Non-profit Technology can help you do good

Due to time and budgetary constraints, many non-profit organisations tend to put technology way down on their priority lists. However, there is now a major case for why they should be bringing technology back up to the No. 1 position!

non-profit

In order to assist in allowing the adoption of the latest technology to become an easier, and more affordable, activity for non-profit organisations of all sizes, Microsoft recently launched a brand-new programme for these called Technology for Social Impact, or TSI. It allows for predictable pricing along with standardised discounts, and further makes several Cloud and Hardware offers available for non-profits to take their pick from.

Brave browser review: privacy focused with a crypto twist

brave-browser

Brave browser is a new-comer to the browser wars that hopes to disrupt the industry by blocking all ads & trackers by default and by focusing on user privacy. Brave intends to connect publishers, advertisers and consumers directly to one another by cutting out the middle-men in the advertising industry (Google, Facebook, etc) via the use of their BAT (Basic Attention Token) crypto.

Founded by Brandon Eich, the creator of JavaScript and founder of Mozilla/Firefox, Brave is an interesting new browser concept, worthy of consideration. Brave is built on top of Chromium (the open source browser that Google Chrome is also built on top of).

Brave Shields

Brave uses its “Shields” system to block ads/trackers, block 3rd party cookies, enforce HTTPS Everywhere, and block phishing/malware, all by default.

6 Tips for Choosing a Web Host

Having the right web host can make or break your business. But what if you don’t know what to look for in a hosting package? How can you be sure that you’re choosing the right provider for the right price? Here are just a few tips for finding a good web host.

1. Know Your Needs

A video-sharing website will require much more bandwidth than a text-based blog. A busy site should probably go on a private server rather than a shared one. Before you start registering domain names, make sure your chosen host has the capacity to support your needs.

2. Look Into Server Uptime

“Uptime” is the amount of time that a website is both functional and accessible. The opposite of this is called “downtime,” and even a small amount of it can result in lost profits or interrupted web traffic. You don’t want to play around when it comes to uptime; if the hosting service can’t guarantee at least 99 percent uptime, choose a host that can.

There’s a way of addressing the public that’s sweeping the nation in a vivid splash of color and eye-catching graphics. Although the technology isn’t new, the proliferation and advances in its capabilities have made digital signage a cost-effective and dynamic means of capturing the attention of employees and customers in settings that range from moving billboards that dominate the squares of major cities to table-top interactive displays in restaurants. Even the smallest mom-and-pop shop can afford to showcase their products or services using cutting-edge technology. Here are some unique ways you can use digital signs to increase your visibility and keep people informed.

1. Encourage socialization. There’s a saying in restaurants that you eat first with your eyes. Digital displays are a good way for restaurants to get in on the food selfie craze while getting a little free advertising. Use your in-house digital signage to encourage patrons to post their meals, desserts and drinks to their social media accounts, your account or both. They’ll love seeing their own pics live on your display, and it will also lend a little anticipation to customers who are waiting to order.
