    A telepresence robot developed at the École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL) that can be controlled by thought may give people with severe motor disabilities a greater level of independence. Successfully put through its paces by 19 people scattered around Central Europe – nine of whom are quadriplegic and all of whom were hooked up to a brain-machine interface – the robot handled obstacle detection and avoidance on its own while the person controlling it gave general navigation instructions...

  • Google Updates Hangouts For iOS With A New Interface

    29 Jun 2015 | 2:57 pm
    Today Google shipped an update for their Hangouts application on iOS. The update brings the version number to 4.0, and rightfully so as it comes with a new design for the entire application. Although this is an iOS application, it feels very much like an Android application as it follows the same Material Design principles that Google's Android applications use. Above you can see the conversation view for the application running on an iPad. It still retains the bar to initiate a call with the person on the right hand side, which may pose a problem in the near future when users pull from…

  • European climate at mercy of retreating sea ice

    Richard Moss
    30 Jun 2015 | 3:22 am
    An international team of scientists has found that retreating sea ice between the Atlantic and Arctic Oceans is linked to weakened air-sea heat exchange in the region. This, it warns, could result in a cooler climate in western Europe and an altered or slower Atlantic Meridional Overturning Circulation (AMOC), which would have knock-on effects for the Gulf Stream and consequently for the atmosphere...

    The Morning Routines Of The Most Successful People: Kevan Lee:For many of us, checking email or listening to voice mail is practically automatic. In many ways, these are among the worst ways to start a day. Both activities hijack our focus and put us in a reactive mode, where other people’s priorities take center stage. They are the equivalent of entering a kitchen and looking for a spill to clean or a pot to scrub.That’s a good (and correct) way to frame it, I think.

A little over a year ago, Chesky reached out and asked if he could travel to Omaha to have lunch, in part to talk about how Airbnb might help expand the number of rooms available in town during Berkshire’s annual meeting weekend. The discussion ended up lasting 4½ hours. Chesky’s biggest takeaway: the value of not getting caught up in the noise. “He’s literally in the center of Omaha,” Chesky says.

These are all tasks where the user is consuming content rather than creating it. As tablets have advanced and become both more capable and more widespread they have become more suitable for content creation purposes. Software companies…

  • The Samsung Exynos 7420 Deep Dive - Inside A Modern 14nm SoC

    Over the past few years it’s been somewhat expected tradition for Samsung Electronics to employ a strategy of multi-sourcing the SoC for their mobile devices. Most notably it’s on the North American and specifically CDMA markets that we saw wide usage of Qualcomm SoCs. This diversification started with the Galaxy S2 as it was offered both in versions with Samsung System LSI's Exynos chipset as well as variants with Qualcomm’s Snapdragon offerings. On the last few generation of devices we’ve seen the average share of Exynos in Galaxy devices continually decline, as…

    An anonymous reader writes: The European Union's three main legislative bodies, the European Council, the European Parliment, and the European Commision, have reached an agreement on "Open Internet" rules that establish principles similar to Net Neutrality in the EU. The rules require that all internet traffic and users be treated equally, forbidding paid-for prioritisation of traffic. However, exemptions are permitted for particular "specialised services" where the service is not possible under the open network's normal conditions, provided that the customer using the service pays for the…

    jfruh writes: In the 1980s and 1990s, thousands of young people who had grown up tinkering with PCs hit college and dove into curricula designed around the vague notion that they might want to "do something with computers." Today, computer science education is a lot more practical — though in many ways that's just going back to the discipline's roots. As Christopher Mims put it in the Wall Street Journal, "we've entered an age in which demanding that every programmer has a degree is like asking every bricklayer to have a background in architectural engineering."Read more of this story…

  • Most Efficient Solar Panels

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

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

    An 18-year-old was severely injured on Saturday after being bitten by a shark on the Outer Banks of North Carolina, marking the sixth reported attack along the state's coastline in as little as three weeks. See also: North Carolina shark attack victim: 'I didn't see it coming' The victim arrived at Sentara Norfolk General Hospital with critical injuries sustained to his right calf, buttocks, and both hands, according to a post from the National Park Service's Facebook page.

  • Apple Music streams songs at the same quality as iTunes downloads

    Regular music listeners may not care, but there's segment of audiophiles out there that really cares deeply about their music's audio quality. It was previously reported Apple Music would stream music at a bit rate of 256 kilobits per second (kbps) in Advanced Audio Coding (AAC) and Mashable has now confirmed this is the case. See also: Apple Music vs. the streaming competition Bit rate is the amount of data that's processed in any given amount of time.

  • FCC Commissioner Legally Tasked With Bringing Broadband To All Americans Doesn't Think Broadband's All That Important

    Karl Bode
    30 Jun 2015 | 6:23 am
    Nobody could ever accuse FCC Commissioner Mike O'Rielly of being a consumer advocate. As one of five agency commissioners, O'Rielly (alongside former Verizon lawyer Ajit Pai) has voted down every single meaningful FCC effort to aid consumers and improve broadband market competition. Whether it's trying to protect net neutrality, or the FCC's attempt to stop ISPs from writing obnoxious protectionist state law, O'Rielly's sole function appears to be to oppose pretty much everything that could possibly help the American public, under the ingenious pretense of helping the American public.

  • NSA -- Despite Claiming It Doesn't Engage In Economic Espionage -- Engaged In Economic Espionage

    Mike Masnick
    30 Jun 2015 | 4:12 am
    The NSA has long claimed that it does not engage in "economic espionage." NSA and Defense Department officials have repeatedly insisted that while they do lots of other things, economic espionage is not on the list: “The Department of Defense does engage” in computer network exploitation, according to an e-mailed statement from an NSA spokesman, whose agency is part of the Defense Department. “The department does ***not*** engage in economic espionage in any domain, including cyber.” These claims are made in a strange attempt to suggest that the NSA is somehow "better" than those like…

    30 Jun 2015 | 1:12 am
    When it comes to old notions that are used to stave off the need to embrace new business models in the digital age, nothing is more annoying than the whole "the masses just want everything for free" myth. That belief is snappy, punchy, and as simple to understand as it is completely and demonstrably wrong. But for a certain segment of the population, typically older generations of the kind that pine for the good old days when America was all apple pie and tasteful cartoons, the myth persists. Now, however, the myth is old. Old enough that it's begun to lose its flavor, like a piece of gum…

    Chanel is a company that does fashion and perfume. I know this because I can't walk into a department store without walking past a bunch of glass cases that smell like someone boiled six billion flowers in a pot and then threw it on me, leaving me only to walk past the purses and handbag sections and laugh at the prices for tiny, tiny little bags. Chanel does not sell chocolate, unless you count naming some of the afore-mentioned perfumes and handbags with vaguely chocolate-y names. I know this because I did a Google search to make sure, and those are infallible. And, yet, for some reason,…

    There are thousands of species of mosquitoes. Killing them all might not be advisable, but controlling how they interact with us would be good -- so that we can prevent various mosquito-borne diseases. If you hate mosquito bites, check out a few of these links to learn more about your tiny tiny nemeses. Mosquitoes seem to like some people more than others, but is that really true? Maybe. And there might be a genetic reason for it. A (small) study of twins showed that mosquitoes didn't 'smell' a difference between identical twins but could for non-identical twins. A genetic explanation of this…

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

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

It was a tough race and thoughts and emotions are still swirling but wanted to put things down in writing although I’m sure my thoughts and judgments will change over the next few days and weeks. The Leona Divide 50k was part of long term plan to attempt and finish my first ultra this year. In December I started training for my first attempt, the Sean O’Brien 50k but then I figured I should attempt a trail marathon so I switched…

The day before the race I thought I could pull it off even though I had massive body aches and felt like death warmed over. I picked up my bib and shirt but by the time I got home I was a wreck and had to DNS the race. This year I went back to the Bandit a week after running the Sean O’ Brien Marathon but went to volunteer.

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…

It would warrant a major shift in its relationship with Google but the rumor mill seems to be adamant that this is going to happen, particularly because Windows Phone hasn’t seen any substantial growth and for Microsoft to boost its mobile business Android appears to be the only option.

    30 Jun 2015 | 5:17 am
    The Samsung Galaxy A8 is a phone that we have been hearing about for a while now. We’ve seen it at the FCC, we’ve seen leaked photos, but in case you were still skeptical about the phone and its design, perhaps this might change your mind. A new video has surfaced in which it shows the upcoming handset given a hands-on treatment. Unfortunately the video does not have any sound so we’re not sure what the person in the video might be saying, if he is saying anything at all, but it does seem to confirm what we have seen previously in leaked photos. It also gives us a better idea of how big…

    To make sure they do Nokia’s memory justice, and don’t harm the Lumia brand’s global awareness and popularity any further, Microsoft has very meticulously prepared its solo high-end smartphone debut. This will reportedly coincide with the introduction of Windows 10 Mobile, the extremely promising sequel for the underwhelming Windows Phone 8… Continue reading The first Quad HD Microsoft Lumia (940 XL?) is just about confirmed Related posts: High-end Microsoft Lumia 940 pair rumored, duo of upper mid-rangers also nigh Microsoft’s first high-end Lumia with Windows 10 due out as…

    Many of Sony’s “strategic” moves regarding new product releases and old device retirements lately have made little to no sense, but in the eyes of easily pocketable flagship fans, the Japanese OEM should redeem itself soon enough with a remarkable Xperia Z4 Compact.

  • ISS Cargo Lost in SpaceX Falcon Flameout

    Richard Adhikari
    29 Jun 2015 | 4:26 pm
    The SpaceX CRS-7 rocket failed minutes after Sunday's launch, blowing up in mid-air. Just after T+2 minutes, when the craft's altitude was 32 km, its speed was 1 km/second, and its downrange distance was 30 km, its flight path apparently began curving downward. Three explosions then occurred. "There was an overpressure event in the upper stage liquid oxygen tank. Data suggests counterintuitive cause," SpaceX CEO Elon Musk tweeted. "The Falcon line has been a remarkably reliable launch vehicle," said Frost & Sullivan analyst Mike Jude.

    The United States Army Research, Development and Engineering Command has commissioned two companies to develop hoverbike technology. Malloy Aeronautics earlier this month demoed a working hoverbike at the Paris Air Show. The U.S. Army intends to operate the hoverbike as a new class of tactical reconnaissance vehicle. "This isn't for jungles or mountains, but could be ideal for patrols over deserts, swamps, or other open areas with mixed terrain," suggested Rob Enderle, principal at the Enderle Group.
  • The Automobile as We Know It Is Dead

    Rob Enderle
    29 Jun 2015 | 9:43 am
    There's a massive number of efforts going on to kill the car as we know it. Among them are efforts to make it a tiny self-driving box that we'd likely be embarrassed to be seen in, efforts to make it highly customized and amazing, and efforts to change its fuel from gasoline to CNG, electricity or something else. There is no doubt that the car as we know it soon will be dead. The question is whether we'll love or hate what replaces it, and I wonder if our children will look back at what we've done and praise us or curse us.
  • Gadget Ogling: Vertical Vinyl, Kid-Friendly Video Chats, and a Smart Pool Monitor

    I enjoy music as much as anyone, though I'm no real audiophile and I have not an enormous passion for one format over another. I admire the romance of vinyl but find it unwieldy and cumbersome when digital recordings work just fine for me. The Floating Record turntable is beautiful, though, and I'm almost tempted to race to my record store to stock up on vinyl to play on one of these. Instead of playing records in their usual flat position, Floating Record clamps them in place vertically, so as to display them while they're playing.
  • Self-Driving Cars Avoid Collision, as They Should

    26 Jun 2015 | 1:50 pm
    Two self-driving prototype vehicles, one operated by Google and the other operated by Delphi Automotive, earlier this week avoided a collision in Palo Alto, California. Neither car touched the other, but the incident spurred a number of rattled headlines over the so-called "near miss." In actuality, both vehicles responded as they were supposed to, the companies said in response to the media brouhaha. The incident occurred on Tuesday when John Absemeier, director of Delphi Automotive's Silicon Valley lab, was a passenger in his company's Audi Q5 as it drove along San Antonio Road.

  • Uber Could Track Users After They Leave Car, Privacy Group Claims

    A privacy rights organization lashed out against Uber on Monday, accusing the country's largest ride-sharing company of plans to deceptively collect personal data under an updated privacy policy slated to roll out next month. In a 23-page complaint filed with the Federal Trade Commission, the Electronic Privacy Information Center called for the agency to investigate Uber and halt possible privacy invasions ahead of a revised policy set to take effect July 15. "Uber's revised privacy policy creates several risks for American consumers," said EPIC in its complaint. But Uber said in a statement…
  • Review: Apple Has Best Smartwatch, But Rivals Have Strengths

    28 Jun 2015 | 5:12 am
    As much as I wish the Apple Watch (pictured) could do more, I find it the best smart watch available, given its polished design and wide range of apps. But there may be reasons to consider something else. For one thing, Apple Watch requires an iPhone. Pebble Time, in particular, works with both iPhones and Android devices and excels at battery life. But it falls short elsewhere. Whether you need a smartwatch at all is another matter. Many people are happy having one, but others won't need one yet. If you need to stay connected continually and find that pulling out a phone is inconvenient, you…
  • FCC Claims Dire Net Neutrality Predictions Are Unfounded

    Open-Internet-opposing "big dogs" -- ISPs threatening to starve their investments in broadband networks -- are more bark than bite, according to comments made Friday by Federal Communications Commission (FCC) Chairman Tom Wheeler (pictured). Since the FCC issued its ground-breaking Open Internet Order in March, such opponents' predictions about eroding incentives to invest have failed to materialize, he said. Wheeler made his remarks in a speech at The Brookings Institution in Washington, D.C. During his talk, he also discussed the importance of continuing to develop the nation's broadband…
  • You Know You Want One: Lexus Says Its Hoverboard Really Flies

    Lexus unveiled an online ad featuring a hoverboard Wednesday, but "Back to the Future" fans won't be getting their hands on it. The futuristic skateboard that seems to levitate was not invented to be sold, a spokeswoman said after Lexus released a video demonstrating a prototype at a Barcelona skatepark. The hoverboard instead is an attempt to highlight the company and its technology 25 years after the luxury car brand released its first sedans. "It's just trying to push the design and innovation envelope and show it to the world," said Lexus spokeswoman Allison Takahashi, adding that the…

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

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

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

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

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

  • Hong Kong’s Challenge to China

    Kyle Baxter
    29 Sep 2014 | 6:02 pm
    After China placed limitations on candidates for Hong Kong’s city leader, Hong Kong erupted in protest. This, of course, presents a large challenge to Xi Jinping and the PRC. Edward Wong and Chris Buckley write for the Times: China’s Communist Party has ample experience extinguishing unrest. For years it has used a deft mix of censorship, arrests, armed force and, increasingly, money, to repress or soften calls for political change. But as he faces massive street demonstrations in Hong Kong pressing for more democracy in the territory, the toolbox of President Xi Jinping of China…

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

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

  • If Knowledge is Power, Why Not Change Your Life With it?

    Will Schmidt
    30 Jun 2015 | 5:00 am
    If you look back across the history of One Month, you’ll see that CEO Mattan Griffel has always promoted a philosophy that everything is about the students. In fact, he told us as much at SXSW this year. Perhaps he’s inspired by the Latin phrase Scientia potentia est: I’m sure you’re all familiar with it. It reads “knowledge is power”, and in this case Griffel has used his central philosophy to offer his students power over their very futures. If you take a One Month class Griffel doesn’t see you as only another number passing through the system. Rather, he cares if you finish…

    25 Jun 2015 | 5:32 am
    I had the opportunity to visit with some European based customers when I spoke at the RSA Unplugged conference in London just a few weeks ago. Many of the customers I met with were very interested in a deep dive into the types of threats we see in the region. I have written about the threat landscape in Europe and European Union (EU) extensively over the years, including the articles below:
  • Building Trust: Cyber-Solutions for Europe

    Jan Neutze
    19 Jun 2015 | 9:17 am
    Xavier Bettel, Prime Minister, Luxembourg Last week, Microsoft partnered with POLITICO to host the first Annual Cybersecurity Summit. The event comes at a key moment in time. Cybersecurity has never been higher on the political agenda in the EU and globally. And with good reason. This month’s cyber-attack on the U.S. Federal Government personnel office, which led to the information of around 4 million federal workers being stolen, is unfortunately not an isolated incident. This event reminds us once again of the importance of governments and companies ensuring the highest levels of…
  • Wanted: Strong Leadership for Secure Cyberspace

    Scott Charney
    10 Jun 2015 | 2:50 am
    In November of last year, the high-profile hacking of Sony Pictures Entertainment resulted in the mass release of confidential information and the disruption of IT systems. This widely publicized event is one of many where a government has been accused of a damaging cyberattack. Therein lies the discontinuity. While cybercriminals of course act in disregard of the common good, governments are supposed to be different. Governments are supposed to protect the national security, public safety and economic prosperity of their own citizens and, even further, they are supposed to promote…
  • Trust and Transparency: Building Blocks for the Digital Single Market

    Jan Neutze
    3 Jun 2015 | 7:36 am
    What is trust? As defined in the dictionary, it consists of a firm and assured belief in the character, ability, strength, or truth of someone or something. But this hardly does justice to the importance of a principle which underpins every human and social interaction. Trust is fundamental to the functioning of our societies and economies. Even more so in today’s increasingly inter-connected world. Unsurprisingly, building confidence and trust online is a key pillar of the recently unveiled Digital Single Market strategy, an ambitious plan which aims to help Europe reap the benefits of…
  • Microsoft Transparency Center opens in Brussels

    3 Jun 2015 | 1:11 am
    Governments around the world are under increased and increasing pressure to protect their citizens and critical assets from cyber-attack. Ensuring the defense of national infrastructure from online threats calls for a high level of openness and cooperation between public and private sectors. Throughout our history, Microsoft has helped governments build and deploy more secure IT infrastructure and services to protect their citizens and national economies. As part of this investment, I’m excited to announce the opening of the Microsoft Transparency Center in Brussels, the latest step in the…

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

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

Nope, here we have Apple enlisting the aid of former SNL comic Bill Hader, who shares a humorous behind-the-scenes peek at what could have been at WWDC… Alas, there were no iPhone 6S or iPhone 7 rumors in there, just a goat and some larger-than-life fingers. But the actual WWDC’s introduction of iOS 9 did spark speculation about the next flagship iPhones.To…
  • I knew it: Commissioner Gordon and EMC Chief Joe Tucci are twins after all!

    I've suspected for years that EMC chief Joe Tucci and Neil Hamilton, who played Commissioner Gordon in the 1960s Batman TV series, were one in the same. And now, thanks to a Microsoft brainiac's website, I've been sort of vindicated.Apparently, there's a 78% chance that the two are related.The site, TwinsOrNot, uses Microsoft's newish Face Recognition API, which was introduced at Build 2015.

  • NVIDIA Quadro Brings Stunning Realism to Flight Simulators

    30 Jun 2015 | 5:06 am
    Early flight simulators maneuvered a closed circuit TV camera above a physical terrain model to mimic flight. Today's simulators are complex computer systems that render terrain databases ranging from hundreds to thousands of square miles. Systems such as NASA's OBVA simulator use multiple 4K projectors to provide a scene with 20/10 visual acuity. These "virtual reality" training environments let pilots suspend their disbelief so they feel like they're flying a real aircraft. With the stakes so high in learning to fly commercial planes, the last thing you want is to spoil the illusion. Yet…

    There is a review of the PowerColor PCS+ R9 380 posted at LanOC today that is certainly worth checking out. Here's a quote from the full review to get you started: So today I'm going to check out the card from PowerColor and see what they have going on and along with that we can see if having the additional frame buffer is worth it in our benchmark suite. With these cards not exactly being focused towards higher resolution gameplay I'm not sure if we will see too much at 1080p but given the 1440p numbers we saw before I bet we see some improvement there!

    As I can’t get alone to InfoSec15 this year, I thought I would get a flavour of what’s going on by pointing our experimental text mining tool in that direction. See the graph below. Bruce Schneier and John McAfee seem to have the influence they deserve, followed by BSOD (is Windows 10 here already? ) and “trashier tearaway”, which seems to be a reference to an article in The Register about the perils of allowing BYO-IoT-D (Bring Your Own Internet of Things Device!) into secure networks. also, full marks to whoever thought up “malvertising”!

  • Machine Age automation kills jobs & wages shocker

He uses the though experiment of a 2 industry economy, one with hi tech, high wage manufacturing and low tech, low wage dog grooming. Over time the high tech labour gets displaced by automation and more people become dog groomers, so average wages in the population fall, those left in manufacturing get…
  • Where have all the Gurus gone?

    14 May 2015 | 1:24 pm
    Article from The Economist echoes something I've been thinking increasingly - there's not a lot of new stuff coming out of guruland these days. I thought it was just me getting old and cynical, as increasingly everything "New" just seemed to be a rehash of something from 2 decades ago or more. I had started assumed New Gurus (Gurii?) were mining old, out of print books and rehashing old whines into new booklets. The Economist has noticed the same, and is looking for reasons why - they think that: What explains such lethargy in a supposedly lethargy-busting industry? The main problem is that…
  • Email as the Lingua Franca of the Digital Babel

    6 May 2015 | 7:38 am
    Do you remember all the predictions that "email will die" and that social tools will replace it with "ambient intimacy" or similar? Turns out that not only is it very unlikely email will ever die (see my argument re Riepl's Law on that score) but is also highly likely to grow, not shrink. The reason for this is due to (i) The sheer volume of comms on the new systems has just reproduced email's problem - ANY system, email included, is effective when the volume of messages is manageable, and overload looks the same on all of them. Except email has better timestamping, search and storage as its…

  • FCC Commissioner Legally Tasked With Bringing Broadband To All Americans Doesn't Think Broadband's All That Important

    Karl Bode

    Nobody could ever accuse FCC Commissioner Mike O'Rielly of being a consumer advocate. As one of five agency commissioners, O'Rielly (alongside former Verizon lawyer Ajit Pai) has voted down every single meaningful FCC effort to aid consumers and improve broadband market competition. Whether it's trying to protect net neutrality, or the FCC's attempt to stop ISPs from writing obnoxious protectionist state law, O'Rielly's sole function appears to be to oppose pretty much everything that could possibly help the American public, under the ingenious pretense of helping the American public.

NSA and Defense Department officials have repeatedly insisted that while they do lots of other things, economic espionage is not on the list: “The Department of Defense does engage” in computer network exploitation, according to an e-mailed statement from an NSA spokesman, whose agency is part of the Defense Department. “The department does ***not*** engage in economic espionage in any domain, including cyber.” These claims are made in a strange attempt to suggest that the NSA is somehow "better" than those like…

    When it comes to old notions that are used to stave off the need to embrace new business models in the digital age, nothing is more annoying than the whole "the masses just want everything for free" myth. That belief is snappy, punchy, and as simple to understand as it is completely and demonstrably wrong. But for a certain segment of the population, typically older generations of the kind that pine for the good old days when America was all apple pie and tasteful cartoons, the myth persists. Now, however, the myth is old. Old enough that it's begun to lose its flavor, like a piece of gum…

Chanel does not sell chocolate, unless you count naming some of the afore-mentioned perfumes and handbags with vaguely chocolate-y names. I know this because I did a Google search to make sure, and those are infallible. And, yet, for some reason,…

If you hate mosquito bites, check out a few of these links to learn more about your tiny tiny nemeses. Mosquitoes seem to like some people more than others, but is that really true? Maybe. And there might be a genetic reason for it. A (small) study of twins showed that mosquitoes didn't 'smell' a difference between identical twins but could for non-identical twins.

The new one had a different problem that made it unusable. Tuesday I went back to exchange that box. They told me I was in luck, that their brand new amazing box that lets you record 7 channels at once was available… but, then, the support person assisting me couldn’t get the system to actually let…

  • How to Find Public Google Drive Folders

    Kaushik Patowary
    3 Jun 2015 | 9:12 am
    Generally, when you try to open a web directory in your browser, the browser will either return you an “index” page – an HTML page (or PHP or ASP etc.) that’s in the root of the directory, or if the index file is absent, it will deny access to the directory. But if the index file is missing and the webmaster forgot to password protect the folder, the server will return a listing of the files that are within the directory. An unprotected web directory is like a publicly accessible open computer. You can navigate within the folders, view files or even download them. Many webmasters…
  • Where to Buy Used Books Online With Cheap/Free International Shipping

    There are thousands of book stores on the internet that will sell you used books for cheap. If their business is in the same country as yours, you can even avail free shipping, or at least, a reasonable shipping rate. Book lovers from the United States and the United Kingdom are typically at advantage here because a large of number of publishing houses and book stores operate from these countries. But for international addresses, the cost of shipping is usually high enough to prohibit buyers from taking advantage of their services. Take Powell’s for instance, a bookstore based in Portland,…

Instead, these leaders have the ability to convert criticism into boosting agents, which allow them to challenge themselves and make things better.

  • The original smartwatches: Casio's history of wild wrist designs

    29 Jun 2015 | 11:25 pm
    The Apple Watch has been out for over two months now, and other modern smartwatches well before that. It’s no longer the stuff of sci-fi to consider using your watch to play music, control your TV, or track your fitness. But these are all things that you’ve been able to do for a surprisingly long time - well, if you maybe lived in Japan in the ‘90s and didn’t mind carrying around a bunch of Casio watches, that is. I already highlighted several of these Casio classics in my Moto 360 review, but The Verge does a nice job of listing them with beautiful photos.

Last year's decision by the Federal Circuit Court of Appeals opened the possibility that efforts to make software work together better could trigger copyright liability. The result could be more compatibility problems and less innovation. The most disgusting and…
  • Artificial intelligence machine gets testy with its programmer

It struggles to do so, and in a conversation recorded by its human engineers, becomes exasperated and ends the conversation by lashing out at its human inquisitor. Eerie.

  • Why is Android still the second platform developers work on?

    Every year we see the same promise: this is the year that Android-first development will become a reality. At the same time we see big companies like Instagram repeatedly introduce new apps that are iOS-only. Android has been able to tout more market share than iOS for quite some time, but that doesn't seem to have translated into app developers releasing Android apps at the same time as their iOS counterparts, much less Android-first. Over the past few weeks I've been talking with developers and researching why this is still the case. A major reason not discussed in this article: the large…

The Nt is a modern Nintendo Entertainment System hewn from a solid block of aluminum, and retails for $499 (plus an extra $79 if you want HDMI output and hardware upscaling.)

  • Funny of Die Thinks Old People (in Their 70s) Are a Riot

    28 Jun 2015 | 4:11 pm
    Funny or Die and the music festival Bonnaroo “teamed up” to take four “old people” in their 70s to Bonnaroo so the other 80,000 attendees could see how cute four old people can be when interacting with festival goers and hearing new-fangled music. Old People At Bonnaroo from Funny Or Die   In addition to being blatantly ageist bigotry, the premise seems to fall apart when you consider that Funny or Die’s criteria for being an “old person” is being born before 1946. By that definition, here are some other cute old people they could have…

    The current Hammock Idea Email uses several analogies that remind us of something we should all know by now, but keep trying to convince ourselves isn’t true: that “tools” are only as good as the people who use them. Don’t just “get” tools. Learn how to use them. What “desktop publishing” was to the 1990s, “content marketing” or “social media marketing” can be to today. As with the desktop publishing myth, a company can purchase all of the software and mine all the data, only to discover that it is the talent, experience, creativity,…

    Apparently, someone has been telling business executives they need to become a “thought leader” by posting a “thought leadership” essay on their LinkedIn account. They apparently are confused by the challenge, thinking they are supposed to write about leadership. Being leaders, they assign the essay to a summer intern, as, well, summer interns are experts on social media, right? And therefore, they know about LinkedIn, right? So who else should write an essay about thought leadership? Or, at least, I hope that’s the reason every essay about leadership on…

In the album of photos I posted on Flickr, I included a shot of four acres of its roof planted with prairie grasses; a part of its water collection system.

    John uploaded a PDF file in Google Drive and shared it with Peter. A week later, John updated the PDF file and uploaded the new version to Google Drive. Peter however still has the link to the old version and John will have to send him another email informing of the new version. Confusing, right? You’ve probably gone through this situation where you have multiple copies of the same file residing in your Google Drive and, while you would like everyone to use the latest version, they are either not aware that the file has been updated or it takes too much work to locate it in the Drive.

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

    Earlier today, Falcon 9 rocket exploded after the launch at Cape Canaveral space center in Florida. The rocket was carrying its payload, going to the International Space Station (track current position) and it tumbled out of the sky into the Atlantic Ocean. This marks another setback in the space program, exploration and usable cargo delivery overall. After 23 successive successful launches, including six resupply missions for NASA, the first explosion of Falcon 9 marks the biggest setback yet. This might give second wind to proponents of government-controlled, funded (NASA or…

  • Why I shoot Nikon?

    Terry White
    29 Jun 2015 | 9:11 pm
    I can’t believe how many times this question comes up. Usually it’s asked by new photographers or photographers that haven’t yet made a decision on which brand DSLR they’re going to go with. Last week I attended a photography meet-up at one of the local studios. Keep in mind that this was just a casual setting and I didn’t even bring my gear (in hindsight I wish I had as there were some shooting opportunities there with new models). Two of the photographers walked up to me and we started talking about photography and videography in general. One of them asked me…

Before we get to the content let’s talk about installation Last year when we released the 2014 Release of Creative Cloud there was a lot of confusion because the installer installed the new CC 2014 apps along side your existing CC apps.

    If you’ve been following this blog then, you know I got an Apple Watch on day one 4/24/2015. I also bought an extra charging cable that could remain in my suitcase for travel. I take my Apple Watch off every night and put it on the charger for the night. I hate wearing any kind of jewelry when I sleep and even if Apple Watch never needed to be charged I would still take it off every night. I knew from day one that I would want a charging stand to put it on. Even before Apple Watch shipped there were companies showing their stands and I was shocked by the price of some of them. Let…
  • Best Tripod for Travel

    Terry White
    8 Jun 2015 | 9:11 pm
    One thing that I’ve learned the hard way more than once is that if you travel to a beautiful location without a tripod, you’re really limiting your potential. If you want to shoot long exposures you need a tripod as they are impossible to shoot handheld. If you want to shoot HDR during the evening or early morning hours you’re going to want a tripod. If you’re going to shoot time lapse then you’re going to want a tripod. I have a GREAT Tripod for travel. I bought it years ago. While I love the fact that it’s carbon fiber and therefore light weight, I wanted…

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

    While most of the big names have concentrated on coming up with a flagship device that is hot off the shelves, Lenovo has been doing things slightly differently. Unlike most of the major OEMs Lenovo is choosing to concentrate well on the lower end of the market and the mid-budget range, which is an interesting strategy given that the market in India is not as flourished as that abroad and the paying capacity of the people is significantly lower when compared to say the likes of the Europe or Northern America. Therefore, it makes sense to be present in a segment, which majority of the users…

    Facebook has been pretty adamant that Facebook Messenger is an independent service when compared to facebook. That is why, Messenger is being treated as a platform more than anything else post the announcement at F8. Since then several apps have come up which have used Messenger as a platform and while Facebook looks to create it as an independent entity, it is looking to totally cut any common chords that the app would have even with the parent that is Facebook. It does look like the kid has finally grown up enough to go its own route, as starting today, you will be able to sign up for…

    One of the major complaints that the users of iOS devices have had in the past couple of years has been that the system updates have required too much space on the ROM. This has prevented several users from upgrading to the latest versions of OS as far as users are concerned. Apple has heavily addressed this issue with iOS 9 which is the latest version of iOS. Not only has Apple assured that system updates would now be lighter and therefore, require lower space on the internal memory. While this is a positive, another major step that Apple has taken is adding the ability in iOS 9 whereby the…

  • 4 Criteria to Evaluate DDoS Mitigation Providers [Infographic]

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

  • Oracle Processor License Rounding

    Ask Sam
    23 Jun 2015 | 4:28 am
    Dear Sam, I’ve heard two conflicting points of view relating to Oracle processor licenses. Everyone seems to agree that licenses are rounded up. For example, if I have a machine with 2 cores of .75 factor each I need 1.5 licenses, which is rounded to 2. The disagreement is when you have multiples of those boxes. Let’s image we have 3 of those machines, each of which needs 1.5 licenses. Do we need a total of 6 (3 x 2) or of 5 (3 x 1.5 rounded up to 5) licenses? The wording in the Oracle SIG is ambiguous, it reads: “All cores on all multi core chips for each licensed program are to be…

    Sharing data between bindings in Specflow When performing Acceptance tests, you sometimes need to pass data between the individual steps within a scenario. In other words, data needs to be exchanged between different bindings during the execution of the test. SpecFlow provides several ways of sharing data between bindings. If all our step definitions are within the same binding class, introduce a field to this step definition class and reference it whenever it is required to be used in the same class. Another alternative is to use the SpecFlow ScenarioContext, this gives you access to a…

    It’s time to take a serious look at Office 365. The cloud edition of Microsoft’s broadly adopted business productivity suite – which bundles such popular packages as Microsoft Word, Microsoft Excel, Microsoft PowerPoint, and Microsoft Outlook – has been both heavily praised and heavily criticized since its introduction in 2011. While the adoption rate of the traditional software edition of Microsoft Office is currently in no danger of being overtaken by its cloud-hosted cousin, recent adoption rates for Office 365 have substantially accelerated.

It seems just as folks have gotten used to a particular Microsoft version, a new one is released with a completely different interface and requiring a whole new set of operational practices. Even worse, upgrading large numbers of desktops to the new edition in a large enterprise environment is a daunting task often avoided by IT operations teams until and unless it is absolutely necessary to perform a mass migration.

    If you are looking for a Windows Phone game to lose track of time with, check out Lines the Game from Game Troopers. While the game has a casual pace, it is not a pushover by any means. You are presented with a broad range of drawings and have to determine a strategy to create the longest colored line on that drawing. There are five gaming modes that range from simply placing a colored dot on the drawing to race the other dots already in play to a mode where you add lines to the drawing. Lines the Game is an easy game to pick up on, a little hard to describe but a great way to pass the time.

    As a Frenchman, I hate to admit it, but Americans are winning the Battle of Paris. Well… do I really hate to admit it, or am I secretly happy like all of my fellow Parisians? Picture this. I’m was back in Paris for vacation. It is early morning, 6:30 AM. I am looking for a taxi to go home. None. Or I should say – many, but all of them are full. So, still hopeful, I call a number to order a taxi from one of the two big companies; calling the number costs me 15 cents a minute, the taxi arrives 45 minutes later with already 12 euros on the meter. As I tell him I’m going to the suburbs,…

    I’m as confused as the next person about what I should be eating and drinking. Is red meat good for me, or not? Will coffee and beer make me die young, or give me super powers (I’m really, really hoping for the latter, as I’ve been training hard)? It seems like every day there’s another article about what is or isn’t good for me, and it just adds to my confusion. I’m hoping to wake up in the world of Woody Allen’s 1973 movie Sleeper, where steak, cream pies, and hot fudge provide the clearest path to good health. But I fear it will be more like the world suggested by David B.

    Millennials seem to be changing everything these days. Their spending power alone gives them the right to dictate what succeeds or bombs miserably in today’s marketplace. Take the craft beer category for example – it has exploded due to millennials revolting against traditional beer brands in favor of unique flavor profiles, local brew options, seasonal varietals and tasty beer served in really cool glasses. Slingshot recently reported that 87% of millennials drank a beer in the last week. And on a weekly basis, 54% of millennials are looking to try a new beer. Millennials want variety,…

    8 Jun 2015 | 6:59 am
    With nearly 70% of consumers gathering information online to influence their purchases, and nearly two-thirds engaging in social media daily, the word-of-mouth dynamic is shifting, and influencers of consumer product adoption are not who they used to be. Social media crowdsourcing has changed this dynamic; where once we had passionate mavens and social influencers pushing their preferred products forward, now we have the power of the online collective voice. Marketers have long used algorithms ranging from simple to complex in order to identify those target consumers who have the greatest…

    What’s the number one online marketing mistake that businesses make? If you said no SEO, poor web design or bad sales copy, you’re wrong.

In essence, Google is making pirated media sites so hard to find that they may as well not be online. But how do they do that?

Originally, the 67 percent denial rate was unearthed by a watchdog group. The message was that Google wasn’t really going its job and that people’s privacy still…

    How Bad Is Android Lollipop? via - When Google announced 5.0 Lollipop back at Google I/O, the general response of the public and media was very positive. Lollipop brought a very tasteful design language in the form of Material Design along with super smooth transition animations. The changes were mostly aesthetic and we won’t go into the numerous under the hood modifications here. Everything seemed too good to be true with Lollipop as it looked like a work of art in pure stock form. Unfortunately, performance wise, Lollipop has been disappointing. This has lead many to dub 5.0 as the…

    The Sorcerer

    All electronic devices need storage. PC storage is essential not just for casual end-users, but also for content makers, gamers, HTPC users and others. Some may not need a lot of storage as long as there’s good enough speed for quick boot and application load. Some need a lot of storage for archiving where speed isn’t really needed. Some need both and beyond. I’ve seen many types of users simply installing the cheapest possible option just to get things running which, unfortunately, does not give them the best speed that allows them to enjoy their system to its fullest…

    Modern desktop CPUs have come a long way in terms of performance and power consumption. Because of this, it helps in its own way to build either the smallest form factor systems or the best performance & expandability an end user can get. For both types of systems and anything in the middle, an aftermarket CPU cooler for additional cooling is needed with modern CPUs due to its multi-core design and the requirements to keep up with many types of CPU-intensive demands end-users have. Heat dissipation and TDP rises up when a processor is overclocked, and the CPU needs to be cooled down to a…

Those days earphones were almost exclusively made by American, European or Japanese companies like Westone, Audio Technica, Shure, Earsonics, JVC etc.In those days, earphone development was slow and you really needed to spend a good bit of $$$ to get some really good sounding earphones.That all changed once Chinese manufacturers broke into the earphone market.

    The Sorcerer

    A new report points out Intel will most likely not bundle its stock CPU cooler with its upcoming Skylake-S’ K series processor lineups. K series is long known to be unlocked processors which allow enthusiasts to fine-tune and increase the processor’s clock speed. As an optional solution to processor-only K series packaging, Intel may consider providing a closed-loop 120mm CPU liquid cooler as a separate package,  likely rated  for up to 130w TDP. The newer Skylake-S SKU will be using a new architecture and will be using a new socket LGA 1151.One of the possible reasons is that…

In a vote of 5-to-4 the Justices have ruled that the US Constitution grants same-sex couples the right to get married in all 50 states. A resounding victory for the gay rights movement.

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

    30 May 2015 | 2:44 am
    There’s no problem with having multiple ID cards. The real problem lies in the services linked to those cards: declining budgets, quality, coverage, scope, rising fees, and more expensive premiums. Also: the corruption and mishandling of state workers’ and private sector workers’ pension and health insurance funds. Those are the problems begging to be solved. There’s no problem either with non-registration of SIM cards. The real problem lies in the failure of authorities to use all tools at their disposal to dismantle, arrest, and prosecute syndicates.

    Remember when files had to be split between multiple floppy disks to move them between computers? Or the inconvenience of burning data to rewritable CDs? Thank goodness we’ve moved on from those primitive methods. The truth is, file transfers have never been faster than they are today.

    Aseem Kishore
    20 Jun 2015 | 1:40 pm
    Even with fast hardware and the newest operating system, logging into Windows can become painfully slow if there are a lot of programs that startup when Windows starts up. Note that I am not talking about how long it takes to boot Windows because that is a completely different beast. I’ve already written previously on speeding up Windows boot times, speeding up Windows 7 and speeding up Windows 8. Just reading those articles will help you speed up Windows guaranteed. One common theme you’ll see in those articles is managing startup items. As mentioned before, your Windows 8 or…

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

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

    If you’re reading this article, you came here looking for a way to “clean out” your Windows registry. Maybe someone told you that cleaning out the registry will fix computer performance issues or application crashes or something else that sounds really good. Unfortunately, many of these claims are false and could actually cause your computer more harm. The Windows registry is basically a really big database with a bunch of keys and values that stores data about everything that makes Windows and the applications installed on it run.

    People are usually knowledgeable enough to know that they should backup the files on their laptop or desktop computer. They will use external memory devices or cloud storage to save files, and set up automatic backups on their computer. But a lot fewer people are so vigilant about their mobile devices. Whether you have a smartphone or tablet, backing it up is just as important. You might have valuable conversations, photos and files on there, and there’s always a risk of losing them.

    Innovators might be stifled if fees for patents rise too high. European Patent Office European Inventor Award/Flickr, CC BY-NC-NDPatents are instrumental to our current innovation system. They encourage inventors to share their ideas, rather than keeping them secreted away, by offering the inventor exclusive rights to exploit their idea for a limited period. Yet they also cost money to administer, and much of this cost is passed on to the inventor. If that cost is too great, then there’s a risk the patent system will fail to do its duty.

  • Nanterro emerges from stealth with CNT based NRAM

    Nanterro just came out of stealth this week and bagged $31.5M in a Series E funding round.

They were founded in 2001, and are finally  ready to emerge from stealth. Nanterro already has 175+ issued patents, with another 200 patents pending. The NRAM is currently in production at 7 CMOS fabs already and they are sampling 4Mb NRAM chips  to a number of customers. NRAM vs. NAND…

  • Software: The Process Is the Constraint

    Joe Kinsella
    26 Jun 2015 | 8:04 am
    A few years ago I had a project manager from my team in Scotland send me a copy of Eliyahu Goldratt’s The Goal after learning I’d never read the 1984 classic. At the time, the constraint this team was struggling with was an ability to get software specifications defined that supported the product management requirements. After reading the book, I naturally tried to identify constraints in all my processes, putting them through the standard Theory of Constraints (TOC) steps: identify, determine how to exploit, subordinate all to the constraint, elevate, repeat. I learned quickly that TOC…
  • Test Driving Virtual Reality For Under $20

    When Google Cardboard was released last year, I remember thinking: interesting, but no time to play. I’d almost forgotten about the project when my 8th grader mentioned his interest in virtual reality last Saturday. Since my youngest son’s interest in technology does not extend much beyond keeping up with the latest news in baseball and playing sports video games, I ordered him a $15 kit to see what would happen. I arrived home Tuesday to find virtual reality glasses attached to my son’s face. His mind was blown by the whole Cardboard experience, from the virtual worlds he explored to…

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

    Confession: I have a love hate relationship with product documentation. While I can appreciate the value of well written technical documentation, I can’t help but feel it has a poor ROI these days. So when I started my current company, I committed myself to investing in an intuitive user experience instead of traditional online documentation. Unfortunately as the product became more complex and we either failed to contain the complexity or had features that could not be reduced to a simple UI, I found myself looking for alternatives. What follows is a blog I never thought I’d write: my…

    On a recent long drive to Upstate New York, my wife asked me for the books that impacted my life. I found it surprising how easily I could name each book, and was even able to recall the look and feel of my personal copy (some of which sadly did not survive my wife's many Stalinistic book purges). Here is my list: Four Steps to the Epiphany I’d spent years thinking great products came from great ideas. Steven Blank’s class notes turned book introduced me to the concept of customer-driven development as a means of discovering the great product. Years later Eric Ries would make this concept…

    There are two things you wouldn’t normally associate with Nintendo: new IPs not featuring that mustachioed Italian plumber, and angry shooters. Without so much as a warning toot at E3 2014, the company announced Splatoon, a game that is the strangest embodiment of both. Needless to say, people were fairly excited. And they had every right to be. While serious shooters like Halo, Call of Duty and the endless number of Tom Clancy inspired titles rule the blue and green consoles, Splatoon does things quite differently over on the Wii U.

Microsoft, Sony, HTC, and Valve are all backing the technology in different ways.

  • Are consumers about to become partners in the manufacturing process?

    Nur Bremmen: Staff reporter
    29 Jun 2015 | 9:30 pm
    The maker movement has seen a massive resurgence in recent years, allowing ordinary people to get involved in the technology manufacturing space. And with cheap, easily programmable products like the Raspberry Pi on the market, people don’t have to have all around expertise. Right now, it’s a subculture. But if a new report from Deloitte is to be believed, everyday consumers could soon become a crucial part of the manufacturing process as whole. According to the report, changes in consumer demand, the nature of products, the economics of production, and the economics of the supply…

    I want to bring together a couple of disparate ideas, some spiritual, some scientific, some empirical. By the end of this post I hope to have inspired you to consider meditation as a way of tapping into more fulfillment in your life.

  • Why I Deactivated My Facebook Profile

    Renee Schmidt
    22 Jun 2015 | 7:24 pm
    I deactivated my Facebook profile. Why? Because no one cares. Well, actually, if you’re reading this post and have found your way here to my personal blog, you may care. But by and large, people will not. If you desire my substantiation, or thoughtful reasons why you may want to do the same, here are a couple of reasons why I’ve taken  my ~10 year old profile down. 1. Too much noise and none of it is of particular value. I noticed myself busy with Facebook but not getting any particular value out of it. In fact, the investment of time eventually began to generate a negative…

  • Ramblings of an Entrepreneur

    Renee Schmidt
    8 Jan 2015 | 12:13 pm
    The life of an entrepreneur is not a particularly easy one. Doors open one day and for weeks or months new ones can remain shut. When doors are shut and no amount of knocking will open them, there’s nothing to lean on but certainty. Sometimes that certainty stems from a distant reminder of when a door unexpectedly flung open in the past. Other times that certainty borders on mania, stemming from nothing more than an inexplicable knowing from within. People sometimes remark to me of their admiration of how far I’ve come as an entrepreneur (how far is actually debatable, but that’s a…

    It’s been quite a while since I’ve picked up my proverbial pen and sat down to write a blog post.  Anyone who understands me well also understands that my mind is constantly abuzz with information, thoughts, and ideas. But for whatever reason I’ve lately been unable or unwilling to take a breather —and a moment—to express myself. It’s been a compounding problem, as I’ll soon explain.  Over lunch yesterday with a dear and long-time friend who I hadn’t seen in a while, I was offered some simple and valuable advice: just start writing. And so I am. In an increasingly…

    30 Jun 2015 | 5:19 am
    One the internet’s first communal acts of voyeurism was Jennicam, a site where a webcam captured snapshots of a woman’s life so jerkily that it was almost stop motion. We’re far beyond that now thanks to apps like Periscope, but online oddities can still grab your attention. Like this, an internet-connected robot roving around an apartment in Austria.

    The BBC Trust announced today that its youth-focused channel BBC 3 will cease broadcasting and move online in 2016, after a proposal was submitted by the broadcasters director-general Tony Hall. The Trust concluded that the channel’s audience figures were already dwindling and with a target viewership of people aged 16-34, online seemed like the most viable option. A BBC spokesperson said: We welcome the Trust’s provisional conclusion, which is the next step in delivering our vision for a ne

    It was bound to happen sooner or later, with Apple taking on the computer, the phone and the music industry, it is now set to change the watch industry forever and redefine what a watch actually is. With the release of the Apple Watch came an innovative way of telling the time. No longer will we look down at our wrist to simply be told that it is 10 past 2, now we can also use it to communicate with others through a tap, a sketch or even our heartbeat. Not only this, but we can also be motivated by our watch through a snapshot of our daily activity, get directions and speak to our own…
  • Will mobile ever truly replace desktop?

    24 Jun 2015 | 4:00 am
    When it comes to technology, there are two predominant types that usually whittle their way to the forefront of everyone’s minds. We’re talking about mobile technology, and desktop technology. Each of them have their benefits and their downfalls, and that’s what we’re going to explore in this blog. Will desktop reign superior? Or will mobile finally be the one that knocks desktops off the edge and into oblivion? We’re not psychic, but the trends thus far allow for some very interesting patterns to emerge. So let’s take a look at them before making an educated prediction as to…

    Recently Google added some new features to its applications Google Translate, its web and app-based automatic translation service, but how does it compare to human translation services? In the Verbalink test, the translation abilities of two Spanish translators, Adrianna and Gaby, were compared against Google Translate. The first section of the test compared translations of a document about Argentina’s National Beekeeping Council from Spanish to English. The second part of the test was a translation of one minute of spoken audio form Spanish to English. The results were judged on word…

    For those of us who are old enough to remember life before the Internet, the World Wide Web, mobile data, and always-on worldwide connectivity, the mere existence of an online existence can still sometimes feel like a huge privilege. After all, many of us came of age during the ‘dark days’ when we still had to make actual phone calls and write letters using ink and paper to make any sort of plans or communicate how our lives were going. For today’s college graduates, though, the Internet is just…part of life. For them, the Internet has always been around and, more…
  • Tools that are changing the way you watch TV

    29 May 2015 | 8:26 am
    The television viewing experience has gone through some major changes since its introduction in 1926, from humongous living room fixtures with small screens, all the way up to now with screens as flat as paintings and just as easily mounted. While the design of televisions seems to be in constant flux, it appears as though we’d hit a relative plateau in how we watch television. The VCR and DVD eras were huge, as well as the introduction of TiVo and DVR but outside of that the way we watch TV has pretty much remained constant. Well, it looks as that’s beginning to change as numerous…

    Apple's iOS platform has grown a tremendous amount over the past eight years.

    30 Jun 2015 | 5:28 am
    The music industry is in ruins. As we've gravitated over the last 10 years to purchasing, and now streaming, single songs as opposed to albums, record labels have taken a huge hit in revenue. But I actually still buy music. And I buy it on iTunes. I just like having something locally stored on my computers and devices so it's always there. If you don't have cell or Wi-Fi service, you still have your full music collection at your fingertips. But over the past couple of years, my usage of streaming services has grown. First Pandora, then Spotify. I didn't mess around with any of the junky…

    The term "game-changer" isn't always a meaningless buzzword, despite its overuse across every corner of the technology industry. There are, in fact, companies that truly have changed the game, and there is little question that Netflix can be counted among them. It wasn't the first site to offer streaming movies and TV shows, but it certainly popularized the practice of streaming your entertainment rather than watching it on TV. It has also had a profound impact on the pay TV industry, helping prompt a growing number of people to cancel their cable and satellite TV packages in favor of…

According to recent *statistics only 29% of employees are able to take a full hours’ break for lunch every day, resulting in lower productivity rates.

  • A Simple Markdown Spotlight Importer

    27 Jun 2015 | 11:33 am
    I noticed recently that Spotlight on Yosemite was no longer indexing my Markdown files. Since all my notes are in Markdown format, and Spotlight is how I find my notes, this was a big problem. Reinstalling my current set of Markdown editors did not help. This did. Huge thanks to Gereon Sommer for the idea in Mac OS X Spotlight Enhancement. The idea is to use a built-in importer, in this case RichText, to do all the work for you. Note that this will probably need to be repeated on each Operating System install or upgrade.

  • That Last Effin 20%

    I love creating new products. I love shipping new products more. That last effin 20% of work to create a new product that takes 80% of all the development time kills me. I really want to ship, but it has to be right. For those who do not know the 80/20 rule, it’s a variant of the misnamed Pareto Principal wherein Vilfredo Pareto created a mathematical formula in 1906 to describe the unequal distribution of wealth in his country, observing that 20% of the people owned 80% of the wealth. This was then applied to other areas and seemed to hold true. In reality, Tom Cargill had it right…

    Rust is a project I have been observing for a while now, an attempt to create a new, fast, safe, systems programming language to replace C++, but with better memory safety and a bullet-proof concurrency model. Last week, Rust hit 1.0, and I think I may start testing it out for highly threaded, small and fast calculation tools that I would normally write and fight in C++. If any of you are using it, please let me know what for in the comments. And before anyone points me at Google’s excellent Go language, I am already looking into it to speed up, parallelize and replace a ton of Ruby and…

    Rich McCormick
    30 Jun 2015 | 12:11 am
    The European Union reached an agreement today that will end roaming charges for people travelling within its 28 member countries as of June 2017. The new agreement, brought into effect after months of deliberation, also introduces the EU's first net neutrality rules. As part of the agreement, companies across the EU are not allowed to block or throttle online content, applications, or services — rules that the Union says will ensure every European has access to the open internet, and that all traffic is treated fairly. The EU's parliament had originally pushed for the ban on roaming…

The truth is that “native vs. web” is a false dichotomy - the correct path to take for development is always dependent on the circumstances.

The EU Commission wanted the rules to be implemented earlier, but the date was pushed-back in order to win support from the European Parliament and Council.  The rules will prevent mobile operators from charging huge premiums for use of their services when travelling to other European countries; which has led consumers to "bill shock" on their return.  Operators must replicate this model and put more effort into innovation…
