On my iPhone...iDashboard - Monitor your Google Analytics on the go!


As I throw myself into blogging and other forms of New Media full time, I need to be able to monitor what is happening on my web site several times a day and I like to do it even when I am out and about in the world. iDashboard provides a great method of checking in without pulling out my laptop and firing up the Wifi.

On opening, iDashboard provides 4 major stats - Performance Index (calculated by the app based on the other 3 stats), Visits, Visitors, Page Views. You can see timelines showing you past history and, in the paid version of the app, even see real time stats of who is visiting your site, right now. Tabs are also provided for weekly and monthly summary stats.

If you want a lot detailed data, you'll still need to log into Google Analytics via the web, but for quick, on-the-go access to your stats, nothing could be easier.

From the iTunes App Store...
Have your Google Analytics key performance indicators always with you on your iPhone or iPad – all at one glance!
Using your Google Analytics account this app shows your website’s most important metrics and conversions on one single dashboard. Dip into your website’s performance from a management point of view – any time and in real-time. The dashboard metrics will indicate in red or green whether or not you’re on track reaching your website goals, right now or all through the month.
These are the benefits you can profit from when using the dashboard app for Google Analytics:
► Real-time dashboard for Google Analytics
- Have your most important Google Analytics KPIs at your fingertips
- Watch your visitors live and in real-time on an auto-updating chart
► Individual goals and target values
- Define target values for each Google Analytics KPI (e.g. 1000 visitors per day)
- See how you're on track reaching your target for right now, today, this week and this month
- Get a quick indication in red, white or green for how well you are doing
► Website performance index
- Monitor your overall website performance in one single number (the Website Performance Index) as if it was a stock index like NASDAQ or Dow Jones
- On this weight each of your KPIs regarding its importance compared to the other ones (e.g. a conversion shall be 50 times more important than a visit)
- Let the application then calculate the performance index automatically and in real-time

Onion Pi makes your web traffic anonymous via Open Electronics

Hmmm, might be an easy (and relatively cheap) way to play around with Tor and learn a bit more about this anonymizing service. -- Douglas Adafruit’s Onion Pi is a Tor proxy that makes your web traffic anonymous, allowing you to use the internet free of snoopers and any kind of surveillance. Follow Adafruit’s tutorial on setting up Onion Pi and you’re on your way to a peaceful anonymous browsing experience. Tor is an onion routing service – every internet packet goes through 3 layers of relays before going to your destination. This makes it much harder for the server you are accessing (or anyone snooping on your Internet use) to figure out who you are and where you are coming from.

How to Build a Raspberry Pi-Powered Digital Photo Frame via Tom's Hardware

A digital photo frame is a small screen that can sit on your desk in your office or in your kitchen displaying your favorite pictures, changing at regular intervals. The first commercial digital photo frame was introduced in the 1990s shortly after the digital camera. Digital photo frames made a comeback in popularity during 2020, perhaps because people were staying at home more. In this tutorial, we’ll turn our Raspberry Pi into a digital photo frame using MagicMirror and the GooglePhotos module. Please note, we will skip installation of the 2-way mirror in the original Magic Mirror project. Consider this project, “Magic Mirror, without the mirror.” Read How to Build a Raspberry Pi-Powered Digital Photo Frame via Tom's Hardware An interesting link found among my daily reading
