    (Ping! Zine Web Hosting Magazine) – Today, most businesses rely heavily on computerized systems for day-to-day running. The more reliant businesses are on computerized systems, the larger the damage should they fail. Fortunately, there are ways of making these systems more resilient, or at least quicker to restore in case of failure: Ensuring high availability Firstly, hardware redundancy is a great way of minimizing the effect a failure will have on your business; keep a spare for each hardware component. Within a rack of servers, allow for two sources of power to feed the equipment in…

  • Chrome has a hidden tab discard option that could solve your memory problems

    1 Aug 2015 | 3:32 am
    For many people Google Chrome is their browser of choice. It may be popular, but most users would concede that Chrome has something of a memory problem -- it will gobble up resources like they are going out of fashion. To get around this issue, all manner of extensions have sprung up offering tab suspension -- but there's a hidden Tab Discarding option built in that does the same job. As revealed by Google's François Beaufort, the Chrome development team is working on bringing the feature, which is already used by Chrome OS users, to the Windows, Linux and Mac versions of the browser.

  • 6 nifty tracking gadgets that’ll help find lost devices

    Chris Wilton: Editorial Intern

    Keys are pretty important little nubs of metal. Without them, you can’t really do much. You can’t start a car. You can’t get into your house. You get my point. But just because our most essential bits and pieces are easy to lose, doesn’t mean that they can never be found again. Technology has helped the human race in many ways before with some of the most seemingly trivial inventions (think of the bread slicer, or the microwave), and now, it’s here to help those with three-second memories find their oft forgotten bits and bobs.

  • Imaging tool lets scientists look inside brain at nanoscale resolution

    Richard Moss
    1 Aug 2015 | 3:10 am
    The human brain contains more synapses than there are galaxies in the observable universe (to put a number on it, there are perhaps 100 trillion synapses versus 100 billion galaxies), and now scientists can see them all – individually. A new imaging tool promises to open the door to all sorts of new insights about the brain and how it works. The tool can generate images at a nanoscale resolution, which is small enough to see all cellular objects and many of their sub-cellular components (so for the biology-literate, that's stuff like neurons and the synapses that permit them to fire, plus…

    The current mainstream memory technologies, namely DRAM and NAND, have been around for decades. While clever engineering work has allowed the two to scale below 20nm geometries, both technologies have their inherent architectural limitations. But what if you were to take the best characteristics of DRAM and NAND and create a whole new type of memory? Meet Intel's and Micron's new 3D XPoint, the next generation non-volatile memory technology. It is said to provide up to a thousand times better endurance and performance than modern NAND technology does, while being non-volatile and…

    I love a good workstation – something with the power under the hood that acts as the silent black-box knight when work needs to be done. Most workstations are pre-built, expensive and come with a support package under the impression that the person using it might not know exactly what is involved (but the software package will do). They are also usually based on the enterprise level platforms. There is still a market for self-build workstations too, focusing most on ISV compatibility, hardware compatibility and longevity that cross the line between enterprise platforms and consumer…

He asked Steve if he was interested in talking to this company about finding a way to connect an iPhone to their entertainment system.

  • A Conversation With Michael Lopp, Pinterest’s Head Of Engineering

    Matthew Lynley
    1 Aug 2015 | 7:00 am
     About a year ago, Michael Lopp joined Pinterest as the company’s head of engineering — filling in the leadership of the engineering side next to co-founder Evan Sharp and CEO Ben Silbermann. Much of his role, since joining, has been to help teams at Pinterest, which consist of units of engineers, designers and product managers, mesh and work well together. Lopp comes from both… Read More
  • Vapor No More: Ethereum Has Launched

    1 Aug 2015 | 6:00 am
     Thursday was, I think, a historic day–though whether it becomes a memorable milestone like the launch of the Altair 8800, or an obscure footnote à la CP/M, remains to be seen. Thursday was the day that the Ethereum Project finally launched, after much sound and fury, including raising ~US$10 million (in Bitcoin.) It’s a fascinating, wildly ambitious project, and it is vaporware… Read More
  • Why Homejoy Failed … And The Future Of The On-Demand Economy

    Sam Madden
    31 Jul 2015 | 6:00 pm
     On the heels of Homejoy’s failure, the fundamental “on-demand marketplace” model has come into question by investors, the media and even consumers. That questioning is very relevant, as there has been an overload of VC money that has been injected in the on-demand service platform space over the past few years ($4 billion-plus in 2014).

  • Setting The Right Valuation For A Competitive Series A Round

    Aaron Holiday

     Founders are often puzzled by how VCs derive valuations for competitive Series A rounds. A competitive Series A round is an equity round where a company generally raises greater than $5 million led by a top-quartile venture capital firm. During these Series A rounds, it is not uncommon for founders to receive multiple term sheets from lead investors at different valuations, and to feel… Read More

    It's 82 feet high and holds more than 1,500 fish. It has a glass elevator that runs up and down the center of the tank. It is so big that it has to be cleaned by divers, three or four times each day. The AquaDom is inarguably the most badass aquarium in the world.

The massive tank cost an impressive 12.8 million Euros to build and was completed in 2004 Below is the impressive AquaDom are other tanks that make up the Sea Life Center, including a walk-through underwater tunnel, interactive…

  • 10 lifelong games of hide and seek you're definitely losing

    A good game of hide and seek is simple. You count for several seconds with your eyes closed, and your friends run and hide. You find them, you laugh and you start it all over again. If you've been searching for awhile, you call a forfeit. The game isn't very fun when it takes longer than a few minutes.

  • Ridiculous 'Terrorist Reporting' Provision In Intelligence Authorization Would Undermine The First Amendment

    Mike Masnick
    31 Jul 2015 | 7:39 pm
    A few weeks ago, we wrote about a troubling provision that the Senate Intelligence Committee had inserted into this year's intelligence authorization bill, which would require social networks to report to the government any "terrorist activity" they see on their systems. As we noted, this has all sorts of problems, and seems more designed to (1) generate headlines and (2) chill free speech than do anything useful. Thankfully, Senator Ron Wyden has put a hold on the bill specifically over this provision. “There is no question that tracking terrorist activity and preventing online terrorist…
  • And Now Here Comes Every Other Comic Convention With Trademark Apps For The Generic 'Comic Con'

    Timothy Geigner
    31 Jul 2015 | 6:21 pm
    Roughly a year ago, we brought you the very dumb story of the San Diego Comic-Con suing Don Farr Productions, organizers of the Salt Lake City Comic Con, for trademark infringement. If ever there were a classic case of a trademark that had moved into a generic status, "comic-con" and similar iterations would have to be it. There are comic cons everywhere. In the midst of all this, or perhaps because of it, the Salt Lake City Comic Con applied for its own trademark over its name, which, again, ought to have been denied as being too generic in my opinion. The USPTO, in its infinite wisdom,…

    The search for extraterrestrial intelligence (SETI) hasn't yielded much, and some of the results are even a bit embarrassing. We don't really know what to look for when we're listening for alien signals. There's growing evidence that planets like ours are not rare in the universe, but that doesn't necessarily mean intelligent life is abundant. Given the vast distances to neighboring star systems, we're also not likely to visit them any time soon.

  • Freedom Of The Press Foundation Sues DOJ Over Its Secret Rules For Spying On Journalists

    Mike Masnick
    31 Jul 2015 | 3:44 pm
    The wonderful Freedom of the Press Foundation is now suing the US Justice Department for refusing to reveal its rules and procedures for spying on journalists. You can read the complaint here. The key issue: what rules and oversight exist for the DOJ when it comes to spying on journalists. As you may recall, a few years ago, it came out that the DOJ had been using some fairly sneaky tricks to spy on journalists, including falsely telling a court that reporter James Rosen was a "co-conspirator" in order to get access to his emails and phone records. In response to a lot of criticism, the DOJ…
  • Judge Curious If Malibu Media Is Seeding Its Own Files And Engaged In Copyright Misuse

    Mike Masnick
    31 Jul 2015 | 2:30 pm
    It appears that a judge has begun to get a little more curious about copyright troll giant Malibu Media and how it goes about finding "infringers" to shakedown with settlement agreements. In the past, evidence showed that other similar copyright trolls like Prenda, were engaged in seeding their own content, which would make the file authorized, and thus the shakedown letters a form of "copyright misuse." There have long been rumors that Malibu Media, perhaps in association with the infamous "international men of mystery" running the behind-the-scenes operation out of Germany, may be seeding…

That being said obviously Dallas won’t be its final name.Now thanks to what appears to be a leaked slide, we could have an official name for the handset in the form of the BlackBerry Passport Silver Edition. The name itself isn’t too surprising given that for the most part, the handset’s features and designs are pretty close to the original Passport.The…
  • Sony Shutting Down Online Store 28th August

    31 Jul 2015 | 10:56 pm
    If you typically head on over to Sony’s online store to purchase their products, as opposed to going through another retailer like Amazon or maybe Adorama for your Sony camera needs, you might want to start looking for another retailer. Sony has recently begun to send out emails to its customers, notifying them that their online store will be closing.Their store is expected to close come 28th of August so if you have any gift cards or if there are some products that you’d like to purchase through its website, you should probably do so before the 28th where it will shut its doors at 1PM…

  • New tech developments could revolutionize how we store green energy

    Kayla Matthews
    29 Jul 2015 | 6:22 am
    As operating costs continue to rise, green energy is becoming more prominent in both the consumer and enterprise spaces. Companies and consumers alike are looking to conserve energy, waste fewer resources and spend less money. The sentiment is definitely understandable. That’s why a variety of new and unique technologies are in the works to help cut down some of the costs we rack up. Modern technologies like solar-powered equipment and utilities, electric cars, green building materials and even recycled e-waste may eventually have a huge impact on our lives. One new form of technology —…
  • The Singtrix is a karaoke dream

    Hannah Abrams
    15 Jul 2015 | 6:47 am
    My friends and I love to go out for karaoke – the only problem is: so does everyone else. We have our one corner in our one bar where we wait for hours so that one by one we can belt out our favorite karaoke jams: “Ain’t No Mountain High Enough”, “Wagon Wheel” and my personal favorite “Wannabe”. We sit there for the entirety of an evening, enduring several overly-confident singers going for those high ballad notes, and even worse, the plastered college guys who think it’s funny to botch “Barbie Girl”. When it’s finally my chance to go, the glory moments are… Continue…
  • Singapore just made augmented reality stamps a real thing

    13 Jul 2015 | 10:27 am
    Augmented and virtual reality tech is growing more popular by the minute. The difference between the two — if you don’t already know — is one takes place in a completely digital world while the other merges digital elements with that of the real world. Unlike VR tech, augmented reality devices allow you to interact with the real world in unique ways. Take modern AR apps for smartphones as an example. Yelp Monocle uses a combination of the device’s GPS and an internal compass to display nearby attractions such as restaurants, stores, bars and more. Google’s Ingress is one of the most…

    8 Jul 2015 | 9:09 am
    Janet Echelman isn’t your typical artist. Far from the traditional image of a lone painter standing at her easel with only a brush and paint palette, she works in conjunction with entire teams to build enormous public art displays. Her sculptures, which hang from metropolitan skyscrapers throughout the world, are formed using a variety of traditional nautical techniques, a creative eye and cutting-edge technology. Echelman, a classically trained artist, began experimenting with net sculptures while visiting a fishing village in India. She uses a variety of woven fabrics and lights to create…

    1 Jul 2015 | 6:47 am
    We know the standard answer to the question in the headline: Because it’s cheaper. But is it really? Now, if you’re an endless tinkerer and do-it-yourselfer, more power to you. If you like to fix your own plumbing and electrical, do your own landscaping, install your own cabinetry, pave your own driveway, or do your own taxes, we respect and appreciate that. Heck, you can buy a titanium replacement hip online if you’d like to install one yourself. The question is, should you? While DIYing can seem to sometimes save money up front and be a satisfying endeavor, the fact remains that…

    31 Jul 2015 | 2:39 pm
    Angry Birds 2 -- the 13th installment of Angry Birds and the original game's first proper sequel -- on Thursday became available for iOS and Android. The free-to-play model is a call to players beyond its base. However, those new players may slip through developer Rovio's fingers if the game's features fail to motivate them to play with real money. Though there are 12 titles separating the first game from Angry Birds 2, Rovio revisited every element of the core game except for the iconic slingshot.

    31 Jul 2015 | 1:24 pm
    Mozilla CEO Chris Beard on Thursday published an open letter to Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella, calling on him to offer Windows 10 users an easier way to set their browser preferences. Beard characterized the lack of choice in the Windows 10 experience as "very disturbing." It appears to have been designed to force users into an experience Microsoft wants them to have instead of one they want, he charged. Users who upgrade to Microsoft's Windows 10 using the express setup will have the new Edge browser set as their default.

    Security researchers Runa Sandvik and Michael Auger have hacked a TrackingPoint smart rifle that was designed to deliver sharpshooter results, even for novices. They demonstrated their feat for Wired and will present their findings at the week-long Black Hat 2015 security conference in Las Vegas, which begins Saturday. The two purchased a pair of $13,000 rifles and spent a year working on them. They developed a set of techniques that could let hackers compromise the rifles through the weapons' WiFi connection.

    30 Jul 2015 | 11:56 am
    Some proposed federal rules on the export of security tools created a tumult in cybersecurity circles -- a tumult that's pushed the rules into limbo. The comment period for the rules, which the U.S. Department of Commerce first aired in May, ended July 20 -- and although the regulations have noble intentions, they also could have dire consequences. "We don't believe we need these rules," said Cheri McGuire, vice president for global government affairs and cybersecurity policy at Symantec.

  • A “Faces Of DEF CON” Clique?

    Bill Brenner
    15 Jul 2015 | 5:25 am
    Recently on Twitter, infosec pro Marcus Carey voiced his dislike for all the “Faces of DEF CON” avatars people are using. Specifically, he said every time he sees one he wants to unfollow the person. Asked why, he opined that it was “infosec clique culture at its finest.” I responded that I was keeping my own avatar and that he could go ahead and unfollow me. It was an honor to be included in the “Faces of DEF CON” series by artist and fellow infosec pro Eddie “EddieTheYeti” Mize, I told him. He unfollowed me (he later re-followed) and asked…

A moment of reflection if ever there was one. It occurred to me that Liquidmatrix just had it’s 17th birthday this past February. That is a helluva long time for a website of any description. It has been a lot of fun to see the site grow from an insanely (ugly) basic HTML site to a heavily trafficked site with multiple members either writing and podcasting. I’ve been making a lot of architectural changes to the site and now, I’m…
  • 4 Tips for Jaded Black Hat/DEF CON Attendees

    Bill Brenner
    9 Jul 2015 | 11:33 am
    Soon, in various publications, articles will appear with advice for folks attending Black Hat and DEF CON for the first time. Advice for newbies is important, and I’ve written my own survival guide for that over the years. But for this post, I’m speaking to the battle-hardened veterans who have made the journey repeatedly over the years. Having attended too many of these to count, I consider myself a veteran. Or, to put it another way, I consider myself among the jaded. “Jaded” is a negative word. It’s typically used to describe someone who is burned out and no longer impressed with…

    Like many of you, I was shocked last week to hear that Stephen “Jamie” Toulouse (@Stepto) had fallen into a deep coma. Family members took to social media to say that his prognosis wasn’t looking good; that he wasn’t expected to survive. But thanks to excellent medical care, prayer and what is surely a strong will to live, Stepto — director of hacker success at HackerOne — seems to have made it through the storm. Saturday, his family posted an update saying he was awake and breathing without help from a tube. “Although he is very weak, he has been…

    In Association with TV Furniture Direct  After last week’s news that Ikea’s MALM drawers killed two toddlers in separate incidents, industries have gone into overdrive about re-affirming the safety of their products or adapting them to be safer.Ikea’s own advice is to use wall-anchoring kits to prevent tip over hazards, but a fact that was overlooked was that over 70% of fatal injuries from tip overs are caused by TVs and furniture that is supporting a TV. But how severe is this problem? Well, newly released figures from the CPSC (consumer product safety commission) actually paint…

    I wish we have traffic signals where cut-out cats pop-up on the road. No more plain red lights. Let me explain.To anyone who has travelled on Indian roads, this should be pretty obvious; to others, it might sound fatally amusing. One thing that vehicle drivers in India seem inherently incapable of doing is stopping before the white lines drawn at traffic signals (that is if they decide to stop in the first place).Thankfully, there is ONE thing that can stop almost all of them: cats. A cat crossing ones path is considered inauspicious (to put it mildly) and Indians would do anything to avoid…

    There are several challenges for national law enforcement authorities working in the global cyberspace, including the collection of evidence in the cloud, a topic that was the focus of the Council of Europe’s recent Octopus Conference on Cooperation against Cybercrime. One participant, a representative of a law enforcement authority in a small European country, spoke of his difficulty to obtain evidence to investigate local criminal activity when such evidence is in the form of digital communications stored in cloud servers based in the United States.

    Xavier Bettel, Prime Minister, Luxembourg Last week, Microsoft partnered with POLITICO to host the first Annual Cybersecurity Summit. The event comes at a key moment in time. Cybersecurity has never been higher on the political agenda in the EU and globally. And with good reason. This month’s cyber-attack on the U.S. Federal Government personnel office, which led to the information of around 4 million federal workers being stolen, is unfortunately not an isolated incident. This event reminds us once again of the importance of governments and companies ensuring the highest levels of…

    In November of last year, the high-profile hacking of Sony Pictures Entertainment resulted in the mass release of confidential information and the disruption of IT systems. This widely publicized event is one of many where a government has been accused of a damaging cyberattack. Therein lies the discontinuity. While cybercriminals of course act in disregard of the common good, governments are supposed to be different. Governments are supposed to protect the national security, public safety and economic prosperity of their own citizens and, even further, they are supposed to promote…

    26 Jul 2015 | 2:01 am
    Apple might as well just give up on coming out with an iPhone 6S or iPhone 7 after that, uh, devastating quarterly report in which it beat analysts’ estimates, saw earnings rise 38% and boasted of market share gains – only to see its stock price plummet. But let’s assume they’re going to keep plugging ahead. Solar power to the rescue In of the most breathless posts we’ve come across in some time, the Express out of the UK reports that “The Apple iPhone 7 might NEVER need to be recharged” (their CAPITALIZATION).

When I met Hartley, back in 1988, he was in his 60s and me and most of my friends were in their 20s. But we were united with Hartley as part of a group assembled by a Harvard University coach to row at the Henley Royal Regatta in England (I did not attend Harvard, but most of my Henley crew mates did).

    Uber is now valued at $50 bn - WSJ: Uber Technologies Inc. has closed a new round of funding valuing the five-year-old ride-hailing company at close to $51 billion, according to people familiar with the matter, equaling Facebook Inc.’s record for a private venture-backed startup. This is...extraordinary, for a business that essentially bases all its economic value on arbitraging a section of the labour market, essentially the newly emergent (and thus poorly regulated) zero-hours-contract, dead end contract job market, or whatever the equivalent is in whichever country you look at.

This smart purifier is a part of Xiaomi’s Mi Home network, yet it was met with surprise and muted ridicule – after all do we need our water purifiers to be “smart”? Similar to any other water…

  • Ridiculous 'Terrorist Reporting' Provision In Intelligence Authorization Would Undermine The First Amendment

    Mike Masnick

    A few weeks ago, we wrote about a troubling provision that the Senate Intelligence Committee had inserted into this year's intelligence authorization bill, which would require social networks to report to the government any "terrorist activity" they see on their systems. As we noted, this has all sorts of problems, and seems more designed to (1) generate headlines and (2) chill free speech than do anything useful. Thankfully, Senator Ron Wyden has put a hold on the bill specifically over this provision. “There is no question that tracking terrorist activity and preventing online terrorist…

If ever there were a classic case of a trademark that had moved into a generic status, "comic-con" and similar iterations would have to be it. There are comic cons everywhere. In the midst of all this, or perhaps because of it, the Salt Lake City Comic Con applied for its own trademark over its name, which, again, ought to have been denied as being too generic in my opinion.

The key issue: what rules and oversight exist for the DOJ when it comes to spying on journalists. As you may recall, a few years ago, it came out that the DOJ had been using some fairly sneaky tricks to spy on journalists, including falsely telling a court that reporter James Rosen was a "co-conspirator" in order to get access to his emails and phone records. In response to a lot of criticism, the DOJ…

In the past, evidence showed that other similar copyright trolls like Prenda, were engaged in seeding their own content, which would make the file authorized, and thus the shakedown letters a form of "copyright misuse." There have long been rumors that Malibu Media, perhaps in association with the infamous "international men of mystery" running the behind-the-scenes operation out of Germany, may be seeding…

    If you’re a budding artist or photographer, or if you have plenty of content that features fashion, lifestyle, beauty, or food, the iGallery template for Blogger is a good match for you. As its name implies, iGallery lets you feature your photos and images in the homepage minus the clutter. It doesn’t have a sidebar in the main page so your viewers can simply enjoy your photo thumbnails; the right sidebar only appears once you click on one of the thumbnails to view it as an individual post. iGallery is also good for magazine, business, and corporate websites that have plenty of…

    I have fond memories of playing Angry Birds, on my iPod Touch, way back in 2010. It was probably the best $0.99 I ever spent. This was when Angry Birds was just starting to seep into the pop culture. Since then, there have been 13 different versions of Angry Birds games. All expansion packs or...

    1 Aug 2015 | 4:12 am
    Three months ago, Mr. Price, 31, announced he was setting a new minimum salary of $70,000 at his Seattle credit card processing firm, Gravity Payments, and slashing his own million-dollar pay package to do it. He wasn't thinking about the current political clamor over low wages or the growing gap between rich and poor, he said. He was just thinking of the 120 people who worked for him and, let's be honest, a bit of free publicity. The idea struck him when a friend shared her worries about paying both her rent and student loans on a $40,000 salary. He realized a lot of his own employees earned…
  • How does Voxel Quest work now?

    If you're interested in the intricacies of game engine development, you should definitely keep track of Gavan Woolery's Voxel Quest. The latest blog post deals with a whole bunch of new stuff implemented in the voxel-based engine. The fact that VQ has undergone three tech revisions over two years probably seems a bit ridiculous, and maybe it is. Something like this would normally kill a game. That said, the point here is not just to make a game (plenty of people are doing that already), but to make a unique engine, and that could not happen in a vacuum. All I know is that I am finally happy…
  • Why Microsoft is giving away Windows 10 for free

    1 Aug 2015 | 3:43 am
    When Microsoft released Windows 95 almost 20 years ago, people packed into stores to be among the first lucky buyers to get their hands on this cutting edge new technology. Microsoft had an iron grip on productivity software in the enterprise, but even ordinary consumers were accustomed to paying hundreds of dollars for software. Two decades later, Microsoft is releasing Windows 10. But most people won’t have to rush out and purchase a copy. Anyone with a copy of Windows dating back to Windows 7 can upgrade for free, a first for Microsoft. Whether we're talking tiny smartphone…

Not sure I would want to be associated with a company like this.

However, with the growing reliance on the cloud and utilization of servers by businesses and personal uses alike, virtualization is becoming an unavoidable issue in IT departments around the world. As with any new tech, the most pressing conversation regarding virtual environments is undoubtedly one of security. Most IT professionals agree that virtual servers aren’t necessarily…

To see exactly how well the new operating-system goes on with old hardware, Softpedia performed a quick test of installing and using Windows 10 on a 7-year-old Acer Aspire One powered by Intel Atom N450 processor clocked at 1.66 GHz, 1 GB of RAM, and a 320 GB hard disk. The results were quite surprising, the total installation took just 15 minutes from a USB drive and Windows 10…

After identifying the details, you have to make the bill and then print it. You also need to track the bill to know if it’s paid or not. If there are complaints, you have to check all of your records to verify it. All of these processes will consume a lot of time.

    Because I’ve blogged a rather long time, I now have the privilege to point back to things written long ago (as history is so prone to repeat itself). For instance, five years ago, I shared my theory that the products Google constantly releases fall into two categories: the “Lucy Google” product or the “Pigpen Google” product. I point to that earlier post because of the failure of Google+ as a product (but a failure that contains many products that IMHO, once freed from the social networking shackles of Google+ will be successful), If you are wondering what I…

However, this feature roll-out was announced yesterday and is worth a special shout-out. (I’m a fan-boy of Google Maps.) As described by the Google Maps blog, the “Time Line” feature on Google Maps will not only let you tie location information to a Google Map, if you use Google Photos, it will display those on the timeline and map, as well. A similar “photo-on-map” feature has been on Flickr…

If you are among the 12 people who read this blog, I don’t need to catch you up. South Carolina did the right thing. Other states should follow. And, members of the U.S. House of Representatives should also. From the Washington Post story, “As S.C. prepares to lower battle flag, Boehner calls for Confederate review,” comes this quote that…

Old People At Bonnaroo from Funny Or Die   In addition to being blatantly ageist bigotry, the premise seems to fall apart when you consider that Funny or Die’s criteria for being an “old person” is being born before 1946. By that definition, here are some other cute old people they could have…

    Data is eating me alive. Every gadget these days can shoot photos and record video. The move to smaller but faster SSDs hasn't helped with storage. I captured 275GB of photos and videos on my last trip. Just one trip! And I'm just a hobbyist photographer with a mere 12MP camera. If you shoot with any regularity and a 20MP+ camera you'll easily be clocking more than a terabyte a year. Where on earth do normal people store that much data?

  • Oracle JDBC drivers for Weblogic 12c upgrade

    Sumit Sarkar
    28 Jul 2015 | 6:31 am
    Sumit Sarkar, Chief Data Evangelist, Progress DataDirect Turn to DataDirect for a commercial Oracle JDBC driver that supports all database versions (8i-12c). After seeing all the new features in WebLogic 12c like cloud security, a lot of Oracle shops are starting to upgrade their systems. For many Oracle shops, it’s common to run a wide range of database versions including 8.1.7 (8i), 9i, 10g, 11g and 12c. This can cause trouble because while the Oracle 11g Thin JDBC driver bundled with WebLogic 12c works well with the latest versions of Oracle, it does not support versions before 11g.

    Millennials: You may or may not have heard the term. Sources vary, but generally Millennials are classified as individuals with birth years ranging from 1982-2004.  Famous generations like the Baby Boomers have come about due to a significant societal influence, i.e. WWII.  For the Millennials, their lives have developed from a culture heavily influenced by a continually evolving entity: the computer. Many researchers have named traits of these so-called, “Millennials” as being community engaged, globally connected, confident, tolerant, upbeat…narcissistic and entitled.  Wait,…

    When it was originally introduced, the 8″ SHIELD tablet represented the highest performing tablet on the market, packing Tegra K1 SoC with 192 Kepler cores, world’s first tablet with desktop-like GPU. We were quite impressed with the performance Tegra achieved by using stock Android 5.0 Lollipop operating system, as well as overall built quality. The only negative was that the screen resolution wasn’t the greatest on an 8″ tablet, and it would heat up during gameplay – but not more than for example, Nexus 9 tablet (also powered by the same processor), or…

While there are a number to choose from, it is undoubtedly virtual reality (VR) that is capturing the imaginations of developers, brands and consumers alike. Even Mark Zuckerberg is stating that “VR is the next step for Facebook.” Not only does this have the potential to be lucrative, for example, but it can also change the lives of customers and the world around us forever.

    Terry White
    26 Jul 2015 | 9:11 pm
    As a portrait and fashion photographer I rarely have to worry about weather because I’m usually shooting in studio and controlling the lighting and environment. However, when I travel I become a travel/landscape photographer and just let me admit that it’s way way way more challenging. The 3rd stop on my Adobe tour took me to Hong Kong. Since it was my first trip to Hong Kong and I had plenty of time (a week) I was in no rush to go out shooting on day one. I arrived late Friday evening and on Saturday it looked like the shot above. I went out for lunch and captured the above shot…

    I’m traveling in Asia for the Adobe Create Now/CC Launch tour. My first stop was Auckland New Zealand and my hotel room just happened to have a balcony. Whenever, I have a private balcony that’s an added bonus when it comes to photography because it usually means that I can leave my camera setup for extended periods of time to shoot long exposures and time-lapse scenes. With a beautiful view of the harbor I decided to shoot a time-lapse. Since I don’t shoot time-lapse very often I Googled “best time-lapse settings”. Most of the result offered pretty much the same…

  • Aperlite YH-500N Review: A Great Low Cost Speedlight for Nikon & Canon Photographers

    Terry White
    6 Jul 2015 | 9:11 pm
    Speedlights are great for being able to light your subject on location. You get a portable, battery operated solution that with the right modifiers can be a great asset. The only problem is that the name brand speedlights by Nikon and Canon cost hundreds of dollars. This makes it hard to justify buying two or three of them. My main speedlight is a Nikon SB910 and it’s currently going for $546.95 at B&H. That price point puts them in the range of studio strobes. At the end of the day you need a good light that works with the functions of your camera such as TTL, and doesn’t eat…

    Microsoft promised a free Windows 10 upgrade to legit and licensed Windows 7 and Windows 8.1 customers. The updates will appear on these millions upon millions of machines on a staggered rollout basis. Microsoft says 'Your notification to upgrade could come as soon as a few days or in a few weeks.' Which is just not acceptable, but there's a way to trick the system into updating ASAP. Good thing about this method is that it works even if you haven't signed up for a 'reservation' to receive the free update (just means that you'll need to download a larger file).

    It’s been two years since Apple refreshed its Apple TV device so now might be a good time for an upgrade. Recent reports have surfaced that the Cupertino-based tech giant plans to unveil a new version of its set-top box in September. The new Apple TV will reportedly have a slimmer chassis, “drastically improved” remote with touchpad input, Siri support, and a bump up for onboard storage. The gadget will even supposedly launch with its own App Store and software development kit. Apple declined to comment on these reports so we can only keep speculating about it at the moment.

    An important part of both your search engine optimization (SEO) and visitor satisfaction is optimizing your images. Images that aren’t optimized can affect your site’s load time, as well as your ranking in search engine results. Optimizing for Load Time It’s no secret that a web page with a lot of images, including gifs, often takes longer to load than a web page that’s only made up of text. It’s also no secret that web pages without images aren’t very interesting to look at. How can you avoid a load time that will turn people away while also having enough images to keep them…

    Julie Clements
    31 Jul 2015 | 12:28 am
    Chronic pain is cited as the number one reason why Americans visit a physician. It is a leading cause of disability and is a major contributor to healthcare costs. In fact, chronic pain affects more Americans than diabetes, heart disease and cancer combined. According to a 2011 report from the Institute of Medicine (part of the National Academy of Sciences), chronic pain affects more than 100 million American adults. Both chronic pain and prescription opioid abuse are quite prevalent in the United States and continue to exact a heavy toll on patients and physicians. Individuals with chronic…

    It has been established beyond doubt that the health care in the U.S. is the most expensive in the world at 8.508 per capita. Implementing the Affordable Care Act will be meaningless unless the U.S. finds ways to reduce overwhelming health care costs without sacrificing the quality of care and improving access for patients. An article in the Washington Post by Vijay Govindarajan, Professor of International Business at Tuck School of Business, Dartmouth College and Ravi Ramamurti, Professor at Northeastern University and Director of its Center for Emerging Markets, points out that U.S.

    Regular screening increases the chances of detecting certain cancers early, when they are most likely to be curable. However, screening strategies vary in intensity and value. Many people have a lack of understanding about the trade-offs of screening. Studies report that patients and many physicians overestimate the benefits and are unaware of and/or downplay the potential harms of cancer screening. High intensity screening strategies are not necessarily high value care. In a paper published recently in the Annals of Internal Medicine, the American College of Physicians (ACP) issued advice…

    Fibromyalgia is a long term condition characterized by widespread pain in the muscles and soft tissues surrounding the joints throughout the body. Reports from the National Fibromyalgia Association show that about 10 million people in the United States suffer from this condition. Even though this condition affects both men and women, about 80-90 percent of cases account for women (mostly middle-aged women). The most common symptom associated with this condition is widespread pain that may initially begin in one area of the body such as the neck or shoulders and eventually spread to the entire…
  • Medical Coding for Burns in the Emergency Department

    It is very important to remain very cautious when coding for burns in an emergency setting. This is mainly because the medical coding rules and regulations for burn care are complex, are subject to change often and errors can cause big revenue loss to your practice. When it comes to proper coding, you should use the right diagnostic codes, CPT codes and evaluation and management (E/M) codes with the correct modifiers. ICD-9 Diagnostic Codes 940: Burn confined to eye and adnexa 941: Burn of face head and neck 942: Burn of trunk 943: Burn of upper limb except wrist and hand 944: Burn of…

    Part of the job of a technical author is to edit, review, read and understand articles that people have written. So you get a feeling for what works and what doesn’t. The primary conclusion I have drawn from this is that simplicity is key. Simplicity makes things quicker to read. It makes them easier to remember and increases the satisfaction level of the reader. Sounds like simplicity is good, can you go too far? Before you can simplify you need to have a clear understanding of what you are trying to say in the first place. You can oversimplify by leaving out essential information and not…

    I recently was at a customer that used a build depot for Windows OS deployment to new and previously used computers before they were delivered to employees’ offices. The depot enabled the customer to build up to 100 computers a day and the customer had the peace of mind knowing that every computer being built was getting the same Windows image and applications.  This process has been in place for well over a decade and had been accepted by employees as the standard process for receiving their computer.

  • Six degrees of separation - Vin Diesel and Joomla

    1 Aug 2015 | 10:20 am
    As we approach Joomla's 10th Birthday it is not surprising that my mind is drawn back to the days of August 2005 when it all began. In ten years there is so much history to share but not all of it is well known - or perhaps even that interesting. There is a fun game called "six degrees of separation" and this is my attempt at finding the connection between Hollywood star Vin Diesel and Joomla. Step 1. Vin Diesel starred in the movie Guardians of the Galaxy - don't remember seeing him? He was the voice of Groot - an alien tree. A difficult role as Groot only says three words - "I am Groot"…

    Chances are, in an average day, you are not accomplishing as many tasks as you would like … and neither are your colleagues or your employees. What is mystifying about that statement is that it seems today’s workforce is putting in more hours and more effort than ever before coinciding with an increased adoption of IT devices and applications designed to improve user productivity. In fact, this has been a key driver for organizations to enable workforce mobility – to provide flexibility in accessing business IT resources (applications, data, email, and other services) from any device at…

The cloud edition of Microsoft’s broadly adopted business productivity suite – which bundles such popular packages as Microsoft Word, Microsoft Excel, Microsoft PowerPoint, and Microsoft Outlook – has been both heavily praised and heavily criticized since its introduction in 2011. While the adoption rate of the traditional software edition of Microsoft Office is currently in no danger of being overtaken by its cloud-hosted cousin, recent adoption rates for Office 365 have substantially accelerated. Businesses, in particular, have shown…

This time, I bumped into the publisher of another classic FPS series – 3D Realms, the studio that created Duke Nukem 3D. 3D Realms is now the publisher arm of Danish developer Interceptor Entertainment. Interceptor plans to release a game called Bombshell this fall on Xbox One, Windows PC, and PlayStation 4. The titular Bombshell is a soldier who gains news powers for her cybernetic arm as she fights…

    6 Jul 2015 | 7:44 am
    About 2500 years ago there lived a brilliant Chinese military strategist, general Sun Tzu. His life’s work was a book entitled “The  Art of War”. It is full of ideas or in a way design patterns for winning small to large-scale conflicts in the most optimal ways.Even though the book is now 25 centuries old it still inspires leaders in our times. Sun Tzu believed that one of the better ways to win a war was to avoid a fight in a clever way. In our beloved software industry there are actually quite a few who believe the same.

Most people are convinced testers do nothing else but test computer games, which for them means they play all day long at work. They couldn’t be more wrong!Testers work not only for game dev companies. They work in IT departments of companies operating in various sectors.

And yet; there remains an unfulfilled level of pride. And as the Evil Empire of Evildoers well know, Arrogant pride in our Evilness is basically a requirement. Many Vile Faceless Minions are required.

    This has made it onto the top 10 films I have ever seen. When searching for the image above, I also came across the fact that the average review for it is very poor, between one and three stars, which initially (and stupidly) shocked me. This film is truly amazing and or a variety of reasons, but primary amongst them is that it is a very real portrayal of what happens when Political Correctness becomes the ideology of the day. And yes, I really do mean that, and yes, the emphasis on Political Correctness is indeed on Political. But do not be fooled. What you think is harmless garden variety…

Most companies’ efforts, therefore, are centered on the development and optimization of new products and/or services. Developing a superior product, however, is only half the picture. For a new product/service to be adopted, consumers have to be willing to part with an existing product/service/behavior.

When I first moved to Chicago seven years ago, Ulta dominated the market, and I suppose that makes sense given it is a Chicago-based company. When I ventured into Ulta for the first time, just to explore, I remember that being the moment when my floodgates of makeup-crazed girly-ness opened. Yes, they carried some of the drugstore brands in one section of the store, all very familiar thanks to my teen years, but to the…

But when I reviewed motherboards like Gigabyte X99-UD4, I found that the space between the CPU cooler and the first PCIe x16 slot is non-existent when I mounted Zotac GTX 780Ti Extreme AMP! Edition.

The CPU cooler can accommodate up to 2x 140 x 140 x 25mm fans, but with a choice of a single fan, you can either mount it towards the top for having high clearance required for tall spreaders and even maybe some sinks on the motherboard (you’ll be surprised).

The real problem lies in the services linked to those cards: declining budgets, quality, coverage, scope, rising fees, and more expensive premiums. Also: the corruption and mishandling of state workers’ and private sector workers’ pension and health insurance funds. Those are the problems begging to be solved. There’s no problem either with non-registration of SIM cards. The real problem lies in the failure of authorities to use all tools at their disposal to dismantle, arrest, and prosecute syndicates.

  • CIOs: Adopt Social Media For Success, Now

    InformationWeek Blog
    9 Jul 2015 | 3:52 pm
    Social Media enhances learning, develops needed contacts, speeds problem-solving, and helps you create business transformation. In June, I attended and presented at a large, excellent CIO conference in New Zealand. I learned from the conference, for sure. But I also learned some conference experience lessons beyond the event’s walls that I never would have if not for social media. I emphasize the social media aspect, because, my fellow IT leaders, we in IT are not a terribly social lot. I attend several startup events, enterprise IT events, and marketing events each year, and I tend to…

    California’s cap-and-trade program brings in money when carbon allowances are auctioned.  A lot of money – about $1.49 billion in the current fiscal year alone, the state said last week. The law requires that “the state invest at least 10 percent of the auction proceeds within the most disadvantaged communities and at least 25 percent of the proceeds be invested to benefit these communities.”And that’s why Roy Rivera, a disabled man who lives on a fixed income in Sacramento, now has solar on his roof – and more than 1,600 similarly low-income households will as well.California…

During the days of Windows XP, defragging was necessary and it made a significant difference in performance. Over time, many companies started selling third party defragging tools that supposedly did the job faster, better and more accurately. Some were…

    The human brain contains more synapses than there are galaxies in the observable universe (to put a number on it, there are perhaps 100 trillion synapses versus 100 billion galaxies), and now scientists can see them all – individually. A new imaging tool promises to open the door to all sorts of new insights about the brain and how it works. The tool can generate images at a nanoscale resolution, which is small enough to see all cellular objects and many of their sub-cellular components (so for the biology-literate, that's stuff like neurons and the synapses that permit them to fire, plus…

    Just a month after announcing its entry into the bespoke automotive aftermarket, Maryland-based carbon fiber atelier Vitesse AuDessus (that's "Superior Speed" in French) has introduced a new carbon fiber wheel. The hollow, single-piece wheel appears quite similar in design to the Aircore wheel that Koenigsegg uses on its Agera R and One:1 hypercars, only this wheel can lighten and liven everything from Lamborghinis, to McLarens, to Porsches, assuming the owner is willing to drop the price of an Audi A4 to get a set. ..

  • Build a Grid Layout For WordPress Using WP_Query

    John Morris
    16 Jul 2015 | 4:25 am
    Here’s how to build a grid layout for WordPress via shortcodes and WP_Query: A lot of WordPress developers immediately rush to query_posts in order to create custom loops. But, query_posts is meant for altering the main loop of a WordPress page/post (actually, it’s not even recommended for that anymore). Using get_posts() is okay… but, if you want that real WordPress flavor using WP_Query is the way to go. In the video above, I show you how to use WP_Query to create a custom loop inside WordPress in order to build a Pinterest-style grid layout. Here’s the code I used…

    IE Voodoo Doll Teresa WattsThis was a week where old technology reappeared, refreshed for another try at getting it right this time around. Microsoft released Windows 10 and trumpeted as its main feature the return of the Start menu. This had been infamously axed in the previous version, Windows 8. Windows 10 also brings back the desktop as the main interface, relegating Windows 8 live tiles to an extension of the Start menu. The user interface is also a major reversal of the attempt of the previous version of windows to focus on being a mobile platform supporting touch. Now that Microsoft…

    In today's television market Comcast is the bully -- the 600 pound gorilla. The cable provider owns NBC, which arguably should not have been allowed, but what's done is done. The carrier also doesn't seem to be above using it's status to fight off rivals, especially those in the new TV market that it knows is coming, but would prefer to prevent. That is apparently the case recently with Sling TV, a service that works just like cable, but comes in over the internet, which turns Comcast into a bandwidth provider and takes away that lucrative TV business.

All versions of Microsoft’s operating system registered drops in July, except of course Windows 10 which was launched at the tail end of the month. Only being available for a few days meant the new OS was never going to shift the needle significantly, but there were enough upgraders (Microsoft says 14 million in the first 24 hours) to double the operating system’s share. According to the analysis firm, Windows 10 now has 0.39 percent of the…

    Even if living in a digital era has lead us to communicate via text or email and to advertise via mobile devices or the web, print marketing is more important than ever. Marketers have realized that branded print material should be an integral part of any marketing mix. Therefore, in order to be successful, businesses shouldn’t fail to include valuable print marketing tools such as flyers (which you can order at very affordable prices online, like you can do here), brochures, catalogs, newsletters and business cards in their offline marketing channels.

    There’s no doubt that Samsung is among the top handset makers. Though so, most people will agree that their design leaves a lot to be desired. However, last year, the company broke new ground (their ground, that is) by incorporating more premium materials into the Galaxy Alpha and continues to do the same for the current flagships, Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge, and more recently the Galaxy Tab S2. The good news is, the company isn’t stopping at flagships or premium devices, the same design language has been carried over to the Galaxy A8, which was launched in China a couple of weeks ago…

    We knew it! Samsung will not just sit and watch its rival rolls out an awesome Android-flavored flip phone that everybody wants. No way that’s going to happen and so, this other South Korean electronics juggernaut is quick to introduce its own Android clamshell handset which it calls Galaxy Folder. A very apt name, isn’t it? As you know, the phone folds. If folding phone users have any care about specs, they’d be glad that Folder is a little ‘sexier’ on the spec-sheet, which includes a larger 3.8-inch touch display with 480 by 800 resolution, double the RAM at 2GB, a…

    According to a song, “life in plastic, is fantastic” (know which song it is?), well, I guess that might be true soon, but not as a Barbie doll. Rather, it is the roads that our cars rolled on that could be plastic instead of the regular, environmentally unfriendly asphalt. That’s if VolkerWessels has their way. The Dutch construction company is exploring using recycled plastic bottles to create hollow plastic road. The plastic roads not only will save landfills from being piled with plastic wastes, but they are also resistant to corrosion and weather, can deal with extreme temperatures,…

    The concept of walking on water might sound supernatural, but in fact it is a quite natural phenomenon. Many small living creatures leverage water’s surface tension to maneuver themselves around. One of the most complex maneuvers, jumping on water, is achieved by a species of semi-aquatic insects called water striders that not only skim along water’s surface but also generate enough upward thrust with their legs to launch themselves airborne from it. Now, emulating this natural form of water-based locomotion, an international team of scientists from Seoul National University,…

No one has been able to create a laser that beams white light. Researchers at Arizona State University have solved the puzzle.

  • Next generation NVM, 3D XPoint from Intel + Micron

    31 Jul 2015 | 2:25 pm
    Earlier this week Intel-Micron announced (see webcast here and here)  a new, transistor-less NVM with 1000 time the speed (10µsec access time for NAND) of NAND [~10ns (nano-second) access times] and at 10X the density of DRAM (currently 16Gb/DRAM chip). They call the new technology 3D XPoint™ (cross-point) NVM (non-volatile memory). In addition to the speed and density advantages, 3D XPoint NVM also doesn’t have the endurance problems associated with todays NAND.

    This week scientists at Oak Ridge National Laboratory have created two dimensional nano-electronic circuits just 1nm tall (see Nature Communications article). Apparently they were able to create one crystal two crystals ontop of one another, then infused the top that layer with sulfur. With that as a base they used  standard scalable photolitographic and electron beam lithographic processing techniques to pattern electronic junctions in the crystal layer and then used a pulsed laser evaporate to burn off selective sulfur atoms from a target (selective sulferization of the material),…

    Containers? No, not the shipping containers but the much-hyped container technology in the computer industry. I am sure even if you have not used any of the existing container technologies, you must have at least read or heard about them. I am not the first one to write about containers and this is certainly not an in-depth overview of container technologies. I will eventually get there and show you how you can deploy different container technologies. This series of articles is about my own thoughts and a documentation for my own reference. In the process, I wish to help my readers as well.

It’s a great read and drives home a truth that often gets overlooked in our industry: small, empowered and self-organizing teams almost always produce better products than larger, top-down led and longer-lived teams. Overall it gives you a glimpse into some of the newer approaches to management that have emerged from the Valley in the last few years (e.g. Holacracy, Lean).

  • 5 reasons why employee advocacy is the next logical step for B2B companies

    David Graham
    30 Jul 2015 | 10:00 pm
    All progressive B2B companies (ie those selling products, services, solutions and professional services to other companies) who are benefitting from the use of content marketing, inbound marketing, social media marketing and email marketing and are asking the “Where to from here?” question, should be seriously looking at employee advocacy. If you are not familiar with employee advocacy, there are a number of cloud-based employee advocacy platforms now available which enable brands to extend their marketing messaging through their staff members. The employee advocacy platform…
  • 3 simple steps to getting smart on mobile security

    30 Jul 2015 | 9:38 pm
    Mobile devices and apps are how work gets done these days. Employees aren’t tied to their desks, work doesn’t always mean sitting down from 9-5 and meetings can take place anywhere from a coffee shop to the sidelines of a soccer game. However, as the adoption of mobile devices (smartphones and tablets) continues to increase, both employers and employees need to be aware of their company’s security policies. According to the International Data Corporation (IDC), smartphone shipments to the Middle East and Africa saw unprecedented year-on-year growth of 83% in Q4 of 2014. Another report…

    30 Jul 2015 | 9:35 pm
    Keys are pretty important little nubs of metal. Without them, you can’t really do much. You can’t start a car. You can’t get into your house. You get my point. But just because our most essential bits and pieces are easy to lose, doesn’t mean that they can never be found again. Technology has helped the human race in many ways before with some of the most seemingly trivial inventions (think of the bread slicer, or the microwave), and now, it’s here to help those with three-second memories find their oft forgotten bits and bobs.

  • Smartphone shipments still robust, but growth slowing

    Stuart Thomas: Senior Reporter
    30 Jul 2015 | 9:30 pm
    We still have a massive appetite for smartphones, but there are early signs that the market’s spectacular growth is slowing. According to a new report released by Juniper Research, smartphone shipments reached 338 million in Q2 2015, representing a year-on-year growth of 16%. The research house suggests that this represents an increasing maturity in the smartphone space, with the potential for new smartphone users gradually slowing. China on the rise Even within that context though, there’s still room for emerging players to see serious growth. The launch of the P8 for instance…

  • Selfishly Altruistic: The Science Behind Sharing

    Renee Schmidt
    14 Jul 2015 | 1:09 pm
    Altruism is fascinating. Partly because it goes against what we understand of human nature —that people inherently desire the greatest amount of instant gratification with the least amount of effort. As I wrote recently, what separates us from our ape cousins is this very desire for instant gratification. Humans, because we have a better-developed pre-frontal cortex, can assess second, third, or even fourth order consequences of any given action, and CHOOSE to inject self-discipline in favor of a longer term outcome (i.e. pain now, gain later). The pre-frontal cortex is involved…
  • Are You Living a Lie? The Wisdom of Truth

    Renee Schmidt
    7 Jul 2015 | 8:05 am
    As a management consultant, my success hinges upon radical honesty. When a consultant is brought in, it’s usually because an injection of truth is required. As Albert Einstein put it best: “We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them.” People are afraid of the truth. Avoiding the truth about situations, people, and ourselves, however, prevents us from learning and keeps us stuck in repetitive patterns that thwart our evolution and the attainment of that which we truly desire. This is no different in an organizational setting. Companies that…
  • Manifesting My Desires: Am I Worthy?

    Renee Schmidt
    6 Jul 2015 | 10:12 am
    I have been considering what it takes to manifest more of what I want into my life. This led me to question: am I worthy of what I want? And how does one determine self-worth or self-value anyway? The whole endeavor sounds like a big ego trip. It’s not. Three types of people will read this post; those with 1. healthy self-worth, 2. low self-worth and 3. inflated self-worth. Individuals with low and inflated self-worth are both egotistical; it’s just different sides of the same coin (sorry to be the bearer of bad news). Low self-worth often exhibits as not manifesting what we desire.

    I deactivated my Facebook profile. Why? Because no one cares. Well, actually, if you’re reading this post and have found your way here to my personal blog, you may care. But by and large, people will not. If you desire my substantiation, or thoughtful reasons why you may want to do the same, here are a couple of reasons why I’ve taken  my ~10 year old profile down. 1. Too much noise and none of it is of particular value. I noticed myself busy with Facebook but not getting any particular value out of it. In fact, the investment of time eventually began to generate a negative…

For those that have been very comfortable using digital music service Spotify for the past few years Apple Music has been somewhat of an interesting development. Initially it was thought that Apple were simply riding the coat tails of the aforementioned music provider trying to lure away iOS users to use their cheaper and more convenient music streaming service. But now it’s on the market just who comes out on top when it comes to price,…

With the release of the Apple Watch came an innovative way of telling the time.

    Ever since gaming became its own subculture it has been fraught with controversy, taking the blame for everything from laziness in young adults to the horrors of the Columbine shooting. However, despite the standard media narrative that gaming is destructive, the fundamentals of gaming offers society more positives than negatives. At its core, gaming is about competition, whether against yourself or other players.

  • The pay TV scam that’s hiding in plain sight

    Services like Netflix are driving U.S. households to cut the cord at an unprecedented rate, and studies suggest that impressive rate won't be slowing anytime soon. The unbreakable bundles, poor customer service and high cost of pay TV packages has made consumers all too eager to ditch their cable and satellite TV services, so it makes sense that cord cutting has exploded now that entertainment is widely available elsewhere. As if the reasons to loathe pay TV service providers weren't already numerous enough, a recent report sheds new light on a scam that cable and satellite TV companies have…

This was then applied to other areas and seemed to hold true. In reality, Tom Cargill had it right…

    To hear director Christopher McQuarrie describe it, production on Mission: Impossible — Rogue Nation was designed around the idea of premeditated chaos. “It was all constantly an evolution based on elements coming together randomly,” he said, later noting, "We came to work every day knowing that what we had written the day before was not to our satisfaction, and trying to find it in the moment.” That fluidity is somewhat surprising — after all, this is a movie with an estimated budget of $150 million — but it also speaks to the numerous interested parties whose demands a director…

If I refer to one, am I also referring to the other? Are they truly the same? It's incumbent on companies to create brands in such a way that we can refer…

Cisco’s recent IoT study suggests that the number of connected devices is expected to grow to 50 billion by 2020, leading to a global economic impact of $10 trillion. Connected devices are set to change the very fabric of the world we live and work in.

The survey, which buttonholed 100 CIOs, revealed more than four in five (83%) say ‘cloud sprawl’ makes IT management more complex. Looking at it another way, IT departments simply are not applying the same testing standards to the cloud as they would for in house IT services.
