    Ok, listen, I have done my fair share of legendary interviews. From Om to Woz to Alyssa to Vic to Andreessen, and many many more! Twitter has been monumental in helping me form amazing relationships across the globe and I have zero intention of slowing down. Zuck and Marissa, I am looking at you.

  • How to Cope with the Insanely Saturated Social Landscape when Trying to Build a Business

    16 Mar 2015 | 1:50 am
    If you are active on the social web, surely, you get this question a few times a week, at the very least. “How do you find the time to be everywhere? I mean there are so many platforms out there and you seem to be active on all of them. How do you balance it all?” Truth be told, the social landscape is a little bit out of control. Every week, there is some new app that marketers will tell you, you have to pay attention to if you want to build your brand. First it was just Facebook, then how could you possibly not be on Twitter? Then Linkedin entered the content marketing space? Then…

  • Former House Speaker Hastert paid to conceal sexual abuse claims, source says

    The Associated Press
    29 May 2015 | 5:17 pm
    CHICAGO — Former House Speaker Dennis Hastert paid hush money to conceal claims that the Illinois Republican sexually molested someone decades ago, a person familiar with the matter said Friday. The person spoke to The Associated Press on the condition of anonymity because the investigation is ongoing and the allegations are not contained in an indictment issued Thursday. The specific nature of the claims was not immediately clear.

    If you travel to Mars, you just might be able to see the blue aurora lights of the red planet. Scientists now think that Mars might also have aurora displays that can be seen with the naked eye, like Earth's. This makes Mars only the second rocky planet expected to have auroras visible to the unaided eye, according to a new report from NASA, the European Space Agency and other partners See also: The 10 Most Stunning Images of Mars in History A combination of laboratory experiments and data gathered by spacecraft on and above Mars shows that the "most intense color" for the Martian aurora is…
  • 14,000 websites protest Patriot Act with 'blackout' and semi-nude photos

    29 May 2015 | 3:48 pm
    Members of Congress are in for a surprise if they visit one of over 14,200 websites currently protesting the Patriot Act with a redirect to a site covered with semi-nude photos. According to the activist group organizing the protest, more than 14,200 sites on Friday had blocked access from congressional IP addresses to protest the controversial Patriot Act. (The 2001 law allows the NSA to secretly collect Americans' phone records and user data under the guise of fighting terrorism.) Sites participating in the "blackout" add code which redirects users with congressional IP addresses to…

    There's no love lost between Paris and the tourists who leave padlocks, famously called "love locks," on the city's Pont des Arts bridge. The Paris City Council announced plans to dismantle the padlocks, which are meant to signify eternal love, starting this Monday. In recent years, tourists have signed the locks with their initials and locked them on the metal grills on the bridge's sides, but many locals consider them to be eyesores. Plexiglass panels will eventually replace the grills. See also: Paris looks to a future without love locks "Hundreds of thousands of locks are attached to…

  • DailyDirt: All Natural Doesn't Necessarily Mean Good For You...

    Michael Ho
    29 May 2015 | 5:00 pm
    A growing trend in food packaging seems to be using the words "all natural" to describe ingredients. This is meant to be an improvement over the previous "completely artificial" ingredients that have been used for decades. However, as some point out, the use of natural ingredients doesn't necessarily mean what consumers might think it means. Starbucks found out that "natural" might not satisfy all of its customers when it switched from Red #40 to a natural food coloring made from crushed insects. Those crushed insects aren't harmful, but that's not exactly what folks were expecting from a…
  • Body Cam Footage Clears Police Officer Of Bogus Sexual Assault Allegations

    Tim Cushing
    29 May 2015 | 3:49 pm
    With so many police forces being saddled with body cams against their (or their union's) will, you'd think this form of public accountability (but not really, because so many legislators are helping cops opt out of the "accountability" part) was foisted upon law enforcement by axe-grinders looking to finally expose the proverbial "bad apples." There's some truth to that, seeing as some of these implementations have originated as stipulations in settlements with the DOJ. But what can damn can also exonerate. This video, posted by notorious cop-haters* CopBlock (who, in return, are universally…
  • Washington State Says Its Anti-SLAPP Law Is Unconstitutional

    Mike Masnick
    29 May 2015 | 2:52 pm
    For years, we've talked about the importance of anti-SLAPP laws that help quickly toss out lawsuits whose sole purpose are to silence critics. A key point that we've made is the need for a federal anti-SLAPP law, because until then, we're at the mercy of a patchwork of state laws. Some states have no anti-SLAPP law. Some have weak ones. A few have strong ones. In just the past month alone we've discussed Florida strengthening its anti-SLAPP law, and Nevada's attempt to weaken its anti-SLAPP law. Meanwhile, a court in DC issued a ruling that greatly limited the effectiveness of DC's anti-SLAPP…
  • Silk Road Mastermind Ross Ulbricht Sentenced To Life In Prison

    Ross Ulbricht, the man behind the darkweb drug marketplace known as the Silk Road, has just been sentenced to more imprisonment than he has actual lives: two life sentences and "max sentences on all other charges." In addition, the government has chosen to hold him financially culpable for every single transaction that occurred at the Silk Road -- a fine of $184 million -- $166 million of which it has already recouped through the auction of seized Bitcoins. Ulbricht had argued for leniency, arguing his online market "reduced harm" by moving the sale of drugs off the street. This argument was…
  • UN Report: Encryption And Anonymity Deserve 'Strong Protection'

    Glyn Moody

    Techdirt has been following for a while a worrying move to demonize strong encryption, amid calls from politicians and senior law enforcement officials for it to be undermined or compromised. That makes a new report affirming the central importance of encryption (doc), from the UN's Special Rapporteur on the promotion and protection of the right to freedom of opinion and expression, David Kaye, particularly valuable. His report clearly inhabits a post-Snowden world, since it takes as its starting point the following: Contemporary digital technologies offer Governments, corporations, criminals…

  • XTERRA Malibu Creek 22k Trail Race 2015 Report

    20 May 2015 | 10:37 pm
    After my crash and burn at the Leona Divide 50/50 race I thought I’d take some time to carefully pick the next race. It was between the Born To Run 50k (30 miler) and the XTERRA Malibu Creek 22k which I had run the year before. The BTR race looked like fun but I finally decided to focus on a course I’ve already run and to shoot for a PR on the XTERRA race. You can see some of my training for the race last year here and this is my race report for XTERRA Malibu Creek 2014. Now that I’ve started using to post workouts and track the activity of others I’m able…
  • Leona Divide 50k 2015 Race Report – DNF

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

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

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

    3 Jan 2015 | 5:38 pm

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

    Marshmallow? Macadamia Nut Cookie? Milkshake? Muffin? Macaron? Meringue Pie? Build number 6.0 or 5.2? Although Android’s M iteration is technically out now, the answers to all those questions (two questions, really) are unlikely to be provided until fall. September at the earliest, November at the latest is reportedly when fully polished, stable source code will be freely disseminated to Nexus devices and third-party hardware. For the time being, developers… Continue reading Android M goes official with fingerprint support, increased energy efficiency Related posts: Android Market rumored…

    The (digital) ink is barely dry on LG’s press release announcing the formal introduction of the leather-crafted G4, and before we could conclude if Snapdragon 808 adoption was a good or bad idea, a sequel embarks on its speculative journey to market. Yes, as crazy as it sounds, we have our first G5 scoop. And the G4 is yet to properly launch… Continue reading Already?

    And so the circle is finally complete, with America’s second largest wireless network uncharacteristically late to announce availability for one of the hottest Android phones around. Behind arch-rival Verizon, as well as perennial dark horses T-Mobile and Sprint, AT&T tells us LG G4 online pre-orders will open this Friday, May 29, at 12:01 am ET.

  • Wood Chips: Electronics May Go Back to Nature

    Quinten Plummer
    29 May 2015 | 10:47 am
    "Wood chips" takes on new meaning with a new green technology, cellulose nanofibril, or CNF, developed by researchers at the University of Wisconsin-Madison and the U.S. Department of Agriculture Forest Products Laboratory and detailed in a research paper published this week. The "chips" in question are indeed made mostly of wood -- but they are also computer chips. As of 2007, about 3.2 million tons of electronic waste was being generated each year, the researchers noted.

  • 5 Reasons Jony Ive's Step Back Is Apple's Step Forward

    Chris Maxcer
    28 May 2015 | 12:23 pm
    There seem to be two major reactions to the "promotion" of Apple's Jonathan Ive to the newly created position of chief design officer: first, that he deserves the recognition and reward; and second, that this is the beginning of the end for Jony Ive's tenure at Apple. Because Apple released the news in the UK... on Monday, which was the Memorial Day holiday in the United States... it appeared there was an effort to mitigate any element of scary surprise that could spark a drop in stock. Why the carefully scripted plan of action?

    The U.S. Department of Defense's Inspector General has rejected allegations that the Naval Criminal Investigative Service engaged in questionable domestic intelligence activity. The finding concluded a DoD IG probe spurred by allegations that NCIS was making available to military intelligence agencies its Law Enforcement Information Exchange, a massive database of 506.3 million law enforcement records ranging from criminal histories and arrest reports to field information cards filled out by cops on the beat, even when no crime had occurred.

  • The Way Forward for Chris Roberts, One World Labs

    Bill Brenner
    18 May 2015 | 4:42 am
    The plight of One World Labs Founder Chris Roberts has been picked to death on social media this past week. There’s all the trouble he’s in with the FBI for his airplane-hacking claims. There’s the hit to his company, which had to let a lot of good security talent go last week. Some shake their heads in disbelief because he apparently spoke to the FBI about his activities without a lawyer present. Others saw this saga as an example of hackers shooting off their mouths without the scruples to back it up. Me? I’m looking at this and seeing a way forward for Chris…
  • “Equal Respect” at ‪#‎RSAC

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

    Bill Brenner

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

Since the sports game was first released in1993 only men’s teams have featured. However, that’s all set to change. “To be one of the first female players included is something…

  • Financial Tips For Women Hoping To Retire Someday

    2 May 2015 | 3:39 pm
    The sad truth remains that women earn less over their lifetime than men, which means they also typically have less saved for retirement.

A 2012 Government Accountability Office report revealed that a startling 12 percent of women age 65 and older are living in poverty.

    It's anecdotal, sure. But it still matters. At Google's annual conference, there was a line for the womens' bathroom, say attendees—a surprise, considering years of womens' bathrooms empty while men snake around the block (to the point it became a "thing" to photograph bathroom linesup at tech events). It's a rare occasion when women appear to actually be happy to have to wait in line for a bathroom, notes Fusion editor Kevin Roose, who compiled some tweets worth reading.

    There is a time-honored tradition of YouTube videos that feature dramatic-sounding men speaking in young tongues.

The former NBC anchor teamed up with BuzzFeed Yellow for a video in which he must define Internet slang terms.

  • Church Time Equivalents

    Rachel Blom
    29 May 2015 | 5:00 am
    Time is a wonderfully cultural thing. ‘Tomorrow’ can mean anything from tomorrow—the literal meaning—to ‘maybe in two weeks’, depending on what country or area you are. I’ve lived in Germany for example, and the German reputation for being punctual is well deserved. On the other hand, my sister’s husband is from Uganda, and they have a quite loose interpretation of punctuality and time in general. That being said, in the church we have our habits as well. Here’s a quick recap on church time equivalents: The church service starts at ten. If you’re Baptist, that means it…

Aside from sunglasses, the only apparel he wore above his waist was the Apple Watch with blue wristband. He was the only shirtless guyI remember seeing at the event, which attracted…

  • DailyDirt: All Natural Doesn't Necessarily Mean Good For You...

    Michael Ho
    29 May 2015 | 5:00 pm
    A growing trend in food packaging seems to be using the words "all natural" to describe ingredients. This is meant to be an improvement over the previous "completely artificial" ingredients that have been used for decades. However, as some point out, the use of natural ingredients doesn't necessarily mean what consumers might think it means. Starbucks found out that "natural" might not satisfy all of its customers when it switched from Red #40 to a natural food coloring made from crushed insects. Those crushed insects aren't harmful, but that's not exactly what folks were expecting from a…
  • Body Cam Footage Clears Police Officer Of Bogus Sexual Assault Allegations

    Tim Cushing
    29 May 2015 | 3:49 pm
    With so many police forces being saddled with body cams against their (or their union's) will, you'd think this form of public accountability (but not really, because so many legislators are helping cops opt out of the "accountability" part) was foisted upon law enforcement by axe-grinders looking to finally expose the proverbial "bad apples." There's some truth to that, seeing as some of these implementations have originated as stipulations in settlements with the DOJ. But what can damn can also exonerate. This video, posted by notorious cop-haters* CopBlock (who, in return, are universally…
  • Washington State Says Its Anti-SLAPP Law Is Unconstitutional

    Mike Masnick
    29 May 2015 | 2:52 pm
    For years, we've talked about the importance of anti-SLAPP laws that help quickly toss out lawsuits whose sole purpose are to silence critics. A key point that we've made is the need for a federal anti-SLAPP law, because until then, we're at the mercy of a patchwork of state laws. Some states have no anti-SLAPP law. Some have weak ones. A few have strong ones. In just the past month alone we've discussed Florida strengthening its anti-SLAPP law, and Nevada's attempt to weaken its anti-SLAPP law. Meanwhile, a court in DC issued a ruling that greatly limited the effectiveness of DC's anti-SLAPP…
  • Silk Road Mastermind Ross Ulbricht Sentenced To Life In Prison

    Tim Cushing

    Ross Ulbricht, the man behind the darkweb drug marketplace known as the Silk Road, has just been sentenced to more imprisonment than he has actual lives: two life sentences and "max sentences on all other charges." In addition, the government has chosen to hold him financially culpable for every single transaction that occurred at the Silk Road -- a fine of $184 million -- $166 million of which it has already recouped through the auction of seized Bitcoins. Ulbricht had argued for leniency, arguing his online market "reduced harm" by moving the sale of drugs off the street. This argument was…
  • UN Report: Encryption And Anonymity Deserve 'Strong Protection'

    Glyn Moody
    29 May 2015 | 12:47 pm
    Techdirt has been following for a while a worrying move to demonize strong encryption, amid calls from politicians and senior law enforcement officials for it to be undermined or compromised. That makes a new report affirming the central importance of encryption (doc), from the UN's Special Rapporteur on the promotion and protection of the right to freedom of opinion and expression, David Kaye, particularly valuable. His report clearly inhabits a post-Snowden world, since it takes as its starting point the following: Contemporary digital technologies offer Governments, corporations, criminals…

    The one question everyone needs to ask themselves when they’re thinking about buying an Apple Watch (or any purchase really): does this new pricey gadget get me the value it should for its price? In order to help everyone answer that question, I’m putting forth my own responses and perspective on this new device.

    12 May 2015 | 2:55 pm
    Not even a week into this new lifestyle choice and I’m loving it. In case you missed my previous post on the topic, I finally decided to ditch cable TV and save close to $1500 a year in the process. It looks like a lot of people are doing this now more than ever. I suspect HBO Now was a tipping point for a lot of people. I know it’s one of the things that got me and Kristin talking about it. Pain Points aka why can’t I pause live TV anymore… Now there are some slight pain points to cutting the cord. The one most noticeable to me has been the lack of DVR capabilities on…

    This week, I finally got sick of paying a premium for ALL THE CHANNELS provided by Time Warner Cable. Our primary DVR/cable box in our main room died a horrible death of infinite reboots on Sunday, and I took it in to the local Time Warner store to swap it out for a new one on Monday. The new one had a different problem that made it unusable. Tuesday I went back to exchange that box. They told me I was in luck, that their brand new amazing box that lets you record 7 channels at once was available… but, then, the support person assisting me couldn’t get the system to actually let…

  • Where to Buy Used Books Online With Cheap/Free International Shipping

    Kaushik Patowary
    24 May 2015 | 6:57 am
    There are thousands of book stores on the internet that will sell you used books for cheap. If their business is in the same country as yours, you can even avail free shipping, or at least, a reasonable shipping rate. Book lovers from the United States and the United Kingdom are typically at advantage here because a large of number of publishing houses and book stores operate from these countries.

Other years their scope and implications shake the world. This year, for me, fell somewhere in the middle. Google was restrained, relatively speaking, and focused. Yet as much as they acknowledged the need to shore up what came before, the company's focus is clearly on what's…
  • Chasing the next billion with Sundar Pichai

    29 May 2015 | 10:17 am
    The Verge has a long and detailed profile of and interview with Sundar Pichai, the man at Google responsible for just about anything you use. We sat down with Pichai to hear his vision for the Google of the future. He laid out a plan to improve Google's products through machine learning - but more importantly, he sketched out a grand effort to deliver computing capabilities to billions of people around the world. Both in the way he manages his internal teams, and in his belief that technology can change people's lives for the better, Pichai advocates an egalitarian ethos. If there's one thing…
  • Google is trying to solve the smart home's biggest problem

    28 May 2015 | 4:01 pm
    At its developers conference this afternoon, Google announced two pieces of software for the smart home and the broader collection of connected devices around us, increasingly known as the internet of things. Those two pieces are Brillo, an operating system, and Weave, a common language for devices to talk to one another. And importantly, Weave doesn't have to run on Brillo - so appliance manufacturers can theoretically add it on to their existing products. I just can't get excited about an internet-connected blender.

    29 May 2015 | 7:59 am
    With its £99 price tag and sub-5-inch display, the EE Harrier Mini is clearly the direct successor to last year’s EE Kestrel. But has the market for affordable, respectably built 4G phones moved on too much for the UK network’s new phone to wow in the same way? If you cast your mind back to […]

    29 May 2015 | 7:06 am
    EE launched its first own-brand smartphone last year named the EE Kestrel. Also bearing an avian name, this handset was a rebrand of the Huawei Ascend G6, and was very much a contender at the low end of the market, baring little other than 4G connectivity. This year, EE has debuted two new handsets that […]

    If you’re anything like me (and probably countless others out there), you have likely felt the frustration of wanting a new and cutting-edge cell phone but knowing that you could never own it. Why is this? Well, because the desired cell phone runs on iOS and all your current devices run on Android (or vice versa), and because it is just way too difficult or next to impossible to synch your information with your new phone. Sometimes, even when you upgrade your phone, which runs on the same operating system as the previous one, you’ll find that you lose a certain amount of information when…

    So, you’re looking for a new PC? It can be a daunting task shopping for a new one as the market is saturated with literally thousands of models, and, if you’re not an IT expert, you may not even know where to begin. The good news is that purchasing a new computer is now so much easier and you can do it online and from the comfort of your own home (no more battling the crowds at the mall and sullen shop assistants).

    I’ve re-run the following post several times. It’s about what the experts tell us we should do when a major disaster strikes ‘someplace else.’ I make it a point to say “someplace else,” as I know when disaster strikes “someplace near,” you’ll know what to do. My thoughts go out to those who are impacted by the Texas/Oklahoma floods. Over the years, I have written about many natural disasters and the human toll they’ve taken. I believe social media, writ large, make such events more personal to us all — a shared phenomena, even…

    A few days ago, Dave Winer asked the question to those who follow him on Twitter and Facebook, “Why do people like Slack?” Because Dave rarely asks questions for which I have an answer (I know nothing about “nodes”), I thought I’d jump on this one, as Hammock Inc. has been using Slack since last year. So I started to answer with a comment on Facebook, but within a sentence I knew this would grow into a post. First, some context Dave is one of the 12 people who read this blog.  He knows (except when I’m talking about some nuanced rivalry in…

    22 May 2015 | 11:47 am
    Earlier this year, I noted a new design of that supports “takeover” ads. These are not pop-over or pop-up ads that you can click an “x” to remove. These are ads that are actually a part of the background or are, in some graphical and often animated way, an actual element of the page. Today, I thought I saw Amazon come as close as I’ve seen it come to promoting a product using a takeover approach (that wasn’t a letter from Jeff Bezzos). However, upon looking at it more closely, I realized it was a standard size Amazon uses — a…

But I’ve read enough to know that anyone who has ever has faced adversity and challenge and ridicule will recognize something familiar in the story. These brothers were from Dayton, Ohio, and funded the venture themselves. And besides, everyone know that no one would ever fly. Why? Because all of the big thinkers of the day said so.

    In Nashville, a city that is in the midst of an unprecedented building boom, a prime piece of property has not participated in the boom. Instead, it became first, a giant hole and then, one of the most expensive lakes a person can imagine. However, Google Maps isn’t a person and it had no problem imagining it. Google Maps has spent the past several years codifying the creation of the giant lake on West End Avenue. A six year old post on a real estate blog tells the story up to that point. Since then, there has been another big deal announcement, some more digging, and a deal falling…

    It is recommended that you include Related Posts on your blog pages as they help decrease the bounce rate of your site and are good from the SEO perspective. That’s because when you publish a new article, the old content, that was previously hiding in the archives, shows up in the list of related posts and thus gets fresh exposure to both human visitors and search engines. Matt Cutts, in 2010 when Google search results were a collection of 10 blue links, recommended using related posts and the advice is still relevant today in the age on Penguins and Pandas.

Although this technology is not new, not all computer users defragment their hard drives. In most cases, computer users won’t defragment because it takes too much time or they don’t know how to do it. What is Defragmenting?

    9 May 2015 | 11:54 pm
    Rombertik is a new computer virus that can destroy your computer’s Master Boot Record (MBR) if it’s detected or quarantined.

Once it completes these processes, it replaces itself with an unpacked executable which enables it to embed itself in to the system. Once deeply embedded, the virus runs…

    There is no doubt that AMD and NVIDIA will launch their ‘latest and greatest’ graphics cards in June 2015. While the exact schedule is lacking details, it is rumored that both companies will split their unveilings between Computex Taipei 2015 (June 2-5) and E3 2015 (June 16-18).

The Japanese console-maker has once again come under scrutiny for troublesome practices, and will be the subject of tonight’s episode of the BBC’s consumer advocacy show Watchdog.

While Solar Impulse RTW project is now hitting delays as the weather conditions are not allowing for the plane to travel from China to Hawaii, words come from Airbus that they will build a final assembly line for their Airbus E-Fan aircraft in Pau, France.

    6 May 2015 | 9:11 pm
    For years now my MacBook Pro has been my primary computer. Now my only desktop computer is my Mac OS X Server. Having a MacBook Pro doesn’t mean that I don’t have a ton of peripherals that I need to connect. The last thing I want to do when I leave or return from a trip is connect a bunch of cables. That’s where a Thunderbolt 2 dock comes in. Although I’ve used a Belkin one for years now, people are always asking for a lower priced alternative. Elgato has created one the fits the bill nicely. For a hundred dollars less than the competition you still get 2 Thunderbolt 2…
  • Why You Should Enable Dual Redundancy on Your Drobo

    Terry White
    5 May 2015 | 9:11 pm
    Like you, my data is very important to me. I have several backups and offsite cloud backups too. In my home office I use a Drobo 5D connected to my Mac OS X Server as well as a second Drobo 5N to backup the Drobo 5D. The whole reason to have a Drobo is so that if one of your hard drives fail your data will be protected and you can just keep working. You’ll probably replace the failed drive with a larger one since larger drives come out every year. The one thing we don’t really think about is what happens if two drives fail at the same time? Normally this means you’re screwed…

    It’s always fun to get out and shoot on my free time. Now with the Periscope App it’s easier than ever to invite people to watch live. This past weekend I did a live broadcast from my sunset shoot at Piedmont Park in Atlanta Georgia. I had over 100 people watching my short broadcast. With Periscope the broadcasts can be uploaded for replay for a 24 hour period. After that they are pretty much history. Sure Periscope allows you to save the video to your camera roll, but that video doesn’t include any of the comments or interactions (hearts) you received during your broadcast.

I haven’t looked that the advancements that closely over the years, but when the Elgato Avea came across my review desk I was excited.

    Mike Tuttle
    29 May 2015 | 3:38 pm
    Pamela Geller was not ready to give up after her “Draw Muhammed” contest in Texas turned ugly. When two jihadists showed up at the event, intending to kill people inside, they only wounded one security guard and were killed in the firefight. Since then, Pamela Geller has been on a jihad of her own to challenge those who would silence her in the name of their religion. Pamela Geller submitted an ad campaign featuring the winning drawing from that contest to be displayed at bus and train stops around Washington, DC. (See that drawing below.) Rather than allow that campaign to run,…

Lori Loughlin made the announcement on Good Morning America. “I’m very excited,” she said. “Officially, I am going to be a part of the reboot, or spin off, Fuller House.” Technically, Fuller House is not a reboot, but simply a spin-off. That can be confusing since it is so far removed in time from the original series, which ran from…

We trash at least 20 articles a day into pocket to ensure that we catch up on them when the time is good to read. However, one major issue that crops up is that we are never really sure how much time will an article take to be consumed. Usually you quickly scroll through the article to check out the length and then make an informed choice of what needs to be done, but on other occasions, we are plain lazy to do that.

    7 May 2015 | 6:01 am
    Wondering How to Buy an SSD (Solid State Drive)? The traditional hard disk drive (HDD) has been common in consumer desktops since the time of the first personal computers in the 1980s. HDDs consist of a mechanical arm that seeks across a metal disk to find and store data. Unfortunately, mechanical parts mean that hard drives are often the first components to wear out in a computer, while the rate of data retrieval is limited by mechanical realities. In contrast, solid state drives (SSDs) have no moving parts and rapidly store data using electronic means. Technological advances have finally…

Pinhole glasses are modern technology miracles as they allow people with blurry vision to see clear objects without the need of prescription lenses and glasses. They are an alternative to corrective glasses and can be used to improve vision and sight. The design and shape of pinhole glasses is similar to normal frames, with one small difference, the pinhole glasses have tiny holes in the lenses. The pinholes are made of an opaque sheet that has tiny holes on it, and is attached to frames. They can be worn like normal glasses.

  • Our Workflow: git-flow

    Michael Sypolt
    6 May 2015 | 6:03 am
    Introduction When developing software or a website, version control is necessary for developer collaboration and to keep track of changes in code, in case a change needs to be reviewed or reverted.

Over a period of time be it smartphone or PCs or Laptops, the performance levels start dropping down and this could be for multiple factors. Most of us do have PCs or Laptops and its a common issue that we all face repeatedly thanks to all the different things we do – downloading, uploading, gaming, designing, etc to name a few.

    by Frederic Filloux On the ad blocking front, the situation keeps getting worse. Until now, the media industry pretended to ignore the problem, perhaps waiting for a miracle cure. This might turn into a long lull.   In coming weeks, a large analytic firm will release disturbing figures on the state of the ad blocking scene. According to someone who has advanced knowledge of the data, on desktop computers and on critical segments of the digital audience, the use of ad blocking keeps rising exponentially.

After last week’s Monday Note, Three Slides Then Shut Up – The Art of The Pitch, I was subjected to a bit of email ribbing.

  • Circa: What went wrong

    Frédéric Filloux
    4 May 2015 | 12:23 am
    by Frederic Filloux Circa, the clever smartphone news app, failed to live up to its promises. The fiasco stems from the smartphone advertising market’s inherent weakness, from Circa’s inability to catch up with evolving reading habits, and from an insufficient editorial proposition.  In mid-2013, many were praising Circa. The app was kind of unique at the time (see this Monday Note about it); it was built on a clever news flow rearrangement, truncated for faster reading; quotes were pulled out, sources listed apart in a precise manner. Circa gave readers the ability to follow-up on a…

    by Jean-Louis Gassée This week, we look at pitches, at the stories entrepreneurs tell investors. The best pitches aren’t really pitches. Dumping one’s entire body of knowledge on easily bored investors won’t help. The best pitch is one that quickly moves from monologue to conversation. The First 70 Minutes of The Hour. When, in 2002, I was invited to join the ranks of venture investors by Barry Weinman, my Gentleman Capitalist mentor, I voiced a concern: I didn’t want to go blind looking at PowerPoint presentations for the rest of my life. Gentleman that he is, Barry didn’t — and…

    Do you like playing cards? Playing cards, being one of the mankind’s oldest forms of amusement, originated in China in the 9th century. After a long journey through India, Persia and Egypt the concept arrived in Europe by the end of 14th century, and, a couple of centuries later – in the United States. Their design underwent many changes: they were simple and fancy, they had Arabic patterns on them, they were designed for kings and the poor, and were used for gambling and for the playing of games of skill.

  • Ask Sam – Music Licensing

    Ask Sam
    28 May 2015 | 6:16 am
    Dear Sam,  We all hear of and talk about the perils of not properly licensing music and photos for use within the corporate environment as well as the implications of allowing users to download and/or store their own music and photos on corporate devices. There is the possibility that the corporate could be liable for the fees associated with the use of the IPR from the music and/or photos. But what is that possible liability? We have been trying to answer the question internally in the last week and all we can identify is confusing information and contradictory stances. We all understand…

I would like to start with a clear explanation of CPU. Right now, I imagine you are visualizing a box under your foot or under some nearby desktop’s foot with wires shooting upwards from its rear side: a CPU, or Central Processing Unit. I won’t judge anyone who has imagined such a thing, but in fact the CPU which forms the topic of this post is…

    10 years ago today I set off on my travels for my first whole day community event. (Obviously it was called a MamboDay and not a JoomlaDay back then as it was six months before the "spork"). Looking back on that event it is great for me to see that I am still good friends with many of the people who were there that day.  On Friday the 27th May, 2005, I set off on my Mambo travels again.

Those special releases are made specifically for Joomla developers to use to both test the changes in the upcoming release AND to check that their own code is still working as intended. Despite this after every release we see the same extension and template developers wait until AFTER the release before they even look at the code and test their own work. Then they are in a mad panic and rush to release updates. Meanwhile…

    Today, the Oval Office is closed. 10 Downing Street has declared intergalactic war against Naboo (formerly known as the Republic of Cameroon). Every Prime Minister, President, Supreme Leader, Head of State, Chief Executive and Premier has been assigned a role. George Lucas stands by to oversee (though the rights now belong to Disney) the process of finalising the cast. Our world has become its own insular Death Star with rebel bases planted everywhere. But now, this metaphor has become literal for today only. Every PC springs into life, waiting for the signal. The first blaster is fired.

    As an analyst who focuses on network management research, I am particularly intrigued by software-defined networking (SDN). As SDN architectures are deployed in data centers, local area networks and WANs, network management practices will have to evolve. For instance, SDN may make it easier for cloud administrators to provision network services and connectivity for a new application, but how do you ensure that your new programmable network remains compliant with configuration controls and policies? Is your performance management tool able to model and monitor an SDN controller? If you have…

  • Rewarding Impatience with User Self-Service

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

    30 Apr 2015 | 2:31 pm
    I think we all agree that our work is all about achieving high performance, scalable and most importantly simple solutions to complex problems. Over the years spent on developing and designing software solutions I have noticed the tendency to overcomplicate things by developers, DB architects and UI designers. After a certain time the reasons for that have eventually become clear to me. What I have observed is the fact that everyone focuses on their layer. They don’t pay enough attention to other parts of the system and don’t know how they could help their colleagues working on other…

    Agile is out, Lean is in! We have no time to waste. But what does being Agile really mean? And what does it take to become Lean? How to fully incorporate this into your projects?

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

The poem IF, by Rudyard Kipling, has been a favourite of mine since I first read it as a teenager, and it pretty much describes my sense of things. Along with the parts of the samurai poem I know by heart, they have, at difficult times, been a source of some comfort. This time they fell far short. So much so I…

    Mad Men has been a favorite show of mine for a while. While I can say I loved the compelling characters and the nuanced writing, often the fun came in the workplace drama. The pitches were enthralling, the challenges and frustrations familiar, and the successes inspiring. The show spanned the years 1960 to 1970, really the golden age of advertising but – the infancy of market research. Market research is not unheard of in Sterling, Cooper, & Draper (and its many incarnations).

    One of my favorite questions to ask clients is, “What does the term ‘innovation’ mean to your organization?” Over the years I’ve gotten used to the quizzical looks I get in response, but when it becomes clear it’s not a rhetorical question, it has led to very valuable discussions. My general observation is that most organizations don’t really know what innovation means to them, leading to confusion and misalignment of resources and goals, which severely limits the chances of successfully innovating. Because you can’t measure what you can’t define, failure to align on an…

That’s the case with a recent op-ed by Danny Sullivan, who basically just solved one of the most annoying issues in the world of search: paywalled news stories. These are stories that are published on the internet but can’t be seen without paying a subscription fee.

    For the last few months news from the SEO community has been centered mainly on whether websites are “mobile friendly” and how much this will help them. If you’re sick of talking mobile, or haven’t gotten your own site up to snuff yet, you may groan to hear that Bing is now launching its own mobile search algorithm. But don’t worry: this one wears kid gloves.

In particular they face two challenges:  how to make purchasing on mobile easy enough so that people will buy their app and in-app content, and how to enable people to make payments in markets where many do not have credit cards.  One answer is carrier billing.  Carrier billing allows people to buy digital content by adding the cost of a purchase directly to their mobile bill. It's similar to buying on-demand television by adding it to your cable bill. The idea is not new…

Bloomberg View's Matt Levine disagreed fairly vehemently with my argument. This is an excerpt from our Twitter conversation about it: @shaneferro but I feel like ...

    Sony and LG tablets to come with Microsoft apps preinstalled via - Microsoft continues its bid for domination on the Android platform by announcing that its apps will come preinstalled in Sony and LG tablets. Yes, you can expect Onedrive, Skype, and Office apps right out of the box when you buy future tablets by these companies. This is an interesting and rather bold move by Microsoft. Its own mobile operating system hasn’t gained much traction, which makes all this rather obvious yet intriguing. Microsoft, like Google, has become a services provider.

    Even in a fantasy world, millennials could journey with the Lord of the Rings characters. Aragorn struggles to accept his true identity. Eowyn battles prejudice and unrequited love. Frodo is the smallest and most unlikely hero — and even with powerful friends, he’s not guaranteed to win. I’ve heard more than one friend claim (and who can blame them) that their sexual awakening happened around when the exhausted, sweaty Aragorn opened the doors of Edoras in slow motion. Many young people, myself included, started writing our own fantasy stories inspired by the movies. And our throats…

In point of fact, the MILF leadership has expressly affirmed his authority and the binding effect of his acts. So, what’s the big deal? Moreover, the government’s peace panel headed by Miriam Coronel Ferrer, including Secretary Teresita Deles, admitted knowledge of Iqbal’s nom de guerre; in fact, they also know his real name. So, his use of a fictitious name is not an issue in assessing…

    Stuffy, boring, insular. These are three adjectives that have been used to describe the Microsoft of yesteryear. But that Microsoft is gone. They’ve changed. Radically. Microsoft now produces interesting, innovative products. Products you probably want to use. They’ve entered interesting, cutting edge new fields, like the Internet of Things. Perhaps most interestingly, they’re producing software for their old adversaries, Apple and the Linux community. In particular, the frosty relationship between Microsoft and users of Apple’s products has thawed, and in the past…

    By now, you’ve doubtless heard the term “cord cutting”. It’s an imposing name for a simple process: dumping your cable or satellite provider in favor of internet-delivered content. Cord cutters have only recently begun to truly grow in number, and many of us are left to wonder: what exactly should we make of this trend? Depending on who you listen to, cord cutting is either the way of the future and the death knell of traditional TV models, or a passing blip in the radar that industry giants can comfortably ignore. The truth, of course, is a mix of the two. New means of…

Google have done a fantastic job of refining and honing its algorithm. They make regular changes to ensure they serve the best and most relevant content to their users. However, these constant changes and updates make it a nightmare for marketers and websites. Every time Google updates its algorithm, it changes the world of SEO.

    A great white shark captured off the coast of Mexico. Flickr/Brook Ward, CC BY-NCSharks are one of the oldest and least changed of all the living back-boned jawed creatures. But because their skeletons are made of cartilage much of their early fossil record is poor. Cartilage is a rubbery tissue that forms the framework for bones to ossify (harden) upon. It’s why babies have rubbery legs when they begin to walk, as the bones haven’t fully ossified around the cartilage cores. Our ears and noses have cartilage frameworks too, which lack bone, but still support the soft structures we hear…

Flickr/San Jos Library, CC BY-SAIt sounds compelling, but what does Opposition leader Bill Shorten actually mean when he says all secondary school pupils should be taught “digital technologies, computer science and coding”? And, equally importantly, why? In his budget reply speech, as part of a focus on science and technology education, he stated that “coding” should be part of Australia’s national curriculum. He doesn’t define precisely what he means by “coding”, but it’s likely…

    Early on in the Windows 10 preview program, things looked a bit grim.

Since build 10122, I am totally convinced that not only will Windows 10 be ready by the summer, but it will be exceptional too. Today, Microsoft releases Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 10130. The company is wisely putting the major focus on tightening up the experience instead of…

The app/cloud service is a metaphor for an escalating mobile business model that, with perhaps the exception of Facebook, no competitor has the capacity to match. Users gain tremendous time-saving utility, such as the ability to meaningfully search using innocuous terms like "dog" or "Washington", all without the need to manually add metadata tags by way of applications like Photoshop. Meanwhile, Google gets access to quantifiable information, in the image and accompanying metadata, around which to sell…

  • Commodity hardware loses again …

    27 May 2015 | 4:02 pm
    It seemed only a a couple of years back that everyone was touting how hardware engineering no longer mattered anymore. What with Intel and others playing out Moore’s law, why invest in hardware engineering when the real smarts were all in software? We said then that hardware engineered solutions still had a significant place to play but few believed me (see my posts:  Commodity hardware always loses and Commodity hardware debate heats up ).

And it turns out I was at an HP Storage Deep Dive the previous month and they also spoke on the topic. One key aspect of software defined storage is how customers can consume the product. I’m not talking about licensing but rather about product trial-ability. One approach championed by HP, EMC, IBM and others is to offer their software defined storage in a new way.

  • A Lean Journey Into Agile Documentation

    Joe Kinsella
    28 May 2015 | 5:38 am
    Confession: I have a love hate relationship with product documentation. While I can appreciate the value of well written technical documentation, I can’t help but feel it has a poor ROI these days. So when I started my current company, I committed myself to investing in an intuitive user experience instead of traditional online documentation. Unfortunately as the product became more complex and we either failed to contain the complexity or had features that could not be reduced to a simple UI, I found myself looking for alternatives. What follows is a blog I never thought I’d write: my…

    On a recent long drive to Upstate New York, my wife asked me for the books that impacted my life. I found it surprising how easily I could name each book, and was even able to recall the look and feel of my personal copy (some of which sadly did not survive my wife's many Stalinistic book purges). Here is my list: Four Steps to the Epiphany I’d spent years thinking great products came from great ideas.

As a publicity stunt, it probably worked wonders for Zenefits. Yes, I know they are valued at over a billion dollars. But there is a good reason no one really knows about them: the mere mention of the words “benefits broker” and “automating benefits on-boarding” has a narcoleptic effect on most human beings.

    Just like we have founders of a business, we also have founding customers. These are customers who took a chance on you at the earliest stages when there was very little to take a chance on. While they may have paid for your product in those early days, they more than likely were buying into your vision. Their unique expertise and experience made it so they could see what many others could not: potential.

Some online services even let you create an account with your Facebook profile, removing the need to memorise another password. This is no doubt a convenient way of spreading your online identity – having your Twitter feed or Flickr photos display on your blog, for example.

  • Solved: The real reason there are holes in Swiss cheese

    29 May 2015 | 4:45 pm
    Why does Swiss cheese have holes? It’s been the subject of great speculation throughout the years but researchers in Switzerland (where else?) think they have the answer. Agence France-Presse, via The Guardian, reports that researchers at a state-run agricultural research center called Agroscope have determined that tiny hay particles that fall into the milk are the main reason Swiss cheese develops holes. Previously, research suggested the holes were caused by carbon dioxide released by

  • Tools that are changing the way you watch TV

    29 May 2015 | 8:26 am
    The television viewing experience has gone through some major changes since its introduction in 1926, from humongous living room fixtures with small screens, all the way up to now with screens as flat as paintings and just as easily mounted. While the design of televisions seems to be in constant flux, it appears as though we’d hit a relative plateau in how we watch television. The VCR and DVD eras were huge, as well as the introduction of TiVo and DVR but outside of that the way we watch TV has pretty much remained constant. Well, it looks as that’s beginning to change as numerous…

    25 May 2015 | 6:45 am
    The beauty of the internet is its global nature, where it doesn’t matter that you are from the UK, US, Japan, China, Kenya, or anywhere else – you have access to much of the same content and ideas. The companies that are truly global are the ones that are winning online – Facebook has over 1.4 billion users, WhatsApp 700 million, LinkedIn 347 million, and Twitter 288 million. All these numbers and the massive, rapid growth that these social networks have seen is because the internet opens up the global market. Whereas clubs or groups, just like companies, struggled to grow…
  • Where are the world’s coolest “green” cities?

    20 May 2015 | 7:16 am
    There’s no set Environment Agency-criteria for determining what makes a city green, but some of the essential factors for ranking the eco-friendliness of a city include the amount of green space, air quality, access to organic products, the percentage of LEED-certified buildings, and any other relevant characteristics that help reduce our carbon footprint. Here’s five cities that are not only green but have that “cool factor”. They’re like the Tesla Motors of cities.

  • Verizon to buy AOL for $4.4 billion

    12 May 2015 | 9:12 am
    US telecommunications giant Verizon has snapped up AOL for $4.4bn (£2.8bn), in a deal worth $50 per share at an $8 premium. AOL generates revenues from advertising space on its own websites, such as the Huffington Post, Engadget, and TechCrunch, selling ad space for other websites, and from its legacy dial-up internet business. Verizon is likely looking to create a full service media and communications company, following the example of UK companies such as Sky and BT, where users get their phonelines, internet, and television all through the same provider. By bundling all the services and…

    In as much as technology and the digital economy had their moment in the spotlight at all during the recent election campaign, the parties’ policies contained few surprises. Our attention was deflected instead to speculation regarding the parties’ use of social media to attract votes. But even now that the results are in, the impact on the technology sector of a Conservative majority and a virtual single-party state in Scotland under the SNP is not entirely straightforward.

    There’s a lot of silliness out there – it must be the weather – that has caught my attention recently. The one that really jumped out was that the people who control Internet domain names, ICANN, stated that they need the US government to decide what to do with the company that owns the rights to the .sucks domain. “It’s not our problem,” ICANN says. Todd L’Herrou sent me this photo of one of his colleagues (not really, it’s the son of one of his colleagues) wearing the fabulous new child’s t-shirt from Experts Exchange. Also new is the…

Perhaps he should have picked a different game and maybe used a different search engine. I don’t know what the weather is like in your part of the world, but we’ve been dealing with spring for about a month now. That always means lots of new things (and a few recycled old ones). One that caught everyone’s attention was a patent that was granted to Boeing for a force field.

The other half wants to know when he can get high speed Internet and whether the FCC’s new rules apply or whether he needs to go send a dingo to Congress by jetpack. One of the reasons I don’t use Gmail all that much is because there are a gazillion people who have sent me email and I have no idea who they are or why they wrote to me five years ago.

Accountants, or let’s say the good ones, are obsessed by process charts or document flowcharts that map a purchase order and link that to an invoice, that’s then linked to approval and payment. Pretty simple really and even when things go wrong – no purchase order – you can track it anyway because the system is infallible. That is when you get it right of course. And the same is true of any job…

    I love creating new products. I love shipping new products more. That last effin 20% of work to create a new product that takes 80% of all the development time kills me. I really want to ship, but it has to be right. For those who do not know the 80/20 rule, it’s a variant of the misnamed Pareto Principal wherein Vilfredo Pareto created a mathematical formula in 1906 to describe the unequal distribution of wealth in his country, observing that 20% of the people owned 80% of the wealth. This was then applied to other areas and seemed to hold true. In reality, Tom Cargill had it right…

If any of you are using it, please let me know what for in the comments.

    I am writing a lot of business documents in Scrivener, and even though it’s the wrong way to do it, I use Scrivener’s format presets (think paragraph styles) to quickly format headings, bulleted lists and paragraphs in each sub-document. This way I minimize post-processing (and the business format is intentionally boring so I do not need any fancy layouts). But it’s a hassle to have to take my hands off the keyboard to click through the Format / Apply Formatting / Apply Preset menu tree or hit the tiny format preset dropdown ¶a to set the current paragraph style. What I…

    A long long time ago in a galaxy far far away, I wrote a script to import Asana tasks into Omnifocus. If you ran it again, it would update the tasks in OmniFocus. See Merge Asana Projects Into OmniFocus. I recently updated the script to work a smidge better with Asana and Omnifocus 2. The main changes are: Date formats can be changed (for those of us not in the USA) The Non-Project tasks now load Setup First, follow the instructions from the original post to set up Omnifocus and get your API keys.

    Josh Lowensohn
    29 May 2015 | 4:41 pm
    I/O is a show about the future of Google, and one of the best places to see what that could look like is from the company's Advanced Technology and Projects group (ATAP). It's the skull-and-bones, emblem-toting team behind modular smartphone Project Ara, and up until January was in charge of all-seeing 3D tablet experiment Project Tango. Unlike the rest of Google, ATAP is defined by its deliberate want to create and complete projects in short bursts, or else abandon them. It means that there's a constant flow of new products and ideas that could either be the next big thing or end up too…
  • Uber reveals plans for a giant glass headquarters in San Francisco

    29 May 2015 | 3:19 pm
    It's a rite of passage for so many tech companies: building their first wildly ambitious, kind of ridiculous, and generally stunning headquarters to accommodate a ballooning headcount as growth explodes. Uber is the latest to start working on a new HQ, and design mockups for the building were released this week. Uber is planning a towering, two-building campus in San Francisco's Mission Bay neighborhood with 423,000 square feet of office space — enough to fit over 3,000 people, reports SFGate. From the outside, the buildings look like glass warehouses: they're almost entirely transparent…

Lil Mama released the video for the single, simply called "Sausage," yesterday, and let me tell you, it is a joy both to hear and behold. In the middle, her sister receives an acceptance letter to Yale. (Congrats!) Later Lil Mama asks us to call her Betty Crocker because she's "cakin'." There's a lot going on.

  • The US tried to sabotage North Korea's nuclear program with targeted malware

    Russell Brandom
    29 May 2015 | 1:31 pm
    In 2010, the United States launched a covert malware campaign aimed at sabotaging North Korea's nuclear program, according to a new report from Reuters' Joseph Menn, citing multiple sources familiar with the campaign. The campaign was ultimately unable to breach North Korean systems, but would have been activated when it detected Korean language settings on an appropriately structured industrial system. The program came on the heels of the Stuxnet campaign against Iran that met with much greater success. Traveling over USB, Stuxnet was able to infect air-gapped control systems in Iranian…

The changes, which go into effect July 15th, also ask you to share your contacts with Uber — a move that will let the company send "special offers" to your friends and family, Uber said in a blog post.

That operating system came to fruition as 'Project Brillo' and is based on a stripped-down Android derivative which can run on low-power devices.  Google has kept the lower-levels of Android - such as its Linux kernel modifications and hardware abstraction layers - in order to control multiple devices from a centralised software location.

Many players have attempted cloud gaming to various degrees of success, but no-one has yet cracked it.  Streaming games from the cloud is more difficult than video streaming primarily because every second counts, and a couple of seconds lag can be detrimental to gameplay.
