    As it turns out, thousands of years of astronomy study has been all for naught, as Bill Nye revealed on Tuesday's Inside Amy Schumer. In fact, he posits, the Universe's main function is offering cosmic guidance to women in their twenties. See also: Bill Nye explains evolution using emoji "Try to imagine the universe as a giant dream board on which women pin their wishes," Nye helpfully explains.

    The Vatican's secretary of state has described the Irish vote to legalize same-sex marriage as "a defeat for humanity." Speaking to reporters on Tuesday evening, Cardinal Pietro Parolin said he was saddened by the landslide decision, in which more than 62% of voters in the Roman Catholic country voted 'yes' to marriage equality.

  • Good News! Dianne Feinstein Is Here To Reform The Section 215 Program By Making Everything Worse!

    Tim Cushing
    27 May 2015 | 6:13 am
    As Section 215 dies a rather noisy death (OR DOES IT? An emergency session convenes on May 31st, a day normally filled with the quiet emptiness of the extended Memorial Day holiday.), the defenders of the mostly-useless surveillance program are out in force, hoping to keep this part of the Patriot Act from expiring. Mitch McConnell's hope for a no-questions-asked reauthorization is as dead as Section 215 (in its original form) appears to be. The USA Freedom Act stumbled in the Senate, falling three votes shy of being brought to the floor. Now, everyone seems to have a "fix" they'd like to…
  • 2 Teen Diablo Players Were Charged, Got Probation For 'Stealing' Virtual Items That Were Replaced

    27 May 2015 | 4:13 am
    With some of the recent news stories about how cheating, or other crimes, committed in virtual settings is resulting in real-world legal consequences, I'm sort of surprised the media hadn't picked up on this story before. Apparently back in the summer of 2012, two teenagers, Patrick Nepomuceno and Michael Stinger, ran a scheme in Blizzard's Diablo 3 in which Stinger would send out a link to another player that allowed Nepomuceno to take control of the player's computer, force the player's character to drop all of his/her valuable virtual game items, and then Stinger would scoop them up.
  • How Corporate Sovereignty Undermines Democracy By Irrevocably Binding Future Governments

    Glyn Moody
    27 May 2015 | 1:15 am
    Techdirt has been at the forefront of pointing out the dangers of including investor-state dispute settlement (ISDS) in so-called trade agreements. Indeed, we even helped come up with a new term -- corporate sovereignty -- to make clear that ISDS is really about placing corporations on the same level as entire nations, and giving them a unique power to sue a country for alleged harms before special tribunals. But there's an additional aspect to this, which is explored in an insightful article by Sam Fowles on The Conversation. He points out that although we don't know in detail what the US-EU…

    Normally, when we talk about companies and institutions looking to silence security researchers and their ilk who have tried to expose potential threats, the story ends without tragedy. United Airlines, for instance, went on the attack on Chris Roberts, who may well be an idiot, for exposing in-flight WiFi security concerns. CyberLock decides to go legal on a researcher who had been trying desperately to contact them about a security flaw in a number of its electronic locks.

    Michael Ho
    26 May 2015 | 5:00 pm
    It's fairly common in science fiction for space mining operations to exist, but the reality is that just getting anything into space is pretty expensive -- and there isn't all that much stuff in space that needs to get re-supplied with materials. However, the legal basis for claiming ownership of space resources may be clearing up, and a few companies might actually be driving down the costs of getting a spacecraft into space. The concept of striking a literal gold mine in space might not happen, but the technology to collect resources in space might still be valuable for future space…

  • XTERRA Malibu Creek 22k Trail Race 2015 Report

    20 May 2015 | 10:37 pm
    After my crash and burn at the Leona Divide 50/50 race I thought I’d take some time to carefully pick the next race. It was between the Born To Run 50k (30 miler) and the XTERRA Malibu Creek 22k which I had run the year before. The BTR race looked like fun but I finally decided to focus on a course I’ve already run and to shoot for a PR on the XTERRA race. You can see some of my training for the race last year here and this is my race report for XTERRA Malibu Creek 2014. Now that I’ve started using to post workouts and track the activity of others I’m able…
  • Leona Divide 50k 2015 Race Report – DNF

    19 Apr 2015 | 8:03 pm
    I ran the Leona Divide 50k race yesterday with about 500 other trail running fanatics. Unfortunately my race ended around mile 21 when I chose to drop. It was a tough race and thoughts and emotions are still swirling but wanted to put things down in writing although I’m sure my thoughts and judgments will change over the next few days and weeks. The Leona Divide 50k was part of long term plan to attempt and finish my first ultra this year. In December I started training for my first attempt, the Sean O’Brien 50k but then I figured I should attempt a trail marathon so I switched…

    Last year I signed up for the Bandit Ultra Trail Race 30k and the days leading up to the race I got sicker and sicker. The day before the race I thought I could pull it off even though I had massive body aches and felt like death warmed over. I picked up my bib and shirt but by the time I got home I was a wreck and had to DNS the race. This year I went back to the Bandit a week after running the Sean O’ Brien Marathon but went to volunteer. If you were in the race, I was one of the guys along with JK who helped steer 50k, 30k and 15k runners around the first loop then onto the first…

    9 Feb 2015 | 8:20 am
    I got a little crazy in December and decided to sign up for my first ultra race. After some training I figured it made more sense to do a trail marathon first so with that I changed my registration from the Sean O’Brien 50K to the Marathon race on February 7, 2015. If you’re not familiar with the Sean O’Brien races, this is the second year for the races, held at Malibu Creek State Park in Agoura Hills. Last year runners could sign up for the Marathon, 50k or the 50 miler. The 50 miler turned into a playground for elite runners seeking to qualify for a coveted Western States…

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

    Cord cutters across the country knew they had turned a corner the moment HBO announced that it was finally placing some distance between itself and traditional pay TV with its new HBO Now service. With this new plan, households that chose not to subscribe to a pay TV service would still be able to access all of HBO’s content with a new streaming-only option. And the best part, perhaps, was that cord cutters knew HBO would be the first of several networks to offer streaming-only options to subscribers. Though the service just launched a few months ago, it looks as though HBO is already…

The AT&T-exclusive (for the time being, at least) G Pad F 8.0 will cost $149.99 on a two-year contract when it goes on sale next Friday.

    Thankfully, tinny, terrible laptop speakers seem a relic of the past, but there are still occasions when the built-in audio from your portable computer's speakers or audio jack just doesn't quite cut it. Let's say you're an electronic music luminary traveling the world without the comforts of one's home studio but with an album deadline to meet. You need to hear what's going on. So here's the Apogee Groove, a portable USB amplifier that apparently improves audio all the way from low-bitrate WAV files to high-quality FLAC files.
  • Is Home Where HomeKit's Heart Is?

    26 May 2015 | 10:03 am
    Apple reportedly is preparing to launch an app called "Home" to act as an interface for setting up and managing smart devices that plug into its HomeKit framework. The Home app is expected to manage thermostats, smoke alarms, garage door openers, door locks, and other automated home tech. Apple already has announced that some HomeKit products will be making their debut at this year's WWDC, which will be held next month in San Francisco. It's possible the Home app could be unveiled there as well.
  • Apple vs. Lenovo: Lenovo's Coming-Out Party

    25 May 2015 | 5:00 am
    If there is one vendor on the planet that has the capability to fight Apple -- on paper, it is Lenovo. Lenovo this week will hold its annual Lenovo Tech World event in China, showcasing the company's new breadth. While it would be easy to position this as the U.S. against China, Lenovo is actually far more of a multinational company, with executives balanced between the U.S. and China, and with strong alliances with both Microsoft and Google. This will not only be a battle between companies, but also between approaches to the market.

    The United States and its leading Western allies, known as the "Five Eyes," reportedly planned to hack into smartphones through their links to Google and Samsung's app stores. They wanted to infect apps with spyware and find ways to send misinformation to targets, according to documents released to the media by National Security Agency whistle-blower Edward Snowden. The intelligence agencies also apparently began targeting the mobile browser UC Browser in late 2011, after discovering it leaked revealing details about its users.

    The latest edition of Simplicity Linux, version 15.4, recently became available for download. Simplicity Linux delivers just what its name suggests: It is a simpler way to run a fully powered Linux desktop on any computer you touch. Simplicity lets you carry your entire desktop, favorite installed applications, and complete collection of documents and files in your pocket everywhere you go. Other Linux distros let you do much the same thing -- but solutions like Puppy Linux, Porteus, Knoppix and such are a bit trickier to set up and configure.

    The message-in-a-bottle routine is going Wi-Fi. And that means pretty soon you'll have your very own mini Times Square at the bar, right on the bottle. "Everyone likes to see their name in lights," says Brandon Laidlaw, president and chief operating officer of Pleasanton, California-based Medea vodka, which recently introduced a liquor bottle equipped with an LED message band that can be programmed to scroll any message that inspires you via a free smartphone app. OK, so maybe it's message ON a bottle.

    25 May 2015 | 4:55 am
    Hewlett-Packard is selling a controlling stake in its China server and storage unit, a move that comes as the Chinese government, apparently worried about U.S. cyberspying, has encouraged the use of local companies. HP said Thursday it will sell the 51 percent stake in the business for about $2.3 billion to Tsinghua Holdings, part of state-owned Tsinghua University. The sale will create a partnership to be called H3C. HP said the move will accelerate growth in the country. "HP is making a bold move to win in today's China," said CEO Meg Whitman.

    Could the new version of AppleâEU™s mobile operating system make your old iPhone or iPad run more smoothly? That could happen when the tech giant rolls out iOS 9, which is supposed to focus on performance and stability instead of new features. That focus on performance could extend all the way back to three- and four-year-old Apple devices, according to a report on 9to5Mac. The Web site cited sources within AppleâEU™s software development departments saying that Apple engineers have been advocating for a focus on stability in 2015 in the wake of the buggy debuts of both iOS and OS X.

    The plight of One World Labs Founder Chris Roberts has been picked to death on social media this past week. There’s all the trouble he’s in with the FBI for his airplane-hacking claims. There’s the hit to his company, which had to let a lot of good security talent go last week. Some shake their heads in disbelief because he apparently spoke to the FBI about his activities without a lawyer present. Others saw this saga as an example of hackers shooting off their mouths without the scruples to back it up. Me? I’m looking at this and seeing a way forward for Chris…

    Some folks in the security industry see me as a member of the “Equal Respect” movement against so-called booth babes at conferences. Not exactly. I certainly respect the opinion of people attached to the cause, and good for them, fighting for what they believe in. But for me, this has never been about equal respect among the genders. It’s never been about whether women who work as booth babes are being exploited sexually. For me, it’s been about holding vendors’ feet to the fire and making them work harder to build an exhibit off the strength of the products. To…

    At RSA Conference 2015 here in San Francisco, there’s a lot of discussion about weaknesses to the electrical and wifi systems aboard airplanes. The discussion often turns to the case of hacker Chris Roberts (@Sidragon1 on Twitter). There’s been a lot of strong reaction to news of Roberts being pulled from a plane for jokingly tweeting that he might mess around with the plane’s electronic systems. There’s a lot of overreaction to this story. The TSA and feds certainly overreacted. But those who hold Roberts up as a victim of government oppression are overreacting, too.

It can only be found in certain materials, and even then it can only be achieved under controlled conditions of low temperatures and high pressures. New research hones in on the structural changes underlying superconductivity in iron arsenide compounds -- those containing iron and arsenic.

    The year 1995 might be 20 years in the past, but we can credit it with tech innovations we still appreciate today. Online webmail? They both got their start in the magical year that brought us more than Windows 95. Looking back on the news reporting of the time, it seems we weren't quite ready for the Internet. MTV News called it "a big-deal technological fad." Rapper Coolio clearly got it, though, asking in the same segment, "If you ain't on the information superhighway then baby where is you?" Good question. Relive the epic year in tech now with this gallery.

    Apple has been in talks about their new update for the iOS 9. The updates of this version apparently plans to bring buit-in transit directions to its native Maps applications. When Apple replaced Google Maps, the Transit directions were completely left out. The Transit were left out back in 2012 as Apple had its own offering as the default navigation application in the iOS 6. Last year, there were rumors that Apple made a late-stage decision to take transit navigation out of iOS 8. The current and new report stated that now it intends to launch it with this year’s update of its mobile OS.

After Twitter bought a completely new start-up to power re-engagement by emailing the best tweets a user might have missed, Instagram has ended up doing something pretty similar, except it won’t be tweets but pictures.   Instagram has started it’s own email digest known as the ‘Highlights’. These emails features a few of the best posts from people the user follows as Instagram believes that it will help them rope back the users who’ve…

    As Section 215 dies a rather noisy death (OR DOES IT? An emergency session convenes on May 31st, a day normally filled with the quiet emptiness of the extended Memorial Day holiday.), the defenders of the mostly-useless surveillance program are out in force, hoping to keep this part of the Patriot Act from expiring. Mitch McConnell's hope for a no-questions-asked reauthorization is as dead as Section 215 (in its original form) appears to be. The USA Freedom Act stumbled in the Senate, falling three votes shy of being brought to the floor. Now, everyone seems to have a "fix" they'd like to…
  • 2 Teen Diablo Players Were Charged, Got Probation For 'Stealing' Virtual Items That Were Replaced

    With some of the recent news stories about how cheating, or other crimes, committed in virtual settings is resulting in real-world legal consequences, I'm sort of surprised the media hadn't picked up on this story before. Apparently back in the summer of 2012, two teenagers, Patrick Nepomuceno and Michael Stinger, ran a scheme in Blizzard's Diablo 3 in which Stinger would send out a link to another player that allowed Nepomuceno to take control of the player's computer, force the player's character to drop all of his/her valuable virtual game items, and then Stinger would scoop them up.
  • How Corporate Sovereignty Undermines Democracy By Irrevocably Binding Future Governments

    Glyn Moody
    27 May 2015 | 1:15 am
    Techdirt has been at the forefront of pointing out the dangers of including investor-state dispute settlement (ISDS) in so-called trade agreements. Indeed, we even helped come up with a new term -- corporate sovereignty -- to make clear that ISDS is really about placing corporations on the same level as entire nations, and giving them a unique power to sue a country for alleged harms before special tribunals. But there's an additional aspect to this, which is explored in an insightful article by Sam Fowles on The Conversation. He points out that although we don't know in detail what the US-EU…

    Normally, when we talk about companies and institutions looking to silence security researchers and their ilk who have tried to expose potential threats, the story ends without tragedy. United Airlines, for instance, went on the attack on Chris Roberts, who may well be an idiot, for exposing in-flight WiFi security concerns. CyberLock decides to go legal on a researcher who had been trying desperately to contact them about a security flaw in a number of its electronic locks. Johns Hopkins, meanwhile, ordered the disappearing of a blog post detailing how its own servers might be compromised by…

    It's fairly common in science fiction for space mining operations to exist, but the reality is that just getting anything into space is pretty expensive -- and there isn't all that much stuff in space that needs to get re-supplied with materials. However, the legal basis for claiming ownership of space resources may be clearing up, and a few companies might actually be driving down the costs of getting a spacecraft into space. The concept of striking a literal gold mine in space might not happen, but the technology to collect resources in space might still be valuable for future space…

    Not even a week into this new lifestyle choice and I’m loving it. In case you missed my previous post on the topic, I finally decided to ditch cable TV and save close to $1500 a year in the process. It looks like a lot of people are doing this now more than ever. I suspect HBO Now was a tipping point for a lot of people. I know it’s one of the things that got me and Kristin talking about it.

Our primary DVR/cable box in our main room died a horrible death of infinite reboots on Sunday, and I took it in to the local Time Warner store to swap it out for a new one on Monday. The new one had a different problem that made it unusable. Tuesday I went back to exchange that box. They told me I was in luck, that their brand new amazing box that lets you record 7 channels at once was available… but, then, the support person assisting me couldn’t get the system to actually let…

    There are thousands of book stores on the internet that will sell you used books for cheap. If their business is in the same country as yours, you can even avail free shipping, or at least, a reasonable shipping rate. Book lovers from the United States and the United Kingdom are typically at advantage here because a large of number of publishing houses and book stores operate from these countries.

    Web Designing
    30 Mar 2015 | 12:20 am
    Responsive web design is no longer viewed as a nice-to-have but as a must-have. It provides sites with a better bounce rate, increase in traffic and an improved user experience, and these are some of the main reasons why businesses are adopting the trend. Let’s take a closer look at some stats to see why a responsive site can make a significant difference in your business. Mobile usage surpassed desktop usage in 2014. It’s no surprise that a large number of mobile web users are not likely to come back to a site that they weren’t able to access easily. This further…

    So, you’re looking for a new PC? It can be a daunting task shopping for a new one as the market is saturated with literally thousands of models, and, if you’re not an IT expert, you may not even know where to begin. The good news is that purchasing a new computer is now so much easier and you can do it online and from the comfort of your own home (no more battling the crowds at the mall and sullen shop assistants).

The first response is usually an Anti-Virus, but with 300,000 virus and malware everyday it’s unrealistic to expect that they can catch them all. Some even do more harm than good as most of these solutions automatically make potentially damaging changes to your PC and are highly dependent to their own ability to detect threats.

    I’ve re-run the following post several times. It’s about what the experts tell us we should do when a major disaster strikes ‘someplace else.’ I make it a point to say “someplace else,” as I know when disaster strikes “someplace near,” you’ll know what to do. My thoughts go out to those who are impacted by the Texas/Oklahoma floods. Over the years, I have written about many natural disasters and the human toll they’ve taken. I believe social media, writ large, make such events more personal to us all — a shared phenomena, even…

    A few days ago, Dave Winer asked the question to those who follow him on Twitter and Facebook, “Why do people like Slack?” Because Dave rarely asks questions for which I have an answer (I know nothing about “nodes”), I thought I’d jump on this one, as Hammock Inc. has been using Slack since last year. So I started to answer with a comment on Facebook, but within a sentence I knew this would grow into a post. First, some context Dave is one of the 12 people who read this blog.  He knows (except when I’m talking about some nuanced rivalry in…

    22 May 2015 | 11:47 am
    Earlier this year, I noted a new design of that supports “takeover” ads. These are not pop-over or pop-up ads that you can click an “x” to remove. These are ads that are actually a part of the background or are, in some graphical and often animated way, an actual element of the page. Today, I thought I saw Amazon come as close as I’ve seen it come to promoting a product using a takeover approach (that wasn’t a letter from Jeff Bezzos). However, upon looking at it more closely, I realized it was a standard size Amazon uses — a…

But I’ve read enough to know that anyone who has ever has faced adversity and challenge and ridicule will recognize something familiar in the story. These brothers were from Dayton, Ohio, and funded the venture themselves. And besides, everyone know that no one would ever fly. Why? Because all of the big thinkers of the day said so.

    In Nashville, a city that is in the midst of an unprecedented building boom, a prime piece of property has not participated in the boom. Instead, it became first, a giant hole and then, one of the most expensive lakes a person can imagine. However, Google Maps isn’t a person and it had no problem imagining it. Google Maps has spent the past several years codifying the creation of the giant lake on West End Avenue. A six year old post on a real estate blog tells the story up to that point. Since then, there has been another big deal announcement, some more digging, and a deal falling…

That’s because when you publish a new article, the old content, that was previously hiding in the archives, shows up in the list of related posts and thus gets fresh exposure to both human visitors and search engines.

It hopes to stand out in two major ways: How it charges customers for service To expand how cellular and wireless connections are delivered Rather than paying a bulk rate for data, as one would with carriers like AT&T and Verizon, users would pay only for data they use. …
  • Mark Zuckerberg Q&A

    17 Apr 2015 | 8:17 am
    Facebook cofounder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg held a question-and-answer session on his website on Tuesday for his users. The questions posed ran the spectrum from the highly relevant to the utterly bizarre; one Facebook user asked him, “If you could be any biscuit, what biscuit would you be?”  Zuckerberg, understandably, chose not to respond to that particular question.  He did, however, address a few hot-topic issues such as net neutrality, his thoughts about whether social media hinder face-to-face communication, and his work with He continues to support Net neutrality,…

  • Free Defraggler by Piriform

    26 May 2015 | 5:28 am
    If your computer takes a while to boot up, access files and open programs you may need to defragment your hard drive.  Defragmenting your hard disk enables your computer to access and open files faster. Although this technology is not new, not all computer users defragment their hard drives. In most cases, computer users won’t defragment because it takes too much time or they don’t know how to do it. What is Defragmenting? Defragmentation is a computer process that reduces the fragmented files in your hard drive. In layman, the process organizes the files in a mass storage device (i.e.

    While the world’s attention to electric powered planes is being focused around quite a unique project, Solar Impulse and its Round The World project, Airbus is quietly preparing to make electric dreams a reality. While Solar Impulse RTW project is now hitting delays as the weather conditions are not allowing for the plane to travel from China to Hawaii, words come from Airbus that they will build a final assembly line for their Airbus E-Fan aircraft in Pau, France.

    With liquid-coolers now readily available in several sizes, there is a wide variety of choice available for enthusiast users looking for a heatsink. Austria-based Noctua — which is widely regarded as the maker of the quietest heatsinks — has a bevy of air-cooled options that go head to head with the latest liquid-cooled offerings, such as Corsair’s Hydro line of AIO heatsinks. The NH-D15 is the current flagship offering, with the heatsink commanding a price of $100. That’s the same asking price of Corsair’s liquid-cooled H100i, which comes with a 240mm radiator.  One of…

    Nvidia’s (NASDAQ: NVDA) GeForce GTX 980 Ti has been eagerly anticipated for some time, and all signs indicate a launch in early June. Videocardz was able to obtain a GTX 980 Ti and post some close up shots which you can see below:   These pictures seem confirm some of the earlier rumors posted earlier about the card. Namely, that it will reuse the the PCB of the GTX-Titan X, sport 6 GB of RAM, and use a 28nm GM 200 core. One thing that earlier rumors got wrong is the CUDA core count. Now it looks like the card will be shipping with 2,816 CUDA cores and 22 SMM units (with 2 being…

    For years now my MacBook Pro has been my primary computer. Now my only desktop computer is my Mac OS X Server. Having a MacBook Pro doesn’t mean that I don’t have a ton of peripherals that I need to connect. The last thing I want to do when I leave or return from a trip is connect a bunch of cables. That’s where a Thunderbolt 2 dock comes in. Although I’ve used a Belkin one for years now, people are always asking for a lower priced alternative. Elgato has created one the fits the bill nicely. For a hundred dollars less than the competition you still get 2 Thunderbolt 2…
  • Why You Should Enable Dual Redundancy on Your Drobo

    Terry White
    5 May 2015 | 9:11 pm
    Like you, my data is very important to me. I have several backups and offsite cloud backups too. In my home office I use a Drobo 5D connected to my Mac OS X Server as well as a second Drobo 5N to backup the Drobo 5D. The whole reason to have a Drobo is so that if one of your hard drives fail your data will be protected and you can just keep working. You’ll probably replace the failed drive with a larger one since larger drives come out every year. The one thing we don’t really think about is what happens if two drives fail at the same time? Normally this means you’re screwed…

This past weekend I did a live broadcast from my sunset shoot at Piedmont Park in Atlanta Georgia. I had over 100 people watching my short broadcast. With Periscope the broadcasts can be uploaded for replay for a 24 hour period. After that they are pretty much history. Sure Periscope allows you to save the video to your camera roll, but that video doesn’t include any of the comments or interactions (hearts) you received during your broadcast.

So how does the mom of two manage to look so fantastic–with barely anything on? It seems Jessica Alba does work out–she simply doesn’t do it in a traditional manner.

The San Francisco typeface has been used on the Apple Watch already and largely has been credited to have been cleaner and sleeker font on smaller displays as compared to Helvetica.

  • SSD Buying Guide: Which SSD is Right for Your Computer?

    7 May 2015 | 6:01 am
    Wondering How to Buy an SSD (Solid State Drive)? The traditional hard disk drive (HDD) has been common in consumer desktops since the time of the first personal computers in the 1980s. HDDs consist of a mechanical arm that seeks across a metal disk to find and store data. Unfortunately, mechanical parts mean that hard drives are often the first components to wear out in a computer, while the rate of data retrieval is limited by mechanical realities. In contrast, solid state drives (SSDs) have no moving parts and rapidly store data using electronic means. Technological advances have finally…

Pinhole glasses are modern technology miracles as they allow people with blurry vision to see clear objects without the need of prescription lenses and glasses. They are an alternative to corrective glasses and can be used to improve vision and sight. The design and shape of pinhole glasses is similar to normal frames, with one small difference, the pinhole glasses have tiny holes in the lenses. The pinholes are made of an opaque sheet that has tiny holes on it, and is attached to frames. They can be worn like normal glasses.

    Meizu, a Chinese smartphone maker, plans on announcing the successor of its 5.5 inch smartphone M1 Note with M1 Note 2. According to a source, M1 Note 2 is going to feature MediaTek’s MT6735 SoC, which will most likely perform lower in performance compared to MT6752 featured in M1 Note, and Lenovo K3 Note (the chipset is much faster compared to Snapdragon 801 present in OnePlus One).

The fiasco stems from the smartphone advertising market’s inherent weakness, from Circa’s inability to catch up with evolving reading habits, and from an insufficient editorial proposition.  In mid-2013, many were praising Circa. The app was kind of unique at the time (see this Monday Note about it); it was built on a clever news flow rearrangement, truncated for faster reading; quotes were pulled out, sources listed apart in a precise manner.

    According to a new study, the total number of knee replacement surgeries performed in the United States shows a significant increase. The study published in the Journal of Bone and Joint Surgery (JBJS) (June 2014 edition) found that the total knee replacements (TKR) had tripled during 1993 – 2009, while hip replacement surgeries doubled during the same period. A higher prevalence of overweight and obesity in the US accounted for about 95 percent increase in these orthopedic surgical procedures, particularly with younger patients being affected to a greater extent.

As SDN architectures are deployed in data centers, local area networks and WANs, network management practices will have to evolve. For instance, SDN may make it easier for cloud administrators to provision network services and connectivity for a new application, but how do you ensure that your new programmable network remains compliant with configuration controls and policies? Is your performance management tool able to model and monitor an SDN controller? If you have…

    There seems to be a direct correlation between how successful business professionals are and their level of impatience. While I am not familiar with any studies on this particular subject, it is simple logic that the most productive employees are those who most frequently demand rapid response to service requests. From my past experience managing and providing IT administrative support, I can attest that these individuals are usually the most irritating—constantly requesting access to new applications, data, and other business resources with expectations of an immediate response.

This idyllic work experience seems to be the realization of Plato’s utopia…or, if you prefer, the world of the Jetsons. Regrettably, however, we clearly do not live in a perfect world. Put simply, while any repeatable process can be automated, not every process is repeatable, so automation is not a practical solution in all cases. This is particularly a problem for enterprises since business productivity is almost entirely dependent on the rapid and accurate…

What I have observed is the fact that everyone focuses on their layer.

    C Finn

    Mad Men has been a favorite show of mine for a while. While I can say I loved the compelling characters and the nuanced writing, often the fun came in the workplace drama. The pitches were enthralling, the challenges and frustrations familiar, and the successes inspiring. The show spanned the years 1960 to 1970, really the golden age of advertising but – the infancy of market research. Market research is not unheard of in Sterling, Cooper, & Draper (and its many incarnations).

  • The Most Common Innovation Mistake to Avoid

    R Bielski
    5 May 2015 | 7:45 am
    One of my favorite questions to ask clients is, “What does the term ‘innovation’ mean to your organization?” Over the years I’ve gotten used to the quizzical looks I get in response, but when it becomes clear it’s not a rhetorical question, it has led to very valuable discussions. My general observation is that most organizations don’t really know what innovation means to them, leading to confusion and misalignment of resources and goals, which severely limits the chances of successfully innovating. Because you can’t measure what you can’t define, failure to align on an…

    Andre Sólo
    27 May 2015 | 2:27 am
    For the last few months news from the SEO community has been centered mainly on whether websites are “mobile friendly” and how much this will help them. If you’re sick of talking mobile, or haven’t gotten your own site up to snuff yet, you may groan to hear that Bing is now launching its own mobile search algorithm. But don’t worry: this one wears kid gloves. Many view the move as copycatting Google, which just finished rolling out its own mobile algorithm. I doubt that’s quite the reason behind it, though. Bing has been working on its mobile search…

But actually, as it turns out, no they don’t. That’s according to a recent survey of consumers’ mobile website preferences. It turns out the most popular way to find information online is on a regular old mobile browser, using plain vanilla mobile websites. Only a tiny fraction of people prefer to use an app. A Startling Change These results are fascinating, because the main point…

The figure comes from an advocacy site run by a European reputation management company. Google has received more than a quarter of a million RTBF requests, and by the company’s count over two thirds of them have been rejected.

    A newly-released academic paper suggests that even without tapping into a GPS hackers can learn your movements through your cellphone with shocking accuracy, according to the Daily Dot. These findings come from Chinese researchers who were able to hack into users’ cellphones and use the device’s accelerometer — the sensor used to track your phone's tilt and motion — to pinpoint where they traveled on a Chinese subway system. The underlying theory of the paper is that smartphone accelerometers can be used by hackers to create a blueprint of motion. That is, subway stations are…
  • How European tech startups get featured at the top of Apple’s App Store (AAPL)

    Jim Edwards

    The rankings in Apple’s App Store can make or break an app development company. If your app is “featured” by Apple’s staff in the App Store — given a special display that most other apps don’t get — it can transform your app into an overnight hit. Apps that don’t get featured must either go viral on their own, spend money on advertising and PR, or otherwise get lucky. There are millions of apps in the App Store, yet only a tiny fraction of 1% get featured, or climb on their own to the top of the lists where users can see them when they open the App Store on their…

Come on, Nexus devices are still part of the family!   According to Android Police, there will be a hard deadline system which would be set up for Nexus…

Let that sink in for a bit. The panel is so freaking thin that it can be stuck to the wall with a magnetic mat. Moreover, it can then be peeled off like a wallpaper. In fact, you can see the images below of it in action. However, don’t get your hopes too high. While it may be much thinner than flagship OLED televisions right now, the panel likely doesn’t…

Frodo is the smallest and most unlikely hero — and even with powerful friends, he’s not guaranteed to win. I’ve heard more than one friend claim (and who can blame them) that their sexual awakening happened around when the exhausted, sweaty Aragorn opened the doors of Edoras in slow motion. Many young people, myself included, started writing our own fantasy stories inspired by the movies. And our throats…

In point of fact, the MILF leadership has expressly affirmed his authority and the binding effect of his acts. So, what’s the big deal? Moreover, the government’s peace panel headed by Miriam Coronel Ferrer, including Secretary Teresita Deles, admitted knowledge of Iqbal’s nom de guerre; in fact, they also know his real name. So, his use of a fictitious name is not an issue in assessing…

  • Why You Should Avoid Buying Games From The Mac App Store

    Tim Brookes
    27 May 2015 | 5:00 am
    The Mac App Store doesn’t hold a candle to the same store used by iPhone and iPad users to guzzle apps, games and in-app purchases.

Despite being a relatively consumer-friendly way of discovering and installing apps, the Mac App Store is fraught with restrictions and drawbacks from a developer’s perspective. It’s thanks to these issues that we recommend buying your games elsewhere.

    By now, you’ve doubtless heard the term “cord cutting”. It’s an imposing name for a simple process: dumping your cable or satellite provider in favor of internet-delivered content. Cord cutters have only recently begun to truly grow in number, and many of us are left to wonder: what exactly should we make of this trend? Depending on who you listen to, cord cutting is either the way of the future and the death knell of traditional TV models, or a passing blip in the radar that industry giants can comfortably ignore. The truth, of course, is a mix of the two. New means of…

Most modern computers, especially those running, say, Windows 8, have screensavers disabled by default, and most people don’t bother to use them in favor of simple lock screens or simply turning the screen off.Screensavers are called such because they were designed to prevent burn-in on older monitors, saving the screen from damage done by the computer being…

    One blurry photo and four weeks later Joe was in hospital. With no idea about what was coming, he seemed very happy in the wobbly rattling hospital cot. Author providedIt is amazing how much can happen in a couple of months. About 10 weeks ago my husband and I started to get the feeling that Joe was favouring his right eye. The more we looked the more we realised that he always had that eye higher than his left. He held toys in his right hand and would roll or sit in a way that allowed his head to stay tilted. I mentioned something to a colleague at work who happened to be having lunch with a…
  • AAS President: Science needs support to build a better Australia

    Andrew Holmes, President of the Australian Academy of Science, CSIRO Fellow &amp; Laureate Professor of Chemistry at University of Melbourne
    26 May 2015 | 3:24 pm
    Australia has a long history of first class science. Willem van Aken/CSIRO, CC BYA shift has occurred in the past year in the way the Australian public, politicians and business talk about science. Scientists are no longer considered to be “precious petals”. We are being taken seriously. We are being heard. At the end of last year we welcomed the reinstatement of the word “Science” into the portfolio of the Minister of Industry and Science. It seems like a small thing, but it’s symbolically significant. And it was followed by further indications from the government that it is…

    Stephen Woodcock, Lecturer in Mathematics at University of Technology, Sydney

    Nobel Prize winner John Nash in 2007. EPA/Money SharmaThe American mathematician John Nash, who died in a taxi accident at the weekend, is probably best known to the wider public through Russell Crowe’s portrayal of him in the 2001 movie A Beautiful Mind. His career in academia was glittering – he was awarded the Nobel Prize for Economics in 1994 and only this year he won the Abel Prize, often regarded as mathematics' own Nobel Prize. Although his achievements spanned a huge number of fields in the mathematical sciences, he will likely be best remembered for his work in the development of…

    Wayne Williams
    27 May 2015 | 6:48 am
    Home security is getting ever smarter, and Piper.nv (the more expensive night vision version of Piper) is an excellent example of this. It’s a smart camera that you access and control via your smartphone (iOS or Android). It displays 180-degree 1080p HD live video, and automatically switches to night vision when the room gets dark.

  • Google might launch two new Nexus phones in 2015, but no tablet

    Google revealed lower revenue from its Nexus devices last year, putting some pressure on the low-cost, high performance program’s future. Fortunately, it sounds like Google is planning to give the Nexus smartphone another try in 2015, according to Android Police. Instead of having a single mobile, Google is planning two Nexus devices this year. One will feature a 5.2-inch display, the other a 5.7-inch display. LG will work on the smaller device, while Huawei will take its first role in the Nexus program with the 5.7-inch model. Both will run Android M, Google’s newest operating system…
  • Pirate ebook websites to be blocked in UK

    Mark Wilson
    27 May 2015 | 4:03 am
    Online piracy is usually associated with music, movies, and software. But the ever-growing popularity of ereaders such as the Amazon Kindle has also led to a burgeoning ebook piracy scene. The UK has been trying to clamp down on piracy recently, and the latest target is a raft of sites offering illegal downloads of ebooks. We've already seen the government would like to restrict access to some online content such as porn, and torrent sites have been blocked at ISP level. Now a High Court ruling means that a number of big ISPs are to be forced to block access to major ebook sites. Ebookee,…
  • Antivirus products for Linux compared

    Ian Barker
    27 May 2015 | 3:50 am
    Though Linux is often seen as being immune to malware it's still important to have protection, partly because Linux malware does exist, even if it’s rare, and partly to prevent the passing on of viruses to more vulnerable operating systems like Windows and Android. Independent testing organization AV-Comparatives has been looking at the leading Linux anti-malware offerings to gauge their ease of installation, features and more. Linux has only around a 1.5 percent share of the desktop market so there are relatively few antivirus programs aimed at home users. Also Linux software is usually…

  • Hydrogen powered HYCOPTER can fly for 4 hours

    25 May 2015 | 12:45 am
    HYCOPTER is the world’s first hydrogen fuel cell powered multi-rotor UAV. HYCOPTER is being readied for a record flight endurance of 4 hours, or 8 to 10 times the average flight duration of equivalent systems today. Unlike any other rotorcraft, HYCOPTER makes use of its frame structure to store energy in the form of hydrogen instead of air, eliminating energy storage weight. With less lift power required, HYCOPTER’s ultra-light fuel cell turns the hydrogen in its frame into electricity to power its rotors.

  • New ‘deep learning’ technique enables robot to learn motor tasks via trial and error

    23 May 2015 | 2:33 am
    UC Berkeley researchers have developed a new deep learning technique that enable robots to learn motor tasks through trial and error using a process that more closely approximates the way humans learn, marking a major milestone in the field of artificial intelligence. They demonstrated their technique, a type of reinforcement learning, by having a robot complete various tasks — putting a clothes hanger on a rack, assembling a toy plane, screwing a cap on a water bottle, and more — without pre-programmed details about its surroundings. The UC Berkeley researchers turned to a new branch of…

  • Windows impiega più tempo per le pass errate. La spiegazione.

    26 May 2015 | 3:30 am
    La Microsoft ha sempre nell’interesse quello di aiutare noi e la nostra sicurezza. Quando infatti prendiamo per definizione l’uso della password, sappiamo bene che esistono una serie di contromisure per evitare che la nostra parola segreta venga indovinata o svelata. E’ anche vero che esistono strumenti capaci di modificare immediatamente la password, ma c’è attualmente una funzione in più che pochi conoscono che interviene per proteggere il nostro account da persone indesiderate.   Da qui viene la domanda effettiva: “Perché Windows, quando sbaglio password, ci mette più…

    22 May 2015 | 9:50 am
    When you are preparing to get a business started, one thing you have to nail down is a business plan. I speak from experience on this. Not too long ago friends talked me into starting a small business. I was so excited with the idea of getting started and being my own boss, that I did not create a business plan. And I suffered because I bypassed this step initially. A business plan is more than just deciding you are going to be the best in your field, it is a game plan to get you from idea to successful business. It's important for e-commerce businesses too.

And it turns out I was at an HP Storage Deep Dive the previous month and they also spoke on the topic. One key aspect of software defined storage is how customers can consume the product.

As a publicity stunt, it probably worked wonders for Zenefits. Yes, I know they are valued at over a billion dollars.

As an avid reader of tech non-fiction, I can’t get enough startup stories behind the story. It’s great to get away from the sterile founding stories that go from idea to success with no interruption. The real stories are always messier, a lot less certain of themselves, and much more interesting. Tony’s book was a little off the beaten path for me since I was neither a customer of Zappos nor someone who followed his career. The…

    Stuart Thomas: Senior Reporter
    26 May 2015 | 10:00 pm
    For a guy at the top of an industry worth billions upon billions of dollars, David Sable doesn’t seem all that concerned with the bottom line. Instead, the global CEO of WPP-held giant Young & Rubicam seems more concerned with telling great stories about his clients and their products. That philosophy might explain why he hasn’t cashed out, despite having been involved in the industry in form or another since 1976. It might also explain why his views on why agencies are so willing to follow those clients into new untapped markets. Having witnessed first-hand the entrance of…

    Stuart Thomas: Senior Reporter

    Lenovo is an anomaly in the PC space. While the market as a whole has struggled with declining growth, the Chinese tech giant has grown both its sales and marketshare. In fact, according to the latest stats from Gartner, Lenovo now owns nearly 20% of the global PC market. It’s managed to get to that position through a combination of smart acquisitions (most notably IBM’s PC division), improvements in the quality of its products, and applying the lessons from its Chinese growth to other emerging markets. Despite that, and despite the fact that PC sales still account for 64% [...]…

  • Verizon to buy AOL for $4.4 billion

    12 May 2015 | 9:12 am
    US telecommunications giant Verizon has snapped up AOL for $4.4bn (£2.8bn), in a deal worth $50 per share at an $8 premium. AOL generates revenues from advertising space on its own websites, such as the Huffington Post, Engadget, and TechCrunch, selling ad space for other websites, and from its legacy dial-up internet business. Verizon is likely looking to create a full service media and communications company, following the example of UK companies such as Sky and BT, where users get their phonelines, internet, and television all through the same provider.

When Google bought YouTube for $.165 billion in 2006, many thought that the search giant had paid over the odd for the service that had not turned a profit. However, then came the iPhone and the mobile revolution, where suddenly everyone had a camera in their pocket at all times, ready to shoot videos of their friends, activities, and anything that happens around them.

  • The Future of Recruitment is not Technology

    20 May 2015 | 2:12 am
    Quite simply, as Greg Savage put it in a recent article, “the future of recruitment is where art meets science. Where technology combines with highly sophisticated human influencing skills”. You could actually stop reading at this point, if you didn’t want to know any more detail behind this, but that’s a bit like a scientist being told the answer to life itself is DNA and then not wanting to know more about how that works. The advances in recruitment technology in the last 5 years have been significant in comparison to the previous 10-15 years. Not since the first…

    OK so the dust is still settling on the General Election and for many this new political dawn will be the start of a new job search…. Online Recruitment will no doubt receive a rush of applications and CV uploads this week as the ex-Party Leaders and ex-MP’s rush to find new employment opportunities. Some might say that the sheltered – and often comfortable – positions they have held in public office will create a significant shock factor when faced with real world job-seeker prospects. Joining the multitude of job candidates, politicians should stand out from the crowd but do they?
  • The Small Business and the Big Skill Gap

    8 May 2015 | 1:45 am
    Understandably, there is a lot of talk at the moment about the growing skills gap across many sectors. We know it exists because the number of live advertised vacancies is growing at a faster rate than the number of the same jobs being filled and when businesses start to suffer, they make loud squeaking and grumbling noises that manifest themselves through the various media and communications channels. It’s the big boys mostly that get heard, but believe me it’s the small businesses that really feel this the most. After all, you think about it, bigger companies with bigger budgets and…

    Hilton Lipschitz
    17 May 2015 | 12:28 pm
    Rust is a project I have been observing for a while now, an attempt to create a new, fast, safe, systems programming language to replace C++, but with better memory safety and a bullet-proof concurrency model. Last week, Rust hit 1.0, and I think I may start testing it out for highly threaded, small and fast calculation tools that I would normally write and fight in C++. If any of you are using it, please let me know what for in the comments. And before anyone points me at Google’s excellent Go language, I am already looking into it to speed up, parallelize and replace a ton of Ruby and…
  • The Perfect Keyboard(s) (for Me)

    Hilton Lipschitz
    8 Mar 2015 | 11:14 am
    I’m not a keyboard snob. But I love using my current keyboards now. Background: I was very happy with the Apple “chicklet” style keyboards and even wrote about it in Not the Clicky Keyboard. There I declared that clicky keyboards were not for me. I was wrong. But I did not know it at the time. A while back, my boss went on a buying bender and purchased a whole bunch of different keyboards, including the DAS and some Microsoft ones. I tried them out too. Neither of us liked any of them, so he returned them all. As a joke, I ordered the CODE keyboard to show that I could buy…
  • One-Key Format Presets in Scrivener

    Hilton Lipschitz
    7 Mar 2015 | 2:37 pm
    I am writing a lot of business documents in Scrivener, and even though it’s the wrong way to do it, I use Scrivener’s format presets (think paragraph styles) to quickly format headings, bulleted lists and paragraphs in each sub-document. This way I minimize post-processing (and the business format is intentionally boring so I do not need any fancy layouts). But it’s a hassle to have to take my hands off the keyboard to click through the Format / Apply Formatting / Apply Preset menu tree or hit the tiny format preset dropdown ¶a to set the current paragraph style.

    Hilton Lipschitz
    31 Jan 2015 | 7:23 am
    It is quite astounding to me that an astonishing amount of work is done and code written without any knowledge, view or understanding of the bigger picture. And yet no-one seems to have taken the time to consider just how remarkably ridiculous this common situation is. How can people be expected to perform at their best and create the best products when they have no clue as to what the big picture or goal is? And yet that seems to be the norm. I started thinking more about this topic yesterday when discussing the work our Quantitative Analysts were doing with them. They were keenly focussed…

  • Splatoon is an online shooter for people who hate online shooters

    Andrew Webster
    27 May 2015 | 7:00 am
    Nintendo plays it safe too often. The company has become known almost exclusively for a small list of franchises. When you buy a new piece of Nintendo hardware, you do it because you'll get to play a new Mario Kart, Super Smash Bros., and (eventually) The Legend of Zelda. Those games are great, but you already know what to expect: it's pretty rare when Nintendo releases a game that's genuinely surprising. But when it does, the results can be incredible, like the wacky life sim Tomodachi Life or small experiments like the black-and-white puzzle game Boxboy. Splatoon is the most surprising…
  • Innovative smartphone design isn’t dead, it’s just taking a really long nap

    27 May 2015 | 6:53 am
    If it wasn’t for Samsung, this would be the most boring year for smartphone design ever. Let that sink in for a moment. The company that perfected the art of reissuing the same insipid plastic design is now the one that’s making the biggest strides forward. That is to Samsung’s credit, for enacting overdue changes in its phones, but also to the discredit of everyone else. Where have all the exciting new phones gone? Did they all perish when Nokia made the historic decision to sell off its mobile business? It certainly feels that way. The new and improved HTC One M9 looks the same as the…

    “His theory is that there’s been a rock opera for every generation since Tommy and The Wall, and the millennials really haven’t had a rock opera. So he hopes it will be Fight Club.” Author Chuck Palahniuk is on the other end of the phone, and I’m struggling to match the calm, thoughtful voice I’m hearing with chaotic novels like Choke, Invisible Monsters — and of course, Fight Club. It’s the day before Palahniuk leaves on a book tour promoting his new collection of short stories, Make Something Up: Stories You Can’t Unread, but at the moment we’re talking about David…
  • World Cup sponsor logos redesigned to protest labor abuses in Qatar

    27 May 2015 | 4:53 am
    Qatar has come under intense criticism in the lead-up to the 2022 World Cup, amid reports that new stadiums and luxury hotels are being constructed under labor conditions that amount to modern-day slavery. Nepalese workers, who comprise about 20 percent of Qatar's migrant labor force, were dying at a rate of one every two days as of late last year, according to The Guardian, often due to extreme heat and poor safety standards. The country's kafala labor system also ties migrant workers to their employers, who can confiscate passports and withhold pay as they see fit. Last week, The…
  • After ending Sean Connery's career, Fox is making another League of Extraordinary Gentlemen movie

    James Vincent
    27 May 2015 | 4:34 am
    The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen is getting a reboot. According to Variety, 20th Century Fox has decided to have another go at adapting Alan Moore's dark and wildly imaginative comic book series for the big screen. Although the comics themselves are much admired, Fox has so far had two failed attempts to get the franchise up and running. A movie adaptation in 2003 starring Sean Connery was financially successful but a bit of a critical flop (it was also Connery's last starring role — though that might just be coincidental), while a planned TV series in 2013 never made it out of…

Many players have attempted cloud gaming to various degrees of success, but no-one has yet cracked it.  Streaming games from the cloud is more difficult than video streaming primarily because every second counts, and a couple of seconds lag can be detrimental to gameplay.
