Trying to protect personal information (such as cell phone numbers, home phone numbers, address, relatives, etc.) is becoming very difficult these days. The Internet is making it too easy for people to find and display personal data on their websites. Many of these websites are essentially data brokers who get their data from other sources (mostly public records) and then present this information to anybody who is willing to pay for it. What they are doing is not illegal because the data they are displaying comes from records that are available to the public for anyone to see. These websites are the conduit between the data source (public records) and the consumer. They get, organize, and optimize the data in order to present it to the consumer with accuracy and performance. Consumers want accurate data and they want it now.
So how does one prevent their information from being displayed on these websites? Good question. If the user does not want their personal data displayed then they will need to "opt-out" or get their data removed from these websites. This is more difficult than one would think because each website has a different method for getting personal information removed. Some websites simply just need an email to delete information while others make a user mail in proof of identity before they will remove your data. So, if a user wanted their personal information removed from ALL of the different people search websites then they would need to find the websites, research what steps you need to do in order to get your information removed for each website, and then execute those steps. Since there are tens of hundreds of these people search websites, this could be very time consuming.
The new "Erase Yourself From the Web" service at the National Cellular Directory makes this process much easier and there is no charge to use it as it is a free service. If a user wants their data removed from the major people search websites, all they need to do is simply fill out the "Erase Yourself From the Web" form and their data will be removed from the websites in the list and if they are unable to remove the information they will send an email with the steps that the user needs to take to get the data removed for each website. This new service at the National Cellular Directory does the first two steps for the user - they locate the major people search websites and research the steps that need to be taken to remove the information for each website. So all a user has to do is submit their data and then execute the steps provided.
Personal data is a very serious issue and with new people search websites being created every day, this will continue to become a major problem. The National Cellular Directory is helping consumers by making it easy to get this data removed with the new free "Erase Yourself From The Web" service.

Hailing from Southern China's former-boomtown-turned-hi-tech-powerhouse, Shenzhen, E-Ceros is a company that prides itself on looking 'beyond imagination' to put together products that fill gaps in the tech world. With E-Ceros Vision tablet, this company is making a statement about the affordability of widescreen HD tablets. Vision is an enticing tablet perfectly suited for watching videos and gaming that combines a high end retina-style visual display with quad core power and 16 GB of internal memory.
Not willing to sacrifice anything when it came to visuals, E-Ceros chose to use a retina-style display for its latest product, Vision. "The first thing you notice when you turn on Vision is its rich, vibrant colors," said Rose Li, Chinavasion PR Manager. "The 10.1 inch quad core E-Ceros Vision tablet is like the perfect portable entertainment hub. It's unquestionably great for videos and movies, plus with 16 GB of internal memory you can store quite a few."
The 10.1 inch tablet also has 1.6 GHz quad core technology paired with 2GB of RAM, which means you can expect smooth sailing no matter what you use it for – streaming videos via Wi-Fi, downloading music, or just surfing the web. Plus the Vision's 16GB internal memory mentioned by Li can be expanded even more using an SD Card of up to 32 GB.
"We are looking at commuters, young professionals, teenagers – people who want a tablet whose price is consistent with its quality, not marked up because of a brand name. As a rule, at E-Ceros we hardly spend any money marketing our products, instead choosing to focus on research and development, sourcing of materials, and quality control. By excelling in these aspects, we are able to bring you a tablet like Vision that not only has an eye-popping amount of pixels (1920x1200), a quad core CPU and 16 GB internal memory, but isn't going to cost you an arm and a leg either."
Beneath Vision's sparkling widescreen and silver sheen is indeed an RK 3188 Cortex A9 Quad Core CPU that runs at up to 1.6 GHz, which is enticingly powerful. It's the kind of CPU that handles gaming without pause. And with a 10 point capacitive touch screen, users can make use of both hands while playing touch screen games, opening up many possibilities in terms of how you engage with you tablet.
If a company like E-Ceros can provide consumers with a product with such excellent visuals and solid CPU power, people ought to, as a rule, look deeper into the consumer electronics market to try to find the best deal instead of going with what the television. Buying advice aside, the Vision is a cool achievement for E-Ceros, a nascent company. Their contribution to widescreen tablet market will surely be appreciated by savvy consumers who are looking for the next best thing, not just what's popular.
With more than 360,000 satisfied customers shopping from almost every corner of the world, Chinavasion has proven itself to be the destination for Android tablet PCs. To learn more visit the site at http://www.chinavasion.com.

Long Beach, CA (PRWEB) April 16, 2014
Amidst the anticipation of anxious programmers, "The Black Art of Multiplatform Game Programming" by Jazon Yamamoto has hit the shelves and is available at Amazon.com and fine book retailers.
The announcement of this title has caused a buzz in the game development community considering this is the first commercial game programming book that contains author recorded video lessons to complement the printed material. The book covers game programming on Windows and Linux using the SDL (the Simple Direct Media Layer) API library. The SDL library powers indie hits such as Legend of Grimrock, and Faster Than Light, as well as Linux versions of commercial titles such as Quake 4 and Team Fortress 2. In an interview with the author, he highlighted some of the goals of the book and the inspiration to write it:
"I've always read programming books since I was a young boy. Some of my fondest childhood memories include sitting at my computer, way past my bedtime, trying to figure out how to make my games do things I saw in the games I played. At times, it was difficult for me to learn because sometimes it felt like no matter how much I read a paragraph, I could never understand it. I needed a voice to explain things to me in clear and simple language."
"While talking about the problem I had to game development veteran and author André LaMothe, he came up with an unusual idea. He wanted me to give users the voice I needed hear when I was learning this. He suggested that I not only write a beginner book, but that I should make video tutorials for each chapter. I was skeptical at first, but after making a few videos, I showed them to some of my friends and they flipped! That's when I knew we had something!"
The "Black Art of Mutliplatform Game Programming" covers beginner and intermediate level programming using C/C++. It takes the user from plotting pixels on a window to building a fast-paced space shoot'em up game as well as numerous other mini-games. The book starts by teaching the readers how to use the SDL library until they can program a simple Pong and Breakout inspired game. At that point, the book really picks ups and starts covering more advanced game programming techniques including game engine design, tile mapping, scene management, and a bit of scripting along with Object Oriented tactics.
The "Black Art of Multiplatform Game Programming" is published by Cengage Learning Ptr publishing and available at Amazon.com, CengagePtr.com as well as fine retailers around the world such as Barnes & Nobles and Books-A-Million.
