Google’s Nexus 7

5SHARESFacebookTwitter Google has its own cool little tablet called the Nexus 7. It hopes to compete with the likes of Apple in releasing a tablet that is on a similar level to the iPad mini. Nexus 7 specifications 7″ 1280×800 HD display 1.2 megapixel camera (Front camera) 1GB of RAM Quad-core Tegra 3 chip 4325 mAh (Up to 8 hours of active use) WiFi 802.11 b/g/n Android OS 4.1 (Jelly Bean) Micro USB Price: $199 [More info] Although the screen is only 7″ and the only camera (The front camera) is quite poor comparison to the $499 iPad 2’s 5 megapixel camera, for the price of $199, you can’t ask for much more. However, if you just want to use this for browsing the web, then this is the perfect tool. Granted you need to be in a WiFi equipped area to use most of the tablet’s functions, you can in-fact use your phone’s 3G connection to create a WiFi hotspot. That’s really my main concern, as it’s quite troublesome or inconvenient to be setting up a connection like that every time you want to access the internet. I guess the main advantage on this tablet in comparison to Apple’s iPad is that you can connect this to your computer and then you can download films onto it without too much hassle. I really want to buy this when it gets released, but hey, it’ll be released by 2013. I wouldn’t be surprised if they released it by Christmas time to rake in some Christmas sales. I’m definitely looking at this as a serious buy as a gift I’d like to buy for myself. However, at the moment, I think my current smart phone is more than capable of doing the job that I require it to do. Also, the actual tablet is being developed by a Taiwanese company, the large firm ASUS which has created previous “Google phones”. You would really have thought they would have contracted Motorola to develop the hardware for their new tablet, seeing as they bought Motorola for quite an expensive price...

Another new website up!

7SHARESFacebookTwitter I recently bought another website called, Simple Templates.org and I hope to add more designs to its portfolio. I already have a web hosting design, which I had created quite sometime ago. I still need to make a few edits to the site and I think I’m also going to add a blog to the site, to give out updates and web design...

Domain renewals are expensive!

Domain renewals are expensive!

7SHARESFacebookTwitter Domain renewals are expensive! I just renewed 5 of my domain names and that cost me over $50! I guess in the grand scheme of things it doesn’t cost much, since you only have to pay for the domain names per year, meaning most of my domains are mine until I have to renew them next year in 2013. I remember a time when domain renewals were only 7.99 and sometimes much, much lower. Now, it costs an extra $2 for renewal. I guess, as domains become more and more bought there will be no “good” domain names for purchase; unless of course it’s a unique name. In which case, well, there isn’t much of an argument for that although most of the good names are taken, sadly. Oh, and here is some awesome soothing piano music by Nuvole...

Need to find out if your site has been compromised?

17SHARESFacebookTwitter In this day and age security is a concern as there are assholes out there who will do anything to find exploits on your site, no matter how small of a site you are running. I recently came across an awesome website that details any issues with your site that you may have not noticed. Whether that be a javascript line prompting a java applet/download onto those who visit your website etc. The website is called: Sucuri It successfully located some malware, such as the described one above, on my website. I was finding difficulty tracking it, and then finally solved the issue. Although, I still need to look for any back doors, otherwise if I can’t find any or if this issue prompts up again, I’ll likely have to do a full re-install of WordPress. I just had to give a shout out to that website as it proved incredibly...

Secure your website, don’t neglect it!

Secure your website, don’t neglect it!

12SHARESFacebookTwitter I wrote an article about this around two weeks ago, and website security is paramount, especially so when leaving your website unattended for a while. I did this an faced the consequences of having my sites hacked/cracked and I regret neglecting my website in such a way, as it was such a pain to sort this mess out. I lost a lot of my Google rankings in search results, which hit my traffic big-time, however considering I don’t worry about that much it isn’t much of a problem. However, for others who won’t know how to fix an infected site, it is better to totally re-install whatever script you’ve got installed. For example, most of my websites run on WordPress, and when my sites became infected as I hadn’t updated the latest version, the best thing to do was totally re-install my WordPress installation. – This takes care of the following: You can be at ease and know that whatever virus which has infected your site has been removed. So as long as you have totally replaced all your files, other than your images in your WordPress installation. You get rid of any back doors the hacker may have injected into your website because of any script vulnerability. Trust me on this, don’t neglect your website. It is much easier to first take care of your website rather than have to worry about it later, as it will become much harder to ‘fix’ the longer you leave...
