs, run well in this machine. While no optical drive is included, you can add one to your order if you want a DVD or Blu-Ray drive. However, the optical drive is only an option on the SFF tower and not the mini tower. If integrated graphics are not enough, you can go with an AMD-single, nVIDIA single, or even a DUAL set up for extra graphics power.

No matter which version of the Dell Precision Tower 3620 you choose, this workstation comes with a variety of USB ports, a Display Port, HDMI, line-out connector, and more.

This Dell Precision Tower 3620 review covered a lot of what the computer has to offer. However, there is still more to learn about it, including how to save money when buying it online. There are Dell promotional codes and coupons for you to look over if you want to get a great deal.
