Instant Messaging Perfectly Integrated with Web Conferencing from Alphalogix. . February 10, 2004

. Posted in Technology

Alphalogix has again upgraded their popular Versona Instant Messaging System by adding the capability to seamlessly integrate with the Versona Web Conference Server, Web-ex, or other popular Web Conferencing Providers.

Orange County, CA (PRWEB) February 9, 2004 -- Alphalogix has again upgraded their popular Versona Instant Messaging System by adding the capability to seamlessly integrate with the Versona Web Conference Server, Web-Ex, or other popular web conferencing providers. Alphalogix has made web conference vendor interoperability extremely easy to set up and manage via their web based administration system.

?Integration between your instant messaging system and web conferencing system should be based on what is right for your business, not which web conferencing platform you IM client supports?, says Bob McCandless, CEO of Alphalogix. ?Although we believe the Versona Web Conference Server is the best choice for web conferencing on the market today, The Versona Instant Messaging System integrates seamlessly with all other leading web conference platforms.?

This level of integration allows for the instant launch of a web conference directly from within the Versona Instant Messaging Client. Supported web conference platforms include:

? The Versona Web Conference Server (a network appliance)

? IBM/ Lotus Sametime

? Webex Hosted Web Conferencing Service

? Microsoft Office Live Meeting (formerly known as Placeware)

? Microsoft Office Live Meeting Server

? And many others

Integration is accomplished via the Versona Instant Messaging System?s web based configuration and administration client. To set up a web conference vendor, a system administrator simply fills out a web based form with the requested information and selects the Web Conference vendor of choice. All Versona Instant Messaging System clients will be updated with the new settings the next time they log in.

This new feature makes it simple for firms to deploy the Versona Instant Messaging System, even if they have already selected another web conferencing solution as their corporate standard. For more information, please contact Alphalogix at 1-800-652-0122 and ask to learn more about Versona Advanced Collaboration Products. You can visit Alphalogix on the web at www. alphalogix. com.

Real Estate Options for Your New Franchise

. Posted in Technology

The location of your franchise is critical to its success in the long-term, and as a franchisee, it's important to take many factors into consideration. Whether it's a shopping mall, an independent site, or a newly renovated building, there are steps involved between selecting the site and signing the papers. When franchisors extend an agreement for you to open your franchise, they also expect to have some participation in selecting the real estate location of your business. Some franchisors will be very specific about the site, while others will offer some examples. Research before selection may include a target demographic analysis, market study, or other consumer-driven data. This will help in targeting the best location for all parties involved.

Some franchisors will look to you for information about your market. They may work with you to review a few different sites before making a final decision. Whatever the case may, by, it's wise to consult with a commercial real estate agent and a lawyer who specializes in leases for your property. These industry professionals can give you strong advice on where to invest your money for your franchise operation, and how strong of a fit it would be for your business. The franchisor will outline in detail what their expectations are in the Uniform Franchise Offering Circular.

As a franchisee, you may need to research the area to find the right fit. Franchisors generally do not take responsibility for a poor location, but may need to approve a site for development. The UFOC will also outline if there is a territorial exclusivity clause included in the contract; this may push or pull you to a particular location. Making sure you understand the franchisor's requirements is essential before any papers are signed.

You both need to feel like you are making the right decision, so communication is also a key part of the process. Working with a real estate broker will help the franchisee find the right location at the best price. Commercial real estate agents are professionals who know the area well; they may also work with your lawyer or attorney to ensure that all of the franchisor's conditions are met, and that you are able to negotiate the property at a fair price.

Franchisors can help you when it's time to review the lease, and set up the specifics of the transaction with clauses and caveats highlighted.

Tools to Protect Sensitive Data from Latest Viruses Threats. . July 19, 2004

. Posted in Technology

Combat the most recent threats to your computer, such as the "Scob" virus and its copycats. Tech Assist Inc, a leading provider of computer security applications and utilities, introduces tools to help prevent virus infections from resulting in identity theft by providing secure data storage for the SMB and consumer marketplace. Hide-A-FileTM, along with KeyPerTM, a unique software/hardware (dual authentication) combination, enables users to safeguard the sensitive data on their PCs, as well as preventing credit card, password, and identity theft.

Palm Harbor, FL (PRWEB) June 29, 2004 -- An effective method of preventing sensitive information from being harvested has become even more important to computer users since the recent outbreak of the "Scob" virus. This virus steals confidential information, such as passwords, online banking information and credit card numbers, from infected computers. Another threat to security comes from the fact that virus transmission is no longer limited to email & network delivery. Virus writers have found a new way to distribute their malicious payload by converting popular websites into virus transmitters.

Tech Assist Inc, a leading provider of computer security applications and utilities, introduces tools to help prevent virus infections from resulting in identity theft by providing secure data storage for the SMB and consumer marketplace. Hide-A-FileTM, along with KeyPerTM, a unique software/hardware (dual authentication) combination, enables users to safeguard the sensitive data on their PCs, as well as preventing credit card, password, and identity theft.

Hide-A-FileTM allows a user to create hidden partitions, with assignable drive letters into which the files to be hidden are simply dragged-and-dropped, copied & pasted, etc., into the protected partition. When the USB CryptoKeyTM (hardware component) is removed, the virtual partitions disappear without a trace, making important information stored within them completely inaccessible. Only the insertion of the USB CryptokeyTM and the password (dual authentication) make the hidden partitions visible again. This combination provides the user with virtually hack-proof, secure storage for financial data, contacts, photos, videos, etc. Any individual who searches the user?s computer without the proper permissions AND assigned USB CryptoKeyTM will be unable to view the partitions and will not "see" the data.

KeyPerTM functionality utilizes the onboard memory of the USB CryptoKeyTM to store vulnerable data, such as Internet resources, passwords and banking information. It also is an effective "Identity Management" tool, because personal information is not stored on the computer but on the USB CryptoKeyTM. By copying and pasting personal information from the USB CryptoKeyTM, keystroke capture programs used for identity theft, such as the "Scob" virus, are bypassed. Unplug the USB CryptoKeyTM and personal information goes with you, wherever you go.

In today's world, you can never be too safe or too secure. Hide-A-FileTM and KeyPerTM effectively eliminate the worry associated with data & identity theft at home and at work.

For complete information on Hide-A-FileTM & KeyPerTM please visit http://www. toolsthatwork. com/hideafile. htm

Established August 1992, Tech Assist, Inc. has become a leading supplier of exclusive enterprise security software systems and computer forensic investigative tools. With a focus on cutting edge technology we have outfitted thousands of organizations with industry leading, best-of-breed applications and services.

Cash Advance Money When You Need It

. Posted in Technology

So you need money today, but your bank account has seen better days. Perhaps you have an emergency you need to take care of, but the money to do so is nowhere to be found. In both of these situations a cash advance may be just what the financial doctor ordered - a way to get the cash you want today without going through the hassle of dealing with banks and credit card companies.

Cash advances typically come in two flavors: You can get a cash advance that you will pay back at a certain period in the future, with a nominal interest charge; or you can get a cash advance against a tangible asset that you own - say an insurance policy or annuity. Either way, you are getting the money you need today instead of having to wait for weeks (or years) down the road to get it. After all, what good does a $10,000 annuity do you five years from now when you need to get your car fixed today? There are a number of cash advance organizations out there who will work with you to find the solution that is best for you.

Typically, many people utilize the services of a cash advance organization that works much like a bank (without all the hassle): You fill out a small application, they process it immediately and the money is put into your account. The big difference is that, unlike a bank, the entire process is usually over and done in a few minutes! Typically, cash advance companies will advance you up to about $2,000 - $3,000 depending our your situation and finances. There are some cash advance companies out there that will loan more based on assets you may own that you want to take an advance on. Typically, such assets include things like insurance policies, annuities or lottery payouts. Many times people may hold such "future value" money items, but need the money for them today - after all, what good is money in the future if you may not even be around then to spend it? Most cash advance companies also offer very flexible repayment options.

You can either pay them back in one lump sum, or break the payments up over time. Some cash advance organizations even offer you the ability to pay the loan back through automatic withdrawals from your checking or savings account, making the process even easier. Almost all of them give you the flexibility to determine what date you want the withdrawal to happen on - saving you from having to deal with potential NSF fees.

So if you find yourself a bit strapped for cash, or just want to take a well deserved vacation and need a few extra dollars, consider checking into cash advance services that are offered both online and locally. You'll find competitive rates, great service and most of all the money when you need it without the hassle of dealing with the bank, relatives, credit card companies - and most of all - your mom or dad!.

The Importance of Your Credit Report

. Posted in Technology

How important is your credit report? Many people do not consider their credit rating as something very important to them in the grand scheme of their life, but there are other people who, understand its great importance, are greatly worried about the issue. The people who should be worried are those who do not put much thought into how their credit report can affect their lives. What do credit reports tell someone? They help to rate the risk that may be involved in lending you money. Lenders want their money and this report can help them in determining whether you are going to pay back the money loaned or not.

A credit scoring process was created to help lenders determine whether you are a good risk or not, ans this number is used to either approve your loan or reject your loan. That is the basic purpose of the credit scoring process, but some more crafty lenders desire to get more loans and so they lend to high risk borrowers, due to the different categories of loans that they offer to you that depend upon your credit score. If you have a lower credit score, then your interest rate will be higher. You can pay up to twice as much as you would pay if you had a better credit rating. There are many different things that you have to use your credit scoring for. This includes loans for cars, homes, education, and any other large purchases.

If you have a low credit score, then it will be very difficult to purchase anything via a loan unless you are willing to pay the high interest rate and payments. If you want to rent or lease a home your credit score may also come into play. Landlords want some assurance that you will pay your rent on time and this credit score can help you to show them that you are responsible. Keeping your credit score at a good level will allow you to find a quality home or apartment.

Some employers also use credit records to help determine whether they want to hire you or not. Most employers believe that there is a connection between a healthy credit report and the reliability of their future employee. This seems a little far-fetched, but many companies are moving this way regardless. That is just a few of the reasons that you should keep an eye on your credit record.

Our Wi-Fi Internet System is designed specifically to get multiple users on-line fast and earn us profits. Users simply turn on their wireless device, click on their web browser, select their method of payment or log-in as a member, and they're surfing. It's just that easy.

ASC International Holdings, LLC is seeking to fund our WiFi business with the help of private investors. We have done this successfully before with other businesses and are now offering you the same opportunity to earn from 15% a year to upwards of 60% a year. (Click here to see projections.)

Our first year goal is to place 500 units in locations throughout the United States starting in the Southeast. Then we have a goal to place an additional 2,000 units over the following 12 to 18 months.

Why don't we go to a bank or lease the equipment? Because banks won't take any chances until we have those 500 units and by that time with the cash flow, we won't need the banks. Leasing does not cover all the cost of setting each unit up in its location.

An investor will be paid a guaranteed interest rate of 15% to 21% APR (not FDIC Insured). The investor will also share in the profits from where the machines were purchased. The profit sharing can add another 12% to 39% or more a year to the return.

The minimum investment is $15,000.

&quot;Pay as you go&quot; Services Key to Making IT Matter for Business. . February 18, 2004

. Posted in Technology

Saugatuck Technology founder Bill McNee presents "C-level" survey data and insights at CFO magazine conference to rebut recent hype on the declining business importance of IT.

New York City, NY (PRWEB) February 16, 2004--Software and services are key elements of IT that enable businesses to differentiate themselves, and therefore will continue to provide tremendous competitive advantage, according to research presented by Saugatuck Technology founder and president Bill McNee.

McNee presented current Saugatuck research as part of a panel debate at CFO Magazine's "Excellence in Finance: Corporate Performance Management" conference in New York City on February 9, 2004. McNee?s remarks rebutted assertions by fellow panel member Nicholas Carr, author of the Harvard Business Review article ?IT Doesn?t Matter,? which suggests that IT is now a commodity, and no longer a strategic resource that can be leveraged for sustained competitive advantage.

"IT definitely matters to business, as both a strategic and tactical set of tools with which a differentiated business strategy can be deployed,? McNee stated. "Unlike commodity IT infrastructure, software and IT services can create sustainable advantages by enabling and supporting business strategies that differentiate firms from one another. They are key elements of IT that allow firms to configure processes, as well as other IT assets, in a way that electric power, telephones and other so-called 'utilities' cannot."

McNee?s remarks were based on recent Saugatuck surveys of CFOs and CIOs regarding the business value of IT and utility computing offerings, including "pay as you go" (PAYG) IT services. Saugatuck's research suggests that "pay as you go" IT services can provide exceptional business value by:

    Enabling a flexible business IT and application portfolio, allowing the enterprise to retain only those assets that enable and support differentiated business strategies; Enabling a continued focus of IT assets on core business value created by the firm; Selectively outsourcing non-value-added IT assets; and Managing those outsourced IT assets cost-effectively, and defensively, to minimize risk.

"While much of IT can be managed defensively, I believe we are only in the 4th or 5th inning in terms of how IT can be used to innovate in business. In this regard, utility computing, especially through 'pay as you go' IT services, is really all about achieving true business differentiation, and focusing on the most important tasks and opportunities at hand," McNee concluded.

PAYG Research

Saugatuck's PAYG research program, entitled "Pay-as-you-go IT: Where's the Business Value?", examines not just the costs and benefits of vendor-provided IT and business services in the emerging "on demand" workplace, but the underlying user business and IT management factors and beliefs used to evaluate, justify, purchase and utilize such offerings. The project was developed by Saugatuck Technology in partnership with CFO Research Services, and is being executed by Saugatuck Technology.

About Saugatuck

The company uses a research-centric consulting model that combines business planning and market assessment with first-hand research of executive technology buyer trends. Founded in 1999, Saugatuck is headquartered in Westport, CT (www. saugatech. com 1-203-454-3900)

Google AdSense CTR Tricks. . August 1, 2005

. Posted in Technology

(PRWEB) July 24, 2005 -- An increase in CTR can mean a lot to AdSense Revenue. To increase AdSense revenue, either you have to increase traffic or increase CTR. If somehow, you manage to triple your CTR just by tweaking the Google AdSense code, that equals three times boost in your traffic. Here are a few tips for increasing your CTR.

What Google AdSense Engineers say:

- An email conversation with a Google Engineer:

?Due to the dynamic nature of Google AdSense, fluctuations in your revenue will occur. Your earnings will depend on a number of factors, including the types of ads being served to your pages, the cost per click or cost per impression of these ads, and your users' click through selections. Regarding ad placement - the best ad format varies from page to page. We've observed that, in general, wider ads perform better because of their reader-friendly format. We strongly recommend putting your users first when deciding on ad placement. Think about their behavior on different pages, and what will be most useful and visible to them. You'll find that the most optimal ad position isn't always what you expect on certain pages.?

- Google Optimization Guide:

For example, on pages where users are typically focused on reading an article, ads placed directly below the end of the article tends to perform better. It's almost as if users finish reading and asking themselves, ?What can I do next?? Precisely targeted ads are just like answering their questions.

https://www. google. com/support/adsense/bin/static. py? page=tips. html

What Webmasters have concluded

Webmasters have very diverse views on how to increase CTR. It largely depends upon the keywords you are targeting, looks of your website, the quality of its content, placement of AdSense ads, page optimization and various other factors. Generally, AdSense blocks wrapped between the quality content works the best. For the websites having poor quality content, placing the Ads before the start of the content works best.

If you develop a poor quality content website, it will likely give you high CTR and clicks, but you will be getting low priced ads and also nobody will like to add your url to their favorites. But if you have quality content, that keeps the visitors glued, you may get low CTR, but you will be getting high priced ads and regular visitors, too.

Proper positioning of ads on your website has direct impact on your CTR. Change the location of the ads and watch changes in your CTR regularly. Try to locate the area of the page where the focus of the visitor can be. Generally, AdSense ads near the quality content or other crucial areas like navigation bar tend to perform better. But it really depends upon the keywords you are targeting, and the traffic you have. As the Google engineers say, more user friendly ads, more widespread tend to do better than towers and others.

The Traffic

AdSense comes after traffic. No traffic, no AdSense. Take a great care of your traffic. Your visitors expect some valuable information from you. Make sure you are providing quality content to them. This will increase your visitors? return back ratio. And only those visitors will return who are lesser targeted to the content you are providing. More targeted users mean more CTR. 85 percent of my visitors add my website urls in their Favorites, and most of them do return.

Install a Website stats monitoring software and regularly look at your web logs, and get a handle on where your traffic is coming from. Try to establish a pattern or relation between your AdSense stats and your traffic stats, so that if there are any marked deviations you can make a judgment on why there has been an increase/decrease and what (if anything) you can do about it.

This will give you new ideas to develop traffic.

Experiments

Experiment and experiment a lot, till you are satisfied with the tweaks you have done to achieve highest CTR. Track your page performance by making channels of ads in your AdSense Control Panel and experiment till you are satisfied with your CTR. Though, each such experiment will make you loose money for a day or two, as Google may take time to adjust with new changes, but it will be beneficial in long run.

Texas Memory Systems Introduces Entry-Level Solid State Disk. . December 14, 2004

. Posted in Technology

RamSan-120 is the first solid state disk with RAID-protected DDR RAM as the primary storage media

Houston, TX (PRWEB) December 7, 2004 -- Texas Memory Systems, Inc., manufacturer of the World?s Fastest Storage?, announced today availability of a new entry level solid state disk, the RamSan-120 ? the fastest 1U solid state disk on the market and the first solid state disk ever to implement RAID (redundant array of independent DIMMs) - protected dual inline memory modules for the highest levels of reliability. The RamSan-120 delivers over 70,000 random I/Os per second and up to 400 megabytes per second of bandwidth. Its 8-gigabyte capacity is housed in a slim one rack-unit (1U) chassis and is ideal for accelerating smaller databases, database logs and email queues. For Texas Memory Systems, known for its high-end systems, the RamSan-120 establishes a new entry level offering for customers of all sizes and budgets.

"Our own tests have shown that a solid state disk like the RamSan-120 can be used to remove I/O bottlenecks that persist even after significant SQL tuning and adding memory to a server," said Donald Burleson, one of the world?s top Oracle database experts and co-author of Oracle Solid State Disk Tuning, a new book on high performance Oracle database tuning. "In some cases, moving to SSD resulted in an amazing 200x performance improvement. Best of all, it's an inexpensive and fast solution to a difficult tuning problem."

Applications that benefit from high performance solid-state disks include OLTP (online transaction processing), OLAP (online analytical processing), modeling, and data acquisition. Typical RamSan users include corporations in the financial, telecom, broadcasting, and e-commerce sectors as well as government, military, and research organizations.

"Solid-state disks are strategically used alongside other storage to accelerate critical applications within the SAN," said Steven Cheung, Managing Director of NetStor Technology Group. "The RamSan-120 is ideal for users who need to accelerate a single large application or several smaller ones and who must work within a tight budget."

The RamSan-120 sets a new standard for non-volatile solid-state disk reliability by introducing the first redundant array of ECC-protected DIMMs. The system works like a hard disk-based RAID. Data is protected and the system continues operating even if an entire DIMM fails. The RamSan-120's high availability architecture also includes a hot swappable power supply, dual batteries to provide power in the event external power is lost, and a backup hard disk drive.

"Entry-level pricing, enterprise performance and the reliability provided by innovative RAID protected DIMMs are a great combination," said Richard Hilken, Managing Director of Reactive Data Solutions Ltd, a Texas Memory Systems' reseller in the UK. "Most entry level systems just result in compromises. We think our customers will be early adopters of this new solid state disk."

The RamSan-120 is as easy to install as an ordinary disk drive system. A single computer can use it with a host bus adapter, or multiple computers can access it on a Fibre Channel storage area network (SAN). Full monitoring and configuration capabilities are available over any browser via a protected Java applet. The RamSan-120 is fully SNMP compatible.

"Solid state disks are used for speed so we wanted to deliver a very fast and reliable entry-level system that would fit within the needs and budgets of more organizations," said Woody Hutsell, Executive Vice President at Texas Memory Systems. "Customers and resale partners can now get both their high-end and entry level solid state solutions from one reliable source."

Texas Memory Systems will be showing the RamSan-120 at Oracle OpenWorld in San Francisco. Oracle experts, Don Burleson and Mike Ault, will be giving regular presentations at the Texas Memory Systems booth on accelerating databases with solid-state disk.

About Texas Memory Systems

Texas Memory Systems (http://www. texmemsys. com) manufactures the World's Fastest Storage?. Their RamSan line of solid state storage is used to accelerate enterprise applications like OLTP databases, batch processes, and data warehouses, modeling and video editing up to 25-times. Founded in 1978, they sell direct to large enterprise and government organizations. They also sell through OEM and reseller partners.

AT&amp;T Wireless Introduces the OGO. . September 28, 2004

. Posted in Technology

All of those messages typically confined to the desktop are about to be unleashed with Ogo(TM) -- a radically new, hip, and affordable mobile messaging device for the masses, particularly teens and young adults. Introduced today and available exclusively from AT&T Wireless (NYSE: AWE), Ogo is the first and only wireless messaging device to provide unlimited instant messaging (IM) and email from all three leading providers -- AOL, MSN, and Yahoo! -- plus text messaging, all in a sleek, simple-to-use device.

At an affordable device price of $99 (after $30 mail-in rebate) with unlimited messaging plans starting at only $17.99 per month, Ogo provides customers with a wireless messaging device priced for the typical consumer. Ogo-ers will be able to experience instant messaging and email services in a dramatically different way than most Americans do today. Ogo gives customers the freedom to stay connected to their online communities while on-the-go.

Ogo's design requirements and all other elements of its service experience were created and directed by AT&T Wireless. While designed specifically for multiple messaging applications, the company expects instant messaging users to be among Ogo's earliest adopters, since the device offers a near desktop-like IM experience. According to figures released by the Pew Internet and Life Project earlier this month, there are currently more than 53 million IM users in the US today, and 24% of them send more instant messages than email messages.*

"With Ogo, we are creating an entirely new category and the next 'must have' device in the consumer electronics space," said Andre Dahan, president of

AT&T Wireless Mobile Multimedia Services. "Unlike many of today's disappointing multi-purpose wireless devices, we created Ogo to do one thing -- mobile messaging -- extraordinarily well. Ogo doesn't pretend to be 'all things to all people,' and is not bogged down by hardly-used features or an out-of-reach price tag. Instead, Ogo offers the most desirable mobile applications, on a smartly-designed device that most people can afford."

Designed to appeal to the youth market and consumers of all ages, AT&T Wireless believes that Ogo may benefit millions of parents who simply want to reclaim their home computers. "With Ogo, parents no longer have to contend with those endlessly long IM sessions of teenagers and twenty-somethings," Dahan continued. "And, today's youth no longer have to choose between 'logging-on' or 'heading-out' since Ogo lets them do both at the same time."

In addition to its messaging applications and low price, Ogo's appealing design and patent-pending technology offers a variety of features to make mobile messaging fun and easy. Ogo's unique clamshell case opens to reveal a large, color screen and full keypad with "hot keys" to all major messaging functions. With the click of a button, Ogo-ers can read mail, compose messages, access IM contact lists, insert emoticons, and view all open messages at a glance. In addition, customers can get themselves up and running on Ogo by simply turning it on and following the on-screen activation wizard -- bypassing the hassle of an in-store activation process.

OGO KEY FEATURES & HIGHLIGHTS

Ogo is packed with features, including:

-- "Clamshell" design unfolds to display large, color screen and

keypad;

-- Full QWERTY keypad and 8-way navigation joystick pad;

-- 4K color display;

-- Compact size and weight: 11.5 cm x 7.5 cm x 2.5 cm (closed) and

4.8 ounces;

-- Special "hot keys" for simple navigation -- including a special

"emoticon" button for inserting emoticons into IM chats and an "Ogo"

button to view all active messages and chats on one screen for easy

multitasking;

-- Instant messaging on all three leading providers -- enables users to

view and conduct unlimited chat sessions with buddies on Yahoo!,

MSN, and AOL instant messaging services;

-- E-mail on all three leading providers -- send and receive unlimited

email from Yahoo!, MSN and AOL accounts;

-- Text messaging or SMS (Short Message Service) -- send and receive

unlimited text domestic messages to and from standard wireless

phones;

-- Consolidated inbox -- view all e-mail and text messages in a

consolidated mailbox or sort by individual account;

-- Special animated features -- Assign unique sounds and visual

animations to different IM friends/contacts so users hear a

different sound when each IM contact comes on-line or sends a

message;

-- Access to e-mail from other select Internet Service Providers and

POP3 accounts at no additional charge;

-- No annual service contract -- automatic credit card payment for new

activations;

-- "Grab-n-Go" self-activation -- on-device activation wizard gets

users up and running themselves.

ON-BOARD WITH OGO

In bringing Ogo to market, AT&T Wireless teamed with a number of world-class technology companies -- from the major desktop email/IM service providers to custom application developers and manufacturers. AT&T Wireless said the combined expertise and services of these companies enables Ogo to provide a complete messaging solution for today's mobile consumers and a truly unique hardware and software platform for the future.

"The Ogo is uniquely designed and ideally priced for the generation that has literally grown up on instant messaging and sees email as their primary mode of written communication," said Himesh Bhise, vice president and general manager, AOL Mobile, America Online, Inc. "We are very pleased to have worked with AT&T Wireless to offer our members and users such a convenient and flexible extension of the AOL(R) Mail and AOL(R) Instant Messenger(TM)

(AIM(R)) services."

"MSN's goal is to bring our customers closer to the people and information that matter most to them. We're thrilled to work with AT&T Wireless to help make this connection real for our customers, even while on the go," said Brian Arbogast, corporate vice president for the MSN Communications Platform at Microsoft Corp. "Whether it's checking their Hotmail or keeping in touch via MSN Messenger, with Ogo, MSN customers will have their families and friends right at their fingertips."

"Yahoo!'s services are essential to the lives of millions of people, and AT&T Wireless' new Ogo gives us another way to be there for our customers when they are on the move," said Doug Garland, senior vice president, broadband and mobile services, Yahoo! Inc. "We are excited to give our loyal consumers a new, easy way to access our leading Yahoo! Mail and Yahoo! Messenger services on the latest mobile device. Ogo is really designed to appeal to young consumers who have grown up using both the desktop and mobile messaging."

After developing the idea for Ogo internally at AT&T Wireless, the company selected IXI Mobile Inc., http://www. ixi. com, to manage overall development and delivery of Ogo's software and hardware based on their PMG(R) (Personal Mobile Gateway) technology. In addition, custom middleware software from OZ,

http://www. oz. com, enables device interoperability between Ogo and the major email and instant messaging service platforms.

Pricing and Availability

Ogo is available nationally for just $99 (after $30 mail-in rebate) at AT&T Wireless stores and via the web at attwireless. com. Monthly services plans start at $17.99 per month and include access to one premium email/IM provider (AOL, MSN, or Yahoo!) and unlimited incoming and outgoing messages. Access to additional premium email/IM accounts costs $3 each, per month. All plans include unlimited domestic text messaging. In addition,

existing AT&T Wireless customers on postpaid GSM(TM) accounts can receive a special $3 per month discount when they add Ogo to their current AT&T Wireless

account. Additional information can be found at attwireless. com/ogo.

Some Questions You Should Ask Your Debt Management Counselor

. Posted in Technology

What services do you offer? Look for an organization that offers a range of services, including budget counseling, and savings and debt management classes. Avoid organizations that push a debt management plan (DMP) as your only option before they spend a significant amount of time analyzing your financial situation. Do you offer information? Are educational materials available for free? Avoid organizations that charge for information.

In addition to helping me solve my immediate problem, will you help me develop a plan for avoiding problems in the future? What are your fees? Are there set-up and/or monthly fees? Get a specific price quote in writing. What if I can't afford to pay your fees or make contributions? If an organization won't help you because you can't afford to pay, look elsewhere for help. Will I have a formal written agreement or contract with you? Don't sign anything without reading it first. Make sure all verbal promises are in writing.

Are you licensed to offer your services in my state? If not, run. What are the qualifications of your counselors? Are they accredited or certified by an outside organization? If so, by whom? If not, how are they trained? Try to use an organization whose counselors are trained by a non-affiliated party. What assurance do I have that information about me (including my address, phone number, and financial information) will be kept confidential and secure? How are your employees compensated? Are they paid more if I sign up for certain services, if I pay a fee, or if I make a contribution to your organization? If the answer is yes, consider it a red flag and go elsewhere for help. Debt Management Plans (DMP) If your financial problems stem from too much debt or your inability to repay your debts, a credit counseling agency may recommend that you enroll in a debt management plan. A DMP alone is not credit counseling, and DMPs are not for everyone. Consider signing on for one of these plans only after a certified credit counselor has spent time thoroughly reviewing your financial situation, and has offered you customized advice on managing your money.

Even if a DMP is appropriate for you, a reputable credit counseling organization still will help you create a budget and teach you money management skills.

Getting Your First Credit Card

. Posted in Technology

You're finally out in the real world and you probably want to buy a car or a house of your own. You might think that it would be easy, considering you don't have any bad credit; but, you don't have any good credit either. You don't have any credit history at all - period. You might think that this wouldn't work against you, but it will.

Future creditors need to see some kind of record that reflects your ability to pay back a loan. Without that many places are reluctant to give you a loan for a car or a house. So what is the best way to begin to establish your credit? You will have to start with getting a credit card and making a few purchases on that to show that you are capable of paying back a loan in a timely manner. When deciding which credit card to start with, you should sit down and evaluate some things about yourself.

For instance, are you someone who procrastinates? Do you have steady income that will allow you to pay the bills? Why do you want a credit card in the first place? It is very important to be honest with yourself when you answer these questions because it is easy to get into a hole that you can't crawl out from. Even if you feel like you are the most irresponsible person on earth, but you still want a credit card, a good one to get is the American Express green card. The Amex card has to be paid off every month, and you may be willing to spend less if you know that there is not going to be a balance you can carry over. Trying to find the right credit card for you can be a confusing process. You have to take into consideration the APR, annual fees and a multitude of hidden charges.

The best place to start is with the APR and compare those. Many people gloss over the fine print because at first glance it seems like a nuisance to wade through. Try to read it anyway.

You will find that there is information in there that will save you money in the long run. Credit companies don't want to hear "I didn't know", not when they can point back to the small print and tell you it was right there when you signed your name to the agreement. When you use your first credit card there are some rules that you should follow.

You should always shred your receipts, and also shred any credit card offers that you are not considering. Do not ever give your credit card number over the phone unless you are the one who initiated the phone call to the company that you are ordering things from, or trying to get a bill paid. Keep the customer service numbers of all of your credit cards in a safe place. Sometimes companies will send you a new card and it will get lost in the mail, an automated system will ask for your information before it will let you proceed, however, if you don't have a customer service number, you will have to wait until your next bill comes in. You would think that calling the store would help, but incompetence runs rampant in all parts of the world.

You may be able to put off getting a credit card for a little while, but in the end there is no avoiding it. The only thing you can do is know your limits and not spend outside of it. With a credit card it is easy to say you'll buy now and worry about the bill later, but you have to make sure you have to money to pay the bill when it does come in.

New Canadian Website Monitoring Location. . September 28, 2004

. Posted in Technology

Dotcom-Monitor has added a monitoring station in Calgary, bypassing Toronto in favor of better monitoring for customers. Dotcom-Monitor is the second major international monitoring company to open a monitoring station in Canada.

Plymouth, Minn (PRWEB)September 23,2004, Dotcom-Monitor has just added Calgary as its newest website monitoring location, bringing executive class monitoring to western Canada.

"A website must respond to customer needs quickly and reliably. Monitoring ensures that the site functions to the customer's satisfaction," says Vadim Mazo, CEO of Dotcom-Monitor. "The Calgary monitoring station will help businesses better assess how their websites respond to customers on Canadian Internet networks."

The Calgary monitoring station is a remotely controlled robot that visits a company's website, performing functions such as surfing, testing forms and simulating shopping cart purchases. Website owners use the results of the robots visits to determine how their sites respond to human visitors in such areas as performance, accessibility and response times.

Remote website monitoring helps owners respond quickly to emergencies (such as pages loading sluggishly or script failures), as well as to make long-term plans to accommodate growing traffic. For example, it is estimated that $20 to $40 billion is lost each year from users who abandon slow loading websites, and the smart owner wants to avoid that problem before it happens.

Global marketers understand that websites respond differently in different parts of the world on different networks. "The website that performs well in California might not perform as well on other networks," Mr. Mazo says. "Monitoring your website from Calgary provides data from Canada, a very large Internet market."

Calgary is the seventh monitoring station in Dotcom-Monitor's global network. The other six stations are in:

? London, UK

? Hong Kong, China

? Minnesota, USA

? New York, USA

? California, USA

? Florida, USA

Dotcom Monitor is an executive class website and network monitoring company, offering top performance services above and beyond the norm in the industry, including website load stress testing introduced in 2004, offered by very few monitoring companies (please see http://www. prweb. com/releases/2004/8/prweb148558.htm).

Since 1998, Dotcom Monitor has been protecting the reputation and profitability of businesses online by bringing together monitoring, reporting, notification, escalation and analysis in the combination best suited to a company's needs. For more details about what is involved in website monitoring, please visit http://www. dotcom-monitor. com/web-site-monitoring. asp.

Before choosing a hosting facility, it is important to answer one question: Who are your primary customers and where they will be coming from?

Right now, it is becoming more common to have carriers and ISPs peer together to serve specific geographic regions. We see this more and more often, especially in Europe and Asia. There are carriers which are better for one region or another, and it is important to place your server on a proper backbone.

For example, Germany has ?KPN? provider, which is excellent for traffic exchange within Germany, but it does not works as well for traffic exchanges with Asia and the US.

Another example is LINX, one of the major UK network access points (NAP), and if your clients are mostly located in UK, it is a good idea to place your server as close as possible to LINX to minimize network latency and the number of hops for end-users. One of Dotcom-Monitor's web site monitoring stations is located in London to help measure performance by UK visitors.

Each Data Center or ISP may carry one or more providers. It is important to choose an ISP that has a proper set of providers to efficiently cover geographic areas for your web site visitors. If not chosen right, the site may have tremendous performance problems for some customers and work perfectly fine for others.

For example, a website hosted in UK datacenter it may work perfect for United Kingdom visitors, but if someone from Germany tries to access the site, the traffic may have to flow initially back to US and only then on to Germany. This requires two un-necessary Trans-Atlantic trips, which will dramatically increase access time for the site in Germany, making the site feel very slow. Dotcom-Monitor sees this scenario on regular bases.

External Monitoring service becomes extremely important for web sites serving diverse geographical markets, especially if performance and uptime are important across the regions. As the owner of the web site, one has to worry not only about the site and the server, but also about the number of external vendors providing connectivity from all parts of the world to the datacenter where server is located.

Dotcom-Monitor. com is one of the few web site and network monitoring services that helps to address this issue. Dotcom-Monitor provides seven monitoring stations spanned around the world. Each of our monitoring locations is carefully picked to cover most commonly-used backbones and NAPs, which are located mostly in main metropolitan areas.

Dotcom-Monitor provides number of tools to help to determine if one region has better or worse response time compared to the others from an end-user point of view. Dotcom-monitor checks if a web site is accessible from all over the world, notifying the owner of there are any problems with providers.

When To Obtain Business Interruption Insurance

. Posted in Technology

Business interruption insurance refers to insurance, which covers the risk of losses a business may suffer because of a temporary closure of the business due to some circumstances like fire or another peril. Business owners who buy this type of insurance get the compensation for lost profits and recurring expenses. Explore all the options and make a wise decision. Insurance providers offer several options. For example, a certain policy reimburses the extra expenses if you need to perform business operations from a new place because of some disaster at the original place. Choosing this kind of an option is an indication of the buyers' foresightedness and good judgment.

How to Buy Business Interruption Insurance The unique character of this type of insurance is that it isn't sold as a separate policy. If you want to purchase it, ask the providers to add onto an already existent property insurance policy. A typical example is a business owner's policy onto which this type of insurance can be added. Before finalizing, make sure to ask the agent if there is any new offer by the providers. Make Sure That You Get Enough Time One important point to keep in mind when buying it is that you should get enough time to restart your company as usual.

A major disaster can damage a company to such an extent that rebuilding business can take more time than you had estimated. The normal waiting period is approximately two days. The waiting period is the time for which the insurance providers do not start making payments. Factors Affecting Price Factors that affect the price include the kind of business, the location, and the degree of ease involved with shifting to a temporary location.

For example, a real estate agency may get a cheaper deal than a restaurant, because the risk of fire associated with it is less than with a restaurant. If you have paid for it and a disaster occurs, the provider will reimburse you an actual amount of money that you would have earned had the business activities not been disturbed. This calculation is done on the basis of your financial records. You also get compensation for the expenses like electricity, because it is a continuous expense whether business is running or not. Don't Think That You Will Never Need It Finally, you should not avoid buying it just by giving an excuse that these situations are hypothetical. You never know when a disaster shall strike, especially when you have to rely on others to perform various duties.

It is better to be safe than sorry.

Mobile Offices for Mobile Workers. . February 06, 2004

. Posted in Technology

There are more than a million mobile workers in the UK that are dependent on time sensitive information. The solution is to create ?virtual? mobile offices for mobile workers which will enable companies to be one step ahead of the competition when it comes to responding to a customer's request.

(PRWEB) February 6, 2004--There are more than a million mobile workers in the UK that are dependent on time sensitive information. This time sensitive information in many cases is either exchanged over the expensive mobile phone network or doesn?t arrive on time when you?re out on the road. This is a common problem and costs companies millions of pounds annually. The solution therefore is to create ?virtual? mobile offices for mobile workers.

This solution can be provided by the company Contact 24/7 from Leamington Spa. It offers a new service that combines networked email services with wireless email functionality aimed at the SME market. Emails can be received and sent with Palms, Pocket PC?s, Blackberries and Symbions. Their solution also networks and hosts the email system of companies, so that a truly synchronized approach can be achieved.

For SME?s especially, email traffic represents a day-to-day problem due to virus threats and Spam. Contact 24/7 deals with these threats by hosting their clients? emails on their twin synchronous servers in a purpose built environment with access via a secure Internet link. This in turn means reliability of the email system, and safety due to latest security technology.

Companies wishing to outsource their email system as well as employing mobile workers can benefit from a staggering Return of Investment (ROI) in the form of downtime improvement, reduction of mobile phone costs and timely responses to sensitive emails. Other benefits include relief from network traffic and less hassle with Spam and computer viruses.

Im@p, Mobil@, N@t and Dat@ are the new wireless and networked email solutions from Contact 24/7. These offers come at a low setup and low monthly subscription cost. In addition, connection charges only occur when downloading or transferring data.

John Draper from Contact 24/7 adds: ?Now is the time for wireless email as the price has become affordable even to the very smallest of businesses. The benefits of having the facility of receiving and sending emails as well as access to the calendar while out on business will be immediately apparent to anyone who spends much of their time out of the office. Returning to a long list of emails after a trip, some of which requiring immediate attention will become a thing of the past and the user will be one step ahead of the competition when it comes to responding to a customer's request.?

Interested parties, wishing to find out more are invited to phone 01926 883333, send an email to This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it or browse the website www. contact-24-7.com.

What You Should Know About Business Phone Systems

. Posted in Technology

A phone system is crucial to any business, especially a small business. As a small business owner you cannot afford the huge billboards, glossy flyers, and expensive websites that large companies employ in order to win customers, nor can you personally visit each of your clients, customers, vendors and franchisees. A reliable business phone system helps you keep in touch with the people that are important to your business. The three major ones are KSU less, Key Systems and Private Branch Exchange. This article explains the different types and the advantages and disadvantages of each. KSU Less Systems The KSU Less Systems are the best option for small businesses.

If you employ less than 10 people, then the KSU Less phones will give you all the necessary facilities. Advantages of the KSU Less System 1.The KSU Less Systems can be transferred to other locations easily, since they do not require permanent electricity sources. 2.The KSU Less System is less expensive compared to other kinds of business phone systems.

3.You can designate particular extensions for different people. 4.Privacy is guaranteed through restrictions on calls to different areas and barriers against anyone accidentally listening to the conversation through another line.

5.KSU less Phones are not routed through a central control box. Therefore, you do not need to invest in additional space and funds to install a central control.

Disadvantages of the KSU Less System 1.Companies selling KSU Less Systems do not provide extensive installation and maintenance support. You need to install the phone system on your own, and take care of maintenance glitches as well. 2.If you are holding simultaneous conversations with two or more people, the conversations may cross each other.

Private Branch Exchange (PBX) If your business has expanded and you need a bigger and more sophisticated system, you could consider investing in the PBX system. While the PBX is more expensive than the KSU Less, it is a good investment if you need additional features that are not there in the latter, of if you employ more than 40 people. Advantages of PBX 1.The vendor provides installation and maintenance. 2.A single phone number as your official contact will reach all employees.

3.Possesses a Web Configuration facility. Key Systems With the Key Systems a central control unit or Key manages functions like dedicated lines for particular conversations. Advantages of Key Systems 1.The Key Systems allow you to call another extension.

2.They are secure against someone accidentally overhearing the conversation on another line. Final Thought When investing in a business phone system, you must keep all the above points in mind.

If you have a small business, you can use the KSU Less System since it is more cost effective. If you employ more than 10 people, then the PBX System should be a good option. The PBX Key hybrids that have been recently launched in the market are also worth a look.

If you need to know more about the advantages of different systems, then you should consult a small business advisor.

Be in Total HIPAA Compliance April 14. . March 1, 2004

. Posted in Technology

U. S. companies of all sizes must be in compliance with the privacy regulations of the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) by April 14, 2004.

(PRWEB) March 1, 2004--U. S. companies of all sizes must be in compliance with the privacy regulations of the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) by April 14, 2004, and HR professionals should be on the alert, says G. Neil Corp.

?If your company offers healthcare benefits, whether your plan is self-insured or fully insured, or if you come into contact with employees? health information for any employment purpose, then you need to be aware of HIPAA,? says G. Neil employment law attorney Ashley Kaplan.

How HIPAA Affects Employers

Even though employers are technically not defined as ?covered entities? subject to the HIPAA privacy regulations, the law has a significant impact on employers, Kaplan explained. For example, employers may perform ?covered? functions if they obtain and use protected health information to administer their own health plan, or are involved in making or reviewing benefit decisions as a plan sponsor.

The HIPAA privacy laws also affect the way employers obtain and use employee health information to make employment decisions, Kaplan noted: ?Employers can no longer obtain protected health information from a covered entity (such as an employee?s doctor) to make employment decisions unless the employee has signed a HIPAA-compliant authorization form.?

Employment decisions potentially affected by this requirement include hiring and firing based on drug test results, determining whether to grant an employee?s request for medical leave, assessing requests for ?accommodation? under the Americans with Disabilities Act, and administering fitness-for-duty examinations for job placement and safety.

Penalties for HIPAA Noncompliance

The U. S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), through its Office of Civil Rights (OCR), investigates claims of HIPAA violations and can impose civil penalties against individuals and companies. These range from $100 for each violation up to $25,000 for multiple violations of the same standard in a calendar year. ?These can quickly add up,? Kaplan said, ?if a company repeats the same violation with respect to multiple employees and multiple incidents.?

Individuals who knowingly violate the HIPAA Privacy Rule and willfully misuse employee medical information can be fined up to $250,000 and be imprisoned for up to 10 years, she added.

?If you come into contact with HIPAA-protected health information to administer benefits or to make employment decisions, you need to review your practices to ensure compliance as soon as possible,? Kaplan advised. ?Failure to do so could be costly.

?Between now and April 14th, you need to get all of your HIPAA questions answered.?

G. Neil, which has specialized in labor law compliance and HR management for more than 15 years, produces an exclusive HIPAA Privacy Answer Kit to help business owners and managers comply with all the regulations. It includes a ?plain English? guidebook, all of the necessary forms, plus a large poster to explain employees? rights under HIPAA.

Canon's New EOS-1D Mark II Digital SLR. . February 10, 2004

. Posted in Technology

CANON'S NEW EOS-1D MARK II DIGITAL SLR DELIVERS ALL-PRO POWER, PRECISION AND SPEED TO SPORTS SHOOTERS, WEDDING AND PORTRAIT PHOTOGRAPHERS

EOS-1D Mark II Camera Doubles Resolution, Burst Rate, Processing Speed and Memory Card Slots; Increases Shooting Speed to 8.5 FPS, Expands ISO Range and Improves Colour Control

MISSISSAUGA, ON., January 29, 2004 - Canada Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Canon U. S.A. Inc., today announced its newest - and the world's fastest - professional digital SLR: the high-resolution, high-speed EOS-1D Mark II camera. This camera establishes new benchmarks for quick response, flexible control, imaging excellence and RAW image management (through included software solutions that rival costly stand-alones and plug-ins) for professional digital photographers whether they are capturing the next "immaculate reception" on the gridiron, or a team of bridesmaids attempting to pick off the bridal bouquet at a wedding reception.

"Having made our mark on photojournalism, sports-action photography, portrait and wedding photography and the world of professional photography overall with the EOS-1D and 1Ds digital SLR cameras, Canon once again raises the standard of imaging excellence, efficiency and ease of use," stated Ian Macfarlane, Vice President and General Manager, Consumer Imaging Group, Canon Canada Inc. "That new standard is called Mark II... Canon's EOS-1D Mark II digital camera."

The Prodigious Pro Digital

Its new 8.2 million pixel CMOS sensor, faster DIGIC* II imaging engine and ability to capture brilliant, eight-megapixel JPEG images at 8.5 fps in continuous bursts of up to 40 frames and RAW images in continuous bursts of up to 20 frames - thanks in large part to new Canon technology's innovative use of DDR SDRAM - make the EOS-1D Mark II the world's fastest pro-digital SLR camera. Building on the success of the 4.1 megapixel EOS-1D with its 8 fps, 21 frame maximum JPEG (or 16 frame RAW) burst capability, Canon doubled the resolution of the imaging sensor, doubled the size of the high speed buffer memory and reevaluated, redesigned and in some cases, actually reinvented the technology that makes the new EOS-1D Mark II camera the most reliable, responsive and remarkable professional digital SLR on the market. Key among those speed-increasing innovations is Canon's first use of dual 32-bit RISC CPUs to operate the camera's autofocus separately with one dedicated to detecting focus while the second controls the lens drive.

Able to stand up to real world conditions in the field, on the sidelines or in the studio, the Mark II camera's exterior and chassis are constructed of a rugged yet lightweight and weather-resistant magnesium alloy. Its shutter is durability-tested to 200,000 exposures (50,000 more than on the EOS-1D), the body is highly weather-resistant with more than 70 gaskets and seals, and the camera's lens mount is made of stainless steel (and is fully compatible with all Canon EF, TS-E and MP-E lenses).

Given its heightened resolution and speed, the EOS-1D Mark II camera is destined to be a mainstay, not only of the sports/photo market - but also of portrait and wedding photographers. In-studio and out, the camera is capable of brilliantly capturing corporate headshots worthy of publishing in the business section or displaying on the boardroom wall and formally posed family pictures framed above the fireplace or adorning an end-table, as well as the romantic even poignant moments as wedding vows are exchanged and the candid often comic antics that can erupt at the reception. What's more, the camera's ability to capture smaller JPEG files simultaneously with large uncompressed RAW files speeds postproduction workflow and makes providing prompt proofs a snap. In addition, Canon's new Digital Photo Professional software is especially designed to speed up the workflow of wedding shooters and provide much more comfortable operation than ever. With the Direct Print function, clients can see a printed image on site.

New and Improved

At the heart of the advancements provided by the EOS-1D Mark II camera is its extra-large, high-resolution, Canon-designed and produced 8.2 megapixel CMOS sensor. Measuring 28.7 x 19.1mm and 34.5mm on the diagonal, the CMOS sensor is comprised of 3520 x 2336 recording pixels, each 8.2 microns square, featuring primary RGB filtration and, like its popular predecessor the EOS-1D, has a 35mm focal length conversion factor of only 1.3x. What's more, the EOS-1D Mark II is the first Canon Digital SLR equipped with the next generation DIGIC II image processor, which permits faster processing of large files with superior color rendering and more precise detail. This new DIGIC II chip is twice as fast as the image processor used in the EOS-1D and four times faster than the DIGIC chip in the EOS 10D and EOS Digital Rebel.

In addition to the EOS-1D Mark II camera's top-end 8.2 megapixel resolution for JPEG and RAW image files, intermediate JPEG resolution preferences of 6.4MP (medium1) 4.3MP(medium2) and 2.0MP (small) are easily selected. JPEG compression settings can be adjusted independently over a ten-step range for each of the pixel resolution levels and freely set on the camera's LCD monitor menu as well. The EOS-1D Mark II camera also marks the debut of Canon's new "CR2" RAW file format standard that eliminates any potential confusion over the use of the TIF suffix found with the EOS-1D and 1Ds. RAW, JPEG and RAW+JPEG image settings are now selectable on the camera's rear LCD panel.

Adding to its speed and flexibility, the EOS-1D Mark II camera is compatible with CompactFlash (Type I or II as well as MicroDrives(tm)) memory cards up to a theoretical capacity of 2048GB, and it features a second card slot for SD cards, allowing for successive or simultaneous recording on both types of media. Like its EOS-1D and 1Ds forebears, the Mark II camera is capable of capturing sound clips up to a maximum of 30 seconds per image.

Evolved E-TTL - E-TTL II Flash Exposure Control Also completely redesigned is the camera's E-TTL flash metering system. Though still compatible with all EX-series Speedlites, the "smarter E-TTL II captures the subject as a "plane" and ensures that images containing various colors and levels of reflection are captured accurately and optimally. The system compares the ambient light with the reflected pre-flash off the subject reported in all 17 metering zones and selects the areas with a small difference to be weighted for flash exposure calculation. This system also eliminates or under weights areas with large difference recognizing them as an extremely reflective object in the background or as a highly reflective subject, smartly ensuring it by considering the distance information data provided from compatible EF lenses. The system similarly prevents over-exposure when photographers lock focus and recompose the shot by considering the flash output level calculated according to the broader distance. The camera also allows users to select an average metering pattern by using its customs function settings.

Enhanced Image Quality and Color

The EOS-1D Mark II camera provides superior color rendition at default settings, reduces false color artifacting and produces less "noise" in low light settings thanks to its DIGIC II image processor and a redesigned state-of-the-art CMOS sensor. The camera also features improved auto white balance control, now done entirely off the image sensor; a new user-set white balance compensation which permits varying the color temperature in amber-blue or magenta-green, or combinations of the two; and new user-set custom Color Matrix and Processing Parameter settings which allow users to select their choice of color space, contrast, saturation and tone. A white balance bracketing option adds shifting in magenta-green or amber-blue. The Mark II camera's new EXIF 2.21 compatible standard for metadata now tags Adobe 1998 RGB color space profiles directly to user-specified images, removing the necessity to assign the color space manually in Photoshop.

Shutter Priorities

Responsiveness and user-directed adaptability are clearly demonstrated in the range of the Mark II camera's shutter speeds -- from 30 seconds to 1/8000, plus bulb (with user-set adjustments of 1/3, 1/2, or full stops). Maintaining (and contributing to) the camera's high-speed capabilities, the EOS-1D Mark II camera has a shutter lag time of just 55ms (adjustable to as little as 40ms via a new personal function) and the mirror "black out" time is approximately 87ms at 1/60 or faster shutter speeds, resulting in easy viewing even during high-speed shooting at 8.5 fps.

Further, Canon developed entirely new circuitry, calculations and algorithms for the 45-point autofocus system. This new, faster AF operation provides faster "read and react" times in One-Shot AF mode and takes twice as many readings between shots as the EOS-1D with moving subjects in AI Servo AF, allowing for more effective sequential shooting. Twin 32-bit processors that control the focus function and lens drive independently accomplish the extraordinary speed of the camera's new autofocus system. The EOS-1D Mark II camera's far-reaching flexibility, durability and reliability make it the digital SLR of choice for action photographers in virtually every environment around the world.

Improved Interface

The camera's brilliant and easy-to-read 230,000 pixel TFT color LCD Monitor (compared with a 120,000-pixel display on the EOS-1D) measures 2.0 inches on the diagonal and provides approximately 100% coverage. Image playback can be automatic after an image has been captured and is also reviewable simply by pressing the "display" button on the rear of the body. The Mark II camera also offers a "single image with information and histogram" that displays separate graphs for each R-G-B color channel in addition to charting the image's overall brightness. Other playback options include single image; a four - or nine-index image and a new zoom display that magnifies the image up to ten times in 15 increments. The camera also offers a video out to TV Monitor feature (utilizing a supplied cable) that is similar to the system introduced on the Canon EOS 10D but was not available on the EOS-1D and EOS-1Ds models.

The camera interfaces with computers via 4-pin FireWire (IEEE1394) at 100 megabits per second (more than twice as fast as the EOS-1D) and features a compact USB port on the side of the body for Direct Printing with compatible Canon Bubble Jet and Card Photo printers as well as many other manufacturers' PictBridge* compatible printers.

The EOS-1D Mark II also supports PTP (Picture Transfer Protocol), a universal data transfer standard that supports direct downloading in Mac OS X as well as Windows XP without the need to install proprietary driver software.

Other Features

The camera's exposure modes include Manual, Aperture-priority, Shutter-priority, Program and Bulb and the ISO range extends from 100 - 1600 in 1/3-step increments (with ISO 50 and ISO 3200 added via the ISO extension option on the Menu). The EOS-1D Mark II camera offers users a choice of 21-zone evaluative metering linked to an active AF point, Center-weighted average metering, partial metering (covering approximately 13.5% of the picture area), Spot metering (covering approximately 3.8% of the picture area) and Spot metering options including Center only or linked to 9 or 11 AF points as well as multi spot metering. The metering range is EV0 - 20 for all patterns at all normal temperatures, and exposure compensation is possible in any Auto exposure mode up to +/-3 stops in 1/3 or 1/2-step increments. Available exposure bracketing options are standard auto bracketing (available through aperture and/or shutter speed) and ISO bracketing which keeps the speed and aperture constant but varies the ISO sensitivity to alter the exposure.

As with the EOS-1D and 1Ds models, the new Mark II features 21 built-in custom functions with an option for up to 27 personal functions which must be chosen and set up using Canon software and uploaded into the camera. New on the Mark II model however is the ability to save custom and personal function menu settings either onto a CF card or an SD card, permitting their installation into another camera or to be called up again in the same camera.

While the NP-E3 nickel metal-hydride power pack on the EOS-1D Mark II camera is identical to the one used with the EOS-1D and 1Ds, the camera's power consumption, hence efficiency and battery life, is far superior at 1200 shots per charge in normal temperatures (23?C/73?F). At 6.1 inches wide x 6.2 inches high x 3.1 inches deep and weighing in at 44.1 ounces (without the battery or memory cards) the Mark II camera is identical in size and slightly lighter than the EOS-1D.

Canon's new RAW file Software

The most significant software solution that is included with the EOS-1D Mark II camera is Canon's breakthrough Digital Photo Professional (DPP) program that offers users high-speed processing of RAW images. Rivaling and even surpassing features of expensive, stand-alone and plug-in RAW image processing programs, DPP streamlines professional photographers' workflow, providing time and labor saving options such as instantaneous RAW image adjustment display and support for. CR2 and RAW. TIF as well as Exif TIFF and JPEG formats. Among the numerous features DPP provides is the capability to save multiple adjustments to an image as a "recipe" that can be reloaded and used again or applied to other images. In comparison mode, original and edited images can be compared side by side or within a single split image.

With rendering speed that is five to six times faster than the File Viewer Utility bundled with the EOS-1D and 1Ds models, DPP is compatible with multiple color space settings including sRGB, Adobe RGB and Wide Gamut RGB as well as Color Management Settings using ICC profiles. Among the array of processing options provided by DPP are color channels, tone curves, exposure compensation, white balance, dynamic range, brightness, contrast, color saturation, ICC Profile embedding and assignment of monitor profiles. Another new feature sure to be embraced by DPP users is the program's ability to allow continuous editing while batches of previously adjusted RAW files are rendered and saved in the background.

The upgraded EOS Viewer Utility/EOS Capture programs bundled with the Mark II permit downloading of images directly from the camera's CF or SD cards to the computer (utilizing the supplied IEEE1394 cable or a peripheral card reader) for use by DPP or other programs, and the EOS Capture program in particular works together with DPP to support tethered shooting with a full range of image adjustments in studio environments. Once images have been adjusted in DPP, a transfer function allows immediate editing in Photoshop or any other imaging program. The Mark II camera's software bundle also includes a TWAIN Driver (for Windows only) and a WIA Driver (for Windows XP only) as well the PhotoStitch program that automatically composites multiple images into a single image.

Together with the EOS-1D Mark II, Canon will offer an optional dedicated accessory known as Data Verification Kit DVK-E2 for image data authentication. Utilizing a Secure Mobile data card and reader, the DVK-E2 quickly scans image files from the EOS-1D Mark II or EOS-1Ds to determine whether they have been modified in any way. This feature is intended to support the use of digital images in legal proceedings and other applications where the authenticity of image data is crucial.

Set for delivery to Canon Canada Inc. authorized dealers in April, the EOS-1D Mark II digital camera carries a manufacturer's suggested list price** of $ 6,800 and the DVK-E2 accessory will carry and estimated list price of $1,200.

Dating Web Sites

. Posted in Technology

Dating web sites are a safe and effective method of meeting someone these days. Why waste you time looking in bars or wherever, when you can go to an online dating site and enter your specifications of exactly what you are looking for in a friend or partner. It's like looking at the menu at your favorite restaurant.

Traditionally you'd have to go out with a person to find out that you don't like this habit or that tendency etc. Using an online dating service you can eliminate those that you know you won't be attracted to. If you're a vegetarian for instance, who wants to go out with some guy or gal that wants to chow down on a big bloody steak? And likewise if you enjoy a meal of lightly fried chicken with mashed potatoes and gravy, you don't want to be getting dirty look from you date who is a vegan.

There is nothing worse than getting 10 minutes into you date with someone that you met after a few drinks in a bar. Sure they were nice and pleasant and seemed perfect when you met them at the corner pub, but they didn't tell you that they lived with their mom and that they didn't have a job. I mean, who would tell someone that on a first date anyway.

Ok I'm sure you are thinking that someone using an online dating site could also lie and misrepresent themselves too, and I'm sure some do. However, by using an online site you can look for a match in many areas of interest or personality. After you have culled through dozen or hundreds of persons and looked at their pictures you can then email or call them to check them out further. Usually after speaking with them you are then able to narrow your search down even more so that by the time that you pick some to go out with you have a fairly good idea of what is going to turn up at your door or at your designated meeting place.

What I do is to keep the first date to a quick drink in a bar. If you don't drink then you can meet in a coffee spot or a book store or any place that there are other person's. You want to keep the first meeting short just in case you want to bust out there as fast as you can. Most if not all of us know within the first few minutes if there will every be any real sparks going off. If not you want to get the heck outta there and not waste your time.

I usually have this clear when I go on a date after meeting someone online. What I mean is that I have an understating that this first date is a short one. I tell them that I don't have a lot of time that day and have to be somewhere else in advance. That way I can dodge out fast if the date is a dud. A friends calls me 30 minutes into the date to act like I'm late for some meeting. Blame it on the person on the phone. If I like the person then I can always say that even though I have this very important meeting to go to, that I'd rather stay there with them. That get high marks.

Hey I gotta get outta here now and go on my next date. Bye.

AUSTIN, TX (PRWEB) February 21, 2004-?Partners in Free WiFi Outplay Starbucks, T-mobile and HP with Free iTunes from SXSW 2004. Partners continue to evolve free Wi-Fi offerings after five months of operating free hotspots in Austin, Texas; Expansion continues in Austin bringing total free Hotspots to 25 independently-owned small businesses such as restaurants, bars, bookstores, coffee shops, and bakeries.

Today, Partners in Free WiFi Austin Wireless and Less Networks join with SXSW 2004 to combine free WiFi and free digital music in Austin, the ?free-est wireless city in the world? and self-proclaimed music capital of the world. The Partners offer Austin Wireless users over 500 iTunes songs?1.5 days of music when played back-to-back?far exceeding an earlier Starbucks/T-mobile/HP offering based on a single CD.

Beginning today until the end of the SXSW 2004 Music Festival and Conference, Austin Wireless users will be able to enjoy hundreds of songs for free while using free WiFi hotspots all over town. Throughout February and March, customers using a Wi-Fi enabled notebook computer while at Austin Wireless locations can listen to performances from the likes of D:FUSE to the Buttless Chaps. The digital music content, powered by SXSW 2004 using Apple iTunes music share is available at no cost to Austin Wireless users who have downloaded the free iTunes player from Apple Computer and logged into an Austin Wireless hotspot.

?Bringing together free music and free WiFi is an exciting opportunity to give WiFi users another reason to support the businesses participating in the free WiFi movement,? said Rich MacKinnon, President of Austin Wireless.

In addition to offering customers of small and independent businesses a free WiFi service, venues are able to offer interesting on-site digital entertainment. Austin Wireless launched its first hotspot in September 2003 using the Less Networks platform. Today, its wireless broadband venues include 25 Austin locations ? giving users high-speed wireless access to the Internet and their corporate intranets.

The Less Networks Free WiFi service made freely available to Austin Wireless and its venues, will also be extended for free to venues, providers, and wireless user groups outside of Austin. The service is currently available in 25 Austin Wireless locations to 3600 registered users. The membership is growing by about 50 per day in Austin alone and is expected to grow to 15,000 by the end of the summer.

?We launched the service in September 2003 with one location, and, given the positive response from our venues and users, we have added approximately one location per week using volunteers from Austin Wireless and services from Partners in Free WiFi businesses,? said Less Networks Marketing Director Lorin Rivers. ?Our users are telling us that offering the free WiFi service at local Austin businesses improves their quality of life in Austin. The venue owners tell us it helps their businesses and keeps them competitive with larger, national chains. Using WiFi shouldn?t have to mean patronizing a coffee chain when you would ordinarily walk to your neighborhood coffee shop down the block. Our users enjoy being able to stay connected for free, while they relax in unique Austin venues. Furthermore, not all WiFi users like to drink coffee. Some prefer beer. WiFi shouldn?t have to mean going to a coffee shop when you?d rather go to a bar. We look forward to bringing free WiFi to new customers in other markets.?

Usage of the Less Networks Free WiFi service at Austin Wireless locations continues to grow. With over 100 accesses per day, customers are finding that Austin Wireless venues are the ideal place to catch-up on work or email whether sipping on a cappuccino, or a beer.

To log into the Less Networks Free WiFi service and establish a connection, customers with a Wi-Fi (802.11b) enabled notebook computer, Tablet PC or Pocket PC simply need to launch their Internet browser from within a participating Austin Wireless location and log in. The Less Networks Free WiFi service is backed by high-speed broadband connections that are reliable and fast enough to accommodate the full spectrum of applications from checking e-mail to rich multimedia video. Austin Wireless window signs are visible near the entrance of all participating locations. A complete list of locations can be found by visiting the Austin Wireless hotspot finder on www. austinwirelesscity. org.
