Mobile Flash closes down and Opening Greater Opportunity for HTML5 can be a revolution

It’s true that when one door closes, another one opens right after that. This seems to be true in case of HTML5 with Adobe making an announcement of shutting the doors on Mobile Flash. This is a move which is suggestive of the fact that HTML5 is making a great way to stay ahead in the competition with amazing progress line. It’s becoming difficult to differentiate between web-based HTML5 apps and the other native apps. But when analyzed in terms of expense, it’s a fact worth accepting that less expense is required to build a mobile with HTML5.

Web development model is good enough to save time as the developers don’t have to write it in several languages. The future of mobile web apps is very promising as inter-app messaging, background script processing and improved UI animations are few big things to look forward to. HTML5 video is capable of providing a better mobile user experience with even faster CPUs and high performance memory.

PC Clean Up Techniques

This is a guest post by David Ritchie about PC Clean Up techniques.Cleaning up your personal computer to get it running faster may take a little bit of time to really do it properly, but it will save you time by making your computer run more quickly and efficiently overall. There are various techniques you can use to boost the performance of your computer and get the clutter and cob webs out of your hard drive.

Computer clean up techniques vary and you don't have to do them all. Of course, it's recommended to do a major PC clean-up on a regular basis (perhaps two times a year), but a few techniques may suffice to keep your computer running at a decent speed. In particular, you will want to do defragmentation, spyware detection and elimination, and deletion of duplicate files.

Defragmentation of a computer's hard drive helps your computer run more efficiently by organizing the contents contained therein. Before defragmentation, your computer's hard drive likely has piec…

Network Security: Advanced Persistent Threat and Dell Coupons

This is a guest post by Margot. Unless you live completely off the grid, network security is an issue relevant to us all. From identity theft and computer viruses to major hacks into national security, we are all in need of the most up to date and constantly advancing security measures to protect our lives and businesses. Sure I use a deadbolt on my front door, but a physical home invasion is the least of my worries in comparison to the serious and permanent damage that can be inflicted online. For small businesses, Dell SecureWorks is one way to go, and you could maybe check out deals using Dell coupons to save some money on their new appliances.

Viruses that evade anti-malware exist, making giants like Apple and McAfee, and even Norway’s National Security Agency vulnerable to hackers in 2011 alone. All kinds of stuff can be sabotaged with online security breaches. In central Illinois this year someone remotely turned a water pump on and off, causing the pump to burn out. Sony’s Play…

Sky Broadband: Flexible Friend

This is a guest post by Kane Dorey

Somewhere, high above the atmosphere, the Astra satellite fleet orbits planet earth. The signals being beamed back and forth are opted by the aptly named Sky TV. But while its multitude of television channels are emerging from the cosmos, Sky’s broadband deals are well and truly terrestrial. Bringing these diffuse transmission technologies into your home as one package is what makes Sky a unique force in multimedia, and perhaps the best broadband provider around.


Sky’s award-winning broadband & TV package offers high-speed internet and an impressive choice of satellite viewing packs. The Unlimited internet deal is particularly attractive to an increasing, heavy-use internet market that has grown frustrated at ‘fair usage’ policies and bandwidth restrictions. It also allows customers to opt out of the TV package entirely. After all, if you get all your education and entertainment from the internet, why would you need 200 TV channels?


If TV is you…

How to Make Your Phone Hacker-Proof

This is guest post by Amanda Tradwick about making your phone hacker free. Smart phones have become like small laptops for many of us: We use them to store pictures and videos, to access our online accounts, and to keep other personal data such as passwords and financial information. Unfortunately, storing so much personal data on our phones makes them bigger targets for hackers trying to steal that data. Just as you would for your home computer, there are steps you must take to secure your phone and protect your information. Here are a few things you can do to make your smart phone more secure:


Use a Strong Password


The first line of defense for your phone is to restrict access to it by setting a strong password. You can set a password to enable the phone, one to access voicemail, and one to access e-mail or other apps. When you create your password, be sure to use a phrase instead of a simple word, a combination of letters and numbers (or other special characters), and upper- and low…

10 Ways to Keep your Computer Running Smoothly

This is a guest post by Sachin.

Summary: This article will consider some of the ways you can keep your computer running smoothly for as long as possible.

Computers are in use every day of our lives. Almost everyone uses a computer at work and almost everyone uses one at home; but a large number of people still have no idea how to look after a computer. Seeking computer support will help you to manage your computer so that it does not become damaged and malfunction any sooner than necessary. Computers do have a finite lifespan but it is often far cheaper and easier to seek computer repair than it is to buy an entirely new device. This article will consider some of the ways you can keep your computer running smoothly for as long as possible.

1. Never turn your computer off physically until it has properly closed down. Turning your computer off at the mains each night and over the weekend is a great way to protect the environment. Turning your computer off before it is ready, however, is…

Time to Think about Time

This is a guest post by Isabella. The Millennium Bug seems like a long, distant memory, but in the late 1990s, the Y2K bug was sending fear and panic among network administrators, governments and businesses alike. Cash machines were expected to start dishing out dollars like fruit machines, high interest current accounts would empty, planes would fall from the sky and the world was going to plunge back into the dark ages, as every computer system failed. Okay, things didn’t seem to work out to be that bad. Few if any major computer meltdowns occurred, and the world moved on.

The threat of the Millennium Bug was quite simply caused by a lack of foresight by computer manufacturers and programmers. Many computer programs only bothered to store the year in two decimal places, which meant that come the year 2000, a lot of timestamps would go from 99 to 00, essentially making the computer believe it was the year 1900. The debate was never settled whether the Y2K bug was just a damp squib, …
