5 Things to Love about Windows 7

5 things to loveThe recent release of Windows 7 has seen much more good than bad – which cannot be said for its predecessor, Windows Vista. Even in the early stages of testing, many were impressed with the improvements Microsoft included in this relatively early upgrade to its OS, and many were hopeful that this time around, Windows would not be such a pain to use. And they were not disappointed.

Here are a few things you’ll love about Windows 7:

1. Faster boot up times

Vista was plagued with slow boot times, owing to its demand for high-end hardware in order to function smoothly. Windows 7, on the other hand, does more with less.

2. Lighter spec requirements

Speaking of hardware requirements and more for less, Windows 7 needs less power from your rig to function properly. This means that even hardware systems with bareback specs can run Windows 7 decently.

3. A new taskbar

The new taskbar is a combination of the old taskbar and the quick-launch icons of previous instalments. Frequently used programs are pinned as icons onto the taskbar, and can be used as both a launcher and as a preview for any running windows under that program.

4. File organization

The file system in Windows 7 is more unified now, and enables you to group similar programs together regardless of which hard disk it lives on.

5. Less nagging

One of the most annoying features of Windows Vista was the perpetual reminders about this and that mundane task. Windows 7 lets you configure the warnings to pop up only for issues you feel are important. UAC (User Account Control) also adopts this principle, eliminating that annoying Vista permissions window that popped up even for the most ordinary procedure.

Palindrome Consulting Participates in CABA CLE Program “What Attorneys Must Know to Adapt to an E-World”

imageThe legal system has been doing an overhaul of laws for Attorneys in dealing with the E- World. Many new rules went into effect in October and other laws become effective in March.

The Cuban American Bar Association created its October Breakfast CLE program on “Adapting to an E-World: What Attorneys Must Know in Applying the New E-Discovery Rules & How to Store and Manage Electronic Data.” Featured panelists were Hon. Beatrice Butchko, Circuit Civil Division, 11th Judicial Circuit, Aldo M. Leiva, Esq., Leiva Law, P.A. and Ilan Sredni, President of Palindrome Consulting. Vivian Cuevas CABA President and Partner at Broad and Cassel, Gina Beovides, Esq., Dade Legal Aid and CABA Executive Director Diana Powell organized the program.

The CABA CLE Breakfast on the E-World was well-received by CABA members.

Panelist Miami-Dade Circuit Judge Beatrice Butchko said, “Attorneys practicing in the Eleventh Circuit should be aware of the difference between the “eCourtesy Submission Service” and the “E-mail Service Rule” and “eFiling” procedures mandated by the Florida Supreme Court. In Miami-Dade County, the eCourtesy system is only a method of sending copies of filed and served documents to the judges. Attorneys are still required to file original documents with the Clerk of Court for docketing and placement in the official court file. Proposed orders may be submitted as well. Judges will file the original electronically signed orders and e-mail copies to the attorneys. Complete instructions for using the eCourtesy system are available on the Eleventh Judicial Circuit Court website. The Supreme Court is committed to achieving a fully electronic court system. Therefore, lawyers should refer to the Florida Supreme Court’s web page for links to the Florida Courts eFiling Portal as well as the latest Opinions and Orders regarding new electronic requirements.”

Cheap Firewalls: In the End, You Get What You Pay For

Part of establishing a proper security cordon around your business data is having the right hardware like a router/firewall to get the job done, and done well. Resorting to cheap and basic equipment might cut it for simple personal or home use, but it’s not ideal for business applications.

In business, protecting important information and data is paramount. This is why it is recommended for any sort of business to invest in a security system that will prevent any cyber-attacks that might be launched against you.

Unfortunately, though, it’s lost on many that a security system is not just made up of one single thing software, better staff, better hardware, et cetera. A good and solid security system is composed of several factors working together to create a virtual chain that envelops your business and keeps it safe.

And one of the most underestimated links in this chain is the router/firewall. Many businesses are content using the most basic and cheapest option available on the market, without realizing that their security chain is only as strong as its weakest link. And if you make do with a cheap router/firewall, odds are you’ll get what you pay for not much.

While basic routers might work fine for homes or individual users, it is a much different scenario when it comes to business operations where basic just doesn’t cut it. Plus, there’s more at stake with business data, so why take the risk with cheap routers that lack the proper security features?

With viruses, malware, and the cyber thieves behind them continuing to grow and evolve, it is important that you understand what it takes to protect your system and your data – and invest in the best solution. Remember that it can take only one incident, one infiltration, to bring your whole business down.

We realize that every system is different and every business has its own specific needs, so if you want to know more about getting the right router/firewall for you, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
