The iPhone Revolution

Category: Technology

When the first iPhone came out on June 29, 2007, it didn’t have a keyboard, no copy and paste, had only limited e-mail options and cost $600 a piece. Since then, Apple has sold 217 million iPhones worldwide. The Apple culture is imbedded in our society and the younger generation can’t get enough of it.


The author of iDisorder: Understanding Our Obsession with Technology and Overcoming Its Hold on Us states that “The iPhone has changed everything about how we relate to technology”. He further states that 30 percent of people born after 1980 get anxious if they can’t check Facebook every few minutes. It has become an obsession.

The Cupertino, California based Apple’s revenue increased from $24 billion in 2007 to $108 billion in 2011. Telecommunication companies such as AT&T are also benefitted from the Apple success during this time period. The Apple’s App Store generates more jobs and handsome revenue to many app developers. The App Store currently offers over 650,000 apps that covers almost all aspect of our lives.

In the near future there will be more mobile phones than the world population. The iPhone will continue to enhance our lives and help the humanity during crisis such as natural disasters.

How UbiFi Stacks Up to Satellite Internet

Category: Technology

Unlimited 4G rural Internet company UbiFi has positioned itself to be the ideal rural Internet service provider to countless residents of rural America who have been living without high-speed Internet access for too long. While satellite Internet maintains its popularity because of its wide reach all across the country including highly remote areas, it has noticeable problems that a 4G Internet provider like UbiFi can easily solve.

First, as a 4G LTE service provider, UbiFi is capable of higher speeds than many satellite Internet providers. While speeds may fluctuate due to network conditions, UbiFi’s speeds have the potential to exceed the fastest satellite Internet providers’ usual download speeds of around 15 Mbps. Furthermore, UbiFi can provide service with much lower levels of latency than satellite Internet service providers. Satellite Internet signals have to travel a great distance from outer space to households in rural America, which results in a longer delay in data transmission. This makes UbiFi a good alternative Internet service that is ideal for online gaming, video chatting, and other activities that require low latency.

Secondly, UbiFi can be a good alternative to many satellite Internet services that enforce data caps and charge expensive overage fees. UbiFi’s unlimited Internet service allows users to use data with no fear of emptying their wallets if they use the Internet for too long. This may be a better deal for potential customers who enjoy watching streaming services or regularly using the Internet for entertainment. With all of these things in mind, rural residents may choose UbiFi over even the best satellite Internet service providers, since it may be a better fit for their Internet needs.

What is a web host?

Category: Technology

Blog provided by Electric Kitten

A web server host is a company that provides the hardware and software necessary for hosting a website. This can include renting space on a physical server, providing an online interface to manage websites, or offering tools and applications to make website creation and management easier. There are thousands of web hosts online, so choosing the right one is critical.

Choosing the right web server host is an important decision. Factors to consider include price, features offered, ease of use, customer service quality, and the size of the company’s network and infrastructure. The specific feature set depends on your requirements and your type of hosting, but always look out for critical requirements like redundancy and backup.

Some web server hosts specialize in certain types of websites or applications. For example, some hosts are geared towards small businesses while others focus on more complex deployments involving multiple servers and custom configurations. It’s important to choose a host that has the features you need without overpaying for services you don’t need.

Customer service should also be considered when choosing a web server host provider; after all, things can go wrong with any technology deployment and it’s helpful to have someone you can turn to for help when needed!

No matter which option you choose, be sure to find a reliable web host that can make sure you have as much uptime as you need to make an impression on all potential customers.

Which Local Web Hosting Option is Right for You?

Category: Technology

Blog provided by Electric Kitten

Local web hosting is ideal for businesses that want to take advantage of a web hosting provider located in close proximity to their office or headquarters. Choosing a local web host will make it easier to stay in contact with your provider and ensure your website servers are running smoothly. Furthermore, if your SEO strategy is targeting a local audience, choosing a local web host will ensure your intended demographic gets the fastest loading times, which will boost your search engine rankings.

Your local web hosting provider will likely offer several options that are suited to different budgets and needs. They may offer traditional shared servers, colocation, or dedicated server hosting. Shared servers are most affordable, but have some limitations you should be aware of. You’ll have to share server space with other clients, which means you may run out of server resources like bandwidth. This can result in performance issues and slow loading speeds.

In contrast, dedicated servers are more expensive, but you’ll have an entire server dedicated solely to your website. This will result in the best performance and the most ideal results for your online marketing efforts.

Colocation is one option that gives you more control of the server’s hardware and software. In this option, you are renting space in a data center, but you are responsible for providing and managing your own server.

No matter which option you choose, be sure to find a reliable web host that can make sure you have as much uptime as you need to make an impression on all potential customers. If you’re looking for a Los Angeles web hosting provider, be sure to visit Electric Kitten, a trusted web hosting company that has served Southern California for almost two decades.

What Your Reception Room Furniture Says About Your Company

Category: Home Improvement

Blog provided by Wicker Paradise

There are many ways a company can communicate its brand image to the public. Press releases, social media, and company websites are all valid ways of conveying what your company stands for. But how does a company communicate its values to visitors and prospective partners who visit its office in person?

The first thing most visitors see in an office is likely the office’s reception area. As a result, this room is your company’s chance to make a good first impression. If you have a drab, dry reception room, your visitors may associate your company with dullness. However, if you endeavor to create a warm, welcoming experience, it will put your visitors at ease and make it easier to have constructive discussions at the business table.

As a result, it’s important to choose warm, comforting furniture and décor for your reception area. If your company has a hospitable, down-to-earth image, you might want to use the tropical tones of wicker furniture to set the tone. Furthermore, you should make sure your furniture cushions are not old, misshapen, and uncomfortable. Your visitors will be sitting on those cushions, so you should make sure they won’t feel agitated or distressed after reclining on lumpy cushions.

In light of this, you should make sure to get attractive, comfortable furniture and high-quality replacement cushions when it’s time to replace your old office furniture. Wicker Paradise has an excellent selection of wicker, rattan, and seagrass furniture, along with customizable replacement cushions for your wicker furniture products.

Achieving EDI Compliance

Category: Technology

Blog provided by ACT Data Services, Inc. 1-800-ACT-DATA

Is your business EDI compliant? If you have any sort of interactions with trading partners, it should be. EDI has become a necessity in the modern world because of its ability to streamline supply chains. It facilitates easy communication between business partners and prevents human error from costing you time and money. However, for this exchange to occur, companies must share data in a way that is compatible with their trading partners’ EDI standards.

There is a set of worldwide EDI standards that dictate the format businesses receive EDI documents in. Your trading partners cannot receive your information correctly if you do not send it in the format they use. Recording your transaction information and converting it into the right EDI format can seem complex and daunting if you have no experience in the field. Large companies with enough experience may opt to do EDI in-house, but if you are a smaller company with no EDI experience, it might be worthwhile to hire an EDI expert. The right EDI provider can help you achieve EDI compliance without the hassle of training new employees and allocating funds to your own EDI program.

ACT Data has been one of the premier EDI providers in the industry for more than 25 years. They’ve worked with some of the biggest brands in the world, including Amazon, Target, Gap, and JC Penney.

The basics of web hosting

Category: Technology

Written by Rack Alley

To put it into simple terms, web hosting is an intangible service. With so many web hosting services available, it can be hard to decide which company to go for when there is such a vast range of prices and services. In order to better understand the various price ranges available and to decide on the best decision, it is important to know some of the basics of web hosting.

Servers are the most important part of web hosting, therefore it is the highest expenditure. Except for LA colocation, the servers and equipment are owned by the hosting company. Sometimes, you might notice higher fees due to the constant upgrade cycle. However, this is a good thing as faster servers mean better performance.

Data Centers
The servers owned by the company will be located at many of the data centers that the company owns. This expenditure is included when you purchase web hosting plans. These buildings can host thousands of servers at a time and even some hosts will allow region selection like the LA data center.

Little do people know, but web hosting companies also purchase web hosting just like any organization would. This can save companies money, but methods like these can cause problems for the customer. For example, since connections need to be distributed among thousands of customers, there could be strict limits when using these servers and could incur charges for exceeding those limits.

Rack Alley is a provider of colocation and LA Web Hosting at their LA data center.
