A website is A and O for you as a small business, despite the fact that Facebook and other social media also is important.With your own website, you can brand yourself, showcase your portfolio, your opening hours or your products in a smart and easy way.But how do you go about if you want to get started with your own website?There are a plethora of companies out there that deals with domain registration – for example, Loopia, One.com and Beniro.What provider you choose is a matter of taste, and prices vary from company to company.– Many company can keep a site up, but when it is obstinate, it is the support that makes the difference, " says Jonas Brauer, which since 2007 has been in the industry in which he delivered the websites and bespoke web-based systems for, among other things, the online stores.

An international crew of six will enter a geodesic dome atop Hawaii s Mauna Loa on Thursday to begin an eight-month experiment on isolation and confinement.The Hawaii Space Exploration Analog and Simulation HI-SEAS Mission V is the fifth such NASA-funded research experiment.HI-SEAS is intended to help reveal the requirements for individuals and teams during long-term space exploration, such as missions to Mars.As such, crew members are expected to abandon many of their usual creature comforts.During the duration of the experiment they will breathe recycled air, eat space food, and — if they want to leave their 13,570-cubic-foot dome — they ll have to don a spacesuit.The eight-month mission will demand interpersonal problem solving and team building, as the crew will live in close quarters with limited privacy, conducting various research studies.

Startups often promise to change the way we drive, but building a car from scratch is more challenging than it seems.Elio Motors, the Arizona-based startup that promised to change the way Americans commute, is in dire financial straits.The company has delayed production of its three-wheeler several times, and is reportedly burning cash at an alarming rate.A United States Securities and Exchange Commission SEC filing reveals Elio Motors had just $101,317 in cash on September 30, 2016.Worse yet, the same document declares recurring net losses caused an accumulated deficit of over $123 million.If we are unable to continue to obtain financing to meet our working capital requirements, we may have to curtail our business sharply or cease operations altogether, wrote Elio Motors in the SEC filing.

För ungefär två år sedan blev begreppet digital ångest etablerat inom svenskt näringsliv, inte minst i ledningsgrupper då dessa plötsligt fick det främsta ansvaret för att ta vettiga it-beslut.Men även om betydligt fler nu inser vilken roll it och it-beslut har så verkar den digitala ångesten ännu inte ha släppt sitt grepp om de svenska storföretagen.Det visar en TNS Sifo-undersökning som gjorts på vårt uppdrag.Fler kan mer, helt enkelt.Men detta engagemang har också skapat högre krav på den interna kompetensen, vilket i sin tur lett till att förtroendet har minskat för den egna it-strategiska förmågan i organisationerna.Framförallt gäller detta beslutsfattare som är nära kund och affär, till exempel försäljnings- och marknadschefer.

Downloading a fake Instagram app could lead to handing over your login information and opening your account to hackers.It looks like there is another Android malware in the works.If you re in Instagram user, you may want to take heed, as Intel s Security researchers have discovered a number of apps dedicated to stealing Instagram passwords on the Google Play Store.The threat has been called Android/InstaZune and it basically disguises itself as an official Instagram app that leads unsuspecting users to a phishing website — after which it will ask you to enter your username and password.Unfortunately for the victims, that information is then sent directly to the hackers who built the app.It may not be a big deal if someone gains access to only your Instagram account, but a real problem can arise if you use the same login credentials for other websites — such as Facebook, Google, or even your online banking.

American presidents have a long history of using the technology of the day to get their messages out to the media, and the public.Theodore Roosevelt made no secret of his preferences to use particular reporters to spread his progressive message across the burgeoning wire services and newspapers in the early 20th century.Franklin Delano Roosevelt s embrace of radio for his fireside chats brought Americans together and let them know what was at stake with the Great Depression and World War II.John F. Kennedy was by many accounts the first TV president.And Ronald Reagan was called the Great Communicator because of how natural he was on radio and camera and his ability to make anyone feel like he was talking directly to them.And then there is Donald Trump and Twitter.The president-elect has made no secret of how much he loves to use Twitter to sing the praises of the things he loves, and to take aim at those he believes have done him wrong.There s no denying the fact that Trump doesn t shirk from using what might now be the most direct way to reach the biggest possible audience in the fastest way imaginable.And whether you or not you like what Trump has to say, you have to admit that he s not afraid to tell us all exactly what he thinks about something.Sometimes, Trump can be positive and affirming…And, sometimes, the President-elect sounds like a TV critic…And no matter what Trump is dealing within the Oval Office after he becomes president on Friday, he will continue to find time to tweet.Not just from the official White House Twitter account, but from his personal @realDonaldTrump Twitter handle.

As you ve probably already heard, Nintendo has finally announced its new Switch console in full, and there s a lot to be excited for, including all the interesting ways games can be played on the system, both at home and on the go, as well as the new game lineup, which includes a fantastic-looking new Zelda title.However, in the day that s passed since all the details were revealed, a few less than pleasing tidbits have also surfaced, mostly focused on the Switch s online service.For the Switch, Nintendo says it will be making the console s online service — which includes online multiplayer — paid subscription-based this time around, but not until sometime this fall.The fact that it will be paid isn t a big deal, as most gamers are used to that with Xbox Live and PlayStation Plus, but Nintendo hasn t said how much it will cost or exactly what the service will entail, leaving many wondering what the costs will be beyond the initial system purchase.Nintendo announced that subscribers will be able to download and play a classic NES or Super Nintendo game for free each month.The catch, however, is that players will only have access to that game for that one month, after which they ll need to buy it if they still want access.

A predatory hunter switch has been identified in mice after researchers implanted an optic fibre into their brains to beam lasers onto specific neurons.The technique, known as optogenetics, has been used over the years for various brain-prodding purposes, including manipulating sleep patterns in fruit flies and wiping and restoring memories in rats.It works by genetically modifying neurons so their ion channels become sensitive to light, then using lasers to stimulate those neurons to switch them on and off.Although the possibility of turning on a killer switch sounds like an intriguing precursor to an apocalyptic zombie army, Ivan de Araujo, associate professor of psychiatry at the Yale University School of Medicine who led the investigation, assured WIRED it is all in the name of evolutionary brain research.Understanding how the brain controls predatory hunting would provide us with a much better grasp on how the brain coherently links sensory perception with motor output; the so-called sensorimotor integration problem, he told WIRED.A previous study had suggested these neurons, located in the central nucleus of the amygdala, as being key to hunting, de Araujo told WIRED.

Poor as a VPN, and not even a good proxy, it's hard to see why anyone would spend money on DotVPN Premium.DotVPN is a Hong Kong-based brand which provides free and commercial proxy and VPN services.The website mentions a DotVPN Desktop which should be coming soon , although as it also says available in mid-2016 we wouldn't take that too literally.The website claims the service offers unlimited bandwidth, 700 servers, and integrated blocking of ads, trackers and analytics.DotVPN's Premium Plan $4.99/£4.10/AU$6.80 per month, $2.99/£2.50/AU$4.10 equivalent when paid annually removes the many restrictions of the free build to deliver what looks like a competitive product.DotVPN provides some basic privacy assurances on its Features page, including a strict no log policy and its own DNS servers to avoid DNS leaks, but as usual, there's much more to see in the small-print.
