Online Passwords – Which Is Best, Length or Complexity

June 13, 2014

Everyone these days needs to have an array of passwords to access all the websites, apps, online resources and devices that surround our daily lives.

We are constantly being urged to make our passwords difficult to guess or crack – use upper and lower case, number, and special characters to make it super safe, but is this really correct?

We all know that it’s not good practice to use a dictionary word as a password such as ‘monkey’ or ‘password’ so we mix it up by adding numbers and other characters in order to fool the common or garden dictionary attack because ‘monkey!2′ is much more difficult to crack – isn’t it?

The answer to the above question is actually ‘No’ – sure, ‘monkey!2′ is going to be harder to guess than ‘monkey’ on its own, but the key to generating a really secure password is its length, NOT its complexity. (more…)


3 Ways Of Creating An SEO Friendly Infinite Scrolling Page

June 13, 2014

Infinite scrolling pages are pages that allow users to scroll infinitely at the bottom of the page. Here the pages load more content as the user scrolls thus providing the user with never-ending amount of materials.

Although infinite scroll pages provide users with a lot of content, their main flaw is that they are not SEO friendly. The good side is that there are some measures that you can take to ensure that the pages become SEO friendly. Some of the measures that you should take include:

Including a sitemap

A sitemap is a list of pages that are in a website. The map is usually in XML format. In most cases, if the content that you are loading is separated into various units that have their own URLs, Google bots may be unable to find the content unless it’s linked in a specific spot on one of the already-indexed pages.

When you include a sitemap you let the crawlers know about the full list of pages that are available in the website and as a result increase the ranking of the pages. (more…)


Why Apple’s IOS8 Operating System Should Excite Users and Developers

June 13, 2014

Apple’s new iOS8 operating system was recently revealed at Apple’s Worldwide Developer Conference in San Francisco.

While iOS8 may not be a game changer it certainly offers many new features for business use and should excite developers wishing to share and create applications within the new framework.

On the business front, Apple has focused on stronger security. Data protection will be expanded to more applications to enable finer control over such items as mail encryption.

The expanded data protection will include basically all pertinent apps as well as user credentials. These credentials will be protected by a pass code until after a device is unlocked following a reboot.

Apple says it is unleashing a variety of enhanced productivity tools with iOS8. Inbox mail management should be easier as a quick left or right swipe enables a user to mark messages as read or unread or flag them for follow-up.

The new calendar view enables you to see your colleague’s availability to schedule a meeting, easing the effort of finding a time convenient for all parties.

Work execution will be easier with iCould Drive. Apple touts you will be able to work on any file anywhere. This will include presentations, PDFs, images and more. This will work right from the iCloud on any device you use, whether it’s a MAC or PC. (more…)

June 12, 2014

Every business owner or manager knows just how important it is to backup essential data and when a business relies on technology to contact clients and providers, intermediate communication and store files, then almost all data is essential for business, which makes backup services critical.

Data loss may be crucial to a business and many small companies never recover after such an event, reason for which it is important to research one’s options when it comes to storage and data backup and find the many benefits that come with cloud computing and backup, as there are quite many of them.

How to Create a Successful Data Archiving Strategy

June 12, 2014

With massive amounts of data being generated day in, day out, organizations require significant amounts of storage. However, as data accumulates, much of it is not necessary for day-to-day business purposes. Yet, you can’t exactly delete it due to both business and legal concerns. That’s where data archiving comes in.

Why Archive Your Data?

There are many reasons to archive data. For example, high performance solid state drives allow you to access frequently used information much faster than traditional storage devices. However, these solid state drives do not have nearly as much capacity as their hard disk drive counterparts. Thus, moving files that are no longer needed on a routine basis off of these drives frees up space for current data and reduces costs. As a side benefit, moving information off of primary storage can also lead to performance improvements. (more…)
