There many uses of the internet with many of them available to us in the form of apps. These apps may be essential for some functions, such as gaming apps for playing online mobile games, while some only serve as a supplement to an existing online service, such as a travel app for a travel review site.
Just because an app serves as a supplement to an existing online service does not mean that it is any less useful for users. Instead, the convenience it brings make it an essential to in the eyes of users who have become dependent on such apps. It’s like the difference between having a razor and getting permanent hair removal. While you can make do with the first, being hairless forever is even better!
For businesses, what this means is that it is important to think of ways to serve your customers better by making available an app that they would really find invaluable as part of your business strategy.

I love playing video games. In particular, I love playing with my Playstation 3. In fact, I have two units at home. That’s how much I love Sony’s console. Two things that I love about the PS3 is the free multiplayer gaming and the many games and demos I can download from the Playstation Network.
Unfortunately, downloading on the PSN can be quite a chore. For some reason, in my network, downloading games on the PSN is slower when compared with direct PC downloads. That’s why I use CCProxy. This application makes your desktop PC a proxy server for the PS3, which makes downloading faster. The freeware version is more than enough for home use.

In SharePoint Server products, you can get a lot of mileage out of something as simple as a list. A SharePoint list is a collection of similar items, which may contain columns or fields that define the item data or metadata schema. Each item stored in a list shares the same schema.
Now you will be thinking how is a SharePoint Server 2010 List different from a SharePoint Library, right? Simple, in SharePoint lists, items are defined by metadata or the columns of a list with documents being attached to that metadata. In a SharePoint library, a document is the item with library metadata supporting the document.
Lists in SharePoint resemble database tables in structure and behavior. Lists support various field or data types, and can have triggers that react to list events such as creating, updating, or deleting items. In addition, lists can be configured to filter, sort, or group items based on item data or properties. SharePoint lists also support various methods of visualization, both in the display of data and in the editing or entry of item data.
Take the benefits of SharePoint family of products including SharePoint Foundation, Microsoft SharePoint Server 2007, and free SharePoint web parts and templates.

BitTorrent is an content distribution protocol that allows distribution through the internet of software and peer-to-peer sharing of large files like shows and movies. It does this by enabling users to serve as network redistribution points. The holder of the content sends it to one user who sends it to other users and they share the pieces of the download until everyone completes it. Because of this, the original server can serve many requests without using immense bandwidth. This is very efficient because it saves time; a full-length movie can arrive within a few hours and sound files within minutes.

A directory harvest attack is an action that involves seeking the valid e-mail addresses that are connected to an e-mail server and adding them to a spam database. Harvesting e-mail addresses can be done either by sending messages to different possible user-names which are generated by randomly combining letters and numbers. Another method is sending messages to likely user-names like initials followed by common surnames. If the e-mail account is invalid, the server will reply “not found”. However if a valid e-mail account receives the message, the message doesn’t return thus the DHA program retains the e-mail address for future spamming. Spam filters are internet applications that could counteract this; consider downloading them into your computer.

With 18 percent market share to 74 for IE by Net Application stats, Mozilla is surely a blast. And now, major websites just have to support FireFox. Apple’s safari which is available now in Windows too is third in rank with 6 percent share. Next contender is Opera saying that the browser is the single most significant piece of software made nowadays which badly needs innovation if you intend to extend the reach of the web. Having a lot of competitors and a richer web is surfacing, Microsoft knows the stakes are indeed high. And FireFox is becoming fiercer as it heightens its profile. There will be a Gran Paradiso, a 24-hour download record with FireFoz 3 set by Mozilla.

The micro-blogging site has been hit again and again by malware, the first was from a bored teen who wrote code that quickly spread all over the place, the newest was more sinister with exploit laden PDF files and exploits galore sent to click-hungry users who clicked on just about anything they can click on. Finally, some word of hope from the site’s management, they will start to roll out secure and verified accounts that might be their answer to their growing rank in the hacker hit lists of the world. This would take the place of their crazy attitude of suspending accounts they suspect are from impersonators or are infected by malware, taking control of everything the account contains as if they owned it all the time. Lawsuit after lawsuit has landed them in hot water and made them one of the biggest malware targets this day and age of the social net. continue reading »

Not quite, the new search engine may have some of the innovative concept of the cloud behind it, yet as with any other computer software, it’ll take time for the fruit to ripen (and knowing Microsoft, that’ll take a while). Microsoft has long been searching for an answer from the threat Google has been shadowing them with in the area of online advertising, a field totally ruled by the later search giant. They have tried on several occasions (heard they’re at it again) to get hold or control of Yahoo yet they have fallen short of their bullish tactics and failed to get at it fast. continue reading »
