    28 Aug 2015 | 7:00 pm
    It always takes the mainstream world a little bit of time to catch up to popular slang terms. While you might be ahead of the curve and already use words like "sus" and "extra," Oxford Dictionary has finally decided that words like "butthurt" and "hangry" are worthy of becoming official entries. These words aren't exactly new, but at least they're now recognized for how awesome sauce they are. See which ones made the cut and just hope that they don't become old tomorrow.

    28 Aug 2015 | 6:54 pm
    Spill a little water in your salt shaker, and the salt quickly becomes clumpy and useless. Wet salt isn't all that useful in land speed record racing, either. Wet conditions and bad weather shut down Bonneville Speed Week for the second year in a row this summer, and they didn't much help Venturi and Ohio State in their electric land speed record hopes last week. The team battled through, and while the VBB-3 streamliner didn't reach the high speeds it's capable of, it did set a new category world record of 240.320 mph (386.757 km/h)...

  • The Wait For HTC's Vive VR Headset Just Got Longer

    Adriana Lee
    28 Aug 2015 | 2:09 pm
    From the beginning, HTC’s promise of delivering a consumer-ready virtual-reality headset by the end of the year seemed fantastical (in all senses of the word). How is the Taiwanese company, which announced the Vive early this year, going to release its VR system so quickly?The answer: It’s not. While a few devices will make their way to the public, the broader launch apparently will get pushed back to 2016. In a statement given to Engadget Thursday, HTC said, "We'll have a limited number of units by the end of the year, with more to come in Q1 2016.” See also: 6 Ways The HTC Vive…

  • Does Tim Cook have to mention that Apple will be coming out with a TV streaming service at the Sept 9 event, even if the service is months away? Apple did it with the Apple watch last year. I think he'd have to mention it.

    28 Aug 2015 | 11:36 am
    It’s an interesting question. My guess, based on nothing, is that they don’t say anything about the service, not even that it’s “coming soon.” I wouldn’t be shocked if they do have some new content partners to talk about, but just not the full TV service. I think the new box, new remote, and SDK will cause enough excitement. And, of course, this will create a new point of leverage in Apple’s discussions with the TV content partners.

  • AMD Quietly Releases Radeon R9 370X, China-Only For Now

    Ryan Smith
    28 Aug 2015 | 12:30 pm
    Back in June when AMD launched the Radeon 300 series, AMD made the unusual move of only releasing refresh SKUs for around half of their products. While the 390 series saw the release of the vanilla 390 and 390X parts, the 380, 370, and 360 were all released with just one SKU respectively. Furthermore all three parts were the second-tier configurations for their respective GPUs, each packing a partially disabled GPU. At the time we suspected that AMD was simply holding back some SKUs to avoid flooding the market all at once and to release those SKUs at a more convenient opportunity, and it…

    At the time of our Skylake review of both the i7-6700K and the i5-6600K, due to the infancy of the platform and other constraints, we were unable to probe the performance uptake of the processors as they were overclocked. Our overclock testing showed that 4.6 GHz was a reasonable marker for our processors; however fast forward two weeks and that all seems to change as updates are released. With a new motherboard and the same liquid cooler, the same processor that performed 4.6 GHz gave 4.8 GHz with relative ease. In this mini-test, we tested our short-form CPU workload as well as integrated…

According to the New York Times, his lone felony conviction was "using a computer to lure a minor." In effect, a criminal was convicted of multiple misdemeanors, including sexual penetration of a child, but the biggest penalty he faces is a felony record and years in jail because he used a computer to contact the child, rather than picking her up at a coffee shop, meeting her at…

It has mostly used this term in the context of the Graph API it shows to third parties, who can then create value from it. With around 1.5 billion monthly active users, Facebook’s social graph is by far the most complete and extensive of any service in the world.

The lifetime value dictates how a company should spend its marketing and sales dollars.

    Donald Trump had his latest brush with the media Friday night and sat for an interview with the One America News Network, a conservative news channel. The host? Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin. The short interview didn’t produce the same kind of fireworks as Trump’s recent back-and-forths with Fox News’s Megyn Kelly or Univision’s Jorge Ramos. Trump and Palin actually seemed to get along, with Palin declaring at the top of the interview that Trump’s campaign was “avant-garde” and calling his backers “trumpeters” or…

    A month ago, we wrote about actor James Woods bizarrely suing a trollish Twitter user who had been mocking Woods on the site. The whole lawsuit seemed ridiculous. The specific tweet that sent Woods over the edge was this anonymous user (who went by the name "Abe List") saying "cocaine addict James Woods still sniffing and spouting." Soon after our post on the subject, Ken "Popehat" White posted an even better takedown entitled James Woods Punches the Muppet. That post has now been updated with a brief note that White has now been retained to defend the anonymous Twitter user. And, if that…

Between going after a woman who made some planters inspired by Pokemon and suing someone for making a phone app for collecting Pokemon cards, the message is clear: don't use our stuff! Even though, as is almost inevitably the case, this kind of strict control prevents uses that actually do more to promote the Pokemon…

    Some people really like eating at Chipotle. It's supposed to be healthy (although it really depends on what you order). The ingredients are often (but not always) from sustainable sources, and customers enjoy their meals. A few really fanatical eaters have devised some bizarre eating games with Chipotle food. Almost every fast food restaurant has a "secret menu" of some kind nowadays, but if you really like Chipotle, here are some extreme eaters who have documented their Chipotle purchases.

This was the same style video, using Twitter usernames to create an absolutely hilarious version of the famous Nirvana song.

  • American Teen Gets 11 Year Sentence For Pro-ISIS Tweets That Taught People How To Use Bitcoin

    Earlier this summer, the DOJ proudly announced that a Virginia teenager, Ali Shukri Amin, had taken a plea deal for "providing material support to ISIL" (the terrorist organization that everyone outside of the US government calls ISIS). This is back in the news now that Amin has been sentenced to 11 years in prison. Let's get this out of the way: ISIS is clearly a horrific and dangerous organization. But does what Amin did really deserve 11 years in prison? The details of the case against him also seem to raise some serious First Amendment questions about what counts as "material support."…

  • Bulldog Ultra 2015 Race Report

    23 Aug 2015 | 8:05 pm
    After my flameout at Leona Divide and my partial redemption at the XTERRA Malibu Creek 22k I got up the courage to try a long shot – the Bulldog 50k trail race in Agoura Hills. I say it was a “long shot” because the race has a four hour cutoff after the first 25k-ish loop then cutoffs at each following aid station. Last year I ran the Bulldog 25k just over four hours so I’d have to not only improve my time but still have enough gas into tank to do a second loop on a very challenging course. Things were also busy at work and at home so I had to be super strategic with…

Last year I ran the 5k and had a great day with a 5k PR. I entered this race pretty much at the last minute. The race was on my radar but I’ve been working on re-gearing my workouts and training and the miles have been rolling in an inconsistent way with very short miles on weekdays and only medium long runs on weekends. My approach for the race was to go in and hit a pace that was just past uncomfortable while…

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…

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…

However five months later and there is still no sight of the device, although we suppose the closest thing has come to a teaser on Huawei’s website in which they said that the watch would be coming soonBut the question is, how soon is soon? Turns out it could very well be next month when the device is launched. How do we know this? According to several reports, it seems that there has been a sighting on Amazon where the retailer listed the Huawei Watch on its website. The device…

  • What you should know about the OS X flaw

    11 Aug 2015 | 10:06 am
    The latest version of OS X includes a new bug that is being exploited by hackers. The bug enables hackers to install malware on a Mac, even without a password. The cause for this bug is due to a new feature in OS X that logs errors, which was recently discovered to be highly exploitable by hackers. With the error log vulnerability, hackers are able to create files with root privileges anywhere on OS X. Anti-malware firm Malwarebytes elaborated on the malicious installer’s threat: “The sudoers file is a hidden Unix file that determines, among other things, who is allowed to get root…

    Lowepro DryZone BP40L Waterproof camera bag Cameras and water don’t mix but a waterproof camera bag makes it possible to protect cameras on rivers, lakes, or the ocean. On a recent rafting trip of the Middle Fork of the Salmon River in Idaho, I was thankful that I had the Lowepro BP 40L backpack to keep my camera equipment dry along the 90-plus miles of whitewater splashing into the boat on the 6-day ROW adventures expedition. Despite class IV and V rapids, the Lowepro backpack never let a single drop of water come in contact with my equipment. The BP 40L is similar to a dry day bag used on…

    As operating costs continue to rise, green energy is becoming more prominent in both the consumer and enterprise spaces. Companies and consumers alike are looking to conserve energy, waste fewer resources and spend less money. The sentiment is definitely understandable.

  • Weaponized Drones May Fly the Friendly Skies of North Dakota

    Richard Adhikari
    28 Aug 2015 | 11:46 am
    Police in North Dakota can use drones armed with what are optimistically called "nonlethal weapons," thanks to the passage of House Bill 1328, which Gov. Jack Dalrymple signed into law this spring. The new law gives police the authority in a roundabout way: Section 5 states a law enforcement agency may not authorize the use of an unmanned aerial vehicle armed with lethal weapons. Rep. Rick Becker, R-Bismarck, in January introduced the bill, which originally sought to ban both lethal and nonlethal weapons.

YouGov, which interviewed more than 2000 parents and children aged between the ages of eight and 13, found that although 91 per cent of eight year olds use the internet, most parents don’t actually talk to them about online safety until they are at least nine – a delay that could be leaving children at risk from crimes such as cyber…

Today we hear that CPT expects to start mass producing such flexible touch AMOLEDs by 2017.CPT has an existing pilot 4.5-Gen AMOLED fab (used to produce AMOLEDs in small volume) - and reportedly they will either convert this line to flexible AMOLED or somehow integrate it with ITRI's 2.5-Gen flexible AMOLED line. CPT will also aim to use IGZO backplanes for AMOLED production.Read more about CPT expects to mass…

  • Graphene and Tantalum enables a new kind of high-density efficient memory

    11 Aug 2015 | 4:42 am
    Scientists at Rice University have created a solid-state memory technology based on graphene and tantalum oxide (a common insulator in electronics) that allows for high-density storage with a minimum occurrence of computer errors.The new devices require only two electrodes per circuit, making them simpler than present-day flash memories that use three. The new design is also said to require 100 times less energy than present devices.

    Owen Cutajar
    23 Aug 2015 | 3:19 pm
    I really don’t want my friends to see my other friends on Facebook. Is there a way I can hide them? Facebook gives you the ability to share all kinds of information with your business colleagues, such as important updates, employment history and even your friends. Left unchecked, your profile page can be easily viewed by just about anyone with an Internet connection or a mobile phone. While this can be beneficial when trying to increase your small business’s Web presence using your Facebook account, it can also be detrimental at times, like when you’re looking for a new job.

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

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

    I was wondering if it’s possible to set up webcam to monitor my house while I’m out. What’s the best way to do this? There are a couple of options on how to do this. My very first setup, many moons ago, consisted of a laptop with a couple of USB webcams connected to it. I was using software to upload an image to an FTP server every 30 seconds. It did the job, but was a pretty flimsy setup. Today I would recommend an out-of-the-box solution called Watchbot. I have one of these little babies set up at home, and it was a doddle to set up.

    I keep seeing the word Bitcoin come up in the media and on website. What is this Bitcoin thing all about? Bitcoin is a peer-to-peer digital currency that functions without the intermediation of a central authority. It has been called a cryptocurrency because it is decentralized and uses cryptography to control transactions and prevent double-spending, a problem for digital currencies. Once validated, every individual transaction is permanently recorded in a public ledger known as the blockchain. Payment processing is done by a network of private computers often specially tailored to this…

    Every six months I get an invitation from the folks at EvoNexus to head up to the Rady School of Management at UCSD for their demo day. Honestly, it’s one of my favorite startup events to attend in San Diego for a number of reasons. Chief among those reasons is that CEO Rory Moore and his beyond dedicated team always know how to set the perfect ambiance. EvoNexus Demo Day events strike a fine balance between business and play: even though there’s a cohort of big name companies, investors, and key influencers in the crowd, the quintessential SoCal vibe is ever present.

  • 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…

    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.

    In case you’re new here, allow me to let you in on a little secret: I have a problem with notebooks. Seriously, I’m sitting in my office at church right now, and I have forty brand new, unused notebooks. The sickest part is that I’m not done yet, people. I’m always looking for more. Whether I’m a bookstore or a Super Wal-Mart, I’m always on the lookout for a sweet, sweet notebook. So imagine my delight when I was alerted to a new notebook on Kickstarter: Looks awesome, huh?

    Jeffrey Kranz
    27 Aug 2015 | 7:00 am
    I recently wrote a piece on just how biblical digital discipleship really is, and got a lot of feedback asking for more practical approaches. Well, you asked for it. Over the next few months, I’ll write some thoughts on how to use certain tools and channels for making disciples digitally. Let’s start with email. Digital discipleship is important to me—both in concept and in practice. And that’s not just because I’m working on an app named Disciplr! A Caveat About Digital Discipleship Like I said in my original post, digital discipleship isn’t a standalone thing. Discipleship…

    So I’m sitting there… having moved our SIP Gateway and VoIP Phone system behind the Firewall and then OMG ITS NOT WORKING! I mean, it is, and by it is, I mean, no. It isn’t working. :)   Lo and behold technically OMG THE SOLUTION IS DISABLE SIP!  Well, that sounds pretty ridiculous… But I guess it turns out that the system has a native SIP handler and knows better than we do! Well, you’re wrong. You don’t know better than we do, unless ‘knowing better’ means breaking my SIP traffic! That said, there are a few other blogs where I found answers which helped lead…

    It always takes the mainstream world a little bit of time to catch up to popular slang terms. While you might be ahead of the curve and already use words like "sus" and "extra," Oxford Dictionary has finally decided that words like "butthurt" and "hangry" are worthy of becoming official entries.

In the past few days, a photo of a man on the streets of Beirut, Lebanon, has caught the public's attention after going viral on Twitter. He's shown with his daughter sleeping in one arm and selling pens with the other. Activist Gissur Simonarson, who posted the image, tried finding the father after users urged Simonarson to help him out.

  • Latest technology: Ford Mustang gets new passenger airbag design

    15 Aug 2015 | 9:55 am
    Ford’s Mustang muscle car is debuting a new passenger air bag which cuts down on weight and increases interior space. Unlike a conventional front passenger airbag, which is integrated into a cars instrument panel, Ford’s new idea revolves around incorporating a knee airbag into the lining of the passenger glovebox. As well as eliminating intrusive space on the instrument panel, the new air bag is 65 per cent lighter than a conventional airbag and measures just 46cm in length and 28cm in width. Although it is more lightweight and saves space, Ford claims that it offers comparable…

At £250 a pop Hövding is an airbag for cyclists developed by a Swedish company and has just launched here in the UK – Bristol. As oppose to wearing a helmet, you wear a battery powered neck collar that senses when an accident is about to happen and blows up and inflates, thereby protecting your head with an airbag before you land. It’s billed as the safest thing a cyclist can wear, even over the…

That meant complete strangers could hypothetically see that he had messaged them from a Starbucks around the corner, while he could see that they had messaged from their dorms.

It also shows a fingerprint sensor positioned just like the Nexus 5 2015 version rumored earlier this month. It also sports a laser auto-focus attached with the camera in it. The phone may also feel pretty huge in hand due to its 5.7 inch display compared to 5.2 inch display of LG’s Nexus 2015 which can be a perfect size for everyday use. Huawei is a Chinese company founded by Ren Zhengfei in 1987 at Shenzhen, China. It is company with…

The first being that the LG Nexus 2015 will have a protruding camera, like several of the flagships today including the iPhone 6 and the Galaxy S6. However, the new…

    28 Aug 2015 | 7:39 pm
    A month ago, we wrote about actor James Woods bizarrely suing a trollish Twitter user who had been mocking Woods on the site. The whole lawsuit seemed ridiculous. The specific tweet that sent Woods over the edge was this anonymous user (who went by the name "Abe List") saying "cocaine addict James Woods still sniffing and spouting." Soon after our post on the subject, Ken "Popehat" White posted an even better takedown entitled James Woods Punches the Muppet. That post has now been updated with a brief note that White has now been retained to defend the anonymous Twitter user. And, if that…
  • Pokemon Company Shuts Down Pokemon PAX Party Because Fun Is A Tool Of Team Rocket

    Timothy Geigner
    28 Aug 2015 | 6:25 pm
    I guess at this point that most people already know that Pokemon Company guards its intellectual property with the same dedication that a dog guards its food bowl after it's been filled with a rare-cooked bone-in ribeye (am I the only one that enjoys giving dogs good food?). Between going after a woman who made some planters inspired by Pokemon and suing someone for making a phone app for collecting Pokemon cards, the message is clear: don't use our stuff! Even though, as is almost inevitably the case, this kind of strict control prevents uses that actually do more to promote the Pokemon…
  • DailyDirt: Eating At Chipotle

    Michael Ho
    28 Aug 2015 | 5:00 pm
    Some people really like eating at Chipotle. It's supposed to be healthy (although it really depends on what you order). The ingredients are often (but not always) from sustainable sources, and customers enjoy their meals. A few really fanatical eaters have devised some bizarre eating games with Chipotle food. Almost every fast food restaurant has a "secret menu" of some kind nowadays, but if you really like Chipotle, here are some extreme eaters who have documented their Chipotle purchases. Andrew Hawryluk gave up NOT going to Chipotle for Lent, and he called his strange non-abstinence…

    28 Aug 2015 | 3:23 pm
    Earlier today Techdirt writer Tim Geigner pointed me to a YouTube video that used Twitter user names to create a punnish version of the 80s hit "Tainted Love" retitled Tweeted Love. It's pretty amusing: In checking out the YouTube account of the guy who created it, Jim Mortleman, a more recent video posted just a few days ago popped up, entitled Nerdpunna - Smells Like Tweet Spirit. This was the same style video, using Twitter usernames to create an absolutely hilarious version of the famous Nirvana song. It was so well done (perhaps because Kurt Cobain's lyrics are so unintelligible) that I…
  • American Teen Gets 11 Year Sentence For Pro-ISIS Tweets That Taught People How To Use Bitcoin

    Mike Masnick
    28 Aug 2015 | 2:32 pm
    Earlier this summer, the DOJ proudly announced that a Virginia teenager, Ali Shukri Amin, had taken a plea deal for "providing material support to ISIL" (the terrorist organization that everyone outside of the US government calls ISIS). This is back in the news now that Amin has been sentenced to 11 years in prison. Let's get this out of the way: ISIS is clearly a horrific and dangerous organization. But does what Amin did really deserve 11 years in prison? The details of the case against him also seem to raise some serious First Amendment questions about what counts as "material support."…

    7 Aug 2015 | 12:00 am
    Devising an enterprise-wide privilege access scheme for Windows systems can be complex. For example, each Window system object has its own access control list and the myriad of OS level rights and integrity levels which can vary by Windows version. For Windows environments it is critical that organizations can delegate administration and establish granular privileges quickly and efficiently. By doing so, IT can restrict administrators so that they can access the servers and resources required to perform their job, and only during the approved times to perform specific tasks.This white paper…

    This hit the news yesterday. Microsoft released Windows 10 four weeks ago today, and now the company is providing a fresh update on its upgrade figures. 14 million machines had been upgraded to Windows 10 within 24 hours of the operating system release last month, and that figure has now risen to more than 75 million in just four weeks. As somebody who uses Windows every day, and who upgraded to Windows 10 a few weeks before it was released, let me make a statement about all the positive Windows 10 reviews that not everyone is going to like.

  • Google to iOS devs: disable HTTPS so we can deliver insecure ads

    27 Aug 2015 | 10:28 am
    While Google remains committed to industry-wide adoption of HTTPS, there isn't always full compliance on third party ad networks and custom creative code served via our systems. To ensure ads continue to serve on iOS9 devices for developers transitioning to HTTPS, the recommended short term fix is to add an exception that allows HTTP requests to succeed and non-secure content to load successfully. Confirmed: Google wants me to switch to iOS. Disgusting.

    26 Aug 2015 | 11:04 am
    This year's Galaxy Note 5 is an outstanding device - combining power with grace, and utility with handsome looks - but it also has a pretty major design flaw. The phone's stylus can be inserted into its silo in both orientations, which is a change from previous S Pen designs, and one of those orientations can result in permanent damage to the Note's functionality. If you are unfortunate enough to slide your S Pen in the wrong way, you'll have a hard time unjamming it from the slot (though eventually you should be able to pry it away), but more importantly, you might disable the Note's stylus…

Only thing I needed to hear was Fred Amisen and Bill Hader. This episode: Think Nova meets Portlandia meets Vice, but primarily the latter two. Classic: Helen Mirren’s PBS-esque opening. Other episodes satirize other documentary clichés. More clips from the show found here.

By the time I was aware of the Cecil killing, the internet outrage was far more than anything I could come up with, so I passed even tweeting about it. Besides, the only thing I could think of to say that I hadn’t seen before was how white the dentist’s teeth were — obviously, a Photoshop job. The competitive nature of internet outrage is fascinating. My recent post about the…

We've just announced Twitter Video to help you capture the moment and tweet video from within the iOS and Android apps. I'm proud of the level of fit and finish we were able to capture in this release. It's the result of a huge collaboration between design, product and engineering organizations including folks in distributed offices (mainly our Seattle office).

    Drone. Quadcopter. Phantom. Dronie. You’ve no doubt heard about these terms with increasing gusto in recent months. They are everywhere in the news now; from seeing more dronies slide into your Twitter timeline and taking dronecations with Travel By Drone to an influx of startups taking drone tech to new heights. Heck, even Martha Stewart got in on the act with her piece on drones in TIME yesterday. This RSS feed only shows excerpts. It will look much better on the website: Getting started with drones

  • Gmail AutoResponder is a Better Alternative to Canned Responses

    Amit Agarwal
    24 Aug 2015 | 12:27 pm
    If you find yourself writing the same email response over and over again – like a technical support request asking for instructions on how to do something or a confirmation email to customers to let them know you’ve received their message – canned responses in Gmail can help you save both time and typing. The idea is that you compose a email message with the ‘generic’ response and save it in your Gmail drafts. Later, you can quickly insert that pre-formatted template into the body of your email with a click without having to manually write the whole…
  • Adjust the Volume of your Android Phone without using the Buttons

    Most Android phones have physical buttons on the side for controlling the playback volume and, whether you are listening to podcasts or watching Youtube videos, these keys are sometimes the only way to control the app’s volume. The hardware buttons are easy to use but they are not as convenient as, say, the Control Center on the iPhone where one can change volume using the on-screen volume slider. Does something similar exist for Android devices that would allow you to control the volume without using the hardware buttons? The Google Play store throws up dozens of…

    I don’t know who buys third-party controllers nowadays—I feel like the Xbox 360 controller is still the gold standard for PCs, with the Xbox One and DualShock 4 following close behind. But if you are in the market, Razer’s just unveiled a new “pro-gamer validated, tournament-grade” gamepad, the Razer Wildcat. In a lot of ways the Wildcat is similar to the modular Xbox One Elite controller that Microsoft unveiled at E3. Like the Elite, the Wildcat adds four buttons to the standard Xbox One layout.

Progress DataDirect connectors are often more than two orders of magnitude faster than open source alternatives.

However, there is little factual data that a certain color can actually make anyone do anything. Much of the evidence to support this theory is based on anecdotal accounts and loose correlations.

    Android Wear at launch received several watchfaces that Google bundled. Post that, once the developers got their hands on the SDKs they crated even more watchfaces. Right from the minions to planets, to Apple Watch copy to luxury watches rip offs, there have been loads of watchfaces. However, the one thing common between these watchfaces is how little you can do with the watchface itself. Unlike the Apple watch, where there are elements of watchfaces that can trigger actions, Android Wear has been pretty bland and maybe even a little boring. However, with the latest Android Wear update, you…

Then there are those creative geniuses who can produce gourmet meals at great profit to themselves and to those who are the beneficiaries of their feasts.

It is the first thing that users notice when they turn on their favorite search engine. The Google Doodle celebrates, commemorates, remembers and expresses solidarity with anything of significance. Also, the Google Doodle is localized. Depending on which part of the world it is used in, search engines display pictures recognising an event or incident of relevance to their country.

  • Will they or won’t they steal human jobs?

    Daris Abraham
    27 Aug 2015 | 8:51 am
    Some say they won’t. Others are saying they will. While the debate rages on, sometimes to the point of irrational and useless statements being made, robots continue to quietly evolve and get on with the jobs that they were designed and manufactured to do. They make no arguments at this stage. Companies love them because they do not collectivize into unions and raise grievances with their bosses, they just carry on working until someone or something tells them to stop or simply switches them off. Another argument is that robots won’t be contributing to the creation of new jobs for humans.

    Smart new developments are a regular source of good news for tech enthusiasts. When tech companies unveil their new toys, the techies love to test the products and write glowing or harsh critical reviews of them. Perhaps some of the tech geeks will have a use for the new apps, but invariably most of them don’t. While new software is developed for motor cars, elsewhere large multinationals are embarrassingly recalling their faulty merchandise. It is all about creating smart environments for smart people, but what many people easily forget is it’s simply taking away seemingly small jobs…

  • The True Replacement: How TrueCaller Took over the Default Apps on my Phone

    Go back almost two years, while we all secretly enjoyed Truecaller, we were skeptical of using it. The fear of leaving your phonebook exposed was overriding the curiosity of knowing the unknown caller. This fear made sure that as much as we liked what Truecaller offered, we were not the most vocal about the service because we would not fit well with the crowd protesting the importance of online privacy and security. Once it became clear that Truecaller was safe and adoption became more mainstream, you could not imagine how life was the same before. As long as you were in an area with some…

For example, I’m terrified of spiders, so if you start throwing spiders at me, I’ve been bested. For superheroes and villains, their weaknesses are a little bit different. They get punched in the face all the time and it doesn’t do anything to them. Remember who is weak to what is complicated, and can be difficult for even the most hardcore comic fans.

    Dann Albright
    28 Aug 2015 | 12:00 pm
    According to the EPA, the average electric bill for residences in the United States was $110.21 in 2013, which means households were spending over $1,300 a year on electricity. That really adds up. It also means there’s a huge demand for fossil-fuel-based power providers, who in turn add a significant amount of pollutants to the environment. Solar power provides cleaner, more sustainable electricity, but few people can afford to mount solar panels on their houses, and few power providers have invested significantly in solar power generation.

When it comes to its price however, this is one thing that…

    24 Aug 2015 | 10:02 pm
    If there’s one group of people that would be hard to give a gift to, it would probably be a group of gamers. Gamers usually have an extremely complex way of thinking that it’s hard to pinpoint what their desires are at the moment. Their attention span could also be quite limited, especially if the thing you want them to focus on does not really appear interesting to them. In other words, thinking of something to give as a gift to a gamer, whether a casual or a hardcore one, is quite challenging. Where to Find Gifts So what’s the perfect place to start hunting for gifts? There are a…

  • Reimbursement Barriers to Dental Screening

    25 Aug 2015 | 11:00 pm
    According to healthcare experts, around 70 to 80 percent of bills for preventive or diagnostic dental care services such as preventive screenings, fluoride treatments and others can be covered with traditional fee-for-service plans or preferred-provider plans. While there may be co-payments and deductibles, dental care settings can claim their reimbursement from relevant carriers by reporting the services using appropriate CDT codes. However, a 2014 qualitative study by a group of American researchers discuss the several barriers that exist as regards the reimbursement for oral rapid HIV…

    Meghann Kiernan
    23 Aug 2015 | 11:15 pm
    One of the most important considerations practices must have while preparing for ICD-10 is tackling the revenue loss expected to occur just after ICD-10 implementation. The biggest costs will come to practices from lost productivity and claim denials due to coding mistakes. Though bigger players may survive this sudden shortfall with their cash reserves, it may be disastrous for small practices that have already invested in ICD-10 preparations and are operating at a very tight margin. If you prepare well and employ accurate medical coding services for services provided to patients, you can…

These codes are indicated with a symbol and the AMA will track them to monitor the FDA approval status. The symbol will be…
  • Value-Based Reimbursement Model Highly Beneficial For Primary Care

    Primary care compensation has improved substantially, a consequence of physician and hospital reimbursement moving to value-based models based on quality and outcomes, from the earlier fee-for-service model. Healthcare staffing is also witnessing a new trend, with hospitals luring more primary care physicians through financial incentives with a view to seize more outpatient revenue in the new value-based care model. And the Affordable Care Act (ACA), or Obamacare, has a lot to do with it. This has had an effect overall on how even medical billing companies are viewing their clients.While…

When faced with a project deadline, a high-pressure failure event, or even just the need to simplify day-to-day events, administrators can unintentionally create scripts that are so complex they actually put the business at risk. I must confess that during my 2 decades-long tenure as an IT administrator and engineer, I’ve…
  • The Limits of Packet Capture

    In preparation for my new ‘Achieving Hi-Fidelity Security’ research project, I thought I would post a relevant blog I wrote for I have packet capture data for forensics, isn’t that enough? No! Of late, I have briefed with a number of companies that provide full network packet capture capabilities.  They tout its benefits and that with it; security administrators can rule the world.  There seems to be a real fervor around the topic, almost to the extent that it would seem that all the data we previously had was almost worthless.  I’m not sure what has…
  • Workload Automation: A Key Tool in a Fast Paced Tech Landscape

    17 Aug 2015 | 3:24 pm
    Consumers of IT services want speed and dependability above all else. When they envision a new service, they want it built and deployed in record time. While there has always been time pressure, it has become more pressing with the consumerization of IT. Consumerization describes the emergence of IT in the consumer market which then spread to business and government organizations. Users carry their devices and expectations to the workplace and want the same instant gratification, self-service mobile access, and constant stream of new apps they experience in their personal use of technology.

  • Don’t get lost, take the map! – DTO survival code

    11 Aug 2015 | 2:06 am
    There are a few topics that can turn programming community red hot. Plural or singular database table names? Should we use DTOs or not? And so on, and so forth. But that’s not the time to discuss these matters. Today we won’t deal with databases, but let’s face DTOs and map some of them around.Some multilayer applications, or even some simple ones with a legacy code, need to take care of mapping some objects to another, usually domain objects to DTOs or different versions of DTOs. Say one is for administration, other for portal, and yet another for API. Or you need to map…

  • The Art of Performance tuning and Optimization

    6 Jul 2015 | 7:44 am
    About 2500 years ago there lived a brilliant Chinese military strategist, general Sun Tzu. His life’s work was a book entitled “The  Art of War”. It is full of ideas or in a way design patterns for winning small to large-scale conflicts in the most optimal ways.Even though the book is now 25 centuries old it still inspires leaders in our times. Sun Tzu believed that one of the better ways to win a war was to avoid a fight in a clever way. In our beloved software industry there are actually quite a few who believe the same.

    I am going on record with my best guess before it all comes out. This assumes no censorious SJW vast conspiracy or sudden “electrical fire” doesn’t destroy the unadulterated ballots. I don’t seriously think there is a real possibility of the voting being unfairly counted or outright faked, but… humans. You know the species. Anyway, here are my predictions: Vox Day will actually get a nomination for best short form editor. The only corollary to this is the whole category not being No Awarded, which is possible, but I will tend to assume it is probably not the…

A uStamp study reported 65% of companies allow employees to work remotely and 69 percent of remote employees say they feel liberated being able to work away from the office.

    The last few seasons in the online business industry has seen a great deal of sexy work being penned on the merits of so-called “big data.” Although there are many advantages to big data, it should not be looked at as a cure-all for everything that ails you in your business endeavors.

    M Nugent
    24 Aug 2015 | 8:09 am
    Competition for the consumer continues to increase among food manufacturers. One path to competitive advantage is clean labels, which addresses the consumer demand for transparency in ingredient lists. The idea of creating products that have fewer ingredients and/or more natural ingredients is something that I can’t help but think is a step in the right direction. Source: However, the clean label product must still deliver on taste so it may not make sense for some products to consider this. For example, a personal favorite, the Oreo, is not likely to be a candidate for a clean…

    The popular interpretation of Behavioral Economics models suggests that because people are so reliant on intuitive (sometimes described as unconscious) decision-making shortcuts we cannot capture their opinions via direct questioning. What’s missing from this reading, supported by many academic studies including those by Daniel Kahneman himself, is the fact that for people to develop these shortcuts there first had to be a knowledge-gathering process upon which their intuition could rely. For survey research to be effective, we must do a better job of allowing people to consciously access…

However, when we see our favorite product sitting on the store shelf in a fun new package (right next to the package we’ve always bought), and it costs a little more than we’re used to paying, we’re still pretty likely to put that in our cart – and we’re savvy enough to know that the product inside is exactly same as…

To begin with, you get to enjoy less than that because part of it is allocated to OS X and installed apps. When the movies and pictures started piling up, I quickly realized that I need more space.

  • Is Advertising on Bing Ads Worth It?

    Andre Sólo
    28 Aug 2015 | 1:59 am
    I’ve often recommended Bing Ads in the past, especially given Microsoft’s Windows 10 takeover of the searchosphere. With Bing’s small share of the search market, not everyone agrees—but a new analysis from Pauline Jakober seems to confirm my hunch. So are Bing Ads really worth the trouble? Here’s the complete case in favor. The Lure of Pay-per-Click For the uninitiated, Bing Ads work exactly like Google AdWords ads, meaning they’re pay-per-click (PPC) ads that appear alongside search results. If you’re new to this kind of ad, let me be clear:…
  • Google Image Search is Peeping your PDF’s

    Andre Sólo
    27 Aug 2015 | 1:57 am
    What does your company use PDF’s for? The answer may range from info products to reports to clients to “absolutely nothing.” But if you do have PDFs tucked away somewhere on your site, it’s important to know that Google can now take them apart and show the images in search results. The PDF Search Finding PDFs in search results is nothing new. If a PDF is indexed somewhere on your site, it can turn up in relevant search results. (This can be a problem with carelessly uploaded internal reports.) However, previously PDFs were an all-or-nothing game. If it was deemed…
  • It Turns Out CTR Does NOT Affect Search Results

    Andre Sólo
    26 Aug 2015 | 1:50 am
    Without a doubt, click through rate (CTR) is one of the most important metrics considered in SEO and internet marketing. CTR is a percentage, showing how many people click on your site when they’re offered the link. The higher the CTR, the more traffic and (hopefully) the more sales. But CTR doesn’t do everything. For some time, the SEO industry has wondered if Google uses it as a ranking factor—in other words, better CTR means better search rankings. The theory is that people clicking on your site from the search results acts as a vote that your site is valuable. But…
  • Why is Google Suddenly a Subsidiary Company?

    Google is in the habit of paying millions or even billions of dollars to buy other companies—some of which, like Youtube, were giants in their own right but still looked tiny compared to the big G. So if you asked me to name one company that would not become a subsidiary of someone else, Google would probably have been my pick. But, in a surprise announcement, that’s exactly what happened last week. On August 10, with no warning, Google announced to major shifts: it will now be a wholly owned subsidiary of a new parent company, Alphabet; and its two founders are leaving Google…

    Tidal, the music-streaming platform co-owned by Jay Z and a cohort of top-tier music stars, appears to have upset the wrong beast. Apple reportedly warned the platform that it could face a multimillion dollar lawsuit because rapper Drake, an Apple Music artist, was set to appear at a charity event in New Orleans that was live-streamed on Tidal Friday night. According to a Page Six report, once Apple learned of Drake's scheduled appearance — in which he was to perform two songs — letters from Apple were "sent to Tidal warning that Drake cannot appear on the…

Long ago, he publicly vowed to give an increasing percentage of his gross income to charity and he's now up to 50%, he tells Business Insider.

    Step Aside For the 4G Enabled Helio S1 via - Edison Group, the company behind Bangladeshi smartphone powerhouse Symphony has joined forces with local telecom operator Grameenphone to launch a new premium 4G enabled smartphone dubbed the Helio S1. From what we understand, the Helio brand is not directly under Symphony even though it is found on the Symphony website.

    We all have weaknesses. For most people, a punch to the face will cause them to go down. Other people have more specific weaknesses. For example, I’m terrified of spiders, so if you start throwing spiders at me, I’ve been bested. For superheroes and villains, their weaknesses are a little bit different. They get punched in the face all the time and it doesn’t do anything to them. Remember who is weak to what is complicated, and can be difficult for even the most hardcore comic fans.

  • 12 Awesome Solar Powered Gadgets That Every Home Should Be Using

    Dann Albright
    28 Aug 2015 | 12:00 pm
    According to the EPA, the average electric bill for residences in the United States was $110.21 in 2013, which means households were spending over $1,300 a year on electricity. That really adds up. It also means there’s a huge demand for fossil-fuel-based power providers, who in turn add a significant amount of pollutants to the environment. Solar power provides cleaner, more sustainable electricity, but few people can afford to mount solar panels on their houses, and few power providers have invested significantly in solar power generation.

    John Morris
    16 Jul 2015 | 4:25 am
    Here’s how to build a grid layout for WordPress via shortcodes and WP_Query: A lot of WordPress developers immediately rush to query_posts in order to create custom loops. But, query_posts is meant for altering the main loop of a WordPress page/post (actually, it’s not even recommended for that anymore). Using get_posts() is okay… but, if you want that real WordPress flavor using WP_Query is the way to go.

    Think of video piracy, and talk of BitTorrent probably isn’t far away. While torrented movies and TV shows account for a large proportion of pirated material, it is far from being the end of the story. Even sites as seemingly innocuous as Facebook can be part of the problem. The social network is not really used as a way to share the latest blockbuster movies, but it is home to a lot of 'recycled' content, the rights for which are not necessarily owned by the uploader. Responding to growing complaints from video publishers, Facebook is ramping up its fight against piracy, boosting the…

Do they stick with Windows 8.1 and watch while the bulk Microsoft's development effort goes into Windows 10 (leaving them clinging to an all but abandoned OS platform)?

  • Come ridurre l’uso della RAM da parte di Google Chrome

    28 Aug 2015 | 5:33 am
    ShareGoogle Chrome è forse il browser preferito degli internauti, ma è lontano dall’essere perfetto. Uno dei suoi difetti principali è la quantità di RAM che utilizza. La maggior parte dei portatili, ma anche dei desktop, non ha una RAM molto grande e quando questa viene completamente utilizzata, il computer finisce per non essere più in grado di processare ulteriori programmi. Ogni nuova scheda aperta di Chrome consuma RAM. Basti pensare che 15 schede aperte possono consumare tra l’1 e i 2 GB di RAM, a seconda del contenuto delle schede.

    28 Aug 2015 | 1:17 pm
    I was at the Flash Memory Summit a couple of weeks ago and a presenter (from Hynix, I think) got up and talked about how 3D NAND was going to be the way forward for all NAND technology. I always thought we were talking about a handful of layers. But on the slide he had what looked to be a skyscraper block with 20-40 layers of NAND. Currently shipping 3D NAND It seems all the major NAND fabs are shipping 30+ layer 3D NAND. Samsung last year said they were shipping 32-layer 3D (V-)NAND, Toshiba announced earlier this year that they had 48-layer 3D NAND. Hynix is shipping 36-layer 3D NAND.

Darren’s session was all about how to get flash to become more than 5% of data storage and called this “crossing the chasm”. I assume the 5% is against yearly data storage shipped. Flash’s adoption rate Darren, said last year flash climbed from 4% to 5% of data center storage, but he made no mention on whether flash’s adoption…

I'd like to share a story from my past that has always inspired me. Since I did not ask permission from the people involved, I'll be a little vague on the specifics. Several years ago I was in a startup that had to navigate some market turbulence. To help motivate the management team, the CEO worked with the board to put in place a multi-million dollar hold back. The idea of the…
  • My Startup Anniversary: 3 Years in Blog Posts

    15 Aug 2015 | 8:30 am
    This morning I took a journey back through my blog, reflecting on my three year journey in founding CloudHealth Technologies. It's hard to believe how quickly the time has passed from working out of the entrepreneur space at NBVP to having a fast growing company in downtown Boston. Here is my journey as told through selective blog posts: And So It Begins (2012) I had originally thought of starting CloudHealth in 2010 after deciding to leave Dell. I suppose it was obvious to explore creating a business at the intersection of my two interests: cloud computing and infrastructure management. But…
  • 3 Steps To Making Good Group Decision

    Joe Kinsella
    9 Aug 2015 | 7:58 am
    One of the most common soft skill gaps with software engineers is the ability to influence others. This gap of course is a byproduct of the nature of our work. From the time we graduate college, our influence is directed more at the technology we use than the people with whom we work. The result is that software engineers are often highly optimized for making decisions in our heads, and under optimized for making decisions within a group. I like to think there are three phases to making any good group decision within a technical team: brainstorm, collaborate and communicate. Unfortunately too…
  • Dust-Up in the Agile World

    Joe Kinsella
    21 Jul 2015 | 1:36 pm
    I read a recent blog post by Adam Pisoni, CTO & co-founder of Yammer, titled I’m Sorry But Agile Won’t Fix Your Products. It’s a great read and drives home a truth that often gets overlooked in our industry: small, empowered and self-organizing teams almost always produce better products than larger, top-down led and longer-lived teams. Overall it gives you a glimpse into some of the newer approaches to management that have emerged from the Valley in the last few years (e.g. Holacracy, Lean). The only downside to the post was the fact he made a number of false statements about Agile…
  • Tips for the Future Developers in the Incoming Class of 2019

    Joe Kinsella
    21 Jul 2015 | 5:01 am
    Over the last few weeks I’ve interviewed many 2015 graduates seeking jobs in software development. The good news is: there are a lot of talented young developers coming into the workforce. The bad news is: too many of these are poorly prepared to find their first software jobs. Here are some tips to consider as a new freshman this fall for preparing yourself in finding your first job after graduation. #1: Consider Your Major I’m assuming there must be lots of people who get jobs outside software with CE/IT/EE majors, but due to my exclusive software focus, I unfortunately do not see them.

    26 Aug 2015 | 2:46 am
    Email marketing remains one of the most important ways for a company to reach their customers, and over the last few years mailing list providers have made some huge improvements making the process easier and cheaper than ever before. In this piece we’ll compare some of the pros and cons of two of the best regarded options – GetResponse and AWeber. History AWeber is the older of the two firms, having been established back in August 1998, while GetResponse joined in the fray just a few months later in 1999 under the name Implix. They both have long histories in the email marketing…

    You would need to have been living on another planet to not know about the problems that existed with Windows 8. Microsoft took acceptance from users for granted, following the success of Windows 7. It produced an entirely new interface that caused significant problems in usage. The good news is that Windows 10 is taking users away from all the problems, and seems set to be the best version yet. So what can you expect from Windows 10; let’s take a look. The great news for Windows 7 and Windows 8.1 users is that Windows 10 is available as a free upgrade & offers consistent experience…

    In a time where millions of people share their lives on blogs and social media an online voucher website has looked into the risks associated with the social sharing of our lives. From fake Instagram accounts promoting other user’s photo’s as their own to bloggers whose website and social details have been used to obtain free goods fraudulently.

  • BBC iPlayer crashes under strain of England cricket fans wanting to listen to Ashes commentary

    6 Aug 2015 | 5:28 am
    BBC iPlayer Radio went down today as cricket fans flocked to the streaming service to listen to Australia’s batting collapse during the Ashes test at Trent Bridge. Many cricket fans reported being unable to listen to Test Match Special on BBC Five Live Sports Xtra for the commentary as Australia slumped to one of their worst innings totals of all time. The issues show how people continue to turn to internet radio to listen rather than using traditional FM/MW/LW analogue frequencies or the more modern DAB digital radio. People are able to listen to internet radio through their phones,…

    Earlier this summer, my hometown of Boston made national headlines after its citizens waged a successful campaign to kill the city's bid for hosting the 2024 Summer Olympics. While some people out there may scratch their heads about why any city would reject a joyous international celebration of sportsmanship like the Olympics, a gallery of photos posted by Business Insider shows us that hosting the Olympics is really not at all what it's cracked up to be.

    NBC's The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon has been a ratings success ever since it debuted back in February 2014. In fact, there are some weeks when Fallon's ratings are higher than competing late night talk shows on ABC and CBS combined. Say what you will about Fallon, but the former SNL star has expertly created a more whimsical take on the traditional late night talk show to great success. Whether it's lip sync battling with Michelle Obama, putting together a near-perfect Saved by the Bell reunion, or partaking in any number of ridiculous games with celebrities, Fallon's show is…

At least, I thoroughly enjoyed the concept of Hitman GO — boiling down a game to its base elements and slapping those elements on to a board game. It sounded ingenious, but it never clicked with me the way that I expected it to. Continue reading...

  • How the Apple Watch Has Changed My Behavior for the Better

    Hilton Lipschitz
    23 Aug 2015 | 9:49 am
    I have the nerd watch, the 42mm Space Gray Aluminum with the Black Sport Band. It was ordered at launch and arrived late. I have been wearing and using it every day since. The Apple Watch is a perfectly good watch for doing watch-like things, like telling the time. But if you view it as a wrist computer, one that has had a real impact on how one acts and behaves, it is something uniquely special. And it has changed my behavior patterns, without me knowing about it, for the better. Let’s start with the initial time-checking glance itself. In my case I have the rings, the temperature, the…

    I have been using a set of productivity enhancement tools on my Mac for so long now that the standard, out-of-box OS X user experience seems challenging, crawling, cumbersome and somewhat convoluted. So much so that it has become frustrating for me to use another person’s Mac. In this post, I intend to outline how the limited set of productivity tools I use give me “ludicrous speed”. Note that I have invested the time to learn these tools and to create the productivity shortcuts they provide. Maybe it will help you with ideas to be more productive too. Keyboard Maestro…

    Google is starting to make it easier to find plumbers, locksmiths, cleaners, and other home service workers. It's rolling out a new type of search ad today that'll place listings for these services at the top of relevant search result pages, although only around the San Francisco Bay Area for now. The listings include a phone number for the business, customer ratings, basic details on their services, and a photo of someone who represents the company. The idea is that you can now just search for "lock repair" and immediately get a locksmith's number, rather than having to look through search…

    Google's self-driving cars are cautious by design, but in at least one instance, it may be a bit too much. A cyclist posting on a road bike forum says that an encounter between themself and a self-driving car ended up with neither moving more than a few inches for a good two minutes. The cyclist apparently came to a stop at a four-way intersection moments after a Google car did, but the cyclist remained standing on their bike. As the car began to move forward, the cyclist also rolled forward slightly, causing the car to come to a halt. While trying to maintain balance on the bike, this back…

So my proposition is that the universally held truth that mobile coverage is everywhere is indeed a bold lie, but such a good lie that it is rarely challenged. The corollary of this lie is that enterprise mobile apps can be based on web technology and that their resulting dependence on coverage is not an issue.
