I Had To Show This

I know that you are not supposed to talk about books online, but I can tell you that this is probably by far one of my favorite books right now. It’s called UrbanScience: Education for the Hip-Hop Generation. It’s absolutely awesome. I ended up coming across a great review of it, too. It pretty much says it all as far as I’m concerned:

 

Straight rows. Uniforms. Cafeteria food. Duck-Duck-Goose. Aerosmith. English only. Some of us learned to navigate this foreign terrain. We had teachers who met us halfway and made us feel welcome, appreciated, and accepted. Others did not fare so well. They felt bad about school, never feeling part of the culture. School was something they had to do. It made them feel deficient, and they couldn’t wait until each day was over. Those who stuck it out made it to high school; some dropped out before eighth grade. …

What a difference a few months can make. Since late 2001, Apple has updated its entire product line, making now the perfect time for Macworld to take stock of the latest crop of Macs.

yecmOne important update is the unique flat-panel iMac, which we review here along with Apple’s other new additions: the 14.1-inch iBook and the 800MHz, 933MHz, and dual-processor 1GHz Power Mac G4s (see the reviews elsewhere in this article). And to help you understand the differences between models, Macworld Lab tested representatives from all the Mac product lines (see “Speed Skaters”). We’ll also give you pointers on what to consider when deciding which new system is best for you. Read on for a look at the current world of Macs.

Afghanistan Remembered: Ugly Times

August 23rd, 2015 by Mustapha

This is some real ugliness I picked up while in the stacks. Check it out:

A soldier points out how the eyes of the tawny, dark-haired children reflect the history of this crossroad: Almond shapes suggest the long-ago westward passage of Genghis Khan and the Mongols; blue and green eyes recall Alexander the Great’s eastern push through the Hindu Kush; deep brown stands for the local Pashtun tribes that outlasted them all. It’s hard to know what mark U.S. troops will leave on this land.

Whatever it is, though, it’ll be decided here. This area near the mountainous border with Pakistan is where America’s long war in Afghanistan–10 years and counting–comes full circle. Just inside Pakistan is the sanctuary where CIA operatives once armed the mujahedeen who fought the Soviets and, later, joined al-Qaida. Nearby is the Tora Bora mountain redoubt where Osama bin Laden vanished in December 2001, eluding U.S. forces

Easy Laptop Hard Drive Recovery

August 22nd, 2015 by Mustapha

Example of laptop hard drives.

Times will come when blunders arise and a laptop user may lose his data or even lose the hard drive’s ability to store and retrieve data. Software engineers have come up with software that will either use the memory location of data to recover information or the engineer may use some application software to trace back the original files to where they were. One of the methods that is used is where the engineer uses software to establish the Host Protected Area of the hard drive, which simply means, the region of the hard drive that is visible to the laptop Operating System. The application then uses command queries to establish the size of the hard drive. Basically, the last memory address available on the hard drive provides the hard drive size.

Next, if the last memory does not contain data, the host protected area is established, meaning the data stored in it is safe. Finally, the reading of the native address gives the information that was in the hard drive and can now offer the true size of the laptop hard drive. But the major limitation is that the Host Protected Area is only useful when the user has software to utilize it. Thanks to this change in technology, laptop hard drive recovery is a lot easier than it used to be.

Hard drive failure is a common problem for today’s portable computer systems. What this means is that professional data recovery services are performing a lot more laptop hard drive recoveries than ever before. Hard drive recovery is based on the fact that all Read the rest of this entry »

Editing Video On An iBook? Seriously?

August 20th, 2015 by Sal

evoibAs with its predecessor, the new iBook is a great portable editing machine and is improved with its new 500MHz speed. For a laptop, this machine is quite small and inexpensive (ranging from $1,299 to $1,799 MSRP). Its integration with the FireWire technology, inclusion of QuickTime 4.12, and its latest version of iMovie 2.03 make it an easy-to-use and inexpensive video-editing solution.

It should be noted that iMovie2 is bundled free with all iBooks (and iMacs) and can be purchased to run on any G3 and G4 machine. On older machines, OS 9.1 and QT 4.12 are recommended. However, iMovie2 is not OSX ready yet.

The iMovie 2.03 GUI is a pleasure to use. (For an in-depth review, see Tony Gomez’s article in February 2001 C&CV.). It has four working areas: At top left is the Main Viewing window for viewing your edits; at top right, the Shelf Window for acquiring your …

Things You’ll Want When You Buy A New Laptop

August 16th, 2015 by Sal

ybanlIncreasing numbers of computer buyers are choosing a laptop not just for travel, but as a direct substitute for a home desktop. During the first nine months of last year, while desktop sales plummeted, laptop sales soared. Over the past three years laptops have actually taken market share away from desktops.

The reason for the shift? Faster processors, brighter and larger displays, and more-efficient batteries have narrowed the gap between desktop and laptop. For many people, the performance difference has become academic. Of course, most desktop computers still outshine laptops in options you can choose, such as keyboard design and display size. But in a fast-paced society, those differences may not outweigh the ability to plop a computer on the kitchen table or have it handy in a classroom or airport.

If you’re considering a laptop for significant duty around the house, you should consider one of the two types we tested

Considering Offer In Compromise Help For Your Taxes

August 13th, 2015 by Sal
0

aaoichAn offer in compromise help is granted to individuals who cannot pay the tax debts in full amount because of their circumstances. However, before this is being given, an individual should be eligible for this grant. Basically, the Internal Revenue Service will have to go through the person’s present condition and determine whether he is not capable of paying the tax debts charged to him. They will see if the person has fulfilled the filing as well as payment requirements. If an individual is in an open bankruptcy proceeding, he will not be eligible for an offer in compromise help. The Internal Revenue Service’ pre-qualifier assessments should be used in order to confirm the eligibility and prepare for the preliminary proposal.

Once a person becomes eligible for the offer in compromise, he will have to submit the necessary requirements posted in the IRS’ website. There is a non-refundable application fee for …
