Windows VPS Hosting – Gold Mine For Software Developers

Posted By Faye



The Windows VPS hosting solutions have made it much easier for website and software developers alike. These plans have made it easier in the areas of cost effectiveness, application installation and server control. There are very few technical differences between a virtual server and a dedicated server, while there is a large difference in price. VPS hosting solutions have become the most popular hosting solution in recent times because of these reasons.

Cost Effectiveness

As stated before, today’s virtual servers offer almost all of the benefits that dedicated servers do. You must purchase a physical system to run your websites on a dedicated server, whereas there is no need for physical equipment with a virtual private server. Webmasters and software developers prefer virtual servers because the dedicated server systems are expensive to buy. They are still able to customize their applications because virtual servers allow them to access any previously stored computer resources.

Convenience

Having a Windows VPS hosting account makes the whole server process a lot more convenient. Depending on the host you choose, your virtual server can be managed and closely watching by the host company. Most companies offer burstable RAM, which makes it more convenient for webmasters and software developers to complete smaller tasks. The resource capacity on your server will be managed by your host and you will be notified if you need to upgrade to a higher usage account.

Unlimited Program Usage

Many developers use different programs to create software. A shared server puts limits on the applications that can be used on the server. On the other hand, any application (as long as it is legal) is allowed to be used with a Windows VPS hosting account. If need be, developers can even combine different applications on the server. This flexibility gives developers and webmasters so much more leeway in their creations. Open source applications are another perk of Windows VPS hosting. These applications are offered for free, as opposed to high costing proprietary applications.

Are Driveless Cars A Bad or Good Idea

Are you ready for self driving cars? A car that park itself, sense other objects, cars and pedestrians? Yes you read it right, a driverless car where you as a usual driver can now relax and have more time to read book, browse your laptop without having to worry about navigating through traffic after a long day at work! This might sound like a science fiction, but did you know that these kinds of cars are being tested now? Google, Ford and various car manufacturers are already testing it. Expert engineers at Volvo believe it could happen within ten years from now.

The main goal of this new technology is to save fuel, lessen the mental stress and most importantly, reduce the number of traffic deaths and crashes, which appears to be the high cause of death rate in many countries like USA. The car could also connect to a wireless internet and a gps to exactly know where it should be going. Although this seems to be pleasing in the ears, this new technology still brings us up few issues that we should be aware of, including higher cost to the consumer, the need for more advanced infrastructure, the safety and hacking concern and the law that will eventually govern autonomous cars. Let’s go on these issues one by one.

• COST. Definitely, autonomous cars or driverless cars will cost consumer at least three thousand dollars more than the average cars price, and not all can afford to spend extra amount of money despite the fact that many people are enticed in driving such a vehicle. Auto manufacturers are more likely to appeal to more buyers if they are able to keep costs down, which is merely impossible.
• INFRASTRATURE. The infrastructure does not have enough support for autonomous cars. In addition to designing sensor systems that can detect other vehicles and objects they will also need to come up with a universal system that will enable cars to communicate with one another. This may prove to be an issue if many of the cars on the road will remain traditional cars. In addition to sensing other vehicles, cars will also need to be able to interpret traffic lights, signs and guard rails.
• SAFETY. If autonomous cars will depend on computers, hacking and viruses could be a possible issue. Therefore, we could not really say that using the driverless cars is safe enough.
• LAWS. We might be wondering now about what sort of laws will rule driverless cars. For example, a car that ran a red light? Who will be responsible for it? Will it be the driver of the car if the car is driving itself? Unfortunately, the government and some politicians are still refusing to even acknowledge such issue.

There is still so much work to be done. Everyone will surely have its own opinion about whether driverless cars are a good or bad idea. Would it really solve more problems than it would create? A question that, I think, time could only answer.

Tech Talks: Books vs. E-Readers

A lot of people right now are happily getting their reading done not with paper but with the innovation of digital screens. On the other hand, the purists scoff at digital pages and are sticking to their crinkly paper pages. Just what are the big differences between these two types of technologies?

First off, both types of technologies offer the pleasure of reading anytime and anywhere. You can take a book to the beach, bathtub, or subway just as much as you can take your e-reader with you.

An e-reader can store more than one title in itself – heck, you can choose to fill your e-reader with hundred of books to max capacity if you wish it. Books, however, can only be brought around as much as your bag will allow. There are some titles that have provocative covers that some folks may not may feel too nervous about reading in public. However, an e-reader will let you read any title as discreetly as possible. On the other hand, a paper book is something physical that you can hand to anyone. An e-book needs a medium and another electronic device to pass on the book.

When the World Wide Web begun more than years ago, a lot has changed. Even the Web itself has changed in so many ways. This innovation in web technology makes our communication a lot more easier. To give you an idea, here’s some of the most popular Web tech innovation that had really change our lives for the better.

Web Browser
Web browser is undeniably one of the most vital part of the entire internet experience, and without this, yur internet experience would surely be dull and boring. Among the popular web browser today includes Microsoft Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, Apple’s Safari and the newest entrant, Google Chrome. All these browser allow us to retrieve and get information from the Web.

Search Engines
Of course, being able to see and interact with Web pages is only useful if you can find them. That’s where search engines come in. You probably forgot the first search engines such as Archie, Veronica, and Jughead. Today’s most prominent search engine on the Internet is Google.

VoIP
Voice over Internet or mostly known as VoIP is a technology where you can be able to communicate with other people around the world using IP networks like the internet. One of the best example is the Skype. This application allows its over 520 million user to make a free call or make a video conferencing with no cost or with a very cheap price.

RSS
Really Simple Syndication (RSS), is another web innovation that let Web sites push updates — such as new blog posts or news articles — directly to a user, who can read those updates using a special RSS feed reader.

E-commerce
Forget the traditional method of buying your favorite personal items, Electronic commerce, or e-commerce, has indeed changed how we buy things. But aside from buying your favorite stuff, one of those industries in which e-commerce really shines is travel. Now you can book airline flights, hotel accommodation or car rental agencies with just a few click of your fingertips.

Web innovations had definitely improved our life in many aspects. Even learning any language can now be possible in just one click – I’m planning to learn Thai any day now. Yes! It is! Name it and anything you can imagine can be provided by the newly and modern web technologies.

Facebook Games

medium_2812431296Facebook games have long been considered one of the biggest time wasters on the Internet today. Games such as Farmville and Cityville have now become synonymous to Facebook itself, and has raked in billions for both Mark Zuckerberg and Zynga. What makes these games unique compared to other online gaming outfits is that there are certain challenges that require friends to achieve, bolstering the social aspect further.

However, some game formats have become tired horses for the more discerning gamers out there. The MUD-“click to do action” types of games have had their day, but more and more gamers now feel there should be something more to the experience. Micro- and macro-management games such as Farmville and Cityville have spawned a number of other similar games, but gamers have also tired of this style – too many clicks with too little rewards. It’s a good thing that more innovative game creators have come up with their own new flavor of games to spark interest in gamers and keep them playing on Facebook.

Web 2.0 – Ooh, shiny.

Posted By Jonette

Date: December 23rd, 2012

Ever since the dawn of Web 2.0, websites the Internet over have become shinier, glossier, and more colorful. Gone are the days of drab websites, boring frames, and text that just sucks the life out of whatever content you post. Now, fontssmall_462282405, resolutions, and design matter just as much as the pictures and articles on the website. Now, eye-catching and elegant photo slideshows and presentations are possible. (Hello, Photosnack and Prezi!) Blogs and websites are now more iconic, carrying a defining look, logo and color scheme that is recognizable anywhere. The web has now become more visual than ever.

However, it can be also very easy to get carried away with all the shiny add-ons. Some websites, end up having too many visual bells and whistles for them to make sense, and navigation can become confusing and discouraging for first –time users. Too much design can result in bad design. Simplicity is often key to attaining true elegance, even on the Internet.
