    Have you ever tried to create a major slide presentation on a tablet? Or edit a large spreadsheet? Or write a long document? Probably not. While it’s certainly possible to perform more substantial business tasks on a tablet, the small screen real estate and limited system resources (e.g., processing speed, memory, graphic support, etc.) are typically insufficient in current tablet form factors. However, carrying a laptop around with you everywhere you go just so you can access email is not very practical either. The reality is that we live in a multi-device world where the average worker…

  • Boeing and RAAF triple bomb range with new JDAM-ER kit

    26 Feb 2015 | 9:29 pm
    Boeing and the Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) have carried out tests of the Joint Direct Attack Munition Extended Range (JDAM-ER), which showed a three-times increase in range while maintaining accuracy. The add-on guidance kit for bombs was put through its paces at Australia's Woomera Test Range, where the 500-lb (227 kg) ordnance was dropped by RAAF F/A-18 Classic Hornets from altitudes ranging from 40,000 ft (12,190 m) down to 10,000 ft (3,048 m). ..

    In an old school gaming party to end all parties, Google's new deep Q-network (DQN) algorithm is likely to mop the floor with you at Breakout or Space Invaders, but maybe take a licking at Centipede. Provided with only the same inputs as a human player and no previous real-world knowledge, DQN uses reinforcement learning to learn new games, and in some cases, develop new strategies. Its designers argue that this kind of general learning algorithm can crossover into discovery making in other fields. ..

  • Net neutrality win: US FCC reclassifies broadband as a public utility, bans internet "fast lanes"

    Loz Blain
    26 Feb 2015 | 8:09 pm
    The United States Federal Communications Commission (FCC) today voted 3-2 to uphold the principles of network neutrality – that is, to force Internet Service Providers (ISPs) to treat all web traffic as equal. This prevents ISPs from being able to throttle or block users' connections to certain websites, or to offer "Internet fast lanes" whereby large websites could pay for their content to be delivered at a higher speed. Open Internet advocates see this as a huge step to protect the internet's current status as a free and open platform that offers equal opportunities to small and large…

"The Innovation Act isn't an ideal fix for the program patent system. But provisions in the proposed law, like one that will make trolls pay legal costs if their claims are rejected, will remove a good deal of the risk that smaller companies face when they decide to resist a spurious lawsuit," Snyder writes. That said, "You'd have to be wildly optimistic to think that software patents will be abolished.

Having said that, the opportunity to have interviewed Saul Singer is definitely at the top of my list. If you are not familiar (how are you not familiar?), Saul wrote the book “Startup Nation” along with his brother in law, Dan Senor. Saul has been a journalist for many years, and has been a thought-leader to the Israeli tech scene through his global tours, speaking engagements, and contributions to leading and influential publications across the web and print.

  • An Interview with Tomer Sharon, Senior User Experience Researcher at Google about UX, Mobile, and Life at Google

    A few weeks ago, I was fortunate enough to visit an old friend at Google, NY. Now why is that interesting? Because I call Tomer “An old friend” despite the fact that I had never met him. “Wow, you have a strange definition of friend” is probably what you’re thinking. Could very well be, but if you think about the nature of friendship, you will quickly realize that a friend is someone you learn from, someone you share experiences with, and someone you respect and, well, like. Such is Tomer. I have been following Tomer for years on the social web and consistently…

    By: Hillel Fuld (@Hilzfuld) There are many tech blogs out there. Way too many. For us tech addicts, that means too much daily reading. But then there are the ones that stand out. The tech blogs that consistently put out top-notch work and do it without the need for stupid blogger politics, or an ego the size of south america. Of course that last part, the lack an ego that makes it difficult to work with them, really limits the bunch to a very few selected blogs. The Next Web is at the top of that list.

  • $150K dress worn by Lupita Nyong'o at Oscars reported stolen

    The Associated Press
    26 Feb 2015 | 8:47 pm
    LOS ANGELES — The theft of a $150,000 pearl-covered gown worn by Lupita Nyong'o at the Oscars doesn't surprise Hollywood stylists who have personally experienced the seedy side of red carpet fashion. Style expert and fashion commentator Mary Alice Stephenson has for years heard stories about similar stolen celebrity items. "It's not shocking to me that this would be taken out of her hotel room," said Stephenson, who once had a nabbed Fendi bag held for ransom.

    Yes, the Internet went crazy Thursday night over a dress that looked white and gold to some people, and blue and black to others. We're not here to debate why some people see it one way and some people see it otherwise. No, we're just here to point this out: The Internet is going nuts over a photo that's just terribly, horribly overexposed.

  • Minnesota Legislators, Law Enforcement Trying To Strip The 'Public Accountability' Out Of State's Body Camera Program

    Tim Cushing
    26 Feb 2015 | 9:00 pm
    More cities and states are getting behind the idea that outfitting their law enforcement officers with body cameras will result in better policing and more accountability. Unfortunately, many of them then follow this moment of clarity by gutting the "accountability" part of the programs. Los Angeles law enforcement agencies will only turn over camera footage if it's part of a criminal or civil suit. Florida legislators are pushing for additional exceptions in the state's open records laws specifically for body camera footage and specifically at the request of the state's police union.
  • DailyDirt: Keeping Information For A Really, Really, Really Long Time

    Michael Ho
    26 Feb 2015 | 5:00 pm
    The problem of storing digital data usually involves transferring data from an older format to a newer one -- with the hopes that the newer one won't be replaced as quickly as the older format it just replaced. Maybe some archivists out there like to go through this periodic technology shift and verify that the data we've stored is still readable, but wouldn't it be nice if there was a "store it and forget it" format? A single gram of DNA can store up to 455 exabytes of data, and roughly four grams of DNA could store all of the world's collected information. It's not cheap to store arbitrary…
  • Verizon At Least Shows It Has A Sense Of Humor About Net Neutrality, Even If It's Incapable Of Respecting It

    Karl Bode
    26 Feb 2015 | 3:40 pm
    Sure, Verizon may be endlessly misleading when it comes to everything from the spectrum crunch to network investment. And when it comes to anti-competitive telecom behavior it wrote the book. Hell, Verizon's even in many ways directly responsible for this week's net neutrality ruling by suing to overturn the original flimsy net neutrality rules -- rules every other ISP had absolutely no problem with. But while you can say a lot of things about Verizon, you can't say the company doesn't have a sense of humor. As you might expect, Verizon took to the company's blog to protest the FCC's new…

    Despite the feds' best efforts to keep IMSI catchers (Stingray devices, colloquially and almost certainly to the dismay of manufacturer Harris Corporation, as they head to becoming the kleenex of surveillance tech) a secret, there's still enough information leaking out around the edges of the FBI's non-disclosure agreements to provoke public discussion.

    At some point, this whole fad of trademarking phrases that leap into the public consciousness through public events is going to have to stop. Between trying to lock the language of the recently slain, the foreign policy story du jour, and all the rest, eventually the public and the courts are going to have to realize that this can't go on unchecked. For some reason, professional and college sports organizations seem especially prone to this kind of nonsense, from the attempt to exert control over a colloquial term to a team simply treating its own fanbase like so much trademarkable chattle.

  • Bandit Ultra Trail Race 2015 – Volunteering and Photos O’ Plenty

    Jesse
    24 Feb 2015 | 8:24 am
    Last year I signed up for the Bandit Ultra Trail Race 30k and the days leading up to the race I got sicker and sicker. The day before the race I thought I could pull it off even though I had massive body aches and felt like death warmed over. I picked up my bib and shirt but by the time I got home I was a wreck and had to DNS the race. This year I went back to the Bandit a week after running the Sean O’ Brien Marathon but went to volunteer. If you were in the race, I was one of the guys along with JK who helped steer 50k, 30k and 15k runners around the first loop then onto the first…

After some training I figured it made more sense to do a trail marathon first so with that I changed my registration from the Sean O’Brien 50K to the Marathon race on February 7, 2015. If you’re not familiar with the Sean O’Brien races, this is the second year for the races, held at Malibu Creek State Park in Agoura Hills. Last year runners could sign up for the Marathon, 50k or the 50 miler. The 50 miler turned into a playground for elite runners seeking to qualify for a coveted Western States…

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. Who can say no to 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…

VAIO used to be part of Sony once, but since 2014, they have ended up under the umbrella of Japanese Industrial Partners (JIP).Well, new rumors have surfaced, touting that the brand will be debuting a smartphone in…

    Sprint subscribers, listen up! Perhaps it is time you have stopped your search for an Android-powered tablet, as when March 13th arrives, you will be able to get your hands on the LG G Pad F 7.0 for free. Yes sir, not a single cent need to be dropped down, as long as you agree to a 2-year agreement and any active Sprint smartphone.While there might not be any free lunch in this world, at the very least, there is a free tablet lying around somewhere, don’t you think so?

    26 Feb 2015 | 10:33 am
    LoopPay fools the terminal into thinking a credit card has been swiped. Using a LoopPay fob digital wallet to pay in stores, taxis, and restaurants, has replaced my wallet, better than ApplePay, but it’s about to change as Samsung has acquired LoopPay as a fully owned subsidiary. The technology doesn’t require bank or store participation as it uses Magnetic Secure Transmission that can be read by POS (point of sale) as if a credit or debit card has been swiped. According to the LoopPay… Continue reading Samsung acquires LoopPay Related posts: Use LoopPay and truly leave your wallet at…

    Perhaps jealous of all the attention HTC’s been getting this past week in the wake of some very thorough One M9 visual leaks, Samsung may have let the cat out of the bag once and for all. Granted, the Galaxy S6 was never the world’s best kept secret, but aside from a few schematics and parts of the alleged metal skeleton, we were yet to see the “next big thing” in the flesh.Continue reading Samsung Galaxy S6 prototype stars in extensive photo shoot Related posts: HTC M9 Plus stars in its own covert photo shoot, not the same as M9 Motorola Moto E gets extensive photo shoot ahead of May…

    Although Motorola was recently forced to justify its Android 5.0 upgrading lethargy for the original 2013 Moto X, we’re still waiting for a solid explanation as to the Lollipop delays on the advanced 2014 variant. And no, the “contemporary” Snapdragon 801 processor can’t be at fault here. Granted, we may be pointing the finger at the wrong culprit.

Quickly, your best friend becomes your mortal enemy as you rewind and play through the troublesome lyric in the chosen song over and over again.

  • Malicious Emailers Find Healthcare Firms Juicy Prey

    John P. Mello Jr.
    26 Feb 2015 | 9:11 am
    Healthcare providers have garnered growing interest from hackers in recent months. More evidence of that trend appeared last week in a report on email trust. An email that appeared to come from a healthcare company was four times more likely to be fraudulent than an email purportedly from a social media company like Facebook, one of the largest creators of email on the Internet, Agari found. The report gives industries a TrustScore -- that is, a number that reflects the trustworthiness of email from companies within that industry group.
  • Pearl OS Could Be a Gem in the Making

    Jack M. Germain
    26 Feb 2015 | 5:00 am
    If you favor the OS X environment, Pearl OS might be a Linux distro to feed your fancy. Pearl OS is a revival of the discontinued Pear OS distro. It picks up where Pear left off in early 2014. Pearl OS has two desktop versions: XFCE and MATE. Both are based on Ubuntu Linux distro version 14.04 Mini release. The two flavors of Pearl OS are customized to look and act like the OS X operating system. But Pearl is Linux and not OS X. This distro runs Debian-based Linux applications. It does not run OS X software or have actual OS X functions.

    Volvo last week revealed the latest developments in its Drive Me project, showing off a complete system that could make it possible to integrate self-driving cars into regular traffic with drivers behind the wheel. Volvo is making progress toward its goal of releasing 100 self-driving vehicles to consumers on selected roads around Gothenburg -- Sweden's second largest city -- by 2017, the company said. Volvo is working with legislators, transport authorities and city officials to help ensure a crash-free future on the roads.

    Valve on Monday announced that it's getting into the virtual reality hardware business. In a terse tease posted to the Web, the company trumpeted its intentions to reveal its SteamVR hardware system next week at the 2015 Game Developers Conference in San Francisco. Valve also announced that it is looking for developers and publishers to create content for its new VR hardware system. Also to be demonstrated at next week's GDC will be a refined version of the Steam Controller and a number of living room devices, Valve said.
  • Open Source vs. Proprietary Firms on the IoT Battleground

    Jack M. Germain
    25 Feb 2015 | 5:00 am
    Technology wars are predictable. Every new wave of gadgetry brings a fight over who will be the next king of the software hill. The next big battle is brewing over control of the Internet of Things marketplace. Consumers see only convenience and extensions to their always-on mobile devices. Product makers see a pathway to streaming data that can be monetized from buyers' connections. Will history repeat itself, as open source begins to take on the current, yet unsustainable, walled-garden core of the IoT?

  • A Failed Hacker Unmasking Exercise

    Bill Brenner
    10 Feb 2015 | 5:26 am
    “A ridiculous article which purports to show us the face of a hacker…” — Chris Wysopal, CTO of Veracode, in a tweet The ability of media outlets to create sophisticated images and graphics is light years beyond what it was when I was a young journalist in the 1990s. The technology has spawned a lot of cool projects, like this visual of a botnet from my former employer, CSOonline.com. The enhanced capability also leads to some truly ridiculous creations. For example, this Secure Thoughts piece on “hackers unmasked.” The writer asks, “Who are the…

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…

    A young woman wanders around in her underwear, fondling her cleavage and thigh, biting her lip. What is this, some sub-‘50 Shades’ soft p0rn? Oh no, look, she’s doing her ironing, must be a gender-normative ad for some boring household product. Ahhh, no, I see what it is now: an ad for Kazam’s Tornado 348 mobile phone which she’s accidentally ironed because it’s so thin and unobtrusive.(Women, those dopes.) Yes, that explains why we needed all those lingering shots of her with no clothes on. Or no, wait. Actually, it doesn’t. In a victory against the idea that the male gaze…

    Sure, it might be cool to have a cure for cancer or see Aids ended in our lifetime. Maybe people with neurodegenerative diseases could be given a sliver of scientific hope. But I think we can all agree that there’s one field of research that’s truly important for the future of humanity: optimal eyelash length. Well, now we can all stop obsessing, because the answers are in. (I tease, but it’s actually potentially useful info from both a health and environmental perspective – no, really.) Georgia Institute of Technology researchers sent a student to measure the eyes and eyelashes…
  • Smartphone displays could have built-in fingerprint scanners fairly soon

    Tom Pritchard
    26 Feb 2015 | 6:56 am
    Remember a couple of weeks ago when we showed you Apple’s patent for building TouchID into an iPhone/iPad display? It could happen sooner than you think. Apple’s idea might still be in the very early stages, but a South Korean company believes it can build fingerprint-scanning touchscreens into phones by the end of the year. CrucialTec already has patent approval for a fingerprint scanner that is embedded as part of the smartphone’s display. This would negate the need for a separate fingerprint-scanning button which would otherwise waste valuable space on the front of the…

    Good news for romantic comedy heroines with a clumsy streak (i.e. all of them): scientists have found the type of coffee least likely to spill. Lattes are apparently much easier to carry incident-free than your standard drip coffee – which turns out to be aptly named. Researchers Emilie Dressaire, from the New York University Polytechnic School of Engineering, and Alban Sauret, from the French National Centre for Scientific Research, had both noticed that foam seems to make some drinks less prone to spillage. So they decided to test to see if they could find a scientific formula to explain…

  • Hands on with the Roto Motorised VR gaming platform – could it be about to change VR gaming?

    James O'Malley
    26 Feb 2015 | 5:12 am
    A new VR product is hoping to take Oculus Rift gaming out of the “Cone of Comfort” and into give gamers a full 360-degree experience. Roto is a motorised seat base that will move with you when you’re wearing a VR headset and allow you to fully explore 3D worlds. The creators of Roto argue that even with products like the Oculus Rift or Samsung Gear VR headset, after looking about a little bit you’ll always end up playing the game as normal, keeping your vision within a relatively limited field of vision. Worse still, with headsets when you do spin around whilst staying seated, it can…

The first person game sees players have to use a combination of stealth and shooting to participate in a wide range of criminal activities – from robbing a bank, to rigging an election. Released only on PC, Xbox 360 and PS3 so far, it has proved hugely successful – so the console transition perhaps shouldn’t be a surprise. Sadly though, it looks like you won’t be able to bring your save data with you. According to Eurogamer, the…

    It appears that the forthcoming Apple Watch will work fine in the shower – judging by comments from CEO Tim Cook. According to 9to5Mac, Cook told a Berlin Apple Store employee that he wears his watch all the time – “even in the shower”. As 9T5M notes, whilst water resistance has been mooted before, it is interesting to hear confirmation that the watch will be able to take a little more than just light rain. Full water resistance isn’t outside of the realms of possibility: the watch itself uses induction charging meaning that it should be fully possible to seal up…

While the company hasn't stated any sort of agenda or product focus for the event, it's obvious to anyone paying attention that this will be the place where the company will detail the Apple Watch in full, ahead of the April release of the timepiece. We expect that we will finally get a solid release date, possible pre-order date, and the information that…

    "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…

    26 Feb 2015 | 4:06 pm
    Last year, we noted Dragon Ball Z: Light of Hope, a fan project in search of $9,001 on Indiegogo. Since then, the team behind Light of Hope has reached its funding goal, produced a high-quality pilot, and released that pilot on YouTube. The first episode of Light of Hope is here, and it is the impressive DBZ fan series we were promised. Light of Hope is the work of Robot Underdog, a group of geeks who have used their production skills to offer a gritty interpretation of DBZ‘s already-dark History of Trunks plot arc. In the first episodes, a pair of androids touch down on earth, and they…

    Mark Malkoff is bringing a sketch comedy experience to young YouTube viewers. The comedian, whose public challenge videos have received millions of views, has launched 2 Juice Minimum, a new channel aimed at children between the ages of four and nine. Videos on 2JM feature clean comedy that also manages to showcase the fearless style Malkoff is known for. In one video, Malkoff challenges some kids to “scream-offs,” but he doesn’t manage to pull off a single win, even when he competes against inanimate objects.

    Eric Dye
    26 Feb 2015 | 9:00 am
    Towards the end of 2014 the idea began to brew about establishing Staff Writers for ChurchMag. These would be regular contributors who have a passion and unique strengths surrounding Church tech and creativity. Like the newspaper days of old, each Staff Writer would be given a “beat” to cover and would write at least one post per week with a commitment of one year. Since the beginning of the year, this team of Staff Writers have been following through with all kinds of awesome. So as I introduce you to the 2015 ChurchMag Staff Writers, you may recognize them—not for who I say they are,…
  • The 5 Types of Blog Posts that Always Work

    Rachel Blom
    26 Feb 2015 | 7:00 am
    I sure hope you appreciate a little irony, because that’s exactly what the title of this blog post is. Ironic. You see, many how-to books and posts on blogging make promises like the one above, that if you just do this-and-this, you’ll attract hundreds, thousands of readers. You wanna know why? Because posts like that work. Here’s the common wisdom on what types of posts work: How-to’s (‘How to write the perfect blog post’) Lists (‘The 7 reasons why your blog is slow’) Promises that solve a problem or felt need (‘How to find new readers for your blog’) Sparked recognition…
  • How To Schedule Instagram Posts

    Katie Allred
    25 Feb 2015 | 11:00 am
    For the longest time, scheduling Instagram was impossible, and it still pretty much is. Instagram has their API under lock and key, but one company, ScheduGram has changed all of that. Here’s how you can schedule Instagram posts with ScheduGram: ScheduGram With a ScheduGram account, you can easily upload and post to multiple Instagram accounts. You can even bulk upload when necessary. Probably the nicest part is that you can schedule when you post. I see this being great for churches, ministries, and nonprofits who want to post Bible verses or quotes throughout the week, but despise the…

    Jeremy Smith
    25 Feb 2015 | 9:00 am
    I’m going to write this article about the infographic because it is a good discussion starter, but I want you to know one thing. I hate when people ask how frequently you should post, but the person you are asking has never seen your account, doesn’t know your social media strategy, and has no idea what you want to do with your platform. So I’m going to communicate some facts after the infographic, but I DO NOT endorse mimicking this infographic word for word. Instead, be intentional. Nothing more.

  • Science Fiction and Gender Roles

    Phil Schneider
    25 Feb 2015 | 7:00 am
    I’ve written before about the power of science fiction to inject ideas into the mainstream while driving the conversation forward. Lately, one of the bigger issues in the wider cultural dialogue has been gender equality. As a man, I don’t want to weigh in as an authority, though I will admit that my wife, who is a woman, is objectively a much better person than I am. However, I don’t want to subject my wife to the blogosphere, so I’ll point a spotlight at someone better equipped to handle it: The Doctor. Specifically, The Fifth, Peter Davison. The Renegade Time Lord,…

    (Faculty of Physics University of Warsaw) A state-of-the-art optical atomic clock, collaboratively developed by scientists from the University of Warsaw, Jagiellonian University, and Nicolaus Copernicus University, is now 'ticking away' at the National Laboratory of Atomic, Molecular and Optical Physics in Toru, Poland. As the first of its kind in Poland and one of just a handful of clocks of this caliber in the world, the new clock will keep track of the passage of time with extraordinary precision.

    25 Feb 2015 | 9:00 pm
    (University of Malta) Wake up in the morning and stretch; your midsection narrows. Pull on a rubber band and it becomes thinner. One might assume that materials will always stretch and thin. Wrong. Thanks to their peculiar internal geometry, auxetic materials grow wider when stretched. After confounding scientists for decades, University of Malta researchers are now developing mathematical models to explain the unusual behavior of these logic-defying materials, unlocking applications from better skin grafts to new smart materials.

  • This takes the cake: To the audiophile, this $10,000 Ethernet cable apparently makes sense

    Wow. This is some seriously messed up language used to describe ‘premium-grade’ Audio Ethernet cables — yes, you read that right, Ethernet cables for the Audiophile market. My word… All insulation slows down the signal on the conductor inside. When insulation is unbiased, it slows down parts of the signal differently, a big problem for very time-sensitive multi-octave audio. AudioQuest’s DBS creates a strong, stable electrostatic field which saturates and polarizes (organizes) the molecules of the insulation. This minimizes both energy storage in the insulation and the multiple…

  • Net Neutrality May Face an Uphill Battle If History Tells Us Anything

    26 Feb 2015 | 9:34 am
    The Federal Communications Commission is scheduled to vote on a proposal today that effectively bars Internet companies from prioritizing some Internet traffic over others.As John Oliver famously explained "ending net neutrality would allow big companies to buy their way into the fast lane, leaving everyone else in the slow lane."The FCC's proposal faces plenty of opposition from telecom companies and others, but it's just the latest round in a long fight. Here is a brief history of attempts to enact net neutrality and the often successful push against it.To read this article in full or to…

    26 Feb 2015 | 4:02 pm
    The Senate Judiciary Committee unanimously voted today to make Google's former patent chief the director of the US Patent and Trademark Office. USPTO directors have come from the tech sector before—the last director, David Kappos, was a top lawyer at IBM. But Lee's appointment marks the first time someone with a background from an Internet-focused company will take the helm at USPTO. While she was at Google, Lee became one of the most outspoken corporate lawyers on the problem of "patent trolls" plaguing the system with their lawsuits. Comments

    Bjoern Negelmann and the Gartner Hype Curve of Social Business I wrote up 2 notes in our Agile Elephant Blog (over here and here) on the state of Social Business today, but here is a summary: In essence I buy Bjoern Negelmann's analysis at the Enterprise 2.0 Summit in Paris last week that it is in the Slough of Despond phase, and the only way is up (see picture above). This is confirmed in my view by the latest McKInsey report on the subfect, which essentially notes that it is here to stay, and more and more companies expect to expand its usage. I also think the fact that two "New New" memes…

    The British Army has resurrected the Chindits, one of the special force units used in WW2 to operate behind enemy lines - in their case to operate behind Japanese lines in Burma. It was formed by Brigadier Orde Wingate following a successful usage of Boer commando style tactics in the British/Commonwealth reconquest of Italian East Africa in 1940. The new Chindits are to fight behind the lines in the digital wars - Torygraph: ...the new unit's focus will be on "unconventional" non-lethal, non-military methods such as "shaping behaviours through the use of dynamic narratives", an Army…

The technology, which delivers news, messages and calls directly to a user’s field of view, has been on sale in the UK since June, and in the US since 2013. In a statement posted to its Google+ account, the company said the Glass team would move out of the “Google X” incubator labs and become a separate division.

(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).

    Back at the CES’15, Lenovo had showcased its Tab 2 A7-10 and Tab 2 A7-30 tablets. These were priced at $99 (approximately INR 6,300) and $129 (about INR 8,100) respectively and were designed to target the users looking for mid-range devices.

    WhatsApp is one of the most popular Instant Messenger (IM) in the world. It has approximately 700 million active users and this number keeps on increasing. There has been a lot of demand for the makers to introduce the calling feature as people have to use other services such as Viber, Skype, etc to do so. WhatsApp finally gave into this demand and has introduced the calling feature. A lot of users have been able to use this feature and also invite their friends. But it’s reported that the company has pulled down the feature as of now.   This is probably because it is in testing phase…

    Tim Cushing
    26 Feb 2015 | 9:00 pm
    More cities and states are getting behind the idea that outfitting their law enforcement officers with body cameras will result in better policing and more accountability. Unfortunately, many of them then follow this moment of clarity by gutting the "accountability" part of the programs. Los Angeles law enforcement agencies will only turn over camera footage if it's part of a criminal or civil suit. Florida legislators are pushing for additional exceptions in the state's open records laws specifically for body camera footage and specifically at the request of the state's police union.
  • DailyDirt: Keeping Information For A Really, Really, Really Long Time

    Michael Ho
    26 Feb 2015 | 5:00 pm
    The problem of storing digital data usually involves transferring data from an older format to a newer one -- with the hopes that the newer one won't be replaced as quickly as the older format it just replaced. Maybe some archivists out there like to go through this periodic technology shift and verify that the data we've stored is still readable, but wouldn't it be nice if there was a "store it and forget it" format? A single gram of DNA can store up to 455 exabytes of data, and roughly four grams of DNA could store all of the world's collected information. It's not cheap to store arbitrary…
  • Verizon At Least Shows It Has A Sense Of Humor About Net Neutrality, Even If It's Incapable Of Respecting It

    Karl Bode
    26 Feb 2015 | 3:40 pm
    Sure, Verizon may be endlessly misleading when it comes to everything from the spectrum crunch to network investment. And when it comes to anti-competitive telecom behavior it wrote the book. Hell, Verizon's even in many ways directly responsible for this week's net neutrality ruling by suing to overturn the original flimsy net neutrality rules -- rules every other ISP had absolutely no problem with. But while you can say a lot of things about Verizon, you can't say the company doesn't have a sense of humor. As you might expect, Verizon took to the company's blog to protest the FCC's new…

    Despite the feds' best efforts to keep IMSI catchers (Stingray devices, colloquially and almost certainly to the dismay of manufacturer Harris Corporation, as they head to becoming the kleenex of surveillance tech) a secret, there's still enough information leaking out around the edges of the FBI's non-disclosure agreements to provoke public discussion.

    Timothy Geigner
    26 Feb 2015 | 1:33 pm
    At some point, this whole fad of trademarking phrases that leap into the public consciousness through public events is going to have to stop. Between trying to lock the language of the recently slain, the foreign policy story du jour, and all the rest, eventually the public and the courts are going to have to realize that this can't go on unchecked. For some reason, professional and college sports organizations seem especially prone to this kind of nonsense, from the attempt to exert control over a colloquial term to a team simply treating its own fanbase like so much trademarkable chattle.

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?

Take Kustom, a new company (started in 2013) out of Spain. They’re announcing the availability of the Kustom Ego, although availability is a relative term here. Actually, before we start, let’s play a game where you try to guess the price of this phone as you read. Answer’s at the bottom. This 5″ smartphone runs Android 4.4 on a dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon processor and 2…

    25 Feb 2015 | 10:58 am
    It’s a good bet that this year, starting with Mobile World Congress next week, we’re going to see a lot more advertising dollars thrown at budget phones than we’re used to. Everyone excited to get in on mobile has already settled into their premium smartphones of choice—now, the mobile industry is going to turn its attention to everyone still sitting on the sidelines. The best way to do that is with low-priced, off-contract phones that lower the cost of entry to both device and, maybe more importantly, monthly wireless bills for smartphones. Motorola (now owned by Lenovo)…

    26 Feb 2015 | 8:36 am
    Fascinating inside scoop by WPCentral. According to them, there were very advanced talks between Microsoft and Pebble to come to a close partnership between the two companies. Microsoft built a fully functional Pebble application for Windows Phone with complete integration, offered to bundle Pebble devices with Windows Phone sales through Microsoft stores and carriers, and a whole lot more. All this was set to be announced at BUILD 2014. However, it did not come to pass. There is just one problem: Pebble founder and CEO Eric Migicovsky. Despite Microsoft's attempts to win over Pebble,…

  • The state of Linux gaming in the SteamOS era

    26 Feb 2015 | 8:05 am
    Now, more than a year into the SteamOS era (measuring from that beta launch), the nascent Linux gaming community is cautiously optimistic about the promise of a viable PC gaming market that doesn't rely on a Microsoft OS. Despite technical and business problems that continue to get in the way, Valve has already transformed gaming on Linux from "practically nothing" to "definitely something" and could be on the verge of making it much more than that. Progress has been amazing, and once Valve gets its SteamOS and Steam Machines, things should pick up even more.

The company said it will begin testing what it calls "sponsored" search results within its app store in the coming weeks. The move is intended to help developers better promote their apps in a store that boasts more than a million choices. Of course, it will also generate more revenue for Google. Application stores are already completely and utterly useless and broken for application discovery, so I couldn't care less about this.

    No doubt, there are hundreds of posts this morning in which bloggers are trying to explain the top 10 this or that’s about the episode of Modern Family that aired last night (“Connection Lost,” Season 6, Episode 16). For that reason, I haven’t read any blog posts regarding the show. If this sounds like I’m borrowing the observation of others, I’m actually not (this time, at least). I did read one review and it was insightful (unlike this post, perhaps). It’s written by Gwen Ihnat at AV Club. She calls the episode, “A gimmicky but successful…

The post I wrote three years ago, “Just Because You Can Make Money From Something, Doesn’t Mean You Should, and Other Rules of the Web,” was about Pinterest being accused of “skimming links” — the practice of finding links on their platform  that go to ecommerce sites and converting those…

    Occasionally (okay, frequently), people share with me their ideas for a new product or business. More times than not, the ideas are  clever.  But then I go all Debbie Downer1 on them and tell them that success rarely hinges on the idea. Execution, I say. It’s all about execution. And luck.

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.

    When you share any folder or file in Google Drive with someone, the shared links will work forever until you manually change the sharing permissions.

    17 Feb 2015 | 6:24 am
    Adblocking software like AdBlock Plus have become mainstream and now pose a significant threat to web businesses that are dependent on online advertisements. The problem is so severe that Google and Amazon are paying the writers of AdBlock Plus to whitelist their ads. This may be seen as some kind of extortion but with billions of dollars at stake, the advertising companies have chosen to take the more profitable route. It is estimated that ~5% of website visitors are blocking ads (PDF report) and the situation could be far worse for websites that have a more tech-savvy audience. If you are…

    Your mobile phones, tablets and laptops have rechargable Lithim Ion batteries that lose capacity as they age but with good care, the batteries may last for 2 to 3 years or even longer. What can you do to increase the overall lifespan of your gadget’s battery? Should you keep your mobile devices charged or wait for the charge to drop to 0% before charging them again?

    If you need to make changes in an existing PDF file, you need to get hold of the original document that was used to create the PDF, make the edits in the source document and export it as a PDF again. This is the best option since the document’s layout and formatting will be preserved in the new PDF file and you don’t even need an external PDF editor like Adobe Acrobat. However, if you do not have access to the source document, you can still edit your PDF files in the browser using the free Word app. It may not be able to handle PDF files with complex layouts, or PDFs that are…

  • D-Link remote access vulnerabilities remain unpatched

    26 Feb 2015 | 7:55 pm
    D-Link routers have several unpatched vulnerabilities, the worst of which could allow an attacker to gain total control over a device, according to a systems engineer in Canada.Peter Adkins, who does security research in his free time, released details of the flaws on Thursday. Adkins said in a phone interview that he has been in intermittent contact with D-Link since Jan. 11 on the issues, but the company has not indicated when it might patch.“I believe it’s probably better for the end user to know that these exist than be completely in the dark for months on end while the vendor…
  • Hackers exploit router flaws in unusual pharming attack

    26 Feb 2015 | 6:27 pm
    An email-based attack spotted in Brazil recently employed an unusual but potent technique to spy on a victim’s Web traffic.The technique exploited security flaws in home routers to gain access to the administrator console. Once there, the hackers changed the routers’ DNS (Domain Name System) settings, a type of attack known as pharming.Pharming is tricky to pull off because it requires access to an ISP’s or an organization’s DNS servers, which translate domain names into the IP addresses of websites. Those DNS systems are typically well-protected, but home routers often are…
  • They're official: 'Ride-share' and 'unboxing' added to Oxford dictionary

    Ride-hailing apps like Uber and Lyft looking to promote the “sharing” aspect of their service have scored a victory of sorts.’Ride-share’ is now a recognized verb, according to Oxford Dictionaries, which defines it as to “participate in an arrangement in which a passenger travels in a private vehicle driven by its owner, for free or for a fee, especially as arranged by means of a website or app.”The word was one of hundreds added in the last quarterly update to OxfordDictionaries.com, which is published by Oxford University Press.

    Data integration is a crucial part of every Big Data strategy. Data drives decisions. That piece of wisdom is often taken for granted, but businesses still seem to struggle with it. They continuously gather data, but rarely do they use it to its fullest potential. They track clicks on their websites and sensor readings from Internet of Things (IoT) devices that capture important customer buying behavior, geolocation data and other business-related information. Then they shovel it all into a data warehouse where web traffic and sales data and data from SaaS applications all have their own,…

    What is the value of social media as it relates to retail ROI? Is there a point in putting sharing buttons on my e-commerce website if I don’t know how that translates to actionable data regarding revenue? Everyone is doing things with respect to social, but in e-commerce, what is the point? Can I even truly attribute social data to return on investment? These are good and absolutely fair questions.

  • Why Customer Service is the Future of Social Marketing

    In 2006, social media was building steam in the United States. With the rise of Facebook’s popularity, the launch of Twitter, and the surge of influence from social news sites like Digg, social media looked to be a great breeding ground for marketers to make their mark. And make their marks they did. Digg was an incredibly powerful platform to drive traffic and pageviews to reasonably good content. Initially, the network really had the cream of the Internet crop on its frontpage, and the “Digg effect” would take websites down just like that. Visitors flocked to the homepage…

It requires a mindset of tuning into those communications, but because they come from so many different directions, it also requires a toolset. I won’t give it away, but after running a social media customer service department 100% singlehandledly and helping our customer base grow from about a half a million customers to over 1 million (through social media almost exclusively), I have a few tricks and tips up my sleeve.

    Within the last 6 weeks, I’ve begun to understand why Facebook is such a narcissistic medium. If you’re sad, no one wants to deal with you. They may give you support, but if every post was sad and depressing, that trickles down to how you ultimately end up feeling. If you’re controversial, someone else will have another opinion and unfriend you. Happiness (without ego) is the only way to maintain good friendships, and usually, doesn’t impart negative judgments. Let’s dig into the second item there: controversy. As of late, there’s been a pretty big trend…

The figure sold out in less than 15 minutes, and there are already eBay listings ranging up to $100 for the exclusive amiibo. Apparently Walmart stealthily opened pre-orders for the figures shortly after the news broke, meaning just about no one is going to be able to get their hands on yet another amiibo. This really can’t be the way Nintendo intended for this to work, and the cycle of collectible madness continues while people continue to take full advantage of the .

It’s hard to imagine that what started out as a product that most people at the time didn’t even understand why we’d need it, would become such a phenomenon that entire industries have been built upon. I of course like many of you begin to think back to the first version of Photoshop that I ever used. For me it was Photoshop 2.0.

    If you’re an owner, president, executive, or manager of any kind, there’s a powerful revenue growth action you can take.

  • 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.

    26 Feb 2015 | 7:25 pm
    Jenelle Evans was arrested yet again on Tuesday. The Teen Mom 2 star was arrested for driving without a license, which in comparison to her other run-ins with the law, is pretty minor. In fact, Jenelle Evans has previously been arrested for heroin possession, attacking her husband, stalking, harassment, breaking and entering, violating her restraining order, and assault. This time, she was only booked for driving while her license is suspended, but Jenelle Evans claims that she didn’t know about it. Jenelle Evans was booked into the J. Reuben Long Detention Center about 2 p.m. and bail…
  • Amanda Bynes On The Road To Normalcy?

    26 Feb 2015 | 7:01 pm
    Amanda Bynes just might be on her way to being normal again. The 28-year-old troubled starlet had it really rough last year. Amanda Bynes accused her father of molesting her, threatened to murder him, and was caught wandering around aimlessly and weirdly several times. Amanda Bynes, however, got some good news. Sort of. During a closed discussion on Tuesday, a Ventura County, California judge extended Amanda Bynes’ conservatorship order, which gave her parent’s control over her finances and medications, until a June court date. A photo posted by Amanda Bynes (@rlamandabynes) on…

    Google announced that it will be expanding its use of “mobile-friendliness” as a ranking signal beginning on April 21. That gives you a little less than two months to make sure your site fits the bill. The change will go into effect across all languages, and Google says it will have a “significant impact” in its search results. You know if Google is saying the impact is going to be “significant,” it’s probably not something to take lightly. As a result of the change, Google says users will find it easier to get relevant, high quality search results…

    Twitter has a big problem with abuse. Everyone knows this. The company’s CEO knows this. The management team at Twitter knows something has to be done about it. But what is Twitter going to do about all the abuse and harassment that takes place on the site? Incremental changes, for now. Twitter has just provided an update on safety features concerning abuse and harassment, claiming to be fielding many, many more abuse reports since it streamlined the reporting process late last year. On top of that, Twitter says it’s tripled the size of the team handling these abuse reports.

    As you may have heard, the FCC announced today that it has set rules on net neutrality and an open Internet, which it says “will protect free expression and innovation on the Internet and promote investment in the nation’s broadband networks.” Back in November, President Obama urged the FCC to reclassify Internet service under Title II of the Telecommunications Act, which would make it a utility, and the FCC has done so. Broadband is considered a telecommunications service, and providers are to be regulated. The FCC says in its announcement: The FCC has long been committed…

    One of the best things about an Android device is the customisations that it offers. And thanks to a very active developers community the things that come out from the closet codes are absolutely jaw-dropping at times and you feel suddenly the universe makes so much more sense. One such moment came in last evening when Microsoft announced a new keyboard that was specially designed for those who are addicted to Excel. As a numbers person, I use Excel a lot, be it on the computer or on the phone, barely a day goes by when I have not seen the vertical columns and horizontal rows come face to…

It was just a bit of common sense and you could tell with the timelines that Apple would be active around MWC to draw all the attention to itself, and that is exactly what has happened. The first week of March is all set to about MWC and the latest and greatest in the mobile world, but surely one event that everybody would now be looking forward to the most would be the announced Apple Press/ Media event on March 9th.

    Motorola has taken the wraps off the second generation of the Motorola Moto E. It was initially expected that the device will be announced somewhere in MWC but that hasn’t been the case. The first generation of Motorola Moto E had lead the wave of budget friendly smartphones in India and the world generally. It was the device that prompted devices like Micromax Unite 2, RedMi 1s and several others which forged their way in the sub Rs 7,000 category. The new Moto E is as expected an iterative design rather than a brand new design from ground up. There are heavy cues from the existing…

    Sony intentionally or unintentionally gave away that the Xperia Z4 tablet is going to be hitting the markets soon. And by soon we mean, it is pretty much confirmed in the leak that the tablet is set for a March 3 launch. While none of the leaks usually give out an exact date this one does. The news comes after it was spotted on Sony’s Official Lounge app, the listing of the tablet. The captured screenshot only tells that the tablet will be equipped with a 2K display and nothing other than it would come with Blazing Fast processor, which let us be honest is not much to brag about.

  • 5 Reasons why Wireless Charging Never Caught on

    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…

    With new smartphone recycling websites coming up everyday, it can be very confusing as to where to sell your smartphone for the best possible deal and get the most money. To get the maximum possible price, where you choose to sell your smartphone becomes very important. It often depends on a number of factors like timing of sale, local demand, type and model of your device, and the age factor.

With new features like SmartLock and automatic encryption, proponents claim that Android phones are now completely safe from any type of data theft.

    By now, it’s clear: Cloud computing isn’t going anywhere. In fact, recent surveys indicate that just about 90 percent of all companies are using some form of cloud service, most often for storage. However, some small businesses are still hesitant to make the leap to the cloud, for various reasons. Security concerns are at the forefront of most entrepreneur’s minds; the consequences of a security breach can be devastating to a small business, so many simply opt to keep all functions in-house.

Despite of so many DVD rippers available today in the market, most of them are often too clumsy or take too long time to convert DVDs to supported video formats. Even if you manage to save some of those DVDs on to your hard drive (which will not be an easy task, given that most of the movies come in copy-protected DVDs now-a-days), playing them on your iOS devices via iTunes may not be as easy because of the number of tracks, sub-title files and folder structure of the DVD.

This was reported to be the reasons why Samsung chose to abandon the company’s chipset. However, Samsung’s ulterior motive was to incorporate its own Exynos 7420 SoC and loose Qualcomm’s grip on the market.

DexCom, a medical technology company, has developed the FDA approved app that will do the job. The app will work with a tiny sensor called the CGM that is needed to be embedded under the skin.

By doing this, the South Korean phone giant’s chips will be able to put up a colossal fight against the leading mobile chipmaker in the world, which is currently dominating with a 68 percent market share (according to an October 2014 report).

    Motorola has finally announced the launch and availability of the much awaited “Moto E 2015″ or you can term it as “2nd generation MOTO E“. The New Moto E is the successor to Moto E that was launched back in May, 2014 in India. The 2015 version of Moto E is introduced with a 4G LTE variant as well besides the 3G model. The new Moto E packs significant improvements over its predecessor, specially the 4G version that features a better processor. Design wise, it looks pretty similar to older version but now comes with interchangeable colored bands and newer Grip shells…

    NILLKIN is a popular Chinese company that deals in mobile accessories such as mobile cases, covers, tempered glass screen protectors, flip covers, screen guards and frosted matte hard cases for smartphones. Apparently, Nillkin accessories are widely available in India through eCommerce site like eBay, Flipkart, Amazon India, Snapdeal, etc. but they don’t have an official retail channel in India. Nillkin products are priced pretty high and thus other companies in China tend to manufacture fake aka counterfeit copy of Nillkin products, available at a much lesser price. Although, one…

  • NYT vs Buzzfeed: Valuations Discrepancies – Part II

    Frédéric Filloux
    22 Feb 2015 | 11:39 am
      by Frédéric Filloux My last column about new valuations in digital media triggered an abundance of comments. Here are my responses and additions to the discussion.  The most revealing part of argument used by those who tweeted (800 of them), commented or emailed me, is how many wished things to remain simple and segregated: legacy vs. native media, content producers vs. service providers, ancestral performances indicators and, of course, the self-granted permission to a certain category of people to decide what is worthy. Too bad for cartesian minds and simplifiers, the digital…

      by Jean-Louis Gassée [Update appended] Beside free publicity, and huge amounts of it, the putative Apple Car raises interesting questions about car manufacturing, the future of automobiles, and the part that an interloper such as Apple could play in this century-old industry.  The volume of comments and Twitter traffic in reaction to last week’s Monday Note, The Fantastic Apple Car, was just one small rivulet in this week’s gusher of rumors, jokes, and proclamations about Apple becoming a car manufacturer. Bloomberg takes the car as fait accompli, telling us that “Apple…is…

      by Jean-Louis Gassée Apple’s most recent quarterly numbers broke all sorts of records and, as we shall see, a number of laws. Apple just released its numbers for the quarter ending last December, the first quarter of its 2015 Fiscal Year. The figures are astonishing: iPhones:  Apple sold 74.5M, + 57% over last year’s same quarter. iPhone revenue was $51.2B, + 57%. That’s enough iPhones for 1% of the world population, 9.4 iPhones for every second of the past quarter. I hope to see some day a documentary movie on the supply chain heroics leading (parts manufacturing,…

Being positive somehow becomes harder especially when you know that for each piece of happiness you find, one wrong move can make it all go away. However, you should also remember that bad things happen everyday, even to the best kinds of people. This is why you only have two choices: stay negative and brace yourself for the bad that’s going to happen or be positive and sail through the bad things with less drama. 1. Find the good in the bad.

Improper payments include incorrect payment amounts, miscoding, non-covered services including those that are not reasonable and necessary, and duplicate services.

It’s important to know the facts. Many young adults are putting off buying health insurance through the exchange and think they would be better off paying the penalty of $95 a year or 1% of their income (whichever is higher).

    Right down to business, let’s talk about the top five reasons I personally see to skip Windows 8, and go direct to Windows 10. Through a ton of exposure to numerous IT firms during my time as a ConfigMgr admin and Solutions Engineer, I see the path ahead and it is not Windows 8 for most organizations. This advice should be taken in context of course, as this mindset applies to the greater audience of enterprise IT and not your trendy tech firm stocked with people who build their own PCs on a regular basis. Oh, and if you are reading this and asking yourself the question “is 1E on Windows…
  • Energy cost are dropping, should we care about PC Power Management anymore?

    Simon Rust
    20 Feb 2015 | 2:42 am
    Recently, the cost of oil has dropped significantly (presently under US$50 per barrel – by way of comparison, the same barrel was over US$100 during the summer of 2014) and as a direct result we are seeing the costs associated with the provision of energy to homes and businesses drop. So, given that we are automatically getting cheaper energy provision, do we really need to care about PC power management? The answer of course is usually “it depends” but typically businesses are not just targeting themselves on their direct operating costs, but also other measurements such as their…

It is one of the major reasons I came here and why I am very proud to call 1E my professional home and extended family (no, seriously).  However, one of the things I remember from back in my CM admin days was the 1E which supplied free tools and wondered why they were gone and it seems I was not alone in this quandary.  I understood after interacting internally here that this was not just a simple a change within 1E, but a change in the CM community…

  • Big photos - size matters?

    6 Feb 2015 | 8:59 pm
    You've probably noticed that I use some pretty big photos on each blog post here. That should mean big file sizes - but it doesn't have to. When you take a high resolution digital photo and simply resize it for your web site you are NOT compressing it. Or if you are, then you are probably not compressing it as much as you could be. Lets take the photo on this post as an example. The original photo from http://unsplash.com is 720kb and 2511 × 1671 pixels. I only need an image that is 790 x 420 so I will use Preview on my mac to resize and crop it. Now the image is only 85kb. That's great but…
  • Increase the screen resolution on your Macbook

There were always too many things that I couldn't do on the front end that meant I was forever switching between the two. Editing your site can be hard I get it that people don't want to be bothered with the complex interface of the administrator and prefer to edit their content in place. This has been possible for a very long time in Joomla for content items but not for modules. So you still needed to switch to the admin interface to edit…

    A friend of mine’s son recently returned from an extended absence which basically removed him from nearly all aspects of technology, including the Internet, for a bit longer than 5 years.

To be fair, the guy grew up in an Internet world, with access to online resources including Facebook, Twitter, and other social applications. The interesting part of his re-introduction to the “wired” world was watching the comprehension flashes he…

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”   Risk management should follow a structured process acknowledging…

  • Redefining WAN in Light of Cloud

    Tracy Corbo
    17 Feb 2015 | 6:32 am
    Thanks in large part to investor-driven demand for constant double-digit growth, the WAN optimization market has taken a substantial beating, and as a result the term “WAN optimization” has become something of a lament. Vendors looking to distance themselves from the term have latched onto the “software-defined” bandwagon, and the result is “SDN WAN” or “SD WAN.” However, the need for WAN optimization is not going away; in fact, it is only going to increase because the WAN is a critical component of cloud-based deployment models. Cloud is not a magic fix for all that ails IT.

    Have you ever tried to create a major slide presentation on a tablet? Or edit a large spreadsheet? Or write a long document? Probably not. While it’s certainly possible to perform more substantial business tasks on a tablet, the small screen real estate and limited system resources (e.g., processing speed, memory, graphic support, etc.) are typically insufficient in current tablet form factors. However, carrying a laptop around with you everywhere you go just so you can access email is not very practical either. The reality is that we live in a multi-device world where the average worker…

    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…

Even the simplest and most “personal” of them, like personal planners, address books and to-do lists, enable users to put their data in the cloud, share them with others and access them using a myriad of devices and interfaces. The bottom line is that every one of them needs a back-end and an API to talk to. All projects are executed through tight cooperation between back-end…

When a project is small you can manage to find a workaround, but for a huge, high risk project the situation is different. The client wants to know what he gets for his money, while in fact he cannot really specify his needs in sufficient detail. Having adopted Agile working principles years ago, at a certain moment we had to face this challenge. And it just appeared to be like Nelson Mandela once said:…
  • Poland? I can see some changes for the better

    Peter Horsten
    30 Jan 2015 | 7:58 am
    How do you like Poland? What do you think about Polish people? – these are the questions any foreigner living in Poland or staying here for a while has to answer, sooner or later. What do I, a Dutchman living in Gdańsk, think about Poland? Some weeks ago I was interviewed by Wyborcza.pl, one of the leading news papers in Poland. This post is a translation of the original article which can be found here. Ewa Karendys: You moved to Gdańsk due to your wife, who is Polish. How did you first meet? Peter Horsten: I came to Gdańsk in April 1995 for a week-long trip organised by the faculty I…
  • Is it time to open your own online store?

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

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

    I have been thinking of doing this for a long time. Actually I plan to extend it to 100 books that I think are a good foundation for anyone to read in order to have a more rounded, more able, and most of all a more independent way of thinking than just unconsciously going along with the greater reactive biomass that is carefully being shaped by TV and other mass media, including this here Internet. Just to be clear then, my criteria for whether a book makes it into my top 100 is primarily based on the practical, real effect it has on you awakening from the dreary, matrix-like slumber induced…

    You know the steps to startup fundraising: Target potential investors Get warm introductions Set up tons of meetings Get serious with a handful of prospects Make your pitch Negotiate your terms Sign term sheets Voila, you’re funded! While this seems straightforward, in reality the process is much more fraught. In the best case, getting funded can take months, and in the worst, you might end your quest without a single signed term sheet. Oh, and have I mentioned that it’s a full-time job? Physical endurance is one thing, but how do you prepare yourself for the mental and emotional toll?

A recent study of IT professionals reported that over 30% of their workplace environment is virtualized. We’ve even created an acronym for these kinds of services: software as a service (SAAS). Usually, a company provides subscription based access to subscribers allowing these subscribers to use software in the cloud. The software itself is hosted by a third party, SAAS service provider, which is responsible for maintaining software or hardware associated with the application. Overall, there…

    When I was a kid, I thought by 2015 we would be flying around in cars like The Jetsons.  It appears we aren’t there just yet, despite my wish for us to be flying around by now!  However, we have come a long way in powering vehicles. We have all seen many new hybrids and electric vehicle alternatives come out from a variety of manufactures and certainly seen their acceptance grow, especially as we saw gas prices increase over the last five years. This is coupled with the growing desire of the general public to be more “green.”  But, is the future of automotive electric or hydrogen?

    Our overnight idea screening tool, Ideas Overnight, has become a big hit with our clients. Since launching in March of 2014, over 30 clients in the US have used the tool to expedite and improve their innovation process. Interestingly, we still receive the occasional question of whether or not idea screening is a “validated” tool. Clients who aren’t quantitatively screening their ideas want to know whether or not idea screening can predict later concept scores (and, by extension, success in the market). I’ll admit that I have often taken this for granted as the typical non-quantitative…

    In my day-to-day work focusing on product development and product testing related issues, it’s always interesting to see that some of the seemingly most basic questions are the ones that are the most difficult. One of the struggles I’ve witnessed most recently is the struggle to identify the “right” competitive benchmark, whether the objective is to innovate or renovate. There are numerous trends impacting or fundamentally changing our ability to identify that one key competitor.

Truth be told, the level of information obtained from diaries is invaluable as it allows for an intimate glimpse into not only why respondents rate products and services the way they do, but also how those ratings might influence purchase decisions in the future. But, admittedly, capturing diary insights can be a bit cumbersome. Respondents are typically asked to record their behaviors and…

    iPhone and Mac owners, prepare to be politically correct. Apple has released a new set of racially diverse emoji on the iOS and OS X betas. Those who are on the beta OSes have reportedly seen a new set of emoji. By pressing and holding any of the human faces / body parts in the People section of the emoji picker, a popup with an additional set of skin tones emerge. There are six new skin tones, ranging from black to bright yellow. Now aren’t you glad you can send that racially accurate happy faced emoji? Besides the skin tones, Apple has also updated iPhone emoji with the more recent…

    The 10inch Quantum Q-Wave is an Android tablet from BDL, one of the established IT players in the region. With the Q-Wave, we wanted to see if BDL can match its IT sales and marketing prowess with the kind of innovation that makes a tablet stand out in a tight mobility market.DesignFrom the get go, the Q-Wave feels like a solidly-built machine, on the heavy side but not bulky. The unit I had in my possession had silver back with a black strip on the top.The black strip reveals a panel under which the slots for a dual SIM set up and SD card are located.

    Apple Pay is a revolutionary payment system. I have used it a couple of times since it has launched and just love the way it has been implemented. It works just as it was shown in the keynote. You basically bring your iPhone close to the payment terminal which is waiting for payment and your cards stored in the passbook will automagically appear on your screen. If you have your finger already on the Touch ID, it would just go ahead and authorize the payment with your default card. The little chime and a subtle vibration in addition to the short animation on the screen let you know that the…

    Setu
    21 Sep 2014 | 9:16 am
    If you are making a FaceTime call on your brand new iPhone 6, and the other party is not able to hear you properly, it is quite likely that you have not taken the plastic wrap off the phone. The noise cancellation microphone between the camera and the flash is covered with the plastic wrap on a new iPhone 6. This causes the iPhone’s noise canceling algorithm to malfunction when you make a FaceTime call (or any call with the speakerphone on). In order to fix this issue, just take the plastic wrap off, or, if you don’t want to take it off until you get a case (totally understandable), use a…

    Searching for medical information on Google is a uniquely terrifying experience. You never know how reliable anything you find is, but along the way you manage to convince yourself you have everything from dengue fever to diphtheria. As a self-diagnosis tool the internet ranks somewhere between a ouija board and asking grandma. Google has apparently decided to change that—or at least, take one major step in the right direction.

You focus on creating posts that are truly valuable to your readers, that solve problems or offer resources. Now: how do you get people to read them?

  • AdWords’ New Strategy: Call Me Maybe?

    Andre Sólo
    24 Feb 2015 | 9:08 am
    Would you be willing to pay for an online ad that doesn’t take customers to your website? For many businesses the answer is apparently “yes,” at least if that ad puts them in touch with you by phone instead. That’s the idea behind the newest type of Google AdWords ad, the “call-only” ad. Call-only ads appear in mobile search results. They look like normal ads, but tapping on them doesn’t take the user to your website. Instead it shows your number and prompts them to tap to call you. In other words, it funnels toward phone instead of web.

  • How to Make Your Site Load Faster (And Get More Business)

    Andre Sólo
    18 Feb 2015 | 1:30 am
    We’ve talked before about how important site speed is. A website that loads slowly gets downgraded by Google’s search algorithm, meaning you drop behind competitors in the rankings. And a slow site speed can also be bad on the human front: if your page takes a few seconds to display, users may take that opportunity to click over to another open tab, check their phone, or get up to refresh their coffee. There’s no guarantee they’ll ever come back to looking at your site. As it turns out, page speed now matters on a third front: the effectiveness of pay per click ads.

    The entire internet lost its cool on Thursday night when a Tumblr user posted a picture of a dress along with the caption"guys please help me - is this dress white and gold, or blue and black? Me and my friends can’t agree and we are freaking the f**k out." Here's what that dress looked like, in case you haven't seen it yet. It turns out that the rest of the internet couldn't decide on which two colors the dress was, either.

Different people apparently perceive the dress differently.  I see the dress as white and gold. However, Google has told me I was wrong.  When I plugged the picture of the dress into Google images, the "visually similar images" identified by the search engine were all dresses that were very clearly in various shades of blue. According to Google, the company's image search engine uses "computer vision technology" to…

  • Nvidia’s CEO finally addresses GeForce GTX 970 VRAM catastrophe

    The Sorcerer
    25 Feb 2015 | 8:43 pm
    Share This: Even though it months since GTX 970’s launch, there haven’t been any clear and official response from Nvidia. In time, post-GTX 960’s launch, slowly information came out via other review sources that there is indeed an issue with the last 0.5GB VRAM. The stuttering phenomenon was explained eventually, but it didn’t really sink in with people as Nvidia took many months to correct the technical information that was passed through the reviewers, including the block diagram that reviewers usually get with their reviewer’s guide. But Nvidia CEO Jen-Hsun…

    Share This: At first, Intel was supposed to launch its next generation desktop CPU ‘Skylake’ within Q2, 2015. But now the chipmaking giant pushed its schedule back to August 2015, along with the 100 series chipset that will accompany the desktop CPU launch.The source came to know via Taiwan-based motherboard manufacturers. This would also affect shipping and production for Haswell-refresh and Broadwell-U based hardware. But it is said that companies will unveil 100-series motherboards in Computex 2015. The delay for Skylake’s delay isn’t clear. While in such situations…

However, it seems that there is no solution to address this issue in India. Such was the case with a user in Kolkata who faced stuttering issues with his Zotac GTX 970 in SLI, while playing in 4K. When the user contacted Zotac, the company ultimately directed him towards Nvidia as this was the issue with the GPU core and not the card. The user contacted me, and upon my recommendation he posted the entire story and the…

According to the lawsuit, the individual Andrew Ostrowski alleged that Nvidia and Gigabyte misleaded its customers by resorting to misleading advertising, unfair and deceptive business practices. As of now, there is a demand for Jury Trial. The lawsuit specifically points out that initially it was advertised with 64 ROPs, but later it was corrected as 56 ROPs which may…

I was also had a conversation with a friend about the rating system and that pretty much made up my mind. Most review websites in India post vague reviews that don’t talk a lot in detail- mainstream websites and magazines, blogs and even forums. In fact, the same lot do not have any benchmark graphs or list their test setup properly, let alone list the tests that they’re doing.

    Looking for a way to convert your laptop or desktop into a wireless router? You may find yourself in a situation where there isn’t a wireless router around for everyone to connect to. If only one computer is connected to a cable or DSL modem, you can convert that computer into a router or wireless router, if the computer has a wireless card.

    Need to find or check the current BIOS version on your laptop or desktop computer? The BIOS or UEFI firmware is the software that comes installed on your PC motherboard by default and that detects and controls the built-in hardware including hard drives, video cards, USB ports, memory, etc. Whether you need to update the BIOS or not is something I’ve written about previously and the basic premise of that article was not to update unless you really have a specific need to.

    Most people probably don’t care, but the default time display in Windows is 12 hour format, not military time. However, for all of the people who routinely tell time using the military time format, being able to change it on their computers can prove to be very useful.

    20 Feb 2015 | 5:00 am
    Have you ever been working in Windows and ended up with a program freezing and causing the all your desktop icons to disappear? In most cases everything disappears, including the Start button and taskbar. Normally in order to get out of this situation, you have to restart your computer and hope that whatever caused Windows to crash goes away. The icons can be missing from your desktop for two reasons: either something has gone wrong with the explorer.exe process, which handles the desktop, or the icons are simply hidden. Usually it’s an explorer.exe problem if the entire taskbar…

    Boeing and the Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) have carried out tests of the Joint Direct Attack Munition Extended Range (JDAM-ER), which showed a three-times increase in range while maintaining accuracy. The add-on guidance kit for bombs was put through its paces at Australia's Woomera Test Range, where the 500-lb (227 kg) ordnance was dropped by RAAF F/A-18 Classic Hornets from altitudes ranging from 40,000 ft (12,190 m) down to 10,000 ft (3,048 m). ..

Provided with only the same inputs as a human player and no previous real-world knowledge, DQN uses reinforcement learning to learn new games, and in some cases, develop new strategies. Its designers argue that this kind of general learning algorithm can crossover into discovery making in other fields. ..

    The United States Federal Communications Commission (FCC) today voted 3-2 to uphold the principles of network neutrality – that is, to force Internet Service Providers (ISPs) to treat all web traffic as equal. This prevents ISPs from being able to throttle or block users' connections to certain websites, or to offer "Internet fast lanes" whereby large websites could pay for their content to be delivered at a higher speed. Open Internet advocates see this as a huge step to protect the internet's current status as a free and open platform that offers equal opportunities to small and large…

    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…

    Digital audio is a topic that comes up quite frequently among computer users, and for good reason. There are enthusiasts who think nothing of buying the very best equipment and everyday users whose only consideration is audibility. Of course, there also exists the group which did not know it wanted to know about audio quality.Files are generally assessed on their bitrate. A 320kbps MP3 is obviously better than a 128kbps version, right? Ordinarily, yes. But it’s not hard to bluff the bitrate and mislead listeners through “upscaling.” In fact, upscaling can sometimes damage…

  • Ubuntu Linux 15.04 Vivid Vervet Beta 1 is here! Which flavor will you savor?

    Brian Fagioli
    26 Feb 2015 | 8:51 pm
    Ubuntu is one of, if not the best, Linux distributions for beginners. Why? It is easy to install and easy to learn. In other words, it is not a daunting affair like some other distros. With that said, it is a great Linux-based operating system for experts too. As great as Ubuntu is, the Unity desktop environment isn't for everyone. Today, the first betas of Ubuntu 15.04 are made available, and Unity is nowhere to be found. As is customary lately, it is only the other desktop environments, or flavors, that get to shine for beta testers. Which flavor of Ubuntu 15.04 Vivid Vervet Beta 1 will you…

    The Net Neutrality debate has been rumbling on for quite some time now, but today something of a milestone has been reached. After the campaign gained the support of President Obama, Twitter, and many others, today was the Federal Communications Commission vote on a number of proposals put forward by chairman Tom Wheeler. It is a victory for Net Neutrality and a great step towards ensuring that the internet remain open and free from controls by companies or government. The policy states, among other things, that ISPs may not charge for prioritization of web traffic. The vote was far from…
  • Google cheapens Android Play Store -- sells top app search spots to highest bidder

    Brian Fagioli
    26 Feb 2015 | 10:29 am
    Not everything has to be monetized. In business, the goal is profits, true, but that is not the sole reason for existence. The money is earned by the hard work of employees, and relationships built with customers. If you have no customers, you have no profits -- never forget that. If a company takes advantage of customer trust and the overall relationship, the customers may become fatigued to the practices. This brings us to Google. It is a company that is near and dear to our hearts. The world is a better place because of the search giant and its offerings. With that said, the company and…

  • Agile versus waterfall development: The case for agile

    Alok Sinha
    26 Feb 2015 | 9:39 am
    Agility and flexibility are top of mind when it comes to delivering IT projects. With that being the case, the traditional waterfall development approach, which requires each step of a project to be completed before the IT team can move onto the next, seems a bit outdated. Enter the agile development technique. This iterative development method should be the go-to today. It's based on collaboration and continuous development, and differs from the waterfall approach in that it can be characterized as being adaptive rather then predictive. Essentially, with agile, the requirements gathering,…

But, realizing that vision requires transmitters that are powerful enough to broadcast to devices dozens of yards away but energy-efficient enough to last for months — or even to harvest energy from heat or mechanical vibrations. A key challenge is designing these circuits with extremely low standby…

  • MIT's new drug-delivering nanogel can be injected instead of requiring surgery.

    20 Feb 2015 | 3:30 am
    Scientists are interested in using gels to deliver drugs, because they can be molded into specific shapes and designed to release their payload over a specified time period. However, current versions are not always practical, because they must be implanted surgically. To help overcome that obstacle, MIT chemical engineers have designed a new type of self-healing hydrogel that could be injected through a syringe. Such gels can carry one or two drugs at a time. They are useful for treating cancer or heart disease. This nanogel can change shape when applying stress to it, and it can re-heal when…

      Il popolo italiano, statistiche alla mano, si può considerare come uno di quelli che muovono maggiormente le dita per messaggiare e comunicare con i dispositivi mobili.

    Il nuovo Google Maps è stato reso pubblico da qualche tempo, con delle numerose novità. Una delle più interessanti è la modalità innovativa con la quale è stato introdotto, che aumenta la realistica visione della mappa che stiamo vedendo. Ma alcuni preferiscono ancora la modalità classica. Perché? A parte le persone che vogliono rimanere fedeli, ci sono quelle che hanno difficoltà a navigare nella nuova modalità in modo fluido, riscontrando scatti e blocchi.

  • Disabilitare Recall e Chiamami di Vodafone

    Gio Tuzzi
    22 Feb 2015 | 1:17 am
    Dallo scorso mese di luglio, Vodafone ha provveduto ad apportare un notevole rincaro ai servizi Recall e Chiamami, che sono diventati a pagamento. E non costano nemmeno poco, visto che portano via automaticamente dal credito personale sei centesimi di euro ogni giorno in cui vengono utilizzati tali servizi, mentre in caso di non utilizzo nessun costo sarà addebitato all’utente. Nel caso in cui non si avesse intenzione di adempiere a questi costi aggiuntivi, allora il consiglio migliore è quello di provvedere alla loro disattivazione, in modo tale da non veder scemare il proprio credito…

    Guest Blog Post by Robert Dupont of the excellent social media marketing blog #SMMGuide. By now, it’s no secret that many people—from mom bloggers to celebrities to politicians—have acquired a portion of their social media following by simply purchasing it. Last year, there was a brief media outrage when it was reported thatHillary Clinton had bought Twitter followers, much to the delight of her adversaries who were quick to condemn the former First Lady for her “immoral” behavior.Now that the public has had some time to reflect on this revelation, what should we make of this…

There’s no clear way for many to understand the true volume of app store searchesfor any particular keyword, and competition across verticals is proliferating daily.

  • How to Offer Free Checkouts to Promote Your Product

    Ray
    24 Feb 2015 | 1:21 pm
    There are some serious problems with measuring IO performance of all flash arrays with what we use on disk storage systems. Mostly, these are due to the inherent differences between current flash- and disk-based storage. NAND garbage collection First off, garbage collection is required by any SSD or NAND storage to be able to write data. Garbage collection coalesces free space by moving non-modified data to new pages/blocks and freeing up the space held by old, no-longer current data. The problem is NAND garbage collection takes place only after a suitable amount of write activity and…

VVOLs queue depth problem? One performance problem from my perspective is that all VVOL FC IO is now funeled through a single Protocol Endpoint (PE) LUN for a single storage system. There may be some potential queue depth issues, but Satyam and Howard both said that queue depths have been greatly increased over the last decade or so and this shouldn’t be a…

I am sure even if you have not used any of the existing container technologies, you must have at least read or heard about them. 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. In the process, I wish to help my readers as well.

  • Confessions of a Technology Profiler

    Joe Kinsella
    8 Feb 2015 | 2:52 pm
    After years of being in the closet, I'm coming clean: I'm a technology profiler. In my never ending search for good engineers, I instinctively form opinions of the quality of someone's software talent based on nothing more than what I see in their profile. It's like a facial tic I can't get rid of. For example, you say: "I write ASP.NET code to SQL Server in a big company", and I think: "No freaking way can you build complex software in a fast moving startup." Or you say: "I'm writing the multi-threaded backend of a cloud-based distributed system in a startup using Haskell", and I think:…

But there is a fundamental truth of hiring that often gets lost in traditional job descriptions: great engineers are not defined by their degree, number of years experience, or the technologies they work with - but by their core abilities / traits.

    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…

    Lots of people are talking about the Superfish malware debacle. People are starting to understand just how bad this situation is. What I haven’t seen so far why venture capitalists would have backed such a startup. Superfish investors, board members and advisors include Andrea Stavopouslos (Draper Fisher Jurvestson), Abe Finkelstein (Vintage Investment Partners), Anat Segal (Xenia Venture Capital), Shai Saul (DFJ again) and others. The company has raised a total of nearly $20 million in venture capital, from people I interact with all the time. Superfish tells the world they’re a…

    I finally got around to trying out Circle today. Boy it’s bad. Particularly for a company that has raised $26 million. This is a space we’re interested in at CrunchFund, and are looking for who might be the breakout winners. Circle is supposed to be a dead simple Bitcoin wallet and money transfer service. But here’s my experience: 1. I created an account and tried to add my bank account and credit card to deposit money into the system (as Bitcoin). I had to give a lot of personal information. And I had to take a photo of my drivers license. And then I had to take a selfie.

I read most of my books on my iPhone 6 plus now. Before that was an iPad. I also listen to audio books in the car and on walks. But sometimes it takes me months to finish a book in the car @ 13-20 hours of audio, and whatever book I’m listening to there in the car is of course a different book than the one…

    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…

  • Best device for Online Gaming with Slots!

    Rahul Banker
    12 Feb 2015 | 1:52 am
    Slots have been around since the 19th century, though the earlier versions were much more primitive compared to the games you can play today. Originating in New York, the game was invented when Sittman and Pitt created a type of gambling drum that consisted of a lever and 50 card faces. The players would pay one nickel to place their bets and when the drum stopped spinning, the outcome was based on poker hands. Winners would receive a payout in the form of drinks, merchandise and food. No money was awarded to players and so although the game gained some fans, it didn’t explode on to the…

    Renee Schmidt

    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…

Whilst Samsung does not name the company or companies that to which it send the audio recordings, Nuance is one likely contender as it provides voice-recognition and analysis to a number of technology companies, including possibly Apple’s Siri.

    A new Snowden leak a few days ago revealed that the NSA and GCHQ conducted a complex hack operation that focused on obtaining the secure encryption keys that protect mobile communications in devices with SIM cards.
