5 Things that iPhone 5 has to surprise you about

Finally iPhone 5 is out there in our hands, and people are coming up with all of their views and opinion that the much awaited and talked about new gadget has to offer.

The iPhone 5 will surprise you in many ways some of the Top 5 can be the following ways.

The weight
Shaving about an ounce off a phone's heft doesn't sound like a lot, and I've always been skeptical of incremental reductions (20 percent lighter!), but the first thing that shocked me when I picked up the iPhone 5 was how light it was, not how thin it was. There's a reason for this: many smartphones boast large screens and sleek looks, but few weigh as little as 3.95 ounces. Most other iPhones weigh about the same, so it feels different immediately.

The beauty of Maps
Whenever you hear that an app is beautiful to behold, especially an app as integral to the use of the iPhone as Maps, it can't help but feel superfluous. Still, try to look at Maps on an iPhone 5 and not feel wowed. Right now, it's the best graphics demo the iPhone 5 has in its stable, and Flyovers feel intensely surreal, even if you're a Google Earth addict. Whether the graphical finesse of the new Maps and turn-by-turn navigation can make up for the lack of more-refined Google search terms, Street View, and public transit directions feels like a dicey proposition, but Maps is undeniably fun to play with.

The speed
In particular, I'm talking about LTE. I'm not a 4G LTE user at home, and I never thought I'd need it in a phone. Still, the wake-up moment for me was when I opted for FaceTime over LTE instead of Wi-Fi because LTE was more than twice as fast as my home broadband wireless connection, and the connection was smoother. It's a seductive draw: would I end up paying through the nose for LTE for its snappy convenience? I've used it far more than I ever thought I would, at least on the review unit. The A6 processor's harder to appreciate right off the bat, but both combined give this iPhone a serious turbo kick.

Lightning doesn't support Thunderbolt
For years, I've wondered when iOS devices would sync via Apple's incredibly fast Thunderbolt port. A new, smaller connector seemed like the ideal opportunity. Then came the name: Lightning. Lightning and Thunderbolt. Yet, the packed-in Lightning cable works via USB. The door could still be open for Thunderbolt (or USB 3.0) in the future. Does faster syncing matter? To me, it does.

Everything changed just a bit
There's no Big Thing on the iPhone 5, but, try to name a part of the phone that hasn't changed. Usually, iPhones keep at least one or two things intact from one year to the next. This year: design, screen, speakers, microphones, cameras, data connection, even connector port and earphones were toyed with. Instead of investing in one game-changer, the iPhone 5's a top-to-bottom tune-up that makes me wonder, just a little bit, what Apple could do to top it next year.

Update your Adobe Flash player immediately, as computers are vulnerable even if they have antivirus software

Adobe issued a critical update to its popular Flash player this week. According to Daily Safety Check, users should update their Flash Player immediately to avoid potential cyber attacks, even if they have antivirus software.

(PRWEB) May 18, 2012

Adobe issued a critical update to their popular Flash Player this week. Daily Safety Check, a computer security firm that fixes security weaknesses on home computers, recommends that users update their Flash Player right away.

"This is what is known as a zero day threat, meaning hackers have already been attacking this weakness," according to Jim McKenney, Chief Technology Officer of Daily Safety Check. "Even if users have antivirus installed and up-to-date, hackers can take over your computer just by visiting a legitimate website that has a malicious advertisement."

"Antivirus is a good tool," according to McKenney, "but on its own antivirus software will not protect you from hackers. Hackers are increasingly targeting security weaknesses in applications like Flash and Microsoft Office, that antivirus just can't protect against." Daily Safety Check provides a computer security service for homes and businesses that updates security weaknesses every day, provides hacker monitoring, alerts users in case of an attack. Plus, it includes state-of-the-art antivirus software for about the same price as antivirus software alone."

To interview Jim McKenney or find out more about computer security issues, please contact media(at)dailysafetycheck(dot)com.

About Daily Safety Check
Daily Safety Check is a next generation computer security company, applying layered security principles to home and business computers.

How to Fix a Redirect Error

fix a redirect error
Trojans and viruses are often the culprit behind website redirects. When your computer has been infected with a virus or Trojan of this sort, every Internet search you conduct is automatically redirected to another undesirable website dictated by the virus or Trojan creator. An antivirus program is needed to fix and get rid of a website redirect error. Windows computers come installed with a program called Windows Defender that scans your computer for harmful files and fixes errors, including redirect errors.

Step1: Close your open web browser.

Step2: Click the Windows orb located in the bottom-left of the screen. The Windows Start menu launches.

Step3: In search box, type Windows Defender from the Start menu and press “Enter.” The Windows Defender program launches.

Safeguard your data against loss!

To safeguard your data from data loss, you need a secure, reliable, and functional and offsite data protection. Some data is also confidential and you don’t want lose it and also don’t want to give permission to access this file without your permission. Here are some points which will help you to protect your all-important user data from loss and/or unauthorized access.

Back up early and often

The single most important step in protecting your data from loss is to back it up regularly. You can use the backup utility built into Windows (ntbackup.exe) to perform basic backups. You can use Wizard Mode to simplify the process of creating and restoring backups or you can configure the backup settings manually and you can schedule backup jobs to be performed automatically.

Use file-level and share-level security

To keep others out of your data, the first step is to set permissions on the data files and folders. If you have data in network shares, you can set share permissions to control what user accounts can and cannot access the files across the network. With Windows 2000/XP, this is done by clicking the Permissions button on the Sharing tab of the file's or folder's properties sheet.

Password-protect documents

Many productivity applications, such as Microsoft Office applications and Adobe Acrobat, will allow you to set passwords on individual documents. To open the document, you must enter the password. To password-protect a document in Microsoft Word 2003, from tool option you can set password. You can require a password to open the file and/or to make changes to it. You can also set the type of encryption to be used.

Use EFS encryption

There are many third-party products available that will allow you to encrypt an entire disk. Whole disk encryption locks down the entire contents of a disk drive/partition and is transparent to the user. Data is automatically encrypted when it's written to the hard disk and automatically decrypted before being loaded into memory. Some of these programs can create invisible containers inside a partition that act like a hidden disk within a disk. Other users see only the data in the "outer" disk.
Disk encryption products can be used to encrypt removable USB drives, flash drives, etc. Some allow creation of a master password along with secondary passwords with lower rights you can give to other users.

Make use of a public key infrastructure

A public key infrastructure (PKI) is a system for managing public/private key pairs and digital certificates. Because keys and certificates are issued by a trusted third party, certificate-based security is stronger.

Hide data with steganography

You can use a steganography program to hide data inside other data. For example, you could hide a text message within a .JPG graphics file or an MP3 music file, or even inside another text file .Steganography does not encrypt the message, so it's often used in conjunction with encryption software. The data is encrypted first and then hidden inside another file with the steganography software.

Protect data in transit with IP security

Your data can be captured while it's traveling over the network by a hacker with sniffer software .To protect your data when it's in transit, you can use Internet Protocol Security (IPsec)--but both the sending and receiving systems have to support it. Windows 2000 and later Microsoft operating systems have built-in support for IPsec. Applications don't have to be aware of IPsec because it operates at a lower level of the networking model.

Virus protection

Protect your computer against viruses and spyware. These are typically sent through email or your browser. Viruses can cause tons of damage to stored data. They can delete files and provide others access to your computer. Be sure to install a quality anti-virus/anti-spyware program onto your computer.Otherwise you can take online virus removal support service from any third party.

Secure wireless transmissions

Data that you send over a wireless network is even more subject to interception than that sent over an Ethernet network. Hackers don't need physical access to the network or its devices; anyone with a wireless-enabled portable computer and a high gain antenna can capture data and/or get into the network and access data stored there if the wireless access point isn't configured securely.

Use rights management to retain control

If you need to send data to others but are worried about protecting it once it leaves your own system, you can use Windows Rights Management Services (RMS) to control what the recipients are able to do with it. For instance, you can set rights so that the recipient can read the Word document you sent but can't change, copy, or save it. You can prevent recipients from forwarding e-mail messages you send them and you can even set documents or messages to expire on a certain date/time so that the recipient can no longer access them after that time.
All above points are the basic guidelines to safe your data from data loss. To solve technical related problem in your computer then you can reach online technical support service desk of V tech-squad at their Toll Free No +1-877-452-9201.

Microsoft unveils Windows 8 for consumer testing

BARCELONA, Spain — Microsoft is for the first time letting consumers try out its upcoming Windows 8 operating system, which it hopes will be used to power a new wave of computer tablets and traditional PCs.
The test “beta” version of the revamped system was introduced at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, the planet’s largest cell phone trade show.
windows8
Microsoft Corp. on Wednesday offered it up free for download, along with free applications in a new “Windows Store.”

Windows 8 doesn’t have the traditional “Start” menu and applications are spread across a mosaic of tiles in a design Microsoft calls “Metro.” seen as an attempt by the company as a scramble to preserve its market share. And executives said it powers up on PCs in eight seconds, much faster than the previous version.

The tiles, which resemble road signs, can be navigated with a finger swipe on the screen or with a keyboard and mouse.

Microsoft executives in Barcelona showed off how users can use their fingertips to swipe in and out of applications, and tilt upright computer screens to a flat position so they can be used as two-person gaming boards or big drawing tablets. A slim laptop had a hinge allowing it to be turned inside out so it could be used as a tablet instead.

The test version was downloaded by people from more than 70 countries as Microsoft gave its presentation about Windows 8, but the company didn't immediately disclose the number of downloads. The software can be downloaded at http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows-8/consumer-preview.
