A new browser - Vivaldi

Yes and it is well worth to note the name Vivaldi . or perhaps consider to download and try the early version? The browser is available for Windows, Mac and Linux and is a new project started by former CEO and co-founder of Opera , Jon von Tetzchner together with other ex-Opera people. In a recently published article in a Norwegian online tech magazine Tetzchner...

Google Remote desktop, worth testing!

Accessing desktops remotely has been possible for a long long time. But before such tools were either insecure, not designed for cross-platform, internet use, or downright expensive. "Ages" ago we used software from a vendor called NetOp . At the time we used it there weren't many contenders or alternatives.The software had lots of good features, best traffic encryption around and a good user interface,...

Public or Private Cloud Services?

Have you ever left home and (too late) discovered there were some files on your home computer you forgot to bring? Have you ever had a need to check up on something that wasn't quite as virtually accessible as you'd hoped? Or... did your otherwise brilliant synchronization services not run as expected and, as a result, you don't really have access to important data at...

Yeah I am "drupalized", with good reason(s)

Indeed, and I don't say that because it's hip or cool, but because of the platform , the possibilities, solidity, scalability and, not entirely unimportant, safety. Though truth be told, if you are concerned with security then the first thing to consider is to get a SSL certificate for your website, regardless of what it's build with. Especially if you offer any form of login,...

First BSOD on Windows 7/64. But system restore worked!

If you are running AVG Free version (which btw is excellent IMHO) and one day feel an almost irresistible urge to try their Tune-up utility , I have one recommendation for you.... DON'T! OR... do it if you know you have a (safe) retreat or recall option. It might work for you, then again you risk ending up where I landed. For the sake of...

Choice of fonts or typefaces - what do you fancy?

Todays websites are becoming more and more graphical, with less and less text. Or makes for more easy reading than before. One reason being that it's possible from a design perspective, screens have much higher resolution which makes graphics look good, another that if you put too much text up, or the paragraph length and density is too heavy, there's a real chance skimming is...

Verse from IBM, an email revolution?

Yes, or so they claim. IBM is coming with a new email platform, now called Verse . Aha....I can almost hear you say, another of those revolutionizing concepts that will "change the way we work"? Admittedly there's a few of them around, of platforms, systems and solutions, all claiming to have potential to become your digital Oracle, soothsayer and Jinn . But it won't make...

When facebook for companies comes....

....... or when Facebook launches a version of Facebook for companies, will that change things a whole lot? Will it become a success story equal to the original facebook concept? Which was launched at a time when there only was one competitor, Myspace , now more a shadow of its original social "self". Well, the rumors of such a creation have been out and about...

Web hosting: what I like about cPanel

There are a variety of web hotel solutions out there, or web hosting management systems. The majority ranges from decent to good and gives both site owner as well as site developer most of what you need. But one platform sticks out and, I think, takes practical service provisioning to another level. Or in fact, gives you so much functionality and self control to play...
