The word "disk defrag" is typically used to refer to the Microsoft Windows utility called Disk Defragmenter. It is designed to solve a problem that occurs because of the way hard disks store data. If you have read the article How Hard Disks Work, then you know three key facts about hard disks: Hard disks store data in chunks called sectors. If you imagine the surface of the disk divided into rings (like the rings of a tree), and then imagine dividing each ring into pie-slices, a sector is one pie-slice on one ring. Each sector holds a fixed amount of data, like 512 bytes.The hard disk has a small arm that can move from ring to ring on the surface of the disk.

To reach a particular sector, the hard disk moves the arm to the right ring and waits for the sector to spin into position.Hard disks are slow in computer terms. Compared to the speed of the processor and its memory, the time it takes for the arm to move and for a sector to spin into place is an eon. Stuff You Should Know's First-ever Crowd-sourced Quiz"

Email Marketing and Email List Manager | MailChimp. 1 Million Apple Device IDs Leaked, 12 Million Total Stolen. Facebook to allow ad targeting by email, user ID and phone number. Facebook to allow ad targeting by email, user ID and phone number Facebook appears to be preparing an option for advertisers to target users by email address, user ID or phone number, based on an option that was temporarily visible in the Power Editor tool. Sources familiar with Facebook’s ad plans previously told us that the company was working with some premium advertisers to target audiences by email address, though we had not heard about the UID and phone number options.

These are powerful new opportunities for businesses to reach their existing customers and leads, who may be increasingly difficult to reach through traditional email and telemarketing campaigns. If this test rolls out to all Power Editor users and the Ads API, companies will be able to remarket to people through News Feed and other Facebook ad units. Some Power Editor users temporarily had access to a new “Custom Audiences” tab today. The tab originally appeared next to the “Page Posts” tab, but soon disappeared. Archive | Digg. Blog, v1.

Three has updated the modem it uses for its Mobile Wi-Fi (or Mi-Fi as some people call it) service to the Huawei E585 model, the older one being the 3 Mi-Fi Mobile Wi-Fi (Huawei E5830).

Confused? You shouldn't be, but is it just a number change or is there a reason to ask for an upgrade? If you were to quickly glance at the two side-by-side you would struggle to see the difference when turned off. They are both the same pebble size, both feature a display at the top and a big "3" logo at the bottom and both offer microSD card support, allowing you to expand your storage options. So what actually is the difference? Well the newer E585 now features a far more useful OLED display, detailing a number of key bits of information that help you understand what the hell is going on. It's as if the company had heard us. The good news though, is that the screen actually tells you what is happening rather than just a series of coloured icons.

But it isn't just the hardware that has changed. Verdict. Bank Order Led to Losing Trades. Twitter API.

Facebook IPO Said to Get Weaker-Than-Forecast Demand. Facebook Inc. (FB)’s initial public offering has so far generated lower-than-expected demand from institutional investors who are concerned about the company’s growth prospects, people with knowledge of the matter said.

Some investors expressed reluctance after Facebook said on May 9 that advertising growth hasn’t kept pace with the increase in users, said the people, who asked not to be identified because the process is private. Facebook is also telling analysts that sales may not meet their most optimistic projections, two people said. Facebook executives have another week to market the IPO, set to price May 17, and underwriters are stepping up efforts to drum up interest from large shareholders, one person said. The top end of the price range values the world’s most popular social network at $96 billion, or more than Standard & Poor’s 500 Index members including Walt Disney Co. and Visa Inc.

Making History Slackening Growth Facebook is offering 337.4 million shares at $28 to $35 each. Making the Web Work for Brand Marketers. Learning from the past In the 1950s, brands slowly moved to TV, just as they have started to move online today. In both instances, buying and selling systems improved; audiences and new content quickly moved to the new medium; and the creative possibilities inspired great ad campaigns. However, a key moment for TV came in the 1950 with dramatic improvements in measurement—like ratings and quantitative market research.

Once major brands could see who they were reaching and what impact their campaigns were having, they fully embraced the medium, creating a multi-billion dollar industry...and TV’s golden age began. Making better decisions with actionable brand metrics Unlike the early days of TV, digital advertising is already incredibly measurable.

But as brand advertisers - such as movie studios or consumer goods companies - know, it’s a challenge to measure changes in brand favorability of a movie or whether an online campaign is driving more consumers to the store. More to come. A Look At Google Drive, Google’s Long-Awaited Cloud Storage Service. After more than 6 years of rumors and a long-ago cancellation because “files are so 1990″, Google Drive is finally here. Coming with 5 GB of free storage space, a Dropbox-like desktop sync client, and strong integration with Google’s web apps, Google Drive has a lot to offer. Google Drive is late to the game, but it stands out from the pack with its deep search features and application integration.

Google Drive is the evolution of Google Docs – it actually replaces Google Docs entirely. Google Docs has had the ability to upload arbitrary files for a while, but it was awkward — Google Drive adds a convenient desktop file sync folder. On The Desktop You can download the Google Drive application from the Google Drive website. After you install it, any files you’ve already uploaded to Google Drive (or Google Docs in the past) will download to the Google Drive folder on your computer. If you’ve used Dropbox, Google Drive works just like Dropbox – as does Microsoft’s new SkyDrive application. 4 Things You’ll Love About Ubuntu 12.04. The new version of Ubuntu–12.04, codename “Precise Pangolin”– is officially here, meaning two things: I get to be really happy about new features, and some people get to complain about Unity in the comments.

Horray! It’s been a year since Ubuntu made Unity the default interface, and man: many of you were not happy. I was thrilled, however: in my opinion Unity is better looking and easier to use than any other Linux user interface. Sure: there were some rough edges in that release, but overall I got the Linux desktop I’d been trying to hack Gnome into becoming for years. Heck: in a lot of ways I like Unity better than OS X, an operating system I use a lot. Unity isn’t a tablet user interface being forced on desktop users: you’re thinking of Windows 8. 12.04 improves on Unity’s strengths, and addresses some of your old complaints.

Not sure what Ubuntu or Unity is? Speed First things first: this version of Ubuntu is fast. Press the menu button; see the menu, instantly. The HUD 1. Conclusion.
