    The storage capacity is relatively limited tablet often makes us have to be smart to choose which content you want to keep in it. Not realizing it, remove and insert the digital content such as music video and it turns out that quite a lot of time consuming.
    Well, one of the more clever solution is to use an external hard disk as Wi-Fi. Seagate Wireless Plus (SWP) is the replacement for the Seagate GoFlex Wireless (SGW) which appeared in 2011. There are some improvements that are owned SWP as larger capacity, longer battery life, as well as support for streaming 8 connections at once. The size is also smaller than SGW, and attractive, the price is not much different from SGW.
    To fill the data into SWP, you just connect it to a PC via a fast USB 3.0 connection. If desired, you can replace with Thunderbolt or Firewire connector (sold separately). SWP is very easy to operate. You simply press the on / off button is there, then set your device to connect via Wi-Fi access point to the SWP. While connected to the SWP, you can still connect to the Internet by connecting the device to a Wi-Fi hotspot through SeagateMedia application available free on Play Store and AppStore.

    Wireless Plus has been arranged with several standard folders such as Videos, Music, Photos, and Documents. But you can create your own folders if desired. SeagateMedia application quite well, but does not support all video formats. To music, more fully supported formats. As for the documents, Seagate will ask what application you want to use to open the document. I tried it on the Galaxy Note 10.1 and the Apple iPad 3. The results are quite varied and SWP proved more smoothly used in the Android platform, especially for video playback.

    Full HD video in a streaming format. MP4 can be done smoothly, while for the format. Above 1GB MKV, a little choked up. This is not a problem in the SWP, but more to the software problem. Fortunately
    You can use other applications to play the video. SWP battery is claimed to last up to 10 hours. But if you continue to take streaming video, then the battery will be filled after 6-7 hours. If it varies, then the battery will be able to last up to 9-10 hours.
    Seagate Wireless Plus is an easy to use, very handy, and will remain relevant for longer than a new gadget you bought. The price is quite high, but the ability is quite worth it.

    Internet users in Indonesia continues to increase. As of the end of 2012, Indonesia, which has a population of 237.5 million people has 63 million Internet users.

    When compared to the condition two years ago, seen a significant surge in Internet traffic in IIX (Indonesia Internet eXchange). March 2013, the average traffic reached 10 Gigabit per second, or 4x the condition in 2010.

    “As a result, our routing infrastructure that already exists is approaching maximum capacity, while Internet traffic growth shows no signs of slowing down,” said Private Harijanto (Chairman IIX).

    “The main problem is about 60 percent of Indonesia’s population using mobile phones, but are accessing the Internet from the handset is still fairly small,” said Harijanto. “Obviously, this trend will change quickly. 3G infrastructure development nationwide 4G/LTE technology is almost completed and will be implemented next year. ”

    Anticipating the explosion of bandwidth requirements up to 10x in the next five years, the Association of Indonesian Internet Service Providers (APJII) is now using the series routers Brocade MLXe-16 is able to support 100 Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) as the main component IIX. IIX two main router was installed at different locations to ensure high availability. With the substantial spare capacity in the 16-slot chassis, APJII has ample scope to install modules with a capacity of four-port 40 GbE and two-port module with a capacity of 100 GbE in the future.

    APJII also plans to apply the technology Brocade Multi-Chassis Trunking (MCT). This technology will connect the two routers on top to create a single tool that is able to generalize the traffic load on network-network service provider that has a lot of connections to the center of the Indonesian Internet Exchange.

    APJII currently has 278 members, including telecommunications companies, Internet service providers and content providers. Some 161 of which have been connected to the IIX via IPv4, while 51 of them also use IPv6 connection.

  • Facebook offers the dummy’s guide to mobile advertising

    Comments Off on Facebook offers the dummy’s guide to mobile advertising

    Facebook Inc’s mobile advertising success offers a ray of hope for Internet companies trying to make money within the confines of the smartphone’s small screen.

    The social network’s 75 percent surge in mobile ad revenue in a span of just three months not only doused skepticism on Wall Street and Madison Avenue about Facebook’s business prospects, some say it could serve as a how-to guide for other Web companies navigating a world where the phone and tablet have fast become the screens of choice.

    Facebook’s “Newsfeed” ads, which inject marketing messages straight into a user’s content stream and are tailored for mobile devices, were the stars behind the social network’s stunning numbers on Wednesday.

    “You’re going to see a lot of companies transitioning and trying to emulate this model because it’s working so well. That’s why last night was a true watershed moment,” said Ben Schachter, an analyst at Macquarie Research.

    Internet company executives have long been concerned that mobile advertising is inherently less lucrative than traditional desktop PC advertising, due to the smartphone’s limited screen size and possible consumer resistance to a flood of ads on their devices.

    Companies from Google Inc and Yahoo Inc to upstarts such as Snapchat are searching for the right formula to monetize mobile services. While Google has developed a mobile ad business generating an estimated $10 billion a year in revenue, it remains much smaller and less lucrative than Google’s desktop search advertising. Analysts expect Google to generate $60 billion in annual revenue this year.

    That wholesale exploration of “native ads” – or marketing messages intended to blend with a users’ personal content, rather than stand out as an ad – has met with varying success.

    Twitter, which pioneered the concept of the in-stream ad even before Facebook, may also be well-positioned to benefit from mobile ads. “Sponsored” messages now pop up abruptly in the middle of streams of tweets, but analysts say the frequency is much lower on Facebook newsfeeds.

    More than half of the privately held company’s revenue will come from mobile ads this year, reckons Clark Fredricksen, at industry research firm eMarketer.

    Some are just getting into the game. This week, LinkedIn Corp, the network for business professionals, rolled out in-stream ads on mobile and PC versions of its service. Yahoo has experimented with similar types of ads, and acquired blogging hub Tumblr for $1.1 billion in May, in part to jumpstart efforts at developing new formats.

    But it’s Facebook, which a year ago had zero mobile revenue, that has most aggressively promoted its mobile advertising business to Madison Avenue – with seeming success.

    “Compared to other companies, nobody has come right out and said mobile is our sole focus now,” said Angela Steele, CEO of Ansible, part of advertising holding company IPG. “Facebook put all their eggs in one basket.”

    FOLLOWING SUIT

    One longstanding question has been how much tolerance consumers have for ads that disrupt their stream of content. Facebook said it has steadily increased the number of ads in the news stream without noticing a drop in user satisfaction.

    Facebook Chief Executive Mark Zuckerberg said on Wednesday that, on average, ads now account for 5 percent or one in 20 “stories” in the newsfeed. That ratio could now provide a baseline for calculating success, prompting other Web companies to raise the frequency of ads in their streams.

    “It wouldn’t surprise me if other companies would look at that and follow suit,” said Ansible’s Steele.

    Hussein Fazal, the CEO of AdParlor, which manages advertising campaigns on Facebook, guesses that the social network must have gradually opened the spigot, gauging user reaction and adjusting the stream all the while.

    They seemed to have hit on the right formula, but it’s one that differs across platforms, he said.

    “The reason Facebook can do it is, the rest of the content that’s there is so engaging that you don’t mind one out of every 20 ads,” he said. “If you have a newsfeed that’s not so engaging, and you keep seeing ads, then it doesn’t work.”

    Plus, the more ads in the stream, the less users will click on them, which can dampen ad prices, he added.

    Facebook’s seeming success on mobile devices contrasts with Google’s more gradual improvement in that area. The No. 1 Internet search engine has gradually managed to narrow declines in its overall ad rates from the mobile effect, but last quarter they reversed and went down again, disappointing investors.

    Google has avoided news stream ads entirely in its Google+ social network. Instead, its mix of mobile search ads, video ads and innovative formats such as “click-to-call” have delivered what RBC Capital Markets analyst Mark Mahaney estimates is a $10 billion annualized run rate for its mobile business, about four times as much as Facebook.

    But mobile has driven down the average cost of Google ads, and some industry watchers consider the transition a long-term threat to the search giant. But other analysts say recent changes to the way it sells ads to marketers, blurring the distinction between the mobile and PC, could help bolster rates.
