The advancements of technology – is it necessary to be used for toys and games ?

Toys and games are a huge part of children’s lives growing up. I’m sure you remember your special toys when you were as little as six years old! I’m sure you can also agree that thanks to advancements in technology, toys are completely different nowadays.

Once gaming toys were introduced in the 1990s, it started to add extra pressure on basic soft toys or games. Film companies such as Disney were in demand to provide entertainment in new forms. Read More »

Would you pay for no Facebook advertisements?

Do you remember Facebook back in 2004? Facebook used to be such a simple social networking site, and now it has been integrated within everyday life. In fact, thinking back – it is actually ridiculous to think I have been tied down to a social network site for six years.

It’s not abnormal to hear “I was looking at your Facebook wall”, or “Did you see on your news feed” across a dinner table amongst friends.  In fact, everywhere I look – poster ads, television ads or digital ads – I am faced with the little dark blue Facebook logo. Facebook users used to complain that Facebook would keep updating, becoming increasingly difficult to manage. Read More »

Children and The Internet

As technology is an important part of our lives, it is almost impossible to cut it out of our children’s lives. For starters, children are introduced to the internet at such an early part of their life now that it increasingly harder to prevent them from the dangers at such a young age. I’m sure we can all agree that there are risks linked with allowing children to explore the online world.

It is important for you to make sure they know the risks before going online, and that you enable the parental control settings. There are plenty of ways to protect your children from the internet. Read More »

Daily, Digital content, and our Online Community

At Daily we find it extremely important to build good relationships with our customers. As I’m sure you can see from our Facebook page, we try to encourage all of us at Daily to get involved in discussions. This enables you to see how we interact with each other as well as giving the opportunity to interact with others at Daily.

The troubled pinballing of the Digital Economy Act 2010 around the UK’s judicial processes highlights some rather jumbled thoughts when it comes to the responsibility of service providers for digital content. On the one hand, stakeholders are understandably keen to protect their work and tackle, in this case, copyright infringement. But on the other – how do we achieve effective legislative enforcement in the digital arena? Should service providers take some pro-active responsibility for how their services are used or the content that they house? Read More »

The true cost of lost data in the Public Sector, discussed by our MD, Abby Hardoon

There is a certain sweat-inducing twist in the stomach that is reserved solely for the moment of realisation that digital data has gone, lost to, well, to wherever seemingly priceless information goes.

It wouldn’t be overreaching to say that all computer users will have had their own experiences with data loss at some time or other.  In many personal cases, the loss is relatively inconsequential and can be reinstated with a few minutes of aggravated re-typing but, with the level of individuals’ personal data being stored digitally by our public organisations at an all-time high, mass data loss or data breaches can be an embarrassing and eye-wateringly expensive problem.

Google is not forced to delete data

When someone becomes bankrupt are you are obliged to make it public? This is deemed degrading, and definitely something that one would want to be forgotten. We are in control of our actions, however we are unable to control or predict the consequences of those actions. Furthermore, certain businesses receiving bad press have to face articles that may slander their name. Is it important for us to be faced with this information online, or should one be given the freedom to change it?

Arguably, a company should not be able to hide its flaws if they are important to everyday society. If we were to remove every article online, the facts and figures online will all be a web of hidden truths. We can not suppress free speech, but if we use our free speech online, we can never get it back. For example, when a celebrity uploads a photo or writes something online,  it can never be forgotten. It can be argued that we are all entitled to voice our opinions when we want, and erase them when we don’t want.

Double The Ram with VPS

For those of you like myself who don’t consider yourself to be computer nerds, you may feel like you need simple ways to understand certain computer terminology online.

If I said VPS, would you know what that meant? VPS stands for Virtual Private Servers. By this, a Virtual Private Server is a hosting solution between shared hosting and dedicated server in terms of the features it offers. In other words, the VPS gives you a big amount of your own server resources. This is good when you have your own site as it would be caught in any server issues. Furthermore, it can be agreed that VPS is ideal for developers or resellers. But then again you probably already knew that. Read More »

The new iOS 7 versus its competitors

The ongoing fight between Apple and Samsung is like the constant battle between the two witches in Wizard of Oz..

You start to think, is it really that important to prove yourself.. Can’t we all just continue to live side by side, choosing to love thy neighbour no matter what phone they have? Unfortunately this is not the case. People seem to find the need to show off their gadgets, their new apps and how their phone deems better than yours.

We thought this could all be pushed behind us when Apple launched the new Iphone 5 and Samsung with the s4 Active.  Be warned. This is not the end. Apple’s newly announced operating system apparently takes on Android, Windows Phone, and BlackBerry. I did a little research into how the new iOS 7 compares to what’s already out there: Read More »

How much do you share on the Internet?

The Internet has become its own online world which we all share. Habits like browsing through Facebook or Instagram have become almost second nature to us all.  Everyone has heard about the dangers of the online world and how to be careful as to what we share. For example, I am aware of all the dangers myself.. but I haven’t actually thought about what I actually put online. Have you? One of the problems with living in both the digital realm and reality is sometimes we end up sharing way more than we are aware.

I decided to forget about the privacy part, and think – How much do I actually share to my friends? Do they want to know this information? Read More »

Social media spreading shocking videos?

Social media can be applauded for its way of bringing people together. Social networking sites such as Facebook, is known for its ways of keeping up to date with friends, not missing birthdays and looking through photos of yourself.. (and others!)

Unfortunately, it has not been noted how bad social media can be. Shocking images, videos and hate campaigns circulate through the Internet, and there is nothing to do to prevent yourself from stumbling across it. Facebook is currently dealing with such matters:

Recently, several videos were circulating the site of people  being decapitated. ”We will remove instances of these videos that are reported to us while we evaluate our policy and approach to this type of content,” it said. Read More »
