Facebook Phone Could Be in Development

September 21st, 2010 | Comments Off | Posted in News

In news that has not been confirmed and is actually being highly contested by Facebook itself at the time of this article’s publication, it appears that Facebook may be developing a mobile phone. The rumor began some time ago and would typically be regarded as so much hearsay from Facebook employees were it not for the fact that the very press release Facebook put out combat the rumor appears by tech experts to be part of a savvy marketing strategy that presents the appearance of a denial while not outright asserting that the phone is not in development. Since the war between mobile devices has been so intense in recent years with PDAs and smart phones coming in to be followed by tablet PCs, it is said by analysts to make sense for Facebook to try a foray into hardware after finding such success with its software as a service social networking platform.

With social networking usage sky rocketing at the moment and Facebook having recently announced that its user base now exceeds over 500 million, it is fair to say that the company could be trying out devices that would cater to users of its Facebook App, the most popular app across all smart phones right now. Some say that if Facebook could put together a physical product that found success in the market, the company could definitely build out its ability to spread its brand, but others wonder if it might not be insider code for providing a service similar to or using the features of Google Voice to allow phone calls via the Facebook service to PC and Mac users.

Integrity of Digital Data Becoming Chief Private and Commercial Concern

September 8th, 2010 | No Comments | Posted in News

With digital vandalism on the rise in many parts of the world, consumers and businesses alike are looking to find ways to secure their digital information, products and media in an effort to shore up the wide vulnerability inherent in this form of data storage. It is becoming a crucial sector of the tech market where much more research is needed because the pace of those with the skills to deal severe amounts of damage to companies has proven far faster than the pace of those same companies to be able to set up the proper ways of protecting themselves not only from outside marauders, but from their own in house people who may use the deletion of important information as a way to cover their tracks in a criminal situation or to destroy a valuable asset of the company. By the same token, consumers are facing this dilemma and need a way to protect the things they buy in digital format in order to keep the value of the purchase of products that would otherwise need to be purchased multiple times due to device failure or software issues.

This has led to the formation of a new industry in the tech world, one that tech experts say is going to see serious growth in the coming decades. Today’s data recovery services are offering more than ever to get lost or seemingly destroyed data back into usable condition and these services have become totally crucial to the success of many in business today as they seek to be able to find a way to protect important parts of both private life and private business. With the hi tech solutions available today for both sides of the market, analysts say that a steadily rising percentage of people will be relying on the expertise of those who are able to bring back data in the form of media, records, applications and other software as well as data from digital trails that may be related to criminal situations. Solid development of new tools will help, but trained experts are making their market in this service because they are on the cutting edge of this field and able to work what many call real magic at recovering lost information.
