07/25/2014 How to Dispose of a Cell Phone

Most of us know when to discard, recycle, or compost the items we're parting with, but it seems that many of us are at a loss as to how to dispose properly of our cell phones when we no longer need them. If you are unsure of how to get rid of an old phone, this article will guide you through the process.

Before actually disposing of your phone, it is important to remove your information from it, as phones tend to allow access to sensitive, personal information. The easiest way to rid your phone of this information is to perform a factory reset. If you wish to transfer information from the old device to your new phone, simply do so before clearing the old one.

07/24/2014 How to Recover Deleted Texts on Android Phone

If  you have accidentally deleted some or all of your text messages by mistake, fret not! You can get them back with a 99% chance of success, but there' is one ingredient that is most important: time! If you have deleted your SMS inbox you have to act quick, because while the messages are recoverable until the portion of memory on which they are saved is rewritten, the longer you wait the higher the likelihood of getting new text messages, app updates or who-knows-what saved to the same location, obliterating them forever.

On the same morning that the Israeli military dropped thousands of leaflets on residents in the northern Gaza Strip warning them of an impending military strike and urging them to leave their homes, thousands of Israelis in Tel Aviv, Jerusalem and elsewhere received on their smartphones what initially appeared to be official text messages.

07/07/2014 What is Load Balancing?

PageGate has a new Load Balancer module that enables installations with multiple PageGate Servers running, a way to route new messages between servers, depending on each servers real-time performance.

The PageGate Load Balancer module receives performance data from multiple running PageGate Servers, to determine the best server to route new messages to.

Each Load Balancer module can support between two and four PageGate servers.

Each PageGate Server can send performance data to up to four Load Balancer modules.

The Load Balancer module acts primarily as a router for messages coming into PageGate's GetASCII interface. However, other interfaces can be used by using a primary PageGate Server to accept messages, and then using the Load Balancer to route messages to secondary PageGate Servers, that will handle message delivery (this setup would require a minimum of three PageGate Servers).

07/01/2014 How Text Messaging Is Helping Victims Of Violence

When a young Malaysian woman, Xin-Ci Chin, was attacked by two men as she entered her car in Kuala Lumpur two years ago, she barely escaped an unknown fate by fighting her abductors and jumping from a moving vehicle.

The episode, which she detailed in a harrowing Facebook post, had a silver lining. At a point in her career where she was looking for new opportunities anyway, it led her to team with a friend, James Khoo, and create a simple but ingenious app that could help other women in the same situation.

Since launching a year ago on iOS and Android, Watch Over Me has attracted 140,000 users all over the world, with the majority so far located in Southeast Asia.

07/30/2014 Text Messaging Is Not Ruining Grammar

It is not surprising that many teachers, parents, and young people themselves feel concerned about this constant exposure to non-standard written English. It seems quite plausible that frequently seeing to - too written as 2, or people written as ppl, might mean that these kinds of spellings could start to creep into students formal writing.

Fortunately, in recent years, the research has returned a fairly robust conclusion.
