  • Employee Fired After Posting Pictures Of DHS Vehicles Parked In Hotel Parking Lot

    24 Nov 2014 | 3:48 am
    What happens in public isn't afforded an expectation of privacy -- unless you're the Department of Homeland Security. The DHS is all about shutting down people taking photos in, around or of public structures. According to the many piles of useless paperwork compiled by the many useless Fusion Centers, the most effective terrorist weapon is any device that captures still images or video. The nation is loaded with phone-wielding terrorists. But thanks to the swift corrective action applied by a former Secret Service agent and the multi-billion dollar agency, guests at the Drury Park Plaza…

  • Nuclear weapons write their own security codes

    David Szondy
    24 Nov 2014 | 12:57 am
    Nuclear weapons are a paradox. No one in their right mind wants to use one, but if they're to act as a deterrent, they need to be accessible. The trick is to make sure that access is only available to those with the proper authority. To prevent a real life General Jack D Ripper from starting World War III, Livermore National Laboratory’s (LLNL) Defense Technologies Division is developing a system that uses a nuclear weapon's own radiation to protect itself from tampering...

    Drones are definitely one of the most fun tech inventions of recent times, but sadly, most have to stay in the loft when the weather is miserable — they’re just too big. In contrast, the SKEYE Nano drone will happily fly around the house when winter bites. Heck, you can fly it without getting out of bed. It’s 1.57” square, but it is a full-fledged quadcopter that can pull some nice tricks, too. Right now, it also has 41% off...

    Though technology is now finding its way into sports of all kinds, few have proved a hotbed of innovation like the game of golf. You could put it down to its immense global popularity, or perhaps its infuriatingly low margin for error, but man's inability to put the ball in the hole has inspired GPS-enabled virtual caddies, sensor-laden gloves and gyroscopic golf clubs.

    When we reviewed Bikesystems' BikeHUD motorcycle heads-up display earlier this year, we had two big problems with it. We weren’t impressed with the chunky "monocle" unit that sits inside your helmet, and we didn’t like the tangle of wires between the HUD and its on-bike componentry. But BikeHUD was always a product in development, and now the company is moving to fix both those problems with BikeHUD Adventure, a thin, transparent display that can run wirelessly off a smartphone, or hook into a fuller in-bike installation to give you extra functionality like live rear view camera and…

    Score another point for metamaterials. Researchers at North Carolina State University have designed complementary metamaterials that will aid medical professionals and engineers in diagnosing problems under the skin. These metamaterials are structured to account for so-called "aberrating layers" that block or distort the acoustic waves used in ultrasounds, making it possible to now conduct ultrasounds of a person's head or an airplane's wing – among other things...

  • That Time I Interviewed Click and Clack

    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…

    Jim Frederick, the first editor I had during my time as a tech writer for TIME, died unexpectedly on Thursday night. He was only 42, and I’m still in shock. 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…

    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,…

Suddenly, my eyes trained on the option to add bacon. And so I did. Next, I ordered a Cheesy Gordita Crunch, a standard in the repertoire…

    Tim Bajarin

    I have been watching the current crop of Microsoft’s TV ads that pit the Surface Pro against a MacBook Air with great interest. They also have one that shows the Lenovo Yoga vs. a MacBook Air although the majority of the ones I have seen in the last few weeks highlighted the Surface Pro. At the very least, these ads are clever. However, has it actually swayed any prospective MacBook buyers to switch to the Surface Pro?  It is probably too early to tell if there is many switchers but if you look at the channel numbers for MacBook’s in general and the MacBook Air specifically, it…

    24 Nov 2014 | 7:04 am
    Hammered by falling smartphone profits, Samsung is reportedly eyeing major changes for its senior leadership. Samsung's sales for its flagship Galaxy S5 smartphone came in well below expectations, moving 12 million units compared to 16 million for the Galaxy S4. So far, the Galaxy S5 has sold 40% fewer units than the company had anticipated. The shortfall was especially pronounced in non-U.S. markets and the company scrambling to sell inventory that languished in warehouses, according to a report from The Wall Street Journal See also: Samsung released a corporate rap video.

    WASHINGTON — A senior administration official says Secretary of State Chuck Hagel is resigning from President Barack Obama's Cabinet. His decision comes after two weeks of meetings with President Obama, the New York Times reported, with the president requesting Hagel's resignation on Friday Hagel, a former Republican senator, has served as Pentagon chief since early 2013. Obama is expected to announce the resignation Monday. The official insisted on anonymity because this person was not authorized to discuss the matter publicly ahead of Obama's official announcement.

  • Misleading Rasmussen Poll Helps Prop Up Bogus Net Neutrality Partisan Divide

    Karl Bode
    24 Nov 2014 | 7:42 am
    As we noted last week, the idea that net neutrality is a strictly partisan issue is a dated one, with several new studies indicating that support for net neutrality (and support for meaningful net neutrality rules) is increasingly common among members of all parties. As we've also noted several times, most people, when you sit them down and talk to them, understand that letting lumbering telecom duopolists write the laws, corner the market, and erect obnoxious new and arbitrary tolls, simply isn't a very bright idea or conducive to healthy technology markets. While a number of polls and…
  • German Government Refuses FOI Request By Pointing Out Document Already Leaked

    24 Nov 2014 | 5:51 am
    Freedom of information requests are a powerful way of finding out things that governments would rather not reveal. As a result, requests are often refused on a variety of grounds, some more ridiculous than others. The Netzpolitik blog points us to a rather unusual case concerning a request by the politician Malte Spitz for a letter from the Chief of Staff of the German Chancellery to members of a commission investigating intelligence matters. The request was refused on the grounds that the document was already freely available (original in German): The information you requested may be…

The DHS is all about shutting down people taking photos in, around or of public structures. According to the many piles of useless paperwork compiled by the many useless Fusion Centers, the most effective terrorist weapon is any device that captures still images or video.

  • Funniest/Most Insightful Comments Of The Week At Techdirt

    Leigh Beadon
    23 Nov 2014 | 12:00 pm
    This week, Senator Ted Cruz courted backlash from Democrats and Republicans alike with his feeble and silly tweet about net neutrality. Given the across-the-board mockery that followed, it's not surprising that both of our most insightful comments this week come in response to Cruz's tweet. In first place, we've got an anonymous comment musing about his motives: Either Cruz knows that he's lying or he doesn't. If he knows, then he's doing it deliberately in order to serve his masters, by repeating their talking points and hoping that doing so often enough, loudly enough, and vehemently enough…

    Five Years Ago A few weeks ago, we noted the anniversary of Peter Mandelson's dinner with David Geffen and subsequent plans to crack down on filesharing in the UK. This week, people began hearing murmurs about the second part of his plan: an attempt to let the government route around procedure and change copyright law at will. A few days later, the now-infamous Digital Economy Bill was presented, and it was just as bad as we feared. Meanwhile, and with perhaps-not-so-coincidental timing, Lily Allen was continuing her crusade against free music. On a more positive note, the UK courts dismissed…

  • 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…

    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…

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…

  • A View of the Future: Demo 2014

    Rob Enderle
    24 Nov 2014 | 7:10 am
    I attended Demo in Silicon Valley last week and, as always, it showcased things likely to mature in the market 12 to 14 months into the future. The presenters are small companies, hand-selected because they offer something unique and forward-looking. You have to feel a bit sorry for the folks doing the demonstrations, because they have one shot to do this right, and often the god of technology exhibits his or her sense of humor and something doesn't work.
  • Gadget Ogling: Dueling Tablets, a Smart Scale, and Slooow Games

    Welcome, dear readers, to our weekly look at the latest, greatest, and poorest gadgets to be revealed to the world. Hark as yours truly extols the virtues and horrors of two wildly different tablets, a smart kitchen scale, and video games requiring patience, among other objects. Don't shovel dirt on Nokia as a manufacturing brand just yet. It's not like the planet needs another well-known consumer gadget maker whipping up Android tablets, and yet here we are. I just have to question why in heaven's name Nokia thought it wise to make the N1 look just like an iPad.
  • NotCompatible Mobile Malware Gets Badder

    Richard Adhikari
    21 Nov 2014 | 3:44 pm
    A new version of the NotCompatible malware, which first appeared in 2012, is bigger, badder and pretty much indestructible, Lookout Security reported. And it can compromise corporate networks, thanks to the BYOD trend. The malware, called "NotCompatible C," focuses on Android devices. "Given this is an Android Trojan and the app is not trusted by Google, it would need the 'Unknown Sources' special permissions to install," said Malwarebytes analyst Armando Orozco. "So users just have to not install apps from untrusted sources."
  • Another Bleak Black Friday for Apple Fans

    Chris Maxcer
    21 Nov 2014 | 12:15 pm
    Apple is a company that bucks trends, that does things its own way, that manages its business through highly tuned cycles. One thing Apple barely does at all, though, is offer any sort of special deal or sale price. Not even on Black Friday. Or Cyber Monday. Or just because. Heck, when Apple celebrated 25 billion App Store downloads, it gave one person a $10,000 iTunes Gift Card. At 50 billion App Store downloads, another $10,000 gift card. That was pretty exciting and fun.

It was discovered on a server that already had been infected when IBM Trusteer Apex was installed -- it's not clear how the machine became infected.

Now she’s back with a brand new dating app that looks like it could offer her some revenge. It’s called Bumble, and it has a similar swipe-based system that lets people find matches.

    There are a lot of reasons for wanting to wear earplugs, one of the most popular being able to sleep without all that irritating ambient noise disturbing you. But they’re rather indiscriminate with what they block out, and the same plugs that block out the nearby dual carriageway could also block out the alarm on your phone. Thankfully Hush is working around that, since they’re a pair of smart earplugs that wirelessly connect to your smartphone so that you can still hear the ringer  without having to listen to the rest of the racket going on in the area around your bedroom.

Even before this week, the Xbox 360 and PS3 versions of this game held the record for highest-grossing game in a week (£94m total UK estimate – week 38, 2013) and also the all-time UK revenue record, reached after just 28 weeks to overtake Call of Duty: Black Ops.

  • MRAM-based magnetic sensors to help flexible OLED image quality

    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…

  • Crocus developed MRAM-based magnetic sensors for flexible displays

    24 Nov 2014 | 2:02 am
    Crocus Technology announced a new magnetic sensor that can be used to detect the shape and bendability of flexible displays. The company discovered a technique to turn their MRAM memory cell arrays into very sensitive magnetic sensors that have a much larger range than any commercial sensor.The production process is very similar to the MRAM process the company uses, but with a different cell design. 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.

  • Sony: 'You Can't Effectively Test' For Games Like Driveclub

    24 Nov 2014 | 6:11 am
    Statements like this make you wonder why no one stood up and asked "how does everyone else do it then?" "But now, in a connected world, you can't effectively test in your house or in your beta group what it means to have 50,000, 100,000, 200,000 users hit your service. And the guys [at the studio] are struggling with that. It's throwing up things they had not anticipated." Comments
  • Google Refuses MPAA Request To Blacklist 'Pirate Site' Homepages

    24 Nov 2014 | 5:11 am
    Google is pissing off the MPAA again. It's actually quite entertaining watching these two go at it all the time. The MPAA recently asked Google to remove the homepages of dozens of sites that offer links to pirated content. Google, however, refused to take down most of the URLs, likely because the takedown notices are seen as too broad. Comments

  • One small step for Robotkind

    13 Nov 2014 | 12:50 am
    Take me to your re-charging unit Like many others I was constantly checking the BBC livefeed and ESA reports yesterday as Philae landed. 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.

  • Asshole Density as a measure of Bubbles

    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…
  • Gartner's Predictions of New Trends

    7 Oct 2014 | 5:56 am
    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

    Sharma Karan
    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 DOJ argues that this encryption is a step in the…

    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…

    Asus has entered the Indian market with the ZenFone series of smartphones aimed at different price segments. The phones are selling exclusively on Flipkart and Asus has got the pricing spot on. All the ZenFones share the same design language; their hardware and software are quite similar. The retail box design has been the same for the series and we like it. You have the charger with a detachable data cable, headset, some documentation and the handset. The build quality of the charger and headset is worth mentioning.

  • A Quick Look at Android 5.0 Lollipop Running on LG Nexus 5 [Video]

    With every new version of Android, we have rising expectations of some different, perhaps new features. And, Google has surely lived upto the mark with the introduction of Android 5.0 Lollipop. When announced we were curious about these new features but are they to the par in efficiency. We had a chance to get our hands on LG Nexus 5 which got an OTA update of Android Lollipop. Here are some of the features which impressed us:- Notifications: To start off with, Google has made considerable changes to the Notification panel.

  • Misleading Rasmussen Poll Helps Prop Up Bogus Net Neutrality Partisan Divide

    Karl Bode
    24 Nov 2014 | 7:42 am
    As we noted last week, the idea that net neutrality is a strictly partisan issue is a dated one, with several new studies indicating that support for net neutrality (and support for meaningful net neutrality rules) is increasingly common among members of all parties. As we've also noted several times, most people, when you sit them down and talk to them, understand that letting lumbering telecom duopolists write the laws, corner the market, and erect obnoxious new and arbitrary tolls, simply isn't a very bright idea or conducive to healthy technology markets. While a number of polls and…
  • German Government Refuses FOI Request By Pointing Out Document Already Leaked

    Glyn Moody
    24 Nov 2014 | 5:51 am
    Freedom of information requests are a powerful way of finding out things that governments would rather not reveal. As a result, requests are often refused on a variety of grounds, some more ridiculous than others. The Netzpolitik blog points us to a rather unusual case concerning a request by the politician Malte Spitz for a letter from the Chief of Staff of the German Chancellery to members of a commission investigating intelligence matters. The request was refused on the grounds that the document was already freely available (original in German): The information you requested may be…
  • Employee Fired After Posting Pictures Of DHS Vehicles Parked In Hotel Parking Lot

    24 Nov 2014 | 3:48 am
    What happens in public isn't afforded an expectation of privacy -- unless you're the Department of Homeland Security. The DHS is all about shutting down people taking photos in, around or of public structures. According to the many piles of useless paperwork compiled by the many useless Fusion Centers, the most effective terrorist weapon is any device that captures still images or video. The nation is loaded with phone-wielding terrorists. But thanks to the swift corrective action applied by a former Secret Service agent and the multi-billion dollar agency, guests at the Drury Park Plaza…
  • Funniest/Most Insightful Comments Of The Week At Techdirt

    Leigh Beadon
    23 Nov 2014 | 12:00 pm
    This week, Senator Ted Cruz courted backlash from Democrats and Republicans alike with his feeble and silly tweet about net neutrality. Given the across-the-board mockery that followed, it's not surprising that both of our most insightful comments this week come in response to Cruz's tweet. In first place, we've got an anonymous comment musing about his motives: Either Cruz knows that he's lying or he doesn't. If he knows, then he's doing it deliberately in order to serve his masters, by repeating their talking points and hoping that doing so often enough, loudly enough, and vehemently enough…
  • This Week In Techdirt History: November 16th - 22nd

    22 Nov 2014 | 12:00 pm
    Five Years Ago A few weeks ago, we noted the anniversary of Peter Mandelson's dinner with David Geffen and subsequent plans to crack down on filesharing in the UK. This week, people began hearing murmurs about the second part of his plan: an attempt to let the government route around procedure and change copyright law at will. A few days later, the now-infamous Digital Economy Bill was presented, and it was just as bad as we feared. Meanwhile, and with perhaps-not-so-coincidental timing, Lily Allen was continuing her crusade against free music. On a more positive note, the UK courts dismissed…

  • Mourning Beard

    C.K. Sample III
    13 Aug 2014 | 9:36 am
    The last time I shaved was the morning of my father’s funeral, which was a month ago. I wanted to have a physical sign of my mourning. Originally I thought to shave my head, but the first thing that Dad said to me when I first arrived in the hospital to see him before he passed was “C.K., your hair is beautiful!” I decided to grow a mourning beard and give it at least a month. It’s been a month, and as you can see, I’m not genetically inclined to grow a beard. Or at least not quickly. It’s actually on the verge of becoming a real beard, and I’m not…

    I’ve just been really, really, incredibly busy. I see other people giving up on blogging. Like Scoble today, who is most likely doing it for a stunt, like he’s done before with Google+ and Posterous (or as I like to call them, dying and dead). It’s a stupid move. The only reason I post as much to twitter as I do is because I have a backup of all that data here on this blog. This is my space. It’s my corner of the Internet that I have full control over. It’s not some other company owning everything I post. That’s important. Since we all first started…

  • Adobe's got Photoshop running in Chrome

    21 Nov 2014 | 10:22 am
    Using Photoshop usually requires lugging a typically cumbersome, expensive computer around, and changing that experience has been the dream of many creatives for years. As we found out back in September, it's a problem that Adobe has been actively working with Google to solve. The two companies have been working together for almost two years to bring Photoshop to the browser, and they finally have a working version called Photoshop Streaming that they're letting educational institutions apply to test over the next six months. Yesterday, I got a look at it in action when Adobe's director of…
  • How to add a dedicated number row to the Android keyboard

    21 Nov 2014 | 10:20 am
    Here's one of those things that's been around for a little bit, but well hidden. If you're a fan of the stock Google keyboard but would love to have a dedicated number row - particularly given the size of many of today's smartphones - you can do it. It's not just an Android 5.0 Lollipop feature, so you're able to do this on the Nexus 6 or LG G3 or HTC One or whatever. You will, however, have to do a little digging in the keyboard settings. One of those little tips that can really make your phone better.

    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.

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.

    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.

    Amit Agarwal
    10 Nov 2014 | 7:56 am
    Gmail works around tags (or labels) and any email message can belong to one or more tags. Google Drive however uses folders instead of tags and thus any file, or folder, can have exactly one parent folder. For instance, if you have uploaded a presentation file in FolderA, it can’t simultaneously exist in FolderB. Right? Not really. You will be pleasantly surprised to know, at least I was, that Google Drive does allow you to place any file inside one or more folders without you having to create multiple copies of that file. This makes organization easier and if you edit this file inside…

  • 'Less' means more to malware authors targeting Linux users

    24 Nov 2014 | 8:01 am
    Using the “less” Linux command to view the contents of files downloaded from the Internet is a dangerous operation that can lead to remote code execution, according to a security researcher.At first glance, less appears to be a harmless command that outputs a file’s content to a terminal window and allows the users to navigate forward and backward through it. Less does not allow file editing, which is a job for file editors like the widely used vi, but has the benefit of displaying data on the fly without needing to load an entire file into memory. This is useful when dealing with large…

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. If you’re a longtime Data Connections blog reader, you know that we’ve developed relationships with a number of…

  • Mobile Data: Embeddable and Beyond

    Jeff Reser
    11 Nov 2014 | 11:43 am
    A recent article on mobile databases discusses how embeddable databases can be used on mobile devices, allowing your mobile application to satisfy its storage needs without having to rely on back-end storage services.  But for enterprise mobile applications becoming more prevalent in business environments this is not always possible or desired. We must preserve data security and avoid data synchronization issues. Leave It to OData What if you could leave the data access and API management up to someone else, and attain near real-time connectivity to data in the cloud or even in the…

Although both units have the best sensors, the iPhone 6 Plus camera showcases the optical image stabilization also known as the OIS, which iPhone 6 does not have. OIS Makes the Difference So does the fact that the iPhone 6 doesn’t have the OIS feature make a big difference? First, we need to understand what the optical image stabilization does.

    Samsung (KRX: 005930) took its dispute with Nvidia (NASDAQ: NVDA) to a new level Friday, as the company petitioned the US International Trade Commission to block the sale of Nvidia’s GPUs in the US. The lawsuit between Samsung and Nvidia began in early November, as the two companies accused each other of violating each other’s patents. Nvidia’s initial lawsuit also targeted Qualcomm, as Nvidia claimed the company uses its intellectual property in its SoCs. The complaint, if acted on by the ITC, would ban both Nvidia’s GeForce graphics card as well as mobile-focused Tegra SoCs.

    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…

    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…

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.

But many others deserve for your company to grow as well: Your existing customers deserve to do business with a thriving, successful firm.

Your family certainly deserves that your company sells more, so that all of you can live better. Your prospects deserve to benefit…

On the low end, some clients grow by “just” 5% or 10% because you can stumble accidentally into that kind of growth after experiencing the mindset change we work on, and applying just a few of the techniques I teach. On the high end, I have clients who grow by 30% and even more in their first year. (And that’s annual, from now until the end of time, as long as you choose to implement the marketing we create for you.) I’ve analyzed what separates the top growers from the ones who grow the least.

    GoDaddy, a company known almost as much for its Super Bowl ads as its actual services, announced that it will be appearing in a spot during the Super Bowl yet again in 2015. While typically, the company runs multiple ads during the big game, it will be running just a single 30-second spot this time around. This is, according to AdAge, because the company wants to leave room in the budget for international marketing. GoDaddy has historically run racy ads with scantily-clad women, but more recent campaigns have relied more on humor. You may recall the Jean-Claude Van Damme ads, for example. The…

According to Morgan’s lawyer, Benedict Morelli, it’s still unknown whether or not he will ever be able to perform again. Tracy is currently undergoing rehabilitation for damage received when his limousine was struck by a Walmart truck driver on the New Jersey turnpike.

    We love a surprise or two, in fact, there is no greater joy than discovering a feature on a smartphone that you thought did not even exist. This is exactly the case with the  Nexus 6 which is already an extremely capable device. When the device was launched, a few questions were asked of Motorola and Google about the decision to not include an LED light for notification alerts. It was a minor thing, but notification lights have been a big deal on Android phones, and just about all flagships have one. However, just like a good old surprise, Motorola has surprised us with a Notification light…

The glass series which has found home on more than 7 billion devices already is the most preferred glass housing for the display for all the major OEMs in the world.

In fact at a time when the likes of iMessage and Whatsapp were getting shot down, Telegram was making waves thanks to its end to end encryption and secure servers.

    Mobile data is as precious as currency. Despite several telecom players committing to making mobile data affordable, fact remains that data is still expensive and as a result it makes sense you want to penny drop and save every kb possible when it comes to mobile data. And one way of doing this is micromanaging when the data is on. For example, when you are asleep at night, you may not really want mobile data and might as well simply turn it off. But turning mobile data on Android phone can involve several steps, either by going into the notifications bar or into settings unless you have a…

    Intel’s current dominance lies in desktop, laptop and server processor industries. However, the tech company is planning on gaining the upper hand in the flash storage market share by adding 3D NAND flash chips to its SSDs by next year. The 3D NAND flash memory possesses twice the density of competing SSD products on the market, with Samsung already gaining the upper hand with its 850 SSD model. Unlike traditional flash memory, 3D NAND consists of multiple layers of flash memory chips that remain stacked up on top of each other. This will grant the SSD additional power, durability and…

    Text and photos by Don Halliwell In the final facelift of the current generation model, the MX-5 has an aggressive stance. The grill and front treatment look fantastic, while the rounded rear-end leaves something to be desired. The bottom line, I think it looks down right mean in Black with alloy wheels to match.   As the sun sets on the third generation Mazda MX-5, I was kindly treated to a week with one to put it through its paces. Admittedly, it’s taken me some time to put pen to paper on this review. When I was able to get behind the wheel, the weather was slightly warmer,…

    Square is being used by a lot of small businesses as a mobile credit-card reader to help process credit card payments without the expensive point-of-sale terminal. But they just might venture into the Apple Pay territory in the coming year. Jack Dorsey, Square’s founder, said that their service is more a cash register and that it accepts all forms of payments. So, they plan on developing Apple Pay compatibility sometime next year. This plan might require some changes to Square’s existing hardware but then again, if they use the NFC capability, they might not even have to tweak…

The Verge writer Josh Lowensohn demonstrated how easily you can send files through AirDrop. He sent AirDrop photos of sloths wearing spacesuits to commuters on a train in San Francisco. Of course, curiosity got to them and the file was downloaded by some. While his trick was harmless, imagine what others can do with this feature. So, it’s best you turn AirDrop’s setting off or to “Contacts…

  • Motorola Moto G 2014 (2nd Generation) Review

    15 Nov 2014 | 6:47 am
    In early September, Motorola launched the New Moto G (2nd Generation) in India which is a successor to Moto G 1st gen. In comparison to older version of Moto G, the new MOTO G 2014 features a bigger screen, an improved camera, front-facing stereo speakers, and support for expandable storage. What’s common between the duos is that both houses the same hardware, i.e. same CPU and GPU with 1GB of RAM. The battery capacity hasn’t been increased as well which is quite disappointing. The new MOTO G has been launched at a pricing of Rs. 12,999 for 16GB variant, hence cheaper than the first gen.

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.

When I landed in Cupertino in 1985, I was shocked, shocked to find that so much gambling was going on in here.

Natural experiments, living ordinary lives, unaware that their genes may hold the clue to the next superdrug.Ten years ago, scientists discovered that some people are naturally missing working copies of a gene known as PCSK9. The consequences of the mutation were extraordinary. These people, including a Texas fitness instructor, a woman from Zimbabwe, and a 49-year-old Frenchman, had almost no bad cholesterol in their blood. Otherwise, they were perfectly normal.
  • China’s Future City

    17 Nov 2014 | 9:00 pm
    China has put political muscle and technology into Tianjin Eco-City.Strolling along sidewalks shaded by plane trees, one might take Tianjin Eco-City for just another of the many residential areas sprouting up all over China. But on closer inspection, this place is different. The roadside trash cans are covered with solar photovoltaic panels so they can light up at night; free electric buses connect different districts; the drainage wells for storm water are all embedded in the curbs.

  • CMS Proposes New Quality Measure Changes for Medicare ACO Program

    Julie Clements
    24 Nov 2014 | 12:26 am
    The Affordable Care Act (ACA) necessitates the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) to launch a shared savings program to facilitate coordination among healthcare providers thereby improving the quality of care for Medicare fee-for-service beneficiaries. Accountable Care Organizations (ACO) that participate in the Medicare Shared Savings Program (MSSP) will face a new set of quality measures in the year 2015 (under the proposed Medicare Part B payment rules of the CMS). CMS focuses on increasing the total number of quality measures thereby laying higher emphasis on outcomes. A…

    20 Nov 2014 | 10:54 pm
    At the end of October 2014, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) released the 2015 Medicare Physician Fee Schedule (PFS), which updates payment policies and payment rates for services provided to Medicare beneficiaries by physicians and other practitioners. The main provision of this final rule is that physician payment rates will be reduced by 21.2 percent after March 2015. So, when the Protecting Access to Medicare Act of 2014 signed by the President (which prohibited a reduction in the PFS rates from January through March 2015) expires, physicians will see a large…
  • Alarming Rise in Adult Obesity Rates in the U.S

    19 Nov 2014 | 10:25 pm
    A few months ago, the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) data showed a decline in obesity rates in American children. Now, Gallup-Healthways Well-Being Index survey has found that adult obesity rate rose to 27.7% in 2014 from 27.1% in 2013. This is the highest annual rate Gallup and Healthways have ever measured since they began to track obesity in 2008. The survey results were consolidated on the basis of telephone interviews conducted as a part of the survey from January 1 to May 19, 2014 with a random sample of 64,546 adults in the age group 18 and older who live in all 50 U.S. states and…

    The major advancements in the field of medicine have transformed the landscape of healthcare in the United States. Surgical services are now being provided in some cases on an outpatient basis. For instance, several urology procedures are conducted in an outpatient set up as they are a preferred alternative for many patients on account of benefits such as convenient schedule, personalized care, fewer delays, lesser cost and excellent service quality associated with the same. When compared with inpatient surgery that requires a patient to stay in the hospital overnight, an OP procedure does…
  • Google’s Patient-Doctor Video Chat Service to Promote Virtual Office Visits

    Julie Clements
    17 Nov 2014 | 10:03 pm
    Google appears to be testing a service that connects patients with doctors over a video chat, opening new possibilities for virtual office visits or e-visits. According to the Verge report, this feature is being tested across a limited number of users, who can see a blue icon on their search results when searching for basic health information (for example, knee pain). On clicking this icon, they can talk to the doctor over a video chat. From this, we can expect that virtual office visits may become more accessible for patients. If this feature becomes successful, there is bound to be a…

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…

From our own practice, the majority of cloud training students represent non-technical careers and positions. Our training does follow the CompTIA Cloud Essentials course criterion, and is not a technical course, so the non-technical…

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…

    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…

  • Is it time to open your own online store?

    Peter Horsten
    31 Oct 2014 | 12:03 pm
    You might have started selling online through a market place like Amazon, Etsy, eBay, Cqout or your local favorite like DaWanda in Germany, Marktplaats in The Netherlands or Allegro in Poland. Hopefully, your business is growing and if things go well you will soon need your own platform. Increasingly you will face the relatively high costs of the platform you use, but more important is the fact it doesn’t allow you to grow and stand out from the crowd. It might be high time to have your own branded store to really engage with your customers. So, how do you know when it’s time to take…

  • Better spend your social marketing budget on valuable fans!

    Peter Horsten
    21 May 2014 | 5:04 am
    It sounds obvious to spend your social budget to please valuable fans, doesn’t it? So why aren’t we doing so? It looks like we are shooting in the blind, meanwhile complaining that the ROI of social media is poor. Fortunately, it’s possible to learn who your valuable fans are and what they appreciate. Once you are aware of that, the magic begins. During infoShare 2014 (22-23 May) in Gdansk we will discuss this topic by sharing our concerns and experiences with today’s social media practices. Abusing social media is too easy The barrier for entry to social media is very low. You…
  • Great to be nominated for Best IT firm of the year

    Some weeks ago we were informed that Goyello has been nominated for the Award “Best IT firm of the year – Poland” handed out by the Central and Eastern European Outsourcing and Shared Services Association. On 6 February 2014 the Award Gala will take place for which the invitation has just arrived. I’m really excited to join this unique event and of course I’m even more curious about the final result.

    Probably you have been investing a lot of time and money this year to increase your social follower base. Did it pay off? 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. They are happy that they managed to increase their follower base, but don’t know if this had any impact on their brand awareness, engagement, sales results, etc. The…

  • Why SSL Certs Are Important and How to Strengthen Your Website’s Security

    Thomas Oppong
    24 Nov 2014 | 5:17 am
    Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) is a widely accepted technology for establishing a secured connection between a web server and a web browser. Thawte puts it in a much simpler way to understand “An SSL certificate is a bit of code on your web server that provides security for online communications. When a web browser contacts your secured web site, the SSL certificate enables an encrypted connection. It’s kind of like sealing a letter in an envelope before sending it through the mail.” SSL protects sensitive online data as it travels from one site to another. Here is how SSL works…

    Well, 2014 is drawing to a close. It was a big year, full of interesting developments. From the Ice Bucket Challenge to the #motelBK, it’s safe to say that it surprised us. But now the time has come for one of those year end lists, an ambitious survey of the current contours of the industry and a prediction about what lies ahead in 2015. The end of 2014 was very fruitful for this endeavor, because it happened to contain quite a few last-minute product and feature announcements that give us a taste of what we can anticipate in 2015.

    Doing startups takes guts. it’s a painful process and hard to successfully pull off. Starting a business will absorb every moment of your day. Everything takes longer than expected. You will be developing the product, working on a website, handling some unique customer service issues, making payroll for employees when you begin to hire etc. Being an entrepreneur means more than a great idea and a killer product launch. It means you invest yourself, your soul, into your work. Maybe not forever. But definitely long enough to get momentum, stability and the resources to get other smart…

    Business travel is currently one of the world’s comeback kids. As companies cautiously step out from the shadows of the all too recent global financial crisis, the idea of jetting around the globe to seal the deal once again seems both feasible and – more importantly – necessary. Such trips do however present a degree of risk and it is therefore imperative that they are carefully planned to maximise their potential. Some of the most important elements to plan are those that the traveller encounters before they even meet their client. Are you booking the right flight? Have you…

Over the past few years the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) has created a flood of new gTLDs covering a wide variety of concepts, locations and products.

    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?

The roll of selfies and the idea of meeting new people had me thinking I was on Tinder, but upon closer inspection I was on the ON homepage. ON is like a smorgasbord of the best features from other social media platforms and combines it into one experience that could change the way we meet new people. ON as a standalone app does what Tinder does; discover and meet new people through photos. What ON does differently is take the best parts of Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, Snapchat and Tinder and roll…

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.

    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.

    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…

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…

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…

  • Global and China FPCB (Flexible Printed Circuit Board) Industry Report, 2014

    20 Nov 2014 | 9:00 pm
    In 2014, price decline continued to deteriorate, which led to a sharp fall in revenue of South Korean vendors. 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.

At only 0.44mm thick, it can survive up to 80% of drops from a height of 1 meter (3ft). Corning conducted a series of drop tests to find out what damages drop phones the most.

  • 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…

  • 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…

    Google’s has finally retired its “carousel” of hotel listings in search results, and the feature that replaces it has implications for businesses of all kinds, not just the hospitality industry. For some time now, searching for accommodations—like “Atlanta hotels”—would bring not just the normal search results, but a horizontal slider of listings showing pictures, reviews and ratings (the carousel). Clicking on any of these would bring up an expanded listing in the knowledge panel on the right-hand side of the screen, including an option to instantly book a room at that…

    Logan Paul, a Vine phenomenon who we have profiled in the past, just uploaded this horrifying Vine this past weekend. It was brought to my attention by The Daily Dot's Cooper Fleishman, who messaged me with: "This has to be fake, right?" Originally, when you created a Vine, you had to create it within the app in one take. Now you can create the video elsewhere (on your phone or on a professional camera) and upload it into the app, leaving lots of opportunity to edit. It takes some of the magic and creativity out of Vine. What do you think? Fake or not fake?Join the conversation about this…

The book was supposed to be about Barbie’s successful career as a computer programmer, but it depicted her as anything but. In the story, she accidentally infects her friend’s computer with malware and can’t write a line of code without a man’s help. She only contributes to the design of the game she is working on, not the more technical back-end, and seems perplexed by even the most simple computer programming problems.

    AMD is doing what it does best that puts pressure over its competitors in some form- cost of the actual product and price cuts. Earlier, it was reported that AMD is working to reduce the price for its R9 290 GPUs. Now its also reported that according to AMD, FreeSync enabled displays will cost $100 lesser than Nvidia G-Sync enabled panels.

    If we continue to tolerate this form of “entertainment”, before we know it, our society would be watching live porn right before their eyes and be so completely blinded and numbed by the media to see it as harmless amusement. Heck, it’s happening now—a lot of people aren’t even able to tell what can harm us as a society with the kind of sex-obsessed culture we are creating. 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?

    Recently, I downloaded a video off the Internet that was in Hindi and I needed to add English subtitles to the video so that I could share it with some friends. 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…

    Earlier today I had to boot a client computer into safe mode and delete a virus via the command prompt because whenever Windows would load, the file would become locked and hence undeletable! There are several other reasons why you may have to use the command prompt in your life (though rarely), so it’s good to know how to navigate your way around! If you have been meaning to learn how to use the command prompt in Windows, I’ll go through some of the basic commands that are performed most often.

    Every decent website is made up of text content that explains to the viewer what that business or organisation is all about.

  • Review: Togs handlebar thumb grip extensions

    Ben Coxworth
    23 Nov 2014 | 2:50 pm
    Back in the 90s, a lot of mountain bikes sported handlebar end attachments – they provided the rider with more hand positions, plus they were claimed to increase leverage. Since then, bar ends have largely fallen out of favor. This has been partly because of concerns over them hooking onto things like trees, and partly just due to the whims of fashion. Now, however, a new product is attempting to bring back some of the attributes of bar ends, without their bulkiness or hooking hazards. They're called Togs, and I recently got to try a pair out. ..

    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…

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.

    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…

  • Fitness tracking data in courts – persuasive, but not conclusive

    Angela Daly, Research Fellow in Media and Communications Law at Swinburne University of Technology
    23 Nov 2014 | 7:35 pm
    No longer restricted to elite athletes, personal fitness data can be collected from people jogging, going to the gym – even sleeping. Josh Janssen/Flickr, CC BY-NDBeyond simply counting steps, fitness tracking technology creates personal black boxes that archive everything we do – even sleeping. So it’s not surprising to see that a Calgary law firm, representing a fitness instructor injured more than four years ago, announced last week it will use data taken from the plaintiff’s FitBit as an “objective” measure of activity in a personal injury lawsuit in order to show a…

From simple phishing scams to creating fake Wi-Fi networks, the methods in which data can be stolen from smartphones seem endless. In research to be published in the journal Computers & Security in February, colleagues at the University of South Australia and I showed it’s even possible to pick up data from Android devices by “listening” to sounds humans can’t hear.

    How much of an ice bath is a placebo? Andreas Nilsson/Flickr, CC BY-NC-NDWhether an athlete has endured the repeated joint stresses of a marathon run, or the relentless battery of hits during a football match, many will opt for a post-activity polar plunge into an ice-cold bath. There is method to this madness, though – many studies show that ice baths allow athletes to recover faster, train harder and ultimately perform better, and are thought to accelerate the body’s recovery, preparing it for the next gruelling training session. Given the subjective nature of muscle soreness, might the…

PCs still rule within the walls of business and will likely continue for a while. Why has the corporate PC been spared from this down cycle? First and foremost, we are in the midst of a business-centric refresh cycle. The factor that has received the most attention when attempting to explain this new growth is Microsoft’s end-of-life (EOL) support for Windows XP in the…

It has a front-end that looks largely like a chauffeured luxury ride, but beyond that, it is a sporty two-door drop top. Pardon us for our bluntness, but we have always associate two-door cars, outside of trucks and vans, with a more sports car design and that’s including the front. Anyhow, I am sure the Bentley Grand Convertible will have its fair share of lovers and fans – if it ever gets produced.

What??? A four-seater roadster? Well, apparently that’s what Lexus is proposing with the LF-C2 Concept Roadster, which kind of help to mess up the long standing traditional ‘categorizing’ of car body type. Basically, it did what a four-door coupe did, challenging the status quo, though we’re not sure it is even necessary. Anyways, this golden yellow ride is a peek into the…

    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…
  • Think tanks and block chains

    30 Jun 2014 | 2:23 am
    Anil Dash: I teamed up with Kevin McCoy to create monegraph. It’s a system that uses the block chain technology which underpins Bitcoin, but puts it to work in service of artists, so that they can verify that a digital work is an original, with a verifiable provenance. I describe the context of the work in A Bitcoin for Digital Art, my first piece for Medium’s “The Message” collection, and we also showed it off with a demo at the most improbable of venues, TechCrunch‘s Disrupt conference. The response overall has been great, as you can tell from the monegraph…
  • Snapchat’s future

    18 Jun 2014 | 2:29 pm
    Our most basic need right after survival and concurrently a key quality of the human condition is the need to connect and communicate. I’m an avid Snapchat user for almost a year now and sold thenceforth on its ephemeral premise. A friend from the States dragged me into it long before it went huge in Europe as well1 — a great idea in retrospect, since it eliminated a lot of communication friction, both formal and informal. It connects. Snapchat’s “[…] pure sharing, the ‘lowest-commitment form of communication.’”. I’m also a Casey Neistat fan. And today…
  • Automate Git, g++, Dash with Bash

    14 Jun 2014 | 3:53 am
    I was browsing around Github when I found Jim’s Git-aware prompt repo. A nice bash hack to display the current git branch name in your terminal prompt when in a git directory. After installing it struck me1 — I can automate tedious terminal commands with Bash aliases. 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. Now that’s a futile life; typing this multiple times a day. But thank Richard Stallman for…
  • On which a computer passes the Turing Test for the first time

    9 Jun 2014 | 3:41 am
    Yesterday, a computer simulating a 13-year-old boy named Eugene passed the Turing Test at an event organized by University of Reading at London’s Royal Society. 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…

Their SvSAN, software defined storage  solution has been around since 2009, and was originally intended to provide shared storage for SMB environments but was changed in 2011 to focus more on remote offices/branch offices (ROBO) for larger customers. What makes the SvSAN such an appealing solution is that it’s a software-only storage solution that can use a…

    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,…

    10 Nov 2014 | 9:52 pm
    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.

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…

    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. As a streaming service,…

    Telegram has become my favorite messenger app after WhatsApp failed to provide iPhone 6 Plus compatible update even after iOS 8 released globally for iOS devices. WhatsApp silently introduced Read Receipts notification feature to all devices, and you can find a post about how to turn off whatsapp read receipts notification here. It wasnt a necessary and expected update by users, still whatsapp delayed the update for iPhone devices and i noticed frequent crashes and the stretched blur whatsapp screen was irritating. After iOS 8.1.1 released, the next day WhatsApp released a long waited update…

    Just a few years ago, buying a home sight unseen would have sounded absurd and something only wealthy international jet setters might consider since a few hundred thousand dollars is chump change to them.

    "Sleep hygiene" is one of the most overlooked aspects of health in the US and around the world. While most people know they should get “around eight” hours of sleep, that doesn’t take into account the quality of that sleep, how many sleep hours they need as a unique individual, or any other aspect that […]

    I had the pleasure of participating recently at a Georgetown Law Center conference called “Privacy Act @40.”  My panel was on “Looking Ahead,” and my comments focused on new ways that the United States is (and can) extend appropriate privacy rights to citizens of other countries. Today, just a couple of weeks later, Google has […]
  • Public Perceptions on Privacy

    12 Nov 2014 | 7:08 am
    Today’s new report by the Pew Research Center gives the lie to the notion that privacy is unimportant to the average American. Instead, the big take away is that individuals feel like they lack any control over their personal information. These feelings are directed at the public and private sector alike, and suggest a profound […]

    15 Nov 2014 | 12:27 pm
    I was asked in a blog comment today how I decide what to write about. And once decided, how do I go about doing it. In this case, the answer was easy, I decided to try to answer the question. And deconstruct the process I go through as it happens. Instructions: Read this post in black font first, then come back and look at the gray which deconstructs my thinking. Every story needs a starting point, I added the next paragraph in the second iteration of the post to create some context. And maybe to establish some kind of credentials and an authoritative tone. Why would you, the reader who does…
  • Lose the WWW

    I have finally removed the www from The 1990’s have passed and www no longer makes sense in URL’s. Maybe it’s time you did the same to your site too. What triggered this change was that, as of 14 October 2014, Google Analytics started throwing an error if you had links to and This is because it treated links with www and without as different. Removing the www was easy. I used Global Search and Replace (⇧⌘F in TextMate 2) to find //www.hiltmon and replace it with //hiltmon. Then regenerated the site. But we are still faced with…
  • Simple C++ Testing With Catch in Xcode

    Hilton Lipschitz
    26 Oct 2014 | 11:34 am
    Catch is a simple, open-source, dependency-free unit testing framework for C++ projects. In this post I show you how to use it in a Simple C++ Project from Xcode. Why Catch? I am writing fast C++ libraries for work and need to wrap them in unit tests to ensure that they continue to operate and perform as they evolve. My number one constraint is that these libraries must be dependency-free. The only tools that I may use to compile or install these libraries on any platform (in my case OS X and Linux) is a C++11 compiler and a C++ standard library. Nothing else. This dependency-free requirement…
  • Gist TextMate Bundle Updated for Yosemite

    Hilton Lipschitz
    18 Oct 2014 | 9:44 am
    Thanks to Michael Sheets, the Gist TextMate bundle now works in TextMate 2 on Yosemite. The issue was that the UI code in TextMate 2 relied on Ruby 1.8, and Ruby 1.8 is deprecated and no longer installed in OS X 10.10. Michael created a shim to fake Ruby 1.8 until such time as the code base moves to Ruby 2.0, implemented the change in the Gist bundle and it’s working now. You can get the source at GitHub or just wait until it gets propagates via TextMate 2’s bundle update process. Follow the author as @hiltmon on Twitter.

    24 Nov 2014 | 7:55 am
    The list of music services that won't impact your data cap on T-Mobile is getting much longer today. The carrier has added Google Play Music, Xbox Music, SoundCloud, and 11 other music apps to its Music Freedom initiative. Those three are the big names, but T-Mobile says it's also added listening options for fans of EDM, jazz, Caribbean, and Bollywood-style music. "Today we’re taking another huge step toward our ultimate goal of including every streaming music service in the program," said T-Mobile CEO John Legere in a statement. "Anyone can play. No one pays.

  • Redbox's rental prices are going up

    Chris Welch
    24 Nov 2014 | 7:35 am
    Redbox has always been aggressive about pricing. Taking home a DVD or Blu-ray from one of the company's rental kiosks is cheaper than paying to watch the same movie via iTunes or Amazon. That's not changing just yet, but the cost of Redbox's 24-hour rentals is going up by at least 25 percent starting December 2nd. Currently priced at $1.20, DVD rentals will increase to $1.50. And Blu-rays, now $1.50, will go up to $2.00 — a 33 percent hike. But even with the higher prices, renting a film from Redbox is still cheaper than going the digital route, where new releases typically cost around…
  • Drones and virtual reality headsets are a delicious combination

    24 Nov 2014 | 7:28 am
    We're going through an exciting period in the development of consumer drones. DJI has perfected the formula for a unit that bridges the gap between something anyone can fly right out of the box, but still packs enough power to excite professional fliers and filmmakers. Parrot, which built one of the more successful among the first generation of consumer drones, is trying to take things to the next level with its new unit, the Bebop. Even better, they are building it with a simple integration to virtual reality headsets like the Oculus Rift, opening up an amazing new way to experience flight.
  • My experience with Coin Beta in the real world

    24 Nov 2014 | 7:20 am
    I don't carry around a traditional wallet. Instead, I've got a pile of cards held together with a hair-tie. I've been carrying around this "wallet" for over three years, and it's worked really well for me. I preordered a Coin Beta because I was intrigued by the technology, and I'm always looking for ways to simplify things and diminish clutter. I thought, "Could I slim my wallet down even further with this device?" After many months of delays, I finally got Coin in the mail. I had actually forgotten about it, and when it showed up in my mailbox I was desperate to try it out. I was desperate…
  • Get Android 5.0's trusted places feature on any Android phone

    24 Nov 2014 | 6:45 am
    Locking your phone with a password or PIN code is a necessity when you're out and about, but when you're in the safety of your own home or office, it can be a real pain to unlock the thing every time you look at it. As noted by my colleague Vlad, Android 5.0 Lollipop has a super useful feature to address this: you can set your home or office as a "trusted place" and Android will automatically disable your lock screen when you are there, reactivating it when you leave. But Android 5.0 Lollipop is still a long ways off for a lot of Android users, so I set out to find a way to have this feature…
