E commerce Technology

Welcome to Smart World discussion about E-Business. This is an interesting Article . Learning objectives for this Article is to define what commerce describe its various categories to describe and discuss the content e-commerce to describe the major types of e-commerce transactions to discuss e-commerce 2. 0 to describe social commerce and social software to understand the elements of the digital world to describe the drivers of e-commerce as they relate business pressure responses to describe some of e-commerce business models describe the benefits of e-commerce organizations society as a whole to list and describe some of the major imitations of e-commerce. So what is e-commerce house relate to e-business me talk to what text you referring to. The yall have their own definitions their own relationship between these two concepts, but in generale-commerce is a subset of e-business e-business is a broader perspective of e-commerce e-commerce in this text is defined as the process of selling worksheet products, server is should be here so is the ability to digitize products or digitized part of the process doing regular service e-business is a larger perspective of of e-commerce implies it’s not just transactions of buying and selling goods, but also a lot of back office functions that occur within an organization in terms of managing relationships with customers managing managing relationships with different parts of the organization. HR, for example, manufacturing, sales, etc. use of business e-business just to take a larger scope also deals with external relationships of organizations with other organizations to manage relationships with suppliers, etc. major concepts that we can can consider when were talking about e-commerce organizations is the degree of digitization they they use business processes to create and deploy openso their products for their services in generally classified as organizations in 213 in ranges,pure versus partial e-commerce to to know e-commerce at all times in general you got brick-and-mortar organizations as the old position you used to the needs for store and buyer good for your service physical location see people you try things I touched on the consolidated field on brick-and-mortar something concrete about right. On the other end of the spectrum are virtual organizations positions that only exist on every sliver online isproduced, example might be at least to a certain degree. com what were your purchasing book and e-book from so the T process is online. The product is delivered to you across the Internet across your network connections you consume my reading monitor or listening to the audiobook such a virtual organization or the online at least that aspect of his organization Netflix from another good example of virtualization leases relates to their streaming service, hybrid to click and more organizations on those positions that usually have 1 foot in each camp disallow physical presence, but also virtual presence I Walmarts example you can certainly go to Walmart. com make purchases consume some things from Walmart online the same time physical location where you go you can purchase things across the way looking might be able be visualized 50 Q I’m really looking at it. Basically three different dimensions you’re looking at the delivery method on how is this a good or service delivered to you is it physically delivered to be delivered digitally on the work process. How is housework process is online yet going someplace physically or something. I housewe were actually processed can again cannot be done digitally versus physically has tobe moved from might be in a good way to think about that you look at the the invention great idea. It seemed armor my pure e-commerce organization. Network the processing digitally deliveries done digitally were established at the other extreme physical the traditional commerce. The product or service test report in person’s physical process delivery shipment is done physical means delivered via UPS or or however I processing them physically as well. The book is manufactured through process concepts that we need to keep in mind are some basic definitions electronic marketplace or the marketplace is an online marketplace for buyers and sellers need to exchange goods, services, money information different than traditional marketplace we might meet to exchange search fleamarket we need a furnace so are you going to a all same type of situation going to go exchange goods and services different organizations are some things people are buying things is a place to bring together buyers and sellers to facilitate trade another concept is an intranet and Internet is think of the Internet come forth what is how it works collection of different networks for sharing resources for assuring access to documents and interest is the same thing differences is closed off to the outside world is limited to our organization to our government, our corporation to what he wants to limit access that resource we taking manage of consumers understanding of Internet technologies. The use web browsers protocols. Bruce other Internet tools available to us is closed off from the rest of the world protect the information keep it in turn an extra is very similar same general concept differences we opened up to the outside world in a limited fashion so present when my organization wants to open up part of their system to their suppliers suppliers in the system and determine when there certain stock levels follow circle so they know when to replenish the so you take advantage of our familiarity with technologies,but it limits the access to the outside world just those access to it using my username and password so why are we interested in studying e-commerce until the growth of e-commerce as part of our economy is growing your fears becoming more more a significant portion or,was interesting to note is the stuff that we actually see is consumers release limited to, but I talked a little bit more slots this we talked about definition of e-commerce and what is its relationship with e-business but in general dirtier in terms of what it really consists of we really need to have Mineworkers way of looking at the different components that make up e-commerce book proposes one has basically I support various people public-policy marketing and support services business partnerships some people buyers and sellers and intermediaries people and bring together both buyers and sellers policy is an e-commerce site organizationthe the taxes that we pay what jurisdictions we operate in legal and privacy issues, things of that nature marketing and advertisement market research who are customers the work and make money on her we can do promotions, web content for sports services logistics are we going to get our physical products delivered to our customers even just additional product are we want to process payments as things that we have to to work issues at work lastly business partnerships, joint ventures, affiliate programs things that nature. How can I come up with the the most efficient way of getting our products that we deliver to our customers. What always we can think about e-commerce is that the nature of the relationships of the transactions between partners, between disciplines and though there are more relationships that exist to are commonly discussed our business-to-business business to consumer now most the time we tend to think of this consumers the business to consumer relationship pretty small part of the market fell 7% more than 7% will e-commerce market is the relationship that we could play our part so that’s what we see regarding Amazon,Walmart, things like that we are participating business to consumer relationship. One is much bigger piece that I is the business-to-business relationship between buyers and sellers times businesses purchased from other businesses that purchase the supplies purchased the raw materials in an e-commerce environment. Those purchases typically are many more there are many more posts transactions transactions are typically much much larger bigger part bigger piece I said is a slowing economy illustrates the different components that the paragraph illustrates how you might think about the different components that it takes to make a framework for e-commerce perhaps luster relationships are the beach be to see the relationships. For example of business to business to consumer relationship which is representative of traditional supply chain site business myself to another business out of business has their own set of customer treatment of Sultan consumer others also consumer to business model again is to be lesser-known models. The picture certainly examples out there for example, consumer and business model. My fingers are specially Priceline. com were individual is trying to sell so to speak on their purchase of the race on room will travel for business e-commerce refers to internal organizational activities where you might have one, one organization, one department within an organization that the activities that call this transactions or exchanges business services within the session with other departments within the organization of business to employees e-commerce models represent. It is a mallin which organizations deliver services information products transit to his individual employees so we may so for example so for say, but deliver information through human resources about various insurance packages bracelet benefits packages to our employees using e-commerce technologies yet another category is the consumer to consumer market them all in which consumer so directly to other consumers. EBay is probably the best example for consumer to consumer market. You create an account post product that you want to sell to the sin of the world’s first login market space to bid on products an example consumer to consumer market is also’s mother probably was are well-known categories leases. Collaborative commerce e-commerce model in which individuals or groups treated or collaborate collaborate online to develop a good or service together. The ego is really just the application of e-commerce technologies and governments to provide services to citizens to the people constituents I see you spoke with her shoes at the local, state and federal levels. Reagan Login you submit taxes to pay fines you can pay your bill things that you graphical representation of what we were discussing all his various relationships between businesses and consumers employees in the relationships of of the grace transactions that they can exist between the will of e-commerce is going around quite some time before the Internet world was was, commercially available for example EDI was used kind of interchange was used but large corporations large organizations to be able to easily electronically exchange billing information is the imagebut the proprietary nature really kind of push out the little guys push-up obviously consumers and small businesses as the Internet became began to gain a foothold and become more research see organizations with presence online. In this push towards being able to conduct transactions online and really saw the birth of what modern-day e-commerce is all about the conduct transactions those purchases the exchange billing information, etc. allonline through the the to the Internet. The interdisciplinary nature of e-commerce is really easy. It’s really something that probably was not recognized early on in the early days of of the Internet e-commerce model or models and is probably what led to the. com bust that we saw tree to the 99 2001 in that area but is now is the recognition makes conducting e-commerce online much much more practical feeling. I suppose the interdisciplinary fields are drawn on things like accounting business law, computer science, management information system marketing, finance, human resources we drawn all these different areas because weathers online words, it’s a physical organization. We really rely on those same disciplines the business. The Google revolution in the early days of e-commerce you a lot of different organizations trying to be to go to organization’s ability to search for things products find goods and services that Google however did better job they really kind of get their fingers and a lot of pies because of their ability to search so effectively and as a result encroachment dominated a lot of a lot of the market I rosewhen you turn commerce is arched specifically refers to the general idea of marketing goods and services through social media, whether it be Facebook or twitter tumbler, etc. so the users been e-commerce failures. That’s just the reality is that the. com bust that we saw on some those examples eToys web bamboo are all examples of organizations that really didn’t have a very good business model going into their their development survey by strategic direction in 2000, 62%. com financial skills and 50% had little experience with marketing no wonder that we had failures on catastrophic you will. They simply were not viable businesses. The idea was that if you could being her name be successful in reality was that if you weren’t paying attention to the interdisciplinary nature of of business, whether it’s e-business were not. It’s tough to make a viable business model out having said that the students and some successes as well. Companies like Amazon, eBay had done very well Facebook Google: variable processing some click and mortar stores that have been able to develop their own niches and be able to sell both face-to-face as well as on example symbols or target online IBM sell things like that source the future e-commerce, hard to specifically map out with futures want to be but I think most people agree that the units here state that e-commerce is hearsay things I think is interesting interest in online shopping is considerably lower amongst the young and have the oldest Generation X tends to have the highest percentage of ofthat it to the shop online generation Y is actually lower kind of interesting. Having Said that, with forecasts of approximately 2,000,004 estimates about 2 million people on the 2010 an estimate of about 50% of all Internet users shopping online. That’s a pretty big marketplace of the future e-commerce is is on pretty solid ground next few slides really talk about Tom e-commerce in terms of e-commerce 2. 0 and this is kind of a holdover from traditional software conditions or upgrades. Our first editions 1. 0 or play something to the next editions 2. 03107 so e-commerce 2. 0 implies that we had a major upgrade in the since we had we gone from his basic websites so services to really try to incorporate more or less social interaction more of a personal experience makes more interactive and so we see some major ideas’s being social computing, Web 2. 0, social, social computing where it is an approach and making the human computer interface more natural you will see things that things laid out on the screen that they’re much more appealing to users much easier to navigate very user-friendly, Web 2. 0 reversed the second generation of Internet-based services was people collaborate, share information online. Anyways, social networking sites, wikis collaborate on writing an article the different ways of communicating text social media things that the things that nature. These social networks are categories Internet applications and connect friends business for individuals with specific interest by providing free services presentation email blogging song isn’t writing tools. Obviously Some of the examples of twitter, LinkedIn, etc. I give is a wasted T-shirt to ensure information, share photos, share concepts, ideas, shopping experiences, etc. an example of this, but I think it’s kind of interesting necessarily agree with his example but mystepson, for example, is a movie enthusiast and he basically says that Adam Sandler is work he can make bad movies and why because during the first showing people going watch my CL pattern may immediately start tweeting. How have those movies are is a way to get the word out very quickly and some of it goes to see the movie on and thus the power of social networking power of social commerce and the effect that it can have social networking service resinous is a service that bills online communities writing an online space for people to build free homepages and provides basic communication and support tools conducting different activities and social network, specific instance or a specific example of the typeof social networking. It’s a little bit more detail than just social networking general Facebook is an example when dinner is an example that they are little bit more comprehensive than some specific examples of twitter which is just used for communication really is much more complete profile picture of who you are as an individual and to be able communicate and share things with other individuals are part of better are members of the social service social networking is the act of participating in my social network creation or sponsoring of a social network service and any activities such as blogging done in my social network enterprise social networks or religious business-oriented social networks that can be public relations and private LinkedIn. For example, it tends to be more and more business professional orientation to as far social commerce e-commerce activities conducted social networks and were using social software. Examples of the cruise line boxes social networking site to track crisp and gives them a place, and organize and create groups of might be interested in doing so the way to to use e-commerce technologies or merge e-commerce technologies with social networking technologies or sites in order to drive sales and profits the place where we can see e-commerce 2. 0 technologies is a social commerce is in virtual worlds sothe best example, virtual world of Second Life virtual world. This is really nothing more than three computer recently environment allows the screamers first represent ourselves as is an individual’s virtual world and we can travel from place placeless virtual world we can check up different organizations that have virtual presences we can look at different goods and services that they offer. We can talk about these services in this virtual environment and the and make decisions make purchases in the virtual world. The bleedover into our physical world. The book is an example is pretty interesting about how students can make in virtual world simply by being man with the pizza man with these types of technologies personal major tools, Web 2. 0, wikis, RSS feeds, blogs, microblogs,such as twitter is some of the tools are, Web 2. 0 environment. Gone are the days of stacked web pages where you manually go back and add content as a web developer in a lot of cases today content is generated by the users. That’s what’s really addictive Web2. 0 technologies is worth billing a lot of our content by users that are out there using our websites that are contributing to reviews and writing about our our review of our restaurant you move the book that nature so low that content is generated by our users so e-commerce for you business is one facet of a digital, digital, music, and is based on digital technologies including digital communications networks email twitter almost types of things computer software related information technologies social called the Internet economy. The new economy with web, digital enterprises and a business model uses IT fundamental way to accomplish one or more three basic objectives to reach and engage customers more effectively. You will find customers be able to park them specifically in IT or or information technology is especially well-suited for that you can create custom marketing messages to each individual user that’s that’s a great value to companies like Google Google has been so successful to boost employee productivity and improve operating efficiency computers very good that they help us to improve efficiency tremendously, and these converge first communication computing technology in a way that improves business processes the idea of convergence or combining email and telephone calls in an altered touch points that we have with consumers in the into Colin ways that we have. We know how are dealing with her customers and discussing topics and answer questions with our customers in many cases is in the corporate portal gateway through which employees, business partners and the public as a whole can interact with the organization this relies on the fact that we have some sort of digital society. We needa society that is very comfortable using these technologies. Otherwise residents per notthe business environment is changing largely because there’s been a shift in power marshalingbefore e-commerce most of the power transactional relationship existed with the seller. Theseller had information. The seller knew about quality of the product how much it cost tomake things that nature the Internet and e-commerce solution to that our considerably in favorof the consumer. The consumer’s and will do a lot more research memory the race to bea letter to compare prices and shop around solicit the date shifts a lot of power awayfrom the manufacturer away from the service to the consumer. This creates certain businesspressures businesses operate within a of business environment met environment presents bothhas business pressures and has business profit opportunities opportunities are really kindof of sin. Jesus problems all opportunities are dressed by a company by the various businessprocesses with 100 K in place. The core competencies of that particular organization inconsistentwith their mission goals the strategies and plans of that organization were able to respondin some fashion. Most business pressures. Most business opportunities that responseis largely facilitated by escorted e-commerce what are some of the major capabilities ofe-commerce Boulder the ability to conduct transactions very efficiently, and the costof each transaction down significantly global reach. We can now connect transactions runaround the world small companies or individuals selling to services all around the world anytime,anywhere. Once our websites are running it runs 24 seven. It doesn’t sleep doesn’t strikeeasy to find product vendor information in some a shift in power to to consumer. We alsohave to do it now is an organization to compete with our our competitors because they’re providingthat information. I suppose a lot of different capabilities e-commerce help facilitate transactionssuggested above graphical representation of that competitive cyclic model you can seetheir to the left the business environment that have creates opportunities creates pressuresor problems or organization organizations really good by our mission, our goals forour strategy in her clams on those are what between the problems and opportunities whosemission goals, etc. those elitist little various business processes and develop core competenciesto address those issues hopefully were able actually measure back to the performance levelshim been impacts our mission goals, etc. an illustration of the major capabilities thatcontribute to the growth of e-commerce again efficient transactions global reach anytimeanywhere convenience, etc. e-business is not different from any other business. Since thatyou have to have some sort of business business model in place be successful. The goal isto make money right.

The benefit comes from the volume they get is 21 to place ads on yoursite about opportunity and then there’s the functions of business model special forcesof business model include things like describing the major business processes of the companydescribing the business models for limiting the ventures competitive strategy most long-termplans articulating a customer value proposition, etc. these are all things that make up a businessplan business model need to be considered e-commerce department is also the other typeof business environment considers graphical use of the common revenue models the transactionfee model where you Cindy’s first percentage for transaction credit cards operate on thismodel will take a small percentage of each transaction bank makes money off transactionssubscription models in magazines, newspapers, things like that the advertising model LaceySiegel banner ads on websites and things of that nature affiliate model were commissionsfor referring customers from one site to another sales model search another one. It includedhere is a hybrid approach where you might have website that has advertising and subscriptions. Maybe you do advertising for free based version nonsubscription based version of the websiteor for a fee for the subscription. There are no ads there’s other combinations that youcan tie together as well a lot of different typical of different types typically e-commercebusiness models. Some common ones include direct online direct marketing and the ideabehind the parking is constant. Most disintermediation. It’s the removal of certain links in the supplychain so the idea is that are selling direct manufacturer can reduce the cost of a goodor service must sell more to to consumers. Consumers are more willing to buy us costto your bidding systems are model in which a buyer which why request would be sellersto submit bids) wins sometimes is referred to as the first option the idea is that aconsumer places a the desire for good or service out there place exchange in your differentsellers that will will bid on it. Essentially lowering the price each time to try when thatparticular sale what marketplaces exchanges place brings together buyers and sellers together. Viral marketing is an example of electronic word-of-mouth subsidy through email, websites,social networking sites. I like you to present an example couple years ago of Kobe Bryantparking lot is what you so many of Sophie’s dual slot and he creeps up just as a car passesunderneath the nurse the car until innerspring left inside exits the frame of reference oninsults really, exhilarating to watch this happen appears to be done very amateurishway reality was professional production was meant to push Nike shoes and people reallyinterested to see this happen and so people constantly going to tell you to watch thisvideo is really push Nike shoes on another example of a typical e-commerce business modelis group purchasing something client May the the physical world of of taking basicallysmaller groups of taking individuals or small organizations in combining together to createlarger purchasing block so they can buy in bulk and save money. This is applying thisin an online environment. The benefits and impacts of e-commerce e-commerce is providercompetitive match does e-commerce provide competitive financial organizations. e-commercetechnologies. I think the jurors about is my personal belief e-commerce camp can providecompetitive management not sustainable competitive edge. Why because the technologies are availablefrom virtually anywhere you the keys to apply and stay on top of them all the time you haveto constantly be reinventing innovating and applying these technologies and new technologiesas they come out in order to maintain that you batch the simply adopting an e-commercesite for example is not enough. If you don’t maintain the site it will not service as asustainable competitive match the limitations and barriers of e-commerce number of limitationsto adopt e-commerce, technological, as well as not logical barriers. Possible barriersof resistance to new technology implementation difficulties. Some cases just not easy securityconcerns will restore customer data credit card information personal information so thatsometimes to be an issue. Lack of technology skills. We may not simply have the skillsto be able to implement lack of potential customers for customers in a particular fielddon’t have an interest in using computers for limited interest and costs. It’s not cheapto set up and maintain e-commerce sites but also ethical issues of the branch of philosophythat deals with what is considered the right and wrong Thursday the start, e-commerce technologieswere monitoring a recent monitoring social networking sites for employees, so they’remaking the privacy of our customers with products that we sell are we selling something thatsome consider unethical tobacco products or alcohol songs was online does not violatecertain concerns. So those are some of the issues that we have to consider as well thatbecomes a barrier. Why do we want to study e-commerce will as a student I would hopethat you’re interested in it because it’s just unexciting stuff, but reality is is yourdegree plan degree should really focusing on develop your skills to help you get aheadwere also the demand for technical, managerial e-commerce skills is why e-commerce is isimportant that’s tied to your salaries and promotion all those types of things of themore you understand e-commerce and the role that it plays with within an organizationmore likely you’re going to be able to be a personal those opportunities as they becomeavailable in your your company so this article started out with the definition of e-commerceand a description of some of the various categories of e-commerce content framework of e-commerceand so major types of e-commerce transactions e-commerce 2. 0 remembrance upgraded what traditionale-commerce and the impression that e-commerce one point we talked about description of someof of social commerce and social software we talked about the elements of the digitalworld.

Consumer society and we finished appears to talk about the limitations of e-commerceit you can’t fix everything is not designed to is it simply another tool that organizationshave to market their goods and services.

Technology Management|Cyber Security

– Hello everyone, Smart Word is here . Its an article of conversation between two persons. Understand carefully. I’m joined in the studio today by Safi, it’s a pleasure to have you here with us. – Well Shahid, the pleasure is mine,I’m excited to talk today about cyber security. – So many topics, I don’t even know where to start. Well here we are in a university,I think we should start with jobs, you know. A recent study shows that there are over a million cybersecurity jobs that are available out there. It seems like jobs would be easy to find for any student,doesn’t it make sense?It makes sense but in order to fulfill those jobs,we need people with the right skills. And there are three types of skills that the students need to get in order to have an opportunity at serving in those jobs. The first one, they need the right academic credentials. They need a bachelor’s or master’s degree that can help them prepare and understand the concepts for cyber security and protection of information assets. The second one they need, they need some experience,which they can get as they make progress in their professional careers as they take their first jobs. And also, they need some of the industry certifications that are very good in order to keep students’ skills up to date to face the latest threats and build the latest defenses. – 10 years ago, I respected the CISSP. I think it’s gotten easier, do you agree?- I’m not sure it has gotten easier. I took it when it was very very hard,at least it was very very hard for me but my experience is that people who take it recently,and I coached some of them and provided them with some advice,they still tell me that it’s quite a challenging exam,even after taking a number of graduate courses in information security and working for years in the industry. – I was speaking to someone from RSA yesterday and he said one of his best analysts has a degree in English Because understanding cyber threats more of an analytical process than technically an HTML or a coding process so the analytical ability seems to be important to have for all students and potential employees, doesn’t it?- I would say that analytical skills are very important. The ability to make sense of confusing information,imperfect data that we need to analyze and interpreting such a way that we can build the best defenses. If you ask me what would be the ideal undergraduate degree for cyber security, I would say drama because there is so much fear in the business that we certainly need to address those emotions. – You know, I teach a course in marketing here,and in marketing, it’s all about attribution. What caused that person to buy the shoes,what caused that person to buy the tickets for Hamilton. And the same is true in cyber security, attribution,who originated these emails, where’d they all start from?Is attribution an important topic for you in cyber security environments today?It’s one of the most difficult concepts to wrestle within cyber security. And there are many reasons for that. First, we did not build these technological platforms,including the internet, so that we could identify the people who are using the technology. Hence, and sometimes because we want to respect the privacy of those who use technology, Technology Management able us to manage our routines. we cannot always tell who are the culprits of a particular attack. There’s also the issue of the internet not having borders. People could be, criminals as well as victims,could be in different countries in the world. Some of the are part of the cybercrime convention,the Budapest convention where there is collaboration for investigation and prosecution, many of them are not. And finally, it’s relatively easy for the cyber criminals to obfuscate, or hide, the real sources of their attacks to relay their attacks through third parties,which makes the whole issue of attribution extremely complicated. – Very difficult. Years ago, 2,000 years ago, they’d build castles with these huge big walls to protect against arrows,but what happens if someone was inside and let the bad guy in?Today, people have firewalls, they have the edge security but a lot of times,the insider threat is really the problem. Where does the insider threat fit in with these cyber security companies trying to defend your company or organization. – We need a holistic approach to information security. I believe that organizations need a good plan,they need good processes, they need good policies,they need the appropriate products, and most importantly,they need the right people. And by the right people,are not only the cyber security professionals,but everybody else within the organization. It takes a village to achieve cyber security and everybody must do his or her partin order to contribute to it. – With the shortage of cybersecurity professionals,many are saying, well automation is a good idea. I think automation is a two-edged sword. It may automate some deficiencies as well. Will automation do something to maybe bridge the gap with the deficiency in the number of cyber security specialists?- I doubt it, and the reason for that is because both cyber attacks and cyber security defenses generate vast amounts of information and we don’t have enough analysts to comb through the information and make sense of it. Hence we’re often faced with numerous false positives as well as false negatives. Now automation, a machine learning, artificial intelligence are tools that can help us make more sense of that information. On the other hand,these two technologies are double edged swords. The same way that they can be used for good,they can be used for bad by the bad guys. In other words, they can launch attacks using artificial intelligence tools in order to find the weakest targets or the vulnerabilities that they need in order to exploit and gain access to systems. – The double edged sword. – Yes. – Exactly. Now you’re famous for your course on ethics around here. So when a student graduates and is a cyber security professional and encounters a breach,they may or may not be responsible to report it,and who do you report it to,and how much collaboration is out there?I think this is really a key subject for many students here and professionals as well, isn’t it?This whole idea of collaboration and ethical collaboration. Well there are two types of companies when it comes to hacking. Those that have been hacked and those that do not know that they have been hacked. So most of us will encounter in our careers data breaches and hacks against the assets that we defend in our companies. The main takeaway for my students is the following:do as you say, say as you do. In other words, do not conceal the truth,be honest at all times and transparent. Consult, always, with law enforcement and the in-house counsel in your organizations. And make sure always that you respect the data breach laws of the places where you operate. Beyond that, be ethical. You know, imagine, even if it’s not required by law to report something, would it look good in the front page of a newspaper if they were to report correctly what you are or not doing after a data breach. – I wanna bounce back to artificial intelligence. Last week, I was talking to doctor Mark Busby at commerce and he uses artificial intelligence to manage his data center. And I walked up to him afterwards and said”You know, I’m sick of artificial intelligence,”I want real intelligence. “I think that’s what ethics does,it makes it real, doesn’t it?- I think it does and we can’t always trust that machines are going to make the right decisions for us. Sometimes we don’t even understand the algorithms that are behind artificial intelligence. So it is not only in the design of those artificial intelligence systems that we must be ethical and consider carefully the human factor, but also they’re always needs to be some sort of human supervision of those artificial intelligence engines. – Safi, thank you so much for joining us today. It’s been an enlightening conversation,thanks to everyone out there for reading. Visit my site at this Link

Android Operating System

>> Smart World: Hi, i’m smart world. I’m an engineer on the Android Development Team. Android is an open software platform for mobile development. It is intended to be a complete stack that includes everything from the operating system through middle ware and up through applications. In the next few minutes, I’m going to be introducing you to an overview of the architecture of the Android platform. And I’m also going to talk about some of the key principles that are underlying its design. If I’m going to talk about architecture, we need to start with a diagram covered with a lot of little boxes and this is ours. Our architecture, we’re going to start at the bottom work up. Our architecture is based on the Linux 2. 6 Kernel. We use the Linux Kernel as our hardware abstraction layer. So, if you are an OEM trying to bring up Android on a new device, the first thing you do is bring up Linux and get all your drivers in place. The reason we’re using Linux is because it provides a proven driver model in a lot of cases existing drivers. It also provides memory management, process management, a security model, networking, a lot of core operating system infrastructures that are robust and have been proven over time. The next levelup is our native libraries. Everything that you see here in green is written in C and C plus, plus. It’s at this level where a lot of the core power of the Android platform comes from. I’m just going to go through and describe what some of these components are. I’m going to start with the surface manager. The surface manager is responsible for composing different drawings surfaces onto the screen. So it’s the surface manager that’s responsible for taking different windows that are owned by different applications that are running in different processes and all drawing at different times and making sure the pixelsend up on the screen when they’re supposed to. Below that we have two boxes, OpenGL/ES and SGL and these two make up the core of our graphics libraries. OpenGL/ES is a 3D library. We have a software implementation that is hardware accelerated if the device has a 3D chip on it. The SGL graphics are for 2D graphics and that is what most of our application drawing is based on. One interesting thing about the Android graphics platform is that you can combine 3D and 2D graphics in the same application. Moving over, we have the Media Framework. The Media Framework was provided by PacketVideo, one of the members of the open handset alliance and that contains all of the codex that make up the core of the media experience. So, in there you’ll find MPEG4, H. 264, MP3, AAC, all the audio and video codex you need to build a rich media experience. We use Free Type to render our fonts. We have an implementation of SQLite, we use that as the core of most of our data storage. We have WebKit which is the open source browser engine, that’s what we’reusing as a core of our browser. It’s the same browser that’s powering Safari fromApple and we’d made some, we’ve worked with that engine to make it render well onsmall screens and on mobile devices. Next is The Android Runtime. And the main componentin the Android Runtime is the Dalvik Virtual Machine. The Android Runtime was designedspecifically for Android to meet the needs of running in an embedded environment whereyou have limited battery, limited memory, limited CPU. The Dalvik Virtual Machine runssomething called dex files, D-E-X. And these are bytecodes that are the results of convertingat build time . Class and . JAR Files. So, these files when they are converted to . dex, becomea much more efficient bytecode that can run very well on small processors. They use memoryvery efficiently. The data structures are designed to be shared across processes wheneverpossible. And it uses a highly CPU optimized bytecode interpreter. The end result of thatis that it’s possible to have multiple instances of the Dalvik Virtual Machine running on thedevice at the same time, one in each of several processes and we’ll see why that’s importanta little bit later on. The next level up from that is the Core Libraries. This is in blue,meaning that it’s written in the Java programming language. And the Core library contains allof the collection classes, utilities, IO, all the utilities and tools that you’vecome to expected to use. Moving up again, we now have the Application Framework. Thisis all written in a Java programming language and the application framework is the toolkitthat all applications use. These applications include the ones that come with a phone likethe home application, or the phone application. It includes applications written by Google,and it includes applications that will be written by you. So, all applications use thesame framework and the same APIs. Again, I’m going to go through and talk about what someof the main components are in this layer, in the Application Framework. The activitymanager is what manages the life cycle of applications. It also maintains a common backstackso that applications that are running in different processes can have a smoothly integrated navigationexperience. Next down from that is the package manager. The package manager is what keepstrack of which applications are installed on your device. So, if you download new applicationsover the air or otherwise install applications, it’s the package manager that’s responsiblefor keeping track of what you have and what the capabilities of each of your applicationsare. The window manager manages Windows. It’s mostly a Java programming language abstractionon top of lower level services that are provided by the surface manager. The telephony managercontains the APIs that we use to build the phone application that’s central to thephone experience. Content providers are a unique piece of the Android platform. That’sa framework that allows applications to share their data with other applications. We usethat in our contacts application so that all of the information in contacts, phone numbers,addresses, names is available to any application that wants to make use of them. And otherapplications can use that facility as well to share data. The resource manager is whatwe use to store local iStrings, bitmaps, layout file descriptions, all of the external partsof an application that aren’t code. I’m just going to touch lightly on the remainingfour boxes, view system, location manager, notification manager and XMPP service. Theview system contains things like buttons and lists, all the building blocks of the UI. It also handles things like event dispatching, layout, drawing. Location manager, notificationmanager and XMPP service are some APIs that I think will allow developers to create reallyinnovative and exciting applications. And the final layer on top is Applications. Thisis where all the applications get written. It includes the home application, the contactsapplication, the browser, your applications. And everything at this layer is, again, usingthe same application framework provided by the layers below. Now, if you’re going towrite an application, the first step is to decompose it into the components that aresupported by the Android platform. Here are the four major ones. We have activity, intentreceiver, service, and content provider. An activity is essentially just a piece of UItypically corresponding to one screen. So if you think of something like the mail application,that would be decomposed into maybe three major activities, something that lists yourmail, something that shows you what an individual mail message and a compose screen to put togetheran outgoing email. An intent receiver is something different. An intent receiver is a way forwhich your application to register some code that won’t be running until it’s triggeredby some external event. And the set of external events that triggers your code is open andextensible. So you can write some code and through XML, register it to be woken up andrun when something happens, when the network, the network activities established or at acertain time or when the phone rings or whatever trigger makes sense for your application. The next major component is a service. A service is a task that doesn’t have any UI, that’slong lived, that’s running in the background. A good example is a music player. You maystart playing some music from an activity, from a piece of UI, but once the music isplaying, you’d want it to keep playing even if you’re navigating to other parts of theuser experience. So the code that’s actually running through the playlist playing songswould be a service, that’s running in the background. You can connect to it later ifyou want to from an activity or some other component by binding to the service and sendingmessages like “skip to the next” or “rewind. ” The last component is a content provider and,again, that’s a component that allows you to share some of your data with other processesand other applications. Now, any application can store data in whatever may–way it makessense for that application. They can store it in the files. They can store it in oursuper light database, whatever makes sense. But if they want to make that data availableas part of the platform so that other applications can make use of it, then the content provideris the solution for that and we’ve used that for the context database that comes with theAndroid platform so that any application can make use of the information in context. Androidwas designed at a fundamental level to encourage reusing and replacing components. I have anexample here that shows how that works. On the left, there are four applications thatmight want to pick a photo for some reason. So the home application might want to pickit for wallpaper. Contacts might want to pick a person’s face to associate with theircontact card. Gmail or MMS, you might want to have a photo that you sent to someone inan outgoing message. Now, an Android for these applications to make use of the service oftaking a photo, they first need to make a request. So the client component makes a requestfor specific action. In this case, I’m illustrating that with a talk balloon and the Gmail applicationis requesting that it picks a photo. So the talk balloon is actually representation ofa formal class in our system called an intent. What the system does when a request is madeis it looks at all of the installed components and it finds the best available componentthat knows how to do whatever was asked for. In this case, let’s say that the systemfinds the built-in photo gallery. Now, what happens is the Gmail application is now connectedto the photo gallery. When the user in Gmails wanted to pick a photo, he will be taken tothe photo gallery and the photo gallery will fulfill whatever was asked for in the intent. What makes this interesting is that the picking of the matching component is late bound, it’sdone very late and so you can swap software components at any time. So let’s say youdidn’t like the built-in photo gallery and you wanted to replace it with one that wentonline to find a richer or bigger set of photos. You can replace our built-in photo gallerywith one that say goes out to Picasso or whatever your favorite online photo site is. Once you’vedone that, then any of the applications on the left will now use the new and better componenton the right to fulfill the task of picking a photo. And at any time, a new applicationcan come along and make use of existing functionality. So if you’re writing a blogger application,you don’t have to worry about writing a photo picker yourself. You can just rely onwhichever one the user has configured to be their preferred photo picking application. This becomes really important because in Android, it’s not just about picking photos, virtuallyany task has an intent in the middle. If the user is going from point A to point B, there’san intent in the middle and each of those intents is an opportunity to reuse a componentor to replace a component. So we have intents for going home which means you can replacea home application. Or we have an intent for sending an email which means you can replacethe mail application. All of these are opportunities for replacing and reusing components. If you’reinterested in finding out more about Android, I encourage you to visit the developer siteand download the SDK. In the SDK, you’ll find a lot more documentation and sample codeand you’ll also be able to try building applications of your own. There’s also adeveloper group that you can join to find out more information and I also encourageyou to check back frequently because we’ll be posting updates to the SDK as the platformmatures. Thank you for watching.

A Brief History of Robotics

Hi Friends Smart World is here. You’d think the Robot Revolution would have happened by now, with the self-aware robots taking over the world, becoming our overlords, making us work in the tungsten mines. Well,the thing is, the Robot Revolution already is happening. To know about news and more articles about Robots this visit this link. It’s been happening for decades. It’s just been a lot less bloody than the movies made us think it would be, and the robots are not self-aware. . . yet, but in all likelihood, your car was made by a robot. These days, there are robots helping spacecraft dock at the International Space Station, and you might even have one faithfully vacuuming your kitchen floor. Not exactly Skynet, butall of the convenience that we already enjoy thanks to robots took decades of hard work by scientists, and some of the problems that robotics engineers were struggling with fifty years ago still haven’t been solved, so there’s a whole lot of history that went into the robots that we rely on today, and it just might help you understand why we don’t have robots taking care of our every need, or forcing us to mine their tungsten. [Intro]If we’re going to talk about the history of robotics, first, we need to talk about what a robot actually is, and for such a common term, it’s surprisingly slippery to define,but technically speaking, a robot is just a machine designed to accomplish a task. That’sit. Now, it might sound like that would cover everything from a four-function calculator to NASA’s Pleiades Supercomputer, but that is not what we’re talking about here. When we talk about robots, we’re really talking about machines that use their programming to make decisions. For example, if you, a human, decide to pick up a coin from the ground,there are three main steps you have to go through. First, your eyes need to see the coin and then send that information to your brain. Then, your brain processes that inputand uses things like previous experience to make a decision to pick it up. Eventually,your brain sends messages to your body to grasp the coin. Robots go through a similar process, but without the getting the Slim Jim at the gas station. They can go through that process because most of the time, they have the components that let them carry out each step. They have sensors for input, control systems for decision-making,and end effectors for output. Sounds simple enough, but developing each of these components can be challenging. Sensors have to be able to detect things like images and sound accurately, effectors have to be flexible and fast enough to do what we need them to do, and the control system has to make all of the decisions necessary to get the sensors and effectors working together. Of course, there are so many different kinds of robots that these components can vary considerably,but that’s the basics of robot anatomy. Now if we tried to talk about every advance that’s been made in every subfield of robotics in just the past half-century, we’d be here all day. But to understand how we’ve gotten this far and why robots haven’t taken over the world yet, we first have to talk about how the development of industrial, humanoid, and military robots got the field where itis today. Industry is a good place to start, because that’s where robots first became useful. Since factory work can be repetitive and often involves lifting lots of heavy stuff, it’s a perfect fit for a machine. The world’s first ever industrial robot, Unimate, was installed on a General Motors production line in New Jersey in 1961. Weighing in at nearly a metric ton,it was basically a giant robot arm. Its instructions programmed on a huge magnetic drum told the arm to stack and weld hot pieces of metal over and over again. Soon, other car companies got in on the game, installing their own robotic arms. But this first generation of robots was still in its awkward stage. The arms weren’t particularly flexible, they were often powered by clunky hydraulics, and they were ultimately difficult to program. So when a robotic arm called IRB-6 came along in 1974, it was a pretty big deal. This was the first electric industrial robot that was controlled by a microcomputer. Ithad 16 KB of RAM, it was programmable, and it could display four whole digits with its LEDs. Developed by a Swedish engineering firm, ABB, this robot was used to perform inauspicious tasks like polishing steel tubes, but it was a crucial step toward developing robots that were easier to program. But while controlling robotic arms was getting simpler, another issue came up. You can give a robot as much programming as you want, but if it can’t see, it’s not going to be able to do even seemingly simple things, like figure out which box should go where on a pallet. Crude visual scanners had been around since the ’50s; they could only see black and white,and the resolution was worse than what you get from a flip phone camera. But to give vision to industrial robots, engineers had to tap into another field that would completely change the robotics game: artificial intelligence. Now, artificial intelligence, or AI, is another broad, vague term used to describe any attempt to make a computer do something that we’d normally associate with human intelligence,like translate languages or play chess or recognize objects. In the 60s, the problem was that even though AIs were getting better at complex reasoning tasks, like playing chess and proving mathematical theorems, it was incredibly difficult to actually get the programs to interact with the real world. There’s a difference, for example, between figuring out the ideal placement of wooden blocks in a theoretical model and actually moving those blocks into place, because moving them involves a whole series of discrete decisions and actions,and the robots at the time simply couldn’t manage that. For robots, vision isn’t just about taking pictures, it’s also about recognizing objects so that they can react to things and situations in real time. By the late 1970s, engineers had developed new algorithms that allowed cameras to recognize edges and shapes by using visual cues like highlights and shadows, but these programs were still just experimental,stuck in research labs. That all changed in 1981, when the first industrial robot got the gift of vision. A General Motors factory was once again the guinea pig, implementing a system called Consight,in which three separate robots could use visual sensors to pick out and sort six different kinds of auto parts as 1,400 parts per hour moved by on a conveyor belt. Progress! For the next two decades, technology kept improving {–|–} industrial robots were able to see better,move faster, carry heavier loads, and handle more decisions. These days, industrial robots are advanced enough that it’s totally normal for a factory to install a robotic assembly line that handles nearly all of its production, and some industrial robots are heading in the direction of a more general purpose use, like Baxter, the humanoid industrial robot. Humanoid, yet again a very subjective term, but it just means human-like. For robots, that usually implies that they’re designed to look and act as human-like as possible. So Baxter, for instance, is nearly two meters tall, weighs 136 kg, and has a screen fora face. It also has a vaguely human-shaped torso and two arms. But more importantly,it can be quickly programmed to do practically anything. If a factory worker or researcher has a task to do, Baxter can probably handle it, as long as it’s lifting less than 2. 2kg, because its arms are not industrial strength. But it does need to be told what to do. If you want Baxter to stack some products in a box, for instance, you’ve got to program it by manually making it do what you want the first time, and then it’ll imitate that task. And its shape may be loosely based on a human, but Baxter cannot walk or climb stairs or talk, so getting a robot to act like a human has proved to be a whole other ballgame, and it’s one that researchers have been working on for decades, and it’s been slow going. The Wabot I is usually considered to be the first full-scale humanoid robot. Developed by researchers at Waseda University in Japan in 1973, it had arms, legs, and a vision system. It could walk, it could pick things up with its hands, it could even talk. Except that it could only reply with pre-recorded responses to very specific statements, and it took 45 seconds to take one step. This bot and its successor Wabot II were a really big dealin their day, but they also pointed out an important fact: it’s just much easier to design robots to do one task at a time. So recently, the thinking has been if general purpose humanoid robotics are out of our grasp,we might as well focus on making something that can do at least one useful task. That’s why in the past 10 years, there have been more household robots in use than ever, programmed to perform a single function like vacuuming the floor, mowing the lawn, washing windows or cleaning the pool. They’re not quite Rosie from The Jetsons, but they were all made possible by the advances that came before them, like having the ability to sense their surroundings and make decisions in order to navigate the world. And it’s not like researchers have given up on the humanoid front. There are humanoid robots in development that can perform some impressive feats. Honda’s Asimo, for example,can walk at speeds of almost 6 kilometers an hour, climb up and down stairs, carry atray, push a cart, among other things. So again, progress. You just can’t buy one. For the time being, Asimo is basically a research tool and a spokesmodel for what the future of robotics might look like. But probably the most cutting edge research going on in robotics today is being done by the military. Take BEAR, a military robot that’s been in development since 2005. Unlike with humanoid or even single task robots, in the military, robot design is more aboutfunction than form. So BEAR has some humanoid components, like a head and two arms, but instead of walking like a human, its legs are covered in treads, like a tank. The legs have a joint that acts kind of like a knee that can rotate all the way around. Using their special limb design, BEAR has proven really good at moving through rough terrain,including stairs. It can climb through debris, carry an injured soldier back to base, it can carry light loads; tell it to go to a location and it’ll go there. That’s a lot more than most civilian robots can do. But discussion of military robots would not be complete without talking about DARPA. A division of the US Department of Defense, DARPA has been working for the last 50 years to turn even the wackiest of concepts into working technology, and it’s been one of the most active promoters in the field of robotics. DARPA has stoked innovation by holding robot competitions; it held contests for autonomous vehicles where robotic cars compete in a race,hundreds of kilometers through the Mojave Desert, and in the summer of 2015, 11 teams will compete in the DARPA Robotics Challenge Finals, where human supervised robots will try to carry out complicated and kind of dangerous tasks associated with disaster response, like scrambling over debris and carrying things to safety. The aim is to develop robots that can be sent into dicey situations without putting human lives at risk, and we’re getting there. So robot tech has come a long way since that first robotic arm in 1961, it’s just that,as often is the case when it comes to humans and technology, we can dream up awesome designs and uses for robots faster than we can actually invent them. For now, I’m perfectly happy to have a clean kitchen floor and my freedom from the tungsten mines while science takes robotics to the next level. Thanks for reading this SMart World Infusion.

Apple iPhone X vs Samsung Galaxy S8!

[Stylish World] Hey guys, Stylish is here. Without a doubt Samsung’s Galaxy S8 is one of the most impressive phones of 2017. The iPhone X however is officially here and with that I think it’s time to see how these two stack up side by side. Now clearly once you put these phones next to each other in terms of the design,aesthetics and really just overall looks,not to sugarcoat it or anything but the Galaxy S8is miles ahead. The iPhone X definitely does have some very impressive features, but design wise,it really hasn’t changed much over the years. So honestly for all intents and purposes,it very well could have been called the iPhone 7S. The Galaxy S8 on the other hand is a completely different story. It has this beautiful bezel-less display that looks like it’s straight outta the future. And I’ve said it before but I still think the Galaxy S8 is arguably the best looking phone of 2017. Now with the upcoming iPhone X that very well may change that statement for me,but that is different comparison for a different day. For now, and especially because both the iPhone 8 and Galaxy S8 are very similar in pricing we’re gonna focus on these two phones. Now regardless, both of these are very impressive devices and I’m sure most of you out there would love to win either of these. So with that you have a chance to win either a brand new Galaxy S8 or iPhone 8, the choice is yours. But if you wanna go crazy and we can get to 100,000 likes I will give away both of these. So for a chance to win go ahead and check out the link down below. But the main thing to do is make sure you subscribe,so if you haven’t don’t that, make sure you hit that subscribe button. Huge shout out to The Walking Dead: No Man’s Land for sponsoring this comparison and giveaway. I was actually super excited they wanted to do that because I freaking love The Walking Dead. If you guys haven’t checked out the game it is turn based action strategy game where you battle those walkersand you can do so with Daryl, Rick, Glenn and even the ninja master with a stick, Morgan. Now as much as I love those guys, there’s a part of me that can’t help but root for Megan and Lucille. So if you’re a Megan fan too, right now you can download the game which is free in both the App Store and the Play Store before September 30th you get Megan for free. This game is super addicting. And if you can’t get enough Walking Dead there’s a unique storyline written specifically just for this game. There are weekly challenges and two huge updates just dropped. First is the Distance which is a brand new game mode which is specifically for players which have reached Council Level 18 and this is designed so you can put those skills to the test in a brand new Survival Mode. It’s a little challenging because characters will not be able to heal in between missions. But if you’re up for the challenge, it’s worth it because new rewards will drop each time the Distance event occurs. This allows you collect components for your mission crates and craft badges for your survivors. Both these updates are available now,so make sure you check out the links below. And whether you’re on team iPhone or team Android if you’re a fan of The Walking Dead you’re gonna dig this game. Now unfortunately with the iPhone X it still connects to a lightning port and surprise, surprise does not have a headphone jack. So two potential advantages with the Galaxy S8,is one, USB C and two, the fact that you can connect a pair of wired headphones without any adapter. Now another potential advantage with the Galaxy S8is MicroSD card expandability. Now I don’t want to turn this into an iOS versus Android war. For me I’ve never really felt the need to store anything on a MicroSD card but for some it may be big deal and if that’s the case, that is clearly where the Galaxy S8 has one up. Some of you might notice that both the iPhone 8 and Galaxy S8 feature an all glass back. Now that’s because both of these feature wireless charging. Clearly this isn’t anything new to Samsung or the Galaxy line up. It is however brand new to the iPhone X. They’re using a wireless Qi standard and not some proprietary crap. So the fact that it’s finally here on the iPhone is only gonna help wireless charging become further adopted and that is better for everybody. The one thing mention though in terms of fast charging or quick charging, that is something you getright out of the box with the Galaxy S8 whereas with the iPhone 8 you’re going to need to spend nearly $100 in accessories just to get that which is kinda crazy. So definitely a plus one to Samsung for providing Quick Charge out of the box, and unfortunately in typical Apple fashion, you’re gonna pay more for adapters and accessories. For me though, whether I’m on Android or iPhone I’m usually plugged into an Anker Power Bank or wall charger so I’ve never really felt like my phone needs to charge faster. This is their brand new PowerCore II which packs 20,000 mAh of juice inside,so battery for days. It really doesn’t matter which device you’re on,it just works and it works well. So if you’re interested in checking on out,I would drop a link down below. Now from there, jumping into displays. It is not even close. The Galaxy S8 here is the clear winner. It features a beautiful and I mean beautiful 5. 8 inch Super AMOLED display. It’s bright it’s colorful, it’s vibrant and the lack of bezels kinda just makes you wanna stare in awe at it, and there is really no other word to describe it than impressive. With the display Samsung also did a fantastic job of implementing a virtual home button into the screen and it just works really well. The downside to that is that Samsung could not implement the finger print reader into the displayso in turn it is located awkwardly on the backnext to the camera which I’m still not a fan of. Unlike the iPhone X, the iPhone 8 does however have a fingerprint reader or Touch ID up front so in terms of that, I definitely prefer the iPhone 8. That though unfortunately does not help the iPhone 8’s display when stacked upside by side against the Galaxy S8. Now the iPhone 8 is not a bad display by any means. Its got a beautiful white color gamut, bright, true tone,actually works really well but it just kinda pales in comparison in both size and resolution. It is a 4. 7 inch display with a 750P resolution. And again when you stack it side by side against the Galaxy S8 it’s not even close. So while the display is a clear advantage to the Galaxy S8if we look under the hood, the iPhone 8 might surprise you. Yes, the Galaxy S8 has an eight core processor and I’ve seen people make fun of the iPhone 8,the iPhone X for finally getting a six core processor. But the fact is the A11 Bionic chip is nuts. Stacked up side by side against the Galaxy S8it completely smashes and obliterates it. The big thing with that A11 chip is that when it needs to it’s gonna utilize all six of those coresat the same time whereas with the Galaxy S8,it is actually two pairs of quad core processors. That in turn is why the iPhone 8 and especially in multi-core performance does so well. And just for reference that is on par with a 13 inch MacBook Pro which is crazy in terms of a smartphone. Again, I don’t want to turn this into a war or negate how awesome the Galaxy S8 is,because it is a fantastic, beautiful, really fast phone. But in terms of performance, it is clear that Apple is miles ahead. From there I wanna jump over to cameras because honestly that is probably one of the most important features to pretty much everybody out there. Both the iPhone 8 and Galaxy S8 feature 12MP shooter son the back and in terms of performance goes as far as photography, both do an amazing job. The showcase that I think these two pictures here are a prime example of why that is the case,this was shot on the Galaxy S8 which is an amazing picture but if we hop over to the iPhone 8, it is pretty much equally as impressive. I’m not sure which I like more but I think either way you would not be disappointed with either of these. Same thing here with these pictures,I think the iPhone 8 does a fantastic job of capturing the highlights, the shadows,not over blowing the sunset. But it’s pretty much the same thing on the Galaxy S8. The only advantage I would say the S8 has with this picture over here is if we crop it and zoom in, it does retain sharpness just a little bit better over the iPhone 8. Now into where I prefer the Galaxy S8 over the iPhone 8 is this alpha balance shot right here. The iPhone 8, it is every so slightly just a little over washed, a littler over exposed. But as we hop over to the Galaxy S8,it kinda just holds everything together better. The colors pop more and overall it’s just a more pleasing image. From then we move into more of a lower light situation. I think both the iPhone 8 and Galaxy S8do a really fantastic job. I think with the iPhone 8,you get a more natural true to life image with more accurate colors,whereas with the Galaxy S8 it looks great but it tends to cool things down a bit but overall it was just a sharper image. Now as far as the front facing cameras go that hands down goes to the Galaxy S8. I’ve always liked their wide angle lens. The iPhone has just never really felt wide enough. And as you can see as we stack them side by side,both do a really impressive job but I just prefer the look of the Galaxy S8 more. Now from there, one clear advantage the iPhone 8 has over the Galaxy S8 is when it comes to video standard. The iPhone 8 will shoot up to 4K at 60 frames per second. That’s something the Galaxy S8 does not do. So for reference here’s an example of bothat 4K 30. So we’re here on the iPhone 8 testing out 4K 30FPS video. Also gonna get a little test out to the stabilization. We’re gonna walk around, give it a little back and forth. Rich with the crispy shirt. Looking good with the tricolors. Ralphy holding down the camera. And now let’s hop over to the Galaxy S8. Holy crop factor, we’re here on the Galaxy S8. Moving around again, test out the stabilization. Video quality looks good, I’m curious to see how it reacts a little bit, moving in, grabbing focus. That’s pretty quick. Tricolors one more time. It looks crisp here, not gonna lie. Back to Ralphy, and lemme know which you think looks better with a comment down below. The other big deal with the iPhone 8is 1080P 240FPS slow motion video which is crazy. Here’s a quick example of the 240FPS slow motion video on the iPhone 8. Again, this is not something the Galaxy S8 even doesso I can’t truly compare apples to apples. To make it a little more even here’s what 120FPS slow motion video looks like on the iPhone 8 and you can see it does a really amazing job. Clearly my rock juggling skills could use some improvement but as we hop over to the Galaxy S8, you can see in terms of clarity and just overall quality it is miles better on the iPhone 8. Now ultimately it really comes down to preference and ecosystem. Both of these are fantastic high quality phones. The Galaxy S8 is far superior in terms of design,hardware, the display. And while the iPhone 8 may not look the most impressive on the outside, it is packing some serious power and impressive features inside. With the Galaxy S8 and more specifically Android you’re clearly getting more customization,more freedom, more flexibility whereas with the iPhone 8 and more specifically iOS 11, yes it can be limiting but in terms of the ecosystem the App Store it is second to none. For me, both these are fantastic phones,and again it is a great time to be alive in terms of technology. Hopefully this article kinda showcase what is cool about each of these phones and helped you with your choice. Aside from that, thank you guys very much for watching. If you missed it I just dropped a brand new iPhone 8 Plus versus 8 unboxing and comparison. You can check that out here or check out the link below.

Credit card or Debit card or ATM card

Hi friends i’m your favourite “Smart Word“. In this article i’ll tell you about Bank card like Debit and Credit card which are basically ATM cards. A credit card or debit card or ATM card is issued usually by a bank However some other service providers are also issuing credit cards nowadays Debit cards and ATM cards are directly linked to your bank account But a credit card is not linked to a bank account That means, debit cards are prepaid.  Credit cards and debit cards both are used to make payments to merchants or sellers for goods and services While an ATM card is only used to withdraw cash from ATMs So, a credit card or debit card can be used online or in POS machines,in shops and other places to pay Debit and credit cards offer multiple ways to access money without any need to carry cash or a checkbook around Debit cards are more like digitized versions of checkbooks They are linked to your bank account and money is withdrawn or debited from the account as soon as the transaction occurs.  Credit cards are different they offer a line of credit or Loan that is interest free if the monthly credit card bill is paid on time But if you fail to pay the bill on time, there will be a fine or interest rate applied with the main payable sum!Instead of being connected to a personal bank account, a credit card is connected to the bank or financial institution that issued the card.  So, when you use a credit card the issuer or bank pays the merchant on behalf of you and you go into debt to the bank.  Debit cards and ATM cards can be used to withdraw cash from ATMs because they are linked to your bank account.  But on the other hand, usually a credit card cannot be used to withdraw cash because, yes you guessed it right!They are not linked to a bank account.  Then again, nowadays credit cards can actually be used to withdraw cash from ATMs,which is considered as cash in advance and those transactions are not free, they are chargeable.  Nowadays, ATM cards are becoming rare day by day because an ATM card has only one job,which is withdrawing cash, and a debit card can serve that purpose.  So, the banks endorse debit cards more Okay, let’s talk about EMIs now.  EMI is easily available with credit cards, but not with debit cards.  Then again, nowadays,EMI can be availed with debit cards as well but the availability varies from bank to bank and merchant to merchant Yearly charges and other service charges vary from bank to bank for credit cards and debit cards and many banks offer zero yearly charges Per transaction charges for debit cards are coming down day by day and mostly there are no such charges There are lots of payment network companies like Visa, MasterCard, Maestro, American Express, RuPay etc. on the credit and debit cards but not on the ATM cards because ATM cards are not used to pay online or offline merchants or sellers But again, these kinds of cards are really very rare.  The dedicated ATM cards that serve only one purpose are nowadays not endorsed by banks anymore The banks work in collaboration with the payment network companies to make the whole payment system going Last but not the least, a credit check is required to get a credit card.  The bank will check your credit history and maybe current financial status.  It is done from their end to make sure that you are well able to pay the money back after spending it with the credit card But a debit card doesn’t require such credit checks because it is prepaid Hit the like button if you liked the video and don’t forget to subscribe and hit the bell icon If you have any question or if you have anything to say just comment it down below.  Share the video,Maybe someone will find it useful.

Twitter Article For Beginner

Hello everyone and welcome to our class on Twitter now before we begin one thing I want to mention this class is designed for anyone out there who is brand new to Twitter and also for those of you who maybe have been using a little bit but just need help with some of the basics. I do want to mention you will find over the course of this classI am NOT going to mention by name my twitter handle it will appear on the screen inevitably but I’m not going to mention it by name the reason being isI am NOT one of those people whose is trying to get a million followers.  That’snot my goal My goal in creating this class and all of our classes is to help inform the people out there who really need this information.  If you do want to follow me I’m thrilled I’m flattered but that’s not the goal with this class so I hope you enjoy it without any further ado here’s our class on Twitter coming up next on PCClassesOnline. com The first step in creating new Twitter profile is to go to Twitter. com and fill out this littleform here just put in your name email address and password.  One little tip I want to give you is if you’re having trouble creating really good passwords you may want to check out a class that we did recently called 1password.  I will put a link to in the description the video for those people were interested in that kind of thing now also in the sign up process you can end up creating your Twitter handle this just your profile name.  You can see mine here on the screen butas I mentioned I can actually say it out loud just my own little reasons anyways once you’ve created that you’re going to start to assemble the other elements of your profile and I’m gonna go to the edit button here so I can really start to display them the first is to find a photo so it can be a photo at you it can be a photo of your logo if you’re doing this as a business whatever you want it might even be your store front then you can put your name again it could be your name it can be the name of your business whatever your preference and then a short little description now this description can include hyperlink scan include hash tags I’m gonna give you definitions in just a moment also a trick if you have a very long website address how to shorten it then you’re gonna put your location and if you do have it you can also put your website address here at the very very bottom you can also choose a theme coloral though it’s not really all that important whatever you choose you also see here at the very top of your profile you can put a header photo now please please ignore mine I’m actually about to swap it out any day now I just haven’t had a moment to design it. on your head a profile for those of you who are doing this as an individual a lot of people will do just a wide screen photo could be if you could be of nature could be where you live.  For those who are inbusinessI really strongly recommend hiring a professional graphic designer there’s a bunch of different options out there course one really inexpensive option not necessary the highest quality but is inexpensive a to at least mention is there is a website out there called Fiverr.com. It’s a little website where you can pay people five dollars to do a gig for you I’ve used them occasionally for things like this so you might want to check them out when you go to the website to search for the word Twitter. You’ll find plenty of people who are willing to design your profile header now once you’ve created your actual profile let’s start talking about the actual uses for Twitter now earlier when I taught this class I asked everyone for those people out there who didn’t use Twitter why didn’t they and the big are the number one reason I receive from people was that they just didn’t really see the purpose of it and my argument has always been you have to craft your purpose and then you have to make what you put out there and who you follow to match that purpose So the top uses for Twitter are number one news and it can be news on a local national or international scale whatever it is that interests you that’s what she should go for one of the best examples I loved during our live class was a gentleman who said he has a kid who attends school and he wants to find out when schools closed whether due to weather whatever reason maybe so the school will tweet out if schools closed it’s certainly a lot easier than having to watch the news watch little ticker go across the bottom of the screen by the way for those of you out there who are parents are interested in doing that I’ll give you an extra little trick about that in a little bit second reason comic relief over the course of this you are gonna end up seeing who I follow and you want things you may pick up on as yet I follow quite a few comedians I love Jimmy Fallon love Chris Hardwick people like that Dana Gould People who just make me laugh I like to fill my life with laughter with people who are kinda you just happy positive people I’m so I tend to follow a good amount of comedian so far that little joke here in there that’s one of the reasons why do it nextis per trending topics this is useful for some people in business depending on what it is you do on a lot of the different screens you’ll see on Twitter For example even if I just go to the homepage you’ll see here at the top left corner there are trending topics okay a lot is trending topics are either there because our news stories that are taking place are or have taken place on also celebrities get weed out different havestaggs topics and that will trigger a trending topic so it’s a good way to stay informed what’s going on both in real news in pop culture that kinda thing to the next is for salesleadsas well as customer leads are using Twitter for business is definitelysomething that has grown over the yearsand what are the best ways to do that is to use Twitterads I think we’re gonna probably end up doing a separate classon Twitter for business but you can use thatif you’re business a small business I’m I would like to give youright now want the greatest little simplesimple tricks for businesses and this is really for people whothose of you who have a brick-and-mortar store okay see a place where peoplecome into everyone knows it’s a good idea to put a poster up and say heytweet son you know to follow us on Twitter but you have to give them a motivationand sometimes he also have to give them easier wayto do it I may give you a special little hyper Lakein the description of this period is something i think is pretty cool it’s aspecial kindsticker they can go in any businessand the sticker has embedded within it and and FCchip what that means is for people who have a smartphoneespecially lot of the newer smartphones they can actually hold their phoneright up to the sticker and dot will automaticallymake them like you on Twitter same thing applies by the way to Facebook sabalinks to both of thosein the description of the video I just wanted a little tricks I wanted to giveyou todayI was gonna given at the very end the class but ayou made it this far but will report a right off the bat sothat’s a one little reason business keeping gaugedwith your customers another trick I would like to give youis that the key to a successful tweetis one that is engaging thinkdialogue not monologue not to say that it’s not occasionally okayby if you’re trying to do this again for business you want to engage with yourfollowersnext thing I is for local newsokay sometimes there’s gonna be you know what do we do tonight where do we go outfor dinner wellactually look right herethis is a little local a market where I live you know they’re tweeting out theirspecialsokay the one little thing I would say these guys could probably done betterit’s a great idea to include photo asphotos let’s face it photos make a pop I next reasonis customer service there’s a million stories out there on Twitterabout people who use Twitter for customer service purposesmy piece of advice to you is be appropriate especially if you’re the onewho’smaybe not the happiest customer are an example give youI was my colleague Mark Collier who does all her website design he’s about toTana classes on Word Presswith PC classes online I mark wastweeting one day about this app called Flipboardand their at the time competitor and was talking about what he liked thecompetitorbetter than Flipboard well the footboard CEO saw that tweetand started private messaging with Mark asking himwhat they could do better to make him kind of start using their serviceso marks a smart guy gave them a bunch of advicecouple weeks go by the actually took it to heartthey included those suggestions and updated footboardso now I can say that my employees actually part of thesuccessive footboard in some strange way so that’s an examplealso a great example using Twitter for customer service is when you’re havingairline trouble I myself was stranded in Houston Texas recentlystarted tweeting with JetBlue within to minutesthey responded to me they can make it a lot easierand I’m just give you another little tip if you’re on a flightand your landing and your connection is really really tightyou tweak the airline they will sometimes hold the flightif they know that your baby just running five or 10 minutes late really goodpiece of adviceI recommend using that one I next thingis for sale specials kinda already mentioned it or iI didn’t mean to but if you our business you have a specialart example I like to give his if you’re a bakery okay if you have a betterproduct is about to go badlet’s get rid of it so we don’t have to you know just throw it outthe senate weed out to their followers say hey come in the next half an hourand get forty percent of all this productand it’s a great way to easily advertise that special in it I could cost youanything to do thatnow let’s go over some definitions now so theseI policies I my to I apologize are reallyreally basic I tweet a tweet is a messageit’s a public message that you put out there to the world you can do it bygoing to thehome screen to Twitter you have a 140 characters to composethis message included in that you can have hyperlinksagain I will give you a trick to shorten them in a little bit photosthat will also shorten the number of available characters Iand hash tags which brings me to the next definition:ashtec’s an example the hash tag I might beyou know today I later on this evening is the Oscarsokay so I could say you know routingfor you know Bradley the Cooperhappens to his name right I fortonight’s and then hash tag oscarsand you’ll see as soon as I started typing that gave mesuggestions in this case it’s the year 2015 peopleoscars 2015 so what it means is that if someone were to either clickon Oscars 2013 birthday search for itmy tweet will appear among the responses a great example of how that is becomingmore and more popularthere’s different talk shows like at midnight the tonight show with JimmyFallonwhere they will put a quick hash tag out like worst Christmas presentever and it’s a challenge you know the viewershave a 140 characters minus the hash tag to come up with a funnyyou know worst Christmas present story and it’s funny enough they might evenget on national television so it’s a way for those showsto interact with the fans and aare able to organize those thoughts by using ashtec’sso tempted berkeley the hash tag is going to be the subjectup whatever your writing about you know in my caseI do tend to focus on a lot of the Apple products somy maybe you know a the hash tag Apple watch is coming out soonsomething like that just group it together hash tagsultimately will also help you gamein followers because if someone is looking for who is theyou know expert when it comes to Apple products I want them to be able tosearch for Apple and have my namepop-up as an example nextdefinition we’re gonna go over is a DM also known as adirect message so the difference between a direct messagein a tweet is that a tweet is going to be public for everyone to seea direct message is just between two people I like to read the officialdefinition of direct message cuzit just seems to be well written about that you can understand itso here we go you can only senda direct message to users who follow youand you can only receive messages from users that youfollow I hope that made sense so I it’s basically just that one-on-oneconversation you can’t send a direct message to justanyone om so thatscognex definition I let’s see here next me every tweetokay reach week very similar on Facebook too are sharing someone else’sstatus source sharing someone else post so for exampleif I really this looks really good to me you see here this little symbol righthereand when I hover my cursor over while the options is retrieved it just meansthat when I click thatits gonna go out as if it were me okay but I’m putting out the sameinformation there is another option but you don’t haveaccess to it from the Twitter website something I found very strangelet me screen over here for a moment to the Twitterap for Mac csce in this case if I clickon that same icon there’s a second optioncalled quote REIT we quote re tweet means that I canhad my own whatever to it so I can sayyou know check out this great special something like that ona Kodak next definition: his favoritefavorite very similar to a thumbs-up I in YouTubealike on Facebook just basically you saying good joblike the content and Satan click right here you can see this little star onevery postclick back to favored the post lot of times if someone sends meyou know a message saying you know good work for what we’re doingno a favorite Iit says new samples where just acknowledging that I’ve seen it and Iappreciate theirkind words the next definition: wanna go for is the usage%uh the at symbol so when you’re composing a tweet sometimes you want tobring it toward someone’s attentionit would say I’m tweeting about what else Apple essaycan’t wait for details on the upcominghash tag Applecar which tape rumored to be releasing in 2020and I want to bring it to Tim Cook’sattention okay well Tim doesn’t know me he probably will never ever see thisyou never know so what I would do it I would at this pointadd the at symbol and because I R E followed him it’s gonna come up rightaway but i wanna hit TII am you can seize a third option there sonya addthe at symbol and start to put in someone’s nameit just basically means that they’re going to be be notified up itup here where it says notifications in the case of a celebrity the other thanactually sing it are fairly slimbut I’m actually friends with the couple celebrities in some them to actuallyread quite a few of thosecomments and even though they don’t respond to a lot of them they doactually see themso that’s one-way to tag someone in a postthat is the way to tag someone in a post I next thing we’re gonna start to talkaboutis navigation Twitter now right now I’m sure you from the Twitter websitea lot of people in the use Twitter to use the various aP’s I myselfI actually really enjoy the basic Twitter app for iPhoneon I don’t use anything really special I started kinda experimenting a little bitwith thenew one called Twitterrific om haven’t really for much but opinion aboutit risks I’m used it a lot om butthe navigation above the website is pretty darnsimple so obviously up here at the top left we have thehome page that gets you to your main Twitter feed next we have notificationsin this includes things likepeople who favor did your tweets people who havetagged you in messages people who favoritedI’m sorry people who have followed you recentlyI et cetera she’ll find out those little notification sort of like the globe iconon Facebook next we have messages these are just private direct messages they’vereceived from peopleI for up to clear this one apparently it’s someone who’s asked me about I O Seightit would slow down his phone I said nope shouldn’t slow down police didn’t for meso that’s read ok for your private messages our recentlythey also introduced now you can do group private messaging it’s a newfeature that just came out recentlyand then we have the discover button appear in this is kinda freaking go tofind out what’s trending find out who maybe you should followokay you find all those categories up here so I can go tofor example popular accounts at the show me people who are popular in musicyou know kind of all they’re regulating expect Katy Perry Lady Gaga Rihannaall those people their sports figures people who are big in photographyet cetera as a whole bunch a different categories as you can see right hereom finding friends this partI have to just be totally honest with you is really disappointing for methere is no way for those me who use Facebook there’s noway to simply import your friends from Facebook to Twitterthat is to say tell Twitter who is Mike who have my friends were already onFacebook are also on Twitterother services do that they don’t onthe way that you can get around it I is by using either Gmail or Yahooboth of those services have a method so that you can importinto them your contacts from Facebookand then once you’ve done that you can import your Yahoo contactsto Twitter it’s really roundabout itsit’s not fun by any means who knows maybe we’ll do a class II justI its anything but intuitive who to followokay just kinda looks at who you are already following I’llimages kinda make suggestions for who you might want to followby cassette & follow comedians entrepreneursleaders people in technology that kinda thing that’s why it’sthrowing out the suggestions right there and also you have access to activitiesso this is for examplepeople who I follow you know what they’re doingyou know so where to mention Chris harbour Cay favorited someone else’stweetokay whatever that may be I nextI want to go over sum up the Settings these are really important I’m have toblur apart the screen I apologizesmile on privacy reasons but if you go here to the very topright corner Twitter you click on your profile photoyou go here into settings okay now the main thing I want to talk about righthereis security and privacy and againsorry I to blow up are the screen I don’t want all the information out thereso here are the different things like kinda recommend to peoplefirst one under privacy okay this bottom section herephoto tagging this can help prevent a PR nightmaremy recommendation is to do either the middle option and probably athe middle option only allow people that you followto tag you in photos okay you don’t want one of those celebritylook-see moments to happen to you Ialso if I scroll down here you’ll see a few others tweet locationthis is important for your own privacy reasons armmy recommendation is to unchecked this option by default thisis checked and what that means is that when you send out a tweetits gonna actually put your location where that’s important is if you’re notat homeif someone god forbid was going to burglarize youthey know you’re not home so my advice is toI’m check this option and also delete allprevious location information I want to give youanother reference here at this point go slightly off topic so be quickfor those of you who have concerns about your privacyI have a blog post I put together recently all about privacy and whattoolsI recommend for the average person it’s pretty easy to followthere will be a link in the description in the video I hope you’ll check it outnext here if you go down to personalisationthis option by default is checked my advice is touncheck it same goes for promoted content okay just means that basicallywhen yousee ads I don’t want them to be tracking what web sitesI go to to form to tailor whatads I Cokay and then die that’s about it what I would like to do at this point folks asI would like to go through just a bunchalittle tips and tricks I want to try to keep this video as compact as possibleso here in no particular order are just a bunch of tips and tricksfirst thing I would like to mention is the general compositionI’ll a tweet on specifically one thing to probably steer away fromyou wanted basically when you’re creating a tweet you want to start withcontentso putting whatever word you want at the beginning at that point in putting thehash tag here and theremay be put in a hyperlink put in an afterthoughtand at the and at the tweet if you’re going to taganyone tag them at the end here’s the reason whyto do that armed so if I start with co-starare tweeting about an ap that we reserve you’d are called nextglass okay if I put theirname very very beginning the only peoplecool end up seeing this Tweet are myself themand people who follow both the bus that’s the reason whyyou typically never start a tweet withsomeone’s profile name stairway from that the next trick I would like to giveyou is for when you want to sharehyperlinked after all when you go to a lot of different products your YouTubevideothe link is pretty long you need to shorten there’s a certain times havedifferent servicesout there here’s just simply who I use I found them to be very friendlyvery easy to use in free so I use a service calledbitly you can create an account if you want or not omand the way it works is when you have a link you want toshorten you just copy and paste it right here and they will give youa much shortened hyperlinked that you can then copyand paste back into Twitter so there’s one that icreated just a moment ago so they click that little Lincoln echoes to a muchlongerwebsite URL if you do decide to createa account with deadly want the other nations you gainaccess to is analytic see concede exactly how many peopleengaged with that link %uh many people click on it especially great forbusinesses of coursethe next record like to give you is its always a great idea tohad image to your tweets and there’s different ways you can do this of courseyou could have a phone oran iPad whatever may be in shooter photo yourself but sometimes you just need aquicklittle graphic now I am NOT a lawyer I’m not giving you legal advice todaybut one of the things that you can do for getting imagesis to go to simply images got Googledot com when you go to that you are searching googlejust for image is nothing more so if I need a quick image of a cupcakebomb I got Mike cupcake image but I can throw into my tweetbut those be out there who want to take this to be a little bit a furtherlevel are I would like to just give a shout out to an apthat I love I use it all the time for those be who are on Apple products thisis great piece of software calledPixelmator one Apple the year couple years backit’s pretty easy to use it’s very similar to Photoshop Elementsin my own opinion I just wanted to be slightly friendlier than PhotoshopElementswe have classes on it about links to the class and the product in the descriptionthe videothe next he’s a good guy so I’d like to give you you can actually see here thatI take to heart myselfwhen someone follows you it can be very tempting toshow your thanks by following them back a lot of people tend to regret doingthatif you look at mine here you see I only follow a little bit over a hundredpeopleif you start to follow back every single person who follows youI feel that you may discovered that that Twitter experienceis a little bit tarnished because now you’re not just seeing the people youcare aboutreally try to focus on that just follow the peoplewho you actually care what they have to say and that’s notby any means that is not me telling you to follow meI only want people to follow me who have an interest in what I’mtalking about so whatever your passion isyou should go after following people who share that passionthe next trick I would like to give you something I made reference to in thevery beginninghow to get mobile alerts for Twitter are the best example I can think upis if you are parent give a kid in school schools cancelled you want toknow about ithere’s how you do it first you have to do is you have to tweak your settings sogo back to settings by clicking on your little profile imagego into settings from here you can click onthe second I i’m sorry the mobile option which isabout midway down and we’re gonna scroll down just a little bit hereforgive me a minute to blur out part the screen here and you’ll see herethat the text notifications I recommend checkingthis option right here okay so you can gettext message alerts on your phone for really anything with Twitterthe problems you don’t get too many cuts obviously messaging rates applyand you don’t want to be spam to death either for those of you whoI do have you know you do have kids in school my recommendation istalk to the school and ask them if they have a dedicated Twitter account justfor school cancellations delays in major announcements like that once they dohave thatcheck this option so then when you give Twitter your phone numberthey will send you I’ve text message alert onlywhen this account tweets out 92 she has now set that upare so I don’t have kids sum to show youa different example here I may use these guys were here the awesomer for the citycore tech gadget freaksarm this this is one of the best blogs on the internetin my opinion you click on their profile so pops up like thissee that little gear icon one of the optionsis turned up on mobile notification so ifI were to do this anytime they tweet it goes right to my cell phoneI get that push message alert you may have also noticed them the previousscreen there’s also a way tomake the account silence itself if it’s between certain hoursobviously don’t get a text message if it’s three in the morning but you knowif it’s one in the afternoon they’re going to let out schoolearly you’re gonna wanna know about that for those before in business are ok togive you a couple quickpieces advice are first is that you can track your analytics on Twitter bysimplygoing to the website analytics dot Twitter dot comand this want to show you basically how you dead how many impressions did youmakehow many engagements did you make enduring gauge min rate as
