IT Business Products : Instant Video Uploading—Just Add Memories

Capture life’s events, both big and small—Compact in size but still offering high-quality images, digital camcorders make it easy take still-photos or create movies, and upload them to your computer or television.

Share Your Experiences

The utility of wireless, combined with the newly WIFI and DLNA-enabled camcorders, allow for immediate uploading and streaming.

Gone are the hassles and delays of “post-production.” It’s all about instant access. Now proud long-distance grandparents can watch their grandchild’s first coo via e-mail. Brides and bridesmaids can simultaneously share shopping trips in different cities.

Graduation Frame


Stream Memories to Your TV

To share videos with those closer to home, camcorders that are DLNA-enabled (Digital Living Network Alliance) can stream video straight from the camcorder to a DLNA-compatible computer or television without the need for cables.

A camcorder’s wireless connection allows you to upload photos and videos to your email account, or post them directly on any social networking site, thanks to the touch of a button.

IT Business Products : Tips & Tricks: Moving Everything to a New PC

When you buy a new computer, transferring all of the files, photos, videos and settings from your old PC can be a time-consuming hassle. It doesn’t have to be: Samsung Easy Migration helps make it quick and easy.

Samsung recommends Windows® 8.

Upgrading Made Easy

You bought a new laptop and it’s got all the power, features and flexibility you’ve been wanting. Unfortunately, it doesn’t have the data your old laptop has been happily collecting since the day you turned it on. Your old laptop, a product of years of tweaking and tinkering, has everything set just the way you like it, from the size of your icons to the locations of folders that you frequently use.

Luckily you don’t have to spend weeks reconfiguring all of it by hand. Samsung Easy Migration streamlines and speeds up this process so you can take advantage of your laptop’s new features and enjoy the comfort of having all your content and settings right where they should be.

How It Works

With its simple, point-and-click process, Easy Migration collects your documents, photos, music and even Web browser favorites and transfers them to the appropriate folders on your new PC. When it’s done, you’ll find everything in the same place it was on your old computer. Simply specify the types of files you want to move, and Easy Migration does the rest.

What’s more, Easy Migration quickly transfers your selected key settings from your old PC to your new Samsung laptop along with your files. You won’t have to waste time reconfiguring icons, adding words to custom dictionaries, changing default fonts and tweaking other settings after you upgrade.

Easy Migration has two ways to get the job done. If both of your computers are connected to a network, either wirelessly or via Ethernet or USB, you can move your files without additional hardware. If that’s not convenient, you can instead use a USB storage device, like a thumb drive or portable hard drive, as an intermediary: Easy Migration copies the files to the USB device from the old computer, then copies them from the USB device when you plug it into the new one. If you have a choice, you’ll find that using a wired connection is the fastest way to go.

No matter the method, it’s a simple, four-click process that can be finished in minutes, depending on how much data you have to move.

It’s like having a moving company inside your PC—only one that does all the packing and unpacking, too.

The innovative Fast Start feature on Samsung’s laptops keeps up with your studies and your social life wherever the school year takes you.

2. The Perfect Save

You’ve been working on that paper all day and you’ve lost track of time—don’t lose your work along with it before you run out the door. Just close the laptop’s lid and Fast Start saves both your data and your system configurations, and you’ll find them just as you left them (FYI: hitting CTRL-S is still a pretty good habit to get into).

3. The Presentation Panic

Fast Start lets you cue up a lecture or presentation smoothly and swiftly, without fumbling around in front of the class or asking them to wait. Open the lid and everything you need is ready to go in only three seconds, no panicking required.

4. The Professor Smackdown

5. The Roaming Roomie

Got a dorm roommate with roaming eyes? Keep her from checking out your Facebook wall, tweets or email just by closing the lid…then get back to what you were doing instantly with Fast Start’s three-second startup.

Cyber fraud is big business here

Source: National Cyber Security – Produced By Gregory Evans

Financial fraud is big business, contributing to an estimated $20 billion in direct losses annually. Industry experts suspect that this figure is actually much higher, as firms cannot accurately identify and measure losses due to fraud, says the ASSOCHAM–PwC(PricewaterhouseCoopers) report titled ‘Current Fraud Trends in the Financial Sector’. The report attributes increasing technology-driven transactions in the financial sector as the main reason for growing cyber frauds. Exploiting technology vulnerabilities has become the weapon of choice for fraudsters. Yet another ASSOCHAM – PwC report ‘Evolution of eCommerce in India: Creating the Bricks Behind the Clicks’ says, eCommerce has grown at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 35 per cent in the past few years. The overall eCommerce business, which is valued at $17 billion now, is expected to cross $100 billion over the next five years. As it expands, so will be the incidence of cyber frauds. As of now, the country’s eCommerce industry is relatively small compared with  its size in countries such as the US and China. A big market with high value eCommerce transactions is a rewarding marketplace for cyber criminals. You have to look at some of the cyber-attacks such as Target and Home Depot that […]

Welcome to your privacy nightmare! Is big business getting out of hand with Big Data?

Source: National Cyber Security – Produced By Gregory Evans

“When businesses are allowed to gather personal information, predict your behaviour and make decisions based on it, this is the information wild west. Welcome to the nightmare.” Richard Hollis, director of information security consultancy the Risk Factory, believes that the ability of big data and predictive analytics systems to profile customers is generating “huge problems” in privacy terms for both online, and offline, consumers that are, as yet, poorly understood. He explains: “It’s all about the data these days and everyone wants it – states, governments, businesses. And people don’t understand the implications because they want cheap hotel rooms and the like. But the big question is, who owns the data?” For example, if Hollis went to an online pharmacy to buy some medicine, would his activity information belong to him or the shop in question – particularly if it was going to be used for marketing purposes to personalise offers in a bid to get him to buy more in future? He warns: People are completely in the dark. They don’t know how much their data is worth to companies and they can’t see the negative consequences of a lack of transparency. They don’t understand that companies are in […]

IT Business Products : SSD 101

If the initials SSD fail to make your heart beat faster, you haven’t been following the latest technology news. SSD stands for “Solid-State Drive,” an electronic reinvention of the hard drive. And your PC wants one.

No Moving Parts

Machines with moving parts eventually break down; it’s a law of nature. Old-fashioned hard drives, with spinning platters, moving read-write heads, and fragile magnetic media are a perfect example. That’s why the latest electronic technology is aimed at replacing those clunky hard drives with sleek SSDs—solid-state drives that use nonvolatile NAND flash memory. Dropping an SSD into your PC is easy, especially if you choose a vendor that designs its SSDs to use the same interface as a standard hard disk drive and with the same physical dimensions.

Fast is Good

SSDs access data a lot faster than standard hard drives. For office staffers or students working on a Netbook or laptop that means less time waiting for the computer to boot up, or for data to become available. And laptop warriors will be pleased to note that SSDs use far fewer amps than hard drives. Install an SSD, and your laptop battery may last several hours longer—long enough for you to finish that report before the plane lands.

Fail-Safe Storage

Because SSDs have no moving parts, they have a huge edge over regular drives. For one thing, SSDs are more resistant to shock and vibration than hard-disk drives, with fewer potential points of mechanical failure. Also, SSDs are silent, which makes them great for PCs in living areas. Finally, they use less power and generate less heat, so they don’t require fans.

The Trade-Offs

Of course, SSDs are still more expensive, gigabyte for gigabyte, than standard hard drives. And while a new SSD may offer blazing speed, over time its performance may degrade depending on how you use the drive and how your operating system manages memory writes. Also, cheaper models are significantly slower than top-of-the-line SSD devices. And for the most part, SSDs limit you to much smaller storage capacity than do conventional hard drives – at least for now.

Bottom Line

Prices on SSDs are dropping fast as new operating systems (particularly Windows 7) take advantage of their potentially higher speeds. That means the best time to consider sliding one into your computer is right now.

A hacker cartel is using a mysterious Flash vulnerability to steal sensitive business data

Source: National Cyber Security – Produced By Gregory Evans

Hackers are using a mysterious, as yet undiscovered, Flash vulnerability, to steal sensetive business data from Macbook and Windows users, according to researchers at Kaspersky Lab. Kaspersky Lab revealed the campaign in a threat advisory, warning a hacker group, known as Wild Neutron is using the “unknown Flash Player exploit” to infect companies and private web users with a data siphoning malware. “The initial infection vector from the 2014-2015 attacks is still unknown, although there are clear indications that the victims are exploited by a kit that leverages an unknown Flash Player exploit,” read the advisory. The attacks have reportedly targeted businesses involved in law, the Bitcoin cryptocurrency, investment, IT, healthcare, and real estate. Known targets have been detected in France, Russia, Switzerland, Germany, Austria, Palestine, Slovenia, Kazakhstan, UAE, Algeria, and the United States. Kaspersky Lab director of global research and analysis team Costin Raiu said Wild Neutron’s wide range of targets is atypical and indicates the attackers are significantly more advanced than most cyber crime groups. “The group’s targeting of major IT companies, spyware developers (FlexiSPY), jihadist forums (the ‘Ansar Al-Mujahideen English Forum’) and Bitcoin companies indicate a flexible yet unusual mindset and interests,” he said. The Kaspersky researchers said […]
