  • The Holdernesses know they are too old to be on YouTube

    26 Mar 2015 | 8:47 pm
    Love them or hate them, they are headed to a TV near you The Holderness family, also known as that suburban family with a penchant for zany cover songs, managed to spin their viral video success into a full-blown reality TV show. It's the 2015 version of the American dream See also: 15 creative parents who raised the bar in 2014 The show, which premieres Thursday on UP TV, follows Kim and Penn Holderness, and their kids Charles and Lola, as they make YouTube videos and run their company Greenroom Communications.

  • Happy 10th birthday, new Doctor Who

    Chris Taylor
    26 Mar 2015 | 8:36 pm
    Exactly ten years ago Thursday, an old TV show returned to the BBC after a 16-year hiatus. Expectations were low. It seemed, even to many of its fans, like a low-budget relic from another era Its very name recalled wobbly cardboard sets, rubber-masked aliens, scenery-chewing actors and impenetrable scripts filled with sci-fi jargon. There had already been one attempt to revive it — a 1996 TV movie made in collaboration with Fox. The best that could be said about that was the initial plans to have Michael Jackson play the title role came to naught. See also: 'Doctor Who' Explained in 25…

  • West Antarctic ice losses have surged by 70% in the last decade

    Andrew Freedman
    26 Mar 2015 | 7:38 pm
    Around the vast, jagged edges of the Antarctic continent, floating ice shelves act as plugs that hold back the giant glaciers that extend well inland. It is the thinning of these ice shelves that is allowing many Antarctic glaciers to flow faster into the sea, raising global sea levels Scientists have been racing to understand just how quickly these dynamics are playing out, and what it might mean for coastal areas around the world. The news of late has not been reassuring On Thursday, new research was published in the journal Science, which found that ice shelves are shedding volume even…
  • Official March Madness account roasts Twitter's poor spellers

    Sam Laird
    26 Mar 2015 | 7:11 pm
    Wisconsin star Sam Dekker had a huge first half for the Badgers in the Sweet 16 on Thursday night, going for 15 points on a variety of shots and tipping in a teammate's miss at the halftime buzzer to send his squad into the locker room down just two points to North Carolina Twitter users, of course, chattered aplenty about Dekker's stellar effort. But there was just one problem: "Decker" — not "Dekker" — became the United States' trending topic, thanks to some mass spelling errors by fans The official Twitter account of March Madness, it seems, has no patience for poor spellers…

  • FBI Quietly Removes Recommendation To Encrypt Your Phone... As FBI Director Warns How Encryption Will Lead To Tears

    Mike Masnick
    26 Mar 2015 | 8:13 am
    Back in October, we highlighted the contradiction of FBI Director James Comey raging against encryption and demanding backdoors, while at the very same time the FBI's own website was suggesting mobile encryption as a way to stay safe. Sometime after that post went online, all of the information on that page about staying safe magically disappeared, though thankfully I screenshotted it at the time: If you really want, you can still see that information over at the Internet Archive or in a separate press release the FBI apparently didn't track down and memory hole yet. Still, it's no surprise…

    Karl Bode
    26 Mar 2015 | 6:11 am
    As we just got done saying, while the new net neutrality rules are certainly a great step forward, there are probably more questions than answers in terms of just how far the FCC will be willing to go when it comes to policing anti-competitive behavior. For example, while the agency says it will keep on eye on "interconnection" fights, we won't know what the FCC will determine as "anti-competitive" until we see the agency act. Similarly, while numerous countries including Canada, The Netherlands, Chile, Slovenia and Norway all have neutrality protections that outright ban "zero rated" apps…
  • Corporate Sovereignty Provisions Of TPP Agreement Leaked Via Wikileaks: Would Massively Undermine Government Sovereignty

    Mike Masnick
    26 Mar 2015 | 4:09 am
    For years now, we've been warning about the problematic "ISDS" -- "investor state dispute settlement" mechanisms that are a large part of the big trade agreements that countries have been negotiating. As we've noted, the ISDS name is designed to be boring, in an effort to hide the true impact -- but the reality is that these provisions provide corporate sovereignty, elevating the power of corporations to put them above the power of local governments. If you thought "corporate personhood" was a problem, corporate sovereignty takes things to a whole new level -- letting companies take foreign…
  • Unimpressed, UK's Parliamentary Committee For Business Calls For 'Evidence-Based Approach' To TAFTA/TTIP

    Glyn Moody
    26 Mar 2015 | 1:05 am
    Given the magnitude of the effect that TAFTA/TTIP could have on the economies and daily life of both the US and EU, it is surprising that there has not been more analysis of its likely impact. In particular, you would have thought that the governments who favor it would have made great efforts to deploy plenty of evidence supporting the agreement. Instead, the European Commission simply repeats the same set of figures from the 2013 analysis that it commissioned from the London-based CEPR group (pdf), while the US side seems to think even one study is one too many. Analyses from the public's…
  • IOC Forces School To Remove Rings From Crest For Some Reason

    Timothy Geigner
    25 Mar 2015 | 9:01 pm
    Have you thought about the Olympics lately? No? Then I guess you didn't drive past any of the tiny little schools in this itty bitty school district in the Poconos in Pennsylvania that serves a population of almost twenty-five thousand whole people, because, if you had, the International Olympic Committee is quite certain you would have been all, "Oh, look, that must be a school run by the Olympics for some reason." Otherwise, the IOC's pressuring the district to re-draw this district crest would make no sense. You can probably spot the source of the problem immediately. It's those damned…

By some estimates, up to half of all urban North Korean households have an easily concealed "notel", a small portable media player used to watch DVDs or content stored on USB sticks that can be easily smuggled into the country and passed hand to hand.

    Apple has chosen some iconic names in the past, like the "iPod" and "iMac." Apple even managed to take "iPad" -- which was widely panned for evoking a feminine hygiene product -- and transformed it into the popular lexicon of children and Wall Street analysts alike. However, Apple does far more than give big and bold names to products -- it even names key features. For instance, when Apple introduced a sharp new pixel-dense screen, it did something incredibly smart -- it gave the feature a special name -- a "Retina" display.

  • RSA’s Move to Ban Booth Babes

    Bill Brenner
    26 Mar 2015 | 3:33 am
    The language above has been added to exhibitor contracts for RSA Conference 2015. Zenobia Godschalk, a communications practitioner in the security industry and vocal critic of so-called “booth babes” at conferences like RSA and Black Hat, dropped me a line to say RSA added the language to force vendors to stop with the skimpy clothing. It appears the years of blowback over booth babes has had an affect, at least in RSA’s case. In an email, Zenobia said, “We are thrilled to report that RSA has actually changed their language in their vendor agreements this year! It now…
  • What “Hug-Gate” Says About The Infosec Community

    Bill Brenner
    23 Mar 2015 | 4:07 am
    Every once in awhile, someone in the security community says something on Twitter that ignites emotional discussion (some call it drama). This past weekend, it started with a comment about hugs. Someone commented that some security cons involve a lot of hugging and that it makes her uncomfortable. Someone responded with a comment about the benefits of hugs. Then all hell broke loose. Why, the first person asked, do people get offended for not wanting hugs at these events? After all, isn’t it well proven that our industry is loaded with people who suffer from social disorders? Some…

    I find myself sitting in a hotel room in some random city this evening with a glass of wine, several open powerpoint decks and Family Guy on the television. A moment of reflection if ever there was one. It occurs to me that Liquidmatrix just had it’s 17th birthday in February. That is a helluva long time for a website of any description. It has been a lot of fun to see the site grow from an insanely (ugly) basic HTML site to a heavily trafficked site with multiple members either writing or podcasting. I’ve been making a lot of architectural changes to the site and now, I’m going to…
  • A Failed Hacker Unmasking Exercise

    Bill Brenner
    10 Feb 2015 | 5:26 am
    “A ridiculous article which purports to show us the face of a hacker…” — Chris Wysopal, CTO of Veracode, in a tweet The ability of media outlets to create sophisticated images and graphics is light years beyond what it was when I was a young journalist in the 1990s. The technology has spawned a lot of cool projects, like this visual of a botnet from my former employer, The enhanced capability also leads to some truly ridiculous creations. For example, this Secure Thoughts piece on “hackers unmasked.” The writer asks, “Who are the…

    Holly Brockwell
    26 Mar 2015 | 9:56 am
    Reddit user 30dnuu discovered a way to make your Snapchat caption extend over more than one line, like this: Here’s how to do it: 1. Open Notes 2. Insert a space, then press return, and keep doing that for however many lines you want (eg. space > return, space > return, space > return for 3 lines) 3. Hold your finger on the text and tap ‘Select all’ (it didn’t work for us when we didn’t use Select All), then Copy 4. Go into Snapchat, take a photo and go to add a caption 5.

  • Amazon starts offering unlimited cloud storage

    James O'Malley
    26 Mar 2015 | 8:48 am
    Amazon has perhaps signalled the end to worrying about storage space today as it has announced changes to its cloud storage pricing, that will offer unlimited storage for photos and… well… everything else. According to TechCrunch the two plans, which will be available to non-Amazon Prime customers will see unlimited photo storage priced as $11.99/year, and unlimited anything storage priced as $59.99/year. At the moment the same pricing structure hasn’t rolled out to the UK (though it is sure to follow) – we’ll let you know when.
  • Which country has the cheapest mobile data?

    James O'Malley
    26 Mar 2015 | 6:53 am
    Which country has the cheapest data? It turns out if you want to get your 4G fix at the lowest possible price, it might be a good idea to go to India or Vietnam, at least according to The Economist. It seems that the reason for such low prices in India at least is because the mobile market is so competitive. As The Economist notes, there’s eight major players all vying for consumers’ rupees – compared to many fewer major networks in other countries. This perhaps underscores how frustrating it is to see further consolidation over here – with BT gobbling up EE, and Three…

  • Is Mass Effect about to get a HD remaster?

    James O'Malley
    26 Mar 2015 | 5:19 am
    The Xbox One and PS4 could be about to get a re-release of the highly acclaimed Mass Effect trilogy, if one Romanian retailer is to be believed. The, umm, ultra-reliable source is a Romanian online shop, which suggests the game will be coming on the 1st September. Of course, we don’t have any confirmation so take this with as many grains of salt as you deem appropriate. Such a move would make sense – the series was highly praised, there’s a fourth game coming to PS4 and Xbox One at some point, and HD remasters are relatively easy for developers and could squeeze a little bit…

    Apple is set to start shipping the Watch wearable device in exactly one month (on April 24th)- with its flexible plastic-based AMOLED display produced by LG Display.

    Will Schmidt
    26 Mar 2015 | 2:00 pm
    Ancient people used to leave behind petroglyphs when they traveled to new locations, marking fertile valleys, amazing views, or areas of shelter for those that would come after them. Michael Ham and Jacqueline Shen founded Glif as an extension of that ancient belief, brought into the modern day. In a phrase, Glif is a geo-cached Instagram. Users can go out to locations in the real world and mark that they saw a celebrity, found the best sunset view point in the town, or tidbits about a specific area. For example, there’s a McDonald’s in Los Alamos, where Glif is based out of. Unbeknownst…

    I was born at the tale end of 1983. CGI was born just a few years earlier. Here, take a look at some of CGI’s “baby pictures” in the form of this clip from the BBC show Tomorrow’s World. Looking back over thirty years, it’s amazing to think that this was the technological origin of the types of effects we see in movies today. It all started with simplistic effects like this, and it’s gone were very few ever thought it would go. I remember when The Matrix came out in 1999. The effects in that movie were so ground-breaking, so mind-shattering that it’s…
  • Boost Your Online Security with Authy

    Chris Wilson

    When the Heartbleed security exploit came to light last year, I realised just how terrible my password management was. I frequently used the same passwords, kept many for a long period of time, they were often easily to break and I was only using single factor authentication. All these factors combined meant that if anyone had got hold of one of my passwords from this security break (or one of the other recent security issues) then I was in big trouble. I set about changing my security measures and Authy was one of the key apps for that. Before I get into the app review, I just want you to…

  • The Mini TARDIS Lego Lovers Have Been Waiting For

    26 Mar 2015 | 6:15 pm
    The Lego team has carefully reviewed the next generation of ideas and decided that it's time for the Time Lord to become immortalized in Lego! Doctor Who fan Andrew Clark uploaded the set to the Lego Ideas site, which will serve as the foundation for the official release later this year. Lego confirmed the deal with BBC, so it's official: mini versions of the TARDIS, the control center, the Doctor, his companions, and his most evil nemeses are coming. In other great news, a WALL-E set was also approved in this round. Lego hasn't announced the design, pricing, or availability of these sets,…

    26 Mar 2015 | 5:00 pm
    Very important update: The wizard school we first told you about is hosting two sessions in April, both of which are already sold out. The good news, however, is the group behind the project has started a crowdfunding campaign on Indiegogo to host another session in November. Though it's already been fully funded (hooray!), they want to raise even more to eventually buy their own Polish castle and host the ultimate school of dreams. Original story: What happens when you don't get into Hogwarts? You re-create your own version, of course. In the video above, some Polish live-action role players…
  • The Most Spectacular Photo (and GIF!) of Saturn Ever Taken

    26 Mar 2015 | 4:35 pm
    iPhone cameras are good - but they aren't as good as this. NASA's Cassini spacecraft captured this view as it approached Saturn in early 2011. The GIF is so beautiful that it's bubbled back up to the front page of Reddit recently. In November 2014, the spacecraft caught another spectacular moment, this on Saturn's largest moon, Titan, using a visual and infrared mapping spectrometer. The glowing orange you see here is called a sunglint, also known as a specular reflection, coming off Titan's massive sea Kraken Mare. It was captured during Cassini's flyby on Aug. 21, 2014. The spacecraft has…

It’s been suggested that, with the right support, the digital sector could grow seven times faster than overall EU GDP in years to come. Achieving a fully-functioning digital single market could translate into an additional 340 billion euro in economic growth. The incentives for this new Commission to embrace digital technologies…

The basic purpose for the device is to provide you with 2.4- or 5-GHz WiFi Internet access – via an AT&T 4G LTE connection -- when you can’t find free or safe WiFi in the wild. You just need to make sure you’re not somewhere that blocks usage of such devices – a practice frowned upon by the FCC.To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please…

    Wikipedia Yes, Seth Rogen did get the White House's attention late last year with his controversial movie "The Interview" -- about a fictitious assassination of North Korea's leader. But no, the White House has not hired him to run its IT department.The man taking on that job is David Recordon, a 28-years-young veteran of Facebook and open standards efforts such as OpenID. And yes, he does strike something of a resemblance to the actor, as has been pointed out numerous times over the years during Recordon's public appearances, such as when he discussed "Scaling Facebook with OpenSource Tools"…

That's up from 68% in January.The iOS 7 edition of Apple's software for iPhones and iPads now accounts for just 20% of devices. Some have balked at moving to iOS 8 because of the space required to download it, while others have been spooked by buggy releases (I'm aware of at least one iOS 8 holdout in the office who says he doesn't have the space on his iPhone to download the new operating system).To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please…

    T-Mobile is crowing about making a list as one of the 2015 World's Most Ethical Companies. My guess is that voting must have taken place after December, when the FCC announced that T-Mobile would be paying at least $90 for cramming -- that is, "for billing customers millions of dollars in unauthorized third-party subscriptions and premium text messaging services."Then again, it's all relative. AT&T got whacked earlier last year by the FCC for $105M for doing something similar. The State of California also nailed AT&T late last year for almost $24M in a hazardous waste dumping case.

    It would've been hilarious if, in addition to the fine, the US Treasury Department froze all of PayPal's accounts and then refused to answer any of the company's complaints for 180 days. On Wednesday, the online payment service agreed to pay the fine after reaching a settlement with the US Treasury Department. The fine was levied against PayPal based on nearly 500 transactions totaling about $44,000 that potentially violated US sanctions, the Treasury Department said.

    Timothy Geigner
    26 Mar 2015 | 9:07 pm
    I'll miss the Cuban embargo. The easing of relations that it brings with it will likely mean the end of the 1950s-style spy games and crazy plots -- like the CIA plot designed to make a leader's beard fall out. Instead, we've finally decided that the United States is open for Cuban business. And you know what that means: trademark lawsuits! The U.S. Supreme Court recently ruled in favor of a Cuban state-owned company and refused to intervene in a dispute over the “Cohiba” trademark. This is the most recent development in the long-standing rivalry between General Cigar Co Inc., an…

    Good news from California: a bill requiring warrants for Stingray device usage (among other things) has passed out of a Senate committee and is headed for an assembly vote. Among other sweeping new requirements to enhance digital privacy, the bill notably imposes a warrant requirement before police can access nearly any type of digital data produced by or contained within a device or service. In other words, that would include any use of a stingray, also known as a cell-site simulator, which can not only used to determine a phone’s location, but can also intercept calls and text…

    C.K. Sample III
    21 Mar 2015 | 7:17 pm
    I’ve been playing around with music again. For my birthday, I ordered Teenage Engineering’s Factory OP-16 synth, which has been fun to tinker with. Here’s a quick series of patterns I slammed together into a track on it: I’ve been trying to get it to play nicely with my Kaossilator 2, but they don’t sync, so it’s all upon my impeccable timing to get them totally aligned, which is a little difficult. In addition to this little bit of tinkering fun, a few weeks back, some coworkers and myself rented out some studio space and jammed for 3 hours. It was so much…

    The saddest news about Aol. shutting down TUAW today is that TUAW has finally lost the battle against Engadget. Don’t get me wrong. Engadget is great. Weblogs, Inc. was built upon the success of Engadget. Engadget was a blogging machine built by Brian Alvey, Jason Calacanis, and Peter Rojas after Jason successfully persuaded Peter to jump ship from Gizmodo and build a better Gizmodo. The audience followed Peter’s star power as an established gadget and technology blogger, Engadget started out-scooping Gizmodo, and it was a success.

  • Ditched my Cintiq Companion and upgraded my Surface Pro 3

    C.K. Sample III

    So yesterday, I went to the Microsoft Store at the Domain, and traded in my just under a month old i5 128GB Surface Pro 3 for the top of the line i7 500GB model. I did this with funds I made from selling my Cintiq Companion this past week on Amazon Marketplace for ~$78 more net profit than I originally paid for it (thanks to getting it this summer when Wacom was running a summer ~$500 off sale + Cintiq Companion’s being hard to come by currently while everyone awaits the release of the newly announced Cintiq Companion 2). Aside: If you want to sell old gear fast at reasonable prices,…

    I’ve had advertisements on this site forever. I just removed them. There’s no point. In any case, if you like the things I tend to write and do and you want to motivate me to keep doing these things / do them more often, I set up a Patreon page where you can become a patron. Although, I must say, although I like the idea behind Patreon, I don’t like the execution much. It’s very inflexible. Why can’t I set up different types of patronage for different endeavors at different price points? Why is everything either recurring by month or recurring by thing created?

    As I tweeted earlier today, I’m now the answer to life, the universe, and everything years old. Kristin asked me if I felt older on the way to church this morning, and my reply was, “I feel like I’m learning new things recently.” This is my first birthday without a dad and it’s about 6 months since he passed. I was struck oddly today by the lack of him calling me up to sing the silly penny song that he’s sung to me every birthday that I can remember (counting pennies you receive for each year behind you).

  • iPhone Theft Leads to Death of 22-Year-Old Man

    Chance Kinney
    26 Mar 2015 | 12:15 pm
    As far as iPhone theft stories go, this one is probably one of the worst we’ve heard. In South Shields, a bit outside Newcastle, England, a 22-year-old man was robbed of his iPhone 4 by two other men while laying unconscious in the street. The unconscious man died later in the night of hypothermia. The Mirror has the story, which admittedly has a strange and probably under-explained recounting of events. What seems certain is that the two thieves at one point came across the unconscious man, stole his phone out of his pocket, and left him in the street. The report says that the three…

They’re weird and gross, and you can buy them for some reason, which is clearly besides the point here in 2015. The candles look like a couple of rejects from Madame Tussauds, which is about right, because I’d imagine that actual rejects from Madame Tussauds would make pretty awesome candles. These are a bit more small scale, though—about the size of your average, more pleasant candle, the Disgusted and Ears candles come in the form…

    Bithell has become one of a growing number of prominent indie game developers known by name after releasing a hit game. New platforms like Steam and iOS have made it easier than ever for a single developer to create a successful game, and sometimes those games really blow up - developers like Minecraft creator Markus "Notch" Persson have become fast millionaires solely off of a single title. But after the elation of a hit game comes a sudden realization: you need to make another one. This is pretty common among artists; the second album is always the hardest.
  • Microsoft rebrands Universal apps as "Windows apps"

    In the beginning there was the word, and the word was Metro. And then it was Windows 8-style. And then it was Modern. And then it was Windows Store. And then it was Universal. And today, Microsoft has decreed that henceforth these apps - which are all ultimately based on Windows Runtime - will be known as Windows apps. Historically, of course, "Windows apps" (or "Windows programs") referred to standard, Win32-based executables that ran on the Windows desktop. Under the new naming scheme, these Win32 apps will now be called Windows desktop applications. As you can see in the slide above,…

A 256 GB solid state drive standard. A 1920x1080p IPS display, once again standard. ASUS has really raised the bar for what someone can expect in a mid-range device.

But then, in what appeared on Twitter to be a surprise to even its employees, Gigaom ceased operations with a post on its front page saying this: Gigaom recently became unable to pay its creditors in full at this time.

Years ago, while Marissa Mayer was still at Google, an article appeared in the New York Times about the way she tested 41 shades of blue to decide which to use in a navigation bar.

    On December 1 of last year, I was knocked down by a car’s side-view mirror while riding my bicycle home from work (and no, the car didn’t stop but a wonderful good samaritan did). While I was scratched and bruised, the major injuries were invisible: a concussion that wiped out a couple of hours of my memory and what turned out to be–although I didn’t realize it until a couple of months of denial–a chipped-off bone in my left hand that required surgery and a wire that’s still inside my left ring finger. But enough about me. It was my bike I was…

(But I didn’t know the technique had a name like “homepage takeover.”) I couldn’t believe what I was seeing, however, as the ad didn’t just take over the page, it mingled with the page — demonstrating some witty interplay with the 2008-era conventions of a news website.

    Harish Jonnalagadda
    26 Mar 2015 | 8:43 pm
    Intel (NASDAQ:INTC) has shed further details on its second-generation Xeon Phi CPU, known as Knights Landing. The processor features several technical achievements, starting with a 14nm manufacturing process, which is a first in this series. Designed to offer high-performance computing, Knights Landing differs from other server-based CPUs in that it uses lots of low-energy cores to run parallel tasks, whereas offerings from IBM (NYSE:IBM) or Oracle (NYSE:ORCL) use fewer but more powerful cores. Built on Intel’s MIC (Many Integrated Core) architecture with a total of 8 billion…

The custom cooling option is claimed to reduce temperatures by a full 25 degrees Celsius when compared to a reference GTX 980, allowing EVGA to substantially overclock the card out of the gate.

    Dropping out of a perfectly good airplane — that’s something than only those with a few screws loose can do. While I may be quoting the guys from Band of Brothers a bit, the fact remains; it’s hard to mentally justify such a thing and only the brave men and women in the military world are performing such tasks on a weekly basis. Canada had hosted a military exercise called the Maple Flag a few weeks ago. Established in 1978, Maple Flag is one of the largest of such exercises in the world, as it makes use of the extensive Cold Lake Air Weapons Range (CLAWR) which is…

    26 Mar 2015 | 8:58 am
    A new trailer for Halo Online gives us a brief look at the game’s built-in microtransactions, revealing an extensive pay-to-win style structure. While the footage for 343 Industries’ brand new free-to-play PC shooter does indeed look pretty, it showcases something quite troubling that manifests as a cheap cash grab. Halo Online pay to win microtransactions are a thing, and its something I predicted in my recent editorial. Halo Online is set up like Halo: Reach, where you earn credits from matches to spend on armor permutations and such. But in the Russian PC shooter, players…

  • Netflix vs. Hulu Plus: If you could only have one?

    Terry White
    18 Mar 2015 | 1:04 pm
    I’ve been a Netflix subscriber for years and I have also tried a trial subscription to Hulu Plus. The thing that turned me off of Hulu (and still does) is that you pay the monthly fee ($7.99) and yet they still play ads. Also not to mention that during my trial period all the ads were bought out by the presidential candidates of 2012. I just couldn’t take any more. Three years later I’m willing to try Hulu Plus again, but is it worth it? I’d gladly pay more per month to eliminate the ads. Many of you have Hulu, Netflix or both. Tell me why? What if you could only have…

In most cases there isn’t a whole lot that’s new, but companies do sometimes find a way to improve on an already crowded product category. The Simplicam + Closeli is a standard WiFi connected webcam with a nicer design than most. It has a well thought out base/stand as well as things like a 10 foot “flat” USB cable so that you can more easily hide it in your home. This camera can be monitored from…

However, as they started to reveal the specs I quickly began to realize that this wasn’t going to be a product for me. I also had to remind some of my friends that not every product created is for every user. This is why Apple now has three different products in their notebook lineup (MacBook, MacBook Air and MacBook Pro). I’m mostly a pro user and this is NOT a pro machine. Could it be…

It is also rumored, that it was the lukewarm reception of the flagship device this year, which prompted a senior management change at HTC too, with Peter Chou being demoted in the hierarchy of the organization. It looks like HTC is in a hurry to right the wrongs that it did and therefore barely twenty days after the release of the M9, another invite has poured in seemingly for a device called HTC M9+.

    It has hardly been about 5 to 6 months, since Oppo announced the Oppo R5, which at the time of the announcement was the thinnest smartphone in the industry. There was a massive hoopla around the device as it did not include a 3.5 mm headset jack in the device. Next up, out of the labs of Oppo is a device called Oppo R7, which is the first phone with virtually no bezel. We have seen the likes of LG try hard to reduce the bezel around the device in the G2 and the G3, Sharp did something similar with Arquous, though Oppo’s attempt looks by far the best one. The R7 was leaked out in a few…

    Xiaomi is on a roll when it comes to 4G phones in India, becoming the # 1 in terms of shipments of 4G smartphones in India trouncing Samsung and Apple – this is no small accomplishment especially after all the controversies they got into in India.

Who would’ve thought a tiny entry-level phone packing decent specs that can get you thru the day with telephony, housing the elusive vanilla Android OS would come at that price! And within a year of its release, Motorola wants to leverage on the success – in the form of Moto E (2nd Generation). Does it churn the game at the entry level…

So the closest contenders to Redmi 2 are the all new Moto E and the Lenovo A6000.

  • Beware of Airbnb entering the hyperlocal travel guide business

    Frédéric Filloux
    22 Mar 2015 | 12:31 pm
      by Frédéric Filloux  Airbnb has every reason to enter the news services sector – and to threaten a broad range of media/services such as Trip Advisor or Yelp.  Seen through the eyes of travel information publishers, Airbnb holds a dream position: a huge base of 25 million potential readers/users, spread over 34,000 cities in 190 countries, well in tune with the brand’s core product and attributes. For a start, should Airbnb develop a publishing arm, this unparalleled notoriety would spare it tens of millions dollars otherwise required to promote its content services: In the…
  • News Media Should Drop Native Apps

    Frédéric Filloux
    15 Mar 2015 | 12:19 pm
      by Frédéric Filloux When it comes to the most basic form of news delivery, facts keep piling up in a way that makes native apps more and more questionable. Here is why it’s worth considering a move back to mobile sites or web apps…   One of the most shared statistic on mobile use is this one: Applications account for 86% of the time spend b’y users. This leaves a mere 14% for browser-based activities, i.e. sites designed for mobile, either especially coded for nomad consumption, built using responsive design techniques that adapt look and feel to screen size, or…
  • After The First 3 Million AppleWatches

    Jean-Louis Gassée
    8 Mar 2015 | 11:54 am
      By Jean-Louis Gassée We’ll soon know what the AppleWatch is and what it can do…it may take a while to understand why Apple has gone to such lengths to hype the device. Under Steve Jobs‘ leadership, Apple 2.0 obsessed over the marriage of form and function. Starting with Jony Ive’s Bondi Blue iMac, Apple products stood out in a sea of beige and black boxes. But even so, fashion, the providential spawn of this fecund marriage, has always been a by-product — welcome, but not a first-order pursuit With the AppleWatch things have changed: Fashion is now a primary component,…

      by Frédéric Filloux My last column about new valuations in digital media triggered an abundance of comments. Here are my responses and additions to the discussion.  The most revealing part of argument used by those who tweeted (800 of them), commented or emailed me, is how many wished things to remain simple and segregated: legacy vs. native media, content producers vs. service providers, ancestral performances indicators and, of course, the self-granted permission to a certain category of people to decide what is worthy.

    When you start to think about all the things that could go wrong when browsing the Internet, the web starts to look like a pretty scary place. Luckily, Internet users as a whole are getting far more savvy, and better at recognizing risky online behavior.

    When Edward Snowden fled from the United States to a Hong Kong hotel room, and then on to Russia, he took with him a massive cache of documents from the American intelligence establishment. These would form the main part of the Snowden revelations, which ultimately showed the extent to which ordinary people have been spied upon by the services they use, and by their own governments. But it wasn’t just NSA and CIA documents that were leaked by Snowden. He also managed to bring light to the secretive inner workings of the British, Australian, Canadian and New Zealand intelligence…

  • 25 Creative Examples of Ambigram Logo Designs

    Igor Ovsyannykov
    26 Mar 2015 | 10:40 pm
    Sans the plot itself, possibly the most rousing effect of Dan Brown’s Angels and Demons is its mark in the world of ambigrams. The “Illuminati” ambigram in the book (and movie) launched thousands of online searches about the nature of the design. The great thing about this typographical creation is its cool factor. You can’t see an ambigram design and not think of it as “cool” or “awesome.” Because it is. When you can read word/s the same way upside down, or in any orientation or POV, it’s remarkable. It’s genius. Not only is the structure of the design impressive, an…

    23 Mar 2015 | 10:40 pm
    With the growing interest of people in DIY designs and projects in social media platforms like Pinterest, the monogram design is rampant as ever. You’ve probably seen a monogram before even if you’re not aware of the design’s official name. Monogram is a pattern, design, or concept where two or more letters are combined or overlapped to create one distinct symbol. Think of Louis Vuitton’s logo, one of the most iconic of all monograms. The prevalence of monograms isn’t surprising at all since the design dates from ancient history. The ancient Greeks first used it, renaissance…
  • Photos of Futuristic Yugoslavian Monuments by Jan Kempenaers

    Igor Ovsyannykov
    22 Mar 2015 | 10:20 pm
    Yugoslavia isn’t just famous for its tumultuous past that is filled with wars and political mobocracy. If you’re a fan of odd-looking art, you’ve probably heard of Yugoslavian monuments. These works of art are incredibly off-the-wall when it comes to design that a great deal of people describe them as futuristic monuments. I personally picture them as monuments you can find in Vulcan, of course that is if Spock’s home planet is real. Alas, I digress. The peculiar-looking Yugoslavian monuments were commissioned by the country’s former president Josip Broz Tito. The thing that makes…

Therefore, critical medical support requires frequent personal assessment and manipulation by a trained practitioner. As per 2012 statistics, there are approximately 6000 ICUs in the United States,…

    Dental coverage is a must for kids as it is necessary for them to visit dentists periodically since even a small cavity may lead to big health problems later. Though most children get coverage through their parents’ employer-based health insurance or the government-funded Children’s Health Insurance Program and Medicaid (CHIP), the American Dental Association says that around 10 million children aged 2 through 18 had no dental insurance in 2011. In order to help people not eligible for Medicaid and having no workplace coverage, health insurance marketplaces were opened last year.

The result could be something like Cyanogen, which is available to pretty much anyone with an Android device and some spare time. Don’t forget, Microsoft is reportedly set to make a big investment in the company behind Cyanogen. Maybe part of that deal includes help developing this new... Read the rest of the story at

  • SAO – not just another acronym for SAM…

    Jason Keogh
    25 Mar 2015 | 8:34 am
    So – we’ve created a new acronym for Software Asset Management (SAM) in 1E. We’re calling it SAO – Software Asset Optimization. Why yet another acronym? And why “Software Asset Optimization”? Because ITAM and SAM have always, to some degree, frustrated me. It is crucial to manage your IT Assets (which is the stated aim of ITAM and as a subset – SAM). Often ITAM and SAM tools vendors equate “manage” with “count” – that’s just not good enough. 1E is not developing a new suite of tools which merely count installs or licenses – SAO is about active optimization –…

    There may be one name on a product – the company name – but under the lid a team of individuals ensured they could deliver that product with pride. In our global markets a team comprises a collection of individuals spread wide across the organization, across the globe. Men and women who daily measure their own contribution towards a collective goal, until the final product is delivered to a waiting market. Disappearing is the era of the solitary contributor who produces a work of genius, a slice of ground-breaking technology all on their own, and good riddance to that era. We are…

  • 5 reasons why IT Asset Management is crucial for Enterprise IT

    Peter Beruk

    Information Technology cannot be just about keeping the lights on, it must be a fundamental driver for business success.  Forrester Research reported that 72% of budgets are doing nothing more than keeping lights on (sustaining the business, not changing or transforming the business). Is it that CIO’s like the status quo, or are they not enabled to implement standardized processes into their operations to turn them into productive, agile operations? Software licensing used to be easy. One simply had to have a single license for every PC a product was installed on. PCs were easy to count as…

    20 Mar 2015 | 7:43 am
    Joomla 3.4 was released last month and just as with every major Joomla release there were beta and release candidates made available for testing over the preceding weeks. Those special releases are made specifically for Joomla developers to use to both test the changes in the upcoming release AND to check that their own code is still working as intended. Despite this after every release we see the same extension and template developers wait until AFTER the release before they even look at the code and test their own work. Then they are in a mad panic and rush to release updates. Meanwhile…

When you take a high resolution digital photo and simply resize it for your web site you are NOT compressing it. Or if you are, then you are probably not compressing it as much as you could be.

For IT managers a good, simple definition for RISK may be from the Open FAIR model which states: “Risk is defined as the probable frequency and magnitude of future loss”   Risk management should follow a structured process acknowledging…

Certain business cultures feel that these activities are an invasion of privacy or are distrustful. However, in today’s Internet connected, data driven world, having specific information or data means the difference in being a market leader and being out of business.

Even the simplest and most “personal” of them, like personal planners, address books and to-do lists, enable users to put their data in the cloud, share them with others and access them using a myriad of devices and interfaces.

As some of the fourteen million spam bots and half-dozen Russian hackers that still read my blog know, my very first paid work as a writer was for a subversive publication that may have resulted in the collapse of the then still semi-apartheid government of South Africa. Yes, gentle readers, for in that publication, there were pictures of women. Scantily clad ones, that usually bared their breasts! (Yes! Yes, gasp! Gasp away and clutch at your pearls in scandal, but such is the life of the fearless destroyer of…
  • Top 10 Books to Un-Borg

    14 Nov 2013 | 7:02 am
    I have been thinking of doing this for a long time. Actually I plan to extend it to 100 books that I think are a good foundation for anyone to read in order to have a more rounded, more able, and most of all a more independent way of thinking than just unconsciously going along with the greater reactive biomass that is carefully being shaped by TV and other mass media, including this here Internet. Just to be clear then, my criteria for whether a book makes it into my top 100 is primarily based on the practical, real effect it has on you awakening from the dreary, matrix-like slumber induced…

You will note from the image at the top of the post, taken in mid June, (the 12th to be precise) the DANGER that citizens, in their zombie-like stupidity could be exposed to and big brother government is SAVING LIVES and no doubt THINKING OF THE CHILDREN. By the way, know that I took that picture with the same sense of civic duty that the government itself has. In…

  • On Concept Writing: From What’s Now to What’s Next – The Evolution of Concept Stimuli

    Paul Crowe
    16 Mar 2015 | 8:11 am
    In my last article, I shared some R&D conducted by Ipsos on how consumers consume concepts. The results indicated that consumers typically do not consume traditional concepts in a linear fashion: they almost always start with the image and then the headline, moving to the insight and then price (typically at the bottom of the concept) and then moving on to the body of the concept. This result was striking, but also not very surprising. After all, as an industry we typically expose consumers to the entire concept all at once – essentially letting them consume the concept in any order…
  • It Takes a Village: Driving Innovation with Online Communities

    Eric Holmes

    They say it takes a village to raise a child, and now that I have a rambunctious one year old of my own, I completely agree. But as a researcher, I could not help but think this is also true of developing an innovation. It takes a helping hand and input from hundreds, if not thousands, of individuals to bring an idea to life. As such, many marketers are building their own innovation villages in the form of online communities to help them through the process of nurturing their innovation from infancy to the marketplace.

All paid for using mobile payments apps on your smartphone. No more pulling credit or debit cards out of your wallet. In fact, you don’t even carry a wallet any more. It’s just you and your phone.

    Apple Pay is a revolutionary payment system. I have used it a couple of times since it has launched and just love the way it has been implemented. It works just as it was shown in the keynote. You basically bring your iPhone close to the payment terminal which is waiting for payment and your cards stored in the passbook will automagically appear on your screen. If you have your finger already on the Touch ID, it would just go ahead and authorize the payment with your default card. The little chime and a subtle vibration in addition to the short animation on the screen let you know that the…

What’s in a MADA? The case started with Google’s MADA, or Mobile Application Distribution Agreement. This is the set of terms and conditions it requires of hardware manufacturers making devices that use the Android operating system.

  • The antitrust ruling against Microsoft was the top of the dot-com boom. History could repeat itself with Google

    Matt Rosoff
    26 Mar 2015 | 6:08 pm
    The tech industry is in a boom right now. We know that every boom has its bust. But the hard part is figuring out when the turn will happen. You're probably familiar with this chart. It's the historical tech-heavy NASDAQ index from its inception to the present date: See that quick rise and fall? That was the dot-com boom and bust. (There are other more accurate measurements of the total value of tech companies, but this is a pretty good proxy and one that's commonly used, so let's run with it for the sake of argument.) If you zoom in a little bit on the peak of the dot-com craze, between…

    26 Mar 2015 | 4:00 pm
    By the time Nadia Shouraboura left Amazon in 2012 after more than 8 years at the company, she had risen through the ranks into one of the most important positions: VP of technology, in charge of all its supply chain and fulfillment platforms globally.  She was also a member of CEO Jeff Bezos' elite "S-Team" of direct reports.  Once of her most memorable and impactful moments happened right after she was first hired, though. Not long after Shouraboura joined the company in 2004, she made a huge mistake. When a shipment of new products came in, she instructed them to be put up on the…

    Facebook just can't stop giving away its secrets for free. At this week's Facebook F8 developer conference alone, the social network released free tools to help mobile developers build better interfaces, and for Android developers to understand how their apps are being used, and for making apps crash less when they run out of memory.  In the past, Facebook has given out technologies it invented like Cassandra, used by Apple, Netflix, and many more tech companies to manage their tremendous and growing amounts of data.  The Facebook team shrugs off any concerns that giving away this…

Investing in the right tools to monitor a brand’s performance not only prepares that company in advance of a crisis, but can also identify new opportunities for growth. “Now, more than ever, you have the ability…

  • Desarrollador consigue que Android Wear funcione con el iPhone

    21 Mar 2015 | 12:46 pm
    Una de las desventajas de Android Wear es que el sistema operativo sólo es compatible con los dispositivos con Android 4.3 o superior, y obviamente, es incompatible con los dispositivos iOS. Viendo cómo el sistema operativo depende de las APIs de Android 4.3+, está bastante claro que a menos que Apple proporcione APIs similares en iOS, no será posible utilizar un reloj inteligente que ejecute Android Wear con un iPhone. Sin embargo, parece que el desarrollador MohammadAG, popular por algunos de sus módulos Xposed, ha conseguido que Android Wear funcione con el iPhone. Un breve vídeo…

    When Edward Snowden fled from the United States to a Hong Kong hotel room, and then on to Russia, he took with him a massive cache of documents from the American intelligence establishment. These would form the main part of the Snowden revelations, which ultimately showed the extent to which ordinary people have been spied upon by the services they use, and by their own governments. But it wasn’t just NSA and CIA documents that were leaked by Snowden. He also managed to bring light to the secretive inner workings of the British, Australian, Canadian and New Zealand intelligence…

    If you are planning on doing a clean install of Windows on your PC, you will more than likely have to reactivate Windows, either online or over the phone. Normally, the online reactivation will work just fine as long as the hardware on your computer hasn’t changed very much since the OS was originally installed and the version of Windows is exactly the same as the version that shipped with the computer. If you have swapped out hard drives, graphics cards, memory, etc over time, then you might run into problems when you try to reactivate Windows online using the same product key. In…

So why would you ever want to hide text in a Word document? Well, one reason would be if you wanted to print out two different versions of the same document, but didn’t want to create two separate files. In this case, you could hide some text, print the file and then print the document again, but choose to print hidden text in the printing options dialog. In this article I will show you how to…

The registry contains all the configuration settings for the operating system, programs, services, components and pretty much everything else. Everything from the size of the icons to the color of the taskbar is stored there. The registry is made up of millions of keys and values. You can think of keys as folders and values as the data stored inside the folders. In the registry editor, keys actually look like folders and values are what hold the actual settings. Each key…

It breaks the usual data capacities of pendrives to offer a whooping 256GB pendrive. As time grows, so does the amount of data we need to carry with us.

Anyone who buys a new pen drive decides to go for a minimum 16GB pen drive today considering the very small price difference from the 8 GB ones. Kingston also has 1TB pendrives but not much affordable for all, but this one is to some. We made a…

    Observations of the dusty cloud G2 as it approaches and then swings around the supermassive black hole at the centre of the Milky Way. ESO/A. Eckart, CC BYIt was billed as the biggest event in the galactic centre since we discovered that the Milky Way harboured a supermassive black hole. The G2 gas cloud, discovered in 2011, was found to be heading directly towards the black hole. Given the estimated mass – a few Earth masses of gas – there was no way it could possibly survive the passage intact. Immediately theorists set to work computing the likely shredding of the cloud as it reached…

  • How safe is air travel today?

    According to the statistics, modern airliners are safer than ever. John/Flickr, CC BY-NC-SAIn light of the news of another tragic airline crash, and following in the wake of several other high profile air disasters, it might be natural to ask whether air travel is becoming less safe. In fact, according to the numbers, air travel is safer than at almost any point in the history of commercial flight.

  • Amazon brings unlimited storage plans to the cloud

    Alan Buckingham
    26 Mar 2015 | 9:41 pm
    The business of cloud storage is a popular one these days, with big players like Microsoft, Google, Amazon, Dropbox and countless others in the game. In order to compete it takes a combination of features and pricing, both options that big players can more easily provide. Now Amazon is taking its offering up a notch with "unlimited" storage and reasonable prices. Unlimited storage isn't free, but it's fairly reasonable. Expect to pay $11.99 per year for photos (free if you're a Prime subscriber) and $59.99 for everything -- photos, music, files and more. "Most people have a lifetime of…

    Microsoft's Surface Pro 3 is already a legendary computer, offering wonderful performance in a versatile package. Even though the hybrid computer is overdue for a refresh, it still competes with, and outperforms, many newer machines. Even Apple's comparably priced new MacBook is far less powerful. Today, Microsoft releases an update that improves the Surface Pro 3. Not only does it fix existing issues, but it adds new functionality. If you own the computer, you should be excited.

  • Google has a new data compression extension for Chrome -- do you trust it?

    Mark Wilson
    26 Mar 2015 | 6:38 pm
    A couple of days ago Google launched a Chrome extension that compresses web pages. This is a feature that has been available for the iOS and Android versions of Chrome, but now it has hit the desktop. It's something that will be off interest to people whose ISP puts data caps in place. Launched on March 23, the Data Saver extension is currently in beta (come on, this is Google… what did you expect?) and it helps to "reduce the amount of data Chrome uses". This might sound appealing, but it does mean that your traffic is routed through Google's own servers. Do you trust Google enough? Using…
  • Apple Watch's potential profits are scary

    Joe Wilcox
    26 Mar 2015 | 5:34 pm
    Behind buying polls there are as many questions as answers, like: "How many people saying they will buy X, really will?" Oftentimes the number wanting something and actually getting it are usually much less than tallied results indicate. Considering those caveats, our Apple Watch buying poll nevertheless illuminates how the device could be hugely successful even from a small number of sales. I do mean big. Among the more than 1,100 respondents, as I write, 19 say they will buy Apple Watch Edition, which price ranges from $10,000 to $17,000. Assuming they all purchase and do so on the cheap,…

Then again, as far as man, the gender, is concerned, we usually have more than one best friend. And these other ‘best friends’ may include foosball, all sort of ball games, automobile, pretty ladies and the list just go on, and so when it comes to decorating a man cave, parts of the man’s love have to be in it, like for example, a bar with a full complement of beer, wine and everything alcoholic, and soon you can spruce up…

However, the Gas Scale here stands out as one that not only let you in on how much gas is left inside the tank, but it also doubles as a life-saving gas leakage detector. Since gas such as LPG is heavier than air, it tends to sink and that’s where Gas Scale’s built-in gas detector picks up the leak. It then pushes this alert to your smartphone via Bluetooth LE, so you can take appropriate action before it is too late. Of course, the gas detector is only as useful if it is used indoor, or…

  • Dangerous glass fibers in cigarettes worsen lung damage for smokers

    19 Jan 2015 | 7:58 pm
    Shocking new research reveals that a specific type of lung cancer many smokers develop comes from tiny tears in their lung tissue caused by microscopic glass fibers, also known as glass wool, found in many conventional cigarette filters.

Di qualcosa dovranno pur mangiare, certamente, ma esistono altri siti che distribuiscono lo stesso programma, con più Adwares ficcati dentro e soprattutto il compenso non viene devoluto ai programmatori originali ma al sito “truffaldino” stesso.

  • All flash storage performance testing

    24 Feb 2015 | 1:21 pm
    There are some serious problems with measuring IO performance of all flash arrays with what we use on disk storage systems. Mostly, these are due to the inherent differences between current flash- and disk-based storage. NAND garbage collection First off, garbage collection is required by any SSD or NAND storage to be able to write data. Garbage collection coalesces free space by moving non-modified data to new pages/blocks and freeing up the space held by old, no-longer current data. The problem is NAND garbage collection takes place only after a suitable amount of write activity and…

  • The Future of 4K TV

    Sarah Lamb
    31 Oct 2014 | 3:00 am
    Televisions have come a long way since 1926 when Scottish inventor John Logie Baird publicly demonstrated his new invention. The first colour broadcast took place 50 years ago on 1st Janurary 1954, however the technology wasn’t cheap, and so many people didn’t have access to a colour TV until the mid to late 1960s. 4K […]

  • MVF: The Importance of Not Over-investing

    Joe Kinsella
    21 Mar 2015 | 10:24 am
    The Lean movement has made everyone aware of the importance of a feedback loop in driving the success of businesses, products and features. By driving tight and iterative Build-Measure-Learn loops, organizations can limit the risk of their investments and not overcommit resources toward initiatives that either fail or do not deliver the required results. I have blogged in the past on the importance of the Minimum Viable Feature (MVF) in my company, but recently noticed we started to drift from our roots in one important aspect: over-investing in trying to build great software behind our MVFs.
  • My Entrepreneur Not To Do List

    Joe Kinsella
    17 Mar 2015 | 2:43 pm
    As entrepreneurs of early stage businesses, we all aspire to help our companies navigate the turbulent waters from idea to product market fit. But once you've achieved product market fit, a new and sometimes harder challenge often arises: scaling the business. During the scaling phase, an upside to being an early member of the company is you can play a lot of roles that add value to the organization. The downside is that if you played all these roles, you will either burnout or make yourself an impediment to scale. I've been doing a poor job lately managing my To Do list. As a reminder I…
  • Save $140 Per Month On Verizon Family Plan

    Joe Kinsella
    6 Mar 2015 | 8:20 am
    While there are many personal services and products I value and pay for, there are a few I do not. My Verizon Wireless service falls in the later category. While I value being able to have voice and internet connectivity wherever I go, I will confess to believing this should be a commodity in 2015. Unfortunately contrived carrier plans, artificial restrictions on device portability, and the financing of devices through plans have slowed the commoditization of wireless service. Nothing makes this more clear than paying $240 per month for a family plan for myself, my wife and two boys that…
  • Confessions of a Technology Profiler

    Joe Kinsella
    8 Feb 2015 | 2:52 pm
    After years of being in the closet, I'm coming clean: I'm a technology profiler. In my never ending search for good engineers, I instinctively form opinions of the quality of someone's software talent based on nothing more than what I see in their profile. It's like a facial tic I can't get rid of. For example, you say: "I write ASP.NET code to SQL Server in a big company", and I think: "No freaking way can you build complex software in a fast moving startup." Or you say: "I'm writing the multi-threaded backend of a cloud-based distributed system in a startup using Haskell", and I think:…
  • 5 Requirements Not Found In My Job Descriptions

    Joe Kinsella
    27 Jan 2015 | 5:43 am
    I get asked on a regular basis what I’m looking for in engineers. I think most people are expecting the answers found in a typical job description - e.g. CS degree or equivalent, 4+ years commercial software experience, work experience with modern language (i.e. Python, Ruby, Scala), multi-threaded programming, and so on. But there is a fundamental truth of hiring that often gets lost in traditional job descriptions: great engineers are not defined by their degree, number of years experience, or the technologies they work with - but by their core abilities / traits. Here are the 5 abilities…

He then combined these selfies into an incredible timelapse video that chronicles his entire journey in the span of just under five minutes. Continue reading...

You might say that’s good isn’t it? And indeed there’s nothing wrong in doing a good job. But, with further discussions it appeared a few recruiters have more of a role than many colleagues in the same business have acknowledged. Namely the choice of the right candidate(s) can influence an organisation’s culture without many even knowing it. Is that a real change, or a change of emphasis? Here’s…

    For many businesses, finding the right sales staff is one of the most difficult aspects of building a successful sales team, they just don’t know how to hire great salespeople. In my travels as a sales motivational speaker, the refrain, “If only I could find the right people for my business” is common. It seems that even with years of experience and huge business success, many sales directors and business owners feel that locating, assessing and hiring top salespeople is a difficult task. Indeed, it has more than once been described to me as similar to pinning the tail on the…

    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…

    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.

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

But the new tech doesn't just let Apple offer more menu options — other app developers can use the increased fidelity of the new trackpads too. Drawing app Inklet becomes the first piece of third-party software to make use of the new technology.

Simon is the interviewee, and speaks frankly about the nation's policing problems, from the drug war to over-incarceration.
