IT Forum / Digital Persona
« on: June 18, 2012, 08:25:02 PM »
According to the Oxford Dictionary, a persona is the aspect of someone’s character that is presented to or perceived by others and in other words, a role or character adopted by an author or an actor.  A persona can be seen as how we act to others and how we allow others to interact with us. Therefore, a digital persona would define how some other digital entity characterizes us digitally. Moreover, a digital persona is a glimpse of individual’s wishes which is comprised with one’s comfort and reassure. In other words, digital persona is the scale of one’s requirements of an intelligent environment or in a digital territory. On the other hand, a digital persona can be created based on one’s wishes on how they want to configure and manage the smart environment.

IT Forum / iPad Vs Android Tablet
« on: June 18, 2012, 08:17:25 PM »

The two-horse race between Apple's iPad and Android-based devices continues to rage on. Other tablet makers have been left out in the cold, but will Windows 8 disrupt the tablet space?
Research firm IDC expects a surge in tablet shipments this year, and next, with Apple's iPad taking a greater market share at the expense of its Android rival.

Not only will the worldwide tablet market increase to 107.4 million in 2012, up from 69.6 per cent in 2011, the iPad will reclaim some of the market share it lost to Android last year.

This comes just after IDC's parent company, IDG, had forecast Android to outpace iPad sales in the enterprise space within the next 12 months. According to the poll, most tablet users opted for an iPad, but first-time buyers indicated that they would gravitate towards an Android-based tablet.

Talk about mixed signals.

The grip that both Apple and Google has on the tablet market is staggering. The two companies have continued to compete in the tablet space, leaving the remaining tablet makers out to pasture.

Having said that, the slither of red representing "other" tablet makers is the most interesting figure.

In 2011, when there was 'actual' competition outside the race between the iPad and Android-based tablets, we saw rival devices including the Hewlett-Packard (HP)TouchPad and RIM's BlackBerry PlayBook.

Both tablets ultimately sank, the TouchPad's revival notwithstanding.

It's no surprise that in 2012, forecast figures show a decrease in competition outside the two top-ranking tablet behemoths. RIM is expected to drop from 1.7 per cent of the market share to 1 per cent. This follows the departure of the low-end 16GB BlackBerry PlayBook, following poor sales.

IT Forum / The new MacBook Pro displays
« on: June 17, 2012, 11:49:22 AM »
 The MacBook Pro's Retina display does deliver the clarity we've seen from Retina on theiPhone and the iPad. But what's really impressed me is how much more the new screen can actually show on a single display. Even if going big means less than "full Retina" quality, it's still a great benefit.
My new MacBook Pro Retina arrived on Friday, far faster than I expected. I immediately headed for the settings area, to better understand how much more the 15-inch Retina screen could display versus the 15-inch screen on my 2010 MacBook Pro.
One reason I purchased my 2010 MacBook Pro was because at the time, the computer's display resolution of 1,680 by 1,050 was higher than that of any other laptop I was considering then. The MacBook Pro Retina goes beyond that with a 1,920 by 1,200 display resolution, matched by only a few other laptops out there.

How to do:

1. Install the Toastr app here.
2. Run the app.
3. Add a message to float as a reminder when you unlock your phone.
4. Choose whether it should float for 1.5 seconds or 3 seconds.
5. There's a Pro version, which costs 99 cents; the Pro version lets you change position, color, etc.
6. Click "Start toastr" and you're good to go.
7. Now when you unlock your device, your message will appear as a reminder. To change the message or stop the pop-ups, just restart Toastr and make your changes.

Green computing, the study and practice of efficient and eco-friendly computing resources, is now under the attention of not only environmental organizations, but also businesses from other industries. In recent years, companies in the computer industry have come to realize that going green is in their best interest, both in terms of public relations and reduced costs.

2012 Green IT Company Lists and their rankings:

  • 1st Position: Google
  • 2nd Position: Cisco
  • 3rd Position: Ericsson
  • 4th Position: Fujitsu
  • 5th Position: Vodafone
  • 6th Position : Alcatel-Lucent
  • 7th Position: Sharp
  • 8th Position : Softbank
  • 9th Position: IBM
  • 10th Position : HP

2011 Green IT Company Lists and their rankings:

Ranking criteria:

(1) clean up company's products by eliminating hazardous substances; and
(2) takeback and recycle their products responsibly once they become obsolete.

The two issues are connected. The use of harmful chemicals in electronics prevents their safe recycling when the products
are discarded.
