    The first fully electric London doubledecker is set to enter service in October. Until now the battery technology has rendered electric double deckers too heavy and expensive. But TfL(Transport for London) believes the latest development will rapidly improve emissions and air quality.as transport authorities try to reduce the capital’s air pollution levels. Built in China, the new all electric double decker will  run on route 16, which operates between Cricklewood, north-west London, and Victoria station. In addition, the 312 route from Norwood to South Croydon, will become the…

    During a Reddit AMA earlier this week, Elon Musk said he hopes to announce his Mars transport system plans. As you’d expect, I’m incredibly excited about this. We are still obviously a long ways away from the first manned mission to Mars, but there is finally substantive work being done to get us there. Of course, NASA announced late last year that the Orion space capsule is a part of their plan toward a manned mission to Mars, which is terribly exciting. Humans conducting experiments on Mars and exploring the planet is something I hope to see before I die. But Musk and SpaceX, I…

    It doesn’t seem you can go a day without some new wearable asking for money on crowdfunding websites like Kickstarter or Indiegogo. But here’s one that promises to be more useful than most – in fact so useful it might actually save your life one day. Called Kingii, it’s a device that claims to help prevent drowning. Although the number of deaths from drowning in the UK is falling (just under 400 last year according to the latest stats from Rospa), worldwide drowning still kills 372,000 according to the World Health Organisation. And obviously during the summer time…

    Google is reportedly jumping into the ride-sharing business. According to Haaretzthe search giant is launching a pilot carpooling service in three Israeli cities on top of Waze, its popular driving directions app. The service, RideWith, allows passengers to join fellow residents on their commutes. Google is expected to take a small 15% fee. Google is careful not to bill it as a competitor to Uber, which has run afoul of protesters in places like France and South Africa, not to mention major American cities. Unlike Uber, Google limits trips to two per day, so drivers don't make a living…

  • Google’s Project Jacquard Aims To Make "Activewear" A Reality

    Most wearable devices are passive. They read data, then spit it back out at you with a buzz on your wrist, or—if they’re really good—via an app that can actually interpret what that data means. But aside from a few simple controls for music or answering a connected phone, wearables have yet to truly make the leap from absorbing data to providing meaningful ways for users to control the world around them.That problem is especially pronounced for wearables made of fabric rather than plastic, says Nick Langston, head of the Wearables Lab at TE Connectivity. “Today, what’s been going on…

  • Samsung Launches New 2TB SSD 850 EVO And 850 PRO Models

    7 Jul 2015 | 5:00 am
    Due to what Samsung is citing as a surge in demand for larger capacity SSDs, they have now launched two new models offering up to two terabytes of storage each. In order to drive the extra capacity, they have also launched a new SSD controller in the MHX controller. Our resident SSD expert Kristian expects the MHX to be similar in design to the MEX controller, but with additional DRAM to track the extra blocks. The 2TB 850 EVO leverages the same 32-layer 128 Gbit TLC V-NAND that we have already seen in the smaller capacity 850 EVO products, but the 850 PRO will use a new 128 Gbit 2-bit MLC…

    What’s in a name, you may ask yourself.

So it was for Microsoft’s Zune brand, which consisted of not only the Zune media players but also PC software and services. The Zune name was killed off and replaced with one of the stronger brands for Microsoft on the consumer side, with it being replaced with Xbox Music and Xbox Video a couple of…

Though we don’t typically publish financial projections, the long and short of it is that AMD is looking to brace investors for a worse than expected Q2, after an already difficult Q1. Soft APU sales are being blamed for dragging down both revenue and gross margins, with AMD now expecting Q2 revenue to be down 8% sequentially, or around $950M, while the non-GAAP gross margin will be just 28%.

    One of the big promises of IoT is supposed to be insight. The idea is that, by collecting all kinds of data from a myriad of connected sensors, both businesses and consumers will be able to learn more about the systems, devices, and environments around them. The key component to bridge the gap between data and insight is, of course, analytics. Big data analytics has been a major buzzword in the IT world for the last five years or more, and it’s the key to generating the sort of knowledge we’re all hoping IoT can enable.

But we do not realize that unless and until we minimize consumption, we can not really save our environment. For example, look at the world consumption; Today’s products are manufactured, used and disposed of at a higher rate than the earth can accommodate in a less harmful way. Therefore it is important that we move to green alternatives now, otherwise, will be covered by pollutants and toxins produced in the normal course of…
  • Most Efficient Solar Panels

    22 Jun 2015 | 5:30 am
    In trying to create the most efficient solar panels, pay special attention to the portion of the backsheet of the panels. A backsheet layer is the solar panel which solar cells are arranged. The other side of this backsheet, more precisely in the upper middle area is the junction box. A backsheet are often made of vinyl fluoride or PVF which is similar to PVC, or polyvinyl chloride, the material used in pipes and water pipes. P.V.F. It is commonly used in aircraft interiors and vehicles. DuPont, the US chemical company founded in 1802, created in the 1940s, polyvinyl fluoride polymer (PVF).

A photovoltaic (or PV System) is an installation of solar panels that can be used to provide electricity and if you generate more energy than it needs, can be fed back to the network. Domestic photovoltaic systems have two main options installations. Existing properties tend to opt for a mounting system “roof”, where the panels are sitting slightly above the roof surface. This causes the least disruption of the structure and the tiling of existing coverage. The alternative is a system of “roof” where the panels replace…

  • Name Your Price On Shopping App Compelation

    Josh Constine
    7 Jul 2015 | 8:15 am
     Browse products. Name your price. If the merchant accepts your bid, you automatically buy it. This is how Compelation is flipping the concept of ecommerce and giving consumers the power. Normally, a merchant sets a sale price, and a buyer simply accepts or rejects it. That’s fast, but leads to tons of missed opportunities and a fundamental lack of transparency. Compelation wants to make… Read More

    In a brutal market where the difference between profit and loss is just three-tenths of a percentage point, anything less than continuous innovation can put a business in danger, says John Jeremiah, technology evangelist and team lead for HP Software. No business is immune from rapidly changing conditions. Fast wireless and faster fiber ensure that enterprising companies can connect with customers and prospects in the time it takes to load a web page or respond to a tweet. Is your IT infrastructure prepared to engage at that speed? Don't answer too quickly! As Jeremiah puts it,…

Oh, and did we mention there was lip-syncing? Basically, we should all endeavor to be like this kid during the summer, and…

    The iPhone 6 Plus is a huge phone. It pays off in the 5.5-inch screen and the battery that seems to never die, but its large proportions may also cause some physical strain. San Antonio Spurs power forward Matt Bonner says he believes the size of his iPhone 6 Plus contributed to his tennis elbow injury during the 2014-2015 NBA season, he told the Concord Monitor.

The site now lets you detach a video from the News Feed and move it anywhere within the browser window, so you can scroll Facebook while watching. The option is accessible via an icon in the lower-right hand portion of a video (accessible on mouse-over while the video plays). When you click the icon, the video becomes movable — though you can't pull it out of the browser window. The feature only works on desktop for the time being, not on…

    Tim Cushing

    Well, we finally received some surveillance reform with the passage of the USA Freedom Act, which, even with its built-in six-month waiting period is still more surveillance reform than we've seen in the past thirty years. So, of course, the intelligence "community" is seeking to counterbalance its "losses" with gains from the private sector. Self-spying will have to replace government spying, if we're expected to run a secure nation. Social media sites such as Twitter and YouTube would be required to report videos and other content posted by suspected terrorists to federal authorities under…

    A large group of state Attorney Generals has now stepped into the legal fight between Mississippi Attorney General Jim Hood and Google. As we've explained a bunch, Hood went after Google with an investigation and detailed subpoena that was funded and written by the MPAA itself. In response to this, a federal court has already called out Hood's actions, noting that there was "significant evidence of bad faith" on the part of Hood as he attempted to unconstitutionally hold Google responsible for anything bad that its search engine found on the internet.

  • Newegg Asks Appeals Court For Help After Waiting Nearly Two Years For East Texas Judge To Actually Rule In Patent Case

    Mike Masnick

    You may recall that back in November of 2013, we wrote about an absolutely insane ruling by a federal jury in East Texas, arguing that e-commerce vendor Newegg infringed on an absolutely laughable patent, held by a patent troll named TQP, which claimed to cover encryption. Newegg immediately promised to appeal the ruling -- so you may be wondering where that appeal is right now. So is Newegg. Yesterday, the company filed a petition for a Writ of Mandamus basically asking the appeals court to tell the district court to do its damn job and issue a final ruling (either on behalf of Newegg, or…

As The Times of India explained a few years back, when the scheme was first announced: Aadhaar is a 12-digit unique number which will be issued by the Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) to all residents of the country. It's a step towards putting India in the club of more than 50 countries around the world that have some form of national identity cards. These include most of continental…

    Pre-race game face. The race is run along the beach in Ventura I ran my first 10k race this past weekend at the Fathers Day 5k/10k race in Ventura, CA on Sunday, June 14, 2015. Last year I ran the 5k and had a great day with a 5k PR. I entered this race pretty much at the last minute. The race was on my radar but I’ve been working on re-gearing my workouts and training and the miles have been rolling in an inconsistent way with very short miles on weekdays and only medium long runs on weekends. My approach for the race was to go in and hit a pace that was just past uncomfortable while…

It was between the Born To Run 50k (30 miler) and the XTERRA Malibu Creek 22k which I had run the year before. The BTR race looked like fun but I finally decided to focus on a course I’ve already run and to shoot for a PR on the XTERRA race.

It was a tough race and thoughts and emotions are still swirling but wanted to put things down in writing although I’m sure my thoughts and judgments will change over the next few days and weeks. The Leona Divide 50k was part of long term plan to attempt and finish my first ultra this year. In December I started training for my first attempt, the Sean O’Brien 50k but then I figured I should attempt a trail marathon so I switched…

The day before the race I thought I could pull it off even though I had massive body aches and felt like death warmed over. I picked up my bib and shirt but by the time I got home I was a wreck and had to DNS the race. This year I went back to the Bandit a week after running the Sean O’ Brien Marathon but went to volunteer.

After some training I figured it made more sense to do a trail marathon first so with that I changed my registration from the Sean O’Brien 50K to the Marathon race on February 7, 2015. If you’re not familiar with the Sean O’Brien races, this is the second year for the races, held at Malibu Creek State Park in Agoura Hills. Last year runners could sign up for the Marathon, 50k or the 50 miler. The 50 miler turned into a playground for elite runners seeking to qualify for a coveted Western States…

A research report published by the Massachusetts Institute of Technology challenges claims from US and British authorities that such access is the policy response needed to fight crime and terrorism. Providing this kind of access "will open doors through which criminals and malicious nation-states can attack the very individuals law enforcement seeks to defend," said the report by 13 scientists.

  • LG Hooks Up The G4 To A Drone For Latest Promo

    Adnan Farooqui
    7 Jul 2015 | 8:33 am
    It has only been a couple of months since LG released the G4, it’s 2015 flagship, and the company wants to remind you that it’s still in the running for your hard earned money. The handset is up against the likes of Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge so it’s not all smooth sailing for the G4, but the handset did find plenty of clear skies when LG hooked it up to a drone to show off the handset’s camera and optical image stabilization feature in a new promo.LG has traditionally focused on camera much more than its rivals which is why many believe that its flagships tend to…

  • Why attempt home automation yourself when you can have a pro do it for you? (Post sponsored by URC)

    Joe Paone
    1 Jul 2015 | 6:47 am
    We know the standard answer to the question in the headline: Because it’s cheaper. But is it really? Now, if you’re an endless tinkerer and do-it-yourselfer, more power to you. If you like to fix your own plumbing and electrical, do your own landscaping, install your own cabinetry, pave your own driveway, or do your own taxes, we respect and appreciate that. Heck, you can buy a titanium replacement hip online if you’d like to install one yourself. The question is, should you? While DIYing can seem to sometimes save money up front and be a satisfying endeavor, the fact remains that…
  • TechnologyTell Review: Phiaton MS 100 BA earphones

    Stanley Goodner
    30 Jun 2015 | 2:23 pm
    When it comes to wearable personal audio, I tend to prefer on- and over-ear headphones. Not so much earphones, even though I’ve experienced some really great products for sound and/or features. For me, in-ear devices are all about the comfort and how well they can hold up to my binge-listening on a daily basis. If it’s not comfortable, you’re not very likely to wear it all the time, right? Now I’m a fan of Phiaton’s products for both looks and performance. But nothing prepared me for the level of comfort with one of their latest earphones. Design & Connectivity At first glance,…

    In 1998, famed and revered economist Paul Krugman penned the following words: “By 2005 or so, it will become clear that the Internet’s impact on the economy has been no greater than the fax machine’s.” As a standalone quote, it’s somewhat out of context; Krugman was asked to write a piece from the perspective of someone writing in 2098. Still, Krugman predicted that folks in the future might not think too much—if anything—of the Internet. Most people would probably agree he was completely wrong on this particular account. Fast-forward to 2015, and it’s quite apparent that the…

  • GoPro Whittles Down Hero4 Action Cam

    John P. Mello Jr.
    6 Jul 2015 | 3:34 pm
    GoPro's latest action cam features something the company's fans haven't seen for eight years: a product redesign. The company on Monday announced the Hero4 Session, a 1-inch cube video camera that weighs just 2.6 ounces -- less than half the heft of an iPhone. Unlike previous GoPro models, you won't need a case to protect it from getting wet. It's designed to withstand a soaking in up to 10 meters of water. However, while the camera is light in weight, it's also light on features -- and a heavy on price.

A total of $7 million will be awarded to fund the research teams for up to three years, with many of the projects beginning in September. Another $4 million is available to support research grants for areas that emerge as most promising. The teams will focus on the common goal of keeping artificial intelligence beneficial to humanity.
  • Rick Perry and the Texas vs. California Tech War

    A couple of weeks ago, I was waiting to do a CNBC slot on the Apple Watch in Asia -- the entire smartwatch class is having a lot of issues -- and I ran into Rick Perry, former governor of Texas, as he was coming out of the studio I was about to enter. For some reason, I thought he was going to be a typical entitled stuck-up jerk, like a lot of folks in his position are, but he wasn't. We started chatting about technology and jobs, and how he'd been focused as governor on getting tech companies to move to Texas from California.
  • Microsoft Anchors Minecraft Strategy to Education

    5 Jul 2015 | 5:00 am
    Microsoft wants to find ways to assist the pioneering teachers who have taught pupils through the sandbox construction game Minecraft. The company earlier this week launched its Minecraft in Education initiative to turn the pioneers into pillars. There was puzzlement over Microsoft's end game last September, when it purchased Mojang, the studio behind the multiplatform hit, in a $2.5 billion bet. Many thought Minecraft was at or near its peak. It turns out Microsoft has some novel plans for the game.

    The 102nd running of the longest sporting event in the world, the Tour de France, begins Saturday. The race first took place in 1903, and it has continued every year since, except during WWI and WWII. In the 112 years since that first race, the technology utilized by the riders has changed dramatically. Today, the racers ride bikes with frames made of advanced carbon fiber. They have a total of 22 gears to help climb mountains and sprint to the finish line, and they can communicate with their team managers over race radios.

    Bill Brenner
    15 Jun 2015 | 5:05 am
    Like many of you, I was shocked last week to hear that Stephen “Jamie” Toulouse (@Stepto) had fallen into a deep coma. Family members took to social media to say that his prognosis wasn’t looking good; that he wasn’t expected to survive. But thanks to excellent medical care, prayer and what is surely a strong will to live, Stepto — director of hacker success at HackerOne — seems to have made it through the storm. Saturday, his family posted an update saying he was awake and breathing without help from a tube. “Although he is very weak, he has been…

    The plight of One World Labs Founder Chris Roberts has been picked to death on social media this past week. There’s all the trouble he’s in with the FBI for his airplane-hacking claims. There’s the hit to his company, which had to let a lot of good security talent go last week. Some shake their heads in disbelief because he apparently spoke to the FBI about his activities without a lawyer present. Others saw this saga as an example of hackers shooting off their mouths without the scruples to back it up. Me? I’m looking at this and seeing a way forward for Chris…
  • “Equal Respect” at ‪#‎RSAC

    Some folks in the security industry see me as a member of the “Equal Respect” movement against so-called booth babes at conferences. Not exactly. I certainly respect the opinion of people attached to the cause, and good for them, fighting for what they believe in. But for me, this has never been about equal respect among the genders. It’s never been about whether women who work as booth babes are being exploited sexually. For me, it’s been about holding vendors’ feet to the fire and making them work harder to build an exhibit off the strength of the products. To…
  • In the end, @Sidragon1’s Tweet was the problem

    Bill Brenner
    21 Apr 2015 | 6:24 am
    At RSA Conference 2015 here in San Francisco, there’s a lot of discussion about weaknesses to the electrical and wifi systems aboard airplanes. The discussion often turns to the case of hacker Chris Roberts (@Sidragon1 on Twitter). There’s been a lot of strong reaction to news of Roberts being pulled from a plane for jokingly tweeting that he might mess around with the plane’s electronic systems. There’s a lot of overreaction to this story. The TSA and feds certainly overreacted. But those who hold Roberts up as a victim of government oppression are overreacting, too.

  • BBC micro:bit computer – free to every year 7 child in UK from October

    Chris Price

    The BBC has unveiled the micro:bit, a pocket-sized codeable computer (pictured above) with built-in motion detection, compass and Bluetooth technology, which is to be given free to every child in year 7 or equivalent across the UK from October. That’s approximately 1 million units. A collaboration between 29 partners, including Lancaster University,  Barclays, Samsung and The Wellcome Trust, the micro:bit is the BBC’s most ambitious education initiative since the 1980s when the BBC Micro introduced many children, including myself, to computing for the first time.

  • EE unveils the first sub-£50 smart phone, the Rook. That’s over 10 times cheaper than an iPhone 6

    Chris Price
    7 Jul 2015 | 6:42 am
    Remember when smart phones were luxury items that people aspired to maybe own one day. Well those days are well and truly gone and suddenly £500 plus for an iPhone seems ridiculously expensive indeed. OK the £49.99 Rook from EE lacks the sex appeal of an iPhone 6 perhaps. But given it’s less than 10 per cent of the price of an entry level iPhone 6 (£539 SIM free) I’d say it’s pretty darned good value. As you would expect for this sub-£50 price tag, the Rook isn’t exactly stuffed to the gills with fancy features – just a basic 4.0-inch WVGA display with a…

According to the research, commissioned by Carphone Warehouse, 14.5 million selfies are now taken every day in the UK, with 4.3 million being shared via social media. One in four (24%) of those shots is captured at work and a third are digitally enhanced in a bid for , er, ‘self  improvement’ (seems it’s not just celebs and magazines who indulge in a bit of Photoshop).

    When looking at the overall landscape of smartphones in the US, most casual conversation is dominated by talk of Apple’s iPhone and Samsung’s Galaxy S—currently that means the iPhone 6 and the Galaxy S6. The thing is, though, that there are other great phones out there that deserve to be a part of the conversation.

    When Jurassic Park was originally released back when I was a kid, I thought it was one of the best movies I had ever seen (in fact, it probably was, given my young age!) Seeing dinosaurs look so realistic was something you had to see, and the only way to truly experience the scope of the movie and the details in the CGI was to see it in a movie theater. Now, here we are some 22 years later, and fourth movie in the series, Jurassic World, is set to be released in a week-and-a-half.

That’s 3840×2160 pixels, which means it’s hitting you with 4x the resolution of the 1080p (1920x1080 pixels) set you’re likely already used to. Streaming services like Netflix, Amazon Instant Video, and YouTube are already pumping out 4K content, with more to come.

    Kyle Baxter
    7 Jan 2015 | 7:34 pm
    During a Reddit AMA earlier this week, Elon Musk said he hopes to announce his Mars transport system plans. As you’d expect, I’m incredibly excited about this. We are still obviously a long ways away from the first manned mission to Mars, but there is finally substantive work being done to get us there. Of course, NASA announced late last year that the Orion space capsule is a part of their plan toward a manned mission to Mars, which is terribly exciting.

  • Hong Kong’s Challenge to China

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

  • Samsung Q2 earnings lower then expected, probably due to weak GS6 sales

    Ron Mertens
    7 Jul 2015 | 5:45 am
    Up until now analysts estimated that Samsung's GS6 and GS6 Edge have been very successful, but today Samsung announced that Q2 earnings will be lower than expected - and this was probably due to lower than expected smartphone shipments.Samsung already said that they could not keep up with the demand to the GS6 Edge - as more people wanted the curved-OLED variant over the regularly shaped GS6. It seems that this lead to lower than expected GS6 sales. Samsung increased their flexible OLED capacity and will now be able to meet demand - but it may be too late financially as Apple is set to…

  • STT-MRAM MTJ cells can be used to mimick the human brain's synapses

    24 Apr 2015 | 11:17 pm
    Researchers from France's Universite Paris-Sud and the CEA institute say that the probabilistic nature of STT-MRAM devices can be used to create synapses-like neuro system. This can be used to create efficient devices that mimic the human's brain method of operation.MRAM cells (or MTJs) store data using electrons magnetic spin. The technology uses stochastic switching, and so to be sure that a bit is set, you have to applying a current in the MTJ for a long enough time (to increase the probability of the spin changes). In these new experiments, the researchers take advantage of the stochastic…

    Why is it so difficult to pick great startups out of the crowd? I was recently asked this question by the entrepreneurial duo Kraettli Epperson and Eric Morrow.

It’s called TractionTank, and at its core it was designed to be entirely different from any other accelerator. Epperson and Morrow built it as a lean accelerator, narrowing down the field of their focus into one market niche – we’ve actually been seeing a lot of new…

    Church leaders have the great privilege of seeing to the spiritual formation of disciples. This is core to the mission Jesus gave us. One of the aspects of spiritual formation is service. For service, the many members of the Body have diverse gifts and function. Thus the responsibility of pastors and church leaders is connecting need to people’s gifts and vice versa. It is creating space and opportunities for people to discover and exercise their gifts. When leaders fail to create such an environment they stunt the growth of those they lead.

As many of us can affirm, online reading has impacted our reading habits. We’ve become skimmers, fast trackers,…

    7 Jul 2015 | 7:45 am
    The most incredible geek event we've ever attended? That would be the first-ever geek couture fashion show held in July during San Diego Comic-Con 2014. Fandom fashion retailer Her Universe called upon the galaxy's most stylish designers, both professional and amateur, to present their original, handmade creations on the runway. Consider it a preview of what to expect at this year's festival. What we saw was not cosplay. Oh no, these gowns could have belonged on the pages of Vogue or at New York Fashion Week. As one of the designers put it: for those who aren't geeks, the clothing would just…

    7 Jul 2015 | 6:45 am
    If you've been with your significant other for a while, you've probably noticed changes in your communication style over the course of your relationship. Love notes turn into "honey do" lists and sweet nothings become inside jokes - but that doesn't make it any less wonderful. After all, "I miss you" messages are just as meaningful as asking your SO to bring home tacos every once in a while. Whether it's a sign that you're too comfortable with your partner (or perhaps an indication that you're also best friends), there's no denying that conversations between boyfriends and girlfriends are…
  • The Most Spectacular Photo (and GIF!) of Saturn Ever Taken

    Nicole-Nguyen
    7 Jul 2015 | 5:45 am
    iPhone cameras are good - but they aren't as good as this. NASA's Cassini spacecraft captured this view as it approached Saturn in early 2011. The GIF is so beautiful that it bubbled back up to the front page of Reddit recently. In November 2014, the spacecraft caught another spectacular moment, this on Saturn's largest moon, Titan, using a visual and infrared mapping spectrometer. The glowing orange you see here is called a sunglint, also known as a specular reflection, coming off Titan's massive sea Kraken Mare. It was captured during Cassini's flyby on Aug. 21, 2014. The spacecraft has…

    Donald Trump has been making headlines lately for his controversial comments about immigration, but it's not the first time that the presidential hopeful has let his opinions get the best of him. A copy of Trump's 2013 Twitter feud with Modern Family executive producer Danny Zuker has resurfaced and gone viral, reminding people everywhere about just how badly the politician got burned. Oh, snap. There was no way that Trump could emerge victorious from an argument stemmed from his own hypocritical business practices, but his overuse of the words "loser" and "lightweight" is almost painful to…

    There are several challenges for national law enforcement authorities working in the global cyberspace, including the collection of evidence in the cloud, a topic that was the focus of the Council of Europe’s recent Octopus Conference on Cooperation against Cybercrime. One participant, a representative of a law enforcement authority in a small European country, spoke of his difficulty to obtain evidence to investigate local criminal activity when such evidence is in the form of digital communications stored in cloud servers based in the United States. He claimed that the procedure to get…

    Xavier Bettel, Prime Minister, Luxembourg Last week, Microsoft partnered with POLITICO to host the first Annual Cybersecurity Summit. The event comes at a key moment in time. Cybersecurity has never been higher on the political agenda in the EU and globally. And with good reason. This month’s cyber-attack on the U.S. Federal Government personnel office, which led to the information of around 4 million federal workers being stolen, is unfortunately not an isolated incident. This event reminds us once again of the importance of governments and companies ensuring the highest levels of…

    In November of last year, the high-profile hacking of Sony Pictures Entertainment resulted in the mass release of confidential information and the disruption of IT systems. This widely publicized event is one of many where a government has been accused of a damaging cyberattack. Therein lies the discontinuity. While cybercriminals of course act in disregard of the common good, governments are supposed to be different. Governments are supposed to protect the national security, public safety and economic prosperity of their own citizens and, even further, they are supposed to promote…
  • Trust and Transparency: Building Blocks for the Digital Single Market

    What is trust? As defined in the dictionary, it consists of a firm and assured belief in the character, ability, strength, or truth of someone or something. But this hardly does justice to the importance of a principle which underpins every human and social interaction. Trust is fundamental to the functioning of our societies and economies. Even more so in today’s increasingly inter-connected world. Unsurprisingly, building confidence and trust online is a key pillar of the recently unveiled Digital Single Market strategy, an ambitious plan which aims to help Europe reap the benefits of…

    28 Jun 2015 | 2:14 pm
    I thought I very well might need a new iPhone after spending this past week in Delaware at the crazy Firefly music festival during which we had to be evacuated one night because of a tornado warning. But everything turned out well, my iPhone 5 is intact, and now I can take my time awaiting iPhone 6S and iPhone 7 rumors to morph into reality. No more ugly antenna lines on the iPhone? Speculation swirled over the past week about Apple possibly ditching those homely plastic lines across the back of your iPhone…that you probably never noticed in the first place. But the plastic is practical:…

Yes, as it relates to Apple.And I’m not talking about the standard eye-rolling stuff of corporate dog-and-pony shows such as last week’s Apple Worldwide Developers’ Conference (WWDC) in San Francisco. Nope, here we have Apple enlisting the aid of former SNL comic Bill Hader, who shares a humorous behind-the-scenes peek at what could have been at WWDC… Alas, there were no iPhone 6S or iPhone 7 rumors in there, just a goat and some larger-than-life fingers. But the actual WWDC’s introduction of iOS 9 did spark speculation about the next flagship iPhones.To…

And now, thanks to a Microsoft brainiac's website, I've been sort of vindicated.Apparently, there's a 78% chance that the two are related.The site, TwinsOrNot, uses Microsoft's newish Face Recognition API, which was introduced at Build 2015.

    7 Jul 2015 | 7:07 am
    Why should Apple "break its silence" on Apple Watch sales figures? You and I both know they are probably less than expected. Why? Because Apple isn't bragging about it. When is the last time Apple didn't brag about sales figures when they were great? Exactly. "This quarter marks the first quarter of Watch sales," she said. "After tight supply early on, continued international expansion and recent comments from Apple lead us to believe that supply and demand (have) stabilized. We find it a bit unusual that Apple has not provided an update on sales as typically, Apple provides…

    Well, we finally received some surveillance reform with the passage of the USA Freedom Act, which, even with its built-in six-month waiting period is still more surveillance reform than we've seen in the past thirty years. So, of course, the intelligence "community" is seeking to counterbalance its "losses" with gains from the private sector. Self-spying will have to replace government spying, if we're expected to run a secure nation.

As we've explained a bunch, Hood went after Google with an investigation and detailed subpoena that was funded and written by the MPAA itself. In response to this, a federal court has already called out Hood's actions, noting that there was "significant evidence of bad faith" on the part of Hood as he attempted to unconstitutionally hold Google responsible for anything bad that its search engine found on the internet.

Newegg immediately promised to appeal the ruling -- so you may be wondering where that appeal is right now. So is Newegg. Yesterday, the company filed a petition for a Writ of Mandamus basically asking the appeals court to tell the district court to do its damn job and issue a final ruling (either on behalf of Newegg, or…

    27 Jun 2015 | 12:25 pm
    My entire life, my father’s birthday following mine in the year always made him 30 years older than me. Today, he would have been 72. But he will always only have been as old as 71. Now only 29 years separate me and him at his oldest and year after year that number will decrease until eventually, if I am lucky, I become older than he did.  That’s an odd thing.  Happy Birthday, Dad.  The post 71 appeared first on Sample the Web.

    Not even a week into this new lifestyle choice and I’m loving it. In case you missed my previous post on the topic, I finally decided to ditch cable TV and save close to $1500 a year in the process. It looks like a lot of people are doing this now more than ever. I suspect HBO Now was a tipping point for a lot of people. I know it’s one of the things that got me and Kristin talking about it. Pain Points aka why can’t I pause live TV anymore… Now there are some slight pain points to cutting the cord. The one most noticeable to me has been the lack of DVR capabilities on…

    This week, I finally got sick of paying a premium for ALL THE CHANNELS provided by Time Warner Cable. Our primary DVR/cable box in our main room died a horrible death of infinite reboots on Sunday, and I took it in to the local Time Warner store to swap it out for a new one on Monday. The new one had a different problem that made it unusable. Tuesday I went back to exchange that box. They told me I was in luck, that their brand new amazing box that lets you record 7 channels at once was available… but, then, the support person assisting me couldn’t get the system to actually let…

Instead, these leaders have the ability to convert criticism into boosting agents, which allow them to challenge themselves and make things better.

Is there space for a native-code main-window on desktop like we have on Android? How much time should we spend on this vs. other quality issues? What unanswered questions have we not asked yet?

  • Funny of Die Thinks Old People (in Their 70s) Are a Riot

    Rex Hammock
    28 Jun 2015 | 4:11 pm
    Funny or Die and the music festival Bonnaroo “teamed up” to take four “old people” in their 70s to Bonnaroo so the other 80,000 attendees could see how cute four old people can be when interacting with festival goers and hearing new-fangled music. Old People At Bonnaroo from Funny Or Die   In addition to being blatantly ageist bigotry, the premise seems to fall apart when you consider that Funny or Die’s criteria for being an “old person” is being born before 1946. By that definition, here are some other cute old people they could have…

    The current Hammock Idea Email uses several analogies that remind us of something we should all know by now, but keep trying to convince ourselves isn’t true: that “tools” are only as good as the people who use them. Don’t just “get” tools. Learn how to use them. What “desktop publishing” was to the 1990s, “content marketing” or “social media marketing” can be to today. As with the desktop publishing myth, a company can purchase all of the software and mine all the data, only to discover that it is the talent, experience, creativity,…

    By birth, choice and the grace of God, I am a Southerner. I grew up in Alabama and have spent most of my life in Tennessee. In other words, I’ve lived all my life way down yonder in the land of cotton. My love of the South is about home, family and place. It’s about language and literature. It’s about football. It’s about the creativity and cadence found in the way people paint pictures when they recount even the simplest of stories. It’s about food and the aroma of the places where food is prepared. It’s about music. It’s about so many of the people I love. It’s…
  • Every Post About Leadership on LinkedIn Sounds Just Like This

    Rex Hammock
    16 Jun 2015 | 11:03 am
    Apparently, someone has been telling business executives they need to become a “thought leader” by posting a “thought leadership” essay on their LinkedIn account. They apparently are confused by the challenge, thinking they are supposed to write about leadership. Being leaders, they assign the essay to a summer intern, as, well, summer interns are experts on social media, right? And therefore, they know about LinkedIn, right? So who else should write an essay about thought leadership? Or, at least, I hope that’s the reason every essay about leadership on…

    A couple of months before it opened in 2013, my cousin’s husband (my first-cousin-in-law?) gave me an incredible tour of Nashville’s impressive new convention center, the Music City Center. (He was a supervising engineer on the project.) In the album of photos I posted on Flickr, I included a shot of four acres of its roof planted with prairie grasses; a part of its water collection system. (There are many more acres of solar panels and other green-things, also.) Earlier this week, I heard this story on Nashville’s public radio station, WPLN, about a volunteer beekeeper…

    Evernote, the quintessential note-taking software, has released a new web clipper add-on for Chrome, Opera and Safari browsers. While the web clipper is primarily used for saving snapshots of web pages to Evernote, the updated version is much more efficient at archiving Gmail messages.

    John uploaded a PDF file in Google Drive and shared it with Peter. A week later, John updated the PDF file and uploaded the new version to Google Drive. Peter however still has the link to the old version and John will have to send him another email informing of the new version. Confusing, right? You’ve probably gone through this situation where you have multiple copies of the same file residing in your Google Drive and, while you would like everyone to use the latest version, they are either not aware that the file has been updated or it takes too much work to locate it in the Drive.

    Ten years ago, social media marketing did not exist. There were online communities. People participated on those communities. It became possible, all of the sudden, for marketers to participate within those communities because they saw an opportunity. And so, all of the sudden, this pure network of sorts became a place for marketers, as they always do, to capitalize upon. In the beginning, a core group of social media marketers were making waves on sites that have since shut down, creating the foundation for social media marketing as we see it today.

    Being at the forefront of ecological and clean transportation, that’s what many car makers stride for today. For BMW the idea has been translated to reality as BMW Group and the SCHERM group will employ 100% electric trucks in their service.

    We have been lucky and were able to use solid state drives for a few years now. This ensured lightning fast performance even in daily usage circumstances. While the solid state drives are fast, they lacked in capacity. Many have argued that you would need an SSD with HDD combination, to fully utilize your computer speed. But with the advent of much faster, larger and better solid state drives, this is all turned in a completely new direction. A few years back, you had to bend over backwards to afford more than 1TB of Solid State Drive capacity in terms of finances. With the release of these…

The 6,000-square-foot house has a view overlooking Diamond Head, Waikiki and the Pacific Ocean, and two Tesla cars in the driveway. It's not the two electric cars that set the property apart from its swanky neighbors.

  • Aperlite YH-500N Review: A Great Low Cost Speedlight for Nikon & Canon Photographers

    Terry White
    6 Jul 2015 | 9:11 pm
    Speedlights are great for being able to light your subject on location. You get a portable, battery operated solution that with the right modifiers can be a great asset. The only problem is that the name brand speedlights by Nikon and Canon cost hundreds of dollars. This makes it hard to justify buying two or three of them. My main speedlight is a Nikon SB910 and it’s currently going for $546.95 at B&H. That price point puts them in the range of studio strobes. At the end of the day you need a good light that works with the functions of your camera such as TTL, and doesn’t eat…
  • Is the Amazon Echo worth it? REVIEW

    If you’re an Amazon Prime member then you were probably given the chance to order an Amazon Echo early and for the introductory price of $99. I took them up on their offer and ordered the Amazon Echo a few months back. I wasn’t really sure what it would do for me or if it would be worth it. I received my unit and went through the setup process using the iPhone app. It was pretty easy to setup, connect it to my WiFi network and configure it with my Pandora Radio and iHeart Radio accounts. From that point on I could just say “Alexa” and ask it pretty much anything that I…

    First off Happy Independence Day 2015! I know that many of you will go out and shoot fireworks this weekend. I started a little early shooting last night. Believe it or not it was my first time shooting fireworks professionally. I just hadn’t been to a fireworks display with  my gear in all these years. The last time I remember trying to photograph fireworks was years ago and it was a disaster because I made the amateur mistake of trying to photograph them handheld. Every shot was a blurry mess.

    I can’t believe how many times this question comes up. Usually it’s asked by new photographers or photographers that haven’t yet made a decision on which brand DSLR they’re going to go with. Last week I attended a photography meet-up at one of the local studios. Keep in mind that this was just a casual setting and I didn’t even bring my gear (in hindsight I wish I had as there were some shooting opportunities there with new models). Two of the photographers walked up to me and we started talking about photography and videography in general. One of them asked me…

    Instagram and Facebook have become the staple places for everyone to share images today. In fact, today we would much rather upload pictures on Instagram or Facebook in order to share them with the relatives or friends, rather than have an album made out or even send them the pictures personally. While both Facebook and Instagram are really good and easy ways to share image and more, the problem with the entire piece is the fact that both the services really shrink the quality of the images. You can neither zoom in and with Instagram you are stuck with a very low quality 640x square images…

It is too embarrassing then to go and ask the person where did you pick the dress from and worst is asking the cost of the same. This is where Flipkart’s update to its mobile app would prove to be a life saver, at least to the girls who always have an eye for the next awesome dress.

Force Touch provides another way of differential input for the device. It is now being reported that not just the MacBooks and Apple Watches, the next iteration of iPhones would also bring Force Touch which would allow for an extra layer of inputs on the touch screen.

    How fast could your internal IT department stop a potential DDoS (Distributed Denial of Service) attack? On average, a DDoS attack isn’t detected by IT teams until 4.5 hours after it has commenced and usually it takes another 4.9 hours before mitigation can begin. With IT services outage costs averaging as high as $100,000 per hour, it essentially means that a DDoS attack can cost an Internet-dependent company about $1 million before the company even begins to mitigate the attack.

Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, and at times InDesign were my tools of choice, simply because that is what I was taught to use in school. Then, in 2011, my laptop’s hard drive failed and numerous attempts to reinstall Windows 7 failed due to it thinking that I was stealing the OS.

According to a newly published review of 28 randomized controlled trials in the Annals of Internal Medicine, this shockwave therapy reduces pain and improves function in patients with chronic calcific shoulder tendinitis and may be a good alternative to conventional therapies. With this effective…

    This March, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved Unituxin (dinutuximab) as part of first-line therapy for pediatric patients with high-risk neuroblastoma. There have been few treatment options available for this pediatric cancer and researchers have been working on a new drug that can help kids’ immune system to fight cancer. There were very few drugs approved that were specifically developed to treat children with cancer. Unituxin marks the first approval for a therapy that aimed specifically for treating kids with high-risk neuroblastoma. Neuroblastoma is a rare type of…

    It’s time to take a serious look at Office 365. The cloud edition of Microsoft’s broadly adopted business productivity suite – which bundles such popular packages as Microsoft Word, Microsoft Excel, Microsoft PowerPoint, and Microsoft Outlook – has been both heavily praised and heavily criticized since its introduction in 2011. While the adoption rate of the traditional software edition of Microsoft Office is currently in no danger of being overtaken by its cloud-hosted cousin, recent adoption rates for Office 365 have substantially accelerated. Businesses, in particular, have shown…

It seems just as folks have gotten used to a particular Microsoft version, a new one is released with a completely different interface and requiring a whole new set of operational practices. Even worse, upgrading large numbers of desktops to the new edition in a large enterprise environment is a daunting task often avoided by IT operations teams until and unless it is absolutely necessary to perform a mass migration.

  • Replace those white title bars in Windows 10 with this colors theme

    Daniel Rubino
    7 Jul 2015 | 8:36 am
    Microsoft's Windows 10 changes many things, and some of those are not super popular. One of those deviations are the white (or neutral) title bars for certain apps. As it turns out, developers can choose the color when designing their app. However, if they do not specify a color, it just defaults to white. This behavior is slightly unexpected as some users expect it to match the accent color. There is a way to get back those accent-matched title bars, and it is through a simple addition of a custom 'theme'. Themes are still present in Windows 10 although they are pushed to the back a bit,…

It is full of ideas or in a way design patterns for winning small to large-scale conflicts in the most optimal ways.Even though the book is now 25 centuries old it still inspires leaders in our times. Sun Tzu believed that one of the better ways to win a war was to avoid a fight in a clever way. In our beloved software industry there are actually quite a few who believe the same.

    This has made it onto the top 10 films I have ever seen. When searching for the image above, I also came across the fact that the average review for it is very poor, between one and three stars, which initially (and stupidly) shocked me. This film is truly amazing and or a variety of reasons, but primary amongst them is that it is a very real portrayal of what happens when Political Correctness becomes the ideology of the day. And yes, I really do mean that, and yes, the emphasis on Political Correctness is indeed on Political. But do not be fooled. What you think is harmless garden variety…

I had been thinking of joining the tornado of blog posts on this topic, but what clinched it was that I bought a kinder egg for my daughter and when I opened it for her it had this in it. Seriously. I am not making this up.

  • Jetpack Gives a Boost to Mobile and Rich Media Advertising

    Desdemona Bandini
    25 Jun 2015 | 4:54 pm
    Advertising technology is hot with the rise of mobile, evidenced in part by Verizon’s merger with AOL valued at $4.4 billion, and on a much smaller scale, Undertone’s recent acquisition of mobile ad provider Sparkflow. Until recently, three legacy providers (Sizmek, PointRoll and Google’s DoubleClick) have dominated the rich media market. But that’s changing with a new crop of rich media platforms disrupting the ecosystem with new mobile and non-standard rich media ad formats, one of which – Jetpack – is located right here in Santa Monica.

    This article was co-written by Laura Kurtin and Amy Dodge. Those of us who have studied marketing in school and have worked in the industry tend to be a bit cynical about some of the gimmicks and ploys companies use to encourage us to buy their products and services. However, when we see our favorite product sitting on the store shelf in a fun new package (right next to the package we’ve always bought), and it costs a little more than we’re used to paying, we’re still pretty likely to put that in our cart – and we’re savvy enough to know that the product inside is exactly same as…

Will coffee and beer make me die young, or give me super powers (I’m really, really hoping for the latter, as I’ve been training hard)? It seems like every day there’s another article about what is or isn’t good for me, and it just adds to my confusion. I’m hoping to wake up in the world of Woody Allen’s 1973 movie Sleeper, where steak, cream pies, and hot fudge provide the clearest path to good health.

    Any guide to local SEO will mention the importance of  being listed on “directory sites.” These are websites that index and review businesses. For example, attorneys will want to be listed on Avvo, the leading law firm index, while a cafe will want to be on Urbanspoon, which reviews restaurants. These sites may directly refer traffic, plus having a listing on them contributes to your SEO. But there are literally hundreds, if not thousands, of directory sites out there.

Google assures us that the change is just a rebranding. If you log in and check it out, you’ll find all the same tools you had before, including your crucial SEO metrics. Only the name and logo are different. The reason for the change is that “Webmaster” tools sounded too narrow.

    In terms of SEO, the most powerful and basic step a company can take is to begin monitoring your rankings for your main keywords. Everything else—content creation, link building, and social—is likely driven by how well you rank and how far you are from the coveted number one position. Thus, if you have anything less than a crystal clear idea of where you’re at, your entire SEO strategy will suffer. The problem is, checking your ranking is not easy.

That’s especially true when your business has special summer hours.

A few early investors and employees, however, became billionaires thanks to their involvement with the company.  According to a recent Wealth-X ranking, Facebook has created more billionaires under the age of 40 than any other company.  Whatsapp cofounders Jan Koum and Brian Acton, for example, both became billionaires after Facebook bought their company for $19 billion in 2014.  We're taking a look at Facebook's original billionaires — the young entrepreneurs who made it big…

There’s no problem either with non-registration of SIM cards. The real problem lies in the failure of authorities to use all tools at their disposal to dismantle, arrest, and prosecute syndicates.

Combining textures with regular photos is one of the more creative ways to give an ethereal quality to photographs. Use the right texture and a common photo becomes “ghostly”. Use another and you can add extra drama to a portrait that you wanted to junk. Are the photos you take frustratingly one-dimensional? That’s where Photoshop comes in. Add a layer of texture and voila – you can almost fool the eye into seeing some depth. Using Textures in Photoshop Textures are used...Read the…

    It’s difficult to imagine a life without email, but some people are choosing to stop using it altogether. People like film director Christopher Nolan and billionaire John Paul Dejoria don’t use email at all, and couldn’t be happier about that. While you can employ strategies to avoid email overload, at some point or the other, you will probably face an intimidating number of messages in your inbox.

The second most important factor is whether you need to maintain any animations and transitions that might be included in the inserted presentation.

  • Off the mark: timing is everything in Tour de France sprints

    Chris Abbiss, Associate professor at Edith Cowan University
    6 Jul 2015 | 10:22 pm
    It only takes a small error in tactics to loose a sprint, as Mark Cavendish found out in stage 2. Frans de Wit/Flickr, CC BY-NC-NDThey say there is no such thing as second place in the Tour de France. The competition is hot, and the individual cyclists and their teams need to cover every possible detail in order to get the edge required to win. It can even come down to a matter of timing the start of their crucial final sprint within a one or two second window. And if they’re slightly off the mark, it could cost them the stage victory, as happened on Tuesday. This year’s Tour de France…

    The Right To Be Forgotten has proved controversial. A little over a year ago Google was told by a European court that it should accept requests to remove from search results pages that are "inadequate, irrelevant or no longer relevant".

    Game console exists as far back as the 60s, but it was only in the 1980s that the competition got really heated up. The competition continued into the 1990s, which saw Sega and Nintendo dominating the market. However, unbeknownst to many, during that time Japanese electronic giant, Sony was toying with the idea of a game console too. It started by striking a deal with Nintendo to add CD capabilities to the then-hot Super Nintendo Entertainment System (SNES) and Sony itself will design and produce a separate console that will play SNES cartridge games and titles for the SNES CD called Play…

      Quando ci ritroviamo fuori casa con il nostro cellulare una domanda è ovvia: come possiamo ricaricare il nostro Smartphone? Alcuni possono optare per un Power Bank, una batteria che possiamo portare dietro per ricaricare l’altra, ma se quest’opzione non ci piace dobbiamo per forza abbandonare ogni idea di far durare per sempre il nostro cellulare all’aperto? Siamo chiari: a volte anche i Power Banks possono essere insufficienti se stiamo per davvero molte ore fuori, per più motivi. Ma per fortuna esistono dispositivi capaci di generare elettricità che possiamo usare. Ecco…

    How often you have to figure your taxes depends on where you are. In the United States, there are Quarterly Taxes and of course year end taxes.The way your business is setup will make the difference in which tax form you need to fill out and send in, as well as when you need to send them in.

This will be my 6th consecutive MVP award year and I am glad to be a part of the elite community! I enjoyed writing my first published book and I evangelized Windows PowerShell DSC a lot in last one year. I started writing about containers. I have learned a quite a bit around IoT, Azure, AWS, and GCE. So, naturally, I am looking forward to more this coming year as I expand beyond PowerShell and DSC. Stay tuned!

I am sure even if you have not used any of the existing container technologies, you must have at least read or heard about them. I am not the first one to write about containers and this is certainly not an in-depth overview of container technologies. I will eventually get there and show you how you can deploy different container technologies. This series of articles is about my own thoughts and a documentation for my own reference. In the process, I wish to help my readers as well.

    A few years ago I had a project manager from my team in Scotland send me a copy of Eliyahu Goldratt’s The Goal after learning I’d never read the 1984 classic. At the time, the constraint this team was struggling with was an ability to get software specifications defined that supported the product management requirements. After reading the book, I naturally tried to identify constraints in all my processes, putting them through the standard Theory of Constraints (TOC) steps: identify, determine how to exploit, subordinate all to the constraint, elevate, repeat. I learned quickly that TOC…

So when I started my current company, I committed myself to investing in an intuitive user experience instead of traditional online documentation. Unfortunately as the product became more complex and we either failed to contain the complexity or had features that could not be reduced to a simple UI, I found myself looking for alternatives.

    When you are taking on learning a new skill, then you need to pay special attention to the types of training that you take on. The traditional learning structure that has you sit in a classroom for extended periods of time and listen to a supposed expert may not be the best environment for you today.

    This article may be a little controversial but it is part of my mission to guide our entrepreneurs to success — and if we can stop our founders from wasting time doing things that will never bear fruit, then we are doing our job. New venture founders are massively overly focused on VC-sourced funding – which may initially seem appropriate as lack of money is a problem that most startups face at sometime. However, there is undoubtedly a disproportionate amount of time and resource dedicated to seeking VC funding which will remain for most, a holy grail. Read more on Ventureburn. The…

    Is Uber ever not in the news? Between battles in France, Cape Town and the South African taxi industry, the hugely successful ride hailing app has made plenty of vested interests very uncomfortable. A lot of the tension focuses on the supply side of the equation — the taxi drivers — rather than the users who benefit from the service. Here’s something to consider: Uber is a godsend for foreign visitors, and it’s presence in a city is a competitive advantage. I speak from personal experience. Recently, Uber made a huge difference to my visits to Tokyo and then Bangalore.

    As a management consultant, my success hinges upon radical honesty. When a consultant is brought in, it’s usually because an injection of truth is required. As Albert Einstein put it best: “We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them.” People are afraid of the truth. Avoiding the truth about situations, people, and ourselves, however, prevents us from learning and keeps us stuck in repetitive patterns that thwart our evolution and the attainment of that which we truly desire. This is no different in an organizational setting. Companies that…
  • Manifesting My Desires: Am I Worthy?

    I have been considering what it takes to manifest more of what I want into my life. This led me to question: am I worthy of what I want? And how does one determine self-worth or self-value anyway? The whole endeavor sounds like a big ego trip. It’s not. Three types of people will read this post; those with 1. healthy self-worth, 2. low self-worth and 3. inflated self-worth. Individuals with low and inflated self-worth are both egotistical; it’s just different sides of the same coin (sorry to be the bearer of bad news). Low self-worth often exhibits as not manifesting what we desire.

Or will mobile finally be the one that knocks desktops off the edge and into oblivion? We’re not psychic, but the trends thus far allow for some very interesting patterns to emerge.

    Brad Reed
    7 Jul 2015 | 9:28 am
    A couple of weeks back, we marveled at just how crazy North Korea really is. What prompted our sense of awe was the reclusive country's proclamation that it had discovered a single drug that could cure AIDS, MERS and Ebola all at once. At the time we said we thought it was the craziest thing North Korea had ever come up with, but that's only because we forgot about its amazing proclamation back in 2012 that its archaeologists had discovered a unicorn lair in its capital city of Pyongyang.

According to recent *statistics only 29% of employees are able to take a full hours’ break for lunch every day, resulting in lower productivity rates.

Challenging markets, increased competition, rising expectations and always on technology have created a perfect storm of never-ending tasks that beg to be done. When you look at those who succeed and compare them with those that don’t or those that achieve merely adequate results, one of the differentiating factors is how people use their time. So here, in a quick read (because I know you are short of…

I really want to ship, but it has to be right.

This was then applied to other areas and seemed to hold true. In reality, Tom Cargill had it right…

    Netflix has slowly been getting into the business of making original movies, but it's all been smoke and acquisitions — until now. The company has announced the release schedule for its first set of films, and they're coming this year. Arriving on October 16th is Beasts of No Nation, the new film from True Detective director Cary Fukunaga. The film will be going live on Netflix, and is still set to open in select US theaters — very likely a qualifying run for any potential awards consideration at the end of the year.

    At the end of last month, Hacking Team seemed untouchable. The company occupied a controversial niche in the security space, contracting out surveillance software to law enforcement agencies around the world. If your phone got stuck with a wiretapping implant, there's a good chance it came from them. That made them notorious among the security community — they were exploiting the same flaws that coders were working to close — but their law enforcement ties made them hard to prosecute. They only sold to police and governments, even if the governments were some of the most corrupt and…

Because most enterprise app development teams make software the way they always have: They focus on the value that the app provides to business managers and not enough on how the app could add value to the end user. It’s easy to forget, but your enterprise employees are app consumers and they undoubtedly enjoy using apps like Evernote, Dropbox and Shazam for personal use on their mobile devices.

  • Unleash your users' sensor data with Sense360

    (Image Credit: iStockPhoto/PeskyMonkey) Modern devices are packed with sensors, but few apps take advantage of the data provided due to how complex it can be to make sense of it all. Sense360 aims to change this through enabling your applications to capture, combine, and analyse data from a variety of sources in order to create intelligent new mobile experiences. Even if every app on your device used Sense360, it would only have around a 5% hit on your battery after a full day. The company's new SDK which launched today allows developers to…

As a person who now runs gaming for Microsoft, what people have done on PC is critical both to our success and to Windows'…

    (c)iStock.com/RapidEye At the Computing Magazine Enterprise Mobility and Application Management 2015 Summit a few weeks ago, Allergan’s IT chief Wei Wang told attendees that introducing enterprise mobility into the enterprise is less about impressing stakeholders with technology and far more about proving use cases. “A big challenge,” Wang said, “has been convincing the business that mobility delivers value.” This is especially difficult because of regulatory obstacles in the pharmaceutical sector.

    (c)iStock.com/A-Digit Ask any C-level executive about their cyber security strategy, and you’ll most likely get a plethora of different answers. It’s becoming more and more apparent that a company’s employees are as big a risk as outside threats; one survey found some workers would sell their own password for the right price, while another argued the millennial workforce would inevitably have an “indifferent” view over their security practice. So how can this be remedied? Andy Taylor, lead assessor and CLAS information assurance consultant at APMG, argues…
