Technology advancements have made us forget about hardware external pointing devices called ‘mouse’ specially since the invasion of touch sensitive Smartphones, Tablet and laptop screens. From the old corded version to the Bluetooth enabled mouse this pointing device has accompanied and assisted man a long way. The latest way mouse has begun to assist man is by emerging into its brand new 3D form.
This onset of these scribbling marks the end of the live venture by Facebook in which the New news Feed by Facebook was just launched officially. The long wait is now over, FINALLY! Emphasizing upon visual interface and the importance and effectiveness of the same Facebook announced that its latest Facebook fee was built more upon visuals rather than textual updates.
Skype has for long been renowned as a VoIP software that enables an execution of conversations from one location to another which may be millions of miles away physically. Now officially a Microsoft subsidiary, Skype is proud to be associated not only with domestic and corporate customer but also with teachers and students in the learning environment.
7th March 2013 is the date when we would all get to see an all new news feed look by Facebook. It is rumored that the entirely new look would be based on a single columnar appearance. This has been learned from a trial version of the new news feed which was revealed in the New Zealand.
Managing a project is subject to the completion of a series of sub process. The timely, sequential, synchronized and accurate execution of each of the project management sub processes is essential in order to achieve a successful managed project.

In order to set up a computer network in the enclosed premises of Sally and John’s home-cum office it is suggested that the following hardware be purchased:
A Router can be either wired or wireless. Even though there is no current need for a wireless router in John’s small scale business but it is better to be prepared for the future. If, sometime later, they do plan to switch to a wireless local area network they would not have to buy another router. For the time being the wireless option of the router can be switched off.
A router is available in different speeds. Sally can choose from the 54Mbit router, 11 Mbit router or the other routers available. However it is recommended that the one with the highest speed should be bought which is the current state is 2.4 GHz router (the Wireless g-standard). The 2.4 GHz standard is preferred for its stability and also because of the wide area it covers. The 2.4 GHz router (Wireless b-standard) is not generally recommended.
The Ethernet cable having maximum number of connections for Ethernet cables should be opted for. Cross Cables should not be opted for since they do not go with the router setup. Please refer to Appendix for a comparison of routers available in the market. The table clearly narrates the capabilities and range of the routers as well.
The main features of high performance computing include direct control of complex systems connected in parallel manner. This control allows fine tuning of application software to an ultimate extent in order to achieve optimal results with the target hardware. Acquiring the cloud computing environment for HPC (High Performance Computing) is debatable. The main issue that is to be pondered upon is that whether it would be suitable to surrender almost full control of applications voluntarily before automated software managers and cloud owners (as it goes with the cloud computing environment)?
The open source regime is not new to the world. Generally, the term open source refers to non-proprietor based software that is available to all the programmers/coders of the world in terms of source code and for free. The notion of open source health informatics can ideally be considered as a fresh provision for the health sector to process health related data. Laboratory Information and Management Systems are a very good example of Open Source Health Information Systems.
It was only a few decades ago that the world was unaware of the terminology ‘Internet’. Today, there is virtually no literate human household that may be devoid of this facility. The internet has become such a norm that the mere existence of man at a certain place without having been connected to the internet is though impossible.
About (2011) defines the internet as:
“The term Internet today refers to the global network of public computers running Internet Protocol. The Internet supports the public WWW and many special-purpose client/server software systems. Internet technology also supports many private corporate intranets and private home LANs.” (about, 2011)
SaaS or Software as a Service
“is a way of delivering applications over the Internet—as a service. Instead of installing and maintaining software, you simply access it via the Internet, freeing yourself from complex software and hardware management.” (Salesforce, 2000)
Often termed as Web-Based software and even On-Demand software, Saas is particularly designed to work on the servers of the Provider. Following are the numerous benefits associated with it:
