Almost everyone has heard of it, that one with a jailbreak all App Store apps can be downloaded free on the device. Illegally, of course. To install the most popular way, apps from pirate sites on their device, was the Installous Store. This and the small tweak AppSync which allows you to synchronize cracked apps to iTunes, was provided by the company Hackulous.

As the Company on its website announced that it must adapt their service now. This message is left to the users:

Hackulous Shuts Down: Piracy App Installous Is Gone

After many years, the activity of the community slowly come to a halt and the forums were a ghost town of the same. It was hard to keep the online forums and to moderate the posts, despite the efforts of its employees. It is hoped that, a new and larger community.

The reason for the departure is not, as one might suspect at first like. In conflict with the law, but in an inactive community Even if you are in the text contradicts by saying that there are no posts, but that would have been moderate at the same time too much, the reason seems to lie here. As it stands, Hackulous has earned his money on the forums, and caught the visitors through the popular programs Installous and AppSync.

The reasons could be due to the current security barrier in iOS 6th Currently let jailbreak only the oldest devices and thus quite simply stay out of the user. The causal chain can complete them easily. No user> No Community> No Money> Off.

Hackulous' Cydia source has shut down one and the apps Installous AppSync and you can no longer download it. At least initially. Since, as already mentioned, are numerous people who have used the installous and installed on your device, there will be somewhere in the world a developer to upload the app again in the Cydia Store. Since Installous only necessary to install pirate apps was and the true sources of apps still exist, it should not need much company that cares about the program. As long as there is someone who cares about the compatibility with new software, and the service can still be used.

Cloud Computing Is More Than Technology

Cloud computing is more than a platform and it is more than just an application hosted as a service. It's a combination of all the above plus provides immense data storage on the Internet. In today's competitive economic environment, as businesses are trying their best balance and optimize their information technology or budgets, cloud computing can be an effective strategy to reduce the information technology operations and management costs and free up vital critical resources and budget for discretionary innovative projects. Typically a business organization has a eighty by twenty split between regular ongoing information technology or the cost of the operation, which includes equipment, the cost of software licensing, development, data center maintenance, etc. versus new investment for solving needs which are critical for a business to survive in these difficult times. 

Cloud computing can have a significant impact on this by reducing the footprint of information technology operations by taking out the initial capital requirements for hardware and software. This enables a new model viz. - Use what you need and pay for what is used model. This entails businesses to invest on innovative solutions that will help them to key customer challenges instead of worrying about cumbersome operational details. Cloud computing - a paradigm that is composed of several layers of services. These include services such as infrastructure as a service (IaaS), as a service for storing, platform as a service and software as a service (SaaS). Various providers of cloud computing services developed various access models to these services. Access to these services is based on standard Internet protocols such as Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP), a simple Object Access Protocol (SOAP), Representational State Transfer (REST), Extensible Markup Language (XML), and the infrastructure is based on widely used technologies, including virtualization. 

Cloud computing is the maturation and combine several prior computing concepts like Grid-computing, application service provider (ASP), server hosting, utility computing and virtualization. Cloud computing provides many benefits cloud computing offers many advantages. -The following are some of the main advantages of reliability and scalability you get extremely high uptime, that is, to almost 100%. You are free to scale up or down resources. Rolling backup service provider cloud computing uses rolling backup for data backup. safety and support Cost saving end users save a lot of money on information technology or operations. Any application everywhere and at any time cloud hosting service provider allows end users to access cloud hosted software from anywhere they are located. Multiple end users can instantly share same data file at the same time. 

How to choose a video card?

How to choose a video card?

Video card is a very important component of your computer . After all, without it would have been impossible images, videos, documents, and in general to connect the monitor to the computer.

In recent years, many manufacturers have started to introduce a motherboard graphics chips, resulting in no longer need to purchase an external video card .

But with the release of more and more computer games, the system requirements are very high, this need again revived. After all, as a rule in the integrated video memory cards (built into the motherboard) at 256 Mb, while the amount of memory in the external graphics card is up to 2 Gb.

Also, high-performance graphics cards are needed and web designers, who work with graphics 3D - integrated graphics they hardly morning.

So, if you are a fan of computer games, like to watch movies on your computer in HD quality, working with 3D applications - then the choice to stop at the external video card with video memory of 512 Mb .

If you use your computer for work with documents, standard software, you will be fully integrated triple option card , which will allow the money saved to buy, say, an extra hard drive, or add memory.

Because first of all you need to start with your goals for a computer - it will allow a more rational approach to the issue and save money.

How To Choose A Monitor For Your Computer

Tips for Choosing a monitor. Best monitor for your PC.

We think that once you have decided to buy a monitor, then you have an idea of why you need this device, and in what area you will use it. Play games or to design, build graphs or typing, to train or attend a different page on the Internet. Let us say at once - modern monitor, no matter what you choose, will do an excellent job with the tasks that you put in front of him. "What's the difference? - You ask - because on the counter a lot of models with different prices and features. " We will get back to you - the difference is still there.
  • First, the type of matrix - perhaps the most important feature! The type of matrix depends on many things: contrast, brightness, response, viewing angles.
  • Second, the diagonal and interfaces connected to a PC (DVI, VGA, HDMI).
  • Third, the design (do not laugh, it is often the design you overpay for a good part of the cost of the monitor).
  • And finally - the manufacturer. The more known the firm, the more expensive monitor.

I think that now the first thing you should pay your attention to when buying a monitor, it is the type of matrix. But this is where you will be and for a surprise! The market is mainly represented by only one type of «TN + film», and monitors other types of matrices are extremely rare and the price they are much higher than their «TN» fellows. Accordingly, the characteristics of monitors about the same. What do we have - the most important characteristic is known, and what monitor to choose - no. Our advice: Decide on design, price, firm, ask the dealer what manufacturer the best service in town, and then ask the monitor. If an image of them suits you, feel free to take - do not lose. And do not worry - despite all the shortcomings of the matrix "TN", it works fine for most jobs.

If, however, you decide to find out in more detail the types of matrices and choose the one that will best meet your needs, we give a brief overview of the main types:

1. TN + film (Twisted Nematic + film), part of the "+ film" means an additional layer of film that is used to increase the viewing angle, because now it is used in monitors everywhere, the name of the type of matrix is often shortened to just "TN".

This is the cheapest and most popular type of matrix. The relatively low response time and power consumption of the drawbacks of the most important are inaccurate color (due to the use of only 6 bits per color channel, and missing shades are obtained by mixing the different ways available), low contrast and relatively small viewing angles (especially vertical). Also, in case of failure or sabpikseley pixels on these matrices (so-called. "Broken" pixels) in most cases they remain constantly lit ("burning").

2. IPS (In-Plane Switching). All matrices with technology In-Plane Switching, originally characterized by the best of all types of matrices viewing angles and color reproduction. Contrast and response time are highly dependent on the specific implementation of this technology, it may be noted that the IPS matrix have an average response time of more than TN, and worse contrast than the best representatives * VA matrices. Defective pixel or sabpiksel on these matrices always remains in the extinguished state.

At present there are the following types of matrices that can be considered as derived from IPS: 
  • 1/2. S-IPS - proposed in the 1998 version of the IPS with a reduced response time. 
  • 2.2. AS-IPS - Technology Advanced Super IPS; was developed in 2002. In fact, is a S-IPS with improved (to the level of S-PVA) contrast. 
  • 2.3. A-TW-IPS - Advanced True White IPS. Is an S-IPS panel with a color filter True White («real white") to give the white colors more realistic and wide gamut. This type of matrix is used to create professional monitors for use in photo labs and / or publishers. 
  • 2.4. H-IPS - The latest version IPS, which appeared at the end of 2006, characterized by a greater contrast and more uniform visual surface of the screen. Largely devoid of stray light - for example, there is no "firm" purple hue when viewed on the screen with large angles, but it took a bit of sacrifice proper angles. 
  • Currently monitors of technology-based IPS monitors are the most popular on the matrices NEC LG, Philipps
  • 3. * VA (Vertical Alignment) The first matrix of this type, which is called "VA" was developed by Fujitsu. In the future, these matrices improved and made a number of companies. They are characterized as a compromise for most of the features (including the cost and power consumption) between TN and IPS, as well as the latter left the faulty pixel or sabpiksel in the extinguished state. Their main advantage is the high contrast, with good color reproduction (especially the latest version), but in contrast to the IPS has a negative feature, which is manifested in the failure of shadow detail at normal look and color balance of the dependence on the angle of view.
  • 3.1. MVA - Multi-domain Vertical Alignment. The first widely spread type of matrix of this family 
  • 3.2. PVA (Patterned Vertical Alignment) - * VA technology development, proposed by Samsung, is characterized primarily by increasing the contrast of the image. 
  • 3.3. S - PVA (Super-PVA) from Samsung, 
  • 3.4. S - MVA (Super MVA) from Chi Mei Optoelectronics, 
  • 03.05. P-MVA, A-MVA (Advanced MVA) from AU Optronics.

Advised to pay attention to the following points:
  1. Prices for monitors in September and October of each year are creeping up. This is explained by the fact that in this time of year pupils and students acquire massive computers. Therefore, if we decide to buy a monitor, it is better to do it in the spring and summer.
  2. Visitors to our site have the opportunity to buy the best monitor for your PC with a discount! Print discount card , present it to the seller - and save you money!

  3. And remember that the monitor can not "upgrade" as computer hardware, he bought more than a year, and at least three to five years.
