Responsive Versus Adaptive Web Design and Why It’s Important

June 24, 2015 |

It’s easy to fall into the trap of thinking that a website is just a website and that all sites are pretty much the same. While that might once have been true, the Internet changes fast and in recent years the requirements for websites have changed with it.

More and more of us are accessing the web via mobile devices like smartphones and tablets. Indeed many people skip the desktop altogether and their only experience of the Internet is on mobile. The smaller screens of these devices mean that traditional websites don’t always display to their best advantage. If your site is to work in the era of mobile Internet it needs to be able to be able to display properly on any device.

Adapt or Respond?

To be effective in the mobile age a website needs to change to suit the device it’s being viewed … Read More

Storage Fueling A Positive Customer Experience

December 4, 2013 |

People don’t like waiting. You hear that all the time, and usually the speaker says our modern culture is the impetus for our lack of patience. What those people fail to realize, however, is that the sentiment of some new technology or culture shift destroying society’s ability to wait is a common refrain throughout history. Every advance that reduces travel time—steamships, trains and planes—is met with skepticism. How fast do people really need to travel? Nobody needs to be able to travel across the Atlantic Ocean in less than two months.

Technological advances don’t make people impatient; the existing lack of patience is what drives innovation. University researchers didn’t want to have to mail papers to one another anymore, so they created ARPANet, the precursor to the Internet.

The trend continues. People continue to want faster access to data, and they want to be able to network with people across the world instantly. … Read More

SSD versus HDD: What’s Best For Business?

July 30, 2013 |

The hard disk drive has ruled as the king of secondary storage since the 1960s, beating tape reels and punch cards. At the time, it was the latest and greatest storage technology out there, able to access information non-sequentially and, over time, reducing its form factor and increasing its storage density so much that it’s hard to imagine any other storage tech beating it. But that’s where solid state storage comes in. Faced with the increasing viability of solid state arrays, many businesses have to face the difficult decision of whether to ditch the hard drive in favor of solid state storage.

Hard Disks

The most obvious benefit of hard disks is their ability to store massive amounts of data. A single drive can now store up to 4 TB of information, while the largest consumer SSD is only one-quarter of that. The price of hard disk storage is incredibly low, especially when you consider … Read More

Measurable Marketing

April 22, 2013 |

Marketing has grown since the 1960s; the Internet has constructed a new wing — with rooms galore — on the mansion of effective marketing. However, it’s foolish for a business to engage in marketing efforts they can’t track. If you can’t see if something works — or if it’s more efficient than another method — how do you know if you’re wasting your time and money? If you can’t measure your ROI, switch up your methods. Marketing isn’t just about attracting people to your products; it’s about using your budget efficiently so you can have the biggest impact possible. Collect, organize and use the data you collect to benefit your marketing campaigns. Email marketing campaigns give you an unprecedented ability to sculpt, direct and evaluate marketing materials for a finely segmented audience; Pay-per-click advertising, on the other hand, lets you target a general audience — people searching for the type of product or service you … Read More

These websites help new clients find the company, allow the company to communicate directly with their consumer base and are a great form of advertising.

Cloud Practices Initiating Change

March 12, 2013 |

It’s no revelation that the cloud has changed the way businesses operate. Odds are you’ve heard the term “cloud computing” thrown around in blog posts, advertisements and even TV shows. Yet, when you sit around your office selling your small staff on this new technological advancement, definitions start to get a little cloudy. As more companies deliver their services over the Internet, it makes sense for small businesses to ditch their traditional business processes for more Web-oriented services.

Navigating the world of cloud services

Cloud services fall into one of three categories: infrastructure as a service, platform as a service or software as a service. The big idea, and real draw of cloud services is access. In the cloud you’re not paying for ownership, but rather the ability to access and use powerful computing services on a subscription basis. Here just a few of the most common types of cloud services that are changing the way … Read More

Backup Software for Hedge Funds

December 6, 2012 |

All businesses in this technology driven world are subject to the potential disaster of data loss. Organizations that work with other people’s money, like hedge funds and banks, have to be particularly guarded against cyber attacks.

Remember how easy it was for Bane to rip off the Gotham stock exchange in The Dark Knight Rises? That scenario isn’t too far removed from real life, minus the psychopathic masked assassin. Due to the nature of the money that hedge funds manage (pensions, university endowments etc.), they must be particularly mindful of potential attacks and data loss; in the hedge fund game one mistake could mean the loss of millions of dollars. As a result, hedge funds have had to move toward many diffuse and layered forms of digital security. Backup software is always a good idea for people who hold sensitive information, and an essential safeguard for organizations that work in the digital transfer of money.

The Role of … Read More

Make Sure Your Computer Is Protected from Viruses and Hackers

November 19, 2012 |

Have you ever had the displeasure of having your computer infected with a virus? I have, and it is not a fun experience. Here is what happened to me.

I grabbed my morning cup of coffee and turned on my computer just like I do every single morning. I took my first sip of my morning coffee and waited for my computer to spring to life. That first sip of morning coffee is always the best. One big whiff of that wonderful aroma and I was ready to face my computer, but the computer screen looked a little different this morning. Instead of the usual welcome screen, I was greeted with a big blue error screen. I took another sip of my coffee, and powered off my computer. I turned it back on and waited for it to boot up. I was greeted with the same blue error screen again. I repeated this same routine … Read More

Apple confers that aluminium scratching is normal

September 27, 2012 |

Reports have particularized the answer made to the query of a customer by Apple SVP of Marketing Phil Schiller. The query proposed the question that the side border gets scratched of black and then it was a slate iPhone 5, via an email received by 9to5Mac. For Schiller’s answer it’s difficult to comment it as unimpressive or an answer covering the scratching aluminium. Schiller apparently responded to concerns by pointing out that aluminum is naturally subject to scratches, and that minor chips over time are to be expected with the iPhone 5?s construction materials.

9to5Mac possesses the full email which was verified by the headers so that it may be conveyed that it was customary email by Apple. The texts in the email dragged forward read:

Any aluminum product may scratch or chip with use, exposing its natural silver color. That is normal.

As the survey speaks that aluminium is comparatively softer than glass, … Read More
