With the exception of Apple—who never has a booth here—the show has also been the launch point for a fair number of tablets.

  • President Obama Complains To China About Demanding Backdoors To Encryption... As His Administration Demands The Same Thing

    Mike Masnick
    3 Mar 2015 | 1:30 pm
    Back in January, we pointed out that just after US and EU law enforcement officials started freaking out about mobile encryption and demanding backdoors, that China was also saying that it wanted to require backdoors for itself in encrypted products. Now, President Obama claims he's upset about this, saying that he's spoken directly with China's President Xi Jinping about it: In an interview with Reuters, Obama said he was concerned about Beijing's plans for a far-reaching counterterrorism law that would require technology firms to hand over encryption keys, the passcodes that help protect…

  • Connecticut Town Takes Down Painting Including Image Of Mother Teresa Over Bogus Copyright Claim

    Timothy Geigner
    3 Mar 2015 | 11:32 am
    At this point, we probably don't need any more evidence that the emergence of publicity rights and its conflation with other forms of intellectual property, such as copyright, is a festering cancer in our culture that we'd do well to excise post-haste. Still, necessity isn't the mother of these stories that keep on a-coming anyway. The most recent example of how stupid this all has become is a small Connecticut town taking down a donated painting that includes an image of Mother Teresa over intellectual property concerns. More frustrating is how neutered the press covering the issue is in…

    As you may have heard, the latest political "scandal" involving a major Presidential contender comes via the NY Times reporting that when Hillary Clinton was Secretary of State, she refused to have a government email address, and conducted all her work via a personal email account. Hillary Rodham Clinton exclusively used a personal email account to conduct government business as secretary of state, State Department officials said, and may have violated federal requirements that officials’ correspondence be retained as part of the agency’s record. Mrs. Clinton did not have a government…

A 2012 pen register application obtained by the ACLU was previously sealed, but a motion to dismiss the evidence obtained by the device forced it out into the open. Kim Zetter at Wired notes that the application contains a rare admission that Stingray use disrupts cellphone service.

  • Bandit Ultra Trail Race 2015 – Volunteering and Photos O’ Plenty

    Jesse
    24 Feb 2015 | 8:24 am
    Last year I signed up for the Bandit Ultra Trail Race 30k and the days leading up to the race I got sicker and sicker. The day before the race I thought I could pull it off even though I had massive body aches and felt like death warmed over. I picked up my bib and shirt but by the time I got home I was a wreck and had to DNS the race. This year I went back to the Bandit a week after running the Sean O’ Brien Marathon but went to volunteer. If you were in the race, I was one of the guys along with JK who helped steer 50k, 30k and 15k runners around the first loop then onto the first…

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

    3 Jan 2015 | 5:38 pm
    Over the past year I’ve run over 800 miles and raced three half marathons, three challenging trail races over 11 miles long and in several 5ks. I also dedicated a lot of training time to increasing my climbing and logged over 24,000 feet in elevation gain. I trained on several mountain ranges in Southern California and feel like I can knock out a half marathon run at any time, so I did. It’s been a couple of weeks since running the Santa To The Sea Half Marathon in Oxnard on Dec. 18. I was excited to tackle the course and try to set a PR for the half. The flat as a pancake course…

    After tackling the XTERRA Point Mugu 18K Trail Race in October, I decided to do the Santa to the Sea Half Marathon in December next. But that left me with two months without races and I got impatient. I was looking through my timeline on the Strava site when I saw that tri-athlete Anthony Grey was in his last weeks of training for the Surfer’s Point Full Marathon. After that I signed up for the half marathon or the race to be held on Nov. 16, 2014. One of the features of the race is that when you cross the finish line you get a nice beer and some real tacos. Who can say no to tacos?

    After the last two weeks of abnormally hot weather on the Central Coast, things finally cooled down and my running heated up some at the 2014 XTERRA Point Mugu 18K trail race. The race took place today, October 12, 2014, at Point Mugu State Park in Malibu, just a few miles south of Oxnard. It’s been a year and a half since I first started my fitness journey and about a year since running became a big part of that trek. My first trail race was the XTERRA Malibu Creek 22K which was extremely challenging, so much so that I immediately signed up for the Bulldog 25K which pretty…

But sometimes having that ‘eye on the prize’ also gives you tunnel vision, making you less aware of anything else except reaching the goal. Unfortunately, this opens up opportunities for predatory marketing. For example, try shopping around for a cake. Now do the same for a wedding cake. Notice a… Continue reading Could audiophiles be the next consumer sucker target?

  • Huawei’s first ‘Watch’ runs Android Wear, looks stunning

    3 Mar 2015 | 7:23 am
    The aptly named Huawei Watch has just gone official at the 2015 Mobile World Congress, and believe it or not, it’s a gizmo to be reckoned with. No ifs, no buts, no “considering how cheap it might be”. It’s a legitimate contender for the title of best Android Wear device out and about, and it directly takes aim at the Apple Watch as well. What’s odd is the one feature Huawei disclosed leading up to the formal… Continue reading Huawei’s first ‘Watch’ runs Android Wear, looks stunning Related posts: LG unveils all-metal ‘luxury’ Watch Urbane with Android…
  • An Xperia Z3 for the masses? Say hello to Sony’s budget Xperia M4 Aqua

    Adrian Diaconescu
    3 Mar 2015 | 7:20 am
    Probably realizing it can no longer compete against the likes of Apple or Samsung in the extravagantly priced high-end mobile segment, and acknowledging Motorola’s entry-level low-cost dominance, Sony has decided to go after the in-between target audience. The Xperia M4 Aqua aims to “set the new mid-range standard”, and woo those who feel Moto G’s specs are a bit on the light side, and the Galaxy S5 or S6 are too darn expensive. Slapped with a €299 MSRP on the old continent,… Continue reading An Xperia Z3 for the masses? Say hello to Sony’s budget Xperia M4 Aqua Related…

  • Twitter's New Safety Rules: Hot Diggity or Hot Air?

    Richard Adhikari
    3 Mar 2015 | 12:42 pm
    Twitter last week announced actions to further protect users of its network -- but it left them vague. The company is rolling out unspecified improvements to its reporting process for content issues including impersonation, self-harm, and the sharing of private and confidential information, aka "doxing." It's also beginning to add new enforcement actions for use against accounts that violate its rules. However, in announcing the updates, Tina Bhatnagar, VP of user services, did not specify just what Twitter will do.

    A team of open source evangelists is working within the General Services Administration as part of a federal initiative for more transparent government use of technology. 18F, a development unit within the GSA, was established a year ago to tap into the success of the United Kingdom's Government Digital Services unit by pursuing a similar strategy. The unit is tasked with getting developers from Silicon Valley and the ranks of civic developers all over the country to change how federal technology gets done.

    3 Mar 2015 | 5:00 am
    President Barack Obama last week made good on his promise to establish a center for cybersecurity information gathered by agencies of the federal government. It's a laudable initiative -- if it works. The Cyber Threat Intelligence Integration Center will, according to a White House fact sheet, connect the dots regarding malicious foreign cyberthreats to the nation and cyberincidents affecting U.S. national interests. It will provide U.S. policymakers with an all-source analysis of threats.

    2 Mar 2015 | 2:24 pm
    Samsung on Monday announced its much-anticipated Galaxy S6 line at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Spain. In the S6, the strongly disliked plastic body of the Galaxy S5 is replaced with a combination of aluminum and Gorilla Glass. The Galaxy S6 and S6 edge both come in white, black and gold. Blue will be available only for the S6, while green will be available only for the S6 edge. The S6 and S6 edge are 6.8mm and 7mm thick respectively, and they weigh 4.8 and 4.6 ounces, respectively.

I mean, you've had whole weeks to enjoy the new phone you got last quarter, and now you'll hear about a bunch of incredibly wonderful stuff that will make that new phone look like your grandmother's favorite car -- you know, the one she fell in love with in the 1960s. Unfortunately, I'm not going to make things better. This week, I'm going to walk you through some of the more interesting things likely to be on display at the event.

  • A Failed Hacker Unmasking Exercise

    Bill Brenner
    10 Feb 2015 | 5:26 am
    “A ridiculous article which purports to show us the face of a hacker…” — Chris Wysopal, CTO of Veracode, in a tweet The ability of media outlets to create sophisticated images and graphics is light years beyond what it was when I was a young journalist in the 1990s. The technology has spawned a lot of cool projects, like this visual of a botnet from my former employer, CSOonline.com. The enhanced capability also leads to some truly ridiculous creations. For example, this Secure Thoughts piece on “hackers unmasked.” The writer asks, “Who are the…

    The following is cross-posted from the Security Uncorked blog… My friend Jennifer Minella is doing a series where she asks folks from the security community about three books that changed their lives. She kicks it off with me. In this series, I asked infosec professionals to name 3 books that changed their life. This entry includes picks from journalist, writer and podcaster Bill Brenner.

SiliconANGLE offers a decent analysis of the vulnerabilities and patches.

    Last week I wrote about the new anti-hacking laws President Obama plans to float in his State of the Union address and how the proposals are Draconian at best. I noted that it’s in our power to educate the masses and stop this thing before it becomes law. To that end, I have something to share with you. Derek Watson — better known in the security community as Blak Dayz (blakdayz) — posted the following call to action: Hackers. It’s time to UNITE.

    Last week, Pebble unveiled their new colour e-paper smartwatch, the Pebble Time, and the world went crazy. Today at Mobile World Congress, the roof was raised again for the announcement that the new watch will also come in a sophisticated steel version. As with the previous Pebble Steel, the Pebble Time Steel is a more stylish, premium version of the main Pebble watch. It comes in silver, black, and gold finishes, is water-resistant, and includes the new timeline, voice reply and colour e-paper features of the main Pebble Time. If you’ve already backed the Pebble Time on Kickstarter,…

  • Samsung Galaxy v Apple iPhone: Apple hits back at Samsung’s superior digital picture claims

    Seems like Apple isn’t taking the insults lying down. It has hit back at claims from Samsung that its latest Galaxy models, the S6 and S6 Edge, offer superior picture quality to the iPhone 6 by updating the Apple home page with an iPhone gallery. Clearly Apple boss Tim Cook was less than impressed by the claims made by Samsung that the new Galaxy products boast better picture quality than the iPhone as well as better video quality and much faster charging. Yesterday saw Apple’s entire home page redesigned to incorporate the gallery with Mashable claiming this is just part of a…

  • Is the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge to come in 64GB as standard in the UK?

    James O'Malley
    3 Mar 2015 | 6:54 am
    Could the S6 Edge come in its 64GB version as standard? That’s what seems to be implied by the Samsung UK website. According to SamMobile, Samsung UK’s website is only listing the S6 Edge as being available in 64GB and 128GB – with no 32GB (let alone 16GB) versions. The website lists the regular S6 being available in 32, 64 or 128GB. The speculation is that this could be to ensure the S6 Edge retails for a significantly higher price – perhaps to make the device seem like an elite thing to own. Or, of course, it could simply be a typo on the website. Samsung is yet to…

    Smartwatch maker Pebble has just announced a new version of its Pebble Time watch – only a week or so after announcing Pebble Time itself. The Pebble Time Steel is just like the Pebble Steel was to the original Pebble – a classier version, for people who want to look like a slick business type, whilst still getting Facebook notifications on their wrist. Don’t worry if you’ve already Kickstarted Pebble Time – apparently you’ll still get the opportunity to upgrade, whilst retaining your spot in the virtual queue. Pebble Time adds some exciting new features to…

    If you’re a 360 owner who still hasn’t upgraded to an Xbox One, then you might be worried about missing out on all of the free “Games with Gold” games for Xbox One. The good news is that this is that Microsoft has finally done something about it. According to a short clip posted by Larry “Major Nelson” Hryb, you can down use your 360 to choose to ‘buy’ Xbox One games. Obviously you’ll still need an Xbox One to play the games, but this will at least add the games to your Xbox account – so when you do finally get a One, you can…

    Over at MWC, Blackberry has just announced a new handset. Blackberry Leap is a sleek attempt at doing a fully touchscreen phone again. It has a 5″ display, 2800mAh battery and runs the Blackberry 10 OS. Whether it will make an impact remains to be seen, though could conceivably be attractive to business users who are more worried about security than having the latest apps. Also announce is the below – a good old-fashioned phone with a slide-out keyboard and (apparently) a curved screen. What a Surprise!

  • Is there a Samsung Galaxy S6 IRON MAN edition on the way?

    James O'Malley
    3 Mar 2015 | 12:53 am
    The above image has surfaced on social media this morning, purporting to show an Iron Man special edition of the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge – which would be the same phone, but with a lovely red and gold finish. Of course, we can’t verify that this is real – it could just be a fan photoshop or a hoax – but such a move would make sense as Samsung has a product placement deal in the forthcoming Avengers: Age of Ultron. We’ll let you know if Samsung says anything official.

    Ron Mertens
    2 Mar 2015 | 3:17 am
    Three new wearable devices with OLED displays were unveiled at the MWC tradeshow today. The most interesting one is Huawei's Watch - an Android Wear device that sports a 1.4" 400x400 (286 PPI) circular AMOLED display. It features a heart rate monitor and fitness tracking, six-axis motion sensor and a barometric sensor. Huawei's Watch will ship "in the middle of 2015".Another interesting device is HTC's Grip - a fitness tracker that was developed together with Under Armour. The wearable device sports a curved monochrome (white) PMOLED display, which seems to be Futaba's 1.4" 128x16 film OLED…

    Samsung officially announces their next flagship phone, the Galaxy S6 and its curved-display variant the Galaxy S6 Edge.

    "Mirror, mirror, on the wall, who's the most corrupt of them all?"There is this story from the Bible [John 8: 1-11], of a 'condemned' woman, about to be stoned as the 'rules' then required, being brought infront of Jesus. 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. If this incident had happened in the world we are living in today, not only would she have been stoned by the very people who had 'caught' her, each one of them; her captors would most likely also have been her past…

  • Unleash the Writer Within You Write Away

    Rachel Blom
    3 Mar 2015 | 11:00 am
    Some things in life require talent. Singing for instance, though watching some auditions not everybody agrees with me on that one. Competitive sports for sure, or playing an instrument well. But there are also things that can be taught. Like writing. Improving your writing skills is not dependent on talent. It helps of course if you have an innate sense of language, but it’s not a requirement for writing success. To unleash the writer within you, all you need is motivation, discipline, and some practical help. The Power of Writing Writing can be a powerful tool in your life. Words can…

    Church websites are coming a long way and with the help of a great guide by Jonathan Malm on Rethinking Your Church Website Strategy, your ministry has a great chance of creating something amazing for your digital audience. But 2015 has some challenges that have to be overcome to keep up with the competition and stay relevant online. Here are some of what I believe are the most important stats online: Americans spend 2.5 hours/day on mobile devices and 57% of people will not recommend someone if the website looks bad on a mobile device. Take note churches. 90% of the information for anything…

    I’m a visual learner.  While I can stumble my way through learning something new on my own, I learn best by watching others work and figuring out why they do things the way they do.  In that spirit, we at ChurchMag thought it would be a good idea to let you peer into the work habits of some of our writers with the hope that you’ll pick up some new ways to get things done.

  • Terrible at Design? Canva is for You

    I’m not the best person at design in the world. Sure I can take an okay photo and I know a thing or two about okay fonts, colors and where to place text on a screen, but that’s where my skills really end. Anything beyond simple editing is a huge issue for me and I’m sure that the majority of people reading this are the same. If you’re a professional designer you may well still find this interesting (and I’d love your more informed feedback) but this isn’t aimed at you. This is for the average person who knows a couple of things which look good but can’t make them. Maybe the…

    Content marketing is the intentional decision to create content that reaches readers in order to drive them back to your platform so you can engage them. That means for businesses, you write amazing articles to get people to then buy stuff from you. As churches, this is also available to you, but for the Gospel. Content marketing can come from blogs, social media, newsletters, podcasts, and more, but it focuses on making yourself the expert and creating an established audience.

  • The taming of magnetic vortices

    2 Mar 2015 | 9:00 pm
    (Technische Universitaet Muenchen) Magnetic vortex structures, so-called skyrmions, could in future store and process information very efficiently. They could also be the basis for high-frequency components. For the first time, a team of physicists succeeded in characterizing the electromagnetic properties of insulating, semiconducting and conducting skyrmion-materials and developed a unified theoretical description of their behavior. This lays the foundation for future electronic components with purpose-designed properties.

Early adopters of iOS 8 ran into various troubles, as did those early to download the first updates to that OS.To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here

  • Feds Admit Stingrays Can Disrupt Cell Service of Bystanders

    3 Mar 2015 | 3:03 pm
    I'm not saying that this IS the reason you always have bad cell reception....I'm just saying it COULD be the reason. But a court filing recently uncovered by the ACLU suggests another reason for the secrecy: the fact that stingrays can disrupt cellular service for any phone in their vicinity—not just targeted phones—as well as any other mobile devices that use the same cellular network for connectivity as the targeted phone.

    Ever wonder who is behind all those fake news stories on Facebook? Well, wonder no more, this list of the biggest offenders should help you from getting duped in the future. Ever since Facebook completed its evolution from a Friendster ripoff to an internet-transforming Elder God that can send millions of people to a single website at the twitch of an algorithm, a parasitic sub-genre of "satirical" news sources has latched onto the News Feed and thrived. Some of them lie to readers outright, with believable headlines that are only revealed as fabrications if you click through and read…

  • The Future of Social Business 2015

    10 Feb 2015 | 5:36 am
    Bjoern Negelmann and the Gartner Hype Curve of Social Business I wrote up 2 notes in our Agile Elephant Blog (over here and here) on the state of Social Business today, but here is a summary: In essence I buy Bjoern Negelmann's analysis at the Enterprise 2.0 Summit in Paris last week that it is in the Slough of Despond phase, and the only way is up (see picture above). This is confirmed in my view by the latest McKInsey report on the subfect, which essentially notes that it is here to stay, and more and more companies expect to expand its usage. I also think the fact that two "New New" memes…

    The British Army has resurrected the Chindits, one of the special force units used in WW2 to operate behind enemy lines - in their case to operate behind Japanese lines in Burma. It was formed by Brigadier Orde Wingate following a successful usage of Boer commando style tactics in the British/Commonwealth reconquest of Italian East Africa in 1940. The new Chindits are to fight behind the lines in the digital wars - Torygraph: ...the new unit's focus will be on "unconventional" non-lethal, non-military methods such as "shaping behaviours through the use of dynamic narratives", an Army…

    Google to stop making Glass "In present form" Google is to stop producing its wearable technology Google Glass in its present form, but is still committed to the idea of smart glasses, the company has said. The technology, which delivers news, messages and calls directly to a user’s field of view, has been on sale in the UK since June, and in the US since 2013. In a statement posted to its Google+ account, the company said the Glass team would move out of the “Google X” incubator labs and become a separate division. What the "New New" form will be is anybody's guess, but I'd suspect it…

    The next edition of Charlie Hebdo went on sale on Wednesday, and the production run was up from 60,000 to c 5 million - and rather than c 25% of 60,000 copies being remaindered, this time 5 million was probably not enough. (The money will be going to support the families of those killed, though there is a bit of a sour note starting with people trying to sell copies on eBay) If the aim of the shootings was to cow Hebdo and its satire it has been a complete failure so far, and also far any attempt to further inflame France (if anything the UK media seems more cowed than the French).

    We lost one of the "good guys" when Magistrate Judge John Facciola retired late last year. Facciola was a leading figure in the small -- but important -- "Magistrates' Revolt" that emerged in the wake of the Snowden leaks. Multiple times the government approached Facciola for a signature on overly-broad warrants seeking the entire contents of a phone or an email account, only to find the judge unwilling to help it pack for its fishing trip. More than once, the government was forced to rewrite its requests, and on one memorable occasion, it went "judge shopping" in hopes of obtaining the…

    Back in January, we pointed out that just after US and EU law enforcement officials started freaking out about mobile encryption and demanding backdoors, that China was also saying that it wanted to require backdoors for itself in encrypted products. Now, President Obama claims he's upset about this, saying that he's spoken directly with China's President Xi Jinping about it: In an interview with Reuters, Obama said he was concerned about Beijing's plans for a far-reaching counterterrorism law that would require technology firms to hand over encryption keys, the passcodes that help protect…

  • Connecticut Town Takes Down Painting Including Image Of Mother Teresa Over Bogus Copyright Claim

    Timothy Geigner
    3 Mar 2015 | 11:32 am
    At this point, we probably don't need any more evidence that the emergence of publicity rights and its conflation with other forms of intellectual property, such as copyright, is a festering cancer in our culture that we'd do well to excise post-haste. Still, necessity isn't the mother of these stories that keep on a-coming anyway. The most recent example of how stupid this all has become is a small Connecticut town taking down a donated painting that includes an image of Mother Teresa over intellectual property concerns. More frustrating is how neutered the press covering the issue is in…

    As you may have heard, the latest political "scandal" involving a major Presidential contender comes via the NY Times reporting that when Hillary Clinton was Secretary of State, she refused to have a government email address, and conducted all her work via a personal email account. Hillary Rodham Clinton exclusively used a personal email account to conduct government business as secretary of state, State Department officials said, and may have violated federal requirements that officials’ correspondence be retained as part of the agency’s record. Mrs. Clinton did not have a government…

In any case, if you like the things I tend to write and do and you want to motivate me to keep doing these things / do them more often, I set up a Patreon page where you can become a patron. Although, I must say, although I like the idea behind Patreon, I don’t like the execution much. It’s very inflexible. Why can’t I set up different types of patronage for different endeavors at different price points? Why is everything either recurring by month or recurring by thing created?

    Following the hugely successful campaign for the new Pebble Time, Pebble is back with two new products: smartstraps and a whole new Pebble, the Pebbble Time Steel. Let's start with smartstraps - an idea so simple it's almost silly that Google and Apple didn't come up with it first. Rather than trying to shove every sensor and doohickey into the Pebble Time, we decided to keep the watch simple and functional and give our incredible maker and developer community the opportunity to build from there. Up until now, if you wanted it all you had to compromise... On battery life, size, design or…

Banks have been caught by surprise by the level of fraud, and the Guardian understands that some are scrambling to ensure that better verification and checking systems are put in place to prevent the problem running out of control, with around two million Americans already using the system.

Beyond the psychological and emotional consequences of how cancer affected me, my family, and my relationships, it is undeniable and abundantly clear that cancer took its toll on me from a physical perspective. Last year, I decided to regain control of my body, my life habits, and my health.

Even calling it a game is too limiting. Minecraft became, with 100 million downloads and counting, a canvas for human expression. Players start out in an empty virtual space where they use Lego-like blocks and bricks (which they can actually “mine”) to build whatever they fancy, with the notable feature that other players can then interact with it.

But he did reveal that Google has been in contact with Verizon Wireless and AT&T about its plans - likely to head off any potential ugly conflict between Mountain View and the largest, most powerful…

    My first post about a “homepage takeover” ad was seven years ago when the Wall Street Journal (WSJ.com) and the New York Times (NYTimes.com) sites ran what I thought then (and still do) was a brilliant ad. (But I didn’t know the technique had a name like “homepage takeover.”) I couldn’t believe what I was seeing, however, as the ad didn’t just take over the page, it mingled with the page — demonstrating some witty interplay with the 2008-era conventions of a news website. While not as witty as the Apple example that interplayed with the web…

For that reason, I haven’t read any blog posts regarding the show. If this sounds like I’m borrowing the observation of others, I’m actually not (this time, at least).

While David Carr and I share a few professional friends and acquaintances, besides a couple of brief chats at SXSW functions or media conferences in New York (the kind that all blur together), I never knew him, knew him.

It is estimated that ~5% of website visitors are blocking ads (PDF report) and the situation could be far worse for websites that have a more tech-savvy audience. If you are…

  • Twitter CFO floats idea of newspaper-like 'daily edition'

    3 Mar 2015 | 1:50 pm
    Here’s an idea for the next version of Twitter that might crystallize the service’s value: The Twitter Daily Favorite. Okay, perhaps that won’t be the exact title. But a newspaper-themed form of Twitter that curates an assortment of newsy tweets to provide a summary of the goings-on could come as a future feature or as a separate app. People already check Twitter to see what’s happening. But news junkies who follow lots of accounts may have dozens if not hundreds of tweets to comb through every morning. Twitter thinks it can address this, partly by better organizing the content posted…

    26 Feb 2015 | 2:05 am
    Rich Julius, Principal Product Manager, Progress Easyl Rich Julius introduces 7 data preparation and data blending challenges that delay timely analytics. The driving force behind business intelligence and analytics is a need for information. Every day, we ask questions such as, “How good are we at converting leads?” Or, “Which of our marketing campaigns is the most successful?” Finding answers to these seemingly simple questions, however, is much easier said than done. The people asking the questions just want answers, and often don’t understand why it takes so long to get them.

    Data integration is a crucial part of every Big Data strategy. Data drives decisions. That piece of wisdom is often taken for granted, but businesses still seem to struggle with it. They continuously gather data, but rarely do they use it to its fullest potential. They track clicks on their websites and sensor readings from Internet of Things (IoT) devices that capture important customer buying behavior, geolocation data and other business-related information. Then they shovel it all into a data warehouse where web traffic and sales data and data from SaaS applications all have their own,…

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

Seven years ago, I didn’t believe inbox zero was ever possible. Today, I sell training modules on my inbox zero process.

  • Why Customer Service is the Future of Social Marketing

    Tamar Weinberg
    28 Oct 2014 | 5:30 am
    In 2006, social media was building steam in the United States. With the rise of Facebook’s popularity, the launch of Twitter, and the surge of influence from social news sites like Digg, social media looked to be a great breeding ground for marketers to make their mark. And make their marks they did. Digg was an incredibly powerful platform to drive traffic and pageviews to reasonably good content. Initially, the network really had the cream of the Internet crop on its frontpage, and the “Digg effect” would take websites down just like that. Visitors flocked to the homepage…

    Ever wonder how to manage the constant flux of customer service complaints (or praises) via social media? It requires a mindset of tuning into those communications, but because they come from so many different directions, it also requires a toolset. I won’t give it away, but after running a social media customer service department 100% singlehandledly and helping our customer base grow from about a half a million customers to over 1 million (through social media almost exclusively), I have a few tricks and tips up my sleeve. After years of trial and error, I’m fairly certain…

    Within the last 6 weeks, I’ve begun to understand why Facebook is such a narcissistic medium. If you’re sad, no one wants to deal with you. They may give you support, but if every post was sad and depressing, that trickles down to how you ultimately end up feeling. If you’re controversial, someone else will have another opinion and unfriend you. Happiness (without ego) is the only way to maintain good friendships, and usually, doesn’t impart negative judgments. Let’s dig into the second item there: controversy. As of late, there’s been a pretty big trend…

The screens are even glazed in sapphire crystal, as well as being encased in stainless steel, which clearly introduces it as more than just another wearable. What’s obviously different…

    1 Mar 2015 | 9:11 pm
    I’ve reviewed tripod mounts for smartphones before, however the good ones I’ve looked at in the past were fine as long as you only wanted to mount your smartphone horizontally. Horizontal mounting is desired by film makers for sure. There are times when you may want a vertical mount especially if you’re shooting stills or time lapse. For this I turned to the good folks over at Arkon (the makers of mounts for just about any device) and sure enough they had one that was exactly what I was looking for. It had to be able to rotate between horizontal and vertical orientation and…

    This is probably my third or forth Logitech keyboard for iPad and this one by far is the closest one to being perfect. The Logitech Type+ is a both a bluetooth keyboard and protective case. What makes this one better than the previous models is that Logitech made it even thinner so that it doesn’t add much bulk to your nice new iPad Air 2. The keyboard layout is also better. With the previous mode I was constantly hitting the  the home key (returning to the home screen) when trying to type a 1.

It’s hard to imagine that what started out as a product that most people at the time didn’t even understand why we’d need it, would become such a phenomenon that entire industries have been built upon. I of course like many of you begin to think back to the first version of Photoshop that I ever used. For me it was Photoshop 2.0.

Now look at the remaining companies — the 80-85% of your customers who are not the biggest revenue generators. How many of them can graduate into your “largest customers” category? Identify them. List them. Write down the name of the human being that buys from you next to each company. If Excel is your preference do it there. These people are your HPSCs: your High-Potential Small Customers.

Because if it’s the latter, your happiest customers are your greatest source of revenue! Unhappy customers bring us their issues on a daily basis. But the happy ones rarely call to compliment. They stay quiet. Your good work is expected, and taken for granted. We must be proactive about reaching out to our happy customers.

What industries do you work in? How hard do you try to move beyond your “sweet spot” customer. What kinds of customers can you sell to? Can you expand your horizons there?

But we must constantly be opening new opportunities. We must consistently create new opportunities for our sales function. If all you do is close, eventually, you’re walled in, trapped, with no opportunities (for growth) in sight. Your pipeline will run dry. To open, we must systematically communicate our value to people who can buy it. That’s all marketing is. To open, to grow, me must market.   The…

As Google says, the new experience makes it easier for you to keep track of the people you know and get the info you need, fast. A quick click on the preview link pretty much confirmed that for me. Whereas in the past, my Contacts have always been kind of a jumbled mess comprised largely of people I rarely interact with, the new experience puts the people I actually know and care about front and…

    Gionee Mobiles is set to announce their latest flagship device, the S7 in Barcelona today. This will be the first time that the company hosts a major keynote at MWC so there is a lot of excitement around the device. After coming up with the S5.1 and the S5.5, the S7 is expected to be slightly beefier than the previous two devices. It does look like that Gionee has realised the importance of having good specifications over device that looks just sexy and hence the move to a slightly heavier exterior with internals better done. According to the leaks in the media, the device is expected to…

The two devices were leaked out very thoroughly over the internet in the build up campaign, intentionally or unintentionally from the company itself. However, unlike the last couple of Samsung Galaxy devices, the Galaxy S6 is an aesthetically beautiful device, which has received a lot of positive feedback from the media which is on ground having hands-on time with the phone.

    HTC has announced the HTC M9 in Barcelona. As expected and seen through in several of the leaked images, the device is exactly as we had envisaged. It is not drastically different from what we have seen in the HTC M8 though there are a fair few things that have been changed around for better or for the worse. For the worse definitely cause HTC has done away with the dual lens setup on the back and gone with a singular camera, so for those who really liked the lens blur effect would be extremely disappointed. Other than that, the power button has been moved to the right side of the device and…

    The first thing that comes to mind when you read wireless charging is that of a phone magically charging the moment you’re in a particular zone; just like Wi-Fi. Sadly that’s not how wireless charging works in the present day. You need a charging base on which you need to place a wireless charging compatible phone and it starts charging. It works on the principle of inductive charging — where in the charging base and the phone has coils to transmit energy without having to connect any cable to the phone. Quite a lot of manufacturers attempted to crack the market and introduce…

    By now, it’s clear: Cloud computing isn’t going anywhere. In fact, recent surveys indicate that just about 90 percent of all companies are using some form of cloud service, most often for storage. However, some small businesses are still hesitant to make the leap to the cloud, for various reasons. Security concerns are at the forefront of most entrepreneur’s minds; the consequences of a security breach can be devastating to a small business, so many simply opt to keep all functions in-house.

    How often have you wished there was an easy way to watch all the favorite movies on DVDs on your iPhones and iPads? Despite of so many DVD rippers available today in the market, most of them are often too clumsy or take too long time to convert DVDs to supported video formats. Even if you manage to save some of those DVDs on to your hard drive (which will not be an easy task, given that most of the movies come in copy-protected DVDs now-a-days), playing them on your iOS devices via iTunes may not be as easy because of the number of tracks, sub-title files and folder structure of the DVD.

Whether or not such a delivery service pans out is less important than the buzz (no pun intended) it created – as a kickstart for the drone industry.

Canadian retail disruptor changeRoom - in concert with tech innovator Nymi and MasterCard - might be the key to further connecting online shoppers with physical retail. Today retail experts point to webrooming, an emerging retail trend combining online and in-store shopping, as an example of how the physical and online retails worlds collide.

Sources for French outlet 01net claim that Google is “preparing to launch” Android Wear app on iOS as a third-party app. If this were true, that would need a bit more work since this won’t be an Android-to-Android connection. But again, no one at Mountain View is confirming nor outright denying the rumour. We just have to wait and see if you can head out and buy that new Huawei or LG smartwatch for yourself.

    Gionee is known to come up with some really stylish and slim smartphones for the ones who need a phone to flaunt and just a while ago, they released the much anticipated Gionee Elife S7 at Mobile World Congress 2015. Lots of official teasers seemed to indicate something ‘big’ as in a huge screen would be coming up but au contraire! Its another phone around the 5″ range. Let’s run you by the specs quickly before we start talking more. Key Features: 5.2″ Super AMOLED Full HD (1080p) with 424 PPI 139.8 mm x 67.4 mm x 5.5 mm MediaTek MTK 6752, 64-bit 1.7GHz…

    Frédéric Filloux
    22 Feb 2015 | 11:39 am
      by Frédéric Filloux My last column about new valuations in digital media triggered an abundance of comments. Here are my responses and additions to the discussion.  The most revealing part of argument used by those who tweeted (800 of them), commented or emailed me, is how many wished things to remain simple and segregated: legacy vs. native media, content producers vs. service providers, ancestral performances indicators and, of course, the self-granted permission to a certain category of people to decide what is worthy. Too bad for cartesian minds and simplifiers, the digital…

      by Jean-Louis Gassée [Update appended] Beside free publicity, and huge amounts of it, the putative Apple Car raises interesting questions about car manufacturing, the future of automobiles, and the part that an interloper such as Apple could play in this century-old industry.  The volume of comments and Twitter traffic in reaction to last week’s Monday Note, The Fantastic Apple Car, was just one small rivulet in this week’s gusher of rumors, jokes, and proclamations about Apple becoming a car manufacturer. Bloomberg takes the car as fait accompli, telling us that “Apple…is…

    8 Feb 2015 | 9:56 am
      by Jean-Louis Gassée Apple’s most recent quarterly numbers broke all sorts of records and, as we shall see, a number of laws. Apple just released its numbers for the quarter ending last December, the first quarter of its 2015 Fiscal Year. The figures are astonishing: iPhones:  Apple sold 74.5M, + 57% over last year’s same quarter. iPhone revenue was $51.2B, + 57%. That’s enough iPhones for 1% of the world population, 9.4 iPhones for every second of the past quarter.

    Most folks have their own computers these days. Between smartphones, tablets, laptops, and desktops, you probably have Internet access pretty much all the time. However, sometimes you’ll find yourself using a computer that’s not yours – perhaps you’re visiting a friend, using public resources at the library, or your work requires you to log into different systems all day.

  • The BASIC Guide to GAMBAS: All You Need To Know

    Matthew Hughes

    If you owned a computer in the 80s, you almost certainly knew BASIC. Each microcomputer came with their own spin on the language, and it wasn’t uncommon to while away a Saturday afternoon copying code from a magazine line by line. The end product would almost always be some kind of game, or an interesting visual effect. It inspired an entire generation of coders. But BASIC died around the same time the Commodore 64 did, and it wasn’t really replaced. As Windows came on to the scene, it was no longer required to write code in order to use a computer....Read the full article: The…

Improper payments include incorrect payment amounts, miscoding, non-covered services including those that are not reasonable and necessary, and duplicate services.

It’s important to know the facts. Many young adults are putting off buying health insurance through the exchange and think they would be better off paying the penalty of $95 a year or 1% of their income (whichever is higher). With plans on state-based exchanges costing as much as $200 to $300, young people also feel that it would be better to sign up for Obamacare only when they have a serious health…

  • Radioshack Name for Sale, Starting at $20 Million

    27 Feb 2015 | 12:23 pm
    Feel like owning RadioShack? Not the business or its assets, but the RadioShack name. If you're interested, you just have to pony up at least $20 million, which is the cost of an opening bid for those looking to buy the ex-electronics retailer's moniker. OK, so it's doubtful that you have that much spare change sitting around, and you […]

    Mike Patchett
    3 Mar 2015 | 7:45 am
    “Austerity” is now a way of life in the Public Sector. In the United Kingdom we have lived through five years of the process so far and whatever the result of the upcoming General Election, whichever party is in Government or Coalition, the concept of expecting more from Public Services for less will continue well into the next Parliament. Yet after five years of budget reductions, most of the easy options for making cuts have been exercised by those tasked with delivery of services. When faced with a budget cut often it is a process of what can be seen can be cut, unfortunately the most…

  • 5 things to fix before you consider Windows 10

    Shawn Cardamon

    Well, we talked about the five reasons not to migrate to Windows 8, but instead to skip straight to Windows 10, and since you believe that was 100% solid, let us talk now about what you need to do in order to be prepared for that jump to diez.  Or, as we like to call it within the CM community, the process of “please, oh please, do not let Windows 7 happen to me again.” In all seriousness, Windows 7 was tough for everyone, and I mean everyone within an enterprise IT environment.  This OS migration effort was the hardest hitting to date and is one of those topics where no matter who is…
  • 5 Reasons to skip Windows 8 and go direct to Windows 10

    23 Feb 2015 | 6:22 am
    Right down to business, let’s talk about the top five reasons I personally see to skip Windows 8, and go direct to Windows 10. Through a ton of exposure to numerous IT firms during my time as a ConfigMgr admin and Solutions Engineer, I see the path ahead and it is not Windows 8 for most organizations. This advice should be taken in context of course, as this mindset applies to the greater audience of enterprise IT and not your trendy tech firm stocked with people who build their own PCs on a regular basis. Oh, and if you are reading this and asking yourself the question “is 1E on Windows…

    Originally posted on: http://geekswithblogs.net/hroggero/archive/2015/03/03/backing-up-azure-blobs.aspxAs customers adopt the Microsoft Azure platform, the need to backup Azure Blobs is becoming increasingly important. That’s because Azure Blobs are used by both the Platform as a Service (PaaS) and Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) components of Microsoft Azure. In fact, Azure Blobs are also becoming more popular with local software applications that need a central location to store configuration information and application logs. Since Blobs are a form of data, there is a need to back them…

    On February 3, Slice of MIT linked to an article on businessinsider.com that listed the 21 “most successful” MIT alumni.

  • Big photos - size matters?

    6 Feb 2015 | 8:59 pm
    You've probably noticed that I use some pretty big photos on each blog post here. That should mean big file sizes - but it doesn't have to. When you take a high resolution digital photo and simply resize it for your web site you are NOT compressing it. Or if you are, then you are probably not compressing it as much as you could be. Lets take the photo on this post as an example. The original photo from http://unsplash.com is 720kb and 2511 × 1671 pixels. I only need an image that is 790 x 420 so I will use Preview on my mac to resize and crop it. Now the image is only 85kb. That's great but…
  • Increase the screen resolution on your Macbook

    6 Feb 2015 | 2:48 pm
    I use a macbook air as my only computer and I do not have an external display. This means that my screen has a maximum resolution of 1440 x 900. For those of you with multiple monitor setups you might think it is odd but it works for me and forces me to concentrate on the task at hand (or it would if I didn't have a tablet and phone as well). Visiting a friend over xmas I connected the laptop to a large HD screen to watch a movie. I was surprised to see that the resolution on the laptop also increased. How was that possible? How was my laptop displaying at a higher resolution when connected…

  • Front End Module Editing in Joomla 3.4

    30 Jan 2015 | 10:22 am
    In all the years that I have used Joomla I have never really seen the need for front end editing. Why bother? I could just do everything in the admin. There were always too many things that I couldn't do on the front end that meant I was forever switching between the two. Editing your site can be hard I get it that people don't want to be bothered with the complex interface of the administrator and prefer to edit their content in place. This has been possible for a very long time in Joomla for content items but not for modules. So you still needed to switch to the admin interface to edit…

That's why it is called "frequently asked questions" - makes sense doesn't it. NO! Think about it Why is everyone asking those questions?

    24 Feb 2015 | 7:19 pm
    A friend of mine’s son recently returned from an extended absence which basically removed him from nearly all aspects of technology, including the Internet, for a bit longer than 5 years. Upon return, observing him restore his awareness of technologies and absorb all things new developed over the past 5 years was both exciting and moving. To be fair, the guy grew up in an Internet world, with access to online resources including Facebook, Twitter, and other social applications. The interesting part of his re-introduction to the “wired” world was watching the comprehension flashes he…

    IT professionals continue to debate the benefits of standardization versus the benefits of innovation, and the potential of standards inhibiting engineer and software developer ability to develop creative solutions to business opportunities and challenges.  At the Open Group Conference in San Diego last week (3~5 February) the topic of  standards and innovation popped up not only in presentations, but also in sidebar conversations surrounding the conference venue.

    Carrier hotels are an integral part of global communications infrastructure.  The carrier hotel serves a vital function, specifically the role of a common point of interconnection between facility-based (physical cable in either terrestrial, submarine, or satellite networks) carriers, networks, content delivery networks (CDNs), Internet Service Providers (ISPs), and even private or government networks and hosting companies. In some locations, such as the One Wilshire Building in Los Angeles, or 60 Hudson in New York, several hundred carriers and service providers may interconnect physically…

    26 Jan 2015 | 3:28 pm
    Risk management has been around for a long time.  Financial managers run risk assessments for nearly all business models, and the idea of risk carries nearly as many definitions as the Internet.  However, for IT managers and IT professionals, risk management still frequently takes a far lower priority that other operations  and support activities. For IT managers a good, simple definition for RISK may be from the Open FAIR model which states: “Risk is defined as the probable frequency and magnitude of future loss”   Risk management should follow a structured process acknowledging…

    By: Mary Ludloff and Terence Craig We’ve been promising an update to our book, Privacy and Big Data, since the just pre- and mostly post-Snowden era. When we proposed and wrote the book it was to fill a void. At the time, there was a lack of mainstream attention to the issues of privacy by the media and a lack of understanding of the issues and implications we all face in the digital world. As tech veterans of long standing, we have seen our world transformed for better and for worse by our industry. Much of the “worst” we chronicled in our book and at the time its release, many…

    A few weeks ago, I briefed with a new company called PFP Cybersecurity, also known as Power Fingerprinting, Inc., and was so intrigued by the concept alone that I wrote a Vendor to Watch about them. They officially launched on January 26, , and currently their claim to fame is their physics-based scanning technology which monitors the electromagnetic frequency (EMF) emanations of a microchip while operating. It then compares those readings to either a previous reading or to an established manufacturer’s baseline to determine the state of the chip. There are numerous uses for the technology…
  • Redefining WAN in Light of Cloud

    Tracy Corbo
    17 Feb 2015 | 6:32 am
    Thanks in large part to investor-driven demand for constant double-digit growth, the WAN optimization market has taken a substantial beating, and as a result the term “WAN optimization” has become something of a lament. Vendors looking to distance themselves from the term have latched onto the “software-defined” bandwagon, and the result is “SDN WAN” or “SD WAN.” However, the need for WAN optimization is not going away; in fact, it is only going to increase because the WAN is a critical component of cloud-based deployment models. Cloud is not a magic fix for all that ails IT.

    Have you ever tried to create a major slide presentation on a tablet? Or edit a large spreadsheet? Or write a long document? Probably not. While it’s certainly possible to perform more substantial business tasks on a tablet, the small screen real estate and limited system resources (e.g., processing speed, memory, graphic support, etc.) are typically insufficient in current tablet form factors. However, carrying a laptop around with you everywhere you go just so you can access email is not very practical either. The reality is that we live in a multi-device world where the average worker…

    Since the advent of Web 2.0, social interaction is king. Now, almost every single mobile app works in the environment of its users exchanging ideas through content authoring, comments, likes and shares. Even the simplest and most “personal” of them, like personal planners, address books and to-do lists, enable users to put their data in the cloud, share them with others and access them using a myriad of devices and interfaces. The bottom line is that every one of them needs a back-end and an API to talk to. All projects are executed through tight cooperation between back-end…

    18 Dec 2014 | 1:59 am
    For many reasons we have grown to love our ORMs. We enjoy the simplicity of Entity Framework, the way it separates us from the old much unappreciated world of stored procedures and the T-SQL. We also love the nHibernate for its maturity and the amount of features it provides. What they give us is simplicity and a neat level of abstraction over the database access code which allows us to develop quicker, all for free. But we all know that if someone gives us something for free, there must be a catch. Well, nothing is free in this world. In this case we get tons of unnecessary overhead. Even…

    Well, it had to happen! Once again, I am being paid to subvert the status quo. As some of the fourteen million spam bots and half-dozen Russian hackers that still read my blog know, my very first paid work as a writer was for a subversive publication that may have resulted in the collapse of the then still semi-apartheid government of South Africa. Yes, gentle readers, for in that publication, there were pictures of women. Scantily clad ones, that usually bared their breasts! (Yes! Yes, gasp!

    I have been thinking of doing this for a long time. Actually I plan to extend it to 100 books that I think are a good foundation for anyone to read in order to have a more rounded, more able, and most of all a more independent way of thinking than just unconsciously going along with the greater reactive biomass that is carefully being shaped by TV and other mass media, including this here Internet. Just to be clear then, my criteria for whether a book makes it into my top 100 is primarily based on the practical, real effect it has on you awakening from the dreary, matrix-like slumber induced…

    3 Mar 2015 | 9:13 am
    I often write about the best strategies for startup fundraising or how to manage startup financing and optimize for growth. Equally important, is an area many startup founders don’t always prioritize: choosing the right service providers and understanding the value they can bring, especially to early-stage startups. The startup ecosystem is not just made up of entrepreneurs and investors; it also includes lawyers, bankers, HR and payroll providers as well as financial services providers. These service providers do more than provide a service; they are partners and important players within…

    Without a doubt, when looking to technology, one can see it has changed the way we do business. Even thinking back 20 years, you can see that businesses have changed, for the better. While true, many entrepreneurs don’t take advantage of this or understand why technology is so crucial to helping one achieve higher profits and find more clients. With this in mind, it’s wise to consider technology’s role in supply chains, and here are five things to think about with regards to this important subject.

    You know the steps to startup fundraising: Target potential investors Get warm introductions Set up tons of meetings Get serious with a handful of prospects Make your pitch Negotiate your terms Sign term sheets Voila, you’re funded! While this seems straightforward, in reality the process is much more fraught. In the best case, getting funded can take months, and in the worst, you might end your quest without a single signed term sheet. Oh, and have I mentioned that it’s a full-time job? Physical endurance is one thing, but how do you prepare yourself for the mental and emotional toll?

A recent study of IT professionals reported that over 30% of their workplace environment is virtualized. We’ve even created an acronym for these kinds of services: software as a service (SAAS). Usually, a company provides subscription based access to subscribers allowing these subscribers to use software in the cloud. The software itself is hosted by a third party, SAAS service provider, which is responsible for maintaining software or hardware associated with the application. Overall, there…

    Imagine a world in which you pay for everything you buy with just a smartphone. That dress you see in the store window, shoes to match, a delicious meal at the new restaurant in town, a cup of coffee on your way to work, and even groceries at the local supermarket. All paid for using mobile payments apps on your smartphone. No more pulling credit or debit cards out of your wallet. In fact, you don’t even carry a wallet any more. It’s just you and your phone.

    When I was a kid, I thought by 2015 we would be flying around in cars like The Jetsons.  It appears we aren’t there just yet, despite my wish for us to be flying around by now!  However, we have come a long way in powering vehicles. We have all seen many new hybrids and electric vehicle alternatives come out from a variety of manufactures and certainly seen their acceptance grow, especially as we saw gas prices increase over the last five years. This is coupled with the growing desire of the general public to be more “green.”  But, is the future of automotive electric or hydrogen?

    Our overnight idea screening tool, Ideas Overnight, has become a big hit with our clients. Since launching in March of 2014, over 30 clients in the US have used the tool to expedite and improve their innovation process. Interestingly, we still receive the occasional question of whether or not idea screening is a “validated” tool. Clients who aren’t quantitatively screening their ideas want to know whether or not idea screening can predict later concept scores (and, by extension, success in the market). I’ll admit that I have often taken this for granted as the typical non-quantitative…

    In my day-to-day work focusing on product development and product testing related issues, it’s always interesting to see that some of the seemingly most basic questions are the ones that are the most difficult. One of the struggles I’ve witnessed most recently is the struggle to identify the “right” competitive benchmark, whether the objective is to innovate or renovate. There are numerous trends impacting or fundamentally changing our ability to identify that one key competitor. I was reminded of this when I was reading about McDonald’s Q3 performance just last week, which saw a…

    The 10inch Quantum Q-Wave is an Android tablet from BDL, one of the established IT players in the region.

    Apple Pay is a revolutionary payment system. I have used it a couple of times since it has launched and just love the way it has been implemented. It works just as it was shown in the keynote. You basically bring your iPhone close to the payment terminal which is waiting for payment and your cards stored in the passbook will automagically appear on your screen. If you have your finger already on the Touch ID, it would just go ahead and authorize the payment with your default card. The little chime and a subtle vibration in addition to the short animation on the screen let you know that the…

    Calling a business has never been fun. Between waiting for someone to pick up, wondering if you’ll be stuck on hold, dealing with automated menus, and finally getting a live person only to find out they can’t answer your question, what should be a two minute proposition often takes more like 20. And in the age of text messaging, even two minutes isn’t short. Hold music may be a thing of the past, however. Google appears to be working on taking the phone call out of contacting your local business, or at least giving you the option to use an online chat function instead.
  • Class Action Lawsuit Against Google Thrown Out

    Andre Sólo
    2 Mar 2015 | 8:41 am
    If Google requires mobile device makers to use it as their default search engine, does it have an unfair monopoly on the market? The answer is no, according to a decision last week by a US District Court judge. Or rather—to be more accurate–the judge decided there’s no proof the search engine’s practices have caused harm. What’s in a MADA? The case started with Google’s MADA, or Mobile Application Distribution Agreement. This is the set of terms and conditions it requires of hardware manufacturers making devices that use the Android operating system.

You never know how reliable anything you find is, but along the way you manage to convince yourself you have everything from dengue fever to diphtheria.

That’s the idea behind a new use of the knowledge graph which is already appearing in search results. Doctor-Approved Knowledge Panel Under the new…

  • AdWords’ New Strategy: Call Me Maybe?

    Andre Sólo
    24 Feb 2015 | 9:08 am
    Would you be willing to pay for an online ad that doesn’t take customers to your website? For many businesses the answer is apparently “yes,” at least if that ad puts them in touch with you by phone instead. That’s the idea behind the newest type of Google AdWords ad, the “call-only” ad. Call-only ads appear in mobile search results. They look like normal ads, but tapping on them doesn’t take the user to your website. Instead it shows your number and prompts them to tap to call you. In other words, it funnels toward phone instead of web.

    Even though more people are expected to start using wearable devices in the next five years, Cisco's Global Mobile Data Traffic Forecast says the global landscape in 2019 will look very similar to how it looks today — just much larger. There were 108 million wearables in the world last year, and that number is expected to grow to 578 million by 2019. Based on Cisco data charted for us by BI Intelligence, North America and Asia are both expected to represent roughly 30% of global wearable device connections, with devices and connections in aggregate expected to grow to 11.5 billion by 2019,…

    A recent interview with Amazon Web Services’ chieftain Andy Jassy repeatedly touts the “trillion dollar opportunity” associated with the inexorable transition of enterprise IT to the cloud. Perhaps because his interlocutor was so busy inserting himself into the interview, Jassy isn’t actually quoted uttering the T-word (although he does manage to land “TAM”). But he certainly isn’t refuting the notion there are thirteen orders of magnitude associated with the Enterprise Cloud Jackpot (and I use Jackpot in a thoroughly non-Gibsonian way, though legacy vendors…

The chateau-style home, which has 10 bedrooms and can accommodate over 16 people, goes for $7,010 a night. And that gets you quite a lot.Travive was built by Albert Farr in 1916. It's in a quiet residential neighborhood. When you come in the front door, you're greeted by an enormous winding staircase, a chandelier, and a piano for entertainment. Here's that winding staircase from above. See the rest of the story at Business…

You  might remember Lizard Squad as the guys who ‘hacked’ the XBox and Play Station network over the Christmas holidays, and I’m using a lot of ‘quotes’ here because Lizard Squad didn’t really ‘hack’ XBox One or Playstation, they merely DDOS-ed the services.

For those of you who aren’t keeping tabs of security issues–Poodle was a big vulnerability discovered in the 2nd half of 2014, that affected the SSLv3 protocol. The only fix for Poodle was to completely stop using SSLv3 altogether, not a bad idea, since the protocol itself is nearly 18 years old. In other…

    Share This: Over the weeks, the misfortunes of GTX 970 spread like wildfire and had new developments, and the amount of returns that are happening through multiple sources. However, it seems that there is no solution to address this issue in India. Such was the case with a user in Kolkata who faced stuttering issues with his Zotac GTX 970 in SLI, while playing in 4K.

Or, maybe you know exactly what you want, but are having trouble getting that result. Let’s break down a couple of typical conversations that happen during the design process, and how you can help avoid the disconnect. You say: “I’ll know it when I see it.” Designer hears: “Create something, and then I’ll know it’s not what I wanted.” Providing Clear Creative Direction Would you ask an architect to go build a house for you…

  • 4 Ways to Find GPS Coordinates for Any Location

    Aseem Kishore
    28 Feb 2015 | 2:29 am
    There are certain occasions when you need the exact coordinates for a specific location, but most map applications don’t show that kind of data front and center because it’s not something that is needed very often. I’ve learned that getting the GPS coordinates can be very handy if your GPS device can’t find a specific address. If you’re like me and haven’t updated your Garmin or TomTom in years, then a lot of newer areas simply won’t show up when you search for them. Also, if you are short on data usage, it’s probably not a good idea to use…
  • How to Open UIF File

    Aseem Kishore
    26 Feb 2015 | 10:44 pm
    Have you recently downloaded a UIF file and now want to mount it so that you can view the contents? A UIF file is actually a MagicISO CD/DVD image file. The file can contain documents, photos, videos, etc. In order to view the contents, you have to first mount the UIF image file. There are many formats for creating images files of CD/DVDs, but UIF is used because it provides better encryption and also has better compression. The most common image format is ISO. Instead of trying to mount a UIF directly, the best option is to convert the UIF image to an ISO image and then mount the ISO image.

    Looking for a way to convert your laptop or desktop into a wireless router? You may find yourself in a situation where there isn’t a wireless router around for everyone to connect to.

    Need to find or check the current BIOS version on your laptop or desktop computer? The BIOS or UEFI firmware is the software that comes installed on your PC motherboard by default and that detects and controls the built-in hardware including hard drives, video cards, USB ports, memory, etc. Whether you need to update the BIOS or not is something I’ve written about previously and the basic premise of that article was not to update unless you really have a specific need to.

    Most people probably don’t care, but the default time display in Windows is 12 hour format, not military time. However, for all of the people who routinely tell time using the military time format, being able to change it on their computers can prove to be very useful. You would think it would be super easy to change the clock in Windows to military time, but it’s not! The procedure is also different depending on which version of Windows you are using.

    When I first got into the online business/internet marketing space (way back in 2004) one of the ideas I saw thrown around a lot was this notion of getting business on “autopilot”. I always thought it was a little silly. It sounded like straight up hype to me. I mean how is it possible to get traffic, leads and sales on “autopilot”… the same numbers week after week without a lot of input on your part? Didn’t seem possible.

  • Is iron rain the reason why Earth and the moon are so different?

    Simon Redfern, Professor in Earth Sciences at University of Cambridge
    2 Mar 2015 | 10:43 am
    New experiments show that the asteroids that slammed into Earth and the moon more than 4 billion years ago were vaporised into a mist of iron. The findings, published in Nature Geoscience, suggest that the iron mist thrown up from the high velocity impacts of these asteroids travelled fast enough to escape the moon’s gravity, but stayed gravitationally stuck on more massive Earth. And these results may help explain why the chemistry of the Earth and the moon differ. When and how Earth’s metallic core formed is uncertain. Clues come from known differences in the preferences of certain…

  • What the FREAK? Huge SSL security flaw stems from US government backdoor

    Mark Wilson
    3 Mar 2015 | 1:15 pm
    Seven hours is all it takes to crack the encryption that is in place on some supposedly secure websites. Security experts blame the US government's ban on the use of strong encryption back in the 1990s for a vulnerability that has just come to light. Named FREAK (Factoring attack on RSA-EXPORT Keys), the flaw exists on high-profile websites including, ironically, NSA.gov. Restrictions that limited security to just 512-bit encryptions were lifted in the late 90s, but not before it was baked into software that is still in use today. The ban on the shipping of software with stronger encryption…
  • Qualcomm challenges Apple's fingerprint sensor tech with new Touch ID rival

    David Curry
    3 Mar 2015 | 10:44 am
    Fresh from a few big mobile announcements at MWC, Qualcomm has announced a new fingerprint sensor technology to compete with Apple’s Touch ID. Qualcomm’s Snapdragon Sense ID is a new technology using ultrasonic waves to create a 3D fingerprint of the user, offering more depth than Touch ID, which uses an area-type capacitive 2D fingerprint. Ultrasonic waves are already used in biometric facilities and business services, meaning this is the first consumer variation of the technology. Not only can Qualcomm’s fingerprint sensor understand more from a fingerprint, but it also can be used on…

  • Will the Galaxy S6 help Samsung challenge Apple once more?

    Barclay Ballard

    On the surface, Samsung’s position as the world’s second largest smartphone vendor seems formidable. The firm’s mobile division posted profits of £1.1 billion for the fourth quarter of last year and its most recently released flagship phone, the S5, has sold more than 12 million units worldwide since its launch. However, all is not well with the South Korean technology giant. Samsung has seen its global position in the smartphone market eroded at the top-end by Apple and by lower-cost Chinese vendors at the bottom. Late last year, Apple became the global leader of the smartphone market…

    At this year’s Consumer Electronics Show (CES 2015) in Las Vegas, the big theme was the “Internet of things” (IoT) — the idea that everything in the human environment, from kitchen appliances to industrial equipment, could be equipped with sensors and processors that can exchange data. But, realizing that vision requires transmitters that are powerful enough to broadcast to devices dozens of yards away but energy-efficient enough to last for months — or even to harvest energy from heat or mechanical vibrations. A key challenge is designing these circuits with extremely low standby…

  • MIT's new drug-delivering nanogel can be injected instead of requiring surgery.

    Scientists are interested in using gels to deliver drugs, because they can be molded into specific shapes and designed to release their payload over a specified time period. However, current versions are not always practical, because they must be implanted surgically. To help overcome that obstacle, MIT chemical engineers have designed a new type of self-healing hydrogel that could be injected through a syringe. Such gels can carry one or two drugs at a time. They are useful for treating cancer or heart disease. This nanogel can change shape when applying stress to it, and it can re-heal when…

    Il tuo sito web non funziona come dovrebbe perché le pagine hanno tempi di apertura troppo elevati e occasionalmente il browser invece del sito stesso ti mostra il classico errore 500 (il server non risponde). Come fare? Meglio cambiare gestore di servizi hosting? A volte sì, a volte no. Vediamo perché. Quando il tuo sito web non si apre velocemente come vorresti, i primi a salire sul banco degli imputati sono l’agenzia che ha sviluppato il progetto web e/o l’hosting provider che ospita il sito sui propri server. Ma la colpa di tutto è davvero sempre da ricercarsi tra questi due…

    Guest Blog Post by Robert Dupont of the excellent social media marketing blog #SMMGuide. By now, it’s no secret that many people—from mom bloggers to celebrities to politicians—have acquired a portion of their social media following by simply purchasing it. Last year, there was a brief media outrage when it was reported thatHillary Clinton had bought Twitter followers, much to the delight of her adversaries who were quick to condemn the former First Lady for her “immoral” behavior.Now that the public has had some time to reflect on this revelation, what should we make of this…
  • How To Cut Off Selling to Specific Parts of the World

    25 Feb 2015 | 10:26 am

There’s no clear way for many to understand the true volume of app store searchesfor any particular keyword, and competition across verticals is proliferating daily. Fortunately, we’ve been able to accurately track categorical trends, search volumes, and user preferences, but of course our proprietary methodology isn’t accessible to just anyone.

  • How to Offer Free Checkouts to Promote Your Product

With this feature, your buyer pays nothing and we do not charge a per transaction fee. This is a great option for teaser products. For example: if you want to offer a free song download to entice your fans and potential fans to buy your whole album.

    Read a post the other day that said we would soon reach Peak Code (see ROUGH TYPE Peak Code? post). In his post, Nick Carr discussed a NBER paper (see Robots Are Us: Some Economics of Human Replacement, purchase required). The paper implied we will shortly reach peak code because of the proliferation of software reuse and durability which will lead to less of a need for software engineers/coders. Peak code refers to a maximum amount of code produced in a year that will be reached at some point, afterwards, code production will decline. Software durability, hogwash Let’s dispense…
  • All flash storage performance testing

    Ray
    24 Feb 2015 | 1:21 pm
    There are some serious problems with measuring IO performance of all flash arrays with what we use on disk storage systems. Mostly, these are due to the inherent differences between current flash- and disk-based storage. NAND garbage collection First off, garbage collection is required by any SSD or NAND storage to be able to write data. Garbage collection coalesces free space by moving non-modified data to new pages/blocks and freeing up the space held by old, no-longer current data. The problem is NAND garbage collection takes place only after a suitable amount of write activity and…

VVOLs queue depth problem? One performance problem from my perspective is that all VVOL FC IO is now funeled through a single Protocol Endpoint (PE) LUN for a single storage system. There may be some potential queue depth issues, but Satyam and Howard both said that queue depths have been greatly increased over the last decade or so and this shouldn’t be a…

I am sure even if you have not used any of the existing container technologies, you must have at least read or heard about them. I am not the first one to write about containers and this is certainly not an in-depth overview of container technologies. I will eventually get there and show you how you can deploy different container technologies. This series of articles is about my own thoughts and a documentation for my own reference. In the process, I wish to help my readers as well.

    Joe Kinsella
    8 Feb 2015 | 2:52 pm
    After years of being in the closet, I'm coming clean: I'm a technology profiler. In my never ending search for good engineers, I instinctively form opinions of the quality of someone's software talent based on nothing more than what I see in their profile. It's like a facial tic I can't get rid of. For example, you say: "I write ASP.NET code to SQL Server in a big company", and I think: "No freaking way can you build complex software in a fast moving startup." Or you say: "I'm writing the multi-threaded backend of a cloud-based distributed system in a startup using Haskell", and I think:…

But there is a fundamental truth of hiring that often gets lost in traditional job descriptions: great engineers are not defined by their degree, number of years experience, or the technologies they work with - but by their core abilities / traits.

When the partner I was meeting came out, I couldn’t help but ask: “Where do all the books come from? Partners bring them in?” “Oh no,” he said. “Those all…

    Our expectations about what exactly our computers can achieve is changing. We’re no longer tied to PCs or even laptops, and flexible technology is starting to hint at a future where electronics easily (and consistently) interface with our everyday lives. Organic electronics is groundbreaking enough, but an additional ‘wow’ factor in future tech has to be gesture recognition. It’s surprising just how much can be achieved with organic electronics, and the incorporation of flexible technology and its use in applications such as bio-scanners is interesting. What makes this possible is the…

    Lots of people are talking about the Superfish malware debacle. People are starting to understand just how bad this situation is. What I haven’t seen so far why venture capitalists would have backed such a startup. Superfish investors, board members and advisors include Andrea Stavopouslos (Draper Fisher Jurvestson), Abe Finkelstein (Vintage Investment Partners), Anat Segal (Xenia Venture Capital), Shai Saul (DFJ again) and others. The company has raised a total of nearly $20 million in venture capital, from people I interact with all the time. Superfish tells the world they’re a…

    I finally got around to trying out Circle today. Boy it’s bad. Particularly for a company that has raised $26 million. This is a space we’re interested in at CrunchFund, and are looking for who might be the breakout winners. Circle is supposed to be a dead simple Bitcoin wallet and money transfer service. But here’s my experience: 1. I created an account and tried to add my bank account and credit card to deposit money into the system (as Bitcoin). I had to give a lot of personal information. And I had to take a photo of my drivers license. And then I had to take a selfie.

I read most of my books on my iPhone 6 plus now. Before that was an iPad. I also listen to audio books in the car and on walks. But sometimes it takes me months to finish a book in the car @ 13-20 hours of audio, and whatever book I’m listening to there in the car is of course a different book than the one…

I last wrote about them in December when CrunchFund invested. Since then they’ve sold a LOT of shirts.

    Detroit. It was once the factory of America. No more. For most of us, Detroit has been a city in decline for much or all of our lives. The population has declined rapidly, and everyone has seen the images of abandoned buildings, drug violence and abject poverty. In other words, Detroit is the perfect place to begin anew. There is an energy there as people begin to rebuild. A willingness to experiment. A stubbornness to succeed. Tech startups can play a pivotal role in rebuilding, but infrastructure is needed. We are seeing a dramatic increase in the number of Detroit based startups looking…

  • Best device for Online Gaming with Slots!

    Rahul Banker
    12 Feb 2015 | 1:52 am
    Slots have been around since the 19th century, though the earlier versions were much more primitive compared to the games you can play today. Originating in New York, the game was invented when Sittman and Pitt created a type of gambling drum that consisted of a lever and 50 card faces. The players would pay one nickel to place their bets and when the drum stopped spinning, the outcome was based on poker hands. Winners would receive a payout in the form of drinks, merchandise and food. No money was awarded to players and so although the game gained some fans, it didn’t explode on to the…

The reality, unfortunately was much different. For the most part, Isaacson's book rehashed a great deal of what we already knew about Jobs without providing much in the way of new, or at the very least, interesting information.
