Aircraft instruments are crucial for enacting safe flight, often being used to provide a pilot with information regarding their altitude, airspeed, orientation, and more. Distance measuring equipment (DME) is no different, allowing for distances between ground stations to be determined for the means of navigation. As a common tool that is often compared to GPS, it can be beneficial to understand DME and how it may be used in the case that you must rely on it for navigation during flight.

A network-attached storage (NAS) works to centralize data to simplify accessing stored information across multiple users and heterogeneous client devices. Allowing authorized users to access data from a centralized disk capacity, NAS are optimal if used when two or more servers need to access the same data. A convenient tool for archiving, data recovery, filing, emails, multimedia, databases, or printing jobs, NAS are a low-cost solution for organizations in part for their high capacity storage and ease of accessibility.

When discussing trim in the context of aviation, one is referring to the process of holding airspeed through the use of the trim tab and cockpit controls. When trimming for a certain speed and releasing the yoke, the aircraft can maintain the given speed regardless of current power settings. By adjusting power during a trim, the aircraft will begin to pitch upward or downward in order to maintain the trimmed speed. As such, trimming can be conducted during climbs, descents, cruising, final approaches, and other processes to hold airspeed.

Computing devices have become commonplace in almost every business and home in the developed world. Children are learning about computer technology as early as middle school as their usage is becoming ubiquitous. Designers and engineers have created an enjoyable end-user experience that focuses strongly on user interface and ease of access, but important insights can be learned from understanding how a computer processes information. Computers contain hundreds of parts, but the most important to understand are input, processing devices, output, and memory devices.
