  • If Earth Never Had Life, Continents Would Be Smaller

    19 Apr 2015 | 12:20 pm
    sciencehabit writes It may seem counterintuitive, but life on Earth, even with all the messy erosion it creates, keeps continents growing. Presenting here this week at the annual meeting of the European Geosciences Union, researchers say it's the erosion itself that makes the difference in continental size. Plant life, for example, can root its way through rock, breaking rocks into sediment. The sediments, like milk-dunked cookies, carry liquid water in their pores, which allows more water to be recycled back into Earth's mantle. If not enough water is present in the mantle about 100 to 200…

It's classic economics, supposedly....but is Uber's surge pricing algorithm really doing what they claim? Do surge prices really get more cars on the road? My analysis suggests that rather than motivating a fresh supply of drivers, surge pricing instead re-distributes drivers already on the road. Adds minstrelmike: The writer goes on to analyze…

    19 Apr 2015 | 8:18 am writes Diane Cardwell reports in the NYT that many utilities are trying desperately to stem the rise of solar power, either by reducing incentives, adding steep fees or effectively pushing home solar companies out of the market. The economic threat has electric companies on edge. Over all, demand for electricity is softening while home solar is rapidly spreading across the country. There are now about 600,000 installed systems, and the number is expected to reach 3.3 million by 2020, according to the Solar Energy Industries Association. In Hawaii, the current battle began in…

    When I first started working on tech projects in the early 1980s, the design cycle from product conception to market was about two and a half to three years. Projects I worked on, which included the second generation of the IBM PC and their first laptops, had at least 6-9 months of just discussion about concepts and technology integration before it even got to the initial prototyping stage. Once in that stage, it could take as much as a year to find the right design and then another 9-12 months to get the marketing, channels and channel staff ready to actually sell the product.

     Nowadays, it seems that everything is connected to the Internet. There are connected socks, shoes, shirts, hats, glasses, appliances, beds, homes, drones, cars, and even diapers. Yet, for the Internet of Things (IoT) to play a key role in shaping our future, we need to get a few thingsright. The statement, “Those who fail to learn from history are doomed to repeat it.” has never… Read More
  • The Year Of Mobile Payments

    19 Apr 2015 | 12:30 am
     Ask most people what the state of mobile payments is today, and they’ll tell you it’s just kicking off. With Facebook announcing the option to ‘send money to friends’ via messenger and the release of Apple Pay last year, 2015 has excitedly been dubbed “The Year of Mobile Payments.” Yet what most people don’t realise is that these services are… Read More

     We’ve been living in a bundled world. ESPN packaged with Nickelodeon, healthcare tied to employers, learning wrapped up in colleges and degree programs. We’ve grown up surrounded by so many bundled products and services that it’s easy to become blind to the flexibility and value presented by unbundling. Read More

  • The Evolution of Communication: From Journalism to Blogging to Tweeting. And Now? Meerkasting?

    30 Mar 2015 | 3:57 am
    I have been thinking about this trend way before Meerkat was a thing. In fact, I believe it first occurred to me before Twitter was a thing. Now before I explain why I think the trend is clear, let me state that I do not believe that each link in this chain replaces the one that preceded it. I believe that each stage remains relevant but its relevancy decreases as the new stage enters. So let’s take a walk down memory lane. Remember websites? I kid. But really, remember traditional journalism? You know, those big sites for which journalists, real journalists would write after completing…
  • Entrepreneurs: It is Officially No Longer Acceptable to Say These Four Words

    23 Mar 2015 | 12:27 am
    By: Hillel Fuld (@hilzfuld) There are many advantages to having an active blog. In fact, I wrote a whole post about why everyone should blog. Branding, traffic, relationships, and so many other reasons people should be generating content of some sort on a regular basis. Over the years however, I discovered one more perk of blogging. Whenever something annoying happens in my world and I notice it is happening consistently, instead of addressing the issue each time, I try to write about it and send that post to the next person who does it. Ok, that sounds totally cryptic. Here are a few…

I mean there are so many platforms out there and you seem to be active on all of them. How do you balance it all?” Truth be told, the social landscape is a little bit out of control.

At a spa tucked in a suburban retail megacenter outside Denver, an esthetician lightly strips off the remnants of yesterday's mascara, and preps my face for a cannabis oil-infused treatment.

  • Original Moore's Law paper doesn't say what you think it does

    Lance Ulanoff
    19 Apr 2015 | 11:56 am
    In 1965, a relatively young Gordon Moore penned his now legendary paper with the scholarly title, "Cramming More Components onto Integrated Circuits." That paper, by the future Intel co-founder, is widely celebrated as the original inspiration for Moore's Law, which states roughly that the number of transistors that can be installed on an integrated circuit doubles every two years. His breakthrough observation became a sort of guiding principle for the still very young computer industry. During the next 30 years, it was often difficult to tell if chip and computer manufacturers were proving…

    Florida Republican Sen. Marco Rubio, who announced his presidential candidacy last week, told Bob Schieffer of CBS News on Sunday that he does not believe in manmade global warming. Instead, Rubio said he recognizes the climate is changing, but that scientists have not determined what percentage of such changes are due to human activities, such as burning coal, oil and gas for energy, compared to natural climate variability. Unfortunately for Rubio, scientists have been quite clear that the majority of warming during the past few decades is due to manmade global warming. In an appearance on…

  • Funniest/Most Insightful Comments Of The Week At Techdirt

    Leigh Beadon
    19 Apr 2015 | 12:00 pm
    This week, we pointed out that the TSA's investigation into agents who were caught conspiring to grope passengers left little chance that they would be prosecuted. A lot of it came down to the lack of a named victim which, as an anonymous commenter pointed out in our most insightful comment of the week, is a rare conundrum enabled by the very nature of the TSA itself: They didn't have a victim because they didn't tell the victim he was a victim. In any other situation the victim of assault would know without having to be told, but here its just normal TSA procedure to be assaulted so the…

    Five Years Ago This week in 2010, the move to a new type of mass media was accelerating across the board: more people were giving up TV across the board and smart artists were trying smart business models like the classical orchestras using CwF+RtB. The old guard, as usual, was having trouble catching up: Fox and Universal both wrangled release delay deals out of Netflix; copyright threatened the best thing to come out of the second Star Wars trilogy; broadcasters were still futilely trying to push mobile TV; a book publisher was threatening US fans for ordering from overseas instead of…

  • SEC Boss Can't Keep Her Story Straight On Whether Or Not SEC Snoops Through Your Emails Without A Warrant

    Mike Masnick
    17 Apr 2015 | 7:39 pm
    For many years now, we've been writing about the need for ECPA reform. ECPA is the Electronic Communications Privacy Act, written in the mid-1980s, which has some frankly bizarre definitions and rules concerning the privacy of electronic information. There are a lot of weird ones but the one we talk about most is that ECPA defines electronic communications that have been on a server for 180 days or more as "abandoned," allowing them to be examined without a warrant and without probable cause as required under the 4th Amendment. That may have made sense in the 1980s when electronic…
  • Bill Introduced To Fix Broken DMCA Anti-Circumvention Rules

    Mike Masnick
    17 Apr 2015 | 6:24 pm
    It's no secret that the DMCA's section 1201 is extremely problematic. It's the "anti-circumvention" part of the law, that makes it illegal to circumvent "technological protection measures" even if it's for non-infringing purposes. This is a mess -- especially in an age of DRM trying to lock up everything. Try to get around it, and it's a violation of the law -- even if you're not trying to infringe on the underlying material. This is why Cory Doctorow is running a new effort to eradicate DRM with a target placed firmly on Section 1201. So it's great to see Senator Ron Wyden and Rep. Jared…

    It has barely even been a week since Rockstar released Grand Theft Auto 5 for PC gamers and it’s pushing out the first patch for this title. Some people did face a couple of issues right after the title was launched, one issue prevented the game’s installation if one’s username had certain characters in it. The first patch for GTA 5 on PC brings fixes for all of those issues.GTA 5 for PC patch 1.01 finally brings a fix for an issue that people on Windows were facing when trying to create a new username that had certain characters in it aside from alphanumeric characters,…

    Information gathered from the emails and documents leaked during the Sony hack reveal that the studio wants the Uncharted movie to be more “intense” than the National Treasure franchise, but not as “silly.” The studio also wants to have a deeper romantic storyline than the Nicholas Cage starring franchise. Leaked information also reveals that Mark Wahlberg is no longer in the running to play Nathan Drake.You might have heard last year when Sony Pictures got hacked by a group calling itself the Guardians of Peace.

  • Amazon TestDrive Bites The Dust

    19 Apr 2015 | 11:43 am
    Amazon has decided to sunset the TestDrive service which allowed people to try Android apps before they decided to buy them. Since the feature was launched back in 2011 more than 16,000 apps have allowed people to try before they buy but as more and more apps move towards a ‘free to play’ model with in-app purchases, the TestDrive service’s usage has plummeted and that’s why Amazon has decided to kill it.For those who are unaware, Amazon runs its own Appstore for Android apps. It comes pre-installed on the company’s own smartphone and tablets, while anyone with…

  • Huawei P8 goes official with premium build, respectable specs, low price

    17 Apr 2015 | 12:45 pm
    When Huawei threw its hat in the fancy wearable ring, pricing its debut Watch dangerously close to Apple Watch tags, we started fearing the budget Chinese specialist was signaling an ill-advised change of strategy. Fortunately for the company’s financial prosperity and smartphone competition, the just-announced P8 is by no means an iPhone 6 Plus match. Well, it is from design and performance standpoints, but not as far as retail costs… Continue reading Huawei P8 goes official with premium build, respectable specs, low price Related posts: Huawei Ascend P6 Price Revealed Ahead of Official…

    Is that a Huawei P8 Max in your pocket, or are you just really glad to see me? That’s one question future owners of Huawei’s newest phablet will never hear, since this bad boy’s ginormous footprint leaves little room for confusion. 6.8 inches. 187.2 mm tall and 93 mm wide. 228 grams. That’s not a phone, or a “phoneblet.” it’s a full-on voice call-enabled tablet.

    To our knowledge, the U.S. carriers that got an early invite at this exclusive release party are all more than capable of handling current orders. With the exception of a few individual versions, like 128 GB configurations or models coated in glitzy gold. Meanwhile, a sixth operator is almost ready to join the fun, picking the standard S6 up on April 24. Granted, Cricket’s modest customer portfolio indicates AT&T’s prepaid daughter company won’t noticeably elevate interest in the “next big thing.”Continue reading Samsung adds Cricket Wireless to Galaxy S6 carrier roster Related…

    Asus is taking a common-sense approach to the fitness tracker game by debuting a new watch with a 10-day battery life. Thanks to its square screen, the soon-to-be-released VivoWatch resembles a smartwatch more than, say, a Fitbit. Although details are scant, it appears to have a monochrome screen, which must help extend that all-important battery life. It has a stainless-steel build, and dust and water protection. Its features include a heart rate monitor and sleep tracker.
  • Riding in Driverless Cars Could Be Sickening

    Peter Suciu
    17 Apr 2015 | 10:49 am
    Self-driving vehicles could increase the likelihood of motion sickness in some riders, suggests a UMTRI study released last week. Motion sickness, also known as "kinetosis," is a condition marked by symptoms of nausea, dizziness and other physical discomfort. Three factors that contribute to motion sickness -- conflict between vestibular and visual inputs, inability to anticipate the direction of motion, and the lack of control over the direction of motion -- could be elevated in self-driving vehicles, the researchers noted.

    China has a new censorship tool that is causing alarm. It's known as the "Great Cannon." The University of Toronto's Citizen Lab identified the tool in a report released last week. The Great Cannon was first used in March, to launch a large-scale DDoS attack on GitHub and, Citizen Lab said. The attack apparently was designed to thwart efforts to circumvent Chinese censorship. However, the Great Cannon could "be used to attack any target anywhere in the world," said Tomer Weingarten, CEO of SentinelOne.

    LG on Thursday confirmed rumors about the basic look of its upcoming G4 flagship smartphone with a post on its Facebook page. Details about LG's forthcoming G4 flagship smartphone recently were leaked on a Korean microwebsite, generating considerable buzz on the Internet. Photos and other information were published by a number of outlets before the microsite disappeared. Almost everything revealed about the G4, other than its appearance, still falls in the category of rumor, although it's possible the leak was intentional on LG's part.
  • Opening Windows Source Code Could Improve Security

    16 Apr 2015 | 5:00 am
    Microsoft Technical Fellow Mark Russinovich raised a few eyebrows at ChefCon earlier this month, when he aired the possibility of Windows becoming an open source program. Sure, Microsoft's attitude toward the open source movement has mellowed over the years, but the prospect of the company rubbing elbows with the likes of Linux overloads the imagination. Still, there could be real benefits to making Windows an open source operating system -- among them, better security.

  • Four Security Exhibits That Won Without “Booth Babes”

    Bill Brenner
    30 Mar 2015 | 4:25 am
    After last week’s post on RSA Conference banning so-called booth babes, I heard from a lot of people who agree vendors need to find other ways to attract attention during security conferences. One reader correctly noted that this unfortunate phenomenon isn’t the result of bad intentions. It’s just that some marketing teams don’t know any better. They assume the booth babes work because they see others using them. What to do about it? Give marketing practitioners some examples of successful exhibits that succeeded without the sexism. Here are four examples of exhibits…
  • RSA’s Move to Ban Booth Babes

    The language above has been added to exhibitor contracts for RSA Conference 2015. Zenobia Godschalk, a communications practitioner in the security industry and vocal critic of so-called “booth babes” at conferences like RSA and Black Hat, dropped me a line to say RSA added the language to force vendors to stop with the skimpy clothing. It appears the years of blowback over booth babes has had an affect, at least in RSA’s case. In an email, Zenobia said, “We are thrilled to report that RSA has actually changed their language in their vendor agreements this year! It now…

    Bill Brenner
    23 Mar 2015 | 4:07 am
    Every once in awhile, someone in the security community says something on Twitter that ignites emotional discussion (some call it drama). This past weekend, it started with a comment about hugs. Someone commented that some security cons involve a lot of hugging and that it makes her uncomfortable. Someone responded with a comment about the benefits of hugs. Then all hell broke loose. Why, the first person asked, do people get offended for not wanting hugs at these events? After all, isn’t it well proven that our industry is loaded with people who suffer from social disorders?

A moment of reflection if ever there was one. It occurs to me that Liquidmatrix just had it’s 17th birthday in February. That is a helluva long time for a website of any description. It has been a lot of fun to see the site grow from an insanely (ugly) basic HTML site to a heavily trafficked site with multiple members either writing or podcasting. I’ve been making a lot of architectural changes to the site and now, I’m going to…

A method that, admittedly, is achingly simple, yet could be deemed useless if you forget to take it just once, have a stomach bug or (in some cases) take it at the wrong time. Until science delivers a better method, Pillsy wants to make the whole process a bit smarter with a new app and pill pouch combo.

The game will hit America and Europe (including the UK) on May 26th – for $24.99… so expect around £20.

    15 Apr 2015 | 11:47 pm
    An Apple analyst estimates that Apple Watch pre-orders will exceed 2.3 million units, as less than 10% of iPhone owners will buy Apple's new smartwatch. The analyst says that Apple's production capacity will reach 2-3 million units per month. The main bottlenecks are the haptic vibrator and LGD's flexible plastic-based AMOLED display. Apple will ship between 15-20 million Watches in 2015 (down below Street consensus of 20-30 devices).Apple is set to start shipping the Watch wearable device soon (on April 24th)- with its flexible plastic-based AMOLED display produced by LG Display.

  • How do I resize a batch of images on my Mac?

    I have a number of photos that I’d like to resize so they’re a bit smaller before I upload to my website. Do I need a Photoshop on my Mac to do this or is there an easier way? You can easily batch resize groups of images within Mac OS X by using the included Preview app, that is, taking a group of pictures set at one or various resolutions, and collectively resize them all together in a group to a new resolution, outputting either as the same file or as a new file saved at the newly desired resolution. Long ago you had to buy expensive third party software for this purpose, but no…

    I have an old Mac I’d like to install Mavericks on but I seem to have lost the admin password. How can I do this? Believe it or not, you don’t really need to be an admin to upgrade your Mac OS. However, you do need to boot right into the installer rather than try and launch it from your desktop. You might need a machine you DO have admin access to to create the bootable media, but that’s really all you need. Here’s what you need to do: Before being able to create a bootable OS X installer, you’ll need to do the following first: Use the Mac App Store to download…

    I was wondering if it’s possible to set up webcam to monitor my house while I’m out. What’s the best way to do this? There are a couple of options on how to do this. My very first setup, many moons ago, consisted of a laptop with a couple of USB webcams connected to it. I was using software to upload an image to an FTP server every 30 seconds. It did the job, but was a pretty flimsy setup. Today I would recommend an out-of-the-box solution called Watchbot. I have one of these little babies set up at home, and it was a doddle to set up.

    I keep seeing the word Bitcoin come up in the media and on website. What is this Bitcoin thing all about? Bitcoin is a peer-to-peer digital currency that functions without the intermediation of a central authority. It has been called a cryptocurrency because it is decentralized and uses cryptography to control transactions and prevent double-spending, a problem for digital currencies. Once validated, every individual transaction is permanently recorded in a public ledger known as the blockchain. Payment processing is done by a network of private computers often specially tailored to this…

    Teenagers have loved YouTube for years now, but the kids these days are no stranger to other social media and video platforms. Yet Pew Research Center just discovered not all these sites and apps are used equally among teens. The research firm found middle and upper-class teenagers are more likely to use Instagram and Snapchat compared to those from less well-off households. Pew surveyed over 1,060 Americans aged 13 to 17 (or their parents/guardians) over the last several months, starting in September 2014. The firm found that among households earning over $100,000 a year, 15% of teens are…

    I was in my final years of high school when the Dot Com Bubble burst. I wasn’t really into tech back then, but I remember how, before the burst, lots of people were acting like we’d finally stepped into the future, as if we’d actually made it and were living in The Jetson’s, minus all of the stuff that made that show awesome. (Flying cars! We were promised flying cars!) And then… Pop! Goodbye, future! However, I was then in my last years of college when this thing called “The Facebook” seemed to pop up over night and, suddenly, the web was reborn!

  • The Power of the #Hashtag [Infographic]

    17 Apr 2015 | 7:00 am
    The topic of hashtags is great because it is this whole world for churches to explore on what it means to engage in a conversation with people. There are several universal hashtags for Christian, of which I look into personally with #chsocm, #churchtech, and #churchmedia. It gives people the ability to talk about a topic and you the opportunity to peer into the conversation. But I wonder if having a hashtag for your church could be useful. I actually talk about this topic in my eBook By The Numbers and noted that 55% of the top 100 churches in America use hashtags on their Instagram…

    19 Apr 2015 | 12:04 pm
    Another legacy vulnerability dating from 1997 that affects all versions of Windows has been identified. The vulnerability is called Redirect to SMB. You can wait around for Microsoft to roll out a fix, which they are presently working on, or you can apply the enclosed workaround until the official patch is released. In 1997, Spangler found that introducing URLS beginning "file" would cause Windows to attempt authentication with an SMB server at the given IP address (for example, file://, which could then be used to record login credentials.

  • Ycombinator - Where unicorns are born

    6 Apr 2015 | 8:33 am
    Angel investing in tech startups is a gut wrenching and risky business. It sometimes feels like buying $25,000 lottery tickets. Most of them lose, but sometimes you invest in a “unicorn” and make 100 times your money or even more. The MIT Blackjack team figured out how to beat the odds in Las Vegas. Paul Graham from Harvard and Robert Morris from MIT teamed up with Trevor Blackwell and Jessica Livingston to found Ycombinator, and in the process figured out how to beat the odds in tech investing. Ycombinator is the largest and most successful startup incubator in history, and it was…
  • My 5 predictions for 2015 and beyond

    1 Jan 2015 | 7:49 am
    My 5 predictions for the tech world in 2015 and the next 5 years; Sensors, Indoor Location, Alternative networks, Wearable computers, the demise of cable TV. Billions of sensors will monitor everything, and become the next platform shift in computing. Your home, car, office, and even people will have special sensors that help us manage the complexities of life. Indoor Location and Positioning, enabled by Smartphones, will become a part of many existing apps, and enable new services. Think about how web maps started as a standalone application and were later embedded into all sorts of web…
  • Indoor Location startups innovating Indoor Positioning

    19 Jun 2013 | 11:26 am
    Indoor Location and Positioning technology is the Next Big Thing. It is bringing the power of GPS and Maps indoors. We spend most of our time indoors, working, shopping, eating, at the mall, at the office, on campus, etc. Apple and Google are competing on street maps, but are also working on Indoor Location. Lots of startups are going after this market too. In this post I will mention all that I am aware of. One or two winners, and a hundred broken hearts - Most web or social app markets are dominated by one or two big early players due to “First Mover Advantage” or network effects and…

In this post I will cover some of the leading large players and their technical approaches. In an upcoming post I will cover many startups that are innovating faster than the big companies. Who are the big players? Indoor Location will be a huge market, bigger than Maps or GPS. Many big companies have…
  • Why Indoor Location will be bigger than GPS or Maps, and how it works

    2 Apr 2013 | 8:07 am
    Indoor Location and Positioning will be huge! Apple recently acquired WifiSlam for its indoor mapping and positioning technology. Why? Because we spend most of our time indoors, working, shopping, eating, at the mall, at the office, on campus, etc.  Google already has Indoor Maps for many airports and shopping malls. The race is on. The explosion of Smartphones with built in sensors, accelerometer, gyro, wifi radios, and camera make indoor positioning possible.  GPS and Maps are great, but they only work outdoors and with clear line of sight to the sky. GPS was developed by the US…

  • Cyanogen Teams Up With Microsoft To Replace Google Apps

    17 Apr 2015 | 6:19 am
    If not literally, Google has somehow bloated Android by integrating some apps like Google Play Music, Google Play Books, Google Play Movies, Hangout, Google +, Youtube and so on. Since this apps are integrated into the OS, the user cannot remove them and is thus forced to use the same. On phones which have less than 500mb apps storage, these apps take up to 50 percent of the storage and sometimes even more. This move by google is widely criticised by most and thus is considered one of the drawbacks of the so-called open source Android. Recently, Cyanogen has teamed up with Microsoft to…

    Reports are pouring in that the Chinese market is now flooded with counterfeits of the stylish Mi Power Bank from Xiaomi. According to a report in Bloomberg the Chinese manufacturer could not reach its estimated target for power banks of 30 million. Instead, Xiaomi performed very poorly and sold less than half that amount. Key executives within the company are blaming Chinese OEMs for knocking off their products and distributing fakes in the market. It is still not clear what the counterfeit situation in India is, but considering the close proximity of the two countries it may not be wrong…

  • Funniest/Most Insightful Comments Of The Week At Techdirt

    Leigh Beadon
    19 Apr 2015 | 12:00 pm
    This week, we pointed out that the TSA's investigation into agents who were caught conspiring to grope passengers left little chance that they would be prosecuted. A lot of it came down to the lack of a named victim which, as an anonymous commenter pointed out in our most insightful comment of the week, is a rare conundrum enabled by the very nature of the TSA itself: They didn't have a victim because they didn't tell the victim he was a victim. In any other situation the victim of assault would know without having to be told, but here its just normal TSA procedure to be assaulted so the…

    Five Years Ago This week in 2010, the move to a new type of mass media was accelerating across the board: more people were giving up TV across the board and smart artists were trying smart business models like the classical orchestras using CwF+RtB. The old guard, as usual, was having trouble catching up: Fox and Universal both wrangled release delay deals out of Netflix; copyright threatened the best thing to come out of the second Star Wars trilogy; broadcasters were still futilely trying to push mobile TV; a book publisher was threatening US fans for ordering from overseas instead of…

  • SEC Boss Can't Keep Her Story Straight On Whether Or Not SEC Snoops Through Your Emails Without A Warrant

    Mike Masnick

    For many years now, we've been writing about the need for ECPA reform. ECPA is the Electronic Communications Privacy Act, written in the mid-1980s, which has some frankly bizarre definitions and rules concerning the privacy of electronic information. There are a lot of weird ones but the one we talk about most is that ECPA defines electronic communications that have been on a server for 180 days or more as "abandoned," allowing them to be examined without a warrant and without probable cause as required under the 4th Amendment. That may have made sense in the 1980s when electronic…
  • Bill Introduced To Fix Broken DMCA Anti-Circumvention Rules

    Mike Masnick
    17 Apr 2015 | 6:24 pm
    It's no secret that the DMCA's section 1201 is extremely problematic. It's the "anti-circumvention" part of the law, that makes it illegal to circumvent "technological protection measures" even if it's for non-infringing purposes. This is a mess -- especially in an age of DRM trying to lock up everything. Try to get around it, and it's a violation of the law -- even if you're not trying to infringe on the underlying material. This is why Cory Doctorow is running a new effort to eradicate DRM with a target placed firmly on Section 1201. So it's great to see Senator Ron Wyden and Rep. Jared…

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?

  • Disney's fabric-based 3D printer puts out squishable objects you'll want to hug

    18 Apr 2015 | 11:38 am
    The typical, consumer-grade 3D printer creates objects made of thin layers of stiff, brittle plastic fused together. Of course, hard plastic isn’t ideal for all projects, so that’s why researchers from Disney, Cornell University, and Carnegie Mellon Univeristy have developed a new 3D-printing technique that creates objects out of layers of felt.Disney’s fabric 3D printing method starts by taking a 3D model of an object, and “slicing” into printable layers—a typical part of the 3D printing process. Next, the printer laser-cuts shapes out of adhesive fabric that correspond to the…
  • How to make Linux's desktop look good on high-resolution displays

    18 Apr 2015 | 4:00 am
    Ultra-high-resolution displays with high pixel densities are all the rage now, and for good reason: They look amazing compared to conventional displays. The big problem for PC users is that a lot of software isn't designed with that level of pixel density in mind. If you're running GNOME 3 in Linux, your first boot will have you looking for your reading glasses. (Windows suffers from similar issues with high-DPI displays.) Luckily, you can save your eyes and enjoy that glorious screen you paid for with a few steps. This article will show you how to change the scaling settings for GNOME 3,…
  • Shape-shifting robot reveals secrets of Fukushima reactor

    17 Apr 2015 | 4:39 pm
    Two robots that can change their shape on command have provided the most detailed look yet inside the heart of reactor number 1 at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power station in Japan. The reactor is one of three that suffered a core meltdown after the massive tsunami that knocked electrical systems offline at the plant in March 2011, prompting a nuclear emergency that will take decades to clean up. One of the most difficult jobs for the plant’s owner, Tokyo Electric Power Co. (TEPCO), is how to safely decommission the reactors that melted down, which are much too dangerous for humans to…
  • Google's Project Loon close to launching thousands of balloons

    17 Apr 2015 | 3:51 pm
    Google says its Project Loon is close to being able to produce and launch thousands of balloons to provide Internet access from the sky. Such a number would be required to provide reliable Internet access to users in remote areas that are currently unserved by terrestrial networks, said Mike Cassidy, the Google engineer in charge of the project, in a video posted Friday. The ambitious project has been underway for a couple of years and involves beaming down LTE cellular signals to handsets on the ground from balloons thousands of feet in the air, well above the altitude that passenger jets…

    Chris Doran, Senior Product Marketing Manager, Progress Easyl Bloor argues in their Self-Service Data Preparation Spotlight that the market is ripe for self-service data preparation solutions. I want to let you in on a little secret.

    Chris Doran, Senior Product Marketing Manager, Progress Easyl Marketers still feel like they are unable to harness Big Data, but self-service data preparation might make that change. Big Data has always been a promise seems out of reach to marketers. For years we have heard how Big Data will change marketing by enabling marketers to be better at their jobs, but I rarely (if ever) hear examples of that actually happening.

    I absolutely love people data. In today’s day and age, knowing everything about your business–including the people interacting within and beyond it–is of critical importance to your success as a company. Therefore, I am always running after tools that help me learn more about the people I am working with or conversing with online. While I say I don’t accept story pitches for Techipedia, for people-focused tools in the same category as the below, I’d gladly make an exception. This is an area I am very passionate about.

  • Does Social Media Impact Sales at Tobacco and Adult Themed Stores?

    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. AddShoppers** is one of the coolest technologies I have ever seen for the e-commerce space and is the only offering I have encountered that has such a breadth of data on social ROI in online…

Seven years ago, I didn’t believe inbox zero was ever possible. Today, I sell training modules on my inbox zero process. Public relations, especially in the age of blogging, has been quite a nightmare, to the point that in 2009, I called most PR pros public relations spammers.

    Facebook cofounder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg held a question-and-answer session on his website on Tuesday for his users. The questions posed ran the spectrum from the highly relevant to the utterly bizarre; one Facebook user asked him, “If you could be any biscuit, what biscuit would you be?”  Zuckerberg, understandably, chose not to respond to that particular question.  He did, however, address a few hot-topic issues such as net neutrality, his thoughts about whether social media hinder face-to-face communication, and his work with He continues to support Net neutrality,…

    You are running a business, and you know your business through and through.  You are an expert in your field.  You know what you are talking about and how to do your job.  So why should you spend the money to get someone outside your field write the content for your website?  Well, there are several reasons, actually. You may know your field, but you may not be a good writer. If you cannot properly express your expertise in writing, no one will know how good you are at your job.  And the fact is, whether it is fair or accurate or not, people tend to judge overall intelligence by writing…

    As revolutions go, the rise of mobile gaming has been a quiet one. In just a few short years the mobile gaming sphere went from being a tiny slice of the worldwide gaming market to a fairly substantial piece of the pie. Today, it’s poised to overtake the console industry in the worldwide market and to become gaming’s largest segment by the end of 2015. It’s no surprise that some are wondering how mobile came to dominate the 90 billion dollar gaming industry – particularly when “gamer” is still an epithet that conjures up images of a relatively limited…

Earlier this week, a couple of spy shots have revealed the driver’s infotainment system, which comes with a rather peculiar surprise.

    For Dodge, the Dodge Viper has been a rather challenging journey. It started early interest, followed by the a lack of sales, all the way to returning the brand to Dodge after it was unsuccessfully marketed under the newly established SRT brand. In all fairness, the new generation Viper is certainly a potent beast and the design is remarkable. On the other hand, the price, alongside with certain quirks and issues, all made sure it wasn’t as big of a success as Dodge envisioned. Now, Dodge is launching an online Viper GTC customizer for new buyers. In a nutshell, it affords owners with a…

  • Netflix vs. Hulu Plus: If you could only have one?

    Terry White
    18 Mar 2015 | 1:04 pm
    I’ve been a Netflix subscriber for years and I have also tried a trial subscription to Hulu Plus. The thing that turned me off of Hulu (and still does) is that you pay the monthly fee ($7.99) and yet they still play ads. Also not to mention that during my trial period all the ads were bought out by the presidential candidates of 2012. I just couldn’t take any more. Three years later I’m willing to try Hulu Plus again, but is it worth it? I’d gladly pay more per month to eliminate the ads. Many of you have Hulu, Netflix or both. Tell me why? What if you could only have…

In most cases there isn’t a whole lot that’s new, but companies do sometimes find a way to improve on an already crowded product category. The Simplicam + Closeli is a standard WiFi connected webcam with a nicer design than most. It has a well thought out base/stand as well as things like a 10 foot “flat” USB cable so that you can more easily hide it in your home. This camera can be monitored from…

    Just a couple of days after the CyanogenMod 12 update hit the shores of the OnePlus  One here in India, the Yu Yureka, another device powered by CyanogenMod OS has been updated with the goodness of Lollipop. Yu had been teasing the update for a while now on Social Media and looks like it was the certification signing which held up the release for CM 12 here in India. Yu clearly mentioned in their press release that the rollout will be in the form of phases which would see all the devices receive the update in the next three days. The update will take the Yu Yureka to Android version 5.0.2,…

    We have all had that mini heart attack moment, where we have lost the track of where our smartphone is. It could just be around the corner or in our bag, but simply the thought of losing our smartphone is the worst possible thought given how private and important our phones have become today. The device which we are sure will accompany us to our deathbed, is absolutely necessary to be right in the vicinity of our eyes, and if it is not, we are pretty sure someone has stolen it, enough to send our heartbeats racing past the speed of a F1 car. To make sure you are not suffering this, Google has…

    Microsoft Lumia devices are coming in at the rate at which Samsung once may well have been super proud of. However, since 2014, Samsung has slowed down in speed when it comes to offering products focussing largely on product quality than the number that the offer, while Microsoft has gone the Samsung route by throwing a lot to the wall and hoping some of the things would go ahead and stick, making sure it makes some success out of it. The latest move in this direction has been Microsoft announcing yet another budget smartphone in the range with the moniker Lumia 540. the device has been…

    14 Apr 2015 | 11:28 pm
    Keeping in line with the strategy of making sure users have plenty of options when picking up smartphones, HTC announced the HTC E9+ in India. We are not too sure of the moniker of E9+ given that we had only the HTC E8 last year, but it perhaps makes sense cause the flagship device this year looks to be the HTC M9+ rather than the 9 which sadly was not even announced in India. the HTC M9 has received a lot of negative publicity due to the overheating issue of the device especially felt more cause of the metallic chassis which conducts heat more effectively. The E9+, on the other hand is a…

    Apple Watch pre-orders started very early in the morning on Friday, 3:01 am Eastern US time. As announced earlier, Apple will start shipping the pre-ordered smartwatches from  April 24th. As the Cupertino tech giant switches from its tradition of buyers lining up in front of Apple stores from the night before, initial consignment of Apple watches was sold out within just half an hour; looks like Apple’s online pre-orders only policy has great implication for its brand new smart wearable. Within an hour of the online order process began, the shipping dates shifted to June and a couple of…

    Flying in economy class is difficult for a great number of passengers who cannot afford to travel in a more luxurious portion of the aircraft. With seats crammed together, it is becoming increasingly arduous for flyers to get quality sleep in economy class flights. However, all that is about to change thanks to a new upright sleeping contraption that has been patented by Boeing. The product is officially being called the “transport vehicle seat back with integrated upright sleep support system”. The media, on the other hand, has dubbed the contraption as ‘cuddle chair’.

    Individuals who thought that the Lenovo’s K3 Note was the best the company has ever made probably haven’t yet heard about the Chinese company’s next smartphone, the Elephone P7000. Consumers ordering the handset during its pre-order session will be able to get a $10 discount, and will only have to pay $229.99. After the session has expired, Lenovo will be charging $239.99 for the handset. In terms of performance, the smartphone is a beast. Armed with a MediaTek MT6752 chipset (keep in mind that Lenovo’s K3 Note is equipped with the same chipset), the Elephone P7000 runs an…

The firm has announced Venue 10 7000, a device that runs Google’s Android operating system. Featuring a screen size of 10.5 inches, Venue 10 7000’s renders a resolution of 1600p, which is definitely an overkill for a tablet of that size. One of the drawbacks of owning the tablet is that it will set the user back by $499. The product also features a detachable magnetic keyboard that will up the total price to $629. Coming to the software side of…

In the past, we have setup spreadsheets and looked into other apps, but nothing did what we needed quite like this. This obviously integrates with Harvest and makes it easy to manage active projects. At first, client names didn’t show and it was hard to know what projects were being added to our schedules.

    Feeding on your nostalgia and the days of disposable cameras, Photojojo introduces the Disposable Camera app for the iPhone. How this works is you download the free app and then will have to pay US$12.99 for a roll of “film” with 27 shots. As you take photos with the app, the counter will reduce the number of shots and you also won’t be able to see how your photo turned out until you have it printed. When you’re done, you then have Photojojo print these for you and they’ll send it back to you in around 10 days. It’s a rather expensive idea but if…

  • Google taps search to recommend apps

    Helping out developers to get more eyes on their apps, Google is using its search engine to suggest apps to users. If you type something in search, they'll prompt you to install a certain app that can help fulfill the need or at least assist you with the search term. Once you install the app, you'll be redirected in the app to what you wanted to do on the web. For example, you're searching for a restaurant, Google might recommend OpenTable for you. Once installed, you'll be redirected to the reservation page of said restaurant. Developers can check out how they can be part of this…

It works mostly like the standalone app. You can look for places to eat at and see how far away they are. You'll even get to see star ratings and reviews as well as the hours they operate. There's even a "Hot & New" button to show you the trending places in the area. The update is already live but we can't say the same about the Apple Watch coming your way just yet.  Source: SlashGear

It’s time to rethink the French way of funding innovation. (Part 2 or 2) Last week, we looked at the pathetic Dailymotion saga.  Once described as “one the best French startups”, Dailymotion was funded, for a large part, with public money, then put on life support by Orange, patriotically protected by two economy ministers, and finally sold to media conglomerate Vivendi.

April 15th 2015: Nokia “agrees” to the $16.6B takeover of Alcatel-Lucent On the surface, the acqui-merger makes sense.

    One of the most important breakthroughs in biology happened in 2013, and you probably didn’t hear about it. The breakthrough came from research into bacterial “immune systems”, which allow bacteria to identify viral DNA and edit it to be harmless. Scientists adapted that research into CRISPR, a tool that allows them to swap arbitrary pieces of DNA — in nearly any organism — with synthetic sequences. It works like this: To understand why this is just a big deal, you have to understand how limited genetic modification has been. Until now, the standard technique…

    User interface design is all about how people actually interact with things. Many people go throughout the day not thinking about the elevator button they pressed, the mobile application they used, or the knob they turned in their car. I can go on all day listing things that we use, but don’t really pay attention to. The goal of user interface design is to make the user’s interaction as simple and efficient as possible. If you didn’t have a hard time using the microwave, then it was probably designed well. But let’s be honest, microwaves have terrible user interface.

Okay, maybe “getting out there” is the wrong word to use seeing as you do not really need to leave your home to look for a job. After all, you have the Internet and it is your gateway…
  • 20 Unusual WordPress Themes You May Want

    Igor Ovsyannykov
    15 Apr 2015 | 10:22 pm
    A theme can make a huge difference on how your blog would look like. WordPress is one, if not the most popular blogging platform for bloggers who want user-friendly dashboards and easy-to-manipulate features. Because of this, a lot of businesses begin with having a WordPress account first, before moving on to make a website. Bloggers and other individuals who would also like to make their presence known online can use WordPress. What I love about WordPress is that you can choose from such a wide array of themes, both paid and free ones which you can tweak to suit your preferences. Some themes…

These days though, it is an entirely different story and with more and more people carrying laptops and pricey cameras in their backpacks, there is a need for bags and backpacks that offer protection from bumps and dings that might render these equipment useless. Luckily, manufacturers have taken notice and are coming out with a vast number of backpacks and bags that are specially made to store these laptops and cameras. They not only come in…

    I’ve recently had a strange experience in our business: TIME.  Time to ponder on the lessons of nearly 20 years in the Software/IT industry. One of those lessons is, “It takes more than great software to solve a problem.” Now there are a lot of great companies out there whose slogans, whose very names, might contradict this idea, but in almost 20 years I don’t think I’ve seen a single problem facing an IT Manager that has been solved by software alone. It hasn’t been done; it can’t be done (at least not yet), because no matter how well you line up the ‘1s’ and ‘0s’, it…

    It has been known for a long time that software when released contains bugs. The nirvana is to release with no bugs at all, however to test every single use case is very unlikely if not impossible. There is always one constraint or another that stops you from testing every possible permutation of your software, and in my experience (other experiences may differ) it could be that there are so many possible permutations that testing every single one would mean the testing period would run into years – even given an increase in QA resources. Amongst these bugs are vulnerabilities within…

Those special releases are made specifically for Joomla developers to use to both test the changes in the upcoming release AND to check that their own code is still working as intended. Despite this after every release we see the same extension and template developers wait until AFTER the release before they even look at the code and test their own work.

    Carrier hotels are an integral part of global communications infrastructure.  The carrier hotel serves a vital function, specifically the role of a common point of interconnection between facility-based (physical cable in either terrestrial, submarine, or satellite networks) carriers, networks, content delivery networks (CDNs), Internet Service Providers (ISPs), and even private or government networks and hosting companies. In some locations, such as the One Wilshire Building in Los Angeles, or 60 Hudson in New York, several hundred carriers and service providers may interconnect physically…
  • Risk Management Strategies for IT Systems

    26 Jan 2015 | 3:28 pm
    Risk management has been around for a long time.  Financial managers run risk assessments for nearly all business models, and the idea of risk carries nearly as many definitions as the Internet.  However, for IT managers and IT professionals, risk management still frequently takes a far lower priority that other operations  and support activities. For IT managers a good, simple definition for RISK may be from the Open FAIR model which states: “Risk is defined as the probable frequency and magnitude of future loss”   Risk management should follow a structured process acknowledging…

  • Business Process Management in the Real World — Why It’s Important to Govern Both Automated and Manual Processes

    Steve Brasen
    13 Apr 2015 | 9:15 am
    In a perfect world, all business processes would be automated and all work tasks would be accomplished with the click of a button. This idyllic work experience seems to be the realization of Plato’s utopia…or, if you prefer, the world of the Jetsons. Regrettably, however, we clearly do not live in a perfect world. Put simply, while any repeatable process can be automated, not every process is repeatable, so automation is not a practical solution in all cases. This is particularly a problem for enterprises since business productivity is almost entirely dependent on the rapid and accurate…
  • Vectra Provides Pervasive Visibility & Analysis to Detect Cyber Attacks

    David Monahan
    9 Apr 2015 | 1:21 pm
    Though cyber attacks have been around for years, in 2014 there was an explosion in the volume of attacks and a marked increase in the losses and damages they inflicted. In 2015, this does not seem to be lightening up. In February, Anthem health care insurers were compromised, putting 80 million current and former customers and employees at risk, followed in March by Primera Blue Cross, which added another 11 million records of the same. The full extent of these breaches may not be determined for months to over a year. Along with cyber attacks, cyber-hack insurance policy issuance is also…
  • Avoiding Enterprise Mobile Management: A Futile Exercise in Procrastination

    Steve Brasen
    30 Mar 2015 | 8:38 am
    IT operations managers are cringing all around the world – desperately trying to avoid those inevitable words from their executive management: “You need to support enterprise mobility.” Their concerns are understandable. After all, IT administrators are already overtaxed with supporting desktop, server, application, and infrastructure management requirements. Asking them to layer a whole new management discipline on top of that can be a daunting prospect. IT managers who find themselves in this predicament often recognize it as an opportunity to practice the fine art of procrastination.
  • IT Cultural Transformation and The Elimination of Technology Silos—An Exercise in Efficiency or a Dream Turned Nightmare?

    Dennis Drogseth
    13 Mar 2015 | 11:48 am
    Cultural transformation and eliminating IT silos may sound like an impossible dream—and indeed, perhaps “eliminating” is too strong a word. But the reality is that IT organizations must change toward a more responsive, business-aligned culture, as well as toward a more service-aware (versus siloed) way of working. So how do you begin? A lot depends, [...]

    Enterprise Management Associates (EMA) has recognized that big data implementers and consumers rely on a variety of platforms to meet their big data requirements. These platforms include new data management technologies such as Hadoop, MongoDB, and Cassandra, but the collection also includes traditional SQL-based data management technologies supporting data warehouses and data marts; operational support systems such as customer relationship management (CRM) and enterprise resource planning (ERP); and cloud-based platforms. EMA refers to this collection of platforms as the Hybrid Data…

    The latest mid-range smartphones from Microsoft, the Lumia 640 and Lumia 640 XL, pack in Windows Phone 8.1 Update 2, the latest iteration of the Windows Phone operating system. Let's take a quick look at all the new features that this update brings and a video tour as well. At the moment, Windows Phone 8.1 Update 2 is only available out of the box on the Lumia 640 and Lumia 640 XL, but Microsoft has confirmed Windows Phone 8.1 Update 2 'GDR2' for select handsets, including the Lumia 735 and Lumia 830. Availability is currently unknown, but it's in the works.
  • Classic action-RPG Ys VI: The Ark of Napishtim journeys to Windows PC via Steam next week

    Paul Acevedo
    19 Apr 2015 | 8:26 am
    Last week, we reviewed a Steam game called Gurumin: a Monstrous Adventure from Nihon Falcom, creators of the action-RPG series Ys. Although Ys is a long-running and beloved series among old-school gamers, many Xbox players are unlikely to be familiar with it. Newer entries have largely appeared on PlayStation consoles and portables. Luckily, four Ys games are available on Windows PCs via Steam. Windows gamers now have another Ys to look forward to, as XSEED Games has announced that Ys VI: The Ark of Napishtim will be coming to Steam. We don't have long to wait either. The Ark of Napishtim…

  • Borderlands: The Handsome Collection Xbox One review

    Paul Acevedo
    18 Apr 2015 | 12:24 pm
    When Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel launched on previous-gen platforms in October of 2014, the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 had already been available for nearly a year. Many Borderlands fans like me who would otherwise be the prime target of The Pre-Sequel had already moved on to new consoles. We all hoped and/or expected Gearbox and 2K to port the game to Xbox One and PlayStation 4 where it would look and run better than any Borderlands console game before it. This year, we got our wish! Not only did The Pre-Sequel recently make its way to new-gen consoles, it also brought Borderlands 2 along…

  • The most misunderstood design pattern – Object Pool

    Michał Warkocz
    24 Mar 2015 | 7:22 am
    Have you ever heard about Object Pooling? If you are a software developer then probably you have. It is usually described as a design pattern that allows you to decrease memory allocations. Is this all Object Pooling is? Well, not even close. The basics To talk about properties of the Object Pool pattern let’s first take a look at what it actually is in code. Based on the MSDN generic the Object Pool implementation for a multithreaded application may look as follows: public class ObjectPool { private readonly ConcurrentBag _items = new ConcurrentBag(); private readonly Func _generator;…

  • Agile contracting: challenge accepted!

    Peter Horsten
    30 Jan 2015 | 11:43 am
    Agile development based on a contract that has been accepted by lawyers seems impossible. The nature of traditional purchasing and contracting processes does not match the Agile principles. 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:…
  • DreamFactory — let there be (mobile) API for everyone!

    Daniel Dekanski
    4 Dec 0001 | 4:00 pm
    Since the advent of Web 2.0, social interaction is king. Now, almost every single mobile app works in the environment of its users exchanging ideas through content authoring, comments, likes and shares. 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…

  • Changes

    5 Apr 2015 | 4:30 pm
    As the Russian hackers and others devoted to this site have noticed, it has been rather dormant for some time. To say the last two years have been rough would be like saying that World War Two was a slight disagreement. Those who know why know, those who don’t don’t. The poem IF, by Rudyard Kipling, has been a favourite of mine since I first read it as a teenager, and it pretty much describes my sense of things. Along with the parts of the samurai poem I know by heart, they have, at difficult times, been a source of some comfort. This time they fell far short. So much so I…

  • Top 10 Books to Un-Borg

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…

    Last night, I logged onto Amazon looking for a new book to download (let’s all just assume it was something really smart about innovation strategy and not the latest Young Adult dystopian future novel series, shall we?). As soon as I logged on, I was presented with a home screen image of a hand, holding a button-like contraption with a Tide logo on it. As a Prime member, Amazon tells me, I have exclusive access to Amazon Dash. I make a mental note to figure out what this is tomorrow and settle into my dystopian future novel riveting book about innovation strategy. Enter tomorrow, and my…
  • Getting Innovation ‘Unstuck’

    Jason Brown
    30 Mar 2015 | 1:45 pm
    In most mature categories, there’s a common pattern: there are pretty clear Tier 1 and Tier 2 companies, and there are worrisome smaller players. Worrisome because they have an edge – the benefit of not being all things to all people – or because they do something that the top players just can’t seem to get done. These are the grounds for the archetypal battle for growth in American commerce. If you are Tier 1, the battle plan is finding new markets and fending off number 2. If you are Tier 2, the battle plan is being a challenger brand and fending off the nips at your heels without…

    This blog post is a collaboration between Wendy Hunt, Bill Mendekitis, Gerhard Koenderink. We are better together. Like Robin Hood and Little John, Peanut Butter and Jelly, or Vodka and Tonic; whatever suits you is all that matters! The greatness of unexpected combinations has never been so beautifully captured as joyfully witnessed in the Android ‘Be Together, Not the Same’ campaign. We may like to dance to the beat of our own drum from time to time, or work in opposing spectrums, but it gets lonely, and we may not be the world’s greatest dancers, so a partner usually comes in…
  • On Concept Writing: From What’s Now to What’s Next – The Evolution of Concept Stimuli

    Paul Crowe
    16 Mar 2015 | 8:11 am
    In my last article, I shared some R&D conducted by Ipsos on how consumers consume concepts. The results indicated that consumers typically do not consume traditional concepts in a linear fashion: they almost always start with the image and then the headline, moving to the insight and then price (typically at the bottom of the concept) and then moving on to the body of the concept. This result was striking, but also not very surprising. After all, as an industry we typically expose consumers to the entire concept all at once – essentially letting them consume the concept in any order…

  • Better Law Firm Copy, Part 3: Benefits, Not Features

    Andre Sólo
    27 Mar 2015 | 1:04 pm
    Previously in this series we discussed giving your firm a voice and writing the perfect sales page. But you have lots of other types of pages to write, too—an about page, your home page, attorney profiles and probably lots of others. Each of these pages needs to shine. On some level, each one is working to convince potential clients that they should hire you. So how do you make them as strong as possible? One important way to do that is to make sure you’re focusing on benefits, not features. This advice is repeated often in the marketing world and there’s a reason for…
  • Better Law Firm Copy, Part 2: How to Write a Landing Page

    Previously in this series I talked about how to give your firm a strong voice. This time we tackle one of the most important pages on your site: a landing designed to get clients. These pages are notoriously hard to write, but when done well they bring in lots of new business. How Landing Pages Work A landing page focuses on one problem and how you can solve it. In a law firm, that means you have a landing page for each of your practice areas. Sometimes you’ll want several that focus on different types of cases—perhaps one for construction accidents and one for car…
  • Better Law Firm Copy, Part 1: You Need a Voice

    Andre Sólo

    Recently I talked about bad web copy on law firm websites. Bad copy causes two problems: it loses potential clients and it hurts SEO. The better written your website is, the more engaging it is to future clients, and the more valuable it becomes in the eyes of Google. So what does good copy look like, and how do you write it? Today is the beginning of a three part series dedicated to answering that question. And the first, most important step is developing your firm’s voice—and making sure you project that voice in everything you write. Voice Matters The “voice” of…

    Privacy rights are a divisive issue. If you’re worried that big tech companies are taking too many liberties with our  personal information, then you might be very happy to see the lawsuit that’s gaining steam against Google in the UK—and if so, the British courts have your back. A Court of Appeal just decided that the lawsuit will go forward despite Google’s protests. However, the issue at the heart of the lawsuit isn’t what you’d expect. No one spied on anyone, and no consumer information was sold to advertisers. In fact, Google’s offense looks a lot more like a technical…

    Apps are useful. A well designed app can add amazing functionality to a phone or an online experience, using little more than the right data, a 3G connection and a good user interface. With the rise of apps, however, came sales pitches. Marketers have pushed them on business owners left and right, urging every company to launch its own custom app. It’s touted as a way to “improve” your mobile website. But does it? And does every business really need one? The answers to these questions matter, because the cost of developing an app is not small. Depending on the complexity, the amount…

  • The Apple Watch has kneecapped Google and is now dominating the entire smartwatch industry (AAPL, GOOG)

    Rob Price
    19 Apr 2015 | 12:45 pm
    The Apple Watch is on fire: KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo estimates that Apple's debut smartwatch has sold more than 2.3 million units since preorders opened, MacRumors reports. The device doesn't actually start making its way to customers until April 24 at the earliest, but Kuo believes that more than 2 million people globally have coughed up to get their hands on the device. Apple hasn't released any sales data on Apple Watch sales, and it most likely won't until the company's quarterly earnings report. But this 2.3 million figure echoes what others have estimated — the research…

Here is a diagram: Apple cofounder Steve Jobs was known to have hated the idea of using a stylus. He joked about their clumsiness in a conference…

    Founding a company is one thing ... keeping control of it is another. Sometimes founders can be forced out if the board decides to do so.

Or, sometimes, founders force themself out, if they get so embattled they resign.Apple’s Steve Jobs: “Getting fired from Apple was the best thing that could have ever happened to me.” Steve Jobs was fired from Apple at the age of 30, just 10 years after he started it in his parents’ garage.

    In the years following its 2004 IPO, Google needed a way to continue its impressive growth without losing its best people to hot startups like Facebook and Twitter. Laszlo Bock, who became the SVP of Google's People Operations in 2006, writes in his new book, "Work Rules!" that he and Google's leadership spent years determining how to keep the retention rate of top talent as high as possible. They decided on a counterintuitive strategy: to "pay unfairly." As Bock writes (our bold): At Google, we ... have situations where two people doing the same work can have a hundred times difference in…

    The Sorcerer
    28 Mar 2015 | 8:36 pm
    Both Micron and Intel have jointly collaborated on making a new type of 3D NAND which allows them to provide up to 32 layers of flash NAND per package. By doing so, manufacturers can provide storage space up to 48 GB per 3D NAND chip, which will enable even the tiny M.2 form factor based SSDs to have larger amount of storage space to up to 3.5TB and up to 10TB in 2.5″ SATA/SATA Express-based SSD form factors. Apart from increasing storage space per package, it will help to decrease the cost per GB, making it even more competitive against HDDs. It will provide higher bandwidth for both…

    28 Mar 2015 | 1:16 am
    There’s news developing that Nvidia will be introducing GTX 980Ti using GM200 Core that is also used in Titan X. It is said that the Nvidia GeForce GTX 980Ti card will be releasing in few months, at the time time frame as AMD R9 390X GPU launch. With the same GM200 core as in GTX Titan X, it will be interesting to see how both of these graphic cards perform. The timeframe and certain details, however, are not yet confirmed.

    16 Apr 2015 | 5:11 pm
    While searching for a way to put emojis on my Twitter posts, as it seems that it only works on iOS devices, I stumbled on the brand new Google Handwriting Input app which was released yesterday. As it name says, the app converts handwritten words and shapes into text input on your Android device. It supports 82 languages, cursive and printed writing and will work with or without a stylus. Google Handwriting Input easily recognized my terrible handwriting and even offered auto-spell correction.I’ve been using it since yesterday on my Nexus 5 and what a joy it is to use. I’m very…

    14 Apr 2015 | 7:50 pm
    Sorry Google, but I had enough of the sluggish and buggy performance of Chrome, the web browser I loved for so many years. I remember the good feeling when I switched over from Firefox. Back then, it was like being on cloud 9 – web pages loaded fast, they looked good and having more than 7 tabs didn’t force my PC to kill it self. The experience was even more delightful on Linux. That was years ago. Now, it’s a complete nightmare. Every time I launch Chrome and open Gmail, Gmail, yes your own site, it would take a good 5 to 8 seconds for it load. In Internet terms,…

    5 Apr 2015 | 10:55 pm
    After receiving the Android 5.1 update via OTA last week I calmed down. Confidence shot up by a couple of points knowing that my Nexus 5 once more is sporting the latest version of Android. I should be. I’ve never had issues with Android updates in the many years of using Nexus devices. Until now. While the performance and battery consumption have been improved, well as far as I can tell, my Nexus 5 has seen an increase of restarts and crashes. At first I thought it was because of the many apps I cycle through on a typical day. But no. Even after clearing the previously running apps, my…

    A very interesting piece on Reuters, experts from the American Academy of Pediatrics have come out with a study that says random drug testing in schools is not recommended. It’s expensive, does little to stop substance abuse and may have even led to unwanted effects on students. Could the same be said of random drug testing at the workplace?

Still, it’s hard not to view the growth of the two leading non-hydro renewable energy technologies – wind and solar – in relation to each other.We reported recently that wind grew quickly in 2014, but solar had itself a very good year as well.

    Is wind power coming on fast enough to help shift the world off fossil-fuel-generated electricity before temperatures get too high? Depends on how you look at it.In 2014, Asia, Europe and North America – the usual suspects when it comes to wind power– had solid-to-great installation years. Meanwhile, Latin American (namely, Brazil) became a big-time player for the first time, and it all added up to a solid year for global wind.All told, 51.5 gigawatts (GW) was installed in 2014, the first time the world cracked 50 GW in a single year, and cumulative global capacity now stands at 369.6 GW,…

    One of the most important breakthroughs in biology happened in 2013, and you probably didn’t hear about it. The breakthrough came from research into bacterial “immune systems”, which allow bacteria to identify viral DNA and edit it to be harmless. Scientists adapted that research into CRISPR, a tool that allows them to swap arbitrary pieces of DNA — in nearly any organism — with synthetic sequences. It works like this: To understand why this is just a big deal, you have to understand how limited genetic modification has been. Until now, the standard technique…

  • Change or Spoof a MAC Address in Windows or OS X

    Aseem Kishore
    1 Apr 2015 | 11:24 pm
    Every NIC (Network Interface Card) has a unique MAC address (Media Access Control). This applies to all types of network cards, including Ethernet cards and WiFi cards. The MAC Address is a six-byte number or 12-digit hexadecimal number that is used to uniquely identify a host on a network. An example of a MAC address is 1F-2E-3D-4C-5B-6A and it falls into the Layer 2 networking protocol of the OSI model. In today’s networks, ARP, or Address Resolution Protocol converts a MAC address to a Layer 3 protocol address, such as an IP address. A MAC address can also be called a Physical Address.

  • What Makes a Great Web Developer?

    John Morris
    17 Apr 2015 | 9:27 am
    What makes a web developer great? I think most people think about this the wrong way and get too focused on technical skills. Here’s my reasoning: What Most Web Developers Get Wrong The standard advice is that a great web developer is defined by how technically skilled he is. Ask most seasoned developers this question and you’ll get responses like: “Deep knowledge of HTML and CSS” “Excellent debugger” “Knows PHP like the back of his hand” And, so on. But, to me, those things aren’t what make a great web developer. Certainly, your technical…

But for some, such as massive elliptical galaxies, their star-forming days are now over. All of their available gas has already been turned into more than a hundred billion stars.

    It's said that just about anything that's broken can be fixed with one of two things. If something moves when it shouldn't, you need duct tape to hold it in place. If it doesn't move when it should, lubricant is what you need. Apple, it seems, has a different approach. Forget screws and clips; these days Apple tech is just held together with glue. And we’re not talking about just a bit of glue -- we're talking tons of the stuff. Gallons of adhesive pumped into laptops, tablets and phones, holding everything in place and -- ultimately -- making things incredibly awkward to repair. Anyone…

    Even if living in a digital era has lead us to communicate via text or email and to advertise via mobile devices or the web, print marketing is more important than ever. Marketers have realized that branded print material should be an integral part of any marketing mix. Therefore, in order to be successful, businesses shouldn’t fail to include valuable print marketing tools such as flyers (which you can order at very affordable prices online, like you can do here), brochures, catalogs, newsletters and business cards in their offline marketing channels.

    Stan Lee is kind of a living legend of our time.

    17 Apr 2015 | 12:08 pm
    First introduced last year, Tool Pen is sort of a multi-tool, but designed to deal with all manner of screwing jobs and it was the first of such tool that ultilizes the concept of pop-a-point pencil, meaning a bit is pop out to swap for the bit you desire. It was a brilliant concept which eliminates the many screwdrivers and hex tools you need to carry, replacing them with just one pocket-friendly pen-like device. Fast forward to today, the Taiwanese outfit, mininch, is back with a new derivative, simply called Tool Pen mini. As the product name suggests, it is the Tool Pen struck by a shrink…

    I have to be honest. The idea of a Nano Tech Wireless Heated Mug tickles my soft spot. I won’t easily succumb to sale pitches, but the idea of having a hot beverage for up to 45 minutes, even in cold weather, certainly had me at hello. Heated mugs aren’t new. We have seen USB-powered version, plate warmer type and more, but this one from Green Lama is different. It is has a rechargeable battery that once you get it charged, it can keep your beverage, coffee or whatever, hot for 45 minutes. And when the battery is depleted, just recharge it like you would with any USB-powered gadgets.

It just feel good to know it is a real thing and not something that sits in the archive and fades into oblivion.

    Read a post the other day that said we would soon reach Peak Code (see ROUGH TYPE Peak Code? post). In his post, Nick Carr discussed a NBER paper (see Robots Are Us: Some Economics of Human Replacement, purchase required). The paper implied we will shortly reach peak code because of the proliferation of software reuse and durability which will lead to less of a need for software engineers/coders. Peak code refers to a maximum amount of code produced in a year that will be reached at some point, afterwards, code production will decline. Software durability, hogwash Let’s dispense…

  • Becoming Steve Jobs

    Joe Kinsella
    2 Apr 2015 | 6:59 pm
    Two things made me want to read Brent Schlender’s Becoming Steve Jobs after its release last week: 1) all the media talk from Apple insiders that this was the “real Steve Jobs”, and 2) its simple and compelling premise: exploring how a reckless and arrogant entrepreneur became one of the greatest business leaders of our time. While it was a good read, I couldn’t help but be slightly disappointed that it was more about the former (showing a new side of Steve Jobs) and less about the later (how Steve evolved). Let me dispense with what I didn’t like. If you read Walter Isaacson’s…
  • But What About the Hole?

    Joe Kinsella
    29 Mar 2015 | 9:50 am
    I've been reading Brent Schlender's Becoming Steve Jobs this weekend, which is being promoted as the "real story" of the Apple CEO. There is no doubt Walter Isaacson didn't make too many Apple friends with his Steve Jobs biography, which portrayed Jobs as a sort of brilliant but high functioning sociopath. I'll post a review when I'm done but felt the need to pass on this anecdote. The spring after the 1996 acquisition of NeXT, Larry Ellison saw the then Apple CEO, Gil Amelio, at a party and introduced him to Gina Smith, a technology journalist. By this time Steve Jobs had concluded Amelio…

While I have attended many stand-ups over the years, I have an odd footnote in my personal history: I was at the very first stand-up. The location was 25 Corporate Drive in Burlington, Massachusetts (current headquarters of Acquia), and the year was 1992 or 1993. I was a fresh-faced college graduate who had recently transferred to a small software team in Easel Corporation to join two talented…
  • Using Trello for Hiring

As time went on and the company was formed, I found new uses for Trello, such as managing my sprints, roadmap, personal to-do list and even product documentation. As we started ramping our 2015 hiring, our HR manager and I decided to try a new use for Trello: as a hiring board. The model we adopted was simple: cards as candidates and color-coded labels to denote our different sources (e.g. referral, recruiter, internally…
  • MVF: The Importance of Not Over-investing

    Joe Kinsella
    21 Mar 2015 | 10:24 am
    The Lean movement has made everyone aware of the importance of a feedback loop in driving the success of businesses, products and features. By driving tight and iterative Build-Measure-Learn loops, organizations can limit the risk of their investments and not overcommit resources toward initiatives that either fail or do not deliver the required results. I have blogged in the past on the importance of the Minimum Viable Feature (MVF) in my company, but recently noticed we started to drift from our roots in one important aspect: over-investing in trying to build great software behind our MVFs.

    There is nothing like the feeling of being useless when something is just out of reach, but that should not be an issue anymore with the ODii grabber gadget. Apparently, not all grabbers are made equal, as this one can get into small spaces and pick up the tiniest things with ease, while on the […]

    Typewriters, rotary dial telephones, cassette tapes, video stores and spools of film- just some items of which next-generation children won’t experience or understand. Technology is a major progress driver in every industry, especially music. Technologies like Napster in the late 1990s and the iPod in the early 2000s, completely revolutionized the industry and changed how […]

    Jacques Coetzee: Staff Reporter

    Making music is like solving a puzzle. There are structures and rules you need to follow. But unlike puzzles, music requires you to apply the right-side of your brain instead of your left. Stir these two together however, and you just might find something special. Cadence is an open-ended puzzle game brought to life by […]

    Watermark Consulting’s 2014 Customer Experience ROI Study confirms what marketers have always instinctively believed: providing a good customer experience makes sound business sense. Leaders in customer experience outperformed the Standard & Poor 500 Index by 26 percent, while laggards actually posted negative returns of -2.5 percent. Here’s the issue: Personalisation is one of the most […]

    Market forces are driving data awareness as businesses realise that they can derive significant value from effectively analysing data and applying the findings to decisions and actions, and as regulators tighten rules around how data should be managed. ‘Big data’ is still used as a buzzword in business. But data has always been available – […]

  • What is VoIP?

    Simon Jones
    20 Mar 2015 | 9:39 am
    Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP), is a collection of technologies that allow people to communicate (voice, fax, SMS, voice-messaging) over the internet rather than through the dedicated public switched telephone network (PSTN), and is the direction in which all communication is travelling. The phoneline and phones in many people’s homes and businesses continue to use the similar technologies to those available a century ago, with analogue audio sent along a copper wire and only digitised about the phone company’s digital concentrator at the end of the road. However, we live in…

  • Thousands fooled by Facebook scam claiming to offer free Qantas flights

    16 Mar 2015 | 6:55 am
    More than 100,000 internet users have been fooled by a fake Qantas Facebook page, which claimed to offer free first class flights. The page attracted at least 80,000 likes and over 100,000 shares by claiming to offers travellers the chance to win free flights for a year, before it was taken down by Facebook. The fake page is designed to attract a large number of likes before switching into promoting other dubious products and services for which users had not subscribed. Despite selling pages being against Facebook’s terms and conditions, a page with more than 100,000 likes could attract…

    LG have long been on the coat tails of their Korean neighbours Samsung. The Flex and G3 models have failed to get close to sales of the Samsung Galaxy and the brand has fallen down to fifth in the United States mobile market share. But all that could be about to change… The brand have been showing off a range of devices at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona and are confident that they’ll ruffle a few feathers, particularly with the G4 which is all set to be “radically different” to anything LG have done before.

    For those of you who participated in one of those tournament things, you’ll be amused to hear that the other half’s bracket blew up when Iowa State lost the second game of the first day. Perhaps he should have picked a different game and maybe used a different search engine. I don’t know what the weather is like in your part of the world, but we’ve been dealing with spring for about a month now. That always means lots of new things (and a few recycled old ones). One that caught everyone’s attention was a patent that was granted to Boeing for a force field.

    Chicken Little was right. Twice. Maybe even three times. The other half wants to know when he can get high speed Internet and whether the FCC’s new rules apply or whether he needs to go send a dingo to Congress by jetpack. One of the reasons I don’t use Gmail all that much is because there are a gazillion people who have sent me email and I have no idea who they are or why they wrote to me five years ago. I have to admit that it’s a typical situation – I could have done a little digging and figured it all out – but the people at CNet posted how-to turn off the…

    A month or so ago, Apple announced its Apple Pay mobile payments system and there was a lot written about how it was going to change the world with regard to using your phone to pay in stores. Not so fast, though: two major drug store chains have said “No, thanks“. Of course, the competition isn’t having things much better; CurrentC was hacked last week and it’s still in beta-testing. But I think the stories are missing the point. The other day, we were in a grocery store and instead of pulling out his card, the Other Half actually pulled a couple of bills out of his…

Archived versions of Apple's homepage on the Wayback Machine only go back to October 1996, a shame given that Apple had a website up and running for many years prior. Continue reading...

The method, which would effectively asphyxiate death row inmates by forcing them to breathe pure nitrogen through a gas mask, is meant to be the primary alternative to lethal injection, The Washington Post reports.

  • William Shatner apparently thinks a Kickstarter-funded water pipeline will save California

    18 Apr 2015 | 10:35 am
    Is William Shatner crazy, or did he just make a bad joke? You might start asking yourself that question after hearing the latest idea from the 84-year-old star: a Kickstarter-funded, $30 billion water pipeline to save California from its devastating drought. In an interview with Yahoo Tech's David Pogue, Shatner says, "I’m starting a Kickstarter campaign. I want $30 billion ... to build a pipeline ... Say, from Seattle. A place where there’s a lot of water. There’s too much water." He adds, "How bad would it be to get a large, 4-foot pipeline, keep it above ground — because if it…
  • Verizon's 'customizable' FiOS TV packages violate contract, says ESPN

    18 Apr 2015 | 8:44 am
    ESPN is fighting back just hours after Verizon announced plans to offer new FiOS TV packages that split up channels into cheaper, semi-a la carte bundles. The massive sports network, owned by the Walt Disney Company, said in a statement provided to Recodethat Verizon's new bundles "would not be authorized by our existing agreements." The statement continues, "Among other issues, our contracts clearly provide that neither ESPN nor ESPN2 may be distributed in a separate sports package."

    Get a large group of people together at an event with even the faintest whiff of commercial underpinnings, and you're going to get some fascinating promotional events. Whether it's the Bates Motel at SXSW or the annual flood of tie-ins at Comic-Con, they're an opportunity for companies to hawk their wares by creating one-of-a-kind experiences that will get audiences talking. But here's the dirty little secret: sometimes they're also pretty fun, and here at Star Wars Celebration EA has a booth in place to promote its upcoming game Star Wars: Battlefront.

  • 5 film techniques J.J. Abrams will use to showcase his Star Wars universe

    Philip Robibero
    18 Apr 2015 | 8:00 am
    One of the great pleasures of the new Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer is seeing a new director inject his own flourishes into an already visually distinctive series. The Star Wars visual catalog has a few staples that have stayed consistent throughout the series: think transitional wipes and pilot POV shots. Unfortunately, the prequels saw George Lucas expand the toolset with a lot of uninspired tricks: slow zooms on wide shots, Barbara Walters glow, and a stubborn use of a locked-down camera. From the looks of the new Star Wars trailer, J.J. Abrams and his cinematographer, Dave Mindel,…

Their findings are based on the responses of 26,086 people from 157 countries and consist of full-stack developers, mobile developers, and front-end developers.  Perhaps the most interesting finding is that Apple's new 'Swift' programming language - despite being less than a year old - is programmers' "Most Loved"…
  • Amazon simplifies machine-learning with AWS

    10 Apr 2015 | 7:49 am
    (Image Credit: iStockPhoto/Pogonici) Not content with letting Microsoft grab the headlines this week for cloud news, Amazon has debuted a new 'Machine Learning' service during the AWS Summit in San Francisco which intends to let developers build smart, data-driven applications which can "learn" based on past data.  Machine Learning is a complicated area of expertise which - unless you've spent years studying data science – is out-of-reach for most developers. Large companies such as Netflix have been using AWS for machine-learning about its users' viewing habits, but it's hard work…
  • Microsoft launches Hyper-V containers for cloud performance

    (Image Credit: iStockPhoto/filadendron) Microsoft's Hyper-V containers will allow applications to be run at tremendous scales, anywhere, similar to what Google has offered for many years. Of course these containers still require an OS in order to run them, and that's where Microsoft Nano Server steps-in... Nano Server is a version of its Windows Server without all the "clunk" - such as a user interface - in order for apps to run at peak performance. In the case of Google, the company uses 'CoreOS' which is a stripped-version of Linux and the company led a $12 million round of funding for it…

    (c) Unless you’ve been hiding under a stone you’ll have noticed that the world has gone mobile. According to industry analysts at Gartner, apps developed for mobile devices will outnumber those developed for the PC by four to one in 2015.

  • “I got 99 problems but mobile malware ain’t one”: Verizon’s verdict

    14 Apr 2015 | 4:58 pm
    (c) The latest Data Breach Investigations Report (DBIR) from telco giant Verizon has argued that mobile devices are not a preferred vector in data breaches, among other interesting findings. The 70 page behemoth is a refreshing read, written as it is in a relatively informal style and not the insomnia-inducing texts of competitors. Hence the title for the DBIR mobile section – “I Got 99 Problems and Mobile Malware Isn’t Even 1% of Them”. One interesting fact came in the location of malware; Android is the most popular device for malware…
  • Employers must build a security strategy around “indifferent” generation-mobile employees

    13 Apr 2015 | 5:03 pm
    (c) You can’t teach an old dog new tricks, as the saying goes. But increasingly in terms of mobile security best practice, you can’t teach young dogs new tricks either. For the millennial workforce, employers have got to accept they will be “indifferent” over security and fit policy in around that, rather than force them to comply. If you don’t do this, you risk missing the tangible productivity benefits of a mobile workforce. According to a report from Aruba Networks, six out of 10 ‘generation mobile’ workers are happy to let…
