    Ethiopian-Satelite-dish

    The Information Network Security Agency of Ethiopia (INSA) has launched a National Integrated Satellite Television Transmission Platform that would serve public and community media in Ethiopia, reports ENA.

    INSA Director-General, Major General Teklebirhan Wolde-Aregay said the platform named “Ethiosat” will contribute to the effort underway to ensure equality and fairness of media usage as well as to create informed community.

    Currently, there are 15 to 20 television channels that rent satellites individually to transmit their programs, the director-general stated, adding that the platform would create opportunities to all television stations to transmit from one platform.

    Furthermore, he noted that it will also drastically cut the foreign currency fee that is currently paid to satellite service providers, beyond ensuring their security as well as expanding access.

    Ethiosat will enable Ethiopia to have its own satellite television transmission platform which would be based on the digitalization of TV transmission, he added.

    According to Major General Teklebirhan, the agency is also striving to transfer TV transmission technology from analogue to digital.

  • Check the speed of your Internet connection on your status bar -Gitech101

    Internet-Speed-Meter-Lite-1

    Internet Speed Meter Lite is an app that instantly tells you what your Internet speed is. It also displays a table with the amount of data being used at all times. This helps you control how you use your data plan, so you don't go over your limit before the end of the month.

    Internet-Speed-Meter-Lite-2

    Here:Download Internet Speed Meter Lite

    The best thing about this tool is that it's updated in real time and offers information on the last 30 days, so you can perfectly manage your monthly contract. You can see three results on the table: the data used from your cellphone company, the data used via WiFi, and the total of the two. This helps tell you if your home network works correctly, and makes sure you are using it instead of your data plan.

    You can easily monitor your Internet activity by opening the app and checking the status of your connection. Another strong point is that you see the megabytes used on the notification bar at all times. This means you can check your data consumption in real time, and stop browsing if you need to save a few megabytes, or activate the WiFi connection if your device is not connected.

  • Top 10 keyboard shortcuts everyone should know

    Using keyboard shortcuts can greatly increase your productivity, reduce repetitive strain, and help keep you focused. For example, to copy text, you can highlight text and press the Ctrl + C shortcut. The shortcut is faster than moving your hands from the keyboard, highlighting with the mouse, choosing copy from the file menu, and then returning to the keyboard.

    Below are the top 10 keyboard shortcuts we recommend everyone memorize and use.

    Ctrl + C or Ctrl + Insert and Ctrl + X

    Both Ctrl + C and Ctrl + Insert will copy highlighted text or a selected item. If you want to cut an item instead of copying it, press Ctrl + X. This action removes the text or item and stores it in the clipboard for you, rather than just copying it to the clipboard while leaving the original behind.

    Apple computer users can substitute the Ctrl key for the command (cmd) key on their computers. For example, pressing Cmd + C copies highlighted text.
    Ctrl + V or Shift + Insert

    Both the Ctrl + V and Shift + Insert will paste the text or object that's stored in the clipboard.

    On Apple computers, use Cmd + V instead.

    Ctrl + Z and Ctrl + Y

    Pressing Ctrl + Z will undo any change. For example, if you cut text, pressing this key combination will undo the cut. These shortcuts can also be pressed multiple times to undo or redo multiple changes. Pressing Ctrl + Y would redo the undo.

    On Apple computers, use Cmd + Z and Cmd + Y to undo and redo.

    Ctrl + F

    Pressing Ctrl + F opens the Find field, which allows you to search the text currently displayed in any program that supports it. For example, Ctrl + F can be used in your Internet browser to find text on the current page. Press Ctrl + F now to open the Find in your browser and search for "shortcut" to display each time shortcut is mentioned on this page.

    Alt + Tab or Ctrl + Tab

    Pressing Alt + Tab switches between open programs moving forward. For example, if you have your browser window open and other programs running in the background press and hold Alt and then press the tab key to cycle through each open program.

    On Apple computers instead of using the Alt key use the Command (Cmd) key. For Example, Cmd + Tab to switch between open programs.

    Ctrl + Back space and Ctrl + Left or Right arrow

    Note: This is for PC users only and does not work on Apple computers

    Pressing Ctrl + Backspace will delete a full word at a time instead of a single character.

    Holding down the Ctrl key while pressing the left or right arrow will move the cursor one word at a time instead of one character at a time.

    Ctrl + S
    While working on a document or other file in almost every program, pressing Ctrl + S saves that file. Use this shortcut key frequently if you're working on anything important in case an error happens, you lose power, or any other issues that could cause you to any work since the last save.

    On Apple computers, use Cmd + S to save a file.
    Ctrl + Home or Ctrl + End

    Ctrl + Home will move the cursor to the beginning of the document, and Ctrl + End will move the cursor to the end of a document. These shortcuts work with most documents, as well as web pages.

    On Apple computers use Command and the Cmd and the up arrow to get to the beginning of a document or text or Cmd and the down arrow to get to the end of a document or text.
    Ctrl + P

    Control + P is used to open a print preview of the page or document currently being viewed. For example, press Ctrl + P now to view a print preview of this page.

    On Apple computers use Cmd + P to open the print preview.
    Page Up, Spacebar, and Page Down

    As you may have guessed, pressing either the page up or page down key will move to the next or previous page. When browsing the Internet, pressing the spacebar moves the scrollbar down a page. Similarly, Shift + spacebar moves the scrollbar up one page.
