It’s going to be the year when everyone – your grandparents and technophobe friends included – embraces the Internet of Things. It’ll be the year when it finally pushes past being the preserve of early-adopters and power users, and enters the mainstream. You can quote me on that.
So, what makes me so confident? In a word: evolution. Smart home technology has undergone its own Cambrian Explosion, and it promises to make your life much more convenient in the years to come. Here’s why.
Most computers today ship with a 64-bit version of Windows, and often a minimal amount of RAM. This brings into question how well these systems perform. This is especially true when users want to run their legacy 32-bit software on these new computers.
Which raises an interesting question. Do you need more or less RAM to run a 32-bit application on a 64-bit version of Windows?
Is it true that running 32-bit apps on a 64-bit windows system consumes 1.5 times more memory compared to running the 32-bit app under a 32-bit Windows operating system?
