The best new features in window 8

Features in window 8Window 8 has been creating a lot of buzz everywhere in recent times. The new operating system comes with new exciting features that makes it a must have for most computer savvy persons. This new windows version is expected to perform amazingly better compared to other versions already in the market owing to these improved features. One of these new and great features is the new tile start screen that will wow its users. A tile is a typical program shortcut that is displayed at the system home screen. Essentially, the tile is actually a small program, rectangular in shape just like other window icons. Compared to traditional icons, the tile in this new window version has some enhancements that make using the windows a great experience.

The Tile is not just live but interactive at the same time. Different types of information are displayed on the tile by programs like current status and notifications. So, you even don’t have to open a given program to receive notifications and associated details as information is instantly displayed for you to act on it. This is actually one of the new and best features that Microsoft has stated that it will be available in window 8. Another feature is the JavaScript and HTML 5 based windows applications. When compared to the recent versions, this will be a significant change in this version as these two apps will be used as native programming languages for the system. The HTML app will work amazingly well with the introduced new UI model. In fact, Microsoft has hinted that their own proprietary technologies suck as Silverlight, WPF and .NET will actually be supported by the new version although it is not yet clear whether it will be able to enjoy the advantage of Tile based and new touch UI.

Basically, window 8 is actually a touch friendly and centric operating system that everyone will love to use. This is essentially a notable improvement considering the history of windows. Its touch centric nature basically means that development of applications in the system is going to be different as new apps are expected to have larger buttons, controls and icons that will facilitate easy touch operation. By use of your fingers, you will be able to move, slide and reposition the icons. Actually, the developers have said that this new version will borrow largely from mobile operating system.

The best news with window 8 is that it will actually run on any device. This operation system hopes to reduce the gap between laptops, desktops, slates, tablets and phones. You can use the OS on different devices such as SoS chips and x86 processors. The new window will incorporate all the features needed for easy operation and navigation of different kinds of devices. For instance, the touch based operations applicable in tablets can be used in the system as well as use of keyboard/mouse with your tablet. With such and many other hidden features, there is no doubt that windows 8 is the next big thing in the world of computer operating systems.

Top Laptops for the Autumn

Laptop

Laptop

In recent years the price of laptops has fallen drastically whilst the technology inside of them has doubled or tripled in speed and durability. No longer is it the case that a cheap laptop will automatically break just after the warrantee has broken and with stiff competition in the market, there are some great laptop deals to be found out there from the likes of Currys.

But with so many models to choose from, which laptop to pick? Well, here are three different ones that are currently some of the most popular out there.

Samsung RV520
Samsung are a big name in the tech world but are only just starting to challenge the main manufacturers when it comes to their own products. The RV520 is currently the most popular laptop out there because it’s durable, comes in at a good entry level price of around £350 and has a lot of solid hardware encased in the relatively small frame.

As far as relatively cheap laptops go, it’s hard to find a fault with the Samsung, aside, perhaps from the fact that it’s a little on the heavy side. The 15.6” screen is quality, the processor is fast and there’s more than enough RAM and Memory to keep you occupied for just about anything (apart from playing expensive games, perhaps). A great pick for someone looking to get something solid and durable.

Acer Aspire
Acer’s Aspire range has been doing good business for a couple of years now and their latest offerings are impressive. Coming in at roughly the same price as the Samsung, the Aspire 5733 is a little lighter, a little quicker, and a little bit more powerful, in fact, as far as hardware goes it’s a little bit better in most departments (apart from, maybe, the processor).

Where is falls back is that it’s not as aesthetic, and it’s not quite as flexible as the Samsung (in terms of picking how your laptop looks, not in terms of how well it bends). Still, all in all, another strong candidate.

Macbook Pro
For roughly three times the price you can knock all of those other laptops out of the park with the latest 13” Macbook Pro. There is nothing about this computer (apart from the price) that doesn’t stand out from the competitors, from processing power, to battery power, to weight, and particularly the amazing screen, the Macbook Pro is really quite exceptional.

If there is a drawback it’s that Mac’s are a little less flexible, and less easy to fix when they go wrong, but if you’re buying a new laptop, you shouldn’t have to worry about that for two or three years. Access to the App Store is a great added bonus of any Mac, and if you’re into design, this is the one of you. Better get saving!

 

Is technology really for good of mankind!

technology

Technology

Technological advances have a direct impact on humans and also it strongly affects the ability to control and adapt to the environment. The technology came into existence when natural resources were used as simple tools. And since then it advancing and is still an ongoing process. Tools developed, fire was produced, wheel was developed and today there countless number of things that technology has given to the mankind. From telephone to internet, or cart to car, technology has changed our lives completely. There’s no field where technology has not reached; from miles below the earth surface to miles beyond the earth surface technology has reached everywhere.

Technology has taken over the globe and each one us. Be it information, food, building, textile, there is perhaps no field that is untouched. Technology has reached each and every sphere and is strongly contributing in each of ours live. It makes our life convenient. In everything we do today, we cannot imagine our lives without technology. That is why it is said we are no less than the robots of time and science. Time makes us to stay in pace with the growing technology whereas technology has made us addicted to it.

Technology helps in advancement of a society and thereby a nation. From petrol to nuclear stations, more the technology, developed a country will be. Technological advancement makes a nation strong and prosperous. A country can be self sufficient and powerful only if it is technologically advanced. Every nation is finding ways to become self-sufficient and advanced and so do the nation. There exists a lot of competition today which if positive gives sweet fruits but negative side can make the nation or a person bad to worse. Every country dreams to expertise to conceptualize the facts of science and use it in productive way.

The present scenario is that it is not possible to even imagine our lives without technology. Man and machines which were used to two different words are no more separate. Instead in today’s world it would not be wrong to say that man is no less than a machine and it cannot be denied that man has become a puppet of science. However the prevailing condition today leaves us at no option but to give our lives in the hand of science.

No doubt technology has given millions and trillions of gifts, but it is somewhere felt that technology is a bane. This is because; as a very common example of introduction of machines explains the effect of technology where manual work is completely vanished and everything is automated. Life span is reduced as people become more prone to diseases with aging. Moreover directly or indirectly technology has given rise to hundreds of evils like wars, hatred, ecological imbalance, frequent natural disasters, competency, reduced life expectancy, crime, corruption and many more. Keeping this fact in mind, this is learnt that technology is a boon but giving everything in the hands of science is not wise. It is rightly said let nature do its own things and we mind our own business.

All about SOCKS list and proxy list

SOCKS is an internet protocol. The function performed by SOCKS is to route network packets between a client and a server via a proxy server. This protocol was developed by David Koblas who was a system administrator at MIPS Computer Systems. SOCKS5 has an additional feature of providing authentication so that only an authorized user can access a server. If you wish to find a complete SOCKS list then you just have to browse the internet for finding it. The use of SOCKS is to act a circumvention tool which allows one to bypass Internet filtering which provides access to content that is blocked by government, workplaces and educational institutions. SOCKS5 is mainly used to allow the web browsers to tunnel into any local proxy server securely. This is done by allowing the local computer to tunnel through a remote SSH server.

Proxy List

You can use any search engine for finding a socks list. Once you search for related links, you will be provided with a number of websites links where you can found a complete list of SOCKS servers. There is option to either buy a list of SOCKS servers or you can avail a SOCKS list for free also. SOCKS list is easy to find and from these SOCKS lists you can choose any SOCKS server to meet your requirements. SOCKS proxy can be downloaded from the internet. You will have to make the payment online to purchase a SOCKS proxy. Some SOCKS proxy servers and SOCKS list are also available for free on the internet and can be downloaded without any payment.

Proxy lists are a list of open proxy servers (HTTP/SOCKS) that are available on one single website. The proxy list includes the IP address of those computers which host open proxy servers. Open proxy servers can be defined as those servers which are openly available to everyone. A proxy server is an intermediate server between a client and some other server from which the client is seeking some information. The client might be seeking information like some file, some connection or some webpage from the server.

A proxy server can be used to keep a system anonymous. This is usually done for security purposes. Proxy servers also help in speeding up the access to some specified resource. One can also bypass some security control using proxy servers. To protect data against leakage (in case of important information and data) proxy servers can be used to access any content that is unbound. For finding a proxy list you can search for it on the internet. A number of links will be provided to you for finding proxy list. Proxy list are commonly divided on the basis of various protocols that are being used in the servers. From the proxy lists you can find a proxy server for your use. Then you can download this proxy server from the internet. Proxy list present before you the complete list of proxy servers so that you can know the proxy servers that are available.

Expert Opinion on Biggest Upcoming Changes to UK Broadband

Internet is a magic substance helping to make the world a smaller place. It has helped contact between several thousand miles easy and cheap. Communication has become extremely easy, this as a result has increased productivity and efficiency. Therefore countries which are lacking behind n this field will automatically be lagging behind in business, communication etc. Third world countries are making a great shift towards fiber optics thus a first world country should be much forward in this arena.

However, the most amazing information is that a first world country like England has quite a few lacking in the field of internet. A great percentage of the population of UK still does not have access to internet at their home. A large parentage of the elderly doesn’t know how to use the internet. Surprisingly compared to other countries the speed of UK’s internet is slow. This cannot be the situation of a first world country and thus the government is taking steps to change the situation for the better.

Huge fiber optic roll out is underway in England to tackle the situation of slow speed. The speed is expected to become 50 to 60 percentage increased.  By 2013 UK has decided to provide basic broadband coverage to al its citizens. UK is also committed to provide a 30Mbps broadband by 2020 against the current average speed of 6.4 mbps.

Another project is currently underway called the ADSL2+. It is said to have more and immediate effect on the speed. These speeds however can be hampered with electromagnetic disturbance and would depend on how far away people are away from the central exchange. It’s a variant of the existing DSL and every exchange is due to be enabled with ADSL by the end of this year.

Currently UK has a heavy reliance on internet broadband, especially in the sector of business and financial transactions. It is believed that this kind of improvement in the broadband will have a great positive effect on the income generation ability of the nation. The government has thus taken serious decision to improvise the current broadband situation of the country.

It can be said in the end that it is never too late to improve. Therefore the current decision to increase the broadband speed to make it at par with other first world countries is a positive step taken by the government. Increase in business and financial transaction would mean a better economy for the country and a positive balance of payment account. Keeping all this in the mind the government has decided to improvise on the situation as soon as possible.

Domain Name Registration

Domain name registration
To many people, the process of starting a website, or operating a page online, is a completely foreign concept. This is part of the reason that social websites such as Facebook, Myspace, or any kind of blog host are so appealing to such a huge range of people. These sites allow absolutely anybody to painlessly get their own words onto the Internet, and at times some bloggers and Facebook users probably even feel like they’re running their own web sites. However, for people wishing to get more serious about their Internet endeavors, or for anyone looking to put a business online for the first time, it is important to look into how people go about setting up professional web sites.

The first step, naturally, in setting up a website, is to decide what you want your site to be called, and then to find out if that name is available or possible. Perhaps the easiest way to set about doing this is to plug in a Google search for register domain name, which will turn up various pieces of advice, as well as links to the websites of companies designed to assist you with this task, such as Network Solutions. Such websites can make the process of registering a domain name relatively painless, as they include simple searches that tell you first if your desired domain name is available, and, if it is, help you to go about obtaining the name for yourself or your business. They will even include easily understood pricing charts that show you, for example, whether or not a .com domain name may be more or less expensive than a .org name. From this point on, it’s a step-by-step process that the site will essentially walk you
through until you own your own domain name.

There have always been cheaper ways of starting amateur websites that are usually quick and effortless, and if you’re just looking to basically goof off on the Internet, these options are appropriate for you. However, for anyone who wants to go about setting up a serious website for personal or professional usage, the registration of a unique and legitimate domain name is an absolutely crucial first step. This is basically how you create a website that will be called exactly what you want it to be called, rather than one that branches off of an amateur page creator. Companies like Network Solutions basically exist to set you off on the right foot on your way to setting up your website.

UK Broadband

The UK Broadband provides the wireless and equipment services and also solution to the service providers, telecommunication industry, channel partners and public sector in U.K. Broadband is otherwise known as ADSL which is the way to connect to internet. It offers greater speed by connecting internet through the dialup system. The users can avail availability of internet anytime with this system and need not have to connect or disconnect from the internet. This broadband service can be used at a monthly price with various plans that well suits the needs.

The UK Broadband is growing fast and there are many attractive deals offered by the broadband providers. Unlike the past where the internet users were paying internet access through dial up and connecting through the modem of 56k, today the broadband is available at 24mb with the ADSL2+ introduction. From the Virgin Media, the fiber broadband front of 50 MB broadband is available. The users can know more information about the broadband speeds, deals and select it according to their requirements by checking of websites online. The standard broadband offers 512k which faster by 10 times when compared to the dial up, but there are also many other broadband providers who offer even at much faster speed.

The UK Broadband for mobile is increasing today and it is also becoming very popular. This has made the broadband providers in the UK to come up with new plans and deals to withstand the competitors. The mobile broadband providers are mostly the mobile phone companies who have an extensive mobile network already across the country. This therefore helps the users get better coverage.
