    Looking for tools to inspire you is difficult work. After hours of searching on Google, you couldn’t be blamed for wanting to quit writing altogether and get a factory job sorting buttons.

  • Legacy Media: The Lost Decade In Six Charts

    Monday Note
    Frédéric Filloux
    31 Aug 2014 | 2:15 pm
      Ten years. That’s how far away in the past the Google IPO lies. Ten years of explosive growth for the digital world, ten gruesome years for legacy media. Here is the lost decade, revisited in charts and numbers.  The asymmetry is staggering. By every measure, the digital sphere grew explosively thanks to a combination of known factors: a massive influx of capital; the radical culture shift fostered by a “blank slate” approach; obsessive agility in search of new preys; flattened hierarchies; shrugged-off acceptance of failure; refocusing on the customer;  a keen sense of…

    Smart home technology isn’t all about thermostats and lighting. Here are automated ways to feed your cats, track your eggs and even find out about plumbing problems in your house. Conversations about smart home technology tend to revolve around a few stand-bys. There are smart lamps, which lets you automate and control light levels from your phone. There’s the Nest, the Google-owned entity behind a smart smoke and carbon monoxide detector and a thermostat you can control with your phone.

    The majority of the German team were members of the new bourgeoisie, which took far longer to establish any real political power than the English or French bourgeoisie. This meant both that much had to be responded to in the world of thought that could not be responded to in reality, and that thinkers in Germany were sometimes more aware of the complexities and ambiguities of the changes associated with the modern period than thinkers elsewhere.

  • Better health risk analysis powered by big data

    22 Sep 2014 | 2:30 pm
    As a volunteer fireman I have to undergo an annual health inspection. I’m something of a fitness fanatic and take my health pretty seriously. Every time I have my health check I’m pleased with the fact that my cholesterol is off the charts low, my weight is within normal bounds, my lung capacity is high and all the other tests that generally show that I’m in great shape. But… As part of the health test, firefighters are given an MI (myocardial infraction) risk score. Essentially this is a score that tells us what chance there is of us suffering a heart attack in the next 12 months.
  • Why CSO pay is too low in San Francisco, New York

    22 Sep 2014 | 1:30 pm
    CSOs may get paid a lot in New York and San Francisco, but cost of living offsets that. Credit: Shutterstock Among six major U.S. cities, CSOs are paid the most in San Francisco and New York, but factoring in the cost of living makes Denver and Chicago the best bang-for-the-buck places. The median income for CSOs between April 2013 and April 2014 was $184,000 in San Francisco and New York, while Denver was $162,500 and Chicago $144,500, IT placement company Mondo reported Thursday. However, the higher salary paid in San Francisco and New York was offset by the much higher cost of living.

The handy tools remember your long and hard-to-crack passwords to make them less of a hassle to create and use.

This stands in stark contrast to the recent news about RadioShack. Impending bankruptcy will probably drag this out for years, but the writing on the wall seems clear: the once-dominant consumer electronics retailer is going to die. And that’s too bad.

    Let’s start with the bad news: The Apple Watch. This beautiful, technological marvel is, in my view, the device our future selves point back to as delineating when Apple changed forever. Not necessarily for the good. The company long known for delivering absolutely amazing computing devices, so perfect, so uncannily universal that often times, one device, one product line, one price point is sufficient, is no more. The new Apple Watch starts out with three distinct variations and what appears to be a near-infinite number of eye-catching bands. This feels wrong. Tim Cook said the Apple…

    When Apple and GT Advanced announced a partnership to make and purchase sapphire screens, most of the media jumped to the conclusion Apple was going to use them in their upcoming smartphones. However, when the iPhones were launched and no sapphire screens were used in the iPhone 6 or the iPhone 6 Plus, I began digging into the reason. What I have learned about this issue and why Apple chose not to include sapphire in this generation of iPhone is fascinating and reinforces why all of us need to be more careful before jumping to conclusions.

    By: Hillel Fuld (@Hilzfuld) Many years ago (ok, not that many but 5 years in virtual land is a lot!), I decided I was going to interview people who inspire me. Since then, I have been doing so as often as I can. Here are all my superstar interviews. When I first decided to try to reach these people, I set my goals quite high and even made myself laugh at the thought of ever accomplishing the goal of meeting and/or interviewing the Woz. Well, it took me all those years but then a few months back, I managed to land my Woz interview. That is old news though, so why am I telling you this? Well,…
  • How and Why to Interview Superstars with Twitter and Google+

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

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

    By: Hillel Fuld (@hilzfuld) Listen up, folks. I am not a big fan of product leaks or Apple rumors. I mean, we all know that prior to every big Apple launch of any kind, the rumor mill goes into high gear. How often are those rumors accurate? Not very often… But then there are some sources that you just know are reliable. Marques Brownlee is one such source. And this video of the iPhone 6 display is obviously legit so can we just put that behind us and discuss the topic at hand? Great.

  • The One Android Flaw that Kept me on iPhone but Is Now Fixed in Android L

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

    ALGIERS, Algeria — A splinter group from al-Qaida's North African branch kidnapped a French citizen and said Monday that it would kill him unless France halts its airstrikes against the Islamic State (ISIS) group in Iraq. In a video that appeared on social media, a masked member of a group calling itself Jund al-Khilafah, or Soldiers of the Caliphate, addressed the threat to French President Francois Hollande and said the hostage would be killed unless the airstrikes were halted within 24 hours.

    The costs of analyzing DNA have come down significantly over time, so it's becoming increasingly common to sequence DNA and discover all kinds of biological curiosities. It's not quite as fast and easy as they make it look on detective shows on TV, but DNA analysis has made some pretty amazing advances. Here are just a few examples of genetic testing that you might have missed. It's actually not that uncommon to find people who are chimeras -- individuals with multiple genomes in their bodies. Twins can end up with a mixture of blood types that co-exist in their veins. Nearly all mothers…

  • Patent Troll Told That It Can't Sue The FTC For Merely Investigating Its Shakedown Scam

    Mike Masnick
    22 Sep 2014 | 2:31 pm
    We've written a bunch of times about the "scanner patent troll" MPHJ (which also goes by a bunch of other names, because that's how patent trolls roll). This was the company that claimed to have a patent on a network connected scanner that allowed people to email a scan. It sent out letters to tons of companies demanding between $900 and $1200 per employee for merely owning a modern scanner. While the company is a bit sketchy and hard to track down, reporter Joe Mullin more or less outed lawyer Jay Mac Rust as the "brains" of the operation. The details were so egregious that MPHJ became the…
  • FTC Finally Sues Pharma Companies Over 'Pay For Delay' Deals

    Glyn Moody
    22 Sep 2014 | 1:22 pm
    For some time now, Techdirt has been following the "pay for delay" scandal, whereby a big pharma company buys off manufacturers of generics so that the former can continue to enjoy monopoly pricing long after its patents have expired. As we've reported, the authorities have finally started to clamp down on this abuse of the patent system. At the end of last year, two drug companies were fined by the European Commission, and now it looks like the FTC wants to follow suit, as the Wall Street Journal reports: For the first time since the U.S. Supreme Court ruled last year that so-called…

    Another small win for fair use, courtesy of the Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals. There's some history behind the disputed derivative artwork, but that history -- while illuminating -- has nothing to do with the plaintiff or defendants. It does, however, explain why this item came to be, and is integral enough that the Court's decision recounts it during its very brief confirmation of the lower court's decision.

    26 Aug 2014 | 6:49 am
    I completed the Bulldog 25K trail race this past weekend, August 23 2014. This was my longest and only second trail race. After doing the XTERRA Malibu Creek Challenge 22K race in May, I had started eyeing the Bulldog race and immediately started training for it. I took a bit of circuitous route though, doing a series of 5K races including the Father’s Day 5K race and three of the fun “Boogie Nights” 5K races that were held on Wednesday afternoons near Surfer’s Point in Ventura. The other element that I added was some comprehensive trail running. Between May and August…

    After finishing the XTERRA Malibu Creek 22K race in May, I took some time to pick my next challenge. I finally decided on running my first 5K race, the inaugural Father’s Day 5K 10K Race in Ventura on June 15. This race had a couple of appealing aspects – it had a beach cruiser giveaway and the course happens to be on one of my favorite training routes. I also liked the idea of doing a 5K run to determine my “5K pace” which is helpful for planning workouts. For example, if I’m doing a certain type of interval run I can determine the pace based on an actual 5K…

The good news was that it wasn’t as hot as it had been all week (high 90′s and low 100′s) but it was still plenty hot in the high 80′s. This was my first of hopefully many trail races and it was a bit of a beast. I decided to do the race about three weeks ago and only had one chance to check out part of the course. I blogged about that experience in my pre-race report. Having never tried to tackle the infamous Bulldog Road portion of the course before, I tried to figure out how tough it…

For some a streetwear brand could be considered “cool”, while others might think that a company that produces supercars could be considered “cool” as well. However according to the CoolBrands list, it looks like Apple has managed to snag the title of the coolest brand for the third year in the row, putting them ahead of other brands such as Aston Martin, Nike, Google, YouTube, Chanel, and so on.

On one hand it would not have been a ludicrous idea as Apple’s acquisitions are typically acqui-hires where Apple usually wants the people or the technology involved, not so much the end product. That being said we’re sure this piece of news can’t have sat well with many of you guys out there who might have already paid for Beats Music subscription. Well the good news is that it looks like the rumors weren’t true after all. This is according to Tom Neumayr, an Apple PR rep…
  • Apple’s New iPhones Will Support 2.1A Charging

    22 Sep 2014 | 4:38 pm
    Prior to the iPhone 6 being launched, it was speculated that the new iPhones could be shipped with reversible USB cables and new chargers that would support faster charging. Unfortunately both the rumors fell flat on their faces, although in the case of the latter, it was somewhat true. According to the folks at iLounge, they discovered that the new iPhones have been equipped with the necessary hardware that would allow them to support 2.1A charging, thus allowing them to be charged faster which makes sense as both phones do feature larger batteries. However it was also discovered that…

    22 Sep 2014 | 1:15 pm
    HTC is said to be working on the next Google Nexus 9 tablet, which has seen its fair share of rumors in the past few weeks. The tablet came under the spotlight a week back, codenamed Volantis, carrying an 8.9-inch display and a Tegra K1 processor, as per the rumor mill. According to a new report from the Wall Street Journal, citing people familiar with the plan, Google has selected HTC as the next Nexus tablet manufacturer, with the executives flying to the Google headquarters in Mountain View to work on the project.Continue reading Report: Google working with HTC on the next Nexus tablet,…

The service has become popular over the past two years in response to the NSA revelations and claims that Google may not be very safe for people trying to protect their privacy. DuckDuckGo founder and CEO Gabriel Weinberg confirmed that the block had been established, but it is not clear why the Chinese government is targeting DuckDuckGo.Continue reading DuckDuckGo search engine blocked in China Related posts: DuckDuckGo gets new design and features Introducing DuckDuckGo: the Anti-Filter Bubble Search Engine Twitter takes one…

    I’ve had the Pong Case on my iPhone 5S for the past couple weeks. My case, specifically, is a Classic style case in Radiant Orchid and it fits my personality perfectly. The Pong case’s intent is to both reduce radiation exposure for the use and increase outgoing service in the phone. The case contains a micro-thin gold antenna that redirects the phone’s Total Radiated Power (TRP) outward. In redirecting this radiation, the Specific Absorption Rate (SAR) is… Continue reading Gadgetell Review: Pong Case Related posts: Pong wants to protect you from your iPhone’s radiation Atari…

Clearly, the just-announced Wine Smart handheld targets nostalgia-dominated mobile users, or simply folks who like to oppose trends and live in the past.

    Sony Computer Entertainment on Monday confirmed that nearly 700 games will be available for its PlayStation TV system when it launches in the United States and Canada on Oct. 14. They will include popular and classic franchises such as Killzone: Mercenary, Final Fantasy, Twisted Metal and Metal Gear Solid. The PS TV is a non-portable variant of the PlayStation Vita. It arrived last November in Japan and will debut next month in North America, making its way to Europe a month later.

    Marriott Hotels last week introduced a new vacation opportunity: instant teleportation from New York City to the beaches of Hawaii or downtown London -- no uncomfortable airplane trip required. The journeys are virtual, using 4D sensory technology based on Oculus Rift. Travel enthusiasts are able to see, hear and even feel what it's like to be present in locales halfway across the globe by stepping into a Teleporter -- a phone booth-style structure equipped with the Oculus Rift DK2 virtual reality headset, wireless headphones and a suite of on-board 4D sensory elements.

    Uplinq, Qualcomm's big -- and it was big -- developers' conference, took place last week. There were two parts that were particularly interesting. One was its new robotics effort, and the other was the announcement that it's pushing Vuforia, its augmented reality platform, into wearable head-mounted displays -- think Google Glass on steroids. Qualcomm is imagining a time when we'll wear these things from the moment we get up until we go to bed. It will have a rather massive impact on many of the technologies we currently use.

    Apple might be the flavor of the minute as new iPhones hit the market, but Amazon isn't ready to let its rival hog all the limelight. Without a flashy presentation, it unveiled a half-dozen new Fire tablets and Kindle e-readers. There's a 6-inch Fire HD tablet priced at $99 and a 7-inch version that comes in at $139. The Fire tablets are reliably solid machines, and those are fantastically enticing prices for entry-level tablets that still have access to all the apps a customer might expect and, of course, the Amazon digital goods ecosystem.
  • Android L Will Keep Your Secrets Safer

    19 Sep 2014 | 2:09 pm
    Hard on the heels of increased security measures in Apple's newly released iOS 8, Google this week confirmed that encryption will be turned on by default in the next release of Android. Android has offered encryption for more than three years, and keys are not stored off the device, so they can't be shared with law enforcement, Google said. In the next Android release, encryption will be enabled by default. Like Apple's new measures, the heightened security planned for Android L is in part a reaction to the widespread privacy concerns.

    Alibaba debuted as a publicly traded company Friday and swiftly climbed nearly 40 percent in a mammoth IPO that offered eager investors seemingly unlimited growth potential and a way to tap into the burgeoning Chinese middle class. The sharp demand for shares sent the market value of the e-commerce giant soaring well beyond that of Amazon, eBay and even Facebook. The initial public offering was on track to be the world's largest, with the possibility of raising as much as $25 billion.

    Apple has tightened its technological security so not even the company can pry into a password-protected iPhone or iPad, a move meant to reassure the millions of people who are increasingly storing vital pieces of their lives on the devices. The additional safeguard is part of Apple's latest mobile software, iOS 8, which the Cupertino, California, company released Wednesday. Apple Inc. revealed the stronger protection in a new section of its website that is prefaced with a letter from CEO Tim Cook who emphasized the company's "fundamental" commitment to privacy and security.

    Bill Brenner
    19 Sep 2014 | 8:28 am
    Back in May,  my good friend Eric Cowperthwaite caused a stir with a blog post about security breach victims getting demonized for failing to prevent break-ins. Other industry friends passionately disagreed. My thinking on the matter continues to evolve. But as is usually the case, my thinking takes me to the middle. Companies that suffer a breach — Home Depot and Target have been among this year’s biggest poster children — are victims. They don’t set out to put their customers’ data in danger and they probably thought they were practicing all due diligence…

But don’t forget how many rights have been taken from us in the name of fighting terrorism. He’s got that right. There’s been plenty of outrage in recent years over the U.S. government running wild, violating our privacy in the name of security.

Given that these operating systems tended tocontain their own varied browser implementations, with no option for users to upgrade them or install alternatives, the challenge of delivering a reliable web experience to all of them was almost insurmountable.

    15 Sep 2014 | 8:52 am
    The phone dominates your attention. For nearly every use, the phone has your undivided attention. Browsing the web, Twitter, Instagram, Snapchat, watching video, reading, messaging—all require focus on a screen that fills your vision, your primary attention, and generally some kind of interaction. Everything else, too, is always a home button or notification-tap away at all times. Is that a shock when the phone is the single gateway to nearly everything? The PC is now for doing work, but the phone is for messaging, taking photos, sharing them, the web, Twitter, Facebook, finding places to…

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

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

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

  • Faster STT-MRAM via different field-like orientation

    31 Aug 2014 | 4:13 am
    Researchers from the A*STAR institute in Singapore suggest a new design that could make STT-MRAM devices faster. Using a computational model, the researchers tried different designs for the relative orientation of the magnetic fields in both MRAM layers (the 'field-like' term).The strength of the 'field-like' term depends on the device geometry and the materials used. Devices with a strong field-like term has a greater potential to reduce switching times than for devices in which the field-like term is negligible. A better understanding of the field-like term is still needed, but this work…

    Over the weekend, YouTuber Sam Pepper created a controversy when he uploaded a video called “Fake Hand Ass Pinch Prank“. The video, which has since been removed, featured Pepper as he approached women on the street and asked them for directions. While they were distracted, he pinched them on the ass, only to then blame the action on a “fake hand” he was carrying around with him. As soon as Pepper’s video hit the Internet, it quickly drew the media’s ire. “It’s disgusting, it’s disrespectful, it’s gross and it’s ASSAULT,”…

    This morning I woke up to the aftermath of Apple’s latest event. On the one hand, you had people crying “Android had it first” and the other “look at this great new feature. It’s better than the Android version (where relevant)”. Sometimes it was in good fun, most of the time it was preaching to the choir and unfortunately it was occasionally vicious and bitter. This fanboyism made me think about the church and how we can sometimes be like this.

So, iPhone 6. iPhone 6 release date speculation If Apple holds to the same pattern as the last two years, the iPhone 6 will be announced on or around September 9, 2014, with a release date of September 19, 2014. That said, Apple doesn’t always hold to…

  • The Role of the Reflective IS Scholar-Practitioner

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

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

    9 Sep 2014 | 12:57 pm
    iPhone 6 launched today, apparently the "Biggest Advancement" in iPhone history. In 2010 we made some predictions about iPhone 6 specs based on a Moore's Law progression (see chart above, written in 2010 - as a commentator notes, 2010 "Hot PC's" had gone up a few notches too by 2014), we thought it would be interesting to go back to that - we were estimating it would: - Launch in 2014 (got that right) - 4Ghz processor (actual apparently 25% faster than the 1 GHz processor in the iPhone 5) - 2 Gb RAM (not yet known but unlikely to be 4Ghz) - 256 GB Memory (currently only 128, same as iPhone 5)…

A judge in Spain ruled that Brett and Naghmeh King must be held [in custody] for up to 72 hours while the court considers whether to grant a British extradition request.

But even if it was not an open secret, from an information security point of view data in Cloud systems is a nightmare compared to data on your own systems.

    The costs of analyzing DNA have come down significantly over time, so it's becoming increasingly common to sequence DNA and discover all kinds of biological curiosities. It's not quite as fast and easy as they make it look on detective shows on TV, but DNA analysis has made some pretty amazing advances. Here are just a few examples of genetic testing that you might have missed. It's actually not that uncommon to find people who are chimeras -- individuals with multiple genomes in their bodies. Twins can end up with a mixture of blood types that co-exist in their veins. Nearly all mothers…

When you buy, the company "offers" a "discount" if you agree to never, ever say anything bad about the company, ever: You agree that regardless of your outcome, you will not disparage RLN and/or any of our employees, products or services.

    We've written a bunch of times about the "scanner patent troll" MPHJ (which also goes by a bunch of other names, because that's how patent trolls roll). This was the company that claimed to have a patent on a network connected scanner that allowed people to email a scan. It sent out letters to tons of companies demanding between $900 and $1200 per employee for merely owning a modern scanner. While the company is a bit sketchy and hard to track down, reporter Joe Mullin more or less outed lawyer Jay Mac Rust as the "brains" of the operation. The details were so egregious that MPHJ became the…
  • FTC Finally Sues Pharma Companies Over 'Pay For Delay' Deals

    Glyn Moody

    For some time now, Techdirt has been following the "pay for delay" scandal, whereby a big pharma company buys off manufacturers of generics so that the former can continue to enjoy monopoly pricing long after its patents have expired. As we've reported, the authorities have finally started to clamp down on this abuse of the patent system. At the end of last year, two drug companies were fined by the European Commission, and now it looks like the FTC wants to follow suit, as the Wall Street Journal reports: For the first time since the U.S. Supreme Court ruled last year that so-called…

    Another small win for fair use, courtesy of the Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals. There's some history behind the disputed derivative artwork, but that history -- while illuminating -- has nothing to do with the plaintiff or defendants. It does, however, explain why this item came to be, and is integral enough that the Court's decision recounts it during its very brief confirmation of the lower court's decision.

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

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

Well, there is a time limit on these things, and I’m currently at a half time teaching load. Despite how unpleasant I find this precarity (and there’s reason to suspect it might carry on beyond my graduation later this year), and without getting into the anguish of detail on this count, I’m looking on the bright side, which is that right now my time is freed up a bit for writing.

    It has been a learning experience moving my 8 domains (including this one) from a ~$10/month hosting service* to a home server built on the Raspberry Pi. Not counting the small amount of time in labour (possibly 8 hours of learning/testing/configuring things, as I am a novice Apache tinkerer**), I will see savings before 2014 is up. The annual cost of virtual hosting with a hosting company, with a decent Linux server, software installation, full on access to mod-rewrite, unlimited MySQL, etc is ~$135.

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

    Chance Kinney
    22 Sep 2014 | 11:26 am
    Stellé Audio is one of the more interesting audio companies out there right now, with fresh ideas about how to turn portable sound into a fashion statement. Their Boombox Clutch disguised a fairly powerful set of speakers as a handbag, and now, they’re turning earphones into jewelry—something so natural and obvious, it’s kind of a surprise there have been so few attempts. The Earbud Locket is a set of wireless Bluetooth earphones that doubles as a necklace. While the earbuds themselves don’t appear to be anything special, the locket that houses them is striking, featuring…

    Apple doesn’t have the greatest reputation for security after unknown e-burglars sneaked into iCloud through the backdoor and took enough nude celebrity photos to warrant a Wikipedia page (see: August 2014 celebrity photo leaks). So, until Apple learns how to lock up the compound before they go to sleep at night, iCloud and cloud storage in general is probably going to get more askance looks than usual for the foreseeable future. And then, capitalism! Seeing a problem, someone went and Kickstarted a solution. The iStick, which joined the million dollar Kickstarter club with its…

    I never used to make it a full day on one iPhone 5S charge. Now, I have no problem. The new Duracell PowerMat and PowerCase not only doubles your iPhone’s battery, it makes it super easy to charge, too! The PowerCase looks like your run-of-the-mill battery case and adds an impressive 2,000 mAh to the iPhone. The trick up its sleeve is it supports wireless charging with Duracell’s PowerMat. You’re not fooling anyone with PowerCase; it’s clear that it’s a battery case. It exhibits all of the standard symptoms: fattened backside, elongated body, and recessed ports.

  • 5 Tips on Writing an SEO-Friendly Blog Post

    Caroline Prince
    25 Aug 2014 | 12:37 am
    It has been well established that SEO is just as essential to a blog writer as it to is to a website content writer. If your blog content is not garnering a good readership despite the high quality of content in the post, it could mean that search engines are not finding your blog. On the other hand, sacrificing quality for the sake of SEO is not prudent, either. Ideally, striking the balance between quality and SEO would not only open your blog post to discovery, but can even lead to and sustain a loyal readership. Here are a few tips you can follow to make your blog post SEO-friendly: 1. It…

    22 Sep 2014 | 3:09 pm
    Chris Nacca has posted an interesting video, in which the startup times of applications are compared between a Nexus 5 (released about a year ago) and the brand new iPhone 6. As you can see in the video, application startup times are essentially the same between the two devices, and in both cases, applications open very quickly. This raises an interesting question, more so because of this article I read on The Verge today, about some guy who was very depressed about his brand new iPhone 6 Plus because he couldn't use it with one hand. Aside from two obvious points - one, you have two hands,…

    Google has gone to valiant lengths to convince us that rumors of Google+’s demise have been greatly exaggerated, but Google is no longer forcing new Gmail users to connect their account to a Google+ profile - yet another move that could signal the end for Google’s troubled social network. I think I speak for all of us when I say - well, nice of them to do something Google+-related right for a change. In all seriousness - nobody asked for Google+, nobody wanted it, and virtually everyone hated it, and it does not solve any actual problem anyone had with Google products. It doesn't…

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

  • Write Emails in HTML and Send them through GMail

    Amit Agarwal
    22 Sep 2014 | 7:00 am
    The all-new HTML Mail app lets you compose and send emails using the new Gmail API. You can sign-in with your Gmail account and compose emails using the WYSIWYG editor, or if you are comfortable with code, switch to the HTML mode and write messages in HTML and CSS directly. The HTML Mail app sends emails using your own Gmail account but unlike the previous versions, it does not require full access to your Google Account. It only needs permission to compose and send messages on your behalf and would not be able to read anything else in your mailbox. The app is open-source but you can always…
  • Save SlideShare Presentations as Animated GIFs

    Amit Agarwal
    10 Sep 2014 | 6:39 am
    A new web called GIFDeck helps you convert any presentation hosted on SlideShare into an animated GIF file. All you have to do is specify the deck URL and the app will fetch the individual slides as images and stitches them all together in a single GIF that will auto-play and auto-loop. Here’s a sample GIF created from a SlidShare presentation on Steve Jobs. The app only converts the initial 10 slides, probably to keep the size of GIF within limits, but you do have an option to queue all the slides of a deck for conversion. While SlideShare does offer an HTML5 based option to embed…

    Samsung’s recent Galaxy Note 4 apparently edged out the recent Apple iPhone 6 Plus in terms of display quality, even though the analyst reviewing it basically called Apple’s displays the best he’s seen to date. In a report released Monday, DisplayMate’s Raymond Soneira—who does nothing more than test smartphone displays, by the way—called the iPhone 6 Plus display the “best performing smartphone LCD display that we have ever tested,” Soneira wrote. “The iPhone 6 Plus has raised the bar for top LCD display performance up by a notch,” he added.To read this article in full…

    With more and more computing hardware moving into the tablet and smartphone spaces, old giants like Dell, EMC, and Hewlett-Packard are exploring merger talks, according to a report. The Wall Street Journal reported Sunday night that EMC had called off a year-long round of talk that would have merged the company with Hewlett-Packard, according to the report. Dell also reportedly held limited talks with EMC, possibly about taking over a portion of the business.

    YouTube is the most popular source for online TV, with Netflix coming in second and Hulu third. That’s the conclusion of a 2,400-person survey conducted by Frank N. Magid Associates, one of broadcast television’s most respected consulting firms. The survey was conducted in June 2014, with the results being released to CNET on Monday. The numbers: Magid asked 2,400 people to check off a list of websites that they use to watch online TV. Thirty-eight percent checked YouTube, followed by 33 percent for Netflix.

  • Nvidia debunks moon landing conspiracies with new GTX 900-series 'Maxwell' GPUs

    Are you one of those people who believes the moon landing was made in a Hollywood basement? You'd better be careful how loudly you say that, lest 84-year-old Buzz Aldrin straight up punch you in your contrarian face. Especially since Nvidia is now backing him up with science. One of the foremost claims of moon landing conspiracy theorists is that the lighting doesn't match up in several photographs—that there's no way Buzz Aldrin could be clearly seen in the above photograph if he was in the shadow of the Lunar Lander. Not unless there were supplemental studio lights because it's all a…

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

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

    16 Sep 2014 | 9:11 pm
    It has been a while since I’ve looked at smart universal remotes. I’ve been happily using my Harmony One for years. However, it was time to setup a new room with HDTV, Apple TV and TiVo Mini. This means either using 2-3 remotes or just ONE! However, I didn’t want to go with another high-end Harmony, yet I wanted something that was still very good. This lead me to check out the Harmony Smart Control. This setup offers the best of both worlds. You get a regular remote control with physical buttons as well as a “hub” that allows you to control everything with your…

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

  • Revenue Questions

    Alex Goldfayn
    22 Sep 2014 | 5:41 am
    Are you making time for revenue growth? It’s a proactive pursuit. You cannot spend your days reacting to customers’ issues and significantly grow your organization. Are you behaving boldly? Because marketing it no place for modesty. You improve lives and companies. Act like it. Are you asking for testimonials and referrals regularly? These are among the best and easiest ways to grow sales. Are multiple people at your company consistently asking the “Did You Know” question? On average, customers are only aware of about 30 percent of all that they can buy from you.
  • Video: Focus On Your Value, Not Your Products or Services

    Alex Goldfayn
    18 Sep 2014 | 7:41 am
    Focusing on your products and services makes you one of a very large crowd. It commoditizes you. Focusing on your value, and the ways that you improve customers lifts you above the crowd. It makes you singular. It makes you money. These videos are based on my Growth Masters Annual Curriculum, a year-long learning program focused like a laser on growing your revenue!

    I often tell my clients that our work is a behavior change project:we’re trying to get your sales, customer service and marketing people to take one action daily that will communicate your value to people who can buy it. Revenue growth is a learned behavior (I teach it!) that’s made up of several core, critical components. Unfortunately, these mindsets and behaviors are not taught in school. If they were, we’d all be better off. Here’s what I wish they would teach us, and our children, in school:That the simplest solution is almost always the best one. In math and in…

    Alex Goldfayn
    8 Sep 2014 | 3:49 am
    Here’s an “advanced” point that came out of a client workshop last week: when asking for a testimonial, don’t use the word “testimonial,” as it places unnecessary pressure on your customer. Instead, ask for feedback, thoughts, reactions, opinions, etc. “I’m wondering, how would you say you’ve improved since we’ve started working together? What, specifically, has become better?” Same goes for referrals: don’t use the word, which actually decreases the odds of you getting one! Instead, ask for who else your customer knows:…

A source close to the singer said that the obsession began when Mel B started dating Stephen Belafonte, who is now her husband.

    22 Sep 2014 | 5:59 pm
    Plenty has been written, said and discussed about carrier billing and the prospects of the same in India. Indians are known to be wary when making payments online to purchase apps or utilities and as a result would much rather pick up a freebie or even download a pirated copy than complement the developer. As a result, a few years ago Nokia had come up with Carrier Billing, where users could pick things from nokia store and pay it via their carrier credit. This was a popular move all those years ago, but since then has been rolled back with Android and iOS numbers on the rise and their…

    Social Media rejection is perhaps the worst kind of rejection. We have all been privately rejected and not many of us like to own up to it or like to recite it. Yet, a social media rejection is so public that it is humiliating. We have all had that moment where we have just updated a status message or posted a picture and waited hours and hours on end for the first sight of interaction on it. Yet it always happens that none of it whatsoever comes by and you are left there, literally with an egg on your face thinking whether you would be better advised to simply delete the update and save…

In higher education, the National Retail Federation states that student spending for electronics (tablets, laptops, etc.) is up 20% from last year. There’s no doubt that classrooms are going digital – yet even with the increase in tablets, Chromebooks and other mobile devices, there remains a strong need to print. But printing from these mobile devices can be a challenge – with software downloads and kludgy apps that may or may not be effective. With…

  • How Linking to Knowledge Could Boost News Media

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

    Jean-Louis Gassée

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

These out-of pocket costs can be large especially for those patients with chronic medical conditions such as asthma that need regular and timely medical checkups. A new study reveals that low income…

It is partly because even if you are insured, some amount should be paid from your own pocket in the form of coinsurance,…

    22nd September, 2014 marks the launch of new versions of two key pieces of technology. One is a new version of our software waste identification and reclaim product, AppClarity. The other is an update to the architectural platform called ActiveEfficiency (AE) that AppClarity and Shopping currently rely on and Nomad, NightWatchman, and the forthcoming MyWorkNow will come to rely on for major future functionality. Let me start by telling you all a little bit about what Active Efficiency is, and why we at 1E have taken the strategic move to use the architecture and future kingpin in our…
  • How does Nomad determine network bandwidth and protect your network? Ping? Nope. Try Reverse QoS instead

    Troy Martin
    17 Sep 2014 | 3:36 am
    Network Ping, DiffServ, QoS or something special? There are lots of ways to calculate network bandwidth. A network ping can determine WAN speed but this is not ideal as many organizations disable ICMP for many security reasons. Windows firewall alone blocks a lot of ping traffic by default due to the inherent security issues that can be associated by it. DiffServ can give good Quality of Service (QoS) but requires hardware investment that can utilize this technology not to mention some solutions leveraging this technology only calculates QoS on edge routers. This may be okay for route…

  • Students on the Lookout – work from anywhere

    Simon Rust
    12 Sep 2014 | 2:10 am
    A few years ago, I was a student in higher education working towards my degree in Computer Science. I almost immediately found that the biggest issue I had was having to go to the university to find a computer to run my tests or to write documentation. I was developing in Turbo Pascal or C or, worse still, access to COBOL (yes, I’m showing my age). It didn’t take long before I was finding the cash to buy myself a home PC. My chosen weapon was a slimline 386 sx25 with a 40Mb HDD and 2Mb of RAM. This was around $2,000 and rather rapidly required both a larger HDD and RAM (6Mb RAM cost…

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

  • How to change IE Spelling language in Windows 8

    31 Aug 2014 | 12:35 pm
    When I first switched from Windows 7 to Windows 8. One of the first things I noticed was that even I was running Internet Explorer 11 on both operating systems, spelling control was not working the same way in IE 11 on Windows 8/Windows 8.1. In Windows 7 I was used to right click on a misspelled word and chance the language in case I was writing in another language in my default. In Windows 8 that is not the possible. My default language is Danish, but I often write in English as well. It toke me quite some time to figure out how I could get it to work in Windows 8, because I think it is a…

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

    Eugene Kim
    22 Sep 2014 | 5:11 pm
    PayPal cofounder and billionaire investor Peter Thiel has long been known for his contrarian views. He’s paying entrepreneurial kids to drop out of college, and is building a floating, autonomous island. He doesn’t like to hire MBA grads, and hates CEOs in a suit. It’s why the first question he asks any job candidate or startup pitch is: “What important truth do very few people agree with you on?” Perhaps, that kind of thinking is what’s made him one of the most successful entrepreneurs and investors of all time. After selling PayPal to eBay for $1.5 billion, Thiel has launched…

    Sam Colt
    22 Sep 2014 | 5:10 pm
    Apple may launch an updated iPad Air in October, according to a Commercial Times report. (Via MacRumors.) The report out of Asia says that Apple is also working on a new iPad Mini for next year and a super-sized 12.9-inch iPad for 2015. Bloomberg reported in late August that Apple planned to launch the bigger iPad in early 2015, so it's possible Apple is waiting to introduce it along with a refreshed Mini. There's been a lot of talk about Apple holding a product launch event in October, including this report from Bloomberg last week. What will the next iPad be able to do? Rumors say…
  • Elon Musk's Companies Have Been Tanking, And He's Lost $1.7 Billion (TSLA, SCTY)

    22 Sep 2014 | 5:10 pm
    Tesla and Solar City shares have been getting clobbered. Both stocks are also down from their highs over the past month — Tesla by 14% and Solar City by 20%. Tesla topped out during the trading day at $291 on Sept. 4 and Solar City hit $76 on Sept. 12. Elon Musk is CEO of Tesla and Chairman of Solar City, so he's been shedding net worth. How much net worth? He owns over 33 million shares of Tesla and almost 21 million shares of Solar City. The declines from the peak trading values for those companies have personally cost Musk something on the order of $1.7 billion. With a total net…
  • Check Out Etsy's Offices, Which Are As Artsy And Quirky As Its Own Website

    Jillian D'Onfro
    22 Sep 2014 | 4:56 pm
    Etsy, the online marketplace that specializes in crafts and other artistic items, has a gorgeous office space in Brooklyn, New York.  The company has been profitable since 2009, thanks to the site's more than 1 million active sellers, who made $895 million on goods last year. (Etsy's main revenue comes from charging sellers $0.20 to list a single item for four months, and then 3.5% of the value of the sale if someone buys an item.) As you'd expect, the office space has an artsy, quirky feel, but the team also has several sustainability initiatives. Etsy's office is in Brooklyn,…
  • This General Motors Touchscreen From The 1980s Was Decades Ahead Of Its Time

    Benjamin Zhang
    22 Sep 2014 | 4:18 pm
    Touchscreen infotainment systems are the all the rage these days. For most drivers, the idea of a touchscreen that controls all of a car's functions is sci-fi that only recently became reality. However, in 1989 General Motors equipped its Oldsmobile Toronado Trofeo with a touchscreen system that was decades ahead of its time. Called the Visual Information Center (VIC), the touchscreen gave the driver access to everything from the radio to engine management data. This must have been mindblowing for drivers a quarter century ago. In a 1992 review, the Orlando Sentinel's Richard Truett was…

    Happy birthday Malaysia!! Just how awesome is our country, that we celebrate an Independence Day AND a Malaysia Day, not to mention 2 New years day, (or 3 if you count Awal Muharram). So on that note, I decided to use my IT skills for the good of the country. To be honest, my IT skills have never been up to par, my day job is more managing/planning/documenting than actual execution of ‘real’ IT work. But it was good for me to dust of the ol’ programming fingers and learn Python to grab some publicly available information and make it more accessible to the less IT centric…
  • Is Malaysia’s Broadband slow–no it isn’t.

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

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

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

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

Nvidia pitches these cards not just from a performance point of view, but also in regards to power consumption, just like how the green team does for a while.

  • Audioengine A2+ 2.0 Desktop Speaker Review

    18 Sep 2014 | 4:30 pm
    We have reviewed the Audioengine D3 DAC some time back and we came back impressed by the tiny dimensions, excellent build quality and good sound quality. So when the Audioengine A2+ also came for review I was more than a little excited to run them through their paces. The Audioengine A2+ is not a completely new product perse and its largely based on their earlier Audioengine A2 which was already a fantastic product. So how do you improve on an already outstanding product without taking the pricing to a new level?. One way was to add more features to the product. So Audioengine added a DAC…
  • Is Asetek designing GPU cooling for AMD Radeon R9 390X?

    The Sorcerer
    15 Sep 2014 | 8:01 pm
    Leaks happening at the time before launch (whether its their own product or their rivals) is way too ‘perfect’, it obvious it gives a smell that its planted rather than leaked. Who planted it, or if its genuinely leaked is the oldest discussion you’ll see concerning leaks about information about any tech product. But a new GPU cooler design for the AMD Radeon’s upcoming GPU- Radeon R9 390X- came at the time when Asetek released a press release, stating that it secured a design win with an undisclosed OEM customer- for a GPU liquid product. Asetek further states that…

    Seeing the influx of Nvidia GeForce GTX 9xx series is piling up on a daily basis, it looks to be a no-brainer to assume that Game24 is the time Nvidia will be launching worldwide. However, knowing the amount of information at hand, there’s nothing really to forward to- except the ‘official’ launch and the GPU reviews and analysis from the respected tech review websites- as always. Anyways, Its assumed that Nvidia will be releasing its GTX 970 and GTX 980 GPU on 19th September. At first, Nvidia’s GTX 980 reference was leaked, although its AiB partners showed-off its…

With all due respect to Jeremy Renner’s effort, his Bourne Legacy simply does not cut it and it’s just right that it be continued as a spin-off instead.

    A good college friend is married to a Scotsman whom I met a couple of years back supports the Scottish independence movement. I was surprised to know that such movement exists aside from that of the Irish. With the referendum taking place on September 18 we are about to witness history unfold once more. Colin Daileda has a good piece on the pros and cons of Scottish independence which is based on this white paper produced by the Scottish government. With our own Bangsamoro Basic Law just submitted to Congress, all of these makes an interesting case study for students of Political Science and…

This may come as a shock to those who know me being a blogger and internet-savvy – a geek through on through but I still keep a stack of DVDs where my digital archives are stored. Those DVDs compliment my two external hard drives which, thanks to my ever-growing appetite for digital content, can no longer store the ones that I have lined up for downloading. With the wife adamant that I get her the whole seasons 8 and 10 of the now defunct CSI: Miami, a quick audit of what digital files and junk I had stored was done…

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

If you can remember a line or two from the song, probably just performing a simple Google search will bring up all the info you need without having to go to a lyrics search site. A simple search like “it doesn’t even matter” on Google will give you the…
  • How to Create, Mount, and Burn ISO Image Files for Free

    Aseem Kishore
    28 Aug 2014 | 1:47 pm
    Most online tutorials that I have found describing the process of creating, burning, and mounting ISO image files are written separately or are only about doing one process, so this guide is going to describe some free software that you can use to create and manipulate ISO images files for all purposes. Basically, the software is split into three categories: software to create an ISO image file from a folder on the hard disk or from a CD/DVD, software to burn an image file to a CD/DVD and software to mount an image file as a drive in Windows. How to Create an ISO Image File There are two free…

  • My Closest Friends Said I’d Never Make It as a Web Designer… Then I Did This!

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

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

    Getting your first PAID web design client is the most important action you can take for your coding career… whether you plan to be a freelance web designer long-term or not. It’s THAT important because it immediately makes everything much more clear: You see if you actually like coding You figure out what your clients expect from you You understand what to charge and why And, most importantly… you gain CONFIDENCE. You get to see first-hand that people WILL pay you money to code for them and that you CAN deliver. On the flip side, NOT getting your first client leaves…
  • How to Position Yourself to Get More Freelance Jobs

    John Morris
    6 Aug 2014 | 6:28 am
    I was recently asked: “How do I fill out my profile on sites like Elance and oDesk? How do I fill them out in a way that’s honest but more impressive than leaving them blank?” Here’s the simplest way I can put this… Your unique situation can and SHOULD be positioned to highlight your advantages. For example, when I started looking to get hired for freelance IT jobs I was completely self-taught and I believed that was a disadvantage. I believed coders who had gone to school were in a better position than me and would have an easier time convincing clients to hire…
  • Most Web Designers Don’t Do This… But It’s How I Get 99% of My Freelance Jobs

    John Morris
    31 Jul 2014 | 4:40 am
    Most freelancers and web designers immediately roll their eyes when I say the word, “branding”. Mostly because they’re thinking of big brand branding done by companies like Coke or McDonalds… that’s “not meant to actually make sales”. Yet, “branding” is how I get 99% of my clients. In fact, you’re here reading this right now because of the “branding” I do. So, if you can put aside all the mis-information you’ve probably heard about the word “branding”… Check out the video below and let me show you…

    Miguel Leiva-Gomez

    For many, security remains a mystery that is better left to the professionals. It has been seen as too complex for the layperson to explore or fully understand. While diving into the math of some of the most complex algorithms can be a daunting task, the essence of what makes all of these algorithms work isn’t necessarily out of anyone’s reach. Instead of looking at the minute details of cryptography that most people find either boring or overwhelming, we can look at the concepts that make up public key encryption so that we may understand completely what exactly is protecting us…
  • How to Use Android Wear Part 1: Navigating the UI

    Bertel King, Jr.
    22 Sep 2014 | 2:25 pm
    Smartwatches don’t provide the screen space that smartphones do, so with its approach to the form factor, Google decided to create an experience that is fundamentally different. Android Wear devices are designed to supplement smartphone usage, not replace it. This means you won’t be able to do most of the things on your watch that they can do on your phone. This also means you can’t interact with it the same way either. Android Wear’s UI is an entirely different beast from regular Android, so here’s a primer on how to navigate your way around it.1.

    As we own more and more gadgets, like phones, laptops, phablets, and tablets (7-inches and 10-inches), a new problem arises – the difficulty of bringing them around. When you are going for a meeting, do you just bring a small bag for your tablet or a big bag that can contain both your laptop and tablet? What about when you are travelling? You need to bring the power cable, and adaptor along with your laptop, and these items can easily fill up the whole bag. Instead of having multiple bags for carrying different gadgets, how about one single transformer bag that can transform itself for…
  • How to Encode H.265 Video Using ffmpeg on Linux

    Gary Sims
    22 Sep 2014 | 1:27 am
    Almost all the video we watch, over digital terrestrial TV, over cable, from satellite, or over the Internet, is compressed. Raw, uncompressed video is just too big and would waste too much bandwidth. Way back before DVD and Blu-ray, there was the Video CD (VCD). It was the first format used to commercially distribute films on standard 120 mm (4.7 inch) optical discs. The video on the discs was encoded in MPEG-1, a lossy compression format designed for streaming video data at 1.5 Mbit/s. Probably the best known component of the MPEG-1 standard was its audio compression format. Officially…

The equinox is a midpoint. It’s around now that day and night become equal in length (but more about that later).

  • AOC announces 24 inch hardcore gaming monitor (2460PG) with NVIDIA G-SYNC

    Brian Fagioli
    22 Sep 2014 | 5:30 pm
    When it comes to monitors, the brand does matter. Some people think that a monitor is a monitor and the manufacturer is inconsequential. There is some truth to this, as sometimes a lesser-known company can manufacture a monitor that exceeds the quality of some top-tier competitors. Unfortunately, this is the exception to the rule, and sticking with brands like Dell and Samsung is the safest way to have a positive experience. However, there is a brand that I discovered years ago while working at CompUSA that manufactures high-quality monitors at an affordable price -- AOC. Sure, it may not be…

Despite the shortcomings of Microsoft's phone-focused OS, I find it to be a very rewarding experience. Of course, the biggest complaint is a lack of apps, and while there has been much improvement in that area, it is still a valid argument when compared against the iPhone or Android. Apps aside, it is an intuitive experience that enhances one's life rather than take it over. Android and iPhone users are often in a zombie-like state…

  • Product rumors are Apple's best friend

    Joe Wilcox
    22 Sep 2014 | 8:19 am
    Apple's longstanding perchant for secrecy is legendary. It's also a myth. Granted, the company has a strict no-comment policy about future products, which isn't so much about keeping information from seeping out but controlling who disseminates it. Something else: Secrets are impossible to keep when a company produces physical products overseas and depends on so many third-party suppliers. Controlled leaks, or strictly managing those that aren't, lets Apple maximize marketing advantage. The value cannot be understated, because Apple's business model in 2014 isn't much different from 2001 or…

    21 Sep 2014 | 4:43 pm
    Read an article the other day in Wired, A system to cut traffic that just might work, about two MIT students doing research to help Singapore better manage traffic congestion. They have come up with a sort of token ring network for traffic. In their approach every car when it enters a “congestion zone” is suppplied an electronic token and when that car leaves the zone it retires it’s token (sound familiar). When the zone is too congested, no new tokens are handed out and cars are re-routed around the zone using GPS provided directions. It seems a bit hokey but using tokens…

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

But unlike everyone else in Boston, I wasn’t looking for a list of names to call. Instead I wanted to get a sense of the talent density at this company. Talent density works like this: high quality engineers prefer to work with other high quality engineers. The result is that good engineers typically be found in clusters.

I used to spend hours at SilverBack analyzing a competitor’s website, talking to their current and former customers, and sitting through demos. But over the last decade I stopped focusing on competitors for two simple reason: It distracted…

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

And that means she’s a competitor to the sites that regularly call out sexism, subtle or overt, that pops up in our industry. So she goes without defense. Not only does she go without defense from her peers in the industry, it’s actually one of her peers calling her stupid. Which is fine, she’s very tough. But if you see her today, let her know how much you respect her. She won’t show it, but…

Celebrities tend to have aggressive attorneys, and the damages here are extreme – some celebrities have had careers ended from leaked photos (while others have benefited) But a much larger crisis looms – everyone, and I mean everyone, now knows that everything private they’ve done with their iPhone, if they use iCloud, is…

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