Create your own Custom Email Address with Zoho Mail

In one of my previous articles, I provided instructions on how to set-up an email address using a custom domain with Outlook.com. So instead of providing your business email as hbc-contractors@gmail.com, you would instead provide it as sales@hbc-contractors.com. The latter option provides a more “business-professional” image of you and your business. Since the time I wrote that article and now, Microsoft has changed its policy with regards to free hosted email solutions using custom domains. As of April 11, 2014, Microsoft has incorporated the custom email domain solution as a part of it’s Office 365 product. As such, it is no longer free, right now that option costs a minimum of US $4.00 per user per month. I must say that this is a very good price for small to medium businesses who need ...

How Passwords are Cracked: Never Use one Password on All Accounts

One-for-all passwords. Recently I was helping a client configure Outlook 2010 to use 4 email addresses I had earlier created. Those email addresses were created using his custom domain on Outlook.com. Instead of logging in and out 4 times to check each account on outlook.com, I told him it would be easier to use Outlook 2010 which came bundled with his PC. Before we started, I had told him to make a note of the password each email account would use because we would be using them in the set-up process. It was at this point he told me that its "OK" because he uses only one password for all of his on-line accounts. Please note that this someone who is using these email addresses as contact points for his business. Also note that business is handling all payment options through PayPal and yes...

Review of the MK808B Android TV Stick

A while back I wrote an article titled "Turn your TV into a “Smart TV” running Android 4.1". I gave an introduction on how with a cheap $45 device you could bring internet connectivity plus more to your regular TV (provided it has HDMI inputs). That article was written using the knowledge i acquired from reading online blogs and forums. While i was writing that article i was always thinking that i wouldn't be prudent of me to make a  recommendation without trying one for myself. So lets take that first article as the precursor for this one... lets begin! The device I bought was the MK808B along with a Bluetooth mini-keyboard. The specs of the MK808B Android TV stick are as follows:  Dual core Rockchip RK 3066 processor Quad core Mali-400 MP4 GPU 1 GB DDR3 RAM 8 GB ROM HDMI 1...

Google Chromecast – Web Videos on your TV for USD $35

Recently Google introduced the Chromecast - a $35 HDMI dongle that sends online videos from your phone, tablet or Chrome browser to your HDTV. This 2 inch dongle connects to your HDTV via a HDMI port and is powered either by the port itself (if your TV supports it) or a micro-USB cable. After connecting it to your TV there is a fast and simple set up process in which you give the device a name e.g., "Living Room TV". That's it, as there is no user interfaces to learn as it is controlled by the device that sent the video i.e. your Android tablet or iPad. You open the video you want to watch e.g., a YouTube video, and their will be a "Cast" button in the UI, select it and then select "Living Room TV". The video is then sent to your TV.  Now, it should be noted that this idea is nothing n...

How to Use your custom Domain Name with Outlook.com

Normally when you sign up for an online email service such as Outlook.com or Gmail.com, your email address points to the domain name of the email provider. So if you sign up for a Gmail email account your email address is displayed as yourname@gmail.com, or whatever the domain is of your email provider. Normally this is OK for most individuals needs but it is normally thought of as unprofessional for companies to use this method. Think about it, what if an established company such as Pepsi gave their email address as pepsi@gmail.com or contact-pepsi@outlook.com? Now you can say that large companies like Pepsi use their own email servers. This is true, with their budget they can very well afford a data-center with supporting I.T. infrastructure just to handle emails, but this article is not...
