Big Data: The 401 on Hadoop
In the world of big data, Apache Hadoop is becoming a dominant player. In short, Hadoop is a open source data processing platform that helps process unstructured data sets. When the system was first released, few people knew about its potential benefits. However, in the last several years it has gained increasing respect and popularity. In fact, many big name companies now use Hadoop to stay competitive in their respective fields. There are several reasons why Hadoop will likely soon become the major game changer in big data processing. 1. Cost While it was once too expensive for many enterprise businesses to store and analyze big data, prices are dropping. This is largely due to changes Hadoop has made in the system. The cost of big data analysis has gone from $100K per terabyte and $20K for maintenance to a $1200 yearly subscription.

Security Challenges with Denial of Service Attacks

Security Challenges with Denial of Service Attacks
Denial of Service (DoS) and Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks have featured heavily in the tech news of recent years as their ease of delivery makes them a simple tool for those wishing to disrupt a target's online presence. A DoS is initiated when one computer continually sends data, typically as requests, to another computer with the aim of exceeding the target machines resources such as bandwidth, RAM or processing power. A DDoS is when multiple computers join forces, typically controlled by a Botnet, and target an organisations web servers or network. The disruption from a DDoS, however, can affect different organisations in different ways. Some organisations such as banks have seen DDoS attacks prevent their customers from accessing their online banking services. This has obvious implications for consumers and businesses looking to manage their accounts. HSBC suffered a DDoS attack in October 2012 that was attributed to Izz ad-Din al-Qassam Cyber Fighters allegedly as a protest aimed at forcing You Tube to remove the controversial film Innocence of Muslims. The same group has continued its DDoS attacks into January of 2013 against a long list of U.S. banks such as JP Morgan Chase, U.S. Bancorp and Bank of...

Performing Typography While typographers perform this artistic form, graphic designers, comic book artists, clerical workers, compositors, art directors and graffiti artists also perform typography. Before the Digital Age began, typography was considered a specialized occupation. The Digital Age brought typography to the attention of this generation’s visual designers. Thanks to the Digital Age, just about anyone can now be a typographer. Desktop Publishing Typography is used in desktop publishing and first began when the printing press was invented.
