    While startup life is a popular and fun work life, it isn’t something for everyone. Startup life is a lot more demanding on its workforce with its tighter schedules and resource constraints. Making the most of every minute, while avoiding burning out in the process, is what startup people have to face on a daily basis. Getting a lot done in the limited available time and resources requires some productivity hacks that every startup person must be aware of. Making the most of every minute of your work time, while keeping oneself in good condition is how one gets more productive in their…

  • Silver mesh lets users "wrap heat" around body parts

    In order to treat injured joints, patients are often advised to apply heat.

  • Review: Light & Motion Urban Trail 850 FC bike light is compact but packs a wallop

    Ben Coxworth
    3 Jul 2015 | 2:33 pm
    Thanks to continuing advances in LED and lithium battery technology, it's now not uncommon to see mountain bike headlights putting out 3,000 lumens or more. Most of these high-intensity lights incorporate two or three bulbs, however, requiring a separate battery pack to power them. With this in mind, we were intrigued when we heard that Light & Motion had declared its self-contained new Urban 850 Trail FC to be "the most powerful single-LED bike light that exists." We gave it a try and liked what it has to offer ... even if its claim may be a little hard to substantiate... Continue…

    Today Microsoft has finally created tables outlining what the different versions of the operating system are going to feature. It was back in May that they finally announced all of the versions of Windows 10 that are coming, but the actual features of each version was still a mystery. We could of course take an educated guess based on history, but as of today there is finally a list of all of the features broken down by version. As a refresh, on the PC there are four basic versions. Home and Pro are the two that will be available for most people to purchase, and Enterprise is available to…
  • You Might Not Get Windows 10 On July 29, But You Get A New Build Today

    2 Jul 2015 | 7:21 pm
    Another day, and another build of Windows 10 has been released to the fast ring. With Windows 10’s official release date of July 29th coming up very quickly now, Microsoft has shifted gears to bug fixes and polish. As I noted just yesterday, build 10158 and 10159 have made some big strides in stability and polish, and today’s build of 10162 is much the same. In fact, unlike all other builds so far, the blog post outlining the new build does not even list any new features other than bug fixes. The last couple of builds have all been to the fast ring.

    With Intel’s latest extreme platform, Haswell-E and X99, supporting DDR4, all fingers have been pointing towards the state of DDR4 support for the 100-series motherboards and Intel’s 6th generation of processors, Skylake. At Computex we saw a number of 100-series motherboards, although I want to point out a couple which showcase a little of the DRAM support we should expect. At the Biostar booth there was a H170 motherboard and a B150 motherboard that had clearly defined DDR3 and DDR4 memory slots: The H170Z3 in show looks similar to a standard mATX motherboard using a single PCIe…

    Having launched last week and being reviewed today is AMD’s Radeon R9 Fury X, the company’s new flagship single-GPU video card. Featuring a fully enabled Fiji GPU, the R9 Fury X is AMD's new Fiji GPU at its finest, and a safe bet to be the grandest video card AMD releases built on TSMC’s 28nm process. Fiji is clocked high, cooled with overkill, and priced to go right up against the only GM200 GeForce card from NVIDIA that anyone cares about: the GeForce GTX 980 Ti.
  • Windows 10 Build 10159 Released To Windows Insiders

    30 Jun 2015 | 7:30 pm
    Just yesterday, Microsoft released build 10158 to the Windows Insiders fast ring. I was going to write it up but I wanted to kick the tires on it first to give my thoughts to the changes. Normally there is plenty of time to do that, but today yet another build was released. Build 10159 comes today, and once again just to the fast ring, so if you need an ISO you’ll have to wait a bit for this build to come to the slow ring. A few months ago, I really questioned whether Windows 10 would be ready by summer. When Microsoft announced that the launch date was July 29th, it seemed like an…

They say, "In prototype form, the smoker looks like a combination of a giant pepper mill, a tandoori oven, and V.I.N.CENT from The Black Hole. It weighs 300 pounds. It has a refueling chute built into the side of it.

  • Why Electric Vehicles Aren't More Popular

    4 Jul 2015 | 8:34 am
    An anonymous reader writes: Ars takes a look at a recent report from the National Academy of Sciences into the reasons why more people aren't driving electric vehicles. Of course infrastructure issues are a part of it — until charging stations are ubiquitous, the convenience factor for using a gas-powered car will weigh heavily on consumers's minds. (This despite the prevalence of outlets at home and work, where the vast majority of charging will be done even with better infrastructure.) But other reasons are much more tractable.

The distance sets the record for manned, solar-powered flight, both by distance (7,200 km, according to the BBC) and by time spent aloft (118 hours). This was one leg in a longer journey to fly around the world, and by far the longest they've attempted. Their next leg will send them across the rest of the Pacific Ocean, landing in Phoenix, Arizona. Then they'll stop off at New York before crossing the Atlantic Ocean on their way back to the journey's…
  • Wired Cautions Would-Be Drone Photogs on the 4th

    4 Jul 2015 | 5:36 am
    Last year's spectacular but unauthorized you-are-there video from the inside of a fireworks display has probably inspired quite a few people to try getting their own bird's-eye view this year. Wired cautions photographers, though, that many municipalities have specifically banned (and some will be looking for) unauthorized airborne visitors, and that the FAA's guidelines for legal flight are tricky to comply with during a fireworks show. This is both because it's hard to maintain visual contact with a drone amid the dark and smoke of a show, and because of the altitude at which many…

    I have chickens. You know, the kind that sleep in a coop in the backyard and lay eggs. Three chickens, three eggs, every single day. In the U.S., we have a peculiar relationship with our eggs. We keep them in refrigerators and all of the eggs in a carton — whether it’s six or 36 — have the same expiration date. The eggs from my chickens don’t have to be refrigerated and don’t all expire on the same day, because each day those three new eggs arrive. I like order, but keeping eggs in order of acquisition can be a problem. Leaving them in a bowl doesn’t help and traditional egg…

    The new MacBook is most definitely not for everyone. But I absolutely love it. If you need portability more than maximum power, if your need is for a small, excellent quality display with a great keyboard and a beautiful design, it shows the way forward. I do not generally use a laptop for really heavy duty work; projects such as video or fancy Photoshop work will more likely be done on an iMac desktop. My OS X mobile choice has been an aging, banged up MacBook Air. The processor was slow under Yosemite and the quality of the pre-Retina Display was less than great. Some of the major…

    These days we hear a lot about using organic products, biodegradable products, recycling plastics, etc., to minimize carbon footprint and save the environment.

  • Most Efficient Solar Panels

    22 Jun 2015 | 5:30 am
    In trying to create the most efficient solar panels, pay special attention to the portion of the backsheet of the panels. A backsheet layer is the solar panel which solar cells are arranged. The other side of this backsheet, more precisely in the upper middle area is the junction box. A backsheet are often made of vinyl fluoride or PVF which is similar to PVC, or polyvinyl chloride, the material used in pipes and water pipes. P.V.F. It is commonly used in aircraft interiors and vehicles. DuPont, the US chemical company founded in 1802, created in the 1940s, polyvinyl fluoride polymer (PVF).

    This is a common question from the uninitiated. A photovoltaic (or PV System) is an installation of solar panels that can be used to provide electricity and if you generate more energy than it needs, can be fed back to the network. Domestic photovoltaic systems have two main options installations. Existing properties tend to opt for a mounting system “roof”, where the panels are sitting slightly above the roof surface. This causes the least disruption of the structure and the tiling of existing coverage. The alternative is a system of “roof” where the panels replace…

    The season of losing sunnies under the sun is upon us It's happened to the best of us: We've all purchased the chicest of shades only to see them being washed away by the ocean (with our dreams), or killed in a tragic accident at a friend's boozy brunch See also: 10 chic fanny packs because that's a thing that exists Whatever the case, it's best to foolproof your shade game this weekend with a pair of affordably chic pairs you won't have to think twice about.

  • Fireworks warning video will make you rethink your Fourth of July

    Looking forward to festive Fourth of July fireworks? Then maybe don't watch this video. Produced by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, the video shows just how dangerous fireworks can be when handled improperly. The disturbing video demonstrates the possibly disastrous scenarios on dummies, using everything from sparklers to professional aerial fireworks, which the commission says cause grievous injuries when used illegally by inexperienced consumers See also: Video captures moment fireworks hit crowd in Colorado The beginning of the video is a (sorry, government dude) boring…

    4 Jul 2015 | 12:00 pm
    Five Years Ago Last week, we recalled on ASCAP's attack on Creative Commons. This week in 2010, its own members lashed out at it in response. EFF, Public Knowledge and Creative Commons itself all politely responded to the attack, while we noted that the music publishing industry in general has a bad habit of aggression towards consumer's groups and those who respect individual rights. The Swedish Pirate Party was seeking to host The Pirate Bay from inside the Swedish parliament, while Dutch ISPs were fighting against demands that they block the site entirely, even as Dutch public television…
  • Awesome Stuff: Supplying The R For VR

    Leigh Beadon
    3 Jul 2015 | 12:00 pm
    A few weeks ago, we featured the Gloveone and talked about the growing market for supplemental virtual reality devices. We also talked about the coming VR future on this week's podcast episode. But there's another half of the VR world we haven't talked a lot about: the capture and creation of VR environments. This week, we're looking at the Sphericam 2, a 360-degree 4k camera. The Good As VR devices like the Oculus Rift become more popular, there's going to be a huge thirst for content — and in this everyone-is-a-creator world, a huge thirst for content-making tools, too.

  • How Section 1201 Of The Copyright Statute Threatens Innovation

    Cathy Gellis
    2 Jul 2015 | 7:39 pm
    It would take many, many blog posts to fully articulate all the ways that modern copyright law threatens innovation. But one notable way is through Section 1201 of the copyright statute. As discussed previously, Section 1201 is ostensibly supposed to minimize copyright infringement by making it its own offense to bypass the technical protective measures (TPMs) controlling access to a particular copy of a copyrighted work. (Sometimes these sorts of TPMs are referred to as DRM, or Digital Rights Management.) It is a fair question whether forbidding the bypass of TPMs is at all an effective…

    We've talked a bit about the important security certificate effort being put together by EFF, Mozilla and others, called Let's Encrypt, which will offer free HTTPS security certificates, making it much easier to encrypt the web. They've been busy working on the project which is set to launch in a few months. But first... Let's Encrypt has released its first transparency report. Yes, that's right: before it's launched.

  • DailyDirt: Bring Out Your Dead...

    2 Jul 2015 | 5:00 pm
    Disposing of dead bodies is usually not a funny topic for anyone -- except for maybe Monty Python. But until we figure out how to cheat death, we're going to need to deal with corpses. Burying the dead six feet under might not be practical in some places, and not everyone is keen on cremation. Here are just a few other options. The Urban Death Project is working on a human compost pile... that is respectful but at the same time practical. It's not exactly a pleasant thought that the deceased bodies of loved ones would be mixed with organic waste products, but Nature doesn't have a problem…

  • Ventura Fathers Day 5k/10k Race Report 2015

    Pre-race game face. The race is run along the beach in Ventura I ran my first 10k race this past weekend at the Fathers Day 5k/10k race in Ventura, CA on Sunday, June 14, 2015. Last year I ran the 5k and had a great day with a 5k PR. I entered this race pretty much at the last minute. The race was on my radar but I’ve been working on re-gearing my workouts and training and the miles have been rolling in an inconsistent way with very short miles on weekdays and only medium long runs on weekends. My approach for the race was to go in and hit a pace that was just past uncomfortable while…
  • XTERRA Malibu Creek 22k Trail Race 2015 Report

    20 May 2015 | 10:37 pm
    After my crash and burn at the Leona Divide 50/50 race I thought I’d take some time to carefully pick the next race. It was between the Born To Run 50k (30 miler) and the XTERRA Malibu Creek 22k which I had run the year before. The BTR race looked like fun but I finally decided to focus on a course I’ve already run and to shoot for a PR on the XTERRA race. You can see some of my training for the race last year here and this is my race report for XTERRA Malibu Creek 2014. Now that I’ve started using to post workouts and track the activity of others I’m able…
  • Leona Divide 50k 2015 Race Report – DNF

    19 Apr 2015 | 8:03 pm
    I ran the Leona Divide 50k race yesterday with about 500 other trail running fanatics. Unfortunately my race ended around mile 21 when I chose to drop. It was a tough race and thoughts and emotions are still swirling but wanted to put things down in writing although I’m sure my thoughts and judgments will change over the next few days and weeks. The Leona Divide 50k was part of long term plan to attempt and finish my first ultra this year. In December I started training for my first attempt, the Sean O’Brien 50k but then I figured I should attempt a trail marathon so I switched…
  • Bandit Ultra Trail Race 2015 – Volunteering and Photos O’ Plenty

    24 Feb 2015 | 8:24 am
    Last year I signed up for the Bandit Ultra Trail Race 30k and the days leading up to the race I got sicker and sicker. The day before the race I thought I could pull it off even though I had massive body aches and felt like death warmed over. I picked up my bib and shirt but by the time I got home I was a wreck and had to DNS the race. This year I went back to the Bandit a week after running the Sean O’ Brien Marathon but went to volunteer. If you were in the race, I was one of the guys along with JK who helped steer 50k, 30k and 15k runners around the first loop then onto the first…

    9 Feb 2015 | 8:20 am
    I got a little crazy in December and decided to sign up for my first ultra race. After some training I figured it made more sense to do a trail marathon first so with that I changed my registration from the Sean O’Brien 50K to the Marathon race on February 7, 2015. If you’re not familiar with the Sean O’Brien races, this is the second year for the races, held at Malibu Creek State Park in Agoura Hills. Last year runners could sign up for the Marathon, 50k or the 50 miler. The 50 miler turned into a playground for elite runners seeking to qualify for a coveted Western States…

Still, Krugman predicted that folks in the future might not think too much—if anything—of the Internet. Most people would probably agree he was completely wrong on this particular account.

In the 112 years since that first race, the technology utilized by the riders has changed dramatically. Today, the racers ride bikes with frames made of advanced carbon fiber. They have a total of 22 gears to help climb mountains and sprint to the finish line, and they can communicate with their team managers over race radios.

The FBI called for the public's assistance in June, after 10 attacks had taken place. The 11th occurred on Tuesday, when someone severed cables used by Wave Broadband. Tuesday's attack knocked out service to customers in Alameda County, Sacramento and the San Francisco area, said FBI special agent Greg Wuthrich.

    1 Jul 2015 | 2:31 pm
    Information stored on an Android smartphone or tablet is vulnerable to almost 4,900 new malware files each day, according to a new G Data SecurityLabs report. Cybercriminals' interest in the Android operating system has grown, the firm's Q1 2015 Mobile Malware Report revealed. "The report suggests that Android devices are becoming a bigger target for the bad guys and more profitable than in previous years," said Andy Hayter, security evangelist for G Data. The number of new malware samples in the first quarter increased 6.4 percent.
  • 5 Things the Apple App Store Could Do Better

    Chris Maxcer
    1 Jul 2015 | 5:00 am
    I haven't been thrilled with app discovery on the App Store for years, and while Apple has been tweaking things to make it better, it's pretty easy to enter the iOS App Store, look around, and come to the conclusion that only an infinitesimal fraction of 1.5 million apps must be worthy of showing off -- and unfortunately, Disney's "Palace Pets in Whisker Haven" is one of them. Which raises the question: Are there really great apps that never see the light of day hiding out in the App Store, waiting for their chance to get recognized and shine?
  • Faster, Cheaper Fiber Could Rev Up Internet

    John P. Mello Jr.
    30 Jun 2015 | 4:55 pm
    Researchers have found a way to significantly improve the performance of fiber networks, which could lead to benefits for both consumers and Internet service providers. Information in fiber optic cables degrades with distance. When you try to increase the speed at which the data is traveling by boosting the power in the network, degradation gets worse. "It's like quicksand," said Nikola Alic, a research scientist at the Qualcomm Institute, part of the University of California at San Diego. "The more you struggle, the faster you sink."

  • Stepto Rising

    Bill Brenner
    15 Jun 2015 | 5:05 am
    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…

    The plight of One World Labs Founder Chris Roberts has been picked to death on social media this past week. There’s all the trouble he’s in with the FBI for his airplane-hacking claims. There’s the hit to his company, which had to let a lot of good security talent go last week. Some shake their heads in disbelief because he apparently spoke to the FBI about his activities without a lawyer present. Others saw this saga as an example of hackers shooting off their mouths without the scruples to back it up. Me? I’m looking at this and seeing a way forward for Chris…

    Some folks in the security industry see me as a member of the “Equal Respect” movement against so-called booth babes at conferences. Not exactly. I certainly respect the opinion of people attached to the cause, and good for them, fighting for what they believe in. But for me, this has never been about equal respect among the genders. It’s never been about whether women who work as booth babes are being exploited sexually. For me, it’s been about holding vendors’ feet to the fire and making them work harder to build an exhibit off the strength of the products. To…

    At RSA Conference 2015 here in San Francisco, there’s a lot of discussion about weaknesses to the electrical and wifi systems aboard airplanes. The discussion often turns to the case of hacker Chris Roberts (@Sidragon1 on Twitter). There’s been a lot of strong reaction to news of Roberts being pulled from a plane for jokingly tweeting that he might mess around with the plane’s electronic systems. There’s a lot of overreaction to this story. The TSA and feds certainly overreacted. But those who hold Roberts up as a victim of government oppression are overreacting, too.

    Well we probably didn’t need a survey to tell us. But anyway there was one and, of course, it showed us we are a selfie obsessed nation. According to the research, commissioned by Carphone Warehouse,  14.5 million selfies are now taken every day in the UK, with 4.3 million being shared via social media. One in four (24%) of those shots is captured at work and a third are digitally enhanced in a bid for , er, ‘self  improvement (seems it’s not just celebs and magazines who indulge in a bit of Photoshop).

  • Could this Kingii wearable help to prevent drowning? Indiegogo campaign raises $400K in 2 days

    It doesn’t seem you can go a day without some new wearable asking for money on crowdfunding websites like Kickstarter or Indiegogo. But here’s one that promises to be more useful than most – in fact so useful it might actually save your life one day. Called Kingii, it’s a device that claims to help prevent drowning. Although the number of deaths from drowning in the UK is falling (just under 400 last year according to the latest stats from Rospa), worldwide drowning still kills 372,000 according to the World Health Organisation. And obviously during the summer time…

    When looking at the overall landscape of smartphones in the US, most casual conversation is dominated by talk of Apple’s iPhone and Samsung’s Galaxy S—currently that means the iPhone 6 and the Galaxy S6. The thing is, though, that there are other great phones out there that deserve to be a part of the conversation.

    When Jurassic Park was originally released back when I was a kid, I thought it was one of the best movies I had ever seen (in fact, it probably was, given my young age!) Seeing dinosaurs look so realistic was something you had to see, and the only way to truly experience the scope of the movie and the details in the CGI was to see it in a movie theater. Now, here we are some 22 years later, and fourth movie in the series, Jurassic World, is set to be released in a week-and-a-half. Television technology has evolved to the point where the home viewing of today rivals the cinema experience of…

Edward Wong and Chris Buckley write for the Times: China’s Communist Party has ample experience extinguishing unrest. For years it has used a deft mix of censorship, arrests, armed force and, increasingly, money, to repress or soften calls for political change. But as he faces massive street demonstrations in Hong Kong pressing for more democracy in the territory, the toolbox of President Xi Jinping of China…

The display was found out to be excellent, and Raymond said that "there is absolutely no question that for smart watches, OLED is the only way to go for a great display".The Watch in DisplayMate's edition used a Sapphire cover, while the cheaper Watch editions use strengthened glass (same one used in the iPhones and iPads).

  • STT-MRAM MTJ cells can be used to mimick the human brain's synapses

    24 Apr 2015 | 11:17 pm
    Researchers from France's Universite Paris-Sud and the CEA institute say that the probabilistic nature of STT-MRAM devices can be used to create synapses-like neuro system. This can be used to create efficient devices that mimic the human's brain method of operation.MRAM cells (or MTJs) store data using electrons magnetic spin. The technology uses stochastic switching, and so to be sure that a bit is set, you have to applying a current in the MTJ for a long enough time (to increase the probability of the spin changes).

    You’ve drawn up and refined your message, crafted your slides, rehearsed, posted it on, and you’re a week out from presenting on your favorite webinar platform.    But how do you make sure your audience shows up?

  • How The 90s Tech Bubble Saved ‘The West Wing’ from Premature Cancellation

    Greg Ferenstein
    3 Jul 2015 | 1:30 pm
    If it weren’t for the excessive spending of late 90s Silicon Valley startups, one of TV’s most iconic shows would likely have been axed by network executives. “Silicon Valley put The West Wing on television,” the show’s creator, Aaron Sorkin, tells The Ferenstein Wire. Speaking at the annual Aspen Institute Atlantic Ideas festival, Sorkin credits Silicon Valley’s crazy ad spending for the show’s financial viability. “The show tested extremely well with people with home internet access in 1999. And, we were in the middle of the dotcom boom and they wanted some place to…

    3 Jul 2015 | 1:30 pm
    Barely ten years ago the working situation for the average office worker would be unthinkable for many of the employees, freelancers, and entrepreneurs of today. Gone are the days of the traditional office environment, comprising of allocated desks and worker bees clocking in at nine and leaving the office at five. Advances in technology have gradually been contributing to a radical alternative, where staff can work remotely, as efficiently and collaboratively as they could if they were physically in the office. So does this mean we are saying farewell to the traditional office environment?

  • Pulse Play: One Step Closer to Changing Racket Sports Forever

    Will Schmidt
    3 Jul 2015 | 8:00 am
    A little while back I wrote an article about Pulse Play, a sports wearable designed by three time Grand Slam tennis champion Andy Ram. They were only in their early Indiegogo phase, but they claimed that it “could potentially change the face of racket sports forever”. It’s an awesome piece of tech, but if I’m being honest I found the claim to be a bit much. After all, they had to crowdfund $75,000 in order to bring it to even bring it to market, and you can’t change much if you can’t make it to market. Still though, if anybody could climb this mountain it would be a professional…

  • How Technology is Redefining Accounting

    3 Jul 2015 | 1:06 pm
    Technology has led to the evolution of many industries. However, the accounting industry has always been slow to adopt change. I’m sure when most think of an accountant, there is still a stereotypical image of an elderly individual with a calculator on their desk and papers shuffled up in piles throughout the office. This stereotype is probably derived from the fact that accounting practices have been run in a similar fashion for the last twenty years with only minor innovations in the operations of the day to day practice. There is now a new breed of accounting firms that leverage…

    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. He claimed that the procedure to get…
  • The Latest Picture of the Threat Landscape in the European Union – part 1

    Tim Rains
    25 Jun 2015 | 5:32 am
    I had the opportunity to visit with some European based customers when I spoke at the RSA Unplugged conference in London just a few weeks ago. Many of the customers I met with were very interested in a deep dive into the types of threats we see in the region. I have written about the threat landscape in Europe and European Union (EU) extensively over the years, including the articles below:
  • Building Trust: Cyber-Solutions for Europe

    Jan Neutze
    19 Jun 2015 | 9:17 am
    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…
  • Wanted: Strong Leadership for Secure Cyberspace

    Scott Charney
    10 Jun 2015 | 2:50 am
    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…
  • Trust and Transparency: Building Blocks for the Digital Single Market

    Jan Neutze
    3 Jun 2015 | 7:36 am
    What is trust? As defined in the dictionary, it consists of a firm and assured belief in the character, ability, strength, or truth of someone or something. But this hardly does justice to the importance of a principle which underpins every human and social interaction. Trust is fundamental to the functioning of our societies and economies. Even more so in today’s increasingly inter-connected world. Unsurprisingly, building confidence and trust online is a key pillar of the recently unveiled Digital Single Market strategy, an ambitious plan which aims to help Europe reap the benefits of…

  • iPhone 7 rumor rollup: Nixing those homely antenna lines; flexible displays on the way?

    28 Jun 2015 | 2:14 pm
    I thought I very well might need a new iPhone after spending this past week in Delaware at the crazy Firefly music festival during which we had to be evacuated one night because of a tornado warning. But everything turned out well, my iPhone 5 is intact, and now I can take my time awaiting iPhone 6S and iPhone 7 rumors to morph into reality. No more ugly antenna lines on the iPhone? Speculation swirled over the past week about Apple possibly ditching those homely plastic lines across the back of your iPhone…that you probably never noticed in the first place. But the plastic is practical:…

    14 Jun 2015 | 2:31 pm
    Humor alert! Humor alert! Yes, as it relates to Apple.And I’m not talking about the standard eye-rolling stuff of corporate dog-and-pony shows such as last week’s Apple Worldwide Developers’ Conference (WWDC) in San Francisco. Nope, here we have Apple enlisting the aid of former SNL comic Bill Hader, who shares a humorous behind-the-scenes peek at what could have been at WWDC… Alas, there were no iPhone 6S or iPhone 7 rumors in there, just a goat and some larger-than-life fingers. But the actual WWDC’s introduction of iOS 9 did spark speculation about the next flagship iPhones.To…
  • I knew it: Commissioner Gordon and EMC Chief Joe Tucci are twins after all!

    11 Jun 2015 | 2:01 pm
    I've suspected for years that EMC chief Joe Tucci and Neil Hamilton, who played Commissioner Gordon in the 1960s Batman TV series, were one in the same. And now, thanks to a Microsoft brainiac's website, I've been sort of vindicated.Apparently, there's a 78% chance that the two are related.The site, TwinsOrNot, uses Microsoft's newish Face Recognition API, which was introduced at Build 2015. TwinsOrNot is the machine learning-enabled creation of Microsoft employee Mat Velloso, who reportedly built it in 4 hours.To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here

It depends on the kind of sparkler, but the temperature of these sparks can be anywhere from 1800°F to 3000°F (1000°C – 1600°C). How hot is that?

    Five Years Ago Last week, we recalled on ASCAP's attack on Creative Commons. This week in 2010, its own members lashed out at it in response. EFF, Public Knowledge and Creative Commons itself all politely responded to the attack, while we noted that the music publishing industry in general has a bad habit of aggression towards consumer's groups and those who respect individual rights.

  • How Section 1201 Of The Copyright Statute Threatens Innovation

    Cathy Gellis
    2 Jul 2015 | 7:39 pm
    It would take many, many blog posts to fully articulate all the ways that modern copyright law threatens innovation. But one notable way is through Section 1201 of the copyright statute. As discussed previously, Section 1201 is ostensibly supposed to minimize copyright infringement by making it its own offense to bypass the technical protective measures (TPMs) controlling access to a particular copy of a copyrighted work. (Sometimes these sorts of TPMs are referred to as DRM, or Digital Rights Management.) It is a fair question whether forbidding the bypass of TPMs is at all an effective…

  • DailyDirt: Bring Out Your Dead...

    Disposing of dead bodies is usually not a funny topic for anyone -- except for maybe Monty Python. But until we figure out how to cheat death, we're going to need to deal with corpses. Burying the dead six feet under might not be practical in some places, and not everyone is keen on cremation. Here are just a few other options. The Urban Death Project is working on a human compost pile... that is respectful but at the same time practical. It's not exactly a pleasant thought that the deceased bodies of loved ones would be mixed with organic waste products, but Nature doesn't have a problem…

  • 5 Common Evil Habits That Every Successful Businessman Has

    5 Jun 2015 | 6:36 am
    1. Insult Is Their Food Most people say one should be oblivious about the comments passed by others and keep moving ahead to achieve success. I say it is a completely wrong notion. In fact this is most common among great people; they do take insults and criticism very deeply, but do not allow it to affect them negatively. Instead, these leaders have the ability to convert criticism into boosting agents, which allow them to challenge themselves and make things better. Demotivation is a not a word you would find in their dictionary! Source: 2. Pride Too much pride can lead to…
  • Google’s Top 10 Criminals List Includes PM Narendra Modi!

    3 Jun 2015 | 10:55 pm
    A huge uproar on Twitter happened just yesterday and has spilled its effects to today as well. Call it an algorithm gone wrong for the internet giant, or call it a mere coincidence, but the citizens of India were surely angered to see their Prime Minister’s name with the names of some of the most dangerous criminals in the world. It initially started off as a note for Google to ‘let them know’ about this mistake and later almost became an attack on the largest search engine. In the past a similar incident had occurred when Michelle Obama’s name had been listed in a…

  • Yotaphone says bye-bye to Android, switches to Sailfish

    4 Jul 2015 | 6:04 am
    Russian manufacturer Yota, well known for its Yotaphone dual screen phones, has announced that its next devices will no longer operate using Android but Sailfish, an alternative developed by former Nokia engineers at Jolla. Interesting, if not a bit of an odd decision. One has to wonder what prompted this decision, because even though I like Sailfish for what it represents, it's far from a true alternative to Android or iOS. Maybe Yota knows something about Sailfish 2.0 we don't? I'm intrigued.

    At the 1989 Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, Nintendo of America's then-chairman Howard Lincoln took the stage to reveal some unexpected news: the company was partnering with European electronics firm Philips to make a CD-ROM-based games console. While the announcement took everyone in the audience by surprise, Sony engineer Ken Kutaragi was the most shocked of all. Just the night before, he and several Sony executives had been demonstrating a product developed in partnership with Nintendo. It was to be the world's first hybrid console, featuring an SNES cartridge slot and a CD drive,…
  • Safari isn't the problem; the lack of browser choice in iOS is

    3 Jul 2015 | 11:56 am
    Recently there has a been a lot of debate wether Safari is the new IE, or Apple simply is building a user-centric web, but I think that removes focus from the real problem. The problem isn't Safari. It's a somewhat modern browser that in the eyes of some might lack some important features, but overall is still pretty good and modern. The real problem is Apple's lack of browser-choice in iOS, and that's a problem for several reasons. When Apple allows other browsers (not just wrappers!), email clients, mapping services, etc. to be set as default by iOS users, we're going to see a whole bunch…
  • Is this BlackBerry's upcoming Android phone?

    From The Verge: We've expected for a month or so that BlackBerry is working on an Android phone with a "dual curved display" that slides up to reveal a physical keyboard underneath. It is supposedly based on a device that was originally announced at Mobile World Congress back in March, and back then the best image we had to go off of was a low-resolution snapshot of the device being held up on stage. Now, Evan Blass (aka @evleaks) has posted a high-resolution render of the device, codenamed Venice, to Twitter. If this is for real, and BlackBerry doesn't mess it up by tying it to carriers and…
  • Getting a "free" phone now a lot harder in The Netherlands

    Buying a phone in combination with a contract - the mislabeled "free phone" - just became a whole lot more complicated in my home country of The Netherlands. Today, our minister of finance, Jeroen Dijsselbloem (if you follow international news - yes, that one) today announced that he is not going to create an exemption in Dutch finance laws specifically for mobile carriers offering "free" phones on contract.

  • How to Update Files in Google Drive without Changing the Link

    Amit Agarwal
    29 Jun 2015 | 12:59 am
    John uploaded a PDF file in Google Drive and shared it with Peter. A week later, John updated the PDF file and uploaded the new version to Google Drive. Peter however still has the link to the old version and John will have to send him another email informing of the new version. Confusing, right? You’ve probably gone through this situation where you have multiple copies of the same file residing in your Google Drive and, while you would like everyone to use the latest version, they are either not aware that the file has been updated or it takes too much work to locate it in the Drive.

    The English edition of Wikipedia Encyclopedia contains around 5 million articles and if someone were to print the entire Wikipedia encyclopedia into a book, the size of the printed book would roughly be equivalent to 2000+ volumes of the Encyclopedia Britannica (source). Rob Matthews, a graphics design student from UK, converted 5000 pages of Wikipedia into a printed book in 2012. He downloaded few hundred featured articles from Wikipedia and bound them together in a physical book that was almost 1’7″ thick. Rob’s website ( has been taken over by domain…

  • Shadow Warrior 2 preview: More guns, more players, more dick jokes

    4 Jul 2015 | 4:00 am
    Every time I see a Shadow Warrior demo, I know there are going to be jokes of a, uh…phallic nature. I mean, the main character's last name is Wang, and the developers over at Flying Wild Hog are about as mature about it as you'd expect. Which is to say not mature at all. It doesn't matter. I still laughed. Shadow Warrior 2 looks badass.High expectations It's funny how quickly a series can turn around. Look at people's expectations for Tomb Raider, pre- and post-2013. Or Red Dead pre- and post-Redemption. When I walked into my demo for the original Shadow Warrior reboot two years ago, I…
  • Samsung faces lawsuit in China over bloatware on phones

    3 Jul 2015 | 3:16 pm
    A consumer protection group in China is suing Samsung Electronics and a Chinese vendor for placing too many preinstalled apps on phones, and is demanding that the whole smartphone industry eschew bloatware. On Thursday, the Shanghai Consumer Council said it filed public interest lawsuits against Samsung and Oppo for not only placing so much bloatware on their phones, but also making it impossible for the user to easily remove the apps. The consumer protection group has been receiving a growing number of complaints, and found that these preinstalled apps can take up a phone’s storage or…

  • Social Media Purism Stupidity is what Gets You Fired

    Tamar Weinberg
    8 Jun 2015 | 6:00 am
    Ten years ago, social media marketing did not exist. There were online communities. People participated on those communities. It became possible, all of the sudden, for marketers to participate within those communities because they saw an opportunity. And so, all of the sudden, this pure network of sorts became a place for marketers, as they always do, to capitalize upon. In the beginning, a core group of social media marketers were making waves on sites that have since shut down, creating the foundation for social media marketing as we see it today. This very small group of social media…

    In his article for HubSpot, “Confessions of a Google Spammer,” former black hat SEO writer Jeff Deutsch explained why going the “black hat” SEO route is a very bad idea, and why producing quality content and using an inbound marketing approach is the way to go instead. What does “black hat SEO” mean? It essentially means using unethical methods to boost your ratings on search engines. Black hat SEO is writing exclusively for the search engines rather than trying to provide good content for your clients or your clients’ customers or potential customers. It is not only frowned…

Utilizing a wingsuit to fly close or around mountainous terrain has been a sport since the late 1990s, allowing nutjobs (mean this in the utmost positive sense available) to do…

Last week I attended a photography meet-up at one of the local studios. Keep in mind that this was just a casual setting and I didn’t even bring my gear (in hindsight I wish I had as there were some shooting opportunities there with new models). Two of the photographers walked up to me and we started talking about photography and videography in general. One of them asked me…

    There has always been that moment where we have looked at a dress or a suit and wished, if only we could own the same. It is too embarrassing then to go and ask the person where did you pick the dress from and worst is asking the cost of the same. This is where Flipkart’s update to its mobile app would prove to be a life saver, at least to the girls who always have an eye for the next awesome dress. Taking cue from the Amazon Firephone, whereby you can scan objects with the camera and search for it on the Amazon site, Flipkart has brought in a feature where you will be able to click the…

As wrong as that name sounds, Force Touch is all about pressure sensitivity and we have seen it in the new MacBook Airs as well as the Apple Watch. Force Touch provides another way of differential input for the device. It is now being reported that not just the MacBooks and Apple Watches, the next iteration of iPhones would also bring Force Touch which would allow for an extra layer of inputs on the touch screen. The mass production of the device is set to begin sometime next month though the testing has already begun.

    While most of the big names have concentrated on coming up with a flagship device that is hot off the shelves, Lenovo has been doing things slightly differently. Unlike most of the major OEMs Lenovo is choosing to concentrate well on the lower end of the market and the mid-budget range, which is an interesting strategy given that the market in India is not as flourished as that abroad and the paying capacity of the people is significantly lower when compared to say the likes of the Europe or Northern America. Therefore, it makes sense to be present in a segment, which majority of the users…

    Back in the year of 2007 when Drew Houston, CEO of Dropbox, had become frustrated of misplacing his USB storage drive the very idea of using cloud technology for personal data storage was unfathomable. However today, every new data storage company seems to be offering cheap or free cloud storage solutions.

  • 4 Criteria to Evaluate DDoS Mitigation Providers [Infographic]

    26 Jun 2015 | 3:02 am
    How fast could your internal IT department stop a potential DDoS (Distributed Denial of Service) attack? On average, a DDoS attack isn’t detected by IT teams until 4.5 hours after it has commenced and usually it takes another 4.9 hours before mitigation can begin. With IT services outage costs averaging as high as $100,000 per hour, it essentially means that a DDoS attack can cost an Internet-dependent company about $1 million before the company even begins to mitigate the attack. The growing increase in DDoS attacks has increased the demand for cyber security and DDoS mitigation…

A recent research revealed that most users watch YouTube videos via Facebook and this gave Facebook the idea to run its own videos on the site. Facebook already knows which videos are most popular and which ones don’t really need to stay. It gives Facebook the upper hand to enable their own videos to be played and get more hits.

There was a time when the Blackberry Messenger (BBM) was all one had and owning a Blackberry was like a style statement. The addiction for the Blackberry Messenger might have faded with the launch of Whatsapp and other chatting apps, but Blackberry is in no mood to give up. The company is still sure that a number of users are still fond of the messenger that was once loved by all. An all new update for the messenger was launched on Friday and will…

After the recent Internet Retailer Conference and Exhibition, we have had even more companies asking for our advice on which platform to use and why.

    Background From late 1990s until about 2011, before I did a lot of web development and programming, I worked on projects that usually required the functionality offered in the Adobe Creative Suite. Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, and at times InDesign were my tools of choice, simply because that is what I was taught to use in school. Then, in 2011, my laptop’s hard drive failed and numerous attempts to reinstall Windows 7 failed due to it thinking that I was stealing the OS. A friend suggested that I install a GNU/Linux and try free and open-source tools. Shortly after, I was presented…

This document will discuss the way that we here at NuRelm use git for not only version control and collaboration, but also for site database backups. When using git in this manner, it is recommended to either control your own remote git server or to use the private setting for a hosted git server. This would…

    3 Jul 2015 | 9:00 am
    Have you noticed your Solid State Drive (what’s an SSD?) suffering from slipping performance? If Samsung made your drive, it probably employs “Triple Level Cell” (TLC) NAND memory modules. A bug afflicts most–if not all–TLC drives. Fortunately, Samsung made a fix available for one of their drives to Windows users. The problem: After 9-40 weeks, the SSD’s legendary speed can fall beneath even platter-based hard drives. After delays and failure, Samsung now claims it eliminated the bug with its latest firmware update. On the downside, this update can function only…

    There are a lot of things in life that people just don’t think about. We love telling people what we do and what we’re interested in, but most of the time, we have a hard time explaining who we really are. Some say that they’re passionate and full of life but have very little proof of it. Some still think twice when asked what their life mission and goals are, while some have very little to say when asked where they see themselves a good five or ten years from now. All this comes from an evident lack of knowledge about oneself. Yes, we know the basics. We can say “I love puppies” or…

Let’s image we have 3 of those machines, each of which needs 1.5 licenses. Do we need a total of 6 (3 x 2) or of 5 (3 x 1.5 rounded up to 5) licenses? The wording in the Oracle SIG is ambiguous, it reads: “All cores on all multi core chips for each licensed program are to be…

    4 Apr 2014 | 9:21 pm
    They are not going to come to life, they can not, you keep telling yourself - but they will, and this will be no Toy Story affair… there can not be an answer for every stare that peers into your soul tonight-    ”Just open a Toy Store, that might     bring out the best in you!” So they said, your friends, (who could never know the dread-eyed demands  made by these devils reincarnated in stuffed, plasticised glory) who will find you some day, a scatterbox of emotions after a business meeting with toys alone – about who will sell and who will be left weeping - and doubtless they…
  • Eyed (NaPoWriMo Day 4 Poem 4)

    4 Apr 2014 | 9:20 pm
    Monitors stare, phones glaze over, the technology used to watch reversing itself, twisting – almost alive – in your direction, and you feel a sort of chill, thrill, spine-shocking sensation rattle through your fingertips. The eyes and ‘i’s inside the CRTs, MP3s, LCDs and our TVs switch places with yourself now, ensuring that you are on the other side of the display. Quick… wait for your User to weigh their attention back to you – but – but no use, they have turned away to cheat on you with the laptop, and spy on their other technofiles with their Zeus of a device they call a…

  • Office 365: To Cloud or Not to Cloud—That IS the Question!

    Steve Brasen
    21 Jun 2015 | 8:01 pm
    It’s time to take a serious look at Office 365. 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…

    Champions of big data analytics extoll the virtues of massive data stores. Enterprises have so much unstructured data that could help them improve operations and generate new revenue, they say. The more bytes, the better. Some might assume that enterprises will simply push every byte they can find into a Hadoop cluster or data warehouse. [...]

    5 Jun 2015 | 9:18 am
    Here we go again. New releases of Microsoft’s flagship operating system are typically greeted with a combination of angst, curiosity, confusion, and dread in equal measure. It seems just as folks have gotten used to a particular Microsoft version, a new one is released with a completely different interface and requiring a whole new set of operational practices. Even worse, upgrading large numbers of desktops to the new edition in a large enterprise environment is a daunting task often avoided by IT operations teams until and unless it is absolutely necessary to perform a mass migration.

    So, you are a tester? You play games all day long then!Well, not really. Since I started working as a software tester I’ve been hearing this opinion again and again. 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.

  • Jetpack Gives a Boost to Mobile and Rich Media Advertising

    Desdemona Bandini
    25 Jun 2015 | 4:54 pm
    Advertising technology is hot with the rise of mobile, evidenced in part by Verizon’s merger with AOL valued at $4.4 billion, and on a much smaller scale, Undertone’s recent acquisition of mobile ad provider Sparkflow. Until recently, three legacy providers (Sizmek, PointRoll and Google’s DoubleClick) have dominated the rich media market. But that’s changing with a new crop of rich media platforms disrupting the ecosystem with new mobile and non-standard rich media ad formats, one of which – Jetpack – is located right here in Santa Monica.

    I was one of those people who pre-ordered the apple watch at 12 am on April 10 and still got the shipping estimate of June. I had bought the Space black stainless steel with link bracelet. It cost a whooping $1195 with taxes here in California and I was praying that it better be god damn good to justify that price. Sadly, it wasn’t. When I got it on June 2nd, after the usual adrenaline rush of unboxing an apple product subsided, and after using it for about a week, I came to the conclusion that this is a product that Steve Jobs would never have let to be launched in its current state.

    In terms of SEO, the most powerful and basic step a company can take is to begin monitoring your rankings for your main keywords. Everything else—content creation, link building, and social—is likely driven by how well you rank and how far you are from the coveted number one position. Thus, if you have anything less than a crystal clear idea of where you’re at, your entire SEO strategy will suffer. The problem is, checking your ranking is not easy. Doing it the old fashioned way—simply googling your keywords—quickly becomes time consuming. A number of SEO…

These are things businesses know are important and put resources into getting right. By my count, a much more common mistake is either not showing your hours online, or getting them wrong. That’s especially true when your business has special summer hours.

    Google has been taking more anti-piracy measures, sometimes more than the copyright holders themselves These measures include spotlighting legitimate movie, TV show and music outlets, and pushing piracy outlets father down the listings. In essence, Google is making pirated media sites so hard to find that they may as well not be online. But how do they do that? The answer is, of course, an algorithm—in this case, a special update to their search algorithm appropriately nicknamed Pirate. This algorithm has been around since as far back as 2012, but received a major update in…

    Beats 1 espera ofrecer lo mejor en clasificación (curation), pero sin los dolores de cabeza que tenemos con la radio normal, como los anuncios. Y aparte de recordarnos de vez en cuando que estamos escuchando Apple Music, Beats 1 cumple con esa promesa de manera parcial. Zane Lowe podría haber tenido un comienzo interesante en Beats 1, pero eso quedó en el olvido pasada una hora. Tan pronto la música comenzó a sonar, Beats1 mostró sus músculos.

Y digo esto, porque el plan familiar de Apple Music ofrece streaming ilimitado hasta para seis personas por 14.99 dólares al mes.

  • How Ultrabook Performance Degrades Over Time with a Samsung TLC SSD

    Kannon Yamada
    3 Jul 2015 | 9:00 am
    Have you noticed your Solid State Drive (what’s an SSD?) suffering from slipping performance? If Samsung made your drive, it probably employs “Triple Level Cell” (TLC) NAND memory modules. A bug afflicts most–if not all–TLC drives. Fortunately, Samsung made a fix available for one of their drives to Windows users. The problem: After 9-40 weeks, the SSD’s legendary speed can fall beneath even platter-based hard drives. After delays and failure, Samsung now claims it eliminated the bug with its latest firmware update. On the downside, this update can function only…

    Do you have multiple PowerPoint presentations that you need to combine or merge into one presentation?

The second most important factor is whether you need to maintain any animations and transitions that might be included in the inserted presentation. Depending on how you want the inserted slides to appear in the main presentation, you will need…

What everyone did know was that it somehow made the computer run faster. I’ve written many articles in the past about defragmenting your hard drive, the boot sector, the paging file and even the registry. 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 Falcon 9 firmly rooted to the ground, for now. SpaceXThe spectacular failure of the SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket last week underscores a growing problem for NASA: its reliance on private companies and Russia in order to launch many of its crucial missions. The seed of this problem was planted several years ago with several cuts to NASA’s budget and the cancellation of the Constellation program, which was to replace the retired Space Shuttle and allow the US a domestic platform to reach the International Space Station (ISS), the Moon and eventually Mars.

Jean-Michel SANGLERAT/Flickr, CC BY-NDThe Tour de France is the world’s most famous cycling competition, and not just for its sheer length or stunningly picturesque vistas. The Tour captures our attention because the diversity among its 21 gruelling stages pushes its participants to their very limits in ways that other cycling competitions do not. To win the Tour, the competitor has to be a rare breed indeed: a cyclist who can excel in multiple areas, not just a specialist in straight line speed or climbing hills. This year’s…

  • Hacktivist group AnonOpsIndia hacks BSNL website, days after hacking nation's PAN database

    In what appears to be a protest against the Indian government’s stand on net neutrality and the way it is handling Digital India, hacker group AnonOpsIndia hacked BSNL Telecommunications' website on Friday. Hours after the breach, the website is still affected. AnonOpsIndia, which seems inspired by the major hacktivist group Anonymous, describes itself with a similar reverence and asks to be referred to as "Anonymous India".

    Taking a screenshot of what you can see on a computer is easy. Capturing something larger than the screen -- in particular, a lengthy web page -- is much more of a challenge, and even specialist screen capture tools won't necessarily do it.

The package has extensions for each of the main browsers -- Chrome, Firefox, Internet Explorer, Safari and Opera – and it’s very easy to use. Typically you'll click a button on your browser toolbar,…

    Social giant Facebook has been in talks with music labels for the past few months, although nobody is quite sure what the company is planning. Reports say Facebook has met with Universal Music Group, Warner Music Group and Sony Music Entertainment, three of the big music licensing labels. Since this doesn’t seem to involve indie labels, we can assume it isn’t a music streaming deal, but instead a licensing and content protection deal. This would most likely mean Facebook is planning some big changes on its video service, allowing music licensing owners to have more control over video. A…

  • Casa Brutale: Why Hang off a Cliff When You Can Live Inside the Cliff?

    mike chua
    3 Jul 2015 | 12:32 am
    Just when we thought a house hanging on the face of a cliff was super dope, the folks over at the Open Platform for Architecture or OPA shows us that cliff-based dwelling could be made even cooler than Tony Stark’s Point Dume residence in Malibu (which is fictional house, btw) by having the abode inside the cliff. Dubbed Casa Brutale, this ultra modernistic architecture literally sits within the cliff and becomes part of the cliff, save for interjection of modern building materials comprising of three thick concrete slabs and a bunch of glasses. Natural wood are also incorporated into the…

  • Plants survive drought for decades came back to life in seconds when water was added

    3 Jul 2015 | 12:43 am
    Humans can’t survive more than a few days without water, but some plants, in particular mosses, can survive drought for decades and suddenly revive with the first rain. When there’s no rain, Tortula mosses dry out completely and stop photosynthesizing. That is, they stop using carbon dioxide and the light of the sun to grow. They’re virtually dead, reduced to a pile of chemicals, and can stay that way for years. Researchers have found dry, 100-year-old moss samples in a museum that came back to life when water was added. These mosses’ unique ability to survive months, or even years,…

Windows 10 avrà un grande numero d’installazioni (si pensa) tramite aggiornamento, che verrà attraverso Windows 7, 8 ed 8.1.

At online retailers like Amazon, impulse buys are those suggested items you see when you add a certain item to your cart. With e-junkie you can add a button to the shopping cart itself that will let your buyers add another product (that you can curate) to their carts.

I enjoyed writing my first published book and I evangelized Windows PowerShell DSC a lot in last one year. I started writing about containers.

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.

    A few years ago I had a project manager from my team in Scotland send me a copy of Eliyahu Goldratt’s The Goal after learning I’d never read the 1984 classic. At the time, the constraint this team was struggling with was an ability to get software specifications defined that supported the product management requirements. After reading the book, I naturally tried to identify constraints in all my processes, putting them through the standard Theory of Constraints (TOC) steps: identify, determine how to exploit, subordinate all to the constraint, elevate, repeat. I learned quickly that TOC…

Since my youngest son’s interest in technology does not extend much beyond keeping up with the latest news in baseball and playing sports video games, I ordered him a $15 kit to see what would happen. I arrived home Tuesday to find virtual reality glasses attached to my son’s face. His mind was blown by the whole Cardboard experience, from the virtual worlds he explored to…

At its core were two primary explanations: 1) we could never trust a third party to provide our required availability, and 2) the public cloud is not sufficiently secure to…

So when I started my current company, I committed myself to investing in an intuitive user experience instead of traditional online documentation. Unfortunately as the product became more complex and we either failed to contain the complexity or had features that could not be reduced to a simple UI, I found myself looking for alternatives.

    With innovative digital companies bringing new business models and fierce competition to nearly every industry from telecoms to transport, traditional companies are under pressure to step up innovation if they are to grow and remain relevant. But to do so, they’ll need to attract innovative employees into their organisations and give these innovators the space and resources they need to do what they do best. As companies recruit innovators, it is important to remember that innovation is not necessarily the same thing as invention. Where invention is a flower – nurtured through a careful…

    The life of an entrepreneur is not a particularly easy one. Doors open one day and for weeks or months new ones can remain shut. When doors are shut and no amount of knocking will open them, there’s nothing to lean on but certainty. Sometimes that certainty stems from a distant reminder of when a door unexpectedly flung open in the past. Other times that certainty borders on mania, stemming from nothing more than an inexplicable knowing from within. People sometimes remark to me of their admiration of how far I’ve come as an entrepreneur (how far is actually debatable, but that’s a…

Remember when you were a kid and your parents would always misuse words they heard on TV? Yeah, that's what I'm trying to avoid. At a certain age however, using modern slang goes from cringeworthy to hilarious and cute, and these grandmothers have, without question, reached that age. Continue reading...

    CV-Library, the UK’s leading independent job board, is urging UK businesses to ensure their employees are taking lunch breaks. According to recent *statistics only 29% of employees are able to take a full hours’ break for lunch every day, resulting in lower productivity rates. With many UK employees not making the most of their lunch break every day, the Nation’s workers are constantly putting in extra hours, but are the effects of this positive?

Challenging markets, increased competition, rising expectations and always on technology have created a perfect storm of never-ending tasks that beg to be done.

I started using DuckDuckGo well over two years ago. My initial impressions back then was that it was slow, the results were not nearly as good as Google’s and the name was stupid. None of those first impressions turned out to be true. Why DuckDuckGo? They do not track you. It always feels…

Reinstalling my current set of Markdown editors did not help. This did. Huge thanks to Gereon Sommer for the idea in Mac OS X Spotlight Enhancement. The idea is to use a built-in importer, in this case RichText, to do all the work for you. Note that this will probably need to be repeated on each Operating System install or upgrade.

    I love creating new products. I love shipping new products more. That last effin 20% of work to create a new product that takes 80% of all the development time kills me. I really want to ship, but it has to be right. For those who do not know the 80/20 rule, it’s a variant of the misnamed Pareto Principal wherein Vilfredo Pareto created a mathematical formula in 1906 to describe the unequal distribution of wealth in his country, observing that 20% of the people owned 80% of the wealth. This was then applied to other areas and seemed to hold true. In reality, Tom Cargill had it right…

    3 Jul 2015 | 8:39 am
    (Image Credit: iStockPhoto/Andrew Rich) There is certainly no shortage of enterprise software – but there is a shortage of enterprise software that is actually used by employees. Why? Because most enterprise app development teams make software the way they always have: They focus on the value that the app provides to business managers and not enough on how the app could add value to the end user. It’s easy to forget, but your enterprise employees are app consumers and they undoubtedly enjoy using apps like Evernote, Dropbox and Shazam for personal use on their mobile devices.

  • Can employees be incentivised to create stronger passwords?

    2 Jul 2015 | 8:52 am
    (c) Research continues to show the struggle of the password in keeping enterprise security. But is there a solution to keep employees – and employers – in shape? In June, survey data from Centrify found that one in three admitted suffering from ‘password rage’ – one in six were so frustrated they screamed or shouted in the office, while one in seven admit they tear a strip off their colleagues. Back in January, research from SailPoint showed 14% of respondents would give their work password to a third party organisation if the price was right.

    (c) Updated Enterprise mobility offers an unmatched opportunity to transform your business processes. This is not change in the form of a large consultancy approach, where massive business processes are redesigned over months and end users are repurposed, but rather change through simply removing large swaths of administration steps in your current process. By example, let’s look at field requisitions of new equipment or supplies. Currently, a request is filled out or emailed so it can pass by appropriate management who will either reject or approve it for processing. The…
  • Why the enterprise mobility management market needs a rethink

    1 Jul 2015 | 7:21 am
    (c) A high-stakes battle has emerged in the rapidly-changing market for enterprise mobility management, also known as EMM. Three of the market's biggest names — Microsoft, MobileIron and VMware — have each made a string of moves over the past month that reveal polarising strategies. At one end are companies that primarily bundle EMM into a wider proprietary set of software; at the other, those more focused on specialism in mobility and teaming up with "best of breed" partners. The implications of these contrasting approaches reach far beyond EMM as we think of it…

    (c) DevOps: you’ve almost certainly heard of it, you may or may not know what it is, but either way it appears to be on its way. Some analysts preach about DevOps unabated; IDC argued in a recent thought piece how organisations deploying enterprise mobility and cloud computing solutions will profit by driving together collaboration across key business stakeholders. Yet the truth is a little less clear cut. Research conducted by TechValidate and Red Hat on behalf of Enterprise AppsTech in May found a wide range of responses; 26% of the 114 global Red Hat customers…

    Uber has been under pressure from many politicians and taxi companies to halt its services. In April, MPP John Fraser was seeking to ban Uber and other ride-sharing services and tabled the “Protecting Passenger Safety Act” that specifically “address[es] the issue of app-based bandit cabs in the province.” However, this didn’t stop the company from operating and facilitating thousands of Canadian jobs, and today the Ontario Superior Court judge officially dismissed Toronto’s request for an injunction against Uber — specifically UberX, UberBLACK and UberTAXI.

The EU Commission wanted the rules to be implemented earlier, but the date was pushed-back in order to win support from the European Parliament and Council.  The rules will prevent mobile operators from charging huge premiums for use of their services when travelling to other European countries; which has led consumers to "bill shock" on their return.  Operators must replicate this model and put more effort into innovation…

However, the synchronised acceleration of the three Vs is not being mirrored by businesses, whose ability to harness big data is evolving in waves.

    3 Jul 2015 | 9:41 am
    Low noise, high performance I have to admit, even though I'm rocking a pair of very capable GeForce GTX 780 Ti graphics cards, some of the fancy GeForce GTX 980 Ti options have me thinking about upgrading. Specifically, EVGA earlier this week announced its dual-BIOS GeForce GTX 980 Ti Classified that's built for overclocking, and now Asus is flaunting its factory overclocked Strix GeForce GTX 980 Ti with DirectCU III technology. DirectCU III is Asus' newest generation air cooling solution for graphics cards. According to Asus, it boasts a 220 percent bigger cooling surface area for better…
  • Yes, There's Yet Another Windows 10 Technical Preview Build Available (10162)

    3 Jul 2015 | 9:12 am
    Three builds in a week Windows Insiders who signed up to the Fast ring for Windows 10 Technical Preview builds probably thought they'd at least have time to exhale in between new releases, and for most part, that's been true. However, after releasing two builds back-to-back earlier this week, Microsoft has now made available its third Windows 10 build in just four days. In case the build numbers are starting to get confusing, here's a look at the past three builds, including the newest one released on Friday: Build 10158: June 29, 2015 Build 10159: June 30, 2015 Build 10162: July 2, 2015 What…
  • Dear Maximum PC Community and /r/PCMasterRace

    2 Jul 2015 | 4:09 pm
    Several months ago, Maximum PC ran a story in the January 2015 issue that was called "Maximum PC, Minimum Effort: The lazy guy's alternative guide to being a tech guru" It was supposed to be a cheeky article about PC maintenance with the occasional satirical twist, but sadly, it didn't work. What we ended up with was an article chock-full of terrible advice that left readers angry and confused. For that, I personally apologize.  Here's a snippet from the article that's gotten readers on Reddit so riled up:I have no qualms about saying that the article fell short…

  • Thoughts on Google Fit

    I was an early adopter of Fitbit and have to say that is honestly paved the way for fitness bands and apps we have today.

There are however some things that Fitbit is doing better than Google Fit and Apple’s HealthKit so far and one of those things is it connects you with your friends with a common goal of improved fitness and coaching each other along. Neither Google Fit or…
  • Voicemail is dead, long live Voicemail!

    I’ve come to the conclusion that for me at least it is no longer very convenient to use voicemail. You know, that feature most cell phones have that’s been made modern and comes from the era when we all owned landline phones and had answering machines with cassette tapes? Yeah I’ve found voicemail to be utterly useless now that almost everyone is using Email, Social Media or SMS. Why do I want to call into voicemail wait a few seconds and then delete the message every time I get a missed call? (FYI I usually do not listen to voicemail but instead mass delete and send an email) This…
