The case for dedicated servers

Depending upon your computer needs, using dedicated servers may just be the strategy that you need to employ. If your need for data storage is such that a serious downtime might severely compromise your business, service capabilities to clients or any other major disruption, you may want to consider a more secure storage plan than just using cloud servers. A good example of this is the recent downtime for a day and a half of the App store, run by Apple. There are businesses and users that run their entire business through the App Store and iTunes from the Cloud as backup and storage, and yet for whatever reason the App Store was down for that period of time. There was no warning, no heads up, the site was just simply down and people only found out about it initially by Googleing “App store not working.” or some similar verbiage. The result was the connection to a website that gave a generic message that things were down and was being worked on. Continue reading

More Likes on YouTube Videos

I was thinking last night, and I came up with an idea I really like for making a cool YouTube channel. I think that it will work out well, but I am going to keep my fingers crossed, because you never know, and there are some potential pitfalls that await me. But I am going to try to start the channel soon and want to buy YouTube views to get things started, so that i don’t have to wait around and watch the first few views on my videos trickle in.

I think that there is a lot higher chance of one of my videos going viral, if I am able to buy views for it, shortly after the video is posted. Of course, it also has to be a video that is worth going viral, but in general, I think that is how things get started. Well, it is clearly more complex than that, or everyone would be using it to their advantage. Continue reading

I Needed a Social Media Team

I had resisted transitioning my business to the online world simply because I did not know enough about the Internet or online marketing to know that I would be successful with it. As my sales dropped though, I realized that I needed to finally make the move. I wanted to set myself up with a good team first, because I really did not have a clue on what I was doing. It was easy enough to find a good website designer, and it actually didn’t take me long to find Panacea marketing either.

A good friend had told me that even with the best website around, I would not be able to attract attention to it unless I had a social media presence. I knew she was right because even though I don’t do Facebook or Twitter, they are terms that I hear many times throughout the day. Continue reading

A year later, another Google Doodle in celebration of Malaysia’s Hari Merdeka


Today is Malaysia’s 57th Hari Merdeka (Independence Day) and yet again, Google has decided to honour Malaysians with this dedicated Doodle for the occassion. Coincidentally, it was exactly one year ago that we last blogged here so it seemed fitting that I have decided to update the blog with news of this Doodle.

This latest Google Doodle is based on petals from the hibiscus. The hibiscus is Malaysia’s national flower and the artist have used both red and yellow ones for this illustration. The artist is Red Hong Yi.
