Fight SPAM!!

Spam has taken over our lives to such an extent that users are now in a dilemma whether communication through email is at all a good idea. The first national standard set against bulk commercial email which was unsolicited was the 'Can Spam' bill signed by President Bush in December 2003. This bill stops senders of bulk commercial and unsolicited emails using misleading return addresses which adequate hide their identities and using dictionaries to produce such emails - incidentally this bill was voted by the Senate at 97 to 0. These emails must abide by rules like: carrying an opt out option and must not carry a confusing subject line. The law prohibits senders from accumulating addresses from sites and if he violates the law he may land up in jail for up to one year.

We ought to remember that large numbers of spam are now arriving from other countries. These emails which come from other countries are tougher to combat and control. The Internet is not bound by any country blockades so controlling this problem becomes more difficult thought the laws seem to be good. Is there any thing you could do for protection? Here are the top tried and tested rules for protection against spam:

Number 1: Avoid displaying your email address on the net at all cost. 'Spam spider' is a kind of product which looks for email addresses in the net and then gather them for sending subsequent emails. If you are interested, do a search on 'spam spider' and you will be amazed at what you get back. 'Spambots' and 'spam spiders' and similar rogues on the net is confronted ably by a site called which is an open source project which just goes on sending them rubbish web pages which carry nonsense email addresses.

Number 2: Any spam blocking software can be of great help to stop the spam flow. You may also buy a professional version but whatever you do, get the software because it will save you time. The software is not foolproof, but they really do help although you will usually have to carry out some manual set up to block certain types of email.

Number 3: Use the multiple email address approach. Getting a free and new email address should not be a problem and each one can be used for varying communication needs and keep the other ones as back ups. It is something like providing your personal cell number to only your friends but all others have to contact you through your business number.

Number 4: One of the biggest problems with spam is the attachment which is an usual feature and these attachments could carry the viruses. But personal email is free country for spammers. Usually vendors of Firewall can offer this type of service.

Number 5: Did you know that email service providers are now offering 'bulk mail' baskets? If you find that your current configuration does not allow this, change the service provider. When you receive any email from an unknown person, just pile them up in a bulk email heap and select to let them into your circle. Spam Blocking software has this concept as well, but having extra layers seems critical these days, so it is worth looking into.

Internet Banking

Perhaps you have decided to start internet banking. Though there are many ways to get started, a lot would depend on the internet company you decide to work with. It is a simple process if you register with your existing brick and mortars bank. All you need to do is to call the bank and ask them to register you for their online services.

The bank would then send you the necessary instruction via mail. Information like how to log on to their internet banking site and a typical username would be provided. They would also tell you about certain requirements, like having a 128-bit encryption on your computer. Such security measures are needed to avoid being tricked by fraudulent websites which are ready to steal your information.

The next intimation from the bank would carry your password and instructions on changing it, when needed. It will also inform you about the various security tokens you have to choose, such as images and captions, then it will tell you how to sign on to the bank's site and begin banking. The process differs when the bank is a virtual bank. You can start by choosing the virtual bank you will use for your personal or company's business.

Many of the systems are same as a brick and mortar bank. You want to make sure they are FDIC insured. Over above knowing their overdraft fees you must know more about the interest rates on savings account, loans and some checking accounts.

You will also be wise to read any information they have on their rules and procedures. You must agree to these. If you are contemplating opening an internet banking account with a virtual bank, a print out of this information might become handy.

There are some parameters within which you are allowed to choose your username and password, as allowed by the virtual bank. Internet banking is now a reality and you can start immediately. The information which the bank seeks from you to open an account, is the same as any other bank. Your contact number, name of your company, your name, address and social security number is all the information banks need. Make some kind of deposit with the bank, before you start operating the account. After all is done, you can carry on transactions with simply touching your mouse.

A history behind The Big G!

The search services of Google were a tremendous help to a frustrated law school student trying to come up with online sources for her thesis on money laundering. As a resource, this tool was very advantageous to the student during the writing of her paper. To her dismay, her method began to break down when she typed in key terms and they led her to an annoying website not pertinent to money laundering at all.

Though she originally believed it was a glitch in the internet search systems, the persistence of the annoyances led her to believe that she had been bugged. As far as irritations go, human beings that bug us are the most easy to fend off. Computer bugs such as adware and spyware, the problems faced by the law school student, are not as easily disposed of. The fact that the law student only uses her computer to write and research her papers is good proof that she is not well educated enough in technology to have ease in battling these computer bugs.

Though frustrating, the law school student can take comfort in the fact that she is not alone in her fight against spyware and adware, as many people are confronted with this technological menace. It was not until the year 2000 that many people began using the expression 'spyware' despite the fact that it had first been used in 1995. This term refers to computer software program or script that infiltrates a personal computer and accesses a user's personal information.

This can be done through studying keystrokes, logging web browsing activities, and perhaps most worrying of all, the contents stored on a user's hard drive. Though it sounds like something out of a James Bond movie, anyone can be a victim of spyware. Monitoring others' online use is an act that takes advantage of others and calling the people affected by this invasion of privacy victims is only logical. Technically, spyware can be used to track criminals, but what happens when the program is used for criminal activities like obtaining credit card information' There is simply no excuse these days for the lax use of an anti-spyware program.

Blocking spyware, adware and malware software programs are an essential line of protection while navigating the internet battleground. This should not be hard, as there are many online adware and spyware blocker programs. Despite the fact that they do not self replicate like a virus or worm, spyware, adware, and malware can cause frustration in daily computer usage. One such problem caused by these software programs is the fact that they cause the computer itself to slow down. Some spyware infections are able to evade detection, allowing the program to get away with the crime scott free. To prevent becoming a victim of these malicious programs, one should install a good blocker.

Technology behind HD Televisions

Most television viewers are realizing the inadequacies of cable service with bad picture quality as well as absence of scheduling options. Since the cable operating companies only have a few high definition scheduling to offer, viewers are turning to better options where they can get what they want. This is because cable providers generally do not have the engineering necessary to deliver the HD television (HDTV) scheduling in the higher quantities and variety that satellite tv providers are able to supply. A large range of high definition scheduling is available both from DirecTV and Dish Network, which provide greater amount of satisfaction to the tv viewers.
Being able to offer more than 30 channels of HD programming the Dish Network has become very popular with television viewers.

The DirecTV HD package offers a number of channels in HD; in fact, far more than any other supplier (including cable tv) can offer. A viewer can easily add further hd programming to what is supplied by the satellite supplier. This can fit the budget of any television viewer as he can add high definition programming to any standard package, which is supplied to him at a very reasonable price. Even the most standard packages supply a wide variety of viewing options as well as umteen music channel options.

Both satellite providers feature a high definition audio technology that is included with the HDTV programming. The digitalized surround sound is music to the ears since it uses the Dolby noise reduction facility and seems as if it is from a CD where every note is clear and sharp. Viewers therefore find the quality of sound coming from their high definition scheduling much better than the sound they are familiar with from their tv. To make the sound more realistic, may viewers connect their tv sets to stereophonic speakers.

In addition, viewers are able to take advantage of a picture quality that is far greatest as well when they sign up for a subscription satellite tv package from Dish Network or Direct TV HD. Though everyone talks about the superiority of HDTV, most viewers can not realize that the full benefits can only be appreciated with high definition scheduling. The unique technology of HDTV allows viewers to see a picture that is far more defined and precise with hd programming. Satellite TV is able to provide more channel options then cable since they have not even hit the capacity of their current hardware.

The fact that costs of HD televisions have been slashed down has made it possible for more customers to enjoy viewing high definition tv. Today customers are finding that you land up spending not very much more than a standard TV when you decide to buy a HDTV. As more and more programs are provided in high definition through satellite providers, it is expected that the number of consumers taking advantage of this superior scheduling will increase.
