    With the supposedly polished release of Windows 10 coming in two days, Microsoft should be putting its finishing touches on the operating system. Instead, it’s scrambling to fix a bug in its latest update, sent out through its Windows Insider Program last Saturday. According to CNET, the latest test version of the Windows software, build KB3074681, triggered unexpected behavior when some people attempted to uninstall programs through Control Panel instead of using the newer Settings screen.

    In the wake of increasing competition and ever-changing business requirements, enterprises need to think something out of the box. Outsourcing of non-core and repetitive business activities is one such option that can address the changing business requirements, and companies can effectively focus on the core activities. In a way, they can remain competitive in the market. When it comes to software projects,  it is better to outsource the work to an offshore software development company.

    What kind of creatures might we find populating the cosmos? Sebastian MünsterThe Search for Extra-Terrestrial Intelligence (SETI) last week got a US$100 million dollar shot in the arm from wealthy, Russian Silicon Valley entrepreneur, Yuri Milner. At the London launch of this new project, Breakthrough Listen, Stephen Hawking made some inspiring observations: To understand the universe, you must know about atoms — about the forces that bind them, the contours of space and time, the birth and death of stars, the dance of galaxies, the secrets of black holes.

DuckDuckGo is my search engine of choice (and is the page that opens in all new Safari tabs for me). If you are not using it as your default search engine, I’d advise you to start now. I started using DuckDuckGo well over two years ago. My initial impressions back then was that it was slow, the results were not nearly as good as Google’s and the name was stupid. None of those first impressions turned out to be true. Why DuckDuckGo? They do not track you. It always feels…

    Although many consumers are not familiar with Huawei, they are a company that I have seen selling smartphones for quite some time now. In the earliest days of the smaller Canadian carriers Huawei was one of the few companies that had smartphones available on their networks due to their use of the AWS band for HSPA which was uncommon in other devices here at the time. While Huawei has always had one or two flagship devices and makes some phablets, to me their core market was always mid range devices. Often these mid range devices are a downsized version of their flagship devices, and the…

The cost of NAND is still too high to make terabyte drives a mainstream capacity, but the prices have fallen enough to create a market for multi-terabyte SSDs among enthusiasts and professionals. Samsung has historically held density records (e.g. 1TB mSATA) thanks to its advanced NAND and packaging technology and with the release of 2TB 850 Pro and EVO models Samsung is the first SSD manufacturer to enter the multi-terabyte era.

If the watch becomes popular and only works with an iPhone, it could cause many users of other smartphone operating systems to switch. Also, it creates great incentives for those who want the Apple Watch to buy or upgrade their current iPhones too. Strategically, this move to have it only work with the iPhone is…

Energy becomes a ceramic heating method or electrically. Two types of solar roof panels, which are: • construction of solar thermal collectors by simply absorbing this energy in a liquid medium that will later be used as thermal energy • Module-this type of…

    Astronomers only somewhat recently confirmed the existence of planets orbiting other stars like our own -- in 1995. Since then, we've found nearly 2,000 exoplanets, and we're honing in on more Earth-like planets that look like our own little world. Amateur astronomers have helped to identify a few exoplanets, and it looks like we'll be able to find more and more of them. "You and I probably won't be travelling to these planets - but our children's children's children could be."

    The Chicago Tribune has a disturbing story about how the police in Hammond Indiana shut down an entire music festival because they didn't like a particular rapper, Chief Keef, who appeared via hologram (supposedly to avoid arrest for some outstanding warrants in the mid-west). The police don't even try to come up with some other bogus reason. They flat out admit that they didn't want Keef to perform and thus they shut it down: Hammond police Cmdr.

    Well, here's one we did not see coming at all. Both former Homeland Security boss Michael Chertoff and former NSA and CIA director Michael Hayden have said that they actually disagree with current FBI director Jim Comey about his continued demands to backdoor encryption. Given everything we've seen in the past from both Chertoff and Hayden, it would have been a lot more expected to see them both toe the standard authoritarian surveillance state line and ask for more powers to spy on people. At the Aspen Security Forum, however, both surprised people by going the other way. Marcey Wheeler was…

For starters given their price we suppose we shouldn’t really expect too much. For the Exilim EX-ZR3000, it will feature a 12MP 1/1.7-inch BSI CMOS sensor and a 25-300mm lens. This sounds like it will be ideal for those who…
  • Apple Music Reportedly Hits 10m Subscribers Since Launch

    Apple Music is Apple’s taking on music streaming. Will it be as good as Spotify, Pandora, Rdio, and etc.? It’s a bit hard to say, but according to initial reports, it seems that Apple may have since seen about 10 million subscribers to Apple Music since its launch. The service was launched last month alongside the release of iOS 8.4.These numbers were obtained by HITS Daily Double who claimed to have been given the information from anonymous sources. Naturally these figures have yet to be confirmed by Apple, but apparently these are statistics that have been shared internally by Apple…

  • The Singtrix is a karaoke dream

    Hannah Abrams
    15 Jul 2015 | 6:47 am
    My friends and I love to go out for karaoke – the only problem is: so does everyone else. We have our one corner in our one bar where we wait for hours so that one by one we can belt out our favorite karaoke jams: “Ain’t No Mountain High Enough”, “Wagon Wheel” and my personal favorite “Wannabe”. We sit there for the entirety of an evening, enduring several overly-confident singers going for those high ballad notes, and even worse, the plastered college guys who think it’s funny to botch “Barbie Girl”. When it’s finally my chance to go, the glory moments are… Continue…
  • Singapore just made augmented reality stamps a real thing

    Kayla Matthews
    13 Jul 2015 | 10:27 am
    Augmented and virtual reality tech is growing more popular by the minute. The difference between the two — if you don’t already know — is one takes place in a completely digital world while the other merges digital elements with that of the real world. Unlike VR tech, augmented reality devices allow you to interact with the real world in unique ways. Take modern AR apps for smartphones as an example. Yelp Monocle uses a combination of the device’s GPS and an internal compass to display nearby attractions such as restaurants, stores, bars and more. Google’s Ingress is one of the most…
  • The Technology Behind Fishnet Art

    8 Jul 2015 | 9:09 am
    Janet Echelman isn’t your typical artist. Far from the traditional image of a lone painter standing at her easel with only a brush and paint palette, she works in conjunction with entire teams to build enormous public art displays. Her sculptures, which hang from metropolitan skyscrapers throughout the world, are formed using a variety of traditional nautical techniques, a creative eye and cutting-edge technology. Echelman, a classically trained artist, began experimenting with net sculptures while visiting a fishing village in India. She uses a variety of woven fabrics and lights to create…

    1 Jul 2015 | 6:47 am
    We know the standard answer to the question in the headline: Because it’s cheaper. But is it really? Now, if you’re an endless tinkerer and do-it-yourselfer, more power to you. If you like to fix your own plumbing and electrical, do your own landscaping, install your own cabinetry, pave your own driveway, or do your own taxes, we respect and appreciate that. Heck, you can buy a titanium replacement hip online if you’d like to install one yourself. The question is, should you? While DIYing can seem to sometimes save money up front and be a satisfying endeavor, the fact remains that…
  • TechnologyTell Review: Phiaton MS 100 BA earphones

    Stanley Goodner
    30 Jun 2015 | 2:23 pm
    When it comes to wearable personal audio, I tend to prefer on- and over-ear headphones. Not so much earphones, even though I’ve experienced some really great products for sound and/or features. For me, in-ear devices are all about the comfort and how well they can hold up to my binge-listening on a daily basis. If it’s not comfortable, you’re not very likely to wear it all the time, right? Now I’m a fan of Phiaton’s products for both looks and performance. But nothing prepared me for the level of comfort with one of their latest earphones. Design & Connectivity At first glance,…

    The scary news last week was that a couple of guys demonstrated they could hack into a Jeep and take control of it. Later, more details came out that suggested you might want to avoid Chrysler cars altogether. The industry appears to be waiting for the first major catastrophic accident before putting resources into fixing this problem at the proper level. They are slowly forming industry groups to look at it -- but at the current rate, their fix will come long after a lot of us are dead.

    Dell's Latitude 12 Rugged Tablet is designed for people who work in the field, for the military and explorers, for industrial work and first responders. This system can handle some harsh conditions, including temperatures between -20 and 145 degrees and drops from more than four feet, as well as spills, mud, dirt and sand. It boasts an 11.6-inch screen, fifth-generation Intel Core CPUs, up to 12 hours of battery life, and up to 512 GB of solid-state storage. That sturdiness is something I'm all for.

Stephen Hawking and a group of other high-profile space scientists joined with Russian billionaire Yuri Milner this week to announce a new $100 million effort to search for intelligent alien life. The funding will go to the Breakthrough Initiatives' Breakthrough Listen program. Breakthrough Initiatives is a 10-year multidisciplinary effort. The move comes as NASA continues to release stunning photos of Pluto captured by the New Horizons space probe.

    Game-streaming service Twitch on Thursday joined Apple and other tech companies in swearing off its dependence on Adobe's Flash. The move away from Flash will happen in stages, but Twitch has promised its community that the gradual rollout will advance at a steady pace. Twitch began the transition to the more secure HTML5 and JavaScript by hybridizing its streaming video player. The controls have been replaced with HTML5 objects, but the streams running below are still Flash.

    27 Jul 2015 | 7:27 am
    Google's new service for organizing and backing up images blends some of the best of what Apple and Yahoo have rolled out in recent months. These services come as smartphone cameras get better, and people take more photos and video with them. The problem is many of the images simply sit on the phones, taking up valuable space. Worse, digital memories can disappear when phones are lost or stolen. Photo services from Google, Yahoo and Apple all store copies of those photos and video online. Images taken with tablets and stand-alone cameras can be added, too, giving you one home for your entire…

    Say goodbye to your stock broker and financial planner. No more trips to Wells Fargo -- you can get your home loan refinanced on your iPad. The financial tech boom is in full force, driven by Silicon Valley entrepreneurs creating Web and mobile technology to offer personal and business loans, manage IRAs and college savings accounts, plan retirement, buy and trade stocks, and refinance mortgages. Many of the financial services once offered only by people charging hefty commissions are now delivered by lean startups using lines of code, whose apps have extended credit at sometimes eye-popping…
  • More Women Crafting Online Businesses on Etsy

    27 Jul 2015 | 7:26 am
    Women-owned businesses may make up about 30% of all U.S. enterprises, but on Etsy, they are the majority. A report released Thursday by the company said 86% of sellers on the online creative marketplace are women. Sellers are also more likely to have a college degree (56%) and have a higher-than-average household income of $56,180. The flexible hours of online marketplaces and the ease of setting up shops have allowed more female micropreneurs to monetize their talents in new ways, said Sucharita Mulpuru, retail analyst at Forrester Research.

    After much hype and an abundance of testing, Windows 10 -- the latest version of the Microsoft Windows operating system -- begins this week, with release starting July 29. The new OS is scheduled to roll out in phases, going first to Windows Insiders and then being released in waves to users who have made reservations online. Enterprise users will begin seeing Windows 10 on August 1. Windows 10 will be the "last" version of the operating system. Rather than releasing future upgrades as discrete, numbered generations, Microsoft plans to roll out continuous updates as part of its operating…

    Social media giants including Twitter, Yahoo, Facebook and Google are pushing back against Senate legislation that would require them to alert federal authorities of any terrorist activity, according to industry and government officials. In private meetings on Capitol Hill, industry officials have told lawmakers and congressional staff that they already ban grisly content like beheadings and alert law enforcement if they suspect someone might get hurt, as soon as they are aware of a threat. But tech officials also said they worry that the proposed legislation is too broad and would…

  • A “Faces Of DEF CON” Clique?

    Bill Brenner
    15 Jul 2015 | 5:25 am
    Recently on Twitter, infosec pro Marcus Carey voiced his dislike for all the “Faces of DEF CON” avatars people are using. Specifically, he said every time he sees one he wants to unfollow the person. Asked why, he opined that it was “infosec clique culture at its finest.” I responded that I was keeping my own avatar and that he could go ahead and unfollow me. It was an honor to be included in the “Faces of DEF CON” series by artist and fellow infosec pro Eddie “EddieTheYeti” Mize, I told him. He unfollowed me (he later re-followed) and asked…

A moment of reflection if ever there was one. It occurred to me that Liquidmatrix just had it’s 17th birthday this past February. That is a helluva long time for a website of any description. It has been a lot of fun to see the site grow from an insanely (ugly) basic HTML site to a heavily trafficked site with multiple members either writing and podcasting. I’ve been making a lot of architectural changes to the site and now, I’m…

    Soon, in various publications, articles will appear with advice for folks attending Black Hat and DEF CON for the first time. Advice for newbies is important, and I’ve written my own survival guide for that over the years. But for this post, I’m speaking to the battle-hardened veterans who have made the journey repeatedly over the years. Having attended too many of these to count, I consider myself a veteran. Or, to put it another way, I consider myself among the jaded. “Jaded” is a negative word. It’s typically used to describe someone who is burned out and no longer impressed with…

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…

That’s approximately 1 million units. A collaboration between 29 partners, including Lancaster University,  Barclays, Samsung and The Wellcome Trust, the micro:bit is the BBC’s most ambitious education initiative since the 1980s when the BBC Micro introduced many children, including myself, to computing for the first time.

  • EE unveils the first sub-£50 smart phone, the Rook. That’s over 10 times cheaper than an iPhone 6

    Chris Price
    7 Jul 2015 | 6:42 am
    Remember when smart phones were luxury items that people aspired to maybe own one day. Well those days are well and truly gone and suddenly £500 plus for an iPhone seems ridiculously expensive indeed. OK the £49.99 Rook from EE lacks the sex appeal of an iPhone 6 perhaps. But given it’s less than 10 per cent of the price of an entry level iPhone 6 (£539 SIM free) I’d say it’s pretty darned good value. As you would expect for this sub-£50 price tag, the Rook isn’t exactly stuffed to the gills with fancy features – just a basic 4.0-inch WVGA display with a…

  • LG to introduce flat 4K OLED TVs in Korea soon

    Ron Mertens
    27 Jul 2015 | 4:16 am
    In January 2015, LG introduced six new OLED TVs, including flat, curved and bendable ones - and all of them featuring 4K resolution. Up until now the company only launched two curved OLEDs (the 55" and 65" EG9600). LG today says that they will soon launch new OLED TV models to the Korean market, including flat OLEDs.This is great news as even though LG claims that image quality in curved panels is better, many consumers prefer flat OLEDs as these look better when wall mounted. The price of the flat models will be the same as that of the curved models.Read more about LG to introduce flat 4K…

  • 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…

    I wish we have traffic signals where cut-out cats pop-up on the road. No more plain red lights. Let me explain.To anyone who has travelled on Indian roads, this should be pretty obvious; to others, it might sound fatally amusing. One thing that vehicle drivers in India seem inherently incapable of doing is stopping before the white lines drawn at traffic signals (that is if they decide to stop in the first place).Thankfully, there is ONE thing that can stop almost all of them: cats. A cat crossing ones path is considered inauspicious (to put it mildly) and Indians would do anything to avoid…

However, some other things are not as unified as they (theoretically, at least) should be, as several aspects of the EU countries and citizens are not standardized.

    Tripp and Tyler are Christian comedy legends and have a deep understanding of technology in the workplace, specifically with churches. So the following video below is perfect, noting that some of the most important conversations or emotional conflicting communications should not be done with emails. With my own fat fingers, I think I have to agree. Especially on mobile devices. I will undo their advertisement at the end and just say to go visit their office and have that conversation in person.

    (Arizona State University) Extreme weather events can cripple crucial infrastructure that enables transit, electricity, water and other services in urban areas. With weather extremes becoming more common -- from devastating hurricanes and flooding to record drought and heat waves -- it will be increasingly important to develop infrastructure in different, more sustainable ways.

I’ll stick with Flickr. Here’s why. If you want unlimited free storage, this may work for you, though when you upload your photos, you have to use Google’s ‘high quality but free’ setting, not the original setting. This means RAW and other file formats will be converted. Also, there doesn’t appear to be a way to share the link directly to the image file — rather all shared links jump to a Google…

    Instagram is full of creative, inspiring accounts that challenge our notions of art, photography, and different mediums.

Luce, an Italian makeup artist, creates these jaw-dropping and sometimes terrifying 3D paintings directly on his hand. Many are cute and include our favorite characters from Disney movies, while others make us wonder if they're paintings or real life.

    22 Jul 2015 | 2:22 am
    Xiaomi’s latest addition to its list of innovations was outshadowed by another. Last week the Chinese company launched two new products- Xiaomi smart water purifier and Xiaomi 4K TV. The smart purifier was launched along with the 4K TV by the Chinese firm. The 4K TV took the limelight for obvious reasons. Everyone was asking the same question, what is the point in having a smart water purifier? This smart purifier is a part of Xiaomi’s Mi Home network, yet it was met with surprise and muted ridicule – after all do we need our water purifiers to be “smart”? Similar to any other water…

    27 Jul 2015 | 5:00 pm
    Astronomers only somewhat recently confirmed the existence of planets orbiting other stars like our own -- in 1995. Since then, we've found nearly 2,000 exoplanets, and we're honing in on more Earth-like planets that look like our own little world. Amateur astronomers have helped to identify a few exoplanets, and it looks like we'll be able to find more and more of them. "You and I probably won't be travelling to these planets - but our children's children's children could be." The Kepler Space Telescope has found a 'Earth 2.0' exoplanet (now called Kepler-452b) that's less than twice the…
  • Police Shut Down Hologram Concert Of Rapper Because They Don't Like His Lyrics; Pretty Clear First Amendment Problem

    Mike Masnick
    27 Jul 2015 | 3:21 pm
    The Chicago Tribune has a disturbing story about how the police in Hammond Indiana shut down an entire music festival because they didn't like a particular rapper, Chief Keef, who appeared via hologram (supposedly to avoid arrest for some outstanding warrants in the mid-west). The police don't even try to come up with some other bogus reason. They flat out admit that they didn't want Keef to perform and thus they shut it down: Hammond police Cmdr. Pat Vicari said the promoters were warned the concert would be shut down if Chief Keef performed. "We spoke to the promoter several times, and they…

    Last week, we wrote about the fact that the State of Georgia is suing Carl Malamud for posting PDFs of the Official Code of Georgia Annotated, and sending them around. I've been discussing this with a number of lawyers and other experts over the weekend and have to say that I made a significant error in the original post, which I apologize for. I said that courts frequently rely on the annotations of the law, thus effectively making them a part of the law. This was wrong and it was poor reporting on my part based on incomplete understanding of the situation. Having discussed this with…

    India's government has finally released the country's recommendations for new net neutrality protections, and the report makes it very clear: they're not impressed with Mark Zuckerberg's vision of a Facebook-dominated, walled-garden Internet future. If you recall, Facebook's recently took a nasty international public relations beating for its disregard of net neutrality, with content companies dropping out of the purportedly-altruistic program in droves. These companies complained that the program, which gives consumers in developing nations free access to some Facebook-approved…

    Well, here's one we did not see coming at all. Both former Homeland Security boss Michael Chertoff and former NSA and CIA director Michael Hayden have said that they actually disagree with current FBI director Jim Comey about his continued demands to backdoor encryption. Given everything we've seen in the past from both Chertoff and Hayden, it would have been a lot more expected to see them both toe the standard authoritarian surveillance state line and ask for more powers to spy on people. At the Aspen Security Forum, however, both surprised people by going the other way. Marcey Wheeler was…

    Ars Technica has a review of Android Auto. While we love the interface, we just wish there was more of it. Android Auto only covers a subset of the things you would want to do on an infotainment system. The result is an interface that - depending on what you want to do - will have you bouncing back and forth between two different interfaces. It's almost like installing Windows 8 in your car - you've got one modern, incomplete interface paired with a more comprehensive legacy interface. Android Auto can't control the AM/FM radio, CD player, or satellite radio. You also can't adjust the screen…

To see exactly how well the new operating-system goes on with old hardware, Softpedia performed a quick test of installing and using Windows 10 on a 7-year-old Acer Aspire One powered by Intel Atom N450 processor clocked at 1.66 GHz, 1 GB of RAM, and a 320 GB hard disk. The results were quite surprising, the total installation took just 15 minutes from a USB drive and Windows 10…

    Anything connected to the internet is vulnerable to outside access and security violation by hackers, and network connected "Smart Cars" are no exception. Just imagine the horror of having your car taken over by hackers remotely while you are driving at high-speed on a highway, and suddenly the vents of your car starts blasting cold air at the maximum setting, the radio switched to the local hip hop station at full volume, the windshield wipers turned on and wiper fluid blurring the glass while you push buttons on your dashboard to stop this mayhem without any success.

    In most offices, creating an invoice will take a lot of time. To make one, you need to determine your clients and the amount of money needed to create the bill. After identifying the details, you have to make the bill and then print it. You also need to track the bill to know if it’s paid or not. If there are complaints, you have to check all of your records to verify it. All of these processes will consume a lot of time. Making an online invoice is not just less expensive, but is also more organized and will take up less time. If you want to create PDF invoice, you’ll be glad to know…

    Now that Google has moved Google Photos away from Google+ and has tied it into Google Drive, Google has started adding all sorts of features I plan to blog about later. However, this feature roll-out was announced yesterday and is worth a special shout-out. (I’m a fan-boy of Google Maps.) As described by the Google Maps blog, the “Time Line” feature on Google Maps will not only let you tie location information to a Google Map, if you use Google Photos, it will display those on the timeline and map, as well. A similar “photo-on-map” feature has been on Flickr…

    A lot has changed during the two weeks since I posted my view of the Confederate flag being used by Southern state  governments in a way that suggests the people of that state are honoring some type of mythological concept of heritage . If you are among the 12 people who read this blog, I don’t need to catch you up. South Carolina did the right thing. Other states should follow. And, members of the U.S. House of Representatives should also. From the Washington Post story, “As S.C. prepares to lower battle flag, Boehner calls for Confederate review,” comes this quote that…

    Funny or Die and the music festival Bonnaroo “teamed up” to take four “old people” in their 70s to Bonnaroo so the other 80,000 attendees could see how cute four old people can be when interacting with festival goers and hearing new-fangled music. Old People At Bonnaroo from Funny Or Die   In addition to being blatantly ageist bigotry, the premise seems to fall apart when you consider that Funny or Die’s criteria for being an “old person” is being born before 1946. By that definition, here are some other cute old people they could have…

    Data is eating me alive. Every gadget these days can shoot photos and record video. The move to smaller but faster SSDs hasn't helped with storage. I captured 275GB of photos and videos on my last trip. Just one trip! And I'm just a hobbyist photographer with a mere 12MP camera. If you shoot with any regularity and a 20MP+ camera you'll easily be clocking more than a terabyte a year. Where on earth do normal people store that much data?

Google announced many welcomed Android improvements such as a battery saver mode and lock-screen notifications; something you'd previously need to use add-ons for as mentioned in Android is better. More uses of the Android operating system emerged: Android Wear, Android Auto and Android TV. A smartphone won't be the only thing that comes to…

While the web clipper is primarily used for saving snapshots of web pages to Evernote, the updated version is much more efficient at archiving Gmail messages.

A few weeks ago, BMW has launched the BMW F30 3 Series LCI (Lifey Cycle Impulse) revealing the mildly updated 3 Series. The car received some minor cosmetic changes, but the biggest impact will be the powerplants installed in this vehicle. The car has received a lightly redesigned headlights package which now looks more a keen to the 7 Series design, making the much discussed issue of the headlights disappear rather nicely. The headlights now feature a few more…
  • Is 3D Printing the Future of Construction Too?

    27 Jul 2015 | 8:52 am
    Last week, news broke that ZhuoDa Group, a Chinese 3D printing company manufactured i.e. ‘printed’ the house using 3D printing technology, or ‘Additive Manufacturing’ (as it is called by western companies). Unfortunately, most of news outlets didn’t even name the company properly. We took the time to contact the company and learn a bit more about the process used and why the company decided to move on what might be a pivotal upset for the construction industry. Typical house build lasts anywhere from 4 weeks to 4 months, depending on the continent where you…
  • A B-52 Had A Daunting Landing At Oskosh Airfield

    27 Jul 2015 | 3:58 am
    America’s biggest air show, EAA AirVenture in Oshkosh Wisconsin, finally had their biggest visitor yet! It’s a B-52 Stratofortress bomber, visiting one of the most appealing air shows held in the territory of United States and it made a big impression. The reason why BUFF (Big Ugly Fat Fucker – an affectionate term used for this awesome aircraft) never visited this airfield is its sheer size! The B-52 is pretty much as wide as airfield’s main runway, making landings a daunting challenge for even the most experienced pilots. The occasion for the big airplane’s visit…

    According to Foxtrot Alpha, Israel has just sent sixteen AH-1 Cobra helicopter gunships to Jordan, to fight the Islamic State and the growing threat of terrorism in that area. This is a rather daunting showcase of how much the neighboring states are actually perplexed by the issue of attacks within their borders, thus once sworn enemies are now helping each other in ways like this. The deal was set and done months ago, with the reveal for the public happening right now. The helicopters have been refurbished, upgrades were made, done by U.S. contractors on site according to the source in…

    25 Jul 2015 | 8:14 am
    It seems Audi RS7 owners have a particular and growing affection for ADV.1 lately! The ADV.1 Wheels are one of the best custom forged wheels available today and they bring a level of classiness to this world as well. The Audi RS7 seen in this photoshoot by William Stern Photography is another prime example of the modding options for this vehicle overall. The Audi RS7 utilizes one of the more potent engines available in the Ingolstadt’s car manufacturer lineup.

  • Making the Most of Shooting in Crappy Weather

    Terry White
    26 Jul 2015 | 9:11 pm
    As a portrait and fashion photographer I rarely have to worry about weather because I’m usually shooting in studio and controlling the lighting and environment. However, when I travel I become a travel/landscape photographer and just let me admit that it’s way way way more challenging. The 3rd stop on my Adobe tour took me to Hong Kong. Since it was my first trip to Hong Kong and I had plenty of time (a week) I was in no rush to go out shooting on day one. I arrived late Friday evening and on Saturday it looked like the shot above. I went out for lunch and captured the above shot…

    I’m traveling in Asia for the Adobe Create Now/CC Launch tour. My first stop was Auckland New Zealand and my hotel room just happened to have a balcony. Whenever, I have a private balcony that’s an added bonus when it comes to photography because it usually means that I can leave my camera setup for extended periods of time to shoot long exposures and time-lapse scenes. With a beautiful view of the harbor I decided to shoot a time-lapse. Since I don’t shoot time-lapse very often I Googled “best time-lapse settings”. Most of the result offered pretty much the same…

  • Aperlite YH-500N Review: A Great Low Cost Speedlight for Nikon & Canon Photographers

    Terry White
    6 Jul 2015 | 9:11 pm
    Speedlights are great for being able to light your subject on location. You get a portable, battery operated solution that with the right modifiers can be a great asset. The only problem is that the name brand speedlights by Nikon and Canon cost hundreds of dollars. This makes it hard to justify buying two or three of them. My main speedlight is a Nikon SB910 and it’s currently going for $546.95 at B&H. That price point puts them in the range of studio strobes. At the end of the day you need a good light that works with the functions of your camera such as TTL, and doesn’t eat…

    ‘What? Sony already released the Xperia Z4 that we are hearing about the Z5?’ If the above was your reaction to the story that is already talking about the successor of the highly convoluted Sony Xperia Z4, then you are definitely not the only one. We were just as surprised to learn about the possibility of a Z5 when it has not been absolutely clear whether Sony ever brought the Z4 to the party. For the most people, the Xperia Z4 was the Xperia Z3 Plus the way it was announced in India. It was a minor upgrade and one you saw Sony release very half-heartedly, barely pumping any…

While the likes of jasmine did interest us for a while, we always ended up going back to the official app primarily because of the stability that it provided.

    Motorola Moto G was one of the top devices in the mid-range tier and segment from last year. The device not only came in with very decent specifications but also with a design that was not too bland and boring. However, one spot where the Motorola Moto G lost out to its elder sibling that was the Motorola Moto X was the entire customization game. Yes, the phone did come with back shells that could be swapped, but that was about all that you could do with the phone. There was no option for users to be able to use, say a wooden finish back or even a leather back panel and you had to go back to…

    Ford is developing a range of advanced front-light technologies designed to prevent accidents and keep night riders safe. The technology is camera-based and geared towards detecting movements of the vehicle’s steering wheel. The first development is labelled ‘camera-based advanced front lighting system.’ It is based on older technology; an adaptive lighting system and traffic sign recognition. It interpreted traffic signs and used GPS information to broaden the headlight’s reach on corners and at traffic circles. In the absence of GPS data, the new technology uses cameras to identify…

    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…

    The new iOS app Triller is a music video creator that doesn’t need you to have any editing chops. The app is designed to let you shoot a video from part of or one entire song from your library of featured tracks or your own collection. You then shoot multiple takes that can run for the entire length of the clip. Shoot as many takes as you want and customize these with the app’s 14 available filters. The app will then automatically edit these takes to turn it into one music video. Think of the app as your personal professional editor. Of course, you can share these on social media.

I also discovered that autobiographies and/or books written in the first person are best enjoyed when the author is reading the words rather than a third-party narrator. An audiobook is only as good as the quality of the narration. Even the best writing can fall flat if the narrator is unable to do justice to the words.

    Regular screening increases the chances of detecting certain cancers early, when they are most likely to be curable. However, screening strategies vary in intensity and value. Many people have a lack of understanding about the trade-offs of screening. Studies report that patients and many physicians overestimate the benefits and are unaware of and/or downplay the potential harms of cancer screening. High intensity screening strategies are not necessarily high value care. In a paper published recently in the Annals of Internal Medicine, the American College of Physicians (ACP) issued advice…

Sounds like simplicity is good, can you go too far? Before you can simplify you need to have a clear understanding of what you are trying to say in the first place. You can oversimplify by leaving out essential information and not…

Looking back on that event it is great for me to see that I am still good friends with many of the people who were there that day.  On Friday the 27th May, 2005, I set off on my Mambo travels again.

    I have a client who is concerned with some of their departments bypassing the organization’s traditional IT resource acquisition process, and going directly to cloud vendors for their IT resource needs.  Not really unique, as the cloud computing industry has really disrupted IT provisioning processes, not to mention near complete loss of control over configuration management databases and inventories.

    Chances are, in an average day, you are not accomplishing as many tasks as you would like … and neither are your colleagues or your employees. What is mystifying about that statement is that it seems today’s workforce is putting in more hours and more effort than ever before coinciding with an increased adoption of IT devices and applications designed to improve user productivity. In fact, this has been a key driver for organizations to enable workforce mobility – to provide flexibility in accessing business IT resources (applications, data, email, and other services) from any device at…

    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…

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.

    While trends turn away from traditional “convenience foods” toward more natural options, consumers have less time than ever. Enter delivery services, taking the work (or at least some of it) out of homemade meals. Food tech startups offering meals by mail are popping up across the country, covering a range of food preparation.

    C Ho

    Companies have long assumed that if they build a better mousetrap and effectively communicate the benefits, consumers will come. Most companies’ efforts, therefore, are centered on the development and optimization of new products and/or services. Developing a superior product, however, is only half the picture. For a new product/service to be adopted, consumers have to be willing to part with an existing product/service/behavior. This is easier said than done, even when the new product or service is clearly superior. Barriers to change The problem: people are generally averse to change. A…
  • Ulta vs. Sephora, a Shopper Loyalty Battle Royal

    Choosing where to shop for makeup is a very personal decision. Here in Chicago there are a lot of options, but in my mind there are two main competitors: Ulta and Sephora. When I first moved to Chicago seven years ago, Ulta dominated the market, and I suppose that makes sense given it is a Chicago-based company. When I ventured into Ulta for the first time, just to explore, I remember that being the moment when my floodgates of makeup-crazed girly-ness opened. Yes, they carried some of the drugstore brands in one section of the store, all very familiar thanks to my teen years, but to the…

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…

  • Noctua NH-D15S Dual-Tower CPU Cooler Review

    The Sorcerer
    23 Jul 2015 | 12:16 pm
    The Noctua NH-D15 is one hell of a CPU cooler. The improvements over the NH-D14 is appreciated since it allows installation of taller heatspreaders. But when I reviewed motherboards like Gigabyte X99-UD4, I found that the space between the CPU cooler and the first PCIe x16 slot is non-existent when I mounted Zotac GTX 780Ti Extreme AMP! Edition. Yikes!!! At that point, I felt that motherboard makers should be more ‘friendly’ with larger CPU cooler especially with an Intel X99 platform with up to 4x PCIe x16 slots. Yeah right. Easier said than done with an ATX form factor. Noctua…

So far, it is known that the GPU is based on Fiji core whose full version has 256 Texture mapping units and 4096 stream processors. How much of the core specs would be reduced for the Radeon R9 Nano is currently unknown. What is known is that the Radeon R9 Nano is a 7.64″ long with 175w TDP and will also be using HBM. Judging by the images from AMD’s live stream, the Radeon R9 Nano doesn’t seem to be having any DVI output as well. It will be…

    Earlier it was reported that Case Labs accused Thermaltake (especially Shannon Robb) for ripping-off case designs and also posted a lot of information about interaction between Kevin Keating, the Vice President of Case Labs and Shannon Robb, an employee in Thermaltake. The Situation escalated quickly and people (including reviewers and Youtubers) taking sides. Some didn’t care, some practically went on a witch hunt in Facebook, tech forums and even in Reddit. Some welcomed it because it did bring aesthetics and design accessible to a larger crowd.   Though to be fair, Core series…
  • Noctua NH-C14S C-Type CPU Cooler Review

    The Sorcerer
    16 Jul 2015 | 12:22 pm
    Noctua sent a very good looking CPU cooler- the NH-C14S. This is a C-type CPU cooler which has a top-down airflow design. The CPU cooler can accommodate up to 2x 140 x 140 x 25mm fans, but with a choice of a single fan, you can either mount it towards the top for having high clearance required for tall spreaders and even maybe some sinks on the motherboard (you’ll be surprised). I am keen on reviewing this since this does provide some level of low-profile height with a full-size heatsink design, making it look good even for few small form factor DIY desktop systems.

A remnant of the good old days before status updates on Facebook and tweets on Twitter became part of the air we breathe nowadays. Back then blog rolls were the ‘friends list’.

    Ripples of the landmark decision of the US Supreme Court upholding same-sex couple’s right to marry have covered the entire world specially online. In a vote of 5-to-4 the Justices have ruled that the US Constitution grants same-sex couples the right to get married in all 50 states. A resounding victory for the gay rights movement. The New York Times has a good breakdown of the decision which highlights opinions from the Justices who dissented in the case. No union is more profound than marriage, for it embodies the highest ideals of love, fidelity, devotion, sacrifice, and family. In…

  • Tonyo Cruz: National ID and SIM Card registration are a scam

    30 May 2015 | 2:44 am
    There’s no problem with having multiple ID cards. The real problem lies in the services linked to those cards: declining budgets, quality, coverage, scope, rising fees, and more expensive premiums. 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.

    Social Media enhances learning, develops needed contacts, speeds problem-solving, and helps you create business transformation.

I emphasize the social media aspect, because, my fellow IT leaders, we in IT are not a terribly social lot. I attend several startup events, enterprise IT events, and marketing events each year, and I tend to…

Indeed, with the popularity of iTunes and Spotify, it’s pretty tough to find people below a certain age that appreciate albums as anything more than a collection of songs that can be skipped or played through at random. However, for many, the album still represents the optimum expression of musical quality: a work of art comprising 10 (ish) songs, a statement of intent, a...Read the full article:…

  • Hearing Is Believing: The Best Audiobooks Narrated by Authors

    Mihir Patkar
    27 Jul 2015 | 11:00 am
    I recently discovered that you can finally finish your reading list using audiobooks, as they allow you to multitask in a way that the traditional reading experience doesn’t allow. I also discovered that autobiographies and/or books written in the first person are best enjoyed when the author is reading the words rather than a third-party narrator. An audiobook is only as good as the quality of the narration. Even the best writing can fall flat if the narrator is unable to do justice to the words. And who better to bring the author’s true feelings for each word to life...Read the…

    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…

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…

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.

    Here’s how to build a grid layout for WordPress via shortcodes and WP_Query: A lot of WordPress developers immediately rush to query_posts in order to create custom loops. But, query_posts is meant for altering the main loop of a WordPress page/post (actually, it’s not even recommended for that anymore). Using get_posts() is okay… but, if you want that real WordPress flavor using WP_Query is the way to go.

  • CPUs: Core Count vs. Clock Speed, Which Is Better?

    Miguel Leiva-Gomez
    27 Jul 2015 | 4:25 pm
    The central processing unit (CPU, or processor) on your computer is by far one of the strongest determining factors of its performance. Without a fast CPU, the rest of your hardware will overwhelm it with more tasks than it can muster. During the mid 90s, when the desktop PC market was picking up the pace significantly, CPUs would have only one core. Today’s modern CPU is an architectural marvel, with several different channels for distributing and temporarily storing tasks. They’re smarter, faster, and more dynamic. But new CPUs have raised new questions among the public. In…

  • Gaming through the ages: older Australians are embracing video games

    Jeffrey E. Brand, Professor at Bond University
    27 Jul 2015 | 7:01 pm
    Video games are no longer the domain of the young alone. Chip Griffin/Flickr, CC BYOver the past decade, stereotypes that video games were a popular medium intended only for youths have been eroded. It is clear that video games are also a popular medium for adults. The rapid growth of ever-older audiences playing games on mobile phones and on consoles has been brought about by easier and more intuitive user interfaces, repeated stories about the health benefits of play for older players as well as demography. The average age of Australians who play video games is now 33 years. They play for…

  • What is the search for extraterrestrial intelligence actually looking for?

    Charley Lineweaver, Researcher at Research School of Astronomy and Astrophysics and the Research School of Earth Sciences at Australian National University
    26 Jul 2015 | 9:46 pm
    What kind of creatures might we find populating the cosmos? Sebastian MünsterThe Search for Extra-Terrestrial Intelligence (SETI) last week got a US$100 million dollar shot in the arm from wealthy, Russian Silicon Valley entrepreneur, Yuri Milner. At the London launch of this new project, Breakthrough Listen, Stephen Hawking made some inspiring observations: To understand the universe, you must know about atoms — about the forces that bind them, the contours of space and time, the birth and death of stars, the dance of galaxies, the secrets of black holes. But that is not enough. These…

    A prehistoric scene showing ancient penguins, elephant seals and giant marsupials. A rich diversity of both marine and land creatures once lived at Beaumaris, Melbourne, about 7 million years ago. Peter Trusler, Monash UniversityFrom about the age of eight onwards I regularly collected fossils from around the beach area on the Beaumaris foreshore of Melbourne’s Port Philip Bay. I still recall the day I sat down on the beach there and put my hand on something sharp. It was a five million year old tiger shark’s tooth, still razor sharp and in mint condition. The fossils from this site are…
  • Tour de France race etiquette seems silly in the context of doping

    Craig Fry, Associate Professor, Centre for Cultural Diversity and Wellbeing at Victoria University
    25 Jul 2015 | 5:30 am
    2015 Tour de France leader Chris Froome and other race contenders. AFP, CC BY-SAI have always found it funny how some of the Tour de France riders get so annoyed when someone transgresses on race etiquette around seemingly minor issues. The latest example of this grumbling was from Chris Froome on stage 19 yesterday - Vincenzo Nibali apparently attacked when he shouldn’t have. I mean, it’s not like professional cycling, or the Tour de France for that matter, has ever been a paragon of virtue. And it is a bike race isn’t it? It just seems a little odd that a sport like cycling with such…

    27 Jul 2015 | 7:21 pm
    One of the year's most anticipated smartphones, the One Plus 2, is finally here. Chinese smartphone manufacturer OnePlus announces today that it is releasing its new flagship. Successor to the "2014 flagship killer", the new phone has fans perking up their ears. Much like its predecessor, the OnePlus 2 isn't a slouch when it comes to specifications.

  • Woman celebrates 100th Birthday on Skype, dies shortly thereafter

    27 Jul 2015 | 6:58 pm
    They say Americans are living longer nowadays, but dang, I am not sure how long that can last. Everywhere I look, I see more overweight people -- myself included. As Americans eat more junk food and spend more time on their butts, heart disease and diabetes are on the rise, cutting the lifespans of many. Reaching 100 years old is becoming much harder to achieve. Recently, however, a woman named Amor Macias (aka "Mama Moy") did just that -- she celebrated her 100th Birthday! Unfortunately, some of the family was unable to participate in the festivities -- not in person, at least. Instead,…
  • VeriFyle reveals Cellucrypt, a new multi-layer encryption key management technology

    VeriFyle, the company headed by Hotmail inventor and co-founder Jack Smith, has a new encryption key management technology which it believes will "re-invent how the world thinks about secure sharing and messaging". The major difference is that any object that is shared to the cloud using the system is encrypted for individual users rather than in bulk. Cellucrypt offers such a high level of security that VeriFyle believes that it "makes illicit bulk-access to customer data virtually impossible." It's a bold claim, but Cellucrypt builds on the traditional a public-key system with the addition…
  • Toshiba Portégé R30-A200SMB 13.3 inch business laptop [Review]

    Brian Fagioli
    27 Jul 2015 | 4:28 pm
    One size does not fit all when it comes to laptops. Sure, everyone loves a super-thin and sexy notebook, but business users in particular have much greater needs. For instance, an optical drive is much less popular with consumers nowadays, but many business workstations still have the need. Many consumers have moved on to HDMI and DisplayPort, but businesses still have older monitors and projectors that are VGA only, so a VGA port on a laptop is needed. While Toshiba makes great consumer-grade computers, its business-class machines are where it truly shines. The 13.3 inch Portégé R30, a…

For uninitiated, the crossguard lightsaber, as it is commonly referred to, features light projected out of either side of the sword that will serve as crossguard, much like those ancient European longswords.

E’ bene dire che alcuni di questi cambiamenti sono stati ottimizzati per certe situazioni che però la Microsoft non ha spiegato veramente bene. Non temete: ci siamo noi che possiamo spiegarvi cosa è necessario fare con queste funzioni. Oggi vi parliamo degli aggiornamenti di Windows 10. Cominciamo col dire che Windows 10 prima di…

Come si può facilmente intuire, non si tratta mai di una decisione particolarmente facile, anche in virtù del fatto che per conoscere le persone con cui si vive è necessario attendere almeno qualche mese.

  • Tips & Tricks: How To Sell a File Over 2 GB

    23 Jul 2015 | 2:50 pm
    Even with the remote hosting option we mentioned last week, you may hit some trouble if the file you are selling is over the 2 GB limit we provide for remote files. But fear not! There is a work around. Our remote file size option being limited to 2 GB is a hard technical limit that is imposed by our web server architecture. That limit is derived from the maximum value that can be represented by a 32-bit signed integer, which is 2,147,483,647 bytes, which is 2.147 GB.Some people have asked us, and maybe you are asking it too, “why don't we just upgrade the web server to allow larger…

  • Moore’s law is still working with new 2D-electronics, just 1nm thin

    24 Jul 2015 | 2:13 pm
    This week scientists at Oak Ridge National Laboratory have created two dimensional nano-electronic circuits just 1nm tall (see Nature Communications article). Apparently they were able to create two crystals ontop of one another, then infuse the top layer with sulfur. With that as a base they used  standard scalable photolitographic and electron beam lithographic processing techniques to pattern electronic junctions in the crystal layer and then used a pulsed laser to burn off selective sulfur atoms (selective sulferization of the material), converting MoSe2 to MoS2. At the end of this…

Their customers are updating their storage system software every 2 weeks. In my past life as a storage systems development director, we would normally have to wait months if not quarters before customers updated their systems to the latest release. As a result, we strived to put out an update at most, once a quarter with a major…

    Containers? No, not the shipping containers but the much-hyped container technology in the computer industry. I am sure even if you have not used any of the existing container technologies, you must have at least read or heard about them. 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. In the process, I wish to help my readers as well.

Overall it gives you a glimpse into some of the newer approaches to management that have emerged from the Valley in the last few years (e.g. Holacracy, Lean).

    Blizzard recently announced that a big new expansion is coming to its free-to-play online digital collectible card game, Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft. It is called “The Grand Tournament” and is based on the “Argent Tournament” you might have seen in the ever-popular MMORPG, World of Warcraft.

  • Selfishly Altruistic: The Science Behind Sharing

    Renee Schmidt
    14 Jul 2015 | 1:09 pm
    Altruism is fascinating. Partly because it goes against what we understand of human nature —that people inherently desire the greatest amount of instant gratification with the least amount of effort. As I wrote recently, what separates us from our ape cousins is this very desire for instant gratification. Humans, because we have a better-developed pre-frontal cortex, can assess second, third, or even fourth order consequences of any given action, and CHOOSE to inject self-discipline in favor of a longer term outcome (i.e. pain now, gain later). The pre-frontal cortex is involved…
  • Are You Living a Lie? The Wisdom of Truth

    Renee Schmidt
    7 Jul 2015 | 8:05 am
    As a management consultant, my success hinges upon radical honesty. When a consultant is brought in, it’s usually because an injection of truth is required. As Albert Einstein put it best: “We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them.” People are afraid of the truth. Avoiding the truth about situations, people, and ourselves, however, prevents us from learning and keeps us stuck in repetitive patterns that thwart our evolution and the attainment of that which we truly desire. This is no different in an organizational setting. Companies that…
  • Manifesting My Desires: Am I Worthy?

    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. Three types of people will read this post; those with 1. healthy self-worth, 2. low self-worth and 3. inflated self-worth. Individuals with low and inflated self-worth are both egotistical; it’s just different sides of the same coin (sorry to be the bearer of bad news). Low self-worth often exhibits as not manifesting what we desire.

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. Too much noise and none of it is of particular value. I noticed myself busy with Facebook but not getting any particular value out of it.

    Now that Apple Music has finally been unveiled as part of the iOS 8.4 update it gives us a much better chance to see just what all the fuss is about. For those that have been very comfortable using digital music service Spotify for the past few years Apple Music has been somewhat of an interesting development. Initially it was thought that Apple were simply riding the coat tails of the aforementioned music provider trying to lure away iOS users to use their cheaper and more convenient music streaming service.

With the release of the Apple Watch came an innovative way of telling the time. 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. Not only this, but we can also be motivated by our watch through a snapshot of our daily activity, get directions and speak to our own…

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? Or will mobile finally be the one that knocks desktops off the edge and into oblivion? We’re not psychic, but the trends thus far allow for some very interesting patterns to emerge.

    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.

OnePlus' One was one of the most surprising and exciting smartphones of the year in 2014 though, bringing impressive specs, an affordable price and great hackability to Android fans around the world. Or at least, it brought all that to Android fans around the world who managed to secure an invitation to purchase the phone. Now, OnePlus is back with…

    A little more than four years ago, Google unveiled Google+, an awkwardly named social network that Google hoped would become a serious rival to Facebook. It goes without saying that didn't happen even though Google annoyingly tried to push the platform onto anyone who used any of its services. Google has spent the last several months chopping up Google+'s most useful pieces and making them separate services as it moves away from making Google+ the central hub for all Google-related activity. And on Monday, the company announced its most drastic step for breaking up Google+ year. Continue…

The idea is to use a built-in importer, in this case RichText, to do all the work for you. Note that this will probably need to be repeated on each Operating System install or upgrade.

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…

As a cartoon character, he's a legend; many of us, along with our parents, grew up with him. He even has his own star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. But if anyone asked you who the single greatest cartoon character ever created was, you might waffle. It's really not that hard. Bugs is GOAT. Let's start with the cartoons themselves. If you want a…

While the USA Freedom Act bans what's known as "bulk collection" of phone metadata, the NSA was given a six-month grace period to phase out the old program.

  • Is structural separation – or a ‘demerger’ – in the UK really that risky?

In part, this is because it refuses to let them. Another major reason, it turns out, is that its…

Smartphones have opened the windows to the outside world and has made the world and its vast knowledge so very small so those can fit into our hands. Right from helping with cooking,…
