Health and Safety Software

September 9th, 2010 | Posted in Software

A pro-active health and safety system is an increasingly essential part and make-up of any modern day working environment.

With just one card, an abundance of information can be swiped. From clocking in and clocking out, overtime, vacations and managing the payroll, information can be instantly updated, retrieved and accessed centrally, by managers, payroll and health and safety. For site managers, administration time onsite can be reduced, where credentials of everyone entering a site can be checked from one of a number of handheld computers. But health and safety software is now much more than this; it is also about ensuring that all workers have the right set of skills to do each task they have been assigned.

Much of the health and safety software now in practice can issue instant site status reports, ranging from notifying that the site is fully functional and operational right through to any problems and obstacles that may exist within the workplace environment. Such systems can even stop employees before they work if they have foreseen any issues and errors in the working environment or within future procedures and processes.

In contrast to a more traditional system and approach health and safety software will also produce live up to date records simultaneously as they happen and not after the event.

The benefits of such an approach can provide a centralised system but with local reports, relevant and pertaining to various sectors and processes within the workplace environment or system.

No matter how cost effective and viable health and safety software can be, its effectiveness will always be subject to how well the solution is uniquely married to the workforce and the company itself. Adequate and comprehensive training of the new system is imperative to maximise its benefits and efficiencies to workers on the ground and managers in the office.

Java Programming

September 9th, 2010 | Posted in Software

Do you often play games on your mobile phones? Maybe you often ask, what programs and applications used to create these games? There are many types of programs that can be used to build a computer application, such as gaming, security system for a basic level, database systems, and much more. Some languages programming that can be used to create a fairly simple game such as “Java Language” program. This type of program as well as easy to apply, is also quite easy to be developed into some other applications, such as Java C+ and C++.

Use for gaming applications typically do not depend on the particular type of operating system, this is because the existing database on the program consists of several simple source code, so this kind of programming language can be used by them that still learning about this program, because some of this program based on source code applications. However, to further optimize the function of the Java program, it needs some additional knowledge to better understand and make modifications for this program, for example with the application “Turbo Pascal” which is a basic-level programming language.

If you want to try and learn to make a game with the application of “Java”, there are some steps you should know, including:

• Type of game you want to develop? What is included in the game type “animation effect” or the game kind of “three dimensional”. It is very important for you to start building these applications, because both types of these games require some source code that is different.
• What is the games platform you want to use, does require operating system support, such as “Windows”, or just need a simple application, such as “Notepad”. Both types of these applications will determine the type of game that will be produced later.

Both of these applications you must understand first before you begin to development of an application to learn for simple practices around the “Java Language”, although it looks easy and simple, but if those two things are not understood properly, chances are you will have difficulty in applying these application.


Pay-As-You-Go 4G From Clearwire

September 2nd, 2010 | Posted in Technology Information


Last Monday internet provider Clearwire announced that it would begin offering a pay-as-you-go 4G service for its customers. With the demand for faster and faster internet rising, and the amount of contractual services lowering, this is exactly what the new tech-savvy generation needs.

The new 4G service will be called Rover and will be available in all of Clearwire’s networks. Clearwire, being partially owned by Sprint-Nextel, is used to power the 4G WiMax network, and it is this network Rover will run off of.

Lately Clearwire has been in slump profit wise, losing millions of dollars this year alone. This new pay-as-you-go network will hopefully rekindle some profits for the flagging company, as well as making internet accessible for those who don’t want to get tangled up in a contract.

Price wise Rover seems to be decent. It will connect to Clearwire’s network using either a “Stick” or a “Puck”. The Stick will connect directly to the computer and provide access and as its name suggests, is a USB modem. The Stick will retail for $100. The Puck provides access for up to eight mobile devices and costs $150 dollars, which is an incredible deal for fifty dollars more, and also allows multiple laptops or other mobile devices to be online simultaneously. Users can choose to pay by the day, by the week, or by the month. Prices will be $5 for a day, $20 dollars for a week, or $50 dollars for a month.

With a reasonable price for their new 4G network Clearwire can hope to recoup its recent losses. More good news for the company is that it is currently the only service provider offering 4G. Other internet heavyweights will soon enter into the game, but Clearwire may be able to retain popularity with its contract-free Rover.

Broadband made a legal right for Finnish citizens

August 18th, 2010 | Posted in Technology Information


Broadband made a legal right for Finnish citizens.
Let us be honest, how many of us are reading this article from our neighbors wifi? I, for one, am not, but that may or may not be because I’m the only one with internet in the building. The ethical argument for using another person’s wireless internet is akin to the argument about virtual property. Have we reached an age where a person can not only own the rights to something tangible, but something completely invisible as well? It is almost considered ignorant to go without internet anymore, but with bills for electric, cable, water, gas, and everything else piling up, it is becoming more and more difficult to add another forty dollars or so to our monthly spending. With social networking becoming more popular than postal mail, maybe the US should take a hint from Finland, and their new policy that internet should be a legal right to each and every person.
In October 2009 promises were being made by Finland’s communication officials that by 2010 everyone would have broadband internet of at least 1Mbit/s, and by 2015 amping it up to 100Mbit/s. Finland makes this possible using ADSL (Asymmetric Digital Subscriber Line). As of July 2010 this promise came to fruition, and all of Finland had the option to be connected to the web. Even before this breakthrough in communication, certain cities in Finland, such as Oulu, were already offering city-wide internet access. Finland’s willingness to offer such a commodity for no cost to its general public may seem startling, but when one looks at the benefits to free internet, it is understandable why this step was taken.
According to Reuters, four out of five people believe that internet access is a fundamental right. For the older population this might seem hard to believe, since the internet has only become extremely popular in the last decade. Internet access has become such a crucial part of our everyday lives that it would be impossible for some businesses to function without it. In fact, some businesses are completely internet based, with nary a cubicle in sight. More and more people would benefit from open access internet, even to the point where it would open up jobs for people unable to leave their homes.
America’s attempts to jump start its economy are everywhere. New highways being built, new government-run jobs opening up, the evidence is obvious that drastic steps are being taken to put money back into the pockets of American citizens in hopes that said citizens will spend the money. By offering nationwide broadband access, online shopping would be available to every single citizen, not just the technically savvy. The factory worker that gets off work at 3:00am with a hole in his steel toed boots could jump on his computer, as basic as it might be, and order a new pair for delivery. No more worrying about waking up five hours early to get to the shoe store. The full time Mom could order all of her Christmas presents from home without having to dress and wash her numerous offspring. The possibilities are endless. For wireless intenet on the go consider an AirCard rental from Rentacomputer.com.

Technology Meets Marketing Reports

August 15th, 2010 | Posted in Information Technology

Until a few years ago any marketing presentation or a report had to be read or viewed in print medium. But now with visual media, we have videos that can engage the viewer’s attention and convey information and messages very well keeping the viewer’s engaged. If you are wondering why everyone loves watching videos, it is because both our eyes and ears are engaged and it makes more sense to watch and listen to what is being said. But marketers watch out, if your marketing video is of 30 minutes or more, then we doubt if anyone would be interested in watching it completely.

Now days all types of trainings are imparted through videos and most often trainings imparted through videos are comprehended better than other modes.

Whether the video is short or long one can decide only at the end of watching the entire video if it was worth it. But then generally videos which run more than 3 to 5 minutes tend to bore the viewers and will not be able to hold their attention for long. The viewer’s maximum attention span would be around 5 minutes or a little longer.

Keeping in mind the necessity to engage the viewers and make it more interesting many presenters also hand out the print outs of PDF version or PPT version of the video that is being shown. Viewers are now able to make their notes and refer to the paper print out while watching the video and will be better informed as well as involved in the presentation.

Many times viewers are not able to view the videos that you send them for sometimes they may not be able to download the file for it is too big and takes too long or some technical problem in their system might make it impossible for them to download. This defeats the purpose totally.

It makes sense to give a print out of the video to the viewer while waiting for him to download and see the video. With the print out the viewer is likely to go through immediately and be interested in seeing the video for he knows what to expect and has questions already forming in his mind which the video can answer for him.

You have two options on hosting your videos. One is to list your video in the video directory sites. The other option is to have SEO in text for the search engines including Google still judges content according to text and place them accordingly in the SRPs.

Many people list their videotext files into other directories too and ensure that the text shows up first followed by the video. It makes sense to combine text and use it in combination with your video.


Protecting Your MP3 Player

August 15th, 2010 | Posted in Information Technology

When you buy a brand new mp3 player or cell phone, there are a few things that you need to buy along with it to make sure that you keep it in the best possible shape that it can be in for a long period of time. Phones and technological gadgets are not cheap these days and there are many things that can happen that will destroy your new toys. Fortunately, there are iPod repair services and iPhone repair services available to help you out when you need to get something fixed but do not want to deal with the hassle of going through the store where you purchased it from.

Whether you drop your new phone or accidentally drop it in the toilet or sink, it never ends up good. There is not really anything you can buy to protect your phone from water damage so be careful when you are in a bathroom by not keeping it in your pockets. If you can, keep it in your purse or set it down. There are ways to protect in from drops, however. There used to be one kind of case for all phones because when phones first came out, they were all the same. They were a soft layer of leather that went over your phone. Now, cases are hard plastic or silicone and do a much better job of protecting your phone.

Screen protectors are also a good item to buy. They are not very expensive and can be purchased in the store that you bought your phone or mp3 player. Since most phones these days are touch screen and cases only cover certain parts of your phone and not the screen, it is a good idea to have something protecting that part so that it does not get scratched up. What is that point of having a phone if you cannot see what you are doing on it?

There are not always issues with just the look of the phone. If you have a smart phone or a phone that can use the internet, which is pretty much every phone out there now, it is best to have a software downloaded that can keep the viruses away, because that can happen and your phone would be useless at that point. If your phone starts acting weird, check to make sure there are no viruses and if it starts getting slow, you may need to delete some downloads if you have too many to give your phone more memory space.

Fortunately, if something goes wrong with your phone, it is not the end of the world. It is not fun to deal with because they are expensive and can be expensive to fix, but there are people out there who will help you fix the problem and even though it might take a few dollars out of your account, you will be on your way with a new phone and the best part of it all is you will know next time what to do to protect your phone so that it does not happen again.


Are iPad Users Snobs?

August 13th, 2010 | Posted in Technology Information

Are iPad Users Snobs

This probably doesn’t come as a surprise to many people but iPad users are “selfish elites.” At least, that’s what a new study says. The research comes from MyType, a consumer research firm. They surveyed 20,000 people between March and May to get a “psychological profile” of iPad owners. The result? “Selfish elites.”

MyType found that iPad owners tend to be up to six times more “wealthy, sophisticated, highly educated, and disproportionately interested in business and finance” compared to non-owners. iPad owners also tend to be less than kind or altruistic. For the most part, they fell into the 30-50 age range.

However, a whopping 96% of those likely to criticize iPads don’t even own the device. Those people have been deemed “independent geeks” by the company. MyType’s Tim Koelkebeck said in an interview with Wired.com that this group earned its name by being “self-directed young people who look down on conformity and are interested in video games, computers, electronics, science and the internet.”

MyType lists a number of reasons as to why the iPad owners could be, well, the way they are. Speculation includes the high price tag of the device and the desire to have more gadgets on which to do more work for the workaholic types. As a matter of fact, when the iPad was released, there seemed to be mixed opinions amongst the people who wondered why the device was even necessary versus the people who saw it as a cool new way to stay connected.

As for the “independent geeks” or critics of the device, speculation suggests they are one trip to the Apple Store away from praising the iPad. Koelkebeck says that bashing it is an “identity statement.” He goes on to say of the critics, “As a mainstream, closed-platform device whose major claim to fame is ease of use and sex appeal, the iPad is everything that they are not.”

That’s pretty harsh, but anyone who knows anything about computers, the tech world, or modern pop culture knows that hating Apple products is simply a way of life for some people. However, there are also those people out there who would probably buy Apple garbage bags if they were to go on sale at the Apple Store.

Just how scientific is this research? Well, obviously, calling someone a “selfish elite” or an “independent geek” is pretty subjective. However, MyType did make a serious effort to get the American public’s opinion of the iPad. You can read more about how they conducted their research and the reasoning behind it at MyType.com/blog.
