    Downing a fizzy drink on a daily basis will age you as much as if you smoked with the same frequency, TreeHugger has reported. According to a study published in the American Journal of Public Health, drinking a sugar-sweetened 20-ounce / 567g bottle ages you as much as smoking, adding almost two years onto the life of human cells. The study looked at the data of 5,309 US adults between the ages of 20 and 65 with no history of diabetes or cardiovascular disease, between the years 1999-2002. The cells of soda-drinking participants were compared with those of participants who did not…

    Cyber insurance is a growing industry, but getting effective coverage is not simple. Credit: iStock It’s what all sensible people do to mitigate the risk of catastrophic financial damage: Buy insurance. There’s not even a choice when it comes to auto and health risks – insurance is a legal mandate. And most people would agree that anyone with a house who does not carry homeowner’s insurance is a fool or fabulously wealthy. So, why not cyber insurance? Indeed, the case for it is compelling.

  • New Oculus SDK Adds Experimental Linux Support and Unity Free For Rift Headset

    An anonymous reader writes: Oculus, creator of the Rift VR headset, has released a new version of their SDK which brings with it long sought-after support for Linux, which the company says is "experimental." Linux support was previously unavailable since the launch of the company's second development kit, the DK2. The latest SDK update also adds support for Unity Free, the non-commercial version of the popular game authoring engine. Previously, Unity developers needed the Pro version—costing $1,500 or $75/month—to create experiences for the Oculus Rift.Read more of this story at…

The FCC says the legal briefs aren't even due until January 2015, and it will take them until the middle of the year to review the documents and respond in court. The delay is just fine with the NAB, but probably bad news for anyone hoping that spectrum would help to…

The deal received widespread criticism; industry bosses said the 2030 targets were too extreme, while many environmental groups said the goals weren't ambitious enough. The deal requires each nation to achieve the goal independently — earlier targets could use international offsets to avoid or reduce action. EU officials hope the agreement will encourage the U.S. and China to take a more aggressive stance on fighting climate…

As I explained here, the enterprise or commercial tablet market’s upside is still quite large. But the question about the tablet opportunity for the consumer market looms. Tablets grew faster and were more widely adopted than any previous electronics device in history. Continued triple digit growth was simply not sustainable.

It unloaded a long critical part of the company, including its semiconductor factories in East Fishkill, N.Y., and outside Burlington, Vt., by paying GLOBALFOUNDRIES to take it off its hands for $1.5 billion. Dumping the semiconductor is the latest step in IBM’s unloading its manufacturing activity in favor of a new world of cloud support.

However, the agreement also states that Twitpic will no longer be taking any new photos or data and will only exist in a read-only mode. Apps on the App Store and Google Play have… Read More

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

Since then, I have been doing so as often as I can. Here are all my superstar interviews. When I first decided to try to reach these people, I set my goals quite high and even made myself laugh at the thought of ever accomplishing the goal of meeting and/or interviewing the Woz. Well, it took me all those years but then a few months back, I managed to land my Woz interview. That is old news though, so why am I telling you this?

    Five Years Ago It seems like there were a lot of shifting opinions this week in 2009. Media analysts began to realize that charging for online news was almost surely a losing proposition; Gartner was finally realizing that social networking at work isn't so bad; despite an anti-piracy "education" campaign, people in Sweden were becoming less and less concerned about file sharing — and, indeed, talk about the "death of file sharing" at the time was clearly exaggerated, while several musicians were beginning to realize that it's not as evil as they thought.

    As you may have heard, an apparently mentally unstable guy shot up the Canadian Parliament earlier this week, killing a soldier, before being shot dead himself. The attack certainly raises some questions -- about dealing with mental health, about security at the Parliament and probably a few other things as well. However, police state/surveillance state apologists have seen the window to expand their own powers and are taking it. It starts with Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper, who wasn't shy about using this one-off incident as an excuse to massively expand the surveillance and police…

    We've written a number of times about the strong, principled stand of Australian ISP iiNet for the rights of its consumers. iiNet was the ISP that was handpicked by Hollywood and the US State Departmenet to be the target of a "test" legal attack, trying to force ISPs to spy on users and become copyright cops. iiNet was targeted because Hollywood felt that the company wasn't large enough to fight back, but was big enough to get noticed. Hollywood miscalculated on one-half of that equation: iiNet fought back. And it fought back hard. And it won. And then it won again. And then it won again, in…

    12 Oct 2014 | 11:19 pm
    After the last two weeks of abnormally hot weather on the Central Coast, things finally cooled down and my running heated up some at the 2014 XTERRA Point Mugu 18K trail race. The race took place today, October 12, 2014, at Point Mugu State Park in Malibu, just a few miles south of Oxnard. It’s been a year and a half since I first started my fitness journey and about a year since running became a big part of that trek. My first trail race was the XTERRA Malibu Creek 22K which was extremely challenging, so much so that I immediately signed up for the Bulldog 25K which pretty…

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

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

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

     Eee-urrk-urrk-urrk-urk! A pair of Japanese hobbyists have built a transforming robot that can walk or, when in sports car form, drive around autonomously. It’s called the J-deite Quarter and is four feet tall. The goal, apparently, is to make a full-sized transformer… just because they can. The team consists of Kenji Ishida and Wataru Yoshizaki of Brave Robotics and Asratec. The… Read More

     Nintendo has a new online ad for its Amiibo ‘toys-to-life’ mobile figures, and the spot depicts the lengthy journey of one young player looking to upgrade his collectible character in order to win over the favours of one of his older brother’s friends. The story arc and acting are weird and generally not good, but the video is mostly fun, and it gives you a decent look at… Read More

  • AT&T Offers Kindle Fire HDX Tablet For $49.99 With Fire Phone Purchase

    Tyler Lee
    24 Oct 2014 | 6:29 pm
    While Amazon might have had lofty plans for the Fire Phone, safe to say that either they did not execute it properly or the features that they had imagined just weren’t what users were after. As you might have heard, the company has recently had to writedown $170 million because of the Fire Phone, but here’s one way they are making the purchase a tad more attractive. AT&T, who offers the Fire Phone on contract, has recently announced a new deal in which it would allow customers to purchase both a phone and tablet at a relatively affordable price. For a limited time, AT&T will be…
  • NFC Chip Found In New iPads Could Be Used As Secure Element

    Tyler Lee
    24 Oct 2014 | 6:14 pm
    In a recent teardown of the iPad Air 2, it was discovered that the tablet came with an NFC chip, but oddly enough despite sporting an NFC chip, it did not allow users to make payments via NFC using Apple Pay. It was then speculated that the chips could be used to allow iPads to receive Apple Pay, but then it was pointed out that the lack of antennas meant that it couldn’t. So what is the NFC chip used for? Well for those who are wondering why Apple might have included the NFC chip if they didn’t plan on using it for commercial applications, the folks at 9to5Mac have learnt from their…

    Back in the day if you wanted to shoot a movie, you’d have to get a dedicated film camera as it came with video recording features that compact or DSLR cameras did not. Things have certainly changed as our cameras these days are more capable of shooting good quality videos. Granted they might not be as feature-rich compared to dedicated film cameras, but they’re good enough to get the job done. Well Samsung is hoping to prove the doubters wrong. The South Korean tech giant has recently announced that they would be teaming up with Joseph Gordon-Levitt and his production company, in which a…

    Tyler Lee
    24 Oct 2014 | 6:12 pm
    It wasn’t too long ago that many believed that small tablets would be the way of the future, which led to the creation of devices like the iPad mini, Nexus 7, and Kindle Fire, just to name a few. However it seems that the future could be about creating bigger tablets, like the Microsoft Surface Pro 3 or the rumored 12.9-inch iPad Pro. That being said, is Sony planning on hopping on board the large tablet bandwagon next? Well according to a recent post by DigiTimes, it seems that the answer is yes. The publication is reporting that Sony is working on a 12-inch tablet that they are expected…

    There’s been a lot of back and forth on LG’s long-rumored mobile processor debut, with the so-called “Odin” SoC tipped to find its way inside the G Pro 2, then the G3, and ultimately the G Pro 3. But as tipsters recently suggested, LG plans to give its first in-house chip a local test run before anything. And so here we are, welcoming to the market the G3 Screen. Yes, the G3 Screen.

    So the Apple iPhone 6/6+ and Samsung Galaxy Note 4 are out and in full swing. The latest Google Nexus smartphone is about to hit retail shelves too. But even though these newer models are getting much media attention, it doesn’t mean that everyone is choosing to upgrade.

Yes, there's an actual hoverboard on the agenda, alongside a larger Nook tablet, a high-end Kindle, smart luggage, and the tipping point for wearable tech. As always, there are ratings for each item, which are based on how interested I am in using them -- they're not an indicator of each product's quality. For starters, someone finally has created a real-life, working hoverboard.

    Google's Android Wear on Thursday got its first major update, bringing GPS support and offline music capabilities to the wearables platform. "Android Wear is great for tracking things like route, distance and speed," wrote Kenny Stoltz, Android Wear product manager. "Before today, you had to keep your phone close at hand. Starting today, Wear supports watches with GPS sensors, so you can enjoy these features regardless of where your phone's at." The platform's new offline music capabilities enable users to store music on their smartwatch too.

    Google on Wednesday introduced Inbox, a free mobile app that aims to separate the email wheat from the chaff. It's currently available to Android and iPhone users on an invitation-only basis. The software is aimed at managing email on small screens, although once set up and running on a phone, it can be accessed through Google's Chrome browser on a desktop. Inbox has a number of features for better managing and pulling out what you need from email messages. "There are some really cool ideas in it," said Baydin CEO Alex Moore.
  • Calculate Linux Provides Consistency by Design

    Jack M. Germain
    23 Oct 2014 | 7:07 pm
    Calculate Linux 14 is a distribution designed with home and SMB users in mind. It is optimized for rapid deployment in corporate environments as well. Calculate gives users something no other Linux distro makes possible. The Xfce desktop session is customized to imitate the look of the KDE desktop environment. This design approach goes a long way toward making Calculate Linux a one-distro-fits-all solution. Individual users or entire departments can fine-tune user preferences and features without changing the common appearance or performance.

  • UPnP Devices Used in DDoS Attacks

    Bill Brenner
    15 Oct 2014 | 3:59 am
    Attackers are using Universal Plug and Play (UPnP) devices to launch massive DDoS assaults, Akamai’s Prolexic Security Engineering & Research Team (PLXsert) warned this morning in an advisory. PLXsert estimates that 4.1 million UPnP devices are potentially vulnerable to exploits used for reflection DDoS attacks. That’s about 38 percent of the 11 million devices in use around the world. PLXsert plans to share the list of potentially exploitable devices to members of the security community in an effort to collaborate with cleanup and mitigation efforts. PLXsert said the attack…

    Akamai’s Prolexic Security Engineering and Research Team (PLXsert) is tracking the spread of Spike, a new malware toolkit that poses a threat to embedded devices, as well as Linux and Windows systems. Several versions of Spike can communicate and execute commands to infected Windows, desktop Linux and ARM-based devices running the Linux operating system (OS), PLXsert said in an advisory Wednesday morning. From the advisory: Binary payloads from this toolkit are dropped and executed after the successful compromise of targeted devices, which may include PCs, servers, routers, Internet of…
  • Data Breach Victims or Enablers?

    Bill Brenner
    19 Sep 2014 | 8:28 am
    Back in May,  my good friend Eric Cowperthwaite caused a stir with a blog post about security breach victims getting demonized for failing to prevent break-ins. Other industry friends passionately disagreed. My thinking on the matter continues to evolve. But as is usually the case, my thinking takes me to the middle. Companies that suffer a breach — Home Depot and Target have been among this year’s biggest poster children — are victims. They don’t set out to put their customers’ data in danger and they probably thought they were practicing all due diligence…

    Bill Brenner

    Included in all the tweets and Facebook postings about the 13th anniversary of 9-11 yesterday was this from friend and co-worker Martin McKeay: Never forget 9/11 and terrorism. But don’t forget how many rights have been taken from us in the name of fighting terrorism. He’s got that right. There’s been plenty of outrage in recent years over the U.S. government running wild, violating our privacy in the name of security. The Bush Administration was rightly criticized over warrantless wiretapping. More recently, the Obama Administration and such government agencies as the NSA…
  • Exposing Gregory Evans: It Can Be Done

    Thanks to the efforts of Attrition.org, we’ve known for years that LIGATT Security and Gregory Evans can’t be trusted. That article includes a long list of examples where Evans has committed plagiarism and threatened those who question his credentials as a hacker. There are court documents on the Internet that add to the evidence. I won’t go into the full summary of misdeeds here, because veteran security professionals have heard and seen it all before. Besides, I can’t do it any better than Attrition.org already has. Despite all we know about Evans, the mainstream…

  • Beetroot could help treat heart failure

    New research suggests that beetroot could be helpful for people with heart disease. A team from Kansas State University led by David Poole, a professor of exercise kinesiology, anatomy, and physiology, has been studying the root vegetable’s benefits for a while. Last year, they published a study showing that the nitrate (a natural form of nitrogen found in soil) in beetroot increases blood flow to the muscles during exercise – and that the best way to get it is by drinking it. As Science Daily reports, their latest paper, published in the Journal of Nitric Oxide, Biology and Chemistry,…

According to a study published in the American Journal of Public Health, drinking a sugar-sweetened 20-ounce / 567g bottle ages you as much as smoking, adding almost two years onto the life of human cells.

Deezer, which launched in 2007, is a streaming service a bit like Spotify – and has been almost entirely focused on music until now. Meanwhile Stitcher is a podcast app: The premise is that you tell Stitcher what you want, and it will ‘stitch’ together related audio. The combined company will apparently feature over 35m music tracks and 35,000 radio shows and podcasts. “Almost every music listener listens to some form of talk radio, whether it is news,…

The premise is pretty simple – the jacket is covered with cameras and should you be attacked all you have to do is hit the panic button and it’ll take photos from every embedded lens, construct a 360-degree view and upload it to the web, so that even if you get murdered to death, at least your attacker will be more easily identified.

Apple Pay allows you to securly store your credit cards in Passbook, and pay for items wirelessly and quickly in stores with your iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus, and online in apps with any of the supported devices.

It has 7x more pixels than your 1080p HDTV, and even 67% more pixels than the new 4K displays out there. The new Retina iMac starts with a 3.5GHz quad-core Intel Core i5 processor with two Thunderbolt 2 ports, 4 USB 3.0, 802.11ac Wi-Fi, and a standard 1TB Fusion Drive.

    Apple has officially unveiled the iPad Air 2. iPad Air 2 is just 6.1mm thin, making it 18% thinner than the original iPad Air (and that was already 20% thinner then the iPad that preceded it.)  Display components are now laminated together, reducing internal reflection, paired with an anti-reflection coating on the outside that reduced reflection by 56%, making it nicer to use when out and about. The iPad Air 2 is powered by the A8X processor, a 64-bit processor with 3 billion transistors that results in 40% faster CPU and 2.5x faster GPU (that’s 180x faster than the original…

    About a month ago, Apple took the stage at the Flint Center to unveil the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. Later this week, the company will hold another special event, then time to reveal this years iPad lineup, and if reports are correct, updated iMacs (including one with a Retina display.) We’ve heard conflicting reports as to whether the iPad mini will see an update at the event, or if that’ll come early next year, but we do know that the iPad Air will get an update that will make it lighter, slimmer, and more powerful.

  • Hong Kong’s Challenge to China

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

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

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

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

TDK is showing their first STT-MRAM chip, a 8Mb device, produced on a 8" silicon substrate.  This is the first time TDK exposed their STT-MRAM technology. Those MRAM chips were produced by TDK's Headway Technologies. TDK will not mass poroduce MRAM chips themselves but rather seek a chip-making partner to produce them. But this may take a while: TDK says it could be up to 10 years before the technology matures (earlier reports said TDK…

    Researchers from the A*STAR institute in Singapore suggest a new design that could make STT-MRAM devices faster. Using a computational model, the researchers tried different designs for the relative orientation of the magnetic fields in both MRAM layers (the 'field-like' term).The strength of the 'field-like' term depends on the device geometry and the materials used. Devices with a strong field-like term has a greater potential to reduce switching times than for devices in which the field-like term is negligible. A better understanding of the field-like term is still needed, but this work…

His simple response was to ask anyone from the crowd who had never sinned, to throw the first stone. Each one of the accusers slithered away.I tried to imagine.

Because of this, these types of outbound marketing are dwindling just as quickly as the attention spans of our consumers. According to…

  • Apple’s New Ecosystem: the Implications of Apple Pay

    Bill Petro
    20 Oct 2014 | 10:56 pm
          APPLE’S NEW ECOSYSTEM: THE IMPLICATIONS OF APPLE PAY Today, October 20, Apple launched Apple Pay with the release of their iPhone iOS 8.1 version of the device operating system. This new payment system is scheduled to go live with 220,000 merchants today for users with iPhone 6 or 6 Plus. I wrote about these new devices here. When the Apple Watch is released in 2015, which I wrote about here, it will support Apple Pay as well. See the list of merchants at the end of this article. * While the iPhone and Apple Watches are innovative, I believe the real excitement is…
  • Apple Watch: a New Category for Apple

    Bill Petro
    14 Oct 2014 | 2:00 pm
    APPLE WATCH: A NEW CATEGORY FOR APPLE On initial impression, some might say this seems like less of a watch and more an iPhone nano. While the iPhone 6 is an evolutionary change and larger than before, as I discussed in my last article here, the Apple Watch is a new product category for Apple with new ecosystems to go with it. I talk about the ecosystems here. This is the dawn of a new platform for Apple, and though it’s clearly a “1.0” product shipping in early 2015, they got a lot right their first time out. Especially in functionality, this has more raw compute power and…

    Apple’s recent product launch in Cupertino was huge: iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, about which many leaks had already informed us Apple Watch, the previously rumored iWatch saw the light of day, though it cannnot be ordered until next year. Read about it in my next article here Two new ecosystems — which are the truly revolutionary part of the announcement — Apple Pay and HealthKit. I’ll tell you why these will be significant.

    4 Sep 2014 | 8:41 pm
    VMWORLD 2014 SAN FRANCISCO: FINAL DAY VMworld does something special for the Press and Bloggers, it reserves several tables near the front of the auditorium with power cords and a special WiFi feed. This makes it easy to take lousy low light photos from one’s iPhone. Having written on Day 1 and Day 2 of VMworld, on the last day we learned that attendees had attended 9,300 labs. And they raised $248,460 through Destination GiveBack. The last day is usually reserved for innovations, last year’s was about robots and 3D printing. This time: People Plus Machines.

  • Innovate Calgary to Open 'Co-Program’ Space Called The Inc.

    24 Oct 2014 | 3:12 pm
    Innovate Calgary is adding a new service to their portfolio, announcing the opening of The Inc. later this year. The Inc. is a coworking space for early stage startups in the technology space for companies within Calgary and Southern Alberta, but will offer more than just desk space. “It’s designed in the spirit of a coworking space if you think about it today in terms of the physical environment, but The Inc. is more of a ‘co-program’ space,” says Steven McIlvenna, Director of Entrepreneur Development at Innovate Calgary.

  • StarTech.com's Aggressive Growth Matched by Blistering Hiring Pace

    24 Oct 2014 | 2:08 pm
    StarTech.com is rapidly growing and wants you to be part of the team. The London-born company isn't a startup—it was founded in 1985 by Paul Seed and Ken Kalopsis who met at  Western University—but these days it's certainly acting like one: the Canadian tech firm has doubled its employee base in the last two years. This global company champions a healthy workplace, encouraging employees to have fun ("have fun" is in fact in their core statement). StarTech.com also cultivates a culture of philanthropy, encouraging staff to give back to the community. Of course, it's difficult…

  • The Online Video Biz Is Maturing, Just Look At Big Frame’s Transition From YouTube Network To Talent Management Shop

    Joshua Cohen
    24 Oct 2014 | 5:43 pm
    The core value proposition most YouTube multi-channel networks offer creators is simple. “You be creative and create. We’ll handle everything else.” That first part is straightforward. While companies that aggregate YouTube channels may have different areas of expertise (for instance, StyleHaul focuses on style and beauty) and/or varying viewership objectives (for example, Endemol is developing a “Premium Channel Network” with very few creators, while places like Fullscreen and Maker Studios are vying for massive scale) they all want to ensure their talent keeps making quality…
  • Report: RTL Group May Acquire Stylehaul Within The Next Two Weeks

    Stylehaul may have found a buyer. According to a report by Variety, the multi-channel network (MCN) with a particular focus on fashion, style, and beauty content is close to being acquired by European broadcasting conglomerate RTL Group. Variety’s sources claim that the deal could be done “within the next two weeks.” If the deal closes, it will end several months of speculation about Stylehaul’s status. In August, it was rumored that several companies–including Amazon, 21st Century Fox, Hearst, and Condé Nast–were interested in purchasing the MCN. No exact…
  • Indie Spotlight: ‘Plant’ Pits Megachurch Vs. Ministry, Biblical Comedy Ensues

    Bree Brouwer
    24 Oct 2014 | 3:12 pm
    Despite what the title may indicate at first glance, the web series Plant has nothing to do with flora. In fact, the 15-episode mockumentary series uses the term more… religiously. Plant (as told by the fake documentary team behind the camera à la The Office) shows the efforts of Reverend Todd Lawn and his wife Tammy as they leave their rural, Southern ministry to plant a church in New York City. Along with their friend Gwendolyn Jones, the religious trio manages to get their religious roots growing in the Big Apple. But their joy is short-lived when Paulette Whack, the power-hungry…
  • YouTube, With Bigger Plans, Gets Set To Shut Down Its Music Disco

    24 Oct 2014 | 1:37 pm
    YouTube is the world’s biggest video site, but it is also an expansive jukebox for music fans who want to listen to their favorite songs on demand. YouTube is developing a subscription-based service that will cater to that class of viewers, but before it does, it will shut down its existing music search engine. YouTube is shuttering its “Disco” feature, which automatically generated curated playlists based on specific artists. The YouTube Disco featured a minimalist, easy-to-use design. Users typed the name of an artist into a search bar and were then sent to a separate…

Codebox Upon further review, I found that Codebox is set apart from your usual IDE choices. Codebox works on all platforms, including multiple OS platforms—interestingly enough—the Chromebook, which would also then double as your Windows version of Codebox since it runs in Google Chrome. This is all fine and good, but that still isn’t what really sets Codebox apart from the pack. Codebox is an open source project that lets you…

    I love the fact that the Internet has made it so much quicker and easier for information and ideas to spread. It’s something we take for granted all the time. For example, just fifty years ago Christians would’ve had to use one of those big concordance books if they wanted to know how many times the word “love” appeared in the Bible. Yuck! How cumbersome. A task that would’ve taken them three hours or more, I can now do in just thirty seconds with the help of the web.

  • World Wide Web’s Twentieth Anniversary

    Robert Saunders
    1 May 2013 | 8:19 am
    On April 30, 1993, the World Wide Web was born. Today we just call it “the Web”; while other mistakenly call it “the Internet”. The Internet is just the basic tools or platform for delivering the web’s content. (An earlier post stated August 1991 as the birthday, but that version wasn’t publicly accessible. On April 1993, the page was made public.) And on April 20, 1993, the very first web page was published. Here’s a screenshot: To mark the anniversary, CERN has republished that page. Though launched in 1993, it was “built” in 1992. Dan…
  • Car Accessories for Samsung Galaxy S3

    Robert Saunders
    4 Dec 2012 | 9:23 pm
    Two years ago, when the Samsung Galaxy series of phones were released, I, rather famously, posted three articles as to why “Samsung Vibrant is NOT my new Android Phone (Part One)“, (Part Two), (Part Three). Then, this past August, pretty much two years from then, I upgraded to the new Samsung Galaxy S3, and I couldn’t be happier.  All the problems I experienced with the Samsung Vibrant are gone, and there are so many new features I haven’t quite figured out how to use them all, but one thing is certain: I want to use this device safely in my car. So I’ve done a…

    To a company that operated via typewriters and written letters, the concept of electronics worming their way into the corporate sphere might have seemed ridiculous. Of course, this might also have been the same company that never foresaw the appearance of DOS computers, or mobile phones, or the rise of the modern laptop. Technology has always come across as a boon to businesses, enabling faster communication and creating a more reliable, interconnected entity overall. These changes were not always easy, however, and most of them came gradually and at a great cost. In this day and age,…

    Technology continues its relentless march forward, which means that every year we are granted new and improved versions of our old devices. It can be difficult to understand the need to drop everything in favor of the newest tech, especially when so many of us are still using the laptops we bought for our first year of college. However, what we don’t realize is how our old tools are seriously slowing us down. While you may be able to get by with your old tools, your performance is likely lacking.

    Judging by the number of television commercials touting the benefits of online banking — you can transfer money while waiting in line at the grocery store, or in the amount of time it takes to warm up for a tennis serve! — you might think that anyone with a smartphone is using their bank’s mobile application. After all, it’s hard to beat the convenience of instant transfers, making deposits without visiting the bank, and the ability to check your balance before you hit the checkout line.

    Ever since the first Macintosh, Apple has boasted of their machines’ superiority when it comes to virus protection, and their users usually list this as a major deciding factor between Apple’s products and their competitors. However, with the exponential growth Apple has received in the past decade, more and more tricky hackers are looking to disprove Apple’s claims. Malware and viruses specifically designed for Apple products are on the rise, putting the spotlight on Apple’s security efforts. In mid-September, Apple finally released an update to its devices’ operating system that…

Apple have yet to respond to this but bearing in mind the device is made of aluminum, this was always going to be a possibility if enough force was applied. The video below demonstrates how easily the iPhone 6 can be bent by hand! Have you had problems? Drop us a message in the comments below.

Media analysts began to realize that charging for online news was almost surely a losing proposition; Gartner was finally realizing that social networking at work isn't so bad; despite an anti-piracy "education" campaign, people in Sweden were becoming less and less concerned about file sharing — and, indeed, talk about the "death of file sharing" at the time was clearly exaggerated, while several musicians were beginning to realize that it's not as evil as they thought.

    As you may have heard, an apparently mentally unstable guy shot up the Canadian Parliament earlier this week, killing a soldier, before being shot dead himself. The attack certainly raises some questions -- about dealing with mental health, about security at the Parliament and probably a few other things as well. However, police state/surveillance state apologists have seen the window to expand their own powers and are taking it. It starts with Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper, who wasn't shy about using this one-off incident as an excuse to massively expand the surveillance and police…

Hollywood miscalculated on one-half of that equation: iiNet fought back. And it fought back hard. And it won. And then it won again. And then it won again, in…

    Seeing someone else wear the same thing as you sucks. It’s the most noticeable possible reminder that your tastes are neither discerning nor unique. It is always a terrifying experience. Upon seeing a stranger wearing the exact same thing as you, when has your reaction not been to immediately break eye contact and change direction? Probably never. It’s an instinct. I’ll bet it’s a built-in mechanism in the brain. Anyway, it’s like ten times worse when it happens at Halloween. If you were excited about winning the costume contest, all hope of that immediately goes…

The Wine Condoms, which really do come in traditional condom packaging, are rubbery stoppers that can be rolled down over an open bottle of wine. The fit looks pretty secure, which is great, because flat, tasteless wine isn’t going to spice up anyone’s night. Wine Condoms currently only come in Tuxedo Black (gotta keep things classy when it comes to wine). You can grab a box of 10 Wine Condoms for $10. The post…

    Love watching porn, but consistently disappointed by subpar audio and muted voices (and moans)? Wait, really? You are? Um, alright, guess there are some earphones with your name on them, then. The Ladobi Erotic Film Earphones have reportedly been tested and retested with one goal in mind—to make human voices sound as erotic as possible. Supposedly, this means that when using these earphones, female voices will sound ‘more pleasing and less sharp,’ while male voices will ‘sound fuller and rounder.’ I honestly don’t know what any of that is supposed to mean, or…

    The best selfies are the ones you take with mad stacks in the background, preferably with one stack fanned out in your hand and another stack or five raining down around you.

This is known.   But, everyone’s taking selfies with Benjamins and Jacksons (or Washingtons and Lincolns, you work with what you got). It’s time to put those greenbacks away, and start flaunting your wealth in real style. Gold style.

    This has happened to all of us –  you hand your smartphone to someone else to show them a picture, and they will eventually start swiping left and right through the gallery.

    Ever downloaded a video from the internet that is barely audible? Fixing the audio volume is a simple matter of demuxing the video file into its constituting video and audio channels, adding a constant gain to the audio channel and then packing both together into a video container. This tutorial will show you how to do that. Years ago, I wrote a similar tutorial showing readers how to increase the volume of the audio channel of a video file using a software called VirtualDub.

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

Ideally, striking the balance between quality and SEO would not only open your blog post to discovery, but can even lead to and sustain a loyal readership.

    I’m honored when people call Hammock Inc. one of the agencies that pioneered content marketing. (This month marks our 23rd anniversary.) However, I’ve always felt the term “content marketing” can be confusing when it’s applied to everything from blogging and social media to animated kitten GIFs. Unfortunately, when a term is used to label anything, it can start to mean very little.

    (See update at end of post.) Because I’m not only the “head helper,” but also the “head recipient of email” at SmallBusiness.com, I receive an endless stream of pitches from people with titles like “PR manager.” Unfortunately, most (not all, but most) of the email is boilerplate crap sent to websites that sound like, maybe, they could be visited by small business owners. Once in a while, I’ll see one of these worthless pitches and recall how long, long ago, I used to run a public relations firm. I can recall obsessing over to whom and how we…
  • How Millennials (Not Al Gore) Invented the Internet

    Rex Hammock

    Editor’s Note For this post, the term Millennial refers to people born between 1982 and 2004. (Math help: People who are currently (i.e., 2014) between the ages of 10 and 32.) Also, while this post refers to a golden age, NOTHING in it refers to fringe New Testament apocalyptic theology. Introduction During the first part of the 20th century, the french philosopher and sociologist Maurice Halbwachs advanced the idea of “collective memory” — a shared pool of information held in the memories of two or more members of a group. Or at least that’s what a group of two…

All I have done is updated the Macs to the recently released OS X Yosemite and also downloaded the latest version of Apple iMovie, Keynote and other Mac software.

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

    24 Oct 2014 | 2:15 pm
    There were rumors that LG was planning on building their own SoC, and it looks like those rumors have checked out today with the announcement of their NUCLUN Qcta-Core SoC. This SoC appears to be in a big.LITTLE ARM configuration with four A15 cores paired up with four A7 cores. This is an older implementation of an octa-core CPU design, something similar to what we would see from MediaTek or Nvidia in their last generation of SoCs. For that alone, the timing of this chip seems a bit odd. MediaTek, Nvidia and Qualcomm are all running on 64-bit ARMv8 custom chips (Nvidia) or ARM A57 cores…
  • Destiny Has A New Engram Farming Spot That’s Faster Than Ever

    Derek Strickland
    24 Oct 2014 | 5:50 am
    A team of Guardians has found a new incredibly fast and easy way to amass rare engrams in Destiny. There’s a very special staircase on Earth’s Cosmodrome that can produce rare and legendary drops even faster than the original Loot Cave. The trick of it lies in a special doorway that belches out waves of enemies in amazingly fast respawn rates. These enemies spill out engrams after being unceremoniously wiped out, and they always come back for more. The new “loot cave” is one of the first areas you can find in the game, and is right next to the crashed starship. The new…

    Sadly it seems pretty common place these days to hear of big companies being hacked and having thousands, if not millions of credit card numbers stolen and resold. When Apple announced Apple Pay, I was very interested to say the least. The idea of a payment system that breaks away from all the traditional pitfalls of credit/debit card payments is something that we can all appreciate. The concept behind Apple Pay is simple. If you have an iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus then you have the necessary hardware (NFC – near field communications) to allow for wireless transmission of data from your…

If you want to call the new method, we have to pass the additional parameter “PortalId”.

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

  • Accountability

    Alex Goldfayn
    20 Oct 2014 | 3:33 pm
    My average client grows by 15% to 20% in their first year with me. On the low end, some clients grow by “just” 5% or 10% because you can stumble accidentally into that kind of growth after experiencing the mindset change we work on, and applying just a few of the techniques I teach. On the high end, I have clients who grow by 30% and even more in their first year. (And that’s annual, from now until the end of time, as long as you choose to implement the marketing we create for you.) I’ve analyzed what separates the top growers from the ones who grow the least.
  • Two Parallel Tracks

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

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

    The fourth quarter of the year starts this week, so here are some things to think about as the calendar year enters its home stretch: What’s your lowest hanging fruit for revenue growth in coming three months? List one product, service, event or opportunity now. What can you do that you’re not doing now that would grow your sales the easiest, fastest and most? List at least one behavior now. Which high potential prospects (who did not buy) have you communicated with this year who you can revisit in the fourth quarter? List three now. Finally, give me one action, activity or event…
  • Revenue Questions

    Alex Goldfayn
    22 Sep 2014 | 5:41 am
    Are you making time for revenue growth? It’s a proactive pursuit. You cannot spend your days reacting to customers’ issues and significantly grow your organization. Are you behaving boldly? Because marketing it no place for modesty. You improve lives and companies. Act like it. Are you asking for testimonials and referrals regularly? These are among the best and easiest ways to grow sales. Are multiple people at your company consistently asking the “Did You Know” question? On average, customers are only aware of about 30 percent of all that they can buy from you.

    Sometimes it’s tough to tell if Shia Labeouf is pulling all our legs or if he’s really that guy walking around with an unkempt beard, wearing Uggs, grabbing Alan Cumming’s ass. The Transformers star has had some negative press of late for his antics, such as wearing a brown paper bag to a press conference, or getting arrested for disrupting a performance of Cabaret. But he says his recent experience in filming Fury with Brad Pitt changed him. In fact, he says, he became a Chirstian. “I found God doing Fury,” he told Interview Magazine. “I became a Christian man, and not in a…

The judge who sentenced Pistorius spoke about why he is sending him to prison, rather than straight to house arrest. “I am of the view that a non-custodial sentence would send the wrong message to the community,” Judge Thokozile Masipasaid, “but a long sentence would not be appropriate because it would lack the elements of mercy,” Pistorius will be eligible to apply for house…

During his late night show at the Trocadero in Philadelphia last week, Buress went on a rather lengthy rant about the legendary comedian. Not only does Buress call out Cosby’s perceived self-righteousness, he also calls him out for his checkered past concerning sexual assault.

    HTC has brought a plethora of devices to India as it aims to boost sales in all the segments. Most of these devices have been announced internationally so their arrival was more than expected. The surprise launch was the HTC M8 Eye, which is basically the same phone as the HTC M8, though with a 13 MP regular camera instead of the Ultra Pixels unit that HTC has been propagating for a while. Other than the camera, the specifications of the M8 Eye are exactly like the M8, but the biggest surprise is the price, as the M8 Eye is priced at Rs 38,990, much lower than the HTC M8 with Ultra Pixel…

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

    According to the Center of Digital Education, K-12 schools in the U.S. will spend almost $10 billion on educational technology in 2014. In higher education, the National Retail Federation states that student spending for electronics (tablets, laptops, etc.) is up 20% from last year. There’s no doubt that classrooms are going digital – yet even with the increase in tablets, Chromebooks and other mobile devices, there remains a strong need to print. But printing from these mobile devices can be a challenge – with software downloads and kludgy apps that may or may not be effective. With…

    Marty McFly (played by Canadian actor Michael J. Fox) amazed people in the 1989 Hollywood blockbuster, Back to the Future II with his hover board. Even after a period of three decades, the appeal created by the fictional floating skateboard has not faded away. The way McFly dodges a gang of bad guys or navigates behind a bully’s pickup truck is so sensational that it surpasses all other futuristic gadgets presented in the movie. Nobody forgot the flying skateboard and many tech savvy enthusiasts even tried to bring it to reality, but without much success. However, thanks to a California…

    The iPhone 6 and the iPhone 6 Plus are already selling like hot cakes despite their ludicrously high price tag; having sold a total of 10 million units in a time span of just one week after they were officially launched. The smaller screen variant seems to be the popular one out of the two devices.

With palms up, I watch with fascination as I slowly wiggle my fingers and form the “OK” sign. I curl my hands into fists as I reach my arms out in front. They look pinker than normal but work as usual. When I look back up at Rosedale, he’s wearing a smile, and his eyebrows rise slightly. “Isn’t it cool?” he says. In…
  • China’s Growing Bets on GMOs

    20 Oct 2014 | 9:10 pm
    New technology and large government research initiatives in ­genetically modified crops are giving China a storehouse for a more populous future.How will China get enough to eat? More than 1.3 billion people live in the world’s most populous nation, and another 100 million will join them by 2030. China is already a net food importer, and people are eating more meat, putting further demands on land used to grow food. Meanwhile, climate change could cut yields of crucial crops—rice, wheat, and corn—by 13 percent over the next 35 years. Mindful of these trends, China’s government spends…

Few make the trek to the city’s east side and its more tranquil China Agricultural Museum, where several formal buildings are set amid sparkling ponds ringed by lotus plants in full pink bloom. The site, which is attached to the Ministry of Agriculture, promises that it will “acquaint…

    The disparity between the rich and everyone else is larger than ever in the United States and increasing in much of Europe. Why?The signs of the gap—really, a chasm—between the poor and the super-rich are hard to miss in Silicon Valley. On a bustling morning in downtown Palo Alto, the center of today’s technology boom, apparently homeless people and their meager belongings occupy almost every available public bench. Twenty minutes away in San Jose, the largest city in the Valley, a camp of homeless people known as the Jungle—reputed to be the largest in the country—has taken root…

    With the ICD-10 compliance date fast approaching, many providers and medical coders continue to be plagued by doubts and ambiguities related to the new coding system. It is important that they obtain a clear view regarding ICD-10 and the features that distinguish it, as well as the government’s stand regarding its implementation.

Is the Chupacabra a new species all together? Is it a cross between two species?Many of the sightings that are hyped in the media are always proven false. That doesn't mean the Chupacabra isn't real. Nature can do weird things, and the idea of strange mutations isn't a crazy one. Until caught, the Chupacabra will remain reclusive, and mythological. The truth is out there.

For those uninitiated to MIT, the Smoot was concocted in October 1958 after a Lambda Chi Alpha headmaster sent seven students to calibrate the Harvard (Mass. Ave.) Bridge using 5’7 freshman Ollie Smoot ’62. The unofficial length: 364.4 Smoots, plus one ear. (A plaque commemorating the prank was added to the bridge in 2009.)

(If you've not seen the movie you really should). Trust me on this after the tenth time it really isn't very funny. The closing scene of the movie is the song " Always look on the bright side of life!"  It's a noble aim and is analogous to the concept of the glass being half full instead of half empty. Always look for the positives…
  • Clothe the needy not the greedy

    9 Oct 2014 | 7:01 am
    Every year I attend more tech events than I care to count and every year at this time (just before my birthday) I go through my closet, collect all the "souvenir" t-shirts and donate them to a local homeless shelter. Official event t-shirts are a pretty cool reminder of the events that you've attended and some of them are even designed well enough that you are happy (and even proud) to wear them again in the future. But what about all those t-shirts given away by event sponsors that are nothing but adverts. Do you really need them? The photo above was posted on twitter by one person of their…
  • For the sins we have committed...

    5 Oct 2014 | 8:50 am
    Yesterday was the Jewish Holy Day of Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement, a day of remembrance, repentance, confession and fasting. It is unique in that it is almost universally observed, even by the most secular of Jews for whom it might be the only day of the year that they attend a service. Central to Yom Kippur is the Al Chet prayer where we are asked to consider the sins we have committed intentionally or unintentionally, what are our sins of commission and our sins of omission and what have we done inadvertently by doing nothing at all. The most important thing is that I am asked to think…
  • Happy 9th Birthday Joomla

    16 Aug 2014 | 10:00 pm
    9 years ago today, on 17th August 2005, I was just one of seventeen brave (or foolhardy) people who announced that they were leaving the very successful Mambo project and starting out on their own. It was a snap decision and truth be told if we had stopped to think about how much work lay ahead of us in the coming months I suspect we might not have been in such a rush. We were greatly helped at the time by Eben Moglen of the Software Freedom Law Centre and I believe we were their first "clients". Just two weeks later, on 1st September, our new baby had a name and the world was introduced…

  • Samsung Galaxy Note 4 Review

    24 Oct 2014 | 3:38 pm
    No stranger to rolling out high-quality consumer electronics products, Samsung’s Note 4 is a really great little hybrid device, of sorts.  Part of the immediate charm of this little marvel is that it stands tall in two worlds – certainly a smartphone in its own right, but also playing out like a tablet as well.  It is this uniqueness and thereby enhanced functionality that make it worthy of an immediate purchase for a certain type of user.  In other words: phone or tablet?  …uhm, both? Let’s explore some features… The display Naturally, it’s the first thing you’re going to…
  • Minecraft player (Duncan Parcells) builds enormously awesome city on Xbox 360

    24 Oct 2014 | 3:26 pm
    You should already know just how amazing Minecraft is by now.  That it has become an institution within the video gaming community at large, spawning an onslaught of interactive entertainment creativity the likes of which the world has never seen before.  It’s also no secret that the game has been ported over to a number of other platforms apart from its original home on the PC.  Well, thanks to that, we get to experience phenomena like artist Duncan Parcells’ enormous “Titan City” creation. According to the creator, it was inspired directly by New York City (not being any type of…

    18 Oct 2014 | 5:54 pm
    There’s something incredibly satisfying about using a tablet computer.  First off, they’re really tactile and visually stimulating.  Secondly, they’re like getting the best of both worlds – more conventional laptop-like size and performance with the usability and feel of a smartphone.  Wondering which of 2014’s tablets are the best and most desirable? No need to fret, we’ve compiled a handy list of the Top 8 for you to review for yourself… iPad Air with Retina Display Just simply saying the phrase “iPad Air with Retina Display” kind of incites a bit of a tingle, doesn’t…

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

  • Thoughts on Splunk .conf 2014

    David Monahan
    24 Oct 2014 | 9:43 am
    This week, Las Vegas hosted some 3500 people at the MGM Grand to mark Splunk .conf14, the annual user gathering for Splunk customers, referred to as “Splunkers”. For those of you not in the tech industry, spelunking, or the act of exploring caves, may come to mind. The theme of the conference was not cave exploration, but data exploration; however, the analogy of cave exploration actually aligns very well. “Splunkers” are diving into their data, delving deep into places that many have never explored before. Each of them finding new and cool ways to use the data that they have been…
  • Network Management: Still a ‘Must-Have’ for Enterprise IT

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

    Jim Frey

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

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

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

  • Moto Racing, a Windows Phone endless runner game on two wheels

    George Ponder
    25 Oct 2014 | 10:19 am
    Moto Racing is an endless runner styled game for your Windows Phone that has you weaving a motorcycle through traffic. You collect coins to buy new and faster motorcycles and ultimately see how far you can go without kissing the pavement. The game's pace does have a little zip to it and a decent selection of bikes. Moto Racing isn't a bad title to have in your Windows Phone gaming library and is a fun way to pass the time. While the game is available for low memory devices, Moto Racing has more of a casual feel than what you would find with a more feature rich that you might invest marathon…

    Microsoft has been trying to get more developers to release their apps for the Windows Phone platform, but there's also a problem with major app creators and publishers that don't bother to update them with new features or improvements for months. In a couple of cases, the apps haven't been updated for nearly a year. Microsoft recently revealed a new Developer's Code of Conduct for Windows 8.1 and Windows Phone apps that stated, among other things, that developers must stay active in the store. That's certainly not the case for these five popular free apps, which have seen numerous feature…

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

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

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

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

    Ipsos
    8 Oct 2014 | 11:16 am
    I recently heard a story on Ted Radio about Alice Stewart . Alice was a physician in England in the 1950’s and the youngest fellow at the time to be elected to the college of physicians. Alice was an epidemiologist specializing in social medicine and the effects of radiation on health. She wanted to solve big problems and the one she choose to try to solve early in her career was the alarming rate of childhood cancers. She liked to study patterns and did research by polling mothers of children who had developed cancer. It was a radical notion at the time to think that mothers would be…
  • On Concept Writing: How Consumers Consume Concepts

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

    24 Sep 2014 | 11:26 am
    You know how it always happens that as soon as you learn a new word, you hear it everywhere? I mean everywhere until the point where you think to yourself, “how have I gone so long without knowing what this meant?” Lately, that’s how I’ve been feeling with a topic instead of a word. That topic is geolocation, and once I started to look into it, I’ve realized it’s EVERYWHERE – and with good reason! Today, most of us carry around personal tracking devices. No, I’m not talking about Minority Report: I’m talking about our smart phones. And while it may be scary to think about,…

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

  • How to change IE Spelling language in Windows 8

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

    Search engine optimization is hard enough when the playing field is level. For most businesses, good SEO means taking smart actions to rank higher on Google: creating great content, building strong backlinks and getting social media buzzing.

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

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

    How does your law firm handle SEO? For many firms, getting ranked on Google has been an uphill battle, one made worse by SEO companies that overpromise and under-deliver.

That’s why EverSpark created My SEO Blueprint – Legal Edition: Top 50 Tips to Rank Your Law Firm on Google. This in-depth guide shows your firm the top 50 steps you can take—with or without an…

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

    Recently KiniBiz did a piece on Malaysian broadband speeds, and once again the hoopla about how Malaysian broadband speeds are slow arose. Kinibiz quoted an article from Asean DNA which stated that the average broadband speed in Malaysia was just 5.5 Mbps, while Thailand, Vietnam and Singapore had speeds that were double that (or more!) The report however was inaccurate, and I think there’s a need to address the hoopla, because this happens often. There was a report couple months back that said Cambodia had faster speeds than Malaysia, and I wrote a post addressing that. This time I…

    Are some laws worth following–in other words, are some Laws so idiotic that they should be ignored completely? That sounds anathema, because we have a romanticized definition of the law, we define the Law as a broad general agreement a society undertakes, and the law keeps society from tearing itself apart. In other words, the law is so sacred because without it–we descend into anarchy, so ignoring the law is akin to promoting anarchy. But I’m not speaking of “The Law”, I’m speaking of “A law”, specifically an Act of Parliament. “The…

This is something that we’ve already pointed it out earlier before noticed it. How well they do it is something remains to be seen.

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

    The Sorcerer
    5 Oct 2014 | 11:47 am
    Thanks to mini-ITX motherboards, AIO coolers and low-profile CPU coolers, modular/semi-modular power supplies and even SSDs, case manufacturers can make significantly smaller-yet-space efficient case designs. CM Elite 130 is a case that meant to be small and compliment the mini/low profile components that it can house within. One has to be honest, case makers tend to keep such cases up for a premium price. Its another story when such premium could be justified. BitFenix made Colossus mATX- a pretty large case, but still something you’ll love to keep on your desk rather than hide it away…

    Advanced analytical technologies are an important part of a social media risk management strategy, an Accenture report says, but the technology must be balanced with training and procedures. Social media training, a social media risk assessment plan, a social governance policy, and a risk-aware culture — is all of this really necessary? Yes. For all the benefits social media have provided to financial service firms from marketing, referrals, and recruitment, the complexities and legal risks are still daunting, not to mention risks to reputation.

Apple still commands 70 percent of the MP3 player market, but it's clear that other mobile devices, namely smartphones and tablets, can do the job of an MP3 player (while performing a myriad of other functions, too).If you look at Apples…

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

    Are you looking for a way to move your email account from Gmail to Outlook or Yahoo to Gmail?

Also, some colleges and universities eventually shutdown student email addresses after a certain time period, so switch before you lose everything.

    A Liberian health worker disinfects a street corner where a suspected Ebola patient was picked up by an ambulance.

The number of reported cases globally is projected to reach 10,000 by the end of October. The actual number of cases may be twice the official figure. So how are such figures estimated – and what can bioinformatics do to help control the disease? The 2014 Ebola outbreak in West Africa appeared suddenly and spread rapidly,…

But are they real? In a radical paper published this week in Physical Review X, we (Dr Michael Hall and I from Griffith University and Dr Dirk-André Deckert from the University of California) propose not only that parallel universes are real, but that they are not quite parallel – they can “collide”. In our theory, the interaction between nearby worlds is the…

  • I need your advice! Should I get basic cable or keep the cord cut?

    Joe Wilcox
    25 Oct 2014 | 12:56 pm
    In July, connected TV service went dark in the Wilcox household, as we pulled the plug on AT&T U-verse and switched to Cox Internet. That reduced our monthly bill from about $130 to $59.99 exactly; there are no taxes or surcharges applied to the Net. Now Cox tempts with a compelling offer: Add local channels and HBO or STARZ, with no-cost HD set-top box for another $9.99 month. Installation is free, and there is no contract. Price is good for 12 months. Should we? Cox promises 44 channels, plus either of the premium channels (I want HBO). But, realistically, that means 10, since we only…

  • Apple's latest iPhone 6 problem -- #dyegate

    Aatif Sulleyman
    24 Oct 2014 | 12:21 pm
    Apple's latest flagship smartphone has caused consumers quite a few headaches (literally, in some cases). The handset, which doesn't come cheap, is prone to bending and tearing out people's hair, leading to the creation of the vastly amusing '#bendgate' and '#hairgate' scandals. Now, however, it's all about '#dyegate'. iPhone 6 owners are complaining that dye from their jeans is being transferred to the rather ugly plastic strips that adorn the back of the device, staining the expensive piece of kit. A review conducted by BGR appears to confirm that this is indeed the case. According to the…

    24 Oct 2014 | 11:06 am
    It seems like everyone has a tablet or phablet nowadays. These devices are wonderful as they let you do many things, like listening to music, surfing the web and reading. Yes, you can read a book on an iPad, Nexus 7 or Galaxy Note, but you shouldn't  -- your eyes do not want you to. You see, it's debatable, but generally accepted, that back-lit LCD displays can strain eyes and lend to eye fatigue. Also, they tend to have poor readability in bright sunlight. Amazon solved these dilemmas in 2007 with the original Kindle -- an e-ink based e-reader, that worked well in sunlight and was easy on…

    I came across this error just the other day. cURL throws the following error when I was trying to connect to an https host: Unknown SSL protocol error in connection to <hostname>:-9846 Connecting to the same host using openssl's s_client, the following error was thrown: error:1408F119:SSL routines:SSL3_GET_RECORD:decryption failed or bad record mac Turns out, the server my client was trying to connect to was so old, it didn't support TLS!

    It's only been a few days since the 0.5 release but I've been busy updating CryptoNark with some bug fixes and also added in support for Windows. One caveat: I've only tested this on WIndows 8.1 under a Strawberry Perl 5.18.2 installation. Please let me know if there are any issues on older/newer versions of Strawberry Perl. One additional item to note in this version. SSLv2 connections to some sites were causing perl to crash when running on Windows. I've modified the subroutine that is making SSLv2 calls to make it more stable but on those sites that it was crashing on, cnark now falsely…

  • How to Setup Advanced Sales Tax

    22 Oct 2014 | 12:44 pm
    Lets face it, no matter how much we would like to see the opposite, taxes just keep getting more complex. Luckily, E-Junkie makes it possible to set up more then just a single sales tax rate. If you are selling in a single state, lets say Arizona (where we are located), you will need to charge sales tax to buyers through out the state.But different cities having their own tax rate (along with the state rate and maybe even a county rate as well), that can create a number of different rates depending on where your buyer is located. In this tutorial, we'll guide you through each step.

The overall earnings were disappointing, with revenues of $20.58B instead of the expected $20.84B, and an operating loss of $544M. But of course I don't really pay much attention to the overall numbers, since Bezos seems to be losing his way to taking over the world (well, the world minus smartphones). My focus of course is on the cloud. The result: $1.340B for the North American Other…

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

  • Until Dawn brings hokey teen horror to the PlayStation 4

    Jacob Siegal
    25 Oct 2014 | 8:45 am
    I only jumped once. Honestly, just once while I played through a demo of Until Dawn, the first major title from developer Supermassive Games. Until Dawn is less psychological thriller and more schlocky horror, but there isn't nearly enough of that on the home consoles.

    There weren't many smartphones in 2014 that received as much attention as the Galaxy Note 4, but a staggered launch by Samsung might have kept the phablet from breaking any sales records. Korea's News 1 reports that after a month on the market, Samsung sold 4.5 million Galaxy Note 4 units, 500,000 less than the Note 3 sold in its first month. Continue reading...
