Comparison between Internet Fax Services

release date: May 24, 2021
Comparison between Internet Fax Services
Internet faxing uses the same principles as facsimile transmission, but it uses a Web interface instead of a fax machine. It can be a flexible, inexpensive option for transmitting documents. Internet fax services usually assign a fax number to each person who signs up for the service. people can send faxes to this number, and customers can send faxes via e-mail without using a fax machine. To send a fax through an Internet fax service: • The sender attaches a document to an e-mail message. The document can be a scan of a paper document, or it can be created in a program like Microsoft Word. • The sender addresses the message to the recipient's fax number, followed by the name of the faxing service (for example: 18005551234@emailfaxes.com). • The service translates the attachment so that a fax machine can read it. • The service sends the data across the phone line. • The recipient's fax machine decodes the data and prints the fax. To receive a document from a traditional fax machine through an Internet fax service: • The sender dials the fax number that the service has assigned to the recipient. • The fax machine translates the data and transmits it over the phone line. • The service receives the data, translates it into an image file and sends the image to the recipient's e-mail address. • The recipient opens the em-ail message and the attachment and views the file. As getting cheap internet fax service is important, I tried to look for cheap internet fax service that can fax to any country worldwide and can also use PayPal as it is safe payment than credit card. Unfortunately, I could not find cheap fax service for international destination. All internet fax services offer only cheap services to the free zones countries such as usa and Canada. I could not find cheap service to international destinations. Maybe the best of my search for faxing to international destination was FAX.PLUS that allows also paypal. But when I tried to subscribe to basic plane using paypal, paypal asked me to give them permission to access my registered credit card, and I refused that and so I could not subscribe. I will divide web sites that I had look to their internet fax services in the following groups 1-Part1: Websites that accepts paypal payments and supports faxing to international countries. Some of these are: • Gotfreefax • fax.to • Faxfresh • PamFax.biz • Faxzero • FAX.PLUS 2-Part2: Websites that accepts only credit/debit card payments and supports faxing to international countries • Hellofax • J2 global services vendors. It includes Metrofax, myfax, smartfax, efax, trustfax, rapidfax and fax.com 3-Part3: Websites that supports faxing to usa and Canada only • Nextiva • FAXAGE • FAXBetter In this report, I will compare the internet fax services according to the cost for sending fax to United Arab Emirate. I will assume that I have three pages to be sent to any fax number in UAE.

The Gentrification of the Internet

The Gentrification of the Internet
How we lost control of the internet—and how to win it back. The internet has become a battleground. Although it was unlikely to live up to the hype and hopes of the 1990s, only the most skeptical cynics could have predicted the World Wide Web as we know it today: commercial, isolating, and full of, even fueled by, bias. This was not inevitable. The Gentrification of the Internet argues that much like our cities, the internet has become gentrified, dominated by the interests of business and capital rather than the interests of the people who use it. Jessa Lingel uses the politics and debates of gentrification to diagnose the massive, systemic problems blighting our contemporary internet: erosions of privacy and individual ownership, small businesses wiped out by wealthy corporations, the ubiquitous paywall. But there are still steps we can take to reclaim the heady possibilities of the early internet. Lingel outlines actions that internet activists and everyday users can take to defend and secure more protections for the individual and to carve out more spaces of freedom for the people—not businesses—online.

An Internet in Your Head

release date: May 04, 2021
An Internet in Your Head
Whether we realize it or not, we think of our brains as computers. In neuroscience, the metaphor of the brain as a computer has defined the field for much of the modern era. But as neuroscientists increasingly reevaluate their assumptions about how brains work, we need a new metaphor to help us ask better questions. The computational neuroscientist Daniel Graham offers an innovative paradigm for understanding the brain. He argues that the brain is not like a single computer—it is a communication system, like the internet. Both are networks whose power comes from their flexibility and reliability. The brain and the internet both must route signals throughout their systems, requiring protocols to direct messages from just about any point to any other. But we do not yet understand how the brain manages the dynamic flow of information across its entire network. The internet metaphor can help neuroscience unravel the brain’s routing mechanisms by focusing attention on shared design principles and communication strategies that emerge from parallel challenges. Highlighting similarities between brain connectivity and the architecture of the internet can open new avenues of research and help unlock the brain’s deepest secrets. An Internet in Your Head presents a clear-eyed and engaging tour of brain science as it stands today and where the new paradigm might take it next. It offers anyone with an interest in brains a transformative new way to conceptualize what goes on inside our heads.

Internet Addiction

release date: Dec 31, 2020
Internet Addiction
This essential book questions the psychological construct of Internet Addiction by contextualizing it within the digital technological era. It proposes a critical psychology that investigates user subjectivity as a function of capitalism and imperialism, arguing against punitive models of digital excesses and critiquing the political economy of the Internet affecting all users. Friedman explores the limitations of individual-centered remediations exemplified in the psychology of internet addiction. Furthermore, Friedman outlines the self-creative actions of social media users, and the data processing that exploits them to urge psychologists to politicize rather than pathologize the effects of excessive net use. The book develops a notion of capitalist imperialism of the social web and studies this using the radical methods of philosopher Gilles Deleuze and psychoanalyst Félix Guattari. By synthesizing perspectives on digital life from sociology, economics, digital media theory, and technology studies for psychologists, this book will be of interest to academics and students in these areas, as well as psychologists and counselors interested in addressing Internet Addiction as a collective, societal ill.
