I’ve been hearing a lot about the latest Microsoft PC Operating System Windows Blue through the grapevine since February this year, but Microsoft has finally confirmed that something dealing with the codename “Blue” is coming eventually. While Microsoft specifically mentioned that a product with “Blue” in the title wouldn’t be hitting the market, it seems that all of these recent leaks and rumours may have validity.
If you’re not familiar with what Windows Blue is all about, it’s…

Remember what Mobile phones were like before iPhone and Android? Basically mobile users fell into two categories, those who wanted the tiniest phone they could get their hands on - remember Nokia? and more serious, adult users who went the way of the Blackberry. The Blackberry was touted as the personal digital assistant. It made it easy to keep a calendar, message, and send mobile email. Every professional had a Blackberry.
RIM’s original sin was its decision to create technology…Read More

The PC is not dead, but there is a rebalance going on.
We can no longer ignore the emerging momentum in mobile device computing (tablets and smartphones) as sales of personal computers worldwide declined a shocking 8% in the last quarter, according to technology research firm Gartner.
The portable convenience of tablets and even smartphones has begun to impact productivity across virtually every industry. Time-sensitive professionals can enjoy relevant information irrespective…Read More

It's a fair argument. The days of the hard phone definitely seem to be numbered as a new generation of users live and breathe software-based communications devices. Microsoft Lync really is a step forward into a new era of the combining IM, voice, and video in a single manageable software application.
Microsoft Lync combines instant messaging, VoIP (calls utlising your internet connection) calling, live meetings, and videoconferencing, but it's more than the sum of these parts. Lync…Read More

Where does the term Cloud come from? Well in general the word cloud is used as a metaphor for the Internet and the cloud symbol was used to represent the Internet as early as 1994.
Imagine, if you will racks of servers, humming along in a data center. Together, these servers become a massive pool of resources.…Read More

The goal of "work shifting" is as simple as this: ensuring that users can do their work the same way as if nothing had happened at all. This dovetails perfectly with one of the main value propositions of desktop virtualization, which makes it possible for workers to access the same consistent desktop environment from any location on any device at anytime. desktop virtualization already enables workforce agility during routine operations by allowing users and work groups to move easily from…Read More

Imagine this nightmare: All of a sudden you wake up to find that the great website that you invested in the vehicle that is providing you with business worth tens of thousands, hundreds of thousands, or perhaps millions of pounds—has suddenly disappeared, and there’s a good chance that your domain name is owned not by you, but by somebody else.
We have seen it happen. Unfortunately, though the matter is crucial to your business, it’s all too easy to let domain name ownership slip…

A recent news report confirmed categorically that 1976 was THE year. I have to say that I smiled when I heard that. And then I started to drift back and I smiled even more. I really do think that 1976 was the best year of my childhood years.
In 1976, I was 13 years old and my life couldn’t have been better. I was the second child of Ron and Frances Buckley. My dad was a farmer and my mother cleaned at the school that I attended. My older brother Stephen had left school the…Read More

Solicitors around the world are simultaneously coming to a realization: a new dawn is approaching. Even if they can’t quite quantify that so-called “new dawn”, they can certainly feel the winds of change in the air. If solicitors in the UK were wondering if it was just some small trend, or if, perhaps, there was a similar “mini trend” with their American and Canadian counterparts, that questioned was answered this week on the Law 21…Read More

Internet trolling is no longer part of a sub-culture.
Online bullying of adults and children is soon to reach an 'epidemic' level, because no one is around to enforce any rules.

The simple answer to the question ‘is it is possible to remove defamatory content from Google search results’ is that, yes, it is possible and here is how to do it.
You do need to bear in mind however the recent data which was published by Google and which shows the type of requests to remove web content that Google is likely to accept.
And although the data shows that there had only been a handful of cases where Google agreed to remove web content from Google…

In case you missed it, Microsoft opened a can of worms in June when they were the first US company to finally admit that they would release data from any of their global datacentres if requested by the US goverment under the patriot act. This contravenes European data privacy regulations, and when you consider the kinds of data…

Because the internet is a world of extremes, success and failures could literally happen overnight.
The speed by which, you can have web pages listed on first pages of Google could bring immediate and substantial amount of money to your business, literally overnight. The same speed however that leads to this immediate success could cause complete devastation to business owners who find that their reputation has been tarnished almost overnight.

As IT Manager at Dolmans in Cardiff I am interested to learn of any Firm that has implemented a successful speech recognition project. We implemented ours about 2 years ago using Dragon Dictate. This along with the implementation of a new Case Management System had profound changes to our working practices and support overheads... Just wondering what the general feeling towards it was...
