  • MIT study redefines the role of meteorites in the formation of the early solar system

    Anthony Wood
    26 Jan 2015 | 8:47 am
    Until now, it has been generally accepted that a meteor constitutes a time capsule – a relic of the early creation of the solar system that has fallen to Earth, allowing us to delve into the distant past by looking at the composition of the essentially unchanged material that formed the basis of planetary formation. However, a new study carried out by researchers from MIT and Purdue University seeks to challenge the established belief, asserting that rather than representing the kernel of planetary creation, that they are instead a by-product of the violent and often cataclysmic process...

    Last week's CMT show in Stuttgart, Germany put the spotlight on a highly versatile Volkswagen camper van. The Bett Mobil carries a sliding pod (reminiscent of the DoubleBack van) inside a versatile camper-in-a-box package.

  • Vampire bat-inspired drone can fly and crawl

    Colin Jeffrey
    26 Jan 2015 | 5:37 am
    Robot drones that can both fly and move about on land would vastly improve their usefulness by increasing the areas in which they could operate. Adding wheels of sufficient size to handle most terrains, however, would adversely increase both the weight and size of such a drone. Researchers at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Lausanne (EPFL), building on their earlier developments, have created a drone that uses wings incorporating movable tips, allowing it to both walk and fly...

You get advice from a therapist online, but you can’t see in their eyes that your story touches a nerve. You flirt online, but you can’t sneak a kiss.

Felix Salmon, senior editor at Fusion, said there was a consensus that global inequality is getting worse, fueling overriding pessimism at the gathering.

  • How Will Windows 10 Impact PCs and Tablets?

    Bob O'Donnell
    27 Jan 2015 | 1:00 am
    Much has been written about Microsoft’s Windows 10 announcement overall, as well as their recent earnings. One key issue that I haven’t seen discussed in great detail, however, is the real-world impact that Windows 10 will have on the PC and tablet markets. From my perspective, Windows 10 will likely have a very positive impact on the PC market, both consumer and commercial, and the forthcoming OS is likely to have more of an impact on tablets than Windows 8 ever did. For PCs, Windows 10 provides a much needed “fix” for Windows 8, at several levels. To start with (pardon the pun), the…

There were no smart phones and, while two way pagers and basic cell phones existed, the PC was the primary computer of this demographic. I was tasked with trying to understand the millennial generation because, depending on whose definition of millennials by year born, I am one — or at least, just missed the cut off.

    If you have ever seen a field with several mirrors pointing toward the sun you may be looking at a solar power system. These systems work to concentrate the sunlight to one area and use the heat to heat up the liquid that flows along the pipes. This system is called Parabolic-trough system. This type of system heats oil that is flowing through the pipe. The oil is hot and that is why it is used to boil water to power a steam generator which in turns powers electricity. The reason that this system works so well is because the U-shaped mirrors attracts and collects the suns heat which is then…

    It happens to you all the time. You're mid-sentence during a meeting with your boss, working on The New York Times' crossword puzzle, typing up an essay for grad school, or even talking to your mom on the phone — and the next word you're looking for just doesn't ... come. You know the word. You've used it before. Maybe you remember the letter it starts with or the syllabic rhythm when it leaves your mouth There's a scientific term for this totally common phenomenon, which we like to call a "brain fart." You're experiencing tip-of-the-tongue (TOT) syndrome, from the phrase "it's on the…

    An all-out blizzard has slammed the northeastern U.S. with a thick blanket of snow, and it just keeps getting worse. More than 5,500 flights have already been canceled. Several states have put in place travel bans for the sake of safety. Even major transit systems like the MTA, MBTA and Amtrak have suspended their service for Tuesday. This storm is no joke.

  • 'Miniature' boats race on Sydney Harbour in beautiful tilt-shift video

    Jenni Ryall
    27 Jan 2015 | 12:32 am
    A 23-second, tilt-shift, time-lapse clip, posted on YouTube channel Media 24h, shows Sydney ferries racing on the harbour. In the beautiful clip, the ferries appear more like children's toys in a bathtub, as they competed in the annual Ferryathon on Jan. 26. The tilt-shift effect seen in the video makes the objects appear "miniature," by using a lens that shifts the depth of field to a diagonal line instead of a straight horizontal plane from the camera. The race involves the fleet of Sydney ferries going head-to-head on Sydney's iconic harbour from Circular Quay to Shark Island and back to…

  • Lagunitas Drops Trademark Suit Against Sierra Nevada After Public Backlash

    Here we almost went again. The craft beer space was known for quite a while for its congenial attitude when it came to competitors. That seems to have shifted a bit in the past few years, with all kinds of silly intellectual property disputes arising among breweries. Trademark claims seem to be the issue du jour, not surprisingly, though you'd think with the common public response being backlash this trend would have ceased already. It seems the lesson still needs to be taught, however, even amongst some of the larger craft breweries with some of the best reputations. Lagunitas, for instance,…

    It can be annoying when you can't get a song out of your head, but there are some strategies for doing so. Apparently, working on some puzzles can help by engaging your working memory and shutting out the "Shake It Off" lyrics. These earworms have a tendency to come back (and even invade our visual memes), but if you recognize that these songs are all constructed in a similar way, maybe you can fend them off. Here are just some examples. Maybe you've heard that joke "What do you get when you play country music backwards?" A bunch of country music songs are about the same topics, but they also…
  • Australia Ratings Board Bans Hotline Miami 2; Developers Tell Australians To 'Just Pirate It'

    Tim Cushing
    26 Jan 2015 | 4:14 pm
    In 2013, Australia boldly moved into the 20th century by finally allowing games targeted at gamers above the age of 15 (which still makes up a majority of gamers, despite the birth rate and the rise of mobile gaming) to reach their intended audience. Even with the new rating (15+), game developers still found themselves altering games to avoid the government's infantilizing banhammer. The developers behind Hotline Miami 2 (Devolver Digital), the sequel to the Drive-inspired, synth-drenched, retro ode to twin-stick, top-down ultraviolence, is the latest to have a game banned in a country that…

    You'll recall that the CTIA recently argued that the wireless industry doesn't need to be governed by net neutrality rules (or any rules, really) because it's a sector that's just so gosh-darned competitive. And while it's true T-Mobile has been shaking things up of late (thanks in part to regulators blocking the AT&T acquisition), the market's big four players continue to make it clear that once you dig past a number of largely cosmetic promotions, the sector still isn't really all that competitive. That's especially true when it comes to seriously competing on price, something all four…

    3 Jan 2015 | 5:38 pm
    Over the past year I’ve run over 800 miles and raced three half marathons, three challenging trail races over 11 miles long and in several 5ks. I also dedicated a lot of training time to increasing my climbing and logged over 24,000 feet in elevation gain. I trained on several mountain ranges in Southern California and feel like I can knock out a half marathon run at any time, so I did. It’s been a couple of weeks since running the Santa To The Sea Half Marathon in Oxnard on Dec. 18. I was excited to tackle the course and try to set a PR for the half. The flat as a pancake course…

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.

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…

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…

We have also seen instances where smartphones with lithium-ion batteries explode and set fire to their surroundings.The good news is that this is an aspect that researchers are looking at and according to a group of researchers at the University of Michigan, they seem rather optimistic that they have found a potential solution to the problem in the form of Kevlar. What they have done…
  • Vodafone Spain Begins Blocking Access To The Pirate Bay

    Most countries and governments look upon piracy in a negative light, and understandably so. However some countries have been rather relaxed in terms of actually blocking access to piracy websites, while others have been rather strict. Unfortunately for our readers in Spain, it seems that the government is stepping up their efforts to crackdown on piracy.According to reports, it seems that local ISP Vodafone has begun to block and redirect users trying to access The Pirate Bay’s website. Users are reporting that instead of landing on The Pirate Bay’s website, they are instead redirected to…

    When The Pirate Bay was taken offline due to the Swedish police raid, many mirror and alternative websites popped up as a result. One of those websites called themselves the Old Pirate Bay and is a website started by the team at isoHunt. It basically offered users a similar feel to The Pirate Bay, except with some slight improvements.That being said with hints that the original Pirate Bay will be making a comeback on the 1st of February, it would be safe to assume that all these websites that popped up in its absence would soon start to see a drop in visitors, but the team at isoHunt are…
  • OftenType iOS Keyboard Wants To Help Make Your Typing More Efficient

    Tyler Lee
    27 Jan 2015 | 2:39 am
    One of the more awesome new features that Apple brought to the table with iOS 8 is the ability for users to download custom keyboards. This means that if you don’t like the default iOS keyboard, you’re more than welcome to download alternatives like Fleksy, SwiftKey, and so on, but if you’re looking for something even less conventional, then OftenType could be a keyboard worth checking out.So what is OftenType? Basically it is a keyboard for iOS that wants to help you save time by offering up buttons and keys for words/phrases that you normally type. For example if you fill up a lot of…
  • Former Opera CEO Launches Vivaldi Browser, Targets The Power User

    Tyler Lee

    There are multiple browsers available at the moment for computers to choose from. For example you have Internet Explorer, Firefox, Chrome, Opera, and these are just some of the more well-known ones. However it looks like we can soon add another challenger to that list in the form of Vivaldi.Vivaldi is a new browser that made its debut today. Now if you’re wondering if Vivaldi has the chops to take on the big boys, it should be noted that the company behind the browser was Opera’s former CEO, Jon S. von Tetzchner. However unlike most browsers which target the more mainstream user, Vivaldi…

  • LG ‘introduces’ Lollipop for US G3, the ball is in the carriers’ court now

    Adrian Diaconescu
    26 Jan 2015 | 1:00 pm
    American carriers are notoriously lethargic with software updates for even the greatest Android gadgets, but sometimes, device manufacturers don’t back them up very fast either. In LG G3’s case however, if Verizon, AT&T, Sprint and T-Mobile take more than a month or so starting today to roll Lollipop out, users will put the blame entirely on them. That’s because LG has been incredibly quick to bump up the… Continue reading LG ‘introduces’ Lollipop for US G3, the ball is in the carriers’ court now Related posts: LG graces Korean G2 with official Android 5.0…

Technology has improved, and consumers, ever-wanting of more, are fueling demands for studio-quality sound in portable form.

    26 Jan 2015 | 12:13 pm
    Looking back, Microsoft might have great trouble justifying Surface 2’s release. The second-gen Windows RT tablet followed in the footsteps of a poorly received OG, and while it certainly fixed a number of Surface flaws, it flopped almost as hard as its predecessor at the box-office. Never capable of delivering productivity on-par with full Windows-powered machines, the Surface RT and Surface 2 won’t be left behind entirely once Win 10… Continue reading The end is near for Microsoft Surface tablets with Windows RT… probably Related posts: Best Buy to Offer Microsoft Surface RT…

  • Debian Forked: All for Devuan and Devuan for All?

    Jack M. Germain
    26 Jan 2015 | 3:53 pm
    A group of developers made good on their threats to fork Debian Linux late last year, after the community's leadership voted to replace sysvinit with systemd, making systemd the default init boot process. The Debian Technical Committee's decision spurred several key Debian developers and project maintainers to resign. Some of them formed a new community dedicated to developing a forked Debian Linux distro called "Devuan," pronounced "DevOne." The split is largely philosophical.

    26 Jan 2015 | 9:00 am
    The humanoid Atlas robot made by Google company Boston Dynamics has gotten an overhaul to be stronger, lighter and more independent, and to be able to function for one hour of mixed-mission operations. Designed by the United States Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, it stands six feet two inches tall. Its weight was trimmed from 330 to 254 pounds through replacing everything but the lower legs and feet and using lighter materials -- despite including an onboard 3.7 kWh Li-Ion battery pack and a variable-pressure pump.
  • Microsoft's Windows Reboot Could Be Legendary

    Rob Enderle
    26 Jan 2015 | 6:52 am
    I was one of the launch analysts for Windows 95, and the launch of that product is widely held -- including by Bill Gates -- as the company's pinnacle. No launch before or since ever came close to that launch, and I remain amazed that no one, including Apple or Microsoft, has ever really attempted to duplicate that effort. Windows 10 has the potential to be even greater than Windows 95 -- but potential alone won't a legendary product make. It'll come down to execution, not just on the product, but on the launch itself.

    Microsoft had a major surprise up its sleeve for those awaiting details about the Windows 10 launch: its holographic headset, HoloLens. Billed as a new way to interact with technology and the world around us at once, it overlays holograms onto what wearers see in front of them. They might, for instance, play a version of Minecraft that's constructed across a kitchen table and chairs, or have a Skype conversation with a screen seemingly hovering in front of them as they stroll across the floor. It is blisteringly impressive.
  • Zenwalk Linux - A Walk on the Quirky Side

    Jack M. Germain
    23 Jan 2015 | 3:51 pm
    The developmental path and sketchy developer website may cast an unfavorable impression about Zenwalk's trustworthiness as a serious computing platform. The ho-hum impression when first running the live edition does little to encourage users to take this Linux OS for a stroll. Zenwalk Linux becomes a bit more impressive once you get beyond the awkward first-time experience, but it comes with a number of problems that might be prohibitive for a new user looking for an all-purpose Linux OS.

    Bill Brenner

    When it comes to patching vulnerabilities, Oracle does nothing small. In its latest quarterly CPU (Critical Patch Update), the database giant hands its customers 169 new security fixes affecting many products. The full patch matrix is here. SiliconANGLE offers a decent analysis of the vulnerabilities and patches. From Maria Deutscher’s report: One flaw that drew an outsized amount of attention is a misconfiguration affecting the enterprise technology stalwart’s popular E-Business Suite, which “gobsmacked” its discoverer, in his own words.

    Last week I wrote about the new anti-hacking laws President Obama plans to float in his State of the Union address and how the proposals are Draconian at best. I noted that it’s in our power to educate the masses and stop this thing before it becomes law. To that end, I have something to share with you. Derek Watson — better known in the security community as Blak Dayz (blakdayz) — posted the following call to action: Hackers. It’s time to UNITE. With these new proposed laws, they are literally coming for our freedom. If you are interested in joining in a fast…

  • Bad Anti-Hacking Laws: We Can Educate the Public

    Bill Brenner
    15 Jan 2015 | 2:19 pm
    There’s much alarm in the security community over new anti-hacking laws President Obama plans to float in his State of the Union address next week. The alarm is justified. What he proposes, as my friend Rob Graham (@ErrataRob) wrote in this important post, “are blunt political solutions which reflect no technical understanding of the problem.” Obama’s proposed anti-hacking laws are designed to arm companies with legal protections for sharing information with each other and the government about hacking threats. The President believes it’s necessary to help prevent…

    Bill Brenner
    9 Jan 2015 | 5:22 am
    For the last few years I’ve been praising Microsoft for taking great strides to improve security. This morning, I’m tempted to take it all back. For the last decade, Microsoft has issued advance notifications the Thursday before each security patch release. It’s been a valuable service, helping IT security practitioners to be better prepared. Yesterday, the software giant announced it was ending the service, claiming that not enough people are using it. It’s a bad move that comes on the heels of other bad moves, which includes slashing a lot of good security talent in…

Everyone who was anyone was on it, teens and 20-somethings were obsessively uploading photos, updating all of their friends about the minutiae of their lives and frantically ‘friending’ everyone they came across. But fast-forward to 2015 and the social network seems to have a very different kind of clientele.

The news comes via Slashgear, which reports that a placeholder has been spotted in the Dutch Vodafone website’s source code: Hidden from public view, but ready to be set live as soon as Samsung announces the phone. The phone is expected to be coming in two guises: one with a normal, flat screen, and the other with curves on either side (a bit like the Galaxy Note Edge). Whilst we’ve always expected the S6 to be called…
  • Is it worth getting a curved TV?

    Stuart O'Connor
    27 Jan 2015 | 2:07 am
    Television began life as a big wooden box in the corner of the room with a convex screen (powered by a cathode ray tube) that brought black-and-white programmes into the home. Then came colour. Then the CRT screens gave way to flat plasma, LED and LCD televisions. And we even have 3D TVs. Now, it seems, the flat screens are going curved again – this time concave rather than convex, which means that the screen curves gently towards you, not away from you. But are they any better than the high-definition flat screens that we have all come to know and love? As with a lot of technology in…

And this is why the 610 and the iPhone 5C make for a good battle. Screen The iPhone 5C has a 4″ screen running at 640×1136 (326ppi), whereas the Desire 610 has a larger 4.7″ screen running at a lower resolution: 540×960 (324ppi).

This should clear up most SSL errors for you, and if you really, really care about a direct SSL connection to this site, I trust your ability to securely…

    I am far from the first to compare digital security practices to safer sex practices. Heck, you can even see a rap career blooming as Jillian York and Jacob Appelbaum suggest that it's time that we "talk about P-G-P" at re:publica. Talking about software and trust gets both very boring and very depressing quickly. Let's instead move on to the juicy sex-ed part! A quick disclaimer: First, apologies for the at-times male and/or heteronormative point of view; I'd welcome more inclusive language, especially around the HTTPS section. Second, I am unabashedly pro-Tor, a user of the tor network, and…
  • Do you trust your tools?

    19 Sep 2014 | 7:05 am
    There's a budding conversation on "trust" over in the twitterverse. I began a draft post a while back that compared Tor (the amazing privacy and anti-censorship network and all privacy-protecting software to condoms. More on that soon, but let's actually talk about how you might have trust in a software project, using Tor as an example. Tor has been in the news recently, and I've had a ton of people ask me about how safe it is to use, so I figured one click-bait headline is as good as another in having an open and honest discussion about Tor. First, let's be transparent. Tor - not unlike the…

    There's a point here about heartbleed and security — I promise. Keep with me. As I am wont to once the weather finally begins to coöperate, I've been trying a few new things out on the grill. When I'm in this exploratory phase, I love digging through the infinitely interesting BBQ blogs of the Internet - they're full of hard-won knowledge about fire and smoke, but often lack a certain level of technical polish. Case in point, my reference blog for this week's experiment was a well-seasoned old blog, but they'd lost every single comment from years of discussions. Why? No technical glitch,…

Input from fellow Texans significantly informs my decision-making and empowers me to better represent the state. During my time in the Senate, I have consistently reiterated my support of programs that can detect impending threats to our homeland or diplomatic and military facilities abroad.

    During a Reddit AMA earlier this week, Elon Musk said he hopes to announce his Mars transport system plans. As you’d expect, I’m incredibly excited about this. We are still obviously a long ways away from the first manned mission to Mars, but there is finally substantive work being done to get us there. Of course, NASA announced late last year that the Orion space capsule is a part of their plan toward a manned mission to Mars, which is terribly exciting. Humans conducting experiments on Mars and exploring the planet is something I hope to see before I die. But Musk and SpaceX, I…

    After China placed limitations on candidates for Hong Kong’s city leader, Hong Kong erupted in protest. This, of course, presents a large challenge to Xi Jinping and the PRC. Edward Wong and Chris Buckley write for the Times: China’s Communist Party has ample experience extinguishing unrest. For years it has used a deft mix of censorship, arrests, armed force and, increasingly, money, to repress or soften calls for political change. But as he faces massive street demonstrations in Hong Kong pressing for more democracy in the territory, the toolbox of President Xi Jinping of China…

Browsing the web, Twitter, Instagram, Snapchat, watching video, reading, messaging—all require focus on a screen that fills your vision, your primary attention, and generally some kind of interaction. Everything else, too, is always a home button or notification-tap away at all times. Is that a shock when the phone is the single gateway to nearly everything?

    Bing Pulse, the real-time viewer polling and feedback tool from Bing, is going to be part of CNN and MSNBC’s coverage of the upcoming State of the Union address by United States President Mr Barack Obama. The way it worked in the past is analysts and pundits across networks and publications would try to make sense of the variety of feedback channels they get their data from, and then try to provide the updates to the viewers. Naturally that took some time and the final analyses would take hours and days, if not weeks. Instead, Bing Pulse will enable MSNBC and CNN to provide real-time…

    Towards the end of 2014, it was reported that Samsung Display aims to lower the cost of their OLED displays, to be more competitive with LCDs (some suggested that Samsung aims to bring small-sized OLED cost below that of competing LCDs).Now Digitimes reports that according to its sources Samsung indeed aims to close the gap between OLED and LCD pricing during 2015. In 2013 an AMOLED panel used to cost about $10-15 more than a competing LCD (they probably mean a 4" - 5" panel). In 2014 this shrunk to only $5.Read more about Samsung Display aims to reach OLED-LCD cost parity in 2015

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.

    Advanced Micro Devices and NVIDIA may be the ones that create the graphics processing units (GPUs) and the basic design for a graphics card, but it's ultimately their OEMs that sell the products. Owing to large shipments of cards from both suppliers, the world's best-known vendors of video cards are ASUS, Gigabyte and Micro-Star International. Both AMD and NVIDIA have exclusive partners, OEMs that for one reason or another only deal with one or the other. Contract exclusivity clauses are har... (read more)

  • To All High School Students: Coding Starts Now

    26 Jan 2015 | 1:09 pm
    What is the surest path to getting a secure and top paying job after university? Computer science. Unfortunately, enrollment in computer science programs at colleges and universities remains low, as very few high school students make the choice to enter the field. In 2013, graduates of the University of Windsor’s Computer Science program had a 100% job placement rate, but the school shared that still not enough students were entering the program. Director of Computer Science at University of Windsor says some of this low enrollment comes from government cutbacks that have been impacting…

  • 10 Musts of Using Instagram [Infographic]

    Jeremy Smith
    26 Jan 2015 | 9:00 am
    Instagram for churches? Yes please! Something that drives me to a ministry more than anything is the ministry’s ability to show faces of congregation members and their families enjoying a service or how a ministry is impacting and serving in the community. Can you imagine the impact a great photo could have? It would tell the relief a family has because your church gave selflessly at a Fall Feed the Homeless drive. It could show that moment of joy after a baptism. And it should reveal what worship looks like on Sunday morning as congregation members praise God in service. All of these…

    As a blogger, the implicit trust of your readers is a precious commodity. That’s especially the case for your loyal readers, the people who follow your blog via email, RSS or other ways on a regular basis. Holding on to that trust that, honoring it even, is essential if you want to continue growing your blog. At the end of the day, it’s your long-term loyal readers who will spontaneously promote your blog after all, simply because you add value to their lives. But it’s easy to lose the trust your readers have placed in you. I’ve seen it happen with smaller blogs, but also with big,…

Basically it’s supposed to allow you to extend your current desktop screen to an iPad — just as if you had an extra monitor. Other apps already do this, but Duet’s claim to fame is it will extend your desktop in a way that’s lag free. So if you’re watching movies or animation and moving elements between monitors, you’ll not notice lag. Duet’s unique feature that allows this is that Duet connects to your Mac using the USB port and either 30 pin connector or Lightning connector. I’ve…

It will even warn you about weather conditions, stalled cars, potholes, and accidents. What concerns law enforcement is Waze's ability to tell drivers exactly where police are, though the app doesn't specify whether it's due to a speed trap or officers aiding in a traffic accident. Police say this feature has the potential to endanger officers, possibly putting them in harm's way of…

BMW invited the two to remix the '90s gem into a commercial promoting the i3 electric car, set to air during Sunday's big game. In the hilarious original video, the hosts are completely perplexed by the "@" symbol. Here's what Bryant said, verbatim: "I wasn't prepared to translate that. That little 'a' with a ring around it."

    Panos Economou may be only 14 but he already has grand plans for the future. One-half of the Greek team which soared to victory in the recent Kodu Kup Europe competition, Panos believes coding has the power to change the world for the better: “Our vision is to create something new which can help future generations.” Increasingly, it is those young people who fully understand the digital world around them who will be best placed to shape it. Providing them with the skills and training to do this is crucial, and it can set Europe’s youth up for a lifetime of success. Take Roxana Rugina,…

    At CES 2015 we had a chance to check out the Typo 2 iPhone 6 keyboard case. Here is what we think of the keyboard case: The quality of the case was build up to standard unlike some of its Japaneses competitors , but the physical attachment to the iPhone was not so secure it would be easy to disconnect the case from the iPhone simply by dropping the device it self , this is a big factor when thinking about rather or not to connect this keyboard case that enhances typing or a protective case that can protect the device it self. The key layout is a bit small which caused for unnecessary typos (…

    My 5 predictions for the tech world in 2015 and the next 5 years; Sensors, Indoor Location, Alternative networks, Wearable computers, the demise of cable TV. Billions of sensors will monitor everything, and become the next platform shift in computing. Your home, car, office, and even people will have special sensors that help us manage the complexities of life. Indoor Location and Positioning, enabled by Smartphones, will become a part of many existing apps, and enable new services.

    Indoor Location and Positioning technology is the Next Big Thing. It is bringing the power of GPS and Maps indoors. We spend most of our time indoors, working, shopping, eating, at the mall, at the office, on campus, etc. Apple and Google are competing on street maps, but are also working on Indoor Location.

    Indoor Location and Positioning will be huge! Apple recently acquired WifiSlam for its indoor mapping and positioning technology. Why? Because we spend most of our time indoors, working, shopping, eating, at the mall, at the office, on campus, etc.  Google already has Indoor Maps for many airports and shopping malls. The race is on. The explosion of Smartphones with built in sensors, accelerometer, gyro, wifi radios, and camera make indoor positioning possible.  GPS and Maps are great, but they only work outdoors and with clear line of sight to the sky.

Everyone is happy. But, the company left all that money on the table, the difference between the $12 IPO price and the $25 first day close. This can mean hundreds of millions of dollars for the company. Facebook optimized the value of the IPO to the company by pricing high, and brought in billions of dollars in cash. Facebook stock…

(The money will be going to support the families of those killed, though there is a bit of a sour note starting with people trying to sell copies on eBay) If the aim of the shootings was to cow Hebdo and its satire it has been a complete failure so far, and also far any attempt to further inflame France (if anything the UK media seems more cowed than the French).

One of the countries where that was observed some years ago is Norway. Now, a new report in Music Business Worldwide indicates that things are looking even better for the recorded music business there: A countrywide survey in December 2014 showed that just 4% of Norwegians under 30 years still used illegal file-sharing platforms to get hold of music.

That seems to have shifted a bit in the past few years, with all kinds of silly intellectual property disputes arising among breweries. Trademark claims seem to be the issue du jour, not surprisingly, though you'd think with the common public response being backlash this trend would have ceased already. It seems the lesson still needs to be taught, however, even amongst some of the larger craft breweries with some of the best reputations. Lagunitas, for instance,…

Apparently, working on some puzzles can help by engaging your working memory and shutting out the "Shake It Off" lyrics. These earworms have a tendency to come back (and even invade our visual memes), but if you recognize that these songs are all constructed in a similar way, maybe you can fend them off. Here are just some examples. Maybe you've heard that joke "What do you get when you play country music backwards?" A bunch of country music songs are about the same topics, but they also…
  • Australia Ratings Board Bans Hotline Miami 2; Developers Tell Australians To 'Just Pirate It'

    In 2013, Australia boldly moved into the 20th century by finally allowing games targeted at gamers above the age of 15 (which still makes up a majority of gamers, despite the birth rate and the rise of mobile gaming) to reach their intended audience. Even with the new rating (15+), game developers still found themselves altering games to avoid the government's infantilizing banhammer. The developers behind Hotline Miami 2 (Devolver Digital), the sequel to the Drive-inspired, synth-drenched, retro ode to twin-stick, top-down ultraviolence, is the latest to have a game banned in a country that…

And while it's true T-Mobile has been shaking things up of late (thanks in part to regulators blocking the AT&T acquisition), the market's big four players continue to make it clear that once you dig past a number of largely cosmetic promotions, the sector still isn't really all that competitive. That's especially true when it comes to seriously competing on price, something all four…

  • Ditched my Cintiq Companion and upgraded my Surface Pro 3

    C.K. Sample III
    25 Jan 2015 | 9:29 am
    So yesterday, I went to the Microsoft Store at the Domain, and traded in my just under a month old i5 128GB Surface Pro 3 for the top of the line i7 500GB model. I did this with funds I made from selling my Cintiq Companion this past week on Amazon Marketplace for ~$78 more net profit than I originally paid for it (thanks to getting it this summer when Wacom was running a summer ~$500 off sale + Cintiq Companion’s being hard to come by currently while everyone awaits the release of the newly announced Cintiq Companion 2). Aside: If you want to sell old gear fast at reasonable prices,…

    I’ve had advertisements on this site forever. I just removed them. There’s no point. In any case, if you like the things I tend to write and do and you want to motivate me to keep doing these things / do them more often, I set up a Patreon page where you can become a patron. Although, I must say, although I like the idea behind Patreon, I don’t like the execution much. It’s very inflexible. Why can’t I set up different types of patronage for different endeavors at different price points? Why is everything either recurring by month or recurring by thing created?

    As I tweeted earlier today, I’m now the answer to life, the universe, and everything years old. Kristin asked me if I felt older on the way to church this morning, and my reply was, “I feel like I’m learning new things recently.” This is my first birthday without a dad and it’s about 6 months since he passed. I was struck oddly today by the lack of him calling me up to sing the silly penny song that he’s sung to me every birthday that I can remember (counting pennies you receive for each year behind you). But beyond that small sadness, I’ve been…

    Thanks to my in-laws, Curt & Marian, I got a brand new Kindle Voyage (WiFi with Special Offers) for Christmas, and so far it’s been a great upgrade from the low end model Kindle that had replaced my Kindle Paperwhite that I broke over a year ago (flew out of my bag while I was slinging said bag into the trunk of my car; Kindle Paperwhite landing screen down on the parking lot pavement). The 300 dpi screen is definitely noticeably sharper than previous generations and the lighting has been improved since the Paperwhite came out. It’s now very even, with no noticeable dark…

    No more standing desk This is a brand new shot of my office at Chaotic Moon. The past year and a half, I’ve been working at a standing desk, but this morning I walked in, grabbed a free chair, removed the four screws from the legs of my desk that were holding it at standing height, and adjusted them down to a comfortable ergonomic height for me to work while seated. Why? Well, first off: there have been many positive side effects from working standing up over the past year and a half. All of the lower back issues that I had been having all but disappeared last year. My legs and ankles…

What we can expect is more protection in the form of MightyShell. Speck’s new line of cases feature the same dual-layer construction of the CandyShell cases, but are a little thicker and easier to grip. The inner silicone layer is now lined with concentric ridges that help absorb shocks, also helping up the…

  • PaperLike: 13.3

    26 Jan 2015 | 12:51 pm
    The PaperLike uses a 13.3-inch E Ink Fina screen that has a resolution of 1600 x 1200 (150 ppi). Fina is E Ink's glass-based display and is different from what's on the 13.3" Sony DPT-S1 PDF Reader, which has a flexible plastic-based screen. The interesting thing about the PaperLike is that it uses so little energy that it doesn't even need to be plugged into its own power source. It connects to a laptop or desktop computer simply with a USB cable, and it gets enough power through the USB to refresh the screen. This looks quite interesting in a cool-to-have sort of way.

Just plug it in, and you're playing a game in seconds. If you’ve ever used one, you have two men to thank: Wallace Kirschner and Lawrence Haskel, who invented the game cartridge 40 years ago while working at an obscure company and rebounding from a business failure. Once the pair's programmable system had been streamlined and turned into a commercial product - the Channel F console - by a team at pioneering electronics company…

I’ve never been good with dictation but think that it will be better than one-handed typing so this is a Sunday afternoon practice run. Welcome to the first ever hands-free Rexblog post.

    “Markets are conversations.” If you are an internet-marketing trivia master, you may recognize that quotation as Doc Searls’ prophetic observation that appeared 15 years ago as part of the Cluetrain Manifesto. Cluetrain began as a list of 95 theses posted on the website Cluetrain.com that captured the sentiments of Searls and three other tech-industry marketing veterans. The Cluetrain Manifesto quickly evolved into a best-selling book that provided many early online marketers with a foundation for understanding and predicting how buying and selling would change when buyers have…

    Previously (but I missed last year), I’ve listed some last minute Tennessee-related holiday gift ideas. This year, the emphasis is on food grown or produced (e.g. cooked, prepared, collected, etc.) in the state. (And for the few who may read this on Christmas Eve, I’ve even included a couple Tennessee-related products or distribution channels for the desperate.) These are all products (or collections of products) that can be purchased online, but you need to get your orders in early this week (by December 20) to beat shipping or delivery deadlines.

Three more have switched to developing for business, leaving behind consumer projects. Last year, I observed in a post–one that included an email exchange  with Don Norman of Nielson-Norman and author of The Design of Everyday Things–that I believed the product release of Google Glass was bungled by Google.

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. At least they didn’t claim it would be available next July. Related posts: The flying car I don’t expect to see anytime soon (but I keep…

I have redesigned and refactored it a few times, along the way evolving it to a place to support and house my passion projects: in-depth photo stories from my travels. These photo stories are the perfect coalescence of my passions: design, development, travel and photography. I've created three large photo story collections so far: Greece, France and Japan.

There was so much going on that it was a bit of sensory overload, much like walking down the Las Vegas strip for the first time. Google announced many welcomed Android improvements such as a battery saver mode and lock-screen notifications; something you'd previously need to use add-ons for as mentioned in Android is better. More uses of the Android operating system emerged: Android Wear, Android Auto and Android TV. A smartphone won't be the only thing that comes to…

    Last week Dropbox launched a new gallery app called Carousel. It's a focused app, only letting people view their photos stored on Dropbox1 and conveniently share them. There are a few interesting parts in the app but there is one piece I’d like to highlight: Swipe down to hide. This gesture doesn't delete your photo, it simply removes it from the gallery view. It's not a heavy action. There's no cognitive overhead, no thinking "wait, do I want this shot?" as there generally is when deleting items.

    A few weeks ago my DNS provider Zerigo sent an email stating that due to recent infrastructure upgrades they would need to raise their prices. For my meager DNS needs that ended up being a huge price hike: from $39 per year to $25 per month1. Prices were set to take effect a month later. I decided to put my current dev work — designing and building new photoblog functionality to showcase my Japan trip photos — on hold to move away from Zerigo. I chose to switch to AWS Route 53.

    When you join Twitter, it sets your profile picture as a colored egg but for people to take you seriously, you replace that egg with your face. This is the first rule of the Twitter book but some users aren’t paying attention. Maybe they are too lazy to change the avatar, maybe they want to stay anonymous or maybe they are bots and fake users created by spammers who “sell” Twitter followers. This week, I set out to count the number of eggs that follow me on Twitter and results were surprising. It turned that out of the 53k users who follow me, around 15% of the followers…

    Your mobile phone has a globally unique number associated with it, called the IMEI number, that uniquely identifies your device within the mobile network. If your phone gets lost or is stolen, you would need to provide this IMEI number to the law enforcement agencies and the telecom operator for them to blacklist your device and prevent anyone else from using your phone on their wireless network. As you probably know, it is relatively easy to find the IMEI number of your mobile phone. While there are apps that will help you retrieve this number with a tap, you don’t really need one.

    At the end of Microsoft’s earnings call Monday night, Microsoft chief executive Satya Nadella explained what made Windows unique. And he flubbed it. Or did he?  Microsoft exceeded analyst expectations for the fourth quarter of 2014, its second fiscal quarter of 2015. During most of the call, Nadella and chief financial officer Amy Cook focused on where Windows went wrong. They blamed a 25 percent decline in its Devices and Consumer Licensing unit on economic conditions in Japan and China, and the lull that followed a surge in PC buying as Microsoft ended support for Windows XP a year…

Each GPC contains four Streaming Multiprocessor (SM) units, each in turn housing 128 CUDA cores. The GTX 980, then has 16 SMs and 2,048 CUDA cores.

Musk, who himself has said to be a long time fan of the show, arrives in Springfield during the episode to help local utilities tycoon Montgomery Burns modernize the city’s power grid. He’s introduced to Burns as the man that’s helping revolutionize the auto industry, to which Burns says “Ah, Henry Ford, good to see you. You’re as healthy and vibrant as Detroit.” The project expands, and eventually Burns agrees to let Musk build a Hyperloop and other futuristic additions to…

    The Taiwan Institute of Economic Research (TIER) raised its projection for Taiwan’s economic growth in 2015 on Jan. 26. TIER, the Taipei-based private research organization, said that improving global economy and a better outlook on domestic consumption can be expected in Taiwan, due to plunging oil prices. TIER said that the nation’s GDP can be expected to grow 3.67% this year, up 0.19 percentage points over its previous forecast set in November. “The revision is primarily because of the recent decline in international crude oil prices, which could help boost Taiwan’s…

    Late last year I declared that the Netgear Trek300 was my new favorite travel router. (that was sooooo last year ) However, it didn’t take long for one of my readers to point me to an even smaller travel router with many of the same features as the Netgear at half the price. I like the HooToo TripMate Nano for many of the same reasons that I like the Netgear: Provides an 802.11n WiFi hotspot for all of your devices to connect to on the road.

    People in my immediate circle know that I enjoy a good cappuccino or latte. People even commented on my Starbucks card in the screenshot that I did in my Apple Pay review. However, when I moved last year the one thing I missed was having a Starbucks nearby. Yes there are other coffee shops in the area and probably even better coffee, but I just haven’t found one that I enjoy enough to make it a regular stop. My old Starbucks was “on the way” to a lot of things. I have looked at expresso makers in the past and for a good one they seemed very pricey and very complicated to…

    The Evangelist Marketing Institute -- Alex L. Goldfayn -- Techniques For Revenue Growth

  • Opening and Closing

    Alex Goldfayn
    26 Jan 2015 | 2:09 pm
    If you want to grow revenue, nothing will do so faster, easier and more dramatically than marketing. Marketing opens what sales closes. We must sell, and we must close. But we must constantly be opening new opportunities. We must consistently create new opportunities for our sales function. If all you do is close, eventually, you’re walled in, trapped, with no opportunities (for growth) in sight. Your pipeline will run dry. To open, we must systematically communicate our value to people who can buy it. That’s all marketing is. To open, to grow, me must market.   The…
  • Market Especially to Existing Customers

    Alex Goldfayn
    19 Jan 2015 | 4:31 pm
    We must market to existing customers as much as we market to prospects.There are two big reasons for this: 1. The competition is calling on them aggressively. Every time they say “no” to them, they make a conscious decision to say with you. We must help them make this decision, again and again, by clearly explaining all of the wonderful things we do for them. Right now, they probably don’t know about everything you do so well for them. 2. Your customers do not know about all of the products and services they can buy from you. When you do not market to your existing…

    Alex Goldfayn
    12 Jan 2015 | 2:48 pm
    Unlike your products and services, which need to be precise and exact, your marketing needs only to be helpful. I heard Alan Weiss say this once, and it has stuck with me ever since: In marketing, quantity trumps quality. The more that people hear from us, the more they will buy from us. So stop trying to make it perfect. Stop putting it off. Write or record something helpful to your customers and prospects, and send it to them. Then do it again. And again. Ready? FIRE! Then aim, assess and adjust. If it’s working, double down on it. If it’s not working, or you don’t like…

This is something that you think would be really smart to do, something that took up a lot of your psychic energy, but something you did execute. Got it? Write down at your desk. Now, write down the first three action required to put it into motion. I want three activities that take 15 minutes or less. Do one today, one tomorrow, and one Wednesday.

  • Revenue Resolutions

    Alex Goldfayn
    29 Dec 2014 | 1:50 pm
    Resolutions for dramatic revenue growth in 2015 — for you, your colleagues and your staff: 1. Each day I will communicate my value to at least one customer or prospect who can buy from me — in person, on the phone, or least preferably, via a personal email. 2. I will grow my company’s list of customers and prospects, because if my list isn’t growing, my revenue likely isn’t either. 3. I resolve to regularly mail or e-mail value to my growing list. My communications will focus on improving the lives and companies of my readers, not selling, pitching or promoting.

    The long list of alleged victims of comedian Bill Cosby has another entry. In an emotional piece on The Huffington Post, Cindra Ladd, a former entertainment executive revealed how Cosby drugged and raped her back in 1969, when she was only 21 years old. Ladd is married to Academy Award-winning producer Alan Ladd Jr., and it took her decades to finally reveal the ordeal to her husband. Ladd wrote about the beginnings of her relationship with the then 32-year-old comedian. Already an internationally known comedian during that time, Ladd was lured to Cosby’s charm.

    Regarded as one of the best smartphones of the year last year, both, the first and the second generation of the Motorola Moto G have started receiving the Android 5.0.2 update to Lollipop. It was a bit strange given Motorola’s consistency of rolling down updates that this one took so long for Motorola to process, but the good news is that it is finally here after almost a month of the official Android Lollipop update coming out. The second generation of the Motorola Moto G had received the update to Lollipop fairly early-ish around last month only, but the first generation, which was…

The dongle was announced at last year’s Google I/O and since then it has become a bit of a must have for those who are into heavy media consumption over Wifi. The dongle was initially made available only in the United States and later across Europe, yet the availability in India has always been through third party vendors such as Amazon and Snapdeal.

Given that it is clear that HTC wants to keep the time between the announcement of the device and the time when it goes on sale relatively minimal, it is expected that from now to the launch of the device plenty of images will surface of the phone that is one of the most eagerly anticipated devices of the year 2015. After the success of the HTC M7 and M8, the M9 is the device that HTC would be expecting to lift them into green from the red that has hurt them in the years gone by. It looks like from the outside…

    Whatsapp has become the standard communication platform today among just about everybody. With the growing penetration of smartphones, it is little surprise that just about everyone is on Whatsapp and the number of text messages being sent have declined rapidly. In fact, other than brief client interactions, I barely remember when was the last time I sent a text message to anybody to have a conversation.

Windows 10 brings the Windows experience that we have grown accustomed to in the long years gone by back as all the metro stuff can now be totally put to one side. Another impressive feature of Windows 10 is app compatibility as from now on, the developers will only have to develop an application for either the desktop, tablet or phone and it will be cross compatible. As a result we are moving towards a unified App store too. made sure to let everyone know that it is selling Windows as a…

    It was rumored during the production of Qualcomm’s flagship chips that there was a possibility that the company would be delaying the supply of its Snapdragon 810 chipset due to overheating and GPU driver issues. While several OEMs (original equipment manufacturers) have not prevented themselves from assimilating Qualcomm’s latest offering to their devices, such as LG’s G Flex 2 and Xiaomi’s recently announced flagship phone, the Mi Note Pro, Samsung seems to be having a hard time being convinced regarding the reliability of the company’s chip.

    Both the GTX 980 and GTX 970 are graphical powerhouses when it comes to gaming performance. However, since the GTX 980 is priced at $200 more than its lower performing brother, it is no question that gamers will purchase the GTX 970 in order to a sacrifice a fraction of the performance but save tons of money in the process. However, right now, it looks like saving the $200 and purchasing the GTX 970 would have cost gamers a lot more, thanks to a new memory bug that has been plaguing the GTX 970. Extremetech was kind enough to explain what kind of problems GTX 970 owners would be suffering…

Trends in digital advertising feel like an endless agony to me. To sum up: there is no sign of improvement on the performance side; a growing percentage of ads are sold in bulk; click-fraud and user rejection are on the rise, all resulting in ceaseless deflation. Call it the J-Curve of digital advertising, as it will get worse before it gets better (it must – and it will). Here is…

For the past six months or so, I’ve become increasingly concerned about the quality of Apple software. From the painful gestation of OS X 10.10 (Yosemite) with its damaged iWork apps, to the chaotic iOS 8 launch, iCloud glitches, and the trouble with Continuity, I’ve gotten a bad feeling about Apple’s software quality management. “It Just Works”, the company’s pleasant-sounding motto, became an easy target,…

  • Creating a Windows Cluster: Part 6 – Creating a Network Load Balancing Cluster

    John DeVito
    26 Jan 2015 | 1:30 am
    I have a moment to get the final post of this series finished (see my author page for parts 1-5).  We went through the basic process of creating Windows Failover Clusters and adding SQL or other Generic Services to a Windows Failover Cluster.  Everything that we did in the series so far was done in a lab environment as it was being written, and all of the screenshots have been from those exercises. This final installment will be no different. Everything presented in this installment is out of the lab and has been built just as it is described.  The Windows Failover Cluster is useful for…
  • Write code that matters

    As a programmer, how do you measure you productivity? What kinds of tools do you have to determine project progress? Are you using story points? Is it the number of stories delivered in a certain time span? Do you track your progress with burn-down charts? When you think about a successful working day, one of those days where you come home to your partner and say it has been really productive, what happened that day? For me it is very simple. I measure my productivity in code. Thus a really productive day is a day where I have written and tested a good amount of code. Or even more specific…

    Did you know that, according to a paper from the Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS), the vast majority of successful security breaches to corporate networks are made using basic techniques, and that by implementing just four critical security controls you could remove 85 to 90% of threats? These four controls have been cut down from a list of 35 that a branch of the Australian government called the Defence Signals Doctorate put together based on their analysis of the cyber-attacks they were subject to. The four controls are: Regular Operating System Patching Regular…

    Over my Christmas holiday vacation I visited a coal mining museum with my family and much of what we learned in that mine, nearly 800 feet under the ground are applicable to everyday life and how we are in constant strive to improve. The examples that I cite are the machines that were designed in Germany and in the USA during the 20th century to automate not only the drilling of the coal from the bed but also in the extraction of the mined coal in readiness for selling on. Back in in 19th century this whole process was the role for many families, from the parents who would be deep in the mine…

A simple issue is if you have concurrency on an object which exposes a Dictionary<string,string> from where you get exceptions back if concurrent writers add the same data to it. You would then either need to coordinate the writers or use a different dictionary which allows concurrent adds. As it turns out ConcurrentDictionary is just the collection you were…

Anything I write to run in a browser will be runnable on the server as well. Easy! Well... not so much. The issues I came across boiled down to the way each JavaScript environment expects code to be organised. TypeScript's abstractions actually made…

  • Not all code is created equal

    16 Jan 2015 | 12:57 pm
    It should be no surprise that I am a supporter of the GPL licence for software. Today I would like to apologise to developers of javascript and icon libraries that I have unknowingly ripped off and defrauded. When I download an extension licensed as GPL I know that I am allowed to use that software how and where I want. However many extensions use libraries written by others and not all libraries are created equally. Unless I look at the raw files outside of Joomla it is often impossible for me to know what libraries are being used. Do you ever look? You should! I am not talking about "is it…

    We all know that size really does matter no matter what some nice people might tell you but does length matter as well? There is no point in writing great content if nobody will read it so length does matter - line length that is - what else did you think I was talking about. Too short If the length of the line too short then as a reader your eyes will be travelling left and right so often that it breaks the reading flow. Speed readers and content scanners also find that they are starting the next line before finishing the first and as a result may miss important content or misunderstand the…
  • Programming Joomla Plugins - I am not a developer

    Earlier this year Jisse asked if I was prepared to review the book he was writing on Joomla plugins. Proof reading is something that strangely I enjoy doing even if it is quite a slow and tedious task. However I did warn Jisse that I wouldn't be able to review anything other than the language as "I am not a developer". I have always known that plugins are one of the most powerful features of Joomla but as "I am not a developer" I have always had to rely on plugins published on the JED or pay someone to develop them for me. After reading the book I have surprised myself by being able to…

    Risk management has been around for a long time.  Financial managers run risk assessments for nearly all business models, and the idea of risk carries nearly as many definitions as the Internet.  However, for IT managers and IT professionals, risk management still frequently takes a far lower priority that other operations  and support activities. For IT managers a good, simple definition for RISK may be from the Open FAIR model which states: “Risk is defined as the probable frequency and magnitude of future loss”   (Open FAIR) Risk management should follow a structured process…

New cable development, including Arctic Fiber, Trident, SEA-US, and APX-E have sparked a lot of interest.  One…

While very few of the pitches received a strong, positive response, I recall one young guy who…

At the time, there was a lack of mainstream attention to the issues of privacy by the media and a lack of understanding of the issues and implications we all face in the digital world. As tech veterans of long standing, we have seen our world transformed for better and for worse by our industry. Much of the “worst” we chronicled in our book and at the time its release, many…

As we stated in a previous post: “Data, without the proper use of analytics, is meaningless. If data is the new oil, think of analytics as the oil drills—you need both to be successful.” Of course, getting to “success” is not easy as anyone involved in an analytics project will tell you. This series walks you through our methodology on what it takes—from inception to proof of concept to implementation and deployment—to navigate project pitfalls.

Here’s our take: Getting the most value out of your data can make you better at what you do as well as enable you to do more with what you have. In other words, there’s unrealized value in those data silos that all companies have. But make no mistake: the road to realizing data value is paved with good intentions and often times, poor execution and results. Today,…

    admin
    9 Jan 2015 | 3:21 pm
    Flash technology has proven to be a disruptive force in the storage marketplace. Server and network performance gains over the last decade have been substantial, but the hard drive performance needle has hardly moved. This situation has resulted in server utilization being reduced while waiting on storage input output (I/O) operations to be completed. Server virtualization has further contributed to this situation. Server virtualization has been deployed in most enterprises and has delivered great benefits, including environmental and footprint savings, more efficient server utilization, and…

    Reflecting on my earlier career in IT management, I have to confess to a level of astonishment at how naïve IT administrative practices were just a decade or two ago. Failure events were common, and most organizations just accepted as immutable fact the reality of systemic firefighting. IT services critical to business operations were all too often held together with little more than a hope and a prayer. Sure, my colleagues and I were acutely aware of the importance of performing “root cause analysis” and implementing proactive management practices, but who had the time for that? The…

    When I started out in security, only very large organizations with a mature set of business processes dared to talk about implementing some form of governance, risk, and compliance (GRC) or enterprise program (e-GRC). They generally did it in an attempt to get ISO or similar certification, or to “move their programs to the next level,” and some, I think, attempted it just to prove they did it. Many of those efforts were monumental, costing millions of dollars and taking years to complete. However, a significant number seemed to end in compromise, yielding a smaller end result or totally…

And if you scratch you head an think: “What the heck was I thinking?”, you have definitely done it wrong. But what have gone wrong?

  • How to use custom fonts in Android apps (and not get fat)

    Daniel Dekański
    1 Aug 2014 | 3:52 am
    Fonts have always been a vital part of brand identity and UI design. With the development of modern Web standards it has become easy to implement customized fonts in websites, but native mobile apps somehow still lag behind in this area. Platform guides warn us against unleashing our creativity in that aspect and state that the built-in fonts have been optimized for memory and performance constraints of mobile devices. I think today, with more and more horse power under the hood of our latest mobile gadgets, we should not limit ourselves to the modest assortment of default typefaces. Going…

  • Is Mobile SEO on Your To-Do List? Here’s Why It Needs to Be

    Andre Sólo
    27 Jan 2015 | 1:15 am
    We all know what a big difference SEO makes in visibility, traffic and ultimately conversions. For many companies, SEO has become even more important than online advertising. But does your SEO strategy target users on mobile devices, or is it stuck in the desktop past? Of course, not all users are on mobile, and those who are have many ways to find you besides just search. We’ve been hearing for years how mobile is the next big thing, but many businesses have told themselves it’s only a small portion of traffic or that mobile is all about apps, not search. It looks like that…
  • Should Europe Regulate American Search Results?

    Andre Sólo
    26 Jan 2015 | 12:14 pm
    Google has drawn a line in the sand with the EU, at least for the time being. Last year European Union courts established a “right to be forgotten,” effectively bolstering their citizens’ privacy rights. Under that policy, citizens and residents of 32 European countries can request to have inaccurate or inappropriate information about them removed from search results. Google created a system for requesting removals and it seemed to be working fine. But now European regulators want to go a step further—a step all the way across the pond. Google has been removing pages…
  • How to Optimize for Different Branches of a Chain

    Andre Sólo
    23 Jan 2015 | 12:49 am
    Rachel Lindteigen recently penned a great piece on how to manage SEO for different local branches of a franchise. This presents a real problem for SEO because there are often individual websites, or pages on a single domain, for each location. They all represent the same brand and try to rank for the same keywords—often in very nearby geographic areas. We’ve found that different locations of any chain business can have similar problems, even if they’re not actually franchised. So how do you get them all to rank without cannibalizing each other? Rachel offers a few…

    Andre Sólo
    22 Jan 2015 | 1:05 am
    As several media outlets have reported, Google just made a seemingly small but very significant change to how companies show up in its search results. When you search for a brand by name, the “knowledge graph” beside the results will now display the company’s social media accounts, making it easy to click through to any of them. (This isn’t automatic for all businesses, however; we’ll tell you how to get yours included below.) This is quite a change for Google. Previously the search engine only showed a link to a brand’s G+ page, which made a certain kind…
  • No More Shared Ads: Good or Bad?

    Andre Sólo
    21 Jan 2015 | 1:15 am
    If you’re a regular user of Google AdWords, chances are good that you have plenty of ads you use on an ongoing basis—both as-is and as templates for new campaigns, split tests or special promotions. And if you do a lot of that kind of templating then you’ve probably been saving them in AdWords’ Shared Library. But that option is going away. Google made the announcement just a few days ago, and set the deadline for killing Shared Ads as February 11. That gives users just a few scant weeks to figure out how they’re managing their campaigns going forward. Understandably, the…

On this matter, the other days I was browsing through some reviews to find out more about my latest favorite game, Dark Souls 2 which by the way, it rocks. But, I'm not making video games reviews here. The thing is that while checking the Gamespot review, I noticed a very nice and original loader somehow inspired by the above tagline.

    Kim Kardashian West is the star of T-Mobile’s Super Bowl ad, which the brand released online Monday ahead of the big game this weekend. The 30-second spot sees Kim “Kardashian West, Famous Person” take on a PSA-style of delivery to explain how each month millions of gigs of data are “tragically” taken back from consumers by wireless companies.

Unfortunately, Firefox wasn’t happy with Maxis, because I got the following screen: Firefox is the first of the mainstream browsers to end support of SSLv3, ever since Poodle was published. For those of you who aren’t keeping tabs of security issues–Poodle was a big vulnerability discovered in the 2nd half of 2014, that affected the SSLv3 protocol. The only fix for Poodle was to completely stop using SSLv3 altogether, not a bad idea, since the protocol itself is nearly 18 years old. In other…

  • Best Free Public DNS Servers

    Aseem Kishore
    22 Jan 2015 | 11:15 pm
    Looking to switch from your ISP DNS to another provider? I was surprised to find out that using a free public DNS server from a reputable company was far better than using my local ISP DNS, especially when travelling in foreign countries. I was recently in India and was getting very frustrated with the constant Webpage cannot load errors followed by the website loading 5 seconds later. I kept seeing the DNS lookup failed message, so I figured let me try another DNS provider and that made an absolute world of difference. There are a bunch of public DNS servers you can use, but I won’t…
  • How to Change the File Type Icon in Windows

    Aseem Kishore
    22 Jan 2015 | 12:37 am
    If you have a file on your computer with a non-recognizable extension, then Windows will simply assign that file a generic file icon. If you work in a corporate environment, this can happen all the time with custom software applications using proprietary formats. Even if you are a home user, it might be worth your time to change the default icon that is assigned for a text document or for all PDF documents, etc. This tip is really just for customizing the look and feel of Windows to your liking. In Windows XP, changing a file type’s icon was very simple and could be done via Windows…
  • How to Remotely Shutdown or Restart a Windows Computer

    Aseem Kishore
    21 Jan 2015 | 3:06 am
    This article will show you how to use the remote shutdown command tool in Windows to remotely shutdown or restart a local or networked computer. This can be very useful sometimes if you have multiple computers at home or on your network that you want to quickly shutdown or restart. You can even remotely shutdown a computer over the Internet, but you would first have to either VPN into the network or into the target computer you want to shut down. I’m not going to cover VPNs in this article, but if that’s something you want to do, feel free to Google it. You can perform a remote…
  • How to Setup Free Dynamic DNS for Remote Access to Your PC

    Aseem Kishore
    13 Jan 2015 | 5:58 am
    What is Dynamic DNS you might be asking? Basically, dynamic DNS is a service provided by third-party providers whereby a constantly changing IP address given by an ISP is updated regularly and associated with a hostname given by the company. If you have a broadband Internet connection at home, you more than likely have a dynamic IP address. A dynamic IP address changes every so often, as compared to a static IP address, which never changes. Normally, a changing IP address does not cause any problem until you try to connect to a local device from outside of your home network. With a…

    One of the most important and occasionally most annoying features of Windows is Windows Update. On the second Tuesday of each month Microsoft releases their software updates and patches for Windows, which are usually numerous, and most computers receive these updates automatically if Windows Update is turned on. You might notice your computer slow down while these updates are installed in the background. After they are installed, the computer will normally automatically restart 5 minutes after the installation is finished. If you are sitting at your computer, you can either restart…

  • What Should You Do With Your Smartphone’s Old SIM Card?

    Laura Jackson
    21 Jan 2015 | 6:30 pm
    I don’t know about you, but I get bored of the smartphone I have after 12 months of ownership! Mobile manufacturers release new models all the time. They often have innovative new features which our existing handsets don’t contain. To take advantage of such new gadgets, we usually upgrade our smartphones and cell network contracts. More often than not, that involves changing the network provider to get the best deal. Once upon a time cell networks would match upgrade deals from their rivals. These days, competition isn’t so aggressive. They are keen to retain their existing customers.
  • Should You Let Someone Else Manage Your PPC Campaigns?

    Laura Jackson
    20 Jan 2015 | 2:04 am
    PPC or “pay-per-click” campaigns often get used by organizations that want to drive traffic to their sites. They are also useful for new sites that have few inbound links going to them from external websites. One of the most popular PPC services on the Internet is Google AdWords. Of course, the other major search engines also operate systems for corporate clients too. When you first sign up for such a service, one thing that will become obvious is how complex they are to use!

    John Morris
    9 Jan 2015 | 7:46 pm
    When I first got into the online business/internet marketing space (way back in 2004) one of the ideas I saw thrown around a lot was this notion of getting business on “autopilot”. I always thought it was a little silly. It sounded like straight up hype to me. I mean how is it possible to get traffic, leads and sales on “autopilot”… the same numbers week after week without a lot of input on your part? Didn’t seem possible. And, for a lot of years I simply wrote it off as hype and didn’t think much more about it. Then, I started getting serious about…

    When I first entered the web design world, I felt like a fish out of water. For a long time, I felt like I really didn’t belong. Admittedly, my background is probably a bit atypical. I wasn’t born a “geek”. I grew up in a military and sports-oriented family. My first job ever was working construction for my dad. I was a star football player in high school. And, I had a fairly extensive background in sales my first few years in the workforce. I certainly wasn’t in the Mark Zuckerberg mold of learning to code from age 7.

    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…

    There’s a lot to love about Android. For starters, there is variety. It’s incredibly easy to find the exact device you’re looking for. For the most part, I think this is great. However, it does come at a price. There’s not a lot of unified software. This is mostly because manufacturers decide that they’re too good for the software Google makes and decide to make their own. And the bad thing is, they don’t produce good quality apps. This is particularly true for the default camera app on most phones. It is because of this I’ve decided to make a list of…

  • IBM is right, I am a gadfly

    Robert X. Cringely
    27 Jan 2015 | 2:08 am
    gad·fly (ˈɡadˌflī/) noun.  1. a fly that bites livestock, especially a horsefly, warble fly, or botfly. 2. an annoying person, especially one who provokes others into action by criticism. Sometimes being a gadfly is exactly what’s required. That’s certainly the case with IBM and has been for the almost eight years I’ve been following this depressing story. Gadflies came up because IBM finally reacted today to my last column predicting a massive force reduction this week. They denied it, of course -- not the workforce reduction but its size, saying there won’t be even close to…

  • Ra is a Chrome text editor and file manager for your local storage

    Mike Williams
    27 Jan 2015 | 1:53 am
    Chrome apps are sometimes criticized as being strictly internet-only, virtually useless if you need to work offline. There’s some truth in that, but it’s not always the case. Ra is a Chrome-based text editor which not only works with local text files, but can double as a simple file manager. The add-on supports plain text files only, and is clearly aimed at developers. Files are initially displayed with line numbers; there are 100+ syntax highlighting schemes, and you can opt to use emacs or vim key bindings. Ra can be used by anyone, though, and if your needs are less technical then…

This is almost similar with its past two flagship releases — the Galaxy S4 was released in New York in March 2013 while the Galaxy S5 was released in late February 2014 during the Mobile World Congress.This may be a reason for Apple to worry a bit since a new flagship will be out once again to go head-to-head with its iPhone 6.Big…

However, the skuttle butt from everyone’s favorite Apple rumorologist indicates the 12-inch MacBook Air with Retina Display will also ship in “early 2015.”Is that even credible?While Apple has previously released updated MacBooks during the first quarter, it’s been awhile since the company shipped an all-new Macintosh during the dark, dark days of Winter.Regardless,…

    Shocking new research reveals that a specific type of lung cancer many smokers develop comes from tiny tears in their lung tissue caused by microscopic glass fibers, also known as glass wool, found in many conventional cigarette filters. These rips in the epithelial (soft) tissue fuel the development of tumors and cancerous cells due to the constant overload of toxins, namely pesticides, nicotine and ammonia, contained in commercial cigarette smoke. The filters of typical commercial cigarettes contain microscopic, needle-shaped shards of glass wool (like fiberglass insulation) which escape…

This seems to be another (simpler, cheaper) way to create neuromorphic chips.

I am not the first one to write about containers and this is certainly not an in-depth overview of container technologies. I will eventually get there and show you how you can deploy different container technologies. This series of articles is about my own thoughts and a documentation for my own reference.

    So you’re sipping coffee at your favorite cafe. You’re connected to the free WiFi to check your Facebook account, maybe take a quick peek at your PayPal balance, and read the headlines. You’re so accustomed to having internet access that you don’t even consider whether the public network you’re connecting to is secure. Just because open WiFi networks have firewalls to protect users doesn’t mean that you’re protected from others logging into the same network, and some may not even have an active firewall. So when you’re using public WiFi, the information stored on your…

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

    20 Jan 2015 | 3:00 am
    Our expectations about what exactly our computers can achieve is changing. We’re no longer tied to PCs or even laptops, and flexible technology is starting to hint at a future where electronics easily (and consistently) interface with our everyday lives. Organic electronics is groundbreaking enough, but an additional ‘wow’ factor in future tech has to be gesture recognition. It’s surprising just how much can be achieved with organic electronics, and the incorporation of flexible technology and its use in applications such as bio-scanners is interesting. What makes this possible is the…

  • Analogue to Digital. Just “Upgrade after Upgrade”.

    Guest Author
    13 Dec 2014 | 5:13 am
    One thing about modern technology is the fact that these days products become obsolete almost as soon as they are released. It wasn’t like that in the glorious days of “Analogue” where things would last for years. Take cameras as an example. I bought my first quality single lens reflex 35mm film camera when I was a teenager and it still works just as well today. However I have owned maybe 4 or 5 Digital cameras in less than 10 years and the main reason for changing was to “upgrade” to the more up to date version. It’s the same with TV’s. About 12 years ago we bought a widescreen…

  • The Conference In Detroit

    Michael Arrington
    5 Jan 2015 | 9:38 am
    Detroit. It was once the factory of America. No more. For most of us, Detroit has been a city in decline for much or all of our lives. The population has declined rapidly, and everyone has seen the images of abandoned buildings, drug violence and abject poverty. In other words, Detroit is the perfect place to begin anew. There is an energy there as people begin to rebuild. A willingness to experiment. A stubbornness to succeed. Tech startups can play a pivotal role in rebuilding, but infrastructure is needed. We are seeing a dramatic increase in the number of Detroit based startups looking…

    Like many people I’ve been fascinated by the Sony hacks. So much interesting information (and gossip) about the inner workings of a major movie studio. I was also waiting for Sony to start balking at the re-publication of a lot of that information by the news sites. And sure enough, they’re now calling it stolen information, and threatening publications that are sharing it with the public. It reminds me distinctly of the situation we found ourselves in in 2009 when a hacker delivered a truckload of internal Twitter information. See In Our Inbox: Hundreds Of Confidential Twitter…

    MTailor, one of our recent investments at CrunchFund, is a really amazing company. They make tailored shirts for men, except your mobile device is the tailor. You go through a quick scanning process that involves leaning your phone or tablet against a wall and then spinning slowly in front of it. Once that’s done MTailor has your measurements, which they say are 20% better than actual tailors they used for a study. I’ve never owned tailored shirts but I should have. I have a longer body than average and generally buy tall shirts when I can find them. That’s been harder with…

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. Employees set themselves up in the app and also link their bank account.

  • Ramblings of an Entrepreneur

    Renee Schmidt
    8 Jan 2015 | 12:13 pm
    The life of an entrepreneur is not a particularly easy one. Doors open one day and for weeks or months new ones can remain shut. When doors are shut and no amount of knocking will open them, there’s nothing to lean on but certainty. Sometimes that certainty stems from a distant reminder of when a door unexpectedly flung open in the past. Other times that certainty borders on mania, stemming from nothing more than an inexplicable knowing from within. People sometimes remark to me of their admiration of how far I’ve come as an entrepreneur (how far is actually debatable, but that’s a…

The free upgrade will be available for 12 months after the release of Windows 10, as Microsoft has decided that it is more important to get the greatest number of people using Windows 10 as quickly as possible than to squeeze a few more dollars out of their existing customers. Apple has long offered free upgrades to its OSX operating system, and it results in them having fewer legacy installs to support and has the bonus of keeping users happy that they are still…
