Now before I explain why I think the trend is clear, let me state that I do not believe that each link in this chain replaces the one that preceded it. I believe that each stage remains relevant but its relevancy decreases as the new stage enters. So let’s take a walk down memory lane. Remember websites? I kid.

Each button is associated with a certain brand or product, and when you set it up (via smartphone) you associate the button with a specific size or quantity (like, say, two 12-packs of Starbucks K-cups or one 2-pack of 50 oz. Tide detergent) and shipping speed. When you start to get low on said product, mash the button and Amazon takes care of the rest.Read more of this story at Slashdot.

Multiple factors are involved, but in nearly every case on record the result is debilitating; stillbirth or neonatal death are common.

As has been widely discussed, music streaming services have come to the fore over the last several years, thanks to the popularity of Pandora, Spotify and other web-delivered models that let consumers get a wide sampling of music in a more convenient manner than the purchase-and-download model first popularized by Apple’s iTunes.

  • The Evolution of Communication: From Journalism to Blogging to Tweeting. And Now? Meerkasting?

    30 Mar 2015 | 3:57 am
    I have been thinking about this trend way before Meerkat was a thing. In fact, I believe it first occurred to me before Twitter was a thing. Now before I explain why I think the trend is clear, let me state that I do not believe that each link in this chain replaces the one that preceded it. I believe that each stage remains relevant but its relevancy decreases as the new stage enters. So let’s take a walk down memory lane. Remember websites? I kid. But really, remember traditional journalism? You know, those big sites for which journalists, real journalists would write after completing…
  • Entrepreneurs: It is Officially No Longer Acceptable to Say These Four Words

    23 Mar 2015 | 12:27 am
    By: Hillel Fuld (@hilzfuld) There are many advantages to having an active blog. In fact, I wrote a whole post about why everyone should blog. Branding, traffic, relationships, and so many other reasons people should be generating content of some sort on a regular basis. Over the years however, I discovered one more perk of blogging. Whenever something annoying happens in my world and I notice it is happening consistently, instead of addressing the issue each time, I try to write about it and send that post to the next person who does it. Ok, that sounds totally cryptic. Here are a few…

Twitter has been monumental in helping me form amazing relationships across the globe and I have zero intention of slowing down. Zuck and Marissa, I am looking at you. I will let you choose who goes first. Anyway, some amazing interviews over the years but this one, this one has a special place in my heart. Honestly, I have been following Mark on Twitter for as long as I can remember and just quietly learning from the man daily for years. There are some people…
  • How to Cope with the Insanely Saturated Social Landscape when Trying to Build a Business

    If you are active on the social web, surely, you get this question a few times a week, at the very least. “How do you find the time to be everywhere? I mean there are so many platforms out there and you seem to be active on all of them. How do you balance it all?” Truth be told, the social landscape is a little bit out of control. Every week, there is some new app that marketers will tell you, you have to pay attention to if you want to build your brand. First it was just Facebook, then how could you possibly not be on Twitter? Then Linkedin entered the content marketing space? Then…

At 116, Gertrude Weaver was already the oldest person in America.

    I've said it before and I'll say it again: Kids these days have it so good. When I was a kid, we didn't have iPads. The closest thing to drawing on a tablet was using the Magna Doodle. To learn how to draw, we found a picture from a book or a magazine and used tracing paper. To play word games like hangman, we used paper and pencil.

    It's been a unique experience for me as a Techdirt writer, one who does not delve into the net neutrality debates and posts very often, to watch the effect the wider coverage about net neutrality has had on the general public. Without being scientific about it, there are certain markers for story penetration I notice and have noticed specifically when it comes to net neutrality. For instance, a couple of months ago, my father called me up with a simple question: "What should my position be on net neutrality?" The question itself isn't generally useful, but the simple fact that a grandfather…

    MuckRock is again reporting on a mysteriously missing document -- one that was previously acknowledged to exist but come public records request time, simply can't be found. A couple of months ago, it was the FBI claiming that a Drone Impact Assessment it had previously "released" in response to an FOIA request (read: redacted in full) suddenly couldn't be located. Now, it's the gold standard of Freedom of Information obfuscation -- the New York Police Department -- claiming the same thing.

    Police accountability remains a major concern. Lawsuits alleging improper police conduct are filed seemingly nonstop. The Department of Justice continues to investigate police department after police department for a variety of civil rights violations. More and more police departments are equipping body cameras on their officers in hopes of trimming down the number of complaints and lawsuits filed against them. Meanwhile, the public has taken police accountability into its own hands, thanks to the steady march of technology -- which has put a portable phone in almost every person's hands, and…
  • Unpatentable Vegetables Are Now Patentable In Europe

    As Techdirt has reported, in the US, software patents are getting harder to obtain as the US Patent Office applies the important Alice v. CLS Bank ruling from the Supreme Court. In Europe, "programs for computers" are explicitly excluded from patentability according to Article 52 of the European Patent Convention -- but "only to the extent to which a European patent application or European patent relates to such subject-matter or activities as such." That cunningly opaque distinction between "programs for computers" and "programs for computers as such" has allowed thousands of patents for the…

This is versus Apple streaming the content themselves which would no doubt be more costly for the company. That being said it doesn’t come as a complete surprise because as it stands, content providers such as Fox, CBS, Disney, and etc. all have their own streams that rely on delivery networks such as EdgeCast, so in some ways this shouldn’t…

In fact according to the benchmarks, it turns out that the 2015 12-inch Retina MacBook is on par in terms of performance with Apple’s 2011 MacBook Air.

    Sony Mobile’s shot callers must have been delusional if they thought for a second they’d get away with simply forgetting about contemporary non-Xperia Z smartphones mere months after their commercial debuts. Fortunately, the Japanese OEM quickly regained its grasp on reality, reevaluating the company’s stance on Lollipop updates for the Xperia T2 Ultra and Xperia C3. The 2014 mid-range pair is… Continue reading Surprise: Sony will bring Lollipop goodies to the Xperia T2 Ultra and C3 after all Related posts: Sony goes on Lollipop updating spree with Android 5.0 for Xperia tablet duo…

    LG has just basically confirmed the time and multiple venues of their next-gen flagship announcement, and unlike the decidedly predictable Samsung Galaxy S6 and HTC One M9 coming-out parties earlier this year, we should probably expect the unexpected here. Yes, for a second there it seemed as if the G4 would follow its rivals’ suit and become an open book months… Continue reading Glamorous LG G4 introduction slated for April 28, leather back in tow?

    Google has announced two new budget-busting Chromebook computers, a tablet/notebook convertible with a full swivel screen, and a Chrome computer-on-a-stick. The Haier Chromebook 11 and the Hisense Chromebook both are available for preorder for $149. The Asus Chromebook Flip will hit the market this spring with a $249 price tag. The Asus Chromebit will be available this summer for less than $100. "Chromebooks ... could and should put increasing pressure on lower-end PCs and laptops," said Charles King, principal analyst at Pund-IT.

    Microsoft has raised the curtain on its new Surface 3 tablet, targeting users who want a robust Windows tablet at an iPad price. Up to now, those looking for a full-featured Windows tablet had to spend $799 for a Surface Pro 3, but some customers will find their needs can be met with the new $499 Surface 3. "It allows Microsoft to continue to market and promote all of the innovations of the Surface Pro 3 and have a go-to product for those who aspire to get a Pro model, but it's not in their budget," noted Directions on Microsoft's Wes Miller.
  • India's Tussle With Internet Freedom

    Peter Suciu
    1 Apr 2015 | 5:00 am
    The Supreme Court of India last week struck down a law that curtailed the freedom of online speech. The law permitted arrests for posting "offensive" content online. The highest court in India ruled that Section 66(A) of the Information Technology Act was unconstitutional, and in its ruling said it had no hesitation in striking it down. The court had examined the legality of the law, which made posting information considered grossly offensive or menacing in character punishable by up to three years in jail.

    Xbox and 343 Industries on Sunday released two live-action trailers for Halo 5: Guardians to encourage Xbox One owners and holdouts alike to "hunt the truth." The trailers aired during the season finale of The Walking Dead. In one trailer, the story catches up with Master Chief scorning an injured and supine Spartan Locke with an unsettling benediction. In the other trailer, the roles are reversed, and it's Spartan Locke who's walking menacingly up to the downed Master Chief.

    31 Mar 2015 | 5:00 am
    The White House in January proposed updates to the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act that have stirred controversy within the cybersecurity industry. The proposals would allow prosecution under the CFAA of insiders who abuse their ability to access information, while setting aside insignificant conduct. "If the proposed legislation were to be enacted, it would certainly have a chilling effect on cybersecurity research," Chris Doggett, managing director at Kaspersky Lab North America, told TechNewsWorld.

  • Four Security Exhibits That Won Without “Booth Babes”

    Bill Brenner
    30 Mar 2015 | 4:25 am
    After last week’s post on RSA Conference banning so-called booth babes, I heard from a lot of people who agree vendors need to find other ways to attract attention during security conferences. One reader correctly noted that this unfortunate phenomenon isn’t the result of bad intentions. It’s just that some marketing teams don’t know any better. They assume the booth babes work because they see others using them. What to do about it? Give marketing practitioners some examples of successful exhibits that succeeded without the sexism. Here are four examples of exhibits…
  • RSA’s Move to Ban Booth Babes

    Bill Brenner
    26 Mar 2015 | 3:33 am
    The language above has been added to exhibitor contracts for RSA Conference 2015. Zenobia Godschalk, a communications practitioner in the security industry and vocal critic of so-called “booth babes” at conferences like RSA and Black Hat, dropped me a line to say RSA added the language to force vendors to stop with the skimpy clothing. It appears the years of blowback over booth babes has had an affect, at least in RSA’s case. In an email, Zenobia said, “We are thrilled to report that RSA has actually changed their language in their vendor agreements this year! It now…
  • What “Hug-Gate” Says About The Infosec Community

    Bill Brenner
    23 Mar 2015 | 4:07 am
    Every once in awhile, someone in the security community says something on Twitter that ignites emotional discussion (some call it drama). This past weekend, it started with a comment about hugs. Someone commented that some security cons involve a lot of hugging and that it makes her uncomfortable. Someone responded with a comment about the benefits of hugs. Then all hell broke loose. Why, the first person asked, do people get offended for not wanting hugs at these events? After all, isn’t it well proven that our industry is loaded with people who suffer from social disorders? Some…

    I find myself sitting in a hotel room in some random city this evening with a glass of wine, several open powerpoint decks and Family Guy on the television. A moment of reflection if ever there was one. It occurs to me that Liquidmatrix just had it’s 17th birthday in 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 or podcasting. I’ve been making a lot of architectural changes to the site and now, I’m going to…

The technology has spawned a lot of cool projects, like this visual of a botnet from my former employer, The enhanced capability also leads to some truly ridiculous creations.

    1 Apr 2015 | 7:18 am
    We’re all use to seeing Twitter ads in our feeds, but now the social media site is testing advertising in user profiles, too. THUMBS DOWN EMOJI. According to Re/code, the company’s testing promoted pages on a limited number of profile pages, presumably to see if people revolt/notice. They won’t be right next to your face looking like you endorse them, or anything. They’ll be a few tweets in and be marked as ‘Suggested by Twitter’, so it doesn’t look like you’re shilling for some of your favourite brands. Still, if someone isn’t familiar with how Twitter works and glances…

She’s partnered with Endemol Beyond on the new project, which will distribute content on YouTube, Dailymotion, and Roku, as well as via Icon’s own website and app. For now, it’s only available in the UK and the US but will expand into Europe and Asia later in the year.

And Three have been driving it around the beauty spots of Barcelona, stopping to take selfies at all the best spots. Why, you ask? Well, Three has just launched their Feel At Home service – which lets you use your minutes, texts and data abroad as if you were at home, with no extra charges – in Spain, the UK’s most popular holiday destination. So they kitted out a bus with hashtags and party gear, equipped us all with selfie sticks and the…

    It seems a little late to be writing this story in 2015, but we can announce at last with full hearts and happy faces that the tech industry has finally noticed that women exist. A coalition of tech companies including smartphone and smartwatch manufacturers, software firms and social media companies today announced their joint venture to ensure women are an equal part of the tech community. In practice, this means: – No more half-dressed booth babes gyrating on podiums at tech trade shows – No more sexist smartphone ads – No more censoring social media reviews for…

    April Fools’ Day is one of the worst days of the year, fact. I spend the whole morning giving the side eye to every press release I receive (‘A new digital radio range? A likely story.’) But as much as pranks are clearly terrible, when someone puts a lot of effort into one, you have to begrudgingly give them credit. And this year, Microsoft has pulled out at least some of the stops. They’ve reimagined MS-DOS for Lumia as a totally genuine new mobile operating system, nudge-nudge, wink-wink. At least, that’s the April Fool. But the company’s actually gone to the trouble of creating…

    Nvidia has announced an update to its SHIELD Hub app, which adds support for multiple games controllers for the first time. SHIELD Hub is an Android app available for phones and Nvidia SHIELD home consoles, which lets you play both Android games and PC games on your Android device (the latter streamed from a PC running the game). The update now means that you can connect up to four controllers (depending on the game) to play multiplayer. Obviously if you’re playing on your phone, you probably want to plug your phone into the TV, so that you and your friends aren’t crowding a tiny…

    Spot the difference: Top, Spotify’s User Interface and below, Tidal’s UI Seems like the gloves are well and truly off in the digital music streaming wars. On Twitter a row is brewing as developer and founder of SimpleAsMilk James Seymour-Lock has accused Tidal of double standards, ripping off Spotify’s user interface for its own digital streaming service at the same time as complaining about artists being ripped off by streaming services like Spotify. Got to say he may have a point, but who ripped who off is more difficult to say as both have been around a little while now.

I’m not sure I’m very good at hand-eye coordination but I was good at Manic Miner. I used to drive my parents slightly mad because you used to play it on the telly, obviously, so they wouldn’t be able to watch.” C’mon media, someone ambush Ed with a Spectrum and test his skills.

    As part of a special promotion, Samsung will apparently be giving its most loyal fans a free Galaxy S6, if they’re able to show up with all of the previous phones. According to Chosun, customers will need present SK Telecom with everything from the original Samsung Galaxy S to last year’s S5. That’s 13 phones since 2010 (!). One other interesting fact to come out of SK Telecom is that there are apparently 17,000 people still using the original Galaxy S… so it is probably time for an upgrade when the S6 comes out. We’ll let you know if there is a similar promotion…

    Remember Playstation Home? The weird PS3 avatar pseudo-game that Sony released back when it was in a panic about the appeal of the Wii and its Mii characters. Yesterday, Sony finally pulled the plug. According to Develop Online, the service has finally been switched off for European gamers – following the North American and Japanese switch-off at the end of last year. Whilst the service doesn’t seem to have any obvious successor, it is perhaps unsurprising that one developer that worked on it has since gone on to work on VR applications. Perhaps by the time Sony relese Morpheus,…

    As some of you know, I've been following OLEDs for over 15 years (OLED-Info itself is over 10 years old) - and the promise of flexible displays has always been there. In fact most people believe this is the true major benefit of OLED displays.In 2013, both Samsung and LG started to produce flexible AMOLED displays. This was a watershed moment for the OLED industry - but only for people in the know. The production capacity was small, the adoption was limited and most people never heard of the G Flex, the Galaxy Round or the numerous Samsung wearable devices that used flexible OLEDs.Read more…

    According to Korean site ETNews, Samsung Display decided to re-enter the OLED TV market.

The WRGB (white OLED with color filters and four sub pixels) was originally developed at Kodak, and then bought by…

    For Jon Carder, founder and CEO of Mogl, driving online to offline commerce is like the Holy Grail of the internet. That’s because, as he explains, it’s difficult to track somebody who sees an online ad and then goes to purchase the offer in person. Consider that about 92 percent of all commerce still takes place offline. If companies could figure out a plan to track somebody from online to offline, they would not only help their own business but also attract advertising dollars from other companies. “It’s been really hard to find a solution for this issue.

  • Why does the “Industry” predict what happens when it’s the Community who Adopts?

    Christopher Kusek (PKGuild)
    19 Mar 2015 | 11:07 am
    This is a particularly pressing question that has come up recently.  I even put out a post about it in the SolarWinds Thwack community because they’re such a diverse and engaging community I love the feedback they tend to present! I’ve seen a lot of predictions over the years, whether it is “This is the year of VDI!” (Currently we are on the 7th “year of VDI”)  Or “Big Data is here!” we all know the infinite number of predictions we constantly hear about, I’ve even included one of my own for the coming 2015 from from? ?SingleHop who hit me up at the end of 2014…

Sure, sure they did and sure they do!  However by officially entering the realms of the VMware EVO:RAILS Family with other legitimate server vendors like Dell, and such (not to be confused with the VERY confusing NetApp EVO:RAILS Solution ;))   Well, let’s just say this could be a game changer! Especially as we peel back the layers a bit!   So that said… Let’s get started! :) So, what exactly is VSPEX BLUE you might be…

Regular, normal stuff. Except when you apply a ‘space’ layer to the day.

It’s been suggested that, with the right support, the digital sector could grow seven times faster than overall EU GDP in years to come. Achieving a fully-functioning digital single market could translate into an additional 340 billion euro in economic growth. The incentives for this new Commission to embrace digital technologies…

    An interesting day the SCTE Spring Lecture yesterday – thanks to those speaking and organising the event. The headline topic was DOCSIS 3.1, which is the next evolution of cable modem technology. I have spent the last few years working with DSL-based ISPs, so it was good to find out what’s been going on with cable. DOCSIS 3.1 updates cable modem technology by increasing the potential spectrum available and improving the efficiency of is of spectrum use. It also opens the door to better integration between the TV data sides of cable technology, as well as standardising platform management…
  • Riepl's Law - Why email isn't going away anytime soon

    Layers of News Media over time - Business will be no different(from We've written about this a few times on Broadstuff, but not for Social Business. I wrote about this application of Riepl's Law to Enterprsises over at the Agile Elephant Blog, but in short: It’s never going to happen. Email will be here for a long time still, so get used to living with it. Social Business systems that can’t cope with email will die a long time before email will. The reason for this is that, in the entire history of new media from the invention of speech onwards, newer and further…
  • The Darwinian Stew of Web 2.0

    10 Mar 2015 | 4:08 am
    News this week that GigaOm and FriendFeed have closed down. GigaOm was one of the (better, IMO) Tech blogs-cum-digital news sites, the problem was (i) so many others also opened up at the same time, and (a salutary lesson) GigaOm was more about sound analysis rather than froth or shilling. If there is one lesson from Digital media it is that heavyweight content usually sinks, we are still largely in the "digital weeds" phase of ecosystem development in digital media . TechCrunch* soild itself to AOL, this does raise questions of whether there will be a larger shakeout soon. Friendfeed was one…

    I published a summary of the Lecko report on Social Business is France 2015 over on the Agile Elephant blog, in two parts: - Research into the evolution of deployment and what companies are doing - Research into the software and comparisons of features There is quite a lot that is useful for UK and other countries rather than being just France specific. The most powerful part of the work however, in my view, is the analysis of 35 software packages against c 550 datapoints (see analysis diagram of one package, Jive, above), its a very good way of comparing for selection and "best fit"…

This is confirmed in my view by the latest McKInsey report on the subfect, which essentially notes that it is here to stay, and more and more companies expect to expand its usage.

    According to several reports, Telecom Regulatory Authority of India is planning a regulatory framework for regulating internet based IM apps like Whatsapp, Hike, Skype and the likes. Earlier, Airtel had gone one step ahead and imposed separate tariff for using such Internet based VoIP and Over the top (OTP) apps before rolling back that decision. Activists have widely opposed such moves on account of net-neutrality. Voice service providers however have faced drastic decline in traditional revenue streams like SMS and voice, with many sections using these apps to communicate instead. TRAI…

It can be installed in other devices like Nexus officially.Cyanogen OS12 is based on Android Lollipop whereas the previous version was based on Kitkat.

    It's been a unique experience for me as a Techdirt writer, one who does not delve into the net neutrality debates and posts very often, to watch the effect the wider coverage about net neutrality has had on the general public. Without being scientific about it, there are certain markers for story penetration I notice and have noticed specifically when it comes to net neutrality. For instance, a couple of months ago, my father called me up with a simple question: "What should my position be on net neutrality?" The question itself isn't generally useful, but the simple fact that a grandfather…

But for folks who like to waste time and smirk at the discomfort at others, here are a couple videos to watch featuring cars and some crazy driving.

    MuckRock is again reporting on a mysteriously missing document -- one that was previously acknowledged to exist but come public records request time, simply can't be found. A couple of months ago, it was the FBI claiming that a Drone Impact Assessment it had previously "released" in response to an FOIA request (read: redacted in full) suddenly couldn't be located. Now, it's the gold standard of Freedom of Information obfuscation -- the New York Police Department -- claiming the same thing.

    Police accountability remains a major concern. Lawsuits alleging improper police conduct are filed seemingly nonstop. The Department of Justice continues to investigate police department after police department for a variety of civil rights violations. More and more police departments are equipping body cameras on their officers in hopes of trimming down the number of complaints and lawsuits filed against them. Meanwhile, the public has taken police accountability into its own hands, thanks to the steady march of technology -- which has put a portable phone in almost every person's hands, and…
  • Unpatentable Vegetables Are Now Patentable In Europe

    1 Apr 2015 | 1:37 pm
    As Techdirt has reported, in the US, software patents are getting harder to obtain as the US Patent Office applies the important Alice v. CLS Bank ruling from the Supreme Court. In Europe, "programs for computers" are explicitly excluded from patentability according to Article 52 of the European Patent Convention -- but "only to the extent to which a European patent application or European patent relates to such subject-matter or activities as such." That cunningly opaque distinction between "programs for computers" and "programs for computers as such" has allowed thousands of patents for the…

    I’ve been playing around with music again. For my birthday, I ordered Teenage Engineering’s Factory OP-16 synth, which has been fun to tinker with. Here’s a quick series of patterns I slammed together into a track on it: I’ve been trying to get it to play nicely with my Kaossilator 2, but they don’t sync, so it’s all upon my impeccable timing to get them totally aligned, which is a little difficult.

    So yesterday, I went to the Microsoft Store at the Domain, and traded in my just under a month old i5 128GB Surface Pro 3 for the top of the line i7 500GB model. I did this with funds I made from selling my Cintiq Companion this past week on Amazon Marketplace for ~$78 more net profit than I originally paid for it (thanks to getting it this summer when Wacom was running a summer ~$500 off sale + Cintiq Companion’s being hard to come by currently while everyone awaits the release of the newly announced Cintiq Companion 2).

    I’ve had advertisements on this site forever. I just removed them. There’s no point. In any case, if you like the things I tend to write and do and you want to motivate me to keep doing these things / do them more often, I set up a Patreon page where you can become a patron. Although, I must say, although I like the idea behind Patreon, I don’t like the execution much. It’s very inflexible. Why can’t I set up different types of patronage for different endeavors at different price points? Why is everything either recurring by month or recurring by thing created?

Turns out, it’s a huge step forward in the luxury department in more ways than one. Gone are the days of luxury cars being plodding gunboats. Cadillac is trying to join in on the movement toward more powerful, efficient luxury sedans with the CT6, and they’re doing it both inside and outside the car.

    Web Designing
    30 Mar 2015 | 12:20 am

  • Old iPhones can help children with autism

    1 Apr 2015 | 11:26 am
    A couple of weeks ago, my daughter Grace lost her iPhone. Grace is a 15-year-old with a diagnosis of autism and a severe speech delay. Some people would call her "non-verbal" but she can say a few words and if people don't understand she shows them a picture. When Gracie was small, she used to have to carry a big book around to hold these pictures, but then the iPhone was invented and a very kind person gave us one to try. I was able to transfer all her pictures onto a folder on that phone and whenever we didn't have a picture, we could take a photograph and add that to her collection. Grace…

  • Google unveils lots of new ChromeOS devices

    31 Mar 2015 | 2:26 pm
    Google has unveiled a whole lot of new Chrome OS devices today - mostly laptops - but there's also a small Chromecast-like dongle that you can slip into any HDMI port and turn that display into a full-on Chrome OS machine. It's only $99, which puts it right into impulse-buy territory. One of the laptops is a convertible with a touchscreen, which seems odd at first because Chrome OS isn't really built with touch in mind. It starts to make more sense, however, when you combine with the news that Google is opening up the App Runtime for Chrome to all Android developers, allowing them to get…
  • Microsoft unveils Surface 3, with terrible EU pricing

    31 Mar 2015 | 9:01 am
    The result is Surface 3, as well as a mobile-broadband version, Surface 3 (4G LTE). It's the thinnest and lightest Surface we've ever shipped. It runs full Windows, including desktop applications. It includes a one-year subscription to Office 365 to help you really get down to work. And it starts at just $499. I was genuinely excited when I read about this Surface 3. I actually really like the Surface concept, but the Surface Pro 3 is simply too powerful (and thus, too expensive) for my specific workload (minor translation work, proofreading, watching some videos, some browsing, that sort of…
  • The Verge's Samsung Galaxy S6 review

    31 Mar 2015 | 8:46 am
    The reviews of the new Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge are starting to roll in. The Verge seems first. But design at this deeper level matters. And it's something Samsung has chosen - or been forced - to contend with. The Galaxy S6 is the first time I've felt like Samsung might finally be grappling with the idea of what a smartphone ought to be on an ontological level. No, the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge don't fully tick off every single box in that checklist. But they've done something better: become phones that are more than the collection of their parts. Samsung finally copied the right thing: caring…

    The 12 people who read this blog know how much I don’t like April 1 on the internet. It’s the day when people who aren’t funny on the internet try hard to pretend they are funny on the internet. What results is me using a term one rarely hears except to describe humor on April Fools Day: ham-handed. The saddest example of this was in the early days of TechCrunch when each year, the day would start with some news item about one company purchasing another company for some reason that made no sense. As a different version of that same “prank” appeared in…

But then, in what appeared on Twitter to be a surprise to even its employees, Gigaom ceased operations with a post on its front page saying this: Gigaom recently became unable to pay its creditors in full at this time. As a result, the company is working with its creditors that have rights to all of the company’s assets as their collateral. All operations have ceased. We…

    The following is from the current Ideal Email from Hammock Inc. Read the entire idea post here: You Can’t Control How Others See 50 Shades of Blue. Years ago, while Marissa Mayer was still at Google, an article appeared in the New York Times about the way she tested 41 shades of blue to decide which to use in a navigation bar. Many people still use that as a benchmark for the lengths a marketer should go to make sure something works. But there’s a “rest of the story” to the 41 shades test, as shared by Douglas Bowman, Google’s first visual designer. When he left Google to become…

While I was scratched and bruised, the major injuries were invisible: a concussion that wiped out a couple of hours of my memory and what turned out to be–although I didn’t realize it until a couple of months of denial–a chipped-off bone in my left hand that required surgery and a wire that’s still inside my left ring finger. But enough about me. It was my bike I was…

That means if you come across an interesting video on Facebook, you can easily put it on your blog without having to direct your audience to the Facebook website. There are two important points to consider though. One, you should only embed videos that are public. Facebook does provide the embed code for private videos that are shared with you or your network but your audience won’t be able to play these videos on your website. The other issue is that Facebook still uses the Adobe Flash player…

It turned to Kickstarter, where many deemed the idea of a router/connected-home hub good enough to pour more than $850,000 into the effort. But even the staunchest believers must have had their faith tested when an undercooked device showed up in July, 2014, more than nine months behind schedule.The home-automation functionality was nowhere to be seen at launch and, as is apparent from the many frustrated comments on…

Today, customers demand more than ever, and their impression of the experience you provide is directly related to the speed and reliability of your data connectivity.
  • Data Is Your Most Precious Resource

    Chris Doran
    25 Mar 2015 | 8:43 am
    Data is the new oil While some organizations turn to pre-made data sets, others are unlocking their data through better data preparation practices. You’ve heard it said before—data is the new oil. It’s very valuable, but just like crude, raw data is mostly unusable until it is refined. Be that as it may, the value of oil keeps dropping while the value of data keeps going up and up. You can no longer ignore the importance of data to business. Before their closure, Gigaom addressed the growing data gap—while large organizations may have the resources to gather and prepare their own…

    We live in a connected culture. Whereas a mere decade ago, we were on a slower Internet (for the most part), strides in technology have enabled us to be more productive in our online communications. Email is still a pretty ubiquitous method of chatting with people around the world whether for business or pleasure, and new collaboration tools such as Slack and HipChat create always-on virtual meeting experiences. Video chat speaks to our accountability for our presence by a computer, and facilitates global meetings, enabling a seamless culture wherever one is. Our cellular devices are…

    As many of you know, I’m working with influencer marketing platform, The Shelf. The article below is not mine but is probably one of the best guest posts I’ve ever received here. It was originally posted on The Shelf’s blog (which by the way, is amazing), but I wanted to amplify its lessons because this post is oh-so-great. This article is authored by Lauren Jung, co-founder of The Shelf. Every PR or marketing person who is focused on journalists or bloggers should read this. Without further ado, this is a great story: Working with bloggers can be a somewhat daunting task if…
  • Does Social Media Impact Sales at Tobacco and Adult Themed Stores?

    Tamar Weinberg
    11 Feb 2015 | 6:46 am
    What is the value of social media as it relates to retail ROI? Is there a point in putting sharing buttons on my e-commerce website if I don’t know how that translates to actionable data regarding revenue? Everyone is doing things with respect to social, but in e-commerce, what is the point? Can I even truly attribute social data to return on investment? These are good and absolutely fair questions. AddShoppers** is one of the coolest technologies I have ever seen for the e-commerce space and is the only offering I have encountered that has such a breadth of data on social ROI in online…

    I don’t know about you, but if someone tells me my process is tedious and expensive, I may be receptive to hear what they are saying in the hopes that they can help me improve my life, either personally or professionally. Seven years ago, I didn’t believe inbox zero was ever possible. Today, I sell training modules on my inbox zero process. Public relations, especially in the age of blogging, has been quite a nightmare, to the point that in 2009, I called most PR pros public relations spammers. Many have blatant disregard for what people write about, and will use a distant mention…
  • Why Customer Service is the Future of Social Marketing

    Tamar Weinberg
    28 Oct 2014 | 5:30 am
    In 2006, social media was building steam in the United States. With the rise of Facebook’s popularity, the launch of Twitter, and the surge of influence from social news sites like Digg, social media looked to be a great breeding ground for marketers to make their mark. And make their marks they did. Digg was an incredibly powerful platform to drive traffic and pageviews to reasonably good content. Initially, the network really had the cream of the Internet crop on its frontpage, and the “Digg effect” would take websites down just like that. Visitors flocked to the homepage…

    Many think of a website redesign as a daunting, time-consuming, and expensive task.  However, it doesn’t have to be any of those things. Updating your business’s website can have many benefits: it can improve the experience of your users and better serve their needs, make your site more up-to-date or visually appealing, improve the display or surfacing of content, include a new product or business strategy, display a new company brand or message, and become better optimized so it ranks higher on search engines, therefore, allowing prospects to easily find you, which often helps to…

    As revolutions go, the rise of mobile gaming has been a quiet one. In just a few short years the mobile gaming sphere went from being a tiny slice of the worldwide gaming market to a fairly substantial piece of the pie. Today, it’s poised to overtake the console industry in the worldwide market and to become gaming’s largest segment by the end of 2015. It’s no surprise that some are wondering how mobile came to dominate the 90 billion dollar gaming industry – particularly when “gamer” is still an epithet that conjures up images of a relatively limited…

    Derek Strickland
    1 Apr 2015 | 8:03 pm
    2015 is shaping up to be a pretty substantial year for console gaming, with each of the three leading consoles–Wii U, Xbox One and PlayStation 4–receiving a nice variety of titles. While most games on the list are cross-platform, there are a few timed exclusives as well as console exclusives to boot, and we weigh which games look to be solid hits that gamers are anticipating. Since the gaming industry is in a sort of creative standstill as far as original content goes, most of the hotly anticipated games are sequels and continuations of popular franchises.

The two aircraft transmitted a 7700 “squawk” code which is recognized by the International Civil Aviation Organization as meaning general emergency. The two aircraft landed safely at Tainan Air Force Base shortly after 1:00 pm. An American diplomatic official is quoted by local media as saying the two aircraft were on a “routine” flight when they encountered a mechanical emergency and required to land.

I did my usual downloads from my TiVo DVR the night before so that I would have some shows to watch and of course I have my MacBook Pro so that I can get some writing done. The last thing I expected on this Delta flight was to have WiFi internet all the way home!

  • Netflix vs. Hulu Plus: If you could only have one?

    Terry White
    18 Mar 2015 | 1:04 pm
    I’ve been a Netflix subscriber for years and I have also tried a trial subscription to Hulu Plus. The thing that turned me off of Hulu (and still does) is that you pay the monthly fee ($7.99) and yet they still play ads. Also not to mention that during my trial period all the ads were bought out by the presidential candidates of 2012. I just couldn’t take any more. Three years later I’m willing to try Hulu Plus again, but is it worth it? I’d gladly pay more per month to eliminate the ads. Many of you have Hulu, Netflix or both. Tell me why? What if you could only have…

In most cases there isn’t a whole lot that’s new, but companies do sometimes find a way to improve on an already crowded product category. The Simplicam + Closeli is a standard WiFi connected webcam with a nicer design than most. It has a well thought out base/stand as well as things like a 10 foot “flat” USB cable so that you can more easily hide it in your home. This camera can be monitored from…

However, as they started to reveal the specs I quickly began to realize that this wasn’t going to be a product for me. I also had to remind some of my friends that not every product created is for every user. This is why Apple now has three different products in their notebook lineup (MacBook, MacBook Air and MacBook Pro). I’m mostly a pro user and this is NOT a pro machine. Could it be…

The pop star shared the haircut photo early in the day with the caption “I asked for the Kris Jenner”, which immediately grabbed the attention of the web and quickly went viral. But Perry, who changes her hair color and style pretty often, may have just been pulling a fast one on her followers. We’re not so sure about the photo she posted later, which showed her…

    Wolfgang Van Halen is a chip off the old block. While his fan base may not be as big as his famous dad’s, every diehard VH fan knows Wolfgang Van Halen birthdate, even if they don’t know Eddie’s. How did that come to be? Back in 1991, when Wolfgang William Van Halen was born, his dad wrote a song for him. It was an instrumental acoustic guitar piece that later ended up on Van Halen’s 1991 album For Unlawful Carnal Knowledge. It was called “316.” Wolfgang Van Halen’s birthday is March 16. Van Halen fans have kind of watched Wolfgang Van Halen grow up.

  • Water Cannon Salute Goes Horribly Wrong on a Virgin Atlantic Flight

    Arpit Verma
    31 Mar 2015 | 10:27 pm
    It is a bit of a tradition to give a water cannon salute to a newly acquired aircraft when it is departing for a destination for the first time. It has been done several times over the past years where the aircraft basically is sprayed with jets of water by fire trucks on its two sides forming an arc around them as a gesture of best wishes. It was a rather uneventful morning at the Manchester airport when the inaugural Airbus 330 flight from Manchester to Atalanta was set to take off. The events took a rapid turn when the aircraft was given a foam cannon salute rather than a water cannon…

    30 Mar 2015 | 9:59 pm
    Possibly our most favorite Android phone, in terms of at least the build quality, aesthetics and feel, HTC One M7 is set to receive the Android 5.0 Lollipop update in India. Some of the users are already reporting the update is being received as an OTA, while the others are still in line, given the batch rollout. It has already been confirmed by HTC, that the HTC M7 is at the end of its life cycle with the Lollipop update set to be the last for the device. It is not too bad for a phone that is now two generations old, though when you see the iPhone 4s still received the iOS 8.1 update, you do…

    Samsung has earned the unwanted reputation of producing flagship smartphones with not so impressive build quality. Owners of its flagship smartphones are often deprived of the premium experience that a flagship device is supposed to deliver. There has been a lot of complains by its fans and others alike, regarding its below par build quality. This outcry ultimately prompted the company to release the Alpha series, which come with metal chassis, giving the devices a premium look.

The firm plans on disrupting Meizu and its M1 Note’s success by pricing it slightly lower than the latter’s smartphone, while stuffing it with almost the exact same hardware specifications. Currently, M1 Note is retailing for $160 and between Lenovo’s K3, there are more than just a few similarities.

  • How to Root Samsung Galaxy S6 & S6 Edge with CF-Auto-Root

    31 Mar 2015 | 9:29 am
    Samsung’s flagship duo ‘The GALAXY S6′ and ‘S6 edge’ were unveiled a while back at MWC 2015 and are now available for pre-order in India. Those of you who have pre-booked S6 might want to root it once you get your hands on the device. Fortunately, Chainfire a senior developer over at XDA Developers forum has already managed to root the international SM-G920F variant of SGS6 and some other models as well. The method uses Chainfire’s popular CF-Auto-Root and ODIN tool, which is perhaps the easiest way to gain root access without flashing a custom recovery.

  • How to Move Apps & Games to SD card on Redmi 1S

    27 Mar 2015 | 5:19 am
    Xiaomi Redmi 1S was an amazing entry-level phone (discontinued now), and its successor ‘Redmi 2‘ has been recently launched in India. Out of 8GB, around 6GB of free space is available for the users on Redmi 1S which is pretty decent. But once you install 2-3 high-end games on your device, the internal storage can easily run out and unfortunately there is no option to move apps to SD card neither on Redmi 1S nor Redmi 2. Moreover, there is no way to install apps directly on SD card in Redmi 1S. Luckily, a not so complex workaround is available that helps you move the compatible…

    Xiaomi is on a roll when it comes to 4G phones in India, becoming the # 1 in terms of shipments of 4G smartphones in India trouncing Samsung and Apple – this is no small accomplishment especially after all the controversies they got into in India. All of this is in less than a year they’ve come to India starting off with the Mi 3 which was a huge hit. They are also the number five in the Indian smartphone market in Q4 of 2014 with about 4 percent market share. Coming off a not so successful sales period of the Mi 4, Xiaomi looks to be back in the game of sales numbers now with…

Who would’ve thought a tiny entry-level phone packing decent specs that can get you thru the day with telephony, housing the elusive vanilla Android OS would come at that price! And within a year of its release, Motorola wants to leverage on the success – in the form of Moto E (2nd Generation). Does it churn the game at the entry level…

       by Jean-Louis Gassée Taking a closer look at the size and precision of Apple’s manufacturing operations has made me rethink my skepticism about the putative Apple Car. I’ve been in Paris for the last two weeks, mostly disconnected. I won’t wallow in specifics; suffice it to say that the struggle with cable TV, Internet, and cellular providers here is eerily similar to what we commonly endure in the Valley. There is one difference, however: A few hours ago, I watched as a cable technician spliced a fiber connection into our apartment, something I can’t get in downtown Palo…

For a start, should Airbnb develop a publishing arm, this unparalleled notoriety would spare it tens of millions dollars otherwise required to promote its content services: In the…

Under Steve Jobs‘ leadership, Apple 2.0 obsessed over the marriage of form and function. Starting with Jony Ive’s Bondi Blue iMac, Apple products stood out in a sea of beige and black boxes. But even so, fashion, the providential spawn of this fecund marriage, has always been a by-product — welcome, but not a first-order pursuit With the AppleWatch things have changed: Fashion is now a primary component,…

    It is actually possible to use Pinterest for useful tasks, though it may not seem so at first glance. Here’s how. When it comes to discussions about using social media websites as tools to help your communication, business, or day-to-day life, Pinterest is often overlooked. Pinterest is typically characterized as a website for wasting time or ambitious do-it-yourself projects, and anyone who attempts to speak to its defence generally does so based on a vague definition of its usefulness for “inspiration” (whether it be for crafts, style, or finally getting in shape).

You can’t see an ambigram design and not think of it as “cool” or “awesome.” Because it is. When you can read word/s the same way upside down, or in any orientation or POV, it’s remarkable.

No, of course not. You would get directions. You would determine how to get from point A to point B before stepping on the gas. You would factor things in like driving time and alternate routes, maybe even the weather. The same concept can (and should) be applied to your marketing efforts. Creating a Targeted Plan When deciding on how to market your business, you need to know your end goal. You…

  • Take AIM: How to Target the Right Audience

    2 Mar 2015 | 12:04 am
    “Anyone with an internet connection and an idea can develop an audience.” These words were spoken by actor Kevin Spacey at last year’s Content Marketing World to 2,600 marketing professionals and, to put it simply, he’s right. But marketing isn’t just about building an audience, it’s about building the right audience. A lot of time and money is wasted when trying to sell a service or product to the wrong individual. Instead, you need to create a strategic marketing plan to delves into who your target audience is and how you can reach it. Let’s break down how you can target the…

    27 Feb 2015 | 10:02 am
    Offering managed IT services or implementing VOIP may not seem like the most thrilling service offerings. And some people go so far as thinking these offerings are downright boring (gasp!). Never forget, though, that your services are very much needed. And just because IT stereotypically may not be the sexiest industry, there are plenty of ways to step up your game when it comes to showing off your brand. The first impression people have of your business is often your website. So, it’s time to make it more fab than drab. Here are four small ways you can add big personality to your IT site:…

Each day we’re constantly bombarded with information and if you’re anything like me, my attention span seems to be thinning day by day. We’ve all sat through someone’s presentation slide after slide trying our best to ignore the text message that just popped up or the Facebook notification that just came in on our iPhone. So, if you’re looking to put together an exciting presentation that will actually keep your audience’s attention, your first thought might not want to…

    Programming languages shape the way their users think—which helps explain how tech startups work and why they are able to reinvent themselves.When the Japanese computer scientist Yukihiro Matsumoto decided to create Ruby, a programming language that has helped build Twitter, Hulu, and much of the modern Web, he was chasing an idea from a 1966 science fiction novel called Babel-17 by Samuel R.

    The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA) was implemented to enable easier and more effective healthcare access to millions of Americans. Presently, the health insurance marketplace is witnessing significant changes as this domain has become increasingly consumer driven with important variations in the way care is paid for and delivered. A new report released by the "American Hospital Association" reveals that as the increase in cost of providing health insurance continues, employers are pushing more of the cost of care onto their employees. They are selecting low cost…
  • High Risk of Cardiovascular Disease in Women with Migraine

    Cardiovascular disease (CVD) is the number one killer of both men and women in the United States. About 600,000 people die due to heart disease every year, that is, 1 in every 4 deaths. A new research shows that women who suffer from migraine are 1.52 times more likely to suffer from a cardiovascular disease than women without this symptom. They also have more chances to have a stroke, heart attack or die of any other cardiology diseases. The study results were presented at the American Headache Society’s (AHS) 56th Annual scientific meeting. The results of the study specify that there…

    As the New Year is fast approaching, it is very important to clean up your account receivables (A/R) to improve your medical billing and coding process and increase year-end collections. This will also help you refresh the records for the coming year, keep the records ready for the tax season and ensure that your cash flow stays manageable. A thorough A/R analysis is vital to make a decision regarding whether to continue to chase older claims or make necessary adjustments and move on. Errors in claims can also be resolved through this analysis. If you prefer to have some support in this…
  • Role of Critical Care Units in Managing Patient Care

    Meghann Kiernan
    25 Mar 2015 | 2:56 am
    Generally, critical care refers to the direct delivery of medical care for a seriously ill or injured patient. An illness or injury to be considered critical must seriously impair one or more vital organs of the patient so that their survival rate is put at risk. This requires detailed interpretation of multiple data sources along with the application of advanced technology to manage the patient. Therefore, critical medical support requires frequent personal assessment and manipulation by a trained practitioner. As per 2012 statistics, there are approximately 6000 ICUs in the United States,…

    22 Mar 2015 | 11:53 pm
    Colorectal Cancer (CRC) is recognized as the third most commonly diagnosed malignant neoplasm worldwide and the third leading cause of cancer death in both men and women in the United States. It is estimated that there will be 135,000 new cases of CRC and nearly 50,000 deaths due to this disease in the United States in 2015. Generally, colorectal cancer develops in the colon or the rectum. Reports suggest that the lifetime risk of developing this condition is about 1 in 20 (5%) and this is somewhat higher in men than women. The potential risk factors associated with this disease include…

    Microsoft just unveiled the latest version of its baseline Surface tablet, the Surface 3 — switching to an Intel Atom processor, and leaving behind the ARM-based processors that powered the first two versions. The change means that the new tablet runs a full version of Windows 8.1 and traditional Windows apps, not the Windows RT operating system, which was limited to Modern UI apps. The Surface 3, starting at $499, comes with a 10.8 inch screen, slightly smaller than the 12-inch Surface Pro 3 introduced by Microsoft last year. It comes in 64 GB and 128 GB models, and 4G LTE...

  • Three common reasons why ITAM implementations fail

    Peter Beruk
    1 Apr 2015 | 8:51 am
    Too often, we hear of stories where an organization embarked on implementing an ITAM program – only to hear later that the project was cancelled or postponed.  The reasons for these cancellations and postponements almost always come down to one of three reasons, explained below. I cite the three most common reasons and ways to rescue the effort so that the ITAM implementing organization gets the benefits it was initially seeking (and ideally more).  The benefits include reduced risk of non-compliance and audit, and improved financial and business impacts to the organization. And the…

  • OS Deployment Made Easy: Serve Yourself!

    Background Any organization that goes through the process of developing and deploying a new operating system knows a simple truth: coordinating with the end users around scheduling the OS deployment is one of the most challenging tasks in the entire project plan. There never seems to be a “good” time to actually fire off the deployment you spent so much time and effort to get “just right”.  There are of course a boatload of reasons why this is true, but fundamentally it comes down to people. For every computer you need to upgrade, there is a human being on the other side of the…

    Duane Gardiner

    When planning a System Center ConfigMgr Manager and Nomad implementation or when integrating Nomad into an existing ConfigMgr environment, I’m often asked “How big does the ConfigMgr client cache need to be to accommodate Nomad?” Or, “Do we need to change the ConfigMgr client’s cache size to accommodate Nomad?” The short answer is, “It doesn’t matter.” Now, when I say “It doesn’t matter”, I don’t mean that the size of the ConfigMgr client cache doesn’t matter at all. On the contrary, it’s a critically…

    So – we’ve created a new acronym for Software Asset Management (SAM) in 1E. We’re calling it SAO – Software Asset Optimization. Why yet another acronym? And why “Software Asset Optimization”? Because ITAM and SAM have always, to some degree, frustrated me. It is crucial to manage your IT Assets (which is the stated aim of ITAM and as a subset – SAM). Often ITAM and SAM tools vendors equate “manage” with “count” – that’s just not good enough. 1E is not developing a new suite of tools which merely count installs or licenses – SAO is about active optimization –…

New devices, new software, more network bandwidth, and new opportunities to make all this technology do great things for our professional and private lives.   Or, it becomes a frightening professional and intellectual cyclone which threatens to make our jobs obsolete, or diluted due to business units accessing IT resources via a web page and credit card, bypassing the IT department entirely.

To be fair, the guy grew up in an Internet world, with access to online resources including Facebook, Twitter, and other social applications.

For IT managers a good, simple definition for RISK may be from the Open FAIR model which states: “Risk is defined as the probable frequency and magnitude of future loss”   Risk management should follow a structured process acknowledging…

After all, IT administrators are already overtaxed with supporting desktop, server, application, and infrastructure management requirements. Asking them to layer a whole new management discipline on top of that can be a daunting prospect. IT managers who find themselves in this predicament often recognize it as an opportunity to practice the fine art of procrastination.
  • IT Cultural Transformation and The Elimination of Technology Silos—An Exercise in Efficiency or a Dream Turned Nightmare?

    Dennis Drogseth
    13 Mar 2015 | 11:48 am
    Cultural transformation and eliminating IT silos may sound like an impossible dream—and indeed, perhaps “eliminating” is too strong a word. But the reality is that IT organizations must change toward a more responsive, business-aligned culture, as well as toward a more service-aware (versus siloed) way of working. So how do you begin? A lot depends, [...]
  • Developing an Information Management Strategy Within the EMA Hybrid Data Ecosystem

    John Myers
    13 Mar 2015 | 8:24 am
    Enterprise Management Associates (EMA) has recognized that big data implementers and consumers rely on a variety of platforms to meet their big data requirements. These platforms include new data management technologies such as Hadoop, MongoDB, and Cassandra, but the collection also includes traditional SQL-based data management technologies supporting data warehouses and data marts; operational support systems such as customer relationship management (CRM) and enterprise resource planning (ERP); and cloud-based platforms. EMA refers to this collection of platforms as the Hybrid Data…
  • SolidFire Analyst Day Observations

    Jim Miller
    5 Mar 2015 | 2:36 pm
    I had the opportunity to attend the SolidFire analyst day in my hometown of Boulder, Colorado on February 25. It was a well-attended event, with the day split into SolidFire and customer presentations in the morning, and small, intimate conversational sessions with SolidFire executives and customers in the afternoon. SolidFire is one of a growing number of all-flash vendors, and they have added enterprise customers to their historical target market of service providers. The move to add enterprise customers was a good one, with 50% of Q4 bookings coming from enterprise customers. The initial…
  • Leveraging User Activity Monitoring to Protect Information and Employees from Cyber Threats

    David Monahan
    4 Mar 2015 | 1:46 pm
    Historically, many organizations and personnel have been concerned about user activity monitoring (UAM). Certain business cultures feel that these activities are an invasion of privacy or are distrustful. However, in today’s Internet connected, data driven world, having specific information or data means the difference in being a market leader and being out of business. Identifying threats to employees and organizational information is key to maintaining confidentiality, integrity and availability. Maintaining the confidentiality, integrity and availability of information is paramount for…

  • Gamification takes motivation to the next level [Video]

    Peter Horsten
    27 Mar 2015 | 3:17 am
    Digital engagement is yesterday’s news. To be successful, you need to get beyond engagement. You need to motivate people to take action – and that’s the promise of gamification. By understanding the essential elements of gamification, you can unleash its power to truly motivate the masses. How does gamification engage and motivate people? What’s different about a digital engagement model? Brian Burke discussed it all during the diner keynote at the CIO Dinershow.

  • The most misunderstood design pattern – Object Pool

    Michał Warkocz
    24 Mar 2015 | 7:22 am
    Have you ever heard about Object Pooling? If you are a software developer then probably you have. It is usually described as a design pattern that allows you to decrease memory allocations. Is this all Object Pooling is? Well, not even close. The basics To talk about properties of the Object Pool pattern let’s first take a look at what it actually is in code. Based on the MSDN generic the Object Pool implementation for a multithreaded application may look as follows: public class ObjectPool { private readonly ConcurrentBag _items = new ConcurrentBag(); private readonly Func _generator;…

  • Agile contracting: challenge accepted!

    Peter Horsten
    30 Jan 2015 | 11:43 am
    Agile development based on a contract that has been accepted by lawyers seems impossible. The nature of traditional purchasing and contracting processes does not match the Agile principles. When a project is small you can manage to find a workaround, but for a huge, high risk project the situation is different. The client wants to know what he gets for his money, while in fact he cannot really specify his needs in sufficient detail. Having adopted Agile working principles years ago, at a certain moment we had to face this challenge. And it just appeared to be like Nelson Mandela once said:…
  • DreamFactory — let there be (mobile) API for everyone!

    Daniel Dekanski
    4 Dec 0001 | 4:00 pm
    Since the advent of Web 2.0, social interaction is king. Now, almost every single mobile app works in the environment of its users exchanging ideas through content authoring, comments, likes and shares. Even the simplest and most “personal” of them, like personal planners, address books and to-do lists, enable users to put their data in the cloud, share them with others and access them using a myriad of devices and interfaces. The bottom line is that every one of them needs a back-end and an API to talk to. All projects are executed through tight cooperation between back-end…

  • How to fix Outlook 2016 for Mac crashes and doesn’t send e-mail

    Peter Horsten
    7 Mar 2015 | 4:55 am
    This week’s announcement that a preview of the new Office 2016 for Mac is now officially available was a little surprise to me. I knew it was coming, but didn’t expect it to be available already. Ok, it is “just” a preview and may be you shouldn’t use it for your business, but on the other hand why not give it a try. Recent previews of Microsoft solutions are rather stable. So, I tried, but the installation included some unpleasant surprises. 1. Hard to download Office 2011 for Mac used to be a lot better than the version for the Windows users several years ago.

  • Is it time to open your own online store?

    Peter Horsten
    31 Oct 2014 | 12:03 pm
    You might have started selling online through a market place like Amazon, Etsy, eBay, Cqout or your local favorite like DaWanda in Germany, Marktplaats in The Netherlands or Allegro in Poland. Hopefully, your business is growing and if things go well you will soon need your own platform. Increasingly you will face the relatively high costs of the platform you use, but more important is the fact it doesn’t allow you to grow and stand out from the crowd. It might be high time to have your own branded store to really engage with your customers. So, how do you know when it’s time to take…

  • Top 10 Books to Un-Borg

    I have been thinking of doing this for a long time. Actually I plan to extend it to 100 books that I think are a good foundation for anyone to read in order to have a more rounded, more able, and most of all a more independent way of thinking than just unconsciously going along with the greater reactive biomass that is carefully being shaped by TV and other mass media, including this here Internet. Just to be clear then, my criteria for whether a book makes it into my top 100 is primarily based on the practical, real effect it has on you awakening from the dreary, matrix-like slumber induced…

    It is easy to understand why some traditional stores, those little shops around the corner, shirk and dodge the eventuality of turning digital. The digital world is pretty huge but then again, it is an eventuality and even small businesses and brands cannot and should not try to escape it. A survey by the Webs Small Business Digital Trends revealed that 63% of small business owners are using digital strategies in their overall marketing efforts. Eighty percent of these business owners serve as their own webmasters with Facebook as their primary advertising platform. Their reason for going…
  • Why Hybrid IT Services Might Be Just What Your Small Business Needs

    Alex Espenson

    When running your small business, you probably hear all the time about moving over to big data and shifting everything over to the cloud as it is easier for you to run and operate. Now, it might be true that just dumping everything you have over to the cloud is easy, but there are are right and wrong ways to approach business process management (BPM). Instead, you need to look at a hybrid IT service. There are many benefits associated with spreading your data around and not having everyone in one place.

The suit was filed in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia. The lawsuit comes after the FCC passed a law to prevent network owners, such as Comcast (CMCSA) and Time Warner Cable (TWC), from discriminating against certain content being sent over its networks. The rules will not take effect for 60 days until after they are published to the Federal Register, if they are not delayed in court.

    In most mature categories, there’s a common pattern: there are pretty clear Tier 1 and Tier 2 companies, and there are worrisome smaller players. Worrisome because they have an edge – the benefit of not being all things to all people – or because they do something that the top players just can’t seem to get done. These are the grounds for the archetypal battle for growth in American commerce. If you are Tier 1, the battle plan is finding new markets and fending off number 2. If you are Tier 2, the battle plan is being a challenger brand and fending off the nips at your heels without…

    Paul Crowe
    16 Mar 2015 | 8:11 am
    In my last article, I shared some R&D conducted by Ipsos on how consumers consume concepts. The results indicated that consumers typically do not consume traditional concepts in a linear fashion: they almost always start with the image and then the headline, moving to the insight and then price (typically at the bottom of the concept) and then moving on to the body of the concept. This result was striking, but also not very surprising. After all, as an industry we typically expose consumers to the entire concept all at once – essentially letting them consume the concept in any order…

As such, many marketers are building their own innovation villages in the form of online communities to help them through the process of nurturing their innovation from infancy to the marketplace.

    Apple Pay is a revolutionary payment system. I have used it a couple of times since it has launched and just love the way it has been implemented. It works just as it was shown in the keynote. You basically bring your iPhone close to the payment terminal which is waiting for payment and your cards stored in the passbook will automagically appear on your screen. If you have your finger already on the Touch ID, it would just go ahead and authorize the payment with your default card. The little chime and a subtle vibration in addition to the short animation on the screen let you know that the…

    Calling a business has never been fun. Between waiting for someone to pick up, wondering if you’ll be stuck on hold, dealing with automated menus, and finally getting a live person only to find out they can’t answer your question, what should be a two minute proposition often takes more like 20. And in the age of text messaging, even two minutes isn’t short. Hold music may be a thing of the past, however. Google appears to be working on taking the phone call out of contacting your local business, or at least giving you the option to use an online chat function instead.

    2 Mar 2015 | 8:41 am

The answer is no, according to a decision last week by a US District Court judge. Or rather—to be more accurate–the judge decided there’s no proof the search engine’s practices have caused harm. What’s in a MADA? The case started with Google’s MADA, or Mobile Application Distribution Agreement. This is the set of terms and conditions it requires of hardware manufacturers making devices that use the Android operating system.

For those who don’t know, AMD and Nvidia have their own technology that is a significant 1up from the existing V-Sync feature.

I’ve been enjoying Lollipop so much this latest update would only make it better. So far. While I still check my phone to see if the 5.1 is already available via OTA, the urge to sideload it has been getting stronger and stronger.

    UBM marketers started a list of things to avoid when exhibiting at a show after a series of discussions with sales representatives. Often, the marketing managers will book the show and exhibitor space, and the sales team will man the booth onsite. The sales team, however, may not necessarily know how to work a booth, and often you’ll see staff on their laptop or phones, or having a chat with colleagues, and miss the attendees coming to see them. The sales team then sends feedback to their marketing manager that the show wasn’t any good. Or worse, marketers will…
  • Best Practices Executive Brief: Video

    Winnie Ng Schuchman
    23 Mar 2015 | 11:38 am
    If seeing is believing, then video is an obvious must-have for any content marketing strategy. Videos give a voice to your executives, reinforce the humanity behind your brand, and bring your solutions to life in a way that words on a page (or screen) can’t quite match. That’s why 76% of those surveyed by the Content Marketing Institute and Marketing Profs use video as part of their content marketing strategy. In fact, B2B marketers consider video the third most effective of the many tactics they use. But with everyone from the teen around the corner to the marketer in the next building…
  • How Brand Monitoring Informs the C-Suite

    Beyond PR
    17 Mar 2015 | 2:06 pm
    The growth of online and offline communication channels has placed companies under a public microscope, and as a result consumers are more fickle about the brands they choose to support. Media fragmentation and information overload has made it much more difficult for communicators to single-handedly keep track of all the information that is publicly available about their brands. Investing in the right tools to monitor a brand’s performance not only prepares that company in advance of a crisis, but can also identify new opportunities for growth. “Now, more than ever, you have the ability…

    It is actually possible to use Pinterest for useful tasks, though it may not seem so at first glance. Here’s how. When it comes to discussions about using social media websites as tools to help your communication, business, or day-to-day life, Pinterest is often overlooked. Pinterest is typically characterized as a website for wasting time or ambitious do-it-yourself projects, and anyone who attempts to speak to its defence generally does so based on a vague definition of its usefulness for “inspiration” (whether it be for crafts, style, or finally getting in shape).

  • Change or Spoof a MAC Address in Windows or OS X

    Aseem Kishore
    1 Apr 2015 | 11:24 pm
    Every NIC (Network Interface Card) has a unique MAC address (Media Access Control). This applies to all types of network cards, including Ethernet cards and WiFi cards. The MAC Address is a six-byte number or 12-digit hexadecimal number that is used to uniquely identify a host on a network. An example of a MAC address is 1F-2E-3D-4C-5B-6A and it falls into the Layer 2 networking protocol of the OSI model. In today’s networks, ARP, or Address Resolution Protocol converts a MAC address to a Layer 3 protocol address, such as an IP address. A MAC address can also be called a Physical Address.

    Do you use the command prompt on a daily basis? If so, I recently found a way to turn on auto-complete for the command prompt via a simple registry edit. When typing in long path names, simply type in the first few letters and then press TAB to autocomplete either folder or file names. For example, if I am typing in C:\Documents and Settings\, I would just need to type in C:\Doc and then press the TAB key. As you can see, there is only one folder that starts with “doc“, so it automatically gets completed with quotes added. Now that’s pretty neat. If you want to continue…
  • How to Uninstall and Reinstall Windows Updates

    31 Mar 2015 | 4:09 am
    Even though installing updates in Windows is an easy process, the mechanism in the background that manages it all is fairly complicated. There is also a lot of misinformation on the Internet about how to deal with problems relating to Windows Update. One of the biggest misconceptions is that all Windows updates can be installed at once by simply deleting the SoftwareDistribution folder stored in C:\Windows. This is completely wrong.

Later, thinking to post a quickie to Google+, I pulled up the URL from synced History on Chromebook Pixel LS. On the N9, I had clicked the post's last link, which did nothing special but…

  • iPhone 6 Graphics Easily Best Samsung Galaxy S6

    1 Apr 2015 | 8:44 pm
    The Galaxy S6, which is expected to arrive on or before April 10, has gotten good reviews. However, while Samsung’s Exynos 7 chip bests Apple’s A8 SoC, on paper, its real world performance might not be so good.Given how badly the Galaxy S5 performed in the market, and rightly so, Samsung really needed to up its game this time around. Like Apple, they’ve come out with two models, Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge (curved display edges) though only one size. On paper, at least, the Exynos 7 inside the Samsung phones offer performance that easily bests the iPhone 6.Smart people are…
  • Apple vs Intel: ARM Macs an ‘Imperative’

    31 Mar 2015 | 9:33 am
    Depending on who’s doing the counting, Apple is the fourth largest chipmaker. Moreover, last Fall’s iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus have driven demand for Cupertino’s System on Chip (SoC) silicon solutions. Moreover, according to at least one voice, Apple must start building ARM Macs in order to keep the good times rolling.Seeking Alpha’s Mark Hibben has written a lengthy article about Apple rapidly growing and, quite frankly, revolutionary in-house business. Therein he reached a number of conclusions: • Apple’s iOS devices (iPad, iPhone, iPod) all use…

  • We Wish Motorola Handcrafted Leather Selfie Stick is a Real Thing

    mike chua
    1 Apr 2015 | 10:18 pm
    Can taking selfie ever be classy? Apparently so, if you have the Motorola Selfie Stick. This purported accessory is not just any selfie stick; it is of real wood, handcrafted by master craftsman in their respective field, namely wood working and leather, and the result is an uber chic piece of accessory that, after watching the product video, you know you will never get your hands on one, ever. Unfortunate, it is. As a consolation, however pretty or elegant this wood and leather selfie stick is, it is not retractable like any selfie stick should, which means, it will be pain to carry around.
  • Dyson Wants to Rid the Air of Airborne Bacteria with Air Purifying Bladeless Fan

    mike chua
    1 Apr 2015 | 3:00 pm
    Instead of coming out with a separate standalone appliance, Dyson is kind of obsessed with making their appliances do double duty. It has a fan that spits out hot and cold air, humidifier that kills bacteria, then a faucet that blow dries your hands and now, it has a fan, a bladeless one to be specific, that purifies the air too. We are not complaining though. If there is an appliance that does more than one task, then we all up for it since it can save us one outlet and rid the room of one appliance. Agree? The problem is with the price, but we will get to that later. Taking its multiplier…

Nope we can’t, but our opinions will not affect China handset maker, OnePlus, from embarking on a prank that says they do and even setup an elaborate web page, detailing the remote control toy “features” and capability, you know, to be more convincing. The quadcopter in question is called DR-1. It was meant to be an April Fools’ Day joke and the aircraft supposedly culminates advanced drone technology, including “advanced 6-axis gyroscopic stabilization system”, QuickCharge technology and more.

  • Google’s 2nd-Gen Chromebook Pixel Boasts Intel Broadwell Processors and USB Type-C Ports

    31 Mar 2015 | 11:35 pm
    Chromebooks have the reputation of being affordable mobile computing devices, but when the Chromebook Pixel was introduced two years, it was not quite the case. In fact, it was the opposite, costing 3-4 times more over the regular models and not being able to do much more than a regular Chromebook doesn’t quite help to justify its price tag. It was priced at $1,300, which you could easily snag a decent-spec’ed Windows portable. But that doesn’t stop Google from making the offer and while we think it is pricey for a machine that mostly required to be connected to be usable, we were all…

  • Dangerous glass fibers in cigarettes worsen lung damage for smokers

    19 Jan 2015 | 7:58 pm
    Shocking new research reveals that a specific type of lung cancer many smokers develop comes from tiny tears in their lung tissue caused by microscopic glass fibers, also known as glass wool, found in many conventional cigarette filters. These rips in the epithelial (soft) tissue fuel the development of tumors and cancerous cells due to the constant overload of toxins, namely pesticides, nicotine and ammonia, contained in commercial cigarette smoke. The filters of typical commercial cigarettes contain microscopic, needle-shaped shards of glass wool (like fiberglass insulation) which escape…

    High Tech in the Hub

  • But What About the Hole?

    Joe Kinsella
    29 Mar 2015 | 9:50 am
    I've been reading Brent Schlender's Becoming Steve Jobs this weekend, which is being promoted as the "real story" of the Apple CEO. There is no doubt Walter Isaacson didn't make too many Apple friends with his Steve Jobs biography, which portrayed Jobs as a sort of brilliant but high functioning sociopath. I'll post a review when I'm done but felt the need to pass on this anecdote. The spring after the 1996 acquisition of NeXT, Larry Ellison saw the then Apple CEO, Gil Amelio, at a party and introduced him to Gina Smith, a technology journalist. By this time Steve Jobs had concluded Amelio…

    Every day across the tech industry, teams gather for daily stand-up meetings. While the structure varies by organization, the intent is the same: to provide status and identify blocking issues. While I have attended many stand-ups over the years, I have an odd footnote in my personal history: I was at the very first stand-up. The location was 25 Corporate Drive in Burlington, Massachusetts (current headquarters of Acquia), and the year was 1992 or 1993. I was a fresh-faced college graduate who had recently transferred to a small software team in Easel Corporation to join two talented…
  • Using Trello for Hiring

    Joe Kinsella

    Early in CloudHealth I used Trello as a quick and easy way to manage my time. Having a visual board gave me a sense of order that helped better manage my Lean validation. As time went on and the company was formed, I found new uses for Trello, such as managing my sprints, roadmap, personal to-do list and even product documentation. As we started ramping our 2015 hiring, our HR manager and I decided to try a new use for Trello: as a hiring board. The model we adopted was simple: cards as candidates and color-coded labels to denote our different sources (e.g. referral, recruiter, internally…
  • MVF: The Importance of Not Over-investing

    Joe Kinsella
    21 Mar 2015 | 10:24 am
    The Lean movement has made everyone aware of the importance of a feedback loop in driving the success of businesses, products and features. By driving tight and iterative Build-Measure-Learn loops, organizations can limit the risk of their investments and not overcommit resources toward initiatives that either fail or do not deliver the required results. I have blogged in the past on the importance of the Minimum Viable Feature (MVF) in my company, but recently noticed we started to drift from our roots in one important aspect: over-investing in trying to build great software behind our MVFs.

    As entrepreneurs of early stage businesses, we all aspire to help our companies navigate the turbulent waters from idea to product market fit. But once you've achieved product market fit, a new and sometimes harder challenge often arises: scaling the business. During the scaling phase, an upside to being an early member of the company is you can play a lot of roles that add value to the organization. The downside is that if you played all these roles, you will either burnout or make yourself an impediment to scale. I've been doing a poor job lately managing my To Do list. As a reminder I…

    The world is going cloud crazy and it’s not difficult to see why. Where enterprise resource planning software is concerned, the old paradigms of immense cost, lengthy deployments and fiendish complexity are giving way to no capital expenditure, greater flexibility and reduced maintenance – and from that, a new competitive landscape is emerging in which […]
  • Targeting customers in emerging markets? Why you need to work harder to earn their attention

    Patrick Palmi
    31 Mar 2015 | 10:00 pm
    There’s a statistic doing the rounds that, thanks to the internet, humans now have shorter attention spans than goldfish. I’m not sure how accurate this is, but it certainly makes sense. We have all become great multi-taskers, but that can make giving one task your full attention difficult. When last did you read the billboards […]

    1 Apr 2015 | 9:04 pm
    TRON: Legacy was maybe not the best film ever, but ever since it’s 2010 release, it’s spawned an entire genre of TRON-esque design — i.e. dark, glossy objects with light-up highlights. And nothing is more synonymous with TRONIism than the electric motorcycle from the film — which you can now have a chance to own. Read more...

  • What is VoIP?

    Simon Jones
    20 Mar 2015 | 9:39 am
    Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP), is a collection of technologies that allow people to communicate (voice, fax, SMS, voice-messaging) over the internet rather than through the dedicated public switched telephone network (PSTN), and is the direction in which all communication is travelling. The phoneline and phones in many people’s homes and businesses continue to use the similar technologies to those available a century ago, with analogue audio sent along a copper wire and only digitised about the phone company’s digital concentrator at the end of the road. However, we live in…

    16 Mar 2015 | 6:55 am
    More than 100,000 internet users have been fooled by a fake Qantas Facebook page, which claimed to offer free first class flights. The page attracted at least 80,000 likes and over 100,000 shares by claiming to offers travellers the chance to win free flights for a year, before it was taken down by Facebook. The fake page is designed to attract a large number of likes before switching into promoting other dubious products and services for which users had not subscribed. Despite selling pages being against Facebook’s terms and conditions, a page with more than 100,000 likes could attract…

    LG have long been on the coat tails of their Korean neighbours Samsung. The Flex and G3 models have failed to get close to sales of the Samsung Galaxy and the brand has fallen down to fifth in the United States mobile market share. But all that could be about to change… The brand have been showing off a range of devices at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona and are confident that they’ll ruffle a few feathers, particularly with the G4 which is all set to be “radically different” to anything LG have done before. Seeing a major overhaul both in design and user experience, the device…

    For those of you who participated in one of those tournament things, you’ll be amused to hear that the other half’s bracket blew up when Iowa State lost the second game of the first day. Perhaps he should have picked a different game and maybe used a different search engine. I don’t know what the weather is like in your part of the world, but we’ve been dealing with spring for about a month now. That always means lots of new things (and a few recycled old ones). One that caught everyone’s attention was a patent that was granted to Boeing for a force field.

    Chicken Little was right. Twice. Maybe even three times. The other half wants to know when he can get high speed Internet and whether the FCC’s new rules apply or whether he needs to go send a dingo to Congress by jetpack. One of the reasons I don’t use Gmail all that much is because there are a gazillion people who have sent me email and I have no idea who they are or why they wrote to me five years ago. I have to admit that it’s a typical situation – I could have done a little digging and figured it all out – but the people at CNet posted how-to turn off the…

    There are two companies who dominate the online advertising business, right? We all know it’s impossible to keep up with what Facebook does with your information, because every time someone gets a good handle on their privacy settings, they change them. But there’s a pretty straightforward list that helps you navigate what information Google stores about you. Oh, and don’t forget to come up with decent passwords.

We stayed pretty close to home this year, and just enjoyed a day of peace and quiet – something that the Other Half has been asking for for years (though if I hit the lottery in the next couple of months, I might consider this for him.

  • Nata’s Corner: November 2014

    2 Nov 2014 | 9:13 am
    A month or so ago, Apple announced its Apple Pay mobile payments system and there was a lot written about how it was going to change the world with regard to using your phone to pay in stores. Not so fast, though: two major drug store chains have said “No, thanks“. Of course, the competition isn’t having things much better; CurrentC was hacked last week and it’s still in beta-testing. But I think the stories are missing the point. The other day, we were in a grocery store and instead of pulling out his card, the Other Half actually pulled a couple of bills out of his…

    Amazon, always one to push the envelope, took the wraps off of Amazon Dash yesterday. In case you missed it, the latest addition to Amazon's growing product lineup is a series of oval buttons stamped with the logo of a particular household item that tends to need replenishing on a frequent basis. For instance, say you're running low on Tide. Instead of making a mental note to buy more detergent, you can simply press the button on your Tide Amazon Dash widget whereupon it will send a message, via Wi-Fi, to your Amazon mobile shopping app confirming that  an order has been placed.

But, with further discussions it appeared a few recruiters have more of a role than many colleagues in the same business have acknowledged.

There I declared that clicky keyboards were not for me. I was wrong. But I did not know it at the time. A while back, my boss went on a buying bender and purchased a whole bunch of different keyboards, including the DAS and some Microsoft ones. I tried them out too. Neither of us liked any of them, so he returned them all. As a joke, I ordered the CODE keyboard to show that I could buy…

This way I minimize post-processing (and the business format is intentionally boring so I do not need any fancy layouts). But it’s a hassle to have to take my hands off the keyboard to click through the Format / Apply Formatting / Apply Preset menu tree or hit the tiny format preset dropdown ¶a to set the current paragraph style.

    A long long time ago in a galaxy far far away, I wrote a script to import Asana tasks into Omnifocus. If you ran it again, it would update the tasks in OmniFocus. See Merge Asana Projects Into OmniFocus. I recently updated the script to work a smidge better with Asana and Omnifocus 2. The main changes are: Date formats can be changed (for those of us not in the USA) The Non-Project tasks now load Setup First, follow the instructions from the original post to set up Omnifocus and get your API keys.

  • Seeing the Bigger Picture

    Hilton Lipschitz
    31 Jan 2015 | 7:23 am
    It is quite astounding to me that an astonishing amount of work is done and code written without any knowledge, view or understanding of the bigger picture. And yet no-one seems to have taken the time to consider just how remarkably ridiculous this common situation is. How can people be expected to perform at their best and create the best products when they have no clue as to what the big picture or goal is? And yet that seems to be the norm. I started thinking more about this topic yesterday when discussing the work our Quantitative Analysts were doing with them. They were keenly focussed…
  • Eliminating Google Analytics Referral Spam

    18 Jan 2015 | 7:42 am
    It seems that the Google Analytics use of a public tracking code was a mistake. Anyone can use your tracking code on their site, which adds to your traffic, or they can create ghost visits and spam referrals by hammering Google Analytics with your code while never visiting your site. Oh, and the codes are easy to guess, so they do not even need to know about your site. In most cases, this is perfectly harmless (IMHO) as only Google Analytics data is affected and your reports look funny. Your ad stats, if not Google, remain the same as they are independent. The only reason I am talking about…

    The keyboard that comes default with an Android device isn’t the most convenient one to use. It becomes especially more difficult if you have to input passwords that involve numbers, alphabets, and symbols. Long pressing the different keys and switching between the various rows can quickly become a major irritant.  Having a dedicated number row […] The post Change Android Keypad Settings to Display Number Row appeared first on The App Times.

    Nikon has announced the J5, the latest entry in its idiosyncratic 1 series of mirrorless cameras.

  • This is the official music video for Kendrick Lamar's King Kunta

    1 Apr 2015 | 6:13 pm
    Kendrick Lamar's To Pimp a Butterfly has all the markings of a classic, and now it has its first official music video. (Not counting a different version of "i".) "King Kunta," directed by Canadian filmmaker Director X, is a love letter to Lamar's native Compton, CA. Surrounded by friends, Lamar raps through the record's closest thing to a feel-good track in a variety of locations around the city. He dances at the Compton Fashion Center, in a parking lot, and at a convenience store, and the mood is one of total celebration. Continue reading…
  • This is Nintendo's best Amiibo yet

    1 Apr 2015 | 4:16 pm
    Nintendo's Amiibo initiative — which introduces plastic toys into the world of video games — has been very successful so far. But an upcoming figure is so adorable it might give even Link a run for his money. To coincide with the release of Yoshi's Woolly World on the Wii U later this year, Nintendo will be releasing a special Yoshi Amiibo that's actually made of yarn, just like its in-game counterpart. It's painfully cute, and comes with an added benefit: when you scan it into the game, a second Yoshi will appear to assist your playthrough. Yoshi's Woolly World is expected to launch…
  • An Attack on Titan game is coming to the Nintendo 3DS

    1 Apr 2015 | 4:00 pm
    Get ready to fight huge, people-hungry giants on your handheld — a video game adaptation of manga Attack on Titan is headed to the Nintendo 3DS this May. Called Attack on Titan: Humanity in Chains, the new game is headed to both North America and Europe. The third-person action game will feature both a single-player campaign where you fight off towering giants, and a co-op mode for up to four players. And for those with the New Nintendo 3DS XL, it will support the new C-stick for camera control. The game is actually a localized version of an adaptation already available in Japan, subtitled…
  • Mario Kart 8 is getting even faster with new 200cc mode

    Andrew Webster
    1 Apr 2015 | 3:54 pm
    The best Mario Kart will soon be the fastest, as well. Nintendo has announced an upcoming update that adds a new, faster mode to the Wii U racer. Traditionally Mario Kart games offer three classes for racing, 50cc, 100cc, and 150cc. But the new update adds the fastest mode yet with a 200cc mode. It will be available as a free update on April 23rd, and should help make the craziest game in the series — which already includes features like anti-gravity race tracks — even crazier. Good luck on Rainbow Road. Continue reading…

  • MicroApple: Apple and Microsoft announce merger

    1 Apr 2015 | 2:28 am
    Historic rivals, Microsoft and Apple, have announced they are planning to merge later this year. Their first project is to move all employees to a new space-based orb in order to offer services "from the space" rather than "from the cloud" like other common firms with less money. One of the first new services to be offered will be 'Office Death Ray 365' to annihilate your competition no matter what day of the year (except leap years.) It appears the two companies have been planning the merger since at least April 2006 when Steve Jobs announced Apple’s new…
  • Talking Sense: Be sensible when creating apps for kids

    31 Mar 2015 | 8:41 am
    (Image Credit: iStockPhoto/jackscoldsweat) There's a hoax from last year making the rounds on social networks again which targets the 'Talking Angela' game and claims that a paedophile is able to watch and engage with a child from behind the virtual cat character using the device's camera and prompt children into revealing personal details and behave in questionable ways.  Although this was proven to be untrue after an investigation by internet security experts Sophos, there are no technical limitations to prevent this without raising…

A quick look at the FoundationDB community page gives the following update: “Thank you for your support of FoundationDB over the last five years. We’re grateful to have shared our vision of building the best database software and we strongly value your participation in this community.

Someone sitting in their living room in Des Moines, Iowa can be playing against gamers in Canada, England and South Africa. The overwhelming popularity of video games has created an industry valued at more than 90 billion dollars. That’s a lot of money, and it isn’t just the big developers like Electronic Arts or Ubisoft contributing to this number. There are thousands of smaller developers and new designers…

    24 Mar 2015 | 7:30 am
    (Image Credit: iStockPhoto/Bliznetsov) It seems that in the aftermath of almost every major catastrophe comes a reaction from government to increase measures to enhance public security. The atrocities of 9/11 resulted in security measures ranging from increased airport checking procedures, to face recognition devices, from random searches of internet content by intelligence officers, to the use of wiretaps and the ability to intercept and read e-mail. Many of these organisations would choose to cease their services to UK users as opposed to complying Fast forward almost a decade and a half…

  • The rise of the data scientist: How it makes analytics a business driver

    1 Apr 2015 | 3:12 am
    (c) I love technology because of the ways in which it changes society, and one of the first manifestations of that is new jobs: today, I’d like to look at the rise of the data scientist. I’ve previously discussed the ways in which traditional Business Intelligence tools that rely on reactive data warehouses and analysis cubes are being supplanted by nimble, real-time analytics tools that don’t need such complex, expensive tools. Great, real-time business information is becoming available to everyone, but to make the most of it you need a human…
  • Mobile messaging market remains immature but varies by region, according to report

    30 Mar 2015 | 4:58 pm
    (c) The mobile messaging market remains immature for enterprises, but maturity differs by region with the US in front, according to a study from OpenMarket. The research, conducted by IDC in December 2014, surveyed 600 technology decision makers in global 2000 enterprises in the US, UK, and major markets in Europe and Asia.

    (c) 50% of enterprise mobile apps will need to be completely rewritten or replaced in two years. With the odds of success being no better than a coin-toss, it’s imperative that enterprises are taking the right steps to mobilise their business applications. The process is complex, error-laden, and resource-rich.  Having spoken to hundreds of companies and hearing their horror stories, here are the 5 reasons why enterprise mobile apps fail. 1) Building mobile apps like enterprise web apps Enterprise applications work only one way - after logging in, you have to…

    (c) According to data released by distributed denial of service (DDoS) security provider Black Lotus, average packet volume for DDoS attacks increased 340% and average bit volume shot up 245% in the final quarter of 2014. The attacks, which appeared in the Black Lotus Q4 2014 Threat Report, were described by Shawn Marck, co-founder and chief security officer at Black Lotus, as “smokescreens for other underhanded activity.” The largest attack drew 41.1 gigabits per second in bit vo
