Most business organizations today are quickly adopting the use of custom ERP software solutions because as opposed to the common use of manual procedures and legacy applications, ERP programs are cost-effective and efficient. The Enterprise Resource Planning program is a system of integrated applications that are designed to automate different department/office operations (product planning, development, manufacturing, sales and marketing) to a single database.

Nevertheless, not all ERP software will meet to every requirement of your organization. Therefore, when deciding on the ERP software to adopt, you need to choose the most reliable one as far as your business needs and processes are concerned. In turn, here are the two types of ERP systems:

Off-the-shelf

These are systems easy to implement due to the fact that they are developed out of the experience of other organizations (user groups) other than yours. From the discussions on how each of those companies’ best use the system, you acquire information on how best to adopt the system for your business.

Custom ERP software

With custom ERP, the system is developed based on your company’s experience. A programmer gets to design the ERP system in accordance what exactly you want the software to be able to do and ideally, the process it should follow in order to do perform and facilitate your operations.

WY COMPANIES CHOOSE CUSTOM ERP SOFTWARE
There is a greater chance of a company meeting its user requirements when it goes for custom-built ERP software other than a generic system solution. This is so despite the high upfront costs and time consumption to get the system started. You can always start small and add the essential layers as you go by and in the end meet, the target software for your business. Plus, it is also a way to spreading the initial expenses throughout.

Custom ERP software is also designed to fit your business processes instead of the business fitting into it, this is somehow relieving since as far as training of the company’s staff is concerned, there will be less of it. All they have to do is make little adjustments to coordinate with the system.

A good example of such approach is Tesla, who carefully evaluated all pros, cons, and risks and decided to build custom ERP solution having above mentioned benefits in mind. Tesla CIO Jay Vijayan calculated the costs of SAP implementation in “millions of dollars” and a year to perform all the required integrations. Tesla managed to achieve same functionality within 4 month and much lower budget with custom built ERP. As the result, they’ve got independence from third-party vendor and Enterprise Resource Planning System that is tailor-made for their established internal business and manufacturing processes.

HOW MUCH IT WOULD COST TO BUILD CUSTOM ERP SOFTWARE
It is obvious that the cost of custom ERP software development would depend on what you require, the number users and its complexity. For instance, if you are going for a sophisticated custom ERP system, you might not find complete designs that fulfill your needs. Therefore, you will have to incur extra cost for complimentary products to ensure the software fully functions.

Nevertheless, the general cost of the ERP system will range between $25k to 75k. The extra incurring costs for future modules or top-up services and tools would go for $5k to 25k.

RISKS OF DEVELOPING CUSTOM ERP SOFTWARE
The solutions and services that custom ERP software development is meant to provide, is usually not in box therefore, it requires a lot of time and finances to initialize the design resulting to high upfront fee.

Since development of a custom ERP software is on basis of your requirements, to get a high-quality system that maneuvers around future changes easily despite it being a first-time project, you require a developer with experience. Such resources are hard to come by as you are outsourcing.

In addition, your contact with the developer who initialed the system needs to be consistent. This is because they would understand the system better during the development cycle: design, testing, QA/ testing, and training. This may be hard to do especially if the developer is not reliable.

Despite that, custom ERP software helps to save an enormous amount of money in long-term perspective. You may ask how is that possible. Each company counts on continued growth, including the number of employees, field force, and offices. In many cases, a bigger number of users means the continually growing expenses for the licensed ERP solution. Enterprise support packages are often sold as extra services and are way more expensive than support from the custom software development provider whose support is often included in the contract. Also, it is worth to mention that your organization will be the only one supported for the product which means better and faster communication.

So, the expenses for the existing user licenses, new licenses, and support of the off-the-shelf solution is growing exponentially and completely overlap custom ERP software development costs in a couple of years. In its turn, custom ERP software will justify its high upfront costs, because your enterprise won’t be locked to the provider, will own the solution and all the data stored in the cloud as the result, and won’t pay for licenses when new user accounts will be needed.

CUSTOM ERP SOLUTIONS EXAMPLES IN DIFFERENT INDUSTRIES
From the advantages of the existence of a software that can meet your business requirements and solutions, most companies have been seen heading to custom ERP system development for the management of their operations. Below are a few of such companies:

Oil and Gas Companies
Oil and gas companies have a great plus with custom ERP software development but, it is usually a tragedy if the system does not support the operations efficiently. Therefore, when going for a tailored system for such a massive company more considerations are put in place other than the obvious; meeting the user needs.

Custom ERP software for gas and oil companies should most importantly have applications to handling the environment safety. Energy companies are known to be hazardous to their environment and if not taken care of it would cause damage and to some extent shutting down of the organization. Therefore, the system should be able to provide data to the technicians as warnings in case of any threat so that they can mitigate the risks.

Also, other than facilitating the operations of the company, a custom ERP software development should be able to open up opportunities for high profit returns investments for the business. That is, it should have a cost management application too.

Finally, oil and gas fields are known to be really massive and some are usually in dense remote areas but since it’s business, every asset should be accounted for. In turn, a custom ERP software with good networking is essential to integrating and managing all the company’s operations regardless of the location. Such location difficulties are curbed with high-tech optimization tools to managing all labor and resources throughout.

Manufacturing companies
With manufacturing firms, custom ERP system are saviors when it comes to saving costs, eliminating office paperwork, tracking business performance and improving customer experience. This is made possible by integrated custom applications platforms for management of its operations.

Nevertheless, managing a national or to some extent international business operations can be a challenging task. A centralized custom ERP software can however, bring light to all your businesses processes as it enables management of creation of product, marketing and availing of the product across all the decentralized outlets. In addition, it integrates all that data thus incorporating workflow and control automatically.

Education (schools)
Schools that are going for complete computerization of their functions and processes have custom ERP system development to opt for. A great number of schools have been seen heading to this direction with use of highly tailor-made programs to handle the school management and they are known to be very successful.

Whether it is nursery/ kindergarten, high school or colleges, custom ERP systems have proven to provide efficient management of the institutions.

WHAT ADVANTAGES WILL YOU GET IF DECIDE TO DEVELOP CUSTOM ERP

A custom ERP software is more of a prototype system whereby you can start designing the most basic and important features and function that you have in mind then later, during testing and maintenance, you can add other essentials bringing you to a very efficient software.
With a custom-tailored system, you are likely to achieve the solutions or attain the services you are going for from a software seamlessly.
The staff is usually at an advantage of comprehending how the system works easily because it was designed in accordance to the business practices and language. In turn they have little to adjust on their side.
Custom ERP systems are usually flexible in terms of future technological or even business changes. There is always a capacity for incorporating any developing trends.
Unlike the offshore system, you get to own the custom ERP system and its design is made specifically to meet your needs. Therefore, you need not to wait for feature requests and enhancements as you are in complete control of the system.

In summary, the basic things you need in hand while planning to adopt custom ERP system is you have to budget for high upfront fees. You will require a team of tech-experts from programmers, quality controllers, database engineers to designers and probably more. Then there is patience needed too, developing software that uniquely fits your business, just like Rome cannot be built in a day. It will require a lot of work which will consume time months or even year.

Nowadays, the user experience delivered by a software application determines its popularity and profitability. The user experience delivered by an application depends on its accessibility, functionality, performance, usability, and security across various devices and platforms. Hence, it becomes essential for enterprises to focus on the quality and user experience of their applications throughout the software development lifecycle.

Many enterprises nowadays implement formal software testing strategy to launch a high quality software application. Also, many businesses nowadays test the software continuously and under real user conditions. But several entrepreneurs still do not realize the importance of testing in the software development lifecycle, and the benefits of testing the software early and continuously. They are still sceptical about the benefits of software testing and believe several software testing myths.

Decoding 7 Common Myths about Software Testing

1) Testing Increases a Software Application’s Time to Market

While developing a new software application, enterprises explore ways to beat completion by reducing its time to market. The QA professionals have to invest both time and effort to evaluate the software’s quality under varying conditions and according to predefined requirements. That is why; many businesses believe that the software testing process increases the product’s time to market. But each enterprise has several options to get its software tested elaborately without increasing its time to market. A business can easily reduce testing time by automating various testing activities. Also, it can implement agile methodology to unify the coding and testing process seamlessly.

2) Testing Increases Software Development Cost

An enterprise has to deploy skilled testers and invest in robust test automation tools to evaluate the quality of the software comprehensively. That is why; many entrepreneurs believe that software testing increases software development cost significantly. But an enterprise can reduce software testing cost in a number of ways. It can opt for open source and free test automation tools to reduce both testing time and cost. Also, the software testing results will help the business to generate more revenue by launching a high quality software application, in addition to avoiding maintenance and correction cost.

3) Test Automation Makes Manual Testing Obsolete

The test automation tools help QA professionals to execute and repeat a variety of tests without putting extra time and effort. Hence, many enterprises explore ways to automate all testing activities. The entrepreneurs often ignore the shortcomings of various test automation tools. They forget the simple fact that test automation tools lack the capability to imagine and make decisions. Unlike human testers, the test automation tools cannot assess an application’s usability and user experience precisely. Nowadays, a software application must deliver optimal user experience to become popular and profitable. Hence, an enterprise must combine human testers and test automation tools to assess the quality of its software more precisely.

4) Elaborate Testing Makes an Application Flawless

While testing a software application, testers perform a variety of tests to evaluate its accessibility, functionality, performance, usability, security, and user experience. They even identify and repair all defects and performance issues in the software before its release. The test results also help enterprises to decide if the software meets all predefined requirements. But the user experience delivered by an application may differ according to user conditions and environments. The testers cannot identify all bugs or defects in an application despite performing and repeating many tests. Hence, the business must be prepared to get the bugs or issues found in the application after its release.

5) Developers are not required to Test the Software

An enterprise must deploy skilled QA professionals to get the quality of its software assesses thoroughly and effectively. But it can always accelerate the software testing process by making the programmers and testers work together. The developers can further assess the quality of application code by performing unit testing and integration testing throughout the coding process. Likewise, they must perform sanity testing to ensure that the software is functioning according to predefined requirements. Agile methodology further requires enterprises to unify software development and testing activities to deliver high quality software applications. The project management approach requires businesses to test the software continuously by a team consisting both programmers and testers.

6) Testing Process Commences after Software Development Process

The conventional waterfall model allows business to start the software testing process after completing the software development process. But the conventional software testing model does not meet the requirements of complex and cross-platform software applications. A steady increase is being noted in the number of enterprises switching from waterfall models to agile methodology and DevOps. As mentioned earlier, agile methodology required businesses to test the software continuously, along with making the programmers and testers work as a single team. Likewise, DevOps requires businesses to unify software development, testing, and deployment processes. Hence, the testers nowadays start testing an application from the initial phase of the software development lifecycle.

7) No Need to Deploy Skilled Software Testers

Many entrepreneurs still believe that the only task of a testing professional is to find bugs or defects in an application. The even do not consider software testing requires skill and creativity. The misconception often makes businesses get their software tested by random people. An enterprise can involve real users in the software testing process to assess the application’s usability and user experience more effectively. But it must deploy skilled testers to get the software evaluated under varying user conditions and environments. The skilled testers understand how to identify the defects and performance issues in the software by creating many test scenarios. The even produce elaborate test results to facilitate the decision making process.

There are three basic types of software, although these do have their own subsections, as will be discussed later:
1. Commercial software, purchased with a licence for one or more computers. This generally is coupled with some form of support and regular updates to patch errors etc. Sometimes a new version of the software is offered at a reduced rate as “update”. This type of software is generally relatively expensive and is often designed to cover specific industrial purposes. The big exception is the various sets of “office” software, which are designed for use in the commercial environment, but can naturally be equally used for various tasks at home. The most common application in this category is, of course, text editing. Most of the other classic “office” applications, such as calculations and data bases are only of limited use in the domestic environment, although they will be used in some cases, particularly now that the more computer-literate generation is growing.
2. Simplified or “lite” versions of the commercial software. These are intended principally for small businesses and enterprises that do not need the complete capabilities of, say, a 3-D modelling system, but must be able to view such documentation and prepare compatible drawings. Again, the “office” environment was a long time not represented in this sector, but has recently started to be available. These will also come with a single or multiple, but limited licence and now mostly be registered with the manufacturer.
3. Free or “open source” software. This is designed for general distribution and has no particular limitations as to use, except that it may not be changed in any way. Naturally, such software has its limitations, but may serve very adequately for many purposes. Practically all types of software are to be found in this category. One notable application distributes the software to read its documents freely, but charges for the software to produce the documents. This policy is arguably the motor behind its ride to a position as industry standard, since you can always be certain that he receiver can decipher whatever is sent, without long discussions about compatibility and versions. Clearly, there can be no piracy of products that fall into the third category, except for changing of the code or reuse of the code for other purposes, but this does not appear to be a major issue at the moment, so we will concentrate our attention on the first two categories.
Both of these categories contain software that is copied and distributed either free of charge or for a nominal fee. Naturally, the full versions of the software are preferred, but the simplified versions are also to be found, depending on what is available.

Types of Software Pirate

This puts our software pirates into two categories of their own:
1. Those who knowingly use a copy of software “borrowed” from work or supplied by friends, who probably acquired it by the same means.
2. Those who prepare copies of software from an original and sell it at a low price through internet auctions or on market stands. Their customers may, in many cases, be unaware that the software has been pirated and simply be pleased to acquire a software package at a bargain price. Some will be quite well aware of the actual source, but still prepared to take this means of saving money.

Composition of the Groups:

So who is to be found in these two groups?
1. This group is very widely ranged and consists of school children, people practicing at home with the company software, various private persons with an interest in computers who will try anything that is free and, possibly, very small businesses. Many schools will supply their students with copies of software licensed for the school to enable them to complete homework or learn to use it for technical subjects. A student finishing a technical school with little or no knowledge of the technical software used in their industry will not easily find employment, so a blind eye is turned in many schools to this practice. Schoolwork is often required to be written on computer these days, and again, this is only really possible if some form of text software is available. Those who use company software at home to play with or for their children to complete homework are also a large group. The computer has become a part of our lifestyle in the western hemisphere, and many people are interested in the possibilities opened by the modern generation of powerful number-crunchers. The days of mainframe computers costing hundreds of thousands of dollars is not gone, but the small computer in a network has taken over in many areas, so the professional software that would earlier have required a mainframe connection and a whole basement full of equipment will now run happily on a home computer. There may be a loss of speed, but who cares? The vast majority of these people know full well that what they are doing is not allowed, but consider this as a very minor matter, and would laugh at any suggestion that they should purchase the software officially. The few companies that also do this are saving money that they probably do not have, despite being aware of the risks.
2. The group of people who copy software and distribute it for sale as being genuine are working simply for profit, taking advantage of the simplicity of the process and the high prices of genuine software. The general public is not aware of the penalties for this type of action and is often unsure about recognising the genuine article. Other items in the consumer market are available from many manufacturers as basically identical products, so why should this not be the case with software? Very many are simply duped into buying what they see as a cheap alternative to a brand-marked product.

Costs of Software Piracy:

So what are the real costs to the software companies?
In most cases, school and college students would not be in a position to pay the costs for the expensive commercial software they use in technical subjects, and the schools and colleges are not in a position to supply this to them free of charge. Most schools have licences for software to be used on the premises, but this is not available for the students at home. Theoretically, they will use the computers at school to complete work and practice, but this is generally not possible due to a lack of resources, or classrooms locked because of vandalism. The only way to solve the problem is for the schools to simply distribute the software to their students on the basis of it being only for their use. There is no licence and no direct upgrade possible. Generally, although illegal, this system works quite well. Schools try to copy upgrades and patches for their students, mostly successfully. The snag to the matter is that we educate people in that this is perfectly acceptable practice, despite it being illegal. No-one would think of insisting or even checking that drop-out students erase the software and no longer use it, but this is probably fairly well assured by the fact that they have dropped out in the first place.

It is very frustrating to see Windows 7 booting extremely slow on a laptop or computer. The same agony is intensified when that happens with a newer laptop. Why Windows 7 freezes on startup and how this problem can be fixed? To find out how, safely perform these tweaks and fix Windows 7 freezing issue:

Cause – 1: Antivirus Behind Win 7 Freezes: Temporarily Uninstall Your Antivirus Program

Although this might take some of your time, but it is important to do this computer maintenance at this stage in order to fix the problem you are facing.

Most of the times due to resource-intensive antivirus programs Windows 7 freezes on startup. These programs not only take too long to load themselves but also make the entire system slow to boot.

You can test this cause only by temporarily removing your antivirus software. Although I would not like to take name of any particular software, but it has been noted that the AVG causes freezing issue due to which Windows 7 starts slow. If, after removing the antivirus software, your computer has started to boot faster and without any freezing, then simply decide to switch to some other anti-virus software.

Cause-2: Registry Errors: Fix Windows 7 Registry With Some Effective Registry Cleaner

The Windows 7 consists of a very important component called Registry which is the key to all programs and services running on your system. The registry component contains immense volume of registry data important to run Windows 7 faster at start as well as throughout the computing process.

If your Windows 7 freezes on startup then it is highly recommended you run an effective scan through a registry cleaner and PC optimizer software. Read definition of Registry at end.

Cause 3: Windows Live ID Services: Can You Afford to Uninstall/Remove these Services?

It has been seen in many PCs that due to the Windows Live ID services, especially starting with the Windows startup cause freezing during the boot process. If you are not a regular user of these services then through Control Panel option in the Windows 7 you can uninstall them easily to fix Windows 7 freezing.

Cause 4: Too Many Startup Programs–Disable Some or All Programs

When your computer starts, there are some softwares installed in your computer which are set/configured to start with the startup process. This puts a load during the boot and a computer running Windows 7 freezes on startup and delays the entire process.

To disable these programs you can press Start > Type Msconfig in Search or Run > Startup > Choose Disable All or Select Services to Disable them individually.

Cause 5: Low RAM Capacity – Consider Upgrading RAM

If you are running Windows 7 on your old system then make it sure it has at least 1 GB RAM space available. However, it is better you upgrade it further to 2 or 4 GB. In case the low capacity of RAM is causing Windows 7 to freeze on startup then you will have to upgrade it in addition to scanning your system registry regularly.

Cause 6: Solid Colors: Do Not Choose the Solid Colors for Desktop Personalztion

Windows 7 has excellent dekstop personalization options available which can be accessed through using the “right-click” option of the mouse on desktop. There is one settings which some users enable to set solid colors for the background picture. If this is the case then it is recommended you choose a simple desktop background image. You can do this in the following way:

Desktop > Mouse Right Click > Personalization > Desktop Background > From Options Unselect the Solid Colors Option.

Cause 7: Aero Themes: Disable if These Themes are Behind Windows 7 Slow Boot

There is one tremendous option in Windows 7 which is called the Aero Themes. Try to disable this option if your Windows 7 freezes on startup. As we know desktop is the first thing that comes up after the boot is completed, there is needed time to load heavy aero themes. Thus disabling these themes might speed up Windows 7 boot time and end freezing issue as well.

Cause 8: Desktop Widgets: Try to Disable These Widgets

As the Windows 7 loads it places all the things in que while it is still booting. What happens is that due to too many startup services, sometime Windows 7 freezes on startup. The desktop widgets such as Clock, Temperatures, etc are also known to cause this freezing issue in the computers.

Cause 9: Super-fetching Disabled? Try to Enable it

In some Windows 7 PCs there occurs freezing in the boot process because the super-fetching option is disabled. You can enable this service to fix this issue in the following way:

Start > Search > Regedit > Now locate this subkey: HLKM\ SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\ Control\SessionManager\MemoryManagement\ PrefetchParameters.

In the right side, double-click EnablePrefetcher.
Change the value to 2 and click OK.
In the right side, double-click EnableSuperfetch,.
Change the value to 2 and click OK.

Now exit the registry editor and restart your system to let these settings take effect. After using this carefully, it is highly likely you will reduce freezing during Windows 7 startup.

Cause 10: P2P Streaming/Other Suspicious Programs Causing Freeze at Start

It is quite possible that some streaming programs might be causing Windows 7 to freeze during the startup. If that is the case then it is wise to remove such programs.

Cause 11: Outdated Drivers

If your system is quite old then it might have some of the drivers outdated. It is wise to update all your computer drivers to enhance the boot-up process of your computer.

Following these guidelines will hopefully solve your problem. It is recommended you do not miss scanning Windows registry.

Definition of Registry: Registry is the Windows database which stores, in the form of registry keys, information about all the computer programs, softwares and hardwares.

With the advent of tablets these days, both desktop and laptop computers have taken a backseat. Tablets are small, handy, and do just enough things to satisfy most computer users. Desktops and laptops still have their place. Most desktops have all the features you want to take care of such things as word processing, Internet, and games.

Laptops definitely still have their place. They are a computer, that has a lot of advantages over the desktop. What are some of these?

As the prices of computers in general, and laptops specifically his come down, many laptop manufacturers have pack a lot of features into their products that allow them to compete with desktops.

Now days it’s not unusual to find a laptop with four gigs of on-board RAM. That’s enough to run just about any software out there today. They also, COM with quality graphic cards, sound cards, and at least 500 GB of hard drive space. That means that you can use your laptop at home, as a desktop replacement, and still take it with you when you need to. You can’t do that with a desktop

In addition, most of the better quality laptops have excellent graphics cards. In addition they also have quality optical drives, which means you can run your movies and videos just about any place you want.

Unlike a desktop, you can take your laptop to work, use it to accomplish your tasks, and take that all home with you. With a desktop, you have to find another way of transferring information from work to home.

When you go on vacation, you’ve got to leave that desktop at home, unless you want to pack up everything and set it up where when you get your vacation spot. With a laptop, you can take your computer with you. The kids can watch movies in the back while you’re traveling. Any work that you have to do that you must take with you, goes with your laptop. In addition, you can load all those photographs that you take a long vacation right there on your computer. Most places have Wi-Fi, so it’s easy to send those photographs back to those you want them to see.

Finally, your desktop is a slave to the outlet in your home. Laptops have batteries and those batteries are rechargeable. You can recharge those batteries anywhere where you can find a lexical outlet. That means that there is no power available, you still have a computer.

These are just a few of the advantages that the laptop has over the desktop.

Where are all the Great Desktop Search applications?

If put to the test, net Search programs, would not measure up to this Search.
Net and Desktop Search are from opposite ends, of the search spectrum.

Their PR / propaganda on the Web may look impressive.
Lots of Search Engine sites and blogs, are the work of paid hacks or staff stooges.
They make finding honest search news and reviews, difficult.
Their product is complex, over burdened with option creep and lacking.

Personal search -vs- Internet search

————————————

Internet search finds ranked results, ie those who tech or pay their way to the top.

(Net Search, is Not Search, more like Marketing)

People primarily use Internet search, to find information that is new to them.

With Personal search, users seldom, want to find information that is not theirs.
Why rummage around on C drive or Net, presenting readme.txt, advertisements
and a slew of other unwanted information.

With personal search, I want every occurrence. And I want it in the same order.
(I occasionally, run a differences between the two sets of search results)

-They are re-indexing all the time. This one does not. It is a “Search” Engine.

Ready to go immediately.

-No background processes, running unnoticed. This app will never snoop or tattle.

-On my production machine, I do not want any internet connections.

If you are on the net, you can be hacked.

No firewalls, no popup blockers, no indexers and the resultant slowdown.

I want a search, that also works, in this secure, high speed, environment.

-They brag a lot, about how fast they return results. The Internet is relatively slow

and they count the hits not displayed on the screen. “Displaying 1-8 of 2,345 results”

Dumb to count, let alone search for something that is not going to be displayed.

On a human scale, anything less than 10 seconds is fine.

-This search, searches at 20 Million characters per seconds and will just get faster

as the processor speeds increase.

-Net search companies, have to focus on security because of all the hacking.

Restricting access, frustrates searchers, to the point, they quit using it.

Desktop Search, is the most important program on any computer.

The Big Feature (RANDOM)

————————

This app can select a random video file. (2 external drives with 500+ videos)
Then select a random start point.
Then play a short segment in Slow-Motion.
Then freeze on the final frame for a few more seconds.
Then another and another….

It can do something, almost as interesting, with text.
It can pick a random start point in any text file
It can then display from that point on, in Large text, with
a pause behind each character printed and each line end.
(create your own scrolling text screen of local legends etc)

Random takes out the monotony and exposes you to your digital info.

For the average user.

———————

Why would anyone want to store anything other than plain text and screen captures.
People seldom run a report more than once. Do a screen capture and keep that.
Same with word processors and other obscure formats. Do a screen capture or
video those screens, along with a cut and paste of the text, then ditch them.
Needing the originating software, to see these oddballs files, is a real pain.

Systems that handle every format, are prone to failure and eventual loss of data.

Great for Backup / Recovery

—————————

I just recently reloaded windows(1), My stuff(2) [search and backup of jpgs
and txt]. My video camera software(3), loaded the internet software(4)
and change a few net settings(5).
That was it, I had my original system back.(Virus free to boot)
(I keep detailed notes along with a few screen captures, of these recovery steps)
For my bookmarks – favourites, I have screen captures and saved their homepage text.

With this tool, people can manage any number of multimedia files.
So they can just shoot, video, download, screen capture and cut & paste
to their hearts content.

Desktop Search is a must, for the Video data deluge.
DVD storage is inexpensive, less than 5 Cents a Gig.
Put a copy of the Search on each DVD video backup and view on any PC.
(When data is portable, it becomes yours.)

Start and stop anywhere in a MPEG clip. (non linear editing)
No mess, with video snippets everywhere. Just the originals.
Be out capturing great action, while others are busy editing.
(no editing software required)

Skip ads, confidential, offensive or explicit material, by playing up to the segment,
then starting up again after it. (Video in this playback, to eliminate completely)

Instead of those tiny, picture thumbnails for video.
Play the first 5 seconds, from each of your video files.
(way way more informative than those blurry first frames)

For those Burst-of-Still pictures, that digital cameras do.
Set the display time to 1/10 second, for play back. See them, like you shoot them.
(Displays 700+ oldie photos in 35 seconds, full speed – full screen)

This program, starts searching immediately (Instant Search) Some word processing
programs try to read in the entire file. Causing delays when starting up.
It had to be fast, so it could, run background copies of itself.

Suppose you are developing a desktop application. You would definitely pay attention to it’s overall and detailed design. Things like button design, loading spinner , icons, fonts and other element should never be forgotten about. They all make your design a whole. This is the same for users. Never forget that users like well stylized apps too.
