Netiquette IQ Blog Of 7/17/15 - President Obama: “The Internet Is Not A Luxury, It Is A Necessity”

======================================================
President Obama: “The Internet Is Not A Luxury, It Is A Necessity”
Techcrunch.com by Drew Olanoff (@drew)

A lot of people are aware that third-world countries still need Internet access. That’s why there’s Facebook’s sometimes controversial Internet.org. What not a lot of people are aware of is that one out of every four people living in the U.S. don’t have Internet at home.
One in four.
When I heard that census data, I was floored. I had first heard this thrown out as an anecdote when I visited Kansas City a few years ago, but it’s true. The White House wants to change this through its new ConnectHome initiative.
Its mission:
Every child should be given the same opportunity to build a brighter future and to achieve their dreams.
Internet in the home can help build that brighter future by connecting families with information they need to get ahead in school and career life.
There are quite a few reasons why not everyone in the United States has Internet access at home (mind you, 98 percent of Americans have access to Internet of some sort), but a lot of it has to do with where you live and how affluent a neighborhood you live in. Some of it has to do with race:
Google has gotten involved in the ConnectHome project by offering $0 monthly home Internet service to residents in select public housing authority properties through its Google Fiber project.
Here are a few more initiatives that are now in motion:
– In select communities of Choctaw Tribal Nation, Cherokee Communications, Pine Telephone, Suddenlink Communications, and Vyve Broadband will work together to ensure that over 425 of Choctaw’s public housing residents have access to low-cost, high-speed internet.
– In Seattle, and across its coverage footprint, CenturyLink will make broadband service available to HUD households, via its Internet Basics program, for $9.95 per month for the first year and $14.95 per month for the next four years.
– In Macon, Meriden, Baton Rouge, and New Orleans, Cox Communications will offer home Internet service for $9.95 per month to eligible K-12 families residing in public housing authorities.
– As part of its existing ConnectED commitment, Sprint will work with HUD and the ConnectHome program to make its free wireless broadband Internet access service program available to eligible K-12 students living in public housing. This builds upon the free mobile broadband service previously committed to low-income students by AT&T and Verizon, for ConnectED.
Obviously it will take many initiatives in many locations over a good chunk of time to make a dent in the Internet-at-home problem, but if these companies who are committed today stay committed tomorrow, we have a shot.
“The Internet is not a luxury, it is a necessity,” Obama said today during his ConnectHome announcement today in Oklahoma.
“People aren’t born coders,” he went on to say. “They learn.”

Netiquette IQ Blog Of 7/15/15 - Is Your Email Stalking You?


 =======================================================
It should be of no surprise to any netizen that it is possible that your email is tracking or spying on you. This can be due to simply a marketing tool or, more extremely, a situation of malicious intent. We should all be aware of these situations and to take the responsibility for protecting ourselves!
=======================================================


Ehi Kioya on August 14, 2014  

Is That Email Tracking Or Stalking You?
What if each time you open an email, the sender can see where you are? What if they know when exactly you open your email? While email tracking has been around forever, a new Gmail extension actually makes the technology very easy for anyone to use. Here’s what you can do to stay safe.
 
Email tracking / stalking
For every email you get, the sender could track when and where you read it. A new third-party extension for Gmail called Streak makes such tracking easily available to anyone. Streak is available on the Google Chrome Store here. While it’s primarily intended for email marketers who need to know if the recipients of their marketing emails actually open them, it can be used by anyone. Even more importantly, Streak is able to record the location of the recipient for the sender.
 
Email tracking is hardly new
Email tracking has actually been around for more than a decade. It has been particularly popular with spammers, who use it to find out if an email address is alive and if their emails have managed to get past various spam filters. Streak, then, isn’t the game changer that many news reports have been calling it. What it does, though, is to make this technology accessible to everyone. In that way, it does make a difference.
 
What do you do if you don’t want to be tracked?
Like other email trackers, Streak works by default. If the sender of an email has Streak, your email account won’t ask you for permission before phoning home. Information about whether you’ve read your email is automatically passed to the sender without your participation. Luckily, though, you have the power to make a few simple changes and opt out.

Email tracking uses simple technology

Emails aren’t able to actually run executable code. Whatever technique a particular email tracking method needs to use, it has to be simple and passive. This makes tracking relatively easy to disrupt. If you shut down your email account’s ability to answer tracking requests, no one can track it.
When a sender wants to track you, they have two choices — they can either include a read receipt with the email or place an embedded beacon in it in the form of an image. Read receipts are placed in email headers. When your email account sees this header, it recognizes it as a request for tracking information and asks you for permission to send such information to the sender. Since most people wouldn’t ever give permission, this technique isn’t much of a threat.
An embedded beacon image is slightly more serious. Embedded images aren’t attachments — rather, they are links for images placed in the body of emails. These links could be for images of the sender’s trademark at the top of the message or an icon. When you open an email with such a link, your email account needs to go where the link leads to get the image. Like any visit to a link, the server supplying the data is able to determine the location in the world that the request comes from and record the time that it is made. This is all the information the sender needs — whether you have read your email, and if you have, what time you did so and where.
 

The embedded image method is surprisingly simple to disable

All email services come with the ability to disable automatic image loading. It is usually turned off by default for messages in the spam folder. You can turn it off for your inbox too. Once you do it, those embedded images don’t load and the server doesn’t know when you open your email. How exactly to turn it off depends on what email service you use.
On Gmail, for instance, you go to Settings, the General tab and then the Images category before you select the Ask before displaying external images choice. Whatever email client you use, you need to look up its help document for the procedure to follow.

You can rat yourself out, too

When you use an email client like Microsoft Outlook rather than webmail, all emails that you send out carry your IP address — it’s one great way to let the receiver know where you are. On most webmail (barring Yahoo Mail), though, your IP address isn’t shared. You’re safer.

A unified computing system (UCS) is a data center architecture that integrates computing, networking and storage resources and is managed through a single software application.
A Unified Computing System (UCS) is is a converged data center architecture that integrates computing, networking and storage resources to  increase efficiency and enable centralized management.
Bottom of Form
UCS products are designed and configured to work together effectively.The goal of a UCS product line is to simplify the number of devices that need to be connected, configured, cooled and secured and provide administrators with the ability to manage everything through a single graphical interface.
The term unified computing system is often associated with Cisco. Cisco UCS products have the ability to support traditional operating sytem (OS) and application stacks in physical environments, but are optimized for virtualized environments. Everything is managed through Cisco UCS Manager, a software application that allows administrators to provision the server, storage and network resources all at once from a single pane of glass. Similar offerings to Cisco UCS include HP BladeSystem Matrix, Liquid Computing's LiquidIQ, Sun Modular Datacenter and InteliCloud 360.
