    By: Hillel Fuld (@Hilzfuld) Many years ago (ok, not that many but 5 years in virtual land is a lot!), I decided I was going to interview people who inspire me. Since then, I have been doing so as often as I can. Here are all my superstar interviews. When I first decided to try to reach these people, I set my goals quite high and even made myself laugh at the thought of ever accomplishing the goal of meeting and/or interviewing the Woz. Well, it took me all those years but then a few months back, I managed to land my Woz interview. That is old news though, so why am I telling you this? Well,…

    It's taken me about nine years, but I finally understand what Yamaha's going on about with its "torque sports" MT range. After spending a couple of weeks with the MT-09 (or FZ-09 as it's known in America), I'm convinced. Not only is Yamaha on the right track, but the MT-09 is the kind of machine that could cause a mini-revolution in the motorcycle market. Lightweight, super cheap and blessed with one of the best new engines we've seen in years, the MT is barrel-of-monkeys level fun in just about any real-world riding context. And boy did we have fun putting this video together!.. Continue…

  • Big data for social good: 5 ways to a higher purpose

    Big data offers huge opportunity. We often discuss its many benefits to businesses, but it can also be used to dramatically improve the lives of millions of people. What if we knew when crops would be affected by bad climate? What if we could stop people becoming homeless? Imagine being able to map the possible causes of death in a war. If only we knew when trouble was on the way. Humanitarian organizations and non-profits have struggled for the lack of availability of big-data analytic resources to help them with society’s problems.

I hope some one, some day writes the definitive piece on all the girls inspired by this popular television character.   Role models are vital. They help clear the path, guide our future and quite possibly change the world. But where do they come from?  Many look toward Silicon Valley, land of the smart, home of the super-rich.

    By: Hillel Fuld (@Hilzfuld) There are many tech blogs out there. Way too many. For us tech addicts, that means too much daily reading. But then there are the ones that stand out. The tech blogs that consistently put out top-notch work and do it without the need for stupid blogger politics, or an ego the size of south america. Of course that last part, the lack an ego that makes it difficult to work with them, really limits the bunch to a very few selected blogs. The Next Web is at the top of that list.

    When you think of TV families, you may conjure up the Brady Bunch or the Jetsons. But, for many of us growing up in either the 1960s or the 1990s, we look to a different, less nuclear family: the Addams. Sure, they may be creepy, kooky, mysterious, spooky and all together ooky, but they are still a family with normal problems, even if they may whip out a crystal ball to solve them. From a trip to summer camp to a new baby, the Addams have experience with relationship dynamics See also: 10 Real-Life Haunted Locations Across the U.S. Here's a few words of advice straight from the clan Read…

    So, Apple got plenty of kudos from security and privacy folks in deciding to encrypt mobile phone data, but over on the desktop side, apparently the message hasn't quite gotten through. Instead, it appears that the latest Mac operation system has the company automatically sending all of your desktop searches back to Apple.

    The facts are in, thanks to Vice Media and Jason Leopold. Washington, DC police have a Stingray cell tower spoofer and have been using it for several years. The Metropolitan Police Department was an early adopter, but moving too fast cost it about five years of use. Back in 2003, the Metropolitan Police Department (MPD) in Washington, DC was awarded a $260,000 grant from the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to purchase surveillance technology called Stingray — a contraption the size of a suitcase that simulates a cell phone tower and intercepts mobile phone calls and text messages.

    Not all things can be trademarked, and one of the most common reasons a term, word, or phrase is refused protection is if it is purely descriptive. The stock examples of this make sense to us inuitively: a company couldn't trademark "Black Computers" as part of their business, since the term is neither unique nor does it do anything besides simply describing the product. But I think real-world examples of this sort of thing drive the point home even more.

    After the last two weeks of abnormally hot weather on the Central Coast, things finally cooled down and my running heated up some at the 2014 XTERRA Point Mugu 18K trail race. The race took place today, October 12, 2014, at Point Mugu State Park in Malibu, just a few miles south of Oxnard. It’s been a year and a half since I first started my fitness journey and about a year since running became a big part of that trek. My first trail race was the XTERRA Malibu Creek 22K which was extremely challenging, so much so that I immediately signed up for the Bulldog 25K which pretty…

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

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

The good news was that it wasn’t as hot as it had been all week (high 90’s and low 100’s) but it was still plenty hot in the high 80’s. This was my first of hopefully many trail races and it was a bit of a beast. I decided to do the race about three weeks ago and only had one chance to check out part of the course. I blogged about that experience in my pre-race report. Having never tried to tackle the infamous Bulldog Road portion of the course before, I tried to figure out how tough it…

No I didn’t see Justin Bieber but I did have a fancy Porsche tailgating me as I tried to find the park entrance. I had run into the XTERRA Malibu Creek Trail Run race in a magazine and thought I’d check out the site. Once I got to the Park I found out that parking was $12 and that they didn’t take credit. If you go to a park and have cash on hand, pay it. They need the revenue. I didn’t have it so I parked up across the street. More on this in a bit. If you’re more of a…

    BOSTON/BEIJING (Reuters) - Apple Inc's iCloud storage and backup service in China was attacked by hackers trying to steal user credentials, a Chinese web monitoring group said, adding that it believes the country's government is behind the campaign. Using a method called a "man-in-the-middle" (MITM) attack, unknown hackers interposed their own website between users and Apple's iCloud server, intercepting data and potentially gaining access to passwords, iMessages, photos and contacts, Greatfire.org wrote in its blog post.

     During today’s earnings call for Apple’s fiscal Q4 2014, CEO Tim Cook took time to address the iPad’s performance at length. Cook referred to a lot of the general kinds of negative feeling around iPad performance circulating around media and analysts, and brought up his own perspective on the product category. “I take a step back on iPad,” he said. “I know… Read More

     Apple’s earnings for the final quarter of its fiscal 2014 year are out, and boy did they sell a lot of iPhones. The hardware quarter saw 39.3 million iPhones sold, along with 12.3 million iPads and a very respectable 5.5 million Macs, with the fading iPod category bringing up the rear with 2.6 million sales. iPhone growth year-over-year is the most impressive stat here, and it’s… Read More

     Apple’s newest iMac has the best display ever on a computing device. Let’s just get that out the way right at the start: You won’t find a better screen anywhere else, period. The 27-inch, 5120×2880 screen has a PPI of 218, or roughly equivalent to that of the MacBook Pro with Retina display, but the specs on paper, while impressive in their own right, can’t convey… Read More

     Apple’s iOS 8.1 arrives today, and it brings with it some impressive new abilities. First and foremost, at least in terms of its long-term impact, is probably the introduction of Apple Pay, the new mobile payment solution built into iPhone 6 and 6 Plus, and the new iPad Air 2 and iPad mini 3.

    Yahoo has been on a shopping spree as of late. The company has been busy buying up a bunch of different companies and if you a report from TechCrunch is any accurate, it seems that Yahoo might have a new acquisition in the works. According to their report, Yahoo is said to be in talks with video ad platform BrightRoll about a possible acquisition. The terms sheets have reportedly been signed and the deal is said to be worth anywhere between $500 million and $1 billion. The idea is to help Yahoo better compete against Google’s YouTube, especially since BrightRoll’s video ad platform works…

    If you’re a World of Warcraft player who has recently returned or who are planning on returning to the world of Azeroth for the upcoming Warlords of Draenor expansion, you might be in for quite a shock. This is because of Patch 6.0.2 in which Blizzard has done away with quite a fair amount of skills and abilities from the different classes. This is because Blizzard wanted gamers to focus on the core abilities of their classes and chosen talents, as opposed to having a huge bag of skills to choose from which could end up being a bit confusing for gamers and also possibly redundant as well.

    It is understandable why some people are a little concerned when it comes to self-driving cars. After all it basically means you’re giving up control of your vehicle and relying completely on hardware and software to function as it was intended, which we have to admit can be a little scary. That being said, if the idea of a normal self-driving car is a little scary, wouldn’t it be a lot more scary if that self-driving car was of the sports variety? Well it looks like the folks at Audi have been pushing the envelope as they have recently taken the wraps off their self-driving Audi RS7 car…

Clearly, a new era is upon us, as hardware manufacturers are now adding the “Mini” suffix to names of devices once considered unwieldy giants.

Yes, subs, as we reckon Google deems the Nexus 6 phone the replacement for the 2013 Nexus 7 tablet.

    In a world that's been dominated for far too long by the Systemd Inferno, Linux fans will have to be forgiven if they seize perhaps a bit too gleefully upon the scraps of cheerful news that come along on any given day. Of course, for cheerful news, there's never any better place to look than the Reglue effort. Run by longtime Linux advocate and all-around-hero-for-kids Ken Starks, as alert readers may recall, Reglue just last week launched a brand-new fundraising effort on Indiegogo to support its efforts over the coming year.

"I'm a huge believer in the rule of law, but I also believe that no one in this country should be beyond the law," he said. However, the law has not kept pace with technology, and "we have the legal authority to intercept and access communications information pursuant to a court order -- but we often lack the technical ability to do that," Comey explained.
  • Tablet Wars: The iPad Drifts Toward Mediocrity

    Rob Enderle
    20 Oct 2014 | 6:26 am
    There have been a lot of interesting tablets launched over the last month, but Apple -- the primary driver in this market -- didn't launch one of them. Remember when the first and second iPads came out? They were magical, amazing devices. Fifty percent of the installed base is still generation 1 and 2 iPads. This shows what a great job Steve Jobs did at exciting the market, but it reflects on the fact that Tim Cook can't get people to give them up to buy new ones. Tablet sales growth has dropped, and Apple doesn't dominate the market any more.

    Just a month after bumping up the iPhone's size, Apple is back at the table with updated versions of its tablets. There was plenty of focus on the cameras at Apple's presentation, as it tries to promote the tablet as an ideal viewfinder for taking high-quality images, while adding iPhone features like time-lapse and burst mode. However, the new push of iPad photography is just encouraging even more people to look foolish by taking photos with their tablet in public. This is a plague, and Apple is about to make the situation worse.

    The BBC will publish and continually update a list of its published articles that were removed from Google searches under Europe's "right to be forgotten" rule. David Jordan, director of editorial policy and standards for the BBC, announced the move at a public meeting hosted by Google. The decision is a reaction to the European Commission's ruling in May -- affecting all 28 EU member states -- that search engines must remove links to someone's personal information upon request when the links are "inadequate, irrelevant or no longer relevant."

    If you've upgraded your iPhone or iPad to iOS 8, the new software update for Mac computers will seem familiar. The Yosemite update to Apple's OS X system, available as a free download starting Thursday, adds several features to bring the Mac in line with last month's iOS 8 update for mobile devices. There's also new functionality to make Macs act more like iPhones. Yosemite still has plenty of touches that make a Mac a Mac. But it continues a trend of breaking down barriers between the various devices as people depend more on smartphones and tablets for their everyday computing. SEAMLESS…

    With the equivalent of nearly the entire U.S. population using Dropbox around the world and 1 billion files being saved onto the cloud storage service each day, the San Francisco startup has no shortage of reasons to keep data secure. But because people tend to use the same email/password combination across the Internet, a breach at one website means hackers get the keys to a bunch of websites, including Dropbox. Dropbox said Monday that a list of logins were in fact exposed online through some other hack, compromising an untold number of Dropbox accounts. Dropbox users can protect themselves…

It follows HBO's groundbreaking announcement that it will offer a stand-alone streaming service next year. This is a win for consumers who are tired of paying hefty cable bills for hundreds of channels, some that they barely watch.

    Some things get better with time: wine, jeans and this "smart" music player I've been using on and off for a few months. The idea behind the $399 Aether Cone is that over time, it learns your listening habits and weighs such factors as whether it's a lazy Sunday morning. It then plays what it thinks you're in the mood for. I was skeptical because my music tastes vary depending on how I'm feeling at any particular moment. But I've come to enjoy its sometimes-surprising musical tours. I also appreciate its lightweight simplicity. At 2.9 pounds and not much bigger than half a football, the…

    Attackers are using Universal Plug and Play (UPnP) devices to launch massive DDoS assaults, Akamai’s Prolexic Security Engineering & Research Team (PLXsert) warned this morning in an advisory. PLXsert estimates that 4.1 million UPnP devices are potentially vulnerable to exploits used for reflection DDoS attacks.

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…

Researchers from the University of Missouri have found that breakfast is the key to feeling good throughout the day. And just porridge, toast or cereal isn’t going to cut it – you need to add something rich in protein, like eggs, baked beans, or even a protein shake. According to Psych Central, this is more filling, reduces cravings for sweet or fatty foods, and boosts levels of the happiness and confidence hormone…

If you share Spotify with a family member, then you’ll know how frustrating it is when you’re air-drumming away when all of a sudden the music goes dead – just because someone else in the other room wants to listen to something terrible.

The new Retina iMac starts with a 3.5GHz quad-core Intel Core i5 processor with two Thunderbolt 2 ports, 4 USB 3.0, 802.11ac Wi-Fi, and a standard 1TB Fusion Drive.

Later this week, the company will hold another special event, then time to reveal this years iPad lineup, and if reports are correct, updated iMacs (including one with a Retina display.) We’ve heard conflicting reports as to whether the iPad mini will see an update at the event, or if that’ll come early next year, but we do know that the iPad Air will get an update that will make it lighter, slimmer, and more powerful. Vietnamese leak site Tinhte.vn has already showed what’s…

    Jupiter beckons in the distance, a small light, the greatest planet of all I stare through the window, timeless, as the light slowly grows larger I wonder what it will be like to see it with my own eyes Swirls of orange and red and brown, a globe so large I can’t comprehend The Jovian moons circling around the greatest planet of all, enraptured, Captured It is growing larger through the window Through the window that separates me from the void, Separates warmth and air and life from emptiness and death This is what we have constructed To ferry us across the great emptiness of space It…
  • Hong Kong’s Challenge to China

    29 Sep 2014 | 6:02 pm
    After China placed limitations on candidates for Hong Kong’s city leader, Hong Kong erupted in protest. This, of course, presents a large challenge to Xi Jinping and the PRC. Edward Wong and Chris Buckley write for the Times: China’s Communist Party has ample experience extinguishing unrest. For years it has used a deft mix of censorship, arrests, armed force and, increasingly, money, to repress or soften calls for political change. But as he faces massive street demonstrations in Hong Kong pressing for more democracy in the territory, the toolbox of President Xi Jinping of China…

    The phone dominates your attention. For nearly every use, the phone has your undivided attention. Browsing the web, Twitter, Instagram, Snapchat, watching video, reading, messaging—all require focus on a screen that fills your vision, your primary attention, and generally some kind of interaction. Everything else, too, is always a home button or notification-tap away at all times. Is that a shock when the phone is the single gateway to nearly everything? The PC is now for doing work, but the phone is for messaging, taking photos, sharing them, the web, Twitter, Facebook, finding places to…

    Kyle Baxter
    12 Aug 2014 | 5:43 pm
    The founders of Siri are working on a new service called Viv that can link disparate sources of information together to answer questions: But Kittlaus points out that all of these services are strictly limited. Cheyer elaborates: “Google Now has a huge knowledge graph—you can ask questions like ‘Where was Abraham Lincoln born?’ And it can name the city. You can also say, ‘What is the population?’ of a city and it’ll bring up a chart and answer. But you cannot say, ‘What is the population of the city where Abraham Lincoln was born?’” The system may have the data for both…

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

  • Graphene to enable simple electrochromic displays?

    oled
    19 Oct 2014 | 4:49 am
    An LCD works by selectively blocking light from a backlighting unit (BLU, usually made from LEDs) using a crystal which changes its polarization-filtering when voltage is applied. An electrochromic device is similar in idea but more simple as they can be turned from being transparent to being opaque. These kind of displays haven't been commercialized successfully yet due to fragile materials and material mismatches with the electrodes. But new research at Bilkent University shows that graphene can be used to create such a device that features high percentage optical modulation, optical…

    A few days ago I reported that TDK will show a new STT-MRAM prototype, and now we have some more information and a couple of photos of the new test chip. TDK is showing their first STT-MRAM chip, a 8Mb device, produced on a 8" silicon substrate.  This is the first time TDK exposed their STT-MRAM technology. Those MRAM chips were produced by TDK's Headway Technologies. TDK will not mass poroduce MRAM chips themselves but rather seek a chip-making partner to produce them. But this may take a while: TDK says it could be up to 10 years before the technology matures (earlier reports said TDK…

    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…

His simple response was to ask anyone from the crowd who had never sinned, to throw the first stone. Each one of the accusers slithered away.I tried to imagine. If this incident had happened in the world we are living in today, not only would she have been stoned by the very people who had 'caught' her, each one of them; her captors would most likely also have been her past…

Unfortunately, Cooltek's new case is an exception. Granted, the GT-03 chassis is not the first one that uses SECC steel instead of aluminum, and 5.2 kilos / 11.4 pounds isn't exactly back-breaking, but it still is a bit heavy for this type of case.

Read about it in my next article here Two new ecosystems — which are the truly revolutionary part of the announcement — Apple Pay and HealthKit. I’ll tell you why these will be significant.

    VMWORLD 2014 SAN FRANCISCO: FINAL DAY VMworld does something special for the Press and Bloggers, it reserves several tables near the front of the auditorium with power cords and a special WiFi feed. This makes it easy to take lousy low light photos from one’s iPhone. Having written on Day 1 and Day 2 of VMworld, on the last day we learned that attendees had attended 9,300 labs. And they raised $248,460 through Destination GiveBack. The last day is usually reserved for innovations, last year’s was about robots and 3D printing. This time: People Plus Machines.

    Everybody seems to want to work for gaming studios these days. But not all studios are created equal. For those living in southwestern Ontario, Big Viking Games is certainly among the better choices. The London-born startup, which also has an office in Toronto on Richmond Street, offers perks to its employees that raiding vikings probably never had: hot catered lunches daily, for example.

  • Lenovo Still Wants to Buy BlackBerry and Will Try Again, Source Suggests

    20 Oct 2014 | 2:16 pm
    Apparently Lenovo is still interested in BlackBerry. China's Lenovo could make an offer to acquire the Canadian smartphone maker as early as this week, "a source familiar with the matter" told Benzinga. Lenovo expressed interest in buying the Waterloo-based tech titan last year, but the Canadian government told the Beijing-based computer manufacturer it would not allow a Chinese takeover, citing national security concerns. This time could be different, however, because Lenovo announced the creation of a new company focused on the internet of things, a space which BlackBerry has shown emerging…

The Montreal-born startup was acquired by SFX Entertainment, which is driving the Canadian company's move to the Big Apple. Or rather, the team's move—the company itself will be dismantled at the end of the month. "To focus our energy on all the exciting projects at Beatport, we will be shutting down Listn at the end of the month," said Mike Schmidt, cofounder of Listn.

The latest offering from Comedy Central’s digital arm is Six Guys One Car, which follows the guys from Dormtainment through an unexpected evening. In Six Guys One Car, the members of Dormtainment play fictionalized versions of themselves. The series begins when, after a show, the sextet’s car breaks down.

    Kian Lawley (known as part of YouTube supergroup Our Second Life - aka O2L – and superkian13 to the online video masses) recently took part in a pretty terrifying, yet unforgettable marketing stunt. The Fullscreen star disappeared off all social media for five days to promote the upcoming Universal horror film Ouija (which is certainly a tough feat for a 19-year-old social media star in this entertainment landscape). On October 5, 2014, a video titled “KIANS MISSING” (with over 1.8 million views to date) was posted to Lawley’s YouTube channel at its 2+ million…

The Internet Advertising Revenue Report found revenue from digital video advertising increased to $1.5 billion in the first half of 2014, a 13% increase over the dollar figure from the first half of 2013.

  • What the Bible Does and Doesn’t Say About Technology

    Daniel Faris
    20 Oct 2014 | 7:00 am
    Technology and religion seem almost to exist in separate planes of existence. Fact and faith. Science and superstition. They’re not wholly incompatible, mind you—just difficult to reconcile sometimes. But if we were to turn to the Bible for guidance about the place that technology should occupy in a God-fearing civilization, what would we find? The answer is: not a lot. Prophetic though it may be, the Bible remains relatively silent on the subject of mankind’s technological progress. That is, if you’re looking for a strictly literal commentary. In a more metaphorical sense, we can…

In an effort to avoid the pitfall pictured below, I will probably be doing this again if I find myself trapped in this vicious circle: Thank you, Wrong Hands. Thank you.

Bret Taylor (Facebook's former chief technology officer who left in 2012 to start Quip) says he considered a dislike button but that it was too complicated. While you and I might think to use it in the context of expressing sympathy ("it sucks that your dog is sick"), not everyone would do the same. The main reason, he said, "is that in the context of the social network, the negativity of that button has a lot of unfortunate…

Siri is his best friend - a presence that is patient and funny, nonjudgmental and knowledgeable. For instance, Gus has obsessions with trains and planes. Siri entertains him with facts about them. Gus needs to practice his speech. Because of how she operates, Siri forces him to enunciate. Newman details plenty of other touching examples. "She is also…

Open Payments is the government's site for publishing payments made to doctors and teaching hospitals by drug and medical device manufacturers.

They’ll tell you they invest only in people they’d want to work with.

Anyway, here are Gartners for the next few years (abridged by Broadstuff) 1) By 2018, digital business will require 50 percent less business process workers and 500 percent more key digital business jobs, compared with traditional models. Near-Term Flag: By year-end 2016, 50 percent of digital transformation initiatives will be unmanageable due to lack of portfolio management skills, leading to a measurable negative lost market share. 2)…

    So, Apple got plenty of kudos from security and privacy folks in deciding to encrypt mobile phone data, but over on the desktop side, apparently the message hasn't quite gotten through. Instead, it appears that the latest Mac operation system has the company automatically sending all of your desktop searches back to Apple. These aren't internet searches, but just what you're searching for locally. The function is part of Spotlight search, which was updated with last week’s launch of new Mac computers and Apple’s latest operating system, Yosemite OS X, which also is available for download…

Commercial space ventures are going to be shuttling (or capsule-ing, as the case may be) people to low earth orbit, and some other projects are aiming for more distant journeys. Here are just a few space exploration plans to keep an eye on if you still want to be an astronaut someday.

    The facts are in, thanks to Vice Media and Jason Leopold. Washington, DC police have a Stingray cell tower spoofer and have been using it for several years. The Metropolitan Police Department was an early adopter, but moving too fast cost it about five years of use. Back in 2003, the Metropolitan Police Department (MPD) in Washington, DC was awarded a $260,000 grant from the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to purchase surveillance technology called Stingray — a contraption the size of a suitcase that simulates a cell phone tower and intercepts mobile phone calls and text messages.

And we did another post calling out the "professional journalists" who simply repeated his claims without any skepticism. And, once again (since this comes up every time), I have absolutely no problem with CBS making whatever TV show they want. The problem I have is with O'Brien using the obviously bogus claims to try to build a business on false…
  • Dispute Over Legal Hackers Mark Highlights Why Descriptive Phrases Aren't Valid Trademarks

    Timothy Geigner

    Not all things can be trademarked, and one of the most common reasons a term, word, or phrase is refused protection is if it is purely descriptive. The stock examples of this make sense to us inuitively: a company couldn't trademark "Black Computers" as part of their business, since the term is neither unique nor does it do anything besides simply describing the product. But I think real-world examples of this sort of thing drive the point home even more.

But as companies from engineering firms to retail giants are beginning to learn, tablets such as Apple’s iPad are far from a toy, and much more than a gadget.

    This has happened to all of us –  you hand your smartphone to someone else to show them a picture, and they will eventually start swiping left and right through the gallery. There is really no way to prevent this. Once you hand over your phone, unlocked, to someone else, they can do pretty much anything they want.

    1. You’re Getting Old! is a fascinating website that offers a long list of facts and statistics relating to a person’s lifetime once they enter their date of birth. You get stats like the total number of times the person’s heart has beaten and the number of breathes they have taken in their lifetime, as well as how old they were when some important events occurred. The website also includes a pie chart featuring an approximation of how many people born on that date are currently alive versus dead as well as many more features. The older you are, the more fascinating the stats become. 2.

    Ever downloaded a video from the internet that is barely audible? Fixing the audio volume is a simple matter of demuxing the video file into its constituting video and audio channels, adding a constant gain to the audio channel and then packing both together into a video container. This tutorial will show you how to do that. Years ago, I wrote a similar tutorial showing readers how to increase the volume of the audio channel of a video file using a software called VirtualDub. The method described worked only with AVI files. The new method that I’m going to describe in this tutorial works…

    1. Drowning Simulator: This is an interactive life jacket-awareness website that lets you “experience” drowning. The French website puts you in the shoes of a dude who gets knocked out of the yacht and into the sea. Once you’re in the water, you have to use your mouse to scroll without stopping in order to stay afloat. Eventually, when your finger starts to ache and your scrolling slows down or stops, you sink and die. The game ends with a simple message: “At sea, you tire faster than you think. Whenever you go out to sea, wear your life jacket.” 2. SHRTURL: A prank URL shortening…

  • 5 Tips on Writing an SEO-Friendly Blog Post

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

    Apple officially released OS X Yosemite today, and to mark that occasion - as has become tradition among our people - the only OS X Yosemite review you need, from John Siracusa. OS X and iOS have been trading technologies for some time now. For example, AVFoundation, Apple's modern framework for manipulating audiovisual media, was released for iOS a year before it appeared on OS X. Going in the other direction, Core Animation, though an integral part of the entire iPhone interface, was released first on the Mac. Yosemite's new look continues the pattern; iOS got its visual refresh last year,…

So making the best possible iMac meant making the best possible display. The new 27‑inch iMac with Retina 5K display has four times as many pixels as the standard 27‑inch iMac display. So you experience unbelievable detail. On an unbelievable scale. At a relatively mere $2500 (a dell 5K display will set you back just as much, and that's just a display), this is an amazing machine. It's not useful for me (certainly not at that price point), but…

Also, while this post refers to a golden age, NOTHING in it refers to fringe New Testament apocalyptic theology.

  • Make Screencast Movies of your iPhone or iPad with QuickTime

    20 Oct 2014 | 2:00 am
    Did you know that your Mac ships with a screencasting software that can be used for quickly recording movies of your computer screen? You can record the microphone audio along with the video, there’s an option to show or hide the mouse clicks during the screen recording and the movies can be exported in HD formats. This very-capable app is called QuickTime Player. And it just got better. If you have upgraded your Mac to OS X Yosemite, you can use the same QuickTime Player software to record the screen of your iOS device in 2 easy steps.

    I have almost exhausted my download bandwidth for this billing cycle and, lest you assume anything, I haven’t downloaded any torrents or movies from the Internet. All I have done is updated the Macs to the recently released OS X Yosemite and also downloaded the latest version of Apple iMovie, Keynote and other Mac software. The Mac OS X Yosemite installer is about 5 GB in size and, for some unknown reason, the Apps Store doesn’t always support resumable downloads. So if your Internet connection goes down while the installer is getting downloaded or if there’s a problem…
  • How to Color Alternate Rows in Google Sheets

    Amit Agarwal
    16 Oct 2014 | 7:10 am
    Microsoft Excel and other programs in Microsoft Office provide a handy feature called “Quick Styles” to help you quickly format a selected range as a striped table. The table can have zebra lines meaning alternating rows are formatted with different colors (see example). Google Sheets do not support zebra stripes (yet) but you can use conditional formatting combined with a simple Google Formula to create a formatted table. You can apply alternating colors to both rows and columns in Google Sheets easily. Here’s the trick. Open a Google Sheet and choose Conditional formatting…

    You can only speak and write English so how do you converse with a person in China who writes Mandarin but doesn’t understand a word of English? Google Translate is no doubt a good option but it is going to be tedious for you (and your Chinese friend) to translate each and every sentence manually before sending them through any messenger. How do you break down the language barrier and chat with someone in another country when there’s no ‘common’ language between the two parties? Microsoft is building a version of Skype for that will allow real-time translation for…
  • How to Work Offline in Google Chrome

    Amit Agarwal
    10 Oct 2014 | 1:44 am
    When you open any page inside Google Chrome, it connects to the Internet, fetches the latest version of the page from the server and displays it on your screen. If your computer is offline, Chrome will display an error message with a dinosaur* image saying it is unable to connect to the Internet. Internet Explorer and Firefox offer an offline mode that auto-saves a copy of web pages as you browse the Internet and displays this local copy when you are not connected to the Internet. Thus, if you are offline in a flight, you can still open and read websites that you accessed while your computer…

  • Apple's Yosemite OS shares Spotlight search terms by default

    20 Oct 2014 | 5:30 pm
    Apple is being called out for how it shares desktop and Web searches in its latest desktop operating system, Yosemite.Spotlight, which underwent a rework for Yosemite, indexes desktop files and makes them searchable via keywords. By default, the latest iteration of Spotlight sends those search terms to Apple, in conjunction with Microsoft’s Bing search engine, which Apple says is used to improve Spotlight’s accuracy.If “Location Services” are turned on in Yosemite, a computer’s approximate location is also sent to Apple whenever Spotlight is used. Apple advises users of the data it…

    20 Oct 2014 | 3:10 pm
    The launch of Apple Pay on Monday has brought considerable publicity to a technology that’s already embedded in millions of Android smartphones yet has so far failed to take off. Clunky implementations, lack of widespread acceptance and poor user knowledge have hampered NFC technology, but some in the payments industry are hoping Apple Pay has an impact far beyond iPhone 6 users. “I think without a doubt, Apple has a unique place in the mobile ecosystem, with hardware, software and services,” said James Anderson, senior vice president of emerging payments at MasterCard.

In most cases it will be not only someone else but a person very low in the hierarchy of the company.

  • DNN Tips: GetTab Method without DNN Context

    Baldwin
    11 May 2014 | 4:45 am
    As you know, the simple method GetTab(int tabid) was obsolete and has been replaced by GetTab(ByVal TabId As Integer, ByVal PortalId As Integer, ByVal ignoreCache As Boolean). If you want to call the new method, we have to pass the additional parameter “PortalId”. In common,  the object PortalSettings can be easy to get with DNN context, such as special dnn module & page; however, it may be inaccessible in some sceneries, such as separate aspx page or handler. Then is there any way to get the correct tab info with this new method? Now there is a simple trick to do it with passing…

    The Evangelist Marketing Institute -- Alex L. Goldfayn -- Techniques For Revenue Growth

  • Two Parallel Tracks

    Alex Goldfayn
    13 Oct 2014 | 9:54 pm
    My definition of marketing is the systematic communication of your value to people who can buy it. When my clients launch their revenue growth programs, they execute two parallel tracks of this kind of communication: One-to-one: This track features your sales people and customer service people talking with customers and prospects, one at a time. They might ask the “did-you-know” question; or communicate a testimonial; or ask for a referral. It doesn’t matter what they do, so long as they take one action per day, which requires 30 seconds or, at most, 15 minutes. (If you…
  • The Hand-Written Note

    Alex Goldfayn
    6 Oct 2014 | 5:15 am
    Earlier this year, I received a hand-written note. It’s the only such note I’ve received over the last year. I read it in 15 seconds, and put it down. This was about four months ago. It’s still on my desk. I cannot bring myself to throw it away. I was done with it the moment I finished reading it, but there it sits, a visual daily reminder of the time the good person took to write me personally. In an era where anyone can tweet or post or email anything to anyone at any time, it is easier than ever to stand out from the crowd. The personal communication is increasingly rare.

List one product, service, event or opportunity now. What can you do that you’re not doing now that would grow your sales the easiest, fastest and most? List at least one behavior now. Which high potential prospects (who did not buy) have you communicated with this year who you can revisit in the fourth quarter? List three now. Finally, give me one action, activity or event…
  • 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.

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!

    HTC has brought a plethora of devices to India as it aims to boost sales in all the segments. Most of these devices have been announced internationally so their arrival was more than expected.

Other than the camera, the specifications of the M8 Eye are exactly like the M8, but the biggest surprise is the price, as the M8 Eye is priced at Rs 38,990, much lower than the HTC M8 with Ultra Pixel…

    Apple announced new iPads yesterday at Cupertino. The overall event felt a little underwhelming and as expected the new iPads are thinner, faster and has touch ID. Agreed that iPads are already fantastic products, but if we are being objective, Apple has not really done anything in terms of significantly different for the product lineup since the days of Steve Jobs. The star of the show was the Retina iMacs which bring a 5k display for about $2499. The new iPads will be available around next month and will include the new gold version to go along with the lineup of the iPhones. Also, this…

While Apple did let slip yesterday the exact specifications of the new iPad and the iPad Mini, there was nothing in the graphic out of the ordinary or stuff that we did not expect. The tablet does have the new Touch ID, as well as bumped up specifications and performance enhancements, and will come with iOS 8 out of the box.

    The first thing that comes to mind when you read wireless charging is that of a phone magically charging the moment you’re in a particular zone; just like Wi-Fi. Sadly that’s not how wireless charging works in the present day. You need a charging base on which you need to place a wireless charging compatible phone and it starts charging. It works on the principle of inductive charging — where in the charging base and the phone has coils to transmit energy without having to connect any cable to the phone.

    The announcement of the iPad Air 2 and iPad Mini 3 would certainly sate the appetite of tablet enthusiasts, but those who prefer finer units more and love viewing high resolution content Apple had other offerings in its kitty. For them, the tech giant has announced a new model of iMac desktop computer that will put high display aficionados at the edge of their seats because according to Apple, the new iMac possesses a resolution that is crisper even than the 4K resolution.

    After Google decided to incorporate powerful chipsets in its Nexus 6 and Nexus 9 devices (the Nexus 6 runs on the Snapdragon 805, while the Nexus 9 comes equipped with NVIDIA’s Tegra K1), Samsung has added another chipset to its line–up.

The Korean manufacturer has named its latest chipset as Exynos 7 and the primary difference between the Exynos 5433 and the Exynos 7 is that the latter will support the 64 bit architecture.

In the past, we have setup spreadsheets and looked into other apps, but nothing did what we needed quite like this.

As with most iOS OTA (Over the Air Updates), we expect Apple's servers to get slammed for the first day or so making downloads take longer.

      The news media sector has become heavily dependent on traffic from Facebook and Google. A reliance now dangerously close to addiction.

Hold an iPad mini in one hand and an iPad Air 2 in the other —  they seem to weigh about the same. This is an illusion: The 341 gram mini is lighter than the 444 gram Air 2 (.75 vs .98 pounds; both with cellular equipment), but the Air 2 is almost impossibly thin. At 6.1 mm, the Air 2 makes the mini’s 7.4 mm feel bulky. The iPad Air 2 also has an improved screen, a better camera, enhanced…

Decisive prioritization will make a big difference.  Below is a list – by no means exhaustive – of products and services to be found in most media organizations. Their targets include both individual customers (I use the term on purpose because it goes well beyond the notion of readers), as well as corporate clients.

Early in 2012, PayPal’s President, Scott Thompson, abruptly left the company to become CEO of Yahoo. During his four-year tenure at the eBay subsidiary, Thompson had doubled PayPal’s user population and increased payment volume by 26% per year to over $120B. So why did he leave? eBay CEO John Donahoe put it this way: “Scott wanted to be a CEO, and that’s great. He felt the opportunity wasn’t going to come along again. He had the best non-CEO…

    Abstract architecture photography is different from regular architecture photography. It offers a new perspective. It allows the viewer’s imagination run wild. You no longer see the full picture. Instead, you see a small piece of a much bigger puzzle. I guess you can sort of call this a tease. The artist takes a photo and lets you decide for yourself what you see and feel. This is the exact reason why I love abstract architecture photography. You have no surrounding context to help you formulate an educated thought about the photo at hand.

    19 Oct 2014 | 10:55 pm
    With the ICD-10 compliance date fast approaching, many providers and medical coders continue to be plagued by doubts and ambiguities related to the new coding system. It is important that they obtain a clear view regarding ICD-10 and the features that distinguish it, as well as the government’s stand regarding its implementation. Successful ICD-10 implementation demands considerable training and education for clinicians, coders and others within the healthcare fraternity that is associated with the revenue cycle. Flawless transition to the new coding system also requires specific and…

    Is the Chupacabra real? The video below explains the possible species connections the Chupacabra could have. For example, is it a rat/kangaroo mix? Or what? Is the Chupacabra a new species all together? Is it a cross between two species?Many of the sightings that are hyped in the media are always proven false. That doesn't mean the Chupacabra isn't real. Nature can do weird things, and the idea of strange mutations isn't a crazy one. Until caught, the Chupacabra will remain reclusive, and mythological. The truth is out there.

    Researchers from a remote part of Siberia claim to have recorded real sounds from hell. They drilled a hole roughly 14 kilometers deep into earth's crust. The researchers noted an unusual amount of heat coming from the hole. After dropping ultra-sensitive microphones into the hole--to measure the earth's movements--they discovered strange feedback coming into the mics. The video below is a sample of what they recorded.

With that information, a hacker can view users contacts, photos, messages and personal information stored in the cloud. As of last night, the Chinese firewall is blocking all local connections to iCloud.com, redirecting those connections to a dummy site designed to look exactly like Apple's login page.

Last year BAAF was able to match just over 1,000 children thanks to its supporters, including the efforts of all 1E staff. National Adoption Week 2014 takes place from 3-9 November, and this year the main focus is on keeping brothers and sisters together (where this is believed to be in the best interest of the children in question), so BAAF will be asking all their supporters…

    In my pre-sales role, when explaining the technical aspect of 1E Nomad, I’m often asked about the impact Nomad has on the end user’s personal computer. Remember, the entire premise is to leverage the existing computers in the estate to facilitate downloading and distribution of Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager (SCCM) content of all kinds. Being concerned about the possible adverse impact this may impart on the users of those machines is a natural concern. Simply saying “trust me, they won’t even know it’s there!” is not an adequate response. This article is intended…

    Would-be entrepreneurs often look for that aha moment for their next great idea. Founder of Jolt Sensor Ben Harvatine ’12 could have done without his. Harvatine’s moment came as the result of a serious knock to the head during wrestling practice at MIT. “Between dehydration and repeated knocks to the head, I didn’t know why I was dizzy,” he shares. Though he had suffered concussions before, this one left him feeling sick for months after. “I mostly hid in my room with the lights off. I couldn’t handle light and noises,” he says. Several months after the injury, Harvatine took…

    When I was 13 years old Monty Python released the movie "The Life of Brian". What a pain! All through my teenage years fans of the movie, and there were a lot in England, would walk up to me and shout " Brian, he's not the messiah he is a very naughty boy". (If you've not seen the movie you really should). Trust me on this after the tenth time it really isn't very funny. The closing scene of the movie is the song " Always look on the bright side of life!"  It's a noble aim and is analogous to the concept of the glass being half full instead of half empty. Always look for the positives…

    Yesterday was the Jewish Holy Day of Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement, a day of remembrance, repentance, confession and fasting. It is unique in that it is almost universally observed, even by the most secular of Jews for whom it might be the only day of the year that they attend a service. Central to Yom Kippur is the Al Chet prayer where we are asked to consider the sins we have committed intentionally or unintentionally, what are our sins of commission and our sins of omission and what have we done inadvertently by doing nothing at all. The most important thing is that I am asked to think…

It was a snap decision and truth be told if we had stopped to think about how much work lay ahead of us in the coming months I suspect we might not have been in such a rush. We were greatly helped at the time by Eben Moglen of the Software Freedom Law Centre and I believe we were their first "clients".

There’s nothing quite like a really good video game console.  Sure, you can’t really dispute the ultimate flexibility (or possibilities) offered through PC gaming, but when it comes to simple and effective plug-and-play entertainment, where you know “for sure” that you’ll be able to load up that new title and it will definitely work (with little to no glitches, bugs or finagling required).  That’s always pretty much been the draw of the console market – its user-friendliness and overall usability.  Of…
  • Exciting Tech Gadgets Coming in 2015

    18 Oct 2014 | 4:53 pm
    Technology seems to be growing by leaps and bounds, the last decade or so seeming gigantic advances within the consumer electronics market.  The truth is, we never know what exciting things are just around the corner, but by looking at data from the periphery we can often make logical, educated guesses on where things might be headed.  The following products and concepts offer a glimpse into what might be headed our way in 2015.  Let’s get started, shall we? See-through / holographic phones?   It should come as no surprise that most of the research in mobile phone technology is in the…
  • What’s new at Google? …here’s looking at the Nexus device line

    17 Oct 2014 | 5:55 pm
    Say what you will about them, but Google is always at the forefront, of well…nearly everything you can think of.  Such appears to be the case with their ”Nexus” device line which encapsulates not only a phone and tablet, but also an entertainment / player hub as well.  What is the ultimate purpose of all this, you ask?   How is it supposed to make everything better, you might be wondering?  Each one of these offerings is Android-powered of course and will feature an upcoming OS update.  “Android Lollipop” is the cloak and dagger phrase that’s being passed around, and…

    To take a page from the vehicular vernacular….vroom, vroom!  That’s right, folks, Evolution Studios’ much anticipated “DriveClub” has finally pulled into the starting grid, try to contain yourselves.   The real question of course is – does it meet or exceed all the hype surrounding it?  To put it simply, yes it does.  Definitely… Of course, DriveClub isn’t your daddy’s flashy, bombastic racer.  Instead, it is a carefully conceived and executed racing experience that feels, well…”measured”.  In other words, if you were expecting to encounter yet another balls to…

  • Getting Value From Your Data Series: Who Is Your Target Customer?

    Mary Ludloff
    15 Oct 2014 | 5:41 pm
    By Mary Ludloff and Marilyn Craig Welcome back to the second post in our series on how to get value from your data. As we stated in a previous post: “Data, without the proper use of analytics, is meaningless. If data is the new oil, think of analytics as the oil drills—you need both to be successful.” Of course, getting to “success” is not easy as anyone involved in an analytics project will tell you. This series walks you through our methodology on what it takes—from inception to proof of concept to implementation and deployment—to navigate project pitfalls.
  • Getting Value From Your Data Series: The Road May Be Rocky But It’s Well Worth the Effort!

    Marilyn Craig
    30 Sep 2014 | 5:06 pm
    By Mary Ludloff and Marilyn Craig Unless you’ve been asleep for the past couple of years, you, like us, have heard this phrase again and again:  Data is the new oil.  It certainly sounds great but what exactly does it mean? Here’s our take: Getting the most value out of your data can make you better at what you do as well as enable you to do more with what you have. In other words, there’s unrealized value in those data silos that all companies have. But make no mistake: the road to realizing data value is paved with good intentions and often times, poor execution and results. Today,…
  • Lessons Learned from the Google Flu Tracker—Why We Need More Than Just Data

    Mary Ludloff
    9 Apr 2014 | 7:15 pm
    By Marilyn Craig and Mary Ludloff We read an interesting paper and post about Google Flu Trends (GFT) and its foibles last week. The paper points out a couple of lessons that those of us living in the big data analytics world have learned the hard way but the dangers are worth revisiting as tools like ours (AnalyticsPBI for Azure) begin to move big data analytics into the mainstream of organizational practices. After all, our tool (and others like it) makes it easy and even fun for analytics junkies to use all those available zettabytes of data and answer questions that they’ve long…
  • Reporting, Analytics, and Big Data: A Continuous Feedback Loop to Drive Better Decision-Making

    Mary Ludloff
    2 Mar 2014 | 3:07 pm
    By Marilyn Craig A recent conversation with a client reminded me that no matter how crazy and exciting the Big Data world gets, it is still critical to understand what your goals are and where you are in the process of reaching those goals. Having a good foundation in “what’s important” is critical before you jump into the wild world of Big Analytics. For example, in big data (well, actually all data but I digress) “Reporting” and “Analytics” are very different functions. But I often find our customers and prospects grappling with how to distinguish one from the other and as a…

    By Mary Ludloff I am, and always have been, a glass half-full kind of gal. In fact, way back in September 2011 when Terence and I published our book on Privacy and Big Data, I was far more optimistic than he was on the future of privacy—of course, it’s easy to sound optimistic when your co-author states that privacy is dead. (And yes, we are still working on our book update but we do have day jobs and a significant release in the works so it is slow going but going it is.) At that time, those in the “digital privacy know” characterized our book as a decent overview. Our intent at the…

  • Network Management: Still a ‘Must-Have’ for Enterprise IT

    Jim Frey
    7 Oct 2014 | 9:23 am
    It’s sometimes difficult to differentiate between hype and reality when it comes to topics such as cloud, ITaaS, SDN, DevOps, hybrid this and hybrid that. But there are a few certainties in the IT universe and one of them is that IT doesn’t function if all of the pieces can’t talk to one another, and that means the network needs to be rock solid. Some of that is under the control of enterprise IT teams as internal network infrastructure, but some of it isn’t, such as WAN or Internet. Because connectivity is so essential, no one questions the need for making sure the network is healthy…
  • Citrix Stakes Software-Defined Ground; Network Remains Critical to Success

    Jim Frey
    26 Sep 2014 | 8:41 am
    Last week, I attended a Citrix analyst relations summit program to learn about the company’s direction and strategy.  While the main-tent program was longer on vision than it was on execution details, there were some aspects of the proceedings that I found compelling. First off, there weren’t a lot of net new things being introduced, other than some roadmaps shared under NDA and a truly cool multi-station mobile work experience demo. But that’s ok.  Too often, tech companies feel compelled to forever be pushing “something new,” when in reality IT pros need vendors to stick to…

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

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

    Jim Frey contributed to this blog post. On Wednesday, August 6, 2014, F5 Networks held an analyst summit at the company’s tech center in NYC. It was a great opportunity to catch up and see what was new and where the company is headed. The company appears to be enjoying a bit of a renaissance, looking to redefine its role in the data center as virtualization makes headway into the network domain under the banner of SDN. While true production SDN remains in its infancy, with no single approach emerging to solve all the ills of the network world, there is no debating that programmability will…

    It sounds obvious to spend your social budget to please valuable fans, doesn’t it? So why aren’t we doing so? It looks like we are shooting in the blind, meanwhile complaining that the ROI of social media is poor. Fortunately, it’s possible to learn who your valuable fans are and what they appreciate. Once you are aware of that, the magic begins. During infoShare 2014 (22-23 May) in Gdansk we will discuss this topic by sharing our concerns and experiences with today’s social media practices.

Unfortunately, when talking to marketing managers I often hear they don’t know whether their investment really paid off. Basically this means it probably didn’t or they just don’t have any idea. Fact is that many marketing managers don’t know how to value their social media investment. They are happy that they managed to increase their follower base, but don’t know if this had any impact on their brand awareness, engagement, sales results, etc. The…

    This evening I had the pleasure to meet with the Agile community in Tri-City, Agile3M. After several discussions around working in an Agile way they were wondering how to solve the contracting with an external client. Honestly, this is a rather challenging topic. Based on mutual trust it’s possible to reach an agreement, but in case trust is lacking, it’s going to be a long, hard road. It’s a matter of give and take Working in an Agile way has in my opinion many advantages and increasingly research is showing this as well. But this doesn’t mean it’s easy. I would…

    The key to successful collaboration is communication. In a networked world with email, texting, messenger apps, and being able to reach anyone anywhere we can think that we are communicating when we really are not communicating effectively. Effective communication takes teamwork, organization, and planning. And when you can’t get all your teams and team members in the same room, effective communication can take a little more effort.

    Would you rather be a spender or saver? You are a saver if you are a chronic budgeter and keep record of your spending habit. Savers are likely to have a long-term outlook that likely includes smart retirement planning.  Savers tend to be naturally patient and more responsible, they hold back on giving or using money and have trouble spending. Others prefer to get what you want, when you want it. Spenders are spontaneous and have less holding them back. Some people love to spend but responsibility. spenders can make impulsive decisions and end up with nothing to show for their hard…

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.

  • The Case for Incremental Differentiation

    Brad Bane
    15 Oct 2014 | 11:37 am
    Branding is a lot like middle school. You want to stand out, you want to be your own person – but you only want the “right” people to notice. So you change your hair style…slightly. You maybe try a new brand of clothing, one that looks the same as the old brand. You vow to raise your hand more in class, but not enough to become the teacher’s pet. This came to mind when we were discussing the “Share a Coke” campaign (the one where they put people’s names and cutesy words like “Legend” and “BFF” and all kinds of things that grownups never say to one another on the cans…

    I recently heard a story on Ted Radio about Alice Stewart . Alice was a physician in England in the 1950’s and the youngest fellow at the time to be elected to the college of physicians. Alice was an epidemiologist specializing in social medicine and the effects of radiation on health. She wanted to solve big problems and the one she choose to try to solve early in her career was the alarming rate of childhood cancers. She liked to study patterns and did research by polling mothers of children who had developed cancer. It was a radical notion at the time to think that mothers would be…
  • On Concept Writing: How Consumers Consume Concepts

    Paul Crowe
    1 Oct 2014 | 11:45 am
    We spend a lot of time honing our concepts, making sure that the language is just right before going into a quantitative test. But how many of us have thought about how respondents (i.e., consumers) actually consume concepts? In this article, we’ll take a look at some R&D conducted by Ipsos InnoQuest that leveraged eye tracking to understand how consumers read concepts – and discuss the implications for when you’re writing concepts. Follow Their Eyes Without further ado, here are the results. What is shown is a “view order” analysis which indicates the most typical path which…

    You know how it always happens that as soon as you learn a new word, you hear it everywhere? I mean everywhere until the point where you think to yourself, “how have I gone so long without knowing what this meant?” Lately, that’s how I’ve been feeling with a topic instead of a word. That topic is geolocation, and once I started to look into it, I’ve realized it’s EVERYWHERE – and with good reason! Today, most of us carry around personal tracking devices. No, I’m not talking about Minority Report: I’m talking about our smart phones. And while it may be scary to think about,…

    Earlier this spring, Newell Rubbermaid announced the opening of a new state-of-the-art Design Center in Michigan, joining an “exclusive club of design-driven companies that recognize design and innovation as a competitive advantage”. Design thinking and design-led innovation philosophies and methods have been gaining significant traction over the last few years , propelled by the likes of IDEO and the opening of the d.school at Stanford. However, nothing says this has gone from the fringes to the mainstream like a manufacturer of curtain rods, trash cans, pens, food storage containers and…

  • How to change IE Spelling language in Windows 8

    Thomas
    31 Aug 2014 | 12:35 pm
    When I first switched from Windows 7 to Windows 8. One of the first things I noticed was that even I was running Internet Explorer 11 on both operating systems, spelling control was not working the same way in IE 11 on Windows 8/Windows 8.1. In Windows 7 I was used to right click on a misspelled word and chance the language in case I was writing in another language in my default. In Windows 8 that is not the possible. My default language is Danish, but I often write in English as well. It toke me quite some time to figure out how I could get it to work in Windows 8, because I think it is a…

  • ‘Golden Triangle’ Disappears As Search-User Behavior Evolves

    Dave Paul
    14 Oct 2014 | 1:16 pm
    A cornerstone of SEO has always been the “golden triangle,” the tiny, vaunted piece of real estate on the search engine results page (SERP) where users are most likely to notice your site. But new research shows that the golden triangle has lost its hold—and that users aren’t scanning search results the way they used to. The golden triangle was discovered as far back as 2005. That was when SEO researchers first used “eye-tracking” studies to create a heat map of the parts of the screen that a user actually looks at. Those studies showed that users start in the top left and read…

    How does your law firm handle SEO? For many firms, getting ranked on Google has been an uphill battle, one made worse by SEO companies that overpromise and under-deliver. The problem is that Attorneys and firm managers don’t always have a working knowledge of SEO tactics, which means they end up relying entirely on the advice of their SEO agency—often without knowing what good SEO looks like. That’s why EverSpark created My SEO Blueprint – Legal Edition: Top 50 Tips to Rank Your Law Firm on Google. This in-depth guide shows your firm the top 50 steps you can take—with or without an…

This is a big change. Almost since it was first launched, Google+ has been baked into Gmail and other Google accounts. In other words, if you created a Google account of any kind, you were automatically added to the social network whether you liked it or not. A lot of people didn’t like it.

  • IBM's Ginni Rometty Just Confessed To A Huge Failure — And It Might Be The Best Thing For Her (IBM)

    Julie Bort
    20 Oct 2014 | 5:48 pm
    On Monday, IBM CEO Ginni Rometty quietly but firmly stopped the madness that had been a noose around her neck since she took office. As part of IBM's disappointing quarterly earnings, she said the company is not going to hit $20 earnings per share in 2015, as IBM has been promising for years. This was known internally as Roadmap 2015. This wasn't a promise made by Rometty, but by her predecessor, Sam Palmisano, a couple of years before Rometty took the helm in 2012. Palmisano was doubling down on a tactic that had worked for him. In 2007, he said he was going to deliver earnings of at least…

    Audi's RS7 driverless concept car turned its first hot laps on a German racetrack over the weekend. The event was so popular that the live broadcast crashed Audi's website.  The RS7 equipped with Audi "Piloted Driving" technology uses a series of sensors, cameras, and GPS to precisely maneuver the car — accurate down to the centimeter, the carmaker claims. This is no Prius. Audi mounted its driverless technology inside of a 560hp sports sedan, powered by a twin-turbocharged V8. The test car, nicknamed "Bobby" — perhaps after former Indy 500 winners Bobby Rahal or Bobby Unser — took to…

    To the surprise of few Apple watchers, the company delivered its third straight quarter of declining iPad sales The reason why sales are shrinking appears to be pretty obvious. There isn't a good reason to own three Apple gadgets — a Mac, iPhone, and iPad — when a combination of just two of them will do. And now that iPhones come with larger screens, there's even less of a reason to buy an iPad along with it. This is not to say the iPad is a bad tablet. It's a wonderful tablet, the best you can buy.

Closer inspection revealed that it was an anti-virus warning that signaled the computer had been infected by a Virus (almost 2 days ago!!). As a techie, I quickly deduced 3 things from the screen. One, the computer was running Windows, and probably an outdated version of Windows. Two, the computer had been infected with Conficker–Conficker was a pretty infamous threat, back in 2008!! And yet, here we are, at Malaysia’s most prestigious airport, and we have a…

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…

    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…

    Law offices tend to be fairly conservative when it comes to technology.

    Kingston HyperX Fury 240GB SSD- an SSD with the “HyperX” branding after a very long time. The last Kingston HyperX series SSD was HyperX 3K. Other than that, Kingston have been releasing few V series SSDs here and there. So, we should expect good ‘mainstream’ performance now that it comes with HyperX, or so we would like to think. Afterall, that’s the idea of having  series within the branding to differentiate between the products. But many things changed. Those were the times practically every flash NAND centric brand that doesn’t make its own NAND or controller was slapping…

    Thanks to mini-ITX motherboards, AIO coolers and low-profile CPU coolers, modular/semi-modular power supplies and even SSDs, case manufacturers can make significantly smaller-yet-space efficient case designs. CM Elite 130 is a case that meant to be small and compliment the mini/low profile components that it can house within. One has to be honest, case makers tend to keep such cases up for a premium price. Its another story when such premium could be justified.

    Earned media mentions are the golden ring for many PR programs.  Getting great coverage in a key publication remains a key objective for many public relations campaigns and with good reason – traditional media outlets continue to wield outsize influence despite flagging revenues and diminished paid subscribers.

Earned media mentions have real utility for brands beyond PR’s clip book. When a prospect is in the discovery phase, they’re open to a broad scope of…

    Here’s a quick little tip for anyone looking for a simple way to find out who is hosting a particular website. Trying to figure out who hosts a web site can be an annoying task if you’re trying to go through the usual channels by searching a WHOIS database, etc. A lot of times you’ll only get the company or person that registered the domain name, but not the actual hosting company. Who is Hosting This? is a very simple web service whose sole purpose is to tell you the company that is hosting a website. I really like this because most of the other online web site checking…

    Are you looking for a way to move your email account from Gmail to Outlook or Yahoo to Gmail? Outside of the major email providers, if you’re still stuck with your college email address or an email from your local ISP like Cox or BellSouth, switching to Gmail, Yahoo or Outlook.com is a good idea because you’ll get a lot more features, better security and more support. Also, some colleges and universities eventually shutdown student email addresses after a certain time period, so switch before you lose everything. You can try to perform a migration yourself and there are tons of…

    Aside from providing a medium for knowledge and a gateway to discussion with people from places you’ll probably never visit, the Internet is also hailed as a bastion of anonymity. While you may get accounts in places that require full disclosure of many personal details, there are also many services on the Web that seem to offer some level of anonymity. The problem with this latter statement is that the level of anonymity promised by many services isn’t exactly equal to what is actually offered.

    In Windows, while you can create guest user accounts to give limited access to other non-administrator users, you might not be aware that these guest user accounts still have ample privileges to modify the system. In Windows 8, Microsoft introduced a new feature called “Assigned Access” (also known as “Kiosk mode”), and using it allows an administrator to lock down a user to only using a single specific modern application. This feature is much like a Kiosk and comes without any risk for compromising Windows security.Note: Assigned Access feature is only available in…

After all, it is a fast-moving, high-turnover market and planned obsolescence is how it is kept moving. Being high turnover means new models with new features can be brought to market and readily consumed by users conditioned to want the latest and greatest. This is not necessarily a bad thing.

In fact, it first evolved in ancient armoured placoderm fishes called antiarchs 385 million years ago. Fossils of the antiarch Microbrachius dicki show males with large bony L-shaped claspers for transferring sperm, whereas females bore small paired bones to help dock the male organs into position.

  • Linux distro Ubuntu 15.04 gets its name -- Vivid Vervet

    Brian Fagioli
    20 Oct 2014 | 5:25 pm
    Ubuntu has become one of the most popular and influential distributions of all time. It is easy to use, well designed and has a large and helpful community. Despite its general greatness, it uses a rather silly naming convention, based on sequential letters. That letter is used in the start of two consecutive words; the first being an adjective and the second being an animal. Is it fun? I suppose. Actually, it isn't too different than Android, which also uses sequential letters, but for yummy sweets. Today, Mark Shuttleworth, Canonical CEO, announces the latest name, for the upcoming 15.04.
  • Forget Mighty Mouse... forget Mickey Mouse... meet Music Mouse! [Review]

    Sometimes a device that does a single job just doesn’t cut the mustard. See those speakers cluttering up valued space on your desk? Be gone foul cones; your services are required no more! Are we foregoing music? Not a bit of it! We are switching to a wireless mouse with an integrated Bluetooth speaker! At least we are if it turns out to be any good... Things don’t get off to a great start. The Seenda IBT-C04 Music Mouse looks reasonable enough, if slightly retro; but in the hand it's big and angular. There is a slight nod to ergonomics and even a slightly rubberized grip area where your…
  • XCom takes advantage of Marriott's Wi-Fi debacle, issues security alert

    Alan Buckingham
    20 Oct 2014 | 11:15 am
    If you happened to miss it, then some background information is in order. The Marriott hotel chain, or actually one branch of it, was caught red-handed blocking Wi-Fi hotspots that its guests brought along on their trip. The hotel giant claimed security reasons, but people didn't buy the excuse. More importantly, the FCC didn't bite on it either. It seems the Gaylord Opryland Hotel would have preferred customers to pay the exorbitant rates it charges for internet access. The Federal Communications Commission saw things differently and slapped the hotel with a $600,000 fine. While the chain…
  • Enterprise storage: Coping with 30 years of data growth

    Warren Reid
    20 Oct 2014 | 11:12 am
    Over the past three decades, the storage industry has changed significantly, not just in terms of evolving technologies, but also with regard to the volumes of data we produce and therefore the amount of storage we require. Today, we are accustomed to talking about terabytes and even exabytes when it comes to our data storage needs. But 30 years ago things were very different. If we consider the capture of CCTV images in the 1980s, image quality was much lower than it is today. Surveillance technology, for example, created low-resolution images, which with the introduction of the VCR, were…

While writing patents, generating blog posts, and authoring user documentation are not among the more glamorous tasks I do as an entrepreneur and CTO, they are all necessary to building my company and supporting my customers. They also share one thing in common: they leverage a writing skill I honed in college through a creative writing minor. There are countless people in the world who have made a difference in the…
  • For Sale: Antique Cloud Instances

    I’d like to let you know about a unique one-time opportunity. Starting today I’m making available for sale a few reserved instances from my personal cloud collection. The items include antique and previously owned m1.small and m1.large reservations that are in mint condition and fully enabled for running any version of Linux. While some may wonder why one would want to run an instance in the m1 family when there are cheaper and higher performance instances available from AWS, I know you as a cloud collector will understand their unique appeal. With these reservations, you can launch a…
  • Finding the Minimum Viable Feature (MVF)

    Joe Kinsella
    27 Sep 2014 | 8:23 am
    I like to think that if software development had Ten Commandments, the first would be: Thou shalt not build something that doesn’t matter. There is no more profound waste of talent and effort than to have engineers build software that doesn’t get used by customers, or add-value elsewhere in a product. Unfortunately it happens all the time in both small and large companies. The result is a lost opportunity, a reduction in market momentum, and usually disappointment from everyone involved. My Early Mistakes When I started CloudHealth, I drove a Lean process to build out my early Minimum…

    Samsung may have issued a profit warning last week, but it is not all doom and gloom at the South Korean tech giant as they also claim that they have developed a 60GHz 802.11ad WiFi technology that offers speeds five times faster than current gear. Current WiFi tech uses the 2.4GHz and 5GHz spectrums with speeds of up to 866Mbps (108MB/s), but Samsung’s 802.11ad gear makes use of the currently unlicensed 60GHz spectrum, which means speeds of up to 4.6Gbps (575MB/s) are possible. These speeds would mean downloading a full HD movie would only take a few seconds. The 802.11ad standard and…
