    When it comes to developing for Google’s favourite operating system, Android fragmentation is often bandied around as an issue for app developers. But how bad is it really and what’s the impact? Fortunately you don’t have to make do with my wild guesses and assumptions as Smashing Magazine have a done a comprehensive critical analysis of testing done by app and game developers using the TestDroid cloud-based testing suite. Over 17 million tests were run on 288 different devices over 3 months early in 2014. Depending on region and measurement, the 288 devices represent…

    It's taken me about nine years, but I finally understand what Yamaha's going on about with its "torque sports" MT range. After spending a couple of weeks with the MT-09 (or FZ-09 as it's known in America), I'm convinced. Not only is Yamaha on the right track, but the MT-09 is the kind of machine that could cause a mini-revolution in the motorcycle market. Lightweight, super cheap and blessed with one of the best new engines we've seen in years, the MT is barrel-of-monkeys level fun in just about any real-world riding context. And boy did we have fun putting this video together!.. Continue…

    Even brief lapses in operation can threaten an enterprise’s existence. Credit: ShutterstockThe terms business continuity and disaster recovery are often mistakenly used interchangeably. And while cloud computing services can be used to address both business continuity and disaster recovery, you must have a fundamental understanding of the differences to do effective planning. Disaster recovery (DR) refers to having the ability to restore the data and applications that run your business should your data center, servers, or other infrastructure get damaged or destroyed.

All the major tech companies want a piece of the virtual reality pie; in early September, the VR headset maker announced it was working with Samsung to build out the product, and in March, Facebook acquired Oculus for $2 billion.

    With the recent cyberattacks at The Home Depot, Target, JPMorgan Chase, and now Kmart (division of Sears), one has to wonder whether the hackers have the edge in this ongoing cyberwar. Newsflash: In many ways, they do. Every day that goes by makes it easier and less expensive for bad guys to mount attacks that only a few years ago were prohibitively expensive. And the good guys?

With real-world performance close to benchmarks, we are looking at IOPS numbers of more than one million. Compare this with hard disk drive arrays, which achieve around 4,000 IOPS, and data access just moved into the fast lane. Equally important is the availability of storage software packages that auto-tier data between the all-flash array and bulk storage, and deduplicate, clone, and compress that…

    StartsWithABang writes We like to think of the Mercury 7 — the very first group of NASA astronauts — as the "best of the best," having been chosen from a pool of over 500 of the top military test pilots after three rounds of intense physical and mental tests. Yet when women were allowed to take the same tests, one of them clearly distinguished herself, outperforming practically all of the men. If NASA had really believed in merit, Jerrie Cobb would have been the first female in space, even before Valentina Tereshkova, more than 50 years ago. She still deserves to go.Read more of…

The hand "has the familiar gold-and-crimson color scheme favored by Ol' Shellhead, and it's designed with housings for a working gyroscope, magnetometer, accelerometer, and other "cool sensors", as well as a battery housing and room for a low-power Bluetooth chip and charging port."

    Mae Jemison turned 58 last Friday. Jemison was the first African American woman to travel into space. As a child, one of her influences was Star Trek’s Lieutenant Uhura. I hope some one, some day writes the definitive piece on all the girls inspired by this popular television character.   Role models are vital. They help clear the path, guide our future and quite possibly change the world. But where do they come from?  Many look toward Silicon Valley, land of the smart, home of the super-rich. This strikes me as a rather limiting vision. The next Lt. Uhura is not likely to be…

The latest announcements included thinner iPads, upgraded iMacs, including a new Retina Display model, and the new Yosemite version of OS X unveiled at the World Wide Developers’ Conference in June.

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…

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?

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.

  • The End of 'Walking Dead' Episode 2 Will Haunt Us Forever

    Sandra Gonzalez
    20 Oct 2014 | 12:53 am
    Warning: Spoilers ahead for Episode 2 of The Walking Dead season 5. Look, The Walking Dead is a gross show. A wonderful, action-packed, disgusting show that has trained us to have stomaches of steel. But the end of episode 2 easily ranks among the greats in the Horrific Hall of Fame. Congrats, moment henceforth known to as the #BobBQ Scene. As the hilariously inappropriate hashtag implies, poor Bob was captured and diced up by the cannibals in the final minutes of this otherwise subdued episode Notice that the word "killed" was not included in that sequence of events.

But Alicia isn't the token interesting female character on The Good Wife, she's one of many compelling female characters the show has to offer. This week's episode found the women of The Good Wife sometimes on opposing sides, but the conflict they faced only served for a richer showdown between these incredible women "Shiny Objects" did not try to be subtle about its messages. Alicia and her often-ally Elsbeth, both extremely formidable women, faced off in court in a case about sexism.

Emma and Hook went on their first official date and though Hook (or "Killian" as he asks Emma to call him) finally was able to get his hand back from Rumplestiltskin, it came with a price. We got a few bloody good threats from the Dark One in the past, present and future. And as suggested by the title of the episode ("The Apprentice") there was more Fantasia than Frozen in the episode, complete with a teeny tiny mouse. But we'll get to that. Hook, Line and Sinker…

  • Funniest/Most Insightful Comments Of The Week At Techdirt

    19 Oct 2014 | 12:00 pm
    The voting was somewhat slow this week, especially on the funny side, but that's no reason to ignore the great comments that rose to the top. After we noted that, despite the positive trend of increased exposure of police abuse, there doesn't seem to be any decrease in the abuse itself, That One Guy won first place on the insightful side by exploring the big reason for that: They remain 'oblivious' to it for the simple reason that it doesn't matter. Sure they got recorded macing someone for talking back, or beating someone, or robbing someone. What happens when that recording goes public?

In a somewhat related post, we wondered what kind of industry sets up a group to specifically oppose what consumers want -- and the answer was: Hollywood. Another such group is the BSA, and it was finally having some of its nastier practices revealed.

    Dave Winer has a short, but important post discussing how a new round of entrepreneurs (and VCs) are too focused on locking in users, rather than making use of open standards. They worry that, if they provide open access to the data their systems accumulate, no one will come to their website, therefore no one will be able to enjoy their lock-in, thereby justifying their multi-million dollar valuations. Why should we care? Problem isn't that they're young, the problem is they have a too-thin value-add to support the kind of investment they've taken on. Since VCs are now investing in news…

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

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

    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…

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…

Well you will soon be able to do that in BlackBerry Messenger. BlackBerry’s head of product and brand marketing for BBM, Jeff Gadway, has revealed two new features that are currently being tested in limited beta but will soon be available across all platforms BBM is available on. These features include ability to retract messages and get on the ephemeral bandwagon by setting a timer for messages after which they erase themselves. The ephemeral messaging feature in BBM is similar to what you can already do…

    The PlayStation 4 Remote Play feature which is currently exclusive to the Sony Xperia Z3 lineup may soon be making its way to Xperia Z2 and Xperia Z2 Tablet. Sony may have actually revealed this itself, inadvertently it seems, through the official Xperia Lounge app which mentions compatibility for the Xperia Z2 and Xperia Z2 Tablet. Sony’s Xperia Lounge app is used to offer discounts, promotions, price cuts on Sony devices and more to customers. The PS4 Remote Play feature was initially announced for the latest Xperia Z3 lineup.

    Today, in the latest installment of the never-ending “what is Verizon thinking?” saga, we’re beyond heartbroken to report America’s largest wireless carrier may have delayed its Nokia Lumia 735 launch. Initially due on Big Red’s network by the start of the holiday shopping season, the selfie powerhouse is now expected to debut in January.

  • 114-Year-Old Woman Forced to Lie to Open Facebook Account

    17 Oct 2014 | 8:59 am
    Like many people, Anna Stoehr wanted a Facebook account. She was eager to sign up, but in order to do so, had to lie about her age. No, it’s not because she’s too young, but just the opposite. Anna is 114 years old (yes you read that right) and Facebook’s registration process only recognizes birthdates up to age 99. So she fibbed-and promptly wrote a letter to Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg about it. The oldest living person in Minnesota simply told him, “I’m still here!”Continue reading 114-Year-Old Woman Forced to Lie to Open Facebook Account Related posts: Time Magazine names…

    Motivation can come from unlikely places; you never know what may trigger an inner push to do something beyond the status quo. It could be the sight of someone jogging that inspires you to get in better shape, or a passionate co-worker whose enthusiasm pushes you to improve your own office productivity. We all feel unmotivated at times. It happens, but what matters most is how we respond to that sap in motivation.

This time, in partnership with Samsung, not HTC. And, we presumed, with no ill-advised carrier exclusivity plans.

    Kris Holt
    18 Oct 2014 | 6:00 am
    Just a month after bumping up the iPhone's size, Apple is back at the table with updated versions of its tablets. There was plenty of focus on the cameras at Apple's presentation, as it tries to promote the tablet as an ideal viewfinder for taking high-quality images, while adding iPhone features like time-lapse and burst mode. However, the new push of iPad photography is just encouraging even more people to look foolish by taking photos with their tablet in public. This is a plague, and Apple is about to make the situation worse.
  • BBC to Preserve Memory of Its 'Forgotten' Articles

    Katherine Noyes
    17 Oct 2014 | 3:45 pm
    The BBC will publish and continually update a list of its published articles that were removed from Google searches under Europe's "right to be forgotten" rule. David Jordan, director of editorial policy and standards for the BBC, announced the move at a public meeting hosted by Google. The decision is a reaction to the European Commission's ruling in May -- affecting all 28 EU member states -- that search engines must remove links to someone's personal information upon request when the links are "inadequate, irrelevant or no longer relevant."
  • The iPad Air 2 Reveals Chink in Apple's Armor

    Chris Maxcer
    17 Oct 2014 | 1:38 pm
    The launch of the faster, thinner, goldier iPad Air 2, revealed a gap in Apple's shiny armor. This gap is the place where competitors have a chance to attack. However, the gap remains protected by a suit of chain mail. Let me explain. The iPad Air 2 sure looks like an amazing feat of engineering -- at just 6.1 millimeters thick, it's 18 percent thinner than its super-thin predecessor. Its Retina display is made up of three layers fused as one -- plus, it has a coating that gives it the lowest reflectivity of any tablet screen on the market.

    iSight Partners this week revealed that a cybergang it dubbed "Sandworm" has been exploiting a zero-day vulnerability that impacts all supported versions of Microsoft Windows, including Windows Server 2008 and 2012. The announcement was held off until Microsoft issued its patch earlier this week. If exploited, the flaw will let attackers remotely execute code on target systems. The cybergang hit NATO, government organizations in the Ukraine and Western Europe, a Polish energy firm, a French telecom, and academic organizations in the U.S.

    Katherine Noyes
    17 Oct 2014 | 7:22 am
    Backlash against the #Gamergate movement escalated several notches this week, thanks to high-profile newspaper reports and a public statement from the Entertainment Software Association. "Threats of violence and harassment are wrong," the ESA said. "They have to stop. There is no place in the video game community -- or our society -- for personal attacks and threats." Though #Gamergate purports to focus on ethics in gaming journalism, it's become known primarily for misogyny, harassment and threats of violence against women.

    15 Oct 2014 | 3:59 am
    Attackers are using Universal Plug and Play (UPnP) devices to launch massive DDoS assaults, Akamai’s Prolexic Security Engineering & Research Team (PLXsert) warned this morning in an advisory. PLXsert estimates that 4.1 million UPnP devices are potentially vulnerable to exploits used for reflection DDoS attacks. That’s about 38 percent of the 11 million devices in use around the world. PLXsert plans to share the list of potentially exploitable devices to members of the security community in an effort to collaborate with cleanup and mitigation efforts.

Several versions of Spike can communicate and execute commands to infected Windows, desktop Linux and ARM-based devices running the Linux operating system (OS), PLXsert said in an advisory Wednesday morning. From the advisory: Binary payloads from this toolkit are dropped and executed after the successful compromise of targeted devices, which may include PCs, servers, routers, Internet of…
  • Data Breach Victims or Enablers?

    Bill Brenner
    19 Sep 2014 | 8:28 am
    Back in May,  my good friend Eric Cowperthwaite caused a stir with a blog post about security breach victims getting demonized for failing to prevent break-ins. Other industry friends passionately disagreed. My thinking on the matter continues to evolve. But as is usually the case, my thinking takes me to the middle. Companies that suffer a breach — Home Depot and Target have been among this year’s biggest poster children — are victims. They don’t set out to put their customers’ data in danger and they probably thought they were practicing all due diligence…

    Bill Brenner

    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…

    Thanks to the efforts of Attrition.org, we’ve known for years that LIGATT Security and Gregory Evans can’t be trusted. That article includes a long list of examples where Evans has committed plagiarism and threatened those who question his credentials as a hacker. There are court documents on the Internet that add to the evidence. I won’t go into the full summary of misdeeds here, because veteran security professionals have heard and seen it all before. Besides, I can’t do it any better than Attrition.org already has. Despite all we know about Evans, the mainstream…

    Twitpic isn’t having a good time of it recently. Trademark disputes with Twitter led to an announcement that the service was shutting down, and not long after the owners announced the service had been saved by someone willing to acquire them. Looks like that deal is no longer on the table. Twitpic founder Noah Everett announced the closure on the service’s blog, stating that “agreeable terms could not be met” after meeting with “a handful of potential acquirers.” Everett also stated that the announcement that the service would not close was premature, but…

    Last night Apple announced the iPad Mini 3 and the iPad Air 2, along with a bunch of information about updates to iOS 8. Despite making us listen to a lot of information we’d heard before Apple apparently forgot to announce one important tidbit of information: The Apple SIM, a SIM card built into the Wi-Fi+LTE version of the iPad Air 2 that will offer more network flexibility. The SIM is designed to give a lot more flexibility when choosing a short term data plan in the US and the UK. Basically it means you can choose the deal that suits you best without the need for any long term…
  • A new robot makes brain surgery for epilepsy easier

    Diane Shipley
    17 Oct 2014 | 1:12 am
    Engineers have developed a surgical robot that can perform brain surgery by entering through the cheek, allowing for a much quicker recovery. It’s designed to help patients with severe epilepsy, for which the traditional treatment includes surgery to the part of the brain responsible for seizures, the hippocampus. Because this is located at the base of the brain, an operation normally involves drilling down from the top of the skull: an intense and risky procedure that understandably takes a long time to recover from. So a team from Vanderbilt University in the U.S have come up with a…

  • Heads-up: New Mac Mini doesn’t support RAM upgrades

    James O'Malley
    20 Oct 2014 | 1:28 am
    The Mac Mini received a refresh last week – bumping up the spec, and cutting the price. The down side, it has emerged, is that it might be more difficult to upgrade. Because of the device’s diminutive size, it had previously been a favourite with hackers and coders to make Home Theatre PCs, home web servers and the like. According to Mac Mini guru Brian Stucki though – the new unit has its RAM soldered into place on the motherboard. This means that upgrading the on-board RAM (which was a fairly common procedure) is now impossible: Confirmed: RAM in the new Mac mini is not…
  • Is Android going to get 3DS-style local multiplayer features?

    Word is that Google is planning improvements to Android’s local multiplayer gaming capabilities – which could encourage more playing together with the people around you, rather than cursing the sky when someone on the other side of the world beats you at Scrabble. According to ETMag (which despite what it looks like, isn’t coming through a time hole from 1995), Google will be adding a bunch of new local gaming APIs to the “Android Play” framework for developers. In lay terms, this essentially means that developers will have more tools to make creating local…
  • Console price-war? Sony releases Fifa & Minecraft bundle – and a Glacier White PS4

    James O'Malley
    17 Oct 2014 | 10:02 am
    Sony has announced a new console bundle that sees FIFA 15 and Minecraft come bundled with the PS4 for £349.99 – just weeks after Microsoft’s Xbox One makes gains with a FIFA bundle. Just weeks ago if you wanted an Xbox One or PS4, it’d cost you £350 and you’d get no games. Then Microsoft threw in FIFA and briefly took the weekly lead in console sales. Sony matched its rival… and now has thrown down the gauntlet again by bundling two games. Whilst Minecraft and FIFA aren’t the most obvious of bedfellows they are sure to make a PS4 a tempting package as…

    Last night Apple announced then ew iPad Mini 3 – an upgrade to last year’s iPad Mini 2 (or “iPad Mini with retina” to give it the proper title) and it left many commentators scratching their heads. Sure, it looks very shiny but… its awfully similar to last year isn’t it? The differences are few and far between: Essentially the only changes are TouchID instead of a home button – bringing it in line with the latest iPhones and iPad Air 2, and the addition of a digital compass and iBeacon microlocation tracker to the insides. Storage options are now 16,…

    Apple has announced the new iMac with Retina display at its iPad event yesterday morning. It sports 14.7 million pixels, giving it a resolution of 5120 x 2880—that’s 5K for those keeping count. It has 7x more pixels than your 1080p HDTV, and even 67% more pixels than the new 4K displays out there. The new Retina iMac starts with a 3.5GHz quad-core Intel Core i5 processor with two Thunderbolt 2 ports, 4 USB 3.0, 802.11ac Wi-Fi, and a standard 1TB Fusion Drive.

    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…

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…

    Google launched the Android 5.0 (Lollypop) powered Nexus 6 yesterday. The new Google flagship is manufactured by Motorola and boasts of top of the line specs. Yet, for more than one reason, it’s not quite the device I was expecting from Google. In fact, it’s the most anti-Nexus device yet from Google. Nexus 6 The Nexus line started with the Nexus One released in Jan 2010. Google hoped to revolutionize the US smartphone market with the One. Its ambitious goal of ditching carrier lock-ins and getting people to buy phones online at full price didn’t find many takers. Nexus One was a…

  • Graphene to enable simple electrochromic displays?

    oled
    19 Oct 2014 | 4:49 am
    An LCD works by selectively blocking light from a backlighting unit (BLU, usually made from LEDs) using a crystal which changes its polarization-filtering when voltage is applied. An electrochromic device is similar in idea but more simple as they can be turned from being transparent to being opaque. These kind of displays haven't been commercialized successfully yet due to fragile materials and material mismatches with the electrodes. But a new research at Bilkent University shows that graphene can be used to create such a device that features high percentage optical modulation, optical…

    A few days ago I reported that TDK will show a new STT-MRAM prototype, and now we have some more information and a couple of photos of the new test chip. TDK is showing their first STT-MRAM chip, a 8Mb device, produced on a 8" silicon substrate.  This is the first time TDK exposed their STT-MRAM technology. Those MRAM chips were produced by TDK's Headway Technologies. TDK will not mass poroduce MRAM chips themselves but rather seek a chip-making partner to produce them. But this may take a while: TDK says it could be up to 10 years before the technology matures (earlier reports said TDK…

    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…

    "Mirror, mirror, on the wall, who's the most corrupt of them all?"There is this story from the Bible [John 8: 1-11], of a 'condemned' woman, about to be stoned as the 'rules' then required, being brought infront of Jesus. His simple response was to ask anyone from the crowd who had never sinned, to throw the first stone. Each one of the accusers slithered away.I tried to imagine. If this incident had happened in the world we are living in today, not only would she have been stoned by the very people who had 'caught' her, each one of them; her captors would most likely also have been her past…

Tried harder than hell,Cast all the spells,Rang all the bells,But down it fell,Godspeed him well! What could it tell? Kept hitting that damn glass ceiling!

    The hypothetical matchup between pop culture warriors has powered TV shows, YouTube channels, and an endless number of nerdy arguments. Now, a new web series is taking its own crack at hypothetical combat scenarios between pop culture icons. It’s called Slash/Up and it has a particular focus on horror movie characters. Slash/Up is the brainchild of Dead Pixel, a production company that previously adapted a crossover comic called Marvel Zombies Vs. The Army Of Darkness. The fan film was removed after a claim from Marvel, but that hasn’t stopped Dead Pixel. Instead, they’ve…

    To a company that operated via typewriters and written letters, the concept of electronics worming their way into the corporate sphere might have seemed ridiculous.

These changes were not always easy, however, and most of them came gradually and at a great cost. In this day and age,…

    3 Oct 2014 | 7:08 am
    This story was co-published by ProPublica with The New York Times' The Upshot.

    I'm a sucker for "free" in headlines, and of course that's what the vendors that this week have rolled out freebies are counting on (as am I, in getting you to read this of course).Not that I'm going to jump on all these offers myself, but I figured I'd at least pass them along to all of you for consideration.As always, getting something for nothing is rare, and in the tech world, it usually means you're going to get nudged to upgrade at some point if you want the really good stuff...1.

  • Photo of the day: Cellphones of protest in Hong Kong

    30 Sep 2014 | 8:33 am
    Reuters -- Protesters hold their mobile phones as they block the main street to the financial Central district, outside the government headquarters, in Hong Kong on Sept. 29. Hong Kong democracy protesters defied volleys of tear gas and police baton charges to stand firm in the centre of the global financial hub on Monday, one of the biggest political challenges for China since the Tiananmen Square crackdown 25 years ago. The Communist government in Beijing made clear it would not tolerate dissent, and warned against any foreign interference as thousands of protesters massed for a fourth…

  • Passage Replaces Your Passwords with Images

    19 Oct 2014 | 3:10 pm
    Disrupt Europe Hackathon 2014 held in London this weekend produced some really good ideas on security issues and one memorable one was called Passage. A combination of password and image, it perfectly describes the concept of a new, secure and simple type of password. You can use a different image for every account and even multiple images so you have a fallback for when you lose your driver's license, for example. Comments

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

Anyway, here are Gartners for the next few years (abridged by Broadstuff) 1) By 2018, digital business will require 50 percent less business process workers and 500 percent more key digital business jobs, compared with traditional models. Near-Term Flag: By year-end 2016, 50 percent of digital transformation initiatives will be unmanageable due to lack of portfolio management skills, leading to a measurable negative lost market share. 2)…

  • Funniest/Most Insightful Comments Of The Week At Techdirt

    Leigh Beadon
    19 Oct 2014 | 12:00 pm
    The voting was somewhat slow this week, especially on the funny side, but that's no reason to ignore the great comments that rose to the top. After we noted that, despite the positive trend of increased exposure of police abuse, there doesn't seem to be any decrease in the abuse itself, That One Guy won first place on the insightful side by exploring the big reason for that: They remain 'oblivious' to it for the simple reason that it doesn't matter. Sure they got recorded macing someone for talking back, or beating someone, or robbing someone. What happens when that recording goes public?

    Five Years Ago: We were still wondering about the attempts to insert the morality question into copyright, noting that it is almost always used to "cover up the inability to justify the expansion of rights on economic grounds." In a somewhat related post, we wondered what kind of industry sets up a group to specifically oppose what consumers want -- and the answer was: Hollywood. Another such group is the BSA, and it was finally having some of its nastier practices revealed. Sticking to the copyright question, we wondered if libraries really needed licenses to lend out ebooks, since they…

    Mike Masnick
    17 Oct 2014 | 7:39 pm
    Dave Winer has a short, but important post discussing how a new round of entrepreneurs (and VCs) are too focused on locking in users, rather than making use of open standards. They worry that, if they provide open access to the data their systems accumulate, no one will come to their website, therefore no one will be able to enjoy their lock-in, thereby justifying their multi-million dollar valuations. Why should we care? Problem isn't that they're young, the problem is they have a too-thin value-add to support the kind of investment they've taken on. Since VCs are now investing in news…

    There’s something satisfying about using a tablet platform. The buttons are responsive, the screen allows your fingers to glide around and move colorful icons, and the scaled-down nature of the device makes it seem like more of a fun gadget than a business accessory. But as companies from engineering firms to retail giants are beginning to learn, tablets such as Apple’s iPad are far from a toy, and much more than a gadget.

  • 5 Tips on Writing an SEO-Friendly Blog Post

    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. On the other hand, sacrificing quality for the sake of SEO is not prudent, either. 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. Here are a few tips you can follow to make your blog post SEO-friendly: 1. It…

    16 Oct 2014 | 12:05 pm
    Apple officially released OS X Yosemite today, and to mark that occasion - as has become tradition among our people - the only OS X Yosemite review you need, from John Siracusa. OS X and iOS have been trading technologies for some time now. For example, AVFoundation, Apple's modern framework for manipulating audiovisual media, was released for iOS a year before it appeared on OS X. Going in the other direction, Core Animation, though an integral part of the entire iPhone interface, was released first on the Mac. Yosemite's new look continues the pattern; iOS got its visual refresh last year,…
  • Apple introduces 5K Retina iMac

    16 Oct 2014 | 11:59 am
    Apple introduced a 5K Retina iMac today. iMac has always been about having a huge, immersive place to see and create amazing things. So making the best possible iMac meant making the best possible display. The new 27‑inch iMac with Retina 5K display has four times as many pixels as the standard 27‑inch iMac display. So you experience unbelievable detail. On an unbelievable scale. At a relatively mere $2500 (a dell 5K display will set you back just as much, and that's just a display), this is an amazing machine. It's not useful for me (certainly not at that price point), but…

Wu has vowed to not bow to the terrorist threats, and will continue to develop games. Wu's ordeal was just the last in a long line of GamerGate terrorism, and yesterday we reached a new low.

    Pop quiz, hotshot: When's the last time you saw a Sharp phone in the United States? The Sharp FX from years back? Maybe the FX Plus? If you're anything like me, your mind will hearken back to chunky clamshell classics like this one. Long story short, it's been ages since Sharp has had any kind of mobile presence around these parts. That's something the Japanese company is finally ready to change, and it's aiming to do it with a splash. Enter the AQUOS Crystal, one of the most striking phones you'll ever see.

However, it turns out that software development isn’t as easy as coming up with an idea and doodling pictures of the logo.

Also, while this post refers to a golden age, NOTHING in it refers to fringe New Testament apocalyptic theology.

  • Report: Microsoft is about to jump into the smartwatch fray

    19 Oct 2014 | 3:55 pm
    Apple’s got a smartwatch. A number of Google’s Android hardware partners have smartwatches too. Now Microsoft wants a piece of the action, if a new report is any indication. According to Forbes, Microsoft plans to release a smartwatch of its own “within weeks.” Forbes goes on to say that the smartwatch “will passively track a wearer’s heart rate and work across different mobile platforms,” and that it would be able to go two days between charges. That would be an improvement over many current smartwatches, which often need to be charged nightly. The story behind the story: A…

In most cases it will be not only someone else but a person very low in the hierarchy of the company.

  • Two Parallel Tracks

    Alex Goldfayn
    13 Oct 2014 | 9:54 pm
    My definition of marketing is the systematic communication of your value to people who can buy it. When my clients launch their revenue growth programs, they execute two parallel tracks of this kind of communication: One-to-one: This track features your sales people and customer service people talking with customers and prospects, one at a time. They might ask the “did-you-know” question; or communicate a testimonial; or ask for a referral. It doesn’t matter what they do, so long as they take one action per day, which requires 30 seconds or, at most, 15 minutes. (If you…

    Earlier this year, I received a hand-written note. It’s the only such note I’ve received over the last year. I read it in 15 seconds, and put it down. This was about four months ago. It’s still on my desk. I cannot bring myself to throw it away. I was done with it the moment I finished reading it, but there it sits, a visual daily reminder of the time the good person took to write me personally. In an era where anyone can tweet or post or email anything to anyone at any time, it is easier than ever to stand out from the crowd. The personal communication is increasingly rare.

    Are you making time for revenue growth? It’s a proactive pursuit. You cannot spend your days reacting to customers’ issues and significantly grow your organization. Are you behaving boldly? Because marketing it no place for modesty. You improve lives and companies. Act like it. Are you asking for testimonials and referrals regularly? These are among the best and easiest ways to grow sales. Are multiple people at your company consistently asking the “Did You Know” question?

    Whether you want to admit it or not, winter is almost here and that means snow, ice and sleet in many parts of the country. As much as most of us would like to stay bundled up and inside on those cold wintery days, it just isn’t possible and travel is a daily necessity for most people. Winter can make road conditions unsafe, but by preparing your car for winter, you have a much better chance of staying safe.

The Twilight actress and the Vampire Diaries actor are excited about their ‘fur baby.’ Ian Somerhalder is, of course, a big animal rights advocate.

    Apple announced new iPads yesterday at Cupertino. The overall event felt a little underwhelming and as expected the new iPads are thinner, faster and has touch ID. Agreed that iPads are already fantastic products, but if we are being objective, Apple has not really done anything in terms of significantly different for the product lineup since the days of Steve Jobs. The star of the show was the Retina iMacs which bring a 5k display for about $2499. The new iPads will be available around next month and will include the new gold version to go along with the lineup of the iPhones. Also, this…

While Apple did let slip yesterday the exact specifications of the new iPad and the iPad Mini, there was nothing in the graphic out of the ordinary or stuff that we did not expect. The tablet does have the new Touch ID, as well as bumped up specifications and performance enhancements, and will come with iOS 8 out of the box. However, there is something in us that tells that this is not all and Apple has a…

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

    A month ago, WordPress Version 4.0 “Benny” was released for the public with several enhancements and bug fixes. Though the new WP release went smooth but the new update caused few problems for WordPress users running the older version of Thesis theme. The issue is happening with Thesis 1.8.5 and older versions of Thesis earlier than v1.8.5, that aren’t compatible with WordPress 4.0. As a result of this, Thesis 1.x users might notice 500 Server Error and “Comments not appearing in posts” after upgrading to WordPress 4.0.

  • How Facebook and Google Now Dominate Media Distribution

    Frédéric Filloux
    19 Oct 2014 | 11:02 am
      The news media sector has become heavily dependent on traffic from Facebook and Google. A reliance now dangerously close to addiction. Maybe it’s time to refocus on direct access.  Digital publishers pride themselves on their ability to funnel traffic from search and social, namely Google and Facebook (we’ll see that Twitter, contrary to its large public image, is in fact a minuscule traffic source.) In ly business, we hunt for the best Search Engine Optimization specialists, social strategists, community managers to expand the reach of our precious journalistic material;…

      The new iPad Air 2 is more than a mere iteration, but the real revolution in the iPad line may be heralded by the introduction of the iPhone 6 Plus. The new iPad Air 2 looks and feels terrific. Hold an iPad mini in one hand and an iPad Air 2 in the other —  they seem to weigh about the same. This is an illusion: The 341 gram mini is lighter than the 444 gram Air 2 (.75 vs .98 pounds; both with cellular equipment), but the Air 2 is almost impossibly thin. At 6.1 mm, the Air 2 makes the mini’s 7.4 mm feel bulky. The iPad Air 2 also has an improved screen, a better camera, enhanced…

This is an opportunity to look deeper into HP’s culture for roots of today’s probably unsolvable problems.

    The era of news media based on single product is over. In every field, diversification is mandatory, but yields will vary. Decisive prioritization will make a big difference.  Below is a list – by no means exhaustive – of products and services to be found in most media organizations. Their targets include both individual customers (I use the term on purpose because it goes well beyond the notion of readers), as well as corporate clients. Difficult as it may seem, I’ve assigned a tentative value to each item. In turn, the sum of items in any given mix must translate into the…

    Apple Pay, not even launched yet, is already making waves. Apple’s payment system has caused eBay to move people and business units around. Early in 2012, PayPal’s President, Scott Thompson, abruptly left the company to become CEO of Yahoo. During his four-year tenure at the eBay subsidiary, Thompson had doubled PayPal’s user population and increased payment volume by 26% per year to over $120B. So why did he leave? eBay CEO John Donahoe put it this way: “Scott wanted to be a CEO, and that’s great. He felt the opportunity wasn’t going to come along again. He had the best non-CEO…

  • 40 Majestic Examples of Abstract Architecture Photography

    Igor Ovsyannykov

    Abstract architecture photography is different from regular architecture photography. It offers a new perspective. It allows the viewer’s imagination run wild. You no longer see the full picture. Instead, you see a small piece of a much bigger puzzle. I guess you can sort of call this a tease. The artist takes a photo and lets you decide for yourself what you see and feel. This is the exact reason why I love abstract architecture photography. You have no surrounding context to help you formulate an educated thought about the photo at hand.

    Computer chips with superconducting circuits — circuits with zero electrical resistance — would be 50 to 100 times as energy-efficient as today’s chips, an attractive trait given the increasing power consumption of the massive data centers that power the Internet’s most popular sites. Superconducting chips also promise greater processing power: Superconducting circuits that use so-called Josephson junctions have been clocked at 770 gigahertz, or 500 times the speed of the chip in the iPhone 6.read more

    Inexpensive microrobots capable of probing and manipulating individual cells and tissue for biological research and medical applications are closer to reality with the design of a system that senses the minute forces exerted by a robot's tiny probe. Microrobots small enough to interact with cells already exist. However, there is no easy, inexpensive way to measure the small forces applied to cells by the robots.

Without large-scale carbon capture and sequestration (CCS), other measures—including rollouts of renewable and nuclear power—will not avert catastrophic climate effects in the coming century and beyond (see “The Carbon Capture Conundrum”).

    Is the Chupacabra real? The video below explains the possible species connections the Chupacabra could have. For example, is it a rat/kangaroo mix? Or what? Is the Chupacabra a new species all together? Is it a cross between two species?Many of the sightings that are hyped in the media are always proven false. That doesn't mean the Chupacabra isn't real. Nature can do weird things, and the idea of strange mutations isn't a crazy one. Until caught, the Chupacabra will remain reclusive, and mythological. The truth is out there.
  • The Real Sounds Of Hell

    28 Sep 2014 | 7:05 pm
    Researchers from a remote part of Siberia claim to have recorded real sounds from hell. They drilled a hole roughly 14 kilometers deep into earth's crust. The researchers noted an unusual amount of heat coming from the hole. After dropping ultra-sensitive microphones into the hole--to measure the earth's movements--they discovered strange feedback coming into the mics. The video below is a sample of what they recorded. It's the real sounds of hell. Maybe...If you get scared easily, don't watch the video. I warned you.'The last discovery was nevertheless the most shocking to our ears, so much…
  • Cold Weight Loss Benefits Without The Cold

    Brr-brr-brr! Scientists have discovered a way to make the body of mice burn calories as if they were exposed to the freezing cold. A potential future treatment for obesity in humans!White fat to brown fat Humans are born with a decent amount of brown fat. Brown fat is the fat best used for insulation from the cold. White fat stores energy, while brown fat is the energy burner--which comes in really handy when you want to lose some weight. Sadly, as we humans get older, brown fat seems to disappear. Ajay Chawla (UC), San Fran, and his team injected obese mice with interleukin-4 (a…

    1E Blogs - Insight and debate on IT Efficiency

  • Introducing MyWorkNow from 1E

    16 Oct 2014 | 3:28 am
    Over the last few weeks I have been building up a series of blog articles that build a picture of the IT landscape and how it is being used today. The premise is pretty simple, our technology users are becoming smarter and more demanding, with new technologies appearing weekly (in some cases daily) to help the user do things in smarter, more efficient ways and their expectations upon IT are greater than they have ever been. At 1E, we have been building technology solutions for the enterprise for over 10 years to make the technology smarter, more efficient, and above all cost less than it has…
  • 1E Nomad Performance Impacts

    Ed Aldrich
    15 Oct 2014 | 4:30 am
    In my pre-sales role, when explaining the technical aspect of 1E Nomad, I’m often asked about the impact Nomad has on the end user’s personal computer. Remember, the entire premise is to leverage the existing computers in the estate to facilitate downloading and distribution of Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager (SCCM) content of all kinds. Being concerned about the possible adverse impact this may impart on the users of those machines is a natural concern. Simply saying “trust me, they won’t even know it’s there!” is not an adequate response. This article is intended…

There have been some significant game changers in the datacenter such as server virtualization which has clearly revolutionized the way the datacenter teams are able to deliver more services at a much lower price point without diminishing the overall quality of service. So what about the EUC space, what have we seen thus far? Well, Citrix brought…

  • Always look on the bright side of life?

    14 Oct 2014 | 8:10 am
    When I was 13 years old Monty Python released the movie "The Life of Brian". What a pain! All through my teenage years fans of the movie, and there were a lot in England, would walk up to me and shout " Brian, he's not the messiah he is a very naughty boy". (If you've not seen the movie you really should). Trust me on this after the tenth time it really isn't very funny. The closing scene of the movie is the song " Always look on the bright side of life!"  It's a noble aim and is analogous to the concept of the glass being half full instead of half empty. Always look for the positives…

    Every year I attend more tech events than I care to count and every year at this time (just before my birthday) I go through my closet, collect all the "souvenir" t-shirts and donate them to a local homeless shelter. Official event t-shirts are a pretty cool reminder of the events that you've attended and some of them are even designed well enough that you are happy (and even proud) to wear them again in the future. But what about all those t-shirts given away by event sponsors that are nothing but adverts. Do you really need them? The photo above was posted on twitter by one person of their…
  • For the sins we have committed...

    5 Oct 2014 | 8:50 am
    Yesterday was the Jewish Holy Day of Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement, a day of remembrance, repentance, confession and fasting. It is unique in that it is almost universally observed, even by the most secular of Jews for whom it might be the only day of the year that they attend a service. Central to Yom Kippur is the Al Chet prayer where we are asked to consider the sins we have committed intentionally or unintentionally, what are our sins of commission and our sins of omission and what have we done inadvertently by doing nothing at all. The most important thing is that I am asked to think…

    9 years ago today, on 17th August 2005, I was just one of seventeen brave (or foolhardy) people who announced that they were leaving the very successful Mambo project and starting out on their own. It was a snap decision and truth be told if we had stopped to think about how much work lay ahead of us in the coming months I suspect we might not have been in such a rush. We were greatly helped at the time by Eben Moglen of the Software Freedom Law Centre and I believe we were their first "clients".

  • Getting Value From Your Data Series: Who Is Your Target Customer?

    Mary Ludloff
    15 Oct 2014 | 5:41 pm
    By Mary Ludloff and Marilyn Craig Welcome back to the second post in our series on how to get value from your data. 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.
  • Getting Value From Your Data Series: The Road May Be Rocky But It’s Well Worth the Effort!

    Marilyn Craig
    30 Sep 2014 | 5:06 pm
    By Mary Ludloff and Marilyn Craig Unless you’ve been asleep for the past couple of years, you, like us, have heard this phrase again and again:  Data is the new oil.  It certainly sounds great but what exactly does it mean? 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,…

The paper points out a couple of lessons that those of us living in the big data analytics world have learned the hard way but the dangers are worth revisiting as tools like ours (AnalyticsPBI for Azure) begin to move big data analytics into the mainstream of organizational practices. After all, our tool (and others like it) makes it easy and even fun for analytics junkies to use all those available zettabytes of data and answer questions that they’ve long…
  • Reporting, Analytics, and Big Data: A Continuous Feedback Loop to Drive Better Decision-Making

    By Marilyn Craig A recent conversation with a client reminded me that no matter how crazy and exciting the Big Data world gets, it is still critical to understand what your goals are and where you are in the process of reaching those goals. Having a good foundation in “what’s important” is critical before you jump into the wild world of Big Analytics. For example, in big data (well, actually all data but I digress) “Reporting” and “Analytics” are very different functions. But I often find our customers and prospects grappling with how to distinguish one from the other and as a…

In fact, way back in September 2011 when Terence and I published our book on Privacy and Big Data, I was far more optimistic than he was on the future of privacy—of course, it’s easy to sound optimistic when your co-author states that privacy is dead. (And yes, we are still working on our book update but we do have day jobs and a significant release in the works so it is slow going but going it is.) At that time, those in the “digital privacy know” characterized our book as a decent overview. Our intent at the…

But there are a few certainties in the IT universe and one of them is that IT doesn’t function if all of the pieces can’t talk to one another, and that means the network needs to be rock solid. Some of that is under the control of enterprise IT teams as internal network infrastructure, but some of it isn’t, such as WAN or Internet. Because connectivity is so essential, no one questions the need for making sure the network is healthy…
  • Citrix Stakes Software-Defined Ground; Network Remains Critical to Success

    Jim Frey
    26 Sep 2014 | 8:41 am
    Last week, I attended a Citrix analyst relations summit program to learn about the company’s direction and strategy.  While the main-tent program was longer on vision than it was on execution details, there were some aspects of the proceedings that I found compelling. First off, there weren’t a lot of net new things being introduced, other than some roadmaps shared under NDA and a truly cool multi-station mobile work experience demo. But that’s ok.  Too often, tech companies feel compelled to forever be pushing “something new,” when in reality IT pros need vendors to stick to…

    There was a time at the height of my home video and audio craze that the number of devices I needed to watch a movie could no longer be counted on one hand. Amplifier, preamplifier, tuner, CD player, DVD player, TV, cable box . . .you get the idea. As I organized my vast array of remote controls on the coffee table, I was blissfully unaware of any issues. That was the case until my wife just wanted to watch a movie one night while I was gone, and she had a conniption fit trying to figure everything out. There was no way she was going to invest the time to learn what to power up, and what…
  • Return on Investment (ROI) of Data Science as a Service

    18 Aug 2014 | 9:31 am
    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…

    Jim Frey contributed to this blog post. On Wednesday, August 6, 2014, F5 Networks held an analyst summit at the company’s tech center in NYC. It was a great opportunity to catch up and see what was new and where the company is headed. The company appears to be enjoying a bit of a renaissance, looking to redefine its role in the data center as virtualization makes headway into the network domain under the banner of SDN. While true production SDN remains in its infancy, with no single approach emerging to solve all the ills of the network world, there is no debating that programmability will…

The wearable will come with a heart rate sensor and is described to work across multiple platforms, meaning that it won't be tied to Windows or Windows Phone if true. The good news is that unlike other smartwatches today, the Microsoft-made smartwatch is described to get two days of battery life.
  • Killer Instinct 2 Classic review – the vintage fighter returns with online play on Xbox One

    Paul Acevedo
    19 Oct 2014 | 6:32 am
    In 1994, the original Killer Instinct took arcades by storm. The next year a downgraded but respectable Super Nintendo port followed, along with a GameBoy version. The home games helped maintain enthusiasm until Killer Instinct 2 arrived in arcades in 1996. The Nintendo 64 would see a mildly stripped-down port called Killer Instinct Gold that year. The true arcade version of Killer Instinct 2 has never been available on home consoles… Until now. Like Killer Instinct Classic before it, Killer Instinct 2 Classic comes bundled with the purchase of Killer Instinct 2 Ultra Edition on Xbox One.

    It sounds obvious to spend your social budget to please valuable fans, doesn’t it? So why aren’t we doing so? It looks like we are shooting in the blind, meanwhile complaining that the ROI of social media is poor. Fortunately, it’s possible to learn who your valuable fans are and what they appreciate. Once you are aware of that, the magic begins. During infoShare 2014 (22-23 May) in Gdansk we will discuss this topic by sharing our concerns and experiences with today’s social media practices.

    Probably you have been investing a lot of time and money this year to increase your social follower base. Did it pay off? Unfortunately, when talking to marketing managers I often hear they don’t know whether their investment really paid off. Basically this means it probably didn’t or they just don’t have any idea. Fact is that many marketing managers don’t know how to value their social media investment. They are happy that they managed to increase their follower base, but don’t know if this had any impact on their brand awareness, engagement, sales results, etc. The…

    This evening I had the pleasure to meet with the Agile community in Tri-City, Agile3M. After several discussions around working in an Agile way they were wondering how to solve the contracting with an external client. Honestly, this is a rather challenging topic. Based on mutual trust it’s possible to reach an agreement, but in case trust is lacking, it’s going to be a long, hard road. It’s a matter of give and take Working in an Agile way has in my opinion many advantages and increasingly research is showing this as well. But this doesn’t mean it’s easy. I would…

    Would you rather be a spender or saver? You are a saver if you are a chronic budgeter and keep record of your spending habit. Savers are likely to have a long-term outlook that likely includes smart retirement planning.  Savers tend to be naturally patient and more responsible, they hold back on giving or using money and have trouble spending. Others prefer to get what you want, when you want it. Spenders are spontaneous and have less holding them back. Some people love to spend but responsibility. spenders can make impulsive decisions and end up with nothing to show for their hard…

    Competition is healthy and makes for a more innovative market, which is essential for the discerning consumer in a globalised world. For startups however, the issue is how you can survive as a small fish with whales in a big sea. Competition in a business context is either direct or indirect for any startup or established company. Even if you have a product or business service that is completely niche or unique, it is impossible not to face some stiff competition. Most large companies have all the resources they need to compete with smaller companies that want a piece of the pie...

You maybe try a new brand of clothing, one that looks the same as the old brand. You vow to raise your hand more in class, but not enough to become the teacher’s pet. This came to mind when we were discussing the “Share a Coke” campaign (the one where they put people’s names and cutesy words like “Legend” and “BFF” and all kinds of things that grownups never say to one another on the cans…

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

  • ‘Golden Triangle’ Disappears As Search-User Behavior Evolves

    Dave Paul
    14 Oct 2014 | 1:16 pm
    A cornerstone of SEO has always been the “golden triangle,” the tiny, vaunted piece of real estate on the search engine results page (SERP) where users are most likely to notice your site. But new research shows that the golden triangle has lost its hold—and that users aren’t scanning search results the way they used to. The golden triangle was discovered as far back as 2005. That was when SEO researchers first used “eye-tracking” studies to create a heat map of the parts of the screen that a user actually looks at. Those studies showed that users start in the top left and read…

    How does your law firm handle SEO? For many firms, getting ranked on Google has been an uphill battle, one made worse by SEO companies that overpromise and under-deliver. The problem is that Attorneys and firm managers don’t always have a working knowledge of SEO tactics, which means they end up relying entirely on the advice of their SEO agency—often without knowing what good SEO looks like. That’s why EverSpark created My SEO Blueprint – Legal Edition: Top 50 Tips to Rank Your Law Firm on Google. This in-depth guide shows your firm the top 50 steps you can take—with or without an…

This is a big change. Almost since it was first launched, Google+ has been baked into Gmail and other Google accounts. In other words, if you created a Google account of any kind, you were automatically added to the social network whether you liked it or not. A lot of people didn’t like it.

    The excellent investor and commentator Barry Ritholtz recently published a long-term stock market chart. The chart shows what most students of market history quickly learn: Stocks move in distinct "bull" and "bear" phases that often last for decades: The big argument among market pundits these days is whether the market is still in the middle of the "bear" phase that began in 2000 (14 years and counting) ... or in the middle of a new "bull" phase that started at the financial-crisis low in 2009 (five years and counting). The bulls look at the chart above and point out that we moved sideways…

Previously, it was unimaginable, but now even from your home, you can make a bomb. The MCMC must do a comprehensive check to see how we can block sites that are harmful to the nation,” he said.

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

  • Is Malaysia’s Broadband slow–no it isn’t.

    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…

    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…

Other than that, Kingston have been releasing few V series SSDs here and there. So, we should expect good ‘mainstream’ performance now that it comes with HyperX, or so we would like to think. Afterall, that’s the idea of having  series within the branding to differentiate between the products. But many things changed. Those were the times practically every flash NAND centric brand that doesn’t make its own NAND or controller was slapping…

    Astronomers looking for exoplanets are using a fine-toothed comb – a fine-toothed astro-comb, to be precise. And just to make sure it works, the first planet they’ll be looking for is Venus. Developed by astronomers Chih-Hao Li and David Phillips of the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics, the astro-comb uses a new spectroscopic device installed in the Italian Telescopio Nazionale Galileo in the Canary Islands that will detect the beclouded planet by its gravitational effect on the Sun as a test of a potentially valuable tool in the hunt for Earth-like planets beyond our Solar…

    When you talk on the Internet, you need to agree on a language with which to communicate. What if you want to talk privately? Well, there’s encryption for that. But just like any other sort of communication, you also need to have a form of encryption that you can use mutually with whomever you’re talking to. Since not all browsers use the same algorithms, servers sometimes have to retain compatibility with algorithms that can be quite dangerous. Google has just recently discovered an exploit that at this moment can affect millions of browsers worldwide that use such an algorithm,…

  • Facial recognition is possible even if part of the face is covered

    Carolyn Semmler, Senior Lecturer in Psychology at University of Adelaide
    19 Oct 2014 | 6:55 pm
    You don't need to see the whole face to identify someone. Flickr/craig, CC BY-NDThe need to accurately identify people is important for security (and for not embarrassing yourself by hugging strangers). It was cited as the main reason for excluding and restricting the movements of individuals wearing religious head and face coverings in public spaces. A plan to make Muslim women wearing facial coverings sit in glassed enclosures at Parliament House has been dropped but the question remains: how good are we at identifying people from their facial features?

  • Copulate to populate: ancient Scottish fish did it sideways

    John Long, Strategic Professor in Palaeontology at Flinders University
    19 Oct 2014 | 1:07 pm
    So ... how 'bout it? Wendi Kelly/Flickr, CC BY-SAThe intimate act of copulation is old – very old. In fact, it first evolved in ancient armoured placoderm fishes called antiarchs 385 million years ago. Fossils of the antiarch Microbrachius dicki show males with large bony L-shaped claspers for transferring sperm, whereas females bore small paired bones to help dock the male organs into position. These discoveries, published today in the journal Nature, represent the first appearance of sex involving copulation in vertebrates (back-boned animals). It’s also the first time in…

Around half a billion people in the world live near high-risk volcanic eruption areas. Of 829 volcanoes in the world, 129 of them, or around 15.6%, are located in Indonesia.

    Meteors streak outwards from the top of Orion's head as seen in 2012 from central Victoria. Phil Hart, CC BYAs Earth orbits the sun, it continually ploughs through dust and debris left behind by passing comets and asteroids. On any night of the year, a keen-eyed observer might see five, or even ten, meteors (shooting stars) per hour. But over the next week, that number will rise markedly, as Earth moves through the centre of a stream of debris left behind by the most famous of all comets, comet 1P/Halley. Most meteor showers have a short, sharp maximum that is best observed over a single…

  • Could a Microsoft smartwatch succeed?

    Wayne Williams
    20 Oct 2014 | 12:59 am
    According to Forbes, Microsoft is preparing to launch a smartwatch in the coming weeks. Forbes says the device will "passively track a wearer’s heart rate and work across different mobile platforms". So the good news is it won’t be tied to Windows Phone which only has a tiny 2.5 percent share of the mobile market. A device that isn’t tied to the one platform is a very smart move for Microsoft. Apple Watch will probably be the device that propels smartwatches into the mainstream, but it requires wearers to have an iPhone. Android smartwatches connect to Android mobiles. If you switch…

    There are many times when tech pundits are wrong about things. I remember thinking the first iPad was a disaster -- who wanted a computer that did not have a USB port for flash drives? The whole world apparently, including myself, only a short while after it launched. The same can be said about Samsung's Note line of smartphones. When the first Note launched, I thought people looked idiotic using such a large phone. I mean, talking on that monstrosity in public? You look like a loon, right? Wrong there too -- people loved it and the industry followed Samsung's phablet lead. Hell, the term…

Yosemite was expected, but the Mac mini refresh came slightly out of the blue. For anyone looking for a cheap way to get their hands on a Mac, it's a great starting point -- prices start at just $499. But you'd better make sure you select a model with enough RAM when you place your order -- Apple has taken steps that mean it is impossible for buyers to install more memory. The surprising news…

Who are they, and what do they have to do with us?OK, let’s do what they taught us in college and start with a definition of our key term: According to Andrew Rollings, author of Fundamentals of Game Design, “Online gaming is a technology rather than a genre, a…

    La nostra connessione è particolare: non si tratta di una tecnologia basata su un rateo fisso di concentrazione. Anche se abbiamo massima potenza, a volte può subire qualche scalo o semplicemente sparire per qualche secondo. L’importante è perciò massimizzare la potenza della connessione, ma c’è sempre qualche rischio da correre. Alcuni preferiscono scaricare dei programmi che spesso si rivelano dei malware, oppure questi corrompono il sistema. Il punto è che modificare un fattore così cruciale del proprio smartphone può in tutto e per tutto essere pericoloso. Vi daremo, però, un…

Sometimes it won't even open, sometimes you find out that you can't write anything to it! It will tell you that you don't have permission to write to that partition. Damn! Does that mean Linux don't know how to work with NTFS partitions? Not really... Most of the Linux fans install only Linux on their system. So for them, NTFS partition access is useless....

Current WiFi tech uses the 2.4GHz and 5GHz spectrums with speeds of up to 866Mbps (108MB/s), but Samsung’s 802.11ad gear makes use of the currently unlicensed 60GHz spectrum, which means speeds of up to 4.6Gbps (575MB/s) are possible. These speeds would mean downloading a full HD movie would only take a few seconds. The 802.11ad standard and…

    Google was shameless about teasing us all about what the "L" in "Android L" stood for until this week when the company finally revealed that its latest software build would be called Android 5.0 Lollipop. The Android Developers Conference has written a humorous post that details some of the "rejected" Android L names and logos, although the site notes that none of these were ever under real consideration by Google and that it made all of these concepts up just for fun.

  • Android vendors reportedly shot down Google’s bold anti-fragmentation plan

    Android Silver was supposed to be Google’s next-gen line of high-end devices that would offer users access to top hardware and a stock Android experience. While the Search giant never confirmed these plans, reports said that Google wanted to replace Nexus and Google Play Edition smartphones and tablets with Android Silver, with some people even claiming the Nexus 6 might have been sacrificed in the process. However, it turned out that Google had to postpone its Android Silver plans, and the company confirmed soon after I/O 2014 that it isn’t interested in dumping the Nexus device line.

    One of the lesser moons of Saturn, Mimas, has been largely viewed as a boring lump of ice.

Mimas is almost perfectly spherical, so a robust wobble implies that something intriguing is going on below its surface...  and that something is very likely to be sloshing. The most likely explanation for the wobble would be an internal ocean starting between 24 and 31 kilometers below the moon's surface. This would be something of a puzzle in a moon as small as…

    Did you know that if Apple and Google encrypt data on smartphones then terrorists, pedophiles and other very bad people will be able to roam completely free and likely destroy society as we know it? That's the message that Federal Bureau of Investigation chief James Comey has been sending and he was at it again this week in a speech delivered to the Brookings Institute in which he railed against smartphone encryption as a direct threat to law enforcement's ability to gather evidence.
