As all search engines are different they all operate in slightly different ways. The good news is that the same search techniques can be applied to them all, but, as might be expected, each one is a variation around the same theme. To make it even worse not all search engines actually search the Internet, some are what is known as web directories. Then, just to confuse the picture even more some engines do keyword searches while others are concept based.

In American homes, or so the story goes, when visitors arrive they are given a cookie which in Britain would be a biscuit. This philosophy has now been extended to the Internet. Whenever a visitor, better known as a Browser, arrives at certain sites a cookie is sent down the line and saves itself to the local computer's hard disk.

HDMI. The High-Definition Multimedia Interface has been around since the early 2000s, and was developed for consumer electronics devices such as Blu-ray Disc players and HDTVs.

Thunderbolt. The Thunderbolt standard (formerly called Light Peak) is aimed at being able to use a single interface for multiple device connections. Thunderbolt is a 10Gbps (1.25GBps) interface that combines PCI-E (Peripheral Component Interconnect Express) with DisplayPort in a single, thin cable. It can daisy-chain compatible devices, and it supports hubs, which lets you use a single cable connection to link your computer to a mouse, keyboard, monitor, and external storage drive. Even data from an external RAID (redundant array of independent drives) array of SSDs wouldn’t hit a bottleneck on its way to your computer, thanks to Thunderbolt.

DisplayPort is a super-fast, 21.6Gbps interface designed to carry video to computer monitors. With this much bandwidth on tap, it’s able to accommodate greater resolution, faster refresh rates, and more color depth than HDMI (High-Definition Multimedia Interface). Besides professional media content generation applications, DisplayPort (sometimes abbreviated DP) is ideal for multiple-monitor setups.
