It hopes to stand out in two major ways: How it charges customers for service To expand how cellular and wireless connections are delivered Rather than paying a bulk rate for data, as one would with carriers like AT&T and Verizon, users would pay only for data they use. …

  • Inside the weird, wonderful and award-winning Melbourne School of Design

    Nick Lavars
    22 May 2015 | 2:33 am
    There was more than a touch of irony about the University of Melbourne's old architecture building. As the breeding ground for generations of Australia's designers and builders, the plain brick building had come to be known as one of the campuses most drab and uninspiring structures. But a simmering discontent boiled over in 2009, when the university announced plans to knock it down and start again. Now standing in its place is a multi award-winning building that's as visually arresting as it is environmentally-friendly. The Melbourne School of Design places a premium on sustainability and…

    DrumPants, the wireless device that converts your pants into a wearable MIDI controller and music sequencer, can now bring a different kind of music to the ears of those around you. Its creators have recently started a beta test program that uses DrumPants triggers (sensor strips that wirelessly connect to a control box) to control lights and doors and to give a voice to those who have none. People with injuries or disorders that limit their ability to speak can tap the trigger on their body or wheelchair to activate an app that reads out loud any customizable statements or text messages,…

In an online Q&A, Zuckerberg suggested that a lifetime spent playing video games could prep kids and young adults for careers as programmers. "I actually think giving people the opportunity to play around with different stuff is one of the best things you can do," he told the audience.

  • Asteroid Risk Greatly Overestimated By Almost Everyone

    22 May 2015 | 9:28 am
    StartsWithABang writes: When it comes to risk assessment, there's one type that humans are notoriously bad at: the very low-frequency but high-consequence risks and rewards. It's why so many of us are so eager to play the lottery, and simultaneously why we're catastrophically afraid of ebola and plane crashes, when we're far more likely to die from something mundane, like getting hit by a truck. One of the examples where science and this type of fear-based fallacy intersect is the science of asteroid strikes. With all we know about asteroids today, here's the actual risk to humanity, and it's…
  • New Class of "Non-Joulian" Magnets Change Volume In Magnetic Field

    Zothecula notes an announcement from the University of Maryland saying they have developed a new class of magnets, called "Non-Joulian" magnets, which physically expand in the presence of a magnetic field. "In the 1840s, physicist James Prescott Joule discovered that iron-based magnetic materials changed their shape but not their volume when placed in a magnetic field. This phenomenon is referred to as "Joule Magnetostriction," and since its discovery 175 years ago, all magnets have been characterized on this basis." Another significant property of these new magnets is that they can harvest…

    Tim Bajarin
    22 May 2015 | 1:00 am
    After WWII, with the return of millions of G.I.’s who gained access to government loans to buy houses, the concept of the middle class in the US began to expand. As they assimilated back into the US and, more importantly, became an meaningful part of the United States’ economic recovery by getting jobs, buying homes and having disposable income, it expanded our consuming culture and helped make the US the prosperous nation we are today.  What we experienced with the rise of the US middle class in the 1950s has started to take place in broader international markets today.

  • FBI Director Claims That The World's Most Knowledgeable Cybersecurity Experts Are Not 'Fair Minded' About Encryption Backdoors

    Mike Masnick
    22 May 2015 | 9:34 am
    Earlier this week, we noted that a huge list of companies, non-profits and cybersecurity experts had signed a letter to the White House about the stupidity and danger of trying to order backdoors into encryption (disclaimer: we signed the letter as well). While many in the press focused on the companies that had signed onto the letter (including Google, Apple, Cisco, Microsoft, Twitter and Facebook), as we noted, what was much more interesting was the long list of cybersecurity/encryption experts who signed onto the letter. Just in case you don't feel like searching it out, I'll post the…
  • Why Is The Attorney General Making Claims About PATRIOT Act That Her Own Agency's Report Says Are Not True?

    Mike Masnick
    22 May 2015 | 8:27 am
    We already posted about the new DOJ Inspector General report analyzing the FBI's use of the PATRIOT Act's Section 215 "business records" collection. Among the various things in the unredacted sections of the report is yet another claim (following on many similar statements) that the Section 215 program has never been shown to actually be that useful: That wasn't all that interesting on its own, given how many times others (including many with the security clearance and access to know) have made the same point. But what's incredibly troubling is that the very same day that this report came…

  • 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…

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…

    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…

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…

    Russia wants to develop alternatives to proprietary or partly closed mobile operating systems by using open source tools as a foundation, Minister of Telecom and Mass Communications Nikolay Nikiforov said last week. "Success would make a fairly significant impact on the go-to market plans of numerous IT vendors. We are seeing the beginnings of similar efforts in China, a market that has long been central to many vendors' future plans and hopes," said Charles King, principal analyst at Pund-IT.

  • 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.

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

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

    Ronald Barba
    22 May 2015 | 11:00 am
    Not all “great” startup ideas are actually great. I’m sure by now we’ve all heard of pitches from at least ten people about the next “Uber for X” or “Product Hunt for Y”, and have all been equally disappointed by the lack of originality in many of those ideas. In a recent post published three days ago on r/startups, Reddit user tianan dives into what he believes are companies that are almost always a bad idea. The post has gotten a fairly large number of upvotes since it was posted on Reddit. While, sure, many others in the startup space can…

    If you took one look at the Denver based company Notion I would bet serious money that you would say something like: “Oh, it’s a home security system”. Now, to an extent you would be correct, but it goes well beyond that. Brett Jurgens, CEO, would actually say that Notion is all about home awareness, a realm that does in fact encompass security. Every sensor in the kit also detects when doors are open, the temperature of a room, water leaks, lights, and smoke alarms. You simply name each sensor in your setup so the software can alert you to whatever you want to know, and the $199 kit…

    DC and New York topped Mattermark’s list of the fastest-growing states for startups in 2014, beating out California for the top spots. While New York frequently ranks high on such lists, this is a particularly big validator for the DC area, which has seen more and more activity in the tech scene in the last decade. “Some companies may be migrating to DC where they can lobby or otherwise affect policy or win government contracts. New York may be attracting companies due to its status as a financial hub and proximity to Europe,” the 2014 Startup Traction Report said. The South also made a…

  • Financial Tips For Women Hoping To Retire Someday

    2 May 2015 | 3:39 pm
    The sad truth remains that women earn less over their lifetime than men, which means they also typically have less saved for retirement. This is made all the more unfortunate by the fact that women also live longer than men, so their limited savings needs to last even longer!

    Today was a pretty normal day for the most part. Took Selena in for a quick checkup vet visit. Went to work and audited an advanced Excel class (that I’ll be teaching soon). Regular, normal stuff. Except when you apply a ‘space’ layer to the day. Driving home from the clinic with Selena, I heard Go! — a very cool music / archival audio mashup by Public System from their new The Race For Space album. Video below. Then also noted that Sid Meier’s Starships is due out for iOS. Yes, video below. iTunes link when it’s live on iTunes. And finally also noted that Buzz Aldrin’s Space…

  • You've Never Seen a Game of Pac-Man Like This

    22 May 2015 | 10:07 am
    If there's anything better than celebrating Pac-Man's 35th birthday , it's celebrating with a Pac-Man Doctor Who game.

Play as the Eleventh Doctor, complete with a mop of brown hair sitting on top of that familiar yellow character, as you try to exterminate all the Daleks throughout the maze before they exterminate you. Sonic screwdrivers double as the original game's bonus fruits, and the Dalek chant "Exterminate!" plays through the game. To play, simply follow this link.

While many in the press focused on the companies that had signed onto the letter (including Google, Apple, Cisco, Microsoft, Twitter and Facebook), as we noted, what was much more interesting was the long list of cybersecurity/encryption experts who signed onto the letter. Just in case you don't feel like searching it out, I'll post the…
  • Why Is The Attorney General Making Claims About PATRIOT Act That Her Own Agency's Report Says Are Not True?

    Mike Masnick
    22 May 2015 | 8:27 am
    We already posted about the new DOJ Inspector General report analyzing the FBI's use of the PATRIOT Act's Section 215 "business records" collection. Among the various things in the unredacted sections of the report is yet another claim (following on many similar statements) that the Section 215 program has never been shown to actually be that useful: That wasn't all that interesting on its own, given how many times others (including many with the security clearance and access to know) have made the same point. But what's incredibly troubling is that the very same day that this report came…

  • Cutting the cord has been a great decision so far

    C.K. Sample III
    12 May 2015 | 2:55 pm
    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…

    7 May 2015 | 7:48 pm
    This week, I finally got sick of paying a premium for ALL THE CHANNELS provided by Time Warner Cable. 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…

I was literally exhausted and became sick with a 102.5F fever after the two and a half days of intensive filming we did putting together the above shorts for Chaotic Moon’s sponsorship of The Moontower Comedy Festival, which is happening today through the 25th right here in Austin, Texas. If you go to the show, you’ll see some of these between the acts. If you’re there Friday night, hopefully I’ll see you there!

    Ruskin Bond turned 81 today. You may not have put a finger to it, but the daydream image we have of writing in a tiny cottage on the hilltops probably came from Ruskin Bond and his indelible association with Mussoorie. Indeed, his books reek of the atmosphere of the hills- mysterious and beguiling; with the mist and rain, the free-spiritedness, the lush greenery-unhurried and lazy to catch up; they are symbolic of his writing style. Old at age but agile in the mind, any article or story on him will likely contain a quote or interaction with the man himself. And a trip to Mussoorie? You are…

Apple and the United States Department of Justice had, after all, been exchanging jabs about him. “I'd like to be heard, your Honor, if I can,” he told the judge, who said they’d need to “exhaust the arguments of the main combatants” first. Wanting to interject would be understandable, considering how long Bromwich and Apple had been putting up their dukes inside and outside of court in a bloody fight over cash and corporate power.

Here's a better way to think about it - and without thinking about it, the reason why I think most people aren't frustrated or confused by the crown button after a week or so. It's best to think of Apple Watch as having two modes: watch mode, and app mode. You do not need to understand this to use the watch. Most Apple Watch owners will never really think about this.

The game makes use of several GameWorks technologies, most notably HBAO+ and HairWorks. The latter, which adds tens of thousands of tessellated hair strands to characters, dramatically decreases frame rate performance on AMD graphics cards, sometimes by as much as 50 percent. I got bitten by this just the other day. I'm currently enjoying my time with…

  • 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…

    I’m reading (and listening to) David McCullough’s wonderful new book, The Wright Brothers. This isn’t a review, as I’ve only read about one-third of the book. 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. The American press had absolutely no interest in — nor belief in…

    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…

    “Content is kind of a wanky term, which we have got to reframe. It’s commoditized, overused and misunderstood. (Our approach is) brand expression, it’s storytelling. What we’re trying to do is be topical, be loved, be endearing, be enduring and always, always try to surprise and delight. That’s the outcome we desire, what keeps us up at night and excited.” Peter McGuinness Chief Marketing Officer, Chobani (via: Digiday) Related posts: Not only am I a content marketer, this is a content marketing blog Great example of the third rule of marketing with content: Keep it simple…

    This week’s Idea Email at looks at the disconnect between the role infographics played during the late 1970s and 1980s and the role played today by what are called infographics. The idea places special emphasis on the use by infographics pioneer Nigel Holmes of the term “explanation graphics.” Quote: “In the past, the term infographics referred to a style of visual storytelling that sought to make the complex simple and the confusing comprehensible. Today, infographics is a term applied to a style of illustration that often displays bullet points of…

    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.

  • An Affordable Thunderbolt 2 Dock with 4K and Dual Display Support

    Terry White
    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

    Terry White
    4 May 2015 | 9:11 pm
    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.
  • Review: Elgato Avea iPhone, iPad & Apple Watch Controlled LED Lightbulb

    Terry White
    3 May 2015 | 9:11 pm
    I love home automation products. My first X10 remote controlled lights date back to the early 1980’s. Long before smartphones and bluetooth wireless. 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…
  • A Fast Thunderbolt/USB 3 Portable SSD

    Terry White
    29 Apr 2015 | 9:11 pm
    You can never have too much storage and fast external storage is even better. A few years back I bought the first Elgato External SSD and my only complaint with it was the fact that it only had a single Thunderbolt port. That pretty much killed the use that I thought I would have for it which was to boot from it during certain presentations. Since the MacBook Pros back then only had one Thunderbolt port I couldn’t connect the drive and an external display/projector at the same time. Fast forward to today and the NEW Elgato Thunderbolt Drive + and while we still get a single Thunderbolt…

The network has not yet commented on whether the show is canceled, but there have been many developments over the last few days that may well have contributed to the decision to pull the show. 19 Kids and Counting became the topic of hot conversation when it came to light that “cast member” Josh Duggar admitted to having molested as many as five girls when he was 14 years old himself. According to reports, some of these girls were his own sisters. For days after the news broke, TLC made no comment about the…

Shirley Bassey knows a thing or two about class and being sexy at the same time. In her heyday, Shirley Bassey was the original diva. Her singer career has spanned nearly six decades and her experience says that these girls should be working on their talent, not trying to out-raunch each other on the red carpet. “It’s like they’re all in competition with each other for who can wear the skimpiest outfit. In my day it was for the stage only, you didn’t go out…

    Last year, Google announced an improvement to location extensions which saw businesses with multiple locations being able to display up to three on their mobile search ads. Google has now made a new improvement, saying it will show three or four different businesses for location-related searches, such as “nearby auto repair” for example. Each of these units will feature click-to-call and directions, and the new format organizes information so that users can compare options and take action (like call or visit). Businesses with location extensions enabled are eligible to show these…

    In the attempt to completely comply by the MNP policies set by TRAI, the telecom operators have begun rolling out an update where the users will be now able to make STD calls from their mobile device without having to include the prefix of +91 or 0. The update has now started rolling out and it has been reported that the users on the network of Airtel from Maharashtra and Delhi are already experiencing this as calls are going through without the need of 0 or +91, which has certainly simplified calling and enhanced the entire experience.

    Apple has been using the Helvetica Neue font both for its desktops and mobile devices. Both OSX 10.10 and iOS 8 come with Helvetica Neue pre-installed as default fonts though that could well be about to change. According to a report in 9to5Mac, Apple is all but set to move away from the long term relationship with Helvetica and replace the font with San Francisco in iOS 9 and OSX 10.11. The San Francisco typeface has been used on the Apple Watch already and largely has been credited to have been cleaner and sleeker font on smaller displays as compared to Helvetica. It is due to this easy…

Along with, Pratt and Whitney and Rolls Royse, the triumvirate form the key propulsion core of pretty much every major passenger aircraft out there.

We have seen several aviation parts in the past being manufactured using 3D printers, especially the non-load carrying components like the fairings. The most recent development…

    A quick look at modern day video games, and it becomes evident how much impact technology has had on how we experience gaming today. Just about two decades ago, the 16-bit graphics of the Super Nintendo and Sega Genesis were the most popular consoles. While gameplay was still quite entertaining on those systems, it was the graphics that left too much to be desired.

  • 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.

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…

    22 May 2015 | 6:56 am
    Rumours are going around that Google plans to enter the Internet of Things space with an operating system of their own. Called “Brillo,” the OS will reportedly only need as little as 32MB or 64MB of RAM to function, which is a departure from the 512MB needed by Android. If there is any truth behind these rumours, this will help out OEMs who no longer need to design IoT communication schemes. This will also give Google a great position as backbone of the future smart homes. Next week’s I/O Developers Conference should clarify if there’s any truth to these reports.

Many of us have phones and tablets made by many different OEMs and we look to get power banks that will be suitable with most of the devices we have. We’ve used the Xiaomi 10400 mAh…

    Jean-Louis Gassée
    17 May 2015 | 1:07 pm
    by Jean-Louis Gassée Ending a work relationship needn’t be complicated or traumatic. It can be done in a sane and respectful way if a clean framework is set up at hiring time. In an August, 2012 Monday Note titled The HR-Less Performance Review I described a sane, humane way for an employer to conduct the dreaded Performance Review. The script is simple: Your performance meets or exceeds requirements. You get to keep your job. Your salary increase is x%. When you’re ready, allow me to offer a few observations and suggestions that could help improve your performance and our relationship:…

    by Jean-Louis Gassée In practice, the three slide pitch may be impossibly concise. This week, we’ll look at the seven slide variation. After last week’s Monday Note, Three Slides Then Shut Up – The Art of The Pitch, I was subjected to a bit of email ribbing. My honorable correspondents, many of them entrepreneurs themselves, questioned my rationality, insisting that it’s psychologically and emotionally impossible for entrepreneurs to be so boldly concise as to limit their presentations to three slides. Indeed, how many three-slide presentations had I actually seen in a decade+ of…
  • Circa: What went wrong

    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…

    by Jean-Louis Gassée This week, we look at pitches, at the stories entrepreneurs tell investors. The best pitches aren’t really pitches. 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.

    There is no better gift for children of any age than a book – but once you’ve exhausted your own childhood favorites, where do you turn to for other options? We, naturally, turned  to the Internet and found great online tools for finding the perfect children’s book.

Medicare coverage on a routine basis is available only for a few vaccines.

Medical codes for vaccine administration depend on the route of administration, the number of components in the vaccine, and the patient’s age – specifying…

Well in this article I shall attempt to do just that, you can judge. So what’s it all about? What is this active and passive voice thing? Why should I care? Phew that’s a lot of questions, good ones too. It’s all about communicating effectively (spoiler, there’s a…

  • More than one order matters

    Originally posted on: matters. In real life when you’re in a library or a city or in your kitchen. And in software development. Order, the right order, helps understanding. Where there is order orientation is easier. Compare a city like Mannheim, Germany: …to Algier’s traditional quarters, the Casbah: Where, do you think, it would be easier for you to find the house of a friend? Order is helpful, even important. But often order is hard to create and/or to maintain. Why’s that?

Those special releases are made specifically for Joomla developers to use to both test the changes in the upcoming release AND to check that their own code is still working as intended. Despite this after every release we see the same extension and template developers wait until AFTER the release before they even look at the code and test their own work. Then they are in a mad panic and rush to release updates. Meanwhile…

    The Open Networking User Group (ONUG) is a community of IT executives that are using their combined buying power to influence the networking industry. Members hail from companies such as Bank of America, JPMorgan Chase and Fidelity Investments. ONUG’s goal is to specify requirements and reference architectures for products that are open, more affordable and more agile than what vendors traditionally offer.

    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. For instance, SDN may make it easier for cloud administrators to provision network services and connectivity for a new application, but how do you ensure that your new programmable network remains compliant with configuration controls and policies? 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.

    In a perfect world, all business processes would be automated and all work tasks would be accomplished with the click of a button. This idyllic work experience seems to be the realization of Plato’s utopia…or, if you prefer, the world of the Jetsons. Regrettably, however, we clearly do not live in a perfect world. Put simply, while any repeatable process can be automated, not every process is repeatable, so automation is not a practical solution in all cases. This is particularly a problem for enterprises since business productivity is almost entirely dependent on the rapid and accurate…

This update should solve a known issue that was causing the Microsoft Edge browser to crash when running on PCs with AMD graphics chips. Windows Insider leader Gabriel Aul first revealed the issue on Twitter before the launch of build 10122 and asked for people to vote on whether to wait until it was fixed before releasing it or go ahead and make the build available to Fast ring users. In the end, the decision was to launch the build before…

    I think we all agree that our work is all about achieving high performance, scalable and most importantly simple solutions to complex problems. 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…

Ok, it is “just” a preview and may be you shouldn’t use it for your business, but on the other hand why not give it a try. Recent previews of Microsoft solutions are rather stable. So, I tried, but the installation included some unpleasant surprises. 1. Hard to download Office 2011 for Mac used to be a lot better than the version for the Windows users several years ago.

And yes, I really do mean that, and yes, the emphasis on Political Correctness is indeed on Political. But do not be fooled. What you think is harmless garden variety…

  • The Most Common Innovation Mistake to Avoid

    R Bielski
    5 May 2015 | 7:45 am
    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…

    Ad-hoc research is often the most used method by which we understand our markets and new innovations. Most of us work on evolving markets that often have very specific questions which we feel we need to address and ask of consumers. For most of us these questions change nearly every time we look at a new innovation. Even in the case of incremental adjustments we often come up with new aspects we hadn’t thought of before. This leads to questions that we just have to ask this time even though we have nothing to compare the answers to, and which we may not ask next time. We fear leaving a…

    It’s been nearly a year since the EU passed its “Right to Be Forgotten” law (RTBF). Under the law Google established an application process for Europeans to get information about them expunged from searches, if it met certain criterion. So how have those requests been going? Well, decide for yourself: Google has denied 70 percent of them. The figure comes from an advocacy site run by a European reputation management company. Google has received more than a quarter of a million RTBF requests, and by the company’s count over two thirds of them have been rejected.

A reverse image search is what you do when you already have the image in hand, but want to find out more about it. Generally you upload the image to the search engine, or type in the URL of the image you have in mind. Then the search engine checks its database and shows you everywhere on the web that your image is posted. Not too shabby. Reverse image searches are nothing new, but they’ve been improving a…

Did the new search results change that image? It would seem not, based on a great spoof by the New Yorker: Getting out of her vintage cast-iron bed, Pinterest trips on a pile of antlers. Whoops! She must have been arranging wall clusters in her sleep again. She puts the antlers back where they belong—on the head of the live deer that hangs out by her window. Then…

The idea that a criminal group could electronically take control of a plane — or flight control system or power grid — is feasible. As everything connects to the internet we become more and more vulnerable to cybercrime. In February, the world found out that the Carbanak criminal organization had stolen up to $1 billion from…

Microsoft wanted to pay $55 billion and CEO Marc Benioff kept raising the price, at one point asking $70 billion. Salesforce's stock has been trading at all-time highs — partly because of rumors about a take-over, but also because the company has had some really good quarterly earnings and is growing fast.

Let that sink in for a bit. The panel is so freaking thin that it can be stuck to the wall with a magnetic mat. Moreover, it can then be peeled off like a wallpaper. In fact, you can see the images below of it in action. However, don’t get your hopes too high. While it may be much thinner than flagship OLED televisions right now, the panel likely doesn’t…

    One of the most heartbreaking experiences I’ve had when advising people about WordPress was with a friend of mine who had spent weeks setting up her site, writing content, and posting images, only to lose everything just as she was about to launch because she mistyped a command on her VPS’s command line.

Whilst visiting a local shop the other day something incredibly strange happened. I went to purchase something using my debit card, virtually all shops accept them these days. Only to be told "Sorry we don't accept card payments. There is a cash machine down the road."So what did I do? I went and made the purchase from a shop that does take card payments. I didn't have the time to go cash machine hunting. Ok, my story probably isn't that strange, but it shows that in…

    Even in a fantasy world, millennials could journey with the Lord of the Rings characters. Aragorn struggles to accept his true identity. Eowyn battles prejudice and unrequited love. Frodo is the smallest and most unlikely hero — and even with powerful friends, he’s not guaranteed to win. I’ve heard more than one friend claim (and who can blame them) that their sexual awakening happened around when the exhausted, sweaty Aragorn opened the doors of Edoras in slow motion. Many young people, myself included, started writing our own fantasy stories inspired by the movies. And our throats…

In point of fact, the MILF leadership has expressly affirmed his authority and the binding effect of his acts. So, what’s the big deal? Moreover, the government’s peace panel headed by Miriam Coronel Ferrer, including Secretary Teresita Deles, admitted knowledge of Iqbal’s nom de guerre; in fact, they also know his real name. So, his use of a fictitious name is not an issue in assessing…

    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…

They help us to stay productive and efficient, and they’re used on a daily basis. As you can imagine, it becomes something of a catastrophe when our PCs stop working!

    Search engine optimisation is perhaps one of the most confusing aspects of online marketing. Few people understand it, and even fewer execute it well. Google have done a fantastic job of refining and honing its algorithm. They make regular changes to ensure they serve the best and most relevant content to their users. However, these constant changes and updates make it a nightmare for marketers and websites. Every time Google updates its algorithm, it changes the world of SEO. Essentially, everything you were told to do last year no longer works! Worse still, continuing to follow outdated…

    There was more than a touch of irony about the University of Melbourne's old architecture building. As the breeding ground for generations of Australia's designers and builders, the plain brick building had come to be known as one of the campuses most drab and uninspiring structures. But a simmering discontent boiled over in 2009, when the university announced plans to knock it down and start again. Now standing in its place is a multi award-winning building that's as visually arresting as it is environmentally-friendly. The Melbourne School of Design places a premium on sustainability and…

    Journalists are often expected to engage with social media. Esther Vargas/Flickr, CC BY-SAThe one defining ideal of journalism is the belief that journalists should “speak the truth” even when the truth may be contested, unpopular or damaging. The ideal of freedom of expression is the bedrock of journalism, hard won since “freedom of the press” meant being able to own and operate a printing press, free of government control and without a licence. For nearly 500 years journalists have maintained a significant degree of autonomy despite the constant tension with the editorial,…

  • Razer Firefly is the coolest mouse pad ever

    Brian Fagioli
    22 May 2015 | 10:07 am
    Depending on your age, you may or may not remember when mice had rubber balls to track movement. It was horrible, as they would often get clogged and required cleaning. They also benefited from a mouse pad, as the ball would work better on it than on a desk surface. Nowadays, we have optical and laser mice, which track much better on most desk surfaces. In other words, for the most part, no mouse pad is needed. Gamers, however, still invest in mouse pads (aka mouse mats) as a way to get an edge in competitions.

  • 24 hours with Apple Watch [First-impressions review]

    Wayne Williams
    22 May 2015 | 6:41 am
    After Tim Cook demoed the Apple Watch at the Spring Forward event two months ago I declared I should want an Apple Watch -- but I don't. Despite being an iPhone owner and a watch wearer, I felt the new device was an "unfocused mess" and features like talking to your wrist and sending drawings to fellow Watch-owning friends just didn’t appeal. They were something only a ten year old would be interested in. The way Watch was being retailed -- online only, with crazy delays -- didn’t impress me either. In fact, I called Apple’s launch a brand-damaging botch job. I still stand by that…

Julien Laurat at the Université Pierre et Marie Curie explains that using fibres would make the memories more compatible with existing optical-information technology.

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. I’m not talking about licensing but rather about product trial-ability. One approach championed by HP, EMC, IBM and others is to offer their software defined storage in a new way. Free & frictionless? Howard Marks…
  • EMCWorld2015 Day 2&3 news

    6 May 2015 | 7:17 pm
    Some additional news from EMCWorld2015 this week: EMC announced directed availability for DSSD, their Rack scale shared Flash storage solution using a PCIe3 (switched) fabric with 36 dual ported, flash modules, which hold 512 NAND chips for 144TB NAND flash storage. On the stage floor they had a demonstration pitting a  40 node Hadoop cluster with DAS against a 15 node Hadoop cluster using the DSSD, both running HIVE and working on the same Query. By the time the 40node/DAS solution got to about 2% of the query completion the 15node/DSSD based cluster had finished the query without…

    We are at EMCWorld2015 in Vegas this week. Day 1 was great with new XtremIO 4.0, “The Beast”, new enhanced Data Protection, and a new VCE VxRACK converged infrastructure solution announcements. Somewhere in all the hoopla I saw an all flash VNXe appliance and VMAX3 with a cloud storage tier but these seemed to be just teasers. XtremIO 4.0 The new hardware provides 40TB per X-brick and with compression/dedupe and the new 8-Xbrick cluster provides 320TB raw or 1.9PB effective capacity. As XtremIO supports 150K mixed IOPS/XBrick, an 8-Xbrick cluster could do 1.2M IOPS or with 250K…

    Technology has increased at a rapid rate and has changed the lives of people across the globe. In just a short span of human history, we’ve managed to create technology that takes the power of the original IBM supercomputers and houses the equivalent in a little USB stick.

    On a recent long drive to Upstate New York, my wife asked me for the books that impacted my life. I found it surprising how easily I could name each book, and was even able to recall the look and feel of my personal copy (some of which sadly did not survive my wife's many Stalinistic book purges). Here is my list: Four Steps to the Epiphany I’d spent years thinking great products came from great ideas.

The presentations were over, the beer had run out, and everyone was enjoying some well deserved post-hackathon socializing. We followed the same format as our last hackathon: at 5 PM Wednesday we stopped all engineering activities to allow the team to focus on a project of their choosing for the next 24 hours.

    If you didn’t read the murmuring from the CEO of Zenefits responding to a candidate’s post on Quora, it is worth a read (note: unfortunately he later edited out his original reply in which he stated the offer was rescinded). As a publicity stunt, it probably worked wonders for Zenefits. Yes, I know they are valued at over a billion dollars. But there is a good reason no one really knows about them: the mere mention of the words “benefits broker” and “automating benefits on-boarding” has a narcoleptic effect on most human beings. The general feedback on social media was decidedly…

    Just like we have founders of a business, we also have founding customers. These are customers who took a chance on you at the earliest stages when there was very little to take a chance on. While they may have paid for your product in those early days, they more than likely were buying into your vision. Their unique expertise and experience made it so they could see what many others could not: potential. While on my current business trip, I had a chance to spend time with one of my founding customers. Today they are a fast growing technology company nearing an IPO; two and a half years ago…

    I just finished Tony Hsieh’s book, Delivering Happiness, which is an autobiography of his tech journey from Illinois to the acquisition of Zappos by Amazon. As an avid reader of tech non-fiction, I can’t get enough startup stories behind the story. It’s great to get away from the sterile founding stories that go from idea to success with no interruption. The real stories are always messier, a lot less certain of themselves, and much more interesting. Tony’s book was a little off the beaten path for me since I was neither a customer of Zappos nor someone who followed his career. The…

    Over the last ten years YouTube has become increasingly ingrained in our lives, creating its own celebrities that have following bigger than most popstars, and defining online video. 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. Bandwidth improved just as the quality of…

    2 Apr 2015 | 6:06 am
    Remember when tablets first came out and no one really saw the point, but they found their place? Well it seems the tech world is now making room for smartwatches. While some of the world may still be sceptical, at least five new watches are coming out this year hinting that Smart Watches will be taking centre stage in 2015. Now that Apple are finally playing catch up, the Android versus Apple battle commences once again and our friends at Mobile Phones Direct review the top 4 smart watches out on the market: Apple Watch, Moto 360, LG Watch G R and Kickstarter’s most successful project: the…

    The internet has become something of a miracle worker when it comes to finding and connecting with new customers.

While companies of any size can take advantage […]

      Interop is one of the most important trade shows for IT professionals, and I was thrilled to be able to represent Experts Exchange in Vegas. Our booth may have been small, but the reception we received by you, the community, was definitely not. Many attendees approached us at the show, thanking us for the platform they use every day to make their jobs easier. As the Community Manager, I went to Interop with the intention of welcoming new members and experts into the fold, but I got so much more out of it.

    28 Apr 2015 | 6:00 am
    There’s a lot of silliness out there – it must be the weather – that has caught my attention recently. The one that really jumped out was that the people who control Internet domain names, ICANN, stated that they need the US government to decide what to do with the company that owns the rights to the .sucks domain. “It’s not our problem,” ICANN says. Todd L’Herrou sent me this photo of one of his colleagues (not really, it’s the son of one of his colleagues) wearing the fabulous new child’s t-shirt from Experts Exchange. Also new is the…

    For those of you who participated in one of those tournament things, you’ll be amused to hear that the other half’s bracket blew up when Iowa State lost the second game of the first day. Perhaps he should have picked a different game and maybe used a different search engine. I don’t know what the weather is like in your part of the world, but we’ve been dealing with spring for about a month now. That always means lots of new things (and a few recycled old ones). One that caught everyone’s attention was a patent that was granted to Boeing for a force field.

    Chicken Little was right. Twice. Maybe even three times. The other half wants to know when he can get high speed Internet and whether the FCC’s new rules apply or whether he needs to go send a dingo to Congress by jetpack. One of the reasons I don’t use Gmail all that much is because there are a gazillion people who have sent me email and I have no idea who they are or why they wrote to me five years ago. I have to admit that it’s a typical situation – I could have done a little digging and figured it all out – but the people at CNet posted how-to turn off the…

But there’s a pretty straightforward list that helps you navigate what information Google stores about you. Oh, and don’t forget to come up with decent passwords. It seems like every few days, there is a story about the latest scam to hit – usually about two weeks after it’s been filling our inboxes. The most…

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.

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…

    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…

    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…

    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.

    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.

    Have you seen the Apple Watch's "Us" ad? The one-minute spot presents several vignettes of humans interacting from afar by way of wrist, from sending tiny sketches to checking various chat notifications. It's a technically accurate, if wholly idyllic, take on the experience: You, too, can show off your cursive skills to a partner — or send them haptic proof that you're still among the living. Messaging is a huge component of the Apple Watch — so much so that it dedicated a hardware button for quickly communicating with your closest friends. But how much of that is novelty and how much is…

  • Play this crazy Pac-Man text adventure on the game's 35th anniversary

    Chris Plante
    22 May 2015 | 9:29 am
    Thirty-five years ago Pac-Man was released in arcades, rapidly becoming one of the greatest and oddest pop culture touchstones of its era. People got really excited about what looked like a half-eaten pie taking pills. You could celebrate this anniversary by singing the unofficial Pac-Man song, playing the original game in your browser, or watching the trailer for that Adam Sandler Pixels movie. Some of those options are surely better than others. I celebrated by making a text adventure inspired by Pac-Man. I think you might enjoy it. It has highs and lows and multiple endings — nothing…
  • Apple could give old iPhones and iPads new life with iOS 9

    Jacob Kastrenakes
    22 May 2015 | 9:14 am
    The next versions of iOS and OS X are supposed to focus on performance and stability instead of new features, and that focus on performance could extend all the way back to devices that Apple released three and four years ago. According to 9to5Mac, a focus of iOS 9 has been optimizing the OS for old devices, including the iPhone 4S and iPad mini, neither of which handles iOS 8 very well. That'd be a change for Apple, which typically drops support for devices once they get that old. Apple is reported to have built a "core version" of iOS 9 that's designed for these older devices. They will…
  • Sports policies that exclude women with high testosterone must end, experts say

    Arielle Duhaime-Ross
    22 May 2015 | 9:07 am
    Last summer, Indian sprinter Dutee Chand was barred from competing against other women because of a testosterone policy. Track’s governing body, the International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF), told her that she could only return to the sport after she lowered her natural testosterone levels to ones that were beneath the IAAF’s guidelines. To do that, she would have to have to undergo surgery, or take hormone-suppressing drugs. She refused and is now fighting the decision. Continue reading…

  • Codeless enterprise app platforms: A further democratisation of mobility

    21 May 2015 | 4:58 pm
    (c) It’s the age old problem; employees want applications to improve their productivity, but IT, concerned with keeping the lights on, is unable to acquiesce to their requests. A new report from Smith’s Point Analytics argues the benefits of codeless mobile app platforms. The report, sponsored by Globo, Altova and Umajin, assesses three ways in which organisations can benefit from codeless platforms; templates in a visual editor, componentised drag and drop editors as a plug-in, and drag and drop WYSIWYG visual editors. With the latter, while there is more…

It’s long been the same old story; employees’ actions on mobile devices are a threat to their employers. Previously, it was assumed that they weren’t aware of the risks.
