    Breitling appears to be targeting a pretty niche market with its Superocean Chronograph M2000. It might look like just another upmarket diving watch, but this particular timepiece is rated water-resistant to depths of 2,000 m (6,600 ft), so it seems to be aimed at record-breaking mixed-gas deep-sea divers and people who would take comfort in knowing that the watch they lost overboard is still ticking on the bottom of the ocean...

    For most of human history, we've lived in groups a lot larger than our family unit, and reaped considerable benefits from it. Modern urban life, on the other hand, has moved in a different direction; privacy, disconnection, self sufficiency. Eco-village communities are aiming to buck that trend, and to that end Smart Urban Villages is planning to create medium-density, sustainably designed housing communities with optional shared meals, mortgage-free long term leases and pools of shared vehicles to cut down on car ownership costs...

  • Supreme Court Rules In Favor of Patent Troll

    26 May 2015 | 7:01 pm
    An anonymous reader writes: The Supreme Court ruled today (PDF) that Cisco Systems can't skip out of a patent suit against them from patent troll Commil USA. The case reached the Supreme Court because Cisco argued it had a "good faith belief" that the patent they were infringing was invalid. The justices voted 6-2 that such a belief didn't matter if they were indeed infringing. The Supreme Court's opinion is that a company must know of the patent it's infringing, and that their product infringes upon the patent — which, at least, is more than what Commil was pushing.

Convicted terrorist Khaled Sharrouf, 33, fled Australia in December 2013 and his family — a wife, two teenaged girls and three young boys — followed. He joined the fight of the Islamic State (ISIS) and became known globally for his use of social media to spread a disturbing photo of his seven-year-old son holding a severed head See also: Details emerge about bizarre life of Sydney siege gunman At the time, the U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry…
  • Amy Schumer acts as Bill Cosby's defender in public opinion court skit

    26 May 2015 | 8:50 pm
    "I believe it was my mentor, the great Bill Cosby, who said, 'drink this!'" Amy Schumer began her Cosby bit with a short standup set on her show Inside Amy Schumer on Tuesday. The 77-year-old comedian has recently been accused of allegedly drugging and raping dozens of women throughout his career. In October 2014 the allegations gained traction after comedian Hannibal Burress joked about Cosby on stage and the clip went viral on YouTube.

  • The Price Of Ignoring Free Internet Security Advice: Billboards Of Goatse

    Timothy Geigner
    26 May 2015 | 9:15 pm
    Normally, when we talk about companies and institutions looking to silence security researchers and their ilk who have tried to expose potential threats, the story ends without tragedy. United Airlines, for instance, went on the attack on Chris Roberts, who may well be an idiot, for exposing in-flight WiFi security concerns. CyberLock decides to go legal on a researcher who had been trying desperately to contact them about a security flaw in a number of its electronic locks. Johns Hopkins, meanwhile, ordered the disappearing of a blog post detailing how its own servers might be compromised by…
  • DailyDirt: Space Mining

    Michael Ho
    26 May 2015 | 5:00 pm
    It's fairly common in science fiction for space mining operations to exist, but the reality is that just getting anything into space is pretty expensive -- and there isn't all that much stuff in space that needs to get re-supplied with materials. However, the legal basis for claiming ownership of space resources may be clearing up, and a few companies might actually be driving down the costs of getting a spacecraft into space. The concept of striking a literal gold mine in space might not happen, but the technology to collect resources in space might still be valuable for future space…

    The government that wants so badly to be the world's leading cyberwarfare force still seems largely unable to fence in its own backyard. In Yet Another Breach™, the sensitive financial information of thousands of Americans is now in the hands of criminals. The IRS announced today that criminals used taxpayer-specific data acquired from non-IRS sources to gain unauthorized access to information on approximately 100,000 tax accounts through IRS’ “Get Transcript” application. This data included Social Security information, date of birth and street address. These third…

    Driven by the relentless M&A lust of company chair and cable industry mainstay John Malone, Charter Communications has announced that the company will be spending $55 billion to acquire Time Warner Cable. Malone and Charter had been pursuing Time Warner Cable for two years, but found their ambitions blocked when Comcast made a better offer. With Comcast's merger attempt blocked by federal regulators, Charter got a second chance. The deal was accompanied with the usual assortment of prepared CEO statements promising that this merger will surely be the one that magically makes the cable…

    Mike Masnick
    26 May 2015 | 1:47 pm
    Well, this is unfortunate. Last fall, we wrote about yet another patent case being heard by the Supreme Court. This one (Commil v. Cisco) involved the question of whether or not a company could be found liable for "inducing infringement" when it believed that the patent in question was clearly invalid. The appeals court (CAFC) had overturned a lower court, saying that it was wrong for a judge to instruct a jury that Cisco could be found guilty of inducing patent infringement if it "knew or should have known that its actions would induce actual infringement." The big question was about the…

  • XTERRA Malibu Creek 22k Trail Race 2015 Report

    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. Now that I’ve started using to post workouts and track the activity of others I’m able…
  • Leona Divide 50k 2015 Race Report – DNF

    19 Apr 2015 | 8:03 pm
    I ran the Leona Divide 50k race yesterday with about 500 other trail running fanatics. Unfortunately my race ended around mile 21 when I chose to drop. 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…
  • Bandit Ultra Trail Race 2015 – Volunteering and Photos O’ Plenty

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

    9 Feb 2015 | 8:20 am
    I got a little crazy in December and decided to sign up for my first ultra race. After some training I figured it made more sense to do a trail marathon first so with that I changed my registration from the Sean O’Brien 50K to the Marathon race on February 7, 2015. If you’re not familiar with the Sean O’Brien races, this is the second year for the races, held at Malibu Creek State Park in Agoura Hills. Last year runners could sign up for the Marathon, 50k or the 50 miler. The 50 miler turned into a playground for elite runners seeking to qualify for a coveted Western States…

    3 Jan 2015 | 5:38 pm

I also dedicated a lot of training time to increasing my climbing and logged over 24,000 feet in elevation gain. I trained on several mountain ranges in Southern California and feel like I can knock out a half marathon run at any time, so I did. It’s been a couple of weeks since running the Santa To The Sea Half Marathon in Oxnard on Dec. 18. I was excited to tackle the course and try to set a PR for the half. The flat as a pancake course…

Chalk it up to advancements in design, features, style, or a combination of those, but consumers are still snapping up what manufacturers are producing. There’s no such thing as too much choice when it comes to accessorizing to one’s personal tastes.

    Blasphemy? Perhaps, but we’ll bet a few of you Big Red G Pad 8.3 users feel genuinely blessed to be able to live through two drastic software makeovers already. Launched in a Wi-Fi-only configuration back in the fall of 2013 pre-loaded with Android 4.2 Jelly Bean, the high-end (-ish) 8 incher spread its wings to Verizon during the following spring.

    Thankfully, tinny, terrible laptop speakers seem a relic of the past, but there are still occasions when the built-in audio from your portable computer's speakers or audio jack just doesn't quite cut it. Let's say you're an electronic music luminary traveling the world without the comforts of one's home studio but with an album deadline to meet. You need to hear what's going on. So here's the Apogee Groove, a portable USB amplifier that apparently improves audio all the way from low-bitrate WAV files to high-quality FLAC files.

    Apple reportedly is preparing to launch an app called "Home" to act as an interface for setting up and managing smart devices that plug into its HomeKit framework. The Home app is expected to manage thermostats, smoke alarms, garage door openers, door locks, and other automated home tech. Apple already has announced that some HomeKit products will be making their debut at this year's WWDC, which will be held next month in San Francisco. It's possible the Home app could be unveiled there as well.
  • Apple vs. Lenovo: Lenovo's Coming-Out Party

    Rob Enderle
    25 May 2015 | 5:00 am
    If there is one vendor on the planet that has the capability to fight Apple -- on paper, it is Lenovo. Lenovo this week will hold its annual Lenovo Tech World event in China, showcasing the company's new breadth. While it would be easy to position this as the U.S. against China, Lenovo is actually far more of a multinational company, with executives balanced between the U.S. and China, and with strong alliances with both Microsoft and Google. This will not only be a battle between companies, but also between approaches to the market.

    The United States and its leading Western allies, known as the "Five Eyes," reportedly planned to hack into smartphones through their links to Google and Samsung's app stores. They wanted to infect apps with spyware and find ways to send misinformation to targets, according to documents released to the media by National Security Agency whistle-blower Edward Snowden. The intelligence agencies also apparently began targeting the mobile browser UC Browser in late 2011, after discovering it leaked revealing details about its users.

Simplicity lets you carry your entire desktop, favorite installed applications, and complete collection of documents and files in your pocket everywhere you go.

    The message-in-a-bottle routine is going Wi-Fi. And that means pretty soon you'll have your very own mini Times Square at the bar, right on the bottle. "Everyone likes to see their name in lights," says Brandon Laidlaw, president and chief operating officer of Pleasanton, California-based Medea vodka, which recently introduced a liquor bottle equipped with an LED message band that can be programmed to scroll any message that inspires you via a free smartphone app. OK, so maybe it's message ON a bottle.

    25 May 2015 | 4:55 am
    Hewlett-Packard is selling a controlling stake in its China server and storage unit, a move that comes as the Chinese government, apparently worried about U.S. cyberspying, has encouraged the use of local companies. HP said Thursday it will sell the 51 percent stake in the business for about $2.3 billion to Tsinghua Holdings, part of state-owned Tsinghua University. The sale will create a partnership to be called H3C. HP said the move will accelerate growth in the country. "HP is making a bold move to win in today's China," said CEO Meg Whitman.

    Could the new version of AppleâEU™s mobile operating system make your old iPhone or iPad run more smoothly? That could happen when the tech giant rolls out iOS 9, which is supposed to focus on performance and stability instead of new features. That focus on performance could extend all the way back to three- and four-year-old Apple devices, according to a report on 9to5Mac. The Web site cited sources within AppleâEU™s software development departments saying that Apple engineers have been advocating for a focus on stability in 2015 in the wake of the buggy debuts of both iOS and OS X.

    Bill Brenner
    18 May 2015 | 4:42 am
    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.

  • iPhone 7 rumor rollup: Camera magic via teeny pixels, plus an "airy" new design

    17 May 2015 | 2:50 pm
    Do you think of your iPhone more as a phone or a camera? The latter might wind up being more true for many if the latest rumors about what Apple will bring to iPhone 6S or iPhone 7 come to fruition. Two well-respected Apple watchers this past week indicated that the next iPhones will likely boast 12 megapixel cameras with smaller pixels designed for higher quality photos. The past few models of the iPhone, going back to the 4S introduced in 2011, have had 8 megapixel cameras.

    Apple has been in talks about their new update for the iOS 9. The updates of this version apparently plans to bring buit-in transit directions to its native Maps applications. When Apple replaced Google Maps, the Transit directions were completely left out. The Transit were left out back in 2012 as Apple had its own offering as the default navigation application in the iOS 6. Last year, there were rumors that Apple made a late-stage decision to take transit navigation out of iOS 8. The current and new report stated that now it intends to launch it with this year’s update of its mobile OS.

    Normally, when we talk about companies and institutions looking to silence security researchers and their ilk who have tried to expose potential threats, the story ends without tragedy. United Airlines, for instance, went on the attack on Chris Roberts, who may well be an idiot, for exposing in-flight WiFi security concerns. CyberLock decides to go legal on a researcher who had been trying desperately to contact them about a security flaw in a number of its electronic locks.

    It's fairly common in science fiction for space mining operations to exist, but the reality is that just getting anything into space is pretty expensive -- and there isn't all that much stuff in space that needs to get re-supplied with materials. However, the legal basis for claiming ownership of space resources may be clearing up, and a few companies might actually be driving down the costs of getting a spacecraft into space. The concept of striking a literal gold mine in space might not happen, but the technology to collect resources in space might still be valuable for future space…

In Yet Another Breach™, the sensitive financial information of thousands of Americans is now in the hands of criminals.

    Driven by the relentless M&A lust of company chair and cable industry mainstay John Malone, Charter Communications has announced that the company will be spending $55 billion to acquire Time Warner Cable. Malone and Charter had been pursuing Time Warner Cable for two years, but found their ambitions blocked when Comcast made a better offer. With Comcast's merger attempt blocked by federal regulators, Charter got a second chance. The deal was accompanied with the usual assortment of prepared CEO statements promising that this merger will surely be the one that magically makes the cable…

    Well, this is unfortunate. Last fall, we wrote about yet another patent case being heard by the Supreme Court. This one (Commil v. Cisco) involved the question of whether or not a company could be found liable for "inducing infringement" when it believed that the patent in question was clearly invalid. The appeals court (CAFC) had overturned a lower court, saying that it was wrong for a judge to instruct a jury that Cisco could be found guilty of inducing patent infringement if it "knew or should have known that its actions would induce actual infringement." The big question was about the…

    Not even a week into this new lifestyle choice and I’m loving it.

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…

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.

So I started to answer with a comment on Facebook, but within a sentence I knew this would grow into a post.

These are ads that are actually a part of the background or are, in some graphical and often animated way, an actual element of the page. Today, I thought I saw Amazon come as close as I’ve seen it come to promoting a product using a takeover approach (that wasn’t a letter from Jeff Bezzos). However, upon looking at it more closely, I realized it was a standard size Amazon uses — a…

Instead, it became first, a giant hole and then, one of the most expensive lakes a person can imagine. However, Google Maps isn’t a person and it had no problem imagining it. Google Maps has spent the past several years codifying the creation of the giant lake on West End Avenue. A six year old post on a real estate blog tells the story up to that point. Since then, there has been another big deal announcement, some more digging, and a deal falling…

Defragmentation is a computer process that reduces the fragmented files in your hard drive. In layman, the process organizes the files in a mass storage device (i.e.

    With liquid-coolers now readily available in several sizes, there is a wide variety of choice available for enthusiast users looking for a heatsink. Austria-based Noctua — which is widely regarded as the maker of the quietest heatsinks — has a bevy of air-cooled options that go head to head with the latest liquid-cooled offerings, such as Corsair’s Hydro line of AIO heatsinks. The NH-D15 is the current flagship offering, with the heatsink commanding a price of $100. That’s the same asking price of Corsair’s liquid-cooled H100i, which comes with a 240mm radiator.  One of…

  • Why You Should Enable Dual Redundancy on Your Drobo

    Terry White

In my home office I use a Drobo 5D connected to my Mac OS X Server as well as a second Drobo 5N to backup the Drobo 5D. The whole reason to have a Drobo is so that if one of your hard drives fail your data will be protected and you can just keep working. You’ll probably replace the failed drive with a larger one since larger drives come out every year. The one thing we don’t really think about is what happens if two drives fail at the same time? Normally this means you’re screwed…

The San Francisco typeface has been used on the Apple Watch already and largely has been credited to have been cleaner and sleeker font on smaller displays as compared to Helvetica.

    18 May 2015 | 1:36 am
    A quick look at modern day video games, and it becomes evident how much impact technology has had on how we experience gaming today. Just about two decades ago, the 16-bit graphics of the Super Nintendo and Sega Genesis were the most popular consoles. While gameplay was still quite entertaining on those systems, it was the graphics that left too much to be desired. Enter 2015, however, and everything has changed; thanks to the technological advancements and availability of modern gaming consoles. In fact, today’s Game Studios are on the verge of unlocking the true potential of the…

  • SSD Buying Guide: Which SSD is Right for Your Computer?

    7 May 2015 | 6:01 am
    Wondering How to Buy an SSD (Solid State Drive)? The traditional hard disk drive (HDD) has been common in consumer desktops since the time of the first personal computers in the 1980s. HDDs consist of a mechanical arm that seeks across a metal disk to find and store data. Unfortunately, mechanical parts mean that hard drives are often the first components to wear out in a computer, while the rate of data retrieval is limited by mechanical realities. In contrast, solid state drives (SSDs) have no moving parts and rapidly store data using electronic means. Technological advances have finally…
  • Technology Behind Pinhole Glasses

    6 May 2015 | 3:58 am
    How do Pinhole glasses (spectacles, eyeglasses or sunglasses) work? Pinhole glasses are modern technology miracles as they allow people with blurry vision to see clear objects without the need of prescription lenses and glasses. They are an alternative to corrective glasses and can be used to improve vision and sight. The design and shape of pinhole glasses is similar to normal frames, with one small difference, the pinhole glasses have tiny holes in the lenses. The pinholes are made of an opaque sheet that has tiny holes on it, and is attached to frames. They can be worn like normal glasses.

Despite the mighty Microsoft and the Windows backing it up, Lumia’s share in the market barely touches 3 percent mark. But don’t be fooled with their share of pie. The new smartphones in series, Lumia 640 and 640 XL are one of the best budget smartphones released by Microsoft. These phones feature a size of 5.7 inches (XL) and runs on some impressive piece of hardware. But it all comes down to whether it’s the phone for you – should you buy it? Here, I…

The app was kind of unique at the time (see this Monday Note about it); it was built on a clever news flow rearrangement, truncated for faster reading; quotes were pulled out, sources listed apart in a precise manner.

    Companies are competing to turn data into advice on how to farm better, and attracting investments from the likes of Google Ventures and Monsanto.Keith Larrabee’s farm sits on 4,000 acres of California’s Sacramento Valley, between a coastal range of mountains to the west and the tall Sierra Nevadas to the east. It’s an area that traditionally gets much more rain than most of the drought-stricken state. Even so, Larrabee is always worried about the cost and availability of water for his orchards of walnuts and pecans and his 3,000 acres of rice.

    According to a new study, the total number of knee replacement surgeries performed in the United States shows a significant increase. The study published in the Journal of Bone and Joint Surgery (JBJS) (June 2014 edition) found that the total knee replacements (TKR) had tripled during 1993 – 2009, while hip replacement surgeries doubled during the same period. A higher prevalence of overweight and obesity in the US accounted for about 95 percent increase in these orthopedic surgical procedures, particularly with younger patients being affected to a greater extent.

From my past experience managing and providing IT administrative support, I can attest that these individuals are usually the most irritating—constantly requesting access to new applications, data, and other business resources with expectations of an immediate response.

If you want the full-screen Start experience on Windows 10 desktop mode, you have to enable it in the settings. We'll show you how. It's really simple. Watch the steps in our video.

Over the years spent on developing and designing software solutions I have noticed the tendency to overcomplicate things by developers, DB architects and UI designers. After a certain time the reasons for that have eventually become clear to me. What I have observed is the fact that everyone focuses on their layer. They don’t pay enough attention to other parts of the system and don’t know how they could help their colleagues working on other…

      You may know about the Evil Legion of Evil and it’s admirable assault on the forces of Political Correctness. You may in fact, even be a Vile Faceless Minion. You may even be Proud about it. And yet; there remains an unfulfilled level of pride. And as the Evil Empire of Evildoers well know, Arrogant pride in our Evilness is basically a requirement. Many Vile Faceless Minions are required. Indeed we must accept that their bodies are useful for the making of steps with which we, more arrogant, more specifically and intentionally Evil, Evildoers climb over the bastions of Social…

When searching for the image above, I also came across the fact that the average review for it is very poor, between one and three stars, which initially (and stupidly) shocked me. This film is truly amazing and or a variety of reasons, but primary amongst them is that it is a very real portrayal of what happens when Political Correctness becomes the ideology of the day. And yes, I really do mean that, and yes, the emphasis on Political Correctness is indeed on Political. But do not be fooled. What you think is harmless garden variety…

The poem IF, by Rudyard Kipling, has been a favourite of mine since I first read it as a teenager, and it pretty much describes my sense of things. Along with the parts of the samurai poem I know by heart, they have, at difficult times, been a source of some comfort. This time they fell far short. So much so I…

My general observation is that most organizations don’t really know what innovation means to them, leading to confusion and misalignment of resources and goals, which severely limits the chances of successfully innovating. Because you can’t measure what you can’t define, failure to align on an…

A reverse image search is what you do when you already have the image in hand, but want to find out more about it.

    Snapchat has nearly 100 million daily active users, CEO Evan Spiegel said on stage at Re/code's Code Conference Tuesday evening.  That's about a tenth as many as Facebook, which reported 936 million daily active users in March. However, Snapchat users watch roughly half as many videos as Facebook users every day, according to a recent Bloomberg interview with Spiegel. Snapchat hasn't given an official user count in the past, though sources told The Wall Street Journal that it had more than 100 million monthly active users last August. If that number was accurate,…

    There are a lot of things Evan Spiegel wants to change about Snapchat, the CEO said on stage at Re/code's Code Conference Tuesday evening.  One thing that he highlighted was that he really wants the company to work on is the way people view video Snaps. Right now, users have to hold down a button on screen the entire duration of the video, or else the video stops playing.  Spiegel says that in the future, Snapchat could eliminate that requirement.  Originally, the feature was put in place because it was a sort of makeshift safe-guard against screenshotting (at the time, the…

In fact, you can see the images below of it in action. However, don’t get your hopes too high. While it may be much thinner than flagship OLED televisions right now, the panel likely doesn’t…

Aparentemente, el nuevo tipo de letra remplazará a la fuente Helvetica Neue que se usa actualmente, y con su introducción Apple pretende refrescar su software, a la vez que proporciona una mejor legibilidad.   Tras el cambio completo que Apple introdujo con Helvetica Neue el año pasado, algunos diseñadores expresaron su descontento con la fuente, quejándose principalmente de su…

    26 May 2015 | 6:30 am
    There are some who argue that Africa needs fossil-fuel-generated power in order to boost standards of living and end the deprivation that afflicts too many. Just can’t do without it. But Akon is taking a different approach in rural areas of the sun-blessed continent. Africa’s excellent solar resource is shown in this map by SolarGIS © 2011 GeoModel Solar s.r.o..

    Yeah, you might say that Tesla’s big battery announcement went over pretty well. Within days of introducing the Powerwall and Powerpack – attractive units, but more importantly, less expensive than expected – the company had booked $800 million in reservations.Image snipped from Tesla’s April 30 battery announcement.And no matter what you think about the immediate usefulness of the Tesla Energy batteries, the enthusiastic reaction should serve to propel advancement in producing better and cheaper energy storage options, and that will only help encourage more renewable energy to…
  • Could Controlled-Fusion Usher in a New Era of Clean Energy?

    Dr. Kat Mizouni
    4 May 2015 | 6:10 am
    Today six governments are involved in the planning and construction of what could be called “the largest international scientific undertaking in history”. Their purpose: to usher in a new era of clean, abundant energy. University of Washington scientists may be even closer.Fusion is theoretically well understood from the study of thermonuclear reactions and conditions that power the Sun. Under extremely high temperatures and pressure, hydrogen atoms are forced to overcome their electrical repulsion and fuse together, thereby releasing energy. Although the construction of such a device on…
  • Community Solar Spreading the PV Goodness

    Pete Danko
    3 May 2015 | 7:30 am
    The story of rooftop solar power in recent years is one of challenges conquered. Panels too pricey? Scaled up production (in China, mainly) took care of that. System capital costs still too high? New finance models, like leasing, came to the rescue.The next big challenge to fall by the wayside might be in making solar available to the millions of people and businesses who don’t have a rooftop of their own for a system.A community solar project taking shape in Colorado this spring.

    China issued an update on its solar progress this week and made every other solar-seeking country around the world feel kind of pathetic.The National Energy Board said 5.04 GW was installed in the first quarter of 2015. To put that in perspective, China’s three-month total was just a gigawatt shy of what the U.S. installed in all of 2014 – and it was a good year for the Americans, their best ever. And as an Australia-based renewable energy website noted, 5.04 GW is “an amount the Australian government has said would be impossible to install within five years.”image via…

    Google is apparently a creationist organization, and thinks dinosaurs are used to indoctrinate children into believing that earth is millions of years old. No, they didn’t put out a statement saying so. But if you Googled the term “What happened to the dinosaurs?” earlier today, you’d have seen some “information” from Ken Ham’s Answers In Genesis that contradicts the overwhelming scientific consensus. The Quick Answers Box is one of the core parts of Google and a tool you can’t live without. So it’s important for this information to…

  • Which Android Tablet Should I Buy? 7 Things to Consider

    Mihir Patkar
    26 May 2015 | 1:00 pm
    Apple may have made tablets mainstream again, but the iPad has little variety to speak of. Either you get the 10-inch iPad Air or the 8-inch iPad Mini, and the only difference between the two is size. There are a lot more options if you’re buying an Android tablet, so let’s make it easier to choose. The Google Nexus series of tablets is as close as you’ll get to what the makers of Android imagine an Android tablet should be like. However, plenty of manufacturers do as good or a better job of making Android tablets. It all depends on...Read the full article: Which Android…

  • Has The Younger Generation Turned Off TV For Good?

    16 May 2015 | 5:14 pm
    By now, you’ve doubtless heard the term “cord cutting”. It’s an imposing name for a simple process: dumping your cable or satellite provider in favor of internet-delivered content. Cord cutters have only recently begun to truly grow in number, and many of us are left to wonder: what exactly should we make of this trend? Depending on who you listen to, cord cutting is either the way of the future and the death knell of traditional TV models, or a passing blip in the radar that industry giants can comfortably ignore. The truth, of course, is a mix of the two. New means of…

They help us to stay productive and efficient, and they’re used on a daily basis. As you can imagine, it becomes something of a catastrophe when our PCs stop working!

    Search engine optimisation is perhaps one of the most confusing aspects of online marketing. Few people understand it, and even fewer execute it well. Google have done a fantastic job of refining and honing its algorithm. They make regular changes to ensure they serve the best and most relevant content to their users. However, these constant changes and updates make it a nightmare for marketers and websites. Every time Google updates its algorithm, it changes the world of SEO.

    One hour of flight time, a top speed of 100 km/h (62 mph), a payload of 5 kg (11 lb) – these are big figures for a drone, and figures that are basically out of reach using today's LiPo battery technology. But German startup Yeair! believes it's possible using a hybrid system in which each rotor is driven by two motors – an electric, and a two-stroke 10cc gasoline engine. And the Yeair! team has its sights set on something even more impressive down the track – personal flight in a two-seater hybrid octocopter. The quadcopter of the future, according to German startup Yeair!, will eclipse…

It might look like just another upmarket diving watch, but this particular timepiece is rated water-resistant to depths of 2,000 m (6,600 ft), so it seems to be aimed at record-breaking mixed-gas deep-sea divers and people who would take comfort in knowing that the watch they lost overboard is still ticking on the bottom of the ocean...

Most modern computers, especially those running, say, Windows 8, have screensavers disabled by default, and most people don’t bother to use them in favor of simple lock screens or simply turning the screen off.Screensavers are called such because they were designed to prevent burn-in on older monitors, saving the screen from damage done by the computer being…

  • Every world in a grain of sand: John Nash's astonishing geometry

    Daniel Mathews, Lecturer in Mathematics at Monash University
    26 May 2015 | 9:46 pm
    Surfaces like this are able to be described thanks to the work of Nash. Hevea Project, CC BY-SAAs has been widely reported, John Forbes Nash Jr died tragically in a car accident on May 23 of this year. Many tributes have been paid to this great mathematician, who was made famous by Sylvia Nasar’s biography A Beautiful Mind and the subsequent movie based on that book. Much has been said about Nash’s work on game theory. But less has been said about Nash’s other mathematical achievements. Many mathematicians who understand Nash’s work would agree, I think, that although his work in game…
  • When your child has to go to hospital it is always hard - even when it is for the best

    Olivia Carter, Senior Lecturer &amp; ARC Future Fellow at University of Melbourne
    26 May 2015 | 4:38 pm
    One blurry photo and four weeks later Joe was in hospital. With no idea about what was coming, he seemed very happy in the wobbly rattling hospital cot. Author providedIt is amazing how much can happen in a couple of months. About 10 weeks ago my husband and I started to get the feeling that Joe was favouring his right eye. The more we looked the more we realised that he always had that eye higher than his left. He held toys in his right hand and would roll or sit in a way that allowed his head to stay tilted. I mentioned something to a colleague at work who happened to be having lunch with a…
  • AAS President: Science needs support to build a better Australia

    Australia has a long history of first class science. Willem van Aken/CSIRO, CC BYA shift has occurred in the past year in the way the Australian public, politicians and business talk about science. Scientists are no longer considered to be “precious petals”. We are being taken seriously. We are being heard. At the end of last year we welcomed the reinstatement of the word “Science” into the portfolio of the Minister of Industry and Science. It seems like a small thing, but it’s symbolically significant. And it was followed by further indications from the government that it is…
  • The legacy of John Nash and his equilibrium theory

    26 May 2015 | 12:02 am
    Nobel Prize winner John Nash in 2007. EPA/Money SharmaThe American mathematician John Nash, who died in a taxi accident at the weekend, is probably best known to the wider public through Russell Crowe’s portrayal of him in the 2001 movie A Beautiful Mind. His career in academia was glittering – he was awarded the Nobel Prize for Economics in 1994 and only this year he won the Abel Prize, often regarded as mathematics' own Nobel Prize. Although his achievements spanned a huge number of fields in the mathematical sciences, he will likely be best remembered for his work in the development of…

  • Lenovo unveils another Chromebook competitor -- $249 Windows 8.1 laptop

    Mihaita Bamburic
    26 May 2015 | 9:00 pm
    With PC shipments continuing on a downward slope, manufacturers are finding new ways to attract consumers. In the high-end segment, it is all about specs: high-resolution screens, lots of battery life, powerful processors and so on. But, at the other end of the spectrum, the focus is on value for money -- to a certain extent, it is about cramming as many nice things as possible into a package that does not break the bank. Chromebooks are probably the offerings that best cater to this audience's needs, assuming folks can live without Windows on their new machines. If that is not the case,…
  • Lenovo Yoga 3 11 -- thin, light, beautiful, and wonderful [Review]

    Lenovo's Yoga line of laptops has been a favorite of mine. In addition to Microsoft's Surface line, Yoga has proven to be a great way to experience Windows on a 2-in-1 with very little compromise. While I was a fan of the 13 inch Yoga variants, I found them a bit too large for my liking. Believe it or not, I prefer 11.6 inch laptops as I am always on the move; I'll turn anything into a work space as long as there is Wi-Fi (shout-out to Starbucks). When I got the opportunity to review the all-new Lenovo Yoga 3 11, I was elated. Not only does the size and Yoga flexibility meet my needs, but…

    There is something happening in the Android world -- consumers just aren't caring about the latest and greatest flagships like they used to. Even Samsung, once thought to be unstoppable, is facing declining sales. It almost seems as if consumers are fatigued to the upgrade cycle. While a new iPhone is a magical annual affair, the market is flooded with so many Android phones, it is hard to differentiate one from another. The major manufacturers are even starting to feel pressure from smaller companies such as OnePlus. What are manufacturers such as Sony and LG supposed to do to make their…
  • Logitech begins adding older remotes to roster of home control devices

    26 May 2015 | 2:42 pm
    There is perhaps no better purveyor of the universal remote than Logitech, which owns the Harmony brand. It's not necromancy, just solid engineering and hardware and software that just works. Perhaps that is why it has remained popular and Logitech has continued to improve things since taking over. Now the company is stepping back a bit, but doing so in a good way, as it brings more home control to some of the older models via the Harmony Hub. "Today Logitech announced that we’re adding even more devices to the roster that some of our older remotes can control, with a free, optional…

He was great but I mostly met with the study nurse. I called her Mrs. Jackie.  At this clinic they charged $2500  plus about $500 for medication to participate in an IVF cycle in the Ivy study. If the first cycle did not work, you could participate a second or even third time, each for an additional $2500. This was a whole lot cheaper than paying out of pocket for a traditional round of IVF that could cost around $10,000…

The technology will allow researchers to test potential drugs for treating pain using the nerve cells in a lab, all based on an individual patient’s own genetic signature, said Mick Bhatia, who led the team of researchers at McMaster University in Hamilton.

  • Hydrogen powered HYCOPTER can fly for 4 hours

    25 May 2015 | 12:45 am
    HYCOPTER is the world’s first hydrogen fuel cell powered multi-rotor UAV. HYCOPTER is being readied for a record flight endurance of 4 hours, or 8 to 10 times the average flight duration of equivalent systems today. Unlike any other rotorcraft, HYCOPTER makes use of its frame structure to store energy in the form of hydrogen instead of air, eliminating energy storage weight. With less lift power required, HYCOPTER’s ultra-light fuel cell turns the hydrogen in its frame into electricity to power its rotors. With HUS breakthrough technology, today’s 20-30 minute multi-rotor missions shift…

    Stuart Thomas: Motorburn Editor
    26 May 2015 | 10:00 pm
    For a guy at the top of an industry worth billions upon billions of dollars, David Sable doesn’t seem all that concerned with the bottom line. Instead, the global CEO of WPP-held giant Young & Rubicam seems more concerned with telling great stories about his clients and their products. That philosophy might explain why he hasn’t cashed out, despite having been involved in the industry in form or another since 1976. It might also explain why his views on why agencies are so willing to follow those clients into new untapped markets. Having witnessed first-hand the entrance of…

    US telecommunications giant Verizon has snapped up AOL for $4.4bn (£2.8bn), in a deal worth $50 per share at an $8 premium. AOL generates revenues from advertising space on its own websites, such as the Huffington Post, Engadget, and TechCrunch, selling ad space for other websites, and from its legacy dial-up internet business. Verizon is likely looking to create a full service media and communications company, following the example of UK companies such as Sky and BT, where users get their phonelines, internet, and television all through the same provider.

  • The Future of Recruitment is not Technology

    20 May 2015 | 2:12 am
    Quite simply, as Greg Savage put it in a recent article, “the future of recruitment is where art meets science. Where technology combines with highly sophisticated human influencing skills”. You could actually stop reading at this point, if you didn’t want to know any more detail behind this, but that’s a bit like a scientist being told the answer to life itself is DNA and then not wanting to know more about how that works. The advances in recruitment technology in the last 5 years have been significant in comparison to the previous 10-15 years. Not since the first…

Online Recruitment will no doubt receive a rush of applications and CV uploads this week as the ex-Party Leaders and ex-MP’s rush to find new employment opportunities. Some might say that the sheltered – and often comfortable – positions they have held in public office will create a significant shock factor when faced with real world job-seeker prospects.

    Understandably, there is a lot of talk at the moment about the growing skills gap across many sectors. We know it exists because the number of live advertised vacancies is growing at a faster rate than the number of the same jobs being filled and when businesses start to suffer, they make loud squeaking and grumbling noises that manifest themselves through the various media and communications channels. It’s the big boys mostly that get heard, but believe me it’s the small businesses that really feel this the most. After all, you think about it, bigger companies with bigger budgets and…

    Hilton Lipschitz
    17 May 2015 | 12:28 pm
    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…

    I’m not a keyboard snob. But I love using my current keyboards now. Background: I was very happy with the Apple “chicklet” style keyboards and even wrote about it in Not the Clicky Keyboard. There I declared that clicky keyboards were not for me. I was wrong. But I did not know it at the time. A while back, my boss went on a buying bender and purchased a whole bunch of different keyboards, including the DAS and some Microsoft ones. I tried them out too. Neither of us liked any of them, so he returned them all. As a joke, I ordered the CODE keyboard to show that I could buy…
  • One-Key Format Presets in Scrivener

    Hilton Lipschitz
    7 Mar 2015 | 2:37 pm
    I am writing a lot of business documents in Scrivener, and even though it’s the wrong way to do it, I use Scrivener’s format presets (think paragraph styles) to quickly format headings, bulleted lists and paragraphs in each sub-document. This way I minimize post-processing (and the business format is intentionally boring so I do not need any fancy layouts). But it’s a hassle to have to take my hands off the keyboard to click through the Format / Apply Formatting / Apply Preset menu tree or hit the tiny format preset dropdown ¶a to set the current paragraph style.

    It is quite astounding to me that an astonishing amount of work is done and code written without any knowledge, view or understanding of the bigger picture. And yet no-one seems to have taken the time to consider just how remarkably ridiculous this common situation is. How can people be expected to perform at their best and create the best products when they have no clue as to what the big picture or goal is? And yet that seems to be the norm. I started thinking more about this topic yesterday when discussing the work our Quantitative Analysts were doing with them. They were keenly focussed…

  • The first trailer for the Point Break remake shows silly stunts and a sillier script

    Rich McCormick
    26 May 2015 | 8:02 pm
    The bank-robbing antagonists of the original Point Break were a gang of surfers — sufficiently extreme for the '90s, perhaps, but obviously not wild enough for the upcoming remake. 2015's Point Break's villains are surfers, sure, but as the first trailer shows, they're also dirtbikers, snowboarders, wingsuiters, BASE jumpers, and partiers. Just in case you weren't convinced of their extreme-itude, some of them have even have tattoos. On first glance, the remake appears to have lost something of the original's silliness, giving the death-defying proceedings a cold blue sheen that makes the…
  • Hot Topic is buying ThinkGeek

    26 May 2015 | 5:59 pm
    Back in the '90s, retailer Hot Topic gained a level of notoriety by gobbling up punk / alternative culture and style and repackaging it for mall-going teens across the country. (I'm not judging, I may have bought a few Tool t-shirts there in my day.) Now, the company is getting its hands into geek culture — Hot Topic just bought Geeknet, owners of the goofy online shop. ThinkGeek is pretty well-known for its wide variety of kitschy, pop-culture focused offerings — the site's banner features huge properties like Marvel, Star Wars, Game of Thrones, and more.

Currently, the control of those launches is dominated by the United Launch Alliance, a Boeing and Lockheed Martin consortium. Elon Musk and SpaceX spent two years and more than $60 million to acquire the certification.

  • Would the medical research benefits of reclassifying LSD outweigh the risks?

    26 May 2015 | 3:32 pm
    Psychedelic drugs should be reclassified to encourage new research into their medical applications, a researcher argues in an opinion piece published in The British Medical Journaltoday. Before substances such as LSD were stigmatized during the "war on drugs" in the 1970s, studies suggested they could be useful in dealing with psychiatric disorders, writes James Rucker, a psychiatrist at King’s College London. But a number of restrictions —  some legal and some financial — have made studying potentially-helpful drugs far too difficult. "Legal prohibition of some psychotropic…

Many players have attempted cloud gaming to various degrees of success, but no-one has yet cracked it.  Streaming games from the cloud is more difficult than video streaming primarily because every second counts, and a couple of seconds lag can be detrimental to gameplay.

A new report from Smith’s Point Analytics argues the benefits of codeless mobile app platforms. The report, sponsored by Globo, Altova and Umajin, assesses three ways in which organisations can benefit from codeless platforms; templates in a visual editor, componentised drag and drop editors as a plug-in, and drag and drop WYSIWYG visual editors. With the latter, while there is more…
