  • Nike, Huge IP Proponent, Blatantly Infringes Shawne Merriman's Trademark

    Techdirt.

    17 Apr 2014 | 3:47 pm
    Let's lay out a couple of things we know. First, trademark is one of the better IP laws out there, ostensibly designed to limit customer confusion between brands (though it's still open to significant abuse). We also know that Nike, maker of all things apparel, firmly believes in the strongest of protections against anyone infringing on any of their intellectual property. We also know that Nike firmly believes that limits on copying sure as hell don't apply to Nike. But I'm not sure we knew just how brazen they could be. Such appears to be the case when Nike decides to just blatantly use…

    One of the most recognizable cars on the road is going to be a little less recognizable starting this year. The reigning bestselling car in the United States, the Toyota Camry, is getting a design overhaul for the 2015 model. Toyota made the announcement today at the New York Auto Show. The redesign takes the same chassis and builds an entirely new car on top of it, using nearly 2,000 new parts. In fact, looking at exterior and interior, the only direct holdover from the previous Camry is the roof. The result is a slightly longer car with a sharper, more sporty front end. Meanwhile, the…

    With the new Google Camera app, you can choose where your photo is focused after you shoot, and then dial in whatever amount of lens blur you like to separate the subject from the background.

  • Brooks-Range replaces tent poles with internal cords to save weight

    17 Apr 2014 | 7:14 pm
    Tent poles have to be one of the most hated types of sports equipment in the world. They represent the long, difficult process of setting that huge, overly complex base camp tent up at quarter to midnight. If you're really unlucky, they get twisted and knotted into an unkempt pile or break in the middle of the night. One tent manufacturer has identified an interesting way of eliminating a few of those poles, trading the multi-prong tent pole system for a tent body with integrated elastic cord in a design aimed at saving weight and hassle. ..

    How can a battery last forever? As the leading innovator in cost-effective energy storage products, Imergy is stepping in the right direction to make the everlasting battery possible. Imergy utilizes a Vanadium flow battery design, originally thought up at NASA. The popular rechargeable Lithium Ion batteries, used today in most devices, consume its components in a very short time, preventing long term storage, in favor of its small footprint. The Imergy units are typically the size of a refrigerator. Vanadium flow chemistry process allows energy storage and retrieval to be 75% efficient,…

  • Why Does Facebook Want You To Broadcast Your Location To Your Friends?

    17 Apr 2014 | 3:35 pm
    Facebook is trying to get you to share even more information, this time by beaming your location to your friends all the time. The optional feature, called Nearby Friends, is built to help you find people around you. You can tailor the options to prevent specific friends from seeing your location. Nearby Friends alerts you to when friends are in your area, and allows you to share your precise location with them for a set period of time. On the upside, it might inspire some friends to meet up in the real world.  The success (or lack thereof) of place-based social apps like…

Loom announced the deal on its company blog. Dropbox recently announced an update to its photo sharing capabilities with its Carousel feature, and the Loom team will likely join Carousel as the home for syncing and sharing the ever increasing amounts of photos people take on their devices.

    When Apple first introduced Siri three years ago, she amazed the world with her warm voice and her human-like voice response. But the years since her debut have been quietly underwhelming, in large part because Siri isn't able to access the wide range of apps that are available on the iPhone. So a group of University of Pennsylvania developers have hacked Siri with the idea of going it alone and building their own Siri App Store.

  • Facebook Adds a Feature That Lets People See Your Location — But It’s Optional, Optional, Optional

    Harry McCracken
    17 Apr 2014 | 11:20 am
    Facebook is announcing a new feature for its iPhone and Android apps called Nearby Friends. If you choose to turn it on, and have friends who do likewise, you’ll get notified when you’re in the same vicinity — so you could discover you’re both at the same movie theater, for instance, or both happen to be attending the same conference. In broad strokes, at least, Nearby Friends is conceptually similar to Highlight and other ambient social-networking apps. The category was hot, very briefly, a couple of years ago — at the time, Facebook bought one such app, Glancee…

It was the Facebook game that made Facebook gaming famous. A lot has happened since then — particularly to Zynga, FarmVille’s creator. The company boomed, went public, paid a lot of money to buy Draw Something developer OMGPOP, saw its stock crater, went through multiple rounds of layoffs and brought in former Xbox chief Don Mattrick to replace founder Mark Pincus as CEO.

  • SDN for hyperscaling

    Jim O'Reilly
    17 Apr 2014 | 1:00 pm
    The primary objective of SDN for hyperscaling is to allow central provisioning of network connectivity, just like the on-the-fly provisioning for virtual machines. Software-defined networking (SDN) is poised to play a growing role in IT as we head into an era in which IT is dominated by inexpensive, powerful hardware such as x64 servers. These are replacing earlier mainframes and client-server systems, and they support phenomenal growth in stored data and compute power. This high-volume, rapid compute environment is known as hyperscaling. A crucial element of this growth is virtualization.

That’s the bad news. The good news is that while corporate networks must be on guard against frontal attacks, tightening security around other online presences such as social media may help enterprises to ward off such foreign snooping.

They require hydroponic lights for the marijuana plants to grow – and the huge amounts of excess heat given off make them easily spottable for a would-be criminal with a drone carrying infrared cameras. One such man says that after finding a property with a cannabis farm he and his crew either burgle or 'tax' the victim."Read more of this story at Slashdot.

This gave the DNA enough time to acclimate to its new environment and interact with the egg's development factors, which erased each of the donor cell's existing history and reprogrammed it to act like a brand new cell in an…

  • Say Hello To Microsoft 2.0

    John Kirk
    17 Apr 2014 | 4:15 am
    Last week I said goodbye to Microsoft. This week I say hello to Microsoft 2.0. But before we look at where I think Microsoft is headed, let’s take a quick look at where they’re coming from. The further back you look, the further forward you can see. ~ Winston Churchill Microsoft 1.0 had one of the most successful business models of all time. But no matter how successful Microsoft became, management seemingly could not abide the thought of any other technology company sharing the spotlight of success. If a competitor was being successful with customers Microsoft wasn’t…

    I’m not going to try to convince you that, in the case of the tech industry, history does not repeat itself. In some cases, it does and it will. Rather, I’m going to tell you why any claim, or any conclusion, being made today that we are waiting for history to repeat itself is premature. I speak with VCs, C-level executives, pundits, and any opinionated type about things related to the theory and philosophy of the technology industry. My most valued discussions come from those who have been in this industry since the beginning. Their observations are time and time again better…

    The near constant discussion of mobility and various types of mobile computing can easily give people the impression nobody cares about or uses anything but tablets, smartphones and notebooks. In reality however, that viewpoint couldn’t be further from the truth, especially when it comes to business use of various computing devices.On a regular, day-to-day basis, the device that doesn’t just lead but dominates the usage of US business employees is the good ol’ desktop PC.

    By: Hillel Fuld (@hilzfuld) So I was asked to come speak at a Microsoft BizSpark event last week. The topic I chose was how to market your brand in 2014. I know, shocker. The thing is, I genuinely believe that my whole “philosophy” in marketing can be summed up in two words. Of course, you are going to have to watch the entire speech to learn what the two words are. Wait, what do you mean you can fast forward to the end to get the two words and not watch the whole thing?

    Eli Lilly bet its entire business model on patents years back, rather than on creating useful products that people want to buy. Lately it's been having trouble getting new patents, and is reacting extremely poorly to the fact that its last-gasp efforts to get new patents aren't working. As we've noted, a few years back, Canada rejected some patent applications for some Eli Lilly drug after the Canadian patent board "determined that the drug had failed to deliver the benefits the firm promised when obtaining the patent." In other words, after realizing that the drug is not useful, Canada…

Between free-to-play games, strong consumer feedback, and the overall failure of DRM to actually stop anyone actually interested in pirating games, movies or music, there just didn't seem to be much point any longer. With the advent of new crowdfunding business models, DRM made even less sense. But not only is DRM still around, legacy players using it are actually torpedoing otherwise useful leaps forward in business in story after story. And, despite the fact that some entrenched…

    Police carried out a raid on a home in Peoria, Illinois, in an attempt to unmask the person behind a Twitter account that lampooned the town’s mayor, according to a report in the Peoria Journal Star. A 27-year-old woman, who was one of three people in the house at the time of the raid, told the news outlet that the police seized every electronics item in the house, asked her about the Twitter account and told her an “internet crime” had taken place. Her boyfriend was reportedly charged with possession of marijuana. The account in question, @peoriamayor, showed a photo…

    Staying healthy is a lot like medieval warfare. Cells vs viruses. There are cells defending their castles and viruses trying to break through. If a sneaky virus manages to attack a cell, the cell fights it and notifies all the other castles about what to build to defend it. Man, learning about biology is so much easier when you have cute animations like this making it look like Game of Thrones.Read more...

Its arch rival, the Sony PS4, however, has sold 7 million units and counting. Nevertheless, we do know that having the right software will also help propel the sales of hardware, and Titanfall is one of such titles that has helped shift a number of Xbox One units recently, at least in the UK.

Nearly 60 percent think technological and scientific advances will make life in the future better, but 30 percent fear they will make life worse than it is today. Sparking the most anxiety: designer babies; robots as primary caregivers for the ailing and elderly; personal and commercial drones flying U.S. skies; and Internet-connected implants or other wearable devices.

    Shanghai WinSun Decoration Design Engineering, a Shanghai-based company, has created 10 3D-printed houses. Each house reportedly cost less than $5,000 and took less than 24 hours to construct. The printer used to create the homes was about 100 feet long, 33 feet wide and more than 20 feet tall. The "ink" was made from high-grade cement and glass fiber. The houses may not be up to snuff for 3D printing purists: They were not printed as a single item, but rather in parts that were later pieced together.

Rather than give up, however, they decided to start their own e-book publishing company, Smashwords, to give their book -- and others -- a chance.

    Written by Vaughn Rachal  The fact that some companies expect digital investments to produce returns immediately, shocks me.  To expect that just because you use digital tools or channels that results are going to instantly appear is delusional. I remember when my kids were young and we played video games, my wife would sometimes tell me, “Come on honey, let the boys win”.  I responded, “They will, one day”.  I knew the day would come when I would never win a video game against them again, unless we played an old school game like “Galaga”, one of my favorites.  My boys were 6…

    Exactly how does this happen? Sheer incompetence, that’s how. Today I read that Mt. Gox discovered an “old” wallet with 200,000 bitcoins in it. What the ever living…are you kidding me? From CNN: “On March 7, 2014, Mt.Gox Co., Ltd. confirmed that an old-format wallet which was used prior to June 2011 held a balance of approximately 200,000 BTC,” the statement said. Karpeles said that the discovery was reported to lawyers on March 8. The bitcoins were later moved to “offline” wallets. I’m sorry but, how in the hell do bitcoin supporters…

    A few weeks ago, I sat down next to a friend who happened to be in the middle of a conversation between a lawyer, a hacker, and philosopher and I was just in time for the “I hate the word ‘cyber’. FamousHacker#2138123 and I are trying to get people to stop using it.” Sigh.  At this stage the anti-“cyber” routine is really starting to sound a little bit high pitched – and I even *come from* a hacker community. But, it reminded me both that I owed Liquid Matrix an introductory post and that even though there is a place and role for the word, much of the hacker/security…

I seldom use the Google Maps Street View, only when I’m looking at my friend’s or relative’s house abroad. It seems that this feature of Google Maps has been around for quite sometime already and they call it Business View (ok :D). It’s actually pretty cool being able to walk inside stores and businesses (virtually) and being able to see their products or items on display. I hope we’ll get to see our local stores’ own Business View…

    OtterBox sent over an OtterBox case for the Galaxy S5 earlier. Samsung has recently launched the Galaxy S5 and just yesterday, I got hold of Samsung’s latest flagship smartphone. The Galaxy S5 may be water and dust resistant but it is not shockproof. One of the things I do first after buying a smartphone is to look for a durable case. Of course you don’t want to risk your smartphone from getting chipped or scratched in case it accidentally slips from your hand. The OtterBox case for the Samsung Galaxy S5 I got was from the Commuter Series. The Commuter Series is one of OtterBox’s cases…

  • GM working on bringing down price of Chevy Volt for 2016 model

    17 Apr 2014 | 3:00 pm
    As a brand, the Chevy Volt is well-known in the electric vehicle market. That said, mind-share doesn't equal sales, and GM is set to step up its efforts to make the Volt the car that EV buyers end up choosing when it's time to buy. To fix this, GM is planning on bringing down the entry-level price of the 2016 Volt, and then offering tiered upgrades, similar to the way Tesla sells the Model S. At the low end, the 2016 Chevy Volt should cost just over $30,000, which is about $5,000 less than it currently costs now, bringing it closer in line with competing vehicles like the Honda Accord…

  • What is the Heartbleed Bug all about? Be safe, Change your Password.

    10 Apr 2014 | 1:56 am
    This Bug is in the OpenSSL’s implementation of the TLS/DTLS (transport layer security protocols) heartbeat extension (RFC6520); and hence the name Heartbleed bug. This bug allows anyone on the Internet to read the memory of the systems protected by the vulnerable versions of the OpenSSL software. This compromises the secret keys used to identify the service providers and to encrypt the traffic, the names and passwords of the users and the actual content. This allows attackers to eavesdrop on communications, steal data directly from the services and users and to impersonate services and…

Here is Giulia D'Amico, Vice President of Business Development, on their present and future: OLPC's mission to empower the world's children through education is far from over.

Sadly, so is Sugar. Once the flagship of OLPC's creativity in redrawing the human-computer interaction, few are coding for it and new XO variants are mostly Android/Gnome+Fedora dual boots.

    Tesla plans to build a massive new lithium ion factory that would double world production volume. Doing so could dramatically change the car industry: When Tesla first began working on its Model S saloon barely five years ago, lithium-ion batteries were priced at about $1,000 a kilowatt-hour (kWh). Manufacturers are notoriously secretive about pricing details, but industry insiders hint that prices have now slipped to anywhere from $400 to $750 a kWh. Even so, that means the 85 kWh pack in a Model S costs Tesla between $34,000 and $63,750. A study by the Boston Consulting Group projected that…

And this is mainstream media. There should be a bar by which one goes to prison for these kinds of lies.” Not only does Sean Penn defend authoritarianism, but he suggests that critics should be imprisoned for calling Hugo Chavez a dictator.

NVE says that this agreement (which seems to be a appointment's to their shareholders) is limited to the patents in the 2012 lawsuits.Disclaimer: the author of this post holds some shares in NVE

  • Mirror, mirror on the wall, who's the most corrupt of them all?

    Anupam Varghese
    9 Apr 2014 | 12:53 pm
    "Mirror, mirror, on the wall, who's the most corrupt of them all?"There is this story from the Bible [John 8: 1-11], of a 'condemned' woman, about to be stoned as the 'rules' then required, being brought infront of Jesus. His simple response was to ask anyone from the crowd who had never sinned, to throw the first stone. Each one of the accusers slithered away.I tried to imagine. If this incident had happened in the world we are living in today, not only would she have been stoned by the very people who had 'caught' her, each one of them; her captors would most likely also have been her past…

    There was once a fly, Shown a beautiful sky, Thrown a wonderful pie, O'er joyed! it tried, Flew higher and high, Till the lights drew nigh; Then hit a damn glass ceiling! Tried harder than hell,Cast all the spells,Rang all the bells,But down it fell,Godspeed him well! What could it tell? Kept hitting that damn glass ceiling! No longer a kid,Evolve it did, Diamond claws it hid;The skies now lit, This time it flew, Fast as it could; @###, who removed the damn ceiling?! Moral of the poem is: Always wear a helmet before you fly.

    We should look at our inherent strengths to solve some of our pressing needs. As a country, there are a few things pretty peculiar about India. Take for instance, the sheer size of some of its problems. Some of our 'problems' are as large as a few other countries' entire populations put together. Herein lies the opportunity as well. We are also, a massive sea of humanity yearning to serve its unmet needs and earn our rightful place under the sun. Technology has a huge role to play as well; not at loggerheads but complementary.October last year, Abhishek (Eko) and Ignacio (ex BMGF) published a…

    Blind people can usually read only words written in Braille, a tactile writing system written with embossed paper. Now, though, MIT offers an alternative. Braille is all well and good, but there is no question that the majority of books, newspapers, and signs are not available in that format. So a team of researchers from MIT Media Labs got together and created a ring, of sorts, that you strap around your finger and performs text-to-speech.

    In recent years the trend of accelerating startups has really taken off in North America. There are well over 100 accelerators and incubators in Canada alone.  This wave of organizations dedicated to fostering new companies caused the words "incubator" and "accelerator" to quickly become interchangeable; this is fundamentally incorrect, however. So we looked at the differences between the two types of programs. Now it seems there is a similar confusion between startups and small businesses. Is a startup not a small business? And are small business owners not entrepreneurs? If you want to…

    With less than two months to go until the season two debut of Orange Is The New Black, Netflix has released a trailer reintroducing viewers to Piper Chapman and her fellow inmates. When the first still shots of season two were revealed back in March, we learned that Orange Is The New Black will pick up right where it left off. The new trailer gives us further hints about how season one’s cliffhanger will be resolved, while also introducing viewers to a tougher, edgier, and more cynical protagonist than the Piper who led season one. We also get our first look at Vee, a menacing new…

    Recently I shared a (what I thought was) funny meme on my Facebook where Jesus was depicted making a joke (see below). It turns out, not everybody has a sense of humor when it comes to Jesus. I got some reactions from people who were ‘offended’ and ‘disappointed’ that I would post something like that. I admit, it bothered me a bit, and you know why? I never even hesitated before posting it. To me, it was so clearly funny, and not even close to being offensive. Or a profanity, as one commenter labeled it. It has really made me wonder: Where do you draw the line with…

    16 Apr 2014 | 9:00 pm
    (Northwestern University) One strategy for addressing the world's energy crisis is to stop wasting so much energy when producing and using it, such as in coal-fired power plants or transportation. Nearly two-thirds of energy input is lost as waste heat. Now Northwestern University scientists have discovered a surprising material that is the best in the world at converting waste heat to useful electricity. This outstanding property could be exploited in solid-state thermoelectric devices, with potentially enormous energy savings.

The team determined the different ways the drug SQ109 attacks the tuberculosis bacterium, how the drug can be tweaked to target other pathogens from yeast to malaria -- and how targeting multiple pathways reduces the probability of pathogens becoming resistant.

And some, like the lungfish, are adept at breathing air too. Theoretically, for a human to breath underwater all that’s required would be some sort of gill-like system. Enter Jeabyun Yeon, a student at the Samsung Art And Design Institute, who thinks he’s come up with exactly that. Dubbed the Triton Oxygen Respirator, Yeon’s design features miniature artificial gills extending out from a…

But Microsoft has been smart enough to make these management tools work across platforms and they could win IT hearts and minds --even if users continue for the most part to reject Windows phones.

Also tried sticking to a small ‘band’. In this case used instruments from SampleTank: Blue Phaser electric piano, Xpander Phat synth pad, Cosmic Pad synth pad, and Minimoog echo 2 synth lead. Also brought in some Abstract Atmosphere 50 from Garageband — which I used as my DAW. Image is from something I took out the window a bunch of years ago.

    Slapping on any old Instagram filter is easy. Adjusting contrast and saturation . . . that's a little bit more difficult. But adding that dramatic macro-effect lens blur? That's hard for any photography app to do successfully and subtly. The newly updated Google Camera App (free) for Android phones has a new feature called "Lens Blur" that required a lot of research and engineering to get just right. The result is shallow depth of field perfection. The Google Camera app works a bit differently than a professional-grade SLR lens, obviously. In the app, users edit the lens blur effect after the…

    We have all sorts of smart devices in our homes, and speaking of smart devices, you might be interested in smart lamps that come from LG.

This means that you can control the bulb thanks to the Android or iOS app, and you can even customize nine working modes that Smart Lamp supports. For instance, in Sleep Mode the light will slowly fade away as you fall asleep, and it will brighten when your alarm clock rings. In addition, LG also revealed OLED Table Lamp, and…

The FAA is accelerating the implementation of the next generation of aviation tracking following the disappearance of the Malaysian Airline Boeing 777. The agency has been working on a system called Automatic Dependent Surveillance Broadcast, or ADS-B, radio network. It allows controllers to monitor an aircraft from the time it takes off to the time it lands, using GPS satellite tracking, rather than…

    28 Mar 2014 | 2:05 pm
    Interesting 2 paragraphs from Fred Wilson's blog, talking about "what's next": But the roadmap has been clear for the past seven years (maybe longer). The next thing was mobile. Mobile is now the last thing. And all of these big tech companies are looking for the next thing to make sure they don’t miss it.. And they will pay real money (to you and me) for a call option on the next thing. It isn’t clear if the next thing is virtual reality, the internet of things, drones, machine learning, or something else. Larry doesn’t know. Zuck doesn’t know. I don’t know. But the race is on to…
  • Candy IPO Crushed

As we wrote in February, it was high time to run for the IPO gate before it closed on them, and they have. Good luck to them, they now have $500m in the bank now, a useful cushion against the slings and arrows of outrageous future misfortune. The c £8.5bn valuation (now c $7bn) will not be quite so easy to live with, I suspect. But nothing changes our analysis since February, this stock is a still very…

    Everybody loved Archie & Veronica before 1993 Today is the 25th "birthday of the Web", although strictly speaking that was the first proposal submitted, a memetic sperm if you like. The actual thing only came out in any recognisable form about 4 years later in 1991. For me it arrived 5 years after it's birth. It was summer 1994, the day I downloaded the newly released NCSA Mosaic software on Windows (It was already out on UNIX, but I didn't have a UNIX tin anymore). Suddenly, all that stuff I'd been doing before was easy (FTP, Gopher et al). The thing about Mosaic was it was easy to use,…

    Last month, Tim Cushing wrote about how the Lt. Gov. of Louisiana, Jay Dardenne, had sued Moveon.org over a billboard that used the state's trademarked "Pick your passion!" slogan. The suit was filled with so much technicality-probing nonsense, one wondered how a judge would be able to look through it without needing a couple of long naps. Chief among the claims was that folks seeing the billboard might somehow think the Lt. Governor was responsible for criticizing the Governor, Bobby Jindal, despite the fact the billboard wasn't meant for commercial purposes, criticized the same government…

    Some biblical characters lived for hundreds of years. (eg. Methuselah lived to be 969.) However, people living now don't quite get that old. Aging is a mysterious process that is slowly killing everyone, and there are more than a few projects working on ways to avoid death. Immortality could be a blessing or a curse, and maybe someday we'll find out which it is. Suspended animation is a real medical procedure, and some techniques are being tested in emergency rooms. The FDA has approved a procedure that will be used at UPMC Presbyterian Hospital to replace near-fatal patients' blood with a…
  • Nike, Huge IP Proponent, Blatantly Infringes Shawne Merriman's Trademark

    Let's lay out a couple of things we know. First, trademark is one of the better IP laws out there, ostensibly designed to limit customer confusion between brands (though it's still open to significant abuse). We also know that Nike, maker of all things apparel, firmly believes in the strongest of protections against anyone infringing on any of their intellectual property. We also know that Nike firmly believes that limits on copying sure as hell don't apply to Nike. But I'm not sure we knew just how brazen they could be. Such appears to be the case when Nike decides to just blatantly use…
  • Eli Lilly Enlists Congress In Fight Against Canada For Refusing Patent On Useless Drug

    Mike Masnick
    17 Apr 2014 | 2:29 pm
    Eli Lilly bet its entire business model on patents years back, rather than on creating useful products that people want to buy. Lately it's been having trouble getting new patents, and is reacting extremely poorly to the fact that its last-gasp efforts to get new patents aren't working. As we've noted, a few years back, Canada rejected some patent applications for some Eli Lilly drug after the Canadian patent board "determined that the drug had failed to deliver the benefits the firm promised when obtaining the patent." In other words, after realizing that the drug is not useful, Canada…
  • Square Enix: DRM Is Here To Stay

    There may have been a time in the past few years when you'd have sworn DRM was on its way out the digital door. Between free-to-play games, strong consumer feedback, and the overall failure of DRM to actually stop anyone actually interested in pirating games, movies or music, there just didn't seem to be much point any longer. With the advent of new crowdfunding business models, DRM made even less sense. But not only is DRM still around, legacy players using it are actually torpedoing otherwise useful leaps forward in business in story after story. And, despite the fact that some entrenched…

    One of the most recognizable cars on the road is going to be a little less recognizable starting this year. The reigning bestselling car in the United States, the Toyota Camry, is getting a design overhaul for the 2015 model. Toyota made the announcement today at the New York Auto Show. The redesign takes the same chassis and builds an entirely new car on top of it, using nearly 2,000 new parts. In fact, looking at exterior and interior, the only direct holdover from the previous Camry is the roof. The result is a slightly longer car with a sharper, more sporty front end. Meanwhile, the…

There’s already a veritable sea of cases to swim through, but fortunately for you, we’ve already navigated those waters. Here are some of the top Galaxy S5 cases in the early going. Speck…

  • New Google Camera App Lets You Defocus Background

    Kaushik
    17 Apr 2014 | 4:28 am
    One of the reasons why people prefer an SLR camera over compact cameras or camera phones, aside from the image quality, is that an SLR camera allows you to take photos with a shallow Depth of Field. Shallow depth of field makes the object of interest "pop" by bringing the foreground into focus and de-emphasizing the background. Achieving this optical effect traditionally requires a big lens and aperture, and therefore hasn’t been possible using the camera on your phone, at least, optically. Google has introduced a new mode, called Lens Blur, in the Google Camera app that lets you…

    Back during the days of Geocities, no website would be complete without a healthy dose of 256-color animated GIF images thrown in wherever possible. Twenty years later, GIF images haven’t aged a bit. Now more mature (and sometimes not), they still rule the internet in one form or the other whether they be providing demonstration of complex machinery, or showcasing something beautiful or posting awful memes. Today, social media websites and networking sites are teeming with thousands of interesting and funny GIF images. Here are 5 ways to make animated GIF images more enjoyable. GIF Print…
  • Popcorn Time is Netflix Type Movie Streaming for Pirates

    Kaushik
    12 Mar 2014 | 12:29 am
    It has been argued, and quite successfully, that piracy can be fought back by making content readily available to paying customers. Services such as Netflix, Amazon Instant Video and Hulu are based on this very model and appears to be largely successful, both in business and in cutting down piracy so much that BitTorrent traffic has been reduced in North America to only 7.4% from 31% five years ago, while Netflix now accounts for nearly one-third of total internet traffic in the continent. This is all great if you live in the U.S. But what if you don’t? Movie streaming through the…
  • How to Convert Image URLs Into a Thumbnail Gallery

    Kaushik
    11 Mar 2014 | 12:10 am
    There are typically three ways to share or post images on blogs, discussion boards and social media sites – 1) embed the full image with or without the image URL, 2) embed a thumbnail sized image with a clickable link to the original image or 3) post only the URL of the image, clickable or not. Each one has its merits and demerits. Embedding the original image allows the visitor of the blog or website or the intended recipient to view the full image without any further action. However, if the images are large like those from a digital camera with a several megapixel sensor, it might be…
  • Nothing to Hide, A Game Inspired by Govt. Surveillance

    Kaushik

The protagonist is a teenage girl named Poppy, who lives with her father in a world constantly under government surveillance. Poppy must sneak out of the house and across the city but without alerting the government's numerous surveillance tools. While a typical stealth game requires the player to stay out of enemy’s sight and security cameras, Nothing To Hide, being an anti-stealth game, requires Poppy to stay in sight of the cameras at all times. Wandering outside their view for longer than a few seconds gets…

It removes any spammy links from future AND past comments, which will prove especially convenient when you’re too busy to sift through your comments one by one (like I do).

    As it turns out, Nokia developed an internet tablet all the way back in 2001. It was called the Nokia M510, several thousand units were made, and it was functional. Sadly, market research showed that consumers were not yet ready for a device like this, and so the project was cancelled. It had a 800x600 display, ran EPOC (Symbian), and sported wifi. The stories are in Finnish, and since I don't speak Finnish, I had to rely on Google Translate (as a translator, this made me feel dirty). Now that Nokia's devices division is essentially dead, it wouldn't surprise me to see more of these stories…

    With the increased penetration of internet in our everyday life, issues with online privacy and security are becoming a key concern. The data that we input through the internet is not as secure as we hope it to be. VPN creates a virtual link or an Internet tunnel that connects two physical networks in separate locations and is accessible to all users. Security is guaranteed as the data sent through the tunnel is encrypted – hence the term is “private.” This security feature guarantees that there is no possible malicious interception by third party, such as hacking or espionage.

    With my bicycling friend, John Darwin, who also enjoys riding his bike in-town, I often head out on a Sunday afternoon looking for things I’ve never seen in Nashville. These days, that likely means a new real estate development or some area of town I’ve heard about, but have never seen. As the NCAA Women’s Basketball Final Four is in Nashville now (the championship game is Tuesday night, April 8), we decided to include a ride by the area of downtown where events are being staged.

For those who don’t recognize the term Cuecat as the punchline of a joke, I suggest a rapid glance at its Wikipedia entry and the wonderful one-liner by the late Debbie Barham, the comic and humor writer who said the Cuecat “fails to solve a problem which never existed.” A couple of years ago, I referred to the repetitive reinvention of the Cuecat as the…

In it, I wrote: Say, you have an interest in bicycling and you spend a few minutes on a Saturday morning visiting some online retailers to see what they have related to something you’re thinking about getting. Later, you notice that everywhere you go on the internet you see ads that look like the ad below. That’s advertising retargeting. I believe good advertising is a good thing. Good advertising can help us discover things we might otherwise miss. And the revenue from advertising helps keep lots of content…

  • Design for Curation

    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. View screenshots Swiping down to hide less-than-stellar photos is as satisfying as crossing…

    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…

    It was just meant to be a quick experiment. I started using a Nexus 4. I was going to go right back to my iPhone after a week. I was designing more and more Android interfaces at Twitter and realized I needed to more intimately grok Android UI paradigms. A week in it started feeling normal; the larger form factor was no longer a nuisance. A month in I didn't miss anything about my iPhone. Two months in I sold my iPhone 5 and iPad Mini. It has now been three months since I made the switch. I'm loving Android. I only missed having a good camera so I just upgraded to a Google Edition Samsung…

    There comes a time in every photographer's life when they must ask themselves what to do about all those photo RAWs filling up the tiny-compared-to-spinning-platters SSD on their primary machine. Easy, just get an external hard drive. Redundancy? Just get a Drobo or Synology NAS. More redundancy? Just backup the Drobo to Crashplan or Synology to Amazon S3 or Glacier. Done right? Sure those are all valid strategies for gadget lovers and professional photographers. I don't want to own, manage and think about more devices. Out of sight, out of mind. It all just takes up space, needs an extra…
  • Simplify.

    Paul Stamatiou
    30 Apr 2013 | 9:00 am
    I have been thinking a lot about simplifying my life recently. I started a stellar new job four months ago and it felt like a great time to change other parts of my life. I used to be a slave to my startups. If I wasn't working, I had a perpetual feeling of guilt that I should be working. That lead to many all-nighters and eventually landed me in the hospital last year after fainting twice from fever and dehydration. That reads more like an accolade to the workaholic culture of Silicon Valley, which joyously consumes posts like how Marissa Mayer worked 130 hours per week. It was most…

    A few weeks back a colleague and I were driving through Seattle, and we began to debate the reach of ODBC as a key data standard.  His perspective was that ODBC was really a C/C++ technology, and that as people have largely moved to other programming languages, the importance of ODBC has declined as well.  Well, I didn’t buy that argument but needed to do some research before I could refute him.  As I mainly tinker with iOS development these days, my awareness of what is happening in the programming world at large is well out-of-date.  Well, it didn’t take long to dig up some…

    We’ve been waiting for LG to announce the successor to the LG G2 as well as the latest flagship LG G3, but over the time, we’ve only heard rumours and speculations about what might be coming. So far, we know that the phone might be coming with a 5.5 inches of QHD display, and some other notable features including the Snadragon 800/801 processor along with 3 gigs of RAM. Then there were some more reports suggesting that the phone will feature a flat UI, we also got our hands on a screen shot to prove that. Now the latest leak shows us two images of what seems like the Japanese…
  • Samsung Outs Galaxy Gear Compatibility List

    16 Apr 2014 | 5:35 am
    Samsung just released a new list that contains the names of all the devices that will be compatible with Galaxy Gear smart phones. The list has 8 tablets, and 12 smart phones on it, covering almost all the phones that are running Android 4.3 Jell Bean or later. The Gear smart watches will work only on devices by Samsung, something that is pretty obvious. The devices were initially supported by the latest flagship, but now Samsung has unveiled a list showing 19 more devices. You can download the Gear Manager and Gear Fit Manager, the required apps that are used to sync the smart watches. You…
  • Amazon’s Smartphone Leaks Out

    Keeping aside all the new smartphones from big shots, today we have our hands on a smart phone from Amazon. Before we continue, it’s important to be aware of the fact that the phone hasn’t been announced as of yet. We got our hands on three leaked images and some other information about the upcoming smart phone shedding light on the specifications of the device. The design looks dubious but then again, it’s enclosed in a plastic shell so you can’t see how the actual phone looks like. Now the most interesting thing about this smart phone is the fact that it is sporting…
  • [How To] : Keep Your Windows XP Safe From Threats After End Of Microsoft Support

    Bilal Ibrar
    15 Apr 2014 | 1:09 pm
    Microsoft recently came out with the announcement that it will no longer be providing any support to users having Microsoft XP installed on their systems. This officially marks the end (post April 8th, 2014) of Microsoft XP’s run. Statistics say that up to 30% of the world’s personal computers (PC’s) are still using the highly popular Windows XP. This is quite a serious figure, which of course means it cannot be ignored. Microsoft has been pretty busy with encouraging the current Windows XP users to upgrade to the latest version of Windows OS, by pushing the security and safety aspect.

  • Google Updates KitKat Camera App

    Matt Brodnick
    17 Apr 2014 | 3:52 pm
    Earlier this week, Google quietly updated the stock camera app in Android KitKat 4.4 compatible devices, steadily rolling out this update to more phone models through the coming weeks. The Camera app feels streamlined overall, with noticeable changes in camera performance, features, and especially UI.  This of course stems from Google receiving sub-par feedback for image quality on their “flagship” Nexus devices, and since mid-2013 it’s become their main mission for mobile. LG already packed a decent camera on the Nexus 5, but in its first weeks of release, the final image…
  • AMD Reports Expected Improvement in Q1 2014 Earnings

    17 Apr 2014 | 3:04 pm
    After Intel reported their earnings for the first quarter of 2014, many people expected AMD’s earnings to mirror that of Intel’s or to do worse. Well, by the looks of it, AMD’s earnings have mirrored that of Intel’s in terms of remaining fairly stable and ensuring that their core business is strong. AMD reported a net loss of $20 million (or a non-GAAP profit of $12 million) on $1.4 billion in revenue which translates to a loss per share of about $0.02 or a non-GAAP profit per share of about $0.02. Wall Street’s estimates for AMD’s non-GAAP earnings were at…

    Sony’s popular PlayStation 4 console appears to be continuing its amazing momentum in terms of sales as Sony, the console’s maker, has announced that as of yesterday the company has shipped over 7 million units of the popular console. Since the console’s launch in mid november, only 5 months ago, they have managed to average over 1 million console sales per month. This does take into account the 1 million sold on the first day, but even if you take that number out, it puts the PS4 at 6 million units in 5 months, which still means over a million PlayStation 4 consoles sold…
  • Samsung and Globalfoundries Collaborate on 14nm FinFET

    17 Apr 2014 | 11:42 am
    Samsung and Globalfoundries have announced a partnership to collaborate on a global scale to deliver 14nm FinFET technology to their customers. This partnership is different from the already existing Common Platform Alliance which includes Globalfoundries, Samsung and IBM, but is likely a product of that relationship considering that IBM is mostly a research fab and doesn’t really produce many commercial wafers. This 14nm FinFET collaboration is an effort by both companies to build up enough fab capacity in order to satisfy the demand of their customers on this leading-edge technology.

However, I ordered the new 2014 Era by Jawbone because I thought I had lost my older model. I keep my Jawbone along with a couple of misc. adapters and wired Apple EarPods in a small vinyl pouch that I carry in my pocket. That pouch went missing for a week.  I couldn’t find it in all the usual spots that I normally leave it or drop it in. I figured that it was gone for good and that I had to replace the contents.

  • Why I switched back to Pandora Radio from iTunes Radio

    I really wanted to like iTunes Radio for two simple reasons. The first is that it’s integrated into all my iOS devices and iTunes and that just makes it easier to enjoy and control. The second reason was that since I’m already paying for iTunes Match $25/year (that I absolutely love), iTunes Radio is delivered to me Ad free. Yes I had high hopes that I would be able to drop my Pandora Radio subscription (yes I hate ads), and just use iTunes Radio, however I just resubscribed to Pandora Radio ($3.99/month, which ironically bills through my iTunes account). Why go back? I went back…

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

  • Obstacles That Keeps Us From Marketing

    Alex Goldfayn
    14 Apr 2014 | 9:14 pm
    I define marketing as consistently communicating your value to people who can buy from you. Here are the obstacles that keep us from doing so: 1. Fear: Of failing; of offending; of rejection. This is the single greatest impediment to marketing action. 2. Perfection: You have many chances to make good impressions. Take action when your marketing is good enough. Only you will know it’s not perfect. 3. Procrastination: Responding to urgent issues (fires) is reactive and keeps a lot of organizations, big and small, from doing the good work of communicating with buyers proactively.

So I spent some time last week defining the elements that go into this discipline: On-demand awareness: You may know what to do after you read an article, or attend a workshop, but can you recall it when it’s necessary? The information must be easily available, on paper, or in your head. Impactful trigger: The reason to begin doing what you know must be…

    Alex Goldfayn
    31 Mar 2014 | 8:57 am
    What’s the difference between knowing what to do, and actually doing it? You probably know what to do already. For example, we know that testimonials and referrals are nearly guaranteed ways to grow our revenue, but do we ask for them enough? As a friend and colleague said recently, “If we all did what we know to be the right thing, we would all have perfect bodies.” And none of us would work too much! As the author, consultant and Harvard professor David Maister once said at a small, private workshop of his that I attended, “You all know what to do. The difference…
  • The Best Marketing Is Simple

    Alex Goldfayn
    24 Mar 2014 | 8:56 am
    If you request two referrals per week and hit a 50 percent success rate (which is less than the results my two-step referral process creates for clients), you’ll get 50 new, very warm prospects to have sales conversations with. Close a third of those, and you have 16 new customers, without doing very much work at all. Ask your staff to do the same, and you’ll leverage the power of exponential marketing effort and growth. If you add the “Did You Know” question (“did you know we also do x, y, or z?”) to most of your conversations with customers and…
  • The Revenue Myth

    Alex Goldfayn
    17 Mar 2014 | 8:02 am
    Here are some common misconceptions about revenue growth, and my take on each: Revenue growth depends on sales effort. Perhaps, in the end. But it’s marketing effort, which is one-to-many, that allows interested prospects to volunteer themselves to your sales function. If you want to grow sales quickly, ironically, marketing will get you there faster than sales alone. Revenue growth demands heavy time investment. Not true. My average client grows 15 to 20 percent in their first year with me. They execute simple activities in 15 minutes per day, or less. A carefully-conducted…

On Wednesday, Stewart turned herself in, but she was released later on a $2,000 bond. Stewart was introduced to the show at the start of the fifth season.  By the…

    Arpit Verma
    17 Apr 2014 | 8:21 am
    Back in the days when iOS, Android and Windows Phone were not a part of our lives, we depended on gaming consoles or PCs for our gaming pleasures. Even the likes of PS 2 and PSP were a huge part of how we played some of the best game titles. Remember the good old days of FIFA 08 on PSP? However, since then, the gaming industry has moved northwards, and PSPs are a thing of the past especially as far as handheld console gaming goes due to the rise of smartphones. However, if you are old school and would still like to play some of the PSP titles on your iPhone, then PPSSPP is the perfect…

  • Twitter Acquires Cover: A Lockscreen Replacement App for Android

    16 Apr 2014 | 7:54 am
    The best thing about Android is the ability to customize the entire interface according to your taste. You can change the application icons as well as fonts and homescreen unlike iOS. However, one area that remains relatively unexploited on Android is the Lockscreen. Although since the jellybean update, we have had the ability to add widgets and customize the lockscreen to a degree, but it is barely enough for the Android enthusiasts. Most of them in such a case have to go to a third party application like maybe Widget Locker. However, Cover is an interesting application that adds…

A hot topic that sometimes becomes overly broad and leads to unrealistic expectations. Here are some key points I made.    For any digital publisher, relying on data is no longer an option nor a luxury. It has become a necessity.

  • How to Invest Time in Yourself

    Igor Ovsyannykov
    16 Apr 2014 | 11:06 pm
    Investing time in yourself is way better than investing money into something or someone else. When you invest in yourself and build valuable skill sets, you will never have to worry about unemployment again. If you were to strip Bill Gates of his assets and put him out on the street, he’d be back to earning a comfortable income in about a week. Why? Because he has tons of human capital. Sometimes the stress of life (bills, cleaning, children, etc.) can really start to take a toll on us, and it’s unfortunate. After sleeping and work, we only get about 8 hours a day to spend on other…

    This is my ultimate guide to royalty free music. So if you’re working on a commercial or personal video, these websites are your best friends. I haven’t made many videos in the past, but I’m getting more interested in them, so I figured I would share some valuable resources I’ve recently stumbled upon. Royalty free means that you can use copyrighted material or intellectual property without the need to pay license fees. So basically after paying a one-time license fee you can use the song as much as you want. For more information about how music licensing works, check out this…

  • 60 Spectacular Examples of Long Exposure Photography

    Igor Ovsyannykov
    13 Apr 2014 | 10:15 pm
    Long exposure photography involves a long-duration shutter speed. Shutter speed is the length of time your camera’s shutter is open while taking a photo. While you have the shutter open, light hits the film or image sensor. Depending on how long you have your shutter open, the difference can have a dramatic impact on your photo. Let’s say you’re taking an image of a waterfall. A shutter speed of 1 second will be completely different from 1/800 of a second. A shutter speed of 1 second will look like the water is smoothly flowing, making it appear blurry. A shutter speed…

  • New Technique Takes Cues from Astronomy and Ophthalmology to Sharpen Microscope Images

    Science News Desk
    13 Apr 2014 | 11:22 am
    The complexity of biology can befuddle even the most sophisticated light microscopes. Biological samples bend light in unpredictable ways, returning difficult-to-interpret information to the microscope and distorting the resulting image. New imaging technology developed at the Howard Hughes Medical Institute's Janelia Farm Research Campus rapidly corrects for these distortions and sharpens high-resolution images over large volumes of tissue.read more

    Robert Freeman

    A new study using a photosensitive molecule, azobenzene and carbon nanotubes demonstrates the feasibility of developing solar thermal fuels with significantly increased energy storage capacity. There is a global race to find the most cost efficient, green energy alternatives to fossil fuels. Solar energy is an attractive pollution-free option.  However as the intensity of sunlight is affected by factors such as time of the day and weather, there is a need to develop efficient energy storage devices for uninterrupted energy supply.read more

    New research from North Carolina State University and UNC-Chapel Hill reveals that energy is transferred more efficiently inside of complex, three-dimensional organic solar cells when the donor molecules align face-on, rather than edge-on, relative to the acceptor. This finding may aid in the design and manufacture of more efficient and economically viable organic solar cell technology.read more

Traffic and one-way streets force you to take some odd turns, and for a while you lose sight of your landmarks.

    I can already hear the YouTube mob grabbing their pitchforks and lighting their torches, so I’ll start by giving YouTube its deserved praise. There’s no doubt that it is the internet’s go-to big dog of video hosting. It also doesn’t hurt to be backed by a modest little corporation named Google . Over 1 billion unique visitors and 6 billion hours of video watched every month make Youtube the people’s champion. But the defending champ has a top contender by the name of Vimeo gaining quickly on its heels. Founded in 2004 (a year before YouTube) Vimeo hasn’t seen the meteoric rise…

    I’m no visionary, but at some point the thought did cross my mind, “This is an industry filled with people that look at things in an atypical way.” Now, if I wanted to be one of them, how could I prove that I too had the capacity for this? It wasn’t enough to be educated, qualified, or knowledgeable, I had to demonstrate my unique ability to not just think outside the box, but live outside its walls as well. I’d spent months sitting at the library filling out dozens upon dozens of job applications, scouring LinkedIn for open positions, and occasionally being distracted by Buzzfeed.

    16 Apr 2014 | 9:00 pm
    Because China relies so heavily on coal for power, electric vehicles aren’t necessarily an improvement over gasoline-powered cars.Sales of electric vehicles in China, the world’s largest auto market, have been minuscule despite government incentives meant to put five million of the cars on the nation’s roads by 2020. Tesla Motors hopes to begin changing that as it makes its first deliveries of Model S sedans to customers in China this month.

    17 Apr 2014 | 2:30 am
    Calcium is better known as an element that builds and maintains strong bones and consuming milk and milk products is regarded as a good way of getting dietary intake of this nutrient as per the 2010 Dietary Guidelines for Americans from the US Department of Agriculture and the Department of Health and Human Services. It is often recommended to drink milk in the adolescence period to achieve optimum bone mass which will help to reduce the risk of hip fractures later in life. However, researchers at the Brigham and Women’s Hospital found this widespread notion to be wrong in the case of…
  • ICD 10 Implementation Delayed Until 2015

    Julie Clements
    14 Apr 2014 | 1:13 am
    For the last six months, there was a big push for ICD-10. However, the implementation of ICD-10 has now been delayed until October 1, 2015. The news is a big relief for many healthcare providers who were not ready to implement the new coding standards. On March 31, the US Senate approved H.R. 4302, the legislation which delays the ICD-10 implementation deadline by one year to October 1, 2015. The Senate voted 64-35 to pass the bill. President Barack Obama has signed into law “doc fix” legislation (HR 4302) to delay scheduled cuts to Medicare physician reimbursement rates. Along…

    The 2012-2013 flu season was quite harsh with 700 cases of flu reported at Boston and led to the declaration of public-health emergency there. The 2014 FluView report published by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) indicated that the influenza activity decreased during week 8 (February 16-22), but remained prominent in the United States. However, researchers from Columbia University and the University of Cologne figured out a formula to predict the evolution of influenza for the next year as per a study published in Nature, an international weekly journal of science.

  • Obesity Rates of American Children Plummeted to 43%, Says the Centers for Disease Control (CDC)

    7 Apr 2014 | 10:39 pm

The rates were computed on the basis of CDC’s National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES) data. The CDC director said that this report came upon the heels of previous CDC data that showed a significant decrease in obesity prevalence among low-income children in the age group 2 to 4 years, who had been participating in federal nutrition programs.

    Orthopedic practices face the challenge of inappropriate use of codes labeled ‘unspecified’ while coding traumatic fractures for ICD-10, since this medical coding system differentiates traumatic fractures from pathological fractures. The American Health Information Management Association (AHIMA) has already insisted that the healthcare practitioners should focus on their documentation to identify the gaps that need to be filled before the ICD-10 implementation on October 1, 2014. In such a scenario, it is quite imperative for orthopedic practices to understand the ICD-10…

    You may have seen Pantheon, the newest creation out of MIT Media Lab’s Macro Connection group, in the news lately. With the ability to rank globally famous people—Aristotle currently sits at number one—the platform has garnered a lot of attention. These rankings, however, are just one part of Pantheon. A concept developed by Macro Connection’s Principal Investigator, César A.

    Some people are able to open up a graphic editor and produce stunning original artwork for their web sites. I'm not one of those people. For me it's usually a case of searching the net in the hope of finding the perfect graphic that exactly matches my needs. Usually I fail in that search and end up with the closest thing I can find.

Every Joomla user knows that they can use the awesome Akeeba Backup to take a backup of their site quickly and easily and even automate the process so that the backup is taken daily, with the backup archives stored in a secure off-site location. When you went to backup your WordPress, phpBB, PrestaShop or other php/sql web site were you jealous? Did you sit there wondering why it was so much harder to backup your WordPress web site?

  • Open Source is an ancient concept

    27 Mar 2014 | 12:12 pm
    There is nothing new about Open Source. We might like to think that it is a concept introduced in the last 50 years but in fact the origins of sharing knowledge date back to some of the oldest recordings of written works.  Doing some reading recently I came across the following text translated from a compilation of the ethical teachings and maxims (Pirkei Avot of the Rabbis (jewish teachers) written down almost 2000 years ago. Free-culture and open source licensing does not do away with proprietary ownership of others. Rather, it  declares the intention of an owner to share. Rabbinic…

I admit I was confused at first regarding the version of the LGPL that was to be used as it was missing from the original post by Paul but once that was clarified I did update my post. However I believe there is one "confusion" that still can be resolved. What is the Framework? It's software that can be used to build a wide variety of web and non-web applications. Is that a good thing? Of course it is and it's great that we have people who want to work…

Some people think it’s brilliant, and they couldn’t possibly live without it, while others refuse to use them altogether.

It has had a good run, guiding us around the country for a decade or more, but with the increasing popularity of smart phones and the sat nav apps that are available, could this be the end? The answer is simply no, this is not the end of sat nav as we know it. Even though smart phones have come on leaps over the last few years, they haven’t got it quite right when it comes to using the device for satellite navigation. This may be because the sat nav is a specialised device. It…

    4 Apr 2014 | 9:17 pm
    Today, the Oval Office is closed. 10 Downing Street has declared intergalactic war against Naboo (formerly known as the Republic of Cameroon). Every Prime Minister, President, Supreme Leader, Head of State, Chief Executive and Premier has been assigned a role. George Lucas stands by to oversee (though the rights now belong to Disney) the process of finalising the cast. Our world has become its own insular Death Star with rebel bases planted everywhere. But now, this metaphor has become literal for today only. Every PC springs into life, waiting for the signal. The first blaster is fired.

Vehicles of words             sift forwards to complain        at the curbside. But the cars,     vans, lorries, taxis (and on) keep on, keep going until the bikes lights cannot be seen.

    By Marilyn Craig and Mary Ludloff We read an interesting paper and post about Google Flu Trends (GFT) and its foibles last week.

After all, our tool (and others like it) makes it easy and even fun for analytics junkies to use all those available zettabytes of data and answer questions that they’ve long…

    By Marilyn Craig A recent conversation with a client reminded me that no matter how crazy and exciting the Big Data world gets, it is still critical to understand what your goals are and where you are in the process of reaching those goals. Having a good foundation in “what’s important” is critical before you jump into the wild world of Big Analytics. For example, in big data (well, actually all data but I digress) “Reporting” and “Analytics” are very different functions. But I often find our customers and prospects grappling with how to distinguish one from the other and as a…

In fact, way back in September 2011 when Terence and I published our book on Privacy and Big Data, I was far more optimistic than he was on the future of privacy—of course, it’s easy to sound optimistic when your co-author states that privacy is dead. (And yes, we are still working on our book update but we do have day jobs and a significant release in the works so it is slow going but going it is.) At that time, those in the “digital privacy know” characterized our book as a decent overview. Our intent at the…

The storm was estimated to have sustaining winds of 195 mph with winds gusts up to 235 mph. It is believed to be one of the strongest storms ever recorded. For those of us who have lived through typhoons and hurricanes (myself included) and felt the power of those storms, what we saw was nothing compared to what the Philippines endured. The death toll is now estimated to be above 10,000 and climbing and the devastation it left is likened to the destruction wrought by the 2004 Indian…

  • [MODIFIED] IrfanView - Disable Most Recently Used Files and Folders for Privacy

    16 Apr 2014 | 1:25 pm
    Increase your privacy by making IrfanView forget the most recently accessed files and folders.For convenience, IrfanView offers an "Open Recent files" option in its "File" menu, providing you quick access to files you have opened lately. Also, when opening and saving files, IrfanView shows the most recently-access folders as well as commonly-accessed areas such as your Desktop, My Pictures, Favorites, etc.While these features may be useful if you frequently modify the same files, or images in a particular file location, having this information readily available may violate your privacy if…

    If you often receive addresses via Google Gmail, why copy and paste them into a Google Maps window?Depending on your electronic mail habits, you may have contacts that often need to send addresses to your Gmail account. When you get these addresses and need to view them on a map, would you rather A) copy and paste the addresses into a new browser tab running Google Maps, or B) have Gmail show the maps automatically inside the e-mail messages?If your answer is "B", there is a Google Labs extension that will do just that, and it's easy to set up:...Read more at MalekTips.

  • Vieather updated for translucent Live tiles on Windows Phone 8.1, weather never looked so good

    Sam Sabri
    17 Apr 2014 | 10:16 pm
    We are absolutely loving the translucent Live tiles in Windows Phone 8.1. Don’t worry, we’re just as confused by how much we love this new feature. It’s one thing to see it leaked videos recorded with a potato, but it’s another to actually use it. We’re not alone, a lot of you seem to love the feature and developers are moving to support the translucent tiles in their own applications. Looking for a weather app that plays by the translucent rules? Then check out the updated version of Vieather.
  • Microsoft: Over 5 million Xbox One consoles sold since launch

    Sam Sabri
    17 Apr 2014 | 4:50 pm
    It’s been awhile since Microsoft shared any official stats on how the Xbox One is faring. The last set of solid numbers we had was from mid-January when the Xbox One moved 908,000 units in December. We knew March was going to be a big month with the launch of Titanfall. We now have the latest numbers from the NPD and you’re probably wondering how the Xbox One is doing since launching last November. According to Microsoft, over 5 million Xbox One consoles have been sold to retailers since launch. For comparison, the PlayStation 4 has moved over 7 million units. More numbers after the…
  • Don’t blame Cortana, disable 3rd party alarms before setting hers

    Sam Sabri
    17 Apr 2014 | 4:18 pm
    Yesterday we posted about folks being unable to set an alarm using Cortana. They’d try and meet error code 8000ffff. It undoubtedly made a lot of you frustrated as you played around with Cortana. Soft resets and hard resets didn’t fix the problem. What was going on? It’s most likely third-party alarm apps messing with Cortana on Windows Phone 8.1. Details below.
  • Sorry kids, you must be thirteen or older to use Cortana

    Sam Sabri
    17 Apr 2014 | 3:49 pm
    Windows Phone 8.1 brings a handful of new features to the mix. Cortana and the new Notification center obviously steal the headlines, but other features like Battery Saver, Wi-Fi Sense, Start backgrounds and more all add up to create a wonderful update. Unfortunately, not everyone can enjoy these features. Cortana is currently only available as a beta to those in the United States, though you can get it to work internationally with a few tricks. And it looks like Cortana is also only available to those over a certain age. Seriously.

For instance, Twitter. The app works quite well on 8.1, but the ability to Share to the app has disappeared and it doesn’t fully leverage the capabilities of the 8.1 operating system. The beta build of the app is circulating in an open beta, though it's sure to be closed now that it has leaked publicly. Regardless, here’s what to expect in Twitter…

    Most people don’t pay attention to ads anymore. People now expect ads to actually speak to them—to connect to their hopes and dreams, to flip their thinking in unexpected ways and to reflect the world they would like to see around them. Advertising can offer this because, every once in a while, you will  find yourself cracking up or wanting more after watching a commercial that connects with you. These are some of the most creative ads worth sharing.1. A game of social thrones A rendition of the iconic opening titles of HBO’s Game of Thrones by Hootsuite.2. Hands by…

    When purchasing a new printer for your business, the price of equipment and its operational costs are understandably the main focus of most buyers. However, in the bid to find a cost-efficient printer, its useful, technical functions are often overlooked.One of the most important yet neglected features is printer memory, so here are the questions you should be asking when purchasing your equipment:What is Printer Memory?Almost every printer has a built-in memory (RAM) which it uses to store the print jobs that are sent to it.

    Lloyd Marino

    As a lifelong technologist I am amazed at how fast my industry is changing.  When I first got into the business, the cloud didn’t exist.  Nobody had ever conceived of the Bring Your Own Device (“BYOD”) idea, because devices didn’t really exist, either.  Mobile first wasn’t even a theory; it was grounds for psychiatric evaluation.  When we saw people on a car phone we thought they operated at the very top of the food chain.  Our old views on technology have changed radically in the past few decades, but I don’t think we’ve come far enough, fast enough.

  • The Challenges of Milestone Funding

    David Ehrenberg
    15 Apr 2014 | 12:02 pm
    As all of our clients (and anyone who’s ever spoken to me!) knows, I am a huge, huge fan of milestone funding. That is, when you’re looking for investment capital, you first identify your milestones and then calculate how much capital you will need to raise in order to achieve these milestones. This is the best way to determine and articulate how much capital you will need. Investors like milestone funding as it makes clear how much money you will need and what you’re going to do with it (which inspires confidence that they will see a return on their investment). It also helps to keep…

And then a few hours later my son takes it all apart to create something new, much to my chagrin (which explains why I liked the LEGOMovie so much).Given my renewed interest in…

    The FDA recently announced their proposal to change the format of the Nutrition Facts label. This is the first change to the label originally designed and introduced in 1993. So, why the change after 20+ years? Well, it’s being proposed for a number of reasons, not the least of which is the link to the obesity epidemic in the United States. If a nutrition facts panel is clearer, easier to read, and more focused on the relevant information to equip consumers to make informed choices, the hope is that more and more people will use the nutrition facts label to guide their purchase decisions.

In a nutshell, its an encryption flaw that will enable someone to secretly gain access to compromised servers of your most used or visited sites and have access to personal account information such as passwords, personal account details, etc. The bug has already been patched, but the scary thing is, its been around for awhile (like December 2011).

    "Video games ruined my life. Good thing I have extra lives." If you're a passionate gamer like me, then you've probably heard this before. On this matter, the other days I was browsing through some reviews to find out more about my latest favorite game, Dark Souls 2 which by the way, it rocks. But, I'm not making video games reviews here. The thing is that while checking the Gamespot review, I noticed a very nice and original loader somehow inspired by the above tagline.

    With the on-going debacle about the Kangkung saga dying down, I thought it would be a good opportunity to write specifically about internet censorship and its implications to ordinary Malaysian citizens. As you may well know, many Malaysia Netizens reported of difficulty accessing one particular post of the BBC website that dealt with the Kangkung issues, causing many to cite that Telekom Malaysia was actually censoring the internet–but what does internet censorship actually entail for Malaysia?

    As our thoughts and prayers remain with the passengers of flight MH370, I think that as the search enters its 3rd week, it’s a good time to reflect on just how much our perception of aviation technology has changed as a result. It’s quite important to differentiate between what REALLY happens and what we THINK happens, an in some cases the gulf is so large, that our perception of what happens borders on science-fiction. Take for example, our perception of the US Secret Service. Years of Hollywood movies have led us to believe that if anyone even thought about firing a weapon at…

A lot of people seem to think it depends where you are, if you’re in the US, it’s rao-ter, and if you’re in the UK it’s root-er. But the internet is global, it doesn’t care where you are, it doesn’t matter which culture you’re from, there can only be one answer to this question, and it must be location agnostic. So here’s the answer it’s RAO-TER, and here’s why. If you find it you get to name it In Science and Engineering…

  • How to Troubleshoot Problems in Windows 8.1

    Aseem Kishore
    28 Mar 2014 | 3:55 am
    Today’s article is a quick tip on how to troubleshoot problems in Windows 8.1, which you will most definitely run into using Microsoft’s shiny new OS. However, most problems don’t require booting into safe mode or following a 10 step guide to fixing WiFi problems. Microsoft has also gotten smarter and included a lot of tools and help guides in the OS itself to diagnose and fix problems. I’ve found that teaching my clients how to use these built-in tools saves me a lot of time because they are able to fix problems in Windows 8.1 themselves. In this article, I’m…
  • The Best Free Apps for a New iPhone

    When I first got up new iPhone 5S (thanks to my parents), I instantly went to the app store and starting downloading apps! Having a smartphone and not using apps is like having a computer and only using it to browse the Internet. If you have an iPhone, you’re also lucky because the Apple app store is still better than the Android app store in terms of number of apps and quality of apps, in my opinion. So what are the best free apps to download for your new iPhone right away? Well, there are a bunch! Obviously, everyone will have their preferences, so I’ll try to keep this list…

    Just about everybody who has a laptop has probably connected to several different wireless networks over the course of time. I tend to travel a lot and take my laptop with me everywhere I go, so I literally have over a hundred wireless networks stored on my Mac. This is great because I can easily connect to those wireless networks whenever I’m in range again, even if it’s 6 months later. However, there are times when I need to know the password for the Wifi network, usually because I have to connect another device like my iPhone or iPad to the network. There is no way I ever…

    20 Mar 2014 | 4:01 am
    If you’ve been using Windows 8 as your main PC, you have probably noticed the vastly upgraded performance and user interface when copying files. Finally, Microsoft decided to revamp some of the core functions of the OS, which makes using Windows 8 so much better than Windows 7…sometimes. Unfortunately, even with all the great new security and updates to core features, Windows 8 has been hampered by the dual desktop and Start Screen interfaces. I personally switched back to Windows 7 because I find the Start Screen and lack of the Start button frustrating. However, back on Windows…

    Aseem Kishore
    17 Mar 2014 | 2:45 am
    Windows 8 and 8.1 are controversial because they changed the way Windows fundamentally worked and with every subsequent release, they backtrack halfway. For example, Windows 8.1 allowed users to boot directly to the desktop, but you had to manually change this setting yourself. In the next update coming soon called Windows 8.1 Update 1, any non-touch device will automatically boot to the desktop. They are also going to be adding a power button to the start screen so you don’t have to go to the Charms menu anymore. Anyway, it’s just a big mess of two worlds and it keeps changing…

  • Brooks-Range replaces tent poles with internal cords to save weight

    17 Apr 2014 | 7:14 pm
    Tent poles have to be one of the most hated types of sports equipment in the world. They represent the long, difficult process of setting that huge, overly complex base camp tent up at quarter to midnight. If you're really unlucky, they get twisted and knotted into an unkempt pile or break in the middle of the night. One tent manufacturer has identified an interesting way of eliminating a few of those poles, trading the multi-prong tent pole system for a tent body with integrated elastic cord in a design aimed at saving weight and hassle. ..

    One of the biggest mistakes I think coders make is getting so caught up in the technical side of their coding career that they lose track of all the other (often MORE important) aspects of being a successful coder. I know I did. In fact, for the longest time I held this completely erroneous belief that talent trumped everything. That all I needed to worry about was being talented and I’d be good. WRONG! Because of that I couldn’t figure out why I started to lose out on client after client and constantly get underbid by coders who I KNEW were less talented. Couldn’t my…

    You have probably noticed different services on the Internet which automatically know roughly where you are in the world. From video and video stream services to online stores, these services use a technique, called IP geolocation, which matches your approximate physical location with the IP address you are using. Whenever you connect to the Internet, your device is assigned an IP address from a pool of addresses which are allocated to the different telecommunication companies. The way these addresses work can be quite complicated, but because they are assigned in blocks, it is possible to…

    Telling science stories often involves explaining complex interactions between a cast of molecular “actors”, on a set smaller than the wavelength of light, so scientists are increasingly using animation to communicate such stories to the broader public. This is part of a global shift in how knowledge is communicated, reflected in the rapid rise of online video content – more than 1 billion people view videos on YouTube each month. It is important that key scientific discoveries and insights are communicated well in this new medium, especially when they can lead to improved health…

Already there have been problems on both days of operation, with the vehicle reaching its maximum operating depth of 4,500m. What data the search authorities were able to download from the vehicle’s first mission – which lasted only six hours – has been…

Back in such a big way that apparently many New York hipsters are paying north of US$8,000 for “facial hair transplants” to embellish their patchy beards. While the hipster subculture appears to be ground zero for the latest swerve toward beardedness, men who would not be seen dead in skinny jeans or thrift-shop cardigans are letting the whiskers grow in a way that hasn’t been fashionable for decades.

    How confident are you that the man you call dad is really your biological father? If you believe some of the most commonly-quoted figures, you could be forgiven for not being very confident at all. But how accurate are those figures? Questions of paternity are built over the deepest well of human insecurity, for children searching to know who they are, for fathers wanting to know whose kids they are raising and for mothers uncertain about the strength of the bonds holding their families together.

The C720P is the lover you keep in the dark, for the benefits, but which you wouldn't be seen with in the daylight. Performance and battery life are wow-worthy. But the plastic exterior looks and feels cheap, and the touchscreen is too dim -- well, for my tastes.

Il device può essere acquistato al prezzo di 579 euro in tutte le colorazioni previste quali bianco, rosso, giallo, azzurro e verde. La disponibilità attualmente è limitata solo agli Apple Store (sia fisici sia online) ma nel breve periodo dovrebbe poter essere acquistabile anche nei negozi delle catene di…
  • Come eseguire la scansione e riparare un computer infetto dall’esterno di Windows

    Amaiyume
    17 Apr 2014 | 7:22 am
    Se un sistema Windows è stato gravemente infettato da malware, avviare un antivirus da dentro Windows spesso non aiuta. Si possono trovare ed eliminare i malware più facilmente eseguendo una scansione dall’esterno di Windows. Il malware può nascondersi su un sistema infetto, evitando ogni tentativo di rilevamento. Altri malware possono addirittura tentare di combattere il software antivirus, impedendogli la scansione o la corretta installazione. Ecco perché è importante prevenire i malware prima che riescano a infettare il sistema.   Avvio in modalità provvisoria   La…

  • Il Samsung Galaxy S5 è molto difficile da riparare

    Martina Oliva
    16 Apr 2014 | 11:00 pm
    Il Samsung Galaxy S5 è il nuovo smartphone top di gamma lanciato dalla sudcoreana nel corso degli ultimi giorni. Si tratta di un dispositivo dotato di un comparto hardware tanto avanzato quanto performante ma che, a quanto pare, risulta molto difficile da smontare. A render nota la cosa sono stati i ragazzi di iFixit che, per l’appunto, si sono adoperati nell’esecuzione del terdown del Samsung Galaxy S5. Lo smartphone ha ricevuto un voto di riparabilità di 5 su 10, un punteggio questo che risulta di gran lunga inferiore rispetto a quello raggiunto dai modelli precedenti. I…

  • On That "DevOps is Killing the Developer" Post

    Chris Mahns
    15 Apr 2014 | 9:23 pm
    DevOps is Different Things to Different People Sometimes, it seems like the worst term to come out the DevOps movement was "DevOps". After all these years, it still seems to have different meanings to different people. Case in point, an absolutely wonderful post recently from Jeff Knupp: How DevOps is Killing the Developer. If you haven't already done so, give it a read. In the article, Mr. Knupp provides what I personally thought was a pretty good definition of what "DevOps" is (or was?): "DevOps" is meant to denote a close collaboration and cross-pollination between what were previously…
  • iControl Perl - Authentication

    Chris Mahns
    3 Mar 2014 | 6:30 am
    Another thing that each of these iControl Perl scripts is going to need to do is to authenticate with the BigIP ltm. Since you are connecting using https, you are going to be using Basic Authentication. Below are a couple of options for setting authentication up. The first method, which seems to be the most popular, is to insert the userid and password into SOAP::Lite's get_basic_credentials method, which would get set prior to creating your soap request. For example: my $host = "the_bigip_hostname_or_ipaddr" my $port = "443"; my $uid = "some_user_id"; my $pwd = "some_password"; sub…
  • iControl Perl - User Accounts

    Chris Mahns
    24 Feb 2014 | 7:00 am
    Figuring out what kind of user account your iControl script is going to require is about as simple as figuring out what rights a regular user is going to need. If your script is simply echoing back statistics or pools or pool member stats or virtual server configurations, you don't need a user account that is going to have Administrative rights to your BigIP. You can get away with "Auditor" rights for these types of scripts. They also will not require any special terminal rights since they are going to be executed remotely. If your script is going to enable or disable nodes or pool members,…
  • iControl Perl - Getting Started

    Chris Mahns
    21 Feb 2014 | 6:45 pm
    After having the BigIP's in house for a while now and spending a bit of time writing iRules, I felt like it was time to give iControl a try. My intentions were noble: Kill two birds with one stone by learning iControl and Java. Something about it keeps drawing me back to Perl though. It is hard to explain but, for me, Perl is like a sketchpad. I can scribble away at a script until I have something that works. It might not be museum-worthy but it still looks good and conveys what I'm trying to do rather nicely. I like the sigils, too. Back when I was a kid, I was a huge comics fan and I loved…

    The next big thing in the world of smartphones is about to happen. When we speak of this we of course refer to the Samsung Galaxy S6, the future phenomenon from the house of the Korean giant, which is expected to make headlines worldwide. The next flagship device from Samsung could create greater competition with other phones, so aspects other than the specifications of the  Sony Xperia Z3 and iPhone 6 will have to be worked on by the respective rival companies, meaning they would have to step up their game to match the hype created around the S6.Read more »

    Since launching their first cloud offering in 2006, Amazon has paid surprisingly little attention to its competitors. While Marc Benioff was shouting “cloud computing” from the Salesforce mountain top in 2007, Amazon seemed not to have noticed. When Microsoft started aggressively marketing Azure in 2009, Amazon reacted as though it was in a distant market. When Rackspace sought to disrupt AWS with OpenStack in 2010, there wasn’t even a tremor in Seattle. And for those of us in Las Vegas for re:Invent last fall, the plastering of every city bus with IBM SmartCloud ads barely warranted an…

    My first experience managing a DevOps team came in 2010 when I took the VPE role at Sonian. While on the surface my new team looked like traditional system administrators, they shared three traits that were new to me in operations: a commitment to agile, a hybrid of software development & operations skills, and a focus on infrastructure as code. I instantly decided to embrace the emerging term DevOps, and supported the team on its way to some great successes (blogged about in a post called The Virtuous Cycle of DevOps). But four years later, I feel the need to say what no one else seems…

In those early days, my choices seemed to have little downside, and other than raising an occasional eyebrow at @dhh tweets, I was generally happy with Rails. My first doubts started to arise when I set out to hire a couple Rails engineers. To my surprise, while Boston has…

It comes as no surprise that Java is the most common, since the language is nearing the drinking age in Massachusetts, and you'd have to be living in the Sumner Tunnel the past two decades to have not used it in some capacity. I will confess JavaScript came as a bit of a surprise, although GitHub data supports this. PHP is a little surprising to me…
