Meet Google TV

Posted on Posted in internet, programming, technology, website

The internet is just like peanut butter. It's amazing, addictive, and at its best when it's combined with other great things. The internet and mobile phone technology have come together like PB and J, and it's definitely a combination that's here to stay.

But today we're going to talk about a new winning duo featuring the internet. Peanut butter and Fluff, if you will. And the Fluff is TV.

Search Your TV …

Channel surfing is a big waste of time. Can you imagine if the internet was set up like TV is, and you had to flip from website to website or scroll down a "guide" screen until you came across something interesting? Finding what you're looking for would be frustrating and time consuming, and web surfing just would not be as fun.

But now picture life the other way around. Imagine that TV was like the internet, and a search engine was built into your TV. Think about how convenient it would be to search the TV for programming that meets your criteria. Yeah, that's more like it. And that's what Google has done with their Google TV setup.

And Merge It With the Internet

But that's just the beginning. Google TV also takes the entire internet and makes it available on your TV. So while you're searching your TV for the best show, you can also search the internet for related articles. And while you're watching the game, you can look up stats and sports blogs. Google TV takes two independent entertainment and information worlds and fuses them into one awesome phenomenon.

How It's Going So Far

Google TV is designed to work on special TVs or on existing TVs paired with a special box. Since Google TV enabled devices launched in the fall, Google TV has met some mixed reviews. Like any technology that sounds great in theory, it looks that there are kinks to be worked out now that people are actually using it. But between Google TV itself and its competitors such as Apple TV, it's likely that web-enabled TV is going to grow.

Smile! Your Site is on TV!

What that means for you is a) make sure you set some time TV in your daily schedule and b) make sure your website is where you want it to be. Whatever your objectives prefer PB and J, peanut butter and fluff, or peanut butter straight up, having the right web presence is one of the best ways to nourish your business. …

C Programming For Beginners

Posted on Posted in computer, programming

Have you heard of the type of programming language called C #? Perhaps you have, but for those of you unfamiliar with the term, this article is intended just for you. Here we will provide a very brief, and indeed, very basic definition of C # programming, as well some of the goals behind this particular type of language.

What Exactly Is C # Programming?

Many people have heard of C programming, and even C ++, but what is this C # programming all about? First of all, just in case you're pronouncing the term "cee number" or "cee number sign," you should be aware that in this particular instance the "#" sign after the "C" is actually referring to the musical symbol for "sharp." In other words "C # programming" is technically referred to as "C sharp programming."

C # is defined as a "multi-paradigm programming language which combines elements of functional, generic, imperative, declarative, class-based and component-oriented programming disciples." In other words, C # programming is a modern programming language which is intended to be much more user-friendly than previous languages ​​of its type.

C #, like so many of our technological discoveries these days, was developed by a team from the Microsoft Corporation as part of the.NET revolution, and was first released in 2001. Later on, C # was approved by ECMA International, one of the leading international organizations that set the standards for information and communication systems.

Basic Goals of C # Programming

The C # programming language was intended to be easier to learn and simpler to use than its programming language prerequisites, and there before by it very design it is considered to be the language that most closely resembles Microsoft's Common Language Infrastructure.

The goals of the C # designers were fairly straightforward and according to ECMA International included:

– C # language should provide support for common software engineering principles
– Source code portability is very important
– Internationalization is very important
– Intended to be a "simple, modern, and object-oriented language

10 Content Marketing Trends Everyone Is Talking About

Posted on Posted in internet, programming, technology

Every year seems to bring a new set of marketing trends, those “can’t miss” opportunities that scream out for attention. If we were to hop on every trends, we’d certainly grow dizzy from exhaustion. Nevertheless, there are some trends that we’d be foolish not to recognize.

As we begin the last chapter of 2017, many companies are still working through the creation of a bona fide content marketing strategy. If that’s you, here are some hints: Native advertising continues to be the gateway drug to success, and mobile continues to be the flavor of every month.

That said, Smart Insights reports that content marketing is THE single most important technique for driving incremental sales in 2017. In an industry that’s all about experimentation, some key trends stand out.

Here are 10 content marketing trends that everyone is talking about.

1. Brands Will Continue to Invest in Original Content

Recently, it became public knowledge that tech giant Apple is planning to invest of $1 billion in original content. Though some gossip states that Apple is making this move to take on Netflix, we believe there’s more on Apple’s mind than video streaming. As competition in this space heats up, brands need to stay relevant. Valuable, original programming can help companies grow an audience and keep current customers satisfied.

Google is also purchasing original content from media companies and brands to fill in content gaps, while Facebook is investing huge amounts of capital on original video. Not to be outline, online shopping giant Amazon will perhaps be the largest investor of all. Though the consequences remain to be seen, one thing is for sure: content marketing is taking the spotlight.

2. Transparency Will Reign King (or Queen)

Consumers are becoming increasingly desensitized. We want — and often expect — companies to be transparent, authentic, and dedicated to giving back. After all is said and done, however, many consumers are reporting frustration with brand advertising, environmental claims, charitable contributions, and corporate support for various causes. Though such efforts have been successful for some brands, this type of promotion is increasingly being perceived as desperate or dishonest.

Moving forward, brands need to focus on transparency and disclosure to close this gap as much as possible. Enter: Influencer Marketing.

Yet, working with influencers can be sticky. The Federal Trade Commission continues to take measures to protect consumers from companies who aren’t transparent enough, including work with influencers. Take what happened with Machinima. In 2015, the FTC slapped Machinima, a YouTube gaming network, with a warning for not disclosing paid endorsements to YouTube influencers.

And this is far from the only instance. A quick Google search shows that a lack of disclosure and transparency have caused trouble for many brands. To build (and maintain) the trust of your audience, the next phase of influencer marketing and branded content needs to ensure that every piece of content created is transparent.

3. Content Marketing Budgets Will Continue to Increase

Across the globe, companies are spending huge amounts of …

Linked Lists – What They Are and How to Use Them

Posted on Posted in programming

Most, if not all, programmers have at least heard of a linked list. If you have not then you are about to. In this article I will be outlining what exactly a linked list is, the advantages of using one, and I will try to do this in the simplest terms that I can.

So, lets get to the point. When you are programming, it is a very common occurrence that you want to keep track of a list or set of data. The easiest way to do this is with an array. Whether it is a single dimensional, or more gridlike 2-3 dimensional array, it will typically suite your needs just fine.

But, what do you do when you have an array of say, a million items. Naturally this is going to take up quite a bit of memory. Still, an array will probably do the job just fine. So now lets look at Object Oriented Programming (OOP). Maybe you want to create an array of Objects, each with a fair number of variables. This memory adds up quite fast. And to make things worse, an array of memory is all contiguous; the memory is all in one solid chunk.

A way around this solid chunk of memory is, yes you guessed it, a linked list. The beauty of a linked list is that it does not have to have contiguous memory. The different objects, typically called nodes, each contain a link variable. This link points to the next item in the list, where it may be in memory. Think about it kind of like a puzzle. You typically would not store a puzzle completely built because those "contiguous pieces" are bulky and hard to store; and if you wanted just one you've got to take them all. So instead, you break the puzzle apart, because you know each piece link to the next one piece. This way you can work with just the piece you want and still keep track of the rest.

Another great advantage to linked lists is that they are customized to exactly what you want. A linked list is not typically something included in a programming language, it is something that you build yourself. This may be a bit bit more difficult than using an array, or even an arrayList, but it proves itself in power.

If anyone has any questions about Linked Lists, feel free to ask on the forum. Either I will help you personally or someone else will. …

Create Computer Games – Get Started on Creating Your Own Virtual Worlds

Posted on Posted in computer, internet, programming, technology

I’ve always loved video games, ever since I first played them on a friend’s computer in the afternoon after elementary school. There’s something almost magical about the fact that we can move images around and interact with virtual worlds, a living fantasy presented for us to interact with however we please. I’ve also always wanted to make games myself but, until recently, didn’t have the technical knowledge to do so. Now, I’m a second year software engineering student, so if I weren’t able to code a game without too many dramas there’d be something drastically wrong. But what about the common person: the person for whom the term ‘memory leak’ conjures up images of their grandfather, ‘pipeline’ is where the water flows, and ‘blitting’ is unheard of? Well, everyone can get in on the game creation process, and you don’t even need to learn ‘real’ programming to do so.

So where do games start? With an idea. Games, like all fiction, require an idea to be successful. Sure, in the same way you can just sit down and write a story without foresight, you can jump on in and slap a game together. However, unless you get ridiculously lucky, the best works are usually the ones that have been well thought out beforehand.

There are two methods of planning a project. You can start from a known technological standpoint and build your project on top of that or you can just go for the design, add as many features and ideas as you like, and then remove the ones that you can’t use when you’ve decided on the technology you’re going to implement the game with. In general, the second type is probably the best one to go with when designing games. When you’re first starting out however, the first option will save you many headaches.

So, for a first game you’re going to want a pretty simple idea. Don’t get me wrong, crazy-go-nuts game ideas are fantastic, and there should be more of them out there, but you’re not going to be able to create a real world simulator with fifty billion virtual people all interacting real time with your actions having a butterfly effect on the future of the virtual universe when it’s just your first game. Really. Many people try it; none that I know of have succeeded. Imitation is the best way to start out. Simple games such as ‘Space Invaders’, ‘Tetris’, ‘Pacman’ or even ‘Pong’ are great places to start. All are largely simple to create but have some inherent challenges. ‘Pacman’ for example, requires path finding for the ghosts. I recommend that you start even simpler than that for your very first attempt. ‘Space Invaders’ is a nice point to jump in. You can make a simple, complete game without much effort and it’s almost infinitely extensible.

If you’re stuck for an idea, pick a genre that you enjoy. Do you love adventure games such as ‘Monkey Island’, ‘Grim Fandango’, ‘Space Quest’, ‘King’s Quest’ …
