Computer Knights' Current Technology News You Can Use

Knights tech_news_300MADISONVILLE, KY (11/9/12) -

Good APPLE News for GOOGLE Fans

Hey, Siri, you better look behind you. Google, last Tuesday, upgraded its Google Search app for the iPhone and iPad, giving the feature a voice search functionality that poses a challenge to Apple's Siri. The app, which is available for free download, opens with a "Try our new voice search" message that sits next to an icon of a microphone. Click on the icon and speak your question into your device.

How much is your DATA worth to you?

I wanted to touch on something near and dear to your heart this week. First, for home users, how many people reading this article on SurfKY News right now have not backed up even their home pictures on their computers? If disaster struck or your hard drive went out on your computer today and you didn’t have a backup, is that data important to you? Most users have years of digital pictures on their computer only to find out when it’s too late they do not have a backup. There are online ways to back up your computer information easily and automatically online with low cost per year. Now, to all the business users out there, do you have an offsite plan for backup recovery that you can go back to if you need to? With the holidays coming and winter on its way, I would suggest that you get with your computer professional out there and get a plan going for your safety and peace of mind. Most computer professionals can even remote-in and you can do this from the comfort of your home or business.

Sandy forces MAJOR internet hubs to run on generator power

If you having problems getting on the internet at times or perhaps a webpage won’t load from time to time, it may not be your internet provider… Two monolithic buildings in Lower Manhattan that serve as major network hubs for the U.S. are operating on generator power, thanks to Hurricane Sandy. The buildings, known as carrier hotels, are a 2.9 million square foot structure at 111 8th Ave. and a 1.8 million square foot facility at 60 Hudson St. Telecom companies use carrier hotels to interconnect networks to allow data sharing and users of one network to connect with those of another. Thus, the two buildings are critical to the nation's infrastructure.

That’s today’s technology news you can use. I’m George Cummings from Computer Knights, and have a great day!
