    Harry McCracken
    3 Nov 2014 | 12:34 pm
    Back in the summer of 1997, I got my one and only assignment for a magazine called The Web, back when it seemed like it made sense to publish reviews and profiles relating to websites on dead trees. It turned out to be one of the most entertaining projects I ever worked on: I profiled Tom and Ray Magliozzi, better known as Click and Clack of public radio’s Car Talk. When I saw the sad news today that Tom had passed away at 77, the memories came flooding back. I made contact with the Car Talk team by getting the phone number of their production company. In 1997, you did that by calling…

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

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

    'Interstellar' Gets Big Boost from Imax Sales: Brent Lang: Keeping “Interstellar” on its large screens, which charge at least $3 more than the average movie ticket, has made it the preferred destination for moviegoers to experience wormholes, distant planets and Matthew McConaughey on the biggest possible canvas. The result: “Interstellar” has earned more than a quarter of its domestic gross from 360 Imax locations in the U.S. and roughly 11% of its international haul from the format. If that U.S. percentage holds, it will be the first film in Imax history to crack 25% in terms of…

    Packers' Aaron Rodgers Throws Off Defenders With His Voice: Ben Shpigel on part of the reason why Aaron Rodgers is so good: What makes Rodgers’s count particularly difficult to decode, Vikings defensive end Brian Robison said, is that Rodgers has no perceptible tendencies. And if he did have them, Rodgers would know. Besides reviewing the coaches’ film, which shows all 22 players on the field from above, Rodgers watches the network broadcast of a game. The microphones on the field improve the experience for fans watching on television, but they are anathema to a quarterback like Rodgers,…

Perhaps it’s just that the first film is so good, that nothing could live up to it. But this strikes me as decidedly the wrong way to take things. I mean, they felt the need to create a new dinosaur?! Why have it be about dinosaurs at all in that case? Instead of being about the pure wonderment of these giant beasts that really used to roam the Earth, we’ll get some sort of super T-Rex/Raptor hybrid. The ultimate killing…

    An anonymous reader writes: It's no secret that prosecutors usually throw every charge they can at an alleged criminal, but the case of Aaron Swartz brought to light how poorly-written computer abuse laws lend themselves to this practice. Now, another perfect example has resolved itself: a hacker with ties to Anonymous was recently threatened with 44 felony counts of computer fraud and cyberstalking, each with its own 10-year maximum sentence.

  • Is Ruby On Rails Losing Steam?

    As both a musician and an analyst who started his career studying displays, I’ve always been intrigued and somewhat obsessed with high quality audio and video. When high resolution multichannel audio formats like DVD Audio and Super Audio CD (SACD) burst onto the scene around 2000, I was an eager early adopter. I still have some DTS Music discs the company released around the same time as well as a few DualDiscs from that format’s launch in 2004.

     Regularly journaling your thoughts and feelings is a good way to “check in with yourself,” raise your self-awareness and connect with your intuition, but it can also be a time-consuming activity that most of us don’t have time for, given our busy lives. A company called All Tomorrows wants to change that, by offering a quick and arguably more fun way to track your feelings… Read More

  • FTC orders Sony to refund PS Vita early adopters after misleading ads

    Chelsea Stark
    26 Nov 2014 | 9:14 am
    Sony will be forced to offer partial refunds to customers who purchased the PlayStation Vita in the first half of 2012, after the Federal Trade Commission ruled its advertising practices at the handheld's launch were deceptive. Early Vita ads claimed the handheld was able to remotely stream PlayStation 3 games, resume games started on the home console and allow users to play online with other owners. The FTC said Sony called this "game-changing" technology, but that it was actually severely limited to a few participating games. See also: Hot games for the holiday season: A gamers' gift guide…

  • Mark Cuban Again Illustrates He Has No Idea What Net Neutrality Is Or Why It's Important

    Karl Bode
    26 Nov 2014 | 8:21 am
    To be very clear, there are some subjects Mark Cuban has a very good understanding of, ranging from his support of patent reform and his helpful goal of improving antiquated film release windows to highlighting the SEC's disdain for the 14th and 4th Amendments during his fight over insider trading allegations. That said, for some reason when the Dallas Mavericks owner begins talking about telecom, Internet video and net neutrality, a string of cryptic gibberish begins to spill forth from his head that's entirely detached from the cogent, mortal plane. As the boss of HDNet (now AXS TV), Cuban…
  • After Calling Cord Cutting 'Purely Fiction' For Years, Nielsen Decides Just Maybe It Should Start Tracking Amazon, Netflix Viewing

    Karl Bode
    26 Nov 2014 | 6:14 am
    For years, we've discussed that while cord cutting is a very real (though slow growing) phenomenon, the broadcast and cable industry has done its best to pretend that it doesn't exist. For years, the industry blamed the slowly defecting users on the recession or the sluggish housing market, and when the data failed to support that claim, they began going out of their way to argue that these users were middle-aged losers living in mom's basement and therefore irrelevant. In fact, data shows that cord cutters are usually young, gainfully employed, and highly educated users who make plenty of…

Much of this has been reported on over the past year and a half by reporters in Milwaukee (and investigated by Congress), but it's absolutely worth listening to the details -- which you can do over on the This American Life page (I'd post the embed here, but unfortunately This American Life does not yet appear to support HTTPS, so we can't).

  • Bill Gates Evidently Gets Open Access And Open Data: So What About Open Source?

    Glyn Moody

    One of most important ways of helping to promote open access is for major research organizations to make it a condition of their funding. Two of the pioneers in this respect were the Wellcome Foundation and the Howard Hughes Medical Institute, which made open access a requirement in 2006 and 2007, respectively. Here's another major funder joining the open access club: The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation is committed to information sharing and transparency. We believe that published research resulting from our funding should be promptly and broadly disseminated. We have adopted an Open…

    When it comes to being IP bullies, DC Comics has built quite the reputation for itself. From its taking on the gravestone of a victim of child abuse in the name of protectionism to taking on BBQ joints because of a logo that includes a bat. That last historical example foreshadows this latest news, in which DC Comics decides to take on a Spanish soccer team for having the audacity to include a bat in its logo. According to a report from Yahoo Eurosport, DC Comics is suing the Spanish soccer team Liga Giants Valencia over their logo, which apparently resembles Batman's logo in that it also…

  • Surfer’s Point Half Marathon 2014 Race Report

    17 Nov 2014 | 9:40 pm
    After tackling the XTERRA Point Mugu 18K Trail Race in October, I decided to do the Santa to the Sea Half Marathon in December next. But that left me with two months without races and I got impatient. I was looking through my timeline on the Strava site when I saw that tri-athlete Anthony Grey was in his last weeks of training for the Surfer’s Point Full Marathon. After that I signed up for the half marathon or the race to be held on Nov. 16, 2014. One of the features of the race is that when you cross the finish line you get a nice beer and some real tacos. Who can say no to tacos?
  • XTERRA Point Mugu 18K Trail Race Report – 2014

    12 Oct 2014 | 11:19 pm
    After the last two weeks of abnormally hot weather on the Central Coast, things finally cooled down and my running heated up some at the 2014 XTERRA Point Mugu 18K trail race. The race took place today, October 12, 2014, at Point Mugu State Park in Malibu, just a few miles south of Oxnard. It’s been a year and a half since I first started my fitness journey and about a year since running became a big part of that trek. My first trail race was the XTERRA Malibu Creek 22K which was extremely challenging, so much so that I immediately signed up for the Bulldog 25K which pretty…

    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…

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…

    Google sure messed up the Nexus family’s Android 5.0 rollout, with successive delays and buggy early builds, but somehow, LG seems to be handling the Lollipop optimization and stabilization process better. Although their G3’s pre-installed software looks nothing like stock Android, skinning the newest OS version proved a breeze for the Korean hardware manufacturer.

  • The One Really Important Apple Watch Thing

    Chris Maxcer
    26 Nov 2014 | 5:00 am
    While the cellphone nearly killed the wristwatch, the Apple Watch gizmo actually will revive it. In fact, I think the attention that the Apple Watch will bring to our wrists will spark sales of traditional watches. Why? I believe there is a latent desire to have a wristwatch -- to have the convenience of the time on your wrist without the need to pull out your smartphone and ignore the world around you. I think -- hope -- that the Apple Watch actually will lead people to slow down the movement of hand to pocket and pocket to face.

If you get most of them correct, you probably have only one reason left to read this book: It will challenge some of what you hold valid. However, you most likely will get numerous wrong answers.

    A sophisticated malware program called "Regin" has been used in systematic spying campaigns against a range of international targets since at least 2008, Symantec reported. Regin is a backdoor-type Trojan with a structure that displays a degree of technical competence rarely seen in malware, according to Symantec. "Its elegance is comparable to Stuxnet and [it is] much more elegant than Flame," said Scott Borg, CEO of the U.S. Cyber Consequences Unit. "It's a beautiful piece of architecture."

If your answer to those questions is yes, you may be interested in a bit of jewelry called the "Everykey," by a startup with the same name. Everykey is a wristband that, combined with software and the cloud, removes the need to remember the countless log-in credentials we use every day.

    Well Thanksgiving week is upon us here in the land of stars and stripes, and in anticipation of all the social events soon to besiege us, more than a few Linux bloggers have been practicing keeping their favorite barstools warm down at the blogosphere's Punchy Penguin Saloon. How chilly would those stools get if we were all flitting here and there from this party to that? It would be truly unkind. Much better to stay put and keep to ourselves in a comfortable place where inane small talk is frowned upon.

  • Naim Mu-so review: A pricey wireless speaker that’s a beast in size and in sound

    26 Nov 2014 | 4:11 am
    Naim has been around since the ‘70s, but the high-end audio company has only recently released its first wireless speaker, in the Mu-so. The wait was definitely worth it though, as this huge speaker is not only a beast in size, but it’s also a beast in its sound too, something you’d expect from a speaker costing just under £900. Build and design The Mu-so is pretty damn huge, and very grand-looking. Admittedly, it took two of us to lift it on to a desk, and our commercial manager, Ashley, wasn’t best pleased with how little space he’d been left for his laptop when he came back into…

    James O'Malley

    Yesterday, Apple’s market cap – the number by which companies are valued – briefly passed over $700bn – and at $703bn was apparently the most valuable company in human history. According to The Channel, this means that it surpassed even the GDP of Switzerland – so not even all of the Toblerone in the world could topple Tim Cook’s Empire. Of course, it isn’t entirely as simple as it sounds: Market cap is the share price multiplied by the number of shares, and in any case due to economic factors like inflation, the biggest company is always going to be…

  • MRAM-based magnetic sensors to help flexible OLED image quality

    24 Nov 2014 | 2:07 am
    MRAM developer Crocus Technology developed a new MRAM-based magnetic sensor that can be used to detect the shape and bendability of flexible displays. The idea is that you place a sensor every 5 cm or so (depending on the display size and bending radius) and this allows you to determine whether the display is bent and in which way.A flexible sensor such as this can be used to correct the image that gets deformed when bent. It can also be used potentially for UI purposes - similar to Nokia's Kinetic prototype phone shown in 2011.Read more about MRAM-based magnetic sensors to help flexible OLED…

  • More details on TDK's new 8Mb STT-MRAM prototype

    10 Oct 2014 | 11:10 pm
    A few days ago I reported that TDK will show a new STT-MRAM prototype, and now we have some more information and a couple of photos of the new test chip. TDK is showing their first STT-MRAM chip, a 8Mb device, produced on a 8" silicon substrate.  This is the first time TDK exposed their STT-MRAM technology. Those MRAM chips were produced by TDK's Headway Technologies. TDK will not mass poroduce MRAM chips themselves but rather seek a chip-making partner to produce them. But this may take a while: TDK says it could be up to 10 years before the technology matures (earlier reports said TDK…

The most rewarding is a cross-functional systems approach that balances quality activities to achieve product performance requirements and meeting internal and external customer requirements (needs & wants).

    Thanksgiving is a time for gratitude; for startup founders, that means saying thank you to the team who believes in you, the customers who support you, and the family members who put up with it all. But let’s face it: there’s a lot about startup life to not be thankful for. Although there’s no use in complaining and we all know the ups and downs are part of the journey, it’s also true that entrepreneurship comes with a lot of hassles – and the way to mentally prepare for them is to face them head on, not pretend it’s all exciting coding marathons punctuated by delicious beer…

Given recent information, the former is more likely.

The social media network’s data scientists shared a study that shows the most-praised subjects within posts on the site. The most popular topics are unsurprising. On the whole, Americans thanked friends, family, and health, but when Facebook broke down its data state-by-state, a few interesting trends emerged.

Unfortunately, because churches seem to be so late to the Instagram game, I see many organizations that just…

I’ll take a commercial with a story anytime over a lame attempt to be funny. That being said, I have no idea what this commercial is for. I’m guessing it’s not a smartphone. While this commercial is a tad too cheesy, it does mirror behavior that isn’t too far-fetched. I’ve seen parents do similar things! At the core, the message is true.

This remarkable finding applies not only to particles and waves, but also to crawling ants or drunken sailors hitting streetlamps.

What?! Why aren’t you a VCP? This is a problem which plagues many an Admin who will often be multi-skilled and can justify the $225 price-tag to take the exam but whose employer will NOT pay for you to be away from the office, nor the hefty price tag often associated with the VCP course itself.  Yea, we get that, so what?!

  • Why Are So Many Video Games Broken At Launch?

    26 Nov 2014 | 7:11 am
    Why are so many video games broken at launch? Because consumers put up with it. Maybe these companies would pay attention if people started voting with their wallets. Even after installing Ubisoft's "day one" patch, we encountered extreme drops in frame rate -- read: low teens -- and main story missions with broken objectives (forcing a manual reset). The game's developer/publisher went as far as to create a live update website to keep owners updated on Unity's ongoing patch work. Some folks are experiencing outright game crashes, and Ubisoft has a totally insane fix that involves…
  • Digital Copyright Preventing Car Mods?

    26 Nov 2014 | 6:11 am
    This is just stupid. I was under the impression that, when you buy a car, it is yours and you can do with it as you please. In a development that illustrates just how much cars have become mobile computers on wheels, a privacy group is warning mechanics and car enthusiasts that tinkering with the computers that run dozens of vehicle components, without a manufacturer's approval, may constitute a copyright violation.

  • One small step for Robotkind

    13 Nov 2014 | 12:50 am
    Take me to your re-charging unit Like many others I was constantly checking the BBC livefeed and ESA reports yesterday as Philae landed. My interest is twofold (well threefold, but we will get to that): - Firstly, exploration of space is always fascinating and who knows what we will learn from this (It's quite scary the number of people arguing this is a a waste of money!) - Secondly, it's another episode in the application of the advances in modern Robotics - and for a good, not a dystopian, outcome. The potential of robotics is well showcased here - the downside (surveillance by Philae's…

    13 Oct 2014 | 6:53 am
    Two things on the Broadstuff Towers spike, both to so with putting a sock over your smartphone: Firstly, Yondr, for the text-addicted: Two weeks ago, I heard about a new company called Yondr that was making lightweight smartphone socks-with-locks that prevent the smartphone's user from accessing the device during a concert, movie, or party. ...... Preventing fans from accessing their phones during a show might seem like an extraordinary step, especially in tech-centric San Francisco.

    8 Oct 2014 | 9:25 am
    Fascinating article on Pando Daily about how the VC community has moved from funding high potential people to funding Assholes: Here’s the problem. Every venture capitalist, in every interview they’ve ever done will tell you the same casual lie: That they invest in people first and ideas second. They’ll tell you they invest only in people they’d want to work with. They’ll tell you that they have the luxury to say no to companies that don’t do things in line with the way they like to work, the way they like to treat people. You don’t have to look too far into this year’s…

    It's always fun to look at all the various predictions of the Next New Things (given they vary quite widely by predictor, by year - us being no exception). Anyway, here are Gartners for the next few years (abridged by Broadstuff) 1) By 2018, digital business will require 50 percent less business process workers and 500 percent more key digital business jobs, compared with traditional models. Near-Term Flag: By year-end 2016, 50 percent of digital transformation initiatives will be unmanageable due to lack of portfolio management skills, leading to a measurable negative lost market share. 2)…

    21 Nov 2014 | 1:06 am
    Consumer electronic giants Google and Apple have now introduced a new encryption technology in their smartphones in an attempt to protect the privacy of their users. This new encryption technology makes it almost impossible for external entities to access and decipher sensitive information, this includes picture, text messages and e-mails. While this may come as good news to users, the U.S Department Of Justice has taken a strong stand against this level of encryption. The DOJ has sent notice’s to Google and Apple regarding this tech. The DOJ argues that this encryption is a step in the…

    The Indian Post is the world’s largest postal network with 1.55 lakh registered post offices. In the recent past, the Indian post had faced a significant decline in terms of volume of business. This was primarily due to the Internet. The internet rendered the traditional concept of writing letters almost obsolete. However, the same internet has now created a business opportunity that has been valued at almost 9 billion dollars for the same sector it almost destroyed a few years ago. This opportunity has come in the form of “last mile” delivery for the booming e-commerce…

  • Mark Cuban Again Illustrates He Has No Idea What Net Neutrality Is Or Why It's Important

    Karl Bode
    26 Nov 2014 | 8:21 am
    To be very clear, there are some subjects Mark Cuban has a very good understanding of, ranging from his support of patent reform and his helpful goal of improving antiquated film release windows to highlighting the SEC's disdain for the 14th and 4th Amendments during his fight over insider trading allegations. That said, for some reason when the Dallas Mavericks owner begins talking about telecom, Internet video and net neutrality, a string of cryptic gibberish begins to spill forth from his head that's entirely detached from the cogent, mortal plane. As the boss of HDNet (now AXS TV), Cuban…
  • After Calling Cord Cutting 'Purely Fiction' For Years, Nielsen Decides Just Maybe It Should Start Tracking Amazon, Netflix Viewing

    Karl Bode
    26 Nov 2014 | 6:14 am
    For years, we've discussed that while cord cutting is a very real (though slow growing) phenomenon, the broadcast and cable industry has done its best to pretend that it doesn't exist. For years, the industry blamed the slowly defecting users on the recession or the sluggish housing market, and when the data failed to support that claim, they began going out of their way to argue that these users were middle-aged losers living in mom's basement and therefore irrelevant. In fact, data shows that cord cutters are usually young, gainfully employed, and highly educated users who make plenty of…
  • WTF ATF: The ATF's Fake Retail Stores, Bad Behavior... And Why It Only Came Out Because They Failed To Pay Rent

    Mike Masnick

    This past week, on This American Life, the first 20 minutes or so are the incredible story of just how screwed up the ATF continues to be (the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms). Much of this has been reported on over the past year and a half by reporters in Milwaukee (and investigated by Congress), but it's absolutely worth listening to the details -- which you can do over on the This American Life page (I'd post the embed here, but unfortunately This American Life does not yet appear to support HTTPS, so we can't). The story is all kinds of stunning, including the insane fact that…
  • Bill Gates Evidently Gets Open Access And Open Data: So What About Open Source?

    Glyn Moody
    26 Nov 2014 | 1:04 am
    One of most important ways of helping to promote open access is for major research organizations to make it a condition of their funding. Two of the pioneers in this respect were the Wellcome Foundation and the Howard Hughes Medical Institute, which made open access a requirement in 2006 and 2007, respectively. Here's another major funder joining the open access club: The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation is committed to information sharing and transparency. We believe that published research resulting from our funding should be promptly and broadly disseminated. We have adopted an Open…
  • DC Comics Going After A Spanish Soccer Club With A Bat In Its Logo For Some Reason

    Timothy Geigner
    25 Nov 2014 | 9:02 pm
    When it comes to being IP bullies, DC Comics has built quite the reputation for itself. From its taking on the gravestone of a victim of child abuse in the name of protectionism to taking on BBQ joints because of a logo that includes a bat. That last historical example foreshadows this latest news, in which DC Comics decides to take on a Spanish soccer team for having the audacity to include a bat in its logo. According to a report from Yahoo Eurosport, DC Comics is suing the Spanish soccer team Liga Giants Valencia over their logo, which apparently resembles Batman's logo in that it also…

  • Apple could ditch Google for Bing or Yahoo next year

    25 Nov 2014 | 3:38 pm
    Google risks losing its spot as the default search provider in Apple's Safari browser next year, according to a report from The Information. The latest extension of a deal that's put Google Search in the hands of iPhone owners since 2007 is set to expire in 2015, and Mountain View rivals Microsoft and Yahoo are already making a case for change with Apple's leadership. Per the report, each company has pitched Apple SVP Eddy Cue on the idea of replacing Google as the default iOS search provider; Microsoft wants Bing to be the default option out of the box, and Yahoo is vying for the same spot.
  • God's lonely programmer

    25 Nov 2014 | 12:49 pm
    TempleOS is more than an exercise in retro computing, or a hobbyist's space for programming close to the bare metal. It's the brainchild - perhaps the life's work - of 44-year-old Terry Davis, the founder and sole employee of Trivial Solutions. For more than a decade Davis has worked on it; today, TempleOS is 121,176 lines of code, which puts it on par with Photoshop 1.0. (By comparison, Windows 7, a full-fledged modern operating system designed to be everything to everyone, filled with decades of cruft, is ​about 40 million lines.)

Work is underway on the remaining kernel drivers, and on userland support. This project's overall goal is to bring FreeBSD/arm64 to a Tier-1 status, including release…
  • WSJ: Galaxy S5 sales 40 percent below Samsung's expectations

    24 Nov 2014 | 4:24 pm
    Samsung's mobile business has been having a rough year - it's still one of the biggest and most profitable players in the Android ecosystem, but profits are down. That can be attributed at least in part to lower than expected sales of the company's flagship Galaxy S5. The Wall Street Journal reports that Samsung increased production by 20 percent relative to last year's Galaxy S4, but that it actually sold 40 percent less than it expected to. The S4 sold around 16 million phones in its first three months on the market, compared to just 12 million for the S5. Samsung was becoming far too…
  • The final countdown for NPAPI in Chrome

    24 Nov 2014 | 11:43 am
    Currently Chrome supports NPAPI plugins, but they are blocked by default unless the user chooses to allow them for specific sites (via the page action UI). A small number of the most popular plugins are whitelisted and allowed by default. In January 2015 we will remove the whitelist, meaning all plugins will be blocked by default. In April 2015 NPAPI support will be disabled by default in Chrome and we will unpublish extensions requiring NPAPI plugins from the Chrome Web Store. Although plugin vendors are working hard to move to alternate technologies, a small number of users still rely on…

  • Let's Encrypt - Free, Automated, and Open SSL Certification Service

    With so much of personal and sensitive information flowing through internet which can be easily tapped into, end-to-end encryption should be the default mode of online communication. But to achieve that website owners not only need to purchase SSL certificates from verified registry's but also have to install(takes 2-3 hours), and manage them which makes them keep using HTTP instead of HTTPS. Let’s Encrypt is all set to change that, the new "free certificate authority" lets everyone be up and running with basic server certificates for their domains through a simple one-click process.

    (See Update) November 14, 2014, via Reuters: Of 16 Glass app makers contacted by Reuters, nine said that they had stopped work on their projects or abandoned them, mostly because of the lack of customers or limitations of the device. Three more have switched to developing for business, leaving behind consumer projects. Last year, I observed in a post–one that included an email exchange  with Don Norman of Nielson-Norman and author of The Design of Everyday Things–that I believed the product release of Google Glass was bungled by Google.

    3 Nov 2014 | 6:26 pm
    First: A Flashback to the year 2006 when I blogged all year about stories I’d see regarding flying cars. The truth is, you could pick out any year and read just as many articles about people who are going to start having a commercial version of a flying car next July. For some reason, next July is always far enough in the future so reporters will forget to check back in. Anyway, I just saw this and thought it was too 2006 to pass up.

    1 Nov 2014 | 7:06 am
    In the olden days of print, there was a term called “orphan ” that referred to a headline or paragraph with a lonely word dangling on a line by itself. The copy editor would rewrite it “to get rid of the orphan.” (For a discussion of widows and orphans, see: Today, when we all read our news on various size screens on sites with “responsive design,” the headline length is not measured by “size” but by its relationship to the width of a container that I’ll just call “a column” (i.e., 100% of…

That’s because Google is now clearly marking websites (screenshot) in mobile search results that it considers mobile friendly and if that tag isn’t getting displayed around your content, your website may see a drop in mobile traffic.

    Let me explain, one trend being thrown around in the industry to combat the data storage issue is the idea of “data lakes” — a repository where you can store any and all data in its original source and then figure out what to do with it later. That sounds like basements across the country! With such an unstructured environment, though, companies are still struggling with the hardware and software needed to process everything and make it possible to work across systems, apps, infrastructures, etc. This means that while we may not quite be living in the age of “data lakes,” we might…

    NoSQL databases are all the rage these days. A recent article by Matt Asay at InfoWorld argues that though Hadoop gets all of the credit for big data’s popularity, it’s actually NoSQL databases that are more often deployed. In fact, “while shopping for a Hadoop vendor is relatively straightforward, picking a NoSQL database is anything but. There are, after all, in excess of 100 NoSQL databases.” Matt lists MongoDB, HBase and Cassandra as three NoSQL databases to watch.

They have weathered many storms and invested in several businesses ranging from rubber and forestry, to telephone systems and mobile phones.

Benefits of this tool could be harnessed by large companies with good effect. It has the potential to improve the efficiency of the company and to save lots of money spent on travelling.

    Anshel Sag
    25 Nov 2014 | 6:36 pm
    Yes, you heard that right. Newegg’s Black November (because Black Friday and Cyber Monday aren’t enough) has given us a pretty awesome deal. This deal is for an Acer B286HK 28″ 4K monitor that can display 4K video at 60 FPS and does it over DisplayPort 1.2. This monitor’s original price was $699, which isn’t that bad for a 4K monitor, but there are others out there with arguably better panels and design than the Acer at that price. However, at $349, there is no monitor on earth that can compete with a 28″ 4K monitor at that price. In fact, someone recently…

    I’ve traveled religiously with an Apple AirPort Express Base Station for years. It’s portable, it’s fast, and pain free in terms of setup. It just works. However, there’s one thing that made me look for a new solution. More and more hotel rooms and locations that I’m in on the road are now WiFi Only, meaning that newer hotel rooms are no longer equipped with wired ethernet jacks. Even those rooms that do have the wired ethernet ports are often disconnected. Sure I could just connect my devices to the WiFi network offered but that offers a set of challenges that I…

    Even when you have meetings all day… Even when you’re at a trade show… Even when you’re on the road, calling on one customer after another… Even when you’re on long, highly-productive conference calls (ha!)… …Take one communication action per day, and insist that your staff and colleagues each do the same. In 15 minutes or less (but often in 90 seconds), you can tell somebody who can buy from you about how they’d improve if they do so. Send an email. Write a hand-written note. At a trade show, tell a prospect about a customer like them. If…

    I was meeting with a new client last week to introduce our project to the top leadership team. In the room were about a dozen people: presidents, along with a number of heads of sales and customer service departments (my work focuses on changing the thinking and behavior of customer-facing staff). As a part of his opening remarks, my client, a co-owner of the company, said “more than anything, this work is positive.” Indeed, almost all of us lose sight of the enormous positive impact of our work. We improve lives and companies, but we spend our days responding to customer…
  • Boldness

    Alex Goldfayn
    10 Nov 2014 | 1:40 pm
    Most people spend their work days putting out fires, which, by definition, is reactive effort. It also tends to be the work of dealing with unhappy customers — who are complaining about an incorrect order, a delayed delivery, or simply demanding to have your product or service yesterday. When we spend our days, and years, this way, we begin to believe all of our customers are unhappy. This could not be farther from the truth. Think about your customers: most them have been with you for years. Decades maybe. They stay with you, because they are happy with you. If I were to ask your…

    In the last week, I’ve delivered six workshops and keynote speeches in Denver, Houston, Chicago, and Las Vegas. During the portion of my sessions that covered communicating (not just collecting) testimonials, several people had this rather common resistance: “I’m not going to share my customers’ names so that my competition can steal them.” One guy who runs an eight-figure distributorship actually said to me, “You need to understand that our industry is different.” Listen to me carefully: No, it’s not.

But many others deserve for your company to grow as well: Your existing customers deserve to do business with a thriving, successful firm. Your staff and colleagues, who you’re with on the front lines every day, deserve to work for a flourishing, growing company. Your family certainly deserves that your company sells more, so that all of you can live better. Your prospects deserve to benefit…

While Mahone’s fans are no doubt dancing with glee that their idol is single again, it’s a bit sad that these two broke up less than one month after Cabello made their relationship public.

When the device was launched, a few questions were asked of Motorola and Google about the decision to not include an LED light for notification alerts.

    28 Aug 2014 | 11:14 am
    The first thing that comes to mind when you read wireless charging is that of a phone magically charging the moment you’re in a particular zone; just like Wi-Fi. Sadly that’s not how wireless charging works in the present day. You need a charging base on which you need to place a wireless charging compatible phone and it starts charging. It works on the principle of inductive charging — where in the charging base and the phone has coils to transmit energy without having to connect any cable to the phone. Quite a lot of manufacturers attempted to crack the market and introduce…

Even if you manage to save some of those DVDs on to your hard drive (which will not be an easy task, given that most of the movies come in copy-protected DVDs now-a-days), playing them on your iOS devices via iTunes may not be as easy because of the number of tracks, sub-title files and folder structure of the DVD.

Its share in the US search market is about 67%, making it by far the most preferred search engine in the country. So is it within the member countries of the European Union; however, its share in the European search market is 90%. The company’s apparent monopoly in the market has raised antagonism among its European competitors and consequently the European Parliament is looking to split up Google through a proposal dubbed as “unbundling”.

    US District Judge (New York) Denise Cote perceives it as fair, reasonable and adequate; so, Apple’s $450 million eBook settlement is finally approved by court. The settlement agreement was approved by the court on Friday against a lawsuit that claims that Apple inappropriately raised eBook prices after conspiring with five publishers. The appropriation of $450 million directs Apple to pay $400 million to 23 million victims of beefed up eBook prices and $50 million to their lawyers. That leaves about $17.39 for each consumer; however, it is unknown what amount of money each of their lawyers…

Currently a few of these robots are engaged in security duties in and around Microsoft premises in Silicon Valley. The security guard robots are unarmed, but come equipped with a remarkable security gadget that tracks security threats and facilitate deployment of human security guards (armed with weapons) at the scene.

      by Frédéric Filloux From valuations to management cultures, the gap between legacy media companies and digital natives ones seems to widen. The chart below maps the issues and shows where efforts should focus.  At conferences and workshops in Estonia, Spain or in the US, most discussions I recently had ended up zeroing on the cultural divide between legacy media and internet natives. About fifteen years into the digital wave, tectonic plates seems to drift more apart that ever. On one side, most media brands — the surviving ones — are still struggling with an endless…

      by Jean-Louis Gassée Every generation has its high tech storytellers, pundits who ‘understand’ why products and companies succeed and why they fail. And each next generation tosses out the stories of their elders. Perhaps it’s time to dispense with “Disruption”. “I’m never wrong.” Thus spake an East Coast academic, who, in the mid- to late-eighties, parlayed his position into a consulting money pump. He advised — terrorized, actually — big company CEOs with vivid descriptions of their impending failure, and then offered them salvation if they followed his advice.

MCX, a competing solution that faces more challenges than Apple Pay, helps shed light on the problem. Apple Pay was announced on September 9th with the new iPhone 6, and rolled out on October 20th.

In this first of a two-part Monday Note, I offer a look at the obstacles and developments that preceded the Apple Pay launch. When I landed in Cupertino in 1985, I was shocked, shocked to find that so much gambling was going on in here. But it wasn’t the Rick’s Café Américain kind of gambling, it was the just-as-chancy use of plastic: Colleagues would heedlessly offer their credit card numbers to merchants over the phone; serious, disciplined executives would hand their AmEx…

    26 Nov 2014 | 7:30 am
    It’s been a rough few months for the embattled e-cigarette industry. Although intended to be a safer alternative to tobacco, the devices have been under attack by regulators in the US and Europe who have expressed health concerns about the nicotine-enriched liquid used. And now, there’s a new worry surrounding them that nobody expected. Your e-cigarette might be harmful to your computer’s health. Most electronic cigarettes contain a rechargeable lithium-ion battery which is replenished via a USB connection. That could be from a wall-socket, or, critically, from a computer.

    At the end of October 2014, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) released the 2015 Medicare Physician Fee Schedule (PFS), which updates payment policies and payment rates for services provided to Medicare beneficiaries by physicians and other practitioners. The main provision of this final rule is that physician payment rates will be reduced by 21.2 percent after March 2015. So, when the Protecting Access to Medicare Act of 2014 signed by the President (which prohibited a reduction in the PFS rates from January through March 2015) expires, physicians will see a large…

    If you are anything like me then you are regularly taking screenshots to share online. There are many different ways to do this but they all have their limitations. I don't like limits and I do like speed and to be in control of my own data. In my last post I explained that I have purchased a funky domain name and set it up with YOURLS so that I can create and manage my own short url service. My next task was to find a way to use this domain to quickly and easily share my screenshots. The requirements were quite simple but actually hard to resolve: take screenshots anywhere not…
  • Short and sweet

    23 Nov 2014 | 5:25 pm
    I like short urls (shurls). I like being able to create memorable links to anything on the internet. I like being able to see statistics on who else has followed the link. There are many online services that offer this but when you are not in control of your own data you can get burned and I got burned badly when a short url service stopped working a while back and I lost all those saved urls. So I stopped creating shurls and I missed it. During the xmas holidays last year I was reviewing a list of domains that I owned to see if I really needed them all. (Lots of good ideas - not enough…

  • Which font should I use?

    I like fonts. I like to use different fonts. I have downloaded lots of fonts for different projects. Each time I start a new project I waste lots of time looking for the "perfect" font. The problem is that I have forgotten what all of the fonts I already have look like so finding the right font is a slow and frustrating process. On my Mac I have fontbook which catalogs all my fonts and lets me quickly see the alphabet in that font but that is just not good enough. There are two things it doesn't do which I really miss. It doesn't show me my custom text string in the selected font. (Too many…

In addition, Macs are Unix-based, and Unix has a number of built-in security features that help to protect your Mac. Apple also includes several security features to stop attacks on the Mac system. For example, Gatekeeper blocks software that hasn’t been digitally signed and approved by Apple. But just…

These people are the antithesis of cybercriminals; they spend their energy trying to figure out ways to make our data safer. They create best practices for providing security assurance within cloud computing, or in this case, they determine how a cloud environment can be used to enhance and scale authentication for a service that can be cloud-based or private data center-based.

Some, like Damballa Failsafe, are network-based, vigilantly watching packets across the network and looking for indications of undesirable activities/behaviors and content.  Others are host-based, like Bit9 + Carbon Black, using an agent on the endpoint, to persistently defend the endpoint as a beachhead against undesired, malicious processes trying to execute. Each has its use cases and strong points, but together they provide a significantly broader perspective and…

For those of you not in the tech industry, spelunking, or the act of exploring caves, may come to mind. The theme of the conference was not cave exploration, but data exploration; however, the analogy of cave exploration actually aligns very well. “Splunkers” are diving into their data, delving deep into places that many have never explored before. Each of them finding new and cool ways to use the data that they have been…
  • Network Management: Still a ‘Must-Have’ for Enterprise IT

    Jim Frey

    It’s sometimes difficult to differentiate between hype and reality when it comes to topics such as cloud, ITaaS, SDN, DevOps, hybrid this and hybrid that. But there are a few certainties in the IT universe and one of them is that IT doesn’t function if all of the pieces can’t talk to one another, and that means the network needs to be rock solid. Some of that is under the control of enterprise IT teams as internal network infrastructure, but some of it isn’t, such as WAN or Internet. Because connectivity is so essential, no one questions the need for making sure the network is healthy…

First off, there weren’t a lot of net new things being introduced, other than some roadmaps shared under NDA and a truly cool multi-station mobile work experience demo. But that’s ok.  Too often, tech companies feel compelled to forever be pushing “something new,” when in reality IT pros need vendors to stick to…

Fitbit, who first launched back on October 2007, is closing in on 70 percent of the market with the number two player sitting down in the teens. The stats by themselves may show Fitbit as being a dominant player, but that doesn't necessarily mean a Fitbit branded tracker will be the best option for everyone. That being said,…

Unfortunately, when talking to marketing managers I often hear they don’t know whether their investment really paid off. Basically this means it probably didn’t or they just don’t have any idea. Fact is that many marketing managers don’t know how to value their social media investment. They are happy that they managed to increase their follower base, but don’t know if this had any impact on their brand awareness, engagement, sales results, etc. The…

Except for the literature enthusiast, most people would rather watch the movie than read the book. And even those who would read the book would rather watch the news than read a newspaper.

That being said, blogs are still very popular and words are still necessary, even if it is only to accompany the video.

    It is a good idea to be in class and learn from a teacher but the downside of the current schooling system is that each teacher has to deal with too many students. On average there are 20 students in each class and this increases the chance that, by the end of the teaching session, some still don’t get the point that the teacher was trying to put across. To remediate to the problem enunciated, some students are advised to take private tutors. Up to now, nothing can beat a one-on-one form of teaching.

    Paul Crowe

    Our overnight idea screening tool, Ideas Overnight, has become a big hit with our clients. Since launching in March of 2014, over 30 clients in the US have used the tool to expedite and improve their innovation process. Interestingly, we still receive the occasional question of whether or not idea screening is a “validated” tool. Clients who aren’t quantitatively screening their ideas want to know whether or not idea screening can predict later concept scores (and, by extension, success in the market). I’ll admit that I have often taken this for granted as the typical non-quantitative…

    In my day-to-day work focusing on product development and product testing related issues, it’s always interesting to see that some of the seemingly most basic questions are the ones that are the most difficult. One of the struggles I’ve witnessed most recently is the struggle to identify the “right” competitive benchmark, whether the objective is to innovate or renovate. There are numerous trends impacting or fundamentally changing our ability to identify that one key competitor. I was reminded of this when I was reading about McDonald’s Q3 performance just last week, which saw a…

Truth be told, the level of information obtained from diaries is invaluable as it allows for an intimate glimpse into not only why respondents rate products and services the way they do, but also how those ratings might influence purchase decisions in the future. But, admittedly, capturing diary insights can be a bit cumbersome. Respondents are typically asked to record their behaviors and…

You maybe try a new brand of clothing, one that looks the same as the old brand. You vow to raise your hand more in class, but not enough to become the teacher’s pet. This came to mind when we were discussing the “Share a Coke” campaign (the one where they put people’s names and cutesy words like “Legend” and “BFF” and all kinds of things that grownups never say to one another on the cans…

The implications of high-speed capacity expansion are high fixed costs, which would thus result in a plunge in profit margin. It is projected that the revenue of INTERFLEX, a leading South Korean FPCB company, would tumble by 50%, and its operating margin would record a 27% loss in 2014 in contrast to no-profit-no-loss in 2013. Additionally, affected by the order shift of Apple, the company has hardly received any orders from Apple in 2014.

    15 Nov 2014 | 9:18 am
    If you need a cheap wireless headset for your computer, the Logitech H600 Wireless headset might be the right one for you. I recently bought this headset and why not write a review about it. To be honest, this is no high-end headset at all, but that was not what I was looking for. However, it is a good headset for the price. It is very light and easy to use. Put the Nano receiver in an available USB port and let Windows find the device. I you are looking for a high-end headset for listening to great music this is not the one. If you on the other hand are looking for a good cheap wireless…

  • 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…

    Recently, one of our writers cycled into Saltillo, Mexico, a town known for its museums, cowboys, gorditas and pan de pulque, a sweet bread made with fermented agave cactus. He wanted to get to a restaurant he had seen earlier in the day, but in the bustling historic downtown he had no idea where to find it. He entered the restaurant’s exact name into Apple Maps and waited for it to show up. Apple referred him to a cafe in San Francisco. Later, in the town of Cedral, he tried a simpler search: “hotels in Cedral.” Despite detecting his exact location in Cedral, Mexico, Apple Maps offered…
  • So, You Want to Rank on Bing (Not Just Google)

    Dave Paul
    25 Nov 2014 | 9:14 am
    Microsoft and Yahoo both use search results provided by Bing. Together, nearly 1 in 3 U.S. searches is handled by Bing—and a new contract with Firefox  could put that number even higher. Yet “Google” and “search” remain synonyms for many of us, and most SEO guides speak only of “ranking with Google” as if that’s all that matters. Is it?   The answer is definitely no. While some SEO tactics will work well with either search engine, the results that make the top page on the two are different, often with less than half of the same domains achieving the top spots. That’s…
  • 5 Internet Marketing Tips for Black Friday

    Dave Paul
    24 Nov 2014 | 7:59 am
    Black Friday is the biggest shopping day of the year and conjures images of decorated store windows, packed shopping malls, and families raiding department stores for one-day specials. But Black Friday doesn’t take place only in the world of physical retail. Internet marketing both supports storefront specials and offers an alternative for those who would rather avoid the crowds. Here are five ways you can make sure your online presence fuels your holiday sales—and doesn’t leave you floundering behind your competitors.   It’s time for a social media blitz: Whether you have 5,000…
  • Yahoo Stole Google’s Firefox Contract, but Bing Is the Real Winner

    Dave Paul
    21 Nov 2014 | 12:57 pm
    How often do you type a search into that little bar on the top of your browser? For most of us, the answer is “often”—and probably at least once within the past 15 minutes. In the age of instant gratification, users are less and less likely to navigate to a search website, and more likely to use the built-in functionality of their browser. That means that a contract won by Yahoo this week is a big deal. Under the contract, Yahoo will become the default search engine for Mozilla Firefox in the U.S. starting in December. Firefox is the third-biggest web browser by market share. This would…

    Google’s has finally retired its “carousel” of hotel listings in search results, and the feature that replaces it has implications for businesses of all kinds, not just the hospitality industry. For some time now, searching for accommodations—like “Atlanta hotels”—would bring not just the normal search results, but a horizontal slider of listings showing pictures, reviews and ratings (the carousel). Clicking on any of these would bring up an expanded listing in the knowledge panel on the right-hand side of the screen, including an option to instantly book a room at that…

On this matter, the other days I was browsing through some reviews to find out more about my latest favorite game, Dark Souls 2 which by the way, it rocks. But, I'm not making video games reviews here. The thing is that while checking the Gamespot review, I noticed a very nice and original loader somehow inspired by the above tagline.

    26 Nov 2014 | 8:40 am
    Apple's stock is once again on a tear.  It's up 48% this year, surging past a $700 billion valuation.  It's a stunning reversal for the company. In April 2013, Wall Street had given up on Apple. The stock was less than half what it trades for today. People thought the iPhone was done. They thought Apple was doomed. The New York Times was comparing Tim Cook to Steve Ballmer.  Today, all that seems preposterous. The iPhone 6 is a blockbuster hit. On its most recent earnings call, Apple said it was selling every single iPhone 6 it can make. And Apple can make a lot of iPhones. The…

But social still has a potent influence on consumers' decisions further along the “purchase funnel.” Evidence shows that paid and organic posts on social platforms drive sales completed online and offline later on.  In a new report from BI Intelligence we break down how social media is impacting retail sales throughout the purchase process — whether a social media user clicks directly…

A spokesperson for Ubisoft told BBC,”We are working to adapt our services and communications with consumers accordingly, both by changing the way we work with reviewers and by offering customers open betas or other early access to some games, all so that they have the information they need and want.” The issue arrived when Ubisoft of having an anti-consumer approach for having an embargo to be lifted for reviews after 17 hours since the…

    The Sorcerer
    13 Nov 2014 | 8:37 pm
    AMD is doing what it does best that puts pressure over its competitors in some form- cost of the actual product and price cuts. Earlier, it was reported that AMD is working to reduce the price for its R9 290 GPUs. Now its also reported that according to AMD, FreeSync enabled displays will cost $100 lesser than Nvidia G-Sync enabled panels. AMD’s scientist Richard Huddy gave a presentation about its FreeSync implementation. Few key reasons are that FreeSync is based on open-end standards, and unlike G-Sync, it doesn’t need any special hardware that adds the cost of the final…

    This blog may not have the massive traffic it once had, I’m still perpetually working on it, the few visitors who happen to drop by and spend some time do so over an insecure HTTP channel. With the rise of online attacks, where small websites are being used to attack bigger and more valuable online properties, there is a growing consensus that every website owner, publisher or operator join hands in making the internet a more secure place. We can do that by using secure HTTP connections or serving their websites over HTTPS. Here’s a list of 9 good reasons why we should embrace…

    22 Sep 2014 | 11:39 pm
    If we continue to tolerate this form of “entertainment”, before we know it, our society would be watching live porn right before their eyes and be so completely blinded and numbed by the media to see it as harmless amusement. Heck, it’s happening now—a lot of people aren’t even able to tell what can harm us as a society with the kind of sex-obsessed culture we are creating. We’re becoming more and more reckless, not considering the values we impart to the youth who will be left to run this world when the future comes. Is this what marketing has come to?

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.

    26 Nov 2014 | 7:30 am
    It’s been a rough few months for the embattled e-cigarette industry. Although intended to be a safer alternative to tobacco, the devices have been under attack by regulators in the US and Europe who have expressed health concerns about the nicotine-enriched liquid used. And now, there’s a new worry surrounding them that nobody expected. Your e-cigarette might be harmful to your computer’s health. Most electronic cigarettes contain a rechargeable lithium-ion battery which is replenished via a USB connection. That could be from a wall-socket, or, critically, from a computer.

    Windows has all sorts of hidden little utilities that let you configure and modify system settings not normally visible in areas like the Control Panel. One of my favorite tools that has been around since Windows 98 is MSCONFIG. It basically stands for Microsoft System Configuration and is obviously used to configure various settings. In this article, I’ll show you how to access MSCONFIG and how to use it. Let’s start off by opening MSCONFIG on Windows 7.

You can do this in one of two directions: either access Mac files from a Windows PC or access Windows files from a Mac.

Someone sent me a large number of files, but for some strange reason, they had no file extension, even though they were images! Once I added the .JPG extension to the end of the file, I was able to open the images. There are many other reasons why you may need to rename file extensions, so I’ll show you how you can change them one at a time if you have a small number of files or batch rename file extensions if you have lots of files.

I checked out Windows Movie Maker, which has the ability to overlay text on video, but the feature set was very poor and it was nearly impossible to control where the subtitles showed up, for how long, and in what kind of format. Another problem with Windows Movie Maker is that you can’t create subtitles that show up as an option in DVD players; it’s either always there or not. After doing some research, I found that the…

    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.

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.

    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…

  • Should You Back Up Physically or On The Cloud?

    Miguel Leiva-Gomez
    24 Nov 2014 | 4:25 pm
    The cloud has gotten massive since it first started becoming a phenomenon. In particular, cloud storage seems to be the most interesting (and fastest-growing) service for both the consumer and business markets. As each year passes, bandwidth just keeps getting cheaper. This makes cloud-based storage space more accessible, in some cases, than buying a new hard drive for some people. For those of us who still work heavily with personal computers, though, the external hard drive will always be an option. This leads us to one question: Which one is better?

    Protestors in Ferguson, Missouri, after the Monday evening announcement of no charges over a teenager's killing. EPA/Tannen MauryThe announcement Monday evening in the US that there would be no charges against a policeman over the shooting of a teenager is puzzling and already the target of critique. It’s not just the decision itself that’s being questioned, but the timing of the announcement. Why in the evening, at 9pm local time? And did the darkness play any role in the rioting in Ferguson, Missouri, that followed the announcement? Racial tensions Racially-charged violent protests…

Even Britain, a nation famous for its fondness for tea, has in recent years seen a dramatic rise in its coffee consumption, with an estimated 70 million cups drunk each day.

    When the sun sets on Patriot, what will spy agencies do? Roving Eye 365/Flickr, CC BYLast week a proposal called the Freedom Act was defeated in the US Senate. The Freedom Act was to restrict whole-of-population collection of communications data which is currently permitted under the Patriot Act, which was enacted after 9/11, until June 2015. The Freedom Act, were it passed, would have extended the data gathering aspect of the Patriot Act to the end of 2017. So what will happen to mass data collection when the Patriot Act expires in six months – and will there be any effects in Australia?

    Sony has been hit with an order to issue partial refunds to customers who bought PlayStation Vita consoles. The Federal Trade Commission found that the company had produced false advertising for the handheld console which suggested that the PS Vita had certain features when in fact it did not. Anyone who bought the console before June 1 2012 is entitled to either $25 cash or credit, or a $50 voucher. Adverts for the three year old console suggested that players could start a game on a PS3 and pick up from where they left off on a PS Vita console. This feature was only supported by a small…

It may not had curated lists and bundles by Apple, in-app purchases, and Health Kit integraded apps, but its amount of available apps to download was miniscule compared to today (150,000 v 1.2 million.) Fast forward to 2014, newcomers in the the iOS world (many friends of mine included) are overwhelmed by the App Store’s vastness and its inadequacy to expose the great apps.1 So without further ado, here is the list that you can…

    I was browsing around Github when I found Jim’s Git-aware prompt repo. A nice bash hack to display the current git branch name in your terminal prompt when in a git directory. After installing it struck me1 — I can automate tedious terminal commands with Bash aliases. The general concept is that a Bash alias doesn’t accept parameters itself but it can call a function which does. g++ compiler alias I build my C++ source files with g++ -Wall -O3 foo.cpp -o foo. Now that’s a futile life; typing this multiple times a day. But thank Richard Stallman for…
  • On which a computer passes the Turing Test for the first time

    9 Jun 2014 | 3:41 am
    Yesterday, a computer simulating a 13-year-old boy named Eugene passed the Turing Test at an event organized by University of Reading at London’s Royal Society. This is a huge and remarkable breakthrough in the AI front. The Turing Test is a test of a machine’s ability to exhibit intelligent behaviour equivalent to, or indistinguishable from, that of a human. It is, essentially, a conversation between three parties—Player A (human,) Player B (machine,) and Player C (human)—which are separated from one another. If the judge (Player A) cannot reliably tell the machine…

    Day 3 for me started with an early breakfast. Serving breakfast to 13K+ people is a logistical feat made even more impressive when you see the scale of the dining facility. The hall is a gigantic warehouse-sized space on the lower floor of the Venetian whose far sides are hard to see from each edge. I somehow managed to be the first person at breakfast, due in large part to my East Coast body clock and an usher making a mistake in admitting me early. After walking for 10 minutes down aisles of wait staff directing me to a table like ramp service agents directing a plane, I managed to find a…

The Apple versus Amazon debate goes like this: Apple has shown an uncanny sense for creating new products. They are known for telling their consumers what they want, and delivering it fully functional with high profile launches. Think iPod, iTunes, iPhone and iPad. Amazon is known for delivering incrementally based on customer feedback,…

    Michael Arrington
    10 Nov 2014 | 9:52 pm
    I was perusing the news headlines this evening and I noticed this article about Glenn Beck’s health troubles. A few sentences early on in the article floored me, because it describes how I feel exactly: “Doctors tell me that up until recently, I hadn’t had a real REM sleep in maybe as long as a decade,” Beck said. “I didn’t have a dream that I remember, except one in a decade. And quite honestly, this isn’t a symptom you look to fix if you have a ton to do. But the first sign of trouble I noticed was what I call a ‘time collapse.’ If we had met before, I couldn’t tell…

    I hate expense reports. I do them once a year and I still hate it. Back when I had to do them monthly or have the finance department all over me I hated them twelve times as much. Abacus fixes all that. The company was founded by Omar Qari, Ted Power and Josh Halickman (Foursquare, Google, Etsy Venmo and other experience) and they launched earlier this year at Winter Y Combinator. You can read their launch post here. How does Abacus fix expense reports? When a company starts using Abacus, they link their bank account. Employees set themselves up in the app and also link their bank account.

I also have blogging on the mind in general after reading Jason Kincaid’s new book today.

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…

  • Internet companies should not be monitoring terrorists or anyone else

    26 Nov 2014 | 4:05 am
    It is a gross violation of privacy for communications companies to monitor their users despite what the intelligence services may claim. The recent parliamentary inquiry about the death of Fusilier Lee Rigby of the streets of Woolwich in 2013 attempts to shift the blame for the lack of intelligence about the two murderers onto internet and communications companies, but that should never be a role for private companies. After Rigby’s murder, an internet communications company, rumoured to be Facebook, passed details of a conversation one of the murderers had recently had with a foreign…

The article, Why more start-ups are sharing ideas without legal protection, written by Eileen Zimmerman, explains that the original intent of NDA agreements was to help avert fraud and the theft of ideas.

  • Apple to force Beats onto all iPhone and iPad users, FT reports says

    20 Nov 2014 | 7:34 am
    It appears Apple didn’t learn its lesson from forcing unwanted “gifts” on consumers, and is preparing to push its recently acquired Beats Music music streaming service onto all iPhone and iPad users next year, an FT report claims. Beats Music is Spotify competitor created by music impresarios Dr Dre and Jimmy Lovine as a spin-off from their over-hyped headphone business. The whole company was bought by Apple earlier this year for an impressive $3 billion, and it looks like forcing it on iOS users is how Apple hopes to make back some of that money.
