    30 Jul 2014 | 1:39 pm
    The Amazon Books Team has provided specific details about e-commerce giant Amazon’s objectives regarding e-book pricing. The major goal that Amazon has is to reduce e-book prices. Many e-books are selling for $14.99 or higher, which, according to the company, is “unjustifiably high”. E-books, after all, require no printing and no warehousing or transportation costs, among other things. E-books can’t be resold as secondhand items, so they provide even less value to the… Continue reading Amazon talks about goal of lowering e-book prices Related posts: Amazon confirms Hachette book…

    The all-American sportsbike is back, and this time Erik Buell doesn't have a heritage cruiser company looking over his shoulder telling him how to build it. The 1190RX is the first mass-production sportsbike out of the new EBR factory in Wisconsin, a 185-horsepower, torque-stompin', slightly quirky racer with its eyes firmly focused on World Superbike contention. But does that equate to a good road bike? We spent a couple of weeks with the RX to find out. ..

I wouldn’t use it, for example, when I’m teaching my WordPress development class.Which is why I was taken aback at the liberal use of slang terms for men over at Code School, the online web technologies academy where I’m currently on the JavaScript track.

    Buick owners enjoying their car’s built-in LTE in a photo provided by GM Last week, General Motors invited me to a press event at which it showed off some new Buicks. Normally, such events involve driving new cars. But when we hit the road during this one, I willingly sat in the back seat and fooled around with my phone and tablet–because the primary purpose of the event was to demonstrate the 4G LTE broadband and Wi-Fi hotspot features built into the cars. Across its brands, GM is being particularly aggressive about rolling out in-vehicle LTE connectivity. Most Buick models,…

    20 Jul 2014 | 11:52 am
    They weren’t the best thing he ever did, or the one which we’ll cherish the most. But with the sad news of the passing of James Garner, it’s worth pausing to remember the commercials he did in the late 1970s and early 1980s for Polaroid. And–this being Technologizer–it’s how we’ll memorialize him here. When it came to celebrity spokespeople, Polaroid wasn’t stingy: Laurence Olivier did the first ad for the SX-70 camera, and Danny Kaye touted the ill-fated Polavision instant movie system. Hiring James Garner was a similarly classy move, but the…

So in a way, it’s appropriate that the proprietary software which the studio used to animate it, Emo, had a lot of history behind it. Emo’s origins go back to the 1980s, an era in which computer graphics were very different than they are today, and DreamWorks didn’t even exist. It was created by Pacific Data Images, the…

As a heavy technology user going back to the early 1980’s, my own computing journey took me through various PC operating systems, applications and dozens of hardware devices and platforms that delivered a lot of functionality but, in most cases, were proprietary to each platform with data localized and hard to keep straight.

You know, people like the actress Alyssa Milano (remember Who’s the Boss?

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

As my role of CMO at Zula, I am fortunate to work for a company that gets it. The company understands what too many companies still do not, that push marketing, self promotion, and spammy aggressive tactics simply do not work.

It turns out there are other circumstances in which Excel (and, to be fair, presumably other spreadsheets) can give incorrect results, but they are unlikely to be encountered in typical everyday tasks. However, in the specialized world of bioinformatics, which uses computers to analyze data about genes and related areas, careless use of spreadsheets can throw up a significant numbers of errors, as this paper in BMC…

    Time can heal some wounds, and technology can sometimes speed things up a bit. But regenerative medicine could really help to improve our health if we can re-grow body parts on demand. Here are just a few links on getting our bodies to heal themselves. Scientists have found lingering olfactory receptors in unexpected places -- such as the skin -- where these receptors may play a role in healing processes. Sandalwood oil which is often used in aromatherapy can bind to skin receptors and trigger skin cells to divide (and possibly help repair damage as part of a healing mechanism). [url] Several…

     Smart bulbs, like the ones that come with the Philips Hue lighting system, are pretty cool… until you realize that physically flipping the switch is sometimes faster than unlocking your phone, opening the right app, and controlling the light through your mobile device. But what if you could achieve the same connectivity-based cool factor with the speed and ease of simply flipping a switch? Read More

  • iPhone 6 Release Rumored For 14th October

    Tyler Lee
    31 Jul 2014 | 3:36 am
    Assuming the rumors are correct, Apple is expected to launch the iPhone 6 in September, but what about its release? When will that be? Well according to the folks at MacRumors, they claim to have been tipped off by a source who has revealed that the iPhone 6 is expected to see a release on Tuesday, the 14th of October. What this means is that Apple could be announcing the iPhone 6 towards the end of September. Usually with iPhone releases, Apple takes about a couple of weeks after its announcement before it releases the product, so based on this information, late or early October will most…
  • BlackBerry Strong Is A Slider Concept Of The Passport

    Tyler Lee
    31 Jul 2014 | 3:34 am
    In terms of smartphone designs, the BlackBerry Passport is an odd one. We won’t know how well it handles until we actually try it for ourselves, but for now, the 1:1 aspect ratio is a little weird. BlackBerry claims that the screen size will allow more contents to be displayed, and based on previous comparisons, we’re inclined to agree. That being said, if BlackBerry were to design a slider version of the BlackBerry Passport, is that something you might be interested in? Well a recent concept has surfaced for a device called the BlackBerry Strong, which is essentially the slider version…
  • Tor Claims Network Was Breached, University Researchers Suspected

    Tyler Lee
    31 Jul 2014 | 3:05 am
    For those unfamiliar with Tor, it is basically a service in which Internet users can use to cloak themselves in a shroud of anonymity. While it does sound shady (and rightfully so, given that many of Silk Road’s users were using Tor), it does have more noble purposes, such as protecting the identities of journalists/reporters who need to find out information without giving away their identity. That being said, it seems that even Tor is not safe from hackers, according to a recent report in which Tor claims that earlier this year, outsiders had breached its network in an attempt to learn the…

  • ICQ Instant Messenger Sees An Increase In Users For The First Time

    Tyler Lee
    31 Jul 2014 | 3:03 am
    We’re not sure how many of you guys remember, but back in the day, there was an instant messaging program by the name of ICQ. The messenger granted users identification numbers in which they could use to identify themselves and search for other users, and it made that distinct “uh-oh!” sound when a message was received. Now in case you didn’t know, ICQ is still alive and well as it was bought over by Russian billionaire, Alisher Usamanov who owns Mail.ru Group back in 2010. You’re probably wondering, why would anyone buy an outdated messenger app? Well apparently there was still a…

    30 Jul 2014 | 1:39 pm
    The Amazon Books Team has provided specific details about e-commerce giant Amazon’s objectives regarding e-book pricing. The major goal that Amazon has is to reduce e-book prices. Many e-books are selling for $14.99 or higher, which, according to the company, is “unjustifiably high”. E-books, after all, require no printing and no warehousing or transportation costs, among other things. E-books can’t be resold as secondhand items, so they provide even less value to the… Continue reading Amazon talks about goal of lowering e-book prices Related posts: Amazon confirms Hachette book…

    John P. Mello Jr.
    30 Jul 2014 | 2:53 pm
    Old tricks that have helped hackers penetrate computers for months or longer worked again last week at Goodwill and Stubhub. Taking a page from the gang that pillaged payment card and personal information from Target last year, hackers clipped payment card information from an undisclosed number of Goodwill Industries International customers. As they were in the Target attack, it's believed point-of-sale systems were compromised at Goodwill, which has 2,900 U.S. retail locations that collect and sell donated clothing and other goods.

    Government snooping on Americans would be curtailed under a bill introduced Tuesday in the U.S. Senate. The measure, sponsored by Senate Judiciary Chairman Patrick Leahy, D-Vt., would ban bulk collection of domestic information, limit the scope of searches by government agencies, and add transparency and reporting requirements. Further, it would reform procedures of the FISA Court, which oversees requests for surveillance warrants against suspected foreign intelligence agents inside the United States.
  • Samsung Z Delay Prompts Tizzy Over Tizen

    Richard Adhikari
    30 Jul 2014 | 10:56 am
    Samsung has delayed the launch of its Samsung Z smartphone running the Tizen OS, which was scheduled for Q3 release in Russia. The move, just short of two months after the Samsung Z's launch at the Tizen Developers Conference, sparked a death watch for the device. However, Samsung said it needed to further enhance the Tizen ecosystem. Samsung has had several setbacks with the Tizen smartphone. NTT DoCoMo, Japan's largest carrier, and another key backer, French carrier Orange, canceled plans to carry a Tizen smartphone earlier this year.
  • Android's Fake ID Could Put Millions in Jeopardy

    Richard Adhikari
    30 Jul 2014 | 7:10 am
    An Android vulnerability that exists in every version from v2.1 Eclair to v. 4.3 Jelly Bean could expose millions of users, Bluebox Security has warned. The flaw lets attackers fake the certificates of specially privileged parties, such as Adobe and Google Wallet, and serve them up with malware that bypasses detection by Android. Attackers then can take over every application running on an Android device. The flaw, which BlueBox calls -- what else? -- "Fake ID," also might impact Android forks, including Amazon's Fire OS.

    29 Jul 2014 | 5:12 pm
    OkCupid has admitted carrying out psychological experiments on its users. Because OkCupid doesn't really know what it's doing, it needs to experiment to see what works and what doesn't, cofounder Christian Rudder wrote in a blog post. Every Internet company needs to test different things with users, and website visitors are subjected to "hundreds of experiments at any given time, on every site. That's how websites work," he argued. "When this story came out, I almost thought 'it's a publicity stunt,'" said Quinnipiac professor Sang Nam.

    If you haven’t seen it yet, I highly recommend the DEF CON documentary that came out last year. For nearly two hours, you get a detailed history of the event and get a pretty good introduction to the major players who make the whole thing work. If you’re going for the first time, the documentary, directed by Jason Scott Sadofsky, is must-viewing. The post First-Time DEF CON Attendee?

    We’ve already reported today that Samsung has announced the UK release dates for their two new devices, the Galaxy S5 Mini and the Galaxy Young 2.

    After hearing about glow-in-the-dark ice cream, breast milk ice cream, crocodile egg ice cream and of course, Viagra ice cream, I didn’t think there were any more ways for frozen milk to surprise us. Of course, I was wrong. A Spanish scientist has now invented colour-changing ice cream. As PSFK reports, Manuel Linares, a physicist from Catalonia, says that his Xamaléon (which I’m guessing is a play on ‘chameleon’) flavour is not only a refreshing and tasty fruit-flavoured treat but also a feast for the eyes. It’s also a bit of a faff: it starts off a not…

We previously covered what you can expect from the device when it was announced earlier this month. Essentially though it shares a lot of DNA with its bigger brother, some of the spec has taken a hit – with the screen only running at 720p instead of 1080p. (It’s obviously physically smaller too). Samsung has also announced on the same day the Galaxy Young 2 will also be out in the UK. Sadly the company…

The streaming service will enable gamers to play potentially hundreds of PS3 titles on their PS4. The way it will work is by doing all of the difficult processing in the cloud – before beaming the pictures back to your TV. Needless to say, you’ll need a fairly speedy connection if you want to play reliably. Apparently PS Now…

Hence, it’s not surprising that Airloyal is attempting to bring the same concept to India. Airloyal’s Ladoo app for Android offers free mobile recharges to users for completing simple tasks. Almost all of the tasks that I saw on Ladoo’s offer wall involved downloading…

  • One Windows: Forget Single OS, Can We Get Some Feature Parity?

    25 Jul 2014 | 10:03 am
    This week, we have seen some news items about Microsoft and its OS strategy. Based on CEO Satya Nadella’s remarks in the post-earnings conference call, many were led to believe that Microsoft is going to create a single version of Windows. That is of course not true, and what’s happening is also not new information. What is in fact happening is that from an engineering perspective, Microsoft is hard at work to make a single “core” of the OS which will then power devices of various types: phones, phablets, tablets, laptops, PCs, Xbox, and even “things” in…

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

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

    Nantero has been developing NRAM (carbon nanotube based memory) for a long time, and now they collaborated with researchers from Chuo University to show how this memory features high-speed, low-power-consumption and high-reliability operation.An NRAM memory cell is made from a thin CNT film sandwiched between two metal electrodes. When voltage is applied, the CNTs come closer to each other (due to electrostatic force and intermolecular force) and the resistivity is lowered. When the voltage drops to zero, the CNTs do not separate as they are tightly attached. This creates a non-volatile…
  • Toshiba developed STT-MRAM based microprocessor cache memory

    mram
    12 Jun 2014 | 5:45 am
    Toshiba developed new STT-MRAM technology that can be used to enable MRAM based cache memory for microprocessors. The L2 cache alone uses about 80% of the power consumed by the CPU, so reducing the power consumption of the cache is very important - and STT-MRAM may reduce this consumption by about 60%. It's not clear how close is this technology to actually being commercialized.Toshiba's new STT-MRAM uses a dual-cell (2T-2MTJ) circuit in which the two MTJs have complementary resistive states (high and low resistive states). This eliminates the leak path and also increases the readout signal…

    On Tuesday, Twitter reported on its past three months with its Q2 2014 earnings call. The main headline was a financially-strong quarter for the social media network, but hidden within Twitter’s report was a hint from CFO Anthony Noto about the site’s upcoming online video plans. Noto, who arrived at Twitter at the beginning of July, explained that the company plans to make a big launch during the coming month. “In August, we will launch the beta version of our new promoted video offering which provides a way for high quality content producers and brands [to] easily upload,…

    30 Jul 2014 | 8:27 am
    For advertisers who make use of YouTube’s TrueView service, watch time is both a vital and rare resource. The latest company gaming the pre-roll system in search of viewer engagement is Nail Communications, an ad agency that has seen strong returns with a deceptive pre-roll ad. Research suggests that viewers are more likely to remember  an ad if they view it to completion, so advertisers have figured out a number of anti-skipping strategies. Some pre-roll ads front-load content into the first five seconds in order to reel in viewers before they have the option to skip. Other…

  • Can You Trust the Web for Online Donations? [Infographic]

    Eric Dye
    30 Jul 2014 | 9:00 am
    Mobile online giving is important, but can we trust the Internet for online donations? The infographic below highlights the Internet’s recent security and privacy failures and states that “75% of people already have or will have their data compromised in their lifetime.” That’s a pretty scary statistic (however accurate it is) if you rely on the web to keep your data safe; but in the end, keeping your data safe has far more to do with you and me than it does companies and applications that store our data.

There were several things that I’ve learned from my time away from work and the web and I hope to share a few of those things in the coming days.

    Are you a sprinkler or a dunker? I’m referring to your church’s baptismal practices, by the way. We’re “dunkers.” For us, baptism has always meant “full immersion,” a deep plunging under water. Funny thing about water: sometimes, it’s cold. If you’re an old school dunker, you might be saying, “I’ll tell you about cold water, boy. I was baptized in a cow pond.” Or maybe I’m wrong. Maybe it was a “swimming hole.” Either way, from what I hear, old people were often baptized in disgusting pond water, which…

  • Sony: EA Access Doesn't Represent Good Value

    30 Jul 2014 | 2:07 pm
    Apparently Sony doesn't think $30 a year is a good deal for EA's Access program. "We evaluated the EA Access subscription offering and decided that it does not bring the kind of value PlayStation customers have come to expect," a Sony representative told us via email. "PlayStation Plus memberships are up more than 200% since the launch of PlayStation 4, which shows that gamers are looking for memberships that offer a multitude of services, across various devices, for one low price. We don't think asking our fans to pay an additional $5 a month for this EA-specific program represents good…

    In January of this year, we urged Techdirt readers to express their views on copyright by participating in the European Commission's consultation on the subject. It seems that many of you did, judging by the final numbers, which have just been published by the Commission (pdf): The public consultation generated broad interest with more than 9,500 replies to the consultation document and a total of more than 11,000 messages, including questions and comments, sent to the Commission's dedicated email address. A number of initiatives were also launched by organized stakeholders that nurtured the…
  • Using Spreadsheets In Bioinformatics Can Corrupt Data, Changing Gene Names Into Dates

    Glyn Moody
    30 Jul 2014 | 8:37 pm
    A few years back, people were rather disturbed to find out about the famous Excel bug, whereby the multiplication of two numbers in Microsoft's spreadsheet gave the wrong number. It turns out there are other circumstances in which Excel (and, to be fair, presumably other spreadsheets) can give incorrect results, but they are unlikely to be encountered in typical everyday tasks. However, in the specialized world of bioinformatics, which uses computers to analyze data about genes and related areas, careless use of spreadsheets can throw up a significant numbers of errors, as this paper in BMC…
  • DailyDirt: With Super Healing Powers

    Michael Ho
    30 Jul 2014 | 5:00 pm
    Time can heal some wounds, and technology can sometimes speed things up a bit. But regenerative medicine could really help to improve our health if we can re-grow body parts on demand. Here are just a few links on getting our bodies to heal themselves. Scientists have found lingering olfactory receptors in unexpected places -- such as the skin -- where these receptors may play a role in healing processes. Sandalwood oil which is often used in aromatherapy can bind to skin receptors and trigger skin cells to divide (and possibly help repair damage as part of a healing mechanism). [url] Several…

    Recently, Russ Roberts had YCombinator's Sam Altman on his absolutely wonderful podcast Econtalk, and the discussion is fantastic and worth listening to (which is true of most Econtalk episodes). Among many interesting and thought-provoking points that Altman made about innovations and new startups like AirBnB and Uber was that with those kinds of new solutions there were always the growing pains -- the stories of crazy drivers or the AirBnB guests throwing crazy house parties. Those stories generate a lot of attention, and they tend to highlight issues where service can be improved, but they…

  • Treehugger founder Graham Hill’s “Micro Apartment” on the Market

    Chance Kinney
    30 Jul 2014 | 9:59 pm
    This 420 sq. ft. Soho apartment might look a little familiar. It’s gotten tons of press ever since owner Graham Hill showed off the results of a redesign courtesy of a couple architecture students—a redesign that packed eight rooms into one. Well, it seems like Hill is moving out, and you can move in, for a price. A high price. The apartment is being listed on the market for $995,000. If you’re unacquainted, the 420 sq ft apartment has a master bed that folds up into one of the walls, along with a moveable partition that reveals an extra guest room with two more, smaller…

    No, we aren’t talking about Plants vs. Zombies or an uptick in Walking Dead apps. We all know how much Apple loves to brag about the number of apps on the App Store. But, what does that huge number (currently at 1,252,777) actually mean? For most app developers and smartphone users, a lot less than it would appear at first blush. Adjust is an analytics company that has dived into the numbers behind the App Store. One of the first things they reveal is that the app graveyard is pretty crowded—1.6 million apps have been uploaded since the App Store opened, meaning that about one-fifths…
  • Kodak 35mm Film Lives to See Another Day in Hollywood

    For many, the difference between film and digital recording isn’t a difference of technology, but one of medium. Movies shot on celluloid film have both tangible and psychological importance to the creators and the movie-watchers, and in the hands of masters, film can still be used to terrific and unique aesthetic effect. That’s why it’s good to know that film will still be around, at least for a little while. Kodak, one of the last few producers of 35mm and 70mm film, had planned on completely halting production of film this year. That has something to do with the fact that…

    Raja Manoharan
    23 May 2014 | 3:21 am
    App monetization is a hot topic today. More and more app developers are finding that their users don’t want to pay to download an app – they want it free, and they’re willing to suffer through advertising and other marketing methods to get that free price point. In fact, free apps routinely outperform paid apps in all categories save a couple (business utilities and navigation). Does that mean you’re doomed never to make a profit from your efforts? Not at all. Freemium has become the new standard, and some experts expect it to account for up to 93% of the global app market in just a…

Truth be told, there’s no golden rule, no magic bullet, that guarantees your content will go viral. In fact, most marketing experts have no idea why one post goes viral when another doesn’t achieve that critical mass. However, while viral spread might be the Holy Grail of online marketing, creating content that get shared is more important. You might never attain “viral” status, but good content that’s shared…

However, this time around, they've minimized the layout by shrinking the row of buttons to a mere 3 - as opposed to the 4 we're normally accustomed to seeing. Additionally, numbers and punctuations aren't available through the keyboard, but they've been turned into virtual keys that sit above the top row for quick access. And during our demo, we…
  • Microsoft reveals Update 1 for Windows Phone 8.1

    30 Jul 2014 | 3:40 pm
    As expected, Microsoft is finally revealing all there is about Update 1 for Windows Phone 8.1. Known internally as GDR1 for 'general distribution release,' this update is one of two for the 8.1 operating system in 2014. The news comes out of Beijing, China where Microsoft's Joe Belfiore announced the release during his keynote, in addition to the expansion of Cortana to the UK and China. Coming next week for Preview for Developers. If Microsoft can keep this pace of updates up, they've got something very good going. A very welcome contrast to the slow and monolithic approach the company took…
  • Another day, another sensationalist, unfounded security story

    29 Jul 2014 | 11:28 am
    Dan Goodin, at Ars Technica, is writing about a security flaw in Android. It's got all the usual scary-scary language about doom and gloom, quotes from antivirus peddlers, and it wasn't long until sensationalist Apple site AppleInsider took it all one step further (relevant). So, is this a real security threat, or are we looking at sensationalism run amok? This is the issue in a nutshell. The Fake ID vulnerability stems from the failure of Android to verify the validity of cryptographic certificates that accompany each app installed on a device. The OS relies on the credentials when…
  • Arment on 'app rot'

    29 Jul 2014 | 7:33 am
    We've touched on this topic several times already - most recently only a few days ago: the application store model is facing some serious issues at the moment, to the heavy detriment of users and developers alike. If you don't want to take my word for it - and really, you shouldn't, as you should make up your own mind - Marco Arment has written a great summary of all the problems the application store model is facing, with a lot of quotes from other sources to come to a good overview. Apple's App Store design is a big part of the problem. The dominance and prominence of "top lists" stratifies…

In addition to recounting his remarkable career in journalism and public service, an event nine years ago that’s now referred to by early contributors to Wikipedia as “the Wikipedia Seigenthaler incident” earned a paragraph in Mr. Seigenthaler’s New York Time’s obituary.

    All week, anyone who follows the news has been carpet-bombed with punditry informing them that House Majority Leader Eric Cantor’s defeat was because he supported immigration reform. Yet now, polls on both the right and left are revealing that immigration reform was far down on the list of issues that influenced the election’s outcome. Reporting on a poll conducted by Americans for a Conservative Direction, Politico says, “Only 22 percent of Virginia residents who voted for Cantor’s opponent, Dave Brat, cited immigration as the primary reason for their vote.

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

For many it starts innocently enough by just needing to mash-up two Excel spreadsheets. Soon, however, it spirals out of control as the data gets bigger and you keep adding…

    Anshel Sag
    31 Jul 2014 | 12:00 am
    We caught wind of a pretty sweet backup battery deal on woot.com, a daily deal website now owned by Amazon. This is for the Gorilla Gadgets CHR-150 Uhuru! 16,800 mAh External Portable Battery Pack Charger with LED Screen. Why is this a great deal? Because Amazon is selling it right now for $70, but Woot.com is selling it for $40 and the suggested retail price is $140. But what makes this thing awesome? Well, other than the fact that it comes with three different charging connectors (microUSB, lightning and Apple 30-pin), it can also fully charge an iPad and an iPhone and probably still have…

The problem is that when the market views you as a commodity, all you have to compete on is price, and life is very difficult. That’s why people in commodity businesses…
  • Awareness

    Alex Goldfayn
    7 Jul 2014 | 12:02 am
    Think about your typical customers: on average, what percentage of your entire range of products and services are they aware of? I ask every audience, client and prospect this question, because it is the single lowest hanging fruit for revenue. Answers range between 5% and 50%, but almost never higher. People cannot buy what they do not know about. We think about everything we offer, because it is our job. But our customers have their own jobs. And even if we’ve told them (repeatedly!) about the other products and services they can buy from us, they are probably not aware of them. How do we…
  • Help People, Even In Your Marketing

    Just like your products and services, the best marketing helps people. It doesn’t pitch, propose, push, prod or promise. Rather, it demonstrates your outstanding value to your customers and prospects. It offers ideas, tools, techniques, approaches, and advice for improvement. If you sell products, help your market get the most out of them. If you sell services, teach people how to improve in your area of expertise. Think about your market: as a group, where are they falling short? What are they doing incorrectly that can be bettered? Right now, make a list of a half-dozen such areas.

    Actor David Duchovny recently defended a controversial Russian beer ad he stars in, tellling TMZ that he does not support Russian policy of late, especially the invasion of Ukraine. In the Sibirskaia Korona commercial, which runs over two minutes long, Duchovny muses about how his life might have turned out if he was born in Russia instead of the United States. “This is the country where I was born and raised,” Duchovny says at the start of the rather epic video, adding, “But there is another country, where I got my family name from.

    It’s an exciting story that brings out the treasure hunter in all of us. One Florida family literally struck gold when a surprising discovery was made beneath the waves of the Atlantic Ocean. It was Eric Schmitt, who is a treasure seeker by trade, who made the discovery last month. He and his parents were out scavenging for underwater treasure amid an 18th century shipwreck. Eleven ships had sunk off the eastern coast of central Florida, taking with them rare and precious artifacts. Schmitt and his family were hoping for a bit of luck, and they were indeed lucky.

Truly great performers deal with hecklers in ways that make the audience remember the experience forever. Is Lauryn Hill a truly great performer?

    Most of the touch screen smartphones today come with an accelerometer that basically turn the orientation of the screen based on how you are holding the phone, be it in landscape or portrait mode. However, just about every phone comes with a rotation lock control that fixes your phone to remain in the portrait mode. What if you want more out of your device, maybe you want to lock the phone in landscape mode or maybe you want to disable rotation for just a few selected apps?

    Motorola has made the Motorola Moto G available starting at Rs 10,500 for a limited time in India. Motorola says that the stock of the device is limited so you must hurry up to pick up the device while you can. Not just the 8 GB variant, the 16 GB device has also seen a price drop of Rs 2,00 meaning it is available for a cut price bargain of Rs 11,999. It is not clear how many eact units are up for sale during this period or for how long will the discount last, but our guess is that this move has been made after the growing popularity of Xiaomi and its fans which has in a way subdued the…

The latest Windows Phone 8.1 update will bring Cortana as a Beta to China, while other countries such as India and Australia and Canada will receive it as an Alpha. The reason for this is slow development due to regional restrictions. Since Cortana uses a lot of location as well as contextual features, you can understand why Microsoft is calling this an Alpha release as there is no doubt there would be…

    There was a time when the term ‘portable music’ and Sony were almost synonymous. The Japanese multinational conglomerate corporation is one of the first and largest manufacturers of quality portable music devices, but they have been sidelined in recent years by Apple’s iPod. Maybe that is why Sony is bringing back its biggest product to date, a Walkman called NWZ-ZX1. The NWZ-ZX1 is different from all earlier Walkman models launched by Sony. It features a 4-inch touchscreen and is a complete modern iteration of the original Walkman. NWZ-ZX1′s thickness is almost twice…

    For years security against explosives has been left up to dogs. These dogs are trained for a long period of time to be able to detect explosive materials, but the process of training them is tiresome and expensive. The good news is that dogs won’t have to do all the work anymore thanks to a sensor invented recently. This sensor is more special as it possesses the ability to detect extremely minute quantities of explosive. A test conducted to determine the device’s capabilities revealed that it can successfully detect explosives such as 2,4-dinitrotoluene or DNT, nitrobenzene and…

They nod and say “hi” at parties, but are definitely not close friends.  It’s really too bad, they have so much in common and would have a lot to talk about.  They both know so much about your company’s customers, orders, products and shipments, but one only hears about what the other knows through hearsay (sometimes called “data entry” in the business world). This article will begin to tell a story of building bonds of friendship between…
  • IE Testing with Mac OS X

    Microsoft is trying to give us ways to make things work, even though it’s still painful. When we moved our office from Uniontown to Pittsburgh, we left behind a handful of 5-10 year old PCs that were wasting space in our office, aside from testing our projects in Internet Explorer. We should have a Linux install party at The Beauty Shoppe and donate those machines, stripping the XP serial numbers/labels off the top (so not to fuel the never ending cycle of people not upgrading their computers)! This worked fine for us, but sooping up our Mac’s with more RAM or upgrading allowed…

  • Facebook shutters Gifts service on its site

    31 Jul 2014 | 12:33 am
    Facebook used to allow you to send gifts or digital gift cards to your friends on the social networking site. Now, this option is being taken away from you. Facebook is shutting down the service by August 12 as part of a move to help businesses and developers drive their own sales rather than turning Facebook into an online store of sorts. Or we’d like to think no one is really using the service anymore so it makes no sense that they keep it running. Source: Gizmodo

    HTC has something up its sleeves and the tech rumour mill is buzzing. The Taiwanese smartphone manufacturer is hosting an event in New York this coming August 19 and they aren’t saying what it’s for. Some people claim the event will be for HTC One M8 for Windows. The device will reportedly feature most of the same specs the Android flagship will have such as Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 processor, 2GB of RAM, 5-inch 1080p display, and 16GB or 32GB internal storage.

  • Microsoft’s New CEO Needs An Editor

    Jean-Louis Gassée
    13 Jul 2014 | 9:42 am
      Satya Nadella’s latest message to the troops – and to the world – is disquieting. It lacks focus, specifics, and, if not soon sharpened, his words will worry employees, developers, customers, and even shareholders. As I puzzled over the public email Microsoft’s new CEO sent to his troops, Nicolas Boileau’s immortal dictum came to mind: Whatever is well conceived is clearly said, And the words to say it flow with ease. Clarity and ease are sorely missing from Satya Nadella’s 3,100 plodding words, which were supposed to paint a clear, motivating future for 127,000…

      By the end of 2014, many news media will collect around 50% of their page views via mobile devices. Here are trends to remember before devising a mobile strategy. (First of a two-part series.) In the news business, mobile investments are on the rise. That’s the pragmatic response to a major trend: Users shift from web to mobile. Already, all major media outlets are bracing for a momentous threshold: 50% of their viewership coming from mobile devices (smartphones and tablets). Unfortunately, the revenue stream is not likely to follow anytime soon: making users pay for mobile…
  • The Network Is the Computer: Google Tries Again

    Jean-Louis Gassée
    6 Jul 2014 | 1:29 pm
      All you need is a dumb device attached to a smart network. It’s an old idea that refuses to die despite repeated failures. Now it’s Google’s turn. In the late 1980s, Sun Microsystems used a simple, potent war cry to promote its servers: The Network Is The Computer. Entrust all of your business intelligence, computing power, and storage to Sun’s networked SPARC systems and you can replace your expensive workstation with a dumb, low cost machine. PCs are doomed. Nothing of the sort happened, of course. Sun’s venture was disrupted by inexpensive servers assembled from the PC…
  • Google might not be a monopoly, after all

      Despite its dominance, Google doesn’t fit the definition of a monopoly. Still, the Search giant’s growing disconnect from society could lead to serious missteps and, over time, to a weakened position.  In last week’s column, I opined about the Open Internet Project’s anti-trust lawsuit against Google. Reactions showed divided views of the search engine’s position. Granted, Google is an extremely aggressive company, obsessed with growth, scalability, optimization — and also with its own vulnerability. But is it really a monopoly in the traditional and historical…

    Every business organisation, no matter how successful, has lost customers in the past. This could be due to any of a myriad of reasons, from a poor customer service experience that’s left the customer disenchanted, to discovering they’ve been paying more than they should have for the products and/or services they’ve purchased. However, it isn’t necessarily the experience in question that dictates whether or not there remains a possibility of winning back a disenchanted customer, but rather the actions taken to win them back. There are no set-in-stone methods that are guaranteed to…

For the better part of my career, I wrestled with one crippling fear – that one day, I would run out of ideas. Afraid that the well would run dry, and I would no longer be able to rise to the challenge of creating new stuff. Over recent years, I’ve decided to confront this fear instead of living with it. What I’ve come to realize is as liberating as the act of creating itself. This year, legendary designer Massimo Vignelli passed away…

    A new material structure developed at MIT generates steam by soaking up the sun. The structure — a layer of graphite flakes and an underlying carbon foam — is a porous, insulating material structure that floats on water. When sunlight hits the structure’s surface, it creates a hotspot in the graphite, drawing water up through the material’s pores, where it evaporates as steam. The brighter the light, the more steam is generated.read more

Crystals are paragons of order; crystalline materials are defined by the repeating patterns their constituent atoms and molecules make. Now physicists at the University of Pennsylvania and the University of Chicago have evidence that a new concept should undergird our understanding of most materials: the anticrystal, a theoretical solid that is completely disordered.read more

  • Healthcare Bills for Common Ailments on the Rise

    Julie Clements
    30 Jul 2014 | 3:14 am
    Healthcare is becoming a costly commodity in the United States. The total healthcare spending in the United States is expected to reach $4.8 trillion by the year 2021. In fact, a report in the New York Times reveals that even for relatively small or common ailments you can incur huge hospital charges. According to new data released by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, the charges for some of the common inpatient procedures (such as treatment for pneumonia or digestive problems) increased in hospitals across the US in 2012 from a year earlier, at more than four times the national…
  • Complicated EHR Implementation May Create Patient Safety Issues

    Rajeev Rajagopal
    28 Jul 2014 | 2:25 am
    Electronic health records (EHR) is a patient centric information resource for physicians that represent a major domain of health information technology (HIT). The EHR system facilitates improved communication between healthcare providers; promotes patient safety thereby enhancing quality of care. Even though EHRs enhance patient care, many do not recognize that adverse patient safety issues stemming from this system have a long-lasting effect. A new study of health IT implementation conducted at seven Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) hospitals shows that EHRs when implemented without…

    Mobile apps are radically changing the way doctors and patients interact and approach healthcare. Over the last few years, several medical mobile applications were developed that offer quick access to evidence-based medical research from mobile devices. These apps are making it possible for physicians as well as patients to view x-rays, review clinical notes, track health progress and access information regarding any medical condition through major mobile platforms such as iPhone, Android, Blackberry, and Windows. Many physicians are also recognizing the positive possibilities for increased…

    In the United States, under the new healthcare law about 8 million people have signed up for private health plans via health insurance exchanges. However, as per the latest reports from federal officials the eligibility of about 2 million people is still in question. The Obama administration is reaching out to hundreds of thousands of new Obamacare enrollees receiving subsidies to resolve serious questions about their eligibility, as many consumer advocates have expressed their concerns that many of them will be required to repay some or all of the subsidies.  The new step was undertaken…

  • There’s no need for aggression

    Dan O'Connor
    30 Jul 2014 | 4:10 am
    On July 7, news hit the wire that Attachmate are allegedly suing Mobistar to the tune of $6.12m for the illegal use of their ReflectionX product. It’s not surprising when Attachmate is regarded by many as one of the more aggressive software vendors when it comes to software auditing. It isn’t solely Attachmate that is seen as aggressive: The big five (Microsoft, SAP, IBM, Symatec, Adobe) are all upping their auditing activity, and why not when there is big money to be made? As I’ve said previously (‘Software License Audits – Reputation is Everything‘), the average audit…
  • 1E Nomad and IIS Request Filtering

    Peter Clark
    28 Jul 2014 | 3:19 am
    A ConfigMgr client uses HTTP or HTTPS to get content from a distribution point (DP) when running a deployment that requires content. IIS has a built in function called IIS Request Filtering which blocks certain file extensions, folders and file names. Some examples include: <filename>.resx (file extensions) Visual C++ (double escaping) \bin folder (hidden segments) The ConfigMgr client doesn’t get blocked when downloading content from a ConfigMgr DP over HTTP or HTTPS. This is because when the ConfigMgr client downloads a blocked file extension rather that requesting the…

Are you simply finding that the Apple devices are somehow just becoming more and more popular with not only the executives but also the next layers in the business? Once these devices are seen within the enterprise, it is very unlikely that the numbers will dwindle since users tend to share experiences of IT with each other and as a result the wow / cool factor of a MacBook Air and its relative simplicity of use (in the eye of the beholder) will…

In a recent TED talk, Ito announced his new motto: “deploy or die.” The very nature of innovative has been changed by the Internet, he says, because individuals and small groups can create new products by taking the software development process—continual A/B testing, iteration, and new testing—into the marketplace. He described a “rainforest of innovation” coming out of China’s manufacturing plants as students design…

    Clive Thompson
    22 Jul 2014 | 7:43 pm
    I recently picked up 1001 Video Games You Must Play Before You Die. I couldn't resist the title, which so neatly refracts the gibbering cultural anxieties of lists like "1000 novels everyone must read". You see this sort of highbrow listicle often in the realms of literary fiction, movies, possibly poetry. It's classic canon panic, and I say that with a degree of charity and warmth; I actually think arguing heatedly and even snobbishly about what works of art are important and mindbending can be a lot of fun, and occasionally useful to the parties involved. But there's something hilarious and…

    That's one of the opening pages of Conjectures on Original Composition, a book about creative genius published by the English poet Edward Young in 1759. It's considered one of the first big essays to tout the idea that "originals" -- writers of deep originality -- are more important and awesome than derivative folks. I heard about Conjectures while reading a different essay this evening, and since I'm sort of obsessed with tracking the rise of our modern (and disastrous) conceit that originality is something that just kind of wells up from inside you I immediately dialed up Conjectures on…

    Yesterday I saw a picture on Boing Boing: A "behind the scenes" shot of how they made the iconic opening "crawl" text for The Empire Strikes Back. I'd always assumed, naively, that the crawl was done with computer graphics, but no: It was a steampunk affair, with the text printed on a piece of glass and filmed at a steep angle by a camera. But what really struck me was the quote from George Lucas about the formal properties of a crawl: "The crawl is such a hard thing because you have to be careful that you're not using too many words that people don't understand," Lucas has said.

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

    The Rise of Cloud-based APM Solutions In my last blog, I called today’s enterprise application landscape “a dog’s breakfast”1 as far as complexity and heterogeneity are concerned. A growing number of APM vendors would likely agree. Regardless of whether you are on the vendor or the consumer side, application management— as opposed to simple application monitoring— is an inherently difficult task. Perhaps for this reason, enterprise-grade Application Performance Management solutions—those capable of monitoring, correlating and triaging integrated, distributed applications while…

    John Myers
    14 Jul 2014 | 8:39 am
    Waaay back in the day (say 2002), organizations would ask themselves: “If our customer and prospect (potential customer) information is our most valuable asset, why would we EVER trust it with a 3rd party who would put it with the customer information from other companies?” Today, organizations do not hesitate to start their sales endeavors with the swipe of a credit card and the creation of a Salesforce.com account. In fact, the concept of X-as-as-service has grown to have as many definitions as the concept of cloud computing itself. There are infrastructure-as-a-services (IaaS) that…

    If you are an IT manager, have you ever found yourself stuck in the uncomfortable position of having to choose which jobs are given priority access to essential computing resources? Most likely you have as this is not an uncommon problem. Expecting them to invoke the Wisdom of Solomon, enterprises often bestow the power to decide the workload hierarchy on IT operations. But as most IT managers will tell you, this responsibility is typically more of a curse than a blessing. A recent blog by IBM Tiger Team member, Xavier Giannakopoulos, titled “You are promoted!

  • INcode is a useful lookup directory for India for all your codes

    Abhishek Baxi
    31 Jul 2014 | 2:38 am
    While usually I report on some terrific apps on the Windows Phone Store (and some not-so-good ones too) here on Windows Phone Central, this post is different. Today I share my first Windows Phone app with the readers - the community that's more aware and usually critical, in a useful way. On a daily basis, we look up details of a national highway in India, a region associated with a license plate number, or MICR code of your bank branch.

  • How to use custom fonts in Android apps (and not get fat)

    Daniel Dekański
    29 Jul 2014 | 7:16 am
    Fonts have always been a vital part of brand identity and UI design. With the development of modern Web standards it has become easy to implement customized fonts in websites, but native mobile apps somehow still lag behind in this area. Platform guides warn us against unleashing our creativity in that aspect and state that the built-in fonts have been optimized for memory and performance constraints of mobile devices. I think today, with more and more horse power under the hood of our latest mobile gadgets, we should not limit ourselves to the modest assortment of default typefaces. Going…
  • Software Architecture Canvas – a brother of the business model canvas?

    Patryk Borowa
    17 Jul 2014 | 3:57 am
    Have you ever heard of the business model canvas? If so, then you know that it is basically a board of basic elements which need to be evaluated in the process of creating a product and the business around it. Have you ever wondered if such a model could be created for a software design process? I did and here are my thoughts on it. Obviously a detailed implementation cannot be touched by such a “bird’s eye architecture-cheat-sheet” but I think a general description with some design tips can be achieved. So without further ado I bring to you: “The 11 blocks of software…

The real adventure nowadays is to use existing pieces to create something innovating and attractive. The real engineering is the ability to combine available libraries and frameworks into something that works flawlessly in every conditions. In one of my previous posts I showed you…

    It sounds obvious to spend your social budget to please valuable fans, doesn’t it? So why aren’t we doing so?

    The needs of performers, worse-for-wear teenagers, mile-long queues of traffic, high-tech equipment: they all need looking after at a festival. It’s an understatement to say ensuring everyone’s safety at a festival poses lots of challenges – and the last couple of decades has seen the development of event security solutions to directly meet those challenges.

    30 Jul 2014 | 8:23 am
    Here we go again. Just a month has passed since I wrote the following about my experiences at the Edison Awards, in a blog post uncreatively titled The Innovator’s Dilemma:  “There was a great preponderance of what I call “brilliant individual syndrome,” wherein people stood up, said how smart they were, how they had vision to make things happen…and ignored the six failed innovation attempts that came prior to this success, when they managed to light piles of their own (and others’) money on fire and watch it go up in smoke.”  What followed was a spirited defense (at least…

    22 Jul 2014 | 10:09 am
    Social media seems to be impacting nearly every aspect of marketing. It allows brands to interact with consumers in a digital space. Feedback and customer service happen in real time. Now, it seems social media may be simplifying the ecommerce channel, giving consumers the ability to make purchases directly in the ads and posts for products they see in their feeds. Both Facebook and Twitter have now begun testing “buy now” buttons to their sites and apps. In both instances, consumers have the ability to click a “buy” button within an ad (which can be prompted to appear based on a…

    When searching the term “Market Research” on Wikipedia, the definition is followed by the suggestion that market research “is a very important component of business strategy.”  We agree!  And it’s only going to become a more critical component as we enter the “hyper-creation” phase of our post-great recession economy.

    I can hear some of you scoffing now: “Yeah, right, because the world needed yet another Doritos product.” But as people in the business of innovation, we have to admit that the Doritos team does a great job of continually filling their innovation pipeline, leading to plenty successful new (and novel!) product launches. They’ve got to be doing something right, as according to Mintel they’re the leading tortilla chip brand in the US.PepsiCo has done it yet again. And by “it”, I mean stretching the Doritos brand well past chips – this time landing under a heating lamp at 7-Eleven.

    2 Jul 2014 | 8:22 am
    Yo: A two letter word with ambiguous origins and typically inconsequential meaning. Or is it not that simple? One of the newest trends in social media and mobile apps has been the rise of the app named after such a seemingly innocuous term. Giving users only the ability to send the word “Yo” to each other, the app has already received $1.2 million in investment and has risen to the number one in the iOS app store. The fast rise of Yo was quickly followed by an influx of hack attempts, and when a group of college students hacked into Yo’s data and were able to attain user information,…

And just because your site releases great content doesn’t make you a content creator.

You can choose a display that is already made, or you can use a picture that you create in order to make the display stand out and blend with your business or decorations in your home. These displays are often clearer for stores. This is an advantage for customers who might not be able to see well or to advertise sales and new products. When customers can see the items displayed and get…

    Ideally, Lotus Notes is a suite that is composed of benefits like emailing, calendaring, database management, Web Server, programming etc. So, giving blame to the application that it is a costly email-client would be an injustice. Organizations that are using Notes® aim fully for the purpose of emailing; surely a large section of finances are going in vain. For turning losses due to mail application, the idea of migrating to MS Outlook can be adopted that is as capable as Notes® when it comes to serving sheer emailing experience. In the process of moving to another email application and…

    When was the last time we heard something new or exciting from BlackBerry? Apart from the recent appointment of Marty Beard as COO, not much else. And this quick rundown by Ingrid Lunden over at TechCrunch of where BlackBerry stands right now isn’t all sunshine and rainbows: BlackBerry’s share price dropped by more than 10% the day after Apple and IBM announced their news. The effect was not helped by the general decline that BlackBerry has seen over the last couple of years as its market share in smartphones as tumbled while Android devices and the iPhone continue to rise.

    Yesterday’s journey back home in Manila turned out to be an interesting case of testing our values of respect for one another, the law and decency. One of my fellow passengers on the commute from Tenement in C-5 to the MRT/LRT station in Pasay City along the East Service road was an old man and a senior citizen. The driver of the jeep was a decade younger than him, I think. For the purposes of this post, I’d refer to the passenger as ‘Manong senior citizen‘ and the driver as ‘Manong Drayber‘. Yes, I need to work on better references. It all started when…

It’s like telling all the farmers to give up their rightful claims on Hacienda Luisita and adorn the Cojuancos for their benevolence. It’s like telling Editha Burgos that she should trust the AFP are telling the truth and would help them find her still missing son Jonas Burgos.

    The last time there was a major slow down of internet speed in the country was back in December of 2006 when an earthquake that struck off the coast of Taiwan damaged major undersea cables that provide connectivity to the country. With incidents like these, even the biggest ISPs like PLDT and Globe were at the mercy of international groups that maintain the undersea cable connections’ ability to repair the damage. The recent damage hit the undersea cables lying in areas between Taiwan and Japan, and China and Korea. Latest reports say that repairs are expected to be completed by around…

    A survey shows organizations will spend more on IT next year, but IT pros don’t expect those extra dollars will translate into bigger IT departments. The good news is that IT pros expect their budgets to increase in 2015. The bad news is that they don’t expect to get much staffing help as they manage an influx of new technology. This is the mixed bag of results from a survey released Wednesday by Spiceworks, an IT community platform that provides free IT management tools. The survey showed that 42% of IT professionals expect their budgets to increase in 2015 from this year. The…

    We all know the feeling. You apply for a job, and wait, and wait...and wait some more. You’re wondering if the company received your application, if you’re in the running for the job or just downright out for the count. No one likes to be in limbo during the hiring process. It’s often a full-time job looking for a job, so not knowing where you stand is just straight up frustrating.

Most people spend at least a quarter of their time at work every week. And that’s exactly why it’s so important to embrace what makes your company special and let your culture shine. We all know referrals are one the best recruitment avenues, and nothing says “come join our team” like a team member raving about why he or she loves working there. Last week I talked about getting…

Cómo suele ocurrir cuando dices la verdad sobre una marca popular, los fanáticos más extremos de esa marca criticaron todo lo que dije, simplemente porque no les gustó.

    Business & IT Strategy We hear it almost every day, IT Strategy, Business Strategy, strategic customer accounts, strategic widgets, etc. Strategy is applied to so many areas and so many things that the word has almost become meaningless.  The term “strategy” has become trite because it is used so much with so little understanding.

    In House vs. Outsource Business today is looking for a way to provide shareholder value.  Outsourcing has become one of the latest “crazes” to boost stock values because shareholders believe it will reduce costs.  While your share price may increase in the short term, you may not see the cost savings and your share price will suffer later as your cost basis increases. It is sad that the cost saving “dream” presented during all those sales pitches often become a “nightmare” of spiraling costs and management headaches.  If you go into your outsourcing…

With some background understanding (and a lot of due diligence) you can avoid most of those rocks and navigate these waters. It does take work, work that your outsourcing vendor will never tell you.

The less aggressive you are with your outsourcing management the more profitable you are to the outsourcing company. Does fallout mean you will be in court? Sometimes yes, but sometimes it means re-negotiating a contract or, worse still, skyrocketing costs which can exceed the original costs that were replaced. Outsourcing Relationship or Arrangement The sales personnel for outsourcing will push the idea of…

Steam’s seasonal sales have become something of legend, offering some of the latest titles at almost absurdly low prices. This does not make it a perfect client though; the UI is frequently critiqued for its ugliness, and it is easy to understand why given the dated design.Given that Steam provides support for skins, it should be hardly surprising to discover that the default UI can be modified quite extensively,…

    Alysia Judge
    31 Jul 2014 | 2:09 am
    Begin a sentence with the phrase "most anticipated gadget ever" and tradition dictates the words "Google" and "Glass" must follow shortly after. Unceremoniously launched into public consciousness from a plane hovering over Google I/O, Google Glass has been one of the hottest topics in tech since 2012. Two years on and the smart specs are still the gadget every technical guru desires; to some it's "an overwrought headband", to others it's the wearable future of modern technology. Still, it's not all been smooth sailing. In California headlines were rocked back in April when a woman was…

    We all know Google is the darling of the mapping world. If you are going on a trip, the search-giant's navigation solutions are arguably the best. However, it is dangerous to allow one company to essentially own an entire aspect of technology. Luckily, there are additional solutions like Apple Maps and Nokia HERE, to at least offer some semblance of competition. As a Windows Phone user, I have learned to love Nokia HERE as an excellent alternative to Google Maps and navigation. While HERE is lacking in some areas, it has the potential to be great.

The service debuts in private Alpha today, allowing testers to jump on board and get a taste of what it's like to use what is claimed to be a "serverless" version of chat.

  • World’s Smallest High-end PC Has Bushy Copper Afro Instead Of Fans For Heat Dissipation

    this is not a high-tech steel wool with a power button. it is an innovative PC that ditches traditional cooling fans in favor of a bushy chunk of copper afro. aptly called Silent Power PC, this mini PC from Germany maker of the same name is billed as the smallest high-end PC in the world. the odd looking top allows heat to be dissipated by channeling them directly off the CPU and GPU, which results in up to 500 times better heat removal then the traditional counterparts, said the company. apparently, the circulation of air through the copper foam is so efficient that the outside surface…

    obviously, there is no correlation between Frankenstein and lightings (lightning, perhaps), but that does not make Dale Rorabaugh’s Franken Edison Light any less attractive. in fact, it is the opposite. Franken Edison Light brings together Thomas Edison’s electric light bulbs and Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein and presented as a single, brilliant lighting art. well, as far as Edison’s invention goes, it is not exactly an eco- and wallet-friendly thing by today’s standard, but for some reason, modern LEDs, or even energy saving bulbs could never have the same, rustic…

    Ray
    27 Jun 2014 | 4:07 pm
    Read an interesting article the other day about researchers at NASA having invented a vacuum tube on a chip (see ExtremeTech, Vacuum tube strikes back). Their report was based on an IEEE Spectrum article called Introducing the Vacuum Transistor. Computers started out early in the last century being mechanical devices (card sorters), moved up to electronic sorters/calculators/computers with vacuum tubes and eventually transitioned to solid state devices with the silicon transistor. Since then the MOS and CMOS transister have pretty much ruled the world of electronic devices. Vacuum tube?

  • Random Things I Learned Building Software

    I remember the moment I realized I wanted to spend the rest of my career building software. I was at my first job post-college, in my early twenties, and in the office at 9 PM writing code. The company I had joined was on the verge of spiraling out of control, I was working yet another 70+ hour week, and my team was under intense pressure for what seemed like an impossible deadline. But all I could remember thinking is: "I can't believe I'm getting paid to do this job!" In over 20 years, that passion for building software has never left me. I've performed almost every role in a software…

  • AWS Revenue Slip?

    Joe Kinsella
    25 Jul 2014 | 4:46 am
    I recently noticed several bloggers announcing a dramatic slip in the Amazon cloud business based on a drop in revenue of the infamous Other category. While deducing AWS revenue from changes to the Other category is an inexact science, it is the best we have until Amazon choose to break out AWS as a line of business in their SEC filings. It's true the torrid end of 2013 growth of the Other catgeory ($960M in Q3 to $1170M in Q4) flattened in Q1 2014 (+3% to $1204M), before declining in Q2 (-3% to 1168M). But before everyone makes sweeping generalizations of what this means to Amazon's cloud…

A few years ago I was traveling to a customer site in Minnesota. My flight arrived late and I dragged myself to the rental car agency hoping to get a car as quickly as possible. But due to the late hour, there was a limited availability of cars, and so the agency decided to upgrade me to a luxury car. I forget the exact model,…

    I like to think I’m an Agile Pragmatist in a world of Agile Fundamentalists. I believe there is no single framework / process that is a panacea to the various issues within a software development organization, and instead processes must be adapted to fit the specific needs of a business, its customers, product, team and code base. For me defining the right agile process is like the test an eye doctor gives you (“is this better or worse? is this better or worse?”). Rather than prescriptive adherence to a framework, I like to borrow freely from the rich mulch pile of software development…

The problem for some, however is that cable companies and the NFL are the ones who get to dictate which games they can or cannot watch on broadcast TV. Blackout restrictions and inattention to out-of-market teams (think the lonely Broncos fan living in San Diego) can make life rough; and if your a fantasy football fan forget about it: broadcast…

    Ever since MTV descended into reality show hell, favoring Real World and Jersey Shore over any actual music television, YouTube has emerged as music video Nirvana. (See what I did there?!?!) That’s cool and everything, and as long as you don’t mind sitting through a :30 commercial for each video you can have a pretty good time cruising YouTube and watching / listening to your favorite artists. Inevitably, though, you have to get up off your ass. How do you take all this awesome music with you? Enter a cross-browser extension called YouTube to MP3 Converter. This nifty windows app…

    31 Jul 2013 | 3:20 pm
    Google announces plans to roll out faster, free Wi-Fi connections to all Starbucks stores in the United States over the next 18 months with speeds “up to 10x faster than before.” The Net has become as vital to our lives as other utilities like electricity and running water. It’s what we use to plan our day, stay connected with family and friends, stay informed, and a whole slew of important activities that we sometimes take for granted. Having said this, a fast and reliable connection is a constant cause for concern, and try as we may, it’s not always feasible. Enter…

  • Explicit GoTenna Use Case: Buying Drugs

    Michael Arrington
    18 Jul 2014 | 9:27 am
    I read about GoTenna yesterday – a neat little device that connects to your phone via bluetooth that allows you to send messages to other people using GoTenna even if cell service is out. It basically turns your phone into a handheld UHF radio with encryption (which you can’t do as a normal citizen with a CB). Watch the video here on the GoTenna site. I noticed the guy smoking (and selling) marijuana yesterday and chuckled. Someone at Hacker News noticed the same thing and commented on it. Another says “I think they are quite deliberately pointing out that dealers can…

    If you’re involved in the startup world in San Francisco you’ve likely been to the Creamery on Townsend and 4th street. It’s iconic, even if only recently so. In 2012 I wrote about the Creamery in a post talking about the shift in startups from the Palo Alto area to San Francisco, noting that “CrunchFund has probably closed (meaning the verbal agreement part) more deals there than anywhere else.” Other press cemented the cafe’s reputation as the place to do business. Today there are probably at least a handful of startup meetings going on there at any given…

    My defamation action against Jenn Allen, the woman who falsely accused me of rape last year after I ended our relationship, is over. She retracted her statements and apologized, which is the very relief I sought before filing this action, and I accordingly dismissed the lawsuit. The settlement agreement is here. Unfortunately, when you have been accused of rape — even provably falsely as I have been — there’s no way to “win”. For the rest of my life, when someone searches my name on the internet, the word “rape” will appear somewhere among the…
  • Ex-NSA Guys’ Startup To Protect You From NSA

    Virtu, a Washington D.C. startup, raises $6 million in new capital. The company is building an encryption product that will work with email platforms, including Gmail, Yahoo, and Outlook. Which is great except that the founders are ex-NSA guys who used to be paid to do things like collect emails and phone call information from hundreds of millions of terrorist suspects Americans. The kind of stuff that this new product is designed foil. It’s like hiring Darth Vader to build planetary defense systems to thwart the Death Star. Except the analogy doesn’t quite work.

And given my position on paid posts, why would they think I’d be willing to participate? This is just layers of stupid. Here’s the link in the request below. Here’s the hashtag (#IEbloggers) that…

    When the internet first took off, companies scrambled to create websites without asking whether they needed one, or what value it would offer. Today the same thing is true of mobile applications.

    British visitors to copyright-infringing websites will start to see warnings from the police in the place of banner adverts for Usenet and VPNs, in the latest phase of Operation Creative. Rights holders will be able to submit websites that host copyrighted material to the British Police Intellectual Property Crime Unit (PIPCU). The Police will then attempt to verify the claims and if a website is found to be hosting infringing content, they will be contacted by police and given the opportunity to “correct their behaviour” and operate legitimately.

    Facebook is facing widespread criticism for conducting a psychology experiment on 700,000 of its users without their knowledge, but the reaction is unwarranted. The US-based social network manipulated what was seen by users in their newsfeeds in order to control the emotional expressions they were exposed to on the site in order to determine whether “exposure to emotions led people to change their own posting behaviours”. The company worked with Cornell University and the University of California at San Francisco on the study. There have been calls for the social network to…
