Operating systems are great at multi-tasking but they never asked what you want. They assume you want all of the installed applications at the same time when you just wanted to open a word document.
Fast! technology is doing what you want by making sure all of the other processes in the system will not get in your way – focusing all of the system resources for you.
Some history: when Microsoft designed the current windows architecture, about 25 years ago, they focused on process multi-tasking, less on user actions. When Steve Jobs created the iPhone – he disabled applications multi-tasking just to make sure the single application experience is great.
PC Computers are slow by design
Your PC’s resources are used by hundreds of processes and threads running inside your system — It’s called Context Switching.
Context switch is the process of storing and restoring the state of a process that execution can be resumed from the same point at a later time. This enables multiple processes to share a single CPU.
While Context Switching allowing for everything to run together the painful result is that the more applications you have on your PC, the slower it will work.
Central Processing Unit (CPU) is the electronic circuitry within a computer that carries out the instructions of a computer program by performing the basic arithmetic, logical, control and input/output (I/O) operations specified by the instructions. The computer industry has used the term “central processing unit” at least since the early 1960s. Traditionally, the term “CPU” refers to a processor, more specifically to its processing unit and control unit (CU), distinguishing these core elements of a computer from external components such as main memory and I/O circuitry.
Fast! is reducing the calls to the CPU from any application, process or thread that are not a part of what you want.
PC Hard Disk Drive
Hard disk drive (HDD), hard disk, hard drive or fixed disk is a data storage device that uses magnetic storage to store and retrieve digital information using one or more rigid rapidly rotating disks (platters) coated with magnetic material. The platters are paired with magnetic heads, usually arranged on a moving actuator arm, which read and write data to the platter surfaces. Data is accessed in a random-access manner, meaning that individual blocks of data can be stored or retrieved in any order and not only sequentially. HDDs are a type of non-volatile memory, retaining stored data even when powered off.
Compared to memory and the CPU, the Hard Drive is the SLOWEST component in your PC – it is a physically moving object, much of the delay is caused by seek time, the time it takes to correctly position the read/write heads above the disk platters.
Fast! is reducing the I/O access to the hard drive from any application, process or thread that are not a part of what you want. – READ FULL STORY
Ever seen those billboards or commercials that brag that the whole thing was shot on a smartphone? You may have thought “yeah right.” Funny thing is, it was probably true! More and more producers working on tight budgets have turned to smartphones to meet their production needs on the cheap. Here is how you, too, can create videos and show them on your website using nothing more than your smartphone and a little know-how.
Easier Than Ever
Many people see the task of adding video to their site as quite daunting. They believe that producing high-quality video requires expensive equipment, editing software, and in-depth technical knowledge. Just a few years ago you would have been right about that. But, with the rise of the smartphone, today everyone walks around with a powerful supercomputer and video camera in their pockets or purses all the time.
Of course, many people do not realize they can use it for anything other than deleting emails and sending texts. But, the great thing about using a smartphone to shoot video for your site is the ease of use. Unlike traditional cameras that require a deeper understanding of all of the various features in order to obtain sharp, clear videos, smartphones do most of that work for you. Still, some elements of a well-shot video will require a little thought and preparation.
While the technology can do a lot to make shooting video simple, you still need an appropriate location. You also want to find an area with little to no clutter in the background. The difference between a well-shot video and one that looks amateurish often comes down to these little details, so pay attention to your surroundings before tapping “record.”
Limit What Your Smartphone Does While Filming
Few things could be more annoying than getting most of the way through a fantastic take, then having your phone vibrate or ring. To reduce the likelihood of this problem, simply put your phone in airplane mode or use a “Do Not Disturb” feature. Also, if you have a number of apps producing a lot of notifications, silence notifications for a while during filming.
Also, be aware of how much space you have on your phone. If you have dozens of photos and apps filling up all of the available storage area, you may not be able to record much video. Save this content to your computer or the cloud before you start recording.
A Few Basic Principles of Good Photography Can Make All the Difference
If you have ever shot photographs indoors, you may already be familiar with the phenomenon of camera shake. With still photographs, the lower light levels indoors require a longer exposure, and movements as slight as your own pulse can cause the image to blur. Using a tripod and lights or flashes can counteract this effect by holding the camera much more still and reducing the amount of time required for the exposure.
Video is much the same. Although the camera takes a series of images in rapid succession (rather than opening and closing a lens for a single exposure) the lighting and shake of the camera still impact the quality of the resulting images. You could end up with a bouncy image, blurring, or something so dark your audience cannot make out any details.
Instead, use a tripod to stabilize your shot. Use photography lighting or natural outdoor lighting rather than the harsh, overhead fluorescents found in most offices. Make sure that the light fills the shot and does not leave any strange shadows or unintended dark spots on either your subject or the background. Also, make sure the light is bright, but not overpowering. This may require a little experimentation to get it just right, so build a little time into your schedule to make sure the image looks the way you want.
Few things can foul a good smartphone video faster than holding the device the wrong way. You want to hold the phone horizontally, with the longest edges on the top and bottom. Otherwise, the video will be tall and skinny, and not conducive to a pleasant viewing experience on most screens.
Of course, there is always an exception. Some platforms that host video for mobile devices prefer vertical formats. Examples include Snapchat and Instagram. If in doubt, research best practices for the way you want to use your video before you shoot.
Once you have shot your video, you will probably need to do a little editing. Whether on your phone or on a computer, most good video editing programs work in a fairly similar manner. They will allow you to select the videos you want to edit, slice them at appropriate locations, splice, add title cards, and make other adjustments. While you can edit videos within a smartphone, computers make the job much easier and produce better final products.
While there are many software solutions for editing videos, one of the best is also free: YouTube’s video editor. This solution just makes sense if you plan to host the video on YouTube. However, you can also use it to edit videos that you subsequently post elsewhere.
A final consideration for your videos will always be where you plan to host them. This may require a bit of thought and foresight. Videos tend to be large, resource-hogging files that can dramatically impact a website’s storage, bandwidth, and performance. Although some compression is possible, shrinking video file sizes without significantly compromising video quality, even this solution has limits.
The amount of video you intend to have on your site determines how much power your hosting account needs. If you use your website primarily for advertising, and you intend to have only a small handful of videos, you may find hosting those videos on YouTube or Vimeo, then embedding the content in your pages an adequate solution. Although this may split traffic between your site and the video hosting page, you will not run into issues like exceeding your hosting plan’s bandwidth or overtaxing server resources. For those who have either very small videos or who do not mind hosting them on a third-party site like YouTube, a Shared Hosting solution may be perfectly adequate.
Alternatively, if you plan to show multiple videos on your site, you may need a hosting product with more horsepower. For example, if you plan to have several pages of tutorials, frequently updated video interviews, a stream of original video content, or simply wish to host the videos directly on your site rather than using a third-party site like YouTube, you will need a more robust hosting product. Fortunately, InMotion Hosting makes upgrading easy. So, you can increase your site’s storage and power as you grow your content and fan base.
Time to Get Started
As you can see, it has never been easier to shoot your own videos and get them on the web. With smartphones, you can carry an entire video studio in your pocket. Just follow the steps above and you can have professional looking videos on your website in no time.
With VPS hosting you get many more options to choose from and it ends up being a cost effective alternate option to dedicated server hosting. You can choose from linux operating such as Centos VPS, Ubuntu VPS, FreeBSD VPS, Debian VPS or Windows VPS operating systems. You can also add cPanel or Direct Admin to Centos VPS.

When it comes to cutting-edge marketing, one technology is top of mind: beacons. In fact,more than a million beacons are expected to be installed in U.S. retail stores this year alone. But right now, many marketers only think about using beacons to push phone notifications.
At Google, we think beacons have the potential to do much, much more for consumers, brands, and marketers. To realize this potential, we created Eddystone and the Google beacon platform. With these platforms, beacons are no longer limited to communicating only with a brand’s app. Brands can integrate beacons with Google products and services, as well as their own and their partners’ apps.
For consumers, this means a frictionless shopping experience, with fewer gaps between channels. For retailers, it means reaching the right person at the right time with the right message, with new and improved metrics to measure success.
Enabling a seamless, cross-channel shopping experience
I-Want-To-Buy-It Moments: Mobile’s Growing Role in a Shopper’s Purchase Decision
Meeting people with a fast, frictionless mobile experience when they buy.
To understand beacon technology, look back at one of the oldest: lighthouses. Just as lighthouses mark locations with beams of light, beacons are physical landmarks that send signals to mobile devices.
These beacon signals enhance how people connect to their surroundings by giving their phones a much better idea about where they are. Think of a busy dad paying for parking through the Instant App associated with the beacon in a parking meter, or the young professional checking out popular times for her favorite restaurant so that she doesn’t have to wait.
Nearby Notifications makes shopping better by helping shoppers get things done with their phone, such as scanning items to get reviews of splitting the bill for their table in a restaurant. The technology also makes it easier for consumers to get useful information, whether that means seeing if an item is in stock or locating that same item while in-store.
While these kinds of communications often rely on other types of location signals, beacon signals take precision and quality to the next level. For marketers, beacons can give a brand an edge in a world where omni-channel shopping is becoming the norm and consumers expect to get what they want, when they want it. And the opportunity is huge: Even today, Android devices pull more than 40 billion queries for beacon-related content from Google services every year.1
Eddystone and the unlimited potential of beacons
Why Marketers Should Care About Mobile Page Speed
New research reveals the factors that cause your mobile site to underperform.
Beacon technology has been used in marketing for years, but Eddystone introduced a few really important improvements. Eddystone is an open-source beacon language, so it can be programmed by any developer, with specs and tools available on our developer site. It can also communicate with mobile devices across Android and iOS. And, with Eddystone, beacons can be used to communicate different things to different websites, apps, and services on mobile devices.
For example, in the last year, United Airlines installed beacons that work with Nearby Notifications on Android phones. These beacons help consumers prepare for an upcoming flight by helping them install the in-flight entertainment app that’s available for mobile devices.
And, perhaps most importantly, Eddystone and the Google beacon platform are extensible. This means they will continue to improve as more capabilities are invented and developed, using the same physical infrastructure. We’re excited to see how other brands and retailers use the technology to improve the consumer experience.
Think Retail | Eddystone + Google Beacon Platform by Peter Lewis
New insights into consumer behavior
Just as beacons enable consumers to become more attuned to their location, they also give marketers new insight into the real-life behavior of their consumers. As beacon technology becomes more widespread, it will help marketers see how Search Ads and Local Ads affect in-store visits.
For example, we ran a randomized controlled study with 10 of the largest U.S. big box retailers, including Target and Bed Bath & Beyond. We found that on average, the number of incremental store visits driven by mobile search ads exceeded the number of online purchase conversions. These were store visits that otherwise would not have happened, proving the substantial offline impact delivered by mobile search ads. Beacons are bringing this functionality to more stores through improvements in place detection.
Similar to other products—such as Popular Times—that use Google location data, safeguarding consumer privacy is top of mind. Users opt in to location services in order to benefit from extra functionality in a range of products from Search to Maps. The platform aggregates location data across many users and uses differential privacy to ensure that no individual user can be identified to a third party.
How your brand can get started with proximity marketing and beacons
Location-based marketing and proximity marketing with beacons are projected to grow exponentially in the next few years. To stay ahead of the curve, brands should invest in the beacon infrastructure that will enable consumer devices to work best within their stores.
Here are some things to consider before investing in beacon infrastructure:
Shape Consumers’ Preferences in Their I-Want-to-Buy Moments
How your brand can influence consumers when they’re deciding what to buy.
What do you want to communicate to consumers? The most flexible approach is to deploy beacons with abstract identifiers that are linked to your Google Cloud Platform account. You can then use Nearby Notifications to help users interact with your store through the web or your brand’s app. And, contrary to popular belief, you don’t necessarily need an app to take advantage of this. You can also work with partners whose apps can interact with your venue, extending and enriching your visitors’ experience. If you only want to point to a single webpage, broadcast its URL directly from the beacon.
How are users interacting with your venue? The place marker for your venue may already be emphasized in Google Maps if it’s popular in your area or on a specific user’s map if they’re a frequent visitor. Ensuring that your visitors’ devices know that they’ve visited improves your venue’s presence across a range of Google products. In particular, we’re piloting the use of beacon signals to bring Store Visits measurement to more venues, helping you understand the offline impact of your online ad spend. Ask your Google representative about the Store Visits and beacons program.
Contact a manufacturer. The list of manufacturers that can install beacons that support Eddystone is here. These manufacturers can help you learn more about setting up and using beacons. To make sure your beacons will work with Google technology, ask for Eddystone and make sure to ask that the Google integrations are enabled through Google Cloud Platform.

Check out the amazing websites created with Web Designer.
Web Designer includes website and web graphics templates created by professional designers to the highest standards.
Traditional web authoring tools are really just HTML editors, originally designed to create text layouts, providing few graphical capabilities. Yet it’s evident that the majority of modern websites are of a graphical nature. We believe you should have complete freedom to include anything – text, graphics, photos – anywhere on the page, using just one tool. And you shouldn’t need to know, or even see, the HTML that goes into creating your site, any more than a car driver needs to know how an engine works.
Pick your page design from the bundled templates, all created by professional designers so that quality is guaranteed. There are pre-built, ready linked multi-page sites, or you can build your own site from the page layouts offered in co-ordinated theme sets. Web Designer has all the layouts you need (eg home, products, photo gallery, news, store etc).
Then you can customize the pages with complete freedom and absolutely zero loss of quality!
Web Designer treats web page design just like print page layout. You can either create your own page and site designs from scratch with the powerful page layout and design tools or simply
1) pick your design from the templates
2) customize it with complete freedom
GRAPHIC DESIGN TOOLS INCLUDED
You only need one program for creating graphical websites – from design to publishing – and that’s Web Designer.
Web Designer includes customizable web graphic, webpage and website template designs plus tools for creating your own designs, for photo editing (an integrated ultra-fast, non-destructive photo tool), and for advanced text layout. The Designs Gallery also includes a collection of Widgets. Site upload is covered too and there’s even a free web hosting offer!
Web Designer gives you total design freedom – using drag and drop you can literally place anything, anywhere on the page. And things which are normally difficult to achieve in HTML are a snap in Web Designer – for example text with curved edges, text or graphics at an angle, text flowing around objects – no problem!
FULLY DEVELOPED AND READY TO GO WEB SITE TEMPLATES
Web Designer’s templates are created by top professional designers, so the quality is guaranteed. But of course you can customize the color, text, images, size etc to create your own personal look without any loss of quality. It’s the best of both worlds!
Web Designer has some clever tricks too, to make things easier for you – here’s just a few of the things that will save you time and trouble:
Liquid text flow around objects; easy mouseover, thumbnail and pop-up creation; automatic adjustment of photos to the correct web resolution; one-click change of site wide theme colors and shades; automatic color matching of imported objects such as buttons; a concept of ‘repeating objects’ such as headings and button bars – edit one instance and they all update; buttons and text panels that automatically stretch as you change the text; smart automatic repositioning of objects and resizing of pages as you add new text; font embedding which frees you from the restriction of ‘web safe’ fonts.
Working with industry standards is vital, so Web Designer sites are W3C compliant, cross browser compatible (IE 8+, Firefox, Safari, Chrome) and XHTML, CSS standards based.
It can also import a huge range of files types for vector graphics, image and text including PDF, RTF, RAW, PSD, TIFF and of course JPEG, PNG, GIF. Premium offers some extra import formats (SVG, ODP, PPTX).
WEB EASY RESPONSIVE WEBSITE TEMPLATES AND THEMES INCLUDED
Websites made with Web Designer are ready for the latest iOS and Android smartphones and tablets. We‘ve invested significant effort in esuring that all our templates and features work with mobile devices.
Together with our embedded HTML 5 player technology for video and audio integration this means that you can create state of the art website projects which work across all platforms and browsers with minimum effort.
Sites created in Web Designer are also touchscreen compatible.
SEARCH ENGINE OPTIMIZATION
Now you have a great looking site and you’ll want to get the word out! Web Designer helps you achieve search engine success by making it easy to add the essential titles, descriptions and keywords, by site or by page.
Advanced users can add HTML code to the body field, and in Premium you can also add HTML to the head field, automatically create XML sitemaps and easily embed Google Analytics web analysis tool to measure your success.

An Instant Article is a HTML5 document optimized for fast mobile performance, rich storytelling capabilities, branded design and customized visual display. Through this guide, you’ll learn how to create an Instant Article and use a standardized markup language (similar to XML) to make your stories come alive with custom styles and interactive functionality.
Building an Instant Article does not automatically create a corresponding Facebook post, however. It is a separate tool meant to enhance your article once someone shares it on Facebook. It simply means that any time a reader on a mobile device is directed to the article’s URL on Facebook, the link will be displayed as an Instant Article.

Instant Articles displays stories as much as ten times faster than conventional mobile browsers, while also providing the kind of fluid, high-quality experience and interactivity people expect.
New Creative Tools
Instant Articles introduces a suite of creative tools that allow publishers to bring their stories to life in new ways, with high-resolution photos, auto-play videos, interactive maps and audio captions.

Mobile searches is the big winner during Super Bowl 50 – Web Easy Professional
by Think With Google
How the Big Game Played Out on the Second Screen
Commercials during the Super Bowl don’t just make us laugh or cry—they also make us search. This year, there were more than 7.5 million searches for the brands advertising during the game. This searching represents a 7X response rate compared to a typical TV ad, even after normalizing for audience size. Second-screen searching—whether it’s to re-engage with the ad, to learn more about the product, or to purchase—is a powerful indication of brand interest. For brands, that means a presence on the big screen isn’t complete without a strategy for the small screen, too.

Making Money by Buying and Selling Domains as a Business – there is web easy gold in those far hills!
The right Domain names can be a solid investment. Just like investing in stocks and real estate, domain name investments and creation take vision and perseverance.
Buying and selling unique and memorable Domains names that have marketability is a science and being a cross between a prospector and an online keyword marketing whiz-kid. It sure is a web easy way to make money.
There’s a lot of gut instinct and intuition that goes into domain name creation and purchasing. You need to think in the future, and know which business categories are hot and what’s not. Like domain names for “marijuana” might be profitable in the future with it going legal across the United States? Is there a new product or service that is trending upwards that you think may become a huge hit? It is not unheard of some domain names selling for over a million dollars.
Domain names can sell for hundreds, thousands, or even millions of dollars like “realtor.com” if the right buyer comes along and has to have the domain name you own and are selling. The trick is to find a domain name that someone wants to buy, and then register or buy that name before someone else does.

Microsoft FrontPage, the original web easy website authoring tool and part of the hugely successful Microsoft Office family of software products.
The grand-daddy of all html web authoring software that started it all, Front Page by Microsoft.
About Microsoft FrontPage:
Microsoft FrontPage, a website authoring tool and part of the hugely successful Microsoft Office family of software products for 7 years and discontinued 13 years ago in 2003. If was a great website pioneering product for it’s time that brought people, information and e-commerce together on the Web. Microsoft FrontPage is a WYSIWYG (What You See Is What You Get) HTML editor and Web site administration tool. It was branded as part of the Microsoft Office suite from 1997 to 2003. Microsoft FrontPage has since been replaced by other web authoring software. Front Page is designed to hide the details of pages’ HTML code from the user, making it possible for novices to create Web pages and Web sites easily and “see” the page as it would like displayed in a browser. This saved the user a lot of time and money and having to learn how to code html. Some of the features in Micorsoft Front Page included: Split View option to allow the user to code in Code View (for servers) and preview in Design View for the person building the web page without the hassle of learning how to code html plus having to switch back and forth between the Design View and Code View tabs to view changes. Microsoft FrontPage included Dynamic Web Templates (DWT) allowing users to create a single web page template that could be used across multiple pages throughout the entire Web site with a navigation menu bar that helped organize the website and make the user experience pleasurable. Microsoft then developed Interactive Buttons which gave users a new and easy way to create Web graphics for navigation menus and links thus eliminating the need for a complicated and expensive image editing software such as Adobe Photoshop and Adobe Illustrator. FrontPage is long gone but should not be forgotten.

Marketers who rely on demographics alone risk missing out on potential mobile shoppers.
Why Consumer Intent Is More Powerful Than Demographics
Written by Lisa Gevelber,
Think with Google
Marketers who rely only on demographics to reach consumers risk missing more than 70% of potential mobile shoppers. Why? Because demographics rarely tell the whole story. Understanding consumer intent is much more powerful. Lisa Gevelber, Google’s VP of marketing, shares how starting with intent can help you reach more of the right people than demographics alone.
For years, we as marketers have been using demographics as a proxy for people who might be interested in our products. But our research shows that marketers who try to reach their audience solely on demographics risk missing more than 70% of potential mobile shoppers.1 Why? Because demographics don’t help us understand what we really need to know—what consumers are looking for in an exact moment or where they are looking to find it. Intent beats identity. Immediacy trumps loyalty. When someone has a want or need, they turn to their smartphone for help—whether it’s a karate newbie watching an expert do a move on YouTube or a mom looking for the best deal on a pair of sneakers. When a need arises, people turn to search and YouTube to look for answers, discover new things, and make decisions. We call these intent-filled moments, micro-moments. And they’re the best opportunity marketers have to connect with people at the exact moment they are looking for something. Understanding consumer intent and meeting their needs in the moment are the keys to winning more hearts, minds, and dollars. – Read full article
