Online Survey Software

Way back college years, I could still remember, one of our costumer service research survey conducted for one of the local food products in Davao City. It was actually not my major research project but for my college close friends and dorm-mates. They were Bachelor of Science in Food Technology students, hence a research survey on food qualities and services were done. But the work was just one of the requirements in our Arts and Humanities subjects.

Manual Research Survey

What we did that time was we personally went to one of the restaurants located near our school. We were already there five minutes before the opening of the restaurant for us to be able to catch almost all of the costumers from the time they opened the food shoppe until it closes, some time around 9 o’clock in the evening. We were giving small pieces of papers containing survey questions on it like the quality of the foods, costumer services and relationship, food shoppe settings and more and each costumers will just check the corresponding boxes of their preferences.

After doing such manual collection of survey materials for three consecutive weeks, we then collated all of the data and still manually input all of those in a spreadsheet. Everything that time were all manually done which took us a bit hanged up in beating the deadline. But today, online survey software are made available already. Things are getting much easier and simpler compared to what we have done with this latest advancement in technology we are having now. Before, we were analyzing the data we collected by ourselves. The spreadsheet, where we tabulated the data, was just used for easy readability and categorization of each survey answers. Survey software that are now available online not just merely provide the simplest way to gather data but it also analyzes data. Its sophisticated benefits in conducting research survey is very convenient and applicable to any professional groups. Even students, how I wish such survey software was already been introduced to us before, could really get the most benefits especially when time constrain.

Google Translation Tool for Android

Google has recently release the tweaked Google Translation with Voice Tool for Android OS.

This is not the first time that Google has done for Android users. The Google translate mobile application was actually launched last year, however, in this time around, more features for Android were added. Read more on Google Tweaks Android Translation Tool.

For all we know, translation applications and tools for mobile users are very important for better communication and understanding of people around the globe.

But for more precise, accurate professional translation for documents and other papers, translation companies can handle those staff especially those that computer software and tools can not do. In fact, there are many translation company that offer a very affordable translation services. There’s nothing to worry also about the quality of work because they are also proven best. Most translation companies translate office documents, thesis papers for school requirements and many other stuff from English language to other languages and vice versa.

Out of Stocks

I am supposed to print some documents tonight, however, the first three pages of my outputs were looking very pale that each writings on the papers are hard to read. I just didn’t noticed then that my printer inks are empty already. The worst thing then, it’s almost midnight here already and I can’t go out to buy for new printer ink cartridges or even to look for printer inks refilling stations.

Simply saying, I am out of stocks of printer inks.

I really didn’t expect this to happen today because I just newly bought my printer, perhaps, a few weeks ago. I was printing a number of documents for school in the past weeks, though, but I still confident enough that this ain’t empty yet.

But since it is showing tonight obvious almost-transparent printed documents, the cartridges are really empty which I need to replace as soon as possible.

Chrome Remote Desktop Beta Version Released

The Chrome Remote Desktop Beta Version was actually released last October 7, 2011.

Chrome Remote Desktop Beta Version

However, up until now, I haven’t tried it for my desktop computer. Obviously, it is because I am only having one computer set here. The chrome remote desktop beta version is best fitted to computer networks – those having several computers in a network.

Speaking of desktops, my sister is planning to buy herself a new computer desktop. She wants to have an i series-operated one just like mine. But mine here is yet an i3. It ain’t bad at all, for as long as my computer is working fast that could go and swing with my online needs.

Microsoft Faces Legal Issues After Tracking Mobile Phone Users

When fronting the US Congress in May regarding the tracking of mobile phone users by manufacturers and software providers, a Washington (US) based company said that the tracking of a user’s location helped in delivering improved experiences for users. It told congress that Microsoft collected a limited amount of information. This was being done in order to be able to provide better experiences by determining the location of devices carrying their software. It was emphasised at the time however that this was always done with the absolute consent of the user. Congress was told that the gathering of this type of information was never done with the intention of finding out where any specific unit was going or where it had come from. Even the best mobile phones had been used for this purpose.

No Ulterior Motive Congress Told

It was stated at the same time that such information was handled responsibly, and the result of having a location based feature on a mobile phone was a useful tool for the user to have at his or her disposal. Microsoft never intended to put together any database of information that would end up facilitating any other party to track any mobile phone user, Congress was told.

Despite these assurances Microsoft has since been issued with a lawsuit claiming it had continued to track users’ whereabouts even after users opted out of having such a feature installed on their mobile phones. It has been claimed that the best mobile phones, including those containing  Windows Phone 7, and smart phones, were used by Microsoft to unknowingly track users whenever they used their mobile phone camera. This latest lawsuit, which has been filed through a Seattle court, is claiming that Microsoft continued with their tracking activity following the users closing their location tracking feature. This latest lawsuit claims that Microsoft’s earlier statement to Congress saying such data was only collected with a user’s knowledge and permission was false.

 

Complainant Claims Best Mobile Phones Involved

The lawsuit, filed by Rebecca Cousineau, alleges that the data Microsoft sends back to the company involves the coordinates of a user’s whereabouts whenever the camera is activated. It states that the best mobile phones are involved, including smart phones with Windows Phone 7 software installed which includes Samsung Omnia 7 and HTC 7 Mozart.

Previous concern has arisen regarding location privacy involving Google and Apple. This had resulted in both those companies including Microsoft and Nokia having to appear before the US Congress to explain their policies. This earlier alert came about after researchers found such software installed in the best mobile phones such as iPhones. Similar software was then found to exist in Google Android mobile phones but they satisfied Congress that they had received users’ approval to use the location software.

Thursday Night is Poker Night

It’s Thursday once again. Most commonly, people gotten more excited for Fridays to come. However, in my case, this week, I love Thursday more than Friday because I don’t have any academic obligations tonight. Tonight will be my stress-free night from school stuff. As usual, school stuff-free nights are almost always intended for online enjoyments, not to mention my preplanned an hour or two of poker online.

Aside from blogging, playing online games are what I used to do. And as what I always been saying in my previous posts, playing online has been part already of my relaxing and de-stressing stuff to complete especially during every after exam weeks.

Tonight, I might be trying out Texas holdem poker game. I haven’t tried this one yet before and I found this one exciting to try out. But of course, I won’t be gambling. I will just make use of the free online poker games. This is, actually, one of the advantages for newbie online gamers since it is free and definitely, no cash used but the player could practice playing.

Anybody would want to play online games with me tonight?
