Drug Dealer Analogy Deputy Solicitor General Malcolm Stewart…called in to defend the antitrust ruling…tried several times Monday to compare Apple to a driver who carries a narcotics dealer to a drug pick up.

But when Apple introduced the iPad, many in the IT community embraced the product and iPads quickly became the tablet of record in many enterprises.  However, while the iPad hit a nerve in corporations, Apple’s ability to truly sell into and support the enterprise use of iPads in big business was always a concern.

    Hundreds of protesters gathered at the Mall of America in Bloomington, Minnesota on Saturday, forcing parts of the building to close and ignoring the mall's warnings that the protest could result in arrests. At the height of holiday shopping season, similar demonstrations were planned at malls across the country Saturday, including Philadelphia's King of Prussia Mall and shopping centers in Cleveland, Atlanta and Lancaster, Pennsylvania.

    20 Dec 2014 | 12:00 pm
    Five Years Ago Seems like there was lots of news about DRM this week in 2009. Cory Doctorow discussed how difficult Apple made it to publish a DRM-free audiobook, Blu-ray introduced the idea of "managed copies", a Microsoft Office DRM bug locked some users out of their own documents, Sony stood up in favor of expensive, DRM-laden ebooks, and film DRM threatened to prevent Avatar from being shown in 3D in some theaters. The only voice of reason was David Pogue, who pointed out that DRM-free ebooks boosted his sales. France was a land of contradiction this week. Avid copyright defender and…

  • Update On Ten-Year Campaign To Give Copyright Industry Another Monopoly: WIPO's Broadcasting Treaty

    19 Dec 2014 | 7:39 pm
    Say what you will about the copyright industry, but it certainly doesn't give up. No matter how many times a bad idea is fought off, sooner or later, it comes back again. The best example of this is probably WIPO's Broadcasting Treaty, which Techdirt has been covereing for a decade: in 2004, 2005, 2008, 2011 and 2013. This campaign to give broadcasters yet more monopoly rights -- as if they didn't have enough already -- is still underway, and the EFF provides us with a timely update on the current state of play: The latest draft of the treaty also attempts to control post-fixation uses of…

    19 Dec 2014 | 6:21 pm
    The Los Angeles Police Department is getting ready to deploy 7,000 body cameras. That's (mostly) good news. Body cams have the potential to deter bad behavior both by cops and by those they interact with. It's not a complete fix for police misconduct but it's far better than allowing things to continue to run as they have for so many years. The first 800 cameras have been financed by private donors, including director Steven Spielberg and the Dodgers organization. While traditional public funding would likely have been available, this one-time fundraiser has allowed the process to move much…

Here are just a few more links on these so-called cockroaches of the sea. A presumably very old lobster was caught off the coast of California, weighing 12 pounds. That's not actually a very big lobster, but big enough to befriend and get a name (Albert). [url] It's a myth that lobsters are immortal, but they do live a long time and don't show many visible signs of age (other than size). It's actually difficult to estimate the age of…

    Department of Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson on Thursday said the United States "is actively considering a range of options" to take in response to the Sony hack. The hack is "very serious," Johnson said, though he refused to label it as a terrorist attack. Although there has been widespread suspicion that North Korea engineered the hack, Johnson said the U.S. is "at this point ... not prepared to officially say who we believe was behind this attack." The FBI is investigating.

    Mojang has partnered with Telltale Games to create a brand new Minecraft game that will be narrative-driven. Dubbed "Minecraft: Story Mode," the series will be set in the world of Minecraft, but it will feature an original story that combines new characters with familiar themes and is driven by player choice. It will be a separate standalone product. "We're not intending on creating an 'official' story for Steve, or explaining the world of Minecraft in detail," said Mojang spokesperson Owen Hill.

  • Lenovo’s next phone could last 46 days on a single charge

    Tom Pritchard
    19 Dec 2014 | 8:30 am
    Some of us will remember the good old days of the dumbphone. The days when we could forget to plug our phone into charge for days at a time and not suffer the consequences. These days some smartphones can’t even go 24 hours without being put on life support, something that does not fly with Lenovo. Rumour has it that Lenovo’s next P70t mobile will have a 4,000 mAh battery, and will be able to last 46 days on a single charge. Before you get all excited though, be aware that this isn’t an official statistic from Lenovo just yet, and even if it was it’s only the standby…

  • Some big changes could be coming to TouchID

    Tom Pritchard
    19 Dec 2014 | 6:05 am
    The introduction of TouchID meant that iPhone and iPad users no longer had to remember another of those pesky four-digit passcodes to unlock their phone. All they had to do was scan their fingerprints on the home button to get in. As simple and effective as it was, TouchID could be seeing further improvements in the future. A new patent uncovered by Patently Apple reveals that the company might include motion input in the TouchID button. What this means is that you put your finger on the sensor and move it around to unlock your phone. Examples used in the patent include a safe-style…
  • A plant extract’s better than patches for quitting smoking

    Diane Shipley
    19 Dec 2014 | 5:29 am
    Smoking’s a tough habit to break, but scientists have found a new way to make giving up the cancer sticks a little easier. According to a new study reported in New Scientist, a plant extract called cytisine is actually more effective than nicotine patches or gum at helping people to quit. It’s taken from the laburnum tree, which grows across Europe. It’s toxic at high doses, but low amounts have been used as a stop smoking aid since the 1960s, mostly in Bulgaria and Poland, where tablets containing the extract are produced. An early trial showing its effectiveness back in the 70s…

    James O'Malley
    19 Dec 2014 | 7:19 am
    One of the most annoying things in tech is when you spend your hard earned cash on a new toy – say, a phone or a tablet – only for a couple of weeks later have the company announce a new model. In an instant you no longer have the shiniest, newest thing – but last year’s news burning a £500 hole in your pocket. So what about this Christmas? Is that present under the tree going to stay cool and trendy for long? Probably not – as in literally the first week of January the Consumer Electronics Show kicks off in Vegas, where a new raft of gadgets are announced…

  • Is it ethical to report the contents of the hacked Sony documents?

    19 Dec 2014 | 2:32 am
    Since Sony Pictures was hacked earlier this month we’ve seen a slew of stories do the rounds – reporting everything from the studio’s forthcoming films, to internal email arguments between executives and emails from celebrities themselves. Perhaps unsurprisingly, this unfiltered gossip was lapped up by journalists and consumers alike. Meanwhile, a few months ago in September dozens of celebrities photos were obtained and shared online. The reaction to this was horror – and everyone, especially in the media, was pretty much agreed that viewing or sharing the photos…

    Google is planning a version of Android that will run on cars on-board computers, according to reports. According to Reuters the new system would be different from the previously announced Android Auto, because rather than simply acting as an in-car display for your phone (with the phone doing all of the clever stuff), it would be the computing power in the car being put to work. According to Reuters, the next version of Android – known as “Android M” for the time being – will have a car-specific variant produced for this purpose. Such a move would have a number of…

    As 2014 winds down, Windows Phone is at a crucial stage in its lifecycle. Again. Earlier in 2014, Microsoft closed the acquisition of Nokia’s hardware division and Windows 10 was launched in a Technical Preview form. Nokia’s acquisition, combined with the upcoming Windows 10-based version of the phone operating system, has perhaps resulted in a slight pause in release of true flagship devices that can compete with the latest versions of competing platforms, the iPhone and Android/Nexus lineup.

The company discovered a technique to turn their MRAM memory cell arrays into very sensitive magnetic sensors that have a much larger range than any commercial sensor.The production process is very similar to the MRAM process the company uses, but with a different cell design. Basically it is a very simple sensor that detects changes in a magnetic field from a perpendicular magnet.Crocus thinks that this sensor can be used as a mechanical sensor for flexible displays.

  • Three Maneuvers that will Destroy your Facebook Marketing

    Chad Hill
    20 Dec 2014 | 5:00 pm
    With its active user base of 1.35 billion people worldwide and more than 30 million small businesses with active pages, Facebook is pretty much THE social media marketing platform for small businesses. And with the recent relaunch of the advertising platform Atlas, Facebook is making great strides in advertising too. Think of it this way—for search engine marketing, it’s all Google. Sure, Bing and a few others get some traffic, but anyone who is serious about generating leads looks to Google first. Likewise, for social media, most businesses start with Facebook. Many businesses do use…
  • Board Games Go Mobile

    Sakshi Sharma
    20 Dec 2014 | 3:00 pm
    Board gaming as an industry has honed a unique style of gameplay, typically focusing on slower pacing, strategic planning, and the social aspects that naturally come with sitting around a table alongside your fellow players. This stands in stark contrast to the experience of most computer and mobile games, which tend to be more solitary experiences or much more fast paced in their action. But the division between digital and physical has diminished in recent years. The advent of mobile technology, and specifically the development of modern mobile UX design paradigms, has created an…

    The Internet of Things (IoT) is often pointed as one of the biggest hits in the near future, and it really is something big tech companies are betting on. So, it should come as no surprise that somewhere in the next few years, all of our appliances like microwaves, washing machines, and other household items will come with Internet access. Just last week, Google announced its intention to take things to a whole new level, by opening research grants for IoT. But, apparently, this technology is not only made of upsides, as discussion about the its potential security hazards came along. Still,…

  • Power-Efficient and Small PSU Built by SilverStone with 80 Plus Gold Rating

    Softpedia News (Sebastian Pop)
    20 Dec 2014 | 2:51 am
    Whereas the soon-to-be-launched 1200W Corsair PSU will drive the high-end power market forward, SilverStone decided to look at the other end of the spectrum, though it refused to sacrifice quality. That's why the upcoming SX500-LG power supply is definitely not a low-end, entry-level product. Instead, it is a 500W power supply unit which not only provides the efficiency benefits of 80 Plus Gold rating, but does it while taking up less space than the ordinary PSU.

  • 1200W Corsair PSU with 80 Plus Platinum Coming Soon

    Softpedia News (Sebastian Pop)
    20 Dec 2014 | 2:25 am
    Power supply units are one area where Corsair has always preferred to do the best it could, even though its products usually end up costing a fair bit of cash because of it. The new HX1200i is the latest evidence of that. While I don't know what price the power supply has, I'm willing to bet it's of $160 - $200 / €130 - €163 (more likely €160 - €200, exchange rates or no), probably on the high side. After all, you can't have a PSU with a wattage of 1200W and 80 Plus Platinum efficiency witho... (read more)

It's not confirmed, but a report published by GDM.OR.JP says the adapter will debut on January 22, 2015. Only two other details about the video board were mentioned: that the GeForce GTX 960 would have a power draw of 150W (deduced from the use of a single 6-pin connector) and that it would have a price of just $210 / €163 or so.

    With Moore's Law less and less likely to survive on the current model of central processing units and semiconductors in general, chip designers are looking into alternatives to not just processor architectures, but the materials they consist of. For those unaware, "Moore's Law" is the observation that, over the history of computing hardware, the number of transistors in a dense integrated circuit doubles around every two years, usually without an attached price rise.

  • BlackBerry Fumbles, Stock Slips – but Profit Comes a Quarter Early

    19 Dec 2014 | 11:23 am
    After a year of surpassing expectations under CEO John Chen, BlackBerry has fumbled. BlackBerry's fiscal third-quarter financial report showed some chinks in the Canadian company's armor. Revenue dropped 34% to less than $800 million, well below analysts' estimates. Shares tanked nearly 10% before recovering partially. Chen described the quarter as "not satisfying." However, he did point to the fact that BlackBerry turned a profit—though only of one cent a share. Experts are suggesting investors shouldn't let the revenue slip distract from the fact the Waterloo-based smartphone maker…

    I tend to keep my photography over on iPadDarkroom, but since I’m writing about iOS photo apps that I’ve discovered or have dominated my work this year, it seemed fitting to look at apps that have influenced my photo work. You’ve likely seen some work created with these apps before, but they’re worth profiling again as my picks because they’ve stood head-and-shoulders above the other apps in the photo editor / filter space. So, on to the apps… Photo Editing and Filter Pixelmator A late entry into the iOS photo editing category, Pixelmator captured my heart first on the Mac with…
  • My iOS App Picks for 2014 — Role Playing Games

    Brad Grier
    14 Dec 2014 | 10:09 am
    Over the year I’ve had a little bit of time to play the occasional iOS Role Playing Game (RPG). What I like in an RPG is good solid story and character development. And it’s through that lens that I’ve selected my picks for Role Playing Games of 2014. Role Playing Games Steve Jackson’s Sorcery! No, not That Steve Jackson, this Steve Jackson. An interesting visual style and robust story-telling really engaged me with this one. As part one of a four-part series, it captures the traditional RPG elements, (movement, storytelling, levelling, encounters, etc) in a way that seems intuitive…

    11 Dec 2014 | 9:08 am
    It’s that time of year again — the year is ending, coming to a close. And we often take time to look back at things we’ve done. In my case, I thought I’d look back at the iOS apps that have most engaged me over the last year. I’ll basically select a ‘winner’ and a ‘runner up’, and give a few reasons why the app captured my attention and interest. So, without further preamble, here’s my first category and selections: eBook reader Marvin Marvin is new to me this year and it’s an excellent example of what an eBook reader should be. Previously I’d used Stanza, but it was…

    20 Dec 2014 | 2:07 pm
    Google has released its top search terms of 2014, and guess what the No. 1 trending meme was? Tim Howard. The goalie for the US soccer team during the World Cup killed it at July 1's USA vs. Belgium game with a personal record of 16 saves.

    16 Nov 2014 | 9:26 am
    Apparently the number of people who see their phone as a gaming device first and foremost and device for communication with the rest of society second, is growing. According to a survey on online and gaming habits in the UK carried out by the Internet Advertising Bureau in 2014, 54% of respondents said that their number one place to game was on their phone. And of that 54%, a quarter of them used their phone for gaming every day. This doesn’t come as that surprising news when you look around you, almost anywhere that you might be.

  • Gadgets to cheat at the casino

    16 Nov 2014 | 9:15 am
    If you want to see the ideal way to cheat at casino, then watch Ocean’s 13, where Danny Ocean and Rusty Ryan (George Clooney and Brad Pitt) are playing craps and jam the three servers at the casino using magnetron devices disguised as lighters. Jamming the servers for three minutes allowing them to have full control of the movement of the dice and they steal a fortune from the casino. Of course, this is fiction, but there have been plenty of devices used over the years to cheat at casinos. Not all of them were successful and many cheaters have been caught in the act and ejected from the…

    Dave Coplin
    19 Dec 2014 | 4:20 am
    Although this is a much longer term trend, in 2015 we will take significant steps closer to a world of “the internet of things” where billions of connected devices surround us, tracking things like our location, well-being, as well as the state of the built environment of the world around us (from light bulbs and elevators through to trains, planes and automobiles), and those devices (or more specifically, the data they generate) are connected and brought to life by a new generation of “intelligent services”.

    Microsoft is currently fighting a court case in the United States, challenging a federal law enforcement warrant issued for customer emails stored in Microsoft’s Dublin data center. The warrant was first served on Microsoft just over a year ago, and since then we’ve been resisting what we see as an attempt to stretch the bounds of law enforcement authority. Emails are the personal property of our customers and as caretakers we must be extremely respectful of their rights. Of course, law enforcement must be able to do its job, but when the seizure of personal correspondence is necessary,…

    With 23 official languages, the European Union is a melting-pot of diverse and rich voices. And while it may be hard for all of them to be heard among the chorus, the call for one universal language that can drive Europe forward is becoming louder. That language is code. Coding is the key to unlocking Europe’s potential, across every industry, sector and profession. In an increasingly digital world, computer science skills have become the basis for driving Europe’s economies – and not just in the ICT sector.

  • This Week In Techdirt History: December 14th - 20th

    Leigh Beadon
    20 Dec 2014 | 12:00 pm
    Five Years Ago Seems like there was lots of news about DRM this week in 2009. Cory Doctorow discussed how difficult Apple made it to publish a DRM-free audiobook, Blu-ray introduced the idea of "managed copies", a Microsoft Office DRM bug locked some users out of their own documents, Sony stood up in favor of expensive, DRM-laden ebooks, and film DRM threatened to prevent Avatar from being shown in 3D in some theaters. The only voice of reason was David Pogue, who pointed out that DRM-free ebooks boosted his sales. France was a land of contradiction this week. Avid copyright defender and…

  • Update On Ten-Year Campaign To Give Copyright Industry Another Monopoly: WIPO's Broadcasting Treaty

    Glyn Moody
    19 Dec 2014 | 7:39 pm
    Say what you will about the copyright industry, but it certainly doesn't give up. No matter how many times a bad idea is fought off, sooner or later, it comes back again. The best example of this is probably WIPO's Broadcasting Treaty, which Techdirt has been covereing for a decade: in 2004, 2005, 2008, 2011 and 2013. This campaign to give broadcasters yet more monopoly rights -- as if they didn't have enough already -- is still underway, and the EFF provides us with a timely update on the current state of play: The latest draft of the treaty also attempts to control post-fixation uses of…
  • LAPD Body Cam Footage Can't Be FOIA'ed; Used In Court Cases Only

    Tim Cushing
    19 Dec 2014 | 6:21 pm
    The Los Angeles Police Department is getting ready to deploy 7,000 body cameras. That's (mostly) good news. Body cams have the potential to deter bad behavior both by cops and by those they interact with. It's not a complete fix for police misconduct but it's far better than allowing things to continue to run as they have for so many years. The first 800 cameras have been financed by private donors, including director Steven Spielberg and the Dodgers organization. While traditional public funding would likely have been available, this one-time fundraiser has allowed the process to move much…
  • DailyDirt: Curious, Yummy Lobsters

    Michael Ho
    19 Dec 2014 | 5:00 pm
    We've pointed out some unusual lobster links before, but there seems to be no end to the discovery of huge lobsters and crazy stories about these invertebrates. Here are just a few more links on these so-called cockroaches of the sea. A presumably very old lobster was caught off the coast of California, weighing 12 pounds. That's not actually a very big lobster, but big enough to befriend and get a name (Albert). [url] It's a myth that lobsters are immortal, but they do live a long time and don't show many visible signs of age (other than size). It's actually difficult to estimate the age of…

    MergeLane ‘discovers, accelerates and invests in exceptional women and the companies they run’. Their motivation is two-fold. First, there are far fewer women in startups than we would expect. MergeLane believe diverse companies are stronger companies, and they want to help narrow the gap. Second, data overwhelmingly shows that venture-backed, female-run companies produce higher returns.

    C.K. Sample III
    30 Nov 2014 | 9:39 am
    The last week has been crazy. The Friday before Thanksgiving, we received a phone call early in the morning from Kristin’s parents and discovered that her Mom’s best friend since they were kids and pseudo-Aunt to Kristin died unexpectedly in her sleep at the young age of 59. Arlene was a bright shining fun person whom I’d known for over 10 years and who was always fun to hang out with. We’d even been on vacation with her and her entire family. The news was tragic, shocking, and the beginning of a very hectic holiday week. Kristin flew to New York on Sunday where she…

    The last time I shaved was the morning of my father’s funeral, which was a month ago. I wanted to have a physical sign of my mourning. Originally I thought to shave my head, but the first thing that Dad said to me when I first arrived in the hospital to see him before he passed was “C.K., your hair is beautiful!” I decided to grow a mourning beard and give it at least a month. It’s been a month, and as you can see, I’m not genetically inclined to grow a beard. Or at least not quickly. It’s actually on the verge of becoming a real beard, and I’m not…

Like Scoble today, who is most likely doing it for a stunt, like he’s done before with Google+ and Posterous (or as I like to call them, dying and dead). It’s a stupid move. The only reason I post as much to twitter as I do is because I have a backup of all that data here on this blog. This is my space. It’s my corner of the Internet that I have full control over. It’s not some other company owning everything I post. That’s important. Since we all first started…

    I always wonder about these hashtag blowups. You know the kind—controversial figure X (or their people) throws out a hashtag that is supposed to function as a Twitter Q&A session. The Internet, being made up of people who love themselves some attention and love themselves a good public shaming even more, go in hard on controversial figure X, who, nine times out of ten, isn’t a sympathetic figure anyway. It’s happened so often that the whole thing has become procedural. So, when CNN floated the #AskACop hashtag ahead of CNN Tonight‘s #CopsUnderFire special, the results…

  • Flaw discovered that could let anyone listen to your cell calls

    19 Dec 2014 | 4:02 pm
    German researchers have discovered security flaws that could let hackers, spies and criminals listen to private phone calls and intercept text messages on a potentially massive scale - even when cellular networks are using the most advanced encryption now available. The flaws, to be reported at a hacker conference in Hamburg this month, are the latest evidence of widespread insecurity on SS7, the global network that allows the world's cellular carriers to route calls, texts and other services to each other. Experts say it's increasingly clear that SS7, first designed in the 1980s, is riddled…

    Jolla released the tenth major update for Sailfish today, bumping the version number to the as always very useful and helpful The name of the update, also as always in Finnish, isn't helping either: Vaarainjärvi. Joking aside, this tenth update is a massive one - virtually every aspect of the operating system is touched upon in some way, from the lower levels all the way up to UI tweaks. It's 1.5GB in size, which is pretty huge in Sailfish terms, so make sure to have enough free space for the initial download.

  • Canada court to order Apple to turn over records in iPhone probe

    18 Dec 2014 | 4:04 am
    The Federal Court of Canada agreed on Wednesday to order Apple Inc's Canadian subsidiary to turn over documents to the Competition Bureau to help investigate whether Apple unfairly used its market power to promote the sale of iPhones. In seeking the order, the Competition Bureau said agreements Apple negotiated with wireless carriers may have cut into competition by encouraging the companies to maintain or boost the price of rival phones. It'd be very welcome if the relationships between major OEMs and carriers, as well as between the individual carriers, came under very close scrutiny. In…
  • 'Tis the season for debugging

    17 Dec 2014 | 3:07 pm
    Since the last time, the expression parser has grown several new capabilities. We are now able to infer the types of operands, and as such one no longer needs to set the type that one wishes the value to be returned as. A further consequence is that expressions can now return arbitrarily typed values as results, not just simple numeric values. This means that, for instance, an expression can return a data member of a class, and if that member is itself an object or other more complex type, it can then be expanded to look at its internal values. I am by far not knowledgeable enough to comment…

    Previously (but I missed last year), I’ve listed some last minute Tennessee-related holiday gift ideas. This year, the emphasis is on food grown or produced (e.g. cooked, prepared, collected, etc.) in the state. (And for the few who may read this on Christmas Eve, I’ve even included a couple Tennessee-related products or distribution channels for the desperate.) These are all products (or collections of products) that can be purchased online, but you need to get your orders in early this week (by December 20) to beat shipping or delivery deadlines.

Three more have switched to developing for business, leaving behind consumer projects.

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

  • How to Prevent Gmail from Trimming your Email Signature

    Amit Agarwal
    18 Dec 2014 | 11:27 am
    Gmail has this annoying habit of trimming content that it thinks is repetitive or not relevant to the ongoing email conversation. For example, if you reply to an email message, the recipient will only see what you have written and everything else in the thread would stay hidden until they manually click the 3 dots (ellipsis) that say “Show Trimmed Content.” This doesn’t always work as expected though. Gmail may sometimes hide your actual reply if it contains content identical to other messages in the thread. Also, if you attach a signature to your outgoing email messages,…

    What do you do when your Google Drive is running out of storage space? You either add more storage or the inexpensive option is that you clean up your Drive and delete the large files that are hogging up the bulk of space. But how do know where these big files are hiding in your Drive? Google Drives lists the file size but without the sort option. If you switch to the List View in Google Drive (the list icon is near the Settings gear), it will show the sizes of all your files but unfortunately there’s no option to sort that list by their sizes.

On Friday, the FBI said it had concluded North Korean responsibility because of several similarities in the malware code, the computer control network used and the software tools used against Sony and that used in previous attacks in South Korea that had been blamed on North Korea.

Late last week London airspace was shut down due to an IT failure at the National Air Traffic Services (NATS.) While the cause of the problem is being blamed on a “single line of computer code”, the decades-old NATS computer system and architecture has to take part of the blame. Could this have been prevented with more modern architecture? Definitely. ‘IT resilience’ is an important concept dealing with how IT systems can be designed so that they don’t fail, or if they do…

From the success of the iOS 8 to the initial explosion of the iPhone 6 onto the consumer market, the brand is now firmly established as the dominant force in the smartphone and mobile markets. In fact, initial sales of the iPhone 6 have helped Apple to secure a record share of the smartphone market this year, with their handsets now accounting for a staggering 39.5% of all sales within this space. This represents an unprecedented rise of 10.4% between July and October in 2014, and sets a trend that is likely…

  • BlackBerry Tells Loyal Fans: Rejoice

    19 Dec 2014 | 1:37 pm
    Looking very similar to the BlackBerry Bold, the beleaguered company has announced its new BlackBerry Classic. It’s smaller and most importantly, sports a full QWERTY keyboard and navigation buttons that are not virtual. That’s right; you can do your input on physical keys once again. Nicely designed keys let your fingers know where they are and increase the accuracy of input. Aimed at diehard fans who held on to the original BlackBerry which had been considered the best game in town, the Classic is reminiscent in design. If the newer, bigger touchscreen devices are too bulky for your…

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

  • The Personal Effort

    Alex Goldfayn
    15 Dec 2014 | 1:34 pm
    Personal communication, along with certain rhinos and all Blackberry models, is on the endangered species list. In an era when anyone can use technology to shout anything to anybody at any time, the simple one-on-one communication will, ironically, help you powerfully stand out from the crowd. So: When you send a group email, send a separate one to a customer, for no other reason than to express appreciation for their partnership and maybe to see how you can serve them better. When you’re thinking about emailing somebody, don’t. Pick up the phone. Also, send hand-written notes.

Because of their varying perspectives on your business, their answers will be far-ranging, with little, if any, repetition. You’ll also gain powerful insight on your people: who’s talking about what they can do, and who’s talking about what you need to do for them? Ask your people, and ask yourself: what can you do (that you…

    It’s December 1. Here is a powerful, fast, easy technique for strong revenue growth this month; 1. Make a quick list of all the customers and prospects who discussed a deal with you this year, but did not buy. (Go back through quotes, proposals, and emails to make this list). Total time for this activity: one hour, and that’s a maximum. 2. Organize your list in order of customers / prospects / products / sales you’d like to close most. That is, put the most attractive ones at the top, least attractive at bottom. Total time: 15 minutes. 3. Next to each person on your list,…

In 15 minutes or less (but often in 90 seconds), you can tell somebody who can buy from you about how they’d improve if they do so. Send an email. Write a hand-written note.

We improve lives and companies, but we spend our days responding to customer…

She sang “Christmas (Baby Please Come Home)” for the late night host one last time, after singing it for him each year since 1986. Friday’s performance was considered her most epic version, as she was accompanied by strings and even some indoor falling snow.

It was barely a week that Xiaomi was banned from importing and selling phones in India and another new Chinese player has been handed over the same fate. The reason here is different, but OnePus would not be allowed to import or sell its products in India till the ban is rescinded. However, the catch here is that unlike Xiaomi there is no immediate ban and OnePlus will be able to sell off its current stocks until they run out and only beyond that would not be allowed to market or sell their devices. The reason for the ban is…

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.

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.

For the quarter ended last September, Intel scored $14.6B in Sales, 65% Gross Margin and $4.5B in Operating Income, a nice progression from the same period a year ago: A 65% Gross Margin is enviable for any company, and exceptional for a hardware maker: Intel’s GM is up in software territory.

    Severe droughts are forcing researchers to rethink how technology can increase the supply of fresh water.Even in drought-stricken California, San Diego stands out. It gets less rain than parched Los Angeles or Fresno. The region has less groundwater than many other parts of the state. And more than 80 percent of water for homes and businesses is imported from sources that are increasingly stressed. The Colorado River is so overtaxed that it rarely reaches the sea; water originating in the Sacramento River delta, more than 400 miles north, was rationed by state officials this year, cutting off…

  • AR Management and its Importance in Medical Billing and Collections

    Rajeev Rajagopal
    19 Dec 2014 | 12:59 am
    AR management is a vital part of the medical billing process and is crucial for the financial stability and success of a medical practice. Accounts receivable basically refers to the sum owed to the medical practice for the services provided but not yet paid for. AR management strategies need to be payer-specific (for reimbursements) and patient-specific (for co-pays, deductibles, etc.). In medical billing, following up claims after submission would reduce accounts receivable by reducing the number of days from submission to payment. Ideally, the claim should be submitted within 72 hours…
  • EHR Systems and ICD-10 Transition

    Meghann Kiernan
    17 Dec 2014 | 11:07 pm
    The delay in transition to the next generation of medical coding, ICD-10-CM/PCS till October 1, 2015 has given both physicians and electronic health record (HER) vendors more time to prepare their systems for the change. ICD-10 offers better representation of disease severity and risk as well as better claim information that provides support to automated processing. In physician practices, a variety of systems such as EHR and billing and practice management need to be customized to support ICD-10. In fact, experts point out that updating their EHR for compliance with ICD-10 is one of the…
  • Reducing Avoidable Hospital Readmissions Can Improve Healthcare Quality

    Natalie Tornese

    The Affordable Care Act (ACA) has introduced several new financial incentives and penalties in order to optimize the overall healthcare system performance. Policy makers are constantly searching for new ways to enhance the quality of patient care and reduce total health insurance spending. Reducing hospital readmissions is one such major initiative launched by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) to improve the healthcare quality in the United States. Hospital readmission is defined as a patient being readmitted within the initial 30 days of hospital stay. In fact, avoidable…
  • Why is it Crucial to Update the U.S. Medical Coding System

    Julie Clements
    15 Dec 2014 | 6:53 pm
    The U.S. is one of the developed nations which is still using ICD-9, many others already having implemented ICD-10 codes. The transition from ICD-9 to ICD-10 by October 1, 2015 is not easy as ICD-9 is deeply rooted in healthcare system and to upgrade the existing systems with the new codes is technically difficult. Implementing ICD-10 will benefit physicians, patients, and the healthcare system in general as the new codes will result in a more accurate reporting system with better support for the clinical decision. It will also pave the way for advancements in diagnosis and treatment options…
  • Medical Specialties Significantly Impacted by ICD-10

    Rajeev Rajagopal
    14 Dec 2014 | 7:37 pm
    The implementation of ICD-10 will dramatically impact the way coding is done. In October 2015, the US health care system will transition to the International Classification of Diseases, 10th Revision, Clinical Modification (ICD-10-CM). Proper attention to these codes is necessary to ensure accurate reimbursement in medical practices. ICD-10 code sets allow for greater specificity and exactness in medical diagnoses and inpatient procedures reporting. Providers will need to work more to document diagnoses as ICD-10 has 8 times more codes than ICD-9. Pediatrics, cardiology and nephrology are the…

    Leaving university I had a lot of unknowns and one singular certainty in mind. I did not want to pursue a career within the IT industry. All the theoretical essays, lectures, and mock software engineering group exercises/presentations had left me with a rather uninterested mind set towards IT. Little did I know that putting it into practice within the industry would lead me to a career that I now love and enjoy so much so that a bank holiday weekend can often leave me genuinely missing work.

  • 1E WakeUp – How It Works

    Ed Aldrich
    15 Dec 2014 | 2:08 pm
    I recently posted a lengthy and detailed blog 1E WakeUp Server and its AgentFinder Process. This article introduced the concept of identifying 1E Agents present on the local subnets within the boundaries of a WakeUp Server installation, and assigning two of them the roles of a primary and alternate agent for their respective subnets. The purpose of this effort comes into play when it becomes necessary to ensure clients machines on a given subnet are up and running at a designated time. This technology uses one of the remote agents as a proxy of the WakeUp server to power on the required…

    Anti-Virus Background: Anti-Virus solutions are common in all environments these days. Hard to find a corporate machine that isn’t running some form of antivirus/protection software. Some Anti-Virus solutions include a client side firewall. The client side firewall allows you to create and deploy firewall policies to your desktop/laptop fleet. These policies will include rules that will define what traffic can pass through the fleet. The traffic coming in or going out will be evaluated against the firewall policy and will then be determined if the traffic is able to continue or is it to be…
  • Test Automation Best Practices

    It’s already proven that automation testing is a required practice if you want continuous and quick delivery of your software product, however it’s essential to do it sincerely so that you can make the delivery smoother and can get maximum benefit out of it. Here are some areas to focus on, to improve the quality of automation. Watch out for “Flaky” tests I often say, “Randomly failing tests are as good as not having any tests – in fact, they’re even worse.” Make sure the tests you write are reliable – i.e. you should be confident that, if it fails, it’s due to a bug…

    Earlier this year Jisse asked if I was prepared to review the book he was writing on Joomla plugins. Proof reading is something that strangely I enjoy doing even if it is quite a slow and tedious task. However I did warn Jisse that I wouldn't be able to review anything other than the language as "I am not a developer". I have always known that plugins are one of the most powerful features of Joomla but as "I am not a developer" I have always had to rely on plugins published on the JED or pay someone to develop them for me.

So I stopped creating shurls and I missed it. During the xmas holidays last year I was reviewing a list of domains that I owned to see if I really needed them all. (Lots of good ideas - not enough…

They generally did it in an attempt to get ISO or similar certification, or to “move their programs to the next level,” and some, I think, attempted it just to prove they did it. Many of those efforts were monumental, costing millions of dollars and taking years to complete. However, a significant number seemed to end in compromise, yielding a smaller end result or totally…

    The dual revolutions of consumerization and cloud have certainly caused much disruption within and around IT. And universally they have also increased the expectations of IT end users. IT-enabled workers and the lines of business they represent are looking for a fast response to new technology needs combined with high levels of service quality—all at a minimum cost. How is it possible for IT to accommodate such demands? Two themes that emerge from both EMA research and practitioner dialogue are “automation” and “service awareness.” Taking a service-centric approach to automation…

    8 Dec 2014 | 9:04 am
    There is no disagreement that the current mag-stripe technology used in the USA and other countries outside of the EU is antiquated and lends itself to fraud. The data is easily copied using various methods from manual card data copying and shoulder surfing, to database compromise and POS terminal malware.  Cards can be reproduced with off-the-shelf plastic blanks and a simple machine you can buy on the Internet. Card fraud worldwide is on track to grow by approximately 19% over 2013. In one recent article, the author that the US accounted for 51% of the credit card fraud by dollars lost,…
  • Innovation Explosion Sets the Stage for New Wave of “Hybrid” Applications

    Julie Craig
    8 Dec 2014 | 8:34 am
    In the past, technology evolution was quantified as generational. So the first generation of computing was based on the vacuum tube, followed by the transistor, integrated circuits, and microprocessors. Even today, multi-generational software and hardware systems are very much alive in many modern data centers. The interesting thing about the generational approach is that it has always been associated with linear progression and evolutionary growth. However the rapid technology evolution we are seeing today is more revolutionary than evolutionary, and IT is bearing the brunt of its impact.

  • ORMs – Love them or hate them?

    18 Dec 2014 | 1:59 am
    For many reasons we have grown to love our ORMs. We enjoy the simplicity of Entity Framework, the way it separates us from the old much unappreciated world of stored procedures and the T-SQL. We also love the nHibernate for its maturity and the amount of features it provides. 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…
  • Clean Code – Is my code always readable?

    11 Dec 2014 | 5:05 am
    Did you ever have to go back to a fragment of code that you wrote a month or year ago? How did it feel? Was it easy or did you have to figure out how it worked from scratch? If you need more than just one look, there is a good chance that you are doing something wrong. And if you scratch you head an think: “What the heck was I thinking?”, you have definitely done it wrong. But what have gone wrong? Most probably the code works fine and at some point you knew it inside out. Why can’t you remember it now? Maybe your code wasn’t written clearly enough and in accordance with best coding…
  • How to use custom fonts in Android apps (and not get fat)

    Daniel Dekański
    1 Aug 2014 | 3:52 am
    Fonts have always been a vital part of brand identity and UI design. With the development of modern Web standards it has become easy to implement customized fonts in websites, but native mobile apps somehow still lag behind in this area. Platform guides warn us against unleashing our creativity in that aspect and state that the built-in fonts have been optimized for memory and performance constraints of mobile devices. I think today, with more and more horse power under the hood of our latest mobile gadgets, we should not limit ourselves to the modest assortment of default typefaces. Going…
  • Software Architecture Canvas – a brother of the business model canvas?

    17 Jul 2014 | 3:57 am
    Have you ever heard of the business model canvas? If so, then you know that it is basically a board of basic elements which need to be evaluated in the process of creating a product and the business around it. Have you ever wondered if such a model could be created for a software design process? I did and here are my thoughts on it. Obviously a detailed implementation cannot be touched by such a “bird’s eye architecture-cheat-sheet” but I think a general description with some design tips can be achieved. So without further ado I bring to you: “The 11 blocks of software…

    It can be difficult to wade through the popular hype around startups – great snacks! equity in the company! cool atmosphere! table tennis! – to get at what it’s actually like to work for one. While the benefits on offer can be tempting, most people don’t realise what working at a startup entails.

    Back in April 2014, researchers released a warning that sent ripples throughout both the business world and the internet community. That warning was the announcement of the discovery of what was called the Heartbleed bug, a vulnerability that had existed for years but had long gone undetected. This defect was estimated to have affected up to two-thirds of internet servers, allowing cyber criminals to go around transport security layer (TLS) protections and grabbing confidential information found in computers or servers that had OpenSSL-powered software. The fact that the bug had existed for…

    Most businesses have developed an intense focus on issues related to security. This shouldn’t come as a surprise considering the stories that have hit the headlines revealing large security breaches at major corporations like Sony, Target and Home Depot. At the same time, many organizations have made great strides in adopting bring your own device (BYOD) policies, allowing employees greater freedom in using their own devices while at work. These two trends, while seemingly unrelated, are actually closely intertwined. One of the biggest worries about BYOD deals with the security risks of…

    Recently Massive Open Online Courses (MOOC’s) have expanded rapidly and as course aggregators became more popular, we are now evaluating some of the most popular education resources currently on the web. Firstly, the dimensions of each site should be considered: Some offers paid courses, whereas others focus on free courses. The rational behind free courses is that Universities and Colleges have an opportunity to showcase some of their best professors and lecturers, which in turn creates an international demand for their programs. What is interesting is that the regions who are early…
  • Giving Students Control in an Online Virtual Classroom

    22 Jun 2014 | 1:53 pm
    Recently we shared some of the latest developments on MOOC’s and learning platforms, we also discussed online degrees and the technology enabling a virtual learning environment. One company, BrainCert shared the following: Teachers can have a difficult time giving up control in a traditional classroom. When the teacher is also seen as the tech go-to person in an online learning environment, giving up control of the whiteboard, microphone, and video/picture posting abilities can be even more difficult. Since the goal of teaching is for students to learn, however, giving up control is…
  • Improve your grades by finding tutors through these 5 online destinations

    Loic Cobbina
    21 Jun 2014 | 1:32 pm
    It is a good idea to be in class and learn from a teacher but the downside of the current schooling system is that each teacher has to deal with too many students. On average there are 20 students in each class and this increases the chance that, by the end of the teaching session, some still don’t get the point that the teacher was trying to put across. To remediate to the problem enunciated, some students are advised to take private tutors. Up to now, nothing can beat a one-on-one form of teaching. The good news is because the world today is interconnected, you or your children do not…

  • Spigen Capsule Case for the Note 4 review

    A few weeks back, I was invited to cover a Globe event in SM Aura. And as luck would have it, I was one of the people in attendance to win a Note 4 (review in the works). So, since the device was free (and quite expensive), I decided to buy a case to protect it. It’s true that a case lessens the aesthetics a beautifully designed device brings, but I’d rather have a covered flagship, than a dinged one.

  • Wait, Meta Descriptions DO Affect Search Results?

    Dave Paul
    5 Dec 2014 | 10:54 am
    In the tangled jungle of factors that affect your website’s search ranking, it’s nice when you come cross something you don’t have to optimize. The longstanding opinion in the SEO community, confirmed by Google itself, was that your meta description is of those rare non-factors. Neil Patel challenges that conventional wisdom in a recent op ed, claiming that your meta description is a major factor in your rankings, albeit an indirect one. For those of us who don’t spend all our time geeking on Internet marketing, let’s start off by defining our terms. Your meta description is one of…
  • Will the EU Break Up Google?

    Dave Paul
    4 Dec 2014 | 6:37 am
    Europe really, really doesn’t like Google. At least, that’s the message that has been sent by increasingly strict European Union rules on how search engines can operate, such as this summer’s “Right to Forget” court decision. But such rulings seem like minor speed bumps compared to the EU’s latest proposal: break Google in half. The decision came late last week in the form of a resolution to split search engines off of their parent companies. The resolution, which passed by an overwhelming 2-to-1 majority, doesn’t call out Google by name—but as the market leader that dominates…
  • Google Penalizes Another Polish Link Network

    Dave Paul
    2 Dec 2014 | 9:37 am
    Search Engine Land reports that Google has taken action against (another) Polish “link network,” also known as a link farm. This sent some ripples through the searchosphere over Thanksgiving weekend, and surely has customers of the link network—who paid money for the privilege of having their search visibility penalized—caught by surprise. The real surprise here, however, is not that Google penalized the link farm and its customers—it’s that anyone was still paying for these types of schemes. What Happened Link directories, link farms or link networks are all different terms for…
  • Is Bing Setting a New Web Design Trend?

    Dave Paul
    1 Dec 2014 | 12:38 pm
    When Google first debuted, there were lots of things that set it apart from other search engines: it was a pioneer in evaluating the links pointing to a website rather than just the keywords that site contained, and offered users better search results. But that’s not something users can easily see, and it’s not what made Google popular. Instead, what set the upstart apart from its competitors was the design of the search page itself. Search engines in the early 2000s were a visual mess. The main search portals of early giants like Yahoo and AOL were crammed with features and information,…
  • How to Succeed in the Age of Organic Search

    Dave Paul
    28 Nov 2014 | 3:59 am
    In a recent piece from Search Engine Land, columnist Trond Lyngbø explained how organic search has changed business from a “selling cycle” of trying to reach consumers to a “buying cycle” of letting consumers reach you. Trond is right, and the new Internet economy means that consumers have the power to do more research, vet more options, and actively avoid being sold to. But when it comes to advice for how to succeed in that environment, Trond is surprisingly vague. He offers general suggestions like “assisting clients with buying decisions” and “sharing information about…

Closer inspection revealed that it was an anti-virus warning that signaled the computer had been infected by a Virus (almost 2 days ago!!). As a techie, I quickly deduced 3 things from the screen. One, the computer was running Windows, and probably an outdated version of Windows. Two, the computer had been infected with Conficker–Conficker was a pretty infamous threat, back in 2008!! And yet, here we are, at Malaysia’s most prestigious airport, and we have a…

    You might think that music and movie publishers are delighted at the closure of The Pirate Bay – and they probably are. At the same time, though, this closure represents a security risk to downloaders, illegal or otherwise. Ask yourself: can you trust the Pirate Bay mirrors that are popping up everywhere? The Pirate Bay: Ship Sunk Swedish police have pulled the plug on The Pirate Bay, a notorious online database of torrent trackers. It was, put simply, the most popular resource for illegal downloaders to find the links to the movies, albums, books and software they were looking to…

    Cycling in Australia centres around the Austral Wheel Race, and no other wheeling event in the world is so rich in traditions. It is an oft-told tale now, this of the Austral, as it has been repeated each year since 1886. But repetition fails to dull the edge of its interest.

As the world’s oldest track race, the Austral is an important heritage cycling event. It is fitting then that the biggest story so far of the 117th Austral (to be run on 20 December in…

  • Clean up your inbox with Automatic Outlook Duplicate Remover

    Mike Williams
    20 Dec 2014 | 7:32 am
    Outlook provides various ways to manage the size of your mailbox (see Mailbox Cleanup in Outlook 2013), but nothing to help you deal with the duplicates that could be cluttering your system. Automatic Outlook Duplicate Remover is a free tool which does exactly what you'd expect, finding and removing duplicates from your Outlook email folders, contacts, calendar, notes and tasks. The program must be installed, for some reason: it’s very simple and could probably be made portable without difficulty. But there's no extra payload, no adware or anything else, and it'll have minimal impact on…
  • You likely won't catch Ebola, but you can help find a cure

    19 Dec 2014 | 3:51 pm
    Ebola has created quite the stir in 2014, for both the right and wrong reasons. There's no doubting it's a serious disease that needs to be wiped out, but panic over catching it has greatly outpaced the actual spread, which is rather slow and involves the transmission of bodily fluids. The CDC outlines basic guidelines to keep you safe. Despite the worry of the public at large, you simply aren't likely to get infected. However, that doesn't mean everything is coming up roses. As I said, it's something we need to eradicate like Polio and Smallpox. The US government has thrown financial…

    Holy cow, where did the time go!? Tomorrow is December 20th, and Christmas is almost here. If you are like me, you have not finished your shopping yet; yes, it is time to start panicking. Sure, I can run down to Bath and Body Works and buy some lotions for gifts, or go to Target and buy a foot-bath or two, but let's be honest -- those aren't the most thoughtful. In my experience, body lotions, foot-baths, Chia Pets, etc., often get tucked-away into a closet to be regifted at a later date. Today however, Microsoft is here to help, announcing some special in-store deals for last minute…
  • Is fashion behind the rise of wearable technology?

    19 Dec 2014 | 8:36 am
    "Today, your task is to create a piece of wearable technology," Lord Sugar told the candidates at the start of a recent episode of BBC1’s The Apprentice. Unfortunately, the boys’ team went on to create a grey jumper with a small inbuilt camera and novelty Christmas lights. Meanwhile, the girls’ team devised a jacket with solar panels on the shoulders and a few lights on the lapels. Not products that are going to grace the catwalk at London Fashion Week any time soon. Yet, for all their painful sound bites and poor decisions, the candidates were right to some extent in thinking that…

He then whipped out his Ericsson mobile phone, double tap on the touchpad to fire up the 750iL. He proceeds to dispense clouds of smoke, throwing the bad guys around his spy ride into disarray and drove the car to him with the rear window wound down, and he dove into the car.

  • Ssd o hdd: Come riconoscerli?

    20 Dec 2014 | 2:00 am
    E’ tragicamente vero: a volte quando compriamo un computer non sempre tutti i dettagli ci vengono spiegati. Sappiamo che ha 500Gb di spazio magari…ma in che tipo? Disco rigido o SSD? Anche se è difficile che ogni venditore commetta uno sbaglio così grossolano, la possibilità c’è sempre e quello che dobbiamo fare è capire come identificare il tipo di memoria che stiamo usando per stipare tutti i nostri dati. Tutto ciò naturalmente se siamo inesperti: per certe persone basta vedere la velocità di trasferimento oppure aprire il PC e vederne i suoi “organi interni” per…

  • Come risparmiare la batteria del Chromebook

    19 Dec 2014 | 2:00 am
    Chi usa i Chromebook? Sono piccoli portatili che utilizzano una tecnologia tutta loro, come se fossero dei giganteschi tablet. Non funzionano come un Notebook normale ma lo sono: questa strana combinazione rende il Chromebook particolare, indicato principalmente per la navigazione e con un consumo di batteria esageratamente basso. Ma è proprio questo di cui vogliamo parlare: anche se la batteria è praticamente garantita per durare tutto il giorno, ci possono essere alcune eccezioni nelle quali la durata non è poi così lunga. Scopriamo le cause e i metodi per allungarne la durata. Il…

    Il Natale è ormai alle porte e ovviamente non poteva mancare un’applicazione che fosse all’altezza dell’occasione. In questo caso, però, il problema è che di applicazioni interessanti ce ne sono ben due. Infatti, sia Google che Microsoft hanno presentato un’applicazione in tema natalizio. Partiamo dal colosso di Mountain View, che ha da poco svelato la nuova app denominata Santa Tracker, con cui gli utenti hanno la possibilità di seguire in ogni momento i movimenti di Santa Claus nel corso della notte tra il 24 e il 25, giocando e divertendosi con il villaggio…

    23 Nov 2014 | 1:19 pm
    Allow me to oversimplify. I am an iPhone user since 2009. Back then, when Apple wasn’t a watch company, the App Store was a fairly easy place to traverse. It may not had curated lists and bundles by Apple, in-app purchases, and Health Kit integraded apps, but its amount of available apps to download was miniscule compared to today (150,000 v 1.2 million.) Fast forward to 2014, newcomers in the the iOS world (many friends of mine included) are overwhelmed by the App Store’s vastness and its inadequacy to expose the great apps.1 So without further ado, here is the list that you can…

    Anil Dash: I teamed up with Kevin McCoy to create monegraph. It’s a system that uses the block chain technology which underpins Bitcoin, but puts it to work in service of artists, so that they can verify that a digital work is an original, with a verifiable provenance. I describe the context of the work in A Bitcoin for Digital Art, my first piece for Medium’s “The Message” collection, and we also showed it off with a demo at the most improbable of venues, TechCrunch‘s Disrupt conference. The response overall has been great, as you can tell from the monegraph…
  • Snapchat’s future

    18 Jun 2014 | 2:29 pm
    Our most basic need right after survival and concurrently a key quality of the human condition is the need to connect and communicate. I’m an avid Snapchat user for almost a year now and sold thenceforth on its ephemeral premise. A friend from the States dragged me into it long before it went huge in Europe as well1 — a great idea in retrospect, since it eliminated a lot of communication friction, both formal and informal. It connects. Snapchat’s “[…] pure sharing, the ‘lowest-commitment form of communication.’”. I’m also a Casey Neistat fan. And today…
  • Automate Git, g++, Dash with Bash

    14 Jun 2014 | 3:53 am
    I was browsing around Github when I found Jim’s Git-aware prompt repo. A nice bash hack to display the current git branch name in your terminal prompt when in a git directory. After installing it struck me1 — I can automate tedious terminal commands with Bash aliases. The general concept is that a Bash alias doesn’t accept parameters itself but it can call a function which does. g++ compiler alias I build my C++ source files with g++ -Wall -O3 foo.cpp -o foo. Now that’s a futile life; typing this multiple times a day. But thank Richard Stallman for…
  • On which a computer passes the Turing Test for the first time

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

    1 Dec 2014 | 11:50 am
    I came into the software world in the middle of the great operating system war, which pitted IBM, Microsoft, and other minor players against each other for dominance over the server operating system. The war was short but fierce, leaving Microsoft and Windows NT/3.1 in control of the market, and everyone else relegated to niche players. The rest as they say is history (that is until Linux started to gain momentum in the mid-2000s). I’ve been assuming the cloud market would develop in a similar fashion to the 1990s server operating system market, with a few key vendors (i.e. Amazon,…

The hall is a gigantic warehouse-sized space on the lower floor of the Venetian whose far sides are hard to see from each edge. I somehow managed to be the first person at breakfast, due in large part to my East Coast body clock and an usher making a mistake in admitting me early.

    Guest Author
    13 Dec 2014 | 5:13 am
    One thing about modern technology is the fact that these days products become obsolete almost as soon as they are released. It wasn’t like that in the glorious days of “Analogue” where things would last for years. Take cameras as an example. I bought my first quality single lens reflex 35mm film camera when I was a teenager and it still works just as well today. However I have owned maybe 4 or 5 Digital cameras in less than 10 years and the main reason for changing was to “upgrade” to the more up to date version. It’s the same with TV’s.

    Michael Arrington
    15 Dec 2014 | 12:54 pm
    Like many people I’ve been fascinated by the Sony hacks. So much interesting information (and gossip) about the inner workings of a major movie studio. I was also waiting for Sony to start balking at the re-publication of a lot of that information by the news sites. And sure enough, they’re now calling it stolen information, and threatening publications that are sharing it with the public. It reminds me distinctly of the situation we found ourselves in in 2009 when a hacker delivered a truckload of internal Twitter information. See In Our Inbox: Hundreds Of Confidential Twitter…

You go through a quick scanning process that involves leaning your phone or tablet against a wall and then spinning slowly in front of it. Once that’s done MTailor has your measurements, which they say are 20% better than actual tailors they used for a study. I’ve never owned tailored shirts but I should have. I have a longer body than average and generally buy tall shirts when I can find them. That’s been harder with…

And quite honestly, this isn’t a symptom you look to fix if you have a ton to do. But the first sign of trouble I noticed was what I call a ‘time collapse.’ If we had met before, I couldn’t tell…

    I have a confession. I don’t really like shopping in stores at Christmas time. It’s not because I don’t like the atmosphere, because I actually do. The Christmas lights, the decorations, and the thought of everyone out shopping to make their loved ones happy does get me in the spirit. However, I also like to […]

    20 Dec 2014 | 7:40 am
    It's entirely possible this could be classified as an actual mental illness. But there's just something about the iPhone 6 Plus that draws me in about a week after I switch back to my iPhone 6. It goes something like this... There's nothing wrong with the iPhone 6. It's the best smartphone not only in the world, but ever made. It's gorgeous, it's luxury-level premium, it's the phone Apple wishes they could have made 7 years ago — it is completely perfect. Though, as someone who has always bought the best available iPhone, it kind of hurts that there's one a bit better. Better is a relative…

  • How Windows Phone Can Gain An Edge In App Gaming

    17 Dec 2014 | 6:54 am
      When Microsoft purchased Minecraft for a whopping $2.5 billion this past summer, there was a spirited reaction online. People asked all kinds of questions: why would Microsoft want Minecraft? What are they going to do with it? How could such a simple game possibly be worth $2.5 billion? We don’t yet have definitive answers to any of these questions, but it’s fair to say that the transaction was something of a sensation. And though it’s important to note that Minecraft is as much an Xbox game as it is a mobile app, the whole story showed just how much attention mobile…

    Nikolai Krill released a major update to CodeRunner today, and I highly recommend it to all programmers no matter what languages you use. In my case I write a lot of code in C++, Objective-C, Ruby, Javascript and HTML as part of large, complex projects. Often I am unsure how best to write a snippet or function. One way would be to create a branch in the project, run and experiment, deal with compiling, branch again to try another solution, compile some more and work it out. But that is a slow process (and quite dangerous if you leave these experimental branches in, or forget to branch at…

The issue was that the UI code in TextMate 2 relied on Ruby 1.8, and Ruby 1.8 is deprecated and no longer installed in OS X 10.10. Michael created a shim to fake Ruby 1.8 until such time as the code base moves to Ruby 2.0, implemented the change in the Gist bundle and it’s working now. You can get the source at GitHub or just wait until it gets propagates via TextMate 2’s bundle update process. Follow the author as @hiltmon on Twitter.
