In desktop publishing, camera-ready refers to the final state of a publication before it is printed. Historically, the term has meant that the copy is ready to be photographed and turned into plates for offset printing. Increasingly, however, it is possible to print directly from the electronic version, either by sending it to a high-resolution laser printer or to a special device that can generate plates directly from electronic elements rather than from photographs. In these cases, therefore, camera-ready means merely that the document is ready to be printed.
Abbreviated cd, the International System of Units standard unit of measurement of luminous intensity. The candela is equal to the luminous intensity in a given direction of a source that emits monochromatic radiation of frequency 540 x 1012 hertz and has a radiant intensity in that direction of 1/683 watt per unit solid angle The […]
- candy bar
A candy bar or candy bar mobile is a mobile phone form factor where the phone is a solid device with no moving parts except for the keypad buttons, and in some cases, the antenna. Because the candy bar style does not have anything covering the buttons these types of phones offer a key guard […]

- capacitive keyboard
A type of keyboard design that uses changes in capacitance, or stored static electricity, rather than changes in flows of electricity used by contact keyboards to register when a user has depressed a specific key on the keyboard. Under the keyboard��s keys are capacitors that store electricity as opposite static charges in pairs of conductive […]
A passive electronic component that holds a charge in the form of an electrostatic field. They are often used in combination with transistors in DRAM, acting as storage cells to hold bits. Capacitors typically consist of conducting plates separated by thin layers of dielectric material, such as dry air or mica. The plates on opposite […]
