Fact 1.     Assurance Providers help to provide consumer with the security of knowing if the business is trustworthy, there are currently five major ones, BBB, TRUSTe, ICSA, VeriSign, and WebTrust.

Fact 2.     In the long run good ethical standards help promote more trust in online businesses, but they can be more expense to implement and operate. Is not online business a matter of trust?

Should video games be sold to terrorist countries, the processors can be made in to missile guidance systems? The legal and ethical issues of free world trade has become so complex due to the Internet having E-commerce on it. World-Wide E-business is now available to almost anyone who wants to do it, which is making a new frontier for mankind to explore.

Chapter 9 Highlights-3 Facts Learned

 Assignment 7 After reading Chapter  (Webpage design), post 3 facts learned. 

Fact 1. I learned there are three main types of Markup Languages, and they are HTML(Hypertext Markup Language), XML( Extensible Markup Language ), and XHTML(  Extensible Hypertext Markup Language).

Fact 2. There are three types of browser extensions. The first one is called a plug-in, it finds integrated browser software to run a specific files. The second one is called a helper application, it runs software installed on computer. Lastly the third one is called an add-on, it is on the browser and it allows a user to go directly to the website without opening another window.

Fact 3. Web Hosting Services are part of the Webpage implementation. They allow the user to use their server to obtain a domain name, and they store the webpages of the user so that they can be accessed from the Internet. I started a website because JTCC give me an email account with Google. I login and Google asked me if I want to start making a webpage I said yes, and I opened up a template and made a simple website. Google was hosting the site through my school email account. The site was O.K. but I wanted to be able to find it on bing. So I went to and purchased A domain name for $10.00 per year.  Google transferred it and hosted it with 50 email accounts and 77 gigbytes of ram for free. I could go on on about what extras I have added. So if you are interested here the link to my Peace, this Blog was made for my ITE 130 Class at JTCC which is coming to an end. So after this post there will most likely be a change of topic here, unless I get followers who want to know about the Internet.

Chapter 8 Highlights-3 Facts Learned

Assignment 6 After reading Chapter 8 (Wireless Networking), post 3 facts learned.

Fact1. A wireless local area network (WLAN) is the most common type of wireless network, and the 4 most common network standards are 802.11a, 802.11b, 802.11g, and 802.11n.

Fact 2. Wireless mesh networks are used to extend the range of Wi-Fi hot spots. I have just leaned how to use mesh-up in regards to Social Media and it is very powerful there so I imagine it works like 3^3 not 3+3 or 3*3.

Fact 3. Wireless security is very important especially depending on what kind of information is stored on a mobile device or that is being transferred. If I was doing online banking or communicating classified information there would be a reason to have the most secure connection possible, but since I have decided that I will do those things in person I am not worried about it now.However,  I did learn how  take a few simple steps to protect most mobile devices in my domains.
  1. Change default login and password of router.
  2. Change default SSID.
  3. Use MAC addresses.
  4. Turn on MAC filtering.
  5. If using WEP, change Passphrase often.
  6. Make sure all devices are connected before step 7.
  7. Disable the SSID of the router.
  8. Turn it off when not in use for a while.

ITE 130 Assignment 2

     Chapter 2 Emails and Windows Live Mail

     Fact 1. Emails use special protocols or rules in regard to how they are received and sent over the Internet. Which path an email takes over the Internet depends on if it's incoming or outgoing. For outgoing emails it most likely uses SMTP (Simple Mail Transfer Protocol). For incoming emails it most likely uses POP (Post Office Protocol). Also the software program that a computer uses to handle emails is called Mail Client Software or simply an email program.
     Fact 2.  When sending an email to someone from contacts or by typing in there email address or forwarding or replying to one that has already been sent. It is important when using to To, or, Cc, or Bcc to know who to be anonymous with and who not. For more detail on this see Ken's ITE 130 Blog. 
From my own experience my email program Windows Live, updates my contact information daily with new photos, email  addresses and etc. from facebook, linkeden, google, and etc. The trick is to set sharing to friends of friends.

     Fact 3. Viruses, Spam, and Junk Mail, very from terrorism to an annoyance. Viruses can be stopped in most cases with common sense and a good antivirus program. Spam on the other hand isn't so easy, I learn from the book that the MAAWG (Messaging Anti-Abuse Working Group) found out that 80% of  emails were abusive. Because robots send so many emails that they slow down some networks.

In my opinion one day computers are going to stop any data will harm them, and be able to tell the difference between the emails that will help the user .vs. emails that will hurt the user.
