Ctrl-Alt-Del Design, Gates –>Blames IBM – vía @mashable


Bill Gates said that a convoluted login screen was a big design flaw for Windows, but he’s not taking credit for it.

The Microsoft co-founder revealed in a speech at a Harvard University fundraiser that forcing users to use the control-alt-delete key combination to log into their PCs was a mistake — one made by IBM, the designers of the reboot combination. Gates went on to explain that the multiple-key command — often called the three-finger salute — was created by David Bradley, an engineer who worked on the original IBM design.

El 71% de los españoles percibe Facebook como la red social más insegura – vía @socialetic


Kaspersky Lab presenta algunos de los datos principales de su “Informe de Seguridad Multidispositivo”, elaborada a nivel global en junio de 2013 por B2B Internacional entre 2.545 usuarios  en la que, entre otros temas, se analizan los usos y amenazas a los que se enfrentan los usuarios al acceder a Internet desde su smartphone, tablet o PC.

seguridad informaticaPor Kaspersky Lab



Lo cierto es que, según se deprende del estudio, el 80% de los españoles se muestra preocupado por la pérdida de los datos personales y el 76% por lo que otras compañías hacen con los datos que les facilitan. Además, el 62% se inquieta también por el uso que los gobiernos puedan hacer de su información.

La seguridad multidispositivo ya se ha convertido en algo imprescindible, ya que el 66% de los españoles ha experimentado algún tipo de ataque financiero, destacando los mails o mensajes en redes sociales con links sospechosos (43%) y mails falsos de bancos solicitando información financiera (35%), motivo por el que Kaspersky Lab ha decidido aunar la seguridad de todos los dispositivos en Kaspersky Internet Security Multi-Device. El coste medio derivado de un ataque de malware en España es de 36 euros y el 12% no ha conseguido recuperar la totalidad del dinero robado.

El peligro móvil 

De nuevo, los dispositivos móviles siguen siendo una asignatura pendiente en materia de seguridad online ya que el 80% confiesa que no ha instalado ninguna solución para proteger su smartphone o tablet, por lo que el peligro es real ya que los usos más populares de estos dispositivos son el acceso a redes sociales (67% smartphones – 68% tablets), mensajería instantánea (59% smartphones – 44% tablets), y acceso a banca online (40% smartphones – 47% tablets) y sólo el 17% cifra la información de su dispositivo.

30 years of PCWorld, 30 pivotal moments in PC history // thnxz to @loydcase – pcworld.com


 

Talk about longevity. Thirty years ago to this month, PCWorld published its very first print issue, a 310-page magazine loaded with essential news, reviews, and features about IBM PCs and compatible “clones.”

The content inside the March 1983 issue of PC World was exceedingly quaint—even borderline comical, as the images in our accompanying slideshow prove. But once you take stock of PCWorld’s entire 30-year history, you begin to develop a profound appreciation for just how dramatically the PC platform has evolved—and how it has influenced the greater world of consumer electronics, from music players to smartphones to any device that’s connected to the Internet and geared toward social sharing.

We commemorate PCWorld’s 30-year history with a trip down memory lane, calling out the most pivotal PC-related events and product releases that occurred in each calendar year from 1983 to 2012. Keep in mind that these aren’t necessarily the 30 most important PC landmarks of the last 30 years, but rather the biggest highlights in each individual year.

Think we missed something critically important? Let us know in the comments section below!

1983

Compaq Portable debuts: Founded during the prior year, Compaq makes its mark on the industry by releasing its first PC—the first luggable IBM-compatible, and a harbinger of the age of mobile computing. Compaq, of course, would become a huge player in the PC industry, only to be acquired by HP two decades later.

1984

PCs Limited starts up: A college student named Michael Dell launches a small business in his dorm room, building custom PCs. His little endeavor is destined to become one of the biggest companies in the industry, getting into printers, servers, and networking gear too.

1985

Windows 1.0 ships: After initially discussing Windows in 1983, PCWorld scarcely gives the software a mention in 1985 or 1986. No one predicts big things for this somewhat clunky visual file-management utility, the precursor to full-fledged OS greatness.

Historia de Dell


La historia de Dell comienza cuando en 1984 su fundador Michael Dell aún era estudiante de medicina de la universidad de Texas en Austin, el fundó una compañía llamada PC Limited con un capital de 1.000 dólares, ésta compañía se dedicaba a vender PCs compatibles con IBM construidos con componentes disponibles en inventario.

historiasdegrandesexitos.com

En sus inicios solo vendía equipos informáticos directamente a los clientes, así en PC’s Limited entendían mejor las necesidades de sus clientes y le podrían ofrecer la mejor solución. En 1985, la compañía produjo su primer equipo con su propio diseño las denominaron “Turbo PC”, este equipo tenia un procesador de Intel 8088 compatible que funcionaba a una velocidad de 8 MHz. Anunciaban sus equipos en revistas y otras publicaciones especializadas para vender directamente al cliente, además ensamblaba los ordenadores según las necesidades de cada cliente dándole a escoger una serie de opciones, ofrecía los ordenadores a los precios más baratos del mercado pero a diferencia de sus competidores, ellos les instalaban el equipo a los usuarios. Aunque no fue la primera empresa en utilizar este método de venta, si fue el primero que obtuvo éxito.
Michael Dell deja los estudios para dedicarse a tiempo total a su empresa, consigue aumentar su capital a 300.000 dólares gracias a su familia con lo que el primer año ganó en total más de 6 millones de dólares.
 
En 1987, PC Limited instala sus primeros equipos “in situ” para compensar la carencia de personal especializado en las tiendas de informática. También en 1987, la compañía realiza sus primeras operaciones en el Reino Unido.
 
En 1988, la capitalización de mercado de Dell creció de 30 a 80 millones de dólares desde su oferta pública inicial de 3.5 millones de acciones a 8.5. También en ese año la compañía cambia el nombre por el de Dell Computer Corporation.
 
En 1990, Dell Computer intenta comercializar sus equipos en grandes almacenes y tiendas especializadas de informática, pero no obtuvo mucho éxito y cambió su estrategia enfocándose en el consumidor final.
 
En 1992, la revista Fortune incluyó a la corporación de Dell Computer en su lista de las 500 compañías más grandes del mundo.
 
En 1996, Dell comenzó a vender computadores a tráves de su sitio web.
 
En 1999, Dell sobrepasó a Compaq para convertir en el vendedor más grande de computadores personales en los Estados Unidos con ganancias de $25 millones de dólares reportadas en Enero del 2000. Sigue leyendo

7 websites that make life on the road easy


Business travel may or may not be better than it was 30 years ago, but the process for arranging flights and hotels today is immeasurably better than it was in the supposed good old days.

Via Bizjournal

Back in 1983, we had exactly one computerized tool, the Official Airline Guide Electronic Edition. Created for first-generation IBM personal computers, the OAG Electronic Edition spit out endless lines of code to represent flights, arrival and departure times and prices. And unless you knew the undocumented secret (the number “99″ appended to end of a command line), you couldn’t display all of your fare options in a single session.

Websites like Kayak.com, which help travelers compare air fares, are just one of many online tools that make it easier for road warriors to operate while away from home.

Throw in dial-up modems, 5.25-inch floppy drives and a 10-cent-a-minute charge to access the Electronic Edition and you’re talking the business-travel equivalent of stone knives and bear skins.

Today we’re spoiled for choices to make our planning better. So much choice, in fact, that we’re almost paralyzed by the cornucopia of data at our fingertips and accessible via smartphones, tablets, laptops or our latest-generation PC. I sometimes yearn for the wonky excitement I felt when I first accessed schedules on a tiny, monochrome screen, but, overall, I prefer to use these seven sites to make my life on the road in 2013 a bit easier.

Kayak.com for fare information

The Net teems with sites that claim to beat the airlines at their own fare games. Most can’t. But I find Kayak.com fantastically flexible as a fare-compare tool. You can filter prices by number of stops and connections (useful if you’re looking for a bargain on international premium-class travel); take-off and landing times; by any combination of carriers you choose; aircraft type; and, most creatively, by an airline’s membership in a global alliance.

Best of all, I find Kayak’s layout and displays comparatively clean and intuitive. I say comparatively because every traveler’s idea of clean and simple will vary. Kayak isn’t perfectit recently refused to show Porter Airlines on a itinerary between New York and Porter’s Toronto hubbut no third-party site is. If Kayak isn’t to your fare-compare tastes, try the relatively obscure Dohop.com or the better known Matrix offered by Google’s ITA Software.

Social Media Report 2012: Top Trends SMBs Need to Know


Nielsen’s State of the Media: The Social Media Report 2012 reflects on various social media trends of 2012, as well as the potential impact they will have on the coming year. There is no denying that social media is more popular than ever with consumers, and that having a social media presence is critical for SMBs’ online marketing strategies in 2013.  Here are a few highlights from the report.

Mobile Usage Is Not Slowing Down

As you might have guessed, the amount of time consumers spent on PCs and Smartphones increased between July 2011 and July 2012.  Time spent on these devices grew by 21%, while time on apps rose 120% in that same period.  While PCs still remain our primary source of Internet access, the usage of mobile Web and apps are increasing at a significant rate. Small businesses can’t afford to ignore mobile any longer, and should invest in mobile-friendly advertising and sites to reach this growing audience.

Time Spent on Social Networks Grew 37%.

From July 2011 to July 2012, the time consumers spent on social media sites grew from 88.4B minutes to a whopping 121.1B minutes. Nielsen attributes this substantial growth in part to the rise of mobile apps, which enable us to stay connected to our favorite sites while on the go. In fact, we spent seven times more minutes on apps than on the mobile Web. Time spent on these sites means social media access is not only on the rise, but also that we are more engaged when we do visit them. For small businesses, this means being active on social media is more important than ever in order to reach consumers spending a large portion of their time there.

How Is Windows 8 Going To Do? Microsoft Doesn’t Want To Talk About It

PowerPoint 2013 reviewed


See on Scoop.itGabriel Catalano human being | #INperfeccion® a way to find new insight & perspectives

PowerPoint 2013 has just reached its beta version. So has it been worth the wait?

Jo Fahey from Eyeful Presentations puts PowerPoint 2013 through its paces.

Look and Feel

When you first open PowerPoint 2013 you are instantly struck by the sleek new look and feel. This is not only visually appealing but makes the whole program feel very solid and reliable. Also the default slide size is now 16×9 rather than the traditional 4×3 – an improvement which we’ve been looking forward to for a while now.

It may look a little different, but the ribbon is still there and the layout of this has barely changed. What has changed, though, is when you right click and select format shape, the window for this now appears to the right and as a solid part of PowerPoint, rather than floating ethereally. It takes a little getting used to, but essentially it’s the same.

Not a lot’s changed on the template front, with PowerPoint 2013 sticking to the same format as its 2010 and 2007 predecessors. We’re great believers in hanging on to what works, so there’s no disappointment on that front.

It’s the Insert Tab on the ribbon that’s changed most. Colours are the same as before but the gradient fill pre-sets have really improved to give a more modern look and feel. Sigue leyendo

Intel wants to reinvent computing–again | via tech.fortune.cnn.com


 

By 

Intel stays mum on its new smartphone strategy, but it has plenty to say about PC processors.

FORTUNE — A week after slashing its third-quarter sales forecast due to sluggish demand for PCs, Intel kicked off its annual developer conference with a promise to reinvent computing.

The world’s largest chipmaker unveiled its latest processor line, Haswell, due out in 2013. The next-generation, lower-power Intel Core processor family will enable “faster, thinner, better” devices and enable longer battery life, said David Perlmutter, Intel’s chief product officer. Sigue leyendo
