    The urban heat island effect, whereby the high concentration of heat-retaining concrete and bitumen causes metropolitan centers to be significantly warmer than the rural areas surrounding them, is a common problem around the world. The phenomenon is particularly prevalent in Tokyo, Japan, but among the sea of towering structures stands one beacon of hope.

    Foursquare's transition from one app to two completely different services is a slow one. Like a child getting used to a cold pool one foot at a time, Foursquare is gradually rolling out each new app.Today, the company unveiled a new logo and a new design for its flagship Foursquare app, revealing what it will look like once the check-in is ripped out and placed in Swarm, the location-based social app the company released in May. The new app isn't live yet—it will be available in the next few weeks.The new Foursquare will take on Yelp, but will be more than just a directory of businesses.

  • I’m Going to Want a Car With Built-In LTE…Eventually

    Harry McCracken
    21 Jul 2014 | 2:07 am
    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,…
  • A Celebration of James Garner’s Polaroid Commercials

    20 Jul 2014 | 11:52 am
    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…

    A DreamWorks Animation artist works on How to Train Your Dragon 2 using Premo Mr. Peabody and Sherman, the computer-animated movie which DreamWorks Animation released in March is–of course–the tale of a dog and a boy who go traveling back in time. So in a way, it’s appropriate that the proprietary software which the studio used to animate it, Emo, had a lot of history behind it. Emo’s origins go back to the 1980s, an era in which computer graphics were very different than they are today, and DreamWorks didn’t even exist. It was created by Pacific Data Images, the…

    Thanks to wearable fitness gadgets such as Jawbone’s Up and Up24 wristbands, it’s now very easy to get some sense of how many calories you’re burning as you go about your everyday activities. But figuring out how many calories you’re consuming–and other aspects of your eating habits–is still work.

  • 5 lies about psychology (you probably fell for)

    Josh Urich

    Not to sound like a Scientologist or Michel Foucault, but few professions have more power in the modern world than psychologists. As this Cracked article points out, we all tend to believe what psychologists tell us hook, line, and sinker. For example, the idea “proved” by the Stanford Prison Experiment that people will immediately turn sadistic when given power. Read the article to learn how that particular experience was flawed from top to bottom. If you’re one of those parents who bought their children classical music CDs to make them smarter––even as early as the…

I just hope Amazon isn’t surprised. Because if they are, they would seem to have a fairly large problem on their hands.

    The tablet category is getting quite a bit of press lately. Apple’s iPad is a solid barometer for the category. With Apple’s latest few quarterly results showing the slowing of the growth of the tablet sector, many are left scratching their heads as to what is happening with this product category. There is still a tremendous amount of growth potential for the tablet. The problem is, Apple is the only one driving the class in a meaningful way. Which isn’t all that surprising given Apple makes nearly 80% of the profits in the segment. With such little revenue to fight for,…

I mean, we all know that prior to every big Apple launch of any kind, the rumor mill goes into high gear. How often are those rumors accurate? Not very often… But then there are some sources that you just know are reliable. Marques Brownlee is one such source. And this video of the iPhone 6 display is obviously legit so can we just put that behind us and discuss the topic at hand? Great.

Yes, I am fully aware that some of the newer Android flagship devices are more impressive than the iPhone, in both personality and looks, but for me, despite many MANY attempts, I stuck with iPhone. I have played with the Nexus 5. I have even played with the HTC M8.

As my role of CMO at Zula, I am fortunate to work for a company that gets it. The company understands what too many companies still do not, that push marketing, self promotion, and spammy aggressive tactics simply do not work. The way to market a brand today is to provide value, whether that value is in the form of content, thought leadership, or just some help opening the right doors. I know, I…

We've had plenty of stories about the no fly list and the TSDB, and the ridiculous lengths that the US government has gone to to keep anyone from knowing if or why they're in any of these databases -- leading to a series of lawsuits from individuals who were put on that list under very questionable circumstances.

  • Texas Dept. Of Public Safety Quietly Starts Demanding Full Set Of Prints From Drivers License Applicants

    The Texas Dept. of Public Safety has apparently decided that if you'd like to be allowed to drive a vehicle in the state, you'd also perfectly fine with a criminal booking-style fingerprinting and having those immediately uploaded to a criminal database (that reps swear isn't a criminal database). For years, Texas has only required a thumbprint as a minor security measure when obtaining a driver's license or ID card. That has now changed. It's unclear exactly when this went into effect (the Texas DPS made no announcement of this policy change), but longtime Dallas Morning News consumer…
  • Vint Cerf Calmly Explains Why You Should Stop Freaking Out About NTIA Handover Of ICANN

    Back in March, we wrote a story explaining why the National Telecommunications and Information Administration's (NTIA) decision to "relinquish" what little "power" it had over ICANN was no big deal. It's sort of an accident of history that NTIA (a part of the US Commerce Department) even had any "mandate" over the IANA functions -- which manages domain name allocations. The "control" over ICANN/IANA has always been mostly a paper thing. ICANN is really run by a large group of folks -- the so-called "multistakeholders."

In reality, some colleges are starting to deal with students abusing drugs meant to treat ADHD but which also seem to increase mental focus in general.

During his time with the band, Payne cultivated a less-than-stellar reputation by (among other things) allegedly playing shows drunk, and the group seemed to have a hard time completing tours. Yet it was Payne's DIY projects that really sent his and the band's reputation into a nose-dive: Payne's Kickstarter raised over $14,000 for a DVD that was never fulfilled (in which Payne takes a shot at "needy" fans expecting what they paid for), and Payne was alleged to have forged…

     When I first took a look at Sense, a smart sleep sensor launching today on Kickstarter, it reminded me of two things. Beijing’s Bird’s Nest stadium and Google’s old, discontinued Nexus Q product. “Those are two of my favorite things,” said James Proud, a former Thiel fellow who went on to found a startup behind the device called Hello. “I wanted to create… Read More

  • Hugo Barra Denies The Xiaomi Mi 4 Copied Apple’s Designs

    24 Jul 2014 | 4:06 am
    A couple of days ago, Xiaomi took the wraps off their latest flagship smartphone, the Xiaomi Mi 4. The handset looks stunning and according to Xiaomi, uses premium materials like metal in its build, thus giving it a more luxurious and sturdy feel. However there were many who thought that the handset resembled the iPhone 5s, or at least Apple’s iPhone lineup in general. Well it seems that the comparison is one that Xiaomi’s Hugo Barra didn’t take too kindly. According to Barra, he claims that the handset was inspired by Apple’s designers, but at the same time denied that the company…

    Back in the day of the original PlayStation, it would be impossible to see the PlayStation not showing off games like Crash Bandicoot as one of its demos. After all as far as consoles were concerned, the game was something of a breakthrough. Old school gamers probably remember the game fondly and if you were wondering if it might be time for a revival, perhaps it is. Speaking to IGN, Naughty Dog’s community strategist, Arne Meyer, revealed that the idea of remaking Crash Bandicoot for newer consoles is “never off the table”. However Meyer adds that the studio has to think about whether…

    As you might have heard, EA is working on The Sims 4. The game is expected to be released in the near future, but in the meantime if you’re wondering what all the fuss is about when it comes to games like The Sims, you might be interested to learn that EA is basically giving away The Sims 2 Ultimate Collection. For some reason EA has decided to give the game away, but we guess we can’t really complain, right?  EA had originally decided to give the game away to those who owned the original version of The Sims 2 when official support for the game came to an end, but later on EA decided to…

    A few years ago back in 2011, Sony’s PSN was hacked. This was a huge deal as many had feared that their credit cards had been compromised. What made it worse was that Sony apparently knew that their defense systems were obsolete but yet did not make any move to change it until it was too late. Fast forward a few years, Sony was hit by a class action lawsuit over the data breach and according to recent reports, Sony has finally agreed to settle for $15 million. While the settlement has yet to be approved by the judge, if and when it does, it will see Sony give out benefits such as free…

    If you do not mind having a free non-open source Microsoft product on your Linux computer, the latest Skype for Linux release catches up to the Windows and Mac versions, providing most of the features they've had for some time. Microsoft rolled out Skype version 4.3.0.37 in mid June. The catch-up release has an updated user interface, some additional features, and lots of bug fixes. The latest Skype for Linux version also got rid of Alsa audio API support. Instead, it supports only Pulse Audio.

    Early reviews for Amazon's first foray into the smartphone market are mixed, with a general sense that the device is a good phone overlaid with some flashy features. Amazon announced the Fire Phone last month, trumpeting its 3D display, which uses facial recognition and front-facing cameras to shift perspective, depending on where the user's head is; a personal assistant called "Firefly"; and Amazon's live, interactive support service, Mayday. The Fire Phone is slated for release on Thursday.

    A failure to communicate between security pros and company brass may be contributing to the inability of a significant number of organizations to reduce the risk of cyberattacks on their systems. That was one of the findings last week in a study conducted by the Ponemon Institute and sponsored by Websense. Thirty-one percent of the nearly 5,000 respondents surveyed for the study said their cybersecurity team never met with the executive team about cybersecurity.

    The Tor Project is working to remedy a vulnerability in its anonymity software following the sudden cancellation of a talk at next month's Black Hat security conference in Las Vegas that would have revealed it. The planned talk, entitled "You Don't Have to be the NSA to Break Tor: Deanonymizing Users on a Budget," would have demonstrated a way to unmask users of Tor, the privacy-minded Web browsing software. Carnegie Mellon University researcher Alexander Volynkin was to deliver the briefing.

    The long-held belief that Android is the least secure of mobile OSes was shattered by security researcher and expert iOS hacker Jonathan Zdziarski over the weekend. He unveiled a host of iOS vulnerabilities, the scope of which was staggering: undocumented services that bypass backup encryption and can be accessed both via USB and wirelessly; a means to access all data encrypted with data protection if the device has not been rebooted since the user's PIN was last entered; and a packet sniffer that can be monitored remotely over WiFi.

According to VentureBeat, Apple is working with Swatch to build smartwatches – so that a broader range of styles may be offered. “From geek, to chic”, as VentureBeat’s source at Apple says. The suggestion is that whilst Apple is still thought to be ploughing ahead with its own iWatch designs and hardware it will also be licensing the iWatch tech to Swatch (and…

The other day we reported that in the next monthly Xbox One system update gamers will be able to watch Blu Ray films in 3D on their consoles. Great news for Xbox owners, but pretty awkward for Sony as the not only does the PS4 not yet support 3D, but doubly so because it is Sony that invented Blu Ray. So perhaps it is no surprised that early this morning Sony’s official Playstation account tweeted the following message: Coming next week: PS4 system software update 1.75 adds 3D…

    Last week, Miami-Dade commissioners gave the initial approval to allow ride-for-hire companies like Uber and Lyft to operate in Miami. This is a positive step towards finding a solution to the ongoing battle between public demand for transport alternatives to the yellow cab and vested private interests. However, the proposal is likely to face stiff resistance when it comes up again in a vote in September. That’s the bad news. The good news is that not all cab drivers are against Uber and Lyft and some of them are starting to voice their support on the matter. According to an…

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

    I really enjoy Beats Music but since they have a 3 device limit, I am logged out of the app on my computer regularly. I also have Beats set up in a Fluid stand-alone app on my machine. The reason I did this is because it keeps my music playing even if I happen to restart my web browser. I can also put the Beats app I created in my doc for easy access. Unfortunately this means the app doesn’t integrate into my password storage app. This means I would have to log into it in a separate window, copy my password and paste it into the Fluid Beats app to start music.

    23 Jul 2014 | 4:42 pm
    Last November, digital media company Interlude scored a viral hit when it created an interactive music video for Bob Dylan’s “Like A Rolling Stone”. As viewers listened to the folk rock classic, they were invited to flip through 16 channels, where they would find TV characters lip syncing in time with the music. The project got a large amount of attention thanks to its inventive, experimental approach, and after many requests from users, Interlude has now made the “parallel video” feature available to the masses through Treehouse, its video creation platform.

According to a report in Recode, AT&T and The Chernin Group have agreed to purchase a majority stake in the multi-channel YouTube network, which they will value between $200 and $300 million.

    For a long time, IT's job was about procuring, installing and managing large enterprise systems and it took a long time and a ton of money to get them working right. That's why once they were working they tended to leave them in place for years. Today, however in the age of cloud and mobile, stability has given way to agility and the cloud's incremental updates make so much more sense. http://bit.ly/1yNFrIw Photo Credit: William Murphy on Flickr.

  • And the 2014 Golden Goose Award winners are...

    23 Jul 2014 | 12:09 pm
    You might think upon first hearing of the Golden Goose Awards that they are snarky honors doled out for some sort of notable failures or another. But in fact, these awards given since 2012 are quite the opposite. The awards highlight "the often unexpected or serendipitous nature of basic scientific research by honoring federally funded researchers whose work may once have been viewed as unusual, odd or obscure but which has produced important discoveries that have benefitted society in significant ways." + Also on NetworkWorld: Biggest tech industry awards, honors & prizes of 2013 To…

  • The king of techie/geeky movies?

    22 Jul 2014 | 9:32 am
    wikipedia Benedict Cumberbatch, the British actor who always seems more imposing than his official 6-foot height, is establishing himself as a go-to guy for tech-themed movies. His next big splash will be portraying Alan Turing, the brilliant mathematician and "Father of Computer Science," in the movie The Imitation Game alongside Keira Knightley (Leonardo DiCaprio was rumored early on to be in contention for the leading role). Turing, who helped crack the Enigma code during World War II, had what would have been his 100th birthday celebrated around the world in 2012. To read this article…

    Legit Reviews has just published a review of one of those brand new Intel Pro 2500 Series 240GB SSDs. If you are in the market for a new solid state drive, this review will definitely be of interest. The Intel SSD Professional Family is designed with a little less emphasis on performance and more concern on stability, Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) and lastly manageability and security/encryption features. This means that the Professional Family isn't about having the latest cutting edge technology, but rather a reliable drive that has power efficient performance. Comments

  • The Intercept Reveals The US Government's Guidebook For Declaring Your A Terrorist Or Putting You On The No Fly List

    Mike Masnick
    24 Jul 2014 | 3:35 am
    Jeremy Scahill and Ryan Deveraux, over at The Intercept have a giant scoop: the full 166-page guidebook that US law enforcement uses to declare someone a terrorist who deserves to be on one of its various watchlists from the no-fly list to the "terrorist screening database." We've had plenty of stories about the no fly list and the TSDB, and the ridiculous lengths that the US government has gone to to keep anyone from knowing if or why they're in any of these databases -- leading to a series of lawsuits from individuals who were put on that list under very questionable circumstances. We were…
  • Texas Dept. Of Public Safety Quietly Starts Demanding Full Set Of Prints From Drivers License Applicants

    Tim Cushing
    24 Jul 2014 | 12:31 am
    The Texas Dept. of Public Safety has apparently decided that if you'd like to be allowed to drive a vehicle in the state, you'd also perfectly fine with a criminal booking-style fingerprinting and having those immediately uploaded to a criminal database (that reps swear isn't a criminal database). For years, Texas has only required a thumbprint as a minor security measure when obtaining a driver's license or ID card. That has now changed. It's unclear exactly when this went into effect (the Texas DPS made no announcement of this policy change), but longtime Dallas Morning News consumer…

    Back in March, we wrote a story explaining why the National Telecommunications and Information Administration's (NTIA) decision to "relinquish" what little "power" it had over ICANN was no big deal. It's sort of an accident of history that NTIA (a part of the US Commerce Department) even had any "mandate" over the IANA functions -- which manages domain name allocations. The "control" over ICANN/IANA has always been mostly a paper thing. ICANN is really run by a large group of folks -- the so-called "multistakeholders." I think many of us can agree that ICANN policies are currently a mess, but…

    The plot of the classic science fiction short story, Flowers for Algernon has been adapted into a wide range of other stories, TV shows and movies. Upgrading a person's intelligence through some unnatural means provides a temporary fix -- resulting in an addiction to intelligence augmentation (or other complications). In reality, some colleges are starting to deal with students abusing drugs meant to treat ADHD but which also seem to increase mental focus in general. However, other methods that don't use prescription medication to boost brainpower might be harder to regulate. Here are just a…

    Meet Cody Payne. Payne is the ex-rhythm guitarist and former manager of now-disbanded rock group The Dangerous Summer. During his time with the band, Payne cultivated a less-than-stellar reputation by (among other things) allegedly playing shows drunk, and the group seemed to have a hard time completing tours. Yet it was Payne's DIY projects that really sent his and the band's reputation into a nose-dive: Payne's Kickstarter raised over $14,000 for a DVD that was never fulfilled (in which Payne takes a shot at "needy" fans expecting what they paid for), and Payne was alleged to have forged…

    Shweta Jhajharia explains why over two and half million UK businesses are unable to break the coveted £1 million threshold and highlights three areas that might just hold the key. The majority of businesses never reach the £1M turnover mark – a level often used to benchmark firms. This is significant because most business owners, when they first started, envisaged not just a multi-million pound business, but a multi-billion pound business. Statistically, only 4% of business owners ever reach the £1M mark and further, only 10% of these businesses (that’s 0.4% of all business…

  • 5 Effective Ways to Monetize Freemium Apps

    Raja Manoharan
    23 May 2014 | 3:21 am
    App monetization is a hot topic today. More and more app developers are finding that their users don’t want to pay to download an app – they want it free, and they’re willing to suffer through advertising and other marketing methods to get that free price point. 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…
  • Top 6 Tips to Get Your Content Shared

    13 May 2014 | 3:14 am
    Getting your content shared is essential for anyone engaged in online marketing of any kind. Going “viral” is the goal, but it’s harder to achieve than you might realize. Truth be told, there’s no golden rule, no magic bullet, that guarantees your content will go viral. 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…

Speaking on the company's quarterly earnings call today, Nadella told analysts Microsoft will "streamline the next version of Windows from three operating systems into one single converged operating system."

    23 Jul 2014 | 12:47 am
    Yesterday, former Google-executive Hugo Barra, now Xiaomi's global vice president, had a talk with The Verge. Barra is only a year into his job as leader of Mi's internationalization efforts, but he's already "sick and tired" of hearing his company derided as an Apple copycat. He sees Mi as "an incredibly innovative company" that never stops trying to improve and refine its designs, and the allegations of it copying Apple are "sweeping sensationalist statements because they have nothing better to talk about."

Each of these diagnostic capabilities requires the user to have unlocked their device and agreed to trust another computer. Any data transmitted between the iOS device and trusted computer is encrypted with keys not shared with Apple. For users who have enabled iTunes Wi-Fi Sync on a trusted computer, these services may also be accessed wirelessly by that computer. Zdziarski, the author of the article that started this all, is not impressed. I don’t buy for a minute that these services are intended…

    No Man's Sky is a video game quite unlike any other. Developed for Sony's PlayStation 4 by an improbably small team (the original four-person crew has grown only to 10 in recent months) at Hello Games, an independent studio in the south of England, it's a game that presents a traversable universe in which every rock, flower, tree, creature, and planet has been "procedurally generated" to create a vast and diverse play area. "We are attempting to do things that haven't been done before," says Murray. "No game has made it possible to fly down to a planet, and for it to be planet-sized, and…

    A new, extremely persistent type of online tracking is shadowing visitors to thousands of top websites, from WhiteHouse.gov to YouPorn.com. First documented in a forthcoming paper by researchers at Princeton University and KU Leuven University in Belgium, this type of tracking, called canvas fingerprinting, works by instructing the visitor's Web browser to draw a hidden image. Because each computer draws the image slightly differently, the images can be used to assign each user's device a number that uniquely identifies it. Advertising companies will become increasingly...

    John Seigenthaler, the legendary editor of Nashville’s daily newspaper, The Tennessean, died yesterday (Friday, July 11, 2014) in his Nashville home. In addition to recounting his remarkable career in journalism and public service, an event nine years ago that’s now referred to by early contributors to Wikipedia as “the Wikipedia Seigenthaler incident” earned a paragraph in Mr. Seigenthaler’s New York Time’s obituary. As a Nashvillian and admirer of Mr. Seigenthaler for decades, I was angered in 2005 by that thoughtless and vulgar prank that became one of…

    For years, I’ve been fascinated with the ways in which one can tell stories with maps using simple tools Google Maps provides. (Since my first attempt at doing it, the tools have become incredibly more sophisticated). On the website for the public radio show, This American Life, I just ran across a map-as-feature that I can’t recall seeing on another news site. It could be on lots of them, I just don’t recall ever having seen it. And it could have been on This American Life’s website for years, but I just saw it for the first time today. This American Life calls the…

    All week, anyone who follows the news has been carpet-bombed with punditry informing them that House Majority Leader Eric Cantor’s defeat was because he supported immigration reform. Yet now, polls on both the right and left are revealing that immigration reform was far down on the list of issues that influenced the election’s outcome. Reporting on a poll conducted by Americans for a Conservative Direction, Politico says, “Only 22 percent of Virginia residents who voted for Cantor’s opponent, Dave Brat, cited immigration as the primary reason for their vote.

However, I know lots of people — including several of my friends — can’t stand baseball.

    Last week I attended Google I/O for the first time and participated on a small panel about cross-platform design challenges.

    Last week Dropbox launched a new gallery app called Carousel. It's a focused app, only letting people view their photos stored on Dropbox1 and conveniently share them. There are a few interesting parts in the app but there is one piece I’d like to highlight: Swipe down to hide. This gesture doesn't delete your photo, it simply removes it from the gallery view. It's not a heavy action. There's no cognitive overhead, no thinking "wait, do I want this shot?" as there generally is when deleting items.

  • More AT&T customers switch to paying for their phones

    24 Jul 2014 | 12:18 am
    A majority of AT&T’s new smartphone customers are now choosing a plan where they pay for their phones over time, helping to drive strong second-quarter financial results, the carrier said. Under the AT&T Next plan, introduced last July, subscribers make monthly device payments and can switch to a new phone model once a year. That saves AT&T from having to subsidize the phone, something U.S. mobile operators have done for years at great cost. Interest in Next is accelerating, making up more than 50 percent of the carrier’s smartphone additions and plan upgrades in the second…

    Dustin Smith, Product Marketing Manager at Tableau Software If you’re in sales or marketing then it’s very likely you have a data wrangling addiction.  Don’t deny it, we’ve all been there.  You hop between any number of systems in a given day (Salesforce, Eloqua, Oracle, SQL Server, HubSpot, etc., etc., etc.) and the only way to take control of your world is to dump all that data into one place and try to make some sense of it. For many it starts innocently enough by just needing to mash-up two Excel spreadsheets.  Soon, however, it spirals out of control as the data gets bigger…

But now, DataDirect Cloud has changed all that.

  • Security Researcher Claims iOS Devices Have a Backdoor

    A security researcher is claiming to have found a set of services in iOS that appear to be a firmware-level backdoor in iOS devices. What’s more interesting is that Apple has, in a very non-Apple manner, responded to his claims by posting a support page about it. He claims that these are confirmations of the backdoors that he found in iOS and that Apple claims to use them for diagnostic and enterprise purposes. These backdoors can only be accessed by Apple (or anyone that has access to Apple’s services) so they’re mostly secure backdoors, but they are backdoors nonetheless.

  • When We Are Bold

    Alex Goldfayn
    21 Jul 2014 | 2:01 am
    Customers are trained to contact us when they need something, or when there is a problem. Nobody calls when we’re doing a great job for them, because that’s expected, and, in turn, taken for granted. So we get a significant influx of negative feedback, from a very small minority of our customers. The great majority of our customers are very happy with our work. We must seek out these positive thoughts, feelings and feedback from our customers. When we hear the wonderful ways our happy customers perceive us, we become bolder. And when we are bold, we are confident. We take more…
  • Killing Commodity Status

    Alex Goldfayn
    14 Jul 2014 | 4:14 am
    This morning I’m delivering a keynote to more than 1,000 people for the AmericanHort association — the largest horticultural association in the US. It’s titled Kill The Commodity, and the organizer selected the title. Most companies in competitive spaces are perceived as commodities — a printer is a printer, right? Doors are doors, construction is construction, and distributors are distributors. The problem is that when the market views you as a commodity, all you have to compete on is price, and life is very difficult. That’s why people in commodity businesses…
  • Awareness

    Alex Goldfayn
    7 Jul 2014 | 12:02 am
    Think about your typical customers: on average, what percentage of your entire range of products and services are they aware of? I ask every audience, client and prospect this question, because it is the single lowest hanging fruit for revenue. Answers range between 5% and 50%, but almost never higher. People cannot buy what they do not know about. We think about everything we offer, because it is our job. But our customers have their own jobs. And even if we’ve told them (repeatedly!) about the other products and services they can buy from us, they are probably not aware of them. How do we…
  • Help People, Even In Your Marketing

    Alex Goldfayn
    30 Jun 2014 | 12:23 am
    Just like your products and services, the best marketing helps people. It doesn’t pitch, propose, push, prod or promise. Rather, it demonstrates your outstanding value to your customers and prospects. It offers ideas, tools, techniques, approaches, and advice for improvement. If you sell products, help your market get the most out of them. If you sell services, teach people how to improve in your area of expertise. Think about your market: as a group, where are they falling short? What are they doing incorrectly that can be bettered? Right now, make a list of a half-dozen such areas.

    In an era of ever-expanding communications platforms and tools, the personal communication is going the way of the triceratops and the Palm Pilot.Think about it: how many personal, one-on-one emails and phone calls from do you receive in a day? For most of us, the number is dwarfed by group mailings, blasts, conference calls, and, yes, social media sharing. I like writing with fountain pens, so every week I send several hand-written personal notes. Nearly every recipient comments how nice — and rare! — it is. We’re supposed to be communicating more than ever, but…

    NCIS star Pauley Perrette was recently hospitalized due to a severe allergic reaction to the black hair dye she uses. Now the 45-year-old actress has warned her fans of the dangers of hair coloring. Perrette plays a goth-inspired forensic scientist named Abby Sciuto on NCIS, and keeps her hair jet black for the role. Perrette, a natural blonde, had been darkening her hair for roughly twenty years, without any serious issues. Though recently, the New Orleans-born actress developed a rash, along with severe swelling. “The other half of my face had become twice the size of my head,” Perrette…

Kendall first showed her dedication to modeling when she walked down the catwalk at New York Fashion Week wearing a sheer top made by designer Marc Jacobs.

    I have been using the HTC M8 as my primary device for just over two months now. While the device is without a doubt, excellent and ticks most of the boxes you would want your daily driver to tick, there are a few minor things that annoy me. As revered as the build quality and designing capabilities of HTC are, they have always dropped big bombs when it comes to QC of their devices. Several of the M7 devices last year shipped with a camera lens that produced a weird purple flare when used under low lighting conditions and had an odd hairline space between the contact point where the metal and…

The device will be a successor to the Lumia 520, but the Microsoft owned company has decided to cut more than a few corners with the device despite boasting a higher moniker number in the series. The Nokia Lumia 530 packs a 4 inch FWVGA screen and has a Snapdragon 200 chipset at the heart of it. The phone runs Windows Phone 8.1 out of the box and has a 5 MP fixed Focus camera on the rear.

In fact, for the past 2 months, I have virtually unfollowed every single friend on my Facebook feed which makes sure my feed is a constant fill from the content from sites or publications that I would be interested in reading. Given how important the social media audience is for all the major publishers, it is no surprise that the article is immediately shared on the Facebook page of these publishers.

    Being a company that earns maximum revenue by selling smartphones, tablets and of course through distribution of components such as memory cards and chipsets, it is unusual for Samsung to release a television with an exorbitant price tag of $120,000 ($119,999.99 to be exact). However, the South Korean multinational electronics company will soon be doing that. The new television set will be called Samsung UN105S9W TV.

They nod and say “hi” at parties, but are definitely not close friends.  It’s really too bad, they have so much in common and would have a lot to talk about.  They both know so much about your company’s customers, orders, products and shipments, but one only hears about what the other knows through hearsay (sometimes called “data entry” in the business world). This article will begin to tell a story of building bonds of friendship between…
  • IE Testing with Mac OS X

    Microsoft is trying to give us ways to make things work, even though it’s still painful. When we moved our office from Uniontown to Pittsburgh, we left behind a handful of 5-10 year old PCs that were wasting space in our office, aside from testing our projects in Internet Explorer. We should have a Linux install party at The Beauty Shoppe and donate those machines, stripping the XP serial numbers/labels off the top (so not to fuel the never ending cycle of people not upgrading their computers)! This worked fine for us, but sooping up our Mac’s with more RAM or upgrading allowed…
  • Drupal QuickTip: Changing your Password without Admin Access

    Melissa Piper
    18 Jul 2014 | 6:34 am
    I recently ran into a problem while trying to login to a client’s Drupal 7 website: the password I had was incorrect, and the email address for the site’s past maintainer was no longer valid. I needed to login to this site to make some updates, but how could I login without the correct login credentials? If you find yourself having this same problem, and you have access to cPanel/FTP and the database, you’ll be able to get out of this situation in under 5 minutes. You won’t be able to dig up the current password, but you’ll be able to reset it with these simple…

  • 5 Ways to Connect Your Online Store to the Rest of the Business

    We help clients with a lot of e-commerce initiatives, yet we rarely build a simple online store that *just* sells products online with no twists.  Given the handful of good online store tools out there, most clients could, and sometimes even should, hire a freelancer or an internal person to build a small, plain-vanilla store if that’s all they will need for a while. But often things quickly get tricky for a number of reasons including, among others, the need to customize how the store behavies, high sales volumes, or, my favorite and one of the most common, the need to connect the…

The first cover their offering is bamboo back cover, which retails for US$49 on the OnePlus Store and start shipping at the end of August.

    The tech world has been calling Apple’s much-rumoured smartwatch “iWatch.”  Now, a new patent granted to the company by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office calls the device as “iTime” and reveals some of the features we might see from Apple’s wearable device. The smartwatch will reportedly support arm and wrist gestures with a sensor-filled strap, meaning you can flick your wrist to answer a call or something. The device itself can also be taken out of the strap (much like how the iPod nano can be attached and taken out of its strap). It will have a…

  • Microsoft’s New CEO Needs An Editor

    Jean-Louis Gassée
    13 Jul 2014 | 9:42 am
      Satya Nadella’s latest message to the troops – and to the world – is disquieting. It lacks focus, specifics, and, if not soon sharpened, his words will worry employees, developers, customers, and even shareholders. As I puzzled over the public email Microsoft’s new CEO sent to his troops, Nicolas Boileau’s immortal dictum came to mind: Whatever is well conceived is clearly said, And the words to say it flow with ease. Clarity and ease are sorely missing from Satya Nadella’s 3,100 plodding words, which were supposed to paint a clear, motivating future for 127,000…

      By the end of 2014, many news media will collect around 50% of their page views via mobile devices. Here are trends to remember before devising a mobile strategy. (First of a two-part series.) In the news business, mobile investments are on the rise. That’s the pragmatic response to a major trend: Users shift from web to mobile. Already, all major media outlets are bracing for a momentous threshold: 50% of their viewership coming from mobile devices (smartphones and tablets). Unfortunately, the revenue stream is not likely to follow anytime soon: making users pay for mobile…
  • The Network Is the Computer: Google Tries Again

    Jean-Louis Gassée
    6 Jul 2014 | 1:29 pm
      All you need is a dumb device attached to a smart network. It’s an old idea that refuses to die despite repeated failures. Now it’s Google’s turn. In the late 1980s, Sun Microsystems used a simple, potent war cry to promote its servers: The Network Is The Computer. Entrust all of your business intelligence, computing power, and storage to Sun’s networked SPARC systems and you can replace your expensive workstation with a dumb, low cost machine. PCs are doomed. Nothing of the sort happened, of course. Sun’s venture was disrupted by inexpensive servers assembled from the PC…
  • Google might not be a monopoly, after all

      Despite its dominance, Google doesn’t fit the definition of a monopoly. Still, the Search giant’s growing disconnect from society could lead to serious missteps and, over time, to a weakened position.  In last week’s column, I opined about the Open Internet Project’s anti-trust lawsuit against Google. Reactions showed divided views of the search engine’s position. Granted, Google is an extremely aggressive company, obsessed with growth, scalability, optimization — and also with its own vulnerability. But is it really a monopoly in the traditional and historical…

Like our very own Justin Pot, who received press attention merely for being the tech blogger who doesn’t own a smartphone.

    Managing a computer’s storage has always been a challenge.

Here’s everything you must know to get the most out of libraries. What Are Libraries? Libraries, which were introduced in Windows 7, are virtual folders.

Could that world become real in the near future? Back in June, a group of marketing students at Berghs School of Communication developed a concept video for a fictional product called Google Gesture. The product included a wearable wrist band and a mobile app that used electromyography to read the muscle movements of a deaf person doing sign language. The system then passed those signals to the app, which translated…

    21 Jul 2014 | 11:00 am
    A new material structure developed at MIT generates steam by soaking up the sun. The structure — a layer of graphite flakes and an underlying carbon foam — is a porous, insulating material structure that floats on water. When sunlight hits the structure’s surface, it creates a hotspot in the graphite, drawing water up through the material’s pores, where it evaporates as steam. The brighter the light, the more steam is generated.read more

Crystals are paragons of order; crystalline materials are defined by the repeating patterns their constituent atoms and molecules make. Now physicists at the University of Pennsylvania and the University of Chicago have evidence that a new concept should undergird our understanding of most materials: the anticrystal, a theoretical solid that is completely disordered.read more

A homepage is the entrance to your website – a portal to the rest of your site with the goal of exploring it. It’s usually visited by those who have a direct link to your website.

  • Eligibility for Health Insurance Subsidies in Question

    Natalie Tornese
    23 Jul 2014 | 1:35 am
    In the United States, under the new healthcare law about 8 million people have signed up for private health plans via health insurance exchanges. However, as per the latest reports from federal officials the eligibility of about 2 million people is still in question. The Obama administration is reaching out to hundreds of thousands of new Obamacare enrollees receiving subsidies to resolve serious questions about their eligibility, as many consumer advocates have expressed their concerns that many of them will be required to repay some or all of the subsidies.  The new step was undertaken…

    Many people have had their coverage cancelled by health insurance companies. Last October, Florida Blue cancelled the policies of more than 300,000 customers (80% of its individual plans) on the grounds that the plans did not meet the requirements of the Affordable Care Act. According to the law, policies sold in the individual market as of January 1, 2014 should have covered the following benefits: Doctor visits Emergency and hospital services Maternity and newborn care Mental health and substance abuse treatment Prescription drugs Rehabilitation Chronic disease management Laboratory work…
  • ICD-10 Delay – Its Impact on Students

    Rajeev Rajagopal
    18 Jul 2014 | 3:15 am
    Healthcare providers, insurance payers and vendors aren’t the only entities that are affected by the unexpected ICD-10 delay of more than a year. Delay in implementing this coding system is detrimental also for students pursuing health information management degrees and trying to prepare for their careers. On March 31, the U.S. senate passed the “Doc Fix” bill that approved H.R. 4302, the legislation which delays the ICD-10 implementation deadline by one year to October 1, 2015. Students who have been preparing for the tenth version of codes now find themselves unable to…

    Meghann Kiernan
    16 Jul 2014 | 1:20 am
    A retrospective review of the medical records of 150 cardiac patients who had deactivated their implanted electronic cardiac devices (by request) revealed that both physicians and patients are not planning ahead or including their aspirations regarding the deactivation of devices in their advance directives. This is in spite of the fact that except one, all the patients analyzed had quite poor or terminal prognosis at the time the device was deactivated. The investigation also showed that surrogates rather than the patients themselves had made half of all deactivation requests, and the…

    Telemedicine has just got a boost with the American Medical Association (AMA) approving a list of the guiding principles presented at its Annual Meeting held from June 7-11, 2014. A component of telehealth, telemedicine generally refers to the provision of clinical services from a distance. The benefits include increased access to specialist consultations, improved access to primary and ambulatory care, and reduced waiting times. AMA’s recognition will ensure appropriate coverage of reimbursement for telemedicine services on telemedicine. According to the nation’s largest…

    BREAKING: Microsoft cutting 18,000 jobs, 14% of company, in its largest layoffs ever. It’s the largest job reduction in the company’s history — a major move by new Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella intended, in part, to streamline the way Microsoft develops products and runs its engineering teams. Microsoft is starting with 13,000 cuts today, and more will be made over the next year to bring the total to 18,000. About 1,351 positions will be cut in the Seattle region as part of that first wave, representing about 3 percent of the company’s workforce in the region. ... Read…

    Being adept in content distribution for SCCM, we at 1E are often asked about Nomad and it’s consummate integration with SCCM; and that without the need of any additional server infrastructure. Yes! It is a serverless solution and works without any padding Admin consoles and hence lesser administration. The installers are intelligent and perceptive, and integrate with SCCM without any human intervention. Once the Nomad installers for SCCM integration are installed, Nomad can easily be enabled and configured from within the SCCM console itself. Nomad can be set as a download provider via…

    I’d like to share with you all a few things that I have picked up while reviewing white papers and talking to customers regarding Software License Optimization (SLO). In short, Software Vendors are getting more aggressive when it comes to software license audits and if you fail an audit you are opening your company for the same treatment from your other vendors. Before starting at 1E, I made the assumption that major vendors audited their customers to make sure that their customer base are using the amount of licenses they have paid for, which is fair.  However there is an increasing trend…

What is interesting is that when we started the business in 1997, the core focus and the IT problems that we were dealing with (for our customers) were around simple automation. This was because the basic Microsoft tools hadn’t reached maturity, and what we were providing from the outset were solutions to make the Microsoft tools work effectively, such as patching the PCs of remote users – so we wrote Nomad; computers…

    Clive Thompson
    22 Jul 2014 | 7:43 pm
    I recently picked up 1001 Video Games You Must Play Before You Die. I couldn't resist the title, which so neatly refracts the gibbering cultural anxieties of lists like "1000 novels everyone must read". You see this sort of highbrow listicle often in the realms of literary fiction, movies, possibly poetry. It's classic canon panic, and I say that with a degree of charity and warmth; I actually think arguing heatedly and even snobbishly about what works of art are important and mindbending can be a lot of fun, and occasionally useful to the parties involved. But there's something hilarious and…

It's considered one of the first big essays to tout the idea that "originals" -- writers of deep originality -- are more important and awesome than derivative folks. I heard about Conjectures while reading a different essay this evening, and since I'm sort of obsessed with tracking the rise of our modern (and disastrous) conceit that originality is something that just kind of wells up from inside you I immediately dialed up Conjectures on…

    Yesterday I saw a picture on Boing Boing: A "behind the scenes" shot of how they made the iconic opening "crawl" text for The Empire Strikes Back. I'd always assumed, naively, that the crawl was done with computer graphics, but no: It was a steampunk affair, with the text printed on a piece of glass and filmed at a steep angle by a camera. But what really struck me was the quote from George Lucas about the formal properties of a crawl: "The crawl is such a hard thing because you have to be careful that you're not using too many words that people don't understand," Lucas has said.

It's a cryptozoological encyclopedia of animals described in myth and literature, which Borges details with typically awesome digressive riffs. There's the "Squonk", which apparently is native to Pennsylvania, is perpetually sad over its wart-encrusted appearance, and thus can be hunted by following "its tear-stained trail". There's "The Hairy Beast of La Ferté-Bernard," which somehow survived the Biblical flood despite not having been on the Ark;…

    Waaay back in the day (say 2002), organizations would ask themselves: “If our customer and prospect (potential customer) information is our most valuable asset, why would we EVER trust it with a 3rd party who would put it with the customer information from other companies?” Today, organizations do not hesitate to start their sales endeavors with the swipe of a credit card and the creation of a Salesforce.com account. In fact, the concept of X-as-as-service has grown to have as many definitions as the concept of cloud computing itself. There are infrastructure-as-a-services (IaaS) that…

    If you are an IT manager, have you ever found yourself stuck in the uncomfortable position of having to choose which jobs are given priority access to essential computing resources? Most likely you have as this is not an uncommon problem. Expecting them to invoke the Wisdom of Solomon, enterprises often bestow the power to decide the workload hierarchy on IT operations. But as most IT managers will tell you, this responsibility is typically more of a curse than a blessing. A recent blog by IBM Tiger Team member, Xavier Giannakopoulos, titled “You are promoted!

    Sam Sabri
    24 Jul 2014 | 2:20 am
    Not happy with the Xbox Music platform? Take Beats Music or Spotify for as spin. Xbox Music. It's more than just the app you love to hate right now on Windows Phone 8.1. It's also a music streaming and subscription service that spans nearly every device you own. It's available on Windows Phone, Windows, Xbox One, Xbox 360, Android, iOS, and the web. Xbox Music is the successor to the beloved Zune platform. Right now I'm still happy with the overall Xbox Music service, even though I think there are a handful of ways Microsoft could greatly improve the service. That said, I acknowledge that the…

    Have you ever heard of the business model canvas? If so, then you know that it is basically a board of basic elements which need to be evaluated in the process of creating a product and the business around it. 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. So without further ado I bring to you: “The 11 blocks of software…

    It sounds obvious to spend your social budget to please valuable fans, doesn’t it? So why aren’t we doing so?

    22 Jul 2014 | 10:09 am
    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. In both instances, consumers have the ability to click a “buy” button within an ad (which can be prompted to appear based on a…

  • Doritos Does It Again!

    9 Jul 2014 | 8:50 am
    I can hear some of you scoffing now: “Yeah, right, because the world needed yet another Doritos product.” But as people in the business of innovation, we have to admit that the Doritos team does a great job of continually filling their innovation pipeline, leading to plenty successful new (and novel!) product launches. They’ve got to be doing something right, as according to Mintel they’re the leading tortilla chip brand in the US.PepsiCo has done it yet again. And by “it”, I mean stretching the Doritos brand well past chips – this time landing under a heating lamp at 7-Eleven.
  • Yo: Is it really that simple?

    Yo: A two letter word with ambiguous origins and typically inconsequential meaning. Or is it not that simple? One of the newest trends in social media and mobile apps has been the rise of the app named after such a seemingly innocuous term. Giving users only the ability to send the word “Yo” to each other, the app has already received $1.2 million in investment and has risen to the number one in the iOS app store. The fast rise of Yo was quickly followed by an influx of hack attempts, and when a group of college students hacked into Yo’s data and were able to attain user information,…

    In an interview about his hit song Instant Karma! (We All Shine On), John Lennon was quoted as saying “the idea of instant karma was like the idea of instant coffee: presenting something in a new form.” I’m not sure what the instant coffee category was like in 1970 (it’s surprisingly difficult to dig up 44-year-old category data), but it seems that history has a way of repeating itself. Lately instant coffee seems to be in need of a shakeup, and many manufacturers are throwing their hats in the ring. According to Mintel, consumption of instant coffee is on the decline in the US.

There is no doubt that Microsoft had done a lot of work in Windows 8.1 to please tablet users. If you are a normal desktop user like me, it might seem like you have to do everything with the mouse, but that is not true. If you learn some of the basic keyboard shortcuts, I think it will be a lot easier for you to navigate around in Windows 8.1 on your laptop or desktop PC. I think that most Windows users has a lot of habits on how we do stuff.

    We’ve all heard the phrase “content is king.” The past several years have seen an accelerating trend where search engines reward high-quality, valuable content. That trend definitely won’t reverse anytime soon, but it is taking an interesting twist: If Google’s newest changes are any clue, it’s not the content that’s king but the content creators. And just because your site releases great content doesn’t make you a content creator. It’s the individual authors that Google is increasingly shining the spotlight on, not the companies or entities that publish their work. That…

I've watched it four times. I'm now watching it a fifth time.  There's choreography.  There's a boring-looking meeting that gets disrupted. There's the main guy getting chased by a bunch of…

    Things do not look good for Crytek as the company is facing series of issues for the past months- employees either not getting paid or getting half the salary. Majority of Crytek UK’s employees have also stopped reporting for work as they were not paid for a very long time.

Along with him, few more people left including Crytek UK development manager Ben Harris.

    21 Jul 2014 | 5:36 pm
    When was the last time we heard something new or exciting from BlackBerry? Apart from the recent appointment of Marty Beard as COO, not much else. And this quick rundown by Ingrid Lunden over at TechCrunch of where BlackBerry stands right now isn’t all sunshine and rainbows: BlackBerry’s share price dropped by more than 10% the day after Apple and IBM announced their news. The effect was not helped by the general decline that BlackBerry has seen over the last couple of years as its market share in smartphones as tumbled while Android devices and the iPhone continue to rise.

    Yesterday’s journey back home in Manila turned out to be an interesting case of testing our values of respect for one another, the law and decency. One of my fellow passengers on the commute from Tenement in C-5 to the MRT/LRT station in Pasay City along the East Service road was an old man and a senior citizen. The driver of the jeep was a decade younger than him, I think. For the purposes of this post, I’d refer to the passenger as ‘Manong senior citizen‘ and the driver as ‘Manong Drayber‘. Yes, I need to work on better references. It all started when…

    Janet Napoles as a State witness?! It’s like pardoning the Marcoses of all their crimes against the Filipino people, letting them keep their stolen wealth and even proclaiming them as the first Royal family of the Philippines. It’s like telling all the farmers to give up their rightful claims on Hacienda Luisita and adorn the Cojuancos for their benevolence. It’s like telling Editha Burgos that she should trust the AFP are telling the truth and would help them find her still missing son Jonas Burgos. It’s like telling the victims of human rights abuses, some of which…

    Windows Phone 8.1 is slated for release in a month or two and while there’s not much fanfare over it as compared to new releases of Android and iOS, Microsoft has gathered enough attention to keep the whole world interested. A list of features of Windows Phone 8.1 can be found here, one of the highlights of which is Cortana – Microsoft’s version of a digital personal assistant like Google Now for Android and Siri for iOS. There’s nothing groundbreaking with Cortana in terms of what it can do. However, the most interesting bit is how it is the most transparent to…

    The last time there was a major slow down of internet speed in the country was back in December of 2006 when an earthquake that struck off the coast of Taiwan damaged major undersea cables that provide connectivity to the country. With incidents like these, even the biggest ISPs like PLDT and Globe were at the mercy of international groups that maintain the undersea cable connections’ ability to repair the damage. The recent damage hit the undersea cables lying in areas between Taiwan and Japan, and China and Korea. Latest reports say that repairs are expected to be completed by around…

    We all know the feeling. You apply for a job, and wait, and wait...and wait some more. You’re wondering if the company received your application, if you’re in the running for the job or just downright out for the count. No one likes to be in limbo during the hiring process. It’s often a full-time job looking for a job, so not knowing where you stand is just straight up frustrating.

Most people spend at least a quarter of their time at work every week. And that’s exactly why it’s so important to embrace what makes your company special and let your culture shine. We all know referrals are one the best recruitment avenues, and nothing says “come join our team” like a team member raving about why he or she loves working there. Last week I talked about getting…

    In House vs. Outsource Business today is looking for a way to provide shareholder value.  Outsourcing has become one of the latest “crazes” to boost stock values because shareholders believe it will reduce costs.  While your share price may increase in the short term, you may not see the cost savings and your share price will suffer later as your cost basis increases. It is sad that the cost saving “dream” presented during all those sales pitches often become a “nightmare” of spiraling costs and management headaches.  If you go into your outsourcing…

With some background understanding (and a lot of due diligence) you can avoid most of those rocks and navigate these waters. It does take work, work that your outsourcing vendor will never tell you.

The less aggressive you are with your outsourcing management the more profitable you are to the outsourcing company. Does fallout mean you will be in court? Sometimes yes, but sometimes it means re-negotiating a contract or, worse still, skyrocketing costs which can exceed the original costs that were replaced.

    Is our future really on the moon? Let’s take a look at how much it would cost us to fly 238,900 miles to the moon, set up a home that would be able to withstand constant meteorite showers, extreme temperatures (we’re talking -157C at night!) and solar flares, and sustain ourselves with lunar greenhouses, if we do live on the barren rock. Fair warning: it’s not cheap. Any takers? via BuddyLoansRead the full article: How Much It Costs To Live On The Moon
  • Have Smartphones Rendered Everything Obsolete? [We Ask You]

    Dave Parrack
    23 Jul 2014 | 6:30 pm
    Smartphones are de rigueur by this point. Almost everyone has one, and those who don’t have one are expected to explain why they’ve chosen not to comply. Like our very own Justin Pot, who received press attention merely for being the tech blogger who doesn’t own a smartphone. Smartphones are capable of managing such a wide range of tasks that it’s easy to argue they’re rapidly rendering everything else obsolete. Hyperbole? Perhaps. Either way we’re interested in hearing your thoughts on the subject of smartphones and the obsolescence of the products and…

    23 Jul 2014 | 11:00 am
    Managing a computer’s storage has always been a challenge. Microsoft’s addition of libraries to Windows has in some ways made organization easier, but this important feature isn’t self-explanatory, and using it to overcome some of Windows 8′s shortcomings requires specific knowledge. Here’s everything you must know to get the most out of libraries. What Are Libraries? Libraries, which were introduced in Windows 7, are virtual folders. They look like folders and act like folders, but the files in them don’t actually reside within the library itself. In a…
  • Will a Sign Language Translation App Ever Become a Reality?

    23 Jul 2014 | 10:00 am
    Imagine a world where the barriers between the deaf and the hearing are gone. A world where conversations flow fluidly among those who hear sound, and those who don’t. Could that world become real in the near future? Back in June, a group of marketing students at Berghs School of Communication developed a concept video for a fictional product called Google Gesture. The product included a wearable wrist band and a mobile app that used electromyography to read the muscle movements of a deaf person doing sign language. The system then passed those signals to the app, which translated…

    Its designation being a reference to its maliciousness (malicious intent), “malware” is essentially software that’s been designed for nefarious purposes, either to disrupt someone’s computer system or glean some type of information from it.  Part of the problem with malware of course is that it often remains largely invisible and/or infiltrates a machine by tagging onto seemingly innocuous programs.  Quite obviously it’s always a good idea to get rid of any and all malware as soon as possible or even better, try to prevent it from actually getting onto your system in the first…

    With all the media available on the Internet and the vast collections of digital libraries and images, we all have a problem when we want to rename a bunch of files so that they will be more accessible with a pronounceable name or a name that makes sense.

This information is of course valuable to marketers and a new study by customer engagement specialists PunchTab reveals that consumers are concerned about how location data is used.

    Transformation of Football In India. Andrea Schurrle breaks wide to the left and delivers a perfect cross to Mario Goetze who scores the most important goal of his life. This was watched by millions of people from all over the world. What struck me the most this time was the enthusiasm and the passion with which we, Indians followed the world cup.

    India has a very intolerable obsession towards Sachin Tendulkar. That shouldn’t be denied considering the legend’s contribution to India. But what has Maria Sharapova to do with Tendulkar. Russia is not a cricketing nation neither people there play cricket in streets. If that is so it shouldn’t be surprising if Maria Sharapova did not know Sachin. She need not know Sachin. Outburst of Indian fans against Sharapova was an act of immaturity. Leaving it aside.

    Books are the human’s best companions. That was well said. Books are for me as important as my clothing, my shelter and my food. Many times I have read books to wasting away time. But some books prove just more than just the time factor. They instil some positive impact in me. They change my perception towards few stereotypes and misconceptions. They as a whole affect me. One such book is Train to Pakistan by our very own controversial author Khushwant Singh. His controversial style of writing is well known. Yet he never cares. He doesn’t bother what critics say. He writes what he feels.

  • New spongelike material for effective Solar steam generation by heat localization

    22 Jul 2014 | 5:43 am
    Researchers at MIT have developed a new spongelike material structure which can use 85% of incoming solar energy for converting water into steam. This spongelike structure has a layer of graphite flakes and an underlying carbon foam. This structure has many small pores. It can float on the water, and it will act as an insulator for preventing heat from escaping to the underlying liquid, . As sunlight hits the structure, it creates a hotspot in the graphite layer, generating a pressure gradient that draws water up through the carbon foam. As water seeps into the graphite layer, the heat…

    Per filtrare i contenuti non adatti ai bambini alcuni siti, come ad esempio Google Search, Bing e YouTube, utilizzano il “safe mode” ma si tratta di un’operazione che può essere facilmente aggirata. Per far fronte alla cosa il team di Mozilla ha però provveduto ad implementare il controllo parentale direttamente in Firefox 31. Per far ciò il team della foundation ha utilizzato un header HTTP denominato Prefer:Safe che, appunto, impedisce la visualizzazione di immagini e video vietati ai minori.

Computers started out early in the last century being mechanical devices (card sorters), moved up to electronic sorters/calculators/computers with vacuum tubes and eventually transitioned to solid state devices with the silicon transistor. Since then the MOS and CMOS transister have pretty much ruled the world of electronic devices. Vacuum tube?

  • My Luxury Rental Car

    Joe Kinsella
    23 Jul 2014 | 1:40 pm
    The other night while on the Cape with family, we got to telling travel stories. I've collected a fair number of travel stories over the years - including my recent experience being towed down a busy sidewalk in downtown Seattle. But this is one I had almost forgotten. A few years ago I was traveling to a customer site in Minnesota. My flight arrived late and I dragged myself to the rental car agency hoping to get a car as quickly as possible. But due to the late hour, there was a limited availability of cars, and so the agency decided to upgrade me to a luxury car. I forget the exact model,…
  • The Agility Volume Knob

    Joe Kinsella
    22 Jul 2014 | 6:29 am
    I like to think I’m an Agile Pragmatist in a world of Agile Fundamentalists. I believe there is no single framework / process that is a panacea to the various issues within a software development organization, and instead processes must be adapted to fit the specific needs of a business, its customers, product, team and code base. For me defining the right agile process is like the test an eye doctor gives you (“is this better or worse? is this better or worse?”). Rather than prescriptive adherence to a framework, I like to borrow freely from the rich mulch pile of software development…
  • Denying Destructive Privileges in AWS

    Joe Kinsella
    12 Jul 2014 | 11:39 am
    I had mentioned in What To Do In Response To Code Spaces the importance of locking down your service-based IAM users to least privilege access. For example, if a service pushes a backup to S3, its IAM privileges should be scoped to write-only for the specified bucket. If a service is responsible for deleting expired snapshots, it's privileges should be scoped to only listing and deleting snapshots. But if your environment is even moderately complex, there is a good chance this auditing will take some time. To minimize exposure in the interim, I decided to create a quick and dirty…

    From the first day I was responsible for cloud infrastructure, I couldn’t help but feel the responsibility of the potential downside impact of running a business in the cloud. The most powerful attributes of the cloud - dynamic infrastructure, APIs, automation - make it possible for very bad things happen with a few lines of code and/or clicks of a mouse. But while I had always considered hijacking a real possibility, the story of Code Spaces last month still left me stunned. Below is a short recap for anyone who missed it: On June 17th, Code Spaces, a New Jersey-based maker of development…

For these customers, Amazon's documentation is a little vague on the expected behavior of reserved instances across VPC and Classic instances. Here is the summary from their FAQ: Q. Can I use Amazon EC2 Reserved Instances with Amazon VPC? Yes. You can reserve an instance in Amazon VPC when you purchase Reserved Instances. When computing your bill, AWS does not distinguish whether your instance runs in Amazon VPC or standard Amazon EC2. AWS automatically optimizes…

  • Explicit GoTenna Use Case: Buying Drugs

    Michael Arrington
    18 Jul 2014 | 9:27 am
    I read about GoTenna yesterday – a neat little device that connects to your phone via bluetooth that allows you to send messages to other people using GoTenna even if cell service is out. It basically turns your phone into a handheld UHF radio with encryption (which you can’t do as a normal citizen with a CB). Watch the video here on the GoTenna site. I noticed the guy smoking (and selling) marijuana yesterday and chuckled. Someone at Hacker News noticed the same thing and commented on it. Another says “I think they are quite deliberately pointing out that dealers can…
  • They Might Be Tearing Down The Creamery To Build Condos

    Michael Arrington
    17 Jul 2014 | 4:51 pm
    If you’re involved in the startup world in San Francisco you’ve likely been to the Creamery on Townsend and 4th street. It’s iconic, even if only recently so. In 2012 I wrote about the Creamery in a post talking about the shift in startups from the Palo Alto area to San Francisco, noting that “CrunchFund has probably closed (meaning the verbal agreement part) more deals there than anywhere else.” Other press cemented the cafe’s reputation as the place to do business. Today there are probably at least a handful of startup meetings going on there at any given…
  • Fifteen Months Later

    My defamation action against Jenn Allen, the woman who falsely accused me of rape last year after I ended our relationship, is over. She retracted her statements and apologized, which is the very relief I sought before filing this action, and I accordingly dismissed the lawsuit. The settlement agreement is here. Unfortunately, when you have been accused of rape — even provably falsely as I have been — there’s no way to “win”. For the rest of my life, when someone searches my name on the internet, the word “rape” will appear somewhere among the…
  • Ex-NSA Guys’ Startup To Protect You From NSA

    Michael Arrington
    18 Jun 2014 | 12:26 pm
    Virtu, a Washington D.C. startup, raises $6 million in new capital. The company is building an encryption product that will work with email platforms, including Gmail, Yahoo, and Outlook. Which is great except that the founders are ex-NSA guys who used to be paid to do things like collect emails and phone call information from hundreds of millions of terrorist suspects Americans. The kind of stuff that this new product is designed foil. It’s like hiring Darth Vader to build planetary defense systems to thwart the Death Star. Except the analogy doesn’t quite work. Vader switched to…
  • Microsoft Paying Bloggers To Write About Internet Explorer

    Michael Arrington
    17 Jun 2014 | 9:45 pm
    Update: Microsoft says they’re suspending the program in a statement: “This action by a vendor is not representative of the way Microsoft works with bloggers or other members of the media. The program has been suspended.” — Why in the world is Microsoft (through an agency) trying pay bloggers to write about Internet Explorer? Do people still do this? And given my position on paid posts, why would they think I’d be willing to participate? This is just layers of stupid. Here’s the link in the request below. Here’s the hashtag (#IEbloggers) that…

    For most of us, the purchase of a motor vehicle comes pre-packed with a hefty expectation of rampant depreciation. Drive that shiny new car off the showroom floor and its value starts to fall faster than a poorly co-ordinated fat kid from a particularly tall tree. But there are a few vehicles out there that […]

    Most of us see curling up in front of the TV as a great way to relax and get a little bit of downtime on a day off, but for some people this is an actual job, but Netflix is offering just that as a real, paid job.

  • The effect of online gaming on the UK economy

    Simon Jones
    3 Jul 2014 | 3:30 am
    Gambling is a popular pastime in the UK with 73% of the adult population participating in some form of gambling each year, earning large profits for the UK tax man, and just as with other sectors the large growth areas are online. Around 4 million people take to the internet to bet on sports teams or play online casino UK games according to the latest Gambling Prevalence Survey, spending about £1.7 billion per year with online gambling sites, which makes up roughly 18% of total UK gambling revenues. And this number is only expected to rise as more consumers find better odds with the…
  • Facebook’s secret experiment should surprise no-one

    Tim Dickinson
    30 Jun 2014 | 4:21 am
    Facebook is facing widespread criticism for conducting a psychology experiment on 700,000 of its users without their knowledge, but the reaction is unwarranted. The US-based social network manipulated what was seen by users in their newsfeeds in order to control the emotional expressions they were exposed to on the site in order to determine whether “exposure to emotions led people to change their own posting behaviours”. The company worked with Cornell University and the University of California at San Francisco on the study. There have been calls for the social network to…
  • Skyscraper Tetris breaks world record

    Tim Dickinson
    25 Jun 2014 | 7:37 am
    A game of Tetris played on the side of a skyscraper has broken the world record for the largest architectural video game display. Professor Frank Lee and two colleagues from Drexel University recreated the classic game on the side of a 29-storey CIRCA Centre in Philadelphia. The ‘game screen’ was made from hundreds of lights embedded in the glass facade of the building and measured a shopping 11,000m2, breaking the previous record also set by Lee. The game was played by dozens of Tetris-loving gamers in April using a joystick connected over a kilometre from the building, with the…
