  • iOS Insecurity - Designed by Apple?

    The long-held belief that Android is the least secure of mobile OSes was shattered by security researcher and expert iOS hacker Jonathan Zdziarski over the weekend. He unveiled a host of iOS vulnerabilities, the scope of which was staggering: undocumented services that bypass backup encryption and can be accessed both via USB and wirelessly; a means to access all data encrypted with data protection if the device has not been rebooted since the user's PIN was last entered; and a packet sniffer that can be monitored remotely over WiFi.

    Scientists have already successfully coaxed stem cells into becoming red blood cells, which could be used to create "man-made" blood for transfusion. Red blood cells, however, aren't the only component of human blood. Now, researchers at Harvard-affiliated Brigham and Women’s Hospital have also created functional human platelets, using a bioreactor that simulates the medium in which blood cells are naturally produced – bone marrow. ..

    Qplay seemed like it everything it needed to succeed. The small TV streaming adapter had Mike Ramsay and Jim Barton, the founders of the TiVo DVR set-top box, driving it. So it had a well-respected leadership team, a unique selling point and a raft of investors. What it didn’t have, however, is enough interest. And so Qplay swallowed a big piece of humble pie on Saturday and announced its demise. After less than six months on the market, the service is shutting down on July 25. Qplay offers several lessons for entrepreneurs and developers who think they’ve…

    Buick owners enjoying their car’s built-in LTE in a photo provided by GM Last week, General Motors invited me to a press event at which it showed off some new Buicks. Normally, such events involve driving new cars. But when we hit the road during this one, I willingly sat in the back seat and fooled around with my phone and tablet–because the primary purpose of the event was to demonstrate the 4G LTE broadband and Wi-Fi hotspot features built into the cars. Across its brands, GM is being particularly aggressive about rolling out in-vehicle LTE connectivity. Most Buick models,…
  • A Celebration of James Garner’s Polaroid Commercials

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

    A DreamWorks Animation artist works on How to Train Your Dragon 2 using Premo Mr. Peabody and Sherman, the computer-animated movie which DreamWorks Animation released in March is–of course–the tale of a dog and a boy who go traveling back in time. So in a way, it’s appropriate that the proprietary software which the studio used to animate it, Emo, had a lot of history behind it. Emo’s origins go back to the 1980s, an era in which computer graphics were very different than they are today, and DreamWorks didn’t even exist. It was created by Pacific Data Images, the…

    Our general obsession with all the latest technology and gadgets is a relatively natural phenomena that reflects our interest in keeping up with what’s new. Unfortunately, it also tends to imply that older technology isn’t very good, with value considered to be roughly inversely proportional to the age of the device. While in some cases, that sentiment is justified; there are instances where that just isn’t true. Technology-based products have been around long enough now that I think you can make the argument for some true technology gems from the past—vintage tech that was not only…

  • Anniversary For iPhone Offers A Moment Of Nostalgia In The Age Of Disposable Photos

    Sarah Perez

     An app called Anniversary offers a new twist on remembering the past via your photo and video memories. Instead of posting to a social network like Facebook, Anniversary lets you share your content with a friend on some future date of your choosing. The idea is to surprise your friends with old photos, instead of just nostalgically reviewing them on your own. Thanks to smartphones, we… Read More

    8 Jul 2014 | 11:21 pm
    By: Hillel Fuld (@hilzfuld) Listen up, folks. I am not a big fan of product leaks or Apple rumors. I mean, we all know that prior to every big Apple launch of any kind, the rumor mill goes into high gear. How often are those rumors accurate? Not very often… But then there are some sources that you just know are reliable. Marques Brownlee is one such source. And this video of the iPhone 6 display is obviously legit so can we just put that behind us and discuss the topic at hand? Great. According to many sources, the iPhone will introduce the first display on a mobile phone made out of…
  • The One Android Flaw that Kept me on iPhone but Is Now Fixed in Android L

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

Sounds like another silly Twitter post trying to tell me that something as simple and trivial as a Twitter favorite is really a secret marketing tool. Sounds crazy, I know. I hope you change your mind after hearing me out. Allow me to begin my opening statements with a question. What, in your opinion, is the difference between sales and marketing? After all, both sales and marketing have the same ultimate goal, to encourage you to buy/use/adopt a product/concept/service, right? I mean if marketing does…

    17 Jun 2014 | 11:03 pm
    By: Hillel Fuld (@hilzfuld) Before we jump in, let me answer the obvious question. “Why have you been meeting Israeli startups every day for years?” Good question. Thought you’d never ask. As my role of CMO at Zula, I am fortunate to work for a company that gets it. The company understands what too many companies still do not, that push marketing, self promotion, and spammy aggressive tactics simply do not work. The way to market a brand today is to provide value, whether that value is in the form of content, thought leadership, or just some help opening the right doors. I know, I…

Not only is it somewhat of a rant, and if you follow me online, you must have realized that I am highly allergic to negativity, but it is also about annoying things people do on the social web. So much has been said about it and again, nothing I dislike more than repeating what has already been said… Having said all that, this is, sadly, an important post for too many people.

  • Seals Use Offshore Wind Farms as Hunting Grounds

    22 Jul 2014 | 11:45 am
    Offshore wind farms may become seal hunting grounds, new research shows. As the number of offshore wind farms continues to grow, the farms may affect both seals and their prey, the finding suggests. However, it remains uncertain whether the effects will be helpful or harmful, scientists added. Wind farms are banks of wind turbines that harness the wind's energy to produce electricity. Those located offshore can take advantage of mighty coastal winds to generate substantial amounts of power in a renewable manner. For instance, Denmark currently gets about 30% of its electricity from wind…

  • Internet Industry Hate Taken To Insane Levels: Ridiculous Proposals To 'Nationalize' Successful Internet Companies

    Mike Masnick
    22 Jul 2014 | 10:04 am
    Over the last few years, there's been a ridiculous rise in a bizarre form of anti-Silicon Valley populism, in which people are encouraged to hate successful internet companies for... being successful. Usually, when you dig into the details, the attacks on the firms are a combination of general fear of "bigness," hatred/jealousy of success and a fundamental misunderstanding of economics. Now, let's be clear: big companies with too much power do have a rather long history of bad behavior and companies should be watched carefully if they abuse their position. But the anti-internet populism seems…
  • Copyright As Censorship: San Francisco Eviction Lawyer Uses DMCA Takedown To Censor Protest Video

    Mike Masnick
    22 Jul 2014 | 9:03 am
    Right now the issue of housing in San Francisco is a big local topic -- and while I tend to agree that the real issue is the regulations limiting the building of new housing in and around the city, the fight has gotten quite nasty at times. It often seems to focus on two issues (neither of which are the true cause of the problem): local evictions for longtime tenants, and tech workers. You can certainly understand the frustration, even if it's mostly misguided. Still, even given that, this seems like a clear abuse of copyright law by some of the lawyers who have been helping train people to…

    Last week, the House Judiciary Committee held yet another copyright hearing, this one on Moral Rights, Termination Rights, Resale Royalty, and Copyright Term. We've discussed these issues at different times, and the hearing itself didn't break any major ground on anything, really. The artist resale right issue is nothing but a blatant money grab by successful artists, demanding to get paid any time one of their works gets resold. It shafts younger, up-and-coming artists to the benefit of the few, super-successful artists. However, the tidbit that caught my attention was the copyright term…

     Back in March 2013, eBay said it would start to work on applications for Google Glass — the idea being that the Android-powered, head-mounted computer could help consumers shop for things online and in the real world more seamlessly than pulling out your smartphone (and even less so, a full-fledged computer).

  • Metal Clad Samsung Galaxy Alpha Will Be Released In Limited Quantity

    Adnan Farooqui
    22 Jul 2014 | 1:16 pm
    There has been no shortage of rumors about Samsung preparing a smartphone that is fashioned out of metal. It was initially believed to offer two versions of the Galaxy S5 side by side, one plastic and the other metal. However Samsung only released the plastic version of the Galaxy S5 and no one knows when the metal one is going to be released. Recently there have been rumors about a metal clad smartphone called the Galaxy Alpha and a new rumor suggests that it will be released in limited quantity. Rumor has it that Samsung will have to turn towards Chinese manufacturers to get the metal…

    The San Diego Comic Con is one of the biggest events of its kind and naturally there’s a lot of foot traffic. Folks who are attending the 2014 San Diego Comic Con and happen to love the Xbox are in for a treat this time around. Microsoft will be giving away 20 special edition Xbox One units. All the attendees have to do in order to win a unit is to head over at Microsoft’s lounge and participate in an activity there and they could walk away with a unit that might not be available from anywhere else. It should be kept in mind though that these units are not more powerful nor do…

At the time this information was not provided but now the folks behind this game have finally revealed the first 100 cars that will be available in Forza Horizon 2.

    BlackBerry has got people talking about its new device called the Passport. It has started receiving some positive attention from the press and analysts as well who believe that this just might be the device that can aid the company’s ailing handset business. When BlackBerry CEO John Chen showed off the Passport for the first time he did mention that it would be released in white as well apart from the standard black. We haven’t seen the device in white until today. Bear in mind though that while the company itself has released several images of the BlackBerry Passport in black…

    Amazon is one of the largest online retailers in the world so its safe to say that it has millions of credit cards on file. There was speculation recently that the company would launch an app soon that would allow people to use digital versions of the card they already have on file with Amazon for online purchases. That hasn’t happened yet but Amazon has released a new Wallet app rather quietly. For now all it does is let you store and use loyalty cards and gift cards. Its pretty easy to load up cards in Amazon Wallet. Start by scanning the loyalty or gift card and then save the…

    Today is a big day! It’s the 20th anniversary of Walt Disney World’s Tower of Terror ride, which makes its home in Hollywood Studios at the Orlando resort (amongst other places). In honor of the day when the best ride Disney World ever Imagineered was welcomed, here are 5 facts about the technology that went into this innovation that was way ahead of its time. 1. The ride vehicle is unlike any other free-fall system in the world. When Tower of Terror first premiered in 1994, the ride system was entirely unique and blew the free-fall market out of the water.

That’s because, defying seemingly bona fide rumors and speculation, Mi 3’s highly anticipated sequel has debuted in the limelight with a 5-inch Full HD screen, not a 5.5-inch Quad HD.

  • iOS Insecurity - Designed by Apple?

    Richard Adhikari
    22 Jul 2014 | 11:34 am
    The long-held belief that Android is the least secure of mobile OSes was shattered by security researcher and expert iOS hacker Jonathan Zdziarski over the weekend. He unveiled a host of iOS vulnerabilities, the scope of which was staggering: undocumented services that bypass backup encryption and can be accessed both via USB and wirelessly; a means to access all data encrypted with data protection if the device has not been rebooted since the user's PIN was last entered; and a packet sniffer that can be monitored remotely over WiFi.
  • GoTenna Makes Wireless 'Magic'

    Richard Adhikari
    22 Jul 2014 | 5:00 am
    Startup GoTenna has launched its eponymously named device, which lets users communicate without the need for a cell tower. "This is an interesting concept," said tech analyst Jim McGregor. "It's like a walkie-talkie on steroids." The device uses BlueTooth LE to pair with a user's smartphone. It can exchange text messages only with another GoTenna. The GoTenna's use is further limited because it encrypts messages with the RSA 1024 public/private key encryption, which means only a GoTenna that has the decryption key can read the message.
  • Judge Rules Police Can Stuff Entire Email Accounts Into Evidence Lockers

    Richard Adhikari
    21 Jul 2014 | 4:35 pm
    Concerns about overly broad searches of digital data by law enforcement once again have emerged after a federal judge ruled that officials armed with a warrant can seize and hold a suspect's entire email account. Such an action would not violate the suspect's rights under the Fourth Amendment of the Constitution, said U.S. Magistrate Judge Gabriel Gorenstein in support of a warrant he issued earlier this month. One worry is that police could retain email accounts and search them repeatedly, said ACLU staff attorney Nate Wessler.
  • Nokia X, We Hardly Knew Ye

    21 Jul 2014 | 9:58 am
    "I told you so" is a refrain that's oft-heard here in the Linux blogosphere, and more often than not it refers to some fleeting Microsoft tie with FOSS that subsequently goes wrong. The latest example? It's a doozy. Redmond not only is laying off many, many thousands -- most of them in its ill-fated Nokia unit -- but also abandoning its short-lived support of Android through the Nokia X line. "We will be particularly focused on making the market for Windows Phone," wrote Microsoft devices chief Stephen Elop in an email last week to employees.
  • Layoffs: There's a Right Way

    Rob Enderle
    21 Jul 2014 | 6:47 am
    Microsoft last week announced a large staff reduction tied to the acquisition of Nokia. There is actually a science to how to make layoffs, but much of that appears to have been lost over the last couple of decades. I have some theories as to why -- I blame the Democrats and financial analysts -- but how you carry out job cuts actually is very important, and it reflects how well the CEO understands people, which I think is a critical skill. In the context of Microsoft's layoffs, I'll offer a layoff primer this week.

The designs show plans for a watch that tethers to another mobile device, and that will be packed with sensors – possibly including some in the strap. Exactly as we’re expecting the iWatch to do. Interestingly, it also suggests that the main face unit will be removable from the strap – perhaps reminiscent of the old iPod Nano that could be used as a wristwatch, or even many modern fitness wearables like Fitbit, where you…

However, the function will only let you transfer everything or nothing. You can’t transfer individual Nintendo IDs or pieces of content across.

  • Researchers from the University of Michigan developed metal-free phosphorescent OLED emitters

    18 Jul 2014 | 9:02 pm
    Researchers from the University of Michigan developed metal-free phosphorescent OLED emitters. The idea is that if the emitter molecules cannot vibrate, they cannot release energy and light and so more energy is converted into light. At first they tried creating a stiff lattice (crystalize the emitters) - this achieved 55% light conversion (better than the 25% of regular fluorescent OLEDs, but not as good as the 100% achieved by heavy metal doping).But this method cannot be adopted for commercial OLEDs easily, and so the second method they tried is to tweaking the organic molecules so that…

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

  • Women Get Interrupted More Than Men in Meetings

    Kira M. Newman
    22 Jul 2014 | 10:24 am
    Kieran Snyder, a studio director of design/PM/operations at Amazon, wanted to test our belief that men interrupt more than women in conversations. So she spent 15 hours of meetings recording interruptions, along with the gender of both speakers. She released her informal study on her blog, and the most disappointing finding was how often women get interrupted. Of 314 total interruptions, 238 – 76% – were of women. 70% of men’s interruptions were of women, and 87% (!) of women’s interruptions were of women.  Let’s pause and dwell on this for a sec: in 15 hours of…

When we started the application process, we had no idea if we were ready, but as an academic-focused startup, we prepared as best as we knew how – we studied up. We spent hours upon hours reading blogs and articles, watching countless videos. In a few weeks, we were drastically more fluent and knowledgeable in “startup theory,” and what successful startups were doing right. We delved so deep…
  • Is Google Glass Becoming Normal?

When the news about this wearable computer hit the market, it had become quite obvious that Google was attempting to bring the future one step too close to the people. However, the big question here is whether people are ready to enjoy and utilize a technology as new as this. We have all come across many reports of Glass explorers being apparently attacked in bars and wondered, “What is wrong with people?!” However, it’s important for us to understand…

  • 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.

The petition was filed by Cedar Party mayoral hopeful Glen Chernen. It alleged that the mayor offered HootSuite a sweetheart deal for the building in exchange for campaign assistance.

    On July 21st, “Weird Al” Yankovic finished up his #8videos8days project through the Wall Street Journal, where he released a music video for “Mission Statement”, a song about business jargon. That video wrapped up an impressive week for Weird Al. His decision to scatter new material all over the web made him a hot topic on the Internet, and his forward-thinking approach has drawn plenty of commentary. At the same time, there seem to be a few aspects of the Weird Al discussion that aren’t drawing enough chatter. In particular, much of the talk around Weird…

    In May, Netflix bumped up its monthly subscription fee by $1, but early returns suggest that the price hike will not slow down the premium online video platform. In its Q2 2014 earnings report, Netflix announced that it has passed 50 million worldwide subscribers, with 1.7 million new customers signing up between April and June. After hitting its Q1 2014 prediction right on the nose, Netflix once again landed close to where it wanted to be at the end of Q2. Specifically, the company’s $71 million net income and $1.34 billion in total sales met analyst predictions. The 1.7 million new…

  • Why Mobile Online Giving Is Important

    Eric Dye
    22 Jul 2014 | 7:00 am
    You can talk, teach and preach about giving, but unless we begin to make giving to the church and charity easier, we may be wasting our breath. If we truly believe in the importance of giving, shouldn’t we make it easier for anyone to do? Especially when you consider how agile people have become online? Just look at the boom we’ve seen with Amazon, Ebay and online shopping in general. Amazon has not only been completely built online, it has kept up with the changing times by selling their own tablets, and now smartphones, completely centered around the ability to spend money online.

    Google Fonts is a great place to find fonts for websites and even print projects; but with so many fonts to choose from, how do you pick? And to add to the confusion, what about font combination!?! I recently ran into this very problem while working on a website design. While I was able to pinpoint one of the fonts, finding a good font to accompany it took me a while. If only I had found this chart sooner… Taking inspiration from a 1992 handout created by the International Journal of Typography, Shawn Pagin created this handy infographic that offers 400 different typeface combinations.

In Applied Physics Letters, a France-US research team reports an intriguing new multi-bit MRAM storage paradigm with the potential to rival flash memory.

    For a long time, IT's job was about procuring, installing and managing large enterprise systems and it took a long time and a ton of money to get them working right. That's why once they were working they tended to leave them in place for years. Today, however in the age of cloud and mobile, stability has given way to agility and the cloud's incremental updates make so much more sense. Photo Credit: William Murphy on Flickr.

    I had the privilege last month of attending the American Society of Business Press Editors' annual regional awards banquet along with many of my colleagues from IDG Enterprise, and better yet, we all came away with handfuls of Azbee award hardware.Here's a look at some of the more than 40 award-winners from our collection (not all of the awards are for individual articles or packages...some were for coverage of an event, like Interop, or for design).

  • The king of techie/geeky movies?

    22 Jul 2014 | 9:32 am
    wikipedia Benedict Cumberbatch, the British actor who always seems more imposing than his official 6-foot height, is establishing himself as a go-to guy for tech-themed movies. His next big splash will be portraying Alan Turing, the brilliant mathematician and "Father of Computer Science," in the movie The Imitation Game alongside Keira Knightley (Leonardo DiCaprio was rumored early on to be in contention for the leading role). Turing, who helped crack the Enigma code during World War II, had what would have been his 100th birthday celebrated around the world in 2012. To read this article…

    Penn State University researchers have found that decorating your mobile phone is largely a cultural thing, and it looks like I'm behaving pretty darn American on this front.The study involved surveys of American and South Korean students, and found that the South Koreans were more likely to customize their phones, whether it be with charms, special ringtones, stickers or cases. "People who live in collectivist cultures are often more other-directed,"said S. Shyam Sundar, Distinguished Professor of Communications and co-director of the Media Effects Research Laboratory at Penn State, in a…

  • Silverstone Raven 5 ATX Case

    22 Jul 2014 | 12:07 pm
    TechSpot has published a review of the Silverstone Raven 5 ATX case today for those of you interested. You can see our evaluation here. Silverstone's Raven RV01 caught our attention back in 2008 with a unique chassis layout that turned the motherboard upward so its I/O panel was on top of the enclosure instead of behind. Called the "stack effect," the design was highly original and more importantly, extremely effective for cooling. Comments
  • What Do Game Developers Make In Salary?

    22 Jul 2014 | 11:07 am
    Other than that pesky "laid off after every new game ships" thing, it looks like you can make a pretty damn good living being a game developer. Overall, game developers within the U.S. managed to make $83,060 on average over the course of 2013, and while that's a high number, it's actually a lower one than 2012, down 2 percent. The business and management salaries seem to rule overall, averaging $101,572, while audio professionals ($95,682) and programmers ($93,521) follow closely behind. As to who makes the least amount of money, quality assurance professionals sit at the bottom with…

    If you like your computer cases with a twist (90º to be exact), make sure you read our evaluation of the SilverStone Raven RV05 rotated computer case. The SilverStone Raven series of cases long ago broke the mold when it comes to "normal" computer chassis. Its design execution has always been good and the Ravens' airflow characteristics are excellent. Today SilverStone pushes the new Raven RV05 out there a little bit further in terms of design and function. Comments

  • Did Comcast's Infamous Customer Service Call Open The Company Up To Legal Troubles For Lying About Speeds?

    Mike Masnick
    22 Jul 2014 | 12:54 pm
    So, last week, that customer service call between Ryan Block and a Comcast "retention specialist" who refused to take "cancel the damn service" for an answer went viral. Comcast has since apologized, said it was investigating, and insisted that the call was "not consistent with how we train our customer service representatives." I doubt many people actually believe that -- but it may be even more serious than most people realize. That's because, throughout the call, the nameless representative keeps insisting that Comcast's broadband is the fastest. And that's not true. Which raises some…

  • Internet Industry Hate Taken To Insane Levels: Ridiculous Proposals To 'Nationalize' Successful Internet Companies

    Mike Masnick
    22 Jul 2014 | 10:04 am
    Over the last few years, there's been a ridiculous rise in a bizarre form of anti-Silicon Valley populism, in which people are encouraged to hate successful internet companies for... being successful. Usually, when you dig into the details, the attacks on the firms are a combination of general fear of "bigness," hatred/jealousy of success and a fundamental misunderstanding of economics. Now, let's be clear: big companies with too much power do have a rather long history of bad behavior and companies should be watched carefully if they abuse their position. But the anti-internet populism seems…
  • Copyright As Censorship: San Francisco Eviction Lawyer Uses DMCA Takedown To Censor Protest Video

    Mike Masnick
    22 Jul 2014 | 9:03 am
    Right now the issue of housing in San Francisco is a big local topic -- and while I tend to agree that the real issue is the regulations limiting the building of new housing in and around the city, the fight has gotten quite nasty at times. It often seems to focus on two issues (neither of which are the true cause of the problem): local evictions for longtime tenants, and tech workers. You can certainly understand the frustration, even if it's mostly misguided. Still, even given that, this seems like a clear abuse of copyright law by some of the lawyers who have been helping train people to…

    Shweta Jhajharia explains why over two and half million UK businesses are unable to break the coveted £1 million threshold and highlights three areas that might just hold the key. The majority of businesses never reach the £1M turnover mark – a level often used to benchmark firms. This is significant because most business owners, when they first started, envisaged not just a multi-million pound business, but a multi-billion pound business. Statistically, only 4% of business owners ever reach the £1M mark and further, only 10% of these businesses (that’s 0.4% of all business…

    Black Milk has a penchant for making pop culture fashionable, so it should come as no surprise that their Disney Princesses+Villains line is looking pretty top notch. The high mark is probably the excellent Maleficent bomber jacket seen below, which should be worn while on a motorcycle as often as possible. As usual for Black Milk, a lot of the collection is made up of leggings. Lots and lots of printed leggings. There are plenty of Disney-themed dresses and crop tops, too, along with a sheer yellow maxi skirt that will let you get your Snow White on. The collection isn’t quite ready to…
  • Condoms That Kill HIV Could Be Coming Very Soon

    The world’s still hurting for a cure to HIV/AIDS, but one pharmaceutical company out of Australia might have something significant on their hands in at least stopping the spread of HIV. Starpharma has developed condoms that deactivate HIV and a host of other STIs using a medical gel. That gel is called VivaGel, and contains astodrimer sodium, which is a non-antibiotic, antimicrobial drug that attacks STIs like HIV. VivaGel is also said to protect against herpes and HPV, making these new condoms a pretty significant step forward in reducing the prevalence and spread of STIs in general. A…
  • Who Needs Sunscreen, When You Have a UV Blocking Scarf?

    Chance Kinney
    22 Jul 2014 | 9:38 am
    You do. You still need sunscreen. Please keep wearing it. But, you can add an extra layer of protection with sun-protective clothing from SummerSkin. You can think of sun-protective clothing as Robin to sunscreen’s Batman—occasionally helpful, but it’s not going to save the day on its own. The material that goes into sun-protective clothing blocks UV radiation to varying degrees measured in UPF (ultraviolet protection factor), which is analogous to SPF for skin-applied products. Sun-protective clothing and sunscreen essentially work the same way, though—they protect what they…

  • 5 Effective Ways to Monetize Freemium Apps

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

    13 May 2014 | 3:14 am
    Getting your content shared is essential for anyone engaged in online marketing of any kind. Going “viral” is the goal, but it’s harder to achieve than you might realize. Truth be told, there’s no golden rule, no magic bullet, that guarantees your content will go viral. In fact, most marketing experts have no idea why one post goes viral when another doesn’t achieve that critical mass. However, while viral spread might be the Holy Grail of online marketing, creating content that get shared is more important. You might never attain “viral” status, but good content that’s shared…

  • Win access to a game, then proceed to pirate it

    22 Jul 2014 | 1:44 am
    Modern Combat 5 has been cracked and uploaded to multiple torrenting websites over the weekend. MC5 is a first person shooter for iOS, Android and Windows 8. The developer and publisher, Gameloft, ran a contest recently and invited players into the game early. One of those winners apparently cracked the game and began distributing it online. Modern Combat's dev team is not pleased with the situation. Horrible. You win a contest for early access, and then you turn around and stab them in the back like this. You must be a pretty terrible human being to do something like this.

    John Seigenthaler, the legendary editor of Nashville’s daily newspaper, The Tennessean, died yesterday (Friday, July 11, 2014) in his Nashville home. In addition to recounting his remarkable career in journalism and public service, an event nine years ago that’s now referred to by early contributors to Wikipedia as “the Wikipedia Seigenthaler incident” earned a paragraph in Mr. Seigenthaler’s New York Time’s obituary.

At jiveSYSTEMS, we call this habit of following up a phone call with a video “The Digital Handshake”. It’s a powerful practice that will have an immediate and positive affect on your business. The act of putting a face to the name literally changes…

But now, DataDirect Cloud has changed all that.

Since it isn’t a 1024GB SSD, we’re not going to be calling it a 1TB SSD, even if Kingston is just because once you format this drive you’ll probably be looking at under 900GB of formatted space.

    This morning I’m delivering a keynote to more than 1,000 people for the AmericanHort association — the largest horticultural association in the US. It’s titled Kill The Commodity, and the organizer selected the title. Most companies in competitive spaces are perceived as commodities — a printer is a printer, right? Doors are doors, construction is construction, and distributors are distributors. The problem is that when the market views you as a commodity, all you have to compete on is price, and life is very difficult. That’s why people in commodity businesses…
  • Awareness

    Alex Goldfayn
    7 Jul 2014 | 12:02 am
    Think about your typical customers: on average, what percentage of your entire range of products and services are they aware of? I ask every audience, client and prospect this question, because it is the single lowest hanging fruit for revenue. Answers range between 5% and 50%, but almost never higher. People cannot buy what they do not know about. We think about everything we offer, because it is our job. But our customers have their own jobs. And even if we’ve told them (repeatedly!) about the other products and services they can buy from us, they are probably not aware of them. How do we…
  • Help People, Even In Your Marketing

    Just like your products and services, the best marketing helps people. It doesn’t pitch, propose, push, prod or promise. Rather, it demonstrates your outstanding value to your customers and prospects. It offers ideas, tools, techniques, approaches, and advice for improvement. If you sell products, help your market get the most out of them. If you sell services, teach people how to improve in your area of expertise. Think about your market: as a group, where are they falling short? What are they doing incorrectly that can be bettered? Right now, make a list of a half-dozen such areas.
  • The Personal Communication

    23 Jun 2014 | 9:54 am
    In an era of ever-expanding communications platforms and tools, the personal communication is going the way of the triceratops and the Palm Pilot.Think about it: how many personal, one-on-one emails and phone calls from do you receive in a day? For most of us, the number is dwarfed by group mailings, blasts, conference calls, and, yes, social media sharing. I like writing with fountain pens, so every week I send several hand-written personal notes. Nearly every recipient comments how nice — and rare! — it is. We’re supposed to be communicating more than ever, but…
  • The Over-Complication Habit

    19 Jun 2014 | 7:16 am
    By nature, we overcomplicate. At a workshop I was conducting yesterday, one attendee asked me “How can we commit the time and resources to categorize all of our members exactly right?” I replied to her that she needs to add a column in a spreadsheet (or a field in whatever CRM she uses), and quickly add one of three or four categories to her customers. This requires minutes, not hours. “But we have thousands of people and lots of stakeholders, board members, others…” So ask them for help. “But that’s so many people.” Start with a few, mail to a…

    Hollywood is taking the death of veteran actor James Garner hard. The Maverick, Rockford Files and Notebook star, who died on Saturday at his home in Los Angeles at 86, has left a lasting mark on the hearts of his fellow actors. Julie Andrews remembered her longtime friend — with whom she co-starred in several films, including The Americanization of Emily in 1964, Victor Victoria in 1982, and One Special Night in 1999 — in a statement to Access Hollywood. “Jimmy was my friend for over 50 years. We made three movies together,” the Sound of Music actress said. “He was not only…

    Do you know what the number one song on the Modern Rock Tracks chart was on this day in 1995? Well, you oughta. Hard to believe it’s been almost two decades since a young girl from Canada, already known by many as the brunette from You Can’t Do That On Television, shocked radio listeners everywhere with her hard-hitting, slightly unnerving, catchy-as-hell pop tune You Oughta Know. The song was one that if it came on in the car and you were with your mother, it would make you both feel just a little bit uncomfortable, especially that line about doing something naughty in a movie…

    22 Jul 2014 | 11:57 am
    Facebook announced on Tuesday that it is adding device level targeting to mobile app ads, enabling developers to reach the precise devices they need to in order to succeed with their campaigns. For example, developers will be able to specifically target Samsung Galaxy S5 users or iPhone 5s users or iPad 1 users. As Facebook points out, you could even get as specific as someone using a Google Nexus 10 with a minimum OS version of 3.0, who are on Wi-Fi. Before, you’d have only been able to target the OS, minimum OS version and Wi-Fi only users. Facebook says the new device targeting…

    50 Shades Of Grey has become a worldwide hit in book form, and it looks like the upcoming film will do the same. And if Beyonce’s teaser on her Instagram account is a suggestion of what’s to come, it may do even better than expected. The singer put up a little trailer this week showing some suggestive clips set to a slowed-down version of “Crazy In Love” with the promise of something big to come on Thursday, which immediately set off a media blitz as everyone tried to figure out exactly what Queen Bey has to do with the movie. It seems like her music will, at the very…

In fact, for the past 2 months, I have virtually unfollowed every single friend on my Facebook feed which makes sure my feed is a constant fill from the content from sites or publications that I would be interested in reading. Given how important the social media audience is for all the major publishers, it is no surprise that the article is immediately shared on the Facebook page of these publishers.

Its predecessor, Call of Duty: World at War, which focuses on the events of World War II, was released way back in 2008.

In order to reach that objective, the recently appointed CEO has decided to cut as many as 18,000 jobs in the coming year. According to Nadella, the larger part of the cuts will affect the Nokia Devices and Services division, which Microsoft had acquired in September 2013 for a price of $7.2 billion USD.

    I recently ran into a problem while trying to login to a client’s Drupal 7 website: the password I had was incorrect, and the email address for the site’s past maintainer was no longer valid. I needed to login to this site to make some updates, but how could I login without the correct login credentials? If you find yourself having this same problem, and you have access to cPanel/FTP and the database, you’ll be able to get out of this situation in under 5 minutes. You won’t be able to dig up the current password, but you’ll be able to reset it with these simple…

    I will be giving my first ever talk at Drupal Camp PA on August 2! My talk is going to be about Organic Groups for beginners. I will go over how to build a site with Organic Groups and the modules that you need to get going. I recently worked on a project using Organic Groups and I thought the best way to solidify my knowledge was to talk about it and teach other people. I am excited and nervous at the same time. If this one goes well, I hope to travel the world and give talks at all of the awesome conferences. If you’re local, sign up for Drupal Camp PA…
  • 5 Ways to Connect Your Online Store to the Rest of the Business

    14 Jul 2014 | 8:41 am
    We help clients with a lot of e-commerce initiatives, yet we rarely build a simple online store that *just* sells products online with no twists.  Given the handful of good online store tools out there, most clients could, and sometimes even should, hire a freelancer or an internal person to build a small, plain-vanilla store if that’s all they will need for a while. But often things quickly get tricky for a number of reasons including, among others, the need to customize how the store behavies, high sales volumes, or, my favorite and one of the most common, the need to connect the…

    A clever new ad from Apple shows the various ways MacBook Air owners personalize their notebooks with stickers, etchings and decals. It shows how into their devices people are as well as how creative one can get with the backlit Apple logo. Although personally, I wouldn't add stickers on my notebook, I still enjoyed the ad. Nice nod to Apple's rainbow logo towards the end.

    Jean-Louis Gassée
    13 Jul 2014 | 9:42 am
      Satya Nadella’s latest message to the troops – and to the world – is disquieting. It lacks focus, specifics, and, if not soon sharpened, his words will worry employees, developers, customers, and even shareholders. As I puzzled over the public email Microsoft’s new CEO sent to his troops, Nicolas Boileau’s immortal dictum came to mind: Whatever is well conceived is clearly said, And the words to say it flow with ease. Clarity and ease are sorely missing from Satya Nadella’s 3,100 plodding words, which were supposed to paint a clear, motivating future for 127,000…

      By the end of 2014, many news media will collect around 50% of their page views via mobile devices. Here are trends to remember before devising a mobile strategy. (First of a two-part series.) In the news business, mobile investments are on the rise. That’s the pragmatic response to a major trend: Users shift from web to mobile. Already, all major media outlets are bracing for a momentous threshold: 50% of their viewership coming from mobile devices (smartphones and tablets). Unfortunately, the revenue stream is not likely to follow anytime soon: making users pay for mobile…
  • The Network Is the Computer: Google Tries Again

    Jean-Louis Gassée
    6 Jul 2014 | 1:29 pm
      All you need is a dumb device attached to a smart network. It’s an old idea that refuses to die despite repeated failures. Now it’s Google’s turn. In the late 1980s, Sun Microsystems used a simple, potent war cry to promote its servers: The Network Is The Computer. Entrust all of your business intelligence, computing power, and storage to Sun’s networked SPARC systems and you can replace your expensive workstation with a dumb, low cost machine. PCs are doomed. Nothing of the sort happened, of course. Sun’s venture was disrupted by inexpensive servers assembled from the PC…
  • Google might not be a monopoly, after all

      Despite its dominance, Google doesn’t fit the definition of a monopoly. Still, the Search giant’s growing disconnect from society could lead to serious missteps and, over time, to a weakened position.  In last week’s column, I opined about the Open Internet Project’s anti-trust lawsuit against Google. Reactions showed divided views of the search engine’s position. Granted, Google is an extremely aggressive company, obsessed with growth, scalability, optimization — and also with its own vulnerability. But is it really a monopoly in the traditional and historical…

    When you hear Nintendo, what’s the first thing you think of? Probably Mario. When somebody talks about the good old days of Sega, what comes to mind? Likely, Sonic. Mascots are a huge way that companies sell their brands and stand out from one another, and video games are no exception. Nowadays, loyalty to one system or publisher isn’t as big as it used to be, but back in the console wars of the 1990s, a mascot could mean everything to sales.

    Facebook chats are a great way to communicate with a major drawback: Facebook keeps a record of everything. Unless you delete chats manually, they will remain on Facebook for years to come. I have always found it strange and honestly, quite troubling that a social media juggernaut like Facebook has no provision to turn off chat recording or at least provide some self-destruct functionality. If you have used Google Hangouts, then I’m sure you are familiar with the “off the record” feature that allows you to chat without leaving any trace of the conversation. This is one area…

Today we find even the most simple of ideas the most endearing, and it’s becoming a noticeable trend among consumers who favor clutter-free packaging, dressed-down products, and no-fuss marketing, over which product is the shiniest, and which has the most colorful label.

    Whatever your creative goal – be it to pen a Pulitzer prize winning novel, shoot an Oscar winning movie, or paint a masterpiece – it’s important to remember that you are constantly surrounded by outside influences. You read, you watch movies, and you examine art. Each of these mediums, with their wide variety of style and voice, influence your life and your creativity. When pen meets paper, or fingers meet keyboard, you can sometimes struggle to decisively write something that you feel is original.

The structure — a layer of graphite flakes and an underlying carbon foam — is a porous, insulating material structure that floats on water. When sunlight hits the structure’s surface, it creates a hotspot in the graphite, drawing water up through the material’s pores, where it evaporates as steam. The brighter the light, the more steam is more

A homepage is the entrance to your website – a portal to the rest of your site with the goal of exploring it. It’s usually visited by those who have a direct link to your website.

    Many people have had their coverage cancelled by health insurance companies. Last October, Florida Blue cancelled the policies of more than 300,000 customers (80% of its individual plans) on the grounds that the plans did not meet the requirements of the Affordable Care Act. According to the law, policies sold in the individual market as of January 1, 2014 should have covered the following benefits: Doctor visits Emergency and hospital services Maternity and newborn care Mental health and substance abuse treatment Prescription drugs Rehabilitation Chronic disease management Laboratory work…
  • ICD-10 Delay – Its Impact on Students

    18 Jul 2014 | 3:15 am
    Healthcare providers, insurance payers and vendors aren’t the only entities that are affected by the unexpected ICD-10 delay of more than a year. Delay in implementing this coding system is detrimental also for students pursuing health information management degrees and trying to prepare for their careers. On March 31, the U.S. senate passed the “Doc Fix” bill that approved H.R. 4302, the legislation which delays the ICD-10 implementation deadline by one year to October 1, 2015. Students who have been preparing for the tenth version of codes now find themselves unable to…
  • Delay in the Deactivation of Implanted Cardiac Devices Causing Concern

    Meghann Kiernan
    16 Jul 2014 | 1:20 am
    A retrospective review of the medical records of 150 cardiac patients who had deactivated their implanted electronic cardiac devices (by request) revealed that both physicians and patients are not planning ahead or including their aspirations regarding the deactivation of devices in their advance directives. This is in spite of the fact that except one, all the patients analyzed had quite poor or terminal prognosis at the time the device was deactivated. The investigation also showed that surrogates rather than the patients themselves had made half of all deactivation requests, and the…

    Telemedicine has just got a boost with the American Medical Association (AMA) approving a list of the guiding principles presented at its Annual Meeting held from June 7-11, 2014. A component of telehealth, telemedicine generally refers to the provision of clinical services from a distance. The benefits include increased access to specialist consultations, improved access to primary and ambulatory care, and reduced waiting times. AMA’s recognition will ensure appropriate coverage of reimbursement for telemedicine services on telemedicine. According to the nation’s largest…
  • Marked Rise in Physical Therapy Services Provided to Medicare Beneficiaries

    Julie Clements
    11 Jul 2014 | 12:15 am
    Physical therapy is a dynamic treatment method that helps individuals to overcome disabilities and achieve optimal function and pain relief. As per a new U.S. Government Accountability Office (GAO) report, physical therapy services offered to Medicare beneficiaries increased by about 30% during the period 2004 to 2010. Unlike other healthcare service-utilization increases, self-referring physicians were not responsible for the rise. It was found that around 4.3 million Medicare beneficiaries had received outpatient physiotherapy treatments worth $4.1 billion in the year 2011. The number of…

    BREAKING: Microsoft cutting 18,000 jobs, 14% of company, in its largest layoffs ever. It’s the largest job reduction in the company’s history — a major move by new Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella intended, in part, to streamline the way Microsoft develops products and runs its engineering teams. Microsoft is starting with 13,000 cuts today, and more will be made over the next year to bring the total to 18,000. About 1,351 positions will be cut in the Seattle region as part of that first wave, representing about 3 percent of the company’s workforce in the region. ... Read…

Yes! It is a serverless solution and works without any padding Admin consoles and hence lesser administration. The installers are intelligent and perceptive, and integrate with SCCM without any human intervention. Once the Nomad installers for SCCM integration are installed, Nomad can easily be enabled and configured from within the SCCM console itself. Nomad can be set as a download provider via…

    I’d like to share with you all a few things that I have picked up while reviewing white papers and talking to customers regarding Software License Optimization (SLO). In short, Software Vendors are getting more aggressive when it comes to software license audits and if you fail an audit you are opening your company for the same treatment from your other vendors. Before starting at 1E, I made the assumption that major vendors audited their customers to make sure that their customer base are using the amount of licenses they have paid for, which is fair.  However there is an increasing trend…

What is interesting is that when we started the business in 1997, the core focus and the IT problems that we were dealing with (for our customers) were around simple automation. This was because the basic Microsoft tools hadn’t reached maturity, and what we were providing from the outset were solutions to make the Microsoft tools work effectively, such as patching the PCs of remote users – so we wrote Nomad; computers…

Have you ever wondered if such a model could be created for a software design process? I did and here are my thoughts on it. Obviously a detailed implementation cannot be touched by such a “bird’s eye architecture-cheat-sheet” but I think a general description with some design tips can be achieved.

  • Top 10 Books to Un-Borg

    14 Nov 2013 | 7:02 am
    I have been thinking of doing this for a long time. Actually I plan to extend it to 100 books that I think are a good foundation for anyone to read in order to have a more rounded, more able, and most of all a more independent way of thinking than just unconsciously going along with the greater reactive biomass that is carefully being shaped by TV and other mass media, including this here Internet. Just to be clear then, my criteria for whether a book makes it into my top 100 is primarily based on the practical, real effect it has on you awakening from the dreary, matrix-like slumber induced…

You will note from the image at the top of the post, taken in mid June, (the 12th to be precise) the DANGER that citizens, in their zombie-like stupidity could be exposed to and big brother government is SAVING LIVES and no doubt THINKING OF THE CHILDREN.

  • 3 Creative Ways To Validate Your Business Idea (Before You Launch)

    Thomas Oppong
    22 Jul 2014 | 7:37 am
    The biggest mistake you can ever make is to start a business without practical knowledge about its potential for success. Don’t build a product for customers who may not even need it. Create something people actually want by first testing it’s usefulness. Idea validation can help you find the weakest link in your logic, answer all questions you may have about the idea, know if customers actually have the problem you think they have and the best way to solve it.

And by “it”, I mean stretching the Doritos brand well past chips – this time landing under a heating lamp at 7-Eleven.
  • Yo: Is it really that simple?

    Gram Bowsher
    2 Jul 2014 | 8:22 am
    Yo: A two letter word with ambiguous origins and typically inconsequential meaning. Or is it not that simple? One of the newest trends in social media and mobile apps has been the rise of the app named after such a seemingly innocuous term. Giving users only the ability to send the word “Yo” to each other, the app has already received $1.2 million in investment and has risen to the number one in the iOS app store. The fast rise of Yo was quickly followed by an influx of hack attempts, and when a group of college students hacked into Yo’s data and were able to attain user information,…
  • Instant Karma!: Waking Up the Instant Coffee Category

    25 Jun 2014 | 8:20 am
    In an interview about his hit song Instant Karma! (We All Shine On), John Lennon was quoted as saying “the idea of instant karma was like the idea of instant coffee: presenting something in a new form.” I’m not sure what the instant coffee category was like in 1970 (it’s surprisingly difficult to dig up 44-year-old category data), but it seems that history has a way of repeating itself. Lately instant coffee seems to be in need of a shakeup, and many manufacturers are throwing their hats in the ring. According to Mintel, consumption of instant coffee is on the decline in the US.

    22 Jul 2014 | 1:14 am
    Novo7 Tech recently announced on their Facebook page that they’ll soon offer the beastly THL 5000. A quick search reveals the 5 inch smartphone is powered by a 2.0GHz MediaTek octa-core CPU, 2GB of RAM and Android 4.4 KitKat (Yehey!). Surprisingly, the beastly part does not refer to the octa-core processor, but rather the massive 5,000mAh battery. In comparison, LG’s latest wonder phone, the G3, only has 3,000mAh. With that much power, the THL 5000 could have 47 hours of talk time, 11 hours of web browsing, 11.6 hours of video playback and up to 1,000 hours of standby time. I…

    Windows 8.1 has been available for a while now and I think it would be a good time to share with you some of the keyboard shortcut that I use the most. There is no doubt that Microsoft had done a lot of work in Windows 8.1 to please tablet users. If you are a normal desktop user like me, it might seem like you have to do everything with the mouse, but that is not true. If you learn some of the basic keyboard shortcuts, I think it will be a lot easier for you to navigate around in Windows 8.1 on your laptop or desktop PC. I think that most Windows users has a lot of habits on how we do stuff.

  • Did Author Photos Hurt Google’s PPC? The Proof Is In

    Dave Paul
    17 Jul 2014 | 7:25 am
    Recently, Google made a major change in the way it rewarded authorship. Previously, author portraits were displayed next to any search results tied to a Google+ account. Google took away these portraits with no warning, leaving only a small tagline with the author’s name. While authors may not be pleased, marketers should be. And poof! Google made my author photo vanish into thin air — Cyrus Shepard (@CyrusShepard) June 27, 2014 As discussed last week, this doesn’t change the importance of authorship in the age of content.

    We’ve all heard the phrase “content is king.” The past several years have seen an accelerating trend where search engines reward high-quality, valuable content. That trend definitely won’t reverse anytime soon, but it is taking an interesting twist: If Google’s newest changes are any clue, it’s not the content that’s king but the content creators. And just because your site releases great content doesn’t make you a content creator. It’s the individual authors that Google is increasingly shining the spotlight on, not the companies or entities that publish their work. That…

  • An Activist Investor Takes Aim At A Multi-Billion Dollar Tech Company

    21 Jul 2014 | 9:57 pm
    Elliott Management Corp., a $25 billion activist hedge fund founded by Paul Singer, has spent more than $1 billion to take a 2% ownership of data storage firm EMC, the Wall Street Journal reports. That would make Elliott the fifth-largest shareholder of EMC, which is one of the largest in Elliott’s 37-year history, according to the WSJ. The move is largely seen as an attempt to demand that EMC split off its subsidiary VMware unit. Elliott thinks the separation could boost EMC’s lagging stock price and potentially attract acquisition bids for EMC from other tech giants like Oracle,…

    Earlier this month, we talked about how brands use color to establish their place in consumers' minds. But that's not the only way companies use subtle imagery to make connections with people. Sometimes simply choosing the right font can convey important messages. For instance, Canon's logo uses sharp corners to indicate the level of precision its products boast, while Tumblr's logo highlights the company's minimalist aesthetic.  We used the fonts of some of the world's most distinctive logos to spell out new words. See if you can figure out which brands the letters belong to.Hint:…

    When was the last time we heard something new or exciting from BlackBerry? Apart from the recent appointment of Marty Beard as COO, not much else. And this quick rundown by Ingrid Lunden over at TechCrunch of where BlackBerry stands right now isn’t all sunshine and rainbows: BlackBerry’s share price dropped by more than 10% the day after Apple and IBM announced their news. The effect was not helped by the general decline that BlackBerry has seen over the last couple of years as its market share in smartphones as tumbled while Android devices and the iPhone continue to rise. On…

    20 Jul 2014 | 10:22 pm
    Yesterday’s journey back home in Manila turned out to be an interesting case of testing our values of respect for one another, the law and decency. One of my fellow passengers on the commute from Tenement in C-5 to the MRT/LRT station in Pasay City along the East Service road was an old man and a senior citizen. The driver of the jeep was a decade younger than him, I think. For the purposes of this post, I’d refer to the passenger as ‘Manong senior citizen‘ and the driver as ‘Manong Drayber‘. Yes, I need to work on better references. It all started when…

    Janet Napoles as a State witness?! It’s like pardoning the Marcoses of all their crimes against the Filipino people, letting them keep their stolen wealth and even proclaiming them as the first Royal family of the Philippines. It’s like telling all the farmers to give up their rightful claims on Hacienda Luisita and adorn the Cojuancos for their benevolence. It’s like telling Editha Burgos that she should trust the AFP are telling the truth and would help them find her still missing son Jonas Burgos. It’s like telling the victims of human rights abuses, some of which…

    Windows Phone 8.1 is slated for release in a month or two and while there’s not much fanfare over it as compared to new releases of Android and iOS, Microsoft has gathered enough attention to keep the whole world interested. A list of features of Windows Phone 8.1 can be found here, one of the highlights of which is Cortana – Microsoft’s version of a digital personal assistant like Google Now for Android and Siri for iOS. There’s nothing groundbreaking with Cortana in terms of what it can do. However, the most interesting bit is how it is the most transparent to…

    4 Apr 2014 | 7:46 am
    The last time there was a major slow down of internet speed in the country was back in December of 2006 when an earthquake that struck off the coast of Taiwan damaged major undersea cables that provide connectivity to the country. With incidents like these, even the biggest ISPs like PLDT and Globe were at the mercy of international groups that maintain the undersea cable connections’ ability to repair the damage. The recent damage hit the undersea cables lying in areas between Taiwan and Japan, and China and Korea. Latest reports say that repairs are expected to be completed by around…

    We all know the feeling. You apply for a job, and wait, and wait...and wait some more. You’re wondering if the company received your application, if you’re in the running for the job or just downright out for the count. No one likes to be in limbo during the hiring process. It’s often a full-time job looking for a job, so not knowing where you stand is just straight up frustrating.

Most people spend at least a quarter of their time at work every week. And that’s exactly why it’s so important to embrace what makes your company special and let your culture shine. We all know referrals are one the best recruitment avenues, and nothing says “come join our team” like a team member raving about why he or she loves working there. Last week I talked about getting…

    Business & IT Strategy We hear it almost every day, IT Strategy, Business Strategy, strategic customer accounts, strategic widgets, etc. Strategy is applied to so many areas and so many things that the word has almost become meaningless.  The term “strategy” has become trite because it is used so much with so little understanding.

    In House vs. Outsource Business today is looking for a way to provide shareholder value.  Outsourcing has become one of the latest “crazes” to boost stock values because shareholders believe it will reduce costs.  While your share price may increase in the short term, you may not see the cost savings and your share price will suffer later as your cost basis increases. It is sad that the cost saving “dream” presented during all those sales pitches often become a “nightmare” of spiraling costs and management headaches.  If you go into your outsourcing…

With some background understanding (and a lot of due diligence) you can avoid most of those rocks and navigate these waters. It does take work, work that your outsourcing vendor will never tell you.

The less aggressive you are with your outsourcing management the more profitable you are to the outsourcing company. Does fallout mean you will be in court? Sometimes yes, but sometimes it means re-negotiating a contract or, worse still, skyrocketing costs which can exceed the original costs that were replaced.

    FARNBOROUGH, England — Although battery weight may keep electric planes from becoming mainstream in the near future, Airbus believes its E-Fan 2.0 will find a real market: pilot training.It hopes to begin selling the E-Fan 2.0 in late 2017 for pilot training. That’s only one fraction of the plane market. A later planned E-Fan 4.0 with space for four passengers, however, will be aimed at the general-aviation market.Earlier this year, the company started publicly flying a prototype of the E-Fan 2.0, which weighs just 500kg (1100lbs).

    When you hear Nintendo, what’s the first thing you think of? Probably Mario. When somebody talks about the good old days of Sega, what comes to mind? Likely, Sonic. Mascots are a huge way that companies sell their brands and stand out from one another, and video games are no exception. Nowadays, loyalty to one system or publisher isn’t as big as it used to be, but back in the console wars of the 1990s, a mascot could mean everything to sales.

    Facebook chats are a great way to communicate with a major drawback: Facebook keeps a record of everything. Unless you delete chats manually, they will remain on Facebook for years to come. I have always found it strange and honestly, quite troubling that a social media juggernaut like Facebook has no provision to turn off chat recording or at least provide some self-destruct functionality. If you have used Google Hangouts, then I’m sure you are familiar with the “off the record” feature that allows you to chat without leaving any trace of the conversation. This is one area…

    Apple has finally rolled out 2-step verification worldwide, so secure your Apple ID by enabling it right now. The security feature also known as 2-factor authentication uses two forms of ID – something you know and something you have in your possession (like your iPhone) – to prove your identity before granting access to your account. Those with an Apple account will know how valuable it is to them. Aside from the fact that your personal details and credit card information is in there, access to your account means access to your music, movies, TV shows, and apps too. Lose your…

    Its designation being a reference to its maliciousness (malicious intent), “malware” is essentially software that’s been designed for nefarious purposes, either to disrupt someone’s computer system or glean some type of information from it.  Part of the problem with malware of course is that it often remains largely invisible and/or infiltrates a machine by tagging onto seemingly innocuous programs.  Quite obviously it’s always a good idea to get rid of any and all malware as soon as possible or even better, try to prevent it from actually getting onto your system in the first…

    Odin is one of those tools that helps you flash custom development files, such as custom ROMs and custom mods, on your Samsung devices. It is a widely used tool for flashing almost all types of Samsung devices that run Android as their operating system. In order to flash a file with Odin, it must be a valid Odin flashable file.

  • First look at Evolve OS with Budgie Desktop

    Evolve OS is a new desktop Linux distribution which includes the Budgie Desktop. The project has just started making its first public releases and is currently in the Alpha stage, so don’t expect everything to be working flawlessly. It is also worth noting that Evolve OS only supports 64-bit processors (x86_64 or amd64) and that there are no current plans to release a 32 bit version. This means you need a PC with at least an Intel Core 2 or Athlon 64 processor. Most modern processors from Intel and AMD are 64-bit.For those who are not aware, Budgie is a clean and lean desktop…

It is a simple small window that appears in the bottom-right corner as soon as you hit that Compose button. The reason behind it was to improve the user-experience and enable users to easily and quickly compose new emails. While it was welcomed by a large group of Gmail users, some users preferred the old-style compose interface.Unfortunately, Google does not let you roll back to the old compose window, thus you do not have any option but to stick to the one you have been…

    Google changes its policy on usernames.Flickr/Robert Occhialini , CC BY-NCGoogle has announced a surprising end to its controversial “Real Name” policy with a contrite post on Google+, telling users that there are “no more restrictions” on the names people can use. This is a dramatic change in policy for the company which suspended users en masse in 2011 for using pseudonyms – an event that users have since described as The Nymwars. The policy had been criticised since for being capriciously enforced, allowing celebrities such as American musician Soulja Boy (real name DeAndre…
  • How to better allocate research money and fix a flawed system

    Julia Lane, Institute fellow at American Institutes for Research
    21 Jul 2014 | 9:21 pm
    Research funding will continue to be haphazard if an anecdotal approach continues to be taken.Lisa S/www.shutterstock.comTaxpayers want to know that their money is well spent on research. Yet funding agencies persist in trying to explain research results in terms of papers and publications rather than in terms of people – which is how the ideas from research affect both science and the economy. Already CSIRO has had more than A$110 million cut in the latest budget and has had its research potential cut back significantly. With almost 500 jobs lost in the last financial year and another 700…

    How do we know if we're getting value for money on research funding?Flickr/Régis Matthey, CC BY-NC-SAAustralia allocates around A$9 billion a year of taxpayers’ money for research, but how do we know if that money is being spent wisely? With the Australian Government threatening to reduce the amount of money allocated to research, it is time for researchers to take a more serious look at how to improve the research funding system. Despite criticism of the Australian research funding system, there has been a lack of meaningful change in the system. The majority of researchers see the…

    Wayne Williams
    22 Jul 2014 | 11:14 am
    The Raspberry Pi Foundation’s Eben Upton was inspired to create his bare-bones credit-card sized computer after noticing a decline in the number of children learning to code. He wanted to create a cheap computer designed to be programmed, much like the BBC Micro, which was hugely popular in UK schools back in the 1980s. Although the Raspberry Pi has since found a massive audience outside of schools, it’s still an educational tool at heart, and its low cost and energy efficiency make it ideal for introducing computers into rural schools in developing nations.

    Nintendo has Mario. No matter how much more powerful Xbox One or PlayStation 4 are over the Wii U, neither console has Nintendo's Italian mascot. And so, if you want games featuring Mario, no other console will do. In other words, software matters just as much, if not more, than hardware. This is not just true of game consoles, but all computing platforms too. For instance, if you need Microsoft Office, Linux would be a poor choice -- you should use the platform that runs the software you need. The most heated platform battleground nowadays is smartphones -- iPhone, Android and Windows…

    Eighth in a series. What goes around comes around. It's cliché but describes my return to Nokia after abandoning the brand five years ago. I never expected to come back, and the app experience, while a backwater compared to Android or iOS, is little different than when I left. Cameras are great and app selection limited, but it's hugely improved because of Microsoft. Nokia was in 2009 still the world's mobile handset leader, except for one major market: The United States. As such, Symbian dominated mobile app development, even as iOS rose in prominence. (Remember: Apple opened its app store…
  • Little Box Challenge -- Google will pay you $1 million for power inverter shrinkage

    On the TV show Seinfeld, George Costanza infamously declared "I was in the pool!" when a woman walked in on him changing clothes and saw him naked. You see, a part of his body got smaller due to swimming in cold water, something he and Jerry dubbed "shrinkage". While that shrinkage is bad, other types are good. In the technology world, with the exception of displays and monitors, smaller is usually better, as it allows for a smaller footprint. It also allows things to become more efficient, such as die shrinkage with a CPU. Today, Google announces that in conjunction with IEEE, it will pay…

  • New spongelike material for effective Solar steam generation by heat localization

    22 Jul 2014 | 5:43 am
    Researchers at MIT have developed a new spongelike material structure which can use 85% of incoming solar energy for converting water into steam. This spongelike structure has a layer of graphite flakes and an underlying carbon foam. This structure has many small pores. It can float on the water, and it will act as an insulator for preventing heat from escaping to the underlying liquid, . As sunlight hits the structure, it creates a hotspot in the graphite layer, generating a pressure gradient that draws water up through the carbon foam. As water seeps into the graphite layer, the heat…

  • Mimicking vesicle fusion to make Gold nanoparticles easily penetrate cells for delivering drugs.

    21 Jul 2014 | 9:58 am
    A special class of tiny gold particles can easily slip through cell membranes, making them good candidates to deliver drugs directly to target cells. A new study from MIT materials scientists reveals that these nanoparticles enter cells by taking advantage of a route normally used in vesicle-vesicle fusion, a crucial process that allows signal transmission between neurons. In the journal Nature Communications, the researchers describe in detail the mechanism by which these nanoparticles are able to fuse with a membrane. Refer…

  • Headset Menu mostra un menu di selezione delle app quando vengono collegati gli auricolari a un dispositivo Android

    Le applicazioni musicali, per quanto abbondanti, offrono una nuova interfaccia, un nuovo modo di accedere la propria libreria musicale, forse alcune nuove funzionalità, ricerca più intelligente e molto altro. Quello a cui poche app pensano è l’accessorio più importante usato per l’ascolto di musica, cioè le cuffie o gli auricolari. Headset Menu è un’applicazione Android che tiene questo importante componente in considerazione. L’app viene attivata solo quando si collega la cuffia. Questo vale per le cuffie o auricolari normali e anche gli headset Bluetooth. L’app…
  • Modifica Nintendo 3ds Xl o altri modelli superiori

    22 Jul 2014 | 4:00 am
    Quello che spesso ci chiedono è se con la modifica nintendo 3ds xl o modelli superiori sia possibile continuare a leggere giochi originali. Certamente, altrimenti sarebbe illegale porsi di far funzionare solo un determinato mercato che, nel nostro caso, è rappresentato dai “giochi in backup”. Spesso le case produttrici dei videogame consentono a chi ha acquistato l’originale di fare una copia di backup per evitare che il gioco originale si rovini. Finirà anche tale “concessione” di sorta, in quanto il mondo dei videogame avrà come interazione focale Internet. Quindi, se…

  • BrightExplorer aggiunge schede a Esplora Risorse di Windows

    E’ sorprendente che Microsoft non abbia ridisegnato Esplora Risorse di Windows da anni. Anche se alcune caratteristiche come l’interfaccia utente della barra multifunzione sono state aggiunte in Windows 8 per migliorare la navigazione, i problemi di usabilità sono rimasti intatti. Esplora Risorse di Windows, per esempio, non offre agli utenti un modo per aprire directory multiple tramite linguette.

    Our most basic need right after survival and concurrently a key quality of the human condition is the need to connect and communicate. I’m an avid Snapchat user for almost a year now and sold thenceforth on its ephemeral premise. A friend from the States dragged me into it long before it went huge in Europe as well1 — a great idea in retrospect, since it eliminated a lot of communication friction, both formal and informal. It connects. Snapchat’s “[…] pure sharing, the ‘lowest-commitment form of communication.’”. I’m also a Casey Neistat fan. And today…
  • Automate Git, g++, Dash with Bash

    14 Jun 2014 | 3:53 am
    I was browsing around Github when I found Jim’s Git-aware prompt repo. A nice bash hack to display the current git branch name in your terminal prompt when in a git directory. After installing it struck me1 — I can automate tedious terminal commands with Bash aliases. The general concept is that a Bash alias doesn’t accept parameters itself but it can call a function which does. g++ compiler alias I build my C++ source files with g++ -Wall -O3 foo.cpp -o foo.

    Yesterday, a computer simulating a 13-year-old boy named Eugene passed the Turing Test at an event organized by University of Reading at London’s Royal Society. This is a huge and remarkable breakthrough in the AI front. The Turing Test is a test of a machine’s ability to exhibit intelligent behaviour equivalent to, or indistinguishable from, that of a human. It is, essentially, a conversation between three parties—Player A (human,) Player B (machine,) and Player C (human)—which are separated from one another. If the judge (Player A) cannot reliably tell the machine…

Even the vivid blue of folders is ok.3 Transparency—although often buggy or ommited due to being beta 1—felt natural and appealing. Safari looks stunning.

Their report was based on an IEEE Spectrum article called Introducing the Vacuum Transistor. Computers started out early in the last century being mechanical devices (card sorters), moved up to electronic sorters/calculators/computers with vacuum tubes and eventually transitioned to solid state devices with the silicon transistor. Since then the MOS and CMOS transister have pretty much ruled the world of electronic devices. Vacuum tube?

    One of the thing which I love the most is traveling. India is a great and huge country with lots of things to explore from nature’s beauty to man made wonders. I have been to most of the places in India and recently started traveling to foreign and faraway lands. Last year, I traveled to Nepal and fell in love with its natural beauty. Though you will find many similar places in India too but

  • The Agility Volume Knob

    Joe Kinsella
    22 Jul 2014 | 6:29 am
    I like to think I’m an Agile Pragmatist in a world of Agile Fundamentalists. I believe there is no single framework / process that is a panacea to the various issues within a software development organization, and instead processes must be adapted to fit the specific needs of a business, its customers, product, team and code base. For me defining the right agile process is like the test an eye doctor gives you (“is this better or worse? is this better or worse?”). Rather than prescriptive adherence to a framework, I like to borrow freely from the rich mulch pile of software development…
  • Denying Destructive Privileges in AWS

    Joe Kinsella
    12 Jul 2014 | 11:39 am
    I had mentioned in What To Do In Response To Code Spaces the importance of locking down your service-based IAM users to least privilege access. For example, if a service pushes a backup to S3, its IAM privileges should be scoped to write-only for the specified bucket. If a service is responsible for deleting expired snapshots, it's privileges should be scoped to only listing and deleting snapshots. But if your environment is even moderately complex, there is a good chance this auditing will take some time. To minimize exposure in the interim, I decided to create a quick and dirty…

    From the first day I was responsible for cloud infrastructure, I couldn’t help but feel the responsibility of the potential downside impact of running a business in the cloud. The most powerful attributes of the cloud - dynamic infrastructure, APIs, automation - make it possible for very bad things happen with a few lines of code and/or clicks of a mouse. But while I had always considered hijacking a real possibility, the story of Code Spaces last month still left me stunned. Below is a short recap for anyone who missed it: On June 17th, Code Spaces, a New Jersey-based maker of development…

    Most customers that have been using Amazon for a year or more likely have infrastructure running in both Classic and VPC networks. For these customers, Amazon's documentation is a little vague on the expected behavior of reserved instances across VPC and Classic instances. Here is the summary from their FAQ: Q. Can I use Amazon EC2 Reserved Instances with Amazon VPC? Yes. You can reserve an instance in Amazon VPC when you purchase Reserved Instances. When computing your bill, AWS does not distinguish whether your instance runs in Amazon VPC or standard Amazon EC2. AWS automatically optimizes…
  • A 14 Year Old’s Tour of the Silicon Valley

    Joe Kinsella

    When my wife and I started planning our vacation in California, we were both surprised when our oldest son, Jake, said with great enthusiasm he wanted to “see the Silicon Valley.” There are not many things a 14 year old says with enthusiasm, so we knew immediately he must be serious. Since our plan was to drive down the coast from San Francisco to San Diego, a trip to the suburban towns inland was not in our plan. But as the date approached, I could see he was very serious, and so we decided to give him his tour. I have been traveling to the Bay area for many years on business, but never…
