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 […]

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?

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on January 12, 2014 in Internet |

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 […]
