    Today at a press conference in San Francisco, Microsoft announced the new version of their flagship operating system, called Windows 10. (Yes, t-e-n. I don't know.) With the new version of the operating system, they'll be unifying the application platform for all devices: desktops, laptops, consoles, tablets, and phones. As early leaks showed, the Start Menu is back — it's a hybrid of old and new, combining a list of applications with a small group of resizable tiles that can include widgets.

  • Quick Caps made to thwart bicycle wheel thieves

    29 Sep 2014 | 2:37 pm
    While quick-release hubs certainly make it easier for cyclists to remove and reinstall their wheels when doing things like fixing flats, they also make it very easy to steal those same wheels. As a result, riders typically have to remove the front wheel when locking up their bike, or run a secondary cable lock from it to the main U-lock. Quick Caps, however, are designed to make doing so unnecessary – they're little padlocks for the quick-release levers. ..

    A few years back, mathematician and musician Jules Hotrique combined two passions to develop a new arrangement of musical notes called the dualo principle. After creating a number of keyboard instrument prototypes based on this patented geometric model, he joined forces with his computer engineer and musician friend Bruno Verbrugghe to form the Dualo Company in 2011.

    Having arguably conquered television—or, at least, made a sizable dent in it, thanks to original shows like House of Cards and Orange Is the New Black—it was only a matter of time before Netflix turned its attentions to original movie content. Turns out, that time will be August 2015. That's when the company will reportedly debut Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon: The Green Legend on its streaming service simultaneously with the movie's release in Imax theaters in a move that content chief Ted Sarandos hopes will prove to studios that "the sky doesn't fall" if Netflix has earlier…

    As expected Microsoft has formally announced the new version of Windows. As no-one expected it will be called ‘Windows 10’ not Windows 9. Why? Because Microsoft claims it represents such a significant leap over Windows 8 that calling it Windows 9 would not do it justice. I can hear your groans now, but in Microsoft’s defense Windows 10 has some major (and long awaited) improvements.

Here are some potential employee blunders that should be addressed in a bring your own device (BYOD) policy: BYOD blunders First and foremost, a poorly defined (or poorly enforced) BYOD policy leads to security leaks.

    30 Sep 2014 | 7:09 am
    A week later, I still find myself thinking about ESPN’s suspension of Bill Simmons. The fact that it’s based on what was said on a podcast. The fact that Simmons is now effectively muzzled and can’t say a word about the suspension (he can’t even use his own Twitter account, let alone podcast). The absolute insanity of the suspension being longer than Ray Rice’s original suspension. The whole thing. Amy Davidson brings up a couple good points.

  • I'd never want to buy a $10k watch at an Apple Store. How could Apple change the stores so that I would?

    It’s a good question — one I’ve been thinking about as well recently (hat tip to Megan for first bringing it up). While I do believe they will sell the Apple Watch in Apple Stores, it does seem like it may make sense to open some smaller, Apple Watch-specific stores in certain markets. Ideally, these would be situated in the high-end shopping areas where high-end watch stores currently reside. Stay tuned for more thoughts on this.

    Today the Federal Communications Commission eliminated its sport blackout rules, which prevented cable and satellite television providers from showing sporting events that were blacked out on a local station. It's common practice in the NFL to black out football games locally if the stadium didn't sell enough tickets. The ruling now removes government protections for the NFL's policies (the NFL can continue to black out local broadcasts). The FCC's decision is based on "significant changes" to the industry over the 40 years since the rules were adopted. Television has replaced ticket sales as…

    As the markets for tablets and smartphones continue to mature and saturate, I believe we’re heading towards some important changes. Specifically, I think the time for mass market smartphones and tablets is rapidly nearing an end. It’s not that we won’t have any big products, but post-iPhone 6, I think it’s going to be much harder for any vendors (including Apple) to create something that has enormous mass appeal. The reasons for my thinking are pretty simple. As people have become more comfortable and familiar with smartphones (and tablets), they’ve started to realize the specific…

  • How it Happened and What it Was Like to Spend Two Hours with Steve Wozniak, Founder of Apple

    8 Sep 2014 | 12:07 am
    By: Hillel Fuld (@Hilzfuld) Many years ago (ok, not that many but 5 years in virtual land is a lot!), I decided I was going to interview people who inspire me. 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? Well,…
  • How and Why to Interview Superstars with Twitter and Google+

    10 Aug 2014 | 10:03 pm
    By: Hillel Fuld As you might have noticed, I have been posting interviews with some of the shakers of the Web and tech industries. This is something I started doing a while back. While these interviews have been a great experience for me to learn from some of the biggest names out there, the main advantage has been the relationships I have created. I love the fact that I can DM Alyssa Milano or joke around with Robert Scoble. I have spoken to Mike McCue on the phone (he is just as nice as online), and I am always learning from Chris Pirillo. Why am I telling you this? Because, as awesome as…
  • An Interview with the Legendary Damian Burns, Google’s Director of Global Strategic Partnerships

    25 Jul 2014 | 12:15 am
    By: Hillel Fuld (@hilzfuld) As you might have noticed, I like to interview people. Really important people. I literally made myself a list of individuals that I would one day, somehow, hope to have the privilege to interview. Some of them were a little out there. You know, people like the actress Alyssa Milano (remember Who’s the Boss? Good times.), Om Malik, the father of tech journalism, and even Steve Wozniak who founded this small company called Apple with his buddy Steve Jobs in their garage. I set myself some pretty high goals and so far, so good. Alyssa Milano One of the people…
  • iPhone 6: Say Goodbye to Cracked Screens, Scratched Displays, or Color Distortion of Any Kind

    8 Jul 2014 | 11:21 pm
    By: Hillel Fuld (@hilzfuld) Listen up, folks. I am not a big fan of product leaks or Apple rumors. I mean, we all know that prior to every big Apple launch of any kind, the rumor mill goes into high gear. How often are those rumors accurate? Not very often… But then there are some sources that you just know are reliable. Marques Brownlee is one such source. And this video of the iPhone 6 display is obviously legit so can we just put that behind us and discuss the topic at hand? Great. According to many sources, the iPhone will introduce the first display on a mobile phone made out of…
  • The One Android Flaw that Kept me on iPhone but Is Now Fixed in Android L

    3 Jul 2014 | 6:58 am
    By: Hillel Fuld (@hilzfuld) Listen, I have no intention of starting an iOS vs Android debate here so if that is why you opened this article, allow me to introduce you to the little X in the corner… I use an iPhone 5S as my daily phone and until recently, there was no way I was going to replace that with an Android device. Yes, I am fully aware that some of the newer Android flagship devices are more impressive than the iPhone, in both personality and looks, but for me, despite many MANY attempts, I stuck with iPhone. I have played with the Nexus 5. I have even played with the HTC M8.

    The CDC has confirmed the first Ebola case diagnosed in the United States. CDC Director Tom Frieden said the patient had traveled from Liberia, where he contracted the virus, leaving the country on Sept. 19 and arriving in the U.S. on Sept. 20 by plane. He showed no signs of the disease while traveling, Frieden said. Symptoms began to show on Sept. 24, and he's now "critically ill" at the Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital in Dallas. Frieden said several times that an asymptomatic patient is not contagious, making the risk to fellow airline passengers extremely low. "Ebola doesn't spread…

  • Analysis Suggests More Than Half Of Google & Microsoft's Patents Likely Invalid Thanks To The Supreme Court

    Mike Masnick
    30 Sep 2014 | 2:21 pm
    Over the last few months, since the Supreme Court's ruling in Alice v. CLS Bank, we've been noting the good news that the courts seem to be interpreting the ruling to invalidate a ton of software patents. Even some trolls have decided to just give up after seeing how the Alice ruling is being interpreted. A new analytical study of patents held by big tech companies, done by ktMINE, suggests that more than half of Google and Microsoft's patents are invalid under Alice. The biggest loser of all, however, may be Oracle, with an astounding 76% of all of its patents vulnerable to the ruling.
  • Imagine How The FBI And NSA Would Flip Out If Tor Browsing Was Built Into Firefox Or Chrome?

    Mike Masnick
    30 Sep 2014 | 1:12 pm
    All last week, we saw law enforcement types freaking out about the news that Apple and Google were making phone encryption a default. While a good step in the right direction, this was really kind of a minor thing, only protecting a small bit of information -- and yet law enforcement folks went nuts. So just imagine how crazy they'll go if Tor were embedded directly into Firefox as the default "private browsing mode," as was recently hinted at by Tor exec director Andrew Lewman. Even though private browsing mode still isn't even used that much, adding Tor automatically to it would be quite…
  • The Worst Legal Advice Ever, Presented By A Clueless Blogger For An Insurance Company

    Mike Masnick
    30 Sep 2014 | 12:07 pm
    The internet is chock full of bad legal advice, but it's a bit odd to see it posted on a site for a large insurance company. Insurance company The Hartford* apparently has a website full of "small business" advice. This, by itself, is not a bad idea. Providing good content that people want is something that many companies should be doing. But the key here is "good content." Which brings us to the following article that's been passed around a few times among lawyers on Twitter. Officially, it's an article describing "5 Easy Ways to Get Sued Over Online Content & Social Media" written by…
  • MPAA Tries To Ignore The Fact That The Study It Paid For Reveals Very Few Top Films Are Available On Netflix

    Mike Masnick
    30 Sep 2014 | 11:05 am
    One of the key points that many people have been making for decades is that copyright infringement likely wouldn't be such a big problem if they actually made works more available in convenient and reasonable ways. This was never an excuse for infringement, but an explanation and a suggestion on ways to minimize the amount of infringement happening. For the past few years, the big legacy copyright holders have been trying to spin things, claiming that they've made stuff "available," and since there's still "infringement" they obviously need new laws to better "protect" their works. They're…

    Theresa May, the current UK Home Secretary, has announced that, if re-elected, her party (the Conservatives) will push for "extremist disruption orders" which would effectively ban people declared "extremist" (using a very broad definition) from using social media or appearing on TV. Extremists will have to get posts on Facebook and Twitter approved in advance by the police under sweeping rules planned by the Conservatives. They will also be barred from speaking at public events if they represent a threat to “the functioning of democracy”, under the new Extremist Disruption Orders. The…

Namely, certification from China’s FCC equivalent,… Continue reading Samsung Galaxy A3 struts its (metallic) stuff ahead of formal intro Related posts: Metallic Samsung Galaxy A7 expected to sport 720p 5.5-inch display Metallic Samsung SM-A500 moves…

  • Scribbleton Has a Ton of Potential

    30 Sep 2014 | 5:00 am
    Scribbleton is a very infant -- as in alpha -- release of an innovative note-taking app for Linux that provides cross-platform access with Windows and Apple computers. It creates a personal wiki for storing everything from quick notes to detailed checklists to outlines. It creates links between pages in Scribbleton. Think of this as an easy-to-use database to create links between words, phrases and pages. You can just as easily use Scribbleton to store snippets or volumes of text and quickly locate cross-referenced information.
  • Consumers Fed Up With Data Breaches

    30 Sep 2014 | 5:00 am
    Consumers are beginning to lose their patience with the custodians of their personal information. Survey results from 2,000 consumers released last week by HyTrust, suggest that 51 percent of those polled would bolt from any business involved in a data breach that compromised personal information such as address, Social Security number or credit card details. Suspicions have been growing among consumers that businesses aren't doing enough to protect the data they eagerly collect from their customers, said HyTrust President Eric Chiu.

Most everyone can find a few new features they can put to work to make their iPhones better than ever. Some are handy, some have "finally" arrived, and some are just plain cool. Here's your guide to the most useful and welcome iOS 8 changes to messages, keyboard, contacts and email functionality.

    There's just never a dull moment here in the Linux blogosphere, and the last week or so has been a perfect illustration. Not only did the Shellshock bug hit the proverbial fan, but the ever-burning Systemd flames flared even brighter, thanks to the addition of some fresh fuel. What was that fuel, you may wonder? Oh, none other than the little tidbit of news from the Debian team that it's decided to make the GNOME desktop default again -- and that Systemd was at least part of the reason.

    Akamai’s Prolexic Security Engineering and Research Team (PLXsert) is tracking the spread of Spike, a new malware toolkit that poses a threat to embedded devices, as well as Linux and Windows systems. 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…

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 already has. Despite all we know about Evans, the mainstream…

    If you look closely, the 1996 Tim Burton film “Mars Attacks!” offers us a few security lessons. Let the following clip play as I run through some examples… Lesson 1: If you release a white dove over someone’s head before you verify who you’re dealing with, you have failed to practice due diligence. The resulting bad press could damage your brand. Lesson 2: Regarding Jack Nicholson’s speech about two out of three branches of the government still working: Layers of security may be smart, but if it’s badly configured and government-issued, it…

    Although these acronyms and the constant evolution of cellular and wireless network technologycan be baffling, the important thing to understand is that a variety of networks are used to provide data connections to your users ’ devices. As with the physical and diversity - related challenges of the devices themselves, you need to be cautious about assumptions for these connections.Speed or throughput of the network connection is an obvious constraint.

    As you might imagine, the networks responsible for bringing content and services to a mobile device are also notably different from the networks to which you connect laptops and desktops. Many contemporary mid - and high - end mobile devices include WiFi data connectivity, and when used in that mode, the device is connecting to a local access point, which, in turn, is most likely connected to a regular broadband - grade connection. In this case, the network connection for the device is fast, reliable, and low in latency — just as it is for the other computers and devices that are connected…

    Less than 5 years ago, when most mobile devices used their own embedded or simple real - time operating systems, it appeared to mobile web developers as though there were as many operating system versions as there were models of devices. Given that these operating systems tended tocontain their own varied browser implementations, with no option for users to upgrade them or install alternatives, the challenge of delivering a reliable web experience to all of them was almost insurmountable. Such browsers were typically very limited, and often derived from their WAP browser precedents, provided…

Very old mobile devices can be easily recognized by their larger, ungainly form, but following a period in the 1990s and 2000s, during which manufacturers sought to develop ever smaller devices, most modern devices are now of broadly similar size and weight. Not by coincidence, this is about the size that fi ts comfortably into an adult hand.A limited selection of device form factors tend to prevail in today ’ s mobile market place. Some…

    30 Sep 2014 | 9:00 am
    New research presented this week at the ESMO 2014 Congress in Madrid has shown that chemotherapy is safe during pregnancy (and that radiation therapy only carries a low risk). Dr Frederic Amant from University Hospitals Leuven in Belgium said that as long as chemo was given after the first trimester, there were no negative impacts on babies’ development. ‘Fear about the risks of chemotherapy administration should not be a reason to terminate a pregnancy, delay cancer treatment for the mother, or to deliver a baby prematurely,’ he said. Until recently, fear of harming the foetus has…

    We all know that HTC is going to be responsible for the Nexus 9 (or we think we do), but it looks like its not avoiding other things because details of a new HTC-made phablet have leaked: The HTC One M8 Max. According to reports from Chinese site My Drivers,  the device will come with 3GB of RAM, a 2.7GHz quad-core Snapdragon 805 processor, a 5.5-inch QHD display, an 18MP camera with OIS, and a 3,000 mAh battery. It makes sense that HTC would be releasing a larger version of its flagship soon, this time last year we saw the original HTC One Max and we’ve been hearing rumours for a…
  • A Windows 9 upgrade may cost Windows 7 users £20

    Yesterday an Indonesian Microsoft executive confirmed that Windows 9 would be a free upgrade for Windows 8 users, but details on upgrade options for users of older software were mysteriously absent. Now it seems that Windows 7 users might be able to get their hands on Windows 9 for a mere £20. This comes from Russian leaker Wzor who claims that the upgrade will cost somewhere around $30, which is slightly less than £20. With almost half the total marketshare of desktop OSs, Windows 7 is the most popular choice across the planet. With the software nearing the end of it’s life…

    Mexican scientists have developed a new wearable that fits inside a shoe and can convert energy from walking (or running, I guess, if you’re into that kind of thing) and turn it into electricity. The device, which is around three millimetres thick, is similar to an insole and designed to store mechanical-vibrational energy created by movement. It measures pressure, force and acceleration, and its inbuilt circuit converts mechanical energy into microwatts. Designed by scientists at the Center for Research in Advanced Materials (CIMAV) in Chihuahua, it’s so far successfully powered a clock…
  • Bing apps are adopting the MSN brand name

    Bing the search engine is still alive and kicking but Microsoft is ditching the Bing moniker for a number of Windows Phone apps in favour of the MSN name. The change has started happening already as many Windows Phone user may attest to. It makes a little bit of sense to be honest. The Bing name is often met with sneers and mockery over the assumption that Google is a far superior product. MSN, on the other hand, is met with warm memories of teenage evenings spent talking to your friends online. The name change might help, or it might not. But it’s worth a shot right? Most of the former…

Like previous Sony phones, the Z3 is fully waterproof – which is why Carphone Warehouse produced this unboxing video filmed underwater.

    30 Sep 2014 | 3:55 am
    It looks like Microsoft is killing off the Bing brand name… and bringing back MSN right: MSN. In a brand strategy that seems to be increasingly randomly chosen, apparently the latest version of Windows Phone – 8.1 – sees the various Bing apps, such as Bing Finance being rebadged to remove the “Bing” name. The search app on Windows Phone – which used to be Bing Search – has now been named after Microsoft’s Siri-alike Cortana assistant. Such a move would mark a big shift: A few years ago Bing was launched in a blaze of publicity – the…

That’s not all, as it can also do 1080p at 120 frames per second (great for slow motions video recording,) and takes 12 megapixel images, up to 30 per second. On the inside you’ll find a processor that is twice a fast as what was in the GoPro Hero3+ Black Edition, as well as a redesigned microphone with double the dynamic range as the previous model.

    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…

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.

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…

  • A coffee shop in Korea installs 240 OLED lighting panels

    30 Sep 2014 | 10:29 am
    A new coffee shop opened in Korea called Marley Coffee (inspired by bob Marley's motto, "One Love"). They installed 15 OLED Butterfly Luminaries that use a total of 240 OLED panels - 53x55 mm panels produced by LG Chem. Those OLED butterflies are connected to a motion detector, and they flicker when movement nearby is detected. LG Chem says that because the OLED panels have no glare, the flickering does not cause discomfort like in other types of lighting.Read more about A coffee shop in Korea installs 240 OLED lighting panels

    DisplaySearch estimate that the plastic OLED display used in the Apple Watch costs more than $27 (this is the production cost, not the display price). They say it is difficult to know for sure as the cost is highly dependent on yield rates at LG Display's fab and they do not know it yet. They assume a 60% yield rate for the $27 estimation.The $27 estimate includes the plastic AMOLED module, the touch panel interface and the cover glass (sapphire or glass, depends on the Watch model).Read more about DisplaySearch: the plastic AMOLED based Apple Watch display costs over $27 to make

  • Faster STT-MRAM via different field-like orientation

    31 Aug 2014 | 4:13 am
    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…

    The human imagination is an incredibly buggy piece of software, because it’s very selective. If you’re pondering whether to apply for startup accelerators, you might sit back in your office bean bag chair and think about getting into Y Combinator or Techstars, wooing investors at demo day, and turning into an accelerator legend like Dropbox. Why yes, you decide, I should definitely apply to an accelerator. But your buggy imagination failed to mention a few things – like, for example, what happens between getting accepted and demo day. It forgot to imagine how it would feel to be on…

    Asus RT-N53 is a Wi-Fi router released in the autumn of 2011 that now sees a pretty big price drop, so, in theory, it is a good non-gigabit router with 5Gzh capabilities. The problem is that the 5Ghz Wi-Fi component is mounted on the USB bus and it seems to be failing very often. I've found reports of this problem dating back to 2012 on different discussion forums.

Admittedly, the design might be somewhat on the daring side, with the no small number of angular buttons and the way they stick out. It's also worth noting how there aren't any actual thumb buttons.

I can say that after going almost a full month without regular intakes of coffee has been a curious journey. To summarize my experience, I would say that I am not entirely comfortable with caffeine’s effect on my mind and body. And after reading Dr. Travis Bradberry’s post on LinkedIn, Caffeine: The Silent Killer of Success, I am even more skittish about returning to this delicious beverage.

The series of photos has documented the water-level change for 14 years, although NASA says that "at the start of the series in 2000, the lake was already a fraction of its 1960 extent." (The Aral Sea was originally a Soviet Union project to irrigate surrounding lands and turn deserts into crop land.) Part of the water disappearance was caused by a drought from 2005 to 2009,…

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

  • The Role of the Reflective IS Scholar-Practitioner

    1 Sep 2014 | 3:55 pm
    While there will always be a demand for competent Information Systems (IS) professionals, let’s face it: in this economy, competence isn’t good enough. It’s the merely competent who will get the pink slips when the bottom line demands payroll cuts. The real plum jobs, the kind that provide tenure for those supercompetents who practice them well, are those that have more far-reaching implications than a simple ability to maintain the servers and keep the databases in order. One way to achieve this pinnacle of success is to become a reflective IS scholar-practitioner. What…

    Everyone knows that robots are merely lifeless machines, no matter how amazing their abilities may be. However, you may be surprised at how often scientists replicate the features and capabilities of living creatures to increase robotic performance. In fact, there’s even a whole branch of robotics called “biomimetics” dedicated to that single premise. The term biomimetics means literally to “mimic life.” Insects are one form of life from which biomimetic scientists draw significant inspiration for new types of robotic technology.

People are paying attention to Ello because other people are paying attention to Ello. It is invitation only. Invite only, so only the In crowd get in - Google approach redux. If only one could rely on the no datascraping promises - it's like promising not to be Evil.

  • Analysis Suggests More Than Half Of Google & Microsoft's Patents Likely Invalid Thanks To The Supreme Court

    Mike Masnick
    30 Sep 2014 | 2:21 pm
    Over the last few months, since the Supreme Court's ruling in Alice v. CLS Bank, we've been noting the good news that the courts seem to be interpreting the ruling to invalidate a ton of software patents. Even some trolls have decided to just give up after seeing how the Alice ruling is being interpreted. A new analytical study of patents held by big tech companies, done by ktMINE, suggests that more than half of Google and Microsoft's patents are invalid under Alice. The biggest loser of all, however, may be Oracle, with an astounding 76% of all of its patents vulnerable to the ruling.

    All last week, we saw law enforcement types freaking out about the news that Apple and Google were making phone encryption a default. While a good step in the right direction, this was really kind of a minor thing, only protecting a small bit of information -- and yet law enforcement folks went nuts. So just imagine how crazy they'll go if Tor were embedded directly into Firefox as the default "private browsing mode," as was recently hinted at by Tor exec director Andrew Lewman. Even though private browsing mode still isn't even used that much, adding Tor automatically to it would be quite…

    One of the key points that many people have been making for decades is that copyright infringement likely wouldn't be such a big problem if they actually made works more available in convenient and reasonable ways. This was never an excuse for infringement, but an explanation and a suggestion on ways to minimize the amount of infringement happening. For the past few years, the big legacy copyright holders have been trying to spin things, claiming that they've made stuff "available," and since there's still "infringement" they obviously need new laws to better "protect" their works.

Extremists will have to get posts on Facebook and Twitter approved in advance by the police under sweeping rules planned by the Conservatives. They will also be barred from speaking at public events if they represent a threat to “the functioning of democracy”, under the new Extremist Disruption Orders. The…

    From Wikipedia: culture: the capacity to classify and encode human experiences symbolically, and to communicate symbolically encoded experiences socially This traditional definition of “culture” – not the only currently operative one, but one still prevalent in much discourse on practices in everyday life – is obviously problematic where the inclusion of nonhuman subjects (and human subjects incapable of sending messages or indicating their understanding of them) is presumed, or even merely contemplated. If one cannot signify, one might argue, one therefore cannot be…

    Looks like Voltage may obtain subscriber info in Canada from Teksavvy, but not without court oversight and privacy protections for people accused of infringement. Still, this was just a motion. The demand letters may roll out soon, but this litigation might prove to be unprofitable, given the tone and language of the judgement. This could play out in many different ways. I’ve long suspected that this case is merely a demo tape for a sweep of a much larger number of suspected infringing IP addresses assigned to the major ISPs.

  • Forrester Market Overview: Hosted Collaboration Services Providers

    25 Aug 2014 | 12:00 am
    Sixty-five percent of IT leaders Forrester recently surveyed said they are interested in or already using software-as-a-service (SaaS) for some portion of their collaboration technology portfolio. But many IT leaders — particularly those at very large organizations — are unsure whether standardized SaaS offerings from Google and Microsoft provide the flexibility they need. These concerns shouldn't prevent CIOs from moving collaboration tools off-premises. We find a burgeoning services sector that can deliver highly customized messaging, teaming, and real-time communication services for…
  • How to Protect Your Brand in Social Media

    25 Aug 2014 | 12:00 am
    The very characteristics that make social media incredibly appealing to consumers are the same ones that make it ripe for scammers seeking to exploit the value and power of established brands. It's not unusual for fans and consumers to be exposed to something new every day, whether a promotion, contest, fan page or enticing content. And, without much history to signal what is genuine and what is not, consumers find themselves at risk of being hoodwinked by brand impersonators, malicious account spoofers and counterfeiters.This white paper offers best practices for protecting your brand--and…

  • Pug Dog Mask Features Next-Gen Mouth-Moving Mask Technology – Seriously

    Chip Chick Staff
    30 Sep 2014 | 1:55 pm
    The Pug Dog Mask is here to take us into the future of weird masks. Gone are the days when you just threw something on and made everyone around you feel uncomfortable. Now, the mouth on the mask will move when you speak, and nightmares will be wrought. Did I mention Halloween is coming up? The mask is made of faux fur, so no actual pugs were harmed in the making of this mask. Those adorable pug eyes are mesh, so you can see the people you’re terrifying, and if that wasn’t wasn’t enough, there’s a chin brace in the mask that makes the mouth move when you speak. Again,…
  • Who Needs Oculus Rift When You Can Get Yourself Some Cardboard?

    Chip Chick Staff

    In the past week or so, you’ve probably heard about Google Cardboard, Google’s lovably wry answer to the Oculus Rift. The Rift, of course, is a gadget that has gotten millions of dollars in funding and a multi-billion dollar Facebook buyout, and will cost hundreds of dollars at launch. Google Cardboard is a piece of cardboard with a couple of special lenses and a place to put a smartphone. Snickers and high fives were no doubt had. The cool thing is that Google Cardboard is no joke—the rig actually provides a virtual reality experience when you use it with a smartphone and the…

    Chance Kinney

    The days of the Chromebook cornering the market on super-cheap laptops seem to be over. The new HP Stream Laptops run Windows 8, are very light, look fantastic, and, best of all, can be had for under $300. How are they that cheap? It’s not too different from how costs are kept down for Chromebooks—the Stream Laptops have less powerful Intel Celeron processors and a minimum of internal storage (32 GB of eMMC flash memory). Processor and internal storage are two very expensive components that tend to swing price dramatically, so it’s little wonder that the Stream Laptops are…

    Last year, Sol Republic came out with their first ever speaker, the Deck. We thought it was a fun, if underpowered take on the portable Bluetooth wireless speaker, with Heist Mode as a particularly unique addition. Heist Mode gives control of the music to five different devices at the same time, setting the stage for battles for control over the speaker and wild accusations of poor taste among friends. A commendable effort. One year later, Sol Republic is refreshing that same speaker with the Deck Ultra, and yes, Heist Mode is back. The speaker is still being developed alongside…

As surprising as it is to point to Microsoft as the plucky up-and-comer, that’s where we are right now. But, Windows Phone has long been an underrated OS, and now that Windows Phone 8.1 has arrived and droves of new high-end and midrange handsets are hitting the market, there has never been a better time to switch to Windows Phone.

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.

In addition, while there are certain specific cases in which state aid is legal, none of those seem to apply in this case. These cases cover things like aid to severely impoverished regions, natural disaster relief, important projects of common European interest, and similar things.

We're now 12 years past Steve Jobs' funeral for the OS at WWDC in 2002. While some people still find uses for DOS, I'm pretty sure that even the most ardent classic Mac OS users have given up the ghost by now - finding posts on the topic any later than 2011 or 2012 is rare.

    Vine has been around for a couple of years, but it seems to be gaining some traction, or perhaps that’s just because I’m seeing people use it differently than before. (Translation: Cats). As it’s owned by Twitter, Vine is not going anywhere, even if it’s not going anywhere, if you know what I mean. However, recently the app was beefed up a bit with some new edit features added that make it more compelling (and fun) to use. As I’ve indicated before, I’m a fan of animated GIFs and Vine is, well, sort of an animated GIF (they call them “looping…

    You have created a survey using Google Forms but people have quickly figured out a way to game your poll and tilt the results in their favor. They are submitting multiple entries, and because Google Forms will not record the I.P. address or the email of the form submitter, it is nearly impossible for you to separate the duplicate submissions from the genuine entries. How do you restrict Google Forms to only allow a single entry from a user? If you are a Google Apps user, you can always restrict the Google Form to accept entries only from users who are part of your domain and the response…

    One of the best features of Twitter that is relatively unknown to most users is their Lead Generation cards. Your tweet, see live example, will have a button and when another Twitter user clicks the button, their email address is sent to your application (which happens to be a Google spreadsheet in this case).

    You probably have a few dozen Android apps installed on your phone but the number of apps that you may be using on a regular basis is likely to be small. A recent Nielsen report says that the average number of apps used by phone owners is just around 26 per month.

You can sign-in with your Gmail account and compose emails using the WYSIWYG editor, or if you are comfortable with code, switch to the HTML mode and write messages in HTML and CSS directly. The HTML Mail app sends emails using your own Gmail account but unlike the previous versions, it does not require full access to your Google Account. It only needs permission to compose and send messages on your behalf and would not be able to read anything else in your mailbox. The app is open-source but you can always…

    30 Sep 2014 | 2:07 pm
    My first experience with Windows 8 inspired bafflement and frustration. But I walked away from my first few minutes with Windows 10 with a sense of jealousy. It looks like a significant improvement, and I want it on my PC right now. Microsoft is launching Windows 10 as the new face of both Windows and eventually Windows Phone. At one point during Microsoft’s Tuesday press event, Terry Myerson, the executive vice president in charge of Microsoft’s OS group, called the new OS “our most open, collaborative OS project ever.” Collaborative, indeed. Microsoft is looking for user feedback,…

    Data in its most raw form starts as an infinite, formless river of facts and figures, but with increased mobile adoption, workers in the enterprise are demanding beautiful data that’s consistent with the user experience they’ve come to expect from their non-enterprise apps. While Excel has been the go-to tool to transform tables into charts and make sense of raw data – it’s main limitation is the freshness of the data. By the time it reaches the business users, the info is stale. With more workers spending time on their mobile devices, it only makes sense for the enterprise to be able…

  • iPhone 6 Plus Review

    Terry White
    28 Sep 2014 | 9:11 pm
    Overview I’ve been doing iPhone reviews since the 1st one back in 2007 (if you want to see how far we’ve come, go back and have a glance at that one). So it’s become a tradition here on my blog and many of my friends and followers patiently wait for my take on the new mobile device. Normally I have these reviews done by the 1st Monday following the Friday release. However, my iPhone didn’t arrive until the following Wednesday (last week). I pre-ordered mine on day one, but apparently I didn’t make the 1st cut. Nonetheless, it did arrive a few days later and I…
  • iPhone 6 Plus: 1st Impressions

    Terry White
    25 Sep 2014 | 8:05 am
    My iPhone 6 Plus (64GB Gold Unlocked GSM) arrived late yesterday afternoon and everyone has been asking me “how is it?” So I thought I’d give a quick 1st impressions post now. I’ll have a full review on Monday after I have had a chance to really use the iPhone 6 Plus over the weekend.   Size Yep, it’s BIG! However, it’s not too big. To my surprise using it with one hand and reaching things with my thumb from top to bottom isn’t the problem. Apple includes a new “Reachability” feature that with a double tap on the touch ID sensor (as…
  • I went with this color laser printer

    Terry White
    22 Sep 2014 | 9:11 pm
    A few weeks ago I posted on my Facebook page asking for recommendations for a new printer. The requirement was that it had to be color and be ready to print when I’m ready to print. In other words I print very infrequently and my frustration with inkjet printers is that some models dry up when not used regularly and take lots of ink just to get the nozzles clean and printing again. My previous office printers had all been Xerox Phaser (dry ink) printers. While these printers have always served me well, it was going to be overkill to get another one as I just don’t print that often…
  • Don’t buy another USB wall charger for your phone!

    Terry White
    21 Sep 2014 | 9:11 pm
    Your smartphone probably came with a USB wall charger. Chances are you probably need or at least would find it convenient to have more than one. Perhaps one at your desk, one by the bed and maybe one in your travel bag. A quick check shows that the retail price of an Apple USB wall charger is $19. Of course you could get ANY 3rd party wall charger for half that price or less. However, even at $9 for a good quality generic charger you might want to consider a different option. If you’re buying a charger that’s going to have a permanent home under your desk, behind a nightstand,…

    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.

It makes you singular. It makes you money. These videos are based on my Growth Masters Annual Curriculum, a year-long learning program focused like a laser on growing your revenue!

Revenue growth is a learned behavior (I teach it!) that’s made up of several core, critical components. Unfortunately, these mindsets and behaviors are not taught in school. If they were, we’d all be better off. Here’s what I wish they would teach us, and our children, in school:That the simplest solution is almost always the best one. In math and in…

    Despite rocking the most beautiful Android smartphones for two years in a row, HTC is yet to report any profits of substantial order. In fact, of all the major OEMs out there, HTC seems to always be fighting the battle of survival. Be it small marketing budgets or just bad pricing, there are several reasons as to why HTC devices haven’t done well. To fight the category fight though, HTC has since last year released several models with varied sizes of their flagship. We had the smaller HTC M7 Mini and HTC M7 Max to go with the M7.

    Samsung has taken great pleasure in taking the micky out of Apple at every possible occasion. Be it, when Apple finally decided to go with a larger sized iPhone or with countless advertisements, Apple has been on Samsung’s radar since maybe the chicken came of that egg. They were at it again, when the infamous bendgate issue happened where some of the iPhone 6 Plus were reported to be bending at one of the weak stress points. However, looks like Samsung must be on the guard themselves or risk laughing too soon without realising that all is not rosy in their own backyard. According to…

But, instead of Apple’s explanation, new videos surface regularly which proves that there are more number of devices bending than company admitted. In the new addition of bending controversy, two kids made a daring (or stupid) video for YouTube viewers in which they showed how they bent the iPhone 6 Plus with bare hands.

  • 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.

    Getting an environment up and running with Ruby on Rails can be pretty easy on a Mac or Linux machine.  It can be a little less easy on Windows.   But, either way, using Vagrants for development environment really cleans up your development universe in a few ways: It lets you have a dedicated Vagrant, and therefore a dedicated development environment, for every project It gives you the ability to let every developer on your team have precisely the same development environment Regardless of how easy it is to setup Rails, getting up and running with a Vagrant is as easy as typing…
  • Organizing Your Schedule with the Sunrise Calendar App

    15 Sep 2014 | 9:01 am
    Recently, I have come across a nifty calendar app called Sunrise Calendar. My first impression was that it works very well with Google Calendars. One of the main features that I look for in an app when it connects to Google Calendars is whether or not you can join a hangout from an event within the app. With Sunrise Calendar, this is accomplished very easily by clicking on the “Join video call” under the Hangout heading at the bottom of the event view. This works perfectly by opening up the hangout video call just as it would if you were viewing the event through the Google…

As an added bonus, there's also new functionality for background tracking for fitness and sleep. This should make the devices even more enticing.

    Gadjo Cardenas Sevilla
    30 Sep 2014 | 11:02 am
    It's clear that Apple Watch is as much a wearable gadget as it is a fashion object and while Apple's treasured watch isn't slated for release until early 2015, Jony Ive and his bestie Marc Newson were on hand to chaperone their newest creation in and around the high-glitz events of the fashion capital. The more expensive variants of the Apple Watch are expected to cost a premium price and will likely be made available in high-end botiques and ateliers catering to fashion-forward buyers, so it makes good sense for Apple to send it's most articulate experts on Apple Watch to represent it to a…

  • How Linking to Knowledge Could Boost News Media

    Frédéric Filloux
    14 Sep 2014 | 11:32 am
    A key way to differentiate value-added news from commodity contents is to rework the notion of linking. Thanks to semantics and APIs, we could move from dumb links to knowledge linking.  Most media organizations are still stuck in version 1.0 of linking. When they produce content, they assign tags and links to mostly internal other contents. This is done out of fear that readers would escape for good if doors were opened too wide. Assigning tags is not exact science: I recently spotted a story about the new pregnancy in the British Royal family; it was tagged “Demography”, as if…

    The Apple Watch isn’t just another iDevice, a “wearables” accessory to the Apple ecosystem. It’s a bold attempt to create a new kind of wrist-worn personal computer that looks like a smartwatch. In previous Monday Notes dealing with the putative iWatch and other “wearables”, I thought the new product would be a nice add-on to the iDevices ecosystem — a bit player that would make the iPhone more desirable —  but that it wouldn’t move the needle, meaning $10B or more in revenue. I reasoned that a watch battery would be too small to feed a computer powerful enough to offer a…

    Not sleeping well lately? Poor air quality in your home can negatively impact your sleep, physical energy, and cause cold symptoms like teary eyes or sniffles; not to mention the dreadful words like lung disease or cancer. Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) Seemingly, the air quality within our homes can be up to eight times worse than outdoors, and on specific occasions — say while repainting a wall — way more than that too. Our need for a more secure and confined environment has somehow contributed to this disparity in air quality between the interior and exterior. Indoor air quality…

  • HHS Removes Medicare’s Blanket Exclusions on Transgender Surgery

    Meghann Kiernan
    24 Sep 2014 | 1:55 am
    On May 30, 2014, the Departmental Appeals Board (DAB) of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) ruled that the HHS policy of categorically excluding coverage for sex-reassignment surgery by Medicare was unjustified. Based on this ruling, HSS has removed Medicare’s blanket exclusions on transgender surgery. According to the DAB, denying coverage for sex-reassignment surgery in spite of a person’s individual medical conditions and needs is unreasonable and goes against contemporary science and medical standards of care. DAB’s groundbreaking decision strikes…

    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.

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…
  • Simplify with Software Defined Storage

    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…

    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…

    Welcome to “The StorHouse”! This house will accommodate all areas of storage, and there is plenty to cover. As a product manager in storage for 20 years, I had the opportunity to see some pretty interesting changes in the market. Events such as the move to distributed computing, the advent of technologies like virtual disk and snapshot copies and moving from large single large expensive disk (SLEDS) with huge 11” platters to a single solid state PCIe card with 6TB of capacity. Disk storage costs have fallen from over $1,000 per GB to under $.10 per GB with 4TB SATA drives.

      As avid gamers, we all know that we have a special relationship with our controller. Whether you play Xbox 360, PS3, PS4 or Xbox One, the controller you hold while gaming is extremely important. If your joysticks aren’t up to par or your buttons are sticking and just aren’t right, you feel it the entire time you game and that can have a negative affect on scores. By now you’ve probably heard of these things they call “Modded Controllers” or “Tournament Controllers” and maybe you’ve even started to look into one. The problem is that while these are both custom gaming…

  • Keep Your Customers Coming Back With Perfect Software Pricing

    Thomas Oppong
    30 Sep 2014 | 3:49 am
    When entrepreneurs are selling a new product, they need to know how to price that product. There are plenty of variables that go into a product’s pricing — from the cost of manufacturing to the product’s usefulness to even the state of the market at the time — and to be successful, the product’s vendor needs to be able to predict just what his or her customers will be willing to spend on that product. If the seller goes too low, he or she risks significant financial losses; if he or she gambles on a price that’s too high, the product probably won’t sell as efficiently, if at…

    The internet connects us to billions of products online. Online merchandise range from being silly to creative design to daily items. Fair trade is becoming more common, but many of the sites that offer those goods follow a for-profit business model and only a handful follow the non-profit road. Shopping for a Change (SFAC) is one of the few non-profit, fair trade businesses to change and help improve the lives of many in underdeveloped communities. Stacey Horowitz, Founder of SFAC, started the non-profit business from a trip to Peru in 2009. According to SFAC’s, “She witnessed the ugly…

    24 Sep 2014 | 11:26 am
    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,…
  • Researching by Design: How does Research Fit into Design-Thinking Innovation?

    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 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…
  • You could have been an Innovation Hero!

    10 Sep 2014 | 9:26 am
    You almost got to market with that new product you wanted to launch.  It was really clever.  The design wasn’t radical but it was unique enough to gain market share, or so you thought.  After being in the industry for years you had seen more than your fair share of new concepts. These came from competitors or even competing groups and you watched them come and go. Some were ingenious and you admired them for their design. Some were real stinkers. You felt confident that your new idea was a hit and would create the buzz needed to launch. You were really excited about this one. After the…

    If you have been in the market research industry for more than 10 years, then congratulations, you are a survivor.

    Globe is bringing back free Facebook service to their subscribers starting next week. After MVP announced that Smart is giving away free internet (albeit 30Mb limit) to its prepaid subscribers last week, Globe issued a statement in response.

Anyway, besides the image posted on Globe’s FB page (with the message “FREE Facebook with no strings attached is…

Samsung posted this on Twitter, showing the Galaxy Note Edge’s 5.6 inch display that curves at one side of the edge.   And followed it up with an ad showing a bent iPhone 6 Plus bowing down to the Galaxy Note 3 phablet.

  • How to change IE Spelling language in Windows 8

    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…

  • How to Fix no Audio Issues with FaceTime Video on iPhone 6

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

    21 Sep 2014 | 8:56 am
    This year, Apple is selling a contract free iPhone 6 from day 1 of its launch in the US. This contract free iPhone comes bundled with a T mobile sim card which is creating a lot of confusion about whether the phone will be locked to the T mobile network. Apple support executives are further adding to the confusion by saying that only T mobile customer care can confirm this. And T mobile reps say that one has to get unlock codes from them to unlock the any phone on their network, however, they are not 100% sure about the iPhone 6. I bought a contract free T mobile iPhone 6 on launch day and…

  • The New Pinterest Analytics Is More Robust than Twitter’s

    Denae Olberding
    17 Sep 2014 | 1:23 pm
    Pinterest is sometimes viewed as the latecomer on the social media scene. By all rights the platform’s visual focus should have made it an overnight success story, but it often takes a back seat to Facebook, Twitter, and even smaller platforms like Tumblr. But Pinterest has proven itself a top performer for businesses that take the time to learn to use it well. Now Pinterest is making its network even more valuable to businesses, with the unveiling last week of an expanded and upgraded analytics feature. Like the similar unveil from Twitter two weeks ago, the move is clearly meant to…

  • 5-Star Rating Yanked by Yelp? Court Says It’s OK

    Dave Paul
    15 Sep 2014 | 12:12 pm
    How much would you pay for a 5-star rating on Yelp? How about to make those bad reviews go away? So far, Yelp hasn’t officially offered anything of the sort—but a court decision earlier this month says they can if they want to. Yelp was taken to court in California on allegations that it was “extorting” business owners by pressuring them to pay for good ratings. Yelp denies the allegation, but apparently it needn’t worry: the Ninth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals says that fixing ratings is fair play. That surprises many business owners. Yelp has become perhaps the biggest destination…
  • Google’s HTTPS Incentive Is Little Incentive At All

    Dave Paul
    5 Sep 2014 | 8:01 am
    Want to get more traffic for your website? How about investing in costly web encryption that you don’t actually need? That’s the proposition that Google put forward last month, when it announced an incentive for site owners to switch to HTTPS (hypertext transfer protocol secure). For the record, HTTPS is the more-secure form of the familiar HTTP, the protocol that transfers data over the web. Right now the majority of websites don’t use HTTPS because they don’t need it, but Google says it’s now using HTTPS as a signal in search ranking algorithms. In other words, make the switch and…
  • Google Authorship Comes to a Crashing Halt

    Dave Paul
    29 Aug 2014 | 12:54 pm
    Yesterday Google announced the end of its great Google Authorship experiment as it relates to search results. Author snippets won’t be shown on SERPs and authorship markup will not weigh in search ranking, effective immediately. Authorship has had a mixed history. While Google was interested in the idea as far back as 2007, it was only with the launch of Google+ that it gained any traction. Suddenly, authors could link all their work back to a single Plus profile and get credit across the web. But the victory was short-lived: by 2013 Google reduced how many author snippets it showed per…

The guy was looking for a new job because he was totally burned…

    New Oracle co-CEO Safra Catz is keeping up the long tradition of trash-talking rival SAP, something co-founder Larry Ellison has been doing for decades. In an interview with Bloomberg's Cory Johnson, she slammed SAP's $8.3 billion purchase of a company called Concur, which offers cloud travel and expense (T&E) management software. SAP announced the deal the same day as Oracle announced her promotion to co-CEO, and its first-quarter results, which were generally good, but didn't meet Wall Street's expectations.  SAP paid $129/share, a 20% premium over Concur's previous closing price…

    Late last week, Marissa Mayer got the kind of letter a public company CEO never wants to get. It was an open letter from a major shareholder, telling her what to do…or else. The letter was from a type of shareholder known as an "activist investor." Activist investors buy lots of stock in public companies they believe are being run incorrectly. Usually, there is one specific thing the activist investor would like their public company targets to do, e.g. spin-out a division, merge with a rival, or commit to cost cuts. After they buy their stake, activists will often launch media-friendly…

    The biggest story in tech today is the news that eBay is finally spinning out PayPal. Activist investor Carl Icahn started agitating for eBay to spin out PayPal earlier this year. But, prior to Icahn people in the tech world have long grumbled that PayPal was wasted inside eBay.  So, why is PayPal going solo now? There's a bunch of reasons — pressure from Icahn, pressure to hire people, competition with Apple, and other startups in the payment space. Being a standalone company makes recruiting easier. It also focuses PayPal on payments. This chart gives another reason — PayPal…

    Microsoft gave the world a small glimpse at its next operating system, Windows 10, on Tuesday. In a way, Windows 10 is a throwback.

Windows 10 isn't finished yet, but here's a quick look at what Microsoft showed us so far.Here's the desktop. At first glance, it looks a lot like Windows 7 and the "desktop" mode in Windows 8.

So on that note, I decided to use my IT skills for the good of the country. To be honest, my IT skills have never been up to par, my day job is more managing/planning/documenting than actual execution of ‘real’ IT work.

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

    Keith Rozario
    14 Sep 2014 | 8:31 am
    Recently KiniBiz did a piece on Malaysian broadband speeds, and once again the hoopla about how Malaysian broadband speeds are slow arose. Kinibiz quoted an article from Asean DNA which stated that the average broadband speed in Malaysia was just 5.5 Mbps, while Thailand, Vietnam and Singapore had speeds that were double that (or more!) The report however was inaccurate, and I think there’s a need to address the hoopla, because this happens often. There was a report couple months back that said Cambodia had faster speeds than Malaysia, and I wrote a post addressing that. This time I…
  • A Techie’s view on the Law

    Keith Rozario
    8 Sep 2014 | 7:30 am
    Are some laws worth following–in other words, are some Laws so idiotic that they should be ignored completely? That sounds anathema, because we have a romanticized definition of the law, we define the Law as a broad general agreement a society undertakes, and the law keeps society from tearing itself apart. In other words, the law is so sacred because without it–we descend into anarchy, so ignoring the law is akin to promoting anarchy. But I’m not speaking of “The Law”, I’m speaking of “A law”, specifically an Act of Parliament. “The…

Here’s one more reason, recently they alerted me to a suspicious number of login attempts to my wordpress site, which usually means someone was trying to hack it. If you remember the post I did about the RHB bank scam, it’s quite common for hackers to inject pages onto a wordpress site to help them carry out banking scams. This was probably something similar. Fortunately, the guys over at nearlyfreespeech were not just kind enough to log the attempts and alert me, but even…

So why did the Government choose to ban a service, that was improving public transport in KL? For the small matter that it violated a couple of laws–no big deal really. Laws are made to be broken aren’t they? There’s no need to go into the details of whether Uber is legal or illegal, that’s an irrelevant point.

One thing that is noticeable is that most of them have a consistency which means the design of the phone will likely match with the other leaked photos later on. The case for OPPO N3 is however different. Till now we have 4 different leaked photos or should I say, renders of the upcoming OPPO  N3. One thing is for sure that the device will be having a camera that swivels, the same that we saw in OPPO N1. Till now,…

    Nofollow tags are frequently misunderstood. In this article we look at nofollow tags, their rationale, and how to nofollow (or “dofollow”) links on WordPress. Google’s success as a search engine was largely based on its founders’ development of an algorithm that used incoming links as a signal of a page’s quality. The idea is that […]

    The Sorcerer
    29 Sep 2014 | 8:58 pm
    It looks like AMD Radeon seems to be having a tough time, unless R9 390X pays off.

According to reports, Nvidia is all set to release “GTX 980 Ti” or “Titan X” which is assumed to use GM200 GPU core. According to the leaks, it is also claimed that Nvidia would be coughing out GeForce GTX 990 graphic cards which would be based on 2x GM204 cores. This card, if true, will be released for Christmas.

The season pass grants you extra story missions,…
  • Is Gigabyte India MB division trying to discourage users from buying online?

    The Sorcerer
    28 Sep 2014 | 11:06 pm
    We had seen cases where electronic and notebook manufacturers have made attempts to discourage users from buying online. Few companies used sentences from ‘They might be genuine’ to even more serious ‘We may not be able to honour warranty’ in a public domain, including via social network or press release.  So far, they were limited to cameras and notebooks, but it seems that Gigabyte motherboard sales in India may follow the same spin. On September 21st, Gigabyte India recommended that the user should buy from a retail store (or retail store’s website) rather…

    If we continue to tolerate this form of “entertainment”, before we know it, our society would be watching live porn right before their eyes and be so completely blinded and numbed by the media to see it as harmless amusement. Heck, it’s happening now—a lot of people aren’t even able to tell what can harm us as a society with the kind of sex-obsessed culture we are creating. We’re becoming more and more reckless, not considering the values we impart to the youth who will be left to run this world when the future comes. Is this what marketing has come to?

Our need for a more secure and confined environment has somehow contributed to this disparity in air quality between the interior and exterior. Indoor air quality…

    By default, the My Documents folder is located in Windows XP and Windows Vista is located on the same drive or partition as the operating system. This is fine for anyone who has only a single drive or a single partition on their computers, such as the C drive, but if you have more than one physical or logical drive on your computer, it’s best to move your My Documents folder off the system drive.

Basically, the software is split into three categories: software to create an ISO image file from a folder on the hard disk or from a CD/DVD, software to burn an image file to a CD/DVD and software to mount an image file as a drive in Windows. How to Create an ISO Image File There are two free…

SEO stands for search engine optimisation and simply uses an array of methods to push the website further up the results page on search engines. This allows web surfers searching for a relevant key term to find that website more easily. The higher up it appears in search engine rankings, the more likely it…

    John Morris
    10 Sep 2014 | 9:07 am
    In this episode of the John Morris Show, I teach you how to use Elance and ODesk to build a successful freelance web design business. This 6-part strategy is what I used to prove all my friends and family wrong when they said I’d never make it as full-time web designer. And, to be blunt… if your freelance business is based 100% on sites like Elance and ODesk.. you’re being foolish. You could be working less and making more by implementing the 6 simple steps in this video. Over time, these steps will start to seem a bit “magical” because you’ll have new…
  • How to Avoid Clients From Hell BEFORE They Ever Hire You

    John Morris
    21 Aug 2014 | 4:26 pm
    Some clients just suck. There’s really no nice way to put it. Learning how to expose and avoid them BEFORE you let them hire you will keep you from tearing your hair out (and stave off the gray hair for just a few more years). Of course, it’s fun to joke about it… but dealing with hellish clients is actually serious as… well hell! That’s because getting good at avoiding clients who just don’t fit well with your personality and how you operate will help you avoid getting seriously burnt out and overwhelmed. And, it’ll keep you loving your job which…

You get to see first-hand that people WILL pay you money to code for them and that you CAN deliver. On the flip side, NOT getting your first client leaves…

    I was recently asked: “How do I fill out my profile on sites like Elance and oDesk? How do I fill them out in a way that’s honest but more impressive than leaving them blank?” Here’s the simplest way I can put this… Your unique situation can and SHOULD be positioned to highlight your advantages. For example, when I started looking to get hired for freelance IT jobs I was completely self-taught and I believed that was a disadvantage. I believed coders who had gone to school were in a better position than me and would have an easier time convincing clients to hire…

    Most freelancers and web designers immediately roll their eyes when I say the word, “branding”.

In fact, you’re here reading this right now because of the “branding” I do.

  • Why Some Games Need 64-Bit Support

    Miguel Leiva-Gomez
    29 Sep 2014 | 4:25 pm
    In the world of gaming, there has been a recent move by major publishers to release their games with 64-bit support. World of Warcraft, despite running for years on 32-bit, was patched for 64-bit support. Many people have decided that this is the way that gaming was going to move forward. But why exactly is 64-bit support so important for certain games? With the release of EA’s The Sims 4 with 32-bit-only support, there was some debate as to whether the game should have expanded to 64-bit, at least for machines that were compatible. Why is this? What does 64-bit support do?To understand…

Katrina Cole, CC BY-NCA steady infiltration of scientists onto Twitter has accompanied the growing recognition that a social media presence is just as important as taking the podium at a conference. Social media is leading to new ways for scientists to collaborate and communicate. Indeed, mentions on Twitter can amplify a researcher’s scientific impact.

It is a tricky balancing act. Cut too many corners and release a product too soon, and you risk a withering backlash.

So what name would the tech giant choose? Not Windows 9, the obvious and expected pick, nor Windows One, the rumored alternative. No, to the surprise of everyone, Microsoft has revealed that the next version of its operating system will be called… drum roll… Windows 10! Wait,…

    Thousands of protesters have flooded into the heart of central Hong Kong over recent days to demonstrate against the Beijing government's plans to phase out the semi-autonomous province's democratic elections by 2017. The campaign seeks to blockade Hong Kong's financial center, and represents the first major challenge to the rule of the new Chinese President, Xi Jinping. For anyone confused by the protests, here's a bit of background: when the UK handed the territory of Hong Kong back to China in 1997, the Chinese government agreed to a policy of "one country, two systems" that allowed the…

You couldn’t order piecemeal or wait for some orders to roll in first, you had to buy a bunch and hope for the best. Still, writers would pay thousands of dollars for this option if they were not able to find a publishing company.

    Read an article the other day in Wired, A system to cut traffic that just might work, about two MIT students doing research to help Singapore better manage traffic congestion. They have come up with a sort of token ring network for traffic. In their approach every car when it enters a “congestion zone” is suppplied an electronic token and when that car leaves the zone it retires it’s token (sound familiar). When the zone is too congested, no new tokens are handed out and cars are re-routed around the zone using GPS provided directions. It seems a bit hokey but using tokens…

    I like to think that if software development had Ten Commandments, the first would be: Thou shalt not build something that doesn’t matter. There is no more profound waste of talent and effort than to have engineers build software that doesn’t get used by customers, or add-value elsewhere in a product. Unfortunately it happens all the time in both small and large companies. The result is a lost opportunity, a reduction in market momentum, and usually disappointment from everyone involved. My Early Mistakes When I started CloudHealth, I drove a Lean process to build out my early Minimum…

    This quote from Ben Horowitz's The Hard Thing About Hard Things really struck me: Startup CEOs should not play the odds. When you are building a company, you must believe there is an answer, and you cannot pay attention to your odds of finding it. You just have to find it. It matters not whether your chances are 9 in 10 or 1 in a 1000. Your task is the same. Almost every substantial breakthrough in my career has been preceeded by a period of time in which I had no idea how I was going to do what needed to be done.

    There are many ingredients that go into building a company: hard work, emotional fortitude, agility, willingness to take risks, fanatical commitment to driving customer value, ability to execute in the face of ambiguity, and more. But there is one ingredient that often gets overlooked: an ability to will something to happen. If entrepreneurship is the creation of something from nothing, that process starts with a belief the something can be made to happen. What is often started by the willpower of a single individual, can only expand by surrounding yourself with committed and like-minded…

I also have blogging on the mind in general after reading Jason Kincaid’s new book today. Here’s my short answer – A great tech blogger needs to be exceptionally good at (1) breaking big stories, (2) writing powerful thought pieces, and (3) doing live interviews. In my mind, there are just three or four great tech bloggers in the world. The average tech blogger, which is just a commodity, probably isn’t good at any of these…

    Alexia Tsotsis, the editor of TechCrunch, interviewed Peter Thiel yesterday at TechCrunch Disrupt. Pando editor Paul Carr has this to say: Alexia is the editor of TechCrunch. And that means she’s a competitor to the sites that regularly call out sexism, subtle or overt, that pops up in our industry. So she goes without defense. Not only does she go without defense from her peers in the industry, it’s actually one of her peers calling her stupid. Which is fine, she’s very tough. But if you see her today, let her know how much you respect her. She won’t show it, but…

Various reports on the problem have sprung up in forums and on social media over the last few days, with the iPhone 6 Plus apparently particularly susceptible to the issue because of its larger size, which causes a greater bulge in the pocket, and therefore more strain on the device from the tighter fabric. Apple has made a lot of fuss about the slim design of its phones, making special efforts for slim…
