The bedrooms See that your vacation home has quality, ample bedding: at least two sets of high-quality sheets for each bed, pillows with pillow protectors, extra blankets, and mattress pads. Also provide an alarm clock and reading lamp on a bedside table in each bedroom. The living Area Make sure your living area has comfortable seating for at least the number of people that you sleep and a TV large enough for guests to watch from across the room. Provide at least basic cable, a DVD player, and cards and board games for rainy days. The bathrooms Guests expect the bathrooms to best spotless and demand quality towels. At a minimum, provide:

■ 2 bath towels per guest ■ 2 hand towels per guest

■ 4 washcloths per guest ■ 1 hair dryer

The extras When equipping your vacation rental property, be aware of why guests want to stay in a vacation home instead of a hotel. Consider providing these items:

■ high-speed Internet ■ books, games, videos

■ first aid kit ■ crib

Other amenities that may draw in guests include:

■ video game systems ■ pool tables

■ espresso machines ■ beach or snow gear

Your vacation home is likely already furnished and decorated. However, when you begin renting, it’s important to find a balance between your convenience and your guests’ comfort. First, walk through your vacation home and remove any valuable or irreplaceable items. Then create a lockable closet for storing the personal affects and supplies you want to have on hand. Lastly, make sure the space throughout your home is relatively free of clutter.

The Kitchen When it comes to the kitchen, guests appreciate convenience. Your kitchen should be equipped with enough plates, glasses, and flatware for double the number of people that you sleep. Guests also appreciate conveniences like a coffee pot, adequate cooking gear, and a large dining room table.

Check the current zoning status of the area in which your vacation home resides and be sure to learn about any proposed changes that may affect it. Then, research the status of short-term rentals in your city or county by searching past newspapers for articles about your market. Consider contacting other owners currently renting in your local area to learn more.Homeowners Association Rules In addition to your local municipalities, check with the homeowners association about rules regarding vacation rentals within your complex or subdivision.

3D Printing and Why It Is the Next Big Thing

Posted in Softwares  by urgetek
November 10th, 2013

If you are not aware of 3D printing or what it is, then you need to start paying attention now, as many industry experts are calling it the next big thing. If you do not know what 3D printing is, do not worry, however, as the aim of this article is to give you some inside knowledge as to what 3D printing is and why it is going to be such a big deal in the very near future.

3D Printing

The process of 3D printing has been around for a while; however it is only recently that it has become something that anyone can take advantage of. Stores that normally sell standard ink jet printers have also started to stock 3D printers. But what is 3D printing exactly?

3D printing is exactly that – the ability to print in 3D. Using a special kind of plastic, the printers are able to create 3D objects after receiving the dimensions and relevant details from a computer. Though limited in terms of the size of objects they can print at the moment, it won’t be long until people are able to print large items.

Is 3D Printing a Good Thing?

On the surface, 3D printing seems like an amazing idea. Think about it, with a 3D printer people will be able to print out shoes for example and try them on before they buy them. Kids will be able to print out cars and action figures after buying the blueprints on the internet – or even after having created them using their creativity.

There is also a dark side to 3D printing, however. A few select individuals, for example, have been using the technology to print weapons and guns that you would normally need to have a licence for.

In addition to this, the very same individuals are taking the blueprints they used to make these weapons and are posting them onto the internet so that anyone can have access to them and use them to create their very own weapons should they want to. This is, of course, a dangerous notion since it is now no longer the case that individuals need to be approved to possess a weapon, such as a machine gun, when they can just print one at home.

Is 3D Printing Expensive?

As 3D printing is a relatively new technology, buying one of the printers to keep in your home can be quite expensive and it may not be something that you want to do. If you cannot afford a 3D printer, however, there are places that will allow you to use their 3D printers. If you want to see the technology in action, these stores can be a great way for you to get an introduction to the concept without having to break the bank. For example, you could use a company like lasercutworks to help you get an introduction to the world of 3D printing. Taking the time to check out 3D printing could help you get ahead of the curve and figure out creative ways you can use the technology.

The security of data is of paramount importance

Posted in Softwares  by urgetek
March 20th, 2013

One of the biggest threats in terms of data transmission is the internet. This is a fact. The internet for all of its benefits, of which there are many, also offers numerous potential pitfalls. The problem lies in the fact that the web is a conglomeration of numerous systems all loosely tied together with various protocols utilised which in some ways can be the inherent cause of the failings of the net. Although the web offers the ability to access information and keep in contact in various forms, the fact remains that the security aspect of the net poses problems to companies who need to share sensitive information such as client details.
The media is frequently disclosing stories of consumer data being acquired and accessed by third parties and utilised for criminal activity, which is the inherent problem. However, there is a solution, which is to utilise a third party software solution which offers a level of security which gives peace of mind. Secure FTP software is available which in essence automates the complete process, and thereby delivers an unrivalled level of security by taking out potential problem areas, such as human intervention.

With the increased amounts of personal data being requested by sites now, it is perhaps understandable that many people are concerned when asked to enter sensitive data, such as names, addresses, dates of birth and credit card or payment information. Terms such as identity fraud have become a frequent headline and pose such a risk that many companies now have dedicated teams who investigate such problems.

The key to any security issue is to utilise a tried and tested method which delivers a secure and reliable system. Secured managed file transfer software offers this and more, by utilising specific protocols that provide enhanced security. This form of software as its name implies is generally utilised which large packets of data are transmitted between several areas such as branches of a company or subsidiaries, for company use. The software operates by completely automating the process thereby eliminating any potential problem that could occur by virtue of human intervention.

For the internet to become a truly universal and useful medium, the fact remains that the security element of the net needs to be addressed to ensure a level of protection that provides peace of mind.

iPhone Trade-In Program

Posted in I Phones  by urgetek
June 13th, 2013

Apple is getting an iPhone trade-in program underway, which would allow individuals with older models, such as the iPhone 4 or 4S to turn in their existing device in store and get a credit that could be used to upgrade to the newer iPhone 5. While this would make it the first time that Apple would allow trade-ins at its retail locations, the idea behind it isn’t 100% new.

In August of 2012, the company started the Apple Recycling Program, which allows individuals to send in an iPhone, iPad or a computer (Mac or PC), so that it can be recycled or refurbished. If the device still had some monetary value, such as in the case of a working iPhone 4S in good condition, Apple would apply this value to a gift card, which could be used to make purchases in an Apple Store or at the Apple Online Store. The program is run by Apple together with PowerON Service, Inc. a leader in the recycling of information technology equipment. However, this program requires the customer to ship the product to PowerON and wait until Apple sends out the gift card.

Trade-in programs for electronic devices, including smartphones, are already being offered nationwide by several telecommunications companies and retailers. Typically, they involve the customer bringing a used electronic device and getting store credit for it. The device is then sent to a company that specializes in refurbishing electronics and either used for parts or re-sold as a refurbished product. Some smaller retailers also offer cash for used smartphones and tablets.

Apple is now going to partner up with Brightstar Corp., a distributor of mobile devices that handles trade-in programs for numerous phone carriers, like T-Mobile and AT&T. By offering the trade-in program, Apple is hoping that enough customers will use it as an incentive to upgrade their current device to the iPhone 5. Recently, the company has had to deal with a dropping share price and lower than expected sales of the iPhone 5. As customers would now be able to get a rebate off the price of a new smartphone, the company seems to hope that more iPhone users will decide to upgrade now, even if their previous device is still working very well.

The popularity of trade-in programs is growing among American consumers. In 2011, only 11% of consumers that purchased a smartphone would use a trade-in program of any kind. The estimated number for 2013 is 20%.

The iPhone is a product that has taken advantage of advancements in Internet technology to deliver the online world to a growing number of mobile phone users. The first iPhone would only support EDGE. This changed with the arrival of the iPhone 3G, which supported faster 3G wireless Internet. Finally, the current iPhone 5 is compatible with LTE networks, allowing even faster mobile Internet browsing, which makes it perfect for some more bandwidth-intensive applications, such as watching streaming videos.

There is some speculation that the new trade-in program is part of a new effort made by Apple to target emerging markets. Smartphone use is growing in the developing world, however Apple’s market share is lower due to the fact that fewer people can afford to buy a new iPhone. Apple could take used iPhone 4 and 4S smartphones from the US, refurbish them and sell them at a lower price in other parts of the world, in order to get a better market share. Currently, Android devices are a lot more popular in the developing world, due to the availability of lower-priced smartphones that run on the Android platform.

Discretion is extremely important when it comes to Shredding of Important Document

Posted in Softwares  by urgetek
March 25th, 2013

Data confidentiality and security are the most essential aspects of today’s business world. Data, even if it is old, has its value in the market and when it comes to competition, such historical data in the wrong hands can turn out to be quite dangerous. Therefore, when it comes to disposal of such important documents, one must contact professionals with experience in the field of shredding documents in a secure manner. Many corporations opt for such professional services in order to dispose of their confidential records which are of no longer use for the organization but might turn out to be highly lucrative for a rival corporation.

Market comparison or historical profit analysis, business strategy for a particular deal or even old organizational policies can turn out to be useless for a particular corporation. However, the very same information might turn out to be a great resource for the competition or even damaging for the corporation if such documents fall in wrong hands. Storing such records for very long or setting up an infrastructure for such storage for long term can turn out to be expensive and even unsafe. Regulating access for particular individuals or maintenance of such document storage can turn out to be a complicated affair.

In order to bypass such complications of storage and maintenance of documents which are of no potential use to the organization, it is important to dispose of these records in a professional manner. Document disposal is no longer limited to paper documents any more. Organizations today store data in digital as well as paper format. Disposal of data stored in digital media is even more difficult than disposal of data on paper document. Simply deleting files from a hard drive or a tape is not the perfect way of getting rid of such sensitive data.

In order to get rid of sensitive and important data on digital media, professionals undertake special measures. Special equipments and knowledge is necessary in order to delete data from digital media in a permanent fashion. One might say, that in order to get rid of paper documents one can simply install a machine in their premises which will shred the paper or strip the digital media of all its contents. However, setting up such equipments can cost a huge fortune. Moreover, one must employ a team of technical professionals to complete such tasks which too would be a huge expenditure.

Moreover, employing a team of technical professionals and buying the necessary equipments are not the only essential items which one requires for disposal of sensitive data. If an organization sets up such a department, they must ensure that the team of professionals or the workforce handling the sensitive data should be discreet enough to keep the contents of the documents a secret. Therefore, it is always important to opt for professional help when it comes to shredding of sensitive data. The organization providing such disposal services will have the responsibility of discretion as part of their service contract and therefore would be the safe and secure manner of disposal of sensitive data.
