  • 5 Questions to Ask a Mobile App Developer Before You Start

    Jeremy Stephan
    21 Aug 2014 | 6:12 am
    When I’m talking with potential ArcTouch clients, they often share mistakes they made when they first engaged with a previous mobile app developer. Usually, they just didn’t ask the right questions.With that in mind, here are five questions you should always ask before you start a project with any mobile app design and development company.1. Will I own the code?Some app development firms offer a discount rate if they retain the rights to your app’s code during and after a project. There are a couple of reasons why this is a terrible idea for any business:If you ever want to make a…

    I’m putting together a timesheet in Excel and wanted to multiply my hours by an hourly rate. Ive been messing around for hours and reading up in the help but there’s nothing that suggests how this can be done. What’s the best way to do this? It turns out to be much easier than you think. It’s a great little technique that can be used whether you’re calculating what it costs to sit in McDonalds all day, or playing with pignose amplifiers at guitar center. Here’s what you need to do: First of all, make sure your hours are formatted in a time format. This…

    One of the USB ports on my desktop computer stopped working after I had plugged in a USB device and removed it without ejecting. I’ve done it a million times, but it looked like my luck finally ran out. The port seemed fine in Device Manager because there were no error or warning icons. So after doing a bit of reading online, I came across a Microsoft article that told me I should go ahead and uninstall the USB Host Controllers under USB Serial Bus Controllers in Device Manager. After that, you just have to restart your computer and Windows should find the hardware again and install it.

Such technologies include systems that detect when drivers are getting tired, that allow multiple cars to safely travel together in speed-controlled "convoys," or that warn drivers when they're drifting out of their lane. Now, in order to help foster the development of more such concepts, a new Swedish test-track facility has begun operations. ..

Should have picked Snapchat (which I didn’t see coming because I personally don’t need it very much). Highlight just hasn’t proven to be very addictive to either me or my friends. We talk about it often. I keep running it. Now, what did they do right? They did fix their battery issues. It doesn’t put a major strain on my battery anymore. It does have some users, it’s just that the user count isn’t going up very fast and the UTILITY…

In a city where people prefer to vote for charismatic politicians over intellectuals, White House cybersecurity coordinator Michael Daniel sees his lack of expertise as a selling point."Being too down in the weeds at the technical level could actually be a little bit of a distraction," he told Gov Info Security.

In this video we see Dickerson, once hired by the government to repair the flailing website, taking meetings and press conferences all on his very first day at the White House. And despite sharing the air and working in the same building as President Obama, colleagues in the White House seem pretty approving of…

    Jim Frederick, the first editor I had during my time as a tech writer for TIME, died unexpectedly on Thursday night. He was only 42, and I’m still in shock. The loss would be incalculable no matter what the circumstances, but it feels especially jarring and surreal given the bright future Jim was building for himself. Along with his wife Charlotte, he’d just switched coasts from New York to San Francisco in order to start a media consultancy. (I got the LinkedIn notification formally announcing the news just yesterday morning.) Jim’s most obvious legacy will be his work as a…

    Buick owners enjoying their car’s built-in LTE in a photo provided by GM Last week, General Motors invited me to a press event at which it showed off some new Buicks. Normally, such events involve driving new cars. But when we hit the road during this one, I willingly sat in the back seat and fooled around with my phone and tablet–because the primary purpose of the event was to demonstrate the 4G LTE broadband and Wi-Fi hotspot features built into the cars. Across its brands, GM is being particularly aggressive about rolling out in-vehicle LTE connectivity. Most Buick models,…

    They weren’t the best thing he ever did, or the one which we’ll cherish the most. But with the sad news of the passing of James Garner, it’s worth pausing to remember the commercials he did in the late 1970s and early 1980s for Polaroid. And–this being Technologizer–it’s how we’ll memorialize him here. When it came to celebrity spokespeople, Polaroid wasn’t stingy: Laurence Olivier did the first ad for the SX-70 camera, and Danny Kaye touted the ill-fated Polavision instant movie system. Hiring James Garner was a similarly classy move, but the…

If someone can figure out a way to make these techniques mainstream, he said, it could be a game-changer.

Create an Apple Store-like experience for more than just Apple products, all over. Apple can’t do this for obvious reasons (they’re not going to sell Android devices). Neither can Microsoft (they’re not going to sell iPhones).

  • Virtual Machine Brings X86 Linux Apps To ARMv7 Devices

    22 Aug 2014 | 9:07 pm
    DeviceGuru writes Eltechs announced a virtual machine that runs 32-bit x86 Linux applications on ARMv7 hardware. The ExaGear VM implements a virtual x86 Linux container on ARMv7 computers and is claimed to be 4.5 times faster than QEMU, according to Eltechs. The VM is based on binary translation technology and requires ARMv7, which means it should run on mini-PCs and SBCs based on Cortex-A8, A7, A9, and A15 processors — but sadly, it won't run on the ARM11 (ARMv6) SoC found on the Raspberry Pi. It also does not support applications that require kernel modules. It currently requires…

    rbrandis (735555) writes In a video announcement Thursday on Discovery Channel, MythBusters hosts Adam Savage and Jamie Hyneman revealed that longtime co-hosts and fan favorites Kari Byron, Grant Imahara, and Tory Belleci are no longer on the show. "This next season we're going back to our origins with just Adam and me," Hyneman said in the video, which explained that the change took hold as of the season's last episode on August 21.

  • Google Wants To Test Driverless Cars In a Simulation

    22 Aug 2014 | 4:34 pm
    An anonymous reader writes Google has been testing its autonomous vehicles on U.S. roads for a while now. In fact, they're required to, by law. "California's regulations stipulate autonomous vehicles must be tested under "controlled conditions" that mimic real-world driving as closely as possible. Usually, that has meant a private test track or temporarily closed public road." It's easy enough to test a few prototypes, but whenever autonomous cars start being produced by manufacturers, it'll become a lot more complicated. Now, Google is lobbying to change that law to allow testing via…

My current phone's battery is mediocre — I can put up with it, but I've been thinking about getting a new one. My four-year-old ThinkPad holds less of a charge than I'd like, and less than it did when I bought it. In all these cases, the only thing holding me back from buying a new battery is that I'm not sure where to find a good one. Searching for my phone's battery on Amazon (or any major online retailer) yields a dozen results, all fairly cheap. But which are reliable? They all seem to have…

  • Dear Smartwatch, thanks for the notification, now what?

    Ben Bajarin
    22 Aug 2014 | 3:04 am
    Every now and then I try out a variety of smartwatches. The latest I am putting through its paces is one based on Google’s own Android Wear platform. I keep hoping I’ll crack the nut and discover something new that may explain why this particular product might be successful. I’m still skeptical, but perhaps I found some light at the end of the tunnel. The value proposition of smartwatches, to date, is notifications. What stands out to me, each and every time I use a smartwatch, is that nearly all notifications pushed to my wrist are just duplicates of what is on my…

    Tim Bajarin
    22 Aug 2014 | 1:54 am
    For those of us who have followed the life of Steve Jobs, we know most of the products he brought to market were ones he wanted to use himself. They came out of his personal life experiences. The iPod came out of his love of music and his frustrations with not being able to access what he wanted and play it back at will. The iPhone came out because he thought early smartphones were not great and he designed it around what he would want in a smartphone. The iPad was his version of making a Mac as portable as possible and replicating a computing experience, tied with new forms of content and…

    In last week’s column, I talked about the current state of smartwatches. I described weak demand met by weak supply, and the resulting poor sales of the offerings in the market today. I also talked about what it might take for a new product in this category to stimulate demand. One of the potential use cases for a smartwatch or other wearable is payments, and I’ve been asked by several reporters over the last few weeks whether the iPhone 6 will have an NFC chip, potentially for payments. Today I want to explore that particular opportunity a little more. The current state of mobile…

    20 Aug 2014 | 1:49 am
    I’ve spent the past week with a Surface Pro 3. I’ve used every previous version of Surface and given what the promise of a 2-in-1 PC was supposed to be, the Surface Pro 3 is the closest yet to fulfilling that promise. I was very harsh on the original Surface and, while my overall thesis (which we will get to) on the 2-in-1 PC form factor has not changed, my stance on the Surface itself has softened. Don’t consider this a review of the Surface Pro 3. There are many good reviews of the Surface Pro 3 and serious buyers should read those as well. I’d like to do a more…

In particular, Bates raised several not very convincing arguments against the appointment of an advocate to act on behalf of the surveilled, thus turning this secret court into something more adversarial.

It literally fits right into the card slot of any ATM, essentially allowing unfettered access to cards as they slide through. Add in a tiny camera and you’ve got a complete card cloning system.

    22 Aug 2014 | 6:49 pm
    There was one point in time where AT&T and T-Mobile had a great relationship, which was a few years ago when both companies agreed to merge with one another. However due to regulatory disapproval, that deal never happened. Instead AT&T was forced to pay T-Mobile a breakup fee amongst other things. From there on, their relationship has gone down hill. Now it looks like AT&T’s pre-paid carrier, Cricket Wireless, has taken jabs at T-Mobile too. In a recent promotion that Cricket Wireless launched, they are targeting T-Mobile and MetroPCS customers by offering them a $100 credit…

    The Moto X+1 has been talked about for quite a while now and is expected by many to be the successor to the Moto X from 2013. Recently thanks to a parting gift from famed leaker @evleaks, we caught a glimpse of the handset’s press rendering and now thanks to Brazilian online retailer Livaria Logos (via Droid-Life), the specs of the upcoming handset and the new Moto G have been revealed. Now why should we believe a retailer’s specs, you ask? Well for starters, Livaria Logos was responsible for revealing the accurate Moto E specs ahead of its announcement, so there is a good chance that the…

    Come 3rd of September, there is a very good chance that Samsung will be taking the wraps off the Galaxy Note 4. Given Samsung’s history of unveiling Galaxy Note devices at IFA 2014, we guess it makes sense that Samsung will be taking this opportunity to reveal their latest handset, and thanks to a recent teaser video by Samsung, we guess it’s all but confirmed. The South Korean tech giant has recently released a teaser video which seems to be dropping hints about the Galaxy Note 4 all over the place. The video has been titled “Ready to Note?” and even mentions “Your Note for…

    It has been several years since HTC had released a tablet, but if the rumors are to be believed all of that could change in 2014. According to reports, HTC is apparently set to release the Nexus 9 tablet and if recent photos are proof, we could have caught our first glimpse of it. Now we know some of you guys are understandably skeptical, and we are too ourselves. However according to a recent sighting on the WiFi Alliance website, it seems that we have pretty solid evidence that a HTC tablet does exist, although to be fair we can’t be 100% certain it is the rumored Nexus 9. As you can see…

    Assuming that everything goes according to plan, there is a good chance that Google could be set to release Project Ara in 2015. Now given that we still have a few more months until 2015, this means that there are probably still plenty of revisions Google could make to Project Ara ahead of its release. Well the good news is that it looks like one of those revisions includes an upgraded processor. In a recent Google+ post, Google announced that they expect to have a prototype unit of Project Ara in 2015 that will come with a new Rockchip CPU. Google’s choice to go with Rockchip has raised a…

    To most people, myself included, a USB cable is little more than a mandatory accessory used to power and sync our gadgets.

    Christiano Amon, co-president at Qualcomm's chip business, thinks that chip sales will become progressively stronger in China as the country moves towards 4G LTE. Qualcomm is currently having a hard time in the Chinese market, but with LTE adoption on the rise, Qualcomm should stand to benefit. Amon spoke about the company's expansion in China during an interview earlier this week. According to Amon, Qualcomm will be one of the leading chip makers for the Chinese market once people are buying more high-end and LTE devices.Continue reading Qualcomm planning on strong sales in China Related…

    A flaw in Android's GUI framework let university researchers hack into applications with up to 92 percent success. They tested apps from Gmail, H&R Block, Newegg, WebMD, Chase Bank, and Amazon. "Changes in the shared memory side channel allow an attacker to infer if there is an activity transition going on in the foreground," said researcher Zhiyun Qian, an assistant professor at the University of California at Riverside. "This is a design choice by modern OSes ... . The same attack may work as well [on other mobile OSes]," he added.

    The U.S. Transportation Security Administration, part of the Department of Homeland Security, has spent more than a billion dollars on full-body scanners designed to strengthen airport security. It turns out that at least one model of scanner in use for four years -- the Rapiscan Secure 1000 full-body scanner -- easily could have been foiled by a savvy bad actor. In addition, it harbored software flaws that made it vulnerable to cyberattacks. That was the conclusion of nine researchers who presented their findings Thursday at the USENIX security conference in San Diego.

    There is a chance that Apple may be forced to postpone the launch of the hotly anticipated "iWatch" or health band -- perhaps pushing it back to 2015. Apple apparently is facing wide-ranging production issues involving components, system design, manufacturing, and integration between hardware and software. Holy macaroni. In addition, there have been dozens of rumors surrounding Apple's investment in manufacturing facilities that can produce super-hard sapphire glass.

    After Barnes & Noble bled serious cash trying to create its own Nook e-reading tablets to compete with Amazon's Fire and Apple's iPad -- eventually, scrapping most of the Nook-building unit -- I figured it was pretty much down for the count. The announcement in June of its deal to let Samsung give select tablets the "Nook" brand seemed more like a cry for help them a business decision that had much chance of success. I have to admit that I utterly missed how important this little summertime move really was, and will prove to be.

Let’s have a contest at each conference for sleaziest booth. The vendor who wins gets a design-to-be-determined award sure to amplify their embarrassment and encourage them to grow up. Thoughts?

I’m sure I’ve even written a few headlines that played up the fear factor to get clicks. I’m human, and humans are often misguided. But if I’ve learned anything, it’s that throwing around words like “terrifying” and “scary” do more harm than good — especially when you’re using them at Black Hat, BSidesLV and DEF CON.

  • Lasers could replace pinpricks for diabetics

    Diane Shipley
    22 Aug 2014 | 7:04 am
    To manage their condition, many diabetics rely on home-testing systems to check their blood sugar levels. This involves pricking a finger to draw blood, which can be painful and isn’t ideal if you’re out and about. Now a team from Princeton University Engineering School has developed a new technique that measures blood sugar using lasers – no needles necessary. In clinical tests, they shot a (harmless) laser at their subjects’ palm, where sugar molecules in the body started to absorb it. This allowed the machine to measure the amount of sugar in the dermal interstitial fluid…

With so many coffee shops (sometimes three or four all within the same square mile) that adds up to A LOT of coffee, and a new startup is planning on turning that coffee into petrol and heating energy.

    Over $200,000 has been raised on crowdfunding platform GoFundMe in support of Officer Darren Wilson, the police officer who shot Michael Brown, which has led to the widespread and well publicised unrest in Ferguson, Missouri. The fund was started on August 17th and apparently the proceeds will go to Wilson and his family to pay legal fees and “any financial needs they may have”. As you might imagine this has proved, umm, controversial to say the least given that the Officer killed an unarmed teenager in a situation loaded with racial tension. By comparison, a campaign on the same…

We even took a 24-hour #DigitallyDark challenge where we gave up our smartphones for 24 hours to see how it would feel. Well, August is Device Theft Awareness Month, and we wanna talk more about what you can do if you find that you're one of over 3.1 million Americans who'll likely fall victim to smartphone theft this year. A staggering 1.4 million people who lost their devices in 2013 never got them back--that is 4.5 million lost and…

    12 Aug 2014 | 5:43 pm
    The founders of Siri are working on a new service called Viv that can link disparate sources of information together to answer questions: But Kittlaus points out that all of these services are strictly limited. Cheyer elaborates: “Google Now has a huge knowledge graph—you can ask questions like ‘Where was Abraham Lincoln born?’ And it can name the city. You can also say, ‘What is the population?’ of a city and it’ll bring up a chart and answer. But you cannot say, ‘What is the population of the city where Abraham Lincoln was born?’” The system may have the data for both…

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

    Monday’s WWDC Keynote was easily the largest set of changes made to Apple’s platforms since iOS 2 was announced in 2008. The effects of what was announced will be felt and discussed for years to come. There is a lot to think through and write about, which I will be doing in the coming weeks. However, something struck me during the keynote that felt fairly small but, upon thinking about it afterward, I think could end up being important to Apple’s future success. Apple announced further updates to their cloud service where you can save all of the photos and videos you take,…

    4 Mar 2014 | 11:44 pm
    Tesla plans to build a massive new lithium ion factory that would double world production volume. Doing so could dramatically change the car industry: When Tesla first began working on its Model S saloon barely five years ago, lithium-ion batteries were priced at about $1,000 a kilowatt-hour (kWh). Manufacturers are notoriously secretive about pricing details, but industry insiders hint that prices have now slipped to anywhere from $400 to $750 a kWh. Even so, that means the 85 kWh pack in a Model S costs Tesla between $34,000 and $63,750. A study by the Boston Consulting Group projected that…

  • LG's 55EA9800 curved OLED TV now shipping for $2,799 in the US

    19 Aug 2014 | 8:51 pm
    It feels like I'm writing the same post over and over again - LG lowers the price of their OLED TV again... Only 7 days ago I posted that LG's 2013 OLED TV model, the 55EA9800 is down to $3,198. And I estimated that it's likely we'll see a 55" OLED TV for less than $3,000 very soon. Well! That did not take long. Amazon is now offering the EA9800 for only $2,799 via online retailer MCMelectronics.LG recently launched their new 2014 55" curved FHD model (the 55EC9300) for $3,499. They probably do not produce the EA9800 no longer, so supply for the older model is probably limited. LG will…

RENs, grown under ulta-high vacuum are both magnetic and semiconducting.The team is basing its work on europium nitride, which is not usually magnetic, but has been "tricked" into behaving like a magnet by being produced with slightly too few nitrogen atoms. Those RENs are grown in France's Centre for Research on Hetero-Epitaxy and Applications.Source: ZDNet
  • Graphene Quantum Dots to enable next-gen flash memory devices

    19 Jun 2014 | 2:36 am
    One of the problems with flash memory is that it is sensitive to defects. To solve this problem, researchers from Samsung Electronics are developing flash devices based on graphene quantum dots (GQDs). The performance of such a device is promising, with an electron density that is comparable to semiconductor and metal nanocrystal based memories. Those flash memory can also be made flexible and transparent.The researchers used GQDs in three different sizes (6, 12, and 27 nm) between silicon dioxide layers. The memory of the QDs depend on their sizes: the 12 nm dot for example offers the…

  • How do I install Mavericks on my old Mac?

    Owen Cutajar
    21 Aug 2014 | 10:35 am
    I have an old Mac I’d like to install Mavericks on but I seem to have lost the admin password. How can I do this? Believe it or not, you don’t really need to be an admin to upgrade your Mac OS. However, you do need to boot right into the installer rather than try and launch it from your desktop. You might need a machine you DO have admin access to to create the bootable media, but that’s really all you need. Here’s what you need to do: Before being able to create a bootable OS X installer, you’ll need to do the following first: Use the Mac App Store to download…

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

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

The tower I bought for my plan isn’t cutting it though, what do you recommend? Putting all your servers on one box is a great plan. It’s definitely more efficient than lots of small servers, both in terms of power and space. However, trying to fit them all on a tower or desktop isn’t the way forward. You need a proper server, located in a proper data centre to ensure…

    Canonical, the parent company of Linux operating system Ubuntu, recently discontinued its cloud service Ubuntu One, after coming under some heavy pressure from its competitors. The decision drew ire from many Ubuntu users, and actually sheds some light on the fact that cloud based storage isn’t the final piece of data security puzzle. Imagine if Ubuntu One was the sole player in the cloud storage business, and suddenly you were told to withdraw your data from the servers or it will be removed within a stipulated amount of time.

  • How Much Does It Cost to Outsource App Development to India?

    Mehul Rajput

    App entrepreneurs always look to cut down development costs while ensuring quality. When it comes to creating apps, the amount of money to be spent entirely depends on the type of app the developer wants to create. The cost of a simple enterprise app would be much less than a medium enterprise app, whose cost would in turn be less than a complex enterprise app. Building a mobile application mainly involves human capital. If there is a single person working on the app development, the costs are obviously going to be lower. Excluding the costs of the hardware involved in the process of app…

    It's nice to know that almost all of the 1,000 business affected by this still haven't notified their customers. You'd think there would be some kind of law that required businesses to notify customers of data breaches. More than 1,000 American businesses have been affected by the cyberattack that hit the in-store cash register systems at Target, Supervalu and most recently UPS Stores. The attacks are much more pervasive than previously reported, and hackers are pilfering the data of millions of payment cards from American consumers without companies knowing about it, according to a new…

  • 5 Examples of Insect-Inspired Robotics

    Adam Thompson
    4 Aug 2014 | 10:50 am
    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. Functions and behaviors that evolved over…

    Adam Thompson
    6 Jan 2014 | 9:02 pm
    Professional web designers have been frustrated for years by coding. According to surveys conducted among web designers, about 70% of a budget is spent on coding. It is a major expense, increasing the cost of a project, thus eating into a designer’s profit margin. Coupled with the rapid growth of ecommerce and businesses needing an Internet presence, a designer’s workload can become problematic. Quick but professional turnaround is key, which leads some designers to visual website design platforms. Adobe, one of the most well-known companies in the design industry, recently…

  • Crime And Punishment? 33 Months In Jail For Filming And Uploading Fast & Furious 6

    Mike Masnick
    22 Aug 2014 | 7:39 pm
    As a whole bunch of folks sent in, over in the UK, a guy named Philip Danks has been sentenced to 33 months in prison for camcording Fast and Furious 6 and then uploading it to the internet. As is all too often the case, the UK authorities more or less let the movie industry, in the form of FACT (the Federation Against Copyright Theft) run the entire investigation. FACT employees were involved in all facets, including controlling most of the interview after Danks was detained. If that seems... questionable, you have a point. As TorrentFreak now notes, while 33 months may seem extreme, part of…

    The ODNI continues to comply with court orders from FOIA lawsuits but its compliance is in letter only. Declassifying documents the way the ODNI does isn't helping further the debate on privacy vs. security or making the government's arguments for surveillance dragnets any more clear. Two more documents were released late Friday, with one of them being more about what it doesn't include than what it does and the other potentially leading to irreversible eye damage. First up, the FBI's report on the maintenance and use of [REDACTED] databases. About the only thing surviving the redaction knife…

    Butter is an awesome addition to nearly any breakfast food (except for cereal, but who knows, have you tried it on cereal?). One of the only problems with butter is that sometimes it's not as spreadable as you'd like it to be. Sure, you can buy special tubs of butter-like substances that are more spreadable, but sometimes you just want a cold pat of real butter on your toast. Here are a few suggestions that could make your life with butter everything you've ever dreamed. Some folks adamantly recommend that everyone should NOT store their butter in a refrigerator.

Around 2 million people are incarcerated in America, giving us nearly one-fourth of the world's total prison population. Spending any length of time in prison is a good way to destroy your future. But even if you never spend a day inside -- or even end up facing charges -- there's a good chance you'll still be facing a bleak future should you ever have the misfortune to be booked. Over the past 20 years, authorities have made more than a quarter of a billion arrests, the Federal Bureau of Investigation…
  • Judge Kozinski Calls Out Former FISC Judge John Bates For Claiming To Speak For The Entire Judicial Branch

    22 Aug 2014 | 1:49 pm
    A few weeks ago, former FISC judge John Bates (now helming the Administrative Office of the US Courts) sent a letter to the intelligence oversight committees arguing that the Senate's USA Freedom Act would do too much damage to the NSA and the FISA Court. Bates feels the toothless bill passed by the House would be a much better fit for the FISA Court. In particular, Bates raised several not very convincing arguments against the appointment of an advocate to act on behalf of the surveilled, thus turning this secret court into something more adversarial.

    The last time I shaved was the morning of my father’s funeral, which was a month ago. I wanted to have a physical sign of my mourning. Originally I thought to shave my head, but the first thing that Dad said to me when I first arrived in the hospital to see him before he passed was “C.K., your hair is beautiful!” I decided to grow a mourning beard and give it at least a month. It’s been a month, and as you can see, I’m not genetically inclined to grow a beard. Or at least not quickly. It’s actually on the verge of becoming a real beard, and I’m not…

    Usually, when T-Mobile starts crowing about being the ‘un-carrier,’ they’re pretty indiscriminate when it comes to blasting the other carriers. Not so this week, as T-Mobile stepped up to the mic and spit vicious rhymes about Sprint’s substandard service. If this was rap beef, Sprint’s career would be over. What T-Mobile is offering is actually pretty simple—it’s a referral program.

  • 5 Effective Ways to Monetize Freemium Apps

    Raja Manoharan
    23 May 2014 | 3:21 am
    App monetization is a hot topic today.

In fact, free apps routinely outperform paid apps in all categories save a couple (business utilities and navigation). Does that mean you’re doomed never to make a profit from your efforts? Not at all. Freemium has become the new standard, and some experts expect it to account for up to 93% of the global app market in just a…

In fact, most marketing experts have no idea why one post goes viral when another doesn’t achieve that critical mass. However, while viral spread might be the Holy Grail of online marketing, creating content that get shared is more important. You might never attain “viral” status, but good content that’s shared…

Your email messages may never get read or, in the worst case, may get caught in the Spam folder but tweets and @mentions are very likely to get noticed. When you are travelling or going on a vacation, with limited access to the Internet, you often create an “out of office” reply in your email program to let people know that you won’t be able to respond to them right away. How about doing something similar for people who are trying to reach you through Twitter? What will the Twitter Auto-Responder do Unlike…
  • How to Create RSS Feeds for Twitter

    Twitter has dropped support for RSS Feeds but there is a simple solution that you can use to generate RSS feeds for your various Twitter streams including Twitter search results, user timelines, favorites and even Twitter lists. Without RSS feeds, it is difficult to use your Twitter data elsewhere. For instance, you can no longer create recipes in IFTTT that get triggered when there’s a new tweet that @mentions you.

    Seems like Samsung is all set to release the Galaxy S5 LTE-A in Europe. The Korean giant just released a European firmware that is based on Android 4.4.4 Kitkat. The release of the firmware is peculiar and a huge hint towards the imminent release of the Galaxy S5 LTE-A in European countries. The firmware is currently available in United Kingdom and Switzerland and hopefully, we will see it making an appearance in more countries as well.

  • An Intel-MediaTek Deal Makes Sense, But is Not Likely

    Sam Reynolds
    21 Aug 2014 | 2:15 am
    An outright takeover of MediaTek by Intel to give Intel a fighting chance in the mobile market is likely to occur in the next two-to-three years, if one analyst’s prediction is to be believed. RBC Capital Markets Analyst Doug Freedman said in a research report released Wednesday that such a deal will happen as Intel struggles to organically increase its mobile market penetration organically while increasing shareholder value. For Intel, an acquisition of MediaTek — which doubled its baseband chip revenue between 2007 and 2013 from 7.3% to 14.4% — would give Intel a 30% market…

    We are not a road-trip family — we fly — but last week we drove from Chicago to Niagara Falls and Toronto. Which meant more than 20 hours in the car round-trip and between destinations. With two 5-year-olds. And so, they asked “why?” approximately 200,000 times. And we answered. Kids don’t hesitate to clarify, dig deeper, and understand precisely. Adults do. We don’t ask “why” for reasons that boil down to self-limiting beliefs: we don’t want to impose, offend, or project that we do not understand. These are confidence and self-esteem…

All of which is why we must obtain and communicate the thoughts and feelings of our happy customers. With testimonials and case studies, we must let our customers tell their peers about what they love best about us. There is nothing we can say that is more…

In order to make sure that it is the leading provider of chipsets, the latest chipset that the company is working on is also a chipset that supports 64 bit operating systems. Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 810 is labeled with the code number MSM8994 and is reportedly still being tested on AnTuTu Benchmark. The unofficial…

    Samsung might be experiencing some trouble with the lack of revenue in recent months, but it is not going to hamper the progress of the smartphone manufacturing giant in delivering its flagship devices to the technological populace. While the Galaxy Note 3 was a beast in terms of performance and features, it is about to be usurped by its successor; the Galaxy Note 4, whose specifications have been leaked. The Galaxy Note 4 will possess a 5.7 inch screen, which is the same screen size as its predecessor, with a slight touch in upping the total number of pixels in that screen size. First off,…

    The e-commerce giant and Jeff Bezos’ Fire Phone might be packed with a lot of great features; but there were initial problems that were to be encountered with the device, as expected. While it is common for software to start developing bugs and issues overtime, the fact that these issues are able to get written off or at the very least mitigated, is very impressive. While the device did not have technical specifications that would leave users awestruck, it has enough features to steal their hearts. The first update for the Fire Phone has allowed users to finally take control of the…

Here’s a real example of an existing website that’s a few years old and does not have a mobile or responsive site: Enough said? This website is on track to have more mobile users than desktop users very soon, so it makes sense that they should have a mobile website.

The tests can be custom, include navigation flow, a quick visual glance test or an actual navigation flow test.

      Want to make the most out of a single wall outlet or charger? Samsung has a solution for you: a 3-in-1 micro USB cable. As its name states, the US$40 cable will let you charge three micro USB-powered devices at the same time. This will be a perfect travel companion, we are going to admit. However, you must remember that the split nature of the cables mean power is split evenly between three devices so it will take you longer to charge your gadgets. Source: Ubergizmo

  • The Future of Mobile Apps for News

    Frédéric Filloux
    17 Aug 2014 | 11:18 am
      The modern smartphone is 7 years old and yet, when it comes to designing mobile applications, we are still barely scratching the surface. Today we’ll see how harnessing technology already embedded in a phone can unleash great potential.  A mobile news app has simple goals: Capture and retain reader attention, and repeat the process, several times a day. Pretty straightforward. But not that simple in the real world. For a news provider, the smartphone screen is the the most challenging environment ever seen. There, chances are that a legacy media or a pure-player will find itself in…

      iPad sales are falling – but the sky is not. We’re merely dealing with a healthy case of expectations adjustment. The tablet computer has always felt inevitable. The desire to harness the power of a computer in the comfortable form of a letter-size tablet with a keyboard, or perhaps a stylus for more natural interaction — or why not both? — has been with us for a very long time. Here we see Alan Kay holding a prototype of his 1972 Dynabook (the photo is from 2008): (credit: Alan prophetically called his invention a personal computer…

    10 Aug 2014 | 11:53 am
      With one million titles and no human guides, the Apple App Store has become incomprehensible for mere mortals. A simple solution exists: curation by humans instead of algorithms. Dear Tim, You know the numbers better than anyone — I don’t need to quote them to you — but we all know that the iOS App Store is a veritable gold mine. Unfortunately, the App Store isn’t being mined in the best interests of Apple’s customers and developers, nor, in the end, in the interests of the company itself. The App Store may be a gold mine, but it’s buried in an impenetrable jungle. Instead…

    3 Aug 2014 | 8:51 am
    When Apple announced its 64-bit A7 processor, I dismissed the speculation that this could lead to a switch away from Intel chips for the Macintosh line for a homegrown “desktop-class” chip. I might have been wrong. “I don’t know exactly when, but sooner or later, Macs will run on Apple-designed ARM chips.” Thus spake Matt Richman in a 2011 blog post titled “Apple and ARM, Sitting in a Tree”. Richman explained why, after a complicated but ultimately successful switch from PowerPC chips to Intel processors in 2005, Apple will make a similar switch, this time to ARM-based…

    Throughout time there have been many kinds of advertising strategies, and as these practices evolve we have found out the things that work, and the things that do not. The tendency to make the consumer feel more worthy if they have a particular product, for example, has proved to be very effective. At the same time, making a consumer feel bad about themselves has also been found to work very well, although the former of these two methods is more positive. When testing the effectiveness of selling a brand versus selling a story, we found that the latter of the two is much more efficient. Here…

  • Surface Pro: What The Kickstand?

    Sahas Katta
    3 Mar 2013 | 11:16 pm
    I decided to purchase a Microsoft Surface Pro when it made a debut last month. It seemed like the perfect device which could function both as a laptop and a tablet. Since it features a full-blown Windows 8 Pro operating system, I could use for just about anything including Photoshop or running Ubuntu in Virtualbox when coding. The 128 GB model goes for about $999. Throwing in a type keyboard brings the price tag up to about $1,100. The Intel i5 processor, a full HD display, and a USB 3.0 port makes the package even more attractive. A comparable 11-inch Macbook Air with a 128 GB SSD still…

He is the co-founder of the student organization Silicon Students and the summer program Startup Dream Team. Ideas are cheap. They are often stolen and copied easily. Simply having a good startup idea doesn’t guarantee success for entrepreneurs. What matters is the ability to execute that idea and transform it into a real company. This statement is common sense in the startup world and this is why Startup Dream Team,…

    Defined as the largest, most severe and most complex outbreak, the World Health Organization (WHO) declared the Ebola outbreak in West Africa as a Public Health Emergency of International Concern (PHEIC). Since 2007, the organization has only declared such emergencies two other times: for the 2009 swine flu pandemic and for polio in May 2014.

  • EHRs Not Changing Medical Billing Practices – Study Finds

    Julie Clements
    20 Aug 2014 | 12:07 am
    The main objective behind the federal government’s initiative to provide incentives to push hospitals and physicians to use electronic health records (EHR) was to improve efficiency and patient safety thereby reducing total healthcare costs. Inappropriate use of the EHR system has been a strong concern since 2012 with the Departments of Justice and Health and Human Services alerting hospitals about the wrong use of this system. Hospitals that used this system were billing Medicare for a significantly more amount than hospitals using paper records. They were charging higher for a large…

    The Affordable Care Act (ACA) aims to expand the health insurance coverage to millions of Americans through a combination of public programs and private-sector health insurance expansions. A recent report reveals that the new enrollments in Obamacare’s Medicaid expansion and other healthcare programs aimed for the poor people have reached 6.7 million after the implementation of healthcare reforms last year. The new figure that mainly comprises state Medicaid plans (that existed before Obamacare) and the Children’s health insurance plan, showed an enrollment increase by about…

    Knee replacement is an effective orthopedic operative procedure for people with severe knee damage from arthritis or injury. This procedure is proven to relieve pain, correct leg deformity, and helps people quickly resume normal activities. According to the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality, more than 600,000 knee replacements are performed each year in the United States. The study, published in the June issue of Journal of Bone and Joint Surgery, found that total knee replacements more than tripled between 1993 and 2009.

    Electronic health record (EHR) adoption rate continues to rise in the United States with many hospitals and physician practices progressing strongly towards meaningful use and the implementation of this system. Even with the growing rates of implementation, clinician dissatisfaction remains a prominent issue. As per Physician Practice 2014 Technology survey, EHR implementation continues to be the most critical technology issue for physician practices. Reports suggest that about 17% of practices reveal that adoption and implementation of this system is a critical issue, about 16% say it lacks…

    I’ve recently had the pleasure of working with our Nomad team including the product manager, Troy Martin, and other Nomad experts on our recently released Nomad Upgrade Guide. Our Nomad documentation has always been very complete but one topic we wanted to address even more thoroughly was upgrades and related scenarios.

As the product manager for Nomad I would love to guarantee they always are, but there are the occasional exceptions so I’d rather advise you to do a bit of due diligence. To aid that process I’m pleased to announce the availability of a comprehensive new technical whitepaper, our “Nomad Upgrades Guide”, available here: Nomad Upgrades Guide – 1E Resource Center I’ve worked with my fellow product manager, Paul Thomsen, and a broad team of…

  • The Dark Side of SQL Server… When Good Queries Go Bad

    Andrew Mayo
    15 Aug 2014 | 5:10 am
    It was said somewhere in Lord of the Rings that Wizards ‘are subtle and quick to anger,’ and substituting ‘SQL Server’ in this phrase proves to be also true. Over the last couple of years I have had a number of issues with SQL Server which specifically involve self-referencing updates. A self-referencing update uses the destination table in the query associated with the update. These problems occasionally cause catastrophic, unpredictable degradation in query performance which has caused CM syncs to suddenly degrade and in some cases never complete. It is becoming evident that…

    9 years ago today, on 17th August 2005, I was just one of seventeen brave (or foolhardy) people who announced that they were leaving the very successful Mambo project and starting out on their own. It was a snap decision and truth be told if we had stopped to think about how much work lay ahead of us in the coming months I suspect we might not have been in such a rush. We were greatly helped at the time by Eben Moglen of the Software Freedom Law Centre and I believe we were their first "clients".

There are some excellent books and some truly awful books but without exception they are generic titles targeted as the site builder or site programmer.

When you went to backup your WordPress, phpBB, PrestaShop or other php/sql web site were you jealous? Did you sit there wondering why it was so much harder to backup your WordPress web site? Have you struggled…

    The 2013 ACC kicked off on Tuesday morning with an acknowledgement by Philippine Long Distance Telecommunications (PLDT) CEO Napolean L. Nazareno that “we’re going through a profound and painful transformation to digital technologies.”  He continued to explain that in addition to making the move to a digital corporate culture and architecture that for traditional telcos to succeed they will need to “master new skills, including new partnership skills.” That direction drives a line straight down the middle of attendees at the conference.  Surprisingly, many companies attending and…
  • What Value Can I Expect from Cloud Computing Training?

    30 Aug 2013 | 6:31 pm
    Normally, when we think of technical-related training, images of rooms loaded with switches, routers, and servers might come to mind.    Cloud computing is different.  In reality, cloud computing is not a technology, but rather a framework employing a variety of technologies – most notably virtualization, to solve business problems or enable opportunities. From our own practice, the majority of cloud training students represent non-technical careers and positions. Our training does follow the CompTIA Cloud Essentials course criterion, and is not a technical course, so the non-technical…

The business world is changing.  With cloud computing potentially eliminating the need for some current IT roles, such as physical server huggers…, information technology professionals, or more appropriately information and communications technology (ICT) professionals, need to rethink their roles within organizations.

  • How valuable is search engine optimisation for businesses?

    19 Aug 2014 | 7:37 am
    All businesses need to appear near, or at the top, of search engine results lists. This is the first place that consumers turn when looking for any kind of product or service, and they will rarely click past the first few results. You can appear at the top of these lists with the help of internet marketing agencies. The internet has completely transformed the way in which consumers shop for products and services. They no longer walk to the high street or look in the book for local services, they now go online. You can find all kinds of products and services online, and this method brings…

    John Myers

    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…

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.

IBM’s introduction of the Bluemix Platform as a Service (PaaS) to the marketplace earlier this year builds on the existing capabilities of Jazz (/ introduced in 2008. While Jazz addresses the requirements and design stages of the application lifecycle, Bluemix extends IBM’s cloud-based capabilities to development, testing, and production as well.

    The Lumia 520 is going to go down as the phone that drove Windows Phone in emerging markets and for those who want a budget phone. Therefore, it should be no surprise to see Microsoft pick up Nokia's reins with the Lumia 530, which is just now launching globally. I managed to get my hands on a brand new bright green Lumia 530 and in the following video, I talk about the features, specs and my first impressions. As it turns out, it very much reminds me of the Lumia 620 in terms of design, and the OS is surprisingly zippy considering the price range for this phone.

  • How to use custom fonts in Android apps (and not get fat)

    Daniel Dekański
    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…

Have you ever wondered if such a model could be created for a software design process? I did and here are my thoughts on it. Obviously a detailed implementation cannot be touched by such a “bird’s eye architecture-cheat-sheet” but I think a general description with some design tips can be achieved.

We’ve all been there before; just sat down to dinner when the phone rings and who’s on the other end? “Mr Nobody,” some poor college drop-out asking us to “Conduct a quick survey,” or a man with a strong foreign accent telling us there’s something wrong with our computers that only his (obviously malicious) software can cure. It might be a classic “First World Problem,” but that doesn’t make it any less infuriating.So, you might be asking, is there anything I can do to stop…

    When ride-sharing company Lyft announced its new service Lyft Line — which, for those unaware, lets people headed in the same direction share the cost of a ride together — the first thing I thought of was the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC). Weird, I know. But CPUC was behind last year’s rule legitimizing for-profit ridesharing companies like Lyft, Sidecar, and Uber for legal operation within the state. Without that action, it’s safe to say an idea like Lyft Line would’ve been a major uphill climb — if it saw the light of day at all. At the announcement of the new…

Of course, over the years as health care professionals, manufacturers & consumers have become more educated, the factors that define “healthy” foods have evolved.

    Social media seems to be impacting nearly every aspect of marketing. It allows brands to interact with consumers in a digital space. Feedback and customer service happen in real time. Now, it seems social media may be simplifying the ecommerce channel, giving consumers the ability to make purchases directly in the ads and posts for products they see in their feeds. Both Facebook and Twitter have now begun testing “buy now” buttons to their sites and apps.

    We all remember Flappy Bird - that notoriously difficult bird game. It’s creator, Vietnamese developer Dong Nguyen, recently released a new game called Swing Copters – and, surprise surprise, its even more difficult. Swing Copters is a free game that follows an 8-bit styling similar to Flappy Bird. In the game, you control a small character wearing a helicopter helmet. While he continuously fly upward, tapping on the screen will make him go the opposite direction to avoid swinging hammers. It took me awhile to figure out how it works, and when I finally realized how to control…

  • Twitter Offers Analytics for Organic Tweets

    Dave Paul
    18 Aug 2014 | 11:45 am
    Twitter is one of those things you’re “supposed” to do. It’s a way to reach your audience and promote your brand, essentially for free. But how much are you actually reaching people? Do your tweets get read, do your links get clicked, and would paying to promote tweets be a great marketing spend or a total waste of cash? Until recently, those are questions most business owners couldn’t answer. That’s because “organic” tweets—the ones you send out every day, without paying anything—had no analytics support. No data. No way to see what was working. Twitter changed that a…

Anyone can nominate themselves or their friends on Yelp's site. Nominations are sent to the San Francisco-based Elite Council, a mysterious group that's responsible for making…

    Your home could be smarter, and it needn’t break the bank. Here are six ways to add a little ambient intelligence to your daily routine. Most of the smart home projects I’ve listed here are based on lighting or home entertainment – the proliferation of cheap LEDs makes this affordable, and home entertainment devices almost always have an infrared control with which you can easily (and safely) interface. Unfortunately, a lot of other home appliances are just impractical to upgrade with “smart” features – they have physical switches and dials. Even the new…
  • HitchBOT Asked Humans For Help, So They Drove Her Across Canada

    HitchBOT – housed in a bucket and equipped mainly with the ability to ask nicely for a ride – managed to hitch-hike 6000 kilometers, across Canada, in under a month. Not bad, considering she doesn’t have any way to move without help from humans. This little robot brings to mind a lot of big ideas. Most humans think of technology as something that helps them, yet here is a robot asking for help. Hitchhiking has almost disappeared from North America because of safety concerns, yet here’s a traveler people happily pick up. Science fiction taught Westerners to fear robots for...Read the…

  • Troubleshoot Keyboard and Mouse Not Working in Windows

    Aseem Kishore
    19 Aug 2014 | 2:05 pm
    One of the USB ports on my desktop computer stopped working after I had plugged in a USB device and removed it without ejecting. I’ve done it a million times, but it looked like my luck finally ran out. The port seemed fine in Device Manager because there were no error or warning icons. So after doing a bit of reading online, I came across a Microsoft article that told me I should go ahead and uninstall the USB Host Controllers under USB Serial Bus Controllers in Device Manager. After that, you just have to restart your computer and Windows should find the hardware again and install it.
  • How to Check if Your VPN Connection is Actually Encrypted

    Aseem Kishore
    24 Apr 2014 | 11:52 pm
    I recently subscribed to a VPN service for my personal use so that my Internet connection from home is completely encrypted. With all the spying and hacking revelations going on these days, I don’t mind having a little bit of extra security on my side just in case. Once I had installed the software on computer and connected to the VPN, it seemed to be working fine as far as I could tell. However, being a techie person myself, I couldn’t just accept that everything was working without actually verifying that the encryption was enabled. So even though I hadn’t played around…

    Today’s article is a quick tip on how to troubleshoot problems in Windows 8.1, which you will most definitely run into using Microsoft’s shiny new OS. However, most problems don’t require booting into safe mode or following a 10 step guide to fixing WiFi problems. Microsoft has also gotten smarter and included a lot of tools and help guides in the OS itself to diagnose and fix problems. I’ve found that teaching my clients how to use these built-in tools saves me a lot of time because they are able to fix problems in Windows 8.1 themselves. In this article, I’m…

    When I first got up new iPhone 5S (thanks to my parents), I instantly went to the app store and starting downloading apps! Having a smartphone and not using apps is like having a computer and only using it to browse the Internet. If you have an iPhone, you’re also lucky because the Apple app store is still better than the Android app store in terms of number of apps and quality of apps, in my opinion. So what are the best free apps to download for your new iPhone right away? Well, there are a bunch! Obviously, everyone will have their preferences, so I’ll try to keep this list…

    Just about everybody who has a laptop has probably connected to several different wireless networks over the course of time. I tend to travel a lot and take my laptop with me everywhere I go, so I literally have over a hundred wireless networks stored on my Mac. This is great because I can easily connect to those wireless networks whenever I’m in range again, even if it’s 6 months later. However, there are times when I need to know the password for the Wifi network, usually because I have to connect another device like my iPhone or iPad to the network. There is no way I ever…

    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…

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.

  • How to Create Advanced Firewall Rules Using Windows Firewall

    Firewall is an important and necessary tool to protect us from the unsecure Internet. Most of the modern OSes come with a built-in firewall, but the problem is that few people know of its existence and only a few know how to configure it.Windows is no different. By default, it comes with a decent built-in firewall which is capable of controlling all the incoming and outgoing traffic. This built-in Windows firewall is a bit clunky with a not-so-friendly user interface and complex rules, though it does gives you plenty of control on overall rules like blocking, restricting, whitelisting, etc.

  • How much do we really know about privacy on Facebook?

    Michael Cowling, Senior Lecturer &amp; Discipline Leader, Mobile Computing &amp; Applications at Central Queensland University
    21 Aug 2014 | 9:22 pm
    Facebook's Messenger sparked the latest outrage over privacy - but should people be concerned?Flickr/Karlis Dambrans, CC BYThe recent furore about the Facebook Messenger app has unearthed an interesting question: how far are we willing to allow our privacy to be pushed for our social connections? In the case of the Facebook Messenger app, the answer appears to be: “Not as far as Facebook thinks.” For those who are not yet on Facebook (yes, there are some), the social media giant has been asking all users who want to continue sending messages to their Facebook friends on their mobile…

    The majority of edits to Wikipedia are done by volunteers.Flickr/mikeedesign, CC BYWhether you trust it or ignore it, Wikipedia is one of the most popular websites in the world and accessed by millions of people every day.

Paid contributors can now make changes to Wikipedia articles so long as they clearly disclose their affiliations and potential conflicts of…
  • Mars, Saturn and the claws of Scorpius

    Tanya Hill, Honorary Fellow of the University of Melbourne and Senior Curator (Astronomy) at Museum Victoria
    20 Aug 2014 | 9:28 pm
    Across Australia, catch Mars and Saturn around 8pm local time. Museum Victoria/Stellarium Look up at the night sky this week and you’ll find Mars and Saturn together in the west. Mars stands out with its reddish colouring and you might just be able to detect a faint yellow tinge to Saturn. The two planets have been slowly drifting towards each other and now Mars makes its dash to move past Saturn. Towards the north is Scorpius, a dominant feature of our winter sky and an easy constellation to recognise with its hook-shaped tail and bright red supergiant Antares. Claws of justice In ancient…
  • Life boils down to five 'rules' ... or so says the Madingley Model

    James Smith, Research Fellow in Fisheries at UNSW Australia
    20 Aug 2014 | 9:19 pm
    Every living organism needs the same five basic processes – and we can now model ecosystems on them.erban/Flickr, CC BY-NC-NDIt may sound overly simple, but just five processes can define us as animals: eating, metabolism, reproduction, dispersal and death. They might not seem like much, but, thanks to a mathematical model from scientists at Microsoft Research, we know that these five processes are the key to all ecosystems. It’s called the Madingley Model, and is the first time scientists have simulated ecosystems across the globe using a single set of biological rules. When these rules…

  • The story-driven Superhero Workout app makes getting fit super-fun

    Wayne Williams
    22 Aug 2014 | 12:21 pm
    There are hundreds of fitness apps available for iOS and Android and, I suspect, like fitness equipment, many people buy them with the best of intentions, but then never use them. I’m a prime example. Although I use running apps like Zombies, Run! and Runtastic on a regular basis, most of the workout apps I own see far less action (the one exception being Runtastic PushUps which I use daily). However, Six to Start -- the creator of story-driven apps like Zombies, Run! and The Walk -- has come up with a workout app that people will actually want to use. Superhero Workout uses camera-based…
  • Samsung Galaxy S5 takes the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge, but is it good or bad?

    Alan Buckingham
    22 Aug 2014 | 11:31 am
    The Ice Bucket Challenge has taken off on social media in the past week or so. The campaign is designed to fuel awareness of ALS, or Lou Gehrig's disease -- a problem that has famously, and sadly, afflicted Stephen Hawking, though many others are just as unfortunate. It's certainly a worthwhile cause, and something everyone should be aware of and fund, if they can spare a few dollars. But what if a major company attempted to hijack the pledge drive for the benefit of its product? It's really hard to say if that is what Samsung has done, but it certainly seems to be that way. I'm of two…

SaaS Cloud application services or software-as-a-service (SaaS) -- represent the largest cloud market and are still growing quickly.

    22 Aug 2014 | 9:46 am
    When it comes to building a computer, there are many routes to take. Of course, if you are wealthy, you can throw money at your build and achieve something wonderful. However, for many of us average folks, money can sometimes be tight. If you are on a budget, you can aim for either cheap or inexpensive; there is a difference. You see, cheap components are of low quality, but inexpensive can mean high quality at a value. For my last few major desktop builds, I have trusted G.SKILL exclusively. My brand loyalty is due to past performance; the manufacturer's memory has proven to be reliable and…
  • Rebel NSA and GCHQ agents are actually helping make Tor more secure

    Mark Wilson
    22 Aug 2014 | 8:20 am
    For anyone looking to stay anonymous online, Tor seems like an obvious option. At the same time, it could lull users into a false sense of security -- after all, this is a network that was, at least in the past, funded by the military and US government -- and conspiracy theories abound that Tor is nothing more than a honey trap to catch the kind of people who have a need for anonymity because of their nefarious activities. The network has evolved over the years and now agencies such as the NSA in the US and GCHQ in the UK are actively seeking out vulnerabilities so they can crack the network.

  • PRO System for Power generation from the meeting of river water and seawater.

    22 Aug 2014 | 10:03 am
    Pressure Retarded Osmosis (PRO) is an emerging method of power generation. It can be used for producing renewable energy from two streams of a different salinity. i-e It can be implemented at places where the river meets the sea.

A team at MIT has now developed a model to evaluate the performance and optimal…

  • My Monkey Mind

    Joe Kinsella
    16 Aug 2014 | 9:16 am
    The founder & CTO of Sonian, Greg Arnette, recently suggested I read 10% Happier, the personal journey of an ABC correspondent who discovered meditation as a way to calm his “monkey mind.” I’d never heard of monkey mind before, which is a Buddhist term that means "unsettled; restless; capricious; whimsical; fanciful; inconstant; confused; indecisive; uncontrollable". But after reading the book and attempting my first almost laughable meditation session, I self-diagnosed myself with a serious case of chronic monkey mind. It’s amazing I never noticed it before, but I sometimes have…
  • 6 Things You Might Not Know About Amazon Reserved Instances

    Joe Kinsella
    13 Aug 2014 | 5:21 am
    Reserved instances allow you to make a one-time payment to Amazon in return for a discount on your compute costs. The rationale for reserved pricing is simple: by getting customers to commit to the usage of specific infrastructure, Amazon can better manage their capacity, and therefore pass these savings on to their customers. By now we are all likely well aware of the various options for reserved instances, including types (Heavy, Medium, Light) and terms (1 and 3 year). But here are 6 thing you may not know about reserved instances. 1 - The Dual Benefits Reserved instances provide two…
  • CloudFront: A Low Cost Alternative To Premium CDNs

    Joe Kinsella
    8 Aug 2014 | 1:25 pm
    I've been noticing a steady uptick in the interest in Amazon CloudFront recently, driven by what appears to be a commoditization in the CDN market. This market shift is opening up an opportunity for less feature rich / more cost effective offerings to compete with the premium services such as Akamai. One of the challenges in adopting CloudFront as your CDN is that it is not a premium service. It lacks many of the features and tools users have come to expect from more sophisticated offerings. But in return it has one compelling advantage: it is cheap. So for those of you looking to gain the…
  • Sprint Planning at CloudHealth

    Joe Kinsella
    1 Aug 2014 | 9:13 am
    While sprint planning is an important activity for any software development organization, it takes on a new level of criticality in a startup. A good sprint planning process can improve the likelihood for success of a young company; a bad one can directly contribute to its failure. So I’m always curious to hear how others run their sprint planning, in part to pilfer new ideas, but also since it provides incredible insight into how other organizations work (note: nothing reveals the good, bad and ugly of an organization faster than attending a sprint planning meeting). So I thought I’d…
  • Random Things I Learned Building Software

    Joe Kinsella
    28 Jul 2014 | 5:19 am
    I remember the moment I realized I wanted to spend the rest of my career building software. I was at my first job post-college, in my early twenties, and in the office at 9 PM writing code. The company I had joined was on the verge of spiraling out of control, I was working yet another 70+ hour week, and my team was under intense pressure for what seemed like an impossible deadline. But all I could remember thinking is: "I can't believe I'm getting paid to do this job!" In over 20 years, that passion for building software has never left me. I've performed almost every role in a software…

    Telecommunications giant Huawei is making another push to grab some of the smartphone market share outside of China with the Ascend P7, but how does the flagship 4G smartphone compare to the leading smartphones on the market today? Design Huawei describes the phone as lighter and thinner than the competition, and they may well be right with the P7 just 6.5mm thick (139.8 x 68.8 x 6.5 mm) and weighing in at 124g. That makes it slimmer than the iPhone 5S, Samsung Galaxy S5 and Sony Xperia Z2, and lighter than its Android competitors as well. However, beyond just its size there is little in…

Premium support is not a new idea, but for a company where forums are filled with complaints of people struggling with slow speeds or getting any connection at all, it looks very much like giving two fingers to their customers. People put up with poor support (and paying for it) from companies such as Ryan Air because they are offering budget basement prices – you get what you pay for. However, EE is not marketing itself as the…
