On Saturday, I watched The Social Network for the third time as it was on TV and I had nothing better to do on Saturday night. From watching that movie, a few things caught my eye as to why Facebook was so successful:
- Exclusivity: You needed to be in colleague to access Facebook
- Personal: It was only about you, and your friends
- Advertisements: There were no banner ads
Have you heard of people say www.facebook.com, www.google.com, or even www.jackcola.org? These are all called domain names. Without going into too much details, every website as an IP address. IPv4 addresses are like in the format of xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx. For example: 188.8.131.52 will open up www.google.com. Therefore, instead of remembering a bunch of numbers, we use domain names to easily find our favourite websites.

I thought Windows8 would be an utter flop after trying out the BETA version through Virtual Box, and watching people try to use it. However, after trying out Windows8 on a Dell XPS 12 Ultrabook, I may have just have to take back my word.
Disclaimer: Dell provided me with a XPS 12 Ultrabook; too keep if I like it.
In the past 10 years, we’ve known computers as a laptop, then the term notebook, netbook, tablet became popular, as devices got smaller and more powerful. We are now adding Ultrabooks that are convertible to a tablet, that have touchscreen capabilities.
With 2012 coming to an end, it has once again been a massive year, full of events. So I decided to put together a compilation of the major things that happened in 2012.
This year we’ve faced natural disasters, man jumping from the edge of space, the London Olympic Games, the apparent "end of the world" apocalypse and so much more. Check 2012, a year in review.
With every new friend request you accept, do you talk to that person straight away? If not, then are you sure they are who they say they are? How do you know it’s not a fake account using a name of a friend you rarely speak to just to view your private information? Is this your ex, is this a stalker, or is this a criminal looking to steal your identity?
If you are a technology enthusiast and is sometimes bored (like me), creating an unsecure wireless network can be a little fun, especially if your neighbour has a tendency to steal your internet connection.
If you have heard of the term “Daily Deals” then you’ve probably heard of the most popular daily deal website, Groupon. These daily deal websites give customers of local businesses massive discounts for products and services. However, if you take a look behind the scenes, daily deals sites are not so attractive to both businesses and customers.
Businesses end up losing money, and there are a large number of complains by customers because businesses are not accepting their coupon they have purchased through daily deal websites.
