Germany wants to ban Google Analytics

Google Analytics
In more than a year German Data protection authorities has been in close dialog with Google about Google analytics way of collecting and sending user data back to Google’s servers in the U.S. The problem is that Google is collecting IP addresses of users visiting sites with the Google Analytics script implemented is against German data protection laws. Goggle has developed a browser plugin that users can install to block Analytics from collecting these data, but this is not sufficient enough for the Germans. The outcome of this might be that German companies using Google analytics might be fined if they continue using this tool.
What do you think about this matter? Please drop me a comment.

My favorite WordPress plugins

WordPress plugins
With WordPress you have access to tons of plugins. Some are fantastic and some are not. It can be quite a lot of work to find the good once. That is why I have decided to make a little description of my favorite plugins:

  • Akismet
  • Add Meta Tag
  • Avatar plugin
  • WP PHP Widget
  • Google Analytics Plug-in
  • WP-Polls

Akismet:

Akismet is one plugin you can’t live without if you want people to leave comments on your blog and on the other hand want to keep spammers away.

The difference between a router and an access point

Access Point or Router?

I don’t know how many times I have been asked that question, but it is many times. It is really difficult for many people to understand the difference between an access point and a router. Many people go out and buy a router, when it actually was an access point they needed to get the job done.  In this post I will try to explain the difference between a router and an access point and when you need which.
