The Problem With Banning Fake News

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on November 15, 2016 in News & Opinion |

After a certain amount of pressure from outside, it looks as if Facebook might consider reacting to the number of fake news stories propagated on its servers, some of which are claimed to have influenced the recent presidential election in the United States. Google has also indicated that such an action might follow from their […]

Did Google Catch You Out?

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on April 2, 2016 in Internet |

In case you didn’t notice it, yesterday was April 1, the notorious day of Fools and Fun. Well, unless you are Anne Coulter, who believes that the pranks idea should be sent back to France, where it possibly originated, along with the guillotine and metric system, both of which are continually used in the United […]

Transport: The Computer Over The Human

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on March 2, 2016 in Internet |

I can see the thinking behind this Tweet from the Financial Times: a car driven by a computer is not going to be distracted, not by a phone, by the kids, by a rabbit running across the road. A car driven by a computer is going to drive in the right direction, at the right […]

Image Searches: Google Against Bing

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on January 3, 2016 in Internet |

There is an old – in Internet terms – saying: Google is your friend. It refers to the chances of anyone being able to find anything that they need on the Google search engine and exists for very good reasons: you can find anything you’re looking for by using the Google search engine. It is […]

Windows 10 / Microsoft: Killing The Web

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on September 9, 2015 in Internet |

As I write this a second tab on my Firefox browser is running, trying to connect to Mozilla. It has been trying for over fifteen minutes – no timeout, no failure to connect, no server not found. It is simply running. The same goes with my attempts to get through the Get Firefox site, to […]

Windows 10 And Strange Connections

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on September 3, 2015 in Internet |

It is an ongoing struggle to work through the new Windows 10, one filled with stress and unnecessary extra work. No matter how you look at it, there are problems, and next to no explanations or guidelines to make Windows 10 work as it should. In many ways I wish that I had remained with […]

The Downside Of Linking

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on April 24, 2015 in Internet |

It seems almost as if there has been a mad rush to correct something which could easily have been avoided: an older change to the algorithm Google uses to assess rankings seems to have caught some web sites off their guard. Over the last few weeks I’ve been hit with several requests to go back […]

Is Yahoo Killing Flickr?

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on March 26, 2015 in Internet |

I go visit Flickr every day, not just to see whether other people have shown any interest in my photographers, more to see what other photographers have posted. There are many quite exceptional photographers who use the Yahoo service, and have been using it for many years. Here I can gain inspiration as much as […]

Another Password Hackathon

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on September 11, 2014 in Internet |

It seems as if hardly a week goes by without another report of a website being hacked, of passwords, credit card details, social security numbers, selfies, everything personal becoming available to the masses thanks to the unscrupulous. The latest to be hit is that Internet giant of security, who tend to keep their own security […]

Don’t Follow: I’m Lost Too!

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on June 26, 2014 in Internet |

I’m not really a social networks animal. I mean, it is all well and good and there is plenty on offer, but I don’t feel the buzz some apparently get every time they log in to one of the many, many social media sites and bring their life story up to date. Yes, I do […]
