Browser with Tabs, Why not Ctrl+Z (Undo) to recover closed tabs?

Almost every program has “Undo” feature, popularly known as Ctrl+Z (because of the key combination)! Added to this even when working with Windows based operating system, when you have accidentally delete files or folders, you can recover them back immediately by pressing Ctrl+Z

Later today I had a very interesting article (in one of the tabbed page) that I was reading in IE for later day. After sometime without realizing this I closed this tab page and my fingers went on to press Ctrl+Z automatically, but there was no action for this keystroke. That’s when I thought of blogging about this asking why this feature wasn’t thought of or implemented in any of the latest browsers?

Introducing BYOD, BYOT, BYOP, BYOPC

BYOD – Bring Your Own Device
BYOT – Bring Your Own Technology
BYOP – Bring Your Own Phone
BYOPC – Bring Your Own PC

All of these refers to one terminology which means enabling employees / Students / Visitors to bring their owned mobile devices which ranges from a smart phone to laptops.

It was once when phones were only used for calling and messaging (SMS / MMS) and the data stored is local to that device. In today’s world technology is on its fast pace releasing newer gadgets, more updates and options with limitless possibilities. The digital era has made every individual bound to these devices and most of all the data which was once local to his device is now up in the cloud, which can be retrieved from any corner of the world. You are no more chained to additional capacities, storage, speed, etc and the fact is that your mobile could do almost all the things that your laptop or a desktop could do.

So, back to the original discussion, wouldn’t be wise for enterprises / organizations to give the liberty to individuals to use their own device, instead of providing them a dedicated PC / Laptop and the needed infrastructural setup? What do we gain here, lower IT overhead and freedom to employees! (remembering Eleanor Roosevelt, who said with great freedoms comes great responsibility.)

If you look at what are all the cons associated, the first thing that will hit your mind is “security”. But wouldn’t it be something challenging to tackle it? The experience gained by setting up something like this would be a case study for the future and will give rise to more innovation towards building mobile-enabled platforms, products and solutions.

Welcome to Liferay!

Having used SharePoint for some years, I had a feeling of realizing that the CMS world isn’t that huge. Liferay gave me a new dimension to my thought and I have started exploring Liferay with the SharePoint mind-set.

Recovery Settings

For all of the users who end up waiting forever to get their code in their “verified” mobile phones, Is there a better way to do this? When you opt-in for such recovery settings everything seems to go fine from registration aspect, but why doesn’t it work properly when it comes to recovery? don’t blame it on the volume of transactions, QOS and other stress and load testing criteria. Believe me this is 10th time I trying for this one to work. As a developer and programmer is their a better way to do this?
