    This may not go down well with every Bell & Ross devotees, but here it is, the BR-X1 Skeleton Chronograph, Bell & Ross’ sporty and futuristic take of the iconic BR-01. Inspired by the aeronautical flight instrument of the 21st century fighter airplanes, the BR-X1 retains the signature square design which so many have copied but failed, and unfortunately or not, that’s about the only similarity this new kid has with its forebears. The futuristic look blend with the signature square design may not be everyone’s cuppa, but it is still quite a looker (note: we said…

  • Amazon Fire Phone Flops

    23 Oct 2014 | 2:50 pm
     Given that Amazon was tanking the price of the Fire Phone down to 99 cents two months after launch (leading to many a “Fire sale!” joke), this probably won’t come as much of a surprise: the Fire Phone isn’t a success. On the Amazon earnings call today, Amazon noted that the company was taking a $170 million dollar writedown “primarily related” to… Read More

     Amazon reported lower than expected revenue in its third quarter, and a larger than expected loss. Analysts expected the company to lose $0.74 on revenue of $20.84 billion. Instead, Amazon lost $0.95 per share on revenue of $20.58 billion. That per-share loss works out to a net loss for the firm of $437 million. Read More

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.

Since then, I have been doing so as often as I can. Here are all my superstar interviews. When I first decided to try to reach these people, I set my goals quite high and even made myself laugh at the thought of ever accomplishing the goal of meeting and/or interviewing the Woz. Well, it took me all those years but then a few months back, I managed to land my Woz interview. That is old news though, so why am I telling you this?

    Between Oct. 17, when he arrived back in New York City from West Africa, and Oct. 23, when he tested positive for Ebola, Dr. Craig Spencer "did attempt to self-isolate," officials said at a press conference Thursday. "He was being mindful about contact with people," said Dr. Mary Travis Bassett, the city's health commissioner. "Our impression is that he spent most of his time inside his apartment." But not all of it Over that week, Spencer also rode three subway lines, took an Uber car, visited a park and attended a bowling party with friends. He wasn't exhibiting symptoms at the time —…

But here's a quick primer GamerGate kicked off when an independent game developer's ex-boyfriend wrote a 9,000-word screed about their relationship, accusing her of trading sex for favorable press coverage and other career boosts. This was false. But the rage around it coalesced into a hashtag, created by actor and conservative commentator Adam Baldwin. That…

    We've written plenty about the City of London Police and its Police Intellectual Property Crime Unit (PIPCU), which despite an official jurisdiction covering a square mile of London, has made it clear that it considers itself Hollywood's private police force worldwide when it comes to stopping copyright infringement online. PIPCU has basically been a bumbling, censoring mess from the beginning. A year ago, it started ordering domain registrars to kill off websites with no court order and no legal basis -- demands that actually violated ICANN's policies. For registrars that ignored those…

    While the NFL isn't necessarily great at preserving its own historical footage in sum total, the fact is that the league makes a great deal of money by selling copies of game footage and interviews from seasons since past. Recently, three former players opted out of a settlement the league had agreed to in a class action case and decided to pursue their own rewards for the NFL's use of old game footage and interviews. Their theory is that the league violated their publicity rights. Their theory is wrong. Now, thanks to the First Amendment and two other reasons, U.S. District Judge Paul…

  • Judge: The Supreme Court Has Said Aereo Must Die, So Go Die

    This isn't a huge surprise, given Judge Alison Nathan's recent comments during the Aereo hearing, but Judge Nathan has now basically granted the networks what they want -- a pretty broad injunction (pdf) against Aereo. Judge Nathan doesn't buy the "okay, the Supreme Court said we looked like a duck, so now we'll pay like a duck" argument. To begin with, Aereo's argument suffers from the fallacy that simply because an entity performs copyrighted works in a way similar to cable systems it must then be deemed a cable system for all other purposes of the Copyright Act.

I had wondered if anyone would actually take him up on it. There's at least one. The good folks over at The Verge have remixed the Supreme Court's hearings on Aereo, and it's pretty damn entertaining. They even make use of the shot of "Dog" Justice Alito humping "Dog" Justice Kagan. Nicely…

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

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

I finally decided on running my first 5K race, the inaugural Father’s Day 5K 10K Race in Ventura on June 15. This race had a couple of appealing aspects – it had a beach cruiser giveaway and the course happens to be on one of my favorite training routes. I also liked the idea of doing a 5K run to determine my “5K pace” which is helpful for planning workouts. For example, if I’m doing a certain type of interval run I can determine the pace based on an actual 5K…

This was my first of hopefully many trail races and it was a bit of a beast. I decided to do the race about three weeks ago and only had one chance to check out part of the course. I blogged about that experience in my pre-race report. Having never tried to tackle the infamous Bulldog Road portion of the course before, I tried to figure out how tough it…

     Where else in the world can you see a 3D printer named after a simian, a 2000-core super chip, and an inexpensive hearing test in the same room? Hardware Alley at Disrupt London, that’s where. I love visiting the hardware booths at Disrupt and this event was no exception. Everyone had some amazing hardware that worked in amazing ways and I was able to visit nearly all of the companies on… Read More

  • iPhone 6 Plus Owners Reporting Frequent Crashes On Their Device

    Tyler Lee
    24 Oct 2014 | 2:39 am
    The iPhone 6 Plus is one of two iPhone handsets Apple launched last month. It is also the largest model Apple has ever offered to date with a Full HD display with a screen size at 5.5-inches. Unfortunately it also seems to be the iPhone with the largest amount of problems. We had heard about Bendgate and now according to new reports, it seems that the iPhone 6 Plus is experiencing a lot of crashes. There have been multiple posts on Apple’s Support Communities forum in which users are complaining that their iPhone 6 Plus is constantly crashing on them. In some cases, some users have been…

    The recently announced Google Nexus 6 smartphone is a beautiful phone. It looks good and the specs are pretty amazing. Unfortunately the phone is not following in the footsteps of other Nexus handsets and is priced above $600, which is the asking price for flagship devices from other OEMs. This also means that it puts the phone out of range for some customers. Well the good news is that you could always turn to the Nexus 5 The Nexus 5 briefly disappeared from the Google Play Store, although it was not clear as to why. There were some a little worried about its disappearance but the good news…
  • John McAfee’s D-VASIVE App Prevents Apps From Spying On You

    Tyler Lee
    24 Oct 2014 | 2:37 am
    John McAfee, while no longer related to the McAfee anti-virus company he helped found, has been pretty vocal about mobile security. It wasn’t too long ago that McAfee released an app called DCentral 1 which basically helps users identify which apps had what permission and allowed them to modify that permission as they saw fit. Well it looks like McAfee is back and this time he has a new app in tow – D-VASIVE. The app will run in the background and has the ability to log activities of your apps to see which app might have recently accessed something they should not have. One of the…

    Not all smartphones are created equal, that is for sure, and we are pleased to see more and more manufacturers start to look at the practical side of things, such as infusing smartphones with waterproof capabilities. After all, I am quite sure that each of us have a horror story to tell of how one particular handset of ours happened to have “drowned”, so to speak. Motorola has unveiled their latest Symbol TC70 touch computer, which they claim to be the most rugged, powerful enterprise mobile computer ever released that runs on the Android mobile operating system.

    23 Oct 2014 | 10:21 pm
    It has not been a good day for earnings announcements for Amazon, but Microsoft has a very different picture painted after announcing that their Q1 fiscal year 2015 financial results also saw a whopping 2.4 million Xbox consoles sold in the same corresponding period. In terms of percentage, Microsoft claims that this would number a 102% growth where unit sales are concerned. Do bear in mind that the Xbox brand happens to be part of the Devices and Consumer division, which also saw a 47% increase where revenue is concerned to hit the $10.96 billion mark. Apart from that, Microsoft has also…

  • Casio CTK-2400 Sampling Keyboard: A Generous Sampling of Fun

    Howard Whitman
    23 Oct 2014 | 12:53 pm
    The Casio CTK-2400 Sampling Keyboard I first dabbled in sampling back in the late 1980s, with Casio’s SK-10 sampling keyboard. It was a small product, about the size of a loaf of bread, and as a keyboard it was modest at best, but oh, how I loved it. This was the time when sampling technology was all the rage. First popularized by old-school rap artists who would include audio samples from famous rock songs and use them as building blocks for new pieces, sampling also found its way into contemporary rock music—such as the James Brown horn licks on Yes’ hit “Owner of a Lonely Heart.”…

    Round, retro, silky smooth and not overly pricey, Motorola’s Moto 360 looked like the perfect smartwatch from the get-go. Well, perfect may have been a bit of a stretch, as the initial battery life was far from ideal. It certainly didn’t help that Motorola went the mind-boggling decrepit TI OMAP 3 route instead of the standard Snapdragon 400 path for the on-board processor, and limited inventory also plagued what should have been a massively… Continue reading Moto 360 gets another software update, battery life now even better Related posts: Moto 360 battery life vastly improved with…

    As a gadget nerd, a certain desire eats away at your heart. It’s not necessarily that you need to have the latest and greatest device(s) on the market. Instead, a gadget lover’s desire is more about having truly new and fresh experiences. It’s why we modify and alter our smartphones, and outfit them with custom firmware. It’s why we find new ways to use our tech, other than what it was intended for. It’s why we love our gadgets so much. Believe it or not, your love of gadgets could land you a pretty sweet job. Sure, it may take a little schooling, but if you apply the same focus and…

    We've heard a lot about the upcoming Motorola Droid Turbo in the past few weeks, thanks to a plethora of leaks, even one from Verizon itself where the carrier posted a press render of the device on Twitter, and was promptly removed. The handset is expected to come with a Kevlar casing, and more recently, the prolific @evleaks -- who may be back in the leaking game -- posted a press render of the alleged handset, showing off its black and red color options. The images do look good, considering the Droid line up isn't the prettiest of Motorola handsets.Continue reading Motorola Droid Turbo…

    Jack M. Germain
    23 Oct 2014 | 7:07 pm
    Calculate Linux 14 is a distribution designed with home and SMB users in mind. It is optimized for rapid deployment in corporate environments as well. Calculate gives users something no other Linux distro makes possible. The Xfce desktop session is customized to imitate the look of the KDE desktop environment. This design approach goes a long way toward making Calculate Linux a one-distro-fits-all solution. Individual users or entire departments can fine-tune user preferences and features without changing the common appearance or performance.

A six-person team, comprising the Hawai'i Space Exploration Analog and Simulation 3 mission, is inhabiting a dome for an eight-month study of the human factors that contribute to astronaut crew function and performance over time. The HI-SEAS team is equally divided between women and men. One of the women, Martha Lenio, is its commander.
  • Apple Is Confusing Tablet Leadership With Awesomeness

    Chris Maxcer
    23 Oct 2014 | 7:04 am
    The new super thin iPad Air 2 is starting to get tepid reviews, most of which begrudgingly call it the "best tablet" in the market, while admitting it's boring. Instead of talking up all the great things about how it makes their lives better or fun, the focus is starting to turn to the glaringly obvious annoyances about what it doesn't do well at all. These criticisms aren't coming mainly from Apple haters -- they're coming from Apple's friends. "The best tablet needs to work harder," said one. "Is 'better' enough?" asked another.

The budget-busting prices of traditional printed textbooks and the ubiquity of mobile devices in schools have provided textbook authors and educational leaders with convincing reasons to give students an alternative. Textbook publishers are offering digital alternatives to traditional printed books.
  • Smart Nightlight Calls Your iPhone When Smoke, CO Alarms Start Wailing

    John P. Mello Jr.
    22 Oct 2014 | 12:21 pm
    Leeo on Tuesday introduced the Smart Alert Nightlight, a $99 gadget that can detect when the alarm sounds from a smoke or carbon monoxide detector and send alerts to an iPhone. About the size and shape of a coaster, the Smart Alert Nightlight plugs into a wall outlet where it does double duty as illuminator and monitor. When it hears an alarm, it uses its WiFi connection to send a push notification to a free app running on an iPhone 4S or later. If there's no response, the device will start working its way through a call tree of contacts.

  • UPnP Devices Used in DDoS Attacks

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

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

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

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

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

We don’t know exactly when the release date will be, but the watch will go on sale in the UK, France, Italy, and Spain. North American and Asian releases will happen soon after.

Speaking on what was once Nokia Conversations, Rytilä confirmed that a branding transition was taking place and that Microsoft’s phones would be sold under the moniker of ‘Microsoft Lumia’. In all likelihood the changes will be in name only, since Microsoft has released a number of Lumia phones since it’s acquisition of Nokia’s phone division…

    Itchy skin that causes an insatiable urge to scratch is one of the side-effects when people are allergic to dogs. And, as Treehugger reports, it’s also one of the side-effects when dogs are allergic to people. When volunteers from the Lucky Dog Retreat rescue centre in Indianapolis in the U.S found an adorable two year-old black lab called Adam, he had cracked skin, missing fur, and kept scratching and biting himself. They naturally assumed that this was due to mistreatment and fleas, but time and flea treatment didn’t help. So they tried special dog-friendly skin products, bathing…

    First Apple computer sells for £570,000 | ShortList Magazine “One of Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak’s Apple I computers has sold at auction for an astonishing $905,000 (£570,000) to an unnamed buyer. Originally hand-made by Steve Wozniak in 1976, it’s believed to be one of the first 50 models made in Wozniak’s family garage after the Byte Shop gave them their first order. Their creation was financed by the sale of Jobs’ VW Microbus and Wozniak’s HP-65 calculator. A fairly wise move, looking back.” Girls won’t make a pass at a man in Google…

The Fire Phone was launched in the US in July and in the UK last month – and runs Amazon’s own flavour of Android. Uniquely, it sports four cameras in the corners of the device for head tracking – so it can see…

It has 7x more pixels than your 1080p HDTV, and even 67% more pixels than the new 4K displays out there. The new Retina iMac starts with a 3.5GHz quad-core Intel Core i5 processor with two Thunderbolt 2 ports, 4 USB 3.0, 802.11ac Wi-Fi, and a standard 1TB Fusion Drive. It also includes 8GB RAM, which is disappointingly low but easily upgraded, and AMD a Radeon R9 graphics chip. The new iMac…

    Apple has officially unveiled the iPad Air 2. iPad Air 2 is just 6.1mm thin, making it 18% thinner than the original iPad Air (and that was already 20% thinner then the iPad that preceded it.)  Display components are now laminated together, reducing internal reflection, paired with an anti-reflection coating on the outside that reduced reflection by 56%, making it nicer to use when out and about. The iPad Air 2 is powered by the A8X processor, a 64-bit processor with 3 billion transistors that results in 40% faster CPU and 2.5x faster GPU (that’s 180x faster than the original…

  • Hong Kong’s Challenge to China

    Kyle Baxter
    29 Sep 2014 | 6:02 pm
    After China placed limitations on candidates for Hong Kong’s city leader, Hong Kong erupted in protest. This, of course, presents a large challenge to Xi Jinping and the PRC. Edward Wong and Chris Buckley write for the Times: China’s Communist Party has ample experience extinguishing unrest. For years it has used a deft mix of censorship, arrests, armed force and, increasingly, money, to repress or soften calls for political change. But as he faces massive street demonstrations in Hong Kong pressing for more democracy in the territory, the toolbox of President Xi Jinping of China…

    The phone dominates your attention. For nearly every use, the phone has your undivided attention. Browsing the web, Twitter, Instagram, Snapchat, watching video, reading, messaging—all require focus on a screen that fills your vision, your primary attention, and generally some kind of interaction. Everything else, too, is always a home button or notification-tap away at all times. Is that a shock when the phone is the single gateway to nearly everything? The PC is now for doing work, but the phone is for messaging, taking photos, sharing them, the web, Twitter, Facebook, finding places to…

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

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

TDK is showing their first STT-MRAM chip, a 8Mb device, produced on a 8" silicon substrate.  This is the first time TDK exposed their STT-MRAM technology. Those MRAM chips were produced by TDK's Headway Technologies. TDK will not mass poroduce MRAM chips themselves but rather seek a chip-making partner to produce them. But this may take a while: TDK says it could be up to 10 years before the technology matures (earlier reports said TDK…

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

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.

And they raised $248,460 through Destination GiveBack. The last day is usually reserved for innovations, last year’s was about robots and 3D printing. This time: People Plus Machines.

    23 Oct 2014 | 9:59 pm
    Canadian startup BitLit Media appeared on Dragons' Den to solicit funding. Three Dragons were impressed enough to make offers—but there's a twist at the end, so watch it all. The Vancouver company allows readers to buy discounted ebooks when they already own a physical version. BitLit, named to the Techvibes 20 in April, was founded in 2013. The startup raised a seed round in May. “Traditionally, publishers and authors didn't see any residual from used book sales, but traditionally new books stores also didn't invite their customers back to list their used copy for sale on the…

It has announced several upgrades to its video player, debuting an automatic playback format that features Vine-like loops.

  • Why Pixelmator Isn’t a Photoshop Alternative

    I’ve been using Pixelmator for a long time, now. It has been deemed a good alternative to Adobe Photoshop for Mac users, and for the most part, I have to agree. When you consider that Pixelmator will cost you $30—I got it for $15 while it was still version 1, now they’re on to version 3—and Photoshop will cost you $10 per month, you can understand that Photoshop will come with features and options that Pixelmator just doesn’t offer.

But current desalination techniques are expensive, prompting intense interest in new methods to draw minerals and salt from brackish water. Shankar Chellam, professor of civil and environmental engineering at the University of Houston, is working on a more efficient, less expensive way to remove contaminants and salt from brackish surface water. The treatments would also apply to brackish underground aquifers.

  • Four reasons to adopt tablets in the office

    KLS
    19 Oct 2014 | 4:11 am
    To a company that operated via typewriters and written letters, the concept of electronics worming their way into the corporate sphere might have seemed ridiculous. Of course, this might also have been the same company that never foresaw the appearance of DOS computers, or mobile phones, or the rise of the modern laptop. Technology has always come across as a boon to businesses, enabling faster communication and creating a more reliable, interconnected entity overall. These changes were not always easy, however, and most of them came gradually and at a great cost. In this day and age,…
  • 5 Tools you can’t afford not to upgrade

    KLS
    14 Oct 2014 | 10:18 am
    Technology continues its relentless march forward, which means that every year we are granted new and improved versions of our old devices. It can be difficult to understand the need to drop everything in favor of the newest tech, especially when so many of us are still using the laptops we bought for our first year of college. However, what we don’t realize is how our old tools are seriously slowing us down. While you may be able to get by with your old tools, your performance is likely lacking. Whether it takes you longer to accomplish basic tasks or you’re wasting valuable resources…
  • Why consumers are wary of mobile banking — and how you can protect yourself

    KLS
    14 Oct 2014 | 10:10 am
    Judging by the number of television commercials touting the benefits of online banking — you can transfer money while waiting in line at the grocery store, or in the amount of time it takes to warm up for a tennis serve! — you might think that anyone with a smartphone is using their bank’s mobile application. After all, it’s hard to beat the convenience of instant transfers, making deposits without visiting the bank, and the ability to check your balance before you hit the checkout line. Yet according to one recent survey, 44 percent of U.S. consumers said that they would never use…
  • How Apple’s iOS 8 update addresses security concerns

    KLS
    13 Oct 2014 | 12:30 am
    Ever since the first Macintosh, Apple has boasted of their machines’ superiority when it comes to virus protection, and their users usually list this as a major deciding factor between Apple’s products and their competitors. However, with the exponential growth Apple has received in the past decade, more and more tricky hackers are looking to disprove Apple’s claims. Malware and viruses specifically designed for Apple products are on the rise, putting the spotlight on Apple’s security efforts. In mid-September, Apple finally released an update to its devices’ operating system that…
  • Reports of iPhone 6 and 6 Plus bending, here’s video proof

    KLS
    25 Sep 2014 | 2:27 am
    The latest iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus have been available to the public for just under a week but reports are now emerging that the newest Apple devices are apparently bending when placed in pockets as you or I would for any phone. Apple have yet to respond to this but bearing in mind the device is made of aluminum, this was always going to be a possibility if enough force was applied. The video below demonstrates how easily the iPhone 6 can be bent by hand! Have you had problems? Drop us a message in the comments below.

Open Payments is the government's site for publishing payments made to doctors and teaching hospitals by drug and medical device manufacturers. It includes 4.4 million payments, worth $3.5 billion, to more than half a million doctors and almost 1,360 teaching hospitals.To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here

The file sizes of video games always seem to get bigger with the move to each new set of consoles, and recent times are no exception. The difference today is that customers are increasingly being asked to acquire entire games straight out of the air instead of from a disc, and the sizes of today's full-retail games are outpacing some people's internet connections.

Near-Term Flag: By year-end 2016, 50 percent of digital transformation initiatives will be unmanageable due to lack of portfolio management skills, leading to a measurable negative lost market share. 2)…

    We've written plenty about the City of London Police and its Police Intellectual Property Crime Unit (PIPCU), which despite an official jurisdiction covering a square mile of London, has made it clear that it considers itself Hollywood's private police force worldwide when it comes to stopping copyright infringement online. PIPCU has basically been a bumbling, censoring mess from the beginning. A year ago, it started ordering domain registrars to kill off websites with no court order and no legal basis -- demands that actually violated ICANN's policies. For registrars that ignored those…

    While the NFL isn't necessarily great at preserving its own historical footage in sum total, the fact is that the league makes a great deal of money by selling copies of game footage and interviews from seasons since past. Recently, three former players opted out of a settlement the league had agreed to in a class action case and decided to pursue their own rewards for the NFL's use of old game footage and interviews. Their theory is that the league violated their publicity rights. Their theory is wrong. Now, thanks to the First Amendment and two other reasons, U.S. District Judge Paul…

  • Judge: The Supreme Court Has Said Aereo Must Die, So Go Die

    This isn't a huge surprise, given Judge Alison Nathan's recent comments during the Aereo hearing, but Judge Nathan has now basically granted the networks what they want -- a pretty broad injunction (pdf) against Aereo. Judge Nathan doesn't buy the "okay, the Supreme Court said we looked like a duck, so now we'll pay like a duck" argument. To begin with, Aereo's argument suffers from the fallacy that simply because an entity performs copyrighted works in a way similar to cable systems it must then be deemed a cable system for all other purposes of the Copyright Act. The Supreme Court's opinion…

I had wondered if anyone would actually take him up on it. There's at least one. The good folks over at The Verge have remixed the Supreme Court's hearings on Aereo, and it's pretty damn entertaining. They even make use of the shot of "Dog" Justice Alito humping "Dog" Justice Kagan. Nicely…

  • Use the Ladobi Earphones to Listen to Porn – That’s it!

    Chip Chick Staff
    23 Oct 2014 | 11:45 am
    Love watching porn, but consistently disappointed by subpar audio and muted voices (and moans)? Wait, really? You are? Um, alright, guess there are some earphones with your name on them, then. The Ladobi Erotic Film Earphones have reportedly been tested and retested with one goal in mind—to make human voices sound as erotic as possible. Supposedly, this means that when using these earphones, female voices will sound ‘more pleasing and less sharp,’ while male voices will ‘sound fuller and rounder.’ I honestly don’t know what any of that is supposed to mean, or…
  • You Know What Goes with a Selfie? Stacks of Gold Money

    23 Oct 2014 | 9:37 am
    The best selfies are the ones you take with mad stacks in the background, preferably with one stack fanned out in your hand and another stack or five raining down around you. Other people will think you are cool and rich, and will like you. This is known.   But, everyone’s taking selfies with Benjamins and Jacksons (or Washingtons and Lincolns, you work with what you got). It’s time to put those greenbacks away, and start flaunting your wealth in real style. Gold style. PaperGold has made paper bills that sort of look like they could be United States money, and have lined…

They now have a 4-in-1 lens attachment for the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, and while we’ll miss the secret agent night vision goggles look of their Galaxy attachment, this one might be a little more useful.

    Most movies are lucky enough to have one good soundtrack—Guardians of the Galaxy has two. Along with the excellent score from Tyler Bates, there’s Guardians of the Galaxy: Awesome Mix Vol. 1, also known as the mixtape Peter Quill receives from his late mother. It’s a great mixtape, only problem being it was made available on pretty much every audio format except tape (including vinyl!). Fortunately, we’ll all soon be able to enjoy Awesome Mix Vol. 1 the way it was meant to be enjoyed—on a cassette. And, appropriately enough for a mixtape, it’s going to be exclusive…

    18 Oct 2014 | 9:39 am
    This has happened to all of us –  you hand your smartphone to someone else to show them a picture, and they will eventually start swiping left and right through the gallery. There is really no way to prevent this. Once you hand over your phone, unlocked, to someone else, they can do pretty much anything they want. Android Police writes about a new feature available on the upcoming Android 5.0 designed to “keep your phone secure in the hands of your friends”. Called Screen Pinning, this much needed feature allows users to lock a single app into the foreground so that when you give…

    Ever downloaded a video from the internet that is barely audible? Fixing the audio volume is a simple matter of demuxing the video file into its constituting video and audio channels, adding a constant gain to the audio channel and then packing both together into a video container. This tutorial will show you how to do that. Years ago, I wrote a similar tutorial showing readers how to increase the volume of the audio channel of a video file using a software called VirtualDub. The method described worked only with AVI files. The new method that I’m going to describe in this tutorial works…

The French website puts you in the shoes of a dude who gets knocked out of the yacht and into the sea. Once you’re in the water, you have to use your mouse to scroll without stopping in order to stay afloat. Eventually, when your finger starts to ache and your scrolling slows down or stops, you sink and die. The game ends with a simple message: “At sea, you tire faster than you think. Whenever you go out to sea, wear your life jacket.” 2. SHRTURL: A prank URL shortening…

    It has been well established that SEO is just as essential to a blog writer as it to is to a website content writer. If your blog content is not garnering a good readership despite the high quality of content in the post, it could mean that search engines are not finding your blog. On the other hand, sacrificing quality for the sake of SEO is not prudent, either. Ideally, striking the balance between quality and SEO would not only open your blog post to discovery, but can even lead to and sustain a loyal readership.

Also, while this post refers to a golden age, NOTHING in it refers to fringe New Testament apocalyptic theology. Introduction During the first part of the 20th century, the french philosopher and sociologist Maurice Halbwachs advanced the idea of “collective memory” — a shared pool of information held in the memories of two or more members of a group. Or at least that’s what a group of two…

    When you open any page inside Google Chrome, it connects to the Internet, fetches the latest version of the page from the server and displays it on your screen. If your computer is offline, Chrome will display an error message with a dinosaur* image saying it is unable to connect to the Internet. Internet Explorer and Firefox offer an offline mode that auto-saves a copy of web pages as you browse the Internet and displays this local copy when you are not connected to the Internet. Thus, if you are offline in a flight, you can still open and read websites that you accessed while your computer…

    Sadly it seems pretty common place these days to hear of big companies being hacked and having thousands, if not millions of credit card numbers stolen and resold. When Apple announced Apple Pay, I was very interested to say the least. The idea of a payment system that breaks away from all the traditional pitfalls of credit/debit card payments is something that we can all appreciate. The concept behind Apple Pay is simple. If you have an iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus then you have the necessary hardware (NFC – near field communications) to allow for wireless transmission of data from your…

    Wow! I just checked my YouTube views and noticed that I have passed the 20 Million View mark! I wanted to take a few moments to thank all my viewers and supporters. Whenever I’m out at an event, conference or on tour so many of you make it a point to come up to me and thank me for my videos or to tell me how my videos have taught you various things. This of course encourages me to do more and to continue doing what I do.   I also noticed that I now have over 180,000 subscribers to my channel. It seems like it was just yesterday when I received the plaque above recognizing me for…

    After posting my  last update about how I had built my photography website with Adobe Lightroom and plug-ins from The Turning Gate, I started getting questions like: “Could you build your site with Adobe Muse CC?” Of course the answer was always “yes I could, but…” There was a big reason that I built this particular site with Lightroom instead of Muse. I’m always updating my photography galleries with new photos and removing older photos. I manage all of my portfolios and this process with Collections in Lightroom.

  • DNN Tips: GetTab Method without DNN Context

    Baldwin
    11 May 2014 | 4:45 am
    As you know, the simple method GetTab(int tabid) was obsolete and has been replaced by GetTab(ByVal TabId As Integer, ByVal PortalId As Integer, ByVal ignoreCache As Boolean). If you want to call the new method, we have to pass the additional parameter “PortalId”. In common,  the object PortalSettings can be easy to get with DNN context, such as special dnn module & page; however, it may be inaccessible in some sceneries, such as separate aspx page or handler. Then is there any way to get the correct tab info with this new method? Now there is a simple trick to do it with passing…

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

  • Accountability

    Alex Goldfayn
    20 Oct 2014 | 3:33 pm
    My average client grows by 15% to 20% in their first year with me. On the low end, some clients grow by “just” 5% or 10% because you can stumble accidentally into that kind of growth after experiencing the mindset change we work on, and applying just a few of the techniques I teach. On the high end, I have clients who grow by 30% and even more in their first year. (And that’s annual, from now until the end of time, as long as you choose to implement the marketing we create for you.) I’ve analyzed what separates the top growers from the ones who grow the least.
  • Two Parallel Tracks

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

    Alex Goldfayn
    6 Oct 2014 | 5:15 am
    Earlier this year, I received a hand-written note. It’s the only such note I’ve received over the last year. I read it in 15 seconds, and put it down. This was about four months ago. It’s still on my desk. I cannot bring myself to throw it away. I was done with it the moment I finished reading it, but there it sits, a visual daily reminder of the time the good person took to write me personally. In an era where anyone can tweet or post or email anything to anyone at any time, it is easier than ever to stand out from the crowd. The personal communication is increasingly rare.

    Alex Goldfayn
    29 Sep 2014 | 5:28 am
    The fourth quarter of the year starts this week, so here are some things to think about as the calendar year enters its home stretch: What’s your lowest hanging fruit for revenue growth in coming three months? List one product, service, event or opportunity now. What can you do that you’re not doing now that would grow your sales the easiest, fastest and most? List at least one behavior now. Which high potential prospects (who did not buy) have you communicated with this year who you can revisit in the fourth quarter? List three now. Finally, give me one action, activity or event…
  • Revenue Questions

    Alex Goldfayn
    22 Sep 2014 | 5:41 am
    Are you making time for revenue growth? It’s a proactive pursuit. You cannot spend your days reacting to customers’ issues and significantly grow your organization. Are you behaving boldly? Because marketing it no place for modesty. You improve lives and companies. Act like it. Are you asking for testimonials and referrals regularly? These are among the best and easiest ways to grow sales. Are multiple people at your company consistently asking the “Did You Know” question? On average, customers are only aware of about 30 percent of all that they can buy from you.

    Poor Paula Deen can’t catch a break. She went through months of embarrassment and difficulty over some alleged comments that some viewed as racist toward black people. She lost book deals, endorsements, her cooking show, and loads of fair-weather fans. Since then, Deen has worked hard to claw her way back up the ladder. She started a new subscription-based show. She launched a touring show that combines comedy with cooking. But now Deen is being accused of racism again. Deen’s website for her restaurant The Lady and Sons recently featured a photo of a black woman in an apron emblazoned…

So when Wisconsin-based Duluth Trading Company ran an email ad for their Longtail T Henley shirts, that used the slogan “Don a Henley and Take it Easy”, there was no wasted time. Henley rang up Melanie Howard and Thomas Jirgal at Loeb & Loeb and got the lawsuit rolling.

    23 Oct 2014 | 6:39 pm
    “Paging Mr. Herman.” Pee-Wee’s Big Adventure was way back in 1985. The follow-up, Big Top Pee-Wee, was a lackluster sequel that never really needed to happen. But the first one, that was pure gold. “I know you are, but what am I?” For years, people have been asking Paul Reubens when Pee-Wee is coming back to the big screen. And for years, Reubens has been yanking our chain. Reubens admits to outright lying in interviews on the subject. Back in 2007, he teased about a Pee-Wee movie, but later acknowledged that he made the whole thing up. “Well, here’s the…

    You may (or may not) be surprised by how many women own anti-aging creams who haven’t even hit 30 yet. Their cabinets lined with little bottles and jars meant to protect them against that first wrinkle. For women already beyond the age of 40, the anti-aging creams are meant to erase proof that they are indeed getting older. Whether it’s a desperate stab at youth or compulsive vanity, anti-aging creams are just one vein of the multi-billion dollar beauty industry. It’s the one that promises women that their creams and lotions will turn back the clock. Advertisements silently…

    HTC has brought a plethora of devices to India as it aims to boost sales in all the segments. Most of these devices have been announced internationally so their arrival was more than expected. The surprise launch was the HTC M8 Eye, which is basically the same phone as the HTC M8, though with a 13 MP regular camera instead of the Ultra Pixels unit that HTC has been propagating for a while. Other than the camera, the specifications of the M8 Eye are exactly like the M8, but the biggest surprise is the price, as the M8 Eye is priced at Rs 38,990, much lower than the HTC M8 with Ultra Pixel…

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

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

  • 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…

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

    Google, along with five other companies, has announced Tuesday about a huge investment of more than half a billion dollars in a project called “Magic Leap”. The company remains somewhat mysterious for keeping the technical details of what it is going to provide consumers with a secret. Nevertheless, all the six investors are convinced that the $542 million is worthy of investment. The other companies to join Google in the effort are Andreessen Horowitz, Qualcomm, KPCB, Obvious Ventures and Vulcan Capital. One may wonder why Google took this Magic Leap venture so seriously that it has just…

    A dragon is perceived as a symbol of power in Chinese culture; that is why display of dragons is almost inevitable in every major cultural event. This time China pits a (robot) giant spider against a robot horse dragon in a fabulous show that takes place in front of Beijing’s Olympic Park, also known as the “bird’s nest”. The show was arranged over the weekend as China and France celebrated the 50th anniversary of diplomatic relations between the two countries.

    Adopting much of the style that Facebook uses, Snapchat is here with its first ad, which is a sponsored content for 20 seconds. The ad is a trailer for an upcoming horror movie named “Ouija”. The number of mobile app users that received the advertisement is unknown; the ad showed up in the section “Recent Updates” which is supposed to be reserved for “Stories” of friends. The ad appeared very much like any other updates in the section and could be misunderstood as a “friend’s story”.

I’d argue that the people you follow on Twitter are those with similar views or interests as you have.

Instead, you see a small piece of a much bigger puzzle. I guess you can sort of call this a tease. The artist takes a photo and lets you decide for yourself what you see and feel. This is the exact reason why I love abstract architecture photography. You have no surrounding context to help you formulate an educated thought about the photo at hand.

    With the ICD-10 compliance date fast approaching, many providers and medical coders continue to be plagued by doubts and ambiguities related to the new coding system. It is important that they obtain a clear view regarding ICD-10 and the features that distinguish it, as well as the government’s stand regarding its implementation. Successful ICD-10 implementation demands considerable training and education for clinicians, coders and others within the healthcare fraternity that is associated with the revenue cycle.

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

    Researchers from a remote part of Siberia claim to have recorded real sounds from hell. They drilled a hole roughly 14 kilometers deep into earth's crust.

After dropping ultra-sensitive microphones into the hole--to measure the earth's movements--they discovered strange feedback coming into the mics. The video below is a sample of what they recorded.

With that information, a hacker can view users contacts, photos, messages and personal information stored in the cloud. As of last night, the Chinese firewall is blocking all local connections to iCloud.com, redirecting those connections to a dummy site designed to look exactly like Apple's login page.

National Adoption Week 2014 takes place from 3-9 November, and this year the main focus is on keeping brothers and sisters together (where this is believed to be in the best interest of the children in question), so BAAF will be asking all their supporters…

Being concerned about the possible adverse impact this may impart on the users of those machines is a natural concern.

For those uninitiated to MIT, the Smoot was concocted in October 1958 after a Lambda Chi Alpha headmaster sent seven students to calibrate the Harvard (Mass. Ave.) Bridge using 5’7 freshman Ollie Smoot ’62. The unofficial length: 364.4 Smoots, plus one ear. (A plaque commemorating the prank was added to the bridge in 2009.) Oliver Smoot ’62 is used to measure the bridge in 1958. The measurement has long been a calculation…

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

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

    18 Oct 2014 | 5:03 pm
    Looking to upgrade to a new game console? This is the article for you! There’s nothing quite like a really good video game console.  Sure, you can’t really dispute the ultimate flexibility (or possibilities) offered through PC gaming, but when it comes to simple and effective plug-and-play entertainment, where you know “for sure” that you’ll be able to load up that new title and it will definitely work (with little to no glitches, bugs or finagling required).  That’s always pretty much been the draw of the console market – its user-friendliness and overall usability.  Of…
  • Exciting Tech Gadgets Coming in 2015

    18 Oct 2014 | 4:53 pm
    Technology seems to be growing by leaps and bounds, the last decade or so seeming gigantic advances within the consumer electronics market.  The truth is, we never know what exciting things are just around the corner, but by looking at data from the periphery we can often make logical, educated guesses on where things might be headed.  The following products and concepts offer a glimpse into what might be headed our way in 2015.  Let’s get started, shall we? See-through / holographic phones?   It should come as no surprise that most of the research in mobile phone technology is in the…
  • What’s new at Google? …here’s looking at the Nexus device line

    17 Oct 2014 | 5:55 pm
    Say what you will about them, but Google is always at the forefront, of well…nearly everything you can think of.  Such appears to be the case with their ”Nexus” device line which encapsulates not only a phone and tablet, but also an entertainment / player hub as well.  What is the ultimate purpose of all this, you ask?   How is it supposed to make everything better, you might be wondering?  Each one of these offerings is Android-powered of course and will feature an upcoming OS update.  “Android Lollipop” is the cloak and dagger phrase that’s being passed around, and…

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

    Mary Ludloff
    15 Oct 2014 | 5:41 pm
    By Mary Ludloff and Marilyn Craig Welcome back to the second post in our series on how to get value from your data. As we stated in a previous post: “Data, without the proper use of analytics, is meaningless. If data is the new oil, think of analytics as the oil drills—you need both to be successful.” Of course, getting to “success” is not easy as anyone involved in an analytics project will tell you. This series walks you through our methodology on what it takes—from inception to proof of concept to implementation and deployment—to navigate project pitfalls.
  • Getting Value From Your Data Series: The Road May Be Rocky But It’s Well Worth the Effort!

    Marilyn Craig
    30 Sep 2014 | 5:06 pm
    By Mary Ludloff and Marilyn Craig Unless you’ve been asleep for the past couple of years, you, like us, have heard this phrase again and again:  Data is the new oil.  It certainly sounds great but what exactly does it mean? Here’s our take: Getting the most value out of your data can make you better at what you do as well as enable you to do more with what you have. In other words, there’s unrealized value in those data silos that all companies have. But make no mistake: the road to realizing data value is paved with good intentions and often times, poor execution and results. Today,…
  • Lessons Learned from the Google Flu Tracker—Why We Need More Than Just Data

    Mary Ludloff
    9 Apr 2014 | 7:15 pm
    By Marilyn Craig and Mary Ludloff We read an interesting paper and post about Google Flu Trends (GFT) and its foibles last week. The paper points out a couple of lessons that those of us living in the big data analytics world have learned the hard way but the dangers are worth revisiting as tools like ours (AnalyticsPBI for Azure) begin to move big data analytics into the mainstream of organizational practices. After all, our tool (and others like it) makes it easy and even fun for analytics junkies to use all those available zettabytes of data and answer questions that they’ve long…
  • Reporting, Analytics, and Big Data: A Continuous Feedback Loop to Drive Better Decision-Making

    Mary Ludloff
    2 Mar 2014 | 3:07 pm
    By Marilyn Craig A recent conversation with a client reminded me that no matter how crazy and exciting the Big Data world gets, it is still critical to understand what your goals are and where you are in the process of reaching those goals. Having a good foundation in “what’s important” is critical before you jump into the wild world of Big Analytics. For example, in big data (well, actually all data but I digress) “Reporting” and “Analytics” are very different functions. But I often find our customers and prospects grappling with how to distinguish one from the other and as a…
  • New Year (2014) Rumination: Death of privacy as we know it? Or inflection point signaling better things to come?

    Mary Ludloff
    11 Jan 2014 | 12:16 pm
    By Mary Ludloff I am, and always have been, a glass half-full kind of gal. In fact, way back in September 2011 when Terence and I published our book on Privacy and Big Data, I was far more optimistic than he was on the future of privacy—of course, it’s easy to sound optimistic when your co-author states that privacy is dead. (And yes, we are still working on our book update but we do have day jobs and a significant release in the works so it is slow going but going it is.) At that time, those in the “digital privacy know” characterized our book as a decent overview. Our intent at the…

  • Network Management: Still a ‘Must-Have’ for Enterprise IT

    Jim Frey
    7 Oct 2014 | 9:23 am
    It’s sometimes difficult to differentiate between hype and reality when it comes to topics such as cloud, ITaaS, SDN, DevOps, hybrid this and hybrid that. But there are a few certainties in the IT universe and one of them is that IT doesn’t function if all of the pieces can’t talk to one another, and that means the network needs to be rock solid. Some of that is under the control of enterprise IT teams as internal network infrastructure, but some of it isn’t, such as WAN or Internet. Because connectivity is so essential, no one questions the need for making sure the network is healthy…
  • Citrix Stakes Software-Defined Ground; Network Remains Critical to Success

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

    28 Aug 2014 | 1:10 pm
    There was a time at the height of my home video and audio craze that the number of devices I needed to watch a movie could no longer be counted on one hand. Amplifier, preamplifier, tuner, CD player, DVD player, TV, cable box . . .you get the idea. As I organized my vast array of remote controls on the coffee table, I was blissfully unaware of any issues. That was the case until my wife just wanted to watch a movie one night while I was gone, and she had a conniption fit trying to figure everything out. There was no way she was going to invest the time to learn what to power up, and what…
  • Return on Investment (ROI) of Data Science as a Service

    John Myers
    18 Aug 2014 | 9:31 am
    In skiing, the “black diamond” run or ski slope is often referred to as “high risk/high reward.” You receive lots of “reward” skiing the black diamond slopes, but you have a significant amount of “risk” associated with variable terrain, such as the presence of trees and the possibility of injury. However, the black diamond slopes are very fun to experience, and you can mitigate the risks with preparation, practice, and a really good skiing helmet. Data science is one of those “high risk/high reward” concepts in technology. An organization can gain huge financial rewards by…

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

    It is no secret at this point that the Nokia name was going to be eventually supplanted by something else. Nokia lives on as a separate company, while Microsoft takes ownership of the Lumia brand and brings the new employees into the fold. Speculation about the name change has been going for months but on October 21, Microsoft made it official by stating the new name will go from Nokia Lumia to Microsoft Lumia. Tonight, the Conversations blog has more on the name change, including what it all means.

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

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

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

    Branding is a key aspect in any business that is important to get right. For those that pay attention to their brand it can lead to unrivalled riches and waves of success, but those that push it to one side or don’t bother with at all it could spell the end of your business. Branding starts from the moment you decide to create your business, with the name, the logo and even the colour you use – they all define what you are about.

    The key to successful collaboration is communication. In a networked world with email, texting, messenger apps, and being able to reach anyone anywhere we can think that we are communicating when we really are not communicating effectively. Effective communication takes teamwork, organization, and planning. And when you can’t get all your teams and team members in the same room, effective communication can take a little more effort. Getting on the right track.  Pulling together your team when you are all in the same location can be like herding cats. In general, it is easy to call a…

The game features you as a team; however the game is single player as you will need to control all of the team players.

    Branding is a lot like middle school. You want to stand out, you want to be your own person – but you only want the “right” people to notice. So you change your hair style…slightly. You maybe try a new brand of clothing, one that looks the same as the old brand. You vow to raise your hand more in class, but not enough to become the teacher’s pet. This came to mind when we were discussing the “Share a Coke” campaign (the one where they put people’s names and cutesy words like “Legend” and “BFF” and all kinds of things that grownups never say to one another on the cans…
  • Is your Company Ready for the Good Fight?

    8 Oct 2014 | 11:16 am
    I recently heard a story on Ted Radio about Alice Stewart . Alice was a physician in England in the 1950’s and the youngest fellow at the time to be elected to the college of physicians. Alice was an epidemiologist specializing in social medicine and the effects of radiation on health. She wanted to solve big problems and the one she choose to try to solve early in her career was the alarming rate of childhood cancers. She liked to study patterns and did research by polling mothers of children who had developed cancer. It was a radical notion at the time to think that mothers would be…
  • On Concept Writing: How Consumers Consume Concepts

    Paul Crowe
    1 Oct 2014 | 11:45 am
    We spend a lot of time honing our concepts, making sure that the language is just right before going into a quantitative test. But how many of us have thought about how respondents (i.e., consumers) actually consume concepts? In this article, we’ll take a look at some R&D conducted by Ipsos InnoQuest that leveraged eye tracking to understand how consumers read concepts – and discuss the implications for when you’re writing concepts. Follow Their Eyes Without further ado, here are the results. What is shown is a “view order” analysis which indicates the most typical path which…

    You know how it always happens that as soon as you learn a new word, you hear it everywhere? I mean everywhere until the point where you think to yourself, “how have I gone so long without knowing what this meant?” Lately, that’s how I’ve been feeling with a topic instead of a word. That topic is geolocation, and once I started to look into it, I’ve realized it’s EVERYWHERE – and with good reason! Today, most of us carry around personal tracking devices. No, I’m not talking about Minority Report: I’m talking about our smart phones. And while it may be scary to think about,…

    Earlier this spring, Newell Rubbermaid announced the opening of a new state-of-the-art Design Center in Michigan, joining an “exclusive club of design-driven companies that recognize design and innovation as a competitive advantage”. Design thinking and design-led innovation philosophies and methods have been gaining significant traction over the last few years , propelled by the likes of IDEO and the opening of the d.school at Stanford. However, nothing says this has gone from the fringes to the mainstream like a manufacturer of curtain rods, trash cans, pens, food storage containers and…

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

    Search engine optimization is hard enough when the playing field is level. For most businesses, good SEO means taking smart actions to rank higher on Google: creating great content, building strong backlinks and getting social media buzzing.

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

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

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

One, the computer was running Windows, and probably an outdated version of Windows. Two, the computer had been infected with Conficker–Conficker was a pretty infamous threat, back in 2008!!

    Recently KiniBiz did a piece on Malaysian broadband speeds, and once again the hoopla about how Malaysian broadband speeds are slow arose. Kinibiz quoted an article from Asean DNA which stated that the average broadband speed in Malaysia was just 5.5 Mbps, while Thailand, Vietnam and Singapore had speeds that were double that (or more!)

There was a report couple months back that said Cambodia had faster speeds than Malaysia, and I wrote a post addressing that. This time I…

That sounds anathema, because we have a romanticized definition of the law, we define the Law as a broad general agreement a society undertakes, and the law keeps society from tearing itself apart. In other words, the law is so sacred because without it–we descend into anarchy, so ignoring the law is akin to promoting anarchy.

    9 Oct 2014 | 11:32 am
    Kingston HyperX Fury 240GB SSD- an SSD with the “HyperX” branding after a very long time. The last Kingston HyperX series SSD was HyperX 3K. Other than that, Kingston have been releasing few V series SSDs here and there. So, we should expect good ‘mainstream’ performance now that it comes with HyperX, or so we would like to think. Afterall, that’s the idea of having  series within the branding to differentiate between the products. But many things changed. Those were the times practically every flash NAND centric brand that doesn’t make its own NAND or controller was slapping…

    The Sorcerer

    Thanks to mini-ITX motherboards, AIO coolers and low-profile CPU coolers, modular/semi-modular power supplies and even SSDs, case manufacturers can make significantly smaller-yet-space efficient case designs. CM Elite 130 is a case that meant to be small and compliment the mini/low profile components that it can house within. One has to be honest, case makers tend to keep such cases up for a premium price. Its another story when such premium could be justified. BitFenix made Colossus mATX- a pretty large case, but still something you’ll love to keep on your desk rather than hide it away…

    Buyers – businesses, consumers and governments — are changing their behaviors, driven by changes in the communications channels and technologies they use to research purchases and share information with peers, bringing new opportunities and challenges for public relations to the fore.

    Wall Street and Technology
    22 Oct 2014 | 1:47 pm
    Advanced analytical technologies are an important part of a social media risk management strategy, an Accenture report says, but the technology must be balanced with training and procedures. Social media training, a social media risk assessment plan, a social governance policy, and a risk-aware culture — is all of this really necessary? Yes. For all the benefits social media have provided to financial service firms from marketing, referrals, and recruitment, the complexities and legal risks are still daunting, not to mention risks to reputation. But going social cannot be avoided,…

    Beyond PR
    16 Oct 2014 | 3:49 pm
    Earned media mentions are the golden ring for many PR programs.  Getting great coverage in a key publication remains a key objective for many public relations campaigns and with good reason – traditional media outlets continue to wield outsize influence despite flagging revenues and diminished paid subscribers. News coverage garners attention, fuels social amplification, builds brand credibility and as it so happens, influences buyers. Earned media mentions have real utility for brands beyond PR’s clip book. When a prospect is in the discovery phase, they’re open to a broad scope of…

Apple still commands 70 percent of the MP3 player market, but it's clear that other mobile devices, namely smartphones and tablets, can do the job of an MP3 player (while performing a myriad of other functions, too).If you look at Apples…

    Social networks are great for sharing links. However, Twitter’s fast-paced nature means that those links are difficult to track — whether shared by others or even those you post yourself. Don’t worry, there’s always technology to make things easier. There are several good reasons to use Twitter, but personally, I find it best to read interesting links. I’d argue that the people you follow on Twitter are those with similar views or interests as you have. Given how often people share links on the micro-blogging network, eventually, that means Twitter turns into a…

    Here’s a quick little tip for anyone looking for a simple way to find out who is hosting a particular website. Trying to figure out who hosts a web site can be an annoying task if you’re trying to go through the usual channels by searching a WHOIS database, etc. A lot of times you’ll only get the company or person that registered the domain name, but not the actual hosting company. Who is Hosting This? is a very simple web service whose sole purpose is to tell you the company that is hosting a website. I really like this because most of the other online web site checking…

    24 Oct 2014 | 2:59 am
    Microsoft officially announced today that the Nokia branding will not be used in conjunction with its future Windows Phones. The software giant will sell its upcoming smartphones as Microsoft Lumias. However, it will continue to make use of Nokia's name for dumb phones. The tech media may act surprised, but, in fact, we have known that this was bound to happen for more than a year. In early-September 2013, when the sale of Nokia's Devices & Services to Microsoft was announced, the terms revealed that the software giant would eventually have to drop the Nokia branding.

  • Fire Phone flops badly, burns Amazon

    24 Oct 2014 | 12:19 am
    Amazon didn’t have a good third quarter, reporting a net loss of $437 million, which is up significantly from the $41m loss it reported for the same quarter last year. Contributing to that loss is the abject failure of the Fire Phone. My colleague Brian Fagioli described Amazon's handset as Android done differently in his review, and although he liked it, he said it wouldn’t be for everyone. It turns out it’s for hardly anyone. During the Amazon earnings call, Amazon’s Chief Financial Officer Tom Szkutak said that the company was taking a $170 million dollar write-down "primarily…

  • Surface generated almost $1 billion revenue for Microsoft last quarter

    Mark Wilson
    23 Oct 2014 | 6:01 pm
    Anyone who was under the impression that Surface was a failure for Microsoft need look no further than the latest earnings release for proof that they're wrong. In the quarter ending September 30, Microsoft pulled in $23.20 billion in revenue, and $908 million of this came from the Surface division. All told, FY15 Q1 represents record first quarter revenue for Microsoft, and it can be at least partly attributed to the influence of Satya Nadella, as well as the restructuring surrounding Nokia Devices and Services. There was a strong performance in the Devices and Consumer divisions, with…

    It's only been a few days since the 0.5 release but I've been busy updating CryptoNark with some bug fixes and also added in support for Windows. One caveat: I've only tested this on WIndows 8.1 under a Strawberry Perl 5.18.2 installation. Please let me know if there are any issues on older/newer versions of Strawberry Perl. One additional item to note in this version. SSLv2 connections to some sites were causing perl to crash when running on Windows. I've modified the subroutine that is making SSLv2 calls to make it more stable but on those sites that it was crashing on, cnark now falsely…

  • How to Setup Advanced Sales Tax

    22 Oct 2014 | 12:44 pm
    Lets face it, no matter how much we would like to see the opposite, taxes just keep getting more complex. Luckily, E-Junkie makes it possible to set up more then just a single sales tax rate. If you are selling in a single state, lets say Arizona (where we are located), you will need to charge sales tax to buyers through out the state.But different cities having their own tax rate (along with the state rate and maybe even a county rate as well), that can create a number of different rates depending on where your buyer is located. In this tutorial, we'll guide you through each step.

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