Online And Smartphone App Voting Will Bring Us Near Full Voting Participation

How many times have you heard a friend admit they didn’t vote? The excuses are endless. I didn’t like the candidates, I didn’t have time to study the information, I was busy that day, Voting doesn’t matter the system is corrupt, or a number of other diversion tactics from the truth – they were just lazy. Voter apathy is a dangerous disease for a culture, society or civilization, it can cause harm to the city, county, state, territory, or country. Voting is a right in the US, and it is very important to exercise that right. Those who do not vote and don’t believe in the system hurt the system by their failure to participate.

If we had online and smartphone apps to vote I bet participation would be near 100%, and I bet that becomes a reality in the future. Our Think Tank took up this issue and discussed all the aspects of a safe and secure online voting system recently. Lead Think Tanker Cody Hunt stated:

“The increase in voting turn out it will help the idea of pure democracy because in our country we like to have the idea that everyone has an equal say in the decisions our

5 Things to Understand About VPN Speed

The speed of a VPN is an important thing to consider, and may also be a determining factor for many people when deciding whether they should use a VPN at all. Speed really does matter when it comes to the Internet. Even if a VPN provides improved online security and can help get around blocked content, if the service is slow, the overall experience will be far from ideal.

In this article, I will look at several factors that can influence the speed of a VPN, and how they can be mitigated.

1) The VPN Server Location

Typically, establishing a connection with a VPN server closer to your location will result in better speed. This is because the complexity of Internet traffic goes up as the distance between you and the VPN server increases. The more complex the traffic, and the greater the distance data has to travel, the slower the VPN speed.

If you don’t have a good reason for connecting to a particular VPN location, picking the one closest to you is the best option. For example, if you live in Texas and want to log into a US VPN server, use one in Houston or Dallas instead of one in New

Everything You Need To Know About VPN Services

What is VPN? VPN is an abbreviation for virtual private network. It can be defined as the method that is usually applied so as to add to the privacy and the security into the public and private networks, the internet and Wi-Fi hotspots.

VPNs are usually used by different kinds of corporations so as to enable them to protect any sensitive data that they may have. There has however been an increase in the use of the personal VPN option today. This can be attributed to the different transitions that are facing the internet today.

When you use a VPN, then the privacy is improved to a very large extent. The reason why you get better privacy with a BPN is the fact that the initial IP address you may have been using is replaced with one that is provided by your VPN provider. This is a great way for subscribers to get an IP address from the gateway city that they may want, provided that it is offered by the VPN provider. You can use VPN to alter your location. You may be living in New York, but you can use VPN to make it look like you are in London

God Is Speaking Via The Internet and Bringing the World to an End

The Internet is the most amazing piece of modern technology and yet it came about in a simple fashion. During the Second World War the inventive brains worked to develop a decoding devise so that the enemy’s plans could be deciphered. This was not the first as many came before it. After the war employment turned to industry and technology and machines came into their own, along with calculators and such.

The term ‘computer’ was first recorded in 1613 to describe a human. He is possibly the trigger for thoughts that a machine could be developed to do what he did. Over the next 400 years’ various types of machines slowly came into play.

One can see by the series of events that the production of the communication device we now take for granted was part of a plan. As with any invention or progress it doesn’t happen overnight and other things have to also come into play.

Along with the steps required to bring about the Internet others were developed to allow it. Some worked on electrical components, others on the telephone and wireless, still others on construction of cabinets to house them, and finally the technology behind televised images added to

What Is Net Neutrality and How It Can Affect Your Business

The subject of net neutrality has been the topic of many discussions on the U.S. forums and discussion boards since long now. To first understand why many businesses are so upset about the subject, you have to understand what net neutrality is.

What is net neutrality? According to an article in Business Insider, net neutrality prevents Internet providers from dictating the kinds of content users would be able to access online. Instead, Internet providers are required to treat all traffic sources equally. Why is this topic so controversial that the U.S. Court of Appeals had to weigh-in? Because Internet Service Providers (ISPs) like Verizon, AT&T, and Comcast want to charge for use of their networks. Meaning, these providers will have the ability to pick and choose what consumers see online and to then charge content providers.

The internet speed is basically a fixed sum game. If your competition can afford to pay to drive on the fast lane, then by default your small business gets put in the slow lane. The deeper the pockets of the company, the more competition they can speed past on the way to new customers. Right now many small bloggers and start up websites are afforded the

High Speed Internet – Pros And Cons Of Different Types Of High Speed Internet

With so many different types of internet providers out there, it is tough to figure out the best one for your home or your business. The three major differences, in my opinion, are availability, speed, and delivery. I have put together the four main types of internet to help you make the right choice.

Dial-up Internet

Dial-up internet connects consumers to the online world by way of a telephone line.

the pros are that dial-up is available in most areas around the country. People are able to use this type of internet in remote and rural areas. Other types connections are not possible in those areas.

The cons

I believe because it is set up through a line connection, consumers can not talk on the phone and surf the web at the same time. This is a huge problem in today’s advanced world.

DSL(Digital Subscriber Line) Internet

Dial-up uses a physical line, and DSL uses a wireless telephone connection. It connects consumers through telephone network wires.

Pros are DSL delivers a higher speed of connection than Dial-Up. In addition, even though DSL uses telephone lines, consumers can talk on the phone and surf the web.

Cons are that DSL internet speeds are not always consistent. The connection depends on

Asus Router Security

After the setup of our internet routers we often do not think about how secure they are. Some of us may be guilty of rushing the setup process and missing some very important and costly steps. The router produced and sold by ASUSTek is one that I would definitely be aware of. Asus themselves has acknowledged that there are difficulties that may arise if your router is not setup correctly. I am going to give you a few of the many reasons to take your time and set up your Asus router properly.

Some of their routers come with features called AiCloud and AiDisk, that allow users to attach a hard drive to their routers to enable them to create their own cloud storage. Since the release of these routers a complaint from the FTC has surfaced. The complaint states that Asus routers had/have major security issues that allow hackers to affect consumers negatively by obtaining access to confidential information, for example tax documents that people have stored on these cloud services.

If you use an Asus router in your home please consider applying the following recommendations as soon as possible. First off be sure to download the latest security updates for
