Internet-Connected Devices – Need or Necessity?

Having access to the mobile internet is becoming an essential part of daily life for most of us, but thanks to a dizzying array of different devices for getting connected, it can be tricky deciding on the best one to use.

Of course, the smartphone has become a popular choice for many people on the go because many of the latest handsets have many of the same features found on a traditional computer, but all squeezed into a handy pocket-sized powerhouse. The only potential downside to all this is that screens and keyboards are often similarly squashed. So, for anyone who wants to be productive on the move then it’s often a better idea to investigate something a little more substantial.

Laptops have come a long way in recent years and often have formidable specifications while they’re also a lot less bulky than they used to be. Better still is the netbook, which is the shrunken version of the same thing, although again, the downside with these is that keyboard and screen real estate can be less impressive than the traditional laptop. Nevertheless, they’re a good bet if you want a bit of a compromise between productivity and portability.

The growing range of tablet computers is perhaps where things get most interesting. Apple started it all with the iPad, which has now been superseded by the iPad 2 and this is a fantastic device for accessing the internet while you’re on the go. A virtual keyboard, superior web browsing and email facilities plus Wi-Fi and/or 3G means that you can do pretty much everything you’d do on a laptop or netbook, but it’s even more convenient.

Failing that, try one of the many rival tablets that have appeared on the scene as they’re all pretty good, but beware some of the really cheap models at the bottom end of the market. The great thing about tablets is that they’re a little like smartphones in that you can choose an operating system that you get on with, while also enjoying great connectivity, without the bulk. Better still, that extra bit of screen space makes them a good bet for watching movies and suchlike.

Ultimately, if you spend time checking out the comparison websites and shopping around then there’s no reason why you shouldn’t be able to get a couple of these devices, such as a smartphone and tablet, within one deal. They do exist, and if you need to do a little bit of multitasking from time to time then this may be the best way to do it.

Landing a Coporate Computer Programming Job

Landing a Coporate Computer Programming Job

If you have great technical skills, enjoy math, and are already well-versed in programming languages, you may be able to find a job as a computer programmer for a company or non-profit agency.

The career path for a computer programmer can be exciting and pretty lucrative (if you find the right job). According to Pay Scale, starting salaries for computer programmers range from $35,198 to $52,076. There are certain skills companies require, and one of them is usually a certification or degree in computer science or computer programming. Below are some tips and information on a future job as a computer programmer or related careers.

Skills and Courses You Need to be a Computer Programmer

In order to be a successful computer programmer, you should be familiar with algorithms and source code. You should also be interested or have experience in testing and designing different types of software. Associate and bachelor’s programs usually require computer programming majors to take the following courses:

· Introduction to information systems

· Object-oriented programming

· Visual basic programming

· HTML and Javascript

· UNIX and LINUX

· Databases and SQL

· User-centered design and testing

· Systems analysis and design

If you have a degree in an unrelated field, but still have experience in the subjects above, you may be able to still find a technical job in IT or computer programming. However, most companies look for computer programmers, software engineers, web developers, and software consults with at least a bachelor’s degree in a related field, such as programming, computer science, or information systems. For more information, check out Princeton Review’s Career Page.

Developing Your People Skills: Internships and Presentations

While you are pursuing your bachelor’s or associates degree (or even after), it is important to develop your people skills and presentation techniques. When designing or testing new software, as a computer programmer or software engineer, you will usually have to communicate your decisions and work to your supervisors in some kind of presentation. Try to get involved in internships and presentation based courses as often as possible during your degree program. You don’t want to choke in front of your supervisors while presenting important information!

Talk to Potential Employers: Get in Touch with the Human Resources Department!

If you are currently enrolled in a degree program, you should still call and/or email the HR Departments you would like to work for. It is never too early to get some information. Ask them what types of courses or degree programs they require from their job applicants. Landing your dream job may be easier when you know employer expectations! If your university or town holds career fairs, take your resume and talk to company representatives there as well!

Hackers Snatched Google’s Android to Jailbreak World

Welcome to the Jailbroken Club, Google. As surely as there are hackers, so is there jailbreaking of popular and up-and-coming OS’s.

Even though the Android OS is an open system, Google isn’t crazy about users having access to the goodies behind the scenes of the Android OS as evidenced by their statement responding to the jailbreaking issue:

We’ve been notified of this issue (Jailbreaking of Android) and have developed a fix. We’re currently working with our partners to push the fix out and updating the open source code base to reflect these changes.

Google’s fix (patch) should be available in the next firmware update, RC30. Like I said, welcome to jailbreaking, Google. Be prepared for the endless cycle of patch – jailbreak – patch – jailbreak, ad infinitum. Even though the Android OS is open, there seems to be benefits for the programming diehards to jailbreak.

A Simple PHP Login Script Example

I’m developing a damn keen interest in PHP programming these days. The most wonderful tool and the heart of the web, PHP. Well you can’t take all alone with PHP. You need to be hand wash in JAVA-Script too, at which I’m not good for now.

image

Now am gonna follow PHP tips and tools post too!

Today I’m up here with a simple PHP Login Script, which is very similar concept which you might have seen sticked at many websites such as Facebook!

Now lets have an overview of it:

In this tutorial you’ll have to create 3 files
1. main_login.php  // Sticked with Login form
2. checklogin.php // The thing that will work with your Username and Password
3. login_success.php // What you’ll see once login is successful!

Steps you need to follow:
1. Create table "members" in database "test".
2. Create file main_login.php.
3. Create file checklogin.php.
4. Create file login_success.php.
5. Create file logout.php

Step1: Create table "members"

CREATE TABLE `members` (
`id` int(4) NOT NULL auto_increment,
`username` varchar(65) NOT NULL default ”,
`password` varchar(65) NOT NULL default ”,
PRIMARY KEY (`id`)
) TYPE=MyISAM AUTO_INCREMENT=2 ;


— Insert DATA into newly created DATABASE TABLE–

INSERT INTO `members` VALUES (1, ‘Mohit’, ‘mypassword’);

// A screenshot of PHP MY ADMIN SCREEN

Step2: Create file "main_login.php"

<table width="300" border="0" align="center" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="1" bgcolor="#CCCCCC">
<tr>
<form name="form1" method="post" action="checklogin.php">
<td>
<table width="100%" border="0" cellpadding="3" cellspacing="1" bgcolor="#FFFFFF">
<tr>
<td colspan="3"><strong>Member Login </strong></td>
</tr>
<tr>
<td width="78">Username</td>
<td width="6">:</td>
<td width="294"><input name="myusername" type="text" id="myusername"></td>
</tr>
<tr>
<td>Password</td>
<td>:</td>
<td><input name="mypassword" type="text" id="mypassword"></td>
</tr>
<tr>
<td>&nbsp;</td>
<td>&nbsp;</td>
<td><input type="submit" name="Submit" value="Login"></td>
</tr>
</table>
</td>
</form>
</tr>
</table>

Step3: Create file checklogin.php

<?php
$host="localhost"; // Host name
$username=""; // Mysql username
$password=""; // Mysql password
$db_name="test"; // Database name
$tbl_name="members"; // Table name

// Connect to server and select databse.
mysql_connect("$host", "$username", "$password")or die("cannot connect");
mysql_select_db("$db_name")or die("cannot select DB");

// username and password sent from form
$myusername=$_POST[‘myusername’];
$mypassword=$_POST[‘mypassword’];

// To protect MySQL injection (more detail about MySQL injection)
$myusername = stripslashes($myusername);
$mypassword = stripslashes($mypassword);
$myusername = mysql_real_escape_string($myusername);
$mypassword = mysql_real_escape_string($mypassword);

$sql="SELECT * FROM $tbl_name WHERE username=’$myusername’ and password=’$mypassword’";
$result=mysql_query($sql);

// Mysql_num_row is counting table row
$count=mysql_num_rows($result);
// If result matched $myusername and $mypassword, table row must be 1 row

if($count==1){
// Register $myusername, $mypassword and redirect to file "login_success.php"
session_register("myusername");
session_register("mypassword");
header("location:login_success.php");
}
else {
echo "Wrong Username or Password";
}
?>

Step4: Create file login_success.php

// Check if session is not registered , redirect back to main page.
// Put this code in first line of web page.
<?
session_start();
if(!session_is_registered(myusername)){
header("location:main_login.php");
}
?>
<html>
<body>
Login Successful
</body>
</html>

Step5: Create file Logout.php

// Put this code in first line of web page.
<?
session_start();
session_destroy();
?>

 

This is the simple and perfect example of a PHP Login Script. Drop your comments. 😉 Credit
