Today I was just about to get into the shower when I heard a once familiar call and the clip clop of a horse. I couldn't believe what I heard and had to look out of the window to check that I was hearing right. I saw a sight which I haven't seen for many years - a scruffy man with horse and cart collecting other peoples junk from which he was planning to make money - a rag and bone man.

It reminded me of Steptoe and Son (Sanford and Son in the US) the popular sit com from the sixties and seventies, the rag and bone man even looked like Harold Steptoe from a distance. Harold and his father Albert ran a scrap yard and the rag and bone men went out on their rounds daily collecting junk, some free some paid for, the junk was recycled for profit proving the saying that one mans rubbish is another mans treasure.

I used to love watching Steptoe and Son and I'll never forget the phrase "You dirty old man" said by Harold to his father in such a despising way. The humor probably wasn't politically correct, but sometimes I think that PC has gone too far anyway.

Seeing the rag and bone man made me think about entrepreneurship and Internet marketing in a roundabout way. It made me realise that just as he collects free products for resale you can use free products and free tools and resources to build your Internet business and there is no better time to start than now.

We keep hearing about the credit crunch and how it is affecting the lives of millions. When recessions hit many people lose their jobs and struggle to find other employment, but it is also a time when entrepreneurs rise from the ashes of high unemployment. Some create empires from real world businesses like my rag and bone man. Others get involved with business opportunities on and offline. Many don't succeed but some do and it is because of those success stories that so many try.

New businesses need different levels of start up capital depending upon the type of business that is being launched. Real world businesses generally need more start up capital. For instance the rag and bone man would need a horse and cart and somewhere to store his 'stock'. He would also need the know how to renovate or recycle his 'stock' and where to sell his goods.

An Internet business can be started with nothing except a computer, an ability to search and learn, a commitment to hard work and patience. There is no need to throw your life savings into Internet marketing because there are an awful lot of free products and free tools and resources waiting out there for you to make money with providing that you realise that it takes time and that you have a lot of patience.

Following you will find a list of the types of low cost or free tools of resources available on the internet to help you to build your internet business:

  • Webspace (hosting, blogs, Squidoo, Hubpages)
    • Website and Blog Templates
    • Products (ebooks, software, templates, graphics and scripts)
    • Product & Service Affiliation
    • Free Advertising
    • Search Engine Submission (limited)
    • Article Directories (mostly free to submit articles)
    • Auction Sites (small fees
    • Forums (For knowledge & marketing)
    • Marketplace (Payloadz & Tradebit - small fee)
    • Free Informative Courses
    • Link directories
    • Email Marketing
    • Autoresponders
    • Google Publisher Tools
    Just do a search for any of those and you will find that there is a massive amount of free tools and resources for Internet marketers out there, plus more than I have listed.

Internet Security

Posted by Mike Tyson 0 comments

There are several main types of Internet security software, the most familiar being anti-virus software. This is a program or system of programs that is capable of scanning a computer’s files and finding viruses and other malicious downloads. Once found, the virus can be either quarantined or destroyed. Any computer that is connected to the Internet should be equipped with an anti-virus software. Many anti-virus programs come in a package that also contain software such as firewalls and parental controls. A firewall is a program that helps to block viruses and unwanted files from entering a computer’s system and is the first line of defense for protection against viruses. These programs work together with anti-virus programs to keep most home computers virus free. Parental controls and other features may not be needed by everyone, but families with children may benefit from such programs.

The main differences between security programs are the level of protection and the price. In general, the higher the price, the higher the level of protection. However, there is no one size fits all solution to choosing the best Internet security software. High-end programs may help offer the maximum in protection, but they are generally intended for large networks that could potentially be attacked from multiple locations or from within the network. If you have a simple home computer setup, this level of protection is not usually needed.

To choose the best Internet security software for your individual needs, you should make out a budget and shop around. Look for programs that are designed your specific purpose, meaning home or business use, and decide on the level of protection you need. You should also find software that can be upgraded later if you find yourself with additional needs. Start with the least amount of protection needed and work your way up from there.

Internet Browsers

Posted by Mike Tyson Monday, April 12, 2010 0 comments

Chrome, Firefox Or Internet Explorer
It all started with Nexus in 1991, the first worldwide web interface. That year marked the beginning of the browser war. Just type in 'list of browsers' in Google and you can find at least 50 web browsers to choose from. This 'storm' of applications just to access the 'cloud' is mind boggling but one doesn't have to find out which three browsers fight for the throne every month or so with there newer versions, add-ons, better UIs and what not. You can just keep switching from one to the other every week just for the fun of it.

Google's Chrome has finally beaten Apple's hyped up Safari which was, honestly, good for nothing. It demanded more memory, wasn't much of a fast browser and the add-ons made the browser more difficult to handle instead of tweaking it up. There are 3 main aspects through which one can judge, which browser is the one for them; security, privacy and performance. The Big three, Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome will be discussed under these factors.

Security
It is a very basic but important issue. You wouldn't want be shopping online without proper security of course. There are two main kinds of threats that need to be attended to by any web browser; Phishing and Malware. Phishing refers to high - tech security threats referring to websites that trick the users into providing personal, financial and password information. Phishing sites cannot be easily detected as they look the same as the usually trusted websites like banks and mortgage companies.

Malware are a kind of virus that infiltrate computers without the user's consent and can retrieve vital information from it.

The Big 3 have latest security technology for tackling these issues. IE is equipped with 'Phishing Filter' and 'Malware Protection' and Firefox is equipped with their equivalents.

Saving the best for last, Chrome uses 'sandboxing' technology which actually is quite genius. The term 'sandbox' is used by developers which means running operations in isolation. Chrome uses this technique by limiting access of the browser operations within, meaning nothing can infiltrate the user's computer as the browser treats itself in a completely isolated environment.

Privacy
This one is a tie. 'InPrivate' for IE, 'Private' for Firefox and 'Incognito' for Chrome let you use the browser without saving anything on the hard drive let it be passwords, history, cookies or cache. The only difference here is the fancy names they use. These features can be activated quite easily and can be found often under the 'Tools' menu.

Performance
The humorous 'legendary' claims made by Microsoft in their infamous 'browser comparison chart' [can be found on their website] comparing the Big 3 are quite bogus but one has to admit what they said in the performance section, 'knowing the top speed of a car doesn't tell you how fast you can drive in rush hour', is sadly true. The Big 3 are almost the same in performance if u test them through YouTube and time them until they load a video.

Paper Based Information Moves by Digital Document Imaging Software
Digital certificate imaging activated science includes analysis and acceptance technology agenda imaging activated science is not aloof scanning and outputting a agenda image. Agenda certificate imaging, scant, and accidental processes agenda certificate imaging involves scanning cardboard abstracts and outputting a agenda angel in a accepted architecture such as jpeg. Agenda certificate imaging integrates cardboard abstracts into the cyberbanking workflow of organizations. Such admission is accessible from anywhere globally, provided the user has an internet connection, ascendancy and ascendancy to admission the information. Agenda certificate imaging can accomplish in a anesthetized about address with the cardboard advice captured at credibility of origin.

For example, barcode analysis and acceptance is an capital activity and activity in circuitous and assorted appellation and added scenarios. These quick and defended movements of paper-based advice to business workflows may abutment organizations accumulate their e-business processes. Text-based certificate images acquired in this address would catechumen into a machine-readable certificate appliance technologies such as OCR and ICR. Already the apparatus may apprehend the argument content, it is accessible to accomplish meta tags for anniversary certificate and basis them for consecutive querying and retrieval.

For example, a multifunction borderline (MFP) active a library of appliance connectors may browse abstracts anon into action agreeable administration strategies such as IBM's filenet and Microsoft sharepoint. It is at this date that the paper-based advice becomes allotment of the cyberbanking workflow, enabling bodies amid anywhere in the action to admission the advice and use it for decision-making. Before scanning may occur, users would accept to analyze themselves to the enactment and system. Advice in cardboard anatomy is beneath acceptable to be accessible as decision-support information. This information, already captured and confused to the agreeable repositories, becomes accessible to anybody in the action with permission to admission the content.

Digital certificate imaging and consecutive processing accomplish cardboard abstracts allotment of the action agreeable administration alignment and system. Abstracts categorized as accompaniment by accordant allocation practices and beatific to the accordant athenaeum may be bar-coded and accounting to documents. It analogously includes advance and development of added cultured, aesthetic and specialized analysis and acceptance technologies. It would again be accessible to automate quick appellation of cardboard abstracts or rapidly adapt bills at point-of-sale terminals.

Icons

Posted by Mike Tyson 0 comments

What are the Icons of Evolution? They are the most important charts, diagrams and illustrations that gave credibility to the theory of evolution. These icons included about a dozen of these illustrations. Jonathan Wells popularized the phrase with his book, Icons of Evolution. These icons were the main 'examples', or illustrations that 'put the theory of evolution on the map'. One of these icons was the Archaeopteryx, a 'reptile/bird' that had teeth. It also had claws on its wings. This was a very important icon, because there were no fossils that showed any evolution (one kind of creature changing into another kind).

This icon was later shown to be nothing more than an extinct bird. It was discovered in layers where birds already existed... so it could not have been anything that evolved into a bird. This was devastating to the theory because it was the only hope for there to be any fossil evidence that evolution took place. This removed the only 'transitional fossil" to support the theory (There should be millions of them by now if evolution were true).

The Archaeopteryx has still been left in textbooks and is still believed to be a valid example of evolution by teachers and professors throughout the nation. Another icon was Haeckel's Embryos. This chart showed stages of various vertebrates as they were developing before birth. This chart was made by Ernst Haeckel, an embryologist. He convincingly showed how the embryos went through the various stages of evolution while they developed. This included even the formation of gill slits in the verterbrates.

The chart was discovered to be a complete fraud. Haeckel had faked the drawings. This was pointed out over a century ago. The illustration is still found in countless textbooks and used by professors and teachers across the nation.

Games

Do not be fooled by sites that tell you they offer free full version game downloads. You may jump at this statement and tell me that you are already playing some games right now from one of these sites. Give me a few minutes and you will understand what I am talking about when I say free full version game downloads do not exist.

Chances are if you are downloading games at one of the totally free site, you are not doing so in a secured environment. You may be unwittingly downloading spyware and adware. In worse cases, you could be downloading viruses onto your PC. The first sign of a series of problems would be a slow PC speed. Run your computer and observe if your computer seems to have slowed down over time. There is a high possibility.

I am not trying to scare you but your computer could be damaged as some of these files are corrupted. You may lose more disk space which is minor but some of these harmful viruses could affect your PC registry and create larger problems. Some of these are irreversible. You end up having to replace your hard disk, lose your personal files or have to hire a computer technician to help you troubleshoot. So tell me, is it still free?

Instead of download games at these free sites, there is another alternative to get full version game downloads. No, it is not free but close enough. These sites operate on a pay-per-download or membership based service. Essentially, you pay for each game download which is a few dollars only or pay a flat membership fee for access to unlimited game downloads. Most of these game databases are gigantic with millions of PC games, movies and even music files. They are not pirated versions but full versions of games.

Firewall

Posted by Mike Tyson 0 comments

A firewall is a set of related programs, located at a network gateway server, that protects the resources of a private network from users from other networks. (The term also implies the security policy that is used with the programs.) An enterprise with an intranet that allows its workers access to the wider Internet installs a firewall to prevent outsiders from accessing its own private data resources and for controlling what outside resources its own users have access to.

Basically, a firewall, working closely with a router program, examines each network packet to determine whether to forward it toward its destination. A firewall also includes or works with a proxy server that makes network requests on behalf of workstation users. A firewall is often installed in a specially designated computer separate from the rest of the network so that no incoming request can get directly at private network resources.

There are a number of firewall screening methods. A simple one is to screen requests to make sure they come from acceptable (previously identified) domain name and Internet Protocol addresses. For mobile users, firewalls allow remote access in to the private network by the use of secure logon procedures and authentication certificates. A number of companies make firewall products. Features include logging and reporting, automatic alarms at given thresholds of attack, and a graphical user interface for controlling the firewall.

Computer security borrows this term from firefighting, where it originated. In firefighting, a firewall is a barrier established to prevent the spread of fire.

E-Books

An ebook reader review could be a big help in deciding which ebook device you want to buy. Ebooks are getting a lot more popular, and it's not really a surprise. After all, they're portable, convenient, and take up a whole lot less space than your average paperback. You can fit hundreds of books in a single reader not much bigger than a trade paperback book. But which reader is going to be the right one for your situation, budget, and needs? An ebook reader review could help you figure it out. One major factor for a lot of people is the file formats their ebook device supports. Let's take a look at some of the possibilities.

There are a few major formats that just about any ebook device is going to support. HTML, txt, jpg and pdf file formats are so common that it'd be silly for any ebook reader not to provide support for them. However, many of the manufacturers use their own proprietary formats when it comes to ebooks they sell. That means you have to own their specific brand of ebook reader.

Review all the different options before you make a choice, and be sure to think hard about where you're mostly going to buy your ebooks. After all, no one wants to be locked out of a big chunk of the books available just because they bought the wrong ebook reader.

Desktop Customize

The app comes preloaded with several starter themes. To enable one, simply choose a theme, click Apply My Changes, and voilĂ —you’ve themed your desktop. The preloaded default themes are fine, but they’re not mind-blowing. To find a better premade skin, check out deviantART’s extensive collection of WindowBlinds themes (http://tinyurl.com/48vj9z). Just find a theme you like, download it, and double-click the WBA file to install the theme alongside the defaults. Finally, if the artist in you is dying to express your vision to a T, WindowBlinds is packed with options, so you can customize each theme to your heart’s content.

The Windows taskbar is functional—but it’s not sexy. Mac users have boasted about the utility of the OS X Dock for years, but in the end, the joke’s on them: The free Windows application RocketDock brings the same functionality, and then some, to your Windows desktop. The app has a minimal footprint (around 12MB), is completely skinnable (from the icons to the dock itself), and offers a huge repository of free addons for customizing your dock to perfection. Customization aside, RocketDock, like the OS X Dock, let’s you minimize windows to and launch applications from the dock.

Want to streamline your desktop without the weight of extra applications? Try swapping out your default icons for more attractive alternatives—like any of the free icon sets from DryIcons (http://dryicons.com/free-icons). To replace a folder’s icon, for example, right-click the folder, choose Properties, and find the Customize tab. Then click the Change Icon button, which launches a simple dialog from where you can browse for the icon you want to swap in. Next, try auto-hiding your taskbar for a fuller screen experience by right-clicking any empty space on the taskbar, clicking Properties, and then ticking the Auto-hide taskbar checkbox. Last but not least, clear off considerable desktop clutter and better showcase your wallpaper by disabling desktop icons. In Vista, right-click the desktop, select View, and then untick Show Desktop Icons. XP users, right-click the desktop, select Arrange Icons By, and then uncheck the Show Desktop Icons entry.

Compression Tools

Posted by Mike Tyson 0 comments

These days, two things are fairly common for all of us. 1. We are running out of space, 2. We are going for shorter and smaller versions of anything. That is where file compression softwares come in to rescue us from both the plights. They squeeze our files to less space. It takes less space to keep them, lesser to upload and download. So on my quest to find out the best file compression software, I was thoroughly confused. Gone are the days when Winrar and Winzip used to monopolize. There are so many softwares now in the market, I was trying to figure out which one to choose which one to not. Again, another question that came to my mind is, what is the basis of determining better compression tool? So I zeroed on to some criteria and reviewed each software on the basis of those.

Lacking a stand-alone interface, FreeZip adds a collection of useful archive-management commands to Explorer's context menus. Right-clicking a file or archive then choosing one of the commands, such as Zip, UnZip here, ListZip, or TestZip, launches a command-line tool that does the specified action. It's not pretty, but effective, and of course, free, though occasionally we couldn't get the Zip command to appear for certain file types. Author Stanislawek offers optional encryption and stand-alone archive-creation features through patches available from the FreeZip Web site. Dial-up users rejoice: even with the patches, FreeZip is less than 500K.

Trojan Antivirus

Posted by Mike Tyson Monday, April 5, 2010 0 comments

Like other similar programs, the rogue is distributed through the use of trojans that hit on the computer from fake online malware scanners. These scanners will report that your computer is infected and offers to download a special program - antivirus to disinfect your computer. This "antivirus" is a trojan.


When the trojan is running, it performs the following:

- first, download and install CleanUp Antivirus on the infected computer

- second, creates an entry in the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE SOFTWARE Microsoft Windows CurrentVersion Run key of Windows registry, thus providing automatic start the fake antivirus application each time you turn the computer

- third, create a lot of fake "infected" files

After this, the trojan will run CleanUp Antivirus. Immediately, this fake antivirus starts to scan the computer and mark the files that were created by the trojan-installer as viruses, worms, trojans and other malicious programs. Of course, the scan and its results are a fraud. The rogue uses the false scan results as method to trick you into purchase the full version of this program.

In addition to the above-described, CleanUp Antivirus can block the Task Manager, and most antivirus and antispyware programs, as well as show a variety of false warnings and alerts. A few examples:

Warning
Warning! Virus detected

System alert!
Suspicious software which may be malicious has been
detected on your PC. Click here to remove this threat
immediately using CleanUp Antivirus.

As the scan results, all these messages - a fake, so you can safely ignore them.

How to remove CleanUp Antivirus

As stated above, this fake antivirus program gets on the computer with the help of trojan, which is difficult to remove. To manually disinfect your computer you need to be able to work with the Registry Editor, to know how to delete registry keys, as well as how to find and remove hidden files. This is a rather difficult task, so I suggest you use the CleanUp Antivirus removal instruction, where the step by step shows how to remove this malware using only free software.

1. Review of the Best Virus Removal Software That I Used
The protection software that I personally use is a popular piece software and is a very small application to install and run. It consumes very little system resources and does not slow down the other computer processes while it runs. After testing it on some older version of computers, I have found it to run very quickly as well on slower systems. On top of downloading software, a couple of Internet security solutions allow you to scan and fix directly from the web.

2. What Should a Piece of High Quality Anti Virus Protection Spyware Software Be Able to Do?

This type of software should be able to help you scan and monitor your computer system for any suspicious activity. It contains its own database of virus and malware file definitions. One of the ways they can also track the status of your system is to plant decoy files for monitoring to find out if they get infected by any viruses. Once they do, the software will then be able to find out the type of virus it is.

3. How Exactly Does an Anti Virus Software Work to Fix Your Computer?

The way these programs work is by scanning through the entire system to search for invalid and corrupted entries. These entries are then quarantined and further analyzed to find out whether they have been infected or are the viruses and malware themselves. Once that is done, a report will be generated, after which the owner can then choose to delete or repair the infected files.
