Young Europeans prefer the Internet over TV

Category: News,Survey

sad-tv.jpg

Poor old television has just lost to the Internet according to a survey released by the European Interactive Advertising Association (EIAA). Apparently, a majority of the 7,000 survey participants in 10 European go online between five and seven days a week. Only 77 percent watch television just as often with 48 percent saying that their TV consumption has been reduced because of the Internet. A European teen spends an average of 11.9 hours of Internet time every week. 32 percent of the respondents cite the e-mail as particularly indispensable. Participating countries were Belgium, Britain, Denmark, France, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Norway, Spain and Sweden.

I wonder what the results will be like in the rest of the world. I guess it must be the same. I myself don�t even watch TV anymore. And if I do access my TV, it�s to watch DVD�s. Ask me about the recent TV commercials and I won�t be able to answer you. I even get my news over the Internet.

Other business minded people also make use of famous speakers to help promote their business. For example if your market are students then introduce your products and services in a Thai school or Thai classes by an enthusiastic speaker.

Always remember that in starting a business you have to be patient before earning and when talking to clients to help you be known as a reliable company.

Links: a tricky subject

To get a decent ranking these days, you need to do a fair amount of work on your link profile. You can optimise your pages as far as you like, but without the reputation indicator of a good links profile, your SEO plans are not going to get you very far.

The topic of links is a very tricky one for those new to SEO to get their heads around. Links are far from simple. They’re not simple to obtain, and they’re definitely not simple to work into your rankings calculation. Even experienced search engine optimisation experts have difficulty judging what difference a particular link is going to make to a site’s SEO.

Links were once judged in a fairly democratic fashion. One link counted as one popularity vote. This system was a simple one, and made things simple for sites in terms of search engine optimisation. If a site owner wanted to get ahead in the search engines and had completed their on-page SEO, all they had to do was arrange for a few more links to point to their site. One link, one vote.

Open-Source Corporate Security Nightmare

Category: Facts,News,Review

Cloud ComputingThe many corporations use them yet shun from using them full time, open-sourced utilities and programs that are mostly free compared to their multi-million dollar software. Businesses are worried and they have the right to be for they have been used to very secure closed-systems that are designed to be used by them and solely by them. Open-sourced systems are on the other hand, mostly developed by a community of experts and users alike, with the occasional commercial backing or support from big names are wide open security risks due to their dynamic nature.

Let Your Audience Talk Back

Category: Bloggers

feedback.jpg

One of the joys of blogging is receiving feedback. With time and a little promotion, the blog that nobody reads can get hits through searches, links and random Internet surfing. Open up by allowing your readers to react and respond to particular posts or to get to know you better personally. Give your audience more avenues to reach you. Here are some ways they can get in touch:

Commenting. Probably the most obvious system, as blogging platforms have this built-in. You can also install free services such as HaloScan to add ratings and polls.
Tagboard. An app with messages written like IM, but in reverse chronological order and not necessarily in realtime. Also known as shoutboxes.
Email and instant messaging. Leave your email address and IM username on your blog profile. You’ll find that receiving email from strangers, can be both good and bad. As a precaution, use an email address that you do not use for e-commerce transactions.

A Guide to WinMx


Image source: www.softpile.com

This product is intended to trade songs and videos transversely the Internet using “peer to peer” (P2P) networking.

It works like this: thousands of customers install WinMX on their PCs, and freely open their hard drives to each other. As these thousands of people log on to the Net using WinMX, the pool of available WinMX hard drives changes moment-to-moment. Every WinMX user is authorized to search for songs and movies, and then begin downloading and uploading music files to each other. Equitable sharing of music and movies is endorsed, and people will often share gigabytes of files with their fellow WinMX users.

This WinMX P2P network system employs its own custom file sharing client software, created by FrontCode Technologies. The WinMX is highly controversial software because of copyright laws, and WinMX users do risk possible fines and lawsuits.
