Coming from a nurse or a financial institution manager, it’d seem friendly. But from a pc? I call it insolence.

Over Christmas, I offered a brand new computer. The preceding one became four years vintage – some distance from historical, really, but antique enough that its battery barely lasted more than an hour and it became responding oddly to fundamental instructions. Like nearly every other computer in the world, the new one is predicated on processing chips made via Intel. As we learnt this week, those chips have essential flaws that make all our non-public facts vulnerable to hacks.

Still, who could be downbeat whilst confronted with Windows’ begin-up screen? In a pleasant way, it suggests which you may want to send a constant flow of records about your pc usage to.

You must already be familiar with data [data: information without context, for example, a list of students with serial numbers, is data. When these figures represent the placement in a 100 meter race, the data becomes an information] and computer misuse [the data stored electronically is easier to access]; with software [software: a general term used to describe an application or program], which may not be reproduced without permission. The consequences leads to Software piracy [piracy: the acquisition, benefit from the use or making changes to copyright material without prior permission]; and hacking, and can lead to data corruption; accidental or deliberate.

Types of Computer Misuses

Misuse of computers and communication can be in different forms:

Hacking

Hacking is when an unauthorized person uses a network [Network: A group of interconnected computers]and an Internet modem [modem: a piece of hardware that connects the computer to the Internet] to access security passwords or other security of data stored on another computer. Hackers sometimes use software hacking tools and often target some sites on the Internet. Their exploitation is not only limited to private networks but also to government and corporate computer networks.

Misuse of data and unauthorized transfer or copy

The term blogger became popular in the late 1990s and the success stories of people in this field led many to consider how to become a professional in blogging. There is a general impression that it is easy to become a pro blogger but the truth of the matter is it is as hard as any effort wanting to earn the decent income. For some people however blogging is a passion and the money that goes with it comes only as secondary.

Just like any endeavor, there are requisites to become a professional blogger. Anybody can be a blogger but to be known in this field, you must consider the following.

You must love to write

shut up

The passion to write must be there, to begin with. It should not be just a spur of the moment desire to go online and create a website. Every blogging website you see that ranks well in search engines has great contents in it. Contents are written words that attract visitors.

Start with your expertise

You must have an expertise or at least experience in what you will be writing about. So many bloggers just write about anything under the sun since it is easy to research information on the internet and rewrite ideas of other people. Although it is also one way to go, it is hard to be recognized as a professional blogger if there is obviously no expertise on the subjects being written.

Study SEO

There are some professional bloggers who made it without really concentrating much on using SEO techniques. They are the elite few who have focused on a niche that happens to be their expertise and easily earned natural traffic to their site. But they are a special class of bloggers who mostly have a strong offline network. To be sure, you have to study at least the basics of SEO to become a professional blogger.

Copying and illegally transferring data quickly and easily online using computers and large storage devices such as hard disk drives [HDD: a device used to store large volumes of data, on a hard disk], memory sticks [memory stick: a thumb-sized portable storage device mainly used for transferring files between computers]and DVDs [Digital Versatile Disc- used to store data, for example, a film]. Personal data, company research and written work, such as novels and textbooks cannot be reproduced without permission of the copyright holder.

Copying and distribution of copyright software, music and film

This also applies to the copying of music and movies to circulate on the Internet without the copyrights [copyright: Indicates the creator of an original piece of work and controller of the publication, distribution, and adaptation] authorization holder. This is a widespread misuse of both computers and the Internet that overlooks the copyrights rules and regulations.

Pornography

A large part of indecent material and pornography is available via the Internet and can be stored in electronic form. There have been several cases of materials that are classified as illegal, or that show illegal acts, found stored on computers, liable to prosecution for possession of these materials.
