The trouble about wallpaper websites are, either they have little quality wallpapers or wallpapers are that you examine everyday or even both. Another trouble is your screen resolution. There are lots of screens that are supporting different monitor resolutions.

TNT TV: Rockets Vs. Lakers Airing Now, Celtics Beat Heat 88-80 in Opener

Live right now on TNT TV: the Los Angeles Lakers hosting the Houston Rockets in a 2010 season opener.
And early into the first quarter of action, Houston and LA are both shooting lights-out.
Earlier this evening on TNT, the Boston Celtics ruined the big three's debut with Miami by destroying the Heat 88-80.
In Miami's season-opening loss, LeBron James scored 31 points, Dwyane Wade netted 13 points, and Chris Bosh contributed with eight points.
Leading the way for Boston was Ray Allen with 20 points while Rajon Rondo lit up the stat sheet with 17 dimes.
Also scoring in double-figures for the Celtics were Paul Pierce (19 PTS), Glen Davis (13 PTS), and Kevin Garnett (10 PTS).
Garnett also notched another NBA double-double by pulling down 10 boards in Boston's victory over Miami.
In his Boston debut, meanwhile, Shaquille O'Neal played a tad over 19 minutes: scoring nine points, grabbing seven rebounds, and blocking one shot.

Netbook vs. iPod Touch Debate

Netbook vs. iPod Touch Debate
Posted on March 19, 2009 by toddwilliamson

There is currently a debate bubbling just under the surface comparing the iPod Touch to Netbooks for the future of classroom computing. Recently at the NCTIES conference, Cool Cat Teacher, Vicki Davis, mentioned she would rather have a classroom set of iPod Touches than laptops. I want to address a few things I’ve seen floating around these conversations. First of all, I have my own of each and love them. The amount of free and low cost programs that exist for the Touch far surpass anything available for any other phone/PDA, the quality varies wildly, but there are good versions of nearly everything that is out there.

A few limitations on the Touch:
1) Copy and Paste…although it seems little, you can’t copy something from a webpage and paste it into an email. This is supposed to be fixed with the iPhone firmware upgrade coming out this summer, which will cost $10 for Touch users.

2) Google Docs support…At this point in time you can only read Google Docs created elsewhere on the Touch. You cannot edit Docs or create new ones. This may seem like a minor thing as well, but there is no good alternative text entry method for writing anything slightly longer. Zoho Docs seems to work as a basic text editor, but I have not tried it extensively.

3) Video/Audio recording…While the Touch is great for playing video and audio, it is not capable of recording video. There is no camera as there is with the iPhone. Even if there was, the iPhone firmware currently does not support video recording. Those who have “jailbroken” their iPhones are able to record video and stream it through UStream and Qik, but this is against the Apple EULA (for what it’s worth). Additionally, the Touch does not have a built in microphone. It is possible to purchase an external mic which can be used for rudimentary recording, but the apps available to record are very simplistic at the moment.

4) WiFi only access…If your building is wireless this won’t be a problem. If not, then you won’t have Internet connection. The difference in the iPhone and iPod Touch is the way information is sent to each device. The iPhone can operate on AT&T’s 3G network receiving Internet over cell phone signals or via wifi. The Touch only operates over wifi. This can be a limitation if your school does not allow personal devices on the wifi network.

5) Flash support…currently the version of Safari that comes on the iPod Touch does not support Flash animations. This severely limits the capabilities of many online sites/educational games, etc.

6) Small size of the screen…while the screen is significantly larger than most PDAs or cell phones, it still is not optimal for some uses. For example, someone mentioned grade entry. Our school uses an online gradebook system which is accessible from the Touch. The problem is, in order to read the numbers that are entered, you have to zoom in so far that you can no longer see the student names. This makes entering more than one or two grades at a time difficult.

1) Anywhere access…as long as you have a wifi connection you can take you computer with you where ever you go. The power on the iPod touch is very similar to that of many computers just a few years ago.

2) Kindle for iPhone…though the screen is somewhat small for this, you can download books from Amazon’s Kindle Store. This is a HUGE benefit as the free application saves you the $360 it would cost to go out and buy a Kindle. The functionality of the Touch far surpasses the Kindle for student creativity. The Kindle is purely for consumption of content. Having access to the largest ebook retailer in your pocket anywhere you have wifi access is amazing.

3) Calendar and contact syncing…this is improving with the Touch all the time. Though I haven’t ventured too far into this yet, I believe it is possible to integrate Google Calendar with your iPod Touch now and simultaneously update both your online calendar and your Touch calendar from either the Touch or a computer.

4) iTunes University…Fantastic professional development opportunities await for free. Take college level courses via video podcast. Dive into podcasts from major names in education. This is great for students to see as well.

Overall, the cost of an iPod Touch is significantly less than that of a laptop…unless you start looking into netbooks. The functionality of netbooks exceeds what most people require from their portable computers. My recent NCMSA blogging stint was done entirely from my MSI Wind netbook, which was quite the conversation starter in and of itself. The only thing a netbook lacks that the Touch has, is access to the Kindle Store. For the cost, I’m very satisfied with my netbook…at $350 if it lasts me 2 years, I’m looking at a cost of only about $16 per month of use. The Touch is only $10 per month based on the same time frame. The real question to ponder is, are there applications on the computer that you can’t live without, or vice versa are their applications that put the Touch far ahead of the netbook market. At the moment, there’s only one (Kindle) but that may well change in the near future as more folks begin developing iPhone/iPod Touch apps.

Where do you stand on the netbook/Touch debate? Which do you think will be the future of classroom computing? Or do you see something else entirely filling the classroom niche?

Best Taser X26 Price, Where to Buy By Nancy Ellis

Crime rates have dropped to an all time low. Maybe people are rightfully searching for Taser x26 price, as well as other models of Tasers and self defense products. The appeal of the Taser™ is its power combined with ease of use. One's physical size is of lesser consequence when a Taser™ is involved. Whoever has the Taser Gun has the upper hand.

Taser Guns work on everybody. A Taser shot stops the muscle nerves from working, incapacitating an attacker. This gives you enough time escape and call police. Taser guns are recognizable. Unlike other self protection devices, which may be disguised, Taser guns such as the Taser x26c are noticeable.

So how does a Taser work? When shot, two electrodes fired from the gun and will come in contact with an attacker. The two electrodes have wires connected to that at all times, which are directly connected to the gun. It is through these wires that the voltage current will be passed. It is this voltage current that will incapacitate an attacker so that they are no long able to move their muscles.

If you are planning to browse Taser x26 price, and Tasers in general, the best place to buy would be online. At the current moment in time the three most popular models that are being sold is the Taser X26C, Taser M26C due to reliability. You will see Taser x26 price varying between $1,000 and $1,200. The great thing about these models is that they offer a life time guarantee - few other products can boast such a guarantee.

One thing that you have to keep in mind with regard to owning a Taser in the United States is that you will require a license to legally own one. If you have a Taser without a license, you are risking yourself to be liable for a fine and even imprisonment. There are certain states in America that do not allow one to own a Taser even with a license. One such state is New York. Before buying a Taser, it is highly recommended that you take a bit of time to research the legal complications that are related to your country.

It is best to browse Taser x26 price, and other Tasers from a professional website. is owned by an active Washington police officer, who saw the need to provide Americans with a trusted source for Tasers and other self defense products. Safety Beginning is a highly recommended source with the Taser x26 for sale. When you buy your Taser x26 from Safety Beginning, you will receive $100 rebate! This is a deal you won't find elsewhere.

Need a Cheap New Laptop? Here's How to Get the Very Best Deal! By Felicity Fairport

A cheap new laptop is a prize. A good cheap new laptop, though, might be considered the holy grail of personal electronics shopping. The reward of the careful comparison shopper and patient laptop researcher.
Of course, you're a smart shopper--and you can figure out how to find a stellar deal and grab the best laptop prices. But why not get a little assistance and benefit from a laptop review blogger's research? Maybe you'll find a tip or two here that will save you time and money.
Let the "Early Adapters" Chase After the Latest Technology
It's easy to convince yourself that you ought to have whatever is cutting-edge and new when you buy a laptop. After all, computers become obsolete so rapidly that there are some good arguments for getting as much as possible of the "latest and greatest" when you go looking for a cheap new laptop. Remember, though, that some bells and whistles are more for entertainment or convenience than for performance. Don't skimp on performance, but don't think you have to have the very best DVD and gaming capabilities, either. You'll pay a high price for these--and insisting on having that stuff may lead you to overlook some excellent laptop values. Here are the minimum performance-related criteria you should be looking for if you are a student or professional:
Processor speed - 2 GHz and up
Memory - At least 1GB of RAM installed
Hard drive - 40 GB to 60 GB
Screen size - Around 15" for the best blend of portability and viewing experience
Weight - 5 lbs and under
Battery Life - At least 4 hours. (The low-voltage models now offer up to 12, by the way.) Also consider buying an additional battery when you make your purchase.
Buy a refurbished laptop
I've heard it said, when seeking computer buying advice, "Once a lemon, always a lemon." In other words (or so my uber-geek friends have told me), if a computer didn't work right for the person who first purchased it, it'll never work quite right for anyone else. I'm sorry--but I just don't buy this. There are a million reasons why someone might return a computer (including just being too computer-illiterate to know how to use it properly). I have personally had very experiences with buying a cheap new laptop from refurbished computer outlets.
Buy from a total geek
I'm being a little tongue in cheek here, but what I'm really saying here is, if you're willing to have your cheap new laptop actually be a (slightly) used new laptop, chase after the early adapters. We all know that person whose idea of obsolescence is a year-old computer that can't run World of Warcraft with quite the smoothness in high-def mode that it once did. Or whose identity is so defined by the computer subculture that it is an embarrassment to have an "older model" laptop. Try looking on Craigslist. The sellers who have exhaustive features lists and ads you can barely understand are your targets. Oh, and if you happen to find a geek who is also a conspiracy theorist, so much the better. You'll end up with a computer with great virus protection and spyware.
You also may want to check out gaming forums for their trading sections. (Most have a place where gamers can sell their computers so as to enable their next planned upgrade.)
Look on the manufacturer's websites
I've often found better cheap new laptop deals on the Toshiba website, for example, than from the major online shopping sites. Many of these are refurbished computers, but you'll also find models that are about to be replaced by a newer version.
Bookmark websites that give you quick recommendations and current sale alerts.
And, of course, it's also good to have a few sites bookmarked that offer good, current cheap new laptop recommendations and sale alerts. If you want some of those specifics on models and best laptop prices--in a format that won't totally overwhelm you with small-print comparison grids and ads, then come on over to My Cheap New Laptop and browse my recommendations and shopping suggestions.
On that site, I try to focus on the kind of full-featured laptops under $700 that would be appropriate for a student or professional. I also try to keep a current list of cheap gaming laptops for under $1000. So, go find your own holy grail of very cheap laptops at

Google Singkirkan Aplikasi Android Adolf Hitler

Stefanus Yugo Hindarto - Okezone
CALIFORNIA - Sejarah kelam perang dunia kedua, masih membekas di hati sejumlah negara, seperti Jerman dan Amerika Serikat. Tak heran jika hal-hal berbau tokoh perang dunia kedua, Adolf Hitler mengundang perdebatan.

Baru-baru ini, Google di protes karena memasukan aplikasi Theme Adolf Hitler di Android App Marketplace. Analis dari Altimeter Group, Michael Gartenberg melaporkan adanya theme Adolf hitler untuk sistem operasi Android.

"Aku sangat terganggu bagaimana Theme tersebut muncul dalam hasil pencarian. Jelas hal ini dibuat untuk menyinggung," tulis Gartenberg di akun twitternya seperti dilansir Engadget, Minggu (15/8/2010).

Setelah mendapatkan protes, Google langsung menyingkirkan aplikasi tersebut dari Android Market. gartenberg mengaku, ia telah mendapatkan balasan dari Google yang menyatakan telah menghapus aplikasi Pro Hitler, dan mengakui bahwa aplikasi tersebut melanggar Term of Service (ToS) yang ada di Android Market.

Gartenberg, menjelaskan ketika itu ia mencoba mencari aplikasi dengan kata 'jewish' namun, tak ditemukan aplikasi apapun. Namun, ketika ia mengetikkan kata 'Hitler' maka ada beberapa aplikasi yang keluar seperti 'Hitler Theme 2', sebuah aplikasi yang dikembangkan oleh Creature Apps. Selain itu, ketika diketik kata 'Nazi' maka yang muncul adalah aplikasi-aplikasi yang sama ketika mencari dengan menggunakan kata 'Hitler'.

Google sendiri mengungkapkan bahwa aplikasi 'Hitler Theme 2' baru diunduh sekira 50 kali. Banyak yang menyesalkan tentang keberadaan aplikasi tersebut, apalagi dibuat oleh pengembang sekelas Creature Apps.

Pengembang aplikasi Creature Apps, selama ini dikenal sebagai pengembang aplikasi Pinup Girl 7 Theme, Legend of the Seeker Theme,'Team Edward Twilight Theme, dan Waldo Theme.

Tablet iPad Mulai Ancam Penjualan Netbook

Tablet iPad Mulai Ancam Penjualan Netbook

TAIPEI - Kepopuleran penjualan tablet iPad ternyata mengancam keberadaan netbook. Bahkan, vendor PC sekelas ASUSTek harus mengalami penurunan karena tablet besutan Apple tersebut.

DigiTimes melaporkan, Selasa (17/8/2010) bahwa penjualan netbook Asus meleset pada kuartal kedua tahun ini. Melesetnya target yang dipasang terutama disebabkan oleh persaingan dari iPad tersebut.

Akibatnya, perusahaan asal Taiwan ini telah menyesuaikan target pengiriman pada kuartal ketiga tahun 2010 ini hanya menjadi 1,4 juta unit saja.

"Karena pengiriman menurun dari motherboard, notebook dan netbook, kinerja keuangan Asustek untuk kuartal kedua mengalami penurunanl," tegas CEO ASUSTek Jerry Shen.

"Tapi kami akan terus menawarkan Eee PC dan akan masuk ke segmen tablet PC dengan Eee Note dan seri Eee Pad," cetusnya

Shen menambahkan bahwa Asustek telah secara bertahap meningkatkan produksi outsourcing, dengan proporsi total produksi dijadwalkan akan naik menjadi 30 persen pada akhir tahun 2010 dan 50 persen pada tahun 2011.

Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 This Android phone puts a fun spin on the OS and sports a good camera, but there are better alternatives.

by Brian Neal on August 13, 2010

Talk about a bold departure from the stock Android experience. When you first turn the Xperia X10 on, it doesn't even look like a Google phone. That's because Sony Ericsson didn't just skin the OS; what you see on its 4-inch screen looks and feels completely different than anything else on the market. This phone's unique Timescape feature lets you flip through social networking updates like a deck of cards, and its Mediascape app neatly organizes your music, photos, and videos--including online content. We also like the Xperia X10's 8-megapixel camera, which borrows fun features from Sony's standalone digicams like face and smile detection. Unfortunately, this 1-GHz smart phone doesn't feel nearly as fast as its clock speed, and it runs the now ancient Android 1.6 OS. So is its $149 price tag reasonable for the features you get, or should you just step up to the Samsung Captivate or iPhone 4?


With its 4-inch scratch-resistant, shatter-proof glass display, the Xperia X10 is nicely balanced between the 3.5-inch iPhone 4 and the larger 4.3-inch Motorola Droid X and HTC Evo 4G. At 4.7 x 2.5 x 0.5 inches and 4.8 ounces, it's slightly shorter but thicker and heavier than the 4.5-ounce Captivate. The X10 is also the same weight as the iPhone 4. However, the iPhone 4 has a much more elegant glass and steel design.
On the plus side, the back is comprised of high-grade soft touch material similar to the Droid X, making it easy to grip. There are no buttons on the left of the phone, but to the right are nicely raised volume buttons and a dedicated camera shutter. On top is a power button and flap-covered mini USB port, with a 3.5mm headphone jack wedged between. For novice Android users, the Xperia X10's three physical buttons (Menu, Home, Back) may seem like standard fare, but the lack of a dedicated search button was a nuisance. We found ourselves reaching for the nonexistent search button often while e-mailing and web browsing, and realized just how much we've come to rely on it.
To make matters worse, the small white LED lights between the buttons barely help to distinguish them in dark conditions. And why use a square icon instead of a Home icon for home? Beneath the phone is the microphone, and on the back is an 8-MP camera accompanied by a light that Sony Ericsson wouldn't dare call an LED flash (we'll touch upon this later).


The Xperia X10 has a 4-inch WVGA 854 x 480-pixel resolution display that's big and bright when the setting is cranked to the max. While not as crisp or colorful as the Super AMOLED display on the Captivate or the iPhone 4's Retina display, the Xperia X10 still does a good job of displaying multimedia content such as videos and pictures. Web sites looked good on the device as well, and the extra screen estate came in handy when dealing with the virtual keyboard.


The Xperia X10's sole reliance on Google's default Android keyboard is a bit of a bummer. Typing in landscape mode was fine and mostly error-free, but entering portrait mode felt too cramped. We recommend installing Swiftkey beta from the Android Market as an alternative to Google's keyboard.

The Pink Notebook Trend By Shamina Power

The trend of pink notebooks is a rather new one as it is related to some other changes on the laptop market. Five years ago notebooks were mainly used by business people and some other technology lovers. They were used by people that wanted to be mobile with their computers and were willing to pay more to have a laptop computer.

The status of notebooks changed. The hardware of mobile computers got cheaper and this made it possible for notebooks to conquer new niches. One of the key events had been the Nicholas Negroponte's "One Laptop Per Child" project in 2005. Asus picked up this idea developed the "Asus Eee PC 700" the first so called "Netbook". This mini notebook computer had cheaper hardware but was good enough to surf in the internet, do office jobs and watch movies. By excluding an optical storage as well it got very cheap, small and ultra mobile. Nearly all big laptop manufacturers started to develop their own mini notebook computer.

With this much more affordable netbooks, mobile computing was more interesting for many more people. The focus was no longer on the performance or the specifications. All this small laptop computers have about the same performance and for this the main difference is now the way they look. The mini notebook computers are something that you carry around with you and for this you want to identify with it. It is no longer only a computer it is a fashion statement and lifestyle item and you want to be recognized with it. For this the laptop industry is now willing to bring a lot more fashion into the notebook market. One niche that stands out are sexy pink notebooks that are especially designed for the female taste.

With pink notebooks out, a new big market opened up accessories. There is now a high demand for ladies laptop bags which include pink laptop bags and as well other designer laptop bags. A big change comes with the pink notebook and the pink netbook, it is no longer used only for work or education, it became an item of fashion a lifestyle.
Shamina Power is a Student from Munich Germany. She is crazy about pink electronic widgets especially mobile computers.

HP Envy 17 Review - See This Laptop's Great Features By Nadav Snir

HP has introduced HP Envy 17 and HP Envy 14 almost simultaneously. These two laptops have features that are revolutionary in the laptop market and the Envy 17 could be the laptop to beat.

For people who are fond of big screens, the Envy 17 would be ideal. The screen is 17" and the laptop is packed with a host of powerful features. For starters, the laptop's configurations use HP's core i3 and i5 processors. In addition, this laptop has a DVD burner and an HDMI port and allows for the expansion of RAM up to 8GB.

For a computer with such a powerful processor, the ability to keep it sufficiently cooled can present quite a challenge as experiences with the HP Envy 15 have shown. One of the major complaints about Envy 15 was the amount of heat it generated and HP has addressed this problem in the manufacture of HP Envy 17. To address the issue of excess heat, HP has added vents on the battery slice in addition to repositioning some of the components.

HP Envy 17 is not only a powerful laptop but one that is also very cool looking. Covered in Aluminum, with a glass screen and a backlit keyboard, this laptop looks extremely elegant. For this laptop also, the mouse buttons are integrated into the touchpad. The size might discourage you from carrying it around - smaller laptops are the preference of the majority, and for this reason most people buying this laptop would be doing so to replace their desktops.

Because of its many advanced features and the attention to detail that has been observed in making this product, the Envy 17 is available at a premium price. However, it is possible to purchase the laptop at a discount. By obtaining HP Envy 17 discount coupons, the savings you could make on the purchase price can be quite substantial. Moreover, reading reviews on this product will help you make an informed decision on what to expect from your laptop.

When you buy HP Envy 17, you will benefit from the manufacturer's one-year limited warranty on hardware. Since the company also provides support via email and live chat 24/7, purchasers of their products know they are not alone should the machine develop complications. Moreover, HP has an in-house service through which it sends staff to attend to clients who need repairs or for trouble shooting in the clients' homes.
As you saw in this HP Envy 17 review, the many advanced features of this laptop make it good value for money.

HP Plans to Release a Tablet Running on WebOS By Dan Sparrow

Since the new market of touch screen tables has taken shape, the HP company have always wanted to be one of the top players providing quality products that people would love and buy. However things did not go according to plan and even though they have a promising start with their Slate tablet, they ended up losing the race in front of the wildly popular Apple iPad.

At the beginning of this year HP's Slate tablet was tipped to be one of the strongest competitors for the yet unreleased iPad. But a shot while after the official launch, the Slate did not manage to become popular among users, on the contrary, it started to get negative reviews. The main thing that consumers objected to was the relative slow speed of the tablet and that was mostly due to the operating system which at that time was Windows 7. Shortly after the release and the commercial flop of the Slate, it was taken out of production by HP.

This might have looked like HP had given up on the tablets market and decided to focus on other markets where they already were influential. But this is not the case as HP recently have bought the Palm company for $1.2 billion and as a consequence they obtained all the rights for Palm's very successful operating system WebOS. This is a very important asset for HP, as WebOS was primarily made for smartphones and tablets and has proven to be successful in a long series of different Palm gadgets.

After taking over the Palm company, HP have publicly stated that they plan to release a series of smartphones and tablets. Most probably, all of these future gadgets will employ the use of WebOS as operating system. So HP will definitely attack the tablet market once again but it remains to be seen if they will resurrect the previously unsuccessful Slate or if they will make a new product altogether. It has also been rumored that by the end of this year they'll launch a new tables called the Hurricane, which at least according to it's name, promises to take the tablet market by storm.

File Transfer Service Buyers Guide BY: Dustin Sklavos, Contributor

By Dustin Sklavos

E-mail is a great method for sending text over the Internet, but when it comes to sending large file, you'll likely need a more robust data transfer system. We break down four of the best File Transfer services available today in this buyers guide.

When I'm not writing hardware and software reviews, I'm a filmmaker. My composer has lived on the opposite side of the continent for as long as I've known him, but because of internet technology we're able to collaborate on films without so much as a phone call. I can send him video clips, he can score them and send them back, and I can just e-mail him and tell him "do this, that, and the other." We are by far not the only ones doing this.

Even beyond the arts, oftentimes friends need a specific file from you, a text file, or an image, or whatever. Maybe you need to make a single file or series of files available to specific people. I can tell you that while having your own site and server space can certainly make things easier, but logging into your FTP and oftentimes having to create an HTML file just to link to a file can be a major hassle.

Long story short: multiple sites and services have devised ways for you to get your material into the hands of the people you want it to. I already espoused the virtues of Dropbox previously, but today I bring you four other options for sharing files -- FilesAnywhere, YouSendIt, RapidShare and WeTransfer -- and discuss the pros and cons of each.


Using FilesAnywhere, I got the distinct sense their service was designed for power users and only power users.

FilesAnywhere signupFilesAnywhere service page

Signing up for their service is easy enough, and like many they offer paid usage models that expand their features and give you more flexibility. Unfortunately, compared to the other three services we're playing with today, FilesAnywhere's file size limitation for free users is punishingly small. 25MB per file is generally adequate enough to send a compressed song, or a text file, or a PDF, but severely curtails the service's usefulness.

What's worse, the service is hard to use. I can appreciate a robust service, but the level of abstraction here is poorly handled. FilesAnywhere's interface grossly over-emphasizes functionality, and is needlessly complex. It strikes me as being as obtuse as older Linux GUIs used to be, and I get the feeling that's the kind of user they're gunning for.

Even the number of plans they offer feels needlessly complicated at a staggering seven different account types. This is just unnecessary. Even at the enterprise level, I can only imagine IT grunts having to explain to their technophobic management about why they should go with FilesAnywhere, then having those managers take one look at the site and tell their employees to shove off. I'm all for more power and more features, but it needs to be abstracted far better than it is here.

I may be being too hard on FilesAnywhere. Having what amounts to your own personal hard disk floating around on the internet -- like Dropbox -- is certainly useful. The ability to use the service to send a fax(!) or even receive faxes on a paid account is obscure but handy. You can still use it to just post a file and send people links to download that file. But between the grossly limited file size for free users and the complexity of the service, I have a hard time recommending FilesAnywhere.


After FilesAnywhere, YouSendIt is the only service in our roundup that requires you to sign up and create an account. For our purposes, I created a 14-day trial account of the "Pro" plan.

YouSendIt signup pageYouSendIt service page

As a small pat on the back, I'd like to say that I appreciated YouSendIt not asking me for credit card information for the 14-day trial account. There's a free account you can sign up for, but it's just slightly buried in the "Plans & Sign Up" page; the front page makes no mention of it. That account is very limited with a maximum file size of 100MB, but the "paltry" 100 downloads per file makes up for it somewhat. 100MB is not ideal but at least somewhat reasonable.

What's striking is how open the pricing is for add-ons when you send files. There are just checkboxes with prices next to them, offering extra features beyond just the basic "upload-and-e-mail" service. Truthfully I was a little put off by this, as it felt like an attempt to nickel-and-dime people, but all of those services can be added into your account if you use one of the two plans beyond "Pro."

Where YouSendIt really distinguishes itself from the competition is in the sheer flexibility of the service. There are plug-ins available for Outlook, Adobe Acrobat, Microsoft Office, Final Cut Pro, Aperture, iPhoto, and Photoshop, along with tracker apps for the iPhone and BlackBerry!

Ultimately YouSendIt works as advertised. You upload a file, they send a link in e-mail, and the recipient downloads that file off of the server. I appreciated the simplicity, especially after trying to work my way through FilesAnywhere's feature bloat.


RapidShare may be the most well-known of the services in this roundup, and for a quick "here's this file for you" it really can't be beat. There's no sign-up required, no e-mail address required. You upload your file on the front page, they give you a link that you can then IM or e-mail yourself, or you can enter an e-mail address (or several) and a message and they'll e-mail the link for you.

RapidShare service pageIf you're asking for simplicity I have a hard time finding any way to distill file-sharing down any more than this. Which is why it's unfortunate how hazy things start to really get on the RapidShare site. Having a Craigslist level of simplicity in your page design is fine and appreciated these days, but the design here leaves a bad taste in my mouth. You can sign up for a Premium Account which will offer more of everything, or you can sign up for a Collector's Account, for which no information exists on their site other than to tell you that you accumulate points using it that eventually lead to a free Premium Account.

A warning over the FAQ that its answers might be out of date doesn't exactly instill confidence either. RapidShare as an operation may be simple, but it feels slapdash and there's nothing there that makes me feel like giving them money. As I said before, for basic "here's your file!" RapidShare is pretty excellent, but beyond that it just seems too obscured to be trustworthy. Some clarity on the site would go a long way.


Our last contender is WeTransfer, and that's basically what they do. When I opened their page, my first and most immediate reaction was "holy crap, it's all Flash." The basic, main page that any user is going to see and spend the most time on is done entirely in Flash. Using Flash for your entire front page just seems like asking for netbooks everywhere to burst into flames.

WeTransfer service pageGood thing WeTransfer works well, then. There's no account to sign up for and I don't get the sense there ever will be. WeTransfer has a tiny panel in the center of your browser that lets you send someone (or up to twenty someones) a link to a file of up to 2GB on their server. That link will last for two weeks. The interface is simple and attractive, and the only reason RapidShare beats it for simplicity is because WeTransfer requires e-mail addresses. The flipside is that WeTransfer is, on the whole, easier to use.

But there's that Flash thing. I have no problem with Flash, but doing your site entirely in Flash and then having on the FAQ page "HTML version coming soon" screams "backwards" to me. Advertising is handled by having rotating images in the background, and these images are actually quite attractive. They're not hideous flashing ads or anything like that, just tasteful, textless high-resolution stills. Click the background and you're taken to the advertiser's site. I don't know that this model will work, but I give them points for trying. Still, I'm not sure Flash is necessary to achieve what they've done here, or at least not a browser window full of it.


The interesting thing about this roundup is that ultimately every service acquits itself fairly well for its specific purpose. I don't think we have any major challengers for Dropbox, which will probably remain my weapon of choice for collaborative projects for the foreseeable future.

Of all the services, only FilesAnywhere really operates as net-based storage, and if you're willing to weed through the countless features and figure out which of the seven plans is right for you, I can see it being incredibly useful and powerful. But it's pretty clearly for the power user, and you know who you are. Grandma Millie should steer clear.

YouSendIt and WeTransfer occupy similar space, I think, since they're really e-mail-centric services. If you need a basic means of disseminating files, WeTransfer's a great option, while YouSendIt is much more robust and offers more features.

Finally, RapidShare's best feature is its front page: the ability to just upload a file and then shoot the link out to a few friends makes it ideal for a quick transfer. Anything beyond that I find suspect, and information just isn't as readily available on their site as it needs to be.

What you're left with now are five services that all occupy very specific niches. Of all of them, I think FilesAnywhere tries the hardest to cover all the bases, but even ignoring quibbles with their interface design there is complexity that must be added in order to handle all of those different uses. But there isn't a single authentically bad or silly service in this lot, and if one (or all!) of them sounds like it suits your needs, godspeed.

Google Apps Standard Edition Review BY: Jay Garmon, Editor

By Jay Garmon

Google has made no secret of wanting to oust Microsoft as the premier enterprise software provider on the planet, but can Google Apps really displace Microsoft Office, SharePoint and Exchange -- for free? We put Google Apps Standard Edition to the test in this review.

What's in Google Apps?

Signup page for Google Apps Standard EditionGoogle Apps is a subset of the various free Google web applications that you can assign to a personal web domain. Thus, rather than having an e-mail address at, I can create Google Apps also adds under-the-hood controls you don't get from the usual Google web applications, emulating some of the broader account creation and permission controls of Microsoft Exchange Server and Microsoft SharePoint.

There are ostensibly several different "tracks" for Google Apps, targeting either business, educational institutions, governments or non-profits. For the most part, there are no functional distinctions between these product groups; everybody gets the same set of Google Apps at the same price, but the marketing copy is different. The only difference that matters is that between the free Google Apps Standard Edition and the paid Google Apps Premier Edition.

Deshboard for Google Apps Standard EditionGoogle Apps Standard Edition includes private versions of Gmail, Google Docs, Google Calendar, and Google Sites. Standard Edition is limited to 50 users per domain and roughly 8 GB of storage per user (7GB of mail storage, 1 GB of document storage). Premier Edition throws in Google Video, Google Groups, unlimited users, 25 GB per-user storage, and additional user controls and tech support; it will cost you $50 per user per year.

The quartet of applications in Google Apps Standard Edition are designed to replace the major functions of Microsoft Outlook, Microsoft Word, Microsoft Excel, Microsoft PowerPoint, Microsoft Exchange Server, and Microsoft SharePoint Server. These apps are accessed through the web browser, rather than as desktop applications. This means you'll need an internet connection to fully access your apps, but in return Google Apps can run on virtually any operating system. Each app is assigned to a subdomain of your Google Apps domain, with your private Gmail available at, Google Calendar at, Google Docs at, and the Google Sites intranet platform available at Google Apps user accounts can also access the Google Talk instant messaging client, and can sync with a number of mobile operating systems. Using Google Gears and/or the Google Chrome browser allows you to sync most of your content to a local PC, so even if your internet connection fails you can access most or all of your data.

Bear in mind, the entire design philosophy behind Google Apps is to offer only the major functionality that most users will commonly need. The Google Docs word processor doesn't offer a tenth of the features of Microsoft Word, but Google Docs does include all the text formatting, saving, printing, and sharing options that comprise 90 percent of typical Microsoft Word usage. The same "just what you need" minimum functionality applies to all components of Google Apps. There are no pivot tables, no complex mail-merge wizards, and no mass library of presentation sound effects to choose from. If you're a power user of any proprietary software, Google Apps will not meet all your needs -- at least not out of the box.

What You Can Add to Google Apps

Google Apps marketplace mainpageThe Google Apps Marketplace offers -- either as giveaways or as for-sale products -- a wide selection of third-party web applications that integrate with Google Apps. Need a CRM app that integrates with your Google Apps contact lists? No problem. An expense reporting tool that links to your online financial spreadsheets? You're covered. Project management apps that sync with Google calendar and private Gmail? Take your pick. It's simply a question of matching cost to functionality. Moreover, most of these apps can be deployed to specific user accounts, so you can give your employees just the apps they need and not waste money licensing helpdesk apps for sales leads, or marketing apps for engineers.

You can add data to Google Apps almost as easily as you add third-party applications. If you are presently running an Exchange Server, Google offers an Exchange migration tool to directly transport your existing e-mail archives to your Google Apps mail domain.

Costs and Savings

Strictly speaking, even Google Apps Standard Edition isn't totally free, because you have to purchase a web domain to assign to your Google Apps. This will cost you seven to ten dollars annually, with the latter price being what Google charges you to buy a domain through them. No matter how you slice it, that's still a small price to pay compared with the costs of licensing traditional desktop software, plus any hardware you might allocate to run e-mail or network storage servers.

Google purports to estimate how much money you can "save" with Google apps at In truth, this sales-gimmick is a better illustration of how much Google Apps is worth. Gone Google claims that I saved some $30,000 annually by using Google Apps for my personal domain, I never would or could spend even a tenth of that running my personal domain, but then I'd never set up a seven-gigabyte web-accessible mail account on my own server, with full RAID recovery, or VPN access to my document folder and my personal intranet (which I also wouldn't have set up). Replacing all that functionality with proprietary hardware and software may have cost me $30,000, but that's an argument for how much Google Apps is worth, not how much it saves.

What You Don't Get

Support page for Google Apps Standard EditionThe single most compelling reason to pay the $50 per user per year for Google Apps Premiere Edition is also the single greatest risk associated with Google Apps Standard Edition: tech support. If you're a paying Google Apps user, you get an actual phone number you can call in the unlikely event that your account data is hacked or corrupted. With Google Apps standard edition you're offered a support forum and FAQ setup, which is to say you're on your own to figure out most problems. Google has a very solid track record of uptime and data integrity, but in the worst-case scenario of data loss, Google Apps Standard Edition customers simply can't directly contact Google for help.


Any business with fewer than 50 employees should consider Google Apps Standard Edition. Small to medium businesses are exactly the sort of organizations that probably don't have (and can't afford) the on-staff technical expertise to run a mail server and a helpdesk. Even with the basic functionality limitations of Google Apps Standard Edition, the price simply can't be beat. For $10 per year in domain costs, you can avoid paying for virtually any software license or server hardware. The functionality you lack is more than made up for in the money you don't spend.

A Guide to Gaming PC Specs By Asam Mokonyama

PC gaming has been around for decades, but so has console gaming. Being a simpler platform, many players were drawn to consoles first and many even became veteran players without ever really considering PC gaming. Eventually though, some of the most competitive and hardcore gamers take a peek into the world of PC gaming because of all it has to offer. Some games are available for PC gamers that aren't out for any console, and many never will be. The PC offers a much wider range of controls (with keyboard and mouse) and therefore lends itself to a deeper gameplay experience that consoles can't replicate.
Another thing PC's offer is a breakout from the multi-year console cycle. When a console system first comes out there is generally wide-ranging acclaim for the technological capabilities of the system, but two or three years into its life cycle the technology is noticeably dated and yet the next generation console is still years away from release. This leaves many hardcore console gamers sour on their system of choice, and looking to PC gaming for potential answers.
For the PC gaming novice a common question is, "What's a good gaming PC spec?" Unlike consoles, PC's come with an infinite variety of processor types, CPU speeds, different types and amounts of RAM, and a whole litany of graphics cards to choose from. There is no easy answer to this question, because any answer I give today will be wrong a month from now. Ultimately any new PC gamer needs to learn the lay of the land a bit before purchasing their first system. Surprisingly though, this is much easier than you might think.
Product reviews are your friend. They will both save you money and save you from making purchases that might have disappointed you. Try to check reviews on both tech websites as well as on stores. Surprisingly, price alone is not a good indicator of quality and even something with what seems to be perfect specs on paper may not live up to expectations if there are other issues with it. Ultimately the most important piece of any gaming PC is the video cards. The graphics are the most processor and memory intensive thing about gaming today, so even if you are purchasing a complete system it's a good idea to make sure the graphics card included with the system can deliver solid performance for today's games.
By combining a little bit of research into graphics cards, checking out the specs on a variety of systems offered as gaming PC's, and looking at both professional and user reviews you will be able to make a very educated purchasing decision.

Maintaining Your Laptop By Kathy Mercado

How many times have you been frustrated with your laptop not working fine? You will be encountering problems such as it keeps getting stuck all the time and the browser doesn't upload fast or you are not able to open your files as quickly as you would love to. Or, you want to type a document with MS Word, and no matter how much ever you type the cursor doesn't move fast. What you need to do is to learn how to maintain your laptop to improve its performance.
The first and foremost thing you need to do is keep it dust free. Providing your laptop a good casing would do some good for its enhanced performance. Accumulation of dust inside the fan which keeps the CPU cool could prevent it from functioning properly and slowly it could lead to other problems.
Most importantly, how you carry and drop your laptop matters a lot. You need to be extremely gentle with your hands and electronics are very delicate items. Above all, do not eat in front of your computer. Small crumbs can easily drop in and spoil your keys and other components.
Never keep your laptop near electrical components as the magnetic field generated by the latter can harm your computer. Keep your laptop screen clean and make it a point to dust your computer regularly.
You should also move all the important files to an external disk. This would increase the occupied space which gives the memory to work free and fast. You need to keep updating your applications which you use regularly. The programs and applications which haven't been used for long should be uninstalled and deleted immediately as they affect the performance too.
Last but not the least, use the system defragging option. Defragging improves quality of space in the drive and increases the speed of performance. Following these tips given above can definitely help you improve the performance of your laptop.

Apple iPhone 4

by Mark Spoonauer on June 25, 2010

This time it’s personal. No, we’re not referring to the increasingly testy rivalry between Apple and Google’s multiplying Android army. We’re talking about how much more personal a communicator the iPhone 4 is relative to its predecessor. For the first time ever you can have face-to-face video chats (though for now only with other iPhone 4 owners), and Apple has so vastly improved the camera on its handheld that you'll think twice about using that pocket-size digicam or camcorder to record precious memories. Even the relationship between you and your content—whether it’s the stuff you record, apps, websites, or iTunes videos—feels more personal, thanks to the ultra-sharp Retina display on this device.

When you consider that the iPhone 4 is also the thinnest smart phone on the market and it offers a considerably beefier battery than the iPhone 3GS, it’s hard to find fault with this sequel. Or is it? Monster-size competitors like the Evo 4G and Droid X are breathing down Apple’s neck, and one can’t ignore AT&T’s overtaxed network. Despite some flaws, the iPhone 4 does enough to stay slightly ahead of the superphone pack.


Not only is the iPhone 4 a vast departure from the 3GS’ bulbous plastic backside, it’s also the antithesis of the big Android slabs that have suddenly become all the rage. In fact, the two-tone black-and-silver design looks like a very slim and elegant pocket camera. And we mean slim. At 0.37 inches, no other smart phone on the market has a sleeker profile. The iPhone 4 is also thinner and narrower than the 3GS, though both devices weigh the same 4.8 ounces.

While devices like the HTC Evo 4G and Motorola Droid X have sturdy and functional industrial designs, we wouldn’t call them sexy. The iPhone 4, by contrast, screams luxury; between the chemically hardened glass and little touches like how the light reflects off the ridges of the stainless steel band, this device looks and feels more expensive than its price tag intimates.

This silver band, which Apple claims is forged to be five time stronger than standard steel, wraps around the whole phone. On top you’ll find the power button, 3.5mm headphone jack, and one of two microphones (used for FaceTime calls and suppressing noise). The second mic (for voice calls, memos, and voice commands) is on the bottom along with the speaker and dock connector. A ringer switch and two circular volume controls line the left side, and the hole to access the micro-SIM Card is on the right. The black chassis (white coming soon) has a glossy but classy look and houses the 5-megapixel camera and LED flash.

Too bad Apple didn’t see fit to include a dedicated camera button for launching the app and taking photos. You can’t even program a shortcut for double tapping the Home button, as that’s now reserved for multitasking/switching apps. You also won’t find an HDMI port, which would make it much easier to share the HD footage you record with the iPhone 4’s camera on a big-screen TV. (Here’s hoping Apple or someone else launches an HDMI dock.)

Retina Display

While other smart phone makers are touting larger displays that display more information at once or Super AMOLED technology that’s tailor-made for outdoor readability, Apple went a different direction with the iPhone 4. Its Retina display (so named because the company claims that consumers can’t distinguish individual pixels) emphasizes clarity and pixels per inch. In fact, this handset’s 960 x 640-pixel, 326 dpi screen doubles that of the iPhone 3GS. While the Droid X’s display is nearly an inch larger (4.3 inches), it has a lower resolution of 854 x 480 pixels.

The end result is that text reads as if you were out of a magazine, an effect enhanced by the fact that everything from photos to webpages appear as if they’re painted on top of the display. IPS technology (found on the iPad) delivers superb viewing angles, putting the 3GS and most other smart phones to shame.

Now, the effect isn’t exactly mind-blowing, but we could definitely notice the difference when we had the same New York Times page and weather widget displayed on the iPhone 4 and its predecessor. Text was much sharper, and we could make out more detail in the two same Flickr photos of the Eiffel Tower.

App developers have already started to write or re-write applications for the iPhone 4’s Retina display, including Twitter and EA Sports’ NCAA Football (even the logos seem to jump off the screen). Having said all that, there are some benefits to a larger-screen device. For example, we were able to make out more text on The New York Times homepage on the 4.3-inch Evo 4G without needing to zoom in, and watching movies and TV shows is a more immersive experience (despite the narrower viewing angles). 

Apple’s latest smart phone raises the bar for displays, camera quality, and two-way video chat in a remarkably slim and sexy design. (

Increasing New Hire Satisfaction With Electronic Onboarding By Matthew J Sims

Let's flash back a mere twelve months ago. My company was conducting new hire orientations, similar to what I suspect most organizations do. The new hire would sit in the HR conference room for about 3-4 hours reviewing policies, manually completing forms, realizing they didn't bring the proper identification required for the I-9 form, calling home to get the bank account information for their direct deposit form and so on. Seldom did the new hires show up with everything they needed to "hit the ground running", and they seldom knew what to expect on their first day. Comments made on new hire surveys reflected a broken process and a general dissatisfaction with our onboarding process. To make matters worse, managers rarely made sure all the proper IT requests were submitted and rarely had the new hire's workspace cleaned, prepared and ready for use. Not a great first impression, is it?
An organizational decision was made to improve the process globally, and it was my task to find the solution. After about of month of research and vendor presentations, we finally decided to pursue an electronic onboarding solution. The goal: improve the new hire onboarding experience, while significantly reducing non-value added orientation activities. As I write this today...mission accomplished!
We have successfully reduced non-value added orientation time by 95%. New hires no longer spend 3-4 hours in the HR conference room, they spend about 30 minutes (a human touch is still required). A local portal for each of our global facilities is housed on the onboarding solution which allows the new hire to walk in knowing just about everything they need to about their new workplace (i.e. cafeteria services, lobby hours, local dining information, HR contact information, detailed benefits information, etc). Since the solution is web-based, the new hire has the ability to review the information from the comfort of their own home. If they fall behind a bit behind on some of the required tasks, the system sends them a friendly reminder that the task due date is approaching. Hiring managers and HR also receive reminders if they fall behind on their assigned tasks.
Additionally, we have been able to eliminate 95% of the paper forms we used to give new hires when they walked in the door. The forms are now available to the new hire electronically, which not only saves some trees, it also gives the new hire an opportunity to review the required information needed to complete some of the forms (i.e. bank account information for the direct deposit form). Our U.S. locations are no longer required to fax new hire information to our payroll entry person, since she is now able to retrieve the information via the system.
Our electronic onboarding system is also utilized for post hire activities. Required e-learning, online pay statement information, a new hire survey and a quality-of-hire questionnaire are all initiated and tracked automatically within the first 120 days of employment. Since we completely manage the content, we are able to enhance the process "on the fly". We also have future plans to utilize the system for offboarding/the exit process. New hire reactions to the system have been positive. We've seen a significant increase in our new hire survey scores, and have been told by several new hires how helpful the system was in getting them prepared for their new position.
If your organization is struggling with implementing an effective onboarding strategy, I highly recommend that you explore an electronic onboarding solution. The product license is probably cheaper than you think, and the implementation process can be relatively simple. Once implemented, I guarantee you will be thinking, "Why didn't I do this sooner?"
