Should I Ditch Windows XP for Windows 7

Like the smell of a brand new car the sight of a sleek, shiny, and any new Windows Operating System creates a lot of newsworthy buzz. You may ask yourself this as you look at your computer, “Is it worth it?” The biggest reason you might want to switch to the new Windows 7 is because of your very old and slow computer. If your computer is starting to have hardware problems, and wouldn’t want to be bothered with the hassle of having it repaired you might start looking at new computers in the store.

Then you shouldn’t worry about upgrading to Windows 7, because in the end you’re paying for the looks. All the programs that you were to purchase in the store will still be compatible with Windows XP to a large degree. Windows XP, although being about 7 years old, has built a reputation for being a very reliable s

LinkedIn.com Fails in the Social Media

Linkedin.com needs no introduction. The social networking platform claims to have 135 million users across the world. It is well appreciated for the opportunity it offers to professionals to network with people active in various domains. In addition, recruiters see it as a good platform to look for suitable candidates for different job profiles. Despite all the positives, there is something that does not seem to be working for LinkedIn. The platform appears to have stagnated and is in crying need for a change. Else, failure is imminent. Let's delve deep into this to get the real picture. Perceived reasons for failure 1. Lack of emphasis on further innovation Dynamism drives social media. A complete overhaul of features is more a norm than an exception. The same is not the case with LinkedIn. Networking opportunities form the driving force for this medium but innovation is essential to attract a large number of users. 2. Absence of avenues to engage people for long

Buzzy Bluetooth Webcam

Designer Anoop M has come up with a webcam concept which looks quite pretty. Smart feature about this webcam is it works using bluetooth technology. Currently, this idea is a concept design. Inspired by Robots, the design is well crafted with a camera in front. The ability of the camera to move around after attaching anywhere to your PC is pretty amazing. I still wonder why webcam with bluetooth are not popular. Being wireless will be really comfortable and easy to use. I agree there are many bluetooth webcam's available in market but I don't really think they are meeting the customer expectations. Once everyone believed that bluetooth technology will be our future. But because of bluetooth limitations in data transfer, no one are caring much about it. This buzzy webcam concept looks attractive design wise but not sure about functionality wise because still this is a concept design. Hope this pretty robotic webcam hits markets soon. via
