How to Upload pictures from iphone to social network

Since June 24, when my phone has become an iPhone, I'm almost all the time connected. So I took the opportunity to put some order in my digital life and social networks that I use: my blog, Twitter, Facebook and Flickr. These networks allow me to stay in touch with my relatives, and professional relationships throughout the world, or to tell "my life", or buzzer and to round up the crowds to my blog , or more futilely, to publish my photos taken with my iPhone.

To best manage my various communities, I reorganized my social networks, both to disseminate useful information and useless to everyone, to manage my personal and professional life, and finally to manage my time, because there is a another life outside the web. I also want to keep the fun and professional side in the use I make of my blog, Twitter or Facebook. After the umpteenth reorganization, including the use of Facebook: private, not private, pro, not pro, private, pro, I think I have found a use that suits me and will allow me to share with all as we love do.

My blog is my main social network is space on the internet that takes me more time and that also brings me the most satisfaction. In recent days I made some alterations. I especially enhanced by placing the communal aspect of the buttons so you can easily share my posts on Twitter or Facebook. I spent the comments.
I use it sparingly and this network is public, with a small number of followers who gradually grows with increasing exchanges between many twitteurs. It is also one of my favorite sources of reading when I'm in a queue, since my iPhone.

So far, I made a moderate use my Facebook account, the majority of my publications are made automatically from my Twitter messages. I have often hesitated between personal and professional contacts in this space. Now, I reserve my Facebook account just to my friends, my family or acquaintances found. So I deleted the few contacts that I had proposed. The reason is simple, weekend or holiday, it is a great way to keep in touch with my family via my iPhone, on the walls or by mail. Sorry for so few people that I removed, we find ourselves on other networks.

I have a Pro account, and I use Flickr to store all of my photos, even if I'm late. My photos are published privately or publicly. As I want to preserve my privacy, 99% of images are accessible only my family. This is not the space that I wanted to give preference to publish my photos publicly.

A good balance between public and private sectors on the Net

With this new organization of my main social networks, I think I found the right balance between privacy and public life. It remains my account Viadeo, which I still have not found the utility space and my YouTube, little used now. With my iPhone 4 camcorder and a future, it should become more consistent.

A website that features the most fun on an iPhone: the ability to take a picture and instantly publish on the Internet. In most cases, these are trivial things, or are funny rant, but always fun to share. In recent weeks, I fumbled to find the most effective way to publish these pictures online. I wanted it to be fast and that I can distribute these photos to my communities: Twitter, Facebook and Flickr. I hesitated for a publication on my blog, but finally I found it too pollute this space for an intake hearing ridiculous. I did not want to use spaces covered with ads as Twipic, the layout very poor and not personalized. Finally, I opted for a mini blog on Posterous. This service is very simple to configure, it is customizable and especially he knows interact with many other online services.

Posterous allows me to post photos from my iPhone, via Twitter, very quickly. These photos are arranged chronologically with a nice layout of the mini Posterous blog. Then, Posterous automatically publish my photos on Facebook and Flickr (for the public).
Advertising on Facebook allows you to place all my photos from my photos "Facebook". The association was not required because all my Twitter posts are published on my wall. It just makes it to my friends, more comfortable with the photo section, find and comment on my photos.
Why publish these photos on my Flickr account, because ultimately they are often futile? Firstly, because some of my relatives are not on Facebook and prefer the photos on Flickr. Then, these photos are a slice of life, it can be fun to find them in a few years, they are attached to a story or a memory. On my Flickr account, I can store those photos in albums and possibly get on my computer via blukr.
In the end, what may seem a gas plant is fully transparent to my readers, whether on Posterous, Twitter, Facebook or Flickr. Everything is automated, just a message on Twitter via my iPhone, to feed the four spaces on the web. All pictures are available, depending on the community in one place and easy to react.
I invite you to regularly consult my gallery of "slices of life in pictures" on Posterous or simply subscribe to my Twitter for real-time monitoring my shoots from my iPhone.

Bluetooth 4.0 formalized

The Bluetooth Special Interest Group (SIG) recently formalized the Bluetooth 4.0 and hopes to market the first products during the last quarter of this year.

Low power consumption and better performance

As we have explained in our columns, the big news of this standard is the ability to reduce energy demand controllers so they can be integrated in very small items (watches, sensors, etc..) Without an impact on the autonomy of these tools batteries often very limited.

Consumption is comparable to an RFID chip and the module uses a 2.4 GHz ISM band relatively impervious to interference. If you want better performance, this standard offers a bandwidth of 24 Mbps and the ability to communicate directly with wireless controllers
Rapid Adoption

Specifically, the Bluetooth SIG Qualification Program is officially open, allowing manufacturers to certify their products. The group in charge of this standard considers that this new version will be much more popular than Bluetooth 3.0, which really begins to be marketed.

The choice of a virus depends primarily on the use to which it will, and our needs. Whether a home computer, personal or professional needs are not identical and it will not always need to use armored protection. This choice depends on your level of knowledge on the subject, novices prefer to use an antivirus completely autonomous, while connoisseurs will no doubt have his hand placed on the choice of actions that will make the antivirus.
Using family
If your computer is intended to be used by the whole family, it is probably interesting to refer you to a version of 'all in one', and autonomous. If your little toddlers to block access to your favorite software, or worse, allow access to applications bad, imagine the problems! Here are some options available to you:

License: Free
  • Microsoft Security Essential
Out there a little over a year, this free antivirus by Microsoft aims to be accessible to all. It offers protection very easy to use. Icon green, all is well, orange or red icon: Beware! This tool is available via the Microsoft Download Center. It protects you from viruses and other malware with ease.
License: Free via the Microsoft Download Center
2. Personal Use
Through personal use, it will depend again on your needs and your knowledge. If you wish to use an antivirus completely autonomous, you will head to the family solutions above. If you would like a protection much more pointed, so you head to the professional solutions below. In either of these solutions, you can add one additional tools offered below, as an anti-spyware, a disinfection tool, or a separate firewall.
3. Professional use
As for professional use, the goal should be optimal protection! Although previous antivirus are quite suitable in the context of a common use of a computer, protect sensitive data may require more comprehensive antivirus. In addition to this you can add to your coverage of one or the other tools that are presented in the following point.
  • Antivir
A very powerful anti-virus, providing extensive protection of various hazards on the Web. Anti-virus, anti-spyware, anti-rootkit and other are among the appointments. Only drawback, an ad will appear during the updates, but it is worth the effort!

4. Additional tools
To protect sharp, you'll want to equip more specific software, such as anti-spyware, firewall, or a tool for disinfection. These handy software can be used as appropriate on a daily or occasional use. Note however incompatibilities! Install multiple Firewall do you use for example for anything, just overload your computer protection can cause serious slowdowns.
  • Firewall (Firewall)
While most antivirus programs have a direct firewall feature, just like Windows, there are also software specific to that task and do it well, among them:
- Comodo Firewall + Antivirus (Contains also a function Antivirus)
  • Antispyware
Cons spyware increasingly nomnbreux, nothing like a good software specially reinforced to eradicate them! The best known are:
- Spybot Search-and-destroy " (also has a detection module in real time)
- MalwareBytes (also detects most Trojans and rootkits)
- Ad-Aware Free (also has advanced anti-virus)
  • Common sense
How does it make sense? Well yes! Viruses are often not as smart as you might think, and in most cases it is our own fault that they come to infect our computers. Be careful where you click, and where you surf, do not open unknown or suspicious emails, much less their room attached! A strong safety comes first with a little common sense.
To surf, get a good antivirus, navigate with a browser and an updated antivirus. The faults are more numerous on Internet Explorer, if you have not already, I suggest you install Mozilla Firefox, a free browser and more secure.
After installing your new virus, the first thing to do is to update and complete analysis of your computer. In fact, if you already have the virus, they may not be detected directly by the virus. Remember to scan your removable media (USB drive, external drive, etc ...) and scan your computer regularly.
Now that all this is done, the virus had better take, you're good!
Good surf-secure!
