32 and 64 Bit Computers

There are several elements of computer hardware; In general they don’t concern users until, there is greater objective to make optimum utilization of every resource in the machine. One of them is the 'data buss', which facilitates transportation of data among all the elements of computer system and also connects memory to the rest of the system, including the brain of computer called processor.

In a 32-bit computer, data buss size is 32-bits wide, wherein buss size gets doubled in a 64-bit computer, so 64 bit computer is capable of carrying twice the size of data around the system elements.

  • 64-bit machines are having more advanced security features like Kernel Patch Protection
  • 64-bit device drivers are digitally signed to avoid random crashes.


  • Context to web surfing it may not demonstrate significant difference but heavy graphics processing and scientific calculations will be more efficient in 64 bit computers.
  • Strongly recommended for graphics applications ie: photo, video, games, CAD, etc. 
  • A 64-bit OS allows you to run greater memory wherein 32-bit restricted to maximum of 4 GB RAM.

Diagnosing Health Diagnostic World

Only about 30% of population are blessed with proper healthcare in the present healthcare setting in India, and about 7% are fortunate to encounter right healthcare. Almost 70% populace are dependent on home based medication, quacks, RMPs, and God.

Diagnostic is the key element of health treatment process; Even experts need patients’ diagnostic done to identify disorder precisely. In the present scenario, abundance of labs doesn't guarantee precise diagnostic as all the samples might not under go testing as quickly as taken from patients, and tend to loose its veracity. Also, there are many chances for samples not reaching to diagnostic equipment in original form, so results can always be challenged.

There are many reasons for lack of precision in lab reports:-
Poor collections logistics and process.
Quality and advancement of technology usage.
Intention behind test recommendation.

More than 80% diagnostics ordered by physicians turn out with negative results! Isn’t it big surprise? My mind is trying to disentangle few questions-

1. Aren't Physicians qualified enough in triage process?
2. Is Physician’s intention restricted to precise diagnostic?
3. Does lab test charges includes Physicians’ commission as well?
