Compad

Content loaded! Viewing article Compad on Galactipedia in language English.   [A 3 dimensional model of acompad with text in the languages English and Unknown   Compads are graphene-based tablets which function much in the same way as a Human's computer. All of their data, aside from the firmware and BIOS, is stored in the @nebula which is a cloud of small data storage disks, each of which store a zettabyte of data, which float around in space and connect to the Central Databank at the Galactian Centre. Most species are given a compad when they enter the childhood phase of their life, often between ages 3 and 7, and most people keep the same Compad for the rest of their life, with hardware updates often used in place of replacement pads.   The only GP wide law on compads is that the latest a person can be given a compad is aged 10, for identification and legal reasons   Compads come with a specific string set up which cannot be changed. This is used in direct/group messages, as well as when editing pages, to make sure the recipient is the correct person. A persons D/GM display name can be changed by the person in the settings.   Everyone over 10 years of age with a compad is given a Public Account. This allows them to interact with social networking sites and update Pages that they are given access to. (Page Access levels: No Access (only the owner can access it) Read Only (only the owner can edit it, anyone can read it) Moderated Rewrite (owner can block edits) Read Write (anyone can edit it))   Communication between the device and the nearest Nebula uses Superluminals. From there the Nebula sends it through hyperspace to the other Nebulae. Data transfer through hyperspace is almost instantaneous. Superluminals can take between 5 seconds and 2 minutes.

Utility

All the features a person has installed on their compad can be found on the home screen of the compad, aside from the pre-installed and non-deletable apps (Messaging, Pages, Settings, FeatureStore, and, for those over the age of 10, Balance and Healthlog) include Blogger, WatchMe, Project-a-gram, Microtext, Draw!3D, DateMate, ParentalSettings and the official Galactipedia app.    The functions of the pre-installed apps are quite basic. Messaging allows you to send messages to people on your Contacts list. Pages allows you to view, edit and create text, image and audio based Pages, each with a Pager, allowing others and yourself to access them. Settings is used to lower brightness and audio, as well as offering a wide range of customisation and accessibility features, and enable you to connect various other devices to your compad. FeatureStore enables the user to buy and/or install other features. Balance shows the users total number of Galriks and enables them to make purchases and sell items, and Healthlog keeps track of the user's health, especially is connected to a health monitor.   Of the popular Features, Blogger, Microtext and DateMate are found under FeatureStores Social Networking category, WatchMe under Media, Project-a-gram and ParentalSettings under Utilities, Draw!3D under creativity and Galactipedia under Information.   The other categories on FeatureStore are Games, Customisation Extensions, Education and News.    Some Features are also available on Pages, such as Galactipedia and several Social Networking Features, including Blogger.    Often Pages will include content which can be shown as a holographic projection, if Project-a-gram is installed. If not, then the 3D image is shown as a 2D image which the user can drag to rotate. Similarly, Draw!3D can be used with or without Project-a-gram, yet it is recommended to install Project-a-gram Model by Snooze on Sketchfab

Access & Availability
Upon reaching a certain age, normally about 3-7 years, citizens are given a compad. The Galactian Prime considers it a right of everyone over the age of 10 to have a compad, as well as younger citizens of most species, depending on their species' set age.
Complexity
Superluminals and data Nebulas are also needed to connect compads together.
