    The Pentax K-S1 does not look like your typical DSLR. Not just because the 20 megapixel camera is available in the sort of variety of colors we've come to expect from Pentax.

    After you become the first spacecraft to orbit an asteroid, what do you do for an encore? For ESA’s Rosetta comet probe, the answer is to get ready for the first soft landing on a comet nucleus.

    Cloud storage platform Dropbox announced today that it is offering a terabyte of storage for $9.99 a month, the same terabyte storage price set by competitors Google Drive and Microsoft’s One Drive. This is just the latest move in the great cloud computing war of 2014, as these three heavy hitters engage in a race to the bottom for the consumer’s storage gigabyte.

  • The Truth About DevOps: "IT Isn't Dead; It's Not Even Dying"

    Matt Asay

    With the rise of the modern developer, traditional IT operations is dead, right? Not even close, says Puppet Labs founder Luke Kanies. And he should know. Puppet is one of the technologies at the heart of the DevOps phenomenon, a merger of traditional IT and app development in which developers take on more responsibility for running the infrastructure that hosts their apps—in part, by automating it.See also: DevOps: The Future Of DIY IT?Yet Kanies believes that while there are "plenty of environments that can survive without ops for a while," they almost certainly don't look like the…

    Comcast, already less than loved, once again has some explaining to do.For years, the company has made sure policy makers and journalists know that it doesn’t apply “data caps.” Despite that, in some cities, Comcast imposes data limits on customers and, if they surpass that amount, issues them fines. This is what is generally known as a data cap virtually everywhere else, but Comcast has even submitted an article correction emphasizing that while it may have "data thresholds" or "flexible data consumption plans,” it is allergic to calling them data caps.

The loss would be incalculable no matter what the circumstances, but it feels especially jarring and surreal given the bright future Jim was building for himself. Along with his wife Charlotte, he’d just switched coasts from New York to San Francisco in order to start a media consultancy.

Normally, such events involve driving new cars. But when we hit the road during this one, I willingly sat in the back seat and fooled around with my phone and tablet–because the primary purpose of the event was to demonstrate the 4G LTE broadband and Wi-Fi hotspot features built into the cars.

    They weren’t the best thing he ever did, or the one which we’ll cherish the most. But with the sad news of the passing of James Garner, it’s worth pausing to remember the commercials he did in the late 1970s and early 1980s for Polaroid. And–this being Technologizer–it’s how we’ll memorialize him here. When it came to celebrity spokespeople, Polaroid wasn’t stingy: Laurence Olivier did the first ad for the SX-70 camera, and Danny Kaye touted the ill-fated Polavision instant movie system. Hiring James Garner was a similarly classy move, but the…

    The term “open journalism,” which has become a core principle of digital media for forward-thinking outlets such as The Guardian newspaper in Britain, is often used to mean journalism that engages with its audience (or “the people formerly known as the audience” as Jay Rosen calls them) and allows them to contribute to the process. But the idea of opening up journalism is also about what media companies can do beyond just producing articles or facts for people to consume — and a big part of that is opening up the data behind their stories.

    This post originally appeared at MattRichman.net and was re-posted at Tech.pinions with Matt’s permission. When Steve Jobs announced the transition from PowerPC to Intel processors in 2005, he revealed something that, in hindsight, seemed obvious to everyone who didn’t anticipate the switch: There are two major challenges in this transition. The first one is making Mac OS X sing on Intel processors. Now, I have something to tell you today: Mac OS X has been leading a secret double life for the past five years. We’ve had teams doing the “just in case” scenario. And our rules have…
  • Who Apple, Google and Microsoft Should Acquire Next

    On Tuesday night, TechCrunch’s Alex Wilhelm asked on Twitter: If you were Microsoft/Google/Apple what company would you buy? — Alex Wilhelm (@alex) August 27, 2014 It was late and I fired off a quick response but I thought it was a question interesting enough to be worth thinking and writing about here in more depth. So, for today’s column, I’m going to spend some time asking which companies Apple, Google and Microsoft should consider acquiring. As a bonus, I’m also going to include Amazon, which of course has just announced a major acquisition. I’ve…

    I’m writing this week’s column from the comfort of my hotel room in Shenzhen, China where I just witnessed first hand the evolutionary wave that has begun to take over the world of smart connected devices — phablets are king. Everywhere I turned in one of the many buildings stuffed full of electronics products and components for which this very large (~10.5 million) and surprisingly affluent[1] city is famous, I found more evidence. It wasn’t just the large screen dominated selection of legitimate and knock off phones offered by hundreds of different small vendors, it was also the…
  • The Unbearable Loneliness Of The Sharing Economy

    Brian S Hall
    25 Aug 2014 | 12:14 am
    The sharing economy promises the potential for riches, personal empowerment, new modes of work, and fear, the kind of fear that swells from a livelihood dependent upon algorithms, star ratings, and the feedback of strangers.  When we imagined the future, certainly starting from the point when the smartphone was born, few of us expected a world where in-kind tips and real time number crunching might determine where we live, how well we ate, the size of our home, the composition of our dearest friends. Of course, in a world where billions are virtually connected, all fighting over the same…

The solution is to utilize a lightweight, static website generator, which can make building and maintaining websites incredibly simple, as there is no database to slow requests down, and web servers automatically cache headers, reducing bandwidth usage Static sites also offer greater security, as they do not contain dynamic content, so are immune to the most common attacks.

    Another day, another story of stupid software patents getting stomped out of existence thanks to the Supreme Court's Alice v. CLS Bank ruling. As we've been noting, this ruling is looking like it's going to invalidate a ton of software patents (and that's a good thing). The latest one dumped was an attempt to patent bingo online. Yes, bingo. The lower court had already rejected the patent using previous Supreme Court rulings against patenting "abstract ideas." Now, with the Alice ruling in hand, the Appeals Court for the Federal Circuit (CAFC) completed the stomping out of the bingo patent.

    I completed the Bulldog 25K trail race this past weekend, August 23 2014. This was my longest and only second trail race. After doing the XTERRA Malibu Creek Challenge 22K race in May, I had started eyeing the Bulldog race and immediately started training for it. I took a bit of circuitous route though, doing a series of 5K races including the Father’s Day 5K race and three of the fun “Boogie Nights” 5K races that were held on Wednesday afternoons near Surfer’s Point in Ventura.

    After finishing the XTERRA Malibu Creek 22K race in May, I took some time to pick my next challenge. I finally decided on running my first 5K race, the inaugural Father’s Day 5K 10K Race in Ventura on June 15. This race had a couple of appealing aspects – it had a beach cruiser giveaway and the course happens to be on one of my favorite training routes. I also liked the idea of doing a 5K run to determine my “5K pace” which is helpful for planning workouts. For example, if I’m doing a certain type of interval run I can determine the pace based on an actual 5K…

This was my first of hopefully many trail races and it was a bit of a beast. I decided to do the race about three weeks ago and only had one chance to check out part of the course. I blogged about that experience in my pre-race report. Having never tried to tackle the infamous Bulldog Road portion of the course before, I tried to figure out how tough it…

I’m glad I did the training runs and tracked my heart rate because it helped me create a plan of attack for the race.

    There are different types of gamers – there are those who play games as a means to pass time or when they have a little bit of spare time, then there are those who play games all day either competitively or professionally. Now for the most part, Nintendo has catered to casual gamers and if you’ve ever played Nintendo games, you’ll know to be true. However it seems that Nintendo could be shifting their focus from the casual gamer to the core gamer, or at least that’s what Nintendo’s Shigeru Miyamoto seems to be hinting at.

Well we guess Sony is about to announce it anyway so it’s not that big of a deal. That being said, Sony has since released a new teaser video which seems to allude to not just the Xperia Tablet Z3 Compact, but it looks like a couple of new handsets as well.

According to the invite the company sent, they certainly have something planned for that day and there is a good chance that what they are unveiling could be the Huawei Ascend Mate 7. Now we have seen several leaked photos in the past, but thanks to new leaks, we get to look at the rear of the phone and its front. One of the features of the upcoming Ascend Mate 7 is its thin bezels, which as you can see in the image above are indeed pretty darn thin!

What happened is that as a developer, Smith drew plans for a game called Global Thermonuclear War which basically uses Google Maps to simulate what a nuclear war could look like between nations. On a whiteboard in his home, Smith had hand drawn a crude sketch of the word along with some lines to…

    Jack M. Germain
    27 Aug 2014 | 8:07 pm
    Imagine a world where playing Pong and Minecraft gives people the power to program their computers. That world is Kano. It took the idea behind Lego to teach computer programming by playing first-generation computer games. Kano launched on Kickstarter in November 2013. More than 13,000 people from some 50 countries raised $1.5 million in 30 days. Barely one year later, Kano is getting ready to deliver 18,000 preordered kits purchased for $129 each. The idea behind Kano Blocks came from the then 6-year-old son of cofounder Saul Klein.

    Chris Maxcer
    27 Aug 2014 | 2:54 pm
    While the Microsoft Surface Pro 3 is working to establish itself as the perfect tweener device between tablet and laptop, one hot rumor suggests that Apple's answer for more working space on an iPad will come in the form of a bigger screen -- 12.9 inches of touch-sensitive glory. The rumor comes from Bloomberg, which vaguely cited "people with knowledge of the matter." The only way it could get more vague than that is if the cited source were a little birdie that happened to fly by.

    Instagram has released Hyperlapse, a free iOS app that takes the jitters out of time-lapse video. Just two weeks ago, Microsoft demonstrated a similar technology that bears the same name. The Instagram app "is the most impressive effect to hit smartphone video in recent memory," said tech analyst Ross Rubin. Consumer video cameras have technology built into them to offset camera shake, but those algorithms, until now, couldn't cope with the combination of movement and acceleration of playback speed involved in time-lapse video.
  • Scientists Zap Diamond With Laser to Record Quantum Behavior

    Richard Adhikari
    27 Aug 2014 | 6:55 am
    Researchers recently developed a technique to record the quantum mechanical behavior of one electron in a nanoscale defect in diamond. The team used ultra-fast pulses of laser light both to control the defect's entire quantum state and to observe how the state of one electron in the defect changes over time. "This experiment uses a 'trapped' electron contained within the negatively charged NV center," said team leader David Awschalom, which "results in a well isolated trapped electron whose spin state can be used as our qubit."

    Open source software is now a force drawing enterprises and developers like a magnet. The factors pulling adopters into the open source fold are changing, though. Also changing are the attitudes of software developers and corporate leaders about the viability and adaptability of open source. Open source software is increasingly important within the corporation, as a recent survey conducted by Black Duck Software and North Bridge Venture Partners found. Developers and corporate leaders now view open source software as a strategic advantage.

    Growing up in Revere, Mass., taught me some very simple lessons about information security. Note: When people hear the name Revere, they think of these things: Paul Revere’s ride, guns, the IROC-Z automobile, lots of gold chains and language that doesn’t include the letter r at the end of a word. Information security? You probably think I’ve lost what little sanity I had. But I’m serious.

Case in point was the posting on Pastebin over the weekend where a group of “hackers” (wow, I use that term lightly) calling themselves “Wycked” posted a database dump from McDonald’s Malaysia. The premise being that they compromised the site. Small problem with that however. You see, the “Havij Injection Project” already posted that same database dump in February 2012.

The series launched well before the privacy debates that are now the norm. But series creator Aaron Sorkin was way ahead of his time all those years ago when he focused on Internet privacy in the season one episode “The Short List.” In the episode, Bartlet has nominated a man for the Supreme Court whose writings suggest a lack of regard for Americans’ right to privacy. During a heated Oval Office discussion, presidential advisor Sam…

Even scientists don’t know it all: they’re discovering new benefits all the time that go far beyond improving stamina or burning calories. So if you’re looking for a little extra motivation to lace up your shoes and hit the pavement (or the treadmill), or you just want to pat yourself on the back for a job well done, here are seven pieces of research that prove it’s a…

  • Good news: Data suggests that the Ice Bucket Challenge has peaked

    Okay, so we’re all pleased that the Ice Bucket Challenge is raising a lot of money for a good cause – but let’s be honest… isn’t it so last Thursday? Luckily, for those who have tired of it, Ice Bucket Fever appears to have peaked – with Google Trends showing downwards momentum from a peak on August 21st. It looks like it’ll be all over again quicker than you can say “Harlem Shake”. Twitter users too seem to have grown a little weary of the challenge – with less tweet interest too from the same day. Personally, I’m still holding out…

    As we close out Device Theft Awareness Month, we wanted to talk about laptop security. We've already covered the device theft statistics, alongside a bunch of ways to protect yourself from smartphone theft. Some may argue that notebooks are even more of a danger to lose than a smartphone, due to the vast amount of personal data stored on them that can be lost or fall into the wrong hands, as well as the cost of replacement. Let's talk about some of the ways to protect both your investment and your data. 1. Password protect your computer. Regardless of whether you use a PC, Mac, or…

    The founders of Siri are working on a new service called Viv that can link disparate sources of information together to answer questions: But Kittlaus points out that all of these services are strictly limited. Cheyer elaborates: “Google Now has a huge knowledge graph—you can ask questions like ‘Where was Abraham Lincoln born?’ And it can name the city. You can also say, ‘What is the population?’ of a city and it’ll bring up a chart and answer. But you cannot say, ‘What is the population of the city where Abraham Lincoln was born?’” The system may have the data for both…

    When I was growing up, I was fascinated by space. One of my earliest memories—and I know this is strange—is, when I was four or five years old, trying to grasp the concept of emptiness in space. I imagined the vast emptiness of space between galaxies, nothing but emptiness. I tried to imagine what that meant, but most of all, I tried to imagine what it would look like. That question, what color empty space would be, rolled around my brain the most. I couldn’t shake it. I would be doing something–playing Nintendo, coloring, whatever–and that question would pop into my…

    Monday’s WWDC Keynote was easily the largest set of changes made to Apple’s platforms since iOS 2 was announced in 2008. The effects of what was announced will be felt and discussed for years to come. There is a lot to think through and write about, which I will be doing in the coming weeks. However, something struck me during the keynote that felt fairly small but, upon thinking about it afterward, I think could end up being important to Apple’s future success.

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

Now LG published a teaser that shows a circular smart watch (quite similar to Motorola's Moto 360) that the company will unveil next week at the IFA trade show.It doesn't seem to use a flexible OLED (it seems like a flat display) - but it makes sense that if LG intends this watch to be always-on, with its mostly black UI, they will choose an OLED display as it will be much more efficient in this mode.Read more about LG to show a circular smartwatch next…

    I have an old Mac I’d like to install Mavericks on but I seem to have lost the admin password. How can I do this? Believe it or not, you don’t really need to be an admin to upgrade your Mac OS. However, you do need to boot right into the installer rather than try and launch it from your desktop. You might need a machine you DO have admin access to to create the bootable media, but that’s really all you need. Here’s what you need to do: Before being able to create a bootable OS X installer, you’ll need to do the following first: Use the Mac App Store to download…

My very first setup, many moons ago, consisted of a laptop with a couple of USB webcams connected to it. I was using software to upload an image to an FTP server every 30 seconds. It did the job, but was a pretty flimsy setup. Today I would recommend an out-of-the-box solution called Watchbot. I have one of these little babies set up at home, and it was a doddle to set up.

Bitcoin is a peer-to-peer digital currency that functions without the intermediation of a central authority. It has been called a cryptocurrency because it is decentralized and uses cryptography to control transactions and prevent double-spending, a problem for digital currencies. Once validated, every individual transaction is permanently recorded in a public ledger known as the blockchain. Payment processing is done by a network of private computers often specially tailored to this…

    Gaming mice are suffering from the same problem as every other piece of high-end equipment in the world: lack of uniqueness. After all, since their makers have to install every high-end feature they can think of, there's not much that can make a mouse truly stand out compared to the rest.

According to the company, American smartphone owners are quite willing to watch video ads of 15-30 seconds, but with a catch: 62% of them don’t care about the ads as long as they can get a free, streaming TV show or movie after the waiting. This beats only 56% of…

    Need someone to gauge the power in your back-hand shot, or check the effectiveness of your slice shot? Unless you hire a professional tennis coach, you’re on your own and no one will be shouting at you from the sidelines to correct your form or posture. Hiring a professional trainer can be a big blow to your budget but buying a digital coach on the other hand is definitely more affordable.

    Yo dog, I heard you liked security updates with flaws so we put more flaws in our reissued security update. The security bulletin says that "Microsoft strongly recommends that customers who have not uninstalled the 2982791 update [i.e., the old version, released on Patch Tuesday] do so prior to applying the 2993651 update [the new version]." This recommendation applies to users whether they are having problems with the old update or not. Note that Windows Update and Automatic Updates do not remove the old version. Comments

    Germany wants to ban after-hours e-mail and calls. Still perfectly fine with spam and telemarketers. Now a ban on office communications in the evening and during vacation time could even become law. German labor minister Andrea Nahles said in a Tuesday interview that the Federal Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (BAuA) was consulting on how such a law could be made – what thresholds would need to be mandated, and so on.

    According to this article Windows 9 will offer you the desktop or the modern UI, not both. There is no middle ground between devices that have the Modern UI and devices that have the desktop. You either have the desktop or you have the Modern UI, you cannot have both. As reported around a month ago, the Start Menu for desktop users in Windows Threshold can 'act' like a full screen Start Menu however, meaning if you want that functionality you can have it on the desktop.

    Everyone knows that robots are merely lifeless machines, no matter how amazing their abilities may be. However, you may be surprised at how often scientists replicate the features and capabilities of living creatures to increase robotic performance. In fact, there’s even a whole branch of robotics called “biomimetics” dedicated to that single premise. The term biomimetics means literally to “mimic life.” Insects are one form of life from which biomimetic scientists draw significant inspiration for new types of robotic technology.

    Professional web designers have been frustrated for years by coding. According to surveys conducted among web designers, about 70% of a budget is spent on coding. It is a major expense, increasing the cost of a project, thus eating into a designer’s profit margin. Coupled with the rapid growth of ecommerce and businesses needing an Internet presence, a designer’s workload can become problematic. Quick but professional turnaround is key, which leads some designers to visual website design platforms. Adobe, one of the most well-known companies in the design industry, recently…

    Ah, college. The embodiment of the open exchange of opinions and ideas, where today's youth go expand not only their horizons but their worldview. In this hopelessly idealistic portrayal, today's teens would grow into adults ready to face a world that isn't nearly as pleasant as previously indicated. In reality, many colleges are helicopter parents who believe the right to never be offended is guaranteed by the Constitution or, failing that, by a set of restrictive policies paired with disproportionate penalties. In reality, four words can get you five conduct charges. Here are the four…

    27 Aug 2014 | 8:41 pm
    It's not just the thin blue line insulating bad cops from accountability, it's the entire judicial system. From lower-level judges treating statements from police with amazing amounts of credulity even in the face of past misconduct or contradictory recordings to the nation's top court, the judiciary branch, giving police officers built-in defenses that far exceed those available to the public. An op-ed by Edwin Chemerinsky (lawyer and Dean of Law at the University of California, Irvine) notes that recent decisions by the Supreme Court have put even more distance between bad cops and…

    Another day, another story of stupid software patents getting stomped out of existence thanks to the Supreme Court's Alice v. CLS Bank ruling. As we've been noting, this ruling is looking like it's going to invalidate a ton of software patents (and that's a good thing). The latest one dumped was an attempt to patent bingo online. Yes, bingo. The lower court had already rejected the patent using previous Supreme Court rulings against patenting "abstract ideas." Now, with the Alice ruling in hand, the Appeals Court for the Federal Circuit (CAFC) completed the stomping out of the bingo patent.

    The last time I shaved was the morning of my father’s funeral, which was a month ago. I wanted to have a physical sign of my mourning. Originally I thought to shave my head, but the first thing that Dad said to me when I first arrived in the hospital to see him before he passed was “C.K., your hair is beautiful!” I decided to grow a mourning beard and give it at least a month. It’s been a month, and as you can see, I’m not genetically inclined to grow a beard. Or at least not quickly. It’s actually on the verge of becoming a real beard, and I’m not…

    Analog television is dead, but television antennas sure aren’t. Anyone with a modern television can grab an antenna and still pick up network television the good old fashioned, free way. If it means less money going to cable companies, that has to be a good thing, right? One such antenna is the Eclipse from Antennas Direct. The Eclipse can pull in digital HDTV network signals from over the air, giving you all of your local network stations for free. Granted, you still need to live close enough to those local networks’ broadcast towers—specifically, within 35 miles, the…

    Caroline Prince
    25 Aug 2014 | 12:37 am
    It has been well established that SEO is just as essential to a blog writer as it to is to a website content writer. If your blog content is not garnering a good readership despite the high quality of content in the post, it could mean that search engines are not finding your blog. On the other hand, sacrificing quality for the sake of SEO is not prudent, either. Ideally, striking the balance between quality and SEO would not only open your blog post to discovery, but can even lead to and sustain a loyal readership. Here are a few tips you can follow to make your blog post SEO-friendly: 1. It…

    Raja Manoharan
    23 May 2014 | 3:21 am
    App monetization is a hot topic today. More and more app developers are finding that their users don’t want to pay to download an app – they want it free, and they’re willing to suffer through advertising and other marketing methods to get that free price point. In fact, free apps routinely outperform paid apps in all categories save a couple (business utilities and navigation). Does that mean you’re doomed never to make a profit from your efforts? Not at all. Freemium has become the new standard, and some experts expect it to account for up to 93% of the global app market in just a…

  • Apple reportedly working on 12.9-inch iPad

    Apple is developing a larger iPad with a 12.9-inch display that it plans to begin manufacturing early next year, according to Bloomberg. It's not stated when the larger iPad will actually be released, but reports have swirled around the development of an iPad at this size for about a year now, so it's quite possible that it's finally headed toward a launch. Apple's existing iPads, the Air and the mini, have 9.7- and 7.9-inch displays. At 12.9 inches, this purported iPad would be closer in size to a laptop, like the MacBook Air.

By the time I could get around to responding to his challenge, the meme had grown to epic status. How epic?

This New York Times interactive map of recent fighter jet and drone strikes in northern Iraq makes me wonder how the use of visualized data used by news media in the form of maps would have changed the way people understood, in real-time, previous wars and conflicts. Yes, social media is changing the face of journalism, but so is data-driven journalism and visualized data of this quality. (Not to be confused with the lack of quality found in the vast majority marketing-oriented infographics.) A couple of weeks ago, for the Hammock…

    It is now easier than ever before to sell your music to a worldwide audience. I’ve been a musician since childhood, and while education, travel and then working for a living got in the way of my dream of becoming a guitar hero, I have never given up hope. Indeed, I’ve spent the last couple of years writing and recording an eclectic mix of songs. The next obvious step was to find some way to get them heard, which is where the advent of social media came into its own.

  • How to Load Disqus Comments on Click

    25 Aug 2014 | 4:06 am
    The comments on my website are powered by Disqus, the most popular commenting platform that offers a lot more features than what the native commenting engines of Blogger or WordPress have to offer. For instance, Disqus lets me moderate discussions or reply to comments via email itself and commenters can use their existing Facebook or Twitter accounts to sign-in for commenting on web pages. The Disqus widget is loaded asynchronously meaning it downloads the JavaScript in parallel and would not therefore impact the load time of your web pages. That said, the widget still adds lot of…

  • How to Easily Recognize Web Colors from RGB Codes

    Amit Agarwal
    18 Aug 2014 | 4:35 am
    If you’ve ever customized the design of your HTML website, or tried changing the background color of your social profiles, you’ve probably encountered Hexadecimal color codes. These are a string of 6 characters – like “0066FF” – that you know represent colors but we rarely make the effort to understand them. Here is a simple guide to help you recognize web colors more quickly from their RGB codes. No more guessing or consulting the color palettes.

    Twitter, for many, has become a preferred medium of communication. Your email messages may never get read or, in the worst case, may get caught in the Spam folder but tweets and @mentions are very likely to get noticed. When you are travelling or going on a vacation, with limited access to the Internet, you often create an “out of office” reply in your email program to let people know that you won’t be able to respond to them right away. How about doing something similar for people who are trying to reach you through Twitter? What will the Twitter Auto-Responder do Unlike…

  • Microsoft finally cracks down on deceptive Windows Store 'crap apps'

    28 Aug 2014 | 4:39 am
    So-called deceptive “crap apps” have always plagued the Windows Store. But now, Microsoft appears to be finally ready to do something about them. In a blog post late Wednesday, Microsoft said that it had removed 1,500 deceptively named apps as part of a policy shift to crack down on developers “trying to game the system with misleading titles or descriptions,” the company said. A year ago, Microsoft publicly said that the Windows Store has more than 100,000 apps, and it’s unlikely that that number has climbed higher than 200,000 apps by now. But as far back as Oct. 2012—before…

The complaint against Qualcomm in the EU comes as Qualcomm finds itself mired in an investigation from Chinese authorities over patent disputes and so-called abuse of its dominant position.

When I first started doing web hosting I had it all under one roof (except creativecloudtv.com because it’s hosted by my podcast hosting company libsyn.com). I was using Network Solutions for all of it including email. While Network Solutions did all I needed…

  • What’s In My Bag?

    Terry White
    17 Aug 2014 | 9:11 pm
    The good folks over a shotkit.com recently featured me on their site and the contents of my camera bag. You can see all the other photography gear that I use here. People are always asking what kind of gear I shoot with. On the flip side of that coin when I’m out on tour people are always asking about the gear I use on stage to do my presentations. So I thought it was time for a “What’s in my bag?” update. My backpack weighs a ton. Every now and then I take everything out and try to only put back in the things that I’m using on a regular basis. That time has come…

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

  • Doing The Work

    Alex Goldfayn
    25 Aug 2014 | 12:38 pm
    I have clients who diligently do the work — grow their lists, communicate value to them, collect testimonials, communicate them, ask for referrals, etc. — and enjoy revenue growth of 20% or more in their first year with me. Almost always, this is millions of dollars in new sales. I have other clients who listen to my advice, but do not apply it. They don’t change their behavior much, and do not enjoy the results they deserve. Further, their market does not get to benefit from their enormous value. You already know what to do. The question is, are you doing it? The distance…
  • Why?

    Alex Goldfayn
    18 Aug 2014 | 12:09 pm
    We are not a road-trip family — we fly — but last week we drove from Chicago to Niagara Falls and Toronto. Which meant more than 20 hours in the car round-trip and between destinations. With two 5-year-olds. And so, they asked “why?” approximately 200,000 times. And we answered. Kids don’t hesitate to clarify, dig deeper, and understand precisely. Adults do. We don’t ask “why” for reasons that boil down to self-limiting beliefs: we don’t want to impose, offend, or project that we do not understand. These are confidence and self-esteem…

    Alex Goldfayn
    11 Aug 2014 | 12:50 pm
    When you tell people you’re great, you’re selling. People expect that of you, and take it with a grain (or several grains) of salt. Also, although marketing is no place for modesty, personal moderation, discomfort with boldness, “preferring to let our work” do the talking hold us back from blowing our own horn. All of which is why we must obtain and communicate the thoughts and feelings of our happy customers. With testimonials and case studies, we must let our customers tell their peers about what they love best about us. There is nothing we can say that is more…

    People keep talking about Vice President Joe Biden’s tendency to commit “gaffes”. And the man a heartbeat away from being the leader of the free world has made a few. But lately, it is another prominent Democrat who finds himself needing to pause to remove his foot from his mouth. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., is issuing apologies for jokes he made about Asian-Americans during a speech before the Las Vegas Chamber of Commerce. During his comments before the Chamber Reid has said, “The Asian population is so productive. I don’t think you’re smarter than anybody…

    Italy’s Il Tempo newspaper reported on Monday that Pope Francis is a target of the Islamic State militant group. According to the article, Israeli sources believe that Pope Francis is “in the crosshairs of the ISIS” as the “greatest exponent of the Christian religion” and is considered a “bearer of false truth”. However, the Vatican has released a statement to the Catholic News Agency that this is not true. “There is nothing serious to this. There is no particular concern in the Vatican. This news has no foundation,” a Vatican spokesman said. Il Tempo had warned that the…

    “There’s a lotta things about me you don’t know anything about, Dottie. Things you wouldn’t understand. Things you couldn’t understand. Things you shouldn’t understand.” Paul Reubens is most widely known for his role as Pee-wee Herman in the memorable children’s television show Pee-wee’s Playhouse, as well as Pee-wee’s Big Adventure, an early film by Tim Burton. Though the Pee-wee character is seen as droll and silly, there has always been something of a menacing undercurrent about the way Reubens plays that role. You were just sure that, any minute…

  • Samsung announces the Gear S: A Tizen Powered Curved Smartwatch

    Arpit Verma
    28 Aug 2014 | 12:24 am
    One of the key strategies that Samsung seems to follow for any new category is to literally saturate it with enough product releases that if not all, at least one hits the relentless success chord. We saw that with the smartphones where every second day, a new device was launched until it became blatantly clear that was not working, we saw that with tablets which never worked, and to a smaller scale we are seeing that with watches now. It has hardly been an year since Samsung introduced its first smart watch, the Gear and since then we have already had about 5 other iteration and that is not…

    HTC despite not being always in the green of profit have made fine devices. It was no surprise that the HTC M7 swept away a lot of awards for mobile last year and you would expect the latest flagship, HTC M8 to bag a few this year too. However, one thing that usually goes unnoticed is that HTC makes some really good budget devices too. We have had the likes of Desire 816 in the past which are fine phones. Keeping in line with that HTC has announced the Desire 510, yet another mid range budget smartphone, but with the LTE radio on board. In terms of looks, the Desire 510 looks a bit like the…

    Samsung initiated the whole concept of phablet devices with the Galaxy Note 1 about three years ago. Back then, everybody including me, ridiculed at the idea of having a 5.5 to 6.5 inch devices as it just looked way too big. Worth remembering, it was the day and age, where 3 to 3.5 inch smartphones were considered ideal. Since then  though, phablet has become a niche category in itself and plenty of OEMs have been working on phablets of their own. However, Samsung remains the market leader in such devices and are expected to announce the Note 4 at IFA 2014 next month. Needless to say, the…

A finding in a recent study by researchers at MIT’s CSAIL (Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Lab) indicates the possibility of such working environment in the future. The research team conducted an experiment where a robot and humans had to work side by side; the test reveals the fact that, in certain…

    We have seen keyless padlock with number combination about half a century ago, but this one can be operated remotely. Look, it’s Noke (pronounced, “no key”)! It’s a Bluetooth padlock. It looks like an ordinary master lock but instead of using a physical key, it can be unlocked simply by keeping your phone in your pocket. Considered as the world’s first Bluetooth padlock, Noke is created by FUZ Designs and is being funded through Kickstarter that already raised more than $89,000 out of a $100,000 goal with 29 days still remaining The Company’s Android and iOS apps make the system…

Here’s a real example of an existing website that’s a few years old and does not have a mobile or responsive site: Enough said? This website is on track to have more mobile users than desktop users very soon, so it makes sense that they should have a mobile website.

  • Olympus's new PEN E-PL7 caters to the smartphone and selfie set

    Gadjo Cardenas Sevilla
    27 Aug 2014 | 10:00 pm
    By Gadjo Cardenas Sevilla Instead of trying to compete with smartphones, Olympus is finding the best ways to integrate and enhance both experiences. It's no secret that smartphones have been eroding the sales of traditional DSLRs and point and shoot digital cameras into oblivion. The convenience of carrying a capable and connected large megapixel camera built-into a smartphone, has made it difficult for camera companies to adjust. Olympus has managed to keep innovating, and their latest crop of PEN ILC's offer features that complement rather than compete with smartphones.

  • Shift Happens: Apple + IBM. This Time It’ll Be Different.

    Jean-Louis Gassée
    24 Aug 2014 | 11:53 am
      Strategic Alliances and other grandly named partnerships never seem to live up to their florid marriage announcements. Apple and IBM are it – again – but this time, Apple is the larger, more prosperous company, and IBM is trying the bad old recipe of regaining growth by cutting down. Let me slip into something more comfortable: Devil’s Advocate robes. Thus togged out, I will explain why this Apple + IBM rapprochement won’t work – or, worse, it will. First, the clash of cultures.

      The modern smartphone is 7 years old and yet, when it comes to designing mobile applications, we are still barely scratching the surface. Today we’ll see how harnessing technology already embedded in a phone can unleash great potential.  A mobile news app has simple goals: Capture and retain reader attention, and repeat the process, several times a day. Pretty straightforward. But not that simple in the real world. For a news provider, the smartphone screen is the the most challenging environment ever seen.

    10 Aug 2014 | 11:53 am
      With one million titles and no human guides, the Apple App Store has become incomprehensible for mere mortals. A simple solution exists: curation by humans instead of algorithms. Dear Tim, You know the numbers better than anyone — I don’t need to quote them to you — but we all know that the iOS App Store is a veritable gold mine. Unfortunately, the App Store isn’t being mined in the best interests of Apple’s customers and developers, nor, in the end, in the interests of the company itself. The App Store may be a gold mine, but it’s buried in an impenetrable jungle. Instead…

    Jean-Louis Gassée
    3 Aug 2014 | 8:51 am
    When Apple announced its 64-bit A7 processor, I dismissed the speculation that this could lead to a switch away from Intel chips for the Macintosh line for a homegrown “desktop-class” chip. I might have been wrong. “I don’t know exactly when, but sooner or later, Macs will run on Apple-designed ARM chips.” Thus spake Matt Richman in a 2011 blog post titled “Apple and ARM, Sitting in a Tree”. Richman explained why, after a complicated but ultimately successful switch from PowerPC chips to Intel processors in 2005, Apple will make a similar switch, this time to ARM-based…

    I decided to purchase a Microsoft Surface Pro when it made a debut last month. It seemed like the perfect device which could function both as a laptop and a tablet. Since it features a full-blown Windows 8 Pro operating system, I could use for just about anything including Photoshop or running Ubuntu in Virtualbox when coding. The 128 GB model goes for about $999. Throwing in a type keyboard brings the price tag up to about $1,100. The Intel i5 processor, a full HD display, and a USB 3.0 port makes the package even more attractive. A comparable 11-inch Macbook Air with a 128 GB SSD still…
  • How To Build A Dream Team

    Guest Author

    Guest Author: Pierre-Simon Ntiruhungwa (@pierresn) is a French student in ESCP Europe Business School, currently interning in Ifeelgoods in the San Francisco Bay Area. He is the co-founder of the student organization Silicon Students and the summer program Startup Dream Team. Ideas are cheap. They are often stolen and copied easily. Simply having a good startup idea doesn’t guarantee success for entrepreneurs. What matters is the ability to execute that idea and transform it into a real company. This statement is common sense in the startup world and this is why Startup Dream Team,…

    Rajeev Rajagopal

    Schizophrenia is a brain disorder that affects the way a person acts, thinks, and sees the world. Several observational studies have investigated the association between vitamin D status and schizophrenia. The November 2013 issue of Schizophrenia Research carries a study that found vitamin D deficiency to be linked to the first episodes of psychosis (FEP). Another very recent study, published online on July 22, 2014 in the Journal of Clinical Endocrinology and Metabolism highlights the role of vitamin D in psychiatric health.

  • AP – NORC Survey Observes How Americans Evaluate Physician Quality

    Meghann Kiernan
    25 Aug 2014 | 1:54 am
    The Affordable Care Act focuses on expanding health insurance coverage to millions of Americans. Americans while getting enrolled in specific health benefit plans and choosing physicians, must consider whether the physician will be able to provide high-quality care. Often, when it comes to defining a quality healthcare provider there is considerable difference between how experts and consumers actually define it. Being licensed doesn’t necessarily mean that a doctor is capable and up-to-date on all best practices. A new poll conducted by the Associated Press-NORC Center for Public…

Since 2007, the organization has only declared such emergencies two other times: for the 2009 swine flu pandemic and for polio in May 2014.

    The main objective behind the federal government’s initiative to provide incentives to push hospitals and physicians to use electronic health records (EHR) was to improve efficiency and patient safety thereby reducing total healthcare costs. Inappropriate use of the EHR system has been a strong concern since 2012 with the Departments of Justice and Health and Human Services alerting hospitals about the wrong use of this system. Hospitals that used this system were billing Medicare for a significantly more amount than hospitals using paper records. They were charging higher for a large…

A recent report reveals that the new enrollments in Obamacare’s Medicaid expansion and other healthcare programs aimed for the poor people have reached 6.7 million after the implementation of healthcare reforms last year. The new figure that mainly comprises state Medicaid plans (that existed before Obamacare) and the Children’s health insurance plan, showed an enrollment increase by about…

    If you’re like me, one of your favorite activities is upgrading Nomad or ConfigMgr to take advantage of new features. In a simple lab environment that’s quick and easy to do, but experience tells us that in production things are not always quite so simple. So what should you do when planning your production Nomad upgrade process? The first step is to read our recently released Nomad Upgrade Guide. Nomad upgrades are usually easy but you might need to address a consideration or two in the course of your upgrade, depending on your scenario. As with any project, you should start with a…

Our Nomad documentation has always been very complete but one topic we wanted to address even more thoroughly was upgrades and related scenarios.

So what might complicate your Nomad upgrade, or your ConfigMgr (SCCM) upgrade that includes Nomad? The ultimate…

To aid that process I’m pleased to announce the availability of a comprehensive new technical whitepaper, our “Nomad Upgrades Guide”, available here: Nomad Upgrades Guide – 1E Resource Center I’ve worked with my fellow product manager, Paul Thomsen, and a broad team of…

The MIT Media Lab’s Social Computing group is meshing data and design to produce a cascade of maps that humanize and personalize  selected creative cities. They call each map an “atlas of experience.” Their maps, produced though a project called You Are Here, target the kinds of detail that can matter in urban living.

    9 years ago today, on 17th August 2005, I was just one of seventeen brave (or foolhardy) people who announced that they were leaving the very successful Mambo project and starting out on their own. It was a snap decision and truth be told if we had stopped to think about how much work lay ahead of us in the coming months I suspect we might not have been in such a rush. We were greatly helped at the time by Eben Moglen of the Software Freedom Law Centre and I believe we were their first "clients".

Joomla has an excellent documentation resource but I think it is fair to categorise these docs mainly as "reference" material and not "user guides".

    15 Apr 2014 | 8:42 am
    Some people are able to open up a graphic editor and produce stunning original artwork for their web sites. I'm not one of those people. For me it's usually a case of searching the net in the hope of finding the perfect graphic that exactly matches my needs. Usually I fail in that search and end up with the closest thing I can find. Yesterday I found a new web site that does all the hard work for you.

Nazareno that “we’re going through a profound and painful transformation to digital technologies.”  He continued to explain that in addition to making the move to a digital corporate culture and architecture that for traditional telcos to succeed they will need to “master new skills, including new partnership skills.” That direction drives a line straight down the middle of attendees at the conference.  Surprisingly, many companies attending and…
  • What Value Can I Expect from Cloud Computing Training?

    Administrator
    30 Aug 2013 | 6:31 pm
    Normally, when we think of technical-related training, images of rooms loaded with switches, routers, and servers might come to mind.    Cloud computing is different.  In reality, cloud computing is not a technology, but rather a framework employing a variety of technologies – most notably virtualization, to solve business problems or enable opportunities. From our own practice, the majority of cloud training students represent non-technical careers and positions. Our training does follow the CompTIA Cloud Essentials course criterion, and is not a technical course, so the non-technical…

    All businesses need to appear near, or at the top, of search engine results lists.

    John Myers
    18 Aug 2014 | 9:31 am
    In skiing, the “black diamond” run or ski slope is often referred to as “high risk/high reward.” You receive lots of “reward” skiing the black diamond slopes, but you have a significant amount of “risk” associated with variable terrain, such as the presence of trees and the possibility of injury. However, the black diamond slopes are very fun to experience, and you can mitigate the risks with preparation, practice, and a really good skiing helmet. Data science is one of those “high risk/high reward” concepts in technology. An organization can gain huge financial rewards by…

The company appears to be enjoying a bit of a renaissance, looking to redefine its role in the data center as virtualization makes headway into the network domain under the banner of SDN. While true production SDN remains in its infancy, with no single approach emerging to solve all the ills of the network world, there is no debating that programmability will…

As a product manager in storage for 20 years, I had the opportunity to see some pretty interesting changes in the market. Events such as the move to distributed computing, the advent of technologies like virtual disk and snapshot copies and moving from large single large expensive disk (SLEDS) with huge 11” platters to a single solid state PCIe card with 6TB of capacity. Disk storage costs have fallen from over $1,000 per GB to under $.10 per GB with 4TB SATA drives.

    Dominique Vernier’s blog, “Leverage SaaS and PaaS to speed up application development,“ provides an excellent overview of IBM’s cloud-based approach to software development and delivery. IBM’s introduction of the Bluemix Platform as a Service (PaaS) to the marketplace earlier this year builds on the existing capabilities of Jazz (/jazz.net/) introduced in 2008. While Jazz addresses the requirements and design stages of the application lifecycle, Bluemix extends IBM’s cloud-based capabilities to development, testing, and production as well. The Bluemix PaaS runs on Cloud Foundry…

    Daniel Dekański

    Fonts have always been a vital part of brand identity and UI design. With the development of modern Web standards it has become easy to implement customized fonts in websites, but native mobile apps somehow still lag behind in this area. Platform guides warn us against unleashing our creativity in that aspect and state that the built-in fonts have been optimized for memory and performance constraints of mobile devices. I think today, with more and more horse power under the hood of our latest mobile gadgets, we should not limit ourselves to the modest assortment of default typefaces. Going…

    Have you ever heard of the business model canvas? If so, then you know that it is basically a board of basic elements which need to be evaluated in the process of creating a product and the business around it. Have you ever wondered if such a model could be created for a software design process? I did and here are my thoughts on it. Obviously a detailed implementation cannot be touched by such a “bird’s eye architecture-cheat-sheet” but I think a general description with some design tips can be achieved.

    When ride-sharing company Lyft announced its new service Lyft Line — which, for those unaware, lets people headed in the same direction share the cost of a ride together — the first thing I thought of was the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC). Weird, I know. But CPUC was behind last year’s rule legitimizing for-profit ridesharing companies like Lyft, Sidecar, and Uber for legal operation within the state. Without that action, it’s safe to say an idea like Lyft Line would’ve been a major uphill climb — if it saw the light of day at all. At the announcement of the new…

Now, it seems social media may be simplifying the ecommerce channel, giving consumers the ability to make purchases directly in the ads and posts for products they see in their feeds. Both Facebook and Twitter have now begun testing “buy now” buttons to their sites and apps. In both instances, consumers have the ability to click a “buy” button within an ad (which can be prompted to appear based on a…

    18 Aug 2014 | 11:45 am
    Twitter is one of those things you’re “supposed” to do. It’s a way to reach your audience and promote your brand, essentially for free. But how much are you actually reaching people? Do your tweets get read, do your links get clicked, and would paying to promote tweets be a great marketing spend or a total waste of cash? Until recently, those are questions most business owners couldn’t answer. That’s because “organic” tweets—the ones you send out every day, without paying anything—had no analytics support. No data. No way to see what was working. Twitter changed that a…

But, I'm not making video games reviews here. The thing is that while checking the Gamespot review, I noticed a very nice and original loader somehow inspired by the above tagline.

Mints were placed in bathrooms lest anyone’s breath smell of kimchi. Guards lined the road to greet his limo and a long, red carpet was rolled out.

    It looks like Apple will launch its new iPhone 6 in three colors: silver, gray and gold. (Or silver, black and gold depending on your interpretation of Apple's color scheme.) Photos of component parts for the new iPhone leaked onto the French web site Nowhere Else. We can't confirm whether the photos are true, but 9to5Mac thought they were newsworthy also. The color scheme is not a huge surprise, because the iPhone 5S came in silver, gray and gold, too. What Apple fans will be rejoicing over, however, is confirmation that there will be a gold iPhone 6. By far the most interesting part of the…

Log in to your Twitter account and go to: http://analytics.twitter.com/. A dashboard will then display the "performance" of all your recent tweets.

    The Sorcerer
    27 Aug 2014 | 2:43 pm
    Intel talked a lot about the Haswell Refresh processors codenamed Devil’s Canyon, and they were very excited about it . The newer Haswell (codename: Devil’s Canyon) came with certain improvements in comparison to earlier processors. Difference was mostly on the physical side of the processor. Intel used a ‘next generation thermal interface material’ in the hopes that it would please enthusiasts and overclockers who found that older model Haswell processors used a thermal paste under the integrated heatsink, though many would have preferred to see Intel using solder.

Both of these processors will be clocked at 4.10 GHz base clock and 4.30 via TurboCore. Other than that, its nothing new.

    So you just bought a new computer and can’t wait to start using it right? So you fire up that bad boy eagerly awaiting the cool new features and instantaneous loading of programs with a single click of the mouse, but what do you get? Annoyingly and shockingly, your new computer boots up and greets you with popup ads, lots of shortcuts to useless programs and useless services with enough icons on your desktop to fill up half the screen on your new widescreen display! It’s 2014 and the only computer I have bought that doesn’t have any bloatware on it is the Google Chromebook.
  • How to Recover Accidentally Deleted Files

    If you’re reading this article, you’ve probably deleted something important on your computer that you need to recover ASAP! Hopefully, the files or folders that are now gone were deleted only a short while ago because the more data that gets written to the disk, the more chance that the section of the hard drive that contained the data will be overwritten with new data, thereby making your recovery chances a lot lower. Before we get into the different ways to recover deleted files, first make sure you check a couple of things: 1. Always check the recycle bin to make sure your…

    Trying to figure out where all of your hard drive space has disappeared to is often quite a challenge in Windows with all of the hidden folders and temp directories! As an IT Professional, one tool that I use almost every other day is TreeSize, a small utility that tells you exactly where all of your hard drive space is currently allocated. Using TreeSize Free edition, you can immediately see which folders and sub-folders are taking up the most hard disk space. Once you have that info, it’s a piece of cake to quickly free up hard drive space taken up by temp files or other useless data.

    Here’s a quick how-to for anyone who wants to split their computer screen monitor into two so that they can view two applications side-by-side. I’ll also be talking about how you can split your screen across dual monitors and split your wallpapers so you can have a different wallpaper on each monitor. The first how-to is really only useful if you have a widescreen computer display. Otherwise, splitting a normal monitor will not leave enough real estate for the two applications. However, if you have a 15″, 17″ or higher widescreen display, you can easily split the…

The easiest method is to simply copy the embed code from the YouTube video and paste it into PowerPoint.

    Some clients just suck. There’s really no nice way to put it. Learning how to expose and avoid them BEFORE you let them hire you will keep you from tearing your hair out (and stave off the gray hair for just a few more years). Of course, it’s fun to joke about it… but dealing with hellish clients is actually serious as… well hell! That’s because getting good at avoiding clients who just don’t fit well with your personality and how you operate will help you avoid getting seriously burnt out and overwhelmed. And, it’ll keep you loving your job which…

How do I fill them out in a way that’s honest but more impressive than leaving them blank?” Here’s the simplest way I can put this… Your unique situation can and SHOULD be positioned to highlight your advantages. For example, when I started looking to get hired for freelance IT jobs I was completely self-taught and I believed that was a disadvantage. I believed coders who had gone to school were in a better position than me and would have an easier time convincing clients to hire…

Given our sun is a star and stars are suns, explaining the source of the sun’s energy would help us understand why stars shine. An early explanation offered as to why the sun shines came from the Greek philosopher Anaxagoras. In around 450 BCE he taught that the sun shines because it is a “red-hot” stone. During the mid-19th century, German physician Julius Mayer estimated that if the sun were a giant lump of burning coal it could only shine for some…

    28 Aug 2014 | 4:45 am
    Resizing and repositioning windows on the PC desktop is such a fundamental task that you’ll almost do it without thinking. Move the mouse to the title bar/ border, click, drag, release. Very basic, very simple -- but there might still be room for improvement. KDE Mover-Sizer is an open source, portable tool which brings a common Linux desktop trick to Windows. Instead of having to move your mouse cursor to the title bar or border, you just hold down the Alt key, then left-click anywhere inside a window and drag to move it, right-click and drag to resize it.

    One of the key ways to get people to buy a product is to actually make it possible for them to buy it. It sounds obvious, I know, but even a company as big as Microsoft has been having trouble fathoming this simple idea. Every Surface model has launched in a limited number of markets, taking its sweet time to hit new ones. Surface Pro 3 is no exception, but at least the delay is much shorter in its case. Starting today, a little over two months after Surface Pro 3 went on sale in Canada, Japan and US, the Windows 8.1 device is available in 25 additional markets. What's more, also today, the…

  • How does the Huawei Ascend P7 compare?

    Tim Dickinson
    21 Aug 2014 | 6:06 am
    Telecommunications giant Huawei is making another push to grab some of the smartphone market share outside of China with the Ascend P7, but how does the flagship 4G smartphone compare to the leading smartphones on the market today? Design Huawei describes the phone as lighter and thinner than the competition, and they may well be right with the P7 just 6.5mm thick (139.8 x 68.8 x 6.5 mm) and weighing in at 124g. That makes it slimmer than the iPhone 5S, Samsung Galaxy S5 and Sony Xperia Z2, and lighter than its Android competitors as well. However, beyond just its size there is little in…

    Mobile phone network EE has made a controversial move by offering customers the ability to “skip the queue” for support, angering many customers. Premium support is not a new idea, but for a company where forums are filled with complaints of people struggling with slow speeds or getting any connection at all, it looks very much like giving two fingers to their customers. People put up with poor support (and paying for it) from companies such as Ryan Air because they are offering budget basement prices – you get what you pay for. However, EE is not marketing itself as the…
