Choosing a Broadband Provider

Selecting a decent broadband service can be something of a minefield. There are several providers currently on the market and they all offer different packages. A customer must have a clear idea of the services that are needed before making a choice. There are some key points that must be taken into consideration if the broadband is to deliver what is required of it.

The first decision to make is whether to choose a traditional land-based system or a fibre-optic provider. Fibre-optic broadband usually delivers the fastest download speeds; however, it is not always available in certain areas. A fibre-optic service uses underground cables that are independent from normal telephone wires; they are usually more expensive but offer a premium service. Land-based systems use existing copper telephone lines but they generally offer far lower speeds. Many people opt copper-wire broadband because it entails much less disruption or because it is simply the only option.

Too many people sign up for lengthy broadband contracts which include services that exceed their needs. It is important to ascertain what is expected from a broadband service before searching for the best one. People who only use the internet occasionally should not end up paying for an expensive broadband service with unlimited downloads; this may be a simple waste of money. People who like to play computer games online or who stream a lot of music will probably find that a package with unlimited downloads is the most economical option; many firms will charge a lot for downloads that exceed a contract’s monthly allowances.

Many providers try to tie their customers into long and restrictive contracts at the point of signing up. However, many of these contracts can last for as long as two years; far too long for many. There are some excellent services on the market that only require one month’s commitment at a time. These services often don’t include the broadband equipment, however, so the small-print should be checked thoroughly before a commitment is made. Broadband provision is a very competitive market and there are many great deals available. A customer must know exactly what download limits are needed, their budget and the required duration of a contract before searching for the best deal.

Over-50s are More Tech-Savvy than Ever

Stereotypically, the average over-50 goes into a panic when dealing with the multitude of gadgets that are used in everyday modern living. Things that are taken for granted by today’s youth, such as MP3 players, Tablet PCs and smart phones, are ostensibly the bane of the older person’s life. The reality is, though, that there’s no longer such a generational void when it comes to understanding how various electrical items work.

Many aspects of technology have become an essential part of day-to-day living, and this has been of tremendous benefit to the over-50s. Take mobile phones, for example. Most older people have one, for security reasons: should they break down on a motorway, or suffer a power cut, etc. These days a mobile phone is essentially a pocket computer, meaning that in recent years, older generations have inadvertently received bite-size tutorials in becoming tech-savvy.

Of course, the internet has been the key equaliser. The vast benefits of being online have proved irresistible, even for the most technophobic of older people. Being able to chat with relatives across the other side of the world via email, for free, is a highly liberating thing for an older person, as is being able to shop online for bargains, and have items delivered straight to the door, when mobility isn’t perhaps what it used to be. The lure of something so desirable has forced older people to get to grips with the world of tech.

Google Nexus 7 Tablet PC from ASUS

Google controls the smartphone market, but tablet PCs have until recently been dominated by the Apple iPad. All that could change now that the Google Nexus 7, manufactured by Asus, now turning heads as a lighter, faster and significantly cheaper alternative.

The Nexus 7, the first in a series of flagship devices, is competitively priced, closer to the Kindle Fire than the Apple iPad, but much more a tablet PC than an e-reader with extra features. What’s more, the Nexus 7 comes with the latest version of Google’s mobile operating system, Jelly Bean, the first Android tablet to do so.

For web-browsing and email i’s clearly a quality device winning rave reviews for its multimedia handling. With its pocket-friendly 7-inch screen, featuring 1200 x 800 HD display, it’s also more portable than the iPad and weighing in at just 340g, its almost half as light. True, it’s not as high-end as the iPad, despite a quicker processer, but with 1 GB Ram, and either 8GB/16 GB of storage, is decent enough – at half the price.

But it is access to Google Play, the company’s online portal for movies, music, magazines and all-important Android apps that is the real hook for the device. Indeed £15 of credit comes with every device sold and with Android already so popular there’s no shortage of software on offer. A range of internet retailers such as Ebuyer stock the Nexus 7 online and the device is available in most major high street retailers.

So for users of Google the device could prove essential, as is reflected in the positive online reaction. Many users have praised the device for its excellent integration with other Google products and have noted how much of a breeze it is to set up. While even the staunchly loyal Apple Insider conceded that the device was a bargain that was both “responsive and smooth”.

MT5 iPhone App Review

The trading world of forex is fast. Very fast. Profits and losses can be made in a matter of seconds, which means traders want to know what’s going on every minute that the market is open. As long as they’re away from the desk, something important could be happening that they don’t know about; that they can’t capitalise on. Not anymore. Traders can now conduct their business on the go with the MT5 iPhone / iPad app. For those that don’t know, MetaTrader 5 is one of the most popular platforms for forex traders.

The app is perfect to check prices and quotes while you’re out and about. It’s not a comprehensive trading platform, but it is good at what it does – keeping you informed while you’re between screens.

All the options are there at your fingertips; quotes, charts, trades, history and settings, so there aren’t many features missing from the full software package. Data is streamed quickly, which is obviously important in finance, and navigation is as slick as you’d expect from a premium app, so you can actually trade using MT5. It is worth noting however, that the app runs slightly slower on the old 3G iPhones.

The charts, while a little slow to load, look particularly nice on the retina display; you can pull up whatever you want, such as lines, candle sticks and bar charts, and use the pinch and zoom function to view tiny detail or overall trends. The downside is that there isn’t actually enough room to display all the information you might want, so technical analysis is best left to the desktop.
In conclusion, the MT5 fx trading app is nice – it does what you need it to when you’re on the move, but don’t expect to be running your entire operation from an iPhone or even iPad. Make sure your broker has an MT5 iPad / iPhone download available.

E-Commerce Business Models

ecommerce business model Since the original curiosity that spurned ARPANET in the mid 1960s, the Internet has grown into a vast thing that is nearly ubiquitous in today’s modern society. The first real instance of e-commerce software came when businesses used the Internet in order to sell their goods to customers, but the new largest volume of e-commerce use came when businesses started to sell their services to other businesses in 2001. Of course, there are other forms of e-commerce.

E-Commerce Business Models

In all, there exist four types of business models concerning e-commerce and e-commerce software. The first of these is the aforementioned business to consumer, more commonly referred to as B2C. In this model, the business sells goods to the consumer and often uses the shopping cart transaction system with an online catalog so the customer can handle everything. This model can also include services like data backup or subscriptions.

Business to business, often shortened to B2B, is the second model. In this instance, businesses sell their services to other businesses, and an example of this may include web meetings or other intranet services.

The consumer to business, or C2B, model occurs when a consumer posts his needs and the businesses respond with something they can do, such as with online freelance job boards or with online loan brokers.

Finally, consumer to consumer, or C2C, occurs primarily where the business acts merely as a medium. Two consumer parties interact with one another, often through classified ads or other forms of offers. Thanks to social networking, this is quickly becoming even more popular than B2B e-commerce.

The Hyperdrive CloudFTP

Cloud storage is a relatively recent concept in the world of computing but already we are seeing innovative products such as Sanho’s Hyperdrive CloudFTP providing new methods of accessing and transferring data from USB storage devices to WiFi-enabled devices without the use of a traditional desktop PC. The changing shape of mobile computing use means that such solutions may well become an increasing necessity as the amount of kit people carry around with them continues to increase and the interoperability of such devices becomes paramount.

Physically, the CloudFTP is an unassuming little box, weighing a shade over one-hundred grams and fitting comfortably in the hand. The plastic exterior houses the expected USB and charging ports, with the front of the unit containing an LCD screen displaying the WiFi SSID that you are currently connected to. The design is simple, clear and functional and unlikely to cause any major confusion amongst users.

Of course aesthetics are not really the highlight of the CloudFTP. Where the magic really happens is in its capacity to free you from the necessity of having to use your laptop or desktop PC in order to stream the content contained in your USB storage device to your iPad or any similar WiFi-enabled device. It also offers the ability to backup and synchronise all the data contained in your device with services such as iCloud or Dropbox which could prove invaluable when issues of security and data-protection are taken into account.

All in all, the CloudFTP seems set to start a small revolution in the way we are able to interact with the data held on the growing number of storage solutions we use in the modern computing environment. Sanho should be congratulated for getting the project off the ground and the concept seems sure to be one which will prove itself increasingly useful as time goes on.

Top 5 Advantages of Android Phones

When you compare phones, one of the most important things you pay attention to is the platform. Windows Phone, iOS, Symbian, MeeGo and, of course, Android – all of these operating systems have their advantages and disadvantages, and people usually try to consider all of them before making a final choice and buying a new phone.

What are the most important advantages of Android over the other platforms? What makes Android so special and so popular? Let’s now try to find it out.

1. Android is open-source

Android is Linux-based open-source platform, which gives it a number of obvious advantages. First of all, it means that not only one company develops it, but a huge number of people worldwide contribute to making it better. Of course, this makes the platform more secure, since a team of developers that work in one company can miss a bug or a serious flaw, but the thousands of eyes that are reading Android’s codes each day won’t miss any bug anyway.
