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 […]

Google: Hiding The Past

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on May 12, 2014 in News & Opinion |

How much of a person’s past is it possible to find when searching on the Internet? This is a question which has plagued many people over the last few years: the idea that anything which appears on the Internet is there forever and will haunt in years to come. In a case before the European […]

Internet: What’s In A Name?

Have you ever done a Google search on your name? Or used another search engine to see what’s listed about you on the Internet? If you haven’t, then perhaps you should, it is amazing the facts and figures which appear, even when you imagine that many things are either well hidden or simply no longer […]

Google Follows Suit

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on January 10, 2014 in Internet |

Some people seem to be up in arms about a new Google update for their mail system. Why is hard to tell, since everything that this update offers has been implemented elsewhere already and, to be honest, is a normal part of everyday life, not just on the Internet or with mail. Imagine that you […]

Don’t Trust Stats!

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on December 12, 2013 in Internet |

For some reason, which is very annoying, Alexa declines my desire to show stats for US visitors. This means that my rating on Sverve (for example) is considerably lower than it should be. Now, I am not really a stats person, if the website works and I have enough feedback to my occasional writings, I […]

Data. Little pieces of information placed together to gain an insight into a specific something. It might be movements, finances, lives, spying, terrorism, sales, whatever you care to think of. Our lives are controlled by a mass of data which we – and others – gather constantly, whether we wish them, or us, to or […]

Battling Google

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on October 8, 2013 in Internet |

I’ve got a bit of a beef with Google Plus at the moment – not enough to make me leave them as I have done with Facebook, but a beef nonetheless. The problem is their toolbars. At the moment, when I log in normally I am taken to my Home page and can see all […]

Reality Check: Installing Phone Apps

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on August 21, 2013 in Internet |

If you’re going to do it, someone will probably say, do it the quick way and save time. I’m told that this used to be ‘do it properly’, but times change and everyone is out for the quick fix, the speedy way, the fastest means of getting from A to B with no hassle or […]
