The Almighty Cloud on March 23, 2012

Cloud computing seems to be on the tip of everyone’s tongue, but not everyone knows exactly what it is. Simply put, it’s an internet-based way of computing without having any on-site machinery. Millions of people have been using public versions of the cloud for years, every time they log on to their email accounts. They have all types of messages and information stored in their inbox, but don’t have a server tucked away under their bed. All the computing and is done in some remote location, giving you access to your email anywhere you can get online. This is the basic … Read More

ThinkPad VS Macbook by Chris Hustrulid on March 23, 2012

My wife is visiting her twin sister in Austin, TX while my kindergartner is on spring break. I received a frantic call from her. “Someone”, “somehow” spilled liquid on her sister’s brand new MacBook Pro.  I told her to not worry, these days high end laptops have spill resistant keyboards.  Turn it off.  Unplug it.  Remove the battery and let it dry for a good 48 hours.  48 hours later my phone rang.   On the other end was my wife holding a $4000.00 brick. Was I wrong?  No way, I cannot be mistaken.  I searched out the truth … Read More

Are you ready for windows 8? by Lou Torres on March 8, 2012

Plenty of people will want to try out Windows 8 themselves to decide whether it’s another hit like Windows 7 or a repeat of the Vista mess. So, where do you get it, how do you install it You have questions? We have the answers. Some of them, anyway. Where do I get it?

The setup file will, in turn, download the rest of … Read More

Hoverboard from Back to the Future now available for pre-order by Joe Marquez on March 8, 2012

Have you been impatiently awaiting the arrival of the Mattel Hoverboard from Back to the Future 2? If so, we have some terrific news for you: The device is currently available for pre-order. The officially licensed 28″ by 8″ hoverboard won’t actually float in air, which will no doubt be the biggest sticking point among those impatiently awaiting the device’s arrival. It does, however, come with pads that let it glide across your floors as frictionlessly as possible. The board also makes “whooshing” sounds, sampled directly from the hoverboard in the movie. As you’d expect from a toy of the future, … Read More

A Little More on Virtualization and Operating Systems by Jean Weise on March 8, 2012

Operating systems are one of the most common types of virtualization technologies. The operating system can be thought of as one virtual machine implemented in software used to abstract the computer’s hardware resources. Software applications that reside and execute within an operating system use the operating system’s facilities to access hardware instead of directly accessing the hardware, usually through a module called a device driver. Some programming frameworks include a special runtime environment designed to run on top of the operating system. Software written against the framework runs on top of the operating system as well but also strongly relies … Read More

What, How, Why – and Better Direct by Chris Hustrulid on March 8, 2012

In Sales101, you are taught several basic sales tools.  The most effective tool I have acquired is the “WHAT, HOW, WHY”.  Instead of simply selling a product, show the customer WHY they need it. What: What product, service or widget do we sell? How: How do we reach our buyers? Why: What is our purpose, our cause, our belief? Why does are company exist? I do not mean profit, that it a result. Why should customer buy what we are selling? The Why far out-weighs the How and the What. The Why is emotional. Read More
