match the brightness of the projector to your audience and room size. Large rooms and audiences require high bulb strength brightness. (Projector bulb strength brightness is measured in ANSI lumens or lumens).
October 20, 2005: You should be scared of spam-bots missions that complete orders with free e-mail account addresses this Halloween.
Products in your estore are at risk and ‘Free Email Accounts’ are often an indicator. Free email accounts are often used in fraudulent activity such as stolen credit cards, bank accounts and company credit information.
If you own a website with an estore, beware of users with free email address accounts. Many emails with the intent to fraud use ‘Free Email Accounts’ such as hotmail, yahoo and gmail. ‘Free Email Accounts’ are easy to setup and easy to dispose of after completing a spam-bot mission.
Fact: Not all orders from free email accounts are fraudulent. But, fraudulent emails, overwhelmingly come from ‘Free Email Accounts’ .
‘Free Email Accounts’ have been such a problem with business to business sites that many B to B websites won’t accept free email accounts to transact business.
At minimum: Verify that the email address really goes to the intended recipient of the product ordered. This will at least assure you that you are taking to a real person and not a ‘bot’ running ‘scripts’ on your estore or product inquiry form.
There are over 1 billion malicious ‘bots’ on the web that do nothing but deliver spam services to every email and website order form findable on the internet.
Here’s why: An unscrupulous programmer who asked not to be identified explained the logic behind the huge influx of spam: “When I create one bot, it goes on a mission 24-7. That bot will find at least one thing to exploit every hour of every day. I don’t just make one bot and neither do my friends.”
Bottom line: Verify before working a lead or shipping a product. It could be worse than a waste of time.

Going wireless is easy with a Tech Travel Agent© from Rentacomputer.com. Just tell them what you want to do wirelessly. Your Tech Travel Agent© will provide you with a quotation for everything you need without all the technical jargon.
You probably knew you could rent wireless notebooks, but did you know you can also rent wireless projectors, routers and printer servers?
Consider the convenience and added benefits of renting today’s wireless technology. Wireless rentals have a huge advantage over wired networks, especially for short term projects where the internet and rental computers, printers and projectors are deployed.
Wireless networks are easier and faster to setup than wired networks. Wireless devices add flexibility and save time. With wireless you can move your laptops, projectors and printers around and still maintain connectivity. Best of all, you don’t have to run cat5 wires to routers, computers, printers and switches.
Here are some of the wireless products that are commonly rented for company projects:
Wireless Router Rentals
A wireless router is a networking device that connects computers to the internet. With a router you can share an internet connection between multiple computers on the network. Note: The internet cable needs to be connected directly into the wireless router.
Wireless Access Point (WAP) Rentals
A wireless access point is a networking device that allows wireless-equipped computers and other devices to communicate with a wired network. A WAP may also be used to expand the range of an existing wireless network.
Wireless Adapter Rentals
A wireless adapter is a device that adds wireless network functionality to a computer or laptop. There are three types of wireless adapters. PCI Adapters are for desktop computers. As the name suggests, they can be installed in an available PCI slot. PCMCIA Adapters, also known as PC Cards , are for notebooks. Installation is as simple as pushing the card into an available PCMCIA slot. Lastly, there are USB Adapters. These adapters are compatible with desktop and notebook computers.
Wireless Print Server Rentals
A wireless print server connects a printer to the wireless network, allowing any computer on the network to wirelessly access the printer at any time.
Wireless Projector Rentals
A wireless projector allows a computer user to wirelessly connect and display the computer video on a screen. All you need is a wireless adapter in your computer or notebook and the software that comes with the projector. Today’s advanced wireless projectors allow one computer to connect to multiple projectors AND multiple computers to connect to a single projector. If you want to have a really impressive presentation, consider renting two or more wireless projectors. Bring your multimedia presentation to the next level by putting on multiple unique screens of your data and video presentation. For example: have animation on one screen and data on another!Another benefit of wireless projectors is having the ability to have multiple presenters displaying their presentations right from their own wireless laptop or computer. Consider a corporate meeting with presentations from finance, operations, sales and marketing managers.

Businesses do silly things that actually hurt their SMB business.
The fixes are easy and the cost is small, but the penalty can be great if you violate Google’s search engine rules.
If you own an SMB and have a website, make sure you read on or direct your web person to read this.
1. Lack of Keywords:
This is probably one of the most critical area of site optimization for search engines. In order to be found, you must have the keywords people will use to find you. Choose the right keywords and potential customers will find your site. Use the wrong ones and your site will see little, if any, traffic.
Does your website spam?
Here are 3 examples that Google’s search engine spiders consider spam”
A. Word Spamming: When you use the same words over and over again (called word spamming) the search engines may downgrade or remove pages or ban the entire website.
B. Hidden Keywords: Do not try to hide your keywords or keyword phrases by making them invisible. For example, the keywords appear as the same color as the background of the web page. The text appears invisible to humans but not to search engine spiders. This is another version of the item above (relying on hidden text). Do not try to hide your keywords or keyword phrases by making them tiny. Setting the text size of the keywords so small that it can barely be seen does this.
C. Bad Keywords: The keyword doesn’t have anything to do with the page topic. However, since the keyword is popular, they think this will boost their visibility. This technique is considered spam by the search engines and may cause the page (or sometimes the whole site) to be removed from the search engine listing.
3. Slow loading home page
If your page is slow loading, search engine spiders may never see your links. Make sure your website loads fast by keeping elements to a minimum.
4. No Keywords in Title or No Title at All
Each page on the website should have a unique title and the title should contain a keyword or keywords.Review your website, make sure there is a title, check page for content, find best keywords used on the page and include in title tag.
5. No Keywords in ALT Tags, Meta Tags or no Tags on website
Each page should utilize meta description, meta keywords and alt tags on all images. Make sure you use your keywords on all your meta and alt tags.
6. No Site Map
Sitemaps help search engine spiders crawl more of your site. Make sure you place a link to the sitemap in your footer or site navigation.
7. Dead Links, Broken links, Links to slow loading pages
Links that don’t work or are slow loading affect how much a spider can crawl your website. Download Xenu and check your site for broken links: http://home.snafu.de/tilman/xenulink.html Fix your broken links right away, before the next crawl of your website. Broken links can only hurt your website.
8. Poor Outbound to Inbound link Ratio
If you have too many links pointing outside your website domain and not enough pointing in your website search engine results will not improve. Increase inbound links and reduce outbound links. One of the easiest ways to increase inbound links is to submit to directories. Read more about directories here: http://www.xponex.com/Products/xponex100.asp Also news stories and press releases with links to your site can be very effective. Read more about press releases here: http://www.xponex.com/news_view.asp?nId=38
9. Using “FREE” or “Deep Discounted” web hosting.
In some cases search engines spiders will completely avoid indexing content from free or deep discounted web hosts by skipping the hosts entire ip range. Make sure your website is being hosted by a US based, reliable hosting company that answers the phone. Cheap web hosting companies are fully automated and don’t answer that phone. If you website is down can you get in touch with your hosting company? Find a site in the $250/yr range for hosting your business website. US Recommendation: http://www.xponex.com/hosting.asp
10. Improper Website NavigationImportant pages need overt proof for search engine spiders. Navigation links help search engines find your most important pages. Always include your most important ‘top’ pages in your website navigation. Note: Navigation should appear on all pages on website.Invest a little time to learn the proper techniques for increasing search engine visibility and your net traffic will increase.

Web & Media Services
When Renting or buying an DLP or LCD Multimedia Projector you need to match the brightness of the projector to your audience and room size. Larger rooms and audiences require higher bulb strength brightness. Projector bulb strength brightness is measured in ANSI lumens or lumens. You also need to take into account the primary use of the projector, full motion video vs. static data.
Projectors range from around 650 to 5000 lumens in brightness. Presentations where the lights are on are the most desirable, because you can interact and demonstrate off-screen with your audience.
Another consideration is portability of the projector. Lower lumen units are the most portable. As a general rule, as you increase bulb strength brightness, you reduce portability. High lumen projectors are larger and weigh more than low lumen projectors.
Less than 1000 lumens -good for low ambient light, presentations.
1000 -2000 lumens -These are the most popular units being sold and rented today. Very practical and will work with some ambient light.
3000 lumens -Much Larger unit than the1000 to 2000 lumen units. Good for audiences of less than a hundred with ambient light.
5000 lumens – For audiences of 100 or more under brighter lights
6000+ lumens – For large events like conventions, conferences and tradeshows where thousands of people need to view a presentation at the same time.
LCD Projectors vs DLP ProjectorsLCD stands for Liquid Crystal Display and DLP stands for Digital Light Processing.
LCD is an analog-based display technology employing 3 fixed panels of pixels (one panel each for the RED, GREEN, & BLUE components of an NTSC video image). LCD also delivers a somewhat sharper image than DLP at any given resolution. LCD projectors work better for static Microsoft PowerPoint® presentations or detailed financial spreadsheets. DLP works better for full motion video.
LCD projectors usually produce significantly higher ANSI lumen outputs than do DLP projectors with the same wattage lamp.DLP projectors have a much higher pixel “fill factor” than LCD. DLP-based projectors generally produce a much smoother looking image compared to LCD-based projectors of similar resolution.
DLP-based projectors have a high contrast ratio and efficient use of light. Contrast ratio is figure of merit that compares the ratio between the brightest white and the darkest black that a projector can produce. Generally, a better contrast ratio leads to better black levels and, therefore, a more realistic presentation of darker scenes in movies and TV programs.DLP projectors consists of a single chip rather than three in LCD projectors. DLP projectors tend to be more compact because they have fewer components. All of the current 3-pound portable projectors on the market are DLP projectors. Most LCD projectors are five pounds and up. The higher lumen models are significantly heavier and larger. High lumen projectors are not considered portable.
Should I buy or rent a projector?
LCD and DLP projectors are available for rent or purchase from Rentacomputer.com. So should you buy or rent? That depends on how often and where you need the projector. If your presentation is in another town, lugging a projector thru airports can be a high risk hassle. You can easily damage a projector by dropping it out of a luggage compartment. Never check a projector thru baggage at airports either. Baggage handlers will treat your expensive projector like a suitcase.
If you are planning on using a projector at a fixed location over a long period of time, then purchasing a new projector is a good idea. Never buy a used or refurbished projector unless it comes with a new bulb. Bulbs are very expensive. Projector bulbs cost between $200 to $500 for the more portable units. They cost up to $2000 for the higher end projector units.
