    When it comes to smartwatches, Samsung has had its foot on the gas pedal all through the last year. After launching the Galaxy Gear last September, the company pushed out three more watches in April and another in July. And this week, we're going to get our first look at the new Gear S. Confused? Let Gizmag lend a hand, as we compare all six Samsung Gear watches...

  • 5 Examples of Insect-Inspired Robotics

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

    1 Sep 2014 | 6:32 am
    Though 3D printing technology is still relatively new, it may become an important tool for architects and the construction industry, as highlighted by projects like the recent 3D-printing of 10 homes in a day. The latest example of this progress comes via US-based Andrey Rudenko, who has created a small concrete "castle" structure in his backyard using a large 3D printer he built himself. Next up, he's making a house. ..

    Why trust is the new currency in Age of Context and why Nokia lost it here. In the Age of Context lots of companies will go over the freaky line. What is that line? Where at least some people are uncomfortable with the privacy implications of the service. At EVERY speech I’ve given about our new book privacy comes up and people tell me they are scared by this new world that we’re heading into where systems like Google Now help you based on all sorts of private data, from where you are standing to who has sent you airline plans. But there are some “over the freaky line”…

    Back in March 2012 I hyped up Highlight something fierce. I thought it was going to be the next big app. I was wrong. Should have picked Snapchat (which I didn’t see coming because I personally don’t need it very much). Highlight just hasn’t proven to be very addictive to either me or my friends. We talk about it often. I keep running it. Now, what did they do right? They did fix their battery issues. It doesn’t put a major strain on my battery anymore. It does have some users, it’s just that the user count isn’t going up very fast and the UTILITY…

    Here Scott McGregor, CEO of Broadcom, shows me some new wireless devices, based on Low Power Bluetooth, which will be the “hub” of a new kind of “personal cloud” that will connect sensors and wearable computers to our smartphones of the future. These devices can support hundreds of other wireless devices, each with sensors, lights, or controllers for things on us or around us. This has deep implications for our contextual future (I’m writing a book, titled “Age of Context”). These new devices will cost less than $10 (wholesale) and run on a small…

  • Why Do Some Old Programming Languages Never Die?

    Lauren Orsini
    1 Sep 2014 | 9:01 am
    Many of today’s most well-known programming languages are old enough to vote. PHP is 20. Python is 23. HTML is 21. Ruby and JavaScript are 19. C is a whopping 42 years old. Nobody could have predicted this. Not even computer scientist Brian Kernighan, co-author of the very first book on C, which is still being printed today. (The language itself was the work of Kernighan's co-author Dennis Ritchie, who passed away in 2011.)“I dimly recall a conversation early on with the editors, telling them that we’d sell something like 5,000 copies of the book,” Kernighan told me in a recent…

  • The Secret To Hiring Great Developers Is Hiding In Plain Sight

    Everyone wants to hire more engineers, including you, driving software salaries through the roof. Unfortunately, it's very likely that you don't have the slightest clue how to recruit well.Take heart. While your ability to spot real talent in an interview may be weak, open source makes it relatively easy to see who can actually code, and who simply knows how to answer useless, abstruse questions. Engineering SuccessFinding great technical talent is important. In fact, in a world increasingly run by developers, I'd argue that it's the most important thing any company does,…
  • Watch Out: Mobile Search Will Make Facebook Stalking Easier Than Ever

    You may want to take a quick gander through your entire Facebook history, because Facebook is testing a feature that makes your status updates searchable on mobile. And I bet there are some updates you just wouldn’t want to be found.The feature isn't entirely new; Facebook began making all your updates searchable on the Web last year as part of its Graph Search function. That uses Facebook’s massive social database to churn out results to highly specific queries like, “Friends who like pizza." Searching posts and status updates isn't available for everyone yet, even on the…

    In the 1966-1967 period, NASA began serious planning for its post-Apollo future.

Our society’s rapid abandonment of the moon causes me to question whether we have every truly qualified as […]

    1 Aug 2014 | 3:41 pm
    Jim Frederick, the first editor I had during my time as a tech writer for TIME, died unexpectedly on Thursday night. He was only 42, and I’m still in shock. The loss would be incalculable no matter what the circumstances, but it feels especially jarring and surreal given the bright future Jim was building for himself. Along with his wife Charlotte, he’d just switched coasts from New York to San Francisco in order to start a media consultancy. (I got the LinkedIn notification formally announcing the news just yesterday morning.) Jim’s most obvious legacy will be his work as a…
  • I’m Going to Want a Car With Built-In LTE…Eventually

    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,…
  • A Celebration of James Garner’s Polaroid Commercials

    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…

The answer is this: the U.S. is not among the twenty-five wettest countries in the world. It’s actually number thirty-seven.  The wettest country in the world is Belarus, whose citizens drink an average of 14.37 liters of booze per person.

    The Soderberghian style, sex, and settings of 'Out Of Sight': Noel Murray: We should acknowledge how great George Clooney is in this movie. Jennifer Lopez is wonderful too—so much so that it’s a shame she didn’t stay the course as a movie star, rather than focusing so much of her energy on pop music—but Clooney has had such a strong post-Out Of Sight career that it’s easy to forget how this film righted his reputation. He’d made a ton of money with the first couple of films he starred in after leaving the TV series ER, but few critics took him seriously as an actor. Around the…

From the article: "Ash3D helped the researchers understand how the previous eruptions created a widespread distribution of ash in places in the park's periphery. Aside from probing ash-distribution patterns, the Ash3D can also be used to identify potential hazards that volcanoes in Alaska may bring."Read more of this…

In 2009 almost €425,000 ($555,000) was paid out to hunters in compensation for wild boar meat that was too contaminated to be sold.

  • Apple Claim Chowder: Killers

    John Kirk
    1 Sep 2014 | 3:18 am
    With an Apple Event fast approaching, I’m reviewing critiques of past Apple Events to see how accurate they were. Turns out, not very. Critique is needed and welcome. Repeated errors? Not so much. Killers There is a long, sordid history of products being introduced as iPod, iPhone, and iPad Killers. You know the deal. Product “X” is introduced and it will be an Apple Killer because hypothetical products of the future are always superior to Apple products of today, yada, yada, yada. The problem with this theory is that repeated experience has shown that it just ain’t…

    You want to talk about Apple. I understand. They are the biggest tech company in the world. Their products are used by hundreds of millions. Oh, and next week there’s — OMG! — a major Apple event, not at Moscone Center in San Francisco but at Flint Center in Cupertino, the very same location where the original Mac was introduced and where the phoenix-like (i)Mac was introduced, and this can only mean… A new Mac? How can that be? We are all expecting an iWatch. And a large, new iPhone. Two! Some of us are even expecting an iPad XL, complete with badly needed…

    Apple has scheduled an Event for Tuesday, September 9, 2014. Apple’s Events attract critics the way a trailer park attracts tornados. Good analysis and insightful critiques are expected and welcome, however many critics merely repeat the same discredited arguments over and over and over again. Some people simply never learn from their mistakes. Which reminds me of a joke: An Apple critic with two very red ears went to his doctor. The doctor asked him what had happened. “I was ironing a shirt and the phone rang,” he said. “But instead of picking up the phone, I accidentally picked…

While these interviews have been a great experience for me to learn from some of the biggest names out there, the main advantage has been the relationships I have created.

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

    Since we're taking the day off for Labor Day today, we pushed our usual weekend posts out a bit, so this is appearing here on Monday. This week we wrote about a crazy law proposed by Rep. Mike Honda that would make merely possessing or buying "body armor" a crime that could result in 10 years in jail. His theory was that this armor makes it easier for people to commit crimes and thus harder for the police to shoot them down.

As you hopefully know by now, this is in response to the Supreme Court's "you're a cable company!" ruling. The broadcasters, of course, just want Aereo to die, so they claim that even if the Supreme Court declared it a cable company, the company still can't pay statutory rates.

After doing the XTERRA Malibu Creek Challenge 22K race in May, I had started eyeing the Bulldog race and immediately started training for it. I took a bit of circuitous route though, doing a series of 5K races including the Father’s Day 5K race and three of the fun “Boogie Nights” 5K races that were held on Wednesday afternoons near Surfer’s Point in Ventura.

I finally decided on running my first 5K race, the inaugural Father’s Day 5K 10K Race in Ventura on June 15. This race had a couple of appealing aspects – it had a beach cruiser giveaway and the course happens to be on one of my favorite training routes. I also liked the idea of doing a 5K run to determine my “5K pace” which is helpful for planning workouts. For example, if I’m doing a certain type of interval run I can determine the pace based on an actual 5K…

    Beats headphones aren’t exactly beloved in the audiophile community and yet Dr. Dre’s company still gets away with charging an obscene $300 per pair for its Beats Studio Headphones. Why? A new MKBHD video that went viral over the weekend does a nice job of breaking things down: Basically, Beats can get away with charging so much more for its headphones thanks to the magic of branding. MKBHD sharply observes that Beats was the first headphones company to really take branding and packaging seriously, which is appropriate enough seeing as how the company that just bought Beats for $3 billion…

    A very interesting book just hit the market. Written by Martine Rothblatt -- apparently she is America's top paid female CEO -- its title is Virtually Human: The Promise -- and the Peril -- of Digital Immortality. The subject is digital clones, and Rothblatt goes into depth about what they are, when they are coming, and the likelihood they eventually will have equal human rights. The premise is fascinating, and I now can foresee a future when we won't be able to survive successfully without one -- and that future is coming damned fast.

Its first stable version was just released in June -- yet it displays more performance traits and sophistication than many Linux distros that have been searching for an audience for years. In the crowded Linux distro field, it is very rare to find a newcomer that is not like any of the others. It is also rare to see a first stable release offer the kind of smooth performance and expansive feature set as Peach OSI. Peach OSI is a great starting point for Linux newcomers.

Until Apple reveals the truth about its next smartphone, other manufacturers, like Huawei, are jostling for sapphire-embossed market share.

The NFC tech will enable mobile payments, Wired reported, citing sources "familiar with the matter." Wow. If this is true, it could be the catalyst that propels mobile payments into the mainstream. Right now, NFC features are commonly included on Android and Windows smartphones, but its usage is nowhere near common.

The resulting bad press could damage your brand.

Note: When people hear the name Revere, they think of these things: Paul Revere’s ride, guns, the IROC-Z automobile, lots of gold chains and language that doesn’t include the letter r at the end of a word. Information security? You probably think I’ve lost what little sanity I had. But I’m serious.

But series creator Aaron Sorkin was way ahead of his time all those years ago when he focused on Internet privacy in the season one episode “The Short List.” In the episode, Bartlet has nominated a man for the Supreme Court whose writings suggest a lack of regard for Americans’ right to privacy.

    Do you reach for the kettle when you crawl out of bed, have a cup of tea mid-morning, after every meal, and about 800 other times a day? Do you hate wandering too far out of range of people who know how to make a good PG Tips? (And if not, are you sure you’re really British?) OK, I might be exaggerating our national love of the leaf, but only a little. So it’s good to read that tea drinking is good for you, or at least better than coffee. A study in France (WTF) by Professor Nicolas Danchin looked at 131,401 people’s consumption habits. They’d all been assessed as at low risk of heart…
  • Sorry, architects: Apple’s patented its glass cube store design

    1 Sep 2014 | 7:24 am
    Put down your protractor and step away from the drafting table. Yep, it’s bad news for future architects yearning to copy pay homage to the distinctive glass cube design of Apple’s flagship store in New York: the company has patented it. According to Apple Insider, the patent was filed in October 2012 and granted last week. It names the late Steve Jobs as one of the inventors, alongside Ron Johnson, Karl Backus, Peter Bohlin, Robert Bridger, Benjamin L. Fay, and James O’Callaghan. When the 32-foot Fifth Avenue structure was built in 2006, it was made from 90 panes of glass, but…

    Do you run with music? Pumping your favourite upbeat tunes can be a great motivator and listening to a podcast is often a good way to make the most out of your gym workout time. While there’s a strong argument for ditching the tunes and practising mindful jogging – staying present and in the moment by immersing yourself in your surroundings – if you’re someone who needs a soundtrack to keep focused, the headphones that came with your phone or MP3 player are unlikely to cut the mustard. There are plenty of impressive headphone models designed especially for sport use,…

    1 Sep 2014 | 5:59 am
    A French museum of modern art has commissioned an installation that makes music from the weather. (Probably a better way to handle the end of summer than moaning to everyone you know about it being September.) With the help of digital and musical experts at the University of Minnesota, American artist David Bowen, who specialises in robotic and interactive sculptures, has created ‘Cloud Piano’: a piano that plays melodies in real time based on the shape and movement of clouds. As PSFK reports, the installation consists of a robotic device that ‘plays’ the piano based on…

    When Microsoft removed Kinect from the lower-end Xbox One bundle (making the promise of what Kinect would be go up in smoke,) it also announced that it would make the Kinect sensor for Xbox One available as a standalone purchase for anyone who might want to add it to their console after purchasing one without it, but never announced a date. Now we know that the Kinect for Xbox One will be available in stores in October, and will cost $150. It makes sense that Microsoft would offer Kinect separately, but the extra $50 that it's taking on to the price may made it a dud out of the gate,…

Cheyer elaborates: “Google Now has a huge knowledge graph—you can ask questions like ‘Where was Abraham Lincoln born?’ And it can name the city. You can also say, ‘What is the population?’ of a city and it’ll bring up a chart and answer. But you cannot say, ‘What is the population of the city where Abraham Lincoln was born?’” The system may have the data for both…

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

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

This is great, of course, but LG probably only sold a few thousand (some estimate around 3,000) OLED TVs in 2013, so monthly volume is still very low.While nobody expected the OLED TV market to take off in 2014, this will hopefully change in 2015.

    Researchers from the A*STAR institute in Singapore suggest a new design that could make STT-MRAM devices faster. Using a computational model, the researchers tried different designs for the relative orientation of the magnetic fields in both MRAM layers (the 'field-like' term).The strength of the 'field-like' term depends on the device geometry and the materials used. Devices with a strong field-like term has a greater potential to reduce switching times than for devices in which the field-like term is negligible. A better understanding of the field-like term is still needed, but this work…

  • How do I install Mavericks on my old Mac?

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

    Owen Cutajar
    23 Feb 2014 | 1:22 pm
    I was wondering if it’s possible to set up webcam to monitor my house while I’m out. What’s the best way to do this? There are a couple of options on how to do this. My very first setup, many moons ago, consisted of a laptop with a couple of USB webcams connected to it. I was using software to upload an image to an FTP server every 30 seconds. It did the job, but was a pretty flimsy setup. Today I would recommend an out-of-the-box solution called Watchbot. I have one of these little babies set up at home, and it was a doddle to set up. Here’s a photo of the little…
  • What is Bitcoin?

    Owen Cutajar
    25 Nov 2013 | 4:09 pm
    I keep seeing the word Bitcoin come up in the media and on website. What is this Bitcoin thing all about? Bitcoin is a peer-to-peer digital currency that functions without the intermediation of a central authority. It has been called a cryptocurrency because it is decentralized and uses cryptography to control transactions and prevent double-spending, a problem for digital currencies. Once validated, every individual transaction is permanently recorded in a public ledger known as the blockchain. Payment processing is done by a network of private computers often specially tailored to this…

    I’m putting together a timesheet in Excel and wanted to multiply my hours by an hourly rate. Ive been messing around for hours and reading up in the help but there’s nothing that suggests how this can be done. What’s the best way to do this? It turns out to be much easier than you think. It’s a great little technique that can be used whether you’re calculating what it costs to sit in McDonalds all day, or playing with pignose amplifiers at guitar center.

    4 Sep 2013 | 2:50 pm
    I’ve been playing with Virtual Machines for some time now, and after realising I can host a number a machines on one server I’ve come up with a plan to put all my company’s servers on one box. The tower I bought for my plan isn’t cutting it though, what do you recommend? Putting all your servers on one box is a great plan. It’s definitely more efficient than lots of small servers, both in terms of power and space. However, trying to fit them all on a tower or desktop isn’t the way forward. You need a proper server, located in a proper data centre to ensure…

    If you had said the Facebook mobile app left something to be desired two years ago, you would find few people in disagreement. It was a slow, uninspired experience that failed not only to satisfy users, but also to make any money for the social media juggernaut. Then, in 2012, Facebook realized it needed to revamp its mobile strategy and released a new and improved app with a pledge to focus on a more native experience. Now Facebook has more than a billion mobile users with more than half of its revenue coming from mobile ads — before, there were none. Those numbers are directly related to…

    Softpedia News (Sebastian Pop)
    1 Sep 2014 | 8:01 am
    ASUS has released the ROG Gladius gaming mouse, which doesn't have the best optical sensor we've ever seen, but is still pretty good at 6,400 dpi. In fact, the DPI is high enough to demand on-the-fly resolution / sensitivity adjustment, since the settings you use in a strategy game might not be the best for a fist-person shooter where you need to keep the crosshair really stable. Thus, one of the six buttons is used for resolution adjustment alone, which means that you have five left for the... (read more)

    In 2008, Apple launched the App Store for the iPhone. It quickly came to define what an app store was all about. And what it was about was games and other consumer-focused tasks. But travel back in time a few years before that, and you find yourself in a world before the iPhone, when smartphones were not on consumer wish lists. That was the world of the Palm Pilot, Windows Mobile, and Blackberry, back when the company was known as RIM. The only consumers who sported these phones were wannabes with too much money to spend. At least, that was the perception. These were business tools that gave…

    So here I was wondering, “Ooh… I wonder what is on the Agenda for this years VMworld!” only to initially find disappointment, disappointment and sadness. A search for “VMworld” from my iPad Mini revealed there was one application available for download, I pulled it down ‘registered’ using it, and well, THAT didn’t work, Do not download or use the app which looks like THIS. I mean, it is cute and all but it does not have any data loaded for the event and will not return the results you are looking for! But I also noticed that when I went to do the search in the first place that…

      Beefing up your free Dropbox account with extra space isn’t hard if you know what to look for, but the company just smartly streamlined its Pro plans in case you need even more cloud action. Kiss those tricky tiered plans goodbye: all that’s left now is a 1TB option that’ll set you back $9.99 a month (or $99 a year). Not a bad deal considering that’s how much you would’ve paid Dropbox monthly for 100GB of cloud storage just a few days ago, and the company is sweetening the pot with some neat new sharing and security features too.

  • iPhone 6 – Speculation

    20 Aug 2014 | 9:28 am
    The presumptive name for Apple’s next-generation iPhone is iPhone 6. Yes, it will be the 8th generation phone in Apple’s product lineup, internally referred to as iPhone7,1, but don’t let those numbers distract you. Apple can call any phone it releases by any marketing name it wants and the next number after 5/5s is 6. So, iPhone 6. iPhone 6 release date speculation If Apple holds to the same pattern as the last two years, the iPhone 6 will be announced on or around September 9, 2014, with a release date of September 19, 2014.

    These are decidedly fast-paced times that we are living in, with the developments in digital technology gathering pace at an unstoppable rate, and sometimes these developments do not take the predictable path. When Apple made the decision to embrace HTML 5, rather than Adobe Flash as a platform for its devices, this was seen as (to put it kindly) an eccentric move – but a few years down the line and no-one is talking about it in those terms, as HTML 5 has trounced Flash in the subsequent battle. In fact, one of the major reasons why HTML 5 has risen to prominence so rapidly in the period…

In fact, there’s even a whole branch of robotics called “biomimetics” dedicated to that single premise.

    Since we're taking the day off for Labor Day today, we pushed our usual weekend posts out a bit, so this is appearing here on Monday. This week we wrote about a crazy law proposed by Rep. Mike Honda that would make merely possessing or buying "body armor" a crime that could result in 10 years in jail. His theory was that this armor makes it easier for people to commit crimes and thus harder for the police to shoot them down. But That One Guy got the most insightful comment of the week by pointing out how ridiculous that logic is: So if his justification for this is 'armored assailants', one…

We asked how they could claim to be serving the public while shutting that public out with paywalls; we noted that comparing the dollar value of print and digital readers was missing the point; and we called out CNN for ripping off the reporting of others while crowing about "parasitic aggregators."

    Aereo is back in a district court trying its "okay, fine, you say we look like a duck, we'll act like a duck" explanation so that it can stay in business and pay the statutory rates for a cable company. As you hopefully know by now, this is in response to the Supreme Court's "you're a cable company!" ruling.

  • Awesomeness: Millions Of Public Domain Images Being Put Online

    Mike Masnick
    29 Aug 2014 | 5:57 pm
    Here's some nice news. Kalev Leetaru has been liberating a ton of public domain images from books and putting them all on Flickr. He's been going through Internet Archive scans of old, public domain books, isolating the images, and turning them into individual images. Because, while the books and images are all public domain, very few of the images have been separated from the books and released in a digital format. To achieve his goal, Mr Leetaru wrote his own software to work around the way the books had originally been digitised. The Internet Archive had used an optical character…

    SkinYoga is the brainchild of sister-trio: Radhika, Jagriti and Deepika.

  • Mourning Beard

    C.K. Sample III
    13 Aug 2014 | 9:36 am
    The last time I shaved was the morning of my father’s funeral, which was a month ago. I wanted to have a physical sign of my mourning. Originally I thought to shave my head, but the first thing that Dad said to me when I first arrived in the hospital to see him before he passed was “C.K., your hair is beautiful!” I decided to grow a mourning beard and give it at least a month. It’s been a month, and as you can see, I’m not genetically inclined to grow a beard. Or at least not quickly. It’s actually on the verge of becoming a real beard, and I’m not…

    I’ve just been really, really, incredibly busy. I see other people giving up on blogging. Like Scoble today, who is most likely doing it for a stunt, like he’s done before with Google+ and Posterous (or as I like to call them, dying and dead). It’s a stupid move. The only reason I post as much to twitter as I do is because I have a backup of all that data here on this blog. This is my space. It’s my corner of the Internet that I have full control over. It’s not some other company owning everything I post. That’s important. Since we all first started…

We know she’s a girl and not at risk for various genetic abnormalities thanks to a new blood test that Kristin took before the sonogram. The videos are great, as she’s moving and kicking around. She’s currently the size of one of the small action figures that Jackson plays with. It’s crazy how much more detailed these things are just about 4 years after when we had all this done for Jackson.

    The very characteristics that make social media incredibly appealing to consumers are the same ones that make it ripe for scammers seeking to exploit the value and power of established brands.

The launch jitters are out of the way, and the early mistakes have been made. The Xbox One has gotten over Ryse: Son of Rome, while the PS4 and the Wii U deftly avoided early flops by not having very many games to begin with.

    It has been well established that SEO is just as essential to a blog writer as it to is to a website content writer. If your blog content is not garnering a good readership despite the high quality of content in the post, it could mean that search engines are not finding your blog. On the other hand, sacrificing quality for the sake of SEO is not prudent, either. Ideally, striking the balance between quality and SEO would not only open your blog post to discovery, but can even lead to and sustain a loyal readership.

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…

Before customers get their first chance to see or touch a new Apple product, the company has carefully orchestrated almost every one of its public appearances: controlled leaks and advance briefings for favored writers, an invite-only media debut, and a special early review process for a group of pre-screened, known-positive writers.

After surviving the implosion of Palm and a rocky acquisition by HP, LG stepped in to buy the team.

To create a unit that was meant to help the company to beat competitors like Samsung with Silicon Valley smarts. A disruptive force. Eighteen months later, the…

    Forgive me, but you’ll find at the bottom of this post yet another Ice Bucket Challenge video. I was on vacation and somewhat off the grid a couple of weeks ago when the ALS (Lou Gehrig’s Disease) Ice Bucket Challenge meme hit, so I wasn’t quite sure what the shout-out from Hammock president John Lavey was all about when it hit my in-box. By the time I could get around to responding to his challenge, the meme had grown to epic status. How epic? Today (August 24, 2014), the ice bucket full of contributions being poured onto the ALS Association has crossed the $70 million…

This New York Times interactive map of recent fighter jet and drone strikes in northern Iraq makes me wonder how the use of visualized data used by news media in the form of maps would have changed the way people understood, in real-time, previous wars and conflicts. Yes, social media is changing the face of journalism, but so is data-driven journalism and visualized data of this quality. (Not to be confused with the lack of quality found in the vast majority marketing-oriented infographics.) A couple of weeks ago, for the Hammock…

The leak comes in the shape of a UAP (User Agent Profile) and the leak gives us a huge hint of what will the Galaxy Note 4 pack. Other than the User Agent Profile, another leak showing the IFA poster for the Note 4 was also spotted that also gave away the hint regarding the…

    Upcoming Moto X+1 from Motorola has been enjoying quite a lot of attention for some time. Appearing in numerous leaks, we now have a very good understanding about how the device will be looking and what specifications it will boast. The latest leak is coming from TKTechNews which shows us the back of the device. Now the back does look quite similar to the ones we have seen in previous leaks, but… there is one small change. It seems that this particular Moto X+1 is touting a leather back. This could very well be a result of customisation done through Moto Maker. There are chances that…

    Almost everyone who is somewhat interested in technology knows about OnePlus and how they stormed the internet with their first ever smart phone and dubbed it as the ‘flagship killer’ of 2014. The catchphrase was somewhat true as the OnePlus One managed to best the likes of Galaxy S5, Galaxy Note 3, Xperia Z2 and HTC One M8. And the best part? The phone was available at the staggering price of $350 (For the 64 gigs version) However, there was a slight issue. To buy a OnePlus One you would have needed an invite, and invites weren’t easy to get. Well, the good news is that the…

    J. Angelo Racoma

    In the world of tech journalism and hardware reviews, AnandTech is considered as a leading source of breaking news and balanced reviews. Founded in 1997 by Anand Lal Shimpi, the site started out with a focus on motherboards, but then evolved along with the times. AnandTech has since branched out into covering and reviewing CPUs, video cards, notebook computers, mobile devices and, in the words of founder Shimpi himself, “anything that mattered.” Yesterday, Shimpi announced that he was leaving AnandTech, having served the site as publisher and editor for almost 18 years.

    With Bitcoin gaining popularity and then some semblance of stability in its real-world value, will the cryptocurrency remain in the lead amongst other digital tender? Virtual currencies are not exactly new. While purely digital currencies like Bitcoin are often the subject of news today, technology startups have explored virtual currencies as early as the 1990s. Take for example, which launched a currency called “Beenz” meant for earning loyalty points and paying online. After raising $100 million in VC funding, the startup failed to gain traction and eventually folded…

Below is a teaser trailer Samsung released Friday to hype the phablet’s launch. The trailer itself is rather scant on details of the phone’s actual specs and details, only hyping the phone’s multitasking ability. “Share, win, write, create” are some of the keywords Samsung uses to promote the phone’s multitasking features.

    I have clients who diligently do the work — grow their lists, communicate value to them, collect testimonials, communicate them, ask for referrals, etc. — and enjoy revenue growth of 20% or more in their first year with me. Almost always, this is millions of dollars in new sales. I have other clients who listen to my advice, but do not apply it. They don’t change their behavior much, and do not enjoy the results they deserve. Further, their market does not get to benefit from their enormous value. You already know what to do. The question is, are you doing it? The distance…

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

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

In fact, it was that very thing that caused him to come out in the first place. Rather than rave and rant, Takei chooses to use humor as his weapon. Maybe 99% of people will dig it, but there is always that one oddball at the Golden Corral. After enough people griped over certain comical items that Takei had posted, the Star Trek alum took to his page for a longer post. It turns out that he is indeed sensitive to what might be…

    For those of us who have friends who fly as a profession, we have definitely heard them say they have a flying or a pilot’s licence after clocking so and so number of Nautical Miles or hours etc. However, on the contrary, if you read on the internet, equally possible is somebody calling the flying licence to be flying certificate. So which one exactly it is? A common notion so far has been that those who are flying commercial aircraft or jets own a flying certificate, while flying licence is reserved for those, who are on space duties. However, this seems a little off the hook in all…

We saw that with the smartphones where every second day, a new device was launched until it became blatantly clear that was not working, we saw that with tablets which never worked, and to a smaller scale we are seeing that with watches now. It has hardly been an year since Samsung introduced its first smart watch, the Gear and since then we have already had about 5 other iteration and that is not…

    11 Aug 2014 | 5:23 am
    In past few years, we have witnessed unprecedented growth of Android as a successful OS for smartphones and tablets and it has come a long way since it was first launched — almost to a point where it has nearly kicked other mobile OS like Windows Mobile and Blackberry out of their own turf and is locking horns with Apple’s own iOS to a fair fight. Today there are more than one billion users who use Android on their smartphones and tablets but did you know that Android was NOT Google’s idea, originally? That, Android is Open-Source and today it is used on Google Glass,…

  • Lantronix Rallies Around Digital Classroom with Launch of Print and Learn (PAL) Program

    Mark Tullio
    29 Aug 2014 | 9:53 am
    According to the Center of Digital Education, K-12 schools in the U.S. will spend almost $10 billion on educational technology in 2014. In higher education, the National Retail Federation states that student spending for electronics (tablets, laptops, etc.) is up 20% from last year. There’s no doubt that classrooms are going digital – yet even with the increase in tablets, Chromebooks and other mobile devices, there remains a strong need to print. But printing from these mobile devices can be a challenge – with software downloads and kludgy apps that may or may not be effective. With…

One of the critical success factors for any tech company is “strategic partnerships.” Nowhere is this more critical, and more relevant, than during a market transition – and that’s…

    Microsoft is taking a new initiative that will enable the company to mold a prosperous future for itself. Unfortunately, the company’s Messenger platform is not going to be a part of the utopic vision the company’s CEO Satya Nadella has for the tech giant. The objectives that Nadella has laid out are extremely ambitious; there are several sacrifices that will have to be made for the company to reach the platform that has been laid out in the timeline. Not long ago, nearly 18,000 employees were laid off as part of the changes that the company plans to implement in the coming months.

    While the Titan-Z graphic card released by NVIDIA is placed in an echelon of performance that only one GPU is currently able to match, its exorbitant price  of $3,000 and buggy drivers won’t make the richest computer gamers enticed to purchase it. This is probably because it’s closest rival; AMD’s R9 295 x 2 performs equally against its adversary and costs literally half the price of the Titan Z ($1,499). Perhaps NVIDIA has got its act together from being inebriated, because the price slashing of the company’s current flagship GPU has begun and the best part is that the price slash…

    Instagram , the image filtering app released for multiple mobile operating systems, has released another app, calling it the Hyperlapse. This app has currently been released for the iPhone, making it exclusive so far. Instagram’s Hyperlapse is able to time lapse recorded videos and smooth out tracking shots. The great thing about the app is that users will not require any add on or app to smooth out the recorded video (such as a Steadicam system) and the app itself will be able to carry out that function. Hyperlapse was originated from Luma, which is a software image stabilization system…

The tests can be custom, include navigation flow, a quick visual glance test or an actual navigation flow test.

A new report has surfaced saying Apple has reached an agreement with American Express to bring new mobile payment systems for the upcoming iPhone. This is in line with part leaks that have shown the presence of NFC (finally) in the iPhone 6. There are credit card companies that support NFC use for wireless payments and hopefully Apple’s supposed entry into the space might push merchants to support this kind of payment system. We’ll just have to wait a bit more to see if there is any truth to the…

    Twitter wants to lure in new users with a more follow-friendly sign-up process. The app will now ask you to choose topics you are interested in and then will offer you suggestions based on your selection. You will even be able to view recent tweets from these accounts to give you a better sense of whether you’d want to follow them or not. It will admittedly get a bit tedious though because the default is you will follow all the suggestions and you’d have to manually deselect those you don’t want to watch.

    1 Sep 2014 | 2:37 am
    Earlier, we shared ‘How to root Xiaomi Mi 3 Indian version’ easily by installing the necessary files through Updater, both for rooting and unrooting. Perhaps, if you’ve updated Mi 3 or Mi 4 to MIUI v6 Developer ROM (based on Android 4.4.4) then you might be looking to root your MIUI 6 device. Well, that’s not required as MIUI developer ROMs are rooted by default! But the root permissions aren’t provided to apps by default. Though, one can grant root access to an app through the Permissions app but that’s pretty annoying in MIUI 6 as there are 5 pop-ups, each with a timer of 5…

      Ten years. That’s how far away in the past the Google IPO lies. Ten years of explosive growth for the digital world, ten gruesome years for legacy media. Here is the lost decade, revisited in charts and numbers.  The asymmetry is staggering. By every measure, the digital sphere grew explosively thanks to a combination of known factors: a massive influx of capital; the radical culture shift fostered by a “blank slate” approach; obsessive agility in search of new preys; flattened hierarchies; shrugged-off acceptance of failure; refocusing on the customer;  a keen sense of…

Let me slip into something more comfortable: Devil’s Advocate robes. Thus togged out, I will explain why this Apple + IBM rapprochement won’t work – or, worse, it will. First, the clash of cultures.

Most people who own a PC use it for countless personal tasks like banking, communicating with friends and managing personal contacts. And most people enable saved passwords in their browsers and applications because it’s more convenient. Anyone with access to your computer could snoop on every aspect of your life. The common response is to secure a computer with a password. But sometimes that’s not enough or, in the case of family PCs, not possible. Fortunately, there are several ways to see what’s…

    Rice University researchers have created a CMOS-compatible, biomimetic color photodetector that directly responds to red, green and blue light in much the same way the human eye does. The new device was created by researchers at Rice’s Laboratory for Nanophotonics (LANP) and is described online in a new study in the journal Advanced Materials. It uses an aluminum grating that can be added to silicon photodetectors with the silicon microchip industry’s mainstay technology, “complementary metal-oxide semiconductor,” or more

Since it features a full-blown Windows 8 Pro operating system, I could use for just about anything including Photoshop or running Ubuntu in Virtualbox when coding. The 128 GB model goes for about $999. Throwing in a type keyboard brings the price tag up to about $1,100.

    The Affordable Care Act focuses on expanding health insurance coverage to millions of Americans. Americans while getting enrolled in specific health benefit plans and choosing physicians, must consider whether the physician will be able to provide high-quality care. Often, when it comes to defining a quality healthcare provider there is considerable difference between how experts and consumers actually define it. Being licensed doesn’t necessarily mean that a doctor is capable and up-to-date on all best practices. A new poll conducted by the Associated Press-NORC Center for Public…

Inappropriate use of the EHR system has been a strong concern since 2012 with the Departments of Justice and Health and Human Services alerting hospitals about the wrong use of this system. Hospitals that used this system were billing Medicare for a significantly more amount than hospitals using paper records. They were charging higher for a large…

Nearly one third of the 14th annual list are connected to MIT, including 10 alumni. At least one MIT alumnus was named in four of the list’s five categories: inventors, entrepreneurs, visionaries, and pioneers. Julie Shah ’04, SM ’06, PhD ’11 MIT Assistant…

    A decade ago this month, Nick Mathewson ’00 MEng ’00 co-presented a paper at the USENIX Security Conference in San Diego on a project the U.S. Naval Research Laboratory hired him to code. The paper was “Tor: The Second-Generation Onion Router.” Nick Mathewson ’00 MEng ’00. Those who have followed the headlines of the last year know what a remarkable run the free anonymity software has had.

    Boston graffiti map honors this Banksy quote: “Art should comfort the disturbed and disturb the comfortable.” Maps reveal much more than geography. The MIT Media Lab’s Social Computing group is meshing data and design to produce a cascade of maps that humanize and personalize  selected creative cities. They call each map an “atlas of experience.” Their maps, produced though a project called You Are Here, target the kinds of detail that can matter in urban living. For example, you can find a map showing the fastest transportation mode in Chicago (and many other cities); the…

  • Happy 9th Birthday Joomla

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

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

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

    Some people are able to open up a graphic editor and produce stunning original artwork for their web sites. I'm not one of those people. For me it's usually a case of searching the net in the hope of finding the perfect graphic that exactly matches my needs. Usually I fail in that search and end up with the closest thing I can find. Yesterday I found a new web site that does all the hard work for you. With Canva you can quickly and easily take any of their stock elements and completely customise them to your exact needs.

Every Joomla user knows that they can use the awesome Akeeba Backup to take a backup of their site quickly and easily and even automate the process so that the backup is taken daily, with the backup archives stored in a secure off-site location.

    All businesses need to appear near, or at the top, of search engine results lists. This is the first place that consumers turn when looking for any kind of product or service, and they will rarely click past the first few results.

  • Error with your Windows Phone OS backups? Here is how to get them back on track

    Daniel Rubino
    1 Sep 2014 | 3:36 pm
    One of the great features in Windows Phone 8.1 is the ability to restore from a backup when setting up a new device. Everything from your Start screen layout to the apps themselves and even some settings can all be 'restored' if you ever change devices, or wish to hard-reset and start anew. However, a few people have noticed that under Settings > Backup, there is an error message noting that the last backup attempt has failed. Even more worrisome, you may not even know it. Yikes! The good news is there is a fast and simple way to get this fixed, and you may want to double check that your…

    It is no big secret that money is a major concern for many startups. Unless they have a hefty investment or a fair amount of funding, startups often rely on bootstrapping. Startups need a space for their base of operations; however, a dedicated office space can exceed far beyond the entrepreneur’s budget. Many entrepreneurs rely on coffee shops, cafes, or even working from home in their early years.But there is another option for startups, who require a space without the high costs. Coworking spaces are an attractive alternative, providing a dedicated space at a cost-effective…

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

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

    In my observation, if there's one thing you lawyers love, it's repeating yourselves. No, not when you speak; it's when you write. Y'all recycle so much old material from briefs and other documents, it puts Ed Begley, Jr. to shame. Some of the problems with all that cutting and pasting are pretty obvious: another client's name being left in (oops) or funky formatting that doesn't match the new document. But others aren't.

    It goes without saying that there has been an over-arching health and wellness trend in the food & beverage space for the past several decades, ever since we learned (or at least we thought we learned) that our beloved bacon and butter may be contributing to our waistlines and our cholesterol levels. Of course, over the years as health care professionals, manufacturers & consumers have become more educated, the factors that define “healthy” foods have evolved. These days the trend seems to have shifted from low fat & low cholesterol to benefits including organic, high protein…

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…

    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.

  • How to change IE Spelling language in Windows 8

    31 Aug 2014 | 12:35 pm
    When I first changed from Windows 7 to Windows 8. One of the first things I noticed was that even I was running Internet Explorer 11 on both operating systems, spelling control was not working the same way in IE 11 on Windows 8/Windows 8.1. In Windows 7 I was used to right click on a misspelled word and chance the language in case I was writing in another language in my default. In Windows 8 that is not the possible. My default language is Danish, but I often write in English as well. It toke me quite some time to figure out how I could get it to work in Windows 8, because I think it is a…

  • Google Authorship Comes to a Crashing Halt

    Dave Paul
    29 Aug 2014 | 12:54 pm
    Yesterday Google announced the end of its great Google Authorship experiment as it relates to search results. Author snippets won’t be shown on SERPs and authorship markup will not weigh in search ranking, effective immediately. Authorship has had a mixed history. While Google was interested in the idea as far back as 2007, it was only with the launch Google+ that it gained any traction. Suddenly, authors could link all their work back to a single Plus profile and get credit across the web. But the victory was short-lived: by 2013 Google reduced how many author snippets it showed per…

  • Why Mobile Payments, Not A Bigger Screen, Will Be The Defining Feature Of The iPhone 6 (AAPL)

    Dave Smith
    1 Sep 2014 | 1:05 pm
    Mobile payments is an idea that sounds much better than it is in practice. At least for right now. Despite the efforts of PayPal, Square, and even Google Wallet, few people have actually replaced their wallets with their smartphones, which was the original idea behind mobile payments: Since most financial transactions are electronic these days (sorry cash), we should be able to make our wallets and our phones into one single product. Apple’s alleged mobile payments system, which was actually patented years ago as the “iWallet,” describes how users could control their financial…

    Apple is expected to introduce a new mobile payment service on Sept. 9, which is expected to be a standout feature in the new iPhone 6. But based on Nielsen data from July, which was charted for us by Statista, most people are using mobile payments by presenting a barcode or QR code on their smartphone, which is popular among ticketing agencies for transportation and sporting events. While iPhones (and almost all other smartphones) are capable of presenting visible barcodes or QR codes, reports say Apple’s new mobile payments solution will leverage the company’s Touch ID security…

    According to Re/code, Apple’s first wearable device will be shown off at the company’s Sept. 9 event, but it won’t be available to purchase until 2015. There’s one very good reason for that, and it can be summed up in one word: Apps.  When the iPhone first launched, many were skeptical of its high-end starting price of $500, particularly for an untested product with a measly 4 GB of storage space. Many are similarly skeptical of the iWatch's alleged $400 price tag. That phone was a success anyway, but iPhone sales didn't really take off — or become the iPhone experience we’re…

    In a recent blog post, ICANN (Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers) revealed a scam in which registrants of top-level domains like .com and .net are approached by fraudsters and told that they need to buy a certificate to “protect their domain”. Although the certificates are well designed and incorporate official ICANN graphics, the […]

    The Sorcerer
    1 Sep 2014 | 1:57 pm
    Hi, First, congratulations to you for 1up in your career. You were a senior reviewer in Tech2 for (I am assuming) a very long time. Being a corporate marketing and PR even for a brand like Asus is a huge responsibility. I hope you do it to he best of your abilities. I as a reviewer would like to remind you of few errors that you’ve made in your past reviewers, which may have inadvertently made to lose their hard earned money and maybe even make lose interest in PC overall. To ensure that this doesn’t get brushed away as a ‘rant’, I’ll use your last graphic card…
  • Gigabyte Z97X-SOC Motherboard Review

    The Sorcerer
    1 Sep 2014 | 3:14 am
    Gigabyte shipped its Z97X-SOC motherboard for testing, which was also used to test Intel Devil’s Canyon 4790K processor. The board uses orange and black colour combo and its aimed to attract gamers/ enthusiasts. In my opinion, having a motherboard designed and marketed specifically for extreme overclocking to a crowd where they’ll either use an air or liquid cooling solution (either closed looped, pre-built or custom) will make them look somewhere else, probably similar version of the board minus the switches. This is something that not just applies towards Gigabyte. Of most of…
  • CM Storm Rapid-i (SGK-4040-GKCM1) Gaming Mechanical Keyboard Review

    The Sorcerer
    30 Aug 2014 | 3:23 pm
    CM Storm Rapid-i mechanical gaming keyboard is something that I wish their CM Storm Quickfire TK was- a small keyboard with directional keys. The main cons I highlighted was that CM should have ditched the Numpad and provide dedicated buttons for navigation and special keys. The end result is what you see here! A lot of people do not use Numpad, and if you buy a full-sized mechanical keyboard, you end up paying a premium for a keyboard where you’ll use it far lesser than you would do for multimedia and even macro keys. Keyboard designs like this help to keep the cost down while providing…

    The Sorcerer
    27 Aug 2014 | 2:43 pm
    Intel talked a lot about the Haswell Refresh processors codenamed Devil’s Canyon, and they were very excited about it . The newer Haswell (codename: Devil’s Canyon) came with certain improvements in comparison to earlier processors. Difference was mostly on the physical side of the processor. Intel used a ‘next generation thermal interface material’ in the hopes that it would please enthusiasts and overclockers who found that older model Haswell processors used a thermal paste under the integrated heatsink, though many would have preferred to see Intel using solder.

    Hilary Jansen
    28 Aug 2014 | 2:11 pm
    These are invaluable insights from an editor that I plan to use as I format my PR and content marketing projects. It’s so easy to slip into auto-pilot and push out the company name/ brand/ products rather than think about what will resonate with audiences and make them engage. Some of these tips are very specific (e.g. try to keep all paragraphs under 30 words and to three lines) and I plan to put this tip into practice and test the results. A little restriction on my writing never hurt! Which tips are new to you? This is an edited version of Timeless Storytelling Tips from Former PR…

Not only can it be a time suck, but if your audience isn’t there – why bother?

    If you’re reading this article, you’ve probably deleted something important on your computer that you need to recover ASAP! Hopefully, the files or folders that are now gone were deleted only a short while ago because the more data that gets written to the disk, the more chance that the section of the hard drive that contained the data will be overwritten with new data, thereby making your recovery chances a lot lower. Before we get into the different ways to recover deleted files, first make sure you check a couple of things: 1. Always check the recycle bin to make sure your…

    25 Aug 2014 | 6:54 pm
    Trying to figure out where all of your hard drive space has disappeared to is often quite a challenge in Windows with all of the hidden folders and temp directories! As an IT Professional, one tool that I use almost every other day is TreeSize, a small utility that tells you exactly where all of your hard drive space is currently allocated. Using TreeSize Free edition, you can immediately see which folders and sub-folders are taking up the most hard disk space. Once you have that info, it’s a piece of cake to quickly free up hard drive space taken up by temp files or other useless data.

    John Morris

    Some clients just suck. There’s really no nice way to put it. Learning how to expose and avoid them BEFORE you let them hire you will keep you from tearing your hair out (and stave off the gray hair for just a few more years). Of course, it’s fun to joke about it… but dealing with hellish clients is actually serious as… well hell! That’s because getting good at avoiding clients who just don’t fit well with your personality and how you operate will help you avoid getting seriously burnt out and overwhelmed. And, it’ll keep you loving your job which…

    I was recently asked: “How do I fill out my profile on sites like Elance and oDesk? How do I fill them out in a way that’s honest but more impressive than leaving them blank?” Here’s the simplest way I can put this… Your unique situation can and SHOULD be positioned to highlight your advantages. For example, when I started looking to get hired for freelance IT jobs I was completely self-taught and I believed that was a disadvantage. I believed coders who had gone to school were in a better position than me and would have an easier time convincing clients to hire…

    If you’ve been following technology since the mid-90s, you’d probably vaguely remember IBM’s “thinking” computers and how they seemed to be the prelude into what could possibly become a revolution in information gathering and logic processing. After “Deep Blue” beat Gary Kasparov at chess in 1996 and “Watson” aced a game of Jeopardy in 2011, it became clear that computers were destined for something greater than following simple instructions.

    Microsoft has announced service enhancements and a reduced price scheme for its Azure SQL database, as a result of customer feedback.

  • Goodbye Windows, I'm sticking with Chrome OS

    1 Sep 2014 | 1:07 pm
    Earlier this summer I wrote about moving to a Chromebook -- I'm working from my porch and I want something easily portable. I stated at the time that I was not sure where things would lead when the weather took a turn for the cooler.

Don't get me wrong -- I still see a need for the platform, but I simply don't see it for myself. I write in Word, which has a Chrome app. I edit images, which Pixlr handles quite well. Beyond that, I do…

First, the 0.1 part is a video of a purported 5.5-inch iPhone 6L body (below).

  • 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…

    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.

    Beats headphones aren’t exactly beloved in the audiophile community and yet Dr. Dre’s company still gets away with charging an obscene $300 per pair for its Beats Studio Headphones. Why? A new MKBHD video that went viral over the weekend does a nice job of breaking things down: Basically, Beats can get away with charging so much more for its headphones thanks to the magic of branding.

  • How does the Huawei Ascend P7 compare?

    Tim Dickinson
    21 Aug 2014 | 6:06 am
    Telecommunications giant Huawei is making another push to grab some of the smartphone market share outside of China with the Ascend P7, but how does the flagship 4G smartphone compare to the leading smartphones on the market today? Design Huawei describes the phone as lighter and thinner than the competition, and they may well be right with the P7 just 6.5mm thick (139.8 x 68.8 x 6.5 mm) and weighing in at 124g. That makes it slimmer than the iPhone 5S, Samsung Galaxy S5 and Sony Xperia Z2, and lighter than its Android competitors as well. However, beyond just its size there is little in…

  • EE’s move to charge extra to skip the queue with “priority support” is a farce

    Tim Dickinson
    14 Aug 2014 | 10:09 am
    Mobile phone network EE has made a controversial move by offering customers the ability to “skip the queue” for support, angering many customers. Premium support is not a new idea, but for a company where forums are filled with complaints of people struggling with slow speeds or getting any connection at all, it looks very much like giving two fingers to their customers. People put up with poor support (and paying for it) from companies such as Ryan Air because they are offering budget basement prices – you get what you pay for. However, EE is not marketing itself as the…

Hold Security, a US-based security firm with a history of uncovering large-scale hacks, claim that a Russian cyber gang dubbed ‘Cybervor’ stole over 4.5 billion records, of which 1.2 billion appear to be unique, from 420,000 websites and FTP sites.
