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 your preferred method of home entertainment, and you only require the internet for email and web-browsing, you can opt for Sky’s add-on deal, allowing you 20Mb broadband at no extra cost. The ‘Everyday Lite’ deal is the perfect foil to the Unlimited package, and demonstrated just how well Sky understands the widely varying needs of customers.


For new customers, the ‘Fairytale Deal’ brings you all of Sky’s services for less than £20 per month. Log on to the Sky website to find out about the assorted TV packs – Variety, Music, Knowledge, Style & Culture, News & Events and Children’s - you can get as part of the deal.

BSkyB was formed in 1990 following a merger between Sky Television and British Satellite Broadcasting. With the launch of the Astra 2A satellite in 1997 came the launch of Sky’s fully digital service. Sky Broadband now has more than two million subscribers, making it the fourth most popular ISP in the UK (behind BT, Virgin Media and Talk Talk). Visit the Sky website for more information on their best broadband deals.

Building Blocks for Virtual Businesses : Key technological systems you must have to succeed in the remote business world

This is a guest post by Ripley Daniels about "Key technological systems you must have to succeed in the remote business world.

Whenever I tell friends I had a tough day at the office, they laugh at me. That's because they know I don't really have an office. I work very hard but I work for a company that is completely remote. Only a few of my co-workers ever go into an office at all and when they do, it's only for short periods of time. Our "office" is a virtual one. To us, the traditional office workplace is a thing of the past, alongside Tyrannosaurus Rex, the slide rule, and telephones where you stick your finger in a hole and turn a dial.
Unfortunately, none of this prevents me from having tough days. I still have them. But the reasons have nothing to do with the fact that my co-workers and I don't have a brick and mortar edifice that we can use to plan, strategize, hold our meetings, make presentations, discuss sensitive business topics, build relatio…

AMOLED display coming to Samsung Galaxy Tab range

This is a guest post by Erica about the arrival of AMOLED display to Samsung Galaxy Tab range.Samsung could be transplanting a seven inch AMOLED screen into an upcoming addition to its Galaxy Tab range of tablet computers.

You may have experienced an AMOLED display in a small portable device before as Samsung, Nokia and HTC have all used them in smartphones to date. However, the expense of producing AMOLED screens has prohibited them from appearing on larger devices like tablets, until now.


The seven inch Galaxy Tab was launched last year but an update with an AMOLED screen would be most welcome, cutting energy consumption and improving colours and contrast ratios across the board.


The rumours about this device state that it will run Android 3.0, feature a three megapixel camera on the rear, a two megapixel snapper on the front and have a display resolution of 1024x600 which is not bad for a device of this size.


The hardware powering the new Galaxy Tab will consist of a 1.2GHz processor w…
