This toothbrush also comes with companion app that will show people how to brush their teeth, and it will keep records of their brushing sessions and display progress in user-friendly dashboard.

  • The Connected Car, Part 3: No Shortcuts to Security

    19 Aug 2014 | 4:58 pm
    The connected car is becoming a reality, but the gadget-filled roadways it travels will be paved with several options for in-car technologies. These choices pose challenges for carmakers. Whichever technology wins the race, one of the biggest concerns for OEMs is their electronic security. The Linux Foundation wants an open source platform in the pole position. The nonprofit consortium already has a fully functional Linux distribution. Automotive Grade Linux is a customizable, open source automotive software stack with Linux at its core.

    Whether you're new to the guitar or a seasoned git-fiddler, chances are that the shape, color and hardware of your go-to axe have been determined by the company that produces it. The cost of having an instrument made to your exact specifications can cause the heart to skip more than a few beats, and the bank manager to question your sanity. 3D printing technology has the potential to help create your dream guitar for a fraction of the cost of a Custom Shop model, and that's precisely what's on offer from the UK's Customuse.

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…

    20 Aug 2014 | 10:10 am
    A loss of neurons in a part of the brain that serves as an on/off switch for sleep may explain why so many older adults suffer from insomnia. “In many older people with insomnia and other patterns of sleep disruption, the underlying cause is unknown,” says Andrew Lim, assistant professor of neurology at University of Toronto. “We provide evidence that loss of neurons in a particular region of the brain that controls sleep may be an important contributor to insomnia in many older individuals.” Full story at Futurity.

  • Snow on Arctic sea ice continues to thin

    20 Aug 2014 | 10:04 am
    An analysis of recent and historic data confirms snow has thinned significantly in the Arctic, particularly on sea ice in western waters near Alaska. What thinner snow will mean for the ice is not certain. Deeper snow actually shields ice from cold air, so a thinner blanket may allow the ice to grow thicker during the winter. On the other hand, thinner snow cover may allow the ice to melt earlier in the springtime, say researchers at the University of Washington. Full story at Futurity.

    Where have all the burglars gone?: Tallinn on the decrease in crime around the developed world in recent years: But the sheer scale of the drop—and its broad persistence in the face of the deepest economic depression in a century—make a new crime wave seem unlikely. Policing is still improving; heroin and crack-cocaine consumption continue to fall; and no one is likely to reintroduce lead into petrol. The period of rising crime from the 1950s through to the 1980s looks increasingly like an historical anomaly. A portion of the theory reminds me a bit of Minority Report’s “pre-crime”.

New modules will be dropping LGPLv2.1 and GPLv3+ and be released under the LGPLv3 and GPLv2+ instead. This should be a good move: new Qt modules will be Apache license compatible, LGPLv3 code can trivially be converted to GPLv3, and Digia is even releasing a few modules it intended to make proprietary as Free Software. The KDE Free Qt Foundation is on board. The move was made because of device vendors exploiting a loophole in the…

What’s actually happening is that people are acquiring more devices, while simultaneously engaging in more activities, and then splitting those activities across their growing cadre of devices. Things used to be simple. People created documents on PCs, made phone calls on mobile phones and watched live broadcasts on TVs. Sure, there were a few outlying examples, but even just 10 years ago (heck, 5 years ago for many…
  • America Needs Entrepreneurs. Instead Of Programming Teach Children Fantasy Football.

    Brian S Hall
    18 Aug 2014 | 12:15 am
    America needs entrepreneurs. Men, women, boys, girls, native-born, immigrants, smart, skillful, driven, capable entrepreneurs to propel the economy, create jobs, spur innovation and build something from nothing. I believe to do this, to create a sizable generation of entrepreneurs, we should teach fantasy football to all children. Yes, really. Again and again we are told all children should be taught computer programming. Perhaps. I suspect however that teaching computer programming is a false idol, a way of telling ourselves we are prepping our children for the future, even though the future…

    Microsoft has introduced three new ads for its Surface Pro 3 tablets called “Power,” “Head to Head,” and “Crowded.” You can view them HERE. The Good The ads are well done. Clever, funny, short and to the point. I’ve seen some griping that the ads are entirely negative: “I don’t know why they would compare themselves to someone else, instead of saying just why people should be buying yours,” said Joe Balsarotti, president of St. Peters, Mo.-based Microsoft partner Software To Go. “By doing that, it’s admitting that Apple is…

    By: Hillel Fuld As you might have noticed, I have been posting interviews with some of the shakers of the Web and tech industries. This is something I started doing a while back. While these interviews have been a great experience for me to learn from some of the biggest names out there, the main advantage has been the relationships I have created. I love the fact that I can DM Alyssa Milano or joke around with Robert Scoble. I have spoken to Mike McCue on the phone (he is just as nice as online), and I am always learning from Chris Pirillo. Why am I telling you this? Because, as awesome as…

I literally made myself a list of individuals that I would one day, somehow, hope to have the privilege to interview. Some of them were a little out there. You know, people like the actress Alyssa Milano (remember Who’s the Boss?

Yes, I am fully aware that some of the newer Android flagship devices are more impressive than the iPhone, in both personality and looks, but for me, despite many MANY attempts, I stuck with iPhone. I have played with the Nexus 5. I have even played with the HTC M8.

    More than four years ago, we wrote about all the buzz that you were hearing about "cyberwar" was little more than an attempt to drum up FUD to get the government to throw billions of dollars at private contractors. We noted that Booz Allen Hamilton (yes, the last employer of one Ed Snowden) had hired former NSA director and also Director of National Intelligence Mike McConnell as its Vice Chairman. He was the leading voice out there screaming about the threat of "cyberwar" getting on TV and having lots of opinion pieces in big name publications -- all of which mentioned his former government…

    In yet another case in which police illegal arrested someone for filming the police, the police have been forced to pay up. Unlike the big Simon Glik case, it appears that the NYPD (under new management!) decided to do its best to settle the case and get it off the books. They're paying $125,000 to Dick George, who recorded police doing one of its infamous stop-and-frisks. According to George's lawsuit, not only did the police arrest George and delete the photos from his camera (after he told the kids who were stopped and frisked to get the cops' badge numbers next time), the police flat out…

And the question isn't so much being raised as it is being thrown in the reader's face. Sunil Dutta wants to make a point about the difficulties faced by police officers every day.

If someone decides to shut down a service, it's likely your purchases will vanish into the ether along with the service itself. If you want to resell your mp3s or ebooks, you're facing any number of unsettled legal questions and various industries pushing the assertion that your money was exchanged for a limited use license, rather than the acquisition of a product. But there may be some changes forthcoming. As The Digital Reader reports (via Ars Technica), Delaware has just passed a law that…

    Jason Kottke of the always informative and entertaining just posted a very interesting look at the genesis of UK law enforcement. In 1829, the UK government shifted policing from a paramilitary force comprised mainly of volunteers to an organized force comprised of citizens. But it made it very clear that UK police derived their power from the consent of the people, rather than from a government mandate. The government referred to it as "policing by consent," and even though the guiding principles are nearly 200 years old at this point, they still sound revolutionary, especially in…

Halt and Catch Fire averaged 1.2 million viewers over the course of its first season, which you might compare to the 1.8 million average of last year's Low Winter Sun, an AMC series that was ignominiously canceled after one season.

  • Twitter goes Facebook by injecting foreign content into your stream

    20 Aug 2014 | 9:20 am
    It was really just a matter of time — Twitter is now Facebook. In its early days, where new Facebook users friended just a handful of close pals and relatives, every single status update poured through into one’s news feed. And then, hundreds of millions of people joined. At some point, we as a society decided that “friending” someone wasn’t really hallowed, so we accepted requests by the hundreds. Sometimes, by the thousands. To combat the torrent of news, Facebook was forced to develop an algorithmic approach to selectively populating one’s news feed. Today, you have to manually…
  • Infineon to buy International Rectifier for $3 billion in cash

    20 Aug 2014 | 9:18 am
    German chipmaker Infineon announced on Wednesday that it had agreed to buy U.S.-based International Rectifier for about $3 billion in cash. The Munich-based group said the purchase price of $40 per share represented a 48 percent premium over the average share price of International Rectifier over the past three months and of 51 percent over Tuesday's closing share price. Infineon said it would fund the transaction using cash on hand and fully underwritten credit facilities totalling 1.5 billion euros ($2.0 billion). A person close to the negotiations had told Reuters earlier that…

     Stealth startup OnBeep got a little less stealthy today, announcing a new Series A round of $6.25 million in funding including investment from Riche Levandov of Avalon ventures, and including previous seed funding from WordPress-creator Matt Mullenweg and others.

     The phone-sized tablet — aka the phablet — was born in Asia, so it’s fitting that the region is now apparently driving a trend for talking on even larger slabs of glass and plastic. Analyst IDC says tablets with a screen of 7 inches or larger are increasingly shipping with cellular voice capabilities — and getting increasing traction the Asia/Pacific region,… Read More

  • GL-10 Helicopter Replacement Takes Off For The First Time

    In the world of science fiction, we have seen numerous spaceships that are not only capable of zipping around nimbly regardless of the atmosphere it is in, those ships will also be able to take off vertically, before zooming away horizontally. It looks like the real world has finally caught up with the realm of science fiction in the form of NASA’s electric vertical-takeoff airplane known as the GL-10 Greased Lightning. Making its maiden flight, the GL-10 will hopefully be able to replace the helicopter one of these days down the road. Right now, the NASA-designed GL-10 Greased Lightning…

    Earlier this year we saw Netflix ink its first agreement after reports emerged that its users were being throttled by ISPs. Under the agreement Netflix pays an undisclosed amount directly to the ISP so that its users are not throttled and they get the streaming experience that they expect from it. The online streaming giant has now signed a similar agreement with Time Warner Cable hoping to bring its subscribers on that particular ISP on faster lanes that offer significantly better connection speed to its servers. I should point out at this stage that Netflix now has these agreements with…

    It goes without saying that an Apple product is more often than not described to be a device which costs a premium over other similarly built brands, and it is Apple’s design and marketing that seems to give it that edge, or the ‘X factor’ over its competitors. In fact, the numerous Apple Stores that have been set up across the world have more often than not been in posh areas, except for the Middle East countries that are full of petroleum money. Apparently, this is one “error” that is set to be corrected, if the leaked Apple job listings for the United Arab Emirates (UAE) are to…

    20 Aug 2014 | 6:51 am
    Specs of the forthcoming Moto 360 smartwatch from Motorola appeared briefly on a Best Buy Web page this week, sparking increased chatter about the device. Concerns about price -- the watch was listed at $250 -- tempered the usual gasps of delight from geeks. Amazon lists a Samsung Galaxy Gear for $150, a Gear Live for $180, a Gear 2 Neo for $200, a Pebble Steel for $230, and an LG G Black Titan for $233. Given that Android device users are notoriously less willing to spend money than their iOS counterparts, who will purchase the Moto 360?

    Google has acquired Jetpac, according to a statement that appeared Friday on the Jetpac website. Jetpac is the creator of a handful of apps, including City Guides, which analyzes Instagram photos and then automatically creates guides based on the collected data. That information translates into a lot of options for users. They can find bars that attract a younger crowd, the most scenic hiking trails, or the hippest coffee shops, for example. Jetpac has covered some 6,000 cities around the world using this approach.

    Elias Manousos
    19 Aug 2014 | 10:03 am
    Traditional attack methods, like those used with the recent mobile online banking Trojan Svpeng, involve the installation of malware on the device to steal information and commit fraud. However, new techniques are emerging that would enable an attacker to compromise a device and steal private information from the owner -- for example, the typical copycat app on a third-party app store. It looks official. It has a corporate logo on it and perhaps a link to the genuine news feed from that corporation.

    Facebook has begun labeling some of the satirical news articles that appear in users' news feeds with a tag designed to prevent readers from mistaking the content for genuine news. The social network's "[Satire]" tag is apparently part of an experiment that's been under way for a month or so. "Folks that mistakenly read and forward satire are embarrassed in front of their friends, and some of those embarrassed people have been folks in power that had no sense of humor," said Rob Enderle, principal analyst with the Enderle Group.

Let’s have a contest at each conference for sleaziest booth. The vendor who wins gets a design-to-be-determined award sure to amplify their embarrassment and encourage them to grow up. Thoughts?

    I get it. I really do. I used to be an online journalist, and I know how much pressure there is to bring in page views. I’m sure I’ve even written a few headlines that played up the fear factor to get clicks. I’m human, and humans are often misguided. But if I’ve learned anything, it’s that throwing around words like “terrifying” and “scary” do more harm than good — especially when you’re using them at Black Hat, BSidesLV and DEF CON.

    If you’re prone to burning, and are never sure when you’ve been in the sun too long, it could now be as simple as wearing a UV-sensitive wristband, namely Smartsun. Designed by Swedish scientists, the new light-reactive bracelet changes colour from yellow to pink, warning wearers that it’s time to slap some sunscreen on and head into the shade. What’s great about Smartsun is that the bands have been designed for different skin types, as some people burn much more easily than others, me included. While the bands only cost £1, they only last a day, so could actually end up being…

Once you’ve covered as much of the area around (and above and below) you as possible, it automatically puts them together, to recreate the experience of being there.

As part of Europe-wide research examining the effects of digitisation on the reading experience, 50 readers were given the same 28-page short story by Elizabeth George and asked to read it – half of them using a Kindle, half on paper.

Scientists had been studying this hormone, which promotes bonding and feelings of togetherness (and is secreted when we hug, as well as when/if we breastfeed), as a possible explanation for autism, because it’s lower in children diagnosed with the disorder.

We are focused on XboxOne, PS4, and PC. — Michael Condrey (@MichaelCondrey) August 20, 2014 Whilst the game was never confirmed for WiiU, the announcement will no doubt be seen as more bad news for WiiU gamers after last year’s Call of Duty: Ghosts found its way on to the console.

    Solar panels are the future – but are also difficult to fit into the home. But what if your windows could be used to generate power? New research from Michigan State University suggests solar cells could be completely transparent – replacing boring old glass. According to Science Daily the way it works is rather than absorbing visible, light, the cells instead only absorb non-visible light: think ultraviolet and infrared. This means that the glass can remain perfectly transparent (without appearing tinted) whilst still generating electricity. Brilliant. This could conceivably mean…

  • The Successor to Siri and Open Data

    Kyle Baxter
    12 Aug 2014 | 5:43 pm
    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. Apple announced further updates to their cloud service where you can save all of the photos and videos you take,…

    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…

  • LG's 55EA9800 curved OLED TV now shipping for $2,799 in the US

    19 Aug 2014 | 8:51 pm
    It feels like I'm writing the same post over and over again - LG lowers the price of their OLED TV again... Only 7 days ago I posted that LG's 2013 OLED TV model, the 55EA9800 is down to $3,198. And I estimated that it's likely we'll see a 55" OLED TV for less than $3,000 very soon. Well! That did not take long. Amazon is now offering the EA9800 for only $2,799 via online retailer MCMelectronics.LG recently launched their new 2014 55" curved FHD model (the 55EC9300) for $3,499. They probably do not produce the EA9800 no longer, so supply for the older model is probably limited. LG will…

    On March 2014 Motorola showed their first smartwatch, the beautiful Moto 360, and it will launch it on September 4th. It was widely speculated that it adopts an OLED panel - especially as it is always on and the battery drain on an LCD will be quite large.But today Best Buy posted a product listing by mistake (they took it off-line a short while later) which revealed the Moto 360 specifications: and it uses a 1.5" 320x290 round LCD panel. This is quite a disappointment, I really hoped this beautiful time piece has an OLED display. Read more about Motorola's Moto 360 watch uses an LCD,…

    Researchers from New Zealand's Victoria University are developing MRAM devices (MTJs) based on rare earth nitrides (RENs). RENs, grown under ulta-high vacuum are both magnetic and semiconducting.The team is basing its work on europium nitride, which is not usually magnetic, but has been "tricked" into behaving like a magnet by being produced with slightly too few nitrogen atoms. Those RENs are grown in France's Centre for Research on Hetero-Epitaxy and Applications.Source: ZDNet
  • Graphene Quantum Dots to enable next-gen flash memory devices

    19 Jun 2014 | 2:36 am
    One of the problems with flash memory is that it is sensitive to defects. To solve this problem, researchers from Samsung Electronics are developing flash devices based on graphene quantum dots (GQDs). The performance of such a device is promising, with an electron density that is comparable to semiconductor and metal nanocrystal based memories. Those flash memory can also be made flexible and transparent.The researchers used GQDs in three different sizes (6, 12, and 27 nm) between silicon dioxide layers. The memory of the QDs depend on their sizes: the 12 nm dot for example offers the…

    A UK-based biotech firm is developing a new weapon to kill off the dengue virus. Researchers in Brazil are producing millions of male mosquitoes genetically modified with a gene that kills off their offspring. The plan is to release the GM males into the wild where they will mate with females who will give birth to mosquitoes that carry a gene that kills them before they reach maturity. The scientist say that if done on a large scale, the dengue-carrying mosquito population could be decimated in a matter of months. Ben Gruber reports.

    Many desktop cases that boast about support for very long graphics cards can do it because they have removable HDD cages, or at least one set of bays that can be pulled out. That's not how Raidmax goes about things. Indeed, the company decided to just do away with the HDD bays altogether. It still has three of them (3.5-inch drive bays, that is) but they are located at the bottom of the case. The space where HDDs are usually placed in PCs is left empty.

But in a piece in the New Yorker, contributor Maria Konnikova assembled various reports, studies and anecdotes about the open office concept to find that the whole experiment may be predicated on a flawed premise; in short, the advantages of an open office may be bunk.

    20 Aug 2014 | 7:33 am
    Entertainment fans can look to the Emmys on August 25, 2014 for their fix of traditional Hollywood talent. And they can start early by watching the show’s decadently non-traditional online video promo starring past Emmy Award-winners Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Aaron Paul, and Bryan Cranston. In the video, which you can view on the Television Academy’s YouTube channel, Louis-Dreyfus finds herself in need of some extra cash when she impulsively purchases a personal island after one too many drinks. So she decides to pawn off the Emmy statuette awarded to her in the category of Outstanding…

  • A Fun Way to Mark Your Bible

    I love marking up my Bible when I study. I’m not sure if it’s the graphic designer in me (I like pretty colors) or the former English major coming out (sentence diagrams!!), but I just enjoy dissecting the text and finding the deeper—and much more personal—meaning. A quick flip through my Bible will prove my case. Highlights, underlines, arrows pointing to notes I wrote in the margins, boxes, color coded markings—it’s like a playground for my studious brain. But there’s one problem in this wondrous glory-land I call marking my Bible: It’s hard to find the…

    The following video was made by Grace Church and there is not much more details to go with it, but this video encapsulates so much that I see in church tech. Of course, the video is made tongue and cheek for the humor factor, but there is an element of truth behind every one of the statements made. I wonder how many churches have departments that do not play well together, are not polite to their church techies, and look down on the volunteers and staff. I’d love to hear your own confessionals below and if you need a black bar over your eyes, don’t put your name in it—LOL!

    20 Aug 2014 | 9:08 am
    You'd think that there would be better security than this on traffic lights. With permission from a local road agency, researchers in Michigan hacked into nearly 100 wirelessly networked traffic lights, highlighting security issues that they say are likely to pervade networked traffic infrastructure around the country. More than 40 states currently use such systems to keep traffic flowing as efficiently as possible, helping to reduce emissions and delays. Comments

Crytek co-founder Avni Yerli discussed the damage the company's recent financial woes did to its reputation, explaining to MCV that a longer and more expensive than anticipated "transition to an online company" was the root of the problems. He says they now have a framework in place for the next couple of years, and says they can restore their good name with some good games. Comments

    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. Functions and behaviors that evolved over…

Now anti-robot warriors can also rejoice because IBM has released a video with instructions for surviving a robot apocalypse (see video at the bottom of this post).

    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…

    Very interesting article in the Economist about "Entrepreneurial" vs "Innovation" economics. the whole article is well worth reading as it is one of those very rare items in the UK "Tech Startup" space - a systemic analysis with actual numbers. There are 3 key points dealing with the UK's current Startup / "Every Person is an Entrepreneur" craze: Firstly, State money is wasted on funding too many entrpreneurial SMES with too little money, they do nothing for the economy overall: ....once you take into account the number of SME jobs lost after the first three years of their creation, there is…

    Robobuzz (Source: NESTA - see link in text) As readers of this blog may know, we started watching Robotics again in about 2008* when it became clear to us that the advance of Moore's Law meant that finally enough computer power and battery life made it possible to build robots with all their systems onboard, so they could become self-mobile and (to an extent) self directing. This change was labelled "3rd Generation" robotics (as always it was hyped long before it became reality, but over the last 5 years or so there has been a tipping point), and heralded a "Cambrian Explosion" in new robot…

  • Google's Self Drive Cars - just another Toll Road play

    19 May 2014 | 2:21 am
    From The Atlantic, it would seem that Google self drive cars rely hugely on the information about the road.: Today, you could not take a Google car, set it down in Akron or Orlando or Oakland and expect it to perform as well as it does in Silicon Valley. Here's why: Google has created a virtual track out of Mountain View. A Googler demonstrates what the self-driving car "sees." Note the background world on which the light traffic lights and their sightlines are displayed: that's the track. The key to Google's success has been that these cars aren't forced to process an entire scene from…

    More than four years ago, we wrote about all the buzz that you were hearing about "cyberwar" was little more than an attempt to drum up FUD to get the government to throw billions of dollars at private contractors. We noted that Booz Allen Hamilton (yes, the last employer of one Ed Snowden) had hired former NSA director and also Director of National Intelligence Mike McConnell as its Vice Chairman. He was the leading voice out there screaming about the threat of "cyberwar" getting on TV and having lots of opinion pieces in big name publications -- all of which mentioned his former government…

    In yet another case in which police illegal arrested someone for filming the police, the police have been forced to pay up. Unlike the big Simon Glik case, it appears that the NYPD (under new management!) decided to do its best to settle the case and get it off the books. They're paying $125,000 to Dick George, who recorded police doing one of its infamous stop-and-frisks. According to George's lawsuit, not only did the police arrest George and delete the photos from his camera (after he told the kids who were stopped and frisked to get the cops' badge numbers next time), the police flat out…

    In the continuing furor that is Ferguson, Missouri, someone is finally asking, "Won't anyone think of the poor police officers?" Naturally, the person raising this question is a police officer -- a 17-year veteran of the Los Angeles Police Department. And the question isn't so much being raised as it is being thrown in the reader's face. Sunil Dutta wants to make a point about the difficulties faced by police officers every day. But he does so by boiling down his argument to little more than, "Shut your mouth or I'll beat your ass." Dutta begins by stating the obvious: [C]ops are not…

If someone decides to shut down a service, it's likely your purchases will vanish into the ether along with the service itself. If you want to resell your mp3s or ebooks, you're facing any number of unsettled legal questions and various industries pushing the assertion that your money was exchanged for a limited use license, rather than the acquisition of a product. But there may be some changes forthcoming. As The Digital Reader reports (via Ars Technica), Delaware has just passed a law that…

    20 Aug 2014 | 1:07 am
    Jason Kottke of the always informative and entertaining just posted a very interesting look at the genesis of UK law enforcement. In 1829, the UK government shifted policing from a paramilitary force comprised mainly of volunteers to an organized force comprised of citizens. But it made it very clear that UK police derived their power from the consent of the people, rather than from a government mandate. The government referred to it as "policing by consent," and even though the guiding principles are nearly 200 years old at this point, they still sound revolutionary, especially in…

    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…

    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…

Truth be told, there’s no golden rule, no magic bullet, that guarantees your content will go viral. In fact, most marketing experts have no idea why one post goes viral when another doesn’t achieve that critical mass. However, while viral spread might be the Holy Grail of online marketing, creating content that get shared is more important. You might never attain “viral” status, but good content that’s shared…

    As expected, HTC has just announced a new smartphone with Windows Phone called the HTC One M8 for Windows. The new device is the same as the HTC One M8 with Android, albeit it comes with Windows Phone 8.1 Update 1 preinstalled.

The HTC One M8 for Windows is an exclusive device for U.S. carrier Verizon. Yeah. Good luck, with that.

Signing up is an onerous process, requiring substantial proof of both your identification and address. People post messages, but they are seen only by others in the immediate area, and there is no share or retweet button to proliferate messages across the network. It feels more like a modern update on a message board or web forum than a social network. But it has struck a chord across the country. When The Verge first reported on Nextdoor back in July of 2012, it was in 3,500 neighborhoods.

    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…

    Twitter has dropped support for RSS Feeds but there is a simple solution that you can use to generate RSS feeds for your various Twitter streams including Twitter search results, user timelines, favorites and even Twitter lists. Without RSS feeds, it is difficult to use your Twitter data elsewhere. For instance, you can no longer create recipes in IFTTT that get triggered when there’s a new tweet that @mentions you. You cannot import your Twitter timeline automatically into your blog. You cannot track Twitter search results for certain keywords in your RSS reader. How to Create RSS…

The process was so easy and you could host static websites, Facebook Pages or even JavaScript based apps inside your Google Drive. Well, Google has recently upgraded the Google Drive interface for everyone and, according to the support page, the web hosting feature is no longer available in the new Google Drive.

    The depletion of Internet addresses would seem to spell relief for aged routers that are struggling to deal with the Internet’s growth, but the complicated interplay between those trends might cause even more problems.Last Wednesday, some older routers and switches stumbled when the Internet’s table of routes surpassed 512,000 entries, the maximum they could hold in a special form of memory called TCAM (Ternary Content Addressable Memory). The event drew widespread attention, though it was actually the third time in this young century that the Internet had broken through such a threshold.

    Data access for mobile and web apps has long been a pain point for many businesses, but the problem is becoming increasingly challenging as more and more people turn to turn smartphones as their primary devices. This is putting pressure on businesses to develop apps, and develop them fast.

However, with the recently announced capabilities of DataDirect Cloud, businesses can leverage the Open Data Protocal (OData) to address those issues. For those that…

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

For decades, the key question has been “how valuable is the brand?” The key question moving forward is “how valuable are your apps?” Apple, of course, started this trend with the introduction of the first iPhone, but distilling entire companies…

    The Samsung Galaxy Note 4 is back, and this time it is showing off in the AnTuTu benchmark. The Exynos 5433 touting variant of the Galaxy Note 4 made rounds on AnTuTu and is showing some impressive performance. By impressive, it means that the new processor bested Snapdragon 805 and took the spot close to the Tegra K1 by Nvidia. But considering how we are not going to see that in a smartphone, it is safe to say that currently, the Exynos 5433 is the fastest processor in the smart phone industry. The Note 4 carries the model number N910C for the Exynos 5433 variant and N910S for the Snapdragon…

    Exclusive games once defined the brands they were attached to and were major motivators in terms of console choice. In those days gamers chose the platform that aligned with their taste in gaming, and for the most part, these titles stayed within their selected exclusive boundaries. Even a quick cursory glance at the industry is enough to see that things have longed changed since those days where the Xbox and PlayStation 2 reigned supreme. And the definition of “exclusive” has shifted quite a bit. Now we have concepts like timed-exclusives, pre-loading and a slew of titles across…

    The good folks over a 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.

    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…

    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…

    “If I have seen further it is by standing on the shoulders of giants.” —Isaac Newton There are dozens of great quotes attributed to Newton, but the aforementioned quote is definitely one of my favorites.   As one of the most influential scientists of all time and as a key figure in the scientific revolution, Newton’s contributions have impacted all areas of our lives, especially technology. One of the critical success factors for any tech company is “strategic partnerships.” Nowhere is this more critical, and more relevant, than during a market transition – and that’s…

    Samsung might be experiencing some trouble with the lack of revenue in recent months, but it is not going to hamper the progress of the smartphone manufacturing giant in delivering its flagship devices to the technological populace. While the Galaxy Note 3 was a beast in terms of performance and features, it is about to be usurped by its successor; the Galaxy Note 4, whose specifications have been leaked.

    The e-commerce giant and Jeff Bezos’ Fire Phone might be packed with a lot of great features; but there were initial problems that were to be encountered with the device, as expected. While it is common for software to start developing bugs and issues overtime, the fact that these issues are able to get written off or at the very least mitigated, is very impressive. While the device did not have technical specifications that would leave users awestruck, it has enough features to steal their hearts. The first update for the Fire Phone has allowed users to finally take control of the…

    Depending on how you would like to perceive the idea, the IXION Jet concept either has no windows or it has windows all over. Nevertheless, it will engage every passenger on board with the environment outside. A Paris based design company, Technicon Design, has come up with the concept of IXION Windowless Jet. The idea is to provide a 360 degree view by capturing the scenery using cameras mounted on the plane’s exterior. The interior walls of the aircraft are floor to ceiling monitors that display what the cameras see. Shouldn’t we say, then, that every seat on this plane is a window…

The scary robot swarm was unveiled at Harvard University where roboticists have successfully designed and developed 1024 mini robots called “Kilobots”; each of these robots occupies a space of a couple of inches and has three wired legs to stand on.

      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. There, chances are that a legacy media or a pure-player will find itself in…

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.

    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…

Working at home allows you the freedom to not have to leave the house, a cubicle helps you to focus on your work, and a café allows private work time in a relaxing environment, plus coffee. However, there are also downsides to these as well: at home, you may succumb to lazy behavior, and in a cubicle one can become antisocial. A café may have all the resources you need, but you may feel it necessary to buy something every time you work. A co-working space, however, solves all of these problems. Why, you may ask? Lockers…

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…

    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…

    Continuing along from the previous installment of this series (Using iSCSI to connect to Shared Storage) we’ll take a look at configuring the disks you have attached to your prospective cluster nodes. In the previous article we used one of several methods for connecting to shared storage. Regardless of the method employed, you will continue preparing for your cluster by configuring the disks in the OS of each node. We should all know the steps to initializing disks and creating partitions, but I’ll go through them here, with an additional note or two about some things you’ll…
  • The Dark Side of SQL Server… When Good Queries Go Bad

    Andrew Mayo
    15 Aug 2014 | 5:10 am
    It was said somewhere in Lord of the Rings that Wizards ‘are subtle and quick to anger,’ and substituting ‘SQL Server’ in this phrase proves to be also true. Over the last couple of years I have had a number of issues with SQL Server which specifically involve self-referencing updates. A self-referencing update uses the destination table in the query associated with the update. These problems occasionally cause catastrophic, unpredictable degradation in query performance which has caused CM syncs to suddenly degrade and in some cases never complete. It is becoming evident that…

    I have been involved in creating High Availability solutions for our NightWatchman Enterprise products and as part of that work have recently worked with Windows Failover Clustering and NLB clustering in Windows Server 2012.I thought it might be good to share my experiences with implementing these technologies. I’ve built multi-node failover clusters for SQL Server, Hyper-V, various applications, and Network Load Balancing clusters. The smallest clusters were two node SQL Server clusters. I’ve built 5 node Hyper-V clusters. The largest clusters I’ve built were VMware…
  • HttpClient performance

    Garfield Moore
    11 Aug 2014 | 2:26 am
    I was able to dramatically improve the performance of HttpClient by removing one line of code. Take the below snippet; var httpClientHandler = new HttpClientHandler() { UseDefaultCredentials = true, PreAuthenticate = false, ClientCertificateOptions = ClientCertificateOption.Automatic }; var webclient = new HttpClient(httpClientHandler); The offending line of code is highlighted. This code averaged 20 seconds per 100 requests. Using the default ClientCertificateOption.Manual this improved to 4 seconds. I couldn’t understand why this would be, so I cracked open HttpClient with Jetbrains…

    Nancy DuVergne Smith
    17 Aug 2014 | 11:00 pm
    Living on other planets has seemed a bit farfetched because essential supplies for humans—oxygen and water—are not readily available. Now, MIT is stepping up to the oxygen challenge—for both humans to breathe and rocket fuel to ignite for a homeward journey. You could say MIT has the moxie to invent MOXIE. MOXIE, an oxygen factory for Mars. NASA recently announced that the MIT-led payload, called MOXIE, will be among the seven instruments that will accompany Mars 2020, a planned $1.9 billion roving laboratory similar to the Mars Curiosity.

    16 Aug 2014 | 10:00 pm
    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". Just two weeks later, on 1st September, our new baby had a name and the world was introduced…

After months of preparation for JAB14 I was no longer interested and was determined that this would be my last JAB and probably my last Joomla event. Mood 0/10 I had convinced my JAB teammates to introduce two new features for 2014 and I was no longer certain that the Make it Happen or…

    28 May 2014 | 10:00 pm
    Documentation in any Open Source project is seen as the Holy Grail. It's great to have but somehow never quite fulfils the needs of the users. Joomla has an excellent documentation resource but I think it is fair to categorise these docs mainly as "reference" material and not "user guides". There are some excellent books and some truly awful books but without exception they are generic titles targeted as the site builder or site programmer. If you build sites for people or you have had a site built for you, you don't need or want a thousand page manual, you want a simple twenty page guide…

    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…

    John Myers

    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.

    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.

  • Other States Should “Line” Up Behind California | A Tale of Process, Andreesen & Lyft Line

    Mike Montgomery
    14 Aug 2014 | 9:38 am
    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…

It also has a rather “smallish” 4.7 inch 720p SuperAMOLED screen. Although it looks a bit like an…

  • Twitter Offers Analytics for Organic Tweets

    Dave Paul
    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…

  • Did Author Photos Hurt Google’s PPC? The Proof Is In

    Dave Paul
    17 Jul 2014 | 7:25 am
    Recently, Google made a major change in the way it rewarded authorship. Previously, author portraits were displayed next to any search results tied to a Google+ account. Google took away these portraits with no warning, leaving only a small tagline with the author’s name. While authors may not be pleased, marketers should be. And poof! Google made my author photo vanish into thin air — Cyrus Shepard (@CyrusShepard) June 27, 2014 As discussed last week, this doesn’t change the importance of authorship in the age of content. But the removal of author portraits…

On this matter, the other days I was browsing through some reviews to find out more about my latest favorite game, Dark Souls 2 which by the way, it rocks. 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. I fall instantly in love with that animation and tried to replicate it with CSS, I just couldn't help myself. So, just in…

    Video-chatting startup Rabbit quietly relaunched yesterday as a browser-based video chat application, after a short-lived run as a Mac desktop app in 2013. The app is aimed at creating a completely new video-chatting experience that mimics the real-life experience of walking into a friend’s dorm room or hanging out at a party. What that translates to is the ability to video-chat with 10 friends at once, while sharing videos, games, documents, and movies simultaneously. “We see it as a way to share experiences with people the way you would in real life.

  • Nintendo Is Missing Out On A Huge Opportunity By Not Addressing Diehard Fans In China

    Nintendo has never released a Pokémon game in Chinese. This is a bit of a surprise because Pokémon is Nintendo's second-most lucrative franchise after Mario, has been around for almost 20 years now. It's even more surprising since Nintendo doesn't ignore the Chinese market. According to the South China Morning Post (via Kotaku’s Brian Ashcroft), Nintendo has released China-specific DS and 3DS handheld consoles in the country, under the company’s “iQue” brand, but the Kyoto, Japan-based company has never offered Chinese language support in any of…

The photos, which were first leaked on the Chinese microblogging site Weibo, show a device that's designed like a perfume bottle, complete with a camera nestled inside the bottle's lid that can rotate. Sony appears to be allowing popular Chinese influencers to give the device a try, according to Engadget, though it's still not clear if the device is a standalone phone or simply a camera designed solely for selfies.

    5 May 2014 | 9:04 am
    Segment 1: Web Design Trends You Need to Watch Out For (2:56) Several years ago when the “Web 2.0″ movement hit, I lost my entire freelance business because I didn’t actually know how to code. I had been using MS FrontPage to build static HTML web sites for clients. And the move to dynamic database-driven web sites killed me. That taught me to pay close attention to web trends and to break them down to understand the larger motivations at work. So, I could begin to predict trends and stay ahead of the curve. In this segment, I break down 8 of the hottest web design trends in…

  • How to Rename Files in Linux

    Ivana Isadora Devcic
    20 Aug 2014 | 7:50 am
    Renaming files is not a particularly advanced operation; as long as it’s done on a small number of files, it usually doesn’t require special tools. However, when there’s an entire folder of photos from last year’s vacation waiting to be renamed, it might be wise to consider some time-saving tricks or apps.There are two general approaches to batch file renaming: it can be done either via the command-line interface or by using a standalone application. Linux users already know how powerful the CLI can be, so it shouldn’t be surprising that there are several…

    When developing a website, a web designer needs to be able to see his webpages the same way the end user would. Sometimes simply clicking on and viewing your HTML files in the web browser is enough, but if you want to test dynamic content, you will need to set up a local web server. Doing this is quite simple and can easily be accomplished on Windows, Mac, and Linux. There are many types of web servers available, but we will be using Apache as it is the most common server around, very easy to set up, and compatible with all major operating systems.Set up local web server on LinuxApache was…

    Whenever you boot up your Ubuntu machine, there will be a lot of third party applications and services that will start up automatically with the core services and applications. If you found that your Ubuntu machine bootup is becoming slower and slower, these piled up startup applications could be the cause for it.As some of the applications automatically add themselves to the startup list after installation, it is a good practice to check the list from time to time and remove those that you don’t need during startup.

    PC gaming is an indescribable experience. For some, it’s the pinnacle of performance. For others, it’s just another way to play. One of the most universal reasons that people stick to PC gaming despite the choice of consoles out there is because of the way that the added hardware boost can create a rich graphical experience. But what if you wanted to play on the PC using console gaming accessories such as the ubiquitous game pad/controller? Well, you could always buy a game controller yourself (or use one from a console system), but there are a couple of things you have to bear in…

    What would be the average size of pendrives commonly in use? May be 8 or 16 GB? Kingston’s HyperX 256GB pendrive is a Bigdata in your pocket. It breaks the usual data capacities of pendrives to offer a whooping 256GB pendrive. As time grows, so does the amount of data we need to carry with us.

Anyone who buys a new pen drive decides to go for a minimum 16GB pen drive today considering the very small price difference from the 8 GB ones. Kingston also has 1TB pendrives but not much affordable for all, but this one is to some. We made a…

    If you debate with trolls you soon learn some of their tactics.Flickr/Kenny Louie, CC BYI often like to discuss science online and I’m also rather partial to topics that promote lively discussion, such as climate change, crime statistics and (perhaps surprisingly) the big bang. This inevitably brings out the trolls. “Don’t feed the trolls” is sound advice, but I’ve ignored it on occasion – including on The Conversation and Twitter – and I’ve been rewarded. Not that I’ve changed the minds of any trolls, nor have I expected to. But I have received an education in the tactics…

Today, Barnes and Noble is releasing Galaxy Tab 4 NOOK. While Amazon's Kindle Fire tablets do not have standard Android or access to Google's Play Store, this new tablet does.

    There is no doubt that technology is an integral part of helping businesses reach the top of their industry. Ironically, the IT department can be a barrier to innovation and technological change. This is as a result of being indentured to legacy IT, which is having a huge impact on the ability to keep up with consumer and market demand. Budgetary limitations and the sheer challenge of upgrading or replacing an aging system are often behind the reluctance to embrace change. If properly planned and approached, businesses can mitigate the perceived risks and issues and reap the benefits from…

Usually no-one cares -- it’s supposed to be spontaneous, that’s that point -- but sometimes you just can’t get any kind of picture, no matter what you try. Snap Clap is a simple Android app which helps out by taking a photo when you clap your hands. No stretching or contortions is required, just position the camera as required, walk into shot and clap your hands. A four second countdown and a flashing light tells you Snap Clap has activated, then the photo is taken. If…

    Joe Kinsella

    The founder & CTO of Sonian, Greg Arnette, recently suggested I read 10% Happier, the personal journey of an ABC correspondent who discovered meditation as a way to calm his “monkey mind.” I’d never heard of monkey mind before, which is a Buddhist term that means "unsettled; restless; capricious; whimsical; fanciful; inconstant; confused; indecisive; uncontrollable". But after reading the book and attempting my first almost laughable meditation session, I self-diagnosed myself with a serious case of chronic monkey mind. It’s amazing I never noticed it before, but I sometimes have…
  • 6 Things You Might Not Know About Amazon Reserved Instances

    Joe Kinsella
    13 Aug 2014 | 5:21 am
    Reserved instances allow you to make a one-time payment to Amazon in return for a discount on your compute costs. The rationale for reserved pricing is simple: by getting customers to commit to the usage of specific infrastructure, Amazon can better manage their capacity, and therefore pass these savings on to their customers. By now we are all likely well aware of the various options for reserved instances, including types (Heavy, Medium, Light) and terms (1 and 3 year). But here are 6 thing you may not know about reserved instances. 1 - The Dual Benefits Reserved instances provide two…
  • CloudFront: A Low Cost Alternative To Premium CDNs

    Joe Kinsella
    8 Aug 2014 | 1:25 pm
    I've been noticing a steady uptick in the interest in Amazon CloudFront recently, driven by what appears to be a commoditization in the CDN market. This market shift is opening up an opportunity for less feature rich / more cost effective offerings to compete with the premium services such as Akamai. One of the challenges in adopting CloudFront as your CDN is that it is not a premium service. It lacks many of the features and tools users have come to expect from more sophisticated offerings. But in return it has one compelling advantage: it is cheap. So for those of you looking to gain the…
  • Sprint Planning at CloudHealth

    Joe Kinsella

    While sprint planning is an important activity for any software development organization, it takes on a new level of criticality in a startup. A good sprint planning process can improve the likelihood for success of a young company; a bad one can directly contribute to its failure. So I’m always curious to hear how others run their sprint planning, in part to pilfer new ideas, but also since it provides incredible insight into how other organizations work (note: nothing reveals the good, bad and ugly of an organization faster than attending a sprint planning meeting). So I thought I’d…

    I remember the moment I realized I wanted to spend the rest of my career building software. I was at my first job post-college, in my early twenties, and in the office at 9 PM writing code. The company I had joined was on the verge of spiraling out of control, I was working yet another 70+ hour week, and my team was under intense pressure for what seemed like an impossible deadline. But all I could remember thinking is: "I can't believe I'm getting paid to do this job!" In over 20 years, that passion for building software has never left me. I've performed almost every role in a software…
