From geo-tagging, where digital pictures were loaded with locational data from an attached GPS receiver to today’s geo-caching which is a way of reminding you where you wrote note, took a picture or did something online while on the move, the file sharing service Drop.io allows geocoding of all your files that have been uploaded to their system and that’s just the beginning with more features to come. You not only get to share content with the world, you also get to access your content, quickly through an abbreviated URL making it available anytime and every time as long as you have an internet connection. Like dropping candy for Hansel and Gretel to pick-up, you gain the ability to browse a map representing a specific area, move your mouse around and find stuff (files, notes, pictures or just about anything you deem fit to upload to their servers).

Hidden in the numbers is an indication that Internet Explorer 7 is having trouble finding traction as companies are sticking with the 6-year-old Internet Explorer 6. Microsoft released IE7 in October 2006, but 55.2% of companies still used IE6 as of December 2007. Only 23.4% of companies used IE7, barely outpacing the growth and use of Firefox. Firefox 2.0, also released in October 2006, “almost completely replaced” the previous version of Firefox, version 1.5.
That result, along with Firefox’s growth despite the fact that “Mozilla continues to expend little energy on wooing IT managers to formally adopt Firefox,” as the report notes, could indicate that employees rather than IT managers are driving Firefox adoption.

Creativity is a type of learning process where the teacher and pupil are located in the same individual – ARTHUR KOESTLER.
Often in life we ignore real creativity Innovation and creative thinking from the earliest memories of a child as we are commonly taught to ‘follow’ other children and then adults like tin soldiers into adulthood. Who ever taught you to think and listen within? Or that real creativity Innovation – does not come from outside of our being. In fact, we are born within of unlimited creativity and innovation if only we would learn the art of listening, believing and journeying within.
Some of the greatest architects, sculptors, artists, businessmen, businesswomen, doctors, celebrities male and female would never have effectively contributed to society had they never listened, journeyed and believed within. I believe we are living in a technological world where creative ideas and real creativity innovation is the principle ruling universal force.
By this I mean the Internet and modern day inventions is now allowing the world of people to design, write, create and innovate without limit. We cannot produce enough hours in the day to keep up or satisfy the demand’s of the world. Even now the world competes with each and every inhabitant mind against mind and innovation against innovation directly over the World Wide Web.
This is perhaps how thing’s always were and has now come “Full Circle” back to our origin within. No longer can education claim to have fashioned anything as we see in the new modern world of technology most things are being created out of spirit to spirit, passion and innate wisdom.
In Feb 2010, the BBC reported that Peter Horrocks the new director has ordered Journalists to use Social Media. He describes modern-day technology as: “This isn’t just a kind of fad from someone who’s an enthusiast of technology. I’m afraid you’re not doing your job if you can’t do those things. It’s not discretionary”, he is quoted as saying in the BBC in-house weekly Ariel.” [Source: Guardian.Co.UK]
WHEN WAS THE LAST TIME YOU LISTENED TO YOU?
What most people do not realize and will struggle to make the shift of what was into what is now being the old industrial, manufacturing world into the new modern technological, services world. All this adds up to one thing you INNOVATE, CREATE OR FADE into oblivion. No, this does not necessarily mean you have to relocate, do a degree or heavily invest. It could just be that you start by listening within, meditating, take a sabbatical and get in touch with YOU for a change – within. YOU will be amazed of the limitless wisdom one carries within that is just waiting to instruct you how to be the next MySpace, YouTube or Facebook, now worth an estimated 1 billion USD.
Taking time out to listen to only you is the seat of not only universal wisdom, innovation and creation but your potential future. Technology now gives everyone around the world an even playing-field. Journalists have all been dethroned from what once was a specialist field has now become a global mom and pop field because everyone now can write, type and press send or submit. Of course, there is still novice and professional but with millions of people online you may receive as much if not more views or licks than most journalists.
The bottom line is fear not. Take the time to listen to your creative ideas, then innovate and create your world and passion and watch life uplift, bless and empower you beyond your wildest dreams online or offline.

In considering how to extend the Web with new technologies, it is instructive to compare Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) with frames. CSS is an elegantly designed extension, whereas frames suck, as I have said many times CSS is backward compatibleto the extent that viewing a style-enhanced site with an older browser causes no problems at all. Of course, the user doesn’t see the stylistic enhancements made possible by CSS (e.g., multiple fonts and indented margins), but the text of the page will be readable and will be presented in a reasonable default style (of course, the extent to which you deem the default presentation reasonable depends on your assessment of the quality of typography in mainstream browsers: admittedly rather poor). In contrast, a page designed with frames is useless for a user with an old browser.CSS isorthogonal to other featuresin Web browsing. When multiple style sheets become supported in future releases of the mainstream browsers, users might want to learn the command to switch between styles, but they won’t have to.

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.
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.
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.

We all need to back up our files from our personal computers. It is an important practice that users must observe. Yet it is always often taken for granted. When we fail to do so, we lose important documents, photos, videos and contacts and so much more. Sad to say hard drives are not always safe to back your files up. It has a life cycle. Given around 8-10 years. Considering that it doesn’t bog down due to power surge. You may opt to use file recovery applications. But these are often than not, time consuming.The best way is to prevent it from happening rather than looking for softwares to retrieve your lost files. So as a rule of thumb, we are suggested to back up our files every time you have a new and important file to keep.
Some important data to back up are:
- Family photos
- Address book
- Work files and folders
There might be files you want to save. Its really up to you which is important to keep in case your hard drive fails. You should go through your computer and think about any information you would not want to lose if your hard drive should fail.

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.

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.
