  • A New Challenger Appears: Realtek Dragon NIC on ECS Z170 Motherboards

    6 Jul 2015 | 5:00 am
    When a motherboard manufacturer develops a product, it has to consider which third party controllers are going to be used. When we discuss network controllers, there are several entrants in the market that satisfy a range of prices and marketing opportunities although I perhaps would not call the motherboard network controller market competitive or crowded. When an engineer/sales rep has to choose the controller, depending on the NIC manufacturer there may also be firmware and software additions which add value. The main entrants in the network controller market for end-users are Intel,…

    Today Microsoft has finally created tables outlining what the different versions of the operating system are going to feature. It was back in May that they finally announced all of the versions of Windows 10 that are coming, but the actual features of each version was still a mystery. We could of course take an educated guess based on history, but as of today there is finally a list of all of the features broken down by version. As a refresh, on the PC there are four basic versions. Home and Pro are the two that will be available for most people to purchase, and Enterprise is available to…
  • You Might Not Get Windows 10 On July 29, But You Get A New Build Today

    2 Jul 2015 | 7:21 pm
    Another day, and another build of Windows 10 has been released to the fast ring. With Windows 10’s official release date of July 29th coming up very quickly now, Microsoft has shifted gears to bug fixes and polish. As I noted just yesterday, build 10158 and 10159 have made some big strides in stability and polish, and today’s build of 10162 is much the same. In fact, unlike all other builds so far, the blog post outlining the new build does not even list any new features other than bug fixes. The last couple of builds have all been to the fast ring. For those that don’t…

    With Intel’s latest extreme platform, Haswell-E and X99, supporting DDR4, all fingers have been pointing towards the state of DDR4 support for the 100-series motherboards and Intel’s 6th generation of processors, Skylake. At Computex we saw a number of 100-series motherboards, although I want to point out a couple which showcase a little of the DRAM support we should expect. At the Biostar booth there was a H170 motherboard and a B150 motherboard that had clearly defined DDR3 and DDR4 memory slots: The H170Z3 in show looks similar to a standard mATX motherboard using a single PCIe…

  • Google's Waze Jumps Into the Ride-Sharing Business

    6 Jul 2015 | 10:10 am
    An anonymous reader writes: Waze, the online mapping company owned by Google, is testing a ride-sharing service in Israel called RideWith. The service will allow commuters to pay drivers for rides to and from work. This is a hard limit — drivers can give no more than two rides per day. If the restriction remains after the initial test, it could be a simple way to avoid pseudo-professional drivers, and all the taxi-related legal problems that go with them (see: Uber). "RideWith calculates a cost based on the anticipated fuel consumption and 'depreciation' based on mileage, and the driver…

  • Chilling Effect of the Wassenaar Arrangement On Exploit Research

  • First Windows 10 RTM Candidate Appears

    6 Jul 2015 | 8:03 am
    Mark Wilson reports that the first RTM candidate for Windows 10 has been spotted: build 10176. Leaks and sources have suggested the company intends to finalize the operating system later this week, perhaps as early as July 9th. This would give Microsoft almost three weeks to distribute it to retailers and devicemakers before the July 29th launch date. "While the RTM process has been a significant milestone for previous releases of Windows, it’s more of a minor one for Windows 10. Microsoft is moving Windows 10 to a 'Windows as a service' model that means the operating system is…
  • Proposed Regulation Could Keep 3D-printed Gun Blueprints Offline For Good

    6 Jul 2015 | 7:21 am
    SonicSpike sends a report on a proposed update to the International Traffic in Arms (ITAR) regulations which could shut down the sharing of files for 3D printed gun parts over the internet. "Hidden within the proposal, which restricts what gear, technology, and info can and cannot be exported out of the U.S., is a ban on posting schematics for 3D printed gun parts online." This follows a lawsuit from Cody Wilson and Defense Distributed back in May fighting the federal government's command to remove blueprints for the "Liberator" 3D-printed gun from their website.

    Sometimes, in order to truly appreciate life with modern day conveniences, we have to be reminded of what life was like before them.

    I have chickens. You know, the kind that sleep in a coop in the backyard and lay eggs. Three chickens, three eggs, every single day. In the U.S., we have a peculiar relationship with our eggs. We keep them in refrigerators and all of the eggs in a carton — whether it’s six or 36 — have the same expiration date. The eggs from my chickens don’t have to be refrigerated and don’t all expire on the same day, because each day those three new eggs arrive. I like order, but keeping eggs in order of acquisition can be a problem. Leaving them in a bowl doesn’t help and traditional egg…

    These days we hear a lot about using organic products, biodegradable products, recycling plastics, etc., to minimize carbon footprint and save the environment. But we do not realize that unless and until we minimize consumption, we can not really save our environment. For example, look at the world consumption; Today’s products are manufactured, used and disposed of at a higher rate than the earth can accommodate in a less harmful way. Therefore it is important that we move to green alternatives now, otherwise, will be covered by pollutants and toxins produced in the normal course of…
  • Most Efficient Solar Panels

    22 Jun 2015 | 5:30 am
    In trying to create the most efficient solar panels, pay special attention to the portion of the backsheet of the panels. A backsheet layer is the solar panel which solar cells are arranged. The other side of this backsheet, more precisely in the upper middle area is the junction box. A backsheet are often made of vinyl fluoride or PVF which is similar to PVC, or polyvinyl chloride, the material used in pipes and water pipes. P.V.F. It is commonly used in aircraft interiors and vehicles. DuPont, the US chemical company founded in 1802, created in the 1940s, polyvinyl fluoride polymer (PVF).

    21 Jun 2015 | 4:05 am
    This is a common question from the uninitiated. A photovoltaic (or PV System) is an installation of solar panels that can be used to provide electricity and if you generate more energy than it needs, can be fed back to the network. Domestic photovoltaic systems have two main options installations. Existing properties tend to opt for a mounting system “roof”, where the panels are sitting slightly above the roof surface. This causes the least disruption of the structure and the tiling of existing coverage. The alternative is a system of “roof” where the panels replace…

The $399 cube-shaped camera reminds me a lot of the Polaroid Cube, another tiny cubed action camera. The two cameras may share a similar size and shape, but that's where the similarities stop. The Session is superior in every possible way: It has the high-quality HD video recording you expect from a GoPro and a new dual-microphone system for the best sound out of any GoPro. The Session's sealed design also means it's waterproof up to 33 feet without needing a…

  • UK Publishers Don't See Why Anyone's Complaining About Copyright Law

    Mike Masnick
    6 Jul 2015 | 10:35 am
    As the copyright reform effort is underway in Europe, a number of legacy players are running a bit scared. The UK Publishers Association published a rather amusing attempt at "mythbusting" claims that reformers are making about copyright. Nate Hoffelder over at The Digital Reader does a nice job showing how many of the Publishers Association's claims are complete bunk, and clearly influenced by what's in the publishers' best interests, rather than anyone else's -- but that's to be expected. They're there to represent a position -- and rather than take a long-term view, recognizing that what's…

  • Hollywood Resists Revealing Details Of Its Cozy Relationship With Mississippi AG Jim Hood, But Glimpses Come Out

    Mike Masnick
    6 Jul 2015 | 9:31 am
    The whole legal fight between Google and Mississippi Attorney General Jim Hood has been pretty nasty from the very beginning, but it's been getting even nastier as it drags on. Even in many high stakes lawsuits involving large companies and the government, the filings tend to remain somewhat bland and low key. But this particular fight seems personal to many of the parties involved (going beyond just Google and Jim Hood to the MPAA and the studios it represents). If you don't recall, for a few years now, Hood has been bizarrely blaming Google for the fact that people do bad stuff online,…

    Between the FBI and the NSA, arguments against encryption that locks bad guys out (and, consequently, the government) have filled the air over the past several months. "Going dark" is the repeated concern, as if encryption would leave the nation's intelligence and investigative agencies without any options to pursue terrorists/child pornographers. It's all FUD and it's all dangerous, because carving small holes in encryption CARVES HOLES IN ENCRYPTION. Never mind the intended uses of golden keys/backdoors. A hole is a hole.

A rather comprehensive anti-cyberbullying act passed its third reading in the Parliament by a significant margin (116-5) and is awaiting royal assent. The "Harmful Digital Communications Act" criminalizes plenty of speech, mainly through the use of broad wording. Principle 1 A digital communication should not disclose sensitive personal facts about an individual. Principle 2 A digital communication should not be threatening, intimidating, or menacing.

    Pre-race game face. The race is run along the beach in Ventura I ran my first 10k race this past weekend at the Fathers Day 5k/10k race in Ventura, CA on Sunday, June 14, 2015. Last year I ran the 5k and had a great day with a 5k PR. I entered this race pretty much at the last minute. The race was on my radar but I’ve been working on re-gearing my workouts and training and the miles have been rolling in an inconsistent way with very short miles on weekdays and only medium long runs on weekends. My approach for the race was to go in and hit a pace that was just past uncomfortable while…
  • XTERRA Malibu Creek 22k Trail Race 2015 Report

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

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

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

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

    Ready for more high-end HTC handheld confusion and probably still no chance to challenge Samsung or even LG flagships? Rumor has it no radically redesigned One M9 sequel is in the pipeline by the year’s end, with the M9+ instead headed for Europe before September and a mystery “intermediate” Aero “tipped for release by Sprint, among… Continue reading One-branded HTC ‘Aero’ tipped for early November ‘intermediate’ launch Related posts: HTC says to expect new ‘hero product’ in October, redesigned 2016 flagship HTC One M9+ reportedly headed for EU in…

    Apparently not one to “hop on the me too bandwagon” with immature, gimmicky technologies, OnePlus waited for mobile fingerprint recognition to evolve and fully bloom before it could be fitted on the “impressive, thoughtful and versatile” 2. That’s right, ladies and gents, the OnePlus 2 hype train is chugging along, with stops at mouth-watering stations like stable Snapdragon 810,… Continue reading Forget Touch ID, the OnePlus 2 fingerprint sensor is purportedly ‘done right’ Related posts: OnePlus One sequel pushed back to Q3, numeric branding predicted OnePlus targets…
  • What Helsinki Can Teach America about the Internet

    30 Jun 2015 | 2:22 pm
    In 1998, famed and revered economist Paul Krugman penned the following words: “By 2005 or so, it will become clear that the Internet’s impact on the economy has been no greater than the fax machine’s.” As a standalone quote, it’s somewhat out of context; Krugman was asked to write a piece from the perspective of someone writing in 2098. Still, Krugman predicted that folks in the future might not think too much—if anything—of the Internet. Most people would probably agree he was completely wrong on this particular account. Fast-forward to 2015, and it’s quite apparent that the…

  • Rick Perry and the Texas vs. California Tech War

    6 Jul 2015 | 10:51 am
    A couple of weeks ago, I was waiting to do a CNBC slot on the Apple Watch in Asia -- the entire smartwatch class is having a lot of issues -- and I ran into Rick Perry, former governor of Texas, as he was coming out of the studio I was about to enter. For some reason, I thought he was going to be a typical entitled stuck-up jerk, like a lot of folks in his position are, but he wasn't. We started chatting about technology and jobs, and how he'd been focused as governor on getting tech companies to move to Texas from California.
  • Microsoft Anchors Minecraft Strategy to Education

    5 Jul 2015 | 5:00 am
    Microsoft wants to find ways to assist the pioneering teachers who have taught pupils through the sandbox construction game Minecraft. The company earlier this week launched its Minecraft in Education initiative to turn the pioneers into pillars. There was puzzlement over Microsoft's end game last September, when it purchased Mojang, the studio behind the multiplatform hit, in a $2.5 billion bet. Many thought Minecraft was at or near its peak. It turns out Microsoft has some novel plans for the game.
  • The Tour de France's Tech Transformation

    The 102nd running of the longest sporting event in the world, the Tour de France, begins Saturday. The race first took place in 1903, and it has continued every year since, except during WWI and WWII. In the 112 years since that first race, the technology utilized by the riders has changed dramatically. Today, the racers ride bikes with frames made of advanced carbon fiber. They have a total of 22 gears to help climb mountains and sprint to the finish line, and they can communicate with their team managers over race radios.

    The United States Federal Bureau of Investigation for the past year has been on the hunt for people slashing fiber-optic cables throughout the San Francisco Bay Area. The FBI called for the public's assistance in June, after 10 attacks had taken place. The 11th occurred on Tuesday, when someone severed cables used by Wave Broadband. Tuesday's attack knocked out service to customers in Alameda County, Sacramento and the San Francisco area, said FBI special agent Greg Wuthrich.

    Information stored on an Android smartphone or tablet is vulnerable to almost 4,900 new malware files each day, according to a new G Data SecurityLabs report. Cybercriminals' interest in the Android operating system has grown, the firm's Q1 2015 Mobile Malware Report revealed. "The report suggests that Android devices are becoming a bigger target for the bad guys and more profitable than in previous years," said Andy Hayter, security evangelist for G Data. The number of new malware samples in the first quarter increased 6.4 percent.

    15 Jun 2015 | 5:05 am
    Like many of you, I was shocked last week to hear that Stephen “Jamie” Toulouse (@Stepto) had fallen into a deep coma. Family members took to social media to say that his prognosis wasn’t looking good; that he wasn’t expected to survive. But thanks to excellent medical care, prayer and what is surely a strong will to live, Stepto — director of hacker success at HackerOne — seems to have made it through the storm. Saturday, his family posted an update saying he was awake and breathing without help from a tube. “Although he is very weak, he has been…

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

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

    Bill Brenner
    21 Apr 2015 | 6:24 am
    At RSA Conference 2015 here in San Francisco, there’s a lot of discussion about weaknesses to the electrical and wifi systems aboard airplanes. The discussion often turns to the case of hacker Chris Roberts (@Sidragon1 on Twitter). There’s been a lot of strong reaction to news of Roberts being pulled from a plane for jokingly tweeting that he might mess around with the plane’s electronic systems. There’s a lot of overreaction to this story. The TSA and feds certainly overreacted. But those who hold Roberts up as a victim of government oppression are overreacting, too.

    Well we probably didn’t need a survey to tell us. But anyway there was one and, of course, it showed us we are a selfie obsessed nation. According to the research, commissioned by Carphone Warehouse,  14.5 million selfies are now taken every day in the UK, with 4.3 million being shared via social media. One in four (24%) of those shots is captured at work and a third are digitally enhanced in a bid for , er, ‘self  improvement (seems it’s not just celebs and magazines who indulge in a bit of Photoshop). Most popular place for a selfie is not surprisingly holiday, but number…

    It doesn’t seem you can go a day without some new wearable asking for money on crowdfunding websites like Kickstarter or Indiegogo. But here’s one that promises to be more useful than most – in fact so useful it might actually save your life one day. Called Kingii, it’s a device that claims to help prevent drowning. Although the number of deaths from drowning in the UK is falling (just under 400 last year according to the latest stats from Rospa), worldwide drowning still kills 372,000 according to the World Health Organisation.

    When looking at the overall landscape of smartphones in the US, most casual conversation is dominated by talk of Apple’s iPhone and Samsung’s Galaxy S—currently that means the iPhone 6 and the Galaxy S6. The thing is, though, that there are other great phones out there that deserve to be a part of the conversation.

    When Jurassic Park was originally released back when I was a kid, I thought it was one of the best movies I had ever seen (in fact, it probably was, given my young age!) Seeing dinosaurs look so realistic was something you had to see, and the only way to truly experience the scope of the movie and the details in the CGI was to see it in a movie theater. Now, here we are some 22 years later, and fourth movie in the series, Jurassic World, is set to be released in a week-and-a-half.

Edward Wong and Chris Buckley write for the Times: China’s Communist Party has ample experience extinguishing unrest. For years it has used a deft mix of censorship, arrests, armed force and, increasingly, money, to repress or soften calls for political change. But as he faces massive street demonstrations in Hong Kong pressing for more democracy in the territory, the toolbox of President Xi Jinping of China…

    A couple of months ago DispalyMate's Raymond Soneira posted a technical review of Apple's Watch Flexible OLED display. The display was found out to be excellent, and Raymond said that "there is absolutely no question that for smart watches, OLED is the only way to go for a great display".The Watch in DisplayMate's edition used a Sapphire cover, while the cheaper Watch editions use strengthened glass (same one used in the iPhones and iPads). DisplayMate said that sapphire's advantage is that it's virtually scratch-proof, but it also reflects about twice as much ambient light as glass. In a new…

  • STT-MRAM MTJ cells can be used to mimick the human brain's synapses

    24 Apr 2015 | 11:17 pm
    Researchers from France's Universite Paris-Sud and the CEA institute say that the probabilistic nature of STT-MRAM devices can be used to create synapses-like neuro system. This can be used to create efficient devices that mimic the human's brain method of operation.MRAM cells (or MTJs) store data using electrons magnetic spin. The technology uses stochastic switching, and so to be sure that a bit is set, you have to applying a current in the MTJ for a long enough time (to increase the probability of the spin changes). In these new experiments, the researchers take advantage of the stochastic…

    At 19-years-old, most teenagers are experiencing the freedoms and stresses often associated with the first year of university: living with a stranger from another part of the world, fretting about one’s chosen field of study, and trying (and likely failing) to remain lucid in an 8 AM lecture after a night of drinking. For Vincent Touboul Flachaire, however, this last year before becoming a duogenarian is focused on building a platform that allows anyone to make a charitable donation without having to, well, donate any money.

    6 Jul 2015 | 7:00 am
    No one goes into to the florist industry for the money. Florists are passionate about what they do. They should be seen as craftspeople and their work should be taken seriously. The big companies  in the industry (think FTD, Teleflora, 1800Flowers) that dole out work to local florists are not only stifling their creativity, but killing their businesses. BloomNation is a flower marketplace that lets local florists showcase and sell their unique designs. Think of it as Etsy for flowers. I chatted recently with BloomNation co-founder Farbod Shoraka.

As our society moves towards an apex of entrepreneurial spirit, it is by no means surprising – indeed, really, apropos – that our everyday vernacular has transfomred alongside the development of the digital world and the accompanying startup ecosystem. Hence, we’ve reached a convergence at which “bae” meets “brogrammer”;…

  • Tim Hortons Falls Short with Ehmoji Canadian Keyboard App

    6 Jul 2015 | 11:21 am
    Tim Hortons, emojis, and Canadian stereotypes? It sounds like a winning combination for a fun, goofy app. Alas, the nation's venerable coffee chain kind of blew it. Between a lack of variety and the fact that the "emojis" are in fact just images being added to one's clipboard via copy and paste, Tim Hortons' latest digital project has been a flop. After hundreds of ratings, the average review is an abysmal two stars out of five. But is that really a shock when an "emoji keyboard" is neither a keyboard nor has emojis? Tim Hortons has tremendous clout in Canada, of course. Even when they're not…

    Church leaders have the great privilege of seeing to the spiritual formation of disciples. This is core to the mission Jesus gave us. One of the aspects of spiritual formation is service. For service, the many members of the Body have diverse gifts and function. Thus the responsibility of pastors and church leaders is connecting need to people’s gifts and vice versa. It is creating space and opportunities for people to discover and exercise their gifts. When leaders fail to create such an environment they stunt the growth of those they lead.

Slow reading means reading for at least half an hour without being distracted or interrupted by anything else—especially smartphones. Not only will it completely relax you and bring down your stress levels, it will also positively affect your reading comprehension. A study found that a multimedia presentation mixing words, sounds and moving pictures resulted in lower comprehension than reading plain text did. As many of us can affirm, online reading has impacted our reading habits. We’ve become skimmers, fast trackers,…

  • Trust and Transparency: Building Blocks for the Digital Single Market

    Jan Neutze
    3 Jun 2015 | 7:36 am
    What is trust? As defined in the dictionary, it consists of a firm and assured belief in the character, ability, strength, or truth of someone or something.

Even more so in today’s increasingly inter-connected world.

    There’s no doubt that we live in a massively irradiated world. We swim in a sea of WiFi, mobile phone, broadcast TV, microwave and other electromagnetic stuff every single day, and it’s getting worse not better. Which could be rather worrying if some studies are to be believed. “Semen exposed to RF electromagnetic waves emitted from cell phones had higher levels of damaging free radicals, lower sperm motility (the ability of sperm to move and [...] 214 words | permalink | No comments | digg this

  • iPhone 7 rumor rollup: Nixing those homely antenna lines; flexible displays on the way?

    28 Jun 2015 | 2:14 pm
    I thought I very well might need a new iPhone after spending this past week in Delaware at the crazy Firefly music festival during which we had to be evacuated one night because of a tornado warning. But everything turned out well, my iPhone 5 is intact, and now I can take my time awaiting iPhone 6S and iPhone 7 rumors to morph into reality. No more ugly antenna lines on the iPhone? Speculation swirled over the past week about Apple possibly ditching those homely plastic lines across the back of your iPhone…that you probably never noticed in the first place. But the plastic is practical:…

    One thing that's cool about my job as a tech business publication editor is getting to meet industry pioneers, as I did by phone this past week with Mohit Aron, widely considered to be the Father of Hyperconvergence as a co-founder of Nutanix and now the founder and CEO of startup Cohesity (you can read my Q&A with Aron here).

    Humor alert! Humor alert! Yes, as it relates to Apple.And I’m not talking about the standard eye-rolling stuff of corporate dog-and-pony shows such as last week’s Apple Worldwide Developers’ Conference (WWDC) in San Francisco. Nope, here we have Apple enlisting the aid of former SNL comic Bill Hader, who shares a humorous behind-the-scenes peek at what could have been at WWDC… Alas, there were no iPhone 6S or iPhone 7 rumors in there, just a goat and some larger-than-life fingers. But the actual WWDC’s introduction of iOS 9 did spark speculation about the next flagship iPhones.To…
  • I knew it: Commissioner Gordon and EMC Chief Joe Tucci are twins after all!

    11 Jun 2015 | 2:01 pm
    I've suspected for years that EMC chief Joe Tucci and Neil Hamilton, who played Commissioner Gordon in the 1960s Batman TV series, were one in the same. And now, thanks to a Microsoft brainiac's website, I've been sort of vindicated.Apparently, there's a 78% chance that the two are related.The site, TwinsOrNot, uses Microsoft's newish Face Recognition API, which was introduced at Build 2015. TwinsOrNot is the machine learning-enabled creation of Microsoft employee Mat Velloso, who reportedly built it in 4 hours.To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here

  • UK Publishers Don't See Why Anyone's Complaining About Copyright Law

    Mike Masnick
    6 Jul 2015 | 10:35 am
    As the copyright reform effort is underway in Europe, a number of legacy players are running a bit scared. The UK Publishers Association published a rather amusing attempt at "mythbusting" claims that reformers are making about copyright. Nate Hoffelder over at The Digital Reader does a nice job showing how many of the Publishers Association's claims are complete bunk, and clearly influenced by what's in the publishers' best interests, rather than anyone else's -- but that's to be expected. They're there to represent a position -- and rather than take a long-term view, recognizing that what's…

  • Hollywood Resists Revealing Details Of Its Cozy Relationship With Mississippi AG Jim Hood, But Glimpses Come Out

    The whole legal fight between Google and Mississippi Attorney General Jim Hood has been pretty nasty from the very beginning, but it's been getting even nastier as it drags on. Even in many high stakes lawsuits involving large companies and the government, the filings tend to remain somewhat bland and low key. But this particular fight seems personal to many of the parties involved (going beyond just Google and Jim Hood to the MPAA and the studios it represents). If you don't recall, for a few years now, Hood has been bizarrely blaming Google for the fact that people do bad stuff online,…

    Between the FBI and the NSA, arguments against encryption that locks bad guys out (and, consequently, the government) have filled the air over the past several months. "Going dark" is the repeated concern, as if encryption would leave the nation's intelligence and investigative agencies without any options to pursue terrorists/child pornographers. It's all FUD and it's all dangerous, because carving small holes in encryption CARVES HOLES IN ENCRYPTION. Never mind the intended uses of golden keys/backdoors. A hole is a hole.

    New Zealand is the latest country to "do something" about online trolling. A rather comprehensive anti-cyberbullying act passed its third reading in the Parliament by a significant margin (116-5) and is awaiting royal assent. The "Harmful Digital Communications Act" criminalizes plenty of speech, mainly through the use of broad wording. Principle 1 A digital communication should not disclose sensitive personal facts about an individual. Principle 2 A digital communication should not be threatening, intimidating, or menacing.

    Microsoft is planning to finalize Windows 10 this week, ahead of its official launch later this month. Sources familiar with Microsoft’s plans tell The Verge that the company is currently working on final copies of Windows 10, with a release to manufacturing (RTM) build expected later this week. RTM candidate builds have already been spotted online. Once the RTM build is ready, Microsoft will send the final copy of Windows 10 to its PC partners ahead of a release to the public on July 29th.

  • Yotaphone says bye-bye to Android, switches to Sailfish

    4 Jul 2015 | 6:04 am
    Update: there's a denial, which in turn is also being questioned. Conclusion: nope, not happening. Russian manufacturer Yota, well known for its Yotaphone dual screen phones, has announced that its next devices will no longer operate using Android but Sailfish, an alternative developed by former Nokia engineers at Jolla. Interesting, if not a bit of an odd decision. One has to wonder what prompted this decision, because even though I like Sailfish for what it represents, it's far from a true alternative to Android or iOS. Maybe Yota knows something about Sailfish 2.0 we don't? I'm intrigued.

    3 Jul 2015 | 11:56 am
    Recently there has a been a lot of debate wether Safari is the new IE, or Apple simply is building a user-centric web, but I think that removes focus from the real problem. The problem isn't Safari. It's a somewhat modern browser that in the eyes of some might lack some important features, but overall is still pretty good and modern. The real problem is Apple's lack of browser-choice in iOS, and that's a problem for several reasons. When Apple allows other browsers (not just wrappers!), email clients, mapping services, etc. to be set as default by iOS users, we're going to see a whole bunch…

It is supposedly based on a device that was originally announced at Mobile World Congress back in March, and back then the best image we had to go off of was a low-resolution snapshot of the device being held up on stage. Now, Evan Blass (aka @evleaks) has posted a high-resolution render of the device, codenamed Venice, to Twitter. If this is for real, and BlackBerry doesn't mess it up by tying it to carriers and…

    Chris Doran, Senior Product Marketing Manager, Progress Easyl Chris Doran demonstrates powerful data blending to Tableau analytics with Progress Easyl. For marketing analysts and business intelligence (BI) professionals, there is a real struggle to access data.

What appears to be a simple task often ends up being a grueling process of tracking down, combining and shaping row after row of data before you can even begin working in Tableau or another BI or analytics…

  • Social Media Purism Stupidity is what Gets You Fired

    Tamar Weinberg
    8 Jun 2015 | 6:00 am
    Ten years ago, social media marketing did not exist. There were online communities. People participated on those communities. It became possible, all of the sudden, for marketers to participate within those communities because they saw an opportunity. And so, all of the sudden, this pure network of sorts became a place for marketers, as they always do, to capitalize upon. In the beginning, a core group of social media marketers were making waves on sites that have since shut down, creating the foundation for social media marketing as we see it today. This very small group of social media…

    What is the value of social media as it relates to retail ROI? Is there a point in putting sharing buttons on my e-commerce website if I don’t know how that translates to actionable data regarding revenue? Everyone is doing things with respect to social, but in e-commerce, what is the point? Can I even truly attribute social data to return on investment? These are good and absolutely fair questions.

    In his article for HubSpot, “Confessions of a Google Spammer,” former black hat SEO writer Jeff Deutsch explained why going the “black hat” SEO route is a very bad idea, and why producing quality content and using an inbound marketing approach is the way to go instead. What does “black hat SEO” mean? It essentially means using unethical methods to boost your ratings on search engines. Black hat SEO is writing exclusively for the search engines rather than trying to provide good content for your clients or your clients’ customers or potential customers. It is not only frowned…

    If your computer takes a while to boot up, access files and open programs you may need to defragment your hard drive.  Defragmenting your hard disk enables your computer to access and open files faster. Although this technology is not new, not all computer users defragment their hard drives. In most cases, computer users won’t defragment because it takes too much time or they don’t know how to do it. What is Defragmenting?

    We have been lucky and were able to use solid state drives for a few years now. This ensured lightning fast performance even in daily usage circumstances.

But with the advent of much faster, larger and better solid state drives, this is all turned in a completely new direction. A few years back, you had to bend over backwards to afford more than 1TB of Solid State Drive capacity in terms of finances. With the release of these…

    Instagram and Facebook have become the staple places for everyone to share images today.

While both Facebook and Instagram are really good and easy ways to share image and more, the problem with the entire piece is the fact that both the services really shrink the quality of the images.

It is too embarrassing then to go and ask the person where did you pick the dress from and worst is asking the cost of the same. This is where Flipkart’s update to its mobile app would prove to be a life saver, at least to the girls who always have an eye for the next awesome dress. Taking cue from the Amazon Firephone, whereby you can scan objects with the camera and search for it on the Amazon site, Flipkart has brought in a feature where you will be able to click the…

    If 2013/14 was the year of Touch ID, 2015 has been all about Force Touch. As wrong as that name sounds, Force Touch is all about pressure sensitivity and we have seen it in the new MacBook Airs as well as the Apple Watch. Force Touch provides another way of differential input for the device. It is now being reported that not just the MacBooks and Apple Watches, the next iteration of iPhones would also bring Force Touch which would allow for an extra layer of inputs on the touch screen. The mass production of the device is set to begin sometime next month though the testing has already begun.

    Back in the year of 2007 when Drew Houston, CEO of Dropbox, had become frustrated of misplacing his USB storage drive the very idea of using cloud technology for personal data storage was unfathomable. However today, every new data storage company seems to be offering cheap or free cloud storage solutions.

  • 4 Criteria to Evaluate DDoS Mitigation Providers [Infographic]

    26 Jun 2015 | 3:02 am
    How fast could your internal IT department stop a potential DDoS (Distributed Denial of Service) attack? On average, a DDoS attack isn’t detected by IT teams until 4.5 hours after it has commenced and usually it takes another 4.9 hours before mitigation can begin. With IT services outage costs averaging as high as $100,000 per hour, it essentially means that a DDoS attack can cost an Internet-dependent company about $1 million before the company even begins to mitigate the attack. The growing increase in DDoS attacks has increased the demand for cyber security and DDoS mitigation…

While there were several differences separating Apple OS X from Microsoft Windows, TRIM support also happened to be one of them, until today. Previously, Apple has only provided support for TRIM in SSDs that were already present in its MacBook lineup of products, but the tech giant has finally branched out the support to aftermarket SSDs, just in case consumers wanted to get more speed out of their machine.

After the recent Internet Retailer Conference and Exhibition, we have had even more companies asking for our advice on which platform to use and why.

    Background From late 1990s until about 2011, before I did a lot of web development and programming, I worked on projects that usually required the functionality offered in the Adobe Creative Suite. Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, and at times InDesign were my tools of choice, simply because that is what I was taught to use in school. Then, in 2011, my laptop’s hard drive failed and numerous attempts to reinstall Windows 7 failed due to it thinking that I was stealing the OS. A friend suggested that I install a GNU/Linux and try free and open-source tools. Shortly after, I was presented…

There are several programs that can be used to accomplish this goal, one of which is git. This document will discuss the way that we here at NuRelm use git for not only version control and collaboration, but also for site database backups. When using git in this manner, it is recommended to either control your own remote git server or to use the private setting for a hosted git server. This would…

There’s a world between a vacation broiling on the beach and soaking in the attractions, and one which involves a hearty dose of adrenaline, adventure, unpredictability, serendipity, and exploration. Perhaps even a snippet of danger. For most of us, the adventurous side of the tourism industry is fraught with expensive trips, unobtainable insurance, and obnoxious gap-year backpackers hellbent on finding their true life-purpose at the bottom of a bungee jump…

    They are not going to come to life, they can not, you keep telling yourself - but they will, and this will be no Toy Story affair… there can not be an answer for every stare that peers into your soul tonight-    ”Just open a Toy Store, that might     bring out the best in you!” So they said, your friends, (who could never know the dread-eyed demands  made by these devils reincarnated in stuffed, plasticised glory) who will find you some day, a scatterbox of emotions after a business meeting with toys alone – about who will sell and who will be left weeping - and doubtless they…
  • Eyed (NaPoWriMo Day 4 Poem 4)

    4 Apr 2014 | 9:20 pm
    Monitors stare, phones glaze over, the technology used to watch reversing itself, twisting – almost alive – in your direction, and you feel a sort of chill, thrill, spine-shocking sensation rattle through your fingertips. The eyes and ‘i’s inside the CRTs, MP3s, LCDs and our TVs switch places with yourself now, ensuring that you are on the other side of the display. Quick… wait for your User to weigh their attention back to you – but – but no use, they have turned away to cheat on you with the laptop, and spy on their other technofiles with their Zeus of a device they call a…

  • Office 365: To Cloud or Not to Cloud—That IS the Question!

    Steve Brasen
    21 Jun 2015 | 8:01 pm
    It’s time to take a serious look at Office 365. The cloud edition of Microsoft’s broadly adopted business productivity suite – which bundles such popular packages as Microsoft Word, Microsoft Excel, Microsoft PowerPoint, and Microsoft Outlook – has been both heavily praised and heavily criticized since its introduction in 2011. While the adoption rate of the traditional software edition of Microsoft Office is currently in no danger of being overtaken by its cloud-hosted cousin, recent adoption rates for Office 365 have substantially accelerated. Businesses, in particular, have shown…
  • Cisco’s Big Data Analytics Vision: Some Data Will Be Distributed Forever

    Shamus McGillicuddy
    12 Jun 2015 | 11:26 am
    Champions of big data analytics extoll the virtues of massive data stores. Enterprises have so much unstructured data that could help them improve operations and generate new revenue, they say. The more bytes, the better. Some might assume that enterprises will simply push every byte they can find into a Hadoop cluster or data warehouse. [...]
  • Is Your Organization Ready for Windows 10?

    Steve Brasen
    5 Jun 2015 | 9:18 am
    Here we go again. New releases of Microsoft’s flagship operating system are typically greeted with a combination of angst, curiosity, confusion, and dread in equal measure. It seems just as folks have gotten used to a particular Microsoft version, a new one is released with a completely different interface and requiring a whole new set of operational practices. Even worse, upgrading large numbers of desktops to the new edition in a large enterprise environment is a daunting task often avoided by IT operations teams until and unless it is absolutely necessary to perform a mass migration.

    Both the “rules” and the “roles” governing IT service management (ITSM) are evolving to support a far-broader need for inclusiveness across IT, and between IT and its service consumers. Recent EMA research, “What Is the Future of IT Service Management?” (March 2015), exposed a number of shifting trends that might surprise many in the industry. [...]

Members hail from companies such as Bank of America, JPMorgan Chase and Fidelity Investments. ONUG’s goal is to specify requirements and reference architectures for products that are open, more affordable and more agile than what vendors traditionally offer. Over its first two years of existence, ONUG has focused on software-defined WAN (SDWAN), network virtualization overlays and network service virtualization (also known as network…

    So, you are a tester? You play games all day long then!Well, not really. Since I started working as a software tester I’ve been hearing this opinion again and again. Most people are convinced testers do nothing else but test computer games, which for them means they play all day long at work. They couldn’t be more wrong!Testers work not only for game dev companies. They work in IT departments of companies operating in various sectors. They can also be found in software solution houses, like Goyello. And even if they work for game dev companies, you may be surprised to hear their work is…
  • Angular 2 Demystified

    23 Jun 2015 | 4:42 am
    As I mentioned in my recent blog post Angular 2 is a complete rewrite. Many concepts that are known from Angular 1.x are gone or changed dramatically. Angular 2 looks like a completely different framework: no controllers*, no DDO, no $scope, no angular.module and completely rewritten binding and change detection (no ng-model).Although Angular 2 is still work in progress many new features have already been revealed. In this blog post I will share some basic concepts of the framework via code samples that I presented during my lecture at InfoShare 2015.Please note the code is created with the…

  • Check what 5 features you need to excel at teamwork

    9 Jun 2015 | 2:22 am
    Almost every job advertisement has “teamwork” in the list of requirements. In almost every CV you can spot “teamwork” as one of its owner’s key skills. Is teamwork becoming new literacy? I guess so. But what actually makes you a good team player? I have many years of experience working as a member of Agile teams. I have learnt a lot about what being a team player actually means.  In this post I have listed the features that I think are essential if you want not only to claim you are a team player, but more importantly, become a successful member of a team.  What is…

    5 Jul 2015 | 10:59 am
    Well, first of all, let me say I enjoyed Roosh. I was pleasantly surprised. Now, in order to understand why that is a seriously powerful endorsement, you need to know that in general my opinion of PUAs is somewhere below contempt. I have written on this before, and I will now go on a little detour to explain what I think is wrong with PUAs in general. If you don’t care, feel free to skip to the next bolded heading further down.   It’s not that they try to get laid with lots of women, that’s just called being male. It’s the lies. The hypocrisy.

      You may know about the Evil Legion of Evil and it’s admirable assault on the forces of Political Correctness. You may in fact, even be a Vile Faceless Minion. You may even be Proud about it. And yet; there remains an unfulfilled level of pride. And as the Evil Empire of Evildoers well know, Arrogant pride in our Evilness is basically a requirement. Many Vile Faceless Minions are required. Indeed we must accept that their bodies are useful for the making of steps with which we, more arrogant, more specifically and intentionally Evil, Evildoers climb over the bastions of Social…
  • CHILD 44 – A Brief Review (No Spoilers)

    27 Apr 2015 | 2:20 pm
    This has made it onto the top 10 films I have ever seen. When searching for the image above, I also came across the fact that the average review for it is very poor, between one and three stars, which initially (and stupidly) shocked me. This film is truly amazing and or a variety of reasons, but primary amongst them is that it is a very real portrayal of what happens when Political Correctness becomes the ideology of the day. And yes, I really do mean that, and yes, the emphasis on Political Correctness is indeed on Political. But do not be fooled. What you think is harmless garden variety…

  • Jetpack Gives a Boost to Mobile and Rich Media Advertising

    Desdemona Bandini
    25 Jun 2015 | 4:54 pm
    Advertising technology is hot with the rise of mobile, evidenced in part by Verizon’s merger with AOL valued at $4.4 billion, and on a much smaller scale, Undertone’s recent acquisition of mobile ad provider Sparkflow. Until recently, three legacy providers (Sizmek, PointRoll and Google’s DoubleClick) have dominated the rich media market. But that’s changing with a new crop of rich media platforms disrupting the ecosystem with new mobile and non-standard rich media ad formats, one of which – Jetpack – is located right here in Santa Monica.

    This article was co-written by Laura Kurtin and Amy Dodge. Those of us who have studied marketing in school and have worked in the industry tend to be a bit cynical about some of the gimmicks and ploys companies use to encourage us to buy their products and services. However, when we see our favorite product sitting on the store shelf in a fun new package (right next to the package we’ve always bought), and it costs a little more than we’re used to paying, we’re still pretty likely to put that in our cart – and we’re savvy enough to know that the product inside is exactly same as…

  • I Bought an Apple Watch and Returned it

    13 Jun 2015 | 4:34 pm
    I was one of those people who pre-ordered the apple watch at 12 am on April 10 and still got the shipping estimate of June. I had bought the Space black stainless steel with link bracelet. It cost a whooping $1195 with taxes here in California and I was praying that it better be god damn good to justify that price. Sadly, it wasn’t. When I got it on June 2nd, after the usual adrenaline rush of unboxing an apple product subsided, and after using it for about a week, I came to the conclusion that this is a product that Steve Jobs would never have let to be launched in its current state.

  • Wait, Where Did Google Webmaster Tools Go?

    Andre Sólo
    6 Jul 2015 | 8:19 am
    If you sign into your Google Webmaster Tools account this week, you may be a bit surprised: that familiar logo is gone. Instead, you’ll see a new name, Google Search Console, staring at you from the top of the screen. So what is Search Console, and is it different from Webmaster Tools? Google assures us that the change is just a rebranding. If you log in and check it out, you’ll find all the same tools you had before, including your crucial SEO metrics. Only the name and logo are different. The reason for the change is that “Webmaster” tools sounded too narrow.
  • Now You Can See How You Rank for Every Keyword In One Glance

    Andre Sólo
    2 Jul 2015 | 1:51 am
    In terms of SEO, the most powerful and basic step a company can take is to begin monitoring your rankings for your main keywords. Everything else—content creation, link building, and social—is likely driven by how well you rank and how far you are from the coveted number one position. Thus, if you have anything less than a crystal clear idea of where you’re at, your entire SEO strategy will suffer. The problem is, checking your ranking is not easy. Doing it the old fashioned way—simply googling your keywords—quickly becomes time consuming. A number of SEO…

    What’s the number one online marketing mistake that businesses make? If you said no SEO, poor web design or bad sales copy, you’re wrong. These are things businesses know are important and put resources into getting right. By my count, a much more common mistake is either not showing your hours online, or getting them wrong. That’s especially true when your business has special summer hours. Lots of businesses have these, from restaurants with longer evening hours to small offices that close early on Fridays. The problem is that when your hours change, it’s…
  • Can Google’s Anti-Piracy Algorithm Be Used Against Your Business?

    Andre Sólo

    Google has been taking more anti-piracy measures, sometimes more than the copyright holders themselves These measures include spotlighting legitimate movie, TV show and music outlets, and pushing piracy outlets father down the listings. In essence, Google is making pirated media sites so hard to find that they may as well not be online. But how do they do that? The answer is, of course, an algorithm—in this case, a special update to their search algorithm appropriately nicknamed Pirate. This algorithm has been around since as far back as 2012, but received a major update in…

    Americans are spending more than twice as much time using smartphone apps as they did just three years ago. But we're spending most of that extra time in a small number of familiar apps, rather than spreading it among a bunch of new ones. According to research from Nielsen via Statista, American iPhone and Android phone users spent an average of 37 hours and 28 minutes using smartphone apps in the fourth quarter of 2014, more than double the figure of 18 hours and 18 minutes from the last quarter of 2011.

The new HP Enterprise company won't be able to sell itself for two years. This restriction is part of the tax-free status that the separation will get. Specifically, the report says that HPE will be "prohibited under the tax matters agreement" from "entering into any transaction pursuant to which all or a portion of the shares of Hewlett Packard Enterprise common stock would be acquired."

These ads are becoming an essential tool for apps seeking to stand out among the millions of mobile apps on the Google Play and the Apple app stores. On top of strong performance, including high clickthrough rates, marketers like app-install ads because their value can often be accurately quantified.

Also: the corruption and mishandling of state workers’ and private sector workers’ pension and health insurance funds. Those are the problems begging to be solved. There’s no problem either with non-registration of SIM cards. The real problem lies in the failure of authorities to use all tools at their disposal to dismantle, arrest, and prosecute syndicates.

    Entre todos los rumores que conocemos sobre el iPhone 6S hay uno realmente destaca: el iPhone de color rosa. Puede sonar loco, pero son varios los informes que respaldan la posibilidad de que Apple lance una versión del iPhone 6S de color rosado. y ahora sabemos como podría lucir, gracias a un usuario de Weibo. Más allá de su nuevo color, se espera que por fuera el iPhone 6S sea prácticamente idéntico al iPhone 6. Y si eso es cierto, estas nuevas imágenes son probablemente una buena representación de como será el nuevo dispositivo si Apple decide seguir adelante con esta tonalidad.

    Christian Cawley
    6 Jul 2015 | 11:00 am
    Is Nicholas Cage immortal? Could Keanu Reeves be a vampire? Does Hillary Clinton have a clone? Clearly, the answer to these questions is “No”, but they’re so intriguing that we’re duty bound to look at them in more detail. Where did these claims come from? And how have they managed to spread so far and wide around the Internet? A Duplicate is NOT a Lookalike Before proceeding, it is important to underline a key difference here. Although the people we’re talking about are undoubtedly nothing more than lookalikes, they’re not actual professional lookalikes.

    Learning a new skill online isn’t so hard. There is an abundance of resources to learn just about anything, including video production. The best part is that a lot of these online sites are free to use; the hard part is that many of of these sites are hard to find.

    Rob Nightingale
    6 Jul 2015 | 9:00 am
    A great mind once spoke, “Without adventure, travel is just tourism“. It’s hard to disagree with that sentiment. There’s a world between a vacation broiling on the beach and soaking in the attractions, and one which involves a hearty dose of adrenaline, adventure, unpredictability, serendipity, and exploration. Perhaps even a snippet of danger. For most of us, the adventurous side of the tourism industry is fraught with expensive trips, unobtainable insurance, and obnoxious gap-year backpackers hellbent on finding their true life-purpose at the bottom of a bungee jump…

While there are a few nice new features and refinements coming to OS X 11.10, you can get most of the upcoming features by installing third-party software today.

    Even with fast hardware and the newest operating system, logging into Windows can become painfully slow if there are a lot of programs that startup when Windows starts up.

    Do you have multiple PowerPoint presentations that you need to combine or merge into one presentation? I’ve had to do this myself a couple of times and one of the most important aspects when merging presentations is whether you want to maintain the format and theme of the inserted presentation or have it match the theme of the main presentation. The second most important factor is whether you need to maintain any animations and transitions that might be included in the inserted presentation. Depending on how you want the inserted slides to appear in the main presentation, you will need…

    Back in the days, defragging your PC was something everyone did on a regular basis, even if you had no clue what you were doing. What everyone did know was that it somehow made the computer run faster. I’ve written many articles in the past about defragmenting your hard drive, the boot sector, the paging file and even the registry. During the days of Windows XP, defragging was necessary and it made a significant difference in performance. Over time, many companies started selling third party defragging tools that supposedly did the job faster, better and more accurately. Some were…

    People are usually knowledgeable enough to know that they should backup the files on their laptop or desktop computer.

Whether you have a smartphone or tablet, backing it up is just as important. You might have valuable conversations, photos and files on there, and there’s always a risk of losing them. Your device could be stolen, it could break or the data could disappear or become corrupt. To make sure…

SpaceXThe spectacular failure of the SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket last week underscores a growing problem for NASA: its reliance on private companies and Russia in order to launch many of its crucial missions.

    Need a social network to connect with friends and likeminded individuals? Take your pick; there are dozens to choose from. Facebook remains by far the most popular and, as it is used by real people, it is filled with everything that makes up life -- the good and the bad. In response, a group of Evangelical Christians in Brazil set up Facegloria with the aim of becoming "morally and technically better than Facebook". Actually the real aim of the site is to promote Christianity -- to the extent that rather than a Like button, there is an Amen button. Think "godbook", if you will. Of course…

    6 Jul 2015 | 9:53 am
    Solid state drives are the bee's knees as far as I am concerned -- the best upgrade any PC user can make. Even as prices come down, however, there is still a big issue -- limited capacities. Understandably, a user might be hesitant to replace a 1 or 2TB hard drive with a much smaller SSD. Well, today this changes. Samsung -- a very reputable company -- launches the massive 2TB 850 PRO and EVO SSDs. While this is certainly reason for celebration (and drooling), the price tags may shock consumers.

    Brian Fagioli
    6 Jul 2015 | 9:01 am
    A company's reputation can make or break it. No matter how good the product, a poor perception of the brand can negatively impact it. Sony, for example, is still recovering from its numerous blunders, such as installing rootkits on Windows machines and having its PlayStation network hacked. The company was not particularly open about both situations at first, leading many people -- myself included -- to be hesitant to trust it. Samsung, however, seems to be the darling of the tech sector lately. Its smartphones and tablets are wildly popular, despite pundits constantly looking for it to fail.

  • Seahorse tails could inspire new generation of robots

    5 Jul 2015 | 11:45 pm
    Monday, July 5, 2015., According to a new study reported Thursday in the journal Science, researchers get inspired from a seahorse tail which led to the big breakthrough in robotics, defense systems and biomedicine. The study reported outlines the virtues of the seahorse’s unusual skeletal structure, including a tail in which a vertebral column is surrounded by square bony plates. These systems may soon help create technology that offers new approaches to surgery, search and rescue missions or industrial applications. Seahorse tails are organized into square prisms surrounded by bony…
  • MIT researchers reveal brainwave changes in patients receiving nitrous oxide

    5 Jul 2015 | 11:21 pm
    Nitrous oxide, commonly known as “laughing gas,” has been used in anesthesiology practice since the 1800s, but the way it works to create altered states is not well understood. In a study published this week in Clinical Neurophysiology, MIT researchers reveal some key brainwave changes among patients receiving the drug. For a period of about three minutes after the administration of nitrous oxide at anesthetic doses, electroencephalogram (EEG) recordings show large-amplitude slow-delta waves, a powerful pattern of electrical firing that sweeps across the front of the brain as slowly as…

  • Plants survive drought for decades came back to life in seconds when water was added

    3 Jul 2015 | 12:43 am
    Humans can’t survive more than a few days without water, but some plants, in particular mosses, can survive drought for decades and suddenly revive with the first rain. When there’s no rain, Tortula mosses dry out completely and stop photosynthesizing. That is, they stop using carbon dioxide and the light of the sun to grow. They’re virtually dead, reduced to a pile of chemicals, and can stay that way for years. Researchers have found dry, 100-year-old moss samples in a museum that came back to life when water was added. These mosses’ unique ability to survive months, or even years,…

    6 Jul 2015 | 3:30 am
      Quando ci ritroviamo fuori casa con il nostro cellulare una domanda è ovvia: come possiamo ricaricare il nostro Smartphone? Alcuni possono optare per un Power Bank, una batteria che possiamo portare dietro per ricaricare l’altra, ma se quest’opzione non ci piace dobbiamo per forza abbandonare ogni idea di far durare per sempre il nostro cellulare all’aperto? Siamo chiari: a volte anche i Power Banks possono essere insufficienti se stiamo per davvero molte ore fuori, per più motivi. Ma per fortuna esistono dispositivi capaci di generare elettricità che possiamo usare. Ecco…

    2 Jul 2015 | 4:15 pm
    How often you have to figure your taxes depends on where you are. In the United States, there are Quarterly Taxes and of course year end taxes.The way your business is setup will make the difference in which tax form you need to fill out and send in, as well as when you need to send them in.

I enjoyed writing my first published book and I evangelized Windows PowerShell DSC a lot in last one year. I started writing about containers. I have learned a quite a bit around IoT, Azure, AWS, and GCE. So, naturally, I am looking forward to more this coming year as I expand beyond PowerShell and DSC. Stay tuned!

I am not the first one to write about containers and this is certainly not an in-depth overview of container technologies. I will eventually get there and show you how you can deploy different container technologies. This series of articles is about my own thoughts and a documentation for my own reference.

    A few years ago I had a project manager from my team in Scotland send me a copy of Eliyahu Goldratt’s The Goal after learning I’d never read the 1984 classic. At the time, the constraint this team was struggling with was an ability to get software specifications defined that supported the product management requirements. After reading the book, I naturally tried to identify constraints in all my processes, putting them through the standard Theory of Constraints (TOC) steps: identify, determine how to exploit, subordinate all to the constraint, elevate, repeat. I learned quickly that TOC…

Since my youngest son’s interest in technology does not extend much beyond keeping up with the latest news in baseball and playing sports video games, I ordered him a $15 kit to see what would happen. I arrived home Tuesday to find virtual reality glasses attached to my son’s face. His mind was blown by the whole Cardboard experience, from the virtual worlds he explored to…

To my surprise I met business professionals who actually thought the public cloud was not going to have a big impact on their industry. I swiped my phone for a moment to confirm the date: yes, it was still 2015. I then did my best to understand the rationale, since it had been years since I’d heard this level of resistance. At its core were two primary explanations: 1) we could never trust a third party to provide our required availability, and 2) the public cloud is not sufficiently secure to…

So when I started my current company, I committed myself to investing in an intuitive user experience instead of traditional online documentation. Unfortunately as the product became more complex and we either failed to contain the complexity or had features that could not be reduced to a simple UI, I found myself looking for alternatives.

    Recently after being tasked with finding a value laptop as a Mothers Day present I proceeded on a journey, a hunt for the perfect computing device for mom. Being a light user; web, photos and a little Skype raw computing power wouldn’t be as important as user experience and value. Like walking a tightrope if you lean too far in either direction (value or performance) your balance will be lost and tumble down you go. But how low down the performance scale can you go before slow is too slow even for a light user? This was the question rattling around in the back of my brain as the…

Putting insects to shame the latest micro tugs, or Tuggers, are able to pull over 2000 times their own weight. Equivalent to a human dragging a Blue Whale down the beach. Weighing only 12 grams Tugger is lifting well above his own weight but that’s not all for this micro machine. Tugger can also drive forward, turn left or right and when he wants to get to work pulling on things he plants his foot down and winches away.

    For both new and established e-commerce merchants worldwide, customer experience and customer care have become key to survival. While online stores can beat out their brick and mortar competitors on price, gaining a competitive edge over other online merchants has become about excellence in customer experience. And nowhere is customer experience more important than in the call centre. Indeed, for online customers, the only real point of contact is the call centre.

  • Manifesting My Desires: Am I Worthy?

    Renee Schmidt
    6 Jul 2015 | 10:12 am
    I have been considering what it takes to manifest more of what I want into my life. This led me to question: am I worthy of what I want? And how does one determine self-worth or self-value anyway? The whole endeavor sounds like a big ego trip. It’s not. While connected, self-worth is not self-esteem. I liken self-esteem to confidence (my ability to perform, my giving energy). For example: I am confident that I am smart, capable, and hard working; therefore I have self-esteem in my work. Or I am confident in my wittiness and ability to articulate, so I have high self-esteem around how I…

But by and large, people will not. If you desire my substantiation, or thoughtful reasons why you may want to do the same, here are a couple of reasons why I’ve taken  my ~10 year old profile down. 1.

    The life of an entrepreneur is not a particularly easy one. Doors open one day and for weeks or months new ones can remain shut. When doors are shut and no amount of knocking will open them, there’s nothing to lean on but certainty. Sometimes that certainty stems from a distant reminder of when a door unexpectedly flung open in the past. Other times that certainty borders on mania, stemming from nothing more than an inexplicable knowing from within. People sometimes remark to me of their admiration of how far I’ve come as an entrepreneur (how far is actually debatable, but that’s a…

No longer will we look down at our wrist to simply be told that it is 10 past 2, now we can also use it to communicate with others through a tap, a sketch or even our heartbeat.

Each of them have their benefits and their downfalls, and that’s what we’re going to explore in this blog. Will desktop reign superior?

  • Know the Score: The Benefits of Gamification in Online Communities

    EE Staff
    5 Jul 2015 | 8:44 am
    Ever since gaming became its own subculture it has been fraught with controversy, taking the blame for everything from laziness in young adults to the horrors of the Columbine shooting. However, despite the standard media narrative that gaming is destructive, the fundamentals of gaming offers society more positives than negatives. At its core, gaming is about competition, whether against yourself or other players. You’re trying to get a better score, level up, have the most points for the round, or get the best loot from the raid. It’s no surprise then that there are 183 million active…

      Interop is one of the most important trade shows for IT professionals, and I was thrilled to be able to represent Experts Exchange in Vegas. Our booth may have been small, but the reception we received by you, the community, was definitely not. Many attendees approached us at the show, thanking us for the platform they use every day to make their jobs easier. As the Community Manager, I went to Interop with the intention of welcoming new members and experts into the fold, but I got so much more out of it.

    EE Staff
    28 Apr 2015 | 6:00 am
    There’s a lot of silliness out there – it must be the weather – that has caught my attention recently. The one that really jumped out was that the people who control Internet domain names, ICANN, stated that they need the US government to decide what to do with the company that owns the rights to the .sucks domain. “It’s not our problem,” ICANN says. Todd L’Herrou sent me this photo of one of his colleagues (not really, it’s the son of one of his colleagues) wearing the fabulous new child’s t-shirt from Experts Exchange. Also new is the…

    For those of you who participated in one of those tournament things, you’ll be amused to hear that the other half’s bracket blew up when Iowa State lost the second game of the first day. Perhaps he should have picked a different game and maybe used a different search engine. I don’t know what the weather is like in your part of the world, but we’ve been dealing with spring for about a month now. That always means lots of new things (and a few recycled old ones). One that caught everyone’s attention was a patent that was granted to Boeing for a force field.

    Chicken Little was right. Twice. Maybe even three times. The other half wants to know when he can get high speed Internet and whether the FCC’s new rules apply or whether he needs to go send a dingo to Congress by jetpack. One of the reasons I don’t use Gmail all that much is because there are a gazillion people who have sent me email and I have no idea who they are or why they wrote to me five years ago. I have to admit that it’s a typical situation – I could have done a little digging and figured it all out – but the people at CNet posted how-to turn off the…

    Any Apple fan on the planet could tell you that new iPhones are usually announced and released during the same month every year: September. In fact, by looking at the iPhone 5s and iPhone 6 launches, one might try to predict the iPhone 6s release date and announcement event. One site claims to have learned the exact dates for both the announcement and released of Apple's new iPhones. While the release date certainly makes sense, it couldn't possibly be more wrong about the date Apple's next iPhones will be unveiled. Continue reading...

Challenging markets, increased competition, rising expectations and always on technology have created a perfect storm of never-ending tasks that beg to be done. When you look at those who succeed and compare them with those that don’t or those that achieve merely adequate results, one of the differentiating factors is how people use their time. So here, in a quick read (because I know you are short of…

I really want to ship, but it has to be right. For those who do not know the 80/20 rule, it’s a variant of the misnamed Pareto Principal wherein Vilfredo Pareto created a mathematical formula in 1906 to describe the unequal distribution of wealth in his country, observing that 20% of the people owned 80% of the wealth. This was then applied to other areas and seemed to hold true. In reality, Tom Cargill had it right…

The Verge audience knows our staff and genuinely cares about us. They write us long posts about ways to improve the site and what they like, and when they leave we get heartfelt breakup letters.

And yet, many have strained trying to figure out what the hell Reddit is. Is Reddit a forceful expression of democracy on the internet? Is it a weak feudal system run by warlords? Or is it merely "a global platform for online communities to connect and share?" Maybe. Or maybe it's just like every other media platform: an algorithm that's been endlessly gamed. Yes,…

  • Microsoft's big Bing Maps update pulls a page from the Google Maps playbook

    Nathan Ingraham
    6 Jul 2015 | 11:22 am
    While Google Maps remains the gold standard for online mapping, Microsoft is getting ready to push out a huge update to its Bing Maps service that looks like it'll compete well with Google's offering. The Bing Maps preview is available today, and it's a much-needed update that brings in far more contextual information than the service previously offered. When you search for a destination or landmark, Bing Maps now pulls up a "card" on the left side of the screen that contains info like open hours, Trip Advisor or Yelp reviews, Wikipedia info, and much more. It's far more useful than the…

    6 Jul 2015 | 11:00 am
    The Association of Universities for Research in Astronomy (AURA) today released their plans for the High Definition Space Telescope, a futuristic high-definition space observatory the group wants to succeed NASA’s James Webb Space Telescope (JWST). The proposed telescope has a primary mirror that’s nearly 40 feet across — nearly twice the size of JWST. The new proposed telescope should be situated at the second Earth-Sun Lagrange point (L2), an area of space nearly 1 million miles from Earth. Its main goal is to directly image dozens of Earth-like exoplanets throughout our Universe.

  • Users won’t tolerate sub-quality enterprise apps

    3 Jul 2015 | 8:39 am
    (Image Credit: iStockPhoto/Andrew Rich) There is certainly no shortage of enterprise software – but there is a shortage of enterprise software that is actually used by employees. Why? Because most enterprise app development teams make software the way they always have: They focus on the value that the app provides to business managers and not enough on how the app could add value to the end user. It’s easy to forget, but your enterprise employees are app consumers and they undoubtedly enjoy using apps like Evernote, Dropbox and Shazam for personal use on their mobile devices.

Even if every app on your device used Sense360, it would only have around a 5% hit on your battery after a full day. The company's new SDK which launched today allows developers to…

    6 Jul 2015 | 9:10 am
    (c) At the Computing Magazine Enterprise Mobility and Application Management 2015 Summit a few weeks ago, Allergan’s IT chief Wei Wang told attendees that introducing enterprise mobility into the enterprise is less about impressing stakeholders with technology and far more about proving use cases. “A big challenge,” Wang said, “has been convincing the business that mobility delivers value.” This is especially difficult because of regulatory obstacles in the pharmaceutical sector.

    (c) Ask any C-level executive about their cyber security strategy, and you’ll most likely get a plethora of different answers. It’s becoming more and more apparent that a company’s employees are as big a risk as outside threats; one survey found some workers would sell their own password for the right price, while another argued the millennial workforce would inevitably have an “indifferent” view over their security practice. So how can this be remedied? Andy Taylor, lead assessor and CLAS information assurance consultant at APMG, argues…

In June, survey data from Centrify found that one in three admitted suffering from ‘password rage’ – one in six were so frustrated they screamed or shouted in the office, while one in seven admit they tear a strip off their colleagues. Back in January, research from SailPoint showed 14% of respondents would give their work password to a third party organisation if the price was right.

    6 Jul 2015 | 11:36 am
    The wait is almost over If you've been champing at the bit (or chomping, if you want to get loosey-goosey with the original idiom) for Intel's Skylake-S launch, you can rest easy knowing that you're in the homestretch. Well, probably, While nothing is yet official, we've been hearing for some time now that Skylake-S chips will be announced at Gamescom on August 5, 2015, and that still appears to be the case. Chinese-language website Benchlife supposedly got its hands on some launch details for Skylake-S (Skylake for desktop), which will consist of the Core i7-6700K and Core i5-6500K…
  • Samsung Bumps Capacity of 850 Pro and 850 Evo SSDs to 2 Terabytes

    6 Jul 2015 | 10:22 am
    Double the capacityWe've come a long way since solid state drive makers tried pushing paltry 64GB and even 32GB capacity SSDs on consumers. Sure, you can still find them, but these days, much higher storage options are available. Such is the case with Samsung's 850 Pro and 850 Evo lines, both of which are now offered in up to 2TB capacity. Previously, both lines topped out at 1TB. Using Samsung's 3D Vertical NAND (V-NAND) flash memory, these 2TB drive options come with lengthy warranties -- 10 years or 300TB of written data for the 850 Pro, and five years or 150TB of written data for the 850…

Perhaps the biggest upgrade is the ability to share Hello URLs with social networks—Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn. Firefox Hello is Mozilla's attempt to offer online voice and video chat without any proprietary restrictions via the WebRTC standard, which Firefox, Chrome, and Opera all…

  • Transcend Intros 8TB External Hard Drive

    6 Jul 2015 | 1:09 am
    Part of the StoreJet 35T3 range Transcend has added an 8TB option to its four-year-old StoreJet 35T3 USB 3.0 external hard drive range, which also contains 3TB and 4TB models. According to the company, the drive boasts “real-world” transfer speeds of up to 200 MB/s and comes with 256-bit AES encryption. Tom’s Hardware suspects the 6.7 x 6 x 1.76 inch enclosure conceals an 8TB Seagate Active Archive internal HDD, an SMR-enabled drive introduced late last year for $260. For those who don’t know, SMR (Shingled Magnetic Recording) is a data recording technique in which roof shingle-like…
