    9 Jul 2014 | 8:50 am
    I can hear some of you scoffing now: “Yeah, right, because the world needed yet another Doritos product.” But as people in the business of innovation, we have to admit that the Doritos team does a great job of continually filling their innovation pipeline, leading to plenty successful new (and novel!) product launches. They’ve got to be doing something right, as according to Mintel they’re the leading tortilla chip brand in the US.PepsiCo has done it yet again. And by “it”, I mean stretching the Doritos brand well past chips – this time landing under a heating lamp at 7-Eleven.

    The Silent Power PC is claimed to be the first high-end PC able to ditch noisy electric fans in favor of fully passive cooling. In place of a conventional fan, the unit uses an open-air metal foam heatsink that boasts an enormous surface area thanks to the open-weave filaments of copper of which it is composed. The Silent Power creators claim that the circulation of air through the foam is so efficient in dissipating heat that the exterior surface temperature never rises above 50° C (122° F) in normal use...

    Buick owners enjoying their car’s built-in LTE in a photo provided by GM Last week, General Motors invited me to a press event at which it showed off some new Buicks. 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,…

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.

So in a way, it’s appropriate that the proprietary software which the studio used to animate it, Emo, had a lot of history behind it.

    The growing use of smartphones in more and more activities has led me to realize that, in essence, they’ve become the primary tool through which we run our lives: a personal remote control. Like a remote control, they’re (generally) convenient to use, always nearby, and offer instant gratification—or at least, instant access to choice. Smartphones are, of course, pocketable computers, but they’re capability is extending into so much more. They’re pocket maps, communications consoles, portable entertainment centers, infinite reference guides, wireless televisions, miniature game…
  • Thoughts On iPhone Inc

    Brian S Hall
    28 Jul 2014 | 12:11 am
    The iPhone is bigger than McDonald’s. That seems a useful demarcation for how we should view the iPhone in particular and Apple in general. The iPhone is that once-in-a-generation product that alters daily reality for at least a century. The Model T production line, overnight shipping, indoor plumbing and the credit card are other such examples. I fully expect the iPhone will enable Apple to become the world’s first trillion dollar company. There is a cost however, at least for we users. Almost certainly, iPhone will diminish Apple’s ability to create new game changing…
  • Microsoft’s Business Model Ménage à Trois

    Ben Thompson of Stratechery wrote yet another brilliant article on Microsoft entitled: “It’s Time To Split Up Microsoft“. Highly recommended reading. I agree with Thompson in part, and I disagree with him in part. Let’s start with the parts where we agree. 1.0 Balmer 1.1 Innovation Inflation The following is from Steve Ballmer’s 2004 memo “Our Path Forward:” “The key to our growth is innovation. Microsoft was built on innovation, has thrived on innovation, and its future depends on innovation. We are filing for over 2,000 patents a year for new…

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.

As my role of CMO at Zula, I am fortunate to work for a company that gets it. The company understands what too many companies still do not, that push marketing, self promotion, and spammy aggressive tactics simply do not work.

  • Parents Gain Access to Marijuana Extract to Treat Childhood Seizures

    April Sintz is fighting to loosen marijuana laws for her 7-year-old epileptic son. She is one of hundreds of moms nationwide who have opened a new front in the drive to expand the drug’s legal use. While supplying pot to a child is bound to raise eyebrows, Sintz said early evidence on the marijuana extract cannabidiol, also known as CBD, suggests it’s a potent anticonvulsant, with few dangerous side effects. That could help save the life of her son, Isaac, who has 30 seizures or so a day and suffers with kidney damage from his present treatments, she said.

The Boston Harbor Cruises whale watch vessel was freed Tuesday and docked at Boston's Long Wharf shortly after 8 a.m., some 17 hours after the voyage began. No injuries were reported for any of the 157 passengers or six crew members, but a number of people suffered seasickness during the long wait, according to passengers.

  • UK Government Report Recommends Ending Online Anonymity

    Every so often, people who don't really understand the importance of anonymity or how it enables free speech (especially among marginalized people), think they have a brilliant idea: "just end real anonymity online." They don't seem to understand just how shortsighted such an idea is. It's one that stems from the privilege of being in power. And who knows that particular privilege better than members of the House of Lords in the UK -- a group that is more or less defined by excess privilege? The Communications Committee of the House of Lords has now issued a report concerning "social media…

    We've written about the problems of so-called super injunctions in the past (though mainly in the UK). This legal process not only keeps certain details under wraps concerning a lawsuit, but actually forbids the media from reporting on anything related to the case at all. Such a thing would be clear prior restraint and not allowed in the US, but apparently is considered legal in other parts of the world. However, Wikileaks has now revealed what appears to be a super injunction against reporting on a massive corruption case in Australia, involving the leaders of Malaysia, Indonesia and…

So now Amazon has tried to be even more explicit, by taking the time to explain what price elasticity means, and how Amazon's plan would actually make authors more money.

City officials who conduct public business on personal email accounts must turn their personal emails over in response to a Freedom of Information Act request, according to a recent, first-of-its-kind ruling in D.C.

  • This is what Comcast instructed employees to do following viral-call-gate

    30 Jul 2014 | 10:25 am
    Comcast’s customer care service is a mess, as many affected customers and even former and current employees will attest, no matter what the company says in public. It all became even clearer following that customer call that was recorded by a certain tech personality, and which quickly went viral, as it revealed that Comcast is desperately trying to put a stop to service cancellations. The company took immediate action by apologizing for the incident and explaining its customer care policies publicly. Internally, the company served its employees a new memo supposed to be a reminder…
  • Twitter's surge revives valuation debate

    30 Jul 2014 | 10:01 am
    (Reuters) - The surge in Twitter Inc's shares has revived debate about whether the stock warrants a valuation that is five times that of Facebook Inc , its biggest rival in social media. Twitter reported on Tuesday that its active users jumped 24 percent to 271 million in the second quarter. If Facebook was trading at Twitter's valuation, it would be worth nearly $1 trillion.
  • Samsung to unveil the metal smartphone we’ve been waiting for on August 4th

    30 Jul 2014 | 10:00 am
    Samsung’s first metal smartphone is reportedly releasing in less than a week, but don’t get too excited — it’s not going to be as great as you hoped. SamMobile reports that the upcoming Galaxy Alpha is going to be unveiled on August 4th, or roughly a month before Samsung takes the wraps off its highly anticipated Galaxy Note 4. But wait, why wouldn’t Samsung just unveil both at the same time? Largely because the Galaxy Alpha won’t be all that much to write home about compared to the Note 4. SamMobile says that from a hardware perspective, the Alpha will basically be a watered down…

The program is open to a limited number of BlackBerry device owners who are registered in the free BlackBerry Beta Zone, which currently has more than 400,000 registered members. BlackBerry’s full email to Beta Zone members, which was published earlier this week by CrackBerry, follows below. We’re excited to announce that in the near future we will be…

    It was just yesterday when we talked about Meizu rolling out their upcoming Meizu MX4 smartphone this coming September, and here we are with additional details on the Ubuntu-powered device. In fact, while the Meizu MX4 might not be the slimmest smartphone in the market when it arrives, this does not mean it is not a looker. No sir, far from it. In fact, what you see above happens to be a leaked image of the purported Meizu MX4’s bezel, which is extremely thin as far as the naked eye is able to see. Behind the chassis lies the schematics that will see action during the manufacturing process.

This is certainly a bold move by the Taiwanese smartphone manufacturer, and the latest press invites that they have sent out point to an event in New York this coming August 19.

    When it comes to the world’s thinnest smartphone, you can be sure that this is one particular mantle that the likes of Samsung and Apple do not duke it out for. After all, they prefer to pack their respective devices with plenty of features, and surely that comes with a sacrifice – the size. Gionee, however, thinks differently, having already released the Elife S5.5 earlier this year to be the thinnest smartphone in the world. Having said that, the Gionee GN9005 intends to continue from there, measuring just 5mm thin, and is clearly making it on track to be the new thinnest smartphone…

    Richard Adhikari
    30 Jul 2014 | 7:10 am
    An Android vulnerability that exists in every version from v2.1 Eclair to v. 4.3 Jelly Bean could expose millions of users, Bluebox Security has warned. The flaw lets attackers fake the certificates of specially privileged parties, such as Adobe and Google Wallet, and serve them up with malware that bypasses detection by Android. Attackers then can take over every application running on an Android device. The flaw, which BlueBox calls -- what else? -- "Fake ID," also might impact Android forks, including Amazon's Fire OS.
  • OkCupid's Confessed Hijinks Get Thumbs-Down

    OkCupid has admitted carrying out psychological experiments on its users. Because OkCupid doesn't really know what it's doing, it needs to experiment to see what works and what doesn't, cofounder Christian Rudder wrote in a blog post. Every Internet company needs to test different things with users, and website visitors are subjected to "hundreds of experiments at any given time, on every site. That's how websites work," he argued. "When this story came out, I almost thought 'it's a publicity stunt,'" said Quinnipiac professor Sang Nam.

It emerged with a new look designed to attract users who might be dissatisfied with other social media offerings. Bubblews is attempting to build a self-sustaining ecosystem in which users who create engaging posts are paid for their work. It prides itself on being different from Facebook and Twitter, both of which compensate only their relatively small groups of company employees.

    A new way to extend battery life would allow smartphones to last three to four times longer on a single charge, Stanford University researchers have found. A team led by Yi Cui, professor of materials science and engineering, has developed pure metal anode prototypes, which differ from the lithium-ion batteries seen in most devices. The team's anode is close to a commercially viable product, but we are still some time away from seeing these battery designs in our smartphones, Cui said.

    If the Linux world has anything akin to royalty, Linus Torvalds surely must be its monarch. So what could be more natural than for the Linux-loving masses to want to see where he works and lives? Fortunately for FOSS fans, none other than the Linux Foundation has stepped up with an answer to that desire in the form of a video showcasing Torvalds' home office. Think it's tidy? Think again. You'll laugh, you'll cry. At the very least, you'll come away feeling better about the state of your own work setup.

(I guess you could speak softly, but I like my inanimate objects obedient, thank you very much.) Their basic model allows you to screw in any bulb, attach that to your light fixture, and turn it on with the words ‘Go Vocca light’. It can also still be switched on and off as usual, if someone in your house is a stick-in-the-mud. The advanced model is voice-activated as well…

Scientists from the Russell Berrie Nanotechnology Institute, the Max Planck Institute for Intelligent Systems, and the Institute for Physical Chemistry at the University of Stuttgart have designed a propeller just 400 nanometres long, with a diameter of 70 nanometres (100 times smaller than one of our blood cells).

A new study by the University of Wollongong is planning to change all that, by using three-dimensional imaging to measure breast size and shape, collecting data that could alter the way that bras are designed in future.

    For the longest time, Shoreditch – the part of London just north of the City financial district – was run down and underdeveloped. It was perhaps one of the few places in central London that normal, working class people, might live. But then in the 1990s and continuing through the first decade of this millennium the population changed considerably: the hipsters arrived. Shoreditch quickly became a by-word for the achingly trendy: handlebar moustaches, weird ‘art’ projects, high-concept bars and internet start-ups with weird names. In 2005 it was captured perfectly in…

Since then, developers Bungie has revealed that a staggering 4,638,937 – that’s just over 4.6 million players took part in the window between July 17th and last Sunday. This makes it the largest ever console beta for a new title – and is surely an indication that the game, when it is released properly on September 9th – will be a hit. What’s more, the beta was only accessible to PS3 and PS4 players – so Xbox…

    This week, we have seen some news items about Microsoft and its OS strategy. Based on CEO Satya Nadella’s remarks in the post-earnings conference call, many were led to believe that Microsoft is going to create a single version of Windows. That is of course not true, and what’s happening is also not new information. What is in fact happening is that from an engineering perspective, Microsoft is hard at work to make a single “core” of the OS which will then power devices of various types: phones, phablets, tablets, laptops, PCs, Xbox, and even “things” in…

    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…
  • CNT-based NRAM may enable a universal memory

    14 Jun 2014 | 11:37 am
    Nantero has been developing NRAM (carbon nanotube based memory) for a long time, and now they collaborated with researchers from Chuo University to show how this memory features high-speed, low-power-consumption and high-reliability operation.An NRAM memory cell is made from a thin CNT film sandwiched between two metal electrodes. When voltage is applied, the CNTs come closer to each other (due to electrostatic force and intermolecular force) and the resistivity is lowered. When the voltage drops to zero, the CNTs do not separate as they are tightly attached. This creates a non-volatile…
  • Toshiba developed STT-MRAM based microprocessor cache memory

    mram
    12 Jun 2014 | 5:45 am
    Toshiba developed new STT-MRAM technology that can be used to enable MRAM based cache memory for microprocessors. The L2 cache alone uses about 80% of the power consumed by the CPU, so reducing the power consumption of the cache is very important - and STT-MRAM may reduce this consumption by about 60%. It's not clear how close is this technology to actually being commercialized.Toshiba's new STT-MRAM uses a dual-cell (2T-2MTJ) circuit in which the two MTJs have complementary resistive states (high and low resistive states). This eliminates the leak path and also increases the readout signal…

    30 Jul 2014 | 8:47 am
    A startup faces a lot of challenges in its’ life-cycle, but there are few that stick out. The first question has to do with explosive growth—how do you start it? A lot of startups often die looking for that growth.

Reddit draws just over a hundred million unique visitors every month. With just under 8,000 active communities embedded within the site as subreddits, it powers the global “community of…
  • For Brands, Social Media is No Longer Free – but It's Worth the Investment

    30 Jul 2014 | 8:38 am
    Most businesses consider social media free. But if they want future success, their line of thinking is going to have to change. "Businesses can no longer expect to see significant gains from organic efforts and paid advertising must become more than a secondary marketing initiative," writes digital marketing expert Jeff Quipp for the Financial Post. He believes that moving forward companies must create paid strategies, reallocate marketing budgets, and take a second look at social media goals and the tactics being used to achieve them. One thing remains the same, according to Quipp, however:…
  • So You Want To Be A Growth Hacker?

    29 Jul 2014 | 5:05 pm
    My first encounter with the term “growth hacker” was in my second year of business school. I was looking to land a summer internship in marketing and came across Sean Ellis’ post on hiring a marketer to lead the growth charge—incidentally, the post where the term was first coined. Given my lack of technical expertise, I hadn’t ever considered the possibility of joining a startup. It wasn’t until I read Sean’s post that I began to think about it as a career path. Almost two years later, I’m now officially the owner of a Bachelor of Commerce…

    For advertisers who make use of YouTube’s TrueView service, watch time is both a vital and rare resource. The latest company gaming the pre-roll system in search of viewer engagement is Nail Communications, an ad agency that has seen strong returns with a deceptive pre-roll ad. Research suggests that viewers are more likely to remember  an ad if they view it to completion, so advertisers have figured out a number of anti-skipping strategies. Some pre-roll ads front-load content into the first five seconds in order to reel in viewers before they have the option to skip. Other…

Funny thing about water: sometimes, it’s cold. If you’re an old school dunker, you might be saying, “I’ll tell you about cold water, boy. I was baptized in a cow pond.” Or maybe I’m wrong. Maybe it was a “swimming hole.” Either way, from what I hear, old people were often baptized in disgusting pond water, which…

That said, I wasn't expecting to fall victim to Kim Kardashian: Hollywood. Suffice it to say, the rumors you've heard are true: just like Hollywood, this game will suck you in. And if you don't have the power to stop, it will eat you alive. The following is a true account of my experience playing the Kim Kardashian video game.

    Check out this review of the NZXT H440 mid-tower case at ThinkComputers this afternoon. For comparison purposes, you can see our evaluation here. Its extremely sleek design is made possibly by completely removing optical drive bay cases from the case, which make way for an all-new storage system. Inside we see new things like a steel power supply cover that has a NZXT logo on it and even two solid state drive mountings that can be seen through the large side panel window. NZXT really thought out every aspect of this case. Will it impress? Comments

    30 Jul 2014 | 8:07 am
    At least one school district feels that giving laptops to students is a terrible idea, and these are the reasons why. By the time Jerry Crocamo, a computer network engineer, arrived in Hoboken's school system in 2011, every seventh, eighth and ninth grader had a laptop. Each year a new crop of seventh graders were outfitted. Crocamo's small tech staff was quickly overwhelmed with repairs. We had "half a dozen kids in a day, on a regular basis, bringing laptops down, going 'my books fell on top of it, somebody sat on it, I dropped it,' " said Crocamo. Comments

  • City Of London Police Inserting 'This Website Has Been Reported To Police' Banner Ads On Websites With No Legal Review

    Mike Masnick
    30 Jul 2014 | 11:04 am
    The City of London police have continued to take their bull-in-a-china-shop approach to "stopping piracy" (generally based on a near total misunderstanding of the internet) to it's next level of ridiculousness. The police (which, yes, no need to remind us, represent a square mile in the middle of wider London, though, yes, it covers many big London businesses and financial firms) appear to have bought into Hollywood's fable about "piracy" being the equivalent of "theft" and not being even remotely concerned about the possibility of collateral damage. Back in April, we noted that the City of…
  • UK Government Report Recommends Ending Online Anonymity

    Mike Masnick
    30 Jul 2014 | 10:08 am
    Every so often, people who don't really understand the importance of anonymity or how it enables free speech (especially among marginalized people), think they have a brilliant idea: "just end real anonymity online." They don't seem to understand just how shortsighted such an idea is. It's one that stems from the privilege of being in power. And who knows that particular privilege better than members of the House of Lords in the UK -- a group that is more or less defined by excess privilege? The Communications Committee of the House of Lords has now issued a report concerning "social media…
  • Wikileaks Reveals Super Injunuction Blocking Reporting On Massive Australian Corruption Case Involving Leaders Of Malaysia, Indonesia & Vietnam

    Mike Masnick
    30 Jul 2014 | 9:03 am
    We've written about the problems of so-called super injunctions in the past (though mainly in the UK). This legal process not only keeps certain details under wraps concerning a lawsuit, but actually forbids the media from reporting on anything related to the case at all. Such a thing would be clear prior restraint and not allowed in the US, but apparently is considered legal in other parts of the world. However, Wikileaks has now revealed what appears to be a super injunction against reporting on a massive corruption case in Australia, involving the leaders of Malaysia, Indonesia and…

    The Keith Alexander story just keeps getting more and more bizarre. Almost immediately after retiring from the top position at the NSA, where he oversaw the total failure of the NSA's supposed "100% auditing" system, allowing Ed Snowden (and who knows how many others) to escape with all sorts of documents, Alexander announced that he had set up a cybersecurity firm -- with the ridiculously Hollywood-ish name of IronNet Cybersecurity. A month ago, it was revealed that he's going around asking banks to pay him $1 million per month for his "expertise." That caused a few to wonder if he's selling…
  • Amazon To Hachette And Authors: Here, Let Us Explain Basic Price Elasticity To You

    Apparently Amazon's efforts earlier this month to make it abundantly clear that it's fight with Hachette is about helping, not harming authors still didn't quite make it through to authors who seem to reflexively hate Amazon (often for reasons that don't make much sense). So now Amazon has tried to be even more explicit, by taking the time to explain what price elasticity means, and how Amazon's plan would actually make authors more money. They lay it out pretty clearly, especially for those authors who maybe didn't do so well in economics classes: A key objective is lower e-book prices. Many…

    Don’t be fooled by how cute this cubular shaped car is, because when it comes to driving, the Soul packs a punch and really performs. To that effect, the 2014 Kia Soul has upped the ante by using better quality materials, increasing the shock absorption, and increasing the rigidity by 28.7%. Kia has also redesigned the car to be a bit lower, longer, and wider, but the size is still relatively compact for all that it offers on the inside. The top model, with its 2 liter engine, has the pep of a serious sports car. As a matter of fact, the muffler is tuned to sound aggressive and powerful, so…

  • 5 Effective Ways to Monetize Freemium Apps

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

    Getting your content shared is essential for anyone engaged in online marketing of any kind. Going “viral” is the goal, but it’s harder to achieve than you might realize. 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…

  • Another day, another sensationalist, unfounded security story

    29 Jul 2014 | 11:28 am
    Dan Goodin, at Ars Technica, is writing about a security flaw in Android. It's got all the usual scary-scary language about doom and gloom, quotes from antivirus peddlers, and it wasn't long until sensationalist Apple site AppleInsider took it all one step further (relevant). So, is this a real security threat, or are we looking at sensationalism run amok? This is the issue in a nutshell. The Fake ID vulnerability stems from the failure of Android to verify the validity of cryptographic certificates that accompany each app installed on a device. The OS relies on the credentials when…

It replaces the new tab page of your Google Chrome with a real-time counter that displays your incrementing age. Every time you launch Chrome, or open a new tab in the browser, the extension works as a sobering reminder that the clock is ticking away. That may motivate you…
  • A Twitter Search Trick You Didn’t Know About

    Tweetdeck, the popular app for Twitter, offers a very useful search feature that helps you discover the more popular (viral) tweets for any search term very easily. While setting up a search column inside Tweetdeck (see screenshot), you can define an “engagement level” so that tweets that have been retweeted or favorited at least ‘n’ times only show up in the search results. The engagement filter surfaces the best tweets and removes the noise from Twitter search results but the most surprising part is that Twitter has not made this filter available outside Tweetdeck.

    30 Jul 2014 | 11:01 am
    BitTorrent has teased its chat product for months, and now some lucky testers will get the chance to see the pre-alpha in action. The serverless chat client, designed to evade surveillance and big data collection, also has a name: BitTorrent Bleep. “As far as we’re concerned, anything you say is ‘bleep’ to us,” the company said in a Tuesday blog post. First thing’s first: Bleep isn’t just another messaging app. BitTorrent is well-known for its decentralized, peer-to-peer protocol, typically used for file-sharing.

    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.

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

However, as compared to the predecessor, the G3 is extremely improved. It offers a better screen with higher resolution, faster processor and more freedom in terms of usability. Whereas, the Z2 isn’t as behind as it may sound. The camera is improved over the Z1 and now offers 4k video recording at 30 frames per second as well as slow motion videos at 120 frames per…

Tesla [NADSAQ:TSLA] has not quite decided on a location quite yet, however there is a very short list of a few states and that list continues to narrow. Obviously, many states would like Tesla to build their fab in their states, but the gigafab will have to be close enough to Tesla’s factory in Fremont that they can still get their own batteries into their cars reasonably easily. As such, I suspect that the gigafab will very likely be put somewhere in Nevada, Arizona, New Mexico or…

First you have to realize that there is no real way to transfer/translate the adjustments you made  to your images in Aperture to the Lightroom and have the images look exactly the same. So the next best thing is to bring over as much of your Aperture Library structure as possible over to Lightroom and…

    As you know, the simple method GetTab(int tabid) was obsolete and has been replaced by GetTab(ByVal TabId As Integer, ByVal PortalId As Integer, ByVal ignoreCache As Boolean). If you want to call the new method, we have to pass the additional parameter “PortalId”. In common,  the object PortalSettings can be easy to get with DNN context, such as special dnn module & page; however, it may be inaccessible in some sceneries, such as separate aspx page or handler. Then is there any way to get the correct tab info with this new method? Now there is a simple trick to do it with passing into…

    There’s conflict in Gaza, Iraq, Afghanistan, Syria, Libya, Ukraine, and elsewhere. Three passenger planes have crashed in recent weeks, one shot out of the sky with a missile. Many parts of the world are experiencing drought, and wild fires burn on the West Coast of the U.S. The “experts” are beginning to predict that the U.S. stock market has peaked, and world-wide political upheaval rules the day. The world is hot, and in some places, quite literally on fire. It’s not surprising then, that so many of my clients’ customers cite peace-of-mind as the leading value…

    Customers are trained to contact us when they need something, or when there is a problem. Nobody calls when we’re doing a great job for them, because that’s expected, and, in turn, taken for granted. So we get a significant influx of negative feedback, from a very small minority of our customers. The great majority of our customers are very happy with our work. We must seek out these positive thoughts, feelings and feedback from our customers. When we hear the wonderful ways our happy customers perceive us, we become bolder. And when we are bold, we are confident. We take more…

    This morning I’m delivering a keynote to more than 1,000 people for the AmericanHort association — the largest horticultural association in the US. It’s titled Kill The Commodity, and the organizer selected the title. Most companies in competitive spaces are perceived as commodities — a printer is a printer, right? Doors are doors, construction is construction, and distributors are distributors. The problem is that when the market views you as a commodity, all you have to compete on is price, and life is very difficult. That’s why people in commodity businesses…

    Think about your typical customers: on average, what percentage of your entire range of products and services are they aware of? I ask every audience, client and prospect this question, because it is the single lowest hanging fruit for revenue. Answers range between 5% and 50%, but almost never higher. People cannot buy what they do not know about. We think about everything we offer, because it is our job. But our customers have their own jobs. And even if we’ve told them (repeatedly!) about the other products and services they can buy from us, they are probably not aware of them. How do we…

    Just like your products and services, the best marketing helps people. It doesn’t pitch, propose, push, prod or promise. Rather, it demonstrates your outstanding value to your customers and prospects. It offers ideas, tools, techniques, approaches, and advice for improvement. If you sell products, help your market get the most out of them. If you sell services, teach people how to improve in your area of expertise. Think about your market: as a group, where are they falling short? What are they doing incorrectly that can be bettered? Right now, make a list of a half-dozen such areas.

    Kirstie Alley was hoping for a huge comeback with her TV Land sitcom, Kirstie. Now it seems as though that comeback simply wasn’t meant to be. The network has officially cancelled the show after just one season. Alley played the role of Madison Banks, a woman who gave up her son at birth twenty-six years ago. When that son (played by Eric Peterson) wants to reconnect, things change. That reconnection wreaks all sorts of havoc in her life as a Broadway star. Kirstie Alley actually had a pretty impressive cast on Kirstie that included Rhea Perlman (Cheers) and Michael Richards of Seinfeld…

The latest Windows Phone 8.1 update will bring Cortana as a Beta to China, while other countries such as India and Australia and Canada will receive it as an Alpha. The reason for this is slow development due to regional restrictions. Since Cortana uses a lot of location as well as contextual features, you can understand why Microsoft is calling this an Alpha release as there is no doubt there would be…

The recently concluded Farnborough Air show saw several marvellous aircrafts such as the Boeing 787 as well as the Airbus Neo lines of planes participate. The star of the show, without a doubt was the Boeing 787 with its maneuvers and ability to fly low altitudes while still not giving anything away in terms of the stability loss. However, another interesting event at the Farnborough Air Show was that it was the first time here that a couple of aircrafts made by students took part and actually flew. Everyone who…

Every time, post the incidents, I have landed safely, I have momentarily thanked the heavens that no mishap occurred. While the black cloud of safety looms large on air travels, the industry is bound to suffer from the incidents. But how much truth is there in all of this? Is air travel really that unsafe? Contrary to what you may think, air travel in 2014 has been safest that there has been. Yes, we have seen almost 3 fatal crashes and its barely been half an year and we have…

  • Lantronix + dweet + freeboard: Connecting a microcontroller’s serial port to the Internet of Things

    Mariano Goluboff
    27 May 2014 | 8:56 am
    Talking to my customers, everybody is asking about the Internet of Things. There is so much information about the IoT, that it can be confusing to figure out how to solve your specific business problem with all the options available. Where the rubber meets the road is putting hardware, software, and services together to get to a cogent solution. All while reducing costs and time to market, of course. So when I heard someone wanting to connect to Bug Labs’ dweet.io I was intrigued. Here’s a service that claims to make the sending of data very easy. I don’t even have to sign up for a free…
  • xPrintServer: On the Road, Online, On TV, and In Print

    17 Apr 2013 | 9:59 am
    Launching a new product is never easy, and it can even be more challenging when the product is one of a kind. It takes creativity, out of the box thinking, lots of elbow grease, a little bit of luck and persistence. Little more than a year after its launch, you’d be hard pressed to find an iPad or iPhone enthusiast who has not heard about xPrintServer. While this product line – and the market opportunity for networked mobile printing– is in many ways still in its infancy, xPrintServer is well positioned to capitalize on the need for a cost-effective and easy to deploy networked…

  • Sensors to replace dogs

    Nidhi Mathew
    30 Jul 2014 | 12:56 am
    For years security against explosives has been left up to dogs. These dogs are trained for a long period of time to be able to detect explosive materials, but the process of training them is tiresome and expensive. The good news is that dogs won’t have to do all the work anymore thanks to a sensor invented recently. This sensor is more special as it possesses the ability to detect extremely minute quantities of explosive. A test conducted to determine the device’s capabilities revealed that it can successfully detect explosives such as 2,4-dinitrotoluene or DNT, nitrobenzene and…

    In order to defeat AMD’s lineup of desktop GPUs, which gives NVIDIA stiff competition due to its affordable price, NVIDIA has decided to launch a new series of GPUs. This new series will be called GeForce GTX 800 and is expected to be released in October 2014. The Santa Clara-based company has planned to begin by releasing two graphic cards targeting the higher-tier market; those units will be followed by three mid-ranged cards that will target different market segments. The first week of October will witness the launch of GTX 870 and GTX 880, which are units meant for the higher-tier…

    Google confronted all rumors, which suggested that it will abandon its Nexus brand and replace it with a better line up of mobile devices called ‘Android Silver’, and buried them successfully. Now, it seems that after a torrent of rumors, which left several Nexus users worried, there is something to rejoice about. One of the rumors happens to be the coalition between Google and HTC; reports suggest that the two companies are discreetly working on a 9-inch Nexus tablet, which they have codenamed as Volantis. Volantis is expected to be carrying NVIDIA’s Tegra K1 chipset. Another tag team…

    I recently started a project with Susy to get away from bloated frameworks. It’s always fun for me to try something new and find out there may be a better way to accomplish a task. I started my journey by looking on the Susy website under “Documentation” for information on how to get started. I started the project with Compass since that is something I am familiar with from using other Frameworks.

    Your online store and your customer relationship management system would probably consider themselves acquaintances. They nod and say “hi” at parties, but are definitely not close friends.  It’s really too bad, they have so much in common and would have a lot to talk about.  They both know so much about your company’s customers, orders, products and shipments, but one only hears about what the other knows through hearsay (sometimes called “data entry” in the business world). This article will begin to tell a story of building bonds of friendship between…

    Microsoft is trying to give us ways to make things work, even though it’s still painful. When we moved our office from Uniontown to Pittsburgh, we left behind a handful of 5-10 year old PCs that were wasting space in our office, aside from testing our projects in Internet Explorer. We should have a Linux install party at The Beauty Shoppe and donate those machines, stripping the XP serial numbers/labels off the top (so not to fuel the never ending cycle of people not upgrading their computers)! This worked fine for us, but sooping up our Mac’s with more RAM or upgrading allowed…

    13 Jul 2014 | 9:42 am
      Satya Nadella’s latest message to the troops – and to the world – is disquieting. It lacks focus, specifics, and, if not soon sharpened, his words will worry employees, developers, customers, and even shareholders. As I puzzled over the public email Microsoft’s new CEO sent to his troops, Nicolas Boileau’s immortal dictum came to mind: Whatever is well conceived is clearly said, And the words to say it flow with ease. Clarity and ease are sorely missing from Satya Nadella’s 3,100 plodding words, which were supposed to paint a clear, motivating future for 127,000…

      By the end of 2014, many news media will collect around 50% of their page views via mobile devices. Here are trends to remember before devising a mobile strategy. (First of a two-part series.) In the news business, mobile investments are on the rise. That’s the pragmatic response to a major trend: Users shift from web to mobile. Already, all major media outlets are bracing for a momentous threshold: 50% of their viewership coming from mobile devices (smartphones and tablets). Unfortunately, the revenue stream is not likely to follow anytime soon: making users pay for mobile…
  • The Network Is the Computer: Google Tries Again

    6 Jul 2014 | 1:29 pm
      All you need is a dumb device attached to a smart network. It’s an old idea that refuses to die despite repeated failures. Now it’s Google’s turn. In the late 1980s, Sun Microsystems used a simple, potent war cry to promote its servers: The Network Is The Computer. Entrust all of your business intelligence, computing power, and storage to Sun’s networked SPARC systems and you can replace your expensive workstation with a dumb, low cost machine. PCs are doomed. Nothing of the sort happened, of course. Sun’s venture was disrupted by inexpensive servers assembled from the PC…

      Despite its dominance, Google doesn’t fit the definition of a monopoly. Still, the Search giant’s growing disconnect from society could lead to serious missteps and, over time, to a weakened position.  In last week’s column, I opined about the Open Internet Project’s anti-trust lawsuit against Google. Reactions showed divided views of the search engine’s position. Granted, Google is an extremely aggressive company, obsessed with growth, scalability, optimization — and also with its own vulnerability. But is it really a monopoly in the traditional and historical…

    Every business organisation, no matter how successful, has lost customers in the past. This could be due to any of a myriad of reasons, from a poor customer service experience that’s left the customer disenchanted, to discovering they’ve been paying more than they should have for the products and/or services they’ve purchased. However, it isn’t necessarily the experience in question that dictates whether or not there remains a possibility of winning back a disenchanted customer, but rather the actions taken to win them back. There are no set-in-stone methods that are guaranteed to…

For the better part of my career, I wrestled with one crippling fear – that one day, I would run out of ideas. Afraid that the well would run dry, and I would no longer be able to rise to the challenge of creating new stuff. Over recent years, I’ve decided to confront this fear instead of living with it. What I’ve come to realize is as liberating as the act of creating itself. This year, legendary designer Massimo Vignelli passed away…

    A new material structure developed at MIT generates steam by soaking up the sun. The structure — a layer of graphite flakes and an underlying carbon foam — is a porous, insulating material structure that floats on water. When sunlight hits the structure’s surface, it creates a hotspot in the graphite, drawing water up through the material’s pores, where it evaporates as steam. The brighter the light, the more steam is generated.read more

A homepage is the entrance to your website – a portal to the rest of your site with the goal of exploring it. It’s usually visited by those who have a direct link to your website. Most of the time the visitors already know you or have done business with you. Your homepage has navigation to other parts of your site such as blogs, products, services, resources, etc.

    Picture this… You wake up in the morning to the sound of your phone. It’s updating you on the traffic on your way to the office based on the route you took yesterday. You stumble into your bathroom and stare into the mirror at the outcome of your beauty sleep. On the side of your mirror is a reminder to buy toothpaste and shaving cream. You make your way downstairs to find your coffee has already started brewing when it sensed your bathroom light turn off. Your reach into your fridge for some half & half – the bottle is almost empty so your refrigerator updates the shopping…

    Healthcare is becoming a costly commodity in the United States. The total healthcare spending in the United States is expected to reach $4.8 trillion by the year 2021. In fact, a report in the New York Times reveals that even for relatively small or common ailments you can incur huge hospital charges. According to new data released by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, the charges for some of the common inpatient procedures (such as treatment for pneumonia or digestive problems) increased in hospitals across the US in 2012 from a year earlier, at more than four times the national…

The EHR system facilitates improved communication between healthcare providers; promotes patient safety thereby enhancing quality of care. Even though EHRs enhance patient care, many do not recognize that adverse patient safety issues stemming from this system have a long-lasting effect. A new study of health IT implementation conducted at seven Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) hospitals shows that EHRs when implemented without…

    On July 7, news hit the wire that Attachmate are allegedly suing Mobistar to the tune of $6.12m for the illegal use of their ReflectionX product. It’s not surprising when Attachmate is regarded by many as one of the more aggressive software vendors when it comes to software auditing. It isn’t solely Attachmate that is seen as aggressive: The big five (Microsoft, SAP, IBM, Symatec, Adobe) are all upping their auditing activity, and why not when there is big money to be made? As I’ve said previously (‘Software License Audits – Reputation is Everything‘), the average audit…
  • 1E Nomad and IIS Request Filtering

IIS has a built in function called IIS Request Filtering which blocks certain file extensions, folders and file names. Some examples include: <filename>.resx (file extensions) Visual C++ (double escaping) \bin folder (hidden segments) The ConfigMgr client doesn’t get blocked when downloading content from a ConfigMgr DP over HTTP or HTTPS. This is because when the ConfigMgr client downloads a blocked file extension rather that requesting the…

    Clive Thompson

    I recently picked up 1001 Video Games You Must Play Before You Die. I couldn't resist the title, which so neatly refracts the gibbering cultural anxieties of lists like "1000 novels everyone must read". You see this sort of highbrow listicle often in the realms of literary fiction, movies, possibly poetry. It's classic canon panic, and I say that with a degree of charity and warmth; I actually think arguing heatedly and even snobbishly about what works of art are important and mindbending can be a lot of fun, and occasionally useful to the parties involved. But there's something hilarious and…

It's considered one of the first big essays to tout the idea that "originals" -- writers of deep originality -- are more important and awesome than derivative folks. I heard about Conjectures while reading a different essay this evening, and since I'm sort of obsessed with tracking the rise of our modern (and disastrous) conceit that originality is something that just kind of wells up from inside you I immediately dialed up Conjectures on…

Two years ago I was trying to think of something to get for my wife for her birthday, and I was stuck. So I decided to go the “heartfelt” route and make her something by hand: The personal touch! But what would I make? Well, I’m a big nerd from way back, and she’s also something of a nerd too. So I decided that I’d make her something peculiarly digital: A personalized video game. I downloaded a…
  • Of Star Wars "crawl" poetry and the weirdness of our attention spans

    Clive Thompson
    22 Jan 2014 | 6:34 am
    Yesterday I saw a picture on Boing Boing: A "behind the scenes" shot of how they made the iconic opening "crawl" text for The Empire Strikes Back. I'd always assumed, naively, that the crawl was done with computer graphics, but no: It was a steampunk affair, with the text printed on a piece of glass and filmed at a steep angle by a camera. But what really struck me was the quote from George Lucas about the formal properties of a crawl: "The crawl is such a hard thing because you have to be careful that you're not using too many words that people don't understand," Lucas has said. "It's like a…
  • Selfies and Borges

    Clive Thompson
    18 Jan 2014 | 3:07 pm
    I was in my local branch of the Brooklyn Public Library yesterday when I found this: The Book of Imaginary Beings, by Jorge Luis Borges. It's a cryptozoological encyclopedia of animals described in myth and literature, which Borges details with typically awesome digressive riffs. There's the "Squonk", which apparently is native to Pennsylvania, is perpetually sad over its wart-encrusted appearance, and thus can be hunted by following "its tear-stained trail". There's "The Hairy Beast of La Ferté-Bernard," which somehow survived the Biblical flood despite not having been on the Ark;…

  • Stoking the Application Pipeline with PaaS: Don’t Underestimate the Power of the Platform

    Julie Craig
    29 Jul 2014 | 12:55 pm
    Dominique Vernier’s blog, “Leverage SaaS and PaaS to speed up application development,“ provides an excellent overview of IBM’s cloud-based approach to software development and delivery. IBM’s introduction of the Bluemix Platform as a Service (PaaS) to the marketplace earlier this year builds on the existing capabilities of Jazz (/jazz.net/) introduced in 2008. While Jazz addresses the requirements and design stages of the application lifecycle, Bluemix extends IBM’s cloud-based capabilities to development, testing, and production as well. The Bluemix PaaS runs on Cloud Foundry…
  • APM on Premise versus “in the Cloud”: Either, Or, or Both?

    Julie Craig
    25 Jul 2014 | 11:04 am
    The Rise of Cloud-based APM Solutions In my last blog, I called today’s enterprise application landscape “a dog’s breakfast”1 as far as complexity and heterogeneity are concerned. A growing number of APM vendors would likely agree. Regardless of whether you are on the vendor or the consumer side, application management— as opposed to simple application monitoring— is an inherently difficult task. Perhaps for this reason, enterprise-grade Application Performance Management solutions—those capable of monitoring, correlating and triaging integrated, distributed applications while…
  • Why Data Analytics as a Service?

    John Myers
    14 Jul 2014 | 8:39 am
    Waaay back in the day (say 2002), organizations would ask themselves: “If our customer and prospect (potential customer) information is our most valuable asset, why would we EVER trust it with a 3rd party who would put it with the customer information from other companies?” Today, organizations do not hesitate to start their sales endeavors with the swipe of a credit card and the creation of a Salesforce.com account. In fact, the concept of X-as-as-service has grown to have as many definitions as the concept of cloud computing itself. There are infrastructure-as-a-services (IaaS) that…

    Julie Craig

    Did you ever hear the term “a dog’s breakfast”?

(Figure 1: Which of these is your company currently delivering as a production service?) In EMA’s latest APM research, survey respondents were asked to indicate which types of applications their IT organizations were delivering as production services and to “check all that apply”. The…

    If you are an IT manager, have you ever found yourself stuck in the uncomfortable position of having to choose which jobs are given priority access to essential computing resources? Most likely you have as this is not an uncommon problem. Expecting them to invoke the Wisdom of Solomon, enterprises often bestow the power to decide the workload hierarchy on IT operations. But as most IT managers will tell you, this responsibility is typically more of a curse than a blessing. A recent blog by IBM Tiger Team member, Xavier Giannakopoulos, titled “You are promoted!

    Yesterday, we reported that the unlocked Lumia 1520.3 variant started to receive the Lumia Cyan update. That phone works on AT&T and T-Mobile with LTE and is considered a prized win for consumers willing to spend the extra money. As it turns out, many country variants (CV) of the Lumia 1520 are now getting the Lumia Cyan update with Windows Phone 8.1. Unfortunately, many carriers are still listed as 'under testing.' As usual, we have gone through and accumulated all the countries and regions that are now eligible for the Lumia Cyan update, in addition to updating our tracker page.

    At the beginning of the month, Perfect World Entertainment revealed that its popular massively multiplayer online role-playing game (MMORPG) Neverwinter would be coming to the Xbox One in China. The MMO genre is one of the most popular types of games in China; they have literally a million billion of them over there. If I am not mistaken, that's a number so high that mathematicians don't even have a word for it. Announcing a game for the Chinese market and announcing it for the rest of the world are two different things. But did anyone really think Perfect World wouldn't bring Neverwinter to…

    30 Jul 2014 | 8:37 am
    A few days ago, it was widely reported that HTC is repositioning their flagship One M8 as a new Windows Phone dubbed "One (W8) for Windows." The phone may be the same as the hot selling Android phone, but with Windows Phone 8.1 Update 1 on board and destined for Verizon. Windows Phone Central reported the phone could go on sale as early as August 21 and coincidentally enough, HTC has sent out limited press invites for August 19 right in New York City. No clues or themes were present on the invite, though the timing is suspect.

    Patryk Borowa
    17 Jul 2014 | 3:57 am
    Have you ever heard of the business model canvas? If so, then you know that it is basically a board of basic elements which need to be evaluated in the process of creating a product and the business around it. Have you ever wondered if such a model could be created for a software design process? I did and here are my thoughts on it. Obviously a detailed implementation cannot be touched by such a “bird’s eye architecture-cheat-sheet” but I think a general description with some design tips can be achieved. So without further ado I bring to you: “The 11 blocks of software…

    Either you like it or not, application development today is more like playing with building blocks than writing advanced algorithms. Probably 90% of anything you could want to achieve code-wise is already there, and the smartest ones in the room will be those who use that inventory rather than reinvent the wheel. The real adventure nowadays is to use existing pieces to create something innovating and attractive.

    It sounds obvious to spend your social budget to please valuable fans, doesn’t it? So why aren’t we doing so?

  • How to recycle your [legal] briefs safely

    Deborah Savadra
    10 Jul 2014 | 7:30 am
    In my observation, if there's one thing you lawyers love, it's repeating yourselves. No, not when you speak; it's when you write. Y'all recycle so much old material from briefs and other documents, it puts Ed Begley, Jr. to shame. Some of the problems with all that cutting and pasting are pretty obvious: another client's name being left in (oops) or funky formatting that doesn't match the new document. But others aren't. What sort of evil stuff lurks in that text you just pasted over from your last magnum opus? And how's it going to undermine your next court filing? Click the link below to…

It's specific to California, and it costs $10 (as of the time I'm hitting the Publish button), but if you have to do pleadings in this format, it's arguable worth more than $10.

Now, it seems social media may be simplifying the ecommerce channel, giving consumers the ability to make purchases directly in the ads and posts for products they see in their feeds. Both Facebook and Twitter have now begun testing “buy now” buttons to their sites and apps.

    Yo: A two letter word with ambiguous origins and typically inconsequential meaning. Or is it not that simple? One of the newest trends in social media and mobile apps has been the rise of the app named after such a seemingly innocuous term. Giving users only the ability to send the word “Yo” to each other, the app has already received $1.2 million in investment and has risen to the number one in the iOS app store. The fast rise of Yo was quickly followed by an influx of hack attempts, and when a group of college students hacked into Yo’s data and were able to attain user information,…

  • 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 pic.twitter.com/Ob6m2FmGvX — 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…

  • How Authorship Can Boost Your Google Rankings

    Dave Paul
    9 Jul 2014 | 9:07 am
    We’ve all heard the phrase “content is king.” The past several years have seen an accelerating trend where search engines reward high-quality, valuable content. That trend definitely won’t reverse anytime soon, but it is taking an interesting twist: If Google’s newest changes are any clue, it’s not the content that’s king but the content creators. And just because your site releases great content doesn’t make you a content creator. It’s the individual authors that Google is increasingly shining the spotlight on, not the companies or entities that publish their work. That…

  • Here's The Astonishing Hovercraft That The Soviets Could Have Used To Invade Western Europe In The 80s

    Robert Johnson and Armin Rosen
    30 Jul 2014 | 11:07 am
    The relationship between the U.S. and Russia is more tense than it's been since the collapse of the Soviet Union in the early 1990s. American and E.U. sanctions on the Russian government in the wake of Moscow-backed separatists' destruction of a Malaysia Airlines passenger jet has Russian President Vladimir Putin backed into a corner — which, as The New Republic's Julia Ioffe argues, is when he's most dangerous. But this isn't the Cold War. There's little actual danger of the Russians attempting to militarily threaten western Europe. Putin's options are dwindling. He's almost certainly…
  • BitTorrent Releases A New Super-Secure Chat App Called 'Bleep'

    Dylan Love
    30 Jul 2014 | 11:00 am
    Late last year, filesharing company BitTorrent teased an NSA-proof chat product in the works. Now things are a good deal more official — the product will be called "BitTorrent Bleep" and users can get started using an early build of it ("pre-alpha") on an invitation-only basis. The thing that sets Bleep apart from nearly all other chat applications is its decentralized nature. Those wanting to communicate with each other do so via a direct line of communication, without having their messages routed through a central server.  Bleep is so named because BitTorrent never sees your…

  • Keeping Guns Clean

    admin
    25 Jul 2014 | 7:21 pm
    Before taking your gun to a shooting range or in a field to hunt, you can take it to a cleaning company to make sure it is in the best condition possible. The company will clean the barrels and other parts of the gun so that it works properly when you go to shoot. Instead of cleaning by hand, most companies use machines in order to get your gun as clean as possible. There are various sizes of cleaning systems ranging from those that are used on hand held pieces to larger guns that are used in special operations by police officers or by hunters. One advantage to using cleaning machines is…

    Ideally, Lotus Notes is a suite that is composed of benefits like emailing, calendaring, database management, Web Server, programming etc. So, giving blame to the application that it is a costly email-client would be an injustice. Organizations that are using Notes® aim fully for the purpose of emailing; surely a large section of finances are going in vain. For turning losses due to mail application, the idea of migrating to MS Outlook can be adopted that is as capable as Notes® when it comes to serving sheer emailing experience.

    When was the last time we heard something new or exciting from BlackBerry? Apart from the recent appointment of Marty Beard as COO, not much else. And this quick rundown by Ingrid Lunden over at TechCrunch of where BlackBerry stands right now isn’t all sunshine and rainbows: BlackBerry’s share price dropped by more than 10% the day after Apple and IBM announced their news. The effect was not helped by the general decline that BlackBerry has seen over the last couple of years as its market share in smartphones as tumbled while Android devices and the iPhone continue to rise.

It’s like telling all the farmers to give up their rightful claims on Hacienda Luisita and adorn the Cojuancos for their benevolence.

A list of features of Windows Phone 8.1 can be found here, one of the highlights of which is Cortana – Microsoft’s version of a digital personal assistant like Google Now for Android and Siri for iOS.

With incidents like these, even the biggest ISPs like PLDT and Globe were at the mercy of international groups that maintain the undersea cable connections’ ability to repair the damage. The recent damage hit the undersea cables lying in areas between Taiwan and Japan, and China and Korea. Latest reports say that repairs are expected to be completed by around…

    A survey shows organizations will spend more on IT next year, but IT pros don’t expect those extra dollars will translate into bigger IT departments. The good news is that IT pros expect their budgets to increase in 2015. The bad news is that they don’t expect to get much staffing help as they manage an influx of new technology. This is the mixed bag of results from a survey released Wednesday by Spiceworks, an IT community platform that provides free IT management tools.

    Digital strategies that focus only on customer engagement are shallow. But to go deeper, CIOs and CMOs must be partners. For many companies these days, “digital” is almost exclusively about customer engagement, the domain of the CMO. However, the CIO is crucial in linking business processes and enterprise information to the digital channels that achieve the always-on state that customers and employees demand. The strength of the CIO-CMO relationship has never been more vital to a company’s success, yet the confusion surrounding these roles in the digital enterprise has never…

It’s often a full-time job looking for a job, so not knowing where you stand is just straight up frustrating.

    Con el lanzamiento de OS X Yosemite a la vuelta de la esquina, no es de extrañar que Apple haya decidido actualizar su línea de portátiles MacBook Pro con Retina Display. Por fuera los nuevos MacBook Pro se ven exactamente iguales, pero las especificaciones bajo el capó han sido retocadas para bien.

      Apple ha dado un paso más en favor de su negocio de libros, esta vez con una adquisición que podría hacer las búsquedas de libros electrónicos y sugerencias sean más inteligentes. La compañía en cuestión es BookLamp, con sede en Boise, Montana. Y aunque las negociaciones se iniciaron meses atrás, la noticia apenas fue confirmada por Apple el día de hoy.

    El nuevo iPhone tendrá un procesador más fuerte y una pantalla resistente a arañazos, y estará disponible con un tamaño de pantalla más grande de 5.5 pulgadas. Pero al igual que cualquier reloj barato o como muchos smartphones de la competencia es necesario que sea resistente al agua. Puede que parezca algo insignificante, pero se ha convertido en el estado del arte en el mundo de los dispositivos móviles durante el último año. Una de las reglas de satisfacción del consumidor que Apple olvida habitualmente es que las funcionalidades complejas, una tienda de aplicaciones con cientos…

    No recuerdo cuánto tiempo ha pasado desde que Apple lanzó su último comercial del MacBook Air, pero el día de ayer lanzaron uno nuevo, titulado como ‘Stickers’ o ‘Vinilos’ en español, y que resulta interesante por varias razones. Para empezar, este es el primer anuncio de la historia reciente que no muestra la pantalla de un producto de Apple. No estoy seguro de lo que eso significa, tal vez nada, pero visualmente resulta interesante. Pero no sólo no presentan la pantalla del MacBook Air en ningún momento, sino que se hace hincapié en la fiabilidad del MacBook Air, mostrando…

    Bill Wood
    7 Jul 2014 | 5:53 am
    Business & IT Strategy We hear it almost every day, IT Strategy, Business Strategy, strategic customer accounts, strategic widgets, etc. Strategy is applied to so many areas and so many things that the word has almost become meaningless.  The term “strategy” has become trite because it is used so much with so little understanding. With all the buzz around strategy, and the lack of clarity and simplicity for what Strategy actually IS, I did a lot of research several years ago and produced my own model:   What I discovered is almost universal confusion of what is tactical…
  • SAP & IT Outsourcing – RESULTS MATTER!

    24 Jun 2014 | 9:15 am
    In House vs. Outsource Business today is looking for a way to provide shareholder value.  Outsourcing has become one of the latest “crazes” to boost stock values because shareholders believe it will reduce costs.  While your share price may increase in the short term, you may not see the cost savings and your share price will suffer later as your cost basis increases. It is sad that the cost saving “dream” presented during all those sales pitches often become a “nightmare” of spiraling costs and management headaches.  If you go into your outsourcing…

    Outsourcing Motives One of the hot trends in IT is outsourcing.  The allure of smooth sailing, fewer headaches, and lower cost generally capture senior leadership’s attention.  The sales pitches about all of the success stories are often compelling.  But just like calm (but murky) waters on a mild day hide the rocks under the surface so do many of the outsourcing vendor claims. With some background understanding (and a lot of due diligence) you can avoid most of those rocks and navigate these waters. It does take work, work that your outsourcing vendor will never tell you.

    Outsourcing Tactics & Strategy In an outsourcing arrangement you have one of two approaches: work up front to reduce potential disputes or be prepared to deal with the fallout. The less aggressive you are with your outsourcing management the more profitable you are to the outsourcing company. Does fallout mean you will be in court? Sometimes yes, but sometimes it means re-negotiating a contract or, worse still, skyrocketing costs which can exceed the original costs that were replaced. Outsourcing Relationship or Arrangement The sales personnel for outsourcing will push the idea of…

In place of a conventional fan, the unit uses an open-air metal foam heatsink that boasts an enormous surface area thanks to the open-weave filaments of copper of which it is composed. The Silent Power creators claim that the circulation of air through the foam is so efficient in dissipating heat that the exterior surface temperature never rises above 50° C (122° F) in normal use...

    29 Jul 2014 | 2:25 pm
    One of the most frustrating experiences in our digital life is when we turn on the PC, and it runs like a tortoise during the startup while our schedule romps like a hare. Some of the programs installed in the computer, such as anti-malware, productivity and third-party apps and other system services, run automatically during the process, which can bog down our CPU and memory.In my case, for example, Skype, Steam and this annoying third-party JDI MyPC backup software (my seller installed it as part of the package) are active culprits that slow down my startup time, so I had to turn them off…

    28 Jul 2014 | 4:25 pm
    Smartphones and tablets suffer from a limitation in the amount of phone memory they can store. Most mid-range models can store anywhere between 8 and 32 GB of information, with some of it being occupied by the operating system. While 32 GB might initially seem like a lot (especially considering that the average size of an app in iOS is 23 MB), you’ll find that the space on your phone for other purposes is shrinking ever-so-slowly. What do you do when you run out of space? The answer currently is “nothing.” Will this always be the case? How much bigger can mobile devices…

    An Israeli Iron Dome missile is fired to intercept a rocket from Gaza.EPA/Abir SultanThe breakdown of an initial ceasefire between Israeli forces and Hamas last weekend played out to a familiar soundtrack: the wail of air-raid sirens and the menacing hiss of incoming rocket fire, followed in many cases by the concussive crackle of Iron Dome missiles intercepting their targets. The Iron Dome anti-missile system first attracted attention two years ago, when it achieved between an 80-90% success rate.

    PC gaming is a really awesome pastime. While some people prefer console gaming, it is strictly a matter of preference. I like both, but I particularly like the gamification of PC gaming hardware. In other words, the actual building of the gaming PC and buying of cool peripherals can be as fun as the games themselves. Hell, it can sometimes be more fun. One of the most fun peripherals to buy for a gaming PC is the mouse. Unfortunately, far too much emphasis has been put on appearance lately, instead of performance. Don't get me wrong, a gaming mouse should look cool and sexy, but only as a…

Their report was based on an IEEE Spectrum article called Introducing the Vacuum Transistor. Computers started out early in the last century being mechanical devices (card sorters), moved up to electronic sorters/calculators/computers with vacuum tubes and eventually transitioned to solid state devices with the silicon transistor. Since then the MOS and CMOS transister have pretty much ruled the world of electronic devices. Vacuum tube?

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.

While deducing AWS revenue from changes to the Other category is an inexact science, it is the best we have until Amazon choose to break out AWS as a line of business in their SEC filings. It's true the torrid end of 2013 growth of the Other catgeory ($960M in Q3 to $1170M in Q4) flattened in Q1 2014 (+3% to $1204M), before declining in Q2 (-3% to 1168M).

For me defining the right agile process is like the test an eye doctor gives you (“is this better or worse? is this better or worse?”). Rather than prescriptive adherence to a framework, I like to borrow freely from the rich mulch pile of software development…

We’re in week 2 of the 2011 football season, and NFL fans are tuning in like never before to root for their favorite team and players. The problem for some, however is that cable companies and the NFL are the ones who get to dictate which games they can or cannot watch on broadcast TV. Blackout restrictions and inattention to out-of-market teams (think the lonely Broncos fan living in San Diego) can make life rough; and if your a fantasy football fan forget about it: broadcast…

    I read about GoTenna yesterday – a neat little device that connects to your phone via bluetooth that allows you to send messages to other people using GoTenna even if cell service is out. It basically turns your phone into a handheld UHF radio with encryption (which you can’t do as a normal citizen with a CB). Watch the video here on the GoTenna site. I noticed the guy smoking (and selling) marijuana yesterday and chuckled. Someone at Hacker News noticed the same thing and commented on it. Another says “I think they are quite deliberately pointing out that dealers can…

    If you’re involved in the startup world in San Francisco you’ve likely been to the Creamery on Townsend and 4th street. It’s iconic, even if only recently so. In 2012 I wrote about the Creamery in a post talking about the shift in startups from the Palo Alto area to San Francisco, noting that “CrunchFund has probably closed (meaning the verbal agreement part) more deals there than anywhere else.” Other press cemented the cafe’s reputation as the place to do business. Today there are probably at least a handful of startup meetings going on there at any given…

She retracted her statements and apologized, which is the very relief I sought before filing this action, and I accordingly dismissed the lawsuit. The settlement agreement is here. Unfortunately, when you have been accused of rape — even provably falsely as I have been — there’s no way to “win”. For the rest of my life, when someone searches my name on the internet, the word “rape” will appear somewhere among the…

Which is great except that the founders are ex-NSA guys who used to be paid to do things like collect emails and phone call information from hundreds of millions of terrorist suspects Americans. The kind of stuff that this new product is designed foil. It’s like hiring Darth Vader to build planetary defense systems to thwart the Death Star. Except the analogy doesn’t quite work.
