Unix operating systems are widely used both as a server or workstation. Architectural model of Unix and client / server is the most important element in the development of internet and change the computing process is centralized in the network from a single process on a computer. Linux, an operating system that was adopted from the freely available Unix and gained popularity as an alternative to proprietary operating systems like Microsoft Windows


In 1969, project by AT & T Multics was stopped because too late, not in accordance with the schedule, also because the distance between an expanding priset, between New Jersey and MIT Labs.

In 1969 also, Ken Thompson, a researcher who also worked on the Multics project using a computer PDP-& try to realize the idea of Multics in liaison with Dennis Ritchie, who also previously worked in the Multics project.

In 1973, Unix by Ken Thompson rewritten using the new language from Ritchie C, C language is designed to be portable from one computer to be brought to other computers. In 1977, Mike Lesk develop "ported I / 0 library," library that can be taken to overcome the difficulties brought UNIX from one computer to another computer system because differences in the handling of I / 0 from any computer, Unix was first brought into the laboratory Interdata 8 / 32 , the same microcomputer with the PDP-11.

Car DVD Players Buying Guide

This sophisticated technology is now very mendukund convenience and practicality in human beraktifitas day.
In rushing in the middle of big cities, refreshing in a little leisure time is necessary. Therefore, many people treat it well.
One example is berkaraoke, karaoke is being sought by masayarakat city. Car Shopwiki offer a DVD that you can berkaraoke along in leisure time.
A portable DVD with a lot of sophistication-sophistication in it.

Car DVD players are becoming more and more popular, and likewise prices are dropping dramatically. Consumers can now afford a player at a modest price. There has been some criticism and debate on the subject though because a lot of people think that having a DVD player in one's car is overkill. Obviously, if you are the only one riding in your car it would be silly to have a DVD player because you can't watch while you drive. Not only is it illegal, but it is ludicrously dangerous.

But if you own a family car and want to keep the kids entertained while you drive, a car DVD player can be a great device to have in the car. Car DVD players are great for road trips.

How to Choose a Car DVD Player

There are several different ways of going about choosing a car DVD player. The first thing that usually sticks out for most consumers is the price tag. If you have a good amount of money to spend, you should look into creating a surround sound car theater system ($400+). For those of us on a budget, the cheapest car DVD Player systems can cost from about $200 and up.

Many higher end DVD Players for your car are now including GPS Navigation systems as well. These can also include the ability to play your iPod through the DVD/navigation system. Check out the top rated system above and look around for your GPS navigation DVD player combo.

Portable DVD Players

The Budget Option:

The best way to get entertainment in your car without breaking the bank is to opt for an all-in-one system that provides hours of fun beyond the confines of a vehicle.

  • Compact, folding DVD player with a clamshell design makes for a lightweight but sturdy device.
  • prices have come down dramatically over the last several years.
  • Built-in speakers and screen means no extra purchases.
  • Lighter and cheaper than a laptop if all you want to do is watch movies on the go.
  • No installation required. Just invest in a car kit and/or adapter if you want fuller sound.
  • To permanently install a portable DVD player in a car you will need a mount.
  • Take them from one car to another, or even on an airplane, train, or use at home.

Some top models to check out (C-Net):

Ceiling Mount DVD Players

High-end Option ($500-$700)

These models cost more than a portable DVD player and they are a more permanent car entertainment option.

  • Perfect for multi-user backseat viewing, especially in SUVs or other large vehicles, because the screen can be up to 10" or more.
  • Might require professional installation.
  • Great space saver, plus it folds up out of the way when you need to put large items in the back seat.
  • Keep in mind that some flip-down monitors don't come with the DVD player included as part of the package. Make sure to look for all-in-one models.
In-Dash Receivers

Economical Option

This is where creating a car DVD system gets really fun. You can choose your components from a wider selection of products. You can get an in-dash receiver that plays both CDs and DVDs. You can install the screen anywhere, either from the ceiling, the sunvisor, on the back of the headrest or even in the center console. It's up to you. Basically, the screen and the player device will tap into the car's stereo system for creating surround sound if your car is set up for it.

  • These monitors come built-in with the receiver usually, however, there is the option of buying the video monitor and the receiver separately.
  • They are easy to install, as they fit onto any standard dash opening.
  • Most models have great sound, tone control, and are easily expanded to incorporate GPS devices, cameras, and more.
  • When driving, they act as a command center with a touch screen. Otherwise, to watch videos, the car must be parked with the emergency break on. This is otherwise known as a receiver with built-in DVD playback.
  • Another similar option that costs less is a CD receiver with a retractable monitor.
    • These can be very useful because they can handle various tasks and have multiple inputs. They can usually handle CDs, MP3 files, and DVDs. They even hook up with your GPS Devices (search for GPS units to buy).
    • Make sure that the model has a touch-screen for easy use while driving. It should be as simple as possible to avoid creating any distractions.
    • Some have iPod compatibility, such as the Clarion VRX755VD.
    • Check for a model with multi-zone audio if you plan to have it linked with a surround sound system.
Headrest Style Monitors

This is an ideal setup for backseat viewing. Dual monitor sets can be purchased at reduced costs for two-person backseat viewing. If you have more than one child, this may be an absolute necessity for you and not as much of an option to keep squabbling to a minimum.

  • Headrest monitors must be professionally or self-installed, which tends to be the cheaper route. Swivel headrests tend to give the best viewing vantage regardless of daylight or glare.
  • As an alternate option, you can purchase headrest bracket mounts that eliminate the need for doing any splicing or dicing to your upholstery.
  • There are also replacement headrests with the monitor pre-installed.
  • With all of the above models, you need to purchase an in-dash or center console receiver to act as a media player. There are also players that can be tucked away under a seat.

Manufacturers Include:

Extra Features

TV Compatibility: Most DVD players come with the ability to play various media types such as VCD, SVCD, and WMA.

Placement: Decide where you want to put your player. If this is going to be used primarily by the kids in the backseat, go for a headrest/stand-in car or roof mount screen. Otherwise, a sunvisor or in-dash screen may be a better option for front seat viewing (but not while driving of course). Keep in mind that cheaper models offer small, lightweight players with 4" to 6" screens. These aren't the best option if the player is destined to multi-user viewing. A 7" screen size is good for proper viewing. Anything larger than that and you will start to compromise portability (both size and weight) and price. A 10" display screens usually cost around $500 and up.

Video Quality: Don't expect that these little gadgets are going to produce crystal clear video reproduction. They are no comparison to a home LCD Televisions (search for LCD Television to buy). Picture quality is important though, especially since if you want to use the player in bright conditions, the screen should be of the highest caliber.

Sound Quality: Usually budget all-in-one models don't produce great sound with their integrated speakers. If you want the best sounding system, go with a component system that you can upgrade with various audio components, such as speakers.

Battery Life: Not many of the removable all-in-one systems actually have great battery life. What manufacturers claim is often exaggerated, but at least if you have the DVD player in a convenient spot you can plug it into the car lighter socket.

  • Beware of installing DVD players in your car because like expensive CD players and speaker systems, they are also a target for thieves. Make sure your car has a good security system.
