Internet giant Google announced last year that it was shutting down Postini, the email and web archiving and security facility it has owned since 2007, when it was bought for $625mn.

The internet giant says the process of moving away from Postini will take place throughout 2013, with customers receiving further information about the transition process with a minimum of 60 days’ notice ahead of their migration being scheduled to start.

The following article is brought to you by Jobsite -Ed.

Even with the IT job market positively flourishing in 2013, many people find the prospect of finding employment daunting.

Sometimes You Just Need To Print A Good Sign

The following article is sponsored by Signazon.

When it comes to printing stuff, most of us are happy enough to let ourselves be gouged by the desktop printer ink racket. These printers do a decent enough job most of the time, but they don’t cut the mustard if you need a professional looking sign. You then have a choice: go to the local print shop, or get online signs. Signazon is a company based in Dallas, TX and Boston, MA but who delivers nationwide. Unlike a lot of other similar outfits, they offer custom size signs, as opposed to letting you choose from a bunch of presets. That’s cool if you’re looking to accommodate a specific need, and can save you a lot of headaches down the line. They have a full interface online with which you can design your signs, and they specialize in 1440 DPI, full-color digital printing.

About NAS

The following article brought to you by Misco Computers. -Ed.

Back in the olden days if you wanted to share something with a friend you would have to actually speak to them or even physically deliver the item in question. Nowadays, of course, sharing funny pictures and hilarious videos is as easy as clicking a button on Facebook or sending an email.

When it comes to sharing larger files, however, things are a little more difficult, especially with the growth in popularity of netbooks that lack CD/DVD drives. While online filesharing is now growing more difficult there is a handy, legal option for sharing between those who live together.

Network attached storage, or NAS, allows all members of a house to connect to a single specialised device that stores files like music, movies, documents and more.Continue Reading

Brought to you by Virgin Media. -Ed.

Today’s technology is all about being small, discrete and compact. This allows for many practical devices, especially when you’re out.

Whilst many of these devices are great when you’re out and about in public, you also need to consider their uses when at home. After all, even the busiest of people spend a lot of time at home; it seems only right that your gadgets have an important role here.

Connectivity

First of all, let’s not forget that gadgets like the smart phone and tablet thrive on an internet connection. Even some of the most modern cameras are finding uses for an internet connection.

In short, you want a decent internet connection, making use of any broadband deals available. Additionally, a wireless router will allow all your devices to connect, ensuring you can use them efficiently wherever you are.

What are the best networks for a monthly mobile package?

With the recession, saving money and cutting costs has become a bigger incentive than ever for the average Briton. One area of our finances where we seem willing to spend large amounts is on our mobile phones and internet connection.

AOL Money revealed that millions of Britons overspend on their utilities and household bills, including gas, electricity, telephone and internet. With so many costs to balance, as well as the hard work and organisation which goes into changing habits to reduce the cost of our leisure and pleasure expenditure, finding the time and presence to focus on the most money-saving schemes for each utility in your life can prove overwhelming – are there enough hours in the day?!

Fall Is Here, Time To Take Some Pictures

This post is sponsored by eBay. From the new to the hard to find, when it’s on your mind, it’s on eBay.

The summer came and went in the blink of an eye, and now we’re all getting ready for the winter months ahead. But in the meantime, let’s not forget that autumn can bring with it some pretty spectacular photographic opportunities. With that in mind, you would do well to arm yourself with a few essentials before you head out into the the great outdoors. Let’s look at three.

The Nikon D800

Really, if you want to be taking professional looking photographs, dSLR cameras are probably the way to go. The D800 is not Nikon’s flagship camera, but has garnered a “better quality to price ratio than the D4″ from DxO labs, which is high praise. Its most notable feature is the megapixel count: 36 million. That’s three times the amount of the camera it replaces, the D700. It’s a full-frame camera, which means its sensor is the same size as a 35mm film frame.

The Sony NEX-5N

If you really want to avoid dSLR cameras altogether, there’s a new type on the market that might bridge the gap between boring point-and-shoots, and their bigger cousins. The Sony NEX-5N is a mirrorless device with interchangeable lenses, which gives it the best of both worlds. Much of the quality of dSLR pictures come from the top notch optics in the lenses, and this particular camera can be had with an adapter that opens the door to an entire world of lenses. Its sensor is of 14.1MP, which is plenty enough for most uses, especially in this price range.

The Think Tank Streetwalker

Once you start taking pictures, you realize that you need something to carry all this gear in. You buy one lens, an extra flash, and next thing you know, a dedicated solution is a must. As long as your collection is still relatively small, the Think Tank Streetwalker is perfect for you. It’s compartmentalized and can hold a couple of lenses aside from the main camera and related gear. There’s even a removable seam-sealed rain cover if your timing is off and get caught outdoors during a downpour.
