  • 6 Things You Should Be Doing on Instagram

    26 Nov 2014 | 8:00 am
    While most people push the importance of Facebook and Twitter for their church’s social media engagement, I’ve found — at least for student ministry in a big city area — that Instagram has been the most fruitful and effective platform for interacting with my audience. I find that most churches treat Instagram as the metaphorical sidecar of their marketing, but its popularity among those in their teens and twenties has made it a strong tool for engaging your audience. Unfortunately, because churches seem to be so late to the Instagram game, I see many organizations that just…

    27 Nov 2014 | 2:48 am
    It may sound like the first chapter of a Quatermass thriller, but scientists from the University of Zurich have discovered that DNA can survive not only a flight through space, but also re-entry into the Earth's atmosphere, and still remain active. The findings are based on suborbital rocket flights and could have considerable impact on questions about the origins of life on Earth and the problems of terrestrial space probes contaminating other planets...

    27 Nov 2014 | 3:45 am
    Wild turkeys were “everywhere” on Cape Cod, despite having once been extinct in Massachusetts. The birds were also booming again in Ohio, Florida, Texas, Michigan, Minnesota, Iowa, and New Jersey, where turkey numbers had increased a thousand-fold since 1977, when 22 wild turkeys were brought in from New York and Vermont to restock what was then a virtually turkey-less state. A New Jersey biologist now assured the public: “I think that they are here to stay,” and a local Op-Ed writer attributed the turkey’s success, in part, to polygamy.

    Harry McCracken
    3 Nov 2014 | 12:34 pm
    Back in the summer of 1997, I got my one and only assignment for a magazine called The Web, back when it seemed like it made sense to publish reviews and profiles relating to websites on dead trees. It turned out to be one of the most entertaining projects I ever worked on: I profiled Tom and Ray Magliozzi, better known as Click and Clack of public radio’s Car Talk. When I saw the sad news today that Tom had passed away at 77, the memories came flooding back. I made contact with the Car Talk team by getting the phone number of their production company. In 1997, you did that by calling…

The loss would be incalculable no matter what the circumstances, but it feels especially jarring and surreal given the bright future Jim was building for himself. Along with his wife Charlotte, he’d just switched coasts from New York to San Francisco in order to start a media consultancy. (I got the LinkedIn notification formally announcing the news just yesterday morning.) Jim’s most obvious legacy will be his work as a…

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. Across its brands, GM is being particularly aggressive about rolling out in-vehicle LTE connectivity. Most Buick models,…

    26 Nov 2014 | 3:27 am
    'Interstellar' Gets Big Boost from Imax Sales: Brent Lang: Keeping “Interstellar” on its large screens, which charge at least $3 more than the average movie ticket, has made it the preferred destination for moviegoers to experience wormholes, distant planets and Matthew McConaughey on the biggest possible canvas. The result: “Interstellar” has earned more than a quarter of its domestic gross from 360 Imax locations in the U.S. and roughly 11% of its international haul from the format. If that U.S. percentage holds, it will be the first film in Imax history to crack 25% in terms of…

And if he did have them, Rodgers would know. Besides reviewing the coaches’ film, which shows all 22 players on the field from above, Rodgers watches the network broadcast of a game. The microphones on the field improve the experience for fans watching on television, but they are anathema to a quarterback like Rodgers,…

That's because the folks behind Wikipedia actually see a non-neutral Internet as one way to spread information cheaply to users in developing countries. With Wikipedia Zero, users in places like Pakistan and Malaysia can browse the site without it counting it counting against the data caps on their cellphones or tablets. This…

And 8 months later, after millions of dollars invested in a gigantic search operation, there is still no sign of the aircraft. Now, Australia is developing a new model to predict where the debris of the missing MH370 could wash up. Authorities had initially predicted that the plane's wreckage could drift and come ashore on Indonesia's West Sumatra island after about 4 months of Flight MH370's disappearance.

  • Consortium Roadmap Shows 100TB Hard Drives Possible By 2025

    26 Nov 2014 | 7:03 pm
    Lucas123 writes An industry consortium made up by leading hard disk drive manufacturers shows they expect the areal density of platters to reach 10 terabits per square inch by 2025, which is more than 10 times what it is today. At that density, hard disk drives could conceivably hold up to 100TB of data. Key to achieving greater bit density is Heat-Assisted Magnetic Recording (HAMR) and Bit Patterned Media Recording (BPMR). While both HAMR and BPMR will increase density, the combination of both technologies in 2021 will drive it to the 10Tbpsi level, according to the Advanced Storage…

According to the results of an extensive survey published this week, the majority of the world's citizens agree. The CIGI-Ipsos Global Survey on Internet Security and Trust, commissioned by the Centre for International Governance Innovation (CIGI) and conducted by global research company Ipsos, surveyed more than 23,000 Internet users across 24 countries between Oct. 7. and Nov. 12.

    The Court of Justice of the European Union ruled in May 2014 that search engines — Google included — must give people the possibility to have their personal information erased under certain conditions. Google has complied with the court's decision, which became widely known as "the right to be forgotten," but it only applied to Google's European sites On Wednesday, the European Union's data protection authorities have adopted a new set of guidelines regarding the court's decision, requiring Google to extend the rule to the rest of the Internet as well See also: Google Received…

    U.S operation forces took part in a rescue mission that freed eight hostages in a remote corner of Yemen, but a Yemeni official said Wednesday that it did not liberate five others, including an American journalist and a Briton who were moved elsewhere by their Al-Qaeda captors days before the raid. Eight hostages — including a Saudi— were liberated in the joint U.S.-Yemeni operation, a rare instance of American forces intervening on the ground in Yemen.

  • Iconic holiday gifts that belong in the history books

    Jillian Kumagai
    27 Nov 2014 | 3:04 am
    Most of us probably can't remember what gifts we got for the holidays last year, much less 10 years ago, but we can remember the most iconic presents: the ones we wanted because everyone else did, too. Remember the Red Ryder BB Gun in A Christmas Story? That was the most influential gift in 1938. In the 1940s, the slinky came on the scene, and Lego conquered the 1950s, gaining a popularity that has not since receded (unlike 1975's pet rock). Whether these gifts continue to pop up or have already been long forgotten, you probably still remember the Rubik's Cube you received in 1980, or the…

  • Lessons On Censorship From Syria's Internet Filter Machines

    Emiliano De Cristofaro
    26 Nov 2014 | 7:39 pm
    Norwegian writer Mette Newth once wrote that: "Censorship has followed the free expressions of men and women like a shadow throughout history." As we develop new means to gather and create information, new means to control, erase and censor that information evolve alongside it. Today, that means access to information through the internet, which motivates us to study internet censorship. Organizations such as Reporters Without Borders, Freedom House, or the Open Net Initiative periodically report on the extent of censorship worldwide. But as countries that are fond of censorship are not…
  • DC Police Department Budgets Its Asset Forfeiture Proceeds Years In Advance

    26 Nov 2014 | 6:18 pm
    Asset forfeiture may be the greatest scam perpetuated on the American people by their government -- and it's all legal. For the most part, assets seized translate directly to monetary or physical gains for the agencies doing the seizing, an act often wholly separated from any American ideals of due process. The New York Times recently obtained recording of asset forfeiture conferences which showed prosecutors advising cops on how to best exploit these programs to obtain additional funds and goods for their respective law enforcement agencies. In short, it appears that many agencies use asset…

    Those of us in the US will be thankful tomorrow for a bunch of things, and we'll probably be eating unusually large meals. For those of us who aren't accustomed to entertaining guests, the timing of cooking a big meal often gets hung up in the food preparation -- taking too long to chop vegetables and such. So here are just a few tips on how to cut up some foods. (You're welcome.) Do you have trouble cutting open a pomegranate? There are at least a couple methods that claim to be better than just chopping it in half and starting to peel at random. [url] Most folks don't really need to cut…
  • The OTHER Government Revolving Door: Sheriff's Departments, State Troopers Provide New Homes For Bad Cops

    Tim Cushing
    26 Nov 2014 | 3:52 pm
    It's not just our nation's legislators that enjoy a "revolving door" -- one that moves them from Congress to the private sector and back again, to the mutual benefit of legislators and certain industries… not so much the rest of America. There's another revolving door out there -- one that keeps bad cops employed in the law enforcement sector. It's incredibly difficult for police departments to shed their "bad apples," what with police unions pushing back hard on the few occasions that the blue line fails to hold. But even if they do manage to cut one loose, there's a good chance this…

Vic Hyder and Mike Janke, two former Navy SEALs with the company Silent Circle, say that the FBI’s plan to block phone makers and service providers from offering phone encryption would make it significantly more difficult for deployed people to communicate back home and even for members of the intelligence community to communicate with…

  • Surfer’s Point Half Marathon 2014 Race Report

    17 Nov 2014 | 9:40 pm
    After tackling the XTERRA Point Mugu 18K Trail Race in October, I decided to do the Santa to the Sea Half Marathon in December next. But that left me with two months without races and I got impatient. I was looking through my timeline on the Strava site when I saw that tri-athlete Anthony Grey was in his last weeks of training for the Surfer’s Point Full Marathon. After that I signed up for the half marathon or the race to be held on Nov. 16, 2014. One of the features of the race is that when you cross the finish line you get a nice beer and some real tacos. Who can say no to tacos?
  • XTERRA Point Mugu 18K Trail Race Report – 2014

    12 Oct 2014 | 11:19 pm
    After the last two weeks of abnormally hot weather on the Central Coast, things finally cooled down and my running heated up some at the 2014 XTERRA Point Mugu 18K trail race. The race took place today, October 12, 2014, at Point Mugu State Park in Malibu, just a few miles south of Oxnard. It’s been a year and a half since I first started my fitness journey and about a year since running became a big part of that trek. My first trail race was the XTERRA Malibu Creek 22K which was extremely challenging, so much so that I immediately signed up for the Bulldog 25K which pretty…
  • Bulldog 25K at Malibu Creek State Park Race Report

    26 Aug 2014 | 6:49 am
    I completed the Bulldog 25K trail race this past weekend, August 23 2014. This was my longest and only second trail race. After doing the XTERRA Malibu Creek Challenge 22K race in May, I had started eyeing the Bulldog race and immediately started training for it. I took a bit of circuitous route though, doing a series of 5K races including the Father’s Day 5K race and three of the fun “Boogie Nights” 5K races that were held on Wednesday afternoons near Surfer’s Point in Ventura. The other element that I added was some comprehensive trail running. Between May and August…

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

    19 May 2014 | 7:44 am

The good news was that it wasn’t as hot as it had been all week (high 90’s and low 100’s) but it was still plenty hot in the high 80’s. This was my first of hopefully many trail races and it was a bit of a beast. I decided to do the race about three weeks ago and only had one chance to check out part of the course. I blogged about that experience in my pre-race report. Having never tried to tackle the infamous Bulldog Road portion of the course before, I tried to figure out how tough it…

    The iPhone has proven itself to be a phenomenal seller, but no company is capable of maintaining a forward momentum perpetually – it is basically an impossibility in the long run of things. Which means, Apple, despite its massive market capitalization, is still liable to make some mistakes – and the iPhone 5c might be seen as one of them. After all, the existing iPhone range right now comprises of the iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, iPhone 5s, and iPhone 5c, and out of the lot, the iPhone 5c can be said to be very different from the pack.

Yet Motorola seems to have beat the odds already, sending out sweet over-the-air packages for 2014 X variants on Verizon.

  • The One Really Important Apple Watch Thing

    Chris Maxcer
    26 Nov 2014 | 5:00 am
    While the cellphone nearly killed the wristwatch, the Apple Watch gizmo actually will revive it. In fact, I think the attention that the Apple Watch will bring to our wrists will spark sales of traditional watches. Why? I believe there is a latent desire to have a wristwatch -- to have the convenience of the time on your wrist without the need to pull out your smartphone and ignore the world around you. I think -- hope -- that the Apple Watch actually will lead people to slow down the movement of hand to pocket and pocket to face.

    The Practice of Cloud System Administration, Volume 2 is a look into IT gone bad in some companies, and how doing it right can salvage enterprise use of cloud computing. The authors make 11 statements about computers and their networks on the first page of the book's preface. They ask which statements are true. If you get most of them correct, you probably have only one reason left to read this book: It will challenge some of what you hold valid. However, you most likely will get numerous wrong answers.

    A sophisticated malware program called "Regin" has been used in systematic spying campaigns against a range of international targets since at least 2008, Symantec reported. Regin is a backdoor-type Trojan with a structure that displays a degree of technical competence rarely seen in malware, according to Symantec. "Its elegance is comparable to Stuxnet and [it is] much more elegant than Flame," said Scott Borg, CEO of the U.S. Cyber Consequences Unit. "It's a beautiful piece of architecture."

    Has software glut got you down? Do you reuse passwords because creating unique ones for all your online accounts would cause a memory overload? If your answer to those questions is yes, you may be interested in a bit of jewelry called the "Everykey," by a startup with the same name. Everykey is a wristband that, combined with software and the cloud, removes the need to remember the countless log-in credentials we use every day. What's more, it will work with electronic locks, too -- like car doors.

    Well Thanksgiving week is upon us here in the land of stars and stripes, and in anticipation of all the social events soon to besiege us, more than a few Linux bloggers have been practicing keeping their favorite barstools warm down at the blogosphere's Punchy Penguin Saloon. How chilly would those stools get if we were all flitting here and there from this party to that? It would be truly unkind. Much better to stay put and keep to ourselves in a comfortable place where inane small talk is frowned upon.

    For what seemed like an eternity the mobile rumour mill was tearing itself apart with conflicting reports on whether or not apple would include sapphire glass in the iPhone 6. It did not, and then Apple’s supplier went bankrupt ending many a person’s sapphire display dreams. Those people are in luck, because apparently Foxconn have opened a factory specifically to make sapphire glass displays. For those of you who don’t know, Foxconn is the manufacturing company that makes a very large number of components for the popular mobile companies — including Apple. According…

    The EU’s ruling to allow people the ‘right to be forgotten’ in the context of search engine results has been controversial. Google is against it, news outlets are against it, Wikipedia’s Jimmy Wales is against it, and so it Web creator Tim Berners-Lee. The EU is sticking to its guns, however, and has now suggested that the ruling should be enforced worldwide — not just in EU territories.

The ad itself features a large number of celebrities all wearing a pair of the new Beats Solo2 headphones, with the entire thing shot from the perspective of a phone’s front camera. That’s right, this advert is all about selfies for some reason and #SoloSelfie seems to be the main focus of the video itself. If I were to guess I’d say…

By doing so it will be able to serve you adverts that are supposedly more relevant, meaning you’re more likely to click them and earn Twitter money. Don’t worry too much, though. Unlike…

According to the British Phonographic Industry (BPI), sales this year look set to hit 1.2m – up from around 780,000 last year – and slightly more than the 1.08m sold in 1996, when we were all presumably listening to (What’s The Story) Morning Glory? and Three Lions on record players.

    24 Nov 2014 | 2:07 am
    MRAM developer Crocus Technology developed a new MRAM-based magnetic sensor that can be used to detect the shape and bendability of flexible displays. The idea is that you place a sensor every 5 cm or so (depending on the display size and bending radius) and this allows you to determine whether the display is bent and in which way.A flexible sensor such as this can be used to correct the image that gets deformed when bent. It can also be used potentially for UI purposes - similar to Nokia's Kinetic prototype phone shown in 2011.Read more about MRAM-based magnetic sensors to help flexible OLED…

Basically it is a very simple sensor that detects changes in a magnetic field from a perpendicular magnet.Crocus thinks that this sensor can be used as a mechanical sensor for flexible displays.

    9 Dec 2014 | 9:00 am
    Topic: Starting the quality system from scratchDescription of Topic:The opportunity to establish a new quality system from scratch has three potential results. The most rewarding is a cross-functional systems approach that balances quality activities to achieve product performance requirements and meeting internal and external customer requirements (needs & wants). The least desired outcome is a failed quality system that is so dysfunctional that it threatens the organization’s very existence. The final result is a quality system operating between the extremes of the above-described…

  • Do These Charts Accurately Rank Thanksgiving Sides?

    What do you get when you mix Thanksgiving with a bunch of startup people? Charts. That’s what. Okay, well, at least that’s what I thought of when I saw some recent charts published by Vox (because, you know…startups like data…or something). In an article titled “A definitive ranking of Thanksgiving sides”, Vox created a bunch of charts that aimed to rank various traditional Thanksgiving sides. To determine popularity, they plotted sides per certain factors, including: taste over time, availability over time, how much effort it took to make the dish vs. how…

Hell, every Sunday morning I’m thankful for football (aka RedZone), but this year I started digging into the world of daily fantasy football contests.

    For most, the holidays are a time for people to get reunited with friends and family, and simply to celebrate and relive the days of yore. For startups in particular, it’s a time for founder and employees alike to step away briefly from the daily grind to appreciate everything else they have going for them. What’s significant, though, is the increasing number of startups that are using the holidays to give back to those who may not have the graces of supportive networks or resources. With Thanksgiving right around the corner, we reached out to startups to see whether they’d…

    The FarCry series seems to grow by one every other year or so, and it's always a name we hear when it comes to free game bundles from AMD and/or NVIDIA. Now, though, a different company is offering a giveaway. Solid state drives may no longer be so disadvantaged compared to hard disk drives, but they still possess higher price and lower capacity. Those drawbacks can't be offset that easily, although they are high-end storage units so the price, at least, doesn't sting as much (high-end custo... (read more)

    During the winter, it is great if a building can capture and hold heat. Summers, though, can go well past human comfort zone in that regard, and it's the Sun that gets pointed fingers again. Stanford researchers believe they can do something about that. Buildings can grow really hot during summer days, especially if there are no clouds and if they are located close to the equator or tropics. Even if there is no tar layer (to insulate against rain), concrete itself can grow hot enough to burn... (read more)

  • Google Chromebook quietly takes aim at the enterprise

    21 Oct 2014 | 6:43 am
    When Google introduced Chromebook for Work recently, it very likely made the Chromebook even more attractive to frugal enterprises. While the price tag has always been a draw, having administrative control should appeal to IT and could facilitate more Chromebook use in the enterprise in the future.

According to a survey on online and gaming habits in the UK carried out by the Internet Advertising Bureau in 2014, 54% of respondents said that their number one place to game was on their phone.

Jamming the servers for three minutes allowing them to have full control of the movement of the dice and they steal a fortune from the casino. Of course, this is fiction, but there have been plenty of devices used over the years to cheat at casinos. Not all of them were successful and many cheaters have been caught in the act and ejected from the…

    As the Italian Presidency of the European Union enters into its final stretch, cybersecurity remains a priority for both Italy and the European Union. This became abundantly clear during a cybersecurity policy workshop in Rome last week attended by leading security experts from academia, public and private sector. For Italy, this focus goes beyond leading (and hopefully concluding), the negotiations on the Network and Information Security (NIS) Directive, although clearly this is and remains one of the highest priorities of the Italian presidency.

    I guess that is what AT&T gets for talking out its AS&S. Earlier this month AT&T responded to the President's clear support of Title II by bluffing and claiming they were freezing all fiber investment to "up to" 100 cities. If you've been around here for a while you know that AT&T's plans to deploy fiber to 100 cities was always a heavy dose of smoke and mirrors to begin with. In their heavily-redacted response letter to the FCC this week, AT&T basically walks back their bluff, insisting that the FCC misunderstood what they said. Comments

My interest is twofold (well threefold, but we will get to that): - Firstly, exploration of space is always fascinating and who knows what we will learn from this (It's quite scary the number of people arguing this is a a waste of money!) - Secondly, it's another episode in the application of the advances in modern Robotics - and for a good, not a dystopian, outcome. The potential of robotics is well showcased here - the downside (surveillance by Philae's…

  • Smart socks for dumb smartphone users

    13 Oct 2014 | 6:53 am
    Two things on the Broadstuff Towers spike, both to so with putting a sock over your smartphone: Firstly, Yondr, for the text-addicted: Two weeks ago, I heard about a new company called Yondr that was making lightweight smartphone socks-with-locks that prevent the smartphone's user from accessing the device during a concert, movie, or party. ...... Preventing fans from accessing their phones during a show might seem like an extraordinary step, especially in tech-centric San Francisco.

    8 Oct 2014 | 9:25 am
    Fascinating article on Pando Daily about how the VC community has moved from funding high potential people to funding Assholes: Here’s the problem. Every venture capitalist, in every interview they’ve ever done will tell you the same casual lie: That they invest in people first and ideas second. They’ll tell you they invest only in people they’d want to work with. They’ll tell you that they have the luxury to say no to companies that don’t do things in line with the way they like to work, the way they like to treat people. You don’t have to look too far into this year’s…

    It's always fun to look at all the various predictions of the Next New Things (given they vary quite widely by predictor, by year - us being no exception). Anyway, here are Gartners for the next few years (abridged by Broadstuff) 1) By 2018, digital business will require 50 percent less business process workers and 500 percent more key digital business jobs, compared with traditional models. Near-Term Flag: By year-end 2016, 50 percent of digital transformation initiatives will be unmanageable due to lack of portfolio management skills, leading to a measurable negative lost market share. 2)…

  • U.S Government Takes A Strong Stand Against Encryption

    21 Nov 2014 | 1:06 am
    Consumer electronic giants Google and Apple have now introduced a new encryption technology in their smartphones in an attempt to protect the privacy of their users. This new encryption technology makes it almost impossible for external entities to access and decipher sensitive information, this includes picture, text messages and e-mails. While this may come as good news to users, the U.S Department Of Justice has taken a strong stand against this level of encryption. The DOJ has sent notice’s to Google and Apple regarding this tech.

    The Indian Post is the world’s largest postal network with 1.55 lakh registered post offices. In the recent past, the Indian post had faced a significant decline in terms of volume of business. This was primarily due to the Internet. The internet rendered the traditional concept of writing letters almost obsolete. However, the same internet has now created a business opportunity that has been valued at almost 9 billion dollars for the same sector it almost destroyed a few years ago. This opportunity has come in the form of “last mile” delivery for the booming e-commerce…

  • Lessons On Censorship From Syria's Internet Filter Machines

    Emiliano De Cristofaro
    26 Nov 2014 | 7:39 pm
    Norwegian writer Mette Newth once wrote that: "Censorship has followed the free expressions of men and women like a shadow throughout history." As we develop new means to gather and create information, new means to control, erase and censor that information evolve alongside it. Today, that means access to information through the internet, which motivates us to study internet censorship. Organizations such as Reporters Without Borders, Freedom House, or the Open Net Initiative periodically report on the extent of censorship worldwide. But as countries that are fond of censorship are not…
  • DC Police Department Budgets Its Asset Forfeiture Proceeds Years In Advance

    Tim Cushing
    26 Nov 2014 | 6:18 pm
    Asset forfeiture may be the greatest scam perpetuated on the American people by their government -- and it's all legal. For the most part, assets seized translate directly to monetary or physical gains for the agencies doing the seizing, an act often wholly separated from any American ideals of due process. The New York Times recently obtained recording of asset forfeiture conferences which showed prosecutors advising cops on how to best exploit these programs to obtain additional funds and goods for their respective law enforcement agencies. In short, it appears that many agencies use asset…

    Those of us in the US will be thankful tomorrow for a bunch of things, and we'll probably be eating unusually large meals. For those of us who aren't accustomed to entertaining guests, the timing of cooking a big meal often gets hung up in the food preparation -- taking too long to chop vegetables and such. So here are just a few tips on how to cut up some foods. (You're welcome.) Do you have trouble cutting open a pomegranate? There are at least a couple methods that claim to be better than just chopping it in half and starting to peel at random. [url] Most folks don't really need to cut…
  • The OTHER Government Revolving Door: Sheriff's Departments, State Troopers Provide New Homes For Bad Cops

    Tim Cushing
    26 Nov 2014 | 3:52 pm
    It's not just our nation's legislators that enjoy a "revolving door" -- one that moves them from Congress to the private sector and back again, to the mutual benefit of legislators and certain industries… not so much the rest of America. There's another revolving door out there -- one that keeps bad cops employed in the law enforcement sector. It's incredibly difficult for police departments to shed their "bad apples," what with police unions pushing back hard on the few occasions that the blue line fails to hold. But even if they do manage to cut one loose, there's a good chance this…

    While FBI director James Comey discusses all the inevitable horrors encrypted phones are poised to wreak on the nation's youth, those in the encryption business are pointing out how encrypted phones make things safer for our nation's military. Vic Hyder and Mike Janke, two former Navy SEALs with the company Silent Circle, say that the FBI’s plan to block phone makers and service providers from offering phone encryption would make it significantly more difficult for deployed people to communicate back home and even for members of the intelligence community to communicate with…

    "People are talking about women and games seriously; people are taking the critiques seriously," Sarkeesian says as she stirs her tea. "It's been a huge shift. This discussion is becoming more mainstream." A blond woman sitting at the next table before an array of New York City street maps begins squirming excitedly in her seat. "Are you talking about the article about gaming in the New York Times yesterday? I read it!" she says excitedly. "Did you write that? It was great!" Fantastic article, horrible title (hence why I'm using a generic placeholder title instead). She's not gaming's…

  • Apple could ditch Google for Bing or Yahoo next year

    25 Nov 2014 | 3:38 pm
    Google risks losing its spot as the default search provider in Apple's Safari browser next year, according to a report from The Information. The latest extension of a deal that's put Google Search in the hands of iPhone owners since 2007 is set to expire in 2015, and Mountain View rivals Microsoft and Yahoo are already making a case for change with Apple's leadership. Per the report, each company has pitched Apple SVP Eddy Cue on the idea of replacing Google as the default iOS search provider; Microsoft wants Bing to be the default option out of the box, and Yahoo is vying for the same spot.
  • God's lonely programmer

    25 Nov 2014 | 12:49 pm
    TempleOS is more than an exercise in retro computing, or a hobbyist's space for programming close to the bare metal. It's the brainchild - perhaps the life's work - of 44-year-old Terry Davis, the founder and sole employee of Trivial Solutions. For more than a decade Davis has worked on it; today, TempleOS is 121,176 lines of code, which puts it on par with Photoshop 1.0. (By comparison, Windows 7, a full-fledged modern operating system designed to be everything to everyone, filled with decades of cruft, is ​about 40 million lines.)

  • IoT Meets an Everyday Need – Automatic Drink Chilling

    Deepesh Agarwal
    27 Nov 2014 | 1:11 am
    Today, its hard to imagine that for every job-to-be-done there isn't an appliance, tool, or flashy new phone app specifically designed for each situation. This Thanksgiving for example, my mother-in-law showed off some of her newest kitchen gadgets, including a turkey lifting hook. The hook helps you take the turkey off the roasting rack and get it onto the serving plate. That's a pretty specific solution for an infrequent (although potentially challenging) job. However, who hasn't experienced placing a soda, beer or bottle of wine in the freezer, just to have it freeze solid and sometimes…

  • Let's Encrypt - Free, Automated, and Open SSL Certification Service

    Deepesh Agarwal
    21 Nov 2014 | 2:11 am
    With so much of personal and sensitive information flowing through internet which can be easily tapped into, end-to-end encryption should be the default mode of online communication. But to achieve that website owners not only need to purchase SSL certificates from verified registry's but also have to install(takes 2-3 hours), and manage them which makes them keep using HTTP instead of HTTPS. Let’s Encrypt is all set to change that, the new "free certificate authority" lets everyone be up and running with basic server certificates for their domains through a simple one-click process.

    (See Update) November 14, 2014, via Reuters: Of 16 Glass app makers contacted by Reuters, nine said that they had stopped work on their projects or abandoned them, mostly because of the lack of customers or limitations of the device. Three more have switched to developing for business, leaving behind consumer projects. Last year, I observed in a post–one that included an email exchange  with Don Norman of Nielson-Norman and author of The Design of Everyday Things–that I believed the product release of Google Glass was bungled by Google.

    3 Nov 2014 | 6:26 pm
    First: A Flashback to the year 2006 when I blogged all year about stories I’d see regarding flying cars. The truth is, you could pick out any year and read just as many articles about people who are going to start having a commercial version of a flying car next July. For some reason, next July is always far enough in the future so reporters will forget to check back in. Anyway, I just saw this and thought it was too 2006 to pass up.

  • When Responsive Design Meets SEO Headline Writing

    Rex Hammock
    1 Nov 2014 | 7:06 am
    In the olden days of print, there was a term called “orphan ” that referred to a headline or paragraph with a lonely word dangling on a line by itself. The copy editor would rewrite it “to get rid of the orphan.” (For a discussion of widows and orphans, see: Today, when we all read our news on various size screens on sites with “responsive design,” the headline length is not measured by “size” but by its relationship to the width of a container that I’ll just call “a column” (i.e., 100% of…

    You can no longer afford to not have a mobile-friendly website that isn’t readable or usable on a mobile phone. That’s because Google is now clearly marking websites (screenshot) in mobile search results that it considers mobile friendly and if that tag isn’t getting displayed around your content, your website may see a drop in mobile traffic. Responsive design is definitely the way to go but will that be enough. How do you confirm if your web pages are considered mobile friendly by Google? There are quite a few options.

That sounds like basements across the country! With such an unstructured environment, though, companies are still struggling with the hardware and software needed to process everything and make it possible to work across systems, apps, infrastructures, etc. This means that while we may not quite be living in the age of “data lakes,” we might…

A recent article by Matt Asay at InfoWorld argues that though Hadoop gets all of the credit for big data’s popularity, it’s actually NoSQL databases that are more often deployed. In fact, “while shopping for a Hadoop vendor is relatively straightforward, picking a NoSQL database is anything but. There are, after all, in excess of 100 NoSQL databases.” Matt lists MongoDB, HBase and Cassandra as three NoSQL databases to watch.

Benefits of this tool could be harnessed by large companies with good effect. It has the potential to improve the efficiency of the company and to save lots of money spent on travelling.

According to a report by The Wall Street Journal GoPro is looking to enter the drone market with a variety of products priced between $500 and $1000.

    26 Nov 2014 | 8:42 pm
    Uber has not had a great month for publicity, with all sorts of accusations being directed at the company for its business model and behaviour. Now, the company faces another PR challenge as a security researcher has found that the company’s Android app hoovers up all sorts of data on its users. According to security researcher Joe Giron, Uber’s app sends back a litany of data from the user’s phone — most of it unrelated to the apps functionality. Below is a list of the data that Uber sends back from the user’s phone: – Accounts log – App Activity – App Data Usage – App…

    The GoPro Hero4 has long been awaited by consumers as the company’s affordable 4K camera. And when they announced the GoPro Hero4 Black, a lot of people were excited to finally get their hands on a GoPro that can finally do 4K at 30 FPS as opposed to a semi-slideshow 4K 15 FPS which the GoPro Hero3+ Black Edition was capable of in the previous generation. So, they increased the camera’s capability of recording 4K video from 15 FPS to 30 FPS and somehow they are now claiming that this camera is now worth an extra $100. Yes, it does have an improved Wi-Fi chipset that has better…

    Is your recently updated Nexus 5 or SHIELD tablet feeling slow after the Lollipop update? You probably are going to need to do a factory reset. Keep in mind that if you do a factory reset you will lose all locally stored data that hasn’t been backed up to the cloud. That usually means music files, photos (if you don’t have Google+ auto backup enabled), app settings and authorizations and other settings. Most of these things will be saved for you if you are using all of Google’s cloud services, but local music and other files will not be backed up so back those up before you…

    Even when you have meetings all day… Even when you’re at a trade show… Even when you’re on the road, calling on one customer after another… Even when you’re on long, highly-productive conference calls (ha!)… …Take one communication action per day, and insist that your staff and colleagues each do the same. In 15 minutes or less (but often in 90 seconds), you can tell somebody who can buy from you about how they’d improve if they do so. Send an email. Write a hand-written note. At a trade show, tell a prospect about a customer like them. If…

    I was meeting with a new client last week to introduce our project to the top leadership team. In the room were about a dozen people: presidents, along with a number of heads of sales and customer service departments (my work focuses on changing the thinking and behavior of customer-facing staff). As a part of his opening remarks, my client, a co-owner of the company, said “more than anything, this work is positive.” Indeed, almost all of us lose sight of the enormous positive impact of our work. We improve lives and companies, but we spend our days responding to customer…
  • Boldness

    Alex Goldfayn
    10 Nov 2014 | 1:40 pm
    Most people spend their work days putting out fires, which, by definition, is reactive effort. It also tends to be the work of dealing with unhappy customers — who are complaining about an incorrect order, a delayed delivery, or simply demanding to have your product or service yesterday. When we spend our days, and years, this way, we begin to believe all of our customers are unhappy. This could not be farther from the truth. Think about your customers: most them have been with you for years. Decades maybe. They stay with you, because they are happy with you. If I were to ask your…

    In the last week, I’ve delivered six workshops and keynote speeches in Denver, Houston, Chicago, and Las Vegas. During the portion of my sessions that covered communicating (not just collecting) testimonials, several people had this rather common resistance: “I’m not going to share my customers’ names so that my competition can steal them.” One guy who runs an eight-figure distributorship actually said to me, “You need to understand that our industry is different.” Listen to me carefully: No, it’s not. Your industry and your business —…

    You deserve more revenue. You provide tremendous value to your customers. You improve their lives and grow their companies. Ask them, and they’ll tell you. As such, you deserve more revenue. But many others deserve for your company to grow as well: Your existing customers deserve to do business with a thriving, successful firm. Your staff and colleagues, who you’re with on the front lines every day, deserve to work for a flourishing, growing company. Your family certainly deserves that your company sells more, so that all of you can live better. Your prospects deserve to benefit…

    While it’s been ten years since Lizzie McGuire went off the air, the show is still one of the most memorable Disney Channel shows. Lizzie McGuire pretty much catapulted Hilary Duff to stardom, and she became one of the most beloved personalities in the network’s roster. Duff recently talked to Buzzfeed and she speculated on what Lizzie would be doing now, ten years down the line. “I don’t think she’d be married to Gordo (Adam Lamberg).

    While smartphones have come leaps and bounds in terms of technology at the heart of them and actually left behind a lot of desktops or laptops, one aspect has not really seen the rapid advancements that we have come to expect. Yes, we are alluding to the poor battery life of smartphones today. Other than a few exceptions, such as the iPhone 6 Plus or the Motorola Droid Maxx in the years gone by, most of the devices have been classified to have a decent battery backup if they can last 24 hours. While that may not be enough of a backup, it is the recharging that takes up to anywhere between two…

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

Even if you manage to save some of those DVDs on to your hard drive (which will not be an easy task, given that most of the movies come in copy-protected DVDs now-a-days), playing them on your iOS devices via iTunes may not be as easy because of the number of tracks, sub-title files and folder structure of the DVD.

Well, Baseline Magazine thought the use case was so cool that they’ve written a great case study about it! “SLB allows the observatory to transmit data over a local network that includes fiber-optic cable, repeaters on the sea floor, computer modules that handle some processing under…

    For about two years Apple’s iPad has reigned as a digital learning device in schools and colleges of the United States. High tech giant Google makes its Cloud based technology available for affordable laptops and now a Chromebook is a better education device than an iPad. Between July and September, 2014, Chromebook has become the best-selling educational gadget among senior high (K-12) schools and institutions of higher learning. In this phase, 1.13 million Chromebooks for tablets, laptops and desktops were sold as opposed to 793,000 iPads. According to an assessment of Center for Digital…

    Any physical survey on or underneath the Antarctic sea is extremely difficult because of harsh climatic conditions. The remote polar region has environmental implication for the entire planet and that is why it is important to explore the Antarctic sea. There have been ongoing process of obtaining environmental data of the Arctic region through satellite images but those are often blurred by seasonal snow. Moreover, ice under the ocean is very difficult to measure as there is problem of accessibility. The good news is that now underwater robots are digging deeper into the Antarctic sea…

The tech giant has taken pragmatic steps well in advance to increase efficiency in its warehouses that will ensure timely deliveries and hence, customer satisfaction.

However, it has slipped a little behind as its North American and European competitors have made remarkable progress in robotics as well. Japan, nevertheless, is eager to regain its prestigious top position in the sector as it is evident by the government’s recent large scale investment in robot manufacturing industries. The focus is mainly on multiplying the production of AI (Artificially Intelligent) robots or humanoid robots. Japan plans to use AI robots for enhanced…

    By Gadjo Cardenas Sevilla One of the most confounding products to come out of Google’s Nexus program, the Nexus 6 leapfrogs the Nexus 5 in terms of size, weight and pricing, while serving as the second official vessel of Google’s next generation Android Lollipop OS.  There was a time when purchasing a Nexus device meant getting the very latest software and hardware on an affordable yet high-spec device. Buying into the Google Nexus ecosystem was like purchasing the future months before it happened and I, like thousands of other phone enthusiasts, often bought first and…

On Xiaomi phones such as Mi 3, Mi 4, Redmi 1S, and Redmi Note; the boot animation is represented by a simple Mi logo in white.

    Frédéric Filloux
    24 Nov 2014 | 1:47 am
      by Frédéric Filloux From valuations to management cultures, the gap between legacy media companies and digital natives ones seems to widen. The chart below maps the issues and shows where efforts should focus.  At conferences and workshops in Estonia, Spain or in the US, most discussions I recently had ended up zeroing on the cultural divide between legacy media and internet natives. About fifteen years into the digital wave, tectonic plates seems to drift more apart that ever. On one side, most media brands — the surviving ones — are still struggling with an endless…

      by Jean-Louis Gassée Every generation has its high tech storytellers, pundits who ‘understand’ why products and companies succeed and why they fail. And each next generation tosses out the stories of their elders. Perhaps it’s time to dispense with “Disruption”. “I’m never wrong.” Thus spake an East Coast academic, who, in the mid- to late-eighties, parlayed his position into a consulting money pump. He advised — terrorized, actually — big company CEOs with vivid descriptions of their impending failure, and then offered them salvation if they followed his advice.

MCX, a competing solution that faces more challenges than Apple Pay, helps shed light on the problem. Apple Pay was announced on September 9th with the new iPhone 6, and rolled out on October 20th.

In this first of a two-part Monday Note, I offer a look at the obstacles and developments that preceded the Apple Pay launch. When I landed in Cupertino in 1985, I was shocked, shocked to find that so much gambling was going on in here. But it wasn’t the Rick’s Café Américain kind of gambling, it was the just-as-chancy use of plastic: Colleagues would heedlessly offer their credit card numbers to merchants over the phone; serious, disciplined executives would hand their AmEx…

  • Report: Sony Ditches Steve Jobs Movie

    22 Nov 2014 | 3:16 pm
    It seems like there's some major change regarding the Sony-backed Steve Jobs bio-pic every week. If it's not someone dropping out of playing the late, iconic Apple co-founder, then it's rumors about who could be Jobs incarnate (or Woz). In this case, however, the news is that Sony Pictures is dropping the movie entirely. Oops. […]
  • Apple Swaps ‘Free’ for ‘Get’ in App Store

    20 Nov 2014 | 3:22 pm
    Apple is falling in line with the European Commission's request that app sellers do more to stop inadvertent in-app purchases. Following Google's lead, Cupertino has removed all instances of the word "free" within its iOS and Mac app stores (with the exception of its own apps, like iMovie), and replaced them with the term "Get."

    It is my pleasure to announce that the 5.1 version of Shopping, our Enterprise AppStore, is now available. The Shopping 5.0 version was a game-changer in the way it provided a consumer grade experience to users when they try to obtain desktop Apps, web Apps, virtualized Apps, file share privileges, AD group membership requests,  hardware requests, and other IT service requests. This is something a typical consumer of IT service requests never had before. Shopping 5.1 takes an evolutionary approach in taking the game forward and provides a host of technological and usability upgrades to the…

  • Short and sweet images

    25 Nov 2014 | 10:27 am
    If you are anything like me then you are regularly taking screenshots to share online. There are many different ways to do this but they all have their limitations. I don't like limits and I do like speed and to be in control of my own data. In my last post I explained that I have purchased a funky domain name and set it up with YOURLS so that I can create and manage my own short url service. My next task was to find a way to use this domain to quickly and easily share my screenshots. The requirements were quite simple but actually hard to resolve: take screenshots anywhere not…
  • Short and sweet

    23 Nov 2014 | 5:25 pm
    I like short urls (shurls). I like being able to create memorable links to anything on the internet. I like being able to see statistics on who else has followed the link. There are many online services that offer this but when you are not in control of your own data you can get burned and I got burned badly when a short url service stopped working a while back and I lost all those saved urls. So I stopped creating shurls and I missed it. During the xmas holidays last year I was reviewing a list of domains that I owned to see if I really needed them all. (Lots of good ideas - not enough…

  • Which font should I use?

    14 Nov 2014 | 9:44 am
    I like fonts. I like to use different fonts. I have downloaded lots of fonts for different projects. Each time I start a new project I waste lots of time looking for the "perfect" font. The problem is that I have forgotten what all of the fonts I already have look like so finding the right font is a slow and frustrating process. On my Mac I have fontbook which catalogs all my fonts and lets me quickly see the alphabet in that font but that is just not good enough. There are two things it doesn't do which I really miss. It doesn't show me my custom text string in the selected font. (Too many…

    Just finished another ICT-related technical assistance visit with a developing country government. Even in mid-2014, I spend a large amount of time teaching basic principles of enterprise architecture, and the need for adding form and structure to ICT strategies. Service-oriented architectures (SOA) have been around for quite a long time, with some references going back to the 1980s. ITIL, COBIT, TOGAF, and other ICT standards or recommendations have been around for quite a long time as well, with training and certifications part of nearly every professional development program.

  • Do You Need to Protect Your Mac From Security Threats?

    23 Nov 2014 | 1:35 pm
    Mac users and people who have been thinking about buying a Mac will probably know that experts consider Macs more secure than PCs. There are several reasons for this, including that malware and virus writers are less likely to target Macs, because they consider the market to be smaller. In addition, Macs are Unix-based, and Unix has a number of built-in security features that help to protect your Mac. Apple also includes several security features to stop attacks on the Mac system. For example, Gatekeeper blocks software that hasn’t been digitally signed and approved by Apple. But just…

  • Cloud Security Alliance Hack-A-Thon and the Software Defined Perimeter

    David Monahan
    7 Nov 2014 | 10:00 am
    The Cloud Security Alliance (CSA) is a not-for-profit think tank of volunteers that spend their time trying to better the internet. These people are the antithesis of cybercriminals; they spend their energy trying to figure out ways to make our data safer. They create best practices for providing security assurance within cloud computing, or in this case, they determine how a cloud environment can be used to enhance and scale authentication for a service that can be cloud-based or private data center-based. Just last week, CSA announced the results of a worldwide Hackathon against an…

      In looking at the solutions available for threat protection (and detection), there are quite a few options out there. Some, like Damballa Failsafe, are network-based, vigilantly watching packets across the network and looking for indications of undesirable activities/behaviors and content.  Others are host-based, like Bit9 + Carbon Black, using an agent on the endpoint, to persistently defend the endpoint as a beachhead against undesired, malicious processes trying to execute. Each has its use cases and strong points, but together they provide a significantly broader perspective and…

    This week, Las Vegas hosted some 3500 people at the MGM Grand to mark Splunk .conf14, the annual user gathering for Splunk customers, referred to as “Splunkers”. For those of you not in the tech industry, spelunking, or the act of exploring caves, may come to mind. The theme of the conference was not cave exploration, but data exploration; however, the analogy of cave exploration actually aligns very well. “Splunkers” are diving into their data, delving deep into places that many have never explored before. Each of them finding new and cool ways to use the data that they have been…
  • Network Management: Still a ‘Must-Have’ for Enterprise IT

    Jim Frey
    7 Oct 2014 | 9:23 am
    It’s sometimes difficult to differentiate between hype and reality when it comes to topics such as cloud, ITaaS, SDN, DevOps, hybrid this and hybrid that. But there are a few certainties in the IT universe and one of them is that IT doesn’t function if all of the pieces can’t talk to one another, and that means the network needs to be rock solid. Some of that is under the control of enterprise IT teams as internal network infrastructure, but some of it isn’t, such as WAN or Internet. Because connectivity is so essential, no one questions the need for making sure the network is healthy…

    Last week, I attended a Citrix analyst relations summit program to learn about the company’s direction and strategy.  While the main-tent program was longer on vision than it was on execution details, there were some aspects of the proceedings that I found compelling. First off, there weren’t a lot of net new things being introduced, other than some roadmaps shared under NDA and a truly cool multi-station mobile work experience demo. But that’s ok.  Too often, tech companies feel compelled to forever be pushing “something new,” when in reality IT pros need vendors to stick to…

    President Obama has signed the E-Label Act into law on Wednesday, which will allow electronics manufacturers to add labels for products using software rather than having to print the labels on hardware. Essentially, with the law, phones and tablets can be made with cleaner designs as labels and stickers will no longer be needed and the information could instead be found within the phone's software. While some Lumia phones hide their serial number and IMEI numbers under the SIM tray, some still ship with identifying labels; Windows tablets and notebooks ship with even more information.

Unfortunately, when talking to marketing managers I often hear they don’t know whether their investment really paid off. Basically this means it probably didn’t or they just don’t have any idea. Fact is that many marketing managers don’t know how to value their social media investment.

You should be building something that can sell itself. It has to be so remarkable and useful that your target users will download it and still keep it on their phones. Most new apps are downloaded and quickly uninstalled. Making an app takes time. It’s a difficult process but once you know what you want, you can better plan for it. You may be thinking you are getting..

    In the past drones have been used mostly for military use in the United States, but with the cost of making them dropping in recent years it has commercial users more interested in utilizing the drones in their business. Minds have been racing with the possibilities ever since the CEO of Amazon announced the company plans to start deliveries by way of drone like “octocopters”. He has even stated that the deliveries would be completed within thirty minutes or less. Is this truly a possibility when it comes to the delivery of our packages?

    We can all acknowledge that videos are a more popular and more powerful form of communication than words. Except for the literature enthusiast, most people would rather watch the movie than read the book. And even those who would read the book would rather watch the news than read a newspaper. Plus, what we see impacts us more than what we read because it seems much more real. That being said, blogs are still very popular and words are still necessary, even if it is only to accompany the video. There is a happy medium where the reader and the watcher can be found and that is in hosting or…

    21 Jun 2014 | 1:32 pm
    It is a good idea to be in class and learn from a teacher but the downside of the current schooling system is that each teacher has to deal with too many students. On average there are 20 students in each class and this increases the chance that, by the end of the teaching session, some still don’t get the point that the teacher was trying to put across. To remediate to the problem enunciated, some students are advised to take private tutors. Up to now, nothing can beat a one-on-one form of teaching. The good news is because the world today is interconnected, you or your children do not…

    Paul Crowe

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

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

    The diary dilemma… For years, diary studies have been conducted to get a closer look into the consumer experience as well as usage of various products and services, both while in-home and on-the-go. Truth be told, the level of information obtained from diaries is invaluable as it allows for an intimate glimpse into not only why respondents rate products and services the way they do, but also how those ratings might influence purchase decisions in the future. But, admittedly, capturing diary insights can be a bit cumbersome. Respondents are typically asked to record their behaviors and…

    Branding is a lot like middle school. You want to stand out, you want to be your own person – but you only want the “right” people to notice. So you change your hair style…slightly. You maybe try a new brand of clothing, one that looks the same as the old brand. You vow to raise your hand more in class, but not enough to become the teacher’s pet. This came to mind when we were discussing the “Share a Coke” campaign (the one where they put people’s names and cutesy words like “Legend” and “BFF” and all kinds of things that grownups never say to one another on the cans…

The implications of high-speed capacity expansion are high fixed costs, which would thus result in a plunge in profit margin. It is projected that the revenue of INTERFLEX, a leading South Korean FPCB company, would tumble by 50%, and its operating margin would record a 27% loss in 2014 in contrast to no-profit-no-loss in 2013. Additionally, affected by the order shift of Apple, the company has hardly received any orders from Apple in 2014.

I recently bought this headset and why not write a review about it. To be honest, this is no high-end headset at all, but that was not what I was looking for. However, it is a good headset for the price. It is very light and easy to use. Put the Nano receiver in an available USB port and let Windows find the device. I you are looking for a high-end headset for listening to great music this is not the one. If you on the other hand are looking for a good cheap wireless…

  • TVersity Media Server – New major version released

    21 Sep 2014 | 9:53 am

  • How to change IE Spelling language in Windows 8

    31 Aug 2014 | 12:35 pm
    When I first switched from Windows 7 to Windows 8. One of the first things I noticed was that even I was running Internet Explorer 11 on both operating systems, spelling control was not working the same way in IE 11 on Windows 8/Windows 8.1. In Windows 7 I was used to right click on a misspelled word and chance the language in case I was writing in another language in my default. In Windows 8 that is not the possible. My default language is Danish, but I often write in English as well. It toke me quite some time to figure out how I could get it to work in Windows 8, because I think it is a…

  • How to Fix no Audio Issues with FaceTime Video on iPhone 6

    21 Sep 2014 | 9:16 am
    If you are making a FaceTime call on your brand new iPhone 6, and the other party is not able to hear you properly, it is quite likely that you have not taken the plastic wrap off the phone. The noise cancellation microphone between the camera and the flash is covered with the plastic wrap on a new iPhone 6. This causes the iPhone’s noise canceling algorithm to malfunction when you make a FaceTime call (or any call with the speakerphone on). In order to fix this issue, just take the plastic wrap off, or, if you don’t want to take it off until you get a case (totally understandable), use a…
  • Contract Free iPhone 6 is Factory Unlocked

    21 Sep 2014 | 8:56 am
    This year, Apple is selling a contract free iPhone 6 from day 1 of its launch in the US. This contract free iPhone comes bundled with a T mobile sim card which is creating a lot of confusion about whether the phone will be locked to the T mobile network. Apple support executives are further adding to the confusion by saying that only T mobile customer care can confirm this. And T mobile reps say that one has to get unlock codes from them to unlock the any phone on their network, however, they are not 100% sure about the iPhone 6. I bought a contract free T mobile iPhone 6 on launch day and…

    Dave Paul
    26 Nov 2014 | 10:16 pm
    Being a Jerk Can Create Buzz, but It’s Horrible for Your Brand Bryson Meunier penned an op-ed over at Search Engine Land about the power of being a jerk online. Bryson suggests that Google’s algorithm—which is supposed to favor valuable, useful content—is actually skewed to reward rude behavior. In other words, Bryson says, if you want a lot of backlinks in a hurry, just be a jerk. To be clear, Bryson isn’t suggesting this as a valid link-building strategy. Quite the opposite: he views it as a flaw inherent in Google’s method to ranking websites, one that he considers quite…

    Recently, one of our writers cycled into Saltillo, Mexico, a town known for its museums, cowboys, gorditas and pan de pulque, a sweet bread made with fermented agave cactus. He wanted to get to a restaurant he had seen earlier in the day, but in the bustling historic downtown he had no idea where to find it. He entered the restaurant’s exact name into Apple Maps and waited for it to show up. Apple referred him to a cafe in San Francisco. Later, in the town of Cedral, he tried a simpler search: “hotels in Cedral.” Despite detecting his exact location in Cedral, Mexico, Apple Maps offered…
  • So, You Want to Rank on Bing (Not Just Google)

    Dave Paul
    25 Nov 2014 | 9:14 am
    Microsoft and Yahoo both use search results provided by Bing. Together, nearly 1 in 3 U.S. searches is handled by Bing—and a new contract with Firefox  could put that number even higher. Yet “Google” and “search” remain synonyms for many of us, and most SEO guides speak only of “ranking with Google” as if that’s all that matters. Is it?   The answer is definitely no. While some SEO tactics will work well with either search engine, the results that make the top page on the two are different, often with less than half of the same domains achieving the top spots. That’s…

    Dave Paul
    24 Nov 2014 | 7:59 am
    Black Friday is the biggest shopping day of the year and conjures images of decorated store windows, packed shopping malls, and families raiding department stores for one-day specials. But Black Friday doesn’t take place only in the world of physical retail. Internet marketing both supports storefront specials and offers an alternative for those who would rather avoid the crowds. Here are five ways you can make sure your online presence fuels your holiday sales—and doesn’t leave you floundering behind your competitors.   It’s time for a social media blitz: Whether you have 5,000…
  • Yahoo Stole Google’s Firefox Contract, but Bing Is the Real Winner

    Dave Paul
    21 Nov 2014 | 12:57 pm
    How often do you type a search into that little bar on the top of your browser? For most of us, the answer is “often”—and probably at least once within the past 15 minutes. In the age of instant gratification, users are less and less likely to navigate to a search website, and more likely to use the built-in functionality of their browser. That means that a contract won by Yahoo this week is a big deal. Under the contract, Yahoo will become the default search engine for Mozilla Firefox in the U.S. starting in December. Firefox is the third-biggest web browser by market share. This would…

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.

    Someone at Microsoft made a big mistake. TechCrunch reports that people who had subscribed to the official Microsoft blog via its RSS feed had a surprise yesterday when a new post appeared titled "blank post please delete." There weren't any clues to its meaning in the body of the post itself, either, which also simply read "blank post, please delete." But it was the URL of the post that was really interesting: No post with that URL exists on the Microsoft blog, so the "blank post" was taken down as soon as it was…

    The European Parliament has passed a historic vote to break up US tech giant Google. The EU doesn't actually have the power to break up the company, but it does send a message to Google that the EU is unhappy with its business practises.  Legislators in Strasbourg voted 458 to 173 in favour of the proposal. The European Parliament has never voted to break up a company before, making this a historic decision.

Closer inspection revealed that it was an anti-virus warning that signaled the computer had been infected by a Virus (almost 2 days ago!!). As a techie, I quickly deduced 3 things from the screen. One, the computer was running Windows, and probably an outdated version of Windows. Two, the computer had been infected with Conficker–Conficker was a pretty infamous threat, back in 2008!!

We’re becoming more and more reckless, not considering the values we impart to the youth who will be left to run this world when the future comes. Is this what marketing has come to?

    Finally! Matt Damon will return as Jason Bourne in a new film to be released in 2016. Best of all, Paul Greengrass is also back as the director of the 4th installment of the franchise. With all due respect to Jeremy Renner’s effort, his Bourne Legacy simply does not cut it and it’s just right that it be continued as a spin-off instead.

I checked out Windows Movie Maker, which has the ability to overlay text on video, but the feature set was very poor and it was nearly impossible to control where the subtitles showed up, for how long, and in what kind of format. Another problem with Windows Movie Maker is that you can’t create subtitles that show up as an option in DVD players; it’s either always there or not. After doing some research, I found that the…

    In many parts of Africa, a lack of adequate infrastructure means that it's simply not practical to build a school and employ a teacher to give kids an education – but there are alternatives. The Hello Hub is a solar-powered kiosk that features two touchscreen computers loaded with educational software and an internet connection to help kids and adults learn and get online. The first Hello Hub kiosk was recently installed in Nigeria, and there are more planned for next year. ..

  • WaveNET – the floating, flexible wave energy generator

    Loz Blain
    26 Nov 2014 | 12:14 am
    Scotland's Albatern is putting a new, modular spin on renewable energy generation. WaveNET is a scalable array of floating "Squid" generator units that harvest wave energy as their buoyant arms rise and fall with the motion of the waves. Each Squid can link up to as many as three others, effectively creating a large, floating grid that's flexible in every direction. The bigger this grid gets, the more efficient it becomes at harvesting energy, and the more different wave movements it can extract energy from. Albatern's 10-year target is to have 1.25 kilometer-long floating energy farms…

  • My Closest Friends Said I’d Never Make It as a Web Designer… Then I Did This!

    John Morris
    10 Sep 2014 | 9:07 am
    In this episode of the John Morris Show, I teach you how to use Elance and ODesk to build a successful freelance web design business. This 6-part strategy is what I used to prove all my friends and family wrong when they said I’d never make it as full-time web designer. And, to be blunt… if your freelance business is based 100% on sites like Elance and ODesk.. you’re being foolish. You could be working less and making more by implementing the 6 simple steps in this video. Over time, these steps will start to seem a bit “magical” because you’ll have new…
  • How to Avoid Clients From Hell BEFORE They Ever Hire You

    John Morris
    21 Aug 2014 | 4:26 pm
    Some clients just suck. There’s really no nice way to put it. Learning how to expose and avoid them BEFORE you let them hire you will keep you from tearing your hair out (and stave off the gray hair for just a few more years). Of course, it’s fun to joke about it… but dealing with hellish clients is actually serious as… well hell! That’s because getting good at avoiding clients who just don’t fit well with your personality and how you operate will help you avoid getting seriously burnt out and overwhelmed. And, it’ll keep you loving your job which…

    Getting your first PAID web design client is the most important action you can take for your coding career… whether you plan to be a freelance web designer long-term or not. It’s THAT important because it immediately makes everything much more clear: You see if you actually like coding You figure out what your clients expect from you You understand what to charge and why And, most importantly… you gain CONFIDENCE. You get to see first-hand that people WILL pay you money to code for them and that you CAN deliver. On the flip side, NOT getting your first client leaves…
  • How to Position Yourself to Get More Freelance Jobs

    John Morris
    6 Aug 2014 | 6:28 am
    I was recently asked: “How do I fill out my profile on sites like Elance and oDesk? How do I fill them out in a way that’s honest but more impressive than leaving them blank?” Here’s the simplest way I can put this… Your unique situation can and SHOULD be positioned to highlight your advantages. For example, when I started looking to get hired for freelance IT jobs I was completely self-taught and I believed that was a disadvantage. I believed coders who had gone to school were in a better position than me and would have an easier time convincing clients to hire…

    Music, of all the media you can play on a computer, has arguably gone through the biggest transformation. From MP3s stored on a physical hard drive, to cloud storage of your own music and streaming of music from massive digital libraries, it has evolved a great deal in the space of a decade, but all stages continue to progress.While iTunes might be the most well-known music player available for Windows and Mac, it’s by no means the only one.

  • The significance of digits: just how reliable are reported numbers?

    Jonathan Borwein (Jon), Laureate Professor of Mathematics at University of Newcastle
    26 Nov 2014 | 5:52 pm
    There is such a thing as 'too precise' when it comes to numbers. So what's appropriate? Erik Olsson, CC BY-NC-SAWhen numbers of any sort are presented in mathematics, science, business, government or finance, it’s fair to say a reader assumes that the data are reasonably reliable to their last digit. But presenting data to more digits of accuracy than is appropriate from the context can be deeply misleading, conveying much more reliability than is really present in the data. If a light bulb is listed as using 40 watts, then its actual usage is certainly not 20 or 60 watts, but…

AnnieAnniePancake/Flickr, CC BY-NDCommunications Minister Malcolm Turnbull reiterated the importance of the National Broadband Network (NBN) for regional and rural Australia in an address to the NBN Rebooted conference in Sydney last week: It is pretty obvious that the NBN has its biggest impact with customers whose broadband was previously either non-existent or very inadequate and that includes most people covered by the fixed wireless footprint.

EPA/Tannen MauryThe announcement Monday evening in the US that there would be no charges against a policeman over the shooting of a teenager is puzzling and already the target of critique. It’s not just the decision itself that’s being questioned, but the timing of the announcement. Why in the evening, at 9pm local time? And did the darkness play any role in the rioting in Ferguson, Missouri, that followed the announcement? Racial tensions Racially-charged violent protests…
  • Bitter coffee today? Try changing the colour of your cup

    We know different coloured plates can affect how food 'tastes' ... and now we know that the same applies to coffee. Esti Alvarez/Flickr, CC BY-NC-SAIn Australia, around a billion cups of coffee a year are consumed in cafés, restaurants and other outlets. Even Britain, a nation famous for its fondness for tea, has in recent years seen a dramatic rise in its coffee consumption, with an estimated 70 million cups drunk each day. Given the economic incentive to keep consumers drinking coffee, café owners, restaurateurs, crockery designers and manufacturers will, presumably, be interested…

You might have menus, text prompts, graphics, maybe wizards to walk you through whatever you’re trying to achieve. For more low-level control, though -- micro-managing your own web space, maybe setting up a remote server -- you might still need a terminal emulator like the free-for-personal-use Xshell 5. The program supports all the standards you’re likely to need. It’s an SSH, SFTP, TELNET, RLOGIN and SERIAL terminal emulator; SSH1/SSH2, password, MIT Kerberos and DSA/RSA…

To help lead you to consume, you need to be subjected to advertising -- it's all part of the money-go-round of using the web. Tailored ads are more likely to bring in cash, and social networks are in the business of gathering information about their users with a view to delivering the most laser-focused targeted advertising possible.

  • MacBook Pro to Feature Touch ID, Says Source

    26 Nov 2014 | 9:31 pm
    Pretty much every company that makes notebook computers will produce models based on Intel’s Core M chips. However, whether it’s a newly rumored MacBook Pro or the long-whispered 12-inch MacBook Air, Apple’s Intel Core M notebooks won’t be like the others — think different, think Touch ID.For notebook makers large and small, the attraction of Intel’s Core M chips is that they consume only 4.5 watts.

    Today, I am releasing CryptoNark version 0.5.6, which contains three notable changes/improvements: OpenSSL version detection has been updated up to the latest versions released on October 15, 2014. Due to the POODLE vulnerability, colorization of all SSL3 ciphers are now red regardless of cipher strength, which is an attempt to encourage people to start disabling sslv3 support on their ssl servers/websites. Added some preliminary SHA-2 certificate detection. If cnark sees that the SSL certificate on the site uses an SHA-2 signature algorithm, it will highlight that in green. If it doesn't see…

    Allow me to oversimplify. I am an iPhone user since 2009. Back then, when Apple wasn’t a watch company, the App Store was a fairly easy place to traverse. It may not had curated lists and bundles by Apple, in-app purchases, and Health Kit integraded apps, but its amount of available apps to download was miniscule compared to today (150,000 v 1.2 million.) Fast forward to 2014, newcomers in the the iOS world (many friends of mine included) are overwhelmed by the App Store’s vastness and its inadequacy to expose the great apps.1 So without further ado, here is the list that you can…

The general concept is that a Bash alias doesn’t accept parameters itself but it can call a function which does. g++ compiler alias I build my C++ source files with g++ -Wall -O3 foo.cpp -o foo.

This is a huge and remarkable breakthrough in the AI front. The Turing Test is a test of a machine’s ability to exhibit intelligent behaviour equivalent to, or indistinguishable from, that of a human. It is, essentially, a conversation between three parties—Player A (human,) Player B (machine,) and Player C (human)—which are separated from one another. If the judge (Player A) cannot reliably tell the machine…

    Day 3 for me started with an early breakfast. Serving breakfast to 13K+ people is a logistical feat made even more impressive when you see the scale of the dining facility. The hall is a gigantic warehouse-sized space on the lower floor of the Venetian whose far sides are hard to see from each edge. I somehow managed to be the first person at breakfast, due in large part to my East Coast body clock and an usher making a mistake in admitting me early. After walking for 10 minutes down aisles of wait staff directing me to a table like ramp service agents directing a plane, I managed to find a…

The Apple versus Amazon debate goes like this: Apple has shown an uncanny sense for creating new products. They are known for telling their consumers what they want, and delivering it fully functional with high profile launches. Think iPod, iTunes, iPhone and iPad. Amazon is known for delivering incrementally based on customer feedback,…

Unfortunately I didn't take the time to read up on what people were seeing before clicking on the Install button. If I had, I would have run this command and realized I would need 40 hours for this upgrade to complete (my upgrade restored ~5 files per second): $ find /usr/local | wc -l 772764…

    I was perusing the news headlines this evening and I noticed this article about Glenn Beck’s health troubles. A few sentences early on in the article floored me, because it describes how I feel exactly: “Doctors tell me that up until recently, I hadn’t had a real REM sleep in maybe as long as a decade,” Beck said. “I didn’t have a dream that I remember, except one in a decade. And quite honestly, this isn’t a symptom you look to fix if you have a ton to do. But the first sign of trouble I noticed was what I call a ‘time collapse.’ If we had met before, I couldn’t tell…

    I hate expense reports. I do them once a year and I still hate it. Back when I had to do them monthly or have the finance department all over me I hated them twelve times as much. Abacus fixes all that. The company was founded by Omar Qari, Ted Power and Josh Halickman (Foursquare, Google, Etsy Venmo and other experience) and they launched earlier this year at Winter Y Combinator. You can read their launch post here. How does Abacus fix expense reports? When a company starts using Abacus, they link their bank account.

I also have blogging on the mind in general after reading Jason Kincaid’s new book today. Here’s my short answer – A great tech blogger needs to be exceptionally good at (1) breaking big stories, (2) writing powerful thought pieces, and (3) doing live interviews. In my mind, there are just three or four great tech bloggers in the world. The average tech blogger, which is just a commodity, probably isn’t good at any of these…

    27 Nov 2014 | 4:13 am
    A single blog post sparked a strange, worrying headline this week: “Uber’s app is literally malware,” proclaimed a thread on Hacker News. Despite the blog post itself being oddly inflammatory, a number of media outlets have picked up the story’s claims that Uber may send unnecessary amounts of data back from your phone, like your private SMS’ and images stored on your phone. Let’s nip this one in the bud: it’s incredibly unlikely that Uber’s app is any kind of malware, and fr

  • Internet companies should not be monitoring terrorists or anyone else

    26 Nov 2014 | 4:05 am
    It is a gross violation of privacy for communications companies to monitor their users despite what the intelligence services may claim. The recent parliamentary inquiry about the death of Fusilier Lee Rigby of the streets of Woolwich in 2013 attempts to shift the blame for the lack of intelligence about the two murderers onto internet and communications companies, but that should never be a role for private companies. After Rigby’s murder, an internet communications company, rumoured to be Facebook, passed details of a conversation one of the murderers had recently had with a foreign…

    Simon Jones

    Recently, a New York Times article discussed the tendency for tech-startups to forgo the use of Non-Disclosure Agreements (NDAs) as legal protection. The article, Why more start-ups are sharing ideas without legal protection, written by Eileen Zimmerman, explains that the original intent of NDA agreements was to help avert fraud and the theft of ideas. However, Zimmerman sites examples of situations where both the developer and tech startups can benefit by avoiding the use of such legal protection. Disadvantages – NDAs According to entrepreneur, David Katz, Entrepreneur, there isn’t a…

  • Apple to force Beats onto all iPhone and iPad users, FT reports says

    20 Nov 2014 | 7:34 am
    It appears Apple didn’t learn its lesson from forcing unwanted “gifts” on consumers, and is preparing to push its recently acquired Beats Music music streaming service onto all iPhone and iPad users next year, an FT report claims. Beats Music is Spotify competitor created by music impresarios Dr Dre and Jimmy Lovine as a spin-off from their over-hyped headphone business. The whole company was bought by Apple earlier this year for an impressive $3 billion, and it looks like forcing it on iOS users is how Apple hopes to make back some of that money.
