  • Updated Jaguar Mark 2 puts new spin on a classic

    David Szondy
    30 Aug 2014 | 2:13 am
    Whether driven by Inspector Morse or the less-than-pristine example in Withnail and I, the Mark 2 is one of the most memorable Jaguars. It may not have the flash and stand-out gorgeous lines of the E-Type, but since it was introduced in 1959, the Mark 2 had a reputation as a fast, capable saloon. Now an 18-month collaboration between Jaguar Director of Design Ian Callum and Classic Motor Cars Limited (CMC) has produced an updated riff on the Mark 2 suitable for the 21st century...

    Budding DJs grooving on the move who are looking for a much less bulky crossfader for impromptu portable parties on the patio than the likes of the iRig MIX may soon have their wishes granted. The Openmix is billed as the world's smallest audio mixer, and crams a miniature audio crossfader into a plastic or aluminum case not much bigger than an iPod shuffle. It puts an end to the abrupt stops and starts of fixed, pre-prepared playlists by allowing anyone to smoothly mix tracks from any pair of audio source devices sporting output jacks, such as smartphones, tablets, laptops or MP3 players...

  • Cartilage grown from patients' noses used to repair their knees

    Ben Coxworth
    29 Aug 2014 | 2:23 pm
    Depending on the part of the body and the nature of the injury, cartilage either doesn’t grow back at all, or does so very slowly. That’s why joint injuries often take a long time to heal, to the point that scientists are looking into using things like hydrogels and 3D printers to help speed the process. Now, however, researchers from Switzerland’s University of Basel are reporting that cartilage cells harvested from a patient’s own nose can be used to grow replacement cartilage for their knee. ..

    Last year, US entrepreneur Judah Schiller crossed San Francisco Bay on a bike – and no, he didn’t ride that bike across the Golden Gate Bridge. Instead, he mounted it on a Shuttle Bike kit, which adds pontoons and a propeller to a user-supplied bicycle. Since then, Judah has been working on designing an all-in-one "waterbike" of his own. The result, the Schiller X1, was officially unveiled this month. ..

    Why trust is the new currency in Age of Context and why Nokia lost it here. In the Age of Context lots of companies will go over the freaky line. What is that line? Where at least some people are uncomfortable with the privacy implications of the service. At EVERY speech I’ve given about our new book privacy comes up and people tell me they are scared by this new world that we’re heading into where systems like Google Now help you based on all sorts of private data, from where you are standing to who has sent you airline plans.

We talk about it often. I keep running it. Now, what did they do right? They did fix their battery issues. It doesn’t put a major strain on my battery anymore. It does have some users, it’s just that the user count isn’t going up very fast and the UTILITY…

    You may want to take a quick gander through your entire Facebook history, because Facebook is testing a feature that makes your status updates searchable on mobile. And I bet there are some updates you just wouldn’t want to be found.The feature isn't entirely new; Facebook began making all your updates searchable on the Web last year as part of its Graph Search function. That uses Facebook’s massive social database to churn out results to highly specific queries like, “Friends who like pizza." Searching posts and status updates isn't available for everyone yet, even on the…

    Google Chrome is the most popular Web browser in the world. Part of its appeal comes from its ability to let you fully customize your browsing experience with a slew of extensions. Extensions are small, lightweight programs that personalize your Chrome installation with new features. You’ve probably already downloaded an extension or two.

Since they’re so easy to build, there are currently more than 53,000…

    Jim Frederick, the first editor I had during my time as a tech writer for TIME, died unexpectedly on Thursday night. He was only 42, and I’m still in shock. The loss would be incalculable no matter what the circumstances, but it feels especially jarring and surreal given the bright future Jim was building for himself. Along with his wife Charlotte, he’d just switched coasts from New York to San Francisco in order to start a media consultancy. (I got the LinkedIn notification formally announcing the news just yesterday morning.) Jim’s most obvious legacy will be his work as a…

Normally, such events involve driving new cars. But when we hit the road during this one, I willingly sat in the back seat and fooled around with my phone and tablet–because the primary purpose of the event was to demonstrate the 4G LTE broadband and Wi-Fi hotspot features built into the cars. Across its brands, GM is being particularly aggressive about rolling out in-vehicle LTE connectivity. Most Buick models,…
  • A Celebration of James Garner’s Polaroid Commercials

    They weren’t the best thing he ever did, or the one which we’ll cherish the most. But with the sad news of the passing of James Garner, it’s worth pausing to remember the commercials he did in the late 1970s and early 1980s for Polaroid. And–this being Technologizer–it’s how we’ll memorialize him here. When it came to celebrity spokespeople, Polaroid wasn’t stingy: Laurence Olivier did the first ad for the SX-70 camera, and Danny Kaye touted the ill-fated Polavision instant movie system. Hiring James Garner was a similarly classy move, but the…

Those virtual environments allow businesses to scale more efficiently, and to faster implement new services.

The New Nintendo 3DS is backwards compatible with older 3DS games, but it will also have its own exclusive titles. Is it supposed to be its own, new device, or not? If it is, I worry that Nintendo is shooting itself in the foot by not coming out with a bigger bang and a new name. This new device is an even smaller incremental jump than from the Wii to the Wii U, and anecdotally, most…

Some people simply never learn from their mistakes. Which reminds me of a joke: An Apple critic with two very red ears went to his doctor. The doctor asked him what had happened. “I was ironing a shirt and the phone rang,” he said. “But instead of picking up the phone, I accidentally picked…
  • How Microsoft and Apple’s Ads Define Their Strategy

    Tim Bajarin
    29 Aug 2014 | 1:47 am
    Recently, after spending a lot of time with many of Microsoft’s OEM partners and looking at their overall strategic view of the PC and tablet markets of the future, it has become clear to me there really is a huge difference between how Microsoft and their partners view the computing market compared to the way Apple designs and markets their Macs and tablets to these same users. This divide in strategy is very pronounced. In a sense Microsoft approaches the market from the top down, while Apple goes after the market from the bottom up. Microsoft centralizes their strategy around their…
  • My Phablet Skepticism Thesis

    Ben Bajarin
    28 Aug 2014 | 2:35 pm
    I have been publicly doubting the existence of the 5.5 inch iPhone for some time. I promised many on Twitter I would share my overall thesis on the category so here it is. Starting from the data points, we know several things. In the USA, phablet sales are quite small. Our estimates have the active installed base of all Galaxy Notes in the US at under 10m units. Phablets, or smartphones with screen sizes above 5.3″, have tended to not sell well at any price point in the US market. However, the US market is not the only one that matters. Phablets are successful in some parts of Europe…

    This post originally appeared at and was re-posted at Tech.pinions with Matt’s permission. When Steve Jobs announced the transition from PowerPC to Intel processors in 2005, he revealed something that, in hindsight, seemed obvious to everyone who didn’t anticipate the switch: There are two major challenges in this transition. The first one is making Mac OS X sing on Intel processors. Now, I have something to tell you today: Mac OS X has been leading a secret double life for the past five years. We’ve had teams doing the “just in case” scenario. And our rules have…

While these interviews have been a great experience for me to learn from some of the biggest names out there, the main advantage has been the relationships I have created.

  • Why Aren't We Farming Octopus?

    The Conversation
    30 Aug 2014 | 5:15 am
    Octopuses grow quickly, have lots of tasty flesh and are found all over the world. As the world's supply of fish diminishes while the number of humans keeps increasing, it seems these creatures would make an ideal mass-produced food for our hungry mouths. So where are all the octopus farms? The main thing that prevents octopus farming at large scale is that the common octopus - Octopus vulgaris - is tough to feed in captivity, especially when first born. After hatching, octopuses first exist as tiny organisms known as paralarvae, drifting around the upper ocean in among clouds of plankton…

    Aereo is back in a district court trying its "okay, fine, you say we look like a duck, we'll act like a duck" explanation so that it can stay in business and pay the statutory rates for a cable company. As you hopefully know by now, this is in response to the Supreme Court's "you're a cable company!" ruling. The broadcasters, of course, just want Aereo to die, so they claim that even if the Supreme Court declared it a cable company, the company still can't pay statutory rates. Aereo tried to skip the district court and go straight to the appeals court, but that attempt was (probably…

There have been a series of lawsuits recently concerning the no fly list, and the government has basically done everything possible, practically to the point of begging judges, to avoid having those cases move forward. So far, that's failed miserably.

    I completed the Bulldog 25K trail race this past weekend, August 23 2014. This was my longest and only second trail race. After doing the XTERRA Malibu Creek Challenge 22K race in May, I had started eyeing the Bulldog race and immediately started training for it. I took a bit of circuitous route though, doing a series of 5K races including the Father’s Day 5K race and three of the fun “Boogie Nights” 5K races that were held on Wednesday afternoons near Surfer’s Point in Ventura. The other element that I added was some comprehensive trail running. Between May and August…

I finally decided on running my first 5K race, the inaugural Father’s Day 5K 10K Race in Ventura on June 15. This race had a couple of appealing aspects – it had a beach cruiser giveaway and the course happens to be on one of my favorite training routes. I also liked the idea of doing a 5K run to determine my “5K pace” which is helpful for planning workouts. For example, if I’m doing a certain type of interval run I can determine the pace based on an actual 5K…

This was my first of hopefully many trail races and it was a bit of a beast. I decided to do the race about three weeks ago and only had one chance to check out part of the course.

In the crowded Linux distro field, it is very rare to find a newcomer that is not like any of the others. It is also rare to see a first stable release offer the kind of smooth performance and expansive feature set as Peach OSI. Peach OSI is a great starting point for Linux newcomers.

Among the 17 million rumors regarding the next iPhone is that it will feature such a display -- the camera and Touch ID components already feature sapphire. Until Apple reveals the truth about its next smartphone, other manufacturers, like Huawei, are jostling for sapphire-embossed market share. The new version of the Ascend P7 will give Huawei the first sapphire-screen smartphone, though it'll be more expensive than previous iterations.

The resulting bad press could damage your brand.

Note: When people hear the name Revere, they think of these things: Paul Revere’s ride, guns, the IROC-Z automobile, lots of gold chains and language that doesn’t include the letter r at the end of a word.

But series creator Aaron Sorkin was way ahead of his time all those years ago when he focused on Internet privacy in the season one episode “The Short List.” In the episode, Bartlet has nominated a man for the Supreme Court whose writings suggest a lack of regard for Americans’ right to privacy. During a heated Oval Office discussion, presidential advisor Sam…

    Weirdly, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind and Men in Black might not have been that far off the mark with their memory-wiping devices. We’re not quite there yet, but while we wait, scientists have discovered a way to change bad memories into good ones. They were particularly interested in place-specific memories, as we store memories of locations in the hippocampus while our feelings about that place are filed away in the amygdala. So there’s no neurological reason our feelings have to be tied to a particular place, and yet they often are. As New Scientist reports, Susumo…

Cheyer elaborates: “Google Now has a huge knowledge graph—you can ask questions like ‘Where was Abraham Lincoln born?’ And it can name the city.

    When I was growing up, I was fascinated by space. One of my earliest memories—and I know this is strange—is, when I was four or five years old, trying to grasp the concept of emptiness in space. I imagined the vast emptiness of space between galaxies, nothing but emptiness. I tried to imagine what that meant, but most of all, I tried to imagine what it would look like. That question, what color empty space would be, rolled around my brain the most. I couldn’t shake it. I would be doing something–playing Nintendo, coloring, whatever–and that question would pop into my…

    Tesla plans to build a massive new lithium ion factory that would double world production volume. Doing so could dramatically change the car industry: When Tesla first began working on its Model S saloon barely five years ago, lithium-ion batteries were priced at about $1,000 a kilowatt-hour (kWh). Manufacturers are notoriously secretive about pricing details, but industry insiders hint that prices have now slipped to anywhere from $400 to $750 a kWh. Even so, that means the 85 kWh pack in a Model S costs Tesla between $34,000 and $63,750. A study by the Boston Consulting Group projected that…

    I was wondering if it’s possible to set up webcam to monitor my house while I’m out. What’s the best way to do this? There are a couple of options on how to do this. My very first setup, many moons ago, consisted of a laptop with a couple of USB webcams connected to it. I was using software to upload an image to an FTP server every 30 seconds. It did the job, but was a pretty flimsy setup. Today I would recommend an out-of-the-box solution called Watchbot. I have one of these little babies set up at home, and it was a doddle to set up. Here’s a photo of the little…
  • What is Bitcoin?

    Owen Cutajar
    25 Nov 2013 | 4:09 pm
    I keep seeing the word Bitcoin come up in the media and on website. What is this Bitcoin thing all about? Bitcoin is a peer-to-peer digital currency that functions without the intermediation of a central authority. It has been called a cryptocurrency because it is decentralized and uses cryptography to control transactions and prevent double-spending, a problem for digital currencies. Once validated, every individual transaction is permanently recorded in a public ledger known as the blockchain. Payment processing is done by a network of private computers often specially tailored to this…

    I’m putting together a timesheet in Excel and wanted to multiply my hours by an hourly rate. Ive been messing around for hours and reading up in the help but there’s nothing that suggests how this can be done. What’s the best way to do this? It turns out to be much easier than you think. It’s a great little technique that can be used whether you’re calculating what it costs to sit in McDonalds all day, or playing with pignose amplifiers at guitar center. Here’s what you need to do: First of all, make sure your hours are formatted in a time format. This…
  • How can I host my server farm?

    Owen Cutajar
    4 Sep 2013 | 2:50 pm
    I’ve been playing with Virtual Machines for some time now, and after realising I can host a number a machines on one server I’ve come up with a plan to put all my company’s servers on one box. The tower I bought for my plan isn’t cutting it though, what do you recommend? Putting all your servers on one box is a great plan. It’s definitely more efficient than lots of small servers, both in terms of power and space. However, trying to fit them all on a tower or desktop isn’t the way forward. You need a proper server, located in a proper data centre to ensure…

Each startup founder connected and networked in Downtown Vegas and was referred to The Mill by established members of the community. It’s an interesting look at how the Downtown Project is fueled by the 3 Cs: collision, connectedness, and co-learning.

    I honestly could not tell you guys with one-hundred percent certainty what “DevOps” is actually about – and I’m really not ashamed to admit it. I mean, really, as VentureBeat points out, it’s really one of those concepts that people pretend to know something about, but when grilled on a deeper level, they shy away from responding because they actually know nothing. An elementary introduction to DevOps: it’s a portmanteau of “development” and “operations”, and literally it deals with both aspects as applied to the world of app…

  • Parachute: A Canadian Startup's Take on Homebrewing Great Coffee the Right Way

    29 Aug 2014 | 3:11 pm
    I’ve been obsessed with good coffee since I’ve been an adult (if, arguably, I am one now). Through three million miles on the road, drinking coffee was amazing and terrible and everything in between. I’ve learned that you need two things for a truly superb cup of coffee: The ideal coffee beans. The perfect method of preparation. Anything else is, as they say, all palaver. Recently I met a Toronto-based coffee startup that has already proven that they have the answer to the first prong and, this week, is about to prove they they have the answer to the second.

  • Five Lessons I Learned from a Successful Crowdfunding Campaign

    29 Aug 2014 | 3:06 pm
    Earlier this year, I set out on my first ever crowdfunding campaign to raise money for a student group at the University of Alberta called AlbertaSat. The goal of our campaign was to raise $15,000 to cover the launch cost of a cube satellite created by students and faculty—the first of its kind to be designed and developed in the province of Alberta. While my team and I were all familiar with crowdfunding as a model, none of us had any formal experience in launching or managing a campaign.

  • Nintendo Reveals a New, Lightweight 3DS

    29 Aug 2014 | 11:50 am
    Source: Getty / Handout We can't wait for the holidays because Nintendo's new portable 3DS gaming system will be at the top of our list. The company revealed photos of their two latest models for 2014, which they have simply called the "new" 3DS and "new" 3DS LL, on their corporate Japanese website. Nintendo has somehow made the new handheld gaming consoles both larger and lighter. The new 3DS weighs about a half a pound and the larger 3DS LL weighs just slightly more than that. If you haven't owned a portable gaming machine since the Game Boy, you'll probably notice something new: a…
  • The New Somebody App Is All About Face-to-Face Communication

    29 Aug 2014 | 11:32 am
    These days it seems easier to have a conversation over text message than in person. Our smartphones are attached to our bodies practically. Artist Miranda July decided to turn our smartphone addiction into a way to spark more human, face-to-face interaction with her new app: Somebody. Here's how it works: "When you send your friend a message through Somebody, it goes - not to your friend - but to the Somebody user nearest your friend. This person (probably a stranger) delivers the message verbally, acting as your stand-in." The app, which was made with support from fashion brand Miu Miu,…

      Beefing up your free Dropbox account with extra space isn’t hard if you know what to look for, but the company just smartly streamlined its Pro plans in case you need even more cloud action. Kiss those tricky tiered plans goodbye: all that’s left now is a 1TB option that’ll set you back $9.99 a month (or $99 a year). Not a bad deal considering that’s how much you would’ve paid Dropbox monthly for 100GB of cloud storage just a few days ago, and the company is sweetening the pot with some neat new sharing and security features too.

  • iPhone 6 – Speculation

    20 Aug 2014 | 9:28 am
    The presumptive name for Apple’s next-generation iPhone is iPhone 6. Yes, it will be the 8th generation phone in Apple’s product lineup, internally referred to as iPhone7,1, but don’t let those numbers distract you. Apple can call any phone it releases by any marketing name it wants and the next number after 5/5s is 6. So, iPhone 6. iPhone 6 release date speculation If Apple holds to the same pattern as the last two years, the iPhone 6 will be announced on or around September 9, 2014, with a release date of September 19, 2014. That said, Apple doesn’t always hold to…

    10 Aug 2012 | 2:29 pm
    These are decidedly fast-paced times that we are living in, with the developments in digital technology gathering pace at an unstoppable rate, and sometimes these developments do not take the predictable path. When Apple made the decision to embrace HTML 5, rather than Adobe Flash as a platform for its devices, this was seen as (to put it kindly) an eccentric move – but a few years down the line and no-one is talking about it in those terms, as HTML 5 has trounced Flash in the subsequent battle. In fact, one of the major reasons why HTML 5 has risen to prominence so rapidly in the period…

    Everyone knows that robots are merely lifeless machines, no matter how amazing their abilities may be.

In fact, there’s even a whole branch of robotics called “biomimetics” dedicated to that single premise. The term biomimetics means literally to “mimic life.” Insects are one form of life from which biomimetic scientists draw significant inspiration for new types of robotic technology.

Coupled with the rapid growth of ecommerce and businesses needing an Internet presence, a designer’s workload can become problematic.

  • As Expected, Aereo Pleads Its Case For Survival

    Mike Masnick
    29 Aug 2014 | 7:39 pm
    Aereo is back in a district court trying its "okay, fine, you say we look like a duck, we'll act like a duck" explanation so that it can stay in business and pay the statutory rates for a cable company. As you hopefully know by now, this is in response to the Supreme Court's "you're a cable company!" ruling. The broadcasters, of course, just want Aereo to die, so they claim that even if the Supreme Court declared it a cable company, the company still can't pay statutory rates. Aereo tried to skip the district court and go straight to the appeals court, but that attempt was (probably…

He's been going through Internet Archive scans of old, public domain books, isolating the images, and turning them into individual images. Because, while the books and images are all public domain, very few of the images have been separated from the books and released in a digital format. To achieve his goal, Mr Leetaru wrote his own software to work around the way the books had originally been digitised. The Internet Archive had used an optical character…

    Some foods are considered delicacies, but some edible stuff can be just strange or disgusting. It's actually a bit puzzling how some ingredients and dishes are created. Sure, some weird food items are simply the result of people eating something to avoid starvation, but not always. Here are a few more kinds of protein you might want to try to eat someday. A traditional dish from Greenland called kiviaq is made from fermented birds sealed in the skin of a seal. Clearly, this meal was concocted as a way to preserve meat, and it's not so strange to people who are accustomed to eating it. [url]…

    While we're still waiting for the White House to actually nominate a new head of the US Patent and Trademark Office, the other big administration "intellectual property" job has also been vacant for over a year: the "Intellectual Property Enforcement Coordinator" (IPEC) job, frequently referred to as the "IP Czar." That job was previously held by Victoria Espinel, who left a year ago and immediately jumped to a lobbying job with the BSA, the copyright maximalist trade group run by Microsoft. While I was disappointed to see Espinel jump to such a group, and disagreed with some of things she…

    Back in July, we wrote about the Intercept releasing a leaked copy of the US law enforcement guidelines for putting someone on the no fly list. There have been a series of lawsuits recently concerning the no fly list, and the government has basically done everything possible, practically to the point of begging judges, to avoid having those cases move forward. So far, that's failed miserably. The Rahinah Ibrahim case, for example, showed how a Stanford PhD student with no terrorist connections was put on the list by someone checking the wrong box on a form (and then was kept on a separate…

They were born in West Bengal in India and grew up in a 20-acre farm in Gujarat where they grew their own vegetables and milked the cows for their daily dairy. Later, they moved to other countries in order to pursue their respective college degrees. The transition from farm life to the concrete city life inspired them to create SkinYoga and to share with the world the importance of leading a yogic more

  • Mourning Beard

    C.K. Sample III
    13 Aug 2014 | 9:36 am
    The last time I shaved was the morning of my father’s funeral, which was a month ago. I wanted to have a physical sign of my mourning. Originally I thought to shave my head, but the first thing that Dad said to me when I first arrived in the hospital to see him before he passed was “C.K., your hair is beautiful!” I decided to grow a mourning beard and give it at least a month. It’s been a month, and as you can see, I’m not genetically inclined to grow a beard. Or at least not quickly. It’s actually on the verge of becoming a real beard, and I’m not…

    C.K. Sample III
    7 Aug 2014 | 8:01 am
    I’ve just been really, really, incredibly busy. I see other people giving up on blogging. Like Scoble today, who is most likely doing it for a stunt, like he’s done before with Google+ and Posterous (or as I like to call them, dying and dead). It’s a stupid move. The only reason I post as much to twitter as I do is because I have a backup of all that data here on this blog. This is my space. It’s my corner of the Internet that I have full control over. It’s not some other company owning everything I post. That’s important. Since we all first started…

    I don’t really do much blogging anymore. 2013 was sparse. 15 posts. I use Twitter and Flickr more than anything else. I archive all that here too, via the Lifestream section of the site, so if Twitter dies, I still have a copy of all the ephemera I’ve tweeted.UPDATE: Well, turds. It appears my tweets stopped being archived in here in early June. That. Sucks. ANOTHER UPDATE: Whew! Duplicate tweets stored here. I used to be a professional blogger. Now I’m a professional who only occasionally blogs. Odd. Anyway, it’s just something I’ve thought about a few times…

    Baby Girl Sample 12 weeks 3 days Sonogram, a set on Flickr. Here’s a set of pictures and videos from our sonogram this past week on Thursday. We know she’s a girl and not at risk for various genetic abnormalities thanks to a new blood test that Kristin took before the sonogram. The videos are great, as she’s moving and kicking around. She’s currently the size of one of the small action figures that Jackson plays with. It’s crazy how much more detailed these things are just about 4 years after when we had all this done for Jackson. We have some names in the works,…

  • How to Protect Your Brand in Social Media

    25 Aug 2014 | 10:20 am
    The very characteristics that make social media incredibly appealing to consumers are the same ones that make it ripe for scammers seeking to exploit the value and power of established brands. It's not unusual for fans and consumers to be exposed to something new every day, whether a promotion, contest, fan page or enticing content. And, without much history to signal what is genuine and what is not, consumers find themselves at risk of being hoodwinked by brand impersonators, malicious account spoofers and counterfeiters.This white paper offers best practices for protecting your brand--and…

    Kate Spade has a brand new collection out, and it’s ready to take you on a fashionable whirlwind tour of Tokyo. The new accessories take cues from Japanese culture, or, maybe more accurately, things associated with Japan. But look, Hello Kitty is probably not on that list. Some, including Bloomberg, have remarked upon the similarities between Kate Spade’s new cat handbag and Hello Kitty. Nah. The Kate Spade collection looks to be more generally based on Japanese culture than any specific brand or character. And, one fixture of that culture is Maneki-neko, the waving cat that…

If it means less money going to cable companies, that has to be a good thing, right? One such antenna is the Eclipse from Antennas Direct. The Eclipse can pull in digital HDTV network signals from over the air, giving you all of your local network stations for free.

  • 5 Tips on Writing an SEO-Friendly Blog Post

    Caroline Prince
    25 Aug 2014 | 12:37 am
    It has been well established that SEO is just as essential to a blog writer as it to is to a website content writer. If your blog content is not garnering a good readership despite the high quality of content in the post, it could mean that search engines are not finding your blog. On the other hand, sacrificing quality for the sake of SEO is not prudent, either. Ideally, striking the balance between quality and SEO would not only open your blog post to discovery, but can even lead to and sustain a loyal readership. Here are a few tips you can follow to make your blog post SEO-friendly: 1. It…

  • 5 Effective Ways to Monetize Freemium Apps

    Raja Manoharan
    23 May 2014 | 3:21 am
    App monetization is a hot topic today. More and more app developers are finding that their users don’t want to pay to download an app – they want it free, and they’re willing to suffer through advertising and other marketing methods to get that free price point. In fact, free apps routinely outperform paid apps in all categories save a couple (business utilities and navigation). Does that mean you’re doomed never to make a profit from your efforts? Not at all. Freemium has become the new standard, and some experts expect it to account for up to 93% of the global app market in just a…

  • Seeing through the illusion: Apple's mastery of the media

    29 Aug 2014 | 9:49 am
    Apple's public relations (PR) department is probably the best in the world - certainly more impressive at shaping and controlling the discussion of its products than any other technology company. Before customers get their first chance to see or touch a new Apple product, the company has carefully orchestrated almost every one of its public appearances: controlled leaks and advance briefings for favored writers, an invite-only media debut, and a special early review process for a group of pre-screened, known-positive writers. Nothing is left to chance, and in the rare case where Apple doesn't…
  • A failed experiment: how LG screwed up its webOS acquisition

    29 Aug 2014 | 9:31 am
    Things were looking up in early 2013 for the team behind webOS, a pioneering but star-crossed mobile operating system. After surviving the implosion of Palm and a rocky acquisition by HP, LG stepped in to buy the team. The consumer electronics giant seemed like a white knight with a plan: To make webOS the core of LG's next-generation smart TV platform, and use the brains behind webOS to create a much-needed engine of innovation at LG. To create a unit that was meant to help the company to beat competitors like Samsung with Silicon Valley smarts. A disruptive force. Eighteen months later, the…
  • 'How we're addressing misleading apps in Windows Store'

    28 Aug 2014 | 3:18 pm
    Microsoft has explained that they have removed more than 1500 apps from the store. Every app store finds its own balance between app quality and choice, which in turn opens the door to people trying to game the system with misleading titles or descriptions. Our approach has long been to create and enforce strong but transparent policies to govern our certification and store experience. Earlier this year we heard loud and clear that people were finding it more difficult to find the apps they were searching for; often having to sort through lists of apps with confusing or misleading titles.
  • Genode 14.08 introduces new GUI architecture

    The new Genode version 14.08 extends the graphical abilities of the framework to the level of flexibility expected from a general-purpose OS. In contrast to contemporary GUI stacks, Genode approaches the problem from the angle of maximizing security. This premise led to a fairly unique design. Further highlights of the new version are a new port of OpenVPN, an upgraded DDE Linux, vast performance improvements of the base-hw kernel, and networking for VirtualBox on top of the NOVA microhypervisor. It goes without saying that a flexible and dynamic GUI stack is needed for a general-purpose…
  • An awful week to care about video games

    28 Aug 2014 | 11:59 am
    What an awful week for the culture that surrounds and influences video games. That's putting it very mildly. The people responsible for all of this - like the people who threatened a critic of the portrayal of women in games with physical/sexual violence - should be sent to jail. Especially the 'Kevin Dobson' character should probably be locked up in a mental institution for life. Especially the treatment of women in the gaming industry - whether on-screen or off-screen - is absolutely horrible. As an n=1 social experiment, I often pretend to be female in my League of Legends matches, and the…

    Are you the kind of person who loves getting wake-up calls when you stay at hotels, and wish you could bring that experience into your everyday life? Now there’s an app for that: Wakie is a free mobile app that brings together a social network of friendly strangers from all over the world to give each other wake up calls. It’s a great system; in the morning it’s easy to hit a snooze button every nine minutes until you’re late for work, but suddenly speaking with a kind person you don’t know really motivates you to become alert so you can speak with them at least somewhat…

    Forgive me, but you’ll find at the bottom of this post yet another Ice Bucket Challenge video. I was on vacation and somewhat off the grid a couple of weeks ago when the ALS (Lou Gehrig’s Disease) Ice Bucket Challenge meme hit, so I wasn’t quite sure what the shout-out from Hammock president John Lavey was all about when it hit my in-box. By the time I could get around to responding to his challenge, the meme had grown to epic status. How epic? Today (August 24, 2014), the ice bucket full of contributions being poured onto the ALS Association has crossed the $70 million…
  • The Story-telling Power of Maps

    I continue to be amazed by the story-telling power of maps. This New York Times interactive map of recent fighter jet and drone strikes in northern Iraq makes me wonder how the use of visualized data used by news media in the form of maps would have changed the way people understood, in real-time, previous wars and conflicts. Yes, social media is changing the face of journalism, but so is data-driven journalism and visualized data of this quality. (Not to be confused with the lack of quality found in the vast majority marketing-oriented infographics.) A couple of weeks ago, for the Hammock…

The music is still there. The memories are still there. But if Michael Jackson can die, does that mean a part of us dies with him? I think that’s what we mourn.

For instance, Disqus lets me moderate discussions or reply to comments via email itself and commenters can use their existing Facebook or Twitter accounts to sign-in for commenting on web pages.

    Seems like Samsung wasn’t the only one who was in hurry of unveiling company’s smart watch. LG just went ahead and revealed the gorgeous looking LG G Watch R as well. Unlike Samsung’s Gear S, the LG G Watch R will be running Android Wear instead of Tizen. LG will be showcasing the G Watch R at the IFA, in Berlin that is only few days away. We are wondering if the R in the watch’s name stands for ’round’ considering how the LG G Watch R is completely round and it looks good to be honest. The specs are pretty decent as well, the LG G Watch R comes with a 1.3…

    I have clients who diligently do the work — grow their lists, communicate value to them, collect testimonials, communicate them, ask for referrals, etc. — and enjoy revenue growth of 20% or more in their first year with me. Almost always, this is millions of dollars in new sales. I have other clients who listen to my advice, but do not apply it. They don’t change their behavior much, and do not enjoy the results they deserve. Further, their market does not get to benefit from their enormous value. You already know what to do. The question is, are you doing it? The distance…

With two 5-year-olds. And so, they asked “why?” approximately 200,000 times. And we answered. Kids don’t hesitate to clarify, dig deeper, and understand precisely. Adults do. We don’t ask “why” for reasons that boil down to self-limiting beliefs: we don’t want to impose, offend, or project that we do not understand. These are confidence and self-esteem…

    When you tell people you’re great, you’re selling. People expect that of you, and take it with a grain (or several grains) of salt. Also, although marketing is no place for modesty, personal moderation, discomfort with boldness, “preferring to let our work” do the talking hold us back from blowing our own horn. All of which is why we must obtain and communicate the thoughts and feelings of our happy customers. With testimonials and case studies, we must let our customers tell their peers about what they love best about us. There is nothing we can say that is more…

According to Us Weekly, the Coldplay frontman has been wooing the Oscar-winning actress five months after splitting from Gwyneth Paltrow. “Chris is sweeping Jen off her feet,” a source told the weekly magazine of the Coldplay singer’s affection for Lawrence. “That’s his thing.” Apparently, the Coldplay singer is making great efforts to…

The reality TV show that the two had made bank on together ended up like a slaughtered golden goose.

    One of the toughest parts about making sense of the conflict between Israel and Palestine is that so many kids are getting killed. People in the faraway safety of the United States choose up sides and make their cases for who is in the wrong and why. Some use religion as their basis. Some call for cooler heads on one side or both. Some can’t make sense out of any of it at all. But when the United States entertains the notion of sending money to help our allies in Israel, there are people who have to take all these hard questions to heart and decide what to do. Those people sit in Congress,…

We saw that with the smartphones where every second day, a new device was launched until it became blatantly clear that was not working, we saw that with tablets which never worked, and to a smaller scale we are seeing that with watches now. It has hardly been an year since Samsung introduced its first smart watch, the Gear and since then we have already had about 5 other iteration and that is not…

It was no surprise that the HTC M7 swept away a lot of awards for mobile last year and you would expect the latest flagship, HTC M8 to bag a few this year too. However, one thing that usually goes unnoticed is that HTC makes some really good budget devices too. We have had the likes of Desire 816 in the past which are fine phones. Keeping in line with that HTC has announced the Desire 510, yet another mid range budget smartphone, but with the LTE radio on board. In terms of looks, the Desire 510 looks a bit like the…

  • Lantronix Rallies Around Digital Classroom with Launch of Print and Learn (PAL) Program

    Mark Tullio
    29 Aug 2014 | 9:53 am
    According to the Center of Digital Education, K-12 schools in the U.S. will spend almost $10 billion on educational technology in 2014. In higher education, the National Retail Federation states that student spending for electronics (tablets, laptops, etc.) is up 20% from last year. There’s no doubt that classrooms are going digital – yet even with the increase in tablets, Chromebooks and other mobile devices, there remains a strong need to print. But printing from these mobile devices can be a challenge – with software downloads and kludgy apps that may or may not be effective. With…

    “If I have seen further it is by standing on the shoulders of giants.” —Isaac Newton There are dozens of great quotes attributed to Newton, but the aforementioned quote is definitely one of my favorites.   As one of the most influential scientists of all time and as a key figure in the scientific revolution, Newton’s contributions have impacted all areas of our lives, especially technology. One of the critical success factors for any tech company is “strategic partnerships.” Nowhere is this more critical, and more relevant, than during a market transition – and that’s…

    Instagram , the image filtering app released for multiple mobile operating systems, has released another app, calling it the Hyperlapse. This app has currently been released for the iPhone, making it exclusive so far. Instagram’s Hyperlapse is able to time lapse recorded videos and smooth out tracking shots. The great thing about the app is that users will not require any add on or app to smooth out the recorded video (such as a Steadicam system) and the app itself will be able to carry out that function. Hyperlapse was originated from Luma, which is a software image stabilization system…

    It can be safely predicted that in the future, increased number of humans will be served by robots. Thus, robots need to know more about humans and their surroundings.

      Strategic Alliances and other grandly named partnerships never seem to live up to their florid marriage announcements. Apple and IBM are it – again – but this time, Apple is the larger, more prosperous company, and IBM is trying the bad old recipe of regaining growth by cutting down. Let me slip into something more comfortable: Devil’s Advocate robes. Thus togged out, I will explain why this Apple + IBM rapprochement won’t work – or, worse, it will. First, the clash of cultures.

      The modern smartphone is 7 years old and yet, when it comes to designing mobile applications, we are still barely scratching the surface. Today we’ll see how harnessing technology already embedded in a phone can unleash great potential.  A mobile news app has simple goals: Capture and retain reader attention, and repeat the process, several times a day. Pretty straightforward. But not that simple in the real world. For a news provider, the smartphone screen is the the most challenging environment ever seen.

      With one million titles and no human guides, the Apple App Store has become incomprehensible for mere mortals. A simple solution exists: curation by humans instead of algorithms. Dear Tim, You know the numbers better than anyone — I don’t need to quote them to you — but we all know that the iOS App Store is a veritable gold mine. Unfortunately, the App Store isn’t being mined in the best interests of Apple’s customers and developers, nor, in the end, in the interests of the company itself.

    When Apple announced its 64-bit A7 processor, I dismissed the speculation that this could lead to a switch away from Intel chips for the Macintosh line for a homegrown “desktop-class” chip. I might have been wrong. “I don’t know exactly when, but sooner or later, Macs will run on Apple-designed ARM chips.” Thus spake Matt Richman in a 2011 blog post titled “Apple and ARM, Sitting in a Tree”. Richman explained why, after a complicated but ultimately successful switch from PowerPC chips to Intel processors in 2005, Apple will make a similar switch, this time to ARM-based…

    18 Aug 2014 | 9:05 pm
    Improvements in DNA analysis are helping us rewrite the past and better grasp what it means to be human.Every day our DNA breaks a little. Special enzymes keep our genome intact while we’re alive, but after death, once the oxygen runs out, there is no more repair. Chemical damage accumulates, and decomposition brings its own kind of collapse: membranes dissolve, enzymes leak, and bacteria multiply. How long until DNA disappears altogether? Since the delicate molecule was discovered, most scientists had assumed that the DNA of the dead was rapidly and irretrievably lost. When Svante Pääbo,…

    I have been using Dropbox since 2010 and have nearly 290 GB of storage space in my account. However, I decided to give OneDrive another shot since it comes integrated deeply with my new Windows 8.1 device out-of-the-box. Unlike Dropbox which currently lacks document editing capabilities, OneDrive brings the added benefits of Microsoft Office online integration. This seemed like a good reason to switch, but I quickly noticed a few critical drawbacks after spending a week using OneDrive exclusively for all my documents.

    Start-ups have come into vogue. Today’s Silicon Valley has brogrammers, swag galore, and even its own reality TV show. Geeks are the new party rockers and we’re starting to see the resurrection of crazy start-up launch parties. Lean mean start-up machines will tell you that launch parties are poor customer acquisition strategies. And 99% of the time, these bootstrappers are correct.

  • Surface Pro: What The Kickstand?

    3 Mar 2013 | 11:16 pm
    I decided to purchase a Microsoft Surface Pro when it made a debut last month. It seemed like the perfect device which could function both as a laptop and a tablet. Since it features a full-blown Windows 8 Pro operating system, I could use for just about anything including Photoshop or running Ubuntu in Virtualbox when coding. The 128 GB model goes for about $999. Throwing in a type keyboard brings the price tag up to about $1,100. The Intel i5 processor, a full HD display, and a USB 3.0 port makes the package even more attractive. A comparable 11-inch Macbook Air with a 128 GB SSD still…

Several observational studies have investigated the association between vitamin D status and schizophrenia. The November 2013 issue of Schizophrenia Research carries a study that found vitamin D deficiency to be linked to the first episodes of psychosis (FEP). Another very recent study, published online on July 22, 2014 in the Journal of Clinical Endocrinology and Metabolism highlights the role of vitamin D in psychiatric health.

  • AP – NORC Survey Observes How Americans Evaluate Physician Quality

    The Affordable Care Act focuses on expanding health insurance coverage to millions of Americans. Americans while getting enrolled in specific health benefit plans and choosing physicians, must consider whether the physician will be able to provide high-quality care. Often, when it comes to defining a quality healthcare provider there is considerable difference between how experts and consumers actually define it. Being licensed doesn’t necessarily mean that a doctor is capable and up-to-date on all best practices. A new poll conducted by the Associated Press-NORC Center for Public…

Inappropriate use of the EHR system has been a strong concern since 2012 with the Departments of Justice and Health and Human Services alerting hospitals about the wrong use of this system. Hospitals that used this system were billing Medicare for a significantly more amount than hospitals using paper records. They were charging higher for a large…

  • You Are Here: Urban Social-Computing Snapshots

    Nancy DuVergne Smith
    25 Aug 2014 | 11:00 pm
    Boston graffiti map honors this Banksy quote: “Art should comfort the disturbed and disturb the comfortable.” Maps reveal much more than geography. The MIT Media Lab’s Social Computing group is meshing data and design to produce a cascade of maps that humanize and personalize  selected creative cities. They call each map an “atlas of experience.” Their maps, produced though a project called You Are Here, target the kinds of detail that can matter in urban living. For example, you can find a map showing the fastest transportation mode in Chicago (and many other cities); the…

  • Happy 9th Birthday Joomla

    16 Aug 2014 | 10:00 pm
    9 years ago today, on 17th August 2005, I was just one of seventeen brave (or foolhardy) people who announced that they were leaving the very successful Mambo project and starting out on their own. It was a snap decision and truth be told if we had stopped to think about how much work lay ahead of us in the coming months I suspect we might not have been in such a rush. We were greatly helped at the time by Eben Moglen of the Software Freedom Law Centre and I believe we were their first "clients". Just two weeks later, on 1st September, our new baby had a name and the world was introduced…
  • J and Beyond - Chicken Soup for the Soul

    12 Jun 2014 | 1:51 pm
    I arrived at J & Beyond not in the best of moods. I'd been off work sick for the previous month and to be honest I was tired, run down and a little depressed. There are just times when things become a constant battle of frustration and nothing seems worth the effort and that's exactly where I was. After months of preparation for JAB14 I was no longer interested and was determined that this would be my last JAB and probably my last Joomla event. Mood 0/10 I had convinced my JAB teammates to introduce two new features for 2014 and I was no longer certain that the Make it Happen or…
  • Create your own Joomla manual

    28 May 2014 | 10:00 pm
    Documentation in any Open Source project is seen as the Holy Grail. It's great to have but somehow never quite fulfils the needs of the users. Joomla has an excellent documentation resource but I think it is fair to categorise these docs mainly as "reference" material and not "user guides". There are some excellent books and some truly awful books but without exception they are generic titles targeted as the site builder or site programmer. If you build sites for people or you have had a site built for you, you don't need or want a thousand page manual, you want a simple twenty page guide…
  • Easily create web site images

    15 Apr 2014 | 8:42 am
    Some people are able to open up a graphic editor and produce stunning original artwork for their web sites. I'm not one of those people. For me it's usually a case of searching the net in the hope of finding the perfect graphic that exactly matches my needs. Usually I fail in that search and end up with the closest thing I can find. Yesterday I found a new web site that does all the hard work for you. With Canva you can quickly and easily take any of their stock elements and completely customise them to your exact needs. It's very quick and incredibly easy to use. There are loads of…
  • Akeeba Backup for WordPress

    31 Mar 2014 | 10:00 pm
    Yesterday was world backup day. Did you remember to take your backups? Of course you're taking them daily aren't you and not just once a year!! Every Joomla user knows that they can use the awesome Akeeba Backup to take a backup of their site quickly and easily and even automate the process so that the backup is taken daily, with the backup archives stored in a secure off-site location. When you went to backup your WordPress, phpBB, PrestaShop or other php/sql web site were you jealous? Did you sit there wondering why it was so much harder to backup your WordPress web site? Have you struggled…

    3 Sep 2013 | 9:35 pm
    The 2013 ACC kicked off on Tuesday morning with an acknowledgement by Philippine Long Distance Telecommunications (PLDT) CEO Napolean L. Nazareno that “we’re going through a profound and painful transformation to digital technologies.”  He continued to explain that in addition to making the move to a digital corporate culture and architecture that for traditional telcos to succeed they will need to “master new skills, including new partnership skills.” That direction drives a line straight down the middle of attendees at the conference.  Surprisingly, many companies attending and…
  • What Value Can I Expect from Cloud Computing Training?

    30 Aug 2013 | 6:31 pm
    Normally, when we think of technical-related training, images of rooms loaded with switches, routers, and servers might come to mind.    Cloud computing is different.  In reality, cloud computing is not a technology, but rather a framework employing a variety of technologies – most notably virtualization, to solve business problems or enable opportunities. From our own practice, the majority of cloud training students represent non-technical careers and positions. Our training does follow the CompTIA Cloud Essentials course criterion, and is not a technical course, so the non-technical…
  • Connecting at the Westin Building Exchange in Seattle

    International telecommunication carriers all share one thing in common – the need to connect with other carriers and networks.  We want to make calls to China, a video conference in Moldova, send an email message for delivery within 5 seconds to Australia – all possible with our current state of global communications.  Magic?  Of course not.  While an abstract to most, the reality is telecommunications physical infrastructure extends to nearly every corner of the world, and communications carriers bring this global infrastructure together at  a small number of facilities…

    Just finished another frustrating day of consulting with an organization that is convinced technology is going to solve their problems.  Have an opportunity?  Throw money and computers at the opportunity.  Have a technology answer to your process problems?  Really?. The business world is changing.  With cloud computing potentially eliminating the need for some current IT roles, such as physical server huggers…, information technology professionals, or more appropriately information and communications technology (ICT) professionals, need to rethink their roles within organizations.

  • How valuable is search engine optimisation for businesses?

    19 Aug 2014 | 7:37 am
    All businesses need to appear near, or at the top, of search engine results lists. This is the first place that consumers turn when looking for any kind of product or service, and they will rarely click past the first few results. You can appear at the top of these lists with the help of internet marketing agencies. The internet has completely transformed the way in which consumers shop for products and services. They no longer walk to the high street or look in the book for local services, they now go online. You can find all kinds of products and services online, and this method brings…

    Computer systems are a familiar sight in any office environment, and even at home we have access to at least one computer in the household! Whether you use a Windows PC, an Apple Mac or some other variant, computer systems are part and parcel of everyday life in the 21st century. For businesses, computer systems have been a godsend. They enable them to automate many time-consuming tasks, and, as a result, boost their productivity and efficiency.

  • Simplify with Software Defined Storage

    Jim Miller
    28 Aug 2014 | 1:10 pm
    There was a time at the height of my home video and audio craze that the number of devices I needed to watch a movie could no longer be counted on one hand. Amplifier, preamplifier, tuner, CD player, DVD player, TV, cable box . . .you get the idea. As I organized my vast array of remote controls on the coffee table, I was blissfully unaware of any issues. That was the case until my wife just wanted to watch a movie one night while I was gone, and she had a conniption fit trying to figure everything out. There was no way she was going to invest the time to learn what to power up, and what…
  • Return on Investment (ROI) of Data Science as a Service

    John Myers
    18 Aug 2014 | 9:31 am
    In skiing, the “black diamond” run or ski slope is often referred to as “high risk/high reward.” You receive lots of “reward” skiing the black diamond slopes, but you have a significant amount of “risk” associated with variable terrain, such as the presence of trees and the possibility of injury. However, the black diamond slopes are very fun to experience, and you can mitigate the risks with preparation, practice, and a really good skiing helmet. Data science is one of those “high risk/high reward” concepts in technology. An organization can gain huge financial rewards by…

It was a great opportunity to catch up and see what was new and where the company is headed. The company appears to be enjoying a bit of a renaissance, looking to redefine its role in the data center as virtualization makes headway into the network domain under the banner of SDN. While true production SDN remains in its infancy, with no single approach emerging to solve all the ills of the network world, there is no debating that programmability will…

    Welcome to “The StorHouse”! This house will accommodate all areas of storage, and there is plenty to cover. As a product manager in storage for 20 years, I had the opportunity to see some pretty interesting changes in the market. Events such as the move to distributed computing, the advent of technologies like virtual disk and snapshot copies and moving from large single large expensive disk (SLEDS) with huge 11” platters to a single solid state PCIe card with 6TB of capacity. Disk storage costs have fallen from over $1,000 per GB to under $.10 per GB with 4TB SATA drives.

    A little over a year ago, I got into a rather animated argument about whether IT could measure its performance by the “value” it delivered rather than by purely measuring “costs.” My dinner companion insisted that IT could now, always, and forever only be measured on costs. I disagreed. In fact I had just planned [...]

  • Cannon Penguins, an explosive Windows Phone arcade game

    George Ponder
    30 Aug 2014 | 6:28 am
    Cannon Penguins is a odd little Windows Phone game that has you shooting penguins from a cannon in an effort to capture fish that are randomly swimming across the screen. The arcade game has three gaming modes to offer a little variety and is available for low memory devices. I'm not sure if Cannon Penguins can stand up to marathon gaming sessions but for short spurts, it's worth a try.

    It is no big secret that money is a major concern for many startups. Unless they have a hefty investment or a fair amount of funding, startups often rely on bootstrapping. Startups need a space for their base of operations; however, a dedicated office space can exceed far beyond the entrepreneur’s budget. Many entrepreneurs rely on coffee shops, cafes, or even working from home in their early years.But there is another option for startups, who require a space without the high costs. Coworking spaces are an attractive alternative, providing a dedicated space at a cost-effective…

  • Other States Should “Line” Up Behind California | A Tale of Process, Andreesen & Lyft Line

    Mike Montgomery
    14 Aug 2014 | 9:38 am
    When ride-sharing company Lyft announced its new service Lyft Line — which, for those unaware, lets people headed in the same direction share the cost of a ride together — the first thing I thought of was the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC). Weird, I know. But CPUC was behind last year’s rule legitimizing for-profit ridesharing companies like Lyft, Sidecar, and Uber for legal operation within the state. Without that action, it’s safe to say an idea like Lyft Line would’ve been a major uphill climb — if it saw the light of day at all. At the announcement of the new…

  • How to recycle your [legal] briefs safely

    Deborah Savadra
    10 Jul 2014 | 7:30 am
    In my observation, if there's one thing you lawyers love, it's repeating yourselves. No, not when you speak; it's when you write. Y'all recycle so much old material from briefs and other documents, it puts Ed Begley, Jr. to shame. Some of the problems with all that cutting and pasting are pretty obvious: another client's name being left in (oops) or funky formatting that doesn't match the new document. But others aren't. What sort of evil stuff lurks in that text you just pasted over from your last magnum opus? And how's it going to undermine your next court filing? Click the link below to…

    Yesterday Google announced the end of its great Google Authorship experiment as it relates to search results. Author snippets won’t be shown on SERPs and authorship markup will not weigh in search ranking, effective immediately. Authorship has had a mixed history. While Google was interested in the idea as far back as 2007, it was only with the launch Google+ that it gained any traction. Suddenly, authors could link all their work back to a single Plus profile and get credit across the web. But the victory was short-lived: by 2013 Google reduced how many author snippets it showed per…

  • What Can Big Data Do For eCommerce?

    21 Aug 2014 | 11:28 am
    Big Data is something of a nebulous concept, and like many ideas without a clear definition, it’s been seized on by various writers and pundits as the next big thing. It’s easy to write endlessly about something when you aren’t forced to constrain yourself to practicalities. The eCommerce industry is nothing if not pragmatic, ever […]
  • WordPress Misconceptions: Do You Need A Custom WordPress Design?

    19 Aug 2014 | 8:20 am
    I was recently talking to a friend who wants to create a site for his small business. He’s a landscaper, and needs a simple site — perhaps a few pages to describe his services, a contact form, and a blog. As someone who is fairly knowledgeable about WordPress web hosting, it’s difficult for me to […]

    The Sorcerer
    27 Aug 2014 | 2:43 pm
    Intel talked a lot about the Haswell Refresh processors codenamed Devil’s Canyon, and they were very excited about it . The newer Haswell (codename: Devil’s Canyon) came with certain improvements in comparison to earlier processors. Difference was mostly on the physical side of the processor. Intel used a ‘next generation thermal interface material’ in the hopes that it would please enthusiasts and overclockers who found that older model Haswell processors used a thermal paste under the integrated heatsink, though many would have preferred to see Intel using solder. The…

Both of these processors will be clocked at 4.10 GHz base clock and 4.30 via TurboCore. Other than that, its nothing new.

    Hilary Jansen
    28 Aug 2014 | 2:11 pm
    These are invaluable insights from an editor that I plan to use as I format my PR and content marketing projects. It’s so easy to slip into auto-pilot and push out the company name/ brand/ products rather than think about what will resonate with audiences and make them engage. Some of these tips are very specific (e.g. try to keep all paragraphs under 30 words and to three lines) and I plan to put this tip into practice and test the results. A little restriction on my writing never hurt! Which tips are new to you? This is an edited version of Timeless Storytelling Tips from Former PR…

    Most online tutorials that I have found describing the process of creating, burning, and mounting ISO image files are written separately or are only about doing one process, so this guide is going to describe some free software that you can use to create and manipulate ISO images files for all purposes. Basically, the software is split into three categories: software to create an ISO image file from a folder on the hard disk or from a CD/DVD, software to burn an image file to a CD/DVD and software to mount an image file as a drive in Windows. How to Create an ISO Image File There are two free…

    Even though most people never change the settings on their computers, there are some situations where it’s very useful to be able to turn off or disable a certain program, service, or setting in Windows 7 or Windows 8. For example, over the last few years working as an IT Professional, there have been many occasions where it has been proven very useful to disable the firewall in Windows, to disable the popup blocker in IE or to disable the autorun/autoplay feature for the CD/DVD drive. Disabling items such as regedit, task manager, hardware devices, cookies, etc should only be performed…

    So you just bought a new computer and can’t wait to start using it right? So you fire up that bad boy eagerly awaiting the cool new features and instantaneous loading of programs with a single click of the mouse, but what do you get? Annoyingly and shockingly, your new computer boots up and greets you with popup ads, lots of shortcuts to useless programs and useless services with enough icons on your desktop to fill up half the screen on your new widescreen display! It’s 2014 and the only computer I have bought that doesn’t have any bloatware on it is the Google Chromebook.
  • How to Recover Accidentally Deleted Files

    If you’re reading this article, you’ve probably deleted something important on your computer that you need to recover ASAP! Hopefully, the files or folders that are now gone were deleted only a short while ago because the more data that gets written to the disk, the more chance that the section of the hard drive that contained the data will be overwritten with new data, thereby making your recovery chances a lot lower. Before we get into the different ways to recover deleted files, first make sure you check a couple of things: 1. Always check the recycle bin to make sure your…
  • Free Up Disk Space using TreeSize

    25 Aug 2014 | 6:54 pm
    Trying to figure out where all of your hard drive space has disappeared to is often quite a challenge in Windows with all of the hidden folders and temp directories! As an IT Professional, one tool that I use almost every other day is TreeSize, a small utility that tells you exactly where all of your hard drive space is currently allocated. Using TreeSize Free edition, you can immediately see which folders and sub-folders are taking up the most hard disk space. Once you have that info, it’s a piece of cake to quickly free up hard drive space taken up by temp files or other useless data.

    With thanks to Matt Kieffer for the image The Multimedia Messaging Service (MMS) have been available on our phones for the last decade or so. It allows people to share their experiences via photos to their family and friends. Advances in technology have opened the door to brands to target these people.

    David Szondy
    30 Aug 2014 | 2:13 am
    Whether driven by Inspector Morse or the less-than-pristine example in Withnail and I, the Mark 2 is one of the most memorable Jaguars. It may not have the flash and stand-out gorgeous lines of the E-Type, but since it was introduced in 1959, the Mark 2 had a reputation as a fast, capable saloon. Now an 18-month collaboration between Jaguar Director of Design Ian Callum and Classic Motor Cars Limited (CMC) has produced an updated riff on the Mark 2 suitable for the 21st century...

The Openmix is billed as the world's smallest audio mixer, and crams a miniature audio crossfader into a plastic or aluminum case not much bigger than an iPod shuffle. It puts an end to the abrupt stops and starts of fixed, pre-prepared playlists by allowing anyone to smoothly mix tracks from any pair of audio source devices sporting output jacks, such as smartphones, tablets, laptops or MP3…

  • Cartilage grown from patients' noses used to repair their knees

    29 Aug 2014 | 2:23 pm
    Depending on the part of the body and the nature of the injury, cartilage either doesn’t grow back at all, or does so very slowly. That’s why joint injuries often take a long time to heal, to the point that scientists are looking into using things like hydrogels and 3D printers to help speed the process. Now, however, researchers from Switzerland’s University of Basel are reporting that cartilage cells harvested from a patient’s own nose can be used to grow replacement cartilage for their knee. ..

Instead, he mounted it on a Shuttle Bike kit, which adds pontoons and a propeller to a user-supplied bicycle. Since then, Judah has been working on designing an all-in-one "waterbike" of his own. The result, the Schiller X1, was officially unveiled this month. ..

    Some clients just suck. There’s really no nice way to put it. Learning how to expose and avoid them BEFORE you let them hire you will keep you from tearing your hair out (and stave off the gray hair for just a few more years). Of course, it’s fun to joke about it… but dealing with hellish clients is actually serious as… well hell! That’s because getting good at avoiding clients who just don’t fit well with your personality and how you operate will help you avoid getting seriously burnt out and overwhelmed. And, it’ll keep you loving your job which…

It’s THAT important because it immediately makes everything much more clear: You see if you actually like coding You figure out what your clients expect from you You understand what to charge and why And, most importantly… you gain CONFIDENCE.

    I was recently asked: “How do I fill out my profile on sites like Elance and oDesk? How do I fill them out in a way that’s honest but more impressive than leaving them blank?” Here’s the simplest way I can put this… Your unique situation can and SHOULD be positioned to highlight your advantages. For example, when I started looking to get hired for freelance IT jobs I was completely self-taught and I believed that was a disadvantage. I believed coders who had gone to school were in a better position than me and would have an easier time convincing clients to hire…

    29 Aug 2014 | 4:25 pm
    Device drivers are like the fundamental building blocks for your Windows PC as they help all your hardware devices to work as they should work. No matter how useful the device drivers are, they are always a headache if you don’t have proper driver software or if your OS fails to properly identify the hardware connected. In case of driver problems, Windows tries to automatically download and install the required drivers. But when Windows fails to download the drivers automatically, you can hit the manufacturer’s website for proper drivers. But even this won’t yield any good…
  • App Grid – a Faster Alternative to Ubuntu Software Center

    Himanshu Arora
    29 Aug 2014 | 2:25 pm
    Ubuntu Software Center (USC) was introduced in Ubuntu 9.10, and has since been a one-stop shop for installing and removing software. It actually made finding, installing, buying and managing applications a lot easier and user friendly. As far as features and design are concerned, it does its job perfectly, but I personally feel that it’s a bit slow (especially during start up) and often hangs.If you are a regular USC user, and are looking for a faster alternative, then let me introduce you to App Grid, a fully featured, yet lightweight, software center equivalent.It Is FasterWhen I…

Given our sun is a star and stars are suns, explaining the source of the sun’s energy would help us understand why stars shine. An early explanation offered as to why the sun shines came from the Greek philosopher Anaxagoras. In around 450 BCE he taught that the sun shines because it is a “red-hot” stone. During the mid-19th century, German physician Julius Mayer estimated that if the sun were a giant lump of burning coal it could only shine for some…

    30 Aug 2014 | 4:00 am

This is where an external battery pack can come in handy. Lumsing's PBJ-6200 Power Bank has already proven to be a life saver in the couple of weeks I've had it. The device is roughly the same…

The result: a new mandate to optimize the cost, usage, performance, availability and security of our cloud infrastructure. What followed in the next year was a journey that took my…

  • Explicit GoTenna Use Case: Buying Drugs

    Michael Arrington
    18 Jul 2014 | 9:27 am
    I read about GoTenna yesterday – a neat little device that connects to your phone via bluetooth that allows you to send messages to other people using GoTenna even if cell service is out. It basically turns your phone into a handheld UHF radio with encryption (which you can’t do as a normal citizen with a CB). Watch the video here on the GoTenna site. I noticed the guy smoking (and selling) marijuana yesterday and chuckled. Someone at Hacker News noticed the same thing and commented on it. Another says “I think they are quite deliberately pointing out that dealers can…

    If you’re involved in the startup world in San Francisco you’ve likely been to the Creamery on Townsend and 4th street. It’s iconic, even if only recently so. In 2012 I wrote about the Creamery in a post talking about the shift in startups from the Palo Alto area to San Francisco, noting that “CrunchFund has probably closed (meaning the verbal agreement part) more deals there than anywhere else.” Other press cemented the cafe’s reputation as the place to do business. Today there are probably at least a handful of startup meetings going on there at any given…

    My defamation action against Jenn Allen, the woman who falsely accused me of rape last year after I ended our relationship, is over. She retracted her statements and apologized, which is the very relief I sought before filing this action, and I accordingly dismissed the lawsuit. The settlement agreement is here. Unfortunately, when you have been accused of rape — even provably falsely as I have been — there’s no way to “win”. For the rest of my life, when someone searches my name on the internet, the word “rape” will appear somewhere among the…
  • Ex-NSA Guys’ Startup To Protect You From NSA

    Virtu, a Washington D.C. startup, raises $6 million in new capital. The company is building an encryption product that will work with email platforms, including Gmail, Yahoo, and Outlook. Which is great except that the founders are ex-NSA guys who used to be paid to do things like collect emails and phone call information from hundreds of millions of terrorist suspects Americans. The kind of stuff that this new product is designed foil. It’s like hiring Darth Vader to build planetary defense systems to thwart the Death Star. Except the analogy doesn’t quite work.

  • How does the Huawei Ascend P7 compare?

    Tim Dickinson
    21 Aug 2014 | 6:06 am
    Telecommunications giant Huawei is making another push to grab some of the smartphone market share outside of China with the Ascend P7, but how does the flagship 4G smartphone compare to the leading smartphones on the market today? Design Huawei describes the phone as lighter and thinner than the competition, and they may well be right with the P7 just 6.5mm thick (139.8 x 68.8 x 6.5 mm) and weighing in at 124g. That makes it slimmer than the iPhone 5S, Samsung Galaxy S5 and Sony Xperia Z2, and lighter than its Android competitors as well. However, beyond just its size there is little in…

  • EE’s move to charge extra to skip the queue with “priority support” is a farce

    Tim Dickinson
    14 Aug 2014 | 10:09 am
    Mobile phone network EE has made a controversial move by offering customers the ability to “skip the queue” for support, angering many customers. Premium support is not a new idea, but for a company where forums are filled with complaints of people struggling with slow speeds or getting any connection at all, it looks very much like giving two fingers to their customers. People put up with poor support (and paying for it) from companies such as Ryan Air because they are offering budget basement prices – you get what you pay for. However, EE is not marketing itself as the…

    Russian hackers have stolen 1.2 billion usernames and passwords from thousands of websites, in what is believed to be the biggest data breach in history. Hold Security, a US-based security firm with a history of uncovering large-scale hacks, claim that a Russian cyber gang dubbed ‘Cybervor’ stole over 4.5 billion records, of which 1.2 billion appear to be unique, from 420,000 websites and FTP sites. The stolen credentials include over 500 million email addresses. The hackers initially bought smaller databases of stolen credentials on the black market and used them to attack email…

Skillern, a convicted sex offender, has reportedly been charged with possessing child pornography.

First, you have to find a city with a governing body that has a clue about technology. Second, these folks need to believe that Internet service is a lot closer to electricity than it is to something like a lawn service. As far as they’re concerned, it’s a utility. This move will tick off companies like Comcast, so in turn they go to the state legislature, contribute to a few campaigns, and a law gets passed saying that…
