The three-striped side — is there any thought about using that less? I don’t see runners wearing that in Central Park ever. I don’t think that’s on trend right now. If you look at our football cleats and basketball shoes today, very few have the traditional three stripes as prominent as in the past.

    Among his many achievements, British computer science pioneer Alan Turing created one of the first theoretical models of a general-purpose computer, helped develop the concept of artificial intelligence, and was in charge of breaking the German Enigma cypher during World War II. With the recent release of the film The Imitation Game, he's now becoming known to a whole new generation. It's only fitting, therefore, that a rare collection of his scientific notes is about to head to auction. ..

    With rising energy costs and massive stress on our electrical grids, solar is gaining in popularity. Not everyone realizes you can heat your home without buying big panel systems. Heating Your Home With Solar, But Without Panels – Gain You can use solar energy to heat your home through a concept known as gain.

  • Concentrating Solar Power Systems

    15 Jan 2015 | 8:43 pm
    If you have ever seen a field with several mirrors pointing toward the sun you may be looking at a solar power system. These systems work to concentrate the sunlight to one area and use the heat to heat up the liquid that flows along the pipes. This system is called Parabolic-trough system. This type of system heats oil that is flowing through the pipe. The oil is hot and that is why it is used to boil water to power a steam generator which in turns powers electricity. The reason that this system works so well is because the U-shaped mirrors attracts and collects the suns heat which is then…

    Solar energy for residential houses is nothing new. It has just been relegated to the background in lieu of rising cost of real estate; newer more advanced building materials, design and the limitation of resources. Since man started building homes, sunlight played a major influence in the design. In fact, even in the more advanced urban planning method of the Ancient Chinese and Greeks, the orientation of the buildings is as much as possible directed towards where it could capture the most sunlight. The ancients might not be as intellectually sophisticated then to use catch phrases as…

    4 Jan 2015 | 10:51 am
    The earth receives more than enough energy from the sun in an hour to supply the world’s energy requirement for the whole year. Unfortunately, only a tiny portion of it is harnessed and the world still relies on power plants that burn fossil fuels. The good thing, though, is that there is a constant increase in demand for solar energy; and over the years of continuous development, solar panels are much cheaper today. During peak hours, the maximum power density that the sun can give is about 1kW per square meter. In other words, one square meter of solar panel can produce as much as 100…

Some I follow out of curiosity, some out of courtesy, and others, I have absolutely no idea how, when, or why I started following. Then there is the occasional gem. There are the select few people that totally make my Twitter experience. People like Elon Musk,  Marc Andreessen, some tech journalists, and at the top of the list, alongside these greats, is Hunter Walk. Besides his…
  • An Interview with Saul Singer, Co-Author of the Book ‘Startup Nation’ and One of Israel’s Greatest Thinkers

    25 Dec 2014 | 5:58 am
    Over the years, I have done quite a few killer interviews and I am very proud of the long list. Having said that, the opportunity to have interviewed Saul Singer is definitely at the top of my list. If you are not familiar (how are you not familiar?), Saul wrote the book “Startup Nation” along with his brother in law, Dan Senor. Saul has been a journalist for many years, and has been a thought-leader to the Israeli tech scene through his global tours, speaking engagements, and contributions to leading and influential publications across the web and print. You can and should…
  • An Interview with Tomer Sharon, Senior User Experience Researcher at Google about UX, Mobile, and Life at Google

    4 Dec 2014 | 12:06 am
    A few weeks ago, I was fortunate enough to visit an old friend at Google, NY. Now why is that interesting? Because I call Tomer “An old friend” despite the fact that I had never met him. “Wow, you have a strange definition of friend” is probably what you’re thinking. Could very well be, but if you think about the nature of friendship, you will quickly realize that a friend is someone you learn from, someone you share experiences with, and someone you respect and, well, like. Such is Tomer. I have been following Tomer for years on the social web and consistently…

    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.

    8 Sep 2014 | 12:07 am
    By: Hillel Fuld (@Hilzfuld) Many years ago (ok, not that many but 5 years in virtual land is a lot!), I decided I was going to interview people who inspire me. Since then, I have been doing so as often as I can. Here are all my superstar interviews. When I first decided to try to reach these people, I set my goals quite high and even made myself laugh at the thought of ever accomplishing the goal of meeting and/or interviewing the Woz. Well, it took me all those years but then a few months back, I managed to land my Woz interview. That is old news though, so why am I telling you this? Well,…

    Hannah Horvath is the modern antiheroine. She is selfish, narcissistic and insensitive. She displays self-absorption more often than self-awareness. She is frequently (and often bafflingly) unlikeable. Yet, I found myself rooting for Hannah in episode 3, "Female Author," and relishing her epic takedown of all those sneering Iowa classmates. And what a takedown it is.

  • Funniest/Most Insightful Comments Of The Week At Techdirt

    Leigh Beadon
    25 Jan 2015 | 12:00 pm
    The broadband industry isn't opposed to net neutrality — so long as it gets to write the rules itself. This week, companies spoke up in support of their toothless version of net neutrality, prompting one anonymous commenter to give us our most insightful comment of the week: If you are making the industry you are trying to regulate happy, you are not regulating it properly. To balance that short one, we've got an extra long one in second place.

  • This Week In Techdirt History: January 18th - 24th

    Leigh Beadon
    24 Jan 2015 | 12:00 pm
    Five Years Ago This week in 2010 was the beginning of the NY times paywall, sparking off huge amounts of discussion online. We weren't convinced. Ultimately, the paywall didn't seem to hurt the newspaper, but it didn't seem to bring much benefit either (or at least not enough for many other publications to follow in its footsteps). There was a lot of stuff happening overseas five years ago. The UK was hiding ACTA details from MPs, carving out tiny ISP safe harbors for hate speech and, in a high-profile incident, arresting a man for tweeting a joke about blowing up an airport.

  • Analysis Of Pirated Oscar Movies Shows They're Almost All Available... In HD (And Not From Screeners)

    Mike Masnick
    23 Jan 2015 | 7:39 pm
    As we've mentioned in the past, every year for over a decade, Andy Baio scours the internet to see what Oscar-nominated movies have been put online (the answer is usually almost all of them). He started this back in 2004, when the MPAA laughably claimed that the very first "screener" copy of a nominated movie had been put online. Baio realized that it was hardly the first and there were many more. His latest analysis is up and it shows that, yet again, nearly all nominated movies are available. He's actually kept the details of every year's search in a big Google spreadsheet. There are some…
  • Why We Still Can't Really Put Anything In The Public Domain... And Why That Needs To Change

    Mike Masnick
    23 Jan 2015 | 6:10 pm
    More than five years ago, we wrote about just how difficult it was to actually put something into the public domain legally. For years, we've said that all of our Techdirt posts (where we have the right to do so) are subject to a public domain dedication, but there's nothing specifically in the law that says how or if you can really put something into the public domain. While you can make a public domain dedication or (more recently) use the Creative Commons CC0 tool to do so, there's no clear way within the law to actually declare something in the public domain. Instead, the public domain…

  • Santa To The Sea Half Marathon and 2014 Recap

    3 Jan 2015 | 5:38 pm
    Over the past year I’ve run over 800 miles and raced three half marathons, three challenging trail races over 11 miles long and in several 5ks. I also dedicated a lot of training time to increasing my climbing and logged over 24,000 feet in elevation gain. I trained on several mountain ranges in Southern California and feel like I can knock out a half marathon run at any time, so I did. It’s been a couple of weeks since running the Santa To The Sea Half Marathon in Oxnard on Dec. 18. I was excited to tackle the course and try to set a PR for the half. The flat as a pancake course…

    After tackling the XTERRA Point Mugu 18K Trail Race in October, I decided to do the Santa to the Sea Half Marathon in December next. But that left me with two months without races and I got impatient. I was looking through my timeline on the Strava site when I saw that tri-athlete Anthony Grey was in his last weeks of training for the Surfer’s Point Full Marathon. After that I signed up for the half marathon or the race to be held on Nov. 16, 2014. One of the features of the race is that when you cross the finish line you get a nice beer and some real tacos. Who can say no to tacos?

    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…

For those who are now a little paranoid over the security of Minecraft, you can rest assured because Mojang has come forward to clarify that the incident was not so much a hack, but rather a case of phishing.For those unfamiliar, phishing is when an attacker tries to disguise themselves as a trustworthy entity in order to glean sensitive information off you. For example phishing could come in the form of emails where the sender could pretend to be from your bank and are…
  • Upcoming RM-1072 Could Be A Cheaper Lumia 830 Alternative

    25 Jan 2015 | 5:03 pm
    We have been hearing about a bunch of Lumia devices that could be launched soon. One of the devices we have heard about is the RM-1072 and now thanks to the folks at NPU, potential specs of the upcoming handset have been revealed. According to NPU and based on the specs of the device, it looks like the RM-1072 could end up being a more affordable Lumia 830.For starters the handset is expected to pack a 5-inch 720p HD display. It is also going to be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 quad-core processor (clock speed unknown at this point), and will come with an 8.7MP rear-facing camera, a…

    If you receive a prompt or notice from Adobe asking you to update your Flash player software, you should probably go ahead and do that. Adobe has recently released an updated version of their Flash player software that will patch an undisclosed vulnerability. This vulnerability essentially allows hackers to take control of your PC or Mac computer remotely.What makes this particular update even more urgent than ever is the fact that there have been reported cases of exploits already, meaning that the vulnerability has been discovered by hackers despite it being undisclosed and who are using it…

    Stanley Goodner
    23 Jan 2015 | 12:07 pm
    If you own a Samsung Galaxy Note 4, you (or someone) paid a pretty penny for it. As such, it’s usually a good idea to provide some minimal protection. Gorilla Glass may be seriously hard and tough, but even it has limitations. Therefore, smartphone case. I had experimented with and tested a number of different cases for my old Galaxy Note 2. I found that the extremely protective, multi-piece cases added entirely too much bulk for my liking. These phablets are large enough as is it. And the really thin ones didn’t do much at all. So if you’re looking for that sweet-spot option to protect…

You’d think it’d be time for the waters to calm already, with a little over a month left until MWC, but still, we know nothing for certain. Well, almost nothing.

    Microsoft had a major surprise up its sleeve for those awaiting details about the Windows 10 launch: its holographic headset, HoloLens. Billed as a new way to interact with technology and the world around us at once, it overlays holograms onto what wearers see in front of them. They might, for instance, play a version of Minecraft that's constructed across a kitchen table and chairs, or have a Skype conversation with a screen seemingly hovering in front of them as they stroll across the floor. It is blisteringly impressive.
  • Zenwalk Linux - A Walk on the Quirky Side

    Jack M. Germain
    23 Jan 2015 | 3:51 pm
    The developmental path and sketchy developer website may cast an unfavorable impression about Zenwalk's trustworthiness as a serious computing platform. The ho-hum impression when first running the live edition does little to encourage users to take this Linux OS for a stroll. Zenwalk Linux becomes a bit more impressive once you get beyond the awkward first-time experience, but it comes with a number of problems that might be prohibitive for a new user looking for an all-purpose Linux OS.

    Crash Override made its official debut last week, promising a new way to support people who become the targets of online bullying and harassment. Cofounder Zoe Quinn, a video game developer, is one of the better-known people who have been on the receiving end of such abuse. For her, it started when an ex-boyfriend alleged in a blog post that Quinn had traded sex with a journalist for a video game news site in order to get favorable reviews. Readers piled on, many hurling obscene insults.

    When it comes to patching vulnerabilities, Oracle does nothing small. In its latest quarterly CPU (Critical Patch Update), the database giant hands its customers 169 new security fixes affecting many products. The full patch matrix is here. SiliconANGLE offers a decent analysis of the vulnerabilities and patches. From Maria Deutscher’s report: One flaw that drew an outsized amount of attention is a misconfiguration affecting the enterprise technology stalwart’s popular E-Business Suite, which “gobsmacked” its discoverer, in his own words.

    Last week I wrote about the new anti-hacking laws President Obama plans to float in his State of the Union address and how the proposals are Draconian at best. I noted that it’s in our power to educate the masses and stop this thing before it becomes law. To that end, I have something to share with you. Derek Watson — better known in the security community as Blak Dayz (blakdayz) — posted the following call to action: Hackers. It’s time to UNITE. With these new proposed laws, they are literally coming for our freedom. If you are interested in joining in a fast…

    15 Jan 2015 | 2:19 pm
    There’s much alarm in the security community over new anti-hacking laws President Obama plans to float in his State of the Union address next week. The alarm is justified. What he proposes, as my friend Rob Graham (@ErrataRob) wrote in this important post, “are blunt political solutions which reflect no technical understanding of the problem.” Obama’s proposed anti-hacking laws are designed to arm companies with legal protections for sharing information with each other and the government about hacking threats. The President believes it’s necessary to help prevent…

    Bill Brenner
    9 Jan 2015 | 5:22 am
    For the last few years I’ve been praising Microsoft for taking great strides to improve security. This morning, I’m tempted to take it all back. For the last decade, Microsoft has issued advance notifications the Thursday before each security patch release. It’s been a valuable service, helping IT security practitioners to be better prepared. Yesterday, the software giant announced it was ending the service, claiming that not enough people are using it. It’s a bad move that comes on the heels of other bad moves, which includes slashing a lot of good security talent in…

    Nobody likes travelling, and one of the worst parts about it is sorting out your luggage before you go. The idea of smart luggage has been popping up on crowdfunding sites for some time now, and French luggage company Delsey has got in on that action with its new smart luggage prototype. It’s called Pluggage, and it comes with a bunch of features that could make travelling that much easier. The great thing is that because its still in the prototype stage, Delsey is willing to listen to customers’ ideas on what they want to see included. The current model is a traditional wheeled…

  • Twitter doesn’t want people sharing Instagram photos

    Tom Pritchard
    23 Jan 2015 | 5:51 am
    Twitter and Instagram always seem to be at each other’s throats, and now Twitter is taking things one step further by asking notable tweeters to share pictures directly rather than linking to Instagram. You may remember that back in 2012, Instagram changed how linked images showed up on Twitter. Rather than seeing a preview, users have to click on a link that takes them to the photo on Instagram. That clearly didn’t sit well with Twitter, because not long afterwards it launched photo editing tools, like filters, to try and encourage people to share via Twitter rather than…

Speaking at the Windows 10 launch event on Wednesday, Microsoft confirmed that it has some great hardware lined up and people can expect to see flagship-level Windows Phone devices before the end of the year. Right now it’s unclear what these devices may be, and who will make them. It’s…

    Ever wanted to watch the action from the point of view of the players? GoPro has today announced a partnership with the National Hockey League which will see players wearing a miniature camera – with the action broadcast live on TV. GoPro’s latest Hero4 cameras are capable of broadcasting over wifi – and it is presumably this technology that the company’s professional broadcast division will be exploiting. The reason hockey is the first sport to get this treatment is perhaps because each period is only 20 minutes long – meaning that the batteries won’t run…

In fact, some would say it might look eerily similar to Apple’s own iMessage app for MacOS: The unified messaging service, which will also support other messengers and sync over OneDrive (for example, WhatsApp could support if it that is what its owners wanted to do), will also work with your unified address book, meaning you can Skype someone even if all you know…

Heck, you can even see a rap career blooming as Jillian York and Jacob Appelbaum suggest that it's time that we "talk about P-G-P" at re:publica.

Second, I am unabashedly pro-Tor, a user of the tor network, and…

    19 Sep 2014 | 7:05 am
    There's a budding conversation on "trust" over in the twitterverse. I began a draft post a while back that compared Tor (the amazing privacy and anti-censorship network and all privacy-protecting software to condoms. More on that soon, but let's actually talk about how you might have trust in a software project, using Tor as an example. Tor has been in the news recently, and I've had a ton of people ask me about how safe it is to use, so I figured one click-bait headline is as good as another in having an open and honest discussion about Tor. First, let's be transparent. Tor - not unlike the…

    There's a point here about heartbleed and security — I promise. Keep with me. As I am wont to once the weather finally begins to coöperate, I've been trying a few new things out on the grill. When I'm in this exploratory phase, I love digging through the infinitely interesting BBQ blogs of the Internet - they're full of hard-won knowledge about fire and smoke, but often lack a certain level of technical polish.

    24 Feb 2014 | 6:56 am
    Senator Cruz's office's response to my personal note about surveillance I sent as part of TheDayWeFightBack: Thank you for sharing your thoughts regarding the National Security Agency's surveillance program. Input from fellow Texans significantly informs my decision-making and empowers me to better represent the state. During my time in the Senate, I have consistently reiterated my support of programs that can detect impending threats to our homeland or diplomatic and military facilities abroad. It is imperative, however, that we strike an appropriate balance between remaining vigilant…

  • Elon Musk May Unveil Mars Colony Plans This Year

    7 Jan 2015 | 7:34 pm
    During a Reddit AMA earlier this week, Elon Musk said he hopes to announce his Mars transport system plans. As you’d expect, I’m incredibly excited about this. We are still obviously a long ways away from the first manned mission to Mars, but there is finally substantive work being done to get us there. Of course, NASA announced late last year that the Orion space capsule is a part of their plan toward a manned mission to Mars, which is terribly exciting. Humans conducting experiments on Mars and exploring the planet is something I hope to see before I die. But Musk and SpaceX, I…

  • 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…

    Bing Pulse, the real-time viewer polling and feedback tool from Bing, is going to be part of CNN and MSNBC’s coverage of the upcoming State of the Union address by United States President Mr Barack Obama. The way it worked in the past is analysts and pundits across networks and publications would try to make sense of the variety of feedback channels they get their data from, and then try to provide the updates to the viewers. Naturally that took some time and the final analyses would take hours and days, if not weeks. Instead, Bing Pulse will enable MSNBC and CNN to provide real-time…

    Facebook has come a long way since its humble beginnings almost eleven years ago. From being just a wall of posts, it has morphed into a powerful aggregator with a wide variety of content. The trouble is that somewhere beneath all the content that you’ve created over the years, there are all your past indiscretions waiting to be discovered. Did you go on a liking spree when Pages were introduced and Facebook invited you to become a fan of your favourite personalities and brands?

    Towards the end of 2014, it was reported that Samsung Display aims to lower the cost of their OLED displays, to be more competitive with LCDs (some suggested that Samsung aims to bring small-sized OLED cost below that of competing LCDs).Now Digitimes reports that according to its sources Samsung indeed aims to close the gap between OLED and LCD pricing during 2015. In 2013 an AMOLED panel used to cost about $10-15 more than a competing LCD (they probably mean a 4" - 5" panel). In 2014 this shrunk to only $5.Read more about Samsung Display aims to reach OLED-LCD cost parity in 2015

Social media falls into the latter category, and is continuing to grow and react to changing environments. To be perfectly honest, most social media predictions don’t require a crystal ball and tarot cards. 2014 already gave us some pretty strong indications of where things are heading in 2015…and beyond.

  • Bootstrap 3 quick fix for older Firefox versions

    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.

While one or two boards with 1,127 MHz and 1,178 MHz clocks showed up, sure enough, most OEMs didn't bother and made all their cards run faster.

    The Decemberists recently had to deal with some decidedly less-than-artistic lyrics. The indie folk rock band who just released their seventh album on January 20, 2015 appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live and sung some rather ridiculous YouTube comments. Kimmel starts the segment by explaining how The Decemberists write “interesting, very intelligent songs about uncommon subjects,” and then jokes they’re working on an album centered around YouTube. The band proceeds to play selections from this fake project, covering every kind of comment you expect to see on Google’s online video site,…

  • New technique helps probe performance of organic solar cell materials

    22 Jan 2015 | 9:00 pm
    (North Carolina State University) Researchers have developed a technique for determining the role that a material's structure has on the efficiency of organic solar cells, which are candidates for low-cost, next generation solar power. The researchers used the technique to determine that materials with a highly organized structure at the nanoscale are not more efficient at creating free electrons than poorly organized structures -- a finding which will guide future research and development efforts.

So if you’re watching movies or animation and moving elements between monitors, you’ll not notice lag. Duet’s unique feature that allows this is that Duet connects to your Mac using the USB port and either 30 pin connector or Lightning connector. I’ve…

The plan is available online so that others can put together the printer, too! The concept was so good that Intel even decided to fund the project and turn it into a start-up. The prototype used…

  • Mind-Blowing Video Shows Why You Love the Smell After the Rain

    25 Jan 2015 | 12:41 pm
    You're not crazy: the smell after the rain is pretty darn good. A new video from MIT shows why exactly. Using high-speed cameras, researchers put together a slow-motion visual that explains that when a raindrop makes contact with a porous surface, it traps tiny air bubbles. Those bubbles then shoot upward like fizz, burst into the air, and are carried by the wind. It's the main reason for that nostalgic smell (called petrichor), but it's also how bacteria and viruses spread from the ground. Mind = blown.

    My 5 predictions for the tech world in 2015 and the next 5 years; Sensors, Indoor Location, Alternative networks, Wearable computers, the demise of cable TV. Billions of sensors will monitor everything, and become the next platform shift in computing. Your home, car, office, and even people will have special sensors that help us manage the complexities of life. Indoor Location and Positioning, enabled by Smartphones, will become a part of many existing apps, and enable new services.

    Indoor Location and Positioning technology is the Next Big Thing. It is bringing the power of GPS and Maps indoors. We spend most of our time indoors, working, shopping, eating, at the mall, at the office, on campus, etc. Apple and Google are competing on street maps, but are also working on Indoor Location. Lots of startups are going after this market too. In this post I will mention all that I am aware of.

    Indoor Location and Positioning will be huge! Apple recently acquired WifiSlam for its indoor mapping and positioning technology. Why? Because we spend most of our time indoors, working, shopping, eating, at the mall, at the office, on campus, etc.  Google already has Indoor Maps for many airports and shopping malls. The race is on. The explosion of Smartphones with built in sensors, accelerometer, gyro, wifi radios, and camera make indoor positioning possible.  GPS and Maps are great, but they only work outdoors and with clear line of sight to the sky. GPS was developed by the US…
  • How Facebook maximized the IPO proceeds, but botched the process

They price at $12 to $15 per share at the IPO and trade up to $20 - $25 on the first day, and up to $30 to $40 over the next few months. Investors are happy. The press is writing positive stories. Everyone is happy. But, the company left all that money on the table, the difference between the $12 IPO price and the $25 first day close. This can mean hundreds of millions of dollars for the company. Facebook optimized the value of the IPO to the company by pricing high, and brought in billions of dollars in cash. Facebook stock…

(The money will be going to support the families of those killed, though there is a bit of a sour note starting with people trying to sell copies on eBay) If the aim of the shootings was to cow Hebdo and its satire it has been a complete failure so far, and also far any attempt to further inflame France (if anything the UK media seems more cowed than the French).

Ultimately, the paywall didn't seem to hurt the newspaper, but it didn't seem to bring much benefit either (or at least not enough for many other publications to follow in its footsteps). There was a lot of stuff happening overseas five years ago. The UK was hiding ACTA details from MPs, carving out tiny ISP safe harbors for hate speech and, in a high-profile incident, arresting a man for tweeting a joke about blowing up an airport.

He started this back in 2004, when the MPAA laughably claimed that the very first "screener" copy of a nominated movie had been put online. Baio realized that it was hardly the first and there were many more. His latest analysis is up and it shows that, yet again, nearly all nominated movies are available. He's actually kept the details of every year's search in a big Google spreadsheet. There are some…

For years, we've said that all of our Techdirt posts (where we have the right to do so) are subject to a public domain dedication, but there's nothing specifically in the law that says how or if you can really put something into the public domain. While you can make a public domain dedication or (more recently) use the Creative Commons CC0 tool to do so, there's no clear way within the law to actually declare something in the public domain.

Although, I must say, although I like the idea behind Patreon, I don’t like the execution much. It’s very inflexible. Why can’t I set up different types of patronage for different endeavors at different price points? Why is everything either recurring by month or recurring by thing created?

    You’ve surely heard of the Raspberry Pi: the palm-sized computer with enough power to run servers or media centres complete with retro gaming.  Rasberry Pi has the connectivity to control security systems and enthusiast projects; and with the software tools to encourage the teaching and understanding of programming. Since its launch in 2012 the Raspberry Pi has exceeded expectations, becoming a must-have piece of computer hardware for enthusiasts and tech-heads. For a small project developed to be sold to schools and colleges to teach programming principles, that’s not bad.

Yep, later this year, you can buy yourself LEGO sets featuring the Mystery Machine and its team of ghost-debunking, road-tripping, meddling kids (and their dog).

    The world has enough weather apps. What it doesn’t have enough of is weather apps that make lame weather jokes. Fortunately, Funny or Die is here to disrupt the weather space with Funny or Die Weather, an app to fill that comedy niche that so needed filling. Maybe the funniest part of Funny or Die Weather is how surprisingly straight it plays things. The weather information is sourced from Weather Underground, which is as reliable a source of weather as a weather reporting service can be. Funny or Die faithfully relays that weather information to you, proving that the weather…

    22 Jan 2015 | 2:32 pm
    A little over a year ago, we saw the standing desk get smart with Stir’s Kinetic Desk. The Wi-Fi and Bluetooth-enabled desk could change from sit mode to stand mode and keep track of how long you sit and stand at work, data that was later pulled into Fitbit’s fitness tracking app. Today, we’re seeing the next generation of Stir’s Kinetic Desk—it’s called the M1, and it’s better, cheaper, and leaner than its predecessor. The M1 is a little smaller than the previous Kinetic Desk and has sloping edges, so it’ll be more comfortable to rest your arms on…

    25 Jan 2015 | 12:44 pm
    Consider the humble video game cartridge. It's a small, durable plastic box that imparts the most immediate, user-friendly software experience ever created. Just plug it in, and you're playing a game in seconds. If you’ve ever used one, you have two men to thank: Wallace Kirschner and Lawrence Haskel, who invented the game cartridge 40 years ago while working at an obscure company and rebounding from a business failure. Once the pair's programmable system had been streamlined and turned into a commercial product - the Channel F console - by a team at pioneering electronics company…

  • Microsoft is ready to be loved again

    23 Jan 2015 | 3:06 pm
    "We have bigger hopes, higher aspirations for Windows," Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella said on Wednesday, standing on a stage above a secret room filled with crazy holographic technology. "We want to move from people needing Windows to choosing Windows, to loving Windows. That is our bold goal." He's right: love is a problem that Microsoft needs to solve. I use Windows because out of the options, it's the one that bugs me the least. Now, I have a tendency to dislike all software - it's crazy how many faults and problems we accept in software - so it's unlikely they'll ever get me to 'love'…
  • Google publishes three 90-day OS X vulnerabilities

    23 Jan 2015 | 3:00 pm
    Don't look now, but Google's Project Zero vulnerability research program may have dropped more zero-day vulnerabilities - this time on Apple's OS X platform. In the past two days, Project Zero has disclosed OS X vulnerabilities here, here, and here. At first glance, none of them appear to be highly critical, since all three appear to require the attacker to already have some access to a targeted machine. What's more, the first vulnerability, the one involving the "networkd 'effective_audit_token' XPC," may already have been mitigated in OS X Yosemite, but if so the Google advisory doesn't…

Cluetrain began as a list of 95 theses posted on the website that captured the sentiments of Searls and three other tech-industry marketing veterans. The Cluetrain Manifesto quickly evolved into a best-selling book that provided many early online marketers with a foundation for understanding and predicting how buying and selling would change when buyers have…

The truth is, you could pick out any year and read just as many articles about people who are going to start having a commercial version of a flying car next July. For some reason, next July is always far enough in the future so reporters will forget to check back in. Anyway, I just saw this and thought it was too 2006 to pass up.

    2 Jul 2014 | 10:00 am
    Last week I attended Google I/O for the first time and participated on a small panel about cross-platform design challenges. There was so much going on that it was a bit of sensory overload, much like walking down the Las Vegas strip for the first time. Google announced many welcomed Android improvements such as a battery saver mode and lock-screen notifications; something you'd previously need to use add-ons for as mentioned in Android is better. More uses of the Android operating system emerged: Android Wear, Android Auto and Android TV. A smartphone won't be the only thing that comes to…

    14 Apr 2014 | 8:00 am
    Last week Dropbox launched a new gallery app called Carousel. It's a focused app, only letting people view their photos stored on Dropbox1 and conveniently share them. There are a few interesting parts in the app but there is one piece I’d like to highlight: Swipe down to hide. This gesture doesn't delete your photo, it simply removes it from the gallery view. It's not a heavy action. There's no cognitive overhead, no thinking "wait, do I want this shot?" as there generally is when deleting items.

    13 Jan 2014 | 1:45 am
    A few weeks ago my DNS provider Zerigo sent an email stating that due to recent infrastructure upgrades they would need to raise their prices. For my meager DNS needs that ended up being a huge price hike: from $39 per year to $25 per month1. Prices were set to take effect a month later. I decided to put my current dev work — designing and building new photoblog functionality to showcase my Japan trip photos — on hold to move away from Zerigo. I chose to switch to AWS Route 53. I was able to successfully get my DNS running on Route 53 and pointing to my Heroku setup rather…

    When you join Twitter, it sets your profile picture as a colored egg but for people to take you seriously, you replace that egg with your face. This is the first rule of the Twitter book but some users aren’t paying attention. Maybe they are too lazy to change the avatar, maybe they want to stay anonymous or maybe they are bots and fake users created by spammers who “sell” Twitter followers. This week, I set out to count the number of eggs that follow me on Twitter and results were surprising. It turned that out of the 53k users who follow me, around 15% of the followers…

  • Lost your Phone? You Can Still Retrieve its IMEI Number

    Amit Agarwal
    19 Jan 2015 | 4:13 am
    Your mobile phone has a globally unique number associated with it, called the IMEI number, that uniquely identifies your device within the mobile network. If your phone gets lost or is stolen, you would need to provide this IMEI number to the law enforcement agencies and the telecom operator for them to blacklist your device and prevent anyone else from using your phone on their wireless network. As you probably know, it is relatively easy to find the IMEI number of your mobile phone. While there are apps that will help you retrieve this number with a tap, you don’t really need one.

    Derek Strickland
    23 Jan 2015 | 6:00 am
    UPDATE: One Reddit user affirms that the Slim PS4 leak was indeed a fake, citing that the smaller model isn’t big enough to play standard Blu-ray game discs. Using the picture that compares the standard and slim PS4’s as a template, the user approximated that the Slim PS4’s width measures about 166mm (as compared to the 275mm width of the current PS4 model), with an ~88mm disc drive. Considering all PS4 game Blu-ray discs measure 120mm, there appears to be an obvious disproportion between the Slim PS4’s disc drive and the game discs themselves. Original story as…

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

  • Market Especially to Existing Customers

    Alex Goldfayn
    19 Jan 2015 | 4:31 pm
    We must market to existing customers as much as we market to prospects.There are two big reasons for this: 1. The competition is calling on them aggressively. Every time they say “no” to them, they make a conscious decision to say with you. We must help them make this decision, again and again, by clearly explaining all of the wonderful things we do for them. Right now, they probably don’t know about everything you do so well for them. 2. Your customers do not know about all of the products and services they can buy from you. When you do not market to your existing…
  • Ready? FIRE! Aim…

    Alex Goldfayn
    12 Jan 2015 | 2:48 pm
    Unlike your products and services, which need to be precise and exact, your marketing needs only to be helpful. I heard Alan Weiss say this once, and it has stuck with me ever since: In marketing, quantity trumps quality. The more that people hear from us, the more they will buy from us. So stop trying to make it perfect. Stop putting it off. Write or record something helpful to your customers and prospects, and send it to them. Then do it again. And again. Ready? FIRE! Then aim, assess and adjust. If it’s working, double down on it. If it’s not working, or you don’t like…

    Happy New Year! What significant activity or effort did you put off last year? Which revenue-impacting project or action did you think about a lot, but did not execute? This is something that you think would be really smart to do, something that took up a lot of your psychic energy, but something you did execute. Got it? Write down at your desk. Now, write down the first three action required to put it into motion. I want three activities that take 15 minutes or less. Do one today, one tomorrow, and one Wednesday. Then write down the next three actions. Right now, physics are working against…
  • Revenue Resolutions

    Alex Goldfayn
    29 Dec 2014 | 1:50 pm
    Resolutions for dramatic revenue growth in 2015 — for you, your colleagues and your staff: 1. Each day I will communicate my value to at least one customer or prospect who can buy from me — in person, on the phone, or least preferably, via a personal email. 2. I will grow my company’s list of customers and prospects, because if my list isn’t growing, my revenue likely isn’t either. 3. I resolve to regularly mail or e-mail value to my growing list. My communications will focus on improving the lives and companies of my readers, not selling, pitching or promoting.
  • The Holiday Review

    Alex Goldfayn
    22 Dec 2014 | 4:28 pm
    This is a great time to take stock of your business and your work: What marketing activity worked particularly well for you this year? (Double down on it next year.) Which business-development activity didn’t produce the results you wanted? (Change it. Or kill it. Move on.) What revenue growth activities do you particularly enjoy? Writing? Speaking? Events? Webinars? If they generate results, do more of those. The key to growing business is to do things we LIKE to do, which happen to be effective. Who are your best customers? Have you identified them? What will you do (differently) to…

    Lupita Nyong’o shined in the red carpet as well as onstage during the 2015 Screen Actors Guild Awards. She joined Jared Leto as they took to the stage to present the award for Outstanding Male Actor in a TV Movie or Miniseries. However, their seemingly flirtatious nature is what’s been making headlines right now. Leto was seen staring intently at the Yale-educated actress as she read the nominees, only looking away to read his part from the teleprompter. The rumored couple announced the winner, Mark Ruffalo, who couldn’t be there during the ceremony. After delivering the spiel about…

This is a major honor for Reynolds, who has several nominations under her belt including a couple of Golden Globe nominations, as well as Tony and Oscar nominations.

The cast was celebrating the birthday of Full House creator Jeff Franklin at a fun-filled bash. Noticeably absent from the festivities were the Olsen twins.

    Kris Jenner channeled her inner John Travolta at the British National Television Awards in London this past week. In addition to mispronouncing one of the nominee’s names, a la Travolta at last year’s Academy Awards (when he introduced Frozen star Idina Menzel as Adele Dazeem), she completely missed her cue when preparing to present the multichannel award. The show, held at London’s O2 Arena, featured the UK’s television greats–much like the Emmy Awards in the U.S. The Keeping Up With the Kardashians star sort of looked like the proverbial deer in the headlights…

Longoria visited the slums of Cartagena, Colombia on one of her stops in the creation of an upcoming PBS documentary called A Path Appears. “Being in the slums and walking from barrio to barrio, you can’t walk two steps without seeing a pregnant teen,” Longoria said during an interview with The Hollywood Reporter. The documentary follows Eva Longoria along with Pulitzer Prize winners Nicholas Kristof and Sheryl WuDunn–as well as fellow actors Malin…

    HTC One M9 is expected to be rolled out at Mobile World Congress on 1st of March. Given that it is clear that HTC wants to keep the time between the announcement of the device and the time when it goes on sale relatively minimal, it is expected that from now to the launch of the device plenty of images will surface of the phone that is one of the most eagerly anticipated devices of the year 2015. After the success of the HTC M7 and M8, the M9 is the device that HTC would be expecting to lift them into green from the red that has hurt them in the years gone by. It looks like from the outside…

    Whatsapp has become the standard communication platform today among just about everybody. With the growing penetration of smartphones, it is little surprise that just about everyone is on Whatsapp and the number of text messages being sent have declined rapidly. In fact, other than brief client interactions, I barely remember when was the last time I sent a text message to anybody to have a conversation. No wonder, when we go out or visit a station beyond our home, the only connectivity we long for is our Whatsapp account. It is fine if Twitter fails for a while and things are at a…

    Microsoft has announced the Windows 10 and as expected there is no Windows 9 for us to talk about. Windows 10 brings the Windows experience that we have grown accustomed to in the long years gone by back as all the metro stuff can now be totally put to one side. Another impressive feature of Windows 10 is app compatibility as from now on, the developers will only have to develop an application for either the desktop, tablet or phone and it will be cross compatible. As a result we are moving towards a unified App store too. made sure to let everyone know that it is selling Windows as a…
  • Whatsapp Finally Comes to Google Chrome in a much awaited Web Version

    You must have used emulators and virtually every other trick in the book to run Whatsapp on your computer. It is just so much easier typing out messages from a full-length keyboard and screen when you are stationed at one place, for example at your work desk. This is exactly why a Web version of Whatsapp has been one of the most keenly anticipated applications for a while now. Finally, Whatsapp has decided to give in and has brought a web version of the application, at least sort of. The major limitation of the setup is that it is only made for Google Chrome users and requires you to have…

Whether or not such a delivery service pans out is less important than the buzz (no pun intended) it created – as a kickstart for the drone industry.

    It was rumored during the production of Qualcomm’s flagship chips that there was a possibility that the company would be delaying the supply of its Snapdragon 810 chipset due to overheating and GPU driver issues. While several OEMs (original equipment manufacturers) have not prevented themselves from assimilating Qualcomm’s latest offering to their devices, such as LG’s G Flex 2 and Xiaomi’s recently announced flagship phone, the Mi Note Pro, Samsung seems to be having a hard time being convinced regarding the reliability of the company’s chip.

    Both the GTX 980 and GTX 970 are graphical powerhouses when it comes to gaming performance. However, since the GTX 980 is priced at $200 more than its lower performing brother, it is no question that gamers will purchase the GTX 970 in order to a sacrifice a fraction of the performance but save tons of money in the process. However, right now, it looks like saving the $200 and purchasing the GTX 970 would have cost gamers a lot more, thanks to a new memory bug that has been plaguing the GTX 970. Extremetech was kind enough to explain what kind of problems GTX 970 owners would be suffering…

      by Frédéric Filloux Digital media are stuck with bad economics resulting in relentless deflation. It’s time to wake-up and make 2015 the year of radical — and concerted — solutions. Trends in digital advertising feel like an endless agony to me. To sum up: there is no sign of improvement on the performance side; a growing percentage of ads are sold in bulk; click-fraud and user rejection are on the rise, all resulting in ceaseless deflation. Call it the J-Curve of digital advertising, as it will get worse before it gets better (it must – and it will). Here is…
  • Apple Software Quality Questions

    Jean-Louis Gassée
    18 Jan 2015 | 12:15 pm
      by Jean-Louis Gassée A flurry of recent software accidents in iOS and OS X raises questions about Apple’s management of its relentless increase in R&D spending. For the past six months or so, I’ve become increasingly concerned about the quality of Apple software. From the painful gestation of OS X 10.10 (Yosemite) with its damaged iWork apps, to the chaotic iOS 8 launch, iCloud glitches, and the trouble with Continuity, I’ve gotten a bad feeling about Apple’s software quality management. “It Just Works”, the company’s pleasant-sounding motto, became an easy target,…

      by Frédéric Filloux Anglo-saxon media that refused to publish religious caricatures should revise their position. This is the worst time to surrender to self-censorship and politically correctness. There is a too much at stake, here.  As I’m writing this column, sharpshooters are positioned on the roofs of my neighborhood, a hundred yards away from Place de la Nation where hundreds of thousands of people will gather in the memory of the 17 people killed in last week terror attacks.

      by Jean-Louis Gassée Smartphones existed before Steve Jobs introduced the iPhone on January 9th, 2007. But by upending existing technology platforms, application distribution, and carrier business models, he kickstarted a new era of computing whose impact is yet to be fully understood. I knew one of the victims of the Charlie Hebdo massacre: Bernard Maris. We weren’t friends, just pleasantly casual acquaintances through the in-law side of my family. Typical Parisian dinner conversations “rearranging the world” led to a Palo Alto visit and an interview for a small Charlie Hebdo…

    It has been said that people who go to the office every day spend far more time with their colleagues than with their families. If this is true, then conflict is bound to happen. Families don’t get along at all times, and neither do co-workers. But while slamming the door or doing the silent treatment works at home, these tactics are unprofessional and obnoxious, even if you’re dealing with a co-worker whose attitude leaves a lot to be desired. One prevalent office problem is dealing with haters or trolls. These are people that no matter what you do or how well you do your work, they can…

    19 Jan 2015 | 7:44 am
    Sales and marketing is all about touchpoints – getting in front of, and staying in front of your target audience and ideal buyer. As sales-driven marketers, we know that B2B sales aren’t (usually) made on the first call, and that the relationship shouldn’t be one-and-done. It’s about leveraging the relationship, building a deeper connection with your customer, and growing accounts.

  • Not all code is created equal

    16 Jan 2015 | 12:57 pm
    It should be no surprise that I am a supporter of the GPL licence for software. Today I would like to apologise to developers of javascript and icon libraries that I have unknowingly ripped off and defrauded. When I download an extension licensed as GPL I know that I am allowed to use that software how and where I want. However many extensions use libraries written by others and not all libraries are created equally. Unless I look at the raw files outside of Joomla it is often impossible for me to know what libraries are being used. Do you ever look? You should! I am not talking about "is it…
  • Length Matters

    13 Jan 2015 | 11:26 am
    We all know that size really does matter no matter what some nice people might tell you but does length matter as well? There is no point in writing great content if nobody will read it so length does matter - line length that is - what else did you think I was talking about. Too short If the length of the line too short then as a reader your eyes will be travelling left and right so often that it breaks the reading flow. Speed readers and content scanners also find that they are starting the next line before finishing the first and as a result may miss important content or misunderstand the…
  • Programming Joomla Plugins - I am not a developer

    16 Dec 2014 | 12:58 pm
    Earlier this year Jisse asked if I was prepared to review the book he was writing on Joomla plugins. Proof reading is something that strangely I enjoy doing even if it is quite a slow and tedious task. However I did warn Jisse that I wouldn't be able to review anything other than the language as "I am not a developer". I have always known that plugins are one of the most powerful features of Joomla but as "I am not a developer" I have always had to rely on plugins published on the JED or pay someone to develop them for me. After reading the book I have surprised myself by being able to…
  • Creating a great slide deck

    9 Dec 2014 | 1:05 pm
    Every conference I attend I am amazed at how bad many of the slide decks are. It's not as if people are rushing them or creating them at the last minute. They have been created with a lot of time and care they just suck. I have a few rules when I create a slide deck. If you follow them then you won't upset me, you will ensure your audience remembers the key points and you will save yourself time.

  • Spock Logic The Needs of the Many

    30 Nov 2014 | 9:15 pm
    This is another post (and my first) to directly look at the proposal by the Structure Working group for Joomla. They have proposed an almost completely flat structure and you can read more about it elsewhere. A flat structure can sound great and incredibly democratic but it is a fine line between democracy and anarchy. So I have a question, well actually I have two questions about the proposals made for a completely flat structure for Joomla as made by the Structure Working Group. After studying the documents and blog posts produced by the WG, following as many forum and blog comments as I…

    22 Jan 2015 | 12:28 pm
    Software Defined Networking and Network Function Virtualization (NVF) themes dominated workshops and side conversations throughout the PTC 2015 venue in Honolulu, Hawai’i this week. SDNs, or more specifically provisioning automation platforms service provider interconnections, and have crept into nearly all marketing materials and elevator pitches in discussions with submarine cable operators, networks, Internet Exchange Points, and carrier hotels.

  • PTC 2015 Focuses on Submarine Cables and SDNs

    20 Jan 2015 | 12:39 am
    In an informal survey of words used during seminars and discussions, two main themes are emerging at the Pacific Telecommunications Council’s 2015 annual conference.  The first, as expected, is development of more submarine cable capacity both within the Pacific, as well as to end points in ANZ, Asia, and North America.  The second, software defined networking (SDN), as envisioned could quickly begin to re-engineer the gateway and carrier hotel interconnection business. New cable development, including Arctic Fiber, Trident, SEA-US, and APX-E have sparked a lot of interest.  One…

  • You Want Money for a Data Center Buildout?

    12 Jan 2015 | 12:59 pm
    A couple years ago I attended several “fast pitch” competitions and events for entrepreneurs in Southern California, all designed to give startups a chance to “pitch” their ideas in about 60 seconds to a panel of representatives from the local investment community.  Similar to television’s “Shark Tank,” most of the ideas pitches were harshly critiqued, with the real intent of assisting participating entrepreneurs in developing a better story for approaching investors and markets. While very few of the pitches received a strong, positive response, I recall one young guy who…

    9 Jan 2015 | 11:42 am
    This week brought another great consulting gig, working with old friends and respected colleagues.  The challenge driving the consultation was brainstorming a new service for their company, and how best to get it into operation. The new service vision was pretty good.  The service would fill a hole, or shortfall in the industry which would better enable their customers to compete in markets both in the US and abroad.  However the process of planning and delivering this service, well, simply did not exist. The team’s sense of urgency to deliver the service was high, based on a perception…

    By: Mary Ludloff and Terence Craig We’ve been promising an update to our book, Privacy and Big Data, since the just pre- and mostly post-Snowden era. When we proposed and wrote the book it was to fill a void. At the time, there was a lack of mainstream attention to the issues of privacy by the media and a lack of understanding of the issues and implications we all face in the digital world. As tech veterans of long standing, we have seen our world transformed for better and for worse by our industry. Much of the “worst” we chronicled in our book and at the time its release, many…

    By Mary Ludloff and Marilyn Craig Welcome back to the second post in our series on how to get value from your data. As we stated in a previous post: “Data, without the proper use of analytics, is meaningless. If data is the new oil, think of analytics as the oil drills—you need both to be successful.” Of course, getting to “success” is not easy as anyone involved in an analytics project will tell you. This series walks you through our methodology on what it takes—from inception to proof of concept to implementation and deployment—to navigate project pitfalls.

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

  • Flash or HDD for the Best Price/Performance?

    9 Jan 2015 | 3:21 pm
    Flash technology has proven to be a disruptive force in the storage marketplace. Server and network performance gains over the last decade have been substantial, but the hard drive performance needle has hardly moved. This situation has resulted in server utilization being reduced while waiting on storage input output (I/O) operations to be completed. Server virtualization has further contributed to this situation. Server virtualization has been deployed in most enterprises and has delivered great benefits, including environmental and footprint savings, more efficient server utilization, and…

  • Automating Change: The Key to Proactive IT Management

    Steve Brasen
    30 Dec 2014 | 1:03 pm
    Reflecting on my earlier career in IT management, I have to confess to a level of astonishment at how naïve IT administrative practices were just a decade or two ago. Failure events were common, and most organizations just accepted as immutable fact the reality of systemic firefighting. IT services critical to business operations were all too often held together with little more than a hope and a prayer. Sure, my colleagues and I were acutely aware of the importance of performing “root cause analysis” and implementing proactive management practices, but who had the time for that? The…

Though there have been many multi-million dollar impact breaches, the recent Sony Pictures hack and subsequent data exposure and extortion is probably the most impactful to a company out of the previous breaches this year. Recent articles revealed that some employees thought that the hack was, “a long time coming,”[1] and stolen information that was released indicated “passwords were easy to find.”[2] There are other articles disclosing various technology issues and outages shortly before the information was…
  • Allgress Insight Risk Management Suite Brings Flexibility and Functionality to IT-GRC

    When I started out in security, only very large organizations with a mature set of business processes dared to talk about implementing some form of governance, risk, and compliance (GRC) or enterprise program (e-GRC). They generally did it in an attempt to get ISO or similar certification, or to “move their programs to the next level,” and some, I think, attempted it just to prove they did it. Many of those efforts were monumental, costing millions of dollars and taking years to complete. However, a significant number seemed to end in compromise, yielding a smaller end result or totally…

  • Internet Explorer Edge? Possible names for Spartan browser reportedly being considered

    Daniel Rubino
    25 Jan 2015 | 2:12 pm
    The Spartan browser, or more accurately understood as 'Project Spartan' is a next-generation web browser for Windows 10. Its main features include being a Store app for dynamic updates, using the older IE11 rendering engine for legacy websites, Cortana integration, and the ability to annotate right on the web page for document sharing. However, Spartan is not the final name, just the internal codename that Microsoft is currently using for the project. The question is, what will Microsoft call the browser upon its final release? A new report suggests a few names are being kicked around and we…
  • Spartan browser looks to crush old Internet Explorer 11 in benchmarks

    Daniel Rubino
    25 Jan 2015 | 1:31 pm
    Windows 10 is shaping up to be a big OS shift for many reasons, including the addition of a new web browser codenamed Spartan. Spartan is still very experimental and as such, it is not included in the current Preview for Windows 10. However, bits of the rendering engine can be engaged in the older Internet Explorer 11. AnandTech forced the new Edge document mode in IE11 through a simple trick using about:flags. They then compared the new rendering engine to legacy IE11, Chrome 40, and Firefox 35. The results are very impressive so far, demonstrating that even in these early stages, what…
  • Here's how to enable the Spartan Edge rendering engine for IE11 in Windows 10

    Daniel Rubino
    25 Jan 2015 | 1:31 pm
    When it comes to web browsers, Windows 10 gets a little complicated. Internet Explorer 11 is the default browser for now, but later Spartan takes over as it has the new Edge rendering engine (but it can fall back to IE11 for legacy sites). The Preview 9926 build has Internet Explorer 11 for the browser, however it does have some bits of the new Spartan one coming later this year. Specifically, you can enable the new rendering engine in IE11, the same one that is found in Spartan.

  • ORMs – Love them or hate them?

    18 Dec 2014 | 1:59 am
    For many reasons we have grown to love our ORMs. We enjoy the simplicity of Entity Framework, the way it separates us from the old much unappreciated world of stored procedures and the T-SQL. We also love the nHibernate for its maturity and the amount of features it provides. What they give us is simplicity and a neat level of abstraction over the database access code which allows us to develop quicker, all for free. But we all know that if someone gives us something for free, there must be a catch. Well, nothing is free in this world. In this case we get tons of unnecessary overhead. Even…

    11 Dec 2014 | 5:05 am

If you need more than just one look, there is a good chance that you are doing something wrong. And if you scratch you head an think: “What the heck was I thinking?”, you have definitely done it wrong. But what have gone wrong? Most probably the code works fine and at some point you knew it inside out. Why can’t you remember it now? Maybe your code wasn’t written clearly enough and in accordance with best coding…
  • How to use custom fonts in Android apps (and not get fat)

    Daniel Dekański
    1 Aug 2014 | 3:52 am
    Fonts have always been a vital part of brand identity and UI design. With the development of modern Web standards it has become easy to implement customized fonts in websites, but native mobile apps somehow still lag behind in this area. Platform guides warn us against unleashing our creativity in that aspect and state that the built-in fonts have been optimized for memory and performance constraints of mobile devices. I think today, with more and more horse power under the hood of our latest mobile gadgets, we should not limit ourselves to the modest assortment of default typefaces. Going…

Have you ever wondered if such a model could be created for a software design process? I did and here are my thoughts on it. Obviously a detailed implementation cannot be touched by such a “bird’s eye architecture-cheat-sheet” but I think a general description with some design tips can be achieved. So without further ado I bring to you: “The 11 blocks of software…

    It would be fair to say that office jobs have advantages and drawbacks. On the plus side, it’s a chance to escape from the cold and sit in a so-called comfy environment.

  • 7 Ways To Screw Up A Table of Authorities

    Deborah Savadra
    2 Jan 2015 | 2:30 am
    Microsoft Word's Table of Authorities feature isn't exactly known for its user-friendliness. Nobody's ever said the word "automagically" about it. And more than one enterprising software vendor has found a lucrative niche making an easier-to-use interface for TOAs. I've had to use this feature myself on several occasions recently, and I've rediscovered seven ways you can easily (and thoroughly) screw up a Table of Authorities.

    In my observation, if there's one thing you lawyers love, it's repeating yourselves. No, not when you speak; it's when you write. Y'all recycle so much old material from briefs and other documents, it puts Ed Begley, Jr. to shame. Some of the problems with all that cutting and pasting are pretty obvious: another client's name being left in (oops) or funky formatting that doesn't match the new document. But others aren't. What sort of evil stuff lurks in that text you just pasted over from your last magnum opus? And how's it going to undermine your next court filing? Click the link below to…

Except for the literature enthusiast, most people would rather watch the movie than read the book. And even those who would read the book would rather watch the news than read a newspaper. Plus, what we see impacts us more than what we read because it seems much more real. That being said, blogs are still very popular and words are still necessary, even if it is only to accompany the video. There is a happy medium where the reader and the watcher can be found and that is in hosting or…

  • How to Optimize for Different Branches of a Chain

    Andre Sólo
    23 Jan 2015 | 12:49 am
    Rachel Lindteigen recently penned a great piece on how to manage SEO for different local branches of a franchise. This presents a real problem for SEO because there are often individual websites, or pages on a single domain, for each location. They all represent the same brand and try to rank for the same keywords—often in very nearby geographic areas. We’ve found that different locations of any chain business can have similar problems, even if they’re not actually franchised. So how do you get them all to rank without cannibalizing each other? Rachel offers a few…

When you search for a brand by name, the “knowledge graph” beside the results will now display the company’s social media accounts, making it easy to click through to any of them. (This isn’t automatic for all businesses, however; we’ll tell you how to get yours included below.) This is quite a change for Google. Previously the search engine only showed a link to a brand’s G+ page, which made a certain kind…

    If you’re a regular user of Google AdWords, chances are good that you have plenty of ads you use on an ongoing basis—both as-is and as templates for new campaigns, split tests or special promotions. And if you do a lot of that kind of templating then you’ve probably been saving them in AdWords’ Shared Library. But that option is going away. Google made the announcement just a few days ago, and set the deadline for killing Shared Ads as February 11. That gives users just a few scant weeks to figure out how they’re managing their campaigns going forward. Understandably, the…

    Tony Danova
    25 Jan 2015 | 2:00 pm
    The total number of apps people are using hasn't changed much over the past few years. This means users are consolidating their app choices, and spending more and more time with a few favorites. This creates added pressure to stand out in the app stores, and develop apps that can gain and keep a loyal audience. In a recent report from BI Intelligence, we discuss why it is becoming increasingly important that developers field a competitive app-marketing strategy for triggering downloads and encouraging sustained use, and retaining users.

    As we come to terms with the terrible events that occurred at the offices of Charlie Hebdo, I think we need to be cognizant of  what these attacks really mean, and how our response to these events (even in far away Malaysia) has severe repercussions on our future. As a Blogger and Techie, I’m 100% for absolute ‘no holds-barred’ Freedom of expression.. I’ve written so much on the subject it begins to bore people, but we have so little freedom of expression in this country, we must fight to preserve what we have, and rise up to pursue even more. The pursuit of freedoms…

    28 Dec 2014 | 12:36 am
    Yesterday I Googled something about maxis that took me to a link. Unfortunately, Firefox wasn’t happy with Maxis, because I got the following screen: Firefox is the first of the mainstream browsers to end support of SSLv3, ever since Poodle was published. For those of you who aren’t keeping tabs of security issues–Poodle was a big vulnerability discovered in the 2nd half of 2014, that affected the SSLv3 protocol. The only fix for Poodle was to completely stop using SSLv3 altogether, not a bad idea, since the protocol itself is nearly 18 years old. In other…

Somehow every time I typed on the browser, it would re-direct me to a Lazada advert. Now this looks…

The email was marked as SPAM by Gmail, and trying to visit the site further sparked more warnings from Firefox AND my anti-virus.

Hopefully this post gives you an indication of just how sophisticated these attacks are, and manages to educate you on the one true way…

    24 Jan 2015 | 1:52 pm
    Como de costumbre, Apple disfrutó de ventas históricas durante la pasada temporada navideña, y aunque la compañía no revelará sus resultados oficiales hasta el 27 de enero, si nos basamos en el último informe de activación de teléfonos inteligentes de Consumer Intelligence Research Partners, está claro que Apple dominó la temporada de compras navideñas, al quedarse con un 50% de todos los teléfonos inteligentes activados durante el último trimestre del 2014. Dicho esto, es más que probable que Tim Cook anuncie otro trimestre con ventas récord, sobre todo, si tenemos en cuenta…

    Dear EarthTalk: How is it that antibiotics are being “overused,” as I’ve read, and what are the potential consequences? – Mitchell Chase, Hartford, CTThe development and widespread adoption of so-called “antibiotics”—drugs that kill bacteria and thereby reduce infection—has helped billions of people live longer, healthier lives. But all this tinkering with nature hasn’t come without a cost. The more we rely on antibiotics, the more bacteria develop resistance to them, which makes treating infections that much more challenging.According to the U.S. Centers for Disease…

    Looking to switch from your ISP DNS to another provider? I was surprised to find out that using a free public DNS server from a reputable company was far better than using my local ISP DNS, especially when travelling in foreign countries. I was recently in India and was getting very frustrated with the constant Webpage cannot load errors followed by the website loading 5 seconds later. I kept seeing the DNS lookup failed message, so I figured let me try another DNS provider and that made an absolute world of difference.

    If you have a file on your computer with a non-recognizable extension, then Windows will simply assign that file a generic file icon. If you work in a corporate environment, this can happen all the time with custom software applications using proprietary formats. Even if you are a home user, it might be worth your time to change the default icon that is assigned for a text document or for all PDF documents, etc. This tip is really just for customizing the look and feel of Windows to your liking. In Windows XP, changing a file type’s icon was very simple and could be done via Windows…

    What is Dynamic DNS you might be asking? Basically, dynamic DNS is a service provided by third-party providers whereby a constantly changing IP address given by an ISP is updated regularly and associated with a hostname given by the company. If you have a broadband Internet connection at home, you more than likely have a dynamic IP address. A dynamic IP address changes every so often, as compared to a static IP address, which never changes. Normally, a changing IP address does not cause any problem until you try to connect to a local device from outside of your home network. With a…

    I don’t know about you, but I get bored of the smartphone I have after 12 months of ownership! Mobile manufacturers release new models all the time. They often have innovative new features which our existing handsets don’t contain. To take advantage of such new gadgets, we usually upgrade our smartphones and cell network contracts. More often than not, that involves changing the network provider to get the best deal. Once upon a time cell networks would match upgrade deals from their rivals. These days, competition isn’t so aggressive. They are keen to retain their existing customers.

They are also useful for new sites that have few inbound links going to them from external websites. One of the most popular PPC services on the Internet is Google AdWords. Of course, the other major search engines also operate systems for corporate clients too. When you first sign up for such a service, one thing that will become obvious is how complex they are to use!

    When I first got into the online business/internet marketing space (way back in 2004) one of the ideas I saw thrown around a lot was this notion of getting business on “autopilot”.

  • WARNING: Are You Ruining Your Career by Following This Common Piece of Freelancing Advice?

    John Morris
    9 Jan 2015 | 10:59 am
    When I first entered the web design world, I felt like a fish out of water. For a long time, I felt like I really didn’t belong. Admittedly, my background is probably a bit atypical. I wasn’t born a “geek”. I grew up in a military and sports-oriented family. My first job ever was working construction for my dad. I was a star football player in high school. And, I had a fairly extensive background in sales my first few years in the workforce. I certainly wasn’t in the Mark Zuckerberg mold of learning to code from age 7. I was 23 before I even know what web design…

    In this episode of the John Morris Show, I teach you how to use Elance and ODesk to build a successful freelance web design business. This 6-part strategy is what I used to prove all my friends and family wrong when they said I’d never make it as full-time web designer. And, to be blunt… if your freelance business is based 100% on sites like Elance and ODesk.. you’re being foolish. You could be working less and making more by implementing the 6 simple steps in this video. Over time, these steps will start to seem a bit “magical” because you’ll have new…
  • How to Avoid Clients From Hell BEFORE They Ever Hire You

    John Morris
    21 Aug 2014 | 4:26 pm
    Some clients just suck. There’s really no nice way to put it. Learning how to expose and avoid them BEFORE you let them hire you will keep you from tearing your hair out (and stave off the gray hair for just a few more years). Of course, it’s fun to joke about it… but dealing with hellish clients is actually serious as… well hell! That’s because getting good at avoiding clients who just don’t fit well with your personality and how you operate will help you avoid getting seriously burnt out and overwhelmed. And, it’ll keep you loving your job which…

    24 Jan 2015 | 7:50 am
    Remember Opera? It used to be a really awesome browser back in the day. Now it has largely been reduced to a Google Chrome fork. This is not to say that the latest version of the Opera browser is absolutely terrible. The current version – it just feels too similar to Chrome and doesn’t set itself apart as much.This is why I’m glad to introduce the Otter browser. It’s an ambitious project to keep version 12.x of the Opera browser user interface alive and current (with the help of Qt5). As awesome as that is, there’s one thing to keep in mind – Otter is not an…

    Windows 10 has been something of a tease so far. There have been hints that it could be a good operating system, protestations that it will be great, but a series of preview builds that have been a little uninspiring. With the release of build 9926, it appears that Microsoft is starting to deliver on its promises. From this release we can see that Windows 10 is actually starting to take shape. Microsoft is clearly pleased with the progress that has been made because it has simplified the process of upgrading from Windows 7 and Windows 8 -- Windows Update can be used to install the Technical…

    For years now, we Linux fans -- yes, myself included -- have been dreaming of the fabled "Year of the Linux Desktop". What does that mean? To have Linux-based operating systems snag a bigger piece of the desktop pie, if not a majority. While a majority share of the desktop is admittedly absurd, a respectable share was always something I considered a possibility. For some, this desire stems from a hatred of Microsoft and Windows; that is not my stance, however. No, I love both Linux-based operating systems and Windows; I just want Linux distros to get a bit more respect. A lot of work goes…

    Alan Buckingham
    24 Jan 2015 | 6:50 pm
    Thankfully the media hype over the Ebola virus has died down. It was never a serious threat thanks to the nature of the way it spreads and the lack of actual cases in the US. Africa isn't quite as lucky, as the outbreak is a bit worse. In fact, according to the CDC, cases totaled only four in the US and one in the UK, while Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone were less fortunate, totaling up over 13,000. So, it's still serious enough, and technology can be used in the fight against this disease. Dell is working in this fight to combat the deadly illness. That isn't an easy task, but every…

    No matter which Ikea you go to, they are unsparingly massive and for unfamiliar visitors, getting lost is not uncommon and so is falling asleep on one of those cosy beds or sofas. While some of us may have our fair share of the said experience, no one can beat Bro Bible writer Harvey Champine, whom had gotten away living in one of the Ikea malls for two stays. Yes, you heard that right, two days. According to Harvey, it was one of those rare days where he had off and so, instead of staycation or whatever things normal folks do, he scurried to Ikea to have a hearty meal of cheap hotdog.

  • Dangerous glass fibers in cigarettes worsen lung damage for smokers

    19 Jan 2015 | 7:58 pm
    Shocking new research reveals that a specific type of lung cancer many smokers develop comes from tiny tears in their lung tissue caused by microscopic glass fibers, also known as glass wool, found in many conventional cigarette filters. These rips in the epithelial (soft) tissue fuel the development of tumors and cancerous cells due to the constant overload of toxins, namely pesticides, nicotine and ammonia, contained in commercial cigarette smoke. The filters of typical commercial cigarettes contain microscopic, needle-shaped shards of glass wool (like fiberglass insulation) which escape…

    These days instead of just testing the performance of the smartphones, people are also very much interested in testing the durability and strength of the devices. Due to this, you will find lots of reviewers doing the durability tests like Bend Test, Screen Scratch Test, Drop Tests etc. Hope that you remember the controversy started with the bend test of iPhone 6 Plus.

  • 10 Steps To Finding a Job at a Boston Startup

    Joe Kinsella
    25 Jan 2015 | 3:00 pm
    It’s no secret some of the best job opportunities in the Boston area are in technology startups. Last year venture capitalists invested almost $5 billion in local companies, making the tech sector one of the fastest growing segments of our local economy. In addition to the professional freedom and challenges that comes with joining a startup, the re-opened IPO market and a steady flow of M&A hold out the possibility of financial success should you pick a winner. But choosing the right startup can be challenging for professionals already in the community, and even more so for those…
  • 46th Anniversary: The Mother of All Demos

    Joe Kinsella
    24 Jan 2015 | 11:13 am
    Last year while reading Walter Isaacson's The Innovators, I was surprised to learn for the first time about The Mother of All Demos, a presentation by computing pioneer Douglas Engelbart in 1968. A YouTube video of the presentation is provided below. In the video you can see the heritage of many of the modern technologies and services upon which our industry is built (e.g. personal computer, mouse, document collaboration, peer to peer networking, and more). "I don't know what Silicon Valley will do when it runs out of Doug's ideas." --Alan Kay

    24 Jan 2015 | 10:54 am
    I’ve made a few visits to Andreessen Horowitz over the last two years, and each time paid little attention to the books on the wall to wall bookshelves in the lobby. Arriving a little early for an informal coffee meeting last November, I spent a few minutes reviewing the books, which ranged from histories (e.g. Ambrose’s D Day) to tech non-fiction (e.g. Innovator’s Dilemma) to self-help / how-tos (e.g. Learning Rails). When the partner I was meeting came out to meet me, I couldn’t help but ask: “Where do all the books come from? Partners bring them in?” “Oh no,” he said.

    The end of last year I spent a day in the Silicon Valley talking with a few venture investors and entrepreneurs to get a better sense of the current market. This pre-dated the raising of our B round, so the discussions were informal, and mostly with people with whom I had a pre-existing relationship. On the appointed day, I traveled from San Francisco down to Sand Hill Road to meet six different investors and two entrepreneurs. Here are random comments / takeaways from my chats: Why SV VCs Don’t Invest in Boston I know that it’s not that SV VCs never invest in Boston (e.g. CloudHealth,…
  • Why Google Glass Was Not a Disruptive Innovation

    Joe Kinsella

    Monday is the last day you can purchase Google Glass. The controversial Google X research project will be taken off the shelf as part of its move into a product division under Tony Fadell, the former founder / CEO of Nest Labs. While the debate over whether Glass was a success or a failure will continue, the over focus on the privacy concerns of Glass has blurred the real reason for its lack of success: its failure to deliver a compelling solution to any particular target market. Disruptive innovations have certain basic qualities (as detailed in The Innovator’s Dilemma). These include:…

    Our expectations about what exactly our computers can achieve is changing. We’re no longer tied to PCs or even laptops, and flexible technology is starting to hint at a future where electronics easily (and consistently) interface with our everyday lives. Organic electronics is groundbreaking enough, but an additional ‘wow’ factor in future tech has to be gesture recognition. It’s surprising just how much can be achieved with organic electronics, and the incorporation of flexible technology and its use in applications such as bio-scanners is interesting. What makes this possible is the…

    One thing about modern technology is the fact that these days products become obsolete almost as soon as they are released. It wasn’t like that in the glorious days of “Analogue” where things would last for years. Take cameras as an example. I bought my first quality single lens reflex 35mm film camera when I was a teenager and it still works just as well today. However I have owned maybe 4 or 5 Digital cameras in less than 10 years and the main reason for changing was to “upgrade” to the more up to date version. It’s the same with TV’s.

    Detroit. It was once the factory of America. No more. For most of us, Detroit has been a city in decline for much or all of our lives. The population has declined rapidly, and everyone has seen the images of abandoned buildings, drug violence and abject poverty. In other words, Detroit is the perfect place to begin anew. There is an energy there as people begin to rebuild. A willingness to experiment. A stubbornness to succeed. Tech startups can play a pivotal role in rebuilding, but infrastructure is needed. We are seeing a dramatic increase in the number of Detroit based startups looking…

I was also waiting for Sony to start balking at the re-publication of a lot of that information by the news sites. And sure enough, they’re now calling it stolen information, and threatening publications that are sharing it with the public. It reminds me distinctly of the situation we found ourselves in in 2009 when a hacker delivered a truckload of internal Twitter information. See In Our Inbox: Hundreds Of Confidential Twitter…

Once that’s done MTailor has your measurements, which they say are 20% better than actual tailors they used for a study. I’ve never owned tailored shirts but I should have. I have a longer body than average and generally buy tall shirts when I can find them. That’s been harder with…

  • Ramblings of an Entrepreneur

    Renee Schmidt
    8 Jan 2015 | 12:13 pm
    The life of an entrepreneur is not a particularly easy one. Doors open one day and for weeks or months new ones can remain shut. When doors are shut and no amount of knocking will open them, there’s nothing to lean on but certainty. Sometimes that certainty stems from a distant reminder of when a door unexpectedly flung open in the past. Other times that certainty borders on mania, stemming from nothing more than an inexplicable knowing from within. People sometimes remark to me of their admiration of how far I’ve come as an entrepreneur (how far is actually debatable, but that’s a…

    26 May 2014 | 12:40 pm
    This past week I listened to a presentation for young professional (20s and 30s) from one of the largest asset management firms in the world. The objective, which is of course to educate the audience, is also meant to help the firm snatch up talent and future wealth management clientele while those prospects are still spring chickens. Although I found the information presented to be generally useful and relevant to the respective audience, I couldn’t help but take a devils-advocate view on —well— just about everything. I bit my tongue until they presented this one particular example…

    Malaysia Airlines ‘ website has been hacked today by the cyber-attack group Lizard Squad, which now appears to be calling itself ‘Official Cyber Caliphate’. The national carrier’s site shows a header that says ‘404 – Plane Not Found’, likely a reference to the loss of Flight MH370 last March and the shooting down of Flight MH17 in July.

  • Why Three buying O2 is bad for consumers

    23 Jan 2015 | 4:32 am
    Competition is what has kept the UK’s mobile industry competitive over the years, but recent acquisitions and consolidation are making the marketplace less competitive than ever. Spanish telecoms group Telefonica put O2 on the market a few months ago, and there has been interest from a number of parties including BT, but it appears that the UK’s largest mobile network will soon be sold to Three-owner Hutchison Whampoa for £10 billion. Three has been one of the major disruptive forces in the UK’s mobile market since its launch, offering users large data bundles and unlimited…
  • Windows 10 upgrade will be free for Windows 7 and 8 users

    22 Jan 2015 | 5:32 am
    Microsoft has announced that it will offer Windows 7 and 8 users a free upgrade to Windows 10 when it is released later this year. The free upgrade will be available for 12 months after the release of Windows 10, as Microsoft has decided that it is more important to get the greatest number of people using Windows 10 as quickly as possible than to squeeze a few more dollars out of their existing customers. Apple has long offered free upgrades to its OSX operating system, and it results in them having fewer legacy installs to support and has the bonus of keeping users happy that they are still…

So far, Apple has had the advantage due to its sleek designs and usability, however recent years have seen Android phones become sleeker and more aesthetically pleasing.

  • Eliminating Google Analytics Referral Spam

    Hilton Lipschitz
    18 Jan 2015 | 7:42 am
    It seems that the Google Analytics use of a public tracking code was a mistake. Anyone can use your tracking code on their site, which adds to your traffic, or they can create ghost visits and spam referrals by hammering Google Analytics with your code while never visiting your site. Oh, and the codes are easy to guess, so they do not even need to know about your site. In most cases, this is perfectly harmless (IMHO) as only Google Analytics data is affected and your reports look funny. Your ad stats, if not Google, remain the same as they are independent. The only reason I am talking about…

    StackOverflow Programming happens when much of the functionality of an application is copied and pasted from the code examples found on StackOverflow. Unfortunately, it’s becoming the most popular and common programming paradigm amongst younger programmers, leading to (1) shockingly shoddy, bug laden, slow, incomprehensible, unmaintainable programs that work only once, and (2) to programmers who do not understand what they are doing, their work and how to solve problems. For example1, one of my interns came into my office this week to see if there was a way to do dates and times easily…
  • Write Timestamps Containing Milliseconds to MongoDB in C++11

    It took me several hours today to figure this one out, so I thought I’d write it up lest I forget. I have a C++11 application that rapidly writes new documents to a MongoDB instance and I need high-resolution timestamps to determine the order things were written. The problem is that the C++ standard time_t structure reports in seconds, so builder.appendTimeT("updated_at", std::chrono::system_clock::to_time_t(std::chrono::system_clock::now()) ); creates an ISODate without milliseconds in MongoDB. There are many solutions to be found using Boost::time1, but since my code needs to be…

In my case I write a lot of code in C++, Objective-C, Ruby, Javascript and HTML as part of large, complex projects. Often I am unsure how best to write a snippet or function. One way would be to create a branch in the project, run and experiment, deal with compiling, branch again to try another solution, compile some more and work it out. But that is a slow process (and quite dangerous if you leave these experimental branches in, or forget to branch at…
