So what is cloud computing anyway? It is any software or hardware that can be used remotely. That is to say, the software does not have to be installed on your device and the hardware does not have to be in your physical location. Cloud computing is extremely beneficial for a variety of reasons. It allows remote access to applications and hardware through any internet connection and it has HUGE cost savings for most businesses because the soft/hardware can be rented as needed instead of purchased. These benefits are so prominent that almost everyone uses cloud computing on a daily basis. In fact, you're using cloud-based "software as a service" right now by using social media!

Happy Easter and 7th night of Passover from everyone here at Digital Industry. May tomorrow be filled with good food and good company.

By now you've heard of the #heartbleed bug. But what can you do about it? Here's a good link telling you which major websites were affected and which passwords you need to change TODAY:

And, don't forget that many other websites have been affected too. Be sure to look for any notices requesting password changes when you visit your favorite sites. But also be wary of any legitimate-looking emails that come from these sites. Often times, cyber criminals will send you emails with a link to "change your password". NEVER click on that email! You should be able to change passwords directly from the website, without having to ever navigate through an email link.

Spring Fact. Did you know that baby birds are born with the ability to sing but they only learn the song of their species after they are 10-60 days old? You'll be hearing a lot of these little feathered friends practicing soon!

Thinking of using that home router for your business needs? Think again! This past December, a hacker reportedly stumbled upon a back door that allows an attacker to gain admin access to home modems. The exploit was promptly posted online for all to take advantage of. Having your home network compromised is bad enough. But, can you imagine what would happen if hackers gained access to your entire business network and all the sensitive files on it? If you are concerned about the security of the data on your network, you need to have a business-class firewall and router. It doesn’t pay to go cheap on IT security!

Ever rip the smoke detector from the wall because it's incessantly beeping and you don't have a 9v battery? We've all done it and every time we do, we put ourselves at risk. According to the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), almost two-thirds of US home fire deaths happened in homes with no smoke alarm or no working smoke alarm. Check out Nest Protect to keep you and your family safe:

Did you know?: The Department of Defense used over 1,760 PlayStation 3 gaming consoles to build a super computer. With the price of a PS3 being about 1/10th the price of a single cell processor, it's no wonder that the DoD went with the PS3. The DoD is still buying those PS3's to update their super computers and increase their power. I'm sure Sony was quite pleased when they got the first order!

There is a lot of truth in the cliché “You’ll attract more bees with honey than vinegar.” This is especially true when working with professional consultants. Quite often, business owners take an adversarial approach to working with their vendors. Since the business owners are paying the bills, they believe they have the right to be demanding, difficult and even hostile. What they don’t realize is that vendor relationships can make or break a company and maintaining a good working partnership with all of your vendors can really be critical to your business’ success. The more respect and appreciation you give your vendor, the more they will want to do a great job for you.

Did you know that a Game Boy in 2000 exceeded all the computing power that was used to put the first man on the moon in 1969? That's an amazing testament to how far computing power has advanced in such a short time!
