EE’s 4G Network Going Live On 30th October

EE

4G finally goes live in the UK on the 30th of October heralding a new dawn of super-fast internet for Brits. After heavy delays caused by legal threats between the networks and legal threats within the industry, Orange and T Mobile’s owner, Everything Everywhere, has been granted permission by Ofcom to plough on ahead with the launch of the first LTE network on British soil over their existing 2G spectrum.

As part of the deal Everything Everywhere has been forced to sell off a chunk of this to Three Mobile so that they don’t have monopolistic control over the new technology. Next year, the other networks will get their pick of the airwaves as the government prepares to sell of the 4G spectrum. Unfortunately, however, Apple’s iPhone 5 will only work at full speed on the old 2G spectrum that will be available from EE and Three. If you’re … Read the rest

How Web Bugs Can Compromise Your Privacy

no-bugs

Any hidden web page object that is used to track visitors without being clearly visible is known as a web bug. They are invisible in order to covertly track a web visitor. If the object was visible, it would get in the way of the page, make visitors suspicious and probably be blocked. Scripts, iframes, images and other objects are used to create web bugs. The images and objects used generally don’t have any borders and are transparent though sometimes they merely blend into the background. The elements of web bugs are downsized to such a degree that the human eye simply cannot see them.

 

In addition, their tiny size means that their transfer rates will be all but unnoticeable. Visitors are tracked using cookies, IP addresses, header information and much more. Although web bugs may only track the visitor’s current page, there are bugs capable of going through … Read the rest

How to choose a domain name

domainname

The internet has changed the way we do business and a website is an essential part of any company. Whatever your business is, the internet is the easiest way to let the world know about your services. From multinational firms to small one man bands, if you don’t have a website, then you are losing out and somebody else is taking your potential clients. When you start a website, the first thing that you will need to decide upon is what you wish the address of your site to be. Websites all have an address and these are known as domain names. Choosing domain names is quite important as this is generally how people will find you and sometimes judge your worth before they even look at your site.

A good idea is to try and make your domain name close or the same as the name of your company … Read the rest

Cloud Computing and the Print Industry

cloud-printing

For the uninitiated, cloud computing is basically computing over a remote network of servers in one location securely accessed by various signed up individuals and organisations. The data held on these networks are securely held and are able to be accessed by various people working on the same project. In a nutshell, it is like a global hard drive. Rather than having to carry USB sticks and email documents across time zones and locations, all the people working on a particular project can have 24/7 access to the various bits of data from different contributors going into that project. Initially, this all might seem very disruptive to the print industry. However, cloud computing poses a number of benefits and companies in the field of print are learning to adapt.

Firstly, it is speeding up the production process through real time collaboration. Collaborators no longer have to send designs back and … Read the rest

Benchmark your data storage device

datatransfer

When you buy a data storage, or build your own, say, a RAID, you naturally want it to work fast. I have never met a single person who does like the slow drives.

However, often the real-life read/write speed of a device is somewhat different from the values advertised by a vendor or in case of DIY device from the design-time speed estimation.

There are many reasons why a device performs slower than expected. For example, when analyzing NAS performance, you should take into account the throughput of network to which you connect the NAS. For the external drives connected to a PC via USB, the overall performance will be limited by USB bus which at least five times slower than the slowest hard drive.

However, before you set to find out why your data storage device doesn’t provide the maximum performance, let’s learn how to measure the performance.

As a small business owner, you know that time is money. You simply do not have the time to devote to online marketing efforts that may or may not generate visitors to your website and convert them to customers. You have a finite amount of time to devote to online marketing efforts. Moreover, you need to see a return on the time investment when you allocate your valuable time resources to online marketing.

Most small business owners agree that internet marketing would benefit their business. However, with limited time available to learn the techniques of online marketing and even less time available to monitor successes that do not immediately translate into ROI, small business owners need a lean, mean initiation strategy to quickly and efficiently implement online marketing.

Trends in HTML Coding

html5

Since its creation in the earliest days of the Internet Era, the Hypertext Markup Language (HTML) has struggled to find a place as anything more than a tool for the presentation or formatting of text and images. HTML 5 has provided both the base functionality and ease of extensibility that promises to elevate the once-lowly markup language to a useful application development tool.

HTML 5 is best thought of as a web standard which combines the simplicity of HTML, the presentation flexibility of the Cascading Style Sheet 3 specification, and JavaScript’s ability to access and manipulate real-time data on both the server and application levels. Although each of these has its own relative strengths and weaknesses, they are at their most synergistic when used concurrently within the HTML 5 framework.

A complete study of HTML 5 is far beyond the scope of this short article. For a more thorough review … Read the rest

Internet Connection Types

ethernet-connection

Over the last two decades, the Internet has pervaded our everyday lifestyles in a way that makes the cyber world less of a luxury and more of a necessity for access to opportunity and information. With that in mind, not everyone requires the same connection speed for their Internet service, as we all tend to use it with a different purpose in mind. To make the search for the ideal Internet connection a little bit simpler, let’s look at some common Internet options and dissect which speed may best meet your own online needs.

Dial-Up

By far the most inexpensive of Internet options, dial-up – otherwise known as analog (56k) – is famous for — beyond its trademark connection sound — boasting the slowest Internet connection speed on the market. Using an ISP-provided public telephone network to connect, the quality of the access is relatively poor compared to its competitors … Read the rest
