Dialup Internet access still a reality for large number of Canadians

TORONTO — The next time you get frustrated because a website refuses to load instantly, or a streaming video has to buffer for a few seconds, think of the surprisingly large number of Canadians still on dial-up.According to a few different estimates, there are hundreds of thousands of Canadians still travelling the information superhighway in the slow lane, who only get online after waiting for a series of bleeps, piercing shrieks and blurts of static to be belted out by their dial-up modem.‘It’s always a little surprising to see just how slow things load’And that’s just the beginning of their waiting.“It’s pretty dramatic,” says Ross Kouhi, executive director for the National Capital FreeNet, a donation-driven service that provides free or inexpensive dial-up access to about 3,600 users in the Ottawa area.“As you’re demonstrating it to somebody it’s always a little surprising to see just how slow things load.”The CRTC estimated that in 2010, there were about 366,000 dial-up customers across the country. The Convergence Consulting Group says residential dial-up subscriptions went from well over a million in 2007 to about 250,000 at the end of 2011. And surveys by the Media Technology Monitor suggested about three per cent of the population was using dial-up Internet in 2011.[np-relatedFor some Canadians in rural communities, dial-up is the only way they can get online. In 2010, the CRTC estimated that five per cent of the population had no access to high-speed Internet, with that rate nearing 16% in rural areas. But for others, inexpensive dial-up is simply the only affordable alternative to high-speed access, which can start at $30 or more — and it’s usually more — a month.Matthew Suffidy of Ottawa is a longtime Internet user, who figures he’s been online for nearly 20 years. But he’s stayed with dial-up access at home the whole time and currently uses the National Capital FreeNet.He makes plans to do any big downloading away from home and when he does dial in to the Internet, it’s mostly just to access email, check TV listings, search something on Wikipedia or visit a few other sites.He figures it was about 10 years ago that he started to notice web surfing was becoming sluggish with his 56K modem. A few years ago he found most surfing at home had become insufferable.“If I really need something I’ll wait for it but it’s true that for some (sites) you have to wait quite a while to start some of them up,” Suffidy says.“Certain sites have become more cumbersome to use with dial-up because of increased content, for example, embedded Flash. Sometimes that’s really a killer with dial-up Internet, if you have some kind of Flash content that’s trying to show you a (video or ad) — that’s going to totally destroy the connection.”With most of the population using increasingly efficient high-speed accounts, web developers have largely stopped trying to optimize their sites for slower connections.Sports fans on dial-up would have a hard time loading up the Toronto Blue Jays’ official website, which weighs in at a whopping four megabytes thanks to embedded video and a large number of photos and graphics. During a test, it took a couple of minutes of waiting for just the home page’s background to load, and several more minutes for other content to gradually pop up.Other graphic-heavy sites run by TSN and NHL aren’t much better, with the home page adding up to more than a megabyte of content — which could take about five minutes or longer for a dial-up user to load.Kouhi says there’s still plenty of demand for inexpensive dial-up access, although few rave about the service’s speed and the web surfing experience.“A lot of people who were making due with dial-up are starting to find it’s getting more and more difficult to use, so much of the content on the Internet is so rich and even though you think you’re looking at a simple web page, quite often there’s a lot of baggage behind it,” says Kouhi, adding that it takes just a few minutes on dial-up for him to grow tired of the snail-paced speeds.Some of the dial-up users he speaks with say they mostly stay off the web and only use email to connect with family and friends. But even email can be annoying on dial-up, especially when attachments are involved.Kouhi has a sister who lives in a rural area and until recently only had dial-up access. His family learned to leave her out of group emails when it came to sharing photos, he says.“You always have to remember to not send the big pictures to the one sister, to save her the grief, because she would say it would take her all night to download a big pile of photographs,” Kouhi says.“And she’d come back in the morning and they weren’t anything she wanted to see anyways.”The Canadian Press read more

How dwelling on problems could harm motherchild bonding

first_imgHalf of the women were then asked to do a task involving dwelling in detail on a personal problem and its effect on them.The other half were encouraged to think about a problem that had been important to them but that they had resolved.They were then observed again to compare how the task affected them, taking into account their previous level of responsiveness.Dr Michelle Tester-Jones, the lead author, said: “We hope these findings will be useful for health visitors and midwives when working with new mums, to help understand why mums might be finding interactions with their baby more difficult and support them in building a close and responsive relationship with their baby.“We understand that being a new parent can be difficult, and we think that mums are doing a great job.“The purpose of our study was to help identify thinking styles that might contribute to more or less sensitive parenting.“The good news is that there are strategies to help manage rumination, and our research suggests that changing rumination can reduce potentially negative interactions with baby.”Dr Heather O’Mahen, another member of the research team, added: “We know that mums are often getting by on a small amount of sleep.“It can feel tricky for mums to try to stick to a focused approach when they’re so tired. It can be especially important at this time for mums to talk through their worries in this specific and focussed way with other people she trusts.“We also urge mothers not to be too hard on themselves.” Mothers who over-analyse their problems could be harming their chances of bonding properly with their newborn babies, psychologists have concluded.A study by experts in “mood disorders” at the University of Exeter found that those who dwell on problems and blame themselves can have poorer-quality relationships with their babies.They found that some of those who tended to “ruminate”  – dwelling on problems in a negative way rather than thinking of constructive solutions  – appeared to have less eye contact with their baby, were slower to comfort them if they became distressed and even spoke to them in a more flat tone The purpose was to help identify thinking styles that might contribute to more or less sensitive parentingDr Michelle Tester-Jones baby The researchers analysed how the mothers and babies interacted before and afterCredit: Blend Images/Alamy Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp?

Ubuntu TV unveiled at CES

first_imgCanonical has just taken the wraps off a new product, and it’s headed straight to your living room. Say hello to Ubuntu TV.That’s it you’re looking at above. What the company has actually brought to CES 2012 is a concept television running a tweaked version of its Ubuntu Linux operating system — re-tooled for use on set-top boxes and connected TVs. The hotly-debated Unity interface is front and center, and everything is designed to be couch-surfing friendly.Apart from acting as a PVR, custom Unity lenses have been added for specific media functions: listening to music and watching movies, browsing YouTube, checking the programming guide, and searching for content. Options to rent or buy movies, shows, and music are displayed beneath search results, and you can also check out trailers before pulling the trigger on a purchase.As for why Canonical decided to make the move to TV, CEO Jane Silber says that manufacturers are growing increasingly wary of walled garden approaches. They’re looking for a neutral alternative, and that, Silber says, provides ample opportunity for Canonical to step in and woo OEMs with Ubuntu TV. Initially, they’ll be targeting just two major markets: the U.S. and China. Later, of course, they’d happily push Ubuntu TV to additional countries if the demand is there.They’ll be providing the software for free, just as they do with their existing operating systems. Unfortunately, Canonical hasn’t said yet whether or not it’s going to make the Ubuntu TV download available to end users. Even if they don’t, you can almost guarantee that the Ubuntu developer community will whip something up that offers a very similar experience.More at PC Prolast_img read more

QA Jim Spanfeller Wants Entwined Consumers

We feature video on just about every page of our sites. We are now creating 3 to 5 original video segments a day for The Daily Meal. We see this as moving towards a fully “entwined” content offering. By entwined I mean consumer control on steroids. So consumer control is classically defined at what you want, when you want it. Entwined takes that a step further and suggests what you want (topic), when and where you want it (time and place shifting); and how you want it (text, video, data, community and so forth).______________________________________________________________________________________________________________Jim will be joined by Forbes SVP of Digital Advertising Mark Howard and Thrillist’s President of Sales Todd Anderman for the Baker’s Dozen session at min day.

Tablets are not mobile; smartphones clearly are mobile. We see about 10 percent from tablets and around 5 percent from real mobile. For the tablet, publishers can look at it two ways—or maybe I should say 2 1/2 ways. Same experience as their core sit which, by the way, is what the tablet, or at least the iPad, was designed for—surfing the web. Or they can produce a tablet version of their sit, which to date has not proven all that profitable for most, though it does allow the end user to make use of the swiping functions of tablets. Or they can build specific apps around sub-sections of their sites, which is what we have done so far with our Best Dishes app. These tend to be very closely aligned with the Smart Phone apps that have been built.

General Electric Plans NetZero Energy Home by 2015

Citation: General Electric Plans Net-Zero Energy Home by 2015 (2009, July 16) retrieved 18 August 2019 from Explore further ( — Using solar panels, wind turbines, appliance monitoring, and on-site energy storage, General Electric has a plan to enable homeowners to cut their annual energy consumption (from the electric grid) to zero, in some cases, and at least minimize consumption in others. GE is piloting the technology this year, and hopes to commercialize the system by 2015. Californians bask in solar energy The GE Net-Zero Home Project encompasses a variety of technologies, as well as consumer incentives. The most expensive part of the project involves on-site power generation through solar panels or wind turbines, where applicable. As GE executives explained during a recent symposium at the company’s Global Research Center in Niskayuna, New York, a 3,000-watt solar panel array could be enough to supply all of a home’s consumption, and cost about $30,000 to install.GE is also converting its appliances (for about $10 per appliance) to be able to communicate with a home’s smart meter, allowing consumers to find out how much energy individual appliances use. The information will hopefully allow users to control appliances by using them during off-peak times (peak times are usually morning and early evening), encouraged by time-of-use pricing plans. Homeowners would also use an energy monitoring device called Home Energy Manager, which costs about $200-250. The Home Energy Manager is designed to control and optimize on-site energy generation and consumption, such as by running the dishwasher or clothes dryer at times when the solar panels are operating, and not during peak times.As part of the project, plug-in electric vehicles would be charged during the night. The vehicles and other storage batteries could also be used to store electricity for use during peak times. Overall, a net-zero energy home would cost about 10 percent more than the conventional kind, but would help homeowners save money in the long run, as well as make the electricity grid more efficient. If the system is easy to use and offers financial incentives for customers, GE hopes that it can encourage involvement where everyone can benefit.via: CNet© 2009 PhysOrg.comlast_img read more

EU warns Spain against imposing Gibraltar tax

first_img Top ways to honor our heroes on Veterans Day Commission President Jose Manuel Barroso discussed the spat with Spanish Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy by telephone Monday and agreed that a commission fact finding mission should go to the Gibraltar border area as soon as possible and examine the border control and movement of people and goods questions, the commission said in a statement.Barroso expressed hope that Spain and Britain would address the issues in line with their EU membership.Last week, Barroso talked with British Prime Minister David Cameron.The row stems from Gibraltar’s construction of an artificial reef, which Spain says affects its fishermen. In apparent retaliation, Spanish police enforced border control checks on cars entering Gibraltar, creating massive tailbacks.The dispute has led to a sudden souring in diplomatic relations. Spain says it will take all legal measures to defend its interests, while Britain pledges to stand by Gibraltar.On Monday, a British Royal Navy warship arrived in Gibraltar for what Britain’s government said was a planned naval exercise in the Mediterranean.Spain ceded sovereignty of Gibraltar to Britain in the Treaty of Utrecht in 1713, but has persistently sought its return.

Britain and Gibraltar are not part of the Schengen agreement.Besides floating the idea of charging people entering and leaving Gibraltar 50 euros ($66) to provide compensation for the losses that the fishermen face, Margallo has also talked of investigating Gibraltarians living in Spain for possible financial fraud.Gibraltar’s chief minister, Fabian Picardo, said the reef protects fish stocks from being over-exploited. He said Sunday that that “hell will freeze over” before Gibraltar removes the reef, and he has accused Spain of behaving like North Korea.Gibraltar has accused Rajoy of using the reef dispute to deflect domestic attention away from Spain’s severe economic crisis and allegations of corruption involving his ruling Popular Party.____Associated Press writer Juergen Baetz contributed to this report from Brussels.

LoanDepot Pulls IPO On Eve of Offering

first_imgLoanDepot Pulls IPO On Eve of Offering in Daily Dose, Headlines, News, Origination Initial Public Offering loanDepot 2015-11-13 Scott_Morgan On the day before it was set to go public, loanDepot Inc., announced it would delay its initial public offering amid volatile market conditions.According to a statement filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on Tuesday, the lender was planning to offer 26.4 million shares of its common stock on Friday, valued at $16 to $18 per share. The move was expected to raise $475 million for the company, which was to be valued at $2.6 billion.According to NASDAQ, the company planned to offer as many as 30 million shares.But on Thursday, the company announced that it will postpone the biggest IPO of the week, due to rough conditions in the market. Conditions, have, of course, been stormy on Wall Street to say the least. On Thursday, the Dow Jones Industrial Average dropped 254.15 points, or nearly 1.5 percent. Over the preceding week, it has dropped a total of 2.3 percent.LoanDepot was founded in the darkest days of the recession in 2010, billing itself as an antidote to big banks that disrupted the home loan market. It has grown into the second-largest non-bank lender in a field that now claims 40 percent of the mortgage market.The IPO, for which the company filed in October, was well-anticipated, but given the recent underwhelming performances of IPOs among financial-technology companies, perhaps it is unsurprising that the lender reacted to recent stock market news with cold feet.CEO and Chairman Anthony Hsieh, however, was considerably more optimistic a month ago, when the IPO-to-come was announced. “Our vision is to deliver a diversified lending model sustainable in all market conditions,” he said then. “We look forward to leading the development of marketplace lending through the introduction of new products and services that provide credit solutions for borrowers with attractive returns for investors.”Somewhat ironically, the Dow Jones industrial Average was higher when loanDepot pulled the IPO than it was during the week it announced it would be going public.LoanDepot has not said when it will make a new IPO, nor whether it will offer the same shares or per-share values.center_img Share November 13, 2015 548 Views last_img read more
