Many companies including Apple , Disney, Hewlett-Packard, Harley-Davidson, Google, Amazon and Mattel started their businesses in garages. Today’s start-ups, or, the multinational corporation of tomorrow can start their businesses in low-cost container facilities. Imagine what if Apple was started in a shipping container.

Shipping containers are in many ways an ideal building material. They are designed to resist harsh environments and therefore they can offer shelter even for natural disasters. They are also designed to be modular what makes it easy to use additional construction material to complete the buildings.

Shipping container construction is said to have lower labor costs compared to traditional construction. This can be explained by their simple steel structure that only requires welding and cutting procedures to be modified. Building a garage for your Harley-Davidson, BMW or Mercedes could not be more pleasant!

For start-ups, container offices are an excellent approach for creating expendable business facilities in relatively little time. They take offices out of garages and create new business opportunities. Shipping containers have another connection with garages. Containers can become them. If you plan your own DIY garage project or plan on starting a business, I recommend sending a price inquiry in Shanghai Metal Corporation‘s contact page.

But because the price  of the computer called Lisa was too high for consumers, Macintosh had to be the solution. Macintosh’s  ground breaking TV commercial, directed by Ridley Scott, was aired during the third quarter of Super Bowl XVIII on January 22, 1984. apple-1984 Due to conflicts with the board of directors, Jobs was fired in 1985. According to his speech in the university of Stanford in 2005, getting fired from Apple was one of the best things ever happened to him. In 1996 Apple bought NeXt, the company founded by Jobs, and then began the era of iMacs, iPods, iPhones and iPads. In the beginning of September 2014, we all witnessed the publish of the new iPhone 6 and the Apple Watch. iPhone-6-and-the-Apple-Watch Many companies after and before Apple have started their business operations from a garage.

Motorbike Performance Copper Exhaust Gaskets

image

Copper is a ductile metal with very high thermal conductivity. Therefore, copper exhaust gaskets increase flow between 7 to CFM (Cubic feet per minute) depending on the motorcycle model and head work. Unlike gash gaskets which can restrict exhaust gas flow, these copper gaskets permits unrestricted flow, leading to a better and a leaner performance of your engine.

Moreover, gaskets that are made of mesh don’t guarantee a perfect sealing. On the other hand copper is a solid material which proportionate a perfect fit into the cylinder port, meaning no more air leaks and subsequently a loss of power; preventing an excessive wear and tear of your engine.

Therefore, when your next service is due, think wisely and upgrade and a pair of copper gaskets. It will not only last a lot longer but it will also save you some cash every service.
