    I chose the article Thunderbolt Networking supports peer-to-peer Mac connections. This article talks about how the thunderbolt 2 is now available and able to work with late 2013 Mac Book pro retina and the 2014 Mac. Thunderbolt is a program that allows two computers to directly connect to each other without first having a network. This type of connection is call a peer-to-peer network. Peer to peer networking was taught on objective 1 of chapter 1 page 358.

    The article I found was about peer-to-peer networking, it is called “Thunderbolt Networking supports peer-to-peer Mac connections”. The article talks about how mac computers are able to connect through a network and are able to transfer files over the network instead of having to save them all to a disc or thumb drive. Making is easier to either share files or if you were to get a new computer, to move your files. ch. 9 objective 4, talks about how peer-to-peer networking and how you are able to search and remotely access files through windows to windows or windows to macs.

    5 great things you can do with a Google Chromecast
    Google Chromecast, is a USB flash-drive stick-sized device that enables you to send anything you can see with the Chrome Web browser to your HDTV. Unlike “media extenders” like Roku that only show internet video channels like Netflixs. You can plug this little device in and it allows you to watch any TV show or movie you can access from the internet and watch them in Hi-Def on your HDTV or Apple TV. However you still cannot access cable TV programs unless you subscribe and have the password.

    Watching international TV shows such as Downtown Abby on BBC can also be viewed on the large screen. Thanks to Web proxies (which work by providing an Internet Protocol (IP) address in a country where the content is available)and VPN’s through Chromecast.

    Your favorite Videos on your local or network drives can also be as large as life. Though there is no media-server support as such all you have to do is open a video file in Chrome with the command “Control-O”. By Converting your DVD collection into MP4 videos you can create a video library that now lives on a Network Attached Storage (NAS) device.

    Video conferencing, viewing presentation Skypeing or Google+ Hangout, conversations can now take place in any size room as long as a modern TV will fit in it.

    I found this article interesting because it is new technology that show the infinite networking possibilities using a USB device to access a wireless network capable of replacing projectors and Roku, while enabling on demand viewing of all internet content. It would be ideal for small homes or apartments. Businesses could use it to save on replacement of and replacement parts for AV equipment.

    Jason Perlows’ article is one that can relate to basically everyone. If you have an email, you need a password. If you get your music from iTunes, you need a password. Even certain website require you to make an account just so they can spam you with emails. long story short, there are several passwords that need to be established. Having to remember such an abundance of codes and patterns and where they go to can get stressful and confusing. Perlow suggests that there needs to be an easier to way access personal accounts while remaining protected. The Heartbleed bug was introduced in 2011 and made open to the public in 2012.

    In visualizing technology they talk about how important it is that your passwords cannot be easily compromised by the public. They must not be obvious and should contain capital and lowercase letters along with numbers. This makes it not only harder for programs to access your personal info, but it also makes it difficult for hackers. Having the same password for everything is not recommended, which is why having many different accounts can get confusing.
