Tech Terms: Internet Marketing

Internet marketing, or online marketing, refers to advertising and marketing efforts that use the Web and email to drive direct sales via electronic commerce, in addition to sales leads from Web sites or emails. Internet marketing and online advertising efforts are typically used in conjunction with traditional types of advertising such as radio, television, newspapers and magazines.

Specialized Areas of Internet Marketing
Internet marketing can also be broken down into more specialized areas such as Web marketing, email marketing and social media marketing:

  • Web marketing includes e-commerce Web sites, affiliate marketing Web sites, promotional or informative Web sites, online advertising on search engines, and organic search engine results via search engine optimization (SEO).
  • Email marketing involves both advertising and promotional marketing efforts via e-mail messages to current and prospective customers.
  • Social media marketing involves both advertising and marketing (including viral marketing) efforts via social networking sites like Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and Digg.

Tech Terms: Internet Phone

Internet phones, or IP phones, use packet-switched VoIP, or Internet telephony, to transmit telephone calls over the Internet as opposed to the circuit-switched telephony used by the traditional Public Switched Telephone Network (PSTN). The advantage to Internet phone calls is that unlike regular long-distance calls, online phone calls are free — there’s no fees beyond the cost of your Internet access.

Also referred to as online phones, an Internet phone can be a physical telephone with built-in IP technology and an RJ-45 Ethernet connector instead of the RJ-11 phone connector found in standard phones, or it can be a voice-capable computer that uses VoIP hardware such as MagicJack or software like Skype. This flexibility makes it possible for IP phone calls to function as Internet phone-to-phone, Internet phone-to-PC, PC-to-PC or PC-to-phone calls.

Tech Terms: Windows Hello

Windows Hello is facial-recognition and fingerprint-reading biometric authentication technology in Windows 10 that enables users to protect and access their desktop, laptop, or mobile device without needing to enter a password.
Windows Hello debuted with the release of Windows 10 in 2015, but it is still only available on a small number of laptops and desktops, including the Surface Pro 4, Surface Book and select models from Lenovo, Dell, HP and other manufacturers. An external web cam developer kit from Intel is also available for users with older computers that want to add Windows Hello functionality.

Getting Started with Windows Hello
To configure Windows Hello in Windows 10, users need to first select the Windows 10 Start Button, and then select Settings > Accounts > Sign-in options. Under the Windows Hello settings in Sign-in options, users can choose face, fingerprint or iris as long as the device supports one or more of these capabilities.

After selecting one of these options, you’ll simply need to move your face in front of the device’s screen or press on the fingerprint sensor to quickly log in and access your device.
A Closer Look at How Windows Hello Works. Once configured, Windows Hello is designed to identify a user’s face, iris or fingerprint and automatically log them in to their PC after they’ve powered on the PC and their face is in view of the computer’s camera (or their finger is on the fingerprint sensor).

The camera used by Windows Hello is not a standard web camera; instead, Windows Hello requires a specific RealSense depth camera module designed by Intel and infrared sensors. The camera uses advanced technology to identify users and can distinguish between an actual user and a picture of the user to prevent hackers from attempting to trick the biometric authentication.

In addition to making the login process much more efficient, Windows Hello can also be used to quickly make purchases through the Windows Store as well as authenticate or authorize payment in apps that support Windows Hello.

Tech Terms: Windows 10

Windows 10 is the latest release of Microsoft’s Windows operating system and the successor to the underwhelming Windows 8 (and Windows 8.1).
Initially codenamed Windows Threshold, Windows 10 debuted on July 29, 2015, following a “technical preview” beta release of the new operating system that arrived in Fall 2014 and a “consumer preview” beta in early 2015.

With Windows 8 suffering from mostly negative reactions by both enterprises and consumers, Microsoft chose to eschew going with the logical next iteration of Windows, Windows 9, opting instead for the name Windows 10.
Windows 10 Drops the Unified OS Interface

While Windows 8 focused on presenting a unified operating system interface for all Windows-powered devices, from desktops and laptops to smartphones and tablets, Windows 10 presents more of a customized interface that recognizes the device’s hardware and adjusts accordingly based on whether a mouse and keyboard are used or a touchscreen.

Windows 10 also reincarnates the Windows 7-styled Start button and Start menu that were dropped in Windows 8. The functionality for these features has been updated in Windows 10 with Smart Tiles and other dynamic capabilities.

Tech Terms: Shopping Cart

A shopping cart is a piece of software that acts as an online store’s catalog and ordering process. Typically, a shopping cart is the interface between a company’s Web site and its deeper infrastructure, allowing consumers to select merchandise; review what they have selected; make necessary modifications or additions; and purchase the merchandise.

Shopping carts can be sold as independent pieces of software so companies can integrate them into their own unique online solution, or they can be offered as a feature from a service that will create and host a company’s e-commerce website.

Tech Terms: Assortment Intelligence

In electronic commerce (ecommerce) terminology, assortment intelligence refers to a set of tools and software used to help online retailers track a competitor’s inventory and product supply. The software, in real-time, uses artificial intelligence, data-mining, and image-recognition algorithms allowing retailers to view, compare and analyze the differences between inventory.

Assortment intelligence reporting tools can then help a retailer determine what products competitors have — and do well on — and decide if they should add these products to an existing catalog.
Compare with Assortment Optimization
Assortment intelligence may also be referred to as assortment optimization; however, the focus of optimization is to ensure a retailer finds the optimal set of products to be carried and the correct levels of inventory for each product.

Tips & Tricks: Move open windows between virtual desktops

Virtual desktops let you segregate your open apps into discrete areas—literally multiple, virtualized versions of your PC’s desktops. Switching between open virtual desktops is easy enough using Task View (the button that looks like two panels, one over the other, in the taskbard) or Windows key + Tab, while Alt + Tab jumps you between open apps across all desktops. There’s also a way to actually shift an open app from one virtual desktop to another if you’d like to shuffle things around.

First, head to the virtual desktop housing the app you’d like to move to another virtual desktop, then open the Task View interface. Just click-and-hold on the app you’d like to move, then drag it to the desired virtual desktop at the bottom of the screen. You can also drag it to the +New Desktop option in the lower-right corner to create a new virtual desktop for the app.
