  • Why I Like Slack

    25 May 2015 | 11:18 am
    A few days ago, Dave Winer asked the question to those who follow him on Twitter and Facebook, “Why do people like Slack?” Because Dave rarely asks questions for which I have an answer (I know nothing about “nodes”), I thought I’d jump on this one, as Hammock Inc. has been using Slack since last year. So I started to answer with a comment on Facebook, but within a sentence I knew this would grow into a post. First, some context Dave is one of the 12 people who read this blog.  He knows (except when I’m talking about some nuanced rivalry in…

    Ask Eric who has way too many ideas and he may sigh and mention my name. That is where I thrive. I have had more ideas in my life than time to even consider how to expound on them, let alone make half of them into something. I am not detail oriented and I love to have no limits when I think. The tough part is when I have to come back to reality and look at what resources I have at my disposal and find myself being able to lock in. The infographic below has some great tips for not only starting to generate ideas, but make them flourish. And I endorse them all. To organize your thoughts is not…

  • Lamborghini is officially developing an SUV

    C.C. Weiss
    28 May 2015 | 3:22 pm
    Back at the 2012 Beijing Motor Show, Lamborghini gave the world a look at what a modern Raging Bull-badged sport utility vehicle might look like. Not a bad-ass, ultra-rugged Rambo Lambo redux, but a car-like crossover for the new, eco-conscious millennium. They called it Urus. In the three years since, there's been plenty of "will they, won't they" in the auto media, and each passing month has seemingly increased the chances that they would not. Well, Lamborghini has now put any doubt to bed, announcing this week that it is moving ahead with production of a luxury SUV... Continue Reading…

    New submitter hamsterz1 writes: U.S. Officials say that the military mistakenly sent live anthrax to laboratories in nine states and an air base in South Korea, after apparently failing to properly inactivate the bacteria. Four lab workers in the United States and up to 22 overseas have been given precautionary medical treatment. The CDC is investigating the incident and Pentagon spokesman Colonel Steve Warren says, "Out of an abundance of caution, [the Defence Department] has stopped the shipment of this material from its labs pending completion of the investigation."Read more of this story…
  • Why Detecting Drones Is a Tough Gig

    28 May 2015 | 3:32 pm
    An anonymous reader writes with a link to some interesting commentary at Help Net Security from Drone Lab CEO Zain Naboulsi about a security issue of a (so far) unusual kind: detecting drones whose masters are bent on malice. That's relevant after the recent drone flight close enough to the White House to spook the Secret Service, and that wasn't the first -- even if no malice was involved. Drones at their most dangerous in that context are small, quiet, and flying through busy, populated spaces, which makes even detecting them tough, never mind defeating them.

    Patrick O'Neill writes: Ross Ulbricht has never been tried for murder but tomorrow, when the convicted Silk Road creator is sentenced to prison, murder will be on the mind of the judge. Despite never filing murder for hire charges, New York federal prosecutors have repeatedly pushed for harsh sentencing because of, they told the judge, Ulbricht solicited multiple murders. The judge herself recently referred to Ulbricht's "commission of murders-for-hire" in a letter about the sentencing, painting an even grimmer picture of Ulbricht's sentencing prospects.Read more of this story at Slashdot.

    This week’s promotion of Jony Ive to Chief Design Officer at Apple was a useful reminder of the degree to which a portion of the world will go nuts over any announcement relating to Apple and of the power of at least some of the individual personalities at major tech firms. So much ink would never have been spilled over a change in job title at any other company, a testament to both the interest in Apple as a firm but also to the significance of Jony Ive to Apple’s success. But that impact is broader than just Jony Ive and broader than Apple too. It’s a principle that…

This is not a high price for total customization and the knowledge that a house is really yours. It is not uncommon to pay…

    25 May 2015 | 5:12 pm
    Solar panels are special devices that capture sunlight and convert it into usable electricity. Cells from these panels are arranged on a large area for maximum efficiency. As the sun shines on the surface, the lenses capture sunlight and channel for energy. Reduce energy costs Although you will have the initial burden of installing solar panels, once you have completed the renovation of most of their expenses you will be terminated. From this point, you will receive free energy due to the sun shining on the surface. This may be an exceptional economy, if you live in an area with abundant…

  • 8 WTF moments from FIFA's bizarro opening ceremony

    28 May 2015 | 11:16 am
    As the world around it burned, FIFA ... held a dance recital? FIFA, world soccer's governing body, opened its annual congress with a ceremony on Thursday night in Zurich, Switzerland. The event was almost bizarre enough to make the Sochi Olympics' psychedelic opening ceremony seem bland It was especially bizarre considering that FIFA is currently the subject of a major international scandal, being shaken to its very core and has a lower popularity rating among sports fans than waking up to find you're out of toilet paper See also: Can Sepp Blatter survive the scandal?

  • Throwback Thursday: Eat'n Park Still Suing Over Smiley Face Cookies After All This Time

    Timothy Geigner
    28 May 2015 | 3:38 pm
    The more things change, the more they stay the same, as the saying goes. Over half a decade ago, Techdirt covered a bakery out of Pennsylvania that used trademark laws to keep another bakery from putting smiley-faces on its cookies. Frankly, it's one of those stories we cover where the immediate question of how trademarks could be twisted into this nonsense is immediately followed by the assumption that the whole thing will soon go away, never to be repeated again. Not so much in this case, as it turns out. Eat'n Park recently once again brought a federal trademark suit against another…
  • Book Publishers Whine To USTR That It's Just Not Fair That Canada Recognizes Fair Dealing For Educational Purposes

    Mike Masnick
    28 May 2015 | 2:39 pm
    A few years ago, Canada's Supreme Court made it clear that "fair dealing" should be applied broadly, especially in educational settings. Fair dealing, of course, is similar to fair use -- and, in the US, in theory, educational uses are also supposed to qualify for fair use. As Section 107 of the US Copyright Act states: The fair use of a copyrighted work, including such use by reproduction in copies or phonorecords or by any other means specified by that section, for purposes such as criticism, comment, news reporting, teaching (including multiple copies for classroom use), scholarship, or…

    If you're amongst that odd combination of gaming enthusiast and strident supporter of the First Amendment, Rockstar is likely one of your hero-companies. The maker of the Grand Theft Auto series has long relied on free speech principles both for the outlandish (and entertaining) content in its games, but also as a defense against every last crazy sorta-famous person out there that thinks the company has appropriated their likeness in what amounts to at worst parody and more likely an amalgam composite of pop culture characters. And, as it is with any kind of hero, it truly hurts when they…

    As Rightscorp continues to explore its legally-dubious efforts to shake down broadband users for cash, the company is finding itself with its hands full across multiple, costly legal fronts. Earlier this month, the company was beaten back in court by a tiny ISP by the name of Birch Communications, after the courts rejected the use of DMCA subpoenas for ISP subscriber data. Rightscorp's also doing battle with Cox Communications, trying to drum up user identities while claiming the DMCA gives it the authority to threaten users with account termination. Despite all the noise Rightscorp makes in…

  • XTERRA Malibu Creek 22k Trail Race 2015 Report

    20 May 2015 | 10:37 pm
    After my crash and burn at the Leona Divide 50/50 race I thought I’d take some time to carefully pick the next race. It was between the Born To Run 50k (30 miler) and the XTERRA Malibu Creek 22k which I had run the year before. The BTR race looked like fun but I finally decided to focus on a course I’ve already run and to shoot for a PR on the XTERRA race. You can see some of my training for the race last year here and this is my race report for XTERRA Malibu Creek 2014. Now that I’ve started using to post workouts and track the activity of others I’m able…
  • Leona Divide 50k 2015 Race Report – DNF

    19 Apr 2015 | 8:03 pm
    I ran the Leona Divide 50k race yesterday with about 500 other trail running fanatics. Unfortunately my race ended around mile 21 when I chose to drop. It was a tough race and thoughts and emotions are still swirling but wanted to put things down in writing although I’m sure my thoughts and judgments will change over the next few days and weeks. The Leona Divide 50k was part of long term plan to attempt and finish my first ultra this year. In December I started training for my first attempt, the Sean O’Brien 50k but then I figured I should attempt a trail marathon so I switched…
  • 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…

    Between the now hard to dispute overheating woes of Qualcomm’s newest high-end Snapdragon family member, and the respectable power developed by the second best chip cooked up in San Diego, smartphone manufacturers seem faced with tough decisions for the rest of the year. Some will choose to risk it, and go the S810 path, following HTC’s suit, while others may take LG as a cautious example and seek elsewhere for flagship… Continue reading Moto’s next-gen Verizon flagship phones could use Snapdragon 808 and 810 Related posts: Android 5.0 Lollipop rolls out to second-gen Verizon Moto…

  • 5 Reasons Jony Ive's Step Back Is Apple's Step Forward

    Chris Maxcer
    28 May 2015 | 12:23 pm
    There seem to be two major reactions to the "promotion" of Apple's Jonathan Ive to the newly created position of chief design officer: first, that he deserves the recognition and reward; and second, that this is the beginning of the end for Jony Ive's tenure at Apple. Because Apple released the news in the UK... on Monday, which was the Memorial Day holiday in the United States... it appeared there was an effort to mitigate any element of scary surprise that could spark a drop in stock. Why the carefully scripted plan of action?
  • No Wrongdoing at NCIS, Says Defense Watchdog

    28 May 2015 | 10:26 am
    The U.S. Department of Defense's Inspector General has rejected allegations that the Naval Criminal Investigative Service engaged in questionable domestic intelligence activity. The finding concluded a DoD IG probe spurred by allegations that NCIS was making available to military intelligence agencies its Law Enforcement Information Exchange, a massive database of 506.3 million law enforcement records ranging from criminal histories and arrest reports to field information cards filled out by cops on the beat, even when no crime had occurred.

    Jack M. Germain
    27 May 2015 | 5:19 pm
    Internet security researchers at Eset on Tuesday published a security research paper on Linux/Moose, a major threat to social networks that turns routers into conduits for grabbing users' log-in credentials, employing them for network fraud and to further spread malware to client devices that connect through them to the Internet. The paper, "Dissecting Linux/Moose," details a months-long investigation into a carefully concealed flow of traffic involving the malware and recommends how to avoid prolonged exposure to it.
  • Splatoon: Nintendo Seeks Bloodless Coup in Online Shooter Genre

    Quinten Plummer
    27 May 2015 | 3:18 pm
    With its bloodless battles of attrition between squads of human-squid chimeras, twitch-shooter Splatoon oozes classic Nintendo charm that has enamored many early reviewers. Splatoon is the first new intellectual property Nintendo has released in years. It takes a crack at the competitive shooter genre, opting to go the route of a third-person, rather than first-person perspective. Instead of the visceral shock of bullet wounds, blood, and the wails of the wounded, Splatoon supplies brightly colored ink to wield in chaotic matches.

  • The Way Forward for Chris Roberts, One World Labs

    Bill Brenner
    18 May 2015 | 4:42 am
    The plight of One World Labs Founder Chris Roberts has been picked to death on social media this past week. There’s all the trouble he’s in with the FBI for his airplane-hacking claims. There’s the hit to his company, which had to let a lot of good security talent go last week. Some shake their heads in disbelief because he apparently spoke to the FBI about his activities without a lawyer present. Others saw this saga as an example of hackers shooting off their mouths without the scruples to back it up. Me? I’m looking at this and seeing a way forward for Chris…
  • “Equal Respect” at ‪#‎RSAC

    Bill Brenner
    21 Apr 2015 | 9:06 am
    Some folks in the security industry see me as a member of the “Equal Respect” movement against so-called booth babes at conferences. Not exactly. I certainly respect the opinion of people attached to the cause, and good for them, fighting for what they believe in. But for me, this has never been about equal respect among the genders. It’s never been about whether women who work as booth babes are being exploited sexually. For me, it’s been about holding vendors’ feet to the fire and making them work harder to build an exhibit off the strength of the products. To…
  • In the end, @Sidragon1’s Tweet was the problem

    Bill Brenner
    21 Apr 2015 | 6:24 am
    At RSA Conference 2015 here in San Francisco, there’s a lot of discussion about weaknesses to the electrical and wifi systems aboard airplanes. The discussion often turns to the case of hacker Chris Roberts (@Sidragon1 on Twitter). There’s been a lot of strong reaction to news of Roberts being pulled from a plane for jokingly tweeting that he might mess around with the plane’s electronic systems. There’s a lot of overreaction to this story. The TSA and feds certainly overreacted. But those who hold Roberts up as a victim of government oppression are overreacting, too.

    As an organisation, FIFA may currently be revealing itself to be just about the most corrupt, and least transparent on the planet – and one that is run by a bunch of old boys. But at least the video game is forward thinking with developer EA Sports announcing that 12 international women’s football teams will feature on its next incarnation, FIFA 16 (but no female club teams – yet). Since the sports game was first released in1993 only men’s teams have featured. However, that’s all set to change. “To be one of the first female players included is something…

  • PC Market To Stall Ahead Of Windows 10

    28 May 2015 | 2:05 pm
    According to industry analysts using a custom "glocal" research model, it has been determined that PC shipments will decline 6.2% ahead of the launch of Windows 10. Our very own in-house analyst verified these findings. According to the latest figures from IDC's Quarterly PC Tracker, PC shipments are expected to decline 6.2 percent in 2015, due in part to a slower-than-expected consumer transition to Microsoft's new OS, which is set to launch later this year. IDC says the free Windows 10 upgrade will reduce the need for consumers to rush out to buy a new computer. Comments

  • Apple In Talks To Bring Transit Directions In Maps

    26 May 2015 | 6:59 am
    Apple has been in talks about their new update for the iOS 9. The updates of this version apparently plans to bring buit-in transit directions to its native Maps applications. When Apple replaced Google Maps, the Transit directions were completely left out. The Transit were left out back in 2012 as Apple had its own offering as the default navigation application in the iOS 6. Last year, there were rumors that Apple made a late-stage decision to take transit navigation out of iOS 8. The current and new report stated that now it intends to launch it with this year’s update of its mobile OS.

  • Throwback Thursday: Eat'n Park Still Suing Over Smiley Face Cookies After All This Time

    Timothy Geigner
    28 May 2015 | 3:38 pm
    The more things change, the more they stay the same, as the saying goes. Over half a decade ago, Techdirt covered a bakery out of Pennsylvania that used trademark laws to keep another bakery from putting smiley-faces on its cookies. Frankly, it's one of those stories we cover where the immediate question of how trademarks could be twisted into this nonsense is immediately followed by the assumption that the whole thing will soon go away, never to be repeated again. Not so much in this case, as it turns out. Eat'n Park recently once again brought a federal trademark suit against another…
  • Book Publishers Whine To USTR That It's Just Not Fair That Canada Recognizes Fair Dealing For Educational Purposes

    Mike Masnick
    28 May 2015 | 2:39 pm
    A few years ago, Canada's Supreme Court made it clear that "fair dealing" should be applied broadly, especially in educational settings. Fair dealing, of course, is similar to fair use -- and, in the US, in theory, educational uses are also supposed to qualify for fair use. As Section 107 of the US Copyright Act states: The fair use of a copyrighted work, including such use by reproduction in copies or phonorecords or by any other means specified by that section, for purposes such as criticism, comment, news reporting, teaching (including multiple copies for classroom use), scholarship, or…

    If you're amongst that odd combination of gaming enthusiast and strident supporter of the First Amendment, Rockstar is likely one of your hero-companies. The maker of the Grand Theft Auto series has long relied on free speech principles both for the outlandish (and entertaining) content in its games, but also as a defense against every last crazy sorta-famous person out there that thinks the company has appropriated their likeness in what amounts to at worst parody and more likely an amalgam composite of pop culture characters. And, as it is with any kind of hero, it truly hurts when they…

    Earlier this year, we wrote about the psychological games that surveillance state defenders play -- both on themselves and the public -- to continually ratchet up programs that show no evidence of working. In it, we pointed to a great post by the ACLU's Kade Crockford, highlighting a rare case where an FBI official was forthright about what's really going on: If you’re submitting budget proposals for a law enforcement agency, for an intelligence agency, you’re not going to submit the proposal that ‘We won the war on terror and everything’s great,’ cuz the first thing that’s gonna…

    As Rightscorp continues to explore its legally-dubious efforts to shake down broadband users for cash, the company is finding itself with its hands full across multiple, costly legal fronts. Earlier this month, the company was beaten back in court by a tiny ISP by the name of Birch Communications, after the courts rejected the use of DMCA subpoenas for ISP subscriber data. Rightscorp's also doing battle with Cox Communications, trying to drum up user identities while claiming the DMCA gives it the authority to threaten users with account termination. Despite all the noise Rightscorp makes in…

    Not even a week into this new lifestyle choice and I’m loving it. In case you missed my previous post on the topic, I finally decided to ditch cable TV and save close to $1500 a year in the process. It looks like a lot of people are doing this now more than ever. I suspect HBO Now was a tipping point for a lot of people. I know it’s one of the things that got me and Kristin talking about it. Pain Points aka why can’t I pause live TV anymore… Now there are some slight pain points to cutting the cord. The one most noticeable to me has been the lack of DVR capabilities on…

Our primary DVR/cable box in our main room died a horrible death of infinite reboots on Sunday, and I took it in to the local Time Warner store to swap it out for a new one on Monday. The new one had a different problem that made it unusable. Tuesday I went back to exchange that box. They told me I was in luck, that their brand new amazing box that lets you record 7 channels at once was available… but, then, the support person assisting me couldn’t get the system to actually let…

  • Where to Buy Used Books Online With Cheap/Free International Shipping

    There are thousands of book stores on the internet that will sell you used books for cheap. If their business is in the same country as yours, you can even avail free shipping, or at least, a reasonable shipping rate. Book lovers from the United States and the United Kingdom are typically at advantage here because a large of number of publishing houses and book stores operate from these countries.

It’s no surprise that a large number of mobile web users are not likely to come back to a site that they weren’t able to access easily. This further…

  • Google is trying to solve the smart home's biggest problem

    28 May 2015 | 4:01 pm
    At its developers conference this afternoon, Google announced two pieces of software for the smart home and the broader collection of connected devices around us, increasingly known as the internet of things. Those two pieces are Brillo, an operating system, and Weave, a common language for devices to talk to one another. And importantly, Weave doesn't have to run on Brillo - so appliance manufacturers can theoretically add it on to their existing products. I just can't get excited about an internet-connected blender.
  • Google unveils Now on Tap

    28 May 2015 | 11:45 am
    After Android M, Google also talked a lot about Google Now - which is getting a major upgrade called Now on Tap. In short, Now on Tap is context-aware, and knows what's going on in the application you're using right now. If someone sends you a WhatsApp message that says "Want to have dinner at Chez Fred tonight?", you can bring up a Google Now overlay without leaving WhatsApp that shows you a Google Now card with information pertaining to Chez Fred. Or, if you're listening to a song on Spotify, you can just say "OK Google, who's the lead singer", and Google Now will provide the answer. We're…
  • Google unveils Android M

    28 May 2015 | 11:03 am
    Google I/O is here, and the company's big keynote is still underway. The biggest announcement so far is - as expected - Android M, the next major Android release scheduled for Q3 of this year. Much like how the last few iOS releases played catch-up to major Android features, Android M is really catching up to a number of major, stand-out iOS features - and all of them are very welcome. The biggest new feature coming to Android M is App Permissions - and it's exactly what you're thinking. Instead of applications asking for all possible permissions during installation time, they will now only…
  • Finally, an objective book review: A God In Ruins

    28 May 2015 | 4:30 am
    A God In Ruins is a novel by the author Kate Atkinson, following on from a previous novel by the same author entitled Life After Life. The book is 24 cm high and 16.2 cm wide. Across the main surface appears a predominantly brown background, depicting wooden boards. Upon them lies or hangs a rabbit, that is possibly dead, but could also be alive. A great story about ethics in book journalism.
  • White House tells Supreme Court APIs are copyrightable

    27 May 2015 | 5:04 pm
    The Justice Department is weighing in on the hot-button intellectual property dispute between Google and Oracle, telling the Supreme Court that APIs are protected by copyright. The Obama administration's position means it is siding with Oracle and a federal appeals court that said application programming interfaces are subject to copyright protections. The high court in January asked for the government's views on the closely watched case. Words can't describe how stupid this is, so here's a picture of a bunny wearing a hat.

    The Microsoft Lumia 435 is an odd little phone. Immediately recognisable as a Lumia, given its bold colours and polycarbonate body, yet boasting sharper lines, a more boxy design and a Microsoft logo, this is a different breed of Windows Phone.

As a business-oriented device, this tablet comes with a minimalistic, black paint job and anodized finish, which feels very reminiscent of the iPad Air 2. That said, […]

    If you’re anything like me (and probably countless others out there), you have likely felt the frustration of wanting a new and cutting-edge cell phone but knowing that you could never own it. Why is this? Well, because the desired cell phone runs on iOS and all your current devices run on Android (or vice versa), and because it is just way too difficult or next to impossible to synch your information with your new phone. Sometimes, even when you upgrade your phone, which runs on the same operating system as the previous one, you’ll find that you lose a certain amount of information when…

    So, you’re looking for a new PC? It can be a daunting task shopping for a new one as the market is saturated with literally thousands of models, and, if you’re not an IT expert, you may not even know where to begin. The good news is that purchasing a new computer is now so much easier and you can do it online and from the comfort of your own home (no more battling the crowds at the mall and sullen shop assistants). If you enjoy convenience (don’t we all?) or if you are “technically-challenged”, many PCs now come with pre-installed Windows software, such as the powerful new Ainol…

    Rex Hammock
    26 May 2015 | 10:22 am
    I’ve re-run the following post several times. It’s about what the experts tell us we should do when a major disaster strikes ‘someplace else.’ I make it a point to say “someplace else,” as I know when disaster strikes “someplace near,” you’ll know what to do. My thoughts go out to those who are impacted by the Texas/Oklahoma floods. Over the years, I have written about many natural disasters and the human toll they’ve taken. I believe social media, writ large, make such events more personal to us all — a shared phenomena, even…

    A few days ago, Dave Winer asked the question to those who follow him on Twitter and Facebook, “Why do people like Slack?” Because Dave rarely asks questions for which I have an answer (I know nothing about “nodes”), I thought I’d jump on this one, as Hammock Inc. has been using Slack since last year. So I started to answer with a comment on Facebook, but within a sentence I knew this would grow into a post. First, some context Dave is one of the 12 people who read this blog.  He knows (except when I’m talking about some nuanced rivalry in…
  • PacMan Eats Up Amazon’s Home Page

    22 May 2015 | 11:47 am
    Earlier this year, I noted a new design of that supports “takeover” ads. These are not pop-over or pop-up ads that you can click an “x” to remove. These are ads that are actually a part of the background or are, in some graphical and often animated way, an actual element of the page. Today, I thought I saw Amazon come as close as I’ve seen it come to promoting a product using a takeover approach (that wasn’t a letter from Jeff Bezzos). However, upon looking at it more closely, I realized it was a standard size Amazon uses — a…

But I’ve read enough to know that anyone who has ever has faced adversity and challenge and ridicule will recognize something familiar in the story. These brothers were from Dayton, Ohio, and funded the venture themselves. And besides, everyone know that no one would ever fly. Why? Because all of the big thinkers of the day said so.

    In Nashville, a city that is in the midst of an unprecedented building boom, a prime piece of property has not participated in the boom. Instead, it became first, a giant hole and then, one of the most expensive lakes a person can imagine. However, Google Maps isn’t a person and it had no problem imagining it. Google Maps has spent the past several years codifying the creation of the giant lake on West End Avenue. A six year old post on a real estate blog tells the story up to that point. Since then, there has been another big deal announcement, some more digging, and a deal falling…

    It is recommended that you include Related Posts on your blog pages as they help decrease the bounce rate of your site and are good from the SEO perspective. That’s because when you publish a new article, the old content, that was previously hiding in the archives, shows up in the list of related posts and thus gets fresh exposure to both human visitors and search engines. Matt Cutts, in 2010 when Google search results were a collection of 10 blue links, recommended using related posts and the advice is still relevant today in the age on Penguins and Pandas.

ExactTrak manufactures secure USB sticks, embedding a SIM card and GPS for tracking them and remotely managing their contents.

  • Sorry, PC vendors: The free Windows 10 upgrade means users won't be buying new PCs

    28 May 2015 | 3:39 pm
    Microsoft’s decision to offer free upgrades to Windows 10 was terrific news—for users, but not the PC industry. IDC said Thursday that it expects PC sales to decline further in 2015, by 6.2 percent, versus an actual drop of 2.2 percent in 2014. In part, that’s because the analyst firm doesn’t see a need for users to invest in new PCs to run Windows 10. “[C]hanges like the free upgrade option for consumers and platform integration aren’t expected to drive a surge in new PC shipments,” IDC wrote. Unfortunately, the only segment that will move quickly on Windows 10 is the segment…

    9 May 2015 | 11:54 pm
    Rombertik is a new computer virus that can destroy your computer’s Master Boot Record (MBR) if it’s detected or quarantined. This self-destructing virus aims to track your internet browsing activities while stealing important login records such as bank accounts, emails and social media accounts. This unique virus once avoids initial detection installs itself in the appdata folder and clones itself in the startup folder. Once it completes these processes, it replaces itself with an unpacked executable which enables it to embed itself in to the system. Once deeply embedded, the virus runs…

    There is no doubt that AMD and NVIDIA will launch their ‘latest and greatest’ graphics cards in June 2015. While the exact schedule is lacking details, it is rumored that both companies will split their unveilings between Computex Taipei 2015 (June 2-5) and E3 2015 (June 16-18). AMD recently fired the first salvo, with a teaser trailer for its upcoming Fiji XT graphics card, high end model for the otherwise rebranded number of GPUs belonging to the ‘300’ series. Backside of AMD Fiji XT card shows very compact PCB layout. As you can see on a leaked image from TechPowerUp, this board…

    Despite being a leader in digital content sales, Sony often finds itself sabotaged by its own clandestine PSN policies. The Japanese console-maker has once again come under scrutiny for troublesome practices, and will be the subject of tonight’s episode of the BBC’s consumer advocacy show Watchdog.

While Solar Impulse RTW project is now hitting delays as the weather conditions are not allowing for the plane to travel from China to Hawaii, words come from Airbus that they will build a final assembly line for their Airbus E-Fan aircraft in Pau, France.

According to Digitimes, Colorful has leapfrogged over better known brands (in the west at least) such as MSI (TPE: 2377) and Asus (TPE:2357) to become the world’s second-largest vendor of graphics cards.

    6 May 2015 | 9:11 pm
    For years now my MacBook Pro has been my primary computer. Now my only desktop computer is my Mac OS X Server. Having a MacBook Pro doesn’t mean that I don’t have a ton of peripherals that I need to connect. The last thing I want to do when I leave or return from a trip is connect a bunch of cables. That’s where a Thunderbolt 2 dock comes in. Although I’ve used a Belkin one for years now, people are always asking for a lower priced alternative. Elgato has created one the fits the bill nicely. For a hundred dollars less than the competition you still get 2 Thunderbolt 2…
  • Why You Should Enable Dual Redundancy on Your Drobo

    Terry White
    5 May 2015 | 9:11 pm
    Like you, my data is very important to me. I have several backups and offsite cloud backups too. In my home office I use a Drobo 5D connected to my Mac OS X Server as well as a second Drobo 5N to backup the Drobo 5D. The whole reason to have a Drobo is so that if one of your hard drives fail your data will be protected and you can just keep working. You’ll probably replace the failed drive with a larger one since larger drives come out every year. The one thing we don’t really think about is what happens if two drives fail at the same time? Normally this means you’re screwed…
  • A Behind The Scenes Look: LIVE broadcast of my Piedmont Park sunset shoot

    It’s always fun to get out and shoot on my free time. Now with the Periscope App it’s easier than ever to invite people to watch live. This past weekend I did a live broadcast from my sunset shoot at Piedmont Park in Atlanta Georgia. I had over 100 people watching my short broadcast. With Periscope the broadcasts can be uploaded for replay for a 24 hour period. After that they are pretty much history. Sure Periscope allows you to save the video to your camera roll, but that video doesn’t include any of the comments or interactions (hearts) you received during your broadcast.

I always thought it was cool to be able to remote control several lights, appliances, etc. all from one control pad or timer module. I haven’t looked that the advancements that closely over the years, but when the Elgato Avea came across my review desk I was excited. The Avea Dynamic Mood Light is a 7W bluetooth controlled LED lightbulb. Unlike other products on the market this one doesn’t require a network connection or any…

    Google made a plethora of announcements at Google I/O on Thursday. These include a bunch of new things to help mobile app developers better measure, promote and monetize their apps. Let’s run through these. First off, Google announced that it has built partnerships with over 20 ad networks including InMobi and Millennial Media since launching iOS conversion tracking late last year. Data integration with all of these has led to what Google calls a comprehensive view of app value across networks. Soon, you’ll be able to “postback” conversions to referring networks in…

As with the existing app, photos are automatically backed up and synced. “And when we say a lifetime of memories, we really mean it,” says head of Google Photos Anil Sabharwal. “With Google Photos, you can now backup and store unlimited, high-quality photos and videos, for free.

  • Emilia Clarke: ‘Huge Amount Nudity’ Caused the Actress to Turn Down ’50 Shades of Grey’

    Pam Wright
    28 May 2015 | 11:56 am
    Emilia Clarke says nudity was the reason she turned down the opportunity to play Anastasia Steele in the Fifty Shades of Grey. It wasn’t just the nudity because she’s not opposed to taking it off as Daenerys Targaryen in HBO’s The Game of Thrones. Emilia Clarke told Marie Claire U.K. for its July cover that it wasn’t the nudity that bothered her, but the “huge amount of nudity” and the fear of becoming “pigeonholed” for being open to baring it all. “I really wanted to work with Sam Taylor-Johnson because she’s f–king amazing.

    With the annual Google I/O conference firmly underway, the announcements are flowing like water. One of those is that Inbox by Gmail is now open to everyone. The product was unveiled last fall as “the inbox that works for you”. It has been available on an invitation-only basis ever since. I had the good fortune of getting one fairly early, and I can’t say I was particularly fond of it. It didn’t take me long to switch back to Gmail. That said, a lot of people do seem to like it. Now, a lot more people are going to have a chance to see what they think. It’s also…

    Given our interest in consuming just about any content from the world of technology, Pocket has been one application that we cannot even think of spending a day without opening. We trash at least 20 articles a day into pocket to ensure that we catch up on them when the time is good to read. However, one major issue that crops up is that we are never really sure how much time will an article take to be consumed. Usually you quickly scroll through the article to check out the length and then make an informed choice of what needs to be done, but on other occasions, we are plain lazy to do that.

The device, which was launched at Rs 29,999 for the 16 GB variant is now available for Rs 21,999 which is Rs 8,000 lesser than the original cost at the time of the launch.

  • SSD Buying Guide: Which SSD is Right for Your Computer?

    7 May 2015 | 6:01 am
    Wondering How to Buy an SSD (Solid State Drive)? The traditional hard disk drive (HDD) has been common in consumer desktops since the time of the first personal computers in the 1980s. HDDs consist of a mechanical arm that seeks across a metal disk to find and store data. Unfortunately, mechanical parts mean that hard drives are often the first components to wear out in a computer, while the rate of data retrieval is limited by mechanical realities. In contrast, solid state drives (SSDs) have no moving parts and rapidly store data using electronic means. Technological advances have finally…

    How do Pinhole glasses (spectacles, eyeglasses or sunglasses) work? Pinhole glasses are modern technology miracles as they allow people with blurry vision to see clear objects without the need of prescription lenses and glasses. They are an alternative to corrective glasses and can be used to improve vision and sight. The design and shape of pinhole glasses is similar to normal frames, with one small difference, the pinhole glasses have tiny holes in the lenses. The pinholes are made of an opaque sheet that has tiny holes on it, and is attached to frames. They can be worn like normal glasses.

    Imagine a world where small to awkwardly large, immensely powerful handheld, electronic gizmos control their owners by memorizing them with time-consuming games, droning music, cat videos, boring news, endless shopping deals and what we used to call “informational websites”. Now imagine your job, as if it’s not tough enough with all the acronym-based procedures and fussy, fire-breathing, hyphenated-loving project managers demanding your commitment to “deadlines”, is to develop all sort of wonderful things for these tiny screens such as noble, corporate proclamation “sites” and…
  • Our Workflow: git-flow

    Michael Sypolt
    6 May 2015 | 6:03 am
    Introduction When developing software or a website, version control is necessary for developer collaboration and to keep track of changes in code, in case a change needs to be reviewed or reverted. There are several programs that can be used to accomplish this goal, one of which is git. This document will discuss the way that we here at NuRelm use git for not only version control and collaboration, but also for site database backups. When using git in this manner, it is recommended to either control your own remote git server or to use the private setting for a hosted git server. This would…

    by Frederic Filloux On the ad blocking front, the situation keeps getting worse. Until now, the media industry pretended to ignore the problem, perhaps waiting for a miracle cure. This might turn into a long lull.   In coming weeks, a large analytic firm will release disturbing figures on the state of the ad blocking scene. According to someone who has advanced knowledge of the data, on desktop computers and on critical segments of the digital audience, the use of ad blocking keeps rising exponentially.

    Frédéric Filloux
    4 May 2015 | 12:23 am
    by Frederic Filloux Circa, the clever smartphone news app, failed to live up to its promises. The fiasco stems from the smartphone advertising market’s inherent weakness, from Circa’s inability to catch up with evolving reading habits, and from an insufficient editorial proposition.  In mid-2013, many were praising Circa. The app was kind of unique at the time (see this Monday Note about it); it was built on a clever news flow rearrangement, truncated for faster reading; quotes were pulled out, sources listed apart in a precise manner. Circa gave readers the ability to follow-up on a…

Dumping one’s entire body of knowledge on easily bored investors won’t help. The best pitch is one that quickly moves from monologue to conversation. The First 70 Minutes of The Hour. When, in 2002, I was invited to join the ranks of venture investors by Barry Weinman, my Gentleman Capitalist mentor, I voiced a concern: I didn’t want to go blind looking at PowerPoint presentations for the rest of my life. Gentleman that he is, Barry didn’t — and…

    It’s your granddad’s birthday — but what should you buy him? You could get him socks (again), some gardening equipment, or perhaps a large bottle of whisky… Or you could buy him a Chromebook. Elderly People and Technology Chromebooks have often been criticized as being too ‘bare’, unable to perform tasks that most frequent computer users take for granted. While you can argue all day about whether or not that’s true, theirs is no denying that they are not as full-featured as a Windows, Mac, or Linux machine. For an older person, that could be a blessing.

    When it comes to home networking questions, what we’re really looking for are two things: faster speeds and better reliability. Any router that improves on one – or both – of these things takes a prominent position as the next best thing. But is it? Several new(ish) high-priced routers are starting to make their rounds on the tech sites; the most notable of these being the Nighthawk X6 3200. Which, let’s admit, sounds really freaking cool. But does it do anything your current router can’t? Will it be a significant improvement for your home network? It depends.

But if you really want fast, then you probably won’t find a better platform than Tinder. The problem with online dating sites — depending on how you look at it — is that they try to find suitable partners with mathematical formulas. These suitable matches aren’t always local, which means being stuck in an online relationship. And if you’re just looking for something casual, ending the relationship is never so easy. So, Tinder.

    According to a new study, the total number of knee replacement surgeries performed in the United States shows a significant increase. The study published in the Journal of Bone and Joint Surgery (JBJS) (June 2014 edition) found that the total knee replacements (TKR) had tripled during 1993 – 2009, while hip replacement surgeries doubled during the same period. A higher prevalence of overweight and obesity in the US accounted for about 95 percent increase in these orthopedic surgical procedures, particularly with younger patients being affected to a greater extent. Data suggests that excess…
  • Obesity in Adults: Importance of Screening and Management

    19 May 2015 | 10:59 pm
    Obesity is considered as a leading public health problem globally. The rates of obesity have increased significantly over the past few years in the United States. It is estimated that more than two thirds of the US adults are overweight or obese. This condition is directly linked to other serious health conditions including heart disease, diabetes, stroke, and respiratory problems. Recent research suggests that the risk of developing many cancers and dying from them is higher among people who are overweight. According to the 2014 Cancer Progress Report from the American Association for Cancer…

    Dear Sam,  We all hear of and talk about the perils of not properly licensing music and photos for use within the corporate environment as well as the implications of allowing users to download and/or store their own music and photos on corporate devices. There is the possibility that the corporate could be liable for the fees associated with the use of the IPR from the music and/or photos. But what is that possible liability?

    As an analyst who focuses on network management research, I am particularly intrigued by software-defined networking (SDN). As SDN architectures are deployed in data centers, local area networks and WANs, network management practices will have to evolve.

Is your performance management tool able to model and monitor an SDN controller? If you have…

    There seems to be a direct correlation between how successful business professionals are and their level of impatience. While I am not familiar with any studies on this particular subject, it is simple logic that the most productive employees are those who most frequently demand rapid response to service requests. From my past experience managing and providing IT administrative support, I can attest that these individuals are usually the most irritating—constantly requesting access to new applications, data, and other business resources with expectations of an immediate response.

Over the years spent on developing and designing software solutions I have noticed the tendency to overcomplicate things by developers, DB architects and UI designers. After a certain time the reasons for that have eventually become clear to me. What I have observed is the fact that everyone focuses on their layer. They don’t pay enough attention to other parts of the system and don’t know how they could help their colleagues working on other…

    C Finn

    Mad Men has been a favorite show of mine for a while. While I can say I loved the compelling characters and the nuanced writing, often the fun came in the workplace drama. The pitches were enthralling, the challenges and frustrations familiar, and the successes inspiring. The show spanned the years 1960 to 1970, really the golden age of advertising but – the infancy of market research. Market research is not unheard of in Sterling, Cooper, & Draper (and its many incarnations).

  • The Most Common Innovation Mistake to Avoid

    One of my favorite questions to ask clients is, “What does the term ‘innovation’ mean to your organization?” Over the years I’ve gotten used to the quizzical looks I get in response, but when it becomes clear it’s not a rhetorical question, it has led to very valuable discussions. My general observation is that most organizations don’t really know what innovation means to them, leading to confusion and misalignment of resources and goals, which severely limits the chances of successfully innovating. Because you can’t measure what you can’t define, failure to align on an…

    For the last few months news from the SEO community has been centered mainly on whether websites are “mobile friendly” and how much this will help them. If you’re sick of talking mobile, or haven’t gotten your own site up to snuff yet, you may groan to hear that Bing is now launching its own mobile search algorithm. But don’t worry: this one wears kid gloves.

But actually, as it turns out, no they don’t. That’s according to a recent survey of consumers’ mobile website preferences.

  • PEER-TO-PEER LENDING: How digital lending marketplaces are disrupting the predominant banking model

    Evan Bakker
    28 May 2015 | 5:00 pm
    Banks have historically handled most consumer and small business lending because they have the resources to assess a borrower's creditworthiness, and the regulatory approval to fund loans. However, this model has some key inefficiencies – interest rates are not individualized, the costs of underwriting loans are high, loan decisions can take months, and small businesses in particular have been shut out of the process. This has left room for the growth of online lending marketplaces – dubbed peer-to-peer (P2P) lenders – that leverage the internet to give both borrowers and investors a…

It turns out, though, Burke may have been trolling all of us. Instead, he has a hacked watch face that shows off some pretty cute dessert doodles. Rumors of Milkshake are exaggerated. My watch face…

    Sony and LG tablets to come with Microsoft apps preinstalled via - Microsoft continues its bid for domination on the Android platform by announcing that its apps will come preinstalled in Sony and LG tablets. Yes, you can expect Onedrive, Skype, and Office apps right out of the box when you buy future tablets by these companies. This is an interesting and rather bold move by Microsoft.

New finance models, like leasing, came to the rescue.The next big challenge to fall by the wayside might be in making solar available to the millions of people and businesses who don’t have a rooftop of their own for a system.A community solar project taking shape in Colorado this spring.

  • China Solar Power Surges: Leaves Entire World Behind

    Pete Danko
    26 Apr 2015 | 8:06 am
    China issued an update on its solar progress this week and made every other solar-seeking country around the world feel kind of pathetic.The National Energy Board said 5.04 GW was installed in the first quarter of 2015. To put that in perspective, China’s three-month total was just a gigawatt shy of what the U.S. installed in all of 2014 – and it was a good year for the Americans, their best ever. And as an Australia-based renewable energy website noted, 5.04 GW is “an amount the Australian government has said would be impossible to install within five years.”image via…

  • 5 Reasons Chromebooks are the Perfect Computer For an Elderly Person

    28 May 2015 | 2:00 pm
    It’s your granddad’s birthday — but what should you buy him? You could get him socks (again), some gardening equipment, or perhaps a large bottle of whisky… Or you could buy him a Chromebook. Elderly People and Technology Chromebooks have often been criticized as being too ‘bare’, unable to perform tasks that most frequent computer users take for granted. While you can argue all day about whether or not that’s true, theirs is no denying that they are not as full-featured as a Windows, Mac, or Linux machine. For an older person, that could be a blessing.
  • Are Tri-Band Wireless-AC Routers Actually Faster?

    Bryan Clark
    28 May 2015 | 1:00 pm
    When it comes to home networking questions, what we’re really looking for are two things: faster speeds and better reliability. Any router that improves on one – or both – of these things takes a prominent position as the next best thing. But is it? Several new(ish) high-priced routers are starting to make their rounds on the tech sites; the most notable of these being the Nighthawk X6 3200. Which, let’s admit, sounds really freaking cool. But does it do anything your current router can’t? Will it be a significant improvement for your home network? It depends.
  • How to Find & Replace Outdated Windows Drivers

    28 May 2015 | 12:00 pm
    Your drivers might be outdated and need updating, but how are you to know? A driver is software that communicates with your hardware to make it work with your operating system. If you’re having system trouble, like a printer not working or games crashing, then it might be indicative of your drivers needing updating. Drivers are available for your video card, audio, motherboard and much more. However, you don’t always need to update your drivers for the sake of it. If everything is working well on your system, then you might be better off leaving everything as it is. If...Read the…

    Being single and ready to mingle can be tough. That’s why online dating is so prevalent, what with how convenient and fast it is. But if you really want fast, then you probably won’t find a better platform than Tinder. The problem with online dating sites — depending on how you look at it — is that they try to find suitable partners with mathematical formulas. These suitable matches aren’t always local, which means being stuck in an online relationship. And if you’re just looking for something casual, ending the relationship is never so easy. So, Tinder.

    16 May 2015 | 5:14 pm
    By now, you’ve doubtless heard the term “cord cutting”. It’s an imposing name for a simple process: dumping your cable or satellite provider in favor of internet-delivered content. Cord cutters have only recently begun to truly grow in number, and many of us are left to wonder: what exactly should we make of this trend? Depending on who you listen to, cord cutting is either the way of the future and the death knell of traditional TV models, or a passing blip in the radar that industry giants can comfortably ignore. The truth, of course, is a mix of the two. New means of…

Not a bad-ass, ultra-rugged Rambo Lambo redux, but a car-like crossover for the new, eco-conscious millennium. They called it Urus.

  • Australia’s cycling media and governing bodies are complicit in the doping problem

    Craig Fry, Associate Professor, Centre for Cultural Diversity and Wellbeing at Victoria University
    27 May 2015 | 9:07 pm
    Stuart O'Grady in action. Flickr/cas_ks , CC BYLast week in this Column I asked the question: Should past cycling dopers continue to benefit from the sport they cheated? It was prompted by hearing that Stuart O’Grady, one of Australia’s best-loved and most successful cyclists and a confessed doper, was to be a co-host in the new SBS Bike Lane program which started last Sunday. I argued the sport of cycling needs a stronger message to counter the current dominant impression about it – that cheats ultimately prosper. I made a plea for Australian cycling to distance itself from…
  • A bit of coding in school may be a dangerous thing for the IT industry

    Robyn McNamara, Assistant Lecturer in Software Engineering; PhD candidate in Computer Science Education at Monash University
    27 May 2015 | 8:59 pm
    Teaching children to code is nothing new but does that teach them enough about the IT industry. Flickr/San Jos Library, CC BY-SAIt sounds compelling, but what does Opposition leader Bill Shorten actually mean when he says all secondary school pupils should be taught “digital technologies, computer science and coding”? And, equally importantly, why? In his budget reply speech, as part of a focus on science and technology education, he stated that “coding” should be part of Australia’s national curriculum. He doesn’t define precisely what he means by “coding”, but it’s likely…
  • Science can influence policy and benefit the public – here's how

    April Reside, Postdoctoral Research Fellow in Spatial Ecology at James Cook University
    27 May 2015 | 1:04 pm
    Research by James Cook University was rapidly translated into policy that is helping to preserve Queensland's regions against the effects of climate change. Nathan Siemers/Flickr, CC BY-SAWe have all heard the calls to translate research into action, and have it influence policy and management. Each year, volumes of research are published that could help policy makers make better decisions. Yet all-too-often it goes unnoticed. The reality is that different priorities, political agendas, personalities, data licensing, etc. often stand in the way. In rare situations, the stars align and…

    27 May 2015 | 12:14 am
    Boys with toys? Flickr/Simon Rankin, CC BY-NC-NDI was initially rather excited to see that one of my friends and collaborators, Professor Shri Kulkarni from Caltech, had his picture littering my Facebook feed recently. Unfortunately for Shri, it was because in an interview with National Public Radio he had described many scientists as secretly being “boys with toys”. Worse, he had said “You’re not supposed to say that”, which indicated that although it might be controversial, he said it anyway – which is typical of Shri. There are many ways to interpret Shri’s comment, one is…
  • Every world in a grain of sand: John Nash's astonishing geometry

    Daniel Mathews, Lecturer in Mathematics at Monash University

    Surfaces like this are able to be described thanks to the work of Nash. Hevea Project, CC BY-SAAs has been widely reported, John Forbes Nash Jr died tragically in a car accident on May 23 of this year. Many tributes have been paid to this great mathematician, who was made famous by Sylvia Nasar’s biography A Beautiful Mind and the subsequent movie based on that book. Much has been said about Nash’s work on game theory. But less has been said about Nash’s other mathematical achievements. Many mathematicians who understand Nash’s work would agree, I think, that although his work in game…

HYCOPTER is being readied for a record flight endurance of 4 hours, or 8 to 10 times the average flight duration of equivalent systems today. Unlike any other rotorcraft, HYCOPTER makes use of its frame structure to store energy in the form of hydrogen instead of air, eliminating energy storage weight. With less lift power required, HYCOPTER’s ultra-light fuel cell turns the hydrogen in its frame into electricity to power its rotors. With HUS breakthrough technology, today’s 20-30 minute multi-rotor missions shift…
  • New ‘deep learning’ technique enables robot to learn motor tasks via trial and error

    23 May 2015 | 2:33 am
    UC Berkeley researchers have developed a new deep learning technique that enable robots to learn motor tasks through trial and error using a process that more closely approximates the way humans learn, marking a major milestone in the field of artificial intelligence. They demonstrated their technique, a type of reinforcement learning, by having a robot complete various tasks — putting a clothes hanger on a rack, assembling a toy plane, screwing a cap on a water bottle, and more — without pre-programmed details about its surroundings. The UC Berkeley researchers turned to a new branch of…

    L’incubo di vedere il proprio PC rifiutarsi di partire è presente ovunque, anche quando si parla di Mac. Stando a quanto possiamo vedere, un portatile o Pc fisso Mac può non partire per vari motivi, a volte anche stupidaggini. Andiamo passo passo perciò a guardare cause e soluzioni.

    La Microsoft ha sempre nell’interesse quello di aiutare noi e la nostra sicurezza. Quando infatti prendiamo per definizione l’uso della password, sappiamo bene che esistono una serie di contromisure per evitare che la nostra parola segreta venga indovinata o svelata. E’ anche vero che esistono strumenti capaci di modificare immediatamente la password, ma c’è attualmente una funzione in più che pochi conoscono che interviene per proteggere il nostro account da persone indesiderate.   Da qui viene la domanda effettiva: “Perché Windows, quando sbaglio password, ci mette più…

    When you are preparing to get a business started, one thing you have to nail down is a business plan. I speak from experience on this. Not too long ago friends talked me into starting a small business. I was so excited with the idea of getting started and being my own boss, that I did not create a business plan. And I suffered because I bypassed this step initially. A business plan is more than just deciding you are going to be the best in your field, it is a game plan to get you from idea to successful business. It's important for e-commerce businesses too.

    It seemed only a a couple of years back that everyone was touting how hardware engineering no longer mattered anymore. What with Intel and others playing out Moore’s law, why invest in hardware engineering when the real smarts were all in software?

And it turns out I was at an HP Storage Deep Dive the previous month and they also spoke on the topic. One key aspect of software defined storage is how customers can consume the product.

    Confession: I have a love hate relationship with product documentation. While I can appreciate the value of well written technical documentation, I can’t help but feel it has a poor ROI these days. So when I started my current company, I committed myself to investing in an intuitive user experience instead of traditional online documentation. Unfortunately as the product became more complex and we either failed to contain the complexity or had features that could not be reduced to a simple UI, I found myself looking for alternatives. What follows is a blog I never thought I’d write: my…

    Technology is an amazing thing, for many it’s miraculous, and once enjoyed, the benefits are hard to give up. Ten years in technology is a long long time. Many are predicting a technological utopia that will bring solutions to many of the problems the world is experiencing right now, with big data, the internet of connected everything, and new advanced gadgets fixing many of the ills facing society at present. The reality will most probably be far more mundane. Technology will race ahead and many will benefit. Overall, the next 10 years will bring massive advances, but they will be unevenly…

    The scariest line of characters on the internet right now makes absolutely no sense, but will crash your iPhone nonetheless. Word on the web is that Apple’s CoreText API can’t render a specific string of non-sensical characters, so whenever an incoming message containing the mysterious text is displayed as a banner alert or notification, the system will restart. As Ars Technica verified, this means that web browsers and other apps running on current versions of iOS and OS X are also affected.

When Google bought YouTube for $.165 billion in 2006, many thought that the search giant had paid over the odd for the service that had not turned a profit. However, then came the iPhone and the mobile revolution, where suddenly everyone had a camera in their pocket at all times, ready to shoot videos of their friends, activities, and anything that happens around them.

  • How to create and implement a rewarding and innovative social recruiting strategy? Notes from the #RecHangout

    28 May 2015 | 2:47 am
    Originally posted on UK Recruiter Today we ran another great #Rechangout with the unwieldy title of How to create and implement a rewarding and innovative social recruiting strategy? We were joined by Andy Headworth and Steve Ward as well as last minute guest John Heffernan. Our host, Alan Whitford, did a sterling job of keeping the conversation on track whilst Mark Stephens (Technology in Recruitment Alliance and founder of the F10 Group) and  Louis Welcomme (Colleague Software) also chipped in. As usual I looked like I did nothing whilst behind the scenes I was busily…
  • The Future of Recruitment is not Technology

    20 May 2015 | 2:12 am
    Quite simply, as Greg Savage put it in a recent article, “the future of recruitment is where art meets science. Where technology combines with highly sophisticated human influencing skills”. You could actually stop reading at this point, if you didn’t want to know any more detail behind this, but that’s a bit like a scientist being told the answer to life itself is DNA and then not wanting to know more about how that works. The advances in recruitment technology in the last 5 years have been significant in comparison to the previous 10-15 years. Not since the first…

    OK so the dust is still settling on the General Election and for many this new political dawn will be the start of a new job search…. Online Recruitment will no doubt receive a rush of applications and CV uploads this week as the ex-Party Leaders and ex-MP’s rush to find new employment opportunities. Some might say that the sheltered – and often comfortable – positions they have held in public office will create a significant shock factor when faced with real world job-seeker prospects. Joining the multitude of job candidates, politicians should stand out from the crowd but do they?
  • The Small Business and the Big Skill Gap

    8 May 2015 | 1:45 am
    Understandably, there is a lot of talk at the moment about the growing skills gap across many sectors. We know it exists because the number of live advertised vacancies is growing at a faster rate than the number of the same jobs being filled and when businesses start to suffer, they make loud squeaking and grumbling noises that manifest themselves through the various media and communications channels. It’s the big boys mostly that get heard, but believe me it’s the small businesses that really feel this the most. After all, you think about it, bigger companies with bigger budgets and…

    Hilton Lipschitz
    17 May 2015 | 12:28 pm
    Rust is a project I have been observing for a while now, an attempt to create a new, fast, safe, systems programming language to replace C++, but with better memory safety and a bullet-proof concurrency model. Last week, Rust hit 1.0, and I think I may start testing it out for highly threaded, small and fast calculation tools that I would normally write and fight in C++. If any of you are using it, please let me know what for in the comments. And before anyone points me at Google’s excellent Go language, I am already looking into it to speed up, parallelize and replace a ton of Ruby and…
  • The Perfect Keyboard(s) (for Me)

    Hilton Lipschitz
    8 Mar 2015 | 11:14 am
    I’m not a keyboard snob. But I love using my current keyboards now. Background: I was very happy with the Apple “chicklet” style keyboards and even wrote about it in Not the Clicky Keyboard. There I declared that clicky keyboards were not for me. I was wrong. But I did not know it at the time. A while back, my boss went on a buying bender and purchased a whole bunch of different keyboards, including the DAS and some Microsoft ones. I tried them out too. Neither of us liked any of them, so he returned them all. As a joke, I ordered the CODE keyboard to show that I could buy…
  • One-Key Format Presets in Scrivener

    Hilton Lipschitz
    7 Mar 2015 | 2:37 pm
    I am writing a lot of business documents in Scrivener, and even though it’s the wrong way to do it, I use Scrivener’s format presets (think paragraph styles) to quickly format headings, bulleted lists and paragraphs in each sub-document. This way I minimize post-processing (and the business format is intentionally boring so I do not need any fancy layouts). But it’s a hassle to have to take my hands off the keyboard to click through the Format / Apply Formatting / Apply Preset menu tree or hit the tiny format preset dropdown ¶a to set the current paragraph style.

  • Seeing the Bigger Picture

    Hilton Lipschitz
    31 Jan 2015 | 7:23 am
    It is quite astounding to me that an astonishing amount of work is done and code written without any knowledge, view or understanding of the bigger picture. And yet no-one seems to have taken the time to consider just how remarkably ridiculous this common situation is. How can people be expected to perform at their best and create the best products when they have no clue as to what the big picture or goal is? And yet that seems to be the norm. I started thinking more about this topic yesterday when discussing the work our Quantitative Analysts were doing with them. They were keenly focussed…

Even those of us that never experienced the greatness of the Nexus 5 felt an inexplicable pang of wistfulness when its bumpy bottom made a cameo during Google's I/O 2015 keynote today. Yes, the phone serving as the backdrop for Google's announcement of USB-C support in Android M was none other than the 2013 flagship Android handset, the LG-manufactured Nexus 5.

    After loading Google's first developer preview of Android M onto a Nexus 6, we've just had our first peek at what's to come when the big update is ready for consumer release in Q3. For starters, most of the most important features that Google announced today are nowhere to be found. The very cool Now on Tap feature isn't yet active (hopefully that'll come in a later preview update), Android Pay's not yet ready, and obviously the Nexus 6 isn't going to do much in the way of scanning fingerprints. So what's left? Well, the first developer preview shows that Google has been working to refine…

    The promise of the smart home is a world of appliances that anticipate your needs and do exactly what you want them to at the touch of a button, but that vision devolves into chaos when none of those devices can actually talk to each other. That's more or less the state of the smart home today, but now Google is trying to offer a solution.

Many players have attempted cloud gaming to various degrees of success, but no-one has yet cracked it.  Streaming games from the cloud is more difficult than video streaming primarily because every second counts, and a couple of seconds lag can be detrimental to gameplay.
