Keep your Customers by Offering a Wi-Fi Hotspot

Giving your customers access to an Internet connection with unbelievable speed can increase the attractiveness of your business to your target audience.  For instance, someone wanting to stay at a Bed and Breakfast would much prefer to settle in at one advertising a WiFi connection than one without Internet access.
In today's world, people conduct business or simply stay in touch even while they're on vacation and without high-speed Internet access, they're doomed to miss out on important communications.
B&Bs aren't the only ones jumping onto the WiFi bandwagon.  Other small business owners are realizing the importance of catering to their customers' needs, such as the owners and operators of campgrounds, independent bookstores, apartment buildings, family-owned restaurants, and coffee houses.
It's not just travelers looking for a WiFi connecting spot.  Many local residents like to make sure a business carries this feature so that they can get out of the house and relax with access to a high speed Internet connection.
The cost of setting up your own WiFi hot spot is minimal, but it goes a long way in fostering the relationship you want to develop with your customers.  It's one must-have aspect many people check on before committing to visit a certain establishment.
If you want to stay competitive with other businesses in the community, set up your own WiFi hot spot and offer it s an added incentive for people to visit your place of business. 
The first thing you do is invest in some equipment, which will include a Broadband connection and credit card processing in case you want to offer your WiFi services at a fee, as some businesses do to deter squatters from taking up space all day in their place of business.
Buy some hotspot equipment for less than $300 and install it according to the directions.  You want to choose an option that delivers good technical support for your customers, in case you don't want to be responsible for troubleshooting yourself. 
Small business owners have the choice to buy and install the WiFi equipment and system themselves or hire someone to do it for them, such as a hotspot specialist or management service.  Regardless of which installation method you choose, make sure it's running effectively before you advertise it to the public.  Then sit back and watch as the loyalty to your business grow exponentially.

5 Tips to Secure Your Wireless Router

Wi-Fi routers can give you enough headaches without worrying if someone is leeching off your connection. You pay for that bandwidth you receive every month, and with so many movies to stream, games to play, and work to remotely connect to, you don't want to share your Internet pipe.

Not only can having others access your router slow down your connection, but there is the possibility they might get you into some legal entanglements. An incident made news least year in which a man was falsely arrested in child pornography charges. The guilty party was actually a neighboring bandwidth parasite neighbor using the innocent man's connection to download the odious content.

While a false arrest is an extreme case, having unauthorized users can cause performance issues and pose a security risk. Here are a few ways to keep leeches off your router.

    Password encryption should be well-known to anyone with a wireless router. Never leave your router open without a password, and there are very few reasons for the average home and small business user to not encrypt wireless signal with WPA2 security.

    Turn off broadcasting is a feature available in just about all routers. For example, you name your network "Jane's Wi-Fi." You know what the wireless name is (also called SSID), so you can easily enter the SSID into any devices you want to access that network. Other people, however, do not need to know the SSID. To prevent outsiders from seeing your network's name turn off broadcasting in your router's settings. This capability is typically found within the wireless router settings page in the router's management software. In the below image the "Enable SSID Broadcast" option would be unchecked, so that your network's name does not show up in other people's wireless network scans.

Disable Guest networks because lots of router now ship with an extra wireless network configured for guests to access your router. A guest network lets guests share your Internet connection without giving them access to shared files and devices on your private network. Guest networking is often used by businesses to provide customers courtesy access, but I recommend home users turn it off. Guest network passwords are sometimes configured with no security, or default passwords that anyone can easily look up on Google if they know the kind of router you have. If you are friend enough that I give you permission to share my router, you are friend enough to know my passphrase key.

MAC Filtering is a feature also found in most routers. You add the MAC address (a unique identifier for that unit) of any device you want to give access to the router into the filtering list. Any device not on the list that tries to get on will be blocked from accessing.

Get a network monitoring app such as Fing which will scan your network and provide information that you can use to see if you have any unwanted users or devices on your network. Fing will perform a discovery on your network and report information such as hostnames, IP addresses, MAC addresses, and more. If there is any information you don't recognize, you can investigate and found out if someone or something is on your network that shouldn't be.

Sri Lanka to be the first country to have universal internet access with Google Loon

Sri Lanka’s government and Google on Tuesday signed an agreement to cover the Island with 3G internet under ‘Google Loon project’.

Sri Lanka is the first country in the world to have Internet access covering the whole country with the government support, Google Vice President and Project Leader on GoogleX Project Loon, Mike Cassidy said.

Project Loon is the latest moonshot from Google[x]: balloon-powered Internet access.

It is a network of balloons traveling on the edge of space, designed to connect people in rural and remote areas, help fill in coverage gaps and bring people back online after disasters.

“With our system we use LTE which is a common protocol most of the telcos use around the world. So anyone with a smart phone would be able to get internet access. One of the key things we do is we partner with the local telcos. In New Zealand we partnered with Vodafone.” Cassidy said.

It is expected to place 13 balloons above Sri Lanka over the next few months (One balloon is expected to last over 100 days) and internet service providers will have to connect this network through these ‘floating towers’ which will ultimately reduce their transmission costs.

“Matara covered or Jaffna covered is now history. In a few months we will be able to say Sri Lanka covered,” addressing the signing ceremony Foreign, Telecommunications and IT Minister Mangala Samaraweera said.

“As a result of this agreement, the entire Sri Lankan island – every village from Dondra to Point Pedro – will be covered with affordable high speed internet using Google Loon’s balloon technology.” Samaraweera said.

The project is handled by ICTA with the collaboration of former Facebook executive Chamath Palihapitiya who now represents lotus flare, a leading mobile content provider.

Apple iCar Looking Even More Likely

Rumours of the Apple iCar have been sparked once again as reports show that Apple has roped in the head of operations at Chrysler to work on an electric ‘iCar Project’ to rival Tesla.
Apple’s list of car specialists just keeps getting bigger with the tech giant hiring Doug Betts, ex-head of global operations at Fiat Chrysler automobiles.
Betts has now changed his job status to “operations-Apple”.
Although pretty cryptic, we can only guess that Betts has joined Apple to work on a car project.
Since February of this year, reports of several hundred employees working on an Apple-branded eclectic car shot into public attention.
Other employees of Apple’s new project include the head of research and development of Mercedes-Benz North American Lab.
It's no wonder everyone is flocking to Apple, as according to Bloomberg, Apple is offering $250,000 signing bonuses with gigantic salary hikes.
Unfortunately we still have no idea what the iCar will look like or any of its features as Apple is keeping things very much behind closed doors.
But with Betts in Apple’s corner and their specialist team getting bigger, hopefully it won't be long before we see the fruits of their labour.
Interested in the Apple Car? Read everything we know about the project here.

Celebrate the Biggest Day for Positive Environmental Action!

World Environment Day (WED) is the United Nations’ principal vehicle for encouraging worldwide awareness and action for the environment. Over the years it has grown to be a broad, global platform for public outreach that is widely celebrated by stakeholders in over 100 countries. It also serves as the ‘people’s day’ for doing something positive for the environment, galvanizing individual actions into a collective power that generates an exponential positive impact on the planet.

The WED theme this year is "Seven Billion Dreams. One Planet. Consume with Care." The well-being of humanity, the environment, and the functioning of the economy, ultimately depend upon the responsible management of the planet’s natural resources. And yet, evidence is building that people are consuming far more natural resources than what the planet can sustainably provide.

Many of the Earth’s ecosystems are nearing critical tipping points of depletion or irreversible change, pushed by high population growth and economic development. By 2050, if current consumption and production patterns remain the same and with a rising population expected to reach 9.6 billion, we will need three planets to sustain our ways of living and consumption.

Consuming with care means living within planetary boundaries to ensure a healthy future where our dreams can be realized. Human prosperity need not cost the earth. Living sustainably is about doing more and better with less. It is about knowing that rising rates of natural resource use and the environmental impacts that occur are not a necessary by-product of economic growth.
