    Dot Ninja: 100 New Web Domains Go Live

    More than 100 new domain names – the first tranche of 1,000 domain names to be released this year – have gone live. Until now, web users could choose from just 22 top-level domain names including .com, .net, and .org. Amongst the new domain names are location and trade-specific names, such as .berlin for the German capital, and .build for the construction industry. There are also some wacky names like .ninja and .cool. The most in-demand domain is expected to be the suffix شبكة which is pronounced "dot shabaka". It is the first generic top-level domain in Arabic. Tech commentators have described it as the web’s "big bang" and the biggest "online land rush" in history.

    Why ultra high-definition TVs are about to take off

    Firms like Netflix and YouTube have all announced support for 4K, also known as ultra high-definition TV. 4K refers to the 3840-pixel horizontal resolution of the screens – in other words, nearly 4000. At almost four times the 1080-pixel resolution of current high-definition screens, it creates much finer detail and greater texture. Most major manufacturers, including Sony, Samsung and LG, already have 4K products on the way. More important to the technology's rise will be the fact that a host of content producers and distributors are lining up to support it as well. Until now there has not been enough 4K content to make it a realistic proposition. Prices for 4K TVs are falling, which manufacturers say will encourage uptake.

    Beams of sound immerse you in music others can't hear

    In Jörg Müller’s audio-enabled "BoomRoom" at the Technical University of Berlin, emails and tweets fly around you like a flock of birds, each chirping a subtly different sound that identifies the sender. More urgent messages whizz directly over your head. Touch one and a computer reads it out. Being able to direct sound in such a focused way has only recently become possible thanks to smarter audio processing algorithms, directional loudspeakers and gesture-recognition technology, says Müller. Steering sound exactly where it is wanted is already catching on elsewhere in a number of different real-world applications. Hypersound is being trialed in some branches of McDonald's in California - customers can decide whether or not they want the sound on the restaurants’ televisions beamed to their table. Car makers are also interested in the technology which could allow only the driver to hear the GPS navigation instructions.

    Talbot & Son (Blinds) Limited - Hilary Talbot

    We were impressed right from our initial enquiry with the efficiency of Island Webworks. We had been putting off for too long re-designing our very out-of-date website but were somewhat relieved following our initial meeting with Charles that it was not going to be as difficult a job as we had thought. He made immediate sense of our requirements and prevented us spending unnecessarily by marshalling our ideas into a more logical order.  He made us focus on what we actually wanted the site to do for our business and then the company followed through with an excellent service to complete the website on budget and in good time. We would not hesitate to recommend Island Webworks to anyone considering setting up or redesigning a website.
