    Building A Consistent Mobile Representation Of Your Website
    One of the constant PITA experiences I have when using the web from a mobile device is the many websites you go to that aren't optimized for the small screen of a Nokia phone, an HTC, a BlackBerry, iPhone or any other mobile device you can think of.

    Permanently Delete All Information From Your Storage Devices
    I learned something new from this interview about how I was unknowingly leaving data exposed so I want to share my AppGap post on Drive eRazer here. We often talk about the new transparency in enterprise 2.0. However, there are times when we need to go the other way and eliminate any access to information. Perhaps you believe the system messages and think that anything put in your trash folder and deleted goes away. Not so. You might need some expertise to find it, but is still there.

    Avoiding Twitter Spammers For Good
    Almost any online service can be overrun by spam and Twitter is proving to be a lucrative field for such activities.  Twitter Search that identifies Trending Topics is a major target here and very recent actions force the question: Should Twitter moderate Trending Tropics to prevent spamming?

    Understanding The Difference Between Linux And Unix Systems
    I was using Sun Microsystems Solaris operating system at school for the last month. I was also told by my professor that it was also Unix operating system. Are Unix and Solaris the same thing? I looked online for screenshots of both and the results are practically identical to each other, as well as the screen I would look at while on-campus. I would like to add Unix and Solaris operating systems to my resume, but I don't know if it would make sense if they are one in the same. Please help.

    State Of C++ Deemed Iffy With "Upside Opportunity"
    Lots of subjects get covered by different "state of" talks. There's the State of the Union address delivered by the president, for example. There's also Conan O'Brien's hilarious "State of the Show" sketch (which he'll hopefully continue in his new timeslot). And for C++ fans, Justin James recently gave his opinion on the programming language's condition.

    Google To Enter The OS Market For Netbooks
    Google certainly doesn't rest on its laurels, that's for sure. They are, first and foremost a search engine, but the success of their search business has fathered so many products that aren't search related at all it's amazing at times. Of course, now that everything is losing its beta status Google needs to get something else in the pipeline that will raise an eyebrow or two.

    ServiceBench: Data Hub For All Supply Chain Needs
    I saw ServiceBench when I presented at the Warranty Chain Management Conference and got a chance to get a more detailed presentation just recently. ServiceBench is aimed at the Service Supply Chain and is now part of NEW (who also presented at the conference). The service supply chain is often very complex because of the number of entities that are involved (i.e. retailer, service provider, manufacturer, TPA) and consumers often find it hard to determine where to go for help or service.

    Developing Good Results For SEO And The End User
    For some people, SEO has always been about this - creating a killer page that deserves to be number 1. Perhaps it doesn't always shine through in the work you do - there are a variety of constraints that can hold you back - money, time, resources or corporate politics to name but a few. But in general, this is the approach that always serves you well. This article looks at some of the traits of a category killing page and how you moving away from the "keyword, keyword, keyword" mentality that SEO encourages can do wonders for your rankings.

    One of the cool new features of the Apple iPhone 3GS is the ability to take videos. Nice, but I can't figure out how to get to the video camera? I know how to take photos, though, so I figure it's related to the iPhone camera (rather obviously, eh?) I have also heard that you can edit the video right there on the iPhone, but I don't believe it. I mean, isn't the screen too darn small?

    Linux May Give Away Netbooks in Risky Marketing Move
    Want a free netbook? Who could refuse? Jim Zemlin, executive director of the Linux Foundation was speaking to a group of Chinese industry leaders, when he discussed the potential of mobile providers selling netbooks for low prices, but receiving a subsidy through users purchasing programs for their machines. It's a similar marketing move to what cell phone carriers do when you sign up for a contract; they give you a free (or drastically reduced) device, as long as you purchase a subscription.
