  • FarmVille Is Back — and This Time, It’s Portable

    Remember FarmVille? Of course you do. Once upon a time, circa 2010, chances are that you either played it on Facebook or were annoyed by addicted friends seeking your help tending to their crops. It was the Facebook game that made Facebook gaming famous. A lot has happened since then — particularly to Zynga, FarmVille’s creator. The company boomed, went public, paid a lot of money to buy Draw Something developer OMGPOP, saw its stock crater, went through multiple rounds of layoffs and brought in former Xbox chief Don Mattrick to replace founder Mark Pincus as CEO. Although the…

Today at 3:25:21PM, EDT, the unmanned Dragon cargo spacecraft lifted off atop a Falcon 9 rocket from Space Launch Complex 40 at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Florida in rainy, overcast weather that NASA said only gave the launch a 40 percent chance of going ahead without delay.

    How can a battery last forever? As the leading innovator in cost-effective energy storage products, Imergy is stepping in the right direction to make the everlasting battery possible. Imergy utilizes a Vanadium flow battery design, originally thought up at NASA. The popular rechargeable Lithium Ion batteries, used today in most devices, consume its components in a very short time, preventing long term storage, in favor of its small footprint. The Imergy units are typically the size of a refrigerator. Vanadium flow chemistry process allows energy storage and retrieval to be 75% efficient,…

    Despite Amazon’s lofty ambitions to reimagine the multimedia center, its Fire TV streaming box entered the streaming-video fray earlier this month with a frustrating, fractured search engine. Amazon is taking some steps to fix the Fire's flaws—but so far it's not close to solving its biggest problems. See also: Review: The Amazon Fire TV Is Kind Of A Mess True, Amazon customer reviews of the device are generally positive—five-star reviews account for roughly for almost half of nearly 2,400 reviews so far; the average review is 3.9 stars out of five.

  • Americans Are Bullish On Technology's Distant Future, Less So Its Present

    18 Apr 2014 | 10:49 am
    Despite the number of popular dystopian novels written over the years, Americans have continually been optimistic when it comes to the future of technology. At least, the distant future of technology. We're far less sanguine about the technology that threatens to upend our lives today or tomorrow, as a new Pew Research survey suggests. In 1988, the Los Angeles Times took a break from crushing traffic (no, not really) to anticipate they'd have robotic maids and holographic conference calls in just 25 years. That prediction didn't come to fruition, but it hasn't stopped people from…

  • 5 Important Things To Consider If You're Still Running Windows XP

    18 Apr 2014 | 7:07 am
    Microsoft has finally tied its good old dog, Windows XP, to a tree ... and bashed its head in with a shovel. After 13 years of loyal service, Microsoft has finally cut off support for Windows XP, which means the company won't be issuing further security updates for it. But plenty of people are going to keep using Windows XP anyway; it's still operating in machines everywhere, from ATMs and point-of-sale systems to computers at government agency and large corporations. Fortunately, there are still several ways to stay protected now that XP is vulnerable to new attacks and zero day bugs…
  • How Technology Is Making It Great To Be A Music Fan

    18 Apr 2014 | 6:04 am
    I’m a music junkie. Like many of you, my life is often accompanied by a soundtrack. I’ve got playlists for working out, and just plain working. Music for when I’m feeling on top of the world, and music for when I'm down in the gutter. Songs that make me think, and songs that bring back memories. Music is important to me—and probably to you as well. But despite the importance of music, technology is really what allows it to be such a huge part of our lives. So how is tech going to shape the future for music fans like me and you? I needed to find out. I connected with the band…

  • The History of Technology, as Told in Wacky British Pathé Newsreels

    Harry McCracken
    18 Apr 2014 | 10:26 pm
    In an inventive, generous act, British Pathé has uploaded its entire collection of 85,000 pieces of footage from vintage newsreels to YouTube. If you stop by to check it out, you might have trouble pulling yourself away. It’s a fascinating survey of what happened to the world from 1896-1976, told in bite-sized chunks. The collection is searchable, so I pulled up some choice bits relating to computers–especially how they got used to automate practically everything in the 1960s. This stuff was amazing at the time–especially, it seems, if you were a British newsreel announcer.

    18 Apr 2014 | 8:01 pm
    Nick Statt of Cnet has a scoop: He’s reporting that Nike is laying off most of the people on its team responsible for the FuelBand fitness tracker. Instead of making its own hardware, the company will focus on fitness-related software henceforth. It’s impossible to hear this news without bringing up the fact that Apple CEO Tim Cook is on Nike’s board and wondering whether it relates in any way to any plans Apple might have in the smart watch/fitness category. There, I just did. But that’s all I’m going to say, because who knows? This I do know: I’m sorry to…
  • Facebook Adds a Feature That Lets People See Your Location — But It’s Optional, Optional, Optional

    Facebook is announcing a new feature for its iPhone and Android apps called Nearby Friends. If you choose to turn it on, and have friends who do likewise, you’ll get notified when you’re in the same vicinity — so you could discover you’re both at the same movie theater, for instance, or both happen to be attending the same conference. In broad strokes, at least, Nearby Friends is conceptually similar to Highlight and other ambient social-networking apps. The category was hot, very briefly, a couple of years ago — at the time, Facebook bought one such app, Glancee…

It said the total debt stood at $10.96 billion as of Sept. 17, 2012. Russia sees this lucrative in advancing the plans to build a gas pipe and railroad through North to South Korea.

At the time, the two Google founders, Larry Page and Sergey Brin, were barely out of college and, while great engineers, they did not have the business background to really take Google… This content is for Insider Monthly and Insider Yearly members only.

  • Tempering expectations for ad-based Chinese tech firms

    Jan Dawson
    18 Apr 2014 | 1:46 am
    As major US based tech firms such as Google, Facebook and Twitter have all held IPOs, attention has begun to shift to a cadre of Chinese web properties looking to go public. Yahoo’s earnings, reported this week, were entirely overshadowed by Alibaba’s results for the previous quarter, because Yahoo owns just under a quarter of it and is expected to list in the US later this year. Also this week, Chinese microblogging service Sina Weibo had its IPO in the US. However, Weibo’s poor showing at its IPO is a useful reminder China’s tech market is very different from the…

The further back you look, the further forward you can see. ~ Winston Churchill Microsoft 1.0 had one of the most successful business models of all time. But no matter how successful Microsoft became, management seemingly could not abide the thought of any other technology company sharing the spotlight of success.

    30 Mar 2014 | 1:16 am
    By: Hillel Fuld (@hilzfuld) So I was asked to come speak at a Microsoft BizSpark event last week. The topic I chose was how to market your brand in 2014. I know, shocker. The thing is, I genuinely believe that my whole “philosophy” in marketing can be summed up in two words. Of course, you are going to have to watch the entire speech to learn what the two words are. Wait, what do you mean you can fast forward to the end to get the two words and not watch the whole thing? You’re a tricky one… Anyway, to use a sentence from one of the classics, I would say to market…

    Drivers often approach the idea of connected cars along the lines of a one-to-one ratio: one driver to one car linked by a data-gathering and reporting interface that opens up new aspects of the operator-vehicle relationship both during and after a drive But in the rapidly evolving world of connected driving, new approaches to that scenario are also emerging. For instance, what if connected cars allowed an owner to track information generated by multiple vehicles and multiple operators — as in a fleet or a family — in real time and from outside the car?

    As some folks know, I'm a pretty big believer in standing while you work rather than sitting. It takes a little while to get used to, but these days I greatly prefer standing. While the first few weeks are a bit difficult on your legs and (especially) feet, once you get used to it, it's pretty easy.

    We've written a few times in the past about research done by Paul Heald on copyright and its impact on the availability of certain content. He's recently published an interesting new study on how the DMCA's notice-and-takedown regime facilitates making content available by decreasing transaction costs among parties. As we've discussed at length, the entertainment industry's main focus in the next round of copyright reform is to wipe out the notice-and-takedown provisions of the DMCA. The legacy recording and movie industries want everyone else to act as copyright cops, and hate the idea that…
  • The Logical Conclusion Of Zero Tolerance: College Prof Suspended Because Daughter Wore A GoT Tshirt

    18 Apr 2014 | 6:36 pm
    When we talk about the stupidity that are school-affiliated zero-tolerance policies, those stories usually revolve around an administration's inability to marry common sense with their reactions to non-issues. This can produce somewhat varied results, from really dumb stories about children being children and ending up in serious trouble, to a far more angering practice of victim-blaming. What it all boils down to, though, is an overreaction to certain tragic situations that results in bureaucratic lunacy on a level I never would have thought possible.

When I ran my first half marathon this past December it was a very flat course and my main goal was just to finish while keeping an eye on my heart rate. My mile pace for that race was “slow and steady.” For the Ojai Half Marathon there are several grades that are steep enough to slow down my pace significantly and I want to plan for that in my total time.

    Believe it or not, an awful lot of people still buy CDs. When digital music purchases surpassed physical music sales in 2011, one would have thought that the world had forever changed and no-one was buying CDs anymore. Then it was all about on-demand music services like Spotify, Rdio, Beats Music and Google Play’s All Access. When it was reported that digital music sales dropped in 2013, many thought this was the beginning of the end of digital music sales.

  • I analyzed more than a million bitcoin tweets. Here’s what that looks like

    19 Apr 2014 | 8:00 am
    I recently got my hands on more than 1.3 million tweets, all mentioning bitcoin or creator Satoshi Nakamoto, spanning the entire month of February 2014. My goal was to get a sense of who’s actually interested in bitcoin (enough to tweet about it, at least) and to see how activity on Twitter tracked with big news stories. Here’s what I found.

    19 Apr 2014 | 7:36 am
    The beauty of open-source software projects is the passion they generate from so many people. The drawback of open-source software projects can be that same sort of passion. with so many developers and so many vendors involved, there is often a proliferation of projects that can confuse the issue — and customers. That’s what happened around the whole OpenStack and PaaS situation. That’s one topic that OpenStack COO Mark Collier and Executive Director Jonathan Bryce take on in the latest Structure Show podcast. OpenStack is the four-year old cloud framework initially pushed by NASA and…

    Nike has let go most of the members of its FuelBand wearables unit and will stop developing new versions of the device, according to a report by CNET. The tech news site quoted an unnamed person “familiar with the matter” as saying that the firm has laid off 70 to 80 percent of its 70-person hardware division and will not produce a new version of the FuelBand, but will continue to sell the existing version. Some industry observers believe Nike has decided to align itself with Apple, which is expected to launch an iWatch or other wearable device that might run Nike’s Fuel…

    Casey Chan on Sploid, shared by Casey Chan to Gizmodo

    No, it's not a one way mirror. It's much cooler than that. MIT scientists have invented a new invisible mirror that can show reflections like a typical mirror but also be see through like a window. The magic is in the alternating 84 ultra thin layers typical glass and tantalum oxide. It's a mirror but when you spin it, it becomes transparent. Some light passes through, some light gets reflected.Read more...

    RiverRock is a marijuana company in Denver, CO, that was founded in 2009 by an enterprising medical malpractice attorney some four years before recreational weed become legal in the state. Today, RiverRock operates two dispensaries, grows its own, and makes edibles, extracts, and concentrates. It used to cultivate all its cannabis indoors — a quantity John Kocer, RiverRock's CEO, wouldn't specify, but says comprises between 3 percent to 5 percent of the state's $14 million monthly weed market.

    Written by Vaughn Rachal  The fact that some companies expect digital investments to produce returns immediately, shocks me.  To expect that just because you use digital tools or channels that results are going to instantly appear is delusional. I remember when my kids were young and we played video games, my wife would sometimes tell me, “Come on honey, let the boys win”.  I responded, “They will, one day”.  I knew the day would come when I would never win a video game against them again, unless we played an old school game like “Galaga”, one of my favorites.  My boys were 6…

From CNN: “On March 7, 2014, Mt.Gox Co., Ltd. confirmed that an old-format wallet which was used prior to June 2011 held a balance of approximately 200,000 BTC,” the statement said. Karpeles said that the discovery was reported to lawyers on March 8. The bitcoins were later moved to “offline” wallets. I’m sorry but, how in the hell do bitcoin supporters…
  • “Cyber”: Critical to security nutrition

    Jack Whitsitt
    3 Feb 2014 | 11:36 am
    A few weeks ago, I sat down next to a friend who happened to be in the middle of a conversation between a lawyer, a hacker, and philosopher and I was just in time for the “I hate the word ‘cyber’. FamousHacker#2138123 and I are trying to get people to stop using it.” Sigh.  At this stage the anti-“cyber” routine is really starting to sound a little bit high pitched – and I even *come from* a hacker community. But, it reminded me both that I owed Liquid Matrix an introductory post and that even though there is a place and role for the word, much of the hacker/security…

  • Google Maps Street View G-Shock Store Taipei

    I was looking at some G-Shock websites when I saw this. It’s actually a Street View inside the G-Shock Store in Taipei. I seldom use the Google Maps Street View, only when I’m looking at my friend’s or relative’s house abroad. It seems that this feature of Google Maps has been around for quite sometime already and they call it Business View (ok :D). It’s actually pretty cool being able to walk inside stores and businesses (virtually) and being able to see their products or items on display. I hope we’ll get to see our local stores’ own Business View…

  • OtterBox Case for Samsung Galaxy S5

    12 Apr 2014 | 5:36 am
    OtterBox sent over an OtterBox case for the Galaxy S5 earlier. Samsung has recently launched the Galaxy S5 and just yesterday, I got hold of Samsung’s latest flagship smartphone. The Galaxy S5 may be water and dust resistant but it is not shockproof. One of the things I do first after buying a smartphone is to look for a durable case. Of course you don’t want to risk your smartphone from getting chipped or scratched in case it accidentally slips from your hand. The OtterBox case for the Samsung Galaxy S5 I got was from the Commuter Series. The Commuter Series is one of OtterBox’s cases…

  • Sonos eliminating the frustrating wired network requirement

    We've been huge Sonos fans here at Gear Live for years, but if there's one niggle we've heard complaints about from users more than any other, it's that you have to plug in one Sonos component into your wired network. Normally, this would mean buying the Sonos Bridge in addition to whatever speaker components you'd want to place throughout your home, because it's rare that the place you want to put your Sonos device just happens to be where your networking equipment is. The result? You'd have to pay $50 for the Bridge, upping the price of entry. Well, now Sonos is…

  • What is the Heartbleed Bug all about? Be safe, Change your Password.

    10 Apr 2014 | 1:56 am
    This Bug is in the OpenSSL’s implementation of the TLS/DTLS (transport layer security protocols) heartbeat extension (RFC6520); and hence the name Heartbleed bug. This bug allows anyone on the Internet to read the memory of the systems protected by the vulnerable versions of the OpenSSL software. This compromises the secret keys used to identify the service providers and to encrypt the traffic, the names and passwords of the users and the actual content. This allows attackers to eavesdrop on communications, steal data directly from the services and users and to impersonate services and…

Here is Giulia D'Amico, Vice President of Business Development, on their present and future: OLPC's mission to empower the world's children through education is far from over. OLPC is thriving and making more inroads at bringing education to those who can't easily access it. OLPC recently formed a strategic alliance with the Zamora Teran family through many of their…

With the hardware now long past its life expectancy, spare parts hard to find, and zero support from the One Laptop Per Child organization, its time to face reality. The XO-1 laptop is history. Sadly, so is Sugar. Once the flagship of OLPC's creativity in redrawing the human-computer interaction, few are coding for it and new XO variants are mostly Android/Gnome+Fedora dual boots. Finally, OLPC Boston is completely gone. No staff, no consultants, not even a physical office. Nicholas…

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

And this is mainstream media. There should be a bar by which one goes to prison for these kinds of lies.” Not only does Sean Penn defend authoritarianism, but he suggests that critics should be imprisoned for calling Hugo Chavez a dictator.

His simple response was to ask anyone from the crowd who had never sinned, to throw the first stone. Each one of the accusers slithered away.I tried to imagine.

    There was once a fly, Shown a beautiful sky, Thrown a wonderful pie, O'er joyed! it tried, Flew higher and high, Till the lights drew nigh; Then hit a damn glass ceiling! Tried harder than hell,Cast all the spells,Rang all the bells,But down it fell,Godspeed him well! What could it tell? Kept hitting that damn glass ceiling! No longer a kid,Evolve it did, Diamond claws it hid;The skies now lit, This time it flew, Fast as it could; @###, who removed the damn ceiling?! Moral of the poem is: Always wear a helmet before you fly.

    The world wide web represents democratization of news and views. The sheer freedom it provides as an independent platform above and beyond geographic boundaries sometimes makes its users forget that they still need to operate within the limits imposed by the laws of the land they are otherwise governed by.I came across this interesting site published by some Asian School of Cyber Laws. It is an interesting portal which lists out a few dos and donts based on Indian laws. The gist is as follows: "Before posting on Facebook, ask yourself one question - If this comment…

    We should look at our inherent strengths to solve some of our pressing needs. As a country, there are a few things pretty peculiar about India. Take for instance, the sheer size of some of its problems. Some of our 'problems' are as large as a few other countries' entire populations put together. Herein lies the opportunity as well. We are also, a massive sea of humanity yearning to serve its unmet needs and earn our rightful place under the sun. Technology has a huge role to play as well; not at loggerheads but complementary.October last year, Abhishek (Eko) and Ignacio (ex BMGF) published a…

    Moto 360 is one of the new smartwatches based on Google’s latest platform Android Wear. The device is also the first smartwatch that attempts to mimic the traditional timepiece with a round face, a feature that could give the device a break into the mainstream. So far, smartwatches are often considered bulky, squarish, short battery life, the Moto 360 seems to address all the problems to bring to a jewelry-like wearable device with leather and stainless steel interchangeable bands and yet can perform all the functions of the smartwatch, including face changing and touch interaction and…

    Topic: Starting the quality system from scratchDescription of Topic:The opportunity to establish a new quality system from scratch has three potential results. The most rewarding is a cross-functional systems approach that balances quality activities to achieve product performance requirements and meeting internal and external customer requirements (needs & wants). The least desired outcome is a failed quality system that is so dysfunctional that it threatens the organization’s very existence. The final result is a quality system operating between the extremes of the above-described…

  • Surf, Sun, and Startups – San Diego is Becoming a Major Player: Part 3

    Will Schmidt
    18 Apr 2014 | 5:48 pm
    My exploration into the San Diego tech startup scene has alerted me to a common gripe for startups that revolves around venture capital funding and talent. That is, many would argue venture capital opportunities in San Diego are slim, and keeping talent here over Los Angeles and the Bay Area is difficult. However, what’s an entrepreneurial life if there are no hurdles? We’ve seen the folks at 1120 and EvoNexus work to overcome these obstacles just as we’ve seen SDSU, UCSD, and USD unite to funnel high grade talent into the scene: these problems are 100 percent solvable.

    As leaders, we are challenged each day to say “yes” to ever-increasing responsibilities. We’re charged to say “yes” to increasing sales with less time and fewer marketing dollars. Our answer must be “yes” to serve more patients, increase test scores, respond to more emails, and grow market share. We’re encouraged to say “yes” to community service, expand our networks, enroll our children in perpetual activity, support aging parents, and grow individually. In order to be most impactful, effective, and influential as leaders, we must not only master the word “yes,” but…

    It’s Tuesday, February 4, and my alarm goes off at 6:15 am. With 6 hours sleep, I’m not happy to be awake. I mentally berate myself: should have gone to bed earlier! Not wanting to disturb my traveling companion, I slink into the bathroom. I left my computer and headphones there the night before, ready for my 6:30 meeting. I’m in Bali, Indonesia, 13 hours ahead of the East Coast, and trying to sync up with colleagues on both coasts is nearly impossible. An hour later, I emerge from the windowless bathroom and into the sunlight, ready for work. I munch on a gluten-free protein ball for…
  • Q1 Venture Capital in DC Is Lower Than Last Year. Should the Region Worry?

    Ronald Barba
    18 Apr 2014 | 7:30 am
    In the first three months of 2014, 43 companies in the DC region raised a combined total of $217.5 million, as reported in a quarterly MoneyTree report released today by PricewaterhouseCoopers and the National Venture Capital Association. While that number seems impressive, it marks an 18.4 percent decline in Q1 venture funding from last year’s $266.5 million. Just yesterday, it was reported that venture capital in the US totaled $9.47 billion for the first quarter of 2014 – a 57.6 percent increase from the $6.1 billion raised in the first three months of 2013.

    Softpedia News (Sebastian Pop)
    18 Apr 2014 | 8:16 am
    Flat panels are pretty much the only sort of display technology that still has any sort of momentum, but it seems even this type of screen has finally passed its prime. The market segment grew by a fair bit each year, sales-wise, but it won't do the same for the next three. While sales went up by around 20% between 1993 and 2013, on average, it will drop to 5% growth per year for 2013-2017. It might slow down even faster actually, until it no longer shows a significant rise at all. If it h... (read more)

    Spire has released many cases over the last few decades, but the ones it has launched most recently lack the embellishments that the cases most often covered by the media possess. Basically, Spire is playing things safe and simple for once. We can't exactly say that Spire's namesake was all that often reflected in its products. A spire is a tapering conical or pyramidal structure on the top of a building, or sometimes a building itself. Obviously, PC cases don't have that sort of shape, so t... (read more)

We flew to the Philippines in search of a BPO (read: outsourcing company) and soon decided that instead of outsourcing to someone else, we should get into the outsourcing business. We setup a BPO in Manila, and it was in this BPO that we learned about the pains of time, attendance, scheduling, HRIS and payroll in Southeast Asia. Thus, PayrollHero was born.

  • How Will Quebec Compete in an English Technology World?

    18 Apr 2014 | 9:27 am
    The Parti Quebecois is aiming to expand the reach of Quebec's language laws. Basic human rights violations aside, any new restrictive laws that are passed will make it increasingly difficult and expensive for local businesses to compete both at home and abroad. Undoubtedly, Quebec’s strongest financial market is Montreal, whose development is at serious risk. During the 1960s and 1970s, Montreal stood as a beacon of technological advancement, proudly hosting Expo 67 and displaying a renewed energy with the 1976 Summer Olympics. At the time, the city was the largest commercial and…

Unlike Akana’s first two short films, Emergency Call doesn’t delve into mental health issues, but it features the same dark tone that is quickly becoming a staple of Akana’s directorial work. This time, she has some help from frequent collaborator Megan Rosati, who joins her behind the camera. Rosati, who appeared in both of Akana’s previous shorts, also wrote Emergency…

    18 Apr 2014 | 6:00 am
    What’s the single most important thing you want visitors to see on your church website? Often, there might be a specific announcement you’d like to draw attention to. For instance, if there’s a major fundraising event, or perhaps a concert coming up, you want visitors to be instantly aware of it when they land on your site. Of course, you could change the front page, but you also want new visitors to see whatever main content you have their. Also, changing the front page every time something happens is a pain. And what if someone lands on an interior page? Say, “Hello” to Hello Bar.

    17 Apr 2014 | 9:00 pm
    (NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) Glaciers and ice sheets are commonly thought to work like a belt sander. As they move over the land they scrape off everything -- vegetation, soil and even the top layer of bedrock. So a team of university scientists and a NASA colleague were greatly surprised to discover an ancient tundra landscape preserved under the Greenland ice sheet, below two miles of ice.

    Being able to breath underwater, à la Aquaman, sounds like a made-up superpower. But it needn’t remain the stuff of pure science fiction. After all, fish manage to breath underwater. And some, like the lungfish, are adept at breathing air too. Theoretically, for a human to breath underwater all that’s required would be some sort of gill-like system. Enter Jeabyun Yeon, a student at the Samsung Art And Design Institute, who thinks he’s come up with exactly that. Dubbed the Triton Oxygen Respirator, Yeon’s design features miniature artificial gills extending out from a…

Also tried sticking to a small ‘band’. In this case used instruments from SampleTank: Blue Phaser electric piano, Xpander Phat synth pad, Cosmic Pad synth pad, and Minimoog echo 2 synth lead. Also brought in some Abstract Atmosphere 50 from Garageband — which I used as my DAW. Image is from something I took out the window a bunch of years ago.

    14 Apr 2014 | 7:38 am
    A couple of YouTube video makers are back at it again, driving kids crazy by putting an old piece of technology in front of them and recording their reactions. This time, the Sony Walkman, the portable casette player that debuted in the late 1970s and eventually gave way to digital music players like the iPod. The kids poke and prod the devices, and nope, it's not a walkie-talkie, as one young man...

  • A Simple Guide to the Aereo Supreme Court Case

    19 Apr 2014 | 9:04 am
    One of the least publicized, but possibly one of the most important media industry copyright cases of the last decade goes to court next week. The Supreme Court decision not only will affect Aereo's future, but also the possible futures of all rebroadcasting services. Aereo's argument is that it does not transmit to many people at once. It transmits to you, individually, from your antenna, through your cloud service, into your computer for your viewing only. Comments

  • Mobile is so over - so here are 20 possible "New" Next Things

    28 Mar 2014 | 2:05 pm
    Interesting 2 paragraphs from Fred Wilson's blog, talking about "what's next": But the roadmap has been clear for the past seven years (maybe longer). The next thing was mobile. Mobile is now the last thing. And all of these big tech companies are looking for the next thing to make sure they don’t miss it.. And they will pay real money (to you and me) for a call option on the next thing. It isn’t clear if the next thing is virtual reality, the internet of things, drones, machine learning, or something else. Larry doesn’t know. Zuck doesn’t know. I don’t know. But the race is on to…
  • Candy IPO Crushed

    26 Mar 2014 | 4:57 pm
    King Digital stock price fall on IPO day courtesy Yahoo Finance It was no great surprise to us that the makers of Candy Crush, King Digital Entertainment Plc , had a less than illustrious IPO. As we wrote in February, it was high time to run for the IPO gate before it closed on them, and they have. Good luck to them, they now have $500m in the bank now, a useful cushion against the slings and arrows of outrageous future misfortune. The c £8.5bn valuation (now c $7bn) will not be quite so easy to live with, I suspect. But nothing changes our analysis since February, this stock is a still very…

Facebook has bought the virtual reality technology firm Oculus VR for $2bn [£1.2bn], it announced on Tuesday.

A detailed company statement said that Facebook recognised how Oculus had built a solid following among game…
  • So long Archie and Veronica - the Birth of the Web killed you

    12 Mar 2014 | 9:32 am
    Everybody loved Archie & Veronica before 1993 Today is the 25th "birthday of the Web", although strictly speaking that was the first proposal submitted, a memetic sperm if you like. The actual thing only came out in any recognisable form about 4 years later in 1991. For me it arrived 5 years after it's birth. It was summer 1994, the day I downloaded the newly released NCSA Mosaic software on Windows (It was already out on UNIX, but I didn't have a UNIX tin anymore). Suddenly, all that stuff I'd been doing before was easy (FTP, Gopher et al). The thing about Mosaic was it was easy to use,…

  • Awesome Stuff: Stand While You Work

    Mike Masnick
    19 Apr 2014 | 9:00 am
    As some folks know, I'm a pretty big believer in standing while you work rather than sitting. It takes a little while to get used to, but these days I greatly prefer standing. While the first few weeks are a bit difficult on your legs and (especially) feet, once you get used to it, it's pretty easy. There's definitely been a trend in sit-stand setups lately, so for this week's awesome stuff post, I thought we'd look at three new crowdfunding projects concerning standing desks. First up, is a the StandDesk -- which is a standard sit/stand alternating desk. There are lots of these on the…
  • Study Shows How Notice-And-Takedown Reduces Transaction Costs In Making Works Legally Available

    18 Apr 2014 | 7:39 pm
    We've written a few times in the past about research done by Paul Heald on copyright and its impact on the availability of certain content. He's recently published an interesting new study on how the DMCA's notice-and-takedown regime facilitates making content available by decreasing transaction costs among parties. As we've discussed at length, the entertainment industry's main focus in the next round of copyright reform is to wipe out the notice-and-takedown provisions of the DMCA. The legacy recording and movie industries want everyone else to act as copyright cops, and hate the idea that…
  • The Logical Conclusion Of Zero Tolerance: College Prof Suspended Because Daughter Wore A GoT Tshirt

    Timothy Geigner
    18 Apr 2014 | 6:36 pm
    When we talk about the stupidity that are school-affiliated zero-tolerance policies, those stories usually revolve around an administration's inability to marry common sense with their reactions to non-issues. This can produce somewhat varied results, from really dumb stories about children being children and ending up in serious trouble, to a far more angering practice of victim-blaming. What it all boils down to, though, is an overreaction to certain tragic situations that results in bureaucratic lunacy on a level I never would have thought possible. School shootings and violence are the…
  • Finally, Someone Acts Like An Adult: District Attorney Drops Charges Against Bullied Teen Who Recorded His Tormentors

    18 Apr 2014 | 5:33 pm
    South Fayette School in Pennsylvania, along with a complicit criminal justice system, recently made headlines with its groundbreaking anti-bullying program, which apparently deters bullying by punishing bullied students. Here's a short recap: A bullied student used an iPad to make an audio recording of other students abusing him. He brought this to school administration who a) called in a police officer (after being advised by its legal team that this might be a violation of the state's wiretapping law) and b) deleted the recording. The police officer, unable to actually bring a felony charge…

People follow a lot of eating guidelines based on all sorts of issues -- religious, ethical or other. There are all kinds of diets: to lose weight, to prevent high blood pressure, to save animals' lives, to kill fruits. Whatever diet suits your fancy, you might want to check out some of these stories on dietary restrictions and food beliefs.

    Alexandra Anghel
    18 Apr 2014 | 1:00 am
    Alexandra Anghel offers advice on when it's the right decision to say no to an investor.We have all heard the horror stories about how difficult it is to raise money, especially in Europe. Investors are used to saying no a lot and most of the time they have a valid reason for doing so. Not the right market, not the right product, not the right team.  So what do you do when you (finally!) get one of them to say yes? Do you analyze if they are the right match for your startup or if you have good chemistry? And when you get your hands on one of those coveted term sheets and it’s not…

    Adriana Galue considers the strategies and tactics involved in negotiation and the idea that adversarialism may not always be helpful when negotiating in business. Growing up in Latin America (LATAM), I was raised within  the framework that negotiating always involved adversarialism. Still today, when we talk about  “negotiating a good deal” in  LATAM, we think of a winner and a loser.Recently, while attending the Boulder, CO conference Startup Phenomenon, I had the great opportunity to expand my current perspective of what it means to successfully negotiate.

    Uber is starting to move towards being an everything-on-demand company. A big part of that is going to be delivering anything and everything people want at a moment’s notice. Of course, to do that, Uber needs people to actually do the delivering. So, how do you do that? By romanticizing the job!

    Console war update! Sony’s winning on the surface, but going a little farther into the numbers suggests a tighter race than is immediately apparent. We’ll start with consoles sold, since it’s the most obvious measuring stick. Sony has announced that, as of the first week of April, the PlayStation 4 has sold over 7 million units. Based on the NPD numbers from March, the Xbox One is at over 5 million sold – an unmistakable win for Sony in the early going. It’s hard to quantify the effect of all the bad press the Xbox One received after its announcement last year,…

But, others might go all Highlander on you, wanting to be the only one with such an excellent piece of backpack merch. Caution is advised. The TARDIS backpack actually comes in two styles – good old grade school style and a lighter knapsack. I’d say that one is more spacious than the other, but I doubt you’ll be wanting for space inside one of these. You know how TARDISes (TARDES? TARDII?) are.

    Wikipedia is a massive time sink. It so captivates you that you never know how long it takes once you start reading. You may look up something as simple as “duck” and hours later find yourself reading about agricultural practices of Ancient Mesopotamia. The chase down the rabbit hole of hyperlinks can be interesting, exhausting and at times really troubling, especially when you have serious work to do. Who knows how many millions of hours are collectively “wasted” each day by readers absorbed in cross referencing? One way to avoid getting sucked into Wikipedia is, of course, staying…
  • New Google Camera App Lets You Defocus Background

    17 Apr 2014 | 4:28 am
    One of the reasons why people prefer an SLR camera over compact cameras or camera phones, aside from the image quality, is that an SLR camera allows you to take photos with a shallow Depth of Field. Shallow depth of field makes the object of interest "pop" by bringing the foreground into focus and de-emphasizing the background. Achieving this optical effect traditionally requires a big lens and aperture, and therefore hasn’t been possible using the camera on your phone, at least, optically. Google has introduced a new mode, called Lens Blur, in the Google Camera app that lets you…

  • Popcorn Time is Netflix Type Movie Streaming for Pirates

    It has been argued, and quite successfully, that piracy can be fought back by making content readily available to paying customers. Services such as Netflix, Amazon Instant Video and Hulu are based on this very model and appears to be largely successful, both in business and in cutting down piracy so much that BitTorrent traffic has been reduced in North America to only 7.4% from 31% five years ago, while Netflix now accounts for nearly one-third of total internet traffic in the continent. This is all great if you live in the U.S. But what if you don’t? Movie streaming through the…

Each one has its merits and demerits. Embedding the original image allows the visitor of the blog or website or the intended recipient to view the full image without any further action. However, if the images are large like those from a digital camera with a several megapixel sensor, it might be…

  • How To Hide Spam Links In Blogger Comments

    Carmela Maraan
    24 Mar 2014 | 6:14 am
    Paul Crowe’s tutorial from Spice Up Your Blog will help show you how to automatically hide spam links in your blog comments. It removes any spammy links from future AND past comments, which will prove especially convenient when you’re too busy to sift through your comments one by one (like I do). There are two ways to do this. 1. CSS Paul’s first tactic is to use a small piece of CSS that will completely remove links in the comments. This removes the anchor text (link included) while retaining the rest of the comment. 2. jQuery The second technique involves placing a small…

However, it is only recently that B2B companies have begun to realize the importance of a properly documented content strategy.

  • Greed and the Wright Brothers

    19 Apr 2014 | 2:02 am
    The Wright brothers' critical insight was the importance of "lateral stability" - that is, wingtip-to-wingtip stability - to flight. And their great innovation was something they called "wing warping," in which they used a series of pulleys that caused the wingtips on one side of the airplane to go up when the wingtips on the other side were pulled down. That allowed the Wrights' airplane to make banked turns and to correct itself when it flew into a gust of wind. But when the Wrights applied for a patent, they didn't seek one that just covered wing warping; their patent covered any means to…
  • Judge confirms link between Apple and patent troll Rockstar

    Rockstar, the massive patent troll in which Apple is a majority shareholder, sued Google for patent infringement. Of course, Rockstar filed suit in the Eastern District of Texas, the usual venue for patent trolls. Because of Apple's involvement, Google motioned to have the suit take place in California instead, where it stands a much greater chance of winning. Judge Claudia Wilken sides with Google. She states in the ruling: Google and Apple's rivalry in the smartphone industry is well-documented. Apple's founder stated that he viewed Android as a "rip off" of iPhone features and intended to…

Is it just me, or do releases of major Linux distributions simply not create much excitement anymore? I remember a time when these releases were hotly anticipated and much debated. These days, they go by and nobody really seems to care. Is this a reflection of shifting…

    With the increased penetration of internet in our everyday life, issues with online privacy and security are becoming a key concern. The data that we input through the internet is not as secure as we hope it to be. VPN creates a virtual link or an Internet tunnel that connects two physical networks in separate locations and is accessible to all users. Security is guaranteed as the data sent through the tunnel is encrypted – hence the term is “private.” This security feature guarantees that there is no possible malicious interception by third party, such as hacking or espionage. And the…

    While I typically support efforts to add sanity to our overly-litigious culture that seems to encourage anyone to sue anybody for anything, I don’t think the lawyers at General Mills thought through the type of social media firestorm they would ignite by adding language to the company’s website alerting customers they can’t take legal action against the company if they’ve done things like download a coupon, enter a contest or, if read literally, liked on Facebook one of the company’s products, say, Cheerios or Wheaties or Macaroni Grill or Fruit Loops.

    With my bicycling friend, John Darwin, who also enjoys riding his bike in-town, I often head out on a Sunday afternoon looking for things I’ve never seen in Nashville. These days, that likely means a new real estate development or some area of town I’ve heard about, but have never seen. As the NCAA Women’s Basketball Final Four is in Nashville now (the championship game is Tuesday night, April 8), we decided to include a ride by the area of downtown where events are being staged. While that was out of the usual, the other things I ran across made me feel like I was…

    Starting over ten years ago, a long-running joke on this blog has been my fascination with (and mockery of) the recurring need inventors (including those who work for huge technology companies) have to re-invent the Cuecat. For those who don’t recognize the term Cuecat as the punchline of a joke, I suggest a rapid glance at its Wikipedia entry and the wonderful one-liner by the late Debbie Barham, the comic and humor writer who said the Cuecat “fails to solve a problem which never existed.” A couple of years ago, I referred to the repetitive reinvention of the Cuecat as the…

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

    A few weeks ago my DNS provider Zerigo sent an email stating that due to recent infrastructure upgrades they would need to raise their prices. For my meager DNS needs that ended up being a huge price hike: from $39 per year to $25 per month1. Prices were set to take effect a month later. I decided to put my current dev work — designing and building new photoblog functionality to showcase my Japan trip photos — on hold to move away from Zerigo. I chose to switch to AWS Route 53.

Easy, just get an external hard drive. Redundancy? Just get a Drobo or Synology NAS. More redundancy? Just backup the Drobo to Crashplan or Synology to Amazon S3 or Glacier. Done right? Sure those are all valid strategies for gadget lovers and professional photographers. I don't want to own, manage and think about more devices. Out of sight, out of mind.

    I have been thinking a lot about simplifying my life recently. I started a stellar new job four months ago and it felt like a great time to change other parts of my life. I used to be a slave to my startups. If I wasn't working, I had a perpetual feeling of guilt that I should be working. That lead to many all-nighters and eventually landed me in the hospital last year after fainting twice from fever and dehydration. That reads more like an accolade to the workaholic culture of Silicon Valley, which joyously consumes posts like how Marissa Mayer worked 130 hours per week. It was most…

    18 Apr 2014 | 4:17 pm
    Tech workers suing over an alleged no-poaching agreement among Silicon Valley firms are fighting an attempt by defendants to ban evidence that might portray Steve Jobs as a bad guy. The case centers on alleged secret agreements struck among companies including Apple, Google and Adobe that they would not try to hire each others’ workers. The tech workers say that drove down their wages and restricted their mobility. In the pretrial period, plaintiffs referred to materials such as outside blog posts referencing Jobs and Walter Isaacson’s best-selling biography of the former Apple chief.

    Dion Picco

    A few weeks back a colleague and I were driving through Seattle, and we began to debate the reach of ODBC as a key data standard.  His perspective was that ODBC was really a C/C++ technology, and that as people have largely moved to other programming languages, the importance of ODBC has declined as well.  Well, I didn’t buy that argument but needed to do some research before I could refute him.  As I mainly tinker with iOS development these days, my awareness of what is happening in the programming world at large is well out-of-date.  Well, it didn’t take long to dig up some…

    This is a guest post by Jay Baer. Brands have rushed to provide value (optimally) or promotions (typically) on every new communication platform, all of which are increasingly accessed through mobile devices, making customers’ relationships with brands solely a collection of micro-experiences. This is the “appification” of brand value. For decades, the key question has been “how valuable is the brand?” The key question moving forward is “how valuable are your apps?” Apple, of course, started this trend with the introduction of the first iPhone, but distilling entire companies…

    This is a guest post by Ben Plomion of Chango. When Facebook launched Facebook Exchange (FBX) last September, it was an important day in the history of online advertising.  Facebook accounts for some 25 percent of U.S. display inventory on the web. Now that inventory can be purchased with real-time bidding (RTB), and marketers can target their most valuable customers with a display ad on Facebook. But, though it didn’t receive as much attention as the launch of FBX, Facebook made another critical move in December when it allowed advertisers to target customers based on what they searched…

This officially marks the end (post April 8th, 2014) of Microsoft XP’s run. Statistics say that up to 30% of the world’s personal computers (PC’s) are still using the highly popular Windows XP. This is quite a serious figure, which of course means it cannot be ignored.

Over the last year I have gotten into alternative currency mining. During that time I have assembled a few rigs. For housing the multiple gpu rigs I had jerry-rigged them on wire shelving. The kind of wire shelving that you can find at Target or Wal-Mart for less than $50. This has been working out nicely for me up to now.

The Camera app feels streamlined overall, with noticeable changes in camera performance, features, and especially UI.  This of course stems from Google receiving sub-par feedback for image quality on their “flagship” Nexus devices, and since mid-2013 it’s become their main mission for mobile. LG already packed a decent camera on the Nexus 5, but in its first weeks of release, the final image…

  • The New Smaller 2014 Jawbone Era Bluetooth Headset

    Terry White
    6 Apr 2014 | 9:11 pm
    It’s been a while since I looked at Bluetooth headsets. After all my Jawbone ICON has been working just fine. However, I ordered the new 2014 Era by Jawbone because I thought I had lost my older model. I keep my Jawbone along with a couple of misc. adapters and wired Apple EarPods in a small vinyl pouch that I carry in my pocket. That pouch went missing for a week.  I couldn’t find it in all the usual spots that I normally leave it or drop it in. I figured that it was gone for good and that I had to replace the contents. I ordered the NEW 2014 Era by Jawbone. Although I hate…

  • Why I switched back to Pandora Radio from iTunes Radio

    Terry White
    27 Mar 2014 | 9:16 am
    I really wanted to like iTunes Radio for two simple reasons. The first is that it’s integrated into all my iOS devices and iTunes and that just makes it easier to enjoy and control. The second reason was that since I’m already paying for iTunes Match $25/year (that I absolutely love), iTunes Radio is delivered to me Ad free. Yes I had high hopes that I would be able to drop my Pandora Radio subscription (yes I hate ads), and just use iTunes Radio, however I just resubscribed to Pandora Radio ($3.99/month, which ironically bills through my iTunes account). Why go back? I went back…

    The Evangelist Marketing Institute -- Alex L. Goldfayn -- Techniques For Revenue Growth

  • Obstacles That Keeps Us From Marketing

    Alex Goldfayn
    14 Apr 2014 | 9:14 pm
    I define marketing as consistently communicating your value to people who can buy from you. Here are the obstacles that keep us from doing so: 1. Fear: Of failing; of offending; of rejection. This is the single greatest impediment to marketing action. 2. Perfection: You have many chances to make good impressions. Take action when your marketing is good enough. Only you will know it’s not perfect. 3. Procrastination: Responding to urgent issues (fires) is reactive and keeps a lot of organizations, big and small, from doing the good work of communicating with buyers proactively.
  • The Discipline of Doing

    Alex Goldfayn
    7 Apr 2014 | 8:45 am
    I received a lot of feedback from you regarding last week’s newsletter on the difference between knowing what to do and doing it (it’s discipline). A few of you said it was the best Evangelist Marketing Minute ever. So I spent some time last week defining the elements that go into this discipline: On-demand awareness: You may know what to do after you read an article, or attend a workshop, but can you recall it when it’s necessary? The information must be easily available, on paper, or in your head. Impactful trigger: The reason to begin doing what you know must be…
  • The Difference Between Knowing & Doing

    Alex Goldfayn
    31 Mar 2014 | 8:57 am
    What’s the difference between knowing what to do, and actually doing it? You probably know what to do already. For example, we know that testimonials and referrals are nearly guaranteed ways to grow our revenue, but do we ask for them enough? As a friend and colleague said recently, “If we all did what we know to be the right thing, we would all have perfect bodies.” And none of us would work too much! As the author, consultant and Harvard professor David Maister once said at a small, private workshop of his that I attended, “You all know what to do. The difference…
  • The Best Marketing Is Simple

    Alex Goldfayn
    24 Mar 2014 | 8:56 am
    If you request two referrals per week and hit a 50 percent success rate (which is less than the results my two-step referral process creates for clients), you’ll get 50 new, very warm prospects to have sales conversations with. Close a third of those, and you have 16 new customers, without doing very much work at all. Ask your staff to do the same, and you’ll leverage the power of exponential marketing effort and growth. If you add the “Did You Know” question (“did you know we also do x, y, or z?”) to most of your conversations with customers and…
  • The Revenue Myth

    Alex Goldfayn
    17 Mar 2014 | 8:02 am
    Here are some common misconceptions about revenue growth, and my take on each: Revenue growth depends on sales effort. Perhaps, in the end. But it’s marketing effort, which is one-to-many, that allows interested prospects to volunteer themselves to your sales function. If you want to grow sales quickly, ironically, marketing will get you there faster than sales alone. Revenue growth demands heavy time investment. Not true. My average client grows 15 to 20 percent in their first year with me. They execute simple activities in 15 minutes per day, or less. A carefully-conducted…

    Wyatt Earp’s heater just sold for $225,000 at an auction. Thought to be the firearm from his gunfight at O.K. Corral, the boom town itinerant’s boomstick was ultimately bought by a New Mexican telephone bidder. Along with his newly acquired antique Colt .45, the purchaser will also receive a signed letter from the manufacturer that confirms the gun was used by Earp during the Corral shootout – or at least that it coincides with the time Earp was involved in the shootout. Eh…close enough. Celebrity auction items are ever intriguing – and in more modern times, the possession…

My caddie told me to run, so I start running like a crazy guy. But the hornets were still there, so the other players told me to jump in the lake.” The attack came on the 14th hole at the Kuala Lumpur Country Club, the fifth of his round.

    It would not be a wrong assertion to call the LG G2 one of the very best device of the year 2013. the phone kind of brought LG back in to the mobile game and later in the year the Nexus 5 certainly helped them establish as a major brand once again. As a result, obviously every major launch by LG now will be scrutinized because people expect good devices with plenty of innovation from LG. Hence, the next flagship from LG i.e. the LG G3 has already been under a lot of spotlight even before it has been spotted or released.

It brings Photo Sphere feature to more devices and introduces Lens Blur. This new feature is similar to what HTC and Samsung have introduced in their new flagship devices. It lets you adjust the depth of field on your photos similar to what you can do with DSLRs. Of course, the effect isn’t as accurate as what you’d get on a professional camera but it’s nice to have that option and lets you play around with on your…

      Facebook’s incredible global reach and success appear to forestall challenges. In the long run, though, the social network’s growth and its frantic quest for new revenue sources raise questions. (First of two articles)     Casting doubt on Facebook’s future is like going to Rome and questioning the existence of God. It’s not the right venue to do so. First, you can’t argue with figures, they’re overwhelming. Each institution features about the same number of devotees: 1.2 billion across the world.

    Jean-Louis Gassée
    6 Apr 2014 | 1:24 pm
      So it was declared in the early days: Web apps will win over native apps. Why let the facts cloud an appealing theory? Marc Andreessen, the Netscape co-founder, is credited with many bold, visionary claimssuch as “Everyone Will Have the Web” (ca. 1992), “Web Businesses Will Live in the Cloud” (1999), “Everything Will Be Social” (2004, four years before joining Facebook’s Board), and “Software Will Eat the World” (2009).

      Last week, I attended the Newspaper Association of America’s MXC conference in Denver. We were to focus on the publishers’ use of data. A hot topic that sometimes becomes overly broad and leads to unrealistic expectations. Here are some key points I made.    For any digital publisher, relying on data is no longer an option nor a luxury. It has become a necessity. Each passing quarter confirms the demise of digital advertising: yields continues to fall, programmatic buying (most often operated by large third party players) takes over and continues to fuel deflation.

    Investing time in yourself is way better than investing money into something or someone else. When you invest in yourself and build valuable skill sets, you will never have to worry about unemployment again. If you were to strip Bill Gates of his assets and put him out on the street, he’d be back to earning a comfortable income in about a week. Why? Because he has tons of human capital. Sometimes the stress of life (bills, cleaning, children, etc.) can really start to take a toll on us, and it’s unfortunate.

  • 60 Spectacular Examples of Long Exposure Photography

    13 Apr 2014 | 10:15 pm
    Long exposure photography involves a long-duration shutter speed. Shutter speed is the length of time your camera’s shutter is open while taking a photo. While you have the shutter open, light hits the film or image sensor. Depending on how long you have your shutter open, the difference can have a dramatic impact on your photo. Let’s say you’re taking an image of a waterfall. A shutter speed of 1 second will be completely different from 1/800 of a second. A shutter speed of 1 second will look like the water is smoothly flowing, making it appear blurry. A shutter speed…

    For the last six months, there was a big push for ICD-10. However, the implementation of ICD-10 has now been delayed until October 1, 2015. The news is a big relief for many healthcare providers who were not ready to implement the new coding standards. On March 31, the US Senate approved H.R. 4302, the legislation which delays the ICD-10 implementation deadline by one year to October 1, 2015. The Senate voted 64-35 to pass the bill. President Barack Obama has signed into law “doc fix” legislation (HR 4302) to delay scheduled cuts to Medicare physician reimbursement rates. Along…
  • Researchers Have Created a Fitness Model to Predict Influenza for the Next Year

    11 Apr 2014 | 1:25 am
    The 2012-2013 flu season was quite harsh with 700 cases of flu reported at Boston and led to the declaration of public-health emergency there. The 2014 FluView report published by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) indicated that the influenza activity decreased during week 8 (February 16-22), but remained prominent in the United States. However, researchers from Columbia University and the University of Cologne figured out a formula to predict the evolution of influenza for the next year as per a study published in Nature, an international weekly journal of science.

    7 Apr 2014 | 10:39 pm
    As per the press release published in February 2014 by CDC, obesity prevalence among U.S. children aged 2 to 5 years dropped from about 14 percent in 2003-2004 to over 8 percent in 2011-2012 which points to a decline of 43 percent. The rates were computed on the basis of CDC’s National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES) data. The CDC director said that this report came upon the heels of previous CDC data that showed a significant decrease in obesity prevalence among low-income children in the age group 2 to 4 years, who had been participating in federal nutrition programs.
  • Crucial Documentation Elements for Coding Traumatic Fractures in ICD-10

    Natalie Tornese
    3 Apr 2014 | 11:27 pm
    Orthopedic practices face the challenge of inappropriate use of codes labeled ‘unspecified’ while coding traumatic fractures for ICD-10, since this medical coding system differentiates traumatic fractures from pathological fractures. The American Health Information Management Association (AHIMA) has already insisted that the healthcare practitioners should focus on their documentation to identify the gaps that need to be filled before the ICD-10 implementation on October 1, 2014. In such a scenario, it is quite imperative for orthopedic practices to understand the ICD-10…

    Over the last eight or nine years we have seen a very significant change take place out there in user-land – many have referred to it as the Consumerization of IT, whereby consumer technology has begun to impact the technology choices that the enterprise is making use of and in some cases being forced to use. The vast choice of mobile devices available and ease of use of such devices has radically changed the way in which we all interact with technology by moving it as something that most of the population use every day rather than it being something that you had to use in the office or…

    27 Mar 2014 | 12:12 pm
    There is nothing new about Open Source. We might like to think that it is a concept introduced in the last 50 years but in fact the origins of sharing knowledge date back to some of the oldest recordings of written works.  Doing some reading recently I came across the following text translated from a compilation of the ethical teachings and maxims (Pirkei Avot of the Rabbis (jewish teachers) written down almost 2000 years ago.

  • Toy Store (NaPoWriMo Day 4 Poem 5)

    4 Apr 2014 | 9:21 pm
    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…
  • Note on NaPoWriMo Poetry

    4 Apr 2014 | 9:19 pm
    So far, for some reason, most of my poems’ stanzas are being condensed into one long stanza; that isn’t intended; if you’d like to see them as they were written originally, they are on my wordpress too, at Hopefully I’ll have this issue sorted soon.
  • Star Wars Indoors (NaPoWriMo Day 4 Poem 3)

    4 Apr 2014 | 9:17 pm
    Today, the Oval Office is closed. 10 Downing Street has declared intergalactic war against Naboo (formerly known as the Republic of Cameroon). Every Prime Minister, President, Supreme Leader, Head of State, Chief Executive and Premier has been assigned a role. George Lucas stands by to oversee (though the rights now belong to Disney) the process of finalising the cast. Our world has become its own insular Death Star with rebel bases planted everywhere. But now, this metaphor has become literal for today only. Every PC springs into life, waiting for the signal. The first blaster is fired.
  • Spoke Central (NaPoWriMo Day 4 Poem 2)

    4 Apr 2014 | 9:15 pm
    The road hisses at tires grating    along its surface     digging in, setting grooves         against gravel in a street-play             knowing only this sound, this routine.                 Material meant for feet is now being grazed                 at by the ridges that pull themselves up, higher,                 lifted to breaking point. Vehicles of words             sift forwards to complain        at the curbside. But the cars,     vans, lorries, taxis (and on) keep on, keep going until the bikes lights cannot be seen.

  • Lessons Learned from the Google Flu Tracker—Why We Need More Than Just Data

    Mary Ludloff
    9 Apr 2014 | 7:15 pm
    By Marilyn Craig and Mary Ludloff We read an interesting paper and post about Google Flu Trends (GFT) and its foibles last week. The paper points out a couple of lessons that those of us living in the big data analytics world have learned the hard way but the dangers are worth revisiting as tools like ours (AnalyticsPBI for Azure) begin to move big data analytics into the mainstream of organizational practices. After all, our tool (and others like it) makes it easy and even fun for analytics junkies to use all those available zettabytes of data and answer questions that they’ve long…
  • Reporting, Analytics, and Big Data: A Continuous Feedback Loop to Drive Better Decision-Making

    Mary Ludloff
    2 Mar 2014 | 3:07 pm
    By Marilyn Craig A recent conversation with a client reminded me that no matter how crazy and exciting the Big Data world gets, it is still critical to understand what your goals are and where you are in the process of reaching those goals. Having a good foundation in “what’s important” is critical before you jump into the wild world of Big Analytics. For example, in big data (well, actually all data but I digress) “Reporting” and “Analytics” are very different functions. But I often find our customers and prospects grappling with how to distinguish one from the other and as a…
  • New Year (2014) Rumination: Death of privacy as we know it? Or inflection point signaling better things to come?

    Mary Ludloff
    11 Jan 2014 | 12:16 pm
    By Mary Ludloff I am, and always have been, a glass half-full kind of gal. In fact, way back in September 2011 when Terence and I published our book on Privacy and Big Data, I was far more optimistic than he was on the future of privacy—of course, it’s easy to sound optimistic when your co-author states that privacy is dead. (And yes, we are still working on our book update but we do have day jobs and a significant release in the works so it is slow going but going it is.) At that time, those in the “digital privacy know” characterized our book as a decent overview. Our intent at the…
  • Ways to Help the Philippines Recover

    Mary Ludloff
    14 Nov 2013 | 8:55 am
    By Mary Ludloff This past weekend the Philippines and surrounding areas were decimated by super typhoon Haiyan. The storm was estimated to have sustaining winds of 195 mph with winds gusts up to 235 mph. It is believed to be one of the strongest storms ever recorded. For those of us who have lived through typhoons and hurricanes (myself included) and felt the power of those storms, what we saw was nothing compared to what the Philippines endured. The death toll is now estimated to be above 10,000 and climbing and the devastation it left is likened to the destruction wrought by the 2004 Indian…

    By Terence Craig Drumroll please! After nearly a year of development work, we are about to offer early access to the first real-time/streaming analytics solution software appliance for the cloud – AnalyticsPBI for Azure.  There will be more forthcoming on the product launch but the new UI is so cool I had to show it off a bit. We will be following up with a formal launch and Early Access Program (EAP) signups in the next couple of weeks so watch this space and for details – the big data analytics market is about to change in a big way!

    Despite the SMAC (social, mobile, analytics, cloud) trends being in plain sight for the past half decade, and SaaS Customer Relationship Management (CRM) apps being available for well over a decade, the business value proposition of SaaS CRM apps has only just recently made progress.  First generation SaaS CRM apps enabled small and medium businesses [...]

    Evan Quinn

    For those that think that cloud is mainly about Amazon Web Services (AWS),, Google, IBM, Microsoft Azure, Rackspace, and a list of smaller SaaS and PaaS vendors, think again.  After several years of investment, in the form of their own R&D, M&A, re-educating their channel, and changing internal systems to better support the cloud-style [...]

    For as long as memory serves, the world’s leading independent data modeling tool has been ERwin.  Tracing its roots to 1988, part of the original LogicWorks line-up from the early and mid-1990s, sold to Platinum Technology, which was then acquired by CA Technologies (“CA”) in 1998, ERwin has been a leader if not the leader [...]

  • [MODIFIED] Buying a Digital Camera - Hidden Costs with Higher Megapixel Cameras

    17 Apr 2014 | 1:06 pm
    Higher-megapixel digital cameras may have hidden costs besides just the cost of the camera.High megapixel modern digital cameras generally allow one to take photos with much greater clarity than with cameras made in years past. Mistakes can be cropped out, larger photos can be printed, and more details can be made clearly visible, allowing one to take photos that more accurately represent a treasured memory. Modern cameras also may let you shoot HD video, offering even more enjoyment from your investment. However, before you plunk down money on a new high megapixel digital camera, recognize…

    Increase your privacy by making IrfanView forget the most recently accessed files and folders.For convenience, IrfanView offers an "Open Recent files" option in its "File" menu, providing you quick access to files you have opened lately. Also, when opening and saving files, IrfanView shows the most recently-access folders as well as commonly-accessed areas such as your Desktop, My Pictures, Favorites, etc.While these features may be useful if you frequently modify the same files, or images in a particular file location, having this information readily available may violate your privacy if…

When you get these addresses and need to view them on a map, would you rather A) copy and paste the addresses into a new browser tab running Google Maps, or B) have Gmail show the maps automatically inside the e-mail messages?If your answer is "B", there is a Google Labs extension that will do just that, and it's easy to set up:...Read more at MalekTips.

  • Microsoft will supposedly update Windows Phone 8.1 Preview to fix lingering issues, 80188309 error

    Daniel Rubino
    19 Apr 2014 | 9:34 am
    So far, the Preview for Developers program with Windows Phone 8.1 is going very well for Microsoft and those interested in getting an early look at the next OS. The preview, however, is not completely optimized for individual devices, and they still need new firmware to be complete. Once “official” updates rollout with OEM firmware, we expect things to be even better for consumers. Still, Microsoft is in a ‘pay attention to the customer’ mode, reacting very quickly to user feedback. That’s why we’re excited to hear, at least via Microsoft’s Community forums, that an update to…
  • Official WPCentral app updated, bringing transparent live tiles for everybody

    Jay Bennett
    19 Apr 2014 | 7:23 am
    We're excited to announce another patch to our official Windows Phone app today, which you can download right now here in the marketplace (Windows Phone 8 and Windows Phone 7). Whilst this version 4.4.18 is not the biggest update we've ever announced we suspect a fair few people will be quite happy. Following a flood of e-mails and messages complaining about our live tile's compatibility with the developer preview of Windows Phone 8.1 we've made sure that tile transparency now works correctly for both of our live tiles. The other headline change is that we've now made all features of the…
  • Cat Story, a feline adventure for Windows Phone 8

    George Ponder
    19 Apr 2014 | 6:57 am
    Cat Story is an odd little Windows Phone 8 game that sends you to an imaginary world filled with a wide range of interesting characters you must help build a new life. Game play is a mixture of time management, puzzle and scavenger hunt styles. The cast of characters in Cat Story have been shipwrecked on an uncharted island and a collection of quests to find all the survivors along with building a new community awaits. Cat Story is a well animated Windows Phone 8 with plenty of puzzling missions to tackle. The only concern is that game flow structure is a little loose and you often find…
  • How the Windows Phone 8.1 Xbox Games App changes your gaming experience

    Paul Acevedo
    19 Apr 2014 | 5:14 am
    In Windows Phone 8.1, the Xbox Games Hub is now a separate app that can be updated independently from the OS itself. It can’t be uninstalled, but the freedom to update separately should allow Microsoft to make changes to the app much more quickly than before. In fact, the app received its first update earlier today. Like many aspects of the Windows Phone 8.1 update, the Xbox Games app builds on the established pre-8.1 design and makes a few changes as well. Not all of these changes are for the better, and in some ways the app is a clear step back. Luckily there will surely be more updates…
  • CookAid, a DIY recipe app for Windows Phone 8

    George Ponder
    19 Apr 2014 | 5:11 am
    CookAid isn’t your run of the mill cooking app for Windows Phone 8. It falls in line with a “do-it-yourself” app in that you create your own recipes. Once created, you can generate shopping lists based on the ingredients needed for any of the culinary delights you’ve documented. Another feature that helps set CookAid apart from just creating a Word document for your recipes is the voice and audio support. If you are looking for a Windows Phone 8 app to generate tasty recipes, CookAid might not be for you. If you are looking for an app to preserve your Grandmother’s recipes, you may…

    It’s certainly been a case of “when it rains, it pours” for the poor London commuter recently. A tube strike, a concrete-flooded control room and many, many delays have resulted in workers forced to seek out alternative modes of transport to get them to and from the office.The recent 48-hour walkout, which was the result of an ongoing dispute between the TUC and London Underground bosses, has seen further disruption to companies that are hoping 2014 will be the year of the Great British economic revival.According to this recent infographic from Buzz Conferencing, train…
  • Habits You Need To Boost Your Emotional Intelligence

    Emotional intelligence (EI) is the ability to identify, assess, and control the emotions of oneself, of others, and of groups.  Our emotional intelligence — the way we manage emotions, both our own and those of others — can play a critical role in determining our happiness and success (Daniel Goleman).Habits of emotionally intelligent people1.

  • 5 Of The Most Creative Video Ads Worth Sharing

    Thomas Oppong
    16 Apr 2014 | 8:30 am
    Most people don’t pay attention to ads anymore. People now expect ads to actually speak to them—to connect to their hopes and dreams, to flip their thinking in unexpected ways and to reflect the world they would like to see around them. Advertising can offer this because, every once in a while, you will  find yourself cracking up or wanting more after watching a commercial that connects with you. These are some of the most creative ads worth sharing.1. A game of social thrones A rendition of the iconic opening titles of HBO’s Game of Thrones by Hootsuite.2. Hands by…

  • It’s a Small World After All | Strengthen Communications With Mobile

    Lloyd Marino
    16 Apr 2014 | 1:22 pm
    As a lifelong technologist I am amazed at how fast my industry is changing.  When I first got into the business, the cloud didn’t exist.  Nobody had ever conceived of the Bring Your Own Device (“BYOD”) idea, because devices didn’t really exist, either.  Mobile first wasn’t even a theory; it was grounds for psychiatric evaluation.  When we saw people on a car phone we thought they operated at the very top of the food chain.  Our old views on technology have changed radically in the past few decades, but I don’t think we’ve come far enough, fast enough. In Silicon Beach, we…
  • The Challenges of Milestone Funding

    David Ehrenberg
    15 Apr 2014 | 12:02 pm
    As all of our clients (and anyone who’s ever spoken to me!) knows, I am a huge, huge fan of milestone funding. That is, when you’re looking for investment capital, you first identify your milestones and then calculate how much capital you will need to raise in order to achieve these milestones. This is the best way to determine and articulate how much capital you will need. Investors like milestone funding as it makes clear how much money you will need and what you’re going to do with it (which inspires confidence that they will see a return on their investment). It also helps to keep…

    One of the biggest fears of a parent is to lose their child.  Interestingly, not many technology advancements have been made to conveniently track children.  Devices are either too expensive or just plain ridiculous (I’m looking at you, leash backpack).  After analyzing the market, the founders of hereO conceptualized a GPS-enabled watch for children that’s both stylish and tracks their position, giving parents that much-needed peace of mind. hereO decided to crowdfund the creation of their watch on IndieGoGo and successfully reacheded their goal.  The hereO is a small watch that…

  • Everything is Awesome…and LEGO is Living the Dream

    Ashley Ericksen
    31 Mar 2014 | 6:52 am
    I recently shared with a group of colleagues my new found love of LEGOs. My 6-year old son has served as my gateway back into the LEGO franchise. Constructing LEGO sets is now a family activity  – my son finds the pieces, I put together the LEGOs, my daughter turns the instruction pages and my husband steps in when things go wrong (i.e., a little person accidentally throws away a piece the size of a pin head). And then a few hours later my son takes it all apart to create something new, much to my chagrin (which explains why I liked the LEGOMovie so much).Given my renewed interest in…

  • Nutritional Panels Do a Body Good? The FDA Thinks So

    Maureen Evans
    17 Mar 2014 | 9:13 am
    The FDA recently announced their proposal to change the format of the Nutrition Facts label. This is the first change to the label originally designed and introduced in 1993. So, why the change after 20+ years? Well, it’s being proposed for a number of reasons, not the least of which is the link to the obesity epidemic in the United States. If a nutrition facts panel is clearer, easier to read, and more focused on the relevant information to equip consumers to make informed choices, the hope is that more and more people will use the nutrition facts label to guide their purchase decisions.

    With the on-going debacle about the Kangkung saga dying down, I thought it would be a good opportunity to write specifically about internet censorship and its implications to ordinary Malaysian citizens.

It’s quite important to differentiate between what REALLY happens and what we THINK happens, an in some cases the gulf is so large, that our perception of what happens borders on science-fiction. Take for example, our perception of the US Secret Service. Years of Hollywood movies have led us to believe that if anyone even thought about firing a weapon at…

A lot of people seem to think it depends where you are, if you’re in the US, it’s rao-ter, and if you’re in the UK it’s root-er. But the internet is global, it doesn’t care where you are, it doesn’t matter which culture you’re from, there can only be one answer to this question, and it must be location agnostic. So here’s the answer it’s RAO-TER, and here’s why. If you find it you get to name it In Science and Engineering…

  • Why you should be an 8 to 11 blogger?

    I have read in the book “Think and grow rich” that if people stood by a desire then they would have a different story to tell. All achievement in the world was done by people who burned all bridges never to come back, to do or to die. And they did. This very much applies to blogging, there are a lot of people who start blogging and after a few months abandon it because they are not getting the results that they want. They would try but little for the sake of trying. Today’s post is for all those who quit early. Remember that the darkest hours are just before the sun rises. Jon Morrow…

The recent damage hit the undersea cables lying in areas between Taiwan and Japan, and China and Korea. Latest reports say that repairs are expected to be completed by around…

(April 9, 2014) – Lifelong friends Mark Samuels and Josh Askin find themselves engaged in “potty talk” – as is usual since founding Nimbus Eco® in 2012. With a shared vision to create a world where paper no longer comes from trees and in doing so, help the world’s inhabitants lessen their impact on the environment and preserve the planet for future generations, the pair worked vigilantly to create a strong and soft alternative fiber paper.

  • Happy Earth Day (almost): American Mobile Phone Recycling on the Rise (infographic)

    Guest Post
    18 Apr 2014 | 8:00 am
    Mobile technology changes rapidly, creating an equally-rapid increase in the amount of electronic waste in our landfills. Although electronic waste is only 2% of total trash in landfills, phones, laptops, tablets, and other discarded devices are the source of 70% of heavy metals in landfills. The good news is, American participation in e-waste recycling seems to be increasing as well. Responsible e-waste recycler eCycle Best has released a report showing how much the company has recycled, with the help of American consumers, in the past year. Since Earth Day 2013, more than 34,000 gadgets…

    Goodreads, the popular social service that allows users to share what they are reading with friends, has just made it a lot easier for users to add new purchases from Amazon to their bookshelves. Since many people make their book purchases from Amazon (which actually started as a book-seller before becoming the eCommerce giant we all know and love today), this is a smart move for the social reading service.

    28 Mar 2014 | 3:55 am
    Today’s article is a quick tip on how to troubleshoot problems in Windows 8.1, which you will most definitely run into using Microsoft’s shiny new OS. However, most problems don’t require booting into safe mode or following a 10 step guide to fixing WiFi problems. Microsoft has also gotten smarter and included a lot of tools and help guides in the OS itself to diagnose and fix problems. I’ve found that teaching my clients how to use these built-in tools saves me a lot of time because they are able to fix problems in Windows 8.1 themselves. In this article, I’m…

Having a smartphone and not using apps is like having a computer and only using it to browse the Internet. If you have an iPhone, you’re also lucky because the Apple app store is still better than the Android app store in terms of number of apps and quality of apps, in my opinion. So what are the best free apps to download for your new iPhone right away? Well, there are a bunch! Obviously, everyone will have their preferences, so I’ll try to keep this list…

I tend to travel a lot and take my laptop with me everywhere I go, so I literally have over a hundred wireless networks stored on my Mac. This is great because I can easily connect to those wireless networks whenever I’m in range again, even if it’s 6 months later.

    If you’ve been using Windows 8 as your main PC, you have probably noticed the vastly upgraded performance and user interface when copying files. Finally, Microsoft decided to revamp some of the core functions of the OS, which makes using Windows 8 so much better than Windows 7…sometimes. Unfortunately, even with all the great new security and updates to core features, Windows 8 has been hampered by the dual desktop and Start Screen interfaces. I personally switched back to Windows 7 because I find the Start Screen and lack of the Start button frustrating. However, back on Windows…
  • 5 Handy Windows 8/8.1 Registry Tweaks

    Aseem Kishore
    17 Mar 2014 | 2:45 am
    Windows 8 and 8.1 are controversial because they changed the way Windows fundamentally worked and with every subsequent release, they backtrack halfway. For example, Windows 8.1 allowed users to boot directly to the desktop, but you had to manually change this setting yourself. In the next update coming soon called Windows 8.1 Update 1, any non-touch device will automatically boot to the desktop. They are also going to be adding a power button to the start screen so you don’t have to go to the Charms menu anymore. Anyway, it’s just a big mess of two worlds and it keeps changing…

    Miguel Leiva-Gomez

    If you own a smartphone, there’s a very great chance that it uses a chipset designed by ARM Holdings. Its architecture is uniquely tailored to handle the compact nature of mobile devices – while still providing a large amount of processing power. For years, this has been the standard, and everyone was happy with the results. Conventionally, ARM designed mobile processors while Intel was busy designing and building the latest desktop and laptop chips. However, the immense explosion of mobile devices on the market forced Intel to rethink its strategy and expand its horizons, creating…

    Telling science stories often involves explaining complex interactions between a cast of molecular “actors”, on a set smaller than the wavelength of light, so scientists are increasingly using animation to communicate such stories to the broader public. This is part of a global shift in how knowledge is communicated, reflected in the rapid rise of online video content – more than 1 billion people view videos on YouTube each month. It is important that key scientific discoveries and insights are communicated well in this new medium, especially when they can lead to improved health…

As of Tuesday, the search for the Malaysian Airlines Boeing 777 went underwater with the Bluefin-21 autonomous unmanned vehicle put into action. Already there have been problems on both days of operation, with the vehicle reaching its maximum operating depth of 4,500m. What data the search authorities were able to download from the vehicle’s first mission – which lasted only six hours – has been…

Back in such a big way that apparently many New York hipsters are paying north of US$8,000 for “facial hair transplants” to embellish their patchy beards. While the hipster subculture appears to be ground zero for the latest swerve toward beardedness, men who would not be seen dead in skinny jeans or thrift-shop cardigans are letting the whiskers grow in a way that hasn’t been fashionable for decades.

    How confident are you that the man you call dad is really your biological father? If you believe some of the most commonly-quoted figures, you could be forgiven for not being very confident at all. But how accurate are those figures? Questions of paternity are built over the deepest well of human insecurity, for children searching to know who they are, for fathers wanting to know whose kids they are raising and for mothers uncertain about the strength of the bonds holding their families together. I consulted on an episode of SBS’s Tales of the Unexpected documentary series, “Who’s Your…

    It's nearly a week since Microsoft ended support for Windows XP, but there are still around a quarter of Avast customers who plan on sticking with the old dog a little longer. What is perhaps more shocking is the revelation that over one fifth of those surveyed had no idea that support was coming to an end! For those living more on the cutting edge, good news came for Chrome users who found that their browser of choice gained support for Office Online. Microsoft may be leaving users of Windows XP out in the cold, but this is to be expected after so long. Users of Windows 8.1 who have opted to…

    If Goldilocks visited the bears' home and tried tablets instead of porridge and beds, Google Nexus 7 would be too small. Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro 12.1 would be too big. But Amazon Kindle Fire HDX 8.9 would be just right. This tweener tab is optimal size, packs bright breathtaking display, and is easily used for many hours with minimal eye, hand, or arm strain. While screen size and design concepts are little changed from the previous model, the HDX is thinner, lighter, higher-resolution, and well-matched to a bizarre-looking but beneficial case cover. Kindle Fire HDX 8.9 is a nearly perfect…

It's my own fault, I tend do focus mostly on technology news as world news is rather depressing. Not to mention, it is hard to find time to stay on top of it. Believe it or not, I even ignore weather reports as I prefer to be surprised. Google apparently feels my pain as it aims to make me relevant and sociable again with an updated Google Trends.

  • 3 alternative all’app Google Fotocamera per iPhone

    19 Apr 2014 | 7:34 am
    L’app Google Fotocamera e la caratteristica di sfocatura appena aggiunta, è stata un enorme successo e ha in generale avuto diffusa approvazione, ma ha anche dato nuove munizioni al dibattito preferito di Internet: iOS contro Android. Un certo numero di persone che hanno provato l’app, e l’hanno trovata davvero sorprendente, hanno anche sottolineato che iOS non offre nulla di simile. La risposta degli utenti iOS è stata allora quella di rilevare l’elevato numero di app di fotografia nell’App Store. Il fatto è che l’app Google Fotocamera è gratuita, e sebbene l’App…

Tra le varie nuove feature dovrebbe esserci anche il riconoscimento musicale. La nuova funzione dovrebbe esser resa disponibile grazie ad una partnership tra Apple e Shazam, la nota applicazione per device mobile che, appunto, è adibita al riconoscimento dei brani musicali. A lanciare in primis la notizia è stato Bloomberg. Stando a quanto riportato Apple sembrerebbe essere…

I ricercatori hanno anche fornito una dimostrazione della vulnerabilità attraverso un apposito video visualizzabile subito dopo il salto. Nel video viene mostrata la procedura mediante cui lo scanner per le impronte digitali del nuovo smartphone top di gamma di Samsung può essere aggirato.

  • Convert Imperva Performance Report CSV from Epoch Date to Human Readable

    Chris Mahns
    19 Apr 2014 | 7:05 am
    Imperva SecureSphere lets you download Performance Reports, which are dumped into a CSV file. Timestamps are in 13-digit unix epoch format, which aren't much fun to read. Also, every value in the CSV file is quoted, so if you want to do anything interesting with the data in Perl, you first need to get rid of all the quotes. The script below uses just two CPAN modules, Modern::Perl and Text::CSV, (note that it will not run without some additional re-work using Text::CSV_XS). Modern::Perl probably isn't strictly needed since I am not really using any newer Perl features but I always use it by…
  • On That "DevOps is Killing the Developer" Post

    Chris Mahns
    15 Apr 2014 | 9:23 pm
    DevOps is Different Things to Different People Sometimes, it seems like the worst term to come out the DevOps movement was "DevOps". After all these years, it still seems to have different meanings to different people. Case in point, an absolutely wonderful post recently from Jeff Knupp: How DevOps is Killing the Developer. If you haven't already done so, give it a read. In the article, Mr. Knupp provides what I personally thought was a pretty good definition of what "DevOps" is (or was?): "DevOps" is meant to denote a close collaboration and cross-pollination between what were previously…
  • iControl Perl - Authentication

    Chris Mahns
    3 Mar 2014 | 6:30 am
    Another thing that each of these iControl Perl scripts is going to need to do is to authenticate with the BigIP ltm. Since you are connecting using https, you are going to be using Basic Authentication. Below are a couple of options for setting authentication up. The first method, which seems to be the most popular, is to insert the userid and password into SOAP::Lite's get_basic_credentials method, which would get set prior to creating your soap request. For example: my $host = "the_bigip_hostname_or_ipaddr" my $port = "443"; my $uid = "some_user_id"; my $pwd = "some_password"; sub…
  • iControl Perl - User Accounts

    Chris Mahns
    24 Feb 2014 | 7:00 am
    Figuring out what kind of user account your iControl script is going to require is about as simple as figuring out what rights a regular user is going to need. If your script is simply echoing back statistics or pools or pool member stats or virtual server configurations, you don't need a user account that is going to have Administrative rights to your BigIP. You can get away with "Auditor" rights for these types of scripts. They also will not require any special terminal rights since they are going to be executed remotely. If your script is going to enable or disable nodes or pool members,…
  • iControl Perl - Getting Started

    Chris Mahns
    21 Feb 2014 | 6:45 pm
    After having the BigIP's in house for a while now and spending a bit of time writing iRules, I felt like it was time to give iControl a try. My intentions were noble: Kill two birds with one stone by learning iControl and Java. Something about it keeps drawing me back to Perl though. It is hard to explain but, for me, Perl is like a sketchpad. I can scribble away at a script until I have something that works. It might not be museum-worthy but it still looks good and conveys what I'm trying to do rather nicely. I like the sigils, too. Back when I was a kid, I was a huge comics fan and I loved…

    Software testing is often not understood properly. There are various misconceptions that appear and that are simply not correct. With this in mind, let us focus on those testing myths that are a lot more common than they should be.1. Software Testing Is BoringThe truth is those testers that do not have fun are actually doing something bad. The media is at fault for this misconception. Software testing is basically presented as being boring and monotonous. That is definitely not the case. Testing is really exciting and it brings in daily challenges.

  • Top 5 Ways To Know If Your Recruiter Sucks

    Joe Kinsella

    So today I met the single worst recruiter of my professional career. He works for a local company I think might be the Walmart of technical recruiting: all speed, no quality, and trying to make up for it with volume. The discussion led me to realize that this company could bring me the resume of Mark Zuckerberg or Biz Stone, and I’d have to pass on the assumption they must be idiots for working with them. But recruiting, like any profession, has a performance bell curve: the great ones are really good, the worst are really bad, and most are in between. When you are a candidate, a great…

    Since launching their first cloud offering in 2006, Amazon has paid surprisingly little attention to its competitors. While Marc Benioff was shouting “cloud computing” from the Salesforce mountain top in 2007, Amazon seemed not to have noticed. When Microsoft started aggressively marketing Azure in 2009, Amazon reacted as though it was in a distant market. When Rackspace sought to disrupt AWS with OpenStack in 2010, there wasn’t even a tremor in Seattle. And for those of us in Las Vegas for re:Invent last fall, the plastering of every city bus with IBM SmartCloud ads barely warranted an…

    My first experience managing a DevOps team came in 2010 when I took the VPE role at Sonian. While on the surface my new team looked like traditional system administrators, they shared three traits that were new to me in operations: a commitment to agile, a hybrid of software development & operations skills, and a focus on infrastructure as code. I instantly decided to embrace the emerging term DevOps, and supported the team on its way to some great successes (blogged about in a post called The Virtuous Cycle of DevOps). But four years later, I feel the need to say what no one else seems…
  • Cloud Computing’s iPhone Moment

    Joe Kinsella
    1 Apr 2014 | 1:42 pm

This moment came on March 25th in San Francisco when Google announced a massive price drop across its GCE platform. The announcement was matched the following day with an equivalent price reduction from Amazon, which went into effect today. The dual announcements may someday be recognized as a historical milestone: the cloud-equivalent of the release of the first iPhone for smartphones, the iPod for digital music players, or…

In those early days, my choices seemed to have little downside, and other than raising an occasional eyebrow at @dhh tweets, I was generally happy with Rails. My first doubts started to arise when I set out to hire a couple Rails engineers. To my surprise, while Boston has…

  • The Hypocrisy Of Sam Yagan & OkCupid

    Michael Arrington
    6 Apr 2014 | 9:54 am
    OkCupid played a major role in the successful effort to bring down Mozilla CEO Brendan Eich. On March 31 the company showed a message to all visitors using Mozilla’s Firefox browser. The message stated: “Mozilla’s new CEO, Brendan Eich, is an opponent of equal rights for gay couples. We would therefore prefer that our users not use Mozilla software to access OkCupid.” As we all know, Eich’s opposition to equal rights for gay couples stemmed from his $1,000 donation to support Proposition 8 in 2008.
