托福词汇之“非屏幕时间Non-screen time”

  在托福考试真题中,往往会出现科技影响生活的话题。考生可以了解并参考本文的托福词汇解释。通过坚持不断的托福单词记忆和积累,打好托福备考的基础关。

  很多人都说90后一代大部分都是“屏幕儿童”,在电视、电脑等各类屏幕前长大,生活中一刻也离不开屏幕,跟家人的交流也因为屏幕的存在而显得心不在焉。如今,国外不少家庭都会设定“非屏幕时间”,在这个时间段内,大家都得面对面交流,不得使用任何屏幕。

  Non-screen time is a kind of tech-life balance strategy that all members of a family agree not to use any screen during certain hours of the day. These agreements may include: no screens before school, all mobiles on the landing at night, no calls at meal-times, etc.

  非屏幕时间(non-screen time)是在生活中保证高科技设备使用不会过度的一种手段,所有家庭成员一致同意在每天的某些特定时段不使用任何形式的屏幕设备。这些协议包括:上学前不用屏幕、晚上不得碰手机、吃饭时不得打电话,等等。

  Non-screen time isn't about abstinence but balance, and being "present" and connected.

  非屏幕时间并不是一种限制措施,而是在保持平衡;是让每个人真正在场并且彼此互动相连。

  与此同时,因为移动互联网的普及,各类屏幕间的信息传送和共享也更便利。由此,“多屏幕分享”就出现了。

  在电脑上看到的某个视频想要一抬手就传到手机上,或者将移动设备中存储的文件一键传送到大屏幕或者电视上,这样的想法如今通过多屏幕分享(nth screen)技术都可以实现了。

  The 'nth screen' has been lingering around the tech world for several years, but is expected to hit the big time in 2014. It basically means devices that are able to connect and share content between multiple displays. Sharing is caring, apparently, and companies will let you connect their devices together for a greater user experience. There is, however, a catch, as many companies will create connecting devices that can only connect to devices of the same brand. So your Samsung device may not connect with your Apple device. This is due to the company's need to keep consumers dedicated to their brand.

  Nth screen在科技界游走已经好几年了,不过有望在2014年大放异彩。Nth screen指可以通过多个显示器连接并共享内容的设备,我们称之为“多屏幕分享”。分享就是关心,很显然,科技公司会让你把他们所有的设备都连接起来以获得更好的用户体验。不过,这里面还存在一个隐患,很多公司开发的连接设备只允许连接相同品牌的设备。所以,你的三星设备无法与苹果设备连接。这主要是因为公司需要保证消费者对其品牌的忠诚度。
