  • Ancient Mayan Artifacts in the United States Today

    If you paid any sort of attention in your World History classes in school, you would remember that the Ancient Mayans were a
    civilization in modern day Mexico. Well, you might not have even had to have paid attention in your classes to remember that
    bit of history.

    However, you may find it ironic that many Mayan artifacts that have been recovered from the ancient civilization’s land is
    now for display in the United States. Say what? Yes, many are here in the United States with others on display throughout
    the world in places you would never have imagined.

    Why? Well, the answer is simple really: educational purposes. Many people learn about the Ancient Mayan civilization in
    school but cannot go to Mexico to visit the ruins for themselves. Therefore, the powers that be decided that sending ancient
    artifacts on a tour of the United States was a great idea.

    It can be, as long as the artifacts are handled nicely and are not damaged. It does gives children and others a chance to
    see the artifacts from the land they have only read about and gives them a true visual to go along with their course studies.

    Mayan artifacts have been on display in different locations throughout the United States for several years now and some are
    even on permanent display in some prominent museums. Opponents of these actions wonder why it makes sense to put something
    on display that did not even happen in America, but in Mexico. They do not understand the idealism behind it.

    However, there is no idealism behind it. Exhibits of all types have traveled throughout the world for years without trouble
    and it brings history to the people. We want to educate others and let the children become global citizens. If they do not
    have the money to travel, this gives them they way they can see it for themselves, up close and personal.

    As long as the education exhibits are being cared for properly, the touring exhibits are a great educational piece that
    should continue to travel around for years to come. The United States should also look in to make traveling exhibits of
    some of our finest documents like the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution. That way people throughout the
    country and world can see it without having to take a trip to Washington D.C. Many people, even people in the United States,
    would love to see these things up close but cannot afford a trip to do so. Who knows, it may even inspire some children to
    pursue political careers. That would definitely make it worth it.

    The educational benefit of these artifacts far outweigh any sort of problems that they bring along with them. It is a great
    way for kids to learn, for adults to share and for researchers to show off their work. It is a win-win situation for all
    where people learn more than the thought they could.

  • Interesting Native American Artifacts

    To many Americans and scientists, Native American artifacts are a window into the past of our amazing country.

    They were the first people on this land and developed amazing weaponry and skills that we modeled our modern day weapons
    after. They developed different tools and methods for doing things that we still use in our everyday lives hundreds of years

    Another reason the Native American artifacts resonate so strongly with us is because they left behind so many different types
    of interesting artifacts that we stare at in wonder today. Arrowheads, bows and arrows and artwork are example of thing they
    have left behind that we still look at today.

    However, people continue to be infatuated with the Native American culture because there are still Native American people
    alive today, unlike other ancient civilizations where the people have been dead for thousands of years. We still see how they
    practice their ancient traditions while adapting to modern life. We will most likely never figure out their rituals but we
    will continue to study the artifacts they left behind in an attempt to understand a little big about their culture and

    There are many Native American reservations in the world today that still practice the rituals of their ancestors and still
    boast tons of artifacts that have yet to be discovered. Native Americans want to preserve their reservations as a testament
    to their ancestors and to try and keep some semblance of the past within their grasp, which is very commendable by any standard.
    Other cultures could learn from the kinship that Native Americans have with one another along with their families and ancient
    ancestors and Gods that they look to for guidance.

    If Native American history interests you, there are many classes you can take to learn about their artifacts that they left
    behind along with their ancient practices and rituals that are still practiced today. That way you can spend your days
    studying that civilization and the people and hopefully give the world more ideas and insight into the past.

    The study of ancient civilizations is interesting and fun to do. You learn a little bit about the ancient past and feel
    somewhat connect to it when looking at the artifacts from the time period. It helps you understand how we have evolved over
    the past several thousand years and can make you wonder how we will continue to evolve as time goes on. What do you think
    people will say about us in a million years? Will they be as interested in us as we are with ancient cultures like the
    Native American people? No one knows for sure, but the best guess is that yes, they will be.
    Just think of what it would be like if people see our computers, cell phone and cars and wonder exactly what we were thinking when these were developed and
    why we decided to leave these for future generations to study. Funny thought, isn’t it?

  • Own Your Very Own Titanic Artifacts

    It is certainly hard to believe that nearly one hundred years has passed since the Titanic sunk in the icy Atlantic waters.
    The story of that ship and the fateful events that led up to the tragic ending still strike a chord with people to this day.
    Scientists and Titanic buffs continue to plan voyages down to the wreckage of the Titanic to see it in all of its eerie glory
    and also find more sunken treasures that have gone down with it.

    Titanic and the artifacts it left behind continue to entrance people to this day. The movie Titanic is one of the biggest
    grossing movies of all time and people still want to remember those who died on that fateful day each year when the
    anniversary rolls around.

    Why are people so entranced by this story? Because it was the ship that was never supposed to sink. When it did, the world
    felt the pain of the people who lost their lives because of an over confident claim that obviously was not true. The Titanic
    and its story conjures up a weird love story that people still are interested in to this day.

    Other people are more interested in the Titanic for other reasons. There are millions of dollars of jewels that are rumored
    to still be down there and have not been recovered. The money loving artifact hounds would love to get their hands on these
    items because it would allow them to boast the fact that they have the famous lost items and they could sell them to
    collectors and make a huge profit.

    People can even purchase their very own artifacts from the Titanic today. There are several companies and web sites that
    purportedly sell pieces from the Titanic ship or even items that were recovered from the wreckage. The people who seek out
    these artifacts are clearly infatuated with the story behind the Titanic and would like to have a piece of it all to

    Be careful when decided to purchase a Titanic artifact. How do you really know that what you are buying is really from the
    Titanic? You can’t know for sure and it is better off that you just admire and study the story from afar rather than letting
    someone take your hard earning money because they claim to have something of value that they will sell to you for several
    hundred dollars a pop.

    Really, what would you do with an artifact from the Titanic? No one will really enjoy it but you. And is it really worth
    spending your hard earned cash on that? Maybe you think it is, but what happens if you find out that it is not really an
    artifact from the Titanic and instead a piece of car from the bottom of a lake?

    Instead, continue to research more into the story of the Titanic and support your hobby in that way. Save your dollars and
    cents for something that is more worthy of your dollars, like a charitable cause.

  • Is That for Real? Fake Artifacts and the Truth

    People love to collect things: especially artifacts and other collectibles that they deem to either have personal or monetary
    value. Unfortunately, with the growth of this popular pastime comes the people who are out to take advantage of these people
    who wish to purchase artifacts for their collections.

    These crooks only want to defraud the innocent people of their money while preying on their desire to have something unique
    and original. Until these people are all caught, it will continue. However, the sad fact is that there will continue to be
    sideways crooks that will prey on unsuspecting people until the end of time.

    So, if you are a collector, take note. If you are looking to purchase any sort of collectable from someone who claims to
    have something original, make sure you take the time to research the claim before you shell out your hard earned cash.

    How can you be prepared to avoid crooks? Well, it surely is not easy, but here are a few steps you can follow to try to
    protect yourself,  your interests and most of all, your cash:

    * Only buy from a reputable antiques or collectables dealer. These people will have references and contacts in the industry
      that will prove that they have the goods
    * Never buy from someone who approaches you about buying something unique or rare. Most times these people are trying to
      take advantage of your interest. Instead, only buy things you have had the time to research in advance.
    * Go with your gut, if you look at something and it seems too good to be true, it of course probably is just that.
    * Do not let your excitement get in the way of your good judgment. You may be excited at the prospect of purchasing a
      unique artifact, but do not let that cloud your good judgment and make sure you research your purchase before buying,
      by confirming on historical records, etc.
    * Develop relationships with your dealers and buyers. That way you will build trust and you can be assured that you will
      be able to trust these people and know that what they are saying is the truth.

    There may come a time when you do get bilked out of your cash and end up losing some of it due to a bad business deal. Do
    not dwell on that, it can happen to even the savviest of collectors. Instead, brush it off to a hard lesson learned and
    then get up and try again. You will no doubt have the opportunity to purchase many find artifacts and collectables in 
    your life. Some will be amazing, some not so much. In the end you will have a great collection of artifacts that will make
    you proud to show off to your friends and family. It will take some time to assemble this amazing collection, but once you
    do, you will be amazed at the satisfaction you get from it.

    Interesting Egyptian Artifacts!

  • Interesting Egyptian Artifacts!

    To many history buffs and scientists, nothing says artifacts and history better than the study of the Ancient Egyptians.
    Ancient Egyptians were an incredibly advanced civilization that left behind amazing artifacts that we still study thousands
    of years later. They developed different tools and methods for doing things that we still use in our everyday society
    thousands of years later. That is one of the reasons why they still fascinate us.

    Another reason the Egyptians fascinate us is because they left behind so many different types of interesting artifacts that
    we stare at in wonder today. The pyramids, the Sphinx and mummified tombs are examples of that and we still study to this

    Other examples of interesting Egyptian artifacts include devices that look oddly like modern day airplanes, tools and
    mechanisms that look similar to what we use today and jewels that rival anything we can create in this day in age.
    However, people continue to be infactuated with in the interesting Ancient Egyptians because they mystify us so much. We
    do not understand why they did what they did and we have spent years trying to figure it out.We will most likely never
    figure out why or how they knew what to do but we will continue to study the artifacts they left behind in an attempt to
    understand a little big about their culture and background.

    If you are a true history and artifact buff, your dream vacation would be visit the pyramids in Egypt and seeing these
    things up close and personal for yourself. It would be like a religious experience and be unlike anything you could
    expect or hope to see back here in the United States.

    Or, if it interests you that much, you can go to school to learn more about the Ancient Egyptians and their artifacts that
    they left behind. That way you can spend your days studying that civilization and hopefully give the world more ideas and
    insight into the past.

    The study of ancient civilizations is interesting and fun to do. You learn a little bit about the ancient past and feel
    somewhat connect to it when looking at the artifacts from the time period. It helps you understand how we have evolved over
    the past several thousand years and can make you wonder how we will continue to evolve as time goes on. What do you think
    people will say about us in a million years? Will they be as interested in us as we are with the Ancient Egyptians? Who
    knows, but my best guess is more than likely, yes.

    Just think of what it would be like if people see our computers, cell phone and cars and wonder exactly what we were
    thinking when these were developed and why we decided to leave these for future generations to study. Funny thought, isn’t
    it? I bet the Ancient Egyptians would feel the same way if they were alive today to see how interested we are in them.

    Dinosaur Artifacts - Are They Still Relevant Today?

  • Dinosaur Artifacts - Are They Still Relevant Today?

    Dinosaur artifacts have piqued the interest of the world since they were first discovered. Who doesn’t remember seeing the
    huge skeleton of the monstrous T-Rex and not get scared at its intimidating glare? Of course, we all do.

    Museums still display dinosaur bones prominently in their hallways to show what they looked like, how they acted and what
    they were capable of doing to other animals. Kids continue to visit these museums and become entranced by the skeletons that
    tower about them.However, with the continued advancements in science and technology, do we really need the dinosaur
    artifacts anymore?
    We have learned the majority of the facts we need to learn from these creatures and we probably will not find out anything
    else that we do not already know. But yes, dinosaur artifacts will always play a huge role in our society because we have
    looked to these artifacts for years to understand what prehistoric times were like and what can happen when an environment
    changes rapidly, a valid concern in today’s eco-conscious mind.

    We should also always have dinosaur artifacts on display because children everywhere should learn about what dinosaurs and
    their bones were all about. If we did not have the dinosaur bones on display, we would not have a good way to explain that
    to children.

    Sure, advances in technology can give us computer generated picture of what dinosaurs looked and acted like back millions
    of years ago. We can also watch movies that show man-eating dinosaurs coming to life. However, there is truly nothing like
    seeing and touching a dinosaur bone for the first time. The experience is like none other and no child should ever be
    without htat experience.

    Scientists and researchers should also continue to search for dinosaur bones for the foreseeable future. Why? Because we do
    not truly know what is out there and we could find ancient dinosaur artifacts someday that will change everything we know
    about dinosaurs and the artifacts we have now will truly play a part in bridging the gap between what we think is the
    reality and what really is the reality.

    To top it off, bone artifacts are simply cool to look at and touch with your fingers and hands. You are holding a piece of
    history when you touch a bone and no other feeling is quite like it. Most people get shivers up and down their spines when
    they touch dinosaur bones, it is a feeling like none other and it helps connect the past to the present.

    It is safe to say that dinosaurs and the artifacts they left behind after extinction will always have a huge place in
    science, no matter what type of technology is developed in the future. We will always have a need to understand the past
    to really and truly understand our future and dinosaur artifacts will help bridge that gap for this and future generations
    to come.

    Are Records, Cassettes and CDs Just Artifacts Now?

  • Are Records, Cassettes and CDs Just Artifacts Now?

    Every few years, an advance in technology comes along that renders the previous technology worthless. It has happened countless
    times. First the Steam Engine came along and was the mode of transportation for millions of people. Then, cars and airplanes
    came along and fewer and fewer people chose to travel by train.

    Later on, the telegraph came along and was a relatively quick and easy way for people to communicate over long distances.
    Then the telephone was developed and no one had use for the telegraph anymore.
    Same with VCRs. Every family in America had a VCR and then DVDs and DVD players came along and make it pointless to have a
    VCR that played VHS tapes.

    Well, it has happened again. The mp3 player came out in the late 1990’s and has since become the primary way that music
    enthusiasts listen to their music. Records were the big deal for a long time, and then came along 8-track tapes, cassettes
    and finally compact discs were all of the rage before mp3 players came along. Now, people are primarily downloading their
    music from online music retailers instead of purchasing compact discs or tapes in stores.

    However, like with new technology, mp3 players continue to outshine any other form of music storage. Mp3 players play music
    seamlessly and do not skip like CD players and cannot scratch like records or break apart like cassettes. So yes, overall,
    records, cassettes and CDs are simply artifacts in the music world and more and more people will continue to convert to
    mp3 players until it is the only way that people get their music. Some people still collect records and many companies
    still release records and tapes but they are really hard to find, just like a good artifact.

    What will be the next type of technology that will turn in to artifacts when something else comes along? Well, for
    starters, traditional commercials will be artifacts of the past as the TiVO continues to grow in popularity. Regular
    televisions will become artifacts as people move to flat screen digital sets. More than likely, DVDs will eventually move
    into the artifact category when some other type of movie device is adopted by the general public.

    It is the natural evolution of society and the world. Yes, we can mourn the loss of the records and tapes, but we know that
    we have mp3s which rival everything else in quality and delivery ease. We can embrace the past and remember yesterday with
    tears in our eyes, but the fact of the matter is, we need to evolve to continue to make new and exciting products that we
    want to buy and be a part of. We need that in our consumption-obsessed culture.

    So say good bye to the record, the cassette and the compact disc. They are all artifacts now. Say hello to the future of
    music with a good set of tunes and a good mp3 player.

  • Family Artifacts: Gateways to the Past

    There is a famous saying that says you must understand the past to know where you are going in the future. This is certainly
    true when you think about your past and what that will mean for you and your future.

    If you take a look at your family’s artifacts, heirlooms and photos, you will find a huge history in your family that you
    were not aware of previously. This past will clue you in to a number of things, including what your great-grandparents,
    grandparents and parents were like in their younger days to what types of fashions they wore and what they enjoyed doing.

    Or, studying family artifacts and records can clue you in to the history of the health of your family and give you an
    opportunity to understand what types of illnesses are common in your family and what you should be on the lookout for when
    you visit your doctor.

    Studying family artifacts will also help you piece together the history of your family. Where did your family immigrate
    from? Most likely, artifacts that your family still has will give insight to the lives the family led in their old country
    and give an idea of why they decided that risking it all and coming to America was the best choice for them.

    You could most likely spend hours looking at old records, artifacts and photos. It takes you back to a time that you were
    not a part of and never will know firsthand. However, taking the time to look at all of it will give you an idea of what it
    takes to make your future bright.

    If you can see examples of mistakes your family has made in the past, you can take those mistakes and in turn find a way to
    keep from making those same mistakes in your own life. You can also find a way to have potential family illnesses diagnosed
    early and taken care of before they turn into serious problems.

    So, if you have not already, schedule an afternoon to visit with your Grandparents about the past and ask them to relive
    their good memories with you. Then, ask if you can see some of the mementos and artifacts that they have kept for years.
    They will most likely be excited to share their lives with you and be thankful that you care. You, in turn, will find out
    interesting facts about the past and where your family came from and where you can help take it in the future.

    Understanding the past is indeed the key to understanding the future. Take your opportunity to find out more about the
    family artifacts in your family while your Grandparents are still around. They will appreciate your gesture and you will
    sit in awe of the stories and events that they have lived through in their lives.

    What Can You Do With Those Artifacts in Your Home?

  • What Can You Do With Those Artifacts in Your Home?

    You have finally had it with the junk in your home. You conduct a thorough cleaning of the whole house and come up with a
    ton of stuff that you would like to get rid of and save your house from becoming a museum of artifacts and ancient furniture
    and knickknacks.

    But hold on just a moment. As it turns out, you may be sitting on a gold mine so it will be to your benefit to search through
    the selection of junk and find the treasures you can sell. Once you find the treasures, where should you sell them? eBay is
    always a great choice to sell unwanted items because people from all over the world will have a chance to take a look at
    the items and buy them if they are interested. There is always a buyer for everything.

    That broken lamp? Could be worth a lot to a collector. Those old records? Some music junkie in Europe would love to add
    them to his collection. You may hate your stuff, but other people might not and why not try to make a little bit of money
    from getting rid of the artifacts in your home. You just need to set up an eBay account and follow the instructions.
    Within a few minutes, you will be selling your artifacts online and will have buyers for them within hours or days.
    Then, the most difficult thing after that will be collecting the money and keeping a straight face as you travel to the
    post office to send off the artifacts to their new owners.

    What if you do not want to sell things on eBay? You could hold a garage sale and let others come by and sift through your
    artifacts and rejected items while you sit back with a nice glass of lemonade. Or, you could choose to not sell your
    artifacts at all, and instead donate them to a second-hand store to benefit their charities. You will not only be helping
    others, but you will also be able to mark the costs off on your taxes. Not a bad way to get rid of old junk you do not want

    Any of these ways would be fantastic choices to getting rid of the artifacts that have cluttered your home for years. Just
    realize though that you will have to do this again at a later time and the stuff you and your family covet today will turn
    into artifacts in just a few years. Styles and tastes change, however, you do not have to live with the artifacts of the
    past forever. Simply purge the stuff you do not need anymore and enjoy your newly empty space-at least until you find a way
    to put more junk into it.

    And do not try to kid yourself, you will find more junk to fill your home. It is human nature. See, what are you doing
    right now? Yes, that is right. You are thinking about going shopping. The cycle continues.

    Strange Artifacts Abound!

  • Strange Artifacts Abound!

    We have become familiar with the term artifacts and what that means. Usually things like animal bones, arrowheads, ancient
    documents and complex statues are what comes to mind when we think of things like artifacts. However, like with everything
    else in life, there are plenty of strange artifacts that have been found by archaeologists that defy reason and have no
    explanation. Here are a list of several strange artifacts that have been found over the years:

    Strange Fossils: Modern science has led us to believe that people have not been around in our current forms for that many
    years. However, researchers have found strange looking fossils that have defied traditionally accepted ideas. Like for
    instance, several handprint and footprint imprints have been found that scientists have dated back millions of years. This
    is much longer than people have been thought to be around. There has even been a fossil unearthed that looks like a man
    wearing a sandal that appears to also be several million years old. Who can explain it! No one, yet.

    Metal Spheres: People have been digging up odd metal spheres in Africa for years now. These metal spheres are perfectly
    round and some have designs etched into them. No one can explain what they were used for, but one thing is for certain. 
    They have been around for billions of  years and do not look like they are going anywhere anytime soon.

    Ancients Discs: Researchers have unearthed amazing looking gold discs in Chinese caves that look to be ancient version
    of records. What were they used for? I guess we will probably never know.

    Ancient batteries: Researchers have found examples of batteries developed by ancient people in the Middle East that are
    similar to that of the batteries of today. Amazing to think of the technology that could have existed millions of years ago.

    Aircraft Shaped Artifacts: Scientists have unearthed artifacts in Egypt and South America, two entirely different continents
    that are shaped unusually similar to modern aircrafts. Did they have the technology and the know how to make flight back
    then? WE will probably never know.

    Huge Spherical Balls: Balls, perfectly circular, have been found in the jungles of Costa Rica and Central America for
    decades. Some of these weigh a few ounces, others a few tons.  Though they are clearly man-made, it’s not clear what purpose
    they actually served for the people who made them.

    The list of strange fossils can go on and on and the debates that go along with them will last forever. What can we make of
    the strange findings of scientists and researchers? Well, civilizations could have been much more advanced that we have
    previously given them credit for. Or, other beings have inhabited the Earth earlier than we realize. Who really knows for
    sure? One thing is for certain: it is pretty amazing what ancient people could do and what similarities we have with them
    now. These artifacts will continue to amaze us for thousands of years to come.

  • Artifact Games.....What in the World is That Game He's Playing?

    You do not claim to understand the video games and popular culture obsessions of today. In your day, you could play the
    Atari and you surely did not have the blogs and constant online social types of interaction that kids do today. But, despite
    not knowing about this online world, you would like to understand a little bit more about what your kids do when they play
    video games online or on their video game consoles.

    One of the games that have mystified parents for years is Artifacts, an online computer game. Artifacts was developed by
    SAMU games back in the late 1990’s as a purely online game that could handle several players at once. Gamers who log on to
    the site can play the Artifacts game or simply chat with the friends they have made on the site.

    Because the game has been around for such a long time, gamers have tips and tricks to make the game more interesting that
    it already is. People consistently develop “cheating” techniques for video games that allow certain things to happen only
    when the gamer knows the secret cheating code.

    You may not believe it, but online strategy games like Artifacts teaches young people about the importance of hand-eye
    coordination, quick thinking and critical thinking. These are all important traits for kids to have as they grow older. It
    will allow them to be more effective in school work and in future jobs because they are able to easily solve complex
    problems and develop and maintain relationships that are complex.

    Now, this is not meant to be an overall endorsement of constant video game playing. But, playing games like Artifacts can
    help the young players in more ways than parents would like to believe. Experts believe that a generation of sharper kids
    will develop from those kids who grew up playing video games.

    On the other hand, kids who grow up with video games are less likely to search out more personal relationships with others
    because they are able to go online and easily find people who share the same interests and values that they do.

    The important thing for parents to do is create a balance of real and virtual life for their children. Limit internet and
    game playing time to a certain amount of hours per week and require children to hang out with real-life friends and seek
    out outside activities like hide and seek and sports.

    Maintaining a balance will help your child continue to play his beloved games like Artifacts, but also be a socially
    balanced person. Your child may not appreciate it that you are limiting his online time to a few hours a week. However,
    he will thank you later on in life when he is successful because he got the gaming skills along with the important social
    skills as well.

    And then you can look back and smile when you remember your child’s favorite web site and video games.

  • Vintage Fashion: Artifacts From Years Gone By

    Look at the pages of the latest issue of a prominent fashion magazine and you are sure to find it. Look online at the numerous
    celebrity blogs and you will be sure to find it. Visit your local consignment clothing store and you are absolutely sure to
    find it.

    What is this “it?” The “it” is vintage fashion and it continues to be all the rage in fashion circles year after year. The
    definitely of vintage, or retro fashion, depends on the person writing about or wearing the artifacts from years gone by.
    But one thing in fashion is apparent: fashion comes and goes in cycles and what was in style when you were young will most
    likely be considered vintage fashion when you grow up and have children of your own.

    For several years, vintage fashion boasted artifacts from the 1960’s: mini-dresses and knee high boots. Then it was the
    1970’s vintage fashions of afro hair styles and bell bottom pants along with wedge heels and flowing disco tops.
    Now, look on the pages of fashion magazines or blogs and the newest fashion artifacts are considered fashions from not that
    long ago: the 1980’s. Slouch socks, neon prints, tons of jewelry, big hair and make up are coming back in to style in stages
    and it is funny to see fashion writers discuss how this is now vintage fashion. People who were born in the 1980’s are still
    in their twenties: hardly artifact-type people!

    But people have had to deal with fashions coming back in and out since the beginning of clothing. People have always been
    concerned with being the best dressed and as time passed, ideas for fashion started to wane and styles and ideas were repeated,
    hence the continued popularity of vintage fashion.

    The best way to approach fashion is to mix vintage pieces with other items that are not considered to be artifacts. Mixing
    the old and the new will show others that you are a fashion forward type of person who is able to confidently mix up fashions
    without appearing overly made-up or ridiculous.

    Fashions will continue to come in and out of style as long as there are fashion designers and people there to write about
    and buy the clothes. We will not escape fashion, especially vintage type fashions, so we might as well embrace it and wear
    it proudly.

    You will not be considered an artifact if you do indeed adopt retro or vintage fashions. Instead, you will be looked at as
    a fashion forward person who is continually looking for new ways to push the fashion envelope. Wear the clothes right and
    you could be considered the newest “it” person on the covers of the magazines and soon be walking the runways of Paris and

    Okay, not really, but it is fun to dream, right? And vintage fashion can help you escape to a time where life was simple.
    So travel back in time and look good doing it with vintage fashions.

  • Making a Career Out of Artifacts

    You spend your childhood entranced by dinosaur bones and everything that was prehistoric and died several million years ago.
    You gazed longingly at the collections of dinosaur bones in your favorite museum and begged your parents for your very own
    ancient arrow head when you visited ancient Native American burial grounds.

    Now that you are grown up, it is easy to understand your chosen career path when you think of your childhood days. You went
    to school for many years and now you are an archeologist who spends his days digging up ancient artifacts and bones in some
    of the most remote locations of the world.

    To sum it up, you help the world piece the history together. There are so many things we have learned from archeology expeditions
    that help us shape what we believe the world was millions of years ago. All thanks to the work of dedicated professionals
    who devote their lives to studying the past. Their study of the past helps us create a better future.

    Man would not have known about dinosaurs had it not been for archeologists who dug up the artifacts of that period including
    the bones to show what they looked like millions of years ago. Also, if it was not for archeologists on their constant
    quests for artifacts, we never would have learned about the lives of the Ancient Egyptians and the people who died in

    Archeologists are vital to the future of our world, but do not receive the proper amount of credit. They have been
    instrumental in the formation of the United States as well. They helped piece together the history of the Native Americans
    and helped find Native American artifacts like weaponry that help explain where some of our current weapons originated from.

    Just imagine what we would not know if archeologists did not spend their time researching and creating our history. We would
    be a world who thinks it started after Christopher Columbus sailed to America. Well, maybe not. But out world history view
    would definitely be limited.

    So, you may not know an actual archeologist personally, but than them each time you visit a museum, watch a historical
    documentary or learn something about the history of the United States. They were the ones who helped do the research and
    find out the truth behind the mysteries in life.

    If you are interested in pursuing a career in artifact searching, find a college that offers a good program in archeology.
    There are several across the country that will help you learn about the past and learn the tools to becoming one yourself.
    These programs can be quite demanding and you must be able to handle the dangers and challenges that come along with this
    sort of career to be successful.

    Imagine walking across the desert and finding ancient scribes that were written millions of years ago. That dream could
    definitely be a reality if you pursue a career in artifact finding and archeology.

  • Find Artifacts in Your Home Town!

    If you are anything like me, you probably think your home town is the most boring place on the planet Earth, especially if
    it is a small town. But it is still probably boring if you live in a big city because there is a limit on what you can do as
    a child growing up.

    However, there is a way for kids to find something fun to do with their friends that does not involve getting into trouble
    with the law or drugs. This game is sort of like a scavenger hunt and will appeal to all of the aspiring Indiana Jones
    wannabes of the world. This game does not really have a name, but entails finding artifacts all over your home town or
    neighborhood. Now, these do not really have to be artifacts, but can be anything you consider old and worthy of mention
    as a unique item.

    To play, approach it like a scavenger hunt. Have you child get a group of friends together and decide on the rules. For
    instance, each child must find an interesting old rock, a piece of petrified wood and some really old pop bottles or cans.
    The options are limitless because it depends on what you, your child and his group of friends deems to be worthy of the term
    artifacts. Also, your child might consider something to be an artifact that is really only a couple of years old. But to him,
     it is ancient.

    Your child and his friends can then use their imaginations and create their very own treasure hunt and archeological
    expedition with just a few things. It is the best way to get your kids and their friends outside to enjoy the weather and
    truly be a kid. The kids get to flex their creativity and you get to rest easy knowing they are participating in a wholesome
    activity that helps them think strategically and quickly.

    Once your child and his group of friends have gathered their artifacts, have them meet to show off their wares. You never
    know, one of the children may have found something that will spark off a conversation about the history of your home town,
    history of the United States, the history of anything.

    The game of finding artifacts is also one that can be played by adults as a twist on the traditional notion of scavenger
    hunting. There are only so many restaurant straws and ketchup packets you can collect in these sorts of games. This gives
    you an opportunity to go back to your childhood and find the joy in finding “artifacts.”

    So, let your kids be kids and let them scavenge for artifacts. Then you can also be a kid again with your very own version
    of the game. It is fun, it is free and it can turn out to be a great educational opportunity for your child. No video game
    or sophisticated computer toy or cell phone can boast the same educational benefits that this game can have.

    How To Send MMS Messages On iPhone

    For those who have the Apple iPhone, it is probably quickly becoming your number one used electronic device, and why not?  With such amazing features as internet access, music storage and the simplistic interface design, this product is literally taking the place of three major personal electronic devices.  However, no matter what you use your iPhone for, it is still a cell phone, and with your cell phone there are several things that you expect it to do.  One of the major reasons why so many people flocked towards the iPhone is because it promised to make text messaging extremely simple and convenient.  And after using the iPhone for any length of time, it is easy to understand that text messaging with this cell phone is extremely easy and quick.

    However, if you are used to being able to communicate to your friends and business partners through text and multimedia messages, or MMS, you may find yourself being extremely disappointed with the iPhone.  The reason for this is because throughout all of the major improvements and superior features of the iPhone, it still lacks one simple feature.  This feature is the ability to send MMS text messages, such as video and picture messaging.  When many users first discovered the lack of this feature, there was an outcry because so many people rely on this means of communication to keep their contacts up-to-date on their current activities. 

    Even though the iPhone is an amazing piece of electronic equipment, not having the capabilities for sending MMS text messages is a major turn-off for so many potential customers and current ones as well.  However, what if you were to find out that there was a way to get around this road block, and still send pictures of that funny looking dog to all your friends?  Even though you can't send a MMS text message, there is a way to still send pictures to your friend's cell phones, without the means of text messaging.  Most cell phones that have been made within recent years now come with e-mail capabilities, whether the users know this or not.  It is by the means of e-mail that you are now able to send MMS messages to all of your friends. 

    It is extremely easy to do this with your iPhone, and requires very little time on your part.  What you will do is "e-mail" the photos to your recipient; however, the person you are "e-mailing" doesn't have to have e-mail support on their phone in order to receive your message.  The only requirement is your recipient must be able to receive MMS messages.  What you will do is find the photo you want to send on your iPhone and tap the send photo link, which is located on the bottom left hand side of your iPhone.

    To send the MMS message, you will include the recipient's phone number along with their carrier's e-mail prefix.  An example of this would be 3145556847@tmomail.net for a T-mobile telephone number.  This does require that you know who your recipient's carrier is, however, all you have to do is ask your friend who their cell phone carrier is.  After you have done this, you will be able to send the MMS message to them, and they will receive it like a MMS text message. 

    Below are the Email Prefixes for the major cell phone carriers:  Verizon, vzpix.com; AT&T/Cingular, mms.att.com; T-Mobile, tmomail.net; Sprint/Nextel, messaging.sprintpcs.com; Virgin Mobile, vmobl.net; Amp'd Mobile, vzwpix.com; Alltel, message.alltel.com

  • How To Make Your iPhone Ringer Louder

    Perhaps one of the most aggravating aspects of having a cell phone is when you miss a telephone call.  There are many reasons why you can miss a phone call, however, when you miss a very important call due to your ringer's low volume, this is extremely aggravating.  If you own an iPhone, than you may have missed many phone calls due to the low ringer volume, which is very surprising.  When you have a cell phone as high-tech as the iPhone, than you expect it to be able to properly notify you when you have a phone call, however, due to the iPhone's lower than normal ringer volume many people are missing phone calls.  But what can you do about the iPhone's low ringer volume?

    Many people who have an iPhone think that the reason why the ringer volume is so low is because of the iPhone's small speakers.  And this makes sense because the smaller the speakers are, the lower the volume, right?  While this may seem to be a great reason why the iPhone's volume is so low, it may not be the actual cause.  The main cause for a ringer volume that is extremely low may be due to the actual audio levels in your phone.  Many people have found that with their iPhone, the stock ringers have such a low volume.  In order to fix this, you may have to find new ringtones other than those that are already on your iPhone.

    The main cause for the ringtones being so quite is the fact that they are made of a low frequency.  Thus, if you want to be able to have a louder ringtone, than you will need to find a ringtone that is made of a higher frequency.  This may sound difficult, but you can find a higher frequency ringtone by simply turning to your computer.  If you are a MAC owner, than you will be able to go into the application Garage Band and find a new ringtone within this location.  Perhaps the best ringtone from Garage Band is the "Cell Phone Ringing" sound clip.

    However, putting a new ringtone onto your iPhone requires a little work on your part.  In order to put this clip onto your iPhone, than you will need to run iFunstastic, which is for individuals that have an Intel-MAC, or if you are using a Windows PC than you will want to run the application iPhoneRingToneMaker or iBrickr.  These applications will install the ringtones from your computer to your iPhone, thus giving you the ability to have a ringtone that is clearly audible. 

    The key to having a successful ringtone is picking one that is naturally loud by default.  This will increase the sound volume that is being release, and thus you will never miss another phone call because you didn't hear it.  When you have an iPhone, you want to enjoy every aspect of it, however, if the volume of the iPhone is lower than desired, than you will not be able to enjoy your iPhone to its fullest.

    How to extend your iPhone battery life

    If there is anything that annoys more cell phone users it is loosing battery power while you are on the phone.  This has happened to nearly everybody, and at least once it caught you by complete surprise.  When you are running a cell phone as powerful as the iPhone, it is easy to understand why the battery power begins to drain.  When you are listening to your favorite song, checking your email and text messaging several friends at once, you are requiring a lot of the cell phones' power.  Thus, you will begin to drain your cell phone of battery life quicker than you thought.

    Even though, on the Apple website, they clearly explain the battery life expectations, they only include the information if you are running one application at a time.  However, if iPhone users are known for anything, it is for their ability to multitask.  Yet, multitasking means a shorter battery life.

    However, there are several things that you can do to make your iPhone's battery life even longer.  Of course, the iPhone isn't known for draining its battery extremely quick, there is always room for a prolonged battery performance.  If you follow these tips, than you will have an iPhone that lasts you longer than you could even imagine.  Perhaps the best tip that anyone with an iPhone can follow is to simply turn off your Bluetooth if you are not using it.  Very little people understand that when you keep your Bluetooth turned on, when you are not using it, you are draining your battery.

    This is because there is a set amount of power that is controlled by the Bluetooth section of your iPhone, and the power is draining because the phone is constantly searching for other Bluetooth devices.  If you do not want to pair with a Bluetooth device, than make sure that your Bluetooth is turned off.

    Another tip to making your battery life on your iPhone last longer is to always lock your iPhone when you are done using it.  When you are finished talking on the phone with your best friend, checking your e-mail or sending a text message, make sure that you activate the lock button.  Many people wait for the screen to shut down by itself after they are using it, while this  may seem like a great idea, you are wasting battery life by doing so.  Also, make sure that you set your auto-lock because this is a great way to ensure your phone will lock itself just in case you forget to.  There are many iPhone owners that set their auto lock for five minutes after use.

    However, if you multiply this five minutes of power usage by ten times per day, your battery will not last you as long as you might think.  This is why it is always suggested that you set your auto lock for one minute (1) after you have completed using your phone.  This will ensure that the iPhone screen will not stay lit when it is not being used.  If you want to have a hassle-free way to save battery life, than this is the way to do it. 

    How To Clean Your iPhone

    How To Clean Your iPhone

    When you have a product, such as the iPhone, it is imperative that you care for this electronic device so that it will last you many years.  However, one of the easiest ways to care for your Apple iPhone is not to go out and purchase various products to keep it safe throughout its life, while that is important, the best way to show your new cell phone some T.L.C. is through simply cleaning it.  However, this poses a major problem for many people.  The reason for this is because since the iPhone is such a unique device, and its screen is so sensitive to touch, many people don't know how they can properly clean their iPhone without damaging it.

    Of course, when you are cleaning your iPhone, you don't want to simply wash it with any type of cleaners, because these cleaners could actually cause the iPhone to malfunction, thus giving you a defective product.  When you are cleaning your iPhone, you must ensure that you take extra care, and don't do it if you are in a rush.  The reason behind this is because if you are lazy, or in a hurry, you may damage the inner workings of the iPhone, as well as the ever important screen.  When you are cleaning your iPhone, there are several items that you must have.  These items will allow you to effectively clean your phone without damaging the sensitive touch screen or the inner workings of your fantastic cell phone.

    Before you clean your iPhone, you need to make sure that you have the following items:  water, microfiber cloth and your favorite CD to relax you and make the process enjoyable.  Make sure that you NEVER use any type of chemical agents to clean your iPhone, because these can actually hinder the way the screen interacts with you.  Once you have gathered all of the items sit down and place the water in a small cup.  With the microfiber cloth, which is available through the many various iPhone retailers, dip the corner of the cloth into the water, allowing it to become saturated with the water.

    Make sure that you do not use too much water though, a good way to test to see if you have enough water is to grab a piece of glass, or go to a mirror, and with the wet cloth wipe off a corner.  If there is streaming water drops coming from where you wiped the mirror, than you have too much water on the cloth and you need to dry it out some.

    You want to be able to wipe your iPhone screen without having drops of water left behind.  Next, take the slightly wetted cloth and begin to wipe the screen of your iPhone in a up-and-down motion.  Do not wipe in circles, because this can leave behind smudges that are unsightly when you turn on your iPhone.  It will usually take one or two wipes to clean the entire surface of your iPhone.  How often you clean your iPhone depends on how much you use it.  Since the screen of your phone is the interface to the entire product, than you will be using it constantly, thus the oils from your fingers will begin to build up and create a dingy look to the screen.  Average users clean their iPhone once a week, maybe once every two weeks.

  • Can you use your iPhone overseas

    If you are a business professional, than you use your iPhone for more than simply keeping in touch with your friends and family, in many cases your iPhone is your link to the business world.  Whether you are keeping track of your stocks, checking your e-mail or conducting conference calls while on your way to a business meeting, your iPhone is literally your key to keeping connected with your professional life.  However, if you are like most business professionals, than you travel the globe in order to keep your business active and profitable.  There are many concerns that people have with cell phones are whether or not you will be able to use your phone when you are in a different country, especially if you are visiting for an extended period of time. 

    Like most cell phones, the iPhone works with a particular cell phone carrier, and in this case you have your service through AT&T/Cingular.  Many business professionals want the security in knowing that their cell phone service will not be disrupted simply because they travel from country to country.  Since the iPhone is serviced by AT&T/Cingular, you will not have to worry about loosing service, or features, because the iPhone uses the GSM system.  GSM is an acronym that stands for Global System for Mobile communication, thus allowing you to use your cell phone in many different countries.  Actually, there are over one hundred countries around the world that use GSM, thus allowing you to keep using your iPhone without any hindrance to cell service. 

    Many business travelers go to Europe and Asia, and since their iPhone uses GSM, they are able to have excellent service throughout both of these locations.  However, there are some precautions that you will want to take before you leave the country with your iPhone.  If you have ever traveled throughout the world and used your cell phone, you were probably surprised by extremely high charges for phone and data use.

    This is because your number is an American telephone number, thus every call you make within another country is looked upon by your carrier as an international call.  If you are overseas for quite some time, than it is easy to accumulate several hundred dollars worth of fees and roaming charges, this is why you will
    want to alter you calling plan if you travel overseas frequently. 

    AT&T/Cingular has really great international calling plans that are very cost effective.  Thus you are able to still travel throughout the world without having to worry about roaming and international call fees.  Also, if you use data on your iPhone, which most of you do, you will want to make sure that you have an international data plan as well.  The worst homecoming surprise you can get is opening your cell phone bill only to find several hundred dollars worth of extra charges and fees.  However, if you plan ahead and make sure that you obtain a new service plan that includes international cell phone use, you will not have to worry about extremely high charges.

    Can the iPhone connect with iPod Accessories

    If you are a new owner of an apple iPhone, than you have probably not let your new cell phone leave your hands for several days.  This is to be expected, however, many people have questions concerning their new iPhone and its compatibility with other electronic devices, especially those within the Apple product family.  Perhaps the most widely asked question about the new iPhone's is whether or not they are compatible with other iPod accessories?  While many people may think that they wouldn't be compatible, they are greatly mistaking. 

    All of the iPhone's are compatible with most iPod accessories, thus making your iPhone even more convenient and user friendly.  But another question that many people still have is what exact iPod accessories can you use with your new iPhone?  Of course, many people love to use their iPods not only for personal music enjoyment, but also to feel a party with their favorite tunes.  And if you no longer carry around your iPod, but rather your iPhone, you may be worried that you aren't going to be able to connect your iPhone to the speaker system your iPod used to connect with.  Yet, with all it's amazing glory, the iPhone has the same connectivity port as the iPhone, thus it will connect seamlessly to any iPod speaker systems as well as car docks. 

    Of course, there are some accessories that have been altered to better fit the iPhone.  You are able to use standard headphones with the iPhone, however, if a call comes through, than you may experience slight difficulty taking the headphones out and answering the phone.  This is why Apple has made a set of headphones that are designed to work seamlessly with the iPhone.  These amazing headphones provide you with excellent sound quality, however, they also have a microphone built into the cord, thus when you receive a phone call, your song is paused and you are able to answer the phone, as well as end the call, by clicking a small button on the microphone.  Another great feature about these headphones is the fact that you are able to hear your friends through more than one ear, which is a very unique, and interesting, experience. 

    Another reason why this iPhone headphone set is such a great accessory for your product is because it provides you with safety.  How many times have you been driving throughout traffic only to miss your exit or almost hit another vehicle because you were focused on holding your cell phone?  While it is advised that you never drive while talking on your phone, for working professionals, and those with a booming social life, this is not a possibility.  Thus, you need a product that allows you to have both hands on the steering wheel, as well as the freedom t move your head back and forth to view all traffic around you.

    With the iPhone headphones, you are able to keep your conversations moving forward, without having to worry about holding your cell phone.  The added benefit of this is great because not  only will you be able to talk with your business partners, or friends, in true stereo, but you are also able to focus completely on the road and not on holding your cell phone.

    This headset actually conforms to the curve of your face, thus giving you sound quality and comfort unlike anything else.  Also, the size of this headset is quite small, thus making it not-as-noticeable as some other Bluetooth headsets.  This small and sophisticated headset will not take away from your professional appearance, but it will enhance it. 

    But what really makes this headset stand out from all the rest?  Since this headset is a noise cancelling device, it literally makes note of the ambient noise that is resting around you.  Thus, it will actually adjust its audio volume depending on how loud the room is around you.  This will mean that you will always have perfect audio quality, which is something that many Bluetooth headsets lack.  The curve of the headset is not only done for aesthetic reasons, but it also serves a more high-tech purpose.

    Since the curve of the microphone rests on your cheeks, it doesn't simply detect and relay the sound coming from your mouth; it actually feels the vibrations from your voice and then activates the microphone.  This is due to the various sound sensors that are placed within this headset.  If you are looking for a great companion with your iPhone that will add style and grace to the way you communicate, than you will love the Jawbone Noise Shield Bluetooth Headset.

  • Best Applications for College Students

    As a college student, you need to have several things in order to keep your sanity.  For one, you have to have a good study schedule, next you need to be able to communicate with your friends and family, which is why so many students have the iPhone.  However, one of the most important aspects about having an iPhone and being a college student, is the fact that you can apply certain applications that will help you both in your academic life, as well as in your social life.  With the iPhone consistently coming out with new applications, you are able to find some that are entertainment and helpful. 

    Perhaps one of the coolest applications for a college student who always wants to have a good time is the Ajax Bartender iPhone application.  This amazing application allows you to find and make over 40,000 various alcoholic drinks.  However, what really makes this application so unique is the fact that it allows you to choose your drinks based on what you want to put in them.  Have you ever been with friends, and someone says they want to drink Tequila, but they don't know how to make very many different types of drinks with it.

    Well, with the Ajax Bartender application, you can choose Tequila, and then you are able to choose what you want to mix it with and an entire list of various drinks featuring the two ingredients you want pop up on your screen.  This is perfect for holiday party ideas, spur-of-the-moment get together with friends, or just a great companion when you go bar hopping.  You will never have to wonder what you're going to drink that night. 

    Another great application is a far cry from the above one; however, it serves an equally important role in the life of a college student.  Whether you are majoring in physical science or criminal justice, you will have to take math courses.  And if you are like most people, than you have to have a calculator when you enter these dreaded classes.  However, instead of having to carry your iPhone and a huge calculator, you are able to carry just your iPhone when it has the Belfry SciCalc installed.  This scientific and programming calculator will give you access to many different types of equations.  Whether you need this calculator for Algebra, Trigonometric functions or even with standard math problems, this application can handle anything mathematical you throw at it.

    Which is what makes this application perfect for a wide variety of college students, because it doesn't matter if you are working on a hexadecimal problem, or you can't remember what the square root of 164 is, you are able to use this calculator with ease and precision.  Also, the main reason why so many people love this application is because it eliminates the need for a bulky scientific calculator, in most cases, and it allows you to carry only your iPhone.  When you're in college, you have enough to worry about, so why not let your iPhone Belfry SciCalc take care of the math for you?

  • Information That Can Save Your Computers Life-Importance Of Anti Virus

    You keep hearing there are all these scary things to avoid while being online. There are so many confusing topics and just a lot of noise out there about what you should be doing and shouldn’t be doing. You get to the point where it’s easier to just not go online! You ask yourself, what sites should I go on, which ones to I avoid, what e-mails can I open, and can I download anything or not? These are some of the questions you should be asking yourself and become aware of.
    Why is this important?

     The bottom line is the Internet is an amazing utility to use in your daily life to connect with friends and family, do some shopping, and get work done much faster. Just as there are scams you need to be aware of in your daily life, you need to be aware online. Unfortunately when you are online you can’t see what sites and programs you can trust or not trust. It’s not as easy as your wallet was stolen so you can easily call and cancel your credit cards. But if you are going to use the online world (which it’s a great tool and you should!) like everything else, you need to protect your information.

    You don’t leave your personal information out for anyone to see and pick up in your daily life, and you need to learn how to not do that while you are online! With these few steps you can be relatively safe. Just as when you are in the real world you need to always be aware and cautious. Never give out your passwords or PIN numbers: No matter who asks for it, do not give it out.

    Almost all legitimate sites will never ask you for that information. If you loose your password there are ways for you to change it yourself. If someone offers to change it for you, say no. A good tip is to change your password periodically and don’t use your home address or birthdates as that information may be easily obtainable by predators. You can be confidant that you are the only one that’s knows it.
    Unfortunately over the past few years it’s become increasingly dangerous to download anything online. Once a malicious program gets onto your computer it can be a great annoyance factor and harmful to your personal information.

    Companies that offer a free download of their product you should be wary of; do a gut check as to whether you can trust them. Also have common sense; most things in life are never completely free!
    At the end of the day you should act online how you act in your daily life; always use common sense! If something looks odd to you, then take an extra minute to check it out. If something looks too good to be true, it probably is. Anti Virus protects your computer, there is no doubt about that. Online scammers prey on people who are not aware, often in a rush, and most of all gullible.

  • How Anti-Virus Keeps Your Computer From Crashing

    I'll be the first to admit I did not know much about computers.I always thought when you got a computer it came with everything you needed.What I didn't know was that you always need an anti-virus on your computer to keep it from crashing.My computer of course came with that,but I did not know after a certain length of time you have to pay to renew it.

    I always thought the terminally on a computer was strange.Things like anti-virus,checking the cookies,The mouse,seemed crazy to me.Well after I found out that I had been running my computer with no anti-virus program I didn't know what to do.My husband and I are on a fixed income so I couldn't really afford to buy anything else for the computer.It took me years to save up to get this computer.I never expected you could get something at no cost to you.I found out that there are many free sites to get a anti-virus program.

    A lot of these sites let you download the anti- virus protection for free.That was right up my alley,free! Well after I downloaded it I had to figure out next how to use it.I am not really swift on a computer.I learned that I just hit the button that says start scanning and the anti-virus program scans everything and tells me if my computer has any viruses on it.I also learned you should not put a lot of things on your computer you really don't have to have on it.I love music so I would download a lot of my favorite songs on my computer.

    That way when I get on my computer I can play my favorite songs.I did not know that slowed your computer down.I also loved to play games on the computer such as bingo or slots.I sure found out pretty quickly that not only can you lose your money fast,downloading those sites could have caused problems on my computer.I was told that the anti-virus program protects my computer from sites like those.After I was told I really didn't need those kind of things on my computer I went to my add and delete program and delete them.

    My computer actually started to run faster after I did that.I also go to run and type in cookies and clear everything out of it.It would be to easy for someone out there who knows how to hack into peoples computers to get my personal information.Identity theft is also a big concern these days.I really trust my anti-virus program to protect me from such things as identity theft but I have to do my part also.

    I need to be careful about putting my social security number over the computer,or most important my credit card number or my banking information.So remember to be smart about those kind of things and try to use your anti-virus program at least twice a week.

  • Hackers Do Exist-Get More Information About Anti Virus

    In the early days of personal computers, in the age of the DOS command-line operating system, there were viruses that hid their presence from the users and anti-virus programs. They did it by intercepting some system calls that were responsible for reading the files, and lied to the system by filling these calls with fake information. You could view an infected file right in front of your eyes and see nothing but legit code! These viruses were called 'stealth' in those days.

    When computers evolved, Windows replaced the DOS. Old viruses did not run under the new operating system, and it wasn't easy to develop simple hacks to intercept system calls in Windows. But time has passed, and now there's a new wave of viruses that can work on Windows and hide their presence even more efficiently than the stealth viruses of the old days. These new viruses are called rootkits.
    Microsoft tried to address the problem by releasing their own Rootkit Revealer.

    The Partizan technology is unique to UnHackMe. Microsoft states that there exists no sure way to know of a rootkit's presence from within a running system. Instead of trying to combat rootkits on their own ground, Partizan fools them by booting with the operating system and taking control before any rootkits can load. Anti virus programs can be very beneficial to you and for your computer system.

    While being a correct concept, this tool fails on too many levels. Microsoft Rootkit Revealer is intended for use by system administrators and software developers. The results of its work are not detections but rather hint that there's something in the system that's hidden. And of course, Rootkit Revealer does not remove rootkits, making its benefits questionable at best for a regular computer user. Being the first to load, UnHackMe can safely watch all stages of the Windows boot process, effectively detecting and terminating any activities attempted by the rootkits.

    Once there's no rootkit in the computer's memory, detecting and removing one is a matter of routine. UnHackMe can remove known rootkits by itself or simply block the rootkit from loading into memory and pass control to your regular anti-virus.
    Scanning your entire PC for the presence of a rootkit with a regular antivirus can take hours of time depending on the number of files and programs you have. UnHackMe takes scanning speed to another level by taking only a few seconds every time your computer loads.

    Complement your antivirus with a rootkit detection and removal system and liberate your PC from rootkits! UnHackMe with Partizan technology is highly compatible and designed to complement other antivirus solutions instead of conflicting with them. Antivirus and anti-rootkit products often conflict with each other. Not UnHackMe! You can safely pair UnHackMe with an antivirus of your choice, providing ultimate protection against all kinds of anti viruses and rootkits. Good luck and I hope that your computer experiences get better each time you get on.

    We are living in an Information age and today more and more people use computers to help them reach information or to do some work. Every computer in order to operate uses an operation system and one of the most frequently used operation systems today is called Microsoft Windows. It has many versions but when it comes down to repair there are some fundamental things that people should know to easily help themselves and to know exactly when a help from a specialist is necessary. Anti virus is what you all need to know about.

I will not give any details because the goal of this article is only to give you the basics to enable anyone who want to begin from there. Now I will tell you about some basic operations you need to learn to perform on a regular basis.

    The first one is called backup. It is done by simple copy of your important data into one or more locations or you can use more sophisticated methods like partition backups or system backup. When making backup keep in mind that the keeper of it is very important. If you store the backup on your hard drive the chances for it to be damaged are big. They are even bigger when using floppy diskettes or CDs. One good way could be a fast ftp access or on other Internet location that is secured, big enough and fast enough for your needs.

    The system registry is another part of your system you should know about. It is made to keep almost every option that software and hardware use to work. Many programs could help you clean it up and tune up your system but you should know that sometimes this could be dangerous because if you damage a critical segment of your registry data the system may crush or some of your software could not work properly. Usually people reinstall the software that causes problems and most of the time this could fix things up but the system registry always needs to be taken seriously no matter what operations you want to perform on it.
    The system checking is another opportunity to analyze possible problems with your software or hardware components.

    Every Windows system has tools designed to help you on that matter. On the market you can find some more advanced software too provided from Symantec or other software corporations. Sometimes when you store important information you may even want to ask professionals to keep you safe because it is impossible for everyone to know even the main principals on how viruses works and how to keep yourself save from them.
    There are many ways to contact a professional today or to install an anti virus program. This could save you not only time, nerves and money but it could help you design a new way to perform the operations you need and help you take your work to a new plane.

  • Concerning Issues With Anti-virus

     The ongoing writing and spreading of viruses and of panic about them gives the vendors of commercial anti virus software a financial interest in the ongoing existence of viruses.Some theorize that antivirus companies have financial ties to virus writers, to generate their own market,though there is really know evidence that we know of.Some of the antivirus software can considerable reduce performance.

    Users may disable the antivirus protection to overcome the performance loss,thus increasing the risk of infection.For maximum protection the antivirus software needs to be enabled at all times-often at the cost of slower performance.It is also important to know that a person should not have more than one antivirus software installed on a single computer at any given time.This can seriously cripple your computer and cause further damage.

    It is also sometimes necessary to temporarily disable virus protection when you install major updates such as Windows Service Packs or updating graphics card drivers.Having antivirus protection running at the same time as installing a major update may prevent the update installing properly or even installing it at all.When you do decide to purchase antivirus software,the agreement may include a clause that your subscription will be automatically renewed,and your credit card automatically billed at the time of you are suppose to renew without you authorizing it.

    For example,Mcafee requires you to subscribe at least 60 days before before the expiration of your present subscription,If that is the case, the subscriber may contest the charges with the credit card issuer,but this course of action is likely to be at no avail to you if in fact the subscriber had authorized such a "continuous payment authority".

    Some antivirus programs are actually spyware masquerading as antivirus software.It is to your advantage to check twice that the antivirus software which you are downloading is actually a real antivirus program.Some commercial antivirus software programs contain adware,

    For example, the home/small business version of a CA Anti-Virus 2008 displays an advert for CA products whenever the desktop is unlocked after a period of when the computer is not active.It would be no surprise when viruses that plague the desktop and the laptop world quickly migrate to mobile devices.More and more vendors in this space are offering solutions to combat secure mobile handsets with antivirus solutions.

    Anti virus programs come in many different varieties and range from cheap to really expensive but trust me, without an anti virus program you are going to end up being out much more money in the end because of the expenses of repairing or replacing your computer. You can find many of these types of programs for your home computer or office computer right here on the internet or in any computer store in your area.

    Good luck with keeping your computer up and running properly and if you do not already have an anti virus program for your computer system, please consider choosing to purchase yourself one very soon, for a much more reliable computer, which we all need.

    Many problems could arise when you work with software and that’s why Microsoft made some troubleshooting ways to keep their users informed of many issues that people are having. Always start with the help section of the software that you thing is not working properly.

    Try to reinstall it and then search the web for your problem. This should become a routine when you fight your way through a problem. Information is the most power tool you could ever have. Try to inform yourself on the best possible way before reaching out for solutions which could take much time or even cause more problems.

    Usually there is a way to repair your installation by using the add/remove programs section of your system tools in the control panel of your system. The software most of the time works together to help you move data and operate on every level you need but this could also contribute for some problems to arise.

    There are system parts that are shared by many programs and if there is a problem there many programs could ask for repair and give you error messages with code or simple signs. If there is an error you don’t understand you can ask professional or search for it on the web. The first one is system scan.

    Scan means analysis and it is in fact a base of rules software uses to analyze possible problems with the system. Hard disk defragmentation is another term. Defragmentation is a process that reduces the fragments of the data that is stored on your hard drive. You could let it do the work during the night when you are sleeping.

    You could also make it as a schedule task and by doing this you will let the system defragmenting the disk for example every week on time that is good for you. Anti virus keep in mind that your system partition should have a top priory when beginning defragmentation.
