Forecast

Over the past months I have repeatedly written that the global economic crisis should accelerate "peretekanie 'advertising budgets to the Internet. And thanks largely to the process of Internet business could be affected by the crisis considerably less than other sectors of IT-industry.

In early February, were published the results of a study conducted in RuNet agency PR Technologies by order of IMHO VI. Results eloquent: more than half of Russia's largest advertisers are planning in 2009 to increase advertising budgets on Internet projects. At the same time, interestingly, online advertising attracts the advertisers is not the relatively low price, and especially the possibility of targeting and the availability of precisely targeted audience. Among other advantages are called transparent budgeting, as well as the opportunity for rapid assessment of the effectiveness of advertising campaigns on the Internet.

Figures

The study polled 70 respondents - they had become director of marketing and brand managers of companies included in the top TNS "top-100 advertisers on the number of outlets of advertising in the media" (2008), as well as companies that are, according to the "Video International, the largest advertisers in the automotive and financial industries, IT and telecom, as well as sector FMCG (goods of daily demand).

Specific figures are as follows: 93% of respondents stated that understand the benefits of the Internet as an advertising vehicle and going to use these advantages. 54% of respondents are planning this year to increase advertising budgets on Internet projects, and only 4% - on the contrary, reduced. But, fortunately, the four per cent in accuracy are offset by the other 4% - those who, in 2009 only to begin to work with online advertising. Most of those surveyed believes that the share of Internet advertising will grow in the future, although about one third of directors in 2009-meters will save the cost of online advertising the same. At the same time for 8% of those surveyed top managers of the establishment of a promo-site of their company is already a mandatory part of a marketing strategy.

Another important result of the study - a clear picture of what Runet attracts advertisers. According to respondents, the majority of companies are now more important than "long-" image advertising, but one that will contribute to the rapid sales. This implies a focus on advertising to clearly defined target audience. That is why the unique opportunities inherent in the Internet only target for the majority of advertisers are particularly important. There is a paradox: Advertisers in the Network has traditionally opposed such a combination of qualities, like getting into the exact target audience and mass.

Discussing the advantages of advertising campaigns on the Internet, the respondents remembered primarily for targeting and accessibility of the target audience (28%), the possibility of increasing the (low cost) in the number of special projects (15%), interactivity (13%). The relatively low cost of online advertising campaigns noted, only 2% of the respondents. But 6% of respondents consider the Internet as an alternative to television and outdoor advertising. As shown by other studies, the audience of several portals (eg search engines) is very broad and similar to the target audience of advertisers in the TV-advertising. However, approximately 36% of top managers still consider television the most effective media, especially for moving goods group FMCG.

An illustrative fact: growth or, conversely, a reduction in the budgets of the Internet is stronger depends on the industry in which the company operates. Here's an example: all banks and financial companies and 86% of manufacturers in 2009 would increase spending on Internet advertising. Companies that specialize in consumer goods (FCMG), behave more cautiously - the cost of Internet advertising will grow at only 56% of them. And the company's hi-tech and telecommunications sector is less than all the others are ready to increase their spending on the network. In 2 / 3 of cases, they simply leave the budgets at the same level. However, their level of advertising presence on the Internet is traditionally very high for many years.

Opinions

The company IMHO both commented on a study the agency PR Technologies: "The results generally confirmed the hypothesis of a redistribution of advertising media in 2009 compared to 2008-m. Qualitative analysis of preferences of various advertising media suggests that the main thrust of the reallocation of media mix s in the construction of advertising campaigns in 2009 will work with Internet sites. ... You can say that the appeal of online advertising - a result not only the reduction of marketing budgets, but rather a qualitative change in the Russian market of advertising. "

In turn Boris Ovchinnikov, director of the Research SUP Fabrik, said: "The economic crisis accelerates peretekaniya advertising budgets online. Advertiser of strategy of all, to maximize the coverage come to focus on efficiency and Measurability. For many, the crisis has been a good stimulus broken the old routine and conservative media planning. In crisis situations, everything is changing rapidly. ... In SUP Fabrik, we are also witnessing the emergence of online and new advertisers and increase the share of online advertising budgets of major advertisers".

And here are some comments from other market participants:
Alex Tretyakov, commercial director of "Yandex": "In our company, we expect that this year the share of Internet advertising will increase - both at the expense of increasing the share of the Internet in the budgets of advertisers, and by the arrival of the Internet for new clients. In particular, this concerns contextual advertising, which is in a crisis, more relevant than ever, because it directly increases sales".

Artamonova Anna, vice president Mail.Ru: "The fact that in crisis conditions, advertisers will begin to reallocate budgets to the Internet, we are talking long-standing and regular. The reason is that the Internet is by far the best advertising mediums on the ratio of costs/returns".

Tatiana Menkova, Analyst Investment Company "Finam": "Preconditions for the growth of advertising revenues Runet, really is. The crisis raises the requirements for effectiveness of advertising and the Internet offers the best opportunity to achieve a target audience at a cost of an adequate contact. In addition, despite the crisis , Internet penetration is growing, which also increases the appeal of advertising on various sites. ... In their own Internet projects "Finam" demand for advertising is more or less stable, given the fact that they have escaped correction in the IV quarter of last year. Probably this is due to the fact that this year's advertising budgets in most cases are situational in nature, they are taken for a period of not more than quarter, and sometimes even shorter. The decision on the advertising was adopted on the basis of the current challenges of companies and state economic conditions. As a result, there are plans to increase advertising on the Internet, but until they are transformed into concrete action".

Venues

A separate study has been to explore the ultimate advertising sites in RuNet. Analysts PR Technologies identified four most popular types of sites: thematic websites (28%, a clear focus on the attractive target audiences), media (24%, wide coverage), social networks (20%, also indicates a very high coverage, plus the possibility of a clear targeting of advertising messages), and search resources (20%, high coverage). Contrary to all predictions, the least popular advertising mediums on the Web have contextual advertising (6%) and the forums and blogs (8%). Also interested in a high interest to advertisers, social networks, even though studies show that they are very low advertising effectiveness.

... And something else

Still, the most surprising result of research - is that from the perspective of advertisers, low cost, quick launch campaigns, easy budgeting and even fashionable "viral effect" appeared in the list of advantages of internet advertising.

Another important observation: the Internet technologies are perceived brand managers and marketing professionals as attractive in terms of career. 61% of respondents gave a positive answer to the question of possible career success related to the implementation of innovative projects on the Internet.

And the last. Today, the Internet and television advertisers are seen as the most effective media channels. They believe their 26% and 36% of respondents respectively. But outdoor advertising has been on the list at the last place (14%), while last place was print media (4%).

IT-industry: betting on Obama

February 18 Barack ObamaFebruary 18, U.S. President Barack Obama, signed a plan to stimulate the U.S. economy of $ 787 billion before to put its signature to the document, the head of the White House noted that "today does not mean the end of the economic problems, but it will be the beginning of their end".

Of the money the U.S. economy has been waiting for, like manna from heaven. Undoubtedly, part of the allocated funds will be in the IT-industry: something directly, but something - through the corporate IT-budgets. Do not forget that the United States - the largest in the world computer market, and its rise necessarily trigger the growth of IT-companies in the world. But, as I once said, "post" IT-industry will be dramatically different from what we all saw back in mid-2008.

By the end of 2008, the U.S. economy has lost 2.6 million jobs. Obama hopes that his economic program will create up to 4 million new jobs. In addition, the White House plan assumes an increase in unemployment benefits, reconstruction of transport infrastructure, investment in new technologies, including alternative energy.

Manufacturers

Company Cisco Systems announced plans to issue bonds worth $ 4 billion, the proceeds of the sale is scheduled to spend the funds on a number of major acquisitions. However, it is not known for certain what the company and the price going to buy Cisco. Terry Albershtayn Cisco representative said that the $ 500 million of the proceeds will go to repay the amount of debt the company. The remainder of the funds will be used for "general corporate purposes, which may be attributed, and a deal to purchase new assets.

I recall that very recently during a quarterly conference the representative of Cisco CEO John Chambers also said that the producer will continue to aggressively invest in new markets. He also noted that the absorption of other companies remain part of the strategy for Cisco to enter into new segments. The most significant acquisitions in recent years have become Cisco acquisitions Scientific Atlanta for $ 6.9 billion (2005), Linksys, which was bought for $ 500 million in 2003-m, and WebEx - the year 2007, $ 3.2 billion

Now, as the most likely acquisition of the Western media company called EMC and VMware. The latest EMC owns a large stake, and Cisco - a minority. For now, however, EMC is the market capitalization of approximately $ 24 billion, and VMWare - about $ 10 billion, yet it is too expensive for Cisco. As other potential acquisitions are considered company NetApp, Sun Microsystems, Red Hat and BMC. Also not ruled out the possibility of acquiring Cisco service Skype company eBay.

Cisco now have about $ 30 billion of cash, but most of these funds is located in the foreign accounts of the company, and only $ 3.2 billion - in the United States. But, according to experts, even in times of global financial crisis and the crisis in the credit market from a company like Cisco, it is possible to obtain a loan on favorable terms.

Company Toshiba and Fujitsu came to an agreement, under which Toshiba will buy the business unprofitable HDD-Fujitsu. Transaction should be completed between April and June. Its first step is to bring together all HDD-Fujitsu units into one company, 80% of the shares to be acquired by Toshiba. The remaining 20% will remain with Fujitsu was not yet at a certain period, after which they will go again to Toshiba. According to its representatives, with the help of the transaction, the company plans to enter the markets hard disk drives for servers and systems for data storage, plus enhance its SSD-business.

In AMD prepared another surprise for Intel. The company intends to release a new processor, code-named Callisto. A surprise is that until this announcement in the official plans for anything like AMD does not appear.

The latter is a smart Deneb, but with three cores instead of four. 45-nanometer Callisto is also built on the basis of Deneb, has two core, 1 MB cache second level and third level of 6 MB. New product will be serious competition not only dual-core Pentium, but chipam family of Core 2 Duo. Exit Callisto is scheduled for II quarter 2009. Samsung Electronics intends to reduce its capital costs in 2009 to 35% - to $ 4.85 billion, however, Samsung officials refused to comment on these data. According to them, an investment plan for this year are not yet ready, but a strong reduction in costs is unavoidable. As the association of Korean manufacturers of Federation of Korean Industries, the largest 600 companies of the country will reduce its capital spending by an average of 2.5%. According to the federation, the last eight years, capital costs of Korean businesses only grew. Ben Vervayen, head of Alcatel-Lucent, the Franco-American giant market of telecommunications equipment, said that in the next two months, the company is unlikely to face a big negative surprises. Vervayen also reported: in spite of the fact that the company has written off the assets last month for $ 4.9 billion (and he could not promise that this will not happen again), however, "there is no reason to make this happen again. Our balance currently reflects the reality honestly and transparently. " Also, the head of the company informed that the leadership does not see any reason to continue a serious reduction in costs. Now, he said, the company has a good strategy, which should begin to act.

Manufacturer of memory modules Transcend Information may be made in February, a record supply of its products - more than 10 million units. But back in January, the company managed to ship 7.21 million units of its products, which was at 25.4% less than last month.

With regard to individual markets, the Transcrend note: emerging markets such as Russia, India and Eastern Europe could soon become the main base for further growth.

Russia's economic losses due to spam is $ 1,3-1,9 billion a year, according to the study of auditing and consulting company FBK. The experts draw attention to the FCO that the loss of the Russian economy against spam is significantly lower than, for example, in the United States - a loss for the year 2007, the assessment of American specialists were $ 71 billion According to the FCO, is due to several reasons: in Russia significantly lower cost labor force, number of employees using e-mail to Russia seven times less than in the United States, and in addition, as demonstrated by the study, users of e-mail in Russia in 2,5 times more quickly remove spam.

Software Business

Microsoft plans to open a retail chain in major cities around the world. Such a move analysts saw as an attempt to find additional markets, with a maximum saturation of the core market. Especially for that Microsoft has created riteylerovoe unit head appointed by the former corporate vice president of retail empire Wal-Mart Stores, David Porter. The new network will sell commercial PCs installed with Microsoft, as well as other products.

Analysts acknowledge that the current world situation, such diversification of business - one way out of the crisis. The meaning of the retail network would be to expand the product line: Microsoft already has a few lines of assembly of computers, and now the question is, will the company continue to build PCs under its own brand.

In addition, by opening its own stores, the company will get closer contact with end consumers. In the image the store should be presented not only drives with software, but also a visual device, on which the software works: personal computers, laptops, mobile phones, smart phones, browsers, games.

2012 It is the year 2009, and I had never traveled trough time before. No one had. The old fog watch I was holding could change the future for good, but could also destroy it. I had found the watch inside a secret compartment in the back of my old grandfather clock. The watch must have been centuries old, because the grandfather clock had been standing in one of the dustiest corridors in my mansion for decades. People told stories about this watch. By opening the watch, and concentrating on where and when you wanted to go, you could travel through time. This could be very dangerous, because if your thinking got off track, you could end up in the middle of an ocean with two heads and a tail. I had never really believed in the stories. No one did. I had known it was special ever since I had first laid eyes on it. It was almost like the watch was calling out to me. Circles and stars were carved into the cover to signify time and space. I had only told one other person about the watch-Chris Malloy. He had been my best friend since childhood, and I trusted him more than any other person. He had ice blue eyes, black hair, and pale skin. My name’s Karen Hatfield. I had long, wavy brown hair, and green eyes. Chris and I were borne two days apart from each other, and are both 14 years old, and lived in Swords, Ireland. “So where and when are we going? I have always wondered if the world would be taken over by aliens with two heads,” he suggested. “Me too,” I said. “Hey, I just read an article on the Mayans. They thought the world would come to an end on December 21st, in the year 2012. Want to check it out?” “Yeah, that sounds cool, but two-headed aliens sounds more exciting.” He said “Ok, December 2012 it is! I’m opening the watch on three. Ready? One, two, three!” The second I opened the watch, it felt like I was being pulled into vortex. With space and time swirling around me, closing my eyes, and covering my ears were the only things I would do to keep that one thought in my head: 2012. It felt like eternity, but suddenly, it was over. I stood up, and opened my eyes. I was surrounded by a burned field. I found the fog watch buried in the ash next to me, and quickly put it in my pocket. Then something occurred to me: where was Chris? “Chris!” I yelled. “I’m over here!” he said, popping out of the grass to my right. “I have a pounding head ache, but don’t worry about me. I’d be more worried about why the Earth has two suns.” Chris was right. Not one, but two suns were shinning in the sky. “That can’t be good,” I said. Chris and I cut across the field, and eventually reached a small town called Novato. We only knew that, because the “welcome to Novato” sigh was just about all that remained intact in the town. As we walked through the deserted town, I noticed that every store and house had been broken-into, burned down, or left in ruin. On one building, in red paint, were the words: THE MAYANS WERE RIGHT! RUN FOR YOUR LIFE! “Hay Karen, I think I see someone!” Chris said, pointing down an alley between a movie store and a restaurant. I looked down the alley, and saw a man lying on the ground, about twenty feet away. But as Chris and I ran up to him, I realized there was something terribly wrong. The man was lying on his stomach with a knife embedded in his back, with his shirt soaked in blood. Before I could completely comprehend what I was seeing, Chris took my had, and led me back into the street. It took me a minute to shake off what I just saw, but eventually Chris and I continued on our way, down the street. “Hey Chris, is it just me, or has the other sun gotten a bit bigger?” Chris said. “Wait, there’s a TV!” I exclaimed. In one store window, a small portable TV showed a reporter talking with absolute chaos in the background. We hurried through the broken window to hear what the reporter was saying. “I’m here in New York City, and as you can see, every man woman and child is taking what they can get, and running for cover.” The reporter said. “Remember: stay in your homes! The meteor is scheduled to collide with Earth at 1:15.” I checked my watch, and it was already one ten. “Remember there is a 36 percent chance that the meteor will, in fact, break up in the Earth’s atmosphere, and a 46 percent chance that it will wipe out everything on the face of the Earth,” continued the reporter. “Remember, this is only if the rocket misses the meteor, which we will be firing momentarily.” The next image was of a rocket blasting off towards a bright object in the sky. I watched in horror as the rocket missed the meteor, and continued on into space. Then the cameras switched back to the reporter, who was shown swearing, and running off screen.

What do you think of this short story? It will only take a minute to read...?

This could be very dangerous, because if your thinking got off track, you could end up in the middle of an ocean with two heads and a tail. I had never really believed in the stories. No one did. I had known it was special ever since I had first laid eyes on it. It was almost like the watch was calling out to me. Circles and stars were carved into the cover to signify time and space. I had only told one other person about the watch-Chris. He had been my best friend since childhood, and I trusted him more than any other person. He had ice blue eyes, black hair, and pale skin. “So where and when are we going? I have always wondered if the world would be taken over by aliens with two heads,” he suggested. “Me too,” I said. “Hey, I just read an article on the Mayans. They thought the world would come to an end on December 21st, in the year 2012. Want to check it out?” “Yeah, that sounds cool, but two-headed aliens sounds more exciting.” He said “Ok, December 2012 it is! I’m opening the watch on three. Ready? One, two, three!” The second I opened the watch, it felt like I was being pulled into vortex. With space and time swirling around me, closing my eyes, and covering my ears were the only things I would do to keep that one thought in my head: 2012. It felt like eternity, but suddenly, it was over. I stood up, and opened my eyes. I was in the middle of a field, surrounded by a burned field. I found the fog watch buried in the ash to me, and quickly put it in my pocket. Then something occurred to me: where was Chris? “Chris!” I yelled. “I’m over here!” he said, popping out of the grass to my right. “I have a pounding head ache, but don’t worry about me. I’d be more worried about why the Earth has two suns.” Chris was right. Not one, but two suns were shinning in the sky. “That can’t be good,” I said. Chris and I cut across the field, and eventually reached a small town called Novato. We only knew that, because the “welcome to Novato” sigh was just about all that remained intact in the town. As we walked through the deserted town, I noticed that every store and house had been broken-into, burned down, or left in ruin. On one building, in red paint, were the words: THE MAYANS WERE RIGHT! RUN FOR YOUR LIFE! “Hay Karen, I think I see someone!” Chris said, pointing down an alley between a movie store and a restaurant. I looked down the alley, and saw a man lying on the ground, about twenty feet away. But as Chris and I ran up to him, I realized there was something terribly wrong. The man was lying on his stomach with a knife embedded in his back, with his shirt soaked in blood. Before I could completely comprehend what I was seeing, Chris took my had, and led me back into the street. It took me a minute to shake off what I just saw, but eventually Chris and I continued on our way, down the street. “Hey Chris, is it just me, or has the other sun gotten a bit bigger?” Chris said. “Wait, there’s a TV!” I exclaimed. In one store window, a small black and white TV showed a reporter talking with absolute chaos in the background. We hurried through the broken window to hear what the reporter was saying. “I’m here in New Your City, and as you can see, every man woman and child is taking what they can get, and running for cover.” The reporter said. “Remember: stay in your homes! The meteor is scheduled to collide with Earth at 1:15.” I checked my watch, and it was already one ten. “Remember there is a 36 percent chance that the meteor will, in fact, break up in the Earth’s atmosphere, and a 46 percent chance that it will wipe out everything on the face of the Earth,” continued the reporter. “Remember, this is only if the rocket misses the meteor, which we will be firing momentarily.” The next image was of a rocket blasting off towards a bright object in the sky. I watched in horror as the rocket missed the meteor, and continued on into space. Then the cameras switched back to the reporter, who was shown swearing, and running off screen. Then the TV went blank for a second, and a clock flashed on screen, counting down from three minutes. “Ok Karen. I think it’s time to go,” said Chris I pulled out the fog watch. By this time,

Google Talk: the desire for simplicity and perfection

Image representing Google Talk as depicted in ...Image via CrunchBase

The war, which the company ICQ, in recent months against the alternative messengers (uses Oscar), has led to a result - the mass migration of users to the IM-clients with open protocols. This is Trillian, Miranda, Jabber and many others. But against the background of the leaders in the fast breaks brainchild of Google - Internet messenger Google Talk. Until now, "Computer newspaper not to publish a detailed review of the program. Well, try to correct this omission. Moreover, users of Google Talk in the CIS countries, as the statistics show, is growing literally day by day.

Indeed

Google Talk, appeared in 2005 - It's free and easy-to-use service that lets people make voice calls and send instant messages. This is a downloadable application for Windows allows you to simply and easily communicate in real time. Google Talk is an instant messaging service, which is based on XMPP - an open protocol, better known as Jabber. In Russia and CIS in IM-services has been widely distributed ICQ and other internet-based pagers protocol Oscar (QIP, Mail.ru Agent). But the number of Russian-speaking users of Jabber, too, is steadily growing, especially in recent times.

The main advantage of Google Talk - is that it is tightly integrated with popular email service GMail. They have a single account, that is for access to the messenger using the same username and password as the email service Google. In the main window has a link for quick access to your mailbox, GMail, and in the dialog - button to send a message, again via GMail. Finally, Google Talk periodically checks the mailbox and displays alerts about new messages in the lower right corner of the screen. If invited to Google Talk users who do not have a box in Gmail, it will extend an invitation to start using email service Google.
By installing Google Talk on your PC, the user can immediately start a program using the user name and password, Gmail. When you first start GMail contacts are automatically added to the list of familiar Google Talk. Google Talk has all the features that had previously been in the GMail notification, and displays a notification of new messages in the GMail account, as well as for incoming calls or chats. The exchange of text messages is available from the program Google Talk, and a built-in interface of GMail chat.

If the entry is made using the GMail account, new friends in Google Talk will also in GMail address book, or vice versa. Removing or blocking someone from your Google Talk Friends list does not affect the list of contacts GMail.

The entire history of correspondence is not stored on the user's PC and server. On the one hand it is convenient, on the other - not. Uncomfortable off-the inability to search for messages. Convenient that it was not depending on the IM-client or location - on the same account, you can communicate at work and at home, without a single story in the email.

The initial status of the user - two: Access and busy, but you can add new statuses almost indefinitely. The only drawback - the lack of treatment invisibility.

Dialog window does not contain any unnecessary elements. Dialogues you can minimize, expand by clicking on the title. Window to enter, under the common dialog box, you feel small, but is beginning to grow in the course of writing the text. When both conducted several dialogues, their windows are grouped like a conversation in GMail. At first, looks somewhat unusual, but in practice - quite convenient.

For information about yourself, you can add a picture, avatar - your picture or other image. If you do not have anything suitable, you can select a picture from the drop-down menu of images Google Talk. Your picture will appear immediately, and the two sides will see it next to your name and status on its list. If you upload a photo, it must be a file in JPG, GIF, BMP or PNG. Note that Google Talk will automatically resize the image to 32x32.

The program is extremely modest size - only 1.28 MB and 3.19 MB installer on the disc. The interface of the Google Talk was made in the on-guglovski minimalistichnom style - light and air.

Voice communication

Like most of today's Internet-pager, Google Talk supports voice communication. All you need to call using Google Talk, - this is the address of the other person is connected to the network, a microphone and speaker. All calls (within the limits of planet Earth) - free. If you want to voice communication, at least at one end it is desirable to have a broadband connection. At the other end may be even a modem at 56k. On a personal subjective feelings, the quality of voice transmission in GTalk is no worse than when using Skype. A Skype on voice quality is often superior to conventional phones. Of course, for optimal sound quality using a headset is recommended.

Compatibility with other messenger

Google Talk does not support direct communication with users of AIM, MSN Messenger, ICQ and Yahoo! Messenger. Google Talk supports open standards and uses standard protocol XMPP, which supports projects such as Earthlink, Gizmo Project, Tiscali, Netease, Chikka, MediaRing, and many others.

However, it is clear that completely abandon ICQ few wants. Consequently, the question arises: how can easily switch to GTalk, leaving ICQ? There are three ways:

Method 1. Using the native client.
If I do not want to abandon your beloved ICQ-client, you can simply download the GTalk-client and use it separately, together with ICQ-client. In this case, there is the possibility of voice communication. You can also use the web-client.

Method 2. Multiprotokolnye clients.
You can use multiprotokolnye clients. For example, Miranda, SIM, Kopete, Gaim, etc. They simply add a new account. The disadvantage of this approach is that the history of ICQ messages will not be stored on the server GMail.

Method 3. Using Jabber-Client connecting transport.
Google Talk provides an opportunity to connect to any external transport protocols (ICQ, AIM, MSN, Yahoo), also the history of correspondence with the storage server. There is, however, have fairly pomozgovat. To the GTalk is based on the technology of Jabber, you can use any Jabber-Client - good, their written a great many - Psi, Gajim, Tkabber, JAJC etc. Let's connect ICQ-Transport for example Psi (the rest of the clients are configured about the same).

Jabber - a distributed system, ie there is a lot of servers, on which there is transport in the various IM-systems, including ICQ. To its GTalk-account, you can connect transports almost any other Jabber-server. In the case of transport ICQ to remember that not all transports correctly pull nickname. If the username does not screw up, asechny contact will be visible only as numbers. To fix this, you need the file "\User\PsiData\profiles\default\config.xml" line false replaced by true. After that ship should pull smoothly.

To enable the transport, select Service Discovery and in the address bar, enter the selected our Jabber-server (list of public servers - at the end of the article). A list of available services. If one of them has the desired operations (eg, icq2.swissjabber.ch), register it. Transportation will request the login, password, and authentication, and after its confirmation must draw nicknames ICQ. All.

At the same algorithm can be connected any other transports (AIM, MSN, Yahoo). It can be done so that in one account was merged several GTalk IM-systems - with all correspondence will be kept on the server.

When vehicle use is sometimes there are certainly problems with the Cyrillic character set, so write "between" times of translit. So it is recommended to use the transport servers in the zone RU, although they have problems with stability.

Google Talk Architecture

In 2005, Google is quite logically decided that it makes no sense to build the IM-service in isolation from other communication services to the company. Therefore, even before the public launch Google Talk was integrated with the mail service GMail and social network Orkut. So the developers were able to accurately estimate the future workload and the willingness of service to the public launch.

In order to rationally distribute the load from the very beginning it was realized dividing users into groups and the distribution of each group on different servers. This allowed us to avoid the further evolution of server applications from one server to a large cluster. And this risk was: after the launch service was confronted with a huge number of users and the enormous workload. In addition, the developers provide a smooth transfer of users from one server to another without visible change for him - this has allowed flexibility to change the number of servers in the system.

Imagine an abstract IM-service with millions of users, each with an average of one day sending a hundred text messages. But the service processes and does not take a hundred million messages, and many times more. Judge for yourself: abbreviation XMPP stands for eXtensible Messaging and Presence Protocol. That is a simple messaging - only one of its functions. An equally important part is behind the scenes - it is displaying the presence of users are online, their actions (like "write message"), change status, the exchange of sensitive information between clients, etc. All of these messages as time and cost for the "presence" in the abbreviation XMPP. The total traffic generated by their functions, in times greater than from the actual traffic of messages and file transfers.

Dependence of the total number of presence-reports of the number of users of IM-services are not linear. Their number for a certain period of time, you can calculate very roughly as the product of three parameters: the number of users, the average length of a list of contacts and number of changes in the status of each user. Each new user in the system increases at least two of these three parameters. But thanks to the above principles (distribution of user groups on different servers) Google Talk handles billions of messages each day in less than 100 milliseconds, which allows to cope with the huge load.

In addition, the developers of Google Talk will try to give more attention to possible disruptions and any problematic situations. It is clear that any (even planned) a temporary stoppage of a part of the system dramatically increases the burden on the rest. Even if just done a reboot of the system, because of the clear cache servers will be fully operational again by no means immediately. Not here to talk about unforeseen failures, whose consequences are much more global ... That is why for the rapid elimination of potential problems - as with the overall operation of the system and its performance - logs maintained for all phases of query processing, as well as the possibility of profiling on the operating system servers.

Go to Google Talk

In recent years, ICQ obrosla mass deficiencies: become unwieldy and unstable working and integrated advertising annoys the user and "eats" the traffic. Minutes ICQ (Oscar) - closed and the company AOL (owner of ICQ) has a bad habit of this protocol is constantly changing, because of what had to periodically download the latest version of your messenger. When you send messages between different clients asechnymi frequent glitches (the inability to transfer files, the problem with the Cyrillic alphabet, etc.).

On the other hand, Google Talk is based on open technology Jabber, which lets you use a native client or any third-party jabber-client (according to the general architecture of the protocol). GTalk, unlike many other Internet-pager, the user provides maximum stability. After all, it is the largest Internet Corporation world - Google.

Two other key advantages - a close synchronization of contacts, GTalk with GMail address book and can connect to any external transport protocols (ICQ, AIM, MSN, Yahoo).

Finally, as I would like to say. It is unlikely that someone from users faithfully read the user agreement ICQ. Meanwhile, there is clearly stated that using ICQ, a user agrees that all rights to material transmitted via ICQ, the company is automatically transferred to AOL!!! Developers such boorishness Google Talk does not allow.

Review Monitor ViewSonic VLED221wm

ViewSonic VLED221wmLED lighting is slowly beginning to come into the market and home displays. Rumors about the beginning of the mass supply of various major manufacturers of monitors, LED matrix go quite a long time, but only now on the market first began to appear "live" panel. The pioneer in the promotion of LED-backlighting on the domestic market became the company monitors ViewSonic, released dvadtsatidvuhdyuymovuyu panel VLED221wm.

The uniqueness of the monitor is not in the LED lighting, which some manufacturers have used successfully before, but that in this case, the monitor with this type of lighting used conventional modern inexpensive TN-matrix. In so doing, the first monitor with LED-backlit targeted at the mass market rather than a narrow cohort of professionals who are willing to lay out for equipment killing, by the standards of an ordinary person, the amount. Out of this model led to a kind of excitement - not even many computer publications and media deemed it my duty to mention the release of "elite" technology to a wide market. Announcements curtsies and distributed to the right and left - note, in magazines and on the IT-portals promised unique color accuracy, enhanced color coverage, supporting the user hitherto not experienced juicy and pure colors and highest contrast value.

However, it is necessary to clarify the situation. Imaging in the TN-matrix occurs in the same way as before, and through the LED lights we have just expanded color coverage, the other parameters of the monitor - response time or viewing angles - its use does not affect. In addition, the monitor's color accuracy is determined mainly by the electronics settings panel and the backlight is involved only indirectly. Even the claimed value of the contrast of 12000:1 is achieved through the use of dynamic contrast. As a result, some experts were skeptical prospects VLED221wm appreciated against the backdrop of mass "a" delight, decided that ovchinka no dressing - Increased color coverage home users, they say, is not necessary, but everything else is normal and monitors with cathode lamps (CCFL). Yes, the image format type AdobeRGB simple user is editing, and all the advantages of the monitor with LED backlight for him is just a cleaner, more vivid colors, not the fact that it is very correct. Asked why pay for newfangled and expensive LED-backlit?

And because they like it! Because we can talk about arbitrarily overestimate the brightness or color shifted monitor, its not the most appropriate color, and the buyer will come into the store, look for juicy and clean picture on the screen, and buy it. And it's fully human, not everyone needs a professional monitor with accurate color, and with its use of features, many need a monitor with a "beautiful picture", that was a pleasure to watch and enjoy life. So here we want to emphasize that the ViewSonic VLED221wm - this is a monitor in order to "enjoy life" - pop, tech, with a juicy image. So, high precision color rendering and other professional characteristics, as we have said, the LED lighting does not have a relationship. We just "unusual" and the road home monitor, and precisely because of this we will assume, in assessing this bar.


Design

Design Monitor ViewSonic VLED221wm, in contrast to the internals of it, nothing particularly innovative is not allocated. He is accustomed to the other monitors the American manufacturer and trapetsiobraznaya Each stand. Many perceived that the "LED" display to be significantly thinner than "tube", as is the case with the matrices in laptops, but, as practice shows, the actual effect of substantially reducing the thickness of the panel virtually none. And, frankly, has been fighting for centimeter or two does not make sense.

The monitor is fully implemented in the coal-black glossy plastic of good quality. By the way, though a brilliant and a little light in the plastic decoration of the monitor like it is not everything, but thanks to its use VLED221wm looks very elegant and sophisticated. Sharma added, and overflowing with the smooth forms, which although still under the strict classical design, but still alive face the monitor. Fault can only mean that the monitor looks a bit heavy because of the massive stands and blocks audiokolonok below the screen. However, if you can stand to make a claim, the audiokolonok that regard, it is necessary to bear in mind that the momentum built not only good for the monitor output of two and a half watts each, but also equipped with a proprietary system, SRS WOW HD.

Speaking of the stand - as seen in the photos, nothing special, apart from the glossy plastic, it can not boast, and therefore the possibility of changing the provisions of the screen we have at least - there simply tilt the panel back in the entire twenty-two degrees. Honestly, I would like to more.


Equipment and connection

In a typical display using the cold cathode lamp (CCFL), as well as a set of color filters - blue, red and green, respectively, through which passes white light bulbs. Control the degree of light, you can control the brightness of the blue, red and green shades of a pixel and create a certain color. To control the light used by the cells of liquid crystals that change the plane of polarization of light passing through them, depending on the voltage applied to them. In this case, the problem is that the light from the lamps are not fully "white" and therefore had to use an additional filter, or to sacrifice some range of rotation of crystals. One way or another, but it imposes some restrictions on the scope of color monitors, that is, they displayed a range of colors. In the case of LED range is much "cleaner" and therefore the range of colors displayed on your monitor them more. Modules based on the LED lights are built either on the "white" LEDs (as usually happens in the matrices for laptops) or in packages of basic LED colors (RGB-LED). The biggest color coverage provide the same as last time, which, by the way, and used, according to the press, to monitor ViewSonic VLED221wm. In addition to color coverage, the advantage of LED backlighting in its ideal of uniformity (in theory). Plus, you can try to customize the color of light that can be used to color calibrate your monitor. Also, LEDs have a great life, displays based on them are designed for 100,000 hours of work.

Easy to notice that the passport details of the monitor application of LED backlight module practically not affected. Is proud to add the item - the value of color in the entire coverage area 118% NTSC, and the brightness is slightly below normal. Otherwise, we are a normal TN-matrix with the usual set of values.


Color and other characteristics

Lights to LEDs affects a much greater extent on the visual perception of the image, rather than on some objective parameters, which are responsible directly to the matrix itself and manage electronics. So it should come as no surprise that the results shown by the monitor ViewSonic VLED221wm in terms of color, are on the average level of the normal mass TN-matrix. Of the positive features worth noting are the qualitative conclusion of shades of black and gray. Ordinary household monitors are almost always slightly peresvechennye, these templates allow you to serious color deviation. With regard to the color shades, for example, the same yellow, the monitor issues a wishful thinking, and bright and juicy colors such pleasing to the eye, are not quite objectively those that were presented at the video monitor.

The depth of black in the display is impressive, in which the credit is not the least of which is perfectly flat lighting. In conventional displays, as though we may like, but the lights are always flaws in the form of a bright area of the screen or the reflection of light. In our previous tests, when we wrote that a monitor's backlight to its beautiful black uniformity, it was only in comparison with conventional displays with lighting for CCFL lamps. A "LED" matrix in this regard, just outside of competition. With regard to the brightness of white, then, in our view, it is somewhat high, and more comfortable will reduce the brightness in the settings menu.

In general, the color setting of the monitor is some criticism - it is, in principle, for the usual cheap TN-matrix, but, given the LED backlight and nemalenkuyu price monitor, I would like to see a more sensitive attitude to flowers. So, call ViewSonic VLED 221wm suitable for serious work with the graphics of course we can not. His path - entertainment, here it is due to the excellent uniformity of the black, its depth and bright colors look very, very advantageously.

The situation with the corners of the review is typical of the TN-matrix - if the horizontal is still not bad, when the observer changes position, the vertical contrast drops significantly, and nuances of change - for example, the white becomes pink-violet hue. Recently there appeared a very good TN-matrix in the plan, but only in comparison with each other, to the corners and xVA or S-IPS matrixes them away. As a result of latitude angles review VLED221wm - serednyachok of similar class and type of matrix displays.


The work in real applications

As we already mentioned above, irrespective of whether the dynamic contrast, or off, the contrast images from ViewSonic VLED221wm very high. The level of brightness to the text can be a bit excessive for sensitive people in this regard, and it makes sense to him a little lower. And in general, due to the softness of the picture and juiciness of tones not notice that before you monitor with TN-trivial matrix that has, on the contrary, light pallor and removal inconspicuous image. Regarding the graphics, there is, as we have already said, everything is very visually lively and pleasant, but if you remember how we display the test image on the monitor of reference, you will notice that the tone of the photos on VLED221wm is replete with multiple and too tepid. With regard to smooth gradients, they are simply excellent - affect the use of LED lights. Step is visible on the factory settings before 3.3.3, and to 251,251,251. In general, however, to work with the surf and looking photos VLED221wm fits well and very accurate color reproduction in this case is not important, in the opinion of engineers ViewSonic.

When viewing the video it looks nice and juicy, and very black level and uniformity as simple great. Fault can only be to the vertical corners of the review of the matrix, but this claim is standard on all TN-matrices. Otherwise, as I said - the quality of video playback is very, very impressed.

Regarding the game, the speed at matrix ViewSonic VLED221wm does not record, and the market has more speed and adapted to the game panel. However, in this case the player must choose - either live with it faded image geymerskogo monitor (and it is they are usually just so), or play in the response time and enjoy the games juicy and colorful picture. And, frankly, a choice-it is not obvious.


Conclusion

ViewSonic VLED221wm - this monitor is primarily for entertainment and recreation. Due to the unprecedented rich colors, perfectly uniform illumination of the black and excellent contrast, a visual picture looks very good, and viewing videos or photos on ViewSonic VLED221wm really brings a pleasure. That is why it is intended for domestic rather than professional use, which requires a somewhat different approach to setting up the matrix. In addition, it is not hard to guess that among the buyers of this monitor will also be fans of the latest technological innovations, in the end, ViewSonic VLED221wm - this is the first consumer LCD monitor is equipped with LED backlight.

News from Microsoft

The largest software corporation beginning in 2009 rather rapidly. At least, judging by the number of news coming from Redmonda.

Microsoft is willing to spend $ 150 million on an advertising campaign, which aims to persuade businesses not to reduce IT-budgets in the face of crisis. The campaign, launched on 11 January, will be the last, third phase of a broader campaign, People Ready, propulsive business applications and Microsoft has already done three years in a row. As the slogan was chosen as a new phase of the phrase "It's everybody's business". During the campaign these customers Microsoft will talk about how technology had helped their business. Among the participants in the campaign - Marketing Director of Coca Cola in North America, the head of the American unit Nestle Co-founder and producer of consumer goods Method. Stories of business were recorded over the phone, and then superimposed on an animated video. This allowed to save money on the production of commercials and to stress the cheap modern means of communication. In one of the advertisements Microsoft, located in the press, also said that video conferencing allows businesses to save on air flights. According to the forecasts of Forrester Research, the growth rate of expenditure on information technology in 2009 will be the lowest in the past six years and will total 1.6%. In total IT-budgets in the United States will be allocated $ 573 billion dollars.

The game console, which should change the Xbox 360, is unlikely to be released in the near future, the news agency Bloomberg. According to the president of entertainment units Microsoft Robbie Bach, Xbox 360 will remain in the market for longer than the Xbox. I recall that the prefix Xbox was released in 2001. Its successor, the Xbox 360 came out in 2005-m, that is, four years later. This means that the console is a new generation of commentators have already dubbed Xbox 720, do not go at least until 2010. According to Bach, release a more powerful console itself is not enough to conquer the market. He added that other new-generation consoles - such as the PlayStation 3 and Wii - likely kept on the market longer than their predecessors. In addition, Bach said that Microsoft intends to await the end of a recession. It should be noted that Robbie Bach, in the past fiscal year, led his unit made a profit, although the previous two years it has lost three billion dollars. During the first 11 months of 2008, consumers bought 3.3 million consoles Microsoft. Nintendo has sold 11 million Wii, and Sony - 2,8 million PlayStation 3.

The Israeli company N-trig, to develop technologies for use with touch screen, has attracted in the next round of financing of $ 24 million investment. One of the investors became a corporation Microsoft. In addition to Microsoft in a group of investors who invested in N-trig, includes companies such as Aurum Ventures, Challenger, Canaan Partners and Evergreen Venture Partners. N-trig representatives emphasized that the funds are planning to spend on further development of sensor interfaces. In addition, the company intends to cooperate more closely with computer manufacturers. Also, representatives of N-trig stated that intend to integrate their technology with the operating system Windows 7, which supports the sensor controls. It is expected that the users will be able to work with the intuitive interface. The headquarters of N-trig is in Israel. Branches operating in the U.S. and Taiwan. Currently, N-trig technology used in its computers, the Dell and HP.

And, finally, it became known last week, a joint release of Windows 7 and Office 14 will not, because the new version of Microsoft's office applications will be released only in 2010. One source of this information is a screenshot of the slide, which was published in the blog UX Evangelist, that Office 14 is released in 2010-m. Of the other details associated with Office 14 and have appeared in recent years, experts note, special attention has been given in the development of online services and cloud computing technologies.

The largest supplier of microprocessors Intel Corporation is prepared to side to reduce the prices of two-and Quad chips for desktop systems and custom Quad Xeon chip family for servers and workstations. According to Michael Makkonnela of the company's Pacific Crest, the prices of Quad core would be reduced by 15-40%. These figures are valid for the user, and for server solutions. Dual CPU podesheveyut 13%. Expert calls this non-routine event, as usual Intel updates price list in spring (April) and autumn (October) each year. Makkonnel said the two causes of the emergency adjustment of prices. Home - zatovarennost warehouses due to low demand at the end of last year. The second reason - the success of AMD, and their relatively low cost. Recently, AMD has reduced the cost of processor Opteron (codenamed Shanghai) at 30%. This 4-nuclear processors with the topology of 45 nm for servers. The world's largest manufacturer of computers Hewelett-Packard found the proposal more attractive, and reduced orders for processors corporation Intel. In addition, AMD has released the second generation of processors Phenom (Dragon), also performed on the basis of a new topological rules, which were highly appreciated by experts. Processors AMD Shanghai adopted by leading companies including Hewlett-Packard, Sun, Dell, IBM and Fujitsu. Economic crisis forces customers to reduce their costs, which in turn influences the corporate income. In early January, Intel is already the second time, has warned shareholders that the results of IV-th quarter of 2008 will be worse than expected, taking into account all the amendments. Revenues for the quarter results to reach $ 8.2 billion - a 23% lower compared to the same quarter of 2007 and 20% lower as compared to III quarter of last year. In November, the company waited until the $ 9.3 billion revenue. Analysts cited a shocking result, shares fell sharply. Markets chips targeted at the GPS and Wi-Fi, will be able to overcome the general decline in the industry for the production of semiconductors this year and show relatively good growth, analysts predict. As suggested in the British research company IMS, in 2009, the scope of GPS greatly expanded - in particular, such systems will appear in laptops, cameras and sports equipment. The result, according to analysts the company will become an annual increase in market GPS for $ 200 million (25%). In the period from 2008 to 2013 is projected to IMS, an average annual rate of growth GPS market will be 21.2%. Meanwhile, the Wi-Fi Alliance, in turn, evaluates the market growth of wireless communications chips in 2008 at 26%. In the same year, 2009 sales should increase by about the same - despite the crisis, the demand for Wi-Fi is growing steadily. The most rapidly growing segment of the market Wi-Fi, according to the analysts In-Stat, in 2008 were smartphones, netbuki and media devices. In 2009, this trend should continue, in addition to Wi-Fi-adapter will be fitted with an increasing number of desktops. Important field of application of these chips will become and industry of gaming devices.

Manufacturers of DRAM-memory Kingston Technology Transcend Information, A-Data Technology and Power Quotient International (PQI) raised prices for DRAM-chips of its own production to $ 1.

Experts note that in the near future, it could climb even higher, up to $ 1.5. Also added that rising prices and the DRAM-module. Thus, the highest price for the 1GB DDR2 module recently stood at $ 10, and the average - $ 8.5. Vice President of MSI, Henry Liu believes that in the near future, one of the four leading manufacturers of motherboards will have to withdraw from the market. The point is that not so long ago, sales of laptops have moved a significant mark, surpassing the sales of desktops. In addition, shipments of motherboards and graphics cards began to fall. This means, Liu argues that the market is nowhere more to grow. Some smaller companies have already left the market, and it gives you the opportunity to be the leading producers in the market together for another three years. But then, adds Liu, one of these four companies, including Asustek Computer, Gigabyte Technology, ECS and MSI, will have to withdraw from the market.

The share of Nokia smartphones in the market to decline from current 40% to 20%, say analysts of Generator Research. This will happen by 2013. At the same time the share of Apple in the smartphone market will grow to 40%. According to experts, the success of smart phones will help to bundle Apple iPhone and App Store (online store applications). It was expected that it will allow the company to repeat its success in the music market, achieved largely through the iPod and bundle iTunes. Another factor, which Apple will be able to increase market share, analysts called the company's financial reserves. For example, in late October 2008 on Steve Dzhobs said that Apple has $ 25 billion reserve fund and no debts.

They stress that this market is not yet saturated, and if the success of its new product, Dell may take a prominent share. Incidentally, the first rumors of Dell to enter the market of smartphones appeared two years ago, when at work in Dell moved the head of Motorola mobile unit Ron Garrikes. According to analysts of Kaufman Bros, as of that time the company Dell start to look to the mobile market.

Best news for Palm does not come up - the last few months the only goal of the company was to stop the sharp fall in shares. But the presentation of news shows that Palm, you may be able to restore investor confidence. The main thing you need to do - to a smartphone, known as Pre, met expectations. Despite such a sharp jump, the price of shares of Palm has not yet reached the peak, which was installed last year. And to the level at which the company was a few years ago, way more long. However, a couple of equally attractive as the Pre, suggestions - and it becomes quite possible.

I brought the fourth one in to the Apple Store today to get a "new" iPhone and this time I inspected the iPhone that they guy pulled out. The one he pulled out had a big red pixel that was stuck, the second one had a barely visible dead pixel and the third one had quite a few dead pixels. I know the guy, since I've been there so many times so I told him that I'd take the second one. I got it, signed the paperwork for the "new" iPhone and I left, when I got home tonight though, I saw the crack, near the headphone jack. I was about to scream! It's a 30 minute drive to the nearest Apple Store. And I've been there way too many times for my iPods and iPhone. So I tried to fill in the crack with white toothpaste and it didn't work. I was so pissed because I had an invisibleSHIELD with me too because I thought that this would be the "perfect" iPhone. So now, I want to know, is there one iPhone 3G without a dead pixel or a crack!? I really want to just get that one perfect iPhone and put it in this invisibleSHIELD. I know that I'm going to have to go to the Apple Store soon and get yet another "new" iPhone 3G. I would like to know why they took the second iPhone I ever had out of the little white box when the iPhone had only been out for 3 days, all they all refurbs? The guy at the store told me that they weren't because they haven't been out long enough, I wonder if the ones in white boxes are all of the iPhones that had a defect and are sent to Apple Stores as replacements. Well anyways, if anyone of you guys, or girls have a perfect iPhone 3G, let me know. Kanoa k, shutup, I'm not a grown man that has $300 like it's nothing.
