    Knowing full well that its viewership wouldn't be very high during the boxing match between Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao, Saturday Night Live decided to admit defeat and air a "pirated stream" of the fight. Enter Jay Pharoah and Aidy Bryant as Mayweather and Pacquiao, respectively. See also: Mayweather vs. Pacquiao: The fight in photos The sketch quickly fell apart — although that seemed to be the point — as Kenan Thompson and Pharoah "left to watch the match in Wiz Khalifa's dressing room."

    As if on cue, the two dogs tied up day and night to a wooden pole behind their owner’s hut begin to bark as the sun appears on the horizon. Soon after, the roosters and the pigs join the chorus, begging to be fed, and the faint calls of the mangrove swallows can be heard, too, as they fly back and forth between the island of Ustupu and the mainland, a half mile awayWith that, the new day begins just like it does every day on this island, the most populated of Guna Yala — an archipelago that’s also known as Kuna Yala, or San Blas — in Eastern Panama.

    Five Years Ago This week in 2010, the world was abuzz over the prototype iPhone that was left in a bar, and we discussed the legal fallout and its implications for bloggers-as-journalists. At the same time, another case found that a blog commenters was not a journalist. In the old-school journalism world, Rupert Murdoch was moving towards paywalls while his competitors were proudly promising to remain free, and the New York Times was struggling to find reasons to like its paywall. Lots happened on the copyright front this week. A historical association claimed copyright over scans of…
  • Awesome Stuff: The Modular Smartphone... Case

    Leigh Beadon
    2 May 2015 | 9:00 am
    Not too long ago, people got pretty excited about the idea of a "modular smartphone", and recently Google announced that it would be launching its attempt at such a device in Puerto Rico this year. The idea has also sparked a lot of debate, with some saying the sacrifice of size and/or power needed to create something modular would be too great. But there's one idea I don't recall anyone bringing up at the time: moving the whole modular concept off of the phone and onto a phone case. This week, we're looking at the nexpaq, which does just that: The Good There's something very appealing about…
  • Patent Reform Bill A Good Step, But Still Falls Way Short Of Fixing A Broken System

    Mike Masnick
    1 May 2015 | 7:39 pm
    As was widely expected, earlier this week, a bunch of high-profile Senators introduced a big patent reform bill, known as the Protecting American Talent and Entrepreneurship (PATENT) Act. It's backed by Senators Chuck Grassley, Patrick Leahy, Chuck Schumer and John Cornyn, and has a decent chance of becoming law. From a quick look at the bill itself, it looks an awful lot like what we expected to show up last year, right before Senator Harry Reid stepped in and killed the bill. With the Republicans taking over in Congress, however, Reid no longer has the power to do that. Meanwhile, Schumer,…

  • DailyDirt: Drink No Wine Before It's Time?

    Michael Ho
    1 May 2015 | 5:00 pm
    Some folks are really into aged spirits -- as in old alcohol, not ancient ghosts. But if we can't really trust our tastebuds, will anyone really know if an aged wine is really aged? More importantly, though, does it really matter if no one can taste the difference between a day-old beverage and one that's 15 years old? Maybe some wine/scotch snobs will care, but most drinkers probably won't. Chemistry can make a 6-day old rum taste like one that is 20 years old. The method is patented, but knockoffs are springing up -- and presumably, almost "anyone can do it" (well, if anyone really wants to…

The affected units won't boot up, and the only thing they will do is flash the Apple logo while charging. Apple is on it, and is replacing these asap though a call to Apple Tech Support.

  • Leona Divide 50k 2015 Race Report – DNF

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

    24 Feb 2015 | 8:24 am
    Last year I signed up for the Bandit Ultra Trail Race 30k and the days leading up to the race I got sicker and sicker. The day before the race I thought I could pull it off even though I had massive body aches and felt like death warmed over. I picked up my bib and shirt but by the time I got home I was a wreck and had to DNS the race. This year I went back to the Bandit a week after running the Sean O’ Brien Marathon but went to volunteer. If you were in the race, I was one of the guys along with JK who helped steer 50k, 30k and 15k runners around the first loop then onto the first…
  • Sean O’Brien 50 50 100 Marathon Race Report 2015

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

    Over the past year I’ve run over 800 miles and raced three half marathons, three challenging trail races over 11 miles long and in several 5ks. I also dedicated a lot of training time to increasing my climbing and logged over 24,000 feet in elevation gain. I trained on several mountain ranges in Southern California and feel like I can knock out a half marathon run at any time, so I did. It’s been a couple of weeks since running the Santa To The Sea Half Marathon in Oxnard on Dec. 18. I was excited to tackle the course and try to set a PR for the half. The flat as a pancake course…

But that left me with two months without races and I got impatient. I was looking through my timeline on the Strava site when I saw that tri-athlete Anthony Grey was in his last weeks of training for the Surfer’s Point Full Marathon. After that I signed up for the half marathon or the race to be held on Nov. 16, 2014. One of the features of the race is that when you cross the finish line you get a nice beer and some real tacos. Who can say no to tacos?

Alas, old habits die hard, and the joint French/Chinese venture just circled back to its humble US beginnings, taking the wraps off yet another mediocre… Continue reading Underwhelming LTE-capable Alcatel Pop Astro sees daylight at T-Mobile Related posts: Pre-orders for Alcatel’s ‘reversible’ Idol 3 will begin April 21 at $250…

    Life’s good in LG’s mobile camp at last, thanks to booming sales of the three G-series flagship smartphones thus far. Of course, the G2 and G3 architects still can’t hold a candle to their domestic arch-rivals over at Samsung in sheer profitability, but several healthy consecutive financial quarters spell enduring prosperity. Year-on-year, smartphone shipments grew an impressive 26 percent in the first three months of 2015, reaching a tally of 15.4 million… Continue reading LG eyes 12 million G4 unit sales after posting 15.4M Q1 shipments in total Related posts: Samsung Galaxy S5…

  • Gadget Ogling: Wine in a Dash, Connected Bicycles, and a Wearable for Behinds

    Kris Holt
    2 May 2015 | 5:00 am
    I'll admit I'm not the planet's most refined wine connoisseur, but I do enjoy a glass or two of red with my dinner. Right now, I have a few bottles that are vacuuming up space in my kitchen, so I could use a wall-mounted wine rack -- but what's the use of having an empty rack once they're gone? Poppy Reserve -- just a concept at present -- could solve the problem of a barren wine rack by tapping into Amazon's Dash technology. It would track the level of wine in a given bottle and then ask Amazon to ship more when the supply's running low.
  • Elon Musk Unveils Tesla's World-Changing Powerwall

    1 May 2015 | 12:06 pm
    Tesla Motors CEO Elon Musk on Thursday announced the company's plan to develop residential and business battery systems, including the Powerwall Home Battery and business-oriented Powerpack. These systems are being developed to work in conjunction with solar panels to store energy for use at a later time. They also can draw power from the grid when demand for electricity is low and discharge it during the more expensive rate periods, when demand is higher. Musk suggested it could substantially reduce energy dependence on fossil fuels.
  • Steer Clear of iOS 8's Infinite Loop

    Richard Adhikari
    1 May 2015 | 5:00 am
    A flaw in iOS 8 allows hackers essentially to crash apps that perform SSL communications whenever they like. Skycure reported the bug at the RSA security conference held last week, advising owners of iOS devices to upgrade to iOS 8.3. Apple this week confirmed that iOS 8.3 addresses the vulnerability, according to Skycure. An attack would involve specially crafting an SSL certificate to regenerate a bug. SSL is used in almost all apps in the iTunes App Store, which means pretty much every device user running iOS 8 could be at risk.

    With password tolerance levels at an all time low, alternatives to the pesky and insecure authenticators are beginning to abound. One of those alternatives could be the Apple Watch. Even before Apple's latest gadget began shipping last week, MicroStrategy announced it was extending its Usher enterprise security solution to the Apple Watch. Usher, launched earlier this year, lets an enterprise use smartphones to authenticate its users and eschew user names, passwords and tokens.

    3 May 2015 | 4:32 am
    Baseball's most compelling video game is not offered in any store. Exactly how many people are playing is unclear. When it comes to the sticker price, no one wants to talk about it. With runs at a premium in the major leagues, a handful of teams are trying to help their young hitters with a high-tech program known as neuroscouting. The details are being treated as a state secret by three clubs believed to be using the product -- the Cubs, Red Sox and Rays. But it involves helping players with pitch recognition in an era when 95 mph fastballs, big curveballs and wicked sliders are more…

    The slow slog through thin air atop a glacier-capped Himalayan peak is about the farthest you can get from Silicon Valley's fast-paced tech world, where digital screens are often the only view and the instruments for survival are lines of code. And yet there is a small but determined band of tech workers who oscillate between the two worlds, spending one month hunched over computers and the next strapping on crampons and gaiters for a 20,000-foot ascent.

  • LinkedIn Projections Underwhelm Wall Street

    2 May 2015 | 5:34 am
    Executives with LinkedIn offered an upbeat assessment of the company's first quarter performance on Thursday, but both analysts and the market were unimpressed. Shares in the company, which had been trading as high as $265 a little over a week ago, closed Friday at just over $205. Predictions for the stock's performance over the coming year, which had included estimates in the low $300s, were slashed about $250. The disappointment stemmed not so much from LinkedIn's performance in the first quarter, which overall was about what the company predicted, but instead from the fact that company has…

    Richard Sung Kang's American dream came crashing down in a shower of broken glass. His West Baltimore liquor store and bar, the Oxford Tavern, was hit by looters during a riot over the police-involved death of neighborhood resident Freddie Gray. The business wasn't torched like the nearby CVS pharmacy, but its doors and windows were broken and cash and inventory stolen, leaving shelves bare. Now the 49-year-old South Korean immigrant must decide whether to reopen. If so, it could mean taking on more debt and paying higher insurance premiums. "I don't know yet," said Kang, looking dejected and…

    Bill Brenner
    21 Apr 2015 | 9:06 am
    Some folks in the security industry see me as a member of the “Equal Respect” movement against so-called booth babes at conferences. Not exactly. I certainly respect the opinion of people attached to the cause, and good for them, fighting for what they believe in. But for me, this has never been about equal respect among the genders. It’s never been about whether women who work as booth babes are being exploited sexually. For me, it’s been about holding vendors’ feet to the fire and making them work harder to build an exhibit off the strength of the products. To…

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

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

    Robots aren’t just being used on dry land to carry out various tasks. The Nakashima Laboratory at the Tokyo Institute of Technology has developed the world’s first swimming robot, nicknamed the Swumanoid. In this case, the robot is actuated by 20 motors and uses all four limbs to get across the body of water (albeit quite slowly). What it clearly demonstrates is just how complex learning to swim really is – that even with 20 motors the technique is still a long way from the standard you would expect from an adult swimmer given a few hours of tuition (just look at how wide…

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

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

    6 Mar 2015 | 9:48 pm
    Toshiba presented a new STT-MRAM 1-Mb test chip that provides speed performance capable of 3.3-ns access to in-cache memory. The newly developed circuit consumes about 80% less power compared to a conventional SRAM as embedded memory - and Toshiba says that this makes it the best power-performing embedded memory. To make this chip, Toshiba developed a new class of magnetic materials, that enabled them to build this low-power, high-efficiency, high-speed performance in energy-efficient magnetic tunnel junction (MTJ) memory. The circuit was designed for sub-100-ns high-speed power shutoff and…

  • I wish 10. Cats at Indian Traffic Signals

    Anupam Varghese
    20 Apr 2015 | 12:12 pm
    I wish we have traffic signals where cut-out cats pop-up on the road. No more plain red lights. Let me explain.To anyone who has travelled on Indian roads, this should be pretty obvious; to others, it might sound fatally amusing. One thing that vehicle drivers in India seem inherently incapable of doing is stopping before the white lines drawn at traffic signals (that is if they decide to stop in the first place).Thankfully, there is ONE thing that can stop almost all of them: cats. A cat crossing ones path is considered inauspicious (to put it mildly) and Indians would do anything to avoid…

    Past slow streams, and paddy plains,A gentle breeze, the drizzling rain, A blue-bird tries catch-up in vain,To a soulful beat, my rocking trainBack ten years, my numb mind panes, A time that sure no more remains,Had no money and had no pains,Nor plans beyond the morrow made,When music was the sole refrain, And dreams my waiting soul had gained,To love, I was not yet ordained,Just longings that were best contained,In the sleepy city, along the drain,My good 'ol car, on a narrow lane,Driving with the rolled down panes,Humming a tune the radio made,Next to me, the guitar he played,My fingers…

    You’ve drawn up and refined your message, crafted your slides, rehearsed, posted it on, and you’re a week out from presenting on your favorite webinar platform.    But how do you make sure your audience shows up? And once it’s over, what are you going to do with that time investment? First, your audience, like your teenage son, needs to be reminded of their commitment. Make sure that you select a webinar platform with an automated reminder system. Ideally, it would have the ability to send an email upon registration, a day before the event, an hour before the…

  • How do I resize a batch of images on my Mac?

    Owen Cutajar
    16 Apr 2015 | 4:04 am
    I have a number of photos that I’d like to resize so they’re a bit smaller before I upload to my website. Do I need a Photoshop on my Mac to do this or is there an easier way? You can easily batch resize groups of images within Mac OS X by using the included Preview app, that is, taking a group of pictures set at one or various resolutions, and collectively resize them all together in a group to a new resolution, outputting either as the same file or as a new file saved at the newly desired resolution. Long ago you had to buy expensive third party software for this purpose, but no…

    I have an old Mac I’d like to install Mavericks on but I seem to have lost the admin password. How can I do this? Believe it or not, you don’t really need to be an admin to upgrade your Mac OS. However, you do need to boot right into the installer rather than try and launch it from your desktop. You might need a machine you DO have admin access to to create the bootable media, but that’s really all you need. Here’s what you need to do: Before being able to create a bootable OS X installer, you’ll need to do the following first: Use the Mac App Store to download…
  • How do I set up a webcam at home to monitor while I’m out?

    23 Feb 2014 | 1:22 pm
    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.

    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…

    On April 21, the online world braced itself for what has been coined “Mobilegeddon.” It’s the latest in a series of major Google overhauls that affect businesses which appear on the site’s search results. This particular shake-up is a change to Google’s algorithm that favors sites which are deemed “mobile-friendly.” Alternatively, this means that sites which offer difficult views on smartphones can be demoted to a lower position in Google search results. Whenever Google makes a change to its algorithm, traffic to Web sites are affected. According to comScore Media Metrix, Google…

    When you are conducting a move out inspection, being able to fully document everything is vital not only for your protection, but for your tenant as well. This means having a property inspection app which can document, store and retrieve valuable information that can be extremely helpful. It will help you ascertain any damage that needs to be addressed as well as how much of the security deposit that you will have to withhold. The benefits begin with being able to look at photographs taken before the tenant moved onto the property. You can compare them with images taken during the move out…

  • Bootstrap 3 quick fix for older Firefox versions
    29 Jun 2014 | 12:39 pm
    I recently worked on a site and used Bootstrap v3 as the framework for my grid system. As I got far into the project, the requirement for Firefox versions crept downward to version 27. My carefully constructed columns started to crumble in this version of Firefox. After a little research, it turned out that the CSS box-sizing rule for Bootstrap had dropped the ‘-moz’ prefixes. Here’s what Bootstrap had in it: * { box-sizing: border-box; } *:before, *:after { box-sizing: border-box; } To add support for the older Firefox builds, I left the official Bootstrap file alone but…
  • Bookmarklet for logging into Beats Music

    I really enjoy Beats Music but since they have a 3 device limit, I am logged out of the app on my computer regularly. I also have Beats set up in a Fluid stand-alone app on my machine. The reason I did this is because it keeps my music playing even if I happen to restart my web browser. I can also put the Beats app I created in my doc for easy access. Unfortunately this means the app doesn’t integrate into my password storage app. This means I would have to log into it in a separate window, copy my password and paste it into the Fluid Beats app to start music.

To increase Europe’s competitiveness in the global economy we need to embrace innovation – embrace the future – and invest in the education of the next generation of workers.

    There was no way Microsoft could stick with Project Spartan as the name for its newfangled Windows 10 web browser. After all, there are just too many darned things already named Spartan or Spartans, from the Michigan State University nickname to those Spartan obstacle course races. And Microsoft certainly doesn't want people equating its next-generation browser with getting through one of those insane and often painful races.So the official name for the new browser, unveiled Wednesday, is Edge. Because that's unique.To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here

    This week's unveiling of Google's Project Fi, the search-messaging-phone-collaboration-broadband company's effort to shake up the wireless market in order to encourage people to use more of its services, has generated widespread reaction even though relatively few people will be eligible to use the service out of the gate.The general consensus seems to be that Google's latest experiment isn't revolutionary (for example, "Meh: Google launches disappointing Project Fi MVNO"). No, it isn't the first mobile virtual network operator (MVNO) to let you pay only for the data you use or bop between…

The decision is a disappointment to the small but incredibly vocal army of Media Center enthusiasts, who had held out hope that a Windows 10 Media Center add-on, similar to the one offered for Windows 8, might appear at the last minute.

With the leak earlier this week and the timing of the Surface Pro 3 on May 20th of last year, it's pretty much a slam dunk surety that the Surface Pro 4 will be introduced within the next two weeks. If Microsoft holds to a year-to-year schedule for this release, the event will take place on May 20th, 2015. That's just a couple of weeks from now and plenty of time for Microsoft to make room between developer-aimed announcements at BUILD and…

The drive doesn't run on Dilithium Crystals or anything as exotic as Star Trek's warp propulsion systems, it's just a hopped-up electromagnetic drive that will be powered by a on-board nuclear reactor on steroids. The science behind the EM drive is, well, complicated to say the least, but the basic idea is to convert electrical energy into thrust without propellant (the fuel in rockets),…

    Windows 7 is still the reigning champ of all operating systems for the 14th month in a row. In what has to be an embarrassment to Microsoft, Windows XP is still in the number two position, followed meekly by Windows 8.1, at a dismal third. Only time will tell if 7 will be able to maintain its title as everyone's favorite OS by the time 10 comes along, but if early adoption numbers are any indication, the two could be deep in competition for the years to come.

  • Ycombinator - Where unicorns are born

    6 Apr 2015 | 8:33 am
    Angel investing in tech startups is a gut wrenching and risky business. It sometimes feels like buying $25,000 lottery tickets. Most of them lose, but sometimes you invest in a “unicorn” and make 100 times your money or even more. The MIT Blackjack team figured out how to beat the odds in Las Vegas. Paul Graham from Harvard and Robert Morris from MIT teamed up with Trevor Blackwell and Jessica Livingston to found Ycombinator, and in the process figured out how to beat the odds in tech investing. Ycombinator is the largest and most successful startup incubator in history, and it was…
  • My 5 predictions for 2015 and beyond

    1 Jan 2015 | 7:49 am
    My 5 predictions for the tech world in 2015 and the next 5 years; Sensors, Indoor Location, Alternative networks, Wearable computers, the demise of cable TV. Billions of sensors will monitor everything, and become the next platform shift in computing. Your home, car, office, and even people will have special sensors that help us manage the complexities of life. Indoor Location and Positioning, enabled by Smartphones, will become a part of many existing apps, and enable new services. Think about how web maps started as a standalone application and were later embedded into all sorts of web…
  • Indoor Location startups innovating Indoor Positioning

    19 Jun 2013 | 11:26 am
    Indoor Location and Positioning technology is the Next Big Thing. It is bringing the power of GPS and Maps indoors. We spend most of our time indoors, working, shopping, eating, at the mall, at the office, on campus, etc. Apple and Google are competing on street maps, but are also working on Indoor Location. Lots of startups are going after this market too. In this post I will mention all that I am aware of. One or two winners, and a hundred broken hearts - Most web or social app markets are dominated by one or two big early players due to “First Mover Advantage” or network effects and…

Who are the big players? Indoor Location will be a huge market, bigger than Maps or GPS. Many big companies have…
  • Why Indoor Location will be bigger than GPS or Maps, and how it works

    2 Apr 2013 | 8:07 am
    Indoor Location and Positioning will be huge! Apple recently acquired WifiSlam for its indoor mapping and positioning technology. Why? Because we spend most of our time indoors, working, shopping, eating, at the mall, at the office, on campus, etc.  Google already has Indoor Maps for many airports and shopping malls. The race is on. The explosion of Smartphones with built in sensors, accelerometer, gyro, wifi radios, and camera make indoor positioning possible.  GPS and Maps are great, but they only work outdoors and with clear line of sight to the sky. GPS was developed by the US…

    Xiaomi’s newly launched Mi 4i sold out within seconds of its first sale on Flipkart today. Reports suggest that 40000 units were put on sale. The Mi 4i was launched in India at an event in New Delhi last week. Xiaomi also invited Mi fans to be a part of it. The phone is a toned down version of the Mi4.

The device runs on a Snapdragon 615 chip and is packed with 2GB of RAM. Besides the YU Yureka by Micromax, this is the only other device…

At the same time, another case found that a blog commenters was not a journalist.

  • Awesome Stuff: The Modular Smartphone... Case

    Leigh Beadon
    2 May 2015 | 9:00 am
    Not too long ago, people got pretty excited about the idea of a "modular smartphone", and recently Google announced that it would be launching its attempt at such a device in Puerto Rico this year. The idea has also sparked a lot of debate, with some saying the sacrifice of size and/or power needed to create something modular would be too great. But there's one idea I don't recall anyone bringing up at the time: moving the whole modular concept off of the phone and onto a phone case. This week, we're looking at the nexpaq, which does just that: The Good There's something very appealing about…
  • Patent Reform Bill A Good Step, But Still Falls Way Short Of Fixing A Broken System

    Mike Masnick
    1 May 2015 | 7:39 pm
    As was widely expected, earlier this week, a bunch of high-profile Senators introduced a big patent reform bill, known as the Protecting American Talent and Entrepreneurship (PATENT) Act. It's backed by Senators Chuck Grassley, Patrick Leahy, Chuck Schumer and John Cornyn, and has a decent chance of becoming law. From a quick look at the bill itself, it looks an awful lot like what we expected to show up last year, right before Senator Harry Reid stepped in and killed the bill. With the Republicans taking over in Congress, however, Reid no longer has the power to do that. Meanwhile, Schumer,…

    MuckRock has obtained a whole stack of Stingray-related documents from the FBI. As is to be expected, there's not much left unsaid by the agency, which is at least as protective of its own Stingray secrecy as it is with that of law enforcement agencies all over the US.

  • DailyDirt: Drink No Wine Before It's Time?

    Michael Ho
    1 May 2015 | 5:00 pm
    Some folks are really into aged spirits -- as in old alcohol, not ancient ghosts. But if we can't really trust our tastebuds, will anyone really know if an aged wine is really aged? More importantly, though, does it really matter if no one can taste the difference between a day-old beverage and one that's 15 years old? Maybe some wine/scotch snobs will care, but most drinkers probably won't. Chemistry can make a 6-day old rum taste like one that is 20 years old. The method is patented, but knockoffs are springing up -- and presumably, almost "anyone can do it" (well, if anyone really wants to…

    I think I was tweeting a lot last week about how tiring it is to be an actor. I was literally exhausted and became sick with a 102.5F fever after the two and a half days of intensive filming we did putting together the above shorts for Chaotic Moon’s sponsorship of The Moontower Comedy Festival, which is happening today through the 25th right here in Austin, Texas. If you go to the show, you’ll see some of these between the acts. If you’re there Friday night, hopefully I’ll see you there!

Here’s a quick series of patterns I slammed together into a track on it: I’ve been trying to get it to play nicely with my Kaossilator 2, but they don’t sync, so it’s all upon my impeccable timing to get them totally aligned, which is a little difficult. In addition to this little bit of tinkering fun, a few weeks back, some coworkers and myself rented out some studio space and jammed for 3 hours. It was so much…

  • Microsoft's Objective-C tech started on BlackBerryOS, Tizen

    2 May 2015 | 2:49 pm
    Steven Troughton-Smith has been looking into the how and what behind Microsoft's ability to compile Objective-C code for Windows 10, and the history of it all is interesting. It turns out that Microsoft's current implementation was initially developed by a company called Inception Mobile for BlackBerryOS 10. It took iOS Objective-C and converted as much as possible to Java or C++, hooking into the native platform APIs. It still works similarly on Windows 10. After trying to woo BlackBerry, Inception Mobile tried to shop it around to Samsung for its Tizen platform. The audio file of the…

  • 'My Apple Watch after 5 days'

    1 May 2015 | 3:16 am
    The positives far outweigh the negatives for me personally. The audio could be louder and the price more accessible for those with sensory impairment and reliant on the sort of accessibility features Apple offer. I am now very happy to own an Apple Watch and look forward to making it work well for me. Molly Watt has Usher Syndrome, a rare genetic disorder that causes deafblindness. Her first few days with the Apple Watch are probably unlike that of any other reviewer, considering her situation. Quite insightful.
  • Truecraft: an open-source implementation of Minecraft Beta 1.7.3

    1 May 2015 | 3:02 am
    A completely clean-room implementation of Minecraft beta 1.7.3 (circa September 2011). No decompiled code has been used in the development of this software. I miss the old days of Minecraft, when it was a simple game. It was nearly perfect. Most of what Mojang has added since beta 1.7.3 is fluff, life support for a game that was “done” years ago. This is my attempt to get back to the original spirit of Minecraft, before there were things like the End, or all-in-one redstone devices, or village gift shops. A simple sandbox where you can build and explore and fight with your friends.

    1 May 2015 | 1:41 pm
    Sony’s had a mixed year of PlayStation software launches.

The "Ascend" name has been dropped in favour of the cleaner Huawei P8 moniker, which tidies up its previously […]

    It’s hard to believe that it’s almost been a year since Microsoft launched the Surface Pro 3.

  • Boring Events Like the NFL Draft Work Because of Twitter

    Rex Hammock
    2 May 2015 | 7:05 am
    Watching the NFL draft on TV is ridiculously boring, despite everything the NFL and ESPN do to focus on back-stories (dipping into ABC’s creation of the “up close and personal” documentary approach to turn sports like curling into emotional personal stories of victory over adversity), punditry and more big data than the NSA collects on the leaders of foreign governments. However, Twitter can turn boring events into an entertaining event fueled by back-channel quips, snark, insight and, my favorite, “irrational hate.” When you add in Twitter and follow a few…

    Last September 4, I wrote a Hammock Idea Email called, “Learn the Secret to Apple’s Product Launch Magic.” It referred to the movie, The Prestige, and broke down how Apple would be introducing what we now know is the Apple Watch into the three parts of a magic trick, as described by the film’s character played by Michael Caine: (1) The Pledge, (2) The Turn and (3) The Prestige. In it, I wrote that Apple always ends the launch of a new product with the same “prestige.” “While the audience is focused on how the new iProduct will measure their health vitals,…

    Was it just you or did the ground really shake? Your iPhone, iPad and most newer mobile phones can work as basic seismometers, the same instrument that is used to measure the magnitude of earthquakes and volcanoes. You don’t need to install any apps, just the built-in web browser would suffice. OK, try this. Launch Google Chrome or the Safari browser on your mobile phone (or tablet) and then open this page. You should see a continuously moving waveform but if you slightly shake or tilt your mobile device,  simulating seismic activity, the graph will capture these movements in…

Once you enable two-factor authentication, a malicious person will not be able to log into your online account even if they know the password – they’ll need access to your mobile phone as well to get in.

Even earlier than banking, the popular “pump-your-own-gas” model was in play, replacing the pricier full-service option. This type of self-service model is good for consumers and producers alike. The business owner can reduce overhead costs because consumers take on many of the tasks that would otherwise be handled by paid employees. Consumers benefit because they are allowed easier, on-demand…

    29 Apr 2015 | 9:09 am
    In the wake of the catastrophic 7.8-magnitude earthquake that occurred in Nepal over the weekend, some of the biggest names in technology are providing help and support. Apple, Google, Facebook, and Twitter (along with telecommunications companies Time Warner, Verizon, and AT&T) are all contributing funds and services to those affected by this horrific event. Apple has teamed up with the American Red Cross and is using its iTunes store to raise funds.  It says that 100% of the donations will be given to the Red Cross to help with the relief efforts.  Twitter is also raising money…

  • Mark Zuckerberg Q&A

    17 Apr 2015 | 8:17 am
    Facebook cofounder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg held a question-and-answer session on his website on Tuesday for his users. The questions posed ran the spectrum from the highly relevant to the utterly bizarre; one Facebook user asked him, “If you could be any biscuit, what biscuit would you be?”  Zuckerberg, understandably, chose not to respond to that particular question.  He did, however, address a few hot-topic issues such as net neutrality, his thoughts about whether social media hinder face-to-face communication, and his work with He continues to support Net neutrality,…
  • Why Outsource Your Website Content?

    10 Apr 2015 | 7:28 am
    You are running a business, and you know your business through and through.  You are an expert in your field.  You know what you are talking about and how to do your job.  So why should you spend the money to get someone outside your field write the content for your website?  Well, there are several reasons, actually. You may know your field, but you may not be a good writer. If you cannot properly express your expertise in writing, no one will know how good you are at your job.  And the fact is, whether it is fair or accurate or not, people tend to judge overall intelligence by writing…

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

    The initial wave of Persona 5 screenshots have surfaced on PlayStation Japan’s official game page, giving us the first batch of new content since the game’s reveal took over the internet back in February.

Officially titled Overkill’s The Walking Dead, the game will be set in Washington, D.C. and will directly tap into the comic series’ canon rather than the television show.

    Nearly two million BMW (ETR: BMW) 1 Series models have been sold since the introduction of the first 1 Series generation ten years ago. When it was introduced, the 1 Series raised a few concerns, especially with the conservative BMW customer group in more ways than one. Some even went as far as stating it will be a failure even before it’s sales started. They were wrong. And we are glad they were. The BMW 1 Series brings a dash of luxury, performance and a great premium feeling to the hatchback world. It features well-known BMW build quality, alongside performance and efficiency…

  • A Fast Thunderbolt/USB 3 Portable SSD

    Terry White
    29 Apr 2015 | 9:11 pm
    You can never have too much storage and fast external storage is even better. A few years back I bought the first Elgato External SSD and my only complaint with it was the fact that it only had a single Thunderbolt port. That pretty much killed the use that I thought I would have for it which was to boot from it during certain presentations. Since the MacBook Pros back then only had one Thunderbolt port I couldn’t connect the drive and an external display/projector at the same time. Fast forward to today and the NEW Elgato Thunderbolt Drive + and while we still get a single Thunderbolt…

I was able to get into the site by 3:05 AM and I placed my order for a 42mm Silver Sport Watch. The Silver Sport only comes bundled with a White Band, Blue Band, Pink Band or Green Band. I’m really not fond of any of those colors, but wanted the Silver watch. Therefore I ordered an extra Black sport band…

    Jerry Lewis worked tirelessly for more than 45 years bringing together celebrities, his humor and viewers for an annual Labor Day telethon to benefit children suffering from Muscular Dystrophy. It seemed the country came together to watch celebrities like Frank Sinatra, Celine Dion and Jennifer Lopez perform and man telephones as the tote board marked the millions of dollars coming in for “Jerry’s kids.” Tears flowed as an exhausted Jerry Lewis ended each telethon with his broken, but moving rendition of You’ll Never Walk Alone. That era of American television has come…

Elizabeth Banks began at the bottom with bit parts in movies and television, and has now made her way into a very small circle of women who have directed hit films in Hollywood. While Elizabeth Banks was at the bottom, she shared auditions with a young and vibrant Tara Reid. In an interview for The Hollywood Reporter, Elizabeth Banks was talking about how…

  • It’s Google vs. Apple: the Android Wear has been updated

    Nidhi Mathew
    27 Apr 2015 | 1:35 am
    The competition between Google and Apple is obvious, and while Apple is all set to launch the Apple Watch, Google is not ready to go down without a fair fight. Just before the launch of the Apple gear, Google has launched its Android Watch update. The Mountain View-based company has not only launched the new version of its wearable-centric operating system before Apple, but has also managed to cover all the flaws that Apple didn’t pay attention to. The upgraded version of the Android Wear is smarter, and comes with an array of features that will leave customers thinking which one to…

    Facebook’s acquisition of WhatsApp for $19 billion has implication in the company’s strategy toward communication business. The leaks related to the app’s upgraded features last month suggested that WhatsApp will offer users voice calling feature. Apparently, the company moved fast. As of Tuesday, April 21, WhatsApp allows iOS users voice calls soon after it does the same for Android users by the end of March.

    Apple’s iPod lineup of products were seen as an obsolete gadget, considering how iPhones and iPad Mini were able to perform the exact same functions as iPods. Now, it appears that the Cupertino tech giant Apple plans on refreshing its long running product with its iPod sixth generation. The iPod is expected to feature a plethora of improvements, including a better performing camera sensor, and a 64 bit capable processor running inside a powerful chipset. The iPod sixth generation is expected to feature a 4 inch screen size and while the resolution being rendered on those 4 inches have not…

    It was fun while it lasted. But Twitter decided that users shouldn’t be able to play classic MS-DOS games within the app. This unintended feature was said to violate the “rules of engagement” of the site. Twitter hasn’t allowed developers yet to host rich applications within its social network so the shutdown doesn’t come as a surprise. Source: VentureBeat | Via: Gizmodo
  • Say goodbye to Windows Media Center

    2 May 2015 | 7:59 pm
    Looks like Microsoft is ready to pull the plug on Windows Media Center. They haven’t been updating or developing the service since 2009 but it has been shipped in an upgrade pack for Windows 8. But it would seem that won’t be moving beyond that. So, if you’re going to upgrade to Windows 10, prepare to part ways. Windows Media Center was built as a separate Windows XP version and it was going to run full screen as a media player. It also could support TV channels via TV tuners. There were dedicated Media Center PCs out there but it didn’t gain enough traction to go…

Rogue One is set to be released next year and Josh Trank was working on the second unnamed title. Or at least he was supposed to. Trank said in a post on “After a year of having the incredible honor of developing with the wonderful and talented people at Lucasfilm, I’m making a personal decision to move forward on a different path.” Trank is working on the reboot of Fantastic Four.

    28 Apr 2015 | 11:57 pm
    OnePlus One is a beast of a phone and there have been lots of options about custom ROMs that one can try. One of the most elusive one has been the MIUI and especially the v6. There was a team working on this one but unfortunately the project got terminated for some reason. However looks like someone has been working on this in the background and we’ve got hold of flashable zip released/built on the 27th of April 2015 and guess what, its the MIUI v6! We had done an article earlier on how to install the Official MIUI v5 on the OnePlus One and we are back for the one with the MIUI v6.
  • How to Root Xiaomi Redmi 2 [Global & China MIUI 6 ROM]

    27 Apr 2015 | 1:40 am
    The Xiaomi Redmi 2, successor to the Redmi 1S was launched back in March in India. Redmi 2 is an impressive entry-level Android phone priced at Rs. 6,999 that comes with MIUI v6 out of the box. Those who bought the device might be looking to root it in order to flash custom ROM, run power apps that require root access and more. Unfortunately, until now there was no native root method out for Indian variant of Redmi 2 and the ones available were pretty complicated for a basic user. Well, the wait is now over as native root for Redmi 2 running stable MIUI 6 is now released for China and…

ASUS launched the Zenfone 2 on the same day and there is the Mi 4 which is the flagship, oops sorry ex-flagship from Xiaomi and so on. So what should one go for? What is the safest bet?

    Xiaomi has always been about creating buzz, sending shock waves, beefing up hype and throwing surprises. While most of them have been good and well received, some of them have fired back real bad especially after the launch and pricing of the Mi4 around which they really struggled to make sales in India and even the price cuts did seemed to make no  difference. Xiaomi is trying to make some corrections now, trying to pacify and pamper the Indian crowd – they realize, understand and acknowledge how important a market India is and decide to do a GLOBAL launch of a phone right here from…

  • Featured On Tim Cook’s Keynote – What It Takes

    Frédéric Filloux
    26 Apr 2015 | 10:54 am
    by Frederic Filloux At last October’s introduction of the new iPad Air, the creators of a clever iOS app named Replay were invited on stage. To get there, they went through a selection process that illustrates Apple’s perfectionism — and hidden application sophistication. In September 2014, while at the Stupeflix Paris office, Nicolas Steegmann got a call from Apple in Cupertino. Once the caller identified herself, Nicolas knew something up. The contact came after Stupeflix presentations to Apple’s team in Paris. In rather elliptic terms, Steegman’s interlocutor said…

    by Jean-Louis Gassée We may have dodged the Comcast/Time Warner bullet but we’re still far from getting rid of the antiquated set-top boxes and cable modems that only exist to protect juicy old business models. We can breathe a sigh of relief: The proposed $45B merger between Comcast and Time Warner Cable (TWC) is dead. When the merger was announced with size-appropriate fanfare just before Valentine’s Day, 2014, normal humans saw the deal as clearly dangerous. How could “Concast”, a company that’s unanimously despised and indisputably abusive, be allowed to bear down with even…

    19 Apr 2015 | 12:15 pm
      by Frederic Filloux The French government didn’t foresee the negative ripple effect of its interventionism in the Dailymotion case. VCs and entrepreneurs are appalled. It’s time to rethink the French way of funding innovation. (Part 2 or 2) Last week, we looked at the pathetic Dailymotion saga.  Once described as “one the best French startups”, Dailymotion was funded, for a large part, with public money, then put on life support by Orange, patriotically protected by two economy ministers, and finally sold to media conglomerate Vivendi. The transaction did…

This week we look at what Rajeev Suri, the CEO of the combined companies, is up against. April 15th 2015: Nokia “agrees” to the $16.6B takeover of Alcatel-Lucent On the surface, the acqui-merger makes sense.

Not buyers, nor the the startup’s management team –and certainly not the venture capital community. (First of two articles)  DailyMotion was meant to be a YouTube competitor. The two companies were actually born almost simultaneously in 2005. Unfortunately, Dailymotion remained deeply French (even though his CEO later resettled in California). Over the last two years, it has become a typical French political football, kicked around by a succession of two cabinet…

  • The Day the Music Died: A Grooveshark Retrospective

    2 May 2015 | 9:30 am
    Grooveshark is dead. Killed after 10 years by record labels baying for blood. The music streaming service famously offered free streaming of seemingly every song, and infamously did so without licenses. It’s kind of surprising the site stayed online as long as it did – it took until April 30, 2015 for the site to be taken offline entirely, after nearly a decade of controversy. As of now, would-be users are treated to a message instead of music: We failed to secure licenses from rights holders for the vast amount of music on the service. That was wrong. We apologize.

  • EHRs Can Predict the Risk of Sepsis at an Early Stage, Says UC Davis Researchers

    Natalie Tornese
    29 Apr 2015 | 1:23 am
    As per the National Institute of Health (NIH), around 750, 000 Americans are affected by severe sepsis every year and around 210, 000 of these people die. The major impediment to providing treatment for sepsis is that it is very hard to distinguish the disease in its early stages. However, UC Davis researchers found it is possible to predict the early stages of sepsis with the routine information (blood pressure, respiratory rate, temperature and white blood cell count) from EHRs. Since it is hard to distinguish sepsis earlier, patients are not often screened for blood lactate levels. As…
  • Autism “in Utero” Can Be Detected with Routine Ultrasound Scans

    Julie Clements

    Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) is a neurodevelopmental condition that is usually diagnosed in childhood but lasts a lifetime. Over the last couple of decades, there has been a tremendous rise in this condition. CDC statistics show that Autism Spectrum Disorders currently affect approximately 1 in 88 children born in the United States. Several controversies exist regarding the stage at which this condition can be dictated through an ultrasound scan. A study, led by Michigan State University earlier in 2013 found that an ultrasound scan within the first few days of life may already be able to…

    Physicians depend on medical billing and coding departments to submit claims to insurance companies. Poorly managed processes affect not only practice revenue but also patients. Patient statements are generated based on what insurance companies do not cover. Reviewing statements before they are sent out to patients can help detect errors if any and improve customer satisfaction in addition to preventing delayed payments, costly fines, and loss of revenue. Errors that Result in Wrong Statements Before the statement is sent to the patient, ensure that the following errors have not been made:…

  • Starbucks gives away thousands of free coffees following a POS outage — is software systems management the problem?

    #TheFrappening Starbucks gave away thousands of free drinks last Friday after a massive Point of Sale (POS) outage. That may have been a hit with the lucky customers who got a free Frapuccino; however, it exposes just how vulnerable retailers are to POS systems failures and security threats. Savvy twitter users jumped on the opportunity to get free coffee as the hashtag #TheFrappening became a trending topic. And some journalists estimated that Starbucks lost around $3 million that day because of their retail computer outage. Although Starbucks was quick to respond, reassuring the public…

  • Intelligent app stores using artificial neural networks

    Sasikanth Raghava
    28 Apr 2015 | 2:58 am
    Modern App-stores have evolved very quickly but the pricing models are very much out-dated and static in the sense that there is no quantitative way to intelligently estimate the price of an app depending upon the demand and usability of the app. In this article I have tried to answer the question ‘at what price should I sell my app?’ I have extended this idea to a dynamic and adaptive model wherein the prices can change depending upon demand. In both the cases I have estimated the total revenue returns. I have used Lagrange multipliers to arrive at the optimization of neural…

    Joomla 3.4 was released last month and just as with every major Joomla release there were beta and release candidates made available for testing over the preceding weeks. Those special releases are made specifically for Joomla developers to use to both test the changes in the upcoming release AND to check that their own code is still working as intended. Despite this after every release we see the same extension and template developers wait until AFTER the release before they even look at the code and test their own work. Then they are in a mad panic and rush to release updates. Meanwhile…

  • Rewarding Impatience with User Self-Service

    Steve Brasen
    27 Apr 2015 | 6:34 am
    There seems to be a direct correlation between how successful business professionals are and their level of impatience. While I am not familiar with any studies on this particular subject, it is simple logic that the most productive employees are those who most frequently demand rapid response to service requests. From my past experience managing and providing IT administrative support, I can attest that these individuals are usually the most irritating—constantly requesting access to new applications, data, and other business resources with expectations of an immediate response.

    Steve Brasen
    13 Apr 2015 | 9:15 am
    In a perfect world, all business processes would be automated and all work tasks would be accomplished with the click of a button. This idyllic work experience seems to be the realization of Plato’s utopia…or, if you prefer, the world of the Jetsons. Regrettably, however, we clearly do not live in a perfect world. Put simply, while any repeatable process can be automated, not every process is repeatable, so automation is not a practical solution in all cases. This is particularly a problem for enterprises since business productivity is almost entirely dependent on the rapid and accurate…

    Though cyber attacks have been around for years, in 2014 there was an explosion in the volume of attacks and a marked increase in the losses and damages they inflicted. In 2015, this does not seem to be lightening up. In February, Anthem health care insurers were compromised, putting 80 million current and former customers and employees at risk, followed in March by Primera Blue Cross, which added another 11 million records of the same. The full extent of these breaches may not be determined for months to over a year. Along with cyber attacks, cyber-hack insurance policy issuance is also…

    IT operations managers are cringing all around the world – desperately trying to avoid those inevitable words from their executive management: “You need to support enterprise mobility.” Their concerns are understandable. After all, IT administrators are already overtaxed with supporting desktop, server, application, and infrastructure management requirements. Asking them to layer a whole new management discipline on top of that can be a daunting prospect. IT managers who find themselves in this predicament often recognize it as an opportunity to practice the fine art of procrastination.

    I think we all agree that our work is all about achieving high performance, scalable and most importantly simple solutions to complex problems. Over the years spent on developing and designing software solutions I have noticed the tendency to overcomplicate things by developers, DB architects and UI designers. After a certain time the reasons for that have eventually become clear to me. What I have observed is the fact that everyone focuses on their layer. They don’t pay enough attention to other parts of the system and don’t know how they could help their colleagues working on other…

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

Hopefully, your business is growing and if things go well you will soon need your own platform.

  • CHILD 44 – A Brief Review (No Spoilers)

    27 Apr 2015 | 2:20 pm
    This has made it onto the top 10 films I have ever seen. When searching for the image above, I also came across the fact that the average review for it is very poor, between one and three stars, which initially (and stupidly) shocked me. This film is truly amazing and or a variety of reasons, but primary amongst them is that it is a very real portrayal of what happens when Political Correctness becomes the ideology of the day. And yes, I really do mean that, and yes, the emphasis on Political Correctness is indeed on Political. But do not be fooled. What you think is harmless garden variety…

I had been thinking of joining the tornado of blog posts on this topic, but what clinched it was that I bought a kinder egg for my daughter and when I opened it for her it had this in it. Seriously. I am not making this up.

    As the Russian hackers and others devoted to this site have noticed, it has been rather dormant for some time. To say the last two years have been rough would be like saying that World War Two was a slight disagreement. Those who know why know, those who don’t don’t. The poem IF, by Rudyard Kipling, has been a favourite of mine since I first read it as a teenager, and it pretty much describes my sense of things. Along with the parts of the samurai poem I know by heart, they have, at difficult times, been a source of some comfort. This time they fell far short. So much so I…

    Ad-hoc research is often the most used method by which we understand our markets and new innovations. Most of us work on evolving markets that often have very specific questions which we feel we need to address and ask of consumers. For most of us these questions change nearly every time we look at a new innovation. Even in the case of incremental adjustments we often come up with new aspects we hadn’t thought of before. This leads to questions that we just have to ask this time even though we have nothing to compare the answers to, and which we may not ask next time. We fear leaving a…

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

    Bing has been on a rampage lately, working steadily to prove it can out-google Google. First they released a high-powered suite of image search features, then improved local business listings. The latest Bing rollout, however, doesn’t aim to rocket it ahead of Google: it just plays catch up. That rollout is the appearance of long form answers in the search results. That means that Bing puts an in-depth answer box in the search results, giving you the information you want without ever having to click through to a site.

  • What Happens If You Disavow the Wrong Link?

Disavow is a tool that Google offers so you can disclaim low quality links pointing to your site—essentially calling “not it” and getting your penalty removed. That tool is extremely useful if you cultivated less-than-great links in the distant past or if your competitors try to undermine your SEO by pointing spam your way. But Glenn warns that it can also go horribly awry: website owners who aren’t careful could cast away high value links, or even close the door on good links in…

The rise of high speed internet has made it possible to share videos, images, books and whole movies, with or without the creator’s permission. But whose responsibility is it to fight back—the copyright owners, or the search engines? That question remains contentious, but Google has stepped up its efforts to crack down on piracy.

A new article by Bryson Meunier explores how we can go beyond that. Bryson points out that being mobile friendly is the bare minimum of what it takes to avoid a penalty. He asks how we can make mobile sites even better, and what effects that may…
  • Google’s Recommending Apps, but What’s In It for You?

    Andre Sólo
    20 Apr 2015 | 1:45 pm
    Not long ago Google made a relatively unnoticed announcement: content from Android apps would get highly ranked in Google search results. As I wrote at the time, that simply doesn’t affect many people—you need to already have the app installed for its content to show up in your searches. And it’s only for Android, not iPhone. It turns out that little-heralded event was just the first step, however. Google has now changed the rules. It’s not just content from apps you’ve installed, it’s content from any Android app that Google has indexed. If your search…

  • There's a new app that'll solve the problem of irregular paychecks

    Shane Ferro
    3 May 2015 | 5:10 am
    Not everyone gets a regular, stable paycheck. There's a long article in the New York Times Magazine on Even, the startup that tries to help workers with volatile incomes by smoothing out their paychecks. The idea is to average out the amount that a user has coming in, then distribute it in regular chunks. If they get paid more one week, that goes into a savings account. If they take in less, Even either pays them out of their own savings account or extends credit interest free. This could be invaluable for people who work irregular schedules, but it will only work if the users are actually…

    3 May 2015 | 5:00 am
    First class can be plenty luxurious, but it's nothing like Singapore Airline's iconic Suites Class. Travel blogger Derek Low recently cashed in his frequent flyer miles to purchase an $18,125.30 round-trip ticket in Suites Class, and thankfully he took lots of gorgeous photos of his journey.

    WWE 2K15 comes to PC! via - OH MY GOD—I can’t tell you just how happy I’m right now: WWE 2K15 is now available on PC! This is the first game in the series’ 15 year history to make its way to the PC. WWE 2K15 was first released on PS3 and Xbox 360 last year; it was later ported to PS4 and Xbox One. Don’t get your hopes too high, however, as the game is a straight-up console port, or so it seems. This means that it doesn’t have the proper PC optimizations and is also short on content. The creation suite, in particular, is scaled back from earlier games. One standout absence is the…

The company officially unveiled the new flagship phone today at an event in New York, and damn that phone looks awesome! The G4 doesn’t look too different from its predecessor. Most of the changes are actually under the hood and on the screen. It retains the quad HD 5.5 inch screen of the G3, but this time it’s a quantum LCD, which has much higher brightness and contrast than regular LCD screens. It also has a…

    Coolermaster’s previous keyboard and mouse combo pack “CM Storm Devastator” has received a good amount of attention from PC users, including gamers. When we reviewed the combo while the keyboard was pretty good with nothing more than two-to-three key rollover support, the mouse could have been more comfortable. CM Storm Octane is another keyboard and mouse combo and as one will expect, it comes with few features and improvements. So what’s the difference between them, other than the design? CM Storm Devastator had a single backlit while Octane provides up to seven. The DPI range…

    Gigabyte G1 Gaming GTX 980 is a non-reference factory overclocked variant of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 980 that was reviewed a long time ago. In comparison with the reference edition, the GPU cooler has multiple changes and would appeal to a good deal of end users. The metal backplate and the triple fan casing is one of the changes, but as the card gets opened, you will see a lot of cooling options that would keep this card away from few GPU maker’s non-reference counterparts. Whether its worth the money or not is your choice, here is the review of the G1 Gaming GTX 980. The post Gigabyte…

    For HTPC setups, having a good case, motherboard and a CPU cooler is important. Coolermaster made a pretty good impression with their CM Elite 130 mini-ITX case. Gigabyte Z97N-WIFI also has a pretty good layout as well.  But with setups like Coolermaster Elite 130, you need clearance as the power supply is mounted just above the mini ITX motherboard. Sure! You do get low profile CPU air coolers and even the stock Intel heatsink is very low profile. But we need better cooling for many reasons, even if it doesn’t include overclocking. Not everyone lives in a place with cool and comfortable…

While it did not commute Veloso’s death sentence, the postponement has granted her and her family a glimmer of hope, a second chance at life, if you will.

Frodo is the smallest and most unlikely hero — and even with powerful friends, he’s not guaranteed to win. I’ve heard more than one friend claim (and who can blame them) that their sexual awakening happened around when the exhausted, sweaty Aragorn opened the doors of Edoras in slow motion. Many young people, myself included, started writing our own fantasy stories inspired by the movies. And our throats…

Moreover, the government’s peace panel headed by Miriam Coronel Ferrer, including Secretary Teresita Deles, admitted knowledge of Iqbal’s nom de guerre; in fact, they also know his real name. So, his use of a fictitious name is not an issue in assessing…

  • China Solar Power Surges: Leaves Entire World Behind

    Pete Danko
    26 Apr 2015 | 8:06 am
    China issued an update on its solar progress this week and made every other solar-seeking country around the world feel kind of pathetic.The National Energy Board said 5.04 GW was installed in the first quarter of 2015. To put that in perspective, China’s three-month total was just a gigawatt shy of what the U.S. installed in all of 2014 – and it was a good year for the Americans, their best ever. And as an Australia-based renewable energy website noted, 5.04 GW is “an amount the Australian government has said would be impossible to install within five years.”image via…

    Pete Danko
    12 Apr 2015 | 9:30 am
    It’s not a contest. Renewable energy is no zero-sum game (or doesn’t have to be, at least), and according to the experts, all of it and then some will be needed to keep global temperatures from rising beyond safe levels. Still, it’s hard not to view the growth of the two leading non-hydro renewable energy technologies – wind and solar – in relation to each other.We reported recently that wind grew quickly in 2014, but solar had itself a very good year as well. And there are signs that it could be in for even more rapid growth.First Solar panels installed at utility-scale site…
  • Wind Surged in 2014, But Can It Keep Up the Pace?

    Pete Danko
    8 Apr 2015 | 9:43 am
    Is wind power coming on fast enough to help shift the world off fossil-fuel-generated electricity before temperatures get too high? Depends on how you look at it.In 2014, Asia, Europe and North America – the usual suspects when it comes to wind power– had solid-to-great installation years. Meanwhile, Latin American (namely, Brazil) became a big-time player for the first time, and it all added up to a solid year for global wind.All told, 51.5 gigawatts (GW) was installed in 2014, the first time the world cracked 50 GW in a single year, and cumulative global capacity now stands at 369.6 GW,…

    Many of us spend more time with our computer , than we spend in bed every night. You’d think we’d all be pros at handling a computer, especially at work, where it’s one of our most essential tools. The problem is, most of us never learned how to use computers that way.

  • The Day the Music Died: A Grooveshark Retrospective

    Justin Pot
    2 May 2015 | 9:30 am
    Grooveshark is dead. Killed after 10 years by record labels baying for blood. The music streaming service famously offered free streaming of seemingly every song, and infamously did so without licenses. It’s kind of surprising the site stayed online as long as it did – it took until April 30, 2015 for the site to be taken offline entirely, after nearly a decade of controversy. As of now, would-be users are treated to a message instead of music: We failed to secure licenses from rights holders for the vast amount of music on the service. That was wrong. We apologize.

Maybe someone told you that cleaning out the registry will fix computer performance issues or application crashes or something else that sounds really good.

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

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

    2 May 2015 | 7:50 am
    In order to let websites serve browser-specific settings and pages, your browser sends a string called user agent to the websites that you visit on your computer. That way the target website gets to know what browser you are using and serves the pages accordingly. While most websites look the same in every browser, some have specific files that are only rendered when using a specific browser, Safari, for example. If you wish to see how a site looks in a specific browser, you can change the user agent in Safari on your Mac and pretend to be another browser.When you change the user agent…

  • The US-Russian Space Station mission is a study in cooperation

    Steven Freeland, Professor of International Law at University of Western Sydney
    30 Apr 2015 | 10:42 pm
    The International Space Station is a multi-nation effort to keep in orbit around Earth. NASA's Marshall Space Flight Center , CC BY-SAThe unfortunate loss of the Russian Progress M-27M cargo vessel destined for the International Space Station (ISS) has highlighted the interdependence of the US and Russia in the project.

  • The pillars of creation - a glimpse into how stars are born

    Tanya Hill, Honorary Fellow of the University of Melbourne and Senior Curator (Astronomy) at Museum Victoria
    30 Apr 2015 | 5:35 pm
    It’s the image that back in 1995 saved the Hubble Space Telescope (HST). It turned around five years of public mockery by demonstrating loud and clear that Hubble would live up to – and grow to exceed – the high expectations that had been placed on it. Dubbed the ‘Pillars of Creation’, this image evokes a response from all people, whether you are into science or not. But one thing scientists want to do is to better understand the pillars and discover what they tell us about the dark, hidden regions where stars form. This region has been studied in great detail over the last 20…

NASAA Russian spacecraft designed to carry supplies to the International Space Station is spinning out of control as it orbits Earth. The Progress M-27M cargo vessel – which thankfully has no crew onboard – was launched from Kazakhstan on Wednesday but soon after things quickly went awry.

  • Charged up: the history and development of batteries

    Batteries have come a long way since their beginning back in 250BC. Flickr/Patty, CC BY-NC-SABatteries are so ubiquitous today that they’re almost invisible to us. Yet they are a remarkable invention with a long and storied history, and an equally exciting future. A battery is essentially a device that stores chemical energy that is converted into electricity. Basically, batteries are small chemical reactors, with the reaction producing energetic electrons, ready to flow through the external device. Batteries have been with us for a long time.

  • Microsoft needs to cut the mobile cancer from Windows 10

    Mark Wilson
    2 May 2015 | 2:19 pm
    In the new world of Microsoft there has been a distinct shift in focus; Satya Nadella has said that the company's focus is a "mobile-first, cloud-first" strategy. This is all well and good -- and in many ways makes a great deal of sense -- but there is a very real danger that Microsoft is focusing too much on these new goals and to the detriment of other areas. Windows 10 is an excellent case in point. This is an operating system that is destined for a wide range of devices, from phones and tablets to desktops, consoles and IoT devices yet to be devised. But in catering to the mobile side of…

    Year after year computers increase in power. Processors become faster and gain more cores, memory also speeds up and becomes more plentiful. But we're reaching the limits of what can be achieved with current technology -- a real sea change is needed to take things to the next level. Many futurists have set their sights on the possibilities encompassed in quantum computing. Eschewing the binary states of 1 and 0, bits are replaced with qubits which can hold three states -- on, off, or both at the same time. This introduces the opportunity for much greater computing power, but also introduces…

  • Where To Register For Your Baby Shower

    Jessica Benton
    1 May 2015 | 5:15 am
    Registering for a baby shower is pretty much essential when you are pregnant. That is usually if you haven’t just had a baby in the last few years. I haven’t had a baby in 15 years and so much has changed. In fact when I had my first 4 children, I didn’t ever have a baby shower and really didn’t live near any stores that offered them. That was years ago. Now you can do everything online. Some baby registry lists are even available in an app like the one that I am using called BabyList. Others are your traditional baby registry where you can go to the store and use a…

  • My IVF Cycle- Nerves, Headaches, and Exhaustion

    Last week I told you about getting qualified for the Ivy Study, that provided a discounted IVF cycle at the Houston Fertility Specialists Clinic. My doctor was Dr. Dunn. He was great but I mostly met with the study nurse. I called her Mrs. Jackie.  At this clinic they charged $2500  plus about $500 for medication to participate in an IVF cycle in the Ivy study. If the first cycle did not work, you could participate a second or even third time, each for an additional $2500. This was a whole lot cheaper than paying out of pocket for a traditional round of IVF that could cost around $10,000…

  • Book Review: Delivering Happiness

    Joe Kinsella
    20 Apr 2015 | 5:17 am
    I just finished Tony Hsieh’s book, Delivering Happiness, which is an autobiography of his tech journey from Illinois to the acquisition of Zappos by Amazon. As an avid reader of tech non-fiction, I can’t get enough startup stories behind the story. It’s great to get away from the sterile founding stories that go from idea to success with no interruption. The real stories are always messier, a lot less certain of themselves, and much more interesting. Tony’s book was a little off the beaten path for me since I was neither a customer of Zappos nor someone who followed his career. The…
  • Becoming Steve Jobs

    Joe Kinsella
    2 Apr 2015 | 6:59 pm
    Two things made me want to read Brent Schlender’s Becoming Steve Jobs after its release last week: 1) all the media talk from Apple insiders that this was the “real Steve Jobs”, and 2) its simple and compelling premise: exploring how a reckless and arrogant entrepreneur became one of the greatest business leaders of our time. While it was a good read, I couldn’t help but be slightly disappointed that it was more about the former (showing a new side of Steve Jobs) and less about the later (how Steve evolved). Let me dispense with what I didn’t like. If you read Walter Isaacson’s…
  • But What About the Hole?

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

    Joe Kinsella
    28 Mar 2015 | 8:51 am
    Every day across the tech industry, teams gather for daily stand-up meetings. While the structure varies by organization, the intent is the same: to provide status and identify blocking issues. While I have attended many stand-ups over the years, I have an odd footnote in my personal history: I was at the very first stand-up. The location was 25 Corporate Drive in Burlington, Massachusetts (current headquarters of Acquia), and the year was 1992 or 1993. I was a fresh-faced college graduate who had recently transferred to a small software team in Easel Corporation to join two talented…
  • Using Trello for Hiring

    Joe Kinsella
    27 Mar 2015 | 4:38 am
    Early in CloudHealth I used Trello as a quick and easy way to manage my time. Having a visual board gave me a sense of order that helped better manage my Lean validation. As time went on and the company was formed, I found new uses for Trello, such as managing my sprints, roadmap, personal to-do list and even product documentation. As we started ramping our 2015 hiring, our HR manager and I decided to try a new use for Trello: as a hiring board. The model we adopted was simple: cards as candidates and color-coded labels to denote our different sources (e.g. referral, recruiter, internally…

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

    There are two companies who dominate the online advertising business, right? We all know it’s impossible to keep up with what Facebook does with your information, because every time someone gets a good handle on their privacy settings, they change them. But there’s a pretty straightforward list that helps you navigate what information Google stores about you. Oh, and don’t forget to come up with decent passwords. It seems like every few days, there is a story about the latest scam to hit – usually about two weeks after it’s been filling our inboxes. The most…

We stayed pretty close to home this year, and just enjoyed a day of peace and quiet – something that the Other Half has been asking for for years (though if I hit the lottery in the next couple of months, I might consider this for him. And speaking of “asking for for years”, both and Wikipedia are asking for money. In the past, I’ve used this space to run an end of the year list of lists, but some things outlive their usefulness, so I’ve only come up with a…

    What does your smartphone's battery look like when it overheats? A little bit scary, as a new video posted by University College London shows. The video was posted as part of a project being conducted by UCL Chemical Engineering PhD student Donal Finegan  and Dr Paul Shearing, who are trying to understand more about the reasons that lithium-ion batteries fail. This is important because these batteries are increasingly being used not only in our phones but also in electric cars. Continue reading...

  • Why recruiters often get a bad reputation in the job market

    29 Apr 2015 | 1:15 am
    A few months ago I met a recruiter who told me that he hates recruitment. ‘Hate’ is a pretty strong word, but that’s what he said. So I had coffee with him to find out why. He started the conversation by telling me that he is a pretty good salesperson – and he was able to evidence this by explaining how he had won a reasonable amount of new business for the company. He also told me that he was 4th in a team of 10 in terms of number of interviews arranged each week. Despite this, however, he said that his manager was constantly ‘nagging him’ about lack of results. To use a…

The project reached its $110,000 goal pretty quickly, but it continued snowballing until today, where it finished with a total of $600,874. That massive sum puts De La Soul in the number two slot for the most-funded Kickstarter music projects of all time (Pebble Time is still the highest-grossing out of any project category).

One of the company's software engineers, Thomas Dimson, has used Instagram's endless stores of comments to analyze emoji. In a in-depth blog post, Dimson shows how emoji usage has blossomed over the years — nearly half of all comments now contain an emoji, up from just around 20 percent from 2012 to 2013. But it's his emoji definitions and rankings that are of particular interest. Dimson used algorithms and the context around emoji usage to come up with…

It started with: "Early on, Paul Allen and I set the goal of a computer on every desk and in every home. It was a bold idea and a lot of people thought we were out of our minds to imagine it was possible."  Beyond proving that goal was just possible, Microsoft's software moved out of our homes and off our desks to power a variety of things such as healthcare systems and ATMs. This is often forgotten, but Microsoft has empowered people for…

They wanted a mobile app with depth that would cater to as wide an audience as possible, with all the right features and nothing cut-and-paste.

If you upload a group photo, it will tag all the faces it recognizes with age and gender guesses. Over time, the facial recognition…

    Let's get virtual The value proposition of using Epic Games' Unreal Engine keeps getting better. Just under two months ago, Epic ditched the $19 per month subscription free, opting instead to give budding developers free and unfettered access to its complete C++ source code hosted in GitHub while continuing to collect a 5 percent royalty on gross revenue after the $3,000 per project. Now Epic is adding support for SteamVR in Unreal Engine 4, the company announced today. Support for SteamVR will roll out in next week's first preview release of Unreal Engine 4.8, thereby giving developers the…
