Middle East Telecom Grows at a Rate of Knots

August 21, 2013 |

Convergence is all the rage across the Middle East and it is set to take off!

The widespread growth of the technology sector across the Middle East is starting to pay dividends for telecom providers. Technical operations directors of many leading Middle Eastern consortiums have been applying Western-style operations to the region. The results have been overwhelmingly positive, with convergence becoming a major money-spinner in countries like Saudi Arabia, Jordan, Egypt, Kuwait, Israel and others. Convergence is simply the bundling of Internet, television and telephone services via an xDSL or cable connection. This is typically done via a single network provider. The advent of bundling services dramatically reduces costs across multiple service sectors and provides a one stop service centre for related queries. The time and cost savings are substantial.

Highly Innovative Applications Improve Data Flow

The technological boom that is provided by convergence not only brings the region closer, but it also breaks … Read More

What to Look For When Hunting For a Web Development Company?

August 18, 2013 |

However large your company’s operation may be, it remains non-existent to the web surfers unless you have your internet presence in the form of a website. A website is essential because of the internet is now the largest platform for advertising. More than a billion visitors across the globe access the internet at every moment of the day. Therefore, this is the most effective way of reaching the new potential customers. Unless you have your online presence you would not be able to successfully market your products through the internet, which is very essential to survive the tough competition in this internet era.

Do Automated Sentiment Detection Programs Really Work?

August 14, 2013 |

If you’re running a small business, then you probably don’t have a problem keeping up with your Twitter account. Large companies, on the other hand, receive volumes of social media coverage. According to Burson-Marsteller, Fortune 100 companies are mentioned an average of 55,790 times per month on Twitter.

Marketing departments take a strong interest in measuring their brands’ “Twitter temperature,” so they turn to automated sentiment detection programs. Instead of reading through all of their tweets and mentions the way that a small business owner might do, a marketing professional may activate an automated sentiment detection program and look at a graph. That graph would indicate how many of those 55,790 tweets were positive and how many were negative. The tool would be particularly useful when the company rolled out a new promotion or product.

“Business intelligence,” which encompasses understanding brand sentiment on social media, has gotten so big that some universities offer degrees … Read More

The Middle East’s Burgeoning IT Industry

August 14, 2013 |

Over the course of the last few years, a growing number of IT companies have been cropping up across the Middle East and North Africa, with many hoping to take advantage of the rising demand for tech solutions, as well as the unparallelled support from governments and banks.

Whether it’s a fairly hassle-free loan from a local bank or a government initiative designed to remove any red tape for new businesses, many parts of the Middle East have created a fertile landscape for tech companies to thrive. A standout example of this is Dubai’s Internet City. Created by the government, this unique business park allows companies that focus on regional emerging markets to bypass many ownership and tax laws for a 50 year period.

As a result, several major tech companies, including Microsoft, IBM, HP and Nokia, have moved their regional headquarters to Dubai Internet City. Overseas companies such as these are thriving, thanks to … Read More

Get The Most Out Of Stock Photography

August 12, 2013 |

Whether you’re trying to create a clean, minimalist look for your website, or want a warm and welcoming feel, there’s no doubt that stock photography can help you achieve your goals. However, we’ve all seen those websites where it just doesn’t work. The colors jar, the images seem irrelevant, and it looks like someone pasted them in just for the heck of it. This is web design gone badly wrong, turning photographs from assets into liabilities.

However, if you take a little care, you can avoid the pitfalls and make stock photography really work for you. There are a number of simple questions to ask yourself, and a few things to avoid. For example, an image may look absolutely great, but if it’s already being used on 10,000 websites, then the chances are that people will spot this pretty quickly. While your website may look fine, it will quickly become apparent that you have … Read More

5 Most Common Problems Affecting Your PC

August 8, 2013 |

The PC has grown to become an indispensible feature in home and office life. PCs have arguably made us more efficient, effective workers, while they have no doubt opened access to information on a global scale for the first time. But, as most of us will have experienced, PCs can suffer from problems from time to time. This can be immensely frustrating for the user, especially when there is no obvious fix. Here are the most common problems that might affect your PC, and what you can do to help get your machine back on its feet with My Computer Works.

Slow Speed

A sluggish machine can be one of the most infuriating things to deal with. In our instant society, the thought of waiting even 3 seconds to process simple operational tasks on a PC is uncomfortable. The first sign of potential problems with many PCs is a loss of speed. Computers that … Read More

3D Printing Comes Of Age

July 31, 2013 |

If Gene Roddenberry is up there somewhere looking down on us, it’s a good bet that he’s wearing a wide smile. It’s amazing just how prophetic the original Star Trek is proving to be, foretelling advances that we’re starting to see within 50 years of the series, well in advance of the 23rd century when Star Trek takes place.

Perhaps the most obvious example is the communicator, which bears an uncanny resemblance to a flip-top mobile phone. Nowadays, our Android or iOS smartphones actually go far beyond anything that Star Trek envisioned. Of course, we can’t beam down to a strange planet and then call Scotty back in orbit on the Enterprise, but we can call just about anywhere on Earth.

There are many other examples. The Enterprise traveled the galaxy, seeking out new life and new civilizations, boldly going where no one had gone before. We may not be traveling the galaxy ourselves … Read More

Cellular vs. Satellite: Understanding the Differences

July 29, 2013 |

Almost everyone has a cell phone these days — from your little sister in elementary school all the way up to your grandmother. It’s hard to imagine life without these handheld devices, which allow us to do so much more than simply make phone calls.

In fact, today’s cell phones are so powerful and have so many capabilities that it’s difficult to imagine a situation when a cell phone won’t come in handy. And while it’s true that for the vast majority of the time, and in the vast majority of situations, a cell phone will allow you to stay in touch or get help when you need it, there are actually plenty of situations when a cell phone just won’t cut it. In those cases, you need a satellite phone if you’re going to make a connection.

A Vast Global Network

You might be thinking “A cell phone and a satellite phone are the … Read More

Data Storage: What Are Your Options?

July 25, 2013 |

Only 15 years ago, a good PC was lucky to provide a 3GB hard drive. Now, mobile phones have three times that amount as standard. While it may have been £25 for a 256MB flash drive in 2004, you can get 20 or 30 times the storage for the same price – and delivering higher speeds – from an even smaller piece of technology on your keyring. It’s not just because of advances in technology, either – it’s simple demand.

Over the last couple of decades, we’ve experienced a huge demand for more space. The explosion in popularity of the MP3 format in the late 90s led to huge music collections going digital, while the AVI and MPEG formats created a boom in video content. As technology gets greater – most recently, with the advent of HD – so does the need for storage. Now that most of us are “always on” – the internet, that … Read More
