Wordtracker versus Google Adwords Keyword Tool

The significant difference is that WordTracker has results for many major engines, where Google has results for ‘Google‘, and does not include the numbers data that Wordtracker does. The popularity of a keyword is based upon the amount of times it is searched, not the number of impressions, which is why you can have a number of variables to keyword phrases.

Wordtracker also shows you how many other sites are competing for the same phrases, and offers what they call a KEI rating to give you probability for getting organic rankings for specific phrases.

Drive Imaging With Windows Vista

Pre-vista, Windows admins setting up drive-imaging systems had no choice but to use third-party utilities; by contrast, in early demonstrations of Vista, Microsoft emphasised the OS’s image-management capabilities. You’ll find these in ImageX, a command-line tool in Vista used to create and manage Windows image (WIM) files.

PC Chipsets Today – Choice and Confusion

There was a raft of new chipset and motherboard announcements at Computex in Taiwan this year.

We often wrestle with our individual choices for CPUs and motherboards. It’s also true, however, that the feature sets of modern motherboards are driven by the chipsets that lay at the heart of your system. That’s not to say that motherboards are all alike, even those that use the same chipset. Motherboard manufacturers add value by adding key design elements, like I/O slot layout, the robustness of the power regulation, and BIOS design. Motherboard makers can also expand on the abilities of the core logic. For example, a motherboard maker may add external FireWire chips, or add another SAT controller for greater storage flexibility.

Netbook : Impact and Implications

Ever since the EEE PC was launched way back in October 2007, the concept of the Ultra-Mobile Personal Computer (UMPCs) was turned on its head. Previously, UMPCs could hardly be called affordable, and having one usually invites more comments about your wallet rather than demanding needs. Ultra-mobile computing, mark II was hardly revolutionary in the technological sense. However, the way it seemingly addresses (or looks to be) the needs of a generation, was.

It’s not even a year since the first netbook arrived on the scene, and yet, the market has now developed to the point where you have a full range of netbooks at different price points. Ranging from as low as SGD398 (at one point) to SGD1,199 and all points in between; it feels as though the netbook is a mature product.

With such a sudden and unexpected burst of growth, it wouldn’t seem strange to think that somehow, its growth has hurt the sales of conventional notebooks.
