Webmail Vs Email Client

Webmail are web-based email accounts, usually operated from a website. Webmail for business allows the users to access their emails on their own domain and admins to control & manage their company email on the cloud. Gone are the times when webmails used to be a reduced version of the desktop email client. Now many webmails for business have developed far beyond the desktop email counterparts.

PROFESSIONAL EMAIL MANAGEMENT
Small businesses to big corporations, manage their emails professionally at their own domain : Add/Delete users, Change password, Apply restrictions to incoming & outgoing mails & it s attachment by size or type, Create & manage mailing list /groups, White List domains, Manage visibility of shared Global address book, Block Sender – all the tools needed to protect your company’s interest from the cloud based admin panel. But more user ids as your business grows.

ACCESS ANYWHERE, ANY DEVICE
Having email in one location only is not an option. Unlike a desktop client email client, you can access your emails anywhere without ever worrying about syncing anything, simply need you to log in, and the rest is done. Any computer or phone from anywhere in the world, is as good as your PC when you check your email. A good webmail will allow Complete sync & Seamless access of email, calendar & contacts across devices & applications – like Desktop mail client, webmail, and any mobile phone or tablet. You can also get a downloadable Mobile app that works on most phones and tablets. Admin can Block mobile email access on when employees leave organisation remotely!

NEVER DELETE A THING
Auto-Save large volumes of incoming & outgoing emails in huge mail boxes of storage capacities upto 25GB and with total email attachment size of upto 20MB per email, without worrying about backing up your older ones and no reason to worry about clearing archives or folders to accommodate new incoming mail. If you rely on old messages to get things done, you dont need to painfully go through the list to find one when the time comes. Auto-save and intelligent search feature helps retrieve pretty much anything we need in email. Save your precious time and save yourself from headaches with the right webmail service for your organisation.

STAY ORGANIZED AND WORK EFFICIENTLY
Organization is a breeze because appearance tends to be “cleaner” when using web-based email options, unlike the messy “indented” look that desktop clients. Not only can some Webmails do pretty much everything that s desktop client can do, but can even do MORE. Organize your mails in folders to find them easily or create filter to have the mails automatically delivered to the folder. Set Auto-save IDs, Auto-forwards, Auto-responders or vacation mails, HTML signature etc

MANAGE MULTIPLE EMAILS IN ONE BOX
Pull all your mails from multiple accounts (e.g. Gmail, Yahoo! Mail, VSNL or POP accounts) in your one single mail account. You can choose the appropriate “sender” to keep it personal or professional, depending on your receiver.

OFFLINE ACCESS
The need to access your email offline is slim because wireless access is practically available anywhere. However, some desktop clients persuade themselves to stay with Outlook because they are allowed offline access.
OTHER REASONS
Desktop email clients take time to install and configure, and it will definitely not be worth installing a desktop email client in order to track one email account and it is tied to an OS (such as Windows, Linux or Mac). Syncing between multiple computers and devices can be problematic and it is a pain to learn how to use one more software program. Plus you might not want to keep your mail data on the computer you are using. Webmails need no installation as cloud apps are rendered in browser and not tied to any platform. Its easy to use, just log in to your web-based email account from anywhere, any device, without worrying about conflicts and synchronization, keep all your email data off your computer and entire email software updated automatically by the email service provider. And the Users & admin need to have the technical knowledge because the email service provider is responsible for maintaining them.

In conclusion, Webmail means more easy-to-use, convenient, flexible, efficient and effective email service and it caters to a number of needs a desktop client cannot meet.

Elementary OS – The Best Ubuntu

Elementary OS  is a Linux distribution based on Ubuntu.  (And Undoubtly The Best Linux Distro) It is the vehicle to introduce the Pantheon desktop environment, similar to how Linux Mint was the vehicle to introduce the Cinnamon desktop environment before Cinnamon was available in other Linux distributions.

The Elementary OS project aims to solve a number of perceived deficiencies in the established desktop environments, namely:
better global aesthetics by streamlining the user interface;
reduce software dependency by using core applications written in the C language or Vala;
diminish the need to access the terminal.
Although not contrary to the GNU philosophy, these deliberate design choices diverge from what most GNU/Linux distributions opt for: a freedom to set up and customize one’s own desktop environment. The Human Interface Guidelines of the Elementary OS project focus instead on immediate usability with a gentle learning curve, rather than full-fledged customization. The three core rules the developers set for themselves were “concision”, “avoid configuration” and “minimal documentation”.
Since its inception, Elementary OS has received both praise and criticism for its design, which closely resembles that of OS X both visually and in terms of user experience.
Pantheon’s main shell is deeply integrated with other Elementary OS applications like Plank (a dock), Midori (the default web browser) and Scratch (a simple text editor). This distribution uses Gala as its window manager, which is based on Mutter.

Best Linux Distro

Ubuntu

While not the first distro designed for inexperienced Linux desktop users, Ubuntu has established itself as one of the most well-known.

The distro features the home-grown Unity desktop, one of the most polarising desktop environments in the Linux ecosystem. But that’s about the extent of the project’s missteps. For the most part, the distro remains incredibly polished and sophisticated for all manner of users, but especially new converts.

Ubuntu has one of the easiest installation mechanisms. It doesn’t include proprietary codecs by default, but you can include them during installation simply by clicking a checkbox. This distro is released twice a year with regular Long Term Support (LTS) releases that are supported for five years.

OpenSUSE

One of the most popular RPM-based distros, OpenSUSE, has shunned its KDE preference and now looks consistent across desktops. However, it remains one of the leading users of (and contributors to) the KDE desktop.

Its all-in-one management tool YaST (Yet another Setup Tool) can handle software installation as well as system configuration and administration. It can be used to configure just about every aspect of the system, from appearance to hardware. While it’s convenient to have all these settings in one place, it can seem a bit overwhelming and intimidating, especially to new Linux users.

Fedora

One of the oldest Linux distros, Fedora can trace its origins back to the 1990s and Red Hat Linux. Fedora came into being when Red Hat decided to split its Red Hat Linux distribution into Red Hat Enterprise Linux and Fedora Project in 2003.

The distro aims to provide a completely free software system and has traditionally been pitched as an alternative to Ubuntu. Due to its focus on providing bleeding edge software and server-centric features, this RPM-based distro has often been described as suitable for advanced users.

Fedora’s ease of use has diminished since the introduction of the Gnome 3 desktop, a phenomenal departure from the traditional desktop metaphor. The Gnome project, however, has worked tirelessly to provide a better user experience to new users and this is evident in the latest releases.

Tracking and Navigation System

“GPS”

The Global Positioning System (GPS) is a space-based navigation system that provides location and time information in all weather conditions, anywhere on or near the Earth where there is an unobstructed line of sight to four or more GPS satellites. The system provides critical capabilities to military, civil, and commercial users around the world. The United States government created the system, maintains it, and makes it freely accessible to anyone with a GPS receiver.

The US began the GPS project in 1973 to overcome the limitations of previous navigation systems, integrating ideas from several predecessors, including a number of classified engineering design studies from the 1960s. The U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) developed the system, which originally used 24 satellites. It became fully operational in 1995. Roger L. Easton, Ivan A. Getting and Bradford Parkinson are credited with inventing it.

 

 

“GLONASS”

GLONASS, or “GLObal NAvigation Satellite System”, is a space-based satellite navigation system operating in the radionavigation-satellite service and used by the Russian Aerospace Defence Forces. It provides an alternative to GPS and is the second alternative navigational system in operation with global coverage and of comparable precision.

Manufacturers of GPS devices say that adding GLONASS made more satellites available to them, meaning positions can be fixed more quickly and accurately, especially in built-up areas where the view to some GPS satellites is obscured by buildings. Smartphones generally tend to use the same chipsets and since the versions used since 2015 receive GLONASS signals, smartphones using such chips receive GLONASS positioning information along with GPS. Since 2012, GLONASS was the second most used positioning system in mobile phones after GPS. The system has the advantage that smartphone users receive a more accurate reception of up to 2 meters.

Development of GLONASS began in the Soviet Union in 1976. Beginning on 12 October 1982, numerous rocket launches added satellites to the system until the constellation was completed in 1995. After a decline in capacity during the late 1990s, in 2001, under Vladimir Putin’s presidency, the restoration of the system was made a top government priority and funding was substantially increased. GLONASS is the most expensive program of the Russian Federal Space Agency, consuming a third of its budget in 2010.

By 2010, GLONASS had achieved 100% coverage of Russia’s territory and in October 2011, the full orbital constellation of 24 satellites was restored, enabling full global coverage. The GLONASS satellites’ designs have undergone several upgrades, with the latest version being GLONASS-K.

 

“IRNSS / NAVIC”

The Indian Regional Navigation Satellite System or IRNSS with an operational name of NAVIC (Sailor or Navigator in Hindi) stands for Navigation with Indian Constellation is an Indian developed Navigation Satellite System that is used to provide accurate real-time positioning and timing services over India and region extending to 1500 km around India. The fully deployed NAVIC system consists of 3 satellites in GEO orbit and 4 satellites in GSO orbit, approximately 36,000 km altitude above earth surface. However, the full system comprises nine satellites, including two on the ground as stand-by. The requirement of such a navigation system is driven because access to foreign government-controlled global navigation

systems is not guaranteed in hostile situations, as happened to the Indian military depending on American GPS during the Kargil War. The NAVIC would provide two services, with the Standard Positioning Service open for civilian use, and the Restricted Service (an encrypted one) for authorized users (including the military). Once the NAVIC is declared operational after checking the systems – space (satellites), ground (ground stations) and the user-end signal receivers, India will formally join a select group of nations owning their own Navigational Satellite system

Vehicle Tracking System

A vehicle tracking system is a Combination of hardware, software focusing on Wireless connectivity.

Several types of vehicle tracking devices exist. Typically they are classified as “passive” and “active”. “Passive” devices store GPS location, speed, heading and sometimes a trigger event such as key on/off, door open/closed. Once the vehicle returns to a predetermined point, the device is removed and the data downloaded to a computer for evaluation. Passive systems include auto download type that transfer data via wireless download. “Active” devices also collect the same information but usually transmit the data in near-real-time via cellular or satellite networks to a computer or data center for evaluation.

Historically, vehicle tracking has been accomplished by installing a box into the vehicle, either self-powered with a battery or wired into the vehicle’s power system. For detailed vehicle locating and tracking this is still the predominant method; however, many companies are increasingly interested in the emerging cell phone technologies that provide tracking of multiple entities, such as both a salesperson and their vehicle. These systems also offer tracking of calls, texts, web use and generally provide a wider range of options
