    21 Aug 2014 | 2:03 pm
    If you ever had a pet lizard as a child, it was quite likely a green anole. As is the case with other lizards, they have the ability to break off their own tail when attacked by a predator, and then regrow it. Scientists from Arizona State University recently announced that they have cracked the code regarding that tail regrowth process, and are now hoping that it could be applied to the field of regenerative medicine. ..

    If you work somewhere such as a factory, warehouse, or restaurant kitchen, then you'll know how tiring it can be to stand for several hours at a time. Unfortunately, however, it isn't always practical or safe to carry a stool around with you wherever you go. That's why Swiss start-up noonee has created the Chairless Chair.

    Sure, some day Google may well drive us around. But today we drive ourselves, assisted by roughly 60 to 100 sensors per car, a number expected to mushroom to 200 per car by 2020, or 22 billion in-vehicle sensors worldwide. While all this data has the potential to become a privacy nightmare, it also presents a quandary for developers. Our cars are already eminently hackable in the worst sense of that word, as researchers at Black Hat recently presented. But they're also hackable in the positive sense, as Carvoyant, a Florida-based startup aims to show. See also: Volkswagen: "The Car…

    It’s still impossible to use mobile applications the same way people use Web browsers. Apps each live in their own silos, and unless they’re produced by the same company—like Foursquare and Swarm—bouncing between them the way we bounce between browser tabs can be challenging.Facebook has been pushing hard to get mobile-app developers to adopt App Links, its open source software that facilitates deep-links (think URLs that point directly to information inside apps). If it succeeds, links inside apps will no longer take you to mobile Web browsers if another app is a more relevant…

Normally, such events involve driving new cars.

    They weren’t the best thing he ever did, or the one which we’ll cherish the most. But with the sad news of the passing of James Garner, it’s worth pausing to remember the commercials he did in the late 1970s and early 1980s for Polaroid. And–this being Technologizer–it’s how we’ll memorialize him here. When it came to celebrity spokespeople, Polaroid wasn’t stingy: Laurence Olivier did the first ad for the SX-70 camera, and Danny Kaye touted the ill-fated Polavision instant movie system. Hiring James Garner was a similarly classy move, but the…

    Ben Bajarin
    20 Aug 2014 | 1:49 am
    I’ve spent the past week with a Surface Pro 3. I’ve used every previous version of Surface and given what the promise of a 2-in-1 PC was supposed to be, the Surface Pro 3 is the closest yet to fulfilling that promise. I was very harsh on the original Surface and, while my overall thesis (which we will get to) on the 2-in-1 PC form factor has not changed, my stance on the Surface itself has softened. Don’t consider this a review of the Surface Pro 3. There are many good reviews of the Surface Pro 3 and serious buyers should read those as well. I’d like to do a more…

  • Device Usage Diversity

    Bob O'Donnell
    19 Aug 2014 | 1:42 am
    When we think about how devices and their usage are evolving, it’s tempting to talk about the rise of one versus the decline of another. But the reality is much more complex. What’s actually happening is that people are acquiring more devices, while simultaneously engaging in more activities, and then splitting those activities across their growing cadre of devices. Things used to be simple. People created documents on PCs, made phone calls on mobile phones and watched live broadcasts on TVs. Sure, there were a few outlying examples, but even just 10 years ago (heck, 5 years ago for many…

    10 Aug 2014 | 10:03 pm
    By: Hillel Fuld As you might have noticed, I have been posting interviews with some of the shakers of the Web and tech industries. This is something I started doing a while back. While these interviews have been a great experience for me to learn from some of the biggest names out there, the main advantage has been the relationships I have created. I love the fact that I can DM Alyssa Milano or joke around with Robert Scoble. I have spoken to Mike McCue on the phone (he is just as nice as online), and I am always learning from Chris Pirillo. Why am I telling you this? Because, as awesome as…

    By: Hillel Fuld (@hilzfuld) As you might have noticed, I like to interview people. Really important people. I literally made myself a list of individuals that I would one day, somehow, hope to have the privilege to interview. Some of them were a little out there. You know, people like the actress Alyssa Milano (remember Who’s the Boss?

Not very often… But then there are some sources that you just know are reliable. Marques Brownlee is one such source. And this video of the iPhone 6 display is obviously legit so can we just put that behind us and discuss the topic at hand? Great.

Yes, I am fully aware that some of the newer Android flagship devices are more impressive than the iPhone, in both personality and looks, but for me, despite many MANY attempts, I stuck with iPhone. I have played with the Nexus 5. I have even played with the HTC M8.

I hope you change your mind after hearing me out. Allow me to begin my opening statements with a question. What, in your opinion, is the difference between sales and marketing?

Well, what remains of Jake Gyllenhaal, anyway, who left a whole lot of himself on a treadmill somewhere to create this dark, morally compromised turn as one of the shady operators who chases ambulances and cop cars to shoot a little footage, which he then sells to the local TV news.

    The execution of American journalist James Foley at the hands of Islamic militants, gruesomely displayed in a video that surfaced this week, was a palpable reminder of the shadowy business of kidnappings in the Middle East. For years, extremist groups like the Islamic State, which claimed responsibility for Foley's murder, have plied this grisly trade. In the process, they have earned millions of dollars in ransoms, further fueling the radicals' rise.

  • Attacks On Anonymity Conflate Anonymous Speech With Trollish Behavior

    Mike Masnick
    21 Aug 2014 | 3:42 pm
    Every so often this sort of thing pops up where people suddenly think it's a good idea to "end anonymity" online. We've discussed this in the past, and it's always the same basic argument -- one that conflates anonymity with "bad things" that people say online. There are all sorts of problems with this, but it starts with this: anonymity also allows people to reveal all sorts of good things online as well and plenty of people say and do horrible things with their names attached. And yet... the arguments keep on coming. Here, for example, is law professor Danielle Keats Citron in the NY Times…
  • Why Internet Access Monopolies Harm Innovation

    William Conlow
    21 Aug 2014 | 2:06 pm
    When antitrust stories make headlines—as the Comcast-Time Warner Cable merger has—even well-intentioned analysis often confuses harm to competitors with harm to competition. Viewing antitrust law through a "competition" lens, as opposed to a "competitors" lens, is not intuitive: consumers are harmed not by being denied access to existing services, but by being denied new ones. In antitrust law there is a debate, known as Schumpeter-Arrow—based on the initial intellectual adversaries, Joseph Schumpeter and Kenneth Arrow—which concerns whether monopoly power leads to innovation. On the…
  • Getty Threatens The Wrong IP Law Firm In Its Copyright Trolling Efforts

    Image licensing giant Getty Images has quite a reputation for being something of a copyright maximalist and occasional copyright troll. The company has been known to blast out threat letters and lawsuits not unlike some more notorious copyright trolls. And that's true even as the company just recently lost a copyright infringement suit in which Getty helped in the infringement. A few months ago, we had told you about Getty starting a new program in which it was making many of its images free to embed, saying that it was "better to compete" that way on the internet, rather than trying to…

    21 Aug 2014 | 11:41 am
    Over the last few months, there's been tremendous press attention paid to a little nothing of a company called Rightscorp, which has basically tried to become the friendlier face of copyright trolling: signing up copyright holders, sending threat letters to ISPs, hoping those ISPs forward the threats to subscribers, and demanding much smaller fees than traditional copyright trolls (usually around $20). The idea is by being (just slightly) friendlier, and keeping the fees much lower, they might be able to "make it up in volume." The company has been subject to big profiles in Ars Technica,…

Estimote has put a lot of time and work into expediting our connected future via its beacon hardware and developer platform, and now the startup… Read More

  • Phil Spencer Refutes Blizzards Claims Of Forced 1080p Support

    21 Aug 2014 | 5:17 pm
    We’re sure many Xbox One gamers can appreciate Blizzard’s decision to bump the resolution of Diablo 3 on the console to 1080p. Previously it was at 900p and while we’re not sure if many gamers would have noticed the difference, it’s still a welcome upgrade nonetheless. Now according to Blizzard, it was at Microsoft’s insistence that they decided to upgrade the game to 1080p. However in a recent tweet by Microsoft’s head of Xbox, Phil Spencer, that wasn’t necessarily the case. Spencer states that Microsoft did not force anyone to ship their games at 1080. Instead he said, “We…

    So we know that the Microsoft Xbox One console will be making its way to China this September, with pre-orders already kicking off, but exactly how many units of the Xbox One does Microsoft expect to sell in China? While we’re not sure how successful the console will be in the country, PCWorld reports that according to Microsoft’s Chinese partner, BesTV, the Redmond company will have 5 million units on sale at launch. We should note that these are the number of consoles Microsoft will be making available. As to whether Microsoft will sell all of them, half of them, or none of them is…

    If you’re the type that loves his/her tech leaks, then you might have heard how the famed @evleaks has recently announced his retirement. However perhaps as a final parting gift, @evleaks posted one last leak, and this time it is that of the upcoming Moto X+1, the successor to last year’s Moto X. These are probably some of the cleanest images we’ve seen of the alleged handset to date, although once again we can’t be sure of their authenticity, but given @evleaks’ reputation and track record, there is a good chance that the images could be the real deal.

    It can be said without a doubt that the current console war is being won by Sony. The company has already sold over 10 million units to consumers around the world, significantly more than Microsoft has managed to ship to retailers. Sony Worldwide Studios head Shuhei Yoshida hinted that Sony really doesn’t know why its latest console is selling so well. Data from Nielsen suggests that switchers from other consoles like Wii or Xbox might have something to with this. A study conducted by Nielsen back in April shows that 31 percent of all PlayStation 4 owners didn’t own a Sony…

    21 Aug 2014 | 4:23 pm
    After Barnes & Noble bled serious cash trying to create its own Nook e-reading tablets to compete with Amazon's Fire and Apple's iPad -- eventually, scrapping most of the Nook-building unit -- I figured it was pretty much down for the count. The announcement in June of its deal to let Samsung give select tablets the "Nook" brand seemed more like a cry for help them a business decision that had much chance of success. I have to admit that I utterly missed how important this little summertime move really was, and will prove to be.
  • Is Open Source an Open Invitation to Hack Webmail Encryption?

    John P. Mello Jr.
    21 Aug 2014 | 11:21 am
    In a move influenced by Edward Snowden's revelations about the NSA's email snooping, Yahoo and Google last week announced that they were cooperating on end-to-end encrypting their webmail products. "We will release source code this fall so that the open source community can help us refine the experience and hunt for bugs," said Yahoo CISO John Stamos. While the open source approach has proven its value over and over again, the idea of opening up the code for security features to anyone with eyeballs still creates anxiety in some circles.

    One of the most troubling issues with home security and remote-monitoring products is the complexity and cost to set them up. Blink, a new Kickstarter project, is different. It promises to be astoundingly easy, and it's inexpensive, too. Backers can get a simple remote motion detection and video camera unit for just $69 -- or two for $119. Better yet, no yearly or monthly subscription service is required to use Blink. And the batteries last a year. Amazingly sensible. So far, nearly 4,700 project backers agree, having pledged $684,888.

    The SparkyLinux GameOver 3.4 Edition may be one of the best Linux distros catering to game players you will find. It is a full-service specialty Linux OS with a focus on gaming. Linux distro developers usually do one of two things about games. One, they provide none or only a few low-impact card and puzzle titles. Two, they build in links to the PlayOnLinux and Steam websites. Historically, few Linux distros have catered to serious game playing. The few that did are mostly now discontinued or inactive.

    Barnes & Noble and Samsung on Wednesday jointly announced the Samsung the Galaxy Tab 4 Nook. It is essentially the Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 tablet, rebranded and preloaded with B&N's content. The move immediately sparked a not-quite-favorable comparison to Amazon. "It's an impressive effort, but even if they take a beachhead, they can't hold it," said tech analyst Rob Enderle. "Amazon can easily afford to counter them if they need to, and it is more likely to run them out of business more quickly."

Let’s have a contest at each conference for sleaziest booth. The vendor who wins gets a design-to-be-determined award sure to amplify their embarrassment and encourage them to grow up. Thoughts?

I’m sure I’ve even written a few headlines that played up the fear factor to get clicks. I’m human, and humans are often misguided. But if I’ve learned anything, it’s that throwing around words like “terrifying” and “scary” do more harm than good — especially when you’re using them at Black Hat, BSidesLV and DEF CON.

    An innovative clothing brand from Holland wants to change the way we label and talk about the size of our bodies. The first step in making such a huge cultural shift?

    We wouldn’t expect anything less from a TV show called ‘Selfie’, but it’s become the first TV show to ever get its pilot episode available and shareable through Twitter. Starting yesterday morning, ABC made the entire 22-minute pilot episode of the comedy, starring Doctor Who actor and Britain’s very own Karen Gillian, available to watch within a Tweet. What’s cool about it though is that Twitter users can share the episode by just using the hashtag #SelfieABC, which automatically embeds the video (although it only works on iOS phones, soz.)

    Whether it’s dodgy products, bad food or collective public rage, Twitter is now apparently the quickest way to get a response from a brand. But that’s only when they do respond. It’s also the least satisfying channel for complaints, with only 39 per cent of UK organisations able to answer questions successfully through their Twitter feed. Greggs’ spot of quick fire brandter (I’m sorry) around its offensive Google algorithm mishap may have amused the internet for several minutes on Tuesday, but it left some of us grumpily reflecting on our own experiences with online customer…

    Researchers from North Carolina State University have discovered a way to monitor the electric signals moths use to control their flight muscles, in order to intercept them. Their aim is to create remote-controlled moths that can be fitted with sensors and then sent to, for example, the site of an earthquake or accident, to gather data about the scale of the devastation and the level of emergency response required. Dr Alper Bozkurt is an assistant professor of electrical and computer engineering at the university and developed the technique with Dr Amit Lal from Cornell University. It…

Needless to say, competition between Robert The Bruce and AG.Aquarious is fierce. You can watch the live stream and wonder what you’re doing with your life here:

This could give a hint at a new way of getting people buying games: Letting Xbox Live Gold subscribers essentially rent the game for a day before deciding whether to buy or not.

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

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

    3 Jun 2014 | 11:57 pm
    Monday’s WWDC Keynote was easily the largest set of changes made to Apple’s platforms since iOS 2 was announced in 2008. The effects of what was announced will be felt and discussed for years to come. There is a lot to think through and write about, which I will be doing in the coming weeks. However, something struck me during the keynote that felt fairly small but, upon thinking about it afterward, I think could end up being important to Apple’s future success. Apple announced further updates to their cloud service where you can save all of the photos and videos you take,…

    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…

  • A traditional Korean Hanok house with OLED lighting panels

    21 Aug 2014 | 11:31 am
    IVAAIU, a Korean architectural design firm has applied OLED lighting panels (made by LG Chem) to a traditional Korean Hanok house. OLEDs were chosen because they offer excellent light quality (no UV, high CRI, no glare) and can be installed while maintaining the buildings as is. LG Chem tells us that they are currently seeking additional partnerships to further demonstrate the benefits that OLED lighting can bring to traditional architecture and heritage projects. It is great to see that OLED lighting can be used in such traditional settings - as it's actually the most natural light source…
  • LG's 55EA9800 curved OLED TV now shipping for $2,799 in the US

    19 Aug 2014 | 8:51 pm
    It feels like I'm writing the same post over and over again - LG lowers the price of their OLED TV again... Only 7 days ago I posted that LG's 2013 OLED TV model, the 55EA9800 is down to $3,198. And I estimated that it's likely we'll see a 55" OLED TV for less than $3,000 very soon. Well! That did not take long. Amazon is now offering the EA9800 for only $2,799 via online retailer MCMelectronics.LG recently launched their new 2014 55" curved FHD model (the 55EC9300) for $3,499. They probably do not produce the EA9800 no longer, so supply for the older model is probably limited. LG will…

    On March 2014 Motorola showed their first smartwatch, the beautiful Moto 360, and it will launch it on September 4th. It was widely speculated that it adopts an OLED panel - especially as it is always on and the battery drain on an LCD will be quite large.But today Best Buy posted a product listing by mistake (they took it off-line a short while later) which revealed the Moto 360 specifications: and it uses a 1.5" 320x290 round LCD panel.

RENs, grown under ulta-high vacuum are both magnetic and semiconducting.The team is basing its work on europium nitride, which is not usually magnetic, but has been "tricked" into behaving like a magnet by being produced with slightly too few nitrogen atoms. Those RENs are grown in France's Centre for Research on Hetero-Epitaxy and Applications.Source: ZDNet
  • Graphene Quantum Dots to enable next-gen flash memory devices

    19 Jun 2014 | 2:36 am
    One of the problems with flash memory is that it is sensitive to defects. To solve this problem, researchers from Samsung Electronics are developing flash devices based on graphene quantum dots (GQDs). The performance of such a device is promising, with an electron density that is comparable to semiconductor and metal nanocrystal based memories. Those flash memory can also be made flexible and transparent.The researchers used GQDs in three different sizes (6, 12, and 27 nm) between silicon dioxide layers. The memory of the QDs depend on their sizes: the 12 nm dot for example offers the…

  • How do I install Mavericks on my old Mac?

    21 Aug 2014 | 10:35 am
    I have an old Mac I’d like to install Mavericks on but I seem to have lost the admin password. How can I do this? Believe it or not, you don’t really need to be an admin to upgrade your Mac OS. However, you do need to boot right into the installer rather than try and launch it from your desktop. You might need a machine you DO have admin access to to create the bootable media, but that’s really all you need. Here’s what you need to do: Before being able to create a bootable OS X installer, you’ll need to do the following first: Use the Mac App Store to download…

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

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

It’s definitely more efficient than lots of small servers, both in terms of power and space. However, trying to fit them all on a tower or desktop isn’t the way forward. You need a proper server, located in a proper data centre to ensure…

    I recently received an email from the church secretary asking to update an event on the church website. Included was an image they wanted to accompany the information. Being the mindful and thoughtful webmaster (do we still call them webmasters?) that I am, I asked where the image was from, as I could make sure the image was cited properly. The answer from the church secretary was fairly awesome. PhotoFunia “I got them from PhotoFunia,” she said. I then was told about how great of a resource it’s been for the church bulletin.

    Whether you’re a part of a more traditional church, a smaller church that that just hasn’t had the budget, or you just haven’t done video before, taking the first steps toward using video in your church can seem daunting. There are some things you can do once you join a team or get the tap on the shoulder to “pray about starting a video ministry.” Research the types of video you might want to do. While there are basically, three types of video (see that previous post for the list) that most churches do, each can have sub-genres and different ways of realizing the…

  • What I Learned On Vacation: Check Your Email

    20 Aug 2014 | 11:00 am
    Last month I had a vacation of sorts (as I mentioned before). During this time, I had some personal revelations about my life—both personally and work wise. I lend this to the fact that I spent multiple days at a time unplugged and completely disconnected from the Internet. No laptop. No tablet. No smartphone. I highly recommend you do it sometime—if not regularly. Not only did it force me to pause, clear my head, and have some self-reflection, but it also gave me a chance to contrast what I considered to be my ‘normal’ life with actual living. One of the things I learned and would…

  • For secure software: X-rays instead of passport control

    20 Aug 2014 | 9:00 pm
    (Karlsruher Institut für Technologie (KIT) ) Trust is good, control is better. This also applies to the security of computer programs. Instead of trusting 'identification documents' in the form of certificates, JOANA, the new software analysis tool, examines the source code of programs. It detects leaks, via which secret information may get out or outsiders may enter the system. JOANA also minimizes false alarms. Developed by Karlsruhe Institute of Technology the tool has already proven itself in realistic test scenarios.

    20 Aug 2014 | 9:00 pm
    (NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) The moon appears to be a tranquil place, but modeling done by University of New Hampshire and NASA scientists suggests that, over the eons, periodic storms of solar energetic particles may have significantly altered the properties of the soil in the moon's coldest craters through the process of sparking -- a finding that could change our understanding of the evolution of planetary surfaces in the solar system.

    (Springer) Ever heard of the water window? It consists of radiations in the 3.3 to 4.4 nanometer range, which are not absorbed by the water in biological tissues. A new theoretical study identifies the physical mechanism needed to efficiently generate harmonic radiations at high laser intensities that occur beyond the saturation threshold of atoms and molecules. These findings, aimed at improving conventional methods of coherent radiation production to reach the water window, were published in EPJ D.

    The top ten list of most desirable video game companies to work for is out and the company perched atop the list is none other than Valve. You know what that means....HALF LIFE 3 CONFIRMED!!! Privately-owned Valve takes the number one spot, beating out even the eternal dream of entrepreneurship. It should be noted that both Valve and Blizzard are two companies in the industry that perhaps more than any other focus relentlessly on the quality of a release, sacrificing strict launch timetables in the process.

  • 5 Examples of Insect-Inspired Robotics

    Adam Thompson
    4 Aug 2014 | 10:50 am
    Everyone knows that robots are merely lifeless machines, no matter how amazing their abilities may be. However, you may be surprised at how often scientists replicate the features and capabilities of living creatures to increase robotic performance. In fact, there’s even a whole branch of robotics called “biomimetics” dedicated to that single premise. The term biomimetics means literally to “mimic life.” Insects are one form of life from which biomimetic scientists draw significant inspiration for new types of robotic technology. Functions and behaviors that evolved over…

Now anti-robot warriors can also rejoice because IBM has released a video with instructions for surviving a robot apocalypse (see video at the bottom of this post).

  • For Professional Designers: Website Builder Showdown: Webydo vs Adobe Muse

    Professional web designers have been frustrated for years by coding. According to surveys conducted among web designers, about 70% of a budget is spent on coding. It is a major expense, increasing the cost of a project, thus eating into a designer’s profit margin. Coupled with the rapid growth of ecommerce and businesses needing an Internet presence, a designer’s workload can become problematic. Quick but professional turnaround is key, which leads some designers to visual website design platforms. Adobe, one of the most well-known companies in the design industry, recently…

    Very interesting article in the Economist about "Entrepreneurial" vs "Innovation" economics. the whole article is well worth reading as it is one of those very rare items in the UK "Tech Startup" space - a systemic analysis with actual numbers. There are 3 key points dealing with the UK's current Startup / "Every Person is an Entrepreneur" craze: Firstly, State money is wasted on funding too many entrpreneurial SMES with too little money, they do nothing for the economy overall: ....once you take into account the number of SME jobs lost after the first three years of their creation, there is…

    24 Jun 2014 | 7:19 am
    Robobuzz (Source: NESTA - see link in text) As readers of this blog may know, we started watching Robotics again in about 2008* when it became clear to us that the advance of Moore's Law meant that finally enough computer power and battery life made it possible to build robots with all their systems onboard, so they could become self-mobile and (to an extent) self directing. This change was labelled "3rd Generation" robotics (as always it was hyped long before it became reality, but over the last 5 years or so there has been a tipping point), and heralded a "Cambrian Explosion" in new robot…

As always though, realizing potential comes down to execution. - The FB team are very focussed, Twitter is harder to judge - lots of change at the top over the years, we wouldn't be at all surprised if they bring in an "Eric Schmidt" figure.

  • Google's Self Drive Cars - just another Toll Road play

    19 May 2014 | 2:21 am
    From The Atlantic, it would seem that Google self drive cars rely hugely on the information about the road.: Today, you could not take a Google car, set it down in Akron or Orlando or Oakland and expect it to perform as well as it does in Silicon Valley. Here's why: Google has created a virtual track out of Mountain View. A Googler demonstrates what the self-driving car "sees." Note the background world on which the light traffic lights and their sightlines are displayed: that's the track. The key to Google's success has been that these cars aren't forced to process an entire scene from…

  • Attacks On Anonymity Conflate Anonymous Speech With Trollish Behavior

    Mike Masnick
    21 Aug 2014 | 3:42 pm
    Every so often this sort of thing pops up where people suddenly think it's a good idea to "end anonymity" online. We've discussed this in the past, and it's always the same basic argument -- one that conflates anonymity with "bad things" that people say online. There are all sorts of problems with this, but it starts with this: anonymity also allows people to reveal all sorts of good things online as well and plenty of people say and do horrible things with their names attached. And yet... the arguments keep on coming. Here, for example, is law professor Danielle Keats Citron in the NY Times…
  • Why Internet Access Monopolies Harm Innovation

    William Conlow
    21 Aug 2014 | 2:06 pm
    When antitrust stories make headlines—as the Comcast-Time Warner Cable merger has—even well-intentioned analysis often confuses harm to competitors with harm to competition. Viewing antitrust law through a "competition" lens, as opposed to a "competitors" lens, is not intuitive: consumers are harmed not by being denied access to existing services, but by being denied new ones. In antitrust law there is a debate, known as Schumpeter-Arrow—based on the initial intellectual adversaries, Joseph Schumpeter and Kenneth Arrow—which concerns whether monopoly power leads to innovation. On the…
  • Getty Threatens The Wrong IP Law Firm In Its Copyright Trolling Efforts

    Mike Masnick
    21 Aug 2014 | 12:48 pm
    Image licensing giant Getty Images has quite a reputation for being something of a copyright maximalist and occasional copyright troll. The company has been known to blast out threat letters and lawsuits not unlike some more notorious copyright trolls. And that's true even as the company just recently lost a copyright infringement suit in which Getty helped in the infringement. A few months ago, we had told you about Getty starting a new program in which it was making many of its images free to embed, saying that it was "better to compete" that way on the internet, rather than trying to…

    Mike Masnick
    21 Aug 2014 | 11:41 am
    Over the last few months, there's been tremendous press attention paid to a little nothing of a company called Rightscorp, which has basically tried to become the friendlier face of copyright trolling: signing up copyright holders, sending threat letters to ISPs, hoping those ISPs forward the threats to subscribers, and demanding much smaller fees than traditional copyright trolls (usually around $20). The idea is by being (just slightly) friendlier, and keeping the fees much lower, they might be able to "make it up in volume." The company has been subject to big profiles in Ars Technica,…

    The last time I shaved was the morning of my father’s funeral, which was a month ago. I wanted to have a physical sign of my mourning. Originally I thought to shave my head, but the first thing that Dad said to me when I first arrived in the hospital to see him before he passed was “C.K., your hair is beautiful!” I decided to grow a mourning beard and give it at least a month. It’s been a month, and as you can see, I’m not genetically inclined to grow a beard. Or at least not quickly. It’s actually on the verge of becoming a real beard, and I’m not…

    According to Hong Tan who is a senior researcher at Microsoft Research Asia, we should not limit ourselves only to sliding across and tapping our fingers on the screen for interaction with others through tablets or smartphones.

To give an example, if you are typing on the touchscreen keypad, you will get the feel very similar to when you press a key.

    App monetization is a hot topic today. More and more app developers are finding that their users don’t want to pay to download an app – they want it free, and they’re willing to suffer through advertising and other marketing methods to get that free price point. In fact, free apps routinely outperform paid apps in all categories save a couple (business utilities and navigation). Does that mean you’re doomed never to make a profit from your efforts? Not at all. Freemium has become the new standard, and some experts expect it to account for up to 93% of the global app market in just a…

    Getting your content shared is essential for anyone engaged in online marketing of any kind. Going “viral” is the goal, but it’s harder to achieve than you might realize. Truth be told, there’s no golden rule, no magic bullet, that guarantees your content will go viral. In fact, most marketing experts have no idea why one post goes viral when another doesn’t achieve that critical mass. However, while viral spread might be the Holy Grail of online marketing, creating content that get shared is more important. You might never attain “viral” status, but good content that’s shared…

Why doesn't Microsoft care that their flagship app store is such a cesspool?

Xiang Ligang, a telecom researcher in Beijing, said cutting carriers' subsidies to foreign-made handsets will not only reduce carriers' operating expense but also leave local players with more market demand.

The HTC One M8 for Windows is an exclusive device for U.S. carrier Verizon. Yeah. Good luck, with that.

    If you’ve ever customized the design of your HTML website, or tried changing the background color of your social profiles, you’ve probably encountered Hexadecimal color codes.

    Twitter, for many, has become a preferred medium of communication. Your email messages may never get read or, in the worst case, may get caught in the Spam folder but tweets and @mentions are very likely to get noticed. When you are travelling or going on a vacation, with limited access to the Internet, you often create an “out of office” reply in your email program to let people know that you won’t be able to respond to them right away. How about doing something similar for people who are trying to reach you through Twitter? What will the Twitter Auto-Responder do Unlike…

    Twitter has dropped support for RSS Feeds but there is a simple solution that you can use to generate RSS feeds for your various Twitter streams including Twitter search results, user timelines, favorites and even Twitter lists. Without RSS feeds, it is difficult to use your Twitter data elsewhere. For instance, you can no longer create recipes in IFTTT that get triggered when there’s a new tweet that @mentions you. You cannot import your Twitter timeline automatically into your blog. You cannot track Twitter search results for certain keywords in your RSS reader. How to Create RSS…

    Remember you could host websites on Google Drive for free? All you had to do was create a public web folder inside Drive, upload your HTML and CSS and the Drive would generate a website. The process was so easy and you could host static websites, Facebook Pages or even JavaScript based apps inside your Google Drive. Well, Google has recently upgraded the Google Drive interface for everyone and, according to the support page, the web hosting feature is no longer available in the new Google Drive.

This is putting pressure on businesses to develop apps, and develop them fast.

    Within the last 6 weeks, I’ve begun to understand why Facebook is such a narcissistic medium. If you’re sad, no one wants to deal with you. They may give you support, but if every post was sad and depressing, that trickles down to how you ultimately end up feeling. If you’re controversial, someone else will have another opinion and unfriend you. Happiness (without ego) is the only way to maintain good friendships, and usually, doesn’t impart negative judgments. Let’s dig into the second item there: controversy. As of late, there’s been a pretty big trend…

Brands have rushed to provide value (optimally) or promotions (typically) on every new communication platform, all of which are increasingly accessed through mobile devices, making customers’ relationships with brands solely a collection of micro-experiences. This is the “appification” of brand value. For decades, the key question has been “how valuable is the brand?” The key question moving forward is “how valuable are your apps?” Apple, of course, started this trend with the introduction of the first iPhone, but distilling entire companies…

    Have you ever walked into a restaurant in Houston and thought, “I want out of here right now”? Maybe the décor wasn’t appropriate, hostess was rude, seats weren’t comfortable, or it was dirty and smelled badly. Same thing can happen with websites. No, they don’t emit foul odors, thankfully, but they can drive customers away. The goal for your company’s website is to attract and engage potential new clients. But some business websites are like bad restaurants, they send their customers right out the door and they never come back.  The last thing you want to do with online…

    As we are nearing IFA, seems like HTC can’t wait for it. The Taiwanese giant just went ahead and teased what it seems like a successor to Desire 816. The company posted a teaser image on its Weibo account. The image is made up of six different images and top of the images the figure 820 is written. However, it could be possible that HTC releases the phone in China only. But for now, it is safe to say that something is coming pretty soon. As we all know, IFA is less than 2 weeks away. However, we currently don’t have a shred of concrete information about Desire 820. However, we do…

While one offers low end specs, the other one fits the mid-range. The good news is, both the devices will be having Android 4.4.2 Kitkat out of the box that will be covered by LG’s proprietary UI. We are not sure if the UI will be the same as LG G3 because recently, LG said that the company will work on bringing the UI to other LG phones as well.

The Exynos 5433 touting variant of the Galaxy Note 4 made rounds on AnTuTu and is showing some impressive performance. By impressive, it means that the new processor bested Snapdragon 805 and took the spot close to the Tegra K1 by Nvidia. But considering how we are not going to see that in a smartphone, it is safe to say that currently, the Exynos 5433 is the fastest processor in the smart phone industry. The Note 4 carries the model number N910C for the Exynos 5433 variant and N910S for the Snapdragon…

This means the dual camera set up is still there along with…

    Sam Reynolds
    21 Aug 2014 | 2:15 am
    An outright takeover of MediaTek by Intel to give Intel a fighting chance in the mobile market is likely to occur in the next two-to-three years, if one analyst’s prediction is to be believed. RBC Capital Markets Analyst Doug Freedman said in a research report released Wednesday that such a deal will happen as Intel struggles to organically increase its mobile market penetration organically while increasing shareholder value. For Intel, an acquisition of MediaTek — which doubled its baseband chip revenue between 2007 and 2013 from 7.3% to 14.4% — would give Intel a 30% market…

    Exclusive games once defined the brands they were attached to and were major motivators in terms of console choice. In those days gamers chose the platform that aligned with their taste in gaming, and for the most part, these titles stayed within their selected exclusive boundaries. Even a quick cursory glance at the industry is enough to see that things have longed changed since those days where the Xbox and PlayStation 2 reigned supreme. And the definition of “exclusive” has shifted quite a bit. Now we have concepts like timed-exclusives, pre-loading and a slew of key AAA…

    The good folks over a recently featured me on their site and the contents of my camera bag. You can see all the other photography gear that I use here. People are always asking what kind of gear I shoot with. On the flip side of that coin when I’m out on tour people are always asking about the gear I use on stage to do my presentations. So I thought it was time for a “What’s in my bag?” update. My backpack weighs a ton. Every now and then I take everything out and try to only put back in the things that I’m using on a regular basis.

    We are not a road-trip family — we fly — but last week we drove from Chicago to Niagara Falls and Toronto. Which meant more than 20 hours in the car round-trip and between destinations. With two 5-year-olds. And so, they asked “why?” approximately 200,000 times. And we answered. Kids don’t hesitate to clarify, dig deeper, and understand precisely. Adults do. We don’t ask “why” for reasons that boil down to self-limiting beliefs: we don’t want to impose, offend, or project that we do not understand. These are confidence and self-esteem…

    When you tell people you’re great, you’re selling. People expect that of you, and take it with a grain (or several grains) of salt. Also, although marketing is no place for modesty, personal moderation, discomfort with boldness, “preferring to let our work” do the talking hold us back from blowing our own horn. All of which is why we must obtain and communicate the thoughts and feelings of our happy customers. With testimonials and case studies, we must let our customers tell their peers about what they love best about us. There is nothing we can say that is more…

Always, focus on your value. It’s far more compelling. Don’t tell me about your technical specifications of process. Tell me about how I’ll be improved after I buy from you. 2. Simpler is always better. Simplify your product, service, marketing effort and messaging. Then simplify it again. 3. Even in your marketing, help people. That’s all we’re doing…

    Users who have waited patiently for almost 12 months for the launch of the iPhone 6 might be slightly disappointed with the additional details related to the technical specifications of the device. The first variant of the iPhone 6 will be equipped with 1GB of RAM; this means the RAM of the upcoming smartphone has not been upgraded as its predecessor the iPhone 5S also had RAM of 1GB. While this might be a disappointment shot for thousands of overzealous Apple fans, there are a couple of facts that they must know. The iPhone 5S, which is a phone carrying a dual core processor coupled with 1GB…

    Although there are tons of goodies to be unveiled by Motorola on the 4th of September, it seems that the most anticipated device among them is the Moto 360 smartwatch.

    While the Snapdragon 805 SoC happens to be a very powerful adversary for all of its rivaling mobile chipsets out there possessing a quad core Krait 450 processor along with an Adreno 420 GPU, there are still some chipsets that are able to beat Qualcomm’s powerful Snapdragon 805. In order to make sure that it is the leading provider of chipsets, the latest chipset that the company is working on is also a chipset that supports 64 bit operating systems. Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 810 is labeled with the code number MSM8994 and is reportedly still being tested on AnTuTu Benchmark. The unofficial…

    Samsung might be experiencing some trouble with the lack of revenue in recent months, but it is not going to hamper the progress of the smartphone manufacturing giant in delivering its flagship devices to the technological populace. While the Galaxy Note 3 was a beast in terms of performance and features, it is about to be usurped by its successor; the Galaxy Note 4, whose specifications have been leaked. The Galaxy Note 4 will possess a 5.7 inch screen, which is the same screen size as its predecessor, with a slight touch in upping the total number of pixels in that screen size. First off,…

    The e-commerce giant and Jeff Bezos’ Fire Phone might be packed with a lot of great features; but there were initial problems that were to be encountered with the device, as expected. While it is common for software to start developing bugs and issues overtime, the fact that these issues are able to get written off or at the very least mitigated, is very impressive. While the device did not have technical specifications that would leave users awestruck, it has enough features to steal their hearts. The first update for the Fire Phone has allowed users to finally take control of the…

There are, of course thousands of apps out there covering all of those functional categories, but since I’m feeling playful, let’s take a whistle-stop look at some of the lightweight leisure apps that have taken my fancy recently. Just to refine this down slightly, I’m going to restrict this to tablets. There is a growing distinction between the catch-all smartphone market and the less…

    Frédéric Filloux

      The modern smartphone is 7 years old and yet, when it comes to designing mobile applications, we are still barely scratching the surface. Today we’ll see how harnessing technology already embedded in a phone can unleash great potential.  A mobile news app has simple goals: Capture and retain reader attention, and repeat the process, several times a day. Pretty straightforward. But not that simple in the real world. For a news provider, the smartphone screen is the the most challenging environment ever seen. There, chances are that a legacy media or a pure-player will find itself in…

      iPad sales are falling – but the sky is not. We’re merely dealing with a healthy case of expectations adjustment. The tablet computer has always felt inevitable. The desire to harness the power of a computer in the comfortable form of a letter-size tablet with a keyboard, or perhaps a stylus for more natural interaction — or why not both? — has been with us for a very long time. Here we see Alan Kay holding a prototype of his 1972 Dynabook (the photo is from 2008): (credit: Alan prophetically called his invention a personal computer…

    10 Aug 2014 | 11:53 am
      With one million titles and no human guides, the Apple App Store has become incomprehensible for mere mortals. A simple solution exists: curation by humans instead of algorithms. Dear Tim, You know the numbers better than anyone — I don’t need to quote them to you — but we all know that the iOS App Store is a veritable gold mine. Unfortunately, the App Store isn’t being mined in the best interests of Apple’s customers and developers, nor, in the end, in the interests of the company itself. The App Store may be a gold mine, but it’s buried in an impenetrable jungle. Instead…

    When Apple announced its 64-bit A7 processor, I dismissed the speculation that this could lead to a switch away from Intel chips for the Macintosh line for a homegrown “desktop-class” chip. I might have been wrong. “I don’t know exactly when, but sooner or later, Macs will run on Apple-designed ARM chips.” Thus spake Matt Richman in a 2011 blog post titled “Apple and ARM, Sitting in a Tree”. Richman explained why, after a complicated but ultimately successful switch from PowerPC chips to Intel processors in 2005, Apple will make a similar switch, this time to ARM-based…

    Most cell phone owners around the world only have to worry about a single carrier technology called the Global System for Mobile Communications, or GSM for short. As its name implies, this standard was developed for, and has been adopted by, almost the entire globe as the way to communicate via cellular calls. But not everyone has jumped on the GSM train. An alternative cellular standard known as Code Division Multiple Access, or CDMA, is used by many carriers around the world.

The e-mail was analyzed by an automated system that few people know about, and the offending e-mail was brought to the attention of the authorities. Does this sound like a world you want to live in? That world is already here—and that system was used to catch a guy sending child pornography. Caught Red-Handed So how did it happen? John…

    Throughout time there have been many kinds of advertising strategies, and as these practices evolve we have found out the things that work, and the things that do not. The tendency to make the consumer feel more worthy if they have a particular product, for example, has proved to be very effective. At the same time, making a consumer feel bad about themselves has also been found to work very well, although the former of these two methods is more positive. When testing the effectiveness of selling a brand versus selling a story, we found that the latter of the two is much more efficient. Here…

    Working at home, in a cubicle, or at a café all have their own perks. Working at home allows you the freedom to not have to leave the house, a cubicle helps you to focus on your work, and a café allows private work time in a relaxing environment, plus coffee. However, there are also downsides to these as well: at home, you may succumb to lazy behavior, and in a cubicle one can become antisocial. A café may have all the resources you need, but you may feel it necessary to buy something every time you work. A co-working space, however, solves all of these problems. Why, you may ask? Lockers…

  • OneDrive Needs These 4 Features

    11 Aug 2014 | 2:56 pm
    I have been using Dropbox since 2010 and have nearly 290 GB of storage space in my account. However, I decided to give OneDrive another shot since it comes integrated deeply with my new Windows 8.1 device out-of-the-box. Unlike Dropbox which currently lacks document editing capabilities, OneDrive brings the added benefits of Microsoft Office online integration. This seemed like a good reason to switch, but I quickly noticed a few critical drawbacks after spending a week using OneDrive exclusively for all my documents. Here are some much-needed features: 1) Revision History Dropbox…

This morning I’m launching Smartcar which aspires to bring automation to the next-generation of connected vehicles. Here’s what it does: We’re starting with two features. The Intelligent Climate technology learns a person’s driving habits and automatically pre-conditions their vehicle to the perfect temperature before they even get into it by anticipating their next commute. In addition, the Intelligent Charging feature helps significantly…
  • Should your start-up host a launch party?

    Martin Shen

    Start-ups have come into vogue. Today’s Silicon Valley has brogrammers, swag galore, and even its own reality TV show. Geeks are the new party rockers and we’re starting to see the resurrection of crazy start-up launch parties. Lean mean start-up machines will tell you that launch parties are poor customer acquisition strategies. And 99% of the time, these bootstrappers are correct. However, at least 1% of the time a well executed party can really accelerate early growth for your company. My start-up, UpOut, threw a low-cost launch party in the Mission District of San…

    3 Mar 2013 | 11:16 pm
    I decided to purchase a Microsoft Surface Pro when it made a debut last month. It seemed like the perfect device which could function both as a laptop and a tablet. Since it features a full-blown Windows 8 Pro operating system, I could use for just about anything including Photoshop or running Ubuntu in Virtualbox when coding. The 128 GB model goes for about $999. Throwing in a type keyboard brings the price tag up to about $1,100. The Intel i5 processor, a full HD display, and a USB 3.0 port makes the package even more attractive. A comparable 11-inch Macbook Air with a 128 GB SSD still…

  • EHRs Not Changing Medical Billing Practices – Study Finds

    Julie Clements
    20 Aug 2014 | 12:07 am
    The main objective behind the federal government’s initiative to provide incentives to push hospitals and physicians to use electronic health records (EHR) was to improve efficiency and patient safety thereby reducing total healthcare costs. Inappropriate use of the EHR system has been a strong concern since 2012 with the Departments of Justice and Health and Human Services alerting hospitals about the wrong use of this system. Hospitals that used this system were billing Medicare for a significantly more amount than hospitals using paper records. They were charging higher for a large…

    The Affordable Care Act (ACA) aims to expand the health insurance coverage to millions of Americans through a combination of public programs and private-sector health insurance expansions. A recent report reveals that the new enrollments in Obamacare’s Medicaid expansion and other healthcare programs aimed for the poor people have reached 6.7 million after the implementation of healthcare reforms last year. The new figure that mainly comprises state Medicaid plans (that existed before Obamacare) and the Children’s health insurance plan, showed an enrollment increase by about…

    Knee replacement is an effective orthopedic operative procedure for people with severe knee damage from arthritis or injury. This procedure is proven to relieve pain, correct leg deformity, and helps people quickly resume normal activities. According to the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality, more than 600,000 knee replacements are performed each year in the United States. The study, published in the June issue of Journal of Bone and Joint Surgery, found that total knee replacements more than tripled between 1993 and 2009.

Even with the growing rates of implementation, clinician dissatisfaction remains a prominent issue. As per Physician Practice 2014 Technology survey, EHR implementation continues to be the most critical technology issue for physician practices. Reports suggest that about 17% of practices reveal that adoption and implementation of this system is a critical issue, about 16% say it lacks…
  • Extra Dose of Polio Vaccine Speeds Up Global Eradication Efforts

    Julie Clements

    Polio, or poliomyelitis, is an infectious viral disease which mainly affects young children. The condition upsets a person’s nervous system and can cause paralysis. Thanks to the polio vaccine, dedicated healthcare professionals, and parents who vaccinate their children on schedule, polio has been eradicated from this country for more than 30 years. Oral poliovirus vaccine (OPV) that is administered orally can be given by volunteers and does not require trained health workers or sterile injection equipment.

  • The Dark Side of SQL Server… When Good Queries Go Bad

    Andrew Mayo
    15 Aug 2014 | 5:10 am
    It was said somewhere in Lord of the Rings that Wizards ‘are subtle and quick to anger,’ and substituting ‘SQL Server’ in this phrase proves to be also true. Over the last couple of years I have had a number of issues with SQL Server which specifically involve self-referencing updates. A self-referencing update uses the destination table in the query associated with the update. These problems occasionally cause catastrophic, unpredictable degradation in query performance which has caused CM syncs to suddenly degrade and in some cases never complete. It is becoming evident that…

  • Happy 9th Birthday Joomla

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

    12 Jun 2014 | 1:51 pm
    I arrived at J & Beyond not in the best of moods. I'd been off work sick for the previous month and to be honest I was tired, run down and a little depressed. There are just times when things become a constant battle of frustration and nothing seems worth the effort and that's exactly where I was. After months of preparation for JAB14 I was no longer interested and was determined that this would be my last JAB and probably my last Joomla event. Mood 0/10 I had convinced my JAB teammates to introduce two new features for 2014 and I was no longer certain that the Make it Happen or…
  • Create your own Joomla manual

    28 May 2014 | 10:00 pm
    Documentation in any Open Source project is seen as the Holy Grail. It's great to have but somehow never quite fulfils the needs of the users. Joomla has an excellent documentation resource but I think it is fair to categorise these docs mainly as "reference" material and not "user guides". There are some excellent books and some truly awful books but without exception they are generic titles targeted as the site builder or site programmer. If you build sites for people or you have had a site built for you, you don't need or want a thousand page manual, you want a simple twenty page guide…
  • Easily create web site images

    15 Apr 2014 | 8:42 am
    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. Yesterday I found a new web site that does all the hard work for you. With Canva you can quickly and easily take any of their stock elements and completely customise them to your exact needs. It's very quick and incredibly easy to use. There are loads of…
  • Akeeba Backup for WordPress

    31 Mar 2014 | 10:00 pm
    Yesterday was world backup day. Did you remember to take your backups? Of course you're taking them daily aren't you and not just once a year!! 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? Have you struggled…

  • Asian Carrier’s Conference 2013 Kicks Off in Cebu

    3 Sep 2013 | 9:35 pm
    The 2013 ACC kicked off on Tuesday morning with an acknowledgement by Philippine Long Distance Telecommunications (PLDT) CEO Napolean L. Nazareno that “we’re going through a profound and painful transformation to digital technologies.”  He continued to explain that in addition to making the move to a digital corporate culture and architecture that for traditional telcos to succeed they will need to “master new skills, including new partnership skills.” That direction drives a line straight down the middle of attendees at the conference.  Surprisingly, many companies attending and…
  • What Value Can I Expect from Cloud Computing Training?

    30 Aug 2013 | 6:31 pm
    Normally, when we think of technical-related training, images of rooms loaded with switches, routers, and servers might come to mind.    Cloud computing is different.  In reality, cloud computing is not a technology, but rather a framework employing a variety of technologies – most notably virtualization, to solve business problems or enable opportunities. From our own practice, the majority of cloud training students represent non-technical careers and positions. Our training does follow the CompTIA Cloud Essentials course criterion, and is not a technical course, so the non-technical…
  • Connecting at the Westin Building Exchange in Seattle

    29 Aug 2013 | 1:45 am
    International telecommunication carriers all share one thing in common – the need to connect with other carriers and networks.  We want to make calls to China, a video conference in Moldova, send an email message for delivery within 5 seconds to Australia – all possible with our current state of global communications.  Magic?  Of course not.  While an abstract to most, the reality is telecommunications physical infrastructure extends to nearly every corner of the world, and communications carriers bring this global infrastructure together at  a small number of facilities…
  • Why IT Guys Need to Learn TOGAF

    12 Aug 2013 | 6:00 pm
    Just finished another frustrating day of consulting with an organization that is convinced technology is going to solve their problems.  Have an opportunity?  Throw money and computers at the opportunity.  Have a technology answer to your process problems?  Really?. The business world is changing.  With cloud computing potentially eliminating the need for some current IT roles, such as physical server huggers…, information technology professionals, or more appropriately information and communications technology (ICT) professionals, need to rethink their roles within organizations.

  • How valuable is search engine optimisation for businesses?

    19 Aug 2014 | 7:37 am
    All businesses need to appear near, or at the top, of search engine results lists. This is the first place that consumers turn when looking for any kind of product or service, and they will rarely click past the first few results. You can appear at the top of these lists with the help of internet marketing agencies. The internet has completely transformed the way in which consumers shop for products and services. They no longer walk to the high street or look in the book for local services, they now go online. You can find all kinds of products and services online, and this method brings…

    When you are planning a trip, you need all the help you can get. If you’re not lucky enough to have a personal assistant to take care of your travel plans, don’t panic.

    Computer systems are a familiar sight in any office environment, and even at home we have access to at least one computer in the household! Whether you use a Windows PC, an Apple Mac or some other variant, computer systems are part and parcel of everyday life in the 21st century. For businesses, computer systems have been a godsend.

  • Return on Investment (ROI) of Data Science as a Service

    John Myers
    18 Aug 2014 | 9:31 am
    In skiing, the “black diamond” run or ski slope is often referred to as “high risk/high reward.” You receive lots of “reward” skiing the black diamond slopes, but you have a significant amount of “risk” associated with variable terrain, such as the presence of trees and the possibility of injury. However, the black diamond slopes are very fun to experience, and you can mitigate the risks with preparation, practice, and a really good skiing helmet. Data science is one of those “high risk/high reward” concepts in technology. An organization can gain huge financial rewards by…
  • F5 Takes on Policy Orchestration, SDN

    Jim Frey contributed to this blog post. On Wednesday, August 6, 2014, F5 Networks held an analyst summit at the company’s tech center in NYC. It was a great opportunity to catch up and see what was new and where the company is headed. The company appears to be enjoying a bit of a renaissance, looking to redefine its role in the data center as virtualization makes headway into the network domain under the banner of SDN. While true production SDN remains in its infancy, with no single approach emerging to solve all the ills of the network world, there is no debating that programmability will…

    Welcome to “The StorHouse”! This house will accommodate all areas of storage, and there is plenty to cover. As a product manager in storage for 20 years, I had the opportunity to see some pretty interesting changes in the market. Events such as the move to distributed computing, the advent of technologies like virtual disk and snapshot copies and moving from large single large expensive disk (SLEDS) with huge 11” platters to a single solid state PCIe card with 6TB of capacity. Disk storage costs have fallen from over $1,000 per GB to under $.10 per GB with 4TB SATA drives.
  • Optimizing Change by Understanding Value

    Dennis Drogseth
    31 Jul 2014 | 12:29 pm
    A little over a year ago, I got into a rather animated argument about whether IT could measure its performance by the “value” it delivered rather than by purely measuring “costs.” My dinner companion insisted that IT could now, always, and forever only be measured on costs. I disagreed. In fact I had just planned [...]
  • Stoking the Application Pipeline with PaaS: Don’t Underestimate the Power of the Platform

    Julie Craig
    29 Jul 2014 | 12:55 pm
    Dominique Vernier’s blog, “Leverage SaaS and PaaS to speed up application development,“ provides an excellent overview of IBM’s cloud-based approach to software development and delivery. IBM’s introduction of the Bluemix Platform as a Service (PaaS) to the marketplace earlier this year builds on the existing capabilities of Jazz (/ introduced in 2008. While Jazz addresses the requirements and design stages of the application lifecycle, Bluemix extends IBM’s cloud-based capabilities to development, testing, and production as well. The Bluemix PaaS runs on Cloud Foundry…

  • 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…
  • Software Architecture Canvas – a brother of the business model canvas?

    Patryk Borowa
    17 Jul 2014 | 3:57 am
    Have you ever heard of the business model canvas? If so, then you know that it is basically a board of basic elements which need to be evaluated in the process of creating a product and the business around it. 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…

The real engineering is the ability to combine available libraries and frameworks into something that works flawlessly in every conditions. In one of my previous posts I showed you…

    If there is one thing guaranteed to scupper any small or medium sized business, it is complacency.After all, a quick glance at the economic climate in the UK indicates that all is well in the world of business and commerce. With record employment growth driving down jobless levels to pre-recession levels, for example, there is genuine weight beyond the claim that Britain could emerge as Europe’s largest and most prosperous economy by the year 2030. While this may be good news for business owners, it may also create a sense of complacency that could drastically undermine your venture.With…

  • Other States Should “Line” Up Behind California | A Tale of Process, Andreesen & Lyft Line

    Mike Montgomery
    14 Aug 2014 | 9:38 am
    When ride-sharing company Lyft announced its new service Lyft Line — which, for those unaware, lets people headed in the same direction share the cost of a ride together — the first thing I thought of was the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC). Weird, I know. But CPUC was behind last year’s rule legitimizing for-profit ridesharing companies like Lyft, Sidecar, and Uber for legal operation within the state. Without that action, it’s safe to say an idea like Lyft Line would’ve been a major uphill climb — if it saw the light of day at all. At the announcement of the new…

Of course, over the years as health care professionals, manufacturers & consumers have become more educated, the factors that define “healthy” foods have evolved.

Now, it seems social media may be simplifying the ecommerce channel, giving consumers the ability to make purchases directly in the ads and posts for products they see in their feeds. Both Facebook and Twitter have now begun testing “buy now” buttons to their sites and apps.

It also has a rather “smallish” 4.7 inch 720p SuperAMOLED screen. Although it looks a bit like an…

  • Twitter Offers Analytics for Organic Tweets

    Dave Paul
    18 Aug 2014 | 11:45 am
    Twitter is one of those things you’re “supposed” to do. It’s a way to reach your audience and promote your brand, essentially for free. But how much are you actually reaching people? Do your tweets get read, do your links get clicked, and would paying to promote tweets be a great marketing spend or a total waste of cash? Until recently, those are questions most business owners couldn’t answer. That’s because “organic” tweets—the ones you send out every day, without paying anything—had no analytics support. No data. No way to see what was working. Twitter changed that a…

Simply press "ShiftCommand + G" in Finder and paste in "/Applications/" and then open the Apple.txt file. Voila! (H/T to Cult of Mac, where we found this story.) Here's the full text of the speech: Here's to the crazy ones. The misfits, the rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs…

  • GSM Vs. CDMA: What Is The Difference And Which Is Better?

    Matt Smith
    21 Aug 2014 | 11:00 am
    Most cell phone owners around the world only have to worry about a single carrier technology called the Global System for Mobile Communications, or GSM for short. As its name implies, this standard was developed for, and has been adopted by, almost the entire globe as the way to communicate via cellular calls. But not everyone has jumped on the GSM train. An alternative cellular standard known as Code Division Multiple Access, or CDMA, is used by many carriers around the world. It is most popular in the United States and Russia, but it’s also used in some Asian and African…

    21 Aug 2014 | 10:00 am
    Bit by bit, Windows’ reverse compatibility is fading. Here’s how to fight that – and get incredibly old 16-bit software and games like Chip’s Challenge running. In case you didn’t know: 64-bit versions of Windows can’t run software from the 16-bit era. This isn’t going to be a problem for most people: Windows 3.1, the last 16-bit version of Windows, was released way back in 1992. But if you’ve got an ancient piece of software you want to run on a new computer, are you simply out of luck? Not completely. Let’s go through your options for running 16-bit…

    It sounds like something from George Orwell’s 1984: a man sends a private e-mail and finds himself arrested for it. The e-mail wasn’t intercepted by an investigating police officer; the man wasn’t even under suspicion before his arrest. The e-mail was analyzed by an automated system that few people know about, and the offending e-mail was brought to the attention of the authorities. Does this sound like a world you want to live in? That world is already here—and that system was used to catch a guy sending child pornography. Caught Red-Handed So how did it happen? John…

    From its meager beginnings as a student search engine project called BackRub at Stanford University, to the powerhouse search engine that is both a noun and a verb in one, Google’s path has been one of growth and constant adaptation with the times. Examining the path of that history provides some interesting insights into what the world’s most popular search engine will probably look like in 10 years. Why 10 years? Because 10 years encompasses nearly the entire lifetime of Google, from the moment of its first major algorithm update in 2003 called “Boston”. In 10 years,…

  • Troubleshoot Keyboard and Mouse Not Working in Windows

    Aseem Kishore
    19 Aug 2014 | 2:05 pm
    One of the USB ports on my desktop computer stopped working after I had plugged in a USB device and removed it without ejecting. I’ve done it a million times, but it looked like my luck finally ran out. The port seemed fine in Device Manager because there were no error or warning icons. So after doing a bit of reading online, I came across a Microsoft article that told me I should go ahead and uninstall the USB Host Controllers under USB Serial Bus Controllers in Device Manager. After that, you just have to restart your computer and Windows should find the hardware again and install it.
  • How to Check if Your VPN Connection is Actually Encrypted

    I recently subscribed to a VPN service for my personal use so that my Internet connection from home is completely encrypted. With all the spying and hacking revelations going on these days, I don’t mind having a little bit of extra security on my side just in case. Once I had installed the software on computer and connected to the VPN, it seemed to be working fine as far as I could tell. However, being a techie person myself, I couldn’t just accept that everything was working without actually verifying that the encryption was enabled. So even though I hadn’t played around…

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…

    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.

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…

    If you ever had a pet lizard as a child, it was quite likely a green anole. As is the case with other lizards, they have the ability to break off their own tail when attacked by a predator, and then regrow it. Scientists from Arizona State University recently announced that they have cracked the code regarding that tail regrowth process, and are now hoping that it could be applied to the field of regenerative medicine. ..

For example, when I started looking to get hired for freelance IT jobs I was completely self-taught and I believed that was a disadvantage.

    Unlike Windows-based computers, Macs usually do not come with multiple hard-drive partitions. It is just a single partition that you see when you first boot your Mac. Though there is no harm using your Mac with a single partition, it is highly recommended that you have at least two partitions on your machine. This will let you store your important files on one partition when the other one is being formatted. It is also helpful if you plan to install another OS beside your Mac OS.

Most desktop-based Linux distributions have a way to find files from the desktop, but you can also find files from the command line using the find command.“find” searches through a directory tree looking for files that match the criteria supplied. If you just type find from the command line, the program will list every file in the current directory and all of its sub-directories.

Mars stands out with its reddish colouring and you might just be able to detect a faint yellow tinge to Saturn. The two planets have been slowly drifting towards each other and now Mars makes its dash to move past Saturn. Towards the north is Scorpius, a dominant feature of our winter sky and an easy constellation to recognise with its hook-shaped tail and bright red supergiant Antares. Claws of justice In ancient…
  • Life boils down to five 'rules' ... or so says the Madingley Model

    James Smith, Research Fellow in Fisheries at UNSW Australia
    20 Aug 2014 | 9:19 pm
    Every living organism needs the same five basic processes – and we can now model ecosystems on them.erban/Flickr, CC BY-NC-NDIt may sound overly simple, but just five processes can define us as animals: eating, metabolism, reproduction, dispersal and death. They might not seem like much, but, thanks to a mathematical model from scientists at Microsoft Research, we know that these five processes are the key to all ecosystems. It’s called the Madingley Model, and is the first time scientists have simulated ecosystems across the globe using a single set of biological rules. When these rules…

    Tom Higham and Katerina Douka uncover evidence that early humans and Neanderthals lived alongside each other for thousands of years.Thomas Higham , Author providedA new study has dated the final days of the Neanderthals and found they lived at the same time as the earliest modern humans in Europe. Rather than seeing Neanderthals suddenly vanish at the time modern humans appeared in Europe, we see a patchwork of the two species living side by side for several millennia. The study, published today in Nature, explores two of the key issues in Palaeolithic archaeology: did Neanderthals and modern…

    The pressure got to him last time, so how will developer Dong Nguyen cope if his new mobile game Swing Copters takes off? Flappy Bird was downloaded more than 50 million times and was the number one free game in the Apple App Store and Google Play Store charts before Nguyen pulled it in early 2014 sparking petitions, suicide hoax stories and death threats.

  • Run Windows software on Google's Chromebooks with Citrix Receiver for Chrome

    Brian Fagioli
    21 Aug 2014 | 9:01 am
    Chromebooks are amazing computers. Part of the genius of Google's Chrome OS is its lack of freedom; a seemingly crazy statement, I know. You see, users cannot install software locally, which in turn, also blocks viruses and malware. In other words, limitations become a strength from a security standpoint. However, sometimes the limitations of the OS are not a positive, but a negative. For business users in particular, using Chrome web apps exclusively is a non-starter. Sure, some small business users can get by, but many large companies rely on specialized software -- mostly for Windows.

    21 Aug 2014 | 7:50 am
    Software-defined networking (SDN) enabling the wireless LAN (WLAN) can help deliver a consistently high performance of critical business applications and simplify unified management of wired and wireless networks. However, to do this effectively, WLAN vendors need to provide solutions that offer immediate benefits to the IT department without any additional training or a "rip-and-replace" of existing controllers and access points. It also means that these solutions must truly embrace the open architecture approach to SDN enabled by OpenFlow and advocated by communities and industry…

Alex reports that all major NAS and SAN storage vendors lost revenue this year over the previous year ranging from a ~3% loss to over a 20% loss (Q1-2014 compared to Q1-2013, from IDC). Although an interesting development, it’s hard to say that this is the end of enterprise storage as we know it.  I believe there are a number of factors that are impacting  enterprise storage revenues and Cloud storage adoption may be…

But after reading the book and attempting my first almost laughable meditation session, I self-diagnosed myself with a serious case of chronic monkey mind.

    Reserved instances allow you to make a one-time payment to Amazon in return for a discount on your compute costs. The rationale for reserved pricing is simple: by getting customers to commit to the usage of specific infrastructure, Amazon can better manage their capacity, and therefore pass these savings on to their customers. By now we are all likely well aware of the various options for reserved instances, including types (Heavy, Medium, Light) and terms (1 and 3 year). But here are 6 thing you may not know about reserved instances. 1 - The Dual Benefits Reserved instances provide two…
  • CloudFront: A Low Cost Alternative To Premium CDNs

    Joe Kinsella

    I've been noticing a steady uptick in the interest in Amazon CloudFront recently, driven by what appears to be a commoditization in the CDN market. This market shift is opening up an opportunity for less feature rich / more cost effective offerings to compete with the premium services such as Akamai. One of the challenges in adopting CloudFront as your CDN is that it is not a premium service. It lacks many of the features and tools users have come to expect from more sophisticated offerings. But in return it has one compelling advantage: it is cheap. So for those of you looking to gain the…

So I’m always curious to hear how others run their sprint planning, in part to pilfer new ideas, but also since it provides incredible insight into how other organizations work (note: nothing reveals the good, bad and ugly of an organization faster than attending a sprint planning meeting).

The company I had joined was on the verge of spiraling out of control, I was working yet another 70+ hour week, and my team was under intense pressure for what seemed like an impossible deadline. But all I could remember thinking is: "I can't believe I'm getting paid to do this job!" In over 20 years, that passion for building software has never left me.
