Today, we are in a world wherein any business requires a website. We could not have imagined such a scenario couple of decades back. In fact, businesses today cannot even afford to have a few minutes of downtime for their customers. It is therefore mission critical to choose the right web hosting service and the right web hosting provider, if you want to have a successful business.
The Information Technology Cloud has offered freedom to Software users to select providers easily. The pay as you go pricing, the low entry and exit barriers often motivate customers to act impulsively while taking a decision, which is often like “flirting without commitments” rather than planning a “long term marriage with your partner”.
“Tell me and I will forget, show me and I may remember, involve me and I will understand” – these are great words of wisdom from Confucius. While I was trying to learn Internet of Things, I felt initially that Internet of Things (IoT) as a concept is difficult to understand, unless you really use and perceive it. It is the buzzword though, and is expected to be the “in” thing in the near future. For instance, take the definition of Internet of Things “The Internet of Things (IoT) is a scenario in which objects, animals or people are provided with unique identifiers and the ability to transfer data over a network without requiring human-to-human or human-to-computer interaction.” Isn’t it intriguing or confusing?
“All children have the right to justice”, “enough”, or “acknowledge CSA” – these were some of the words of protests as Pakistani rights activities staged a protest against CSA (Child Sex Abuse) on 10-Aug-15. A few days back, the Indian Government banned 857 adult sites, and after a public outcry against the rights for freedom of expression granted by the Indian Constitution, the Indian Government was forced to revert the same, but applying the ban to only those sites promoting child pornography.
With the dawn of a new, imminent era brought by the Internet, it was clear to many that the Cold War was only going to continue. However, while not as serious nowadays, the Cold War is still a thing but the game has changed. While a few decades back, governments of the world used to throw spies around to gather information, now they can gather all they want from their homes, with a few clicks. Of course, spies still exist today, but I bet they’re a bit jealous on what skilled hackers can do.
The only thing in the world that can make you rich overnight – or get you fired for some personal comment on your Facebook page. Social media is infamous for its power to promote or punish. We all like to keep in touch with our friends. Whether boasting about that wild weekend party, or how you can’t believe your boss handled a situation at work. We share the good, the bad, and the ugly. But there’s a difference between sharing a story over a barbecue and sharing it online.
Most legitimate web sites don’t use the types of ads that we all know and hate. Animated ads with loud sounds and distracting motions, Pop-ups/unders, and other sorts of intrusive advertising that interrupt people are the reason many have turned to ad blocking extensions. Ads that are so intrusive that they actually disrupt the intended use of a website don’t help anyone. Often the types of sites that use intrusive and or misleading ads of a questionable nature to begin with.
