    8 Sep 2014 | 5:00 am
    We live at a time when the “Internet of Things” is starting to gain traction in our life.  It seems every new product sold today can easily connect to the Internet through a wireless connection, which is usually a wireless router. Of course, as with most things created, it may seem like a good idea to be able to get access to your devices remotely, it also means that malicious users may also be able to gain access to your devices. I have many devices in my home that connect to my wireless router, and while I am always conscious about security, I am confident in my devices…

The findings run contrary to recent claims that chimps fight only if they are stressed by the impact of nearby human activity—and could help explain the origins of human conflict as well.Read more of this story at Slashdot.

  • 2015: The Battle For Our Body Begins

    Much of the battleground of computing throughout tech history has been for our desks, our laps, and our pockets. In 2015, the battleground for our body will begin. It can be argued that battle had already begun but my firm belief is a true market for wearable computing has not yet emerged.

Still, I can’t help but wonder if the iPhone, if all smartphones, will fundamentally alter our relationship with our most trusted, faithful, ready-to-die-for-us-but-until-then-let’s-go-for-a-walk companions. The arrival of the iPhone has, for better and for worse, diverted significant chunks of our attention away from both people and places. That much we know. But what about our dogs? Do we no longer require their fellowship? If not, what happens to them? I do not know. The possibility of this scenario is…

Facebook started deleting accounts of hundreds of members of the drag community last week after deciding these profiles were in violation of the policy. Read More

     In the first installment of One Lap, Matt Galligan joined me at Thunderhill Raceway to talk about his mobile news application, Circa. I first met Matt in Boulder, Colo., in early 2010 shortly after he started SimpleGeo, an infrastructure provider for location-aware applications. A few years later, he sold SimpleGeo and founded Circa. Along the way, he’s learned a lot of lessons about… Read More

  • How it Happened and What it Was Like to Spend Two Hours with Steve Wozniak, Founder of Apple

    8 Sep 2014 | 12:07 am
    By: Hillel Fuld (@Hilzfuld) Many years ago (ok, not that many but 5 years in virtual land is a lot!), I decided I was going to interview people who inspire me. Since then, I have been doing so as often as I can. Here are all my superstar interviews. When I first decided to try to reach these people, I set my goals quite high and even made myself laugh at the thought of ever accomplishing the goal of meeting and/or interviewing the Woz. Well, it took me all those years but then a few months back, I managed to land my Woz interview. That is old news though, so why am I telling you this? Well,…
  • How and Why to Interview Superstars with Twitter and Google+

    10 Aug 2014 | 10:03 pm
    By: Hillel Fuld As you might have noticed, I have been posting interviews with some of the shakers of the Web and tech industries. This is something I started doing a while back. While these interviews have been a great experience for me to learn from some of the biggest names out there, the main advantage has been the relationships I have created. I love the fact that I can DM Alyssa Milano or joke around with Robert Scoble. I have spoken to Mike McCue on the phone (he is just as nice as online), and I am always learning from Chris Pirillo. Why am I telling you this? Because, as awesome as…

    By: Hillel Fuld (@hilzfuld) As you might have noticed, I like to interview people. Really important people. I literally made myself a list of individuals that I would one day, somehow, hope to have the privilege to interview. Some of them were a little out there. You know, people like the actress Alyssa Milano (remember Who’s the Boss? Good times.), Om Malik, the father of tech journalism, and even Steve Wozniak who founded this small company called Apple with his buddy Steve Jobs in their garage. I set myself some pretty high goals and so far, so good. Alyssa Milano One of the people…

    By: Hillel Fuld (@hilzfuld) Listen up, folks. I am not a big fan of product leaks or Apple rumors. I mean, we all know that prior to every big Apple launch of any kind, the rumor mill goes into high gear. How often are those rumors accurate? Not very often… But then there are some sources that you just know are reliable. Marques Brownlee is one such source. And this video of the iPhone 6 display is obviously legit so can we just put that behind us and discuss the topic at hand? Great.

    By: Hillel Fuld (@hilzfuld) Listen, I have no intention of starting an iOS vs Android debate here so if that is why you opened this article, allow me to introduce you to the little X in the corner… I use an iPhone 5S as my daily phone and until recently, there was no way I was going to replace that with an Android device. Yes, I am fully aware that some of the newer Android flagship devices are more impressive than the iPhone, in both personality and looks, but for me, despite many MANY attempts, I stuck with iPhone. I have played with the Nexus 5. I have even played with the HTC M8.

  • Jimmy Kimmel Joins John Oliver In Explaining Net Neutrality

    Mike Masnick
    18 Sep 2014 | 8:50 pm
    A few months ago, John Oliver did an amazing job making net neutrality into a mainstream issue, by reducing it to its core element: that it's all about "preventing broadband provider fuckery." That was a great segment that truly went viral. But, still, the TV folks have remained pretty quiet on the issue. However, it appears that another late night comedian has jumped into the game as well, with Jimmy Kimmel doing a segment last week trying to explain the fast lane/slow lane issue in rather graphic form: It's not quite as detailed or informative as Oliver's, and the "joke" is a bit obvious…

    Only three countries have developed manned space vehicles: Russia, US and China. However, since the retirement of NASA's space shuttle program, the US has not had a vehicle (of its own) ready to take astronauts to space. The European Union, Japan, and India have plans to develop manned space programs, and several commercial ventures are working on various ways to get people into space (or at least close to the edge of space). Here are a few ways Americans might get into space in the not-too-distant future. NASA will be sending astronauts into space on Boeing and SpaceX rockets in a few years.

    Last month, we were among the first to report that the federal court system's electronic document system, PACER, had deleted a bunch of cases. The folks who run PACER came back with a completely nonsensical defense of the move, claiming they were updating some systems and some of the documents were on older systems that weren't compatible. Of course, none of that explains why no one figured out how to move those documents to the more up-to-date system. Nor why PACER gave no prior notice of the deletion. Nor why it didn't even try to work with any one of the many, many public repositories of…
  • Did Apple Keep Or Remove Its Warrant Canary Concerning PATRIOT Act Requests?

    Mike Masnick
    18 Sep 2014 | 2:35 pm
    Last fall, we wrote about how Apple has placed a warrant canary in its first ever Transparency Report, noting: Apple has never received an order under Section 215 of the USA Patriot Act. We would expect to challenge such an order if served on us. In case you haven't been keeping track, the Section 215 orders are so called "business records" requests. It's the basis for the orders to Verizon demanding metadata on all calls. It's not the whole PRISM program, which details more specific requests for content and metadata. A "warrant canary" is pretty much exactly what it sounds like. Since these…

    With all that's gone on with the NSA leaks, one thing has been made abundantly clear: the idea of operating in the world without having eyes on us or digging through our motives, is dead. The NSA, admitting it or not, has unilaterally decided that we don't deserve privacy and that our daily lives are an open book should they have any contrived reason to take a peek. Even members of Congress appear to be under such scrutiny. Yet it appears that at least some of the folks that work in our version of the thinkpol don't take kindly to being examined and filmed in public. The NSA sent someone…

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

    18 Jun 2014 | 12:10 am
    After finishing the XTERRA Malibu Creek 22K race in May, I took some time to pick my next challenge. I finally decided on running my first 5K race, the inaugural Father’s Day 5K 10K Race in Ventura on June 15. This race had a couple of appealing aspects – it had a beach cruiser giveaway and the course happens to be on one of my favorite training routes. I also liked the idea of doing a 5K run to determine my “5K pace” which is helpful for planning workouts. For example, if I’m doing a certain type of interval run I can determine the pace based on an actual 5K…

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…

    This past Sunday I went out for a run/hike at Malibu Creek State Park, next to Calabasas. No I didn’t see Justin Bieber but I did have a fancy Porsche tailgating me as I tried to find the park entrance. I had run into the XTERRA Malibu Creek Trail Run race in a magazine and thought I’d check out the site. Once I got to the Park I found out that parking was $12 and that they didn’t take credit. If you go to a park and have cash on hand, pay it. They need the revenue. I didn’t have it so I parked up across the street. More on this in a bit. If you’re more of a…

The Santa To The Sea was on a very flat course with an elevation loss but the Ojai race features a bounty of rolling hills. As part of my training for this race, I ran the last 3 miles of the race on one weekend and ran the larger loop part of the course last week. I’m glad I did the training runs and tracked my heart rate because it helped me create a plan of attack for the race.

    Stanley Goodner
    18 Sep 2014 | 1:18 pm
    It’s hard to escape portable Bluetooth speakers these days. They’re everywhere, and the competition continues with ferocity. It’s almost getting to that point where they all sort of just blend together. But every once in awhile, one catches your attention and singles itself out. In the case of the Inateck BTSP-10 Bluetooth speaker, it was the artsy design, with a bright logo against a field of blue, that piqued my curiosity. Design & Connectivity Boxy-looking portable speakers are fairly common, but I like how the Inateck BTSP-10 has a little bit of excitement going on. Hexagons.

  • Opera Sings for Linux Users, With Just a Few Sour Notes

    Jack M. Germain
    18 Sep 2014 | 7:05 pm
    Opera offers an interesting alternative to the Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox Web browsers, but its recent Linux release leaves some room for improvement. Opera previously enjoyed a reputation as the go-to browser of choice for mobile environments. However, Opera Software, the developer, ignored Linux users for quite a long while until now. Opera's Version 12.16 is a very usable release -- but it is not without drawbacks. Perhaps its biggest accomplishment is creating a library of Firefox-like extensions.

    Amazon on Wednesday introduced a slew of new Kindle Fire tablets and Kindle e-readers. It also unveiled a new OS based on Android KitKat. The top-of-the-line product is the company's Fire HDX 8.9, which sports a Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 quad-core processor, with each core running at up to 2.5 GHz, and a GPU that's 75 percent faster than that of the previous Fire HDX.

    Logitech has announced four new products for the smart home in its Harmony family that let users control TVs, set-top boxes, speakers, lighting, thermostats, door locks, window shades and more. Users can trigger activities such as dimming the house lights in several ways: by pressing a button on their remote; passing a sensor; using the Harmony mobile app; or by setting up an automatic schedule. The idea "is to integrate all your home's devices into a single experience and centralized system," said Logitech spokesperson Kelsey Sherman.

    With every new iPhone release, Apple delivers a handful of new iPhones to a select few industry journalists to review. How are those journalists and publications selected? First, they are known to appreciate the Apple aesthetic -- they have written dozens of positive reviews. No Apple haters allowed, which makes sense. It's important to set the stage for positive vibes when launching a new product -- a professional marketing launch with billions of dollars on the line is never organic.
  • Nintendo Blows Some Minds With Hyrule Warriors

    17 Sep 2014 | 3:38 pm
    Nintendo's Hyrule Warriors, which was released in Japan last month and will arrive in North America on Sept. 26, is a very different kind of game. Nintendo called in help from two outside studios: Team Ninja; and Omega Force, the creators of Dynasty Warriors. The result is a game that looks a lot like The Legend of Zelda, but the game play goes in a very different direction. Hero Link once again is called to save the realm, but things immediately take an unexpected turn.

    Bill Brenner
    12 Sep 2014 | 6:31 am
    Included in all the tweets and Facebook postings about the 13th anniversary of 9-11 yesterday was this from friend and co-worker Martin McKeay: Never forget 9/11 and terrorism. But don’t forget how many rights have been taken from us in the name of fighting terrorism. He’s got that right. There’s been plenty of outrage in recent years over the U.S. government running wild, violating our privacy in the name of security. The Bush Administration was rightly criticized over warrantless wiretapping. More recently, the Obama Administration and such government agencies as the NSA…

    If you look closely, the 1996 Tim Burton film “Mars Attacks!” offers us a few security lessons. Let the following clip play as I run through some examples… Lesson 1: If you release a white dove over someone’s head before you verify who you’re dealing with, you have failed to practice due diligence. The resulting bad press could damage your brand.

    Growing up in Revere, Mass., taught me some very simple lessons about information security. Note: When people hear the name Revere, they think of these things: Paul Revere’s ride, guns, the IROC-Z automobile, lots of gold chains and language that doesn’t include the letter r at the end of a word. Information security? You probably think I’ve lost what little sanity I had. But I’m serious.

    There are times where I just marvel at the abject stupidity of some folks. Case in point was the posting on Pastebin over the weekend where a group of “hackers” (wow, I use that term lightly) calling themselves “Wycked” posted a database dump from McDonald’s Malaysia. The premise being that they compromised the site. Small problem with that however. You see, the “Havij Injection Project” already posted that same database dump in February 2012.

    Although these acronyms and the constant evolution of cellular and wireless network technologycan be baffling, the important thing to understand is that a variety of networks are used to provide data connections to your users ’ devices. As with the physical and diversity - related challenges of the devices themselves, you need to be cautious about assumptions for these connections.Speed or throughput of the network connection is an obvious constraint.

    As you might imagine, the networks responsible for bringing content and services to a mobile device are also notably different from the networks to which you connect laptops and desktops. Many contemporary mid - and high - end mobile devices include WiFi data connectivity, and when used in that mode, the device is connecting to a local access point, which, in turn, is most likely connected to a regular broadband - grade connection. In this case, the network connection for the device is fast, reliable, and low in latency — just as it is for the other computers and devices that are connected…

    Less than 5 years ago, when most mobile devices used their own embedded or simple real - time operating systems, it appeared to mobile web developers as though there were as many operating system versions as there were models of devices. Given that these operating systems tended tocontain their own varied browser implementations, with no option for users to upgrade them or install alternatives, the challenge of delivering a reliable web experience to all of them was almost insurmountable. Such browsers were typically very limited, and often derived from their WAP browser precedents, provided…

Very old mobile devices can be easily recognized by their larger, ungainly form, but following a period in the 1990s and 2000s, during which manufacturers sought to develop ever smaller devices, most modern devices are now of broadly similar size and weight. Not by coincidence, this is about the size that fi ts comfortably into an adult hand.A limited selection of device form factors tend to prevail in today ’ s mobile market place. Some…

    Apple has expanded its use of two-factor verification checks to protect data stored online by its customers, after a massive breach last month that saw thousands of nude celebrity photos stolen from iCloud. The BBC says the move follows suggestions that third-party software had been used to steal the photos. It says that the security facility remains an opt-in choice, although some experts believe that Apple should make it the default option.

    The founders of Siri are working on a new service called Viv that can link disparate sources of information together to answer questions: But Kittlaus points out that all of these services are strictly limited. Cheyer elaborates: “Google Now has a huge knowledge graph—you can ask questions like ‘Where was Abraham Lincoln born?’ And it can name the city. You can also say, ‘What is the population?’ of a city and it’ll bring up a chart and answer. But you cannot say, ‘What is the population of the city where Abraham Lincoln was born?’” The system may have the data for both…

    When I was growing up, I was fascinated by space. One of my earliest memories—and I know this is strange—is, when I was four or five years old, trying to grasp the concept of emptiness in space. I imagined the vast emptiness of space between galaxies, nothing but emptiness. I tried to imagine what that meant, but most of all, I tried to imagine what it would look like. That question, what color empty space would be, rolled around my brain the most. I couldn’t shake it. I would be doing something–playing Nintendo, coloring, whatever–and that question would pop into my…

    3 Jun 2014 | 11:57 pm
    Monday’s WWDC Keynote was easily the largest set of changes made to Apple’s platforms since iOS 2 was announced in 2008. The effects of what was announced will be felt and discussed for years to come. There is a lot to think through and write about, which I will be doing in the coming weeks. However, something struck me during the keynote that felt fairly small but, upon thinking about it afterward, I think could end up being important to Apple’s future success. Apple announced further updates to their cloud service where you can save all of the photos and videos you take,…

Mojang, based in Sweden, announced that the founders Notch, Carl and Jakob will be leaving as part of this acquisition.

  • Faster STT-MRAM via different field-like orientation

    31 Aug 2014 | 4:13 am
    Researchers from the A*STAR institute in Singapore suggest a new design that could make STT-MRAM devices faster. Using a computational model, the researchers tried different designs for the relative orientation of the magnetic fields in both MRAM layers (the 'field-like' term).The strength of the 'field-like' term depends on the device geometry and the materials used. Devices with a strong field-like term has a greater potential to reduce switching times than for devices in which the field-like term is negligible. A better understanding of the field-like term is still needed, but this work…

    18 Sep 2014 | 3:13 pm
    The latest edition of Comscore‘s monthly online video report has arrived, and for the first time in years, VEVO has been unseated from the number one spot in the network rankings. Instead, it was Maker Studios that had the most unique US viewers in August, scoring more than 45 million of them in total. Maker’s rise to the number one position was fueled by a huge increase over last month. In July, Maker had 33.4 million unique US viewers, fewer than both VEVO and Fullscreen. In August, that number rose by 11.9 million, bringing Maker’s total 3.1 million viewers higher than…

    What do you get when you combine The Dark Knight with Beetlejuice? James Franco provides the answer in his new AOL Originals web series Making a Scene. The multi-talented actor signed a deal with AOL earlier this year to create the digital series, where he re-imagines some of the most well-loved movie scenes of all time by lumping two of them together in one go. Franco asked his fans what some of their favorite movie scenes and genres were, compiled a list of the most popular responses, and put them on a wheel his team could spin to see which two random items they’d have to re-create.

    On September 17th, the third annual Friskies honored the best cat videos of the previous year. The competition was fierce, furry, and adorable, but in the end, there can only be one: “Dumpster Kitty“, which stars a pair of cats from Tampa, Florida, took home the Grand Prize and won its submitter a cool $25,000. The Friskies first called for sumbissions at the most recent VidCon, where online video stars Grace Helbig, Jesse Wellens, Zach King, Henri Le Chat Noir, and The Fine Bros showed their support. The Friskies’ judges narrowed the selection down to 12 contenders across…

    18 Sep 2014 | 11:00 am
    700 new donors to your church in one week? Think that’s crazy? Think again. Cross Point Church, one of the fastest growing churches in the Southeast, recently utilized a new text-to-give platform called Textify Mobile with resounding success. Senior Pastor Pete Wilson walked churchgoers through the simple steps for using Textify one Sunday morning. Within minutes, people were sending their tithes and offerings to the church with a quick text message. Seven hundred of those who gave that Sunday were first-time givers. Many ministries may be familiar with text-to-give, but not many are…

  • Big Plans on Small Budgets

    Chad Ferris
    18 Sep 2014 | 7:00 am
    Before getting into full time ministry, I spent many years running a consulting firm tailored to small and medium sized businesses. It was a really rewarding time for me because I got to help people solve problems, but it also created tension because small and medium sized businesses have big plans on small budgets. Does that sound familiar? If you serve or work at a church that doesn’t sit under the “Megachurch” banner then most of your tech projects probably require high dollar functionality with low dollar budgets. The church where I am on staff is exactly this. In the…

Its specifically built to replace the mouse and be used as an input for your computer. I thought to myself, I am a graphic designer, and a graphic designer should use a tablet, right? Well, the answer to that is sometimes. It certainly isn’t for everyone, but for those who will push through the learning curve, its heavenly. I’ve been using my tablet for a week straight now.

There are now 2 active connections to this console” Or… “Unable to connect to the MKS: Console access to the virtual machine cannot be granted since the connection limit of ‘x’ has been reached.”  (This second one is most likely to come up when you have either a STIG or security defined limitation to the number of remote connections to use, thus by default you’re more likely to see message #1!)

And now the "ad" is spreading across the Internet, with customers eager to ditch tangles of cords once and for all. Repeat after me: microwaves are for food, not iPhones. Wireless charging in the vein of how the Moto 360 powers up is one thing. But if a trip to your kitchen's microwave to power your next day's worth of iMessages, Instagrams, and Snapchats…

    Larry Ellison, CEO of technology giant Oracle, is stepping down from his current role, to become the company's chairman and chief technology officer. He founded the company in 1977, and though 37 years have passed, you wouldn't know it looking at the now 70-year-old executive. Sure buying a Hawaiian island and amassing nearly $50 billion in wealth likely helps one remain youthful, but there's got to be more to it. In what follows, what we speculate would be Larry's six-step guide for capturing the fountain of youth.

    Apple released iOS 8, its shiny new software for mobile devices, yesterday and while we're pretty much in love with all of the neat things you can do with the new OS, it's definitely not for everyone. The iPhone 4S is, in fact, eligible for the upgrade but an experiment by Ars Technica revealed that older Apple devices are significantly slowed down by iOS 8. Updating the iPhone 4S cut performance speed in half in Ars Technica's test. Apps like Safari, Camera, Mail, and Messages really struggled in iOS 8. With the older iOS 7.1.2, the iPhone 4S loaded a Safari page in 1.25 seconds and, with…

  • The Role of the Reflective IS Scholar-Practitioner

    1 Sep 2014 | 3:55 pm
    While there will always be a demand for competent Information Systems (IS) professionals, let’s face it: in this economy, competence isn’t good enough. It’s the merely competent who will get the pink slips when the bottom line demands payroll cuts. The real plum jobs, the kind that provide tenure for those supercompetents who practice them well, are those that have more far-reaching implications than a simple ability to maintain the servers and keep the databases in order. One way to achieve this pinnacle of success is to become a reflective IS scholar-practitioner. What…

    Everyone knows that robots are merely lifeless machines, no matter how amazing their abilities may be. However, you may be surprised at how often scientists replicate the features and capabilities of living creatures to increase robotic performance. In fact, there’s even a whole branch of robotics called “biomimetics” dedicated to that single premise. The term biomimetics means literally to “mimic life.” Insects are one form of life from which biomimetic scientists draw significant inspiration for new types of robotic technology.

  • Predicting iPhone development via Moore's Law

    9 Sep 2014 | 12:57 pm
    iPhone 6 launched today, apparently the "Biggest Advancement" in iPhone history. In 2010 we made some predictions about iPhone 6 specs based on a Moore's Law progression (see chart above, written in 2010 - as a commentator notes, 2010 "Hot PC's" had gone up a few notches too by 2014), we thought it would be interesting to go back to that - we were estimating it would: - Launch in 2014 (got that right) - 4Ghz processor (actual apparently 25% faster than the 1 GHz processor in the iPhone 5) - 2 Gb RAM (not yet known but unlikely to be 4Ghz) - 256 GB Memory (currently only 128, same as iPhone 5)…

A judge in Spain ruled that Brett and Naghmeh King must be held [in custody] for up to 72 hours while the court considers whether to grant a British extradition request. The couple, who were arrested in Spain after the five-year-old was taken from a UK hospital without doctors' consent, told the judge in…

Well, in ths case it was an open secret the system was compromised- Business Insider: The ability to gain access to Apple's iCloud accounts has been an open secret among users of porn message boards for years, with enterprising users charging others to "rip" accounts and share nude photos. But even if it was not an open secret, from an information security point of view data in Cloud systems is a nightmare compared to data on your own systems.

  • Jimmy Kimmel Joins John Oliver In Explaining Net Neutrality

    Mike Masnick
    18 Sep 2014 | 8:50 pm
    A few months ago, John Oliver did an amazing job making net neutrality into a mainstream issue, by reducing it to its core element: that it's all about "preventing broadband provider fuckery." That was a great segment that truly went viral. But, still, the TV folks have remained pretty quiet on the issue. However, it appears that another late night comedian has jumped into the game as well, with Jimmy Kimmel doing a segment last week trying to explain the fast lane/slow lane issue in rather graphic form: It's not quite as detailed or informative as Oliver's, and the "joke" is a bit obvious…

    Only three countries have developed manned space vehicles: Russia, US and China. However, since the retirement of NASA's space shuttle program, the US has not had a vehicle (of its own) ready to take astronauts to space. The European Union, Japan, and India have plans to develop manned space programs, and several commercial ventures are working on various ways to get people into space (or at least close to the edge of space). Here are a few ways Americans might get into space in the not-too-distant future. NASA will be sending astronauts into space on Boeing and SpaceX rockets in a few years.
  • Senator Leahy Asks Why The Federal Court System Dumped A Bunch Of Court Documents Down The PACER Memory Hole

    Mike Masnick
    18 Sep 2014 | 3:46 pm
    Last month, we were among the first to report that the federal court system's electronic document system, PACER, had deleted a bunch of cases. The folks who run PACER came back with a completely nonsensical defense of the move, claiming they were updating some systems and some of the documents were on older systems that weren't compatible. Of course, none of that explains why no one figured out how to move those documents to the more up-to-date system. Nor why PACER gave no prior notice of the deletion. Nor why it didn't even try to work with any one of the many, many public repositories of…
  • Did Apple Keep Or Remove Its Warrant Canary Concerning PATRIOT Act Requests?

    Mike Masnick
    18 Sep 2014 | 2:35 pm
    Last fall, we wrote about how Apple has placed a warrant canary in its first ever Transparency Report, noting: Apple has never received an order under Section 215 of the USA Patriot Act. We would expect to challenge such an order if served on us. In case you haven't been keeping track, the Section 215 orders are so called "business records" requests. It's the basis for the orders to Verizon demanding metadata on all calls. It's not the whole PRISM program, which details more specific requests for content and metadata. A "warrant canary" is pretty much exactly what it sounds like. Since these…
  • NSA Agent Is Oh So Shy About Being Filmed/Questioned In Public

    With all that's gone on with the NSA leaks, one thing has been made abundantly clear: the idea of operating in the world without having eyes on us or digging through our motives, is dead. The NSA, admitting it or not, has unilaterally decided that we don't deserve privacy and that our daily lives are an open book should they have any contrived reason to take a peek. Even members of Congress appear to be under such scrutiny. Yet it appears that at least some of the folks that work in our version of the thinkpol don't take kindly to being examined and filmed in public. The NSA sent someone…

    Amazon is looking to hook ‘em young with the Fire HD Kids Edition tablet, and with all the money Amazon appears to be throwing into the production of this thing, it’s going to be awfully hard to beat. Kids tablets tend to fall into one of two categories—completely closed-off systems like the LeapPad 3 or watered-down Android tablets with heavy parental control software, like the Kurio. The Fire HD Kids Edition falls into the latter category, but it would be a mistake to say it’s watered down. This tablet has a 720p HD display and a quad-core processor, putting it at…

    Amazon’s newest eReader, the Kindle Voyage, is maybe the biggest jump in terms of design that Amazon has ever made with the Kindle line. It’s a pricey jump, but one that could be worth it for readers looking for a premium device. The Kindle Voyage ditches the plastic displays the Kindle has always used for a glass face that covers the entire front. It’s still a Paperwhite display, though, so you’ll get the front-lit illumination that made the Kindle Paperwhite so comfortable to read while in the dark, but now with 39 percent more brightness.

    It has been well established that SEO is just as essential to a blog writer as it to is to a website content writer. If your blog content is not garnering a good readership despite the high quality of content in the post, it could mean that search engines are not finding your blog.

Ideally, striking the balance between quality and SEO would not only open your blog post to discovery, but can even lead to and sustain a loyal readership.

    In-depth iOS 8 review at Ars. With this release, Apple is trying to make additions that developers and power users want without upsetting people who come to iOS specifically because of its consistency and simplicity. It's telling that just about every major iOS 8 feature can be disabled or ignored, and that big transformative features like third-party extensions are hidden from view by default. A surface-level glance at iOS 8 suggests an operating system that isn't all that different from iOS 7. Look just a little deeper, though, and you'll see just how different it is.

However, recently the app was beefed up a bit with some new edit features added that make it more compelling (and fun) to use.

    Data in its most raw form starts as an infinite, formless river of facts and figures, but with increased mobile adoption, workers in the enterprise are demanding beautiful data that’s consistent with the user experience they’ve come to expect from their non-enterprise apps. While Excel has been the go-to tool to transform tables into charts and make sense of raw data – it’s main limitation is the freshness of the data. By the time it reaches the business users, the info is stale. With more workers spending time on their mobile devices, it only makes sense for the enterprise to be able…

Instead, ask for feedback, thoughts, reactions, opinions, etc. “I’m wondering, how would you say you’ve improved since we’ve started working together? What, specifically, has become better?” Same goes for referrals: don’t use the word, which actually decreases the odds of you getting one! Instead, ask for who else your customer knows:…

Mark Allen Hughes of Sweetwater, Tenn. was not at all happy to learn that his 15-year-old son was drinking illegally. As a minor it is of course illegal for him to do so. Fearing that his son was headed down the wrong path, Hughes allegedly took it upon himself to demonstrate the evils of alcohol by forcing his son to participate in a twisted drinking game.

    According to the Center of Digital Education, K-12 schools in the U.S. will spend almost $10 billion on educational technology in 2014. In higher education, the National Retail Federation states that student spending for electronics (tablets, laptops, etc.) is up 20% from last year. There’s no doubt that classrooms are going digital – yet even with the increase in tablets, Chromebooks and other mobile devices, there remains a strong need to print. But printing from these mobile devices can be a challenge – with software downloads and kludgy apps that may or may not be effective. With…

    National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), despite its recent tight budget, has not moved away from dedicating itself to further exploration in the space. Most of its recent endeavors are geared toward unveiling facts about asteroids and the Red Planet, Mars; as part of the program, they have put together a capsule like spacecraft named Orion.

So far, it has been a monopoly for the Russian Federal Space Agency Roscosmos; it flies passengers in Soyuz capsules, bullet shaped space-taxis, to the space. Roscosmos’ dominance in this sector will soon be over as NASA bites space-taxi bullets by entering the business; the American space agency has teamed up with Boeing Co. and SpaceX for making this project successful.

  • How Linking to Knowledge Could Boost News Media

    Frédéric Filloux
    14 Sep 2014 | 11:32 am
    A key way to differentiate value-added news from commodity contents is to rework the notion of linking. Thanks to semantics and APIs, we could move from dumb links to knowledge linking.  Most media organizations are still stuck in version 1.0 of linking. When they produce content, they assign tags and links to mostly internal other contents. This is done out of fear that readers would escape for good if doors were opened too wide. Assigning tags is not exact science: I recently spotted a story about the new pregnancy in the British Royal family; it was tagged “Demography”, as if…

In previous Monday Notes dealing with the putative iWatch and other “wearables”, I thought the new product would be a nice add-on to the iDevices ecosystem — a bit player that would make the iPhone more desirable —  but that it wouldn’t move the needle, meaning $10B or more in revenue.

    Jean-Louis Gassée
    7 Sep 2014 | 4:40 am
    This week’s product launch should break the mold of Apple’s recent Fall announcements: More products than usual and a challenge to the status quo – in payment system this time. A larger iPhone; a line of wearables (unveiled if not yet ready-to-ship); significant iOS improvements (a true “iOS 2.0HomeKit and HealthKit devices, applications, and partnerships; payment systems… If only half of the rumors about Apple’s September 9th media event are true, we’re going to have a wider and deeper flood of new products than we’ve seen in Apple’s previous Fall launches.

  • Legacy Media: The Lost Decade In Six Charts

    Frédéric Filloux
    31 Aug 2014 | 2:15 pm
      Ten years. That’s how far away in the past the Google IPO lies. Ten years of explosive growth for the digital world, ten gruesome years for legacy media. Here is the lost decade, revisited in charts and numbers.  The asymmetry is staggering. By every measure, the digital sphere grew explosively thanks to a combination of known factors: a massive influx of capital; the radical culture shift fostered by a “blank slate” approach; obsessive agility in search of new preys; flattened hierarchies; shrugged-off acceptance of failure; refocusing on the customer;  a keen sense of…

  • How To Create Stunning Flowcharts With Microsoft Word

    Saikat Basu
    18 Sep 2014 | 11:00 am
    If man were a logical beast, math would be the easiest subject and love wouldn’t exist. Thankfully, when it comes to logic, the right tools can help simplify any process. Flowcharts are among those visual thinking tools that go grossly ignored for non-technical tasks. Maybe because flowcharting started purely as an engineering skill and didn’t go beyond the draft boards of industrial planners. With its leap towards computer algorithms it became more mainstream. Again, it need not be a technical exercise. Use them with imagination, and you can simplify both your work or life with…

    When it comes to working and getting things done, traditional belief leads most people to think that silence is key. Noises are what distract individuals from their work and prevent them from accomplishing the things they need to accomplish. However, more and more tests reveal truths quite opposite to this conventional way of thinking. Although too much noise can certainly be distracting, silence is not the answer either. So where does the answer lie? The answer is quite simple: background noise. In fact, the answer is so simple it benefits us in ways we don’t even realize. As the nature of…

    Nowadays, healthcare cost is surging considerably in the United States. It is quite evident from the fact that most patients need to contribute a good amount of money towards their Medicare payments. While considering employees with health insurance coverage, many employers or insurers require that they cover a greater share of the total medical costs through increased co-payments and deductibles. These out-of pocket costs can be large especially for those patients with chronic medical conditions such as asthma that need regular and timely medical checkups. A new study reveals that low income…

CMS says it doesn’t plan to review the billings of doctors who almost always charge for the most expensive visits because it isn’t cost-effective to do so. A review by the Office of Inspector General (OIG) found that Medicare inappropriately paid almost $6.7 billion for Evaluation & Management services in 2010. Released in May 2014, the review…

  • How does Nomad determine network bandwidth and protect your network? Ping? Nope. Try Reverse QoS instead

    Troy Martin
    17 Sep 2014 | 3:36 am
    Network Ping, DiffServ, QoS or something special? There are lots of ways to calculate network bandwidth. A network ping can determine WAN speed but this is not ideal as many organizations disable ICMP for many security reasons. Windows firewall alone blocks a lot of ping traffic by default due to the inherent security issues that can be associated by it. DiffServ can give good Quality of Service (QoS) but requires hardware investment that can utilize this technology not to mention some solutions leveraging this technology only calculates QoS on edge routers.

    A few years ago, I was a student in higher education working towards my degree in Computer Science.

I was developing in Turbo Pascal or C or, worse still, access to COBOL (yes, I’m showing my age). It didn’t take long before I was finding the cash to buy myself a home PC.

    Aside from the first day of classes, no event signifies the start of another academic year better than U.S. News and World Report’s annual rankings of the United States’ best colleges and universities. And similar to past years, MIT finds itself at or near the top in nearly every category, including overall rankings, in which the Institute is ranked seventh, and the top-ranked undergraduate engineering program, a position it has held for 25 consecutive years.

    16 Sep 2014 | 1:27 pm
    Just finished another ICT-related technical assistance visit with a developing country government. Even in mid-2014, I spend a large amount of time teaching basic principles of enterprise architecture, and the need for adding form and structure to ICT strategies. Service-oriented architectures (SOA) have been around for quite a long time, with some references going back to the 1980s. ITIL, COBIT, TOGAF, and other ICT standards or recommendations have been around for quite a long time as well, with training and certifications part of nearly every professional development program.

  • What Value Can I Expect from Cloud Computing Training?

    30 Aug 2013 | 6:31 pm
    Normally, when we think of technical-related training, images of rooms loaded with switches, routers, and servers might come to mind.    Cloud computing is different.  In reality, cloud computing is not a technology, but rather a framework employing a variety of technologies – most notably virtualization, to solve business problems or enable opportunities. From our own practice, the majority of cloud training students represent non-technical careers and positions. Our training does follow the CompTIA Cloud Essentials course criterion, and is not a technical course, so the non-technical…

    In skiing, the “black diamond” run or ski slope is often referred to as “high risk/high reward.” You receive lots of “reward” skiing the black diamond slopes, but you have a significant amount of “risk” associated with variable terrain, such as the presence of trees and the possibility of injury. However, the black diamond slopes are very fun to experience, and you can mitigate the risks with preparation, practice, and a really good skiing helmet. Data science is one of those “high risk/high reward” concepts in technology. An organization can gain huge financial rewards by…

    Hike is a messenger application available for Android and Windows Mobile.

    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.

These came from competitors or even competing groups and you watched them come and go. Some were ingenious and you admired them for their design. Some were real stinkers.

    The average person has over 100 apps on their smartphone these days, but people far from use all of them. In fact, most people use only 20-30 apps on a regular basis. When I was at Nielsen I dug into this kind of data on a regular basis, and have since seen a lot of data form other sources that pretty much show the same thing. One thing that is apparent is the difference between ages when it comes to app consumption and time spent using the device, with millennials leading in the later category. What I’ve also seen is a further segmentation of people and how they use their smartphone and…

  • 5-Star Rating Yanked by Yelp? Court Says It’s OK

    Dave Paul

    How much would you pay for a 5-star rating on Yelp? How about to make those bad reviews go away? So far, Yelp hasn’t officially offered anything of the sort—but a court decision earlier this month says they can if they want to. Yelp was taken to court in California on allegations that it was “extorting” business owners by pressuring them to pay for good ratings. Yelp denies the allegation, but apparently it needn’t worry: the Ninth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals says that fixing ratings is fair play. That surprises many business owners. Yelp has become perhaps the biggest destination…
  • Google’s HTTPS Incentive Is Little Incentive At All

    Dave Paul
    5 Sep 2014 | 8:01 am
    Want to get more traffic for your website? How about investing in costly web encryption that you don’t actually need? That’s the proposition that Google put forward last month, when it announced an incentive for site owners to switch to HTTPS (hypertext transfer protocol secure). For the record, HTTPS is the more-secure form of the familiar HTTP, the protocol that transfers data over the web. Right now the majority of websites don’t use HTTPS because they don’t need it, but Google says it’s now using HTTPS as a signal in search ranking algorithms. In other words, make the switch and…
  • Google Authorship Comes to a Crashing Halt

    Dave Paul
    29 Aug 2014 | 12:54 pm
    Yesterday Google announced the end of its great Google Authorship experiment as it relates to search results. Author snippets won’t be shown on SERPs and authorship markup will not weigh in search ranking, effective immediately. Authorship has had a mixed history. While Google was interested in the idea as far back as 2007, it was only with the launch of Google+ that it gained any traction. Suddenly, authors could link all their work back to a single Plus profile and get credit across the web. But the victory was short-lived: by 2013 Google reduced how many author snippets it showed per…

    So you're about to get your brand-new iPhone 6 or 6 Plus, and chances are you'll want to get a case to protect it. iPhones have a reputation for breaking easily, and early reviews of the iPhone 6 have said that Apple's newest phone is especially slippery. iPhone accessory makers have been hard at work creating new cases since before Apple even unveiled the phone, so there are plenty to choose from.  Here's a look at some of the best offerings so far.Apple's iPhone 6 Leather Case ($45) Apple has a new leather case for the iPhone 6 that has a soft microfiber lining on the inside for…

    Alibaba, the enormous Chinese e-commerce company, is expected to begin trading on the New York Stock Exchange this Friday. At its helm is founder Jack Ma, a charismatic leader who started the company with 18 friends out of his small apartment in 1999. Although Ma is no longer CEO of Alibaba, he's still the face of the company Ma has succeeded because he is relentless, and some of his more memorable quotes — "Today is cruel, tomorrow is crueler" —  illustrate how that relentlessness has formed his thinking.On not giving up: "Today is cruel.

    Since the early days of the internet, entrepreneurs have dreamed of moving grocery shopping online. It's finally starting to happen.  We've created these slides to preview our report on how e-commerce is finally beginning to carve up the groceries market, the biggest untapped e-commerce opportunity. Americans spend $600 billion a year on groceries, the largest retail category by far. Less than 1% of those sales occur online. Same-day delivery services, specialty grocers, and meal-preparation businesses will drive fast growth in online groceries — much faster rate than…
  • Oracle's New Co-CEO, Mark Hurd (ORCL)

    Julie Bort
    18 Sep 2014 | 4:45 pm
    Mark Hurd has been promoted to co-CEO of Oracle, now that Larry Ellison is ending his 37-year-long CEO reign. This is Hurd's' third time at the top of the org chart. He was previously CEO of NCR Corp. after a 25-year career there. Then he spent five years as CEO of HP, from 2005 - 2010, a stint that ended in a scandal and Hurd's resignation. Hurd was asked to resign after he was accused of inappropriately submitting corporate expense reports over a relationship with a female contractor. He left with a severance package worth $50 million. At the time, Ellison famously came to Hurd's…

    Happy birthday Malaysia!! Just how awesome is our country, that we celebrate an Independence Day AND a Malaysia Day, not to mention 2 New years day, (or 3 if you count Awal Muharram). So on that note, I decided to use my IT skills for the good of the country. To be honest, my IT skills have never been up to par, my day job is more managing/planning/documenting than actual execution of ‘real’ IT work. But it was good for me to dust of the ol’ programming fingers and learn Python to grab some publicly available information and make it more accessible to the less IT centric…
  • Is Malaysia’s Broadband slow–no it isn’t.

    Keith Rozario
    14 Sep 2014 | 8:31 am
    Recently KiniBiz did a piece on Malaysian broadband speeds, and once again the hoopla about how Malaysian broadband speeds are slow arose. Kinibiz quoted an article from Asean DNA which stated that the average broadband speed in Malaysia was just 5.5 Mbps, while Thailand, Vietnam and Singapore had speeds that were double that (or more!) The report however was inaccurate, and I think there’s a need to address the hoopla, because this happens often. There was a report couple months back that said Cambodia had faster speeds than Malaysia, and I wrote a post addressing that. This time I…
  • A Techie’s view on the Law

    Keith Rozario
    8 Sep 2014 | 7:30 am
    Are some laws worth following–in other words, are some Laws so idiotic that they should be ignored completely? That sounds anathema, because we have a romanticized definition of the law, we define the Law as a broad general agreement a society undertakes, and the law keeps society from tearing itself apart. In other words, the law is so sacred because without it–we descend into anarchy, so ignoring the law is akin to promoting anarchy. But I’m not speaking of “The Law”, I’m speaking of “A law”, specifically an Act of Parliament. “The…

    You all know how much I love nearlyfreespeech, it’s one of the best hosting providers out there. Here’s one more reason, recently they alerted me to a suspicious number of login attempts to my wordpress site, which usually means someone was trying to hack it. If you remember the post I did about the RHB bank scam, it’s quite common for hackers to inject pages onto a wordpress site to help them carry out banking scams. This was probably something similar. Fortunately, the guys over at nearlyfreespeech were not just kind enough to log the attempts and alert me, but even…

    Uber, a company that connect passengers with drivers of vehicles for hire and ridesharing services–is now banned in Malaysia. The Uber service was viewed as a god-send by citizens of KL simply because the existing taxi service in the city–is Shit! So why did the Government choose to ban a service, that was improving public transport in KL? For the small matter that it violated a couple of laws–no big deal really. Laws are made to be broken aren’t they? There’s no need to go into the details of whether Uber is legal or illegal, that’s an irrelevant point.

So when the Audioengine A2+ also came for review I was more than a little excited to run them through their paces.

Who planted it, or if its genuinely leaked is the oldest discussion you’ll see concerning leaks about information about any tech product. But a new GPU cooler design for the AMD Radeon’s upcoming GPU- Radeon R9 390X- came at the time when Asetek released a press release, stating that it secured a design win with an undisclosed OEM customer- for a GPU liquid product.

Según Apple, se consiguió un número “récord” de pre-ordenes el día 12 de septiembre, pero no fue hasta hoy cuando la compañía anunció la cifra oficial. Eso es dos veces el…

    El CEO de Apple, Tim Cook, confirmó recientemente una característica muy importante del Apple Watch, y es su capacidad para reproducir música sin la necesidad de un iPhone.

Y con un auricular Bluetooth, podrás reproducir y escuchar tu música sin el iPhone. Dicho esto, sólo hay dos formas en las que el Apple Watch puede reproducir tu música sin necesidad de un iPhone.

    Sabemos que el Apple Watch de Apple vendrá en tres versiones: básica, sport y de lujo. La edición de lujo estará disponible en oro de 18 kilates, pero no sabíamos que dicha versión costaría al menos 1200 dólares. Un joyero familiarizado asegura que la versión de oro de 18 quilates podría costar alrededor de 1200 dólares cuando sea lanzado en enero. Esta cifra no es más que una estimación hecha por joyeros en función del tamaño y el peso del reloj. El único problema es que no todo el reloj está hecho de oro, de modo que el peso total del reloj no puede usarse para la…

    If man were a logical beast, math would be the easiest subject and love wouldn’t exist. Thankfully, when it comes to logic, the right tools can help simplify any process. Flowcharts are among those visual thinking tools that go grossly ignored for non-technical tasks. Maybe because flowcharting started purely as an engineering skill and didn’t go beyond the draft boards of industrial planners. With its leap towards computer algorithms it became more mainstream. Again, it need not be a technical exercise. Use them with imagination, and you can simplify both your work or life with…

    Aseem Kishore

    By default, the My Documents folder is located in Windows XP and Windows Vista is located on the same drive or partition as the operating system. This is fine for anyone who has only a single drive or a single partition on their computers, such as the C drive, but if you have more than one physical or logical drive on your computer, it’s best to move your My Documents folder off the system drive. In Windows 7 and Windows 8.1, the situation is a bit different. In Windows 7, you have libraries, which are kind of virtual folders that basically link to other folders that can be located…

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…

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…

  • Can you train your brain to crave healthy foods?

    Amy Reichelt, Research Fellow at UNSW Australia
    18 Sep 2014 | 8:02 pm
    The mere sight of a slice of gooey chocolate cake, a cheesy pizza, or a sizzling burger can drive us to eat these foods. In terms of evolution we show preference for high calorie foods as they are an important source of energy. We tend to crave these rich, tasty foods not only when we are hungry, but when we are emotional, bored, or stressed out. Burgerlicious Flickr We show a preference for these sugary and fatty foods as they are not only energy dense, but because our brain releases certain neurotransmitters when they are eaten. These neurotransmitters include dopamine and serotonin, which…

Flickr/Nic McPhee , CC BY-SAGovernments around the world want to know a lot about who we are and what we’re doing online and they want communications companies to help them find it.

  • Categories of creationists ... and their views on science

    Chris Mulherin, PhD candidate and Lecturer at University of Melbourne
    18 Sep 2014 | 1:32 pm
    The term 'creationist' can encompass many types, each with their own beliefs. Logan Campbell/Flickr, CC BY-SAJohn Long provoked a comments barrage on The Conversation last week after defending the theory of evolution in the face of creationist views. Unfortunately, while some of the comments were thoughtful, others were dogmatic statements of position, mostly against vaguely and misunderstood “creationism”. Perhaps it’s worth clarifying “creationisms” rather than committing the Dawkinsian fallacy of tarring all religionists with the same brush. After all, the list of serious…

It is a few days shy of being a new moon, which occurs on September 24. This is when the moon joins the sun in the daytime sky.

  • You can buy the past from Apple, or the future from Motorola

    Joe Wilcox
    18 Sep 2014 | 5:05 pm
    Moto X should be one of the most hotly-demanded smartphones on the planet. But Motorola lacks Apple's skill cultivating core groups of bloggers and journalists who swoon ecstatically and influence others to do the same. For example, I thought Stephen Fry's outrageously over-the-top adjective-rich iPhone 6 review was hilarious until reading The Register's parody, which is almost believably genuine. Motorola bets on voice interaction over touch, making Moto X more like a device from Star Trek than the early 21st Century. Touch is oh-so 1980s -- what Apple pitched with the Macintosh 30 years ago…
  • Apple Watch could distract drivers more than smartphones

    Darren Allan

    Apple Watch is off to a rather shaky start, as some folks feel it isn't as smart looking or svelte as we were expecting, and others don't believe it has enough functionality, and doesn't do anything different from existing smartwatches. And now UK motoring organization the Institute of Advanced Motorists (IAM) is putting the boot in -- on all smartwatches, mind, although the organization’s press release highlights Apple's -- and the risks of using such a gadget while driving. Smartphones are already a danger in terms of the temptation for drivers to use them while on the road, and IAM…

    15 Sep 2014 | 3:45 pm

You couldn’t order piecemeal or wait for some orders to roll in first, you had to buy a bunch and hope for the best. Still, writers would pay thousands of dollars for this option if they were not able to find a publishing company.

    There are many ingredients that go into building a company: hard work, emotional fortitude, agility, willingness to take risks, fanatical commitment to driving customer value, ability to execute in the face of ambiguity, and more. But there is one ingredient that often gets overlooked: an ability to will something to happen. If entrepreneurship is the creation of something from nothing, that process starts with a belief the something can be made to happen. What is often started by the willpower of a single individual, can only expand by surrounding yourself with committed and like-minded…

    A little more than 26 hours after it had started, the votes were tallied and the winners announced. The prizes for the winners ranged from Bose headphones to dinner at a local restaurant to stock options. Steve took home our top prize for his work on internal customer reporting, which received lots of cheers, the loudest of which came from our solution architects. But before I get ahead of myself, let me go back to the beginning. I’m a big believer in company sponsored hackathons. They provide a much needed break from the daily grind of building a product, and can be a cathartic release for…
  • Talent Density

    15 Sep 2014 | 3:40 pm
    As a founder and hiring manager of a fast growing startup, I’m always in hiring mode. When I recently heard news a local company had laid off engineers, I went straight to LinkedIn to view the profiles of their engineers. But unlike everyone else in Boston, I wasn’t looking for a list of names to call. Instead I wanted to get a sense of the talent density at this company. Talent density works like this: high quality engineers prefer to work with other high quality engineers. The result is that good engineers typically be found in clusters. This is true for the companies for which they…
  • AWS & The Wizard of Oz

    9 Sep 2014 | 1:14 pm
    I will confess: I both admire and respect Amazon. If all they ever achieved was to be my go-to online store and stream TV / movies to my house, I’d be a big fan. I also appreciate their near maniacal focus on the customer, their organizational productivity at scale, the commitment to being a technology company, and their willingness to take risks. But they did something even better that will forever endear me to them: they eliminated my need to ever touch physical server and storage infrastructure again. ;) But there is one side of Amazon for which I’m not a fan: their secretive side.

  • Competitive Analysis

    7 Sep 2014 | 10:04 am
    I’m not a big fan of competitive analysis. While I generally know the high-level value of different products in a market, you’re unlikely to find me taking a deep dive into a competitive product. This is a change from a decade ago, when I was convinced a key component to success was knowing the competitive market as well as I knew my own product. I used to spend hours at SilverBack analyzing a competitor’s website, talking to their current and former customers, and sitting through demos. But over the last decade I stopped focusing on competitors for two simple reason: It distracted…

    Telecommunications giant Huawei is making another push to grab some of the smartphone market share outside of China with the Ascend P7, but how does the flagship 4G smartphone compare to the leading smartphones on the market today? Design Huawei describes the phone as lighter and thinner than the competition, and they may well be right with the P7 just 6.5mm thick (139.8 x 68.8 x 6.5 mm) and weighing in at 124g. That makes it slimmer than the iPhone 5S, Samsung Galaxy S5 and Sony Xperia Z2, and lighter than its Android competitors as well. However, beyond just its size there is little in…
