    By: Hillel Fuld (@hilzfuld) Listen up, folks. I am not a big fan of product leaks or Apple rumors. I mean, we all know that prior to every big Apple launch of any kind, the rumor mill goes into high gear. How often are those rumors accurate? Not very often… But then there are some sources that you just know are reliable. Marques Brownlee is one such source. And this video of the iPhone 6 display is obviously legit so can we just put that behind us and discuss the topic at hand? Great. According to many sources, the iPhone will introduce the first display on a mobile phone made out of…
  • What's up at EMC? A Cisco-EMC marriage with VMware as wedding gift?

    Wall Street analysts and journalists are having a field day with reports that EMC is looking for a merger partner. One analyst says a Cisco-EMC marriage makes sense with VMware as a wedding gift. EMC owns 80 percent of Vmware. Meanwhile, Forbes says an EMC-HP deal "would have been a disaster."

    For a while there, the Contour actioncam company was in a state of hiatus, leaving many people wondering when and if it would resume making cameras.

  • Is the App Ecosystem Sustainable?

    Bob O'Donnell

    The focus on mobility and mobile platforms as the growth engines for the tech industry’s future is now so engrained into most people’s heads that it seems nearly blasphemous to suggest there could be faults in that thinking. But there’s a question that keeps popping into my mind—is the mobile app ecosystem really sustainable at its size and rate of growth? I’m increasingly starting to think that no, it isn’t. Some simple math helps with my reasoning. First, we’re at well over a million (likely around 1.2 or 1.3 million) apps in both the iOS and Android stores. Yes, the revenue…

    Let’s start with the bad news: The Apple Watch. This beautiful, technological marvel is, in my view, the device our future selves point back to as delineating when Apple changed forever. Not necessarily for the good. The company long known for delivering absolutely amazing computing devices, so perfect, so uncannily universal that often times, one device, one product line, one price point is sufficient, is no more. The new Apple Watch starts out with three distinct variations and what appears to be a near-infinite number of eye-catching bands. This feels wrong. Tim Cook said the Apple…

    19 Sep 2014 | 1:00 am
    When Apple and GT Advanced announced a partnership to make and purchase sapphire screens, most of the media jumped to the conclusion Apple was going to use them in their upcoming smartphones. However, when the iPhones were launched and no sapphire screens were used in the iPhone 6 or the iPhone 6 Plus, I began digging into the reason. What I have learned about this issue and why Apple chose not to include sapphire in this generation of iPhone is fascinating and reinforces why all of us need to be more careful before jumping to conclusions.

I mean, we all know that prior to every big Apple launch of any kind, the rumor mill goes into high gear. How often are those rumors accurate? Not very often… But then there are some sources that you just know are reliable. Marques Brownlee is one such source. And this video of the iPhone 6 display is obviously legit so can we just put that behind us and discuss the topic at hand? Great. According to many sources, the iPhone will introduce the first display on a mobile phone made out of…
  • The One Android Flaw that Kept me on iPhone but Is Now Fixed in Android L

    3 Jul 2014 | 6:58 am
    By: Hillel Fuld (@hilzfuld) Listen, I have no intention of starting an iOS vs Android debate here so if that is why you opened this article, allow me to introduce you to the little X in the corner… I use an iPhone 5S as my daily phone and until recently, there was no way I was going to replace that with an Android device. Yes, I am fully aware that some of the newer Android flagship devices are more impressive than the iPhone, in both personality and looks, but for me, despite many MANY attempts, I stuck with iPhone. I have played with the Nexus 5. I have even played with the HTC M8.

    The so-called Internet of Things — encompassing everything from smart fridges to fitness trackers — has turned all kinds of products into computers. And every single computer needs a processor, and those processors consume power. This is why it's important to have a whole different class of chip for devices without a traditional user interface — "embedded" processors. ARM, the company that has chip tech is in almost every smartphone today, just gave the category a big upgrade.

That's finally happening with the launch of the company's P-Series of sets.

  • DailyDirt: Charging Up Your Car In The Future

    Michael Ho
    23 Sep 2014 | 5:00 pm
    Charging an electric car battery can take hours, so it seems somewhat inconvenient compared to a few minutes at a conventional gas station to fill up a tank. Electric cars also have shorter ranges than conventional vehicles. There are a few solutions to these problems, but many of them aren't quite ready for consumers. Here are a few possible technologies for cars that don't run on gasoline. A battery startup called Sakti3 claims its battery could double the range of a Tesla S to nearly 500 miles. However, this battery isn't commercially available yet, and it's uncertain whether any electric…

    We recently wrote about recent developments in Canada regarding the Canadian Radio-Television and Communications Commission looking to apply the same "culture tax" to Netflix and other internet services as is done to broadcasters of television programming. In case you're not aware, there are taxes in place in Canada in which broadcasters of mostly foreign (read: American) programming are required to pay into a fund supposedly used to create more "Canadian" content. And, if that sounds strange and convoluted to you, you're not alone, but more on that later. It appears as though things are…

Good, old fashioned, local police departments can do it, too. And apparently some do, based on this ACLU legal filing against one local sheriff in Oklahoma, who took part in building and using an extensive database on citizens' activities that was likely illegal and was never shared with prosecutors or defense attorneys.

  • What's So Bad About Making Money Off Fan Fiction?

    Jennifer Parsons
    23 Sep 2014 | 1:30 pm
    Sometimes I read a great fan fiction and think to myself, "Gee, I wish there was a Paypal button here somewhere, because I feel the overwhelming urge to ram wads of money down this writer's throat." This is basically impossible, of course; fanfic is considered an illegal derivative work under copyright law, and even the creators that allow it have a no-tolerance attitude towards fans who try to collect money for their work. If fans were allowed to earn money, conventional wisdom claims, it would siphon money away from the original creator and they would lose business. But what if…

    Mike Masnick
    23 Sep 2014 | 12:27 pm
    Back in May we wrote about a problematic new anti-revenge porn law in Arizona. As we've been detailing for a while, revenge porn is a horrible thing, done by disgusting people, but we're quite reasonably worried about many of the legal attempts to "deal" with it, because they're often overly broad, or create other problematic consequences. The Arizona law was immensely troubling in that it appeared to punish First Amendment protected activities, and turning them into a "sexual offense" that was considered on par with domestic violence in the law. Even posting something for a journalistic…

    Apple users who have downloaded iOS 8 since its release last week report they are encountering a number of problems with the new operating system. Among the top complaints are fast-draining batteries, Wi-Fi connection problems and crashing apps. When it announced the release of iOS 8, Apple said the operating system would deliver a "simpler, faster and more intuitive user experience." In addition to 4,000 new APIs (application programming interface), iOS 8 features a new level of security that prevents Apple from being able to bypass users' pass codes. The change means it's no longer…

    Seeking to round out its cloud services offerings, Sweden's Ericsson is acquiring a majority stake in the U.S.-based, platform-as-a-service (PaaS) company Apcera. Further details of the all-cash deal, expected to close in the fourth quarter of this year, were not released. Based in Stockholm, the information and communications technology manufacturer and service provider sees PaaS as the "key to success" in the cloud. Apcera's platform, Continuum, lets enterprise users deploy and manage diverse IT workloads either in the cloud, in their own facilities or via a hybrid approach. Founded in…
  • HTC Reported To Be Working on Google's Nexus 9 Tablet

    23 Sep 2014 | 7:21 am
    Google has reportedly turned to HTC to develop its next Nexus tablet, the 9-inch Nexus 9. According to an article Monday in The Wall Street Journal, HTC engineers have been visiting Google's headquarters in Mountain View, California, "in recent months." If true, the report is noteworthy because HTC currently focuses largely on smartphones and accessories. Its last foray into the tablet market ended in disappointment: The Android-based HTC Flyer was released in spring 2011 and was discontinued in December that same year. Google has partnered with a variety of companies on its Nexus line. It…

  • Data Breach Victims or Enablers?

    Bill Brenner
    19 Sep 2014 | 8:28 am
    Back in May,  my good friend Eric Cowperthwaite caused a stir with a blog post about security breach victims getting demonized for failing to prevent break-ins. Other industry friends passionately disagreed. My thinking on the matter continues to evolve. But as is usually the case, my thinking takes me to the middle. Companies that suffer a breach — Home Depot and Target have been among this year’s biggest poster children — are victims. They don’t set out to put their customers’ data in danger and they probably thought they were practicing all due diligence…

    Included in all the tweets and Facebook postings about the 13th anniversary of 9-11 yesterday was this from friend and co-worker Martin McKeay: Never forget 9/11 and terrorism. But don’t forget how many rights have been taken from us in the name of fighting terrorism. He’s got that right. There’s been plenty of outrage in recent years over the U.S. government running wild, violating our privacy in the name of security. The Bush Administration was rightly criticized over warrantless wiretapping. More recently, the Obama Administration and such government agencies as the NSA…

    If you look closely, the 1996 Tim Burton film “Mars Attacks!” offers us a few security lessons. Let the following clip play as I run through some examples… Lesson 1: If you release a white dove over someone’s head before you verify who you’re dealing with, you have failed to practice due diligence. The resulting bad press could damage your brand. Lesson 2: Regarding Jack Nicholson’s speech about two out of three branches of the government still working: Layers of security may be smart, but if it’s badly configured and government-issued, it…

    Growing up in Revere, Mass., taught me some very simple lessons about information security. 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. Information security? You probably think I’ve lost what little sanity I had. But I’m serious.

    Although these acronyms and the constant evolution of cellular and wireless network technologycan be baffling, the important thing to understand is that a variety of networks are used to provide data connections to your users ’ devices. As with the physical and diversity - related challenges of the devices themselves, you need to be cautious about assumptions for these connections.Speed or throughput of the network connection is an obvious constraint.

    As you might imagine, the networks responsible for bringing content and services to a mobile device are also notably different from the networks to which you connect laptops and desktops. Many contemporary mid - and high - end mobile devices include WiFi data connectivity, and when used in that mode, the device is connecting to a local access point, which, in turn, is most likely connected to a regular broadband - grade connection. In this case, the network connection for the device is fast, reliable, and low in latency — just as it is for the other computers and devices that are connected…

    Less than 5 years ago, when most mobile devices used their own embedded or simple real - time operating systems, it appeared to mobile web developers as though there were as many operating system versions as there were models of devices. Given that these operating systems tended tocontain their own varied browser implementations, with no option for users to upgrade them or install alternatives, the challenge of delivering a reliable web experience to all of them was almost insurmountable. Such browsers were typically very limited, and often derived from their WAP browser precedents, provided…

Very old mobile devices can be easily recognized by their larger, ungainly form, but following a period in the 1990s and 2000s, during which manufacturers sought to develop ever smaller devices, most modern devices are now of broadly similar size and weight. Not by coincidence, this is about the size that fi ts comfortably into an adult hand.A limited selection of device form factors tend to prevail in today ’ s mobile market place. Some…

    It’s been a bad time for Phones 4U, and despite the fact that companies like Vodafone, EE, and Dixons Carphone have purchased some of the failing chain’s stores, administrators have announced that 362 stores will close permanently, which will result in 1,700 job losses. 720 Phones 4U staff are being kept on temporarily in order to close down the stores, but they too will be made redundant after which the total number of job losses will be 2,400.

    When they hear the word selfie, some people will groan and others will cheer. It’s one of those words that can become ingrained in our society in recent times. Selfie is surprising to say the least, because it’s not focussed on snapping pictures of yourself on your phone — it’s actually a social network that has nothing to do with photography. It’s an iPhone app that’s designed to let people record 24-second videos of themselves talking about whatever they feel like at the time, and replaying to other people using the same method. So why the name?

  • LG Electronics expects to sell 800,000 OLED TVs in 2015

    19 Sep 2014 | 8:04 am
    According to Digitimes, some "industry sources" say that LG Electronics dropped its OLED TV sales target for 2015 from 5 million TVs to only 800,000. LG still expects OLED to become the mainstream TV display technology in the future.While it ain't good to hear that LG is less optimistic, it should also be noted that the 5 million sales target (which indeed we heard from one LG executive) was never realistic. LGD's upcoming Gen-8 M2 OLED production line (which is still not online) will have a monthly capacity of 26,000 substrates - or about 150,000 55" panels. Assuming 100% yields (which is…
  • Confirmed: Apple's Watch uses an AMOLED display

    Ten days ago Apple unveiled the Apple watch, their first smartwatch product. The company did not reveal the display technology - they just said it was a flexible Retina display. The Watch itself will only be released in "early 2015", and I thought we'd have a long time to wait before we know whether this is an OLED or LCD display.But according to several sources, it is now confirmed that the Watch uses an OLED. I cannot disclose all the sources, but my trusted and knowledgeable friend Jennifer Colegrove from Touch Display Research says she's 100% sure it is an AMOLED (it is interesting that…

  • Faster STT-MRAM via different field-like orientation

    31 Aug 2014 | 4:13 am
    Researchers from the A*STAR institute in Singapore suggest a new design that could make STT-MRAM devices faster. Using a computational model, the researchers tried different designs for the relative orientation of the magnetic fields in both MRAM layers (the 'field-like' term).The strength of the 'field-like' term depends on the device geometry and the materials used. Devices with a strong field-like term has a greater potential to reduce switching times than for devices in which the field-like term is negligible. A better understanding of the field-like term is still needed, but this work…

The most rewarding is a cross-functional systems approach that balances quality activities to achieve product performance requirements and meeting internal and external customer requirements (needs & wants).

    By now, you’ve heard/read it before: failure is inevitable and you just need to learn to embrace it and move on. It’s a common message and lesson that has been shared repeatedly in the startup community because, well, failure happens a lot in this sector. Oftentimes, though, the extent of this message doesn’t go beyond accepting the failure on one’s own part – that this failure (or multiple failures) becomes reduced to nothing more than isolated and insular experiences not shared with others in the community. For Randall Thomas, this approach to failure actually…

For a year and a half, back when I worked in the communications department of my church, I was responsible for the church’s blog (on top of everything else I had to do). Some days I loved it. Other days…let’s just say I wanted to go all Office Space on…
  • Identity Crisis: 21 Days to Discovering Who God Says You Are

    KC Procter
    23 Sep 2014 | 7:00 am
    I believe many, especially in the church, are experiencing an identity crisis. They simply do not understand what God says about them or who God says they are in Him. Because when we understand who we are, everything changes.Have you ever felt like you were not good enough? Have you ever felt like you were not smart enough? Have you ever felt like you were not adequate enough? Have you ever had a difficult time figuring out who you are? I know I have. You see, for majority of my life, I’ve experienced an identity crisis. I didn’t understand who I was. I didn’t know what I should be…
  • The Importance of Sound in Film & Video [Video]

    Eric Dye
    23 Sep 2014 | 5:00 am
    Never underestimate the power of sound. One of the first days of taking video production class back in college, we learned about the importance of sound. It seemed silly as a naive college student learning the ropes of mass media. Why are we learning about sound in a video production class? Here’s probably the most #EPIC example: Doesn’t seem silly anymore, does it? As a sound guy it’s easy for me to love and appreciate the power of sound design. I often get frustrated with videographers who are so obsessed with getting ‘just the right shot’ and tweaking their…
  • Evernote Analog: Classy Desktop iPad Dock [Review]

    22 Sep 2014 | 11:00 am
    There is no shortage of tablet cases. From shock protection to keyboards to portfolios with notepads. The options are endless. Not to mention all the color combinations. Having owned the iPad 2 and now an iPad mini, one thing I struggled to find was an adequate solution for using the device on a desk. For a couple of months I’ve used the ZAGG folio keyboard case and despite the small keys it works really well. However, as with most all iPad mini cases, the device is always in landscape position when on a flat service. Reading a Kindle ebook at your local Starbucks with the iPad mini on the…

    22 Sep 2014 | 9:00 pm
    (George Washington University) An interdisciplinary team of George Washington University researchers are investigating more accurate and rapid methods of identification of bacterial pathogens in patients with pulmonary infections, which could lead to more targeted antimicrobial therapy with potentially less adverse effects and lower costs.

    So you ever been in that situation where you either see a message like, “Number of active connections has changed. There are now 2 active connections to this console” Or… “Unable to connect to the MKS: Console access to the virtual machine cannot be granted since the connection limit of ‘x’ has been reached.”  (This second one is most likely to come up when you have either a STIG or security defined limitation to the number of remote connections to use, thus by default you’re more likely to see message #1!) Well, the question is… What do you do in these circumstances?

    23 Sep 2014 | 3:54 pm
    Yikes - the new iPhones are being plagued by a new problem . . . "#bendgate." Even though Apple's giant new smartphones are the most durable iPhones it's ever made, photos of bent 6 and 6 Pluses are cropping up all over Twitter (just check out #bendgate and #bentgate), as well as the MacRumors forums and the French blog MacBidouille. So just, don't sit on your new iPhone, OK? This guy bent a phone with his bare hands. As far as metals go, aluminum is a pretty soft one. The phone is also very thin (7.1 mm for the 6 Plus and 6.9 mm for the 6) which may be why its hardware is so weak. Users have…

The ones we’ve looked at in the past have promised much, and in the end delivered more disappointment than anything else.

    C|Net says that there is a global Amazon outage but everything seems fine for me. Amazon up and working for you guys? Two customer service agents told CNET the worldwide outage is a "known issue" and that the company's technical support team is working on it. One agent attributed the problems to servers being down, while another said the issues are because Amazon is upgrading its site. Both said the outage, which started at about 10 a.m. PT, could last for several hours but should be resolved later Tuesday. Comments

  • The Role of the Reflective IS Scholar-Practitioner

    1 Sep 2014 | 3:55 pm
    While there will always be a demand for competent Information Systems (IS) professionals, let’s face it: in this economy, competence isn’t good enough. It’s the merely competent who will get the pink slips when the bottom line demands payroll cuts. The real plum jobs, the kind that provide tenure for those supercompetents who practice them well, are those that have more far-reaching implications than a simple ability to maintain the servers and keep the databases in order. One way to achieve this pinnacle of success is to become a reflective IS scholar-practitioner. What…

      Do you have children in your house and you want to keep them away from your gadgets? Or your nephews are visiting you quite often? It is already known that smartphones, tablets, computers, and any other devices of that kind are simply irresistible for kids, no matter their age. They are not a simple toy; kids can learn a lot by using a computer, so you shouldn’t forbid them access to this kind of devices, just try to keep them safe. Nowadays, kids are growing up surrounded by such gadgets and they become more tech-savvy day by day. They want to touch everything, to test any gadget,…
  • 5 Examples of Insect-Inspired Robotics

    Adam Thompson
    4 Aug 2014 | 10:50 am
    Everyone knows that robots are merely lifeless machines, no matter how amazing their abilities may be. However, you may be surprised at how often scientists replicate the features and capabilities of living creatures to increase robotic performance. 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. Functions and behaviors that evolved over…

  • Predicting iPhone development via Moore's Law

    9 Sep 2014 | 12:57 pm
    iPhone 6 launched today, apparently the "Biggest Advancement" in iPhone history. In 2010 we made some predictions about iPhone 6 specs based on a Moore's Law progression (see chart above, written in 2010 - as a commentator notes, 2010 "Hot PC's" had gone up a few notches too by 2014), we thought it would be interesting to go back to that - we were estimating it would: - Launch in 2014 (got that right) - 4Ghz processor (actual apparently 25% faster than the 1 GHz processor in the iPhone 5) - 2 Gb RAM (not yet known but unlikely to be 4Ghz) - 256 GB Memory (currently only 128, same as iPhone 5)…

    5 Sep 2014 | 5:47 am
    There is a new trend emerging, perhaps - these 2 posts from Nick Carr & Awedience blog's Chris Arnold are thought provoking. Nick Carr: We talk about Big Oil and Big Pharma and Big Ag. Maybe it’s time we started talking about Big Internet. That thought crossed my mind after reading a couple of recent posts. One was Scott Rosenberg’s piece about a renaissance in the ancient art of blogging. I hadn’t even realized that blogs were a thing again, but Rosenberg delivers the evidence. Jason Kottke, too, says that blogging is once again the geist in our zeit. Welcome back, world. The other…

A judge in Spain ruled that Brett and Naghmeh King must be held [in custody] for up to 72 hours while the court considers whether to grant a British extradition request. The couple, who were arrested in Spain after the five-year-old was taken from a UK hospital without doctors' consent, told the judge in…

    Whoever could have predicted that naked pictures of famous people stuck up in the Cloud would ever be hacked and published. Surely not, I hear you say? Well, in ths case it was an open secret the system was compromised- Business Insider: The ability to gain access to Apple's iCloud accounts has been an open secret among users of porn message boards for years, with enterprising users charging others to "rip" accounts and share nude photos. But even if it was not an open secret, from an information security point of view data in Cloud systems is a nightmare compared to data on your own systems.

  • DailyDirt: Charging Up Your Car In The Future

    Michael Ho
    23 Sep 2014 | 5:00 pm
    Charging an electric car battery can take hours, so it seems somewhat inconvenient compared to a few minutes at a conventional gas station to fill up a tank. Electric cars also have shorter ranges than conventional vehicles. There are a few solutions to these problems, but many of them aren't quite ready for consumers. Here are a few possible technologies for cars that don't run on gasoline. A battery startup called Sakti3 claims its battery could double the range of a Tesla S to nearly 500 miles. However, this battery isn't commercially available yet, and it's uncertain whether any electric…
  • Netflix/CRTC To Showdown Over Confidential Business Information The Government Refuses To Protect

    23 Sep 2014 | 3:44 pm
    We recently wrote about recent developments in Canada regarding the Canadian Radio-Television and Communications Commission looking to apply the same "culture tax" to Netflix and other internet services as is done to broadcasters of television programming. In case you're not aware, there are taxes in place in Canada in which broadcasters of mostly foreign (read: American) programming are required to pay into a fund supposedly used to create more "Canadian" content. And, if that sounds strange and convoluted to you, you're not alone, but more on that later. It appears as though things are…
  • Oklahoma Sherriff Accused Of Keeping Extensive Database On Citizens

    Timothy Geigner
    23 Sep 2014 | 2:36 pm
    You may not have known this in all the fallout from the ongoing revelations about our intelligence services spying on our daily activities, but it turns out that keeping tabs on ordinary citizens isn't just for the alphabet agencies. Good, old fashioned, local police departments can do it, too. And apparently some do, based on this ACLU legal filing against one local sheriff in Oklahoma, who took part in building and using an extensive database on citizens' activities that was likely illegal and was never shared with prosecutors or defense attorneys. The ACLU in Oklahoma sued Logan County…
  • What's So Bad About Making Money Off Fan Fiction?

    Jennifer Parsons
    23 Sep 2014 | 1:30 pm
    Sometimes I read a great fan fiction and think to myself, "Gee, I wish there was a Paypal button here somewhere, because I feel the overwhelming urge to ram wads of money down this writer's throat." This is basically impossible, of course; fanfic is considered an illegal derivative work under copyright law, and even the creators that allow it have a no-tolerance attitude towards fans who try to collect money for their work. If fans were allowed to earn money, conventional wisdom claims, it would siphon money away from the original creator and they would lose business. But what if…
  • ACLU Challenges Constitutionality Of Arizona's Revenge Porn Law

    Mike Masnick
    23 Sep 2014 | 12:27 pm
    Back in May we wrote about a problematic new anti-revenge porn law in Arizona. As we've been detailing for a while, revenge porn is a horrible thing, done by disgusting people, but we're quite reasonably worried about many of the legal attempts to "deal" with it, because they're often overly broad, or create other problematic consequences. The Arizona law was immensely troubling in that it appeared to punish First Amendment protected activities, and turning them into a "sexual offense" that was considered on par with domestic violence in the law. Even posting something for a journalistic…

  • Etymology is Everything

    19 Sep 2014 | 8:09 pm
    From Wikipedia: culture: the capacity to classify and encode human experiences symbolically, and to communicate symbolically encoded experiences socially This traditional definition of “culture” – not the only currently operative one, but one still prevalent in much discourse on practices in everyday life – is obviously problematic where the inclusion of nonhuman subjects (and human subjects incapable of sending messages or indicating their understanding of them) is presumed, or even merely contemplated. If one cannot signify, one might argue, one therefore cannot be…

    I’ve posted my thoughts on urban life and the micropolitics of getting around on my parenting blog, but for various reasons, I didn’t explain how philosophies of space and technology (in particular, Lefevbre and Peter-Paul Verbeek) inform my ideas on the subject. since this blog is more dissertation-oriented, I thought I’d drop a brief overview of these philosophies here. If you’ve read my rant on my other blog, and if you’ve encountered either of these thinkers at all (most parents and transit users I talk to haven’t), you might appreciate where I’m…

    21 Feb 2014 | 6:10 pm
    Looks like Voltage may obtain subscriber info in Canada from Teksavvy, but not without court oversight and privacy protections for people accused of infringement. Still, this was just a motion. The demand letters may roll out soon, but this litigation might prove to be unprofitable, given the tone and language of the judgement. This could play out in many different ways. I’ve long suspected that this case is merely a demo tape for a sweep of a much larger number of suspected infringing IP addresses assigned to the major ISPs. Time will tell if Canada proves at all to be a jurisdiction…

    Survived an important mental test. Since I’ve been teaching pretty much 3/4 time to full time* over the past 1.5 years, the dissertation gets sporadically updated and reconsidered. Well, there is a time limit on these things, and I’m currently at a half time teaching load. Despite how unpleasant I find this precarity (and there’s reason to suspect it might carry on beyond my graduation later this year), and without getting into the anguish of detail on this count, I’m looking on the bright side, which is that right now my time is freed up a bit for writing.

    26 Jan 2014 | 10:33 am
    It has been a learning experience moving my 8 domains (including this one) from a ~$10/month hosting service* to a home server built on the Raspberry Pi. Not counting the small amount of time in labour (possibly 8 hours of learning/testing/configuring things, as I am a novice Apache tinkerer**), I will see savings before 2014 is up. The annual cost of virtual hosting with a hosting company, with a decent Linux server, software installation, full on access to mod-rewrite, unlimited MySQL, etc is ~$135. The Raspberry Pi ($47 CDN) can’t do it out-of-the-box (you need to buy a power supply…

    23 Sep 2014 | 12:45 pm
    If you can turn on your computer, get up, brew a pot of coffee, and come back before your computer has booted up, you’re probably still running Windows 98. Please get a new computer. For most of us, the problem is less extreme. Still, even those with a four-year-old computer are losing valuable time—about 13 minutes per day waiting for the computer to boot up, load web pages, or play videos. Might not sound like a lot, but it shakes out to over three days per year. Everyday wear and tear breaks down components over time, and software continues to improve and become more complex in…

    The Samsung Gear Fit is a futuristic looking smartwatch that focuses on being a fitness band first and a smartwatch second. When it first appeared on the scene earlier this year, there was nothing on the market to compete with it, and there were a lot of “oohs and ahhs” coming from those checking it out. In fact, when it was first released, we even started to feel bad for some of the fitness tracking companies like Fitbit. After all, the curved 1.84” full color AMOLED display is super impressive.

The Flux Capacitor Car Charger was originally an April Fools’ Day joke earlier this year on ThinkGeek. Demand was (unsurprisingly) strong enough for ThinkGeek to make it reality.

But what sets it apart from other portable wireless speakers is the 1/4″ threaded mount that lets you use the Punk with third party bike mounts, helmet mounts, and the like. There’s also a line-out (and line-in) port, so you can daisy chain a few of these together, too. Battery life should be pretty good considering the size of the Punk, at eight hours.

    Caroline Prince

    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…

But that didn't last long because a few days ago, Debian restored GNOME as the default desktop, based on preliminary results from the Debian Desktop Requalification for Jessie.

They conclude: Despite my concerns, iOS 8 makes me feel excited for the future more than anything else. Apple's steps to open up more options for customization by developers and users on iOS marks a significant departure from their previous releases. It's not Android but it isn't meant to be.

As you can see in the video, application startup times are essentially the same between the two devices, and in both cases, applications open very quickly. This raises an interesting question, more so because of this article I read on The Verge today, about some guy who was very depressed about his brand new iPhone 6 Plus because he couldn't use it with one hand. Aside from two obvious points - one, you have two hands,…

I think I speak for all of us when I say - well, nice of them to do something Google+-related right for a change. In all seriousness - nobody asked for Google+, nobody wanted it, and virtually everyone hated it, and it does not solve any actual problem anyone had with Google products. It doesn't…

However, recently the app was beefed up a bit with some new edit features added that make it more compelling (and fun) to use.

Here’s a sample GIF created from a SlidShare presentation on Steve Jobs.

  • ARM's new processor could usher in feature-rich robots, appliances, wearables

    23 Sep 2014 | 5:17 pm
    ARM hopes its latest Cortex M7 processor design will lead to more responsive robots, smart appliances and wearables. The Cortex M7 CPU design, which will be licensed to chip makers, could also go into cars, medical devices and networking and storage devices. The faster and power-efficient M7 will allow device makers to pack more functionality and features into products, said Nandan Nayampally, vice president of marketing for the CPU group at ARM. For example, the Cortex M7, which operates at a clock speed of 400MHz, can bring finer control and accuracy in location and speed measurement to…
  • Hands-on with Pebble Firmware 2.5; iOS 8 users get better notifications

    23 Sep 2014 | 2:30 pm
    Pebble users are getting a few new goodies in Firmware 2.5, including a much better way to handle notifications on their smartwatches.Dealing with notifications on Pebble used to a hassle. If you had multiple notifications stacked up, you could only wade through them by repeatedly tapping the down button. This often required multiple taps to get through a single message, and if you dismissed a notification on the watch, it would still show up in the notification bar when you took out your phone.The latest firmware update eliminates these nuisances, at least for iOS 8 users. Now, each…
  • Talko looks like a solution to the problem that iOS 8's Messages has already solved

    23 Sep 2014 | 1:24 pm
    Oh dear. On Tuesday, software giant Ray Ozzie launched Talko, an app that promises to “save the telephone call”—and basically copies Apple’s iOS 8 Messages feature in the process.On the surface, Talko is a wonderful app. Think of it as Slack or HipChat or an AOL chat room, with group texting, the ability to record voice, share location, and even photos. Talko’s team wrapped it all up within Apple’s pristine iOS 8 design motif, sprinkled a bit of fairy dust on it, and unveiled it with broad smiles to a gullible tech press.Because that’s what you do when you have a Really Big…
  • BrandPost: How tech is reinventing customer support

    23 Sep 2014 | 12:28 pm
    Used to be, if you had trouble with a product, you called a toll-free number and waited on hold for an hour or two. This gave you time to hope and pray that you’d be connected to a customer support agent who knew what he was talking about. If things didn’t work out, you’d just have to call back. Times have changed. Driven by technology, the world of customer support is being wholly reinvented, and fast. Now, consumers have more options than ever when it comes to getting help with a product, and they’re demanding more of support agents, too. Here are five ways customer support is…
  • Images and details of Verizon's Droid Turbo leak

    23 Sep 2014 | 11:40 am
    Motorola is clearly not finished cranking out its angry robot line of Droid phones for Verizon. Photos of an alleged Droid Turbo hit the HellomotoHK Facebook page Tuesday, showing a phone with the familiar carbon weave and dark exterior the Droids are known for.  The device is rumored to support fast charging, much like the Moto X does when paired with an optional $40 charger. It looks to follow the Droid Maxx phones in offering a robust exterior and (hopefully) long battery life.To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here

    From recent consulting projects, I’m hearing from both IT and business users interested in OData production from on-premise business systems.  This “self service” need is in contrast to my last article on OData production using the Entity Framework for .NET developers.

  • Making Mobile Part of The Enterprise

    Jeff Reser
    4 Sep 2014 | 11:31 am
    Data in its most raw form starts as an infinite, formless river of facts and figures, but with increased mobile adoption, workers in the enterprise are demanding beautiful data that’s consistent with the user experience they’ve come to expect from their non-enterprise apps. While Excel has been the go-to tool to transform tables into charts and make sense of raw data – it’s main limitation is the freshness of the data. By the time it reaches the business users, the info is stale. With more workers spending time on their mobile devices, it only makes sense for the enterprise to be able…

    Today’s data-driven world is both a blessing and a curse for IT managers.

How do you keep your organization moving forward, but still keep things simple for IT?  With the emergence of open source database management systems like Apache Cassandra, data connectivity is evolving to meet requirements for speed and consistency — and returning some normalcy to IT managers.

    SEO agencies are often coming forth with ridiculous offers promising the world while delivering crap.I know from first hand experience in Germany. I’m not sure agencies in other countries get away with that level of over-promising too but here are some questions you need to ask before you sign that obligatory one year contract.Who is actually doing the work?The sales rep in the fancy suit from Armani or the well known SEO guru aka agency owner won’t be the one who does the work. In most cases it will be not only someone else but a person very low in the hierarchy of the company.

  • I went with this color laser printer

    Terry White
    22 Sep 2014 | 9:11 pm
    A few weeks ago I posted on my Facebook page asking for recommendations for a new printer. The requirement was that it had to be color and be ready to print when I’m ready to print. In other words I print very infrequently and my frustration with inkjet printers is that some models dry up when not used regularly and take lots of ink just to get the nozzles clean and printing again. My previous office printers had all been Xerox Phaser (dry ink) printers. While these printers have always served me well, it was going to be overkill to get another one as I just don’t print that often…

    Your smartphone probably came with a USB wall charger. Chances are you probably need or at least would find it convenient to have more than one. Perhaps one at your desk, one by the bed and maybe one in your travel bag. A quick check shows that the retail price of an Apple USB wall charger is $19. Of course you could get ANY 3rd party wall charger for half that price or less. However, even at $9 for a good quality generic charger you might want to consider a different option. If you’re buying a charger that’s going to have a permanent home under your desk, behind a nightstand,…

  • Revenue Questions

    Alex Goldfayn
    22 Sep 2014 | 5:41 am
    Are you making time for revenue growth? It’s a proactive pursuit. You cannot spend your days reacting to customers’ issues and significantly grow your organization. Are you behaving boldly? Because marketing it no place for modesty. You improve lives and companies. Act like it. Are you asking for testimonials and referrals regularly? These are among the best and easiest ways to grow sales. Are multiple people at your company consistently asking the “Did You Know” question? On average, customers are only aware of about 30 percent of all that they can buy from you.

    Alex Goldfayn

    Focusing on your products and services makes you one of a very large crowd. It commoditizes you. Focusing on your value, and the ways that you improve customers lifts you above the crowd. It makes you singular. It makes you money. These videos are based on my Growth Masters Annual Curriculum, a year-long learning program focused like a laser on growing your revenue!

If they were, we’d all be better off. Here’s what I wish they would teach us, and our children, in school:That the simplest solution is almost always the best one. In math and in…

    Here’s an “advanced” point that came out of a client workshop last week: when asking for a testimonial, don’t use the word “testimonial,” as it places unnecessary pressure on your customer. Instead, ask for feedback, thoughts, reactions, opinions, etc. “I’m wondering, how would you say you’ve improved since we’ve started working together? What, specifically, has become better?” Same goes for referrals: don’t use the word, which actually decreases the odds of you getting one! Instead, ask for who else your customer knows:…

The home is the perfect compromise for the couple and has been described as a “Connecticut compound in Malibu.” The home looks like it came right out of Kennedy Jr.’s home town of Hyannis Port, Massachusetts, but it is located where Hines has always called home. According to the Boston Herald, the home was sold by “eight-time Emmy winning composer David Kurtz,” who is best known for his 20 plus years working with the daytime soap operas The…

    Microsoft announced that you can now share negative keyword lists between campaigns in Bing Ads. You can do this with the Bing Ads Editor, the web interface, or the API. “Gone are the days of manually copying negative keywords between campaigns,” says Microsoft’s Anar Alimov. “With this release, you can create lists of negative keywords and apply them simultaneously to as many campaigns as you want. You can add up to 5,000 negative keywords per list, and create up to 20 lists per account.” “Associating a negative keyword list does not subtract from that…

    Reeva Steenkamp’s mother, June, is set to publish a book about the trial in which athlete Oscar Pistorius was found guilty of culpable homicide for the Valentine’s Day killing of the model. She is also speaking out about her feelings on the charges, for which he will be sentenced in October. June Steenkamp says she doesn’t feel the charge of culpable homicide–rather than first degree, which couldn’t be proven due to conflicting witness accounts–is the right one for the man who killed her daughter. “In my opinion it means that Oscar’s not going to pay…

  • Is Carrier Billing on the way for Airtel Users on Android?

    Arpit Verma
    22 Sep 2014 | 5:59 pm
    Plenty has been written, said and discussed about carrier billing and the prospects of the same in India. Indians are known to be wary when making payments online to purchase apps or utilities and as a result would much rather pick up a freebie or even download a pirated copy than complement the developer. As a result, a few years ago Nokia had come up with Carrier Billing, where users could pick things from nokia store and pay it via their carrier credit. This was a popular move all those years ago, but since then has been rolled back with Android and iOS numbers on the rise and their…

    Social Media rejection is perhaps the worst kind of rejection. We have all been privately rejected and not many of us like to own up to it or like to recite it. Yet, a social media rejection is so public that it is humiliating. We have all had that moment where we have just updated a status message or posted a picture and waited hours and hours on end for the first sight of interaction on it. Yet it always happens that none of it whatsoever comes by and you are left there, literally with an egg on your face thinking whether you would be better advised to simply delete the update and save…

    Smartphones today have become the hub of a lot of our personal data. Right from music to videos to pictures and countless documents, smartphones are nothing less than a locker, whose keys you cannot afford to lose. Given the recent iCloud security breach, one thing that has continuously been talked about is data encryption and how important that is. Obviously the data in iCloud is encrypted and the turn of events were unfortunate, but by default the data on your Android phone or any phone for that matter is not encrypted. However, Android phones with Android 4.2 and above do have the feature…

    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…

    When it comes to spacesuits, not much has changed in appearance since astronauts first began space exploration in the early sixties. So far, spacesuits look like bubbles in which the astronauts saddle in to make their way from one place to another; there have been efforts to improve spacesuits with the perspective of giving them greater mobility, but with little success. However, a cool new spacesuit is right around the MIT corner as scientists there have designed the next generation type that would essentially fit on the body like a second skin. The days of bulky, gas pressurized spacesuits…

Audi and Google have already stepped into the realm of autonomous vehicles, and finally Mercedes also goes driverless. The state of California has issued 29 permits to test drive such cars on public roads; recipients of these permits are Google, Audi and Mercedes. Makers of driverless cars did not previously require any permit to test drive these vehicles;…

The offer will only be valid for a limited time period i.e. till the end of September 2014; availing the offer would mean that the user will be able to use two times the space originally offered by OneDrive (30 GB instead of 15 GB).

One of the main features that I look for in an app when it connects to Google Calendars is whether or not you can join a hangout from an event within the app. With Sunrise Calendar, this is accomplished very easily by clicking on the “Join video call” under the Hangout heading at the bottom of the event view.

  • How Linking to Knowledge Could Boost News Media

    Frédéric Filloux
    14 Sep 2014 | 11:32 am
    A key way to differentiate value-added news from commodity contents is to rework the notion of linking. Thanks to semantics and APIs, we could move from dumb links to knowledge linking.  Most media organizations are still stuck in version 1.0 of linking. When they produce content, they assign tags and links to mostly internal other contents. This is done out of fear that readers would escape for good if doors were opened too wide. Assigning tags is not exact science: I recently spotted a story about the new pregnancy in the British Royal family; it was tagged “Demography”, as if…

    The Apple Watch isn’t just another iDevice, a “wearables” accessory to the Apple ecosystem. It’s a bold attempt to create a new kind of wrist-worn personal computer that looks like a smartwatch. In previous Monday Notes dealing with the putative iWatch and other “wearables”, I thought the new product would be a nice add-on to the iDevices ecosystem — a bit player that would make the iPhone more desirable —  but that it wouldn’t move the needle, meaning $10B or more in revenue. I reasoned that a watch battery would be too small to feed a computer powerful enough to offer a…

By every measure, the digital sphere grew explosively thanks to a combination of known factors: a massive influx of capital; the radical culture shift fostered by a “blank slate” approach; obsessive agility in search of new preys; flattened hierarchies; shrugged-off acceptance of failure; refocusing on the customer;  a keen sense of…

    Many users who’ve installed Windows 8 or Windows 8.1 have set up a Microsoft account that’s accessible through a web browser as well as through their local machine. In many cases, users of Windows 8.1 are selecting a connected account solely because they think there’s no other choice. In truth, going private with a local Windows account is a simple task anyone can complete in five minutes or less. Why Switch?

    Nowadays, healthcare cost is surging considerably in the United States. It is quite evident from the fact that most patients need to contribute a good amount of money towards their Medicare payments. While considering employees with health insurance coverage, many employers or insurers require that they cover a greater share of the total medical costs through increased co-payments and deductibles. These out-of pocket costs can be large especially for those patients with chronic medical conditions such as asthma that need regular and timely medical checkups. A new study reveals that low income…

  • How does Nomad determine network bandwidth and protect your network? Ping? Nope. Try Reverse QoS instead

    Troy Martin
    17 Sep 2014 | 3:36 am
    Network Ping, DiffServ, QoS or something special? There are lots of ways to calculate network bandwidth. A network ping can determine WAN speed but this is not ideal as many organizations disable ICMP for many security reasons. Windows firewall alone blocks a lot of ping traffic by default due to the inherent security issues that can be associated by it. DiffServ can give good Quality of Service (QoS) but requires hardware investment that can utilize this technology not to mention some solutions leveraging this technology only calculates QoS on edge routers. This may be okay for route…

  • Students on the Lookout – work from anywhere

    12 Sep 2014 | 2:10 am
    A few years ago, I was a student in higher education working towards my degree in Computer Science. I almost immediately found that the biggest issue I had was having to go to the university to find a computer to run my tests or to write documentation. I was developing in Turbo Pascal or C or, worse still, access to COBOL (yes, I’m showing my age). It didn’t take long before I was finding the cash to buy myself a home PC. My chosen weapon was a slimline 386 sx25 with a 40Mb HDD and 2Mb of RAM. This was around $2,000 and rather rapidly required both a larger HDD and RAM (6Mb RAM cost…

    Kate Hoagland

    Guest Post by Sarah Jensen from the Ask an Engineer series, published by MIT’s School of Engineering Photo: Evan Leeson When Jane Taylor wrote her poem “The Star” in 1806, she probably didn’t consult a psychrometric chart to determine the exact temperature at which dew forms on English lawns. Nonetheless, one version of her lullaby states that the little star twinkles only “When the blazing sun is set / And the grass with dew is wet.” Taylor was correct in suggesting that lower temps are necessary for dew to appear in the yard. The dew point is defined as the atmospheric…

Even in mid-2014, I spend a large amount of time teaching basic principles of enterprise architecture, and the need for adding form and structure to ICT strategies.

    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…

    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…

    Smartwatches are the rage and every manufacturer has either entered or is gearing up for this race. After Samsung & Sony failed to tap this trend with their first generation products (that ran their own software renditions), Google created Android Wear — a unified smartwatch OS. The Samsung Gear Live and the LG G watch were the first Android Wear devices. The Moto 360, after months of teasing, has finally hit the shelves.

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.

These came from competitors or even competing groups and you watched them come and go. Some were ingenious and you admired them for their design. Some were real stinkers.

  • How to Fix no Audio Issues with FaceTime Video on iPhone 6

    21 Sep 2014 | 9:16 am
    If you are making a FaceTime call on your brand new iPhone 6, and the other party is not able to hear you properly, it is quite likely that you have not taken the plastic wrap off the phone. The noise cancellation microphone between the camera and the flash is covered with the plastic wrap on a new iPhone 6. This causes the iPhone’s noise canceling algorithm to malfunction when you make a FaceTime call (or any call with the speakerphone on). In order to fix this issue, just take the plastic wrap off, or, if you don’t want to take it off until you get a case (totally understandable), use a…
  • Contract Free iPhone 6 is Factory Unlocked

    21 Sep 2014 | 8:56 am
    This year, Apple is selling a contract free iPhone 6 from day 1 of its launch in the US. This contract free iPhone comes bundled with a T mobile sim card which is creating a lot of confusion about whether the phone will be locked to the T mobile network. Apple support executives are further adding to the confusion by saying that only T mobile customer care can confirm this. And T mobile reps say that one has to get unlock codes from them to unlock the any phone on their network, however, they are not 100% sure about the iPhone 6. I bought a contract free T mobile iPhone 6 on launch day and…
  • This is the Apple Watch

    9 Sep 2014 | 7:25 pm
    In addition to launching the iPhone 6, Apple also introduced its brand new product line – the Apple Watch. The Apple watch is a wearable device which comes in 2 sizes – 38mm and 42mm. The crown, or as apple calls it – digital crown, is the new way of interacting with the watch without blocking the screen. The watch also offers a touch screen – so don’t worry, you are covered there. The touch screen is an advanced capacitive & resistive screen which can differentiate between a tap and a press.

  • The New Pinterest Analytics Is More Robust than Twitter’s

    Denae Olberding
    17 Sep 2014 | 1:23 pm
    Pinterest is sometimes viewed as the latecomer on the social media scene. By all rights the platform’s visual focus should have made it an overnight success story, but it often takes a back seat to Facebook, Twitter, and even smaller platforms like Tumblr. But Pinterest has proven itself a top performer for businesses that take the time to learn to use it well. Now Pinterest is making its network even more valuable to businesses, with the unveiling last week of an expanded and upgraded analytics feature. Like the similar unveil from Twitter two weeks ago, the move is clearly meant to…

  • 5-Star Rating Yanked by Yelp? Court Says It’s OK

    Dave Paul
    15 Sep 2014 | 12:12 pm
    How much would you pay for a 5-star rating on Yelp? How about to make those bad reviews go away? So far, Yelp hasn’t officially offered anything of the sort—but a court decision earlier this month says they can if they want to. Yelp was taken to court in California on allegations that it was “extorting” business owners by pressuring them to pay for good ratings. Yelp denies the allegation, but apparently it needn’t worry: the Ninth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals says that fixing ratings is fair play. That surprises many business owners. Yelp has become perhaps the biggest destination…
  • Google’s HTTPS Incentive Is Little Incentive At All

    Dave Paul
    5 Sep 2014 | 8:01 am
    Want to get more traffic for your website? How about investing in costly web encryption that you don’t actually need? That’s the proposition that Google put forward last month, when it announced an incentive for site owners to switch to HTTPS (hypertext transfer protocol secure). For the record, HTTPS is the more-secure form of the familiar HTTP, the protocol that transfers data over the web. Right now the majority of websites don’t use HTTPS because they don’t need it, but Google says it’s now using HTTPS as a signal in search ranking algorithms. In other words, make the switch and…
  • Google Authorship Comes to a Crashing Halt

    Dave Paul
    29 Aug 2014 | 12:54 pm
    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 of 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…

The video was filmed using the phone it advertises, a Lumia 930, known for its high-def camera (20 megapixels!).

  • Apple Bought A Company That Helps You Make iPad Magazines (AAPL)

    Sam Colt

    Apple has acquired Prss, a Dutch digital magazine startup, according to Tech Crunch's Darrell Etherington. Prss is a publishing platform for content creators who don't know how to code but want to create nice-looking magazines on the iPad. The platform launched in 2010 and even got a nod from Tim Cook in a 2012 WWDC keynote address. Apple doesn't usually comment on acquisitions, this one included. The company gave Tech Crunch a boilerplate statement on how it likes to play acquisitions close to the chest. It's also unclear how much Apple paid for Prss. The acquisition comes as Apple is trying…

    At long last, the mysterious — and often controversial — payments app Clinkle is finally live.  And it looks like it's a way different app than what it was first positioned to be.  "Our goal is to completely modernize how payments work," the app's founder, Lucas Duplan, told Business Insider last year. "What we're trying to do is basically take your phone and have it for the first time be able to rival cash and credit cards. We've developed a way for consumers to download an app, no hardware needed, and achieve scale from a software point of view." Instead, it now looks like…

    Happy birthday Malaysia!! Just how awesome is our country, that we celebrate an Independence Day AND a Malaysia Day, not to mention 2 New years day, (or 3 if you count Awal Muharram). So on that note, I decided to use my IT skills for the good of the country. To be honest, my IT skills have never been up to par, my day job is more managing/planning/documenting than actual execution of ‘real’ IT work. But it was good for me to dust of the ol’ programming fingers and learn Python to grab some publicly available information and make it more accessible to the less IT centric…
  • Is Malaysia’s Broadband slow–no it isn’t.

    Keith Rozario
    14 Sep 2014 | 8:31 am
    Recently KiniBiz did a piece on Malaysian broadband speeds, and once again the hoopla about how Malaysian broadband speeds are slow arose. Kinibiz quoted an article from Asean DNA which stated that the average broadband speed in Malaysia was just 5.5 Mbps, while Thailand, Vietnam and Singapore had speeds that were double that (or more!) The report however was inaccurate, and I think there’s a need to address the hoopla, because this happens often. There was a report couple months back that said Cambodia had faster speeds than Malaysia, and I wrote a post addressing that. This time I…
  • A Techie’s view on the Law

    Keith Rozario
    8 Sep 2014 | 7:30 am
    Are some laws worth following–in other words, are some Laws so idiotic that they should be ignored completely? That sounds anathema, because we have a romanticized definition of the law, we define the Law as a broad general agreement a society undertakes, and the law keeps society from tearing itself apart. In other words, the law is so sacred because without it–we descend into anarchy, so ignoring the law is akin to promoting anarchy. But I’m not speaking of “The Law”, I’m speaking of “A law”, specifically an Act of Parliament. “The…

    You all know how much I love nearlyfreespeech, it’s one of the best hosting providers out there. Here’s one more reason, recently they alerted me to a suspicious number of login attempts to my wordpress site, which usually means someone was trying to hack it. If you remember the post I did about the RHB bank scam, it’s quite common for hackers to inject pages onto a wordpress site to help them carry out banking scams. This was probably something similar. Fortunately, the guys over at nearlyfreespeech were not just kind enough to log the attempts and alert me, but even…

    Uber, a company that connect passengers with drivers of vehicles for hire and ridesharing services–is now banned in Malaysia. The Uber service was viewed as a god-send by citizens of KL simply because the existing taxi service in the city–is Shit! So why did the Government choose to ban a service, that was improving public transport in KL? For the small matter that it violated a couple of laws–no big deal really. Laws are made to be broken aren’t they? There’s no need to go into the details of whether Uber is legal or illegal, that’s an irrelevant point.

So how do you improve on an already outstanding product without taking the pricing to a new level?. One way was to add more features to the product. So Audioengine added a DAC…

But a new GPU cooler design for the AMD Radeon’s upcoming GPU- Radeon R9 390X- came at the time when Asetek released a press release, stating that it secured a design win with an undisclosed OEM customer- for a GPU liquid product.

Heck, it’s happening now—a lot of people aren’t even able to tell what can harm us as a society with the kind of sex-obsessed culture we are creating. We’re becoming more and more reckless, not considering the values we impart to the youth who will be left to run this world when the future comes. Is this what marketing has come to?

It was the best. Tim Ash, author of Landing Page Optimization, was rude, he was crude, and he gave a ton of quick tips to improve the audience’s landing pages that I will share in a forthcoming post. It was easily the most entertaining and helpful hour of the week. There were plenty of panel sessions that I attended at CM World 2014 where the presenters spoke in broad terms about themselves and gave the…

    By default, the My Documents folder is located in Windows XP and Windows Vista is located on the same drive or partition as the operating system. This is fine for anyone who has only a single drive or a single partition on their computers, such as the C drive, but if you have more than one physical or logical drive on your computer, it’s best to move your My Documents folder off the system drive. In Windows 7 and Windows 8.1, the situation is a bit different. In Windows 7, you have libraries, which are kind of virtual folders that basically link to other folders that can be located…

    A UK team at Loughborough University is proposing a new cab design for lorries that would offer drivers a better view of the road around them, thus potentially saving the lives of pedestrians and cyclists. According to the researchers, the redesign of the cab could offer a 50-percent increase in front and side field of view, compared to traditional cabs. ..

  • My Closest Friends Said I’d Never Make It as a Web Designer… Then I Did This!

    John Morris
    10 Sep 2014 | 9:07 am
    In this episode of the John Morris Show, I teach you how to use Elance and ODesk to build a successful freelance web design business. This 6-part strategy is what I used to prove all my friends and family wrong when they said I’d never make it as full-time web designer. And, to be blunt… if your freelance business is based 100% on sites like Elance and ODesk.. you’re being foolish. You could be working less and making more by implementing the 6 simple steps in this video. Over time, these steps will start to seem a bit “magical” because you’ll have new…
  • How to Avoid Clients From Hell BEFORE They Ever Hire You

    John Morris
    21 Aug 2014 | 4:26 pm
    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…
  • How to Get Your First Web Design Client (Step #2 is especially important)

    Getting your first PAID web design client is the most important action you can take for your coding career… whether you plan to be a freelance web designer long-term or not. 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. You get to see first-hand that people WILL pay you money to code for them and that you CAN deliver. On the flip side, NOT getting your first client leaves…
  • How to Position Yourself to Get More Freelance Jobs

    John Morris
    6 Aug 2014 | 6:28 am
    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…
  • Most Web Designers Don’t Do This… But It’s How I Get 99% of My Freelance Jobs

    John Morris
    31 Jul 2014 | 4:40 am
    Most freelancers and web designers immediately roll their eyes when I say the word, “branding”. Mostly because they’re thinking of big brand branding done by companies like Coke or McDonalds… that’s “not meant to actually make sales”. Yet, “branding” is how I get 99% of my clients. In fact, you’re here reading this right now because of the “branding” I do. So, if you can put aside all the mis-information you’ve probably heard about the word “branding”… Check out the video below and let me show you…

  • 3 Things You Shouldn’t Do with Solid-State Drives

    Vamsi Krishna
    23 Sep 2014 | 7:50 am
    When compared to the regular mechanical hard drives, Solid State Drives (SSDs) are pretty different and give you a performance boost in regards of boot time and application load time. SSDs work quite differently out of the box by employing NAND-based flash memory rather than using the moving mechanical parts like in the regular hard drives. Like any other electronic devices, SSDs also come with their own weaknesses (other than the heavy price tag) too. If you are using an SSD on your Windows machine, here are the three things that you have to take note of.1. Don’t Use Index Feature in…
  • How Does Public Key Encryption Work?

    Miguel Leiva-Gomez
    22 Sep 2014 | 4:25 pm
    For many, security remains a mystery that is better left to the professionals. It has been seen as too complex for the layperson to explore or fully understand. While diving into the math of some of the most complex algorithms can be a daunting task, the essence of what makes all of these algorithms work isn’t necessarily out of anyone’s reach. Instead of looking at the minute details of cryptography that most people find either boring or overwhelming, we can look at the concepts that make up public key encryption so that we may understand completely what exactly is protecting us…
  • How to Use Android Wear Part 1: Navigating the UI

    Bertel King, Jr.
    22 Sep 2014 | 2:25 pm
    Smartwatches don’t provide the screen space that smartphones do, so with its approach to the form factor, Google decided to create an experience that is fundamentally different. Android Wear devices are designed to supplement smartphone usage, not replace it. This means you won’t be able to do most of the things on your watch that they can do on your phone. This also means you can’t interact with it the same way either. Android Wear’s UI is an entirely different beast from regular Android, so here’s a primer on how to navigate your way around it.1.

Those people looking for proof to come from any research in science will be sadly disappointed. As an astrophysicist, I live and breathe science.

But one word is rarely spoken or printed in science and that word is “proof”. In fact, science has little to do with…

    Android and Apple looking to expand into new markets in India and China. Flickr/Aidan, CC BYHas Google finally decided to take total control of its Android destiny with the release of its Android One operating system? Aimed at “emerging markets”, such as India, Google will operate the smartphone device rather than handing over to hardware partners such as Samsung and HTC. Historically, Google has taken a hands-off approach to Android, providing it “free” to manufacturers as an open source product. Samsung and HTC smartphones use their own versions of Google’s Android OS.

The equinox is a midpoint. It’s around now that day and night become equal in length (but more about that later). It’s also around the equinox that the sun does what we think it always does - it rises due east and sets due west. And at the equinox the sun’s path sits mid-way between the extremes of summer and winter, as marked by the solstices. A moment in time But the equinox itself is a specific…

Sure, him making-out with his mom in the car was a little weird, but the protagonist was undoubtedly awesome. While there are many memorable moments from the movie, one thing tends to resonate with movie-goers the most -- the Flux Capacitor. This cheesy-looking box was the technology behind time-travel, but most importantly, it looked super-cool (nerds and geeks love flashing lights). Today, ThinkGeek announces a…

Still, writers would pay thousands of dollars for this option if they were not able to find a publishing company.

    21 Sep 2014 | 4:43 pm
    Read an article the other day in Wired, A system to cut traffic that just might work, about two MIT students doing research to help Singapore better manage traffic congestion. They have come up with a sort of token ring network for traffic. In their approach every car when it enters a “congestion zone” is suppplied an electronic token and when that car leaves the zone it retires it’s token (sound familiar). When the zone is too congested, no new tokens are handed out and cars are re-routed around the zone using GPS provided directions. It seems a bit hokey but using tokens…

    There are many ingredients that go into building a company: hard work, emotional fortitude, agility, willingness to take risks, fanatical commitment to driving customer value, ability to execute in the face of ambiguity, and more. But there is one ingredient that often gets overlooked: an ability to will something to happen. If entrepreneurship is the creation of something from nothing, that process starts with a belief the something can be made to happen. What is often started by the willpower of a single individual, can only expand by surrounding yourself with committed and like-minded…

But unlike everyone else in Boston, I wasn’t looking for a list of names to call. Instead I wanted to get a sense of the talent density at this company. Talent density works like this: high quality engineers prefer to work with other high quality engineers. The result is that good engineers typically be found in clusters. This is true for the companies for which they…

I also appreciate their near maniacal focus on the customer, their organizational productivity at scale, the commitment to being a technology company, and their willingness to take risks. But they did something even better that will forever endear me to them: they eliminated my need to ever touch physical server and storage infrastructure again. ;) But there is one side of Amazon for which I’m not a fan: their secretive side.

This is a change from a decade ago, when I was convinced a key component to success was knowing the competitive market as well as I knew my own product. I used to spend hours at SilverBack analyzing a competitor’s website, talking to their current and former customers, and sitting through demos. But over the last decade I stopped focusing on competitors for two simple reason: It distracted…

I also have blogging on the mind in general after reading Jason Kincaid’s new book today. Here’s my short answer – A great tech blogger needs to be exceptionally good at (1) breaking big stories, (2) writing powerful thought pieces, and (3) doing live interviews.

And that means she’s a competitor to the sites that regularly call out sexism, subtle or overt, that pops up in our industry. So she goes without defense. Not only does she go without defense from her peers in the industry, it’s actually one of her peers calling her stupid. Which is fine, she’s very tough. But if you see her today, let her know how much you respect her. She won’t show it, but…

    Apple has a very large problem right now. I’m not talking about legal liability over the nude celebrity photos and videos being posted all over the internet right now (dubbed “The Fappening”), although I think that’s also an issue.

    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…
