    (What you’re about to read was dictated by me into a machine.) Through the years, I’ve purchased numerous iterations of dictation software from the company now called Nuance. For some reason, dictating has never worked for me. Perhaps it’s because I was born after the Don Draper era. When I graduated from college, I could type 80 words a minute, which is probably faster than I can think. I can probably type faster than that now, but as anyone who has read this blog knows, the faster I type the more goofy things I say. And one of my rules of blogging is to not work over the…
  • Modern Day Piggy Banks

    When I was a kid, my parents used to give me a dollar each day when I went to school in order to buy a snack. That snack cost $0.75, leaving me a quarter left over. I kept those coins in my locker. At the end of the school year, I’d gather those quarters, head to the bank, and get coin wrappers in order to deposit them.

    If F1 racers can be hybrids, then why not superyachts? That seems to be the thinking of Feadship De Voogt Naval Architects as it launched "the world’s first hybrid superyacht," Savannah, last Saturday. The centerpiece of a James Bond-themed launch ceremony for the new owner and the people involved in the yacht's construction over the last three years, the Savannah not only boasts a novel power plant, but is also the first superyacht to be entirely metallic painted save for the mast domes...

    Ben Coxworth
    30 Jan 2015 | 3:24 pm
    In order to study how young fish such as salmon are affected by swimming through hydroelectric dams, scientists have traditionally equipped them with surgically-implanted acoustic tracking tags. Unfortunately, the implantation procedure can harm the fish, plus the weight of the device can affect their behavior. Now, however, a team at the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL) in Washington state has developed a much lighter acoustic tag, that can be injected into fish using a needle. ..

    Apple’s recent earnings report was spectacular. The company sold 74.5 million iPhones in the last quarter and had $18 billion in profits, setting a record in both categories. Most of the revenue and profit came from the iPhone which has clearly become Apple’s cash cow. But it begs an important question or two. The first has to do with the ability to sustain growth with the iPhone and to continue to have strong profits from this product. The second has to do with the three legged stool metaphor in which Apple has three legs with the iPhone, iPad and Macs yet only one continues to…

  • Concentrating Solar Power Systems

    15 Jan 2015 | 8:43 pm
    If you have ever seen a field with several mirrors pointing toward the sun you may be looking at a solar power system. These systems work to concentrate the sunlight to one area and use the heat to heat up the liquid that flows along the pipes. This system is called Parabolic-trough system. This type of system heats oil that is flowing through the pipe. The oil is hot and that is why it is used to boil water to power a steam generator which in turns powers electricity. The reason that this system works so well is because the U-shaped mirrors attracts and collects the suns heat which is then…

Since man started building homes, sunlight played a major influence in the design. In fact, even in the more advanced urban planning method of the Ancient Chinese and Greeks, the orientation of the buildings is as much as possible directed towards where it could capture the most sunlight.

  • Will Uber Convertibles Run Out Of Gas?

    Robbie Goffin
    30 Jan 2015 | 3:00 pm
     Uber just completed a $1.6 billion, six-year convertible debt raise via Goldman’s private wealth group. “But Robbie,” you say, “how do you even put a value on a convertible bond if there isn’t any stock to convert the bond into?” A great question, and one that has a number of significant implications. Since we’re all friends here, let’s go ahead… Read More
  • Review Of Uber’s Privacy Policy Shows Positive Signs, But Still Room For Improvement

     Uber today released the results of a review of its privacy policies, which it had commissioned from independent law firm Hogan Lovells. The firm found that Uber had appropriate policies and disclosures in place and that it had invested significantly to enforce those policies. However, it made some recommendations into how the company could improve the way it handles user data. Read More

  • An Interview with Hunter Walk, Partner at Homebrew and Previous Consumer Product Management Lead at YouTube

    7 Jan 2015 | 10:24 pm
    By: Hillel Fuld (@hilzfuld) I gotta be honest with you. I follow way too many people on Twitter. 8,754, to be precise. It may be worth writing a post about the different reasons I follow different people. Some I follow out of curiosity, some out of courtesy, and others, I have absolutely no idea how, when, or why I started following. Then there is the occasional gem. There are the select few people that totally make my Twitter experience. People like Elon Musk,  Marc Andreessen, some tech journalists, and at the top of the list, alongside these greats, is Hunter Walk. Besides his…
  • An Interview with Saul Singer, Co-Author of the Book ‘Startup Nation’ and One of Israel’s Greatest Thinkers

    25 Dec 2014 | 5:58 am
    Over the years, I have done quite a few killer interviews and I am very proud of the long list. Having said that, the opportunity to have interviewed Saul Singer is definitely at the top of my list. If you are not familiar (how are you not familiar?), Saul wrote the book “Startup Nation” along with his brother in law, Dan Senor. Saul has been a journalist for many years, and has been a thought-leader to the Israeli tech scene through his global tours, speaking engagements, and contributions to leading and influential publications across the web and print. You can and should…
  • An Interview with Tomer Sharon, Senior User Experience Researcher at Google about UX, Mobile, and Life at Google

    4 Dec 2014 | 12:06 am
    A few weeks ago, I was fortunate enough to visit an old friend at Google, NY. Now why is that interesting? Because I call Tomer “An old friend” despite the fact that I had never met him. “Wow, you have a strange definition of friend” is probably what you’re thinking. Could very well be, but if you think about the nature of friendship, you will quickly realize that a friend is someone you learn from, someone you share experiences with, and someone you respect and, well, like. Such is Tomer. I have been following Tomer for years on the social web and consistently…
  • An Interview with Martin Bryant, Editor in Chief of The Next Web about Journalism, Print, and Wearables

    12 Oct 2014 | 11:20 pm
    By: Hillel Fuld (@Hilzfuld) There are many tech blogs out there. Way too many. For us tech addicts, that means too much daily reading. But then there are the ones that stand out. The tech blogs that consistently put out top-notch work and do it without the need for stupid blogger politics, or an ego the size of south america. Of course that last part, the lack an ego that makes it difficult to work with them, really limits the bunch to a very few selected blogs. The Next Web is at the top of that list.

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,…

    For all its cutting edge innovation and talk of egalitarianism, Silicon Valley remains an industry rife with issues. Just ask Cathryn Posey, a senior manager at software management maker Electric Cloud. On Thursday, Posey held the first annual Tech Superwomen Summit in San Francisco, California, a conference highlighting issues faced by women in STEM (science, mathematics, engineering and math) She cites a Harvard Business Review study last May reporting that 56% of all women in STEM leave their jobs mid-career for something entirely different.

    Here on Techdirt we've been reporting on a depressing stream of really bad legislative proposals coming out of Australia concerning copyright and surveillance. Much of this seems born of ignorance: some senior ministers clearly do not understand how the Internet works. Sadly, that includes Tony Abbott, Australia's Prime Minister, as this report in The Age indicates: "I'll leave social media to its own devices. Social media is kind of like electronic graffiti and I think that in the media, you make a big mistake to pay too much attention to social media," Mr Abbott said on Australia Day. "You…

    30 Jan 2015 | 5:00 pm
    Mammals drink milk when they're young. Maybe there are some exceptions to that, but the examples of milk-drinking mammals are pretty easy to find. People are mammals, and so the cow milk industry is sizable: the US alone produced over 200,000,000,000 pounds of cow milk in 2013. In other parts of the world, goat milk is more popular (and there are a lot of other kinds of milk that people drink, too). Okay, so why doesn't anyone drink pig milk? The Illinois Pork Producers' Association has an answer. Basically, it's harder to milk a pig, and cows are so much better at it now that it would be…
  • Google Finally Stops Playing Mute On Net Neutrality, Says New Rules Won't Hurt Google Fiber In The Slightest

    Karl Bode
    30 Jan 2015 | 3:40 pm
    While Google was a major player in the net neutrality fight early on, the company performed a stark about-face on the issue sometime around 2010. Google was responsible for co-writing the FCC's original, wimpy net neutrality rules alongside AT&T and Verizon, which were jam-packed with loopholes and ensured that wireless networks and devices weren't covered at all. When called out on this, Google pretty feebly insisted they weren't being inconsistent, though it was clear to most folks that the company had shifted lobbying strategies in the hopes of fostering a better relationship across…
  • To Enforce Emissions Standards, State Governments Are Looking To Ride Shotgun In Constituents' Vehicles

    Californians may find their cars being converted to government informants at some point in the future, thanks to the state's push to curb emissions. As always, a trip to the land of Unintended Consequences begins at the Port of Good Intentions. Cleaner air and vehicles will come at a cost, and that cost may include an extensive collection of driving data. (via Cato) The On Board Diagnostics computer systems on all of our late-model cars now collect a wide range of information mostly related to a car’s emissions.

  • Santa To The Sea Half Marathon and 2014 Recap

    3 Jan 2015 | 5:38 pm
    Over the past year I’ve run over 800 miles and raced three half marathons, three challenging trail races over 11 miles long and in several 5ks. I also dedicated a lot of training time to increasing my climbing and logged over 24,000 feet in elevation gain. I trained on several mountain ranges in Southern California and feel like I can knock out a half marathon run at any time, so I did. It’s been a couple of weeks since running the Santa To The Sea Half Marathon in Oxnard on Dec. 18. I was excited to tackle the course and try to set a PR for the half. The flat as a pancake course…

    After tackling the XTERRA Point Mugu 18K Trail Race in October, I decided to do the Santa to the Sea Half Marathon in December next. But that left me with two months without races and I got impatient. I was looking through my timeline on the Strava site when I saw that tri-athlete Anthony Grey was in his last weeks of training for the Surfer’s Point Full Marathon. After that I signed up for the half marathon or the race to be held on Nov. 16, 2014. One of the features of the race is that when you cross the finish line you get a nice beer and some real tacos. Who can say no to tacos?

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

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

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

Previously the company had promised an early 2015 release, but apart from that they were a bit vague on a specific date, at least until now. That being said we’re sure many of you guys are curious about the device.While the built-in features are plenty to be excited over, just like smartphones, having more apps would no doubt enhance the user experience which is why it doesn’t not come as a surprise that Apple is currently asking developers to have…
  • Vine Launches Kid-Friendly Version Of Its App

    30 Jan 2015 | 4:36 pm
    Vine plays home to all kinds of short video clips. Some are hilarious, some are weird, and some might not necessarily be safe for work OR kids. While we doubt Vine will be launching a safe for work version of the app anytime soon, the developers have since launched a special version of the app designed just for kids in mind.The kids version of the app was conceived during Vine’s Hack Week, which is basically time given to Vine employees to work on their own personal projects outside of work, which is also where the idea came together. The app will function pretty much the same way as…
  • Android 5.0 Delayed For Carrier Versions Of HTC One M8, HTC One M7

    30 Jan 2015 | 3:55 pm
    So HTC has been rolling out Android 5.0 Lollipop for the HTC One M8, but if you were one of the ones who bought their HTC One M8 or One M7 from a carrier, it seems that you guys will have to wait just a little bit longer. HTC had previously promised to roll out the update within 90 days of Google releasing Android 5.0.This would mean that that it should be arriving by the 1st of February. However according to HTC US product manager Mo Versi, the update for the carrier versions of the One M8 and One M7 have been pushed back by a bit. According to HTC, it seems that there are some issues with…
  • Moto G (2014) 4G LTE Model Launched In Brazil

    30 Jan 2015 | 3:53 pm
    Back in 2014, Motorola introduced the 4G LTE version of the 2013-launched Moto G. Motorola then released the 2014 Moto G but unfortunately that phone did not come with 4G LTE connectivity, which we thought was a little odd. However a recent leak by an online retailer a couple of weeks ago suggested that a LTE version could be on its way, and sure enough it has arrived.The 4G LTE version of the Moto G (2014) has made an appearance on Motorola Brazil’s website where customers are already able to purchase the handset. No word on when Motorola will be bringing that particular version stateside…

      In hopes of making it more readable and simpler, a few years ago, the search engine giant Google merged more than 60 privacy policies into one document. Apparently, following an investigation by European regulators who found the search engine’s terms to be ‘too vague’, Google has reached an agreement with the UK’s Information Commissioner’s Office over how it collects personal data in the country and will be making changes to its current privacy policy.

  • Gamergate Bleeds Into Wikipedia

    Richard Adhikari
    30 Jan 2015 | 1:00 pm
    The Gamergate controversy, which centers on sexism and sexual violence in the video game industry, has made things hot for Wikipedia, whose arbitration committee has taken punitive action against some of the people involved in the debate. The committee decided to impose a complete site-wide ban on one male editor, with the handle "Ryulong," said Wikimedia Foundation spokesperson Juliet Barbara. It also endorsed nearly 150 warnings, sanctions or topic bans affecting other editors on both sides of the issue.
  • Google Gives WebView the Cold Shoulder

    Richard Adhikari
    30 Jan 2015 | 5:00 am
    Google has decided not to fix vulnerabilities in WebView for Android 4.3 and older, sparking heated discussions among developers. Those versions of WebView run on the WebKit browser. Fixing them "required changes to significant portions of the code and was no longer practical to do so safely," explained Adrian Ludwig, lead engineer for Android security. Ludwig recommended steps users and developers can take to mitigate the potential exploitation of WebView vulnerabilities without updating to Lollipop, or Android 5.0.
  • SpaceX Video Stirs Excitement for Falcon Heavy

    Richard Adhikari
    29 Jan 2015 | 2:02 pm
    SpaceX on Thursday released a computer-generated animation demonstrating how the three Falcon 9 cores of its Falcon Heavy rocket, scheduled for launch later this year, would return to Earth. The boosters would land vertically at a selected site. The Falcon Heavy will be the most powerful rocket in the world, being able to lift more than 53 metric tons, or 117,000 pounds, into low earth orbit. That's equivalent to a Boeing 737 fully loaded with passengers, crew, luggage and fuel, and it is more than twice the payload of the next closest operational space vehicle, the Delta IV Heavy.

    Canada's spy agency, the Communications Security Establishment, has been eavesdropping on 102 free file upload sites, including Sendspace, Rapidshare and Megaupload, which has been shut down. A CSE program called "Levitation" lets analysts access information on 10-15 million uploads and downloads of files from such sites daily, according to documents released by whistle-blower Edward Snowden. Levitation can monitor downloads across Europe, the Middle East, North Africa and North America.

    28 Jan 2015 | 4:37 pm
    Patches for GHOST, a critical vulnerability in glibc, the Linux GNU C Library, now are available through vendor communities for a variety of Linux server and desktop distributions. Qualys earlier this week reported its discovery of GHOST, a vulnerability that allows attackers to remotely take control of an entire system without having any prior knowledge of system credentials. Qualys security researchers found the GHOST flaw and worked closely with Linux distribution vendors in a coordinated effort to develop a patch for all affected systems.

    Bill Brenner

    When it comes to patching vulnerabilities, Oracle does nothing small. In its latest quarterly CPU (Critical Patch Update), the database giant hands its customers 169 new security fixes affecting many products. The full patch matrix is here. SiliconANGLE offers a decent analysis of the vulnerabilities and patches. From Maria Deutscher’s report: One flaw that drew an outsized amount of attention is a misconfiguration affecting the enterprise technology stalwart’s popular E-Business Suite, which “gobsmacked” its discoverer, in his own words.

    Last week I wrote about the new anti-hacking laws President Obama plans to float in his State of the Union address and how the proposals are Draconian at best. I noted that it’s in our power to educate the masses and stop this thing before it becomes law. To that end, I have something to share with you. Derek Watson — better known in the security community as Blak Dayz (blakdayz) — posted the following call to action: Hackers. It’s time to UNITE. With these new proposed laws, they are literally coming for our freedom. If you are interested in joining in a fast…

  • Bad Anti-Hacking Laws: We Can Educate the Public

    Bill Brenner
    15 Jan 2015 | 2:19 pm
    There’s much alarm in the security community over new anti-hacking laws President Obama plans to float in his State of the Union address next week. The alarm is justified. What he proposes, as my friend Rob Graham (@ErrataRob) wrote in this important post, “are blunt political solutions which reflect no technical understanding of the problem.” Obama’s proposed anti-hacking laws are designed to arm companies with legal protections for sharing information with each other and the government about hacking threats. The President believes it’s necessary to help prevent…

    9 Jan 2015 | 5:22 am
    For the last few years I’ve been praising Microsoft for taking great strides to improve security. This morning, I’m tempted to take it all back. For the last decade, Microsoft has issued advance notifications the Thursday before each security patch release. It’s been a valuable service, helping IT security practitioners to be better prepared. Yesterday, the software giant announced it was ending the service, claiming that not enough people are using it. It’s a bad move that comes on the heels of other bad moves, which includes slashing a lot of good security talent in…

    Adverts are one of those things in life that we have to live with, because they’re everywhere and they pay, or subsidise, the many services that we use. Online we can get around that with adblock software, and someone has managed to develop it for real life. It’s called ‘Brand Killer‘ and it’s a custom head-mounted display created by a group of students for the PennApps hackathon. The idea is to try and make people “blind to the excesses of corporate branding” in a very literal sense. The headset itself is a combination of a camera, a pair of goggles,…

    Perhaps the most intriguing news of the day is that Microsoft has bought a minority investment in Cyanogen Inc – the company that is behind the popular Android “fork” CyanogenMod. CyanogenMod doesn’t come as standard on normal Android phones – instead it is an open source alternative to Google’s version of Android that can be (if you’re feeling brave) installed on many existing Android handsets. Its popular with techies in particular because it can often breath new life into old phones – bumping them up to, say, Android Lollipop or KitKat when…

Six months on though and we’re hearing rumours of what we can expect from the Surface Pro 4. According to TechieNews, the new devices will come in two variations: 12.9″ (same as the SP3) and a new, larger 14″ iteration. On the inside we can expect a 2160×1440 screen, 16GB of RAM and apparently up to 1TB in storage space. And of course, it will run full Windows…

More on that soon, but let's actually talk about how you might have trust in a software project, using Tor as an example. Tor has been in the news recently, and I've had a ton of people ask me about how safe it is to use, so I figured one click-bait headline is as good as another in having an open and honest discussion about Tor.

For years it has used a deft mix of censorship, arrests, armed force and, increasingly, money, to repress or soften calls for political change. But as he faces massive street demonstrations in Hong Kong pressing for more democracy in the territory, the toolbox of President Xi Jinping of China…

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

  • Ex-CEO of Opera Launches Vivaldi – A Powerful Browser for Power Users

    27 Jan 2015 | 7:56 am
    Opera Software has always had a fairly sizeable and loyal fan base. The decades old browser never quite went mainstream, at least not on the desktop, but it attracted droves of power users thanks to its innovative streak and host of unique features. However, with its switch to the Chromium engine, Opera ditched almost everything that made it unique, and in the process disappointed most of its power users. It has gone from being a cutting-edge internet suite to a light-weight Chrome shell. There are still many users who use Opera 12 – released over two years ago, as their daily driver.

    Bing Pulse, the real-time viewer polling and feedback tool from Bing, is going to be part of CNN and MSNBC’s coverage of the upcoming State of the Union address by United States President Mr Barack Obama. The way it worked in the past is analysts and pundits across networks and publications would try to make sense of the variety of feedback channels they get their data from, and then try to provide the updates to the viewers. Naturally that took some time and the final analyses would take hours and days, if not weeks. Instead, Bing Pulse will enable MSNBC and CNN to provide real-time…

The company discovered a technique to turn their MRAM memory cell arrays into very sensitive magnetic sensors that have a much larger range than any commercial sensor.The production process is very similar to the MRAM process the company uses, but with a different cell design. Basically it is a very simple sensor that detects changes in a magnetic field from a perpendicular magnet.Crocus thinks that this sensor can be used as a mechanical sensor for flexible displays.

That’s where the Am I Going Down? app comes in. The app was launched to help people conquer the fear of flying by providing cold hard stats on the unlikeliness that their flight will crash.

    I recently worked on a site and used Bootstrap v3 as the framework for my grid system. As I got far into the project, the requirement for Firefox versions crept downward to version 27. My carefully constructed columns started to crumble in this version of Firefox. After a little research, it turned out that the CSS box-sizing rule for Bootstrap had dropped the ‘-moz’ prefixes. Here’s what Bootstrap had in it: * { box-sizing: border-box; } *:before, *:after { box-sizing: border-box; } To add support for the older Firefox builds, I left the official Bootstrap file alone but…

The reason I did this is because it keeps my music playing even if I happen to restart my web browser. I can also put the Beats app I created in my doc for easy access. Unfortunately this means the app doesn’t integrate into my password storage app. This means I would have to log into it in a separate window, copy my password and paste it into the Fluid Beats app to start music.

So if you’re watching movies or animation and moving elements between monitors, you’ll not notice lag. Duet’s unique feature that allows this is that Duet connects to your Mac using the USB port and either 30 pin connector or Lightning connector. I’ve…

    Europe stands on the threshold of a major revolution in the way we teach our children of computing.

Let’s fix that! It is no longer enough simply to teach our children how to use computers. To a large extent they know this already (albeit perhaps less than they suppose), but more importantly technology changes so fast that the subject is out of date before it hits the classroom. What we should do instead…

Here is what we think of the keyboard case: The quality of the case was build up to standard unlike some of its Japaneses competitors , but the physical attachment to the iPhone was not so secure it would be easy to disconnect the case from the iPhone simply by dropping the device it self , this is a big factor when thinking about rather or not to connect this keyboard case that enhances typing or a protective case that can protect the device it self. The key layout is a bit small which caused for unnecessary typos (…

Little did I suspect that the animals are what would get the company in hot water this time.But following a public outcry after Go Daddy previewed the ad yesterday, the company has pulled the commercial, in which a pup named Buddy falls out of the back of a truck, makes a courageous trek home, only to found out he's been sold via a Go Daddy-based website.

    A new poll finds that most people aren't scientists. On a related note, researchers are still spending tons of money studying things we already know. In the most dramatic split, 88 percent of the scientists surveyed said it is safe to eat genetically modified foods, while only 37 percent of the public say it is safe and 57 percent say it is unsafe. And 68 percent of scientists said it is safe to eat foods grown with pesticides, compared with only 28 percent of the general public. Comments

The main purpose is to keep all their products on display so that consumers can get a hands on off them. This is a good move as all Moto products sell exclusively online and very often one has to buy one even without getting a demo.  The experience zones will also be a service centre where people can come to service their Moto devices. The most important thing to keep in mind is that a customer cannot buy a product at these stores and Moto will continue to sell…

For starters, it’s free if you upgrade within a year of its release. With this announcement, Microsoft moved away from its earlier policy of releasing Windows which had to be purchased each time it came out with a new version. Users on Windows 7, Windows 8, Windows 8.1 and Windows Phone 8.1 will be eligible for a free upgrade. A second feature called “continuum” also caught our attention. With continuum,…

However, Samsung has decided to put an end to this partnership. According to some reports, it looks like Samsung is ready to exclude Qualcomm processors for the Galaxy S6 in favour of its own chipset. Reportedly, problems arose when the Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 chipsets overheated repeatedly during testing of the Galaxy S6.

Much of this seems born of ignorance: some senior ministers clearly do not understand how the Internet works. Sadly, that includes Tony Abbott, Australia's Prime Minister, as this report in The Age indicates: "I'll leave social media to its own devices.

    Mammals drink milk when they're young. Maybe there are some exceptions to that, but the examples of milk-drinking mammals are pretty easy to find. People are mammals, and so the cow milk industry is sizable: the US alone produced over 200,000,000,000 pounds of cow milk in 2013. In other parts of the world, goat milk is more popular (and there are a lot of other kinds of milk that people drink, too). Okay, so why doesn't anyone drink pig milk? The Illinois Pork Producers' Association has an answer. Basically, it's harder to milk a pig, and cows are so much better at it now that it would be…
  • Google Finally Stops Playing Mute On Net Neutrality, Says New Rules Won't Hurt Google Fiber In The Slightest

    While Google was a major player in the net neutrality fight early on, the company performed a stark about-face on the issue sometime around 2010. Google was responsible for co-writing the FCC's original, wimpy net neutrality rules alongside AT&T and Verizon, which were jam-packed with loopholes and ensured that wireless networks and devices weren't covered at all. When called out on this, Google pretty feebly insisted they weren't being inconsistent, though it was clear to most folks that the company had shifted lobbying strategies in the hopes of fostering a better relationship across…

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?

    30 Jan 2015 | 3:49 pm
    Back in the days of Mac OS X 10.2-10.4, I toyed with backporting some of my programming projects, originally developed in Carbon with Project Builder, to MacOS 9, and downloaded MPW (since it was free, and CodeWarrior was not) to do so. The Macintosh Programmer’s Workshop was Apple’s own development environment for developing Mac apps, tracing its lineage from the Lisa Programmer’s Workshop, which was originally the only way to develop Mac apps (yes, in 1984 you could not develop Mac software on the Mac itself). A follow-up from last week's MPW story.
  • Tizen-powered Samsung Z1 doesn't avoid Google's ecosystem

    30 Jan 2015 | 3:45 pm
    Following delays of over a year, Samsung finally shipped its first Tizen-powered handset, the Z1, earlier this month in India. The arrival of Tizen on smartphones - remember it's been on Samsung's Gear smartwatches for almost a year now - has been a long time coming, and there's been plenty of speculation among press and mobile industry watchers that Tizen could emerge as a viable alternative to Android for the Korean electronics giant. What we've found during our initial hands-on time with an Indian Samsung Z1, however, is a phone that's very much at ease with Google's ecosystem. I want one…

  • How I built the developer's dream keyboard

    29 Jan 2015 | 3:33 pm
    Working one day in August of 2007, I couldn't help but realize that my regular PC keyboard didn't serve me as much as possible. I had to move my hands between the various blocks of my keyboard excessively, hundreds if not thousands of times per day, and my hands were uncomfortably close to each other. There must be a better way, I thought. This realization was followed by an overwhelming feeling of excitement as I thought about creating the perfect hacker keyboard 0 and later, the realization that, as a software developer, I was hopelessly clueless about hardware.

    (What you’re about to read was dictated by me into a machine.) Through the years, I’ve purchased numerous iterations of dictation software from the company now called Nuance. For some reason, dictating has never worked for me. Perhaps it’s because I was born after the Don Draper era. When I graduated from college, I could type 80 words a minute, which is probably faster than I can think. I can probably type faster than that now, but as anyone who has read this blog knows, the faster I type the more goofy things I say. And one of my rules of blogging is to not work over the…

    “Markets are conversations.” If you are an internet-marketing trivia master, you may recognize that quotation as Doc Searls’ prophetic observation that appeared 15 years ago as part of the Cluetrain Manifesto. Cluetrain began as a list of 95 theses posted on the website that captured the sentiments of Searls and three other tech-industry marketing veterans. The Cluetrain Manifesto quickly evolved into a best-selling book that provided many early online marketers with a foundation for understanding and predicting how buying and selling would change when buyers have…

Three more have switched to developing for business, leaving behind consumer projects. Last year, I observed in a post–one that included an email exchange  with Don Norman of Nielson-Norman and author of The Design of Everyday Things–that I believed the product release of Google Glass was bungled by Google.

There are a few interesting parts in the app but there is one piece I’d like to highlight: Swipe down to hide. This gesture doesn't delete your photo, it simply removes it from the gallery view. It's not a heavy action. There's no cognitive overhead, no thinking "wait, do I want this shot?" as there generally is when deleting items.

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

  • Opening and Closing

    Alex Goldfayn
    26 Jan 2015 | 2:09 pm
    If you want to grow revenue, nothing will do so faster, easier and more dramatically than marketing. Marketing opens what sales closes. We must sell, and we must close. But we must constantly be opening new opportunities. We must consistently create new opportunities for our sales function. If all you do is close, eventually, you’re walled in, trapped, with no opportunities (for growth) in sight. Your pipeline will run dry. To open, we must systematically communicate our value to people who can buy it. That’s all marketing is. To open, to grow, me must market.   The…

    Alex Goldfayn
    19 Jan 2015 | 4:31 pm
    We must market to existing customers as much as we market to prospects.There are two big reasons for this: 1. The competition is calling on them aggressively. Every time they say “no” to them, they make a conscious decision to say with you. We must help them make this decision, again and again, by clearly explaining all of the wonderful things we do for them. Right now, they probably don’t know about everything you do so well for them. 2. Your customers do not know about all of the products and services they can buy from you. When you do not market to your existing…

    Unlike your products and services, which need to be precise and exact, your marketing needs only to be helpful. I heard Alan Weiss say this once, and it has stuck with me ever since: In marketing, quantity trumps quality. The more that people hear from us, the more they will buy from us. So stop trying to make it perfect. Stop putting it off. Write or record something helpful to your customers and prospects, and send it to them. Then do it again. And again. Ready? FIRE! Then aim, assess and adjust. If it’s working, double down on it. If it’s not working, or you don’t like…

I will grow my company’s list of customers and prospects, because if my list isn’t growing, my revenue likely isn’t either. 3. I resolve to regularly mail or e-mail value to my growing list. My communications will focus on improving the lives and companies of my readers, not selling, pitching or promoting.

Sam Smith, Justin Bieber, and Kanye West posed with Ellen DeGeneres for her birthday selfie. Kanye flashed a big, toothy grin. Sam Smith shared the tiniest of smiles.

    Bruce Jenner has been front and center in the tabloid news for months. His changed appearance–his long, flowing hair and flattened Adam’s apple–has had many questioning if he is in fact in the throes of transitioning from a male to a female.

    Motorola Moto E is due an upgrade this year. After relative success of the Moto E in its earlier days, the device succumbed to the competition provided by the likes of Mi 1s as well as the Android One devices which in a way played on the strengths of the Moto E and bettered it for the same price point. However, looks like Motorola will come back in the game and stronger than ever with an interesting Upgrade to the Moto E. The surfaced leaks show a shape that is strikingly similar to the previous generation of the Motorola Moto E, however it is the internals and few add-ons which have caught…
  • Xiaomi Planning to sell the Devices via its own Website in India?

    After introducing the trend of flash sales which virtually everyone in the mainstream smartphone consumer tech world seem to have hooked on to, Xiaomi is planning to move away from Flipkart to its own website for hosting the sales of their products. It is worth noting that in China, all the Mi products are sold directly from their website rather than any sort of an exclusive partnership. The only reason, why we feel, this model was not implemented in India was due to the issues with warehousing and logistics coupled with the fact that Xiaomi had no idea about how hit the products will be with…

    If you asked any teenager between the age of 17 and 21, which application he uses the most, there is a fat chance it will be Snapchat. Given the disposable nature of the platform, teenagers are very comfortable with the platform for the harmless fun element of it. It is due to this wide range of audience that is already on Snapchat why several of the major brands such as Lacoste and Pepsi have started gradually utilizing the platform for digital marketing opportunities. Snapchat to their credit, seems to want to embrace this and has added a brand new Discover section which is visible just on…

    Earlier, it was rumored that Samsung would be dropping Qualcomm’s flagship chipset in favor of the South Korea’s own Exynos chipset. The primary reason behind refusing to incorporate one of the fastest chipsets available currently is some heating issues that were causing the processor of the Snapdragon 810 chipset to spike to its threshold forcing it to throttle down to prevent damage to the smartphone internals as well as to the chipset itself. It was also rumored that Qualcomm’s chipset was also suffering from GPU driver issues. While the primary reason for not adopting Qualcomm’s…

  • Front End Module Editing in Joomla 3.4

    30 Jan 2015 | 10:22 am
    In all the years that I have used Joomla I have never really seen the need for front end editing. Why bother? I could just do everything in the admin. There were always too many things that I couldn't do on the front end that meant I was forever switching between the two. Editing your site can be hard I get it that people don't want to be bothered with the complex interface of the administrator and prefer to edit their content in place. This has been possible for a very long time in Joomla for content items but not for modules. So you still needed to switch to the admin interface to edit…
  • That's a great question

    28 Jan 2015 | 9:21 am
    For years when creating web sites we've added a Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) section to our site. Please stop NOW. You don't need an FAQ The usual answer is that this is where we put all the questions that people are always asking us and it saves time answering the same questions over and over again. That's why it is called "frequently asked questions" - makes sense doesn't it. NO! Think about it Why is everyone asking those questions? There are several reasons but they all come down to it being your fault. If you had written clearer content then people wouldn't have any questions. If you…
  • Not all code is created equal

    16 Jan 2015 | 12:57 pm
    It should be no surprise that I am a supporter of the GPL licence for software. Today I would like to apologise to developers of javascript and icon libraries that I have unknowingly ripped off and defrauded. When I download an extension licensed as GPL I know that I am allowed to use that software how and where I want. However many extensions use libraries written by others and not all libraries are created equally. Unless I look at the raw files outside of Joomla it is often impossible for me to know what libraries are being used. Do you ever look? You should! I am not talking about "is it…
  • Length Matters

    13 Jan 2015 | 11:26 am
    We all know that size really does matter no matter what some nice people might tell you but does length matter as well? There is no point in writing great content if nobody will read it so length does matter - line length that is - what else did you think I was talking about. Too short If the length of the line too short then as a reader your eyes will be travelling left and right so often that it breaks the reading flow. Speed readers and content scanners also find that they are starting the next line before finishing the first and as a result may miss important content or misunderstand the…
  • Programming Joomla Plugins - I am not a developer

    16 Dec 2014 | 12:58 pm
    Earlier this year Jisse asked if I was prepared to review the book he was writing on Joomla plugins. Proof reading is something that strangely I enjoy doing even if it is quite a slow and tedious task. However I did warn Jisse that I wouldn't be able to review anything other than the language as "I am not a developer". I have always known that plugins are one of the most powerful features of Joomla but as "I am not a developer" I have always had to rely on plugins published on the JED or pay someone to develop them for me. After reading the book I have surprised myself by being able to…

    28 Jan 2015 | 4:41 pm
    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…

SDNs, or more specifically provisioning automation platforms service provider interconnections, and have crept into nearly all marketing materials and elevator pitches in discussions with submarine cable operators, networks, Internet Exchange Points, and carrier hotels.

  • PTC 2015 Focuses on Submarine Cables and SDNs

    20 Jan 2015 | 12:39 am
    In an informal survey of words used during seminars and discussions, two main themes are emerging at the Pacific Telecommunications Council’s 2015 annual conference.  The first, as expected, is development of more submarine cable capacity both within the Pacific, as well as to end points in ANZ, Asia, and North America.  The second, software defined networking (SDN), as envisioned could quickly begin to re-engineer the gateway and carrier hotel interconnection business. New cable development, including Arctic Fiber, Trident, SEA-US, and APX-E have sparked a lot of interest.  One…

    10 Dec 2014 | 5:02 pm
    By: Mary Ludloff and Terence Craig We’ve been promising an update to our book, Privacy and Big Data, since the just pre- and mostly post-Snowden era. When we proposed and wrote the book it was to fill a void. At the time, there was a lack of mainstream attention to the issues of privacy by the media and a lack of understanding of the issues and implications we all face in the digital world. As tech veterans of long standing, we have seen our world transformed for better and for worse by our industry. Much of the “worst” we chronicled in our book and at the time its release, many…

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

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

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

  • Flash or HDD for the Best Price/Performance?

    Jim Miller
    9 Jan 2015 | 3:21 pm
    Flash technology has proven to be a disruptive force in the storage marketplace. Server and network performance gains over the last decade have been substantial, but the hard drive performance needle has hardly moved. This situation has resulted in server utilization being reduced while waiting on storage input output (I/O) operations to be completed. Server virtualization has further contributed to this situation. Server virtualization has been deployed in most enterprises and has delivered great benefits, including environmental and footprint savings, more efficient server utilization, and…

  • Automating Change: The Key to Proactive IT Management

    Steve Brasen
    30 Dec 2014 | 1:03 pm
    Reflecting on my earlier career in IT management, I have to confess to a level of astonishment at how naïve IT administrative practices were just a decade or two ago. Failure events were common, and most organizations just accepted as immutable fact the reality of systemic firefighting. IT services critical to business operations were all too often held together with little more than a hope and a prayer. Sure, my colleagues and I were acutely aware of the importance of performing “root cause analysis” and implementing proactive management practices, but who had the time for that? The…

  • ORMs – Love them or hate them?

    18 Dec 2014 | 1:59 am
    For many reasons we have grown to love our ORMs. We enjoy the simplicity of Entity Framework, the way it separates us from the old much unappreciated world of stored procedures and the T-SQL. We also love the nHibernate for its maturity and the amount of features it provides. What they give us is simplicity and a neat level of abstraction over the database access code which allows us to develop quicker, all for free. But we all know that if someone gives us something for free, there must be a catch. Well, nothing is free in this world. In this case we get tons of unnecessary overhead. Even…

If you need more than just one look, there is a good chance that you are doing something wrong. And if you scratch you head an think: “What the heck was I thinking?”, you have definitely done it wrong. But what have gone wrong? Most probably the code works fine and at some point you knew it inside out. Why can’t you remember it now? Maybe your code wasn’t written clearly enough and in accordance with best coding…
  • How to use custom fonts in Android apps (and not get fat)

    1 Aug 2014 | 3:52 am
    Fonts have always been a vital part of brand identity and UI design. With the development of modern Web standards it has become easy to implement customized fonts in websites, but native mobile apps somehow still lag behind in this area. Platform guides warn us against unleashing our creativity in that aspect and state that the built-in fonts have been optimized for memory and performance constraints of mobile devices. I think today, with more and more horse power under the hood of our latest mobile gadgets, we should not limit ourselves to the modest assortment of default typefaces. Going…

    Peter Horsten

    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:…

If you focus on building an amazing product, people will find it, use it and talk about it. That is the basic foundation you need. Companies like Twitter, Foursquare, Reddit etc. now have millions.

Except for the literature enthusiast, most people would rather watch the movie than read the book. And even those who would read the book would rather watch the news than read a newspaper. Plus, what we see impacts us more than what we read because it seems much more real. That being said, blogs are still very popular and words are still necessary, even if it is only to accompany the video.

    If you’re an avid Pinterest user (or pinner, as the site prefers) you may have noticed a change to the search results you get on the site. Specifically, if you’re a man your search results just got a lot, well, manlier. That’s because Pinterest now changes which search results you see depending on whether you’re registered as a male or female. The change was first picked up by the Wall Street Journal, and since confirmed by Pinterest. Search results for thousands of terms are customized based on gender, sometimes looking almost completely different for men and…

    We just discussed how mobile SEO is more important than ever. And a big part of mobile SEO is simply making a website that’s clean and easy to use on a mobile device. But this issue just went from amber alert to red alert now that Google is sending out warnings to webmasters en masse. The warnings started coming in mid-January, and a surprisingly huge number of websites have received them. They don’t say any immediate action has been taken against the websites, and are worded to be a sort of helpful heads up. But coming from the world’s biggest search engine, you…

    We all know what a big difference SEO makes in visibility, traffic and ultimately conversions. For many companies, SEO has become even more important than online advertising. But does your SEO strategy target users on mobile devices, or is it stuck in the desktop past? Of course, not all users are on mobile, and those who are have many ways to find you besides just search. We’ve been hearing for years how mobile is the next big thing, but many businesses have told themselves it’s only a small portion of traffic or that mobile is all about apps, not search. It looks like that…

Last year European Union courts established a “right to be forgotten,” effectively bolstering their citizens’ privacy rights. Under that policy, citizens and residents of 32 European countries can request to have inaccurate or inappropriate information about them removed from search results. Google created a system for requesting removals and it seemed to be working fine. But now European regulators want to go a step further—a step all the way across the pond.

    Rachel Lindteigen recently penned a great piece on how to manage SEO for different local branches of a franchise. This presents a real problem for SEO because there are often individual websites, or pages on a single domain, for each location. They all represent the same brand and try to rank for the same keywords—often in very nearby geographic areas. We’ve found that different locations of any chain business can have similar problems, even if they’re not actually franchised. So how do you get them all to rank without cannibalizing each other?

    IBM CEO Ginni Rometty is getting a nice raise for 2015 and earned most of her bonus for 2014 even though the company's stock is performing terribly.

    In the past few years, as online shopping exploded and smartphones became the norm, the showrooming phenomenon — consumers using their phones to comparison shop in stores — seemed poised to gut the revenue of offline retailers. But now a recent report from BI Intelligence finds that retailers have discovered "reverse showrooming," or "webrooming," which is when consumers go online to research products, but then head to a bricks-and-mortar store to complete their purchase.   Reverse showrooming is actually nothing new. Since the early days of online shopping, more people have…

Just looking at the chart, it looks like iPad's sales growth peaked in last December, the same quarter Apple launched the iPad Air and iPad mini with Retina…

You  might remember Lizard Squad as the guys who ‘hacked’ the XBox and Play Station network over the Christmas holidays, and I’m using a lot of ‘quotes’ here because Lizard Squad didn’t really ‘hack’ XBox One or Playstation, they merely DDOS-ed the services.

    As we come to terms with the terrible events that occurred at the offices of Charlie Hebdo, I think we need to be cognizant of  what these attacks really mean, and how our response to these events (even in far away Malaysia) has severe repercussions on our future. As a Blogger and Techie, I’m 100% for absolute ‘no holds-barred’ Freedom of expression.. I’ve written so much on the subject it begins to bore people, but we have so little freedom of expression in this country, we must fight to preserve what we have, and rise up to pursue even more. The pursuit of freedoms…
  • Maxis Forum needs an upgrade

    28 Dec 2014 | 12:36 am
    Yesterday I Googled something about maxis that took me to a link. Unfortunately, Firefox wasn’t happy with Maxis, because I got the following screen: Firefox is the first of the mainstream browsers to end support of SSLv3, ever since Poodle was published. For those of you who aren’t keeping tabs of security issues–Poodle was a big vulnerability discovered in the 2nd half of 2014, that affected the SSLv3 protocol. The only fix for Poodle was to completely stop using SSLv3 altogether, not a bad idea, since the protocol itself is nearly 18 years old. In other…

    A couple of days back, I was at my in-laws doing some browsing on their PC. Now my in-laws have a Windows XP laptop, that isn’t secured, which is fine because as far as I can tell, I’m the only one that uses it. Most of them now go to their phones or tablets for internet access–nobody uses PCs anymore!! But I noticed something strange. I wasn’t able to access Amazon, which was where I was browsing for some Christmas shopping (but not logging in of course). Somehow every time I typed on the browser, it would re-direct me to a Lazada advert. Now this looks…

    Hands on Review: Walton Walpad 10X via - The Android tablet market is lacklustre, especially when you consider anything bigger than 8 inches. At that size only Samsung has any decent offering that validates purchase but those are pricey and not ideal for many buyers. The 10 inch form factor was never my personal favourite , I always preferred the more compact 7 Inch tablets. With the Walpad 10X, Walton attempted to bring to consumers specifications not found under the $300 price point coupled with great build quality.

But the stifled performance due to a bug (or ‘bug’- depending on how you would see it) is beginning to make people think twice.

    El Apple Watch podría ser el producto más esperado de Cupertino, aunque en mi caso, los dos lanzamientos que más espero este año son el MacBook Air de 12 pulgadas y el iPad Pro con su pantalla de 12 pulgadas. Sin embargo, aparte de unas pocas imágenes filtradas, todavía no hemos visto ninguno de estos dispositivos. Por suerte, el diseñador conceptual Martin Hajek está ya acostumbrado a convertir los rumores de próximos productos de Apple en hermosos renders en 3D, y lo ha hecho de nuevo con el iPad Pro y el MacBook Air de 12 pulgadas. Por un lado, tienes el MacBook Air de 12…
  • Por primera vez, Apple vende más iPhones en China que en Estados Unidos

    26 Jan 2015 | 11:45 am
    Apple presentará mañana sus resultados financieros correspondientes al cuarto trimestre del 2014, y muchos analistas esperan que la compañía anuncie, por primera vez, la venta de más iPhones en China que en Estados Unidos. Según diversos analistas, hubo dos puntos clave que ayudaron a que China superara a Estados Unidos como principal bastión de ventas de Apple. En primer lugar, á el hecho de que Apple se asociara con China Mobile el año pasado, la operadora de telefonía móvil más grande del mundo, lo que le permitió a Apple llegar a millones de nuevos clientes. En segundo lugar,…

    Si has tenido más de un modelo del iPhone, entonces te habrás dado cuenta de que el volumen del altavoz difiere de un modelo a otro. Hace un par de años publicamos un vídeo en el que se comparaba el volumen del altavoz de todos los iPhones existentes hasta esa fecha, o sea, desde el iPhone 2G (primer iPhone) hasta el iPhone 5. Pues bien, con el tiempo hemos recibido muchas peticiones de usuarios pidiéndonos que actualicemos el video para añadir los nuevos dispositivos de Apple, y hoy hemos decidido mostrarle al mundo cuál de los diez modelos de iPhone es el que mayor volumen ofrece a…

    Dear EarthTalk: How is it that antibiotics are being “overused,” as I’ve read, and what are the potential consequences? – Mitchell Chase, Hartford, CTThe development and widespread adoption of so-called “antibiotics”—drugs that kill bacteria and thereby reduce infection—has helped billions of people live longer, healthier lives. But all this tinkering with nature hasn’t come without a cost. The more we rely on antibiotics, the more bacteria develop resistance to them, which makes treating infections that much more challenging.According to the U.S. Centers for Disease…

    Nowadays, we use our cell phones for everything. They are mini computers that we carry around in our pockets. Gaming, social networking, reading, and pretty much anything else you can think of can be done on a phone, but it wasn’t always that way. Cellular technology has done some serious changing over a relatively short period of time. Large devices that were only capable of making calls at obscene prices have quickly changed into smartphones that can use data, send texts, and make calls for reasonable prices. Just how has the technology behind our cell phones changed over the…

    Matthew Hughes
    30 Jan 2015 | 10:00 am
    Change doesn’t happen overnight. I’m not just talking about lofty goals like curing diseases, bringing about world peace, or ending global warming. I’m also talking about your own personal goals, whether they are improving your grades in school, getting fit, or losing some weight. The inherent problem with goals is they’re all about the “what”, and not the “how”. Saying “I want to lose weight” does nothing to tell you how you’ll accomplish that. In substantive terms, it’s nothing more than a moan. A whinge. That is why…

    You’ve probably run into the situation at home or at the office where you were doing something confidential on the computer and someone else came by right at that time. If you haven’t planned ahead of time, the only thing you could do is try to minimize the application, which is fairly slow and will give the other person enough time to see what you were doing. In this article, I’m going to show you a couple of methods for quickly hiding your applications and windows, some of which will be more obvious than others.

    By default, Windows ME, Windows XP and Windows Vista included Windows Movie Maker (WMM) for creating and editing home videos. With Windows 7, it became a separate product part of the Windows Live Essentials suite. The latest version was released in 2012 as Windows Movie Maker 2012 for Windows 7, 8 and 8.1. Depending on your version of Windows, you may or may not be able to burn a WMV file to a DVD from WMM. Windows Vista and Windows 7 both included a free program called Windows DVD Maker, which was sadly removed in Windows 8. Using Windows DVD Maker, you can burn a WMV file to DVD directly…

I was recently in India and was getting very frustrated with the constant Webpage cannot load errors followed by the website loading 5 seconds later. I kept seeing the DNS lookup failed message, so I figured let me try another DNS provider and that made an absolute world of difference.

If you work in a corporate environment, this can happen all the time with custom software applications using proprietary formats. Even if you are a home user, it might be worth your time to change the default icon that is assigned for a text document or for all PDF documents, etc. This tip is really just for customizing the look and feel of Windows to your liking.

    I don’t know about you, but I get bored of the smartphone I have after 12 months of ownership! Mobile manufacturers release new models all the time. They often have innovative new features which our existing handsets don’t contain. To take advantage of such new gadgets, we usually upgrade our smartphones and cell network contracts. More often than not, that involves changing the network provider to get the best deal. Once upon a time cell networks would match upgrade deals from their rivals. These days, competition isn’t so aggressive. They are keen to retain their existing customers.

They are also useful for new sites that have few inbound links going to them from external websites. One of the most popular PPC services on the Internet is Google AdWords. Of course, the other major search engines also operate systems for corporate clients too. When you first sign up for such a service, one thing that will become obvious is how complex they are to use!

    In order to study how young fish such as salmon are affected by swimming through hydroelectric dams, scientists have traditionally equipped them with surgically-implanted acoustic tracking tags. Unfortunately, the implantation procedure can harm the fish, plus the weight of the device can affect their behavior. Now, however, a team at the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL) in Washington state has developed a much lighter acoustic tag, that can be injected into fish using a needle. ..

    When I first got into the online business/internet marketing space (way back in 2004) one of the ideas I saw thrown around a lot was this notion of getting business on “autopilot”. I always thought it was a little silly. It sounded like straight up hype to me. I mean how is it possible to get traffic, leads and sales on “autopilot”… the same numbers week after week without a lot of input on your part? Didn’t seem possible. And, for a lot of years I simply wrote it off as hype and didn’t think much more about it. Then, I started getting serious about…

    Folks, meet ZTE Blade S6, the latest attempt by the Chinese handset maker to tap into the young user base and young-at-heart users, as ZTE was quick to add. But how is ZTE going to win the hearts of the young? By throwing in an eight-core chipset, of course, and in this case, you’re looking at Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 octa-core chipset that packs a 1.5GHz processor. Though it is worthy to note that octa-core guarantee performance. Software and other hardware components plays a crucial role too.

    Nixie tubes, aka cold cathode displays, were what folks use when LCD and LED haven’t been invented. Much like incandescent bulbs, they are beautiful, but not quite efficient. Despite so, we have seen them put to good use in clocks even till today. You can even DIY one yourself if you want to, but nothing will be comparable to what MB&F and Frank Buchwald has came up with: the MB&F Nixie Machine. So what the heck is a Nixie Machine?

  • Dangerous glass fibers in cigarettes worsen lung damage for smokers

    19 Jan 2015 | 7:58 pm
    Shocking new research reveals that a specific type of lung cancer many smokers develop comes from tiny tears in their lung tissue caused by microscopic glass fibers, also known as glass wool, found in many conventional cigarette filters. These rips in the epithelial (soft) tissue fuel the development of tumors and cancerous cells due to the constant overload of toxins, namely pesticides, nicotine and ammonia, contained in commercial cigarette smoke. The filters of typical commercial cigarettes contain microscopic, needle-shaped shards of glass wool (like fiberglass insulation) which escape…

    Lo schermo del nostro portatile è certamente una comodità necessaria per rendere il nostro PC, appunto, un portatile.

    I get asked on a regular basis what I’m looking for in engineers. I think most people are expecting the answers found in a typical job description - e.g. CS degree or equivalent, 4+ years commercial software experience, work experience with modern language (i.e. Python, Ruby, Scala), multi-threaded programming, and so on. But there is a fundamental truth of hiring that often gets lost in traditional job descriptions: great engineers are not defined by their degree, number of years experience, or the technologies they work with - but by their core abilities / traits. Here are the 5 abilities…

    It’s no secret some of the best job opportunities in the Boston area are in technology startups. Last year venture capitalists invested almost $5 billion in local companies, making the tech sector one of the fastest growing segments of our local economy. In addition to the professional freedom and challenges that comes with joining a startup, the re-opened IPO market and a steady flow of M&A hold out the possibility of financial success should you pick a winner. But choosing the right startup can be challenging for professionals already in the community, and even more so for those…

A YouTube video of the presentation is provided below. In the video you can see the heritage of many of the modern technologies and services upon which our industry is built (e.g. personal computer, mouse, document collaboration, peer to peer networking, and more).

    I’ve made a few visits to Andreessen Horowitz over the last two years, and each time paid little attention to the books on the wall to wall bookshelves in the lobby. Arriving a little early for an informal coffee meeting last November, I spent a few minutes reviewing the books, which ranged from histories (e.g. Ambrose’s D Day) to tech non-fiction (e.g. Innovator’s Dilemma) to self-help / how-tos (e.g. Learning Rails). When the partner I was meeting came out, I couldn’t help but ask: “Where do all the books come from? Partners bring them in?” “Oh no,” he said. “Those all…

    The end of last year I spent a day in the Silicon Valley talking with a few venture investors and entrepreneurs to get a better sense of the current market. This pre-dated the raising of our B round, so the discussions were informal, and mostly with people with whom I had a pre-existing relationship. On the appointed day, I traveled from San Francisco down to Sand Hill Road to meet six different investors and two entrepreneurs. Here are random comments / takeaways from my chats: Why SV VCs Don’t Invest in Boston I know that it’s not that SV VCs never invest in Boston (e.g. CloudHealth,…

I last wrote about them in December when CrunchFund invested. Since then they’ve sold a LOT of shirts. They haven’t started offering pants or suits yet, but once they do they’ll already have your measurements. People on Android devices were frustrated that they couldn’t use MTailor.

The population has declined rapidly, and everyone has seen the images of abandoned buildings, drug violence and abject poverty. In other words, Detroit is the perfect place to begin anew. There is an energy there as people begin to rebuild. A willingness to experiment. A stubbornness to succeed. Tech startups can play a pivotal role in rebuilding, but infrastructure is needed. We are seeing a dramatic increase in the number of Detroit based startups looking…

And sure enough, they’re now calling it stolen information, and threatening publications that are sharing it with the public. It reminds me distinctly of the situation we found ourselves in in 2009 when a hacker delivered a truckload of internal Twitter information. See In Our Inbox: Hundreds Of Confidential Twitter…

    MTailor, one of our recent investments at CrunchFund, is a really amazing company. They make tailored shirts for men, except your mobile device is the tailor. You go through a quick scanning process that involves leaning your phone or tablet against a wall and then spinning slowly in front of it. Once that’s done MTailor has your measurements, which they say are 20% better than actual tailors they used for a study. I’ve never owned tailored shirts but I should have. I have a longer body than average and generally buy tall shirts when I can find them. That’s been harder with…

    As consumers’ media habits shift from evening primetime to ‘always-on’ screen time, marketers need to rethink how they interact with their customers.

  • Ramblings of an Entrepreneur

    Renee Schmidt
    8 Jan 2015 | 12:13 pm
    The life of an entrepreneur is not a particularly easy one. Doors open one day and for weeks or months new ones can remain shut. When doors are shut and no amount of knocking will open them, there’s nothing to lean on but certainty. Sometimes that certainty stems from a distant reminder of when a door unexpectedly flung open in the past. Other times that certainty borders on mania, stemming from nothing more than an inexplicable knowing from within. People sometimes remark to me of their admiration of how far I’ve come as an entrepreneur (how far is actually debatable, but that’s a…

    It’s been quite a while since I’ve picked up my proverbial pen and sat down to write a blog post.  Anyone who understands me well also understands that my mind is constantly abuzz with information, thoughts, and ideas. But for whatever reason I’ve lately been unable or unwilling to take a breather —and a moment—to express myself. It’s been a compounding problem, as I’ll soon explain.  Over lunch yesterday with a dear and long-time friend who I hadn’t seen in a while, I was offered some simple and valuable advice: just start writing. And so I am. In an increasingly…

    This past week I listened to a presentation for young professional (20s and 30s) from one of the largest asset management firms in the world. The objective, which is of course to educate the audience, is also meant to help the firm snatch up talent and future wealth management clientele while those prospects are still spring chickens. Although I found the information presented to be generally useful and relevant to the respective audience, I couldn’t help but take a devils-advocate view on —well— just about everything.

    Apple has posted the biggest quarterly profit ever made by a public company, but while they lead all other technology companies in the financial stakes, they have lost their position as a visionary in the field. Apple reported a net profit of $18bn (£11.8bn) in its first fiscal quarter, soaring past the previous record of $15.9bn set by ExxonMobil in 2012, as a result of record sales of its iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus.

    The integration of the internet and web-enabled services into our daily lives means that it doesn’t matter if you are running a local restaurant or a startup trying to become the next Facebook – fast and reliable broadband has become a necessity.

Email and social media obviously require internet access, but even the phone systems in most modern offices have moved to VoIP technology, leaving a business…

    Competition is what has kept the UK’s mobile industry competitive over the years, but recent acquisitions and consolidation are making the marketplace less competitive than ever. Spanish telecoms group Telefonica put O2 on the market a few months ago, and there has been interest from a number of parties including BT, but it appears that the UK’s largest mobile network will soon be sold to Three-owner Hutchison Whampoa for £10 billion.

    Microsoft has announced that it will offer Windows 7 and 8 users a free upgrade to Windows 10 when it is released later this year. The free upgrade will be available for 12 months after the release of Windows 10, as Microsoft has decided that it is more important to get the greatest number of people using Windows 10 as quickly as possible than to squeeze a few more dollars out of their existing customers. Apple has long offered free upgrades to its OSX operating system, and it results in them having fewer legacy installs to support and has the bonus of keeping users happy that they are still…

    It seems that the Google Analytics use of a public tracking code was a mistake. Anyone can use your tracking code on their site, which adds to your traffic, or they can create ghost visits and spam referrals by hammering Google Analytics with your code while never visiting your site. Oh, and the codes are easy to guess, so they do not even need to know about your site. In most cases, this is perfectly harmless (IMHO) as only Google Analytics data is affected and your reports look fun
