The name, at the time, was a bit of a surprise, and Windows 10 was born out of the ashes of Windows 8.1. Over the last three hundred days, we have seen a pronounced change in how Microsoft develops software. Windows 8 was the crowning achievement of Steven Sinofsky, and his sudden departure from the Redmond company only weeks after Windows 8 shipped perhaps signaled that Microsoft knew out of the gate that Windows 8 would be controversial and difficult to…

  • Genetically Modified Rice Makes More Food, Less Greenhouse Gas

The new rice pulls off this trick by putting more of its energy into top growth. In countries which depend on rice as a staple, this would add up to a really large amount of increased rice and foregone methane.Read more of this story at Slashdot.

  • In the Know About Solar Roof Panels

    25 Jul 2015 | 2:59 pm
    Solar panels usually work by harnessing the sun’s energy and convert it into a form of energy that can be stored and used. This special type of solar panel is designed to be placed on the roof of a structure for photovoltaic energy. This type of energy is produced when sunlight is converted to energy using solar cells. Energy becomes a ceramic heating method or electrically. Two types of solar roof panels, which are: • construction of solar thermal collectors by simply absorbing this energy in a liquid medium that will later be used as thermal energy • Module-this type of…
  • Japan’s Abandoned Golf Courses Are Being Transformed Into Solar Power Farms

    20 Jul 2015 | 2:42 pm
    The Kyocera Corporation is transforming an abandoned golf course into a solar power farm, with ambition to partner and repeat the same sustainable work elsewhere in Japan. An abandoned and bankrupt golf course is being transformed into a solar power station by the Kyocera Corporation. Last week, the business announced it would turn the former golf course in Kyoto into a 23-megawatt solar farm; the artist’s rendition is shown above. Once the solar power farm is finished and online (in 2017), it will generate enough electricity to power 8,100 homes.

It was a dumb idea for several reasons, including the complete unworkability of the policy and the fact that, haha, nothing can clean up YouTube's comments…
  • Warner Music's Response To Evidence Of Happy Birthday In The Public Domain: Who Really Knows Anything, Really?

    Mike Masnick

    Earlier this week, we wrote about fairly damning new evidence that almost certainly shows that the song "Happy Birthday" is in the public domain, and not, as Warner Music's Warner/Chappell claims, still covered by a copyright that it holds (and ruthlessly enforces). The evidence was in the form of a 1922 songbook that published the music and lyrics to Happy Birthday, noting that it was via "special permission through courtesy of the Clayton F Summy Co." The Summy company is who registered the copyright in 1935, and which Warner eventually bought. Warner has long argued that there was no…

Chertoff's spoken argument was particularly good, detailing all of the reasons why backdooring encryption is just a really bad idea. Last night, Chertoff, along with former NSA boss Mike McConnell and former deputy Defense Secretary William Lynn, published an opinion piece at the Washington Post, doubling…

Last year in October we heard that Facebook had managed to hit a whopping 1.35 billion monthly active users, and now according to a recent Facebook Community Update, it turns out that number has since…

    29 Jul 2015 | 4:08 pm
    While hi-tech weapons will no doubt allow us to fight and defend ourselves better, it opens up a door to a myriad of other problems that our ancestors with spears, rocks, and bows & arrows did not have to deal with – being hacked, which is what has happened recently with TargetPoint’s self-targeting sniper rifles.The hack comes courtesy of two hackers by the name of Runa Sandvik and Michael Auger, a husband and wife team who have managed to hack the sniper rifles and cause them to either not fire or mess with its self-targeting system so that it will never be able to hit its mark,…

  • New tech developments could revolutionize how we store green energy

    Kayla Matthews
    29 Jul 2015 | 6:22 am
    As operating costs continue to rise, green energy is becoming more prominent in both the consumer and enterprise spaces. Companies and consumers alike are looking to conserve energy, waste fewer resources and spend less money. The sentiment is definitely understandable. That’s why a variety of new and unique technologies are in the works to help cut down some of the costs we rack up. Modern technologies like solar-powered equipment and utilities, electric cars, green building materials and even recycled e-waste may eventually have a huge impact on our lives. One new form of technology —…
  • The Singtrix is a karaoke dream

    15 Jul 2015 | 6:47 am
    My friends and I love to go out for karaoke – the only problem is: so does everyone else. We have our one corner in our one bar where we wait for hours so that one by one we can belt out our favorite karaoke jams: “Ain’t No Mountain High Enough”, “Wagon Wheel” and my personal favorite “Wannabe”. We sit there for the entirety of an evening, enduring several overly-confident singers going for those high ballad notes, and even worse, the plastered college guys who think it’s funny to botch “Barbie Girl”. When it’s finally my chance to go, the glory moments are… Continue…
  • Singapore just made augmented reality stamps a real thing

    13 Jul 2015 | 10:27 am
    Augmented and virtual reality tech is growing more popular by the minute. The difference between the two — if you don’t already know — is one takes place in a completely digital world while the other merges digital elements with that of the real world. Unlike VR tech, augmented reality devices allow you to interact with the real world in unique ways. Take modern AR apps for smartphones as an example. Yelp Monocle uses a combination of the device’s GPS and an internal compass to display nearby attractions such as restaurants, stores, bars and more. Google’s Ingress is one of the most…

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

  • Consumers Fret Over Health Wearables Security

    John P. Mello Jr.
    29 Jul 2015 | 2:48 pm
    Collecting health and fitness data through wearable devices is raising concerns among consumers about the security of that information. Twenty-five percent of more than 3,500 consumers who participated in a recent survey did not believe their personal health data was safe on fitness trackers or in health-tracking apps, reported Healthline. Considering the recent headlines about health info data breaches, such as those at Anthem and the UCLA Medical School, that percentage may be a bit surprising.

    Motorola, on Tuesday launched three new handsets -- Moto X Style, Moto X Play and a refreshed Moto G -- designed to end the "one-sided relationships" between smartphones and consumers. People have been living with phones that nag during drives, make outbursts during meetings, and run out of juice just when they're most needed, the company said. Adding insult to injury, they are often mismatched with their owners' style and character. Motorola promised its newly introduced suitors will change all that.

    Leading artificial intelligence and robotics experts have issued an open letter arguing against the development of autonomous weapons. Its publication coincides with the International Joint Conference on Artificial Intelligence, which ends Friday in Buenos Aires. Many arguments have been advanced both for and against autonomous weapons. If any major military power pushes ahead with AI weapon development, a global arms race is "virtually inevitable" and autonomous weapons will "become the Kalashnikovs of tomorrow," the letter says.

Stagefright, which processes several popular media formats, is implemented in native code -- C++ -- which is more prone to memory corruption than memory-safe languages such as Java, according to Zimperium. Stagefright has several remote code execution vulnerabilities that can be exploited using various methods.

    A couple weeks ago I wrote a post for veterans of so-called security summer camp, focusing on ways to get the most from it even if the mind has grown jaded. This week, I’m focusing on the newbies. Every year I try to offer some advice for people attending Black Hat, BSidesLV and DEF CON for the first time. As always, it’s based on my personal experience.

  • A “Faces Of DEF CON” Clique?

    Bill Brenner
    15 Jul 2015 | 5:25 am
    Recently on Twitter, infosec pro Marcus Carey voiced his dislike for all the “Faces of DEF CON” avatars people are using. Specifically, he said every time he sees one he wants to unfollow the person. Asked why, he opined that it was “infosec clique culture at its finest.” I responded that I was keeping my own avatar and that he could go ahead and unfollow me. It was an honor to be included in the “Faces of DEF CON” series by artist and fellow infosec pro Eddie “EddieTheYeti” Mize, I told him. He unfollowed me (he later re-followed) and asked…

    I found myself sitting in a hotel room in some random city recently with a glass of wine, several open powerpoint decks and Family Guy on the television. A moment of reflection if ever there was one. It occurred to me that Liquidmatrix just had it’s 17th birthday this past February. That is a helluva long time for a website of any description. It has been a lot of fun to see the site grow from an insanely (ugly) basic HTML site to a heavily trafficked site with multiple members either writing and podcasting. I’ve been making a lot of architectural changes to the site and now, I’m…
  • 4 Tips for Jaded Black Hat/DEF CON Attendees

    Bill Brenner
    9 Jul 2015 | 11:33 am
    Soon, in various publications, articles will appear with advice for folks attending Black Hat and DEF CON for the first time. Advice for newbies is important, and I’ve written my own survival guide for that over the years. But for this post, I’m speaking to the battle-hardened veterans who have made the journey repeatedly over the years. Having attended too many of these to count, I consider myself a veteran. Or, to put it another way, I consider myself among the jaded. “Jaded” is a negative word. It’s typically used to describe someone who is burned out and no longer impressed with…

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

    The GMB Union is suing online taxi service Uber claiming it is not providing basic workers’ rights to its drivers, such as holidays and a minimum wage. It also claims the company doesn’t adhere to health and safety standards, including making sure drivers take a break or work a maximum number of hours per week.

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

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

  • I wish 10. Cats at Indian Traffic Signals

    Anupam Varghese
    20 Apr 2015 | 12:12 pm
    I wish we have traffic signals where cut-out cats pop-up on the road. No more plain red lights. Let me explain.To anyone who has travelled on Indian roads, this should be pretty obvious; to others, it might sound fatally amusing. One thing that vehicle drivers in India seem inherently incapable of doing is stopping before the white lines drawn at traffic signals (that is if they decide to stop in the first place).Thankfully, there is ONE thing that can stop almost all of them: cats. A cat crossing ones path is considered inauspicious (to put it mildly) and Indians would do anything to avoid…

    Past slow streams, and paddy plains,A gentle breeze, the drizzling rain, A blue-bird tries catch-up in vain,To a soulful beat, my rocking trainBack ten years, my numb mind panes, A time that sure no more remains,Had no money and had no pains,Nor plans beyond the morrow made,When music was the sole refrain, And dreams my waiting soul had gained,To love, I was not yet ordained,Just longings that were best contained,In the sleepy city, along the drain,My good 'ol car, on a narrow lane,Driving with the rolled down panes,Humming a tune the radio made,Next to me, the guitar he played,My fingers…

As a result of streaming media, cord cutters have detached themselves from costly cable companies who force them into paying for channels and networks they never intend to watch. Streaming networks have proven that it’s no longer necessary to pay for expensive cable or satellite packages, but rather the content customers want when they want it.

    Industrial farming came about at the turn of the twentieth century during the Industrial Revolution. As we began developing machinery to do most of the heavy lifting for us, small and medium farming and agricultural operations have steadily declined. Large industrial operations have since taken their place and created the conundrum we call our food supply today – enter agribusiness. Today large-scale industrial operations make up only 12 percent of the U.S. farms and yet are responsible for 88 percent of the farm production in this country. In the meat industry alone, the top 4 industrial…

Some gamers look down on dungeon crawl games, because they crave a more complex game. They want an overarching subplot, the option to develop multiple characters, they love the conflicting info and puzzles, trying to figure out the next course of action.

And that’s when I start to fall apart. We were created for God’s presence, and we were created to live in balance: quiet times and times of high energy and activity; times in the dark and times in the sun; times to think and times to act; times to rest and recharge and times to work.

  • Google Photos — another one joins the club

    Brad Grier
    31 May 2015 | 8:52 am
    This weekend Google unveiled their new online image storage service — Google Photos. It’s not Picassa, though it can use it. It’s also separate from Google+. Interesting. Meh. I’ll stick with Flickr. Here’s why. If you want unlimited free storage, this may work for you, though when you upload your photos, you have to use Google’s ‘high quality but free’ setting, not the original setting. This means RAW and other file formats will be converted. Also, there doesn’t appear to be a way to share the link directly to the image file — rather all shared links jump to a Google…

  • What Your Drinking Habits Reveal About You

    29 Jul 2015 | 3:15 pm
    Looks like science found a reason you might love happy hour so much. A new study by Gallup has found that if you're an American who's educated and makes a decent amount of money, you're likely to drink more. The study, done in early July with a group of 1,009 adults in 50 states, found that overall, 64 percent of Americans enjoy throwing back a few. But when it comes down to separating that number into different groups of people and their habits, eight out of 10 people with college degrees and high salaries drink more - mostly because they engage in more activities that involve alcohol, like…
  • What Happens When Game of Thrones Meets Autocorrect

    29 Jul 2015 | 2:48 pm
    Autocorrect fails happen all the time and we've accepted it for the most part. But we still can't get over when our smartphones completely butcher the names of our favorite characters on TV. But instead of seeing those mistakes as an annoyance, one artist decided to turn them into beautiful illustrations for Game of Thrones. Artist James Chapman, a PhD student at the University of Manchester and author of Soundanimals: An Illustrated Guide to Animal Sounds in Other Languages, drew the autocorrects he'd always get when texting about different Game of Thrones characters.

Cybersecurity has never been higher on the political agenda in the EU and globally. And with good reason. This month’s cyber-attack on the U.S. Federal Government personnel office, which led to the information of around 4 million federal workers being stolen, is unfortunately not an isolated incident.

This widely publicized event is one of many where a government has been accused of a damaging cyberattack. Therein lies the discontinuity. While cybercriminals of course act in disregard of the common good, governments are supposed to be different. Governments are supposed to protect the national security, public safety and economic prosperity of their own citizens and, even further, they are supposed to promote…

  • Vulnerability That Renders Android Devices Silent Discovered

    29 Jul 2015 | 3:07 pm
    Android sure is having a crappy week when it comes to security. We have discovered a vulnerability in Android that can render a phone apparently dead – silent, unable to make calls, with a lifeless screen. This vulnerability is present from Android 4.3 (Jelly Bean) up to the current version, Android 5.1.1 (Lollipop). Combined, these versions account for more than half of Android devices in use today. No patch has been issued in the Android Open Source Project (AOSP) code by the Android Engineering Team to fix this vulnerability since we reported it in late May. Comments

    Earlier this week, we wrote about fairly damning new evidence that almost certainly shows that the song "Happy Birthday" is in the public domain, and not, as Warner Music's Warner/Chappell claims, still covered by a copyright that it holds (and ruthlessly enforces). The evidence was in the form of a 1922 songbook that published the music and lyrics to Happy Birthday, noting that it was via "special permission through courtesy of the Clayton F Summy Co." The Summy company is who registered the copyright in 1935, and which Warner eventually bought. Warner has long argued that there was no…

    The Itanium may not have been much of a commercial success, but it is interesting as a processor architecture because it is different from anything else commonly seen today.

The next two weeks will be devoted to an introduction to the Itanium processor architecture, as employed by Win32. There's part one, two, and three - with more to come.

The company appears to be granting itself the right to share your data either with your consent "or as necessary". You done got Scroogled.
  • Microsoft releases tool to block Windows 10 updates

    Microsoft has been releasing updates to build 10240 on an almost daily basis since it hit RTM. Most of the patches are important security or bug fixes and rather useful but some have reported crashes occurring as a result of the updates. As we had previously reported, Microsoft has made updates mandatory and automatic, thus stopping users from opting out of unwanted updates or till the update has been checked by other users. A new troubleshooting package, KB3073930, however, allows you to hide or block Windows or driver updates. With Windows 10 being released in a few hours, bookmark the…

So in the coming months, a Google Account will be all you'll need to share content, communicate with contacts, create a YouTube channel and more, all across Google. YouTube will be one of the first products to make this change, and you can learn more on their blog. As always, your underlying Google Account won't be searchable or followable, unlike…

    In an effort to unite the Windows Eco-system across a variety of hardware Microsoft has made many changes to make "Windows 10" work on the majority of devices out there, even ones with age-old hardware specification. To see exactly how well the new operating-system goes on with old hardware, Softpedia performed a quick test of installing and using Windows 10 on a 7-year-old Acer Aspire One powered by Intel Atom N450 processor clocked at 1.66 GHz, 1 GB of RAM, and a 320 GB hard disk. The results were quite surprising, the total installation took just 15 minutes from a USB drive and Windows 10…

After identifying the details, you have to make the bill and then print it. You also need to track the bill to know if it’s paid or not. If there are complaints, you have to check all of your records to verify it. All of these processes will consume a lot of time.

    Rex Hammock
    29 Jul 2015 | 6:34 am
    Because I’ve blogged a rather long time, I now have the privilege to point back to things written long ago (as history is so prone to repeat itself). For instance, five years ago, I shared my theory that the products Google constantly releases fall into two categories: the “Lucy Google” product or the “Pigpen Google” product. I point to that earlier post because of the failure of Google+ as a product (but a failure that contains many products that IMHO, once freed from the social networking shackles of Google+ will be successful), If you are wondering what I…

However, this feature roll-out was announced yesterday and is worth a special shout-out. (I’m a fan-boy of Google Maps.) As described by the Google Maps blog, the “Time Line” feature on Google Maps will not only let you tie location information to a Google Map, if you use Google Photos, it will display those on the timeline and map, as well. A similar “photo-on-map” feature has been on Flickr…

If you are among the 12 people who read this blog, I don’t need to catch you up. South Carolina did the right thing. Other states should follow. And, members of the U.S. House of Representatives should also. From the Washington Post story, “As S.C. prepares to lower battle flag, Boehner calls for Confederate review,” comes this quote that…

Old People At Bonnaroo from Funny Or Die   In addition to being blatantly ageist bigotry, the premise seems to fall apart when you consider that Funny or Die’s criteria for being an “old person” is being born before 1946. By that definition, here are some other cute old people they could have…

    Data is eating me alive. Every gadget these days can shoot photos and record video. The move to smaller but faster SSDs hasn't helped with storage. I captured 275GB of photos and videos on my last trip. Just one trip! And I'm just a hobbyist photographer with a mere 12MP camera. If you shoot with any regularity and a 20MP+ camera you'll easily be clocking more than a terabyte a year. Where on earth do normal people store that much data?

    28 Jul 2015 | 12:15 am
    You can easily embed tweets in your website by adding a little HTML snippet to your site’s template. The embedded tweets are interactive in the sense that they’ve a follow button, they show live retweet counts, and you also use CSS to change the formatting of tweets. Now CSS does help you control the tweet’s appearance but you may be surprised to know that it is also possible to change the other elements of an embedded tweet. For instance, you may modify the actual text of the tweet. The favorite & retweet counts can be altered as well. Let me illustrate that with an…

    Your computer is connected to a Wi-Fi network but you do not remember the password that you had earlier used to connect to this particular WiFi network. Maybe you forgot the password or maybe the network administrator entered it directly without revealing the actual password to you. You would now like to connect a second device, like your mobile phone, to the same WiFi network but how do you find out the password?

    Millennials: You may or may not have heard the term. Sources vary, but generally Millennials are classified as individuals with birth years ranging from 1982-2004.  Famous generations like the Baby Boomers have come about due to a significant societal influence, i.e. WWII.  For the Millennials, their lives have developed from a culture heavily influenced by a continually evolving entity: the computer.

    Couple of years ago, the world of mobile apps was shocked with the appearance of World Lens app, which detected words on live cameras. Even though the mobile phones at the time had quite limited camera capabilities, what World Lens showed to us was the future of translation. Naturally, revolutionary apps like that do not just disappear as Google proved by acquiring the app maker, Quest Visual. Given that World Lens for Google Glass was one of most impressive things I’ve personally used on Google’s first attempt at Augmented Reality, as you can see on video below: Now, over a year…

    As a portrait and fashion photographer I rarely have to worry about weather because I’m usually shooting in studio and controlling the lighting and environment. However, when I travel I become a travel/landscape photographer and just let me admit that it’s way way way more challenging. The 3rd stop on my Adobe tour took me to Hong Kong. Since it was my first trip to Hong Kong and I had plenty of time (a week) I was in no rush to go out shooting on day one. I arrived late Friday evening and on Saturday it looked like the shot above.

    Terry White

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

Since then, we have seen a Nokia branded tablet, a launcher, few improvements to the Here maps and more. However, in terms of absolute new hardware and vertical, for the first time since the Microsoft takeover happened, Nokia…

    “User interface” is term a lot of us often see, especially when it comes to gadgets and devices. But does everyone knows what a user interface is?

The purpose of this interaction is to make it possible for an efficient functionality and command of the unit from the human end, as the machine at the same time provides feedback data that helps the user’s process of decision-making.

    So you’ve tried every marketing tip in the book, and you still aren’t seeing results. You’ve started a blog, engaged on social media, made videos, and done everything else you’ve been recommended. Despite your extensive efforts, you haven’t seen any increase in your business. So what’s the problem? The problem probably isn’t what you’re doing, but why you’re doing it. Even if you have a plan of what type of content you want to produce and when you want to release it, it’s not going to help you if the plan wasn’t preceded and informed by a strategy.

    It may feel like Facebook is constantly rolling out updates, but their latest News Feed update is the biggest change they’ve made in a long time. The update is supposed to be helpful to users, but in the process it might hinder your company’s outreach efforts. What the Change Is Since its inception, the Facebook News Feed has gone through many changes. Originally, it was a timeline that listed items based on when they were posted, with no filter for the content at all. Later, it evolved to News Feed that relies on an algorithm to determine what the user wants to see first. Now, Facebook…

    An important part of both your search engine optimization (SEO) and visitor satisfaction is optimizing your images. Images that aren’t optimized can affect your site’s load time, as well as your ranking in search engine results. Optimizing for Load Time It’s no secret that a web page with a lot of images, including gifs, often takes longer to load than a web page that’s only made up of text. It’s also no secret that web pages without images aren’t very interesting to look at. How can you avoid a load time that will turn people away while also having enough images to keep them…

  • Indian Hospitals Providing Quality Health Care at a Fraction of U.S. Prices

    28 Jul 2015 | 10:37 pm
    It has been established beyond doubt that the health care in the U.S. is the most expensive in the world at 8.508 per capita. Implementing the Affordable Care Act will be meaningless unless the U.S. finds ways to reduce overwhelming health care costs without sacrificing the quality of care and improving access for patients. An article in the Washington Post by Vijay Govindarajan, Professor of International Business at Tuck School of Business, Dartmouth College and Ravi Ramamurti, Professor at Northeastern University and Director of its Center for Emerging Markets, points out that U.S.
  • ACP Releases Wiser Cancer Screening Techniques

    Meghann Kiernan
    26 Jul 2015 | 10:53 pm
    Regular screening increases the chances of detecting certain cancers early, when they are most likely to be curable. However, screening strategies vary in intensity and value. Many people have a lack of understanding about the trade-offs of screening. Studies report that patients and many physicians overestimate the benefits and are unaware of and/or downplay the potential harms of cancer screening. High intensity screening strategies are not necessarily high value care. In a paper published recently in the Annals of Internal Medicine, the American College of Physicians (ACP) issued advice…

    Fibromyalgia is a long term condition characterized by widespread pain in the muscles and soft tissues surrounding the joints throughout the body. Reports from the National Fibromyalgia Association show that about 10 million people in the United States suffer from this condition. Even though this condition affects both men and women, about 80-90 percent of cases account for women (mostly middle-aged women). The most common symptom associated with this condition is widespread pain that may initially begin in one area of the body such as the neck or shoulders and eventually spread to the entire…
  • Medical Coding for Burns in the Emergency Department

    Julie Clements
    21 Jul 2015 | 10:22 pm
    It is very important to remain very cautious when coding for burns in an emergency setting. This is mainly because the medical coding rules and regulations for burn care are complex, are subject to change often and errors can cause big revenue loss to your practice. When it comes to proper coding, you should use the right diagnostic codes, CPT codes and evaluation and management (E/M) codes with the correct modifiers. ICD-9 Diagnostic Codes 940: Burn confined to eye and adnexa 941: Burn of face head and neck 942: Burn of trunk 943: Burn of upper limb except wrist and hand 944: Burn of…
  • Tomosynthesis More Effective to Detect Breast Cancer

    Rajeev Rajagopal
    19 Jul 2015 | 10:31 pm
    According to the American Cancer Society (ACS), most doctors feel that early detection tests for breast cancer can save thousands of lives every year. Most of the practices rely on screening to find cancer before the patients start to show symptoms. Several billable screening techniques used for women include mammograms, clinical breast exam, breast-self exam and even MRI screening. However, a new screening study from Lund University, Sweden has revealed that digital breast tomosynthesis (DBT) can detect 40% more breast cancers than traditional mammography.

    Part of the job of a technical author is to edit, review, read and understand articles that people have written. So you get a feeling for what works and what doesn’t. The primary conclusion I have drawn from this is that simplicity is key. Simplicity makes things quicker to read. It makes them easier to remember and increases the satisfaction level of the reader. Sounds like simplicity is good, can you go too far? Before you can simplify you need to have a clear understanding of what you are trying to say in the first place. You can oversimplify by leaving out essential information and not…

The depot enabled the customer to build up to 100 computers a day and the customer had the peace of mind knowing that every computer being built was getting the same Windows image and applications.  This process has been in place for well over a decade and had been accepted by employees as the standard process for receiving their computer.

    Choosing a wireless provider is important as getting a Smartphone. The service provider offers the network, considering that you'll possibly end up spending an acceptable price for the service, and there is no reason in keeping with a poor service. However, there is no assured way to forecast this. For every person who may have a bad story experience with a carrier, recently there tend to be

  • The Real Reason Your Workforce Is Not As Productive As It Should Be

    Steve Brasen
    20 Jul 2015 | 10:32 am
    Chances are, in an average day, you are not accomplishing as many tasks as you would like … and neither are your colleagues or your employees. What is mystifying about that statement is that it seems today’s workforce is putting in more hours and more effort than ever before coinciding with an increased adoption of IT devices and applications designed to improve user productivity. In fact, this has been a key driver for organizations to enable workforce mobility – to provide flexibility in accessing business IT resources (applications, data, email, and other services) from any device at…
  • Office 365: To Cloud or Not to Cloud—That IS the Question!

    Steve Brasen
    21 Jun 2015 | 8:01 pm
    It’s time to take a serious look at Office 365. The cloud edition of Microsoft’s broadly adopted business productivity suite – which bundles such popular packages as Microsoft Word, Microsoft Excel, Microsoft PowerPoint, and Microsoft Outlook – has been both heavily praised and heavily criticized since its introduction in 2011. While the adoption rate of the traditional software edition of Microsoft Office is currently in no danger of being overtaken by its cloud-hosted cousin, recent adoption rates for Office 365 have substantially accelerated. Businesses, in particular, have shown…
  • Cisco’s Big Data Analytics Vision: Some Data Will Be Distributed Forever

    Shamus McGillicuddy
    12 Jun 2015 | 11:26 am
    Champions of big data analytics extoll the virtues of massive data stores. Enterprises have so much unstructured data that could help them improve operations and generate new revenue, they say. The more bytes, the better. Some might assume that enterprises will simply push every byte they can find into a Hadoop cluster or data warehouse. [...]

    5 Jun 2015 | 9:18 am
    Here we go again. New releases of Microsoft’s flagship operating system are typically greeted with a combination of angst, curiosity, confusion, and dread in equal measure. It seems just as folks have gotten used to a particular Microsoft version, a new one is released with a completely different interface and requiring a whole new set of operational practices. Even worse, upgrading large numbers of desktops to the new edition in a large enterprise environment is a daunting task often avoided by IT operations teams until and unless it is absolutely necessary to perform a mass migration.

    Both the “rules” and the “roles” governing IT service management (ITSM) are evolving to support a far-broader need for inclusiveness across IT, and between IT and its service consumers. Recent EMA research, “What Is the Future of IT Service Management?” (March 2015), exposed a number of shifting trends that might surprise many in the industry. [...]

  • The Art of Performance tuning and Optimization

    6 Jul 2015 | 7:44 am
    About 2500 years ago there lived a brilliant Chinese military strategist, general Sun Tzu. His life’s work was a book entitled “The  Art of War”. It is full of ideas or in a way design patterns for winning small to large-scale conflicts in the most optimal ways.Even though the book is now 25 centuries old it still inspires leaders in our times. Sun Tzu believed that one of the better ways to win a war was to avoid a fight in a clever way. In our beloved software industry there are actually quite a few who believe the same.

Most people are convinced testers do nothing else but test computer games, which for them means they play all day long at work. They couldn’t be more wrong!Testers work not only for game dev companies. They work in IT departments of companies operating in various sectors.

Angular 2 looks like a completely different framework: no controllers*, no DDO, no $scope, no angular.module and completely rewritten binding and change detection (no ng-model).Although Angular 2 is still work in progress many new features have already been revealed.

And yet; there remains an unfulfilled level of pride. And as the Evil Empire of Evildoers well know, Arrogant pride in our Evilness is basically a requirement.

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

Most companies’ efforts, therefore, are centered on the development and optimization of new products and/or services. Developing a superior product, however, is only half the picture. For a new product/service to be adopted, consumers have to be willing to part with an existing product/service/behavior.

When I first moved to Chicago seven years ago, Ulta dominated the market, and I suppose that makes sense given it is a Chicago-based company. When I ventured into Ulta for the first time, just to explore, I remember that being the moment when my floodgates of makeup-crazed girly-ness opened. Yes, they carried some of the drugstore brands in one section of the store, all very familiar thanks to my teen years, but to the…

However, when we see our favorite product sitting on the store shelf in a fun new package (right next to the package we’ve always bought), and it costs a little more than we’re used to paying, we’re still pretty likely to put that in our cart – and we’re savvy enough to know that the product inside is exactly same as…

    When the Marshall London was announced internationally, I mentioned on a post that it has the same specs as other midrange phones with more than twice the price. But when I saw it firsthand the other day, it was clearly more than the sum of its parts. The Marshall London is one of those smartphones where you initially ask why, and then when you see it you say why not. It’s a beautifully crafted device with a distinct look that is most definitely Marshall. The black color scheme together with the white trimming on the screen, the gold metal accents of the scroll wheel and audio jacks, and…

    Most of the reviews of Windows 10 have applauded the new OS as a good upgrade from Windows 7 and a necessary upgrade from Windows 8. But Laptop Magazine's Mark Spoonauer took a different approach with his review. He pitted Windows 10 against the Mac's OS X El Capitan, using the near-final version of Windows 10 and the public beta of El Capitan for a few weeks. He scored them in nine categories and declared Windows 10 was best overall. Out of 100 possible points, Windows 10 was awarded 70 and OS X El Capitan nabbed 45 That said, Mac's OS still beat out Windows in a few key areas, too.

But when I reviewed motherboards like Gigabyte X99-UD4, I found that the space between the CPU cooler and the first PCIe x16 slot is non-existent when I mounted Zotac GTX 780Ti Extreme AMP! Edition. Yikes!!! At that point, I felt that motherboard makers should be more ‘friendly’ with larger CPU cooler especially with an Intel X99 platform with up to 4x PCIe x16 slots. Yeah right. Easier said than done with an ATX form factor. Noctua…

The CPU cooler can accommodate up to 2x 140 x 140 x 25mm fans, but with a choice of a single fan, you can either mount it towards the top for having high clearance required for tall spreaders and even maybe some sinks on the motherboard (you’ll be surprised).

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

    While there are already some truly tiny consumer drones out there, their protruding propellers still make them difficult to stuff into one’s pocket. AeriCam had been developing a model called the Anura, which featured props that folded into its sides – as a result, the whole aircraft became a pocketable rectangle. While we haven’t heard much about that one lately, Droidworx is now promising something similar in the form of its Blu quadcopter...

  • Build a Grid Layout For WordPress Using WP_Query

    John Morris
    16 Jul 2015 | 4:25 am
    Here’s how to build a grid layout for WordPress via shortcodes and WP_Query: A lot of WordPress developers immediately rush to query_posts in order to create custom loops. But, query_posts is meant for altering the main loop of a WordPress page/post (actually, it’s not even recommended for that anymore). Using get_posts() is okay… but, if you want that real WordPress flavor using WP_Query is the way to go. In the video above, I show you how to use WP_Query to create a custom loop inside WordPress in order to build a Pinterest-style grid layout. Here’s the code I used…

It takes self-control and is amazingly easy to subvert. Getting fit, eating less, studying more, and many similar plans, are made, and almost as quickly abandoned, as our self-control resources become depleted through the business of life and more immediate, alternative, gratifications.

But if you’re not a fan of Microsoft’s search engine, you can easily disable this feature. There is one downside however, and that’s you’ll also lose Cortana as well as Bing.

The Kiwi’s creation towers at New Zealand countryside and worthy as the treehouse (read: man-cave) for grown ups.

So the decision was made to go with steel structure. Instead of relying on tree to be elevated, Jono’s Skysphere is…

But now, I know if I did live in Minneapolis, I will have the opportunity to swim in natural waters without that fear – thanks to the Webber Park Natural Swimming Pool. Of…

    24 Jul 2015 | 2:13 pm
    This week scientists at Oak Ridge National Laboratory have created two dimensional nano-electronic circuits just 1nm tall (see Nature Communications article). Apparently they were able to create one crystal two crystals ontop of one another, then infused the top that layer with sulfur. With that as a base they used  standard scalable photolitographic and electron beam lithographic processing techniques to pattern electronic junctions in the crystal layer and then used a pulsed laser evaporate to burn off selective sulfur atoms from a target (selective sulferization of the material),…

    Was talking with Qumulo‘s CEO Peter Godman earlier this week for another GreyBeards On Storage Podcast (not available yet). One thing he said which was hard for me to comprehend was that they were putting out a new storage software release every 2 weeks. Their customers are updating their storage system software every 2 weeks. In my past life as a storage systems development director, we would normally have to wait months if not quarters before customers updated their systems to the latest release. As a result, we strived to put out an update at most, once a quarter with a major…

This will be my 6th consecutive MVP award year and I am glad to be a part of the elite community!

I have learned a quite a bit around IoT, Azure, AWS, and GCE. So, naturally, I am looking forward to more this coming year as I expand beyond PowerShell and DSC. Stay tuned!

    Containers? No, not the shipping containers but the much-hyped container technology in the computer industry. I am sure even if you have not used any of the existing container technologies, you must have at least read or heard about them. I am not the first one to write about containers and this is certainly not an in-depth overview of container technologies. I will eventually get there and show you how you can deploy different container technologies. This series of articles is about my own thoughts and a documentation for my own reference. In the process, I wish to help my readers as well.

    I read a recent blog post by Adam Pisoni, CTO & co-founder of Yammer, titled I’m Sorry But Agile Won’t Fix Your Products. It’s a great read and drives home a truth that often gets overlooked in our industry: small, empowered and self-organizing teams almost always produce better products than larger, top-down led and longer-lived teams. Overall it gives you a glimpse into some of the newer approaches to management that have emerged from the Valley in the last few years (e.g. Holacracy, Lean). The only downside to the post was the fact he made a number of false statements about Agile…

    Over the last few weeks I’ve interviewed many 2015 graduates seeking jobs in software development. The good news is: there are a lot of talented young developers coming into the workforce. The bad news is: too many of these are poorly prepared to find their first software jobs. Here are some tips to consider as a new freshman this fall for preparing yourself in finding your first job after graduation. #1: Consider Your Major I’m assuming there must be lots of people who get jobs outside software with CE/IT/EE majors, but due to my exclusive software focus, I unfortunately do not see them.

    Many things in life seem like a good idea at the time and then reality bites, getting into the Predator Shield is one of those things. As hilarious for us as it is terrifying for the occupant the cube of terror is the genius creation of Japanese game show Sekai No Hatte Madde Itte Q! (Riddles at the Ends of the Earth!). Made of tough plexiglass the Predator Shield seems to be able to take a beating and keep on ticking as its terrified cargo screams in fear. They only question is when do you get out? Do you have to wait till the bear gets bored of the cube? Presented for your viewing pleasure…

  • Windows 10: why Africa could be key to its success

    Stuart Thomas: Senior Reporter
    29 Jul 2015 | 8:39 am
    It’s Windows 10 launch day and Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella isn’t at the company’s headquarters in Redmond Washington. Nor is he in San Francisco, Los Angeles, or New York. He’s in Kenya. That’s important, because it gives us a clue as to just how important Africa might be for Windows 10. Here’s why. In the run-up to today’s launch, Microsoft said it would be putting taking a more human approach to the launch. Rather than concentrating on the features (which anyone who cares already knows all about) and the business case, it’s pushing the focus…
  • 5 ways to optimise email marketing

    David Graham
    28 Jul 2015 | 10:00 pm
    Of all the marketing channels available to marketers, email is still the most effective. According to an article published by Mc Kinsey, email remains a significantly more effective way to acquire customers than social media—nearly 40 times that of Facebook and Twitter combined. While being a highly effective channel to engage with prospective customers, email is also abused by many marketers. I have provided 5 ways to build your subscriber list and to ensure you are viewed as a trusted adviser by your subscribers. 1. Provide a compelling reason for people to subscribe Always bear in mind…
  • Windows 10: 5 key numbers to know before Microsoft’s big launch

    Andy Walker: Gearburn Editor
    28 Jul 2015 | 9:30 pm
    For all Windows 10 related views, breaking stories and deeper analysis, visit our comprehensive Windows 10 Hub before and after Microsoft’s big launch. If Microsoft ever found itself chin deep in a bog of its failed operating systems, Windows 10 would be the outstretched arm pulling it to safety. At least that’s evident from what we’ve seen while running pre-release versions of the OS. With that said, Windows 10 is by no means a polished product. In fact, Microsoft has a massive list of “must dos” even after the OS is launched globally to consumers on 29 July. But,…

    The world of work is moving at an unprecedented pace. Millennials and new technologies are entering the workplace, customer expectations are rising, competition is becoming fiercer, and regulation in most industries is getting tougher. Many companies are struggling to keep up with the pace of change. Though enterprises are investing in new technologies and processes to address these challenges, they’re often not able to effectively absorb these solutions into their organisations. The result is fragmented customer service, inefficiencies and productivity levels that don’t meet…

  • Selfishly Altruistic: The Science Behind Sharing

    Renee Schmidt
    14 Jul 2015 | 1:09 pm
    Altruism is fascinating. Partly because it goes against what we understand of human nature —that people inherently desire the greatest amount of instant gratification with the least amount of effort. As I wrote recently, what separates us from our ape cousins is this very desire for instant gratification. Humans, because we have a better-developed pre-frontal cortex, can assess second, third, or even fourth order consequences of any given action, and CHOOSE to inject self-discipline in favor of a longer term outcome (i.e. pain now, gain later). The pre-frontal cortex is involved…
  • Are You Living a Lie? The Wisdom of Truth

    Renee Schmidt
    7 Jul 2015 | 8:05 am
    As a management consultant, my success hinges upon radical honesty. When a consultant is brought in, it’s usually because an injection of truth is required. As Albert Einstein put it best: “We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them.” People are afraid of the truth. Avoiding the truth about situations, people, and ourselves, however, prevents us from learning and keeps us stuck in repetitive patterns that thwart our evolution and the attainment of that which we truly desire. This is no different in an organizational setting. Companies that…
  • Manifesting My Desires: Am I Worthy?

    Renee Schmidt
    6 Jul 2015 | 10:12 am
    I have been considering what it takes to manifest more of what I want into my life. This led me to question: am I worthy of what I want? And how does one determine self-worth or self-value anyway? The whole endeavor sounds like a big ego trip. It’s not. Three types of people will read this post; those with 1. healthy self-worth, 2. low self-worth and 3. inflated self-worth. Individuals with low and inflated self-worth are both egotistical; it’s just different sides of the same coin (sorry to be the bearer of bad news). Low self-worth often exhibits as not manifesting what we desire.

  • Why I Deactivated My Facebook Profile

    I deactivated my Facebook profile. Why? Because no one cares. Well, actually, if you’re reading this post and have found your way here to my personal blog, you may care. But by and large, people will not. If you desire my substantiation, or thoughtful reasons why you may want to do the same, here are a couple of reasons why I’ve taken  my ~10 year old profile down. 1. Too much noise and none of it is of particular value. I noticed myself busy with Facebook but not getting any particular value out of it.

For those that have been very comfortable using digital music service Spotify for the past few years Apple Music has been somewhat of an interesting development. Initially it was thought that Apple were simply riding the coat tails of the aforementioned music provider trying to lure away iOS users to use their cheaper and more convenient music streaming service.

    It was bound to happen sooner or later, with Apple taking on the computer, the phone and the music industry, it is now set to change the watch industry forever and redefine what a watch actually is. With the release of the Apple Watch came an innovative way of telling the time. No longer will we look down at our wrist to simply be told that it is 10 past 2, now we can also use it to communicate with others through a tap, a sketch or even our heartbeat. Not only this, but we can also be motivated by our watch through a snapshot of our daily activity, get directions and speak to our own…

    When it comes to technology, there are two predominant types that usually whittle their way to the forefront of everyone’s minds. We’re talking about mobile technology, and desktop technology. Each of them have their benefits and their downfalls, and that’s what we’re going to explore in this blog. Will desktop reign superior? Or will mobile finally be the one that knocks desktops off the edge and into oblivion? We’re not psychic, but the trends thus far allow for some very interesting patterns to emerge.

    Ever since gaming became its own subculture it has been fraught with controversy, taking the blame for everything from laziness in young adults to the horrors of the Columbine shooting. However, despite the standard media narrative that gaming is destructive, the fundamentals of gaming offers society more positives than negatives. At its core, gaming is about competition, whether against yourself or other players.

Not only is Windows 10 available as a free update to Windows 7 and Windows 8 users, but the new OS from Microsoft comes with a bevy of interesting new features that are certainly worth exploring. At the same time, and as with any new OS release, there are a few wrinkles to be ironed out and new privacy issues worth noting.

    Note: This is not an advertisement. I love what the folks at DuckDuckGo are doing and want to spread the word. DuckDuckGo is my search engine of choice (and is the page that opens in all new Safari tabs for me). If you are not using it as your default search engine, I’d advise you to start now. I started using DuckDuckGo well over two years ago. My initial impressions back then was that it was slow, the results were not nearly as good as Google’s and the name was stupid. None of those first impressions turned out to be true. Why DuckDuckGo? They do not track you. It always feels…
  • A Simple Markdown Spotlight Importer

    27 Jun 2015 | 11:33 am
    I noticed recently that Spotlight on Yosemite was no longer indexing my Markdown files. Since all my notes are in Markdown format, and Spotlight is how I find my notes, this was a big problem. Reinstalling my current set of Markdown editors did not help. This did. Huge thanks to Gereon Sommer for the idea in Mac OS X Spotlight Enhancement. The idea is to use a built-in importer, in this case RichText, to do all the work for you. Note that this will probably need to be repeated on each Operating System install or upgrade.

    I love creating new products. I love shipping new products more. That last effin 20% of work to create a new product that takes 80% of all the development time kills me. I really want to ship, but it has to be right. For those who do not know the 80/20 rule, it’s a variant of the misnamed Pareto Principal wherein Vilfredo Pareto created a mathematical formula in 1906 to describe the unequal distribution of wealth in his country, observing that 20% of the people owned 80% of the wealth. This was then applied to other areas and seemed to hold true. In reality, Tom Cargill had it right…

  • Debris found near Madagascar may be from long-missing MH370 airliner

    Chris Ziegler
    29 Jul 2015 | 3:59 pm
    Multiple reports now indicate that a weather-battered aircraft section found earlier today on Réunion Island in the Indian Ocean is part of a flaperon — a control surface that acts both as a flap and an aileron — from a Boeing 777. The only Boeing 777 that is presently unaccounted for is Malaysia Airlines 370, which has been missing since it disappeared from radar in March of 2014 with 239 people aboard. Today's news appears to be the strongest evidence yet of the airliner's fate. The debris was found far west of officials' original search zones for MH370's wreckage that had been guided…

    29 Jul 2015 | 3:10 pm
    Dynamic cruise control is one of those opulent car options that sound a little ridiculous until you actually try it, and then you can't really imagine using a car without it. It is awesome. The concept is simple: instead of operating at a constant, set speed, your car continuously monitors for traffic ahead of you and adjusts your speed to maintain a minimum set distance, along with a maximum speed. For highway goers, it can mean traveling for hours at a time without ever touching a pedal. (As you might imagine, it's also an important precursor to autonomous driving.) Continue reading…

    Facebook has another quarter in the books, and the company's business continues to boom. Its revenues rose roughly 40 percent year over year, to $4.04 billion. But its net income declined compared to last year, declining from $791 million to $719 million. Its operating margins also tumbled as Facebook's spending soared. This measure of profitability slumped from 48 percent this time a year ago to 31 percent this quarter. On today's earnings call, chief financial officer David Wehner said that the company had added a near record number of new employees this quarter, most in research and…

    The White House is getting serious about supercomputers. Today, President Obama issued an executive order establishing the National Strategic Computing Intiative — essentially a federal strategy for making sure America leads the field in supercomputers. The order points to implementations in medicine, climate science, and aerospace as just some of the early benefits of supercomputing power. The initiative also comes with a striking new promise: within the next ten years, the government pledges to build an exascale computer, capable of 10^18 operations per second.

    Project Loon is undoubtably one of the most "Google" projects that Google is working on — Wi-Fi being delivered by giant floating balloons is certainly a unique approach to getting internet to hard-to-reach areas. While Project Loon still sits in the Google X "moonshots" lab, it got a huge vote of confidence from the nation of Sri Lanka, which announced yesterday it would use Project Loon to cover the island nation with internet. This would make Sri Lanka the first country to have universal internet coverage; the country's relatively small size (just over 25,000 square miles) certainly…

    28 Jul 2015 | 4:24 pm
    (c) The Internet of Things (IoT) was the most hyped technology of 2014 according to Gartner, and it’s easy to see why. Cisco’s recent IoT study suggests that the number of connected devices is expected to grow to 50 billion by 2020, leading to a global economic impact of $10 trillion. Connected devices are set to change the very fabric of the world we live and work in. However, the buzz around gadgets such as connected fridges and smart kettles being developed by consumer goods manufacturers have been a distraction from the IoT’s true potential. Indeed,…

Just as the personal computer enabled new use cases and gave end users new ways to be productive and be entertained, IoT will enable a number of digital improvements to the status quo. All these potential improvements and use cases belong to one of four main uses, much in the way that previous technologies, like the PC, touched all industries.

The wearable phenomenon and the promise of a connected fridge or toaster in every ‘smart home’ are proving to be the earliest drivers, with the ecosystem likely to broaden over time. In fact, for a relatively new market, the IoT is growing and maturing quickly: Intel has found that the amount of connected devices in the world has grown 6.5x since 2006.

The survey, which buttonholed 100 CIOs, revealed more than four in five (83%) say ‘cloud sprawl’ makes IT management more complex. Looking at it another way, IT departments simply are not applying the same testing standards to the cloud as they would for in house IT services. One company, in the construction sector, found they had 300 copies of a cloud-based project management tool for only 200 project managers.

The numbers are slightly different from Reuters reported $878 million in H1 2015, but as we’ve covered before, both groups use slightly different reporting methodologies (see the CVCA’s methodology below).

  • The telcos’ perspective: Leading cross-industry business transformation through IoT

    28 Jul 2015 | 4:24 pm
    (c) The Internet of Things (IoT) is one of the most discussed topics in the telecoms industry today. With subscriber growth tapering off even in geographic regions that were late to mobile adoption and a host of over the top (OTT) players creating a challenging outlook for services beyond the traditional telecommunications space, it is understandable that communications service providers (CSPs) are looking for new opportunities. But while there is definitely a strong need for connectivity – the bread and butter of telecoms – in the IoT marketplace, the…
  • Luxembourg becomes latest country to roll out SIGFOX nationwide IoT network

    27 Jul 2015 | 4:25 pm
    (c) Global connectivity provider SIGFOX, in conjunction with partners POST Luxembourg and, has announced Luxembourg is the eighth country to deploy its nationwide Internet of Things (IoT) network. The Benelux nation, with a population of just over 500,000, follows Portugal, Belgium and Denmark, where plans were announced earlier this year. The network already operates in France, the Netherlands, Spain and the UK. SIGFOX claims its ultra narrow band (UNB) technology, alongside high-bandwidth cellular systems, provides economical, two-way transmission of smaller packets…
  • Is structural separation – or a ‘demerger’ – in the UK really that risky?

    27 Jul 2015 | 9:43 am
    (c) McCarthy Opinion I rarely disagree with the excellent Martyn Warwick, but sometimes there are exceptions. In an article in Telecom TV entitled BT Threatens Decades of Litigation Over Forced Sale of Openreach, Martyn concludes that: “An ill-considered and badly executed sale of Openreach with no guarantees as to its future performance by a new owner would be a recipe for disaster with the buyer breaking promises and failing to make the investments necessary to make Broadband Britain a reality outside the major cities. Meanwhile, Virgin Media goes from…
  • Why IoT is going through a difficult teenage phase

    24 Jul 2015 | 6:54 am
    (c) Uncommunicative data refuses to come out of its silo – and boy can it be difficult. As we all know, there are hundreds of benevolent IT developers who only want to do one thing – improve the world, one Internet working of Things at a time. Oh to be young and idealistic! In a way, they are like parents – they want the best and they can see possibilities that the offspring can’t. Tragically the IoT cannot benefit from the wisdom of their experience. In part, this is because it refuses to let them. Another major reason, it turns out, is that its…
  • Civil Aviation Authority releases "Dronecode" to reduce idiotic drone-flying

    22 Jul 2015 | 8:40 am
    (Image Credit: iStockPhoto/Piotr_roae) There have been some utter idiots behind the controls of drones - such as the one which nearly collided into an Airbus A320 landing at Heathrow, the person who mounted a semi-automatic handgun to one in a park, or another of the many other incidents caused by idiotic drone controllers who are now facing jail.  In the hope of clarifying rules around drones, the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) has launched the "Dronecode" in collaboration with NATS, the UK's global air traffic management company, and the pilots union…

    Smartphones are really a blessing (and a curse too!). Earlier we used our (mobile/cell) phones to make calls and that was it. But now smartphones are named aptly and the things they can do are increasing every day. We see new apps popping up to do just about anything. Things that used to be “impossible” have now become possible by smartphones and it is great to have these little wonders right in our hands. Smartphones have opened the windows to the outside world and has made the world and its vast knowledge so very small so those can fit into our hands. Right from helping with cooking,…

Once a deal has been agreed, whether you’re simply buying a coffee from a stand, or organising the takeover of a multi-million pound business, you want the payment to go through quickly and easily. It’s no surprise then, that with every generation of technology, we’ve looked to make processing payments that bit better for everyone. The advent of the internet was one of the first major changes in a long time – being able to bank online has meant that things like cheques are almost a thing of the past. It…
