Just want to wish everyone a Happy New Year! What a year 2013 was. I have changed jobs 2 times and my father passed away suddenly in August. I have gone through the grieving process and it is still hard to think that he is gone, but he lived a full life. I am very glad that I knew him and there is not better father. 

That being said, let's look at what this year will bring in the way of technology:

  1.  New android devices like the Samsung Galaxy S5, Samsung Mega, and other Samsung android devices. Motorola is still trying to be relevant under the ownership of Google and create the perfect Android/Google device.
  2. Microsoft is still struggling to be relevant with their phone and have made great strides in that arena, but I don't think they will gain that much traction in the US as the iPhone and Android devices continue to be strong contenders.
  3. PC or Mac, that has always been the question for the last 25+ years, but due to the popularity of Android devices I think that Linux may just become the Desktop alternative that I always knew it could be. There are many distributions that are ready for prime time, but look at Linux Mint, Bodhi, Fedora 20(Which I am really enjoying right now) Enlightenment, PCLinux and Ubuntu to name several of the distros that are worth looking at. We also have to look at Google's ChromeOS which is based on Linux even though it truly just presents a browser to the end user.
  4. I also believe that the era of the PC will return as more users want power and look to a desktop or notebook computer to do their Power User tasks, but will get these things in a much smaller format like the Intel Nuc (Next Unit of Computing) and the AMD Fusion. This way all of the power of a giant tower PC, will be in a form factor that can be mounted on the back of a monitor and truly be space saving.

What are your predictions for this year as we embark into making new technology relevant and do you know what new tech is out there. Please join my blog and let me know your ideas as to what will make it and what will not.

<p>I am hoping to appeal to the many people out there who are trying to improve their skills as well as try and improve their standing and marketability in the world of IT. I started going to school again and this time to get a degree in the field I am already in. I have been told by people that I work with that certifications and even a degree in IT don't mean that much any more. When I got laid off from my job back in February and was told that I could work until the 15th of March, I had a job that I started on the 4th of March. This was working for a small networking company that sells connectivity as well as service. Hosted PBXs was also another product they sold and serviced. 6 months later I have an opportunity of a lifetime to go to work for a large global company in their Global Monitoring division and have been really learning alot and doing large scale implementations. So, I am back to the question of:</p> <p>Is it necessary to have a degree or certifications in IT anymore to get good jobs and be a skilled/valued employee?</p> <p>I believe that it depends on the person. I like to learn and in the IT field it is an ongoing task. I also want to broaden my skills in the field that I have chosen. I will never know everything in the broad range that is IT, but I will know systems and software as well as IaaS, SaaS and some of the the other more modern acronyms as well as the whole networking pieces. Am I an expert, maybe by the time I have my new job down, I will be in SNMP and Global monitoring. I look forward to being more than just a Jack of all trades, Master of none. I look forward to be able to say that I have learned many disciplines and have broad knowledge, but also that I am an expert in my field which is monitoring.</p> <p>Let me know your thoughts and please give me suggestions on how I can improve my site.</p> <p style="text-align: center;"><div style="float:right; clear:both; margin:5px;"> <!-- Paste from here... --> <script type="text/javascript"> <!-- google_ad_client = "ca-pub-7205588988374918"; /* BlogmeThis Ads */ google_ad_slot = "8121633314"; google_ad_width = 500; google_ad_height = 250; --> </script> <script type="text/javascript" src="http://pagead2.googlesyndication.com/pagead/show_ads.js"> </script> </div></p><div class="item_footer"><p><small><a href="http://blogmethis.com/index.php/education-is-key-samsung-galaxy?blog=2">Original post</a> blogged on <a href="http://b2evolution.net/">b2evolution</a>.</small></p></div>

Hey out there. What do you think of my Blog? I am looking for input from anyone out there. I am working on trying to put more content on here without going months between posts. This is really hard with work, yoga, biking, school, time with the wife, friends and sleep.

I am just now starting school again looking to improve my vocation by getting some long overdue certifications. I am starting up this week online with WGU (Western Governor's University) which is both inexpensive and self-paced. The fact that I can work on classes at my own pace is the big draw.

I would like to take this time to write about one of my favorite pieces of Open Source software, Virtualbox. If you have a newer PC that was made in the last 5 years with multiple cores, Intel i3, i5, i7 as well as the AMD Athlon X2, Phenom X3 - X4 and now the FX 8Core, then you are most likely able to use virtualbox to run almost any OS available.

Virtualbox has many different virtual machines that you can create from Windows to Linux, BSD to Mac OS/X and even other machines like Haiku.(Open Source BeOS clone)

I have been using this software now for the better part of 3 - 4 years, since before Sun was purchased by Larry Ellison and crew. Oracle has done a good job of supporting this software since the acquisition. Try the software and let me know what you think in the comments section below. I will try and add some basic tutorials in the future on how to use the software and setup you own virtual machines.

This is a new site that is connected to my Alienyak website and will contain the following stuff:

  1. Technical Blog for the more mature users - People who are NOT new to technology, but may be afraid to do try and experiment with settings, new software, Internet, etc.
  2. Blog about the happenings on the Alienyak website and what new ideas we have for our sister site.
  3. Develop a tehnical support column to discuss issues with all things related to hardware, software, websites and technology in general.

My goal is to try and make technology as easy as possible for the end user. You can expect to find tips and tricks here as well as methods of keeping your PC, notebook, netbook, tablet free of virus's and spyware/malware.

Please le me know what you think of the site as it gets updated over the next few months. You will not be required to join the site, pay any dues(at the time of this writing) or donate anything that you do not want to. I will do my best to keep the site FREE.
