VoiceTab II-HP

VoiceTab II-HP


Less than a year after introducing the
Slate 6 VoiceTab, HP released its successor:
 the Slate 6 VoiceTab II. The only differences
 that we can spot right now between the new
 tablet and the old model are related to the
software version, and the rear camera.

The Slate 6 VoiceTab II runs Android 4.4 KitK
at out of the box instead of 4.2 Jelly Bean like
 the original tablet, and comes with an 8 MP
 rear camera instead of a 5 MP one.


 The rest of the features seem to have
 remained unchanged, including: 3G connectivity,
 a 6-inch IPS display with 720 x 1280 pixels,
 2 MP front-facing camera, a quad-core 1.2 GHz
 Marvell PXA1088 processor, 1 GB of RAM,
16 GB of expandable storage space, and a
3000 mAh Li-Po battery.
The device obviously has voice-calling capabilities,
 and even offers support for two SIM cards.

Android One initiative-Google

Android One initiative-Google

All things considered, the Android One
 initiative that Google announced several
 months ago is a pretty attractive undertaking
 that's hard to be beaten, at least on the
 entry-level market. After all, what's not
 to like - stock, unaltered Android combined
 with a mind-bogglingly low price tag.
Well, the limited availability of the
Android One devices is one of the downsides,
 but after all, the initiative was intended for India.

From now on, however, those from the UK
 who are on the market for an entry-level
 device might benefit from the Karbonn

Web hosting in the cloud

Web hosting in the cloud

Cloud computing is all the rage these days
 and the hosting industry is no exception.
 The basic idea of cloud computing is that
you join multiple computers together to
 provide faster, more reliable performance.

In terms of web hosting, that translates to
meaning that websites get delivered faster
and don’t suffer from slowdowns.


When one website receives a lot
of traffic, the load is spread equally among
multiple servers in the cloud.

Imagine it as a grocery store where,
if the lines at the checkouts get long,
shelf-stackers and other staff from
around the store are summoned to
temporarily open additional checkouts
until the rush is over.

Cloud hosting has a couple of small
drawbacks, but they affect only the most
security-conscious users. Some users
 may be concerned about data security
due to multiple websites floating around
 in the same cloud, and the potential
exists for a hacker to break an entire
 cloud rather than one server, but for
the majority of website owners, the
advantages of the cloud far outweigh the
drawbacks.

Automating Functions with cron Jobs

Automating Functions with cron Jobs

Think of cronas being short for chronology,
and it will help you see that it is for jobs that
are performed automatically on a fixed time
 schedule by theserver’s internal clock.
 It’s like setting the timer to switch the heating on
before you get up in the morning or setting your
 DVR to record the sameshow every week.



The command for a cron job basically has two parts:
✓ The command that the server should run:This means giving it the full
path to the file that you need to run and any switches that are needed to
perform the function. The software you run on your website should provide the correct switches to include.
✓ The exact time and schedule on which the job should be executed:
There is huge flexibility built into this system, meaning you can schedule
the task to run exactly when you want on whatever schedule you want.
cPanel provides an easy configuration screen for cron jobs. Here’s how to
use it:
1. Open cPanel and log in using the details your host gave you when you
signed up.
2. Scroll to the Advanced section and click Cron Jobs.
3. If you want to be e-mailed every time any cron job runs, enter your
e-mail address in the first box and click Update Email.
4. Select the schedule on which you wish the command to run.
There are some common settings to select from, or you can create your
own schedule.
You must fill every box when setting the schedule; otherwise the cron
job creation will fail.
5. Enter the command you want the server to run into the Command box.
You must add the full server path to the file you want to run in the cron
job. The server cannot guess which folder the file might be in!
6. Click Add New Cron Job to create the job and add it to the cron.

Site navigation for three reasons

Site navigation-SEO is to be profitable

Site navigation is crucial for three reasons
all of them fundamental to
SEO:
• Usability- helping users find what they want.
• Indexing- helping search engines find all your pages.
• Link power- distributing it to all your pages.
Only if a page is indexedby a search engine such as Google can it
appear on that engine’s results pages.

The least competitive of keywords, it is the most important factor in
determining where a page appears on search engine results pages
SERPs.
Link power is crucial and your pages can’t have enough of it (especially
the most important pages on your site - let’s call them your ‘Superman
pages’).
Good usabilityis a must if you want to maximize response. So let’s say
it’s a given that the usability team can do more or less what they want
and SEO must then adapt to that (without messing it up).
The first thing usability might ask for is a search box. That would work
for your site’s visitors, but is no use for SEO, as search engines (they are
simple things) can’t ‘search’ with search boxes. Search engines need
links.



Perhaps you’ve now planned your site’s structure consisting of a home
page, maybe five to ten category pages with five content pages each.
Or you might need only five pages in total on your site. Or already have a
site with thousands of content pages (perhaps articles or products) and
hundreds of category pages.
Of course this will depend on your particular circumstances.
But however large or small your site, you are going to need to create
content and optimize it.

You’ll want a content management system (CMS) to create and manage
pages yourself without the need for expensive and busy developers.
You’ll need flagship content that can be used to promote your site, build
your brand and get links from other sites.
You’ll also need lots of long tail content to target the long tail keywords
in your target niches.
Long tail content must still be interesting and good enough for users to
want to stay on your site and return.

Building a Marketing-Effective Web Site

Building a Marketing-Effective Web Site


presentation of information affects emotional
 response and thus influencesbuying decisions.
 Designers ask about your target audiences to be sure to
select or create appropriate design elements.

While essential for any type of sales collateral or
 packaging, marketing communications is particularly
 critical because of the short window for grabbing
attention on the Web. Experienced Web designers
 intuitively adjust the font style, graphic style, colors,
 images, and white space to have a positive impact
on your marketing process while reinforcing your brand.


How quickly can you identify the different
 demographics of the audiences for
these sites? Gender is obvious. What about
 economic status? Can you identify any
 similarities between these sites?

Put your company logo on your Web site,
 just as you would on any other
advertising or packaging; it’s an essential
 part of your brand. If you don’t
have a logo, this is a good time to get one.
 Ask your graphic artist to design
one for you, make one at sites like
 LogoMaker.com, or search for free logosto
find the names of companies that sell logo
software or inexpensive, pre-made
logos.

Contentrefers to everything you provide for the
 Web site, from written copy to photographs,
 from product information for a database to a calendar of
events.

People don’t read online; they scan to save time. That makes sense because it
takes 25 percent longer to read the same material onscreen than it does to
read it on paper. Because of the limitations of time and screen space, you
need to adapt your writing style for the Web. Try to follow these precepts:
Use the inverted pyramid.Use the journalistic convention of the
inverted pyramid, with the most important information at the beginning
of each page. Readers might never reach the end of the first paragraph,
let alone the end of the page.

Grab readers with headlines. Good headlines grab readers by the
lapels. Subheads help break up the text on a page, making it easier to
read. If you use a different font size, style, or color for your headings and
if your headlines or subheads include a search term, you might receive
extra points in search engine rankings.

Write strong leads. The first sentence on the page is called the lead.
Hook readers with benefits, telling them what they’ll find on your site,
store, or page. It improves search engine ranking to include three to four
search terms in the first paragraph.

Stay above the fold.Keep the most important information above the
fold— that is, keep it above the part of the page that users have to scroll
to see. Depending on the audience, perhaps fewer than 50 percent of your
visitors will scroll below the fold.

Avoid long, scrolling pages.Many short pages of 150 to 200 words are
preferable to a few long pages. If long text is unavoidable, consider creating HTML files that users can download and print out easily.

Alternatively, use the Frequently Asked Question FAQ format. At the
top of a page, create a list of links to anchor paragraphs text, often
below the fold, that viewers access from links at the top of the same
page, without scrolling.

Limit use of PDF files.While designers like PDF files because PDFs preserve designs, this file format isn’t great for users. Generally, restrict PDF
files to distributing long documents intended for print, not for reading
online.

Hollywood Film Awards

“This was a great opportunity for a studio and its talent,
 especially now that the show is on CBS regardless
 of the ratings – 4.1 million – essentially, a free ad for
 a movie that is about to be released.

The telecast itself told viewers right at the beginning
 that they would be getting a look at “the highly
anticipated movies you are going to want to see

” and that it would serve as “a guide to films that are
going to be coming to theaters” according to the
 Hollywood Reporter.THR.COM “For movies that
 have not yet been seen by the vast majority of
 moviegoers – i.e. Unbroken,Still Alice, Foxcatcher,
The Imitation Game, etc. – the motivations and benefits
 of a HFA appearance are even clearer.”
THR.COM Winners: Hollywood Film Awards 2014
 “I think that the holier-than-thou crowd could use a
reality check: Even the Oscars, that oldest and most
revered of awards season institutions, was created as a

free seo tools-practice good SEO themselves

free seo tools

There are a myriad of free SEO tools available, 
and even many sites that list these free tools the compendium
 sites are generally supported by advertising, and
 must therefore practice good SEO themselves to be successful.

Some good sites that list and provide links
 to free SEO analysis tools
Some of the most useful and free single-purpose SEO tools are:
These tools can definitely be time savers, particularly
 if you have a large amount of content you need to optimize. 
The price is certainly right.

Individual tools also can serve as a reality check: by running
 your pages through one of these tools you can get a pretty
 good feeling for how well you have optimized a page.
 However, you should bear in mind that there is nothing 
that one of these tools can do for you that cannot also 
be done by hand given the knowledge you have
 learned from this article.

Individually, SEO analysis tools available on the 
Web can help you with your SEO tasks. However,
 to get the most from these tools you need to
 understand underlying SEO concepts, as explained
 in this article, before you use these tools.
Over time, as you progress with SEO, you will 
probably accumulate your own favorite SEO analysis toolkit.

Online creating graphics tools-offer images and image conversions

Web tools-offer images and image conversions

Great! But how do
you create them and get them in the right
 format GIF or JPEG? Fortunately,
creating the graphics you want, or
finding some to use, is pretty easy.
The easiest way to obtain graphics is to
 get access to a clip art collection.
Computer stores sell many inexpensive collections
 of business and recreational graphics on
CD-ROM. You can also access a number of royalty-free
graphics and icon collections online.

If you’re doing a business or professionally
 focused Web page, it’s important
that it have a clean, professional look.
 To get this kind of look, you have to
use attractive graphics and lay out your page
 carefully.

You can spend endless hours looking for art
 online. In fact, just this search alone may make
 you glad to be creating a Web page. You may not get a lot
done for a few hours while you’re looking, but you’ll see a lot of neat stuff!
To get you started, here’s a listing of sites we find especially cool:
For a large number of different kinds of resources, go to the main
WebReference site at www.webreference.com.

For images, go directly to the images area at www.webreference.com/
authoring/graphics/images.html.

For backgrounds, visit www.webreference.com/authoring/
graphics/backgrounds.html.

For photographs, try a site with preexisting stock photos — www.
imagestate.comis one we can recommend. Another choice, popular
with professionals, is www.gettyimages.com.

You can find many more sites that offer images and image conversions.
Start with the sites that we mention and expand your search until you
find what you need.

Using the Image Search feature on the AltaVista search engine is one of the best
ways to look for suitable graphics. Be careful, though: Most of the graphics you
find are copyrighted; for your Web site, you should only use images that are
explicitly made freely available. Visit AltaVista at www.altavista.com.
Google also has an image search feature; check it out at www.google.com.

Ubuntu and Meizu-Ubuntu powered Meizu

Ubuntu and Meizu-Ubuntu powered Meizu

The agreement sets joint goals to build and
promote a new version of the Meizu's Flyme OS,
 which is based on Ubuntu touch software and
 an application ecosystem to go along with it. Few
 specifics were provided, but Meizu expects the
 first MX phones with the new OS to hit consumer
 markets in both China and Europe in Q1 2015.

Although it is still unclear which models will be getting
 the overhaul, it is safe to assume that the company's
 flagship MX 4 will be among them. At the MWC
 2014 the two companies presented a prototype of
 the new device line based on the MX3 hardware.

Unfortunately, after this announcement fans were
 left clueless as to whether their excitement was
 justified or not. Ubuntu touch has long been in the
 works, but has not had any real implementations
up to date. The platform itself is quite an interesting
 brain child of Canonical Ltd.

The main idea behind it is a uniform kernel and set
of base technologies that form a cross device
 application platform. What this implies is a high level
 of uniformity and compatibility, allowing you to use
 pretty much the same set of applications, both on mobile
 and desktop devices.



To further add to the excitement,
 Ubuntu touch also promises a full desktop experience
and perhaps even in the future a full desktop Ubuntu session
 running straight from the phone or tablet once hooked to
a bigger screen. Since Meizu is also working closely with
 AliBaba and using their cloud services it also seems
logical that any possible future models, powered by Ubuntu
Touch will retain the Flyme OS functionality, look and
feel and the two might be blended in a unique user UI experience.

TouchWiz gets flamed a lot

TouchWiz gets flamed

TouchWiz gets flamed a lot for its looks, but what
 if Samsung enabled themes? Sony has them,
 CyanogenMod has them, many Android
customizations do - they offer the ability to quickly
 change the look of the device and often goes
beyond just changing the wallpaper and icons.

A new theme option in TouchWiz A Themes setting
screen is visible in photos of a Galaxy S5 running a
 leaked Android 5.0 Lollipop version. It's not clear
 how extensive the customizations via the Themes
 will be or which devices will get the new functionality
 - presumably the current and last year's Galaxy S and
 Galaxy Note, the Galaxy Alphas too.


Another change is that the S Finder button has
been moved to the upper left corner and the Quick
 Connect button is gone. This will save some space in the notification area.

Amazon to offer free video-streaming service

Amazon to offer free video-streaming service

That whooshing sound that Netflix is hearing today,
 is the sound of its customers preparing to head for
 the exits. According to a report published on Friday,
 early next year Amazon will launch a free streaming
 video service, supported by ads. The plan calls for
Amazon to spin the service off from Prime, its $99
a year premium membership club that offers access
 to its Instant Video service.


One theory is that Amazon wants a larger audience
 that it might be able to up-sell to the $99 Prime
 membership. And in the worse-case scenario,
 Amazon increases its share of the streaming video market
Amazon denies planning free video streaming service By Chris
 Welch; ... the Journal claims Amazon may offer free music video
 streams to its online shoppers.

The Kings have plenty reason to celebrate

The Kings have plenty reason to celebrate

The Kings have plenty reason to celebrate their
 last season in Arco Arena. They have celebrated
 the first of six Legends Nights honoring former
 players that made an impact on the team. Last night,
 Sacramento welcomed back TNT Analyst Chris
 Webber and former point guard Mike Bibby.
 Together they reminisced about their time in a
Kings uniform where they played in front of a sellout
crowd every night despite not winning a NBA Championship.

But no worries because the new and improved
 team put on a show tonight against a Chicago Bulls
 team without both starters, Derrick Rose and Pau Gasol.
Sacramento handed the Bulls their first loss on the road
this season snapping a six-game winning streak on the road.
 The Kings 103-88 win improved them to 7-5 their best
 start since the 2006-07 season. In a rare nationally televised game, Sacramento did not disappoint.


"I don't care if we're on TNT or the Home Shopping Network," said head coach Michael Malone. "We needed to get back to playing Kings basketball, which is defending, sharing the ball, and valuing the ball. We did a great job of that tonight."

Sacramento outscored Chicago 22-7 in the final eight minutes. DeMarcus Cousins had 22 points and 14 rebounds despite having five fouls. Rudy Gay added 20 points and Darren Collison finished with 17 points and a season-high 12 assists. The Kings went on a 11-1 run in the third when Joaquin Noah threw a tantrum toward the bench after being called for a foul after battling for a rebound along with Cousins.

"I think that was a big part of the swing, and you try to manage that as best as you can," head coach Tom Thibodeau said regarding foul trouble. "So, we're going to have to correct that."

"I think frustration is part of the game," said Noah. "You just got to be able to control your emotions the best way possible. I'm an emotional player but I want to win the game so I just have to be smarter, learn from my mistakes, and keep it moving."

The legends of the future are making a name for themselves early with sharing the ball. Credit Collison for recording his second straight double-double and getting the offense involved early. He had 23 assists and only one turnover in his past two games. Collision also recorded six rebounds, one steal and one block.

WEB DESIGN AND MARKETING-FOR BUSINESS WEBSITES

WEB DESIGN FOR BUSINESS WEBSITES

At a minimum, users should see a thumbnail
of the product. This does not have to be elaborate.
 To avoid forcing users to squint, make sure that
 the image is at least 150 pixels wide.

Providing a larger image when the thumbnail is
 clicked is almost always a good idea. This
higher-resolution version should appear in a
 new browser window, not because this
constitutes better usability which it really doesn’t,
 but because people expect and accept this
functionality that has been perpetuated by
thousands of websites. This window can be
loaded several different ways:

1.The simplest method involves adding the targetattribute to the anchor tag, such as
<a href="/images/tractor-engine_large.jpg" title="View a higher resolution
photo" target="_blank"><img src="/images/tractor-engine_thumbnail.jpg
alt="tractor engine" /></a>. This technique avoids JavaScript, which might be

disabled; the disadvantage is that the targetattribute is deprecated in XHTML 1.0
and beyond, and if included, will prevent the page’s markup from passing the W3C
validator.

2.To open a new window while keeping the page valid, many developers use
JavaScript. A basic version would look like this: <a href="/images/tractor-engine_
large.jpg" onclick="window.open(this.href); return false;"><img
src="/images/tractor-engine_thumbnail.jpg" alt="tractor engine" /></a>.

3.The previous JavaScript examples only load the images in a new window, but the
language also has the power to dictate the design of the browser window, such as
the width and height, whether the navigation items are visible, and whether the
window is resizable. Building off the previous example, a simple version might look
like  <a href="/images/tractor-engine_large.jpg" onclick="window.open
(this.href, 'popupwindow', 'width=300,height=400,scrollbars,resizable');
return false;" ><img src="/images/tractor-engine_thumbnail.jpg
alt="tractor engine" /></a>.

4.There are also many external scripts that handle this functionality as well. Roger
Johansson, author of the web design site 456 Berea Street, wrote a simple script
that loads any link with a rel="external"attribute in a new window, relegating the
behavior to an external file.
1
Lightbox, another good option covered later, is a
piece of JavaScript that loads images into a <div>that overlaps the main page. Both
ofthese prevent the JavaScript from being embedded in the HTML, so the page size
is kept small and the HTML remains semantically strong.
Generally, opening links in new windows is regarded as bad usability and accessibility practice, but in this case, users expect a thumbnail to open a new window with a larger image.
The one and only concrete rule about this entire discussion is to nevermake a thumbnail
link to an image that is not bigger. If a higher-resolution version with increased detail is
unavailable, do not link the thumbnail.
