Today (March 30, 2012) is the day our Facebook pages switch to the timeline layout. Timeline offers photographers new opportunities as well as a little pain. The new banner is nice for photographers to show off their work. My best advice is to keep it simple.
Mikko Hypponen is the Chief Research Officer of F-Secure. He has been working with computer security for over 20 years and has fought the biggest virus outbreaks in the net, including Loveletter, Blaster, Conficker and Stuxnet. His TED Talk on computer security has been seen by almost a million people and has been translated to over 35 languages. A couple of days ago, I received an e-mail from Iran.

Grum, computer security experts say, was responsible for roughly 18 percent of global spam, or 18 billion spam messages a day.

FireEye, a computer security company based in Milpitas, Calif., said it worked with its counterparts in Russia and with SpamHaus, a British organization that tracks and blocks spam, to take down those command and control centers Wednesday morning.
W ith fast-ending sales, stackable coupons and online-only discounts, in-store shoppers often have good reason to question whether the price they see is really the best deal out there. More are turning to a growing roster of price-comparison apps for an answer -- and getting mixed results. Nearly 40% of smartphone owners use their phones for in-store price comparisons, making it the top mobile shopping-related activity, according to Nielsen. And even those with regular cell phones run price checks: During the 2011 holiday shopping season, 19% of consumers used their phone to compare products or prices in store, up from 15% in 2010 and 3% in 2009, according to customer service research firm ForeSee. "It's such a great development for consumers," says Deborah Mitchell, executive director for the Center of Brand and Product Management at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Experts warn, however, that the apps may not always be so effective and some stores are determined to thwart them.

CDs, Records, and Other Music If you were alive before the age of iTunes, you probably have countless CDs, cassette tapes, and records lying around taking up space in your house.

Logos are one of the most important components of a successful brand. They embody a company’s message and display its personality. A logo should be as creative and professional as possible since it becomes the company’s identity and what consumers remember.
I have less than 30 seconds to capture your attention with this post, so here goes: if you read some, most or all of the next 750 words or so, you will know how to write Web copy that is more useful to readers of your blog or Web site. As we reported yesterday visual content is continuing its steady rise in dominance over written content. But that doesn't mean we should give up on good writing: if anything, it means we need to think harder about how we write for online readers. Online Readers Are Different Seems pretty obvious, right?
