    Marketing is a phenomenon unlike no other. But, as we steamroll our way through 2015; it’s worth noting that you need to be on top of your game when it comes to marketing. Mobile, in particular, is not a flash in the pan. It’s not a myth. It’s something that needs to be considered carefully for those that are in the business world. Every business needs to realise the potential of mobile. Let’s face it; the world isn’t going to get less mobile anytime soon.

    FCC Commissioner Tom Wheeler dismissed criticism of taking action to override North Carolina law on municipal broadband networks: "As they say in North Carolina, that dog won't hunt." Thus, the City of Wilson gains the right to expand its fiber network. But the issue is far from settled. U.S. Senator Thom Tillis is already fighting back.

    Richard Moss
    28 Feb 2015 | 5:07 pm
    Solar cells don't at first glance have any relation to a tiny structure in the eye that makes our central vision sharp, but that tiny structure – called the fovea centralis – may be the key to a huge boost in solar cell efficiency. A team of scientists at Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin and the Max Planck Institute for the Science of Light took the underlying mechanisms that guide the fovea and adapted them to silicon as a surface for collecting light in solar cells...

The trouble is, this piggybacking is often like trying to hitchhike cross country on a ride that only goes to the edge of town.

  • Regain your dignity after these embarrassing new job blunders

    The Daily Muse
    28 Feb 2015 | 5:20 pm
    Starting a new job is an exciting adventure. But it's also riddled with landmines of potential awkwardness — think getting lost on the way to the copier or mistaking your new colleague for the mail guy. The gaffes and blunders may be inevitable, but they can still catch you off guard if you're not prepared. The best teacher is experience, and luckily for you, I've had my share of cringe-worthy new job encounters over the years. Here are few of my favorites and how I recovered with my dignity — and my job — intact after each horrific incident 1. The CEO I didn't know It was…
  • Miami under water: Severe thunderstorms flood streets

    28 Feb 2015 | 5:14 pm
    Slow-moving thunderstorms dumped up to 8 inches of rain in the Miami metropolitan area Saturday, flooding downtown and elsewhere. Some parts of South Florida saw 10 inches of rain, according to radar estimates As up to 50 mile-per-hour winds whipped through the region and swaths of water flowed through the streets, drivers experienced a bumper-to-bumper bummer. The heavy rain also prompted the National Weather Service to issue flood advisories in some areas, including Boca Raton and Coconut Creek Flash flooding is a frequent event in south Florida during the wet season, but the region tends…
  • The latest Mac mini is low-priced, but doesn't skimp on power

    James Pikover
    28 Feb 2015 | 4:30 pm
    Desktop computers aren’t dead. Plenty of people use those anchored computers day in and day out, and for good reason: They’re more powerful and less expensive than their mobile counterparts.   The Mac mini has been Apple’s on-again off-again de facto low-budget desktop, but recently it hasn’t received the love many have hoped for. Then for the holiday season Apple upgraded the processor, chipset, hard drive, and everything else. That includes the price. The Mac mini now starts at $499. Full stop.

  • This Week In Techdirt History: February 22nd - 28th

    Leigh Beadon
    28 Feb 2015 | 12:00 pm
    Five Years Ago This week in 2010, we continued following the story of the school caught spying on students through webcams in their laptops, and the details were not looking good. Especially when we discovered the student in question was only guilty of eating candy. This was also the time of ACTA negotiations, and when the internet chapter leaked, we got a look at how sneaky the negotiators were being. We learned which countries were fighting hardest against ACTA transparency, and European officials were getting concerned about the agreement. Meanwhile, the UK was supposedly backing down on…
  • Not So Awesome Stuff: Your Worst Crowdfunding Project?

    Mike Masnick
    28 Feb 2015 | 9:00 am
    Let me start this post off by noting that I'm a huge fan of crowdfunding and think that it's an amazing force for all sorts of good things in art, culture and innovation. That's part of the reason why we do a weekly awesome stuff post highlighting interesting (and sometimes awesome) crowdfunding projects. But, it should be noted that crowdfunding projects don't always turn out great. There are plenty of horror stories to go around -- some involving what appear to be outright fraud, certainly -- mostly just because project creators are way overly optimistic on their ability to achieve their…
  • US Court Rules That Kim Dotcom Is A 'Fugitive' And Thus DOJ Can Take His Money

    Mike Masnick
    27 Feb 2015 | 7:39 pm
    In the long, convoluted and complex legal battles facing Megaupload founder Kim Dotcom, there was some bizarre stuff that happened late last year. As you may recall, early on, the US government seized basically all of his stuff and money. Dotcom has made efforts to get some of it returned, as it's tough to fight the most powerful government in the world when it's holding onto all of your money. Keep in mind from our previous discussions on asset seizure and forfeiture, the government can basically seize whatever it wants, just by claiming it was somehow related to a crime, but the seizure is…
  • White House Releases Draft 'Privacy' Bill That's Not Very Good

    Mike Masnick
    27 Feb 2015 | 6:23 pm
    It's been talked about for a while, but on Friday, the White House released a draft of what it's calling a "Consumer Privacy Bill of Rights." Conceptually, that sounds like a decent idea, but in practice? Not so much. Yes, it's just a draft, but it's got a lot of vague hand-waving, and basically no one seems all that thrilled about it, either from the privacy advocate side or the tech company side. Also, it doesn't even address the biggest privacy concern of all: government surveillance and snooping. Privacy is, of course, one of those things that can be rather tricky to regulate, for a…
  • DailyDirt: Big Bones Are A Myth, But Obesity Has Legit Causes

    Michael Ho

    Some people are naturally skinny and able to eat almost anything they want without gaining weight. Obviously, there are also plenty of folks who need to watch their diets very carefully and exercise regularly to prevent unhealthy weight gain. The causes for obesity are not well understood, and while many observers like to say it's obvious that people need to expend more calories than they consume, the challenge of doing so isn't as simple as it sounds for many. There aren't any miracle diets or drugs, but as we study obesity and understand it more, there could be more palatable treatments…

  • Bandit Ultra Trail Race 2015 – Volunteering and Photos O’ Plenty

    24 Feb 2015 | 8:24 am
    Last year I signed up for the Bandit Ultra Trail Race 30k and the days leading up to the race I got sicker and sicker. The day before the race I thought I could pull it off even though I had massive body aches and felt like death warmed over. I picked up my bib and shirt but by the time I got home I was a wreck and had to DNS the race. This year I went back to the Bandit a week after running the Sean O’ Brien Marathon but went to volunteer. If you were in the race, I was one of the guys along with JK who helped steer 50k, 30k and 15k runners around the first loop then onto the first…
  • Sean O’Brien 50 50 100 Marathon Race Report 2015

    9 Feb 2015 | 8:20 am
    I got a little crazy in December and decided to sign up for my first ultra race. After some training I figured it made more sense to do a trail marathon first so with that I changed my registration from the Sean O’Brien 50K to the Marathon race on February 7, 2015. If you’re not familiar with the Sean O’Brien races, this is the second year for the races, held at Malibu Creek State Park in Agoura Hills. Last year runners could sign up for the Marathon, 50k or the 50 miler. The 50 miler turned into a playground for elite runners seeking to qualify for a coveted Western States…
  • Santa To The Sea Half Marathon and 2014 Recap

    3 Jan 2015 | 5:38 pm
    Over the past year I’ve run over 800 miles and raced three half marathons, three challenging trail races over 11 miles long and in several 5ks. I also dedicated a lot of training time to increasing my climbing and logged over 24,000 feet in elevation gain. I trained on several mountain ranges in Southern California and feel like I can knock out a half marathon run at any time, so I did. It’s been a couple of weeks since running the Santa To The Sea Half Marathon in Oxnard on Dec. 18. I was excited to tackle the course and try to set a PR for the half. The flat as a pancake course…
  • 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?

    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…

    Even for someone endlessly in awe of our ability to traverse continents in just a few hours, traveling is increasingly a chore. Anything I can add to trips to make them even a touch more enjoyable is nothing to sniff at. Coolpeds' briefcase e-scooter -- a suitcase with a built-in, motorized scooter -- may be just what I need to freshen up journeys. It's just as well there's a built-in transport system on this, given the suitcase alone weighs a whopping 17.4 pounds. It might be carry-on size, but it's far beyond typical carry-on luggage weight.
  • The Apple Watch Mystery Won't Be Solved March 9

    27 Feb 2015 | 11:30 am
    The fog shrouding the Apple Watch won't be lifted on March 9 when Apple is widely expected to tell us more about its forthcoming release. Apple's invite to its media event is characteristically coy, with its vague "Spring Forward," tease, which likely refers to the shift in daylight savings time -- and time itself. The Apple Watch event likely will fill in some knowledge gaps around functionality, as well as pricing, but the mystery is whether most of us new buyers suddenly will turn into watch wearers for longer than a few months.
  • DeepMind AI Exterminates Space Invaders, Pac-Man

    Researchers at Google's DeepMind subsidiary in England have developed an artificial agent they call a "deep Q-network" that learned to play 49 classic Atari 2600 arcade games by just diving in. The DQN algorithm performed at more than 75 percent of the level of a professional player in more than half the games, and came up with far-sighted strategies that let it achieve the maximum attainable scores in certain games, such as Breakout. IT outperformed previous machine learning methods in 43 of the games.
  • Malicious Emailers Find Healthcare Firms Juicy Prey

    26 Feb 2015 | 9:11 am
    Healthcare providers have garnered growing interest from hackers in recent months. More evidence of that trend appeared last week in a report on email trust. An email that appeared to come from a healthcare company was four times more likely to be fraudulent than an email purportedly from a social media company like Facebook, one of the largest creators of email on the Internet, Agari found. The report gives industries a TrustScore -- that is, a number that reflects the trustworthiness of email from companies within that industry group.
  • Pearl OS Could Be a Gem in the Making

    26 Feb 2015 | 5:00 am
    If you favor the OS X environment, Pearl OS might be a Linux distro to feed your fancy. Pearl OS is a revival of the discontinued Pear OS distro. It picks up where Pear left off in early 2014. Pearl OS has two desktop versions: XFCE and MATE. Both are based on Ubuntu Linux distro version 14.04 Mini release. The two flavors of Pearl OS are customized to look and act like the OS X operating system. But Pearl is Linux and not OS X. This distro runs Debian-based Linux applications. It does not run OS X software or have actual OS X functions.

  • Will Apple Watch Sell Millions or Fall Flat?

    28 Feb 2015 | 1:28 pm
    Apple just sent out invitations for a March 9 event that many predict will see the technology giant debut the Apple Watch, or at least offer some strategic news. With a "Spring Forward" tagline, it's not hard to guess that the Apple Watch is at the center of the event. Apple Watch will let you communicate from your wrist by sending and receiving messages and answering calls to your iPhone. With its iOS-based user interface customized for a smaller device, and the Digital Crown for scrolling, zooming and navigating without interfering with the display, Apple is expected to offer a unique smart…
  • Women Are Leaving the Tech Industry in Droves

    28 Feb 2015 | 9:04 am
    Ana Redmond launched into a technology career for an exciting challenge and a chance to change the world. She was well-equipped to succeed too: An ambitious math and science wiz, she could code faster, with fewer errors, than anyone she knew. In 2011, after 15 years, she left before achieving a management position. Garann Means became a programmer for similar reasons. After 13 years, she quit too, citing a hostile and unwelcoming environment for women. Neither expects to ever go back. "There are a lot of things that piled up over the years," Means said. "I didn't know how to move forward.
  • Net Neutrality Euphoria Passed, Now Will It Work?

    28 Feb 2015 | 8:57 am
    In the afterglow of the Federal Communications Commission's decision favoring Net Neutrality, supporters are having to face some tough issues that lie ahead. The order prohibits broadband providers from blocking, slowing or selling faster delivery of content flowing through their networks. By approving the regulations, the FCC granted the longstanding wishes of public-interest advocates, technology firms and Democrats to strengthen government oversight of the Internet and prevent abuses by broadband service providers. Even so, the debate over the issue will continue to rage. The fact that the…
  • Facebook Gender Options Are Now Unlimited

    28 Feb 2015 | 8:29 am
    Facebook users who don't fit any of the 58 gender identity options offered by the social media giant are now being given a rather big 59th option: fill in the blank. "Now, if you do not identify with the pre-populated list of gender identities, you are able to add your own," said a Facebook announcement published online Thursday morning and shared in advance with The Associated Press. Facebook software engineer Ari Chivukula, who identifies as transgender and was part of the team that made the free-form option, thinks the change will lead to more widespread acceptance of people who don't…
  • Apple's Launch Event: Gadget Stars and Device Cameos

    28 Feb 2015 | 8:26 am
    An Apple launch event planned for March seems assured to focus on the Cupertino company's smartwatch, but experts say there is a chance Apple will show off another new gadget. Apple on Thursday sent out an invitation to a March 9 event at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in San Francisco, while offering little information about the topic. The colorful invite said only "Spring forward," seemingly a reference to the beginning of Daylight Saving Time the day before the event. The reference to time in Apple's invitation and the event's proximity to the April launch of the Apple Watch…

  • A Failed Hacker Unmasking Exercise

    Bill Brenner
    10 Feb 2015 | 5:26 am
    “A ridiculous article which purports to show us the face of a hacker…” — Chris Wysopal, CTO of Veracode, in a tweet The ability of media outlets to create sophisticated images and graphics is light years beyond what it was when I was a young journalist in the 1990s. The technology has spawned a lot of cool projects, like this visual of a botnet from my former employer, The enhanced capability also leads to some truly ridiculous creations. For example, this Secure Thoughts piece on “hackers unmasked.” The writer asks, “Who are the…

She kicks it off with me. In this series, I asked infosec professionals to name 3 books that changed their life. This entry includes picks from journalist, writer and podcaster Bill Brenner.

  • Could Huawei be tasked with making a new Nexus phone?

    27 Feb 2015 | 9:10 am
    Google’s Nexus range is generally considered to one of the highlights of the Android world, despite the fact that all the hardware comes from other phone makers. In the past we’ve had Nexus devices from Motorola, HTC, LG, Samsung, and Asus, but this year’s model? That could be getting handed over to Huawei. According to a report on Chinese social networking site Weibo, Google will be partnering with a Chinese phone company to produce one of two Nexus devices coming out later this year. It doesn’t specify who that manufacturer is, but TechRadar offers a compelling…

  • As of next week, UK drivers can contest speeding tickets online

    Tom Pritchard
    27 Feb 2015 | 5:37 am
    In another move to try and free up the time of police and prosecutors, the government has decided that drivers who have been convicted of a low-level traffic offence, like speeding, will be able to contest the offence online. According to the Ministry of Justice, this move is designed to “modernise the courts and other public services”. All drivers will have to do is head to the ‘Make a Plea’ website on their phone or computer, and they can contest the offence 24 hours a day. That certainly makes that pesky ’33mph in a 30 zone’ speeding ticket a lot…

    27 Feb 2015 | 8:56 am
    Whilst most big companies offer customer support via Twitter, Microsoft is going the extra mile and will now be offering support to Xbox One gamers on Reddit. Given that Reddit is one of the biggest websites in the world, and one particularly frequented by gamers the move makes perfect sense. It seems that initially at least /u/Xbox_Support will be patrolling /r/xboxone/. The account won’t be manned 24/7, with it sticking to US west coast office hours – but it could still prove useful for gamers who need more than 140 characters to express the help they need. It’ll also be…

    A new app called PhotoMath has just launched on the Android app store and it could really help with tricky maths homework. The way it works is by using the camera to photograph equations. The app will then figure out what you need to know, and then figure out what x is equal to. Best of all, it will even guide you through step-by-step so you can see how it got to the answer. As the app is only in its first release, it can’t solve everything – so don’t expect a solution to the Hodge Conjecture just yet, but here’s what the developers say that it can tackle:…

The move could conceivably mean that we start seeing URLs like or to jump straight to those apps in the Google Play store. The news follows Amazon recently buying “.buy” and “.spot”.

    "Mirror, mirror, on the wall, who's the most corrupt of them all?"There is this story from the Bible [John 8: 1-11], of a 'condemned' woman, about to be stoned as the 'rules' then required, being brought infront of Jesus. His simple response was to ask anyone from the crowd who had never sinned, to throw the first stone. Each one of the accusers slithered away.I tried to imagine. If this incident had happened in the world we are living in today, not only would she have been stoned by the very people who had 'caught' her, each one of them; her captors would most likely also have been her past…

If not for anything but for the fact that we have another electrifying album in our hands. This time from Jeremy Camp. To Christian music lovers Jeremy Camp needs no formal introduction; the 37-year-old father of three has sold over four million albums including four RIAA Gold-certified albums, a RIAA Multi-Platinum long-form video and a Gold-certified digital single.

  • Amazing Solar Time Lapse from NASA [Video]

    James Cooper
    28 Feb 2015 | 5:00 am
    We all love a good time lapse and this one is pretty special. The video has been released by NASA to mark the 5th Anniversary of the Solar Dynamics Observatory, a satellite which observes the earth facing side of the sun. The SDO takes a photo nearly once a second and since its launch has captured over 200 million photos and 2,600 terabytes of data! The results are truly spectacular and look like something from Doctor Who or a Jonathan Nolan film – but it’s real! I found it really inspiring. You just don’t think of all that going on up there above our heads! You can find…

    Just when you thought you cared about selfies too much, Kim Kardashian proves you wrong. An OK! magazine story reports that the star pays a Photoshop retoucher $100,000 a year so that her Instagram photos look flawless. Yes, $100,000. It seems like an absurd notion, but we wouldn't be surprised since Kim is even publishing a selfie book. Do you think the supposed professional photoshopper got into trouble last year after Kim's Instagram editing scandal? At this point, nothing Kardashian-related would shock us.

Seeing that Windows 10 will ship in a few months and Type-C has already been approved, it makes perfect sense that the company will support the new connector natively from day one. Comments
  • Microsoft Man: Internet Explorer Had to Go Because It's Garbage

    28 Feb 2015 | 2:02 pm
    The title says it all, but it's not something you would expect to hear directly from Microsoft. The company decided to completely jettison Internet Explorer from the upcoming Windows 10 in favor of its new Project Spartan browser. The main complaint about IE was dragging the vestiges of older Internet Explorer versions that were non-compliant, creating unnecessary problems for new versions of IE (10/11). Recent versions of IE have included various backward-compatibility modes that force the browser to repeat the errors of earlier versions. Comments

  • The Future of Social Business 2015

    10 Feb 2015 | 5:36 am
    Bjoern Negelmann and the Gartner Hype Curve of Social Business I wrote up 2 notes in our Agile Elephant Blog (over here and here) on the state of Social Business today, but here is a summary: In essence I buy Bjoern Negelmann's analysis at the Enterprise 2.0 Summit in Paris last week that it is in the Slough of Despond phase, and the only way is up (see picture above). This is confirmed in my view by the latest McKInsey report on the subfect, which essentially notes that it is here to stay, and more and more companies expect to expand its usage. I also think the fact that two "New New" memes…
  • Digital Chindits

    31 Jan 2015 | 12:04 am
    The British Army has resurrected the Chindits, one of the special force units used in WW2 to operate behind enemy lines - in their case to operate behind Japanese lines in Burma. It was formed by Brigadier Orde Wingate following a successful usage of Boer commando style tactics in the British/Commonwealth reconquest of Italian East Africa in 1940. The new Chindits are to fight behind the lines in the digital wars - Torygraph: ...the new unit's focus will be on "unconventional" non-lethal, non-military methods such as "shaping behaviours through the use of dynamic narratives", an Army…

    Google to stop making Glass "In present form" Google is to stop producing its wearable technology Google Glass in its present form, but is still committed to the idea of smart glasses, the company has said. The technology, which delivers news, messages and calls directly to a user’s field of view, has been on sale in the UK since June, and in the US since 2013. In a statement posted to its Google+ account, the company said the Glass team would move out of the “Google X” incubator labs and become a separate division. What the "New New" form will be is anybody's guess, but I'd suspect it…

    The next edition of Charlie Hebdo went on sale on Wednesday, and the production run was up from 60,000 to c 5 million - and rather than c 25% of 60,000 copies being remaindered, this time 5 million was probably not enough. (The money will be going to support the families of those killed, though there is a bit of a sour note starting with people trying to sell copies on eBay) If the aim of the shootings was to cow Hebdo and its satire it has been a complete failure so far, and also far any attempt to further inflame France (if anything the UK media seems more cowed than the French).

The Pebble watch turned out to be a huge success because of its 7 day battery life and cross platform support. With competition from other wearables in the market, Pebble set out to make a new smartwatch.

This gadget is meant to solve all the clutter of remotes to control gadgets around you. The concept of one single universal remote for all isn’t novel. But a remote worthy of the 21st century design and features was yet to be surfaced. Looking at all these requirements, Ray’s Super Remote seems to be a valid creation.

Especially when we discovered the student in question was only guilty of eating candy.

We learned which countries were fighting hardest against ACTA transparency, and European officials were getting concerned about the agreement. Meanwhile, the UK was supposedly backing down on…
  • Not So Awesome Stuff: Your Worst Crowdfunding Project?

    Let me start this post off by noting that I'm a huge fan of crowdfunding and think that it's an amazing force for all sorts of good things in art, culture and innovation. That's part of the reason why we do a weekly awesome stuff post highlighting interesting (and sometimes awesome) crowdfunding projects. But, it should be noted that crowdfunding projects don't always turn out great. There are plenty of horror stories to go around -- some involving what appear to be outright fraud, certainly -- mostly just because project creators are way overly optimistic on their ability to achieve their…
  • US Court Rules That Kim Dotcom Is A 'Fugitive' And Thus DOJ Can Take His Money

    Mike Masnick
    27 Feb 2015 | 7:39 pm
    In the long, convoluted and complex legal battles facing Megaupload founder Kim Dotcom, there was some bizarre stuff that happened late last year. As you may recall, early on, the US government seized basically all of his stuff and money. Dotcom has made efforts to get some of it returned, as it's tough to fight the most powerful government in the world when it's holding onto all of your money. Keep in mind from our previous discussions on asset seizure and forfeiture, the government can basically seize whatever it wants, just by claiming it was somehow related to a crime, but the seizure is…
  • White House Releases Draft 'Privacy' Bill That's Not Very Good

    27 Feb 2015 | 6:23 pm
    It's been talked about for a while, but on Friday, the White House released a draft of what it's calling a "Consumer Privacy Bill of Rights." Conceptually, that sounds like a decent idea, but in practice? Not so much. Yes, it's just a draft, but it's got a lot of vague hand-waving, and basically no one seems all that thrilled about it, either from the privacy advocate side or the tech company side. Also, it doesn't even address the biggest privacy concern of all: government surveillance and snooping. Privacy is, of course, one of those things that can be rather tricky to regulate, for a…

    Some people are naturally skinny and able to eat almost anything they want without gaining weight. Obviously, there are also plenty of folks who need to watch their diets very carefully and exercise regularly to prevent unhealthy weight gain. The causes for obesity are not well understood, and while many observers like to say it's obvious that people need to expend more calories than they consume, the challenge of doing so isn't as simple as it sounds for many. There aren't any miracle diets or drugs, but as we study obesity and understand it more, there could be more palatable treatments…

    So yesterday, I went to the Microsoft Store at the Domain, and traded in my just under a month old i5 128GB Surface Pro 3 for the top of the line i7 500GB model. I did this with funds I made from selling my Cintiq Companion this past week on Amazon Marketplace for ~$78 more net profit than I originally paid for it (thanks to getting it this summer when Wacom was running a summer ~$500 off sale + Cintiq Companion’s being hard to come by currently while everyone awaits the release of the newly announced Cintiq Companion 2).

In any case, if you like the things I tend to write and do and you want to motivate me to keep doing these things / do them more often, I set up a Patreon page where you can become a patron. Although, I must say, although I like the idea behind Patreon, I don’t like the execution much. It’s very inflexible. Why can’t I set up different types of patronage for different endeavors at different price points? Why is everything either recurring by month or recurring by thing created?

Nimoy himself was never comfortable being equated with the character he played for, it’s easy to forget, not all that long. Outside of the few seasons of the original Star Trek and subsequent movies he starred in, Nimoy’s life was dominated by lesser-known pursuits.

    Huawei is about to make its presence felt at MWC with the announcement of the Huawei Watch. The watch itself was first spotted yesterday on a billboard, but we now have full promo videos for this Android Wear-powered beauty that will be made official in a few hours. Posted to the Huawei YouTube channel, two videos walk through the design process for the watch and also show how cheesy Euros are when they take vacations with their brosephs. Aside from the cheese, the videos do show one of the prettiest (this actually might be the prettiest) smartwatches we have seen to date. It features…

    Although long talked about, the Ubuntu Edge campaign exemplified the concept best with its "super phone" boast: your phone would hook up to a monitor, mouse and keyboard and become a fully functioning Ubuntu desktop PC. Phone apps would run on the desktop in an appropriate guise like responsive websites do on phones. Today, ahead of Mobile World Congress next month, Ubuntu Desktop Manager Will Cooke has posted a three-minute video that shows how Canonical's engineering team is progressing.

  • Genode 15.02 adds support for ARM virtualization

    27 Feb 2015 | 1:50 pm
    With version 15.02, the Genode OS project complements its existing virtualization support for the x86 architecture with virtualization on ARM by turning their base-hw kernel into a microhypervisor. Besides virtualization, the most prominent underlying theme of the current release is the project's increasing focus on test automation and optimization. Virtualization has a long history within the Genode project. After originally focusing on paravirtualized Linux kernels (L4Linux and OKLinux), the added support for the NOVA kernel and the Vancouver VMM in 2011 cleared the way towards…

Apart from power-packed hardware the Google Android 4.4 based MIUI6 ROM on the software front has been a big reason the phone is a huge success and is often compared to the likes of Apple iPhone 6 despite being cheaper almost three times to it. The company offers two versions of their official MIUI ROM - the "Stable Version" which comes pre-installed with Google services like "Google Play Store" and the "Development Version" which gets frequent updates, does not have Google services…

    No doubt, there are hundreds of posts this morning in which bloggers are trying to explain the top 10 this or that’s about the episode of Modern Family that aired last night (“Connection Lost,” Season 6, Episode 16). For that reason, I haven’t read any blog posts regarding the show. If this sounds like I’m borrowing the observation of others, I’m actually not (this time, at least). I did read one review and it was insightful (unlike this post, perhaps). It’s written by Gwen Ihnat at AV Club. She calls the episode, “A gimmicky but successful…

    Almost three years ago, to the day, I blogged about Pinterest users (and users of other social media platforms) understanding the reality that if you use a platform controlled by someone else, you are a hamster in their cage (a metaphor I first learned from Dave Winer). The post I wrote three years ago, “Just Because You Can Make Money From Something, Doesn’t Mean You Should, and Other Rules of the Web,” was about Pinterest being accused of “skimming links” — the practice of finding links on their platform  that go to ecommerce sites and converting those…

    This morning, there are countless remembrances of New York Times columnist David Carr, who died suddenly last night in Manhattan. Most are from the journalists with whom he worked, befriended and inspired. While David Carr and I share a few professional friends and acquaintances, besides a couple of brief chats at SXSW functions or media conferences in New York (the kind that all blur together), I never knew him, knew him.

Demand is so high that if you’re not already a customer, they won’t even take your order — at least until a second plant opens later this year. “So how does a record get made?

    Occasionally (okay, frequently), people share with me their ideas for a new product or business. More times than not, the ideas are  clever.  But then I go all Debbie Downer1 on them and tell them that success rarely hinges on the idea. Execution, I say. It’s all about execution. And luck. A couple of years ago, I saw this quote from Steve Jobs that he said in 1995 interview  after returning to Apple. 2 “You know, one of the things that really hurt Apple was after I left, John Sculley got a very serious disease.

There was so much going on that it was a bit of sensory overload, much like walking down the Las Vegas strip for the first time. Google announced many welcomed Android improvements such as a battery saver mode and lock-screen notifications; something you'd previously need to use add-ons for as mentioned in Android is better. More uses of the Android operating system emerged: Android Wear, Android Auto and Android TV. A smartphone won't be the only thing that comes to…

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

  • Mountain Dew vs. Doritos: Using Europa Universalis IV's expansion to settle the score

    28 Feb 2015 | 4:00 am
    Which is better: Doritos or Mountain Dew? It's a question that's plagued philosophers since at least the time of Plato. And now, thanks to Europa Universalis IV, it's a question that's been definitively answered...through science! Yesterday Paradox released the El Dorado expansion for Europa Universalis IV which has all sorts of probably-cool things like new ocean exploration mechanics, legendary cities to discover, et cetera. What it also has is a Custom Nation designer. Being a responsible reporter, I immediately used this for the dumbest of ideas: Creating a massive Doritos Empire and a…

    Rich Julius, Principal Product Manager, Progress Easyl Rich Julius introduces 7 data preparation and data blending challenges that delay timely analytics. The driving force behind business intelligence and analytics is a need for information. Every day, we ask questions such as, “How good are we at converting leads?” Or, “Which of our marketing campaigns is the most successful?” Finding answers to these seemingly simple questions, however, is much easier said than done. The people asking the questions just want answers, and often don’t understand why it takes so long to get them.

    Data integration is a crucial part of every Big Data strategy. Data drives decisions. That piece of wisdom is often taken for granted, but businesses still seem to struggle with it. They continuously gather data, but rarely do they use it to its fullest potential. They track clicks on their websites and sensor readings from Internet of Things (IoT) devices that capture important customer buying behavior, geolocation data and other business-related information. Then they shovel it all into a data warehouse where web traffic and sales data and data from SaaS applications all have their own,…

    Tamar Weinberg
    11 Feb 2015 | 6:46 am
    What is the value of social media as it relates to retail ROI? Is there a point in putting sharing buttons on my e-commerce website if I don’t know how that translates to actionable data regarding revenue? Everyone is doing things with respect to social, but in e-commerce, what is the point? Can I even truly attribute social data to return on investment? These are good and absolutely fair questions.

Seven years ago, I didn’t believe inbox zero was ever possible. Today, I sell training modules on my inbox zero process.

  • Why Customer Service is the Future of Social Marketing

    Tamar Weinberg
    28 Oct 2014 | 5:30 am
    In 2006, social media was building steam in the United States. With the rise of Facebook’s popularity, the launch of Twitter, and the surge of influence from social news sites like Digg, social media looked to be a great breeding ground for marketers to make their mark. And make their marks they did. Digg was an incredibly powerful platform to drive traffic and pageviews to reasonably good content. Initially, the network really had the cream of the Internet crop on its frontpage, and the “Digg effect” would take websites down just like that. Visitors flocked to the homepage…

It requires a mindset of tuning into those communications, but because they come from so many different directions, it also requires a toolset. I won’t give it away, but after running a social media customer service department 100% singlehandledly and helping our customer base grow from about a half a million customers to over 1 million (through social media almost exclusively), I have a few tricks and tips up my sleeve.

    Within the last 6 weeks, I’ve begun to understand why Facebook is such a narcissistic medium. If you’re sad, no one wants to deal with you. They may give you support, but if every post was sad and depressing, that trickles down to how you ultimately end up feeling. If you’re controversial, someone else will have another opinion and unfriend you. Happiness (without ego) is the only way to maintain good friendships, and usually, doesn’t impart negative judgments. Let’s dig into the second item there: controversy. As of late, there’s been a pretty big trend…

    This is probably my third or forth Logitech keyboard for iPad and this one by far is the closest one to being perfect. The Logitech Type+ is a both a bluetooth keyboard and protective case.

It’s hard to imagine that what started out as a product that most people at the time didn’t even understand why we’d need it, would become such a phenomenon that entire industries have been built upon. I of course like many of you begin to think back to the first version of Photoshop that I ever used. For me it was Photoshop 2.0.

But we must constantly be opening new opportunities. We must consistently create new opportunities for our sales function. If all you do is close, eventually, you’re walled in, trapped, with no opportunities (for growth) in sight. Your pipeline will run dry. To open, we must systematically communicate our value to people who can buy it. That’s all marketing is. To open, to grow, me must market.   The…

One of the Slender Man suspects, Anissa Weierm, who was 12 at the time of the crime, seemed anxious and somewhat remorseful.

    Apple just knows perfectly how to cut the wind out of the sails of anything interesting that the world of Android comes up with. It was just a bit of common sense and you could tell with the timelines that Apple would be active around MWC to draw all the attention to itself, and that is exactly what has happened. The first week of March is all set to about MWC and the latest and greatest in the mobile world, but surely one event that everybody would now be looking forward to the most would be the announced Apple Press/ Media event on March 9th.

    While Whatsapp and the likes of Hike make all the noise in the IM market, one application that has a lot of good features as well as is being really appreciated for the work is Telegram.

  • Motorola Moto E Second Gen Announced

    25 Feb 2015 | 8:20 pm
    Motorola has taken the wraps off the second generation of the Motorola Moto E. It was initially expected that the device will be announced somewhere in MWC but that hasn’t been the case. The first generation of Motorola Moto E had lead the wave of budget friendly smartphones in India and the world generally. It was the device that prompted devices like Micromax Unite 2, RedMi 1s and several others which forged their way in the sub Rs 7,000 category. The new Moto E is as expected an iterative design rather than a brand new design from ground up. There are heavy cues from the existing…

    24 Feb 2015 | 8:35 pm
    Sony intentionally or unintentionally gave away that the Xperia Z4 tablet is going to be hitting the markets soon. And by soon we mean, it is pretty much confirmed in the leak that the tablet is set for a March 3 launch. While none of the leaks usually give out an exact date this one does. The news comes after it was spotted on Sony’s Official Lounge app, the listing of the tablet. The captured screenshot only tells that the tablet will be equipped with a 2K display and nothing other than it would come with Blazing Fast processor, which let us be honest is not much to brag about. The…

  • 5 Reasons why Wireless Charging Never Caught on

    Aditya Shenoy
    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…

    15 Feb 2015 | 10:38 pm
    With new smartphone recycling websites coming up everyday, it can be very confusing as to where to sell your smartphone for the best possible deal and get the most money. To get the maximum possible price, where you choose to sell your smartphone becomes very important. It often depends on a number of factors like timing of sale, local demand, type and model of your device, and the age factor.

    Why You Still Need to Worry About Your Android Security — Even If You Have Lollipop With the release of the latest version of the Android operating system, version 5.0 or Lollipop, many people are convinced that it’s the most secure version yet. With new features like SmartLock and automatic encryption, proponents claim that Android phones are now completely safe from any type of data theft.

    By now, it’s clear: Cloud computing isn’t going anywhere. In fact, recent surveys indicate that just about 90 percent of all companies are using some form of cloud service, most often for storage. However, some small businesses are still hesitant to make the leap to the cloud, for various reasons. Security concerns are at the forefront of most entrepreneur’s minds; the consequences of a security breach can be devastating to a small business, so many simply opt to keep all functions in-house.

  • Easily Convert DVD To iPhone6 With DVDFab DVD Ripper

    26 Nov 2014 | 12:09 am
    How often have you wished there was an easy way to watch all the favorite movies on DVDs on your iPhones and iPads? Despite of so many DVD rippers available today in the market, most of them are often too clumsy or take too long time to convert DVDs to supported video formats. 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.

And it’s just the beginning. While the military has been using drones since the 1970s, it was arguably Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos’ December 2013 announcement of his company’s plan to offer 30 minute product deliveries via drones that brought them to the mainstream. Whether or not such a delivery service pans out is less important than the buzz (no pun intended) it created – as a kickstart for the drone industry.

    16 Feb 2015 | 7:07 am
    Microsoft’s upcoming API, named DirectX 12 has increased performance for AMD’s APUs and in the act, has granted the chips to hold their own against Intel’s current generation i3 processor. The benchmarking details were covered by Anandtech, which show the level of improvement DirectX 12 brings to the table. The APUs that that were being benchmarked belong to AMD’s Kaveri APU lineup and are as follows: A10-7800 A8-7600 Currently, the A10-7800 carries a price tag of $141.99, followed by the lesser performing APU, which costs $99.99.

    Initially, there were rumors disseminating concerning the leading chip maker’s flagship mobile chipset, the Snapdragon 810, where the core subject revolved around the chip suffering from overheating issues. This was reported to be the reasons why Samsung chose to abandon the company’s chipset. However, Samsung’s ulterior motive was to incorporate its own Exynos 7420 SoC and loose Qualcomm’s grip on the market. It appears that Qualcomm claims that its Snapdragon 810 was working flawlessly were true all along. In fact, the 64 bit capable chipset also runs cooler than the company’s…

    Months before the launching of Apple Watch, the device becomes more interesting than it has so far been anticipated. Apparently, Apple’s smartwatch will be diabetes friendly as it will bring blood glucose tracking to its user’s wrist. DexCom, a medical technology company, has developed the FDA approved app that will do the job. The app will work with a tiny sensor called the CGM that is needed to be embedded under the skin. The sensor (CGM) will transmit data to a remotely located device, which after interpreting the data, will communicate with the iPhone app. Apple Watch will display…

    After ditching Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 810 chipset for its own Exynos 7420 chipset, Samsung’s next objective in order to loosen the chipmaker’s grip on the mobile chipset market share is by offering a modem inside its own ‘system on a chip’. By doing this, the South Korean phone giant’s chips will be able to put up a colossal fight against the leading mobile chipmaker in the world, which is currently dominating with a 68 percent market share (according to an October 2014 report). While Samsung’s Exynos 7420 chipset will not be featuring a modem inside the chip, upcoming variants…

But this one has a few “smart” features to bring it into that category. But if you’ve come to expect the ability check notifications or playback music, you won’t find that here. What sets the Touch Zero One apart is it works for beach volleyball. It tracks your steps and hits.

  • NYT vs Buzzfeed: Valuations Discrepancies – Part II

    Frédéric Filloux
    22 Feb 2015 | 11:39 am
      by Frédéric Filloux My last column about new valuations in digital media triggered an abundance of comments. Here are my responses and additions to the discussion.  The most revealing part of argument used by those who tweeted (800 of them), commented or emailed me, is how many wished things to remain simple and segregated: legacy vs. native media, content producers vs. service providers, ancestral performances indicators and, of course, the self-granted permission to a certain category of people to decide what is worthy. Too bad for cartesian minds and simplifiers, the digital…
  • Apple Car: Three More Thoughts

    Jean-Louis Gassée
    22 Feb 2015 | 11:37 am
      by Jean-Louis Gassée [Update appended] Beside free publicity, and huge amounts of it, the putative Apple Car raises interesting questions about car manufacturing, the future of automobiles, and the part that an interloper such as Apple could play in this century-old industry.  The volume of comments and Twitter traffic in reaction to last week’s Monday Note, The Fantastic Apple Car, was just one small rivulet in this week’s gusher of rumors, jokes, and proclamations about Apple becoming a car manufacturer. Bloomberg takes the car as fait accompli, telling us that “Apple…is…

      by Frédéric Filloux Some legacy media assets are vastly underestimated. A few clues in four charts.    Recent annual reports and estimates for the calendar year 2014 suggest interesting comparisons between the financial performance of media (either legacy or digital) and Internet giants. In the charts below, I look at seven companies, each in a class by itself: A few explanations are required. For two companies, in order to make comparisons relevant, I broke down “digital revenues” as they appear in financial statements: $351m for the New York Times ($182m in digital…

      by Jean-Louis Gassée Forget the iWatch, Apple Pay, and the iPhone 7…the next big thing from Cupertino will be the Apple Car. At first, I didn’t pay much attention to the Apple Car rumors. I saw them as the another wave of clickbait along the lines of the wiped-out Apple Television Set canards. I even thought of writing a little parody piece: WinCar, Microsoft Disrupts The Auto Industry. After penetrating offices and homes, Microsoft will now hitch a ride in the third most important location (and time slice) in peoples’ lives: The Car. As part of Satya Nadella’s Mobile First…

    8 Feb 2015 | 9:56 am
      by Jean-Louis Gassée Apple’s most recent quarterly numbers broke all sorts of records and, as we shall see, a number of laws. Apple just released its numbers for the quarter ending last December, the first quarter of its 2015 Fiscal Year. The figures are astonishing: iPhones:  Apple sold 74.5M, + 57% over last year’s same quarter. iPhone revenue was $51.2B, + 57%. That’s enough iPhones for 1% of the world population, 9.4 iPhones for every second of the past quarter. I hope to see some day a documentary movie on the supply chain heroics leading (parts manufacturing,…

Being positive somehow becomes harder especially when you know that for each piece of happiness you find, one wrong move can make it all go away. However, you should also remember that bad things happen everyday, even to the best kinds of people. This is why you only have two choices: stay negative and brace yourself for the bad that’s going to happen or be positive and sail through the bad things with less drama. 1. Find the good in the bad.

    Recovery Audit Contractors (RAC) audits, as physicians know, are part of the government’s program to reduce fraud, waste, and errors in medical billing practices, especially Medicare and Medicaid. Improper payments include incorrect payment amounts, miscoding, non-covered services including those that are not reasonable and necessary, and duplicate services.

It’s important to know the facts. Many young adults are putting off buying health insurance through the exchange and think they would be better off paying the penalty of $95 a year or 1% of their income (whichever is higher). With plans on state-based exchanges costing as much as $200 to $300, young people also feel that it would be better to sign up for Obamacare only when they have a serious health…

    At the 2015 IBM Interconnect conference, Jay Venega and Brian Turner of IBM, and Steve Klos of and 1E discussed how software vendors are adapting to the requirements placed on them by their customers for more accurate software information and the ability to automate IT operations. The presentation focused on SWID tags and how they can be used to accurately identify the software vendor specific details for software installed on a device.  IBM is now distributing SWID tags with all software products except those targeted for mainframe systems.   Copies of the presentation are…
  • 5 things to fix before you consider Windows 10

    Well, we talked about the five reasons not to migrate to Windows 8, but instead to skip straight to Windows 10, and since you believe that was 100% solid, let us talk now about what you need to do in order to be prepared for that jump to diez.  Or, as we like to call it within the CM community, the process of “please, oh please, do not let Windows 7 happen to me again.” In all seriousness, Windows 7 was tough for everyone, and I mean everyone within an enterprise IT environment.  This OS migration effort was the hardest hitting to date and is one of those topics where no matter who is…
  • 5 Reasons to skip Windows 8 and go direct to Windows 10

    Shawn Cardamon
    23 Feb 2015 | 6:22 am
    Right down to business, let’s talk about the top five reasons I personally see to skip Windows 8, and go direct to Windows 10. Through a ton of exposure to numerous IT firms during my time as a ConfigMgr admin and Solutions Engineer, I see the path ahead and it is not Windows 8 for most organizations. This advice should be taken in context of course, as this mindset applies to the greater audience of enterprise IT and not your trendy tech firm stocked with people who build their own PCs on a regular basis. Oh, and if you are reading this and asking yourself the question “is 1E on Windows…
  • Energy cost are dropping, should we care about PC Power Management anymore?

    Simon Rust
    20 Feb 2015 | 2:42 am
    Recently, the cost of oil has dropped significantly (presently under US$50 per barrel – by way of comparison, the same barrel was over US$100 during the summer of 2014) and as a direct result we are seeing the costs associated with the provision of energy to homes and businesses drop. So, given that we are automatically getting cheaper energy provision, do we really need to care about PC power management? The answer of course is usually “it depends” but typically businesses are not just targeting themselves on their direct operating costs, but also other measurements such as their…

    Adobe, Anthem, EBay, JP Morgan Chase, Home Depot, Sony, Target – household names that have all had data breaches due to Cyberattacks.  These cyber-attacks appear to be focused on accessing personal customer data that could be used for financial scams.  According to the APT1 Report from Mandiant, hundreds of terabytes of data from at least 141 organizations has also been stolen in a cyber-espionage effort from individuals in China.  Regardless if it’s customer data or intellectual property, this data should not be leaving these corporations. Most people will never know exactly how these…

    6 Feb 2015 | 8:59 pm
    You've probably noticed that I use some pretty big photos on each blog post here. That should mean big file sizes - but it doesn't have to. When you take a high resolution digital photo and simply resize it for your web site you are NOT compressing it. Or if you are, then you are probably not compressing it as much as you could be. Lets take the photo on this post as an example. The original photo from is 720kb and 2511 × 1671 pixels. I only need an image that is 790 x 420 so I will use Preview on my mac to resize and crop it.

    I use a macbook air as my only computer and I do not have an external display. This means that my screen has a maximum resolution of 1440 x 900. For those of you with multiple monitor setups you might think it is odd but it works for me and forces me to concentrate on the task at hand (or it would if I didn't have a tablet and phone as well).

How was my laptop displaying at a higher resolution when connected…

    In all the years that I have used Joomla I have never really seen the need for front end editing. Why bother? I could just do everything in the admin. There were always too many things that I couldn't do on the front end that meant I was forever switching between the two. Editing your site can be hard I get it that people don't want to be bothered with the complex interface of the administrator and prefer to edit their content in place. This has been possible for a very long time in Joomla for content items but not for modules. So you still needed to switch to the admin interface to edit…

    24 Feb 2015 | 7:19 pm
    A friend of mine’s son recently returned from an extended absence which basically removed him from nearly all aspects of technology, including the Internet, for a bit longer than 5 years. Upon return, observing him restore his awareness of technologies and absorb all things new developed over the past 5 years was both exciting and moving. To be fair, the guy grew up in an Internet world, with access to online resources including Facebook, Twitter, and other social applications. The interesting part of his re-introduction to the “wired” world was watching the comprehension flashes he…

    26 Jan 2015 | 3:28 pm
    Risk management has been around for a long time.  Financial managers run risk assessments for nearly all business models, and the idea of risk carries nearly as many definitions as the Internet.  However, for IT managers and IT professionals, risk management still frequently takes a far lower priority that other operations  and support activities. For IT managers a good, simple definition for RISK may be from the Open FAIR model which states: “Risk is defined as the probable frequency and magnitude of future loss”   Risk management should follow a structured process acknowledging…

  • Redefining WAN in Light of Cloud

    Tracy Corbo
    17 Feb 2015 | 6:32 am
    Thanks in large part to investor-driven demand for constant double-digit growth, the WAN optimization market has taken a substantial beating, and as a result the term “WAN optimization” has become something of a lament. Vendors looking to distance themselves from the term have latched onto the “software-defined” bandwagon, and the result is “SDN WAN” or “SD WAN.” However, the need for WAN optimization is not going away; in fact, it is only going to increase because the WAN is a critical component of cloud-based deployment models. Cloud is not a magic fix for all that ails IT.

    Have you ever tried to create a major slide presentation on a tablet? Or edit a large spreadsheet? Or write a long document? Probably not. While it’s certainly possible to perform more substantial business tasks on a tablet, the small screen real estate and limited system resources (e.g., processing speed, memory, graphic support, etc.) are typically insufficient in current tablet form factors. However, carrying a laptop around with you everywhere you go just so you can access email is not very practical either. The reality is that we live in a multi-device world where the average worker…

    Flash technology has proven to be a disruptive force in the storage marketplace. Server and network performance gains over the last decade have been substantial, but the hard drive performance needle has hardly moved. This situation has resulted in server utilization being reduced while waiting on storage input output (I/O) operations to be completed. Server virtualization has further contributed to this situation. Server virtualization has been deployed in most enterprises and has delivered great benefits, including environmental and footprint savings, more efficient server utilization, and…

    Since the advent of Web 2.0, social interaction is king. Now, almost every single mobile app works in the environment of its users exchanging ideas through content authoring, comments, likes and shares. Even the simplest and most “personal” of them, like personal planners, address books and to-do lists, enable users to put their data in the cloud, share them with others and access them using a myriad of devices and interfaces. The bottom line is that every one of them needs a back-end and an API to talk to. All projects are executed through tight cooperation between back-end…

What they give us is simplicity and a neat level of abstraction over the database access code which allows us to develop quicker, all for free. But we all know that if someone gives us something for free, there must be a catch. Well, nothing is free in this world. In this case we get tons of unnecessary overhead. Even…

Just to be clear then, my criteria for whether a book makes it into my top 100 is primarily based on the practical, real effect it has on you awakening from the dreary, matrix-like slumber induced…

    Alex Espenson
    27 Feb 2015 | 11:27 am
    Without a doubt, when looking to technology, one can see it has changed the way we do business. Even thinking back 20 years, you can see that businesses have changed, for the better. While true, many entrepreneurs don’t take advantage of this or understand why technology is so crucial to helping one achieve higher profits and find more clients. With this in mind, it’s wise to consider technology’s role in supply chains, and here are five things to think about with regards to this important subject.

  • Startup Fundraising: The Right Mindset

    David Ehrenberg
    23 Feb 2015 | 10:33 am
    You know the steps to startup fundraising: Target potential investors Get warm introductions Set up tons of meetings Get serious with a handful of prospects Make your pitch Negotiate your terms Sign term sheets Voila, you’re funded! While this seems straightforward, in reality the process is much more fraught. In the best case, getting funded can take months, and in the worst, you might end your quest without a single signed term sheet. Oh, and have I mentioned that it’s a full-time job? Physical endurance is one thing, but how do you prepare yourself for the mental and emotional toll?

    In a world that is becoming increasingly knowledge-based, products are becoming highly digitized. A recent study of IT professionals reported that over 30% of their workplace environment is virtualized. We’ve even created an acronym for these kinds of services: software as a service (SAAS). Usually, a company provides subscription based access to subscribers allowing these subscribers to use software in the cloud. The software itself is hosted by a third party, SAAS service provider, which is responsible for maintaining software or hardware associated with the application. Overall, there…

    When I was a kid, I thought by 2015 we would be flying around in cars like The Jetsons.  It appears we aren’t there just yet, despite my wish for us to be flying around by now!  However, we have come a long way in powering vehicles. We have all seen many new hybrids and electric vehicle alternatives come out from a variety of manufactures and certainly seen their acceptance grow, especially as we saw gas prices increase over the last five years. This is coupled with the growing desire of the general public to be more “green.”  But, is the future of automotive electric or hydrogen?

  • Nature and Nurture: A Validation of Idea Screening

    Paul Crowe
    19 Nov 2014 | 11:15 am
    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…

    3 Feb 2015 | 5:53 pm
    Apple Pay is a revolutionary payment system. I have used it a couple of times since it has launched and just love the way it has been implemented. It works just as it was shown in the keynote. You basically bring your iPhone close to the payment terminal which is waiting for payment and your cards stored in the passbook will automagically appear on your screen. If you have your finger already on the Touch ID, it would just go ahead and authorize the payment with your default card. The little chime and a subtle vibration in addition to the short animation on the screen let you know that the…

  • 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…

    Searching for medical information on Google is a uniquely terrifying experience. You never know how reliable anything you find is, but along the way you manage to convince yourself you have everything from dengue fever to diphtheria. As a self-diagnosis tool the internet ranks somewhere between a ouija board and asking grandma. Google has apparently decided to change that—or at least, take one major step in the right direction. That’s the idea behind a new use of the knowledge graph which is already appearing in search results. Doctor-Approved Knowledge Panel Under the new…

    Let’s say you’re doing everything with your blog that you’re supposed to do. You continuously produce new content—not just once a month or once a week, but nearly every day. You focus on creating posts that are truly valuable to your readers, that solve problems or offer resources. Now: how do you get people to read them? Readership matters. Your blog is more than just an SEO gimmick, to boost your ranking by keeping your site looking fresh. It should be a go-to part of your site where clients and non-clients alike find the information they need, and get to know your…
  • AdWords’ New Strategy: Call Me Maybe?

    Andre Sólo
    24 Feb 2015 | 9:08 am
    Would you be willing to pay for an online ad that doesn’t take customers to your website? For many businesses the answer is apparently “yes,” at least if that ad puts them in touch with you by phone instead. That’s the idea behind the newest type of Google AdWords ad, the “call-only” ad. Call-only ads appear in mobile search results. They look like normal ads, but tapping on them doesn’t take the user to your website. Instead it shows your number and prompts them to tap to call you. In other words, it funnels toward phone instead of web.

    What if you could order food from any restaurant you like, on your computer, simply by searching for it online? That’s the idea with a new feature Bing just rolled out. The feature allows instant online ordering from numerous restaurants—without even going to a restaurant’s website. Instead, all you do is search for the restaurant on Bing. In addition to the usual search results, you’ll likely see a sidebar that has business info such as location and contact info. And now, for countless eateries, that sidebar will include an “Order Online” button. Why…
  • How to Make Your Site Load Faster (And Get More Business)

    Andre Sólo
    18 Feb 2015 | 1:30 am
    We’ve talked before about how important site speed is. A website that loads slowly gets downgraded by Google’s search algorithm, meaning you drop behind competitors in the rankings. And a slow site speed can also be bad on the human front: if your page takes a few seconds to display, users may take that opportunity to click over to another open tab, check their phone, or get up to refresh their coffee. There’s no guarantee they’ll ever come back to looking at your site. As it turns out, page speed now matters on a third front: the effectiveness of pay per click ads.

  • MORGAN STANLEY: There is no way lots of people start paying for Tinder (IACI)

    Myles Udland
    28 Feb 2015 | 3:22 pm
    Morgan Stanley isn't crazy about Tinder, the dating app that allows users to approve potential mates by swiping right or reject them by swiping left. And a big reason why is that the app's user base is young people, and young people don't like paying for dating apps. "First, given the young age of the target demo and frequent unwillingness to pay monthly recurring fees for social services, we believe Tinder will not have much success monetizing with a high-cost recurring monthly subscription offering," Morgan Stanley wrote in a note to clients on Wednesday. The firm added: The challenge with…

  • THE SMALL-BUSINESS LENDING OPPORTUNITY: Payments-tech companies are moving into lending to help businesses grow

    28 Feb 2015 | 12:15 pm
    A handful of payments companies including Square and PayPal are moving beyond their core market in payments to take advantage of an opportunity to help small businesses grow. Following the 2008 financial crisis, banks severely restricted access to capital, disproportionately affecting fledgling and medium-sized businesses. Annual loan originations to businesses with $1 million or less in revenue fell dramatically between 2007 and 2013.  For payments companies like Square and PayPal this created an opportunity. They are now offering loans and advances to their small-business clients…

    One of the biggest reasons Chatroulette became so popular back in 2009 was that it offered a window into the lives of strangers around the world. There's something exciting about seeing the world through another's eyes, and while Chatroulette has since devolved into a landscape littered with creepy guys doing creepy things, a photo-sharing app called Tworlds is trying to recapture some of that same magic by adding some structure to the idea of anonymous, random connection. The concept of Tworlds is pretty simple. First you choose from a list of hashtags, or "moments," like #work or #happy…

Just to put the sheer volume of data into perspective, for just one year that’s: 52…

    Late in January the Malaysian Airlines website was ‘supposedly’ hacked by Lizard Squad. You  might remember Lizard Squad as the guys who ‘hacked’ the XBox and Play Station network over the Christmas holidays, and I’m using a lot of ‘quotes’ here because Lizard Squad didn’t really ‘hack’ XBox One or Playstation, they merely DDOS-ed the services. What is DDOS-ed I hear you say? A DDOS attack is one where you flood a server with so much web traffic, that the server is no longer able to serve content to legitimate customers. Imagine if…

For those of you who aren’t keeping tabs of security issues–Poodle was a big vulnerability discovered in the 2nd half of 2014, that affected the SSLv3 protocol. The only fix for Poodle was to completely stop using SSLv3 altogether, not a bad idea, since the protocol itself is nearly 18 years old. In other…

In time, post-GTX 960’s launch, slowly information came out via other review sources that there is indeed an issue with the last 0.5GB VRAM. The stuttering phenomenon was explained eventually, but it didn’t really sink in with people as Nvidia took many months to correct the technical information that was passed through the reviewers, including the block diagram that reviewers usually get with their reviewer’s guide.

    There are certain occasions when you need the exact coordinates for a specific location, but most map applications don’t show that kind of data front and center because it’s not something that is needed very often. I’ve learned that getting the GPS coordinates can be very handy if your GPS device can’t find a specific address. If you’re like me and haven’t updated your Garmin or TomTom in years, then a lot of newer areas simply won’t show up when you search for them.

    26 Feb 2015 | 10:44 pm
    Have you recently downloaded a UIF file and now want to mount it so that you can view the contents? A UIF file is actually a MagicISO CD/DVD image file. The file can contain documents, photos, videos, etc. In order to view the contents, you have to first mount the UIF image file. There are many formats for creating images files of CD/DVDs, but UIF is used because it provides better encryption and also has better compression. The most common image format is ISO. Instead of trying to mount a UIF directly, the best option is to convert the UIF image to an ISO image and then mount the ISO image.

    John Morris
    10 Feb 2015 | 6:47 am
    Building a profitable web application is often the fastest way to notoriety as a developer (just ask Mark Zuckerberg or Sergey Brin). It’s also often the quickest way to have massive impact on the world and improve thousands or even millions of people’s lives. And, of course, if you hit it big (and usually even if you don’t)… the pay isn’t too shabby, either. But, how can you ensure the web application you want to develop will be a success? Having worked at a successful tech start-up for the last five years, I want to share a few of my insights: 1. Build…
  • 7 Steps to Get New Web Design Clients on Autopilot

    John Morris
    9 Jan 2015 | 7:46 pm
    When I first got into the online business/internet marketing space (way back in 2004) one of the ideas I saw thrown around a lot was this notion of getting business on “autopilot”. I always thought it was a little silly. It sounded like straight up hype to me. I mean how is it possible to get traffic, leads and sales on “autopilot”… the same numbers week after week without a lot of input on your part? Didn’t seem possible. And, for a lot of years I simply wrote it off as hype and didn’t think much more about it. Then, I started getting serious about…

    When I first entered the web design world, I felt like a fish out of water. For a long time, I felt like I really didn’t belong. Admittedly, my background is probably a bit atypical. I wasn’t born a “geek”. I grew up in a military and sports-oriented family. My first job ever was working construction for my dad. I was a star football player in high school. And, I had a fairly extensive background in sales my first few years in the workforce. I certainly wasn’t in the Mark Zuckerberg mold of learning to code from age 7. I was 23 before I even know what web design…

According to the report, speeds of up to one terabit (1 Tbit, or ~1000 Gbit) per second were achievable through the use of the very high-frequency spectrum. Of course, as with any other technology, there are caveats to the dream of transferring data at such a speed.

    Without a doubt, a freshly installed Linux system is less susceptible to malware, spyware and hacking than a freshly installed Windows system. However, most Linux systems are configured with some default settings that are inherently insecure. Some Linux distros are designed to be installed with very secure defaults, but this results in systems that have a significant difficulty for new users, especially those who are not computer security professionals.Ubuntu is arguably the most popular Linux distro today, and this is due to a large number of factors, one of which is its friendliness to new…

Recent postings on social media of the destruction of 3,000 year-old Assyrian sculptures by ISIS highlights a new threat to cultural heritage in times of conflict.

  • Google, mobile and the next billion

    28 Feb 2015 | 3:45 pm
    The change in Google's narrative over the past few months has been very interesting to watch. The recent "Peak Google" proclamations remind me of Facebook's post-IPO narrative in 2012. Conventional wisdom back then was that Facebook's decline was imminent as mobile was not a meaningful part of their revenue. Of course, Facebook's app install ads and other mobile initiatives disproved that narrative in short order. Some observers even make it seem as though Google's growth has seen a major slowdown in 2014. Interestingly, both Google's revenue and operating profit growth accelerated in 2014.

    Late on Friday, the White House released a draft proposal for the Consumer Privacy Bill of Rights Act of 2015. It is supposed to grant greater privacy rights to individuals, and sets out a framework in which codes of conduct can be constructed. The bill comes in response to growing concerns about the amount of data companies store about their customers and users, particularly online. Government surveillance has brought privacy into the public eye, and this is the government's attempt to be seen to be righting wrongs. Microsoft's backing of the bill is not to say that the company is in full…

    Mark Wilson

    Facebook found itself under fire last year for imposing a real name policy. Drag artists, the LGBT community, musicians and other groups were among those who felt they should be able to use a name other than the one that appears on their birth certificate. The social network ultimately backed down, but the whole debacle left something of a bad taste in the mouth. People are able to use "the authentic name they use in real life" to identify themselves on the site, and Facebook has opened up gender options further. There's no need to feel limited by the male or female labels, or even make a…

Although China gave the green-light for the sale of 5 million Xbox units, actual sales have been way, way below that. Launch numbers (including pre-orders) were just 100,000 units, and the company responsible for Xbox One sales in China has…

Then came the version 34.0 which apparently arrived very fast. But this hadn’t fixed the problem either.Finally I decided to ‘Google’.Then found out that it was rather a simple fix.. Which didn’t require a RESTART! The happiness on a Firefox user’s face…

    If you don’t already know. NuForce, the specialist audio equipment maker, was acquired by Silicon Valley-based projector maker, Optoma to complement the firm’s projector portfolio.

As it turns out, this getup, or at least the jacket (made by Osklen), was not the handiwork of the wardrobe department – it was Edward’s own personal jacket which director Alejandro Innaritu took fancy and requested it to be worn for the film and from then on, they started referring it as the Shiner Jacket.

    I am sure you have heard of puncture-free bicycle tires. Those tires, while offering a worry-free ride, may or may not be as comfy and could even add resistance to your riding. It shouldn’t matter if you are a casual rider or don’t ride as far out, but to competitive cyclists and those who travel long distances, tire resistance can be quite a burden. This is where the next-generation puncture-free bicycle tires, dubbed Aither 1.1, from South Korea-based Tannus Tire aims to resolve. Besides offering “enhanced elasticity” over its predecessor, it now boasts better grip performance and…

    24 Feb 2015 | 1:21 pm
    There are some serious problems with measuring IO performance of all flash arrays with what we use on disk storage systems. Mostly, these are due to the inherent differences between current flash- and disk-based storage. NAND garbage collection First off, garbage collection is required by any SSD or NAND storage to be able to write data. Garbage collection coalesces free space by moving non-modified data to new pages/blocks and freeing up the space held by old, no-longer current data. The problem is NAND garbage collection takes place only after a suitable amount of write activity and…

The idea behind the image is that you are a new user who is just coming out of the egg in the world of Twitter, tweets and the Twitter Bird.

  • Confessions of a Technology Profiler

    Joe Kinsella
    8 Feb 2015 | 2:52 pm
    After years of being in the closet, I'm coming clean: I'm a technology profiler. In my never ending search for good engineers, I instinctively form opinions of the quality of someone's software talent based on nothing more than what I see in their profile. It's like a facial tic I can't get rid of. For example, you say: "I write ASP.NET code to SQL Server in a big company", and I think: "No freaking way can you build complex software in a fast moving startup." Or you say: "I'm writing the multi-threaded backend of a cloud-based distributed system in a startup using Haskell", and I think:…
  • 5 Requirements Not Found In My Job Descriptions

    Joe Kinsella
    27 Jan 2015 | 5:43 am
    I get asked on a regular basis what I’m looking for in engineers. I think most people are expecting the answers found in a typical job description - e.g. CS degree or equivalent, 4+ years commercial software experience, work experience with modern language (i.e. Python, Ruby, Scala), multi-threaded programming, and so on. But there is a fundamental truth of hiring that often gets lost in traditional job descriptions: great engineers are not defined by their degree, number of years experience, or the technologies they work with - but by their core abilities / traits. Here are the 5 abilities…
  • 10 Steps To Finding a Job at a Boston Startup

    Joe Kinsella

    It’s no secret some of the best job opportunities in the Boston area are in technology startups. Last year venture capitalists invested almost $5 billion in local companies, making the tech sector one of the fastest growing segments of our local economy. In addition to the professional freedom and challenges that comes with joining a startup, the re-opened IPO market and a steady flow of M&A hold out the possibility of financial success should you pick a winner. But choosing the right startup can be challenging for professionals already in the community, and even more so for those…

    Last year while reading Walter Isaacson's The Innovators, I was surprised to learn about The Mother of All Demos, a presentation by computing pioneer Douglas Engelbart in 1968. A YouTube video of the presentation is provided below. In the video you can see the heritage of many of the modern technologies and services upon which our industry is built (e.g. personal computer, mouse, document collaboration, peer to peer networking, and more).

    I’ve made a few visits to Andreessen Horowitz over the last two years, and each time paid little attention to the books on the wall to wall bookshelves in the lobby. Arriving a little early for an informal coffee meeting last November, I spent a few minutes reviewing the books, which ranged from histories (e.g. Ambrose’s D Day) to tech non-fiction (e.g. Innovator’s Dilemma) to self-help / how-tos (e.g. Learning Rails). When the partner I was meeting came out, I couldn’t help but ask: “Where do all the books come from? Partners bring them in?” “Oh no,” he said. “Those all…

But here’s my experience: 1. I created an account and tried to add my bank account and credit card to deposit money into the system (as Bitcoin). I had to give a lot of personal information. And I had to take a photo of my drivers license. And then I had to take a selfie.

There is an energy there as people begin to rebuild. A willingness to experiment. A stubbornness to succeed. Tech startups can play a pivotal role in rebuilding, but infrastructure is needed. We are seeing a dramatic increase in the number of Detroit based startups looking…

    Rahul Banker
    12 Feb 2015 | 1:52 am
    Slots have been around since the 19th century, though the earlier versions were much more primitive compared to the games you can play today. Originating in New York, the game was invented when Sittman and Pitt created a type of gambling drum that consisted of a lever and 50 card faces. The players would pay one nickel to place their bets and when the drum stopped spinning, the outcome was based on poker hands. Winners would receive a payout in the form of drinks, merchandise and food. No money was awarded to players and so although the game gained some fans, it didn’t explode on to the…

  • Ramblings of an Entrepreneur

    Renee Schmidt
    8 Jan 2015 | 12:13 pm
    The life of an entrepreneur is not a particularly easy one. Doors open one day and for weeks or months new ones can remain shut. When doors are shut and no amount of knocking will open them, there’s nothing to lean on but certainty. Sometimes that certainty stems from a distant reminder of when a door unexpectedly flung open in the past. Other times that certainty borders on mania, stemming from nothing more than an inexplicable knowing from within. People sometimes remark to me of their admiration of how far I’ve come as an entrepreneur (how far is actually debatable, but that’s a…

And so I am. In an increasingly…

  • Samsung Smart TV sparks privacy fears over recording living room conversations

    9 Feb 2015 | 3:03 pm
    The voice controls behind Samsung’s Smart TVs have raised privacy fears, after the company’s relevant privacy policy notes that the television may record what people say in their own homes and pass that information to a third party. Whilst Samsung does not name the company or companies that to which it send the audio recordings, Nuance is one likely contender as it provides voice-recognition and analysis to a number of technology companies, including possibly Apple’s Siri.

    The 2015 edition of the Mobile World Congress show that is about to kick off in Barcelona, Spain will likely be one of the best in recent years when it comes to new hardware announcements, as at least two hot mobile devices will be unveiled during the show — the HTC One M9 and Samsung Galaxy S6 each have their own special events on Sunday.

If I walk out that door, it's because I need food or because I have a previous obligation; work or social. The reason I'm not willingly going outdoors isn't that I'm lazy (although that isn't helping), it's because the temperature has been hovering around freezing for nearly two months straight.
