Internet meltdown?

Category: News


Is this even possible? According to The Business Roundtable which is an association of CEO�s of established US companies, the threat is �urgent and real.� The breakdown of such critical information infrastructure has a 10 to 20% chance of happening in the next ten years. This can be a result of many incidences. It can be natural such as calamities or even man-made disasters such as malicious codes, code errors, or terrorist attacks.

The group also stated that an Internet meltdown, if it would ever happen, will result in reduced productivity. Profits will fall as well as stock prices. Consumer spending will erode and a liquidity crisis has a big possibility of happening. This was also discussed in �Growing Business Dependence on the Internet � New Risks Require CEO Action� � a Business Roundtable report based on earlier risk analyses done by the World Economic Forum in Geneva.

You Have to Work Hard for Your Money Online

Category: Facts,Guide

When I started out with my first home base internet business, I was taken up an offer of having my own website build within 24 hours which was ready to earn residential incomes and maximize profits with 5 others affiliate programs. To be honest, my first website was cool. However, my credit card started to feel pain. My first payment was to buy a domain name and a hosting account. Then, by following what we called step-by-step instructions, I began my quest by joining affiliate programs.

Then, I needed to join and opened an account to have an auto responder. Again, I have to pay an upgrading fee. Then, the next instruction was buying leads to generate an opt-in list. Next, I needed to advertise to Google ad words and several pay-per-click programs.

Economic Crisis Not Affecting the Internet

Category: News

As far as trying to survive in the crisis we have today, the Internet is not expected to suffer that much unless taxes and some weird laws prohibit people from using the web for livelihood. The web is evolving rapidly and has helped businesses and lives. But while many are still devising ways to keep track of these transactions, it may take time before proper sectors can pinpoint this hoopla.

Communication lines and rapid coverage are the fruits of giving the Internet a clear advantage over the rest. Many are wondering up to when this will be. From the looks of it, it will stay that way for a long time.

California DMV on YouTube

Category: News,YouTube

The California Department of Motor Vehicles has its own YouTube account. As of today, it has already uploaded 55 videos that feature tips, traffic trivia, and other advices that will help educate drivers of all ages about good (and not to mention legal) driving skills and etiquette.

And by the way, they also have a myspace account where visitors can post questions regarding traffic rules and stuff.

Hmm… not a bad idea! I think this is a pretty unconventional yet promising way to improve public service. To tell you the truth, I’d rather watch DMV videos than a toilet-flushing cat.

SharePoint 2010 has Multi-Tenancy – Rooms Available

An ability to host multiple clients/departments, and provide the ability to isolate their workloads and still provide all the platform features is one of the significant task while adopting a SharePoint platform in your company, isn’t it? For a cloud/ hosting situation we may have a need for multiple clients to have their own work areas, and the ability to host applications which does not hinder other sites within the same farm. This is when the Multi-tenancy feature of SharePoint Server 2010 comes into picture.

Take advantage of SharePoint Multi-Tenancy and other useful features of SharePoint 2010 hosting, SharePoint Foundation hosting or SharePoint Server 2010 – with shared or dedicated hosting by a SharePoint 2010 hosting provider.

So what is Multi-tenancy? Multi-tenancy is all about isolation of data, operation services and management between multiple subscribers who could be departments/ companies/ different user groups, etc.

In SharePoint Server 2010, some new improvements or changes have been added to the Multi-tenancy feature that was missing in SharePoint Server 2007. SharePoint 2010 has introduced significant improvements in Multi-tenancy so that multiple subscribers can use the same SharePoint instance with the required isolation. The primary concept which has been introduced is called Site Subscriptions. Site subscriptions are a way to group a set of Site Collections based on tenants. It allows tenants to have fine grained administration and control over data as well as administrative components.

In brief, the multi-tenancy feature in SharePoint 2010 provides out-of-the-box features to provide quick productivity for companies deploying SharePoint to support multiple clients/ departments with isolation with respect to data, administration as well as usability.

What is LINQ to SharePoint

What is LINQ? and why use it with SharePoint List data?
LINQ stands for Language Integrated Query, and what LINQ does is add a native querying syntax reminiscent of SQL to .NET Framework programming languages.
Where to get LINQ to SharePoint?

LINQ to SharePoint Server is available in several forms. Next to a regular installer (MSI-package) the project’s source code is also available for download. The reason for making the code available is to help others in implementing custom LINQ query providers. In order to use LINQ to SharePoint Server 2010, one needs the .NET Framework 3.5. If you want to profit from the Visual Studio 2008 integration, you should have Visual Studio 2008 Professional or higher.

The installer and source for the latest release can both be found in the “Releases”-tab on http://www.codeplex.com/LINQtoSharePoint. The latest sources can be found via the “Source Code”-tab on the same web site. Read more

Internet Risk from clicking on risky sites lessen

Category: News

If there’s anything you should be worried about, it’s viruses and their elk. It gets even worse that just by viewing certain sites, you get them on your PC:

The investigation, conducted by McAfee(R) SiteAdvisor(TM), studied the five major U.S. search engines (Google, Yahoo!, MSN, AOL, Ask) and found that the overall chance of clicking through to a risky site declined by 12.0%. Still, McAfee estimates that consumers click through to risky sites more than 268 million times each month.

“It’s good to see that clicking on search engine results has gotten modestly safer,” said Chris Dixon, director of strategy, McAfee SiteAdvisor. “But when almost one of 12 sponsored links still clicks through to a risky site, there remains significant room for continued improvement.”

So be very careful when clicking on unknown sites…

Compliance and Oracle’s Identity Manager

Category: News


Oracle recently released its latest version of its software, Identity Manager. For those who are new to this, it’s a user provisioning and administration software application that enables companies to update, upgrade, and add or remove user accounts from other applications and directories. Oracle states that the latest version of Identity Manager improves compliance since it provides “granular” reports which identified which users has access to specific data and other pertinent and sensitive information – which has always been a challenge for companies who wish to meet “regulatory mandates such as Sarbanes-Oxley, FFIEC and PCI.”

Facebook users complain- again

Category: Facebook,News

This is the second time that Facebook has made a booboo. Wasn’t it only last year that this particular social utility added a “news feeds” feature which only resulted to threatened protests from many of Facebook’s users. The company apologized, and I think it needs to do that again as there are reports of new complaints regarding a recently launched marketing program that apparently allows users and friends to see their online purchases. Facebook has been making steps to alleviate the situation but personally I think they need to hasten as a lot of users are getting pissed about how they put it as an invasion of their privacy.
