    In today’s fast-paced business environment, convenience is equally important to customers and businesses alike. When consumers research their products and commit to a purchase without leaving the sofa, and employees are in and out of the office several times a week, businesses can soon be left behind if they don’t cater to these recent changes. Many businesses can address these issues with a centralised, online platform for collaborative work and file sharing – tackling everything from the development of new products and services to the tracking of a customer’s purchase.

  • How Do EMF Protection Devices Protect You from Dangerous Health Effects

    18 Sep 2014 | 3:30 am
    As more information becomes known by the general public, certain fears arise and grow and sometimes fade away again. Several years ago, at the beginning of the rise in popularity of wireless devices, no one was thinking of the potential dangers of EMF radiation. Recently, however, the additional information about these waves have rekindled more substantial public fear. Public reaction and the current trend in fear should not be your deciding factor on whether to take action to protect yourself from the possible health risks of EMF radiation or not. Instead, do some research yourself and…
  • EaseUS Todo Backup Review

    25 Aug 2014 | 1:01 pm
    Have you ever had a computer crash at your home or office and been left without any backup? If not, let me just be frank: it is one of the worst things that can happen. Seeing that I work from home, a few years ago this happened to me and I was out data, articles, contacts, everything. All gone, overnight when my computer crashed and I could not get back any of the data. It does not matter if you are just a home computer user or a business man, backing up your computer is a must. Most people in the USA backup their data less than once a year which is alarming when they have so much to lose. I…

  • Designing a site for a specific age group

    Diversity is a very important web design element for any successful business. If your website is aimed at a specific age group you will need to ensure that it is structured in an attractive way to that particular group of people. It should also be readable to the right age group. If you are designing a website for a client that wants a certain age group targeted, finding innovative ways in which to focus on that group of people is essential. Web development targeting certain age groups will need to focus on a variety of factors such as psychological aspects, the user interface presented and…

    Be sure to check out part one of this theory if you haven’t yet. WARNING: Massive spoilers and fan speculation. In the first installment of “Time is a Flat Circle”, a theory was hatched via a mysterious new achievement datamined from the Warlords of Draenor beta. The achievement goes as follows: Time is a Flat Circle: Everything we have ever done or will do, we are going to do over and over and over again. Before I continue, there’s something I’d like to cover first: To those of you who adore True Detective as much as I do, this quote will sound very familiar, and to those who…

  • Is It Good? Batwoman: Futures End #1 Review

    Jordan Richards
    18 Sep 2014 | 12:56 pm
    See all reviews of Batwoman (8)After last month’s issue of Batwoman, everyone seems pretty pissed off at what has happened to the series. I personally wasn’t as up in arms about it like others were, but I was a little disappointed (plus, the comic ended up losing one of its hooks that made the series feel unique). Now we come to the Futures End tie-in; can it give this comic a much needed boost? Is it good?

It is strange, that’s for sure, but is it good? The Life After #3 (Image Comics) Buy From Amazon Fialkov and Gabo begin by reintroducing the traditional Biblical story of Jesus Christ. Fialkov adds some light humor when God interacts with Mary telling her straight-up to avoid conversation about her betrothed because after all God does not want to be the other man.

  • Review: 'The Art of Hibbary', by Hillary Renee Luetkemeyer

    12 Sep 2014 | 1:08 am
    This is the fifth volume in Sofawolf Press' Artistic Visions series of art-sketch format albums. The first four each showcase one (or two) of the best artists in furry fandom; Kenket (Tess Garman), Brian and Tracy Reynolds, Ursula Vernon and Henrieke Goorhuis. Each is a professional artist, but is especially well-known in furry fandom for convention conbook covers, badge art and other commissioned art, and trades with other Furry artists; many of which are posted on DeviantART, FurAffinity and other art websites. Hibbary (Hillary Leutkemeyer) has been a member of DeviantART for over a decade,…
  • Roz Gibson's 'Griffin Ranger' meets Kickstarter goal

    10 Sep 2014 | 1:51 am
    Roz Gibson's Kickstarter campaign for the novel Griffin Ranger reached its goal of $6000, and its stretch goal of $6500, meaning the book will now have five to six interior illustrations by artist Katie Hofgard. Seventy-five backers combined for a total of $6,525, including 10 backers who donated over $100. Ever since I was little, I loved reading books with animal protagonists. There’s a decent range of books like that written for a juvenile audience, but not a whole lot for people who’ve reached drinking age. Even if I found one, most of the time it was meant to be a statement on the…

She has won the Ursa Major Award for both the Best Anthropomorphic Other Literary Work (these book collections) and for the Best Anthropomorphic Graphic Story, for both 2012 and 2013. If you haven’t read “Slightly Damned” yet, these are a lot more fun than reading through the strip’s online archives a page at a time.

  • The Maze Runner Review

    20 Sep 2014 | 7:08 am
    Well, this was a pleasant surprise. Straight off the bat, I will admit that I knew next to nothing about The Maze Runner, except that it was a series of YA novels and that I only knew because I happened to work in the juvenile section of a book store when the books were first coming out. Other than that, I knew nothing: there was a maze and Dylan O’Brien is in the film. Thus, the main reason why the best friends and I wanted to see this movie. We’re all Teen Wolf fans and hold a special soft spot for Stiles, played by Dylan O’Brien so we trekked off to see this movie. And we were all…

Our last interview features Tammy, and because her husband Ian cosplays along with her more often than not, we get to hear a bit about cosplaying as a couple.

  • Extant 1×13 Review: Ascension

    19 Sep 2014 | 10:16 am
    I stuck with Extant the entire season, and though it made a few missteps, the finale made it all worthwhile for me. I’m all for shows that have a strong female lead (in this case, a POC one), aliens, robots, and raises questions about one’s humanity. Minor spoilers are extant in this post. You have been warned! CBS promoted the show very hard but their hope it will match the premiere of Under The Dome didn’t happen. Week after week Extant saw a drop in viewers, and the timeslots kept changing. The network evens started to air two episodes together. Some fans saw this as an indication…

    This was the first Oz Comic-Con to take place in Sydney and the 10th over all and I have to say it was a pretty well-run event.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, Twentieth Century Fox has greenlit the X-Men spin-off, Deadpool. Meaning that the fan favorite (and this fangirl’s favorite Marvel character) Merc with the Mouth will finally headline his own much-deserved movie.

    Okay, so you’re looking for washboard abs, fun plotlines, and sexily brooding heroes? Look no further than Arrow on the CW. It could have been another terrible show about a crusader in tights versus a mustache-twirling villain (think The Cape…actually don’t, that show was terrible).  Instead, you get Oliver Queen, hot scion of the wealthy Queen family, shipwrecked on a deserted island for five years, rescued and returned to the arms of his crazy dysfunctional family (Dad died in the same shipwreck, Mom has remarried the guy who took Dad’s place in the firm – awkward!) and a…

And the reason for their absence is the 3DS hardware.

Having a firewall in each company’s internet connection allows the business to setup online rules for the users. For example, with the firewall the company can control the access to certain websites, giving it the control of how employees use the network.
