Free, For A Fee, Or Only Free: Usenet

Costs what must be paid for & what not what exactly is the difference between “Free” and “Free”? Actually just synonyms and therefore synonymous or is it? Many thousand users daily gather about the mysterious use NET. The oldest global network has fallen into oblivion, & memory of the Internet community will be brought again by some providers advertising’s back. With so-called “Freebies” or ‘Freebes’ (free = free, free), potential buyers are attracted. If you want to inform yourself further, you stumble inevitably over statements in forums & Council head, how: “Usenet is and was already getting anyway for free! Why should I pay something? “.” Basically the inclined user of the so-called “text” – newsgroups & ‘Binary’ – must be different newsgroups. Newsgroups or newsgroup are the individual forums in this network, where members can post their contributions (News).

As the name suggests, is a text newsgroup only in text form posted. This part of the Usenet is has always been from any Internet provider free of charge provided, as for example by Telekom. Google also offers a free, browser-based interface to the text groups of the Usenet through Google groups. In the “binaries” (binary newsgroups) accepts not only text documents, but also file attachments allowed. This is also why a binary newsgroup is much sought after.

The catch: These newsgroups are offered only by a few spziallisierten Usenet providers and are subject to a charge. Why? Why does my Internet provider access to binaries? And why is binary not free? You can clarify both questions with an answer: the amount of data in Binarygruppen are so large that the transit so caused unimaginable costs traffic (traffic), the ISP would not wear and a Usenetprovider must restore them. Text groups need not nearly so much server capacity & bandwidth because each character consumes only 1 bit. The File attachments are in the binary groups however, big often several gigabytes (GB). There are still free access to news servers with binaries? Yes. They hear at least about this. Supposedly you can hack into a news server with security vulnerabilities and the like. Everything to access reading free options on binaries, sounds but only little trustworthy. Spam & viruses are the key words here. Where we between free & free arrived at the gap: BinaryNewsgroups there is therefore not free, well. But by the alleged “subscription traps” of the Usenetanbieter, the interested users can “free” trial access & try. To do this you have to create a customer account, which automatically mutates into a subscription usually after 14 days and then the free offer will cost money at the end! However, witty & well-informed users turn the tables. It takes a serious Usenet provider free trial where you online can – cancel mouse click without problems, then can the user without Cost check an access provider after another & several months free access to binary groups. You must cancel the account within the trial period again only when the correct provider so that you can enjoy really free Usenet binaries. V.i.S.d.P. Sven Daneke

The uTRUSTit project will provide those information users available, they need to make decisions without being a security expert or fear of uncertain risks”. Six European research partners multidisciplinary research the uTRUSTit Consortium consists of experienced researchers and practitioners from six different European countries and can rely on simulation and Usablity laboratories within the framework of the project. The project is coordinated by the Austrian non-University Research Center CURE. “UTRUSTit explores CURE when and how users of the Internet of things” trust and adjusts the involvement of users in the development of response models, which eventually also be evaluated in field trials of CURE.

The Norwegian Computing Center collects and analyzes the user needs with special reference to users with physical disabilities. The Research Institute developed with the model representing the user feedback about the current state of security. The virtual reality Center production engineering (VRCP) of the Technical University of Chemnitz Department carries out the development and preparation of virtual reality simulations. The simulations allow you to quickly integrate the feedback of the users in the design process. The Hungarian IT-security company SEARCH-LAB examines the impact of safety ads of the Internet of things and concentrating on the human perception of trust and developed methods that determine the trustworthiness of the security of a system.

A major concern of CURE is to bridge the gap between research and practice. Approximately 35 researchers and researchers from different disciplines such as computer science, psychology, sociology, pedagogy and the Pforzheim in projects are working at CURE. CURE has one of the world’s most advanced usability and user experience lab. The CURE research include the development and use of User experience engineering methods, research into factors of use of and methodological transfer to design optimization.
